The efforts of Pleasantdale School students to help spare children from the ravages of malaria have drawn the attention of Rick Mercer. The popular host of the equally popular TV show The Mercer Report was in Estevan Monday to spend the day with Pleasantdale students and teachers. The visit was a result of Pleasantdale winning the elementary school division of the Spread the Net Student Challenge. Launched in September by The Mercer Report, the challenge asked schools throughout Canada to raise money to purchase mosquito nets to fight malaria in Africa. Pleasantdale was one of 45 schools to take part in the contest and the school’s Grade 8 social justice program spearheaded the effort with an impressive $5,439 for the nets. As one of three winners, Pleasantdale earned a visit from Mercer and the satirist was at the school for much of Monday filming material for an upcoming show.

At a morning assembly, Mercer explained to the students how he became interested in the fight against Malaria. “About two years ago I went to Africa with my friend Belinda Stronach,� he said. “We visited five or six different countries and in some of the countries they were very poor. We would visit some towns, the size of your town and everything was very similar to a town in Canada. There were kids like yourselves that were going to school and there was corn growing in the fields and people were running around and having a good time. “But then we would go 100 miles down the road and there would be another village and there weren’t really any kids out playing and it wasn’t a very active place.� Mercer said he became intrigued to learn why one community was so active compared to the others and discovered that some villages and towns were able to afford mosquito nets to protect their children from malaria while other, poorer

areas, could not. “My friend Belinda said ‘when we go back to Canada we are going to have to tell all the people about this and we are going to have to figure out a way to get bed nets,’� Mercer said. “So we came up with the idea of Spread The Net. Ten dollars buys a net and saves a life.� Mercer said he was impressed by the efforts of Pleasantdale, noting that for its size they raised an incredible amount of money. “Every now and then a school comes along and they punch way above their weight. They raise more money than anyone could ever imagine and Pleasantdale is one of those schools. You guys are amazing, you raised over $5,000 and that is over 500 bed nets. That is saving 500 lives, that is twice as many people that are in this school and you guys did that for children on the other side of the world.� Along with making a rock video with the students, Mercer also went tobogganing with students during his day at the school.

The City of Estevan is joining other communities throughout the province in giving the 2013 budget a passing grade. Delivered last Wednesday by Finance Minister Ken Krawetz, the budget contained a revenue sharing increase for communities along with other assorted goodies. Mayor Roy Ludwig said the City was pleased to see the operating grant increase, which provided an additional $250,000 for

City operations. “We were very happy with that and we are getting extra revenues on that side,� said Ludwig. In an interview last week, Ludwig said he was somewhat disappointed the province did not go with a formula that would have provided a larger increase for Saskatchewan cities since they are the areas of growth. Since that interview, Ludwig has learned that the province went halfway on the request from

cities as half of the increase was allocated on a per capita basis, which did give the City a slight increase. “We are happy that we are starting to go down that per capita route,� he said. “That was good news.� Prior to the budget Ludwig had said one of the items on his wish list was a long-term sustainable infrastructure program to address the long list of needs in communities throughout the province. Although the govern-

ment is continuing to spend heavily on highways, there was little mention of direct infrastructure spending for cities, towns and RMs. Ludwig said he was not disappointed by the news as they are hopeful the province will announce a program that ties in with the massive infrastructure announcement made Thursday by the federal government. That program has allocated $53 billion over 10 years. “We were hoping for something like a 10-year

plan, so when we get into something like a water reservoir we can look at longterm, committed funding to help us through. We understand and we’ll see what happens, that the province is looking at some type of a matching program to tie onto that. “We understand that they will be looking at and will consider some type of matching (money). How they are going to match, I am not sure at this point. Truck ⇢A2

Ideas and information flow at housing symposium By Norm Park of The Mercury The need for affordable housing programs in Estevan is obvious, but a public symposium geared to address the issue attracted only a handful people to the small Legion Hall last Saturday afternoon. Those who did attend received a lot of information that included a few suggestions from Saskatoon MLA David Forbes, who is the NDP’s housing critic in the legislative assembly. “In the legislature my job is to criticize, to be negative if you will, but here today, we can discuss housing issues in a positive way,” he told about 15 people who had gathered to hear him along with Lieut. Brian Bobolo of the Salvation Army and Rev. Brenna Nickel of St. Paul’s United Church ,who are key members of the local Warm Welcome program that provides overnight shelter for Estevan’s homeless population. “There is a need for about 400 housing units, apartment type housing,” said Blair Shoenfeld, who served as emcee for the afternoon’s program. Nickel, who was introduced by Evelyn Johnson, pointed out that “people with houses means less strain on society. Estevan is growing and changing rapidly and we know this from our roads and other signs. Our church is right next to the bus depot and we have people stopping in once or twice a month asking if we know where they can stay because inexpensive hotel or motel rooms are not there. That’s why the Salvation Army and we started a shelter program to provide them with an overnight sleep with security. It’s not a live-in shelter,” Nickel said. The project that got underway this winter has now housed over 90 people (some repeat guests) but it will wind down after Easter. Because of the high rental rates, it’s a challenge for people newly arrived in Estevan to come up with a first and last month’s rental fee up front. They need to get some traction in the community, she said. A recent arrival from New Jersey, Nickel said “Estevan now competes with downtown Manhattan as far as rental rates go and there is no Metropolitan Opera House down the street here, so the needs are obvious and that’s why I’m proud of our Warm Welcome endeavour, but it needs improvement. Estevan is difficult to come to if you are an outsider. Housing is an issue here for a broad range of people and I’m referring to employed people. Awareness needs to be raised,” Nickel added. Bobolo said the Salvation Army and the shelter staff and volunteers deal with the “flip side of the boom.” The Army’s representative in Estevan said, “homelessness here is diverse, it’s different. Families are arriving

simply looking for work and housing. Many have already landed jobs, but they need help in bridging the gap.” Because most of the jobs in Estevan pay low to average wages, with rents constantly creeping up, it becomes a growing challenge for many and that means they could end up requiring counselling as well as housing as they strive to make ends meet, he said. “There is more to it than just providing a building. We also need a mechanism to reduce anxiety and depression that comes with the problem. You can’t last long as a couch surfer, especially if you’re not family.” Bobolo said the local food bank, Warm Welcome shelter and the opportunity for the homeless to get some fresh clothing and/or laundry facilities and a shower, along with a hot meal on occasion, means a lot. “These people end up becoming desperate for social contact, avoiding the homeless stigmas. They don’t need to go through life untouched, they need grounding, a foundation and acceptance,” Bobolo said. “They don’t feel equal, especially in a wealthy small city like Estevan. They’re not part of the landscape and Estevan can’t seem to wrap their minds around the fact that homelessness is here.” Bobolo said outdated food or stained old clothing that people sometimes try to donate to the food bank and shelter programs are immediately chucked. “We have to, for legal reasons and for dignity. We fight this public relations nightmare all the time and we’ll continue to fight that fight because these are people who are looking for an opportunity to contribute to the community and they know their chances are diminished when they’re dirty, smelly, unkempt. So they retreat, they hide and start to wear that label that others give them. They become experts in reading body language. Some can get creative and move forward. Others crash and burn.” Bobolo said the Salvation Army would support transitional housing programs and he provided some statistical evidence of how assistance programs have worked so far, including the 69 nights in the shelter, 200 overnight stays by about 90 people. They have also provided up to $14,000 worth of temporary hotel accommodations and $7,200 in food. On some evenings, those who required help were sent to Weyburn where accommodations were made available. Since Christmas the Salvation Army has had 945 people drop in for a daytime lunch, including 40 children and have been given over $1,000 in clothing and blankets and $700 for transportation and $1,000 for medications. Food bank use is up 10 per cent, he said, and will top $50,000 in value this year. “We need to be the eyes and ears for possible partnerships with these people,” said Bobolo. Forbes said he agreed that Estevan was unique and it, along with other communities, are just coming off a long,

tough winter of disconnections. “With a vacancy rate of .6 per cent, it’s the lowest in the province and we have a government whose multi-family housing policy consists of giving a stern lecture to those who raise the rent too high, too fast,” he said. Forbes said with current policy ruling out rent controls, it was time to reach for other tools. “The rest of the province is watching Estevan, to see what you do. The Warm Welcome program was watched. People all over were asking what was going on. This is supposed to be a wealthy little city, what could go wrong here? It’s time we found out.” Forbes said the federal government had a housing program, but it’s now reduced, and he expected that a planned April 8 meeting in Estevan will help illuminate some proposals to address the local housing issues. “We need a wide range of opinions here. It can mean home ownership, young people having problems getting started, needing a stable start. After all, shelter is a basic right understood around the world. Churches are on the front line on this, but governments can’t be stepping back on this file, they need to step up.” Forbes said he agreed with Nickel regarding Saskatchewan’s cost of housing, citing recent migrations of PotashCorp executives from Chicago to Saskatoon where they were shocked at the cost and then rental rate increases in Saskatoon. “One executive told me, ‘at least in Chicago we had rent control.’” Forbes went on to say one piece of advice he could offer was that “when you build your housing plan, you make it for 30 years or more. Don’t let Estevan become another Uranium City. Don’t let the developers construct buildings that won’t last 10 years. You have two elected officials in your city who should be able to pull something into Estevan. It’s time to make them accountable. And remember when you tear down old buildings, you might be tearing down a low income person’s home. You have a responsibility here. Make sure your labour force is healthy, question the condominium versus apartment policies of the city, make a pitch for co-operative housing, don’t let developers have the out to switch apartments to condos by a simple phrase in a contract. Don’t fall into the condo trap. Ask if you need more incentives for developers to build apartments. Maybe a government needs to step up and build one.” Later, during an interview, Forbes suggested that in some communities, a corporation has stepped in and built a legacy apartment unit for its own employees. They would build and operate it for four or five years, providing housing for their people until stability was gained and then they would turn it over to the city or province to continue to operate within the social housing framework. “There are solutions. The current provincial government has a housing policy that has some merit, and can be a part of a growth pattern, but they fall down on the rental file and I know this drives the premier crazy because he knows that there are a lot of great landlords in Saskatchewan and then there are the outliers, so it’s not easy to fix, but somebody has to stand up and get moving.”

housing, which is also a major area of concern in Estevan. Ludwig said it was too early to tell how the funding might be able to help the local situation but added they are continuing to meet with the province to improve the situation. “We are still hoping and working with a developer to get something in the ground,” he said. “We will continue to work on affordable housing and move that forward because that is one of the biggest issues we have in our city.” The Estevan truck bypass was also mentioned in the budget and Ludwig said the City and RM of Estevan are continuing to meet monthly with the province to speed along the start of construction. Ludwig said he was happy to see the bypass is still a priority project for the province and is hopeful that construction will begin in 2013. However, he added the project is still bogged down in the land acquisition stage as only 50 per cent of landowners along the route have agreed on a sale with the province. “We will see where the rest of that goes,” he said. “I guess one option that would be available to the province would be expropriation. I’m not saying that to scare people, it’s just a natural progression if you can’t work out an agreement.”

Province delivers balanced budget It’s been described as everything from a status quo budget, to a credit card budget to a budget with a heart but in the eyes of the provincial government, the important aspect of last Wednesday’s budget is that in a time when deficits are running wild in Canada, Saskatchewan again has a balanced budget. The anticipated document was delivered last Wednesday by Finance Minister Ken Krawetz who said the government was able to hold the line on spending while making key investments aimed at ensuring a better quality of life for all Saskatchewan people. “Saskatchewan’s economy is strong and our budget is balanced,� Krawetz said in a government press release. “This budget also balances continued growth with meeting the challenges of that growth. It balances economic progress with social progress. And it balances the need to control spending with the need to make important investments in key areas.� The release noted that one of those key areas is helping some of the most vulnerable people in our province. “We are increasing support benefits for low income seniors under the Seniors Income Plan and for persons with disabilities under the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability program,� Krawetz said. “We are doubling capital funding for para-transit buses and increasing transit assistance for persons with disabilities. “And we are doing more to fight the scourge of domestic violence by increasing funding for women’s shelters, to facilities in Regina and Prince Albert that have been expanded, and by opening a new transition house in Melfort - the first new transition house in Saskatchewan since 1989.� According to the government press release, revenue is projected at $11.61 billion while expenses are estimated to be $11.54 billion. The General Revenue Fund is projected to post a $64.8 million pre-transfer surplus and a surplus of $149.8 million is forecast in the Summary Financial Statements, taking into account all government operations, including the Crown corporations. “One of the biggest challenges of growth is making sure we have the infrastructure we need for a growing economy,� Krawetz said. “Today’s budget meets that challenge.� Overall, the government says it will invest $847.5 million in infrastructure projects this year, an increase of $59.8 million or 7.6 per cent increase from the previous year, and the highest amount budgeted for capital since 2009-10. The capital budget includes key investments in schools, health-care facilities including hospitals and long-term care facilities, post secondary institutions, roads, highways and municipal infrastructure. Since 2008, nearly $5.8 billion has been invested in Saskatchewan’s infrastructure. Krawetz said another challenge identified in the government’s Growth Plan is labour force development- ensuring Saskatchewan has a highly-skilled, well-trained workforce to meet the needs of a growing economy. “We know affordability of post-secondary education is an issue for students,� Krawetz said. “That’s why this budget increases direct student support funding by nearly $20 million or 20 per cent, to $117.4 million.� This includes: * $63.9 million for the Graduate Retention Program,

an increase of $12.2 million; * $34.5 million for the Student Aid Fund; * $7.5 million for the Saskatchewan Advantage Scholar-

Ken Krawetz ship, an increase of $2.9 million; * $6.5 million in new investment for the Saskatchewan Advantage Grant for Education; * $5 million for other scholarships. The 2013-14 Budget also includes increases to a number of important training initiatives including increases for 300 additional apprenticeship training seats, industry-driven skills training and adult basic education. The budget also has increased funding for the provincial training allowance, First Nations and MĂŠtis skills training programs like northern career quest and the aircraft maintenance engineer training program at the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies. Other budget highlights include: * $131.8 million increase, or 4.5 per cent for regional health authorities base operating funding for health care, staff, drugs, medical supplies and other operating costs; * $70.5 million for the Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative to reduce surgical wait times, an increase of $10 million; * $29 million to address health care demographic volume pressures from population growth; * $4.3 million to establish collaborative emergency centres and improvements to primary health care; * $9.2 million for the third year of the federal/provincial Affordable Housing Agreement, to be used for new affordable housing, home renovations, home adaptations, and rental and housing supplements; * $14.3 million (2.3 per cent) increase in post-secondary base operating grants; * $17 million increase to support forecast school enrolment increases; * $20.2 million supporting 15 new Pre-K programs, for a total of 301 programs;

* $119.6 million, an increase of $7.2 million (6.4 per cent) for school capital projects; * $1.5 million within Work Readiness to accelerate essential skills training and increase employment opportunities for First Nations and MĂŠtis people; * Overall, $184.8 million, or $10.8 million more in targeted funding from government ministries for initiatives that will benefit First Nations and MĂŠtis people, including $3 million directed specifically to address future recommendations of the Joint Task Force on Improving Education and Employment outcomes; * $5 million is provided to the new Creative Saskatchewan Product Development Investment Program to support growth and development in the creative industries sector; * $576 million in highways and transportation funding as part of the government’s four-year, $2.2 billion commitment. This year $63.6 million is targeted to Economic Corridor projects such as the Regina West Bypass, the Estevan Bypass, passing lanes on Highway 10 and completion of the Highway 11 twinning initiative; * $264.4 million, a $27.0 million (11.4 per cent) increase for municipal revenue sharing, part of $362 million in overall direct provincial support to municipalities, an increase of $19.6 million (5.7 per cent) from last year; * A $2 million (8.5 per cent) increase to the municipal roads to the Economy program, bringing the total funding to $25.5 million; and * $198.3 million for crop insurance, a record budget. In order to offset an average 67 per cent increase in property values over the past four years, the government is lowering education property tax rates on all classes of property to keep the impact of re-assessment revenue neutral overall. The new education mill rates will be 2.67 mills for agricultural land (reduced from 3.91 mills), 5.03 mills for residential property (down from 9.51 mills), 8.28 mills for commercial property (there were previously three higher rates), and 11.04 mills for the new resource property category. The tobacco tax rate will increase by four cents per cigarette, effective midnight budget night, with a comparable increase on cut/loose tobacco. Liquor mark-ups will increase by approximately three per cent for all beverage categories, effective April 1. The Growth and Financial Security Fund is forecast to end the year with a balance of $695.1 million. The fund will allocate $512.7 million to address unforeseen events outside of the government’s control and will allocate funds of $182.4 million for growth, for future infrastructure projects and debt reduction. Krawetz said that Premier Wall has directed that for now, the money in the fund will not be allocated to any specific projects until the impact of the potential floods this spring is known, so that this money will be available to cover flooding costs, if necessary. “This budget not only balances the books, it balances the priorities of Saskatchewan people,â€? Krawetz said. “It controls spending while making key investments. It promotes opportunity while ensuring we protect those in our province who need help. It ensures Saskatchewan will continue to grow while meeting the challenges of that growth. And it keeps Saskatchewan moving forward.â€?

Cornerstone reacts to budget numbers By Norm Park of The Mercury They are ready to move forward with the cards that have been dealt to them. That appeared to be the prevailing attitude among the trustees sitting around the table last Thursday afternoon during the South East Cornerstone Public School Division’s monthly business session. One spot was vacant however, that chair belonging to Estevan trustee Janet Foord who also happens to be president of the Saskatchewan School Boards Association (SSBA). They were busy in Regina two days after the delivery of the provincial budget, composing a press release that indicated the budget was not recognizing the needs of the kindergarten to Grade 12 educational system. A status quo budget, the SSBA said, meant school boards throughout the province had no real flexibility to fill local needs since the provincial government now controls almost every aspect of generating revenue for education. “What this means, is that government at best is maintaining funding, not adding more resources to meet all students’ achievement needs,� said Foord. “The targets for which boards are accountable have been mandated by the government. This budget does not provide the resources required to achieve those targets.� Marc Casavant, director of education for Cornerstone, told The Mercury, “we want to have the ability to meet the ministry’s expectations regarding their growth plan and we will continue to align ourselves with them. But we have to ask the question ... when does the funding we need to meet these priorities start to flow?�

Casavant said providing just $3 million to meet higher expectations for First Nations educational programs might be shortchanging the process. Cornerstone works with three First Nations bands to enhance their educational programming ... items that aren’t covered through federal funds. “We try to enhance delivery of support in the public school realm because we focus on all our students in the division,� he said. A 2.5 per cent increase in overall funding for education is expected to cover wages, an enrolment increase and general inflation and that will be difficult, Casavant said. Shelley Toth, the division’s chief financial officer, told the board that throughout the budget, non-teaching positions were referenced at about 1.5 per cent for salary increases and if enrolments increased substantially, there could be an upward adjustment in funding in the fall to recognize that. But when it comes to funding for capital projects, “we’re continually not knowing how the model will work. It’s still not defi ned,� said Casavant. “Transportation is not defined either and we get that because we understand that all revenue can’t be defined either. Resource revenues are not always visible or consistent, not immediately anyway, so we can only try to get more predictability from government. It’s very difficult to plan long term though.� Casavant said Cornerstone now has their provincial numbers, “but until we crunch them, we won’t know if there is enough coming in to meet their expectations. We’ll start the next budget process in April and review in May and submit it in June for approval and we’re not

allowed to submit a deficit budget, so it’s still a guessing game and we’ll start making choices. We know some things are non-negotiable due to government policies, so what their expectations are ... we’ll have to see.� The director said the government’s policies regarding the borrowing structure for capital projects is still not firm yet either. The division is in the midst of its annual hiring season now and Casavant said that some unfilled positions at various levels may have to be managed as vacancies to accommodate the budget restraints, but again, that was not known yet since the process had only just begun. Toth said Cornerstone receives slightly more than $53 million from the provincial assessments on property taxes in southeast Saskatchewan which serves 38 schools with more than 8,100 students in K to 12 schools. The division also receives about $38 million in Education Ministry grants. The division is able to add a bit more revenue through tuition fees paid by other jurisdictions for students from outside the southeast sector who are attending school in the local division. Toth also noted that non-school buildings such as bus maintenance garages and the division’s central office in Weyburn are not generally addressed in general provincial budget terms. Later in the meeting the board voted 6-2 in favour of tabling a motion to provide up to $60,000 for a new software package that would help senior administration and board members track all facility frameworks. It was agreed that without knowing what the ongoing operational costs would be, and with the current state of finances being in flux, it would be best to take a pass on this specific project.

Provincial budget impacts local hospital Funding health care in Saskatchewan now absorbs 42 per cent of the total budget or $4.84 billion, according to information released in this year��€™s provincial budget that came down last Wednesday. Last year spending on health care through the provincial coffers was increased by 3.5 per cent and another 4.5 per cent is earmarked for this year, or an increase of $132 million. But in most health regions, that represents a cut, meaning that efficiencies will have to be found ... about $54 million worth. What is happening this year is an edict that states regional health authorities must find 1.5 per cent in efficiencies within the funding formula. Knocked down to the very local level, the mandate is one that will create several challenges at St. Joseph’s Hospital where Greg Hoffort, the hospital’s executive director, is expected to lead the charge to find areas where new efficiencies can lead to cuts in spending. While an announcement of a CT scanner for St. Joe’s was not included in last week’s budget, Hoffort said he and the hospital board are expecting to hear something from the Ministry of Health sometime this week. “We didn’t expect an announcement on the CT scanner last week,â€? he said. Nor did the mandated cuts come unexpected either. “We’re now reviewing with a fine tooth comb. I don’t expect many new dollars for St. Joseph’s so we’ll have to find some savings or increase revenue and that’s hard to do. There are some extra dollars coming in thanks to some out-of-province patients we get who use our services and then we get paid by their health care plans or their home provinces, but we still have to do a lot of work,â€? Hoffort added.

nursing home in Estevan sometime in the near future. “I expect they’ll want to get into the provincial queue, the provincial lineup for health facilities pretty soon,� Hoffort said. Inflation and salary hikes that have already been negotiated will be covered, said Hoffort, so that strain can be avoided by the local health region. “I can’t say what the impact will be on the entire region, but I expect they’ll be asked to take out any excess numbers they can locate too. I don’t know what their numbers will be, but when they do get their answer, then we (St. Joseph’s) will get our numbers from them and work from there.� As of Monday afternoon, Sun Country Health Region’s chief executive officer Marga Cugnet and the vice-president of finance John Knoch were travelling in the region and unable to respond to an interview request.

One area that will be studied is job vacancy management. When and if some vacant positions are filled, they could become part of the cutback game this year. There isn’t a lot of room there, but it will have to be looked at. “This will not affect any front line personnel, so there aren’t too many positions that can go unfilled for long. In fact we could use more relief staff for instance. We’ve been fortunate lately in filling laboratory and X-ray technician positions, so no big vacancy spots to work with, but we’ll have to look.� St. Joseph’s employs about 300 people with approximately 200 of them filling full-time positions and the other 100 in part-time or casual employment. “We might get some capital funds for some odd bits of surgical capital needs, but we can’t expect much on that file either,� Hoffort said. “We’re wanting to finish the helipad this year. It will be finished this spring. It was $500,000 in the budget that is being trimmed, but it will be completed once the weather allows,� he said, referring to the landing pad for the STARS helicopter that provides medical evacuation services in the province. Hoffort said the local committee is also “getting awfully close� to completing the fundraising drive that is going to collect $8 million of the expected $32 million that it will take to build a desperately needed new

“We’re wanting to finish the helipad this year. It will be finished this spring. It was $500,000 in the budget that is being trimmed, but it will be completed once the weather allows.� — Greg Hoffort

Komarnicki touts federal budget Given the here and now nature of the document, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not often that a budget has people looking towards the future. But that is precisely what has happened after the delivery of the federal budget Thursday by the Conservative government. Finance Minister Jim Flahertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget contained little in the way of spending increases or cuts for 2013 but did offer a lot of hope for the future as they apparently remain on track for a balanced budget in 2015. The government also announced it will begin another massive infrastructure program in 2014. In a press release on the budget, Souris-Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki praised the budget and noted that balancing the budget remains a huge target for the government. Komarnicki noted that in order for there to be long term prosperity, the government must balance its budget as they said they would by 2015, while keeping taxes low and controlling spending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are conditions for success and in addition to getting this right, we need to make sure that business continues to grow by providing the human resources they need and the infrastructure they rely on,â&#x20AC;? Komarnicki said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Continued cuts in departmental spending, reducing travel costs, closing tax loopholes, improving CRA compliance programs, and providing for a better and more efficient administration are positive steps to ensure our budget is balanced by 2015.â&#x20AC;? Komarnicki said the budget does not reduce health care, education, or social service transfer payments to provinces in order to balance the budget, and in some cases it increases them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does not impose any tax increases like the NDP would surely introduce if they were to gain power,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The NDP proposes to raise $21 billion on what can only be seen as a tax on carbon. This would certainly kill our job creation efforts, stifle growth, and increase the price of everyday essentials that families need. Their position opposing the Keystone XL pipeline and

WEDNESDAY

A6 A 6 EDITORIAL

Lacking support for cities In the world of politics, there is nothing that receives more scrutiny than a budget. As the document that sets the province’s direction for the next year, the budget is something that affects everyone in the entire province so it’s only natural that everyone has their say. The budget delivered last Wednesday by the Sask. Party government has elicited a fairly wide range of opinions. Civic and municipal leaders as well as the business community seem pleased with it. Unions and educators in the province are less impressed with it. It should come as no surprise that those groups have taken the stance they have since it became obvious a long time ago where their loyalties lie. However it is somewhat perplexing to see the blind support that Saskatchewan’s cities, towns and municipalities have given the budget. There were some items for them to be happy about, in particular the increase in revenue sharing. As the government has proudly proclaimed, the budget doled out a record amount of money through municipal operating grants. That, of course, is great news as a number of communities need the additional funds to deal with the growing pains they are experiencing. Unfortunately for those same communities, the budget came up well short of expectations when it comes to infrastructure. The government is pouring millions into highways and for the umpteenth time included the Estevan truck bypass in the document, but they failed miserably in laying out a plan to help cities deal with the myriad infrastructure issues they face. Some communities had been hoping to see a program that included a long-term plan with sustainable funding for at least a decade. They got nothing of the sort. Although the federal government announced a massive infrastructure program in its budget one day later, the province was alarmingly quiet on the issue. It’s beginning to get a little sickening to hear the province talk of all this prosperity but do nothing to support the communities that are the engines of said prosperity. As has been written in this space previously, the province cannot have it both ways. They cannot thump their chest and shout to the heavens about the Saskatchewan Advantage and then ignore the infrastructure needs of its communities. In Estevan alone we have roads that are getting worse by the hour due in no small part to the increased traffic that comes with these boom times. Yet there was no mention of funding for the urban connector program, which would provide funds to repair Highway 47 through Estevan. And we are hardly the only community in Saskatchewan that has major infrastructure needs. There is talk the province might piggyback on the new federal infrastructure plan, which begins in 2014. Hopefully that is indeed the case. Otherwise civic and municipal governments throughout the province might have to take off the blinders and begin holding the Sask. Party accountable. And the Sask. Party themselves need to stop pointing the finger at the previous NDP government for their lack of support to cities. We all know they dropped the ball on that file, but there is a shelf life on how long you can ride that train. The time for pointing the finger has long since passed. The time for action is now.

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

Budget not the best or worst for rural Sask. Rural Saskatchewan has certainly seen better budgets. But it has also seen worse. Let us examine today how rural Saskatchewan specifically did in the 2013-14 budget, presented last week by Finance Minister Ken Krawetz. Any such examination should still begin with agriculture, where the Saskatchewan Party government is providing a record $198.3 million for crop insurance. That said, a $52.5-million decrease in the commitment to the AgriStability Fund, along with $10.2-million less for AgriInvest, connotes a major shift away from enhanced payouts to deal with disasters in a year when some flooding seems a certainty. In fact, there are no specific dollars aside for flood relief anywhere in the budget - a potential problem, given its razor-thin surplus. The government, in this budget, is also phasing out its SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

Playing the name game What’s in a name? I love the wordy gambols we take in this profession as we plough through some real adventuresome play dates with the alphabet in an attempt to unscramble names of kids we encounter. Some kidlets bear simple, old fashioned monikers while others get these alphabet assemblies that defy description. Sometimes I joke with them about the name they’ll have to spell out to everybody all the time as they sift along through life. They seem to be all right with it. And what the heck, with all the communication tools we have to work with now ... a kid will probably be able to keep his or her name in storage on a phone app or some other easy peasy device that they can just flash in front of the eyes, or a receptor device carried by the reporter that will demystify the name instantly. I expect that fairly soon we won’t have to be asking these youngsters “now do you spell that Duane, Dwaine, Dwain, Duwaine, Quane, Diauane or ...? They’ll just flash the name and we’ll have our answer. During my recent trip to the Middle East, I encountered some new and exciting names. I

Norm Park All Things Considered ran into little girls named Jawa, Dareen, Taiba, Fouziah, Jouri and Basma with Al Hasawi, Al Jeriwi or Boodai on the end as opposed to Smith or Park. It was fun sorting them out too. I learned early on that the name game could be a challenge and to never assume anything when it came to spelling or pronunciation. Having a few tons of Icelanders in my neighbourhood circle, I learned to quickly differentiate the Fionas from the Fijolas. There were women named Suava, Bina, Runa and Sigga and they were great names to have around us along with the guys named Siggy, Derrick, Hjalmer, Valdi and Fitz. Forget the last names ... I don’t have enough space allocated to me to include them. Now the second and third most popular population base in our little town of 1,500 were either Ukrainian or Polish, so we had a few Tatanias and more confusing alphabet configurations on

support for ethanol initiatives. Spending on Saskatchewan highways will be down almost $30 million from last year - never great news for rural Saskatchewan. Nevertheless, there is the good news of a $63.8-million commitment to repave 280 kilometres of highway and another $63.8 million for the Regina West bypass, the Estevan bypass, passing lanes on Highway 10 and completion of Highway 11 twinning. Other highway projects worth noting include: upgrading Hwy. 22 from Southey to Earl Grey; upgrading of Hwy. 42 from Tuxford to Eyebrow; grading and paving of the Dalmeny access road, and continuing work on the St. Louis Bridge. Proceeding with the previously announced new Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford may be the big item in rural health spending. However, rather than capital investments, it may be a further initiative hopefully providing more rural doctors that will emerge as the biggest health positive out of this budget. The Sask. Party government doubled its contribution to the locum pool to $3 million - support that will hopefully add 20 rural physicians. There will also be an additional $250,000 more for the Rural Family Physician Recruitment Incentive Program to encourage graduating doctors to locate to rural Saskatchewan. Further wisely spent health dollars include an additional $350,000 for expansion of the Alzheimer Society’s First Link program to add sites in North Battleford, Swift Current, Estevan and Prince Albert. Also, $70.6 million is being set aside for the government to make good on its commitment to co-owned long-term care

the last names there too. So these people got together on occasion. Many got married and had kids. But darn it ... they named them Linda, Carol, Benjamin and well, I kinda found that rather discouraging. Here were the old world Scandinavians and Europeans wanting to suddenly Canadianize their kids. Did they not realize that their names and the names of their mothers, fathers, grandmothers and granddads were actually quite fabulous and romantic sounding name plates? I know I had grandmothers named Mayme and Phoebe. Not bad, I think. Not too many Phoebes to be found in North America today, even with all our current alphabetical manipulation kids ... no Phoebe. So hey, no real message to be gleaned from all of this. It’s just a casual observation of where we’re going with the naming game. By the way, I believe one of the most popular girl names in Saskatchewan this year was Emily, and rightfully so.

facilities in Biggar, Kelvington, Kerrobert, Kipling, Maple Creek and Prince Albert. Meanwhile, there will be $15.9 million to fulfil commitments to regional health authorities to complete facilities in Radville, Redvers, Rosetown, Shellbrook and Tisdale. Additional spending for school and post-secondary education operating budgets may have been one of the bigger disappointments in a budget that needed to cater to a growing province. Nevertheless, Martensville, Leader and Hudson Bay will see previous commitments translate into $18.7 million in funding, while Langenburg and Gravelbourg will receive $1.9 million to begin planning new projects. There was also an additional $4 million for continued construction of the Southeast Regional College in Weyburn. Urban municipalities will benefit from the pre-budget announcement of 12 per cent more while rural municipalities will get an 8.5-per cent increase, all courtesy of the sharing of a percentage point of an increasingly lucrative provincial sales tax. There will be $6.6-million more for RCMP policing and other municipal policing grants will increase by $600,000. And in recognition that a fast-growing province means an increase in family problems, there will be $800,000 more for women’s shelters, including funding for a new shelter in Melfort - the first such transition house in the province to be added since 1989. Overall, this austerity budget is offering less to rural Saskatchewan than it has grown used to seeing at budget time. But both rural Saskatchewan, and the province as a whole, have seen far worse budgets.

Letters to the Editor Labour law changes a bad move The Editor: Is the proposed new Saskatchewan Employment Act an example of false economy or an attack on the health of nonunion workers across the province? Probably both. If health outcomes are the way we measure the likely impact of work time and scheduling changes then Bill 85 will be an abject failure since it will compromise many peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. If employers think they will save money from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;flexibilityâ&#x20AC;? Bill 85 imposes on non-union workers most will learn that the resulting ill health will cost them far more. Replacing 12 statutes with a single â&#x20AC;&#x153;labour codeâ&#x20AC;?, Bill 85 undermines the eight-hour workday, which was won to end the gruelling schedules many workers faced in the late 19th century. The new Employment Act allows employers to switch to a 10-hour workday without acquiring a permit. If employers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t schedule more than four 10-hour shifts in a week, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay overtime. Expected to be tabled during the current sitting of the legislature, Bill 85 also weakens employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; right to refuse overtime in excess of 44 hours per week. The new employment act also increases employersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to bank overtime, which could undermine current time and a half pay provisions. The result? Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality of life and health will be

harmed if they are forced to work longer. Working long hours is linked with increased depression, heart disease and countless other illnesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Working More Than 8 Hours A Day Can Kill Youâ&#x20AC;? is how a September Forbes magazine headline summarized a growing body of research on the topic. Workplace safety will also be compromised by longer hours and the fatigue that accompanies it. In addition, Bill 85 may contribute to making workplaces unsafe in another way. It further enables employers to eliminate unpaid meal breaks if they allow employees to eat while working. But research suggests that regular breaks reduce workplace injuries, particularly the repetitive strain variety. Workplace injury rates are already higher in Saskatchewan than most of the country and having employers work long uninterrupted periods flies in the face of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stated desire to reduce these injuries. Unless things change, under the new employment act, 14 year-old youths could work 10-hour days without a meal break. As the school year winds down and many students start seeking summer employment, it is worth reflecting on the consequences this might have on their health and development. In their bid to grant employers ever more scheduling flexibility, the Saskatchewan Party is also set to eliminate weekends for many workers. Under the current rules, em-

ployers are supposed to provide two consecutive days off per week, including Sunday wherever possible. Beyond making more people work on weekends, Bill 85 gives employers greater flexibility to schedule work on statutory holidays. While replacing an employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public holiday with another day off may appear reasonable, it actually undermines one important objective of these holidays. Ensuring that as many people as possible have time off at the same time, public holidays give busy people time to strengthen family and friendship bonds. These ties are an important factor in a healthy society. The work time and scheduling changes proposed by the Saskatchewan Party are unnecessary. Current regulations allow some services to operate on holidays and employers can seek permits for various flexible work schedules. In a major step in the wrong direction, these changes will increase the pressure on people to work longer and give them less control over their family and social time. The health of the province will suffer and many people, including employers, will pay the price. Dave Coles President, Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada

Debt remains concern Continual work needed on our city streets

The Editor: The mayor made mention of a City debt of $37 million the other day in the paper. I am sure that it was just a senior moment that made him forget the $10 million bank draft that was taken out the first part of December until July 31 and then increased the next month to $11 million and the next month to $12 million and that is only until March supposedly, making

the debt $49 million when added up. That equates to $4,083 debt for every man woman and child in this city. Not bad if you say it fast. The city seems to be spending a heck of a lot of money on developing lots for resale, why? That is tax dollars that should be put to work on the roads, sidewalks and infrastructure. There are companies that do this for a living, let them do their job. Stay out of this

rat race.

Dale M. Wetsch Estevan

(Editor â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: The Mercury contacted the City of Estevan regarding the assertion that the line of credit is over and above the $37 million mentioned by the mayor. The City informed The Mercury that the line of credit is part of the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall debt of $37 million, not in addition to it.)

The Editor: It would be nice if Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s streets would improve on their own, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be happening. I can see the present city council is doing all they can to clear the snow off the streets. But years of neglect and the effects of nature have taken their toll.

Major proper pothole repairs need to happen real quick, then proper maintenance using good quality materials and grades to allow water to drain off will greatly improve the life of the streets. Long term, we need to view street maintenance as an investment not a makework program. Seal up

cracks, clean off snow in a timely manner, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow water to seep into the subgrade. Maintainance is a lot cheaper than capital expenses. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get our civic pride back and welcome visitors to our city. Sincerely, Calven Johnson

Estevan Mercury

Foundation raises funds for operating room

Roxy Blackmore headed up the St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Radiothon on March 20, as Energy City residents donated a total of $38,622 throughout the day. about everyday? Absolutely not. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to think about it because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a fun place to be, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly a place that is very, very imperative for a community.â&#x20AC;? The group was set up in the main foyer of the Estevan Shoppers Mall from 6

a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 21, accepting donations in person as volunteers manned the phones as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did very well. We have $38,000 that we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have yesterday at 6 a.m.,â&#x20AC;? said Blackmore. The funds raised will go to the operating room,

and while the money wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completely cover the costs, it will help purchase two tables and a sterilizer. Blackmore also noted this was her last fundraiser as she is immediately moving out of the hospital foundation to a new role as the staffing co-ordinator at St.

Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. She said the event may require some fresh eyes and that the community can probably expect something different next year with someone else at the helm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It maybe needs some changes, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see how it goes next year,â&#x20AC;? added Blackmore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The radio sta-

tion did phenomenal work, and my volunteers were excellent. Everybody who took part in it certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint at all.â&#x20AC;? With someone new coming to the hospital foundation, Blackmore hopes they will be able to attract new volunteers for events, while keeping the current volunteer base intact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The foundation has been doing exceptionally well,â&#x20AC;? said Blackmore, who noted five years ago, the organization was in a deficit. When attracting new residents to the city, the state of the hospital is a big selling point for many families. Keeping it up to date and good working in order is one of the keys to a growing city, she pointed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a family to move to, school is very important, recreation is very important, but hospitals, if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m moving to a new community, I want to know what kind of health care Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to get or my childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get if I need it,â&#x20AC;? said Blackmore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important to keep it in the forefront of the community. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cornerstone of any community.â&#x20AC;?

They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break any records this year, but the St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Foundation was keen to accept all donations they received during another successful event. At the annual Radiothon, donations to the hospital foundation topped $38,622, down from previous years. Despite that, Roxy Blackmore, foundation director, was pleased the community came out to support them once again. The Radiothon isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all about raising money either, noted Blackmore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The Radiothon) was great for awareness,â&#x20AC;? Blackmore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our events are for, to raise the awareness of the importance of the hospital, because we all use it.â&#x20AC;? She noted everyone is born in the hospital or has been there for a heart attack or broken arm. Even getting an X-ray or blood work requires the facilities at the hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need it.

Estevan falls in Moneysense rankings Estevan has taken a major tumble in the annual Moneysense Best Places to Live in Canada rankings. Released last Wednesday, the ranking placed the Energy City 140th out of 200 cities. In 2012, Estevan was ranked 43rd in the country, marking a drop of 97 places. In the small cities rankings (population of less than 100,000) Estevan was 85th out of

139 communities. Described as Moneysense’s most comprehensive rankings yet, the report looks at 33 different categories to get a picture of life in a particular community. Among the categories included in 2013 were weather, housing, health care, crime, taxation, wealth and amenities. Although Estevan

scored high in a couple of categories, it would appear the lack of affordable housing and shortage of doctors were major factors in the precipitous drop. Estevan had the fifth lowest unemployment rate among the 200 cities at 2.9 per cent and cracked the top 20 for average household income at $112,188. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Estevan was

among the worst cities for crime with a severity index of 156.73. The city also took a hit with respect to housing as the average price of a house is $343,544, which was among the highest in the small cities category. Health care was also an area of concern as the report said Estevan had just .85 doctors per 1,000 residents, which was the

sixth worst total in the ranking. Curiously, the city also ranked poorly in population growth as the report indicated that Estevan’s population had shrunk by 2.5 per cent in 2011-2012. That figure flies in the face of most data, which has the population on a steady climb. A number of Saskatchewan cities took it on the chin in the rank-

ings. While Regina and Saskatoon cracked the top 20, Prince Albert dropped to 175th place and Yorkton ranked a surprising 165th. North Battleford was ranked 150th overall and Swift Current also placed low, coming in at 147th place. Moose Jaw was the only other Saskatchewan community to make the top 100 with a ranking of 94th.

Bad roads contribute to accidents The Estevan Police Service (EPS) members responded to a traffic accident in the central part of the city on the night of March 19. The investigation revealed that a vehicle proceeding from a parking lot entered the street in front of an approaching vehicle which led to a collision. Damage was reported to have been minimal and no injuries were noted. Road conditions at the time were considered to be a factor in the incident. Another traffic accident was attended to by EPS members that same night. This time the event occurred on the south side of the city where three parked vehicles were struck after the driver of another vehicle lost control in the ice and snow ruts. No injuries were reported. On Friday, March 22, EPS and members of the Estevan

Fire Rescue Service responded to a fire alarm at the Estevan Comprehensive School that had been triggered by a teacher after smoke was detected in the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; washroom. A small fire had been set in the trash container embedded in the wall. The fire was suppressed by the teacher using a bucket of water, but in the meantime classrooms were evacuated and students moved to nearby Spruce Ridge School while firefighting personnel ventilated the area. Classes resumed approximately 20 minutes later and EPS members have established an investigation into this arson incident. EPS members are also investigating a report of threats issued by one young man against another. Statements have been made and recorded. A local grocery store reported a shoplifting incident on

March 22. A 49-year-old man was located and charged with theft of goods valued at under $5,000. He was also charged with being in possession of less than 30 grams of a controlled substance. In the meantime, members of the Estevan detachment of the RCMP report that sometime between the afternoon hours of Friday, March 22 and early morning hours of Saturday, March 23, a yellow truck with a flat tire that was parked on the shoulder of a grid road between Estevan and Bienfait was vandalized. The RCMP are seeking information from anyone who might have information regarding this incident. They may contact the local detachment at 306-637-4400 or report anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Steve McLellan, Saskatchewan Chamber CEO

McLellan speaks at chamber AGM The CEO of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce was the guest speaker for the Estevan Chamber of Commerceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting last week. Steve McLellan spoke on a number of topics including the recently announced provincial budget and the challenges facing businesses in Saskatchewan. Speaking on the budget, McLellan described this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s document as wonderfully boring, adding that it included modest spending increases for a number of critical sectors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through the wise leadership of our provincial government and the good advice by the chamber network to say donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into the red, they have kept their costs as low as possible and they are still able to do some things,â&#x20AC;? McLellan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are able to do things not only for the business community but the broader community as well. (There is) extra spending in areas of health

care, but it is important to note it is not as big an increase as last year,â&#x20AC;? said McLellan, who added the chamber was encouraged to see increased spending for skills training and apprenticeship programs. One area that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t addressed in the budget was a reduction of the corporate income tax rate from 12 per cent to 10 per cent, something the government has promised it would do by 2014. McLellan said although the chamber would obviously have been happy to see a lower income tax rate, they remain confident the province will live up to its promise in next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things the province did was to say in order to stay balanced and put the money into a variety of areas like skills training and apprenticeship, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do the tax cut. We said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not do it this year. Their commitment, and we are going to hold them to it, is by 2014 (the cut) will be in place.â&#x20AC;?

Steve McLellan McLellan also used his speech as an opportunity to talk about important matters facing the provincial business community such as workplace safety. He noted that Saskatchewan is second in Canada

Crop insurance deadline Sunday Saskatchewan producers are reminded the deadline to enrol in crop insurance or make changes to their current contract is March 31. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are providing record funding, record coverage levels and further program improvements to help producers mitigate risk,â&#x20AC;? Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I strongly encourage all producers to consider crop insurance as part of their management plans this year, particularly with the late spring and snowfall levels throughout the province.â&#x20AC;? The 2013 crop insurance program includes record funding of $198 million, up from $177 million in 2012, and an increase in funding of 91 per cent since 2007. Coverage levels are a record $194 per acre on average, up from $174 per acre in 2012 and more than double the coverage offered in 2007. New in 2013, the crop insurance program includes: * increased yields for hard red spring wheat, hard white spring wheat and oats as part of the yield trending formula; * increased establishment benefit values for field peas, canola and identity-preserved canola; and * expansion of the insurable area for soybeans and the corn heat unit program. Producers continue to have the option to supplement the unseeded acreage benefit of $70 per eligible

acre by purchasing either $15 or $30 per acre in additional coverage, for up to $100 per eligible acre. With record coverage and continued crop insurance enhancements, there will be no ad hoc AgriRecovery Program for weather-related disasters in 2013. Producers are encouraged to contact their local crop insurance office about how program features and

options, such as the unseeded acreage buy-up option, can help meet their risk management needs. The deadline for customers to apply for, make changes to or cancel a crop insurance contract is March 31, 2013. Detailed program and contract information is available at any crop insurance office, at www.saskcropinsurance.com or by calling 1-888-935-0000.

to Manitoba for having the most lost-time injuries. McLellan feels Saskatchewan lacks a commitment to workplace safety which is terribly counterproductive as injuries and lost time are a major expense to business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cost is about $100 million a year wasted

in Saskatchewan,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s across the province.â&#x20AC;? Labour remains another significant issue as businesses are continuing to grapple with a lack of qualified employees. To the likely dismay of companies in the province, McLellan said labour challenges are not going away and the business sector must find a way to cope with the situation if they wish to remain productive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reality: we are not going to see busloads of new staff coming. So the challenges we face today, the processes that you are limited by or the expansion that you are not able to make because of staff, you need to find ways around it,â&#x20AC;? McLellan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to find ways around the shortages of staff; for example making sure people stay safe, getting more extensive training, innovation and equipment and productivity systems in your workplace.â&#x20AC;? McLellan said one area the chamber is working on with relation to the labour shortage is Aboriginal engagement. He said the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aboriginal

population is under engaged and that is no longer acceptable if businesses want to remain productive and the chamber is working to develop better training programs and helping aboriginal workers get settled in whatever community they choose to work in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The Aboriginal community) is the biggest single opportunity in many ways for Saskatchewan employers and, of course, for the Aboriginal community itself.â&#x20AC;? McLellan closed by applauding the City and chamber for the creation of an official community plan. He also implored those in attendance to take an active role in the development of the plan and work with their local government to make Estevan a better place to live and do business in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a democracy and that means that you need to provide your opinion so when the consultation process comes out, you have got to get serious. You have to be part of that process and if you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, shame on you. And if you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you are going to live with the results.â&#x20AC;?

Psychological safety too often overlooked The key to a great work environment may be to find â&#x20AC;&#x153;sneakyâ&#x20AC;? ways to not work as hard. The Southeast Enviro and Safety Seminar hosted occupational therapist Sylvia Yaeger, who spoke not only about physical strains of the workplace but also the psychological ones. With about 200 people gathered in the conference room at the Southeast Training Institute March 20, Yaegerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keynote address went over the problems of when work life can impede satisfaction in everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day-to-day lives. Hosted annually by the Southeast Environment and Safety committee, the seminar is meant to provide information about safety issues and industry standards that may affect everyday operations for businesses. Yaeger said there is a mind-body connection that needs to be in good balance if people are going to work their best and smartest. Stress leave is a relatively new phenomenon, she noted, adding that nobody ever heard of it until very recently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you think about what stress in the workplace can do to people, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrible,â&#x20AC;? Yaeger told the attendees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who heard of stress leave even 25 years ago? Now stress leave is costing Canadian businesses over $12 billion a year, and that is exponentially increasing.â&#x20AC;? She said that has never been seen before in the country, and the incidences of depression in Canada are â&#x20AC;&#x153;unparallelâ&#x20AC;? to any other time in history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think about that for a second. Post-war in North America we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the level of depression that we have now,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting post-war levels in Europe werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as high either. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in the land of plenty. We have so much. How can that be? One of the big things that has changed is work, the way that we work, the amount that we work, the expectations.â&#x20AC;? She said many people are rarely away from their job now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so easy to remain tethered to work with a smartphone. Some employers want people to turn their phones off when away from work, but that is a minority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The expectation is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re available,â&#x20AC;? she said. That constant connectedness to work and the stress it can create is where many people fall short in their adherence to safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The part where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really lacking is understanding safety of the mind, psychological safety,â&#x20AC;? said Yaeger.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are choices that we make everyday that impact our safety. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about you, except it never really is.â&#x20AC;? Safety, she said, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all about wearing safety glasses, but is also about the mind-body connection. She said those

someone is distracted, or thinking about problems away from the workplace, they may not be able to work safely. That may put both them and their co-workers at risk. Eighty per cent of workplace accidents took place when workers reported they were very stressed out, calling their stress a contributor to the accident. Workplace injuries in the United States came to 2.9 million in 2010. Repetitive strain injuries from 2000-2001 in Canada were 2.3 million people. About a quarter of all injuries on the job are back related and between 30 and 40 per cent of all workplace absences in Canada are a result of back pain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For those guys, the price could be life,â&#x20AC;? said Yaeger, who added that depending on the injury, some employees will never return to work. Others who do return to work may only return to a light-duty position or another job they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing before. For those who really enjoyed their work, they may find themselves unfulfilled in the new posting, she added. She said employers should make it clear to their employees that safe-work procedures are not optional and are designed to make work easier for everyone. All employees should then follow those procedures. If an employee injures himself or herself by working outside the safe-work procedure, it could result in disciplinary action from the employer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never want to be in a situation where you choose an injury, psychological or physical, or make a choice that leads to that because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the outcome is. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if everything is going to be OK,â&#x20AC;? said Yaeger. She also warned against work being oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, suggesting that while it can be a passion, life should start when one leaves work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How many people go home and hit the couch because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re exhausted? They have nothing left. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given it all to work,â&#x20AC;? added Yaeger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really sad is that they do that for years and years, and then they retire and everything is worn out. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy the life that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve planned for themselves because they are too worn out.â&#x20AC;? The employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is to find those â&#x20AC;&#x153;sneakyâ&#x20AC;? ways through ergonomics and creative solutions to not work as hard, she said. That may be what it takes for some people to be able to enjoy life away from their jobs.

Cornerstone trustees talk about math Trustees of the South East Cornerstone Public School Division tended to a busy agenda on March 21 when they met in Weyburn for their monthly regular open business session. The board received a presentation from Susan Nedelcov-Anderson, curriculum co-ordinator for the division, regarding the Math First project that aims at improving the mathematical skills of students in the southeast sector of the province. The process begins with early numeracy training and monitoring, she said, and learning gaps needed to be addressed between kindergarten and Grade 3. Teacher workshops that focus on the training processes included 66 teachers in the early numeracy section, 64 in the Grade 2 and 3 levels and 83 teachers for the Grades 4 through 6. Another 34 educators focused on skill building for students in Grades 7 and 8. Sessions are now planned for new teachers who will be joining staffs in 2013-

14 and evidence of student improvements will be submitted while curriculum consultants will visit each classroom, NedelcovAnderson said. Early evidence of improvements were indicated and provided through a video presentation with teacher testimonials describing the improved results they were witnessing. The trustees also received a twoperson delegation from Wapella consisting of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayor, Sandy Hintz and school community council member Melissa Raiwet. The small delegation made an appeal to the board to provide some stability to the local school system by tightening up the policy regarding attendance areas. They noted that at least a half-dozen students who should be attending school in Wapella are instead attending school in Moosomin and are being transported there in buses provided by Cornerstone. Hintz said the projected growth in their

community of 408 people will ensure an increase in student numbers in the local school, but only if the erosion of students is halted now. The kindergarten to Grade 9 school currently houses about 50 students, however there are only a few left in the more senior grades, while the increase in kindergarten enrolments is encouraging. But if the division continues to allow parents to pull their kids out of Wapella to send them to Moosomin, the local school, which is a good facility, could be doomed, Hintz said. A high turnover in staff could be prevented if that stability is provided through an enforcement of an attendance area policy that would stop that sort of thing from happening, he said. With 27 students in the lower grades, 16 in the middle and just seven in the Grade 6 to 9 category, the two-person delegation said it was a growing problem and with Moosomin schools already filled to capacity, they felt their argument was strong.

Local nuisance to serve 45 days A community â&#x20AC;&#x153;nuisanceâ&#x20AC;? will spend some time in jail after a series of minor thefts. Augustine Thomas appeared in Estevan provincial court on Monday after being denied bail last week. On Monday he pleaded guilty to a number of charges, including possessing stolen goods, theft, leaving the scene of an accident and some breaches of conditions. One of the charges stemmed from an incident in which Thomas got his truck stuck in a ditch in September 2012. Thomas had two dirt bikes in the back of his vehicle. A call was made to police who attended the scene of the accident. Upon investigating the dirt bikes were found to have been stolen on May 30. His Legal Aid lawyer noted Thomas was not accused of stealing the bikes, but simply having them in the vehicle he was driving. The bikes were returned to the owner undamaged. Thomas also pleaded guilty to a hit and run in the parking lot of a local lounge as well as a theft from a local 7-Eleven. The Crown and defence agreed to a jail term of 45 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to note Mr. Thomas is making a general nuisance of himself,â&#x20AC;? said the Crown, who said most of his offences are related to alcohol consumption. In other court proceedings, a first time impaired driving matter quickly became an expensive one for the accused. Red Deer resident Trevor Roy was given a $4,000 fine and minimum one-year driving suspension for an impaired charge after refusing to provide two clean samples.

Elm tree pruning takes effect April 1 To reduce the risk of Dutch elm disease (DED), pruning of elm trees is prohibited throughout Saskatchewan each year from April 1 until Aug. 31, the time of year when the beetle that spreads the disease is most active. Fresh cuts from pruning can attract elm bark beetles and increase the chance of an infection. Proper pruning helps keep trees healthy and is encouraged, before and after the annual ban period. The removal of dead and dying elm wood through pruning also helps to reduce beetle breeding habitat and control the beetle population. Proper and timely disposal of the pruned wood is also essential to keep DED from spreading. Throughout the year, including the ban period, prompt removal of infected elms is critical to effective disease management. Under provincial regulations, commercial pruners of elm trees are required to have taken a recognized training program or be under the supervision of someone who has. Improper pruning techniques can contribute to the spread of many tree

diseases, including DED. Because of the risk of spreading DED, transporting or storing elm firewood is illegal. Any elm wood should be disposed of promptly, using the method and locations chosen by each municipality. For more information, call the DED information line: 1-800-SASK ELM (1800-727-5356).

During the incident in question, Roy left a local bar, and after driving about a block, put his F-350 in the ditch, getting the truck stuck. When police arrived, he had been spinning his tires for some time and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to get out of the ditch himself. He did provide one sample of .210 after he was arrested but wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide another, so the reading isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t binding as an elevated sample. Judge Karl Bazin ordered the $4,000 fine, taking into consideration the large vehicle Roy was driving and the manner in which he was driving, losing control of the vehicle very quickly. The range in fine for a first impaired driving offence was recently elevated to between $1,000 and $5,000 from between $1,000 and $2,000.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can think of nine students who attended school in Moosomin who never attended Wapella School at all,â&#x20AC;? said Hintz in a presentation that occasionally turned emotional as he wound his way through the discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know we can move that student population from 50 to 71 in a couple of years and it will be back up to 91 students within four years if the kids are kept in Wapella,â&#x20AC;? Hintz said. Trustee Carol Flynn, who represents that area, showed Hintz a thick file of papers that the trustees had worked their way through in an effort to develop a firm policy regarding attendance and catchment areas. She said the topic has implications throughout the division. There was some discussion regarding the possibility of injecting an interim policy to immediately address the situation and the trustees assured Hintz and Raiwet they would be communicating with them within the week.

Estevan Chargers captain Mariah McKersie carries the puck through the neutral zone as a member of the South West Cyclones defends during Game 1 of the league final on Sunday.

Chargers repeat as league champs Despite having only a handful of players back from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship team, the Estevan Power Dodge Chargers showed on Monday that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still the best team in the South Saskatchewan Female Hockey League. The bantam A club edged the South West Cyclones 2-1 in Gull Lake in Game 2 of the league final to sweep the series and repeat as league champions. First-year forward Michaella Matthies scored both goals for the Chargers, and Megan LeBlanc added two assists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They work harder than a lot of people. Hopefully they can continue that and we can do it again next year,â&#x20AC;? said Chargers coach Brad Friars. Matthies opened the scoring at 6:43 of the first on a power play when LeBlanc skated down the left wing and fed her for a tap-in. After a scoreless second period, the Cyclones tied it at 5:36 of the third on a goal by Courtney Bredahl. But the Chargers regained the lead less than six

minutes later, when Matthies scored the eventual winner at 11:08. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She came out of our end, burned their defenceman and went in on a breakaway and went top corner. It was intense, let me tell you. The rink was packed,â&#x20AC;? said Friars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hats off to Gull Lake, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a really hard working team and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on you immediately. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the puck, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no razzle-dazzle.â&#x20AC;? The Chargers had only 11 skaters, compared to the Cyclonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 17. Friars added that goaltender Tamara Irwin and captain Mariah McKersie were also key players in the Chargersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; playoff run. The Chargers won the series opener 5-2 on Sunday at the Civic Auditorium. McKersie and Matthies each scored twice for the Bruins, with LeBlanc adding a single. McKersie opened the scoring at the 6:37 mark on a power play, firing a shot top shelf to put the Chargers

on top. The Cyclones tied it up nine minutes in with another man-advantage marker, courtesy of Bredahl. Matthies would score the third power play goal of the period with just 38 seconds remaining, giving the Chargers a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes. Estevan continued to score early in the second period. Matthies made it 3-1 at the 1:45 mark, and exactly two minutes later, McKersie potted her second of the game. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for the Cyclones to reply though, as Reece Girodat netted a power play goal five minutes into the frame. That 4-2 score would stand after two periods. The only goal of the third period came from LeBlanc at the 13:28 mark, as she scored with a forehand on a breakaway. Irwin earned the win in goal for the Chargers.

Gedak wins second straight OTS title After a slow start, the fourth end was the difference for Brent Gedak in his second straight Estevan Oilfield Technical Society curling championship on Sunday. A steal of two in the fourth turned the tide for Brent Gedak Welding in a 5-3 victory over Southern Corrosion in the A final of the 54th annual OTS bonspiel. Gedakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team included third Jarett Mosley, second Brad Orsted and lead Jesse Rosengren. Southern Corrosion skip Jeff Mosley scored two in the first end, and Gedak blanked the second before being forced to settle for one in the third end. In the fourth, Mosleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triple takeout attempt failed to give Gedak the steal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were fortunate. I gave him a chance to try a triple takeout and we were on the right side there. He just hit it a little bit on the wrong side and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Brent Gedak releases a stone to sweepers Brad Orsted and Jesse Rosengren during the A final at the 54th annual oilmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curling bonspiel on Sunday. Gedak defeated Jeff Mosley of Southern Corrosion 5-3. work out. We stole two instead of him getting two, so it was a four-point swing. It really turned the game around,â&#x20AC;? said Gedak.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were down and we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking good, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say that was the turning point, when we stole two there to take the lead

and never looked back.â&#x20AC;? Gedak followed it up with another steal of two in the fifth end to take a 5-2 lead.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get up in this type of bonspiel, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to score points and keep scoring, because to keep a lead isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always the easiest,â&#x20AC;?

he said. Mosley scored one in the sixth to make it 5-3. In the seventh end, with Gedak lying five with the hammer, the teams shook hands before he had to throw his last rock. There were plenty of rocks in play throughout the A final and Gedak said that was a strategy resulting from an earlier game in the tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keeping it clean with the lead wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really working for us, so we tried to change gears and keep on the offensive instead of trying to peel them out of rocks,â&#x20AC;? he said. Gedak got to the final by defeating Akme in the semis, while Southern Corrosion beat Frontier to make the final. Epping Energy topped Smart Power 10-6 in the B final, while Estevan Meter won the C final. The D1 and D2 final winners were Clean Harbours and Certified Energy Services, respectively.

Meeting could start Sask. Games bid process Members of the Woodlawn Athletic Park committee are urging the public to attend an important meeting next month regarding a potential bid for the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games. The meeting, which will be held April 18 at 7 p.m. at the Days Inn Taylorton Room, is intended to gauge local interest in bidding on the Games. Committee member Brian Smith has been researching the Games and what would be required to host the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The meeting will) explain a little bit about the bid process and the timeline of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to follow,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to discuss what the roles and responsibilities of a host community are, and also probably a rough structure of how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to organize ourselves if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re selected. We want to talk about the facilities that we have in the area that are already existing, as well as what facilities or venues do we think we need to renovate, upgrade or build brand new.â&#x20AC;? Smith said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking for representatives from the City of Estevan, the leisure centre, Woodlawn Regional Park, the Estevan Exhibition Association, the Estevan Chamber of Commerce, the South East Cornerstone School Division and local sports organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need them on board at the early stages,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. Fellow committee member Brian Sen-

chuk said he believes Estevan can pull it off. The city last hosted the Saskatchewan Games in 1980. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we get that gumption to go forward, I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all we need. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest challenge we have right now. Do we have the support to make the bid? I think once we know that, our bid will be superb. I think we have the desire and the people in place that are going to motivate the rest of the people. That initial meeting, by far, is the crucial step here. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at that part now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either go or stop,â&#x20AC;? said Senchuk. Roughly 1,500-2,000 volunteers are needed to host the event. Smith said the City must play a key role in getting the effort off the ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be sent to them and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to say yes, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have the funding available and support from the Chamber of Commerce and all the businesses and people of this city to put this thing on. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to sort of take the lead at the beginning and after that the organization will have (its own people in place).â&#x20AC;? Senchuk said the goal at the meeting will be to put together a committee to go forward and complete the bid proposal. Smith noted there will be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fairly tight timelineâ&#x20AC;? to submit bids and that the Saskatchewan Games Council will likely award the Games by the end of 2013.

Coalers three-peat as Big Six champs Winning never gets old, and that’s a good thing for the Bienfait Coalers. The Coalers completed a sweep over the Arcola-Kisbey Combines on Sunday in Arcola to win their third straight Big Six Hockey League final. After three blowout victories, the Coalers had to fight for the deciding win, edging the Combines 6-5 after the home side came back from a three-goal deficit. “They gave us a little bit of a scare,” said Coalers co-manager Trevor Dutka. After winning three straight games to upset the Midale Mustangs in the semis, the Combines weren’t able to push Bienfait in the first three games of the final. The Coalers won the opener 9-1 on March 19 in Bienfait and took Game 2 by a 6-2 score on Thursday in Arcola. It was another drubbing in favour of the Coalers on Friday, as they won 9-2 on home ice. “They were playing very well against Midale. I went out and saw one of the games,” said Dutka. “We all expected Arcola to come out fighting and unfortunately, in the first three games, they didn’t really get into a rhythm.”

Bienfait Coalers forward Payden Benning bumps Arcola-Kisbey Combines defenceman Sterling LaBatte during Game 1 of the league final on March 19.

Dutka said Combines goalie Stephen Norris had a strong game on Sunday. “I think their goaltender played very well and we weren’t doing what we were doing in the first couple of games or in the regular season. We weren’t scoring on our opportunities and obviously when you run into a hot goalie, those things happen.” Payden Benning, who played with the Mississippi Surge of the Southern Professional Hockey League this season, joined the Coalers for the playoffs and was the league’s top post-season scorer with 16 goals and 23 points. Regular-season leader Brennan Wrigley (22 points) and Chris Hammett (15) were right behind him. Dutka said all three players contributed “immensely” in the final, although Wrigley didn’t play in the championship-clinching game. “We rolled four lines (on Sunday) and all four lines contributed, be it checking or scoring. To win a championship, you need all four lines to contribute in whatever way they need to,” he said. Coalers goalie Jackson Walliser posted a 9-0 record and a 1.98 goals-against-average in the playoffs.

An 11-3 loss to the Yorkton Terriers in Game 2 of the South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League semis on March 19 knocked the Estevan Sherritt Coal Bruins out of the playoffs. The peewee AA Bruins saw their season end with the loss after falling 5-2 to Yorkton in Game 1 of the series. Game 2 began on the right note for the Bruins, as they scored the only goal of the first period, but it was all downhill from there. Hayden Cutler had the first-period goal, coming at the 17-minute mark.

An impressive playoff run by Combines The Arcola-Kisbey Combines werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just playing for themselves during the Big Six Hockey League playoffs. The Combines were struck by the worst kind of tragedy in December when players Brennan Luffman and Shaun Seghers were killed in an accident on their way to a game. The team went out and defeated the Oxbow Huskies 3-2 in a shootout that night, unaware of what had happened to their teammates. The Combines played for Seghers and Luffman from that point on, displaying their No. 6 and No. 26 jerseys in the Arcola arena, and they fought to a fifth-place finish with a record of 9-11-1. Arcola ramped up their game for the playoffs, first taking out the Carnduff Red Devils, then facing the second-place Midale Mustangs. After falling behind 2-0 in the best-of-five series, the Combines reeled off three straight wins, including two shutouts. The clincher was an impressive 5-0 victory in Midale.

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out Unfortunately for Arcola, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough to challenge the powerhouse Bienfait Coalers in the final, and the Coalers swept the series to repeat as league champions. But the Combines made their mark. While the deceased players will never be forgotten by friends and family, the Combines made sure that others will also remember them. It was an extraordinary run against stacked odds, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to take pride in. *** Not surprisingly, the Humboldt Broncos and Yorkton Terriers are leading their respective conference finals in the SJHL playoffs.

Yorkton leads the Highway 10 series 2-1 over the Melville Millionaires after the Mils took Game 3 on Monday night. By all accounts, the Terriers dominated the game, outshooting the Mils 40-23, and had it stolen away thanks to a stellar performance by Melville goalie Alex Wakaluk. Meanwhile, the Broncos won a pair of one-goal games to take a 2-0 lead entering last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game in Flin Flon. Although it appears the top team in each conference â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Humboldt and Yorkton â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is headed toward a meeting in the league final, both of them are playing strong opponents and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect either series to be over quickly. *** Carlyle native Brenden Morrow was traded by the only NHL team heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever played for on Sunday. The Dallas Stars traded Morrow, their 34-year-old captain, to the Pittsburgh Penguins along with a third round pick for defence prospect Joe Morrow (no relation) and a fifth round pick.

The veteran left winger had to waive his no-trade clause in order to make the deal happen. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not easy to leave the team that drafted him and employed him for 13 NHL seasons, Morrow has never won a Stanley Cup and this represents an excellent chance for him to do that. Morrow, who missed the Starsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1999 Stanley Cup victory by one season, is expected to play on a line with Evgeni Malkin and former teammate James Neal. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pittsburghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second line. Morrow isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same player he once was. At 34, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s logged a lot of mileage. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no telling how many years he has left in the NHL. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping he gets to hoist the Cup. Contact Josh Lewis at 634-2654 or sports@estevanmercury.ca. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad Rick Mercer didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cross the border to do another Talking to Americans feature after visiting Estevan on Monday.

Novice Bruins win Minot tournament The Estevan novice Bruins won a tournament in Minot on the weekend, winning all three of their games. The Bruins opened with a 14-2 victory over Carnduff. Nathan Wagstaff (4), Kaden Chrest (2), Blayze Siebert (2), Mason Fichter (2), Levi Krienke (2), Bryson George and Boden Dukart provided the scoring for Estevan. In their second game, the Bruins blanked the Southwest Dragons 8-0. Their goals came from Wagstaff (3), Hayden Lavoie (3), Dukart and Krienke. Tallan Howie earned the shutout in goal. The Bruins then advanced to the A final, where they defeated Minot 10-4.

Chrest led Estevan with a hat trick, while Siebert (2), Wagstaff, Krienke, Lavoie, Kyler Gingras and Jackson Miller also scored. Meanwhile, the novice club won the B final at a tournament in Swift Current the weekend of March 16. That one came down to a shootout, with the Bruins edging Weyburn 5-4. Wagstaff and Ty Hoste each scored twice. It was their second win over Weyburn in the tournament, after beating them 6-5 in their opener. In that game, Hoste scored twice, with Dukart, Gingras, Krienke and Conner Terness adding singles. The Bruins lost 13-4

to Dodsland in their second game. Lavoie, Gingras, Siebert and Hoste supplied the offence. In their final round-robin game, the Bruins lost a close one 4-3 to Swift Current, with Miller, Siebert and Gingras scoring. Howie played goal in all four games. The Estevan novice Bruins won a tournament in Minot on the weekend, going undefeated in three games.

Estevan Mercury

Locals play in Calgary water polo event Fleck retires from CHL Several members of the Estevan Sharks water polo program were selected to play with various Team Saskatchewan squads at the Calgary Open March 14-17. Teegan Knibbs and Donnie Mortenson played with the 14-and-under boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team, while Emily Marshall, Taeghen Hack and Alia Burlock were on the 14-and-under girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team. Auriel Bill was with the 18-and-under girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team that won gold in their division.

The 14U boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; squad won silver and the 14U girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team won bronze. Joelle Burlock was an assistant coach with the 14U girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team. Mortenson also received an All-Star selection, which are given to the top players in each age group. The other teams in the tournament represented Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia.

After 14 seasons in the Central Hockey League, Tyler Fleck is hanging up his skates. The 34-year-old defenceman announced last week that Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tulsa Oilers regular season finale would be his final game. Fleck, a Carlyle native, has captained the Oilers for the last three years. He also spent 10 seasons with the Oklahoma City Blazers and played 20 games with the Missouri Mavericks in the 2009-10 season. Fleck played 773 games in the CHL, the second-most in league history, and is one of only

five players to top the 700game mark. Fleck posted 40 goals, 197 points and 1,522 penalty minutes over that span. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tyler Fleck is the grittiest player to ever put on an Oilers jersey,â&#x20AC;? said Tulsa owner and president Jeff Lund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He gave everything he had every shift, every night. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a first-class individual and he embodies everything we want our organization to stand for. Hockey in Tulsa is not going to be the same without Tyler Fleck, but we wish him and his family nothing but the best.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Elisha Daneluk

Vandals spreading love of art By Norm Park of The Mercury The title they have given themselves is a complete misnomer. The Estevan Comprehensive Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Art Vandals are anything but vandals. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taking, they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t defacing, they are adding value to the sites they visit, the latest being a large white wall on the west end of the Estevan Shoppers Mall. A trio of painters, with a little help from a couple of their friends, are creating striking mural portraits depicting the local community that includes mining, rail, trucking, agriculture and oil, wrapped up in one body. The artists; David Kleemola, Elisha Daneluk and Eden Redman have received assistance from ECS artists/classmates Emily Vollmin and Phillippa Williams during various phases of the work that has been ongoing for a couple of weeks now. ECS art teacher Wade Kotelo, who made his way to the mall after regular school hours Tuesday afternoon to check on the work, said he was quite pleased with how the students are interpreting the theme. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I received a call from mall manager Mike Pickering asking if we had some students who might be interested. So I asked the students to work up some concept options and it was decided that Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked out the best for the space and time,â&#x20AC;? Kotelo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of three themes of Estevan we

The third main artistic contributor, Eden Redman, is missing from the photo. decided we could do. The others deal with sports and recreation and the other is family life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These three were the first up and they took ownership of the project,â&#x20AC;? Kotelo added. Elisha pointed out that â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw what the art students in the past did with the mural at SARCAN, and I wanted to give it a shot too.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to be part of a community project,â&#x20AC;? David added.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Mr. Kotelo pretty well made him do it,â&#x20AC;? said Kotelo with an added chuckle. Work featuring ECS artists from the past can be seen elsewhere in the mall in the Old Homestead Restaurant where a rolling mural bedecks the upper walls. That was produced in 2005. A trio of murals featured on the SARCAN exterior walls were applied in 2004, 2005 and 2009, again by ECS art students.

Their challenges for those three projects included changing weather which also meant some changing dates on which they could climb their scaffolds and apply the paint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solicit these projects. People have given me a call and I then check to see who and what can be done,â&#x20AC;? the art educator said. Since the work is done outside of regular school and class hours, the commitment has to be there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These kids have jobs

and other things on their schedules, so for them to take several hours over a four-week span, maybe two or three nights a week 4 to 8 p.m. is substantial,â&#x20AC;? Kotelo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here, they are really producing and it looks very good so far ... better than anticipated. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about 60 per cent done.â&#x20AC;? Asked to comment on each of the three artists who are either in Grade 11 or 12 at the Comp, Kotelo said he has found that Elisha is

â&#x20AC;&#x153;an intuitive painter who is willing to step up. David knows how to ignore me because he has a gift that few have and Eden has been a real art warrior this year, not a vandal, a warrior. I would say this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group of artists as a whole are having a hot painting year. They are a very talented group.â&#x20AC;? Kotelo said he has fielded a call from the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion to see what might be added to the front facade of their brick building, a feature structure on Fourth Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have agreed to at least look at it to see what we can do with brick and panels. I want to see what they do to it, because they have a project in mind, and then see if we can add to it.â&#x20AC;? Kotelo noted that adding projects such as this take a lot more planning than in the past since there are curriculum demands and schedules that have to be met and various units of study that have to be completed within a certain time frame. There is very little time available to extend a community project now. But when you have a talented group of young people who want to go the extra mile for the community, willing to put in the extra hours ... scholastic credits or no scholastic credits, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say no to them. In many ways itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just like some athletes or other individuals with special talents ... they do it for the love of the game, not necessarily for the rewards and recognition.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no April fool; the Beatles to storm through Spectra Place Rain is coming to Estevan to remind us that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fool who plays it cool by making his world a little colder. The forecast predicts that you can Experience The Beatles with Rain on April 1, at Spectra Place, and it may be the last opportunity for many to see the Beatles live in concert. The Broadway production explores the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; catalogue, looking at the history of the 1960s as the band moves through the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life from album to album. Mac Ruffing, who will appear in the Energy City as Paul McCartney, spoke with the Mercury last week, pointing out the Beatles really only toured for a few of years from 1963 to 1966. There was really limited opportunity to see the Beatles perform in their day, but Rain brings the spirit of the Fab Four and the 60s back to life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Beatles themselves, once they were famous, they toured for four years, from 1963, in Europe, and then came over here in 1964 and toured for two more years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They stopped in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;66, be-

cause they were prisoners of their own success. They couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out in public without getting mobbed. They became a studio band with Sgt. Pepper and everything after that.â&#x20AC;? The first part of the show is the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; early music, done in the iconic black suits, capturing the excitement around that early era. Ruffing will appear as part of the rotating lineup with members of the troupe representing the personalities and styling of John Lennon, George Harrison and the oft-maligned, ultimately forgotten Ringo Starr. Ruffing grew up playing the bass, and although he is a natural righty, has learned to play left-handed like his alter ego McCartney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great,â&#x20AC;? Ruffing said about being a Beatle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re honoured to do the music. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best music ever written and recorded, in my opinion. The audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction is just amazing. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re singing along, dancing in the aisles. We encourage that, too, so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just sitting there watching a concert.â&#x20AC;?

Mac Ruffing is Paul McCartney when he is on stage as part of Broadwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Experience the Beatles Live with Rain show. Spectra Place is hosting Rain on April 1. All the music is played live, with no recordings. There is a fifth Beatle on stage as well, who performs horns, additional percussion and any other sounds the four primary members canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never get tired of playing the songs. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

all Beatles nuts,â&#x20AC;? Ruffing said, adding that many times someone who wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an avid fan will come up to them after the show and say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to go buy an album. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great to discover the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; music, and for those who grew up as the

Beatles were recording, Rain allows them to go back in time and see the band live onc e again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My favourite (songs to play) are from the early era. Songs like I Want to Hold Your Hand, Who Loves You, Yesterday. Hey Jude gets everyone going, singing along. Even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not our music, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the original artists, but still, the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smiles on their faces are great.â&#x20AC;? Ruffing has been touring with Rain since 2010. At that time, there was one band, but the tour was performing too much for just one group to handle. There are multiple groups now so they can handle the number of shows, and the players are rotating so Ruffing will regularly play with a different cast mix, as they do week on, week off shifts. The show has toured all over the world, in Europe, Asia and South Africa as well as across North America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is universal. Even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak English, you love it,â&#x20AC;? Ruffing said of the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tunes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The show) is kind of a time capsule of the 1960s

through the music of the Beatles,â&#x20AC;? said Ruffing. As the show begins, some of the major events from the decade are retold to set the mood for the evening. The show is largely a chronological one, with Ed Sullivan introducing the Beatles in the beginning and moving the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. The show is a big production, noted Ruffing, who said there is more to it than the four band members playing Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are videos going, and there are also cameras going around shooting live images of us on the screens as if we were on television like the Ed Sullivan Show. They also shoot people in the audience in old style, black-and-white footage, intermixed with old footage of the fans going crazy.â&#x20AC;? It is a Broadway production, so the sets are expansive and detailed, and the instruments are all pieces the band members played in their careers. Ruffing added that the show is for all audiences and great for families, as well as both die hard and passive Beatles fans.

Estevan Mercury

Hill View Manor weekly happenings By Eunice Massett Hill View Manor Correspondent Spring is here ... at least that is what the calendar tells us. Where is all this snow going to go when and if it ever melts? Not into my basement, I hope. No doubt before we know it there will be tulips poking their little heads up through the snow covered ground, searching for sunshine, and hopefully finding some. Some of the residents are playing Wheel of Fortune, others Scrabble Slam and smelling the wonderful aroma of fresh baking cinnamon buns. What a great way to spend a cold snowy day. Later on they will play Kings in the Corner, then bingo, which always gets a great turnout. We will then have coffee and cookies and off again to play bridge as others join for skipbo and it is time for supper followed by the movie Marley & Me in the family room. That is a full day and I am tired just thinking about it. The days pass by very quickly for our residents and they are ready for quiet time and early bedtime in the evening. The Easter season is upon us and it brings to mind the Easters when I was a child. I recall getting all dressed up for church on Easter Sunday, wearing my â&#x20AC;&#x153;brand newâ&#x20AC;? Easter hat with a veil, white gloves, white pumps and purse. I felt wonderful as I would look around the sanctuary to compare with all the other new outfits being worn. Not exactly the best reason for attending church, and of course it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only reason, just a pleasant diversion. We lived on a farm so had a distance to drive, and on the way home we would stop in the valley and, in our Sunday best, we children, (I was the second of

eight), would go on an egg hunt. When our parents had time to drive there and hide all the eggs and candy in the ditches, among the tufts of grass and behind rocks, I will never know. I suppose the Easter Bunny helped them! This was so much fun and such a great memory. I imagine you all have similar little treasures that you can smile about. We were allowed the Easter Bunny for â&#x20AC;&#x153;fun,â&#x20AC;? but we definitely knew the real reason for celebrating Easter. As Friday approaches I hope we will acknowledge the reason for its being and be grateful that on that day our Lord was crucified for our sins and then rose again three days later so that we might have life and have it more abundantly because He defeated death at the cross. We hope that you share your days with loved ones, cuddle with your grandbabies and appreciated all your blessings. We would like to do a small tribute for Elwin Hoium who moved into Hill View Manor in March of 2005. Elwin was very content at Hill View. He involved himself in most activities and loved all church services and hymn sings. Elwin enjoyed the staff and would banter with them and tell jokes. When he would smile, his grin would light up the room. Elwin loved to help the staff do dishes after each meal. If he finished at his house, he would go to the next one and help get them rinsed before we put them in the dishwasher. He loved doing this and felt very rewarded when he did errands for us. Elwin talked to us about his younger days, telling us about raising a few cattle on his small farm and working for the RM. He was very proud to tell us about digging graves by hand, with a shovel or pick, winter as well as summer. I can hardly imagine this and how seemingly impossible it must have been. He told of burning tires or

coal to try to get rid of some of the frost so he could dig. Times were tough and I respect the elder generation so much for what they had to endure and without complaint! The stories we have heard, some happy, some sad, make us realize the privileged life we now enjoy. Elwin participated in a daily walking program where the residents walked the halls and kept track of their Hill View miles. Elwin and Bill Koch were in constant competition for the prized title. We smile when we recall how faithful Elwin was with his Bible reading. Every day you could see him sitting by his bed with the Good Book open in front of him. Perhaps that is how these people coped with the Dirty Thirties and all the hard times. Elwin also loved bingo, was very lucky and often won a loonie or quarters. We attended the celebration of his life at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Midale where his son Gary did the eulogy. Garry started to talk about the large can full of quarters they found in Elwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s belongings and I immediately knew he was referring to his â&#x20AC;&#x153;bingo winnings.â&#x20AC;? It made me laugh and brought pleasant memories of Elwin. One of the most precious memories I have of Elwin is that of his compassion for those who were ill. When we had a palliative resident, Elwin would take his Bible and go to their room, sit by their bed, and read to them. He often sat for hours and would inquire about them when he was not at their side. That touched my heart and I promised myself that when his turn came to leave this world, he would not be alone ... and he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. On July 7, 2012, with staff holding his hand, he bid farewell to this life and entered a new dimension where he no longer reads the Good Book but is embraced and welcomed by the author who inspired it.

Local students impacted by We Day Although it has been over for a few weeks, We Day is continuing to leave an impact on local students. On February 27, St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School, Sacred Heart/Sacre Coeur and Estevan Comprehensive School sponsored students to attend Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first We Day in Saskatoon. A total of 60 students attended the event. We Day was created by the organization Me To We, a movement started by Craig Keilburger and his brother Mark. This movement focuses on switching our focus on ourselves to a more global perspective, concern for the other. Students were inspired and motivated to create social change in their own communities. This experience is one that students will always remember. A number of the students recently reflected on the event and how it made an impact on them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was one little girl who spoke who was doing so much for being so little. I realized if she could do it, then anyone

really could. A girl who was blind biked 100km in 100 days. She raised over $5000 for doing this. To do something when you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really see what you did is amazing,â&#x20AC;? said Quintin Davidson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But what she did inspired someone like me. There was one guy, Craig Keilberger who started all of this when he was 12 and I am not sure how old he is now, but to still be doing it shows how much he cares about it. It made me feel that I could do one little thing but yet still contribute to the cause. One day the world will be a better place because of these people. I am one of these people.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were lucky enough to be a few of the people who got to go to We Day in Saskatoon on Wednesday Feburary 27,â&#x20AC;? said Peyton Holt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Day is a day when motivational speakers such as Craig and Marc Keilburger spoke about freeing the children and ending poverty. We Day was probably the most inspirational day we have ever went to, after hearing all of the

speakers and their stories it made us want to help change the world and free the children. There were some amazing performers such as Hedley, Karl Wolf, Shawn Desman, Lil JaXe, and One Drop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some other inspirational speakers were Martin Sheen, Mia Farrow, Aislinn Paul, Luke Bilyk, Robin Wiszowaty, Jesse Giddings, Molly Burke. On April 18th is a day where everyone goes silent. If you choose to go silent you are helping to free the children. We go silent because silence is all you hear when you are going through poverty and bullying. If the whole world gets together we can help end world hunger.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was one of the few that had the opportunity to go to We Day and experience it and felt it was unbelievable. One of the many speakers, Molly Burke, was a young woman that was just talking about getting bullied. We all thought she was just a normal girl,â&#x20AC;? said Lanelle Bilokraly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She talked about what the girls did to her, but what we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when she was telling us about it was that she was blind. She lost her vision at 14 years old. From not only Molly, but everyone who spoke and performed at We Day, taught me that is doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how old you are or if you have a disability you can still change the world.â&#x20AC;?

Midale community happenings By Catrina Moldenhauer Midale Correspondent The Midale Skating Club will hold their annual carnival on Thursday, March 28 at 7 p.m. The children, under the direction of coach Kelsie Druck and her helpers, Shayna Prawdzik, Taysha Prawdzik and Kolten Ganson, have done a fantastic job this year. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the Midale and Area M.O.R.E. 2000 auction will be held on Saturday, April 6. Supper is at 6 p.m., with the auctions to follow. This is the biggest fundraiser for the Midale Civic Centre which houses the curling rink as well as the Harry

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Memorial Arena. First prize in the Dutch auction is a $5000 shopping spree at Audio Video Unlimited in Estevan. Tickets for the supper and auction a r e a v a i l a b l e a t T J â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Country Market, Midale Variety Store, Midale To w n O ff i c e , M i d a l e Conexus Credit Union, Tumbleweeds Restaurant, Midale Qwik Stop and Macoun Co-op. To reserve a table and/or tickets you may also call Catrina Moldenhauer. In order to help those students in Grades 1-6 who are struggling with, or wish to improve their math and reading skills, Midale Central School is starting both a Reading and Math Club. The clubs will run from 3:15 to

4 p.m. The first Math Club session was held on Monday, March 25, with future sessions scheduled for Wednesday, March 27, Monday, April 17 and Wednesday, April 17. Reading Club will be held on Monday, April 8 and Wednesday, April 10. On Thursday, April 11, they will be having a Math Carnival Night for the students. With the help of the SCC, they will be holding a carnival similar to the ones theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in the past, with the twist being the students canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t purchase tickets - they will win their tickets by answering math questions! More details to follow. Have a great week Midale and area!

Laurianne Marie Broome (Landry) Laurianne Marie Broome (Landry) passed away in her home in Deloraine, Man., on Monday, March 18, 2013 at the age of 57 after a two-year battle with cancer. Laurianne was born to Helen and Eugene Landry of Oxbow, Sask. on January 24, 1956 and had two sisters - Anita and Carol. She was predeceased by her mother, Helen; as well as by grandparents, Nels and Pearl Nielsen and Theo and Flora Gervais. On January 26, 1974 she married Randy Dubuc and later had two children - a daughter, Connie and a son, Marc. Throughout their time together, they held residence in Regina, Torquay and Estevan, Saskatchewan. In 2007, Laurianne made one more move to Deloraine, Manitoba where she would subsequently marry Kevin Broome on August 4. Her home there was her pride and joy and she and Kevin spent many hours making it the lovely place it is today where friends and family always were/are welcome. Laurianne was the proverbial â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack of all Trades.â&#x20AC;? She enjoyed cooking, sewing, painting and interior design and managed to incorporate at least one of her passions into the various jobs she held in life - taking great pride in each one. In her â&#x20AC;&#x153;down timeâ&#x20AC;? she loved to travel - with recent trips to Hawaii and Jamaica, spend time entertaining friends and family, or simply just sitting down to read a good book. Family meant the world to her and she spent countless hours doting on her five grandchildren, whether it be sewing Christmas outfits or swimming with them in the pool. Laurianne was an inspiration to many, very passionate and loving. She will undoubtedly be missed dearly by all. Thank you to her doctors and all the caring individuals at the Deloraine Cancer Center. A celebration of her life will take place at the Mountview Center in Deloraine, Manitoba on Saturday April 6, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Messages of condolence may be made online at: www.wheatlandsfs.com Smith Funeral Home 204-747-2088 www.wheatlandsfs.com

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Marvin E. Woodrow on Friday, March 15, 2013 at the Yorkton Regional Hospital at the age of 65 years. After a long, hard, courageous battle with cancer, Marv passed away peacefully with family at his side. Marv is lovingly remembered by Marilyn (Wock), wife of 42 years; son, Greg (Carrie) of Regina, their children Noah, Caleb and Adam; daughter, Shauna (Chris) of Kelowna; brother, Ed (Char) Woodrow of Pender Island; sister, Myrna (Bob) Metzler of Yorkton; brothers-in-law, Raymond (Joan) Wock, David (Marilyn) Wock, Richard Wock, Bob (Beth) Wock all of Estevan; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. Marv was predeceased by his parents, Clayton and Vera Woodrow; his mother and father-inlaw, Martha and John Wock; special Aunt, Gladys Woodrow; brother-in-law, George Wock; nephew, Stephen Wock; niece, Christa Wock. Marv was born April 21, 1947, the youngest of three children to Clayton and Vera Woodrow. After he graduated Grade 12 from Luther College in Regina, he found employment at SPC in 1969. He earned his Electrical Journeyman at SIAST while employed with SPC and started as a Transmission Technician in 1974. He transferred to Yorkton in 1988 as an Area Transmission Technician and worked there until his retirement in 2007. Marv always thought highly of colleagues and continued their coffee breaks even after his retirement. Marv loved the outdoors, be it golfing, boating, cross-country and downhill skiing, walking the pets, swimming, water skiing, kayaking and even splitting wood! His wife, family and friends were his constant companions on all his adventures. Marv was a faithful lifelong member of the Lutheran church. He was a member of the Trinity Church council in Estevan and Yorkton, as well as Sunday School Superintendent and VBS co-ordinator at St. Paul’s Church in Yorkton. His love of life gave him a playful and enthusiastic rapport with his grandchildren and children in general. Marv will be sorely missed for his generosity, caring and willingness to help anyone in need. The family extends their thanks to the Allen Blair Clinic, Dr. Zarkovic, Dr. Vorrester, Dr. Van Eden, Home Care and all the staff at Yorkton Regional Hospital Palliative Care for the wonderful care they provided Marv. A special thanks to Pastor Fred Schneider for his friendship, spiritual guidance and support. In lieu of flowers, donations in memoriam may be made to the Allan Blair Cancer Center, 204-3775 Pasqua Street, Regina, SK, S4S 6W8 or the Palliative Care Unit at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre 270 Bradbrooke Drive, Yorkton, SK, S3N 2K6.

Beware of online vehicle scams March is Fraud Awareness Month in Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan RCMP Federal Investigations - Economic Crime Section, Saskatchewan Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority and the Saskatoon and Regina Police Services are joining forces to educate the public about the types of frauds investigators are seeing across the province. One of the focuses this month is online vehicle purchasing scams. In the release from the RCMP, they ask why would someone you don’t know, who lives in a different city, in the United States for example, want to sell you a $30,000 vehicle for $20,000? Plainly and simply, they wouldn’t. It’s that easy. Therefore, it must be easy to avoid getting “ripped-off” on that dream car you found down in Texas, right? Unfortunately, it’s not that easy for everyone. People can make bad decisions when they think they are getting a good deal. Think of the last time you got an unexpectedly good deal on something you really, really wanted. It’s a rush. And that rush of endorphins can encourage you to make bad decisions. Be honest with yourself; have you ever made a bad call when you were too much having fun? Now that you have thought about that wrong decision that felt so right, there are some things to keep in mind when making an online vehicle purchase. Even if you think you are immune to getting “rippedoff” keep reading; there are some good resources presented in this article for everyone thinking about making an online vehicle purchase. The Internet is an invention that changed our lives, arguably as much as the invention of the wheel. The wheel changed human behaviour slowly at first, speeding up with its use in the automobile. The Internet, on the other hand, has changed human behaviour in less than a generation. Before the Internet, how could you have found that mint 1984 Nissan 300ZX turbo at a dealership in Ohio; or the 1957 Harley that looks just like the one your grandpa used to ride? The list goes on and on. The Internet has been a great tool for the motor vehicle enthusiast whether it’s for finding your dream chariot or just talking to someone who has a great interest or knowledge about it. But it also has opened the door for thieves and fraudsters to take advantage of your raised pulse and excitement about that great find. There are no “Ten Commandments” on how to purchase a vehicle online but if a proper strategy could be summarized, it would be in one word; research. The Internet is perhaps the greatest research

tool you will ever have and it can be used to dramatically lessen the risk you expose yourself to when buying a car “electronically.” There are so many resources that allow you to make informed decisions. At the end of this article there are two links that present an abundance of information on importing a vehicle to Canada. You are spending your money and you may lose it. It is difficult enough to extradite suspected murderers from one country to another so once you become victimized by a relatively less serious Internet fraud, chances are very high that nobody is going to be arrested and you won’t be getting your money back. Before you even decide to buy a vehicle online, ask yourself if you even need to. There are many local dealerships that are very reputable. They have access to auto auctions and can bring in the specific vehicle you want from anywhere across Canada. They have the experience to handle these matters. It’s their business. Even if you buy a car locally and have problems, there are laws and policies in place to deal with them. If you buy a vehicle at a dealership or worse, from a private seller who is 3000 kilometres away, how easy will it be to get them to fix a bad transmission they hid from you? Is that dealership going to worry about getting your repeat business the way a local dealership should? The thought of buying a vehicle south of the border in order to save thousands of dollars is not always worth it or even valid. Is it worth the trouble to spend 60 hours on the road, deal with the paperwork of importing a vehicle and have no warranty in order to save $1000 or more? It might be, but after adding everything up, a local purchase may present the smarter buy. Do the research and decide; it’s your money. Keep in mind that the police and your lawyer may not be able to help you after the money is gone. If you decide that you want that vehicle online or the one listed at an established dealership, do your research. You will dramatically lessen the risk. But remember that you are taking a risk and nothing will completely eliminate it. Here are some websites you can check. There are many more sites available so don’t limit yourself; the more you learn, the better you will be able to make an informed decision. Major online auction sitespresent a lot of information that helps protect the consumer.

Spring Car Care Facts about fuel ratings (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Reducing the cost of driving â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to our wallet and to the environment â&#x20AC;&#x201C;requires factual information. Fuel consumption ratings can help consumers make informed choices. But are these ratings factual? In Canada, vehicle manufacturers test their own vehicles using standardized testing and analytical procedures approved by the government to generate fuel-consumption data. This data is published annually in Natural Resources Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fuel Consumption Guide. The fuel consumption values can also be found on the EnerGuide Labels which are affi xed to every new light-duty vehicle sold in Canada. Since it is impossible to consistently duplicate on-road testing with so many variables, a controlled laboratory testing method is followed instead. This ensures that all vehicles are evaluated under identical conditions and that the results are consistent and repeatable across all manufacturers. Estimated fuel-consumption ratings are derived from both a city and a highway test, and the values generated through this procedure allow fair and reliable comparisons of different vehicles. The city test simulates a 12 kilometre (km) trip that includes 18 stops, while the highway test simulates a 16 km trip that does not include any stops. The ratings reflect the results of the specific simulated tests. While the ratings are achievable under ideal conditions and when applying fuel-efficient driving techniques, the following factors can

<RXU &RPPXQLW\ 1HZVSDSHU 6LQFH

significantly affect the fuel consumption of a vehicle: â&#x20AC;˘ driving style and behaviour; â&#x20AC;˘ vehicle acceleration; â&#x20AC;˘ braking and driving speed; â&#x20AC;˘ age and condition of the vehicle; temperature and weather â&#x20AC;˘ traffic and road conditions; â&#x20AC;˘ drive systems and powered accessories. In addition, small variations in manufacturing can cause fuel consumption differ-

ences in the same make and model, and some vehicles donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attain optimal fuel consumption until they are â&#x20AC;&#x153;run inâ&#x20AC;? for about 6,000 to 10,000 km.



The estimated ratings are a useful tool for comparing vehicles before you buy, but they do not accurately predict the fuel consumption you will get. Natural Resource Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fuel Consumption Guide, along with additional information and tips can be found online by visiting www.vehicles.gc.ca

The importance of pressure: Saving you money while keeping you safe (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Maintaining proper tire pressure is one of the easiest ways to lengthen the life of your tires and save you money. Learning the basics of tire inflation will go a long way in benefiting you, your vehicle and your wallet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Properly inflated tires provide even ground contact which prevents your tires from wearing disproportionately and reduces rolling resistance meaning lower fuel consumption,â&#x20AC;? explains tire expert Bill Hume, vice-president of Hankook Tire Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The

improved fuel economy could save you up to two weeks' worth of pump costs per year.â&#x20AC;? So how do you know if your tires are at the right level? â&#x20AC;˘ Check your inflation levels monthly by inserting a tire pressure gauge into the valve stem when the tire is cold. The number should match the suggested inflation listed on the drivers' side door placard or the vehicle owner's manual. â&#x20AC;˘ Over-inflated tires are more

susceptible to damage and can lead to a harsher, bumpier ride, while under-inflation can increase wear and create drag. A quick visual check may seem tempting; however, tires can be under-inflated by 20 per cent and still look perfect.

Trinity Tower community happenings By Peggy Bolton Trinity Tower Correspondent Trinity Tower is a seven-storey, 52-apartment complex that offers both rentals and life leases. It is a wonderful home, and a great community in which to live. I have been remiss in not mentioning a couple of people who work here. Donna Hanson fills in for Dianne when she is away, and she also gives Dianne a hand with special events and parties. Don Ereth is our â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tool Man Tim.â&#x20AC;? He does the small repair jobs - well, maybe some not so small, right Don? Susanne Widenmaier was so happy when her grandson Wade picked her up and took her out cruising

in the countryside. It was an enjoyable break from being inside all winter. Thank you to the Oxbow Bow Valley Villa for the puzzles. We paid it forward and sent some of ours to Creighton Lodge. Doing puzzles is a good pastime on winter days. Get well wishes are extended to Virgil Anderson. We all hope that you recover quickly. Marie Paladeau from Calgary is visiting with her sister, Ione Martin. In one of our recent storms, a sweet little fly visited one of the apartments to bring tidings of the impending spring. The lady of the house killed it. The moral of this story is not to mention spring to Mrs. K., as I am not sure what may happen to you. Yes, we have lots of fun here!

This week I would like to introduce you to a quiet woman, Lorraine Ollenberger. Lorraine was born on a farm at Macoun, and worked at the Co-op for 26

years. In 1991, she decided to move to Trinity Tower as this is where her sister was living, and Lorraine is now our longest-term resident. She has seen many people

coming and going over the years. Lorraine enjoys crafts, knitting, crocheting and plastic ware. She enjoys shopping and is happy that

60 and Over Club news Submitted by Shirley Graham Club Secretary Wife to husband, while fishing: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, but it seems to me that the boot you caught yesterday put up more of a fight than the inner tube you caught today!â&#x20AC;? (Love this one.) Well, old Mother Nature did it again. We had to cancel our St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakfast, but we do hope to have it in April. The bridge played on Wednesday, March 20 had some impressive scores. Margaret Sawyer took first place with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;whoppingâ&#x20AC;? 7040, followed by Pat Parent with 6240, and last but certainly not least, Carrie Leptick with 5630. Good job, ladies. The cribbage players are enjoying the change ... having a different partner each game is more fun. Winners of the cribbage played on Thursday, March 21

were: Shirley Graham finished in first place, Russell Daniels came second, and third went to Irma Lesiuk. We have received word that Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clothing will be displaying her fashions here on April 5 and 6. Be sure to mark your calendar. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Kidding A man walking along the beach, was noticed by God. God said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have been a good man all your life; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do something special for you.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, I always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fly. Could you build me a bridge?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible,â&#x20AC;? said God. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well then,â&#x20AC;? said the man, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been divorced three times and I would like to know what makes a woman â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tick.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? After some deliberation, God said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will that be two lanes or four?â&#x20AC;? Be patient, spring is coming.
