The minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health was in Estevan on July 30 as part of his summer visitation schedule, which means barbecues not ministry announcements. Randy Weekes said the community engagement calendar this summer has been an ambitious one, with Estevan being the 12th call on the list. Weekes said the general conversations during the

informal meetings and luncheons has usually focused on physician recruitment and retention, and primary health care. Asked if he had any concerns raised regarding underutilization of hospitals and health care centres in rural Saskatchewan, Weekes said that topic had not been raised during the conversations. “I am not hearing underutilization of hospitals as a

Randy Weekes problem,” he said. Weekes also said the anticipated announcement

regarding a CT scanner for St Jospeh’s Hospital in Estevan, was not on his agenda for the visit to the Energy City. “It’s a meet and greet event. I met with the physicians, mayors and community leaders, and yes, the scanner was brought up, but I have nothing to add. That’s a topic down the road, probably for budget considerations next spring,” Weekes said.

“But we are aware of it and determining that if it comes, it’s done as a partnership with the ministry.” When asked what the implications might be if the local health care committee simply purchased a CT scanner, installed and operated it for two years with certified personnel, which is a proposal already in the Health Ministry’s hands, Weekes said the Rural ⇢ A2

Fitness Group Brings The Funk

In a wide-ranging one-hour visit with Souris-Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki, the veteran politician agreed to take a reflective look back on his nine-year career as a representative in the House of Commons as well as providing a look at the future. Komarnicki announced this spring that he will not be seeking reelection when the electorate go to the polls in the next federal election. This will give the party and local committee ample time to select the next federal candidate to carry the Conservative banner. Komarnicki has been a runaway leader at the polls in the past, which means the southeast Saskatchewan seat will be

Ed Komarnicki a very important one for the current government to try and keep. Komarnicki said he has made it clear that while he is stepping aside, he will also be stepping out of the picture and definitely will not be making any recommendations to the party’s hierarchy as to who he

thinks might be heir to the seat in the House of Commons. He’ll stay well out of that scenario, but will probably work backstage, so-tospeak, on getting the next Conservative party nominee elected. “The person will have to be an organizer because this is a strong Conservative area, and I expect the competition to be the next nominee will be stiff, and the contest could be tight. The candidate should be a new face, energetic and be prepared to take the next step up. It requires a lot of energy to do this job. There are a lot of miles to travel.” He said his constituency work and the additional work concerning the two secretariats he served in took up a lot of time. Komarnicki said he was fortunate to have worked with a number

of ministers in the secretariat in Immigration and Human Resources. If he had been called upon to be a cabinet minister, he said he felt he would have been up to the challenge, but what he had been able to do in the support role, was very rewarding and exciting. “Wherever you’re placed, that’s where you give it your best, and I always have,” he said. “It gave me the opportunity to meet some very interesting people and to travel across the country to represent the government and ministry and deal with issues that are very much in front of us today. There’s a lot of reform in human resources, and to be a part of the process to see it happen is exciting,” he said, referring to his time Komarnicki ⇢ A4

Pipe bomb found at North Portal A 21-year-old Ontario man was arrested Sunday after a pipe bomb was found in his car while he attempted to enter Canada through the North Portal border crossing. The discovery led to some tense moments at the busy port of entry as a building had to be evacuated and the RCMP’s explosive disposal unit was called in to neutralize the device. Derek Joseph Formosa, 21, of Toronto faces a charge of possession of an explosive device and was expected to make his first appearance in court Tuesday morning in Weyburn. Sgt. Daryl Milo of the Estevan RCMP detachment

said through their investigation they have not found any indication that Formosa intended on using the bomb or that he was connected to any sort of terrorist or organized crime groups. “It looks like it was something that he created as a kid, much younger, and had no means of disposing it and no intentions of using it,” Milo said. “He was travelling cross country to go to work and took it as an opportunity to try and dispose of it and hadn’t had that opportunity yet as he was re-entering Canada and obviously made some poor decisions, stupid decisions.” The release from the RCMP noted that Canada

Border Service Agency officers discovered what they believed to be an explosive device during a search of Formosa’s personal effects. The officers immediately evacuated the building where the vehicle was located and contacted the Estevan RCMP who arrived at the scene and took Formosa into custody. The RCMP’s disposal unit was also dispatched to the scene from Regina and detonated the device at around 8:30 that evening. “It was diligent work (by CBSA officers). They found it, to their credit, and got it away from him. It’s disposed of safely now,” said Milo.

A quick robbery that lasted about 30 seconds will end with a Moose Jaw man spending the next two years of his life in a federal penitentiary. A 7-Eleven in Weyburn was James Sippola’s first target and originally the only target for his get rich quick scheme. On July 30 at about 1 a.m. Sippola entered the Weyburn 7-Eleven wielding a long-bladed knife and dressed in a long coat, toque, sunglasses and scarf obscuring his face. He demanded the cash from the

register and the clerk handed over $65, showing him the till was empty except for change. Sippola then left the store. He was going to go back home to Moose Jaw but because he had hoped his efforts would be a little more fruitful, he decided to drive to Estevan to find some more cash. He found a 7-Eleven in Estevan and entered the store at about 2:15 a.m. He left less than a minute later, with an undisclosed amount of money and the store clerks called police.

It didn’t take police long to find a vehicle parked with a lone male occupant who matched the description given to them. He was arrested and quickly admitted to both robberies. In Estevan provincial court on Aug. 1, just two days after the incidents, Sippola pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery while two counts of being disguised while committing an indictable offence were stayed by the Crown. Sippola appeared before the court in custody and was prepared to keep it that way with sentencing going ahead the same day. Represented by Legal Aid, his defence and the Crown presented a joint submission to presiding Judge Ernie Bobowski suggesting a two-year federal penitentiary prison term, which the judge accepted. The 19-year-old army reservist had started a new job at a local oilfield construction company just two days before his decision to rob the pair of convenience stores.

An Ontario man faces charges after a pipe bomb was found among his possessions as he attempted to enter Canada through the North Portal crossing (above).

Quick investigation, confession The confession came quickly and justice was carried out swiftly last week. A male subject who was arrested for trespassing at night on July 31 was subjected to an interview and investigation launched by Estevan Police Service (EPS) personnel on Aug. 1. The man who was the subject of the investigation confessed to being in possession of a small amount of money that

had been taken from vehicles. The police had launched the investigation following several calls from victims complaining that their vehicles had been entered and money being taken from them. Evan Kyle Kallis, 22, appeared in court and pleaded guilty to the charge of being in possession of the stolen property and was sentenced to six months of incarceration.

Integrated Border Enforcement Team, arrested the 23-year-old for trafficking cocaine. The involved parties executed a search warrant and seized over $15,000 worth of drugs ranging from crack and powdered cocaine to prescription

drugs. An undisclosed amount of cash was also seized as proceeds of crime. The investigation into the matter is ongoing and charges are pending in relation to the trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking in cocaine and prescription drugs.

⇠ A1 project would first have to get approval from the Sun Country Health Authority and the Health Ministry. He did not wish to speculate on what the implications or repercussions would or could be if a local committee acted on its own. Contacted after the press conference, St. Joseph’s executive director Greg Hoffort said the local committee still has their sights set firmly on a 2013 announcement regarding a

CT scanner. Weekes did say, however, that communications between the ministry and the rural health regions needed improvement as well as communications among the health regions themselves. The minister added that there have been no discussions held recently regarding future amalgamations or boundary changes for health regions, like there has been for constituency

representations. Weekes said that before his tours are completed, he will have visited over 40 communities. He noted he had toured some in the winter and had been present for the recent sod-turning ceremony for the Kipling Health Centre in the Sun Country region. Working in a ministry within a ministry (Rural and Remote Health works as a sub-ministry within the Health Ministry and Minister Dustin Duncan), has not created any conflicts or confusion regarding files and projects, he said. Weekes added that physician recruitment and retention in rural Saskatchewan is receiving a boost with a financial incentive program for new medical graduates, and there is now a more efficient system of certifying international recruits and the number of seats in the medical college at the University of Saskatchewan was recently bumped up from 60 to 100. The Health Ministry and Ministry for Rural and Remote Health are also seriously considering a physician residency program in Sun Country. There are four other residency programs underway in major centres outside of Saskatoon and Regina. Improved efficiency measures are already underway in the health regions with the Lean initiative, he said. Those practises have already rewarded the health centres practically and financially.

Each Funkology session ends with a team photo featuring all the participants at the weekly get together. After the workout, the group regularly goes out for ice cream and socializing.

Fitness community all about the funk By Jordan Baker Of the Mercury They call themselves the most audacious fitness community in Canada, and they’re looking to foster a Culture of Funk in the Energy City. It’s called Funkology — not a scientific term — and it’s the basis for a robust workout that encourages fun, friendship and pushing yourself to do better. Founded by Levi Clampitt with Cara Lee getting in on the ground floor, the workouts sprung up from humble origins in December 2012. It all started with the Funk Walk. Unable to enjoy the outdoors in the middle of a Prairie winter, the group took to the Estevan Leisure Centre, donned weighted jackets and walked around the track in Spectra Place. A couple more people joined in, more activities were added to the workout and when May rolled around and the group was able to exercise outside, Funkology really took off. Clampitt said there are now about 60 people who will attend the weekly sessions on a regular basis, with about 20 showing up for each one. On July 31, I threw on gym shorts and running shoes to see exactly what this Culture of Funk was all about. Clampitt summed things up pretty quickly with an offhand remark to the participants following the warm-up. “Who knew working

out could be fun?” he said. Clampitt and Lee are resident Funkologists, setting up and running different exercises with fellow organizers Blair Tinant, Rico Tomsha and Anastasiya Shved. Together they create a safe and friendly atmosphere that truly does make working out fun. It has to be fun and non-intimidating because that’s what keeps everyone coming back. “We put the fun in funky,” Clampitt said. “It’s that fun that you get from overcoming obstacles. You feel empowered. Over on my station, there’s a lot of people who are hating in the moment, it’s not fun for them. But afterwards, they pat themselves on their back.” The group is a nonprofit entity. As Clampitt and Lee put it, they don’t make people pay, they let them. There is a donation box at each session, and participants can drop in some money if they choose. The money goes into a communal pot for team T-shirts, equipment and events as well as charities. The group’s last fundraiser for Get Active 4 Autism brought in $418 at one session. Growing from the Funk Walks to the Funk Sessions, Clampitt said everything has grown organically. He said they try to challenge everyone but also give people breaks. “And we reward them with ice cream,” added Lee, noting everyone who wants to come get ice cream after a session is welcome to join

the group. “There’s always a lot of laughs here. It’s not like when you go to the gym. In a way, it feels like gym class, but gym class when you were seven years old and it was still fun.” The Funkology group also wants to help the participants build relationships outside of their weekly workouts. Aside from getting ice cream, they host barbecues and events in lots of casual environments. “This is a lifestyle. It’s not just a workout. It’s likeminded individuals and just meeting with them for dinner, parties, movies, whatever. Just being in their lives is what the funk is about,” said Clampitt. And when he says you need to experience Funkology to really understand it, he’s right. For those intimidated by fitness groups, the Funkologists and everyone else attending will put you

at ease and let you go at your own pace. You’re only competing against yourself. Tomsha noted Clampitt repeatedly tells everyone, ‘There are no egos here.” When I attended a session last week, the group set up at the Estevan Comprehensive School’s football field. The exercises were divided into four stations and the larger group was split into groups of four. With small numbers of people in each station and then moving from spot to spot, the workout keeps everyone active regularly with some moments for breaks. Things started easy enough in my group with two sets of 20 lunges, followed by leg lifts. We quickly moved into military crawls before getting back on our feet for agility steps and high-five planks. The next session involved a series of burpees,

planks, one-arm planks and insect crawls, running each for 40 seconds at a time. The next station involved simply pulling a weight on a makeshift sled through the grass. Thirty seconds was all you needed for that one. The final station was for tire flips and pulls. I would have preferred the tire flip, but put up with the tire pull. The session ends with what the Funkologists call The Challenge. It’s a different activity each time. At the end of the previous session the group split into teams and pushed their cars to a finish line. This week the evening closed with the cone game, a mad dash around the field picking up and knocking over pylons to help your team win. Clampitt and Lee are now moving out of Estevan, but Funkology will continue under the guidance of Tinant,

Tomsha and Shved who are looking forward to keeping the funk alive. The new Funkologists have been part of the team from almost the very beginning and wish to keep things going with new and innovative workouts. “I think we just want to keep on switching things up. I think that’s one of the best things Cara and Levi did, was every week was something new and different,” said Tomsha. “You see the tires over here, it’s amazing how much you can do with a tire.” “We want to keep it funky. It’s not just an exercise, it’s something unique,” added Shved. Anybody looking for further information about the fitness group may check out the website www.funkology. info and through the website people are able to connect with the Facebook group.

Levi Clampitt, middle, explains the next activity to the rest of the group during a recent Funkology session.

Estevan Mercury

Komarnicki favours Senate independence in future ⇠ A1 as chairman of the human resources committee. Housing and labour are other areas he’s been involved with and again, there has been a lot of action on those fronts. Komarnicki also spoke about items such as the pending Jobs Training Grant file and how important it is to fill vacant positions with skilled workers, which takes some fine tuning. This requires the provincial governments to be onside with the plan as it is presented, or making changes to the concept, so that everyone can buy into the process to serve the better good. Labour agreements can get tricky because of the conditions (sharing costs) and needs of each province. “It’s not a bad idea to train people to fill jobs that already exist,” he said, referring to the concept behind the Job Training Grant. Komarnicki said he felt the Conservative government has been loyal to its founding ideals, especially in terms of serving families, keeping taxes low and making reforms to the criminal law system. “So in those primary areas, I think we’ve held to those ideals.” Komarnicki said changes to employment insurance is another file the current government could be proud of. They had to put money into it during the recession, but incrementally it’s been moved toward a self-sufficiency level. “You need to reduce the red tape, get out of the way of entrepreneurs and not increase but reduce taxes to allow the economy to move forward and allow foreign investment to come in, and over the years Canada has done fairly well.” On the subject of the perception that the Prime Minister’s Office has placed a muzzle on MPs, especially backbenchers, Komarnicki said, “There are interesting dynamics and pressures applied. If you’re going to run a country you have to have structure and organization and direction. You can’t have everyone pulling in a different direction. The PMO’s office has a team of

people by and large I find are pretty good, well educated and capable, and then on the other hand you have MPs who are very capable and have the experience of life and you have some tension at times. My experience is that you have the caucus meeting each week where you can make your point, state your position to the PM and his office. There is the liaison committee too, so you have channels where you can express your points of view. You won’t always have agreement on the decisions and directions. But you have to decide as a MP at what point it’s something you can no longer support. And in my view it requires team players. You make your best efforts to change their point of view. Once they’re established you have to pull in the same direction unless you find yourself in a moral or ethical position where you just can’t. Then if you can’t, then you’re off on that course. “It’s obvious you’re not always going to agree with the direction of government, but you pull in the same direction because overall when you look at the big picture, look at it from 30,000 feet, you ask yourself, ‘are we doing good things for the country that I signed up for?’ and if you are, look at things that are paramount. If you look at how the country’s changed, it’s pretty substantial. But with individual items, I don’t always agree with our other MPs, but the big picture is where we are going as a team.” Komarnicki said he’s always held strong views on individual items such as the question of abortion and protecting life, but the PMO has taken a position that hasn’t allowed the MPs to express themselves. “I’ve always felt there was room for legitimate debate on those kinds of issues. Some of the steps I haven’t been in agreement with, and I’ve always voted that way. I respect the PM’s view on that topic. We’re allowed to vote as we see fit. I’ve always had pretty strong views on the definition of marriage too, so you have to say if the majority is going in a certain direction, you

suck it up and keep going.” On Senate reform or complete abolition Komarnicki said it would be a matter of making it clear just how either of those

things could be done. The legal implications and the process would be tricky, and it would probably be the Supreme Court that would ultimately decide on any major direction that might be taken to do either of these things. It’s a matter of following the rules. Komarnicki said reforming the Senate would probably be a good idea, especially if it could be made more independent rather than as a body of appointees who are expected to follow party lines. He said the PM is quite clear that if provinces elected a senator, that person would be appointed. When it comes down to personalities in the House of Commons, Komarnicki said he finds Thomas Mulcair, the leader of the Official Opposition, the NDP, to be quite capable after he found himself in a position where he was taking over from Jack Layton. “I don’t think he’s gelled as a potential alternative for government from what I’ve seen,” he said. “He appears to be a bit bombastic, a couple of mistakes he’s made with respect to the Dutch disease in terms of the high dollar and natural resources would not have stood him well in the west. His party’s posi-

extent,” he said, referring to the situation where the majority of the NDP MPs are from that province as a result of the ground work done by the previous deceased leader, Layton. As for Justin Trudeau, Komarnicki said he too will probably have difficulty in the west. He said he was young and still hadn’t put anything of substance forward in terms of policy or statements, at least to this time. “So far his points are quite shallow, and he’s been basically going on his personality. I don’t see him as a leader the country is prepared for going forward. But he does have an ability to attract people. In that he’s shown well. Although in some places I see where the polls have shifted, so the honeymoon may already be over. Canadians as a whole will see what shape we’re in internationally and Harper is still the best leader. Economic indicators are strong. We came through a recession in pretty good shape. Independent third parties have taken a look at this government and the ratings are pretty good.” Moving resources to markets is a big issue for this area of the country. Moving oil to Eastern Canadian refineries is a current critical issue, along with the safety and environmental issues having to be considered.

ties, everything I’ve seen from the international trade minister, prime minister and agricultural minister they’ve been very aggressive in doing bi-lateral agreements. Komarnicki noted he was surprised at how hard the beef industry was hit, first with the BSE crisis and the slow return of the international markets to Canadian beef and now the additional challenge coming from the United States regarding country of origin labelling regulations for beef. He said it could be worse if prices had been soft, but fortunately they have been strong lately on the beef and grain side of the farming sector. As far as the controversial decision to shut down the Canadian Wheat Board’s monopoly on grain marketing and handling, Komarnicki said he has been surprised that he hasn’t received any feedback. It’s been one year since the practice was curtailed. “My sense is that farmers have accepted the fact and have acclimatized to the new sense of farming. It’s not like it’s a new learning curve, they’ve marketed other commodities in the open market.” He said the fact that prices are robust might be another reason for the acceptance of the new reality. As far as House of Commons personalities are

concerned, Komarnicki said he’s witnessed some sea changes over the years, one of the major ones being the passing of Layton, which in some regards was a surprise since it happened relatively quickly. “When you look at some of the players, there’s Paul Martin, Belinda Stronach. There was a time she was in our cabinet. There was the switch to the Liberal party and there was a tie vote and Belinda Stronach came in to help them survive. And now all these players are gone.” Komarnicki said the arrival of the new, and often very young NDP MPs from Quebec has also provided some shifts in thoughts and studies. “You have a whole new set of faces facing you across the floor. Bloc members are gone, including Gilles Duceppe, their leader. Having seen all that, it leaves me with the thought that in the world of politics, all kinds of things can happen in a relatively short time. “That’s why I say we have to look at things from 30,000 feet and not get too involved with the tinkering of things you encounter along the way.” He said he has been quite fortunate to represent the constituency during robust economic times. “In 2006, our population started to increase rather dramatically, my sense was there was another dimension to this constituency and it, too, needed to be brought to the foreground. And when I look at the oil and gas, service industries, carbon capture, potash … all of those things have made Souris-Moose Mountain a composite of various factors. We have had one of the strongest economic periods of Saskatchewan’s history. And, of course, the negative such as housing and roads.” Komarnicki said he is firm in his decision to retire with the call of the next election. He said he’ll miss the hum and buzz of the House of Commons, and it’s been interesting to have the collegiality that exists there, but it would be time to move on with a promise he made to his wife that he’d sit back for at least six months in a retirement, or at least a semi-retirement before making any new decisions. He said a return to a law practice was not in the mix, it was something he had done for 31 years prior to his first election in 2004, and so while he may enter into some new challenges at age 66 or more, that wouldn’t be part of the new direction.

Brian Perich has cycled across Mongolia and the Himalayas and is now in the midst of a trek across North America. Beginning in Grand Rapids, Mich. he is cycling 3,000 kilometres to Banff. The entire trip is expected to take 28 days.

Adventure cyclist blasts across North America He has biked cross-country and across countries, and Brian Perich passed through the Energy City hoping to reenergize on his journey to the Rocky Mountains. The 40-year-old Windsor, Ont. native has done this before on rougher terrain. What could be rougher than a Saskatchewan highway? Well, he did cycle 2,500 kilometres through Mongolia in 45 days in 2012, travelling on dusty roads. After that, the trip from Grand Rapids, Mich. to Banff should be a walk or ride in the park. He also cycled across the Himalayas in 2011. In all, he biked 3,200 in 38 days, losing about 35 pounds of body weight in the process. That’s why Perich started adventure cycling. He moved to South Korea in 2003 and has been there ever since. He teaches English at a university and married a Korean woman a few years ago. He was back in Canada for a family reunion, and with a little bit of extra time, he decided to complete his To the Rock Tour, by travelling from southern Michigan to western Alberta. It took 18 days for Perich to reach Estevan, after travelling into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and heading west. He crossed in Saskatchewan at North Portal and arrived in Estevan on July 30. At about 2,000 kilometres, he completes just over 100 each day. With just over 1,000 kilometres left he is hoping to reach Banff this coming Friday. Perich is a supporter of the IDEAS Foundation of Canada, the Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society, which in turn, supports those with Crohn’s disease. He plans to one day move back to Canada with his wife and two children and is using this cross-country trek to reconnect with his roots and his countrymen. He is trying to rebuild a bridge to his community that has slowly degraded over the past decade. “For me, community is important,” said Perich. “I learned about what I had because I went to the Far East region and I lost it. For a quarter of my life I didn’t have family connections

close by, so when I run into people in Canada now, I just love this country. This country is amazing.” He said Asia has been a great experience for him, but he doesn’t have that same sense of community over there. “When I’m meeting people, I’m sparked back with life,” said Perich. “This trip was much more isolating in a certain respect compared to Mongolia. Mongolia was loneliness looking at so many families. I met so many families, and they live in one little yurt.” Where we have separate rooms for kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, the nomadic families in Mongolia don’t compartmentalize themselves in the same way. He said he really notices the cultural differences that stem from that way of living. Perich suggested that in the western world, we have developed our own ways to go back to experiencing the nomadic lifestyles of our early ancestors. “This journey here, I went to a music festival in Michigan. There were about 4,500 people, and it was awesome, because people want to return to be nomads. We want to live like that. Everybody was camping in the forest. Everyone was very relaxed. It was safe there. I think it’s something we want, but we have to create it.” Because it isn’t something that is quite so natural in North America, Perich said he doesn’t meet as many people through

When he does get invited in to someone’s place, he finds it customary to give a gift and provide some sort of exchange for people’s generosity. He noticed in Mongolia an exchange of gifts, even among strangers, was customary. “You give a gift.

Are politics holding up CT scan decision? Long ago, the phrase “never look a gift horse in the mouth,” was coined. We’re not exactly sure from whom that quip originated but the wisdom of the statement is undeniable. It’s a shame our provincial government doesn’t see it that way when it comes to the purchase of CT scan unit for Estevan. In an effort to see that St. Joseph’s Hospital receives the muchneeded piece of equipment, the local health-care group has made a pledge to the province to not only purchase a CT scan and pay for it to be installed, they would also cover the first two years of operation. All told, that is over $2 million that the provincial government doesn’t have to dig through its couch cushions to find. Seems like one hell of a deal, no? Yet here we are, months after the local group made their offer to the province, and sadly, it appears Estevan is no closer to seeing a CT scan than it was at the beginning of 2013. In fact, if recent comments from Rural Health Minister Randy Weekes are any indication, it may not be until 2014 before there is some movement. In an interview with Mercury co-editor Norm Park last week, Weekes had little to say on the matter, other than to mention that a CT scan might have to wait until 2014 budget deliberations take place. That of course makes little sense when one considers none of the money would be coming from provincial accounts. So it would seem that something else is at play here, and we are left to surmise it’s likely nothing more than old-fashioned politics. What else makes sense? You have a community — really an entire corner of the province when one considers the support from area towns and RMs — that is willing to spend its own money for a piece of equipment that is undeniably needed. There’s been rumblings that a couple of other communities have been making their cases for a CT scan and perhaps were in line ahead of Estevan — hence the commitment to pay for the machine with local money — and the hesitation of the government to accept the offer is because they don’t want to upset Sask. Party faithful. That is, of course, just speculation, but in the absence of a better explanation from our government, it seems rather plausible. And, if it is politics that are holding up the acquisition of a CT scan for St. Joe’s, then shame on the government. This is a critical piece of diagnostic equipment that we are speaking about, one that could, with no exaggeration, mean the difference between life and death for a resident of this province. Aside from the obvious improvement in patient care that would follow a CT scan, it would also make it a lot easier to recruit physicians and specialists to Estevan. Really, we could go on for hours explaining why a CT scan is needed. Instead, we are left to wonder why a provincial government that speaks about the need to watch its financial P’s and Q’s has not jumped all over the offer presented to them by the local consortium. It sure smells like politics and it doesn’t smell good.

Interesting statistics While a lot of you might find statistics boring, occasionally you will run across a stat that leaps up and bites you. Doug Elliott, publisher of SaskTrends Monitor and probably Saskatchewan's foremost statistical expert, is always a good source for statistics. In an interview this summer, Elliott came up with just such a statistic ... albeit one that is a little foreboding for rural Saskatchewan. According to Elliott, in the last five years, Saskatoon has created 21,500 jobs and Regina has created 21,000. The entire rest of the province, however, has only added 2,500 SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

Being neutral on nuclear I have honestly strived to look at nuclear stuff in a neutral, openminded pattern over the years. Mostly I have succeeded in being able to weigh the pros and cons surrounding such things as nuclear power plants, nuclear rod waste, weapons and nuclear powered equipment of any other nature. I have taken the Switzerland stance on most of these files with one major codicil, and that is the understanding that the nuclear materials are always handled in a totally secured environment. Of course, I know that once you add the human element, there will be errors and omissions somewhere along the way, but they would be of the minor and inconsequential nature. Then I read a report, I believe it was in May, about how three anti-nuclear protestors, including an 83-year-old nun, broke into a nuclear storehouse for bomb grade uranium and apparently did so without a lot of problem. The trio of protestors spent two hours inside the facility, breached the high security area, cut security fences, hung banners, strung up crime-scene tape and hammered out a portion of a high security wall, just to prove they could. Now this was not your ordinary storage shed for lawnmowers and ladders, although it seemed as if it was. It contained uranium parts for nuclear warheads and dismantled nuclear weapons. It was also the storehouse for nuclear bomb uranium. This was the place where the Manhattan Project was launched.

Norm Park All Things Considered So the Inspector General came along after the breaching incident, and his report suggested that security failures at the site “abounded.” I would think that was still a bit of an understatement. The General of Inspection pointed out that a lot of the detection equipment that was to be used at the storage site, was broken and there was a poor response by security guards. Again, I would accept that as a huge understatement. When it takes two hours for guards named Paul Blart, mall cop, to round up a noisy 83-year-old nun, ya gotta reassess your personnel performance. Then the security report got into the bureaucratic baffle garble stuff and talked about insufficient federal oversight of the private contractors who were running the complex. Now you see, an accidental reference here, especially when we here in Saskatchewan are being told that private, public partnerships, the highly touted P3 projects are just the thing for us. The private sector can do the job, whether it be building and running schools, hospitals, waste water and non-waste water plants, bridges and, yes, nuclear storage sites, without any problem. I would add, as long as they can show a healthy increasing profit and

more people to the workforce. Of course, you know what they say about lies, damn lies and statistics. But this particular piece of information isn’t exactly the kind of percentage information easily manipulated, the kind that governments use to make themselves look good or that oppositions use to make governments look bad. The numbers are real ... even if they really don’t seem to make much sense. Even Elliott is somewhat at a loss for an explanation as to why the difference is so great. After all, while Regina and Saskatoon are growing and certain smaller communities are suffering, the core industries of the Saskatchewan economy — oil, potash and agriculture — are all in rural Saskatchewan. One would assume that these rural-based industries are creating a lot of local jobs. Elliott is also puzzled by Statistics Canada’s data suggesting agricultural jobs are on the increase. As we all know, the numbers of farmers continue to dwindle — even in these profitable times when net receipts on the farm have doubled in the past five years. The statistician speculates it may have something to do with people declaring themselves farmers or farm employees — at least on a part-time basis. As for the incredibly low job creation numbers outside Regina and Saskatoon, that still is a bit of a puzzler ... unless you examine all the statistical information carefully. For example, if you look carefully at the oil industry, you will see new well drilling is down right now. Moreover,

improved dividends for shareholders in every quarter, then yes, they can build, maintain and operate the facilities. But once that profit disappears, even just temporarily … look out. A corner will be cut, even if it’s nuclear storage. Or in this case, several corners being cut to preserve profit and retain shareholders and high-priced CEOs. The lawyers who came on board to defend those who did the break-in, took the interesting tack that instead of charging the protestors for their actions, they should be rewarding and thanking them for revealing how sad and bad the security system was. In the meantime, the Nuclear Security Administration said they were going to take “decisive action.” Now doesn’t that sound convincing and reassuring? Yep, and Nixon wasn’t a crook, Clinton didn’t lie about Lewinski, Mike Duffy was just confused about housing allowances and Pam Wallin knows that Wadena is her real home. I didn’t follow up on the trial of the Nuclear Three, but I know they were being charged with more than mere trespassing. It was something more like sabotage, the stuff that military and Internet guys like Assange, Snowden and Manning are facing. I guess the nuclear weapons protection guys don’t like being embarrassed. They may not know much about security, but they sure know how to litigate. And I may not be so neutral on nuclear much longer.

some of those doing the drilling are Alberta workers who aren’t full-time Saskatchewan residents. Similarily, while there are more jobs in potash mine construction, these too are often being performed by contractors and workers who don’t necessarily reside in rural Saskatchewan. As for the potash industry itself, the glut in production means that there aren’t a lot of new, full-time miners being hired. Elliott said it’s also important to note what kind of jobs are now being created in Saskatchewan and who is filling them. Many are in the service sector (sales, restaurants, etc.) Those jobs are often being filled by new arrivals to the country. And it is the cities that are getting most of these jobs. Of course, a lot of you will point to the success of several communities in attracting their own new arrivals. Those from Moosomin, Weyburn and particularly Estevan where the vacancy rate is much lower than either Regina or Saskatoon might assume the statistics are simply wrong. But Elliott noted that the statistical information covers the entire remainder of the province, meaning that it takes into account every other community losing population and workers. As the population ages and birthrate slows, not only does a community shrink but what also shrinks are their service jobs (teachers, health care workers, etc.) This has to be a worry for the Saskatchewan Party government, both economically and politically. After all, rural Saskatchewan is still its base. And it seems that it isn’t creating many jobs in its base.

Letters to the Editor

Loopholes put rural wireless service at risk The Editor: Canadians in small towns and rural communities deserve access to the best wireless networks and new smartphones at competitive prices. That’s why Canada’s wireless industry invests billions of dollars every year and employs thousands of Canadians to build and enhance our wireless networks. Today, 99 per cent of Canadians in cities, towns and rural locations alike have access to world-class mobile services and devices at the same prices as those available to customers in major cities. But rural rollouts of the latest and greatest in wireless — LTE or “Long Term Evolution” networks — are now at risk. The federal government has inadvertently left loopholes in new wireless regulations that pave the way for giant US corporations like Verizon Communications to purchase more of Canada’s airwaves than Canadian wireless companies can. These loopholes enable major US players to benefit from regulatory advantages actually intended for small, competitive wireless startups. Bell welcomes competition with anyone but there must be a level playing field. Big advantages for huge US entrants will cost all Canadians — and many expect the worst impact will be felt by Canadians who live and work in rural communities. Canadians increasingly use smartphones and advanced data networks for business and educational applications,

social networking, and entertainment options such as mobile TV and gaming. This fast-growing mobile data usage means that more and more spectrum is needed to satisfy demand. And certain airwaves – like the 700 MHz spectrum about to be auctioned by the federal government – are best suited to carrying data over greater distances. These airwaves are a public resource, and are ideal for delivering advanced wireless services to rural and remote locations across Canada. The bad news for rural Canadians is that spectrum purchased by Verizon will not be used in rural areas. And because Verizon can bid for more of these newly available airwaves than Canadian companies can, providers like Bell will be limited in how extensively we can roll out new rural coverage. Industry experts predict that New York based Verizon will avoid building networks in Canada’s rural areas altogether and focus only on serving the largest cities. It’s not just that a company like Verizon is unlikely to deliver more choice or reduced prices to rural Canadians (the average Verizon Wireless customer actually pays more than the average Bell wireless customer). Their ability to acquire more of our country’s prime airwaves than Canada’s own companies means that the spectrum ideal for rural rollouts will be used up serving mostly urban areas. Investment in rural Canada will decline. Canadian jobs will be lost. We believe a $120-billion US company like Verizon,

multiple times bigger than Canada’s entire wireless industry combined, simply does not need favours from the Canadian government in order to compete with us. It’s not too late for Ottawa to take action to support a fair and open marketplace, and ensure the ongoing rollout of advanced mobile services to rural Canadians. Bell has brought LTE network technology to 75 per cent of Canadians. With additional spectrum from the government’s upcoming auction and a level playing field, further network rollouts in smaller communities will be possible. Without changes to the loopholes, however, further rollouts are clearly at risk. The solution is straightforward. We ask that Canadian wireless companies be allowed the same opportunity to acquire Canadian spectrum as US companies like Verizon. And if a company like Verizon enters Canada, it should be required to use its resources to build its own national network covering both urban and rural locations, just as Canada’s wireless leaders have done. These steps will help ensure a strong Canadian wireless industry that continues to deliver world-leading mobile services at competitive prices in all markets – including Canada’s small towns and rural communities.

Stephen Harper’s cone of silence continues The Editor: Having trouble telling fact from fiction in the Senate expenses scandal? There’s a reason for that. Since the news broke that Stephen Harper’s right-hand man cut a $90,000 cheque to cover-up the potential fraudulent expenses of Conservative Senator Mike Duffy — a potentially criminal action — Mr. Harper has consistently misled Canadians about what really happened. He claimed his Chief of Staff, Nigel Wright, acted alone and no one else knew. In fact, court documents reveal four members of Mr. Harper’s inner circle knew. He claimed there was no email recording the terms of the deal. In fact, his office now admits there is one. He claimed his personal legal counsel was not involved. In fact, RCMP docu-

ments reveal that he was involved. Mr. Harper claimed the first Senate expenses report reflected the auditors’ findings. In fact, we now know it was whitewashed to go easy on Duffy. And that’s just what is public. The Conservatives have been accused of stonewalling the RCMP investigation into the whole tawdry affair. Instead of giving us the straight goods, Mr. Harper has clamped down and put on a cone of silence. Canadians expect better; they expect honest answers to serious questions about the potentially criminal behaviour at the heart of their government. Marc Garneau, MP Liberal Party of Canada

Time running out on Lampman family The saga of a Lampman family and their modified vehicle appears to be coming to a conclusion and barring a last minute Hail Mary from the provincial government, it won’t have a happy ending. Edwin and Alison Morris were recently informed by the Canada Border Services Agency that they must remove their vehicle from the North Portal Border Crossing or it will be declared abandoned and destroyed. In an interview with The Mercury Thursday, Alison Morris said unless the provincial government steps up to help them there is little the family can do to save their 10-person suburban that was modified to allow the entire family to travel together safely. The Morris’ have been caught in a blender of red tape and bureaucracy since the summer of 2011 when they took their suburban to an Oklahoma custom vehicle shop to have it modified so the entire family could drive in the same vehicle safely. Alison had done her homework and said she was led to believe by the CBSA that the vehicle would not be considered an import when they attempted to bring it back into Canada. However, upon arrival at the North Portal crossing, the Morris’ were told the vehicle would not be allowed back into the country because the frame had been modified. It has been sitting at

the border, stuck in limbo, since Aug. 15, 2011. In a June 9, 2012 story that appeared in The Mercury, an official with Transport Canada said the problem is “bringing back to Canada a Canadian-certified vehicle after having it altered in another country constitutes importation, and the importer must comply with the Canadian regulations.” Although she has been waging a multi-pronged battle to get the vehicle back, Alison hadn’t heard from the government for a 16-month period that ended in May when she received a letter from Vic Toews, the former federal minister of transport, again informing her that vehicle would not be allowed into the country. On July 16, they received a phone call from a CBSA official who reiterated that the vehicle wasn’t admissible and the Morris’ had to export it. If they did not export it within 30 days, the vehicle would be destroyed. “I was a little bit floored,” Alison said. “Our option is to sell it back to the modifier and we never purchased it from him, and legally, I don’t think that is his obligation to purchase it from us when he never sold it to us. Even if he did buy it, he would have to find a buyer outside of North America for it. “So, their solution is really not a solution and in the meantime (the CBSA) continue to deny that they have done any-

For all of your concrete needs

The Morris family of Lampman faces the possibility of having their modified vehicle destroyed by the federal government. The family has made a plea to Premier Brad Wall to help them get their vehicle back. thing wrong.” Although there are a handful of clauses that complicate matters, Alison contends it is the provincial government that has jurisdiction in their case and that Transport Canada is acting outside of its authority. “We have been saying that the constitution grants power exclusively to the provinces over property, it’s black and white. That is why Transport Canada, their only jurisdiction in the country is over vehicles before they are sold (by the manufacturer.) Once sold at the retail level, that no longer applies, it’s then provincial jurisdiction. For that reason, that is why you see so many modified vehicles. None of that would

be allowed by Transport Canada if they had the jurisdiction that they are asserting at the border over individuals.” Alison said they are now calling upon the provincial government to intervene on their behalf and she has made a public plea to Premier Brad Wall to help the family. “The province could step in and help if they wanted to, and that is what we are pushing for,” she said. “There is power within the Traffic Safety Act and I believe, the constitution to allow (Wall) to step in. The province needs to step in and they could. They try to tell us that they have no power, but we have been able to show it in the law if they would listen to us.”

Along with the media, the Green Party of Saskatchewan has also taken notice of the Morris’s plight and on Wednesday, leader Victor Lau called on the premier to help the family get their vehicle back. “The Morris family has done nothing wrong,” Lau said in a press release. “The Morris’s lawfully invested $90,000 in this truck, and they should be allowed to have it back as soon as possible.” Alison added that her family has also received a great deal of support over social media, noting that her Twitter feed — @ seatbeltsplease — has well over 14,000 followers. “People are tired of the government intervening in their lives when they

don’t need to,” she said. Even though time is running short, a clearly frustrated Alison said she will fight to get the vehicle back. “Surely someone can work with us. This is Canada; I have more rights in a Third World country to protect my family than I do in Canada. Tourists visiting Canada have more rights to drive their family safely than I do. This is ridiculous. “We were only doing this out of necessity because we had no option. We haven’t been able to put all the car seats that we are legally required to take in our vehicle since 2008 because they don’t fit; they are too wide. This has been hanging over our heads for two years.”

Farmers remain busy with haying

As the saying goes Saskatchewan farmers made hay while the sun was shining. According to the weekly crop report, 82 per cent of the 2013 hay crop cut and 60 per cent baled or put into silage. Rain was reported in some areas during the past week, which has reduced hay quality in the swath. Seventy per cent of the provincial hay crop is rated as good in quality. The majority of crops are in good to excellent condition. Eighty-four per cent of spring wheat, 82 per cent of canola, 81 per cent of lentils and 88 per cent of peas are in good to excellent condition. Across the province, topsoil moisture on crop land is rated as nine per cent surplus, 78 per cent adequate, 12 per cent short and one per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as seven per cent surplus, 80 per cent adequate and 13 per cent short. Cooler than normal temperatures during the past week slowed crop development. Crop reporters have indicated very low nighttime temperatures for this time of year. The Odessa area reported a low of 4c on July 26. Most areas continue to receive rain, which has made haying difficult. Because of heavy morning dew, cutting is usually delayed until early

afternoon. There has been some loss of hay quality in the swath due to rain. The cooler weather has allowed crops to flower longer, and if day time temperatures warm up, there is potential for good crop yields with the moisture received.Crop development ranges from heading in cereals to podding in pulses and oilseeds. Some areas are reporting very wet crop and hay land conditions and crops are showing signs of excess moisture stress. Rainfall recorded in the region ranged from nil to 29 mm (Redvers area). Topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as 17 per cent surplus, 78 per cent adequate and five per cent short. Hay land and pasture moisture is rated as 15 per cent surplus, 80 per cent adequate and five per cent short. Crop district 1A is reporting 41 per cent and 35 per cent of cropland and hay acres, respectively, have surplus topsoil moisture. Livestock producers have 73 per cent of the hay crop cut and 50 per cent has been baled or put into silage. Hay quality is rated as 11 per cent excellent, 63 per cent good and 26 per cent fair. The majority of crop damage is due to insects, wind and flooding. The Kisbey and Stoughton areas reported severe hail

Pastor Stewart returns with fresh perspectives By Norm Park Of The Mercury He is still sorting it out. Call it a self-debriefing or decompression. There are all kinds of phrases that could be used to describe what Trinity Lutheran Church Pastor Stewart Miller is going through, a few short weeks after completing the challenging 800- kilometre pilgrimage of El Camino de Santiago that took him from the borders of France to the city of Santiago de Compestela in Spain. Yes, that’s the same city that was rocked with sorrow when a rapid transit train jumped the tracks and crashed two weeks ago, killing 80 people, many of whom were probably en route to the same shrine at St. James that Miller made his way to at the end of his 31-day walk. Miller completed the entire trek, similar to the one documented in the movie The Way, which served as one of the stimulants that helped him make up his mind to take up the challenge. He said that some who make the pilgrimage don’t cover the entire distance and use several other aids, according to their needs and capabilities, but he stayed true to the demands of the 800 km or more original path, plus a few additional kilometres tacked on for good measure after discovering he had strayed off course and had to backtrack with the backpack. “It was a kind of injoke among the dedicated trekkers, they would look at the boots or shoes of the other trekkers and if they looked too new compared with ours that looked like 40 miles of bad road, we knew they were taking an alternative,” he said with a chuckle, “but we must understand everybody does their own Camino, and it ends when we come to the bones of St. James in the church.” They walk it now for some version of a Roman Catholic devotion, spiritual and/or religious need or a life-changing spiritual or physical challenge. Miller said he took on the challenge for a variety of reasons that could be described as spiritual, devotional, physical or even mid-life crisis, but by the end it was a true spiritual experience, not in the clas-

sical religious way, but rather, he said, “my whole life is a spiritual journey and this has been a part of it. “The experience of walking by yourself for large chunks of 31 days, then walking in community and living in community, does things to who you are, regardless of how religious you are at the start. There are just things that happen to your heart and your mind. “You spend a lot of time thinking about how and who you are in the world. It is a microcosm. You get some sense of yourself in somewhat broad strokes. When you set down in Camino, who you are sort of shows up and how you bounce off other people just is as clear as the light of day, because we’re all there and all in it together. “I didn’t expect the community to be as quickly developed and as intimate as it really was.” Miller said it was hard to put into words what the multi-faceted journey means to him. The physical aspect of it, the training, the conditioning, the physical challenges of the walk, take up about 20 per cent of the experience. “The rest is about walking and talking to yourself and God and walking and talking with fellow Camino people who are your family. It’s larger and more intimate than you could ever imagine.” The nature of the walk, taking in certain sections in a set period of time meant that a true family of 40 to 50 trekkers would often end up in the same location at the end of the day. He had a tendency to meet them in the evenings in the hostels. “It was a spiritual, emotional, physical community. Some days you were caring for each other’s blisters. Or other days you just walked along together because it was hot and you needed to urge each other along.” Sometimes he said, “you’d walk along and listen to stories that would break your heart.” He recorded some of these experiences in his blog that he filed when Internet conditions allowed. The experience breaks down your personal façade, he said by means of explanation. Since his return, Mill-

Rev. Stewart Miller displays one of the directional tiles that are used to help pilgrims find their way to Santiago de Compestela. er said one aspect of the pilgrimage he misses is the simplicity of the walk, something that his new friends also state in their e-mails to him since their return to daily routines. “I miss the straightforwardness of the task at hand. It was simple because we just lived together.” The guidebook the pilgrims used offered suggestions as to where they could stop over and how many kilometres might be accomplished each day, but that changed with weather and needs and sideline items that would detract walkers from time-to-time. “But we tended to be among 40 or 50 people, some would go 25 instead of 30 kilometres and then make it up the next day. So it became difficult to make it to a big city and take a day off because you wanted to get up and get going,” The community experience was powerful and as Miller added, “God speaks to people in so many different ways.” He didn’t discover the next new thing about God, but he did experience the next new thing about the church and being a pastor in the real world. “It was a privilege and challenge to be a pastor and walking the Camino,

because religion is either incredibly distasteful to people or incredibly frightening to people because of past experiences. What goes on inside those weird buildings and what the church and God is really about as Christianity expresses it. The unfortunate thing is what most people know about Christianity is what people catch in the news and articulate it. Unfortunately, that’s the West World’s Baptist version of Christianity, which is violent to people’s spirits.” He said he often heard among his fellow trekkers that if all pastors were like him, they’d go to church, but his response was always

“actually there are more people like me, you need to go and find them.” Getting lost on the trail was part of the adventure, he explained. Often a 35-kilometre expectation for a day’s trek became a 1- kilometre journey because he would take a wrong turn and then have to return. “I would be embarrassed when that happened,” he said. “It’s difficult to put into words what has gone on in my heart and head. Not because there have been any profound changes but because I just can’t put names and words to the changes. I do know I have been deeply touched by conversations

with myself, God and other people in a good way.” Miller said he expected to spend more time alone, communing with nature and himself and God and less time in the company of others. But he learned, “God was just as capable of talking to me among these people as he was in silence.” There was another clergyman who Miller became close to during the trek, but “I had some very profound conversations with 20-yearolds and 70-year-olds too. So it was across the spectrum.” He said he has achieved a stronger sense of “being pastor Stewart. It was good to be reminded by the people I talked with that people are really hungry for a connection with something bigger than themselves. “It’s exciting to know that people are looking for something, but daunting insofar as even pastors aren’t certain how to connect with them apart from this great thing. Nobody is going to connect to me to re-invigorate the church,” he said with a laugh. “But I did learn we need to make a stronger effort to be accessible. Me and the church.” Now that he’s back home in Estevan, Miller said he’s enjoying the experience of being a pastor, with new perspectives on who and what he is as well as being in the church and among friends. He said he has always found Estevan to be a wonderful, accepting community because we “still know one another. We’re going to run into one another all the time, so there isn’t any need for false impressions. It’s a true community with spirit.”

The Estevan detachment of the RCMP has set up an investigation into two break-and- enter incidents that occurred in Lampman and Bienfait during the past couple of weeks. Police noted that sometime between July 18 and 23 the Lampman Curling Club lounge was broken into with the suspects entering the facility through an improperly

secured door. They then forced their way into the lounge and the adjoining storage area and removed some products. RCMP said the physical damage to the property was limited and the value of the goods removed from the storage area has yet to be determined. Then on July 29, shortly after 11 p.m. in the 200 block of Taylor Street in Bienfait, some

“Back to School is actually a very expensive time for young families throughout the year when you are buying clothes and school supplies and still trying to make the rent.” – Lieutenant Brian Bobolo

Staples and S.A. team up on school supplies program For many kids, it’s one of their favourite events of the year — buying school supplies. However, for some families, finding the money to ensure the kids have everything they need for their education is becoming an increasingly difficult task. With that in mind, the Estevan Salvation Army and local Staples store have partnered on a promotion to help those families. Until Sept. 9, Staples is collecting donations at their store on King Street and have set a goal of raising $2,500 in 2013. Under the program, anyone making a purchase at Staples will be asked if they wish to donate to the drive. Staples will also accept supplies. In the meantime, the Salvation Army is inviting parents to come to their location and register their children. They will take the names confidentially and pass along the pertinent information to Staples who will divide the money proportionately to the children in the form of gift cards. Heather Menser, the sales manager for the Estevan Staples location, said they are excited to be involved with the Salvation Army. “They have the connections with the families that need it the most,” she said.

The Estevan Salvation Army and Staples are teaming up on a school supply program. Customers to Staples will be asked to make a donation to the program which runs until Sept. 9. From left to right: Sgt. Brian Bobolo of the Salvation Army and Heather Menser of Staples. Lieutenant Brian Bobolo of the Salvation Army said this is a much-needed program as many families in Estevan struggle to make ends meet. “Back to School is actually a very expensive time for young families throughout the year when you are buying clothes and school

supplies and still trying to make the rent,” Bobolo said. “We know that we have many food bank clients and shelter clients that have children and they are struggling in many ways, and we can only imagine that quite a few of them will be eager to take part in a program like this.”

Like anything else, the cost of school supplies are on the rise and the needs of today’s students continue to grow. Menser said a display backpack that included all the items needed for the average Grade 3 student was roughly $85. She added that as kids gets older the needs

and costs increase. “When you get into the higher grades, you’ll see the lists have definitely evolved. I have been with the company for just over six years now and the lists have evolved technology wise. Now we are seeing iPads on the list, USB drives are on the list; headphones

and things like that. “A family of four, I would say their average cart is close to $500 or $600.” This is the first year the Estevan Salvation Army and Staples have partnered on the program. However, Bobolo said the two groups have been involved on a national level for years.

CBSA warns about fraudulent vehicle import scam The Canada Border Services Agency is warning Canadians about a possible scam involving vehicle purchases. In multiple reports, an individual posing as a salesperson from a luxury car dealership in Utah tries to coerce Canadian customers into paying for a vehicle by phone or online. Customers are forwarded what appear to be emails from the CBSA to the dealer asking for an advance bill of sale and receipt prior to importation. The e-mails, on a CBSA letterhead, show a North Portal, office phone number. The public is being advised that both the e-mails and phone number are fraudulent and are in no way connected to the CBSA.

Faced with issues from the west and south, it appears Canada’s oil could soon be heading east. It was announced last week that TransCanada is proposing a massive, 4,400-kilometre pipeline that would carry 1.1 million barrels of crude oil per day to eastern Canada. According to information on the TransCanada website, the Energy East Pipleline would consist of three major components: • Converting an existing natural gas pipeline to an oil transportation pipeline; • Constructing new pipelines in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Eastern Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick to link up with the converted pipe; • Constructing the associated facilities, pump stations and tank terminals required to move crude oil from Alberta to Quebec and New Brunswick, including marine facilities

terested stakeholders such as First Nation and Métis groups, landowners, communities and provincial and federal governments. • Holding open houses and other information sessions along the proposed route. • Sharing information, gathering input and incorporating feedback. “We are very pleased with the outcome of the open season for the Energy East Pipeline held earlier this year and are excited to move forward with a major project that will bring many benefi ts across Canada,” said Russ Girling, TransCanada’s

president and chief executive officer in a press release. “This is an historic opportunity to connect the oil resources of western Canada to the consumers of eastern Canada, creating jobs, tax revenue and energy security for all Canadians for decades to come.” The creation of the Energy East line would be huge for producers in western Canada that have struggled with transporting their oil. In the release, Girling added there is an equal thirst for eastern refineries to have a sustainable product source. “Energy East is one

solution for transporting crude oil but the industry also requires additional pipelines such as Keystone XL to transport growing supplies of Canadian and U.S. crude oil to existing North American markets,” said Girling. “Both pipelines are required to meet the need for safe and reliable pipeline infrastructure and are underpinned with binding, long-term agreements.” The project is expected to cost approximately $12 billion. It is expected to be in service by late2017 for deliveries in Quebec and 2018 for deliveries to New Brunswick.

Bad decisions lead to police intervention

Poor decisions that are often fueled by the consumption of alcohol and/ or drugs often lead to not so desirable consequences. That could probably be the thoughts of several people who ended up becoming involved with the Estevan Police Service (EPS) within the past seven to 10 days according to information received by the media. On July 30 EPS members attended to the south central area of the city in response to a call regarding an assault in progress. When police arrived they observed a man attempting to leave the scene in a vehicle. The 36-yearold combatant was placed in a patrol vehicle, while the 39-year-old complainant was interviewed. The 39-year-old was suffering from a bleeding lip and said he wanted to seek medical attention before providing a statement to police so the matter was placed under investigation for a later date. An anonymous call to police led to the arrest of a 38-year-old woman for impaired driving and driving while over .08. She has a Sept. 30 court date. Several calls regarding a stray dog in a number of neighbourhoods in the city on July 30 led to police patrols in an attempt to spot the stray animal but police were unable to locate it. On Aug. 1 EPS members attended to a twovehicle collision in the Hillside area of the city. One vehicle needed to be towed from the scene. A 32-year-old woman was charged with proceeding from a stop sign before it was safe to do so. That same night police conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle being driven by a 20-year-old subject who was charged with impaired driving and for being in breach of a probation order. He has a September court date. Police also responded

to a call coming from a local lounge involving a fight in progress, but when they arrived the incident had ended but several patrons were removed from the scene to ensure the safety and security of others. An alcohol infused domestic dispute in the southeast area of the city ended up with police intervention on Aug. 2. The loud dispute led to the removal of a woman from the residence and she was subsequently released into the care of her mother who attended the police headquarters to help resolve the matter. Another domestic disturbance in an apartment complex was responded to by police that same night. A heated argument in an apartment had spilled out onto the street. When police arrived, neither party was willing to provide a statement or proceed with charges so no further policing action could be taken. An erratic driver on the east side of the city attracted police attention that evening as well. The 27-year-old operator of the vehicle refused to provide a breath sample so he was charged accordingly. While on patrol police officers noted an altercation in the parking lot of a local hotel. The two men were observed rolling on the ground. When police broke them apart the two suggested they were simply horsing around but during the interview a police officer recognized one of the men as being a person who would be in breach of court-ordered conditions, which included non-consumption of alcohol or attendance at a place where the primary purpose is the sale of alcohol. He was taken into custody and released later following an appearance before a justice of peace. Another Aug. 3 incident involved the arrest

of a 21-year-old man for being in possession of 30 grams or less of a controlled drug. Another incident involved the arrest of a 28-year-old woman who admitted to consuming a controlled drug before driving. She was charged with impaired driving. The next call to police involved a complaint regarding a woman who had been beaten. When police attended to the east side residence they located the victim who claimed her boyfriend had hit her and during the altercation her purse, containing her medication had gone missing. The male subject involved in the fracas was located a short distance from the scene. Police noted that both subjects appeared to be intoxicated and when questioned by police, both refused to co-operate so they were taken into custody and lodged in cells until regaining sobriety. During that same shift police observed a man who was standing in the middle of Second Avenue relieving himself. He was taken into custody, charged with being intoxicated in public and lodged in cells for the rest of the night. Police next attended to a fight outside a local lounge that involved some male subjects. The combatants were separated and

advised to make their way home. One man entered a cab and left the scene while the other walked away but was then seen returning to the area through a back corner of the bar. He was being followed by security personnel. The man was loud and abusive so he was placed under arrest, charged with being intoxicated in public and lodged in cells until sober. On Aug. 2 police were advised that when two vehicles were passing on Fourth Street a bottle was hurled from a dark coloured vehicle that broke the windshield of the passing pickup truck. An investigation into the incident has been opened. EPS members then received a call from St. Joseph’s Hospital regarding a difficult patient who had walked into the facility and proceeded to act in a very aggressive manner. Police remained on the scene while the patient was examined and then took the subject into their care for a trip to Weyburn where arrangements were made to see an attending doctor. The next stop for police on Aug. 3 was at a loud party at an apartment. This time charges under the local bylaw were levied against the apartment owner since it was noted that previous warnings had

ing with his roommate. The man stated he had no safe place to go for the remainder of the evening so he too, was lodged in cells and an investigation was started. Two motorists contacted police on Aug. 4 complaining that their vehicle’s air bags had deployed when they hit a pothole on Souris Avenue north. One vehicle was still drivable while the other needed to be towed from the site. A disturbance at a local lounge attracted police attention that same night. Two people were removed from the premises with one of them being charged with being intoxicated in a public place while the other was sent on his way. Unfortunately, he decided to return to the scene and became argumentative with police personnel. He was repeatedly instructed to leave the scene but refused to do so. This left police with their only alternative, an arrest and charges for being intoxicated in public and a night spent in cells.

been issued at that address and police had received several calls regarding the loud music. Another noisy party complaint was tended to by police. In this instance the party was slowly wound down and no further policing action was required. Three men were caught on a surveillance recording destroying a sign at a local fast food outlet. The three men were spoke to about their actions and the investigation continues with the assistance of the surveillance recording. A man in an intoxicated state was observed by police passed out beside a dumpster. After he was awakened by police it was determined that there was no one in a responsible position to turn him over to so he was lodged in cells until sober. While this process was being completed a bloody and intoxicated man arrived at the police station advising people he had been in a fight with another man while drink-

Grube marches back to win Classic The Woodlawn Classic couldn’t have ended in more dramatic fashion. After opening the tournament on Saturday with a two-under par 70, Marcus Friess began the final round with a four shot lead over Brendon Grube. Grube bogeyed the 11th hole to fall five shots back with only seven holes to play. The comeback may have seemed insurmountable, but Grube kept hitting the shots he needed. Over the next six holes he chipped away at Friess’ lead until he stood two back of Friess on the 18th tee. “It was one of those things where I knew where I was the whole round. I was struggling. I didn’t make any birdies. I knew I had to make eagle on 18 to tie him, and I was lucky enough to get the putt to go,” said Grube. After the tee shots, Grube hit his approach on the par-5 18th hole with a 7-iron and left himself just 10 feet for the eagle putt. He said he didn’t feel much pressure standing over the putt on 18. Playing in the horse race the day before, with a couple hundred eyes watching every shot, he said was certainly more nervewracking. “Playing the horse race last night, you got a couple hundred people watching you, so you get used to that pressure pretty quick. I knew I had to make it so I just wanted to put a good stroke on it,” he said. “My hat’s off to him,”

said Friess. “That was an amazing shot. He hit his second shot to six or seven feet or something like that. That’s a wicked shot to that island green. I can’t say that I played too safe because I had a two-shot lead on the tee box. I just thought, you know what, make a par. If he’s going to beat you, he’s going to beat you.” With Friess parring the final hole, Grube’s ensuing pressure putt sent the two golfers back to the first tee for a one-hole playoff. Both tee shots were wayward, ending up in the right rough. Friess was away but didn’t hit his approach cleanly and left it a few yards short of the green. The advantage went to Grube, but his approach also came up short. “After he hit his short, all I was thinking was ‘get it onto the green.’ Obviously, I hit the same shot as him. I hit it a little fat. I drew a good lie on that chip shot, so I was lucky in that aspect,” said Grube. Friess hit his chip first but left it well short of the front pin location, just eking it onto the green. Grube then played a good pitch shot out of the rough to about three feet. He rolled it in, capping off the big comeback after Friess missed his par putt. “It just wasn’t really there for me today. I’m not striking the ball that well. Basically, all that I had this weekend was a hot putter,” said Friess after Sunday’s round. “That was with me today, but the putts yester-

day were for birdie, and today they were for pars.” In Saturday’s horse race, starting with all 12 golfers who made the championship fl ight, one was eliminated after each hole as the golfers play a match play against the field on the front nine. When it came to the ninth and final hole, it was Grube and Friess squaring off. While Grube got the best of Friess on Sunday, it was Friess who staved off defeat in the horse race. For him, that was consolation enough. “Since I was 16 years old, all I ever wanted to do was win the horse race,” Friess said. “That was a pretty big deal for me. It’s my favourite part about this weekend. It’s just a lot of fun to be out there in front of everybody to hear the roars and cheers.” Rounding out the

championship flight was Joel Bevington in third and Anthony Melle in fourth. Melle fi nished two shots back of Cody Balon, who was disqualified after ad-

mitting to signing an incorrect scorecard. Winning the senior championship flight was Terry Rohatyn, who would have tied both Grube and

Friess had he been playing in the premier men’s flight. Clark McClelland finished second in the senior division, followed by Monte Ellington.

Brendon Grube came from behind Sunday to capture the Woodlawn Classic.

On Saturday, Marcus Friess did what he’s wanted to do since he was 16, win the Woodlawn Classic horse race. He stands with the trophy, presented to him by Amanda Minchin.

Brendon Grube is this year’s winner of the Woodlawn Classic, beating Marcus Friess by one stroke in a playoff.

No peewee team for EMF this year As they gear up for a new season, Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football will be without one of its teams this fall. The organization will not be fielding a peewee team, due to low registration. That means EMF will only have the bantam Steelers and atom Miners this season. Minor football president Steve McLellan said he isn’t sure why the numbers for the peewee Chargers dropped. “We’d love to know the reason ourselves, but it does appear to be cyclical. We have pretty strong numbers above, really strong numbers below,” said McLellan, who has coached the Chargers the

last few years. “I think with the spotlight on concussions these days, there’s a generation gap there maybe. We gotta focus on keeping the kids we’ve got and keeping them for next year.” Although the pool of players at the atom level continues to grow, McLellan said it wasn’t feasible to use atom players to help form a peewee team. “It would’ve made for a very, very young Chargers team. We’d be hard-pressed. When you do that … I don’t think it helps at the Miners’ level either.” The older peewee players will move up and suit up with the Steelers this year.

“The younger kids that are more timid and not ready to move up yet, we’re going to allow them to participate and become atom Miners. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to play in any of the games,” he said. EMF is hoping to arrange some exhibition games for the peewee players. “We pushed it absolutely as long as we could, hoping we could find more kids. We had a pretty extensive advertising campaign including newspapers, digital ads around town and social media.” Suddenly without a team to coach, McLellan will help out with the Miners this year. That team has a

new head coach, with Wanda Harron taking over the reins this season. Phil Zajac will again be at the helm for the Steelers. Meanwhile, work continues at Dana Quewezance Memorial Field inside the Woodlawn Regional Park. EMF’s season opener, with both teams playing, is Aug. 24. The day will be complete with games, family activities and a barbecue, with the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ game against Edmonton being shown inside the Souris Valley Theatre. The festivities will wrap up with a party in the park cabaret featuring Wonderland and Chris Henderson.

“The buildings are coming along. We still have a bit of work to do, but our goal is to be done by the 24th. The field is in pretty good shape. Adult soccer, I believe, is already playing on it. We’re babying it as much as we can, but it should be good to go,” McLellan said. He added that work is being done inside the concession building, although it may not look like it from the outside. A new scoreboard still needs to be erected. McLellan said it was hoped that the lights could be installed by the 24th, but “it’s a little lower in priority than the buildings.” With EMF being unable to use the field for the

last two years after the 2011 flooding, McLellan said he can’t wait to be back. “I don’t think there’s too many people that are as excited about it as I am. Ever since it happened in the spring of 2011, I’ve been looking forward to this day. “I’m kinda getting tired and worn out now, but hopefully it gets done and we’ll be good to go. I believe we’ve been able to reach our goal of not only returning to where it was, but I think it’ll be in better condition than it was.” Minor football practices got underway last night at Chow Field. Registrations are still being accepted, but people are encouraged to do that as soon as possible.

Bruins hold fitness testing for players

The Estevan Bruins are keeping their players accountable when it comes to physical fitness. The SJHL club held fitness testing for players on Thursday at Spectra Place, with on and office tests taking place to determine strength and conditioning. Bruins head coach and general manager Chris Lewgood said the sessions included the vertical jump, standing broad jump, bench press, core testing with curl-ups and the beep test. On the ice, the players worked on sprints and agility with and without the puck. Thursday’s testing served as a baseline for each of the roughly 20 players for further improvement. “At this point, it’s not about what they’ve done till now, it’s more about what we’re going to do going forward. It’s humbling

for some of these guys. Some of these guys that consider themselves big, strong guys are finding out that they’re not so strong after all, not productive strength, anyway,” said Lewgood. “Going forward, we’re going to advocate to them that they gotta learn how to use their strengths in a productive manner and build the appropriate muscles and be fit for hockey. We’re surrounded by all sorts of good people who can help with that. “ To d a y ’s D a y 1 . We’re not really keeping score yet, but today’s the baseline and we’ll grow from here and hopefully see improvement every time we do this.” Lewgood said he was happy with the player turnout, with some coming from the U.S., Alberta and Manitoba. “It’s just a baseline, so I’m not putting too much

emphasis on it, but I’m actually very impressed with some of the smaller guys and how fit they are and how strong some of them actually are. The days of discriminating against small hockey players are long past, but that being said, it’s nice to see

the smaller guys can keep up in the heavy going with some of these other guys. That’s one thing that stands out to me,” Lewgood noted. Team scout Cole Zahn and former player Matt Dochylo helped Lewgood monitor the testing.

Dochylo, who played his last season in 2011-12, will be working with the team in a yet-to-be-determined capacity this year. Lewgood said the 21-year-old will bring important attributes from his playing career to the table.

“He leads by example. He’s a guy that, when he was playing in the league, players looked up to his work ethic and he’s just a good role model for the guys. We gotta make sure we surround our group with positive leaders, and he’s definitely that.”

The Estevan Bruins held a day of fitness testing for returning players and those hoping to crack the roster this year on Thursday. Among those in attendance were Lynnden Pastachak (left) and veteran defenceman David Robertson.

“That would be the logical place for it,” he said, noting that the facility will include more than just the track, with long jump, shot put and all other necessary facilities required to host the Games. If the Games are awarded, the second phase of the project will include a building onsite as well, which would be used for change rooms. “With the Summer Games coming into place is where I believe our revenues would come for that,” said Senchuk. “We need to get the track in place first and then we’ll worry about the rest of it.” The engineering study is to be completed as quickly as possible, with the committee wanting a commitment from all parties by early September. That will give the committee a month to prepare their bid for submission at the start of October. “The only thing that we are missing is a track-and-field facility, and of course, not having that will prevent us from being awarded the Games. That’s an obstacle in our way. If we can deal with that, whether we’re awarded the Games this time or next time, for other bids going forward it’s not going to be an obstacle.”

Jacobs toured the track area outside the Estevan Comprehensive School prior to the meeting and told the committee Estevan has a great location for a multi-purpose track-and-field complex. The committee is now commissioning a full engineering study, which will provide an estimate of what it would cost to rebuild the track at ECS. “You need to know exactly what the soil and drainage conditions are prior to building a track. Building a track without proper drainage is not a long-term investment,” Jacobs told the committee. The engineering study will give everyone an idea of what it will cost to complete the facility. “The key is if we’re going to do it, we better do it right,” said Senchuk. “It’s going to have an indefinite life and an indefinite impact on Estevan, for sure.” There has already been an economic impact assessment looking at the future track and it provided the committee with a very positive outlook. “It shows great impact for Estevan. That’s encouraging. I think, overall, it would be a good thing for Estevan to do,” added Senchuk. The facility at ECS is an aging one, and the committee will be looking at three proposals with varying levels of rubber quality for the track. Senchuk said that is one of the biggest determining factors and noted the parties involved will likely be looking at something in the middle. He added they aren’t looking to host the Olympics. “But we also realize that we’re deserving of something that’s going to be nice, too.” There are a number of partnerships that will be necessary to complete the project, including connections with municipal government and the school boards. If everything goes as planned, the goal is to have the new facility installed by 2015. The dimensions for the proposed track will be a little different than what is already at the school, but Senchuk said because the grounds are perfect for their needs, the plan is to lay the new track overtop of the of the existing one.

The Estevan bid to host the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games is in need of one final ingredient to ensure it’s a contender for the event: an updated track-and-field facility. At a meeting held July 29, the committee was informed that the biggest thing holding the bid back was the track facility. The meeting, co-chaired by committee members Brian Smith and Josh Leblanc, was called to bring all of the interested parties to one table to explain the process involved in bidding to host the Saskatchewan Summer Games in 2016. Attending the meeting was the City of Estevan, RM of Estevan, South East Cornerstone School Division, Holy Family Roman Catholic School Division and the Estevan Legion Track and Field Club. They were updated on the work that has been done so far as well as the work that remains in order to have the bid document completed by the Oct. 1 deadline. Smith presented the locations of the sport venues that will be used if Estevan is successful in obtaining the Games. “We have phenomenal sport facilities in Estevan and Woodlawn Regional Park,” said Smith in a press release issued by the committee. “The only thing that will prevent us from obtaining the Games is the lack of a certified trackand-field complex.” Estevan Bid Committee co-chair Brian Senchuk spoke to the Mercury earlier this week and made it clear the facility will be coming whether Estevan receives the Games this time around or not. If the city doesn’t host in 2016, the facility will certainly help attract the sporting event for any future bids. “We’re going to be very aggressive in getting it done,” said Senchuk. To address the lack of track and field facilities, the committee brought in track and field building experts Ken Jacobs of the engineering firm of Genivar and John Konihowski of Jones-Konihowski Enterprises Ltd., who specialize in the installation of tracks. “We’re going to look at three proposals that the track people are going to present to us,” added Senchuk.

Travis Hagen takes the high road, and Riley Emmel cuts inside as the drivers exit turn 4 at the Estevan Motor Speedway on July 30.

Turnbull wins again at Speedway Late models put on a show for fans N o t s u r p r i s i n g l y, Aaron Turnbull got hot at exactly the right time. The red-hot local driver continued his recent streak on July 30, winning the modified feature at Estevan Motor Speedway. Turnbull started seventh, grabbed the lead less than 10 laps in, and never gave it up. He has now won four of the last five events at the Speedway, including the track’s stop on the Dakota Classic Modifi ed Tour last month — not to mention winning the tour itself. Tuesday’s show also featured a visit from the WISSOTA late models class, always a fan favourite. A total of 13 drivers ran in that category, with Pat Doar of New Richmond, Wisc., winning the feature. Turnbull said he knew he had the goods to win his third points feature of the year at EMS. “I knew after the heat

race my car was working so good. I just had to be patient and kinda let the race come to me. My car was working so good, I knew it was just a matter of time til I got to the front. Stay out of trouble and keep all the tires on it, and it worked out good.” The feature was punctuated by a significant crash about seven laps in, when then-leader Travis Peery lost control on the third turn, spinning around into the path of several drivers, including Les McLenehan and Ed Turnbull. The eventual winner wasn’t far from the collision, but managed to avoid it, and it was clear sailing from there, as there was nary a yellow flag for the rest of the race. After taking the lead, Turnbull held off Lampman’s Kody Scholpp and Williston’s Jason Wolla late in the race. “I didn’t know how close (Scholpp) was. I knew

Kody was running good. I saw him a couple of times there once I got in the lead. He got around Wolla there. I saw him get up beside me once, so I kinda tried to pick the best line and drove as hard as I could,” said Turnbull. In the stock car feature, Bienfait’s Geoff Mann picked up his first win of the year. Mann started in sixth position and took the lead before the halfway point of the race. Rocky Alexander challenged for top spot later in the race, but Mann kept his distance and won the race by a comfortable margin. “We put a lot of work into the car, we’ve tried different setups,” said Mann. “I really gotta give a thanks to my brother for helping me out with this one here. I really like it. The car was really good. “We’ve been really close all year, top fours and stuff like that. A few me-

chanical issues have taken us out and bad wrecks on the track. Overall, it’s been a pretty good year. It’s a good feeling to get this one.” Mann said he “just waited for the openings” to get to the front, and once that happened, he more or less cruised to the end. “Once I got into the groove that I wanted to be in, I didn’t have any cars to hold me up or anything. The car just drove nice. I was waiting for somebody to peek underneath me, but it was nice to not have anybody peek their nose in there. “Rocky, he’s a hard guy to beat. He runs pretty good. I’ve been chasing him for a little while, and we’ve got a bit of a rivalry going on at times, but all in all, Rocky and I tend to race pretty clean together,” Mann said. In the hobby stock feature, Brandon Beeter returned to the top, winning his fourth race of the year at EMS. Brad King led for the bulk of the race, with Brandon and Brock Beeter among the challengers behind him. With three laps left, Beeter snuck past him

and there appeared to be some contact, taking King out of the race. Track conditions were a factor for the second straight race program, due to all the rain the area has received lately. Still, Turnbull said he was happy with the way track officials prepared the surface. “It was tough. The track

was very physical. They did an awesome job with it, for as much rain as we had. It turned out better than I thought it was going to. The track was really good.” There are only two points nights left in the EMS season, with the next coming on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Championship night is on Aug. 23.

Crunch time for EMS drivers in contention Drivers with their eye on a season championship at Estevan Motor Speedway only have two points nights left to stake their claim. It has been a much better year for the Speedway weather-wise, with no rainouts so far, compared to the four straight to start the year in 2012. Whereas last year the season champions were determined from a smaller sample size, racers have had plenty of opportunities to show their stuff this season. Speaking of showing their stuff, Aaron Turnbull has been doing exactly that lately. The Estevan driver seems to have mastered the art of finding his groove midway through the season, just before the Dakota Classic Modified Tour. He got off to a slow start at EMS this year: in the first four race nights, he only finished twice and only had one top-10 finish. After that, it was like Turnbull flipped a switch. His streak began with a win in the McComb Automotive Fast 40 on June 15. He then won the feature on June 28, and we all know what happened after that — he earned his first career tour championship, including a win in Estevan on July 8. Turnbull didn’t slow down after that, finishing third on July 20 and winning July 30. He has now won four of the last five programs at the Speedway. Despite all that, he remains five points behind his father Ed entering Friday’s races. Although Ed hasn’t won in Estevan this year, an

three-time defending champion Rocky Alexander, who had a very slow start adjusting to a new car, is 28 behind. Mann won the season opener on May 4 and has mostly driven well, although he’s cooled off lately, finishing 15th, seventh and eighth on the last three points nights, respectively. But he has four top-three finishes, including the win. Mann has been one of the top drivers in the stock class for awhile, and it will come as no surprise if he takes the championship. In the hobby stock class, we know someone named Beeter will win the season title, it’s just a matter of which one. Brandon and Brock Beeter have simply dominated the track this year. Brandon has four wins and Brock has three. There have only been two nights where neither of them won, and both of them were claimed by Brad King, who is based of out the same garage. Brock currently leads the standings with 341 points, and Brandon is five back. King is out of it, sitting 46 points behind. It’s looking like none of last year’s season champions will repeat, and while that’s too bad for them, it’s healthy for the track when different people are winning.

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out impressive streak of four straight second-place finishes early in the year has him atop the modified standings at 272 points. The patriarch of the racing family has cooled off, though. In the last three races, he has only finished once, that being a ninth-place showing. That, combined with Aaron’s hot streak, has the two neck-and-neck with a pair of programs left. If Aaron continues to scorch the rest of the field, he has an excellent shot at the title. Riley Emmel, who has won his first two career features this year and come close a couple of other times, is only nine points behind. Kody Scholpp is 16 back and Ryan Harris trails by 19. The stock car championship might be the least exciting chase over the next two weeks. That’s because local driver Gregg Mann holds a commanding 23-point lead over Lampman’s Alvin Dube. Dustin Byler is 27 back and

Olson joins southeast contingent at MSU The Estevan Bruins’ top scorer this past season will be taking his talents to Minot in the fall when he starts at the Minot State University. Last week, Cole Olson committed to the Beavers who are coming off an American Collegiate Hockey Association national championship when they beat the Lindenwood University Lions 9-5 in a final in Chicago on March 6. Olson played three full seasons with the Bruins from 2010 to 2013 and scored 46 goals and 122 points in 168 games with the club. Cole Zahn, Bruins assistant coach for the past two seasons, said is it Olson’s compete level that will help him adjust to the university game. “I think he’s going to be a heck of a player for them. He’s the type of guy who gives his all every time he’s at the rink,” said Zahn.

“You know exactly what you’re going to get when he’s on the ice and when he’s in the room.” The Beavers have a history with players from the Estevan Bruins and the southeast area, with former Bruin Brody Haygarth on the team as well as Ryan Curzon and Riley Hengen, both Estevan products. Olson has further ties to the university with his older brother Mitch starting at first base for the school’s baseball team. Zahn noted there is a transition all junior players can expect when they move to the university level, but he feels Olson will be able to adjust without too much trouble. “The biggest thing for him is he’s going to go out there and find out pretty quick that moving from junior to the university level there are going to be some bigger, stronger players. Playing junior you are

against some bigger guys but the strength alone is going to be a big difference for him. He’s probably going to get pushed around a little bit but the thing for him is he does use his body pretty well and protects the puck pretty well.” Despite Olson’s size, Zahn said once he gets comfortable he will be able to bring a lot of great qualities to the organization. “The biggest thing with him is his playmaking ability. He’s not the biggest guy,

but he goes out there and he sees the ice so well. He can make plays that you don’t see in a lot of players.” Olson’s work ethic is what sets him apart, Zahn added, and that will serve him well at the collegiate level. “He’s a hardworking guy, and I think a lot of players will learn a lot from him, just with his work effort alone,” he said. “He’s very good with the puck and he skates so well. He puts himself in

good position and he just has great vision on the ice. He’s just a great player, a great person, and they’re very lucky to have a player like him.”

Riders need to prove they’re top team After what was presumably a productive bye week, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are back at work these days getting ready for Friday’s first-place showdown at the Calgary Stampeders. Each one of the Roughriders had his own plans for the rare week off in the summer, not the least of which were receiver Chris Getzlaf, who got married in southern California, and defensive lineman Keith Shologan who, along with his bride, welcomed a bouncing baby boy to the Rider Nation. Great timing! Mostly, the time off reminded us that there is life outside of football in this beautiful province, but before we got too attached to the outdoors, it was time to get back to the stadium. Most onlookers were fixated on the status of star quarterback Darian Durant who missed the team’s last game, a 32-20 win over Hamilton in Guelph July 27, with a foot sprain. Clearly the bye came at an ideal time for Durant, who took the opportunity to sneak away to his off-season home in Atlanta and rest that banged up right foot. Time heals all wounds and although we likely won’t be told how much that foot truly has recovered, it’s a safe bet Durant will be back behind centre for Friday’s game under the lights at McMahon Stadium. Drew Tate has already been tabbed the starter for Calgary. What a statement it was that the Riders were able to knock off the Ticats with back-up quarterback Drew Willy and seemingly not miss a beat. One of Rider fans’ greatest fears going into the season was that the Riders would be sunk if Durant went down for an extended time, but Willy has laid those fears to rest. He was also able to extend the Riders’ league record streak of games without an offensive turnover to five games and counting. Ho hum. And did we mention tailback Kory Sheets is off to the greatest start by a tailback in CFL history? He’s making it look easy and has gone out of his way to credit his offensive line, which he’s termed the “Green Wall of Regina”. He’s also bought them weekly burger and fries lunches for helping him to five straight 100+yard rushing games. However, now comes the biggest test. They’re not too fond of the Roughriders in Calgary,

Rod Pedersen Rider Insider and Friday night’s encounter surely is the marquee game of the CFL season so far. The 5-0 Riders against the 4-1 Stamps? It’s an instant classic. Saskatchewan will either leave the stadium with a win, a healthy advantage over Calgary in the standings and obvious supremacy over their top rivals (they spanked the Stamps 38-21 in Week 2) OR, with a loss, they would be tied with the Stampeders for first after the season’s opening third and would likely have a pile of questions to answer.

Don’t forget it was a Week 4 match-up in Calgary last season in which the Riders blew a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter that touched off a five-game losing streak. They never truly recovered from it and ultimately lost 36-30 to the Stampeders in the West Division semifinal. Coach Corey Chamblin needs to ensure this doesn’t happen again but the Green & White has shown a remarkable ability to “finish” as of late. They’re a much better team than last year at this time. Chamblin and GM Brendan Taman also say they identified during the bye week, a few areas where there’s room for improvement despite the club’s 5-0 start. Nothing is glaring, but perhaps the team’s slow starts and propensity for giving up aerial yards were singled out. They’re splitting hairs at this point, but clearly the team wants to steer clear of complacency. However, should they improve to 6-0 Friday night and tie a franchise record for their best start ever, then this club will truly be on its way.

Local pro wins senior championship Estevan was well represented at the Saskatchewan PGA Championship last week, when TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club pro Brian Dueck played his way to first place in the senior division. Playing at the Cooke Municipal Golf Course in Prince Albert, Dueck played against a field of 44 golfers. Along with his senior victory, he captured second place overall with his 144 through two rounds. In all, he walked away with a $2,250 paycheque.

“I don’t know if it was what was going right and what was going wrong. I played a couple solid rounds of golf and hung in there,” he said. Dueck put himself in good position after the first round on July 29, posting a one-under 70. It tied him for the low round of the day with Jeff Chambers of the Elmwood Golf Club. Chambers would go onto to shoot a 68 on the second day and finish first, but Dueck kept himself in contention with a solid round of 74.

– Joel Henderson

Poor Nameless Boy, Estevan’s Joel Henderson, released his first album earlier this year. Above, Henderson performs at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum’s 35th anniversary at the art gallery in June.

Henderson keeps things local for first album He may be a poor nameless boy, but he’s well known in Estevan and Joel Henderson recently took the next big step in his musical career after releasing his debut album The Activity Book. Henderson performs under the moniker Poor Nameless Boy and recorded the album right in Estevan. The Activity Book was recorded at Sector One Sound and produced by Sandon Weber, a rig worker who now runs the recording studio in Estevan. Henderson previously released an EP titled Sleep it Through, and Weber produced that as well. Henderson noted the process between the EP and the album were different for him. Sleep it Through consisted of some songs he had ready but they weren’t meant to be part

of one final piece. While they are all separate of one another, Henderson said producing the album required fitting each track together into one polished work. “When I finished four or five songs that I liked and knew were going to be on the album, then it was about writing songs that I felt completed the album,” he said. Looking at the content of the songs he had helped realize what he still needed to flesh out the album fully. “The goal was making an album, not just making a bunch of songs. (I wanted to) make an album that sounded complete when you listened to it all the way through, something that ended well and something that started. One thing I learned about an album is giving it time

to breathe,” he said. After recording, he realized that the next day, listening to the track he didn’t hear what he wanted to hear. He found that it might take two months from the original recording before new ideas came forward to make songs pop a little more. With the recording beginning in October 2012 and running to March, there was plenty of time for reflection. “It’s like you’re holding a secret that not many people care about,” joked Henderson about sitting on songs that had been recorded for months. Henderson is now living in Regina but remains connected to the Estevan community. The step up from an EP to an album was one Henderson was happy to do, even if it wasn’t necessarily what he planned.

“It was nice to be able to have something as distinguished as an album sound. For an EP it’s a little taste, but for a full album it’s like this is what he sounds like. It’s more definitive, and it puts a stamp on your performance and your character and what you write about,” said Henderson. “At the time I put out the EP, I was satisfied. I have aspirations and goals, but musically it has always been to take what I feel is there. If I see an opportunity great, but I was prepared to leave it as a four song EP.” After his first recordings, he didn’t see himself as a full-time or professional musician. Music, however, has been a big part of Henderson’s life and in his family. He received a $10,000 grant from Rawlco Radio to

record, and thought if he had that money available to him, he better get something down on tape. “I was feeling out what the next step would be, and I applied for this one significant grant,” said Henderson, and with that being sufficient to record a complete album, he immediately went to work. The proceeds from the first single off his new album went to Compassion Canada. “It was almost like a little reminder to myself of how blessed I am to be able to make music. If I am going to do this I can’t forget how blessed I am to be able to even consider music as a career.” He said he felt that if this was going to be his first album he wanted to start by giving. Henderson continues to spread the Poor Name-

less Boy name as he tries to connect with new audiences through his personal stories. “As a songwriter you try to tell stories that people understand, and when people know you better, it’s easier to tell those stories.” Henderson is continuing to write. “This summer has been pretty creative. As an artist you get opportunities to play, you get opportunities to create and each one has a season,” said Henderson. The season for shows will come more in the fall, as he said there are more appearances lined up for later in the year. He performed at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum for their 35th anniversary bash in June. He will be back in the fall to again play at the EAGM.

Pool C Trip: Kellie Choma

This week I would like to introduce you to a very gracious lady, Leona Selk. Leona is in charge of the entertainment committee. She leads us on July 1 and Nov. 11 celebrations. She enjoys playing cards and is a friend to all. Below, Leona shares her story: On Nov. 2, 1924 I was born in a small country farmhouse at Brownlee, Sask. My grandmother, a midwife, delivered me. When I was 17, a ruptured appendix put me in Moose Jaw hospital for 28 days. It was than I decided to go into Nurse Training because of the wonderful nursing care that I had received as a patient. In 1943, I, along with 20 other students, entered the three-year nursing course at Moose Jaw General Hospital — now the Union Hospital. In 1945 and 1946 we had many soldiers returning from the Second World War. They were hospitalized with boils, malnutrition and other illnesses. Some were sent to Fort Son with tuberculosis. Only 11 of our class graduated in 1946. Following grad I accepted a nursing position in North Battleford. Taking my trunk up to the train station, a lady I did not know walked up to me asking where I was going.

I told her and she said “Why don’t you go to Lampman? They need a nurse and you work one on one with the doctor so you learn a lot and they have to be nice to you since you are the only help they have.” She persuaded me to phone Lampman where I was accepted. They wired North Battleford and cancelled my acceptance. I moved to Lampman in November 1946. I met my husband in 1947. He had spent five years overseas with the tank core travelling across Europe and into Germany. He saw much malnutrition and misery. We married in 1948 and raised 7 children on a farm. Four of my girls were nurses, and I have a grandson with a medical degree, he owns his own clinic in Saskatoon. I also have a granddaughter and daughter-in-law who are registered nurses and have a granddaughter wanting to go into training. I was active in my profession for 30 years – 20 in Estevan in the children’s ward. My husband passed away in 1998. I spent 4 years in Moose Jaw and then moved to Trinity Tower in 2004. By September I’ll have 20 great grandchildren, all healthy. Thank you, God. Leona Selk Until next time, God bless and keep smiling.

Thank you

In loving memory of our Mom,Grandma,Katherine(Kay), who passed away 24 years ago on August 6,1989 I read of a man who stood to speak At a funeral of a friend He referred to the dates on her tombstone, From the beginning to the end. He noted that first came the date of birth And spoke the following date with tears, But he said what matters most all, Was the dash between the years. For that dash represents all the time That she spent alive on earth, And now only those who loved her Know what that little dash is worth. For it matters not how much we own, The cars, the house, the cash, What matters is how we live and love, And how we spend our dash.

Matt Gibney, who the Estevan Bruins acquired in a recent trade with the Camrose Kodiaks, faces a shot during the Bruins on-ice session Thursday night.

Creighton Lodge news Judy Pratt Creighton Lodge Correspondent Hello from the residents and staff of Creighton Lodge. We have finished our lamenting and are trying to cajole our flowers and plants into growing again after the horrible hail storm we were hit with this month. We had the most lush, colourful flower and vegetable gardens growing all around the Lodge and in 10 minutes it was anything but lush and colourful. Wow, Mother Nature sure puts you in your place when you get too pompous and proud! We had an anonymous donation to help finish the brickwork and flower beds in the front of the building, so we are quite excited about getting that finished. We can hardly believe it but it was three years ago on July 1 that the RMs of Estevan, Bienfait, Cambria, Cymri and Benson took over ownership and management of Creighton Lodge from the health region. So to mark this occasion, we had a big barbecue on July 4 for the residents and guests, staff, volunteers and committee members. We had an awesome turn out and beautiful weather. Freddie and the Freebies entertained after the meal, which was very fitting as they have been entertaining here for

years and are one of the most committed groups to Creighton Lodge. July has been a bit quieter on the entertainment front. Some of our regulars take a welldeserved summer break from singing and playing. We are happy that some don’t though! We certainly have enjoyed the music of the Happy Wanderers, Freddie and the Freebies, Bob Olson, Mel Herman and Doreen Sanderson. Dwight Thompson was kind to entertain us on our birthday party night, and we also had a chance to listen to the melodious voice of Josh Pele. We wish Josh all the best as he furthers his schooling. We were also pleasantly surprised to have an afternoon of old time music by Kevin and Scott, the actors/singers from the Souris Valley Theatre play, I Love You, Your Perfect, Now Change. The residents were all abuzz after they left. After reading this you are probably wondering, if that was a quiet month, what is a busy month like? Well, the residents of Creighton Lodge love music and love to be entertained so there isn’t such a thing as too much. If anyone in our reading audience would like to come and spend an afternoon or evening singing or playing an instrument for us, please call the office and make a date. We will

make room for all of you. We continued with a few days a week of exercise this month. Audrey Dupuis and Monica MacKenzie came to do our routines with us and we thank them very much. A lot of us are outside walking around the property to get some more exercise. We exercised our voices with our choir practices on Wednesdays. We have about 11 members now and are building up quite a repertoire. We think we sound pretty good! Bingo still happens on Wednesday evenings with either Joan Wock, Marlene Grube, Frank deBoth or Sara Saigeon calling out the numbers. Thank you to all of these people for helping out – we bingo players don’t like to miss a week, you know! We also have enjoyed our visits from our canine friends on Wednesday when Christina Wock brings her puppies for dog therapy. Maybe some of you have noticed that the paint looks like it is peeling off the outside of the building? Well, we’re peeling it off! We have a few students who have been scraping, picking and pulling at the stucco to remove some of the old paint so we can repaint it, plus the window trim. We have the arduous job of painting all the trim on all the windows on the north and south side of the building after

the roof overhangs get removed. We are looking for volunteers to help us so if you are someone who likes to paint, please feel free to come in and see us. Many hands make light work, as they say. We said so long to long-time resident, Anita Whitman this month as she will be moving into a nursing home soon. Anita holds the record at Creighton Lodge for reading the most books in a month and the Estevan Library can attest to that! We’ll miss her quiet ways and interesting conversations. Best of luck, Anita. We’d also like to commend all the Creighton Lodge staff for their kindness, loyalty and hard work that we witness every day. From the people who cook the food to the people who fix the leaks, we want to say thank you! It takes special people to work with seniors and we are blessed at the Lodge to have found them. T h a t ’s a l l f o r o u r July news. Cherish each moment you have with your friends and family and get the most out of this wonderful summer weather. Please feel free to spend a few minutes in the front yard of Creighton Lodge and enjoy the array of colourful flowers that did not give up after the hail storm. We are truly thankful for all we have at Creighton Lodge.

Online licencing system now operational Saskatchewan’s new online automated Hunting, Trapping and Angling Licence, system is now fully operational. As of August 6 all game bird, big game and big game draw licences were available for purchase. “Over the last several years, the ministry has consulted with many hunters, anglers, trappers and issuers, and has heard that the current system needs to be updated,” Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said. “The fact that hunters and anglers have purchased over 170,000 licences, demonstrates that HAL is meeting the needs of the public.” There are three options to purchase licences through this system: • Online through your personal computer any time; • Through private issuers, Ministry of Environment and select provincial park offices; or • By phone at 1-855-848-4773 (8 a.m. to 9 p.m.). Customers who want to purchase a big game licence online from home, must first obtain a convenience pack of seals to complete the transaction. A convenience pack

of six seals is free and can be obtained from a private issuer, a Ministry of Environment office or select provincial park office beginning August 6. Once you have them, you can complete your transactions online, 24 hours a day. Only one HAL account is required per person. If you have already created an account for angling or the Big Game Draw, you do not need another account. Just access your account and make the purchase. Although August 1 was originally noted as the date hunting licences would be available for sale, the ministry delayed the opening of sales to ensure there is a seamless administrative transition from the sale of angling licences to the sale of hunting licences. Last year the ministry issued over 200,000 hunting licences and 200,000 angling licences. This activity contributes about $40 million to the GDP, and over 2,500 direct jobs, benefiting rural areas and helping to grow local economies. For more details about HAL, a listing of licence issuers, and hunting and angling guides, visit www.environment.gov.sk.ca/licences.
