If you weren’t there, you were missing out on a lot of fun. That was the consensus of opinion flying around the Boundary Dam reservoir beach Saturday afternoon during the second annual Beach Bash. The event, sponsored by the Woodlawn Regional Park Authority and the Estevan Chamber of Commerce (tourism), was a hit right from the noon hour opening bell. The newly built dual beach volleyball courts were kept busy all day and even into the evening as the lights came on. At one point, a count of watercraft in and around the action centre came up with 80 while the head count of beach fans exceeded 1,000,

even as more people spilled into the venue as night fell and a fireworks display lit the skies. A wakeboarding demonstration by local champion Taylor Johnson as the sun slid slowly down into the western skies, kept the beach people enthralled as did the early evening lighting of dozens of Chinese lanterns that lifted upward toward a full moon in a clear sky. The hot and muggy weather throughout the day was perfect for those who sought out the refreshing waters of the lake. Those who found their way to the beer garden, and the nearby picnic area were treated to a variety of musical entertainment that included the Third Town

Band, Spencer Vaughn Lafrentz, Jen Lane and Smokekiller, Tequila Mockingbird and Third Degree Birnz. That music went on until early Sunday morning. The beer gardens also played host to over 150 people who gathered around a big screen television to watch the Roughriders versus Alouettes CFL contest in the mid afternoon. Youngsters were invited to dig up treasures buried in the sand in a certain area of the beach during the day while others swung out over the water on a tree rope, floated in small inflatable dinghies or engaged in chicken fights in the water. Organizers of the event were all smiles as the lineup grew at the two concession Over ⇢ A2

City finished 2012 with surplus Despite facing a number of challenges, the City of Estevan managed to finish the 2012 financial year with a surplus. The audited financial statement for the past year was presented at the Aug. 14 regular meeting of council by Byron Mack of MNP. The City finished the year with a surplus of $1.035 million, which was a vast improvement over 2011 when they posted a deficit of $848,815. While the surplus is obviously welcome news, the City still has many financial hurdles

facing it. The report indicated that as of Dec. 31, 2012, the City had a bank indebtedness of $11.37 million. It was also carrying a long-term debt of $23.77 million. “The big number on the financial statement is definitely that bank indebtedness,” Mack said. “The line of credit or overdraft as you like to call it increased significantly in (2012) going from a position of $3.2 million as a liability, to $11.37 million as of year end.

“You go through the numbers and this is the number that changes the most within the net financial position within the City. The operating fund was used to operate and fund a lot of the capital additions within the City.” Mack added that in 2012 $15.5 million was spent on tangible capital assets, with $11.8 million of that total going to infrastructure. The other large expenditure was the T-Rex fire truck that was purchased for the Estevan Fire Rescue Service. Financial ⇢ A2

Firing It Up

Glen Stomp of Griffin was just one of several volunteers who worked hard at getting old farm machinery oiled and fueled up for some demonstrations and parades as part of the Midale Pioneer Echoes celebration on the weekend. Here he applies some good old cranking power to fire up an old tractor.

Over 1,000 people take in event ⇠ A1 stands, remembering that even though last year ’s inaugural Beach Bash was dampened by a constant drizzle of rain, the spirits had remained high. That event didn’t attract anything similar to Saturday’s crowd due to the persistent rain and cooler conditions. “The official admission count was 1,036, but that doesn’t include those who arrived by boat or any of the volunteers,” said Rebecca Howie, events manager for the Estevan Chamber of Commerce.

She figured the physical body count would be in excess of 1,500 at the peak of activities. “Clean up on Sunday took most of the day, five volunteers and five park staffers,” she added. There were no major glitches in terms of crowd control or behaviour as the music and fun rolled into early Sunday. “There was great interaction with the bands. The one concession area was overworked and had a long lineup all day and night, but concession operators from

all over the region were invited to set up on Saturday and I guess they chose not to, so it is what it is. I expect the two who were there were pretty happy. They were very busy all day,” Howie said. This year, the weather was co-operative and the community response was hugely encouraging, leaving the Woodlawn Regional Park Authority and local C of C members and administrations, including Howie with encouraging thoughts. There had been some speculation surrounding

the rehabilitation and expansion of the Woodlawn Park system to include the Boundary Dam site, as to whether it would be well-received or needed. That speculation ended on Saturday. “Oh ya, there will be Beach Bash 3,” she said with a laugh. The planners for the third annual event will know what to expect now and will plan accordingly, which means additional parking. “We had set out space for 400 vehicles and ended

up having to send quite a few into an overflow area,” Howie said. The fireworks display under the direction of Paul Carroll was an evening highlight and he was given full credit for providing a great light show that was within budget and quite spectacular as the fireworks were launched from the lake. “I don’t have the financial results, that was Nathan’s (Puffalt, Woodlawn Regional Park supervisor) area, but I know we more than covered costs

tice was scrapped by the City after MNP made a number of recommendations following a separate audit the accounting firm conducted earlier this year. “The projects now are accounted for through different funds so you can properly track long term projects funded through long term financing and shorter term projects through the general operating account.” Overall, the City finished the year with total revenues of $28.40 million, which was up by almost $3 million from 2011. Expenses saw a similar rise, going from $26.28 million in 2011 to $28.19 million. Mack said the bulk of the revenue increase came from events at Spectra Place, although he noted that expenses at the facility were around the same level. “It isn’t run for a tremendous profit,” Mack said. Mayor Roy Ludwig said due in large part to the recommendations made by MNP, he feels the City has taken a number of positive steps forward that will benefit Estevan in the long run. “We needed those initial steps to help us turn the corner and now, along with those steps and continued diligence with our new City treasurer working closely with MNP, we have complete confidence that we will get our financial house in order,” Ludwig said. “We understand and we are aware of the fact that we have serious debt. Is it unmanageable? It is not. We are working very hard and we have every confidence we will get our debt level down to a more respectable level, and within a manageable time I believe we should be sitting fairly well financially.”

Travellers denied entry into Canada after CBSA checks

The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) processed over 43,000 travellers at their two major border ports in southeast Saskatchewan in July. CBSA officials noted there were a number of incidents that required more than cursory attention by border inspection agents during that period of time, including a July 1 impaired driver who failed an alcohol screen breathalyzer test. He was arrested by CBSA agents and turned over to the RCMP. A 39-year-old man was refused entry into Canada on July 5 due to a criminal record. The traveller had told border officials he had no criminal history so the false declaration meant he wasn’t able to enter the country. The man originally denied the two impaired driving convictions attributed to him, but later admitted to the offences. A 47-year-old commercial driver was refused entry into Canada on July 7 after his three driving under the influence of alcohol charges were uncovered. The driver was unable to continue his scheduled trip to Edmonton and it was noted that as well as the three DUI convictions, he also had three convictions for assault and one sexual assault charge and conviction. Another man, a 40-year-old, was denied entry on July 15 when it was discovered he had been convicted of assault as well as impaired driving. The man, who had been on his way to Alaska, was sent back to the United States. A 28-year-old commercial driver from Michigan was refused entry on July 17 due to a recent conviction for possession of cocaine. The man had been attempting to get to Estevan but was returned to the U.S. instead. A 22-year-old man travelling to Alberta for work informed CBSA agents he would be staying in Canada for six months. The man had no letter of employment and no work permit and admitted he had worked previously in Canada without authorization. He informed officers he wanted to live in Canada permanently and would be staying with friends, but he was issued a removal order and barred from returning to Canada for one year. Later that night the same man appeared at the port of Coutts, Alberta and informed agents there he was coming into Canada just to visit friends for a month. He was again returned to the U.S. and was counseled to not attempt to enter until he was eligible to do so. On July 20, CBSA officers seized an undeclared .40 calibre handgun at the North Portal Port. They also seized a

loaded magazine and 30 rounds of ammunition from a South Carolina man traveling to Alaska. The man maintained the moving company was to blame for the error, but CBSA officers found the items packed in his personal vehicle in a safe on top of luggage. The firearm and ammunition were seized, he was issued a $1,000 penalty and was subsequently allowed to enter Canada. On July 22, CBSA officials refused entry to a 35-yearold commercial driver from Wisconsin who had an outstanding charge for a hit-and-run incident. The man insisted the case had been dismissed but court records indicated the matter was still an ongoing item in the justice system. On July 24, CBSA officers made a significant seizure of suspected child pornography when a 45-year-old Minnesota man was entering Canada to deliver goods. During a secondary examination, officers uncovered numerous photos of suspected child pornography on the man’s mobile tablet and located more images on his cellphone. He was arrested and turned over to the RCMP’s Integrated Child Exploitation Unit. On July 30, CBSA officers issued a removal order against a man who misled officers about his intention in Canada. He told officers he was travelling to Alberta and would eventually seek employment, but through further investigation, officers found he had already received an employment offer, and the employer was in the process of obtaining a Labour Market Opinion. The man stated he would be sharing an apartment with two friends, but officers found out the friends were actually his landlords and that he had placed an online ad looking for roommates to share living expenses. Officers also found messages between the man and a female Canadian friend that stated she would marry him so he could obtain status in Canada. He was barred from attempting to enter Canada for one year. Things were no less busy at the Estevan Highway Port in July, with a 39-year-old man being refused entry on July 13 due to a conviction involving conspiracy associated with a theft of $35,000 from his former employer. The man was spoken to about the procedures that he needed to follow to apply for re-entry and was returned to the U.S. On July 14, a 23-year-old woman informed officers she was moving to Canada and would be living with her Canadian boyfriend and would eventually find work. She

admitted she was not aware of requirements she had to meet to enable her to live and work in Canada and since she had no money and no ties to the U.S., she was refused entry and advised on the steps she needed to take to gain entry. On July 18, a 57-year-old Utah man arrived at the Estevan Highway port with the intentions of driving to Estevan for the afternoon. He was refused entry when background checks revealed he had two reckless driving convictions and one other conviction for assaulting a police officer. At the Torquay Port on July 10, a 36-year-old man working in North Dakota told a CBSA officer he was coming to Estevan for the day after he had just obtained a passport. He was refused entry though when it was discovered he had convictions for destruction of property and vandalism. At the Oungre border crossing, a 61-year-old commercial driver from Washington was refused entry when it was discovered he had previous convictions for sexual assault, sexual abuse, theft and possession of marijuana. Later that same day a 66-year-old South Dakota man in transit to Alaska was denied entry when it was revealed he had been convicted of killing an animal. On July 18 at the port of Oungre, a 60-year-old Montana man was refused entry after a background check revealed he had been convicted on five counts of human smuggling from Mexico into the U.S. as well as convictions for assault, driving while impaired and a variety of other convictions. At the Northgate border point, a Saskatchewan couple who declared $1,540 as the price they paid to purchase three purebred pit-bull puppies that had been shipped from Georgia to North Dakota and subsequently into Saskatchewan, were called into question. They were prevented from bringing the puppies into Saskatchewan when the CBSA officer challenged the bill of sale that did not appear to be legitimate and the declared value did not appear consistent for other values placed on purebred puppies. After further questioning the female traveller admitted that the purchase price had been $2,850. That led to an $800 penalty for providing a false bill of sale. A truthful declaration would have resulted in a $285 payment. CBSA reminds Canadian travellers returning home after visiting the U.S. that they can keep track of wait times at major ports, including North Portal by visiting http://www. cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/bwt-taf/menu-eng.html or by subscribing to Border Wait Times on Twitter.

Border traffic numbers Nominations open for volunteer down at North Portal medals in Saskatchewan Once again, July was a very busy month for Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) personnel at the two major crossings in Saskatchewan. In spite of a decrease in the volume of traffic in July of this year compared with July of 2012, the processing of travellers continued to be challenging. While the count was down at the North Portal Port, the busiest in Saskatchewan, the traffic at the Estevan Highway Port increased compared with last year’s figures, said CBSA officials. In July of this year, 36,078 travellers entered Canada at North Portal compared with 38,221 in July of 2012. Similarly, the number of regular vehicles that passed through the North Portal gate in July was down slightly from 11,238 in 2012 to 11,121 this year. Commercial truck count was also down from 11,171 last year in July to 10,377 this year. The figures support a recent trend that has seen a decrease in traffic at North Portal for the past few months. But on the contrary, the Estevan Highway Port of entry experienced an increase in the number of travellers processed in July this year compared with 2012. This year there were 6,743 travellers processed at this port compared with 6,201 last year. There were a total of 3,746 vehicles passing through to Canada at the Estevan Highway Port plus 227 commercial trucks. Last year there had been 3,330 regular vehicles and 227 trucks.

If you know an outstanding volunteer or someone who exemplifies exceptional community involvement, now is your chance to nominate them for the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal. The deadline for nominations is Oct. 18. “Our province is well known for our impressive volunteers,” Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield said. “I encourage everyone to consider nominating a deserving individual to receive the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal, so that we can celebrate their tremendous contributions to our province.” Any Canadian citizen who is a current or former long-term resident of Saskatchewan is eligible for nomination. Nominations are not accepted for sitting members of Parliament, the Legislature or judiciary. Groups or organizations cannot be nominated and posthumous nominations are not accepted. The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal is silver, circular in form and suspended by a V-shaped clasp from a ribbon of green and gold, the provincial colours. It bears the Saskatchewan shield of arms with the Crown and the motto Nos ipsos dedimus (We Gave of Ourselves). Recipients also receive a circular silver lapel pin displaying the Saskatchewan shield of arms superimposed on a “V,” a certificate and are entitled to use the post-nominal letters S.V.M. Recipient names are also inscribed on a board adjacent to the Athabasca Gallery on the main floor of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in Regina. The medal is presented by the Lieutenant Governor during an annual ceremony. Since its inception in 1995, 156 people have received the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.

Warm Welcome to return this winter After a successful debut this past winter, the Warm Welcome program will be returning again in the fall. Lieutenant Brian Bobolo of the Estevan Salvation Army was before city council last Wednesday to speak about the shelter’s first few months of operation and their plans for the future. Bobolo also asked council to continue allowing shelter guests free access to the showers at the Estevan Leisure Centre, a request that was carried unanimously. Bobolo said the seeds that grew into the Warm Welcome were planted around this time last year by Pastor Brenna Nickel and many of the congregants at St. Paul’s United Church where the shelter is located. He said they had come across a number of people who were struggling to find shelter throughout the year and wanted to help

those in need. “They wanted to assist the community in a direct manner as Warm Welcome does,” he said, “through providing the provision of direct services to people who

require emergency shelter as well as generating a spirit of volunteerism in the community and Warm Welcome accomplishes both of these things.” Bobolo said it was

Warm weather heightens West Nile concerns A week of warm weather has drastically changed the outlook for the West Nile virus in Saskatchewan. According to the weekly report from the provincial government, the increase in temperatures has led to an increase in the mosquito population and risk of obtaining WNV. The report noted that the cooler weather experienced over the last few weeks did limit Culex tarsalis activity and lowered West Nile virus transmission and risk for southern Saskatchewan. However, this has given way to much warmer conditions and this will result in increased mosquito biting activity and virus transmission over the next week. Although Culex tarsalis is susceptible to any kind of environmental disturbance, such as cool evenings or thunderstorms, if there are several consecutive nights of stable, warm weather there will be increased activity of this mosquito, particularly on warm, humid nights. “Therefore, there is still a risk of human infections as long as we see Culex tarsalis coming to our traps and the weather stays

warm.” the report said. The report encouraged people to get out and enjoy the beautiful evening weather but also to use personal protective measures, particularly as dusk approaches. The public should cover up and use repellents when their activities take them into areas where mosquitoes are present — whether one is working outdoors, hiking, camping, farming or gardening in the back yard. It should be noted as well that Culex tarsalis is difficult to see and bites will often go unnoticed. The traps have shown the difference that the weather can make as the results for week 32 (Aug. 4 - 10) show the numbers of Culex tarsalis have rebounded and peaked in southern and central areas. Preliminary trap results for week 33 (Aug. 11 – 17) show that numbers are beginning to decline, but remain at relatively high levels in a few communities, including Estevan. The communities with the highest average numbers for week 32 include: Estevan (140.2/night), Assiniboia (21.8/night), Swift Current (15.5/night), and Maple Creek (15.0/ night).

program began to spread, Bobolo said other community groups such as the United Way and Estevan Ministerial Association and businesses including Tim Hortons and the Days Inn threw their support behind the program. Bobolo said all involved were very happy with how things went over the winter. “There is a spirit of community that developed at the shelter throughout the winter and this is very important to people who have issues with finding secure

shelter, especially in smaller centres like Estevan. “A lot of times they feel marginalized, they feel like they are treated like misfits. A lot of times smaller centres can’t understand why there is a need for an emergency shelter like that and they have a hard time finding acceptance and we really provide that at the Warm Welcome Shelter.” The shelter was open for 75 nights over the winter and had 210 admissions, the bulk of which were men. Bobolo said, thanks to word of mouth, they expect to house five to six people per night. After being open for just four nights a week over the winter, Bobolo said they plan to be open every night, which he feels will benefit the community in a number of ways. “I think Warm Welcome aids the ongoing labour shortage that we are experiencing in the city of Estevan. We help individuals stay a little bit longer, rather than come in, realize there is no housing and do an about face (and leave). “We also provide a valuable service to the City of Estevan on cold weather

Lieutenant Brian Bobolo nights. When the cold weather alerts come out, the City of Estevan can say we have a plan.” In his closing remarks, Bobolo said that contrary to the stigma that comes with a shelter, he feels the presence of Warm Welcome in Estevan is a sign of success, proving that the people of the city look out for each other.

“The city should not be embarrassed to declare to the world we have a shelter like Warm Welcome. This is a symbol of great community success. An entire community has come together to provide this service. We can hold our heads up high and say we go the extra mile. Yes, we have issues, but we take care of our own.”

A6 EDITORIAL

What’s really fair? On the surface it appears as if Regina’s great waste water treatment plant debate bears no relevance to anything that is going on in the rest of the province. Anybody who has given even a casual nod to news in the past six months realizes that the debate in Regina is focused on two camps. The argument being waged pits the private versus public teams against each other. It has become very clear that even though a referendum has been called to allow citizens to vote on whether Regina should pursue a P3 contractor or build the waste water plant using public funding and operations, their council prefers the P3 model. The arguments for both sides are genuine and both teams are making excellent points to defend their stances. What it boils down to, it seems, is the fact that $58 million in federal funding will only be made available to the Regina project if they use the P3 model. The feds check in with money if the project ends up in the hands of a private contractor to build, maintain and operate with the understanding that the City of Regina still owns the facility and overall direction. For some reason, if Regina’s citizens determine the project should be built using the traditional model, the federal government won’t be writing any cheques. We don’t know why that is, but it is a compelling feature that definitely favours the P3 model. Where Estevan, and for that matter, all other Saskatchewan cities, come into play on this subject is the fact that if the federal government is going to play fast and loose with our taxpayer funds, what might we expect with our next major infrastructure idea? Estevan is just putting the finishing touches to our own major expansion of water storage and treatment facilities and we don’t think we were graced with any federal funding assistance, no matter what process we used. Let us keep in mind that $58 million injected into the Queen City is $58 million that won’t be going anywhere else in the province as part of any equalization payment or infrastructure formula. So in an indirect way, you might say we are contributing to the Regina waste water treatment project, whether we agree with it or not. At least we’ll be contributing to it if they vote to pursue the P3 model in September. If Regina gets those federal funds, it means we don’t. Now Regina’s project is a worthy one, no doubt about it. It is needed. But we believe it is still a Regina project, not a provincial or federal project. We can see where federal money can be legitimately used and defended when it comes to building roads, bridges, airports, health facilities and yep, even event centres and power plants with clean coal technology that serve a wide range of populations. But waste water treatment plants for individual cities using tilted playing fields? Is there a different set of rules for larger cities versus smaller cities when it comes to questions of unequal treatment? What kind of precedent is being set? We have to question the dictating of the process that has to be followed to gain federal funds, but then, only after shading the rules to allow it to happen. We’re not sure either of these pass the smell test. But if this is a precedent being set here… let’s hold our collective noses and get in line.

No need for potash panic Living in the topsy-turvy world of commodity prices where markets for grains, oilseeds, pulse crops, oil and potash are always uncertain, rural people know better than to panic over a bit of bad news. Others now in full-scale panic over the admittedly bad news in the potash sector might be well-advised to follow suit. The relative ongoing strength and success of the overall Saskatchewan economy and government finances may mean that we will weather the bad potash news better than we think. For those of you who missed it — or perhaps missed the significance of it at the time — a move by a potash producer half a world away will supposedly hammer us hard here in Saskatchewan. It was announced late last month that the Russian potash producer Uralkali would stop selling its potash through the Belarusian Potash Co. — a cartel similar to our own Canpotex SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

A market to get into Several years ago I attended a public meeting in my hometown. As is typical in most communities, public meeting meant the usual 22 people showed up. The topic was where they could put the local farmers’ market. They had lost their traditional neutral Saturday location. Eric, the local Co-op food store manager, raised a few eyebrows when he appeared to make an impassioned plea to have the market set up in his store’s parking lot. “But why would you want that Eric? They have the fresh food, maybe better than yours? Why set yourself up for that?” one skeptic asked. “So they get their strawberries at the market, not from me. But maybe they’ll come to my store to get the whipped cream and then they might remember they need milk and soft drinks. They’ll maybe buy bread or buns at the market, but I can sell them the butter and the market will sell them the honey, but I’ll sell them the peanut butter. I want the market in my parking lot,” he said. Of course after 30 years, I’m paraphrasing here. But you get the gist. Eric knew how to market, and he recognized opportunity when it slapped him in the face. Now the Canadian Manufacturing and the Food In Canada Magazine article I read recently informs me that in British Columbia, the farmers’ markets are gaining in stature and clout. They are a $170 million business there

Norm Park All Things Considered and a recent survey that included 9,819 respondents in 33 province wide centres, showed that market growth was 147 per cent in six years. The number of big farmers has gone down in those six years but the number of small farmers, different farmers, who are protecting the land base, are increasing. The average farmers’ market buyer has increased their average market day purchases from $23.41 per visit to $28.81 over the six years. What is really interesting though, is that there is an 80 per cent loyalty retention rate for the outdoor markets. OK, some of them are indoors or under a roof. But this is where Eric’s argument is proven out: The survey indicated that 55 per cent of the farmers’ market customers intended to shop and buy something else in a neighbouring shop that same day. So Eric was right. Was the survey legitimate? Well, the people who did the fact checking seemed to think so. They visited all the neighbouring businesses and 80 per cent of them reported increases in sales on market days. Taking it even further, 80 per cent of the shoppers said the farmers’ market was their primary reason for being in that particular area of the city that day, so one side

that markets its product collectively to keep the prices higher. Of course, we’re all taught that such free-market competition is a good thing and it is … if you are a buyer rather than a seller. As a potash producing economy, anything potentially lowering the price can hit us hard. Consider the 2009 provincial budget when a predicted $2 billion in potash revenue for the province disappeared because Saskatchewan Party government officials bought into the potash industry’s overly rosy forecasts for sales and prices. And as the biggest producer of potash — 20 per cent of the world’s supply, exceeding PotashCorp’s contribution — anything Uralkali does is a big deal in the industry. By deciding to go it alone, it is expected that Uralkali will undercut potash prices. This could have a big impact on Saskatchewan government revenue. Analysts suggest that potash prices could fall by 25 per cent to around $300 a ton compared with current prices of $400 a ton. One analyst from BMO Capital Markets went so far as to call it “the end of the potash world as we know it” while the Royal Bank of Canada said the Saskatchewan economy would now be growing half as quickly as predicted. In turn, the Royal Bank predicted this may reduce Saskatchewan’s GDP growth by a full percentage point, with further impacts down the road because of stalled potash mine construction. Premier Brad Wall and his Sask. Party government responded by saying it was too early to tell — exactly what

of facts bears out the premise made on the other side of the issue. Businesses can feed off one another. I believe that’s marketing 101, but there are some business people out there who still don’t buy into that fact and I don’t know why. Vehicle dealership owners will confirm the theory. Get a whole bunch of them rounded up in one city or square and watch the sparks of competition fly and count the increasing influx of potential buyers. Word gets out that this is the place to get the best buy, best vehicles and you’re purchasing from the best guys and girls in the business because they’re sharper than a Bay Street trader moving Nortel shares. They’re not desperate, they just know stuff about opportunity. So is this my pitch for farmers’ markets? I suppose so. I confess, I’m a fairly regular attendee at the local market for a variety of reasons. If the weather is good, I can loiter and that’s something I can’t seem to be able to do anywhere else. There is no pressure, no hard hawking big blowers hauling me into their carnival tent … just regular folks offering their best products. You meet good people and even if it’s wet, windy or yes, snowing … you’ll still see good spirits and have a few laughs if you need them. For me, I accept it as a brief social outing, even if I’m not buying. I view it as a kind of good habit to get into.

one might expect from a government because it is its job to downplay negative news and present an optimistic view for voters and potential investors in the province. But if initial indicators mean anything, Wall and his government appear to be right. The latest job statistics for July show 590,000 working people — an increase of 16,100 from a year earlier. Of course, this means little in relation to the Uralkali decision that just happened. But considering where the jobs are being created, it does show that Saskatchewan is more than just potash. Of more interest, however, is the news emerging from the Saskatchewan government that the surplus budget is still largely intact. Despite a projected decline in forecasted potash revenues of $21.3 million, overall revenues for the 2013-14 budget are actually increasing by $11.3 million because of stronger oil prices. Alas, our surplus is now expected to be smaller because of $43.6 million in extra spending, mainly for flooding assistance that the government didn’t adequately budget. And things could potentially be worse on the potash front because the government predicted in its March budget a $122.5 million increase in potash revenue over the 201213 budget. It still may be overestimating its potash revenue. But what it does seem to show is the Saskatchewan economy is diversified and somewhat resilient. In the unpredictable world of commodity pricing, it may be a little early to panic over potash.

Letters to the Editor

SSBA looks forward to new direction The Editor: After discussions earlier this month with Minister of Education Russ Marchuk and newly-appointed Deputy Minister of Education Dan Florizone, the Saskatchewan School Boards Association is encouraged and excited to begin working with our partners in education and government to shape a new direction in education for the benefit of all Saskatchewan students. The government of Saskatchewan, school board members, school division administrators, teachers, students and their families all share a common and overarching goal — improved student achievement and success rates in our province. However, of late, the education plan and agenda for this province has been largely “Ministry-driven” and that approach has not resulted in the outcomes we all desire. Research supports and experience proves that the best educational decisions are those made closest to home, by those who best know and understand their communities. Saskatchewan is a large and diverse province — from the North, to sparsely populated rural school divisions, to large urban systems experiencing tremendous growth — each faces important and unique challenges. These challenges have not and cannot be overcome with a centralized, “top down” approach. Instead, all education partners — from locally-elected school board leaders

to the teachers and other staff in the classrooms of this province — must be engaged in developing and implementing a shared plan for success that produces positive results for children and youth. The Saskatchewan School Boards Association has received the commitment of the Deputy Minister to immediately begin developing an “education-sector” plan for publiclyfunded Pre-Kindergarten-Grade 12 education in this province. The plan will be created by all education partners in Saskatchewan — the Ministry of Education, elected school board members, administrators and teachers in consultation with students, families and local communities. It is hoped that the draft plan will be completed by December 2013 and presented for approval to elected school boards and the government of Saskatchewan. This approach bodes well for the success of Saskatchewan students and supports the Premier’s commitment to the continued growth and prosperity of our province. We are excited about this long-overdue change of direction. Our students deserve nothing less! Janet Foord, President, Saskatchewan School Boards Association

EYES camp focuses on science, engineering

The Educating Youth in Engineering and Science camp was held for five days last week at ST. Mary’s School. On Friday the students finished the week by building make shift cars that were raced by instructors Sarah Hognestad (below in blue and Dallas Montpetit (below in purple).

A number of Estevan kids had the opportunity to learn a little more about science and engineering last week. The Educating Youth in Engineering and Science camp was held for five days at St. Mary’s School. Organized and sponsored by the University of Regina, the program is geared towards kids from Grades 2 to 9 and includes a number of activities, such as creating a car out of various parts the kids collected. “We do all sorts of science and engineering activities; hands on, that is our focus,” Sarah Hognestad, who teamed up with Dallas Montpetit to run the camp. “One of the favourite (activities) this week was called Elephant’s Toothpaste. We combined hydrogen peroxide and yeast with some dish soap and it makes a reaction that looks like toothpaste.” Hognestad said the 23 kids involved in the camp were very attentive and retained much of the information thrown at them throughout the week. “A good example of that was when we talked about Cartesian planes. We talked about plotting X and Y co-ordinates and we did a human-sized Battleship game. At the beginning, it was kind of like ‘what is a Cartesian co-ordinate and which is the X and which is the Y’ and by the end of it, it was like ‘I know which one is the Y axis because it points upward.’” Hognestad noted that over 1,500 kids throughout Saskatchewan take part in the various camps organized by the university.

Crop development lagging

HIGH SCHOOL HAIR CONTEST

The recent run of warm weather has helped, but crops throughout Saskatchewan are lagging behind with respect to their development. The weekly report from Saskatchewan Agriculture said crops are 10 days to two weeks behind the usual average in many areas of the province. In the southwest and west-central regions, some winter cereals are ready to straight cut and producers have just started swathing canola. Desiccation of peas and lentils has started, and other crops are starting to turn in some areas. In the southeast, most crops are in the podding and filling stages, with some of the later seeded crops finishing up flowering. There are reports of some canola just starting to be swathed and peas and lentils being desiccated. Most crop reporters are indicating crops are 10 days to two weeks behind normal in development for this time of year. Rainfall recorded in the region ranged from nil to 58 mm (Briercrest area). The Redvers area has recorded the highest cumulative rainfall for the region at 502 mm since April 1, 2013. Livestock producers continue with haying operations, but are experiencing challenges in finishing baling. Frequent showers and heavy dew in the mornings have resulted in slow dry down time. Hay yields in the region vary from 1.3 ton/acre to 3 ton/acre on dryland brome alfalfa stands. Topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as 18 per cent surplus, 78 per cent adequate and four per cent short. Hay land and pasture moisture is rated as 13 per cent surplus, 80 per cent adequate and seven per cent short. Crop district 1A is reporting 39 per cent and 25 per cent of cropland and hay acres, respectively, to have surplus topsoil moisture. There was some crop damage due to insects, flooding and disease. Bertha armyworm and grasshoppers are causing the majority of insect damage. Producers are also busy haying and getting ready for harvest. Elsewhere in the province, challenges with swath dry down and baling continue for livestock producers. Haying progress varies according to rain showers. The estimated average hay yields on dry land are reported as 1.6 tons per acre (alfalfa and alfalfa/brome hay), 1.3 tons per acre (other tame hay), 1.3 tons per acre (wild hay) and 2 tons per acre (greenfeed). On irrigated land, the estimated average hay yields are 2.8 tons per acre (alfalfa and alfalfa/brome hay), 1 ton per acre (other tame hay), and 4.2 tons per acre (greenfeed). Hay yields on dry land as well as on irrigated land are on par with the five year average. The majority of crops are filling, with crops in some areas podding and finishing flowering. Most areas of the province recorded rain last week ranging from trace to 58 mm. Insects and disease caused some crop damage. Across the province, topsoil moisture on crop land is rated as five per cent surplus, 81 per cent adequate, 13 per cent short and one per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as three per cent surplus, 79 per cent adequate, 17 per cent short and one per cent very short.

Dollars For Senior Care

The Estevan Antique Auto Club donated $2,000 to the Hearthstone Foundation on Aug. 15. The money came from their spring flea market. Accepting the cheque on behalf of Hearthstone was chairman Don Kindopp (second from left) and Tania Andrist, Hearthstone’s communications co-ordinator. Making the presentation were Marv Paulson (left) and Barrie Murray. The presentation was made in the A&W parking lot. The club will be staging an antique auto display at A&W on Aug. 22 in support of that company’s annual contribution to muscular dystrophy research. The car club will be staging their fall flea market in the Wylie-Mitchell Building in Estevan Sept. 21.

Council delays decision on housing request be located at the rear of the building. He added the residence would add to the city’s rental stock and recommended the permit be made as long as the owners comply with all building and fire codes. In his comments, city manager Jim Puffalt disagreed with Bjorge, noting that although Estevan does have a housing shortage, the City has not permitted residences on the main level of commercial buildings in the past and should continue to follow the practice “to ensure a clear separation of non-compatible uses. As well, there may be some issues with the use of the building.” The report noted other City division managers as well as fellow downtown businesses, expressed concerns about the proposal. One respondent noted there are concerns about the types of activities taking place at the business while another felt that residential suites should be on the second floor of buildings to preserve the “charm” of the downtown area.

City council has postponed a decision for a discretionary use permit made by a downtown business that would like to set up a residence in their premises. The request, which was made by Tranquility Spa and Massage according to information from the City, would clear the way for a residential suite to be located in the rear portion of what is a single-story commercial building, if approved. Because the building in question, which is located on the 1200 block of Fourth Street, is zoned for commercial purposes, council would have to approve any changes. First reading of the bylaw request was made earlier this summer but council said until they hear a report from Fire Chief Ron Tocker, they would not make a final decision. In his report to council, Eric Bjorge, a development planner in the land development services division, noted the business would continue to operate in the front of the building while the residence would

RM council and industrial partners respond to transloading concerns Questions and concerns were asked and answered while others remain to be addressed after a resident in the RM of Estevan confronted the RM council last Wednesday morning. Bob Story also had several questions for Millennium Stimulation Services and the Long Creek Railway corporation, the company that operates a short line rail service from the outskirts of Estevan. Story approached council during their open session, seeking answers to the concerns he had outlined in a letter to the local rural municipality earlier. In emphatic fashion, Story reiterated the six major concerns he had listed in his letter, noting that he was opposed to the establishment of a sand transloading facility on RM land that he said was just too close to his residence, about 500 feet. Story said the noise level of the locomotives that are used to pick up the sand for oilfield fracking practices is just too loud. He also wanted to get information regarding the off-loading process that would be used, dust control methods, communication with local residents, road conditions and loading frequencies. Dean Hillenga, chief operating officer for Millennium and Ron Deringer, district manager for the same company, provided responses as did Doug Ashworth, representing the Long Creek rail company. The Millennium representatives assured Story the loading process involved an electric loader to carry the product into a 186-foot silo and that gravity loading would take over from that point. A pneumatic system is being deployed for dust control. Ashworth said the locomotive, when not in use, will be in a shed well-removed from the Story residence. Since the business pace will dictate the number of trips trucks and rail cars will make daily, Deringer later told The Mercury, the expectation was for between two and six truckloads per working day for delivery of product to the silo. RM Reeve Kelly Lafrentz assured Story that the council had taken the proper public notification steps prior to moving forward with the proposal and that his response was the only negative reaction to the project to date. Story countered that he felt the business simply was too intrusive, that it would disrupt residential well being in the RM and that “the RM needs some quiet spots, it’s a selling feature for you, but maybe you’re just trying to bring in the money.” Hillenga and Deringer said similar transloading facilities are located in North Dakota and they too, are fairly close to residences and don’t appear to be causing grief. However, they added, they would be willing to provide more information regarding acceptable noise levels and dust control. “My suggestion is that Millenium hit the road and find a rural property to use,” said Story. Lafrentz reminded Story that the property in question is in an industrial subdivision and that perhaps he was assuming some things that just weren’t going to become a reality. Hillenga said the loading plant will be creating less noise than any grain handling program and the noisiest part of the operation will be the dust compression unit. Speaking from experience, he said it was difficult to hear them from 40 feet. “But we’ll do more research on decibel levels, what’s acceptable and what isn’t and we’re willing to do more if necessary,” said Hillenga. Ashworth said Long Creek’s plan is to only operate the locomotive during traditional

13084MM00

working hours between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. The rest of the time the locomotive will be deployed elsewhere along the line, or will be housed. He said last winter the locomotive was left in an idling state on a few evenings for about a month during the early winter before the shed was built. “We don’t want to disturb neighbours, we will be willing to address any perceived problems,” said Hillenga. Deringer said there might be an occasional night load, but that would not be a normal practice. As far as rail car movement was concerned, Ashworth noted that this is done with an electric cable and with rail cars moving only one direction, the process will be quieter than normal traffic movement. Discussions regarding the sad state of local highways then cropped up, with Ashworth reminding everyone that the process was taking pressure off the already abused local grid and highway system. As the discussion wound down, Lafrentz said councillors would engage in further discussion and would respond to Story in writing, as he requested. In a lighter moment of the conversation that was rather tense at times, councillor Dennis Blackburn asked whether Long Creek could arrange for a passenger car to be added to their fleet so that some local residents might be able to move around while avoiding the bad highways. Lafrentz noted that property owners cost share dust control in the industrial areas of the RM. Deringer later told The Mercury Millennium hoped to have the concerns addressed and that the transloading facility could be operational by mid-December with council’s approval and if the weather co-operated and they were able to find a good labour force to complete construction. He said the expectations would be for the loading and dispatching of up to 40 rail cars of sand per month. He said the company will investigate the decibel level questions and will take that and any further information required back to council in the near future. In the meantime the company is moving ahead with the construction of an office in Estevan. In other council business, the RM said they still have no decision made on a 260person man camp suggested for the outskirts of Estevan. The Reeve said there had been some opposition raised to the proposal. Lafrentz said that in the previous agreement with another company, the builders and operators of the camp would be responsible for security, water and waste disposal and reasonable roads and traffic patterns in and out of the camp.

Council Briefs

News and notes from the August 14 regular meeting of Estevan city council Council unanimously approved a community events permit for a road hockey tournament being held on Aug. 24 in the parking lot of the Days Inn. Event organizers are looking to have a beer gardens as part of the tournament and needed approval from the City in order to get a liquor permit from the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Association. • • • • • •  Council approved

spending $15,000 to conduct preliminary design work for a new athletics and track facility on the grounds of the Estevan Comprehensive School. The facilities would be required if the bid to bring the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games to Estevan is successful. However it was noted by councillors Kevin Smith and Greg Hoffort, who are the two City representatives on the committee, that even if Estevan

does not get the games, they would still like it built as there are currently no track and field facilities in Estevan. • • • • • • In his report, City manager Jim Puffalt said the new curbside garbage collection system for areas outside of the Pleasantdale Subdivision has been working well since it began earlier this month. Puffalt said in the first week there was 80 to 90 per cent compliance from

residents. He also noted that curbside recycling will begin on Sept. 2 in the Pleasantdale area. The program will then be rolled out to the rest of the city in October. • • • • • • Council approved a number of new and updated human resources policies at the meeting. Among the topics included in the policies were diversity in the workplace, corrective discipline, employee attendance, City vehicle usage and

social media. • • • • • • After a slow start to the year, the City has truly gained some momentum on the building permits front. According to the report for July, 21 permits, which had a combined value of $8.34 million were issued. That is well ahead of 2012 when they only had $112,000 worth of permits issued in July. For the year, the City has now issued 78 permits.

The value of those permits is now up to almost $23 million compared to $19.44 million at the same time last year. Commercial activity accounted for much of July’s total as $5.62 million in permits were issued. There were also two multi-family permits issued with a combined value of $1.86 million. The report also noted those two multi-family buildings will have a combined 35 units in them.

Day care co-operative holds open house The Estevan Day Care Co-operative held an open house event at their location just off Souris Avenue (Highway 47 north) on Sunday. The event was held to allow prospective families an opportunity to explore the facilities with their children between 2 and 4 p.m. “We’re open on a daily basis from 6:30 a.m. until 6 p.m., said Shawna Judd, programming director. The centre is licensed for up to 90 youngsters be-

tween the ages of six weeks and 12 years. Administrative director, Nikki Schreiner said the centre currently has a full complement of 22 employees as care givers and other services. She said at one point last year they were forced to reduce the enrolment due to the fact they didn’t have all care giving positions filled, but that was only a temporary situation. The centre has always had a healthy waiting list, so the two women

and the co-operative’s board members are dedicated to keeping the positions, most of them full-time employment, filled. “We have taken one of our two outdoor playground areas off service temporarily while we convert it to a wheelchair accessible site,” said Judd. The other outdoor playground was busy on Sunday as was the upper level of the two-floor centre that formerly served as the Knights of Columbus Hall and has now been renovated and refurbished to accom-

modate an ambitious day care program. “The staff we have here today are volunteering their time, which we really appreciate,” said Schreiner. “We have well trained, certified staffers,” she added. Judd said the centre was conducting a series of raffles and auctions, thanks to donations from local businesses, in an effort to raise additional funds to better equip both playgrounds and to replace aging playground items.

Lily Salamon works away at some designer play dough during her visit to the Estevan Day Care Cooperative centre on Sunday.

Estevan Day Care Co-operative staff member Maribel Cabezudo applies an artistic touch to a young face as part of the open house activities.

“I feel like we have pedal to the metal ever since we started construction.”

— Mike Reinheller

Trimount Developments held a grand opening for their new North Point and Fairview Villas projects Thursday. From left to right: Terry Germain, Century 21; Mike Reinheller, Trimount; Lynn Chipley, Century 21 and Kevin Smith of the City of Estevan.

Trimount unveils new projects From sitting in a barren field to unveiling their latest in a string of successful housing projects, it’s fair to say the last three years have been kind to Trimount Developments. The company held a grand opening Thursday for the North Point condominium project and Fairview Villas, a collection of duplexes. Both projects are located in the Dominion Heights subdivision, an area that Trimount has been developing for just over a year. Mike Reinheller, who is one of three partners in Trimount, said they are excited about the new project and the public reaction as six of the 39 condos in the first phase of North Point are already sold. “I really get the sense that people don’t about it

yet,” said Reinheller who added that four of the 16 duplexes they plan to build have also been spoken for. “People like the duplexes. We found that once we did 117 condo units (at Petterson Point) we kind of saturated the market for that year. There is pent up demand for single family and we did our best to satisfy that for a bit and now we are getting back into the higher density condominiums and duplexes.” Reinheller said he expects the first duplexes to be ready by February while work on the first phase of North Point will start in September with a late April, early May finish date. Trimount first entered the Estevan market with their Petterson Point condo development in the Trojan subdivision. They further

cemented their presence in Estevan after purchasing 86 acres of land in the Dominion Heights area. When fully built out, Reinheller said 700 residences will have been created between the single family lots and multi-family developments. “I feel like we have pedal to the metal ever since we started construction,” he said. “As quick as we can build them, we are selling them. The big thing that we had to build with Estevan was respect and trust. I feel like we have gotten that with the community and we just have to maintain it and keep doing what we say we are going to do.” Reinheller said Trimount also has plans to develop a park in the Dominion Heights area that will include a pathway system, spray park and picnic area. “It will be a nice central location for families to come and enjoy.”

Outdoor activities means more responses for police An alert member of the Estevan Police Service (EPS) noted some erratic driving activities by the operator of a vehicle on Estevan streets on the night of Aug. 13. The vehicle was stopped and after the driver displayed signs of impairment, a roadside breathalyzer examination was conducted and the driver provided readings that indicated impairment. The male driver was subsequently charged with impaired driving and driving while his blood-alcohol content was over .08 per cent. He will appear in court at a later date. EPS received a call prompted by the local Report Impaired Drivers (RID) campaign later that same evening. The caller said the vehicle under observation had been swerving on the road and doing some tailgating of other vehicles. The suspect vehicle was located by police, who determined the female driver had been consuming alcohol and was showing signs of impairment. A roadside examination led to the issuing of a 24-hour driving suspension. Police also received a series of phone calls from a woman who they finally

found in a grassy area of the city in a very intoxicated condition. The woman was arrested and charged with being intoxicated in public and was lodged in cells until sober. EPS members also set up an investigation into a possible bullying incident following a complaint registered with them regarding invasive Twitter account use. On Aug. 16 EPS members stopped a vehicle after noticing that it was being driven in an erratic fashion. The male driver was charged with impaired driving and driving while over .08 and has a September court date. On Aug. 17, EPS members were called to the south side of the city in reaction to a report of an unwanted male attempting to gain access to a residence. The man fled the scene prior to police arrival, but a short time after this event, police received another call from the same location indicating that the man had returned and was again trying to gain access to the home. This time police found the man a short distance from the scene as he was attempting to drive away. Police arrested him and

charged him with trespassing. The subject refused to provide a sample for a breathalyzer examination, so he was charged accordingly. He was also charged for having open liquor in a vehicle and operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s licence. A 20-year-old Estevan woman was transported to hospital on the night of Aug. 17 following police investigation into an assault that occurred on the city’s north side. The woman suffered minor injuries while the man involved in the incident did not suffer any injuries. Police have opened an investigation

into the matter. Another assault complaint came from the central part of the city a short time after the previous incident. The suspect in this case had fled the scene

RCMP investigating fuel theft and vandalism incidents The Estevan detachment of the RCMP are seeking further information to assist them with a pair of investigations regarding incidents that occurred in Lampman and an area near Benson. Police said that some time between 6 p.m. Aug. 3 and 6 p.m. Aug. 4, vandals broke into a storage shed at the Lampman School. Using cans of spray paint that were found inside, the vandals defaced the school and some of the surrounding structures with graffiti. It was also noted that some picnic tables at the rear of the school were also damaged or destroyed. The second event occurred at around 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 14 when a dark coloured Dodge pickup truck was seen parked in a farm yard near Benson. A large volume of diesel fuel was located

at the farm site. Witnesses said a tall blonde haired woman was observed getting out of the driver’s side of the truck with a jerry can in her possession. By the time the observers determined that her actions were, in fact, a theft, the truck had left the scene. A subsequent check at the storage tank revealed that 132 litres of diesel fuel had been removed. The RCMP have sent out a reminder to rural residents to lock up or disconnect the power to their fuel pumps when they are not in use. Anyone with information regarding either of these crimes is asked to contact the Estevan detachment at 306-637-4400 or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

prior to police arrival but the incident remains under investigation. Due to the fact there were several outdoor public functions underway on Aug. 17, EPS members were engaged in a number of stopand-check procedures. By paying even more serious attention to these matters, police ended up issuing charges for six alcoholrelated violations, eight traffic offences and one charge for possession of a controlled substance. These charges were all laid within a two-hour time span. EPS members also came across a group of young people consuming alcohol in a city play park. While dealing with the matter, police suspected that one of the young people was supplying them with a false name and birth date. It was confirmed later that

this was case so the male youth was the arrested and lodged in cells and charged with an alcohol offence as well as for obstruction of a police officer. He now has a September court date. On the night of Aug. 18, EPS members attended to a local lounge in response to a report of a fight in progress. The people involved in the fracas were located and the matter remains under investigation. On the night of Aug. 19, EPS were asked to investigate a vandalism incident that occurred in the 100 block of Second Street where it was revealed that a car had been damaged through keying. EPS members also report that they ended up responding to an unusually high number of false alarms throughout the city on Aug. 19.

“The offence struggled a bit with the loss of Levi. He’s one of the top running backs in the province. It’s kinda like losing Walter Payton.”

SummeR Bike cLeARAnce

— Estevan Steelers head coach Phil Zajac on losing running back Levi Pick on the first play of a 46-0 loss in their season opener on Monday.

Estevan is one of eight finalists in the Richardson Pioneer Rider Nation Community Celebration contest. If selected as a winner, the city could receive either $50,000 or $25,000 to be put toward work being done to restore Dana Quewezance Memorial Field, seen above.

Estevan a finalist to get field funds Bid by Woodlawn group among eight contest finalists The committee working to restore Dana Quewezance Memorial Field is hoping the project will receive needed funds through a contest for the second time. Estevan was named one of eight finalists around the province in the Richardson Pioneer Rider Nation Community Celebration on Saturday. Of the finalists, three communities will receive money for their cause, with the winner getting $50,000 and two runner-ups being awarded $25,000 each. The top three will be chosen by fan voting. The competition, which involves Richardson Pioneer, the Saskatchewan

Roughriders and the 101st Grey Cup Festival committee, is aimed at helping other communities share in the Grey Cup experience. Estevan’s bid was submitted by the Woodlawn Athletic Park committee, with the funds going toward the continued restoration of that part of the Woodlawn Regional Park, if chosen as a winner. The other finalists are Assiniboia, Moosomin, Whitewood, Dalmeny, Davidson, Leroy and Unity. Wanda Harron, a coach and board member with Estevan Minor Football, who was involved in making the submission, said the process was “very, very similar” to

that of TSN’s Kraft Celebration Tour, which Estevan won a stop on in 2011, along with $25,000 for the field. Harron also submitted that bid. Estevan’s submission included an essay about the field and the flooding it endured in 2011, and the ongoing plans to revitalize the area as part of the Woodlawn Athletic Park Restoration Project. It also featured photos of the field after the flooding and, more recently, during restoration work. “It wasn’t necessarily just sports, they wanted to see how the whole community could get involved in your project,” said Harron. “We involved the football/

soccer field, the ball diamonds, how the committee wants to get better parking and a playground down there. We submitted pictures of the grand re-opening, and showed all aspects of who could use that park.” The essay submission included details of the cleanup effort and the work that still needs to be done. “The field had the irrigation system installed and sod was laid late last fall. The restoration of buildings like the locker rooms, concession and announcer’s booth continues. Many, many hours have been spent re-sheeting and painting the interiors of these buildings by our volunteers. The concession is in

need of new cupboards and appliances. There’s electrical and plumbing work yet to be done,” the submission notes. “We need to continue the development of the project. Primarily, funds would pay for lighting installation, improvements such as a picnic area, fencing, more sod, a children’s play area, grass and upgrades to the ball diamond, including shale and fencing. And of course, help cover the costs of the current projects. All these projects total well over $200,000.” Harron said that submitting a bid for the contest is a good way to try to get money required to finish the

project, without again putting the squeeze on people and corporations that already donate to a variety of causes on a regular basis. “The community’s been so good to us that personally, I always hate going back to the well and asking for more money. If you can take the initiative and do something like this by having the whole community get involved in voting every day…” P e o p l e c a n v o t e o n ce p er d ay a t www.101greycupfestival. ca/vote. The voting period closes on Sept. 11, with the winners being announced on Sept. 14 during the Riders’ home game against the Toronto Argonauts.

Steelers lose Pick in season-opening defeat Bantam club fails to get on the board against Stampeders They lost arguably their best player on their first play of the game, and it didn’t get any better from there for the Estevan Lions Club Steelers on Monday night. The bantam football club fell 46-0 to the Regina Stampeders in the Queen City in their season opener. Monday’s loss was part of a rough start to the season for Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football, with the atom Miners having lost 36-0 to the Regina Bombers on Sunday. For the Steelers, star running back Levi Pick went down with a twisted ankle on the team’s first play after rushing for 17 yards. “The offence struggled a bit with the loss of Levi. He’s one of the top running backs in the province. It’s kinda like losing Walter Payton,” said Steelers head coach Phil Zajac. “The offence struggled a bit, but it’s nothing that can’t be fixed. What I told the kids is that nobody quit. We played

hard all the way through the game.” Pick is considered day-to-day as the Steelers prepare for Saturday’s home opener against the Regina Renegades. The 5 p.m. tilt is part of Football Day in Estevan at Dana Quewezance Memorial Field. Zajac said the Steelers particularly struggled in the first half as they adjusted to new teammates. “It was new, you know, we’re a new team, we haven’t played together, so you’re getting to know your teammates. I don’t think the score really reflects the game. Did we score a touchdown? No. We had lots of good things. We blocked five extra points, we blocked two punts, we had great plays by a lot of veterans.” Zajac said that with the Stampeders being a new entry in Regina Minor Football this year, he wasn’t sure what to expect from them.

“I figured it was going to be one way or the other. I didn’t think it would be a close game. The Stampeders are a new team that we’ve never played before, so we didn’t know anything about them. I thought we were going to blow them out or they were going to blow us out, and unfortunately it was them.” After a humbling start to the year, Zajac said there is plenty to work on in practice this week. “On offence, we’re going to work on execution, we’re going to work on our pass blocking. Defensively, they didn’t get a bunch of yards on us, but big plays, they probably had five big plays for touchdowns. For a young team, that’s something that I anticipated, something I talked about that we couldn’t let happen. It just makes it too easy. We’re going to work on tightening up the defence, just tightening up our game in general.”

Committee organized and ready for 2016 Sask. Games bid

With a motto of“We will not fail,”a group of Estevanites is forming a bid they hope will grant the Energy City the chance to host the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games. With everyone on the committee assigned to their roles, the large committee is in the process of finalizing their bid for submission to the provincial Sask. Games council. Committee co-chair Brian Senchuk said he and Brian Smith, his fellow cochair have worked together before, especially with the local football program. “We work very well together. We’re just making sure everybody else is on schedule and helping out wherever we need to be,”said Senchuk. He said in an interview earlier this month that the bid was about 75 per cent complete. They just need to complete the finishing touches and detail work prior to their submission prior to the Oct. 1 deadline. “We have started to write the submission. Our goal is to have it completed roughly by the first week of September,” he said.“(That way) we’re ahead of the game and it gives us time to double check and triple check.” With Senchuk and Smith as the committee cochairs, the rest of the board is rounded out by Greg Hoffort and Kevin Smith, city council reps; Nathan Jesse, city parks; Nathan Puffalt, secretary; Josh LeBlanc and Brian Smith, athletic services; Becky Conly, friend

of the games; Joe Lingelbach, Nathan Puffalt and Lindsay Clark, sports venues; Leanne Boehm, medical services; Sheila Guenther, volunteers; Steve McLellan and Jeff Walters, information and technology; Art Beselt, logistics; Curtis Hack, food services; Brenda Lyons and Blair Ullrich, marketing and promotions; Michel Cyrenne, ceremonies and protocol; and Amber Andersen, cultural events. The games manager is to be filled at a later date, and administration and finance is vacant. The whole group meets together once a month and there are several other meetings between the co-chairs and the different heads to keep everybody on track and working toward a common goal. They will continue to chip away at the task as they prepare for the final bid submission. “We’re very well on our way, and I have to give full credit to Brian Smith, because he has just been so organized and so motivated, and he has done a real good job for us,” said Senchuk. Once all bids are in, the members of the provincial Sask. Games committee will conduct a sit visit sometime in October to each hopeful city. “We hope to tour them around the city, show them the different venues and meet our committee, and those who would be behind it and responsible to show them that if awarded, they would have the support of the community,” said Senchuk. The next big goal for the committee is getting the

community on board with the Games. The committee will be getting the word across the city of what they want to do in order to host the Games in 2016 and are hoping the community will support the endeavour. LeBlanc said their biggest concern is, of course, completing the bid. After that, their job will be to get the word out to rally community support. “We want everyone to be aware that we’re doing this and that we want it to happen. It’s going to have a huge impact on our community,” he said.

“We want to show them when they do come for a site visit that it’s a community thing. It’s not a few people working to bring something that’s not supported,” added Senchuk. LeBlanc, who shares the athletic services committee role with Smith, said the Estevan Comprehensive School will be used as the headquarters and main campus for the Games. Athletes will be housed in makeshift dormitories, meals will be provided there as well as entertainment, medical services and competition results. “Right now everyone’s

Woodlawn finally ready for football It has been a long two years, but in 2013, Estevan will once again kick off its minor football season at the Dana Quewezance Memorial Field. To celebrate, Estevan Minor Football is hosting a Football Day in Estevan on Aug. 24 as its two teams, the Miners and Steelers, play host to their first home games of the 2013 season. EMF president Steve McLellan said this day is the moment he and the rest of the Estevan football community have been waiting for since the field was washed away due to flooding in 2011. “I think for everybody involved in football from prior to the flood until coming back, it’s finally a bit of closure. It has been a long, long stretch of two years here where we have been displaced,” said McLellan. The past two years have involved a lot of hard work, assessing damage, making the decision to rebuild on the same site, fundraising and finally rebuilding the field almost from scratch. The effort was spurred on in August of 2011 when the TSN Kraft Celebration Tour

rolled through the Energy City thanks to the EMF bid to rebuild the field. McLellan also noted that they had only just finished work at the field in 2011 before the floods hit. “The unfortunate thing, of course, was that we were just comfortably done when the floods hit,” he said regarding the Dana Quewezance Memorial Field in Woodlawn Regional Park. “I know some of us, especially myself and lots of us who have worked there all along with their own blood, sweat and tears getting put back into it, we’re quite excited to return and be back to normal.” The majority of the work has been completed by volunteers and some other labour and equipment has been donated. “This is our final push,” said McLellan, regarding the final detail work that EMF had to complete in time for the pair of home openers. “With the realities of any project, I guess, to be realistic there probably will be some work outstanding,” he added, saying

that there may still be some work to do at the field following the opening of the football season in Estevan. The Football Day in Estevan festivities will kick off at noon, with the Miners taking the field for the first time at Dana Quewezance Memorial Field. The Miners will play against the Regina Cougars in their home opener. “We hope everyone can come out. We’ll have as many festivities going on as we can during the game,”said McLellan, noting 50/50 sales will start at that time. “We’ll hopefully make it just a really fun, welcome back atmosphere there.” Following the Miners’ game, the Saskatchewan Roughriders will take the field … not at Woodlawn Park, but they will square off against the Edmonton Eskimos in Edmonton. That game will be broadcast at the Souris Valley Theatre. “We encourage everyone to head over to that,”said McLellan. There will be a raffle and the theatre’s concession will be open as well as a beer garden.

“It will be a really great atmosphere. It’ll be shown on the big screen so it’ll be as close to being at the Rider game as we’ll probably get in Estevan.” The bantam Steelers will be host to the next game on the day’s docket. They will be up against the Regina Renegades for their home opener. Fireworks will mark the game’s conclusion. That display will mark the beginning of a cabaret, which will be held around the field and surrounding area. Chris Henderson will headline, along with Wonderland. Proceeds from the cabaret and other activities from throughout the day will be split between EMF and the Souris Valley Theatre. McLellan said all funds raised for EMF will go toward the costs incurred for the construction of the Woodlawn field. “It should be a really fun day, and we’re hoping everyone can come out. Towards the end of summer it’ll be a busy day in Estevan, but we’re hoping everyone can stop by for at least some part of the festivities,”added McLellan.

Miners blanked by Bombers in season opener In their season opener on Sunday, the Estevan Sherritt Coal Miners showed some chops defensively but found out they have some work to do on the offensive side of the ball. The atom football club kicked off their season with a 36-0 loss to the Regina Bombers at Leibel Field in the provincial capital. The Bombers scored one touchdown in the first quarter and three more in the second. But the Miners buckled down and shut the door for most of the second half, surrendering one more major in the last minute of the game. Among the highlights defensively for the Miners, they stopped Regina three times in the red zone, including one series where the Bombers had first and goal on the three-yard line. “The defence was on the field for three quarters of the game and they just got plum tuckered out. The offence knows we’ll be better,” said first-year head coach Wanda Harron. It was a tough day for the team’s offence, and Harron said that “the whole game situation was maybe a little overwhelming,” particularly for the first-year players suiting up for their first game ever. “I know we’ve heard the cliche before, but that score is not indicative of how we played. On the offence, I honestly think it was just a lack of polish. In practice against our defence, which I consider to be a really good defence, our offence was gaining yards left, right and centre.” Estevan fumbled the ball three times, and Harron said she believes nerves played a factor. “I would say most of our wide receivers which we were relying on to run plays were brand new,” she added. The Miners’ coaching staff, which includes Steve McLellan as offensive co-ordinator and Kevin Mortenson as defensive co-ordinator, will work in a few new plays in practice this week, as the team prepares for its home opener on Saturday against the Regina Cougars. The game starts at noon. Harron said that on the Bombers’ first touchdown

drive, the Miners were “in place to make tackles,” but weren’t wrapping up the ball carrier. “As soon as they were told very early in the game that you guys have to get in there and wrap, the tackling was darn near perfect for an atom team,” she said. The Miners’ defence did have some trouble with the sweep in a variation of an ongoing issue last season. “Our kids would be there, but as soon as Regina would change direction and go inside quick right away, the kids had a little bit of trouble with the change in direction,” Harron said, noting that the team will work on tackling angles in practice this week. Harron added she was impressed with the team’s conditioning and the leadership shown by some players at a young age.

Elecs football in desperate need of players For the second straight year, the Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs football team is having trouble filling out its roster as the season draws near. After an underwhelming turnout at the team’s spring camp, head coach Mark Schott said he’s hoping to have upwards of 25 players for the first few days of training camp, with that number growing as the school year begins. Training camp begins on Friday, with practice running from 4-6 p.m. following the second of two equipment handouts. Camp continues on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by daily sessions during the week. Equipment will be distributed on Thursday in the team’s locker room from 4-5 p.m., with another session on Friday from 2:30-3:30 p.m. “Anybody that is planning to play football should come out and get properly fitted for equipment,” said Schott, who noted that players need to pay a $200 equipment deposit and a $50 team fee, with the cheques payable to Parents of ECS Football. Players that are hoping to play in the season opener (on Sept. 6 against the A.E. Peacock Tornadoes), they need to be at practice before school starts. It’s very difficult to get a player into our first game if they don’t show up at practice until school starts,” said Schott. Regardless, there is plenty of playing time available, even for those who have not played the sport before, he added. “Anybody that’s concerned that maybe they’ve never played football before and they don’t think they’re going to play, that’s not the case. There’s lots of opportunity,” he said. “Hopefully football is something they will enjoy.” Players from Oxbow, Carnduff, Lampman and Carlyle are eligible to suit up for the Elecs, along with ECS students.

ECS has about 15 players eligible to return from last year, along with a group of graduates from the bantam Steelers, but Schott said it’s tough to pinpoint exact numbers right now. “We had some disappointing numbers at spring camp in terms of returning players, so there’s a lot of uncertainty heading into the season regarding what our numbers will be and exactly what players will be returning. We have a good group coming up from the Steelers team from last year. With the numbers at spring camp, it’s really tough to say what they’re going to be.” The ECS football program has been building momentum since it began in 2009, highlighted by a 2011 season that included two regular season wins and a quarterfinal victory, all coming against Swift Current. But the club went winless last year, and Schott said it’s tough to continue growing with a smaller roster than the other teams in the Moose Jaw High School Football League. “It’s difficult to have success on the field when the numbers are so low, because injuries happen and we just don’t have the depth. A larger roster and more players would definitely produce a better product on the field. To grow the team we have, the numbers we need are a balanced group across grade levels to make sure we grow from year to year,” he said. The Elecs are also looking to round out their coaching staff. “Football coaching experience isn’t a requirement, but it’s encouraged,” Schott said. Anyone interested is asked to contact the head coach at mark.schott@cornerstonesd.ca.

Haselhan, Dougherty compete at Canada Games A pair of local products were among the more than 450 athletes, coaches and staff representing Saskatchewan at the Canada Games this month in Sherbrooke, Que. Lampman’s Shalane Haselhan competed in high jump at the Summer Games, while Estevan’s Wyatt Dougherty was part of the province’s lightweight fours rowing team. Haselhan, a former member of the Estevan Legion Track and Field Club,

tied for ninth in the high jump final on Friday, with her best successful attempt sailing over the bar at 1.60 metres. Haselhan cleared the bar at heights of 1.50, 1.55 and 1.60 before failing to clear 1.65. The University of Regina athlete was competing in her second Games, but was hindered by a severe ankle sprain this year that affected her indoor season and wiped out a lot of training time.

“I kinda figured that I wouldn’t be jumping my best. I knew I had to make my first attempt to get a good placing. I was pretty happy I made my first attempt. I finished about where I thought I would finish,” she said. Haselhan’s personal best is 1.69 metres. With 16 competitors in the event — the maximum allowed in a final — there was no qualifying. Alberta’s Rachel Machin earned gold with a jump of 1.84 metres,

British Columbia’s Emma Kimoto took silver (1.80) and Nova Scotia’s Rebecca Anne Haworth (1.73) was the bronze medallist. Haselhan’s showing tied her with teammate Kennedy Glassford of Wilkie and Mikella Lefebvre-Oatis of Quebec. “I competed against some of the same girls and the people who finished first and second, they have improved a lot. They had really good heights. After that, it was kinda right around the 1.60s range,” Haselhan said. Having participated in the 2009 Games in Prince Edward Island, Haselhan knew what to expect away from competition this time around. “It was a lot more fun. I kinda knew how the bus schedule worked, and I didn’t need to go super early for my event because I knew how long it would take me to get ready.” Haselhan’s sister joined her in Sherbrooke and she said the two enjoyed the off days, spending the down time getting a pedicure, walking around the area, going to a movie, shopping and going to a beach area, among other activities. Dougherty, meanwhile, was a member of the lightweight fours team that finished last of six boats in the final on Friday, posting a time of 6:57.71. The foursome began the Canada Games experience with their heat on Aug. 13, finishing last in a group of four with a time of 6:37.58. However, Dougherty and his teammates rebounded in the repechage later that day, winning the race in a time of 6:52.38 to advance to the final.

Football programs still in fledgling state For the last five years, Estevan’s football programs have been providing another option for kids from atom age to high school to get involved in. In more recent years, they have churned out several players who have made university and junior teams, and played in prestigious provincial events like the Ed Henick Senior Bowl. In order to remain sustainable over the long term, though, Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football and the high school Elecs need to get better on the field. We are seeing this year that it’s hard to recruit enough players to keep teams going. That’s not to say that the loss of the peewee Chargers and the low numbers for the Elecs are due to their struggles on the field, but having teams that win a few games would sure help in attracting kids to play. EMF did a great job of building a minor football system from scratch, a testament to the work ethic of parents and coaches, especially considering most of them had never coached football before. The people involved with the organization have come through again in the last year, pitching in to ensure football could return to Woodlawn for this season after the field down there was devastated by the 2011 floods. That’s a great off-field success story.

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out But on-field success is a big component in maintaining a sustainable feeder system, something that becomes much harder when you don’t have a peewee team for your atom players to jump to. A major factor in the struggles of EMF’s teams has been that Estevan simply doesn’t have the resources that Regina’s football teams do, and the other out of town teams, Weyburn and Yorkton, have had their programs in place much longer. So it’s a very slow process when you start from scratch. It’s critical that resources are available for EMF’s coaches: clinics and other activities to help them get better at what they do in a sport they haven’t been involved with for all that long.

The better our coaches are, the better our teams will be. At the high school level, the Elecs are perennially struggling with low player turnout, and that makes it very hard to win, regardless of how good your coaches and players are. The Elecs had a breakthrough season in 2011, with three wins over the Swift Current Colts, including one in the quarter-final. But last year, they just weren’t at the level of the other six teams in the Moose Jaw High School Football League. A team that can hold its own could go a long way toward getting more players out, but that’s a tall order with a small roster. It’s a vicious circle for ECS. I’m not a football coach, and I don’t have solutions, but it probably won’t get any easier to field full rosters in every age group if our teams don’t see results. Along with the necessary focus on making sure kids have fun, Estevan’s teams also need to be focused on constant improvement leading to wins. Contact Josh Lewis at 306-634-2654 or sports@ estevanmercury.ca. Any mistakes in his stories this week can be blamed solely on the fact that he just returned from vacation.

Not easy to make Roughrider fans happy Rod Pedersen Rider Insider As long as I live, I’ll never figure out Rider fans. At least, a very large portion of them. The Saskatchewan Roughriders improved to a CFL-best 6-1 on Saturday afternoon with a last-second 24-21 victory over the Montreal Alouettes before a sold-out crowd of 40,637 at Mosaic Stadium. Kicker Chris Milo hit a gamewinning 34-yard field goal with no time left before the third-highest attended regular season game in Roughrider history. All should be good, right? Wrong. Had the Riders lost the game, and to be honest, it really looked like they would when the team went down 21-14 with less than two minutes remaining, I was planning to head straight home afterwards to avoid the wrath of the Rider Nation on the streets of the Queen City. However, since the football gods smiled on the Green & White and afforded them the comeback victory, I thought I’d venture out to a local watering hole to join the celebrations.

However, the smoke had barely cleared from the postgame fireworks when the barrage of negativity started flowing in. “That was the worst football game I’ve ever seen,” one local TV reporter said in the parking lot outside the stadium.

I suppose I could give him that. It was an unexpectedly low-scoring contest in which the Riders held a narrow 8-7 lead at the halftime break.  The game won’t be shown on ESPN Classic anytime soon, and I’ll admit I tried to watch the game a second time on Sunday evening but it was just too painful. At best, it was a cure for insomnia. However, things certainly heated up in the second half and the game was tied 11-11 going into the fourth quarter. And it was a war in the trenches

on a steamy August afternoon, with stars from both teams leaving the game with injury. For Montreal, it was quarterback Anthony Calvillo and for the Riders, it was wide receiver Rob Bagg. At press time, the severity of their injuries wasn’t known. The Riders were 12-point favourites heading into the game but the proud Alouettes, and backup quarterback Josh Neiswander, gave the Green Guys all they could handle in the latest chapter of their simmering rivalry, which

goes back to two Montreal wins in the 2009 and 2010 Grey Cups. It turned out to be a thriller, in a case of last possession wins. The game may have been sloppy, but the Riders proved to be the

team that made the fewest mistakes and scrapped back to get the victory. Quarterback Darian Durant threw a 65-yard touchdown strike to Taj Smith to tie the game in the dying moments Riders ⇢ B6

Riders improve record to 6-1 ⇢ B6 and then on the last-minute drive, Durant got his team into position for the game-winning field goal. Afterwards, in the watering hole, fans were shaking their heads over and over at returner Jock Sanders’ two fumbles, and another from Durant, which looked at times like they might cost the team the game. Heck, they shouldn’t have won. Saskatchewan lost the turnover battle (4-3) as well as time-of-possession, but it’s a 60-minute game and the Riders did just enough to be the better team

but kept the games close enough so that they could win it in the end like a Hollywood movie script. However, that’s just not going to happen. Perhaps Chris Milo put it best after the game. “Huge thank you to all the 40,000+ at Mosaic today!” Milo wrote on Twitter. “Place was rockin’! Thank you for your endless support! Wasn’t pretty but a win is a win!” Indeed it is.  And 6-1 looks pretty good to me.

on that Saturday afternoon. “Against Calgary or B.C., they would have gotten slaughtered,” huffed one fan afterwards while another chirped, “They never would have won if Calvillo had stayed in the game.” I just smiled and nodded. Earlier in the season one fan complained that the games weren’t that entertaining because the Riders were blowing teams out week after week. Are you kidding me? Actually, I think I’ve figured it out. It appears the Rider Nation would prefer if their team played error-free, perfect football

— Rebecca Foord

A memorable trip for Foord that combined music, history and culture By Norm Park Of The Mercury It was a memorable trip on several levels as far as Rebecca Foord saw it. A journey through several European communities that most tourists and travellers would never include on a vacation schedule delighted the 85 members of the University of Saskatchewan Winds Orchestra and the Greystone Singers this

performance in spite of some significant jet lag, Foord said. “ We p l a y e d i n a n old cathedral theatre that was just fabulous. The acoustics were amazing, so much better than the university’s rehearsal hall we’re used to,” she said. The festival attracts a lot of people even though it’s staged in a relatively small community. She said the audience was very attentive and knowledgeable

classes didn’t mesh very well on the schedule so she dropped music there and only picked it up again as an interest when she returned to Saskatchewan. Most of the students in the orchestra are music majors, so she said she had to work hard to catch up with them. She said she’s improved her playing skills substantially since re-dedicating herself to the instrument. “Our repertoire for

In fact, Foord, a clarinetist with the orchestra, was one of three former Estevan students on the tour. Jan Michael Bourgeois is a percussionist with the orchestra, while

and the U of S orchestra went on stage later on in the day, but there was still a good number of music lovers in attendance. They were followed by the University of Georgia and then University of

“The choir had a public performance in Switzerland and when we got to Heidelberg in Germany, we played in the city square at suppertime. It was fun, playing for people as they dined in the outdoor restaurants.” Aubree Bangsund is a member of the Greystone Singers. The 10-day whirlwind tour saw the troupe leave Saskatoon for Toronto and on to Zurich, Switzerland on July 7 and 8. The first stop on the musical junket was the Jungfrau concert where the orchestra and choir got together for a pretty strong

Louisville orchestras with Louisville’s effort being very impressive, she said. Foord, who has earned a political science degree from the University after also attending the University of Ottawa for two years, is now pursuing a law degree. She said while in Ottawa she had started working on a degree in music, but the

competition was mostly Canadian. The audience loved our RCMP March. We also played the Maple Leaf Forever and some Canadian student compositions, she said. The orchestra, under the direction of Darrin Ohlerking and the choir, directed by Gerald Lagner, held a number of rehearsals before heading overseas and they arranged one concert as a team prior to their departure. “The choir had a public performance in Switzerland and when we got to Heidelberg in Germany, we played in the city square at suppertime. It was fun, playing for people as they dined in the outdoor restaurants.” A quick tour led them on to the Netherlands, where they arrived at NATO headquarters and met many Canadian troops and their families who were stationed there. “It was one of those amazing things in your life. To play for Canadians doing military service was a privilege. They had a big barbecue set up for us and we joined them and their families. I heard some great stories. Many of them had been deployed to Afghanistan, so we heard about that. I got to meet their children who take a

Canadian curriculum in the military school and then share language classes with local kids. It was a small audience, but they were very appreciative and we certainly appreciated them.” In Kerkrade, Netherlands the orchestra and choir were entered in the World Music Contest, an event that is staged only once every four years. They were scheduled late in the program so they managed a quick rehearsal and played, just before midnight. “We don’t know what score we got, we don’t get that until much later on. There were five orchestras in the competition on that first day when we played. I think there would be 15 to 20 in total.” The touring wrapped up in Belgium, where the troupe got to see the sights and didn’t need to arrange for any more concerts. The only glitch happened near the end when one of their buses was broken into and some electronic equipment was stolen along with a few passports. The orchestra members without passports had to do some scrambling to get temporary papers from Canadian officials so they could return home with the rest of the members. That was the only negative experience in the whole adventure. “Learning how others live, learning about the cultures, getting an opportunity to visit with people in the smaller communities was great because when we wandered around the town, everyone would know who we were.” In Belgium, it got a little easier from a language perspective since several orchestra and choir members are comfortable speaking French, including Foord. The orchestra even had a few members who spoke German, so they came in handy and certainly helped the guides doing some translation work. When they made it to Ath, Belgium, Foord said she had arranged to meet up with a Belgian family she had stayed with while she was a Rotary International exchange student when she was in Grade 11 at ECS. “ We h a d a g o o d laugh when we got together and they were so surprised to see and hear

For Rebecca Foord, the trip wasa good European musical experience. how my French had improved. They said I was terrible at French when I was there back then, but now it seemed pretty comfortable,” she said with a laugh. The Debraekaleer family had a great reunion experience with Foord. “It was six years ago or more and you leave the family and you think you’ll probably never ever see them again. I had kept in contact with their daughter on Facebook so when we got over to Europe they followed our itinerary and we met up again and it was so nice to see them again. We went to the fair, just like we had done when I was with them back then. Their daughter, who was living in Brussels showed up too. It was really cool.

And with my French being so much better, that made it an even better reunion.” Foord said another poignant moment for the Canadian students arrived when they visited the Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery while they were in the Netherlands. A U of S orchestra member played the Last Post and the students observed a minute of silence in tribute. They then visited the gravesites with some quiet reflections. “Needless to say, there weren’t any dry eyes there that day,” she said. The trip back was efficient and quick, leaving the members plenty of time to enjoy the rest of their summer and prepare for another busy year on campus.

Estevan Mercury

Paley duo got the kids bouncing in the library

They’ve been doing gigs for kids for over 30 years and it definitely showed in their professionalism and connection with the youngsters. Lee and Sandy Paley share songs with children and they can do it in intimate settings such as the Estevan Public Library’s lounge area, or in large stadiums. “We really love the more intimate environments though. It means we can get up close with the kids,” said Sandy just prior to the couple’s launching into one of their signature opening activity songs involving green jelly beans. About 25 youngsters clapped, clanged and banged away with the Paleys last Wednesday afternoon in the sun-filled library setting. The Paleys are best known for their longrunning television show Ballooner Landing, a set they share with their dog Do-Good, a shy pink parrot named Prudence and the anything but shy flea, Tex Critter. The winner of the Can-Pro Gold Award for best Canadian, produced

children’s series, Ballooner Landing aired for 15 years on various networks including YTV, CBC and Global as well as on PBS and Kidztime in the United States. They have also made appearances on Treehouse and Sesame Street. The couple have written and recorded over 200 action songs contained on 10 CDs and DVDs, all from their Ballooner series. Their songs, printed in music books, including their well known Don’t Get Peanut Butter in the Strawberry Jam and Cow’s Woc Backward, are now published in textbooks and distributed by Pearson Education of New Jersey. The two say they love children and believe childhood is just too short, so they encourage families to play, laugh and sing together to focus on the positive message of caring, friendship and love. “ A s w e a l l k n o w, when children are happy they play well together and find it easier to learn,” they said. The Paleys, along with their family, live in Calgary.

Upcoming motorcycle runs will raise funds for good causes

A couple of important motorcycle rides are once again being arranged for local bike enthusiasts who will take to the highways in southeast Saskatchewan while raising funds for good causes. The first ride is for female motorcyclists only with the Estevan Prairie Winds, the female bike club, arranging their 12th annual fundraising run on Sunday, Aug. 25 starting at 2 p.m. from the leisure centre following a one-hour registration period.

The second run is for all riders and it will depart from the Estevan McDonalds restaurant for the 15th annual Ronald McDonald House run on Sunday, Sept. 8. This route will take riders from Estevan up to Stoughton via Lampman and Arcola. Pam Currie, one of the co-ordinators for both events, said the Prairie Winds girls started their fundraising fun ride several years ago as a good way to get women interested in motorcycles and the fun that can be achieved by riding, especially if the weather is good. The friendships forged are solid and each year some worthwhile organization is assisted through

Currie said this event attracts riders from as far away as Carlyle and Weyburn as well as locals. The registration fee of $20 goes to Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon. The riders leave the local McDonalds parking lot after registering, around 3 p.m. and make their way to Stoughton via Lampman and Arcola and stop for a beef on a bun at Crossroads Inn in Stoughton. There is a small fee for the lunch, which is then traditionally donated back to the cause by that ownership group so the money can be added to the club’s donation. “It’s a fun time and we invite everyone to join in,” said Currie.

The executive decides each year who or what group will get the donation,” said Currie. The registration fee is a simple cash donation to the cause, she said, and usually the 25 to 35 riders the event attracts are pretty generous. The registration fee and pledges for the Ronald McDonald House run will net around $3,000, said Currie, if the weather remains good.

Oil and natural gas Crown land sales net over $15 million Interest remains strong in the Saskatchewan oil patch, especially in the southeast sector. This was evident in the results posted from the latest sale of Crown petroleum and natural gas rights by the provincial government on Aug. 12. The sale of land, which takes place every two months, saw the August sale generate $15,053,899.37 for provincial coffers compared with $9.66 million that was realized in the previous sale held in June. The big reason for the healthy increase in income had much to do with the fact there were additional hectares of oil-producing lands made available for bids this time around, including four exploratory licences. All four were picked up at a total price of just over $2.01 million. The average price paid per hectare was pretty consistent with the June payments, coming in at $652.02 per hectare compared with $653.64 per hectare in June. In most of the sales over the past four years, the southeast area of the province gains the most favour among the buyers and the Aug. 12 sale was no exception. The total receipts in the Estevan-Weyburn area were $11.084 million, an average of over $1,078 per hectare. This compares with the $7.88 million that was spent in June with an average price of over $810 per hectare. The three exploratory licences for sale in the southeast sold for just under $2 million while 54 of the 69 lease parcels captured a further $9.16 million. The top purchaser of land in the province was Scott Land & Lease Ltd. who spent $2.44 million in acquiring seven lease parcels and one exploration licence. The top price paid for a single licence was $1.674 million paid by Scott Land & Lease for a 1.36 hectare block located next to the Benson Midale Beds Oil Pool, 22 kilometres north of Estevan. Mammoth Land Services Ltd., paid the highest amount per hectare in the sale when they spent $5,617 per hectare for 64.75 hectares in a parcel located two kilometers east of the Bench Shaunavon Oil Pool, 22 kilometres south of Gull Lake. Three oil shale special exploratory permits located near Hudson Bay were acquired by Canshale Corp., with work commitment bids totaling just under $4.61 million. Gas prone area attracted bids of just over $87,000 at an average of $84.43 per hectare. Parcels offering deeper rights only brought in just under $1.76 million, or 11.69 per cent of the total sale with an average price of $1,377.23 per hectare. In the southeast area, the top purchaser of land was Soo Line Resource Group Inc., who spent $2.23 million to acquire ďŹ ve lease parcels. Windfall Resources paid the top price for a single lease with the $1.18 million spent on 259 hectares adjacent to the Oungre Ratcliffe Beds Oil Pool, 60 kilometres west of Estevan. This was also the highest dollar paid per hectare at $4,562.32 per hectare. The second busiest sector in terms of interest from buyers, was the KindersleyKerrobert region where $2.14 million was spent on one licence and 32 leases. The

Province to review surface rights program The province has launched a public review of The Surface Rights Acquisition and Compensation Act. The act establishes guidelines to ensure the rights of landowners and mineral rights holders with respect to accessing land for exploration and development. “The act was introduced in 1968 and has remained largely unchanged since that time,” Energy and Resources

Minister Tim McMillan said. “The agriculture and oil and gas industries have experienced many changes over those years, so a review of the act is needed. We want to ensure that the legislation continues to serve the needs of all property holders — surface or mineral.” The public review will provide an opportunity for all stakeholders — including landowners, rural municipalities, agricultural organizations and the oil and gas industry — as well as members of the general public to provide comments on potential changes to the legislation. “We believe that Saskatchewan landowners and the oil and gas industry deserve to operate under an efficient and effective system that respects everyone’s property rights,”

Kenn Beggs 1934-2011 Gone are the days we used to share But in our hearts you are always there. The gates of memories are never closed And we miss you more than anyone knows. In God’s care you rest above In our hearts you rest in love As time unfolds another year, Memories keep you ever near. In our hearts you will always stay, Loved and remembered every day. -Lovingly remembered Joyce and Family

In Memory of Marion Eagles June 28-1923 - August 23-2008 There will always be A heartache, a silent tear Always precious memories Of the days when you were here. Although we smile and seem carefree, No one misses you more than we. We laugh, we smile, we play the part But behind it all are broken hearts. We hold our tears when people speak your name, But the ache in our hearts remains the same. To us you were so special. We love you and miss you Mom! Love -your Family Ross Harris July 13, 1943- August 20, 1988 Loving memories never die, As years roll on and days pass by; Deep in our hearts a memory is kept, Of the one we loved and will never forget. Lovingly remembered by Jan, Cathy ( Scott ), Barb ( Brian) , Theresa ( Kevin ), extended family and friends.

In loving memory of Susan Sovdi, who passed away August 7th, 1968. Hello Susan And how are you today? Are you glad that I am here, To talk to you today. Do you know SusanThat 45 years this day, Your accident happened, I’ve counted each day. Yes I remember that dear The day the sun glowed, When we all prayed for you. But, God said only no. You were my sister Susan I think back to those years, I try to keep from crying, But, from my eyes come tears. -Ever loved and remembered by your mother Alta, Clifford, Richard, Olive, Linda, Judy, Marilyn, our spouses and family

60 and Over Club Notes Shirley Graham 2013 Correspondent

Overheard a small boy praying, “Lord if you can’t make me a better boy, don’t worry about it, I’m having a real good time like I am.” What a wonderful time we had last Sunday at the “Jam Session,” when everyone finally got there. It was over 60, and a good time was had by all. See you all Sept. 8 for the next one. The scores for Wednesday Aug. 14 are as follows: For Bridge: In first place was Helen Marriott taking second was Carrie Leptick and third place went to Joan Derosier. The scores for Thursday Aug. 15 are: For Cribbage: first place went to Bert Parent, second was taken by Nick Morsky, and coming in third was Marg Cantlon. A Story of the Week A new employee approached one of the women in our office with an important looking paper in her hand. She pointed to a paper-shredding machine and asked how to operate it. “You just turn on this switch and put in your paper. That’s it!” As the machine devoured her documents, she asked,” How many copies does it make?” Have a good day!!

Loans program geared towards livestock producers The Ministry of Agriculture has amended the rules for the Livestock Loan Guarantee Program to better meet the needs of producers and grow the industry. “Our government is committed to providing producers with the tools they need to remain competitive in today’s marketplace,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said. “These changes were made in consultation with industry stakeholders, and will help to grow the livestock industry in Saskatchewan.” Individual maximum loan limits have been increased from $300,000 to $500,000 under the cattle feeder option, and from $200,000 to $500,000 under the cattle breeder option. The combined individual maximum limit under both options has been increased from $300,000 to $500,000. Individual maximum loan limits have been increased from $200,000 to $500,000 under the bison feeder option, and from $125,000 to $500,000 under the bison breeder option. The combined individual maximum limit under both bison options has been increased from $300,000 to

$500,000. Other changes include increasing the corporate maximum loan limit under cattle and bison feeder and breeder options from $300,000 to $1.5 million. Previously, corporate and individual borrowing limits were the same. LLG supervisors now have the authority to allow the interprovincial movement of cattle enrolled under the feeder and breeder options. The new rules will help to reduce barriers to livestock expansion and reflect a modern and evolving industry. Using Radio Frequency Identification tags on calves as an alternative to brands are now permitted under the cattle breeder option. The tagging date for calves under the bison breeder option has changed from Dec. 1 of the year of birth to March 31 of the year after birth, to align with the weaning process. Increasing the size of the livestock herd in Saskatchewan is one of the targets set out in the plan for growth, and supports the goal of establishing the province as a global leader in agriculture production,

cumstances in Saskatchewan’s livestock industry so directly,” Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association president Harold Martens said. “Producers now have more choice when it comes to managing their livestock operations, ultimately leading to greater efficiency and higher returns for Saskatchewan.” The Livestock Loan Guarantee program was established in 1984 to encourage growth of the province’s livestock industry and provide financing to producers purchasing livestock or developing feedlots.

Trinity Tower happenings By Peggy Bolton Correspondent Hi Everyone from Trinity Tower Hi Risers. We are finally getting a taste of summer heat, so enjoy. Dianne and Luverne Bod have returned from a holiday to Courtenay B.C. In Dianne’s absence Donna Hanson looked after the manager job very well. We are so lucky here to have these two wonderful women who go over and above the call of duty. Thank you. Brent Leptich from Red Deer visited his parents Laurence and Vivian Leptich on the Aug. 10 weekend. We wish Susanne Widenmaier fast and healing and we want you home soon. We all miss you. Helen Ross shared delicious cheese cake with us on her birthday August 14. We were happy she did not have any calories in it. John Fowler is now in the Lampman Care Home. We miss you here John but our

loss is Lampman’s gain. We are sure you will keep them smiling there. Erling Rothe has moved to Creighton Lodge. Happiness to you in your new home. You will be missed here so do come back for a visit. His family came to help him move and enjoyed their visit with him. Dianne Green and son Josh from Regina visited the Boltons on the Aug. 17 weekend. Hubby and I had a relaxing holiday at Flin Flon visiting Lyall’s brother Dennis. Crops look great so hopefully the farmers can get them off. We had a chuckle on our trip when we had a long wait in construction. The young fellow who was standing holding the stop sign kept falling asleep, would jerk forward, shake his head and fall back asleep again. Hubby compared him to a horse sleeping on his feet. We concluded he had a very hard night or an extremely boring job. He kept us entertained wondering if he would do a face plant. Until next week, God Bless and keep smiling.
