Sun Country’s $141 million budget expected to get the green light Theatre Season Back After Two Years

⇢ A10

The governing body of the Sun Country Health Region has approved a $141 million balanced budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year. The document still requires the approval of the Ministry of Health, but it is expected that the tightly knit budget, that contains a 2.6 per cent increase in revenues will get the nod of approval. The modest increase includes a target of improving access to primary health services and strengthened mental health and addictions services to reflect increased populations, said John Knoch, Sun Country’s vice-president of finance and corporate services. “All priorities will be carried out in a manner consistent with the Patient First approach

to care, while continuing our strategic work (hoishins) and adapting to a lean system of management,” Knoch said. “We are already starting to see a return on our investment in the lean system and will see more of it in the upcoming year.” In response to an inquiry from the Mercury as to who and how the monitoring is carried out with regards to the lean management and administration system, Knoch said “some areas have clean indicators where in other areas it’s difficult to estimate the initiatives throughout. When assessing, we use our own data but in some sections, such as the Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative, there is provincial data to

determine success, and that’s what we can use to develop strategies.” The costs associated with implementing lean initiatives are borne within each department, he said. He added that there are additional costs associated with training under the lean model and some are paid by the health region while others are met at the provincial level. “We are very careful with pulling frontline people off work details to take training in efficiencies,” said Knoch, since it would defeat the purpose of the program.

A committee has been formed to look at ways to help drivers feel safe on the road again. After seeing a spike in fatalities last year, an allparty traffic safety committee was struck by the legislature to improve traffic safety and reduce fatalities by examining factors such as impaired driving, distracted driving, excessive speed, intersection safety and wildlife collisions. The committee will also provide recommendations regarding education and

public awareness issues related to traffic safety. Sask. Party member Darryl Hickie is chairing the committee, while the NDP’s Danielle Chartier is acting as deputy chair. At the Estevan meeting on May 28 at the Days Inn Fireside Room, the Time to Twin committee made submissions to the provincial committee, as did Estevan resident Don Kindopp, who gave testimony on personal experience driving on the local highways, and Greg

indicated to us that they believe additional highway traffic enforcement through the RCMP would be important as a means to reduce overall fatalities. Presence, right? It’s a deterrence,” said Hickie. He said the policing division of the Ministry of Justice believes that immediate redeployment of officers, as well as hiring new officers committed just to traffic safety in the short term, is a quick step that can be taken.

City moving closer to recycling program

A new report has provided some clarity into how a curbside recycling program might work in Estevan. At the May 27 regular meeting of council, a report from city manager Jim Puffalt was included on the agenda. In his report Puffalt noted a complete inspection of the City was carried out to determine which areas are not suited for curbside collection. After the investigation, which the report indicated was carried out by a very mature summer student, it was determined that there are a handful of areas where curbside recycling was not feasible. It was noted that due to heavy traffic, the homes on Fourth Street, Albert Street, the 1200 and 1300 blocks of Sixth Street and the 1000, 1100, 1200 and 1300 blocks of Third Street would need to have back alley recycling. The report added there were also areas of Second Street A and First Street that would need to have back alley collection because it would be physically

in Estevan. It was evident at the meeting that most want recycling but do not want to see the bins placed curbside. However, the proposal submitted to the City by Regens did not include provisions for back alley recycling, a fact that leaves the City in somewhat of a bind. Ludwig said council isn’t prepared to scrap recycling all together and will likely have to move forward with a plan that might not be popular to some residents. “We will be moving ahead with recycling, it’s just a matter of setting the parameters of how we do that and settling the other issues.” Ludwig said the City’s current contract with Regens expires at the end of June and they would like to have most of the big issues settled soon with the intention of beginning the program in July. “We hope to work through the issues this summer and hopefully have most of them resolved by fall.”

Province asks for $2 million in cuts ⇠ A1 was not known at press time, financial statements from the 2011-12 fiscal year indicate that Sun Country released $17.7 million to the Estevan hospital, which would represent that facility’s main source of revenue for general operations at that time. Knoch said there are other priorities being targeted within the region and its 19 facilities, including additional programs for those with chronic disease, more emphasis on recruitment of rural family doctors along with improvement in infection control, more screenings for colorectal cancer and expansion of services to address autism. While the proposed budget has provided additional resources to maintain operating levels, there is also a push in Sun Country to reduce expenditures by about $2 million as outlined by the Ministry of Health. In essence, that would mean an increase in funding from the Ministry of about $2.8 million with the expectation of reducing expenditures by $2 million. Knoch said they will attack these cuts with more efficient delivery of supplies and lowered utility costs along with better management of absenteeism and reduced workplace injuries along with service changes in laboratories

with a history of low volumes. They have also targeted additional efficiencies in the affiliated facilities that include St. Joseph’s in Estevan plus two others in Carlyle and Radville. The cost savings are being implemented in areas that won’t affect patient care, Knoch said. Sun Country provides services to approximately 58,000 people in southeast Saskatchewan and employs 2,384 people, not including their affiliated facilities. Approximately 91 per cent of the revenue for Sun Country

comes from the provincial ministry while eight per cent is derived from patient fees. On the expenditure side, 69 per cent of the budgeted amount is spent on salaries and payments of benefits ($97.88 million) while $21.8 million goes to affiliated facilities, with the largest amount heading to St. Joseph’s Hospital, while $16.7 million is spent on supplies, pharmaceuticals and utility costs, and another $4 million is spent on remuneration to medical professionals.

Goal is to see zero fatalities ⇠ A1 “It seems to me that additional enforcement will be a recommendation coming forward, to be sure,” added Hickie. Marge Young, co-chair of the Time to Twin committee, urged the committee to recommend policies that would make Highways 39 and 6 from North Portal to Regina safer. She cited the elevation of heavy truck traffic as being the primary safety concern on that stretch of highway. She noted there is a lot of semi traffic because of the $12 billion in trade that goes through the North Portal border crossing each year. The federal government, she said, has also allocated $10 million to renovate the port of entry to allow more truck traffic. Between more traffic being encouraged out of the

port, and the new facility at Northgate that will add about 300 to 400 tanker trucks and about 75 grain trucks on the local highway system, she said the traffic flow will only get more dense. The Time to Twin committee’s goal is to inspire the twinning of Highway 39 and 6 from Estevan to Regina, but Hickie said his committee is not going to make recommendations for local solutions. Twinning highways are local issues, and he said, they are looking to pitch province-wide policies. “We can’t make a rec-

ommendation from a local perspective, one-offs I call them,” said Hickie. “However, what was very beneficial to hear from the committee today was that they also recognized there are projections for growth in the area. What the committee can recommend in this case is that we would recommend that the Ministry of Highways works closely again with groups like this Time to Twin to really do projected analysis as to traffic demands moving into the future. That’s the kind of thing we’ll be looking at.” He noted broader suggestions like that are what

the committee can make. Highway signage is one they can recommend, particularly if better signage could be utilized around intersections. After some meetings with stakeholders and members of the public, Hickie said the committee is open to all recommendations that enhance traffic safety in the province. All the recommendations of the previous traffic committee in the 1990s were enacted over time, so Hickie said action will come out of these public meetings. “Some of the recommendations will be immediate. Some quick legislative changes involving, possibly, handheld devices can be done quickly. Regulation changes are faster than act changes,” said Hickie. Other things may take longer, particularly if the committee recommends a study be completed that could identify more ways to reduce fatalities on the road. Hickie noted whatever recommendations they make or policies the government enacts, there is still an onus on drivers to take some responsibility behind the wheel to drive in a safe manner. “I want to see zero fatalities,” he said, “but we can’t legislate smart.��� The committee will be looking at all submissions from the public and presenting their shortlisted recommendations to the legislature later this year. The committee is accepting written recommendations until June 6. Those wishing to submit recommendations must e-mail them to committees@legassembly.sk.ca

Mercredi calls for open hearts, minds It was a meeting of the spiritual minds when dignitaries within the United Church of Canada visited the Energy City over the weekend. Estevan hosted the Saskatchewan Conference of the United Church of Canada’s annual meeting over the weekend, with events filling Spectra Place from May 30 to June 2. Estevan’s Don Kindopp was the local organizer and called it an affirming conference, meaning it was accepting of all colours, sexual orientations, marital statuses and anyone else who wished to participate. The conference included the retirement and ordination of ministers in the province. Ovide Mercredi, a lawyer and First Nations advocate, was the theme speaker at the event, presenting a two-part address to the conference on Friday and Saturday. The address was given on “Gathering Spirits, Building Relationships.” His speech was part history lesson, as he spoke about the damage that had been done to his ancestors’ spiritual beliefs. He noted his people were converted to Christianity when he was a young boy. “There was no reflection, not even an inkling of the peace pipe, the sweat lodge, the shake tent or the circle,” said Mercredi. “They had completely disappeared by the time I was born.” He said the role of spirituality is in uplifting people. As a child, he attended the Catholic Church, though his mother was an Anglican. He recalled that in that time, those two institutions were divided, with each side sug-

gesting their church would be more preferable to Jesus. He said, however, at that time lots of people went to church and were very devout. The churches were filled with standing room only. On holidays such as Christmas, he said people would attend multiple times a day, “filling the churches with prayer.” As many others have noted before, those numbers have diminished dramatically. “What is there to replace it? What replaces that spiritual component that sustains life?” asked Mercredi, who noted that is happening for a number of reasons. He is one of those who left the church. “I had an appreciation that my own people had their spirituality,” he said, regarding his decision to return to those roots. To find those beliefs, he went to an elder woman to ask about his ancestors’ spirituality. “Her response bewildered me. I couldn’t understand what it was, or why it was like that. She said, ‘That’s the way we were before. We’re not like that anymore.’” As he got older and had more experience around the country, he saw just how big of an impact Canadian society had on his people. “When the missionaries came west, they tried to convert First Nations people to Christianity and were not that successful. They were not successful because the First Nations people had their own spiritual beliefs, their beliefs were strong and powerful, and they had no reason to change,” said Mer-

Ovide Mercredi gave a two-day address to the attendees of the Saskatchewan Conference of the United Church of Canada’s annual meeting at Spectra Place over the weekend. credi. “So, the Christians lobbied Parliament. They went to the politicians in the House of Commons and they sought a law to forbid First Nations people from maintaining their spiritual beliefs, customs, traditions and ceremonies. This is an instance of religious bigotry in this country.” A law was passed in 1881, remaining on the books until 1926, but he noted it was practised until 1960. The law characterized Indian spirituality as “the worship of the devil and the heathen’s way of belief.” There was an idea at the time, he said, that Christian-

ity was right, and everyone else was wrong. “I couldn’t imagine how an entire race of people, like the Chinese people, could not be in heaven because they were not Christian,” said Mercredi, about struggles with his faith years ago. “I thought if that’s the case, I don’t want that god, who discriminates against humanity.” The elder he wished to speak to about Cree beliefs he said was born in the 1880s and would have been indoctrinated by the church and the government to abandon her ancestors’ customs. He called that the “impact of colonization.” He said reconciliation is about more than simply land and trees. “How do we understand each other, and how do we begin to accept the different paths to the creator’s road?” said Mercredi, noting reconciliation involves spirituality as much as it does anything else. He said Cree people

were encouraged to become Christians because it was easier. “I know both ways, and they’re both easy because it’s about belief. It’s not about the physical church or the mental exercises. It’s about the heart and how you feel,” said Mercredi. In some ways, Canada has made great strides when it comes to its relationship with First Nations people, but Mercredi said it will take open minds from everyone if current issues are expected to be solved. “People will not hear each other unless they open their hearts and their minds. The people will not reach a compromise or a consensus unless they find a common vision for what’s good for this country and what is good for First Nations,” he said. “What we need to do is find a path, a common path we can build together, so that the end result is a country that is better than it is now and First Nations know prosperity, not poverty.”

During the Sunday service at the Saskatchewan Conference of the United Church of Canada’s annual meeting at Spectra Place, three ministers from around the province were honoured in retirement.

Mini relay honours cancer survivors It was relay week at Sacred Heart/Sacré Coeur School last week, capped off with the Mini Relay for Life. The school hosted events and fundraisers from Monday to Friday, with the mini relay held on May 31. The school had 10 local cancer survivors appear for the ceremony and complete the survivors’ lap, before being joined by family and friends, and finally the school at large on the relay oval in the school’s gymnasium. Mary Antonenko is this year’s honourary chair and she addressed the school before the luminary ceremony. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2010 and underwent two surgeries and six rounds of chemotherapy treatment. “It was very challenging after the treatments to pick up and carry on because nothing is the same after you have cancer,” she said, noting she always kept a very positive mindset throughout her illness. Avery Wheeler, Tia

Sacred Heart School hosted the Mini Relay for Life last Friday, and the school’s three co-chairs, Paige Barabash, Tia Dayman and Avery Wheeler addressed the school before the festivities began. Dayman and Paige Barabash were the Grade 8 students from the school who acted as co-chairs of the mini relay. The group said it has been a hectic week but in

the end, it will be a rewarding one. “We’ve been going around to the classrooms giving presentations on different things they can do to make themselves

more aware of the dangers. We’ve been talking about sun safety,” said Tia. The reach of those presentations went beyond risks of cancer and also dealt with physical activity

and healthy eating. Fundraisers at the school included a hat day, principal for a half-day, carnivals and a barbecue. “We kicked off last week and right after that

we got all the teams together — each classroom was its own team — and they got to come up with their own fundraisers,” added Tia. That gave the students an opportunity to get involved in the theme the organizers were trying to stress, which was that even those small in stature or young in age can take control and make a difference. Patrick Fisher, Estevan’s Relay for Life chairperson, also addressed the school. “We are not here only to recognize those people that we’ve lost to cancer, but discovering that we are getting close to getting a cure, and we do have the resources available to give help to people with cancer,” said Fisher. Fisher encouraged all of the students to spend some time with the survivors at the relay and learn the stories about how cancer affected their lives. He invited everybody to come to the Relay for Life on June 8 at the Civic Auditorium.

Farmers can look ahead with seeding coming along With winter running right to the end of April, there has now been a rush to fields to get a crop seeded in time for a good yield. Farmers now really have to dodge disease and pests, noted Shannon Friesen, Ministry of Agriculture crop specialist, who said farmers handling those issues well will produce high yields this year. The big concern for the ministry will be tracking disease and insects. The humid conditions are perfect for some crop diseases, and Friesen expects some of those will rear their head at some point this year. She said fusarium and sclerotinia as well as root rot are the most likely to be featured in Prairie fields this summer. “Now, we’re getting into some wet soils and things tend to rot a bit more,” said Friesen. “With sclerotinia, in particular, we can almost say that we will have a problem with that this year again. Last year in the southeast, we had some of the highest levels we’ve ever had. A lot of that inoculant is sitting in the grain stubble waiting for the perfect conditions to germinate.” If the summer unfolds as a wet or humid one, she said those problems will be prevalent. Sclerotinia tends to be more of an issue too, when farmers aren’t breaking up the disease cycle by growing a crop like canola in consecutive years. The grasshopper forecast is fairly good, added Friesen, and they aren’t expecting big problems from those critters. An area east of Estevan may be one to watch concerning wheat midges. “Then, probably the biggest one is the Bertha armyworm. We’re kind of right in

the middle of one of their high cycles, so there is potential in the next year or even two years that we may see increased numbers,” said Friesen. Friesen said there are some new crops that a few farmers are experimenting with in the fields. Soybeans and corn for

grain are two examples of crops some area farmers have been testing the last few years. “They’re slowly testing the waters and seeing if those work well with their rotations,” said Friesen. “There have been some challenges in getting to know the new crop, new ways of planting it. Instead of using your drill, you’re using a corn planter. Overall, it’s been successful. A

lot of guys seem to be upping their acres. Maybe last year they had 160 acres and this year they’re trying 400 or 500.” Moving into the summer, Friesen said she is expecting a largely normal growing season after hearing mixed reports

calling for both a hot and dry summer as well as a wet one. “We’ll wait and see what happens,” said Friesen. “Sometimes you have to keep in mind when the first fall frost is going to come, how many days to maturity that variety is, all sorts of factors that you have to think about.” She said many fields were about 10 to 14 days behind schedule when it came time to be seeded.

“Lots of guys were able to seed in the last part of April last year, but this year, winter just never went away,” noted Friesen. “The soil hadn’t warmed up enough to get out there. I think in the past week we really managed to catch up. We’ve had guys going 24-7 to get it in.” For some of the later seeded fields, she expects many farmers to plant lots of barley, oats and other crops that don’t need as long of a time to reach full growth. Two weeks ago the southeast was 22 per cent seeded, but by the end of last week the area’s farmers had upped that completion figure to 67 per cent. That’s just above the five-year average of 64 per cent for the period ending May 27. “We have made some great strides in the past week in terms of seeding progress,” said Friesen, who added that progress was manageable thanks to the drier weather. “This new forecasted rain may slow us down again, but we’re right on target to where we would normally be at this time.” Some seeding was slowed late last week when the Estevan area received significant rainfall. The ministry’s crop report noted that about seven per cent of the southeast’s acres are expected to remain unseeded because of excess moisture. “I know around that Lampman area, there are a lot of flues that haven’t really dried up. For the most part, I think some guys have been able to seed areas that they haven’t been able to for the past year or two. Things are better, but there are still some challenges in some areas.”

Local drivers need to obey school bus safety signals The Estevan Police Service (EPS) has received several complaints in the past few weeks concerning drivers who are passing school buses while the bus safety lights and stop arms are activated. Drivers are reminded that when a school bus has stopped and these two devices are activated, traffic from both directions, on an undivided roadway, are required to stop until the lights and stop arms are deactivated. EPS members said this issue will remain a high priority for them to the end of the

school year and their traffic services section will provide a routine patrol on school bus routes in an attempt to identify drivers who are failing to comply with these safety regulations. Police added they are implementing a zero tolerance mandate for drivers who are seen committing the offence of passing a school bus when the safety devices are activated. The fines for this offence begin at $360.

Sun Country to visit long-term care residents and families

The Sun Country Health Region’s board of directors held their regular monthly business meeting in Kipling May 29. The location was selected specifically so they could all be in attendance when it was announced that a new $25 million health centre was going to be built in that community beginning later this month. The board also released its 2013-14 budget of $141 million, subject to ministerial approval. (See related article in this week’s edition). One piece of business that was approved by the board was a schedule for senior administrators who have been instructed to visit all the longterm care sites within the region before June 15. The request has come from the Ministry of Health for senior administrators to meet with long-term care residents and their families to conduct a quality assessment review on the care and services being provided. The board also received statistical information regarding emergency medical services responses, in terms of frequency of calls and the kilometres travelled in each sector. Across the southeast region, EMS staff or contracted service providers responded to a total of 4,472 calls and travelled a total of 671,868 kilometres during the past year. This represented an increase of three per cent over the 10year average. The Weyburn EMS service set an all-time high with an increase of 50 calls and 14,000 kilometres. The total number of EMS call outs for the Weyburn service was 1,270 with

147,962 kilometres travelled. Estevan EMS responders were called out 1,007 times and traveled 144,711 kilometres. Another record high in call out services was set by the Wawota area EMS which responded to 107 calls while traveling 22,192 kilometres. In the Pangman region there were 188 calls, which was also a record. The responders in the Pangman region travelled 31,954 kilometres in picking up and transporting patients/victims to hospitals and medical centres. During the course of the meeting, the board learned that two new doctors, who are now in permanent practices in the region, have been granted privileges in SCHR facilities and

there are another seven currently participating in the assessment process established by the Saskatchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons for internationally-trained doctors. Members of the SCHR’s human resources department and representatives from several communities in the region were in Saskatoon on May 15 to greet the seven new doctors to the province and the region. There were a total of 11 educational bursaries awarded in May with nine students claiming them for nurse training and two others in the primary care paramedic program. It was also revealed to the board members that several medical, pharmacy and nursing students had been assigned to Sun Country as part of their training and as part of the region’s recruitment strategy to attract new professionals. Currently there are four nursing students engaged in clinical placements in community health, two registered psychiatric nurses, one nurse practitioner, one licensed practical nurse and five physical therapy students working in the region this spring. Two rapid process improvement workshops were completed in May. One workshop focused on developing new processes to schedule registered nurses while the second reviewed a new system for scheduling dietary support staff.

Kipling getting new $ 25 million Sun Country intensifying focus on surgical wait times of 3 months integrated health centre Kipling is getting a new integrated health centre with construction on the $25.1 million project to begin later this month. The announcement regarding the project was made by the Sun Country Health Region during a community gathering in the Kipling Community Centre May 29. Approval for the centre has also been issued by the provincial Ministry of Health. “This has been a long time coming. We know the residents of Kipling and area have been anxiously awaiting an announcement and it is a great day for the region and the community now that the time has come,” said Marga Cugnet, CEO for the Sun Country Health Region. The new centre will replace Willowdale

Lodge and Kipling Memorial Health Centre. It will provide 33 long term care beds and 12 acute care beds, emergency services as well as laboratory services and diagnostic imaging in about 4,600 square metres. The Ministry of Health will be covering 72.2 per cent of the total cost with the community picking up the remaining 27.8 per cent. The project is a design build model that will take the combined efforts of Van-Mar Construction in concert with Farrow and Number Ten Architects. The sod turning ceremony is planned for June 25. Cugnet expected the project to be completed near the end of 2014.

What's next with speed limits?

There are certain areas of the city where the newly reduced speed limit laws appear to be having a positive effect. One of those is Kensington Avenue where a reduced speed was necessary and appears to be working … for the most part. A reduced speed limit in several residential areas was introduced and, due to the traditional nature of the traffic flow, hasn’t really influenced drivers since the natural tendency has been to go more slowly anyway. However, there are still sections in this city where drivers seem to treat the road as a temporary drag strip where they can test the acceleration capabilities of their new trucks, cars and motorcycles with impunity. While the ticket count may be up with regards to truckers being penalized for not using the designated truck routes, or for speeding along Fourth Street, it seems there is still a carte blanche free pass being given to those who prefer to test their vehicles along King Street west, First Street, Wellock Road and a few other choice drag strips. What is particularly galling is the fact that school and playground restricted speed zone signs are religiously ignored by the heavy footed speedsters. It is well understood that Estevan Police Service personnel simply don’t have enough personnel or enough in the budget to tend to these re-occurring daily dilemmas on any kind of regular basis. They have made progress, but as the city grows, so do the associated problems. There is a mobile electronic sign that greets motorists with a friendly speed zone warning while informing them what speed they are travelling at, that is owned by the City but seems to have been left languishing in some forgotten spot in the city yard these days since it hasn’t been deployed for two or three years now. It was proven to be successful when it was installed in the past along First Street and Wellock Road, and would probably serve as a decent deterrent today, if someone cared to calibrate it and set it up again. With summer upon us, youngsters are heading out to local play parks in increasing numbers for longer stretches of time. They are heading out there on push scooters, bicycles, skateboards and roller blades. Sometimes they have their pet puppies on a leash. Sometimes their parents or caregivers don’t always keep up or lose track of them. These situations are primed for disaster when they meet the inattentive driver moving along at 85 km/h in a 50 or 30 km zone while texting or looking around the car seat for the loose hamburger that just got away. So far this city has been very, very fortunate insofar as we have had only a few pedestrian/vehicle incidents or fatalities, but that doesn’t mean we should treat our speed limits in a cavalier manner. It’s been a crazy winter with wicked driving conditions, and now we’re facing a spring and summer with some crazy potholes to dodge and an urge to get out and move quickly now that we have warmer weather, longer days and more sunshine at our disposal. Let’s not spoil that good summer by forgetting the kid on the bike while we dodge that pothole, text our friends or race to get to the fast food outlet before the noon rush. Saving a few seconds might prove to be too costly. We shouldn’t have to have a speeding ticket served on us to remind us that slowing down just a bit can be a very effective way to get ourselves and our neighbours through another summer … safely.

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

A good argument against federal ag. policies Those of you who haven’t met my friend, Leader-Post Financial Editor Bruce Johnstone, likely only know him by his strong opinions expressed in the newspaper — some of which you may frustratingly disagree with. Heaven knows, I share your pain. Ronald Bruce Johnstone is likely the first person I met when I moved to Saskatchewan 31 years ago. We’ve been pretty much arguing ever since — arguing about football, business, politics and, of course, the need for the Canadian Wheat Board as a single-desk seller of wheat and barley. While I might share some of Bruce’s sentiments about SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

So many not too deep thoughts to share I haven’t done this in awhile dear diary, so I have stored up a series of random thoughts I hope will stir your creative thought processes. The first observation is that the NHL playoffs should have been done by now. I love this sport a whole lot, but even the most devoted fans and players who aren’t getting paid to play, have turned their attention to other matters. Yep, I’ll still watch the final two or three games, but really, our sporting focus should be on baseball, Kate Upton’s swimwear, the Saskatchewan Roughrider’s training camp and Ottawa’s latest version of a CFL team, shouldn’t it? By the way, are they going to call the new CFL franchise the Redblacks? Really? I know Ottawa was just recently voted in as the most boring capital city within the developed nations network, so do they need to add to that dubious title by naming their football team the Redblacks? Doesn’t anyone there have an imagination or a creative thought? Things I think I won’t see in the next five years. I think I’d like to see most of these things, but I

Norm Park All Things Considered don’t really believe I will: 1) The world’s largest wholesale mall in Dundurn, Sask. 2) A truck bypass around Estevan. 3) A twinned highway in southeast Sask. 4) Low cost/low rent apartments in Estevan. 5) An irrigation system for southeast Saskatchewan farmers. 6) Thomas Mulcair as PM. 7) Justin Trudeau as PM. 8) Stevie Wonder, that Harper Boy, as a three-peat PM. 9) An elected Liberal in Saskatchewan with the exception of Ralphie, the always re-electable MP from Regina. 10) Peace in the Middle East. 11) A good ham sandwich. And then there are a few other precious items, but I won’t bore you with the details. There are great books to read this summer and there will be at least two watchable television programs

the rather undemocratic way the federal Conservatives and Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz ended its monopoly, the notion that modern-day, market-savvy farmers were well served or even still wanted the restrictive CWB is simply something I just don’t buy. However, as a highly principled person who passionately believes in the democratic process, Bruce simply did not accept the argument that Harper and Ritz had the right to end the board’s monopoly without a democratic plebiscite vote. The demands of larger producers did not outweigh the right of every farmer, even those retired and renting their land, to have a say in that vote, Bruce argues. One might not agree with his position but you do admire the integrity of Bruce’s argument. Similarly admirable is the factual basis upon which all his arguments are built. This is why one of his recent columns in which he suggests the real scandal of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government right now is not the Senate but its handling of Saskatchewan agriculture issues is such an intriguing read. In his column, Bruce calls the “wholesale dismantling of government institutions, including the Canadian Wheat Board, Canadian Grain Commission, Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration, Community Pasture Program, and Agro-forestry Development Centre more damaging in the long run in the Tory heartland of rural Saskatchewan.” I won’t re-live years of Canadian Wheat Board arguments, but I did admire one particular acknowledgement in Bruce’s column: “It’s true that the sky didn’t fall on Aug. 1, 2012, when the monopoly was removed ... just as Ritz predicted.” That said, Bruce also raised some interesting and still-

to view sometime between now and Sept. 15. I don’t know what they might be, but they better be good because the schedule of the re-runs of the re-run reality shows gets pretty old pretty fast. Thank goodness we had Mike Duffy, Nigel Wright, Pamela Wallin, Stephen Harper and that Trudeau kid for some fresh comedy performances these past two weeks. I mean it gets downright dangerous when I start comparing Uncle Si in Duck Dynasty with Stephen Harper our erstwhile PM and come up with a reasonable conclusive argument to support my theory. You just know there is something wrong in my wheelhouse. I think I need a bit more fresh air and a little less contrived TV and contrived politicians in my life. Maybe the fact I played hockey without a helmet has something to do with it. Final thought … what’s the worst-tasting food you’ve ever been forced to consume? I think mine is a toss up between parsnips and cottage cheese and toss-up is the operative word in that last sentence. Check ya out next week dear diary.

unresolved questions about the long-term impact of the CWB’s demise — including, the added costs to farmers for producer cars now that the CWB is no longer allocating them. Bruce also noted the cost to farmers as a result of Bill C-45 that changed the Canadian Grain Commission. A reduction in federal funding to $5.4 million from $37 million will surely hurt producers. Similarly, the tripling of inspection fees to $1.60 per tonne and a 33-fold increase in elevator licensing fees will add an additional $2,750 cost to a 5,000-acre farm, Bruce noted in his column. He also noted the cuts to the Community Pasture Program done without consultation that not only will put endangered plants and animals at further risk but also will cost livestock producers. “How much money will be saved? About $10 million a year, maybe a third of that in Saskatchewan,” Bruce wrote. “Who will foot the bill? Farmers again.” Similarly, the elimination of Indian Head’s 112-year-old Agroforestry Development Centre that has grown 610 million trees for farmsteads and shelterbelts across Western Canada saves a paltry $3 million a year, tiny savings to Canadian taxpayers at the expense of farmers. And while Ritz has announced tougher rules to prevent outbreaks of E. coli at slaughterhouses, Bruce noted past cuts to the Canada Food Inspection Agency makes it tough for the CFIA to enforce those rules. “Saskatchewan voters — more than half of whom voted Tory in the last election — must be wondering what they did to deserve this,” he concludes. Of course, you may not agree with all of Bruce’s conclusions, either. But, as always, he puts forth some interesting arguments.

Letters to the Editor

Rental rates are a supply and demand issue The Editor: This is a response to Catherine Foster’s letter regarding her call for rent controls. I too have been a renter since arriving in Estevan three years ago and certainly agree that rents are out of control. However, greed, while a contributing factor, is not the main driver for skyrocketing rents. You can’t blame property owners for wanting to maximize their return on investment. The high rents are caused by the fact that the city of Estevan wants to grow more quickly than the City officials are permitting the city to grow, thus stifling its growth. It is a basic supply and demand issue taught in economics 101. The demand for housing has far outpaced the supply of new housing on the market. This has driven up prices for renters and potential purchasers alike. The solution to the problem of astronomical rents is to release more land to developers than the City has previously allowed. This increase of new supply, however, means that house prices would not appreciate as rapidly. Sure it will take a few years to take effect, but the end result will be reasonable rents for renters and reasonable return for landowners. The stability of property values is a primary concern for City officials so it would be imprudent to allow the city to grow too rapidly, lest Estevan be left with too many houses and not enough people to

Those responsible should pay

fill them. However, based on what I’ve seen and what is evident in the marketplace, the City should be far more liberal with respect to land developers in order to control rents naturally, rather than forced controls, which would make Estevan very unattractive to potential investors. The City should also be concerned about the fact that real estate prices are being propped up artificially due to the fact that they are not offering enough land to developers. All around Estevan is empty land, ripe for development as far as the eye can see, so land is definitely not scarce. As with any attempt to manipulate prices, this artificial bubble could have very negative consequences for a person buying a threebedroom house for $300,000, when its real value would be significantly less in a market where developers are free to provide housing for the many workers that can’t find housing. Business leaders should also be very concerned about the insufficient residential development since many companies can’t find housing for their employees. This also prevents local businesses from achieving their growth objectives. So, it all points in the same direction ... increase property development. Sincerely, Oliver Meixner

The Editor: I was in Estevan recently and was appalled by the condition of the roads in the city. Everywhere I went, I had to slow down due to worn out asphalt with a serious washboard effect or there was one spot going down into the valley that took me completely by surprise (cursing and all) because I was just about thrown into oncoming traffic from the hole that was there and not marked in any way. And what do I say about 13th Ave? All the way from the tracks to the out-

skirts of town going north, this road was very close to being undriveable! Overall I sum it up as atrocious! The city of Estevan should be embarrassed. I noticed in the paper oil is selling for over $94 dollars a barrel and the activity chasing it from all the trucks has torn the city apart. With all the money being made from the industry, I believe these companies should be held accountable and give back to the community that is fattening their wallets. Kyle Stushnoff, Regina

Several prisoners remanded in custody at courthouse There were five prisoners in custody during Estevan provincial court on Monday. One was Cody Allen, a Carnduff man facing two assault charges. He was in custody for breaching a conditional sentence order, but the new charges came up as well. Allen was sentenced to a three-month conditional sentence order in March and had five days left on it before it was completed and his term moved to a probation order. The Crown prosecutor was not willing to release him. After a brief hearing to see if presiding Judge Kenn Bellerose would release Allen, the judge found the time Allen had been in jail since his arrest on the weekend was enough to satisfy the breach of the CSO. The Crown, however, was still unwilling to release Allen on the new assault charges, so a show-cause hearing was held. The details of the hearing are protected under a publication ban, but Bellerose denied bail. The matter was adjourned to Thursday, and Allen’s Legal Aid lawyer will be looking for an expedited trial, considering his client will be remaining

in custody. In other court proceedings, Kevin Jahn was also in custody after breaching conditions of a previous release. Jahn is awaiting a Court of Queen’s Bench trial in October for charges of forcible confinement, assault causing bodily harm and some others. He was remanded in custody until Oct. 21, after his trial, but his lawyer noted the matter may be brought forward for a bail review hearing. A third man in custody, Daniel Lowenberg, was arrested for breaching conditions of a release. Lowenberg faces a number of drug trafficking charges and is in the middle of a series of trials, with the next one scheduled for the fall. Lowenberg was remanded in custody and his lawyer requested a bail verification report be prepared with special consideration for electronic monitoring. Bellerose refused to order the report, saying there were too many reports being asked for in courtrooms, and he didn’t think it provided the judge presiding over the bail hearing with any assistance. Lowenberg will next appear on Thursday.

Estevan Mercury

Holy Family looks to future needs for housing students It hasn’t yet been brought to the board of trustees as a formal item on their agendas, but that hasn’t stopped the discussions regarding the future challenges for schools in the northwest part of the city. Wi t h s i g n i f i c a n t growth already happening and more residential development expected in the northwest sector of Estevan, Sacred Heart/Sacré Coeur School served by the Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division and Pleasantdale School, a facility under the care of the South East Cornerstone Public School Division, are already feeling the enrolment pinch, or are about to feel it. Keith Thompson, assistant director for Holy Family, recently paid a visit to Estevan’s city council chambers to discuss the matter and set the stage to open a clear line of communication between property developers, City Hall and the school division so that none of the vested interests will be caught off guard in the near future. With Sacred Heart/ Sacré Coeur being a dual stream school, the prospects for unprecedented growth are very real, Thompson told The Mercury during a May 31 interview. “French immersion is growing and that program is a big part of that

Although they have recently added an extra classroom, Sacred Heart School may need to add more space in the near future. (file photo) school,” said Thompson, noting that FI students probably now encompass the majority of the 280 students currently enrolled in that school. “There is a growing immigrant factor. Some of our new citizens have French as their first language or as a common language for them. Since Sacred Heart has the only French immersion program for elementary schools in the immediate area, they enroll there,”

Thompson said. Sacred Heart just recently added another portable classroom to house an increasing student body. Until it was ready to open, the overflow of youngsters was housed in a curtained-off area in one section of the school’s library. “ We h a v e h a d n o problem in hiring teaching staff for the French programs,” Thompson added, so that element of the programming is well

served so far. There have been no discussions about the possibility of building another school strictly for French immersion, or for an increasing English language student body. That, he suggested, might be a question for the French language community as well as Holy Family and its partners such as South East Cornerstone since Cornerstone sends their French immersion students to Sacred Heart at

the elementary level and then provides the immersion option at the Estevan Comprehensive School for Grades 9 through 12. “I don’t know if we could add another portable to Sacred Heart, it’s pretty well reached its capacity as far as that option goes. It’s quickly coming to a point where adding portables won’t be possible without affecting other elements to the school grounds. And you know, the growth here is

not unique, it’s happening throughout the province, so it’s something the entire province will have to be looking at within a four or five year period. It’s significant. “In the meantime, when we hear that the new subdivision in that area of the city could be adding 3,000 more residential units (houses, condos, apartments), we don’t want to be caught flatfooted,” Thompson said. They can do a little attendance area shuffling to send a few more students over to St. Mary’s, the city’s other Catholic School, but that option is limited since that school is also nearing capacity thanks to continued growth in all parts of Estevan. The dilemma may not be as pronounced at Pleasantdale School since they don’t have to deal with French immersion growth. With 210 students, it’s near capacity although in 2012 they opened the new school year with 224 students, so there is room for some future growth before any drastic measures may have to be taken. With a total public school student population of 8,155 across the southeast region, an increase of about 35 over the previous record-setting pace, the writing is on the wall for the Energy City and it’s future needs in accommodating a growing young student population as well as the ever-increasing adult base.

Local helipad closer to reality

Outside of a few finishing touches, the new helipad at St. Joseph’s Hospital is almost ready for use. Constructed to allow the STARS air ambulance to land in Estevan, the helipad will be the first functioning pad at a hospital in Saskatchewan. Greg Hoffort, the executive director of the hospital, said they are excited to see the pad being constructed and noted that due to funding cutbacks in the 2013 budget, a number of other helipads in the province were delayed for a year. “We went at it pretty aggressively last year and got our designs done and the contracts tendered,” he said. “Because we had done some of the work already, we were able to keep ours in last year’s budget and keep ours on the table.” Although they were able to escape the axe, Hoffort said they didn’t go completely unscathed as some of their funding was cut which forced them to make adjustments. “We had to redesign so it was essential, and we got our contractor Ed Turnbull to come to the table and reprice a modified design. We are still going to be a little bit of money short here that we will have to fundraise but we got to the point where it was still possible to continue.” Hoffort said the pad was a much-needed item at the hospital as each time the STARS helicopter came to Estevan, members of the local fire and police departments were called on to secure the area. Once the pad is in operation they will not be needed. “We’ve been landing on the road and it is such an inconvenience, we have to mobilize the fire department and the police. It just needs to happen for patient safety.”

Construction crews poured the cement for the new helipad at St. Joseph’s Hospital last week. Hoffort estimates the pad should be in operation before the end of June provided everything goes as expected. He added another positive development is that approval has been given for a pad at the General Hospital in Regina. Currently the STARS helicopter lands at the Regina airport and the patient is loaded into a waiting ambulance. • • • • • • Hoffort also touched on the drive to get a CT Scan for the local hospital.

He said there are no new developments, although he is expecting to speak with Health Minister Dustin Duncan in the near future. Earlier this year a local delegation made a presentation to the province that would see the CT Scan purchased with local funds. The plan also guaranteed local funding to pay for the first two years of operation. Hoffort said their goal remains to have the scan operational in 2014.

Today’s the UW Day of Caring United Way Estevan is once again hosting a day truly meant for a community of caring. The Day of Caring is an annual event, now in its sixth year, which encourages volunteerism and proud community spirit to come together and get things done. Today across the city more than 135 volunteers are giving up their time to help someone else in the city get a project finished, help deliver meals or clean up their properties. There are about 32 projects citywide, with volunteers splitting shifts between the morning and afternoon. Most projects take about half a day, but those that take more time will get a new crew in the afternoon to finish the job. It may be last minute, but if you’re looking to contribute, it’s not too late. United Way Estevan is once again hosting a barbecue from noon to 1 p.m. at the Alliance Church, free to all volunteers, and open to the public with donations encouraged. You can stop by there, get some food and then get registered to help out with a project somewhere in the afternoon. Lori Buchanan, United Way Estevan executive director, noted all donations at lunch will go to support their member agencies. She noted many of the projects are at individual

homes, typically helping seniors who may have trouble completing the work themselves. “The idea of the Day of Caring is to give a hand to someone who has a job that needs doing and they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do them on their own, so they need a hand,” said Buchanan. It’s the spirit of lending a helping hand that carries on from year to year, even though some of the faces extending those hands change. “It’s just a great opportunity for Estevan to get involved and lend a hand to neighbours. It’s a great opportunity to get out and meet people,” she said, adding that those unable to take time this year should keep it marked in their calendars for 2014. The projects this year will take volunteers to Creighton Lodge, Estevan Regional Nursing Home, St. Joseph’s long-term care home and Hill View Manor. Other projects will be completed at the Estevan Day Care and Estevan Bible Camp. Volunteers will be sending meals out around the community through the Meals on Wheels program. Students in the Energy City will also be getting into the excitement with projects around their schools. Students at Sacred Heart/Sacré Coeur School will be heading to St. John the Baptist Church and Centre to

do some housekeeping and other small jobs around the grounds. Some students at Estevan Comprehensive School will be serving lunch to Smile Services clients. Pleasantdale students will be cleaning up their schoolyard this afternoon. Again this year, Buchanan said the business support they received has been great. She noted some businesses are sending out crews of people to complete jobs. “We’re very grateful to see the support from some of the businesses in town for donating things toward our barbecue as well,” said Buchanan, noting Regens Disposal will be around to help with the garbage loading. She also noted they have received warm support from the City of Estevan, and she looks forward to seeing Mayor Roy Ludwig at one of the sites.

Estevan Mercury

Highly anticipated theatre opening upcoming The Souris Valley Theatre is ready for its close-up following a two-year hiatus. David Leyshon is this year’s artistic director, and he arrived recently in Estevan to get a lay of the land, before heading to Alberta briefly last week. Leyshon spoke with the Mercury from Calgary May 30 where he was collecting the theatre’s stage manager. With the first show beginning on June 13, rehearsals for A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline began on Monday in Regina. “While we’re in rehearsal our technical director is going to be tackling getting the theatre ready. He’s building sets, and he’s hanging lights, and he’s going to check that the sound system is up and going,” said Leyshon, noting that he doesn’t want the rehearsals to interrupt any of that. Each department has its own set of challenges leading up to the first curtain, he added, and rehearsals will move into the theatre after the first week. Rehearsals for the second show, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, will begin June 17. Patsy Cline will feature a cast of two, with a five-person band accompanying, while the latter sees four actors and a pianist. Leyshon said the excitement for opening night is building among the

local theatre community. “Opening night is always a celebration. I think that will be in the air,” he said. The theatre will want everyone who supports them to be able to meet the cast and everyone behind the scenes who works hard to ensure each night is a great show. Jocelyn Anderson, theatre administrator, said they are planning some special festivities for the first curtain of the year. A few local dignitaries, including a board member

the opportunity for a night out and a live show. “The challenge is just a certain amount of the unknown,” said Leyshon, regarding turning the lights back on at the theatre, both figuratively and literally. “Because the theatre has been dark for a couple of years we are just bracing and preparing ourselves for coming across the unknown. As problems arise we’ll have to troubleshoot them as we go. There’s a whole element of uncertainty. There’s a whole element of … I hope the lights turn on.” He did add that he is confident those won’t be issues, but they are question marks in the back of his head. Leyshon said the theatre does need to be reoutfitted so that putting on a show is a simple process. “It’s a funny thing. I’ve been attached with the theatre since last September or October. You spend a lot of time through the year, and there’s a very dedicated board in Estevan that’s been working very hard, and all of that is gearing towards getting actors on the stage and getting the plays put together. “In many ways, now comes the time when things get really busy, but now’s the time we’ve all been looking forward to, getting down to brass tacks and getting ready to put it in front of people and bring that theatre back to life.”

“Opening night is always a celebration. I think that will be in the air.” — David Leyshon

and Leyshon, will be addressing the summer’s first audience, and following the show, a wine and cheese, meet and greet will be open to those attending the opening night. “It will be a big step getting that first show up and running. I think after that everything will, kind of, fall in line,” said Anderson. With the theatre buildings dormant since the summer of 2010, due to the floods of 2011, this theatre season will be something of a special one, as theatre lovers once again have

“It’s going to be a rental apartment building when it’s done and we hope to take advantage of the low vacancy there.” A12

– Pinetree owner Matt Dorling

Council clears path for new apartment building A developer has been given the green light to start work on a new apartment building in Estevan. City council passed a rezoning bylaw at its May 27 meeting which changed the site of the former Valley View School, located on the 700 block of Third Street, from its previous institutional designation to a residential medium density zone. Pinetree Developments of North Vancouver made the rezoning request at the April 15 meeting and it passed unanimously last week. Pinetree owner Matt Dorling said his company is excited to get to work on the building that will add 47 much needed apartment units to the city. Dorling said they are currently in the design phase with their architects and hope to lay the foundation in either July or August with an eye towards being ready for occupancy in April of 2014. “It’s going to be a rental apartment building when it’s done and we hope to take advantage of the low vacancy there,” said Dorling who noted his company has a handful of properties in Estevan and will look to add more in the future. “I’m hoping in a year and a half we will do another

materials and building processes. It will be even more greener than a conventional wood frame construction building.” News of the apartment building is good news for Estevan as the rental market remains tight as ever. At last report, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation said Estevan’s vacancy rate was 0.6 per cent. A new report is expected soon and with the ongoing high level of activity in the area it is unlikely that number will improve much.

building just like it; a sister building to that one. I’ve already got one building at 638 Isabelle which is a thirtynine suite apartment building that is fairly new and this will be the second.” Dorling said although it is larger, the new building will have a similar look to the one on Isabelle. He said they also plan to use environmentally friendly materials in construction. “It will be good quality construction and we are building with very green, eco-friendly construction

Sask. business optimism drops For the second straight month, the optimism of Saskatchewan’s small business owners has declined. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business released its latest monthly Business Barometer last week which revealed optimism among small business owners in Saskatchewan decreased from an index of 67.2 in April to 65.8 in May, but is still above the national index of 62.1. Sixty per cent of Saskatchewan small business owners rate their overall state of business as good — the highest in Canada and well ahead of the national average of 37 per cent. Twenty-nine per cent plan to increase full time employment in the next 3 to 4 months — tied for the third highest in Canada. “Small business optimism in Saskatchewan

decreased for the second consecutive month to reach 65.8 — close to levels seen back at the end of 2010 and below 2012. Delayed spring continues to impact optimism levels, however Saskatchewan business owners remain the third most optimistic in Canada after Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Marilyn Braun-Pollon, CFIB’s vicepresident, prairie and agribusiness. “Almost two-thirds of owners report the health of their business as good — the highest in the country. And, the hiring outlook remains very solid for the next few months.” Canadian small business optimism remains cool this spring. CFIB’s Business Barometer Index shaved a third of a point in May and now stands at 62.1, versus 62.4 in April. “It’s a fairly

steep declines. Provincial highlights include: · 60 per cent of businesses in Saskatchewan say the overall state of business is good (37 per cent nationally); 30 per cent say it is satisfactory (48 per cent nationally). · 29 per cent of Saskatchewan businesses plan to increase full-time employment in the next 3-4 months (22 per cent nationally) and just 7 per cent plan to decrease full-time employment (9 per cent nationally). · The shortage of skilled labour (45 per cent) remains the main operating challenge: highest in Canada. · Major cost pressures for small business include: wages (51 per cent); fuel/energy (46 per cent); and taxes/ regulations (43 per cent).

small decline, but the index is now at its lowest point since the summer of 2012, when the economy went through a slow-motion act,” said Ted Mallett, CFIB’s chief economist and vicepresident. The patterning across the country, however, has been quite uneven. Optimism is once again highest in Alberta with its index bouncing back to 68.8 — just outpointing business owners in Newfoundland and Labrador (68.3). Saskatchewan (65.8) and British Columbia (64.9) are also above the national average. Ontario (61.9) and Manitoba (61) were just below the national average, followed by Quebec (58.9). New Brunswick (58.1) and Prince Edward Island (55.6) Nova Scotia (50), remains the lowest in business confidence after two months of

Donation To Shriners

Packers Plus presented $1,084 to the Wawa Shriners Monday. The money was collected during the OTS Golf tournament as golfers generously donated money to the service group. From left to right: John Buchanan, Doug Marches, of Packers Plus; Paul Deren and Robert Coleman of the Shriners. Coleman is also an employee of Packers Plus.

EnerGuide deadline approaching Homeowners are reminded to apply for the Saskatchewan EnerGuide for Houses grant program as the final deadline to participate is approaching. Individuals who plan to make home energy efficiency upgrades have until June 30, 2013 to complete their pre-retrofit evaluation through a qualified independent energy advisor. Homeowners must complete their energy retrofits and have their post-retrofit evaluation completed by October 31, 2013 to receive a grant for qualifying upgrades. The SEGH program began in November 2005 and was renewed for a further two years in 2011, with SaskEnergy administering the program on behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan. Over the past eight years, more Saskatchewan homeowners as a percentage of households have made energy efficiency improvements to their homes through SEGH than any-

where else in Canada. As of April 30, 2013 over 68,400 Saskatchewan households have completed a pre-retrofit evaluation. Of those households, more than 53,900 have completed energy efficiency renovations to their home and received a grant from the Province of Saskatchewan. This represents over 16.9 per cent of the homes in Saskatchewan compared to the national participation average of 9.3 per cent. “The EnerGuide for Houses program has created positive and significant change in Saskatchewan and accomplished its target objectives, such as educating homeowners and industry about changes that can be made to improve the energy efficiency of homes,” said Doug Kelln, president and CEO, SaskEnergy. “This change has resulted in removing well over 700,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions from our environment - equivalent to taking nearly 130,000 cars off the

road.” Compared to other provincial programs across Canada, SEGH has been the longest running retrofit program in Canada. When the program was first introduced, energy efficient products and equipment were relatively new on the market and not easily identifiable. “ENERGY STAR standards have increased and more products have been labeled so homeowners can make educated purchase decisions,” Kelln added. “In addition, industry has better access to energy efficient products, more experience working with those products, and established approaches better serving the needs of energy conscious homeowners.” Homeowners are advised to book their appointment with a SEGH Service Organization well in advance of the June 30 entry deadline as space is limited.

RID calls result in successful removal of intoxicated drivers On May 28, Estevan Police Service personnel were asked to look into a report of a theft of two iPods taken from a couple of 17-year-old students while they were attending a gym class. An investigation has been opened into the incident. Police then received a Report Intoxicated Drivers (RID) call regarding a possible impaired driver entering the city on the same day. EPS members identified the vehicle and stopped it, and the 60-year-old female driver was arrested and charged with impaired driving and for failure to supply an adequate breath sample for the breathalyzer examination. Another RID call came into police headquarters on May 30, but police were unable to locate the vehicle in question. A short time later, a follow-up call was made and the vehicle was found, and the male driver was charged with impaired driving and for refusing to provide a breath sample. A short time later police responded to a call regarding an intoxicated man causing a disturbance at a residence on the southeast side of the city. He was arrested for being intoxicated in public and for being in breach of the peace. Later that same day, EPS members received a call regarding a group of loud

men who were possibly consuming alcohol. The group was located and one of them was charged with having alcohol in a place other than a private dwelling. During the night, EPS members noted that a grey 2003 Dodge 3500 flatbed truck was stolen from the central area of the city. The plate number on the vehicle is 843 HQP. The vehicle has a small picker on the back as well as some welding equipment. Anyone with additional information as to this vehicle’s whereabouts is asked to contact EPS at 306634-4767. During the night of May 31, EPS members responded to a noise complaint coming from the northeast side of the city. A resident at the address in question was warned about the civic bylaw regarding noise. Another noise complaint came into po-

Ludwig attends FCM meetings Municipal politicians from throughout the country were in Vancouver this past week for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities annual conference. Mayor Roy Ludwig and Councillor Dennis Moore represented Estevan at the event which was highlighted by the release of the Report on the State of Cities and Communities which looks at the challenges facing cities large and small throughout our country. The FCM also called for a closer relationship between municipalities and the federal government . Ludwig said one of the major points of discussion was the government’s announcement that a long-term, sustainable infrastructure fund would be launched in 2014. He noted that FCM has spent years working with the government on the fund and many communities are excited to see how this will impact them. “I have talked to (MP Ed) Komarnicki about what this will really mean for

the City of Estevan and they are still crunching the numbers because it is new and doesn’t actually get unrolled until 2014,” Ludwig said. “We will be very interested to see what we can obtain out of this funding.” Ludwig added that the meetings are also an excellent opportunity to speak to other communities that are dealing with similar issues and learn how they handle them. “It’s interesting to note that a lot of them have the same common problems and issues that we have, mainly infrastructure and wastewater issues, garbage issues and water issues so it’s interesting to see that we are not alone.” According to a press release from FCM, the report calls for a new, lasting and strategic federal recognition of the role municipalities play in meeting national objectives. It also calls for new federal partnership mechanisms, a real policy framework for

cities and communities so that every time a new challenge arises, the federal government is ready and knows how to work with mayors and councillors. “For Canada to embrace the 21st century with confidence, it needs cities and communities that contribute according to their full potential,” added president Karen Leibovici. “Jurisdiction and the Constitution can no longer be used as excuses for inaction.” The report acknowledges the advances made in federal-municipal relations over the past decade, especially in infrastructure funding, like the Gas Tax Fund or the stimulus program, but makes the case these advances have been ad hoc, in response to political expediency or shortterm needs. We must look to a better decision rather than to re-invent the wheel with the Government of Canada every time a new issue arises and requires a close working relationship, the report says.

lice headquarters a short time later, also from the northeast sector of the city. This time the noise was coming from a basement suite so a male occupant was also warned about the city’s noise bylaw. During the early morning hours of June 1, EPS members observed a vehicle being driven in a questionable manner as it pulled into a parking lot at a business on the east side of the city in an industrial section. The vehicle’s operator drove into the lot and turned the headlights off and when police arrived they observed there were no occupants in the vehicle so they searched the area and located a 26-year-old Estevan man hiding under a piece of equipment, a short distance from the vehicle. The man was arrested for driving while impaired and for driving while his blood-alcohol content was over .08 per cent. Police also learned that the man was prohibited from driving and that the vehicle was unregistered. The vehicle was subsequently towed from the site and placed in a secure compound while the driver was subjected to breathalyzer examinations before being placed in cells until regaining sobriety. He has also been given a future court date to answer to the variety of

charges he now faces. A 22-year-old man was handed a 24hour driving suspension following a breathalyzer test that indicated his blood-alcohol level was above .04 per cent. Throughout the evening EPS members dealt with an ongoing dispute between roommates at a residence in the south central part of the city. The dispute was a civil law matter so police spoke with the parties in an attempt to keep the peace. A report of an assault taking place at a lounge in the east central area of the city resulted in one man stating he had been assaulted by another Estevan man. An investigation was started into the incident. On the night of June 1, a 26-year-old Estevan man was arrested for being intoxicated in a public place in the north central area of the city. He was also charged with being in breach of court-ordered conditions regarding a curfew and non-consumption of alcohol. He was lodged in cells until sober and now has a new court date. An unattended fire in the south central area of the city was reported to police on the night of June 1. The inattentiveness was due to a loss of communication between roommates so the fire was extinguished and no further policing action was required. A report of a possible impaired driver in the city was received by police on the night of June 2. As a result of the call, a 20-year-old woman was charged with being in possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana, impaired driving and for refusing to provide a suitable breath sample. The driver and her passenger, who was also intoxicated, were then released into the care of a sober family member.

Estevan Mercury

Marching for a Cause

Employees of the Estevan branch of Western Financial Group walked Fourth Street on Wednesday as part of the company’s Support The Cause initiative, which sees raised funds directed to causes in the local community.

Council Briefs

News and notes from the May 27 regular meeting of Estevan city council A delegation from the Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division came before council at the beginning of the meeting. Keith Thompson, assistant director of Holy Family, handled the bulk of the discussion and touched on a handful of issues impacting the division including taxes and Sacred Heart School, which is a growing concern

for them due to an increase in enrolment numbers. The two sides agreed to have an open line of communication and Mayor Roy Ludwig encouraged Thompson to bring any concerns or issues to their attention in the future. • • • • • • Jim Halladay, the owner of M&H Taxi in Estevan, spoke to council about the

City’s bylaws regarding taxis in the Energy City. Halladay expressed concern that a new company recently opened in Estevan and in his opinion was allowed to do so with very little overhead costs because of provisions in City bylaws. However, Halladay did not express what exactly he would like council to do about the matter and what he

would like to see changed. Councillor Dennis Moore seemed to echo the sentiments of council when he asked Halladay to come back to them with some kind of proposal that they could look at and perhaps vote on. • • • • • • Council received correspondence from the Southeast Regional Library regarding the fees they will be

charged for 2013. The total, which is based on a formula that charges the City $30.53 per resident, was $337,475 for 2013. Council expressed concern about the charges, noting that not only are they very expensive, they also have no say in what they are charged each year. • • • • • • The City’s request for

funding from the provincial government through the Community Airport Partnership program was denied. In a letter from the government it was noted the new GPS approach system which the City is looking to purchase for the local airport was not considered a high priority item. The City was also asking for money to create a new airport master plan. It was also noted in the letter from the government that there were some issues with the City’s application and council said steps will be taken to ensure that does not happen again. • • • • • • Although there were a couple of slight changes, the recommendations of the council remuneration committee were passed. The report called for a pay increase for council and the mayor that would put them in line with similar sized communities in Saskatchewan. It also recommended that all members be docked pay if they miss a meeting moving forward. However, a motion was presented to allow for three absences before any reductions were to happen. The recommendations, with the change regarding absences, passed by a 5-1 margin with Councillor Lori Carr casting the dissenting vote. • • • • • • Council passed a bylaw to increase fees at the City dump. It will now cost $5 for the average visit to the dump. Costs for everything else also increased, in some cases by a significant margin.

“It’s amazing what adrenaline does in a fight. It felt like my arm was falling off. I knew I was hurt, but I just kept going.” — MMA fighter Derek Daku on winning a fight in Shaunavon last month despite tearing his bicep.

www.jlsbikeskate.com #2 - 938 Eva Street, Estevan • 306-634-8006

Justin Medler (75) led from start to finish in the special sport modified feature held at Estevan Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Emmel earns first career mod victory Riley Emmel knew one of the best was chasing him down, but he didn’t panic. Emmel held off Ed Turnbull down the stretch for his first career victory in the modified feature on Saturday at Estevan Motor Speedway. “To get the first win is unreal, especially in a modified at my home track, it feels good to finally get one at my home track. I’ve been trying for two years now. It’s about time I’ve got it,” said Emmel, who took the lead early in the feature and never let it go. Turnbull would finish second, followed by Les McLenehan, Joren Boyce and Tyler Wagner. “I heard Ed coming, I knew he was coming. I just couldn’t see him, so I said, ‘I’m still good, keep going, keep going,’ and I pulled it off. It feels good,” said Emmel. “I was relieved, especially having Fast Eddie behind me, that gets you a little scared. I was looking up (at his number) on the leaderboard and I didn’t see (his car) at all, so I just kept driving my line, didn’t change anything. The car was excellent and it went really good.” Mike Hagen, who didn’t finish the race, was the early leader before being overtaken by Emmel. There were no yellow flags for the first 19 laps of the feature. Chris Hortness pushed as high as third before falling back to a sixth-place finish. “I wanted to get out front as quick as I could so I wasn’t hanging back, trying to wait for other guys to pass. I knew this track was going to stay how it is and I knew my car was going to be perfect. I just drove the crap out of it as hard as I could and tried to stay out front,” said Emmel. He added that Speedway volunteers did a good job preparing the track, considering how much rain fell last week. The program featured a special sport modified feature. The track has considered adopting sport mods as a regular

class for the last two years. There were only eight cars, seven of which began the feature. Justin Medler of Minot won the feature, leading from start to finish. Only four cars finished the race, with Jordan Huettl taking second, followed by Darren Medler and Rick Hanson. Medler, who is in his second year of driving a sport mod, said he was hoping for a bigger field. “It kinda stinks because you don’t get much bragging rights for beating seven cars. They’re still good competitors there. I wish Estevan would just take them on full-time and you’d see the car count go way up. We get 27 in Minot and 15-20 in Williston. It’s a pretty good class. I like it and it’s not too expensive. It’s easy to run,” said Medler, who won the points championship in Minot last year. Medler, who has driven a hobby stock at EMS in the past, said the move has taken some adjusting. “This has been a lot tougher of a car to get used to. It’s a lot more tight under power, you can’t just swing it around wherever you want. We’re getting it figured out,” he said. Meanwhile, Jeremy Swanson of Corning, Iowa, won his second straight stock car feature, having also taken the checkered flag on May 17. Swanson battled Austin Daae in the early going before Daae was forced to withdraw with 11 laps left. Joe Flory then challenged Swanson for the lead, grabbing it at one point, but Swanson regained top spot with four laps left. Flory came second, followed by Dustin Byler, Nathan Burke and Tanner Matthewson. In the hobby feature, the Beeter brothers racked up another win at EMS, as Brandon Beeter earned his second win this year at Estevan. His brother Brock won the May 17 feature and Brandon

took the season opener May 4. Cody Kravanya was the early leader in that race before giving way to Blaine Durward. Beeter got past Durward with five laps to go and hung on for the win. Keith Mattox finished second, followed by Dana Brandt, Brad King and Dylan Crozier. The next Speedway action comes next weekend with a doubleheader on Friday and Saturday.

Rohatyn eagles 18th hole to win OTS title Nolan Rohatyn’s second shot on the final hole of the weekend proved to be the difference-maker. Rohatyn eagled the 18th hole to win the championship flight at the 56th annual Estevan Oilfield Technical Society tournament at the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club on Sunday. Rohatyn carded a 70 on Sunday to edge Jay Astles, who had qualified with a scorching 68 on Saturday, by one stroke. “I hit a fairly OK drive. I was about 185 (yards) out and hit a great seven iron to about eight feet. I hit a pretty good putt and made her,” Rohatyn said of the 18th hole.

“I thought the putt was for the win because I heard Brett (Blackstock) was one-under going to 17 and saw him bogey 17. I wasn’t sure what happened up ahead (on 18). Jay was even with me going to 18 and he just missed his eagle putt, so I thought mine was for the win. “There’s a lot of good guys in the championship flight. You just try to shoot the best number you can.” Rohatyn was consistent in the final round, shooting 35 on the front and 35 on the back. Anthony Melle was third with a 71, and Blackstock rounded out the championship flight with

a 74 after faltering down the stretch, with a bogey on 17 and a double-bogey on 18. Rain on Friday pushed the qualifying round — which also serves as the championship round for the 18-hole division — to Saturday. But Rohatyn said the course was fine when play resumed. “It was good. It dried up quite a bit and the course was in real good shape for the time of the year.” All 18 holes at Woodlawn were in play for the OTS tournament for the first time since 2010, and Rohatyn said the new back nine is impressive. “It’s going to be awe-

Big Dogs lose two on northern road swing The Estevan Tarpon Energy Big Dogs remain winless after a pair of losses on a weekend road trip. The Big Dogs (0-5) fell 24-9 to the Prince Albert Predators on Saturday and 23-13 to the Saskatoon Smash the next day. Estevan had only 14 runners available for the two games. “When we’re running the same guys over and over and over again on the floor, our kids are going to get exhausted,” said head coach Evan Handley. “We need all our bodies to show up. I know kids work and stuff, but they’ve known the schedule for a month and a half.” The Predators, a Prairie Gold Lacrosse League powerhouse in recent years, struggled out of the gate with three consecutive one-goal losses. But that ended against the Big Dogs, as Prince Albert exploded for 10 goals in the first period and 11 more in the second. Tyler Tilford led the Predators with

four goals, while Blair MacFarlane, Bennett Hopkins, Lucas Johnstone and Rhett Carlson each added a hat trick. Jagg Carlson (2), Brady Leachman (2), Braelan Frenette, Kyle Sawchuk and Brody Holishi also scored. Dylan Smith powered the Big Dogs’ attack with five goals and three assists, with newcomer Tison Schoenthal adding a hat trick. Michael Bittman also scored. Rhett Handley played set-up man all day with eight assists. “They are a good team that moves the ball well. They capitalized when we made some mistakes,” Handley said of the Predators. “We didn’t do a good job keeping the ball out of our own net. We gave up some breakaways. By halfway through the second, we were pretty much beat.” The Big Dogs scored four goals in the first period and two in the second before Smith scored a natural hat trick in the third. That was the only period where Estevan

matched the Predators, who also scored three goals in the frame. Prince Albert put the game away for good with a stretch of eight straight goals in the second period. “We kinda got down on ourselves for a few minutes. It seemed like every time they shot the ball it went in, and lots of times it was just guys not being on their man,” Handley said. On Sunday, the bad blood between the Big Dogs and Smash from last season spilled over as there were two fights. “They play a very tough, physical game and they did that with us. We gave up some bad breakaways. We just did some things we shouldn’t do, and it bit us in the butt,” said Handley. Although the Big Dogs scored six goals in the first period, it was another rough period defensively as the Smash countered with 11. Handley said that’s an area that needs

to improve, noting that the players who are used to playing in a defensive role are doing well, but those who don’t have as much experience are struggling. Jack Oakanee starred for Saskatoon with a seven-goal showing. Cody Schwan potted five, while Daniel Martina (3), Bailey Malkoski (2), Spencer Murphy (2), Jamie Flemming, Morgan Upton, Brendan Sullivan and Brendan Murphy also scored. Smith (4), Schoenthal (3), Handley (2), Ty Currie (2), Mark Moriarty and Ryan Frehlick provided the scoring for Estevan. Along with improved defensive play, Handley said the Big Dogs also need to be more effective on the power play in order to turn things around. “These teams, they have kids who have grown up playing, and we’ve got kids who have never played before,” he said. The team is on the road again this weekend, visiting the Regina Riot on Friday and the Moose Jaw Mustangs on Sunday.

For the second straight year, Estevan bodybuilder CeaAnna Kerr has finished in second place at the annual Toronto Pro SuperShow. The massive event ran Friday through Sunday, with Kerr’s event, the women’s physique category, taking place on Friday. Toni West won the event and Mindi O’Brien finished third. Kerr had plenty of competition, as there were 15 women taking part in the category.

Football Elecs hold spring camp Although the number of players taking part wasn’t quite as high as they would like, the Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs got a look at their returning players last week at their spring camp. The four-day camp that wrapped up Thursday saw 33 players sign up, although actual attendance topped out at 24 due to other commitments. “There were some issues with work and 4-H and baseball and things like that, which is understandable. We were hoping for a little bit of a better turnout, but overall we were pretty happy with the kids that did come out. We had a mix of returning vets, kids coming up from the (bantam) Steelers and some kids who had never played before,” said Elecs head coach Mark Schott. “Ultimately we’d love for our numbers to be in the mid-40s, but that’s ideal and maybe down the road we can get there. If we can get around 35, that’s a good start. We always have anywhere from three to seven kids join partway through the season,” Schott added. With some players present who had never played football at any level, Schott said the focus was on keeping the drills simple. “Initially, we wanted to break into positional groups, but our numbers were slightly lower to start the week, so we just did some basic skill work, general offensive and defensive skills, did some form

tackling, receiving, kicking, handoffs. “We progressed into some more introductory skills toward the end of the week. We got some contact drills in and had a half-line scrimmage. We didn’t get too advanced because we didn’t want to overwhelm anybody, especially since we had a lot of new players. We kept it simple, kept it fun for the week and we just wanted to see what the athletic skills were.” Looking ahead to the fall, Schott said he expects to have “a really strong receiving corps” comprised of a couple of returnees and some newcomers from the Steelers. “They had a really strong receiving corps down there.” Defensive backs should be another strength for the Elecs, and although the coaching staff hasn’t identified all of their linebackers yet, Schott expects that group to be solid as well. That said, the team needs some help on both the offensive and defensive line. “In terms of weaknesses, we really need some big bodies out there,” said Schott. “That’s an area we need to address and recruit some more players.” The Elecs are still looking to add more players and coaches “as long as you’re willing to commit,” Schott said. Anyone interested in playing or joining the coaching staff is asked to contact Schott by e-mail at mark.schott@cornerstonesd.ca

Bill going overseas with national team again Estevan water polo player Auriel Bill had a once-in-a-lifetime experience last summer. Luckily for her, she’s going to do it again. Bill has been selected to represent Canada on the national youth team this summer for the second straight year. The top 16 players selected will be training in Montreal before heading to the Netherlands to compete in an international tournament. After that, the team returns to Montreal for 20 days of training to prepare for the water polo Pan-American Games being held in Argentina from Aug. 23 to Sept. 1. Bill was also a member of Team Saskatchewan this season. The squad has one tournament left, the Youth Cup, which takes place in Montreal July 1-8. Team Sask. has had their best year ever, going undefeated with a 12-0 record in the inaugural year of the Western Women’s League. Saskatchewan also won gold at the Saskatchewan Open, B.C. Open, Alberta Open, and at another tournament in San Francisco. Bill was named to the All-Star team at the B.C. Open. Most recently, Saskatchewan earned a silver medal finish in the 22-and-under National Club Championships held in Gatineau, Que.

Estevan Mercury

Daku wins marathon thriller in Shaunavon  It took an enormous effort and a serious injury, but Derek Daku managed to get the win in a fight described as more of a war. The Estevan mixed martial arts fighter took a fight in Shaunavon on May 25 on short notice and won the main event at Rumble in the Cage 47. Daku defeated former Shaunavon resident Tyler Illerbrun by unanimous decision. “It turned out to be quite a war, that’s for sure,” said the 47-year-old fighter. Daku tore his bicep in the first round, but instead of withdrawing, fought another two rounds. “It’s amazing what adrenaline does in a fight. It felt like my arm was falling off. I knew I was hurt, but I just kept going.” He will need surgery, with an estimated seven to eight

weeks of recovery time, and he has been told he can’t fight again for at least five months. Daku said he felt he won all three rounds against Illerbrun. “I think I had a couple of pounds on him. The guy was around 26, a big muscular kid. I wanted to keep it standing, but his stand-up was pretty good. He caught me with a few in the first round. I ended up taking him down in the first. In the second round, I took him down and took it to him, and the third round, I had a mount on him most of the round. “My ground game was far superior to his and I could take him to the ground pretty much whenever I wanted to,” Daku added. With only two weeks’ notice, Daku wasn’t able to train as long as he would have liked, and he felt it after

the fight. “That’s the most tired I’ve ever been in my life. After the fight, you go into the dressing room and sit down and I don’t think I moved for 10 or 15 minutes. I was exhausted.” It was Daku’s first fight since winning on Dec. 1 in the Virgin Islands. He said he wants to do one more amateur fight, then he’ll have a chance to get a pro fight in Las Vegas late this year or in early 2014. Daku said the timing of the fight would be largely up to him, as the Tough Enough series in Las Vegas is always looking for heavyweights. When he’s not in the ring, Daku is the co-owner of Prestige Fight Club MMA, an organization that held its first card in April in Weyburn. Former Hard Knocks Fighting Club promoter Cord Crowthers is the other owner.

Softball teams compete in Saskatoon Estevan Girls’ Softball sent two teams to the Summer Classic Fast Pitch tournament in Saskatoon on the weekend. The Estevan Gem Well Elite bantam team posted a 3-1 record, while the Estevan M&H Elite squirts went 2-1. The squirts played in a 16-team field in the Squirt B tournament. They opened with an 18-11 victory over the Muenster A’s after taking a 5-1 lead after the first inning. Estevan starter Emily Hanson held the A’s to five runs in three innings, with Morgan Walter pitching the last two innings. In their second game, played less than three hours after their opener, the Elite fell 20-10 to the Humboldt Thunder, failing to overcome a slow start. The squirts edged the Saskatoon Super Sonic Lasers 17-15 in their third game on Sunday morning. Saskatoon took a 5-3 lead in the first inning and held it until the bottom of the third. Both teams continued to pile up runs until the Elite hit their five-run maximum in the final inning, then held the Lasers to two runs in the bottom to pull out the win. The squirts needed Muenster to beat Humboldt in order for them to reach the semis, which didn’t happen. Meanwhile, the bantam girls opened their 18-team tournament with a pair of dominant wins, crushing the Saskatoon Raiders 16-1 in three innings in their

The Elite’s third game was much closer, as they trailed the Prince Albert Aces 5-2 entering the bottom of the seventh. Macy Earl and Blanchette began the comeback bid with a pair of walks, and Kristen Skjonsby stepped up and drove in both with a triple to straightaway centre field. Schaff then hit an RBI single to tie the game. After that, Mackenzie Ronyk walked and Cheyenne Odgers singled to load the bases for Madison Frehlick, who drove in the winning run. Marcotte pitched into the sixth inning for Estevan, when Schaff came in to close

out the game. Estevan lost 10-7 to the Macklin Lakers on Sunday morning, which ended their hopes of making the semis. Schaff and Marcotte pitched for the Elite. Macklin took a 7-4 lead in the second inning and Estevan wasn’t able to stage a comeback. Earl and Skjonsby shared the catching duties for the bantams all weekend. The team’s next tournament is in Watrous next weekend. Meanwhile, the peewee Rocket Sales Elite team will attend a tournament in Moose Jaw the same weekend.

Speedway contenders becoming clear Saturday’s race program at Estevan Motor Speedway featured two 2013 repeat winners and a first-time feature champion. Riley Emmel was the big story of the night, winning his first career modified feature in front of his hometown fans. Emmel has come close before, but on Saturday he took the lead early on and never gave it up. Meanwhile, Jeremy Swanson won his second straight stock car feature, and Brandon Beeter won his second hobby feature at EMS this year, giving the Beeters three consecutive wins to begin the Speedway slate. The mod standings are still wide open, with Les McLenehan on top, and Ed Turnbull, Tyson Turnbull and Ryan Harris all within 10 points. Other traditional contenders like Aaron Turnbull and Mike Hagen have had quieter starts. In the stock car standings, Gregg Mann and Kelly

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out Henderson are both within 10 points of leader Joe Flory. Three-time defending champion Rocky Alexander is in a tie for eighth; he has a new car this year and it would appear that it’s taking some time to work out the kinks. In the hobby class, it has been the Beeter, Beeter and King show, as the two brothers and Brad King — who all race out of the same garage — are within six points of one another. Although it’s still very early, if these trends keep up we

could be looking at some new season champions this year. *** It sounds like Estevan fighter Derek Daku will get a shot at a pro fight in Vegas sometime around the turn of the calendar to 2014. Aside from a loss to formidable opponent Devon Smith last June, Daku has done nothing but win at the amateur level and as he said, at his age, if he’s going to jump to pro he’s got to do it sooner rather than later. Daku has been a tremendous ambassador for Estevan and is nothing if not humble. Of course, Daku can’t start looking at the pro opportunity until his arm heals up. He tore his bicep during a fight last month in Shaunavon and is slated to undergo surgery. Contact Josh Lewis at 306-634-2654 or sports@estevanmercury.ca. Dealing with the Leafs’ collapse is so much easier watching Pittsburgh fold like a cheap tent against Boston. That was sarcasm.

Riders open camp after off-season makeover SASKATOON – 2013 Saskatchewan Roughriders training camp opened on Sunday in Saskatoon with a pair of workouts and although there was just a smattering of fans on hand for the morning session, the stands at Griffiths Stadium were packed for the afternoon practice. What the fans saw was an absolutely staggering amount of talent assembled on that synthetic turf! I mean, really, Roughrider GM Brendan Taman and head coach Corey Chamblin have put together a virtual all-star team for 2013 as Saskatchewan gets set to play host to the Grey Cup this November at Mosaic Stadium, which is being renovated to accommodate 44,000 fans. First of all though, welcome back and thanks

for reading this weekly Rider Insider column again this season here in the Estevan Mercury. This is a monumental year and it’s shaping up to be a thrill-a-minute! When we last left you the Roughriders were walking off the field in Calgary following a crushing 36-30 last-minute defeat to the Stampeders in the West Division semifinal in November. Although rookie coach Chamblin posted a three-win improvement from the disastrous year before (8-10), he knew that the club lacked a veteran presence if they are serious about challenging for the Grey Cup in Regina this time around. They got that in spades this off-season, landing the CFL’s all-time leading receiver Geroy Simon from B.C. in a Janu-

Rod Pedersen Rider Insider ary trade. A month later Taman came out as the undisputed winner in free agency, landing the 2012 Grey Cup Top Canadian, defensive end Ricky Foley, along with defensive back Dwight Anderson, who’s generally regarded as the tops at his position in the CFL. The Riders also stole defensive back Weldon Brown from Edmonton and linebacker Tristan Black from the Grey Cup champion Argos. However, the piece de resistance didn’t come until Sunday morning, just

a few hours before the start of training camp.  That’s when the team officially announced the signing of free agent defensive end John Chick. The Wyoming product won a Grey Cup with the Riders in 2007 and was the CFL’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player in 2009 before bolting to the NFL for subsequent stops in Indianapolis and Jacksonville. However, after a brief auction for his services last week between bidders Hamilton, Saskatchewan and Calgary, Chick elected

EB's

to “come back home.” To me, that’s the icing on the cake. The cherry on top. This signing is what should push the Riders over the edge and into the Grey Cup in their own stadium once the snow starts flying. Although I have the Riders pegged for a second-place finish in the

West (remember, Chamblin has a lot of work ahead of him bringing all these new faces together), it’s my bold prediction that this club will be back in the dance for the first time since 2010. And, after a bitterly long, cold winter, the dance is finally about to begin!

Estevan Mercury

New back challenging but appealing It was the summer of 2010 when the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club last had 18 playable holes. The Coles Notes of history will say the waters came and washed the final nine holes completely away in 2011, leaving management to redesign the vanished holes with the help of original course architect Les Furber. Last week, in the spring of 2013, the holes were unveiled. Representing the Mercury, I donned my soft spikes, collected my clubs and participated in the course’s sponsor round on May 23, allowing those donors of exceptional standing to get the first glimpse of the refurbished back nine. The roughs are a little rough, but there is no trouble getting a good lie in the fairways. The greens are shaggy and slow, but they’re full and surprisingly soft. With some warm weather throughout the summer, the greens will

Jordan Baker Thoughts From My Fingers roll true as they get shaved down to more appropriate lengths. I never played the previous back, so my playing partners Mel and Ryan Siever and Norm Nicol helped fill me in on the most sweeping changes as we hopped from hole to hole. The change they seemed most excited about was the contours in the greens. There will be some interesting breaks as golfers will be required to putt along the spine of a ridge or across and down a severely undulating slope. With some creative pin placements, there will be some tough two-putts

awaiting the average duffer. The story for the back nine is accuracy. With more water coming into play, there won’t be many opportunities to hit your tee shot into the adjacent fairway and still knock an approach close for a birdie putt. Hole 10 is all about finesse. The tee shot must clear the river, but with a sharp dogleg right, power hitters will have to ease up to ensure they don’t run it through the fairway. A good tee shot sets up a short approach somewhere inside of 150 yards into a green back across the river. The 11th is a driveable

par four, but with the river running tight down the right side, a long iron or hybrid may be more common off the tees. A bomber bailing out to the left side of the green could find a tricky pitch, with the green running away. The back shows its teeth for the first time on Hole 12, a dogleg right, playing 460 yards from the tips. Playing into a gale wind as we were, a par would be welcome, but a bogey would be more realistic for most. Local golfers will be begging for westerly winds to help on that hole. The following 13th eases up on the gas a little, with a mid-length par four that should provide opportunities for a birdie for those who find the fairway. That could help make up for the big number that you scored on 12. The 14th is the hole that could challenge as the surprise signature hole of the back. Appealing to

Hole 6. Don’t try to show off your inner pro by attacking pins on the left side of that green. With water left, even shots 50 yards right are better than five yards too far left. The final hole is hailed as the ultimate lay-up or go-for-it challenge. A short par five, with water running in front of the green and a pond curling around three-quarters of it, it’s a challenging two shots to hit the green and avoid the danger. Everyone who plays regularly will have a “number,” the yardage at which they will attempt to hit the green in two shots. I don’t like flirting with water, so mine will probably be about 200 yards. Anything outside of that and I will be punching a lay up to about 80 or 100 yards. And that’s a hard number. At 205 yards, I’m punching it up short of the river, catcalls questioning my masculinity be damned.

the eye, the short par three requires a short to mid iron over water and into a large, rolling green. There is potential for a close approach, but you could also be left trying to map out a 60-foot putt with two or three breaks. The first par five on the back is at 15, with a finely shaped dogleg angling gently to the right for the entire 500 yards of the hole. With water running the length of the hole on the right, there is plenty of danger for those hoping to find the green in two for an eagle putt. The 16th will play hard into the wind but much easier with it. The green has lots of slope on the right side. That’s where the tough pins will be. A hole location tucked behind a green side bunker in the front right will tease and challenge golfers of any ability. The long 17th may be the most challenging par 3 on the course, rivalling

immensely.” ECS only sent 18 athletes to regionals in Carnduff due to injuries, but 16 of those moved on to districts in Weyburn. Along with many podium finishes at districts, ECS also had three athletes win the top points award in their age group. Two athletes set new meet records. Several athletes started the season with two months of pre-season training and conditioning by working hard four days a week to get in shape and get a head start on the competition.

Meals on Wheels thank you luncheon highlights

The Happy Wanderers, a group of musicians who deliver favourite old-time music, were special entertainers for about 80 Meals on Wheels volunteers attending a thank you luncheon on May 30. The group consists of, from the left: Bob Cutler, Norm Morrow, Vince Waynert and Bill Unra . Another group member, Al Heidinger is missing from the photo. It was a relaxed early afternoon event enjoyed by about 80 Estevan and area volunteers who have made themselves available to deliver thousands of meals to shut-in citizens who find it difficult to get out of their homes or to navigate around a kitchen. The Meals on Wheels thank you luncheon was a big success once again, starting with the music of the Happy Wanderers, an old time orchestra who entertained the early arrivals with their classic songs from the past. The Wanderers consists of Al Heidinger, Bob Cutler, Norm Morrow, Vince Waynert and Bill Unra. Deborah Augey, co-ordinator for the Meals on Wheels program in Estevan, served as emcee for the afternoon that included the presentation of certificates to groups and individuals who have made the program a success over the years. “This is the seventh year I’ve been involved with it,” Augey told the group who enjoyed the luncheon provided by the staff at Days Inn. Bernadette Wright, manager of Home Care Services for the Sun Country Health Region, brought greetings and Tammy Watchman, the new home services manager was also introduced to the volunteers. Lori Carr, a member of the Sun Country board of directors, brought greetings as well, noting that

loved ones wouldn’t have the support if it weren’t for the Meals on Wheels volunteers. “You may be the only person they’ll see that day,” she said. “If you weren’t there, people couldn’t stay in their home and stay healthy,” said Wright, when she spoke to the gathering. “It’s been a difficult winter for you, I just hope you continue to stay with us for many more years.” Augey noted that the long-serving volunteers have had a tendency to stay involved and there were a few newcomers to add to the delivery action teams this year too, along with four more corporate volunteers in McGillicky Oil Services, H&R Block, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Signature Service and TS&M. She also thanked the spare drivers who are often called out on short notice to bolster the service. “We’ve gone from 20 to 24 groups who are providing deliveries and we have seven pairs of spare drivers along with nine church groups. Altogether we have about 250 volunteers involved in this,” Augey said. The total number of meals delivered last year came to 4,295, which absorbed 1,036 total volunteer hours with an average of 358 meals being delivered each month.

One trio of long-time volunteers for the Meals on Wheels program in Estevan shared a few notes during the thank you luncheon sponsored by the Sun Country Health Region. Jim Johnson (left) chats with Arlene and Ken Anderson.

Creighton Lodge news It’s almost June and now we’re all in a panic to buy the flowers and vegetable seeds and get everything put in the ground. We’ve had anonymous donations (which we are so appreciative) to the Lodge of very many perennials, annuals and soil and it’s going to look like Buchart Gardens when we’re through planting!!! We’re already seeing some radishes popping out of the ground in our raised garden beds in the back. F & L Concrete supplied us with the raised beds and we plant tomatoes, zucchinis, radishes, onions and lettuce for the kitchen to use for our meals. That would be the gift that keeps on giving!!! Our resident, Willy Hanelt has offered to water our gardens for us – that will be such a great help. We had a pretty busy May with our regular activities and some special events too. We exercised up to four times a week with Audrey Dupuis, Monica MacKenzie and Kellie Harrison. We’re now able to get outside and do our laps around the building and we are sure enjoying the fresh air. We carried on with our Bingo nights with the help of Frank de Both, Sarah Harder and Darla Wilhelm. Our regular bingo callers were unable to come this month. We also want to put in a special thank you to Room by Room Furniture for donating to us a beautiful stool for our Bingo caller to sit on. Pat and Barry O’Handley have been more than supportive of Creighton Lodge. Thanks also to Prairie Mines for the lovely flower table centers they delivered to us last week. What a difference it made to our dining room. We look forward to our visits from Christina Wock’s

puppies every Wednesday evening. They are from the Dog Therapy program, trained through St. John’s Ambulance. We were also provided with our worship services from the Ministerial Association, and St. John’s Catholic Church, St. Paul’s United Church and Trinity Lutheran Church provided us with mass and communion. Musically, we were entertained by Freddie and the Freebies, the Happy Wanderers, Bob Olson and his granddaughter, Ella Messer and Susan Moser, and the Church of Christ Singers. We had a visit from a few of the Grade 6,7 and 8 students from Pleasantdale School who played bean-bag toss with us. We then had juice and treats and visited with them. We really appreciate their thoughtfulness in wanting to share their time with us. All the residents would like to extend our sympathy to Ellie Foster at this time of the passing of her partner, Henry Biberdorf. We enjoyed his visits when he would accompany Ellie to Creighton Lodge to sing. Some special events that happened this month were our visit from the Sobey’s pharmacist to talk about Restless Leg Syndrome and Sleep issues. Very interesting! We joined in the celebration tea for Mary Grube’s Birthday. We want to thank Mary’s friends and family who donated to our building in lieu of birthday gifts for Mary. Along with Mary this month, we celebrated birthdays with Theresa Zimmerman, Tom Graham, Ray Holmes and Theresa Dukart. On May 10, volunteers Doreen Dirks, Doreen Hagen and Mary Martin Drader

put on our Mother’s Day Tea for us. Our cook, Lori Elliott baked up a storm of wonderful goodies and we used our fancy Tea cups for everyone. How nice it was. We all received a lovely flower also. The ladies from the Torquay Lutheran Church brought us in two bags full of quilts to distribute to some of our residents. They were all bright and beautiful and very warm. The residents were very pleased and want to thank the ladies very much for that donation. We were treated to an extra special surprise this week when Donna and Lawrence Burnard appeared at the kitchen door with five rhubarb custard pies!! The rhubarb came from Jeanne Wanner and Donna and Lawrence baked the pies. Thanks to everyone for such a nice dessert. There will be some

pounding going on around here soon as we are going to take off the overhangs on the north and south sides of the building. Good news is that the actual roof is in good shape, but the overhangs are not. Hopefully as we finish some other repairs around the building we can concentrate our efforts into fundraising for the expansion of the lounge. We still have quite a ways to go with our fundraising but we will persevere until we have enough to go ahead. You can tell by our increasing waiting list, this building is essential for the seniors of the City of Estevan and surrounding area. That’s all this month for news. Please feel free to come by and gaze at our lovely flowers, sit in the gazebo and join us for a cup of coffee. The grounds are beautiful and our season is so short!

Friday, May 31 was postponed until Thursday, June 6 due to the weather. If the weather still does not cooperate, there will be no Track and Field this year. There will be no school on Friday, June 7. Mainprize Market Place will once again be running once a month down at Mainprize Park in the Pederson Building. Dates this year are June 15, July 13 and August 17. For tables contact Julie Van Alstyne at home or email mainprizemarketplace@yahoo.ca.

LAINTON In Loving Memory of James Who Passed Away June 8, 1990 We do not need a special day To bring you to our minds The days we do not think of you Are very hard to find. They say time heals all sorrow and helps one to forget But time so far has only proved, How much we miss you yet. God gave us strength to take it And courage to bear the blow, But what it meant to lose you No one will ever know. You never failed to do your best Your heart was true and tender, You worked so hard for those you loved, And left us to remember. - Forever remembered and sadly missed by Stan, Paula and family.

FARMLAND WANTED NO FEES OR COMMISSIONS! We have recently completed a very successful sale of our farmland to Freshwater Holdings. From the first point of contact, and throughout the sale process Freshwater Holdings was always in touch with us to make sure that all was going as discussed. Doug Rue (Freshwater Holdings), has been very approachable and forthright from the beginning. There was never any pressure, nor unfair dealings during the process. The deal was handled very smoothly and efficiently. When an issue arose, Doug was always in contact to help work out the situation fairly for all parties. We certainly would recommend dealing with Freshwater Holdings for any land discussions, and/or sale. Regina and Bill Kossatz

A Day Off "So you want a day off. Well, let's take a look at what you are asking. There are 365 days available for work. There are 52 weeks in a year in which you already have two days off per week, leaving 261 days available for work. Since you spend 16 hours each day away from work, you have used up 170 days, leaving only 91. "You spend 30 minutes a day on coffee breaks; that accounts for 23 days, leaving only 68 days available for work. With an hour lunch period, you have used up another 48 days, leaving just 22 days for work. "You usually spend two days on sick leave. This leaves just 20 days available. We offer five holidays? So your time to work is now down to 15 days. We generously give you 14 days vacation, which leaves only one day for work, and I'll be damned if you are getting 'that' day off!" Anyone care to check that out? Have a good day!

Neil Diamond tribute Friday at Legion His voice may not be what it used to be, but Neil Diamond can still sell out concerts and provoke girlish screams from the audience. His charisma was — and still is — legendary. Joey Purpura has lived and breathed Neil Diamond since 2004, travelled across the country and parts of the Caribbean with his tribute show Diamond in the Rough. “I’ve always been able to do voices, as long as I could remember,” said Purpura who will be performing his tribute to the singer Friday at 8 p.m. “When I found out I could do a pretty good Neil Diamond, my friends encouraged me to go on stage.” The singer wasn’t on Purpura’s radar growing up and so he really started from the ground up. In 2002, the Toronto-based impersonator began researching the singer’s life, studying his every move, song and story behind the music. He found a Las Vegas-based designer able to replicate Diamond’s glittery costumes of the mid-70s.

“I wanted to research his life because I not only sing his songs, I tell a story and highlight his life just to make it more interesting,” said Purpura. He searched for little known facts about the singer. For instance, Diamond grew up in the same neighbourhood as Barbara Streisand and they went to the same school and sang in the same choir. Purpura also discovered Diamond was a pre-med student and was six months and 10 credits short of a pre-med degree when he abandoned his studies to pursue music. “He recorded and released a lot of albums and so he has a huge back log of music,” Purpura said about the singer’s international appeal. “And he continues to tour. His music is very diverse and his songs, as one biographer said, cut through your heart and soul, making you feel his pain, anguish and joy.” Tickets for the show can be purchased at Henders Drugs or in the Legion Club Room.

Estevan Mercury

Do you remember?

TEN YEARS AGO: For the third consecutive year, a threeperson panel of judges found the city of Weyburn to be cleaner and prettier than Estevan as the annual clean-up campaign came to a conclusion this past week. As a result, Debra Button, Weyburn councillor and chairwoman of that city’s clean-up campaign, left Estevan on May 27 carrying the plaque and Golden Garbage Can presented to the winning city. The ninth annual Estevan Humane Society Dog Jog that took place on June 1 was a successful venture according to president Jocelyn Doherty. It was reported 36 dogs registered for the event, which meant between 50 and 60 people were on hand to enjoy the day’s activities that were held under ideal weather conditions. After expenses were paid, it was expected that between $2,600 and $2,700 would be realized for the society’s programs and new facilities. Kim Hilkewich survived a nervewracking 18th hole, 40-foot putt to save par and get into a four-man playoff for the championship in the 46th annual Estevan Oilmen’s Golf Tournament on Jun 1. He then persevered in the playoff scramble that lasted for three holes to take the title. Hilkewich beat out perennial contender Scott Blackstock who had captured the title more than a dozen times, along with Rick Halberg and Sean Garagan. All four had carded a final round 74 to earn the right to play more golf to determine the ultimate winner. Joel Stepp of Torquay, who recently

completed his fourth season with the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League, agreed to a three-year contract with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. Stepp had been selected by the Ducks in the third round of the National Hockey League’s 2001 Entry Draft. Had he not signed with Anaheim by 3 p.m. on June 2, the former TS&M Bantam AA Bruin would have gone back into the draft that was set for Nashville later this month.

TWENTY YEARS AGO: Prime Minister Brian Mulroney named Len Gustafson, former member of Parliament for Souris-Moose Mountain, to the Senate. The new appointees were announced on May 26. A huge drop in gate receipts and fundraising revenue were the reasons given for why the Estevan Bruins lost over $22,000 last year, according to the year-end financial statement presented at the club’s annual meeting on May 25. Regular season gate receipts were down $17,000, and revenue from major fundraising projects fell by close to $40,5000 compared to 1992 when the Bruins made a profit of over $50,000. Jay Quirk, who graduated from the Estevan Comprehensive School in June 1992, returned to ECS on May 27 to be presented with the Governor General’s Medal and a Canada Scholarship by principal Colin Keess. The Canada Scholarship carried a value of $10,000. The Governor General’s Medal goes to the student with the highest average in

the graduating class, with Quirk’s average being 94 per cent. From a list of nominees dominated by teenagers, Ken Cairns and Heather Forsyth, a pair of older athletes, were announced as the first-ever Estevan and district Male and Female Athlete of the Year Award winners. The announcement was made during the Estevan Celebrity sports Dinner on May 29. Forsyth, the current provincial women’s trapshooting champion, and Cairns, who ran the Boston Marathon for the first time this past spring, were chosen by the award selection committee from a list that included eight male and 10 female nominees. THIRTY YEARS AGO: A special award was presented to Phil Attrill in recognition of his 13 years of dedicated service as a member of the civilian committee to the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, No. 30 Wylie-Mitchell Squadron, Estevan. Jan TerHart made the presentation during the annual inspection of the squadron on May 29 at the Estevan Airport. Also during the inspection, Doug Cook came up a triple winner when it came to presentation of awards, as he was the top male in the range competition, won the physical training award and the most improved cadet award. It took 10 years to make it a reality, but the Estevan Woodlawn Golf and Country Club now had a sprinkler system. On May 27, the installation of a semi-automatic sprinkler system on the greens and a manual system on the front nine fairways

Career Opportunities

was completed, as was the installation of a 40-gallons per minute turbine water pump. The whole project took about four weeks to complete and cost approximately $92,00. Two-thirds of that cost would be covered by government grants, with the golf club responsible for the remainder. Estevan bowlers brought home two medals from the Canadian 10-Pin Federation championships held May 21-23 in Montreal. Gary Harbourne of Estevan and Ken Nichol of Regina combined for a score of 1,705 in men’s doubles in the regular or handicap division to win the bronze medal. In the women’s regular or handicap division, the team of Shelley Brasseur and Lois Giesbrecht of Estevan, Dee MacIsaac of Moose Jaw (formerly of Estevan), and Kelly Rolls of Regina had a total pin fall of 3,387, giving them the silver medal. The Reverend S. John Saddleton of Estevan, who had assisted as a deacon for the past three years in the Anglican Church Parish of Estevan-Bienfait, was ordained a priest of the church by Archbishop Michael G. Peers on May 20 in St. Paul’s Cathedral, Regina. The impressive celebration was attended by a number of Estevan-Bienfait parishioners. Saddleton would continue to serve as honourary assistant in the local parish, as well as assisting in neighbouring parishes where the services of a priest were required. Saddleton celebrated his first Eucharist on May 22 in Estevan, after which he was presented with a preaching scarf on behalf of the people of the church.
