City slapped with lawsuit

⇢ A3

The City of Estevan has been hit with a six-figure lawsuit from a local company. The Mercury has learned Turnbull Excavating has sued the City of Estevan over issues stemming from a tender issued earlier this year. Filed on Oct. 17 in the Court of Queen’s Bench, the suit accuses the City of failing to act in good faith and breach of contract. Turnbull Excavating is asking for damages in excess of $450,000 plus court costs. In an interview Friday, Mayor Roy Ludwig said the matter was before the courts and it would be irresponsible to speak on the particulars of the case at this time. How-

ever, he added that the City hopes for a speedy resolution and to mend their relationship with Turnbull Excavating. “(Turnbull Excavating) is a good contractor in our community and we hope to get past this and continue what we thought was a good working relationship,� Ludwig said. The Mercury also contacted Turnbull Excavating for a comment on the story but had not received one as of press time. According to the statement of claim obtained by The Mercury, the suit revolves around a tender issued in the spring to build a 1.2 kilometre pipeline of 450 mm

diameter PVC pipe and 2.4 km of 350 mm HDPE gravity sewer main. On May 3, Turnbull Excavating submitted a bid for $3.216 million which ultimately proved to be the low tender by over $380,000. On May 7, the suit says that Associated Engineering — the firm that was hired to issue the tender and review the bids on behalf of the City —

recommended that Turnbull Excavating be awarded the tender and asked the City for instructions to issue a notice of award to the company. However, on May 22, the claim noted that Turnbull Excavating received a letter from city manager Jim Puffalt, which said, in part “Attached please (sic) the summary of the recent tender showing the low tender to be Turnbull construction at the tendered price of $3,191,345.00 the City of Estevan is prepared to award the contract to the low bidder however require written commitment to pay one-quarter of the cost as previously discussed.

“It is proposed that the City manage the contract and bill the partners on a monthly basis the costs of the contract ($878,086.00 each). Please correspond as quickly as possible so the work can start.â€? The issue of paying the $878,086 is one of the major points of contention as Turnbull Excavating claims in the suit that there was no discussion with the City about paying one-quarter of the cost and the payment was not a term of the tender contract. Because they did not agree to the term, Turnbull Excavating was ultimately not awarded the contract. Suit ⇢ A2

Estevan Mercury

Suit alleges breach of contract ⇠ A1 However, in the statement of claim, they contend that because they did submit a compliant bid, upon submission of the bid a contract was formed between Turnbull Excavating and the City. Further, the suit alleges that the City was not authorized by the terms of the invitation to bid to reject all bids on the basis that a quarter of the cost was to be remitted back to the City and did not cancel the competition within the meaning of the terms of the invitation to bid. By failing to award the contract to Turnbull Excavating, the suit contends that the City breached the terms of the contract and failed to enter into any negotiations with Turnbull Excavating regarding any cost saving measures required or available, preliminary to the awarding of the contract. The suit goes on to claim that the City breached its obligation of good faith and duty to treat all bidders fairly when they rejected all bids on the condition that one-quarter of the project be returned to the City; by

inserting a term in the acceptance of the bid that was not disclosed, expressed or implied and by failing to disclose that a quarter of the project costs were to be reimbursed in the invitation to bidders. The suit also goes on to claim that the City failed to apply the standard practice and custom in the construction industry when it failed to negotiate with the lowest bidder in the event that bid prices were higher than expected and inserted a valuation criteria, which was not disclosed and considered commercially unreasonable. It also says that a contract was breached when the City did not award the contract for the job as per the instructions to the bidders. As a result of those alleged issues, Turnbull Excavating is asking for in excess of $450,000 plus legal costs and the cost to prepare the bid, applicable interest, compensation for loss of opportunity for projects they were not able to bid on because of the irrevocability of the bid and anything further that the judge sees fit to award.

Keess topping it off with ride to STF presidency By Norm Park of The Mercury Note: The Mercury is embracing a unique opportunity to explore education from the perspective of two local residents who have just recently been elected to senior roles in provincial and national educational administration. The first of this twopart series sees us visiting with former Estevan Comprehensive School educator Colin Keess who assumed the role as president of the Saskatchewan Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation this past summer. Next week weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take another look at education administration from the trusteesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; perspective as we visit with Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Janet Foord who was recently selected to a similar role with the Saskatchewan School Boards Association and a seat at the table with counterparts from all across Canada. On Nov. 1, The Mercury made contact with Keess at the STFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head office in Saskatoon and we began by asking him why he wanted to be involved on this side of the teaching/administrative game. Keess pondered it for a moment, then said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been involved in teacher advocacy, beginning with a term as a representative in the Shamrock School Division (East Central Sask.). Since then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve

been on the provincial body for nine years. Once on the executive I felt it would be interesting to go through the chairs, if it were possible, and here I am.â&#x20AC;? It was noted that Keess was at the forefront of teacher rallies and demonstrations a couple of summers ago. These events, including limited work-related actions and withdrawals of service were part of a difficult negotiating period that eventually led to a new contract signed between the Ministry of Education and the provincial teachers represented by the STF. Keess admitted that the discussions were difficult at times, but the educators showed resolve and â&#x20AC;&#x153;now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take care of other important things. We get to represent about 12,000 teachers and as an advocate for them, I am finding that I am travelling to several locations as we promote education and teachers in all manner of ways. I was just up north recently, getting a good feel for what happens there. We have to be concerned with what is happening on a number of fronts, like perhaps French immersion teachers or teachers for specialized areas where the supply can be spotty.â&#x20AC;? Dealing with local teacher associations is also part of the job while keeping in an almost constant contact with the Education Ministry and their evolving

And teacher training at the University of Regina and University of Saskatchewan is doing the job and such advanced programs as virtual classrooms will be pulled off with an expertise that few will be able to match. In the meantime, the STF still needs to husband a big budget, run herd on a significant pension fund that he says is well maintained with tons of diligence provided by financial caretakers â&#x20AC;&#x153;who are doing risk analysis every day up on the fourth floor here in our office.â&#x20AC;? Sliding back to the outreach model, Keess said the STF is also very proud of its overseas projects, especially the sponsorship partnership they have with India, which entails two STF members making their way to the country every year under the Project India banner while Indian teachers come here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long standing relationship with them and without a doubt there is a universality with children component that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re privileged to be involved with, privileged to be in a position to be giving back. We have senior administrative staff heading out to India in January.â&#x20AC;? Keess said that while he has the STFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so-called top job, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cognizant of the fact that he is simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice.â&#x20AC;? He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy to be involved in this fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public relations campaign

that is designed to give the public a taste of the classroom realities. The blog is Thisistheclassroom.ca The themes change, but Keess said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to let the public know that education is open for public consumption, willing to share the message of changing demographics in the province and how educators are responding to the challenges, whether it be English as additional language classes, coping with more kids â&#x20AC;&#x153;a real good problem to have,â&#x20AC;? or the challenges of finding good facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;STF has a role to play,â&#x20AC;? he said in conclusion. Keess said he has been seconded to the provincial body, allowing him to take a formal leave-of-absence from his teaching duties at ECS for the year and then the decisions will evolve from there. He and his wife Leigh are residing in Saskatoon but are maintaining their home in Estevan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be back in Estevan, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our home. And yes, I do miss the kids and the school. I did manage to get back there once since I started this job and got to see the kids for all the right reasons, and I see how things are so positive there, and I do miss it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult for the teacher to pull himself out of the classroom, no matter how exciting the new job may be.

German language classes begin this month A night was set aside last week to give local residents an opportunity to explore German culture and language, courtesy of the Estevan Public Library staff and the German Freundschaft Society. Katharina Ulbrich served as hostess for the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program that included an exploration of Germany in armchair fashion. The 50 minute presentation in the library, What you need to know about Germany, provided some historical references, geography, a look at historical German figures and a glance at some of the laws of the

country where the legal drinking age is 16 while the legal driving age is 18, for instance. The presentation was made by Ulbrich who has spent most of her life in Germany. The presentation also included a visit with Estevan author Marie Calder who has written extensively about Germany through her Other Side series of books that tracked her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post Second World War adventures in that country after befriending members of the Schmidt family. The well-researched items found in the series tells a lot about the every day life

in post-war Germany. It was then announced that German language classes, instructed by Ulbrich, will be offered beginning later this month with all classes being held in the public library. Sprechen Sie Deutsch? (Do you speak German?), a well recognized phrase around the world, will allow students of all ages to get familiar with the language. The classes will start Nov. 27 at 6 p.m. in the library and will be held every Tuesday until the end of January. The classes will be about one hour duration. Ulbrich said the classes

are being made possible through the Saskatchewan German Council, Sask Culture and Saskatchewan Lotteries who are providing materials. The German language schools of Regina and Saskatoon also assisted in setting up the first steps of the curriculum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will start from scratch,â&#x20AC;? said Ulbrich. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll teach the basics, what you would need to survive in a foreign country like being able to introduce yourself, ask directions or order a meal. Taking the course would be helpful for people who want to travel to Germany.â&#x20AC;?

$GYDQFHG6OHHS7HFKQRORJ\

Fun will be the ultimate goal for those taking the class, she added. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a non-competitive class so students who want to learn a little faster will be given more homework to help them along. The focus on the language classes will be on pronunciation, listening to native speakers and repeating phrases plus class-room interaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the end of January students will be able to follow easy directions, introduce themselves in a simple sentence and have a better idea about what Germany is about, its size, regions,

customs and general social rules, the dos and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ts,â&#x20AC;? said Ulbrich. If there is enough interest in continuing the experiment, the class could be offered through to March, but that will be determined later. Ulbrich noted that students of all ages are welcome and no experience is needed. She also said she is searching for a co-instructor, someone who has German as their native language. Anyone with those credentials who might be willing to assist is asked to contact her at 388-2700 or contact the German clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative Agnes at 634-4414.

After some delays, new port of entry opens It encountered some delays and a suspension of the original contract, but after more than four years the new United States Portal Port of Entry is now open. The official opening was marked on Oct. 31 with the completion of the $43 million project. Brian King, of the United States Customs and Border Protection, noted the previous border station was built in 1931, so the building was due for an upgrade considering the changes in the kinds of vehicles and quantity that go through the port on a daily basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our border operations have changed significantly since 1931, and our traf-

Plenty to give during the holidays The Christmas season is around the corner and the Salvation Army has many ways for everyone to give something back to the community again this year. Lieutenant Brian Bobolo of the Estevan Salvation Army noted the local food bank is well stocked at the moment thanks to recent food drives in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a couple of food drives that people have done,â&#x20AC;? said Bobolo, noting the Estevan Comprehensive School did one on Halloween night, collecting about 500 pounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really great thing and really helpful for us.â&#x20AC;? He said they are about 80 per cent stocked going into Christmas, which is where he would like to be. Bobolo noted they

require greater donations around Christmas because, on top of what is usually made available through the food bank, they give out more with their Christmas hampers. He said they want to ensure everybody is able to have a good meal over the holidays. The Salvation Army uses some of their funds to go toward turkeys and other traditional Christmas foods that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t typically in stock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas will put a bit of a drain on the food bank, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be looking for the new year and maybe a few food drives for the winter, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get through Christmas for sure,â&#x20AC;? Bobolo said. The Salvation Army will receive a portion of the proceeds from the Huron Carole concert and a food drive will be held at the Estevan Bruins

Lieutenant June Bobolo of the Estevan Salvation Army places items in the local food bank. The bank is well stocked for the coming holiday season, and there are further food drives planned in December. game on Dec. 7. The Kettle Campaign will kick off on Nov. 24, running straight to Dec. 24. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal for the campaign

is $30,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All those funds go to all our family service ministries: the food bank, the camping ministry we send kids to in

Home neutering concerns SPCA The Saskatchewan Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is concerned with the number of reports of dogs that have been seriously injured as the result of neutering procedures carried out by their owners. The term neutering or castration refers to the re-

moval of the testicles of a male animal. Spaying is the term for the removal of the reproductive organs of a female animal. In the majority of the home neutering cases handled by the Saskatchewan SPCA in the past few months, it appears that rubber Elastra-

60 and Over Club notes Submitted by Shirley Graham Club Secretary Did you ever get the feeling your parents didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like you when ... they parked your carriage in a tow-away zone or they put a live teddy bear in your crib? The meeting on Thursday, Nov. 1 went very well with 24 members and four visitors attending, which also resulted in seven tables for cribbage. Another great turnout! Winners were: June Engelke and Dot Bridges, first; our new friends Margaret and Eric Parker, second; and third was â&#x20AC;&#x153;scoopedâ&#x20AC;? by Grace Carlson and Shirley Graham. Bridge was played on Wednesday, Oct. 31 with Bernie Collins finishing in first place, Margaret Sawyer came second, and third went to Ed Heidinger. The date for the Christmas supper and party has been confirmed, and it will be held

on Tuesday, Dec. 11. It was decided to have the meal at 5 p.m. in order to convenience those who like to play cards. The club members will also be donating to the food bank. The 60 and Over Club is going to be very busy for the next couple of months with cards to be played three times a week, as well as hosting â&#x20AC;&#x153;square dancersâ&#x20AC;? three times a week. We already have some Christmas bookings and our â&#x20AC;&#x153;jam sessionâ&#x20AC;? scheduled in December, so we are growing. My story of the week: I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permission to join a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fitnessâ&#x20AC;? club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated and jumped up an down and perspired for an hour, but by the time I got my â&#x20AC;&#x153;leotardsâ&#x20AC;? on, the class was over! Have a good day!

necrotic tissue, and secondary infection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often the cost of medical care and surgical repair necessary following this attempt at neutering far outstrips the cost of a proper surgical castration done by a veterinarian,â&#x20AC;? Currie said. The Saskatchewan SPCA notes that spay/neuter helps decrease the number of unwanted and feral dogs and cats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Saskatchewan SPCA reminds owners that spaying and neutering of pets should be done by a veterinarian,â&#x20AC;? said Pugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Owners who put the health and safety of their dogs at risk through home neutering practices may be charged for violations of The Animal Protection Act and/or the Criminal Code.â&#x20AC;?

tor bands have been used to cut off the blood supply to the testicles of the dogs, said Kaley Pugh, manager of animal protection services at the Saskatchewan SPCA. The use of Elastrator bands is not an acceptable method of sterilizing dogs, says the Saskatchewan Veterinary Medical Association Animal Welfare Committee. Unfortunately, many veterinary practitioners have seen the consequences of attempts at lay castration. Dr. Judy Currie, registrar of the SVMA, notes that castration of a dog by banding causes extreme pain for the dog, and may result in a number of serious complications. These risks include ineffective castration (missed testicle), self-mutilation by the dog as it licks at painful or

the summer and some of the money will go to the Out of the Cold program that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing in partnership with St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church. Some of the funds will be saved for emergency relief,â&#x20AC;? he added. The Kettle Campaign is the Salvation Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major fundraiser of the year, and Bobolo said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great because there are no administrative costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One hundred per cent of it stays in the community.â&#x20AC;? He noted they are still working on plans for the Nov. 24 kickoff, but in the past it has been held at the Estevan Shoppers Mall. The Angel Tree will be up again at Walmart from Dec. 3 to 15, allowing people to purchase gifts for children who may not receive them this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Customers come by and pick a little angel card off the tree,â&#x20AC;? said Bobolo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is information on the card for what child they buy for, so there is the age and gender

of the child. People pick up the card, they walk into the store and buy something and take the angel card and the purchase back to the tree.â&#x20AC;? At the end of each day, the gifts are collected and taken to the toy store. The toy store will be held on Dec. 20 and 21, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the children will come in to receive their gifts. The store has been held at the Anglican Church but due to some renovations it will be moved this year. The location has yet to be determined. The Salvation Army will also accept donations when the Holiday Train rolls through town, stopping in North Portal and then Estevan on Dec. 17. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all for the community, right? The food bank belongs to the community. We believe nobody should go hungry at Christmas and nobody should go cold throughout winter,â&#x20AC;? Bobolo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what all these drives are all about.â&#x20AC;?

A6 EDITORIAL

It’s such a nuisance These symbolic poppies that we are supposed to be wearing these days are just a nuisance. They keep slipping off the jacket lapels, the collars on the blouses or get brushed off winter coats. They never seem to last, the pins are lame, the centres fall out sometimes and if you don’t put them on just right, they’ll either disappear altogether or we get those sharp pin pricks of pain as we lean over our work and discover that the way we have anchored them on our clothing is painfully wrong. We wish we didn’t have to wear these poppies ... they really are a nuisance. But then, getting an arm or a leg shot off in the name of democracy is a nuisance too. Being bitten by rats in cold and muddy trenches is somewhat of a nuisance, we would think. Swallowing lethal gases of war, not fun. Losing teenaged loved ones in a foreign country or having them come home facing years of therapy to relieve themselves of post traumatic stress disorder (shell shock) can be downright frustrating, can’t it? Living in prisoner of war camps for years, barely staying alive on diets of gruel and bugs while being subjected to the worst of man’s inhumanity towards his fellow man can be a nuisance at times. Being shot out of the skies, having your flesh burned with no magic drugs immediately available to ease the pain ... that’s a nuisance. Going down in a ship on the high seas, or being trapped in a military tank with no means of escape ... that’s probably more than a mere nuisance. Booking flights for long trips overseas to visit the resting place of those you should have known and loved, but didn’t get the chance ... that’s nuisance. Having to learn to hate those who you should be embracing in fellowship instead. Not a great feeling. So yes, trying to hang on to that poppy on your collar can get a little frustrating. Forget the inconvenience. Don’t forget what it symbolizes. Wear it and recall, or if you’re too young to remember, then wear it and make the effort to learn why you’re wearing it. Life can be full of horror and also full of hope. The poppy reminds us of both.

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

Urban and rural differ, poll shows Those who keep saying we are all the same in Saskatchewan conveniently ignore the reality that rural and urban folks do think differently. It’s a thought worth keeping in mind the next time you hear federal Conservative politicians tell you the province should retain split urban/rural seats - a concept politically advantageous to Conservatives these days but not necessarily the best way to represent either rural or urban voters. But don’t take my word for it, just look at any polling results. We are again reminded of this by the recent work by the University of Saskatchewan Social Sciences Research Laboratories that polled Saskatchewan people for the Taking the Pulse series. The massive survey of 1,750 people taken last March for the Saskatoon StarPhoenix, Regina LeaderPost and CBC Saskatchewan may very well be the most extensive polling of the province in recent memory. The survey, with an accuracy of plus or minus 2.34 per cent SERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

No head office. Is that bad? I really like the way this province and my city are growing. Fast but not out-of-control. Frantic at times but not frenetic. But should the province ever aspire to grow to the point where we can claim a major resource, financial or cultural community? Probably not. It really doesn’t matter that Saskatchewan will be dropping its corporate tax rate to 10 per cent to match the rate in Alberta. Why? Well, its because that horse left the barn decades ago. I believe Saskatoon and Regina will eventually grow enough to be considered players in the higher minor leagues of business and industry, but they won’t hit the major league. Those titles were claimed by Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, London, Ottawa over a century ago and in more recent decades, as the west was won, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver joined the elite in terms of population, commerce, political and financial clout, at least in Canadian terms. We may rail against the injustice, but we actually brought it on ourselves when we insisted that smaller was better. And when we showed no desire to do anything of importance with our vast resource riches other than to ship them out, we sealed our corporate fate. Now we talk about forging a

Norm Park All Things Considered commercial culture. We beg and cajole international players to come here and set up shop. We bribe them with subsidies, or in some cases, threaten them if they don’t set up a significant shop here, but for the most part, it’s a non-starter. This province has the second largest sweet oil production pace in all of Canada yet no major oil company calls Saskatchewan home. In fact there are a couple of them headquartered in Calgary whose only oil assets are located in Saskatchewan, but they do their business suit activities out of Calgary and Edmonton because that is where it was determined the action would take place 70 years ago. Those who attempted to establish a base in Saskatchewan were soon persuaded to move out and over. So today, we have plenty of oilfield action, but most of it is being driven by Calgary or Houston brain trusts who provide direction and incentives to the field office teams assigned to Estevan, North Battleford or heaven forbid ... Weyburn or Swift Current. They ply up and down our highways with Alberta plated pickups and Albertalicensed equipment and Alberta-

19 times out of 20, covered every area from abortion to the economy to immigration to First Nations to gay marriages. From such a huge undertaking, one can expect many themes to emerge. But perhaps the most intriguing theme was that rural and urban people don’t often view things the same way. For example, in the section on crime and public safety, rural residents were more likely to think crime has increased (39 per cent) than urban residents (32 per cent) and rural residents were less likely to think crime has decreased (11 per cent) compared with urban folks (17 per cent). The reality is that crime has been decreasing everywhere with the possible exception of large urban centres like Regina and Saskatoon that remain in the top three in the nation in most crime reporting statistics. There is no doubt that rural Saskatchewan is safer, yet the residents don’t necessarily feel crime is going down. Similarly, rural folks are less satisfied with policing (79 per cent) than urban residents (86 per cent satisfied). Perhaps this is a reflection of reality, given that many small towns don’t have an RCMP station. In some other areas, rural Saskatchewan people were more optimistic than their urban cousins. More rural people (54 per cent) believe agribusiness can be trusted to protect the environment than urban people (49 per cent). And when asked whether home ownership is still attainable in Saskatchewan, rural residents were more positive (76 per cent) than urban residents (64 per cent). Of course, this might have something to do with the fact that rural housing prices are cheaper.

based employees who expect to “go home,” as soon as they have paid their dues in Saskatchewan’s minor leagues. Now we see one of our two symbols of corporate dominance on the agricultural side going the way of international sellouts with the gradual disappearance of the one-time giant Viterra (read Saskatchewan Wheat Pool all you oldtimers). We still have the Farm Credit Canada headquarters, but for how long? Yep, we took a stand when it came to establishing offices for potash, but ended up having to threaten and then subsidize their corporate presence because we couldn’t make an argument on business status alone. The big business, the huge bonuses, dividends and profits go elsewhere. Saskatchewan gets some well-paid jobs and we get to build big houses and drive big trucks. This province should still be able to attract a few major players based on merit, but it’s getting trickier by the year and it becomes downright self defeating as we continually nurture these field office attitudes and culture. We ain’t the big dawgs. We have the goods, but not the attitude, and you know, I’m thinking that might not be a bad thing, all things considered.

However, what emerged in the survey is confirmation that rural residents are generally further right-ofcentre in their views than urban residents. More rural residents thought that immigration levels were too high (34 per cent) than urban residents (25 per cent). And while 70 per cent of rural residents don’t believe First Nations pay enough taxes, only 59 per cent of urban residents felt the same way. And it was the moral issues questions in the University of Saskatchewan survey where we see some of the most pronounced differences between rural and urban residents. While 73 per cent of urban residents surveyed believed the federal government should continue to recognize gay marriages, only 57 per cent of rural people felt similarly. On re-instituting capital punishment, 65 per cent of rural people supported the notion compared with just 49 per cent of urban people. Sixty-four per cent of rural residents disagreed with decriminalizing marijuana compared with 55 per cent of urban residents. And while 74 per cent of urban residents said they believed abortion was a woman’s choice, only 64 per cent of rural residents felt that way. Of course, other issues factor in. Rural Saskatchewan residents are generally older, which also factors into the thinking. As well, let’s accept that some of the survey differences are relatively small. But the point is, rural residents do think slightly differently than urban folks. Or so the surveys tell us.

Letters to the Editor Leaving with a heavy heart Heritage fund The Editor, I recently retired from health care after working 40 years as a registered nurse, with over 30 of those years being at the Estevan Regional Nursing Home. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of my career, however it is with a sense of sadness that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaving ERNH under the dark cloud that is currently hanging over our nursing home and our caregivers. Our caregivers and inhouse supervisors are awesome, caring and compassionate people who work diligently and very hard with both residents and their family in making ERNH a safe and caring environment to call home.

In the past when one of our residents was turning 105 and could not have family present for her special day, it was her caregivers that stepped up and donated money to give her that that special day with roses, pictures and taking the extra time to make her â&#x20AC;&#x153;all prettyâ&#x20AC;? for her pictures. Resident couples who have had special anniversaries have also received a party due to caregivers monetary contributions. There are many more related stories such as this where caregivers go beyond what is expected of them. This is done from the heart, pure and simple. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not part of our job description.

When we work 12hour shifts, we spend many hours with our residents, sometimes more than with our own family, so of course we become very close to them. Hugs, hand-holding, words of comfort and encouragement, laughter, tears, teasing, grieving are all part of our care package. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy being a caregiver and it takes a special person. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard physically and emotionally. Our residents are also special, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our privileged duty to surround them with a loving and compassionate home. Stand tall my fellow workers and have pride in the good care you give to

Legion concerned about veterans The Editor, The fact that Canadian funeral directors are obliged to cover the costs of funerals for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most impoverished war veterans bears witness to the lack of recognition for the immeasurable debt of gratitude Canadians owe all veterans. During this time of remembrance, perhaps it is time to hold the Government of Canada accountable and revisit this issue, which has been of considerable importance for the Royal Canadian Legion for several years. In fact, during our dominion convention held in Winnipeg in 2010, the Royal Canadian Legion passed a resolution calling on the Minister of Veterans Affairs Canada to take any and all necessary action immediately to increase the Veterans Funeral and Burial Program services allowable from $3,600 to an equivalent level already established of $12,700 for the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Moreover, these funds should be made available, without complex eligibility requirements, to all those Veterans who have insufficient financial means. Complex eligibility requirements are contrary to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;need principlesâ&#x20AC;? enshrined in the Canadian Forces Military and Veter-

ans Re-Establishment and Compensation Act. Veterans were willing to give their lives for this country, honouring them properly in the last final act is the least the country can do for them. It is for these reasons that the Legion plays a fundamental role in ensuring all veterans receive the best access to life-long care, services and benefits including a dignified funeral.

the residents. Be proud to say you work at ERNH. You are good people. Remember â&#x20AC;&#x201D; be a ray of sunshine in this dark time. In concluding, I would like to remind Estevan and surrounding area to be generous in the present campaign that is raising funds for a new nursing home. It is so needed. The committee is working very hard towards this goal, please help them make it a reality. Remember, you and I could easily end up in a nursing home. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help build a new one. Linda Wysminity, A proud ERNH worker, now happily retired, Bienfait

Recycle This Paper

Therefore, we fully support the efforts of the funeral directors to see an increase in funding for veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; funeral services and we will continue to press the federal government on this issue.

a good step The Editor, The Green Party of Saskatchewan likes the Wall governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to propose a Heritage Fund for the province. This is long overdue for Saskatchewan. It is wasteful to take the revenue of non-renewable resources and use it for dayto-day government operations. Windfalls from potash and oil should be put in the Heritage Fund after our accumulated debt is eliminated. But there also needs to be a formula created for determining the royalty rates of natural resources in Saskatchewan. This formula needs to take interest rates and the inflation rate into consideration. It is irresponsible to say that Saskatchewan will never change its current royalty rate structure, but it is equally irresponsible to suggest that royalty rates

need to change without explaining how the structure should be changed. Any change to natural resource royalty rates needs to strike a balance between creating an environment for entrepreneurship and having enough resources to meet the social needs of Saskatchewan people. As the inflation rate rises in Saskatchewan, natural resource royalty rates should increase by a certain amount, and then remain locked in. And as interest rates in Canada fall, our provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s royalty rates should also be set to increase. This will allow the province to gain more revenue from our natural resources, regardless of the state of our economy. Yours sincerely, Victor Lau, Leader, Green Party of Saskatchewan

Thriller Night The Grade 8 class at Spruce Ridge School performed their annual dance rendition of Michael Jackson’s zombie classic Thriller. Two performances were completed with each Grade 8 class spinning to the iconic dance.

Sentence handed down for sex assault The judge came to a decision Monday in a sexual assault case, sending a Macoun man to jail for 14 months. Johnathon Rosso had previously pleaded guilty to sexual interference, which involved the touching of a young girl. The incident occurred in July 2010, but didn’t come to light until earlier this year. During the sentencing hearing in October,

the Crown prosecutor argued for a jail term of 18 months, while Rosso’s defence counsel made the case for a conditional sentence that Rosso could serve in the community. Judge Karl Bazin read from his written decision in Estevan provincial court on Nov. 5, calling for the jail term followed by two years of probation. “This crime involves a sexual assault that in-

12112DS02

volved inappropriate touching,” said Bazin, who noted the assault occurred over two days and ended at that point. “The (victim) had suffered and continues to have adverse effects on her as a result of the assault.” A publication ban protects the identity of the victim. It had been brought up at the sentencing hearing that Rosso partially blames the vic-

tim, and Bazin addressed that with Rosso, making it clear he knew where blame was to be placed. “Mr. Rosso, by your assault on (the victim) you have brought pain and hardship to (the victim) as well as to all of your family,” said Bazin. “You have lost the trust of your family, and they suffer emotionally and financially because of your actions. I want to

make it clear to you that these consequences are the result of your actions, not (the victims).” Rosso is the primary breadwinner for his family, and concerns of him spending time in jail were brought up by his defence, noting he would not be able to support them during that time. Rosso must also submit a DNA sample and will be registered in the

National Sex Offender Registry. In other court proceedings, sentencing dates were scheduled for Mark Davis and Ronald Himmelspeck on Jan. 22, 2013. They, along with several other co-accused were charged for an incident from May 2011 and previously pleaded guilty to charges of forcible confinement and assault causing bodily harm.

Long gun records to be destroyed Souris-Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki has announced that as of Oct. 31, 2012, the long-gun registry, with the exception of registry information related to Quebec, has been destroyed. “The deletion of the long-gun registry records marks a major achievement towards this government’s commitment to end the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry,” said Komarnicki. “For 17 years, Conservatives have been committed to ending the long-gun registry, and this was one of our first priorities when we won our majority government last year.” In a press release Komarnicki said that law-abiding farmers, hunters and other gun owners will no longer be

unfairly targeted. “Our government will continue to focus its efforts on effective measures to tackle real crime and protect families and communities.” He added the deletion of data in the registry related to long-guns follows the Royal Assent of Bill C-19, the Ending of the Long-Gun Registry Act, on April 5, 2012. “Our government is making our streets and communities safer by targeting real criminals, not law-abiding Canadians. Make no mistake, the tax and spend NDP will not hesitate to bring back the long-gun registry if they are ever given the chance to form government. Now that this data has been deleted, it can never be recovered, not even by Thomas Mulcair.”

Who has the saddest moustache in the world? This guy Everyone has their reasons to grow a mo in Movember. It may be in honour of a family member or to support a friend; perhaps they want to raise money for cancer research. My reason to grow a moustache this month: complete and total curiosity. Sure I think all those other reasons are great, but I am totally curious to see what might happen if I actually don’t shave my upper lip for a month. I am hesitant to say if I don’t shave my “moustache” for a month because I am fairly certain that whatever is left after a month will not resemble an actual moustache. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t grow a decent moustache to save my life. In fact I have given up on facial hair entirely. It’s not a family thing. My dad can grow a beard

by holding his breath and farting (I’ve actually seen him do it). Me? I get weird patches of hair on the lower portion of my cheeks and along my jaw line. None of it is uniform and could ever be mistaken for a beard of any sort. I can’t even grow one of the chinstrap type beards that some of the douchier members of our society are fond of. My chin is weird too. I get patches on the side but nothing on the front. It kind of looks like a horseshoe. I actually got brave once and decided to try a goatee. It was a horrible disaster and I am happy there are no pictures of it. The only place where I can grow a decent amount of hair is one is on my throat area. Unfortunately the throatee went out with Sanford and Son. I’m not really sure I wanted to try the Redd Foxx look anyway. I’ve never even tried

Chad Saxon These Things I Think to waste my time growing a moustache before, really, there was no point to it. A couple of years ago I was in the hospital and didn’t shave for something like 12 days. I had a small patch of microscopic hairs on each side of my nose but nothing in the area directly underneath. I’m not gonna lie, it’s odd looking. Even though I am certain that by the end of November I will look even goofier than normal, in the interest of science I am willing to subject my upper lip to the great Mo experiment of 2012. The Estevan Mercury

actually has a Movember team which you can contribute to if you were so inclined. Apparently we have three other members — reporter Jordan Baker, general manager Brant Kersey and sales manager Cindy Beaulieu. Ya, I’m not exactly sure what she’s doing there either but she might be able to grow a better moustache than me. I thought sports editor Josh Lewis might join the team, but we can’t tell if he’s started shaving yet. The Mercury team is called Team Estevan and if you want to contribute to

our team please do. This is the link: ca.movember.com I haven’t signed up personally just because I don’t want to tarnish our team with whatever sprouts up this month so please just donate to the Estevan Mercury or the team as whole. If you don’t want to donate to us, please throw some money towards anyone else you may know who is participating this month. It all goes to a great cause. •••••• The hits just keep on coming for the NHL. Their latest single, sure to be a smash hit with fans, is cancelling the Winter Classic, the one event that actually got them some attention in the United States. As a hockey fan, this news pisses me off on so many levels. It is truly a great event, no matter which teams are playing.

It’s a celebration of the sport and something that so many people look forward to each year. It was also very important to the Michigan economy, which, as you have likely heard, isn’t exactly in great shape right now. This event alone would have pumped millions into the state. I wonder if these clowns — I’ve moved passed the point of who is to blame, I think they are all clowns — realize the impact they are having on the sport, the people that would have benefited from the Winter Classic or the thousands of people whose jobs rely on the games taking place. Apparently the two sides were to meet Tuesday and there was some optimism that they might get closer to making a deal. Sad part is I’m not sure the majority of hockey fans care.

Estevan Mercury

Few Halloween pranksters, but police kept busy It was a quiet Halloween in the Energy City in terms of mischief and vandalism incidents according to information provided by the Estevan Police Service (EPS) Nov. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was only one complaint regarding an egging incident and one other complaint of fireworks being set off,â&#x20AC;? said the EPS report. On the adult side of the event though, there were incidents that did require more extensive involvement by police such as a patron in a local lounge refusing to leave when asked to do

so by management. When police arrived, they found lounge staff holding down an intoxicated man who was then arrested and lodged in cells until sober. A two vehicle accident at the Perkins and Fourth Avenue intersection left one driver with minor injuries. The person was treated on the scene by emergency medical attendants and then released. One vehicle had to be towed from the scene and police note that the matter remains under investigation with charges pending. Police were next called

to a residence in the central part of the city to speak to an intoxicated man who, it turned out, had been released by the court only under several conditions which he had breached. He was lodged in cells and charged with trespassing as well as for being in contravention of the court-ordered conditions. Two men were charged with fleeing from police and being intoxicated in public when police encountered a group of men near a central area business on the night of Oct. 31. The two who fled the scene on foot were the

Further checks revealed the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real identity and he was charged with driving without a valid licence as well as for obstruction and driving while suspended. He now has a December court date. A domestic disturbance on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s south side on Nov. 2 required police attention with the matter being resolved with some mediation.

the incident. Police investigated a report of a broken truck window on the night of Nov. 2. A suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name was provided to police who followed up and eventually laid charges against a person who now has a Dec. 17 court date. A significant volume of alcohol was seized and dumped by police during the weekend as EPS members encountered several instances of people drinking in public. An erratic driver was warned about his actions that same night in an area near 13th Avenue and King Street. A fight that broke out near a convenience store resulted in one man being arrested and lodged in cells until sober. He was also charged with being intoxicated in public and has a Dec. 17 court appointment. Shortly after intervening in that fight, police were called back to the same location to deal with another intoxicated man. He was found passed out in a snowbank. He was arrested and charged with being intoxicated in public and will also appear in court Dec. 17. A barking dog complaint was handled by police on the night of Nov. 2. An occupant in a residence in the central part of the city was spoken to about the incident by police who noticed the owner taking the dog inside as they arrived. While on patrol near a local lounge, police spotted an extremely intoxicated man near the rear of the building. He was arrested and charged for public intoxication. They then located an intoxicated woman who had passed out in the lobby of a local hotel. She was taken to her home and released into the care of a sober friend. The next call involved another person passed out in a hotel lobby. This time it was a man who was taken into custody and lodged in cells overnight for his own safety. EPS members next located a vehicle travelling on a back road near the city limits. A check on the vehicle indicated that the driver had been prohibited from operating a vehicle so he was charged and the vehicle was seized for a minimum of 30 days. He now has a Dec. 3 court date scheduled. A domestic disturbance on the south side of the city required police intervention on the night of Nov. 2. The alcohol fuelled matter was resolved with a little police mediation. On the night of Nov. 3, police were asked to check into a suspicious person near 13th Avenue and Second Street. When police made the check of the individual they discerned that everything was fine and no further action was required. A motorist hauling a trailer without proper tail lights was reported to police by another driver who had almost hit the rear end, not realizing that the vehicle was hauling a trailer behind it.The driver of the offending vehicle was located and stopped near the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge and it was noted that the trailer lights must have stopped functioning sometime during the trip into Estevan. A party in the Trojan area of the city on Nov. 3 required police attention when a noise complaint was registered with them. The host of the event was first warned,

but when it was noted that the noise had not subsided and some fights had broken out, police ended up charging the host under the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noise bylaw while shutting down the party. The host now has a Dec. 3 court date. Another noisy party complaint led to a police visit on the north side of the city that same night. This matter was resolved with a warning. After observing some suspicious activity behind a local lounge on the night of Nov. 3, EPS ended up charging one 20-year-old man for being in possession of a controlled substance (marijuana). He now has a Dec. 17 court date. A report of a 15-yearold female going missing from her residence prompted police action on Nov. 3. They found her in a vehicle they stopped a short time after receiving the call. She returned to her parental home and the incident was referred to Social Services for possible review. EPS were called to a local night club to deal with a person who had been banned from the establishment earlier. The man left without further incident. Police arrested and charged a 26-year-old man for impaired driving and driving while his bloodalcohol level was above .08 per cent on the night of Nov. 3. Police had observed the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s erratic driving which led to the traffic stop. Police were called to a fight at a local lounge on the night of Nov. 3. One of the combatants had left prior to police arrival while the other who had stayed at the site, it was noted, had outstanding warrants for his arrest issued by the Regina Police Service. EPS members saw that the man was intoxicated, so he was arrested and charged for public intoxication, released after gaining sobriety and with new court dates set for him in Regina. Another extremely intoxicated man was found in the parking lot outside a local lounge that same night. He was lodged in cells for his own safety and charged for being intoxicated in public. Two people who had engaged in a fight at a local convenience store were sent on their separate ways by police who were called to intervene in the matter. No further action was required. A report of an intoxicated man settling into the lobby of a hotel was handled by police who arrested the man and charged him for being intoxicated in public. Police then received a report of a man operating a business vehicle while impaired. When police located the vehicle, they administered a roadside screening test and issued the man a 24-hour licence suspension while seizing the vehicle. On the night of Nov. 4, police received a call regarding suspicious activity near a condominium that was under construction. When they arrived, they discovered that the activity was simply one of the owners doing some work on the building. A domestic disturbance in the Pleasantdale area of the city required police attention on the night of Nov. 4. One of the subjects agreed to stay with a friend for the duration of the evening and was therefore transported to another address, which helped resolve the alcohol induced event.

The Estevan Comprehensive School played host to Challenge Day from Oct. 29 to Oct. 31. Challenge Day leader Gina Pernini is shown surrounded by Grade 9 students and adults from the community as she gave her final message to the group at the end of the day.

Estevan students become the change Randy Fortes asks the groups sitting in circles around the gymnasium to put their knees together and instantly everyone gets a little closer. Fortes is one of two Challenge Day leaders who ran Grade 9 students as well as adults from around the community through his organization’s program this past week at the Estevan Comprehensive School. From Oct. 29 to Oct. 31 in Estevan and Nov. 1 in Lampman, students experienced what it means to be the change, as the program encourages students to share their stories so their peers can see how life is different for everyone. Fortes was in Estevan last March when Challenge Day was first introduced to the school. He returned with fellow Challenge Day leader Gina Pernini last week. “It’s amazing. I love coming back to a school,” said Fortes after last Monday’s session. “(The students) came in pretty anxious and there was a lot of resistance in the beginning, but once they get that we are actually really here for them, that it’s about them and we really do care. As soon as we get past that everybody is fully involved.” He said it’s typical for the students to be shy or perhaps intimidated at the start of the day because Challenge Day turns many social norms on their head. “What we’re doing here is going against the grain of what normal culture is. We’re talking about being real,” said Fortes. “We’re talking about getting beyond the image, (because) in high school that’s the thing. You have to find your clique, find your group and uphold the image of who people stamped you to be or who you are as a jock or a cheerleader, like you fit into these little boxes. We’re actually asking them to step out of that and be real.” Moira Grayson, an ECS teacher, participated in the event on Monday and said it’s always interesting to see students evolve over the course of the day. “Friends are really clinging together (at the start), and then gradually throughout the day they tend to get more relaxed and start to have some fun and also start to open up a little bit,” she said. “By the end of the day, everyone has experienced what it’s like to be the other people in the room and have an understanding of why they feel the way they do.” The message Fortes hopes students will cling to is the organization’s slogan,

Be the Change. “It’s about not standing there and just waiting for someone else to do this for you,” he said. “It’s about saying, ‘no, I have the power to actually create change in the school and change in my life. All I have to do is step into it.’ It’s about empowering them and giving them permission to step into that power.” He said young people

may have something to say but may also feel that it isn’t their place to provide input. “Speak from your heart, speak what’s real and own your truth. Be you,” Fortes said of his advice for students. Grayson spoke to some of the adult volunteers from the community who came in for the day, and found they were surprised at how much

they got out of the program as well. “At the end of the day it was really nice to be able to thank them, because kids often think that the community doesn’t know about them and doesn’t really care about them, and this just proves that’s not true. There are so many adults willing to step up and be there for them.” At the end of the day

12112DS03

there are a lot of tears and a lot of hugs. The leaders ask all the participants to stand up, look around and give a hug to someone they have shared an experience with that day. It’s something Fortes still loves to see. “It’s rewarding for my heart,” he said. “To really be able put your heart into something and feel that reciprocated and get it back

from the students. When I see them step out of themselves and see them do something they may not usually do, like apologize or say thank you to someone that reminds me that the power of human beings is boundless.” The Challenge Day group from San Francisco will be back at ECS the next two years to include the next crop of Grade 9 students.

ty: education; engineering (site enhancements such signs, lighting, rumble strips and barricades); and enforcement. Starting this fall, rumble strips will be used in prioritized work zones. In addition, gates that narrow the approach to construction zones will be installed. Both devices are intended to slow traffic to 60 km/h in construction zones. The ministry will review the effectiveness of these devices and develop

guidelines for their use at other locations starting in the 2013 construction season. Fines in the Orange Zone will: â&#x20AC;˘ Now see a base fine of $210, which is triple the base fine for speeding; â&#x20AC;˘ See a per kilometre increase from $2 to $3 for every kilometre per hour over 60 km/h, for speeds up to up to 90 km/h; and â&#x20AC;˘ See a further increase from $4 to $6 for every kilometre per hour

Wilson speaks on Redefining Success W. Brett Wilson Special to Glacier Media I grew up in Saskatchewan, and like many people, I have a huge soft spot for my homeland. I have a tremendous amount of pride in my roots, and great respect for the people who pioneered this part of the world. In a relatively short time, those determined settlers - including my great-grandparents helped turn the wild and rugged prairie into one of the greatest places to live on Earth. Part of what makes Western Canada so unique is the special breed of people who live here. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something about this place - this land - that has helped to shape a people that are solid to the core. My affection for the land is surpassed only by my affection for the people who live here, and what sets us apart is really what holds us together - a deep and enduring commitment to each other. Growing up in North Battleford, a small city just North of Saskatoon, I witnessed incredible displays of community spirit from a host of people, but most notably from my own parents. My father, Bill Wilson, is a classic Prairie gentleman. If a stranger were stranded with a flat tire, he was the guy who would pull over first to lend a hand. I once was with my dad when he backed up 1/4 mile on a very muddy road just to follow a neighbour lady driving in another direction because he was worried she might get stuck and need help. My mother was equally inspirational. As a social worker, she was always doing what she could to help out the community - from volunteering for causes related to her children to taking in foster kids to teaching parenting classes. For my mom, giving back was part of her DNA. This commitment to community is a wonderful part of my legacy, and probably yours. You may be reading this in Kamloops, Kipling, or Calgary, but my guess is that we share a similar belief: that the real measure of success is not just about hard work and big rewards. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about giving back and taking care of the people around us. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about our sense of community. As a city, Calgary has been shaped by corporate and community leaders whose collective dreams have taken it from a North West Mounted Police outpost to an international centre of excellence for energy. We owe many of our greatest assets such as world-class sports teams and facilities, dynamic arts and culture, and state-of-the-art health

care and education - to the individual visions and collective efforts of our community-minded citizens. One of my favorite examples of great combined effort comes from my hometown. When I started to become more focused on personal philanthropy a decade or so ago, I realized I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tyet done anything substantive to give back to my birthplace - North Battleford - so I organized large (to me) donations to the both the local United Way and the Battlefords Union Hospital. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to learn that my personal donation of $100,000 matched the United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire fundraising goal for that year. Until then, I also learned, the biggest single donation the United Way had ever received was $5,000. I was dumbfounded. I knew that people in the Battlefords had wealth, but obviously they had never been given a vision for building their city through creative philanthropy. I believed there was a fair amount of money sitting under some mattresses in that town. And it was time to shake of some of it loose. I asked the hospital CEO what else was on his wish list and the request for four new anesthesiology machines caught my eye. The hospital had four operating rooms with four old units on site, but at least one unit was down for repairs at any given time. I told the hospital that I would give $300,000 toward the new machines, but they had to match my donation by raising $300,000 themselves. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize then that the most the hospital had previously raised during one campaign was $100,000. The hospital accepted my plan, but wanted 12 months to raise the money. I thought for a few minutes and gave them three months. I can only imagine the nervous conversations that took place at BUH that day, but they called back the next morning and agreed to the three-month challenge. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dollar-for-Dollarâ&#x20AC;? campaign was on. It actually took less than three months for the city to meet - and exceed - their fundraising goal. They announced their victory on the local radio station at the

end of a very touching multi-day radiothon, and called me with the results: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brett, we have met your challenge - in fact we blew through it - and have raised $500,000!â&#x20AC;? I was so moved by the way the community had come together to support the hospital that there was little I could do but match them - dollar for dollar - and up my donation to $500,000. The $1 million total tally was an incredible boost for the city, but the bigger impact came in terms of community engagement. To say the city and its citizens surprised themselves would be an understatement. But North Battleford is not unique. There are hundreds of similar communities with innovative organizations addressing an assortment of similar issues and causes - and providing great opportunities for citizens to work with them to make our communities better places to live and do business. To me, the business value of philanthropy is obvious. Strong communities attract new business-

es, andqualityemployees, which in turn create an even stronger business climate. Employees want to live in communities with a strong economic and social fabric - places where they feel connected to one another and enjoy a great quality of life. Without question, communities with a strong economic base and a strong social fabric are the best places to live and work. As business guru Don Tapscott has said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Business cannot succeed in a world that is failing.â&#x20AC;? As one of the proud co-founders of Calgaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s FirstEnergy Capital Corp., Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the enormous impact one company can have on its community. It would be nearly impossible to measure the number of lives that have been dramatically improved by FirstEnergyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philanthropic work. In addition to donating more than $10 million to more than 500 community agencies over the past almost 20 years, FirstEnergy has raised millions for the victims of the 1997 Manitoba flood,

the Quebec ice storm in 1998, the Alberta drought in 2002, and the Slave Lake disaster in 2011. But the best corporate philanthropy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just make a social impact - it also adds to a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line. FirstEnergy didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set out to be a leader in corporate philanthropy. We did set out to be a leader in investment banking. And we used charitable giving as a marketing tool. Every time we gave a contribution to a charity, we were very open about the fact that we expected something in return.What we gained in the form of public recognition, co-branding with larger companies, or recognition within the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s network helped us to dramatically increase our profile, develop new partnerships, and grow our client base. That is the kind of return on investment corporate philanthropy should expect to achieve. In my world, giving and getting defi nitely go together, but philanthropic giving can be more rewarding than you might expect. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m quite candid about the fact that when I first started my career 30 years ago, my goal was simple: I wanted to make money - and lots of it. I wanted success, the big house, and a few nice toys in the garage. What I soon learned was that financial success can become surprisingly hollow. Ironically, philanthropic pursuits produce a much more satisfying return. So after spending many years focused on making money, I now spend as much - if not more - of my energy

giving it away. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I am constantly challenging people to think carefully about how we measure success. Earlier this year, the first World Happiness Report was released. It attempted to measure social and economic well being around the world. Canada placed fifth. It came as a surprise to some people, but not to me, that a nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happiness is not necessarily tied to its economy, but has more to do with things like personal freedom and strong social networks. Just like the people who settled our communities decades ago, we are wired to connect with and care for one another. If we stop measuring success based on material wealth, and start measuring it in terms of things we really value - like our relationships with family and friends, and the quality of our communities, then we all might start to feel richer than we thought possible. To me, the real bottom line is not about how much we get, but how much we are privileged to invest in others. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I have redefined success. Business, entrepreneur and philanthropist Brett Wilson is publishing a new book in November. Entitled Redefi ning Success: Still Making Mistakes it will in bookstores this month. Brett Wilson authored this column in partnership with Glacier Media Group, which has extensive holdings in community media and business-to-business media across Canada.

Bruins earn wild shootout win Last-second Paslawski goal ties game after third period collapse The CanElson Drilling Estevan Bruins survived a bizarre incident involving their starting goalie and a third period meltdown to earn two points in a roller coaster affair on Saturday. Nick Weiss scored the shootout winner to give the Bruins a 5-4 victory over the Nipawin Hawks. The Bruins led 3-0 after two periods, but an incident at the start of the third period helped turn the tides and almost saw them walk away with nothing. Nipawin surged to a 4-3 lead and would have completed the comeback if not for Bruins forward Tyler Paslawski scoring the tying goal shorthanded with three seconds left in regulation. The drama began as players from both teams were getting loosened up before the third period. It ended with Hawks forward Tad Kozun in the penalty box and Bruins goalie Curtis Martinu out of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I skated to centre ice. I do my ritual and get myself in the zone there,â&#x20AC;? said Martinu. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I was standing there, I could see (Kozun) coming in at decent speed and he just started whacking the back of my legs. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be known as a hothead, but if you start getting under my skin, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to stick up for myself, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what I did.â&#x20AC;? Martinu, who was facing away from Kozun, responded by jabbing his stick backward and catching Kozun with a butt end. Kozun was given a twominute penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, while Martinu received a five-minute match penalty and a game misconduct. Both players were suspended for three games on Monday. Bruins head coach

Estevan Bruins winger Tanner Froese flicks a backhand shot over Nipawin Hawks goalie Davis Jones during the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 5-4 shootout win on Saturday. Keith Cassidy said he felt Kozunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions were part of a tactic by the Hawks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That set the tone for the whole period. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gimmicky way to do things. It was done on purpose and they ended up getting the situation that they wanted. They got themselves in the game,â&#x20AC;? he said. Rookie backup Travis Pelletier, seeing his first action since the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season opener on Sept. 20, came in for the third period and struggled, surrendering four goals in about six minutes, two of them coming on the power play. Dustin Skilliter scored Nipawinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first goal at 3:51, taking a pass from Yan Kalashnikov and firing it home from the slot. Less than three minutes later, Jeff Datoff scored on a point shot to get the Hawks within a goal. Dexter Bricker tied the game midway through the

period, tipping a Datoff shot past Pelletier. Wheaton King then put Nipawin on top only 14 seconds later. Although Pelletier allowed four goals on 12 shots, Cassidy said he did well to shut the door after that and give the Bruins a chance to tie it up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer to have a few of those back, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure, but he settled down and got his mind into it and played pretty well after that.â&#x20AC;? That paid off later, when Paslawski jammed the puck past Nipawin goalie Davis Jones on a mad scramble in front of the net with three seconds left. Defenceman Tyler Poskus kept the puck in at the blue line and fired a shot on net, which left Paslawski, Nick Weiss and Darcy DeRoose to hack away at a loose puck in the crease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think DeRoose got the final chop there and it

landed on Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hip and I chopped it in from there,â&#x20AC;? said Paslawski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for us, because it reaffirms that you never quit on anything,â&#x20AC;? Cassidy said of the tying goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything can happen. There were three seconds left and we were rewarded for some hard work.â&#x20AC;? After a scoreless overtime, the game went to a shootout. Estevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Austin Yano and Nipawinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jesse Bernard traded goals. Weiss scored the winner, flicking a backhand into the top of the net. Earlier in the game, the Bruins controlled the first two periods and built a 3-0 lead. DeRoose scored his fifth goal in as many games seven minutes into the opening period on a pass from linemate Hudson Morrison. The Bruins added a pair of highlight reel goals in the second period.

The first came at the 16-minute mark when Wyatt Garagan was hauled down on a breakaway and was awarded a penalty shot. He waited until the last second and then roofed a backhander over Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He almost skated himself out of room, but managed to find the last remaining spot top shelf and it certainly helped us,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. Before Tanner Froese made it 3-0 in the final minute of the period when he stole the puck at the blue line for a breakaway and lifted a backhander into the top right corner. The Bruins outshot the Hawks 41-27. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an emotional roller coaster, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the positive side of one of these things,â&#x20AC;? said Cassidy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the other way around a couple of times this year and our guys worked too damn

hard not to get the result that we had. It shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have even been a game.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, on Thursday, the Bruins struggled to a 6-1 loss against the Notre Dame Hounds in Wilcox. Ian Williams, Josh Bruha, Cory Anderson, Jared Martin, Sam Aulie and Catlin Foley scored for the Hounds. Morrison had the lone goal for the Bruins. On the injury front, forwards Calder Neufeld (high ankle sprain), Taylor Reich (ribs) and Matt Brykaliuk (shoulder), as well as goalie Steven Glass (knee) are still out, while centre Tyson Valette (shoulder) made his Bruins debut Saturday. Reich was a possibility to return last night against the Hounds. There is no timeline for Neufeld or Brykaliuk to return. Glass is expected to be back in about two weeks. The Bruins will host the Kindersley Klippers on Friday. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

Tae Kwon-Do on display at annual tournament T h e E s t e v a n Ta e Kwon-Do Club hosted its seventh annual tournament on Saturday at Estevan Comprehensive School. With patterns, sparring and power breaking on display, Estevan club instructor Wayne Brown said he was happy with how the proceedings went, despite entries being down slightly from past years. Just shy of 100 competitors made the trek for the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little less than we had hoped for, but weather and road conditions kind of impacted the ability of clubs from Saskatoon and Prince Albert to attend,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was diappointing, but at the same time, we were happy with 100.â&#x20AC;? Still, a club from Ozler and one from Saskatoon did show up, along with clubs from Weyburn and Lampman. A pair of instructors

from the northern clubs, Fern Giesbrecht and Chris MacIntosh, were given the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spirit of Tae Kwon-Do award. Brown said the award, which usually goes to one individual, was presented to the two â&#x20AC;&#x153;for making it through the roads and doing what they had to do to get there.â&#x20AC;? The day began with patterns demonstration, followed by hand and foot power breaking, which is usually the biggest attraction. The tournament finished up with the sparring portion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was smooth, there were no significant injuries and I thought the competitors represented their clubs well. Throughout the day, I saw different clubs making it to the top of the podium,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. He also thanked the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive and sponsors for making it possible to host the tournament.

George Kingdon captured first place in the black belt sparring competition Saturday after going undefeated in three matches.

Apex Bruins grab three of four points Although there was a sense of missed opportunity on Friday, the Estevan Apex Bruins emerged from the weekend with three points in two games. The midget AA club tied the Notre Dame Argos 4-4 on Friday and defeated the Regina Wild 5-1 on Saturday in South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League action. Both games were played at Spectra Place. The Bruins (4-2-4) sit in third place in the midget AA league, although the Notre Dame bantam Hounds are two points back with four games in hand. On Saturday, the Bruins scored three goals in the third period to take control of the game against

Bantam AA Bruins get two wins on weekend It was a big weekend for the Estevan TS&M Bruins, who picked up their second and third wins of the season. The bantam AA club has struggled to start the season, but they earned a pair of low-scoring wins, 3-1 against the Moose Jaw Warriors on Saturday and 4-1 against the Regina Monarchs on Sunday. In Regina on Sunday, the Bruins (3-6) got goals from four different players. Colton Winton opened the scoring at 4:31 of the first, with Matt Bill picking up the assist. Jayden Davis made it 2-0 at 17:19, only for Reginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brett Merk to get his team on the board with 1:18 to go in the period. The Bruins scored two more in the second though, giving themselves some insurance. Bill lit the lamp at the 4:36 mark, and J.J. Holma made it 4-1 at 11:15. There was no scoring in the third period.

the Wild. Tanner Jeannot scored the only goal of the first period, coming at the 9:13 mark. The Wild knotted the score early in the second period on a Christopher Belanger goal only 48 seconds in. The score remained tied until Jeannotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second of the game at 16:24 restored the Bruinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a close game,â&#x20AC;? said Bruins head coach Dalton Giblett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right off the bat, Regina was pretty quick, they took the body and we were fl at-footed. Once we woke up, it was a pretty good game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the game went on, we started to dominate more and more.â&#x20AC;? That manifested itself in the third period, beginning with Tyson Priceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal only 13 seconds in. Mason Benning gave the Bruins a three-goal lead at the 4:44 mark, and Kaelan Holtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal midway through the period rounded out the scoring. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game was a different matter, as the Bruins needed a late third period surge to salvage a tie against the Argos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting into a habit of only playing 1520 minutes a game and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s causing this. At least we were able to capitalize (at the end of the game), because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the other issue that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re leaving too many goals out there. We gotta bear down and bury them,â&#x20AC;? said Giblett. The Bruins had the only goal of the opening frame, courtesy of Dylan Lay at the 8:36 mark.

Chargers lose twice; Bulldogs tie The Estevan Power Dodge Chargers came back down to earth a bit on the weekend, losing their first two games of the season in the South Saskatchewan Female Hockey League. The bantam A team is now 4-2 after losing 7-5 to the Wood River Ice Cats on Saturday and 2-1 to the Moose Jaw Warriors on Sunday. On Sunday in Moose Jaw, the Chargersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lone goal was scored by Kailey McLellan, with Megan LeBlanc earning an assist. Tamara Irwin stopped 29 of 31 shots for the Chargers, who managed only 14 shots of their own. On Saturday at home, LeBlanc led the Char-

The Argos got two goals from Kaden Hintz in the second period to take the lead. His first goal came at the 7:16 mark and the other came with 3:50 left in the period. Notre Dame increased its lead to 3-1 in the third period on a goal by Montana Giesbrecht at 7:33. The Bruins responded with a goal by Jason Hengen about five minutes later, but Josh Woodrow scored for the Argos with 4:10 to play to put them ahead by two again. That was when Price stepped up for Estevan. He got the team within a goal with 1:18 left in the game and 47 seconds later he tied the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tysonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been huge. We expect that from him every game,â&#x20AC;? said Giblett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tysonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shooter and the more chances he gets, the better off we are. We expect Tyson to score. We just gotta makes sure he gets his chances and stays out of the penalty box.â&#x20AC;? Giblett added that the Bruins should have had the game in hand by then. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty good to be still fighting, but we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been in that predicament to begin with. We started off good for the first 10 minutes, but then we kinda went to sleep. We had to battle back the last two or three minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty competitive and even, and if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to work, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to win. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what happened Friday night.â&#x20AC;? The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next regular season game is Nov. 16 when they visit the Notre Dame Hounds.

gers with a hat trick, and Mariah McKersie added two goals. Saige Monteyne was in net for the first two periods before giving way to Irwin. The shots were 28-27 for Wood River. The Estevan Dayman Trucking Bulldogs also played two games on the weekend. They tied the Ice Cats 4-4 on Friday at the Civic and also hosted the Fort Quâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Appelle Flyers on Sunday. The score from that game was not available at press time. On Friday, the Bulldogs and Ice Cats traded goals throughout the game. Jenna Grube opened the scoring at 4:34 of the first period, but Merissa Zerr replied for the Ice Cats three minutes later. Lacy Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power play goal at 13:37 gave the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes. Grube scored her second of the game on a power play early in the second, followed by a Delaney Aikens goal for Wood River at the 4:36 mark. Julia Sibley put the Bulldogs ahead 4-2 three minutes later, but the visitors got that one back at the 11:10 mark on Zerrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second goal. With the Ice Cats trailing by a goal entering the third period, Hailey Eger tied it up three minutes in and that score would stand up as the final.

ECS boys make final at Yorkton tournament It has been an encouraging couple of weeks for the Estevan Comprehensive School senior boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; volleyball squad. One week after finishing fifth at a 16-team invitational in Moose Jaw, the Elecs were the runners-up at a tournament in Yorkton. The tournament held on the weekend, hosted by Yorkton Regional, featured 12 teams, including many of the provincial contenders from Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The Elecs posted a 4-1 record in round-robin action, defeating Kelvington, Moose Jaw Peacock, Yorkton Sacred Heart and Oxbow before losing to Prince Albert St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in straight sets in their final game. That gave them a second-place finish, pitting them against Weyburn in the quarter-final. The Elecs won that game in straight sets to advance to the semis, where they faced the juggernaut Yorkton Regional Raiders. After losing the first set, the Elecs came back and

The Elecsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opponents in the tournament final were too much for them though, as the Central Cyclones, ranked first in the province, won in straight sets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keiron Gallipeau distributed the ball well on the

weekend, getting the ball to the power hitters, William Tabbernor and Austin Orsted, who led the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attack,â&#x20AC;? said Elecs head coach Nathan Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right side Kale Little and middle blocker Jolan Lingelbach also contributed significantly at the net, lead-

Bruins starting goalie Curtis Martinu and Hawks forward Tad Kozun were each suspended three games after a confrontation prior to the third period of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. While players were skating around before the start of the period, Kozun went over to Martinu at centre ice and slashed him in the back of the legs. Martinu, facing the other way, replied by jabbing his stick backward and hitting Kozun with a butt end. Kozun was given a two-minute penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct

On Saturday, the Elecs squared off against the other three first-place teams in the second round of the roundrobin. They split sets with Prince Albert Carlton and Swift Current and then lost in straight sets to Yorkton Regional, which set up a quarter-final match against Winnipeg Garden City. The 2011 Moose Jaw tournament champions narrowly defeated the Elecs, 26-24, 26-24, sending the Elecs home tied for fifth. Central defeated Winnipeg in the final. With their regular tournament season over, the Elecs now head to the 5A boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; south regional in Swift Current this weekend. Other teams competing in the southern regional are Yorkton Regional, Balgonie, Moose Jaw Central, Moose Jaw Peacock, Moose Jaw Vanier, Weyburn and Swift Current. Finishing in the top three would send the Elecs to the 5A provincial championship in North Battleford the following weekend.

general manager Keith Cassidy said Monday that the team had not decided which goalie to call up to back up Travis Pelletier for the next three games.

Junior midget Bruins lose, tie on homestand A four-goal second period carried the Regina Flames to a 6-3 victory over the Estevan Blue Rock junior midget Bruins on Sunday. The midget 15-year-old team also tied the Regina Capitals on Sunday, picking up one point in two home games. On Sunday at Spectra Place, the Bruins (2-3-1) got the only goal of the first period, courtesy of Jaden Monteyne at the 11:26 mark. The Flames took control in the second period though. Calder Dollard tied the game only 39 seconds into

the frame, and Reid Massier gave Regina the lead less than three minutes later with a power play goal. Massierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second of the game at 6:05 put the Flames ahead 3-1 and Dylan Moldovan extended that lead with a goal at the 11:06 mark. The Bruins had a better showing in the third period, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to overcome the deficit. Dayton Westerman got the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second goal at the 3:05 mark, but Dennen Blanchard got that one back for the Flames two minutes later. Cory Peloquin replied

The Bruins (6-0-2) are in second place in the Hockey Regina bantam Tier 2 division after emerging from the four-game stretch with two wins and two ties. The Bruins defeated the Regina Sabres 6-1 on Wednesday, beat the Regina Stars 5-3 on Saturday, tied Moose Jaw 2-2 on Saturday and tied the Stars 2-2 on Sunday. The two wins came on the road, with the ties coming at home. On Sunday, the Bruins overcame a 2-0 deficit to earn a point against the Stars. Andrew Belitski had the only goal of the first period for Regina, and Jordan Kazymyra made it 2-0 at 6:33 of the second. Brady Long finally got Estevan on the board at 14:26 of the second period.

Zack Miller was in goal for the Bruins. On Saturday, against the first-place Warriors (70-2), the Bruins again found themselves down by a goal entering the third period. After a scoreless first, Dawson Kurz drew first blood for Moose Jaw at 1:20 of the second period. Preston Brodziak tied the game for the Bruins midway through the period, but Jarid Morhart restored the visitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead with 1:38 remaining in the frame.

Club gearing up for southern playdowns The curling season is underway, and the Estevan Curling Club is preparing for several events this year while also maintaining its weekly leagues. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season began in late October. The highlight of this year â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule is the SaskTel southern menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playdowns, which are being held Jan. 17-20. Many of Saskatch-

ewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top curlers will be in Estevan that weekend for the event, which is the southern qualifier for the provincial Tankard. The playdowns feature a 16team field and send five teams to the provincial menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important to bring that level of curling into the community and into our club,â&#x20AC;? said ZiehlGrimsrud. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a very economical engine for the club to host these events and have people coming in from all over the southern part of the province.â&#x20AC;?

Bruins learn lesson in mental toughness One of the problems the Estevan Bruins have had in this young season is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fragile. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some tough losses in the early going, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve blown some leads late, and with still a relatively young group, that can take its toll mentally. Yo u n e e d m e n t a l toughness to overcome adversity, and on Saturday against the Nipawin Hawks, the Bruins had lots of it. It started before the third period when the Bruins lost their anchor, goalie Curtis Martinu, the man whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the steady backbone of this club all year. With him gone, and the Bruins relying on inexperienced rookie Travis Pelletier, the momentum changed quickly. Martinuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-minute match penalty didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help, and before long the Hawks were within a goal. Then, in the blink of an eye, they were ahead. It wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been easy to resign oneself to defeat after an emotional swing of events like that. And it certainly looked as if the Hawks had stolen the game with their third-period rally. Turns out the Bruins hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t given up on one point, or even two, after all. Even when they had to spend the end of the third period shorthanded. Ty l e r P a s l a w s k i â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clutch goal with three seconds left was one of several big ones heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scored over the last year, and the veteran right winger came through again with a classic garbage goal. After overtime came and went, there was still the shootout to deal with, and Pelletier, who was seeing his first game action in six weeks, hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly been reassuring in the third period. But he settled down, stopped two of three shoot-

Josh Lewis Hear Me Out ers and ensured that Nick Weissâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shootout goal stood up as the winner. That shootout performance will serve as a valuable confidence boost for Pelletier, who has now been called to take on the starterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job temporarily after Martinu was suspended for three games. Those three games are big ones, too, against division rivals Notre Dame (last night), Kindersley and Melville, so Pelletier needs to step up and play with some confidence after watching almost entirely from the bench so far this year. *** People often ask why Canadians are so interested in an American election. They often follow that up with, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you that interested in your own countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; election?â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a political junkie, so needless to say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glued to both elections. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fascinating exercise watching the way U.S. elections work, that is, if you can survive the excessive buildup and the primaries. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly a very long process, and you wonder how the candidates have the energy and voice to finish strong when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hitting three or four campaign stops a day all over the country. Of course, large swaths of the nation tend to be ignored in that criss-crossing tour, since the electoral college setup means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the swing states. Since all of each stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electoral college votes go to one candidate or the other, and not split between the two, why spend time campaigning in a state that has always voted one way or

the other? If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always leaned your way, then you likely donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to worry about their votes, and if they lean the other way, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably wasting your time trying to convince them to switch allegiances. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the American version of Western Canadian voters feeling left out of the process. Anyway, every media

outlet Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve paid any attention to is portraying it as a dead heat, with polls, for the most part, backing that up. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be that close. Barack Obama hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the kind of president people hoped he would be, but he certainly is no socialist and he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freedom away, or their guns away, or whatever other nonsense the Tea Party is spouting these days. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m generally a con-

servative, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d vote for Obama if I were an American citizen. I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get past Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lies and deception (and yes, Obama has done this as well, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not nearly as blatant). It blows me away how American politicians can get away with saying whatever the hell they want, no matter how untrue, without really being challenged by the media. There are two Ameri-

cas now, with two ideologies, and two sets of media. Truth, sadly, has been killed in action.

Remembrance Day

11.11.12

Special acts of remembrance on Sunday The service is familiar, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s importance has not waned. The annual Remembrance Day service will once again be staged in the Estevan Comprehensive School Cafetorium this coming Sunday morning, Nov. 11 with a cenotaph service and ceremony to

follow immediately after in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s courtyard. The annual tribute to fallen veterans of the First and Second World Wars, Korean Conflict and other wars, will begin at 10:45 with the roll call of honour occurring at the 11th hour of this 11th day of the 11th month, the time to remem-

ber those who provided the ultimate sacrifice for democracy and freedom. As has been the situation for the past three years, the Estevan branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has decided to provide a video and audio presentation featuring images of veterans rather than engage a guest

speaker for the occasion. The service itself will follow the traditional order including the advancing of the colours, prayer of exhortation, the playing of the Last Post and Reveille and the reading of the roll of honour. Following the Act of Remembrance, hymns ac-

5HPHPEHULQJ 2XU 9HWHUDQV

companied by members of the Estevan Comprehensive School band and the presentation, the colours will be removed to the courtyard for the cenotaph service. Bagpipers and drummers from the Estevan (Elks) PPCLI Army Cadets will be part of the service and army cadets

along with cadets from the Wylie-Mitchell Air Cadet Squadron will form an honour guard at the cenotaph where the wreaths of remembrance will be laid as the names of representatives are called. The service will be concluded with a closing prayer.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winter wheat quality was good and yields were approximately 40 to 65 bushels per acre with a lot more acres.â&#x20AC;? B10

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Shannon Friesen, crop specialist

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a good crop year on the southeast prairies by Norm Park of The Mercury There were no crop yield records set in southeast Saskatchewan this year, but the overall opinion from producers and crop specialists is that this was a pretty decent year when all things are considered. There is no doubt the farming production rate is much higher this year compared with last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disastrous field flooding conditions that dominated the local landscapes. Balance was brought back this year according to information supplied by the Saskatchewan Ag-

riculture Ministry and their crop specialists like Shannon Friesen who focuses her efforts on the southeast sector. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yields were average for red spring wheat, anywhere from 30 bushels to the acre on the low end to as high as 60 on the high side,â&#x20AC;? Friesen said. Some near record production records were seen on the winter wheat side in terms of acres sown to that crop, mainly due to the 2011 wet weather. The choices were limited last year, and winter wheat was one of the few solutions that surfaced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winter wheat quality was good and yields were

approximately 40 to 65 bushels per acre with a lot more acres,â&#x20AC;? Friesen said. On the canola front, it was not a totally positive story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going into harvest, a lot of the canola crops looked fantastic, but the results were only modest or average. Some came in with only a few bushels per acre, others got to 25 to 30. Timing was big here, the earlier seeded crops didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do as well thanks to the mid-season heat and dry weather,â&#x20AC;? Friesen said. On the exact opposite end of that scope were soybeans. The few farmers who tried them this

year must have been pretty happy with the results because soybeans thrive in the heat and dryer conditions once they get off to a good start. In some instances the yield was between 30 and 50 bushels to the acre, said Friesen. Although there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of fields holding soybeans this year, they are definitely an alternative for producers to consider in the future, along with lentils and flax. In fact, lentil production was decent this year while flax came in at pretty average rates. Marketing has become more interesting on the wheat and barley

side due to the departure of the Canadian Wheat Board and its single desk marketing monopoly. The younger producers are adjusting to the newer marketing regime while older farmers are just now starting to move with the changes. Grain car availability is becoming an issue though. As far as moisture conditions are concerned, Friesen said â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dry heading into winter, but recent bouts of moisture, you know, a little rain, drizzles, snow, sleet certainly helps,â&#x20AC;? she said, especially when it arrives before the hard freeze. Some crops were hit

with diseases this year along with heat, hail and wind damages. Canola crops were hit by sclerotinia and aster yellows and others picked up fusarium. This could lead to some farmers deciding to extend their crop rotations over a four-year program which might reduce exposure plus the careful use of fungicides will also reduce disease damage. The big things farmers have to watch for now is grain spoilage in storage. Friesen said she and other agrologists remind producers to keep aerating their grain while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the bin to reduce spoilage prior to shipping.

Added protection for late Chamber to host employment workshop night workers Much has been made about recruiting employees. How about keeping them? The Estevan Chamber of Commerce will be focusing on that issue during a recruitment and retention workshop at the Evergreen Room in the Days Inn on Nov. 21 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. In a release from the chamber, it was noted that recruitment and retention are the two top issues facing local employers today. Finding good employees is difficult enough. But, what are you going to do to keep them once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got them? In the workshop, certified human resources professional Dave Hagel

will examine the employment life cycle and provide employers with a number of strategies and tactics in each step of the cycle on how they can retain em-

ployees and build strong employee morale. Hagel, a certified human resources professional, draws on his 30 years of experience in union and union-free private sector businesses across Canada to conceive and deliver value-added outcomes

that maximize employee productivity and achieve business results. Hagel teaches the National Knowledge Exam (NKE) preparation workshop for the CHRP designation exam and is a certified accelerated learning practitioner, the only person in Canada to hold this designation. Course costs are $25 plus GST. Attendees will leave the course with material that can be readily used and will be able to use the principals in the hiring process.

The provincial government has moved to improve safety conditions for those who work late hours jobs in Saskatchewan. Labour Minister Don McMorris announced during the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour conference Saturday that Bill 23, which enhances and clarifies current Occupational Health and Safety legislation, will be proclaimed to come into force on Nov. 7. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This legislation puts the safety of working people first, while ensuring Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy continues to grow,â&#x20AC;? Morgan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve established ways to better engage employers in creating safe workplaces; we have enhanced appeal processes and further empowered Occupational Health Officers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need clear, consistent and easy to understand laws to assist in efforts to reduce Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unacceptably high injury rate, while creating an environment that helps attract business and skilled workers to Saskatchewan, supporting Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Plan for Growth.â&#x20AC;? The proclamation will not include the requirement to designate a prime con-

tractor in certain sectors or increases to proposed fines related to OHS prosecution. These matters have been further considered during the current review of labour legislation and will be addressed with the introduction of the Saskatchewan Employment Act which is to be tabled later this fall. Morgan also announced new regulations to better protect late-night retail workers from violence in the workplace. The new regulations for late-night retail premises include safe cash handling procedures, use of video cameras, and the provision of good visibility and signage for all latenight retail premises. In addition, the regulations will require a check-in system and personal emergency transmitters to be provided to all workers working alone in late-night retail establishments. The Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety will conduct a series of information sessions across the province to educate employers, workers and stakeholders on the new legislation. The opposition NDP

was happy with the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement which included some of the provisions they had been pushing for in Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law, a private memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill that was introduced by David Forbes. In a press release the NDP said that although the new bill falls short of measures proposed by Forbes in his Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law bill, Forbes said that the positive step forward will be a welcome change for workers and their families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Working the night shift at a gas station or convenience store comes with increased risk. When I visited workers on the night shift, what I heard is that they felt anxious. They know about those sad cases where an employee has become a victim,â&#x20AC;? said Forbes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Democrats feel strongly that victims like Jimmy Wiebe deserved better protection, and all steps to increase security and workplace safety are welcome.â&#x20AC;? Jimmy Wiebe, the namesake of Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law, was shot and killed in a robbery while working the graveyard shift at a gas station in Yorkton in June 2011.

ECS weekly report Submitted by Brooke Pachal, Emily Hegland and AnnaRae Gustafson The past few weeks have been incredibly busy, but highly rewarding for the Estevan Comprehensive Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Student Representative Council (SRC). Their first undertaking was to host a school-wide pep rally in late October. In previous years the pep rallies had lacked some pep, due to some disorganization and a lack of student involvement. Before this rally, the SRC handed out candy and thunder sticks as well as taking time to teach the students two cheers they had learned at a recent leadership conference they had attended. Engaging the students helped this pep rally to succeed. The assembly included introductions of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports teams and clubs, a performance by the ECS Stomp musical group as well as two

student-produced videos and a game of Minute To Win It. After the rally, teachers who have been a part of the school for more than 10 years, informed the SRC and teacher representative that this had been the best pep rally they had ever seen. Another event that took place recently was the SRCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Haunted House. At the beginning of the semester, the student representatives met and agreed upon goals. One of those goals was to bring the community into the school. The students felt the Haunted House would be a great way to open the school up to students of all ages and their parents. The event was held on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 1 to 4 p.m. The SRC, along with student volunteers, spent Friday night hanging ghosts in the room, taping black paper and backdrops on the walls and

building a maze in the drama room. The Haunted House included a potions laboratory, a mad doctor, fortune teller and the Hallway of Doom, all leading to the maze which concluded the adventure. Staff, students and members of the community who attended enjoyed the three-hour event. In turn, the SRC said they thank everyone for their support and feedback, and hope to see these familiar faces at future events. The school then hosted another Challenge Days series from Oct. 29 to 31. Each day a group of students entered into a day of activities that opened their eyes to the struggles and victories of their classmates. The experience is sure to change the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment once again. Finally, the school dance will be held Nov. 8. The theme of Vegas was voted on and chosen by the students at the recent pep rally.

Outram-Madigan 4-H news Submitted by Tess Brokenshire Club Reporter Fall is the time we celebrate a successful harvest and give thanks for all that we have, including 4-H. On October 20, the Outram-Madigan 4-H Club hosted an old fashioned barn dance at Wayne and Connie Brokenshiresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; farm. We invited other 4-H members and their families from our area. The fun started with a little bit of hard work first. We had to clean out the barn, haul in some fresh straw bales, add

some lights hanging from the ceiling, tables, chairs, and of course, autumn decorations such as pumpkins and gourds. No fire in the barn, so battery operated tea lights were added to centrepieces and carved pumpkins everywhere. It was beautiful! We are thankful to Derrell and Sheron Sears who accepted our invitation to come out and teach us some dance steps. Everyone was out of their chair to learn a fun line dance and the adults were up for the waltz. We also enjoyed watching Derrell and Sheron perform a dance for

us. They are a great couple and we hope they will join us again. It was fun! We had many fun dances throughout the evening including the chicken dance, the macarena and footloose. The Gangnam was our favourite and the only adult to keep up with us was Mr. Walters. Cool! The only competition for the night was our pumpkin carving contest. All 4-H members were invited to bring a carved pumpkin which were then judged by all the people in attendance as they voted for their favourites. Congratulations to the winners who were: Cloverbuds - first, Raegan Walter; second, Ian Petterson; Juniors - first, Jordan Walter; second, Carlee Ross; Intermediate - first, Riley Ingram; second, Athena Dunford; Seniors - first, Nevin Breault; 2nd, Mindy Hockley. Also hats off to 4-H leader Kim Ingram (Crossroads) who carved a fantastic 4-H clover pumpkin. The winners were awarded prizes of a 4-H feed scoop filled with candy and 4-H water bottles with candy. Nobody left hungry as there was plenty of food and treats, coffee and juice. We are excited to report that we had over 70 guests and five 4-H clubs were represented at the dance. Thanks for coming and we look forward to doing this again! This was a great kick-off to a new 4-H year. To all 4-H clubs, have a great year; to the parents and the members of the OutramMadigan 4-H Club, thanks for all your help in making this a success.

Learning to hunt waterfowl the right way By Norm Park of The Mercury It was a small group with a specific goal in mind and excuse the pun ... they had a blast. A youth mentored waterfowl hunt was conducted in the Estevan area Oct. 27 and 28. The event was co-ordinated by local hunter and outdoorsman Garry Leslie who used a training template recommended by Ducks Unlimited. The training session sees one young hunter or potential hunter teamed up with one experienced hunter under careful guidelines to ensure safety as well as a rewarding hunting experience. “We didn’t seem to have a big program for new waterfowl hunters, or those thinking they wanted to be,” said Leslie. “We have programs for land birds and big game, so some local Estevan Wildlife Federation members got together to make this happen.” There were five young

hunters paired up with five experienced hunters for the two-day session that began with a Saturday afternoon dedicated to firearm safety reviews, patterning shotguns, trap shooting, blind set-up and shooting from blinds, decoy set-ups, and general discussion about the next day’s shoot. Local conservation offi cer Ryan Kreinke attended the training session to answer questions regarding ethical and legal guidelines on a waterfowl hunt. “The next morning at 5:30, parents and youth hunters arrived at my farm and the young people were paired with their mentors for the ride to the field. The previous day’s training on decoys and blinds was put to practical use using the vehicle’s headlights. Each hunter and mentor occupied a single blind with the mentor handing out just one ammunition round at a time to ensure safety,” said Leslie. The ducks started arriving at 6:55, just before

the legal hunting time, which gave the mentors an excellent opportunity to engage their students in the legal and ethical discussions again. When the 7 a.m. legal hunting time arrived, the hunters noted that the ducks had co-operated by sticking around and three were taken. The hunt continued until 9:30 that morning with a dozen ducks and geese falling under the shots of the youth hunters. The empty hulls were cleaned up along with the blinds and decoys, and field photos were taken before everyone enjoyed a tailgate snack before returning to Leslie’s farm where a demonstration was provided on field dressing the birds. The young hunters then cleaned their own birds and the day concluded with a hot dog roast. “It’s a non-profit event that we like to do under the SWF umbrella. The guns that the young people used were all supplied by EWF members. This group consisted of young hunters

between the ages of 12 and 14. Twelve is the earliest age at which a young hunter can hunt legally,” Leslie said. The program however, can apply to anyone. In fact Leslie said that he has a 40-year-old first-time candidate patiently waiting for an opportunity to learn how to hunt properly under the program. Because of hunting season time limitations and work restrictions, Leslie said there was just one opportunity to pull this program off this year. “A lot of the kids who expressed interest have been in the EWF summer and winter youth camps. A few hadn’t,” he said. “Five participants was the best. We might have been able to handle six, but you don’t need too many faces popping up out of blinds for safety reasons as well as the potential for scaring off the ducks and geese. The more bodies you have, the more potential there is for something unplanned to happen.” All hunters used a

typical 12 gauge shotgun. There was a small registration fee covering the cost of the ammunition that was supplied. The students learned about the different sizes of shot, one for geese, the other for ducks, and learned about the various types of geese and ducks that are out there, he said. “The best thing was everyone got something. Nobody was shut out and the one shot at a time rule is good for another reason and that is the fact that the first-timer learns to make every shot count because in this case, they knew they didn’t have another shell to pump into the chamber, so they were going to make sure they were careful. They didn’t hurry and they paid close attention to the safety details so it was a great learning and teaching occasion,” Leslie said, noting that the previous mentored hunt wasn’t so successful. “I had to report that on that hunt, no duck or goose was injured,” he said with a laugh.

The hunt was carried out with permission of landowner Kevin Phillips who provided the space for the 10 participants on his land west of Bienfait. The mentors who were lined up to provide the practical and verbal lessons along with Leslie included Jerry Seipp, Rick Rohatyn, Victoria Leslie and Stefan Seipp. The young hunters included Riley Pylychaty, Damon Doerr, Dakota Carriere, Braiden Longney and Carlin Pylychaty. “When I reported in to SWF about completing the program, they told me that a sanctioned mentoring program had just been completed in Saskatoon as well. It seems to be growing in popularity,” Leslie said. He noted that it’s a good way to handle the introductions to waterfowl hunting by making sure that the right people are teaching and the students are getting all the bases covered thanks to the completeness of the program’s details.

MIILLER In Loving Memory of Kay Who passed away November 13, 2010 We thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday And days before that too. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, All we have is memories And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake With which we’ll never part, God has you in His keeping We have you in our hearts. - Lovingly remembered by your family: Peter, Don and Jan, Lorne and Cindy, Rodney and Karen and families.

Bertha Elizabeth Cundall October 25, 1921 November 9, 2005 Time slips by, but memories stay, Quietly remembered every day. Cherished thoughts of times together Loving memories that will last forever. Love and miss you, Mom. - Love always, Your Family.

CARD OF THANKS A Very Special THANK YOU! To all those who joined our family in celebrating Gary’s special birthday on Saturday, Oct. 27th!! It meant so much to have all of you there!! We give a special salute to the Bienfait Legion for providing us with such an excellent venue and to Larry Lindblad who assisted us in EVERY way to be sure we had everything we needed and more!! - Gary & Bev McKechney; Sterling, Cher yl, Kyler & Meaghan M c Ke c h n e y ; S t a c e y & C o l i n McInnes; Rob, Camy, Cole & Josh McKechney.

Doug Lesy November 12, 1958 October 2, 2010 Happy Birthday Dad If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken No time to say “goodbye” You were gone before I knew it and only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness and secret tears will flow What it meant to love you No one can ever know. But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more To remember all the happy times life still has much in store. Since you’ll never be forgotten I pledge to you todayA hallowed place within my heart is where you’ll always stay. We Miss You - Love, Jordy and Donna.

THANK YOU This is a belated Thank You. But at our age, it is a poor excuse. Just seems so much has gone on since our 60th Wedding Anniversary. Thanks to Rusty and Debbie for all the organizing and planning. Thanks to all the rest of our family for pitching in and helping to get ever ything ready on Saturday mor ning. You did a great job. Thanks to all who sent flowers, gifts and cards. They were greatly appreciated but not necessary. One of the greatest gifts of the day was just having all the guests that attended. The best gift was just having all our family from the youngest to the oldest here for the first time in years. Thanks to Days Inn for the dainties and the buffet lunch. You did a wonderful job. Thanks again to everyone who attended, and also those who were so kind to phone. Thanks again and may God Bless you all. - Love, Jean and Bill Batt.
