Sun Country employee numbers shifting The good news still managed to dominate the staffing situation at the Sun Country Health Region during the past two months, but continuing to completely fill all 2,300 employment positions remains a fluid situation in this corner of the province. In a staffing report filed with the Sun Country board of directors last week, it was noted that two registered nurses were hired while six RNs tendered resignations. This reversed a previous trend noted in summer and fall reports that showed more nursing hires than departures. One dietitian and two out-of-scope positions were filled in a period that

stretched from mid-October to mid-November, but at the same time the region lost three licensed practical nurses and one speech language pathologist. On the brighter side, the report stated that five medical students are currently studying with financial assistance provided by Sun Country with the expectation that they will assume practice in the region upon graduation. There was also a newly created administrative position that was filled within the past couple of months when Chris McKee was appointed executive director of the new Kaizen Promotion Office, which will be responsible for designing,

planning and deploying the Lean (efficiency) system throughout the region. The Lean program enables groups to reorganize operations and empowers staff to generate new methods to eliminate waste and refocus on patient care. On another front, CEO Marga Cugnet said the health region may be close

to hiring a vice-president of finance and corporate services, a position currently being filled on an interim basis by Pamela Haupstein. Cugnet noted that interviews had been conducted with candidates on the short list. Sun Country has awarded 39 bursaries since April of this year, with 25 of those being for people en-

rolled in training to become registered nurses, another one in a registered psychiatric nurse program and one in a nurse practitioner program. There is also one student in an occupational therapy training program and four more in medicine, one in emergency medical technician training and one primary care paramedic along with five emergency medical responders. In comparison, there had been 55 bursaries awarded in the previous year. The health region stated that they are continuing to offer clinical placements for students, primarily those in nursing programs, Shortages ⇢ A2

WEATHER & INDEX

The Town of Lampman has received an early Christmas present from the provincial government. It was announced last week that Lampman received the final payment for the flood protection efforts they had to undertake over the past couple of years after the community was threatened by a lake that had formed northwest of the town. According to a government press release, more

than $640,000 was paid to Lampman through the Emergency Flood Damage Reduction Program. The Town built a number of berms and a lift station to prevent flooding. “Lampman has been one of the hardest hit areas in the province as they continue to deal with these water-related issues,� Minister Responsible for the Water Security Agency Ken Cheveldayoff said. “It’s important for the people of

Saskatchewan to know that this government is here to take action so that our communities can continue to grow and prosper.� The release added that since 2011, the Water Security Agency has committed nearly $6 million to the Town of Lampman and the surrounding area to deal with flood protection and mitigation efforts as a result of the record amounts of precipitation in 2010 and 2011.

“Our town has been through a lot the last few years and we want to thank the provincial government for providing this funding to ensure our citizens are safe and secure,� Lampman Mayor Scott Greening said. In an interview with The Mercury, Town administrator Greg Wallin said the funding from the government covered 75 per cent of the berm and lift station, meaning Lampman is left with a bill in the $160,000

range. They are also on the hook for future operating costs. “It’s still a very expensive venture for a small community,â€? said Wallin who added they are talking to the province about decreasing their percentage to 10 per cent. “As far as operating, it just depends how much you have to pump and how much washes away each year.â€?

Estevan Mercury

Figures point to small population increase Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a big increase, but Estevan experienced a population jump in 2012 according to statistics collected by the provincial government. The province released the 2012 covered population statistics in late November, which showed that Estevan had 12,444 residents as of June 30. That is a slight increase over 2011 when the government said 12,335 people called Estevan home. The covered population numbers are a collection of all the people who have a Saskatchewan Health card in each community and RM. They are widely considered to be a more accurate reflection of a cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population than the national census, which was widely panned by civic officials from throughout the province. The last census pegged Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population at just 11,054 residents. When that report was released in May, City officials were quick

to say they felt it was low, adding their estimates were closer to the 12,300 mark, which was supported by the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tabulations. City manager Jim Puffalt said they were pleased to see the increase, even though it was a modest one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The activity shows that there are more people here,â&#x20AC;? Puffalt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We watch these figures quite closely. The census figures we think are inaccurate and only come out once every five years.â&#x20AC;? Although the increase is positive news, there is good reason to believe it would have been larger if there were a better supply of affordable housing in Estevan. Puffalt feels that situation will begin to improve in 2013 with 3 private developers working on projects. Among them is the Dominion Heights Phase three development, which is already underway in the north end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to have numbers available for people. All

three of the developments going next year should ensure that there is lots of single family and multi-family available.â&#x20AC;? The report also broke down the population by age groupings. Not surprisingly, the largest group was 25 to 29 with 1,026 people. The 30 to 34 group was second largest followed by the 45 to 49 group. As for other communities in the southeast, the numbers were decidedly mixed. Weyburn jumped from 11,257 in 2011 to 11,403 this year. Carnduff, North Portal, Lampman and Macoun were among those with slight increases. Bienfait, Midale, Oxbow and Alameda all had slight decreases. As a whole, the Sun Country Health Region experienced a population increase. In 2011 they had 56,529 people under their umbrella. That has jumped to 56,890 this year.

liative care in Weyburn. They have now returned to classroom work. The report added that there is also one nurse practitioner in training in Carlyle. On another front, Sun Country noted that it has become increasingly difficult to fill cook positions within the health region, as it has across the province. The

shortage appears to exist across the entire region and administration is examining the issue and might be in the position to offer financial assistance to employees who want to take some necessary cooking education classes to become qualified to fill the roles. A pay for performance plan, a new province-wide

system to ensure accountability from executive teams, has been implemented in Sun Country following the passing of a motion of support by the board of directors on Nov. 28. The program ties some of the leadership salaries to improvements made in efficiency projects as reported weekly during progress â&#x20AC;&#x153;wall walks.â&#x20AC;? The

and travelled southeast past Benson and pooled around Lampman, creating a lake that has become known as Lake Roy. Wallin, who is also the administrator for the RM of Browning, said while the situation in Lampman is under control, they still have major issues in the RM, which could worsen

with an average snowfall this winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all depends what happens this year,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still working on getting a price on pumping the water because the roads are still under water. It is still that high, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down low enough so that with the little bit of trench that we did dig, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not

If we get even close to an average snowfall, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be flooded again. The hope we have is with this little trench we dug, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any higher than it did at its highest peak before. We are still in a very serious situation.â&#x20AC;? Wallin said the ideal situation is to find a permanent solution, but he estimates that would likely cost in the millions of dollars, making it unfeasible for them and the other RMs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in an oilfield. The ground is full of pipelines and power lines. It would be very expensive to go underneath every one of those. Another option is running a permanent pipeline and pumping it and that is millions.â&#x20AC;? Wallin noted that RM of Browning and Town of Lampman have joined with eight other RMs in the impacted areas to form the Lake Roy Watershed Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just all sit down as a group to decide what we can do and how you can benefit (everyone). Right now, most emphasis is based here because we need to get rid of it, but a long-term plan would be to have something that would help every municipality along the way.â&#x20AC;?

Theory of a Deadman

Theory of a Deadman ready to rock Spectra Place There are precious few bands out there that give fans exactly what they expect, night in, night out. In the 11 years theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been together, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theory of a Deadman has become one of those bands. Known for delivering catchy, riff heavy songs that are great live, TOADM is one of North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best selling acts with four straight platinum albums in Canada and two in the United States. Estevan and area music fans will have the chance to experience the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound live Sunday night when they co-headline a show at Spectra Place with Big Wreck. The groups are about halfway through a cross-country tour that wraps up Dec. 18. For TOADM the final show in Vancouver will not

only mark the end of their current tour, but also the end of an 18-month stretch of performances in support of their latest album The Truth Isâ&#x20AC;Ś. Drummer Joey Dandeneau spoke to The Mercury prior to their show last Thursday in Hamilton and said they are enjoying the tour and the chance to share some of the workload with Big Wreck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kinda nice that in some of the shows that we are doing, Big Wreck is closing a few out here, which is nice for us so we can get off the stage earlier and get some proper rest so we can get through this run,â&#x20AC;? Dandeneau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out for a year and a half so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kinda (tired). But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been great otherwise, the crowds have been great and the turn-

outs have been great and I think both bands work well together musically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is definitely different; that is what separates Big Wreck and Theory of A Deadman is that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got two different styles of rock, but at the end of the night itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still big fat drums, screaming guitars and lots of vocals. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a full night of true Canadian rock.â&#x20AC;? Although they are one of those bands that has a vocal group of critics, TOADM has an equally strong throng of supporters who appreciate the fact the band delivers exactly what they are expecting when they drop their money on a ticket. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody knows what they are getting into when they come to the show, so for us itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.

We can just go out there and do our show,â&#x20AC;? Dandeneau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just makes for a fun show every night no matter where we are, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fun.â&#x20AC;? Since forming in 2001, TOADM has been on a steady incline. Their first two albums were platinum sellers in Canada while their third, Scars and Souvenirs was a hit on both sides of the border, climbing to No. 2 in Canada and No. 6 on the U.S. rock charts. It also earned platinum status in the U.S. The Truth isâ&#x20AC;Ś took them to another level altogether as it hit No. 1 on the American rock charts and rose to No. 8 on the overall charts. The album has also spun four singles, which have been staples on rock stations everywhere â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lowlife, Out of My Head, Bitch Came Back and Hur-

ricane. A fifth single, Head Above Water, was recently released. Dandeneau said it has been an amazing experience to go out on the road and tour behind an album that has been such a success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We released Lowlife as the first single and first singles are always kind of scary because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what is going to happen. When that took off for us, it just got the ball rolling and everything after that just kept going and going. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then Bitch Came Back got released, we got some flack for it, but as soon as we start playing it, the fans know every word to it. It was exciting, everytime we released something it just took off and the fans really accepted it. Even on opening guitar riffs, people know exactly

what we are playing. That is a good feeling and that never goes away. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a certain style that this band creates and that will always be there. We try and create new things as well and kind of put it all together and make the band move forward sound wise and lyrically, change things here and there but keep the basics the same.â&#x20AC;? Dandeneau, who joined his TOADM bandmates Tyler Connolly, Dave Brenner and Dean Back in 2009, said once they are off the road, they plan to start writing songs for their next album. In the meantime, he said they are looking forward to hitting a number of Canadian cities they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the chance to tour through before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be there.â&#x20AC;? 6SRW6DQWD

Estevan Mercury

Owners hope restoration can begin at DQ Things are moving behind the scenes, even if it looks like there will never be a Dairy Queen in the Energy City again. Local DQ owner Louise Vandenhurk however, assures everyone that work is being done, and with a little patience, Dairy Queen will return to the city that housed the chainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first location in Canada back in 1953. The store has been shut down since an electrical fire broke out inside the building on June 18. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At one point, when the fire first started, they thought they might have to demolish the whole building,â&#x20AC;? said Vandenhurk, who said that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an option they were very willing to consider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody was really sure if it was all smoke damage or if there was actual fire damage. Once you get through the fire barrier, it was all smoke damage.â&#x20AC;? It did get very hot inside. The fire inspector told her the temperature hit near 1,700 F. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it took them so long to go into the building, because it was so hot.â&#x20AC;? In Dairy Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absence, a couple of hole-inthe-wall ice cream shops sprung up in Estevan, granting some relief for those who wished to go out for an ice cream snack on a hot summer day. After the fire, Dairy Queen headquarters told the local ownership they would not be rebuilding the same model. There is a new store design that came out in

The owners of the Estevan Dairy Queen have been busy trying to get contractors and engineers lined up to get work started on the restaurant that was hit with a fire in June. The issues with insurance have stretched the process more than they were expecting. Minneapolis earlier this year, and Dairy Queen wanted the Estevan location to be incorporated with the new look. Designs were made to fit the Estevan location, but Vandenhurk had to come back to Saskatchewan to find mechanical and electrical engineers. When she did, they found themselves sitting

at the back of a three-month waiting list. Vandenhurk then found a construction company that had just completed a Dairy Queen in White City this past summer. The company presented her and the insurance agent out of Regina with what she considered a very reasonable bid. The insur-

ance company in Toronto, however, requested that they gather three bids from different contractors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a contractor, and a contractor that has done a Dairy Queen. We feel if you get somebody who has done one, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already a month ahead,â&#x20AC;? said Vandenhurk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a

6WRPSUHKHQVLYH$3HUFXVVLYH3HUIRUPDQFH        7KXUVGD\'HFHPEHUDWSP

lot of push and shove, (the insurance company) got an independent company that reviews quotes and (decides) if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rational bid.â&#x20AC;? The contractor is Century West out of Regina, and is prepared to start work on the project as soon as they can. The contractor was approved by the insurance company on Nov. 30. Vendenhurk also noted they have all of their equipment ordered through corporate. They are only waiting on the approval of the contractor to start getting work done on the ground. She stressed they have no intention of leaving their current spot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are wanting to get this back,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a few staff members that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re foreign workers, and I need to get them back to work.â&#x20AC;?

Vandenhurkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister deals with immigrant employment and is in the process of getting those employees to return to work when they are needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ended up having to get some of them repermitted to other places to finish their contracts because we had no estimated time on opening. They need to work. They need to make money. So the ones that we could, we managed to get them re-directed to more food-service areas for companies that needed people.â&#x20AC;? The employees had their choice of places to go, and while two went to Regina and one to Weyburn, the rest have stayed in Estevan to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were pretty shook up. They liked working for us, and we liked having them.â&#x20AC;?

Sun Country directors walk the wall Sun Country Health Regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors were given a wall walk on Nov. 28, which did not entail a lot of walking, but did include some listening and learning. The wall walk was, in essence, a view of the health regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategy deployment in all areas of care. The wall of information, about 15 feet in length and containing a whole lot of coloured paper, is found just outside Sun Countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head office conference room in Tatagawa View in Weyburn. Sun Countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative personnel led the board members through an explanation of how their charts, graphs and checklists work on a regular basis, allowing all employees, clients, residents and families to view whether progress is being made in various sectors, or if there is a fallback in expectations or how it is recorded. Sun Countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president and CEO Marga Cugnet began the process and later handed off various explanations to people such as Don Ehman, vice-president of human resources; Janice Giroux, vice-president of community health; or Pamela Haupstein, interim vice-president of finance and corporate services.

The wall walk provided information as to how such things as injury reductions, patient safety, discharge planning, communication and collaboration works within the health region with its 19 facilities and 2,300 employees. Leaning on the Lean system of increasing efficiencies in health care, the administrative team pointed out how better handling of materials leads to safer surgeries, medication reconciliations and more effective plans for transfers to other communities or patient discharges. Keeping everyone from pharmacists to nurses, doctors and future caregivers in the loop at all times, gives the patient a better chance of recovering quickly and efficiently. Ehman looked at human resources workflow, employee injury reduction practices and paperless paycheques while Haupstein focused on such things as ordering and managing materials along with regional management training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can eliminate what they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be doing as well as focusing on what they should be doing,â&#x20AC;? said Haupstein. Leadership training is a big part of the new strategy deployment and even access to stored information

Don Ehman, vice-president of human resources for Sun Country Health Region, was one of the presenters who provided information to the board of directors during an informational â&#x20AC;&#x153;wall walkâ&#x20AC;? at the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headquarters at Tatagawa View in Weyburn. in the new system saves a lot of time since employees are trained in how to use the technological tools that are at their disposal. The wall walk absorbed about 45 minutes of the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time during the public portion of the general business meeting. After the members got seated again around the board table, chairwoman Marilyn Charlton reported on the various meetings she had attended including one with social services personnel in Regina regarding

Huron Carole concert site changed The show will be the same, but the venue has been changed. The Huron Carole benefit concert that was originally booked in Spectra Place will now be performed at the Church of God on Wellock Road in Estevan on Dec. 6 beginning at 8 p.m. Tom Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nationwide tour that has four stops in Saskatchewan, including Estevan, will be raising funds and awareness for local food banks along the way. A portion of the $35 concert admission fee will be directed toward the local food bank operated by the Salvation

Army in Estevan. Jackson, along with concert-mates Susan Aglukark, Matt Dusk and Sarah Slean, will be making 23 stops across the country. Jackson founded the Huron Carole concept in 1987 and it is named after Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fi rst Christmas carol composed in 1641 by Father Jean de Brebeuf, a Jesuit priest known for his missionary work with the people of Huronia. Through the Huron Carol song, de Brebeuf interpreted the story of Christmas in the Huron language where it was kept alive for more than 100 years

before being translated to French and English. The Huron Carole is a project of the Christmas and Winter Relief Association whose mandate is to support organizations doing hands-on work with the homeless and hungry in Canada. The concertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major sponsor is Enbridge Pipelines Inc. with Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life joining them as notable supporters of the tour. The other stops in Saskatchewan on the Christmas season tour will be in Regina, Saskatoon and North Battleford.

child-care reform. Cugnet reported on the fact that the physio and occupational therapies departments are once again fully staffed, something that the health region hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to report for some time, and as a result, pre-operative rehabilitation programs were now back on track. Haupstein said that on the financial side of the picture, Sun Country was currently showing a surplus of $1 million heading into the winter season, but travel and educational sessions would probably cut into that figure a bit. She said she predicted that by March of 2013, the surplus would be a little less than the current amount based on expected revenues and expenses. The board will meet again in January.

Sun Country Health Region board members Gary St. Onge and Audrey Trombley were interested observers as health region officials outlined their system of tracking and accountability during a virtual â&#x20AC;&#x153;wall walkâ&#x20AC;? exercise last week during the monthly board meeting.

A6 EDITORIAL

Stage set for new speed law Since a motion was passed by Estevan’s council a couple of weeks ago to introduce a new speed limit bylaw, the wheels have been put in motion so that the new restrictions could be enforceable in the early part of 2013. About half of the city’s population who went to the polls in the recent civic election voted in favour of reducing the speed limit to 40 from 50 km/h while keeping it at 50 along the city’s main thoroughfares. It was a non-binding vote that was pretty well split down the middle as to those who wanted the change and those who called for speed limit status quo. But following up on the wishes of the local police service and police board, the newly-elected council decided it would be best to comply by passing a motion to build a new speed restriction. Now the question becomes one of enforcement in 2013 since no speed bylaw is worth much of anything if it can’t be enforced. If the City is serious about the question, then we suggest that one good step toward making the task a bit easier would be the deployment of a photo/radar unit that would assist law enforcement officers. We believe the purchase would be cost effective, with owners of photographed vehicles who have been “caught” exceeding the speed zone limits being ticketed. The practice is enforceable since the units have been used in several communities and have been backed up by the courts. The owners of vehicles get to sort the issue out with the drivers of the vehicles, if that is the case. A photo/radar unit would also eliminate the problem of enforcing the speed laws when they are being broken by commercial truckers who are merely passing through the city and generally disregard a locally produced speeding ticket. A fine, having to be paid by the truck’s owner, would probably improve the ticket payment efficiency rate. Since it appears we face several more years before we’ll get a commercial truck bypass in this region, there is a need to try to protect what little remains of the current inner city truck route and other local motorists. The City already has one effective electronic tool at its disposal in the form of a speed activated welcome and monitoring board that reminds motorists passing in front of it how fast they are going and what the area speed limit is. Unfortunately this reminder board has not been used for the past two years, at least not to our knowledge. When it was used in the city’s high traffic/high speed areas for a couple of years, it proved its worth, but apparently not enough to warrant its continued deployment. So if a photo/radar and the reminder board were to be activated, we suggest that local law enforcement could begin a new era of speed control by using them first to check the speeds of vehicles passing through local 30 km/h school and playground zones. In the past, the speed restrictions in these zones that are already on the bylaw books, appear to be signals for motorists to accelerate through them rather than reduce speeds. They are the areas that should be a priority. As noted at the outset, it would be easy pickings and cost-effective to purchase photo/radar and redeploy the monitor board. But police have to have enough personnel and time to address the new situation. If they don’t, then the entire exercise and arguments for and against speed law changes are moot.

Sask. debt bad, but not 1980s bad Falling resource revenue and rising debt in the mid-year 2012-13 budget update will be unnerving for some of you who have been around for awhile. This was the scenario during the former Progressive Conservative Premier Grant Devine’s government in the 1980s. And the outcome was particularly devastating for rural Saskatchewan. Low resource revenue combined with disastrous financing by that administration resulted in a billion dollars in additional debt during each of those years in the 1980s. When the NDP government came into office in 1991, they were forced to make some harsh choices. One can argue until the cows come home as to whether closing 52 rural hospitals, tearing up the GRIP contracts with farmers or virtually abandoning maintenance of rural highSERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

Making no sense of it all Just a few items festering in the nether regions of my disassembled mind, dear diary. Did you ever wonder what we’re actually doing with the advanced access we have in app world? We connect instantly, but so far no blogs have fed anyone in Sudan. Nobody is moving the app world to where it is needed. North America can communicate in the time it takes to tap two thumbs, but to what end? We’re doing more of nothing ... very quickly. Don’t you miss those precious moments of the U.S. presidential campaign when the candidates were out begging for votes? Me neither. I must say I did enjoy those lighthearted minutes when Ann and Mitt Romney were attempting to appeal to the working people of America with references to their hard scrabble days as newlyweds in a university setting, trying to eke out a living. Ya gotta admit it was amusing. Ann talking about using the ironing board as a table to put their tuna and pasta on. That’s tough living? Tuna and pasta? That’s luxury food for 85 per cent of the population. Where they heck did they get an ironing board? If you’re living in poverty Ann, you’re not equipped with ironing boards because you have no iron! The poverty table is a cardboard box rescued from a dumpster. Mitt was so poor, he probably

Norm Park All Things Considered had to drive one of the lower lines of the cars that his dad’s factory made ... maybe one with a stick shift instead of automatic. I don’t know. What did struggling multimillionaires drive in the 1970s? We can’t blame Mitt for trying to identify with the common man. But he had already given his game away during the Republican leadership race when he challenged Rick Perry to a $10,000 bet. He was so sure his challenger was wrong on a certain topic of debate. Hey man, regular guys bet $10, not $10,000. Maybe he didn’t know that. Nope, the Romneys didn’t do so well trying to play the downtrodden card. Speaking of downtrodden, just once I’d like to be offered a premium check-in service at a hotel or airline counter or car rental agency. It would be nice to get a VIP pass to a big event, or have access to some sort of first-class service somewhere. OK, I admit on occasion a press credential has enabled me to squeeze into some places that the great unwashed don’t get access to ... but I’ve never been able to play a “premium, platinum, preferential” card to get into a place where I didn’t have to immediately go to

ways were the right choices. Harder to debate, however, is the reality that they were caused by a government saddling us with too much debt as resource revenue plummeted. So one might be somewhat forgiven for being a little nervous over the news that Finance Minister Ken Krawetz’s budget this year will add a billion dollars and that the province will now earn about $400 million less in oil, gas, potash and Crown land lease sales than the March budget initially predicted. It sounds all too similar to what got us into so much trouble in the 1980s. While there may be similarities to what went on 30 years ago that led to so much trouble for rural Saskatchewan and the rest of the province, there are also some very big, important differences. First and foremost, Krawetz’s budget is again balanced - something that no Devine-era finance minister was able to accomplish. It might only be a modest $12-million surplus, but that’s actually a pretty impressive feat, given the aforementioned $400-million drop in resource revenues. Credit should go to the entire Saskatchewan Party cabinet for actually finding decreases in 12 of 31 line departments, while coming in on target in 13 others. Second, it is not particularly comforting to see overall provincial debt rapidly climbing upward into the stratosphere of $9.55 billion - an additional billion dollars in one year. Those who witnessed public debt increase from $3 billion when the Devine government entered office in 1982 to $13 billion nearly 10 years later when the Progressive Conservatives

work. And I don’t think my 12 travel points are going to get me much past Macoun or Noonan. NHL lockout update. Financial guru Kevin O’Leary came up with a grand scheme. He’s the guy who is always saying “what’s in it for me?” Well, he figures the owners should extend the lockout for the rest of this season, and next season too. That would effectively break the players’ union. We could then supposedly see what is left of the NHL and a return to the good old days when Gordie Howe got $14,000 for the season and worked at another job in the summer. In this new NHL order, the players would accept CFL-level wages for a season, with the stars making $150,000 and the grinders plying their trade for $40,000. The owners who were still there, would rake in the billions as before. That would last until another WHA type of situation emerged, or one of them cheated on the unwritten collusion law of lousy pay in an effort to lure Sidney away from Pittsburgh for an extra ten grand. Then the circus would be back in town. At least it made for an interesting discussion. I am rapidly losing interest in the NHL and the NHLPA. These are the guys who do have the aforementioned premium, gold, platinum, preferential club memberships, but they all want more while the rest of us try to scare up some gas money.

left office in 1991 will be especially unnerved by that figure. And it is annoying to see SaskPower asking for an additional $120 million in borrowing in this budget update. A year earlier, SaskPower provided government with a special $120 million to allow it to balance the books before the election. But let us understand that this debt is all on the Crown side. Obviously, no debt is good, but large utilities in need of upgrades always need to borrow money for infrastructure improvements. And some of that money they now borrow will be recovered in the utility rates we pay. This is quite different than the Devine government’s debt of the 1980s that was also caused by accumulated deficits money owing to run government operations, that we are still paying back to the New York banks. Thirty years after Devine’s first deficit budget, that accumulated PC government debt is still $3.8 billion. That’s $3 billion less than it was, but it is still costing Saskatchewan taxpayers $395 million in annual interest charges. Finally, while falling resource revenue is never good in a resource-based province like ours, it’s important to note that $95-a-barrel oil offers little reason to complain. Clearly, the provincial government has to do a better job of estimating potash revenue. Its budget six months ago overestimated potash revenue by $240 million. But given that it wasn’t so long ago that we didn’t make $240 million in potash revenue in an entire year, some perspective is needed. And if nothing else, the mess left behind in the 1980s has given us a lot of perspective.

Council Briefs News and notes from the November 26 regular meeting of Estevan city council Council received a letter from Terry Gibson, the executive director of the Southeast Saskatchewan Airshed Association, asking for a member of council to join their board. Gibson appeared before council earlier this year and asked for a representative of the City to join the board. Then mayor Gary St. Onge said they would hold off on making a decision until after the Oct. 24 election was held. At the recent meeting, Councillor Brian Johnson indicated he was interested in joining the SESAA board and his appointment

was approved by council. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ In his regular report, city manager Jim Puffalt said the City has received calls about the fact the lights on the tennis courts have been left on at night during the winter months. Puffalt said the City is well aware that no one is playing tennis in the winter and that the lights are being left on as a security measure to prevent vandalism and other issues. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Council apologized for the confusion at the City Cemetery that led to flowers and other items

being removed from gravesites. According to comments made during the meeting, a staff member collected a handful of non-temporary items that should not have been removed for the winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a communications mix-up and we absolutely apologize to those that were impacted,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Roy Ludwig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately, all nontemporary materials were tagged and kept in storage. These items will be kept in storage and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to (return them to the owners).

â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Council also received an explanation about a concern that was raised at the Nov. 19 open meeting. Councillor Johnson alerted council to the fact that on Nov. 18, the compressor on the ice plant at Spectra Place was losing a substantial amount of oil which led to some issues with the ice. In a report from leisure services manager Brad Gilbert, it was noted that during the week of Nov. 12, arena staff had noticed the oil filter alarm light on compressor No. 1 was on. The City contacted

their service provider, Gateway, who dispatched an employee to replace the oil filter on Nov. 16. By Nov. 18, however, the oil pressure in the compressors had dropped low enough to trip the alarms and staff was called in. A staff member added roughly 25 gallons of oil, which is apparently equal to five months worth of normal operating oil, after noticing that levels had dropped below their minimum requirement. Gateway was contacted about the issue and an employee arrived later in the day to check on the

problem. It was learned that the issue was caused because during the service call, the Gateway employee didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly affix the gasket on the new fi lter, which plugged the intake and caused the oil to leak into the chiller. The disturbance forced the City to juggle the ice schedule, but no games were cancelled while other events changed venues to allow the atom tournament to continue. Gilbert said the City is ordering more oil and noted that Gateway will not be charging for the service call.

Guilty plea in immigration matter During Estevan provincial court on Dec. 3, Marcel Allary pleaded guilty to a charge under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act of illegally possessing a passport for the purpose of entering or remaining in Canada.

Two other charges were stayed by the Crown prosecutor who noted they would be proceeding by indictment. Sentencing for the matter was adjourned until Jan. 7. In other court proceed-

ings, Judge Karl Bazin made a decision on sentence considering Charles Heinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s matters, as the judge authorized a conditional sentence order. Hein was found guilty of two charges of mischief as well as failing to attend court on a number of occasions.

A pre-sentence report was completed for the proceedings, and Bazin noted that due to some personal circumstances in Heinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, his risk assessment was lowered from high to medium, considering him to be manageable in a community

setting. Bazin ordered Hein to a six-month community sentence order, which Bazin called a jail sentence served in the community. Alain Deguerre made his first appearance in Estevan provincial court on

Monday answering to a number of new charges. They include two counts of theft exceeding $5,000, two counts of break and enter, and two counts of mischief. His matter was adjourned until Dec. 17, so he can seek legal advice.

Unlocking the importance of early childhood The first five years in a child’s development are key, and as a recent southeast Saskatchewan study on child brain development has found, the entire community shares responsibility in raising the next generation. Between 2008 and 2011, the Southeast Regional Intersectoral Committee took part in a national survey, which looked at children in kindergarten and measured their development in the first five years of their lives. Donna Coleman Trombley, the co-ordinator for the region’s RIC, was in Lampman on Tuesday evening presenting the study’s fi ndings to community members and repeating the message that those first five years of life are a critical piece of the people we all become later in life. The southeast study is called Understanding Early Years: Prairie Children, Prairie Futures and is part of the national Understanding the Early Years

Initiative. “It was really a community-based project that was intended to help members of communities better understand the needs of their young children and families so that community members could strengthen or design local programs to meet those needs,” said Coleman Trombley. The data was collected from assessments of 1,856 kindergarten students in the southeast school divisions. “A part of this project

was the assessment of the developmental achievement of kindergarten-aged children,” added Coleman Trombley. The assessments of the students were made by their kindergarten teachers. Teachers used the Early Development Instrument (EDI), which looks at five domains of early childhood that the study deemed signifi cant for a child’s readiness to learn. The EDI is a questionnaire developed by doctors at McMaster University,

and it measures five areas of early child development: physical health and well-being, social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive development, and communication skills and general knowledge. The final report identifies a percentage of children vulnerable in each domain. Vulnerability, as defi ned for the study, means children who scored in the bottom 10 per cent. About 27 per cent of children in the southeast were considered to be vulnerable in one domain, while that number is 30 per cent provincially and 25 per cent nationally. Those numbers are cut in half when looking at children vulnerable in more than two domains. “We’re looking at what we can do to raise awareness of those factors that influence young children’s development and strengthen the community’s capacity to use that local data to inform decisions that enhance children’s lives,” said

Coleman Trombley. She said they are looking at the findings with the goal of understanding the state of early childhood in the region, the importance of those critical years and the impact of those years reaching into adulthood. “It takes a village to raise a child,” she said, noting they want to fi nd ways for communities to work together to ensure positive impacts in early childhood carry forward. Kindergarten children go to school at five, noted Coleman Trombley, but she said it’s the years before that that are perhaps more important. Dr. Fraser Mustard was a pioneer in brain development, she added, saying he called the early development the “unfinished business” that we have. “If we look at the bookends of early childhood, and we look at the things that are done really well in the first year of life, most children are born in hospitals,” she added. “They do the in-hospital

birth questionnaire. Public health nurses go out to assist the families and support families in the first year. But it’s that end of parenting leave and the beginning of school that it looks kind of bare. That’s such a critical time period.” She noted they have three regional KidsFirst community developers, with one sitting in each health region in the southeast. Their work involves programming that supports early childhood. Coleman Trombley said the developers are important, but said communities and service clubs need to be engaged to help. She is now taking the lead on data-to-action projects throughout the region in concert with the KidsFirst community developers. With the presentation in Lampman last night, she said they just want to raise awareness. She added that they are doing presentations in communities all over the southeast and expect to host one in Estevan before May 2013.

Blue X-mas service to be held 12122DS00

Those who have recently lost loved ones or who might be grieving in a other ways, and those coping with stress and anxiety will have an opportunity to receive some spiritual uplifting during the season of giving with a special Blue Christmas service. The event will be held in the chapel at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m., said Marian Huber, director of spiritual care at St. Joe’s. She will be joined by Rev. Brenna Nickel of St. Paul’s United Church and Rev. Stewart Miller of Trinity Lutheran Church along with Dustin Hall for an evening of giving and receiving. “It’s a time of year that can be difficult for some people. Christmas season is not necessarily great for everyone, so this is an opportunity for them,” said Huber. A little fellowship, if desired, is offered after the brief service concludes.

Decisions to be made soon at Creighton Lodge The managers at Creighton Lodge continue to wait for advice on just what they should be doing with their building. The seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home in Estevan had plans to complete work on an addition that would include a 36-foot by 30-foot lounge and entertainment room at the front of the building. The space was important because the suites are full and when musical groups and others are brought in to play a show, their current accommodations for those guests are much too cramped. Creighton Lodge now has 48 residents living in 45 suites, and they have 80 people on a waiting list. Fundraising for the addition has been going on for about two years, but at the end of the summer, the administrators received some bad news. They were told the roof was in need of a complete redo. The overhangs had created some prob-

lems and the flat roof was going to need to be redone in a peaked style. The cost for that work would be high. Upon getting a second opinion however, they were told maybe the problem wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that bad. A new contractor came in to have a look and found the only work needed was to the overhangs around the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference of spending a lot of money or fixing just what needs to be fixed,â&#x20AC;? said Judy Pratt, the lodge manager. She and Shelly Veroba, operations superintendent, want to make sure they have all the information they need before making a decision. Pratt said the overhangs on their building arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t insulated and they have rot occurring inside them as well as on the drainpipes. Veroba added that because the overhangs were left for so long, they could

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thankful that we found out about (the roof) because, heaven forbid, if we would had actually been starting the expansion and then found out about it,â&#x20AC;? said Veroba. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very happy it was discovered before the expansion was started, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more thankful that the donors were so wonderful. If the roof is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to keep this building going longer, they were generous enough to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;put the money where the building needs it the most.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Pratt noted that when Sun Country Health Region operated Creighton Lodge, they completed roof work in stages between 2002 and 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is now to ensure the roof is a 20year roof, and then move on to the expansion,â&#x20AC;? said Veroba. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really hoping we can fix the overhangs and the drainpipes and then we can carry on with

the expansion,â&#x20AC;? added Pratt, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whereas if we have to replace the roof, the expansion will not happen.â&#x20AC;? Pratt said the expansion would become a longterm goal, something that could be completed years down the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting to hear what our direction is from the management committee about what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do with the roof. Then our trust committee will try to confirm some fundraising, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make a difference,â&#x20AC;? said Pratt. The management committee will be meeting again on Dec. 20, where all assessments of the roof will be made available for review. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Pratt and Veroba hope a decision will be made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing the expansion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that we have to make sure the investigation of the roof happens before the breaking of the ground,â&#x20AC;? said Veroba.

Health Canada issues thermography warning Health Canada is advising Canadians and health care practitioners that no thermography (thermal imaging) machines have been approved to screen for breast cancer in Canada. In a recent press release, Health Canada said it is not aware of any clinical evidence that thermography can be used effectively as a screening technique for the early detection of breast cancer. As such, it may present a potential risk to women relying on

the results. Health Canada also reminded the public that thermography machines are not a replacement for routine monitoring and screening for breast cancer. Patients who have relied on these types of machines for breast cancer screening should contact their physician for appropriate followup and testing. Health officials are also following-up with the manufacturers of these devices to help ensure they are aware that it is illegal to

advertise or sell these types of machines to screen for breast cancer in Canada. This could result in a stop sale of any unlicensed product. Health Canada is also working with the Canada Border Services Agency to stop any unlicensed devices from entering Canada. Health Canada will be communicating with the provincial and territorial ministries of health to advise them that clinics falling under their responsibility should not be promoting or using these devices

to screen for breast cancer. There is more information on breast cancer, available through the Public Health Agency of Canada at http://www.phac-aspc. gc.ca/cd-mc/cancer/breast_ cancer-cancer_du_seineng.php. To confirm whether a device is licensed in Canada, please refer to the Medical Devices Active

Licence Listing at http:// www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/ md-im/licen/mdlic-eng. php. Complaints involving thermography machines used in the screening of breast cancer can be reported to the Health Products and Food Branch Inspectorate by calling the toll-free hotline at 1-800-267-9675,

or by writing to: Health Products and Food Branch Inspectorate, Health Canada, Address Locator: 2003D, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0K9. Consumers requiring more information about this advisory can contact Health Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public enquiries line at 1-613-957-2991, or toll free at 1-866-225-0709.

Fresh materials enhance reading programs The motion was passed and the goods arrived a short while after, filling up a good portion of the main conference room at the South East Cornerstone Public School Divisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head office. A motion to move ahead with a comprehensive intervention program for identified students in the local public school division was passed by the newly elected board of trustees at their Nov. 15 board meeting. The materials that arrived will be used for reading intervention program called Fountas and Pinnell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which is part of our philosophy to provide a systematic response when students are struggling with their reading,â&#x20AC;? said Marc Casavant, the divisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The resources will be distributed to the schools this week and staff will be using them soon thereafter,â&#x20AC;? he added, upon receiving the boxes of supplies Nov. 25. The Fountas and Pinnell system provides assessment and screening processes to place students at the

The system provides intervention vehicles that provide small-group supplementary services that bring struggling readers

up to grade-levels. It then allows the educators to monitor as well as collect, analyze and share data on individuals and class progress. There are a variety of tools and materials that can be used to perform these activities and Cornerstone latched onto a good supply of them since they will be

required throughout the system that includes 8,275 students in 38 different schools throughout the southeast corner of the province. The system being promoted not only assists the students but also trains the teachers to deliver the product. It also provides ongoing support for them as they move along in its delivery.

Minimum wage increase in effect Employers and minimum wage earners are reminded that Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minimum wage went up on Dec. 1. The increase to $10 will also result in a corresponding increase to the minimum call-out pay to $30. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy has been growing and it is only right that the minimum wage increase as well,â&#x20AC;? Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Minimum wage has increased by 25.8 per cent since 2007 - a significant increase in pay for working people in Saskatchewan.â&#x20AC;? This increase affects approximately 22,000 minimum wage earners in Saskatchewan, representing approximately five per cent of the paid workforce in Saskatchewan.

Shelter eases into operation on first weekend by Norm Park of The Mercury Estevan eased into the shelter business this past weekend. People who have been sleeping in vehicles or having to resort to paying for a motel room, or couch surfi ng, now have alternative sleeping arrangements, if needed. Only one man took advantage of the Estevan homeless shelter offering that began Saturday, Dec. 1, but volunteers in the program are expecting demands will grow as the mobile population becomes better acquainted with the temporary program and what if offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might take a few visits before the people who use the program learn about how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be treated and what to expect,â&#x20AC;? said Marian Huber, one of the shelter co-ordinators who volunteered her time and talent for Saturday and Sunday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we had had a blizzard, we probably would have had a few more,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people also have to think about whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to move from a vehicle into a shelter for a night or two, then back to the vehicle,â&#x20AC;? she said since the shelter is only available from Thursday night to Sunday night at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United

Marian Huber Church in the central part of the city. Due to other church programs, staffing and funding, the shelter canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be offered on every night of the week. The program will end in the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a typical shelter concept. The one man who used it on the weekend is working at a full-time job, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making $12 an hour and have to pay $90 for a motel room for one night, well, you see the problem,â&#x20AC;? said Huber. The man did not own a vehicle, so that option wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t available to him. He carries his belongings in three bags and tries to find a secure place for them when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had lots of food. Southern Plains Co-op donated that, St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provided their centre and

either, so that issue, as well as not being able to take in children under this arrangement, are a couple of things our board will have to address, perhaps with Victim Services,â&#x20AC;? said Huber who noted that Carol Knievel has been contracted to serve the program as hostess for the rest of the winter and she is the only person who is paid even a little for this. All the others are doing it as volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153; T h e U n i t e d Wa y is the major sponsor so far. Salvation Army, the churches are supporting it too,â&#x20AC;? said Huber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have more this weekend. I think right now people who do know about it might be a little scared, thinking maybe they have to share their story or

a secure place. We can house both adult men and women. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not set up to accept families with youngsters. We would have to refer those to the Salvation Army. They have tracked about 10 to 14 adults who they figure might be able to make use of the shelter and Estevan Police Service has identified a few more than that,â&#x20AC;? said Huber. By having just one guest, it allowed the volunteers plenty of time to iron out any perceived glitches and arrange for changes when four, five or 10 people arrive to seek temporary accommodations. Both male and female volunteers were available to fill the later hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a safe house in Estevan any more

something, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there to provide a safe place to sleep overnight and then we have to honour St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs in the mornings and vacate after cleaning up,â&#x20AC;? Huber added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m kind of glad we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have 20 people the first night because we needed to figure out what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d need to do differently if we needed to provide a safe house environment,â&#x20AC;? she said. Knievel and Huber have worked in homeless shelters before. Huber said she spent hours in an Edmonton hostel for several years and never felt insecure because the people who use the facilities, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get it.â&#x20AC;? They know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about and whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alcohol, drugs or whatever ... they abuse the situation theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out. They know it.â&#x20AC;? There could be a regular cycle of users in Estevan until they find housing, Huber said. The committee received some hospital beds that had been retired from use at St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital,

which meant easier cleanup in the morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our one guest appreciated the effort. He refused our offer of hygiene products like shampoo and toothpaste because he said he had all that stuff, so it was just a matter of giving him a bed for a couple of nights,â&#x20AC;? said Huber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect there will be nights when no one will need to use it, others when it could be busy. Those who use it knowing that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not available every night have to consider whether or not they should bother using it ... how it could help them. The opportunity to get a little laundry done, that alone might convince them itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worthwhile.â&#x20AC;? This coming weekend, the Estevan shelter at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will be open all four nights ... Thursday through Sunday and with the weather turning a little bit nastier, the expectations are that this will drive a few more people into the facility in search of warmth, good food and a cadre of well intentioned volunteers.

Icy highways handled efficiently, for the most part â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were a lot better off than they were around Weyburn.â&#x20AC;? Const. Cris Classen of the Estevan detachment of the RCMP was responding to a request to comment on Estevan area calls for assistance resulting from the extremely icy highway conditions that prevailed during the past weekend. The local detachment responded to just three motor vehicle incidents involving icy roads on the past weekend, two of them being rollovers and

the other being a vehicle entering a ditch. None of them resulted in injuries to drivers or passengers. This was minor compared with the more chaotic situations that drivers found themselves in further north, west and east. Classen said the one call he received involved an early morning dispatch to a point west of Torquay on Highway 18 that involved a Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure sanding truck which had slipped into the ditch.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty much a skating rink out there early Saturday morning,â&#x20AC;? said Classen. The other two incidents occurred Friday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Highway 39 from Midale to Weyburn was pretty bad most of the weekend, so we were just pretty lucky right around here. It could have been much worse,â&#x20AC;? He said, adding that highway traffic volumes were reduced a lot due to the conditions and the detachment received

a number of calls from potential motorists wanting to know more about local roads and highway conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Highways people got the salt and sand units out right away and that definitely helped almost immediately,â&#x20AC;? Classen said. And while some members were addressing tough highway conditions, others were carrying on investigations, one of which involved the theft of nearly 400 litres of diesel fuel between late night Nov. 27

and early morning Nov. 29. The fuel was removed from the fuel tank of a parked D8 Caterpillar bulldozer that was located about six kilometres north of Lampman. Another incident that is being investigated by the local RCMP involved a royal blue pickup truck that was seen parked on the shoulder of Highway 18 about four miles west of Estevan on the afternoon of Nov. 30. The truck was parked facing the wrong direction

with what appeared to be a rifle pointed out of the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s window. The intentions of the driver were unknown to observers who could not state emphatically that the object seen was actually a firearm, but they had reported what they had seen in the interest of public safety. Anyone with information regarding either of these incidents is asked to contact the local RCMP detachment at 637-4400 or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Chamber has ambitious plans for future The Estevan Chamber of Commerce is exploring the possibility of creating an energy expo which would debut in 2014. The concept of the expo was one of many items discussed by chamber manager Michel Cyrenne during a presentation on economic and tourism development at the Nov. 26 regular meeting of city council. In his report, Cyrenne looked back at the events of the past year and touched on their plans for the future. He also presented the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget for 2013. Cyrenne began his report by looking back at the past year and said the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development focus centred on five areas: information management, marketing, business retention and expansion, planning and the energy sector. A highlight of 2012 was the creation of a new economic development

website which has been operating since the start but was completed in October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The site) provides a great amount of detail about the information a prospective investor might have regarding doing business in Estevan,â&#x20AC;? Cyrenne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy to navigate and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a time saver for us as well. When we do get an inquiry, rather than having to put all this information together and send it out, we can direct them to the website.â&#x20AC;? Cyrenne added the site also includes a database of real estate developers that have worked in the area. Another highlight he touched on was the completion of a municipal readiness test that gauges whether or not a community is ready for economic development. Cyrenne said the test was comprised of 67 questions and that a score of 50 means a municipality is very ready. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 58 of those

67 (questions) and we are working on filling that gap,â&#x20AC;? he said. Cyrenne said they have also placed a strong emphasis on marketing and media tracking which paid off with

an article in the Globe and Mail and an investor publication. With respect to tourism, the chamber un-

Michel Cyrenne

veiled tourismestevan.com this year and also created a mobile site for smart phones. They also held a handful of events centred around tourism awareness week and held the first-ever Beach Bash at the Boundary Dam beach which had a strong debut despite the weather related challenges it faced. Looking to 2013, the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities include business retention and expansion, investment promotion and working towards the creation of the Estevan Energy Expo which would be held every other year beginning in 2014 so it does not clash with the Sask. Oil Show in Weyburn. Cyrenne said the expo would focus on coal, power generation and oil and he noted the chamber has had preliminary discussions with SaskPower, Sherritt Coal and the Saskatchewan Energy Training Institute. Cyrenne added that 2013 will see the chamber

unveil its economic development plan. The first draft was completed in July while the second draft was expected last week. Once the plan is reviewed it, will be sent to the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development committee in January. As for tourism, one of the focuses in 2013 will be the signage audit which was announced earlier this year. Industrial tourism is another area the chamber said it would like to explore further. The budget showed that the chamber is projecting an income of over $457,000 in 2012 compared to expenses of $472,000. The projected income for 2013 is $490,000 while expenses are pegged at $469,000. The chamber is again asking the City for $250,000 in funding while the RM of Estevan is being asked for $30,000 which is the same amount they provided in 2012.

SaskEnergy announces expansion plans SaskEnergy is experiencing customer expansion not seen in a generation, thanks to continuing economic and population growth. In the past five years, the Corporation has connected more than 33,000 new customers - four times the average over the previous 10 years. By the end of 2012, SaskEnergy will have added more than

7,000 new residential, business and industrial customers. This is the third major â&#x20AC;&#x153;waveâ&#x20AC;? of well-aboveaverage customer growth SaskEnergy has experienced. The two other key growth periods were urban growth in the 1950s when natural gas was first introduced to Saskatchewan cities and a rural expansion initiative in the

1980s. In this latest wave, large industrials are the fastest growing customer sector, driven by mining expansion, new power production and oilfield development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;SaskEnergy plays a vital role in supporting Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy by developing the energy infrastructure new customers require,â&#x20AC;?

Today, SaskEnergy operates 67,000 kilometres of distribution lines and more than 14,000 kilometres of transmission pipeline and has a customer base of more than 365,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Demand for new natural gas connections demonstrates how sustained this level of growth has become in our communities, as SaskEnergy will continue connecting new customers throughout the winter months and already has customer

commitments indicating that activity will continue at these elevated levels for 2013 and into 2014,â&#x20AC;? McMillan said. McMillan added that throughout this latest growth period, SaskEnergy continues to focus on its primary goal - delivering safe and reliable natural gas service to the people of Saskatchewan. This includes increased spending on safety programming of $79 million in 2012, rising to $94 million for 2013.

Local group facing high demand Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angel Tree and Christmas hamper committee is expecting unprecedented demand this season if early indications mean anything. Char Seeman and Heather Woodhouse, who are co-chairing the seasonal program this year, have been given a heads-up by local community volunteers that the requests and applications for Christmas food and toy hampers might be larger than ever before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking for support. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be meeting with our community service groups December 11 to let them know where and when to deliver ham-

pers on December 22,â&#x20AC;? said Seeman in a telephone interview Dec. 3. An early count of hamper applications had already exceeded 30 and Seeman said she received another six a day after that count was made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Salvation Army is telling us to expect a record number of requests and there will be a lot more kids, a lot of large and small family requests this year,â&#x20AC;? Seeman said. Last year the hamper requests numbered 173. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We accept hamper requests up to Dec. 9, but that is just requests from a hamper committee perspective. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take requests

almost right up to the last minute, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to come through other organizations like the churches,â&#x20AC;? she added. Doing the deliveries on Dec. 22 means that the perishable foodstuff like ham and turkey and the vegetable and fruit products will be pretty fresh for cooking Christmas day. The annual Angel Tree was set up for business on Dec. 3 at Walmart and the tree will be staffed by volunteer personnel between now and Dec. 15 from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily. Those wishing to make a contribution of an age-appropriate gift for youngsters between the

ages of one and 16 can do so by visiting the Angel Tree and making a donation and/or gift selection. The toys and games that are purchased will be displayed and readied for the Christmas hampers at Trinity Lutheran Church this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We usually have the toy store set up in the lower level of St. Giles Church, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the middle of a major reconstruction project right now, so Trinity has stepped up to give us the space this year,â&#x20AC;? Seeman said. Sharing the co-ordination duties is welcomed, said Seeman, who has been been chairing the Angel Tree project for the past

five years and has been intimately involved in the hamper project as a volunteer for 10 years. Woodhouse is also a well-known long-serving volunteer with the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community hamper and the Salvation Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas hamper projects have been coming together for the past several years. By working together on this, we can ensure that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t double up on hamper recipients and make sure that no legitimate request or application goes unfilled,â&#x20AC;? Seeman said, even the last minute ones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember last year, we had a request for a hamper as late as Christmas

Eve, and they got one,â&#x20AC;? said Seeman, remarking on the wonderful corporate, individual and volunteer support the project receives every year. Seeman said she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what will happen if the demands this year far exceed their ability to provide, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re counting on the largesse of the Estevan community to help them prepare for this potentially record-setting demand to help feed everyone in the Energy City this Christmas. The ultimate target is to provide hamper recipients with a happier feeling of goodwill than they might otherwise expect.

Envision continues battle against violence On Dec. 6, 1989, a 25-year old male student entered the University of Montrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Engineering building, walked in to a classroom, and separated the men from the women. He then ordered the men to leave the classroom and lined the women up along wall. He yelled profanities at the women and began shooting. Fourteen women were killed that day and 13 others were wounded. Dec. 6 is Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Dec. 6 is a day to reflect on violence against women living in Canada and around the world. The day also allows individuals and communities to dedicate a day to reflect on all the women, men, and children who live daily with the threat of violence. Envision Counselling and Support Centre encourages individuals in southeast Saskatchewan to do the same. Violence against women has increased in this part of the province by 156 per cent, according to Estevan Police Service. That means three times the number of sexual assaults were reported in Estevan

compared to last year. In Saskatchewan, there were more than 7,000 police reported crimes of intimate partner abuse in 2010. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated that only 22 per cent of all incidents are reported to the police, so the real number is much higher. The YWCA of Canada released this statement regarding Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The date is etched in history by the shooting deaths of 14 women in 1989 in Montreal by a man deliberately targeting women on a busy campus. Canadians reacted with shock, sorrow, and outrage. A strong lobby formed to bring guns under control in Canada, work that continues to this day. December 6th became the day we remember the women who died and recommit to taking action on violence against women and girls until our streets, our campuses, and our homes are safe. Because Canada is not yet a safe country for women.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the Montreal massacre happened 23 years ago, the need to remind people of violence against women continues,â&#x20AC;? said Patt Lenover-Adams,

executive director of Envision Counselling Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things have changed since we began counselling women in the southeast - such as a flat-line of national rates of selfreported spousal violence - but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing some disturbing trends.â&#x20AC;? She says that women are less likely now to report an incident to police than in the past. And now,

statistics show that more women are experiencing violence after they leave their abuser. Lenover-Adams also emphasised that partner abuse has a profound impact on children. Each year in Saskatchewan approximately 24,000 children will be exposed to male violence again their mother in their own homes. Children are present during 80

Winter weights now in effect Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter weights took effect Saturday, Dec. 1 for all applicable provincial highways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a land-locked, export-based economy, trucking plays a major role in getting Saskatchewan made goods to market,â&#x20AC;? Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winter weight season allows shippers to haul heavier loads during colder winter months, resulting in fewer trips and

cost savings for the industry and strong economic activity for the province of Saskatchewan.â&#x20AC;? When the roadbed freezes, both primary and secondary weight highways have the same strength. Shippers using secondary weight highways benefit the most from winter weights because it allows for more efficient movement of goods from secondary to primary weight highways.

The winter weight season can start as early as Nov. 16 and remains in effect until March 14, but may be restricted through a ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order because of weather and roadbed conditions. In the past, the ministry has removed winter weights in some areas of Saskatchewan if temperatures rise and roadbeds become soft. Winter weights are typically removed on March 15, depending on the

weather, however shippers are asked to check the status regularly. Truckers can find the latest road restriction orders and related information online at www. highways.gov.sk.ca/restrictions/ or by calling the Highway Hotline as follows: Regina and area at 306-787-7623; Saskatoon and area at 306-9338333; across Canada at 1-888-335-7623; and on the SaskTel Cellular Net-

work at *ROAD. For technical and regulatory information during the winter weight season, commercial carriers within Saskatchewan can also phone the Transport Compliance Branch Inquiry Line at 1-866-9335290. Truckers outside of Saskatchewan can call the same line at 306-9335290. The line operates weekdays, except statuary holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

ECS girls lose tight one in semis After the best start they could have asked for in their annual Shoot For A Cure tournament, the Estevan Comprehensive School senior girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team ran out of steam in the semifinals. The Elecs lost a close 49-45 game to the Melfort Comets on Saturday to bow out of championship contention. ECS had beaten the Central Cyclones 42-32 in their opener on Friday night, fuelled by an 18-2 lead after the first quarter and a big crowd on hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A win against Moose Jaw Central was a great start to our season on Friday night. The girls started strong and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look back,â&#x20AC;? said Elecs head coach Jessie Smoliak. ECS went on a 12-0 run to start the game and set the tone for the rest of the night. They led 23-11 at the half, and 36-20 after the third quarter. Although Central picked away at the lead in the last few minutes, they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get close enough to put the game in doubt.

That win sent them to the semis against Melfort on Saturday afternoon, with only four points separating the Elecs from the tournament final. Instead, they headed to the third place game, which they lost 62-48 to Indian Head. Other teams taking part in the tournament were Swift Current, Weyburn, Melville and Swan River. Meanwhile, the team raised more than $1,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society through donations, selling pink â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shoot For A Cureâ&#x20AC;? shirts and baked goods. It was the third year they have used the tournament as a fundraiser to fight cancer. Smoliak said the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SRC did a great job of advertising, promoting and helping out on the weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we had a great turnout, despite the weather. It is always a good feeling when we have our student body, staff members and fans from the community cheering on our school team. There was a lot of support for the tournament and

fundraiser,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Elecs only have five returning players this year, with the rest being members of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior girls squad, which won their district championship. Smoliak said she was happy with the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing in its first game action of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With it being our first tournament and only having five practices, I thought the girls played really well together. I was very confident to play all of my players this weekend. I really wanted to see who played well with one another,â&#x20AC;? she said. Smoliak added that the Grade 10 players on the team â&#x20AC;&#x153;played well for being introduced to senior basketball,â&#x20AC;? and that Grade 9 players Tess Lindquist and Taylor Boan have been fast learners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very excited for these two because they are aggressive and have the drive to score,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot to work on and my girls need to get into better shape. (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m) looking forward to the season though.â&#x20AC;?

Bruins trade Yano to Kindersley Brett Blatz coming back in unexpected swap of defencemen The Estevan Bruins sent a shock around the SJHL and a message to their players on Monday, trading defenceman Austin Yano to the Kindersley Klippers. Coming back is defenceman Brett Blatz, in a late-breaking deal from the Dec. 1 cutdown deadline. Both rearguards are 19 and have another year of Junior A eligibility remaining. Bruins head coach and general manager Keith Cassidy said the team wanted someone with a little more sandpaper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that rounds out our guys very nicely. We were looking for somebody â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone about piecing our defence together â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to have a little more size and grit in our own zone,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to get something, you have to give something up. That was the price. We were certainly hesitant to do that because Yano does have a lot of promise, but at the end of the day, we feel this is a good deal for both teams.â&#x20AC;? Blatz brings size to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back end, standing 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds. In his second season with the Klippers, the Saskatoon native also has 10 points in 26 games, to go with 36 penalty minutes. Yano was a rookie revelation as an offensive defenceman last year, leading all SJHL rookie blue liners in scoring with 27 points, and consistently logging anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes per game. He had taken a step back this season though, managing only seven points through 23 games.

Austin Yano â&#x20AC;&#x153;He certainly had a good rookie season, he and (Tyler) Kauk back there. The expectations were for him to continue down that road, and for Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake, maybe a new location will open things up for him and get him back to where he needs to be,â&#x20AC;? Cassidy said. Yano could not be reached for comment on Monday. Asked why Yano had regressed this season, Cassidy suggested that the issue had more to do with the White City nativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude than his skill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to put my finger on it exactly, but I think with Austin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a lot of times you have players who have very good rookie seasons and just anticipate that thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to continue throughout their career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to get to the top, you gotta keep bettering yourself and working at it. I think a lot of times players forget that and rest on what they know. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for guys that are continually trying to prove themselves and I think Brett can do that,â&#x20AC;? Cassidy said. The coach added that he hopes the trade leads other players to step up their

game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You always hope that a move like that has a bit of a shakeup effect on the guys. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not the core reason for doing it, but if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good secondary effect, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help the team as well. Assuming that jobs are safe is not something we can stand for around here, and if that serves as a reminder, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing.â&#x20AC;? The Bruins made two other roster moves at the Dec. 1 deadline, which reduces the player cards for each team from 45 to 25.

Teams tend to cut down to 22 or 23 to allow for additions to the roster at the Jan. 10 trade deadline. They acquired 20-yearold centre Alex Cote from the Summerside Western Capitals of the Maritime Hockey League for future considerations. Cote, a native of Kirkland, Que., had eight goals and 19 points in 25 games for the Capitals, who are hosting the Royal Bank Cup this season. He spent last season with the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL, posting

14 points in 43 games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somebody weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been after for a while. It takes a big leap of faith for him to come to our team at this point. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 20-yearold and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got great leadership abilities,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a good hockey pedigree and I know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very concerned about getting the most out of his final year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for him to bring intensity and leadership and help us out in the very-needed area of scoring.â&#x20AC;? The team also released 20-year-old centre Dustin

Jesseau, who was acquired only three weeks ago from the Abitibi Eskimos of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. Cassidy said he asked for a trade back to Ontario, where he felt the style of play was better suited to his skillset. Earlier in the week, the Bruins jettisoned a pair of rookie forwards, shipping Ben Williams to the Virden Oil Capitals and releasing Brandon Halbgewachs. The team now has 23 players on its roster, including injured left winger Calder Neufeld.

Daku, Baldwin win in Virgin Islands Estevan mixed martial arts fighters Derek Daku and Wade Baldwinfound success while experiencing an adventure in the U.S. Virgin Islands last week. The two amateur fighters won their bouts on a Paradise Fighting Championship card dubbed MMA in Paradise II. The event took place in St. Thomas, one of two islands that make up the U.S. Virgin Islands. Daku (4-1) was fighting for the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heavyweight championship and defeated Saul Solivan of Puerto Rico. Solivan had the upper hand in the first round, but he submitted with 10 seconds left in the second round after breaking his hand. Late in the first round, Daku took a heavy right fist from Solivan and took a few more strikes on the ground before the bell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I honestly admit I probably lost that round.

I was bleeding out of the bottom of my eye and probably having a little trouble seeing,â&#x20AC;? said Daku. It was a different story in the second round as Daku, in his own words, dominated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came back at him, got some good strikes in on him, slammed him down to the ground, got some really good strikes in from the top and we ended up clinched together on the ground. The ref stood us back up and (Solivan) was pulling his mouthpiece out and he quit.â&#x20AC;? Baldwin, meanwhile, needed less than a minute to take care of American opponent Ken Sweeney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came out and threw a bunch of leg kicks. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever thrown a leg kick in a fight before,â&#x20AC;? Baldwin laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got him worried about them, he clinched up against me, and I got him up against the cage and got him with

Baldwin landed more than 10 strikes, with Sweeney not defending himself, and the referee ended the fight by technical knockout. Baldwin (2-3) said the event was well put together and he hopes to return in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to see a bunch of different guys

from different countries and their level of training. I was actually surprised by how good everybody was. Lots of the fights were exciting and went the distance,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gladly go back down there and fight.â&#x20AC;? Daku and Baldwin were the only Canadians on the card, which featured eight fights.

Estevan Mercury

Bruins go winless on road trip Slumping club falls to 11th in SJHL standings A nightmarish season continued for the CanElson Drilling Estevan Bruins on the weekend, as they lost all three games on a critical northern road swing. The struggling team now sits second-last in the SJHL and fifth in the Sherwood Conference with a record of 8-15-2-0. They were only two points ahead of the last-place Weyburn Red Wings entering Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game at Notre Dame. The Bruins lost 3-2 to the Melfort Mustangs on Friday, 6-3 to the Flin Flon Bombers on Saturday and 4-1 to the La Ronge Ice Wolves on Sunday. Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road record now sits at an ugly 3-12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any bus legs coming off the bus in Melfort. We came out and had a strong first period. We rode the bus to every game this weekend and we came out flying in every game,â&#x20AC;? said Bruins head coach Keith Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teams are supposed to win at home, but you try to be above .500 on the road and obviously weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

Bruins right winger Tyler Paslawski goes after a loose puck in the corner during a recent game nowhere near that right now. I attribute the road problems to the same problems weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having generally, an inability to put the puck in the net.â&#x20AC;? On Sunday, the Bruins peppered Wolves goalie Dasan Sydora with 47 shots, yet they were held off the board until Hudson Morrison scored with nine seconds left in regulation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You outshoot a team 47-30 and you only manage one goal, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that the effortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not there and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not getting

the opportunities. The scoring part is letting us down,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hear â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;(they got) 47 shotsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and a lot of times youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from the perimeter. We had more glorious scoring opportunities than I can remember in a hockey game. Their goalie did play real well, my hatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off to him.â&#x20AC;? Graham Smerek, Brendan Boyd, Brett McNevin and Owen LaClare had the goals for La Ronge. On Saturday, the Bruins

fell down 4-1 after two periods, and although they did narrow that gap in the third, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to beat the Bombers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played them tight in the first period, had an unfortunate (lapse) in the second and made a good push back to make it 4-3.

It only took three minutes for the Estevan Sherritt Coal Bruins to give up a point in the standings on Sunday. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how much time was left in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game between the peewee AA club and the Swift Current Broncos, with the Bruins leading 5-2. But in that span of time, the Bruins gave up three goals, including the tying marker on a penalty shot, to settle for a 5-5 tie instead of what had seemed like a certain victory. The tie wrapped up a two-game homestand against the Broncos at Spectra Place. Estevan won Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game 5-2. It was only the third point of the year for Swift

needed to do to get in scoring position and when the critical moment came, we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to put the puck in the net.â&#x20AC;? Cassidy added that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for the team to show some urgency, with the season nearly half over and the Bruins languishing in a deep hole in the standings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer early in the year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;we gotta get it doneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time. The guys are very well aware of that. I think that was shown in the effort and the intensity we had this weekend.

We took an untimely penalty that cost us and that kinda snuffed out the push back we had going,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. Wyatt Garagan and Tanner Froese scored midway through the third to make it close, but the Bombers responded with two of their own in the last 70 seconds. Recently acquired defenceman Leighton McLachlan scored his first goal as a Bruin in the first period. Josh Roach (2), Brett Boehm, Spencer Mault, Dallen Hall and Tyson Empey scored for Flin Flon. On Friday in Melfort, the Bruins blew a chance to start the trip off right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you go in there, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your first game of a three-game road trip, against a team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to you in the standings, you certainly want to take advantage,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a bit of the same old, same old in that game.

Apex Bruins fall to Storm The Estevan Apex Bruins fell below .500 on Saturday after a 5-2 loss to the Prairie Storm on home ice. The Bruins (5-6-4) now sit in seventh place in the midget AA division of the South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League. The Storm scored three goals in the second period to put the game away and move to 6-6-4 on the year. Matthew Wass opened the scoring with an unassisted marker at 7:34 of the first period. Jolan Lingelbach countered for the Bruins less than five minutes later, with Jason Hengen and Talys Halabuza drawing assists. The Storm regained the lead with six minutes left in the period on a goal by Dylan Mohr.

It was all Storm in the second period. Matt Perkins scored only 16 seconds in on a power play to make it 3-1. Mohrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second of the night came at the 4:34 mark, and Lucas Nagel gave the visitors a four-goal lead 1:43 later. The only goal of the third period belonged to the Bruins, with Marc Shaw finding the back of the net at 11:04. The Storm went 1-for8 on the power play, while the Bruins were held off the board on 10 chances. Tanner Tytlandsvik was in goal for Estevan. The Bruins were scheduled to host Moose Jaw on Sunday, but the game was postponed. Their next action is on Friday in Weyburn.

The Estevan Atom Sharks won a water polo tournament in Regina on the Nov. 24 weekend.

Jarred Hicks scored 49 seconds later to put Regina ahead 5-4 after two periods. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for the Bruins to knot up the score again, with Mitchell Morrison doing the honours 86 seconds into the third. Bill gave the Bruins their first lead of the night midway through the period with his second goal of the game, but barely two minutes later, Hicks struck again to tie it 6-6. Hicks completed a hat trick with two minutes left, but only 47 seconds later,

Atom Sharks win tournament The Estevan Sharks atom water polo squad had a successful weekend, winning a tournament in Regina. The Sharks won the tournament final 6-3 over a team from the host city. In five round-robin games, the Sharks won three and tied two. They started with a 3-3

tie against a Regina boys team, then beat a Regina girls team 9-1. The Sharks doubled up the Weyburn Hurricanes 6-3 in their third game, then tied the Weyburn Tornadoes 4-4 and finished up the roundrobin portion with a 6-2 win over the Regina Seals.

Estevan Mercury

Ex-Bruin doing well in business world This is the second installment in a monthly series of articles about Estevan Bruins alumni who have gone on to achieve success after hockey. These stories will also appear in the Estevan Bruins Alumni monthly newsletter.

Carmine Anoia was already immersed in the world of business when he played with the Estevan Bruins in the late 1990s. Anoia, a defenceman who served as an alternate captain with the Bruins in 1997-98, was a club pro-

moter in his hometown of Montreal at the time. Now, 15 years later, Anoia makes his living as a businessman on two fronts in Montreal. Anoia is involved with a company called Hockeyis that produces Armour Pro

Bruins lose Daae to P.A. Raiders The Estevan Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; scoring ranks took a hit last week when left winger Austin Daae left the team to sign with the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League. Daae, 19, joined the first-place Raiders on Nov. 28. The Estevan native had five goals and 16 points in 21 games with the Bruins. Seven of those points came in his last six games, as he found some chemistry on the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first line with Cole Olson and Tanner Froese. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think in the short term itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to hurt us a little bit, because they were developing some chemistry. Austin was starting to come around and find his game,â&#x20AC;? said Bruins head coach and general manager

Austin Daae Keith Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He added something on the power play for us. Our power playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been struggling a little bit, but he was a bit of a bright spot that way.â&#x20AC;? In a news release, Raiders general manager Bruno Campese noted that the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster has been temporarily depleted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the number of players attending interna-

tional tournaments, this provides Austin an opportunity to come and compete for a roster spot with our club,â&#x20AC;? he said. Daae spent the majority of last season in the WHL with the Prince George Cougars, where he played in 52 games and managed two goals and six points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always great, especially for a player like Austin, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent some time in the Western League, to have the opportunity to go back there,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can help a player do that, we certainly want to because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about moving players on and helping them get to the next level. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where he wants to be, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fully supportive of it.â&#x20AC;?

cut-resistant hockey socks. Only four years since its inception, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s socks are worn by many players in the NHL and lower leagues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have pretty much every team in the NHL buying from us,â&#x20AC;? Anoia said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do a lot of custom stuff for NHL players. Lots of AHL, NCAA, CHL. We have a lot of leagues that are starting to take this seriously.â&#x20AC;? He said the concept was born out of conversations with friends on the Montreal Canadiensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; training staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was basically just talking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missing in the NHL right now is cutresistant socks or forearm sleeves.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; A lot of guys were getting badly cut. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what triggered it,â&#x20AC;? Anoia recalled. The Armour Pro socks are made of high performance polyester and Anoia noted a key difference between the product and com-

peting cut-resistant socks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most (others) have a Kevlar base, which has a lot of negative feedback to hockey players. Very rigid, very thick,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does the job, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cut-resistant, but our sock is totally different from these people. Very silky, very thin, very comfortable, 100 per cent antimicrobial in its nature,â&#x20AC;? Anoia explained, adding that competing products need some sort of solvent added to prevent bacteria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comfort. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very thin, very light, very comfortable to wear,â&#x20AC;? he said. The socks are selling in retail stores and will be available at Source for Sports locations in 2013. When he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t busy with Hockeyis, Anoia manages restaurants. He grew up with his family being in the restaurant business and he has carried that on. He owns a high-end steakhouse that seats 160

people, an Italian restaurant with a capacity of 400 and is in the process of opening a third restaurant, for breakfast and lunch, which will hold 165 people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up in it. All my family are in the restaurant business in Montreal,â&#x20AC;? Anoia said. Looking back on his one-year stint in Estevan, Anoia said he is thankful for the treatment he and his teammates received from the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great time. People in Estevan were great to us. As people coming from the outside, we were treated well by our billets. I have great memories,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a really good team and we were supposed to go all the way, but unfortunately we ended up short. It was a different type of hockey (back then). â&#x20AC;&#x153;(I want to) thank Estevan for the years I was there, it was really fun.â&#x20AC;?

Yano trade could send message to ex-teammates One of the great success stories of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Estevan Bruins campaign came to a halt on Monday. The team traded offensive defenceman Austin Yano to the Kindersley Klippers for defenceman Brett Blatz. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exchange of flash and dash for size and grit. It was a trade that shocked many, and some league observers are talking about Yano being such a dynamic offensive force and that the Bruins are crazy to trade him. That was last year. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen that Yano this season. As a rookie, Yano certainly had a lot of work to do to get better in his

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out own end, but his offensive capability made up for it, and his ability to log tons of minutes alongside Tyler Kauk was a major boon to the club. This year that production has dried up, with seven points in 23 games. Although Yano has taken the puck end-to-end a lot this year, that has more often resulted in chances the other way, rather than Bruin goals. Yano was one of several players on this team who regressed, and it seems to me that there has been a

lot of complacency in that dressing room this year. Players who maybe didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work hard enough in the off-season to step up their game. Players not taking the game seriously enough. Players who carry on as usual after a loss, and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taken to task for it because they worked hard and just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put the puck in the net. At some point that simply isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not good enough for a team that was expected to be a contender. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not nearly good enough for fans who have seen this song and dance time after time after time. God knows theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve supported the Bruins in just about every way possible. They deserve a winning

team. It costs a lot of money to run a junior hockey team, and in the age of social media and entitlement, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting harder and harder to find players who pour everything they have into the game and their team. Players who are here primarily for hockey, not for partying and girls. Certainly that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply to everyone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on the Bruins or in general â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big issue. And I believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge reason for the start this team has had. Yano was a core player in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dressing room. He was well-liked, and seemed to be firmly entrenched here. The trade was a complete surprise, and for that

reason, it should send a message to the Bruins who are still here that they could be next unless things start to change. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very little urgency with this team right now, and for a club that has performed massively below expectations, that is

disturbing. Josh Lewis can be reached by phone at 6342654, by e-mail at sports@ estevanmercury.ca, on Twitter at twitter.com/joshlewis306 or on his Bruins blog at estevanmercury.ca/ bruinsbanter.

Chargers win silver The Estevan Power Dodge Chargers earned second place in the Regina Female Challenge tournament on the weekend. The bantam A squad posted a 4-0 record in a mostly dominant roundrobin before losing 3-2 to the South West Cyclones in the final. Estevan took one-goal leads twice in the game, but each time the Cyclones came back to tie it. Finally, the Cyclones scored the tournament-winning goal with 55

seconds left in regulation. Prior to that, the Chargers had beaten the Cyclones 4-1 in their opener. They also hammered the Regina Wild 9-0, dumped the Prairie Storm 9-5 and blanked the Regina Capitals 5-0 in round-robin action. There were seven teams in the tournament. The Chargersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next action comes this weekend, when they hit the road to play the Storm and the Fort Quâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Appelle Flyers.

Estevan Mercury

Bantam A Bruins play at Estevan to host WMBL Minot tournament game in 2013 The Estevan Century 21 bantam A Bruins posted a 1-2 record at a tournament in Minot over the weekend. The first game was a 6-1 walloping of the Minot Wolves. Hunter Piche led the Bruins with a hat trick and Colein Poole, Keaten Tarnes and Prestin Bergen

also scored. Zack Miller was in goal. The outcome was reversed in the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second game, as they lost 6-1 to the Regina Stars, a league opponent. Sage Dayman had the lone Estevan goal, with Ethan Veroba tending the goal.

The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third game was much tighter, as they fell 3-2 to the Dickinson Outlaws. The Bruins ran into penalty trouble, playing shorthanded nine times. Poole and Piche had the goals for Estevan. The Bruins now have two weeks off before returning to league play.

The Energy City will play host to a Western Major Baseball League game next season. The Weyburn Beavers and Yorkton Cardinals are slated to face each other on June 10 at Lynn Prime Park. The WMBL is a collegiate summer baseball league with 11 teams in Saskatchewan and Alberta, including Weyburn, Yorkton, the Melville Millionaires, Moose Jaw Miller Express, Regina Red Sox, Saskatoon Yellow Jackets and Swift Current Indians.

The game is part of an effort by the Beavers to promote the sport in southeast Saskatchewan. They ran a clinic in Estevan in July this year and are expected to run another next season. Estevan Minor Baseball products Kris Keating and Dylan Lafrentz are expected to be back with the Beavers next year. Meanwhile, Estevan Minor Baseball is looking at the possibility of fielding a midget AA team next season. Several players are moving up from the provincial

bantam champion Haulers. Anyone interested in playing on a midget AA team is asked to contact Lindsay Clark at lindsay.clark@sasktel.net by the end of December. The Southeast Legacy Twins, the midget AAA team representing the southeast area, has gotten commitments from 10 returning players and will play in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League again. The Twins are still searching for a new head coach after Tom Copeland resigned from the position.

Estevan Regional Nursing Home Auxiliary report Submitted by Shirley Graham Auxiliary Secretary The Estevan Regional Nursing Home Auxiliary held their Christmas tea and bake sale on Friday, Nov. 30. It was of some concern that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen at all, since the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lock downâ&#x20AC;? was only lifted on Wednesday. However, everything went very well, and so, on behalf of the residents and the auxiliary, I would like to extend many thanks to: All those who attended, those who baked, those who made purchases at the sale, those who served, including our friend Lori from the United Way. Appreciation also to the staff who made the great dessert that was

at Smittyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The nursing home auxiliary members would like to extend their wishes to all for a very happy Christmas season and blessings for the New Year.

nouncing the excitement yet to come. We are very excited to welcome two new residents to Hill View. Wynne Gonos has joined us from Creighton Lodge and Rose Mary Murphy from Sussex Arms. Their loss is our gain and we are looking forward to getting to know and love these ladies as they join our HVM family. We know that they will be a great asset to our home. I am embarrassed to be so far behind with tributes to my residents that have passed away. Life can get in the way, yet I feel it is so important that I write even a few lines about our dear residents to honour them and their lives they shared with us. Tony Meunier, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little Tonyâ&#x20AC;? as we liked to call her, moved into Hill View on March 5, 2010. She settled into House 2 with no problem at all and soon became an intregal part of our life and activities. She was not even close to five feet tall and as tiny as could be, yet she commanded respect and kept us all on out toes. Tony became fast friends with Mary Davies and ironically they were both the same size. We would see the two little ones walking up and down the hallways together or sitting on the swing out front holding hands, both dangling their legs as they were too short to reach the ground when sitting. They were always together, yet Tony was the leader. She would advocate for Mary and come rushing into my office with Mary in tow and ask for something that she felt was important for her. They were inseparable and brought each other much joy. That was a very special bonding to form at

that stage in life - it was a precious gift. Tony was an excellent seamstress and had her own sewing machine in her room. She helped sew many of the crafts we made and sold at our sales. She did a beautiful, professional job and you could often hear the humming of her machine when you passed by her room. Tony was very kind-hearted and gave to numerous charities. She was generous to a fault and blessed others with what she could. She loved her family and was so proud of her granddaughter Lisa and daughter Odette. They were an excellent and supportive family and we thank them

for their kindness to us. Tony must have known that her time to leave us was near because the day before she passed, she had a long talk out on the swing with Mary and told her that when she had to leave her, that she did not want Mary to grieve, but to be happy for her as she would then have no more pain. She told Mary that she was very tired of struggling, that it would be peaceful for her when she was gone. She encouraged Mary to be strong and told her to take care of her walker for her. I think that it is so amazing this frail, little lady could so love her best friend that she could comfort her in such a way

and prepare her for what was to come. The very next day, Oct. 2011, Tony peacefully went to be with her maker. She had a strong faith in God and I know that He met her with open arms as she ran into His presence. Little Mary was brave and told us that she promised Tony she would not be sad and she did her best to honour that promise. Though it is difficult for us to see Mary without her faithful companion, and we miss her very much we know that Tony now walks hand in hand with her new best friend in heaven and I am sure she is still watching over little Mary.

We have stepped over the threshold of a new month that will hasten the ending of yet another year. It is hard to imagine that Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday is only weeks away. There is a lot of hustle and bustle at Hill View Manor as we prepare for this festive season. Most of the trees are set up and decorated, our Frosty the Snowman is dancing and singing in the front entrance, making some residents happy and irritating others. I will leave him for a few more days then lend him to my grandchildren to enjoy. We will soon be blessed with carollers and choirs proclaiming the good news of Christmas and anointing our ears with beautiful melodies. I love the old traditional songs like Silent Night and Star Of The East, yet they have so many new ones out that make no sense to me at all. Guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m old fashioned! November was busy as Hill View hosted a Remembrance Day program for our dear veterans. There were also grandbuddy visits, a pub day, volunteers entertaining, baking and the list goes on. We thank Kay Hemus who graciously came in on the 11th and presented the movie A League of Their Own. She made Welsh cakes for the residents and best of all had Elsie Earl, who was

one of the actual ball players that the story for the movie was written about, speak and answer questions. Elsie is an amazing lady and we offer our thanks to her and Kay for giving our residents an opportunity to take part in such a wonderful afternoon. We are excited when volunteers take precious time to give of themselves for our residents. If my belief that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we reap what we sowâ&#x20AC;? is true, they too, will someday be blessed in return. Our birthday party was held on Nov. 29 and we honoured our recipients of yet another year. Those recognized were Bill Koch, who was 99 years young, as well as Katherine Winter, Olga Hill and Evelyne Johnson. We wish them health and happiness in the coming year. Katherine Winter hosted a come and go tea in honour of her 95th on Saturday, Nov. 24 when numerous friends and family stopped by to offer birthday greetings and remenisce. It was a nice day enjoyed by all. On my way to work this morning I was once again in awe of the beauty of nature. The silver sparkle of trees blanketed with frost, the crunching sound of snow underfoot and the freshness of breath as it warms the cool air. All these wonders so often taken for granted can be breathtaking if one allows themselves the moments to enjoy. Each day we will see more decorations adorning homes as Christmas approaches, an-

Home plan of the week DRAMATIC VAULTED CEILING GREAT ROOM Plan No. 5-3-678 This spacious threebedroom home is designed with a large covered entry marked by wooden beams and pilasters that support its sloping roof. Through double doors, the foyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceiling is also sloped, a feature that is echoed by the great roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dramatic vaulted ceiling and out to a covered patio at the back of the home. A formal dining room is located to the left of the foyer. Both areas are separated from the great room by archways. The great room includes a gas fireplace flanked by entertainment units and enjoys access through french doors to the covered patio. The roomy kitchen includes a large island with a four-seat eating bar along one side and a bar sink at one end. A window over the double sink will let in lots of natural light, and the L-shaped counter configuration will save steps for the cook. A phone desk will provide room for a computer as well, and a pantry is located nearby. In the space connecting the double garage, set at an angle to the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main wing, are a powder room and a laundry room, which can double as a mudroom. The garage includes a motorcycle bay. Stairs lead to the bonus room above, which could provide space for a home office, a studio or a fitness room. In the sleeping wing, the master suite is located at the back of the home for privacy. A window with an extra-wide sill, perfect for a

On the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exterior, the vertical board-and-batten finish in the gables is repeated on the garage doors. Horizontal siding and both unpainted and painted wood trim, plus cut-stone accents, lend the home an aura of casual elegance. This home measures 90 feet, six inches wide and 76 feet, seven inches deep, for a total of 2,188 square feet of living space, plus the 400-square-foot bonus room. Plans for design 5-3-678 are available for $746 (set of five), $835 (set of eight) and $890 for a super set of 10. Also add $30 for Priority Post charges within B.C. or $55 outside of B.C.

Andrew Deren February 13, 1926 December 9, 2009 It isn’t what I write It isn’t what I say It’s how I feel deep inside As I think of you today Your presence I miss Your memory I treasure, Loving you always, Forgetting you never. - Sadly missed and forever loved, June. Bill Graham January 6, 1927 December 8, 2004 Memoriam for Dad Written by son Norman You didn’t want to leave us, You fought so not to go, The choice however wasn’t yours, God came and took you home. We thank you for our lives you gave, You worked as hard as any man, We miss your laughter and advice, We miss your skillful hand. You will never be forgotten, Even as the years go by, We all think of you often, It was so hard to say goodbye. - Lovingly remembered by Shirley, Norman, Pat, Duane, Randy and Families.

December 5, 2012 B17 OBITUARIES Ronald John Gallaway 1925 - 2012

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Ron Gallaway of Estevan, Sask., on Friday, November 23, 2012. He will be greatly missed by his loving wife Marguerite after a wonderful marriage of 61 years. He will also be missed by his children: Don (Lorie-Gay), Joan (Brian Wesley), Dave (Kim), Beth (Mark Gorchynski), and by grandchildren: Brian (Jill Staniec), Christopher, Rob (fiancĂŠe Ashley Senchuk), Adam and Jenna Gorchynski; and by his sister, Marjorie Christie in Ontario. Ron was born April 26, 1925, and lived his entire life in Estevan. He was a graduate of the School of Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan, and operated a successful family farm outside Estevan for over 50 years. Through his life, Ron contributed countless volunteer hours that enriched his local community and the province. Many organizations benefited from his membership and his leadership. He was an elder of St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Estevan for fifty years. He chaired the Estevan Agricultural Society Board, the Wheat Pool Committee, the Estevan Art Gallery Board, the Estevan Public School Board, and the Comprehensive School Board. He was a member of the District Agricultural and Development Board, the Hildahl Rural Telephone Company, and the Estevan Rotary Club.

Will the City complete some areas more than once in a major snowfall before all streets are completed? Yes, if the Priority 1 and 2 become impassable those streets would be cleared of snow again to ensure that trafďŹ c can move. Can home owners blow snow from their sidewalks, driveways and parking lots into streets? No, property owners cannot as it makes it more difďŹ cult for the city to complete a proper cleanup; it causes the streets to be rougher than necessary, causes a hazard to motorists and is prohibited by the TrafďŹ c Bylaw. The only place this is permitted is the downtown business district as they have nowhere else to shovel the snow to.

Can we pile snow from the sidewalks on the streets? No, the only place this is allowed is the downtown business district as these buildings do not have any other area to move the snow to. Can home and business owners pile snow on their own private properties adjacent to alleys and streets?

access for snow removal equipment and have greater potential of being damaged by other vehicles and equipment. When are City snow dump areas used? The City Snow dump sites are operational from 6am â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 10pm, city equipment does not operate at these locations outside of these hours.

The City also asks that: Can snow be piled in city alleys and streets? No this eliminates access for garbage collection, ďŹ re protection and other emergency services and is prohibited by the TrafďŹ c Bylaw. However it is permitted in cul-de-sacs as long as the snow is piled in the centre of the cul-de-sac only as other piles of snow impact neighbors and makes snow removal more difďŹ cult. Can I park my spare vehicle or Motor Home on the Street? Yes, however vehicles are not permitted to be parked on any streets in excess of 24 hours and cause a lot of problems for snow removal and trafďŹ c. Can I park on the streets for less than 24 hours? Yes, however in the event of a major snowstorm we ask that all vehicles be parked in driveways or other areas where possible. In the event of a Major snowstorm the City plans to have all areas windrowed where required as soon as possible, providing equipment is operational. Please do not park your vehicles on the streets if possible as the vehicles limit

â&#x20AC;˘ Children are kept away from snow dump sites and piles. These are dangerous areas when equipment is working, as well as voids in the piles may collapse trapping children. â&#x20AC;˘ Please keep clear of snow clearing equipment and crews. If possible choose an alternate route to avoid delays. â&#x20AC;˘ Please keep back 20m of Sanding equipment, as they will be discharging sand at intersections of streets, lanes, and high trafďŹ c zones. â&#x20AC;˘ Please keep all emergency exits buildings clear of snow and ice. Your cooperation and patience is greatly appreciated

Yes, the TrafďŹ c Bylaw requires it as it makes it safer for pedestrians and those people that have to walk on the streets for work purposes such as letter carriers and meter readers. Also please make sure that extension cords crossing sidewalks to vehicles do not create trip hazards.

Yes, however make sure that the piles are not so high as to create a blind corner limiting visibility for pedestrians and motorist Can home and business owners pile snow on existing windrows? No, this creates visibility and driving hazards, makes it more difďŹ cult and time consuming to remove the windrows and is prohibited by the TrafďŹ c Bylaw.

How does the City determine what streets get cleaned ďŹ rst? The City classiďŹ es the streets into 3 priorities: Priority 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arterial Streets Streets with high volumes of trafďŹ c and main routes through and around the City such as 4th Street â&#x20AC;&#x201C; average daily trafďŹ c volume of more than 8,000. Priority 2 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Collector Roads Streets with somewhat lesser volumes of trafďŹ c and designed to route trafďŹ c from local streets to the Arterial Streets such as Nicholson Road â&#x20AC;&#x201C; average daily trafďŹ c of between 1,000 and 8,000. Priority 3 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local Streets Streets that generally only serve the people that live in that area with low volumes of trafďŹ c and mostly residential â&#x20AC;&#x201C; less than 1,000 average daily trafďŹ c volume. Within Priority Three there are some streets that are extremely narrow and have to be windrowed and transported away in the same day such as Grundeen Crescent.

When does the City start to clean up after a snow storm? Public Works monitors the streets and the major response to a snow storm does not generally start until it has stopped snowing. It is dangerous due to reduced visibility and ineffective to clear Priority 1 areas more than once if the streets are passable. Streets are monitored and intersections will be sanded or trouble areas cleared if necessary.

What is the goal of the snow removal policy? The goal of the snow removal policy is to provide a timely, adequate and cost effective level of service so that streets are passable and vehicles can move in the City. Once the initial clean-up is completed standard procedure of Public Works is to continue to widen and grade streets. A copy of the full policy is available at www.estevan.ca
