Estevan’s MADD chapter officially launched By David Willberg

Estevan is now home to a local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). A launch was held Tuesday afternoon at City Hall, with representatives from numerous agencies and organizations in attendance. Connie Hagel, a long-time resident of Estevan, will be the chapter’s volunteer community leader. “I’m a mother. I’m a grandmother. Why not go and get involved with something that impacts everyone?” she said. “Yes, impaired driving impacts everyone.” She views MADD as a great opportunity to give

back, and to take a stand against a serious issue in the community. Estevan has been impacted by impaired driving, and it has caused her to think she could do more. “Starting a MADD Canada community leader group is an opportunity to engage the public to keep our roads safe, with the support of a national organization leading the charge in this area,” she said. Hagel hopes everyone in attendance will be supportive of the venture. As the person in charge of Estevan’s MADD chapter, she is excited to bring national campaigns and programs to the community, including Project Red Ribbon, which is the annual holiday

campaign that MADD has had for more than 30 years. There’s also Campaign 911, a partnership with police to encourage the public to report impaired drivers, and the school assembly program that reaches out to youths in Grades 7 to 12. Her goal is to create awareness that there is a MADD chapter in Estevan, and she wants people to think before they get behind the wheel impaired. Eventually she wants a board of directors with at least five people, and volunteers who work to make the community safer. A board would help keep her on task and assist with fundraising. “They’re just hand in hand with helping us out

that way. It’s not a lot of time commitment, maybe just once a month, to help what’s coming in and what’s going out,” said Hagel.

In the meantime, there is a lot that Hagel can do by being at events ranging from police check stops to Power Dodge Estevan Bru-

ins games, and by reminding people that there are other ways to get home than drinking and driving. A2 » MADD

Finding a permanent home

Estevan’s oldest fire truck, a 1928 American Lafrance unit, was moved into its new permanent home on Tuesday evening. Several members of the Estevan Fire Rescue Service moved the truck into the front display area of the fire hall. Next week’s edition of the Mercury will have more on this story.

MADD chapter is among the ideas to curb impaired driving in the community

« A1 Michelle Okere, the regional manager for Saskatchewan with MADD Canada, said volunteers are the “heart and soul” of MADD Canada, and they carry out the programs. “I can’t be everywhere, and so it’s really great to see us expand throughout the province,” said Okere. Other chapters are in Regina, Prince Albert and Meadow Lake, and a community leader group exists in Saskatoon. “Our volunteers contribute their time and skills to help us achieve our mission,” said Okere. “They reach out to local communities, they form local partnerships, they deliver our programs and they do create that supportive network for victims and survivors of impaired driving.” MADD wants to have representation throughout the province, and there was a need in the southeast corner. Estevan is also poised for change and wanted

MADD here. “You had a community that was willing to come together and make some real substantial changes here,” said Okere. “We saw it as an opportunity to expand and provide that support to a community that needs it and also has that support around.” MADD has been working with Mayor Roy Ludwig and Police Chief Paul Ladouceur to make sure the right person is in place. She believes Hagel is that person. Now MADD will provide supports, and give access to national programs and services. Impaired driving has a devastating impact, Okere said, not only on the families of the victims, but on first responders and others. The establishment of a MADD chapter in Estevan was among the recommendations to come out of a community consultation session that the Estevan Police Service hosted in February.

Ladouceur said most of the ideas to come out of that meeting have been implemented. He expects the local chapter will be a success. Ladouceur noted Ludwig has been a tremendous supporter of the MADD program, and has been calling the police chief ’s office regularly to get updates on the MADD program. Sgt. Jeff Clarke with the Estevan RCMP said he likes to imagine a society where people can drive down the road, and not have to worry about the other drivers on the road being impaired. “I think that’s taking a big step with the MADD chapter here for the Estevan area,” said Clarke. Anyone who is interested in volunteering with the local MADD chapter can reach Hagel by emailing her at maddestevan@, or by calling her at 306-421-2525.

Connie Hagel explained why she decided to take the lead for the new Mothers Against Drunk Driving chapter in Estevan.

Clerkship at St. Joseph’s Hospital has been an enjoyable experience for aspiring physician By David Willberg

Lindsay Richels is looking forward to when she will graduate from the College of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan, and begin her career as a physician. But first she will spend time in Estevan through the longitudinal integrated clerkship (LIC), which will give her the opportunity to spend 42 weeks at St. Joseph’s Hospital while furthering her skills. A reception to welcome her to the hospital was held Tuesday, with representatives from the hospital, the College of Medicine, SaskDocs and the Saskatchewan Medical Association among those in attendance. “I just checked in with Lindsay this morning, and she’s done a lot more than a lot of other medical students would do,” said Dr. Kent Stobart, the vice-dean of education and professor of pediatrics at the College of Medicine. She has already dabbled in maternity, obstetrics, general surgery, family practice, emergency shifts and psychiatry, and has even spent time with the orthopedic surgeon. The LIC differs from a traditional, rotation-based clerkship. In the rotationbased clerkship, physicians rotate through six weeks for each of surgery, medicine, family medicine and psychiatry. But with the program in Estevan, it’s integrated, so she will see all sorts of patients. “You can see a patient who has a mental health issue in the morning, a child health (patient) in the afternoon, somebody who is having a heart attack in the

evening, and you have to integrate them all together to provide the best learning opportunity,” said Stobart. It has been shown elsewhere to increase the learning of the physicians, and it has also helped bring physicians to rural communities. Richels raved about her experience in the community. The training opportunities have been wonderful, and have surpassed her expectations. “I will definitely get a good spread of all the things, so I’ll get to see all different disciplines and hopefully become proficient in some of them, not just be there to observe, but be there to work and to learn and to help out as well,” said Richels. The LIC appeals to her because it gives her the opportunity to see all sorts of practices and learn on the job. A native of Churchbridge, Richels is also pleased to be learning in a smaller centre. “I love it here. I can’t say enough about how good the people are, the culture here,” she said. “Being here is truly an honour.” She was also able to promote the LIC to aspiring physicians who were in Estevan last month through the Saskatchewan Medical Association’s Road Map Tour. “There is lots of interest already, and lots of interest in the city of Estevan, so that’s good for just starting out,” she said. “I’ve had a lot of good feedback already, and a lot of really impressed and curious medical students wanting to come here and do their training.” Richels recognizes a lot of work and effort has gone into getting the program

into Estevan, and she is pleased to learn here. “In the next few years, I know this program is going to become super competitive, just with the opportunities that I have been given already, I know other students are going to want the same opportunities.” She also displayed a sense of humour in her speech during the reception. She reminded the audience that a year is a long time to be learning in a community. It could be a really good experience, or it can be frustrating. Her statement drew a lot of laughter. “That takes a lot. You don’t just get rid of me in six weeks. You have to have me for a year. And thanks to all of the other physicians as well for giving me the opportunities to learn.” She also pointed out that she had been to St. Joseph’s once before, back when she was a pharmacy student. Estevan was selected for the clerkship after the College of Medicine was approached by St. Joseph’s Hospital executive director Greg Hoffort and local physician Dr. Edward Tsoi. Another local physician, Dr. Edward Kricken, has also taken a lead, while hospital employee Kristin Dupuis has played a key role in the program. Hoffort predicted this year will go a long ways to making the program in Estevan a success, and the local physicians are already raving about Richels’ work. Stobart believes communities like Estevan and Meadow Lake, which also has an LIC, need this program, just like Saskatoon and Regina. He said this is about engaging with Estevan, which he admits the college has

not done well in the past, and creating opportunities, not just for the College of Medicine, but also nursing, dentistry and other departments. “Our real goal is that the people from here will see

this as a career opportunity,” said Stobart. As for the post-graduate residency program offered through the College of Physicians, which St. Joseph’s has been pursuing for some time, Stobart is aware that is a goal

the community would like to move on, and the college would be more than willing to help. “I’m always willing to work with a community to build the links and increase the educational opportunities,” he said.

We’re thankful… for all of you

There are a couple of important events in our office this week. The first is National Newspapers Week from Oct. 1-7. We’ve written about it before, but now you’ll have to wait until next year before we write about it again. The Thanksgiving long weekend is coming up. It’s a chance for us to reflect on the many reasons we’re thankful. So perhaps this is a different spin on National Newspaper Week opinion piece, or a Thanksgiving editorial. But we’re thankful for all of you. Successful newspapers have several common denominators: reporters capable of writing good stories and taking eye-catching photographs, sales representatives capable of selling advertisements, graphic designers who create an appealing look for the pages, and leaders who make sure people are doing their jobs. But without the readers, newspapers don’t exist. It’s like any other business. Take away the customers or the clients, and that business fades away into obscurity. Businesses often fail because they don’t deliver a quality product their readers enjoy, they take their customers for granted, or they don’t evolve to meet the needs of their customers. We know people are busy. If newspapers don’t deliver a quality product to their readers on a daily or weekly basis, then they won’t read the paper, regardless of whether it’s free or a subscription. You’ll find something better to do. So it’s imperative to strive for excellence, and to engage you as much as possible. We like it when you stop us on the street to talk to us about a story that appeared in the paper. We like it when you offer your feedback. Of course, we want to hear that you liked a story, but we’ll also pay attention if you tell us you didn’t like it. (Note: just because you disagree with it doesn’t mean that it was bad. It’s bad if it’s contradictory or inaccurate). And we like it when you come to us with story ideas. To us, it shows trust in our ability to get your story right, or the story of a friend right. Perhaps you’re a senior citizen who has been reading newspapers for your entire life. Thank you. Perhaps you’re middle aged or a millennial who enjoys reading our products each week. We thank you too. Or perhaps you’re a young person who is finding an appreciation for the printed word and story-telling through our papers. We thank you, too. We always enjoy seeing the thrill in a young person’s eyes when they find out they will be in the paper. In many cases, it’s the first time they’ve been in the paper. And we know parents, siblings, grandparents, uncles, aunts and friends love seeing their kids in the paper. Yes, there are times when people’s names appear in a paper when they don’t want it there, but most times when someone has their name or face printed, it’s for the right reasons. The times are changing for newspapers. There are people whose consumption of newspaper content comes through the online realm, checking websites to see if anything has been updated. It’s important to newspapers to remember the online component of their operations. But there are still so many people who like to hold the product in their hand each day or each week as they flip through the pages and look for information on what’s happening in the community. Regardless of how or when you read our content, we’re thankful for the support. And we look forward to continue bringing the information to you each week.

It’s the most terrible time of the year I woke up this week to find that Christmas had come. Well, at least the snow that usually signifies Christmas, but it’s only October, so what the heck Mother Nature. I’m not sure there is ever weather I truly like in Canada. I spend the majority of the summer months complaining about the heat, how it’s too hot to go out and enjoy anything, and how I can’t wait for the weather to cool down so that I can enjoy nature again. Then inevitably fall comes around. Or at least the Canadian version of fall, the version that only lasts roughly a week before winter is breathing down all of our necks. Then we get the pleasure of spending eight months in a frozen wasteland, all half frozen, being relentlessly pounded by snowfall day after day. We get a brief ray of hope during spring, when the temperature is actually mild enough to enjoy time outside without the feeling of melting. But that, too, dissipates quickly and before you know it the temperature is back in the high 20s and I’m once again a sweaty, angry mess. Don’t get me wrong … there are things I enjoy about the various seasons throughout the year. When I was younger, and had suffered a lot less injuries, I used to love snowboarding as much as possible. I still love it to this day, but it’s difficult to justify spending $80 on a lift ticket, plus the extra money on gas to and from the ski hill, plus food and other amenities, so it’s been a few years since I’ve hit the slopes. It seems as if when you’re younger, the snow is this fantastic opportunity to be outside and play. But now, all I can think about is how darn cold it is, and how much I don’t want to be that darn cold. I also don’t completely resent our summers. Sure, for the most part it’s just three months of me complaining that it’s too hot to do anything and that I feel like I may sweat to death, but there are days that I enjoy.

Brady Bateman None but a Blockhead

Anything above 25 C is just a write off of a day. I am a very pale, Irish-blooded individual, and weather like that makes me feel as if I’m going to melt. But days during the summer that hover from the high teens, to the low 20s … those are glorious. When I lived in Calgary days like those were always spent outdoors. The city was fantastic for always having something going on, or somewhere nice to spend the day. Grace and I would often leave the house early in the mornings and make a daytrip to the mountains, and those were always the days I preferred the most. We often liked to return to Johnston Canyon, the place where we originally met a little over three years ago. During the summer the canyon is beautiful. The hiking paths are well cared for, and the views are fantastic, featuring several waterfalls to enjoy. During the winter however, the path is not quite as fun. It was the middle of winter, and as I said prior, I’m not the biggest fan of going out and doing things while it’s freezing cold. I woke up on my day off to a phone call from a friend of mine. Himself, his girlfriend, his girlfriend’s best friend, and her younger sister (I know it sounds like an episode of 90210) were all going out on a hike, and were wondering if I wanted to come along. They told me that there were

no empty seats in the car they were taking, so if I wanted to tag along I would have to drive alone. I, of course, did not want to do that, so I called a friend of mine to see if he would be willing to drive out with me; he just happened to say yes, so we made the trip out to Johnston Canyon. Now, where this story loops back in to why Canadian winters are no fun, is when Grace started trying to make it up the hiking trail. The temperatures had been going from above to below freezing several times a day for the days prior, which had resulted in a fair share of ice build-up on the already steep trail. Grace, being the mountaineer that she is, had decided to wear her flat Vans skate shoes, and proceeded to fall on the ice what seemed to be once every five minutes. I was her so-called knight in shining armour, and picked her up when she fell, and continued to hold her arm as we walked. I think that is my favourite memory of winter. It’s not just Canada’s weather I don’t approve of however, the winters suck, and fall and spring are almost non-existent, but at least we get decent summers. When I lived in Texas, that story was completely different. There’s nothing worse than going from a country with eight months of winter, to a state that has nine months of summer. I spent my first few months in Texas working in construction, outdoors, in the middle of summer. Boy, oh boy, was that a mistake. I went from pale white, to cherry tomato red in the span of one day, and then stayed that way for eight months … not a fan. I guess the point I’m making is I hate all weather. Too hot, too cold, too windy, too dry and too humid. But looking back some of my best memories have been made on the days when the weather makes you want to find someone you love and spend the day next to them.

Honour Wall in Royal Heights Veteran’s Memorial Park is now complete

Cheers Cheers to all of the newspaper carriers who get the papers to the readers on a weekly basis. Cheers to the organizers of the Collage Cultural Festival for bringing all of the great entertainment, food and vendors together under one roof. Cheers to the plan to bring back the Rafferty Rumble to Estevan. It was great before and it will be great again. Cheers to local band Hook and Nail for the great performance last week. They sounded great and they played a lot of fun music. Cheers to the Estevan area schools that marked Orange Shirt Day last week. It’s important for our school students to learn our history, even when it’s not so good.

Jeers Jeers to paper straws. Who thought of these things? They’re a pain when trying to drink anything. Jeers to the way in which some people insist on driving down back alleys. They aren’t designed for motorists to go 50 or 60 kilometres per hour. Jeers to the shape of the sidewalks on the 500-block of Fourth Street. There are a couple of areas that are definite trip hazards. Jeers to those who drove too aggressively on Wednesday after the snow. It made a treacherous driving situation even worse.

Lyle Dukart has been working on the Honour Wall in the Royal Heights Veterans’ Memorial Park for about a decade, trying to find as many names as possible of people from Estevan who served Canada in combat and peacekeeping missions. He’s “tickled pink” that his work is now virtually complete. “It’s just a fantastic feeling after 10 years of working on it,” said Dukart, who is the president of the Royal Canadian Legion’s Estevan branch. “I know there are going to be errors, and people in the wrong war and that, but I did my diligence to try to correct everything before it went public.” The last of the plaques that adorn the Honour Wall was mounted last month. Dukart believes there are about 1,300 names engraved on the Honour Wall, although he admits he lost count. There is also room for additional names to be added as well. The plaques on the wall are for the First World War, the Second World War and the Korean War. They include both those who died during the conflicts, and those who returned home after the wars. “There were a lot of them who came from Estevan, and then moved on to Roche Percee or Bienfait, and as time went on, they made those communities their home,” said Dukart. But it was a difficult process at times. The records weren’t very clear during those times, making it difficult to track down all of the names. Dukart pointed out that many of the soldiers who fought in the two world wars and in Korea went on to build Estevan as a community. Some became mayor or chiefs of police in Estevan, while others became

businessmen. “I was trying to recognize those people who helped build the city the way it is,” said Dukart. He estimates about three-quarters of the wall is still available to add plaques. “I’m hoping someone else picks up the torch and carries on with it,” said Dukart. “We have the Afghanistan conflict, and other wars that Canadian Forces were in during peace time. And we have a tremendous amount of reservists here

in Estevan who need to be recognized, and the RCMP.” If there is a name that has been missed from one of the world wars or the Korean War, then Dukart said they can create another plaque to correct the omission. “All of the names are engraved in steel.” Dukart said he had a lot of help to complete the project. He ran the names of all the veterans he had in Estevan Mercury Publications, in an effort to see if

there were names he missed. The Estevan Comprehensive School designed the wall. Dynamic Signs was with him for 10 years and reprinted the plaques until they were right. Linda Betnar was also be a big help. He would like to see a dedication ceremony take place in the spring, during Veterans’ Week. He had hoped to have one this year, but the weather has made it difficult, and some people are still tied up with harvest.

Lampman pool will benefit from fundraiser The Lampman Swimming Pool is going to receive a boost for next year. Brittany Fox, the town’s recreation director, said the pool is going to have a new liner for next year. The current pool liner has outlived its shelf life by about six years. Fortunately, the town hasn’t encountered any issues from the age of the liner. “We opened normally for the season (this year),” she said. “We had to close early for the pool renovations. We closed in the middle of August. And then we will reopen our season in June (next year).” There are still some finishing touches that need to be applied so the pool can be ready for next spring. The community has been fundraising for about a year, and it has reached the goal of $160,000 for the liner. The focus of the fundraising was on the pool liner, but they would also like to eventually update the diving board and add a slide. Upgrades are also eventually going to be needed for the change rooms and the pool house. The most recent fundraiser was held on Saturday night at the Lampman Curling Rink. Approximately 200 tickets were sold, and people were keen to support the event. While they could have accommodated more people, it was still a great crowd for the evening. A roast beef supper was served, and comedian Jody Peters entertained the audience. A live auction and a silent auction were also part of the event. “We had many, many businesses and community members donate to the live and silent auctions, and we had a great turnout. We were very happy with the evening.” The final tally for the amount of money raised hasn’t been determined yet, but Fox said it was definitely a successful night.

The Lampman Swimming Pool will have a new liner next year, thanks to support for fundraising efforts. Photo submitted

Humane society announces details for second annual gala The Estevan Humane Society has announced the details for its second annual Whiskers and Wine Gala. The benefit will be held at the Estevan Comprehensive School (ECS) cafetorium. Cocktails will be served at 6 p.m. and supper is at 6:30 p.m. Entertainment will begin at 8 p.m. and a live art auction is slated to begin at 10 p.m. Members of the ECS cheer team will help with serving a half chicken dinner to those in attendance. Wooltree Grove and JJ Voss have been booked as the entertainment for this year. “It’s really about a local evening out,” president Angela Prette said in a news release. Some may think it’s a bit early to be thinking about Christmas, but this would be the perfect Christmas staff party for businesses.” A table of eight is $550, or people can buy individual tickets for $80 as well. “Ticket sales are just starting up so I really hope we can sell out and have a great evening this year,” Prette said. This was a huge fundraiser for us last year, which is why we decided to try it again.” Prette is looking forward to the entertainment. Last year there was a magician and this year the organization is going the musical route. Wooltree Grove features Aaron and Jacquie Walbaum, a husband and wife tandem from Forget. They perform blues, folk and cover tunes. Voss is a country music singer from Regina who has played at JunoFest, the Craven Country Jamboree, Big Valley Jamboree and the Canada Summer Games, among other events. He has also played alongside Tim McGraw, George Strait, Sugarland, Toby Keith and more. Funds raised at the gala will go towards repairs at the building and the general care for the animals.

Saskatchewan players in CCS world part of documentary on the solution no one is talking about A critically important global solution that addresses climate change, energy demand and workforce/economic opportunity is the focus of CCS: Bridge to a Cleaner Energy Future, a newly released mini documentary commissioned by the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers and produced by Wide Awake Films. The video, viewable at www.CleanerFutureCCS. org, is a collaboration of 11 energy, environmental and industry experts exploring how carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies can solve the three oft-atodds issues of energy, environment and economy.

Several Saskatchewan players in the CCS world are included in the video. “CCS is the solution no one is talking about; but everyone should be talking about,” says Julio Friedmann, Columbia University senior research scholar and CEO of Carbon Wrangler. “That is the goal of this video: to make it easier to understand how CCS works and why it is the vital component to mitigating climate change and reaching the Paris climate targets. Moreover, the video explains how CCS allows reliable energy production through a realistic mix of renewables and clean fossil

fuels; and that it’s the solution that keeps the energy and industrial workforce at work and local and global economies healthy.” Friedmann is among a cadre of CCS, energy and industry thought leaders interviewed in the video. Brad Page, CEO of the Global CCS Institute, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, explains in the video why carbon capture and storage must be part of the overall climate change solution. “At the end of the day, if what you care about is our planet and our home, then really you want to embrace everything that can get this problem solved.”

Also featured in the 15-minute video (a fiveminute version is also available) are: Mike Monea, president and CEO of the International CCS Knowledge Centre; Ian MacGregor, chairman and CEO of North West Refining, Inc.; Sandra Odendahl, CEO, CMC Research Institutes; Beth Hardy, vice-president for strategy and stakeholder relations, International CCS Knowledge Centre; Tim Wiwchar, Athabasca Oil Sands

mann. “CCS is a solution and a bridge to the future of clean energy that renewable energy and conservation cannot by themselves achieve. And its development and application will fuel economic growth and create many thousands of well-paying jobs. “It’s important that more people understand CCS, spread the word that it is the right solution and implore business and government leaders globally to adopt CCS as the right way forward.”

Show you really care A friend told me of a visit to his doctor. “Doc,” he complained, “Sometimes I hurt in my knees, sometimes in my hands and…ah, I just seem to hurt somewhere all the time.” Without blinking an eye, the young but professional physician grinned then replied. “Harry, at your age if you don’t hurt, you’re dead.” If that’s the criteria I guess I’ve entered “that age” as well. Now I’ve always believed that age isn’t really counted in years or de-

for a job or far more situations than I could mention. What can I, as a Christian, do to help ease another’s pain? Instructions to the New Testament church include exhortations to remain true to Christ’s teaching and doing that includes supporting one another. “Bear one another’s burdens”, “Comfort one another” and “By love serve one another” are just some of the exhortations given us in scripture. We are to do what we can to help but with the understanding that while we may not be able to provide a tangible solution, we can pray. “Bear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2, 9).

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) has announced the schedule for flu clinics in the Estevan area this fall. The first clinic is slated for Oct. 22 at St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Auditorium No. 2, starting at 9 a.m. and continuing until 7 p.m. Another clinic will happen the following day, also at auditorium No. 2, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Then the clinics will start to rotate through different locations. There will be a clinic at the Bienfait Public Library on Oct. 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Three clinics are scheduled for Oct. 25: Inglis Court and Yardley Place from 9-10 a.m., and Sussex Arms from 10:30-11:30 a.m. The clinics will return to the hospital’s auditorium on Oct. 29 from 12-6 p.m. Four clinics are scheduled for Oct. 30, with Trinity Tower at 9-10 a.m., Valleyview Heritage and Midtown Manor from 10:30-11:30 a.m., and Creighton Lodge from 1-2:30 p.m. The last of the clinics will be at the hospital’s auditorium: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 3, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 14, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 26, and 3-6 p.m. on Dec. 11. The free vaccine is being offered through public health clinics across the province. Vaccine is also available in some physician and nurse practitioner offices and in local pharmacies. Anyone six months of age and older can receive the flu vaccine, and is encouraged to get vaccinated early in the season. The flu vaccine is a safe, effective way to help people stay healthy, prevent illness and save lives. Getting vaccinated is especially important for people at high risk of complications, such as pregnant women, young children, the elderly and persons with underlying health conditions, and their caregivers. According to the SHA, hand hygiene is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of germs. People are asked to wash their hands regularly and properly to minimize the risk to themselves and those around them. When attending a clinic, people are asked to bring their Saskatchewan health card with them to receive their immunization, and to be prepared to wait an additional 15 minutes after receiving their immunization.

Campaign launched for Estevan infant A GoFundMe campaign has been launched for Weston Earle, the son of Dan Earle and Tanisha Lukye of Estevan. As of Wednesday afternoon, the campaign had raised $7,310 of its $10,000 goal in just five days. According to the campaign, launched by Lynaia Lukye of Estevan, Weston, who was born on Sept. 22, has been flown to the University of Alberta neonatal

intensive care unit. “They have all made it safe and do not know how long their journey will be in Edmonton,” Lynaia Lukye wrote in the campaign. Weston is having heart complications and the health care team is doing everything it can for him, she said. The nurses are saying Weston is fighting hard and mom and the boys’ parents thank everyone for their prayers.

“Our goal is to help Tanisha and Dan to focus on staying strong and positive for their son,” Lynaia wrote. “Please consider donating to help cover medical costs, STARS Ambulance costs, and accommodations while they are residing in Edmonton.” If for any reason people cannot help with a donation, Lynaia says prayers and good thoughts are very much appreciated.

SGI issues winter driving tips Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is providing winter driving tips to the public now that much of the province has received an early blast of winter. The Estevan area received several centimetres of snow on Oct. 3, and other parts of the province have received significant snowfall as well. SGI’s tips include: • Clear snow from vehicles and be sure windows are completely defrosted before driving. • Slow down. Posted speed limits are for ideal driving conditions. Adjust speed accordingly when conditions are less than favourable, like when roads are icy or there is low visibility. • Invest in a set of winter tires, which provide improved traction on winter road surfaces. • Leave more distance between vehicles, so that people have more time to stop. SGI recommends at least a four-second following distance. • Give extra time to get to a destination so they’re not tempted to drive too fast for road conditions.

Finding bargains Brent Blackburn, left, and Sandra Dutton were among the shoppers at the Estevan Antique Auto Club’s flea market and swap meet on Saturday morning. The market offered plenty of deals, which helped attract hundreds of people.

• Turn on headlights at night and any time visibility is poor, since some vehicles do not have taillights on when daytime running lights are being used. • Don’t use cruise control in slippery conditions.

Remembering Canada’s history at Hillcrest By Brady Bateman

Hillcrest School participated in the national Orange Shirt Day on Sept. 28. The nationwide event was developed as a way to bring awareness to the history of residential schools in Canada, and the school had decided to promote a message of no child being left behind or forgotten. Residential schools were government-sponsored religious schools, which were established to assimilate Indigenous children into Euro-Canadian culture. Originally conceived by Christian churches and the Canadian government as an attempt to

both educate and convert Indigenous youths, and to integrate them into Canadian society, the schools served only to disrupt lives and communities, and cause long-term problems among Indigenous people. The last residential schools in Canada closed in 1996, and since that time former students have pressed for recognition and restitution, which resulted in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement in 2007, and a formal public apology by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2008. In total, an estimated 150,000 First Nation, Inuit, and Métis children attended residential schools.

Grade 7 and Grade 8 homeroom teacher at Hillcrest, Kristy Johnson said that the importance of the event was to raise awareness and education of Canada’s history, as well as treaty education. “We started with education in our own classrooms about treaties in Canada’s history, and about the residential school experiences in particular,” said Johnson. “We then had our students going to different classrooms throughout the school to do activities with other, younger students. We watched some videos, and today we are gathering as a whole school to do an assembly and then split-

ting into groups to trace our hands on orange construction paper, with the message of how can we make people feel like they matter.” The students gathered for an assembly in the school’s gymnasium, where the message of the day was reiterated, before separating into groups. The groups each traced the outlines of their hands on orange construction paper. The students then regathered for a group photo behind the school, showing their orange shirts proudly. “Orange Shirt Day began

in 2013 and grew from Phyllis Webstad’s story of her residential school experience,” said Johnson. “In 1967 Webstad was sent to a residential school in B.C. Her grandmother had given her a new, bright orange shirt, which was stripped from her, and she never saw the shirt again. So the Orange Shirt Day’s purpose is really for awareness of the history of residential schools in this country and treaty education.” Johnson said that the education has been ongoing

for several weeks at Hillcrest, with the students learning about the causes, and effects of residential schools in the country. Students were encouraged to share the history with other students throughout the school and continue educating others they meet on the subject. The event will continue in the future as a way of reminding people in Canada of the impact residential schools had on Indigenous peoples, and as a way to ensure that no child is ever forgotten or left behind.

Kristy Johnson, Grade 7 and 8-homeroom teacher at Hillcrest Elementary School, stands with Jasmin and Skylar, Grade 8 students who drew the pictured design for Orange Shirt Day.

Provincial and federal governments reach new $900 million infrastructure pact The Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are working together to make long-term infrastructure investments that will create jobs, boost the economy and enhance people’s quality of life. Minister of Infrastructure and Communities FrançoisPhilippe Champagne and Minister Responsible for SaskBuilds Gordon Wyant were joined on Wednesday by Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, and Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding, to announce the signing of a bilateral agreement that will provide more than $896 million in federal funding through the Investing in Canada plan over the next decade for infrastructure projects. These projects will be cost-shared with the Saskatchewan government, municipalities and other partners.

This new funding will see the federal and provincial governments make unprecedented investments in public transit, green infrastructure, recreational, cultural, and community infrastructure, as well as rural and northern communities. These investments will bring many benefits to people across Saskatchewan, including: Faster commutes and travel times and easier movement of goods for businesses; Cleaner air and water; Reduced greenhouse gas emissions; Smarter and more efficient cities; Sustainable water management; Enhanced public parks, recreational facilities and other spaces that make communities great places to live; and Better transportation and digital infrastructure for people living in remote

communities. More than $33 billion in federal funding is being invested across Canada through these bilateral agreements. Provinces and territories are asked to develop three-year plans on how they will implement their infrastructure projects. “Long-term investments in infrastructure connect people, create good middleclass jobs and support our economy,” said Champagne. “This new agreement with Saskatchewan will provide long-term predictable funding to meet the needs of all residents, from those living in busy city centres to remote rural towns. “I am very pleased that this also marks the successful conclusion of our negotiations with all the provinces and territories on these agreements. Together with our partners, we are making strategic investments in infrastructure across Sas-

katchewan and the country to build prosperous, resilient communities where everyone has opportunities to succeed.” “Infrastructure is the backbone of our communities and our economy,” Wyant said. “Today’s announcement represents a decade-long commitment to investing in priority projects that address Saskatchewan’s unique infrastructure needs, protect and improve communities’ health and safety, support Saskatchewan’s competitiveness and create significant employment and business opportunities for Saskatchewan’s construction sector and workers. “Today’s agreement also supports Saskatchewan’s ability to ensure funding is directed where it is most needed, through the ability to pursue future flexibility within and between funding streams.” Quick facts: • Under the Investing in

Canada plan, the Government of Canada is investing more than $180 billion over 12 years in public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes, and Canada’s rural and northern communities.

• $9.2 billion for green infrastructure;

• Under the first phase of the plan, Infrastructure Canada has approved more than 3,500 projects across Canada worth a combined investment of more than $9.9 billion, including more than 120 projects worth more than $234 million in Saskatchewan.

The federal cost-share under the rural and northern infrastructure stream was increased from 50 per cent to 60 per cent on Feb. 16. With this increase, provincial communities with fewer than 5,000 residents will be eligible to receive a higher proportion of federal funding to address their unique infrastructure needs. Indigenous communities in the provinces will be eligible for a federal cost share of up to 75 per cent. This marks the 13th and final new long-term infrastructure agreement the Government of Canada has signed with provincial and territorial partners.

• As part of the plan, Infrastructure Canada will deliver $33 billion over the next decade through new bilateral agreements with provinces and territories under four funding streams: • $20.1 billion for public transit;

• $1.3 billion for community, cultural and recreational infrastructure; and • $2 billion for wide-ranging infrastructure needs in rural and northern communities.

Tips for feeding the CHUBBY DOG • WATCH THE TREATS! The most common mistakes is giving too many calories in treats. • Learn how many calories are recommended for your dog, using online calculators or call and speak with a tech. • Prevention of obesity and excess weight will improve your pet's longevity and quality of life. Excess weight can lead to diabetes, arthritis and cardiac disease.

ECS Elecs receiver Shanelle Rioux shakes hands with members of the Swift Current Colts after a recent game.

1 (306) 636-2639 #1-461 King St, • Estevan, SK, S4A 1K6

Shanelle Rioux, second from right, enjoyed her recent experience at the Regina Riot football team’s camp.

Rioux enjoys experience at Riot camp By Corey Atkinson

Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs receiver Shanelle Rioux is an absolute Riot. Or, at least, she hopes to soon be. Rioux went to a camp with the Regina Riot of the Western Women’s Canadian Football League a couple of weeks ago. The Riot have won three of the last four league championships but are always on the hunt for new blood. “It was super good and

the coaches are amazing,” Rioux said of her camp experience. “I had a good time and I learned a lot. The team was fun.” Rioux would love to be a quarterback at some point, and took a few snaps late in a game last week against Swift Current. Her experience on offence has primarily been as a receiver but she has carried the ball a few times and has played on special teams as a punt returner. “I’m hopefully trying to get into running back and maybe a few plays at wide

receiver,” said Rioux, who has lined up as both with the Elecs over the past couple of years. Through the first four games, she’s carried the ball three times for three yards and caught two passes for 24 yards. Her experience this year in those positions will help but also her occasional stints under centre at quarterback are invaluable. “I was a quarterback before I was a receiver so it just took a couple of seconds to get back in,” said Rioux. “I like quarterback because it

gives a lot more of a view of all the positions and a lot more IQ for football, which is really beneficial when you do get moved to all the positions, especially on defence and being able to read different types of defences.” She may be able to play on the Riot next season in the spring. “Maybe if I get a chance to play for the Riot, hopefully I’d be excelling there and maybe pick up another team after I’m finished with high school, and going to a higher team like that,” she said.

The Riot’s season goes from May to June and doesn’t conflict at all with most high school football activities – with the exception of the provincial Senior Bowl – so Rioux would be able to play as soon as this spring if she makes the cut. There is a bit of a southeast flavour on the team as this year, the Riot had players like Amery Deren from Lampman and Baillie Jo Koszman from Weyburn. “I played against a girl when I was younger and she played on the team in her Grade 11 year,” she said.

The offseason after high school football won’t be very long for Rioux but in the meantime she could acquit herself well by following the training. “There’s a lot of indoor practices (in the offseason), classtime and learning plays,” Rioux said. “There’s a free a gym membership for a gym in Regina and there’s a lot of working out in the offtime.” Although the Riot have had her in a camp, her postsecondary schooling and football options may include Calgary as well.

Last minute goal sinks SE Goldwings

By Corey Atkinson

After working hard to ensure a tie with the Parkland Fire last Sunday, a goal in the last 10 seconds was a really deflating moment for the midget AA South East Goldwings. The Fire scored the game-winning goal with nine seconds on the clock against the Southeast. The Goldwings will be hitting the ice for the regular season next week in the Saskatchewan Female Midget AA Hockey League but played their last pre-season game at Affinity Place Sunday. They’ll play their regular season games in Midale once the ice goes in to that rink. “This is our fifth game but we haven’t had enough practices,” said Goldwings coach Allan Ohrt, “We’ve only had three practices and five games and that’s not the ideal thing. But we’ll be ready next time.” One of the key players offensively for last season’s Estevan

Power Tech BearCats was Marci LeBlanc and she displayed some of the breakaway speed and determination Sunday, but she couldn’t stuff the puck in far side after her breakaway in the third. Kendra Kotalyk scored the only goal of the game for the Goldwings with an assist from Kaycee Mullinger at 7:11 of the third period. Earlier in the second period, the Goldwings weren’t able to convert on a lengthy two-person power play advantage, which is the kind of thing that hopefully won’t be a problem once the players on the ice get used to each other and understand the systems better. “We’ve worked on the power play once so far and it’s early,” Ohrt said. “We’ve got about two more weeks here without any games. We’ll be fine.” The players still do get along despite being a mashup of different areas in the southeast. “The girls are awesome together,” said Ohrt. “I’ve talked to a couple of people and it’s the same


question they always ask. We’ll be fine. It’s the best room I’ve seen together.” The Goldwings start their season with a pair of games Oct. 1314 in Swift Current and then their home opener is Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. at Midale against Parkland. In other female hockey news for the area, the Midget A South East Goldwings will be home to the Prairie Storm Thunder Oct. 13 at 3:30 p.m. The Carlyle Wildcats begin their campaign Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. against the Regina Renegades Also, the Estevan bantam Bearcats are opening their season Oct. 13 against the Regina Renegades at the Power Dodge Ice Centre. The peewee Bearcats start Oct. 13 against Parkland at Melville. There are two atom Bearcats teams with one beginning their regular season at 4 p.m. Saturday against Weyburn DQ Blizzards and another going Oct. 13 against Weyburn AtomC Red.

Bruins deal Meger to Lloydminster The Power Dodge Estevan Bruins have dealt the rights of goaltender Curtis Meger to the Lloydminster Bobcats of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. The Bruins announced the trade via Twitter on Tuesday night. Meger, 20, has been in the Bruins organization for several years, first as a prospect and then as a roster player. He played one game with the club as a midget call-up in 2014-15, and played 22 regular season games and three playoff games with the Bruins in 2016-17. He spent last season with the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League. The Raiders announced last week they had released Meger. In return, the Bruins received 1998-born goaltender Nick Sanders and future considerations. According to the Bruins, Sanders is not expected to suit up for Estevan, and will remain in Alberta to await a trade to another team. Ironically, Sanders and Meger were teammates early last season with Prince Albert. He spent two full seasons in the Western Hockey League before joining Lloydminster last season.
