CT scan bid backed by Sun Country The board of directors of the Sun Country Health Region are backing a proposal that was taken to the Health Ministry in early January, seeking a CT scanner for St. Joseph’s Hospital in Estevan. Asked by The Mercury if the board members were fully apprised of the proposal and its implications, board chairwoman Marilyn Charlton said they were, and they fully backed the Energy City’s bid. She spoke to the issue on Jan. 30 following the board’s monthly business meeting. The idea that was taken directly to Health Minister Dustin Duncan was that Estevan, through the St. Joseph’s Hospital

Foundation, would make the capital purchase of the $1.2 to $1.5 million CT scanning device that aids the X-ray and imaging units in diagnosing all types of injuries and medical conditions. Sun Country, and by extension, the Health Ministry, would only be responsible for the cost of operating and maintaining the unit. Shortly after visiting with Duncan, St. Joseph’s executive director Greg Hoffort said he felt the local delegation caught Duncan’s attention with the unique prospect of a local committee shouldering the capital purchase burden in an effort to get CT service into southeast Saskatch-

Marilyn Charlton ewan. Citing the proposal as one that would be very nearly impossible to say no to, Hoffort said he felt the local committee made their pitch and engaged in a good two-way discussion with Duncan and his ministry officials. In a later interview with The Mercury, Duncan

admitted that the offer and suggestions did grab his attention as well as that of his officials and the matter was receiving serious review. “The proposal came in a bit different from what we expected. Of course there is no normal process when requesting a CT scanner,� Duncan said at the time. The health minister went on to say the deliberations would then focus on whether the hospital in question is meeting their benchmarks in terms of patient volumes and if a scanner would help them raise that bar to a new service level. The local committee members who visited with Duncan did include one

Sun Country board member, Gary St. Onge. Along with Hoffort and St. Onge, the other delegates making the trip to Regina were Estevan MLA Doreen Eagles, Estevan Mayor Roy Ludwig and St. Joseph’s board chairman Don Kindopp. St. Joseph’s is considered an affiliate facility within the Sun Country Health Region and the largest such health-care facility in the region that serves approximately 59,000 people. Charlton said the Sun Country board, although they had only one member representing them at the meeting, was kept aware of the proposal and lent their support to the Estevan and area bid.

sumption reached a new level, the same wasn’t true for SaskEnergy and their spokeswoman said some of that could be attributed to more recent focus on energy efficiencies in homes and businesses, but the demands were also huge in that “warm-up� sector as well. Tyler Hopson, communications officer for SaskPower, said the company hit

a new peak production/consumption demand around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday with 3,379 megawatts of power. Last year’s highest demand was 3,265 megawatts. The increase in demand was still well within the company’s ability to produce electrical power since the current production for SaskPower is just over 4,100 megawatts. A t S a s k E n e r g y,

spokeswoman Vanessa Beaupre, said the demand for their natural gas product peaked at 1.1 petajoules. One petajoule equals one million gigajoules. This was below an all-time high demand, but 20 per cent higher compared with the biggest demand day last winter. “No records set, but we had a peak week and a big 24-hour stretch,� Beaupre

SaskEnergy stops short of setting new mark ⇢A2 And those people are building using more energy efficient models, heating units and appliances. “The average residential customer used 130 gigajoules a year five or more years ago. Now it’s around 107 thanks to energy efficiencies,â€? Beaupre said. Hopson said SaskPower was dealing with a number of reported power outages during January

as well as the production pressures. “We had a few in the rural southeast on Tuesday. Some got back up quickly, some were off for a longer period. A lot of that was due to the fact that crews were slowed down by weather conditions,� he said. He said more specifically recent power outages in communities such as Torquay (about a month ago) were partially due to oilfield power demands,

but that system has now been reinforced and the line re-energized and plans are being made to rebuild a substation in the district to ensure a stable supply of electricity in the region. “One thing we do is encourage customers to let us know, especially if they think it’s an individual home and/or rural properties, because then that gives the crew an idea of where to find the fault. Overall though, there is a more

Hopson said the Crown company will welcome a new major power source later this year with the opening of a gas-fuelled power plant near North Battleford and the Queen Elizabeth Power Station in Saskatoon is adding some power production capacity. A new co-generation project near Spy Hill is already adding 86 megawatts into the grid while the Prince Albert pulp mill contributes a further 10

than adequate supply for the provincial grid. There is some aging with some areas of infrastructure, but that’s addressed.� Hopson said the recent demand on SaskPower was for the same reason as the demand was high for SaskEnergy. “Obviously the cold weather, and when you tie that in with increased economic activity and tie-ins with added population, the demand grows.�

megawatts. The traditional steady, coal-fired units at Shand, Boundary Dam and Poplar River continue to produce at expected levels to provide base load capabilities and SaskPower has not had to ask any of its major industrial power users to curtail their activities for fear of surpassing the peak capacity level since even the record-setting demand was well below best production level.

French immersion students Water bills going up get their classroom back More patience than was initially expected was needed as the students at Sacred Heart/SacrÊ Coeur awaited the completion of a new classroom. Since the beginning of the school year in 2011, 12 students in the Grade 7-8 French immersion class have been holed up in the library, with a small learning space cordoned off from the rest of the room. The school’s student population has been on the upswing, with the younger French immersion grades no longer needing to be split. There are enough students in Grades 1, 2 and kindergarten to fill the immersion classes. The boost in numbers prompted the plan to build a completely new room onto

the school. The senior class needed a new classroom, and while the original plan was for construction to be completed by September, some issues with the first contractor pushed the timeline back several months. Mary Ellen Barreth, the school’s principal, noted there are 12 students in the 7-8 split class that was working in a section of the library, but they completely moved into their new classroom on Jan. 29. “They are very happy, especially the Grade 8 students because last year they were in Grade 7-8 and in April, they heard we were getting the new classroom,� said Barreth. “They had to move into an empty class-

room down in the elementary end for their Grade 7 year. They were there all year, and thinking they were going to move into a new classroom in September. They’ve been waiting a year and a half and they are very excited to get back down into the senior end.� Now that the class has moved out of the library, it’s not only a benefit to those students but also the rest of the school. With the library back to normal, the access students have allows greater opportunity for using the computers to do research and study. “We have more opportunity for students to go into the library during class time to use the computers in the back for coming in just doing

Estevan residents will soon be paying more for water and other utilities. Council passed a 10 per cent utility rate hike at its Jan. 28 regular meeting. The hike is across all utilities, meaning not only will water rates increase, sanitary sewage and storm drainage rates will also rise. News of the rate hike was not a surprise as the budget presented in November contained a significant deficit and it was recommended that council institute an increase. Even with the 10 per cent hike it was projected that the utility fund would still have a deficit. Although many call the hike, a form of backdoor taxation, the City has long maintained that is the not the

general work in there,� added the principal. “When there was a classroom in there, that space wasn’t available to them. Even for teacher aides and those people to come in to work with individual students, or kids could go in and write a test, it’s far more available for the whole school community.� Barreth said she welcomes the prospects of further growth, even if it does at times mean a temporary inconvenience for students and teachers. “It’s space that we absolutely needed in our school, and we look forward to more kids and more expansion. Our English tract as well is growing. It’s really exciting for us,� said Barreth, about the school’s growth that also includes a new pre-kindergarten program.

Part of proceeds goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Canada

in Estevan as the utility fund is completely separate from the general fund. The bylaw to put the increase into effect was given three readings at the meeting and passed unanimously. A second bylaw that would also have hit Estevan residents in the pocketbook was passed at the meeting by error. Council passed a solid waste utility charge that would have led to a $5 increase per household. However, City manager Jim Puffalt said the bylaw was in error and the City’s intention was to increase the fees at their landfill, not for garbage pickup. Puffalt said the bill would be repealed in the near future.

Gas scare at St. Mary’s School The staff and students of St. Mary’s School were forced to evacuate for a time on Friday amid fears of a natural gas leak. The Estevan Police Service received a report of a possible gas leak on Friday morning. Shortly after receiving the report members of the Estevan Fire Rescue Service, EMS personnel and SaskEnergy and SaskPower employees were dispatched to the school. All of the teaching staff and students were safely evacuated from the school and taken to Spruce Ridge School. Upon further investigation, it was determined that there was no natural gas leaking into the school and the odour that raised the concern was caused by sewer gas. There were no injuries reported. Once the school was cleared, everyone was allowed to return and classes resumed in the afternoon. EPS Chief Del Block thanked St. Mary’s staff and students for the professional and orderly evacuation of the school.

Collage returning to Estevan in 2013 After a one-year absence, the Collage Multicultural Festival will be returning in 2013. While speaking to Estevan city council during their Jan. 29 regular meeting, Michel Cyrenne, the executive director of the Estevan Chamber of Commerce, announced that Southeast Newcomer Services has taken on the event with plans to hold it in late September. Held in 2010 and 2011, Collage did not run last year as no local group stepped forward to hold the event. Cyrenne told council that the first Collage was headed up by Community Futures Sunrise and the Saskatchewan Southeast Enterprise Region with support from a number of other local groups. However CF Sunrise felt that Collage didn’t fit their mandate and backed away from the event which prompted the Estevan Chamber of Commerce to intervene and hold the event in 2011. Although it was a successful event, Cyrenne said the chamber also felt that Collage didn’t fall under their mandate and elected not to

Feeling that it was still a worthwhile event for our increasingly diverse community, Cyrenne said the chamber spoke to Southeast Newcomer Services about hosting Collage, an arrangement that makes sense as they deal with the

local immigrant community on a daily basis. Cyrenne said the SENS board of directors met to discuss Collage and made a request for funding which was approved by the Ministry of the Economy which oversees the newcomer gateways in

the province. “Just last week we met with a couple of employees from newcomer services … and they are now in the process of planning the event for the latter part of September. They are hoping to coincide with Culture Days,” Cyrenne said. “We definitely think it’s a fantastic event, great for the community especially with the way we are growing now and we have a more diverse population. We are quite excited to work with them to bring this event back as a part of our community.”

While in council Cyrenne also provided an update on three other matters involving the chamber. For the past couple of years, the chamber has been working on improving signage throughout the city to help visitors and new residents get around better. The chamber received funding from the City to hire a firm to conduct an audit which is now underway. “(The group conducting the study) came in and drove around the community and got a better understanding of

the city itself and got a better understanding of some of our common concerns related to signage and accessibility,” he said. A first draft of a signage plan has been completed by the group and forwarded to the chamber and City. The two sides are currently reviewing it and will eventually send it back to the firm for final revisions. “(The improved signage) will make our community safer and more navigable,” he said. Cyrenne also touched on their work to strengthen the local hotel association and their attempts to get all of the hotels in the city involved. A consulting firm has also been hired to work on developing the association and the chamber expects to receive the first draft of their plan in the near future. The final topic was the economic development plan which the chamber is working on. Cyrenne said a first draft of the plan was completed in December by economic development officer Manpreet Sangha. The chamber’s economic development committee was expected to go over the draft on Thursday and will meet again in one month to go over submissions from local groups. From there a second and final draft will be completed which will be presented to council.

Sun Country staff movements When the board of directors of the Sun Country Health Region gathered in Weyburn Jan. 30 for their monthly business session, they were once again given updated information regarding movement among some of the professional classifications within the region. Marga Cugnet, CEO

13022TW00

for Sun Country, reported that they had hired five registered nurses and four licensed practical nurses along with two out-ofscope employees during the past month. During that month though, there were six RNs who tendered their resignations along with four LPNs, one mental health therapist,

one laboratory and X-ray technologist and one outof-scope staff member. Sun Country entered six doctors into the assessment program created by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan and if all six are accepted, it is expected they will be ready to practise in May. The six have opted to practise in Arcola, Oxbow, Kipling and Estevan with two deciding to work in Weyburn. In other health-related issues, it was noted that regulation changes have been implemented for the Occupational Health and Safety Act and health officers may issue fines for non-compliance which means that as many as 600 designated staff members in Sun Country will require training on new procedures in 2013. The Workers Compensation Board has awarded Sun Country a certificate of achievement to recognize reduced work-related injuries and their associated costs. The success was due primarily to a revised return to work program that will save the region as much as $60,000 this year. One speech language pathologist for children and one assistant are now providing services to 75 children in Estevan and Weyburn with a wait list of 59. It is hoped that with the hiring of another pathologist, the wait list will be reduced to zero. It was also reported that all ambulances are to be equipped with automatic vehicle location transponders which should assist in improving response time. The cost is $1,000 per unit, with the Ministry of Health agreeing to pay the monthly operating costs.

Patient safety and risk management report filed with Sun Country board When the topic of patient safety and risk management arises, the Sun Country Health Region has the incident reports and statistics to back up claims that they are making significant progress in the reduction of such things as falls, medication errors and critical incidents. That is an accomplishment within a region that serves nearly 60,000 residents with 2,300 employees. The Sun Country’s board of directors received a first-hand report from Felecia Watson, spokeswoman for the patient safety and risk management sector on Jan. 30 during their regular monthly business session. Watson spent some time discussing key infection control practices and

keeping tabs on medications through reconciliation reports. She said there is a large educational factor going into each quarterly report as well. When patient safety is compromised, the reports are noted and if they require response and action plans, they are incorporated before they are filed for statistical purposes. Safety and risk management activities are coded from one to four with four being the most serious in terms of a tragic incident and potential litigation issues. Sun Country CEO Marga Cugnet informed the board that the quarterly reports from each region are shared across the province. Watson said that in Sun

Country there are seven open claims pending as far as the risk management department is concerned. Three of those involved legal action. Watson said that staff quality improvement reports become an integral part of the reporting process too. In future reports, she said the numbers of clients and patients waiting for long-term care placement will be included. The outline handed to the directors included statistics dating back to 2010, indicating very few critical incidents (no more than two per quarter), and more serious code reports at between two and four per cent. None were at Code 4 on the scale. Medication errors num-

bered anywhere from 58 to 142 per quarter while patient/client falls were between 301 and 477 per quarter. During the early part of the meeting, board chairwoman Marilyn Charlton introduced John Knoch, the health region’s new chief financial officer, who shared the finance and management report with outgoing CFO Pam Haupstein who will now be resuming her previous duties in the finance department of the health region. Cugnet reported that four medical students are currently working in the region as part of their educational requirements. The board also accepted the resignation of director Vern Palmer, who it was

noted, has moved out of the region to another part of the province. Knoch told the board that the three major capital projects currently underway are moving along as expected with one of them, the long-term care facility in Redvers nearing the completion date. He said the construction phase is now 80 per cent completed and the facility should be ready to accept residents in the spring. Radville’s long-term care and health-care facility is between 40 and 50 per cent completed and could be ready for occupancy by late summer. It has been held up due to shortages of skilled trades people. The Kipling hospital project is now at the design presentation stage, Knoch

said. Three designs have been selected for further scrutiny and a decision regarding the winning concept will be made in March. That will be followed by an evaluation and selection of contractors and vendors for the construction work which should begin this coming spring. The board also acknowledged and set the stage for upcoming meetings with the board of directors of St. Joseph’s Hospital, an affiliated facility within the region, and with representatives of the Saskatchewan Association of Registered Nurses. The board is scheduled to meet again on Feb. 27 in the Conference Room at their central office at Tatagwa View in Weyburn.

Spontaneous attack leads to further jail time Following a bizarre encounter in which a stranger attacked a man who was tobogganing with his twoyear-old son, the accused will spend three further months in jail. Kevin Robillard appeared in Estevan provincial court on Feb. 4 via videolink, having previously pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon. Robillard is currently serving a 110day sentence that began on Jan. 11. The incident in ques-

tion happened on Dec. 18, while Robillard was walking his 65-pound dog, and he encountered the victim sledding with his son. The dog wasn’t on a leash, and the victim demonstrated some concern over the unleashed dog to Robillard. After a verbal disagreement between the two, Robillard began to use his metal dog leash as a whip, striking the victim several times, causing severe bruising beneath the victim’s winter coat.

In order to protect his son, the victim distanced himself from the boy during the attack as he was being struck. Robillard then left the scene with his dog. When police approached him later, he denied the events and gave a false name, leading to an obstruction of justice charge as well. In giving his decision, Judge Karl Bazin noted Robillard’s criminal record dates back to 1983 and includes assault causing

bodily harm convictions. The Crown and defence presented a joint submission for Bazin to consider in sentencing. They called for a two-month jail sentence, served concurrently with his previous jail sentence. Bazin said the submissions were made without full knowledge of the charges that were part of Robillard’s Jan. 11 sentencing in Regina. Seven separate charges led to that sentence. Bazin noted aggravat-

ing factors were that the incident involved a weapon and occurred in front of a child in a residential area that is often filled with children. Bazin also noted it was an attack on a stranger, not someone Robillard knew. “Mr. Robillard has had numerous chances over the years to take steps and stay out of trouble,� said Bazin. “His record shows little respect for the law. As in this case, which is an unprovoked attack, on a

father with his two-year-old son, I find that a concurrent sentence of two months will have no practical consequences.� He said it would have no deterrent effect on Robillard. Bazin sentenced Robillard to a three-month consecutive jail sentence. Following jail time, he will be subject to a one-year probation order in which he is to have no contact with the victim. He must also provide a DNA sample.

What’s next in recreation? We can’t stop now and do the self congratulations routine. It’s time to move onward with the Energy City’s recreational facilities. Now that we have the finest arena of its size in southern Saskatchewan, there is a need to undergo some serious assessments regarding the rest of our recreational, cultural, sports and leisure facilities. Casting our first glance at Spectra Place’s neighbour, the leisure centre, we see how the public library appears to be handling an additional influx of business, but must be watched carefully so we don’t get caught off guard. The gymnasium portion of the centre needed to be expanded to accommodate an increased volume of people and programs. And it was. Ice availability is better now, with three separate surfaces for indoor skaters and a couple of outdoor facilities to treat casual users. Upgrades to the Icon Centre will be required sooner rather than later and who knows how long the ancient Civic Auditorium and its aging ice plant will last. We’ll have to keep an eye on it. It has become obvious that the leisure centre’s indoor pool is inadequate to serve growing needs. With burgeoning water polo, synchronized, lane and competitive swimming classes as well as growing aqua exercise programs, the pool can’t handle the demands and with overuse will come additional maintenance and operating costs. It might be time to consider a companion pool, built as an extension to the current pool, or an outdoor facility, next to the leisure centre or perhaps a revival of the once very popular outdoor pool at Woodlawn Regional Park. What better way to plan the future than to inject a water-based activity centre in the park that is being rejuvenated after the devastating floods. The abandoned chuckwagon track area is being surveyed for campers and plot development. An outdoor pool using modern construction and maintenance methods would attract campers like bees to a blossom. A move in that direction would only enhance the reconstruction efforts being made at the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course, in fact, a little design innovation could probably bring the two together quite nicely. We’ve certainly learned how destructive water can be when it’s uncontrolled ... now it’s time to make it work positively. Estevan’s volunteers have done a fabulous job in building new ballparks that we can point to and use with pride. Progress is being made on bringing football fields and soccer pitches up to code. The Boundary Dam recreational site has quickly become Woodlawn Regional Park South. Now some additional work needs to be done with the boat launch there and we need not remind anyone of the need to get some positive activities going around the Rafferty Reservoir launching area with an eye toward future camping and cottage development. Once again we should use the water that is available to us as an advantage, not as something to be ignored or feared. That flood was a huge anomaly that won’t happen again anytime soon. With a great stock car track, mature playparks and city walking paths, we have much to be thankful for and still much to look forward to. We have some great facilities at our disposal now and they attract potential new citizens and curious visitors. They are an integral part of our economic well-being. That is why it is important that we not rest on laurels, but rather to keep our attention focused on the next big thing.

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

Rising property taxes a bad omen Perhaps it’s only appropriate that hints of rising property taxes are the first sign that the Saskatchewan Party government may be sailing towards troubled waters. The lowering of property taxes was really the first sign of good fortune for Premier Brad Wall’s government. Of course, we should emphasize that Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter was only speculating that the education proportion of property taxes is going up. That said, it would sure seem to be pretty solid speculation. “There may be an increase and I don’t know to what level yet, but we’re going to mitigate it as much as we possibly can,” Reiter told reporters at the legislature. To listen to Reiter talk, one might think that any such tax increase is simply a consequence of Saskatchewan’s prosperSERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

Random Bowl notes Talk about hyper hype. Contrary to America’s belief, it is not the most watched television extravaganza in the world. Soccer’s big games dwarf it. But I digress. I didn’t tune in to much of the 128 hours of pre-game hyperbole, but I did catch Jennifer Hudson singing America The Beautiful. The kids did better. I’m afraid that both Jenny and Alicia Keys, who attempted a funeral version of the national anthem, tried waaaay too hard. They sang beyond their vocal range and it showed. In fact, Alicia forgot to end the anthem and kept yodelling post mortem. Around 5:28 they kicked off on America’s version of the biggest event ever. Nothing. Kick goes through the end zone. That’s the NFL’s version of an exciting start. Second play, penalty, so no play. Third play, run over tackle, no gain. Four seconds of actual activity. Game clock indicates we’ve watched over a minute of “action.” Next play, pass out-ofbounds. Since NFL allows 40 seconds between plays, we’ve now apparently seen nearly two minutes of “action.” In actuality, we have seen one official four second play. Baltimore excites me when punt returner Jones decides to actually run instead of calling for the usual NFL “fair catch,”

Norm Park All Things Considered which again means no meaningful activity other than watching 21 pudgy guys running around and then holding up, out of breath and looking for some sideline minion to squirt water in their mouths. Apparently they don’t know how to do that. At the 11:44 mark on the game clock, I observe a second exciting play. During the commercial breaks, seeing as how Canadians aren’t allowed to watch the clever new ads and I don’t use YouTube to stream nothing ... I watch an old classic, Auntie Mame, and Big Bang reruns. Both teams deploy the no huddle offence, but they still take almost a minute to run each play. The QB’s call, recall, check-off, recirculate around the backfield, recall and yell. The centre eventually releases his hold on the ball. I decide to stick around to see Beyonce. Baltimore leads 7-0. Pitta is catching for the Ravens and somebody (I heard it as Potty) is blocking for the 49ers. It turns out the guy’s name is Uipatta. But I like my version better. Pitta versus Potty, I’m begging for entertainment..

ity. Well, the kindest thing one can say is that it’s a little more complicated than that. If property taxes go up, it will really be because of the choices the Sask. Party government has made. You see, 2013 is a property reassessment year in Saskatchewan - really, the first since the government eliminated local school boards’ taxation authority in 2009. For a couple of obvious reasons, it was a move that was heralded as a good thing by most everyone. First, nobody particularly liked paying taxes and having one less local government with the authority to impose taxation was a rather pleasing notion. Second, it was accompanied by fulfilment of the Sask. Party government’s 2007 policy to reduce education property taxes by more than 80 per cent on farmland and nearly 30 per cent on residential properties. Many of you in rural Saskatchewan, in particular, will recall former premier Lorne Calvert repeatedly telling the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities that the status quo was not on. Then, NDP governments would ignore tax relief come budget time. Well, Wall’s government not only came through on the Sask. Party promise, but also ensured that local school boards would simply not negate tax relief by applying their own local taxes. But then along comes Reiter’s news that the value of assessed home property in Saskatchewan has increased 67 per cent in the past four years and the new mill rate - at least when it comes to the education portion of property tax bills - may need somewhat of an adjustment.

Another exciting play ... I’m fully invested. I read during the old Ford and FedEx commercials. Then spot a new commercial, it’s bad. I miss a Kaepernick interception but it’s OK, they have four replays of it in slow motion while waiting for the next real play. Old boys club takes over at half-time. Too boring. Peanut butter and jam time for me. Ray Rice takes a break too. He’s run the ball three times ... he’s a tired multi-millionaire. Fake field goal ... that’s better. A guy named MacBeth makes a tackle. Hamlet arrives late and takes a penalty. (I made up the Hamlet part). Ray Lewis is yelling ... again. Seven more time outs. Beyonce arrives. She dances a lot, sings a little, great light and flash show. She’s working harder than any of the footballers and has better legs. Suggs makes a tackle. Ngata gets a penalty. More time outs. Approaching the two hour mark in the game, 6 minutes and 18 seconds of actual football. Lights go out after kick off return for exciting TD. And here’s the NFL’s official response to the media regarding the 34 minute delay: “We will have more information as it becomes available.” ‘Nuff said. Hey, at least the end was dramatic, but really, when do the CFL camps get underway?

“The province is going to do what we can to get as close to revenue neutral as we can,” Reiter said. “I can’t tell you that we’re going to eliminate that increase.” The thing is, though, property tax reassessments in the past were revenue neutral. Sure, some people’s taxes would go up, but others would go down, reflecting a saw-off for local governments that are legally required to balance their budgets. Now, Reiter is offering no such assurances that this year’s reassessment will be revenue-neutral. In fact, he’s pretty much saying it won’t be. The problem with what the minister had to say is he’s blaming the need for tax increases on increased property values. That is a bit of a red herring. Whether your house or your farmland is of more or less value has nothing to do with the services you require. Both the costs of schools and municipalities may be rising during this time of economic growth, but that has nothing to do with the value of your property. What does seem obvious, however, is that the Sask. Party is seizing on this assessment opportunity to make up for lost tax revenue. Perhaps more revenue is necessary to deal with the province’s growth, but the government should at least say that. Economic prosperity for both you and the province? Perhaps, but that’s not really what this reassessment tax hike is about. This very much looks like a Sask. Party government scrambling to balance its next budget.

Council Briefs News and notes from the January 29 regular meeting of Estevan city council Jayden Dayman was sworn in for his second term as the student representative on council. Jayden served for one semester in 2011. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Helen Fornwald, the Emergency Measures Office co-ordinator for the City, was before council to speak about a disaster management conference she attended in Winnipeg in November. Among the speakers was Ray Nagin, the former mayor of New Orleans who guided that city through the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Fornwald noted the conference touched on other more recent disasters such as the flooding that hit Saskatchewan and Manitoba in 2011 as well Superstorm Sandy. She added that one of the keys to dealing with a crisis situation is ensuring the proper information is provided to the public and touched on how social media is becoming an important communication tool. Fornwald also presented her annual report which focused on the

EMO activities of the past year. Among the items noted was a exercise on how to handle a plane crash at the local airport due to power failure and weather conditions. The exercise was to test the Estevan Emergency Planning Control group for readiness if a disaster were to occur. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ In his report, city manager Jim Puffalt said the recent Harlem Globetrotters appearance at Spectra Place was a success. Puffalt said over 1,500 people attended the game and added the next major event is the return of Hard Knocks MMA on March 1. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Council gave permission to leisure services to enter into a three-year herbicide control contract with Southeast Tree Care of Estevan. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ A report from leisure services was presented about the waiving of rental fees for non-profit groups using City facilities. Leisure Services receives a number of requests from groups look-

ing to use areas such as Spectra Place or the Civic Auditorium for their events. In the past when a request was made, it was forwarded on to council who made their decision on a case-by-case basis. In an effort to reduce any confusion, council asked leisure services to

speak with other communities on their practices and to recommend a policy to them. The recommendation from them was that all future requests for free usage of City facilities, equipment or services be denied. Any future requests should be charged

Legion pushing forward with renewed energy Estevan Branch No. 60 of the Royal Canadian Legion is approaching the remaining 11 months of 2013 with renewed vigour and more than a handful of new members. Troy LeBlanc, who assumed the presidency of the local Legion last September, was officially confirmed into that role at the installation ceremonies that were part of the Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual past presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner held Saturday night in the Legion Hall. Six new faces join LeBlanc at the executive table, along with a good sampling of veterans. The club will be welcoming 20 new members into the fold at the next regular meeting later this month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope the new members will be active because we want to continue to be a major presence in the city, especially with the Colour Party,â&#x20AC;? LeBlanc said. Newcomers on the board include Chad and Corinne Laviolette, Jim and Willie Forrest, Linda Betnar and Ed Schell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From what I understand, new members want to get involved in some community activities, especially on the sports and

One project LeBlanc said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to get underway is the establishment of a memorial wall, probably on the face of the Legion Hall on Fourth Street, or perhaps near the cenotaph, although he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;there are some red tape issues there. Apparently nobody is sure as to who actually owns the property the cenotaph is on ... us or the courthouse, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still like to build a memorial wall.â&#x20AC;? Peter Piper, president of Provincial Command, was the special guest of the Estevan Legion for the Saturday night installation. It was noted that Piper also serves on the executive of Dominion Command, giving Saskatchewan additional exposure at the national table.

Govâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t announces future funding for local rinks Community rinks across the province, including a number in southeast Saskatchewan, are benefiting from the Community Rink Affordability Grant launched in September. The government of Saskatchewan invested more than $1.6 million in 554 facilities in 387 communities through the program. Among the local facilities receiving money were Spectra Place, the Civic Auditorium and the Icon Centre as well as arenas in Bienfait and Lampman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased that so many communities took advantage of this grant,â&#x20AC;? Parks, Culture and Sport Minister

Kevin Doherty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paying the bills should be a little easier this season for the facilities that received funding, which is great. One of our governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main priorities is to enhance quality of life. Community rinks do just that. They provide people with a huge variety of social and recreational opportunities.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association is proud that we were able to play an important role in this program,â&#x20AC;? Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association board president Darrell Lessmeister said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As program administrators, we

were able to deliver the program in a timely, efficient manner and we are confident these funds are helping community rinks remain vibrant hubs for Saskatchewan communities.â&#x20AC;? The Community Rink Affordability Grant was launched September 10, 2012, following a 2011 election promise to support community rinks. Until December 21, communities, non-profits, schools, rink boards and First Nations registered their indoor rinks for the $2,500 per ice surface grant to help fund operating costs and minor capital upgrades.

Troy LeBlanc was officially confirmed as president of the Estevan Royal Canadian Legion branch on Saturday evening.

Further custody considered in youth sentencing Vehicle thefts and police chases could mean more time in custody for a young offender if it’s deemed legal. An Oxbow youth appeared in custody during Estevan provincial court on Monday for the sentencing hearing. The 17-year-old is guilty of a number of charges, including possessing a banned substance, motor vehicle theft, break and enter and dangerous

driving. The possession charge stems from an incident in which he was found with 39 or 40 morphine pills, with a street value between $800 and $1,600. A brother of one of his friends had a prescription that he no longer needed, and the friend gave the youth the pills when he offered to sell them. Other charges came from when he was released from a previous custodial

sentence of five months. Shortly after he was released, the youth was asked to leave a youth shelter he was staying at in Regina and eventually made his way to Camrose. After his opportunities there didn’t pan out, Social Services booked a bus ticket for him to come back to Regina. The youth didn’t pick up his ticket, as he decided to steal a car and drive it back to Oxbow instead. It

was this car that the Crown prosecutor said “led him onto a series of adventures.” After picking up a coaccused, he and the other youth led the RCMP on a chase, which the police abandoned. The youth decided to ditch the car and he broke into a Viterra shed. When he was found there by an employee, he fled, making his way to a farmyard where he stole a truck.

While attempting to drive back to Alberta, the RCMP caught up to him, and he again led them on a chase. The youth reached speeds of 180 km/h, before a spike belt was laid out on the road. After hitting that, he and the co-accused youth fled into a field, where they were caught by police dogs. The Crown suggested a further custodial term of between six and 12 months would be appropriate, but

the youth’s Legal Aid defence suggested it would be illegal to sentence the youth to jail time. He said the only option under the Youth Criminal Justice Act is for a community sentence, noting that the youth only served a custodial sentence previously because there were threats involved. The matter was adjourned to March 4, so both sides can submit case law supporting their arguments.

Estevan Mercury

Perfect attendance for new councillors The newest members of Estevan city council are setting a positive trend in their first months on the job. According to the 2012 council attendance report, the three councillors elected in October â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Greg Hoffort, Lori Carr and Kevin Smith â&#x20AC;&#x201D; did not miss a meeting over the final two months of the year. The report noted there were seven council meetings held in 2012 after the Oct. 24 municipal election. Councillor Chris Istace, who along with Dennis Moore and Brian Johnson were re-elected in October, was the only member of council to miss any of the seven meetings as he was absent from three due to work commitments. The report also contained the final 2012 attendance figures for the previous council. Former councillor Rodney Beatty had the worst attendance of the group, missing well over half of the meetings in 2012, a factor that many have speculated led to his

not being re-elected in October. Beatty, who revealed last year that he has been waging an ongoing battle with mental illness, missed eight meetings due to illness according to the report. He also missed one meeting while on vacation and one for work. Beatty was also marked as absent for five other meetings. Aside from Beatty, former councillor Lynn Chipley missed the most meetings. Chipley missed three meetings due to being sick, two while she was on vacation and one for work reasons. The remaining members of council all had impressive attendance totals. Moore missed just two meetings while Istace, Johnson and Roy Ludwig missed one apiece. Former mayor Gary St. Onge missed just three meetings in his final 10 months on the job.

Oil production hits record in 2012 Southeast leads the way Fuelled by the Estevan/Weyburn region, oil production in Saskatchewan hit a new record in 2012 according to statistics released by the Ministry of the Economy. In a press release issued last week, it was announced that crude oil production in the province reached 172.9 million

barrels in 2012, up more than 7 per cent from the previous record of 161.0 million barrels set in 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2012, Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil industry had an exceptional year,â&#x20AC;? Minister responsible for Energy and Resources said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our economy continues to be one of the strongest in the country, and this re-

cord year in oil production proves that we have the resources and business climate the industry is looking for.â&#x20AC;? Leading the record production was southeast Saskatchewan. According to information from the Ministry, Area 4 (Estevan/ Weyburn) led the province with 71.5 million barrels

of oil. Area 1 (Lloydminster) was second at 60.2 million barrels followed by Area 2 (Kindersley) with 22.2 million barrels. Area 3 (Swift Current) produced 18.9 million barrels. On a daily average basis, oil production was 473,600 barrels per day, up from the previous record

set in 2008 of 441,200 barrels per day. The oil and gas industry continues to be one of the largest contributors to the Saskatchewan economy, representing about 20.7 per cent of the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GDP. The combined value of oil and gas sales for 2012 was estimated at

$12.5 billion. This industry provides more than 34,000 direct and indirect jobs to people in the province. Saskatchewan is the second largest oil producing province in Canada and has an estimated 1.2 billion barrels of remaining established crude oil reserves.

CAA scholarships NDP calling for strategy to combat impaired driving in province Graduating high school students who need financial assistance to help them continue their education are invited to learn more about CAA Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scholarship program. Three annual entrance scholarships of $2,500 each are offered to students attending the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major post-secondary educational facilities - University of Saskatchewan, University of Regina and SIAST. Applicants must be either a CAA Saskatchewan member or child of a member, and be a resident of Saskatchewan. The official name is the CAA Saskatchewan Centennial Merit Scholarship. Applicants are evaluated on academic excellence, economic needs and other factors, including participation in extra-curricular activities or community involvement. The successful

candidates are determined by the educational institution. Application forms are available from each institution. Deadlines to apply are as follows: â&#x20AC;˘ University of Saskatchewan: Feb. 15 â&#x20AC;˘ University of Regina: March 15 â&#x20AC;˘ SIAST: Depends on start of program (Programs starting between July 1-Dec. 31, deadline is September 30 of the same year. Programs starting between Jan. 1-June 30, deadline is Jan. 31 of the same year). The CAA Saskatchewan Scholarship Program was established in 2006 as part of CAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to the progress and success of the province. CAA Saskatchewan also awards one scholarship to a CAA Saskatchewan employee or child of an employee.

The opposition NDP is calling on the provincial government to create a strategy to combat drunk driving. NDP SGI critic Danielle Chartier recently urged the Sask. Party government to listen to the chorus of voices calling for action and put in place a meaningful strategy to lower the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high rate of impaired driving. Saskatchewan has one of the highest rates of drunk driving. The issue is also a major problem locally as Estevan had almost 200 arrests for impaired driving in 2012. Speaking last week in Regina with Andrew Murie, CEO of MADD Canada, Chartier said impaired driving is a serious problem in Saskatchewan and the prov-

ince can no longer ignore it. MADD Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research shows the province has the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst per capita impaired driving death rate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;MADDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research and advocacy shows our province needs a real strategy and strong leadership to combat the high impaired driving rate,â&#x20AC;? Chartier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sask. Party government needs to do more than just reiterate what has already been done. We should lead the country in lowering the rate of impaired driving and save lives.â&#x20AC;? Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impaired driving contributed in part to an alarmingly high number of highway fatalities in 2012. The NDP believes a new strategy specifically

targeted at impaired driving can be the first step in reducing the number of highway deaths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have heard from everyday families that an impaired driving rate of 2.5 times the national average is

a clear sign the Sask. Party government must take action now to save lives.â&#x20AC;? Chartier thanked Murie for the opportunity to discuss MADDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas about dealing with impaired driving here in Saskatchewan.

No shortage of volume or variety for Estevan Police Service Large cocaine bust follows investigation Estevan Police Service members handled an interesting mix of incidents on Jan. 30 according to information released from their shift report. During one routine vehicle check, police noted a strong marijuana fragrance coming from the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior. A couple of men, aged 18 and 19 who were occupants of the vehicle were arrested and charged with being in possession of 5.8 grams of the controlled substance along with some paraphernalia. They now have a March 4 court date. A short time later, a 36-year-old man was arrested for being intoxicated in public. He drew the attention of police after he made several 911 calls in an attempt to contact his wife since he was afraid she was going to be angry with him for not phoning earlier. Police may have been able to impress upon him that not knowing a wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone number did not constitute a reason to phone the emergency response dispatchers. The man was released later after regaining sobriety and hopefully, his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone number. A vehicle being driven by a 32-year-old man was stopped due to his erratic

driving action. The smell of alcohol was evident so the driver was given a roadside breathalyzer exam and was subsequently issued a 24-hour driving suspension. On that same shift, police noted a 16-year-old male doing power turns on an icy road. He was charged with driving without due care and attention. In other policing activity, a response was made to a 911 call regarding a female owner of a residence who required assistance in an ongoing dispute with her tenants. EPS members provided some mediation services for the discussion

Baby boom continues in Saskatchewan Saskatchewan is clearly in the midst of a baby boom. The number of live births registered in Saskatchewan in 2012 has cracked the 15,000 mark for the first time in nearly a generation. To date, a total of 15,035 live births have been registered in the province, compared to 14,577 in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153; We h a v e n â&#x20AC;&#x2122;t s e e n a figure this high since 1991,â&#x20AC;? Minister responsible for Information Services Corporation Don McMorris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are coming to Saskatchewan for the opportunities that exist here and thanks in part to a rising birth count, our population has never been higher.â&#x20AC;? The most popular name for baby girls born in 2012 was Emma. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fourth year in a row that Emma took the top spot. The most popular name for baby boys born in 2012 was Liam, making it the number one name for boys for the third year in a row. Olivia and Ava were the second and third most popular names for baby girls in 2012, while Ethan and Carter were the second and third most popular names for baby boys in 2012. Elizabeth re-entered the top 20 list for the first time since 2010, taking the number 12 spot. Aubree/Aubrey (17), Brielle (19), Harper (20) and Amelia (20) all made it to the top 20 for the first time on record. Addison re-entered the top 20 list of baby girl names for the first time since 2009. Mya, Leah, Taylor and Sadie all fell from the top 20. For baby boy names, Owen took the number 10

spot after falling out of the top 20 last year. Benjamin (10) and Jack (14) also returned to the top 20 in 2012. Three names made the top 20 list for the first time on record: Dominic (15), Blake (18) and Bentley (20). Aiden, a name that has been popular for more than a decade, returned to the top 20 in 2012. Cole, James, Chase, Matthew, Hayden, Joshua and Caleb all dropped out of the top 20. This information is compiled and published each year by ISC, which administers the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vital Statistics Registry. The information does not include babies born outside the province to Saskatchewan mothers. To see the top 20 lists of baby names for 2012, visit www.isc.ca.

and the matter was eventually resolved without any further police action required. A truck that had been marred by a sharp object was the focus on a call to EPS on the night of Jan. 30. Numerous derogatory comments were scratched into the surface of the vehicle. Police were also asked to look into an incident regarding the theft of a purse from a vehicle that had been parked in the central part of the city. A disturbance at a lounge in the northeast area of the city resulted in police response, but the

people who had been engaged in the incident had departed prior to police arrival. A report of a man attempting to gain entry into a residence in the south central part of the city was received by EPS. When they arrived they discovered the man had left the scene. A 35-year-old Alberta man was arrested for being in breach of court ordered conditions. He was released after being charged for the breaching of the previous conditions as well as for being in violation of the Alcohol and Gaming Regulations Act. A dispute between two women and a man resulted in EPS members being dispatched to the south central area of the city. The matter was resolved with no charges being laid. A report of a domestic dispute in the southwest area of the city resulted in police attending the scene. A man and woman who were residents there were arguing, with alcohol being a factor. The 24-yearold female was arrested and lodged in cells until sober. A 34-year-old Estevan man was arrested for driving while disqualified. He was later released, but only

after he was given a 24hour driving suspension. A 52-year-old man who was located passed out in the lobby of a hotel in the east central area of the city was arrested and lodged in cells until sober. A loud argument that broke out in a hotel in the west central part of the city attracted police attention. Two men were located in one of the rooms and there was evidence of an altercation. Both were warned about their action, but no further policing activity was required. The staff at a hotel in the north central part of the city requested police assistance regarding several loud people. Police attended the scene and spoke to a man and a woman. The matter was resolved when the man returned to his hotel room while the woman was transported to a local residence at her request. On Feb. 1, police spotted a man driving a vehicle in the city, who they recognized as a person wanted by authorities. When they attempted to stop him, the Estevan resident fled from the vehicle. After a short chase on foot, the man was apprehended and placed in custody. He faces numerous charges from local police as well as be-

ing wanted on outstanding warrants. During a Feb. 1 day shift, EPS members seized a large volume of cocaine as a result of their ongoing investigation. The street value of the drugs was estimated to be about $100,000. The matter remains under investigation and further information will be released as it becomes available. During that eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shift, EPS members attempted to check out a vehicle that had just left a parking lot at a local business. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop for police, but after they followed it for several blocks, the 60-year-old driver, an Estevan resident, did stop and he was arrested and charged with impaired driving and for refusing to provide a breath sample. He has a late March court date. Later that same evening, EPS members checked another vehicle and found a small amount of marijuana in the possession of a 24-year-old British Columbia man. He was charged with being in possession of a controlled substance before being released on bail, with a scheduled court appearance.

Century 21 Border Real Estate earns national Centurion Award An Estevan real estate firm has won a national award. Century 21 Border Real Estate has captured Centurion Office status according to a press release from its parent company. The award is based on sales throughout a given year. “We’ve been striving to provide the highest level of service to each one of our customers,” said Lynn Chipley, owner

of Border Real Estate. “This award represents all the hard work our team has done in the past year. We’re very honoured to be recognized by Century 21 Canada and we’re looking forward to continuously providing the best service we can to our customers.” D o n L a w b y, t h e president of Century 21 Canada, praised the local operation for their success, calling them an inspiration to those in the Century 21

system worldwide. “The sales representatives at Border Real Estate have demonstrated the willingness and skills to serve clients with a serious commitment to professionalism and quality service,” Lawby said. Along with the award for the overall operation, five employees were also recognized. Terry Germain will receive the double Centurion Award and recogni-

tion as the number 3 agent in the Century 21 system in Canada for units sold. Chipley and Melony Dew both earned the Centurion Award while Dana Krienke, who is based out of Oxbow, earned the Ruby Master Award. Lisa Foley earned the Silver Master Award. The award to the offi ce will be presented at the Century 21 awards event in Saskatoon on March 7.

Wages continued to Sask. land values increasing rise through 2012 Saskatchewan workers had more money in their pockets during the month of November, according to the latest numbers from Statistics Canada. The report indicates Saskatchewan workers had a 3.7 per cent increase in wages in November of 2012 when compared with November 2011, the third highest percentage increase among the provinces. “The Saskatchewan economy continues to make strides, and more importantly, Saskatchewan

people are seeing the real benefits of positive economic growth,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “The rise in weekly earnings is significant as it helps to attract more people to our province who are looking for career opportunities.” Average weekly earnings in November 2012 were $930.97, an increase of $33.28 from a year ago; the second highest in Western Canada and above the national figure of $910.77. Occupied payroll jobs were

up 1.9 per cent (8,805) on a year-over-year basis, the third highest percentage increase in the nation. “This is an important measure of economic progress,” Boyd said. “The report provides good news for working people - higher wages - and more security as the number of payroll jobs continue to increase.” Boyd said the economic prospects for 2013 are bright as Saskatchewan is expected to have one of the fastest growing economies in Canada.

Saskatchewan’s prosperity is continuing to show itself in all kinds of areas. It was announced last week that the overall value of property in Saskatchewan has increased by 67 per cent over the past four years as the province’s population and economy continue to grow. Overall, the assessment of property in Saskatchewan has grown from $58 billion in 2009 to $97 billion in the 2013 revaluation year. “This huge increase shows the strength of Saskatchewan’s economy,” Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter said. “If you own property in Sas-

katchewan, chances are it is worth a lot more than it was just four years ago and you will see that reflected in your property assessment notice.” Properties are revalued every four years in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan’s property tax system levies taxes based on taxable property assessment. Both municipalities and the provincial government set property tax rates, with the education portion being used to pay for K-12 education. In 2009, the provincial government delivered the largest education property tax cut in Saskatchewan history, reducing education property taxes by more than

80 per cent on farmland and nearly 30 per cent on residential properties. Reiter said that since the education property tax is levied on the assessment of property, the province will need to take a close look at the potential impact of the dramatic increase in property assessments on taxpayers. “It is up to our government, along with strong leadership from municipal governments, to take a thoughtful approach in order to mitigate property tax increases as a result of revaluation,” Reiter said. “We will be doing that as part of the current budget process.”

More students means an upgrade to equipment With student bodies in Estevan growing steadily, playground equipment at the city’s elementary schools must keep pace. St. Mary’s School is dealing with the issue of equipment for its students as they near the end of their fundraising campaign for a revamp of their playground. Nadine Linthicum, of the school’s community council, has been involved in the fundraiser since it started in 2011, and she said the school’s growing number of students is the main concern for the current playground set-up. “What we have is in good shape, but the reason we decided to start the fundraiser is just the capacity,” said Linthicum. “There’s just not enough equipment for the number of kids we have now.” The school has increased its population in the last few years after incorporating pre-kindergarten as well as experiencing the regular growth in school size that others are seeing in Estevan. Linthicum said the equipment is fairly new, but is meant to accommodate a school of about 100-student capacity, while St. Mary’s now has about 250 students. The fundraising effort ended with a generous $8,000 the students brought in last week bumping up their total to just under $40,000. St. Mary’s and the SCC are looking to purchase a primary play structure, which

will be accompanied by a few tire swings. There are already tire swings at the school, but Linthicum said they are very popular and they could use more. “There are a couple of tire swings at the school now, but they actually have a class list for when you can play on the tire swings because they’re so popular. Each day a different grade gets the tire swings. It would be nice not to have to limit them on that.” The main play structure will include some slides and climbing equipment. The school hosted its final fundraiser Feb. 1 as the students got jiggy with it at the dance-a-thon. The event was almost postponed, or cancelled, because of what was thought to be a gas leak in the school on the morning of Feb. 1. Students were evacuated, but after crews came in to investigate, were allowed back in, and the festivities were able to go ahead. Linthicum said the students had input on what they wanted from the new equipment, and unsurprisingly, tire swings were on the top of their list. “Tire swings was by far the biggest request, and through the last year and a half we’ve had kids come and ask, ‘How’s that coming along?’And they’re very curious as to what’s going on.” The new equipment will add to what is already on the school’s property so the

students should have plenty to do outside without having to sign up for its use. Linthicum said they’ll try to buy the biggest play structure that is available in their price range. They are taking into consideration costs of shipping and any groundwork as well. She noted they received a community grant for $10,000 from the Spectra Foundation, and there is a caveat that those dollars must be spent by this March. She said they may have one final fundraiser but nothing yet is planned. “We thought we’d at least get the equipment bought, and if we can maybe do one more fundraiser before the end of the year for the groundwork in the fall (we may do that),” added Linthicum. Anyone wishing to make a donation to the new equipment may contact the school by calling 634-3541.

St. Mary’s School hosted it’s dance-a-thon fundraiser on Feb. 1, as students brought in $8,000 to push their fundraising total up to the $40,000 fundraising goal. Grade 2 student Krislyn Pylychaty and Grade 3 student Blayze Siebert were the top campaigners in the school last Friday.

Students at St. Mary’s School took part in last Fridays dance-a-thon with lots of color and glow sticks.

Prairie winter. It’s about 3,329 miles to Cancun from Estevan, and with five laps of the mall equalling a mile, each day there would need to be 594 laps walked in order to walk to the tropical destination by the end of the month. “ We ’ v e g o t s o m e morning walkers that are already going to partake by raising pledges. We’re inviting everybody who wants to warm their heart up to come down to the Shoppers Mall and raise funds for Heart and Stroke,” said Pickering. “Alongside the Warm Your Heart walkathon, we’re doing a person-toperson campaign, so we have over 40 canvassers going door to door here in Estevan,” added Tammy Doerksen, senior manager, fund development with the

Heart and Stroke Foundation. Canvasser kits were available at the mall and the material will continue to be on hand throughout the month. All funds raised support research, education and advocacy of heart issues. As for the walk to Cancun, Pickering said it’s a response to everybody escaping Estevan’s winter to attend warmer, southern climes. “Everybody’s getting tired of the cold, so we came up with the walk to Cancun to go along with the Warm Your Heart. It’s to get people to exercise and raise some money for Heart and Stroke,” said Pickering. He said participants can come as they please and walk as much as they want throughout February.

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former Bruins goalie Neil Little on his lengthy AHL career in Philadelphia.

Smith leads rally over Mustangs Winger scores four goals in win over Melfort Dylan Smith and Alex Cote combined for nine points, and the CanElson Drilling Estevan Bruins came from behind to defeat the Melfort Mustangs 6-3 on Saturday at Spectra Place. Smith scored four goals, Cote had four assists and the Bruins scored five unanswered tallies to earn their third victory in four games. With the win, the Bruins (17-24-3) moved into a tie for fourth place with the Kindersley Klippers, with two games in hand, entering last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home game against Yorkton. Smith, who now has nine goals and 16 points in nine games since his return to Estevan, said spirits are high with the Bruins raising their play down the stretch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never really been part of a dressing room thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so fired up after a win. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice,â&#x20AC;? he said. Bruins head coach Keith Cassidy told Smith before the game that he would score four goals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the right winger could have had more, with several other scoring chances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He called me into his office to give me a stick and asked me how many (goals) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got in it and I said three, and he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got four,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Smith said of the prophetic

chat. But the evening didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start on a promising note for the Bruins, who fell behind 3-1 to the fifth-place Mustangs after the first period. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a good period. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing we were concerned about. We know we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough shots on net in that first period,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After that, we just came in, sat down and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Calm down a little bit.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of veteran guys in there, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to calm the guys down.â&#x20AC;? Five minutes in, Jamie Miller got credit for Melfortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first goal when the puck ricocheted off defenceman Zach Douglas and in. Midway through the period, with the Mustangs on a 5-on-3 power play, Godric Tham sent a shot over the shoulder of goalie Curtis Martinu from the side of the net. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our first period tonight obviously wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t our best period, but a couple of fluky things happened. We score on our own net and then we go down 5-on-3 on some interesting calls,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. Three minutes later, at the 13:34 mark, Smith took a stretch pass from Leighton McLachlan to set up a breakaway and deked goalie Patrick Johnson on his backhand to get the

Bruins on the board. With less than three minutes to play, Brandon Sloanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrister found its way past a Bruin defenceman and past Martinu to make it 3-1. The Bruins bounced back with a dominant second period though, beginning five minutes in when Johnson made a reflex pad save on a long shot, only for the rebound to kick out to Matt Brykaliuk for an easy goal. With one minute left in the period, McLachlan made a diving play to break up a Melfort 2-on-1, leading to a rush the other way that ended with Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shot appearing to deflect off Hudson Morrison and in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think for Mac, that was one of his best games of the year right there. He was confident, he made the simple plays, he stepped up when he had the opportunity to and just played with confidence,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. Smith gave his club its first lead two minutes into the third period, when he buried a rebound blocker side on the power play. He would finish off the hat trick less than three minutes later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even give myself most of the credit. The guys Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing with just put me in great positions to score and our d-men, too, are getting the puck to the net and getting me

I think our lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominating enough that we have chances to have games like this till the end of the season.â&#x20AC;? Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth goal came on an empty netter with 13 seconds left. The Bruins outshot the Mustangs 47-35. Smith said it was important for his team to grab the win over Melfort after losing all three previous meetings to them, including

a well-played overtime loss on Jan. 19. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We dominated them all of last game (on Jan. 19). (Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win) shows that we can put the puck in the net. We struggled in Melfort, but (Johnson) played out of his head, he stood on his head the whole night in Melfort. We just need to keep battling and get to the good areas to score goals. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come,â&#x20AC;? he said. Cassidy added that the Bruins had to seize the opportunity against a sub-.500 team, especially after the Mustangs lost to Weyburn the previous night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was man-

datory to get this game. That team, in our building, after losing to Weyburn (on Friday), thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way we could walk out of here without the two points.â&#x20AC;? He also noted a difference in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s psyche when trailing, compared to earlier this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys were working hard before, but maybe we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that we could come back from a 3-1 deficit before. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it once or twice now and guys are starting to believe that we can do it and that we can be in every game. A little bit of belief goes a long way.â&#x20AC;?

Apex Bruins lose two on busy weekend The Estevan Apex Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three-game weekend began on a strong note. It ended with an unthinkable loss to a team with only two wins to date. The midget AA squad defeated the Prairie Storm 7-4 on the road Friday, then lost 6-4 to the first-place Notre Dame bantam Hounds on Saturday and 5-3 to the last-place Yorkton Terriers on Sunday. The Bruins (14-9-6) continued a recent string of hot play on Friday with a strong offensive performance in White City. A five-goal second period fuelled the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning effort and six different players scored by the time the night was through. But it was the Stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joel Gellvear striking first only 76 seconds into the

game. Marc Shaw scored nine minutes in to tie the game after one period. Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second of the game came at 4:13 of the second. Dylan Lay made it 3-1 for Estevan at 6:46. Jesse Manastyrski got the Storm within one at the eight-minute mark, but Talys Halabuza struck back only 18 seconds later for the Bruins. Tanner Jeannot and Blaine Herzberg would add two more tallies in the final half of the second period to put the Bruins ahead 6-2. The Storm got one back only three minutes into the third on a Dustin McCormick goal, and Matthew Perkins brought them within two goals at 15:17, but Kaelan Holt added some insurance for Estevan with 39 seconds to play. On Saturday against

the 17-2-6 bantam Hounds, a spirited third period was not enough for the Bruins to come back. Dillon Dube had the only marker of the first period for the Hounds, early in the frame.

Ty Brown of Estevan gave the Hounds a 2-0 lead two minutes into the second, and Dube added to that with a power play marker at 3:33. Shaw scored the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first goal just 17 seconds later.

Apex Bruins forwards Blaine Herzberg (right) and Steven Henderson eye the puck in mid-air during a loss to Yorkton on Sunday. Henderson would knock the puck into the net.

But the Hounds took a 4-1 lead late in the period on a goal by Conor MacLean. Kyle Salaway got the Bruins within two only 87 seconds into the third. Notre Dame followed that up with Elijah Francis and Jonah Cook lighting the lamp though, which meant that goals scored by Ryan Shirley and Jeannot for the Bruins in the final four minutes were not enough. The Bruins outshot the first-place bantam Hounds 29-23. On Sunday, despite facing a much weaker opponent, it was the same outcome for the Bruins. They fell behind 4-0 against the hapless Terriers after the first period. Tyler Shumay scored all four goals for Yorkton. Shaw netted the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

first goal less than four minutes into the second stanza. The Bruins continued to trail 4-1 after two periods, but mounted a serious comeback bid in the third. Midway through the period, the puck ricocheted up and over Yorkton goalie Michael Chorney and Bruins captain Steven Henderson managed to knock it out of mid-air into the net. Halabuza found the net 79 seconds later to get the Bruins within a goal. However, with 1:24 left in regulation, Yorktonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steven St. Marie clinched the win on a floater that was deflected into the top part of the net. The Apex Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next regular season action is Feb. 13 when they host the Notre Dame Hounds. That game is being made up from Jan. 11.

Estevan Mercury

Mermaids compete at Diane Lemon meet The Estevan Mermaids synchronized swimming club took part in the annual Diane Lemon Invitational Meet in Regina on the weekend. Seven individuals or teams from the Mermaids came home with first-place finishes. Mermaids head coach Brenda Lyons said she was proud of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance and that the weekend was about getting the athletes used to what is to be expected in a competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coaches were excited to see the growth in the athletes since their last figures competition, in November,â&#x20AC;? Lyons said.

The meet began on Saturday with the individual figures event, which is comprised of technical manoeuvres specific to age groups. The Mermaids had 21 athletes participating. Mackenzie Dahl topped the list of Estevan performances, taking first place in the age 16-18 provincial stream category. Chanel Thievin was fourth in the same category. Kelsey Potoma was fourth in the 13-15 provincial stream, while Nyla Dyck placed sixth in the 11-12 group. In the novice category, which is for athletes who have not been competitive prior to this season, Han-

nah Mantei was fourth, Brandi Peters fifth and Makenna Wock sixth. The duets competition took place on Saturday afternoon, with Eden Palmer and Alyssa Wieting taking top honours in the 13-15 provincial stream. Danika Poirier and Trinity Rooks were third in the same category. Flexibility testing took place Sunday morning. Dahl earned first place as the most flexible 16-yearold in the province, and Thievin was crowned the most flexible 17-year-old. The solo competition saw four Mermaids take part. Mantei was fi rst in the novice category, while

Gedak close three times Three times Brent Gedak found himself one win away from a showdown for a playoff spot. Ultimately, the Estevan curler and his team werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to close the deal. The Gedak rink did not reach the playoffs at the provincial Tankard in Melfort last week, despite going deep in the tournament. Gedak and his team of John Aston (third), Derek Owens (second) and Malcolm Vanstone (lead) reached the semifinals in the A, B and C draws but werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to make the final in any of them. A win in one of the finals would have sent the rink to the playoffs. The Brock Virtue rink from Regina would go on to win the Tankard and earn a berth in the Brier next month. Virtue knocked Gedak out of the B event on Friday. Gedak, who advanced to the Tankard from the southern playdowns in Este-

van last month, opened the tournament well on Jan. 30 with a 9-8 win over one of the favourites, Darrell McKee of Saskatoon. Gedak scored three points in the eighth end

Brent Gedak to take control of the game. He then edged Reginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jamie Schneider, his nemesis at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tankard, by a score of 8-7. In that game, Gedak gave up a steal of one in the 10th end to send it to extras, where Gedak took

one with hammer to win it. That sent Gedak to the A semis, where he ran into a hot Josh Heidt rink from Kerrobert. Heidt won that battle 7-4. The teams traded single points for the first six ends, but a three-spot for Heidt in the seventh end changed the course of the game for good and they shook hands after the ninth end. That loss dropped Gedak to the B side, where he faced Jeff Hartung of Langenburg. The Estevan crew wrapped up an 11-7 win with three points in the 10th end. That sent Gedak to the B semis to face Virtue. With the Regina rink leading 5-3 after six ends, Virtue then stole three points in the seventh and eighth ends to bring out the handshakes early. Gedakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only C side game ended quickly, as Steve Laycock put up a five-spot in the fourth end and added two more steals to earn a 9-1 victory in just six ends.

Potoma took third place in the 13-15 provincial stream. The meet wrapped up Sunday with performances from a variety of clubs from across the province. The team of Mantei, Peters, Wock, Reagan Wall and Courtney Reetz, competing in their first team synchro routine, walked away with first place in the novice event. In the 16-18 provincial stream, the Mermaids earned another first-place showing with a team comprised of Dahl, Tracy Irwin, Taylor Kuntz, Palmer, Potoma, Thievin, Wieting and Hannah Whitman. Tess Rensby and Shannon Wanner were the coaches. The Mermaidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team in the 11-12 group earned

a third-place finish. The team included Gemma Bittman, Dyck, Caitlin Graham, Brooke Kruger, Poirier, Rooks, Marlie

Weinrauch and Bailey Wock, and was coached by Lyons. The Mermaidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next meet is a month from now.

Himmelspach, Robinson win open curling bonspiels The Estevan Curling Club hosted its annual menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open bonspiels on the weekend, with teams from across the region participating. Adam Himmelspach of Lampman repeated as menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open champion, defending his 2012 victory by beating the Riley Wallewein rink in the A final.

Meanwhile, Audrey Robinson, who curls out of Estevan, earned a victory over Gwen Barth of Regina in the A final of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open spiel. In the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B final, Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brent Giesbrecht defeated Bob Windfaldet of Crosby. The rest of Giesbrechtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team curls out of Regina.

In the C final, Derrell Densley came out on top against Arol Phair in a battle of two Estevan rinks. Back in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draw, Leanne Carlson defeated Joan Phair to claim the B side crown. In the championship game for the C event, Sherrilee Orsted got past April Hilstrom.

Curling club to sell naming rights The Estevan Curling Club will have a new name later this year. The club is in the process of finalizing an agreement with Power Dodge to sell its naming rights. Under the terms of the agreement, which Power Dodge had not yet signed at press time, the local vehicle dealership will pay the curling club and the City of Estevan $250,000 over the next 10 years, to be divided into $25,000 sums

each year. The new name of the curling club will be the Power Dodge Curling Centre. According to the agreement, which was included in the Jan. 29 city council package, the new name takes effect on Oct. 1 of this year and ends on Oct. 1, 2022. Representatives from Power Dodge and the curling club declined to comment on the matter until the agreement is finalized.

The curling club, which rents out the building seven months of the year from the City, will receive two-thirds of the money. The City will receive the other third. The City is to give the curling club their share of the money by Oct. 15 of each year. The Power Dodge Curling Centre will be the only name attached to the facility throughout the agreement. A new logo for the club will be developed and will

appear on signs as well as the websites for the City and the curling club. In a letter written to the City last July, curling club manager Pauline Ziehl-Grimsrud said that the areas of concern requiring financial means in the short and long term include developing certified curling coaches; replacing club equipment, including canteen appliances, bar equipment, a new ice scraper and rock maintenance; a new

wood floor covering the ice surface to be used for social events; and new overhead cameras and monitors so spectators can see what is happening at the far end of the ice during games. As part of the agreement, the City and the curling club will provide Power Dodge ice logos, four preferred seats for major Saskatchewan Curling Association events, and platinum sponsorship at SCA events, at no cost.

Power Dodge agrees to pay any costs it incurs while using the building for its own events. For the term of the agreement, Power Dodge will be the only dealership advertiser in the facility, with the exception of existing agreements. Beginning one year prior to the dealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expiration, the three parties agree to negotiate exclusively for a period of six months toward renewing the agreement.

Stint with Bruins propelled Little to pros This is the third instalment in a monthly series of articles about Estevan Bruins alumni who have gone on to achieve success after hockey. These stories also appear in the Estevan Bruins Alumni monthly newsletter. Everything about Neil Littleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey to college hockey came by accident. Once he got to the pro ranks, though, he showed everyone that it was no fluke. The former Estevan Bruins goaltender, after spending 10 seasons in the Philadelphia Flyers organization, is still working for the team as a scout. Little, now 41, played for the Bruins in 1989-90. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a place to play and I ended up randomly calling Kevin Ginnell (then the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach) looking for a

tryout and ended up making the team,â&#x20AC;? said Little, who still keeps in touch with his billets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a real closeknit team and I still remember a lot of the guys. It was my first time away from home and the community as well as my teammates made me feel right at home.â&#x20AC;? As fate would have it, a scout from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) made a trip to Saskatchewan to watch Melfort goalie Parris Duffus. Instead, he ended up watching Little play twice and shortly afterward offered him a scholarship. Little was selected in the 11th round of the 1991 draft by the Flyers, and after four years at RPI, he turned pro. The Medicine Hat native would go on to spend 10 seasons in the AHL, the first

two with the Hershey Bears, followed by eight more with the Philadelphia Phantoms. Little said he was thankful to be able to play in the same city for so long, and that it was part of the reason he stayed in the AHL into his 30s, rather than packing it in or going to Europe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think more than anything I feel fortunate that I got a chance to play in the same city for so long, and I feel humbled that they thought enough of me to keep me around and employed. Not a lot of guys get a chance to do it and I realize that,â&#x20AC;? said Little. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the first few years youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to establish

yourself and get better,â&#x20AC;? he said of his AHL career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had some great teams, a tight bunch of guys and I was really enjoying myself. It comes down to, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Are you enjoying your work?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I was loving it. You just keep playing. As you get older, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re into a mentorship role and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re helping develop guys while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing. I was happy where I was.â&#x20AC;? In all that time in the Flyers organization, Little played only two NHL games. The first came on March 28, 2002, against the Carolina Hurricanes, with the Flyers losing 4-1.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was excited, I remember that. Unfortunately, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go my way that night. But my dad got a chance to come down. I have very fond memories of it,â&#x20AC;? said Little. His second NHL game came during the 2003-04 season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re climbing the ranks, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing your very best to make the jump. Some people get opportunities and some (donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t). A lot of it has to do with timing. I had a pretty good AHL career, but the timing wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right or something just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall into place where I got a chance to make the jump and play a bunch

of games. That being said, I loved it in Philly, I still do and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the way it goes,â&#x20AC;? he reflected. Little is now in his fifth year scouting for the team. He is not assigned to a particular region and has scouted everything from junior to pro. Although Little mainly scouts goalies, he also evaluates what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;priority playersâ&#x20AC;? on teams he is watching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I work with some of our younger prospects as well and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice mix. I love my job. I get to watch hockey, evaluate players and help make some of their dreams come true.â&#x20AC;?

EMF products at Chargers win provincial opener Texas tournament Two players under the Penta Completions Estevan Minor Football umbrella are in for a unique experience. Andrew Kehler and Lane Newell, both from Carlyle, are part of the Under-14 South Saskatchewan Selects football team competing at the Alamo City International Showdown in San Antonio, Tex. The tournament begins tomorrow and wraps up Feb. 13. Kehler, 13, will be used

as a receiver with the Selects, although he also spent some time at quarterback last season with the Estevan Chargers peewee team. Newell, 12, will be on the offensive line at the tournament, the same position he played in Estevan last year. Tryouts for the Selects team were held in November and 30 players were chosen. The team held practices in Moose Jaw before leaving for Texas in the last

week. The San Antonio tournament will have a unique twist for the Saskatchewan team, as they will be playing with American rules, a new experience for most, if not all of the players. That means four downs, a smaller field, no yard off the line for the defence and a lot less motion in the backfield, among other things. Teams from the United States and Mexico will also be in the tournament.

Nothing decided in bantam A provincial opener The Estevan Century 21 Bruins played the Weyburn Hitmen to a 3-3 tie in their provincial opener on home ice Jan. 30. Both teams enter Game 2 of the bantam A series on Feb. 7 in Midale on equal footing. Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, played at Spectra Place, saw both teams make a concerted effort to gain the upper hand in the third period. Prestin Bergen gave the Bruins a 3-2 lead with 9:18 left in the third, only to watch Weyburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Miles Lund respond just nine seconds later to tie it for good. The teams had traded goals in the first period. Paul Dionne struck first for the Hitmen at the 12-minute mark, but Kyle Hertes drew the Bruins even at 16:20. After a scoreless second period, the Bruins took the lead at 4:15 thanks to a goal by Shae Little on a breakaway. Weyburn needed only three minutes to get that one back, with Dionne scoring his second of the night. The goalies were Ethan Veroba for Estevan and Devon Pompu for Weyburn.

Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s female bantam A provincial team began its run on the right note on Monday, earning a 5-1 victory over the Weyburn Wings in Game 1 of their first round series. The team is called the Chargers, but is made up of players from both the Power Dodge Chargers and Dayman Trucking Bulldogs. The second game of the two-game, total-goal series goes Thursday in Weyburn.

6+23)25 68%/($6( Thank you to all who expressed good wishes to me on my retirement after 48 years since I was ďŹ rst admitted to practice law in Saskatchewan. I appreciated the messages by calls and cards and attendance at the reception in the Weyburn Legion Hall on Saturday, February 2. During the years, I was fortunate to have many valued clients â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for some families, even unto the third and fourth generation. I always tried to be (in the words of Alexander Pope) their â&#x20AC;&#x153;...guide, philosopher and friendâ&#x20AC;?. I am grateful to the judges in the courts where I appeared as counsel and to the law students and lawyers I met, whether in contest or collaboration. They enriched my experience in a worthy profession. I am particularly indebted to the staff support persons who made my work possible â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and pleasant. Special thanks to Don Horner who is continuing in the law practice in Weyburn. He and his wife Diane have been very kind and helpful in my transition from practice to retirement. Most importantly I am thankful to my wife Myrt for her support â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both material and moral â&#x20AC;&#x201C; during our more than 55 years together. We are both grateful that our son and daughters, Eric, Janet and Vanessa, were able to be with us at the reception on February 2. They and their spouses and their children, our eight grandchildren, make us glad to look forward to the future. Kim Thorson

Bruins look to be on a timely roll The offensive firepower of the Estevan Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first line was on full display Saturday as they won their third game in their last four, a 6-3 victory over the Melfort Mustangs. After a poor first period that suggested the Black and Gold were on their way to another loss against a weak team, they bounced back and earned an emphatic win. On last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s episode of The Beef Bar Bruins Banter TV, head coach Keith Cassidy said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learning to push back when that happens. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not folding, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going away.â&#x20AC;? That was certainly the

case against Melfort. With the Bruins down 3-1 after the first period, the trio of Dylan Smith, Alex Cote and Cole Olson suddenly took their game to mach speed and the Bruins never looked back, for the most part dominating the final 40 minutes. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that would have happened earlier this season. For most of the year, the Bruins have been down on themselves. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had no confidence, and when they fell behind by two or three goals, more often than not they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it in them to come back. It has been a different

Atom Sharks win water polo tournament in Weyburn The Estevan Sharks atom water polo team earned first place honours at a tournament in Weyburn on Sunday. The Sharks won two games and tied two others in the round-robin before winning their two playoff games. In the final against the Regina Red team, the

Sharks put in a strong showing at both ends en route to a 9-6 victory. Estevan began the tournament with a 6-6 tie against the Regina Blue team. They then earned another draw, 8-8 against the Weyburn boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team. The Sharks got their first win 9-8 in a tight game against the Regina Red

trated the difference after the win over the Mustangs. He said that when he spoke to some players before the Jan. 10 deadline about coming back, they were down on themselves. Then he said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never been part of a team so fired up after a win as the Bruins have been lately. Suddenly the Bruins have all the momentum on their side. The Kindersley Klippers are fading badly. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost five games in a row and seven of their last 10. A team that few people expected to hold down fourth place is now in jeopardy of missing the playoffs. The Weyburn Red Wings arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly thriving lately either. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 3-6-0-1 in their last 10. The Bruins are tied

with Kindersley with two games in hand, and the two teams are going in opposite directions right now. They are also six points ahead of the Wings with a game in hand. While it would be foolish to guarantee Estevan a playoff spot now with three weeks left in the season, they sure look like a good bet and would have to collapse down the stretch to miss the post-season. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it happening with the way theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing of late. Not so long ago, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have said that. But this is a different team weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching.

*** *** Look, without getting too deep into Derek Nernbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to officiate a game, he should not be allowed to work Bruin games. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got nothing to do with a few bad calls against the Bruins, or goals called back against them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as this: Nernberg was cut by the Bruins twice. Whether heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conscious of that during games or not, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the re-

Yes, I know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based in southern Saskatchewan, and I know the league is trying to cut down on travel wherever possible. But if the SJHL wants to be professional and be taken seriously, it needs to take whatever steps it can to prevent any possible bias.

TS&M Bruins earn split on homestand After being held off the scoresheet on Saturday, the Estevan TS&M Bruins rebounded the next day with an offensive explosion. The bantam AA club lost 5-0 to the Yorkton Terriers in the first game of their weekend homestand, but doubled up the Notre Dame Hounds 8-4 on Sunday. The Bruins (9-14-3) currently sit in seventh place in the South Division of the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League, two points out of a playoff spot. On Sunday, the Bruins scored four goals in the first period and continued to outpace the Hounds as the game went on.

Matthew Bill led the hosts with a hat trick and Kolten Ganson added two goals. Ganson opened the scoring for the Bruins at the 3:35 mark, but the Hounds tied it less than two minutes later on a power play marker by Estevan native Wyatt Bayliss. That was the first of eight power play goals on the day. Peyton Stevenson countered at the 11-minute mark to put the Bruins back on top. Notre Dame pulled even again four minutes later on a goal by Nicholas Stainbrook. But Estevan would add two more goals in the last four minutes of the period,

courtesy of Bill and Colton Winton. Bayliss scored again for the Hounds only 77 seconds into the middle frame to get them within a goal, but Bill added his second less than four minutes later. Jayden Davis gave the Bruins a 6-3 lead with five minutes left in the period. That score held until the 11:42 mark of the third, when Ganson scored his second of the night. Three minutes later, Bill completed his hat trick with his third power play goal of the game. Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cameron Dykstra rounded out the scoring with 3:11 to play. On Saturday, the Bruins

found themselves shut out by the fourth-place Terriers. Yorkton got goals from five different players in the win. Josh Rohatynsky scored the only goal of the first

period late in the frame, and Cody Dubas scored early in the second to give the Terriers a two-goal lead. The visitors would add three more goals in the third, courtesy of McKenzie Wel-

ke, Brett Melnychuk and Jake Kustra. The Bruins only have one game left in the regular season, coming on Feb. 16 in Regina against the first-place Pat Blues.

They trailed by two goals heading into the second game last night in Swift Current. After a scoreless first period, the Wild scored twice in the second, getting goals from Kade Behm and Carter Heffley. Braden Lemay added

another marker for Swift Current midway through the third period. Dayton Westerman potted the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; only goal at 12:42 of the third period. Ryan Kenzie turned in a strong effort in goal for Estevan.

Edu Malangen, Kim Marbella, Wesh Binalla and James Senires of the Third Town Band.

Filipino band connects with new community through their music For the members of the Third Town Band, playing music is a hobby they can share with anyone. The members of the seven-piece band found one another naturally and the group has been growing organically since James Senires saw a pair of his fellow bandmates playing at a Christmas party. As they have learned of new friends who have a passion that follows their musical ability, the band, which began with four members, has added to its ranks. Senires said he saw Edu Malangen and Erik Galvez performing at the party. He liked what he heard, so had them come into Eddie’s, where he works, to put on a show. “We invited them in for a Christmas party, so we had them jamming, and that’s pretty much where it all started,” said Senires.

The original lineup included Senires, Malangen, Galvez and Wesh Binalla. The Third Town Band will be the latest group to perform at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum, followed by a show at Eddie’s Neighbourhood Grill and Bar on Feb. 8 for After Dark/After Hours. So far the band of Filipino immigrants has played several shows together as a whole — often at Eddie’s — performing their take on hits from the 1980s and ’90s. Senires said they are influenced a lot by rock from that period as well as psychedelic funk, ska and reggae. “Me and Wesh, we grew up on the genre of the ’90s rock,” said Senires. “What we all agree upon is reggae stuff, because it’s all just fun. Most of our cover songs are reggae songs.” Malangen adds the

funky side of the band with his guitar playing. He said that they also like to incorporate a mix of Filipino music into their songs. A lot of those are actually English songs that were written by Filipinos. “Being Filipinos, we want to share some of our music from Filipino artists who are really, really good in the Phillipines,” added Senires. “There are really good Filipino artists that have really big talent, and we just want to share it with our culture here.” The band includes Senires, as keyboardist and guitar player, Malangen, Binalla playing bass and percussion, Galvez on drums, Jelyne Eugenio and Kim Marbella providing vocals, while newcomer Kristofer Duran plays acoustic guitar and sings as well. The members have

Do you remember? TEN YEARS AGO: City council faced up to the fact the City would have to depend on contractors to repair watermain breaks and repairs in 2003 because they didn’t have the equipment required to do the work. During budget deliberations on Jan. 28, council faced the reality they didn’t have the money to purchase a new excavator, and would have to depend on someone else to do the work. The cost of a new unit was estimated to be $275,000. The change of command officially took place

at the Estevan Branch No. 60, Royal Canadian Legion on Feb. 1 with the swearing in of the new executive during the annual past president’s banquet and social. Second World War veteran Joe Gervais was sworn in as president, succeeding Ken Clarke. Estevan’s Jim Packet qualified to go for his third provincial men’s curling championship as a skip. Packet and his team of Bob Doerr, Dallas Duce and Darrel Duce advanced out of the B-side at the Southern Men’s Championship in Melville the weekend

of Jan. 31, Feb. 1 and 2. The Pool Tankard was set to begin Feb. 5 in Prince Albert. As a skip, Packet won the 1989 and 1997 provincial championships. He also played in a provincial championship in 1993 when he was the third on the Kirk Ziola rink. A Frobisher skater did very well at the recent SaskEnergy Provincial CanSkate Championships, placing first in both the events she competed in.

been in Canada and the Estevan area for varying times. Some like Senires have been in the country for as many as four years, while Eugenio and Marbella are more recent immigrants. Marbella is celebrating her first year in the country this week. Marbella was vetted by Binalla, who noted her vocal ability to the rest of the group. She came in to jam and has stuck. Eugenio came to Canada a couple of months after Marbella and joined as well. “We learned she was a really good singer, and they jive together, Kim and Jel,” said Senires. That’s how the band has formed. As they meet new people with musical talent, they invite the new prospects. If everyone has fun, the band gets a new member. “It’s not a really deep

kind of story. It’s just guys having fun,” said Senires of how they have all come together. They take their name from the fact that the members reside in three different communities in the southeast. Most live in Estevan, but Galvez lives in Weyburn and Malangen lives in Oxbow. With the After Dark/ After Hours format, the band will be able to perform both acoustic and full band sets, something they look forward to. “Maybe one of our best songs, Sweet Child Of Mine, we’d probably rock it out as acoustic at the art gallery. You should see how hard this guy’s going to rock his guitar,” said Senires, pointing at Malangen. The group regularly takes requests from the audience, and they have had audience members up

to sing along with them. Senires said it’s always a party when they hit the stage. The band jams most Sundays, when everyone has a day off. They don’t want to force Galvez to have to lug his drum kit anywhere, so they usually all head to Weyburn for a meal together followed by some music. Senires said music is one of tthe great communicators, so building roots in Saskatchewan starts with sharing their music with the people around them. “We have a lot of friends here. We’re making this our new home, and we’re trying to share our culture with our new friends here. Music is probably the best way to do it,” he said. “It’s not just us sitting there playing. It’s us realizing our roots through music.”

The Bruins made it all the way to the A final before losing 10-2 to the Bow Valley Buccaneers from Alberta.

In Memory ROY BUTLER November 15, 1919 February 6, 2002 Time may pass and fade away, But silent thoughts and memories stay. No longer in our lives to share, But in our thoughts you are always there. Your love, wonderful example, and wisdom will guide us always. - Lovingly remembered and deeply missed by Carol, Tim, Natalie and Geoffrey.

CARD OF THANKS THANK YOU We, the family of the late Stella Butler, are so thankful for the tender care provided for our Mom at Hill View Manor, St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital, and the Estevan Regional Nursing Home. Since her passing, we are grateful for the many thoughtful gestures, expressed in words, and prayers, phone calls, food provided, flowers, monetary donations in her name, or attendance at the service. Our appreciation goes out to Sandy, Brenda, and Kay of St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, organist Shirley Andrist, the choir, and to those who provided and ser ved lunch. To Doug Third and the professional folks at Hall Funeral Services, we are very thankful for what you did to help us in every way. Each expression of condolence has been a tribute to our Mom - an amazing and special lady - and a comfort to us. Thank you so much. - Arlette Spencer, Joyce Godin, Carol Walliser and families.

In Memory of Avory Eagles July 27, 1917 to February 4, 1998 They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason Will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times We have broken down and cried. We cannot bring the old days back When we were all together, The family chain is broken now But memories live forever. Rest in peace Dad. - Love, Your Family.

Estevan Mercury

Do you remember? â&#x2021; B7 and Alameda boarded buses and travelled to Saskatoon on Jan. 26 to attend a farm rally at Saskatchewan Place. More than 12,000 farmers attended the event that was designed to draw attention to the farm income crisis in the province. Pam Kolke, daughter of Daryl and Berva Kolke of Estevan, was named the recipient of a Governor Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Proficiency Scholarship. Pam was enrolled in the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan. T H I RT Y Y E A R S AGO: Results of a questionnaire sent out by the Estevan Chamber of Commerce clearly showed that most Estevan business operators opposed a second night of shopping in the city. With Thursday night shopping already being offered in

Estevan, the chamber promotions committee sent out questionnaires to 65 businesses in early January, asking whether or not they favoured an additional night of shopping. Of the 65 letters sent out, there were 41 replies stating they opposed an extra night, while four businesses favoured an additional opening night. The results of the survey were also being sent to the provincial Department of Municipal Affairs with a request that existing legislation regarding store opening hours be left as it was. Ron Bourquin, a member of the Estevan Kinsmen Club, was elected deputy governor for Zone 5 at the zone conference in Pangman on Feb. 5 and 6. Zone 5 covered Estevan, Weyburn, Radville, Pangman, Carlyle, Lumsden and the Regina Queen City and Buffalo of Regina clubs.

Although elected on the weekend, Bourquinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term of office didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t officially start until July 1. The Celebrity Sports Dinner held Feb. 4 at the Beefeater Plaza â&#x20AC;&#x153;went over extremely wellâ&#x20AC;? according to organizers. Cosponsored by the Estevan Kinsmen Club and the Estevan Bruins Hockey Club, the evening featured Dan Kepley of the Edmonton Eskimos; Ernie (Punch) McLean, a former Estevan resident and former coach of the Estevan Bruins and New Westminster Bruins; Bill Gullickson of the Montreal Expos; Mike Samples and Lyall Woznesensky of the Saskatchewan Roughriders as guest speakers. Also in attendance was Estevan native Bryan Illerbrun, a member of the Roughriders, who was announced as Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sportsman of the Year.

HEART&STROKE FOUNDATION OF SASKATCHEWAN Finding answers. For life.

Too many children still dying on Canadian farms According to the most recent report from Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting, an average of 13 children die every year as a result of agricultural incidents in Canada. While the number of child deaths on farms appears to be decreasing slightly, that number is still too high. The report shows that between 1990 and 2008, almost 250 children under 15 years of age were killed in agricultural incidents. Between 2000 and 2008, the number of child fatalities per year fell to an average of 10 deaths, down from an average of 16 deaths per year in the previous 10 years. While this drop is encouraging, the actual fatality rate of children adjusted for population has only decreased an average of 0.4 per cent annually. CAIR co-chair Pamela Fuselli of Parachute Canada said â&#x20AC;&#x153;children on farms and ranches are very vulnerable to injury. It is important that parents make a concerted effort to keep their children away from harm until they can participate in agricultural activities safely.â&#x20AC;? Fuselli says parents must take responsibility for ensuring all tasks assigned

to children are appropriate for their age and abilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never take children of any age as extra riders on tractors and other farm machinery,â&#x20AC;? she said. Although 71 per cent of the child agricultural fatalities were work-related, in almost eight out of 10 cases, the victim was not actually performing farm tasks, but was killed by someone else (usually an adult) who was engaged in agricultural work. This would include incidences such as a child passenger falling from a tractor, or a combine operator reversing and hitting a child bystander. In about 20 per cent of the work-related fatalities, the child victim was working. Eighty-one per cent of the children who were killed on farms were male. Seventy-three per cent were the children of farm owners or operators. Another 10 per cent were child visitors and nine per cent were relatives of farm owner/operators. Almost four out of 10 children aged 14 and younger died as the result of being struck or run over by a machine (tractor, off-road vehicle, motor vehicle or a wagon or trailer), followed by drowning (16 per cent),

machine rollovers (12 per cent), animal-related incidents (six per cent), being caught in or under an object (five per cent) and being struck by a non-machine object (four per cent). At least 45 per cent of child deaths on farms occurred close to the farm house (ie, farm yard, driveway, barn and sheds). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is especially crucial for adults to keep preschool children away from farm work at all times,â&#x20AC;? said Fuselli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An adult who is engaged in agricultural tasks cannot supervise a preschool child adequately at the work site.â&#x20AC;? For the complete report Agricultural Fatalities in Canada 1990-2008, or to view a summary document, go to CAIRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at: www.cair-sbac.ca. Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting (CAIR) was established in 1995 (formerly the Canadian Agricultural Injury Surveillance Program) to provide one of the only sources of national agricultural injury data in Canada. CAIR is funded by the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) through Growing Forward, a federal, provincial, territorial initiative.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to the entire staff of the Estevan Regional Nursing Home for the wonderful care given our mother, Stella Butler, during her residence there. It was with professionalism, kindness, patience, and compassion that she was treated every day, with a sprinkle of humour and friendly smiles. The consideration and thoughtfulness shown us as family, were greatly appreciated as well. We shall always remember and be grateful that Mom received the best possible care.
