Although Estevan was hit by a nasty thunderstorm Saturday, it was largely spared from the damage seen in other areas of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The storm, which descended upon the area around 5 p.m., brought rain, high winds and hail to the area. Estevan, and a large portion of southern Saskatchewan, was under a tornado watch for much of the day, but it appeared the storm was going to miss the area and continue on a northeast trajectory. However, it changed paths and began moving toward the city. While nothing has been confirmed, it’s estimated that over two inches of rain fell inside of an hour. That deluge led to flash flooding in a number of areas including Fourth Street, the Willow Greens Mobile Home Park, the Estevan Shoppers Mall parking lot and the Hillcrest

A three-person team from SaskPower was dispatched Saturday afternoon to make repairs to the power lines in the 1200 block of First Street that were taken out of service due to large tree branches that fell on them during a fierce storm in the area that included high winds, pelting rain and hail. area. On Fourth Street, the water quickly began pouring over the

curbs and made its way toward businesses in the downtown core. There have been no reports any

buildings in the area being water damaged as of press time. The flooding at the mall was centred in the area around the new Tim Hortons store. Before long the drive-thru was flooded out and actually stayed that way until Sunday morning. Despite the obvious body of water, some patrons actually decided to use the drive-thru, including one driver whose car stalled and had to be pushed out by restaurant staff. Residents of the Willow Park Greens made the most of the situation, as some placed dinghys in the water and went for a quick ride. In the Hillcrest area, blocked storm drains caused a flood at the intersection of Duncan Road and Rooks Avenue. According to reports at the scene, the water was over three feet high before residents were able to clear some of the storm drains. Crews ⇢ A2

It’s time to take West Nile virus precautions seriously The time and conditions are ripe for an infestation of the Culex tarsalis mosquito, the carrier of the dreaded West Nile virus. The risk of contracting the virus is increasing, and the mosquitoes carrying the potential of infecting local citizens have been identified in the Sun Country Health Region.

“This is one month earlier than in 2012,” said a media release issued by the health region on July 12. The provincial risk map has moved the dial to “moderate” from the previous “low” scale for the Sun Country region in the southeast sector. The Culex tarsalis mosquitoes have been in

the SCHR traps for a couple of weeks, they said, and that was confirmed by last week’s report concerning Estevan’s larvicide program that is used each spring and summer to control the mosquito population. Larry Doan, of Southeast Tree Care, the company charged with the job of keeping the mosquito

population in check, said there were some Culex tarsalis mosquitoes identified in the traps and the sample scoops they were making on a regular weekly basis as the peak summer season approached. “Everyone should start now to get in the habit of taking precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes

in places where they live, work and play,” said Dr. Shauna Hudson, the chief medical officer for Sun Country. With the positive tests now confirmed, it is important to be taking those precautions to reduce the risk of exposure, Hudson reiterated. Following ⇢ A2

Negotiations for truck route land moving slowly There are still expectations, or at least hope, of a truck route around the city of Estevan by 2016, but negotiations with some of the affected landowners regarding the purchase of right-of-way properties have not been completed yet. Officials with the provincial Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure said last week there has been some preconstruction work undertaken with the $50 million project. That work included such items as a detailed design, the movement of utilities to accommodate the new route and some right-of-way planning. Kirsten Leatherdale, senior communications consultant for the ministry, said the selected route runs north of the city from the intersection of Highway 39 and the Shand Road to Highway 39 west of the city. The 12-kilometre stretch will initially be constructed as a two-lane road. The plan, however, is developed to allow for twinning, and interchanges at the west and east ends, and at the junction of Highway 47 if future traffic volumes will

require them. It is still expected that actual construction could begin later this year with the entire project expected to take three years to complete. Leatherdale noted that the Government of Canada is contributing up to $17 million of the cost under the Building Canada Fund mandate. When completed, it is anticipated the truck route will improve traffic flow in and around the city, enhance safety and generate potential development opportunities in the area. Some properties adjoining the future truck route have already been purchased and developers have announced a variety of plans that will unfold in concert with the actual construction of the highway once it begins. “We’ve come up with a plan for a bypass that meets current demands and allows the bypass to evolve as traffic volumes and the Estevan area grow,” said Leatherdale in conclusion.

Earthworm Haul

Fjola Keating unearthed a mother lode of earthworms when she visited a small tree planting project near Churchill Park last week. She proudly displays her “catch” for the camera.

Crews called to action to restore power ⇠ A1 SaskPower crews were also called to action as the wind knocked a tree onto a power line on the 1100 block of First Street. The downed tree caused a power outage in the immediate area, but it was restored about 90 minutes later. Outside of Estevan, there have been varying reports of damage. The WeyburnHalbrite area was hit with large hail, with some saying the stones were as large as grapefruits. Although nothing has been announced by Sask. Agriculture, there have been reports the hail caused signifi-

cant damage to crops in that area as well as around Torquay. The Carlyle and Redvers areas were also slammed with hail and high winds. A number of Redvers residents were without power until Sunday evening because of the damage. As bad as Saturday’s storm was for some, there were fears on Monday it may have been an appetizer. Both Environment Canada and the Weather Network reported Monday morning that Saskatchewan could see “Oklahoma-style” thunderstorms and

Correction In last week’s front page article regarding the start of the curbside garbage collection in Estevan there was an error regarding the starting date for the new collection process. The curbside collection service will start on July 30 for all affected areas. Beginning the week of July 29 Estevan residents should be placing their garbage carts in the front of their homes for curbside collection — unless you have received a letter from Regens Disposal Ltd. stating otherwise. The dates contained in the article that appeared in last week’s edition were incorrect, and we apologize for any confusion that may have occurred as a result.

Storm slams into Estevan and area

The skies north of Estevan were rather ominous looking on Saturday as a major storm moved into the area and dumped over two inches of rain in a short period of time. Photo by Billy Durr. Willow Park Greens also had issues after the rain, as an area of the park was flooded out after the storm.

Changes coming to Estevan Constituency’s west The provincial constituency boundaries are being redrawn as Saskatchewan’s Legislative Assembly is adding three constituencies to satisfy the growing population. The previous boundaries, set in 2002, were made for 58 constituencies, but for the next provincial election in late 2015 or early 2016, 61 MLAs will be elected to the legislature. Every 10 years the boundaries are reconsidered and revised to reflect the changes in population in each pocket of the province. As the population

swells in this part of the province, the geographical footprint of the constituency will continue to decrease.

The population quotient number for each constituency is 13,059. Boundaries are realigned to keep each

constituency as close to that figure as possible. Last September, the Saskatchewan Constituency Boundaries Commission was in Estevan for local consultations at the courthouse regarding the proposed changes to electoral boundaries. A pair of local delegates made submissions at that time requesting there be no changes to the constituency, particularly where the eastern boundary was concerned. It seems those wishes have been granted, as the coming changes involve redrawn boundaries only

to the western border of the Estevan constituency. Currently, the Town of Radville and villages of Beaubier and Lake Alma are part of the Estevan constituency and their residents vote for the Estevan MLA. For the next provincial election, those communities will be part of the WeyburnBig Muddy constituency. The Estevan constituency will now reach west a little farther than Oungre, while maintaining its boundaries north to Halbrite and Benson, and southeast to North Portal. The boundaries around Benson will

remain unchanged. Frobisher will also remain in the Cannington Constituency, though the initial proposal had the village moving into Estevan’s. The province passed a bill in May approving the boundary changes and the addition of three new constituencies. Two new constituencies will be added within Saskatoon while one will be added in Regina. Only two constituencies will see no changes to their borders, Athabasca and Cumberland in the northern part of the province.

It’s always best to be prepared In light of the recent events in Lac-Megantic, Que., in which a train carrying crude oil derailed in the middle of the town of about 6,000 residents, there may be some wondering about the procedures in the face of a potential similar disaster in Estevan. Anyone who has spent time in the community knows there are a number of trains rolling through the Energy City each day carrying crude oil and other substances labeled as dangerous goods. A derailment occurred in the city in August 2004, involving six cars carrying anhydrous ammonia. About 150 people were removed from their homes for a couple of days following the incident. Another derailment occurred near Oxbow earlier this year, following a collision between a truck and rail car, causing 22 cars to derail and crude oil to spill. Those incidents were ultimately disaster-free, with no serious consequences to the community at large, but it is a reminder that Estevan isn’t immune to a potential disaster similar to that in Quebec. While hoping it doesn’t happen and taking every precaution to make sure it doesn’t, it’s still important to be prepared. Estevan does have plans for just such an event. These scenarios are played out regularly as the city’s emergency units meet monthly to discuss what plans are in place should

The city of Estevan has again expressed its displeasure with the facility’s location and has asked for it to be moved. File photo. something go horribly wrong. Helen Fornwald, Emergency Measures Organization co-ordinator for the City of Estevan, noted there are almost 40 different agencies that sit in on these monthly meetings, from police and fire services

to representatives of St. Joseph’s Hospital and the Salvation Army. It’s a logistical issue just keeping everyone on the same page, so communication between each agency is key. “When you have that amount of people, it is challenging to make sure you get the same message out,” she said, regarding the large number of agencies that must spring to action if a disaster strikes. “Every time we go through a disaster event,

we record the emergency response. It’s a continuous learning process,” said Fornwald about how regularly emergency plans are revisited and revised. “When an event strikes, we certainly take a look and make sure we try to be prepared. You can’t be prepared for everything that comes, but we do our best to be as prepared as possible.” Each year, table-top exercises are run for the EMO, and every few years a live mock disaster is set up. “We get all our agen-

cies together, we have observers that come from Regina, and what happens is everybody sits down, we have a situation and then we have inputs into it,” said Fornwald, adding that the timeline and scenarios are played out step by step. “Then each agency, as things pertain to their area, have to deal with (the problem).” Fornwald plans out the scenarios that will be worked through each year. This year’s disaster involved a plane crash at the Estevan airport. “It was great because a lot of people in our agencies weren’t familiar with the airport, the lobby and the hangars. It was a great learning experience,” she said, noting airport personnel were on hand to provide their expertise of the buildings and grounds. This year, she said they are also looking at their emergency response plans with CN and CP Rail. Dealing with the two rail companies that pass through the area daily, the parties share information about their emergency response plans and work together to see how each plan may be complemented by the other. Willow Park Greens was evacuated in June 2011 when the water in the Souris River rose well above its banks and threatened the mobile home community. Evacuation plans are prepared for the entire city if such a drastic measure needs to be taken. “We have a procedure that we do follow when we evacuate,” said Fornwald. “In the event that we need to evacuate, we set up at the fire hall if that’s the proper location, and the emergency is not in that area.”

Then it’s a matter of getting the information out to residents, which would be done via radio and online through social media networks as well as calls throughout the neighbourhoods. There is an evacuation route map for all residents available on the City’s website. She said those routes should be strictly adhered to, as taking a shortcut may interfere with emergency responders. The evacuation would be led by Estevan Police Services, and Estevan Fire Rescue Services would provide assistance as necessary. Tuning into local radio stations would be important, as that’s where local reception centres would be identified. Reception centres are set up at the Estevan leisure centre and Estevan Comprehensive School. Fornwald noted that in 2011, those evacuated from Willow Park Greens were moved to the leisure centre. In the event an evacuation is required, she suggested all residents should have an emergency kit prepared and ready in their homes, complete with food, water, clothing and any other necessary personal items. If there is an evacuation, she also said, it’s important to leave a note at your home letting authorities know when you left and where you went. There are several steps to take to ensure your home is safe during an evacuation. Shutting off any cooking appliances like an oven is important. If time allows, turning off the main electrical switch, water supply and natural gas will help as well, and Fornwald said everyone should, of course, lock their doors behind them.

RM of Coalfields passes 100 mark on the fly How simple and straight-forward it was in 1913. Tending to the needs of the newly minted Rural Municipality of Coalfields No. 4, meant you had to pay some attention to the immediate details, throw in some volunteer hours to get certain jobs done and everything else pretty well took care of itself. Fast forward to 2013, and things are vastly different. The RM of Coalfields is big business with many demands facing it on agriculture, economic, public works and social fronts. Those stark differences were made apparent at the RM of Coalfields’ 100th anniversary party staged in the RM’s newly constructed maintenance and storage garage in the Village of Hirsch on July 13. Reeve Stan Lainton, who has served on the council for 17 years, 14 of them as the reeve, noted that his father had also been a councillor and he could recall as a youngster joining his dad for a visit to the RM shed years ago when the small building housed a single grader and two little mowers

Expansion became necessary a few years after that as the equipment grew in number and size, and now another new facility is needed to help store and repair four graders, two tractors, mowers and other equipment for seven operators. The administration office also includes up to three people. “We just purchased a new grader and tractor,” Lainton told The Mercury. “We could use another operator. We have 325 miles of road to take care of now.” Lainton said there are still a few areas that require

more attention following the spring and summer floods of 2011. “Places that were softened up and tough to maintain to begin with. We have to keep up with the muskrats who like to bore under the road beds and weaken them. We have to hold them under control,” he said, referring to just some of the day-to-day events that taxpayers don’t always consider when annual budgets come up for review. Lainton and Deputy Reeve Paul Deren said the RM of Coalfields is still dominated by agricultural

landowners and agrarian pursuits, but there have been forays made into dividing properties into smaller acreages for residential development. They explained that a minimum of three acres and a maximum of 10 acres can be used for residential pursuits and hobby farming with a maximum of five dwellings on a quarter. With an overall population of 395, there will be further challenges for the traditional way as current senior farm owners sell their land to fewer and fewer buyers who are more interested in farming on a corporate scale. Lainton said when the 2011 floods arrived the maintenance and repair side of the business absorbed most of their time and money. He said there are still outstanding claims to be processed by the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program (PDAP) for up to $1 million, but he wasn’t holding his breath. They couldn’t afford to wait for any additional PDAP assistance since a bridge had to be repaired and grid roads that were totally destroyed had

to be rebuilt and maintained along with more than 25 miles of trenching that took place to help with drainage. There were dikes to build for RM home owners and pumps to bring in to keep the waters at bay. “We were still doing assessments and digging last summer and into this summer,” Lainton said. “But most of the land around here is back into production, I still have one home quarter under water, but most are back to work.” Don Taylor, the Division 1 director for the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM), brought greetings from that body to the Coalfields celebration in Hirsch. “Think of the technology they could call upon in 1913 compared with what you have today,” he said. “Back in 1913 they would have had virtually nothing to call on to help them other than each other. Now what about the next 100 years, will it evolve as effectively as it did for the first 100?” During the course of the celebration that included free food and refreshments plus a number of door prizes and raffles, it was announced by administrator Val Pelton that the RM of Coalfields council had agreed to commit to a 10-year sponsorship of the Weldon School’s breakfast program in Bienfait. Weldon School Community Council and breakfast club co-ordinators Lucille Michel and Melissa Rensby were on hand to collect the first cheque. Later, the two said the program’s original sponsorship had just recently expired, so the RM’s offer

came at the right time. The program can be operated within a budget of about $6,000 annually, they said. Souris-Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki brought greetings from the federal government and noted how much it took to keep a rural municipality moving forward in today’s new world order. “Your municipal government is the government on the ground. They are the ones who build and cut roads and stage the war on droughts and floods, and they are the ones who have stood the test of time. This is one of them … congratulations,” Komarnicki said. In his address to the nearly 100 people who had gathered for the event, Lainton said over the 100 years there had been many brave and well meaning people stepping forward to serve on council and all had served under tougher times too. “Can you even imagine setting a budget for this RM in the 1930s? Setting rates on land that was blown away? But I will say one thing, the dedication of those who serve hasn’t changed. We’ve moved from horsedrawn graders and sickle cutters to computer aided graders. We need an office staff to keep our council organized and operators to keep the snow pushed and ditches mowed and the gravel moved.” All employees of the RM were introduced to the assembled audience that enjoyed an opportunity to socialize with neighbours and take a tour of the building and equipment following the formal portion of the gathering.

What would we do? What could we do?

Last week’s tragedy at Lac-Megantic involving a runaway train and exploding oil tanker cars in the centre of the small city, is another classic example of a strange string of events occurring in a sequence that leads to an horrific outcome. A little carelessness can go a long way. This has not been a good summer for citizens in Calgary, High River or Lac-Megantic and to a lesser extent to small pockets of populations in the central and northern sectors of our own province who have been displaced due to flood waters. We can identify with their plight, at least on one level. What the Lac-Megantic incident tells us in no uncertain terms is that you can have all kinds of rules, regulations, guidelines, legislation and laws attached to your industry or service, but if the human component is going to ignore them, or only hap-hazardly apply them, then those protective regulations and laws aren’t going to mean much. The chances of something similar to this event happening again, with all these factors coming together like they did, are practically non-existent. Train operating regulations are extensive in Canada, yet they still have their accidents, usually due to the human elements. There are fewer of them, but they are still going to happen. That’s why we should always be on our toes and prepared for anything and everything when it comes to rail traffic passing through the centre of our city. We had a big scare a few years ago with the derailment of some cars containing a cargo that could have been noxious. There were no spills, no tragedy attached, but it still took several days to clean up. Will we be so fortunate the next time? There are regulations such as the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, the Railway Safety Act and provincial and federal communications regulations pertaining to movement by rail. There are rules emitted by Transport Canada and the Canadian Transportation Agency. That’s all well and good. What we have to keep in mind though is that our two national rail lines answer to no one other then themselves and a federal authority. They do not need to adhere or even listen to local concerns. They might make it seem as if they really, truly care about your community, but when they roll right across a vast continent like ours they can’t afford to get bogged down with regional concerns, community wishes or provincial legislations. Their job is to get products to their assigned destinations on time and in good condition. The only thing that really can halt them is weather and tragedy. What we have to keep in mind is that the Lac-Megantic incident involved a railroad, the Montreal-Main & Atlantic Railway is headquartered in Chicago. They apparently allow their “train crew” to consist of one person and when he got tired, he shut it down. How effectively he shut it down, is now in question and up to 50 people are now dead, perhaps because somebody forgot to set enough hand brakes on an antiquated safety system. Editorial ⇢ A7

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

A train tragedy we all understand There are many lessons to be learned from the LacMegantic, Que., train derailment disaster. But perhaps the first lesson to be learned is that what unites us now is what has united us as Canadians in the very beginning: the railroad. We are all railroad towns. Whether we are small rural Saskatchewan prairie communities, small Quebec towns like Lac-Megantic or a larger urban centre, we owe our existence to the railways. Our towns and cities were all built up around the rails station or rail yards. The railway came first. We just happened to grow up around them. They brought our great grandparents and grandparents SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

Keeping play real with kids and music There were some kids playing in the park near my home last week, and I made a careful observation … only one of them was absorbed by a smart phone iPhone or not-so-smart phone. All the rest were doing what kids can do best, playing in the dirt, grass, sand and water. There is still hope. The way I figure it, six hours on computer games should be followed by eight minutes of physical play with no apps allowed. Whaddya think? You can let your kid play Angry Birds, or you can let them listen to real live happy birds. It’s a choice, and remember, winter can last a long time. It might be a good idea to be outside as much as possible these days. Ya, I know, that hail and high wind sort of puts a halt to the outside activities for awhile. But West Nile? What are the odds? Put on the repellent and sunscreen and hit the dirt kids … it’s time to get messy! Gee, how can you tell I didn’t have to raise any kids? I just get to be the pontificating expert on the subject. Listening to late night radio allows me to ponder all kinds of things … like the conversation some musicians were having about musical instruments and why they chose to play what they play. Naturally every youngster wants to play either a guitar or trumpet … probably because they are about the loudest … outside of drums, of course. So my heart goes out to the

Norm Park All Things Considered piccolo players of the world. I mean what the heck, only the flutists will know what these poor people go through. In your typical band, they just never get heard unless they’re doing a rendition of Peter and the Wolf and the piccolo person gets their 12 seconds of fame. What a shame. It takes all instruments to make up an orchestra or band, but it seems only the loudest ones make the impression and that’s just wrong. So trumpets rule along with percussion. The others on the A list for loudness are always the guitar, saxophone and trombone with a nod to French horn and tuba if ya got ‘em. Of course when I say guitar, I refer to the electric, amplified stuff, not the more gentle acoustic versions. Clarinets and bassoons … well, you can hear them on occasion. Then you have the B listers … bass, cellos, violas and violins. Violins generally run in packs. Violin players learned long ago that the only way they’re gonna be heard from the orchestra pit, is to gang up on the trumpeters. You have four trumpets, that’s the equivalent of 20 violins on the noise scale. Five trumpets? They counter with 26 violinists and so on. Isaac Stern

to this place so that they could contribute to its prosperity. And long after the trains quit moving people, they still move our wheat, barley, potash and oil to markets — the very thing that now allows our economy to prosper and gives reason for more people to move here. Rural Saskatchewan communities that have lost their branch line service or are struggling to keep a short line truly understand the importance of these tracks. But it is also for this reason that we all can relate to the horrific events that saw 72 tankers cars roll into the Quebec town of 6,000 explode, level its entire downtown and kill a still undetermined number. We relate because what happened in Lac-Megantic could have happened in any one of our communities across the country — Quebec town, prairie village or big city. And that it was carrying oil from North Dakota — oil from the Bakken Play — makes it that much easier for people in places like Weyburn, Estevan, Kindersley and any of our oil-based communities to relate. This is an important lesson to be taken from this unspeakable tragedy, although the next important lesson is that we don’t play politics with Lac-Megantic. Sadly, this seems to be exactly what federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has already done when he seized the opportunity to make political hay out of this disaster. “We are seeing more and more petroleum products being transported by rail and there are attendant dangers involved in that,” Mulcair said less than 24 hours after the explosion. “And at the same time, the Conservative government

learned long ago he couldn’t go head-to-head with Dizzy Gillespie. Then comes the organ and piano players and the other keyboard types. They only get heard when they get amplified or when all the other instruments shut up and let the masters go to work. They have lots of things to hammer away at, so they command respect. Three valve things on a trumpet … 88 keys on a piano. I rest my case. And going back to those guitar players … acoustic and otherwise … why is it that some of them have that squeaky sound when they change chords? Is it called lazy finger? Whatever the case, let’s just say I commend all you piccolo players out there for your perseverance and maybe your slyness. After all, if we never get to hear you, we’ll never know if you’re good at it or not. Seems like a clever ruse to me. Play piccolo and get lost in the crowd. Just never volunteer to play that Peter and the Wolf thingy part, and you’ll do just fine. You’ll get to go on band trips and band camp and all those other cool things that actual musicians get to do, without ever being challenged. Oh right … don’t play Swinging Shepherd Blues either, that’s another deal breaker for dubious flute crews.

is cutting transportation safety in Canada, cutting back budgets in that area.” That Mulcair did not one have one +shred of evidence to suggest this incident was caused by anything Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government did or didn’t do is a little disgusting. In fact, early suspicions suggest tampering caused the Lac-Megantic disaster. Nor is it especially helpful to decry the dangers of rail transportation in moving hazardous petroleum products. It is simply a reality that we must do this. Research shows that rail is safer than tanker truck and pipeline is safer than rail. But given the opposition to the Keystone XL and Northern Gateway pipelines, much of it based on the pipeline companies’ records of spills, there is little public desire to convert to moving oil by pipeline that can only move petroleum in one direction. Our communities — whether they are large cities or small towns — cannot afford to rip out their tracks and move them. It would simply be too costly and, for many communities, it would be like ripping the veins out of their body. That said, the last and arguably most important lesson is that we do start examining all facets of rail movement of dangerous goods to ensure another Lac-Megantic is not repeated in someone else’s hometown. There are legitimate issues of railroad protocol, including having a single conductor on these trains. Questions on the durability of these cars are also in play. We need our railroads, but we must insure that what is moved on them is moved safely.

Letters to the Editor

July 17, 2013 A7

What will it take to get the A small note to the public government’s attention?

The Editor: We need to discuss remarks made by Minister of Highways and Infrastructure, Don McMorris on July 10. He said that Highway No. 6 south of Regina would not be twinned because there was not enough traffic to warrant twinning with 4,100 vehicles per day on that stretch of highway. However, when Highway No. 1 by Maple Creek was reopened after flooding two years ago, the Highways Ministry said it had 4,000 vehicles per day and it is twinned. Why is there a double standard? Why did our Time to Twin committee used to be able to phone a Ministry of Highways official and get traffic counts and traffic maps, but then, because we had information, sometimes ahead of the Minister, that avenue of obtaining public information has now been denied to us? This is information that we, as taxpayers, are entitled to have. Finally, in regards to the fact that our committee discovered that our Estevan weigh scales were closed and have been all winter … when we announced they were closed, there was a little attention finally placed on this subject. On July 10, Minister McMorris said there was a full complement of traffic of-

ficers. No, not at Estevan, but they are hoping to get some here. So why did a Highway Transportation official say that they “get tones of complaints about Highway 39 and if you want to get something done, you need to contact our Minister of Highways?” Yes, the RCMP officers are said to be increasing in numbers this summer, but the highway coverage we have right now, barely exists. Remember, Minister McMorris, we deserve safe highways in southeast Saskatchewan too. So maybe you feel safe around Regina with its interchanges, twinned highways and full complement of traffic officers and RCMP … but we sure as hell do not feel safe on Highway 39. To make us feel more unsafe in southeast Saskatchewan, the government has decided to allow the shipment of 70,000 barrels of oil every day, by tanker truck to Northgate. Do you know what will happen when one of the 300 to 400 tanker trucks full of oil collides with a family vehicle? Sincerely, Marge Young, co-chairwoman Time to Twin committee

Editorial

⇠ A6 Again … lots of regulations to cover off any contingency, but were they followed? When 95 per cent of our accidental tragedies occur due to human error or Mother Nature, we look at the devastation that is Lac-Megantic and can only wonder at what could have been done to prevent it … if anything. At the same time, every community that has a railway running through it, like

many do in Canada, are asking themselves these two clear questions: What is running on the rails through our town? And, what can we do about it? Right now, the answers are also clear. We don’t know and nothing. We can be prepared for the aftermath of a tragic rail event, but on the preventative side, we’re at the mercy of unknown others. That’s not too comforting.

Editor: I wanted to take time to thank those of you who participated in the prevention of bullying other people events. We should not have to be told how to treat others with respect. However, to some people, this seems to be a continuous challenge. Keep in mind we can only hold ourselves with the maturity we deserve to have in our life. Playing games with other people’s lives to cause them harm certainly cannot make someone who is struggling with low self-esteem, feel better … or the person who is bullying other people either. To the people who are participating in hate crimes … hate has a way of returning to the doorstep of the person doing the hating. I would like to remind the community to be in support of respecting one another, and if you see someone participating in hate crimes, to stand by them and change your attitude so that the person being bullied feels love instead of hate. It is a necessary function to take action so that those who are doing the crime will have a higher possibility of coming down off their high horse. If you are bullying others and you don’t know how to stop … Victim Services can assist you. Being a part of, and taking part in the community is a huge responsibility. Let’s all do the good part in the act of no hating allowed. It will help our police force to focus on more important things to benefit the community, knowing that we have more of your support. Thank you for your continued co-operation. Lori G. Meyers Estevan

CPR land is private property I am writing from Kitchener, Ontario. I am a retired railway conductor and former head office safety specialist. I worked for the CPR for 37 years. The other day, as part of coverage of the terrible events in Lac Megantic, Quebec, a story originating in Estevan was broadcast across the country. That story featured Estevan’s Mayor Ludwig expressing concern about the crude oil transload facility in the city limits. The mayor and a television reporter were shown walking on railway tracks with no-trespassing signs clearly visible in the background. I would like to remind your readers that it is both dangerous and illegal to walk or trespass on railway property. Many people are injured and killed every year doing so. Please stay safe, keep off railway property. Ronald Bowman, Kitchener, Ontario

Library looks at future with needs assessment With the landscape continuing to evolve, the Southeast Regional Library has taken a look at where it fits in Estevan’s future. The organization that governs libraries throughout southeast Saskatchewan recently began the process of conducting a needs assessment study in each of the communities it serves. The assessment for the local branch, which was among the first completed, was presented to Estevan city council at a recent meeting. Regional branch manager James Richards and Kate-Lee Donohoe, the branch manager for Estevan, both appeared before council to speak about the assessment and field questions. Richards said they looked at the assessment as a way of gathering information on each community’s opinions, needs, assets and challenges. “When we did this project we didn’t go in with the intent of trying to evaluate if we have the right hours, do we have the right materials, do we have the right staff … those kinds of things,” Richards said. “This is looking at the community of Estevan and how can the public library better serve this community, how we fit into this community. We want to build a more inclusive and relevant library.” To accomplish their goal, Richards said they first went to the local library board for their input. They also contacted 19 people who were deemed to be influential in the community and asked them a series of questions about their thoughts on Estevan and other pertinent information. “We asked them to speak on behalf of the community, not speaking of their own personal experience so much but more about as a representative of Estevan,” said Richards.

“We spent about four months doing this one. When we got through these 19 interviews we found that patterns developed very quickly.” Donohoe spoke about the Estevan-specific results and noted the interviewees come from such areas as education, healthcare, sports, arts and culture, service groups, real estate and finance. She said the first question was what attracts people to Estevan, and the most popular answer was employment. The second was on the challenges facing the city and not surprisingly, affordable housing was among the leaders. Donohoe said other issues raised were traffic, making newcomers feel welcome and infrastructure. Other questions focused on such issues as how the interviewee would change Estevan, hot button issues and topics of interest. “Health care and the lack of doctors and services were a hot button issue followed by the lack of available housing,” Donohoe said. “Topics of interest that were mentioned more than once was the lack of childcare, recreation, home and personal safety, development of the local ecomony, traffic, the transient population and drugs

and crime.” The final question was what do you want Estevan to be for the next generation. The most common answers centred around creating a safe city with less crime, while others would like to see a cleaner city. Others hope to see more parks and greenspaces. “There were a lot of answers to each of these questions. I don’t think (anything on the list) is new to anybody.” Once completed, the assessment was given to the local library board, who then created an action plan, which will be carried out over three years. As housing was a prevalent topic, the library is working to provide information to the public on all aspects of housing in Estevan and plans to create a brochure. With Estevan’s demographics continuing to change, the board also wants to help bring awareness to cultural activities and events that celebrate the city’s diversity. They have also brought more people into the library by offering their meeting rooms to local groups and hosting events for children and parents. Donohoe also plans to work with a local school this fall on a research study about how to get more teens to use the library and its services more often. “As you can see, the library is working to meet the needs of the community. Some of the action items have been addressed and some may take the whole three years to complete.” In all, 47 needs assessments are being completed and Richards estimated it will take up to five years to complete them all.

Disagreement over cab results in probation There will be no jail time served following a late night attack over a cab ride. In Estevan provincial court on Monday, Travis Stovin entered a guilty plea to assault causing bodily harm. Represented by Legal Aid, Stovin’s defence counsel and the Crown prosecutor provided a joint submission to presiding Judge James Benison, suggesting a suspension of sentence and term of probation would be suitable in

the matter. The incident began when Stovin and two friends entered a cab following the close of the Beef Bar. Another individual was already in the front seat of the cab, and the driver told the three new patrons he would be taking the first man home before taking them where they needed to go. The driver began to drive and an argument broke out between Stovin and the man in the front

seat. Before long, the cab driver had heard enough, stopped the car and ordered everyone out. Stovin and the other individual then immediately engaged in a fight. Stovin quickly got the upper hand, and Crown prosecutor Andrew Davis noted that by Stovin’s friends’ account, the fight turned into a “beating.” Stovin ended up sitting on the victim’s chest, striking him repeatedly with

closed fists. Davis said the victim experienced significant lacerations on his nose and eyebrow as well as bruises on his arms. Stovin’s friends eventually put a stop to things, intervening and removing Stovin from the victim. The victim was taken to hospital where he was treated and kept overnight. He received no further treatment following his release the next day. The joint submission gave Benison some pause,

but ultimately said the requests from the lawyers were the only thing keeping Stovin out of jail. “I have some serious concerns about this offence,” Benison told the accused. “It wasn’t just a fight. If your friends hadn’t intervened the victim may have been more seriously injured.” Benison told Stovin he should be considering sending him to jail, noting that the joint submission is

“saving” him from a more serious punishment. Benison did accept the joint submission, suspending sentence and placing Stovin on a 14-month probationary period. The conditions of the probation are that Stovin must submit a DNA sample, not possess weapons, not be in contact with the victim and seek any assessment, treatment or counselling for addictions issues and anger management as ordered.

“Flooding can cause serious electrical and structural damage to a vehicle, putting you and your family at risk” A12

— Lyle Mosiondz, SGI

SGI warns about flood-damaged vehicles If you’re thinking about buying a vehicle from Alberta, SGI is warning to be cautious of damaged vehicles coming from areas affected by the recent flooding. Many flood-damaged vehicles are not eligible to be registered for use in Saskatchewan or in any other Canadian province. However, due to the extent of the flooding in Alberta and the number of vehicles affected, there may be a delay in the identification of flood-damaged vehicles by insurers. Also, in situations where the flood damage is not covered by insurance, the vehicle’s history may not show a claim to indicate the vehicle sustained flood damage. “Flooding can cause serious electrical and structural damage to a vehicle, putting you and your family at risk,” said Lyle Mosiondz, assistant vice-president of SGI’s Auto Fund Vehicle and Support Services. “It’s really a case of buyer beware. Make sure any vehicle you’re considering buying from Alberta is safe and eligible to be registered in Saskatchewan by thoroughly researching its history prior

to completing the sale.” Flood damage to a vehicle’s electrical system can affect important vehicle safety systems, such as airbags, anti-lock braking (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) systems. The vehicle’s structural components, specifically designed to protect the occupants and absorb collision energies in the event of a crash, can become corroded. Toxic contamination due to untreated waste and mold is also a concern. Though all vehicles purchased outside of Saskatchewan must be inspected prior to registration, you can’t rely solely on the inspection since the effects of flood damage may not be readily apparent or easily identified. As a result, it’s important that you’re confident in the vehicle’s history before you consider buying it. One way to protect yourself is to buy from a licensed dealer. If anyone decides to purchase from a private seller, they should consider these tips:

• Research the vehicle’s history using SGI’s CrossCanada VIN search or a third-party site such as CarProof. • Ask the seller about damage and ensure that their response is documented, in writing, prior to the sale. • Look for signs of water damage, such as moldy or damp odours, or any signs of rust or mud in the trunk, vents, or glove box, under the seats or dashboard, or on the carpet. Also check under the hood for signs of water or silt. • Test the heater, air conditioner, lights, turn signals, gauges, radio, cigarette lighter and windshield wipers, to ensure water has not impacted electrical systems. • Have the vehicle inspected by a certified technician prior to purchasing and specifically have them check for signs of flooding and water damage. To access SGI’s Cross Canada VIN search, or for more information about the vehicle inspection process, visit SGI’s website at www.sgi.sk.ca.

Investor fees an important part of the discussion advice. For the most part, these advisors do not earn a salary but instead rely on this compensation structure. Investor advocates argue that this practice lacks the transparency investors need to make educated decisions about their portfolios. I believe the argument has merit, although I think the focus is somewhat misdirected and the discussion should be wider than trailer fees. The key issue isn’t whether or not advisors should be paid. Advisors provide a professional service and should be compensated according to the qual-

ity of their advice. Simply put, fees are paid in any industry, trade or profession for services rendered. Nobody works for free. The focus of the debate should instead be directed toward educating investors and creating an environment where fees are openly discussed and completely disclosed. Investors should be fully apprised of the cost of doing business and they should understand what they are getting in return for the fees. These are important issues, which must be addressed accordingly. Surveys have shown that many investors are un-

aware of the fees they pay. The number of investment products has increased, translating into a variety of fees with some embedded in the cost of the product and others charged separately. It’s no wonder investors are confused. To remedy this, investors should have the entire fee structure clarified in detail and provided in writing. When contracting for any kind of service a customer gets a price, and investing should not be different. Neither should advisors wait for investors to ask before disclosing fees. Costs should be part

of the discussion before the investor signs on as a client. Advisors should fully explain what the fees are paying for. What services can the investors expect in return? Is the fee associated purely with the cost of the investment transaction or will other services be included, such as financial planning? All too often fees are an afterthought that is only discussed when an issue arises. This needs to change. Advisors must take a more active role in the fee education process. No matter what the industry, there is always a cost of doing business.

However, in the investment world, a change is needed and that change is transparency. Investors must fully understand their costs so they can be confident in their investments and can make informed decisions. Without that openness the industry will remain mired in distrust and there will forever be a disconnect between advisor and client.

Lately, buzz in the investment world has revolved around trailer fees paid to advisors. This follows a recent roundtable discussion held by the Ontario Securities Commission and the release of a report late last year from the Canadian Securities Administrators deliberating the issue. Currently, some advisors are compensated by mutual fund companies via trailer fees embedded in management expense ratios. This is typically done in lieu of charging clients a separate fee for investment services and professional

Petroleum Hall of Fame inducts six

The Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame has inducted six builders of the oil and gas industry, including the Calgary lawyer who owned the mineral rights to the iconic Leduc No. 1 discovery well and the son of the toolpush who drilled that well. The six bring the total to more than 140 men and women inducted since the Hall of Fame was established in 1997. From more than a dozen nominees, the hall of fame selection committee, chaired by Gerry DeSorcy, a former chairman of the Energy Resources Conservation Board, recommended to the hall of fame’s board the following inductees: • Clement Willis Bowman. With a long career in Canada’s oil and gas industry, Bowman is best remembered as the first chairman of the Alberta Oil Sands Technology and Research Authority in the late 1970s and as president in the 1980s of the Alberta Research Council. Under his leadership, AOSTRA created the Underground Test Facility, which contributed to the development of the technology now widely used in the in situ production of bitumen.

• James Edward Clarke Carter. Carter was president of Syncrude Canada Ltd. from 1997 until his retirement in 2007. On his watch, Syncrude replaced draglines and conveyor belts with electric shovels and massive dump trucks for overburden removal and ore mining, and the technology is now used in all bitumen mining operations. Carter also advocated for responsible development, and was instrumental in establishing Syncrude’s model working relationship with Aboriginal stakeholders. • Sidney Clarke Ells (1878 – 1971). Ells was an early surveyor of the oil sands region around Fort McMurray, first undertaking a detailed survey of the oil sands along the Athabasca River in 1913 and later experimenting with hot water separation of the oil sands. He also played a key role in supporting the first bituminous sand permit issued under federal regulations before resource development was turned over to Alberta in 1930. • Eric Lafferty Harvie (1892 – 1975). A Calgary lawyer and philanthropist, Harvie won the ultimate lottery in 1947 when a cow pasture south of Edmonton on

which he held mineral rights was home to Imperial Oil’s iconic Leduc No. 1 discovery well. The resulting windfall helped Harvie establish the Glenbow Museum, the Banff School of Fine Arts, the Calgary Zoo, Heritage Park and the Devonian Foundation. • Donald Franklin Hunter. Hunter’s connections to the western Canadian oil and gas industry go back a long way: his father was Vernon (Dry Hole) Hunter, the now-legendary toolpush on the now-legendary Leduc No. 1 well that ushered in the modern oil and gas industry in Alberta. A petroleum en-

it into a $3.7 billion enterprise before consolidating all its moving parts under the Tervita banner in 2012. He was named Ernst & Young’s Canadian Entrepreneur of the Year in 2005 and his Werklund Foundation is dedicated to supporting initiatives that empower students and educators with the leadership skills needed to realize their potential. “Once again, our selection committee has done a tremendous job putting forth names of quality inductees,” said Bill Whitelaw, chairman of the Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame. “The board is

very pleased with the calibre of the six individuals who will join other key industry builders. “Anyone who has concerns about the future of our industry need only spend some time poring over the stories of Hall of Fame inductees to understand how solid the foundation they have built is.” The 2013 members of the Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame will be inducted at a celebration dinner at Calgary’s Westin Hotel on Sept. 26. Guest speaker will be Jim Ellis, new head of the Alberta Energy Regulator.

Local student receives scholarship

An Estevan student is among the recipients of a Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship Industry Scholarship. According to a press release, the program fast tracks the futures of eighty high school graduates with a $1,000 scholarship. Dustin Doerr of the Estevan Comprehensive School, who plans to study to be an electrician received the PCL Construction Management Inc. Scholarship The scholarships, provided to those who complete SYA in high school and are planning to enter into a skilled trade, motivate students to create a rewarding career through apprenticeship in the 47 designated trades and 23 subtrades. “The scholarships provide financial incentives as well as the opportunity for students to learn more about the skilled trades,” SATCC Board Chair Garry Kot said. “They also demonstrate the collaboration between industry and the Government of Saskatchewan in supporting our youth and meeting Saskatchewan’s labour market needs.”

The scholarships were initiated in 2009-10 by industry partners and the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC). To date, 39 industry partners, including business owners, labour organizations, and two provincial government agencies have contributed $951,000 to the scholarship fund. “These students have started on their way to successful careers in the trades and we offer our congratulations on their achievements,” Minister responsible for SATCC Bill Boyd said. “This is one of the initiatives we have in place to ensure skilled trades will be available to support our province’s growing economy.” The SATCC selects the schools that receive the SYA Industry Scholarship and the school selects the scholarship winner. To qualify for the scholarship, the graduate must complete high school and the SYA program, as well as complete one level of apprenticeship or one year of post-secondary training in a designated skilled trade.

Davies receives CDA volunteer award

Clint Davies of Estevan has been acknowledged as one of the 30 recipients of the Volunteer of the Year Awards for the Canadian Diabetes Association. The award was received at the annual awards ceremony, which honours individuals who have gone above and beyond in supporting the work of the Canadian Diabetes Asso-

ciation. “The Canadian Diabetes Association is proud to recognize the achievements of its volunteers. Clint is an exceptional volunteer committed to the association in leading the fight against diabetes,” said Warren Wagner, regional director for the association. “As a person living with Type 1 diabetes, we value the ef-

forts Clint makes to raise awareness and funds in his community of Estevan.” Davies has been a volunteer with the Canadian Diabetes Association for 25 years, serving at the local, regional and national level. In his regional role, he served as regional chairman for South Saskatchewan and is also an active member and contributor on the

Clint Davies association’s Saskatchewan

Advocacy Committee. “The association could not meet its mandate without the outstanding help and support it continues to receive from our volunteers. This year’s awards nominees and recipients have all truly helped to make a difference in the lives of the more than 85,000 people in Saskatchewan living with diabetes,”

said Wagner. Davies received his volunteer award from Maureen Kotopski, a board member of the Canadian Diabetes Association. Across Canada, the Diabetes Association calls on over 20,000 volunteers annually to help those striken to achieve their highest quality of life and to break ground in seeking a cure.

RCMP looking into two area incidents In early July a camper trailer that was parked at the Diamond M Ranch, located just off Highway 39 approximately two kilometers northwest of Estevan, was

vandalized by several persons who arrived in a dark coloured pickup truck. An access cover panel was also taken before the suspects were scared off by

the property owners, said Estevan RCMP officers who have opened up an investigation into the incident. The Estevan detachment also said they are con-

tinuing their investigation into a theft that occurred sometime between the evening hours of June 25 and early morning of June 26. A significant volume of

diesel fuel was stolen from a spray couple that was parked at a nearby farm location NW-27-4-9 W2. Anyone with information regarding either of these

two events is asked to report what they know through the anonymous CrimeStoppers phone line at 1-800-2228477 or contact the local detachment at 306-637-4400.

Turnbull conquers mod tour Consistency key as Estevan driver wins tour by 14 points He has long been one of the best drivers at Estevan Motor Speedway, but last week Aaron Turnbull proved once and for all that he can run with anyone. Turnbull’s mod racing career rose to new heights Thursday, as he won the Dakota Classic Modified Tour for the first time. “It’s kinda unbelievable. The guys that have won it are pretty elite drivers. Some of the best guys in the country have won it, and I’ve never really considered myself one of those guys. It’s pretty crazy,” he said. Turnbull’s secondplace finish at Dacotah Speedway in Mandan on Thursday sealed the tour win. He finished the annual six-night event with 220 points, putting him 14 ahead of Minot’s Allen Kent, and 25 ahead of Mandan drivers Jeremy Keller and Shawn Strand. Keller won Thursday’s race, and although Turnbull wanted to win that feature, he had to remind himself of the big picture: the tour championship. “(My goal was) just to keep the car in one piece and make sure that I finished, first and foremost, but I was still doing everything I could to try and win the race,” he said. “My car was working really good. It was phenomenal. I wish the race would’ve been a little bit longer and I might’ve been able to reel in Keller. The longer, we went, the better my car was.” Turnbull began the

He followed that up with a 14th-place showing in Minot the next night, and that would be the only time he placed outside the top five. “(Consistency) is very important. That one night that I finished 14th, most guys had one or two nights like that or even worse. I stayed pretty consistent the whole week. The car was working really good. (There were) even a couple of nights I started at the back of my heat race, and I was still able to get myself far enough ahead in the B-

main,” Turnbull said. Fittingly, Turnbull’s luck began to turn on the third night of the tour, at his home track. He led that race from start to finish, earning a valuable 40 points. But Kent, the tour leader at the time, finished second, and still sat nine points ahead of Turnbull. But it took only one night to make up that deficit and then some. Turnbull won again on July 9 in Williston, and Kent finished 14th, allowing Turnbull to take the tour lead by four points. “That was pretty excit-

ing. I was just trying to be patient at the start of that race, and I dropped back a couple of spots early on. I found a good line, and my car seemed to be working a little bit better than everybody else’s,” he said of the Williston feature. “Jeff Taylor led it for a while. I’m not sure if I would’ve gotten around him or not. It would’ve been interesting to finish that one out, but he ended up having trouble in the rear end of his car. “I had good luck all week and a fast car.” Turnbull drove his

way to another fourth-place finish in Dickinson on July 10, while Kent ended up in 10th, giving the Estevan driver a nearly insurmountable lead heading into the final night in Mandan. Although it’s a rare feat for a Canadian to win the tour, Turnbull has to battle his father Ed for bragging rights. “My dad has won it before. He’s got the trophy at home. Other than that, I’m sure we’re the only Canadians to do it.” Turnbull has come close before, and he said it took a lot of factors to go

the right way in order to finally break through. “It’s just trying to put the whole thing together. Last year I thought I would have a good chance at winning it, but I just wasn’t consistent enough. I had a motor failure the first night in Minot, and I pulled off the track the second night to save the car, because the track was so rough. That pretty much took me out of the points. Once you have a real bad night like that, it’s hard to get back into it.” Other local drivers who raced all or part of the mod circuit were Ed Turnbull (19th), Les McLenehan (27th), Kyle Scholpp (36th), Kody Scholpp (54th), Tyson Turnbull (56th), Jim Harris (64th), Richie Mann (78th), Riley Emmel (85th), Derrick Lisafeld (87th), Ryan Harris (95th), Alyssa Harris (103rd), Stu Veroba (104th) and Gregg Feuring (105th). On the stock car portion of the tour, Elijah Zevenbergen of Ocheyedan, Iowa, captured the overall title after winning five of the six races. Estevan was the only night he didn’t win, placing fifth at EMS. He finished 10 points clear of Randy Brands (Boyden, Iowa) and 17 ahead of Nathan Burke (Minot). Austin Daae was the top local finisher in seventh, followed by Geoff Mann (22nd), Rocky Alexander (32nd), Gregg Mann (34th), Alvin Dube (39th), J.J. Barnstable (51st) and Dustin Byler (52nd).

Impact lose to Heat in senior league final Although it meant losing out on a home game, the Estevan Harris Oilfield Impact can say they made the league final in their first season. The senior lacrosse club had been scheduled to host the Saskatoon Brewers in the Prairie Gold Lacrosse League semis on Saturday at the Icon Centre, but the Brewers forfeited the game because they didn’t have enough players. That meant the Impact moved on to play the Regina Heat in the league final on Sunday, losing 19-2. The Impact finished the regular season with a 2-6 record after the Brewers forfeited the last two games of the season, in Estevan, also due to a shortage of players. Along with being credited with two wins, the Impact were compensated for the loss of the home games by getting to host the semifinal game on Saturday, which never happened. The Heat (8-0) went undefeated in the regular 2003 Mack Place

season, and that showed in the final against a first-year Impact squad comprised of many players who had never played lacrosse before. Colin Fogarty and Ryan Curzon scored the goals for the Impact. Cody Hagman was in goal for Estevan in the first period, and Blaine Byers turned in a strong showing between the pipes for the second and third. The Heat took a 9-0 lead after the first period, with all of the goals coming in an 11-minute span. Kyle Bellegay and Dallan Larson scored twice each in the frame, with Landon Gryschuk, Keenan Cummings, Jeff Hoffman, Sean Peberdy and Justin Hoffman adding singles for the Heat. Regina extended its lead to 11-0 early in the second period when the Impact got on the board, thanks to a goal by Fogarty less than four minutes in. Curzon assisted on the marker. 493 Maple Bay

Harris gets coaching at Sharks’ camp After attending his second NHL development camp in as many years, Estevan’s Brant Harris is preparing for his senior year with the Connecticut Huskies. Harris was one of 44 players who took part in the San Jose Sharks’ development camp last week, running from Monday to Friday. The 22-year-old forward had attended the Washington Capitals’ development camp last summer, and he said that experience

helped him be “a lot more comfortable” entering the Sharks’ camp. “I think it went pretty well. It was a little different of a camp than what was in Washington,” said Harris, noting that he met Sharks head coach Todd McLellan and some players. “I got to learn some things and see where I’m at compared to other guys. “They seemed to break down the game and really focus on developing individual skills. We had one scrimmage on Thursday, but

other than that, we were on the ice every day, worked out every day and worked on things that are important to get to the next level. It was good hearing from these people about what to focus on.” Skating has always been a strong point of Harris’ game, and the Sharks noticed that. “There are a few things they point out. Skating’s obviously pretty important to be able to go on to the next level. It was something they emphasized. They like

my speed, but it’s something that has to keep improving, (as well as) my balance on skates.” Harris is coming off a junior year at UConn that started off slow, but gained steam as it went on. In his first year as Huskies captain, Harris posted 15 goals and 31 points in 37 games, similar totals to his sophomore year, in which he had 18 goals and 33 points. “I thought it was a very successful year, personally. It started off very rough points-wise, but I was still

Brant Harris playing better hockey compared to my sophomore year. After Christmas I started to get more points, things started to open up and I went to the net,” said Harris. “I’m playing better hockey and improving every year.”

Although he has spent the last little while focusing on the San Jose camp, that will shift now for Harris, as he prepares for his final season of college hockey. “I don’t know if I want to be thinking about (a possible pro contract) too much going into the year and if the year doesn’t go as planned, have that hanging over my head. That’s what the early part of the summer is for, talking to teams and setting up camps, and now it’s about (getting ready for the season),” he said. Harris spent his SJHL career with the Estevan Bruins and Melfort Mustangs, recording 104 points in 147 games over three seasons of junior hockey.

Twins post 2-3 record during busy week

It was a hectic week for the Southeast Legacy Twins, as the midget AAA baseball club played five games and had another postponed. After going 2-3 in last week’s games, the Twins remain slightly under .500, with a record of 11-13. That puts them in sixth place in the nine-team Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League. The Twins wrapped up the week with a doubleheader in Moose Jaw against the Devons (11-18). They won the first game 6-1 but lost a tight 13-12 decision in the second one. On Saturday, the Twins hosted the last-place Saskatoon Cubs (5-24) for a scheduled doubleheader at Lynn Prime Park, but after a 4-2 Twins victory in the opener, the second game was postponed due to the storm that swept southeast Saskatchewan that afternoon. Earlier in the week, the Twins lost 2-1 to the Regina Wolfpack in the provincial capital on Thursday, and fell 3-2 to the Regina Athletics at home on July 9. In Sunday’s 6-1 win over the Devons, the Twins plated three runs in the fourth inning and two more in the

fifth en route to the blowout win. After surrendering one run in the first inning on a fielder’s choice by Dylan Pisio, the Twins got three of their own when Jolan Lingelbach, Garret Fitzpatrick and John Gaab all scored on errors in the fourth. One inning later, errors were again the benefactor, as the Twins added two more runs to their lead. Fitzpatrick singled in Lingelbach for another run in the seventh inning. Lucas Lafrentz was the Twins’ top batter, hitting 3-for-4 with a run scored, while Fitzpatrick went 2-for4 with a run batted in and a run scored. Austin Orsted threw a complete game two-hitter for the Twins, striking out five batters and walking one. The second game of the doubleheader needed two extra innings to decide. With the score tied 12-12 in the bottom of the ninth, Fitzpatrick issued a walk and then hit two batters, setting the stage for Pisio to drive in the winning run on a single. Both teams piled up runs early and often, racking up a game-high four apiece in the

Orsted batted 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs, and Lingelbach hit 2-for5 with two RBI. Jonathon MacFarlane (two) and Logan Hertes (two) also drove in runs for the Twins. Moose Jaw’s top hitter was Kagan Meier, who hit 2-for-5 with four RBI. On the mound, it was a rough start for Gaab, who allowed eight runs (all earned) on nine hits, one strikeout and one walk in four innings of work for the Twins. Colton Gingras threw three innings

in relief, surrendering four runs, four hits and four walks, along with two strikeouts. Fitzpatrick finished the game for the Twins, allowing the one run and one hit, along with a walk, in an inning and two-thirds. Four pitchers saw action for the Devons, with Jordan McInnis earning the win after throwing two innings of one-hit, shutout ball to close out the game. Against the Cubs on Saturday, the Twins quietly built an early lead, plating all four runs in the first

three innings. Lingelbach hit a double in the first inning to bring home Lafrentz and get the Twins on the board. In the second, MacFarlane cashed in Jimmy Giroux on a sac fly and Ketter Hoium came home on a wild pitch. In the third, Saskat o o n ’s D r e w G a b r u c h scored Dalton Wells on a single, but Gaab came home on an error in the bottom of the inning to extend the Twins’ lead to 4-1. The Cubs closed out the scoring in the sixth inning, with Nick Anderson hitting a single to score Jordan Ehman. Twins starter Brandon Hutt was one out away from a complete game, scattering five hits while allowing two runs, two walks and striking out six. Gingras came in to get the final out, allowing one hit first. On Thursday against the Wolfpack, the Twins scored their lone run in the first inning and couldn’t get much going after that. The run came when Fitzpatrick got on base with a single to drive in Lafrentz. Regina tied the game in the second inning when

Tyson Blaschke scored on a single by Jordon Dezotell. The Wolfpack then took the lead for good in the fifth, when Tanner Ring hit a single with the bases loaded to drive in Jeremy Sylvester. Fitzpatrick accounted for two of the Twins’ four hits on the day, batting 2-for-3 with an RBI. Carson Bogdan starred for the Wolfpack with a 3-for-3 day. Wolfpack starter Tanner Ring threw a complete game, allowing one run on four hits, three walks and two strikeouts. Gaab went four innings for the Twins, allowing two runs on four hits, a strikeout and a walk. Hutt came in to take care of the last two innings, shutting out the Wolfpack while surrendering three hits on a walk and a strikeout. The Twins are slated to visit the Regina Mets tonight. They will be busy at home this weekend, hosting the Saskatoon Diamondbacks for a doubleheader on Saturday (1 and 3 p.m.), and the Saskatoon Giants for another one on Sunday (2 and 4 p.m.).

Handley named PGLL most valuable player That was enough to put him 14 points ahead of the next two scorers, teammate Dylan Smith and Logan McMurtry of the Regina Rifles, both of whom had 58. Smith, meanwhile, led the league in goals with 37. Both Big Dogs stars were named to the PGLL’s first all-star team on Friday. Other players named to the team were McMurtry, Tristan Frei (Regina Rifles), Jack Oakanee (Saskatoon Smash), Konnor Siemens (Saskatoon Steelers) and goalie Louden Choptuik (Yorkton Bulldogs). The second all-star

Estevan Big Dogs star Rhett Handley capped off a dominant season in the Prairie Gold Lacrosse League with a prestigious honour last week. Handley was named most valuble player for the PGLL’s junior division on Friday, when the league announced its all-star teams. Although he was a premier threat and a top-five scorer in 2012, Handley took his game to a new level this season, leading the PGLL in scoring by a significant margin. In 10 games, Handley racked up 72 points, including 25 goals and 47 assists.

team is comprised of Taylor Dobrescu (Moose Jaw Mustangs), Taylor Frei (Rifles), Cody Schwan (Smash), Brandan Murphy (Smash), Tyler Tilford (Prince Albert Predators) and goalie Ryan Wahobin (Saskatoon Smash). Meanwhile, Kelsy Omland of the Estevan Impact was named to the senior division’s first all-star team. Omland finished eighth in PGLL scoring with eight goals and 15 points in five games. Other players named to the team are Dallan Larson, the league’s regular season MVP (Regina Heat), Kyle

Bellegay (Heat), Landon Gryschuk (Heat), Ryan

Potie (Saskatoon Brewers), Curtis Ptolemy (Brewers)

and goalie Jim Magnaye (Heat).

Wolves earn second win The Estevan Tower Wolves’ good fortunes against the Oxbow Chiefs this season continued on Thursday. For the second time in as many outings against the Chiefs, the Wolves won a tight, high-scoring game, defeating Oxbow 10-9 at Lynn Prime Park. The Wolves had previously edged the Chiefs 12-10 in Oxbow on June 9 for their first win. Estevan was scheduled to host the Carnduff Astros on Sunday afternoon, but the game was rained out due to Saturday’s storm. The Tower Wolves (2-7) sat in eighth place in the Saskota Baseball League enter-

ing last night’s scheduled regular season finale against the Kenosee Cubs in Estevan. Two league games did go ahead on Sunday, with Kenosee beating up on the Wawota Pats 14-2 and the Carlyle Cardinals hammering Oxbow 11-2. On Thursday, Kenosee handed the firstplace Cardinals their first loss of the year, 6-2, and Wawota beat the Arcola Threshers 4-1. Carlyle (11-1-1) was atop the league standings entering last night, followed by Kenosee (9-2-1), Carnduff (6-2), Lampman (7-5), Oxbow (5-8), Wawota (4-7-1), Arcola (3-7-2), Estevan and Redvers (1-9-1)

Estevan Mercury

Former Estevan resident buys Coyotes Dutton part of new ownership group for Phoenix At long last, the legal saga of the Phoenix Coyotes appears to be over, in small part due to a former Estevan resident. Bill Dutton is one of 10 partners in Renaissance Sports and Entertainment, a Calgary-based group that signed a new 15-year, $225-million lease for the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Az., earlier this month. Glendale City Council voted 4-3 in favour of signing the lease on July 2, paving the way for RSE to purchase the Coyotes. The transfer of ownership from the NHL, which has owned the club for the last four

Former Estevan resident Bill Dutton, seen here with Phoenix Coyotes players Shane Doan and Keith Yandle, recently became a part-owner of the NHL club. years while seeking a buyer, still needs to be approved by the league’s board of governors.

Dutton, who now lives in Qualicum Beach, B.C., said he had previous connections to some of the

new owners through the oil industry in Calgary. “I knew several of the guys that were doing it. (Prospective buyer Greg) Jamison’s deal fell through last year. We picked it up and ran with it a little bit. There’s 10 of us. I’ve done business with some of them,” said Dutton, a former executive with Upton Resources. “We lived down there in the wintertime. We’d meet at the games, have a beer and talk about it. We thought it might be a good idea.” Dutton said the 10 partners all have approximately

equal stakes in the Coyotes. The decision to join RSE was borne out of the Virden native’s lifelong passion. “My family was involved in hockey in the ‘30s and ‘40s. I’ve followed it pretty closely all my life. I’ve had nephews who have played pro hockey, and good friends that have played pro hockey and coached.” During his 31 years in Estevan, spanning from 1958-89, Dutton was heavily involved with the Estevan Bruins. “I was president, manager, scout, I sharpened skates, I drove the bus,

whatever had to be done,” he recalled. As for the Coyotes, whose future has been up in the air in courtrooms since 2009, Dutton said RSE wanted a stable situation. “The last six months, it’s been an ordeal. One day it was OK, the next day one of the councillors would change his mind. “It was either a clean bill of health when we bought them, or we wouldn’t. We wanted them to stay in Phoenix. It’s a beautiful facility. Now that the TV rights are all equalized among the teams, I think it should work out.”

Golden Eels win Assiniboia swim meet Pick wins bronze The Estevan Golden Eels had a busy weekend, winning a meet in Assiniboia on Saturday and taking second in another in Swift Current on Sunday. In Assiniboia, the Eels amassed a total of 407 points, easily eclipsing secondplace Regina (323 points) and third-place Gravelbourg (180 points). The Golden Eels won 15 overall age group medals, with three of those being gold. Hannah Mantei continued her dominance in the pool, winning the overall gold for the 9-10 girls age category. Other gold medal winners for their age groups were Josh Wilson (9-10 boys) and Taylor Fornwald (15-17 boys). The Eels swept the podium in the 9-10 girls category, with Alia Burlock winning

The silver medal winners included Escalus Burlock (7-8 boys), Emily Marshall (11-12 girls), Kersey Reich (11-12 boys), Racquelle Gibbons (13-14 girls) and Sam Beahm (1517 boys). Swimmers earning bronze medals for their age

group were Denver Sehn (7-8 boys), Payten Wilson (11-12 girls), Logan Marshall (11-12 boys), Jillian Fornwald (13-14 girls) and Abbie Reich (15-17 girls). In Swift Current, meanwhile, the Eels totalled 376 points for their efforts, putting them behind only the host club, which had 478 points. Regina finished third

with 314. Estevan earned seven age group medals, two of them being gold. Those came from Mantei and Josh Wilson. Other medal winners were Jack Tuttle (silver, 1517 boys), Burlock (bronze), DeLeeuw (bronze), Payten Wilson (bronze) and Lanelle Bilokraly (bronze, 13-14 girls). The Golden Eels are hosting the south semifinal meet on Saturday at the R.M. of Estevan Aquatic Centre.

Estevan running back Levi Pick was a member of the South Saskatchewan team that earned a bronze medal at the under-16 Red River Cup in Winnipeg on Saturday. The squad needed to win two games in a bronze medal round-robin setup to take the hardware. They edged North Saskatchewan 10-7, then defeated Winnipeg East 27-13 to take the medal. South Saskatchewan began the tournament on July 6 with a 23-16 win over Winnipeg East. They followed that up with a 14-0 win over the Lower Mainland team, which ended up winning the tournament, on Wednesday. Pick, a member of the Estevan bantam Steelers, picked up 17 yards on four carries in the two roundrobin games. Statistics for the playoff games were not available at press time.

Turnbull cements status among elite

When a driver as good as Aaron Turnbull achieves something he’s never done before, you know it was quite an accomplishment. Winning the Dakota Classic Modified Tour was just that. Although the tour includes a stop in Estevan every year and a number of local drivers compete each year, it is very much a circuit dominated by Americans. Although finding a complete list of past champions proved impossible (for an event as big as the

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out tour, they really should get on that), it’s believed that Turnbull’s father, Ed, is the only previous Canadian to win it. Ed taught both his sons how to race, and did it well. It’s hard to imagine

something more special for a racing father and son to share. Aaron has come close before. He was sixth on the tour last year, and tied for fourth in 2011. A slow start was what

cost him last year, and even this time around, he didn’t truly hit his stride until about halfway through. Turnbull was coming off an underwhelming 14th-place finish in Minot when the tour swung up to Estevan on July 8. It was a crucial stop for him if he was going to stay in contention, and he made a big statement in his hometown, starting on the front row and never giving up the lead. But he still had work to do, sitting nine points behind tour leader Allen

Kent at that point. Following the Estevan win, he said he wasn’t sure if he would be able to close the gap. As it turned out, it only took one night. Turnbull won again in Williston, and perhaps more importantly for him, Kent had a rough night of his own, finishing 14th. Suddenly Turnbull had a four-point lead atop the standings. He extended his lead further with a fourth-place finish in Dickinson on Wednesday, and when the

program began in Mandan the next night, Turnbull already had the title all but wrapped up, with a 10-point lead. American drivers often speak highly of Turnbull when they race at Estevan Motor Speedway, and now that he’s a tour champion, he’ll have an even bigger target on his back. Contact Josh Lewis at 306-634-2654 or sports@ estevanmercury.ca. So, was anyone else hunkered down in their bathtub on Monday?

It’s show-me time for Riders after hot start It’s time for reflection. Just like exactly one year ago at this time, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have opened the CFL season with a 3-0 record and understandably, the province is going nuts. I think most fans will admit to their mind drifting, for at least a minute, to imagine where the inevitable Grey Cup parade will begin, and end. However, far fewer people have stopped to think about what also happened last year at this time. As you recall, the bottom fell completely out and the team suffered through a painful five-game losing streak on its way to a 5-10 record after that torrid start. How do we know if won’t happen again? We don’t.

Rod Pedersen Rider Insider But head coach Corey Chamblin admits that things are far different from 12 months ago. He’s done a lot of self-study, not only on his team, but of himself as well. Chamblin won’t reveal all of what he learned, but he’s admitted to pulling his horns in somewhat and not making those brash, bold guarantees which were front-page news and led off SportsCentre weekly. “Last year it was a young team and I had to

Public Notice

Discretionary Use Development Permit Application Rural Municipality of Estevan No.5 The Council of the Rural Municipality of Estevan No.5, pursuant to Section 55(2) of The Planning and Development Act, 2007, hereby gives notice of its intention to consider the Development Permit application of AA Development Inc. for: 1) the discretionary principal use of a 260 room work camp.

prized quarterback Darian Durant. He’s been as good as anybody, but left Thursday’s 39-28 win in Toronto in the third quarter. “I do not have an update,” Chamblin said upon the team’s return to Regina. “I haven’t spoken to (the medical staff). I just know it’s an ankle injury and we’ll assess it in the next couple of days.” Over the weekend Durant went for x-rays, which turned up negative, and Darian tweeted that he’ll be rehabbing the injury for this week’s game, Sunday at home to Hamilton (5:00 pm kickoff on TSN and CKRM). “Definitely you worry about it,” Chamblin admitted. “But at the same time, if he’s not able to go, (back-up) Drew Willy’s up

bad.

That’s a change from last year, where the 3-0 start, with a rookie coach and a roster which had been totally overhauled, was truly jaw-dropping. Even the team surprised itself, playing error-free football. They were nearly perfect. This is different. Much was expected of the Roughriders going into the season and they have not disappointed. I mentioned in training camp that this is a veritable all-star team and they’ve looked very much the part, so far. But I’ve also mentioned that adversity is hiding in the shadows, ready to pop out without warning.  It may have reared its head already with last week’s ankle injury to

and that also maybe gives Tino Sunseri some time in there as a back-up. We just have to move on and hopefully it’s not a more-than-acouple-of-days thing.” And let’s remember one more thing; these season-opening win streaks are a lot of fun to talk about and sell a lot of tickets, but they don’t amount to a hill of beans come November. The 2008 Riders went 6-0 to start the season under Ken Miller, their best start since 1928, but Miller’s bunch didn’t even get out of the Western semifinal in their own stadium. Slow and steady wins the race. But they sure look real good right now. For daily Rider news, follow Rod on Twitter at @ sportscage.

Estevan golfer plays with DeLaet in Saskatoon Local golfer Pat Murphy enjoyed a unique experience on Thursday. Murphy was one of four people who played a round with Weyburn PGA professional Graham DeLaet during a charity golf tournament at The Willows Golf and Country Club in Saskatoon. “It was great,” Murphy said. “All of us actually broke 80.” The group included three other golfers from Saskatoon, including a member of the Saskatchewan junior team. “I think Graham was about a 64. I shot a 75. Graham was a lot of fun to play with. He mingled with everybody all the time, it’s not like he was standoffish or anything. I’ve known him since he was a teenager.” Murphy has previous ties to the DeLaet family, having known Graham’s father, Norm, for about 40 years. Still, he said it was “actually quite a thrill” to play with DeLaet, who is currently ranked 67th in

the World Golf Rankings and recently found out he made it into this week’s British Open at Muirfield in Scotland. “I just went and played my game. It doesn’t bother me one way or the other. I wasn’t out to impress anybody. No one was there to watch me. I’m pretty happy with how I played,” Murphy said. Ward Tuttle of RBC sponsored Murphy’s participation, as it cost $5,000 to play with DeLaet. “I was a lead sponsor for the tournament. Through that, I got the chance to play with Graham, but knowing how much I get out on the course, it’s not enough, so I’d be better off to let someone better do it,” said Tuttle. The day began with DeLaet hosting a golf clinic, with a question-andanswer session. After the tournament, dinner and a charity auction took place. Proceeds raised will benefit junior golf and some of DeLaet’s personal charities.

Mosquito team wins B side in Melville The Estevan KPC Sluggers mosquito AA baseball team competed in a tournament in Melville on the weekend, winning the B final. The Sluggers routed the Martensville Mustangs 13-3 in the final to capture the B side of the event. Estevan posted a 1-2 record in the roundrobin to reach the semis. The tournament began for the Sluggers with a 15-5 loss to the Dalmeny Diamond-

backs. However, the team recovered in their second game, defeating the White City Broncos 11-1. In their last round-robin game, the Sluggers lost 15-1 to the Muenster Red Sox. That sent them to the semifinals, where they played another lopsided game, doubling up White City 20-10 in their second meeting. The Sluggers will play at provincials this weekend in Martensville.

Kaitlen Story of Regina provided the party

essentials. A number of North Portal friends attended Marion Milne’s 90th birthday party on Saturday, July 13 at the small Legion Hall in Estevan. Her family was all present for the event. Malcolm and Carol of Abu Dhabi, Dale Milne of North Portal and nieces and nephews enjoyed a delicious lunch with cake and coffee. Doug and Cheryl Fair of Camrose, Alta were visiting their daughter Chelsea and husband and

two sons for a week. Rev. Brenna Nickel returned from holidays on the east coast. She spent one week in New Jersey, with her parents, also in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee where she celebrated her 29th birthday with family. Jae and Betty Baniulis and Wendell, Gene and Margaret Baniulis, Kyle, Logan and his three children drove to Fishing Lake on June 21st to visit Lorie and Bonnie for the weekend.

• Born to Cort and Staci Barker (née Suchan) on June 2, 2013, a daughter, Aubrey Eva Barker. Proud grandparents are Gred and Wendy Suchan and Curtis and Debby Barker.

By Peggy Bolton Trinity Tower Correspondent Frieda Seeman had a wonderful birthday weekend with her two sons. Dallas came from Sylvan Lake on his Harley to Damyen’s house in Lampman. On Frieda’s birthday, the boys took her fishing at the Alameda Dam and then prepared a tasty birthday fish fry. Frieda was happy to have her sister Betty Deshors from Radville visiting her for a few days. Some of our residents have really enjoyed the Souris Valley presentations. Our flowers on the patio are beautiful. Thanks to our resident gardeners Debby, Judy and Doug Hood for keeping them watered. Visiting the Boltons recently was their granddaughter Tina Steffenson from Moose Jaw, Marie and Dawn Mahan from Oxbow, and Elaine Brock from Weyburn. I found this article in Senior Living and felt it was worth publishing as a reminder to us to keep cool on these hot, humid days. Top Ten Tips on Keeping Seniors Safe in Summer Heat Drink plenty of liquids — eight or more eight-ounce glasses per day and/or fruit juices everyday to stay hydrated.

Avoid caffeinated and alcoholic beverages. Dress appropriately. Wear loose-fitting clothes in natural fabrics like cotton, and dress in light colours that will reflect the sun and heat instead of darker colours that will attract them. When outdoors, protect your skin from damage by wearing hats, sunglasses, and a sunscreen of 30 SPF or more. Stay indoors during extreme heat. If you do not have air conditioning in your apartment, go somewhere that does. A movie theatre, the mall, a friend’s or relative’s home or a community senior centre are all good options. If you need to get out of the house and don’t drive a car, call a taxi, a friend or transportation service. Do not wait outside for the bus in extreme heat. If you are absolutely unable to leave the house and do not have air conditioning, take a cool bath or shower to lower your body temperature on extremely hot days. Temperatures inside the home should not exceed 85 degrees Fahrenheit for prolonged periods of time. Know the signs of heat stroke (e.g. flushed face, high body temperature, headache, nausea, rapid pulse, dizziness and confusion) and take immediate action if you feel them coming on.

Thank You

On behalf of the Jacklin Family, a special thanks to all the people who provided their support and condolences during this time, as we mourn the loss of our dear wife and mom. We would like to extend our appreciation to Hall Funeral Services for their guidance and support, thanks so much Allan and to Dustin for his singing, at prayers and at the church; Stacy, Sandra and the St John the Baptist Parish Choir, for the most beautiful songs; Rev. Juanito Vargas, the celebrant of the Funeral Mass for our mom; Doug Third for officiating the Prayer Service; the CWL Ladies for their prayers, before and after her passing, and for providing the lunch after the funeral; and for all of those that brought food, flowers and comfort to the house, prayers and church. It was all so appreciated and heart felt. Helen Wallewein 1937 - 2013 On Saturday, July 6, 2013, Helen Irene Wallewein passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Estevan. Mom was born on September 3, 1937, near Weyburn, Sask. She was the seventh child in a family of nine. During that era, there was little money to buy things, and Mom remembers helping her own mother to sew clothes, preserve vegetables, and generally make from scratch all of the basic needs required. In 1956, after graduating from high school, she began working at the Saskatchewan Hospital becoming a fully certified Psychiatric nurse. Helen married Gilbert Wallewein, on April 27, 1963, and this spring they celebrated 50 years of marriage. They lived in a tiny trailer in Weyburn until 1966, when they moved to our family farm northwest of Benson. The first years of farming were difficult, but Mom and Dad persevered and good years followed. Mom loved gardening and made sure to plant enough produce to feed our family, relatives, and many of our neighbours. The cukes were used for her legendary garlic dill pickles. Mom enjoyed raising chickens, and we always had fresh eggs for sale. Mom absolutely loved to dance, so family weddings, and New Years parties were some of her favorite occasions. A tribute to Ma would never be complete without mentioning her `meals on wheels to the field`. During seeding and harvest, she would deliver a hot meal to everyone out in the field. As we kids grew, Mom worked part-time at the New Hope Pioneer Lodge in Stoughton, and then full-time as a psychiatric nurse back at Souris Valley Extended Care in Weyburn. She had a special talent for working with the most vulnerable people in our world – those suffering from mental illness. Mom made their world a better place by always treating her patients with kindness and dignity. Her strong faith led her to volunteer countless hours, both in the community of Benson and at Sacred Heart Church. She loved having everyone gather at the farm for Sunday supper, and she always made time to sit down and play cards. The grandkids all played “Steal the Pack”, a game Grandma invented. Grandma had the best stocked pantry and no grandchild EVER left the farm without some candies for the ride home. She retired from nursing in 2002, and Mom and Dad moved to Estevan just a few years ago. In 2011, the Walleweins were honoured to be selected as the Farm Family of the Year, and Mom’s contributions were instrumental in making our farming operation the success that it remains today. Mom’s final days were spent living in Hillview Manor, and we are so very thankful to Eunice Massett and the rest of the staff at Hillview for the wonderful care she received while there. Her funeral mass was held on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church with Father Peter Nijssen as the celebrant. Interment followed at Souris Valley Memorial Gardens. Though it is hard not to have a heavy heart in times like these, Mom was a woman of devout faith, and we know she is dancing at Heaven’s Gates. She is survived by Gilbert, her husband of fifty years; her children, Ken (Julie-Anne) Riley and Reagan of Estevan; Kevin (Brenda) Alyssa, Kelsey, Lucas, and Olivia of Estevan; Loretta Kot (Blaise) Kyle, Austin, Madison, and Jada of Weyburn; Lynn Matthies (Mark) Calvin, Logan, Michaella of Estevan; Debbie Hoffort (Steven) Brie and Matthew of Calgary; and Denise Morstad (Darryl) Kate, Jayne, John of Grand Coulee; two brothers, Hilarion Pohl (Beth) and Vernon Pohl (Faye) both of Weyburn.

Photo radar now in use for construction zones

It’s one photo you don’t want to be in, and the provincial government doesn’t want to see you in. Starting Monday, photo radar was put in place in random highway work zones throughout the province, taking photos of vehicle license plates of drivers observed exceeding the speed limit of 60 km/hr. “Our only goal here is to motivate drivers to obey the law, which will ultimately make the work zone safer and potentially save the life of a worker or motorist,” Prince Albert-

Carlton MLA and Chair of the Provincial Traffic Safety Committee Darryl Hickie said on behalf of Minister responsible for Highways and Infrastructure Don McMorris. “If we don’t collect one dime of revenue from photo enforcement, that’s a good thing - it means people are doing what they’re supposed to.” Photo radar will be set up in random highway work zones throughout the province with locations changing periodically and as needed. This means photo enforcement could be set up in

any work zone at any time. Where the automated speed equipment is present, photos will be taken of the license plates of vehicles driving faster than 60 km/hr. Tickets will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. Previously, fines for speeding in the work zone started at $140 and increased by $2 to $4 for every km/h over the speed limit. Now, the base fine is $210 and will increase by $3-$6 per km/h over the speed limit. Also included in the fine is a victim’s surcharge which increases in severity by speed.

For a driver who speeds through a work zone at just 70 km/h, this would result in a total fine of $300. At 100 km/h, this would result in a total fine of $530. ACS Public Sector Solutions, a Xerox company, was selected to provide photo enforcement through a competitive tender process and will be paid on a fee for service basis – not based on the number of tickets issued. The RCMP will verify and determine if there is enough evidence to issue a ticket in each instance. Since the death of flag

person Ashley Richards in August 2012, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, Ministry of Justice, Saskatchewan Government Insurance, RCMP, Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association and other partners have been working together to improve safety in work zones. Measures that have been taken to clear up confusion and keep workers and drivers safe in work zones are based on the “three E’s” of traffic safety — education, engineering and enforcement. In addition to

photo radar, they include new black and white speed signs that make it clear to the driver exactly when to slow down, heavier fines for drivers who are caught speeding, rumble strips and gates to alert the driver they are entering a work zone, and increased enforcement by both the RCMP and provincial Highway Traffic Officers.
