The sight of heavy equipment clearing snow has been a familiar one in Estevan throughout the past couple of weeks.

Winter woes continue Seemingly endless winter creating headaches for City

As the snow continues to fall, the bills are piling up for the City of Estevan. The incredible volume of snow that has fallen on the area throughout the winter, but especially within the last month, has forced the City to mobilize much of its workforce as well as local contractors as they attempt to keep up with Mother Nature. Estevan was hit with an estimated 10 to 15 centimetres of snow on Friday and received another eight to 10 centimetres Sunday and into Monday morning. The blast had City crews out early Monday morning to hit the Priority 1 streets. Crews were also at work Tuesday morning windrowing snow in the downtown core. City manager Jim Puffalt said their primary focus since mid-January has been snow removal. Although he was unable to provide an exact dollar figure as they are still tabulating their costs, Puffalt said it’s safe to say the final total is not going to be small. “We’ve had all of our loaders and graders out and working so that is four or five pieces of equipment and four to five employees basically going 10 hours a day, so it starts to add up,� said Puffalt. Aside from the obvious hit to the City’s wallet, Puffalt said the constant snowfall is taking its toll on their employees who have been called on to put in a lot of hours in the past couple of months. “It’s becoming quite wearing, but our people are handling it well,� he

said. “They are professionals and have been dealing with this for years, but it just gets a little hard on people, and it’s hard on our equipment and hard on people who are trying to drive around the city. It’s been tough to keep up.� Puffalt said he has been pleased with the City’s reply to the snowfalls. He noted in January they decided to clean up the majority of residential areas, a move that gave them a little extra capacity. “It gave us some area to have the snowpack down. I don’t know where we would be otherwise; I’m sure we would have been removing snow the last couple of weeks.� While the snow is obviously the current focus, Puffalt said they are wary of what will happen when it begins to melt. As has been well documented, roads in Estevan are in terrible shape and it will be at least a month before the City has asphalt to make repairs. They have been using cold asphalt in the interim, but that is nothing more than a temporary solution. “We have multiple projects to look after at this time of year. We have some snow being moved around, we have people on pothole patching and then we have to have people on steamers to keep the water moving. It’s a very hectic time of year for us.� The forecast for the next week calls for snow on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The temperature is expected to begin rising next week with a high of three degrees for next Wednesday but a high of eight degrees by April 1.

WEATHER & INDEX

After getting a first look in November, and apparently not liking what they saw, the members of Estevan city council are getting ready to take another look at the 2013 budget. Mayor Roy Ludwig said he expected council would do some preliminary work on the budget Monday during a closed planning meeting and will also work on the budget during the next regular meeting this coming Monday. When council first began deliberating in late 2012, the theme of the budget was to complete whatever work had been delayed over the past couple of years and allow themselves to catch up. As well, with the City’s overall debt up to $37 million, they were not eager to take on large, costly projects in 2013.

However, it would appear the results of a harsh winter on local streets may have changed that plan. Ludwig said the shape of Highway 47 through Estevan as well as sections of King Street are in such poor shape that the City has no choice but to work on them this year. The City and provincial government have a deal in place to rehabilitate Highway 47 through Estevan with work expected to start in 2014. As part of the deal, the City was not allowed to begin the work until receiving approval from the province or would have to pay the whole cost themselves. But with much of Highway 47 and areas of King crumbling to the point where they have become an embarrassment to the City and a safety

hazard for drivers, Ludwig said they have to do something this year. “It’s in such rough shape, we are looking at a shave and pave probably and we are in discussions with the province to see if we can’t get some kind of partnership on the shave and pave because we can’t wait until next year anymore,â€? Ludwig said. “It’s very rough and we can’t wait. That is one of our key areas we have to get at (once asphalt is available) because it is getting impassable. “This was a particularly tough winter and we really appreciate the patience of the taxpayers and we all understand that their patience is running thin and understandably so.â€?

⇠A1 Ludwig said the City is in initial discussions about the shave and pave idea and it is premature to say where those talks might lead. If they move ahead with resurfacing the areas in question, Ludwig said it might require the City to put off other purchases and projects that were in the budget as they are very cognizant of adding more debt. “It is a tightrope that we are walking. We are running around $37 million and our ceiling is $45 million, but we will have a

better feel for that after our budget,� he said. “There are no alarm bells ringing or nothing like that. The last council and even the one before that made a conscious decision — do we grow or do we not and we made the decision to grow knowing that we would have to take on extra debt. “Some debt like Shirley Creek, that will soon be coming to an end. We do see breathing room ahead. Once we start turning the corner, we can see light at the end of the tunnel. We’ve got some very keen

people on council that are absolutely dedicated to paying the debt down and at the same time taking care of the infrastructure.� Ludwig said after the first round of deliberations in 2012, they sent the city manager and department managers back to winnow their list and any areas that were more of a wish than a need were to be removed. The mayor added that city treasurer Tim Leson has announced that he plans to retire effective Sept. 1. With the retirement, Ludwig said the City will be conducting an

audit of its finances, which they do whenever there is a treasurer change. Ludwig said he would like to see the City also conduct an audit whenever there is a council change so the new group is up to date on all financial information. On the topic of budgets and finances, the provincial government will be releasing its 2013 budget today in Regina. Ludwig said that cities have not been told what to expect from the budget, but that Estevan and other communities from throughout the province are hoping for a long-term infrastructure program that would also involve the federal government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The federal budget is coming out soon and it will have some money for infrastructure. Through SUMA, one of the areas that we were approaching the province on was perhaps a partnership with the feds to get a long term, transparent, dependable infrastructure plan in place where we can project 10 to 15 years down the road that this funding will be there.â&#x20AC;? Ludwig added the province is also expecting to hear from Health Minister Dustin Duncan regarding a CT Scan for Estevan. A group from the area met with Duncan earlier this year and pitched a plan where the funds to purchase the machine would come from the community. The same plan would have the group pay for the first two years of operation. At that meeting, Duncan told the group, which included Ludwig, they should have a decision towards the end of March. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is something we are patiently, optimistically waiting on,â&#x20AC;? Ludwig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been working on this for years.â&#x20AC;?

There are no trees to replant yet on the former chuckwagon race track, but following the meeting Puffalt met with TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club management to discuss that issue and the sharing of equipment that will allow both groups to gather and replant mature and semi-mature trees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that the former chuckwagon race track wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the desirable location at first this year. It will be used for overflow until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built up,â&#x20AC;? Puffalt added. With the additional work to come at the Boundary Dam site, Woodlawn will be able to offer as many as 350 campsites this summer, he said, and when the former chuckwagon race track project is complete, there will be 420 full service or near full service sites available, making Woodlawn one of the largest regional parks in the province. Puffalt said the park committee received $2.4 million from the Provincial Disaster Assistance Plan (PDAP) last year and they have spent $987,000 of that so far in the rebuilding efforts. He said the money remaining should be able to cover the cost of the rest of the redevelopment plans. Estevan Mayor Roy Ludwig, who attended the meeting, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;they took the disaster and turned it into an opportunity.â&#x20AC;? He also noted how some local oil and construction companies leaped into the breach to provide assistance, much of it as volunteers. Puffalt said the new park logo will be unveiled during the official relaunching of the park(s) in early July. The event will also acknowledge the impact the 2011 flood had on the park. He also noted how local rural municipal councils such as the RMs of Estevan and Benson have been integral in the revival plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is still a long road ahead, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited about getting it done,â&#x20AC;? Puffalt said in conclusion. The four new members on the board of directors were announced as being Josh LeBlanc, Lori Naka, Lynn Chipley and Karen Anderson. They were elected out of a field of six candidates whose names were forwarded to the C of C members for an online election process. It was also noted that the upcoming EBEX Awards program is still in need of sponsors for two categories and any additional general supporting sponsorships. Michel Cyrenne, executive director of the C of C, noted that nomination forms for the local business Hall of Fame will remain open until April 15. He said he knew business people were reluctant to nominate their own places and people, but they should not be holding up a worthy nomination on that count. He also provided some additional information regarding the upcoming trip to China, which will be taking place this coming fall. The next luncheon meeting for the C of C will be April 10 when Ron Areshenkoff of Spectra Financial Services will speak to the members about their insurance plan.

Estevan Mercury

SaskPower using unique process to find housing for employees By Norm Park of The Mercury The ongoing housing shortage in the Energy City is having an effect on industry at a number of levels now. It appears as if the local accommodation shortages and costs are not just influencing the lower rent world. SaskPower, the Crown corporation that employs approximately 475 people at Boundary Dam and Shand Power Stations, is having to take a step into the accommodation management marketplace in an attempt to find suitable housing for employees they hope to attract to Estevan for medium and long-term employment. Judy May, vice-president of supply chain management for SaskPower, informed The Mercury last week that the corporation is currently running a series of advertisements in the Estevan area to see if there is some housing available for their future employees to rent and live in. The advertisements entitled, Expression of Interest, call on area realtors, homeowners, property developers and managers to provide them with some idea of what might be available for employees with families. The call is for units that have at least two bedrooms or are single-detached or multi-plex units, condominiums, apartments, modular or mobile homes within a 100 kilometre radius of Estevan. The housing must be available for occupancy no later than June of this year and remain available for a minimum of one year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for family friendly accommodations, not the labour camp concept that is being used for local construction projects. This is for permanent full-time employees. We are recruiting professional people for the

Estevan area and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult because they say they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find housing in Estevan,â&#x20AC;? said May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hiring people right now, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeking housing for them immediately and there are proposals going out for later in the year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at all options. We want to give our employees some time to settle in and get their kids registered into schools and working with local realtors and developers to find their houses or condos for the future,â&#x20AC;? May added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is apart from the clean-coal project demands. They have their temporary accommodation situation; this is different,â&#x20AC;? she said. The SaskPower vice-president,

said the corporation is helping its employees and future employees with this bridging opportunity since they feel it will help them in their recruiting process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope some can move in immediately if accommodations can be found, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eventually need to work with local developers and realtors. This is just step one in a two-step program. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something for right now, and then they can move if they want or need to, into more permanent housing. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken these steps in a limited way before, a sort of stop-gap measure. This request weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sending out now is for proposals for more of a transitional housing opportunity. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to find at least 25 units. The number of employee vacancies at Shand and Boundary

fluctuates regularly, but we, generally speaking, will have 20 to 40 vacancies in employment that need to be filled on any given week,â&#x20AC;? she said. So with an immediate and transitional housing plan in place, SaskPower hopes that will help them recruit and hire people to fill those positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be in the housing business. Obviously thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what we do, but we felt it was necessary at this time. It has been a growing issue since the middle of 2011. There is an economic boom there, we know that with the clean coal, coal, gas and so on. SaskPower is experiencing the start of some retirements and some are retiring in Estevan, so their houses arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the market. We need new housing. We have a great group of retirees who will probably serve as ambassadors, and the process is too new yet to see where it will go, but we want to have contact with people who might help and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing that first through the expression of interest call and with the second step, which will be the request for proposals.â&#x20AC;? The deadline for the first call closed on Monday, March 18. May said the process and response will be evaluated before the company enters into the second step.

The board of the Holy Family Roman Catholic School Division board of education has approved the 2013-2014 five day school calendar for its Estevan and Weyburn schools. In developing these calendars, Holy Family engaged in a process that involved parents, School Community Council members, board members and school employees representing all schools in the Holy Family division. After determining the direction of the provincial government, as well as the Ministry of Education and the needs of our community stakeholders, representatives from Holy Family met with the South East Cornerstone Public School Division to draft a calendar that would be similar for all students in our shared communities.

The Boards of Directors of those Existing Credit Unions whose members and shareholders, if applicable, approve the Arrangement Agreement (the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Approving Credit Unionsâ&#x20AC;?) will apply for incorporation of the Affinity Credit Union 2013 under The Credit Union Act, 1998. 4. The Approving Credit Unions agree to sell, transfer and assign their loans, deposits and other financial assets (â&#x20AC;&#x153;financial interestsâ&#x20AC;?) to Affinity Credit Union 2013 at a purchase price equal to the fair market value of the financial interests. 5. Affinity Credit Union 2013 will assume all liabilities of the Approving Credit Unions other than liabilities in relation to the assets which are not transferred or any unknown claims or liabilities or specified existing liabilities.

6. Members and shareholders of the Approving Credit Unions will exchange their shares in the Approving Credit Unions for shares in Affinity Credit Union 2013 on a one-for-one basis with all rights, entitlements and interests remaining the same. The Approving Credit Unions will apply to the Court for an order approving the exchange of shares. 7. All property not transferred to Affinity Credit Union 2013 will remain in each of the Approving Credit Unions. The Approving Credit Unions will then be continued under The Business Corporations Act and will become subsidiaries of Affinity Credit Union 2013, to be licensed under The Trust and Loans Corporations Act, 1997 as financing corporations. 8. The first Directors and Delegates of Affinity Credit Union 2013 are named in the Agreement. 9. The Agreement includes proposed Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws for Affinity Credit Union 2013. 10. The Arrangement is subject to, and shall only become effective upon, its approval by the members and shareholders of two of the Existing Credit Unions, one of which must be Affinity Credit Union, and upon receiving all required regulatory approvals. 11. The effective date of the Arrangement shall be the July 1, 2013.

Estevan home values take big jump Some Estevan homeowners were on the receiving end of both good and bad news last week. The City of Estevan began sending out 2013 assessment notices to residents to inform them of what their property has been valued at by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency. SAMA reassesses property every four years for taxation purposes. In what is another reflection of the financial boom in the city, residential property values in Estevan increased by an average of 106 per cent over the past four years, which is well ahead of the provincial average of 87 per cent. However, that does not mean property owners will see their taxes rise significantly as the City said it will try to make any assessment revenue neutral. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the average is 106 per cent, council, before they apply a mill rate increase would go back to a mill rate that would provide the same amount of taxes as last year and then they would put a new mill rate on it,â&#x20AC;? said city manager Jim Puffalt. While that news is good for those whose values rose by the 106 per cent average, there are a number of homeowners whose taxable assessment rose well above that mark and they will see an increase in their taxes. City Tax Assessor Trina Sieben says older homes in Estevan were hit particularly hard as their values were adjusted to reflect the current market climate. According to some anecdotal reports, the increases have been in the 125 to 150 per cent range depending on the home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2009 we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough sales to bring them up to where they are now, whereas in the last five years, the market for all houses has increased drastically.â&#x20AC;? Sieben added that when the last reassessment was done

in 2009, it used a base date of 2006 with respect to market values for homes. For the 2013 assessment the base date was January 1, 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is bringing the values closer to what the market would have been at that time,â&#x20AC;? Sieben said. When it comes to assessing value on a property, Sieben said there are a few different approaches taken. Commercial and multi-family properties are assessed on the property income approach while residential properties are done on the sales comparison report. According to the information that was provided to taxpayers with their assessment notices, the property income approach is based on the premise that the value of the property is directly related to the rental income it will generate. The appraiser analyzes the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to produce a future income stream and then estimates the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value. The sales comparison approach is a straightforward process, as it compares what other homes in the same market are selling for. The average increase in commercial/industrial property was 54 per cent while multi-unit residential jumped by 123 per cent. The value of non-arable land increased by 120 per cent while other agricultural land rose by 92 per cent. If someone disagrees with their assessment, they will have the opportunity to file an appeal until May 13. The City will also be holding an open house on April 10 where the public can discuss their assessment values. On a provincial level, the government has announced that it will hold the line on education property taxes this year. Because the overall value of property in Saskatchewan

rose by 67 per cent, there had been some fears of a large tax increase. Premier Brad Wall quelled those worries last week with the announcement the increase would be revenue neutral. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few weeks ago, Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter said that our government would take a close look at the impact of this huge increase in property values on property taxes,â&#x20AC;? Wall said in a government release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased to announce that despite some significant pressures on our provincial budget, we will hold the line on education property taxes in 2013.â&#x20AC;? Wall said that means education tax rates will be reduced significantly in next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial budget to keep the overall impact on property taxes revenue-neutral in terms of reassessment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means some property owners will still see their taxes go up because their assessment went up more than average, while others will see their property taxes go down,â&#x20AC;? Wall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But overall, we are holding the line on education property tax mill rates.â&#x20AC;? 2013 Revaluation Assessed Value Trend Report (100% Value) Tax Class Commercial Industrial Multi-Unit Residential Non-Arable (Range) Pipeline & Railway Residential Total

Interest in SaskJobs remains at record levels Visits to the saskjobs.ca website continued at a steady pace in February. The popular jobs website saw a seven per cent increase in visits over February 2012, with just under a million visitors this February and a 12 per cent increase in the number of jobs posted. A total of 15,390 job opportunities were posted by employers in February, which is up more than 12 per cent year-over-year. The sales and service category continued to make up the majority of postings at 34.5 per cent; this is a 44.2 per cent increase over February 2012. The trades, transport and construction category vacancies comprised the next largest segment of all jobs posted at 29.2 per cent, an 11.7 per cent increase year over year. Job opportunities in the processing and manufacturing category

were also up by 21.2 per cent over the same month last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saskatchewan continues to offer valuable opportunities for those seeking new employment and for those employers seeking to fill positions,â&#x20AC;? Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we continue to see new and exciting positions posted each and every day in virtually every category and industry and in both rural and urban markets across the province.â&#x20AC;? In February, 326 communities posted job opportunities on the saskjobs.ca website. Visitors to the site are primarily from Saskatchewan but interest from those outside of the province is rising; visits from job seekers in Quebec were up year-over-year by 86.6 per cent. As well, interest from those outside of Canada continues to grow; web visits from interested job seekers in

Ireland grew by 28.6 per cent and from India by 25.5 per cent over February 2012. Mobile use also continues to rise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Job seekers are using their cellphones and other mobile devices to search for jobs now more than ever,â&#x20AC;? Boyd said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mobile hits to the Saskjobs website have doubled over the same month last year and are up by 109 per cent, and we expect that trend to continue - especially with our new Saskatchewan Jobs Facebook page which launched last month.â&#x20AC;? The Estevan area remains flush with employment opportunities as there were almost 1,200 jobs listed on the site as of Monday morning. The bulk of those jobs are in the sales sector as well as the trades, transport and construction area.

A6 EDITORIAL

Stage is now set The stage is now set and the door has been opened. With Souris-Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki announcing he would not be seeking re-election in the next federal election, we feel certain there are several wheels churning in more than a few heads regarding the prospects of becoming this constituency’s Conservative candidate by 2015. So let the posturing and positioning games begin. Let us all serve warning however, that gaining the approval of a local nominating committee is not necessarily enough since it has become clear over the years that when it comes to selecting federal candidates, in any party, the approval also needs to come from head office, and in this case, the candidate’s nomination would require the signature of Stephen Harper or one of his minions in the PMO. It won’t be a cut and dried affair. When lawyer Komarnicki became candidate Komarnicki, the whole selection process was rather messy and awkward for all concerned. Most of the blame for the sloppy selection process back in 2003-04 was directed at Ottawa where the Conservatives were attempting to reorganize under a new banner of amalgamation. It became obvious that this new crew didn’t have their act together and their effort to block Grant Devine’s candidacy was humiliating for them, him, and most likely Komarnicki, too. It certainly wasn’t clear sailing or their finest hour, even after Komarnicki received the nod from the phantom committee that finally provided the stamp of approval. This time around, we don’t expect the nomination process will be that muddled. The party has their ducks lined up now. In fact the PMO has things lined up to the point of obsession. Now having provided the set-up, we take a moment to reflect on our MP’s career as our representative in Ottawa and the review pretty well provides him with a clean slate of dedicated service. With only one cabinet post usually reserved for Saskatchewan at the Conservative table, it became obvious early on that MP Komarnicki was not going to rise in those ranks, but he certainly provided stellar performances as parliamentary secretary in Citizenship and Immigration and as secretary to the minister of Human Resources, Skills and Development as well as minister of Labour. The appointments and re-appointments indicate he was, and still is, a valued contributor at the table. His focus on the constituency has been and is, steady. Our MP, in one pragmatic move, has served notice he is giving potential replacements and the local constituency committee ample time to seek a suitable person. The support for the current governing party is huge in Souris-Moose Mountain, a fact that has been acknowledged by potential opponents who have pretty well conceded before campaigns begin in this area of the country. Rest assured, the PMO and the local committee won’t want to see that support erode heading into another campaign. We expect to see a very careful selection process taking place since it will be almost assured that this is an anointing of the next MP for southeast Saskatchewan. Nobody will want to mess with this cozy relationship the party has with the electorate, a relationship that was carefully groomed by Komarnicki. In the meantime, we expect to see no less effort from our current MP, who still has a few lengths to go before he issues the formal farewell. His decision to set the stage early was a good one that should be appreciated by all those concerned with selecting a successor.

NDP rural problems start at top You don’t need to look any further than the current makeup of the Saskatchewan legislature to see how far removed the NDP is from rural Saskatchewan. Of the 58 current seats (scheduled to grow to 61 in 2015), 27 are located in the four major cities and two more represent the northern ridings. The remaining 29 seats are what we call rural seats, although some may question whether ridings representing Yorkton, North Battleford and Swift Current should really be called rural. Nevertheless, of those 29 rural seats, all are represented by Saskatchewan Party MLAs. The Sask. Party won most of those seats in 2011 by majorities of 70 per cent or more. In fact, SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

Thinking ahead, oh about 60 years It appears as if the problem with our democratic society lies in the fact the system really doesn’t allow for a lot of visionary thinking. With politicians being in charge of our future files, for instance, the visionary thing generally lapses right around the three or four-year mark ... meaning the next general election. No sense in making any plans beyond that because they may not be in charge and they don’t want someone else taking credit for their wonderful ideas ... seems to be the prevailing process. In spite of all that fluffy holdup stuff, some sectors are still attempting to think beyond election dates. The communications people, for instance, don’t seem to be too tied up in political duct tape. They’re looking forward to the day when we can communicate simply through our mind process or eye movements. They want us to pay bills in the future, simply by producing an encoded card or an eyelash batted in the right direction. Whether we can afford these snap decision purchases will not be their concern. When it comes to transportation, health and education though, it seems as if we are doomed to follow the more sluggish paths to progress. Why just the other day I was again contemplating the prospects of having Highway 39 and Highway 6 south twinned for the more

Norm Park All Things Considered than obvious reasons. However, these thoughts soon wandered into the realm of “what’s going to be linking Estevan with Regina and beyond 40 years from now? Sixty years from now? Will there even be rubber-tired traffic to worry about? Will rail be revived to once again carry people as well as cargo ... only more efficiently than before? Will we be using community or individual hovercraft? Will we take 15 minute flights like we take the two to three hour bus trips of today? How safe will we be? In other words, twinning one highway may be the least of our issues. Of course my wandering mind didn’t have any answers for the immediate problem either. What the heck, I’d just like to see that unpaved portion between Estevan and Macoun covered up right now. We’ll let those politicians who are shortchanged in the visionary department decide when they’ll pursue the obvious shortterm solution. Same thing with education ... visionary thoughts not really encouraged. Progressive thoughts yes, changes ... for sure. That’s a nice thing about education ... it’s always changing. Sometimes the changes

of the 49 seats the Sask. Party won in 2011, only two - both urban - were won by less than 50 per cent of the popular vote. The magnitude of how badly the NDP did in rural Saskatchewan in the last election was somewhat shocking, but we have come to expect the NDP to do poorly in rural Saskatchewan. The NDP only had one rural seat prior to 2011 - The Battlefords - which was held by Len Taylor. And in 2003 while still in government, the NDP only won Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan Rivers and The Battlefords. One would have to go back to the Roy Romanow-led NDP wins of 1991 and 1995 to find the last time we saw anything vaguely resembling an actual rural NDP caucus. Really, the NDP rural base ended with Allan Blakeney’s huge loss to Grant Devine’s Progressive Conservatives in 1982. So why haven’t the NDP done well in rural Saskatchewan? Well, there’s likely more than one reason. Even before Devine, the NDP had already grown out of touch with a changing rural Saskatchewan, which was no longer dependent on pools and co-operatives but more dependent on resource commodities like oil and potash and the free marketing of grain. One can also point to NDP government policies like closing rural hospitals in 1993, ripping up the GRIP contracts with farmers in 1991, allowing unfairly high education taxes on agricultural land, or even calling an election in the middle of harvest in 1999. But the real NDP problem in rural Saskatchewan goes back even longer than that and it begins at the top. The party

are positive. But what about the schools of the future? Will we even need schools? Gee, let’s get those communications people hooked up with the educational visionaries and see what happens! Health care? Ditto. Communication is next to nil. The apparent visionaries are still trying to figure out whether home care trumps institutional care for seniors requiring attention. Health care is definitely getting better because we’re living longer, so somebody has done something right. But costs and care are subjects still at the discussion stage. There are all kinds of advancements being made for those engaged in operating rooms and cutting edge exploratory surgeries and diagnosis, but when it comes to actual care on a costeffective model ... sorry, politicians in charge, please reduce speed ... no hasty decisions required or desired. In fact, no decisions are better, especially if a government is within two years of another campaign. I can assure you, I won’t be around in 60 years to run a check on what transpires in these wonderful worlds of communications, transportation, education and health and quite frankly, I’m not sure if I want to have the capabilities of buying a new car through the blink of an eye on a screen or by just thinking hard. I like looking at the shiny pictures in the magazines before making a decision. Boy, is that really old school, eh?

hasn’t had a rural-based leader in half a century. Biggar’s Woodrow Lloyd was the last NDP leader to represent a rural riding. That was 50 years ago. In fact, Lloyd and Tommy Douglas were the only NDP leaders who represented rural ridings. Dwain Lingenfelter was once a young farmer and Shaunavon MLA. But he left rural Saskatchewan for the safety of a city seat. In fact, the only recent NDP leadership hopefuls who could claim to be rural-based candidates were Maynard Sonntag and Nettie Wiebe. Other NDP leadership hopefuls could only claim to having been born or raised in rural Saskatchewan. For example, the candidate closest to having rural credentials in this past leadership race was Dr. Ryan Meili who was raised on a Moose Jaw area farm. By contrast, the Sask. Party has never had an urban leader or leadership candidate. New NDP leader Cam Broten goes into his new job without a rural background and without any rural caucus members. And with the new electoral boundaries preserving rural seats, the NDP has no hopes of forming government any time soon. Rebuilding the NDP’s rural base after 40 or 50 years will be that much more difficult, given that the surviving NDP rural membership is getting older. Broten will simply have to find another way to connect with rural Saskatchewan - no easy task for a leader whose connections to the rural areas are tenuous at best. He is hardly the first NDP leader to suffer this problem.

Letters to the Editor Absolutely unbelievable The Editor: I am writing this letter and am directing it at the current city council and especially at our MLA Doreen Eagles. It is absolutely unbelievable that we have let our roads get to the condition that they are in now. Everyone will agree that this is pothole season and there is really nothing we can do until work can be properly carried out. But really, how many years are we going to have to wait until a concrete plan is put into place to begin the repairs and to help save our vehicles from being shaken apart. I attended an open house meeting with the former city council in the spring of 2012 and made this suggestion: during the next civic election, I suggested that a plebiscite be added asking the taxpayers of Estevan to vote on a mill rate increase and that the money received from that mill rate increase be used strictly for road repair. I left that meeting with the understanding that that council would give it considerable thought. Fast forward a year and a half later, and during the civic election, no

plebiscite was presented. I guess the former council had no intentions of fixing the roads. City council is now in budget deliberations and as a taxpayer of Estevan and a person who is sick and tired of driving on these streets, you had better start coming up with a plan to start repairing the roads. We can’t let this go on any longer. This next part is directed at Doreen Eagles. As our MLA, is it not your job to stand up for the people of your constituency? The southeast is falling apart and all we see you do is cut ribbons or eat cake. Get in the face of the highways minister every day if you have to and get some funding for your constituency. Secure funding this year for the road repairs on 13th Avenue, not next year. That road can’t wait another year. If we could get it fixed this year, maybe we could have a ribbon for you to cut at the one end and a piece of cake to eat at the other end. I am so sick and tired of all the excuses for not doing the work. Let’s get it done. Greg Curtis, Estevan

MLA responds to Time To Twin chairwoman The Editor: I write today to respond to comments made by Marge Young on Page A2 of the March 13, 2013 edition of the Estevan Mercury. Ms. Young said, “We also heard that our MLA Doreen Eagles informed a former Estevan resident this past summer that in her opinion, Highway 39 and Highway 6 would never be twinned in her lifetime. I found that very discouraging.” She went on to say, “I thought she would be behind the effort.” I unreservedly deny this accusation! I have expressed my frustration and disappointment directly to Ms. Young, that she would repeat hearsay. I would have appreciated a call from her asking if I did in fact make those comments prior to her doing the

interview. I have lobbied for Highways 39 and 6 to be made safer and I continue to do so. I have met with the Time to Twin Committee several times and have arranged and attended meetings between this group and the minister. I will continue to meet with this committee. I do find it discouraging that Ms. Young does not research “gossip”, which in turn does not enhance the credibility of the committee, as this is not the first time corrections have had to be made regarding comments made by the committee chair. Thank you! Sincerely, Doreen Eagles MLA - Estevan

Estevan Mercury

Estevan still facing brisk housing market Housing in the Energy City continues its trend of low availability and high demand. Real estate is booming in Estevan, and prices may continue to climb through 2013, as availability is an issue for the most desired houses. “We’re short of inventory in every price range … condos. Price ranges from $150,000 to $500,000, we could use,” said Diane Jocelyn, of Estevan Real Estate Professionals. The houses that were sitting on the market at the end of 2012 are now starting to sell, she added. Lynn Chipley, owner of Century 21 Border Real Estate, said once again the housing market has become stronger. “I’ve said, I think every year, that every year the market gets stronger, and we seem to sell more properties. Certainly that was the case in 2012,” said Chipley. Since 2009, she said they have nearly doubled unit sales and dollar volume. “That’s fairly huge over a four-year period,” she added, noting that those numbers include outlying areas like Lampman, Midale and Oxbow. She said each community has shown an increase and they are doing more business outside of Estevan than they have ever done as places like Oxbow and Carnduff demonstrate a greater need for rentals. “That’s our biggest pressure, rentals. What it’s meant is things like the multi-family that have come into the city, whether they are the apartment-style condos or the townhouse-style condos. As soon as those are available, if they’re in that $200,000 to $300,000 (range), they get snapped up pretty fast.” Those are pretty typical average prices for starter condominiums, said Chipley, but it’s not an average price. Looking at houses in Estevan, a more typical range is

between $300,000 and $400,000 for single family and more than $400,000 for a brand new, single-family house. Last year was a steadily busy one, said Jocelyn. “There were a lot of sales (last year). Our inventory for the first half of the year maintained a steady balance and then increased near the end of the year,” said Jocelyn. “Toward the end of the year, it became more of a balanced market between buyers and sellers. Now we’re finding the trend to be picking up and very busy again. Maybe prices will be on the increase.” She is anticipating the climb in prices, calling the city a “brisk” market, with low availability and continued high demand. “There will be the odd bidding war,” she added. With Trimount Development’s Dominion Heights project in the northwest part of the city as well as other develop-

ment, Chipley and Jocelyn agree that those new residential spaces are having an impact on the city. “We’ll probably see some levelling in the market, I would think, with all the new homes coming on,” said Chipley. “That’s probably not a bad thing.” “It’s helping the market already,” said Jocelyn, adding, “more so as summer and fall arrive. We’re seeing it impact the market already.” “They are going to have trouble keeping up to demand,” said Chipley, regarding Trimount’s construction this year. The development at Dominion Heights will begin in the spring, with work heading through the summer and fall on both single-family residential as well as multi-family dwellings. “There’s certainly pent up demand for that. Lot sales have gone over well there. We’re probably at 85 per cent sold of the

lots that they’ve put out,” said Chipley. “There’s demand in every price range because people buy in price ranges based on what they can afford, and people generally buy the most they can afford. Everybody’s at different earning levels and different stages of their life when they come to us.” The range from $200,000 to $300,000, she said, will probably always be the most in demand. Jocelyn said the availability for two- and three-bedroom houses is almost nonexistent. “Is that normal? The last few years it has been fairly normal,” she said. While the demand for units in apartments and condos is growing, Chipley said there are still lots of single-family houses being sold. Last year, she said, there were 310 homes sold. Of those 144 were singlefamily and 165 were multi-family. That includes two of the new Petterson Point buildings, which make up 70 of the 165 multi-family units. “That is starting to be a shift,” said Chipley, who noted it used to be about a 70-30 split in favour of single-family units. The multi-family is growing throughout the Energy City and things are getting much closer to a 50-50 split. “I think it’s happening everywhere. It’s just the cost of building. If you want to bring product online, starter homes, they are going to be a smaller footprint home, like some of the smaller homes that were built on narrower lots at Hillside. Those are probably the most affordable new houses that came on the market in the last year.” People still want single-family homes, but Chipley said the lots will get smaller, making the overall footprint smaller. “It’s an interesting start to the year,” said Chipley.

River ice will be unstable say police The Estevan Police Service (EPS) has issued a warning to local citizens to keep off the ice covering the local river system. Police noted that the Saskatchewan Water Security employees have started to increase the volume of water being released from Rafferty Dam and although the rate is still low, snowmobilers and others who would generally be on the river ice should stay clear of it since the ice cover will become unstable and therefore unsafe. In other police business, EPS members attended to two motor vehicle accidents on March 13, neither of which resulted in injuries, but in both incidents a vehicle had to be towed from the scene due to damages. The first accident occurred on the west side of the city when one vehicle attempting to do a U-turn was struck on the

back end by another. The second accident happened on the east side of Estevan when a vehicle emerging from a side street turned in front of another vehicle and was struck on the side. On the night of March 17 and early morning of March 18, EPS members responded to a call regarding a possible impaired driver. The vehicle in question was spotted by police who performed a spot check and ascertained that the 23-yearold driver showed signs of impairment. He was charged with driving while impaired and driving while his blood-alcohol level was over .08 per cent. He has an April 1 court date. Police were next called to a local lounge to follow up on a report of a person urinating on the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ATM machine. The subject, who apparently mistook the ATM for a urinal, was located and arrested for being intoxicated in public and

was held in cells until he regained sobriety. Police then attended to another lounge in the city in response to a call regarding an intoxicated man who had refused to leave the premises after being asked to do so by staff. When confronted by police, the man refused to give them his name. He also showed strong signs of significant impairment so he was arrested for being intoxicated in public and lodged in cells until sober. Later that evening while on patrol, police noted a man lying on the road. They said the subject attempted to stand up several times but continued to fall down and continually lost his balance even while police approached him. The man also had a difficult time speaking to police so he was arrested for being intoxicated in public and lodged in cells for the night for his own safety.

Janet Foord accepts additional challenges By Norm Park of The Mercury Just a few days after taking on an expanded role with the Canadian School Boards Association (CSBA), Janet Foord of Estevan, who is also president of the Saskatchewan School Boards Association (SSBA), was preparing to dissect details found in the latest provincial budget that is coming down today (March 20). Foord, it was noted, was recently acclaimed vicepresident of the CSBA at their recent association gathering where Michael McEvoy defeated Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sandy Urban-Hall in an election to determine who would serve as president of that organization for the next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sandy had completed one, one-year term and was challenged by Michael this year. The policy is that you only serve two terms maximum anyway. I was asked to run for vice and did so, unopposed,â&#x20AC;? said Foord, who added that the additional role will not detract any more from her already demanding role as a trustee for Estevan at the South East Cornerstone Public School Division board table and at the provincial board levels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Canadian association has about four meetings a year. The rest is done through conference calls. I was on the board already, so vice-presidential duties wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add a whole lot extra ... maybe a few more phone calls,â&#x20AC;? she said. So while the national office is settling into a routine, the provincial body, which she heads, sent out a missive last week, serving notice to the provincial government that the SSBA expected to see a continuation of support for kindergarten to Grade 12 public education systems. She said the premier had pledged a commitment to the growth agenda and improved student achievements, so the SSBA would be looking for evidence of that in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. Eliminating the achievement gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students was one goal the two bodies had already agreed on, so Foord said she expected to see a financial and policy-driven commitment from the government to help make that happen over the next couple of years. The fact the province has been undergoing unprecedented growth in student enrolments the past couple of years is another area in which continued financial support is needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have addressed these increases in enrolments

in the past and general funding increases for educational programming have been found. There is a big ongoing concern with capital projects, though. There are a lot of school buildings that will need attention within the

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to make the students shoulder the brunt of political choices.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Janet Foord next 10 years, many of them are needing attention right now,â&#x20AC;? Foord added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government has been talking about needing to hold the line, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll put some money where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been needed and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in education. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to make the students shoulder the brunt of political choices,â&#x20AC;? she told The Mercury from her Estevan home. She said the difficult choices the government has to make are there because they have taken on sole responsibility for education funding in the province. School boards no longer have the option of getting additional money at the local community level to make up for shortfalls in provincial operating or capital funds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have found funds for education in the past. I hope they continue,â&#x20AC;? Foord said. She said she was heartened to hear the recent announcement that a working committee consisting of

Janet Foord representatives from the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA), Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM), the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Government Relations along with the SSBA, will be put together to address the issue of provincial funding for education in terms of ongoing operations as well as the capital project needs into the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to see the ministry, SARM, SUMA and us working on a solution ... working together to find a formula that will work,â&#x20AC;? Foord said in conclusion.

Estevan Mercury

Local air monitoring capabilities improving By Norm Park of The Mercury When the southeast Saskatchewan oil, gas, coal and power production companies do their work, knowing that their efforts on the environmental files are being closely monitored by an independent body, they can go about their jobs with increased confidence and professionalism. That was one prong of the business case made by the Southeast Saskatchewan Airshed Association (SESAA) and the more recently defi ned Western Yellowhead Air Management Zone to the Western Economic Diversification (WED) board that provided these two monitoring bodies $400,000 to improve their capabilities in two important economic regions of the province. The money coming from WED will be matched by industry members belonging to SESAA

and the new Yellowhead group, to enable the purchase of eight more air pointers (mobile air quality monitoring units). They will be added to the two already deployed in the southeast and one that is working in the Yellowhead zone. The value of each of these monitors is around $100,000. Te r r y G i b s o n , e x ecutive director for the SESAA, said the six air pointers that will be used throughout the southeast region will provide pretty comprehensive coverage for the 38,600 square kilometres that are embraced by SESSA. With the coal, oil, power plants, etc. emitting a certain level of pollutants, the SESSA will be able to monitor the results, closely recording the release of nitrogen oxides, hydrogen sulphides and sulphur dioxides as well as other fine particulates.

Mercury about the funding that came with a brief presentation ceremony in Regina that involved Palliser MP Ray Boughen and Gibson, the SESSA executive director said the money â&#x20AC;&#x153;was never expected, but when Western Economic Diversification first came to us some time ago to see if there were some positive things we could do with possible funding, we gave them the business case that if we did the monitoring, then the individual companies wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to. Their research and development arms would have information from us that they could use for future plans and investments in the area.â&#x20AC;? Protecting the environment while moving industry forward struck a chord at the federal level and the funds arrived last week. All eight air pointers should be purchased and readied for use within a year or two, Gibson said. He added they will all be used in the southeast and northwest regions since that is where the heavy resource sector is already at work and willing to fund and support the monitoring systems. The rest of the province can be covered and monitored later when other regions decide to come aboard. Gibson told the Regina Leader Postâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bruce Johnstone he felt there could be up to six more air monitoring zones established across the province. A s i t s t a n d s n o w, the six air pointers in the southeast and five in the northwest will give the monitoring bodies continuous readouts on an hourly basis. The first four air

Terry Gibson pointers should be operational by this summer. The data will be available to the public at www.sesaa.ca Gibson added that the Air Quality Management System established last fall by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment has dictated that air zones must be defined by the end of 2013. This means that with the non-profit SESSA already established, supported and monitoring air quality, this region of the

province is well ahead of the schedule and providing valuable information for environmentalists and business concerns. Gibson said the southeast board of directors is â&#x20AC;&#x153;doing the work and well aware of the social licence they hold to protect interests in the region. If a company wants to invest around the southeast and work the resource sector, they want to know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being monitored and the environment is being

protected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are protecting their interests by supporting it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The current board in the southeast has just recently added a few new members, so that part of the program â&#x20AC;&#x153;is pretty solid right now,â&#x20AC;? said Gibson, who is scheduled to be in Estevan to speak to members and delegates attending a safety symposium at the Saskatchewan Energy Training Institute today (March 20).

In advance of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget announcement, Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter announced there would be an 11.4 per cent increase in revenue sharing in 20132014. The increase brings the overall total cities and RMs share to more than $264.4 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue sharing program continues to provide record levels of funding to municipalities,â&#x20AC;? Reiter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The level of funding that municipalities are receiving is unique in this provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and throughout the country.â&#x20AC;? With the increase, the City of Estevan will receive $2.35 million in 2013-2014, which is roughly $254,000 more than they got in 2012-2013. News of the increase received a mixed reaction from Mayor Roy Ludwig. Although pleased to receive more operating grant money, Ludwig was disappointed that a new allocation formula was not reached. Ludwig said a number of cities felt

because they are the areas of growth in Saskatchewan, the amount of grant money allocated to them should have been higher. That proposal did not go over well with RMs and ultimately the two sides, through their respective lobby groups - Saskatchewan Urban Municipality Association and Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities - were unable to reach an agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are disappointed because we thought that we had a very good case because the growth is in the urban areas. It is happening within the cities; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter of fact statement and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the truth,â&#x20AC;? Ludwig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were hoping that the government, taking that into account, would help us out with the growth in giving us a little extra. I am disappointed as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure every city in the province will be.â&#x20AC;? Ludwig said the formula presented by SUMA would not have taken any money away from RMs, it would have just given a larger piece of the increases to the cities. Since no agreement was reached, the money will be doled out on a per capita basis using

the 2011 census figures. According to the government press release, urban municipalities will receive $170 million, RMs will get $74 million and northern municipalities will get $19.7 million. The allocations in each funding pool until 2017-18 are as follows: * Cities - 47.945 per cent * Rural municipalities - 28.254 per cent

* Towns and villages - 16.345 per cent * Northern municipalities - 7.456 per cent The release added that since its inception, the program has provided the highest amount of unconditional funding shared with municipalities by the provincial government in the history of Saskatchewan. Municipal revenue sharing has more than doubled since 2007-08.

CAFE employees appear before government committee An Estevan organization that helps people to find employment recently appeared before a parliamentary committee. Employees from Community Advocates for Employment testified before the Standing Committee on Human Resources Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities which is chaired by Souris-Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki. The committee is currently conducting a study on exploring employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After I had a meeting with Debbie Hagel, Nancy

Zeleny, Rory Flemming, and Tamarah Olaire in Estevan, it seemed to me that they were perfect candidates for appearing before the standing committee to contribute to the study we are currently undertaking,â&#x20AC;? Komarnicki said through a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pleased to recommend them as witnesses and to arrange for them to appear via video conference from Regina. I certainly appreciated their effort to make it happen, including preparing an extensive brief and additional material for the committee to review.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;MP Ed Komarnicki had a meeting with us in

Estevan early in the new year to discuss the provision of specialized service to individuals with multiple barriers to employment, as well as transitioning youth with disabilities from high school to the world of work or post-secondary education, including issues relating to funding,â&#x20AC;? said executive director Debbie Hagel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Subsequent to the meeting, we were asked whether

we were prepared to appear for the standing committee via teleconference to share our thoughts and views regarding the study from a community perspective.â&#x20AC;? Also appearing before the committee were transition coordinator Nancy Zeleny who has firsthand experience in dealing with transitioning youth to employment, and James Noble, someone who

has experienced the support of CAFĂ&#x2030; while transitioning to attending the University of Regina to enroll in a prejournalism program. Noble has first hand experience in what is involved in a practical way in making his attendance at university a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youth in our Transition Program often just need a bit of extra encouragement to empower them to reach the goals

and dreams that they hope to achieve. By supporting them in those goals, we are thrilled to see them go on to successful post-secondary or employment opportunities resulting in a positive outcome. James is a shining example of this process,â&#x20AC;? said Zeleny. Hagel said the group enjoyed the opportunity to speak to the committee and contribute to their study.

Estevan Mercury

Another kidnapper sentenced to 20 months jail One more person accused in a kidnapping case from the May long weekend in 2011 was sentenced on Monday. Spencer Persson was barely 18 years old when he was involved as part of a group of seven who kidnapped and assaulted of two men and one woman. Five of those accused were sentenced earlier this year, with jail terms ranging from 10 to 30 months. In Estevan provincial court March 18, the now 20-year-old Persson was sentenced to 20 months in jail, having previously pleaded guilty to charges of forcible confinement and assault causing bodily harm. The incident began when the victims were accused of breaking into a house and stealing about $1,000 worth of cocaine. The seven co-accused, including Persson, then rounded up both men and the woman and drove them east of Estevan to a grid road past Shand Power Station. The group had some weapons with them, including an imitation of a handgun and a bat or tire iron. When the group stopped outside the city, the two males were taken out of the vehicle and assaulted, as the co-accused demanded some form of payment for the allegedly stolen cocaine. Persson took part in the assault of the two men, who were struck with both the imitation handgun and other weapons. The Crown prosecutor didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say if Persson used one of the weapons, but it was clear he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the one wielding the gun. The female victim told the captors she would get $1,000 from her dad, so everyone was put back into the cars and driven back to Estevan. When they arrived at Spectra Credit Union, the police were waiting, so the groups decided to drive elsewhere in

Spencer Persson the city. Eventually the woman was let go near the credit union, and the two men were taken home. Six of the co-accused, Persson included, were then tracked down and arrested quickly, while the seventh fled

to British Columbia and was arrested some weeks later. The Crown prosecutor noted Persson was not a primary part of this plot, but his involvement was still very serious. His sentence is in line with his co-accused, as two other men in the group were sentenced to 20 months. Persson must submit a DNA sample and is subject to a 10-year firearms prohibition. In other court proceedings, Justin Garrow appeared in custody via closed-circuit television, answering to a charge of assault causing bodily harm. He pleaded not guilty to the charge, which the Crown noted was an indictable one. Electing to be tried at the provincial court level, a trial was scheduled for March 26, after space had opened up. Judge Karl Bazin also gave his decision on the voir dire in the case of Michael Shier, charged with assaulting a peace officer. Shier was intoxicated at the time of the incident and entered a police cruiser. When the officer asked why he was in the car, Shier got out and swung at the officer and failed to connect with his punch. He was subsequently arrested. During the trial, the defence suggested Shier was not in control of himself. Bazin ultimately decided that he did not believe automatism had any relevance in the events, placing all culpability on Shier. After a brief sentencing argument between the Crown and defence, Bazin suspended the sentence for 12 months, placing Shier on a number of conditions, including a curfew from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. for the first three months. He must also seek assessments and treatment for alcohol and complete 50 hours of community service.

Sask. politicians support Keystone pipeline Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conservative caucus, which includes SourisMoose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki, has issued a statement on the growing criticism from Canadian and Saskatchewan leaders on Thomas Mulcairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attack on Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national interests and opposition to Keystone XL. In a release signed by all Saskatchewan MPs and senators they said the Conservative government is focused on creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for Canadians. The Keystone XL Pipeline will create thousands of well paying jobs in both countries and is in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conservative caucus has been strongly supportive of this job creating project, Mulcairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NDP has yet again demonstrated that they will travel abroad to talk down Canada and put

narrow political interests ahead of job creation and economic growth in Saskatchewan,â&#x20AC;? the statement said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mulcairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NDP has come out squarely against resource development, calling it a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;disease.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As a result, Mulcairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NDP is off-side with an important sector of Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy and future prosperity. Mulcair is becoming increasingly isolated by opposing the Keystone project, with even Saskatchewan NDP leader Cam Broten, albeit reluctantly joining the chorus of Canadians who support job creation in Saskatchewan. Mulcairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NDP is actively undermining Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests abroad through his vocal opposition to the creation of Canadian jobs, trade and responsible resource development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While our Conservative Caucus is making the case for this job creating project and standing-up for Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy and workers, the Mulcair NDP continues to undermine our economy and national interests here in Saskatchewan and abroad.â&#x20AC;?

Govâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t will cap motorcycle insurance increase Motorcyclists in Saskatchewan have spoken and the provincial government was listening. Following concern from motorcycle owners regarding significant insurance rate hikes proposed by SGI, Minister responsible for SGI Donna Harpauer has asked the corporation to amend its rate proposal to cap increases for motorcycles at 15 per cent. In addition, Harpauer has directed SGI to review its rating approach for motorcycles, including the injury benefit levels provided in the insurance coverage, and to examine ways to improve motorcycle safety programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We heard loud and clear from the motorcycle community that the proposed increases would cause unreasonable financial hardship for bike enthusiasts, and could

negatively impact business owners who deal in motorcycle and related equipment sales,â&#x20AC;? Harpauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked SGI to implement caps on these hikes to reduce rate shock for motorcycle owners. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also asked SGI to look at other options in terms of coverage levels and increased safety programs that ultimately will help reduce the claim costs associated with motorcycles.â&#x20AC;? Under SGIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revised proposal, increases for motorcycles with annual rates greater than $1,000 will be capped at a maximum of 15 per cent. Motorcycles with annual rates of $1,000 or less will be subject to a dollar cap instead of a percentage cap, with a maximum increase of $150 annually. SGI will undertake formal consultations with

motorcycle stakeholders this spring, but in the meantime any comments or feedback on the rating structure for motorcycles, safety programs or benefit levels can be sent to motorcycles@sgi.sk.ca. The proposed rates for all vehicles will be revised to accommodate the new capping guideline, and the revised rates will be posted on SGIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www. sgi.sk.ca. If approved, the rate changes would be effective August 31, 2013. The revised rate proposal will be posted on the Saskatchewan Rate Review Panelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (SRRP) website at www.saskratereview.ca within the next few days. Comments on the rate proposal can be provided to SRRP through its website, or by calling toll free 1-877-368-7075 or emailing feedback@ saskratereview.ca.

Sadness over discarded art project An art project that contained work by a number of local children has been lost to the trash pile. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Energizedâ&#x20AC;? tile pyramid that had been located in the Estevan Shoppers Mall since 2009 was recently tossed into the garbage by mall management. The pyramid included 193 individually decorated tiles

pyramid, which part of the Art in Life committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing work to add projects throughout the community, had begun to lose tiles over the past year and a half as the grout gave way. She had been checking up on the project every six months or so to refasten any tiles that had come loose. She said on each occasion, she would inform mall mainte-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hung up the phone and I burst into tears.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gale Tytlandsvik by Estevan and Bienfait students from the 2007 Grade 3 classes. Gale Tytlandsvik, who was part of the group that put the project together, said she was shocked and saddened to learn the item was discarded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hung up the phone and I burst into tears,â&#x20AC;? Tylandsvik said in an interview Friday. Tytlandsvik said the tile

nance workers that she was there and they explained to her that they had her name and telephone number and would call Tytlandsvik if needed. Just prior to Christmas, Tytlandsvik was in the mall and noticed the pyramid was no longer on display. After speaking to someone from the mall, she learned that it had been placed

in a storage area. She asked the person to leave the pyramid in the storage area until she could get some volunteers from the Estevan Comprehensive School together to dismantle it so the tiles could be placed elsewhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said can we put it here until we find a decent home for it and they said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sure, that would be fine, if we need it moved, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let you know.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I was talking to the maintenance lady, I did not call the mall office, I guess. In all reality, I guess that is what I should have done. But she said it was no problem and that they had my name still up on the board if we needed anything.â&#x20AC;? Tytlandsvik said in early March she called the mall and spoke to manager Mike Pickering who informed her that the pyramid had been thrown out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I phoned him the other day and said we are coming to take the tiles off the pyramid and he said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ya, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that is around here anymore,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she explained. Tytlandsvik said she proceeded to ask where the pyramid had gone and was told that be-

cause they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who it belonged to, it was tossed in the dumpster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said I was told I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to contact you, you had my name and number and if you needed anything youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d let me know. I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I know there was a big sign up in the office, I saw it myself on a big 8x10 sheet of paper,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Tytlandsvik who noted there was also an identifying plaque on the pyramid. Tytlandsvik added that the pyramid held special meaning to her aside from being involved in its creation as one of the tiles was done by her daught e r. S h e said a number of stu-

dents had also told her how proud they were to have a piece of art on display in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids had a piece of art in the city and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (the mallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) to throw away. I know one of the girls had painted a tile on there in memory of her dad. That was her tile to honour her dad on there. People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any appreciation for art.â&#x20AC;? The Mercury contacted Pickering to comment on the story but were informed he was not interested in discussing the topic in the newspaper.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played this team this tough, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely proud of.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peewee AA Bruins head coach Jeff Pierson on his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5-2 playoff loss to Yorkton on Sunday.

Bruins left winger Calder Neufeld carries the puck as Yorkton Terriers rearguard Austin Bourhis defends during Game 4 of the Sherwood Conference semis on Thursday.

Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; journey comes to an end Terriers eliminate Bruins in five games in Sherwood semis Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all over but the soul-searching. The CanElson Drilling Estevan Bruins saw their season come to an end on Saturday, losing 6-3 to the Yorkton Terriers in Game 5 of their Sherwood Conference semifinal series. The two teams split the first two games of the series, but the first-place Terriers proceeded to win three straight contests to close it out. Yorkton had won the previous two games by identical 2-1 scores, on Tuesday at home and Thursday at Spectra Place. On Saturday, Terriers forward Patrick Martens continued his tear, scoring a hat trick to bring his series total to seven goals. The Bruins, despite outshooting Yorkton 21-6 in the first period, found themselves down 2-1 after 20 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we came out with a lot of energy and a lot of enthusiasm. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked to play a smarter game at that point. Being down 2-1 coming out of it was tough,â&#x20AC;? said Bruins head coach Keith Cassidy, who added that his team hit a crossbar in the dying seconds of the period. Martens struck first, at the 3:50 mark, and Jeremy Johnson made it 2-0 Yorkton with a shorthanded goal at 13:12. Calder Neufeld got the Bruins on the board at 15:07. It was more of the same in the second period, as Kailum Gervais restored the Terriersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two-goal lead midway through the period.

The Bruins drew within a goal again thanks to a Hudson Morrison power play marker at 13:05. However, Martens would add his second of the game barely four minutes later to put the home side ahead 4-2 after two. Martens and Neufeld traded goals 44 seconds apart just past the halfway point of the frame, and Tyler Giebel would add an empty net goal with six seconds left. The Bruins led the shots tally 39-27. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that we did anything particularly bad that game. We certainly gave every ounce of effort that we had. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick out any glaring team defensive errors,â&#x20AC;? Cassidy said. On Thursday, meanwhile, Giebel scored the winner with 6:16 to play on a bad-angle shot from the right wing. Wyatt Garagan had tied the game for the Bruins at the 5:13 mark, taking a centring pass from Brett Dumaine behind the yet and burying it behind Terriers goalie Dawson MacAuley. Yorkton defenceman Brady Norrish opened the scoring late in the first period on a spectacular end-to-end rush, deking out several Bruins players before getting in alone and scoring on Bruins goalie Curtis Martinu. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw some uncharacteristic mistakes from guys that are generally dependable,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were pressing hard too, and I gotta hand it to (Martinu), I thought that

was his best game of the series so far and he, again, gave us a chance to win.â&#x20AC;? Yorkton carried the shots 36-29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In terms of effort and in terms of wanting to win, I think we certainly played to our potential. In talking with most of the guys (Monday), theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very upset and disappointed that we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go further than that and rightfully so, but in terms of asking the guys to do more, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure ... Games 3 and 4 were one-goal games we certainly had a chance to win,â&#x20AC;? Cassidy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I certainly think we were a whole lot closer as a team during that series than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been most of the year. Cassidy said one major reason for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggles this season was the loss of Calder Neufeld to a high ankle sprain that kept him out for most of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Losing a guy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected to be your leading pointgetter six games into the year is a very tough thing. That was one thing I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we were able to overcome. A lot of the expectations that were dropped on some of the other guys werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to be lived up to,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some instances, I think it was unfair that we dropped those responsibilities on those guys.â&#x20AC;? The Bruins will lose seven 20-year-olds to graduation: Martinu, Milligan, Neufeld, centre Cole Olson, right winger Dylan Smith, right winger Tyler Paslawski and centre Alex Cote.

Apex Bruins eliminated in league semis There were reasons to be optimistic, but in the end, the Estevan Apex Bruins couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t knock off the Moose Jaw Warriors in their South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League semifinal series. A 7-2 loss to the Warriors on Saturday in Game 2 of the series gave Moose Jaw the sweep and marked the end of the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season. The opener on Thursday in Moose Jaw was much closer, with the home side eking out a 4-3 victory. Apex Bruins head coach Dalton Giblett said one of the reasons they were swept by the fourth-place Warriors is that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take advantage of their scoring chances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score on our opportunities. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be times where we would have pressure on them and be outworking them and we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d

come down and score one on us,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between that and the number of penalties we took, you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that and expect to win hockey games, especially at this time of year.â&#x20AC;? In Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, the teams were tied 3-3 after two periods before Moose Jaw got the winner from Braydon Delorme with 8:58 to play. The Bruins struck first, with Steven Henderson scoring only two minutes into the game. But the Warriors responded with three goals before the end of the frame. Blake Crosbie tied the game with a power-play marker at 8:29, and Riley Cannon would give Moose Jaw their first lead 72 seconds later. The Warriors took a two-goal lead when Ty An-

Apex Bruins forward Preston Hutt bumps Moose Jaw goaltender Thomas Spence during the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 7-2 loss on Saturday, which eliminated them from the playoffs. derson scored a shorthanded goal at 16:53. The Bruins would pull even in the second period though, beginning with Ryley Giblettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal at 13:51. Estevan netted a shorthanded tally of their own from Kaelan Holt at the 18:37 mark, levelling the game 3-3.

Moose Jaw outshot Estevan 35-23. Tanner Tytlandsvik was in goal for the Bruins. It was a different story on Saturday at Spectra Place, with the Warriors dominating the second half of the game. They got on the board first, with Drew Nimegeers scoring at 7:41 of the first.

Marc Shaw, who was the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular season goals leader with 29, tied it up on a power play midway through the period. Kaleb Bell restored Moose Jawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead with just four seconds left in the period. Despite the Bruins creating some good chances early in the second period, the Warriors would score the next goal nine minutes in, courtesy of Braydon Delorme, on a quick play off the face-off. Giblett said that goal turned the tide for good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think (in) the first part of the game, nerves got the best of us. Then in the second period, we took it to them at the start and we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score and then they come down and score. Once they got that third goal, that broke our backs right there.

You could kind of see it on the bench too,â&#x20AC;? he said. The visitors would score their third of four power-play goals on the night at 14:02 of the second, when Cannon snuck the puck in at the side of the net. And the Warriors didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there, with Brett Bookout scoring only 17 seconds into the third to put them ahead 5-1. The Bruins got one goal back at 5:36 courtesy of Kyle Salaway, after he tapped in a pass by Tanner Jeannot from the corner. But the Warriors would tack on two more goals. Delorme scored his second of the game at 9:06 on a backhander top shelf, and Crosbie closed out the scoring at 11:29 after a Bruins giveaway along the boards. The team will lose six players due to graduation.

Peewee AAs put up fight in opener

Then, almost eight minutes into the third, Cole Fonstad fed Ryder Pierson for a breakaway, and he made no mistake to tie the game. But it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long, as with nine minutes left, Yorktonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carter Lake

buried a shot glove side on Bruins goalie Cody Levesque, who catches right. The Terriers added an insurance goal with 2:17 to play, as Miller, the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scoring leader, scored on an odd-man rush. Taphorn would add an empty netter with a minute to go.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought for the most part in the third period, we

dominated them. We spent a lot of time in their zone,

we had a lot of chances. (But) the one thing with Yorkton is when you make a mistake, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make you pay,â&#x20AC;? said Pierson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played this team this tough, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely proud of. We find a way to compete with a team that went 20-0 in the league and has lost one game all year. We gave them everything they can handle and more. Their coaches had to coach this game.â&#x20AC;? Game 2 of the best-ofthree series was set to go last night in Yorkton, and Pierson said the Game 1 effort has him optimistic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sent a message to Yorkton that we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lying down, and I have a lot of confidence going in there Tuesday that we can play with them.â&#x20AC;?

Chargers lose in final Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s female bantam A hockey program fell short of producing its second straight provincial champion on Saturday. The Estevan Chargers lost 5-4 to Saskatoon in Game 2 of the provincial final on Saturday in Saskatoon. They had lost the opener 5-1 on Thursday at the Civic Auditorium, giving Saskatoon a 10-5 win in the two-game, total-goal series. The Chargers are made up of players from both the Power Dodge Chargers and Dayman Trucking Bulldogs.

Mariah McKersie scored twice for the Chargers in Game 2 on Saturday, with Megan LeBlanc and Michaella Matthies also chipping in goals. On Thursday, Matthies had the lone goal for Estevan. The Chargers were still alive in league action, however. They tied the Fort Quâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Appelle Flyers 4-4 in Game 1 of their semifinal series on Monday in Fort Quâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Appelle, with Game 2 of the total-goal series going last night at the Civic. A win would send the

Chargers to the league final against the South West Cyclones. In the opener, Ashton Magotiaux, Megan LeBlanc, Matthies and Kailey McLellan scored for Estevan. Meanwhile, the Estevan Baxter Cougars lost narrowly in their semifinal in the midget A division of the South Saskatchewan Female Hockey League. The Cougars fell 5-3 to Fort Quâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Appelle at the Icon Centre on Thursday, and tied 2-2 in the second game on the road Monday, giving the Flyers a 7-5 series win.

They couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold on, but the Estevan Sherritt Coal Bruins gave the Yorkton Terriers a scare in the opener of their secondround league playoff series on Sunday. Yorkton won the game 5-2 on the strength of three goals in the final nine minutes of the game. After falling behind 2-0 following the first period, the Bruins clawed their way back with a goal in the second and another in the third to tie the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The score) isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a reflection at all of the game. We played with these guys from the drop of the puck,â&#x20AC;? said Bruins head coach Jeff Pierson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boys knew they were still in the game (after two periods). They believed that they had a chance to win this, which is big in itself, and they just kept fighting.â&#x20AC;? Yorkton struck twice quickly in the fi rst, with goals from Keenan Taphorn and Carson Miller coming 22 seconds apart about five minutes in.

ECS senior girls ousted at regionals The Estevan Comprehensive School senior girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team saw their season come to an end on the weekend at regionals. The girls lost their opening game at 4A regionals in Wilcox, going down to defeat 59-45 against Warman. The Elecs led 11-10 after the first quarter and trailed only 22-20 at half, but they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to hang on in the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls practised hard and I thought I prepared them pretty well for Warman,â&#x20AC;? said Elecs head coach Jessie Smoliak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My girls came out ready to play in the first half. Warman had two posts over six feet, so we had to double on the posts any time that they got the ball in the paint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone was in the game, the bench, the fans and the girls on the court.â&#x20AC;? But Warman came out strong in the second, scoring eight points in the first three minutes to put together a 10-point cushion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up, because we fought back to only be down by seven going into the final quarter,â&#x20AC;? said Smoliak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We honestly just ran out of steam and their posts finally started to finish their shots down low.â&#x20AC;? Despite the loss, Smoliak said the

game was â&#x20AC;&#x153;by far their best basketballâ&#x20AC;? of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am looking forward to next season already, after watching my Grade nine, 10s and 11s play,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really happy to see that they played as a team. They played with a lot of heart this weekend and I am proud of them.â&#x20AC;? Kristen Skjonsby and Tess Lindquist were the Elecsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top two scorers in the game, with Skjonsby scoring nine points. Jayana Brown was Warmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top scorer with 23 points. The Elecs later played a consolation game against Regina Miller, losing 50-45. ECS led 24-20 at the half. Lindquist led Estevan with 10 points. The ECS senior boys were eliminated in conference play on March 9 on home court, losing their first game 99-50 to Weyburn. Meanwhile, the second game of the 78th annual McLeod Series against Weyburn has been cancelled for good due to a combination of weather conditions and mechanical difficulties with one of the nets in the ECS gym. Weyburn led 171-84 after the first leg Feb. 5 in Weyburn.

Hawrylak makes playoffs The Lane Hawrylak team from Estevan made it to the playoffs at the juvenile 17-and-under provincial curling championship in Shaunavon on the weekend. The Hawrylak rink bowed out in the 3 versus 4 playoff game, against Team Evenson of Frontier, in the open division. The team also includes third Chaelynn Kitz (Oxbow), second Taylor Marcotte (Torquay), lead Jana Dunnigan (Oxbow) and coach Shane Kitz (Oxbow). The Estevan foursome began the tournament on Thursday morning with a 7-5 loss to Team Taylor from the Battlefords. With the game tied in the eighth end, Hawrylak came up short on a draw to give up a steal of two. In their second game, the rink defeated Team Ross of Swift Current 8-5. Hawrylak made a hit in the eighth end for the win. The final game of the round-robin saw the local rink hammer Team Mac-

Neil of Shaunavon by a score of 9-1 in six ends. Their 2-1 record sent the team into a tie-breaker against the same Swift Current team, and Hawrylak won again, this time 10-3.

Strippers in action The Estevan Strippersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two hockey teams attended the Barons International Hockey Tournament in Grand Forks on the weekend as one of 80 teams playing. The 40-plus team posted a 3-1 record en route to winning their division. They began with a 5-4 win over the Winnipeg Penguins, on the strength of four goals in the second period. Next, they lost 7-4 to the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets took a 4-0 lead in the first period and never looked back. In their third game, the Strippers hammered the Winnipeg Goldeyes 7-1, thanks largely to a 5-0 lead after the first period. That sent the Strippers to the final, where they beat the Winnipeg Coyotes 7-2.

Due to a bus failure, some players were late to the game, but the Strippers managed to take a 2-1 lead after one period despite being shorthanded. Once the rest of the players showed up, the Strippers cruised to victory. The 50-plus team was at a disadvantage from the start, playing in the 45-plus division, but they started on the right foot with a 3-2 comeback win over the Winnipeg Crippled Crows in their opener. Next, they lost 9-2 to the much younger Portage la Prairie Terriers, including a 6-0 deficit after one period. The Strippers were blown out again in their third game, losing 8-1 to the St. Paul Saints. Their lone goal came in the third period.

But the Strippers ended the tournament on a positive note, defeating the East Grand Forks Chiefs 6-2 in the C division final. They took a 4-0 lead in the first period. On Friday, several members of the Strippers attended the first game of a Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoff series between the University of North Dakota and Michigan Tech, with UND winning 5-3. Meanwhile, the 31st annual Estevan Strippersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Molson Spring Bust tournament is coming up. The annual oldtimersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; event will run from April 3-7. It has expanded to 36 teams this year, including six womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams, three of them from Manitoba.

Estevan Mercury

Local buys BCHL team Bantam As eliminated Two Saskatchewan men will be at the helm of the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the British Columbia Hockey League next season. One of them is Estevan businessman Cory Wanner, who became the Capitalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new majority owner earlier this month. The other is former La Ronge Ice Wolves head coach Bob Beatty, who is now the Capitalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach and general manager.

Beatty, who spent 17 seasons coaching in the SJHL with Humboldt and La Ronge, joined Cowichan Valley in late February. Wanner could not be reached for comment on Monday. Beatty told the Cowichan Valley Citizen earlier this month that he and Wanner came to the team as a package deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had talked a couple of years ago and he asked me

if he got a team would I be willing to coach. At the time he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where it was going to be,â&#x20AC;? Beatty told the Citizen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a young, successful businessman. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got seven kids. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a busy guy,â&#x20AC;? Beatty added. The Capitals, located on Vancouver Island, struggled this season. They posted a 13-35-1-7 record, finishing last in the Island division and last in the BCHL.

The Estevan Century 21 Bruins were among the many local minor hockey teams to close out their season recently. The bantam A team lost 4-2 to Southey in the third and deciding game of their first-round playoff series on March 12. Southey had won the opener 6-0 at home on March 2, with Estevan winning Game 2 8-2 at

home on March 11. In Game 3, Southey never trailed en route to the win. Jarred Gibson got them on the board just 42 seconds in, and Luke Klarer made it 2-0 at the 4:27 mark. Affiliated player Cole Fonstad scored for the Bruins nine minutes into the game, and Southey led 2-1 after the first period.

The home side scored the only goal in the second, courtesy of Dryden Hubick, at the eight-minute mark. Shae Little got the Bruins within one goal early in the third, at the 4:08 mark, but Eric Cockwill gave Southey some insurance with a goal four minutes later. Ethan Veroba was in goal for the Bruins.

March 20, 2013 B5

The end of a season to be forgotten â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the end/Beautiful friend/This is the end/My only friend, the end/Of our elaborate plans, the end.â&#x20AC;? OK, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to say Jim Morrison and I are talking about entirely different things here. But it fits. The Estevan Bruins had elaborate plans. There were high expectations. There were hopes that this might finally be the year the team would treat their fans to a deep playoff run. They all came crashing down on March 16 in the first round of the playoffs. A season that began with a 10-2 defeat in Melville ended with a five-game series loss in Yorkton. Although the Bruins played a bit better down the stretch and into the playoffs, giving fans a glimmer of hope that they might play to their potential at the right time, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get them far. Sure, they won their first game outside the survivor series since 2007 (what an incredible mark of futility, by the way) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough. With the team the Bru-

ins had on paper to begin the season, with several 1993-born forwards poised to break out and a strong defence corps, I felt the south final was a realistic target, and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone in that. Yes, a pair of significant season-long injuries didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help. Even though the team found a very capable replacement in Curtis Martinu, the loss of Steven Glass seemed to take its toll on morale, even though the club still got stellar goaltending. Glass is a popular player in the dressing room and he had been expected to take a step forward in his development after a strong rookie season. The bigger loss was left winger Calder Neufeld, who went down after six games with a high ankle sprain and only returned to play a regular shift in February. After losing Dylan Smith to the Eastern Junior Hockey League, having Neufeld lost to injury was a major blow. Neufeld had 34 goals and 67 points last year and

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out the Bruins would struggle to score all year long without him. Still, there were other factors. Coaching was certainly one, and with Keith Cassidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract up â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there is a mutual option for a third year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the biggest decision for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive will be whether to keep him or move on. There has never been much continuity behind the bench, and letting Cassidy go after two years would only add to that, but there is a strong urge to turn the team around. Another reason for the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; struggles was that most of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;93s expected to improve and become core contributors actually regressed.

Taylor Reich went from 32 points as a rookie to 11 this year. Matt Brykaliuk went from 20 points to 18.

Then again, maybe the players who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take that next step this season will thrive next year. You just never know in junior hockey.

Austin Yano went from a dazzling 27-point rookie season to a woeful start and a December trade to Kindersley. Suddenly a team that looked to be going into the high end of the cycle might not be headed in that direction at all. Wi t h t h e l i k e s o f Neufeld, Dylan Smith and Cole Olson graduating, the Bruins are looking very thin up front next year.

Contact Josh Lewis at 634-2654 or sports@ estevanmercury.ca. This winter is starting to become that guy who gets way too drunk and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave your house at 4 a.m. Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over, winter. Go home.

Junior midgets out The Estevan Blue Rock junior midget Bruins were eliminated from playoff contention on March 13 after losing Game 2 of their league semifinal series. The Bruins lost 5-3 to the Regina Wild at Spectra Place to give the Wild a twogame sweep. They had won the opener 6-0 on March 10. The Wild took a 2-0 lead after the first period, with both goals coming from Karter Parisloff, who

would go on to record a hat trick. Parisloffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first goal came just 90 seconds into the game, and he scored again at the 7:26 mark. But the Bruins bounced back in the middle frame to tie the game. Kalen Roche got Estevan within a goal at 3:24 of the second, and Colton Winton, playing as an affiliated player, squared it up at 12:25.

But Parisloffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hat trick goal was a back-breaker, coming with just five seconds to go in the period to give the Wild a 3-2 lead. They built on that edge in the third, with Riley Orchard making it 4-2 five minutes into the period. Eric Kratz scored with 3:22 to play to give the Wild a three-goal lead. Karson Whitman would reply 41 seconds later for the Bruins.

Riders hockey event postponed Members of the Saskatchewan Roughriders had planned to entertain fans in Estevan on Sunday, but Mother Nature had other ideas. The Rider Pride Hockey Challenge, featuring a hockey game between the Riders and local players, was postponed earlier in the day due to weather conditions. No makeup date has been announced, but all parties are hopeful that the event will still go ahead before the Ridersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season begins. The roster of players coming included Chris Getzlaf, Brendon LaBatte, Neal Hughes, Jordan Sisco, Ben Heenan, Chris Milo,

Paul Woldu, Chris Best, Dan Clark, Scott McHenry, Xavier Fulton, Patrick Neufeld, Keith Shologan, Brent Hawkins, Eddie Russ Jr. and Brandon West. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear if that will remain the same when the event is made up. Meanwhile, the Estevan football family announced on Sunday that its April 13 fund-

raising dinner has already been sold out. The dinner, announced last week, will see Riders receivers Weston Dressler and Geroy Simon and head coach Corey Chamblin as guest speakers. The group is still taking names for a waiting list in case tickets become available.

Pagliero coaching Utica squad Former Estevan Bruins goaltender Juliano Pagliero is now a coach, and his team played in the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Division 3 Frozen Four on Friday night. Pagliero is an assistant coach with the Utica College (N.Y.) Pioneers. Utica lost 5-1 to the Wisconsin-Eau Claire Blugolds in the semifinals of the D3 Frozen Four tournament on Friday in Lake Placid, N.Y. It was Uticaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Frozen Four appearance in the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12-year history. Wisconsin Eau-Claire went on to defeat Oswego State 5-3 in the national championship game.

Combines pull off shocker to advance to final The Arcola-Kisbey Combines pulled off a stunning upset last week, coming back from the abyss to knock off the Midale Mustangs in the Big Six Hockey League semis. The Combines, trailing 2-0 in the best-of-five series, reeled off three straight wins to advance to the league final. They will now take on the firstplace Bienfait Coalers. The final was scheduled to begin last night in Bienfait. Game 2 is Thursday in Arcola, Game 3 is Friday in Bienfait and Game 4 is Sunday in Arcola.

If necessary, Game 5 will go Monday in Bienfait and Game 6 is March 27 in Arcola. Game 7, should it be needed, has not been scheduled yet. All games will start at 8 p.m., except for Game 4 on Sunday, which begins at 7. To get to the final, the Combines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who finished in fifth place in the regular season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; managed to shut out the Mustangs in back-to-back games. After winning Game 3 on March 9 by a score of 3-2 to get back in the series, Arcola followed that up with a 3-0 win on home ice on March 13.

They capped off the rally with a resounding 5-0 victory in Midale on Friday. The Combines are playing with no shortage of inspiration after the Dec. 11 car accident that took the lives of teammates Brennan Luffman and Shaun Seghers. Bienfaitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brennan Wrigley led the playoff scoring race going into the final, with seven goals and 17 points. Teammate Payden Benning was close behind with 10 goals and 14 points. Arcolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kent Sauter and Troy Miller were third and fourth, with 11 points each.

ECS drama team offering up Figments, a full length comedy Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a musical this year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a full-length comedy production for the Estevan Comprehensive Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drama department. Figments, a play written by Billy St. John, tells the story of another playwright, Rick Jacobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; who attempts to overcome writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s block. Four segments of Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imagination play out in the opening scene of his next murder mystery. Then the real people in his life and the figments of his imagination clash in hilarious fashion with the fictional characters in his play. The production is offered to the public on March 21 and 22 at 7 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock each evening in the ECS Cafetorium. Tickets are available at the door and a concession service is offered before the show and during intermission. The doors open at 6:30 both evenings. Josh Pele takes

on the demanding role of Rick Jacobs in the ECS production that is being directed by Kathy Brown and Allison Holzer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re keeping it simple this year, no major musical, but a very entertaining production. The kids have their lines down solid now, the only problem has been getting the whole cast together on one stage enough times to have a complete rehearsal,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These kids are all so busy doing so many other things, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to get them together,â&#x20AC;? she added during a March 14 after school rehearsal. Shaylee Foord is assuming the role of Loni Wagner in the play, while Beatrice â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mamaâ&#x20AC;? Jacobs is played by Philippa Williams and Matt Santori is played by Cooper Monroe in the cast representing the real characters. Those taking on the roles of Jacobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; figments of imagination include Jacqueline Peeace and Tucker Monroe as Veronica and David, while Kyle Goulet and Katelyn Pippus are Winston and Louise.

Those playing the roles of Loni No. 2 and Rick (Jacobs) No. 2 are Chanel Thievin and Jayden Dayman. Matt No. 2 and Mama No. 2 are roles played by Cole Davenport and Kaylee MacKenzie. Pop and Sarah, two other figments, are played by Logan Pryor and Paige Orser. The technical person for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ECS production is Taylin Dosch while set designs are being handled by Matt Shuya, Charles Lang and Kyle Whitehead. The costume designer is Dallas Monroe and props are under the direction of Heather Findlay and Anna Lawrence. Laurel Reimche is handling the duties of program production, printing and advertising and Brian Wright is in charge of the video recordings. Make-up assistance is provided by Joyce Mack and Wade Kotelo is doing the artistic construction. The concession refreshments will be managed by Ardelle Pearson and the ECS Baking Club.

Katelyn Pippus, playing the role of Louise, shrinks away in terror as Winston, played by Kyle Goulet threatens her in the ECS comedy production of Figments, which will be presented to Estevan audiences on March 21 and 22 in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cafetorium each evening, beginning at 7 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock. Tickets are available at the door.

Intimate Home Routes concert series will feature classical pianist The schedule for this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Classical Home Routes concert series is wrapping up on Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. when concert pianist Madeline Hildebrand of Winnipeg will be entertaining guests at the home of Shirley Andrist. This will be the conclusion to a second season of home concerts that bring classical musicians into intimate residential settings in Estevan and area for an evening of music and social engagement with a host family, guests who appreciate the music and the musicians themselves. The series, which began with three home concerts last year, was expanded to four for the second year, said local organizers. Besides Andrist, the hosts this year have again included Evanne Wil-

helm and Arlene Lafrentz, who were repeat hosts, and Wilma Mantei, who opened her home for an event this year for the first time. The concerts are promoted by the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg and are under the direction of Mel Braun, artistic director for the series. This season the concerts have included visits from a mezzo soprano, alto saxophone player and a cellist. Hildebrand will bring her classical piano stylings into Andristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home which features a grand piano thanks to the fact that the family includes classical pianists who find the instrument handy at all times when they return for visits. Andrist and others say it quickly becomes obvious that the artists involved in

Madeline Hildebrand these smaller concert ar- like nothing better than to rangements, who are used to share their art and talent with performing on large stages, listeners at close quarters

while sharing a conversation with their small audience. Hildebrandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerts in the past have included a dynamic performance of Prokofievâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Piano Concerto with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Her credentials include a master of music degree from the University of British Columbia where she studied with distinguished Canadian pianist Jane Coop. Hildebrand has been awarded several scholarships and appeared in various venues including a premier at the Manitoba Clusterfest Concert Series and across the Prairies, as well as the Eastern European Cultural Festival and as an accompanist with Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Youth Choir. Andrist said the concert hosts can usually accommodate between 25 and 40

people and the extent of the hosting efforts are dictated by the homeowners themselves and the space that is used. Hildebrand, it was noted, is just coming off a successful 2012 season where she captured the important Doris McLellan competition title for live solo performance ... which was the Prokofiev Concerto. This netted her the $8,000 first prize. Hildebrand has been described as an energetic performer who can conquer a challenging repertoire with flair and brilliant execution, according to a recent review from the Squamish Chief Press. In May, Hildebrand will be competing in the semifinals of the Eckhardt Grammatte national piano competition.

Trinity Tower notes By Peggy Bolton Trinity Tower Correspondent Stormy weather, icy streets and highways have had us reluctant to venture out. Complaining about the heat in the summer is starting to look really good. However, with all the activities here, we can thumb our nose at winter. On March 15, a couple of leprechauns made us a stew and biscuit supper. It was so good! Many thanks to our manager Dianne and hubby Luverne. We nominate you for honourary wannabe Irishmen. From all of us, happy birthday to Linda Jameson. We have been enjoying watching the curling and hope Canada does well at the Worlds. Charles Goddard from Winnipeg visited with his sisters, Violet Brown at Trinity Tower and Olive Aspinall, who lives at Creighton Lodge. Dianne and Luverne

Bod recently enjoyed a relaxing weekend at Bismarck, N.D. We bid goodbye to Nora Ross who is moving to Regina. A farewell coffee party was held in her honour on March 12. Noraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter from Regina and son from Calgary were also in attendance. We will miss you, Nora. Good luck and happiness to you in your new home. Come back to visit soon. This week, I would like to introduce you to James and Jean Johnston. This couple, who were married 60 years in January, moved to Trinity Tower in November 2010. Jim was in the Army and fought in the Korean War. Jean is an ardent reader and takes mounds of books home from the visiting library. Jean wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see how much I can remember. My journey began when we left Nova Scotia for Toronto in October of 1942. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After school, work and marriages, plus five lovely children later, we moved

to Moose Jaw in the early 1970s. Next we moved to Alberta with its beautiful mountains. From there we lived in Cranbrook, B.C. for a few years ... what a beautiful part of the country! However, we felt we needed to go back to Ontario to help out our parents. Our mothers passed on the same year and Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father the following year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By then, our five children had spread their wings. Our oldest moved to B.C., our second son to Saskatchewan, and two of the girls went to Alberta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had one son in our area and then his job folded. Next thing we found ourselves on our way back to Saskatchewan. One son and grandson, plus our daughter and two granddaughters are here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are really blessed with everything we have been able to do and we have met some wonderful people on this journey. May the Lord bless you each day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you, Jean and James Johnston.

16 at the Cody and Tracy Martin farm. They had a very successful season this year ... way to go Mini Mustangs! Report cards went home on Thursday, March 14 and the three way conferences were held after school and into the evening. It is that time of year again! Registration for kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year will run until April25. If you have a child who will be five-years-old on or before Dec. 31, 2013, he/she will be eligible to begin kindergarten in September 2013. Twelve MCS students recently travelled to Saskatoon to participate in We Day along with 15,000 other students from across the province. We Day promotes getting involved with social issues involving children around the world. As a commitment to the philosophy of We Day, each school was asked to start to raise funds for an overseas project. MCS has chosen to get involved with safe drinking water. They will be collecting pennies here at the school, and for every 2,500 pennies they collect, they can provide clean drinking water for life for one family. They will also be donating the staff casual day money and hat money from the students to this project. Students who would like to wear a hat to school from March 18 to 28 can do so by donating $2 to the cause. Please check around your homes for any pennies you could donate to this project and send them to the school by March 28. Elementary badminton practices take place on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:15 - 4:00 p.m. They will have their windup on March 28 with the parents playing the students. Athletes must wear goggles, which the school can supply, but you may choose to purchase some for $10. Please bring your own racquet if you have one. There are some at the school that can be used if needed. Junior badminton practices are Tuesdays from 3:15 - 5:15 p.m and on Thursdays from 4 - 6 p.m. Senior badminton practices are held on Mondays from 4:15 - 6:15 p.m. and Wednesdays from 3:15 - 5:15 p.m. All junior and senior athletes must supply their own racquet and goggles. Again, goggles can be purchased from the school for $10. Goggles are mandatory for this sport. Have a great week Midale and area!

Children ... you spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk, then the next 16 years telling them to sit down and shut up! There was another great turnout for the jam session held on Sunday, March 17 with more than 50 people in attendance. Many thanks to all who come out and support the club. The next session will be on Sunday, April 14 see you there. Bridge was played on Wednesday, March 13 with first place going to Lorna Stubel, placing second was Al Fellner, and fi nishing third was Frieda Hirsch.

Thursday, March 14 saw cribbage in play with Eric Parker taking first place, Shirley Graham placing second, and Gordon Loustel coming in third. Who Am I? A very dirty little boy came in from playing and said to his mother, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who am I?â&#x20AC;? Ready to play the game, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Who are you?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153; Wo w ! â&#x20AC;? c r i e d t h e little boy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mrs. Johnson was right; she said I was so dirty my own mother wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know me.â&#x20AC;? Is winter ever going away?

In Loving Memory of Mr. Morris Masao Naka August 14, 1922 March 17, 2007 God took him home, it was His will, But in our hearts we love him still; His memory is as dear today As in the hour he passed away. We often sit and think of him When we are all alone, For memory is the only friend That grief can call its own. - Always remembered by wife Florence and all the family. In loving memory of Rita Jardine Time speeds on, two years are gone, Since death its gloomy shadows cast Upon our home, where all was bright And took from us a shining light. We miss that light, and ever will; Her vacant place none can fill, Here we mourn, but not in vain, For in Heaven we will meet again. - Lovingly remembered by Danny.

In Loving Memory of Rod Einar Fagerheim March 24, 1953 March 22, 2012 I think of Rod in silence His name I oft recall. What I would give to clasp his hand His happy face to see, To hear his voice and see his smile That would mean so much to me.... Fond memories linger every day, Remembrance keeps him near. His weary hours and days of pain, his troubled nights are past; And in our aching hearts we know He has found sweet rest at last. We who loved him sadly miss him But trust in God to meet again. Happy 60th Birthday Honey - Love always, Amron and daughter Giona, daughter Julie, granddaughter Bentlee and Hirsch/McKersie Family.

The beginning of March teased me into thinking that nice weather was here at last. The birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; singing reiterated my belief, but alas, I was mistaken as the snow fell, the wind howled and the penetrating cold returned. Now we can barely see outside because of the enormous snowdrifts in front of the windows. I can only hope that â&#x20AC;&#x153;this too shall pass.â&#x20AC;? I did happen to notice the tip of a tiny green hat sticking out of one of the snowbanks! March has already been very busy with such things as bingo, bridge, Quiddler, pub day, whist tournaments and singsongs. We had a coin hunt on March 15, and whoever found the most coins that were hidden all over the building would win a prize. Congratulations to Hilda Boire who won this year. She found many handfuls of the green Saint Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day coins. Good for you Hilda! Thank you again to all the volunteers who donate time and talent to entertain with music and lift the spirits of of our residents. Despite the weather they dedicate their talents. I would also like to thank the many families that encourage and support us. Ours is a job of challenge, and it helps so much to know that the families in the community trust us to love and care for their loved ones. We hope we fulfil your expectations. This week Audrey Sovdi had a bit of excitement as some of her family stopped in for a visit and took some fivegeneration pictures. Audreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Arlice Adderley from Smoothstone Lake, her son Blake Dreher, his daughter Alana and her seven-month-old son Carson made five generations. How blessed Audrey must feel as she sees her lineage. She is an amazing lady and I know that she has been an excellent and Godly example to her family. We would now like to remember one of our most precious residents who had lived at Hill View Manor since August of 2002. Yvette Carrier was among one of the first to move in after HVM opened its doors. Yvette was such a special little lady as she was always happy, smiling and ever ready with a hug for family and staff. We smile when we remember that after every meal, Yvette would take the broom and sweep not only every inch of the floor in House 2 were she ate, but would go to the other three houses as well and sweep. Yvette loved doing this and it took her such a long time because Hill View is such a large place, but she did this faithfully three times a day, every week, every month and every year that she was here up until the last while when her health did not allow her to continue. One would think she would get tired of it, but she was determined and felt a great sense of accomplishment when her task was done. Yvette also loved all entertainment and exercises. She was the first to dance whenever there was music and she would be smiling from ear to ear the whole time. She was an excellent dancer and we loved to watch her and share her excitement. Yvette spoke French. One of our staff was fluent as well and they spent much time reading together or just visiting in their own little â&#x20AC;&#x153;spaceâ&#x20AC;? while the rest of us had no idea what they were saying. I know she got a kick out of that. One of our precious memories of Yvette is that she loved Red Skelton and Mr. Bean. She would sit for hours watching them on video (the same ones over and over) and would be laughing and enjoying herself immensely. She was special ... we loved her very much. As time passed and her health failed, we knew that soon it would be time for Yvette to leave us and go to her heavenly home. That last while I do not think that any of us missed an opportunity to give and receive a hug. We could not get enough of them. Yvette had such a loving personality that it overflowed to all of us, and just by being around her made our days better. On May 28, 2012, our precious Yvette relinquished her spirit to Father and was quietly and reverently ushered on angels wings into His embrace. Though we miss her, we are confident that Yvette is dancing once again, not in Hill Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family room, but on streets of gold!

Estevan Mercury

Focus on the faith By Tim Pippus Estevan Church of Christ INSPIRATION In my mind, I can still smell the mixture of grease and used motor oil that permeated my dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shop. He was a mechanic and he and a bunch of his buddies used to spend most of the winter rebuilding old cars in our backyard garage. It was always sort of a strange and mysterious place to me. I had no idea what the various tools did and I did not know what all the parts were for, but I wanted to learn. In fact, it never even occurred to me that there

were people in the world who wanted nothing to do with repairing old cars. I saw it being done and so I wanted to know how to do it too. Another place of mystery was my uncle Grantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workroom. He had a basement full of electronic stuff including diodes, capacitors and electronic test equipment. I had no idea how to use any of these things, and I did not know how electricity worked, but I decided that, someday, I would learn. Maybe you have been inspired to learn or do something because you saw someone else doing it. Some of you knew that you wanted to be farmers long before you ever learned how to run the combine because you grew up on the farm and love the lifestyle. Others were determined to learn to play the piano because they saw their older sister playing one. Having a parent who enjoys reading is one of the biggest factors in whether a child will like reading or not.

Models are important. We gain motivation, interest and desire for new things by seeing others do those things. That is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Olympic effectâ&#x20AC;?, right? Gyms and health clubs always fill up after the Olympics are on TV because people see others running and competing and it inspires them to do the same. This is no less true spiritually. We need examples. We need those who are being â&#x20AC;&#x153;saltâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;lightâ&#x20AC;? in the world (Matthew 5:13-16). When the Christian life is being lived, when others can see a real example of real faith being lived in real time in real life, it makes them curious. It causes them to want to know more. It inspires interest. In 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.â&#x20AC;? Faith often begins with an example. Never underestimate your ability to inspire something good in others. Your example is more powerful than you know.
