Lineup announced for Bow Valley Jamboree By David Willberg

Music lovers can once again look forward to hearing a diverse selection of musicians during the 2019 edition of the Bow Valley Jamboree. The annual celebration of Saskatchewan music will take place Aug. 10 at the Bow Valley Park south of Oxbow. Gates for the festival open at 1 p.m., and the first act, Opening act Downwind will take to the stage at 2 p.m.

“Downwind is a group that has been around in the southeast for about 40 years, and they’re once again helping us out by starting off the festival,” said Lori Moncrief from the Oxbow Arts and Cultural Committee, which puts on the festival. She noted that Downwind has said this will be their last appearance at the jamboree, but the committee hopes the group will continue to appear at Bow Valley. Winsome Kind will per-

form at 3 p.m., followed by Nae Plans at 4:05 p.m., Hook & Nail at 5:15 p.m., Ginelle James at 6:30 p.m. and the Snake Oil Salesmen at 7:45 p.m. Hook & Nail is a band from southeast Saskatchewan that came to an open mic session hosted by the committee in Oxbow. A crowd from Estevan came to hear the trio perform. “We’re hoping for an Estevan gang to come our way, and Hook & Nail thrilled

our audience at open mic,” said Moncrief. “We think the Bow Valley stage will be an even better venue for their talent.” The Tilted Kits will perform a set at 9:15 p.m., and Sourjack at 10:30 p.m. will wrap up the festival. Moncrief praised Christy Hook and Carol Stewart for working hard on the lineup. Their efforts started before Christmas. “They do a lot of searching, and come up with a great

group of people to entertain us,” said Moncrief. The Tilted Kilts and Nae Plan have a lot of energy and a Celtic feel to their music. “We know from open mic nights that people around here really enjoy fiddle music, and good energy, so we’re particularly excited about those two groups,” said Moncrief. James is a country artist who is receiving a lot of support, and the festival organizers hope she will appeal to

those who enjoy that musical genre. Winsome Kind is a folkpop duo that has performed across the country, The Snake Oil Salesmen is a group from southern Saskatchewan that performs rock music, and Sourjack is a rock group ideal for the late night music. Also back for this year’s festival will be Bow Valley’s tweener performers – young up and coming musicians who take to the stage in A2 » JAMBOREE

Zajac to represent new party in federal election The People’s Party of Canada (PPC) has announced that Estevan’s Phillip Zajac has been nominated as their candidate in the upcoming federal election. Zajac has been a member of the community for 10 years and is proud to call Estevan home. During his time in Estevan, he has been involved in the community as a coach and volunteer. Currently he is coaching the Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs football team and has volunteered his time coaching girls’ softball for

the past seven years. He is an active member of the Estevan Kinsmen Club and volunteers his time with many events that benefit the local community. Realizing how important services such libraries are for Saskatchewan communities, he decided to become the chairman for the Estevan Public Library board, a position he has held for the past four years. Zajac said he is excited about the platform for the fledgling party, which will be fielding candidates in an

election for the first time. “He is sure that once the public learns about the future under a PPC government, there is no way that they shouldn’t win by a landslide,” stated a news release for the nomination. Former Conservative Party leadership candidate Maxime Bernier founded the CPC in the fall of 2018 and they have set up constituency associations in federal ridings. They expect to have a candidate in each electoral district in the Oct. 21 federal election.

Notable policy points for the party are: scrap the current gun regulations and policy, pull Canada out of the United Nations Migration Compact, reduce personal income tax to 15 per cent across the board on the first $100,000 earned, decrease corporate tax by five per cent, eliminate foreign wasteful spending, pledge to take care of veterans and seniors in a show of thanks for the freedoms they won, and send aid to countries when they are struck by catastrophes. “The People’s Party of

Canada is proud to make this announcement and endorses common sense governance with Mr. Zajac representing your values in Ottawa,” the news release said. Zajac ran for the Conservative Party’s nomination for the 2015 federal election in what was a six-candidate race. Robert Kitchen went on to win the race, and was elected as the Souris-Moose Mountain MP in October 2015. Kitchen is the only other declared candidate for the upcoming federal election.

Jamboree proceeds support the arts « A1 between the featured acts and play a few songs. “There’s a lot of excitement for them and for us when they take the stage at the jamboree,” said Moncrief. The committee takes a look at last year’s event when planning for the current year’s festival. The things that went well will be retained, and things that weren’t as well received will be put on the back-burner. “We’re really proud to say that we support local,” said Moncrief. Supporting local means showing their support for the featured acts and the tweeners while backing local businesses. They use local people for their website, their photography, their publicity and other efforts. The jamboree has also created a new working relationship with the Happy

Nun Café in Forget. The café will do a ticket draw for the festival in June and July,

and the jamboree will have a draw for a gift certificate at the café during the event.

There will also be signage in the Bow Valley Park promoting the event, and they

Proceeds from the jamboree will be used to support local events and artists in the Oxbow area. They host drama, visual arts and musical workshops that are brought into the schools, they host workshops for people of all ages. This year they had a group from the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon, and

the Globe Theatre in Regina came in to host an event for youths. They also contributed to a performance in Oxbow by the Missoula Children’s Theatre last month. Much of the cast for the theatre’s presentation of Peter and Wendy came from the school.

Torquay Block Party Quilt Show attracted lots of people By Ana Bykhovskaia

The Torquay Block Party Quilt Show that took place at Sacred Heart Catholic Church last Sunday was a big success. Colleen Marcotte, who is a part of the Torquay Block Party Quilt Guild and was also exhibiting her art pieces at the show, said that they were very pleased with the turnout. Altogether there were between 185 and 200 people coming in for the show as opposed to about 160 guests the

year earlier. The quilts presented at the show were created by 13 artists, who have been working on them over the winter during biweekly meetings at the church. Most of them are coming from Torquay with one joining the group from Midale and another one driving from Beaubier. They opened the doors at 1 p.m. and the program started at 1:30. “In the program, we showcased some other Torquay talents,” said Marcotte. Torquay pastry artist Fa-

diah of Something Sweet by Fadiah joined the show with her wedding cakes and cookies. Lauren Daae with Little Doe Designs, who uses paint along with coffee for artwork, brought over some of her pictures and prints. “And then Colette Shauf from Stoughton came and talked about a group of women … that make, I think they are called Little Dresses for Africa. So she gave a talk on them and showed some of the dresses they made,” said Marcotte. And finally, the quilt guild did a show. Their theme this time was Lifetime of Quilts. “We did a show of quilts that we have made for celebrations of our lives like weddings, anniversaries, births and things like that,” said Marcotte. Some pieces presented at the show were available for sale, but mostly it was for demonstration. There were two vendors, Gypsy Soul Fabrics from Estevan and Second Story Quilting of Torquay, present at the show as well. And the day came to an end with tea and snacks. The feedback was very good. “We’ve heard just rave reviews,” said Marcotte.

The show has been going on for a while. Originally, it was set up to happen every three years, then biannually, and starting last year ladies from the Torquay Block Party Quilt Guild started organizing it annually. From time to time the attendance is growing, and the last event pretty much reached the capacity. “This is probably as big as we can go because it’s what

fits into our facility,” noted Marcotte. It takes quite a bit of time and effort to organize the event. Besides the show every year the Torquay Block Party Quilt Guild members put their talents together to make a common quilt to serve a good cause. “We usually make at least one donation quilt. We always make one for STARS. We’ve made one for STARS for the

last, I can’t remember if it was five or six years, and we’ve raised over $15,000 for that.” The STARS quilt usually gets auctioned off at the Ashworth Bull Sale in January. The contemporary quilting group consists of 10 full-time and three part-time members, but it’s open for anybody willing to join and it has grown and shrunk through the years of its existence.

Art show allows students to showcase their talents Young people from southeast Saskatchewan had their artwork on display Sunday at Alameda School during the art show hosted by young people who are a part of the Swallow’s Nest studio. Judy Swallow, who operates Swallow’s Nest and serves as the instructor for the youths, said they had lots of interest from the public. Not only did the friends and family of the 30 participating artists turn out to look at the artwork, but the general public wanted to see the art as well. “It was incredible,” said Swallow. “There was a huge variety of stuff that was displayed. One of the groups of kids had created game boards. Others had made a study of humans, so there were human figures and human faces, that

sort of thing. There was lots of landscape pictures, 3D works, character drawings, inspirational drawings that are transfers … so there was a huge variety of stuff.” There were traditional mediums as well, such as pencil prism colours, oils, pastels, acrylics, melted crayon transfers and more. Each young person could submit multiple entries. “That varies, too, because some kids will work on one piece more methodically, and others are quicker with it. Some of them are sketches or inspirational pieces, so those move quickly. And then they can develop them later if they decide to.” Students start meeting in different groups once a week in September. Classes are one

or two hours, and some are on weekends. The children are very motivated, and they’re able to complete their artwork in varying amounts of time. “It’s not a lot of time to create a piece of art, and yet these guys do it,” she said. While most of the kids are from the Alameda area, Swallow has students from other southeast communities. Classes continue until mid-December, when they break for Christmas. Then they resume in January and occur until the art show. “The groups normally stay the same, so the kids when they come in these groups, they work on their work periodically throughout the season,” said Swallow. “But usually they stay with one sub-

ject and work with that until they’re done, and then they move onto their next subject.” Students help with the setup and the installation of the art show. The show was well supported by the public. It’s not a competitive show, she said, but the students are always motivated to improve. “They chuckle at what they used to do,” said Swallow. “They see their own development, so it’s pretty cool. The nicest thing for me is when kids are looking at each other’s artwork, commenting on it and supporting them, I don’t think there’s anything better than that. And it encourages them to do a little better with their own art when they’re seeing what the other kids are doing.”

The need for lower speed There seems to be a renewed call for lower speed limits in certain areas of Estevan. There was a poll on the Estevan Mercury’s website last week that showed 63 per cent of respondents thought there should be lower speed limits on certain residential roads. A jeer in last week’s Lifestyles called out those who drive too fast on roads such as Petterson Drive. And then there was a presentation at last week’s meeting of the Estevan board of police commissioners, in which 10-year-old Boston Tait appeared and called for the reduced speed zone on Victory Road to be extended, making it safer for students at Pleasantdale School. He even had a petition with him. Granted, you might scoff at a 10-yearold talking about the driving habits of others, since he’s more than five years away from getting his driver’s licence. But it is noteworthy that a 10-year-old boy is not only willing to take the time to create and deliver a presentation, but he recognizes that vehicles are moving too fast on his street. A 50-kilometre per hour (km/h) speed limit is fine for most roads in Estevan. Not just the arterial roads, either. There are a lot of secondary residential roads where a 50 km/h speed limit is perfectly acceptable, unless there’s a playground zone or a school zone. Then the speed limit should be reduced. Wellock Road is a perfect example of this. It’s wide enough for the speed limit to be 50 km/h. And while there are some turns, those turns aren’t sharp enough to justify having a lower speed limit. But in the area where the Pleasantdale Softball Diamonds are located, there’s a lower speed limit, and deservedly so. You’d also never think of lowering the speed limit on an arterial road that cuts through a residential area, such as King Street or Fourth Street. But on Petterson Drive? Or Victory Road? Or some of the other tight, winding, residential roads such as Thorn Crscent and Grundeen Crescent? It’s time to consider a change. These aren’t arterial roads, although the northern ends of Petterson Drive do see a lot of traffic thanks to their proximity to shopping areas. But if you’re down at the south end of Petterson, with its sharp turns and abundance of houses, you’ll see it’s not a lead foot’s haven. It’s an area that doesn’t have much in the way of visibility. A 40 km/h limit south of Heritage Drive would be reasonable. A road like Thorn Crescent, which was built in a very narrow fashion and has a few turns to navigate, might be better off at 30 km/h. Back in the 2012 civic election, there was a non-binding plebiscite on whether the speed limit for non-arterial roads should be lowered to 40 km/h. It had a very narrow margin of victory, and the strongest support was from mobile and special polling stations. Council eventually decided not to heed the results. Not many people complained. If you ask most people who live on Thorn Crescent, Petterson Drive and Victory Road, they would likely tell you they support lower speed limits. In the case of Thorn, it’s unlikely you get many non-local drivers. As for Victory Road, most of the nonlocal traffic is likely due to the school. While we can’t base speed limits and other traffic-related issues strictly on the whims of local ratepayers, we do need to hear their concerns, regardless of whether they’re 10 years old or 80 years old.

Cheers to the Estevan Oilfield Technical Society for organizing the Oilmen’s Golf Tournament once again this year. It’s always a fun time for the golfers, and there’s an economic spinoff for the city. Cheers to the Bikers Against Diabetes for their continued efforts to raise money for young people in the community who have Type 1 diabetes. Cheers to the Torquay Block Party quilting guild for hosting their event on Sunday, and for creating so many colourful quilts in the past year. Cheers to the students at the Estevan Comprehensive School who represented this area at the recent Skills Canada nationals in Halifax.

Jeers Jeers to the numerous motorists who have run a red light at the intersection of Fourth Street and Souris Avenue South during the past week. It’s such a busy intersection, and one day someone will be seriously injured. Jeers to the condition of some of the parking lots in Estevan. The only thing worse than a gravel parking lot is a parking lot riddled with large potholes. Jeers to whoever stole the rubberized mulch that was to be used for the play structure at the Royal Heights Veterans’ Memorial Park. It will make that structure safer. Jeers to the people complaining about the Saskatchewan Roughriders loss to the Calgary Stampeders. Don’t they know football well enough to realize that it’s just a preseason game?

Country singer Codie Prevost will kick off theatre’s 30th anniversary By Ana Bykhovskaia

Canadian country music artist Codie Prevost, who has received a total of 26 Saskatchewan Country Music Association awards in his career, is getting ready for his summer tour that will start off with the concert at the Souris Valley Theatre’s Frehlick Hall on June 13. It will also serve as the kickoff to the theatre’s 30th anniversary season. “The Estevan show is the trio show, meaning there is myself and then a multi-instrumentalist and background vocalist, and then also a percussion player. So it’s going to be three of us on stage that night. It’s going to be a lot of fun,” promised Prevost in the interview with Lifestyles. Prevost is not new to Estevan. The last time he was playing here was at the grand re-opening of the Woodlawn Regional Park festival in 2013. Now he is looking forward to checking out the acoustics at a different venue. “I’ve never played at the Souris Valley Theatre, but I had a chance to perform at other theatres throughout the province. And every time you get to perform at the theatre, it’s such a privilege because some of them old theatres and theatres in these communities are amazing and they offer some of the best sound that I’ve ever heard. And just this atmosphere, it creates this great time for people to come together and to have a good night,” said Prevost. To start his music career Prevost took out a small business loan to travel to Nashville

and record his first independent album The Road Ahead. He played in smaller towns all over Saskatchewan being paid $100 a night, and he always appreciated venues, communities and atmosphere. The show he is getting ready to perform for the Estevan crowd promises to very exciting. “With the trio show, we like to have a lot of fun… One of our favourite things to do is to involve as many people out of the crowd as we can in the show and make them feel just as much a part of the show as the band is… We’ll get people singing, we’ll get people to dance. We might even get a couple of people on stage, you just never know. Anything can really happen in this show,” said Prevost. He also noted that on the night of the show they will play a little bit of everything, reminding the crowd of the best hits and songs from his first album released back in 2005. They also will introduce

some of the newer songs, intertwining the music with stories about his musical adventure. After the Estevan show Prevost will head out to the States, where he will be performing an acoustic solo show. The program is called the Meet and Greet Tour. “It’s like an introduction to my music and my stories and kind of me as an artist,” said Prevost. The upcoming concerts get him excited. They’ve been doing some press releases out in the U.S. and have already sold quite a few tickets. He will travel the States for two weeks and then will go back again in August. Later in the year, Prevost also plans to once again go to Australia, the country that he’s been touring once or twice a year since 2015. Currently, he is residing in the Saskatoon area, where besides other things he is working on his new online fan club. “I’ve been working on it for over a year now… It’s hopeful-

It will be like my own personal social network, where all my fans who support me online, who support my music and who come to the shows can join on there and become a part of one big family,” said Prevost. The online fan club members will have access to exclusive music and will get to hear some songs he writes before anybody else. “There is just going be so many exclusive things that other people won’t be seeing that aren’t involved in that. But that’s the way to appreciate my fans who have been there from day one because I really wouldn’t be doing music without all of them,” said Prevost. The name of the fan club will be coming as a surprise soon. Prevost has recently released his new album called Radio and the tour will also help to get this music out to the fans and promote it. “It’s an album that I’ve worked on for a couple of years and I was fortunate this year. Saskatchewan Country Music Awards just took place and the album Radio received the Album of the Year there. So it’s already been a pretty exciting start for the year,” said Prevost. He plans to start working on new music as soon as he is done with the tours at the beginning of the next year. Tickets for the Prevost concert in Estevan are available online through www. and

Lampman equine center celebrates grand opening Ashley Kerslake will tell you about the benefits of the horses that she loves so much. When her new venture, the Prairie Crocus Equine Centre, held its grand opening on June 1, she was able to share those benefits with a lot of people. The centre is located one mile east and a half-mile south of Lampman. “I couldn’t have been more happy about it,” said Kerslake. “There were more than 200 people there, and we were not expecting nearly that many. We were just blown away with how many people were there.” The grand opening saw

people show up early. They had horse rides for the public, with a couple of ponies for children and a couple of bigger horses for adults and teens to ride. A bouncy castle, a barbecue, rock painting, face painting and a petting zoo were among the non-horse related activities. The equine centre opened in the beginning of March, but she decided to wait until the weather was nicer to have a grand opening, so that they could have additional activities. Equine assisted learning and riding lessons are offered at the centre. The former is a curriculum-based program

Basically I’m just the facilitator, the horses are the teachers and you learn together as a team. - Ashley Kerslake

that teaches life skills using horses. “Basically you take horses through different courses using a team, and through various activities, you learn different life skills. Basically I’m just the facilitator, the horses are the teachers and you learn

together as a team.” Kerslake believes there are considerable benefits from equine-assisted learning, and people have to see it to understand what the program can do. “Right now I have an autistic boy who is mostly non-

verbal. When he first started coming out, he would say ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ or he would mostly nod. I got him to say ‘appropriate assertiveness’ the other day, and I was just blown away.” She is the only certified facilitator for equine assisted learning at the facility, but she does have assistance. If she’s on her own, she can only have four participants, but that number increases by four with each assistant. As for riding lessons, she is nearly booked for riding lessons. She has been busy with multiple people coming out. The youngest rider in lessons is about six. She has also experienced support from the community and businesses, along with family, friends and people she doesn’t even know since the opening.

Kerslake has been around horses for most of her life. Her mother had horses as a child, so any time there was anything to do with horses they would go. “We were always at the rodeo, we started taking riding lessons probably 10 years ago,” said Kerslake. They joined the Browning Light Horse 4-H project when it started up, too. And she still considers her horse, Jackson, a registered American painted horse, to be her best friend. “That horse has been through pretty much everything with me. Horses are a really important part of my life, and honestly, I don’t know what I would do without them. Their personality, with how they changed my life in general, they’re just amazing creatures.”

Pony rides and other activities were offered at the Prairie Crocus Equine Centre. Photo submitted

Midale Central School celebrates their 2019 grads Midale Central School is getting ready for the graduation ceremony that will take place on June 14. While grads are getting their dresses and suits fitted and choosing the best spots for photo-shoots, the staff organizes almost everything for the big day. “It’s getting close so we are all very excited, just putting some last minute details on the event,” said Midale Central School principal Cathy Harvey.

She believes all grads already got their gowns, but the outfits are kept in secret. “No one is telling anyone what their dresses look like, so it could be more of a surprise. When you have a small graduating class it’s fun to do things like that,” said Harvey. This year there are 10 students graduating from Midale School, but their achievements are a big celebration for the entire school.

“It’s always an exciting time for everyone in the school because you are celebrating a milestone. Kids have gone through school and now they are moving on and transitioning into the workforce,” noted Harvey. Some of the teachers have known these students since they were in Grade 1 and 2. Other children joined the Midale School later in time, but they all are equally dear to the school.

“It’s very exciting for us to be able to say that we’ve had a part in helping these kids to grow and become the kids they are today,” said Harvey. The celebration traditionally goes beyond one day. Grads have already purchased their “Grad 2019” clothes and wear it around the school. Starting June along with the staff they will decorate the school and practise for the grad ceremony.

“We do have an assembly where we acknowledge the grads right before graduation, just so that kids that can’t make it are able to see our grads,” said Harvey. The graduation day will start off with photographs taken at the school or at the heritage village. The supper will begin at 5:30 at the rink. Following that there will be the ceremony at the school, and then cake and coffee for people and the

grand march. Audrey Trombley, the board chair for South East Cornerstone Public School Division, will do some greetings in behalf of the board. And one of the Midale teachers, Ashley Parker-James, will address grads at their banquet. The award ceremony will also take place the same day, and the Governor General award will be handed to the last year’s award winner.

They will also work together at the Western Premiers’ Conference later this month to develop a unified western approach to harmonization for a joint application seeking appropriate exemptions from federal regulations to make it easier for service rigs to get to job sites across Western Canada. “Oil well service rigs do vital work in Alberta’s oil field and they have been needlessly restricted by regulations that limit movement between job sites,” said Alberta Premier Jason Kenney. “We are working to make it easier for service rigs to get to job sites in Alberta and across provincial borders, alongside the Government of Saskatchewan.” “The energy industry is a vital part of our economies as prairie provinces,” said Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe. “Working together with Premier Kenney and his government, we are laying the groundwork to ensure that service rigs operating in Alberta and Saskatchewan’s oil and gas sectors are not bogged down by unnecessary regulations.”

Southeast firefighters show skills in Alameda Firefighters from southeast Saskatchewan demonstrated their abilities in several different tests during the third annual Alameda/Rural Municipality of Moose Creek Firefighters Rodeo on June 1.

Dwayne Henderson, who is a member of the fire departments in both Alameda and Carlyle, said it was a great day for the participants and spectators. “Those volunteer firefighters who did make it

here, we had lots of fun and we learned things as well,” said Henderson. Teams came from the Carnduff, Redvers, Carlyle and Alameda fire departments. Each team had four firefighters.

The competition was held just west of the fire hall. They showcased their abilities in several different tests using hoses, showing their accuracy with spraying water. They also showed their ability when performing rescues using ladders. One of the tests saw the firefighters use the Southeast College’s confined space simulator. And they demonstrated their strength during a tug of war. The winning team was the Carlyle Fire Department, thanks to their times

Other Other highlights during the day were a bouncy castle for the children, a pancake breakfast, a barbecue lunch and a supper. While he wishes they could have had more fire departments out, Henderson was still pleased with the response and the talents of the firefighters involved. He also recognized it was a busy weekend in southeast Saskatchewan, and that might have kept more teams from entering.

and their overall proficiency in the tests. A large number of spectators turned out for the event. The firefighters also had plenty of opportunities to interact, which Henderson said was great. “That’s why I set up this firefighters’ rodeo, was to get all of these different local fire departments together and to have a fun day, and just to mingle,” said Henderson. “It was excellent.” A popular attraction came midway through the day when the firefighters allowed the kids to use the

Farm semi drivers will require mandatory training New training requirements for those wishing to drive a semi in agriculture operations will be phased in starting next year. The changes follow the implementation of 121 1/2 mandatory training hours for Class 1 commercial semi drivers that came into effect March 15. At the time, the government also introduced a temporary exemption for people who wanted to drive a semi in farming operations. Drivers could get an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fâ&#x20AC;? endorsement on their existing licence by passing the Class 1 tests without taking mandatory training. Holders of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fâ&#x20AC;? endorsement were limited to driving semis within the province.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to take some more time to consult with the farm sector on the impacts mandatory training would have on their industry, recognizing that vehicles used in farming operations are â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in most cases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not on the roads as much as commercial semis; they also tend to travel shorter distances, and through areas with lower traffic volumes,â&#x20AC;? said Joe Hargrave, the minister responsible for SGI. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That consultation work is now complete. The majority of people we consulted in the agriculture sector agreed training was necessary to improve safety for everyone travelling on our roads.â&#x20AC;? Effective March 1, anyone wishing to obtain an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fâ&#x20AC;? endorsement on their existing driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence will be required to take 40 hours of commercial driver training. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fâ&#x20AC;? endorsement will include a restriction that the holder can drive a farm vehicle normally requiring a

Class 1 driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence only within a 100-kilometre radius of the address on the vehicle registration, and is restricted to operating within Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borders. Also, effective March 1, 2021, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fâ&#x20AC;? endorsement will be eliminated and anyone wanting to operate a semi will require a Class 1 driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence, which will include taking the full 121 1/2-hour mandatory training program. This includes all â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fâ&#x20AC;? endorsement holders, who will need to complete the training program. Drivers who have previously taken 40 hours of training toward the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fâ&#x20AC;? endorsement will be given credit for those hours. The changes mean that in 2021, mandatory training programs across the Prairies will be completely aligned. Anyone who obtained a Class 1 licence before mandatory training was implemented is allowed to continue to drive a semi.

What are you doing here in this world? Last week, my brother and I went to the Indianapolis 500. At the start of the race, one of the announcers said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, one of these 33 drivers will do something that no one will ever forget. They will win the Indy 500!â&#x20AC;? So, who won? Do you know? OK, maybe you are not a sports fan, so here are some different questions. Who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979? Who won the Oscar for best actress in 1940? Who was the King of France in 1744? When I asked those questions on Sunday morning, no one came up with the correct responses. ( Just in case you are curious, the answers are: Simon Pagenaud and Jimmy Carter, Vivien Leigh, and Louis the XV). Fame is fleeting. What seems important right now will lose its luster. Eventually, our biggest successes will be forgotten.

Kolby Janssen commits to play for the Thunder Kolby Janssen is looking forward to the next chapter in his football career. A Grade 12 student at the Estevan Comprehensive School, Janssen has committed to play for the Regina Thunder junior team. He expects he’ll be playing on the defensive line for the Thunder. It’s the latest chapter for Janssen. He spent four years in the Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football system before graduating to the Elecs, for whom he has played the past three seasons. Minor and high school football teams in Estevan aided his development with the opportunities they gave him to play the sport. “I learned the work ethic because it’s a lot for high school football to play and make it to every single practice, which I did, and every game. It’s a lot to always be there.”

In his last year with the Elecs, he was named the club’s top lineman for his play on both sides of the ball, and he also won the Bryan Illebrun Memorial Award and the Players Choice Award for his contributions on and off the field. High school football allowed him to make new friends and build up his conditioning. “A lot of the teammates, for sure that’s a big part of it for me, and one of my favourite sports has always been football. It’s nice to continue playing it after high school.” Janssen also played for the Sask. Selects team that competed at the Pigskin Classic in San Antonio earlier this year, a team that he wishes he had tried out for earlier. He was glad to be part of the program this year.

“I started all three games in Texas, which was nice, too,” said Janssen. “Not ev-

eryone who went there got to do that.” Most recently played

Sharks win provincial awards The Saskatchewan Water Polo Awards Gala was held June 1 in Regina, and two members of the Estevan Sharks were recognized. Sadie Smith of Oxbow was named the 14-and-under Female Athlete of the Year. This was Smith’s third season with the Sharks. Smith also played with 16-and-under (16U) water polo teams. “Her athleticism, work ethic and positive attitude stood out to the local and provincial coaches,” the Sharks said in a news release. She is a multi-sport athlete who also excels at speed swimming, volleyball and softball, and she dances with the Drewitz School of Dance. Mikayla Hack of Estevan was named 16U Female Athlete if the Year. She has played water polo for seven years. In addition to 16U teams, she played up with the 19U Team Sask., who just won bronze at nation-

als, and she helped coach the Sharks atom team. Hack also ran cross country with the Estevan Comprehensive School and swims with the Estevan

Golden Eels. Her many defensive steals created counterattacks, and that is something that the provincial coaches emphasized as her strength.

“Both girls are excellent mentors to the mini and atom members of the club and make wonderful representatives for Estevan Sharks,” the team said.

line throughout the game, and finished with several tackles. Many players at the Senior Bowl were players he knows through the Selects and high school football. His team won the game 10-7. Not only he is excited to play with the Thunder, but he’s looking forward to training at their facility in Regina. He committed to playing for the Thunder following the team’s rookie camp in the winter. “I had a really good camp, and they called me up to their coaches’ room and asked if I wanted to play with them,” said Janssen. They said they were impressed with his movement on the field, and they also liked the results he posted in the gym and at the combine. He believes he needs to continue to gain strength and improve his endurance.

Twins split with Swift Current The Southeast Performance Pump midget AAA Twins split home games with the Swift Current 57s on Sunday afternoon at Lynn Prime Park. The Twins dropped the first game 10-4, but recovered to win the second 8-7 in extra innings. In the first game against Swift Current, each team scored once in the second, third and fifth innings, but the difference was the seventh and final inning, when the 57s scored seven times. The twins only scored once in their final at bat. Tyren Dorrance went 4-for-4 for the Twins, with one of the hits being a triple, and added two runs batted in (RBI). Rhett Krafchuk had two hits, and Thomas Husband scored twice. Jayke Smolinski gave up two runs and struck out four in 3 2/3 innings. Rylan Erb came on in relief and surrendered eight runs in three innings; five of those runs were unearned. Boston Walker recorded the final out for the Twins. In the second game, Kieran Stewart’s single in the bottom of the eighth plated the winning run. For the second straight game, the 57s had a big inning in the seventh, as they scored four times to tie the game. The Twins had leads of 4-0 after three innings and 7-3 after six. Dorrance once again led the way offensively with a 3-for-3 performance. He scored three times and also had three RBI. Husband went six innings on the mound and gave up three hits while striking out eight. Kaiden Lyons surrendered all four runs in the seventh inning; three were earned. Alex Kerr had a scoreless eighth inning to pick up the win. The Twins were scheduled to visit the Regina White Sox on June 5. (Results were not available at press time). Their next game will be June 11 at the Regina Athletics.

Black cats are somehow the least adopted in shelters, so Baron and Midnight and all the black cats at the shelter have reduced adoption fees of fifty dollars for the months of June.

Spayed and neutered pets are much happier pets.

The Estevan Humane Society reserves the right to refuse any adoption.
