Lemonade With A Purpose New Anesthetic Cool Two little girls decided to do some positive things last Saturday afternoon by setting up a lemonade stand close to Rusty Duce Park in Pleasantdale to sell lemonade, cupcakes and cookies at 25 cents a pop, or a donation, with all proceeds going to the Gentle Hands Machines orphanage in the Philippines. Isabella Semenuik (left) and Gracie Dzuba, with the help of their moms, enjoyed serving a steady stream of customers, netting them $222 for the orphanage. For St. Joe’s August 1, 2012

WEATHER & INDEX Thursday

A 62-year-old woman is dead after she was hit by a truck while attempting to cross the street Monday morning. According to information from the Estevan Police Service, officers received a 911 call at 8:50 a.m. informing them that a pedestrian was struck at the intersection of Souris Avenue and Third Street. EPS members and Estevan RCMP officers, as well as EMT personnel, quickly responded to the scene and discovered a woman in distress. She was eventually transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital where she passed away from her injuries. The deceased was identified as Karen L. Hancock. EPS stated that the

Word of the accident quickly spread throughout Estevan Monday and was

also a topic at city council where pedestrian safety and speed limits within

Estevan have been hotly debated over the past few years. ⇢ A2

Woman killed in car-pedestrian collision

The release of the police reported crime statistics for 2011 contained some mixed results for the city of Estevan. Although Estevan rose in overall and non-violent crime numbers among communities with a population of at least 10,000 people, the city’s violent crime severity index dropped. The annual report, which is

)RUG6DOHV/WG

compiled by Statistics Canada, is a tabulation of the crime numbers from over 200 police forces in the country. After taking stock of the numbers, Statistics Canada creates a crime index, which takes into account the types of crimes as well as other factors such as the population of each community. Estevan’s overall crime index rose from 133 in 2010 to 156.7 in

2011, a figure which placed the Energy City 16th overall in Canada. The non-violent crime index also took a large jump, moving from 142.6 in 2010 to 180.1 in 2011. That spike moved Estevan all the way to eighth overall in the country. If there was one positive in the report, it was in the violent crime severity index, a tabulation of such offences as assault, battery and

sexual assault. After rising in 2010, the number dipped slightly in 2011, going from 108 to 96. Nationally, Estevan went from 54th place in 2010 to 58th in 2011. The fact that Estevan’s overall crime index rose in 2011 was certainly not a surprise to anyone. As had been previously reported in The Mercury, crime has been on the rise over the past few years. ⇢ A2

Phase 3 of Dominion Heights gets green light The final hurdle to a new residential neighbourhood in Estevan has been cleared. At their regular meeting Monday, city council approved Trimount Estevan Developments’ subdivision plan for Phase 3 of Dominion Heights. Final reading was also given to a bylaw to amend the city’s zoning map. The pair of moves will allow Trimount to move

forward on a plan that calls for 35 new residential lots. Mayor Gary St. Onge said he is looking forward to seeing Trimount begin construction. “I guess they are ready to start,� St. Onge said following Monday’s meeting. “We need the lots, let’s get them going.� Along with the 35 lots for single family dwellings, the plan that was presented

at Monday’s council meeting also calls for 36 townhouse style dwellings, 17 duplex dwellings and four fourstorey multi-family residential condominium buildings which will have 137 units among them. In all there will be 225 units which can house 518 people. The plan also calls for the City to retain a 2.09 acre parcel of land which may be used for a new fire station to give Estevan one on each

side of the train tracks. Lots in the new subdivsion will have a frontage ranging from 16.09 metres to 17.43 metres in width and depth ranging from 35 to 40.99 metres. The duplex lots are expected to have a frontage of 11 metres and depth of 36 metres. The design of Phase 3 will contain the single– detached lots to the south area of the subdivision. As it proceeds north, it will

transition to the duplexes and townhouses and the multistorey condos. With respect to roads, the plan said Nicholson Road will be extended to the north. A new collector road, which will be called Morsky Road, will intersect with Souris Avenue north. There will also be a new local road named Larter Road and a cul-desac named Macready Bay. A registered buffer strip, which will provide some separation

between the single-family lots and the multi-family units to the north, is also part of the plan. During the post meeting interview, St. Onge also noted the City may soon have some lots available in Phase 2 of Dominion Heights. The lots initially sold out last year but it appears some of the people who purchased them have not done any work and will have to turn them back to the City.

Councillor calls for safe driving ⇠ A1 Councillor Lynn Chipley said while the news was tragic, she felt it was only “a matter of time� be-

fore a pedestrian was killed. “Speed is an issue in this town,� said Chipley. “I’m a walker and a runner,

and I end up running in the leisure centre pretty well all of the time because it’s just not safe on our streets and

that is really, really sad.� Chipley also pleaded with motorists in the city to slow down.

City’s violent crime index drops This poll was posted on www.estevanmercury.ca from July 24 - 31 This week’s poll question: What do you think of current home prices in Estevan?

⇠ A1 In July, the Estevan Police Service released the crime statistics for the first six months of 2012 and, as had been expected, crime was up considerably. “For the first three

years of my term as chief of police here we have set new records every year with the growth of the city,� Chief Del Block said in the July 11 edition of The Mercury. “We are on pace to set a new record in 2012 again for just about everything.� Asked for his opinion on why crime has continued to rise, Block said the boom in the local

economy has attracted a number of people who are assets to the community as well as a number of people who are more involved in “the criminal aspect.� “I’ve quit calling it an oil boom, I call it an energy sector boom. We’ve got the mines expanding, we’ve got power expanding, the oil industry is expanding. It’s not just oil that is driving this. There

are some huge projects going on at SaskPower; we’ve got a lot of transient workers, upwards of 600 on one job, so it’s not just oil that is creating the problems.� Estevan was not the only Saskatchewan community to crack the upper reaches of the crime index. Regina ranked 25th overall but was first among communities with a population of at least 100,000 people while Saskatoon was 27 th in the overall and second for larger cities. Among Saskatchewan’s smaller centres, North Battleford had the highest ranking in not only the province but the entire country. North Battleford had an overall crime index of 361 and a non-violent index of 389.5 which was also first. For violent crimes it was third in the country with an index of 286. Prince Albert was second for violent crime and fifth for overall crime. Yorkton placed seventh for overall crime and was ninth for violent crime. Moose Jaw and Swift Current were the two other Saskatchewan communities in the rankings. Moose Jaw was 37th overall while Swift Current was 34th. N a t i o n a l l y, c r i m e continued to decline, dropping by six per cent from 2010. The violent crime index dropped by four per cent.

“The bottom line for us is demonstrating integrity of storage.� A3

Aquistore soon to move into testing stage With most of the industrial activity around Estevan centring on coal mining and oil drilling, residents of the southeast are used to depending on what’s under their feet. The Aquistore project takes that dependence to a new sub-level, as researchers at the Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC) complete their work, which is expected to lead to a storage facility for carbon dioxide more than three kilometres below ground. An open house was held July 24 at the drill site for media, local dignitaries and observers from Japan, South Korea and South Africa, who received tours of the active drilling rig and information on the project. The project’s crew is drilling the evaluation well at a rate of roughly 11 metres every hour. Drilling will take 40 days and be complete in a few weeks. Shortly afterward, they will be drilling the observation well. The Aquistore project

is being done in conjunction with construction of the carbon capture facility currently underway at Boundary Dam Power Station’s Unit 3. Once it becomes active in early 2014, the captured carbon will be sent via a pipeline a few kilometres west of the power station and into a layer of sandstone. What the PTRC is depending on is that the rock formation they will be injecting the liquefied CO2 into holds the carbon, while the thick layer of shale above it acts as a lid, preventing any of the CO2 from escaping back up to the surface. Erik Nickel, senior project manager with the PTRC and geologist on the Aquistore project, said there are two layers of sandstone from the Winnipeg formation and the Deadwood formation they will be injecting the CO2 into. “Those two act as the container,� he added, while the shale in the Winnipeg formation sits just above

and acts as the “shield.� The layer of shale is between 60 and 100 metres thick. A province-wide poll released in July by International Performance Assessment Centre showed that 43 per cent of people would be concerned by a project like this implemented within five kilometers of their home. The concern may come from perceived environmental risks if the carbon were to seep through the cracks and reach the surface through the multiple layers of rock. Nickel said that isn’t an issue, saying the shale is a sufficient cap, and they have done tests to prove that point. Nickel said they have taken samples of the geochemicals in the different layers of rock beneath the ground. Their tests have shown the water in the different layers has not been mixed, demonstrating that liquids in the porous rock layers are not seeping through the hard shale layers.

Nickel demonstrated further by spraying water on a few rock samples at the drill site. When he sprayed the sandstone, the water penetrated the rock, entering the little pores between the grains and leaving the rock dry. The CO2 will be stored inside the sandstone in the same manner. When he sprayed the shale sample, the rock rejected the water, which flowed and dripped off the surface. If a leak did occur, he said it would more likely be through an old oil well that wasn’t properly cemented and sealed. Project leader Malcolm Wilson noted the importance of the tests they will be running. Later this year the PTRC will be testing the storage process by injecting food-grade CO2 into the sandstone so they can monitor the plumb, how the CO2 flows through the rock, and whether or not there are any leaks. “The bottom line for us is demonstrating integrity of storage,� said Wilson.

One of the visiting observers looks around at the Aquistore site with the drill looming behind.

Dangerous driving leads to 18 months jail time An Estevan man will serve jail time after leading police on a high-speed chase on Highway 39 that ended in a head-on collision. A joint submission agreed upon by the Crown and defence was presented to presiding Judge James Benison, which called for Justin Yakimchuk’s incarceration for 18 months. The 19-yearold Yakimchuk was in custody on Monday at Estevan provincial court, and pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing bodily harm, evading peace officers, theft, assault and a number of breaches of his conditions. Crown prosecutor Andrew Davis described the events from March 3 that saw Yakimchuk steal a taxi van and lead Estevan police on a pursuit that reached speeds of 175 kilometres per hour. Police were alerted to the stolen car at about 1:30 a.m. and located it before Yakimchuk fled the scene behind the wheel. The pursuit lasted until the vehicles passed Halbrite, and the Weyburn RCMP were called in to assist.

“The vehicle was driving very fast and very erratic, passing other vehicles,� said Davis. Things came to a head, added Davis, when Yakimchuk was passing another vehicle north of Halbrite and drove head-on into an oncoming car. There were two occupants in the oncoming vehicle, a man and woman. Davis said the injuries they suffered were not life threatening but significant. The male had a broken sternum, and the woman had experienced several cuts, including some around her eyes. Yakimchuk was found to be impaired by both alcohol and cocaine and broke his ankle in the collision. “He was evidently suicidal and may have been attempting to take his own life in the course of this, obviously with total disregard for other people,� said Davis. “Mr. Yakimchuk, by his actions, caused significant risk to the public, including the officers who tried to pursue him. He could very conceivably cause serious harm or death to himself or somebody

else.� Yakimchuk’s Legal Aid lawyer Greg Wilson noted his client was going through a “very rough� time in his life. When paramedics attended the scene, Yakimchuk threw his phone at one of them. In his sentencing, Benison appeared tentative to accept the 18-month sentence. “The sentence that has been proposed here today is not necessarily the sentence that I would have imposed without the joint submission,� he said. “I have some serious concerns about the danger that was caused to the public in this case, however taking all of the circumstances of the case, and the fact that Mr. Yakimchuk, you are still young, I find that the proposed sentence is appropriate.� Following the 18-month jail term, Yakimchuk will be subject to a 12-month probation period and will be under a driving prohibition for two years. In other court proceedings, Randy Clark was sen-

tenced to a federal penitentiary term of two years plus a day after pleading guilty to fraud, forgery and theft. Clark has a lengthy criminal record of related offences and was recently sentenced in Estevan at the end of June to a conditional sentence order for similar charges. Davis told the court Clark aided a young person in stealing his landlady’s chequebook and acting as co-signer so the young man could open accounts in two local banks. Two cheques were then deposited in the youth’s name and withdrawn immediately from the accounts. The total amount withdrawn was $1,485.20. Benison asked Clark if he wished to say anything before passing sentence, and Clark replied, “No, I just want to get on with it and get back to my cell.� Benison accepted the submissions and sentenced Clark to two years plus a day in a federal penitentiary. In court proceedings from July 26, Norman and

LET THERE BE

LIGHT

Dorothy Desautels appeared in court for a trial for failing to appear at a previous sentencing. The married couple were found guilty of tax evasion earlier this year and sentenced to jail time, one year for Norman and six months for Dorothy. The couple appeared on July 26 in prison-issued clothing and handcuffs. While they had previously represented themselves for their other court appearances, they both had an administrator in court to represent them for their trials. That was their intent. Dean Clifford, who is not a lawyer, stepped forward in a T-shirt and shorts with his hair tied in a tight ponytail and sunglasses resting on the top of his head. Before he was able to enter the front of the courtroom, presiding Judge Karl Bazin stopped him, requesting he remove the sunglasses from his head. “They are fine where they are,� answered Clifford. Bazin told Clifford he would not allow him to speak for the Desautels if he did not

follow the court’s rules. Clifford conceded and removed the glasses, noting to the judge that he was not doing so because he was obeying a direct order but rather in respect to the “painting on the wall,� referring to the image of Queen Elizabeth II. When Bazin asked if Clifford would be acting as agent for the Desautels, he said he was not. He told the court he was the administrator of their estate and power of attorney. Bazin decided not to permit Clifford to represent the Desautels as he was not satisfied the man was acting as agent for the accused. The Crown gave its evidence, noting the Desautels’ absence from their sentencing and subsequent arrest by RCMP officers, while neither of the Desautels supplied any testimony or argument. Bazin found them both guilty and ordered a fine of $150 or a one-day concurrent jail term that would be served with their current terms.

Estevan Mercury

New anesthetic machines purchased for St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital is in a better position to help Estevan and area residents thanks to a significant new purchase. The hospital announced on Thursday it has purchased two new anesthetic machines for its operating rooms. While unveiling the new equipment to local media, it was noted the machines cost $200,000. Of that total, $110,000 was provided to the hospital by the Sun Country Health Region through the provincial Surgical Initiative Program while $90,000 came from the St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Foundation. Greg Hoffort, the executive director of St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, said the addition of the machines is a huge step forward in outfitting their surgical suites for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a very talented team at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and it is important to furnish them with state of the art equipment such as we have here today,â&#x20AC;? said Hoffort who added the purchase would not have been made without the co-operation of all three groups. Dr. Medhi Horri, who is the anesthetist at St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, said he is thrilled to have the new equipment to work with and commended all involved for their efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was really urgent, this was really needed and I really appreciate the people who really worked fast and dealt with the people they needed to deal with to

St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital unveiled its new anesthetic machines Thursday. The recently purchased equipment will allow the hospital to perform more surgeries and also means patients will not have to venture out of Estevan for some procedures.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can do more extensive procedures, more complicated ones. Our ORs have the capacity to do better surgeries compared to Weyburn because of the nature and structure of the rooms.â&#x20AC;? -Dr. Medhi Horri make this happen,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes my job easier and it makes it way safer for the patients.â&#x20AC;? Horri added that along with making things safer for patients, the new

machines will also expand the services St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is able to provide to the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can do more extensive procedures, more complicated ones. Our ORs have the capacity to do better surgeries compared to Weyburn because of the nature and structure of the rooms. But we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the devices to go with it, now we have it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a chance that a surgeon can come here to do procedures â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an orthopedic surgeon or other specialists in general surgery â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and

we are capable of providing anesthesia for those procedures. This means the patient does not have to travel for two hours to have a procedure that can be done here at home, we can look after them post op and they are close to home and families can come visit them and they can be released faster.â&#x20AC;? Horri said the equipment should also help Estevan in its never ending battle to recruit physicians to the city. Sun Country CEO Marga Cugnet, who was on hand for Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

unveiling, concurred with Horriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments on the impact the equipment will have with regards to recruitment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When physicians come down or specialists come down and look at the facilities, they certainly always look at what type of equipment, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available and what they

are used to working on,â&#x20AC;? said Cugnet who added the equipment will also provide Sun Country with some synergies between St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the Weyburn General Hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are operating similar equipment so they are familiar with it. The same with our operating room nurses.â&#x20AC;?

Rural gate torn down Damage to a metal gate on a piece of property south of Estevan close to the Canada/U.S. border has led to an investigation by the Estevan detachment of the RCMP. The police suspect that a vehicle was used to pull down the gate sometime between July 10 and 16. Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to contact

the Estevan detachment at 637-4400 or report anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800222-8477. Crimestoppers does not subscribe to call display and the caller does not have to reveal their identity. A cash reward of up to $2,000 may be paid for information that leads to an arrest on this offence or on any serious crime or drug related offence.

New water reservoir on schedule Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new water reservoir is on time and on budget. The $8 million project, which is currently under construction behind St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital, began in 2011 and is expected to be operational early in 2013. Kevin Sutter, who is the manger of Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water treatment plant, said the reservoir remains on schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vessel itself is built and now they are working on the pumphouse portion,â&#x20AC;? Sutter said in an interview Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Phase 1 to be done, they have to finish building the building and put in the piping and the equipment for that pumphouse and backfill.â&#x20AC;? Sutter added the current work is part of the first phase of construction and he expects the second phase of work will begin in August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The second phase will be the separating of the (water) distribution system into two pressure zones. They also have to put in two bolts that separate the distribution system and also connect the distribution system to the reservoir. That hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started yet. Phase 3 is just some modifications at the water treatment plant to supply the new reservoir.â&#x20AC;? Although it comes at a significant cost, the reservoir is a crucial piece of Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future growth. Approved at a council meeting in September and in the planning stages for many months prior to that, the reservoir was needed if the city wants to continue expanding north. When completed, the new reservoir will help the City create the dual pressure zone that Sutter previously mentioned and greatly improve water pressure for residents in Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north

end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest benefit that this will provide is allowing us to increase pressure in the higher elevation parts of the city without

having to increase the pressure in the lower elevations of the city,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus the additional storage gives us a bigger safety margin if something went awry. We

would have more storage in the city. It would give us two days of water under regular, average use once this thing is built.â&#x20AC;? Aside from the work

on the reservoir, Sutter said they have purchased new equipment for the wastewater treatment plant and will need to build a new structure to house it. The City

has also purchased land behind the water treatment plant and will build an area to treat some of the sludge that is created by the water treatment process.

Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new water reservoir is currently under construction behind St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital. The $8 million project is on schedule to be commissioned in January 2013.

Using water So why aren’t we using the water? We have acres of potable water at our beck and call in the form of the Rafferty and Alameda reservoirs, and yet we are doing precious little with it in terms of investment, development and recreational pursuits. The question came to mind again this week following a forward push being made by the Upper Qu’Appelle Water Conveyance Project that sponsored a tour of the Moose Jaw-Regina area, promoting the prospects of irrigation programs in that region. The proponents of the Upper Qu’Appelle proposal estimate that the pumping, reservoir and spillway costs would come in around $455 million, but it would be well worth the effort. Which begs the question again — why aren’t we using the water we already have? We don’t require spillways ... that was checked off the list decades ago. We don’t require a reservoir, we have those already and nothing needs to be pumped into them. In fact our recent troubles have been created by not being able to pump enough of the water out in an orderly fashion to prevent flooding. We have fertile valley land, plains and plateaus that appear to be suited for crops that would take to irrigation. We have an ambitious and creative agricultural community that has successfully explored all kinds of nontraditional crops. The weather conditions are conducive to growing much more and different crop species if we cared to. We understand the soil conditions are not as rich as they might be around Lake Diefenbaker, but agriculture specialists inform us that there is no real legitimate reason not to pursue the prospects of irrigation and that has been seconded by those who are in the business of irrigation in the Outlook/ Elbow/ Saskatoon catchment area where projects have already met with success. New irrigation technologics make the prospects much more feasible and that will only get better. It is a shame that we haven’t made better use of this vital life-giving resource other than to use it to bring oil up out of the ground and to build a few cottages around reservoirs in just two small patches where miles of potential shoreline begs to be developed for a variety of recreational and business pursuits including golfing, camping, boating, fishing, et al. Boundary Dam’s reservoir ended up with an ad hoc development plan decades ago, an almost unintentional result that came with the damming of water for a power station. Yet even with Boundary Dam as a modest template, we haven’t been able to get a decent development plan off the designer’s desk. At first we thought we could blame the politicians since Rafferty and Alameda came to life just as the provincial government was changing hands. It was well known the incoming NDP of the day were certainly not interested in completing the previous Conservative government’s project. But even with the return of a government that might have been more inclined to revive the plans and projects ... a government that might have been more friendly toward local developers and recreation- oriented businesses, it hasn’t happened. A Rafferty boat launch near Estevan languishes, only kept alive thanks to devoted local fishers and boaters who refuse to let it go. Promising cottage and economic development along the local shores of Rafferty have never been allowed to happen. Further up the line, limited developments, one and a half golf courses and a hint of business is all that has seen the light of day after all these years. Why aren’t we using the water? Why can’t we use the water?

Rural election map sees little change Compared with their city cousins, rural folk will a have lot easier time figuring out where to vote come the next provincial election. The new methodology of mapping the boundaries that excluded those under 18 years plus the addition of three extra seats - including one riding specifically designed for rural Saskatchewan - has resulted in little change to the provincial rural election map. The new rural riding is Saskatoon Stonebridge-Dakota, southeast of the city, and it takes in the bedroom communities in Corman Park, south to Dundurn and Whitecap First Nation and east to Elstow in the old Humboldt riding. Democracy watchers may question why there has been so little change in rural Saskatchewan, even though there has SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

So now who is really famous ... quickly I don’t know why, but sometimes I get into crazy conversations and it happened again. I can usually confine my crazy communications efforts to this office where we toil. We have enough off-the-wall characters around here to keep me amused for hours. So when we start discussing silly subjects, I’m usually totally engaged. I see value in silly. Usually there is no value, but I see it anyway. So, can you name 10 famous Canadians who aren’t dead or are current or retired hockey players? OK, you think you can ... then do it in under a minute. Hey, it’s just a silly game, play along, dear diary. Nobody will have to know, unless you read out loud. So right off the bat we can eliminate the guy that Weyburn adopted ... T.C. And really, how famous was he? In Canada, right on ... but do they know that much about T.C. in Pasadena or Barcelona? Then we eliminated those other well-known Canadian icons ... Wayne and Cheery Cherry, who is only famous on Canadian TV. So where are you gonna go in the one minute assigned to you? Quick now ... OK, Justin Bieber, let’s start with him, that’s a gimme. Now you can roll out the famous, non-hockey players,

Norm Park All Things Considered can’t you? People who are at least known on this continent? In baseball we have, Votto and that other guy. In music, we have a great list like Lightfoot and Neil Young, Celine (hate to admit it, but they know her in Pasadena), Annie and Shania. Still with me? In science and research, we have activist David Suzuki who is sorta famous. That’s about it from that side of the bench. We usually don’t worship our scientists even though many of them have had major breakthroughs in medicine and technology. We like underwhelming the world when it comes to research it seems. William Shatner? Still alive and pretty famous because he does ditzy television shows and commercials. Should I make it tougher on you? Do I insist that the “famous Canadian” still has to be a Canadian? In other words, if he or she has forsaken their Canadianism for Americanism, should they still count? Hello Alex Trebek. I believe you are still Canadian but not sure. C h r i s t o p h e r P l u m m e r, you’re famous and I believe

been a substantial population shift since the last major electoral boundary changes were made in 1993. So let us look a little closer at what the new rural ridings look like. In the southwest, here’s how it looks: Swift Current has become strictly a city seat with no rural component. Cypress Hills has gotten slightly bigger, expanding east past Simmie and Success right to the edge of Swift Current. Wood River has also pushed east, taking in Coronach and Big Beaver from Weyburn-Big Muddy and Climax to the west. And Thunder Creek is gone. It is replaced by Lumsden-Morse that takes in everything north and south of No. 1 Highway from Swift Current to Regina (including everything surrounding Moose Jaw) and dipping as far south as Wilcox, Claybank and Avonlea. In west-central Saskatchewan, the biggest change is the disappearance of the old Biggar seat. It is replaced by the new Biggar-Sask Valley riding, sprawling west to the Red Pheasant and Mosquito First Nations and northeast of Saskatoon to Osler and Hague. Rosetown-Elrose pushes north to the edge of Biggar and loses territory to the east including Conquest and Outlook. Kindersley sees little change, other than losing Unity. Meanwhile Martensville shrinks, with only Dalmeny and Warman as its other communities. In the northwest, there is little change except mostly for the exchange of reserves. The Battlefords picks up rural land to the east. Rosthern-Shellbrook loses the Beardy’s Reserve, but picks up Jackfish Lake and the Saulteaux Reserve. Cut Knife-Turtleford picks up Unity and Wilkie, but loses the Red Pheasant and Mosquito Reserves. Lloydminster loses Beacon Hill and Big Island to Meadow Lake.

still Canadian, and thanks to last year’s Oscar and a little movie called the Sound of Music, you’re pretty well known universally. Conrad Black ... oops, nope, he’s British, remember that big stink-off with Chretien? OK, my minute is up. How many did I get? I sorta count up 12 if I include Alex and that “other guy” in baseball. So I think I can claim a justifi able 10 quickly famous Canadians and none of them were famous for shooting anyone, so they’re famous for relatively good reasons. Who is on your quick famous Canadian list? OK, I told you I hang around with crazy people ... I am a flawed man. Can’t help it, it’s part of the job description. Next week ... your finest Olympic viewing moment? Or how about the best person to analyze a Roughrider loss in 10 words or less? I liked our office guru football commentator Gayle’s summation the best. On Monday morning I asked her opinion about the Saturday afternoon game. “They did it, and then they didn’t,” she said. Yep, that’s about right. Make sure you follow me on my Tweet and if you find me there, let me know please because it will be groundbreaking information for me.

In the northwest, Saskatchewan Rivers sees little change and Carrot River Valley grows to the south to take in Little Swan River. Melfort moves a little further southwest to take in Lake Lenore and St. Brieux from Batoche that also moves a little west to take in Aberdeen and Beardy’s. Further south in the centre of the province, we see some of the biggest changes to rural seats. Arm River-Watrous becomes Arm River, and it spreads from Outlook to the west, Kandahar and Kawacatoose/Day Star Reserves to the east and south into the old Thunder Creek riding to take in Craik, Elbow, Marquis and Bethune. Humboldt is replaced by Humboldt-Watrous, taking in Watrous, Young and Lanigan. Last Mountain-Touchwood - the bellwether seat that has voted with the government for 70 years except in 1999 and 2003 - is unchanged. In east central, Yorkton becomes exclusively a “city” riding while Canora-Pelly is unchanged, except adding a bit of rural Yorkton. Kelvington-Wadena now takes in Wynyard, but is otherwise unchanged. Melville-Saltcoats is also unchanged, except that it, too, has taken in some of rural Yorkton like Otthon and Tonkin. In the southeast, Moosomin slides further west to Francis and Osage. Cannington remains intact, although it loses Frobisher to Estevan. Estevan loses Radville and Lake Alma to Weyburn-Big Muddy that has lost Coronach to the Wood River. All in all, there has not been much change to the rural election map - especially considering how much rural Saskatchewan has changed in the last 20 years.

Letters to the Editor Constructive criticism needed The Editor: I am writing concerning Andrew Thomas’ letter of July 18 which contained a lengthy list of complaints about Estevan and its residents. Two items I really disagreed with in the letter were the comments about the mayor and town planner. The comments about the mayor’s conduct at hockey games were not fair and could not be confused with constructive criticism. I attend many Bruin games and normally sit about three rows directly behind the mayor. While I’ve heard him make less than constructive comments about missed calls by referees, they were not that bad, certainly not worthy of comment in the newspaper. You don’t have to venture too far within our own rink to hear worse. The comments about the town planner were bewildering. I don’t know if we have a town planner, who it is, or if that person lacks foresight (as stated in the letter). However no town or city planner can be responsible for the wide-ranging list of things the person is apparently not doing. Regarding the rest of the letter, once I got by the tone, personal attacks, and generalizations, I felt some of the points were valid. However I’ve lived in about a dozen locations and amazingly, not one was perfect. Each had its share of good and bad attributes (and people). If you like to focus on negative things, you can find a lot to talk about in any community. Constructive criticism is essential, but to be effective it actually has to be constructive. As well, if anyone really wants to improve our city, there are plenty of things you can do in addition to criticizing. While it’s certainly not

always the case, I’m of the opinion those who criticize and complain the most are often those who contribute the least. In spite of its many shortcomings, I think Estevan has some positive features and is a great place to live. As luck would have it, the mayor’s job will open up this fall. Our critics have a golden opportunity to resolve their issues. A word of caution though; as mayor you may not be judged for your involvement in building a new arena, but rather on your comments at hockey games in that arena. Bob Abernethy, Estevan

Work with us, not against us The Editor: I am writing this letter to address my concern over the Saskatchewan Government’s proposed amendments to our current labour legislation. I am deeply saddened that the past struggle and fight of the hard working people of Saskatchewan appears all for naught. Our fathers and grandfathers struggled to achieve our current labour rights and freedoms for all labour workers in Saskatchewan, not just unionized workers. I view Saskatchewan as a place that holds high values for having the ability to support their families. The people of Saskatchewan are proud people who work hard, play hard and devote time to their province, communities and families. The proposed amend-

ments offering our hard workers reductions in vacation time, stat holidays, changes to the standard hours of work and overtime provisions, may look attractive on paper for provincial budgetary purposes, but these proposed labour legislative changes do not fair well for the working class and their families. The people of Saskatchewan have remained in Saskatchewan because of their love for this province, not because we are getting rich from it. There is a sense of pride to belong to Saskatchewan. In every province that I have travelled in Canada, when I say I am from Saskatchewan, they always comment on our pride, the hard working people, the farmers and the Roughriders. I hope that this legacy continues to

affirm our province as being positive, family oriented, friendly, and inviting, not a province that shows little regard towards the working class, and a province that chooses to squeeze every penny they can from the workers and only providing rewards to those who already have the financial means. I am a unionized member of SGEU and a proud one. As a union member, I take pride in working with management to create a better work environment for the future generations to come. Working together is the key to a working relationship-not giving an unfair advantage to one side and rolling back the rights of the worker. Perhaps if the Saskatchewan government

would like to make these changes to our current labour legislation, they should consider giving it a trial run? Perhaps having a two-year trial period within their own cabinet and staff, just to see how things work for them first. Then, after the bugs are worked out, step on them! The current provincial government must consider having meaningful discussions with unions, members of the working class, and employers alike to revise a plan to something that will work. Better yet, consider scrapping these proposed changes to our province’s labour legislation altogether. Tracey Sauer, Proud health care worker and SGEU member Kelvington, Sask.

Estevan native shines at national pageant Learning to walk is one of the first skills we all develop as a child, but Brittany Orsted had to learn to do it all over again. The Estevan teen recently returned from her jaunt to Toronto as a participant in the Miss Teen Canada World competition. She did more than just participate, but was selected for the top four as most photogenic and is using this experience to propel herself to Ecuador. Michelle Weswaldi is the Miss Teen Canada World executive director and took a particular liking to Orsted in Toronto, encouraging her to pursue the pageant world further. That will first take her to Ecuador in September for Miss Teen Earth. There will be about 15 to 20 countries competing, and Orsted will be Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative. The quiet and shy 19-year-old confirmed that all these experiences have made her more confident, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still what Weswaldi wants to see more of from the Estevanite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had modelling in the back of my head, but I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no, this is not me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the confidence,â&#x20AC;? Orsted said. After graduating from high school in June 2011, she said she started to get more confident. When Weswaldi first told Orsted sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see her in

more pageants, she was thinking it would be a year or so before the next one, not in less than two months. After the trip to Ecuador, Orsted has another date in November to head to Vancouver for an international modelling event with women from 50 other countries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would love to pursue it. I love doing this,â&#x20AC;? she said, unable to keep her smile from showing. Her mother Sherrilee said it was a bit of a surprise to learn her daughter was selected into the top four as most photogenic. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was funny because she called me that night and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You know how I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not very photogenic,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and she had just said she saw the picture that they put out there and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My eyes look creepy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like, really?â&#x20AC;? Brittany was incredibly busy over the course of the week-long pageant. She said they only had three to five hours of sleep, with their days spent going to events, dance rehearsals, photo shoots and interviews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had an instructor that showed us how to walk properly, and there was another person that came in and showed us how to dance and what you have to do with your poses in the bathing suit and evening gown,â&#x20AC;? said Brittany.

Brittany Orsted missed because she was in a photo shoot after being selected as one of the most photogenic. She has a background in dance, but hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taken any classes in the past year. Even so, she picked up on the moves pretty quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This whole modelling experience, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done before, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all new to me,â&#x20AC;? Brittany said, particularly in regards to the walking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My walking has been improving since I went to Saskatoon for provincials. (Weswaldi) said that when I walk itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stiff, so when I walk I have to hold my poses longer and be more confident.â&#x20AC;? She was in Toronto

from July 14 to 22 representing Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s southeast after being selected at the provincial competition in Saskatoon this past March. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great experience meeting all the girls from across Canada,â&#x20AC;? said Brittany, noting there were 62 pageant participants in the competition. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an expensive trip â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the cost just to enter the pageant was $2,900 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so Brittany was expected to do some fundraising in order to help cover her costs, as well as raising funds for the pageantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary charity, Free the Children. Brittany had no trouble surpassing her goal

of $1,000, raising just over $2,000 for the organization that empowers children to help other youth around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so proud of what the community has done for me,â&#x20AC;? said Brittany. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an honour how the community supported me.â&#x20AC;? To raise money for the charity, she hosted a chipping contest, went to the Bikers Against Diabetes rodeo and appeared at the MS Walk and anti-bullying walk.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My platform was bullying, so I thought that was a great way to start it off.â&#x20AC;? She noted that she had been bullied in school and understands itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a community problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It affects teenagers and children in the community. It really touches me because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been affected.â&#x20AC;? The pageant in Ecuador is from Sept. 11 to 16 and will include competitions in both bathing suit and evening gown.

Estevan Mercury

Summer disturbance calls part of police routine A number of alcoholfuelled disturbances and incidents absorbed most of the time and interest of Estevan Police Service (EPS) personnel during the past weekend. On the night of July 27, EPS members attended to a west central residence following a report of a domestic disturbance in progress. The matter was resolved after a short time spent with police and no further action was required. Police were then called to the northeast side of the city to follow up on a report of an unconscious person inside a business. The person was arrested and charged for being intoxicated in public and was lodged in police cells until sober. A 52-year-old man was then arrested in the north central part of the city. He was charged with impaired driving and taken

into custody and lodged in cells until sober. He will make his first court appearance to answer to the impaired driving charges, on Aug. 27. A noise complaint stemming from a residence on the northeast side of the city attracted police attention later that same night. The homeowners were warned about the city’s noise bylaw and the issue was resolved. EPS members next received a call regarding some damage being done to a residence on the south side of the city. A BB gun had been fired at the windows in the home as well as the siding. The activity had caused some damage, so the incident remains under investigation. Police then attended to a residence in the north central part of the city following up on a report of damage being inflicted on some property. Police ob-

served a party in progress when they arrived so the home’s owner was spoken to and the party wrapped up. Police then made a tour of the area but did not discover any notable property damage. A female who was apparently attempting to enter a lounge to consume alcohol while under the legal age was detained by staff at a north central lounge while they reported the incident to police. She was subsequently charged with possession of false identification under the Alcohol and Gaming Regulations Act. That same night, a 51-year-old man was arrested in the central part of the city for being intoxicated in public. He was lodged in cells until sober. A traffic stop on the east side of the city resulted in a 20-year-old man being issued a 24-hour driver’s licence suspen-

sion after it was noted that the alcohol content in his blood stream exceeded .04 per cent. He was also served with a traffic violation ticket. A 22-year-old man was arrested and charged with refusing to provide a breath sample after police found him sleeping in the driver’s seat of a vehicle parked at a north central gas station/convenience store. He is slated for a court appearance on Sept. 10. There were a number of other charges laid during the night of July 27, including possession of alcohol in a place other than a private residence, having alcohol in a vehicle and minors possessing alcohol. Several other charges were laid for such things as speeding, no seat belts being used, stunting and driving through amber lights. On the night of July

28, EPS members were called to a lounge in the central part of the city following a report of a disturbance between a man and a woman. The matter was resolved without further incident. A 47-year-old man was arrested near a residence in the central part of the city on the night of July 28. The man, who had been involved in a domestic disturbance, was lodged in cells overnight. A minor disturbance in the north central part of the city resulted in police speaking to the people who had been involved and they were sent on their separate ways. A report of a possible impaired driver approaching Estevan on Highway 47 north resulted in police checking up on the driver and vehicle that was parked on an approach near the city. Their cursory investigation revealed that

the driver was tired and had stopped to rest, so no further action was required. The next stop for police was in the central part of the city, following up on a report of an intoxicated male in the area. As a result, a 21-year-old man was arrested for being intoxicated in public and was transported to cells where he spent the rest of the night. The next call to police came from a north central gas station/convenience store regarding a disturbance in progress. The issue was resolved by police and the subjects involved in the dispute were sent on their way. During the course of the evening, police issued several Traffic Safety Act tickets for such things as speeding, driving unregistered vehicles and possessing improper driver’s licences.

No foul play in Benson death Midale Pioneer Echoes rescheduled Estevan RCMP say the person found dead Thursday morning in the village of Benson passed away from natural causes. Officers were called to Benson at 4:30 a.m. after a resident found an unresponsive 63-year-old

man lying on the road outside of his house. EMS attended the scene but were unable to revive the man. The local coroner, members of the Regina Major Crimes Unit and Yorkton Ident Unit were also called to Benson to

conduct an investigation. It was ultimately determined that there was no foul play and the man had died from natural causes. The family of the victim has been notified but the name of the deceased has not been released.

The show had to be postponed earlier, but it’s a definite green light for Aug. 18 and 19 according to organizers of the Pioneer Echoes event in the town of Midale. The event co-ordinators had originally planned to stage the annual salute to

pioneers on July 28 and 29, but there weren’t enough volunteers available on those two days to make happen, so organizers turned to another date that proved to be more popular. The two-day schedule put together by the Souris

Valley Antique Association will feature antique farm equipment in action at the museum grounds across the tracks at the pioneer village. There will be old-time threshing demonstrations plus a parade of antique equipment on each of the two days. “We also expect to have a petting zoo on site,” said John New one of the organizers, who added that basic camping sites are available for those wishing to park a trailer or RV for the weekend. Activities will include a flea market within the pioneer village as well as a Sunday morning church service in the old church located in the village. Some of the volunteers will get into the spirit with old-time dress and antique and classic cars will be on display along with the ancient farm equipment. Concession services will be available both days and there will be demonstrations of butter making and other tests of old-time skills. The pioneer museum on Main Street in Midale will be the scene for opening activities both days since it will be the site for the pancake breakfasts from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far we have received clear indication that water is a key element and a priority issue and we made it a major issue in our past campaign.â&#x20AC;?

Ken Cheveldayoff, minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority

Big changes ahead for water management in Sask. The provincial government has launched a bold initiative that will include major changes to the way in which water is managed in Saskatchewan. The implementation of the comprehensive water management plan will roll out more completely this fall, said Ken Cheveldayoff, minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority in speaking with The Mercury July 27. The process will integrate activities that are necessary for the protection as well as management of water that sits in or flows through Saskatchewan. A first round of public consultation did not reveal any unexpected elements for discussion, the minister said, and a second phase of talks will be completed this summer with a 25-year Saskatchewan water security plan being unveiled in the fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far we have received clear indication that water is a key element and a priority issue and we

Ken Cheveldayoff made it a major issue in our past campaign,â&#x20AC;? said Cheveldayoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it comes to fl ood or drought, people want to be able to deal with the problem with

one nimble agency and so we want to ensure them that this is possible,â&#x20AC;? the minister added. The plan is ambitious enough to include a whole new Crown corporation

that will be known as Integrated Water Saskatchewan that will work as a Treasury Board entity. With its arrival, the minister suggested that the current watershed authority may well cease to exist in favour of the new corporation with an expanded mandate. The changes will not evolve into job losses for watershed authority personnel or at other ministries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ambitious plan, but it needs to be for the long-term success of water management. It was time to take some action,â&#x20AC;? Cheveldayoff said. Integrated Water Saskatchewan will bring together the best that the watershed authority had along with select personnel from such ministries as the Environment and Health, to name a couple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will take individuals from these other groups and there will be substantial changes as we bring in more expertise for water management. Integrated Water Saskatchewan will be the central

Saskatchewan gets positive credit rating One of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest credit rating services is apparently quite high on Saskatchewan. In a press release, the government announced that Moodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Investors Services has changed the outlook on Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit rating to Aa1 (positive) from Aa1 (stable). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The change in the outlook for Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aa1 rating reflects

the ongoing improvement in the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial position that is expected to continue,â&#x20AC;? the agency said. The news was welcomed by Deputy Premier and Finance Minister Ken Krawetz who said that the change confirms the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improving fiscal and financial position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saskatchewan continues to move in the right direction,â&#x20AC;? Krawetz said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the volatile world economy provides challenges, Saskatchewan continues to outperform other provinces and countries that are running deficits and adding billions of dollars of debt. Last year the province paid down government debt by $327.6 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This change in outlook is further independent confi rmation of the

strength of Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. This is particularly noteworthy when many credit ratings are being downgraded worldwide.â&#x20AC;? Ratings by firms such as Moodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Investors Services, a major credit rating agency in the international financial community, influence the cost that a government pays on borrowed funds.

agency for anything to do with water. One call will do it from that point on. The public wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be dealing with numerous agencies if the issue is water,â&#x20AC;? the Saskatoon Silver Springs MLA said. The new agenda will include anything that involves water, even cottage or park development around reservoirs or irrigation and/or drainage plans for the agriculture sector and so on. The more detailed plans for this consolidation of government core water management personnel and expertise will be rolled out in the fall, he said. The plan is to increase water management capacity while providing individuals and businesses with this single point of contact and avoid the current overlapping of other ministries and agencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saskatchewan is a province of 100,000 lakes and rivers and stewardship is paramount during this period of unprecedented population and economic

growth,â&#x20AC;? said Cheveldayoff. The strategic 25-year water security plan will become a part of the future announcement, although the main body of the document for public consumption can be found online (www.swa.ca). Anyone wishing to submit suggestions or raise concerns or questions after reading the plan, is invited to submit feedback up to Aug. 31. The move toward a singular agency to manage water was welcomed by the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM). President Dave Marit said SARM had called on the government to bring the management of water under one roof earlier, so his organization was encouraged by this announcement and they looked forward to participating in the consultation. After reviewing the 25-year water security plan, residents and stakeholders are invited to provide feedback directly to the watershed authority at 25yearplan@swa.ca

Companies are investing in our province for the long term and economic forecasters are putting Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Commodity prices on the natural gas side of things have had a big impact on activity levels so far this year,â&#x20AC;?

Natural gas prices prompt forecast change Slumping natural gas prices have prompted the Petroleum Services Association of Canada to amend its drilling forecast for 2012. PSAC released its third quarter forecast Monday which predicts a decrease in Canadian drilling activity levels. In April, PSAC revised the 2012 forecast to a total of 13,150 wells drilled (rig released) across Canada, representing a three per cent increase in

total wells drilled compared to 2011. PSAC is now forecasting a decrease to 12,500 wells for 2012, down 650 wells from April. This amounts to a decrease of three per cent over 2011 in total wells drilled (rig released) across Canada. In a press release, PSAC said it is basing its updated 2012 forecast on average natural gas prices of C$2.50/mcf (AECO) and crude oil prices of US$90/ barrel (WTI).

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Commodity prices on the natural gas side of things have had a big impact on activity levels so far this year,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Salkeld, president of PSAC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As well, activity has been impacted by key shifts in the global economy including the European debt crisis and the decline in demand coming from Asia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are cautiously optimistic about activity levels staying at or around

the 2011 well count, with activity more weighted towards liquids, rich gas and oil,â&#x20AC;? added Salkeld. â&#x20AC;&#x153;PSAC member companies continue to be busy and the demand for their services in western Canada seems to have steadied following a late breakup and some persistent wet weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our forecast update includes positive numbers with regards to efficiency in the patch.

On a provincial basis for 2012, PSAC now forecasts the greatest increase in well count to take place in Manitoba with 663 wells, an increase of 14 per cent over 2011 numbers.

Be aware of carbon monoxide risks SaskPower is reminding customers of ways they can protect themselves from carbon monoxide in their homes and businesses, in light of several recent incidents in the province involving the deadly gas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fi rst thing customers should do is make sure any gas appliances like water heaters or ranges are serviced and operating

properly,â&#x20AC;? said Douglas Hird, senior engineer of Gas Codes and Standards for SaskPower in a press release issued by the company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In two recent incidents, portable air conditioning units were installed incorrectly, so there was a continuous exhaust of the warm air to the outside without an air pipe to bring in fresh air.â&#x20AC;?

This condition is known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;depressurizationâ&#x20AC;? and occurs when inside air is exhausted faster than outside fresh air can come in. Excessive depressurization will cause a natural draft water heater to backdraft, spilling carbon monoxide into the home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Natural draft water heaters and furnaces need

sufficient fresh air,â&#x20AC;? said Hird. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Customers need to make sure there is a properly functioning fresh air intake installed. Fresh air intakes can become clogged or they are sometimes blocked by homeowners who are unaware of their important purpose.â&#x20AC;? To help alert customers to the presence of carbon monoxide, SaskPower

Federal govâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t announces tax relief for natural disasters The federal government has announced it will offer somewhat of a reprieve to Canadians hit by a natural disaster. Gail Shea, minister of National Revenue, announced on Monday that Canadians who have been affected by devastating weather conditions can apply for relief from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) if they are having difficulty meeting their tax obligations because of extreme weather events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our government understands that severe weather events can prevent Canadians from meeting their tax obligations. Recently, Canadians from several regions, including British Columbia, the Yukon, and Saskatchewan, have had to rebuild because of events such as flooding and severe wind,â&#x20AC;? said Shea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The taxpayer relief provisions ensure that all Canadians receive fair tax treatment, while they are recovering from the damage resulting from natural catastrophes.â&#x20AC;? All Canadians have access to the CRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxpayer relief measures and will be considered for relief if they miss a payment or filing deadline because their lives were disrupted by uncontrollable weather events,

including forest fires caused by lightning strikes, tornadoes, flooding, landslides and hurricanes. The taxpayer relief provisions use a balanced approach to help taxpayers to resolve tax issues that arise through no fault of their own. Under these provisions, any taxpayer can apply to the CRA to have interest and/or penal-

ties waived or cancelled in situations where they are unable to file a tax return and/or make a payment on time due to a natural disaster or other extraordinary circumstances beyond their control. Taxpayers must submit their request in writing using form RC4288, Request for Taxpayer Relief. The CRA will consider these requests on a case-by-

Midale

case basis. Affected taxpayers who have questions or concerns about the CRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxpayer relief provisions can access additional information on the CRA website at www. cra.gc.ca/taxpayerrelief or they can call the CRA at 1-800-959-8281. Business owners and self-employed individuals can call the CRA at 1-800-959-5525.

recommends the installation of carbon monoxide detectors. Look for a detector that is listed with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or the Underwriters Laboratory of Canada (ULC). Check the expiry date on detectors as they need to be replaced periodically. While detectors are a good safety backup, they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

a proper substitute for regular maintenance of home heating and cooling equipment. SaskPower has developed a series of safety brochures that contain information about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. This information is available at all SaskPower offices or online at saskpower.com/safety.

Twins held winless at provincials A miserable season for the Southeast Legacy Twins ended in much the same fashion on the weekend, as the baseball club crashed out of the provincial midget AAA championship in Saskatoon with an 0-3 record. The Twins, who finished last in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League at 6-26, lost their opener 13-3 to the Regina Mets on Friday night. On Saturday, they lost 7-4 to the Regina Athletics in the afternoon and 12-6 to the Saskatoon Giants that evening. The Twins committed 15 errors in three games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a tough weekend,â&#x20AC;? said Twins head coach Tom Copeland. In 2011, the Twins finished last in the SPBL but proceeded to reach the semifinals at provincials. Not so this time around. In Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss to the Mets, which didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start until 9:45 p.m., the Twins scored all three of their runs in the fifth inning. But the Mets had a 10-0 lead by that point. Regina scored three runs in the first inning, two in the second and five in the fourth. They later added three more in the sixth inning, at which point the game was called. Twins starter Austin Orsted got hit hard, allowing 10 runs (six earned) on eight hits in three and twothirds innings. He did strike out six batters. Four players had one hit apiece for the Twins, including Carver Krafchuk,

(File Photo) who doubled in a run and later scored. Josh Ferris and John Gaab also crossed the plate. Paul Vogelsang led the Mets, hitting 2-for-3 with two runs batted in. Mets starter Nathan Haroldson shut down the Twins, throwing three and two-thirds of no-hit ball. The Twins made six errors in the Saturday morning loss to the Athletics, and Copeland said that was primarily what sunk them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two key errors lost that game. We should have won that game and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? he said. The biggest one came in the fourth inning when,

with two outs and the bases loaded, Athletics star Justin Schulz hit a fly ball to right field that was dropped by Nolan Axten. When the dust settled, all three baserunners had scored and Schulz was standing on third base. He would also score in the inning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We held (Schulz) down pretty good and when you hold him down, you should win the ball game,â&#x20AC;? said Copeland. The Twins had been leading 4-3 after scoring two runs in the top of the fourth. Jolan Lingelbach had three RBI for the Twins, including a two-run single

in the fourth. Southeast starter Justin Chuckry worked three and two-thirds innings, allowing seven runs (only one of them earned) on three hits, five walks and five strikeouts. In the loss to the Giants Saturday night, Saskatoon scored three runs in the first inning and took a 7-2 lead after three en route to the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the third game, the kids were pretty deflated because there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much chance we were going to keep going (in the tournament),â&#x20AC;? said Copeland. The Twins scored two runs in the second inning,

three in the fourth and one more in the sixth. Josh Ferris and Lucas Lafrentz each drove in a pair of runs for the Twins. Starter James Giroux was roughed up, allowing seven runs (five earned) on nine hits in two and a third innings. Mackenzie Lamontagne and Garret Fitzpatrick came on in relief. Copeland said the SPBL was very strong this season and that the level of competition exposed his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weaknesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ability to hit in our league is absolutely tremendous. When you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the best pitching staff in the world, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

make a lot of errors.â&#x20AC;? Copeland said there were some promising individual performances during the season, despite the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woeful showing, singling out John Gaab, Tanner Odgers and Jolan Lingelbach. He added that the team will look to build around rookies Krafchuk, Fitzpatrick and Giroux in the future. Giroux led the team in innings pitched this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see a lot in Carver Krafchukâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. We really, really like him,â&#x20AC;? Copeland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those three kids should be a cornerstone of everything weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we had a lot of promise coming into the season, but once we got into a losing streak, it was pretty much impossible to get out of that funk.â&#x20AC;? Copeland said the strength of the bantam AA program in Estevan bodes well for the Twins future, but added that the results are unpredictable when rookies try to integrate themselves in the SPBL. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do we do going forward? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a pretty good (group) coming through the system, with our bantam team winning provincials. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big difference between AA ball and AAA.â&#x20AC;? Axten is the only player graduating from the midget ranks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that these kids arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vying for a job (after) 11 wins in two seasons,â&#x20AC;? Copeland said.

Blackstock fourth at senior championship Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scott Blackstock finished in fourth place at the Saskatchewan senior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf championship held in Melfort last week. Blackstock shot rounds of 76, 73 and 74 for a 54-hole total of 223 at the tournament, which wrapped up July 25 at the Melfort Golf and Country Club. Blackstock said he was happy with his showing in his first provincial senior championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably a little better than I might have been anticipating. I played how I thought I could play,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was steady throughout. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the lack of birdies,â&#x20AC;? he added, noting that he only made three in as many days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hit the ball steady, but normally I would have more birdies than I had.â&#x20AC;? Blackstock climbed the leaderboard throughout

the tournament, sitting in a tie for 10th after the first round and sixth after the second. Despite finishing fourth, Blackstock was 15 strokes behind winner Colin Coben of Delisle, as there was a large spread at the top. Coben ran away with the title, finishing at 8-under, nine strokes ahead of Prince Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Stewart and Saskatoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s George Janson. Blackstock finished at 7-over, edging three other golfers by one stroke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was unusual that there was that much of a spread,â&#x20AC;? said Blackstock, adding that he felt the length of the course kept scores high. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The golf course played a little long. It was awful, awful wet.â&#x20AC;? The second round of the tournament on July 24 was beset by a rain delay that lasted three and a half hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a lot of fun. The golf course was in

great shape, other than being a little damp,â&#x20AC;? Blackstock said. By finishing fourth, he earned a quota spot for the Canadian senior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship held Aug. 28-31 in Mirabel, Que. The quota spot means he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the Saskatchewan team, but will be entered in the individual competition if he chooses to make the trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m invited to go and I can go, (but) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still deciding if I am going to

go,â&#x20AC;? he said. Blackstock has played at four national mid-amateur championships in the past. Meanwhile, Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pat Murphy finished in a tie for 20th at the provincial senior tournament. He shot a 75 on the first day, his lowest round of the championship, before firing 80 and 83 on the last two days for a total of 238, or 22-over. Murphy finished 11th at the event in 2011.

Baseball team starts strong Many local athletes were active on the first day of competition at the Saskatchewan Summer Games in Meadow Lake on Monday, as baseball and swimming were two of the main sports being contested. The South East baseball team started perfect, defeating South West 9-2 in the morning and edging Parkland Valley 5-4 in the afternoon. All six members of the Estevan Haulers named to the team played in both games. Tribuneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Hutt led South East in the opener, hitting 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk. Colton Gingras of Estevan was 3-for-4 with two singles

and a double. Mitchel Clark (Estevan), Carson Perkins (Bienfait), Jesse Mack (Macoun) and Preston Hutt (Lampman) saw action in both games. The South East baseball team was scheduled to close out the round-robin Tuesday morning against Saskatoon before playing in the semifinals last night. The final is today. Meanwhile, several local swimmers earned medals on Monday. Abbie Reich, Lanelle Bilokraly and Oxbowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lindsey McNab were all part of the South East team that won gold in the 4x50 metre freestyle relay for girls aged 13-14.

Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Samuel Beahm and Oxbowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carter MacFarlane and Morgan MacFarlane were on the relay team that won gold in the 4x50 metre freestyle for 14-15 boys. Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Racquelle Gibbons and Oxbowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Janissa Cooley were on the silver-winning team in the 4x50 metre freestyle relay for 11-12 girls. Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zachary Beahm and Colin Sutter were part of the South East foursome that earned bronze in the same event for 12-13 boys. Reich placed fourth in the 50-metre breaststroke for 13-14 girls, and Samuel Beahm was fourth in the 200-metre freestyle for 14-

15 boys, and Gibbons was fifth in the same event for 11-12 girls. Gibbons also finished eighth in the 50-metre breaststroke and Sutter was 10th in the same event for 12-13 boys. Several Oxbow swimmers reached finals as well. McNab, who was the flagbearer for South East, won gold in the 50-metre breaststroke for 13-14 girls. She was also fourth in the 200-metre freestyle final. Morgan MacFarlane was fourth in the 100-metre backstroke for 14-15 boys. Cooley finished fourth in the 50-metre breaststroke for 11-12 girls, while Carter MacFarlane was fifth in that event for 14-15 boys.

This summer, the 20-year-old decided he needed to continue playing at a high level in order to come back strong in the fall. After spending last summer playing senior ball with the Estevan Tower Wolves, Keating caught on with the WMBLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Weyburn Beavers this time around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been good and one of the reasons I wanted to play this summer was so I could keep playing at a good level of competition to hopefully get better for my junior year,â&#x20AC;? Keating said Monday, one day before the Beavers (19-25) were set to begin the WMBL playoffs against the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top team, the Regina Red Sox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely the favourite, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a whole lot of pressure on us and hopefully we can take a couple from them and move on to the next round,â&#x20AC;? he added. Keating appeared in 11 games this summer, including six starts, posting a record of 2-2. He finished the regular season with 38 innings pitched, carrying an earned run average of 4.74 and a walks and hits per innings pitched ratio of 1.47. Both of his wins took place in a span of five days recently. He led the Beavers to a 7-4 win over the Okotoks Dawgs on July 20, and five days later he threw a gem in a 2-0 victory over

the Red Sox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was really nice. My last two starts have been pretty decent, so hopefully I can keep that going into the playoffs now,â&#x20AC;? said Keating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a fairly decent year so far here and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m enjoying myself ... I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain so far. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really good for me.â&#x20AC;? Keating said the calibre of play in the WMBL is close to what he faces in South Dakota, which helps him continue to develop as he prepares to enter his third year in university ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really similar. There are a few of the guys even from our conference that I play in college, playing here too. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little better hitting here, I find. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help me a lot going to school this year. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m almost up to 40 innings this summer.â&#x20AC;? Keating has been used entirely as a reliever with the Wolves, making 25 appearances over the last two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took me a little bit to get used to, but now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fairly comfortable starting or relieving, whatever is needed,â&#x20AC;? he said. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping that his starting experience with the Beavers might give him a shot at the rotation when he returns to Aberdeen, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what will happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to say. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made any starts there yet, but now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been starting here this summer and not doing too bad, I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to see how it goes down there.â&#x20AC;?

Turnbull wins feature in Mandan There were no races at Estevan Motor Speedway on the weekend, but local driver Aaron Turnbull found success south of the border. The Estevan native drove back-to-back nights at Dacotah Speedway in Mandan on Friday and Saturday. Turnbull won the modified feature on Saturday, holding off Mark Dahl of Bismarck to take the checkered flag. A handful of familiar opponents from the Dakota Classic Modified Tour rounded out the top five. Hank Berry of Sidney, Mont., who won the Estevan stop on the mod tour, was third, followed by Steven Pfeifer of Minot and Shawn Strand of Mandan. Turnbull finished sixth

late model class both nights. He finished fifth on Friday and ninth on Saturday. Racing action at Estevan Motor Speedway resumes on Friday with a prolonged program, beginning with feature races from the July 21 program that was shortened by weather events.

Blaine Durward of Trenton, N.D. leads the hobby stock standings entering Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s races, with 145 points. Stoughtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gary Goudy Sr. is six points back, and there is a threeway tie for third place with Weyburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rod Pickering, Stoughtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gary Goudy Jr. and Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dustin Byler all having 133 points. The modified and stock car standings have not changed since the trackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season opener on June 29, as that program was the only one to date that counts for season points. Minotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spencer Wilson leads the mod standings and Joe Flory sits atop the stock car points list, both with 40 points.

Two weeks of thrill and inspiration The Olympics have a strange kind of power. Those five rings, and the things they represent, can compel us to spend hours watching athletes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of, from countries we often know little about, perform in sports weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d normally never watch. Sunday afternoon was one of those moments. I was watching menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weightlifting, the clean and jerk portion of the 56-kilogram division. It was the last round, and the next weightlifter was a Mexican named Jose Lino Montes Gongora. He tried to lift roughly 160 kilograms, but only a couple of seconds into the lift, he let the weights drop to the floor. He was beaten. And yet there was a big grin on his face, and as he left the area to get a hug from his trainer, he seemed to be genuinely happy despite finishing sixth. I thought to myself, how is it possible to train for four years, to dedicate so much of your life to a singular goal, probably neglecting other parts of your life in the process, and then let it roll off your back when you hit your breaking point and walk out without a hunk of metal? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the answer to that, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not about to sum up the meaning of the Olympics in 400 words either because I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But I know this: we put so much emphasis on medals at the Olympics. We keep a constant eye on the medal count. We watch Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contenders and tend to forget about the rest. We whine about the slow start Canada got off to, and how so-and-so didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a medal and let us down. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m one of the worst for that. But we forget just how much of an accomplish-

ment it is to get here. The undying commitment, the doubts, the things that fall by the wayside. For many, just getting to this point and competing against the very best in the world is a gold medal in itself. This is one situation where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to be happy with the team jacket. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK not to give it everything you have at the Games. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference between happy and satisfied. But there are so many incredible experiences at the Olympics and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to soak it all up and enjoy the ride. Who could forget the reaction of Canadian swimmer Tera Van Beilen on Sunday after she found out she would have to compete in a swim-off after tying a Jamaican swimmer for the last spot in the 100-metre breaststroke final? It took a few moments to digest the news, but Van Beilen was thrilled for another chance to make the final after barely even getting to the semis. She lost that swimoff to Alia Atkinson, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a unique experience that will drive her to push herself further in the years ahead. Van Beilen is 19. Montes, the Mexican weightlifter, is 23. In all likelihood, their Olympic careers are just beginning. Meanwhile, Canada earned its first medal of the Games on Sunday, a bronze medal by Emilie Heymans and Jennifer Abel in the three-metre springboard synchronized diving event. Heymans has been nothing if not dependable for Canada over the last 12 years, a steady threat who has earned medals at four consecutive Olympiads, the first Canadian to do that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe

Hear Me Out Heymans is now the grizzled veteran. I remember when she made her debut in Sydney in 2000, winning silver as an 18-year-old. Now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing the torch to her partner, Abel, who at age 20 is already competing at her second Olympics. Staying in the pool, swimming has captured a lot of the focus in the first few days in London, particularly the American duo of Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps. Lochte has had his ups and downs, blowing away the field in a terrifying display in the 400-metre individual medley final on Saturday, then being overtaken in the final leg of the 4x100-metre freestyle relay on Sunday, dropping his team to silver. With Phelps, meanwhile, the big question is whether heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still got it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;? being the form that allowed him to win 14 gold medals in the last two Olympiads, including eight in Beijing. Phelps finished fourth in that IM final after grabbing the last berth out of the semis. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just happy to see that the Canadian swimming team appears to be on its way up. I grew up watching the likes of Curtis Myden, Joanne Malar and Marianne Limpert represent Canada, and while it certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a golden age for the sport in our country, you at least knew that our

swimmers would be competitive. Our program went into decline in the last decade though, at least at the Olympics. None of our swimmers won a medal in Athens in 2004, and we earned only one in Beijing, that being a bronze medal for Ryan Cochrane that was completely unexpected. Our swimmers likely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up with much more than that this time around, but the promise is there. Van Beilen and Brittany MacLean, who finished

festivities. Boyle made extensive use of the staggering library of hit music produced by the Brits over the decades, and the performance of the hymn Abide With Me by Scottish singer Emeli Sande was incredible, on par with k.d. langâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerful rendition of Hallelujah at the Vancouver opening ceremony. I have no qualms about saying the ceremony was better than ours. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget, we put Wayne Gretzky in the back of a pickup truck with a broken headlight. In the rain.

On a closing note, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard a few criticisms of the opening ceremony created by British filmmaker Danny Boyle and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering why. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It began with a rolling hillside scene that had the British Isles written all over it. After that was an industrial scene with towering smokestacks, a nod to the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former status as a world superpower. The scene with the hospital beds, paying homage to the beloved National Health Service, was well-done, and of course millions of people were thrilled to see Mr. Bean and James Bond involved in the

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

“It’s all about the rice. The actual sushi chefs have to train for years before they perfect the rice.” B8

– Jill Kergen Adult Program Co-ordinator

• Carpet • Linoleum • Laminate • Hardwood • Ceramic Tiles • Paint • Window Coverings • Granite Professional Installations - Free Estimates 104 - Hwy. 47 South ESTEVAN, SK 634-5588 Bay #1 - Hwy. 13 CARLYLE, SK Ph: 453-2519

Chantelle Dubreuil, organizes her sushi fixings during the Estevan Public Library’s sushi workshop on July 26.

Sushi workshop teaches the art of the roll The Japanese sushi chef may not touch fish for years before becoming a master, but the group who dabbled in sushi making at the library last week were able to get their hands dirty right away. That’s how things work when you’re learning something in a one-hour session, even though there was no fish on the ingredients table. Sushi chefs must be licensed in order to prepare certain kinds of the food like fugu, which can lead to poisoning if not done properly. There was no risk of poisoning at the Estevan Public Library, as Jill Kergen, the adult program coordinator at the library who organized the event, said they weren’t using any raw fish. “A lot of people think sushi is just rice and raw fish,” she told the group of about 10, but noted, “we’re not going to be using any raw fish today.” Kergen said the most important thing that makes sushi, sushi is the vinegared rice followed by a topping that may or may not include fish. For those who are organizing a party and looking to serve sushi, she noted that it’s the rice that will really bring the appetizers together. “I would recommend the sushi rice. The good, short-grain sushi rice. It’s all about the rice. The actual sushi chefs have to train for years before they perfect the rice, and they’re not allowed to cut any fish or anything.” She compared sticky rice with the sushi rice and because the sushi rice grains are smaller, it’s stickier. “It cuts much nicer because the grains don’t come

apart when you try to cut it into pieces.” The attendees on July 26 made several different kinds of sushi with ingredients like crab, avocado and cucumbers, which were the toppings on hand. They made maki rolls, which are different from the nigiri sushi that is more of a ball. They also rolled both futomaki, with seaweed on the outside, and uramaki, a more Americanized version of sushi. It’s an inside-out roll where the rice acts as the outer shell and is more appealing to many westerners. They also made temaki style sushi, which looks more like a taco. “You just fold it up like a fajita, so if you’re having a party you could put all the ingredients out, and everyone can roll their own.” California rolls are one of the most popular styles in Canada, so for the evening’s workshop Kergen said they would be learning more about different ways of rolling, rather than different ingredients. “If you actually learn how to roll it, you can pretty much put anything in there,” she said, adding that it takes a couple tries just get it sticking together. Important tools are the bamboo rolling mat, and some kind of saran wrap or a Ziploc bag. A bowl of vinegared water is also important to dip your fingers into because the rice will stick to your hands. “I’ve always been kind of a sushi buff, so I like it,” said Kergen, noting, “the library has done (a sushi workshop) in the past and it went over really well. Food programs tend to (be) more popular than other programs here, especially in the summer.”

OBITUARIES

Sam Dzuba Sam Dzuba passed away on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 in Estevan at the age of 90 years. Sam was the youngest of seven children of Ukrainian immigrants, Dmytro and Annie Dzuba. His three older siblings, Pete, Edna and Bill were also born in the Ukraine before the family moved to Canada 1913. Then, John, Mary, Mike and Sam were born in Canada. Sam was the last surviving member of that family and so now the Dzuba name continues on in the grandsons and their families. The Dzuba family lived most of their life in Dzubaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Valley, near the Taylorton mine site. Right from a young boy, coal mining was an integral part of life for Sam. His father was a coal miner so Sam left Taylorton School with only a few years of education to work alongside his father in the mines. He started out helping his dad with timbering in Taylorton mine. As he grew older, he continued to work alongside his dad and brothers at the same mine. He moved on to work in other underground mines in the area - Western Dominion Mine and Banks Mine until he started at the Dominion Briquette and Chemical in 1945. There also were years when the demand for coal was low and mining jobs were scarce, where he would work threshing in the fall for farmers. He also worked with his dad in various projects in the area, like working on the PFRA fence and digging water pipelines. He applied to go to war, but was denied because, by that time, coal was needed for the war effort and the country needed coal miners. At the Briquette Plant, Sam started out as a gasman that ran the carbonizers and he played a big role in the minersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union in trying to get better contracts for the employees of the Briquette Plant. Then he moved into foremanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position, and finally, worked as superintendent of the Char Division of Luscar Coal. He retired in 1983 but continued to consult for a couple of years after that. Sam married Mary Kolenz in 1944 and their family began soon after. They had five children in all - Dwain, Valery, Lee, Jack and Dallas. Sam and Mary lived for a short while with Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, and then moved to live at the Taylorton Store. Next they lived at the Banksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mine and then the Briquette Plant town site. They moved to various houses there, until 1965, when they bought the property on the south side of Bienfait and built the house that Sam and Mary continued to live in until their passing. They enjoyed 67 years of married life before Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing. Intense labour was the order of the day. Sam grew up working hard, continuing to do so throughout life. He built up the acreage by Bienfait from next to nothing, to a well-maintained property with many buildings and trees. He had help - his boys. He, in turn, though, helped each of his boys build their own homes. On the lighter side of life, Sam enjoyed hunting and fishing throughout his life. Sam hunted birds and deer to provide for the family as well as for enjoyment. Sam and Mary would often take their kids to Roche Percee Park for picnics. They had a cabin at Kenosee Lake for several years, which was a retreat and a place for the family to enjoy. Later in life he and Mary travelled to various lakes in northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba for camping and fishing. He appreciated the scenery of the Souris Valley and enjoyed collecting history of the valley and coal mining in the area. He did not like too much fuss over special events, but tolerated the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs to celebrate events; most recently his 90th birthday last January. Throughout the years, he and Mary often gathered with many family members for a rousing game of cards, mostly playing Hola. He enjoyed watching July 1st parades, listening to the Carter Family and other old-time music, seeing the grandchildren and keeping up with their lives. Sam had a passion for vehicles. Imagine, through the years, where Sam started with a few old Model As and Ts, to where he bought his first new car, a 1958 Pontiac, and many more cars, trucks, campers to follow. He also had snowmobiles and later, quads, which he rode until very recently. With Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing, we have now lost a part of the history of the coal mining in this area, but we have also lost a man who worked hard to make a living and a good life for his family. He meant something special to each one of us in our own way. Whether it was to teach us how to build or fix, how to hunt or fish, or how to appreciate life and do our best, Sam is in a little bit of each of us. Sam is survived by sons, Dwain (Pat), Roche Percee; Lee (Bernice), Estevan; Jack, Bienfait; Dallas (Lori), Bienfait and daughter, Valery (George) Kirbyson, Surrey, B.C.; 14 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by wife, Mary; parents, Dmytro and Annie Dzuba; brothers, Peter, Bill, John, and Mike; sisters, Edna Fedyk and Mary Oszust; daughter-in-law, Janet Dzuba. Funeral Service was held at 2:00 p.m. on July 20, 2012 at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, Estevan with Rev. Brenna Nickel officiating. Interment followed in the Bienfait Cemetery. If friends so desire donations may be given to the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency in memory of Sam Dzuba. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Hall Funeral Services, Estevan.

Thank you The family would like to thank Dr. Sheikh and the staff of St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital for Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care during his stay at the hospital. Thank you to the staff of Hall Funeral Services and Reverend Brenna Nickel of St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church for their support during this difficult time. Thank you to all those who helped at the Bienfait Legion for the lovely luncheon. We also appreciate all the thoughtful expressions of sympathy and support from friends and relatives. - From the family of Sam Dzuba

Province to look at rural emergency centres The provincial government has announced it will join a handful of other provinces in looking at ways to improve rural health care. In a press release, the government announced that as part of its commitment to strengthen health care in rural Saskatchewan, Minister responsible for Rural and Remote Health Randy Weekes said that the province is exploring the implementation of Collaborative Emergency Centres (CECs) in the province as an innovative approach to provide emergency and primary health care. Weekes was in Nova Scotia last week where he toured collaborative emergency centres to gain a firsthand perspective on their operations and applicability in Saskatchewan. Weekes

was accompanied by former Estevan resident Dr. Vino Padayachee who is now the CEO of the Saskatchewan Medical Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very excited to learn about the potential the collaborative emergency centre model holds for Saskatchewan as a way to address the challenges of health care delivery in rural and remote communities,â&#x20AC;? Weekes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Interest in this model of care has been steadily growing over the past months, and we are optimistic the CECs could benefit Saskatchewan residents. I am particularly pleased Dr. Padayachee with the SMA was able to join me and I look forward to working closely with other health care providers as we consider this new team-based approach to care.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an opportunity for Saskatchewan physicians to study ideas that are being deployed in other parts of the country and then look at the possibility of adapting and implementing them in similar settings in our province,â&#x20AC;? SMA president Dr. Janet Shannon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope these ideas will put us on the path to improving the patientfirst model of care and we look forward to hearing back from Dr. Padayachee to learn how collaborative emergency care can be applied in Saskatchewan.â&#x20AC;? Delegates from Nova Scotia will be in Saskatchewan this fall to present to a broad audience, including health care and municipal stakeholders, and share their first hand experience with this innovative approach to

health care. Collaborative emergency centres are designed to enhance access to high quality, comprehensive primary care that is capable of dealing with unexpected illness or injury in a timely fashion. Nova Scotia has been implementing this model in communities where maintaining 24/7 emergency service is difficult. CECs are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are staffed by a primary health care team during the day and a team that includes a nurse and a paramedic, with physician oversight through the emergency health system, during the night. The benefits of the CEC model include: improved access, shorter waiting lists, same day appointments, reducing number

of visits to emergency rooms and increased patient satisfaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Collaborative emergency centres are an innovative, made in Nova Scotia approach to providing emergency care in Nova Scotia,â&#x20AC;? Nova Scotia Health and Wellness Minister David Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased Saskatchewan has decided to explore our model to provide better care sooner to residents in rural and remote parts of their province.â&#x20AC;? Adapting the elements of Nova Scotiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaborative emergency centre model is one of the recommendations of the first report of the Health Care Innovation Working Group, led by Pre-

miers Brad Wall and Robert Ghiz. The report was released last week at the Council of the Federation meeting in Halifax. This innovative way of delivering health care also aligns with Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently announced initiative to strengthen its primary health care system. The goal of the initiative is achieving a primary health care model that is sustainable, offers a superior patient experience and ensures better access to services.
