Investigation process moving slowly The Sun Country Health Region is waiting for the Ministry of Health to provide it with a list of potential independent investigators, one of whom might be able to lead an investigation into possible neglect and/or abuse at the Estevan Regional Nursing Home. Interim CEO Marga Cugnet said the request went in a few weeks ago, but since then, there had been a shuffling of cabinet ministers, including the health portfolio and probably an accompanying shuffle of senior administrators in each ministry that may have stalled the process. Cugnet told The Mercury on June 27 that having

Marga Cugnet the Estevan Police Service launch a parallel investigation into the matter probably won’t change the nature of their own investigation. “We will share information with them, but of

course that would have to involve a release from the family that would enable all of us to share it,� said Cugnet, referring to the family of Mary Mack, a senior who is residing at ERNH, who have alleged that their mother and perhaps others, have suffered at the hands of neglectful and/or abusive staff member(s). The family provided testimonial and photographic evidence of possible abuse to The Mercury prior to this publication releasing a story in early June outlining the accusations. Maggie Dupuis, a

spokeswoman for the family later told The Mercury they wanted an open, more public forum when the investigation began. When that information was revealed to Cugnet, she replied that it would be difficult to arrange that type of process since there are many issues of privacy and confidentiality that are engrained in legislation and regulations to protect all parties when it comes to care of patients and clients, but until a proper dialogue has been established with the family, those details can’t be discussed at this

early stage. Cugnet had said earlier that Sun Country had contacted Dupuis and her family in an attempt to establish some dates for gathering information but had not heard back from them. In the meantime, the family took information similar to that provided to The Mercury, to the Estevan Police Servie (EPS). EPS Chief Del Block said a complaint had been registered, a file had been opened and any potential investigation would be led by a senior sergeant at this stage in their process.

It was a rumour that didn’t unfold into reality last Wednesday afternoon. There were some well sourced expectations that the Sun Country Regional Health board chairwoman Marilyn Charlton was going to make an announcement regarding the appointment of a chief executive officer during the board’s regular open business session in Weyburn. At a previous meeting, Charlton had noted that the announcement would probably be coming by the end of June. That didn’t happen. When questioned by The Mercury as to why the anticipated month end event didn’t take place, Charlton said that the CEO selection process was “on track but not all the information is

in yet and I just didn’t feel comfortable. There are new board members at the table now and we want them to get up to date on the process.� Charlton said Sun Country had received 46 applicants for the top administrative job which has been filled by Marga Cugnet on an interim basis for over a year. Cugnet, the former vice-president of primary and integrated health care, was willing to step into the breach that was left after the board terminated the employment of then CEO Calvin Tant. That followed in the wake of the dismissal of the then vice-president of finance and corporate services Hal Schmidt, after it was revealed that he had been less than forthcoming in presenting his credentials

and previous work-related experiences to the Sun Country board and administration. Schmidt’s role was assumed by Pamela Haupstein who had been engaged in a senior administrative role in the finance department. That appointment was made at the same time as Cugnet took on the interim CEO’s duties. Haupstein has since declared she was not interested

in applying for the finance position on a permanent basis while it is believed Cugnet was one of the 46 applicants for the CEO’s position. Charlton said the board will want the newly appointed CEO to take a lead role in the selection of a new vice-president of finance and corporate services and therefore that process will begin only after the CEO has been

named. In the meantime, Haupstein will continue to serve in that capacity. When it came down to fielding the CEO applicants, Charlton said the governance and human resources committee sorted through the names and credentials and came up with a long list that was later shortened by a professional consultancy firm and that short list was the one that was given to the newly appointed board members to peruse. The three-person short list led to interviews by the board who then make the final decision as to who gets the job that pays approximately $190,000 per year. “When the decision is made, and I expect it to be made soon, there will be a press release issued,� said

Estevan Mercury

The Meadows ready to move ahead Although it has been pushed out of the spotlight by other projects, it appears The Meadows of Estevan is indeed moving forward. At the June 25 regular meeting of city council, first reading was given to a rezoning bylaw for the much talked about project. Located in the city’s northwest corner, The Meadows is a masterplan neighborhood, which, according to the revised plan submitted to council will have space for over 1,700 dwelling units compared to the 1,300 initially projected. The first reading of the rezoning bylaw is the latest happening in The Meadows story. It was initially reported last year that an Alberta development team was planning to construct a neighborhood on land located north of St. Joseph’s Hospital and the west end of Wellock Road. However, since that first announcement, there has been little in the way of development publicly, leading to much speculation about whether or not the project would ever get off the ground. In a recent article regarding the sale of land to another Alberta group for the creation of phase three of the Dominion Heights subdivision, Mayor Gary St. Onge admitted he was disappointed in the slow progress of The Meadows

This map of The Meadows subdivision was presented at the June 25 regular meeting of Estevan city council. project. However since that article appeared, the City and Essex Developments have apparently progressed to the point where a bylaw was introduced

at the most recent council meeting. In an interview with T h e M e rc u r y , p r o j e c t manager Graham Cripps said he is pleased to see things moving forward

and looks forward to getting to work on the project. “It has taken longer than it should have but we are now at the point where ,as engineers, we can be

productive,� said Cripps. “The anticipation is we will be getting on with our grading soon. That is something that was hoped for in April but has been held up a little bit.�

Moore declares his candidacy for councillor He was a rookie going into the last election, but Dennis Moore can now be considered a council veteran and he allowed it to be revealed this past week that he is once again allowing his name to stand for a position on the Estevan city council during this coming October’s general civic election. When asked to comment on his first foray into local politics a few years ago, Moore said he began to realize what details had to be

Dennis Moore covered before any specific job could be done. “We have things in the budget, like sidewalks and lighting that we know, for instance, have to be done, and we’re falling short in some instances,� said Moore, cit-

ing the need to tend to details as one of the impediments to getting things done more quickly. But tending to those details is imperative. He said it’s important for council to monitor contracted work to ensure that the work that is supposed to get done, is getting done and on schedule. Moore said he would also like to see local legislation put in place to ensure that when new construction projects are completed, that the job includes enhancements such as finished driveways, paved exit and entrance aprons, cement or grass and trees ... whatever it takes to complete the

Cripps said their current timeline calls for them to begin grading work and issuing tenders in 30 to 60 days, which “should get somebody out there by the end of August.� The first phase of The Meadows will see lots for 32 homes created along Wellock Road, added Cripps. “The intent in the first phase is to have Meadowview Drive, which is the spine road going north, and we will have some multi-family on that — duplexes, 12-plexes, eight-plexes. A decision has not been made on height, but they will be lined along Meadowview Drive. “Also, as a requirement, a senior’s assisted living (complex) is part of that phase. From what I understand, it is supposed to be a 100-bed unit.� Cripps added that future developments will begin moving forward in 2013. In all, there will be over 140 single-family lots available, which Cripps noted would be large lots to reflect the quality of the homes along Wellock.

project. “The finishing touches are required too. We shouldn’t be satisfied with hearing that something ‘will come later,’ and then it never gets done. Things like paving needn’t come later. The finishing work is part of the project in my opinion.� Moore said that when shoddy work is done, some contractors then want to blame the City for something that’s gone wrong. This is something that local residents and city officials need to be constantly aware of, especially during a booming construction period in the city’s history. “Every construction project requires proper inspection and if this city is going to be moving continually forward, those things need to be done and we need to stay ahead of it, not behind it,� he said. Moore said some major projects, like those being witnessed in the Hillside area, can be completed in a timely fashion with some good time management in place. The now veteran councillor said it has been a pleasure working with the current council team. “It has been a good group to be with if you want to make things move forward for sure. We don’t always agree on the details, but we’ve managed to get it done at the end without jeopardizing any project or holding things up. I’ve enjoyed the experience,� he said. Moore said he was not daunted by the fact that new provincial legislation has set the terms for elected municipal officials at four years instead of the traditional three years, beginning with this fall’s election.

Estevan Mercury

Wide ranging report delivered to Sun Country board A wide-ranging report that outlined various projects and program updates for the Sun Country Health Region’s board of directors was delivered by interim CEO Marga Cugnet on June 27 during their regular monthly business session at Tatagwa View, the region’s head office in Weyburn The pace of surgical procedures in the region’s two major hospitals, St. Joseph’s in Estevan and Weyburn General, has been meeting the targets, Cugnet said. Most patients requiring surgery have been scheduled within a six-month window and other primary care goals are also being met. The interim CEO said that one nurse practitioner position was filled during the past month and the leadership teams for the training in efficiency procedures,

entitled LEAN, are moving along as planned as are shared services across the province which translates into savings for all health regions, especially on the procurement side. As far as dealing with patients and residents, Cugnet said “there is a lot of work going on throughout the region, but we’re getting staff to understand why certain procedures need to be done and there is still a lot of work to do.� Board chairwoman Marilyn Charlton reported she had attended a meeting that outlined the progress being made toward the construction of a new health centre in Kipling and another meeting that focused on ambulance service for the Coronach district. During her report, Cugnet pointed out that in terms

When it came to the

SGI rates to increase The provincial government has approved a 1.6 per cent net increase with rate rebalancing to SGI’s basic auto insurance premiums. The new rates will be effective August 4. SGI had originally requested a 3.7 per cent increase with rate rebalancing. The Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel subsequently recommended a 0.6 per cent increase with rebalancing, plus two consecutive years of a one per cent rate surcharge for all vehicles. “We feel the 1.6 per cent represents a good balance between SGI’s

original request and the panel’s recommendation,� Minister responsible for SGI Donna Harpauer said. “We’re only looking at one rating year, so we essentially took the panel’s recommendation for 0.6 per cent, but instead of the additional one per cent being assessed on all vehicles, it will be applied through rate rebalancing.� Rate rebalancing helps to keep vehicle rates fair by analyzing the actual costs of insurance claims for different vehicle types and classes as well as the number of collisions and their severity, auto damage,

LEAN training (efficiency in the workplace), Cugnet noted that Sun Country has nine people registered for a LEAN leader certificate and there are 35 people enrolled in the LEAN training flight that began June 25. Each training module required five days of lessons and practical experiences. There are also three members of the human resources staff attending the sessions. On the recruitment and retention side of the region, Cugnet had some good news for the second consecutive month since the arrival of new people into hard-to-fill positions again exceeded the number resigning or retiring. She said also there continued to be challenges with recruitment and staffing emergency medical services personnel in rural areas. They had welcomed 15 new registered nurses plus another three senior assists (third year nursing students); four licensed practical nurses, one combined laboratory/X-ray technicial and two cooks. Resignations during this same period included six RNs, (four casual), four LPNs (three casual) and one laboratory/X-ray technician, one dietitian and one out-ofscope management person. In terms of recruitment of physicians in Estevan, Cugnet reported that three files are currently active as the city is hoping to attract two more general practitioners and one general practitioner/surgeon. The region is also working closely with medical students and recently attended their residents retreat

12071ST00

in Cypress Hills and came away with a locum contact list with some first-year residents. Recruitment personnel also attended the physical therapy career fair at the University of Saskatchewan in early June. Nurses starting their six-week clinical placement (practicum) in July will be stationed in Arcola, St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Weyburn General hospitals. The regional director of recruitment and retention also met with management teams from the Southeast Regional College regarding programs to develop continuing care aides and cooks. The concern is the delivery of the courses to rural areas for convenient student access. They have noted there is a critical shortage of workers in these job classifications. Cugnet noted that Estevan physician Dr. Ed Tsoi is taking the lead in organizing an informational meeting with area physicians as the region works toward being included in the expansion of the family medicine program for new physicians into more rural locations. The steering group has met with the College of Medicine and the U of Saskatchewan and it was noted that Sun Country would need to hire a physician co-ordinator and administrative staff as part of the program if it is accepted. Cugnet said more formal word on the success or failure of these efforts will probably be better known sometime in early 2013 and if successful, the program would probably roll out in 2014.

Council Briefs News and notes from the June 25 regular meeting of Estevan city council Council received a request from Quota International of Estevan for a permit for what would be the second annual Winter Parade. The first event was held in December of 2011. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parade is set for Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. According to the information provided to the media, awards will be given for best float, best theme representation, best horse(s), best music and best youth. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ In a letter from Shelly

Toth of the South East Cornerstone School Division, it was noted the City Clerk Judy Pilloud has been appointed to the position of associate returning officer for the City of Estevan and subdivisions for the school board elections on Oct. 24. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ In his regular report city manager Jim Puffalt announced that Bruce Balcom has been hired as the new public works manager. He was expected

to start work this past Tuesday. Puffalt said Balcom has extensive experience in maintenance of water, wastewater and public works. Originally from Ontario, Balcom was most recently a district maintenance superintendent for the Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation and managed three provincial parks for the organization. Prior to his entry into public works, Balcom was in the

Canadian Armed Forces. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ The building permit report for May was presented at the meeting and it showed that the construction pace in 2012 is lagging well behind 2011. Through May, the City has issued 51 permits which had a combined total value of just over $17 million. At the same point last year, the City had issued 62 permits which had a value of almost $24 million.

May 2012 was also well off of the pace set last year. There were 24 permits issued in the month with a combined value of $5.25 million. In 2011, the 21 permits issued came in at over $10 million. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Council gave first reading to a rezoning bylaw which will ultimately clear the way for Phase 3 of the Dominion Heights subdivision. As was previously reported in The Mercury,

council agreed to sell 24 acres of land to Trimount Developments for the creation of the new neighborhood. According to the information provided, the subdivision will be comprised of 35 single family lots, 18 lots for duplexes, over 30 townhouses and four four-storey condominiums. As part of the agreement, Trimount must also provide a piece of land for a new fire hall.

German club volunteer recognized at provincial level Wa l t e r B i b e r d o r f , past president and longtime member of the Estevan and District German Freundschaft Society, was recently presented with the Saskatchewan German Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special volunteer award, honouring his giving spirit, talents and readiness to help out whenever needed. The special volunteer award is handed out each year to recipients who have been nominated by member groups. The award winners contribute through many volunteer hours and in various functions for the promotion of the German language, culture, customs and traditions. The winners all serve by personal example

and are role models in the community. Their contributions help advance German-Canadian culture in Saskatchewan. The award was presented during the special awards banquet during the annual Treffpunkt weekend in Lloydminster June 9. Since it was not possible for Biberdorf, a resident of Frobisher, to travel across the province to accept the award in person, the Estevan club president Katharina Ulbrich accepted it on his behalf. Then when the Estevan German Club held their last meeting on June 21 before entering into a summer break, the gift basket was presented to Biberdorf by

Ulbrich in front of the local membership. Biberdorf has served the Estevan German Club for over 19 years, holding various executive positions including the presidency from 2008 to 2012. As current past president and choir conductor, he is still actively involved in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. In making the presentation, it was noted that Biberdorf is a generous and warm-hearted person who continuously shares his gifts and talent with others. He dedicates time and knowledge to the German Club and is also actively involved at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lutheran Church in Frobisher. Their local minister, Rev. Schultz said,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walter exemplifies the qualities of an outstanding and devoted volunteer who possesses personal integrity and respect for his peers.â&#x20AC;? Biberdorf and his family served for several years as missionary and humanitarian aid workers in Papua, New Guinea. The special volunteer awards at the provincial level have been presented to outstanding nominees in the Saskatchewan German community since 2000. Speaking on behalf of the local club, Ulbrich said the Estevan German Club proudly celebrates another member who is being recognized for his dedication and great volunteer work.

WEDNESDAY

A6 EDITORIAL

A reprieve from the frantic pace? Is the frenetic pace we have been setting for the past two years about to level off at least a little bit? One good indicator that this is perhaps so, might be found in the recent building permit reports provided by city hall on a monthly basis. When we aren’t setting new records in construction volume and evaluations with each passing month, then perhaps there is some levelling off happening. And that could almost be a good thing. Everyone needs a moment to catch their breath and do a little calculating as to where they’ve been, where they are and where they expect to be in the next six months. With natural gas prices remaining low and benchmark oil prices staying well below peak levels but still high enough to afford everyone engaged in the business a healthy profit ... this could be a good time for a little plateau work to take place. It could be time for some catch-up on details that were left undone due to the frantic nature of the industry for the past 24 to 30 months. With the City of Estevan’s building permit values being a few million behind last year’s pace, it doesn’t seem too bad since even this pace is still very healthy. A more realistic pace with more realistic expectations for completion dates might be welcomed. With construction crews maybe not having to rush hither and yon putting out fires or trying to meet strict, unrealistic deadlines for a change, it might lead to happier and more efficient teams of employees. After being on fast forward for two years, perhaps we’ll be able to see if efficiency improves when those performing the work have an opportunity to spend a little time with a family and friends, or get more than one good night’s sleep in the week. Being subjected to unrealistic targets day after day can lead to some harsh stress factors that, in turn, often lead to bad and unsafe choices being made. Drugs are inhaled just so you can keep going. Health concerns are bypassed because the job has to be completed and you don’t have time to get it checked out. Families get ignored when the growth period is long-lasting and constant. Those things take a toll on everyone and those effects drift down to include others. Prices soar and living costs match them, putting a whole set of new pressures on the workforce. Everyone is forced to charge more, earn more in order to pay the rent, mortgage, insurance, car payment and other bills. It’s unrelenting. So perhaps a little indication that there might be a bit of a reprieve, or a small blip in the pace of things for a month or two, might be welcomed. We don’t expect things will ever be as quiet and docile as they were five or six years ago, but seeing a building permit report that isn’t a record-setting one every month is not really a bad thing either. Maybe it’s a sign that we may just be settling into a sensible growth pattern rather than continuing with one that was nothing other than an unholy rush without any end in sight.

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

Alta. MP speaks well for rural Sask. The biggest problem in politics is how quickly those we elect forget where they came from and whom they were elected to represent. But maybe one of the problems is that we don’t give enough credit to those who do remember. In that vein, Saskatchewan’s Conservative MPs could certainly learn a lesson from their Alberta caucus colleague, MP Brent Rathgeber. Rathgeber’s name is likely unfamiliar to most of you, but the backbench Conservative MP for Edmonton-St. Albert is actually a Saskatchewan boy who hails from the Melville area and received his law degree from the University of Saskatchewan. And in a recent posting on his website entitled “Of Orange Juice and Limos”, Rathgeber made it clear he hasn’t forgotten his Saskatchewan roots. SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

But when I heard them talking about the experience, it evoked a memory of a long ago summer vacation decision that we made as a group of kids who were slightly bored just four or five days into our summer. We didn’t go to any summer camps. Some of us worked or played ball all summer or a combination of both and when we got time off for a Saturday matinee at the theatre, we took full advantage of it. In our “hood” there was the regular gang of about six that could be extended to eight or 10 if we added girls and expanded the definition of neighbourhood. This was one of those extension mornings. Casual conversation among the eight of us heading over to Sings convenience store to pick up some Kool-Aid, revealed that collectively, there were four owners of BB guns and they were bored with aiming at cans and crows. By the time we returned from Sings, a distance of three

Norm Park All Things Considered blocks, we had formed a bad game plan. Four donned their winter parkas and became the hunted or the prey. Four others got to be the shooters. The neighbourhood became the battleground. Homes with lots of windows were out of bounds ... maybe. Nobody crafted a clear definition. We didn’t excel in making rules, but one we had we decided to keep, was not to shoot the BBs at anyone’s face. Good choice. Parkas were necessary because as anyone knew, who had been shot by a BB at less than 10 yards, it kinda stung. Our regular stream of pet dogs and cats were also off limits to the shooters. The game lasted several hours. We skipped lunch, exchanged roles from time to time, and of course, it was one of those kids games where nobody needed to keep score. Yep, there were a few swear words exchanged on occasion. There was even a fight when one “shooter” got too close to a crouching parka-clad victim before letting him have it right in the gluteus maximus. That fight was more a matter of pride than injury. When matinee time rolled around at the Vogue Theatre,

“Last month, I returned to Grenfell, Saskatchewan for a family funeral,” Rathgeber stated in his June 26 post. “The event was, of course, tragically sad. However, returning to small town Saskatchewan is always an eye opening experience ... “There is a certain amount of common sense amongst prairie folk, an instinctive wisdom and moral compass that is frequently absent in the hustling city of Edmonton and in the Ottawa Bubble.” The Edmonton-St. Albert MP said in the posting that he really had no explanation for the hometown folks that could justify the recent story of a $600,000 overtime bill limousine drivers racked up in 2011 while waiting for cabinet ministers. “The $600,000 in limousine driver overtime did not play well with the small prairie town sensibilities,” Rathgeber wrote. Also of concern to the Grenfell residents, Rathgeber wrote, was the “well publicized reports of the misadventures of CIDA Minister Bev Oda, who on a business trip to London, charged taxpayers for $16 orange juice, $1,000 a day limousine service and an upgrade to a hotel that allowed smoking.” The Alberta MP said he had no problem “with ministers being chauffeured to events around the nation’s capital for reasons of security. But there is little justification for ministers being driven around the Parliamentary precincts, especially when the House of Commons also operates a continuous shuttle bus service for MPs and all Parliamentary staff,” he wrote. “Surely, as government preaches fiscal discipline such extravagance must be eliminated,” he said. “Surely, having limo drivers on standby for hours is a waste of taxpayer dollars. Surely, there are taxis available in Ottawa.”

we were exhausted. Those in parkas were hot and clammy, so the game ended with a truce. We climbed on bikes or ran to the theatre, purchased our red licorice whistles that we could turn into pea-shooter like instruments and spent the rest of the afternoon firing red licorice missiles toward the cowboys on the screen from the front row seats. Now in retrospect, this column comes with a warning. In today’s society, shooting BB guns at someone is unlawful and rightfully so. They hurt. I don’t know about paintballs, but BBs hurt. They don’t hurt as much as a Joey McMahon fastball in the ribs in a Little League game, but almost as much. So paintball games are legal. Red Ryder BB guns and parkas ... nope, at least I don’t think so. Of course that was a few decades ago, I don’t think there was a local bylaw in my hometown that covered off stupid kids in parkas being hunted down by other none-too-bright friends on the prowl with Red Ryder BB guns. Try it today, and you’ll probably end up in court subjected to various sections of local bylaws and provincial edicts. Back then, it was merely a well wasted Saturday morning where everyone escaped without injury except Dave, the guy who got shot in the buttocks ... his feelings were hurt and his pride was a little dented, but he got over it.

He concluded that most of the people in Grenfel “have never ridden in a limo” and “none of them have ever drunk $16 orange juice.” “Surely, they would appreciate if government took more care in spending their money,” he said. The sad reality is that the best one can expect from Rathgeber is continued obscurity on the Conservative backbenches. Such honesty will not unseat from cabinet the likes of Alberta colleague Jason Kenney, whose nasty recent description of the Alberta deputy premier seems to fit the style of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet ministers. But Rathgeber makes an excellent point about a Conservative government preaching fiscal discipline while practising extravagance. Remember Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz’s explanation for things like closing community pastures and the tree farm at Indian Head? “Canadians gave us a mandate to get back to balanced budgets continue to focus on jobs and the economy,” said Ritz, who rang up $270,000 on travel last year - the highest bill of anyone in cabinet. Saskatchewan Conservative MPs like Ritz were first elected as Reformers, promising to clean up the mess left behind by “those Liberals who claimed to be entitled to their entitlements.” But are any of our Saskatchewan Conservative MPs, all of whom represent common sense, small town folk like the people of Grenfell, saying anything about these outrageous federal spending decisions? Sadly, too many of our own Saskatchewan MPs have forgotten the small towns from where they have come.

Don’t like it here? Leave Much to my chagrin, one of the most popular sections of the Southeast Trader Express is the Cheers and Jeers section. I am in the distinct minority in this office — and by minority I mean the only person — when it comes to my dislike of Cheers and Jeers. Without trying to sound uppity, I think they are beneath us. To me, it’s something you expect in a 12 page paper out of Podunk. I know we’re not some massive metropolis here but I think things like that belong elsewhere. My other problem with Cheers and Jeers is really two in the same. I don’t entirely love the fact they are anonymous and in turn, I don’t love what that level of anonymity brings out. We get a lot of nice comments that people would likely have no problem attaching their name to. But we also get

Chad Saxon These Things I Think a lot of venomous comments that are made because the person making the jeer can do it anonymously. Some of them have names to them but the more negative ones are submitted without a name in all manner of ways. I found one sticking in the front door of our office one day. Giving those people a chance to hide behind a curtain has basically created a soapbox for cowards. Case in point was the June 22 edition of the Trader. One writer wrote “Jeers to Estevan for being such a lame place to live. Seriously.” I love how the writer needed to add the “seriously” at the end to make their point. Now I’m guessing that if

the person behind that comment had to put their name to it, it’s very likely they wouldn’t have made it. But that comment also leads me to another thought. I would humbly suggest to the writer that if Estevan is indeed as “seriously” lame as you proclaim it to be, then it’s time for you to leave. Do not pass go, do not collect your $200, do us all a favour and leave. Too harsh? I don’t think so. You see, people like this generally offer little in the way of anything positive to a community. They sit back with their petty little complaints and project the misery of their life onto the current city they happen to be in. Really, if this person were living anywhere else in the province, it would probably be lame too. In other words, it’s a reflection of the

person, not necessarily the community. And there are others like this. You hear them with their insipid little comments. To them, I would also offer my same advice: Leave. I’m not naïve to the fact our community has some issues. But name me one that doesn’t. I was just recently in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for four days. It is one of the most beautiful cities I have been to. I was completely shocked because the obvious stereotype is steel mills and industrial blight. The opposite couldn’t have been truer. Still, I’m sure if we were to go and poll the citizens, they would have their issues. These spiteful, hateful, petty little people who try to bring down the rest of us need to go. As a community, when we hear comments like that, we need to straighten

Letters to the Editor Doing the right thing, with courage The Editor: I am writing this letter to show my heartfelt support to Maggie Dupuis, Melanie Jordan and the family of Mary Mack in making a very difficult decision, conceived out of anguish and carried forth in desperation, to come to the public forum and speak of sensitive issues concerning their mother. To do so takes a great deal of strength and courage and most assuredly is the result of long-standing, unsat-

isfactory, unresolved issues. Logic would say that if one resident has experienced these difficulties, others have also. There’s something amiss at Estevan Regional Nursing Home and I have more than a passing feeling that the issues experienced there are systemic and not exclusive to ERNH. Not everyone who trains for employment in the personal health care field is suited to the day-to-day operations of

assisting long-term residents or seniors, in general, for that matter. Unfortunately it is the ones that aren’t well suited for the work, who bring down the dignity and the respect of the residents, the facility and the rest of the dedicated and compassionate health care workers. I truly hope that when all the respected groups come together to meet with the family of Mary Mack, that they do so with open minds and with a sincere resolve to do

the right thing. To acknowledge that wrongs have been done and to go forth with the fortitude that it will undoubtedly take, to enact the measures required to ensure as best as humanly possible, that this never happens again, to anyone. Thank you so much to the Estevan Mercury, for the many years of unbiased reporting, no matter how sensitive the issues. Marian Weber Estevan

these people out or, as I stated above, tell them to hit the road. There are tons of people in this community dedicated to making it a better place to live. They have given hours of their time in a world where time is becoming the most precious of commodities. They don’t do it for any reward or publicity — OK, there are some that do — they do it because they want to

make Estevan a better place to live — not sit back on their ass and send in their spiteful little comments to, sigh, Cheers and Jeers. There are all kinds of people who want to be here and want to do what they can so others will too. So if these people don’t want to be here, ask them to leave. We need the space for those who do.

Police investigating a series of thefts Once again it was a week of diversity for the Estevan Police Service (EPS) as their members were required to handle a number of different incidents throughout the past six days and nights beginning with Sunday, June 26 when they were called upon to look into three separate reports of domestic disturbances. The matters were all resolved peacefully, but one did include a young child, so that file was referred to the Ministry of Social Services. The other two incidents were settled once one of the disputing parties left the scene for the evening. During the day shift on June 27, EPS members were asked to look into a matter that had occurred overnight. The victim said that sometime during the previous evening, their pickup truck that had been parked in the central part of the city, had been entered and a wallet taken and damage had been inflicted on the passenger side window.

Another vehicle had been broken into that same night. It was parked in the west central area of the city. A wallet was also taken from that vehicle, but the vehicle had not undergone any damages. Police had also received a report of a person attempting to enter vehicles on the west side of the city, but the would-be thief had been scared off when the alarm sounded on one of the vehicles that he/she had been attempting to enter. Another call involved a second intoxicated male in the central part of the city, but in this instance the man was released into the custody of an acquaintance who had arrived on the scene and was willing to take responsibility of the inebriated subject. One vehicle owner reported to police that he had found someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cellphone in his vehicle. He turned the phone over to police who are now attempting to identify the owner. A number of traffic violation

tickets were issued to motorists on June 28. Some of the violations included having illegally tinted windows, speeding and unbuckled seat belts. Police added a warning to drivers that any after-market window tints on the front side windows or windshields are illegal. During the night of June 29, EPS members received a complaint of a purse being stolen from a business in the central part of the city. This matter remains under investigation. A report of an assault in progress in the city led police to a residence where they arrested a 26-year-old man. He was taken into custody and is now slated for a court appearance July 30. A report of a fight in progress in the east central part of the city attracted police attention that same night. When police arrived at the scene, they discovered that one of the combatants had fled, but they

were able to speak with the other person who had been engaged in the fracas and following this conversation, they determined that the matter was concluded. A report of an assault in the north central part of the city resulted in a 29-year-old man being taken into custody and charged. He is now scheduled for an Aug. 12 court appearance. A domestic disturbance on the south side of the city on June 29 resulted in a 45-year-old woman being arrested and transported to police cells where she was lodged until sober. Before the night ended, EPS members had stopped a vehicle on a north side parking lot where they took a 23-year-old into custody and charged him for being intoxicated while being in care or control of a vehicle. He now has an Aug. 27 court date. Police were called to a residence in the central part of the city

on June 30 in response to a report of a domestic dispute. The man involved in the dispute, who did not live at that address, had arrived to pick up some clothing and found that the clothing had been destroyed. Police managed to bring the issue to a conclusion with their intervention. In a north central business establishment that same night, police arrested a 32-year-old man for being intoxicated in public. On July 1, EPS members attended to a residence in the central part of the city in response to a report of a domestic dispute. The man involved in the incident had fled the scene prior to police arrival. He was later located by police, but once again fled from them. He was found once again and was arrested and taken into custody where he was charged with obstructing a police officer as well as for trespassing by night. The 22-year-old subject is now scheduled for an Aug. 22 court appearance.

Sentencing delayed in sexual assault case Question about the accusedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cognitive ability led to a sentencing delay in Estevan provincial court Thursday. Roland Revet was before judge Karl Bazin last week and was expected to be sentenced after pleading guilty to charges that he sexually assaulted a minor. The identity of the victim cannot be revealed due to a publication ban. During submissions from the Crown and defence, it was noted that Revet as-

saulted the youth in question on a number of occasions in 2008 and 2009. The abuse was said to have included the touching of the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genitals. In the pre-sentencing report, it was noted that Revet, who is 55, single, and lives on a farm with his brother, did not have a prior criminal record. There were also significant questions about his level of intelligence and whether or not he had the insight to understand what he had done.

12071BS00

Crown prosecutor Mitch Crumley asked Bazin to hand Revet a custodial sentence of 15 months followed by a lengthy probation period. Crumley also asked for a handful of prohibitions and that Revet be forced to submit DNA to the National Sex Offender Registry. In his submissions, defence lawyer Robert Grimsrud did not dispute the circumstances of the case and asked Bazin to give Revet a community sentence. Grimsrud added that

the mother of youth has also stated that she did not want to see the accused go to jail. Grimsrud said while the mother is well aware of the severity of the crimes and was the person who reported Revet to the authorities, she had serious concerns about what might happen to Revet while he was incarcerated. The defence also pointed out that both the accused and the mother, who are related, were both sexually assaulted

by an uncle and that Revet never received any counselling for the abuse he suffered. However, the bulk of Grimsrudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s submission centred on concerns about Revetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cognitive ability and whether or not he had insight into his crimes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is unsophisticated in his approach to the world,â&#x20AC;? Grimsrud noted. Those questions prompted Bazin to halt the sentencing and order a report on

-XO\WK SP (VWHYDQ(ONV/RGJH 'RZQVWDLUV%DFN0HHWLQJ5RRP

Revetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mental capacity as he noted he was not comfortable in making a decision without more information available to him. Bazin also asked both the Crown and defence to look into what types of reports are available to gauge Revetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mental status. He then adjourned the case until July 23 when both sides will report to him on what reports are available and a decision will be made on how to proceed. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ In other court proceedings, the three people arrested in a violent home invasion earlier this year had their case adjourned until July 23. Peter McQuinn, Joseph Debigare and Alya Schachtel face a number of charges in relation to the incident which occurred in a local mobile home park. Lawyers for the accused are expected back in court on the 23rd when they will set a date for preliminary trials for the trio.

Holy Family announces administrative changes The Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division completed the academic year last week by making a couple of announcements regarding administrative appointments. The school system that serves approximately 1,000 students with schools in Estevan, Weyburn, Radville and Wilcox stated that Keith Thompson has been appointed assistant director of education effective Aug. 2. They followed up by stating that Dave Murphy has been appointed as principal at St. Mary’s School in Estevan, a role he will begin as the new academic year unfolds later this summer. Thompson, it was noted, has been in school administration for 19 years and

until just recently, was the principal of Humboldt Collegiate Institute, a position that he had held for the past two years. Thompson has a master’s degree in education with a focus on teaching administration, curriculum and instruction. He has specialized expertise in special education and experience in involvement with First Nations communities and with at-risk youth. Thompson and his wife Chantelle have two children, a son in third year university and a daughter entering Grade 12. Thompson is replacing Norm Casavant who served the division as their assistant director last year when the position was first created for

the growing school population and administrative needs. Murphy first started working for Holy Family (formerly the Estevan Catholic Separate School Division) when he joined the staff at St. John’s School in Estevan in 1994. He taught Grades 5 and 6 there for two years and has been teaching Grade 7 at St. Mary’s School since 1996 and following the closure of St. John’s. Murphy and his wife Lauretta have four children and five grandchildren. Murphy is replacing Chad Fingler as St. Mary’s principal, a position he held for the past few years. Fingler has accepted a new administrative position within the Holy Family division.

SaskEnergy looks to increase rates The provincial government has accepted SaskEnergy’s request for a delivery service rate increase of $2.25 to the company’s basic monthly charge for residential customers. When combined with the lower commodity rate introduced earlier this year, annual residential bills will be lowered by almost

$50 in 2012 or 5.6 per cent. In February of this year, SaskEnergy applied to the Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel (SRRP) for adjustments to commodity and delivery service rates. The SRRP recommended that changes to both rates were warranted and a lowered commodity rate was implemented April 1, 2012. The delivery rate in-

crease will directly support safety and system investment across the province for SaskEnergy. The government accepted the SRRP’s proposed delivery service rate changes to accommodate the costs of growth and maintaining a safe distribution system, and to continue to address challenging soil conditions and aging infrastructure.

“SaskEnergy’s new delivery charges support continued customer growth, as well as investments in safety programs important to providing safe and reliable natural gas services,” Minister responsible for SaskEnergy Tim McMillan said. “Even with this change, SaskEnergy’s residential customers are paying the lowest delivery

charges of any natural gas consumer in Canada.” As noted by the rate review panel, SaskEnergy has mitigated the impact of delivery increases to customers by reducing its own costs through productivity improvements and efficiency measures. SaskEnergy has saved more than $22 million through efficiency measures since

2009. This is SaskEnergy’s first delivery service rate increase in nearly three years, with 15,000 service connections installed for new residential, business and industrial customer connections during that period. The changes to the basic monthly charge went into effect July 1.

SaskPower warns of scam SaskPower wants the public to be aware of a door-knocking scam that could end up costing people in identity theft. SaskPower customers are being targeted by an unknown organization making door-to-door visits to residential homes. The visitor claims to be a representative of SaskPower promoting the potential benefits of SaskPower’s GreenPower program for the residential home. People are then asked to provide their power bill to determine if they are eligible for the program. This is not a legitimate offering and SaskPower does not contact residen-

tial customers by door-todoor canvassing to promote products or services, with the exception of surveys for research purposes. The GreenPower program offers customers the option to purchase a block of EcoLogo certified green power - power generated from renewable sources such as wind - each month at a premium rate. The program is currently fully subscribed and is not accepting new applications. People who believe that someone is using their identity illegally should contact their local police to report the matter immediately.

More money for Saskatchewan seniors The provincial government has unveiled the new Personal Care Home Benefit, and announced increases to the Seniors Income Plan. The moves are part of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seniors Affordability Plan and went into effect July 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These programs will help seniors with low income with their costs of living,â&#x20AC;? Social Services Minister June Draude said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know some seniors are having difficulty mak-

ing ends meet, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we made the Seniors Affordability Plan an important part of our election platform last November. I am very pleased to be able to follow through on that commitment.â&#x20AC;? The PCHB will provide seniors with monthly financial assistance to help them with the cost of living in a licensed personal care home. Those eligible for the program will receive a monthly supplement, amounting to the

difference between their monthly income and the threshold of $1,800. To be eligible for the PCHB, an applicant must be 65 years of age or older; have a monthly income below $1,800; live in a licensed personal care home in Saskatchewan and be receiving the old age security pension. The government has committed $3.5 million this year to the PCHB, which will benefit about 1,500 seniors. In addition, seniors

receiving benefits under SIP will receive up to $50 more each month, which will automatically be added to their payment in July, 2012. SIP benefits were last increased in 2009, when the maximum rates rose to $190 per month and new eligibility criteria expanded the program to approximately 8,000 additional low-income seniors. The new monthly maximum will be $240, and further increases of $10 per year are planned

for the next three years. As of a result of these enhancements, by 2015, SIP benefits will have tripled since 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our government is committed to making life better for Saskatchewan seniors,â&#x20AC;? Draude said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These enhancements will make a definite difference in the quality of life for seniors with low income in our province.â&#x20AC;?

Outdoor Fire Pit Safety With summer just around the corner, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for families to enjoy an evening around their backyard fire pits. To ensure your summer fun is not dampened, keep in mind a few fire safety tips while using your outdoor fire pit. -Many people are allergic to smoke, so be courteous to your neighbours and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow smoke from your fire to interfere with their enjoyment of the outdoors. -Keep your fire manageable. Large fires can give off excessive amounts of heat, which could easily ignite surrounding combustible materials (fences, decks, sheds). -Never start a fire in your pit with flammable liquids. Remember your boy scout days, and start it with small kindling. -Small children should always be kept a safe distance from the fire pit. -Keep a garden hose nearby, just in case hot embers do escape. -Never leave your fire unattended. Before you retire for the evening, soak your fire down with water to ensure all hot embers are completely extinguished. -A permit is required for all outdoor fire pits. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re free. Just drop by the Fire Hall for a permit application. -If requested to extinguish your fire by a City Official (Police or Fire), please do so immediately. Failure to comply will result in a revoked permit, and a fee for service should the Fire Department be called to extinguish it on your behalf.

Warning Signs of Tornadoes: â&#x20AC;˘ Severe thunderstorms with frequent thunder and lightning â&#x20AC;˘ An extremely dark sky sometimes highlighted by green or yellow clouds â&#x20AC;˘ A rumbling sound, such as a freight train or a whistling sound similar to a jet aircraft â&#x20AC;˘ A funnel cloud at the rear of a thunder cloud often behind a curtain of heavy rain or hail  What to Do During a Tornado:  If you are near a building: 1. Listen to your radio during severe thunderstorms 2. If a Tornado Warning has been issued take cover immediately. 3. Go to the basement or take shelter in a small interior ground floor room, closet or hallway. 4. Protect yourself by sitting under a heavy table or desk. 5. Stay away from windows and outside walls and doors. 6. Do not use elevators. 7. Avoid large halls, churches, arenas etc.: their roofs are more likely to collapse. 8. Stay close to the ground, protect your head and hide from flying debris. If you are driving: 1. If you are driving try to get to a nearby shelter â&#x20AC;&#x201C;drive away from the tornado at a right angle. 2. Do not get caught in a car or mobile home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; take shelter elsewhere. If no shelter is available, lie face down in a ditch or culvert away from the vehicle or mobile home. 3. If a tornado seems to be standing still, it is either traveling away from you or heading right for you. 4. Stay close to the ground, protect your head and hide from flying debris.zv Hail: Hail forms when updrafts in thunderclouds carry raindrops upwards into extremely cold areas and freeze layer upon layer until they are too heavy and fall to the ground Hailstones vary in size from peas to grapefruits and fall at great speed. People have been seriously injured by hailstones. What to Do When It Hails: 1. Take cover when hail begins to fall. 2. Do not go out to cover plants, cars or garden furniture or to rescue animals. For more information regarding Emergency Preparedness, please contact Helen Fornwald, EMO Coordinator at 634â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1860.

SUMMER SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS  Environment Canada monitors the weather 24 hours a day, every day of the year. If a severe storm is on the way, the weather service uses the local media and Environment Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Weather Radio to alert the public. There are two basic types of alerts:  A Weather watch is provided when conditions are favorable for a severe storm to develop. These are usually issued early in the day. It is a good idea to pay attention to the weather and listen to the radio or TV for up-dated information.  A Weather Warning means that severe weather is happening or that severe weather conditions are very likely. A thunderstorm develops in an unstable atmosphere when warm moist air near the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface rises quickly and cools. The moisture condenses to form rain droplets and dark thunder clouds. These storms are often accompanied by hail, lightning, heavy rain, high winds and tornadoes. Thunderstorms are usually over in an hour, although a series of thunderstorms can last for several hours. Lightning â&#x20AC;&#x201C;During a thunderstorm the air is charged with electricity. Bolts of lightning hit the ground at about 40,000 km per second â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so fast that the series of strikes hitting the ground appear as a single bolt.  What To Do When There Is Lightning:  1. Estimate how far away the lightning is. Every second between the flash of lightning and the thunderclap equals 300 meters. If you count fewer than 30 seconds, take shelter immediately. 2. If indoors, stay away from windows, doors, fireplaces, radiators, sinks, bathtubs, appliances, metal pipes, telephones and other things which conduct electricity. (You can use a cell phone) 3. Unplug radios, computers and televisions. 4. Do not go to rescue the laundry on the clothesline as it conducts electricity. If outdoors, take shelter in a building, ditch or a culvert but never under a tree. 5. If caught in the open, do not lie flat but crouch in the leap frog position and lower your head. 6. Do not ride bicycles, motorcycles or golf carts or use metal tools as they conduct electricity. 7. If swimming or in a boat, get back to shore immediately. 8. If you are in a car, stay there but pull away from trees which might fall on you. 9. You may resume activity 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder.  Tornadoes  Tornadoes are violent windstorms identified by their twisting funnel- shaped cloud. They are always produced by thunderstorms, but not every thunderstorm produces a tornado. They travel between 20 to 90 km/h, are erratic and can change course suddenly. Do not chase tornadoes. Tornado Watch means the weather could develop a tornado. Tornado Warning means a tornado has been seen or it is very likely that one will develop shortly.

(306) 634-2654 â&#x20AC;˘ sports@estevanmercury.ca â&#x20AC;˘ twitter.com/joshlewis306 on his mod feature win at the Estevan Motor Speedway season opener on Friday.

Wilson wins mod feature at EMS opener Like an oasis in the desert, Estevan Motor Speedway was finally able to give race-starved local fans what they wanted on Friday. The trackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much-belated season opener went ahead after four consecutive race nights were stymied by rain. The action was worth the wait, as all three classes were full of cars and two of the three features boasted late lead changes. Spencer Wilson passed Marlyn Seidler on the second-last lap of the modified feature to earn his first career mod victory. The Minot native said that although heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had success this year, it was nice to get the first feature win out of the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of seconds and thirds and top fives. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my first win. It feels pretty good,â&#x20AC;? he said. Seidler, who is from Underwood, N.D., led the 24-car fi eld for virtually the entire race until he was overtaken by Wilson and his 75W car. Wilson started the feature in ninth position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bit of an advantage to start near the back so you can watch where the trackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going and sneak up on those guys,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the beginning, I thought it was a long ways to go and I just tried to get started and keep myself out of trouble and start picking them off one at a time.â&#x20AC;?

Flory, Dionne also victorious as Speedway season finally gets underway

Wayne Johnson (4J) leads a pack of drivers including Cory Mohr (5) and Derrick Big Eagle (71) around a turn during a modified heat at Estevan Motor Speedway on Friday. McLenehan was third in the mod feature, with Tyson Turnbull of Estevan and Joey Galloway of Manor rounding out the top five. Sixteen drivers finished the race. Wilson said the track conditions for the feature were conducive to a lot of movement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the heat race, I was a little bit nervous. It was a pretty heavy track. But it was nice to see that the track kind of slicked off a little bit, not a whole lot, but it made it so a guy can move around on the track and do some passing.â&#x20AC;? Wilson is currently third in the modified point standings at Dacotah Speedway in Mandan, seven points behind leader

Shawn Strand, although he has led the pack at times earlier this season. Joe Flory of Williston was the winner of the stock car feature on Friday after pulling off a late comeback of his own. Defending points champion Rocky Alexander led for most of the race after starting on the pole.

Alexander and 2011 rival Robby Rosselli were neck-and-neck in the early going, with the former pulling away on lap nine. Flory then moved into second spot and challenged Alexander on lap 14, only for the Estevan native to pull away again. Finally, Flory made another move late in the

race and this time got past Alexander to take the checkered flag. Gregg Mann of Estevan was third, followed by Kelly Henderson and Rosselli, both of Minot. There were no cautions in the race. In the hobby feature, Michael Dionne grabbed the lead on the fifth lap

and never let it go, despite three cautions after that point. Gary Goudy Sr. led the first four laps before being passed by Dionne. Blaine Durward of Trenton, N.D., finished second, followed by Leevi Runge of Lampman, Rod Pickering of Weyburn and Ryan Swenson of Midale. The heat winners in the modified class were Cory Mohr, Riley Emmel, Jim Harris and Mike Hagen. The stock car heat winners were James Frayn, Gregg Mann and Rocky A l e x a n d e r, w h i l e t h e hobby heat winners were Dionne, Dustin Byler and Gary Goudy Jr. Racing at the Speedway resumes this weekend with the McComb Automotive Fast 40 on Saturday, which is the $3,000-to-win mod feature. That will be followed by the Estevan stop on the Dakota Classic Modified Tour on Tuesday.

Tornados split double bill with Weyburn The Estevan TS&M Tornados went from one end of the scale to the other during a doubleheader against Weyburn on Thursday. The Tornados (5-5) won the first game 12-6 and lost the second 8-0 in Baseball Regina peewee AAA baseball action at Cactus Park. The first game marked only the third loss of the year for first-place Weyburn (12-3). The Tornados got a strong outing on the hill from Carter Kuchinka, who threw four and twothirds innings to help his team to victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He pitched awesome,â&#x20AC;? said Tornados head coach Landon Lafrentz. After a quiet start, the

Tornados had a big inning to take control of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty tight until the third inning, and then we blew it open and scored five or six runs in the fourth,â&#x20AC;? said Lafrentz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody hit the ball, which really helped.â&#x20AC;? In the second game, the Tornados found themselves flummoxed by Weyburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitcher and struggled to get anything going at the plate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weyburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got this kid whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a beast. We seem to have trouble every time we face him,â&#x20AC;? said Lafrentz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody seemed to be able to put the bat on the ball. I think we only had one hit the whole game.â&#x20AC;? Tornados starter Brett MacMurchy was solid, but

didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any run support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had good pitching that game, we just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any offence generated,â&#x20AC;? said Lafrentz. It was a rare weeknight doubleheader for the peewee club, but with the games shortened to five innings, Lafrentz said fatigue wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too bad. It was a nice night out. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played games in so long that I think they were happy to get back at it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Tornados were scheduled to play at a tournament in Brandon on the weekend. The team will host Swift Current for a doubleheader on Saturday. Game times are 1 and 4 p.m. at Cactus Park.

Estevan Mercury

Low-scoring week for Tower Wolves This is one trend that the Estevan Tower Wolves hope is over. The Saskota Baseball League senior team managed to play two games last week without scoring a single run. On Tuesday, they lost 2-0 to the Carnduff Astros at Lynn Prime Park, and on Thursday they played the Wawota Pats to a rare scoreless tie in Wawota. The two games were a stark contrast from the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-7 win over the Lampman Cubs on June 25. I n Wa w o t a , b o t h teams came up empty at the plate against strong pitching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had some opportunities, but we made a couple of baserunning mistakes where we should have won the game,â&#x20AC;? said Wolves pitcher Justin Fieber.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hitting the ball as well as we would like to. Their pitcher was throwing strikes, so good on him.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, Estevan starter Devin Aspinall also stymied the Patsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hitters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has a lot of movement on his pitches. If you do that, you can win a lot of ball games, and the defence was good behind him,â&#x20AC;? said Fieber. On Tuesday, Carnduff scored runs in the third and fifth innings and shut down the Wolvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offence to earn the win. The game was called in the bottom of the seventh inning due to the lights being knocked out by weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We gotta get hitting the ball a little better, but that was a good pitcher we were facing. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing against a pitcher like that with good defence

behind him, you gotta earn your runs,â&#x20AC;? said Fieber. The air was dripping with humidity that night, but Fieber didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it affected the Wolvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everybody felt good because of the humidity. Your body feels loose and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to warm up as long.â&#x20AC;? The Wolves (3-4-2) were set to visit the Oxbow Chiefs last night and will travel to Carnduff next Tuesday to face the Astros. Despite suffering back-to-back shutout losses, Fieber said there has been one bright spot for the team recently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom half of our lineup has been hitting the ball, which is a good thing to see. I think by the end of the season, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have nine guys who can play a good ball game together.â&#x20AC;?

Estevan Tower Wolves pitcher Adam Ziegler delivers the ball during the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-0 loss to Carnduff on June 26.

New Steelers coach to shake up playbook The new head coach of the Estevan Lions Club Steelers is looking to make it easier for the bantam football club to succeed this fall. Phil Zajac was announced as the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new coach at a Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football press conference last Tuesday. Zajac spent the last three years as a linebackers coach with the ECS Elecs and wants to pass on his coaching knowledge to a younger age group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at the community and where I can most affect the future of football in Estevan, I put a lot of thought and consideration into it and I thought that head coaching the Steelers would be a good opportunity for me to help prepare these guys to make the ECS team a little stronger,â&#x20AC;? said Zajac.

H e â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s p l a n n i n g o n shortening the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playbook so that the players can get a small number of plays down pat before adding new ones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the biggest consistency factor in football that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to do this year is ... to be very good at doing a few things, as opposed to doing a whole bunch of things not so good.â&#x20AC;? He said there will likely be 12-15 offensive plays to start, along with four or five defensive looks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just run â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em and run â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em till we know them like the back of our hands, and once we have that done, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start to add plays as the season goes,â&#x20AC;? said Zajac. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see some very unique and creative offence and defence that I think will give us a

defi nite advantage when we play the other teams from Regina.â&#x20AC;? The Steelers posted an 0-8 record in the Regina Minor Football bantam division last year. The year before that, they were 5-3, and Zajac is hoping for a return to that form, predicting six wins for the team this fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be a very fast and tenacious defence and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be very aggressive. We may not be an overpowering offence, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be an overnumbering offence and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the key to our success,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be nice if the community comes out and watches these boys play because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always fun, especially when you play at home, to have some fans come and cheer for you.â&#x20AC;?

Estevan fighters to clash in Prince Albert Four mixed martial arts fighters from Estevan are tentatively scheduled to fight at Hard Knocks 26 in Prince Albert later this month. Derek Daku, Mike Geib, Josh Heinz and Greg Alberts are taking their talents to the northern city to fight on the July 19 card. It will mark the first time since Hard Knocks Fighting Championshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansion to Estevan last fall that local fighters will be on a card elsewhere. Hard Knocks marketing director Cord Crowthers said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of the growth of MMA in Estevan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going on road trips. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just fighting here. The first team is going up to Prince

Albert July 19 to take a team from Estevan Combat Sports and Fitness to fight with Hard Knocks up there and represent Estevan,â&#x20AC;? said Crowthers. Daku will be looking to bounce back after losing his first career fight at Hard Knocks 24 on June 1 in Estevan. He lost that much-anticipated heavyweight title bout to Devon Smith after defeating Justin Schmit and Dusty Shingoose in his previous fights. This time around, Daku will face Jesse Haywood of Vancouver. Both fighters have 2-1 career records. Geib is looking for his first win in his second career fight, after losing to Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Craig Gaudry at Hard

Knocks 24. He will fight Jordan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor of Kenora, Ont. Heinz was scheduled to fight on the June 1 card in Estevan, but it fell through when his opponent, Lee Ruff, was injured in training. Heinz, who runs Estevan Combat Sports and Fitness, is up against Randy Coyer of Thompson, Man. Alberts will face James Sanderson of La Ronge in his first career fight. As for the upcoming Sept. 14 card in Estevan, Crowthers said there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much to report yet regarding what the fight card will look like. He did say that Hard Knocks is â&#x20AC;&#x153;working feverishlyâ&#x20AC;? to include a female fight.

The Estevan Power Tech Badgers participated in the provincial squirt C softball championship on the weekend in Conquest. The under-12 squad posted a 3-1 record in the round-robin before bowing out on Sunday with a 13-11 loss to the Oxbow Angels in the quarter-final. The Badgers opened the tournament on Friday with a 15-1 walloping of Delisle. Later in the day, they lost 9-8 to Hudson Bay in their only defeat of the round-robin. On Saturday, the Badgers began with a 15-12 victory over Kerrobert and followed that up with a 2011 win over Kindersley. The Badgers finished second in their pool. Meanwhile, the Zone 1 bantam playdowns were held in Estevan on Saturday to determine the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative at

Estevan Mercury

Big Dogs take fifth place in PGLL standings Big Dogs head coach Evan Handley believes a spot in the semifinals is within reach for his club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It depends on (how many players) we have. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a game where we can go in knowing we have a chance to win it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we go in there and play hard and get some breaks here and there and capitalize on our chances, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a game we can win and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the A side. It would be really nice to get in there (on the A side). If not, it gives us a good chance to win the B title.â&#x20AC;? Handley added that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take everything the Big Dogs have to knock off a Mustangs team that has a rich history of success in the PGLL. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just need to capitalize on our chances, have big games from our guys that are there, we need Rhett (Handley) and (Ryan) Curzon to put the ball in the net, (Ty) Currie and (Michael) Bittman to be a strong physical force. We need our other guys to play hard, play tough and play really well defensively.â&#x20AC;? The Big Dogs enter the playoffs knowing they are coming off their best regular season to date, a year in

The Estevan Tarpon Energy Big Dogs had extra reason to be excited for Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular season finale against the Saskatoon Smash. It was to be the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first game ever at Spectra Place. However, the game was forfeited by the Smash on Friday because they only had eight players available. That took away the Big Dogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chance to play in the new facility, but also gave them a crucial two points in the Prairie Gold Lacrosse League standings. The Big Dogs (3-5-2) finish the regular season in fifth place in the PGLL, their best record since entering the league in 2008. That puts them up against the fourth-place Moose Jaw Mustangs (5-41) in the quarter-finals of the PGLL playoffs to be held July 14-15 in Saskatoon. Estevan edged Moose Jaw 15-13 in the only meeting between the two teams this year on May 27 in Moose Jaw. However, there is a marked difference in goal differential between the two squads. The Mustangs scored 108 goals and allowed 93 this year, while the Big Dogs scored 89 and allowed 135.

Aside from the forfeit win on Saturday, the team defeated Yorkton in their season opener May 12 and Moose Jaw later in the month. The Big Dogs also earned ties against the Regina Rifles on June 8 and the Saskatoon Steelers on June 24. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We improved from Day 1 on our defence, and our offence got more potent

as the year went on,â&#x20AC;? said Handley. Dylan Smith (19 goals, 49 points) and Rhett Handley (37 goals, 47 points) led the team on the scoresheet, finishing second and third in the league respectively. But Handley said players like Kaleb Memory, Dustin DeBruyne, Katie King, Ryan Juhlke and Mark Moriarty were just as crucial, as their effort and commitment â&#x20AC;&#x153;makes other guys work harderâ&#x20AC;? and also

helps to fight against fatigue during games. Handley said he felt a change in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to games this year, with many of his players now having at least a year of PGLL experience under their belts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having those guys here, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to spend that time going over the offence or the power play. They know it and they just do it. I think it showed in that we scored a lot more

goals this year than last year, and we had more guys scoring goals,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was no game in, game out going in and thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a chance to win this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Handley said he felt passing and retrieving loose balls were two of the major skill areas his team improved on this season. Curzon and Kelsy Omland are the only players the Big Dogs will lose to graduation.

At long last, the wait is over for Speedway You just know they were holding their breath. Although the forecast was sunny, and the first few hours of the day bore that out, you know the track officials at Estevan Motor Speedway were taking a â&#x20AC;&#x153;seeing is believingâ&#x20AC;? approach to Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s races. After seeing the first four race nights of the season wiped out, including the debacle of May 18, when the rain started in the evening and forced a late postponement, it was hard to exhale until the first heat races started. Mother Nature finally left the dirt track alone. The presence of the Speedway in the Estevan summer sports scene was sorely missed over the last two months, and now we cross our fingers for no more rainouts. The attendance at Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener was hard to predict due to the Saskatch-

ewan Roughriders playing their season opener the same night in Hamilton. Despite that, the community came through with flying colours to support the track, with an estimated crowd of well over 1,000. They got a good show, with two of the three features being decided in the last couple of laps and the three big races being largely free of cautions. The trackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season will gear up very quickly now, with the $3,000-to-win feature running on Saturday, followed by the Dakota Classic Modified Tour on Tuesday. The mod tour stop is the highlight of the year, and with the Fast 40 being rescheduled from its original date in May, there should be lots of out-ofprovince drivers for that too. *** The silly season hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out been quite as silly this year, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean no extremely questionable contracts have been dished out by NHL general managers. The leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free agency period began on Sunday with a decidedly thin crop available for teams to address their needs. Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, the two biggest fish on the market, hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finished wading through a smorgasbord of offers as of Tuesday morning. Lots of other players have found new homes, though, many of them of

the fourth line or third defence pair variety. A lot of those players were signed for reasonable dollars, but other deals make you wonder if the GMs know that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new collective bargaining agreement on the way, probably with a lower salary cap than the $70.2 million figure recently put in place. After signing Jiri Hudler to a four-year, $16 million contract on Monday, the Calgary Flames now have the second-highest payroll in the league at just under $66 million.

Ye s , t h e C a l g a r y Flames. A team that was already paying too much money to the likes of Matt Stajan, Mike Cammalleri and Jay Bouwmeester went out and spent about $55 million (including $17.5 million next year) on Hudler, Dennis Wideman, Roman Cervenka, Lee Stempniak and Cory Sarich. Which of those guys is going to get them past the first round of the playoffs, again? (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m being generous. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be lucky to make the playoffs.) Jay Feaster is in denial of the fact that this core will not get him anywhere. The longer he puts off a rebuild, the more pain Flames fans will endure. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m speaking as a fan of a team that waited three years too long to make that call.

The worst free agent signings so far: Filip Kuba ($8 million over two years in Florida), Jason Garrison ($27.6 million over six years in Vancouver), Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau ($16 million over four years in Colorado) and Brandon Prust ($10 million over four years in Montreal). The best so far: Martin Brodeur and Johan Hedberg (a combined $5.9 million over two years to stay in New Jersey), Brad Boyes ($1 million for one year with the Islanders) and Chris Mason ($1.25 million for one year to return to Nashville). Josh Lewis can be reached by phone at 6342654, by e-mail at sports@ estevanmercury.ca or on Twitter at twitter.com/joshlewis306. Uh, about that whole balance of power thing in the CFL...

Rondeau Cup slated for Sunday The 17th annual Rondeau Cup junior scramble golf tournament is scheduled to go ahead on Sunday at the Estevan Woodlawn Golf Club. The event had been set for June but was postponed due to rain. The nine-hole tournament will be played in a Texas scramble format, with five-person teams. The day begins at 3

p.m. with a clinic on rules and etiquette for all participants. When thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over, the tournament itself gets underway at 4 p.m. with a shotgun start. Awards and a meal will follow the event. The entry fee is $5 for Woodlawn members and $15 for non-members. Participants must register by Saturday.

– Mike Little, Principal of ECS

The pageantry that is graduation They came, they collected diplomas, they sang, marched and danced and the 172 graduates of the ECS class of 2012 had a great time celebrating their academic rite of passage. Their valedictorian implored them to remember that just because they had graduated from Grade 12, that did not entitle them to all of life’s promises. There was more work to do. Following the invoca-

tion by teacher Wes Kreklewich, Mike Little their principal and master of ceremonies for the program, told them to enjoy life’s journey and to splurge on life by doing something they love. The Grade 12 graduating ceremonies at Spectra Place attracted hundreds of family members, friends and loved ones who applauded as each deserving graduate walked across the stage to accept their Grade

12 certificate of achievement. Vice-principal Allison Holzer provided the tribute to the senior ring and pin and presented them to Bailey Holzer and Stefan Seipp who paid tribute to the parents for their undying devotion to their now young adult offspring. Philip Holzer and Doni Seipp made the response on behalf of parents, a heartfelt moment of departure in one

sense, while evoking the sense of a beginning of an exciting new chapter. Kaitlyn Pilloud and Kristen Seipp thanked the teachers for their dedication and for ensuring that they could continue to keep pursuing their dreams and their tribute was responded to by educator Grant Marshall. A video presentation featuring each of the grads was then enjoyed by the assembled audience and that

was followed by the valedictory address delivered by Kayleen Wingert. (See accompanying article on B8) The graduation choir and band directed by Allison Holzer and Kyle Whitehead (respectively) provided the appropriate interludes and the diploma presentations were carried out by viceprincipals Holzer and Walter Wood with names announced by principal Little. The grand march, fea-

turing the grads not in their caps and gowns, but rather in their grad gowns and tuxedos, followed one hour after the graduation recessional. The evening’s dance and social was completed with a lunch provided by parents and volunteers. A list of the various scholarships, awards and bursaries captured by the graduating students was also posted in the program.

Th The sun was shining hi i on the th ECS 2012 graduates d t as th they gathered t with friends and family June 27. Everyone was at the Court House for pictures in the afternoon, before moving over to Spectra Place later for the ceremonies.

ECS principal leaves strong message with grads When Mike Little took to the stage last Wednesday afternoon to address the graduating class of 2012, he spoke with some authority ... having been through this process before, but also with heart. He had a daughter among the graduating class ... but that’s been done before by others. But it still makes the event a little bit special for those on the administrative side who go through the ritual every year. This year vice-principal Allison Holzer was probably going through similar emotions since she too, was in similar circumstances.

Little opened his address to the 172 grads of 2012 with the hope that this would be a day they would not easily forget since it was the first step for them toward promising futures. “Graduation is time for decision making. Your decisions may not change the world order, but they will change your world. Today, like a builder, you are laying the foundation for your future,” he told the graduates. He noted that some of them have lofty ambitions, some plan on seeing the world, some will be content with a simpler lifestyle. He urged all of them however, to reach out to attain a per-

sonal best. The theme for the graduating class, of living every day and loving every moment was one the principal said he appreciated and in dealing with that theme, he wanted to leave them with a few messages that they might find helpful along life’s road. He noted the first message was one of realizing that life was, in fact, a journey and they, the grads, should enjoy it, noting there will be bumpy times, but the good definitely outweighs the bad. A second message was for the grads to remember to never be afraid to dream,

because the dreams could become reality with perseverance, faith, opportunity and a little luck. The third message he wanted to deliver was one of taking pride in their family, the group they owed a debt of gratitude to for standing by the grads and will continue to support them in the years to come. He also reminded the graduates to get involved in something they love to do, to find a challenge, a career that is balanced with meaningful work that can provide enjoyment daily and not to worry about what people might think of them. He said that time was a limited

resource, so it was important not to waste it on things that wouldn’t be important. “Be happy with who you are,” Little said. He also told the graduating class that saying thank you to someone, at least once a day, will lead to other good things. The principal also urged the young adults to practise patience and humility and to remember that things will come to them when they are ready to handle them. He urged them to become global citizens, to work on making the world a better place than when they found it and that could begin by protecting the environment.

And as the final two points, Little said it was important for them to exercise compassion and to live a life that adhered to their graduation theme to live every day and love every moment. “Life is too short, so cram as much fun into it as you possibly can.” Little, on behalf of the staff, closed his remarks by noting “we hope that whatever you do and wherever you go, you will fondly remember your time here and be proud to say ‘I graduated from ECS.’ May God bless you in all the years to come and may your futures be even brighter than your expectations today.”

Kayleen Wingert delivered the valedictory address to her fellow classmates.

Valedictorian delivers message of promise The following is the speech delivered by Kayleen Wingert, the 2012 ECS valedictorian: The universal truth we all must face is that everything comes to an end, whether we want it to or not. The last chapter of a good book, the last fruits of summer. But endings happen, you close the book, the seasons change. Today is one of those endings, as we say goodbye to everything that is familiar, to all that is comfortable. Although we have looked forward to our graduation our entire lives, change is not always easy. Today marks an ending, and although we are reminiscing about the past, we mustnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to look towards the future. For it is a new beginning, a chance to start fresh, to make mistakes, to try new

things. Even though the uncertainty of the future is scary, this is our time to live, to find out who we are and who we want to become. The theme for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduating class is: Live every day, love every moment. This piece of advice is one we should take to heart as we embark upon the next chapter in our lives. We have much to be thankful for today. Firstly, let us thank our teachers who have put up with us for the past 13 years. For dealing with us when we asked a question to which the answer was given about five seconds earlier, repeatedly asking to move back test dates and constantly complaining when homework was assigned. Here we have received a high degree of academic excellence. Whether we choose to continue our schooling or

join the workforce, what we have learned here has value. Next, we give thanks to our parents. Without your love and support, receiving our diplomas today would not have been possible. Words cannot measure the thanks and appreciation we give to our parents on this day. They have shaped the person we are today, and the person we will become in the future. So much a part of us, they are the small voice inside our heads and hearts that will be with us, no matter what direction life takes us. We can also be thankful for each other. For we have grown and matured together, as just four short years ago we were wide eyed little Grade 9s, clustering in the hallways. I hope that as we leave this building today, we can continue to learn from one another, and support

each other in our future endeavours. As young adults we must understand that graduating from Grade 12 does not entitle us to all of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promises. We need to realize that we must work in order to achieve our goals. Life is quid pro quo, which is Latin for what you give, is what you get. A true

testament that hard work pays off is that I am standing before you on this stage today. Now as we receive our high school diplomas, it is the responsibility of each student to use the tools we have been given, to take the road less travelled, and to fulfil the promises of all our dreams. Remember to

live, love, laugh and stay true to yourself. We all have the potential to achieve greatness. In the words of Ralph Emerson, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared with what lies within us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Congratulations and good luck to the class of 2012. We made it!

Focus on faith By Rev. Randy Kleemola St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lutheran Church Is Your Conscience Clear? What makes you feel guilty? Breaking a promise? Telling a lie? Letting down a friend? Why do you feel guilty if you steal something, or commit murder or adultery, or even if you scratch or dent someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car in a parking lot? You have a conscience - a God-given sense of right and wrong - a moral compass, so to speak. Inborn in each of us is a moral standard for our conduct, which, if we violate it, or are about to do so, causes a feeling of guilt. Sometimes thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even accompanied by physical discomfort a tightness in our chest, a knot in the pit of our stomach - often described as pangs of conscience. But in spite of the pain it can cause, our conscience is a good gift of God. Unfortunately the conscience is not an infallible guide. Ever since

mankindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall into sin, our consciences have been flawed - imperfect. The indications it gives us are not always reliable. Sometimes it will bother us when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done nothing wrong, and other times it will voice no objection when it should. Complicating this is the fact that our consciences are also informed by our upbringing, the culture in which we live, and even the civil laws of the country. For example, if one is bought up in home where a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to choose trumps the right to life, in a culture which holds up abortion as a viable option, in a country where there are no laws restricting it, it would not be surprising that your conscience would see nothing wrong with abortion. In a sinful world, odds are high that these influences will warp our conscienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perception of right and wrong. Even worse, our adversary the devil also seeks to use our conscience to his advantage. God designed the conscience to produce guilt when we sin so that we would real-

ize our sinful state, see our need for forgiveness and a Saviour and turn to Christ. The devil too, wants us to see our sinful state, but to conclude that our guilt is so great that we are beyond Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help. Thus he would lead us to despair. Failing that, he would encourage us to think that we can make up for our sins by doing good works - balancing the ledger so to speak. Anything that would lead us away from trusting in Christ alone suits his purpose. A further tactic he employs if he can is to neutralize the stirrings of our conscience. If he can get us to act against our conscience enough times, we will cease to hear what our conscience would tell us. It becomes â&#x20AC;&#x153;seared over as by a hot ironâ&#x20AC;? the Bible says. (1 Tim. 4:2) Then we are in a sad state indeed - out in the darkness with no guide. So how can we have a clear conscience? Use it the way God intended. When it accuses you of sin - and it surely will have cause - acknowledge and confess it to your heavenly Father. As St. John said,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.â&#x20AC;? (1 Jn. 1:8-9)

Christ took all of our sins with Him to the cross and gives us in exchange His perfect righteousness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.â&#x20AC;? (Rom. 8:1) Not even our

Estevan Mercury

Do you remember? TEN YEARS AGO: The grand opening of Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest grocery store took place on June 20 with a number of dignitaries in attendance. Manager Ed Dzik handled the ribbon-cutting ceremonies to officially open the Garden Market IGA outlet. The 38,000 square foot store was located at the west end of the Estevan Shoppers Mall. The Estevan Fair was over for another year, and the president of the Estevan Exhibition Association said she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been happier with the attendance figures. Had it not been for the wet, windy and cold weather conditions the night of Wednesday, June 19, Carmella Petterson said new attendance records probably

would have been set. On the first day, June 17, 1,700 people attended the fair, while on June 18, another 2,700 flowed through the gate. The final day saw attendance drop to 1,250. West Coast Amusements provided the midway that featured over 30 rides, as well as food booths and games of chance. Fifteen-year-old Aaron Turnbull, who had been one of the most consistent North Star hobby stock drivers this season at the Estevan Motor Speedway, put on a spectacular show on Saturday, June 29 when he won the feature race. The win was the first major victory of Turnbullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s racing career, and came just two weeks after hew on his first heat

Trucking in the A-final at Cossette Park to win the 25-team tournament. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t every day that a farmer from Torquay would have the opportunity to rub shoulders and hobnob with one of North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business legends, but it happened to Glen Forrester. The young Torquay district man had the opportunity to meet Donald Trump while attending the annual Grammy Awards ceremonies in New York, and the two hooked up for a brief conversation and a couple of photos during the pre-Grammy reception. Forrester was attending the awards show as an escort for a voting member of the Grammy Awards Academy, Glenda Paradee of Phoenix, Ariz., who was also a freelance photographer. Forrester said he spent a good part of each winter in Phoenix where he met Paradee and they had dated

race at the speedway. Josh Klarholm and Dylan Lafrentz, two Macoun School students, received word they had been selected as winners in the provincial Nutrition Month poster contest. As a result of their win, they were both recipients of family passes to the Regina Exhibition as well as a package of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cool Milkâ&#x20AC;? merchandise. Their winning posters were to be displayed at the fair in Regina. TWENTY YEARS AGO: The annual Estevan and District Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fastball League Red-Eye Slowpitch Tournament title was claimed by the Estevan Fine Foods squad. Fine Foods defeated Regina Bears

THIRTY YEARS AGO: Torquay held their annual sports day on June 26 with ball games the featured entertainment. The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A-side was won by the hometown Jets who defeated Midale Maroons 6-5, while the Goodwater Blues were victorious over the Torquay Airplanes on the B-side. The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

A-side was taken by Tribute when they defeated Maxim, and the B-side was won by Goodwater who defeated Torquay. S a s k a t c h e w a n U rban Affairs Minister Paul Schoenhals announced the government had completed a review of the property tax rebate programs, and it was decided to increase both the rentersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; property tax rebate and the senior citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; school tax rebate. He said the rentersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rebate would increase to a maximum of $150 from $115. Under the seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; school tax rebate program, the maximum rebate on a home would increase to $510 from $460; on a business to $300 from $250; and on a farm to $425 from $375. The maximum property improvement grant for principal residences would be $230; for a business, $250; and for a farm, $375.

Benson 4-H Beef Club happenings

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

The Benson 4-H Beef Club is coming to the end of a very busy year. The club has 11 members; namely, Calay Mantei; Marlee Dukart; Kalee Donavon; Katelynn, Ashley and Lorie Tedford; Emily Geisel; Allison and Rachel Mack; Nigel and Mason Mack. They held six regular meetings as well as a Christmas party at Estevan Bowl. Members went bowling and exchanged gifts, which was a lot of fun.

Constable Tyler McMillen of the Estevan Police Service, along with the police dog Harvey, attended one meeting. He spoke to members about the dangers of drugs and also did a demonstation with Harvey. It was a really neat and educational experience. Thank you was extended to Const. McMillen for coming and teaching members about the dangers of drugs. Club speeches were held with Alf Tide and Katrina Ulbrich from the Es-

tevan Toastmasters Club acting as judges. The kids did a great job with their speeches, and a vote of thanks was extended to the judges for coming out and listening. The Benson club also hosted the 4-H district speeches at the Taylorton Room, and they were fantastic. The Tedford girls from the Benson club won for the junior, intermediate and senior divisions, and as a result moved on to the SE Regional speak-off. Katelynn did an excellent

job, qualifying for the provincial level where she placed second. Great job, girls! Meghan Dukart hosted a fun day and some of the 4-H members went swimming and enjoyed a barbecue after where they got to visit and socialize with other club members who had arrived. It was a lot of fun. A thank you was extended to Meghan, to TS&M for donating the hamburgers, and to Enbridge for donating the barbecue. It was a deli-

cious meal! During the year, some members participated in a steer and heifer show and also went on a tour of a feedlot. There was a demo day in June where the members moved to various stations doing different activities. One involved making cherry pie in a jar. The club held a big barbecue fundraiser for the consignment sale on June 23 at the Estevan Motor Speedway. Thank you was extended to Mack Auction Services for let-
