Desperate times are forcing the City of Estevan to take some desperate measures with its crumbling roads. The City announced over the weekend that due to poor conditions along Highway 47 through Estevan and also on some areas of King Street, they have been reduced to a single lane and the speed limit has been lowered to 30 kilometres. The changes are in effect for Highway 47 from Seventh Street to George Street. The section of King Street from the 13th Avenue intersection to Hillcrest Drive has been reduced to 30 km/h. In an interview Monday, Mayor Roy Lud-

wig said the City made the decision to go with only one lane on the advice of its engineering department. The rationale behind the decision is that the majority of the larger potholes are along the sides of the road. “We were hoping to avoid the worst of them by driving down the middle, which works to some extent but there are still potholes there,� Ludwig said. The first term mayor added that the City has been creating a plan of attack to repair the roads. As soon as weather allows, Ludwig said the City will repave Highway 47 from the train tracks north and Sixth Street from Souris Avenue to 13th Avenue. They will also repave King Street

from 13th Avenue to Hillcrest Drive. While that is good news for local drivers whose patience has worn thin, Ludwig cautioned that the work cannot begin until there is warmer weather and the streets dry up. “We are not looking at a terribly long time but once it dries up we can get serious,â€? Ludwig said. “I can’t stress enough that we totally understand (why the public is upset) and for the most part they have been very patient and understanding.â€? Repairing the various sections of road will not come cheap as Ludwig said their initial estimates peg the cost at roughly $1.4 million. City ⇢A2

WEATHER & INDEX

Flood watch already underway By Norm Park of The Mercury The alert and activity levels have been increased in southeast Saskatchewan as residents and officials prepare for possible flood waters ... again. Although the flood potential remains lower than it was in the spring and summer of 2011 when the southeast sector was inundated with devastating raging river waters that destroyed properties and homes not only in Saskatchewan but also North Dakota, the warning signals have been given. As a result of those signals, the provincial government appointed a special cabinet committee to deal with the results of one of the largest melting snowpacks in recent history. The committee will be chaired by Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter, who spoke with The Mercury last week outlining some of the activities that are taking place to avert another disaster. Reiter, it was noted, is also the

minister responsible for the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program (PDAP). Others on the preparedness committee include Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff, who is also minister responsible for the Water Security Agency (WSA), Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris and Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart. Reiter said the province can tap into the $182 million Growth and Financial Security Fund if need be to cover potential costs associated with flooding. Government officials held meetings in March in at-risk regions, providing more than 200 communities with information and advice regarding mitigative actions that can be taken to prevent and/or respond to flooding. While this was going on, the volumes of water being released from Rafferty and Alameda Dams were being ramped up to accommodate the extra snow that fell in the region in March. “Equipment is being gathered,

everyone is getting prepared,� Reiter said. “The files are still open, the Water Security Agency is lowering the water levels in the reservoirs in preparation, and I think North Dakota is on the same page as us for managing the flow.� Dale Hjertaas, executive director policy and communications for WSA, confirmed that the water release rate in the two dams had been stepped up since the additional snow fell in early and mid-March. The release rate at Rafferty is now 20 metres per second (m3/s) compared with six m3/s at the beginning of winter, which was later increased to 16 m3/s. The release rate at the Alameda Dam was increased to 14 m3/s from the previous rate of nine m3/s. A release from Boundary Dam has also been initiated, but that is done through the auspices of SaskPower, not WSA since that body of water comes under SaskPower’s jurisdiction. There had been no release of water from Boundary prior to mid-March, and it is now being

let go at a rate of six m3/s. Reiter added that the volume of water can only be released in agreement with North Dakota and U.S. authorities who are partners in the reservoir management schemes. “More importantly the levels in the reservoirs are down. Rafferty is at 549.2 metres now (March 28) which is 1.3 metres below full supply level and it can take another 3.5 metres above full supply level for flood protection,â€? Reiter said. That is lower than it was prior to the 2011 flood. “Alameda is 1.5 metres below full supply level and it can take as much as five metres beyond full supply level to handle flood conditions.â€? Reiter added that he knew the last official snowpack forecast did not include the latest snowfalls so the ramping up of releases was seen as prudent by officials on both sides of the international border. “In the fall and early winter of 2010 there Tracking ⇢A2

Souris River south of Estevan has already begun to rise as a result of the spring run off and release of water from the Rafferty Dam.

Tracking made easier with new mobile system ⇠A1 were a lot of creeks running in the southeast. This year the release is a direct response to the additional snow,� said Hjertaas. “Everybody is going to be as prepared as possible. There are always factors to be weighed that we can’t control, so we must be ready for a worst-case scenario,� Reiter said. As a result, Highways and Infrastructure have marshalled road building materials including culverts and bridge replacement components including 30 culvert steamers and trailers filled with other equipment ready to be dispatched on short notice. There are 15 such emergency trailers with 150 portable lighting stands, 5,000 signs and markers, 500 sets of barricades and 25, 400-gallon water tanks, 30 pumps, 100

night flagging kits and 750 barricade lights. Thousands of sandbags and sand are also being made available on top of the bags and materials that may have been left over and put in storage in various RM sheds and shops following the spring floods of 2011. Reiter said WSA provided more than $25 million to assist in the construction of 580 permanent flood prevention projects over the past two years. In the meantime, local residents nervously surveyed the rising waters on the Souris River over the weekend as the big melt began in earnest, keeping in mind the fact that flat terrain areas such as those found around Macoun, Benson and Lampman still hadn’t evaporated to any large measure since the overwhelming onslaught of water in 2011. On March 28, Cheveldayoff said WSA had launched a new mobile website that will provide

immediate updated information during this spring’s runoff. “This will give people direct access to news and advisories so they can check stream flows and lake levels from the palm of their hand,� he said. Users can browse the up-to-date news on a smartphone or tablet and they can search a list of communities and find their local areas and view a chart of the stream flows and lake levels nearest them. To access this WSA moble site, visit www.wsask.ca from a smartphone or tablet and bookmark it.

This includes the Souris River as well as Long Creek. Municipalities needing to secure additional flood supplies are being instructed to contact Government Relations. The equipment and supplies being made available there include the sandbags and sandbag machines, pumps, hoses, barrier systems and small generators. “Everyone has a role to play. I strongly encourage individuals to take active measures to safeguard their property and families, so we minimize the impacts of flooding as much as possible,� Reiter said in conclusion. To further improve flood watch information WSA and government officials have arranged for an open house session today (Wednesday, April 3) at the Super 8 Hotel in Estevan from 3 to 8 p.m.

⇠A1 To help pay for the repairs, Ludwig announced at the March 25 meeting of council that the City has sent a letter to the province asking it to pay 60 per cent of the costs. “We are looking at the same cost-sharing as we would have had on the (urban connector program) with Highway 47 north and south. But now we don’t see the connector program coming until 2014 at the soonest or maybe later,� Ludwig said following the meeting.

“The fact that it is in such disrepair, especially the north side of 47, we have to look at least at a shave and pave to make the road drivable. “This is the letter we have fired off to the Ministry of Highways and they have been very helpful in the past. We are hoping that it will be no different this time and they will come forward and do a cost-sharing on the shave and pave so we can get that road drivable again.� As of Monday, Ludwig said they had not received a reply but the province informed him they have received the request and have also heard from Estevan MLA Doreen Eagles who is lobbying on the City’s behalf. Ludwig said if the province turns down their request, the City will be forced to find the money somewhere else. “Even if the province is not going to come to the table, which we are very hopeful that they will, we will find the money and do it ourselves,� he said. The mayor added that if they do not receive money from the province and the road gets much worse, that the City might be forced to restrict 47 north and Sixth Street to local traffic only and not allow heavy traffic in the area. Ludwig said the City has the right to restrict access within its boundaries noting that such a move would be “very attainable.� Ludwig added that their intent is not to create a controversy, but they needed to express how dire the situation is. “I think we were quite clear on that.�

“The people I worked with are fantastic because we all know we can’t go home and vent issues even with spouses, but we could with one another. We know we A3 have each other’s interests at heart.� – Johanna Audet

Estevan’s first female cop calling it a career By Norm Park of The Mercury If you’re wanting to be polite, you can call it perseverance, or you can simply call it stubbornness. Johanna Audet figures it’s stubbornness ... a trait she called upon to get her through a rigorous testing regime that ultimately led to her joining the Estevan Police Service (EPS) as their first full-fledged female police constable 25 years ago. She’s now on a retirement schedule, probably not for long because she’s still much too young to be thinking about trips south, rocking chairs or CPP cheques. Being an Estevan born-and-raised girl worked as both an advantage and disadvantage throughout her policing career, she said. It helped because she often knew the people she would be trying to help, but that is a double edged sword in that profession. “It was most difficult having to deal with tragic situations. Quite often I would know these people and they’d be dealing with tragedy or death or some other difficult situation, and there I’d be, wondering how I could help.� The best part of being a member of EPS had to be the people she got to work with over the years. “The people I worked with are fantastic because we all know we can’t go home and vent issues even with spouses, but we could with one another. We know we have each other’s interests at heart. We may not be close friends or anything like that, but at work we know they are there for us whatever the situation,� Audet said. Growing up in Estevan meant attending Pleasantdale School, then Estevan Junior High School and ECS. There were brief forays into retail sales with jobs at Woolworths and then Reitmans, but Audet soon found her way to the Estevan Police Service in the spring of 1988 when she applied for a night shift dispatcher position, sharing duties with another girl for about a year and a half. “Then one day, out of the blue, Sergeant (Brian) Renwick approached me to see if I would be interested in becoming a police officer,� she said. “At that time, the way the dispatch desk was set up, I got to see all the comings and goings. I saw all the activity and thought, you know, this could be interesting.� She accepted the challenge and applied for training at the Saskatchewan Police College in January of 1990 and received just two weeks notice. “Chief Ray Worsnop wanted to make sure I was going to be ready, so he made me go through what is called the Coopers Test, which measures your physical strength, agility, endurance and so on. He made sure I could pass the men’s standards so I could be prepared for anything they’d throw at me at the college,� she said. How did she do? “I think my lung is still out there on the track at ECS,� she said with a laugh. That’s where the stubbornness checked in. “No doubt about it. That’s what got me through it,� she said, referring to the gruelling four months at the college. It was there she learned about provincial regulations and statutes, the Criminal Code and lifestyle lessons that she would have to carry with her throughout her career as well as the tough physical training and testing including defence and suspect control techniques. After graduating from the college at the age of 20, Audet became Estevan’s first female cop and Sergeant Gary Eagles was her full-time training officer. Prior to retirement, Audet was no longer a police-

Johanna Audet woman in uniform, but rather a member of the serious crimes investigation unit. There was a period a number of years ago when she seriously considered a move toward gaining sergeant status. “I applied and wrote the exams and was told I had failed, but later found out, I had actually passed when Del Block, now chief, then staff sergeant, was instructed to form up a new test. I approached then chief ‘Bing’ Forbes about the situation and his response was that he didn’t see it that way. I could have pursued the matter, but then I started to think that I could either be right or be happy, and I chose happy. I know I passed, and I’m OK with saying that. I didn’t create the situation and I was willing to leave it there.� Moving into serious crimes investigations put Audet under the mentorship of Block, Estevan’s current chief of police. She’s worked with several chiefs, including Worsnop, Ray Delorme, Peter McKinnon, Forbes and now Block. After Block assumed the chief’s position, Audet worked alone in the serious crimes investigation unit for awhile before being teamed with Const. Tyler McMillen. The hours can be erratic, but not as demanding as the regular platoon schedules, she said. A sergeant’s position arose just recently, but Audet said she didn’t consider the opportunity seriously. It was the stubbornness thing again. “I promised myself when I started that I’d be a cop for 25 years and then go into something else, so that’s what I’m doing. I still love the job but I’ve been out of uniform for four years, rarely have to work nights or weekends. Some of those big drug bust projects would take us into some early morning hours and it took me awhile to bounce back,� she said with a laugh. “I enjoyed the drug investigation work, gathering information, working with other agencies. There is more emphasis on police sharing information among themselves

now. The records management system is run by the RCMP Canada-wide but we could access it for specific purposes for information or education,� she said. Asked about the best part of policing, Audet just shrugged and smiled. “Our sense of fun can be quite different. Not too long ago south of the city we did an arrest of a dealer. We seized his phone and it was just ringing steadily. So we started responding to the text messages much to the chagrin of those who were texting, who were greeted by police officers and not their friendly neighbourhood drug dealer that day. That was fun!� Audet and her mate Dan Chesney are devoting a lot of time now to landscaping and renovating her mother’s home that she purchased following her passing. It’s the home she grew up in since 1967. “I have a part-time job waiting for me and it doesn’t have anything to do with law enforcement,� she added with a grin. Audet said she was proud of her record and the fact she was Estevan’s lone policewoman for about 18 years. Const. Lana Gropp became the second and now there are others filling the ranks. She shakes her head firmly when asked whether or not she encountered gender discrimination, harassment or even apprehension from the male police officers and constables. “None at all, never. When I first started, they all knew me as the dispatcher and felt I could do it. Nothing stands out to me as being a gender issue. There could have been some physical limitations at times, but nothing really. I do recall one time making an arrest of an impaired guy who then lit a cigarette while he was parked in the back seat of our cruiser. I asked him to throw it out and his response was ‘make me’ so I kind of went into a scolding mode and asked him if he’d really want to go back to his friends and have to tell them he had his butt kicked by a woman! He threw it out,� she said with a laugh. “I know it wasn’t entirely correct, and what the heck, I might have ended up with a black eye too, but that’s the only situation I can recall right now,� she added. Role models for her were officers like Block and Eagles as well as many others she met and worked with along the way. “I learned early on that there is one career-ending thing in this business. If you ever hear a cop say ‘this is not in my job description’ you know they’re on their way out because we don’t have job descriptions. You’re never too good to do what all the rest of them have done. We are police ... and the duties are obvious to us. Sometimes we have to be guidance counsellors, sometimes babysitters, sometimes dog catchers and sometimes just coffee makers but the thing is, we all do all of that.� There were a few tears upon her unofficial departure from active duty on March 14, concluding with a gathering of friends and well wishers at the Tap House that evening, a regular stop for some after work. The official retirement date though, is May 1. “It’s been challenging but rewarding. I couldn’t think of anything else I would rather have done. I took some pride in being able to do what I did. I thank those who worked with me, I thank Ray Worsnop for providing me with that original opportunity.� Right now there is no heavy reflection, just an opportunity to enjoy some free time before there will be a transition to a new role in the hometown she loves and has helped protect for 25 rewarding years.

Sun Country board prepares for new budget and ambitious mandate in 2013 In preparing for future demands, the Sun Country board of directors approved a motion during their regular open business session on March 27 to link their head office’s centralized call centre at Tatagwa View to a survival remote site telephone at Redvers. In an interview following the meeting, Sun Country’s CEO Marga Cugnet explained that with a new extended care facility currently being constructed in Redvers, this was an optimum time to install the remote site system. Other major facilities throughout the health region will be connected over time. The $260,000 installation cost is included in the current budget with funding of just over $105,000 coming from internally restricted capital. A three-year operating lease at $65,000 per year plus taxes was also approved by the board. Cugnet also spoke about a possibility of adding more surgical times in operating

rooms in Sun Country’s two main health facilities in Estevan and Weyburn ... perhaps moving some orthopedic surgeries from the hard-pressed Regina Qu’Appelle region to the less busy operating rooms in Five Hills (Moose Jaw), Sunrise (Yorkton) and Sun

Count r y . She said the surgeons would be dispatched from Regina but would probably be complemented by surgical operating room staff members from the host regions for the actual procedures. She said details regarding accommodating

the visiting surgeons and the dispersal of funding for such events had to be worked out yet, but it was a concept that had been in the mix for some time now. It was noted earlier on during the

meeting that up to 13 specialists already make visits to Sun Country facilities and have been reappointed into the visiting staff category. They include three cardiologists, opthalmologist, nephrologists, and an otolaryngologist. The lists also included nine approved locums who provide temporary physi-

cian services in Sun Country along with seven chiropractors, who are located in Sun Country, and a

There were four more physicians on temporary staffing assignments.

The vice-president of finance, John Knoch, reported to the board that at the end of February Sun Country was showing a surplus in operations but he expected the surplus would be reduced significantly when the final figures for March were revealed and the region reached its official fiscal

During the meeting, the board members were taken once again through a wall walk presented by senior administration managers who showed them where gains were being made in terms of fall preventions, family distress incidents, online and face-to-face training programs, technical updates and material management. Cuget also revealed the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine-point strategic plan for 2013-14 that places emphasis on such things as improved care for dementia patients, childhood weight monitoring and a new strategy to handle strokes. There were also better care goals in such areas as antimicrobial stewardship, overall hygiene such as hand washing, injury reductions, improved administration of medications and other safety items. The final strategic goal was to continue with an ambitious physician recruitment and retention program. It was noted that improvements are evident on that file and more physicians are currently in the process of moving into Sun Country or showing active interest in locating in the southeast area of the province.

Tragically Hip to play in Estevan One of the most popular bands in Canadian music will be coming to Estevan in July. It was announced Tuesday morning that the Tragically Hip has been booked to perform at Spectra Place on July 8. The Rural Alberta Advantage will provide the opening act for the concert. Led by lead singer Gord Downie, the Tragically Hip formed in 1983 in Kingston, Ont. and have built a legion of dedicated fans across the country thanks to their incredible catalogue of songs steeped in Canadiana and incredible live performances. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut al-

bum, The Tragically Hip, was released in 1987 but it was 1989â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iconic Up To Here, which helped them reach superstar status in Canada thanks to hits such as Blow at High Dough and New Orleans is Sinking. Overall, The Hip have released 13 studio albums with many of them reaching the ttop of the charts in Canada. They have also earned an incredible 14 Juno awards including Canadian Entertainer of the Year three times and Group of the Year twice. Their latest release, Now for Plan A, came out in October and has also

been well received by fans, many of whom have called it a return to their earlier, more straightforward rock albums. The Hip has been on the road since the release of the album, touring throughout the United States before embarking on a tour of larger arenas throughout Canada in early 2013. Their current schedule has them playing a handful of shows in Europe and assorted events and arenas throughout Canada. Tickets for the Estevan show will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. at Henders Drugs and ticketmaster.ca.

The Tragically Hip will be playing in Estevan on July 8.

Not guilty verdict in weak case A series of small-time criminal activities were dealt with in Estevan provincial court on April 1. Among them was a trial was held for Justin Garrow, and it would seem a poor attempt at an April Foolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day joke. Garrow was charged with assault with a weapon and had been sitting in custody on remand for about three weeks while he awaited the trial. Once things got underway and the one and only witness took the stand, it quickly became clear there were little grounds to convict the Estevan man of the otherwise serious charge. The female victim testified that on March 7, there was an argument between herself and the accused. She began yelling at Garrow and throwing whatever objects within her reach at him. One of those items, an aluminum can, was swatted away defensively by Garrow. It came back, making contact with the victim. He left, and the victim said she then called the police because she was â&#x20AC;&#x153;crazy.â&#x20AC;? She told the court, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was mad at him and wanted to get him in trouble.â&#x20AC;? That was the Crownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case. Greg Wilson, Garrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legal Aid lawyer, called on Judge James Benison to give a directed verdict, suggesting there is no evidence to suggest an assault took place. Benison disagreed, but after little more testimony and the closing of the Crownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, Wilson argued no condemning evidence was put forward implicating his client who sat in the prisonerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box during the proceedings.

This Benison agreed with, and found Garrow not guilty, noting it was the victim who threw the item in question that led to the charge. In other proceedings, Terry Shaw pleaded guilty to his fourth impaired driving charge. Luckily for him, it was his first conviction in 23 years and the Crown did not ask for jail time, instead calling for a three-year driving prohibition. Benison noted that if it were 20 years ago, Shaw would be heading to jail and ordered a two-year driving prohibition and $2,000 fine.

Lessons must be learned These are times of great contradiction in Estevan. We have so many positive things happening in our community with the economy soaring, major initiatives such as the carbon capture project at Boundary Dam taking place and exciting events like the recently announced Motley Crue and Tragically Hip concerts at Spectra Place. However, all anyone appears to be talking about, and with good reason, is the state of our roads. To put it politely, this has become a civic embarrassment. There are so many potholes in certain sections of Estevan that the City has been forced to reduce the speed limit and limit traffic to just one lane. We take great pride in our community, and it’s sad to see that Estevan has become a running joke. It’s even worse to see some constructive comments overwhelmed by the constant pot shots from cretins who have nothing better to do with their lives. But what defence is there? There is really nothing to fire back with when our roads are in this kind of shape. Fortunately, the City has plans to fix the worst areas along Highway 47 and King Street. They will be repaved as soon as the weather permits work to begin. Crews will also be on the road to hit other trouble areas according to the City. Unfortunately, that may not be for at least a couple of weeks. In the meantime, we’ll have to grin and bear both the roads and the comments. It will require levels of patience not seen since the days of Job. While the current focus should be on the matter at hand, when the job is completed we can only hope the decision makers at the City also take time to reflect and develop a plan to make sure this never happens again. It has been well documented that the harsh winter this area experienced is a big reason why some of our roads are crumbling. But the truth is the winter didn’t destroy the roads, it simply finished them off. The destruction of Highway 47 through Estevan didn’t happen in one winter. It was a perfect storm of weather, increased truck traffic and lack of proper long-term maintenance. The first two issues are out of the City’s hands, the third is not. The destruction of Highway 47 has taken place over the course of years and was allowed to happen because of poor maintenance. Yes, the City was correct to wait for funding from the province, but the situation should never have been allowed to escalate to this level in the first place. And that is the lesson that must come out of this embarrassment. The City must develop better practices when it comes to road maintenance and a better plan of carrying that job out each year. These are great times for Estevan but the shine on that diamond is being tarnished by the state of our streets. As a community we need to support our City officials and give them the time to fix this problem. However, we also need to keep the pressure on them and make sure that a thorough review is carried out and something like this is never allowed to happen again.

Prairie Perspective MURRAY MANDRYK Murray Mandryk is a political columnist with the Leader Post

Budget strains Sask. relations There is no doubt that the federal Conservative government has been farmer- and rural friendly. Solid rural support is why the Conservatives have captured 12 or 13 of the 14 Saskatchewan federal seats for the past decade ... and it is also why the Conservatives are fighting tooth and nail to preserve the present split urban-rural federal ridings in this province. This is not a product of some enduring love for the cities or even a reflection of the sincere belief by Conservative MPs that split urban/rural ridings are more reflective of Saskatchewan nature. The Conservatives are confident they have the rural vote sewn up - a reasonably safe assumption, given the size of their wins in predominately rural ridings like Cypress HillsGrasslands, Yorkton-Melville, Souris-Moose Mountain or Kindersley-Lloydminster. SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

One way or another Maybe there are other ways to look at the problem and get the job done. Maybe Estevan officials could consider an old fashioned way to raise the $10 to $12 million that is needed to rebuild our local streets and avenues. Might we suggest the issuing of a local municipal bond program that would raise the money from within the community with the City repaying the local investors at a rate of two to four per cent rather than paying banks and other governments? Keep the money churning at home instead of Toronto. There is some red tape attached to this process, but it might be a partial solution to the current problem that isn’t being addressed effectively right now and Lord knows, there is no way in Hell’s half acre (i.e. Souris Avene north – Highway 47 south) that we can drive a regular vehicle on these IED crater infested stretches of something or other. It’s obvious we can’t wait, so maybe it’s time we formed an action plan instead of waiting for so-called government approval. We don’t need government approval any more. That time has come and gone. They had their chance to step up and they took a pass. The current situation is below deplorable and will obviously get

Norm Park All Things Considered worse once the real thaw begins. I witnessed City work crews frantically shovelling cold mix into 23,267 craters last week, but the holes simply outnumber the pieces of decent asphalt now. And I doubt if Estevan is alone in this plight, so there is no reason to wait for a provincial government to come a calling here. They are focused on Regina and Saskatoon right now and maybe rightfully so. The two major cities rule, I understand. It’s about economic impact, business clout, population and votes. But eventually someone in the legislative seats will have to cast their eyes southeastward and ask the question “now what can be done there to help these people who have provided this government with hundreds of millions of dollars over the past eight years?” Doncha think? What do you say? Dream on? OK. So what are they saying then? "You know that Estevan place, it’s somewhere down there past

Knowing that they will get three-quarters of the rural vote (as the Saskatchewan Party generally does in provincial elections) gives the Conservatives incentive to want to keep split rural-urban ridings where powerful rural support dilutes New Democrat or Liberal support from the cities. This is not to say that Conservative rural support hasn’t been earned. Philosophically speaking, the Conservatives better reflect the older, more conservative views of rural people on issues both social and economic. And give the Conservatives credit for dispensing with the massively unpopular long firearm registry brought in by a Liberal government and supported by the federal NDP. Even the end of the Canadian Wheat Board’s monopoly as a single-desk seller was far more popular than residents of the cities realized. Votes to keep the CWB monopoly on wheat and barley mostly reflected those who were allowed to vote - retired farmers/landowners and smaller producers. The votes did not necessarily reflect those producing the most wheat and barley, those most restricted by the single-desk selling rules. Perhaps not everyone in rural Saskatchewan opposed the CWB monopoly, but many rural residents did see it as inherently unfair. At the very least, it tapped into the streak of independence in rural people who are often frustrated with government making their tough way to earn a living even tougher. That said, this is not the only personality trait of the rural voter. There is also a sense of sharing in rural areas that’s founded on the need to help a neighbour or even a stranger who may be struggling in sometimes harsh and isolated rural settings.

Weyburn, better Google it. I went there once. “We can’t twin their highways or even pave them now. They still like us even though we can’t build a truck bypass for them. We can’t participate in the rebuild of the highway through their city either. We won’t allow them to buy their own CT scanner and operate it. We’re not sure why, but we just can’t. We can’t improve their social safety net. We can’t help them with their affordable housing mess. We can’t fix their leaky school roofs. But hey, we can send a cabinet minister down there again to say thank you. It worked the last eight times, maybe it’ll work again. They can thank them and tell them how well they’re doing in this booming economy. That’s always cheered them up before. Our guy will have to fly in and out though, he can’t risk driving on those highways and streets. Just for fun, we’ll call it the Gullible Traveller’s Victory Tour.” Maybe that’s what they’re saying in the bowels of the legislature this week. Do ya think? Naw, I’ll guarantee you they’re talking about the Regina overpass, transportation hubs and Sidney Crosby’s new jaw ... you know, all the important stuff.

And it’s in this year’s federal budget where the Conservatives may finally have crossed the line into becoming less rural-friendly. Actually, it probably started in last year’s budget, which saw the demise of 112-year-old shelterbelt program at Indian Head, the community pasture program and hundreds of jobs in the federal Agriculture department and Canada Food Inspection Agency. In isolation, farmers and rural folks might be able to rationalize that the need for shelterbelts is a thing of the past with today’s direct seeding techniques and increasingly valued farmland. As well, bureaucrats’ jobs aren’t always seen as a farm/rural issue. But even very right-wing farmers and ranchers benefit from having trees around their yard sites. And they certainly value CFIA inspectors when they insure that lax safety standards at giant packing plants aren’t grinding the beef industry to a halt. Now, add in the eagerness of the federal government in this budget to extract itself from all farm safety nets including AgriStability. The rural-friendly Conservatives have ridden on their reputation of being more in tune with rural/agricultural Canada. And while it’s one thing to end despised urban-based policies like the long gun registry, it’s quite another to take away things from which rural people benefit. Again, there are those who will see the end of the CWB monopoly as anything but a bad thing. However, ending other support programs or safety nets may be less welcomed. And it may even put a strain on the Conservatives’ relationship with rural voters.

Letters to the Editor Patient engagement in health Writer seeks input quality improvement needed The Editor: While most Canadian citizens are pleased with health services in this country, information from around the world tells us there is considerable room for improvement in these services. As part of these improvement efforts, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial and territorial premiers have committed to an exciting new initiative to promote and share innovative approaches to delivering safer and better health care. Premier Brad Wall of Saskatchewan is a leader in this pan-Canadian process. In Saskatchewan, the Ministry of Health, all Regional Health Authorities, and the Health Quality Council are collaborating in an unprecedented improvement effort to ensure that future health services in this province are optimally safe, appropriate, and high quality. As part of this effort, these agencies are engaging many health care workers across the province in improvement work using LEAN methodologies. Another key improvement initiative underway in Saskatchewan is an effort to ensure that all citizens have access to primary care services that are patient centred, community designed and team delivered. This means, if a patient has a chronic or complex health condition, they would receive much more integrated and co-ordinated care from a team of health care professionals (nurses, pharmacists, social workers, family physicians, etc.). This team would collaborate in making care safer and better for the patient. Their combined expertise applied in a team approach could reduce medication errors and ensure more efficient scheduling of diagnostic tests. However the most compelling aspect of the health quality improvement work in Saskatchewan is the effort to engage many patients and citizens in the process. Many quality improvement projects include patient and family participants who are making contributions to the success of this work. On April 10 and 11, the Health Quality Council is

convening a Quality Summit symposium in Regina that will bring together hundreds of participants to share knowledge about health care quality improvement from across Saskatchewan, Canada, and around the world. What is most exciting about the plans for this Quality Summit is that the government of Saskatchewan will fund all participation costs for up to 80 patients and family members. This is another step forward for Saskatchewan, where the engagement of patients and families in health care quality improvement has moved beyond tokenism to become foundational. However, patient and family engagement in health care quality improvement should not just occur at conferences and workshops. It needs to occur every day in every setting in which health care services are delivered. Next time a patient visits their family doctor, they should ask him/ her about quality improvement efforts in primary care and whether he/she is engaged in the process. As well, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how every citizen can play a role in improving health care services and their own personal health. When the health care services you receive do not meet your needs or expectations, speak up and let the workers providing your care know how you feel. Offer constructive suggestions on how health-care professionals could make your future health care experiences better. Expect health care providers to listen to you and act in response to your suggestions. Your life and your health are at stake. Become actively engaged in a process that improves both your healthcare experiences and your future health status. Citizens can and should take an active role in improving the quality of the health care system as well as their own health care. Dr. Dennis Kendel, Councillor, Health Council of Canada

The Editor: I am writing this letter to residents of Bienfait, Roche Percee, Hitchcock, Macoun and asking for someone in these communities to check their SaskTel landline phone bill for a charge and then to give me a call. When we moved to Bienfait in 1996 I had an option to pay a fee to SaskTel so we did not get charged long distance to phone Estevan. As my husband and I were both employed in Estevan I agreed. Then, when SaskTel came out with calls within 25 miles radius of certain towns I tried to get this fee removed again with no avail. Now I pay for a bundle each month for Internet and anytime North America extended long distance B for $52.95. On top of that I also pay extended area calling 0-18

miles res $4.20 a month. I just cannot believe I can phone to Florida 24/7 for one monthly charge, but each month I have to pay an additional $4.20 to phone Estevan. Now what I would like is residents from these other towns and Bienfait could you please look at your bills and see if you also pay this 0-18 miles charge, as the lady that I phoned says everyone in my town pays this. So I thought if Bienfait pays, Roche Percee and Macoun and Hitchcock must also pay. Could you please phone and let me know if you are paying. Call Sandy at 306-388-2283. I phoned SaskTel on March 15, 2013 still waiting for call from rural SaskTel. Thank you for your time. Sandra Hedstrom, Bienfait

Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the accountability? The Editor: A few things that I was taught at a very early age were: 1) respect your elders; 2) when you do a job, do the very best you can ... be accountable for the work youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done. I have to admit when it comes to our city we have a tendency to be reactive and not pro-active. A prime example of this is 13th Avenue/Souris Avenue North / Highway 47 North. Every driver has put up with this terrible road for way too long and then finally ... the fix was the City putting up reduced speed signs. This road should have been properly addressed years ago. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late and the costs have skyrocketed. I really find it hard to believe that a city that has so much to offer allows our city streets to be this pathetic. Are we going to wait another year until the highways department comes through with some cash? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this for several years now. Another year is not ac-

ceptable. I know there are other streets in the city that are terrible and need serious repair ... more than a trailer with mix and a couple of shovels will be needed. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become pro-active. If you feel the same way please make some calls to our city council members and our mayor. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already made my calls and I really feel we deserve better conditions throughout the city than what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been putting up with. I simply think we need more accountability, proactiveness and some pride in the work that we do. The residents of Estevan and southeast Saskatchewan along with our many visitors deserve better and we expect better. The time has come for the City to step up to the plate and take a serious swing at proper maintenance of our streets.

Dairy Queen rejuvenation continues The latest rumour owners of the Energy City Dairy Queen have heard was that the store would be turning into a Burger King. Sorry to disappoint any Whopper fans out there, but Dairy Queen will live on, coming back with a completely new interior. Louise Vandenhurk, Dairy Queen owner, said work is finally underway to restore the local restaurant and ice cream shop, following a fire that shut the business down last June. She noted they did encounter some unexpected holdups once work began on the building. With the building closed down throughout the winter, Vandenhurk said the sewer lines froze, as a result of plugged grease traps. Without any water being flushed through for several months, the mixture turned into something like cement. There were also a few surprises with the floor and the roof, which had to be taken care of, setting things back a couple of weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter of putting it all back together,â&#x20AC;? said Vandenhurk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;According to the drawing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be really amazing. We were already updated, but now the colour code has changed a little bit. What the customer is going to see with the changes in

Construction on Dairy Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building began several weeks ago, following a fire in the building in June 2012. The renovation will offer a new colour scheme and dining area as well as a complete redo of the employee area. (File Photo) the front, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to different colours and a little bit different set-up.â&#x20AC;? Some of the biggest changes will be behind the scenes, and she noted the ventilation will be at capacity, where it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t before. Absolutely everything in the refurbished store will be new, as the smoke damage from the fire left nothing salvageable aside from the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shell. The only thing they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to replace was their charbroiler, which was new before the fire but hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet been installed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three days before the

fire, our charbroiler, which was supposed to come last March but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrive until June, and being that it had been such a busy weekend we decided to put it in our rail car, and never did take it out of the rail car, so we do still have our new charbroiler.â&#x20AC;? The ownership did renovations themselves about a year before the fire, and while going through that, they brought in new equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing we hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t renovated was our work area. We had done minimal changeover in

our back area, which didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it very comfortable for us. Now we had an opportunity to create something that will work great for us.â&#x20AC;? She said things are happening very quickly, and when the work moves along problem free, visible progress can be seen in just a week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our equipment list wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finalized, and we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how long that was going to take. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot going on in there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going great,â&#x20AC;? said Vandenhurk, who noted she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet prepared to divulge a

target opening date, because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have one yet.

She did, however, say Estevanites can expect to see the store opening this spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was gutted. All there was in there was actually a cement floor and rafters. Everything was gone,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As for progress, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what has been going on in there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to look like a store again. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working diligently all the time.â&#x20AC;? Vandenhurk added that because there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much fire, and all the damage was a result of the smoke, the actual structure was still a viable option to clean up and renovate, rather than tear it down completely and start over from scratch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very excited about it,â&#x20AC;? added Vandenhurk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be great.â&#x20AC;?

Organizers may be a little fearful the weather could be frightful this year, but the Day of Pink, to be held April 10, will see students and community members marching down Fourth Street for the second consecutive year.

March of pink back for second year Students and community members alike will once again be storming the main thoroughfare of Estevan as they call for respect. The Red Cross Day of Pink will be held for the second year in Estevan with participants marching down Fourth Street in a pink tide. Shannon Culy, school counsellor with the Holy Family Catholic School Division and local event organizer, noted the schools will be taking part in pink shirt activities throughout the week, with the walk to be held in the middle on April 10. There will be pink ribbon days, where students can

aff ribbons to various belongings in order to show affix their support. She noted they will also have a token the day, where students are awarded tokens for good deeds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If kids are out showing acts of kindness or showing caring behaviour or showing respectful behaviour, there will be tokens passed out to students, and they are asked to pass them out to other people,â&#x20AC;? said Culy. The organizers are quick to call the Day of Pink plans â&#x20AC;&#x153;weather permitting,â&#x20AC;? considering the chilly and unpredictable spring weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having when compared to last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we were in T-shirts and sandals and no snow, and this year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got two weeks

She said they had been kicking around some ideas, but considering the event is still in its infancy, the organizers decided to make sure there is enough support in the community to keep it going. She said bringing in a speaker is something they look at in the future. Culy said they received lots of positive feedback after the first event, a n d many

to get rid of some of that snow,â&#x20AC;? Culy said, noting the plan is still to hold the walk on April 10 at 1:30 p.m., beginning at the Estevan Court House. Walking a loop around the core of the city, everyone is asked to wear their pink shirts and show their support of the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was something new last year, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re checking to see where it is this year. Maybe next weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll partner up with a couple more of the schools and add

of the schools and community groups were asking if the walk would continue. The T-shirts with all new designs just arrived at the school this week, so she said the students are getting excited about the day. Students have been sharing their stories of how the previous walk has affected them, said Culy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all kids recognize that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening and that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real, and there is some awareness being brought to (bullying),â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our whole focus is that there is power in numbers. If we can show our support by doing these activities, wearing the pink, it makes kids realize theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the only ones suf-

fering with it. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going home feeling alone, feeling invisible. It gives them that sense of hope that people are trying to do something about this.â&#x20AC;? Culy said when she went back to the City of Estevan and Estevan Police Service to let them know of the plans to walk, officials remembered last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event and were happy to see that it was going to continue. All community members are welcome to come out for the walk, and for those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a pink shirt, Culy said any amount of pink will do the job of showing support for the walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to get more people from the community to come out and walk with our students.â&#x20AC;?

Estevan Mercury

United Way team reviews 2012 and resets for 2013 campaign by Norm Park of The Mercury The gavel has been passed to a new president and one of Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest and arguably most visible charitable organization will soon set a new fundraising target. The board of directors of United Way Estevan held their annual general meeting in the Fireside Room at Days Inn March 27. Member agencies and other guests joined the directors to hear parting words of thanks from outgoing president Roberta DeRosier and encouraging words from incoming president Dawn Schell. The financial report submitted by MNPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Byron Mack showed that revenues for UW Estevan, which relies heavily on a 34-hour television marathon to raise the majority of their funds, took in nearly a half-million dollars in 2012, $493,152 to be exact with over $480,000 of that coming from the marathon event and legacy donations. The 2011 revenue was even greater, thanks in large part to a non-recurring major gift of over $46,000 while the rest of the revenue base remained constant. With last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising target set at $350,000, there was speculation last Wednesday evening there would be a new goal, but Schell, speaking with The Mercury following the meeting, said that target wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be set until later this month, or sometime in May after the directors have had an opportunity to assess the needs and applications from each of their 17 member agencies. In her farewell remarks, DeRosier noted how the charitable needs in the community are growing in concert with population and business growth and that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are fortunate to be in a position to provide some solutions. Your agencies have the resources and deliver the programs and you all support the community. We get to be a part of it when we partner

United Way Estevan outgoing president Roberta DeRosier (left) handed the gavel of office over to incoming president Dawn Schell during the UWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting that was held in the Fireside Room at Days Inn on March 27. with you to look for those solutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I say solutions, not problems. Every year we see a rise in the number of dollars we collect and a corresponding rise in the number of people we help,â&#x20AC;? she said. After accepting the gavel of office, Schell said she was proud to be a part of the journey. She said while preparing for this day, she began thinking back to her early recognition of the United Way Telethon as a member of the Hillcrest School choir, wondering â&#x20AC;&#x153;who John Deadlock was going to pick on?â&#x20AC;? she said, referring to one of the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early marathon on-air hosts who always interviewed performers and representatives from member agencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then later on my mom got me involved, and I learned how to run a TV camera. That was also one of my first real volunteer experiences. I remember one year falling asleep under the receipt table after a long night shift,â&#x20AC;? she said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wondered how I could give back, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to experience the importance of being the difference so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited about the new directions the United Way is taking with additional opportunities such as getting involved with Challenge Day at ECS, the Hillcrest School breakfast program and the Warm Welcome shelter plus the Day of Caring,

which, by the way, will be June 5 this year. That shows depth. The United Way board is more than a board, they are a team and I am truly privileged to be involved in the dreams and the plans.â&#x20AC;? The 37th annual UW Telethon will be staged in the Legion Hall in Estevan Oct. 18 and 19 this year. Most of the member agencies sent representatives to the supper meeting and they took turns stepping up to the microphone to issue their words of thanks and continued support from UWE and for the United Way. Four current directors, whose terms had expired, agreed to allow their names to stand for another three-year term, so Duane Chipley, Larry Elash, Patrick Fischer and Lynn Trobert were welcomed back into the fold. DeRosier also noted the board had welcomed three new people during the past year. Doug McDavid stepped up to the first vice-presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position while Wendy Gustafson was nominated and elected to fill the second vice-presidential chair and Trobert continues as treasurer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community keeps changing, we must be aware of that and we can only hope right now that flooding is not a community issue again like it was in 2011,â&#x20AC;? Schell said in conclusion.

Wotherspoon pans provincial budget Describing it as a plan that places the burden upon Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children, the opposition NDP have panned the provincial budget delivered March 20 in Regina. NDP finance critic Trent Wotherspoon has dubbed this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial plan as a credit card budget and was particularly concerned about the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to pursue what he described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;costlyâ&#x20AC;? public-private partnerships or P3s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see whether it is in education or costly P3s or debt, the Sask. Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mantra is to let the kids pay for it,â&#x20AC;? Wotherspoon said in a conference call with provincial media March 21. Wotherspoon said among the areas of concern for the NDP aside from the plan to further explore the use of P3s for projects such as new schools and a truck bypass for Regina, are the addition of $835 million in added debt in the past year and education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This budget really failed meeting the needs and pressures of the classrooms and our students, both in our Pre-K to 12 system, which is under great strain, class sizes that are growing, supports that have been cut and in post-secondary education where our universities are placed into a debt crisis and our students are facing massive tuition increases.â&#x20AC;? Wotherspoon said the NDP also has concerns on the health-care front where the government has asked the various health regions to trim $54 million from their budgets. Wotherspoon said the NDP was bothered by the lack of action on long-term care and feels there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nearly enough movement on home care, which were both areas of priority for the opposition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see it as a major priority to create more spaces and more choices for our parents and grandparents. This budget doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go any distance on that front,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Trent Wotherspoon Wotherspooon said the Saskatchewan economy is still one of the strongest in Canada but the NDP fear the government is not doing enough to capitalize on the opportunities presented to them. The Regina MLA also S A S took a number of questions from the media and the first query posed was about infrastructure funding, which is a major topic in Estevan but also throughout other

communities. Wotherspoon said the budget falls short on infrastructure monies and that will place a great strain on cities, towns and villages as well as taxpayers who will bear the brunt of the costs. Aboriginal employment was also a topic of discussion and Wotherspoon said the Sask. Party did not meaningfully address the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been quantified by Eric Howe of the University of Saskatchewan as something that is worth $80 billion to the future of Saskatchewan, let alone the fact it is about fairness and extending opportunity to all,â&#x20AC;? he said. Natural resource royalties were also brought up during the call when Wotherspoon was asked if the province should look at a new royalty structure that pulls in more money for Saskatchewan residents. Wotherspoon said the resource sector is relatively strong at present, but the problem lies with the Sask. Party constantly overestimating the amount of revenue they project each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are believers that you need to find that balance and get the best return,â&#x20AC;? he said. Asked if there was anything he liked in the budget, Wotherspoon pointed to a new program in home care and support for First Link, which is a support system patients and families dealing with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and also additional money for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelters in the province.

Holy Family reacts to budget The Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division said the increase of 2.1 per cent they will receive from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial budget will accommodate some of the inflationary pressures they face, but for the most part, it signals a corresponding status quo budget for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be able to maintain current programming, but it will be difficult to implement any new initiatives,â&#x20AC;? the divi-

sion said in a release issued this past week. The new category of funding for this fiscal year, the preventative maintenance and renewal section for facilities will help Holy Family though. The division said they will be allocated $92,000 of these funds which will enable them to make major repairs to their buildings that would not have been accommodated through the regular budget process.

SaskPower preparing customers for flooding SaskPower is reminding all customers to keep electrical and gas safety

in mind as the snow melts. In a recent press release, they noted that

weather and precipitation forecasts indicate that flooding will likely be a

problem in parts of the province this spring. To prepare before a

Traffic volume at border points eased up in February For the first time in several months, the volume of traffic at the international border crossing at North Portal has recorded a drop. The February comparison with the corresponding month last year showed a slight decrease said the Canada Border Services Agency. The traveller count was down about four per cent as it was for both light vehicles as well as commercial trucks processed at the border point between Canada and the United States. In February this year,

CBSA officers at North Portal processed 21,725 travellers compared with 22,745 in the same month last year. The light vehicle traffic count was 9,800 compared with 9,940 in February of last year and commercial vehicles decreased to 5,240 from 5,500 in 2012. At the Estevan Highway international crossing, the number of travellers remained fairly constant compared with last year with 4,000 being processed this year compared with 4,010 in the same time period last

year. The number of commercial trucks using the Estevan Highway crossing showed a significant decrease this year when compared with February of 2012 according to the CBSA statistics. This year there were 455 heavy trucks bearing commercial loads processed at the nearby Highway port in February compared with 775 for the same period last year. The one area that showed an increase in traffic was in non-resident visitors to Canada which increased

by exactly 100 this year compared with last year, with 695 non-resident visitors arriving through these ports. In February of this year, 45 travellers were denied entry into Canada at North Portal with 22 of those being refused due to criminal records. Other reasons cited for refusal included nongenuine visitor status or applicants with documentation issues. There were eight people refused entry at the Estevan Highway Port for similar reasons.

flood they recommend that customers: â&#x20AC;˘ Disconnect all outdoor electrical devices that are in danger of being submerged and turn off breakers to outdoor plugs. â&#x20AC;˘ Hire a Saskatchewan licensed gas contractor to move gas appliances that might become submerged. â&#x20AC;˘ Unplug electrical appliances and turn off breakers in the basement if water is entering your property, but never enter an area if electrical receptacles are under water or stand in water to operate breakers. Call SaskPower at 310-2220. â&#x20AC;˘ Shut off the electrical and gas supply to all natural gas and propane appliances. If water is entering your property and you are unable to shut off your gas service, call SaskEnergy at 1-888-700-0427. â&#x20AC;˘ Never use appliances

(i.e. gas ranges or barbecues) that are not certified for heating as a temporary heat source because they can create carbon monoxide poisoning. Never use unvented natural gas, propane or other fuel-burning heaters in occupied buildings. â&#x20AC;˘ When using pumps, lights and tools near water, use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) to protect from electrical shock. â&#x20AC;˘ Call SaskPower at 310-2220 to disconnect power during emergencies - weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re available 24/7/365. The release also notes that people should always stay away from fallen power lines, especially during a flood. Water conducts electricity and electrocution in water can be fatal. Electrocution is the second most common cause of death during floods after drowning.

Disturbances and deer dash keep police service busy A group of teenagers causing a disturbance around the Civic Auditorium resulted in a call to the Estevan Police Service (EPS) on March 27. Police found the young people and warned them about their actions and instructed them not to return to the facility or the area. Shortly after their departure, police received a call from the staff members at the Civic Auditorium informing them they had located some drug paraphernalia, so police attended the scene to remove the materials. That same day police conducted a traffic stop that resulted in a 66-year-old man being charged with impaired driving and driving while his blood-alcohol level was over .08 per cent. He now has an April 29 court date. EPS members dealt with a large number of residential alarms and parking complaints during the March 27 day shift and were also asked to check into a traffic accident on the east side of the city. Their investigation into the incident has led to charges pending against an 18-year-old male driver. During the night shift on March 27, police were called to a business on the northeast side of the city in response to a report of an unconscious, intoxicated woman. The

woman regained consciousness just prior to police arrival and departed the premises with a friend. Police followed up on the matter and learned the woman had been taken home. On the night of March 29, a 38-year-old man was arrested for impaired driving and now has a May 27 court date while two other drivers, aged 26 and 37, were handed 24-hour suspensions of their driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; licences after their breathalyzer readings registered over .04. That same night there was a request for police to help locate a missing 15-year-old female. The young girl was located early the next day. Police also attended to a noise complaint in the north central part of the city on March 29. The occupant of the home was warned about the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noise bylaw and no further action was required. A 28-year-old man was arrested for being intoxicated in a public place on March 30 after he was removed from the lobby of a local hotel. During this activity, police learned that the man was in breach of conditions imposed on him from a previous charge, so he now has court date of April 11 to respond to the new issues. A 19-year-old man was also arrested for being intoxicated in public when he was found walking around near a

local lounge making comments about driving home. He was lodged in police cells for his own safety and it was learned that he had outstanding warrants against him from another police service. A blaring vehicle horn attracted the attention of police on March 30. When they arrived at the scene, police discovered that the driver had struck a deer on the west side of Fourth Street, causing extensive damage to the vehicle. The dead deer was later removed from the road by police. Another accident on Fourth Street, this time on the east side of the city, on March 31 was also significant enough to require the services of a tow truck to remove one of the two vehicles involved. No injuries were reported. A domestic disturbance on March 31 required police attention on the east side of the city. The report came in as an assault complaint. During their investigation, EPS members learned that no one had been physically injured during the incident and all parties involved in the dispute remained in the home and there were no further incidents recorded that involved police intervention. On that same night, a young woman reported an assault involving four young men who had confronted her while she was walking in the central part of the city. This matter remains under investigation.

Province increases rental rights for seniors The provincial government has announced a change that will increase the rental rights of seniors in the province. Effective April 1, residents living in retirement homes, seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; retirement communities and independent living facilities that provide meals to residents over the age of 55 will be able to access the Office of Residential Tenancies to resolve disputes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our government is pleased to provide residents living in these facilities with the same rights as other Saskatchewan tenants,â&#x20AC;? Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This change will bring Saskatchewan in line with the rest of the country on this issue, and offer protection and security to our provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This change provides important protection for seniors,â&#x20AC;? Social Services Minister June Draude said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prior to this, seniors had no choice but to sign a rental contract drawn up by the landlord. This levels the playing field, by clearly outlining the legal rights and obligations of both landlords

and tenants.â&#x20AC;? In the past, residents living in these facilities were not covered under The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, and did not have access to the Office of Residential Tenancies. Residents will now have access to that office, which offers a range

Midale

of mediation and dispute resolution services for landlords and tenants. Special care homes and personal care homes are still exempt, as they are licensed and regulated by the Ministry of Health under The Regional Health Services Act and The Personal Care Homes Act.

Phase one of Dominion Heights nearing sell out Trimount Developments representatives made their way to Estevan City Hall last week to deliver a giant cheque in the amount of $220,000 to ensure the construction of a family park in the centre of their new Dominion Heights subdivision. The money is to be used for general park landscaping and equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are at 85 per cent of being sold out of our single family lots in Phase 1 of the project,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Reinheller, vice-president of operations for Trimount. There were a total of 37 single family lots available at the start of the construction season last year and there are now four left, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect to be sold out within the next few weeks based on the sales momentum we have witnessed. The park will be the centrepiece and highlight of the community with trails and paths linking through it. Our vision is to provide a safe, family-friendly place where new residents of Dominion Heights, and perhaps Estevan, can come and enjoy themselves,â&#x20AC;? Reinhaller added. The park will include a general playground, waterspray pad, picnic shelter with washroom facilities, picnic tables and benches, paved pedestrian walkway, trees, shrubs, grass, plus irrigation and lighting. The developers said they expected to move along with the second phase of their development in Dominion Heights this summer which will mean the introduction of more multi-family units to help meet the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s housing needs.

Council Briefs News and notes from the March 25 regular meeting of Estevan city council George Barker of the Red Cross spoke to council about the upcoming Day of Pink event in Estevan. Scheduled for April 10, the event will see local students and members of the public walk through the downtown core to take a stance against bullying in the community. The walk will begin at 1:30 at the Estevan Court House. In support of the event, the members of council and City staff wore pink during the meeting. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Council received a submission from the Grade 7 class at Pleasantdale School, which contained the results of a recycling survey conducted by the students. The class sent out five questions to their parents regarding the curbside recycling program currently being discussed by the City. The survey found that the majority of people do want a recycling program. Among the other comments was that some people would like to see individual bins while another parent wanted assurances that the items are being recycled and not hauled to the dump. It was also noted that the majority of families surveyed do recycle to varying degrees and understand its importance to the environment. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ A letter from Canada Post addressed to Mayor Roy

Ludwig was presented at the meeting. In the correspondence, Tom Creech, the communications officer for the Canada Post Corporation, said they will be transferring the processing of Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mail to their facility in Regina due to declining letter mail volumes. Creech said the change is an efficiency measure and their commitment to a two-day delivery standard will not change. The one visible change that local customers will see is that they will eventually deposit their outgoing mail into one mailbox. In the past there were two boxes, one for local mail and one for mail heading outside of the area. All full-time and part-time employees will retain their jobs and will be re-assigned to other duties. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ The building permit report for February was presented at the meeting. After a quick start in January, the number of permits dropped in February as the City issued just five permits, which had a combined value of $1.87 million. That is behind 2012 levels when the City issued seven permits worth $5.48 million. Commercial permits were responsible for the bulk of Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s totals. Two permits, which had a combined value of $1.25 million, were issued.

Puffalt said there are still a handful of large commercial permits on the horizon and there will be heavy activity on the residential development side. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Council approved a deal to sell 15.20 acres of land in the Trojan subdivision to Solid Rock Developments. The new subdivision will have 11 single-family lots, 49 smaller, single-detached lots for more affordable single family residences and one parcel for multi-family residential dwelling units which could be either four-plexes or duplexes. According to the terms and conditions laid out, the City sold the land for $1 million. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ During the inquiries portion of the meeting, Councillor Chris Istace said he was in support of and would like to see his fellow council members vote for a levy that would go strictly towards roadwork. The idea was initially presented during a public meeting in 2012 and reprised again by local resident Greg Curtis in a letter to the editor. Istace noted there are other communities in the province that have a similar levy, citing Yorkton as one example. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel strongly in implementing a tax levy specifically for roads,â&#x20AC;? Istace said.

Bruins dismiss Cassidy after two years Club looking for new head coach and GM After two seasons, the Estevan Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; executive decided they had seen enough. The Bruins announced on Thursday they would not renew the contract of head coach and general manager Keith Cassidy, two years into his tenure with the club. Cassidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract included a mutual option for a third year, but the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; executive decided not to exercise it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think as an executive, we just felt the club needed to go in a little bit of a different direction moving forward. Obviously this year didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet our expectations and we really feel that this community deserves a winning hockey club,â&#x20AC;? said Bruins president Jeff Pierson. The decision was made at an executive meeting on March 27. In Cassidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first season behind the bench in 201112, a relatively young Bruins squad finished fourth in the Sherwood Conference, swept the Notre Dame Hounds in the survivor series and then were swept by the Weyburn Red Wings in the Sherwood semifinals. Expectations were heightened this season with a large group of returning players, but the Bruins struggled out of the gate and never turned it around. They finished fifth in the Sherwood, beat the Kindersley Klippers in the survivor series, then lost to the Yorkton Terriers in five games in the Sherwood semis. Cassidy didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into specifics regarding what went wrong this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could list a whole host of things, but the fact of the matter is the expectations were there, and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet them.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pinpoint any one thing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to make excuses for it, it just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. It was not the season we wanted it to be.â&#x20AC;? Cassidy, a Winnipeg native, said that when he met with members of the executive, they told him the rationale for the decision was primarily related to on-ice results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They talked about obviously the performance part of things, and that was mainly what I took away from that conversation. Jeffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stated already (in a press release) that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance-based and I can accept that.â&#x20AC;? Asked what he could have done differently in Estevan, Cassidy replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to go back and secondguess anything. We dealt with things that happened in, generally, I think an appropriate matter. There were some good things done there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to say. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just going to say that it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out the way we wanted it to work out.â&#x20AC;? In the press release, Pierson noted that the main factor in the decision was the desire to deliver a winning team to a supportive community â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we will take all steps necessary to make that happen.â&#x20AC;? Asked if he might have had a longer leash if not for the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recent history of underachieving, Cassidy concurred that Estevan deserves to have a successful team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may have been, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to speculate on coulda, woulda, shoulda. The community obviously is hungry for a winning team and it deserves one. I may have a different idea about how to go about doing that, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my opinion and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to argue with (the executive). Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve obviously done a fantastic job of getting the team into a situation where it can be successful going forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The one thing about Estevan is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a motivated community, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a motivated executive and with that opportunity comes a desire to win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thankful for the opportunity. I learned a lot, I loved working in the community and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be around a little longer.â&#x20AC;? Pierson said the executive wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to exercise the option on Cassidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract to give him one more year to prove himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it comes down to (the fact that) we want a winning hockey club and, I can only speak personally, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to take a chance. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta be very mindful of the community that supports this hockey club and we need to deliver a winner to the city of Estevan.â&#x20AC;? Pierson said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put a finger on what the difference was between a somewhat successful first year under Cassidy and a disappointing second year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish I had a really good answer for you. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Almost from the first game of the year â&#x20AC;Ś I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

2013 GMC Sierra Nevada Edition 1500 Crew Cab 4WD

know. Something was off. The first year, your expectations certainly werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as high as the second year, which is something that has to be noted.â&#x20AC;? Aside from Karry Biette, who spent nearly six years behind the bench, the club hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had much continuity in its head coach/general manager position in recent years. But Pierson said the team couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a decision based solely on that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that I think as an organization, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not proud of, you never want turnover as quickly as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had, but in the same breath, you gotta do what you think is right. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the executive was prepared to move forward for the sake of continuity but jeopardizing the future performance of the hockey club.â&#x20AC;? Cassidy came to the Bruins in April 2011 with an excellent track record in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League with the Selkirk Steelers and Winnipeg Saints. Pierson said the team may have to pay more attention to the quality of the leagues the successful applicant has coached in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The success that he had in the MJ, for whatever reason, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite

translate the way we hoped it would in the SJ. Obviously, we need to bring a guy with a proven track record, and when I say that, I think we gotta look at where that track record was established. (That) will be very, very important,â&#x20AC;? he noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want a coach that can walk that fine line between the players still respecting him but demanding and holding them to a high level. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tricky thing, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed to be a winning hockey club.â&#x20AC;? The deadline for applications is April 26. Although the Bruins lose seven 20-year-olds to graduation, Pierson said the expectation for the new coach will be to achieve success quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a guy that we can feel confident can come in and get this club on track in a fairly timely fashion. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a couple of years of trying to build up to something. We have a large number of returning players, so it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big rebuilding year. With some good scouting over the summer to fill the few holes we have, I expect us to ice an extremely competitive hockey club in the fall.â&#x20AC;?

Changes could boost minor sports participation Federal budget removes tariffs on imported equipment One of the highlights of the 2013 federal budget could make it easier for children to play organized sports. As part of the budget that was delivered March 21, federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced a proposal to remove tariffs on most sports equipment, excluding bicycles. The changes represent $76 million in annual tariff relief. The move could see the cost of playing sports drop significantly, although that is dependent on wholesalers, distributors and retailers passing on the savings to consumers.

Skate Repair in Estevan, said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have all the details yet on how this will affect equipment costs. He said the only hockey company heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard from so far is Bauer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just got an e-mail from Bauer on the weekend. It really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say too much. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stipulate any timeframe, or which products might be affected,â&#x20AC;? said Lingelbach. Estevan Minor Hockey Association president Kelly Kjersem said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also waiting for more information, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s optimistic that the removal of tariffs will have a positive impact locally.

Among the examples provided in the budget are hockey skates (current tariff of 18 per cent), other hockey equipment (anywhere from 2.5 to 18 per cent), skis and snowboards (anywhere from 6.5 to 20 per cent), golf clubs (anywhere from 2.5 to seven per cent) and exercise equipment (6.5 per cent). The text of the budget cites the aim to â&#x20AC;&#x153;promote physical fitness and healthy living, consistent with past initiatives such as the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fitness Tax Credit.â&#x20AC;? The changes took effect on Monday. Joe Lingelbach, who owns JLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bicycle and

â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I think will happen is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll help the parents who were pulling the kids because of the price of the equipment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still trying to keep the ice fees down to a minimum so we can break even or have a little left over.â&#x20AC;? Kjersem said some would-be hockey parents will still struggle to pay costs, but noted that the presence of KidSport helps out there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope we can still get some more kids out this way. Parents that were on the edge because of the cost of equipment, maybe now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll (register their kids),â&#x20AC;? Kjersem said.

Hookenson among local midget standouts After wrapping up a three-year midget AAA career recently, Lampman defenceman Edwin Hookenson is expected to be one of several local players with the Estevan Bruins this fall. Hookenson, 17, captained the Swift Current Legionnaires in his final midget season, and while the team (9-25-7-2) missed the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League playoffs, it was a strong year individually for him. Hookenson posted seven goals and 30 points in 44 games, along with 46 penalty minutes. That was a slight improvement on his 27 points in 2011-12. The local product is considered the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top defence prospect. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a look at other local players who suited up in the SMAAAHL this year: Lynnden Pastachak, Yorkton Harvest

Big things were expected from the 16-year-old Bienfait native this year, and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint, finishing fifth in league scoring with 29 goals and 58 points in 42 games. That was also enough to lead the fifth-place Harvest (22-14-5-3) in scoring. Eight of those goals came on the power play, with two others coming shorthanded. Pastachak also recorded 67 penalty minutes. The Harvest faced the Regina Pat Canadians in the first round of the playoffs, losing in five games. Pastachak notched two assists in four games in the series. The right winger has likely played his final midget hockey despite having one year of eligibility left. He is expected to play junior next year. Whether that is with the Western Hockey Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Red Deer Rebels, who own his list rights, or the Bruins,

level with the Harvest and put up respectable numbers. McKersie played in all 44 games and compiled 13 goals and 29 points, putting him seventh on the team in scoring. The 17-year-old centre added two goals in the playoff series against the Pat Canadians. Daniel Wanner, Notre Dame Hounds In his final year of midget hockey, Wanner improved slightly on his numbers from his sophomore season, with 11 goals and 28 points in 40 games. The 18-year-old Estevan forward will be juniorbound next season. However, it was a trying year for the Hounds, as they missed the playoffs with a record of 14-26-4.

Edwin Hookenson will be decided in the fall. Chase McKersie, Yorkton Harvest

After playing his first year of midget at home with the Apex Bruins, McKersie made the jump to the AAA

Jamie Yanko, Notre Dame Hounds After getting a cup of coffee in the midget AAA

ranks in 2011-12, Yanko became a regular with the Hounds this season. The 17-year-old defenceman appeared in 34 games, posting one goal and seven points. He also piled up 63 penalty minutes. Yanko has one season of midget eligibility remaining. Ryan Frehlick, Battlefords Stars Frehlick climbed the ladder each year of his midget career. As a 15-year-old, he played with the midget A Bruins. In 2011-12, he starred with the AA Bruins. This year he made the jump to the AAA level with the Stars. Frehlick was a key contributor for the Stars, finishing fifth in team scoring with 13 goals and 25 points while playing all 44 games. He added six special teams goals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; four power play, two shorthanded â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along with 75 penalty minutes.

ECS badminton kicks off season The 2013 season for the badminton teams at Estevan Comprehensive School is well underway, as the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletes have already participated in two tournaments. On March 16, the senior team saw its first action of the year in Midale. The Elecs went 1-2-3 in the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; doubles event, with Carter Daoust and Dustin Doerr taking gold. Regan Haukeness and

Jordan Krunyk earned silver, while Jarrett Daoust and Ryland Daoust took home bronze. ECS athletes earned two other gold medals. Calder Clark and Harley Doerr won the mixed doubles event, while Alyssa Cunningham played her way to gold in girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; singles. Maddie Ouellette and Brooke Malichewski picked up a silver medal in girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; doubles, and Rik Bastiaansen

got silver in boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; singles. The next weekend, on March 23, the senior team played in Weyburn. ECS had another strong showing in boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; doubles, as Carter Daoust and Dustin Doerr won gold again, while Jake Spillchuk and Cam Biette earned bronze. Clark and Harley Doerr also followed up their Midale performance with another gold in mixed doubles. Haukeness won silver

in boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; singles, with Kolby Fleury earning bronze. Malichewski and Ouellette achieved bronze in girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; doubles, and Paige Collopy got bronze in girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; singles. On April 13, the senior team will be in Oxbow, while the juniors will play a tournament at ECS. Next, on April 20, the seniors will host a tournament at ECS and the juniors will send teams to Midale and Carnduff.

Broncos, Terriers to meet in SJHL final The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two top teams in the regular season will meet in the league final. The Canalta Cup final will kick off on Friday as the Humboldt Broncos and Yorkton Terriers face off in Humboldt. The teams had 76 points apiece in the regular season to finish first in their respective conferences. Humboldt, the defending league champions, took care of the third-place Flin Flon Bombers in five games in the Bauer Conference final. But it took an extraordinary effort in Game 5 on Friday to move on, as the teams played more than four periods of hockey before Broncos forward Joey Davies ended it 65 seconds into double overtime. It was the third game of the series to go to overtime, and the second to go to double overtime. The Broncos won the opener March 22 on home ice with a 4-3 win in double overtime. Humboldt tied it on a Logan Sproule goal with 3:42 left in regulation and the deadlock continued until Neil Landryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal 11 minutes into the fifth period. The Broncos took a 2-0 series lead with another one-goal victory in Game 2, taking the contest 2-1. The series shifted to Flin Flon for Game 3, and the Bombers took advantage with a

4-0 victory at the Whitney Forum. However, the Broncos managed to swipe Game 4 on the road with a 2-1 overtime win, with Cody Pongracz scoring at 12:20 of the extra period. Meanwhile, after taking care of the Estevan Bruins in five games in the Sherwood Conference semis, the Terriers defeated their Highway 10 rival Melville Millionaires in six games. The series began March 22 in Yorkton, and Jeremy Johnson stole the show with a hat trick to give the Terriers a 3-1 victory. The next night in Melville, Yorkton earned another 3-1 victory to take a 2-0 series lead. The Mils struck back in Game 3 in Yorkton though, handing the Terriers a rare home loss with a 3-1 win. Christian Magnus led Melville with two goals. Magnus came up big again in Game 4, with another pair to lead the Mils to another 3-1 victory. The Terriers regained control of the series in Game 5, with Tayler Thompson scoring the winner in a 3-2 final. Yorkton closed it out in Game 6 on Saturday, winning 5-1 in the only lopsided game of the series. Dylan Johnson and Brady Norrish scored twice each. The league final begins Friday in Humboldt. Game 2 is Sunday in Yorkton, Game 3 is Tuesday in Humboldt, Game 4 is April 11 in Yorkton, Game 5 is April 13 in Humboldt, Game 6 is April 14 in Yorkton, and Game 7 is April 16 in Humboldt.

Cassidy ouster not entirely unexpected Keith Cassidy was not exactly blind-sided by the decision of the Estevan Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; executive to relieve him of his duties last week. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say he was expecting it, but coming off a disappointing season, knowing the community and the executive were desperate for a winner, and knowing that a meeting was planned for March 27 to discuss the matter, Cassidy was aware it was a distinct possibility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did have that meeting Wednesday night. There was nothing discussed while I was there regarding the coaching situation. I was just told they were going to speak to me the next day. When you get that kind of phone call after a meeting, you sort of got an inkling of it,â&#x20AC;? Cassidy told The Mercury on Monday. Cassidy had also made a couple of comments dur-

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out ing the second half of the season that suggested he knew his job could be in jeopardy. While some may say he should have been given more time to right the ship, the decision to move on certainly has its merits. During his first season behind the bench in 201112, expectations were relatively low with a young club, and the results were satisfactory: a fourth place finish and a survivor series victory. Expectations ramped up this season, with plenty of returning players and a talented team on paper.

The season began with a 10-2 loss in Melville and the Bruins never got untracked, finishing in fifth place and falling to the Yorkton Terriers in the Sherwood Conference semis. Cassidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismissal was about the results, but also about the reasons for those results. Discipline was a significant issue this season, more so off-ice than onice, and it seemed Cassidy was unable to keep a tight ship at times. C a s s i d y â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a n e w school bench boss who, as he put it in his very

first interview with The Mercury after being hired, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;rant and rave,â&#x20AC;? but there were times this season when maybe he should have. Sometimes a team simply needs a kick in the ass, and he either couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deliver it. Cassidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an extremely kind person, and that extended to his coaching style, sometimes too much. Usually on a hockey team, the head coach is the bad cop and the assistant coach is the good cop. In this case, it seemed to be the other way around. It seemed like there was no urgency this season, even as the Bruins continued to struggle into November and December. During post-game interviews, I wondered when I would hear a quote that recognized and tackled the gravity of the situation. It never came. The reason the execu-

tive wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to give Cassidy more time is because they felt these flaws were fundamental to his coaching style and as such, that the same problems would result in the future. Regardless of Cassidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success in Estevan, I want to publicly wish him the best of luck in whatever the future may hold. He was by far the easiest coach Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dealt with in my short career covering hockey. He was always accessible, and he was certainly the only coach I could ever text less than one hour before game time to get lineup notes. Unlike many coaches, Cassidy really gets the relationship with the media. He was always available when I needed an interview and, for the most part, provided whatever information I was seeking. He often thanked local media for the coverage,

good, bad or ugly, saying it was refreshing after coming from the Winnipeg Saints, a team that got no coverage in a large city. I wrote an awful lot of negative things about the Bruins this season. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t something I enjoyed doing, but it was simply part of my job. Cassidy never got upset about it, or if he did, he never said so. He was more likely to tell me I was absolutely right. Cassidy is a first-class individual who really embraced the community of Estevan, and many will be disappointed to see him go, regardless of his coaching record. Contact Josh Lewis at 634-2654 or sports@estevanmercury.ca. Would it be overkill to say heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fully, completely excited to see the Tragically Hip in Estevan on July 8? No small town bringdown here.

Estevan Sharks win medals The Estevan Sharks water polo club had two teams at provincials in Regina on the weekend and both squads took home a medal. The atom Sharks posted a 2-1 record in the round-robin. They defeated Weyburn 7-2 in the semifi nals, but lost 9-5 to the Regina boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team in the final to take home silver. Taeghen Hack led the Sharks with three goals in the final, while Emily Marshall and Olivia Hong added one each. Meanwhile, the bantam Sharks also recorded two wins in a loss in the round-

robin. They defeated Regina 7-2 in their next game, then topped Weyburn 13-5 in the bronze medal game. Teegan Knibbs scored four goals in the bronze medal game. Donny Mortenson scored three, and Garrett Ford (2), Casey DeRosier (2), Jack Tuttle and Jarrod Buick also had goals. Two Estevan players, DeRosier and Auriel Bill, also joined Weyburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18-and-under team for provincials. They had two wins and a tie in the round-robin and went on to win gold, defeating Regina 11-4 in the final.

Souris Valley Theatre tickets now on sale Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning to feel a lot like spring, and there are few signs the seasons are changing, quite like getting your ticket to the theatre. The Souris Valley Theatre box office opened on Monday, with tickets going on sale for the first time in almost two years, after the past two seasons were awash as a result of foul weather. The wet spring in 2011 left flood damage in and around the theatre grounds at the Woodlawn Regional Park location. But theatregoers can finally look forward to booking their seat for this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slate of performances. Advance tickets for A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline and I Love You, Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Perfect, Now Change are available by calling the box office at 306-461-6869 or by ordering online at sourisvalleytheatre.ca Jocelyn Anderson, theatre administrator, noted nobody at the theatre had run the online box office before so people could expect some early bugs, but assured everyone that they will have any potential issues figured out soon. The season will kickoff with the Patsy Cline show running June 13 to June 23, while the second production is set to run from July 5 to July 28. Anderson said most work has been completed at the theatre.

Tickets for the 2013 Souris Valley Theatre season went on sale on April 1. Tickets for A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline and I Love You, Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Perfect, Now Change are available, while tickets for the independent production of Rider Girl will go on sale May 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The concession is fixed up, and the mobile home is paid for, it just has to be delivered,â&#x20AC;? said Anderson, referring to the new mobile home that will be used for dressing rooms. Following the hiatus of nearly three

full years, the theatre will be opening earlier than it has in the past. Anderson noted the productions previously started in mid-July, but this year will get going by mid-June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything will start moving a little earlier in May,â&#x20AC;? she said, which will be in

time for the first June curtain. The theatre was rolling out a mobile box office in 2011, before the flooding occurred. Anderson said it would be nice to get it out in the community for visibility reasons, but there are some things they need to make sure they have in place, like ensuring they have Internet access inside the mobile booth before they can set that up. There is a third play scheduled for the summer, called Rider Girl, but Anderson said that is being put on separate to their other shows. It is an independent production and tickets will be going on sale for it on May 1. The one-woman show will run from July 31 to Aug. 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not actually producing that one. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bringing that one in, so it will be going on sale a little bit later,â&#x20AC;? said Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still getting a tailgating party ready for Rider Girl.â&#x20AC;? New theatre director David Leyshon will arrive sometime in May, said Anderson, who noted rehearsals will begin in June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our summer students are going to be here in May. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing some school workshops in May and June for our summer theatre camps, so both of our summer students will be around. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be cleaning everything up, making sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for the shows.â&#x20AC;?

Creighton Lodge notes Midale community news By Judy Pratt & Shelly Veroba Creighton Lodge Correspondents Well, March certainly came into Creighton Lodge like a lion with ultimate Saskatchewan snowstorms along with ultimate Saskatchewan winter colds. We are finally on the mend health-wise and we are seeing the sunshine and the snow slowly melt. We ignored the piles of snow and asked the Beta Sigma Phi women to decorate the lodge with bunny rabbits and spring flowers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how a few spring decorations make us all feel brighter and happier. Thanks for the boost! The other wonderful people who helped us get through the dreary month of March were Freddie and the Freebies, Bob Olson, the Church of Christ Singers, Mel Herman and Doreen Sanderson. Music is certainly a highlight of our days and if we could arrange it, we would have singers in here every day! We were also blessed with the services of our other volunteers. We exercised with Audrey Dupuis and Norma Blackburn, celebrated our birthdays with the help of Margaret Mack, Doreen Dirks, Marge Heidinger and Jean Delorme, enjoyed bingo called by Joan Wock and visited with Christina Wock and her dog therapy puppies. Thank you again for the time you commit to our programs. We have many areas where our volunteers are needed and appreciated. If anyone is ever wondering where they could volunteer please consider Creighton Lodge. We could use more volunteers in: * Exercises - our ladies would like to do exercises more than three days per week so we have some openings here. * Walking program - weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for someone to head up our â&#x20AC;&#x153;across the worldâ&#x20AC;? walking program. * Yard work - We keep our maintenance man very busy just cutting the grass on our property and try to get the residents to do the watering and planting of the vegetables. We sure could use help with looking after the flowerbeds for those green thumbs out there.

* Painting - All of our trim on the outside of the building has to be painted so if you are handy with a brush, give us a call! * Talents - if you have a special talent ... singing, playing an instrument, storytelling or even doing crafts, come on over and share with us; we like to keep busy. A big thank you once again to the churches of Estevan for their commitment to our Sunday services. It has been a long winter with many days when we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get out. To know that we could worship on Sunday was something we looked forward to every week. We were very successful at our Easter bake sale, raising $1400 for the residents of Creighton Lodge. Thank you to all family members and residents and to our cooks, Lori Elliot and Donna McGillicky, for all the baking they did. Everyone now has a freezer full of goodies to last a while. Another big thank you goes out to Dianna Eagles of the Creighton Lodge Trust Committee who generously donated an Easter basket for us to raffle off. Managers Judy Pratt and Shelly Veroba attended the annual United Way AGM and dinner. Many thanks were given to the United Way for the funds we receive as a member agency. Their financial support goes towards all of our activity programs, beautifying our yard and garden, spring barbecue, window replacement and many other needs of the residents and the lodge. We are very blessed to be a part of this organization. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re closing our news with the latest poem written by our resident poet, Olive Murphy. Enjoy! WALKERVILLE The walkers are parked a few in a line Some here and some there while their owners dine. Some folks cannot walk without these wheels of motion And so they are cared for with the utmost devotion. They walk down the hall, they do not prance But when the music starts, Oh! How they can dance! Hey serve the purpose of their intention And we are grateful for their invention.

Trinity Tower happenings By Peggy Bolton Trinity Tower Correspondent We hope your Easter celebrations were joyous, with the love of family and friends surrounding you. On March 26, Gerry and Carole Stewart and family, Ian Eryn and Kean came to entertain us. Not only are they all wonderful singers, but they all play a variety of instruments ... piano, violin, mandolin and trumpet to name a few. The children also performed a skit with the three ending up playing the piano together. Karel Marek, Erynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trumpet teacher, played a duet with her. He closed off the program by playing Amazing Grace on the trumpet accompanied by our own Olive Firth on the piano. What an uplifting evening of entertainment! We offer our sympathy to Ione Martin and her family on the loss of her brother. We also extend our condolences to Willene Kerr and Una Seymour on the passing of their cousin, John Ward. The monthly potluck

supper was held on March 27. We wish best wishes to Rose Hood and Judy Pierce whose birthdays were March 31, and to Andrew Verbeem whose birthday is April 6. Helen Ross accompanied Norma and Rory Flemming to Calgary to spend Easter visiting with family. This week I would like to introduce you to a lovely woman named Violet Brown. Violet is a very generous person who is always willing to help others. She is on the visiting committee for the Hi-Risers. Violet wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I married Andrew Brown on Dec. 1, 1950. We had three sons who are still farming at Carlyle, and three daughters. The oldest girl, Dawnna, lives in California and runs her own business. Bonnie Rittaler lives in Estevan and Amanda lives on a farm near Carlyle and her husband works in the oil industry. I have 14 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I moved to Trinity Tower on Dec. 1, 2008. My husband passed away in

By Catrina Moldenhauer Midale Correspondent Welcome to spring, Midale! The Town workers and extra help have been working long hours trying to clear out as much snow as possible. Please do not move any snow off of your property into the drainage ditches and other places they have removed from. They are doing their best to try and prevent flooding. The Midale and areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s M.O.R.E. 2000 Auction will be held this Saturday, April 6. Supper will be at 6 p.m, with the auctions to start right after. Two items donated that will be of interest are a painting by local artist Bev Sobush and a print of Paul Henderson after scoring the game-winning goal in the 1972 Summit Series. This is the biggest fundraiser for the Midale Civic Centre that houses the curling rink and the hockey rink, Harry Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Memorial Arena. The Midale and Area Rec Board holds this auction to raise money to help with the everyday operating costs and upkeep on the buildings. The Midale Skating Club held their annual year end carnival on Thursday, March 28. The children worked really hard to get ready for the carnival. Coach Kelsie Druck and her helpers; Shayna Prawdzik, Taysha Prawdzik and Kolten Ganson did a fantastic

job teaching the kids this year. All of their hard work was greatly appreciated! There were almost 30 children in CanSkate this year. The theme of the carnival was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fairy Tale.â&#x20AC;? The kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; costumes were forest animals, togas, cheetah girls, etc. All the kids looked fantastic and did a great job! Midale resident, Christy Ganson selflessly gave her time to come and emcee the event. A great job was done and the season has now come to an end. The Harry Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Memorial Arena is now closed for the season as is the curling rink. Roller derby will be utilizing the rink throughout the offseason again as they have the past few years. Look for a few renovations to start in the near future. The Midale Rec Board has decided to add porches/enclosed entries to both hockey rink doors to keep the spectators warmer in the lobby. If you have any questions or concerns or would like to rent the rink for any occasion, please call the rink cellphone at 458-7555. Thank you to everyone who supported the rink over the winter - it was a great season! Elementary badminton held their windup on March 28 with the parents playing the students. Club DJ will be having their annual awards night and windup on Tuesday, April 9. Have a great week Midale and area!

Estevan Mercury James Gerald Mack

OBITUARIES

November 12, 1930 - March 23, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, dad, and grandpa. Jim passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, March 23, 2013, at the age of 82 years, at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital in Estevan, Sask. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 60 years, Mary; their children, Cathleen (Warren) Jesse, Estevan, Sask., Wesley (Karen) Mack, Estevan, Sask., Judy (Kevin) Rendek, Calgary, Alta., Norman (Linda) Mack, Estevan, Sask., Ronald Mack, Kenosee Lake, Sask., and Brian (Shannon) Mack, Estevan, Sask. He will be greatly missed by 15 grandchildren: Chad (Angela) Jesse, Estevan, Sask., Ryan Jesse, Regina, Sask., Nathan Jesse, Estevan, Sask., Erin (Doug) Walter, Weyburn, Sask., Kerri (Brian) Hayes, Estevan, Sask., Jamie Mack, Estevan, Sask., Nicole (Matthew) Corner, Calgary, Alta., Jeff Rendek, Calgary, Alta., Allison and Rachel Mack, Estevan, Sask., Jenna Mack, Saskatoon, Sask., Joel Mack, Carlyle, Sask., Nigel, Mason and Lindsay Mack, Estevan, Sask. He was also loved by 8 great grandchildren: Kashton and Brexson Jesse, Brody, Keaton, and Preston Walter, Charlie and Ellie Hayes, and Kaden Corner. He is also survived by sisters Ione Martin, Marie Paladeau, Dorothy (Bob) Jackson; brothers Bill (Mildred), Garry (Maureen), Charles (Dolly), in-laws Jim Morrice, Noreen Morrice, and Margaret Day, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Catherine Mack; brother and sister-in-law, Clarence (Louise) Mack; and brothers-in-law, John Martin and Al Paladeau; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Isabella and Nathaniel Morrice; in-laws Florence (Steve) Lawrence, Dorlane Morrice, Ernie Morrice and James Day. Prayer Service was held Monday, March 25, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. at the Chapel of Hall Funeral Services, Estevan, with Mr. Doug Third officiating. Funeral Mass was at St. John the Baptist Church, Estevan, Sask., on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., with Father Peter Nijssen the celebrant. Interment followed at Souris Valley

Memorial Gardens. Pallbearers were grandsons Chad Jesse, Ryan Jesse, Nathan Jesse, Jeff Rendek, Jamie Mack and Joel Mack. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Jim may be made to St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Foundation, Estevan, Sask. Jim was born on November 12, 1930, to William and Catherine Mack. He grew up on the family farm with 4 brothers and 3 sisters. He attended View Hill School, and then began farming with his Dad and brothers. Jim and Mary were united in marriage on October 11, 1952. They celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary last fall. They raised 6 children. Jim was very active in the community. He was the lineman for the View Hill Telephone Company for 14 years, councillor for the Benson Rural Municipality Division 2 for 19 years, and he served on St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Board when the decision was made to build the new hospital on its present site. Jim was a life member of the Estevan Knights of Columbus and St. John the Baptist Church. In 1970, he became interested in the Simmental breed of cattle and travelled to France and Switzerland to select cattle that became the basis of the present herd. He was a founding member of the Saskatchewan Simmental Association and also a member of the Canadian Simmental Association. He also served as a 4-H leader for many years. In 1988, he won the Farmer of the Year Award. He also enjoyed golfing, playing ball, snowmobiling and card games. Jim and Mary moved from the farm to Estevan in 2005. Jim commuted to the farm everyday, much to his enjoyment. Last year, he proudly helped Wes and Brian with seeding and harvesting of the crop, completing 70 consecutive years of farming. Upon retirement, he painted many beautiful pictures as gifts for each family member and many friends. We will cherish the wonderful memories and love him forever!

Thank You Thank you to Dr. Sheikh, Dr. Christie, Home Care, Corinne Sandstrom, and the wonderful staff on Unit A at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital for your compassionate care. Thank you to Hall Funeral Services for the professionalism that made a difficult time easier. Thank you especially to Dustin Hall for his beautiful singing at the prayer service and funeral. Thank you to Mr. Doug Third for the very heartfelt prayer service. Thank you to Father Peter Nijssen, Father Juanito Vargas, St. John the Baptist choir for the beautiful hymns, Knights of Columbus honor guard, and the CWL for the delicious lunch provided. Thank you to the many family, neighbors, and friends who attended the prayer service and funeral. Also thank you for the many cards, e-mails, phone calls, flowers, donations to St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Foundation, food, mass cards, visits, prayers, love and support. Your kindness is very much appreciated by all of the family, and will be remembered forever.

Estevan Mercury

Spirit of women celebrated with special event International Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day had been observed earlier in the month, but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hamper the Estevan chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women from holding a celebration on Friday, March 22 in the small Legion Hall that attracted about 60 people including 18 of the 24 women who were being honoured for their community leadership skills and activities. Cheryl Andrist, representing the University Women of Estevan, served as emcee for the evening that featured guest speaker Rev. Patricia Wotton of Winnipeg who had also recently served two years as an interim minister at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Estevan. Wotton, now retired, has just published a book featuring the life of Lydia Gushy, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first ordained female minister who travelled miles throughout the Prairies in the early 1900s only after putting herself through university and becoming the first recipient of the Governor Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gold Medal award. With Love, Lydia, is

churches,â&#x20AC;? Wotton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have a food bank, shelter program, programs to deal with alcohol abuse and crisis interventions and pastoral care programs. I saw how your United Way worked, I saw how your Stars for Saskatchewan worked and the Souris Valley Theatre and dance classes, choirs, music festival and many other social programs including those for immigrants. That only comes with a spirited community.â&#x20AC;? The retired minister went on to state that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the celebration of women was appropriate because it is women who muster up what is needed and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let things rest until the needs are met. The legacy of these women we celebrate tonight is a legacy of the pioneer women because they are doing what needs to be done.â&#x20AC;? Andrist joined other presenters Linda Hanson, Astrid Friesen, Joyce Evans, Brenna Nickel, Evelyn Johnson and Vinita Singh in introducing the recipients of the leadership awards and certificates. Those recipients are noted in the accompanying photograph.

The women who received certificates of honour and appreciation from the Estevan chapter of the Canadian University Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club were, back, from the left: Lisa Zepick, Doreen Dirks, Sara Pippus, Marguerite Gallaway, Meagan Kish, Elaine Taylor, Shauna Palmer, Jamie Len-McClelland, Debbie Hagel, Sandi Klatt and Heather Vermeersch. Front: Shirley Andrist, Liz Sargent, Erna Pullam, Colleen Macmillen, Carol Cundall and Bonny Curzon. Missing from the photo are: Debbie Kvamme, Patt Lenover-Adams, Jean Bode, Johanna Audet and Brenda Lyons. a work of love for Wotton, she said because it focused on the spirit of the Prairie women, something she admired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are women who have clear eyed practicality, clear vision, clear appraisals and then clear resource-

fulness. These women pull together to do the work with graciousness and wisdom and humour,â&#x20AC;? Wotton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Wo m e n w h o c a n laugh at themselves because they know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done and know what they can do.â&#x20AC;?

Wotton said Estevan needed to be congratulated as a resource based city. She said communities that are built solely on resources often turn into soulless lives for their inhabitants, but that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happened in Estevan.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are impressed with what you have here with nursing homes, hospital, leisure centre, arts programs, active library, golf course, parks and as I discovered when I arrived here, a comminity of co-operation among your

North Portal news 60 and Over Club news By Betty Baniulis North Portal Correspondent There were two tables in play when the bridge club met at the home of Dorothy Fuchs on Monday, March 25. Brenda Schindel took high honours with second high going to Dorothy Fuchs. Pat and Trish Barker and their daughter and son-in-law, Erin and Todd and two boys from Prince George, B.C., spent a week together in Huatulco, Mexico. They returned home on

March 27. Of interest: Born to Brittany and Greg Wock of Hitchcock at the General Hospital in Regina on March 23, a son, Jase Alan, weighing 8 lb. 10 oz. Proud grandparents are Mark and Carol Davis of North Portal, and Kelly and Penny Wock of Hitchcock; proud great grandparents are Alan and Shirley Davis. Scott and Dorna MacDonald and son Declan drove to Bismarck, N.D., where they spent the weekend. Visiting on Good Fri-

day with Mark and Carol Davis were their daughter and son-in-law, Brittany and Greg Wock and infant son Jase Alan of Hitchcock. Alan and Shirley Davis joined them for supper. There will be a pancake breakfast at the Portal Community Hall on Sunday, April 14 from 10 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., U.S. time or 9 a.m to 12:15 p.m., Canadian time. The breakfast is sponsored by the Masonic Lodge, and proceeds will go towards their college scholarship fund. Come and enjoy!

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the meeting on Thursday, April 4 at 12:30 p.m. Cribbage will be played following the business session. And another reminder ... Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clothing will be at the 60 and Over Clubroom on Friday and Satur-

day, April 5 and 6 beginning at 10 a.m. daily. She features fashions by Alia and Tan Jay. We received some favourable comments about the decorations in our clubroom, especially our â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas treeâ&#x20AC;? which is done in an Easter theme. All the credit, of course, goes to our decorating duo, Al and Charlene. Another great job, thank you. Winners of the bridge played on Wednesday, March 27 were: Doris Heidinger, first; Al Fellner, second; and Irma Lesiuk, third.

The Thursday, March 28 cribbage winners were as follows: Coming first was Betty Daniels, while Grace Carlson and Jake Fichter tied for second and third. Being fresh out of ideas as to what to get his mother-in-law for her birthday, a man bought a large plot in a very expensive cemetery. He got her nothing the next year, for which he received some cricitism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you complaining about?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used the gift I gave you last year.â&#x20AC;? Have a good day.

HOME IMPROVEMENT

Stain your home's wood exterior like a pro (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;When our eyes turn to look at the prettiest house on the street, you can bet the owner worked hard to make that happen. The appeal, you may find, is rarely due to just one feature, but rather to several complementary features that create the â&#x20AC;&#x153;perfect package.â&#x20AC;? Did you know, for example, that the most attractive home exteriors often use as many as three or four wood stain colour combinations? According to experts, a perfect package soothes the eye by blending hues from the same colour palette. The first step is to decide the main body colour to be used on your house, a decision often determined by the shade of the brick or stone. Once this main colour is chosen, you can mix and match complementary stains from the recommended palettes for all the exterior wood. Here from the Olympic website (www.olympic.com) are a few colour coordination tips: Body colour: Brick and stone on a

house often deliver a deep saturation of colour, so decide if your masonry is in the colour family of green, brown, red, cream, blue, grey or yellow. Any dominant shade must be considered. Roof: No need to match it, just harmonize the stain to it. Keep in mind that a gray, black or other neutral colour does not need to be taken into consideration when selecting stain.

the house trim is white, they should be white, too. Before buying the stain, take a moment to visualize how you want the wood to look. Different stains deliver different finishes. For example, if you would like

the underlying wood grain and texture to show, use a semi-transparent stain. If you want rich colour without losing the texture of the wood, use a solid stain. Additional guidance is found on the Olympic website; follow Discover Color to Confidence to the Stain Color Visualizer.

Windows and moldings: If the window molding is recessed, a darker hue will highlight the details. Decks: Use a semi-transparent stain on the surface and a solid stain on the rails and spindles for a dramatic look. Doors and shutters: For impact, use a prominent colour on your front door. On the shutters, use neutral to blend, or use dark to accentuate.

Gutters and downspouts: These should be painted inconspicuously. If

HOME IMPROVEMENT

Paint has power if applied with the professional touch (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Any good professional painter will say that 90 per cent of a home painting job is done before the can is opened. There is a tremendous amount of prep work needed in order to achieve a perfect finish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your home is your most valuable possession and believe it or not, your paint finish can make or break the look,â&#x20AC;? says Sharon Grech, the colour and design expert for Benjamin Moore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We've all seen poor paint jobs with messy lines, drips and splatters left behind. This can really leave

a poor impression. So unless you're willing to take your time, go through all the necessary steps, and have a steady hand, you may want to consider a pro.â&#x20AC;? Leading paint companies work extensively with pro painters to enrich communities and make the world a more beautiful place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pros that work with us, for example, can trust that the 'colour lock technology' will bond the pigment to the paint for a richer, more vibrant shade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and one that is true to the colour

you chose.â&#x20AC;? Grech offers some additional benefits of working with a professional painter: â&#x20AC;˘ They won't overbuy paint; they estimate accurately for the job. â&#x20AC;˘ They are experts with impeccable attention to detail. â&#x20AC;˘ They repair surfaces if needed to ensure a flawless, even application. â&#x20AC;˘ They properly protect the home to

ensure the paint only ends up where it's intended. â&#x20AC;˘ They ensure the colour on your wall is true to the colour you chose. â&#x20AC;˘ They can provide sound advice on how to uphold the beauty and durability of the paint over the long term. More information on how to find a pro painter in your area is available online at BenjaminMoore.ca.

HOME IMPROVEMENT

Build a concrete house for its beauty and superior performance (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Home-building technology is solving the high cost of heating and cooling. The traditional wood framing for walls can now be replaced by a totally different system using the pre-assembled, interlocking 'insulated concrete form'. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our ICF system creates an envelope of superior strength, insulation, conservation, and energy efficiency,â&#x20AC;? says Todd Blyth at the offices of Nudura Integrated Building Technology, a Canadian leader in this field both north and south of the border. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of wood walls, the ICF system interlocks to create one monolithic wall with a thickness from 10 to 30 centimetres (4 to 12 inches). This immediately gives your house

better wind and fire protection, better sound resistance, improved temperature control and many additional occupant comforts,â&#x20AC;? Blyth explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better still, the insulation and durability delivered can save you up to 70 per cent on your energy bills. You get a far stronger and 'greener' house but with a warm and inviting atmosphere.â&#x20AC;? And yet, once the practicality and the good health of the occupant are assured, it is the aesthetic beauty of the house inside and out that is an equally important 'dream home' feature, Blyth continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A concrete home can be designed outside for smart-looking brick, or for more creative finishes like stone, stucco, wood siding and more, just like a

traditional house. Inside, all of the beautiful architectural shapes, like arches, bay windows, and specific door styles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can be easily achieved for a spectacular interior design.â&#x20AC;? Building the walls with concrete is an option, he says, that needs to be decided and requested early in the planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ICF construction is already a decade underway, but breaking away from yester-

day's standard is still a slow process for many builders. At the construction site however, the pre-assembled concrete forms lock together, like Lego, to build the walls far quicker than wood-framing, with far less waste, so its popularity with builders is only a matter of time. More information is available online at www.nudura.com.

HOME IMPROVEMENT

Eye-popping kitchen sinks for those who dare (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;It is the sink today that is taking its rightful place as the most popular feature in a 21st century kitchen. Indeed, installing one that dazzles the on-looker is a pleasure of the kind that keeps on giving. So, how do you choose the right dazzler for you? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We guide homeowners and renovators by asking a lot of questions about their taste, beauty preferences, family size, kitchen size and home dĂŠcor,â&#x20AC;? says Diana Elliott at Blanco Canada, an industry leader in kitchen art technology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your choice may also be influenced by a favourite colour or material, by craftsmanship, or by a design you've already seen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and you may also be influenced by practical considerations like budget, installation challenges, and the amount of surface space available. We always advise homeowners to take their time in choosing the very best quality they can afford

since it is usually quite costly to upgrade later after countertops are cut and installed.â&#x20AC;? If you're looking for excitement though, she says,

don't miss all the fuss right now over 'silgranit', a superstar material for sinks that was showcased this year at the 2013 Interior Design Show in Toronto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silgranit is a patented material that combines 80 per cent natural granite stone with a premium acrylic resin formula to deliver unprecedented strength and durability,â&#x20AC;? Elliott explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silgranit sinks are nonporous for exceptional hygiene and easy care â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it is scratch-proof, chip proof, stain proof, and highly resistant to the heat of saucepans straight from the stove. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As exciting,â&#x20AC;? she continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;our company is known for the rich colour available in our sinks and the silgranit models lead the pack in a range of six, nonfading, densely-textured colour choices, plus a new one, we call Cinder. This one is a beautiful dark charcoal with a hint of brown. All of our colours are imbued with a subtle mineral pearlescence â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and wait until you see how Cinder's natural stone texture complements so many other colours in your kitchen. It's complex but velvety warm; dramatic but also serene.â&#x20AC;? The two trendiest Cinder-coloured sinks this year, according to Elliott, are the Precis Cascade, a lavish single-bowl undermount, and the module-designed, Blanco Modex, an equally elegant cubic-bowl topmount designed with accessories to significantly increase the surface workspace. A large filigree cutting board in an ash wood composite can be moved across the entire sink if needed, or positioned efficiently to suspend the stainless steel colander over the bowl at the same time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Modex is an attention-getter,â&#x20AC;? Elliott continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and what separates the Precis Cascade model from all other sinks is its revolutionary bi-level bottom. The lower level is ideal for large pots and pans and the raised level can function much like a second bowl, perfect for cutlery or glassware, or for washing fruit and vegetables. â&#x20AC;? As well as Cinder, both of these models are fashioned in other colours as well. More information is available online at www.blancocanada.com.

HOME IMPROVEMENT

Home dĂŠcor trends: wire brushed hardwood floors (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;According to design experts, the prominent trend in home decor today is to bring warmth and timelessness of a bygone era to contemporary living spaces through rustic wire-brushed hardwood floors. As the heart and soul of the decor, these floors are used to convey a sense of comfort and well-being associated with a cozy home environment. Just imagine a cabin in the mountains, a ski lodge or an old farmhouse in the country with wide planked unfinished floors and you get the feelings these floors help to emulate in today's home decors. In wire brushed flooring, soft portion of the wood is removed to expose the grain and bring enhanced definition to each plank. Beautiful knots and dramatic oak character marks further emphasize depth and texture of wire brushed flooring. To keep up with the demand for wire-brushed floors, manufacturers such as Mercier Wood Flooring, one of North America's leading hardwood flooring manufacturers, has developed an innovative wire-brushed collection featuring varying stain colours in matte finish that respect the natural beauty of Red Oak and its rustic look. Featured in Mercier's Heritage Series is wire brushed Red Oak in colours such as Americano, Graphite, Latte, Macchiato, Mondo Novo and Romano. Each stain brings its own distinct personality. With a medium brown that perfectly highlights the wood's character, Romano plays the authenticity card, explained Collin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether it is combined with a sober style, a bold design, brightly colored objects, or a monochrome environment, this chameleon color is bound to turn heads.â&#x20AC;? Mondo Novo is a light brown stain that looks almost grey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A popular color with homeowners today this stain brings out the woods natural character,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mondo Novo gives warmth and atmosphere to your home with style and originality.â&#x20AC;? This trendy color offers versatility to your decor as Collin explains it can be used in a chic contemporary dĂŠcor or in a more traditional setting. Americano is a lighter brown stain that perfectly highlights the rich grain of the wood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rough and textured look blend with golden shades express the noble and distinguished origins of a hardwood floor,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americano fits perfectly in a rustic dĂŠcor where modern elements can be used to bring contrast and modernity.â&#x20AC;? These new colours are available in solid, engineered and LOC versions in varying widths. In keeping with the demand for rustic hardwood options, Mercier also added this year an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Authenticâ&#x20AC;? series available in a number of species in 6 ½ boards. In this series the wood takes center stage as there's no stain just the warmth of raw wood complete with the variations in hue that mark every board making it the genuine article. Images of a rustic family cottage also come to mind with the new Cabin Pine series from Mercier and its roughly planed 7Âź inch boards. Solid white pine options in various stain colours like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old farmhouseâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old time splendorâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Antique charmâ&#x20AC;? are a spectacular addition to any decor and suffuse your space with the spirit of yesteryear.
