Games track could get boost The Saskatchewan Games Council will come to town tomorrow looking for reasons to award Estevan the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games, and the local bid committee could have a new reason to give them. Although it isn’t official yet, committee co-chair Brian Senchuk said meetings have been held with a local corporation and he is hopeful that the process of getting funds for a new track facility will speed up. The City of Estevan and South East Cornerstone School Division had committed sums of $336,000 and $225,000, respectively, earlier this year toward the construction of a new track for the Games at ECS. However, that money was committed over a five-year period, and with the goal being to finish the new track by 2015, the bid appears close to receiving an advance on that money from a local corporation. Senchuk said that while there are details yet to be worked out, the committee is “optimistic that things will fall into place” and “there’s going to be funding available to us that will enable us to move forward prior to that money being (received from the City and school division). “That’s encouraging. We have to demonstrate to the Games Council that we can accomplish this track by 2015,” Senchuk added. Tomorrow’s tour of the city will begin with a pep rally at 10 a.m. at ECS, which will serve as the athletes village, and from there, the bid committee will show the Games Council various proposed venues. They include the Pleasantdale softball fields, the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course, Woodlawn Athletic Field, Cactus Park, Estevan Exhibition Grounds and Affinity Place, proposed site of the opening and closing ceremonies. The tour will stop for a luncheon at the Saskatchewan Energy Training Institute at noon, a chance for community leaders to impress their support upon the Games committee. Several members of the bid committee will be on the tour bus with the Games Council, and the route chosen will allow for maximum exposure to signs put up in city businesses and residents’ windows. Senchuk said that visible support will be key. “I think it’s very important. I think Swift Current is pretty confident in what they’re putting together and so are we. We need our citizens to put us ahead of them again. Estevan cannot be outdone. “Obviously, they’re going to judge us based on what we have to offer, but I think what it does is it makes them more comfortable in their decision, more decisive, instead of questioning.”

Two men injured in collision with train Two men were injured after a truck-train collision Thursday in Midale. According to a press release, the Weyburn RCMP detachment was alerted to the collision at 12:02 p.m. The release noted that a truck was travelling north on a grid road on the southeast outskirts of Midale. Upon impact the truck was pushed along the tracks into the town limits.

The 25-year-old driver of the truck sustained non-life threatening injuries while the 22-year-old passenger was taken to hospital in Regina via the STARS air ambulance with serious injuries. The accident occurred at an uncontrolled intersection and no rail cars left the tracks as a result of the collision.

The system will be deployed to notify families about bus cancellations, school closures, forms that need to be signed, coming events and other reminders. The process will ensure correct delivery of school messages as long as the family contact phone numbers and e-mail addresses are updated when the students are registered, or if they are changed during the course of the school year. The call or e-mail message will arrive on the phone on the display screen if the family subscribes to call display and the school name will also be a part of the e-mail address. Parents and guardians are asked to make sure they listen to the entire message since there may be more than one announcement or reminder. “Once the message has ended follow the receipt confirmation prompts. If this step is not completed, the system will assume you did not receive the call and will call again,” said the note that was sent out to parents informing them of the added service.

Modern veteran shares story of military life We often think about veterans who served in the World Wars, but Canada’s servicemen and women have continued to serve in conflict areas around the world. Cort Barker served overseas in Bosnia in 2000 and 2003 as well as Afghanistan in 2006. Barker began a military life as early as he could, signing up as an 18-year-old in 1999. He grew up in Bienfait and moved back to Estevan following his nearly nine years in the Armed Forces. He is now partnered with Kent Phillips running Performance Pump Service in the Energy City. B a r k e r ’s f a m i l y doesn’t have an extended history of military service, but he had a great-grandfather who served in the Second World War, and he said a military life was something he had always wanted to have. Barker worked five years in armoured reconnaissance, as well as two years as a Leopard tank gunner and loader, completing his service attached to a medic unit in Afghanistan in 2006, retiring as a corporal shortly after his return. After serving in Bosnia and Afghanistan, he said one of the biggest differences to overcome was the extremes in weather, most prominently the Middle East country’s heat. “It was really hot in Afghanistan. In the summer there, it was 57 de-

“In Afghanistan, I dealt more with people, because I’d be the medics’ bodyguard or close support, as they would treat people. They would set up lots of aid stations and stuff like that, where they would have to treat the wounded or prisoners, so you’d have to hang around them.” — Cort Barker

grees,” said Barker, noting there weren’t really any options to try to keep from sweating through his gear. “You just put up with it. You have 30 kilos of gear on too, (sitting) inside a steel box.” He noted that his time in the military had him acclimatizing to many extremes. Along with the Afghani summers, he spent time in the Arctic completing harsh-winter training. “We worked with the Rangers and the Inuit up there for a month. I had a great time up there, but I’d never go back there again. We would cut ice off the ice floes and melt it and drink it,” he said about the winter survival skills they learned. “We got to go on a seal hunt with the Inuit.” While in Bosnia in 2000 for a NATO mission, he said a lot of his job was relocating people.

“One ethnic group took over an area. They displaced people back to where they came from, and then they left the original people in that area. There was a lot of keeping tabs on the three factions army,” Barker said. “We would checklist their inventory and equipment and make sure it was where it was supposed to be.” Near the end of his career in Afghanistan, his job was different, having been teamed up with a medical unit for his eightmonth tour. “In Afghanistan, I dealt more with people, because I’d be the medics’ bodyguard or close support, as they would treat people. They would set up lots of aid stations and stuff like that, where they would have to treat the wounded or prisoners, so you’d have to hang around

The unit was embedded right in with an infantry platoon and would be away from Kandahar headquarters for up to a month at a time. “You would sleep in a ditch you dug or a forward base we had to build because we were the first ones there. Nothing was established other than the base at Kandahar itself,” said Barker. “There were lots of combat missions. There were a few aid stations. There was lots of sitting around.” Overseas deployment for Canadian soldiers is voluntary, and Barker said he was happy to serve in other countries. “You either go or you stay at home,” he said with a laugh. “You wouldn’t want to be part of a hockey team and sit on the bench, would you?” When enlisting in the army, he chose an armoured unit and spent most of his career familiarizing himself with the interior of a Coyote Reconnaissance Vehicle, a light armoured tank. He spent time as a driver and a surveillance operator while

Both vehicles support a crew of four. He was stationed in Edmonton for his entire career outside of deployment, constantly training either physically or brushing up knowledge skills like vehicle recognition. Domestically, he said he missed most of the natural disasters in which the army was called in to assist, but he was involved in security for the G8 Summit in 2002 when it was located in Kananaskis, Alta. He was part of the crews in charge of ensuring the meeting locations were secure.

The Coyote he was in is equipped with thermal night vision cameras and radar and day cameras. “We were just set up, and we would scan the mountainside and make sure nobody got in through the mountain pass.” They had to be watching a couple of weeks prior to the summit as well as some time after. He decided to exit the military after he and his wife decided they wanted to start a family. He said it wouldn’t be fair if he were gone all the time, so decided to make the move back to his home province. “It’s a lot of work and dedication. It’s your way of life. It’s your living,” said Barker.

Estevan Mercury

Cornerstone seeking solution for school renewals Norm Park Of The Mercury The South East Cornerstone Public School Division is seeking advice and suggestions from the various School Community Councils (SCC) in the region. Marc Casavant, Cornerstone’s director of education, along with board members, attended a meeting of SCC members from the five Estevan public schools on Oct. 29, the first of several sessions they were engaged in around the school division last week. The meeting in Estevan provided the school division an opportunity to place their situation in front of the community councils while asking for some positive input that will help direct them in the near future as well as assisting in putting forth some long-term plans. “We have been trying to establish a meeting with City officials over the past few months. We tried a couple of times, but both times they were cancelled at the last minute. We’re still interested in setting up a dialogue with the City regarding expected growth, where it might happen and how fast it might be,” said Casavant. “The City is planning on growth, so we’re asking the questions as to what they might see happening, what they are anticipating, just as we are with the SCCs,” Casavant said. “We will continue to try to arrange a meeting because we believe it’s important,” he said, especially when it comes to the question of expected growth in school enrollments. Current school registration numbers indicate that Spruce Ridge is well above expected capacity and Westview School is also at peak numbers, while there is still room for more student population growth at Hillcrest and Pleasantdale elementary (K to Gr. 8) schools. The Comprehensive School is well below capacity with just under 850 students.

Casavant said the board and administration wanted to talk with the community groups to get their advice on anticipated growth, new capital project models, enrollment and space utilization issues while setting a path for analysis and problem solving. There are several long-range situations that the director said are of growing concern. “The (provincial government) funding model, the way it is, indicates that money will be flowing to high enrollment and high utilization schools, or those with serious health and safety issues and to schools showing certain efficiencies, so that doesn’t lead to a lot of promise for funds for South East Cornerstone,” Casavant said. He cited one example, that of ECS, which will be in need of a major facelift very soon, “but how do we get it done based on the current criteria? If they base the capital funding for this school like they do for all the others, how would ECS ever get on a priority list?” Casavant explained that funding is based on student population and utilization per square foot formulas, and comprehensive schools like ECS that require a lot of space for certain programs, just don’t fit the formula. “They need large spaces, let’s say for something like welding classes, and it’s probably pretty full with 16 students in each class. That doesn’t fit the formula,” he said. On top of that, ECS was built to accommodate as many as 1,200 students, which again, works against the formula. Casavant said their pending trip to Moosomin will probably show similar problems with the elementary school filled to overflowing while the high school is underutilized. “That’s why we want to see all the SCCs starting to do some visioning so that we, as an administration, and board can see what will impact South East Cornerstone.” The director said he learned at the

“If they base the capital funding for this school like they do for all the others, how would ECS ever get on a priority list?” Estevan meeting that there could be a real growth spurt on the southern edge of Estevan within the next two years, which will obviously impact Hillcrest School, turning it from a facility with additional space, to one that will be cramped. “If there is that expected growth of 100 or 200 homes, we would expect onequarter of them at least will be housing families, which could mean an extra 100 kids,” Casavant said. “So there are ongoing problems with calculating utilization rates in schools and we keep bringing that up at our meetings with ministry officials. So far we haven’t seen a lot of transparency in regards to how the funding is calculated, so we just keep on asking,” Casavant added. Further problems surface as the one-size-fits-all formulas are applied to facilities with vastly different needs, populations and configurations such as the ECS model, where trades are taught or, as he pointed out, trying to compare the newly built school in Oxbow with the oldest school facility in Alameda where space usage is entirely different. “So we’re asking the SCCs to discuss possible solutions. We have undergone a facility review regarding the integrity and maintenance issues in each of our schools,” he said. There is also a review underway regarding attendance boundaries, which could lead to the shuffling of some students. The Cornerstone board will be form-

Mark Casavant ing an ad hoc committee in November to build terms of reference and a timeline model for future communication with the community councils. “As we learn more about the capital funding model, I get quite concerned as to how small urban and rural boards are going to get a piece of the (construction/ maintenance) pie. How will a small rural or small urban school community ever get a new school under the criteria as it’s spelled out now? If we play by the current rules, it’s going to be tough. What I do see though is that the ministry is providing leadership in getting some more cards on the table. Now we have to figure out the needs and how to qualify for funding,” Casavant said in conclusion. South East Cornerstone serves a vast geographical area that includes 38 schools and more than 8,100 students.

Touring around the Estevan Comprehensive School gymnasium last week, Emily Beahm and Ouiame Minouche stop for a chat on of the booths set up for the school’s annual Career Fair.

Stopping for some more information at the RCMP booth at the Estevan Comprehensive School’s Career Fair was student Jared Deleeuw.

Career fair shows students their options Students at the Estevan Comprehensive School (ECS) had the chance to daydream about their futures as the high school hosted its annual Career Fair, welcoming businesses and post-secondary institutions to show off the opportunities they provide students. The school’s gymnasium was filled Oct. 30 with 55 booths trying to attract the swath of students from Grades 9 through 12 who filtered through the fair throughout the day. Stacy Dutka, a guidance counsellor at ECS, organized the event again this year and said she spoke to many of the business people at the booths who found students were stopping to get some more information. “For the students, it’s just really a chance to get the firsthand information,” said Dutka. She noted as a guidance counselor, she does speak with schools and employers so she can relay information to students, but these fairs allow students to get answers themselves. “Here they have a chance to ask questions to the people who are the experts in those areas. If someone comes down

and asks me what a day looks like in the life of a heavy duty mechanic, I really don’t know, but having a heavy machinery mechanic show up for the day and answer those questions, it’s that first-hand knowledge (that is provided).” Representatives from colleges and universities can also provide more insight into what campus life is like at their schools and what typical class sizes are for different programs. “The morning sessions and the afternoon sessions in the classroom were well attended,” said Dutka. In those sessions, she said sometimes students are a little tentative about asking questions of employers, but if a teacher starts things off, the students will get more engaged and voice their curiosity. There was lots of local representation from the Estevan business community at the career fair, as well as a post-secondary presence from many schools in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. Dutka pointed out that there could be more of a stronger attendance of local businesses, but many are too short staffed to devote the time for someone to be present at

the fair for an entire day. “We really see that come through in the trades and in health care. They just don’t have the extra bodies right now,” she said. With schools showing off their finer qualities at the career fair, it provided an opportunity for the students looking to further their education to learn more about what school may suit them best. “It gives the students the chance to hear the sales pitch, and then if they do want to go do a campus visit, they feel a little more comfortable coming down and asking if that’s something we can set up,” said Dutka. “They’ve seen the presentation video. They’ve seen the information and they’re making a more informed decision, narrowing down where they want to go.” The fair was open to all students at ECS from, and it also saw three rural schools attending from Lampman, Stoughton and Gladmar.

Let’s put our best foot forward

“You only get one chance to make a first impression.” It’s one of the most worn out clichés known to man, but in the case of Estevan’s bid for the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games it’s very much apropos. The selection committee for the 2016 Games will be in Estevan Thursday to tour the city and speak with the members of the local committee vying to bring the Games to Estevan, which last hosted them in 1980. The Energy City is one of four communities in the hunt for the Games along with Swift Current, Melfort and Humboldt. The general speculation is that Swift Current is the leading contender among the four still in the race. Speedy Creek last hosted the Games in 1976 and have a sparkling new track and field facility that would obviously be a major component of their bid. Luckily for Estevan, we have a pretty good ace up our sleeve in the local bid committee. There are a lot of people around who like to take credit for things they don’t necessarily deserve credit for. This committee is made up of the people who deserve the credit for a lot of things but are happy to work quietly behind the scenes to make our community a better place. This is a dedicated group who have put together an excellent plan to present to the selection committee tomorrow. They have gone to great pains to ensure the local bid is the absolute best it can be, and we are confident they will make the decision a very tough one for the members of the selection committee. With the bid group doing everything they can to sway the selectors, it’s imperative that the citizens of Estevan also get behind the bid. It’s certain that each community still vying for the Games will make excellent presentations to the selection committee. The tipping point for the winning community is most likely going to be the support said community shows when the selection team conducts its visit. It is imperative that if Estevan is to win the right to host the 2016 Games we show the selectors that we actually want the Games. There are many ways to express that support. The local committee is asking residents to show their support by putting a sign in the window of their home or on their lawn. Businesses can show their support by putting a sign or a message in their window. Social media is also important to the bid and residents are being asked to support the bid over Facebook and Twitter. With each community making their pitch, it will be the little things that make the difference and however small something like a simple sign might seem, it will be noticed, and it will make a big difference. We have shown in the past with events such as Riderville and the Kraft Celebration Tour that Estevan can get behind a worthwhile event. We need to show that spirit again as the Games are indeed a worthwhile event and would leave a very important legacy in Estevan. The people in charge of the bid have adopted the slogan “We will not fail” and have taken every step to ensure they don’t. They have done their job and now it’s up to the rest of the community to get behind this bid and ensure that we do not fail them.

Rural Sask. must get more from boom

One might not necessarily know it from the number of new half-tons one sees on rural Saskatchewan’s main streets, but smaller communities aren’t benefiting as much from the boom. Or at least, they are not benefiting as much in a longterm way where it really counts. Take the recent figures in overall Saskatchewan student enrolment that has increased to 170,582 after stagnating around 160,000 for most of the last decade. Nineteen of 29 school divisions reported increased enrolment from last year. However, that growth is hardly equitable. For example, Sun West School Division had 4,990 students in 2005-06, but only 4,544 students registered for this year. By contrast, Saskatoon School Division had 20,306 in 2005-06, but 22,167 this year. It’s the old frustration of the depopulation of agriculturSERVING CANADA’S SUNSHINE CAPITAL

Bringing passion to to the moment Being passionate about something, anything, is generally a good thing. You can be passionate regarding a partner or passionate about a hobby or sport and of course, passionate about your job … like I am. (Do ya think that’ll get me a raise?) Some people get so passionate about certain topics, they take to the streets in protest and chant slogans and demand action. These demonstrations of passion generally have something to do with politics. So while I may be passionate about this here job, I’ve never been so passionate that I’ve felt compelled to “take it to the streets” to voice objection or support for anything. It probably comes with the territory of being in this job (that I love so much), which entails observing and recording the activities of others with objectivity and neutrality, or the best objectivity I can muster. In this job, one is not expected to be part of the mob or movement. Even as a recovering sports reporter, it was about three years after leaving the role before I found myself actually cheering for the home team in hockey, baseball, football et al. Others would be jumping, cheering, hollering, swearing at

Norm Park All Things Considered the officials while I maintained a calm demeanour, remarking only on the good plays I saw, from either team. And I definitely never got worked up enough about anything political to the point of picking up a sign to march and yell. I’ve often wondered what they really do in protest marches. Like where do they start and where do they go to and how do you end them? OK, burn a police cruiser, but then what? Lose a hockey game in Vancouver, go burn a police car and smash windows. That’ll show ‘em. Show ‘em what? The limited weight of your brain? I dunno. Protest marches must just fade away when the people either get hungry, sober, cold, wet or jailed. Then there are candles and vigils. Again, I’m not good with candles. They take too long to light, especially in Saskatchewan where the wind blows constantly. I don’t know what to do at vigils either. They are sombre

al-based rural communities while the cities grow. Even in this period where most school divisions across the province are at least holding their own, overall, they aren’t doing as well. For this, one can hardly fault the Saskatchewan Party government. This is the age-old reality in our province. In fact, some might be inclined to credit Premier Brad Wall’s administration for reversing Saskatchewan’s de-population trend. But more irksome is the way Sask. Party government is now addressing growth issues where small and rural-based Saskatchewan businesses aren’t likely to benefit as much as they should. At issue is the government’s plan to build nine needed new schools through a public-private partnership (P3) model to meet overcrowding. That most of these schools will be built in Saskatoon and Regina (ironically, Regina has been in the business of closing schools in the past 10 years) is a given. The government cannot be blamed for that. But what’s less acceptable is that even in rural-based communities like Martensville and Warman that will also get schools, it’s quite possible that local contractors won’t get much of a shot at bidding. That’s because of the bulkbuild-bundle model the government is choosing. According to Saskatchewan Construction Association (SCA) director Mark Cooper, it boils down to the government’s decision to “bundle” all nine schools under one contractor for approximately $50-million each. This is actually a hefty per school price tag, well in excess of recent school costs so it would seem that the savings are not to be had.

and done in public. I don’t like public sombreness. I prefer to do my reflections alone without candles. The other thing about protest marches are the bad chants. I mean, really, these protest leaders should hire a songwriter Hey hey, ho, ho … (somebody or something) has got to go! Hey, hey, ho ho … blah, blah, blah. Or if it’s a union thing, we get the same old Solidarity Forever thing sung to the tune of the American Battle Hymn of the Republic. You would think someone could get Gordie Lightfoot to write up something Canadian. How about those guys with the bull horn? “What do we want?” (rejoinder from the crowd is whatever the simple solution to the problem is at that moment) “When do we want it?” And the response is always “right now” yelled back by the passionate gathering. Me? I’d be inclined to yell back something like “I want it the first Tuesday of next month.” Then we’d see what the guy with the bullhorn had to say next. I think I’d be banned from the mob. Just not passionate enough.

Cooper said a similar bundled model for Alberta schools is not only costing more because there aren’t enough bidders, but also is defeating the intended purpose of this type of contracting to get things built quicker. In fact, 19 P3 model schools being built in Alberta under this bundling concept will likely be delayed because of a lack of bidders. Even Alberta’s Wildrose Party is now taking exception to the plan and for good reason. The SCA director explained that if you are an electrical contractor in Martensville who wants to bid on the contract for the local school being, in your community, you will likely have to bid on the electrical contract for the other eight bundled schools. This means that such small contractors — including those in rural communities — will likely be shut out of the process. That makes doing business in rural Saskatchewan that much less viable, the very thing that makes long-term declining enrolment in rural Saskatchewan a self-fulfilling prophecy. This is troubling and even the Sask. Party government had its past qualms about the P3s for schools. Five years ago, former education and now Finance Minister Ken Krawetz rejected the P3 model for schools because of added costs over 25 years. The Sask. Party government needs to be smarter to ensure rural communities and smaller businesses take advantage of this boom. Maybe we do need to build these schools quickly, but it can’t come at the cost of actually widening the inequity between rural and urban Saskatchewan.

Letters to the Editor

November 6, 2013 A7

Being a have province not all it’s cracked up to be The Editor: My deepest sympathies is extended to the 276 employees at Sears being laid off and tax dollars funneled out of our have province to Alberta AND B.C. To me today I do not see too much good going on in our have province. Privatization is coming into our health care in the next two years; more tax dollars funneling out to Alberta; the laundry services for Sask., Health care is going to be done here in Saskatchewan for just above minimum wage; 100 jobs are going to be cut in Prince Albert alone; profits from the laundry services going to Alberta … this is just the start. Next lab techs, x-ray techs, ultrasound techs, maintenance workers, dietary workers housekeeping and on and on and on. Right now we are the middle-class citizens. In the next 10 years, we will have poor people, workers and rich people. I have worked in the health system for 37 years and I can stand and greet people at Walmart for $10 per hour and not do my physically, mentally and emotional job for $10.75. You work with residents for years and tell me that your heart does not break while you hold their hand while they are dying. Isn’t it sad to say in our have province that Estevan and area schools have to have a breakfast program to feed our children? That is just wrong in my books. Rent is unaffordable; housing is unattainable; the cost of living going up and SaskPower announced a five per cent increase again. But you can have a 1.5 per cent increase in wages and feed your children. Do you see where I am going now middle class of workers? We will bleed your wages dry in increases in bills and rent and housing but no increase in wages as our have province cannot give you a raise. Sask. highway workers were pretty well shut down in the 1990’s and our highways are literally falling apart. Some, not just a few, are going back to gravel roads. Hiring private companies to fix highways is not working for us. It’s time for all taxpayers to start phoning and writing letters as you can make a dif-

ference. I enjoy my middle class work home supper. I do not want to have to worry if I get hard dog food or soft for supper. That’s where the have province is going. Poor or rich, where are you going to be? Ring those phones. I’ll be at the Salvation Army again to feed the babies in our area for Christmas again this year. I just can’t imagine babies going hungry. Can you? Sandy Hedstrom Bienfait

Offer to teachers was insulting The Editor: I was disappointed that only 73 percent of Saskatchewan’s over 12,000 teachers voted down a contract offer from the government. Teachers were offered an insulting four-year agreement of 1.375 percent per year. This is on top of teachers accepting a less than cost of living settlement for a three-year retroactive contract in 2011 and point six of a percent (.006) over five years during the 1990s. One wonders whether the 27 percent of teachers numbering approximately 3,200 who vote for this measly contract offer can manage even fundamental mathematics, and can actually calculate anything; or maybe they just like being treated like second-class employees, unvalued and easily intimidated. Or maybe they just don’t care much anymore. Dennis Hall Saskatoon

Teachers strongly reject contract offer The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation announced Friday that teachers have rejected the proposed tentative provincial collective bargaining agreement for 2013-2017. The vote on the tentative agreement held province-wide on Oct. 22, resulted in 73 per cent of teachers voting against the agreement that was placed before teachers for their consideration. A total of 12,403 ballots were returned to the auditing firm that tabulated the vote on behalf of the Federation. “Teachers have spoken clearly. Their perspectives are consistent with those that we communicated at the bargaining table,” said Colin Keess, president of the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation. “Teachers are looking for change in relationships and supports for teaching and learning. As we met with teachers over the last few weeks, it has become clear to us that teachers are looking for evidence of the government’s commitment to reengaging with teachers.” The STF release noted that teachers have been experiencing intensification of their work including growing diversity in Saskatchewan classrooms, issues of class composition and size, changes to curriculum and assessment, and the rapid pace of change in educational initiatives with limited consultation with teachers. Recent changes to The Education Act, 1995 and the accompanying regulations with respect to the issue of school day and year have also impacted the workload of teachers. “The teachers’ bargaining committee remains committed to the goal of achieving a mutually acceptable provincial collective bargaining agreement through direct negotiations,” Keess said. “The federation will continue to follow the pathway set out in The Education Act, 1995, which includes returning to the bargaining table as the first step.” Over the next month, the federation will

be engaging with members and preparing for a return to the negotiating table. Saskatchewan teachers have been without a contract since Aug. 31. The reaction from the provincial Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee was one of disappointment. However, the committee remains committed to successfully negotiating a provincial collective agreement with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation. “The Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee negotiated a fair, reasonable and competitive offer to the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation that, if ratified would have resulted in its members being some of the highest paid teachers in the Western provinces,” committee spokesperson Connie Bailey said. “We entered into this bargaining process in good faith and we had a very strong offer on the table. This offer included both the government’s and school boards’ recognition of the importance of teachers and our commitment to strengthening those relationships.” When determining offers of compensation, the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee does a thorough analysis of compensation packages for teachers from all other provinces, with special attention paid to the Western provinces, as well as supply and demand pressures. In a government release it was noted the Alberta government recently reached an agreement with teachers that will see the salary grid frozen for three years (0 per cent), fol-

lowed by an increase of two per cent in 2015 and a one-time lump sum payment to be funded by government in that same year. The tentative agreement with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation would have provided a total of 6.5 per cent increase over four years, including a 5.5 per cent salary increase and a one per cent lump sum payment over the first two years. “It’s important to provide a competitive salary for Saskatchewan’s teacher professionals and a lot of hard work and negotiation went into the development of the tentative agreement,” Bailey said. “While we are disappointed that the offer was rejected, we are still confident in the bargaining process, and we will be working with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation to determine when we can go back to the table. “There are 13,000 teachers that work in our schools and help our students learn every day. We will continue to work with our teachers and our schools to ensure that education and our Purchase a schools

remain operating. Teachers, boards of education and the government have always and will always place our students first.” The Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee is comprised of representatives from both the Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan School Boards Association. The committee is responsible for representing the interests of both the publicly funded school system and the employer in bargaining negotiations with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation.

City to begin work on budget soon With a rather sizable debt looming as the elephant in the room, the members of City council will be sitting down for budget deliberations in the near future. Councillor Greg Hoffort, who had been serving as deputy Mayor until Oct. 31, said council talks about the budget on a regular basis, but he expects that much of the work will done within the next month. “It’s council’s desire to get a lot of the budget work done this year, prior to the year end so we will be getting heavy into that within the next month,” he said. Work on the budget comes at a somewhat precarious time for the City. At the

Oct. 28 regular meeting council voted to increase the City’s debt ceiling from $45 million to $55 million to give them enough room to pay off their line of credit and also to have enough funds for important projects such as the Highway 47 rebuild. The request to increase the debt ceiling must be approved by the provincial government before it can proceed. At the meeting it was noted by Hoffort that council is committed to getting the City’s financial house in order and that all future spending will be watched closely. However, Hoffort said during an interview Friday that council also realizes it

has a city to run and that will be reflected in the budget. “We want to address the priorities that need to continue, we have a lot of committed projects that we have to see through next year,” he said. “We are certainly going to make every effort to make sure that we budget for what is necessary, as we always should. “We are certainly not going to shut down operations, we are going to tackle our debt problem while we manage the City at the same time. There are some challenges but council is united on their goals and objectives so that is going to

make things very manageable.” Hoffort said treasurer and acting city manager Jeff Ward has been working with the various departments to prepare for the budget. He added that all involved in the process understand the current financial picture, and he expects a co-operative effort between the managers and council. “Council has a lot of work to do in the budget but we rely on the expertise of our managers to a great extent so, to that end, Jeff has been working with them quite diligently to get us the information to make the decisions. I look forward to great things as does the rest of council.”

Business optimism drops in Sask. New man camp Perhaps it’s due to the oncoming winter, but optimism has dropped slightly in Saskatchewan. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business released its latest monthly Business Barometer last week, which showed that optimism among small business owners in Saskatchewan remained basically steady in October, as it had through the summer months. The Business Barometer index measured in at 69.4 in October, down slightly from an index of 70.7 in September, placing it the fourth highest in Canada and well above the national index of 65.0. Sixty-five per cent of Saskatchewan small business owners rate their overall state of business as good – by far the highest in Canada and well ahead of the national average of 41 per cent. Hiring plans also remain strong with 26 per cent planning to increase full-time employment in the next three to four months — the second highest in Canada. “Small business optimism in both Alberta and Saskatchewan fell back slightly in October, but still remain well above the national average,” said Marilyn Braun-Pollon, CFIB’s vice-president, prairie and

agri-business. “It is encouraging to see Saskatchewan continue to lead or be near the top on a number of important indicators such as the overall state of business and hiring plans. While small business owners remain confident about the future of Saskatchewan’s economy, they do worry that some municipalities will hike property taxes in 2014, which will not only dampen optimism but also make us less competitive.” After a rough spring, Canada’s small business optimism has trended into more positive territory so far this fall. The overall index gained a half point to 65.0 from September’s reading, but it remains in line with the average value from the past four months. “Although the index went up slightly in October, what we can take from the last four months is a general stabilizing trend,” said Ted Mallett, CFIB’s chief economist and vicepresident. “In the coming months, it will be telling to see if business owners can build confidence levels further in light of reasonably stable price and interest rate environments and improving prospects for the US economy.” The most upbeat business own-

ers are in Newfoundland & Labrador (76.4) and British Columbia (70.7) – both provinces seeing big gains this month. Optimism in Alberta (70.4) and Saskatchewan (69.4) fell back slightly, but still remain above average. Ontario is next (66.6) followed by Manitoba (62.4), Nova Scotia (60.1), Quebec (57.8), New Brunswick (57.0) and Prince Edward Island (49.0) - which are all below the national average. Results and the full report are available at: www.cfib-fcei. ca/english/barometer Provincial highlights include: • 65 per cent of businesses in Saskatchewan say the overall state of business is good (41 per cent nationally); just two per cent say it is bad (13 per cent nationally). • 26 per cent of Saskatchewan businesses plan to increase full-time employment in the next three-four months (18 per cent nationally) and just seven per cent plan to decrease full-time employment (12 per cent nationally). • The shortage of skilled labour (39 per cent) remains the main operating challenge: highest in Canada. • Major cost pressures for small business include: wages (43 per cent); fuel/energy (37 per cent); and

nesses there, and they had good reasons, logical reasons, for them not to be there,” said Potter. “We just didn’t have the infrastructure, really, in place to add that many more people.” For this new proposal, the camp would have a little more space to keep it separate from other properties. “They’re going to be away from other people. Not that they aren’t relatively close to acreages, but they will be across the highway and across the CPR tracks. There’s quite a buffer there,” said Potter, who said the RM is prepared to hear any concerns from people who may be affected by the development. A public hearing will be held on Nov. 13 at the RM office for ratepayers, and at that time the full details of the proposal will be made public and any questions or concerns may be aired at that time. Each person with land within a mile of the proposed site received a letter regarding the meeting, and she said all other landowners in the RM are welcome to learn more about the proposed development site.

The RM of Estevan is seeking some public input on a proposal for another man camp located within the municipality. A permit application has been filed for AA Estevan Lodge Inc. to set up a 260-room work camp just south of Highway 39 west of Estevan. This proposed camp would add to the available accommodation inside the RM following the recent opening of Boundary Lodge, a 350-room work camp northeast of Estevan. The proposed parcel of land for the camp was originally slated to sit behind the weigh scales on Highway 39, and would be situated on 13 acres of land. The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure rejected that plan, so the new proposal has the camp situated north of the highway, across from the weigh scales. Grace Potter, RM of Estevan administrator, said it is the third attempt by this group to install a camp in the municipality. A previous proposal was for a camp off Breeze Street near the Prairie Animal Health Centre. “We had a lot of feedback from the people who live there or have busi-

Two ECS students named to honour band Two Estevan Comprehensive School students are members of the Saskatchewan Provincial Honour Band. Everett Schwab has been with the band for three years while Matthew Grunert is a first-year member. They are two of the 57 members of the provincial band, chosen by audition in May. The Saskatchewan Music Conference will be held over the weekend in Regina. While teachers are attending sessions, the provincial Honour Band, Honour Choir, and String Orchestra will be practising. The Honour groups will present a concert on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. in Regina at the Orr Centre (formally the Christian Bible College of Pasqua Street.) The concert is open to the public. Clinton Marshall is the director of the honour band. Recognized as one of the most dynamic and engaging directors in North America, Marshall is active as a band guest conductor, adjudicator, and clinician. For more than 30 years, he has traveled across North America sharing his knowledge, experience, and sense of humour with student musicians and music educators. He has led numerous honour bands as well as being a conductor at the Peace Gardens International Music Camp. For 19 years, Marshall was the conductor at the Maryland Center for the Arts, a program for Maryland’s gifted and talented students. In addition to his experiences with student musicians, he enjoys making music with adult community bands.

Today is Take Our Kids to Work Day in Estevan and area. The project gives young Grade 9 students an opportunity to work alongside a parent, relative or family friend on a typical working day. That means well over 150 students from ECS will be out in the workforce today, learning what a local employment routine looks like from the inside, while gaining a good perspective on the importance of learning in both an institutional setting as well as on the job. The experience provides the young students an opportunity to explore career options in a practical way by spending a day on the job with those who are trained in that profession.

It also gives them a chance to develop an appreciation for the careers and roles played by their parents or friends in providing for their families. For the parents, it’s a great opportunity to share quality time and experiences with their child and to encourage a dialogue on career choices. One of the co-ordinators for the program at the Estevan Comprehensive School is Patricia Fergusson, who noted that a big thank you was in order for all the local businesses who support and promote the day’s activities by welcoming the young people into their offices, shops and vehicles for a first-hand look at the workplace for the day. “Without their co-operation, we obviously couldn’t offer this program,” said Fergusson.

Mayors discuss challenges of growth

Saskatchewan’s cities are continuing to deal with the challenges that come with growth and aging infrastructure. The mayors from the province’s 16 cities were in Regina last week to discuss a number of the common issues they are facing from housing to property assessment. Wi t h M a y o r R o y Ludwig currently on a trip to China, Councillor Greg Hoffort attended the meeting on behalf of the City of Estevan. Hoffort said the meeting is a good opportunity for the mayors to get together and talk about the numerous challenges. “We shared some experiences and learned about what the others are doing. We discussed a number of topics, it was a good group discussion,” said Hoffort, who had been serving as deputy mayor before handing the role over to fellow Councillor Lori Carr at the end of October. “There is a lot of cities in our situation that have some aging infrastructure and that challenge along with the need for growth and housing issues. There are some newer cities such as Warman and Martensville that are just growing like crazy so there is a little bit different of a challenge that they have. There is also the regional challenges that are trying to find their way with the area municipalities in their region.” Hoffort said since the meeting was his first, and likely last mayor’s caucus meeting, he found the experience very educational and came away with some ideas on how the City might better tackle certain matters. He noted the City of Regina gave a presentation on their proposal to build a new wastewater treatment plant using the controversial P3 financing model. Although the mayors involved in the meeting do not pass policy or anything of that sort, Hoffort noted they do work to come to a consensus on important topics so they can present a unified front when dealing with groups such as the provincial government. “We talked about future funding potentials and what is the best way to approach the province. Should it be regional, should it be for those experiencing heavy growth or those with aging infrastructure or is there a one-size-fits all solution? They work on generating on a common front.” The meeting also

included a presentation from the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency and the Saskatchewan Municipal Board.

A number of MLAs and cabinet ministers were also on hand to speak with the mayors. “Saskatchewan cit-

ies’ mayors have a unique experience, and this is an opportunity to learn from each other and advance the issues that matter in

our cities,” said Humboldt Mayor Malcolm Eaton, chairman of the City Mayors’ Caucus. “These discussions and presentations

are so valuable to us as leaders, and ultimately to our residents. We are here to make our communities better and stronger.”

Spreading Canada’s game to the Himalayas A former Estevan man is spearheading a drive to collect hockey equipment for children in the Himalayas. Through his website truetravellers.org, Andrew Wahba has started the program Hockey in the Himalayas. His goal is to collect 50 bags of hockey equipment and 300 sticks, all of which will be donated to the Students’ Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladakh (SECMOL), a non-profit organization with a focus on educating children in that area of India. Wahba, who grew up in Estevan and currently resides in Regina, came upon the idea when his friend James Turner, who had previously travelled to the Himalayas, heard Wahba was planning a trip to the area in January. The friend asked if he would consider being a “mule” and taking some equipment with him to the remote area of Northern India. “That just planted the seed,” said Wahba. “We ended up getting a pretty good contract in India to help with the logistics and transportation from Delhi to Northern India. “Once I got that, we thought let’s see if we can put together a campaign and put together some more equipment because originally I was just going to take one bag, whatever I could carry on myself.” Although India doesn’t immediately jump to mind

A former Estevan resident is collecting hockey equipment for children in the Himalayan region of India. (Photo courtesy of truetravellers.org) when one thinks of hockey hotbeds, Wahba said the children in the region are big fans of the game. “Apparently they are pretty mad about hockey there,” said Wahba. “They only have ice in January and maybe a week in December and maybe a week in February. “I saw some videos online, they are actually using essentially splints on

hockey sticks and screwing them back together because they really enjoy playing. They have tournaments, the boards look like 2x4s; they are pretty crazy about skating and hockey and there is a girls league as well.” Wahba said because the area is so remote and the kids rely solely on donations, many of them do not have skates or other

essential items. To remedy that problem they are seeking new or quality used youth equipment to take to India. The items of greatest need are skates and sticks but they also require gloves and helmets. Wa h b a s a i d a l o n g with collecting the equipment, they will also need around $8,000 to ship it to India. They began col-

– Dave Boczulak

Information session offered on foreign worker protection legislation The opportunity to learn more about foreign worker recruitment and protection in Estevan and southeast Saskatchewan drew only a handful of participants last Friday afternoon and evening. Those who did attend though, were able to leave the two-hour event armed with information regarding the Foreign Worker Recruitment and Immigration Services Act thanks to host presenter Dave Boczulak, an immigration policy adviser with the provincial Ministry of Advanced Education, Employment and Labour. The act, he explained to about a half-dozen local employers who attended the afternoon session in the auditorium of the Saskatchewan Energy Training Institute, is set up to protect foreign nationals as well as recruiters and employers. It provides interim protection for workers who arrive in Saskathewan who pick up temporary resident status leading to permanent residency. The integrity unit, he said, has been operating for about five years, and it takes in complaints by workers who feel they have been mistreated by employers who aren’t always following the regulations or who skirt around legislation. He said since most newcomers find themselves in extremely vulnerable situations, the act has been strengthened to help address issues that weren’t covered in previous regulations. Boczulak told the small group that the Integrity Unit within the

Dave Boczulak, immigration policy adviser provided interesting information regarding foreign worker recruitment responsibilities at two seminars in Estevan last Friday. Ministry of the Economy received a total of 353 cases between August 2008 to September of this year. Many of the incidents related to issues of legal rights and responsibilities

of foreign workers and their employers. About 30 per cent of those cases were not covered by existing federal or provincial legislation, thus the need to expand and tighten the

rules, which was done in Saskatchewan with the passing of the provincial bill in mid-October. The new legislation requires recruiters and immigration consultants to be licensed and sign only open, transparent contracts with workers and employers. All employers need to be registered and it prohibits them from charging or recovering recruitment fees from the foreign nationals. The new legislation also prevents the withholding of documents or property or threatening deportation and allows foreign workers and immigrants to seek compensation if they incur costs that are considered illegal under the act. Fines of up to $50,000 for an individual or $100,000 for a corporation and up to one year of

imprisonment may be the price to pay for those who are violating the act. “The newly arrived workers have to put their trust in just a few people, and often what they think is going to happen in the work place and what actually happens is quite different,” said Boczulak. Fraudulent job offers become very problematic to newcomers who may have sold all their belongings in another country, just to get to Canada, only to find out that the job offer is gone. Almost 48,000 immigrants have arrived in Saskatchewan since 2007 with more than 11,000 arriving in 2012 alone. Consultations with employers and prospective employers began in 2011 and were conducted again in 2012 as well as this year, said Boczulak. The newly tightened

regulations affect recruiters, immigration consultants and employers of foreign workers the most. “It’s the employer, not the worker, who bears the cost of recruitment. Jobs are gained on merit, not ability to pay someone. And recruitment fees are now capped and enforced,” said Boczulak. There are six other provincial jurisdictions that now have some form of regulation of foreign worker recruiters, consultants and employers of foreign workers. It was noted in a recent release, that all stakeholders benefi t from the new legislation since it makes Saskatchewan an attractive destination for immigrants, and employers receive assurances that the recruiters they use to fi nd the foreign workers are acting ethically and legally.

PSAC release fracturing code of conduct After completing an intense program of community engagement over the past six months, the Petroleum Services Association of Canada released a hydraulic fracturing code of conduct for the Canadian oil and gas service sector last week. The hydraulic fracturing code of conduct outlines standard practices for sound technical and environmental performance when fracturing a well and defines mutual expectations for working with stakeholders. “Working closely with stakeholders is critical to building trust in oil and gas operations,” said Mark Salkeld, president and CEO of PSAC. “We’ve seen public concern surrounding hydraulic fracturing operations increase over the past years. It was definitely time to address that in a proactive and positive way, but we knew talking to community members wasn’t going to be enough. We had to act. That’s why we created the hydraulic fracturing

code of conduct.” To gather community input into the purpose and content of the code of conduct, PSAC met with over 100 community members in seven regions in four provinces. Participants represented dozens of different community, synergy and environmental groups, as well as local governments and individual landowners. Community engagement sessions were held in Dawson Creek, British Columbia; Drayton Valley, Lethbridge, Grande Prairie and Red Deer, Alberta; Carlyle, Saskatchewan; and Brandon, Manitoba. In addition, PSAC returned to some of the communities to ask for additional feedback on the code of conduct in its draft form. Salked also spoke about the code during a speech to the Estevan Chamber of Commerce in October. Stakeholder feedback, combined with industry expertise, led to a hydraulic fracturing code of conduct that covers five

key areas: Water and the Environment; Fracturing Fluid Disclosure; Technology Development; Health, Safety and Training; and Community Engagement. Eleven leading PSAC member companies, all of which perform hydraulic fracturing, helped create the code of conduct and have voluntarily agreed to follow it, wherever they work in Canada. They are: Baker Hughes Canad, Iron Horse Energy Services, Calfrac Well Services, Millennium Stimulation Services, Canyon Technical Services, Sanjel Corporation, Element Technical Services, Schlumberger Canada, Gasfrac Energy Services, Trican Well Service and Halliburton Group Canada. The hydraulic fracturing code of conduct exemplifies these companies’ collective goal of ensuring operational excellence, reducing environmental impacts and maximizing the development of Canada’s vast resources, while delivering long-term

social benefits in a manner that supports the interests of all stakeholders. The hydraulic fracturing code of conduct is posted online at http://www.oilandgasinfo.ca/workingenergy-commitment/hydraulic-fracturingcode-of-conduct/ The aforementioned companies are also the founding members of PSAC’s Working Energy Commitment, dedicated to opening up the lines of communication between the oil and gas service sector and the public about how PSAC members operate and the steps they take every day to improve their performance. Given the increase in the number of wells being hydraulically fractured and the public’s concern about that, the Working Energy Commitment began with discussions about fracturing, but will expand to cover more oil and gas issues and operations in the near future. More on PSAC’s Working Energy Commitment can be found at www.workingenergy.ca

Drilling pace expected to drop in 2014 The Petroleum Services Association of Canada is expecting the drilling pace to slow in Saskatchewan in 2014. PSAC released its 2014 Canadian Drilling Activity Forecast session, last week in Calgary. PSAC is forecasting a total of 10,800 wells drilled (rig releases) across Canada for the coming year. This is a 1.5 per cent decrease compared to the expected final tally of 10,960 wells drilled for 2013. On a provincial basis for 2014, PSAC estimates 6,555 wells to be drilled in Alberta, representing a decrease of less than one per cent in the province compared to last year. Manitoba is expected to see a 7.7 per cent decrease in activity with 480 wells, while in Saskatchewan, drilling activity is expected to decrease by 3.5 per cent, with an estimated 3,196 wells to be drilled in the year ahead.

British Columbia is forecasted to drill 550 wells, a 2.2 per cent increase over 2013. PSAC is basing its 2014 forecast on average natural gas price of CDN $3.50/mcf (AECO) and crude oil price of US $95.00 barrel (WTI). “We are slightly optimistic about gas prices toward the end of 2014, however we expect little change in next year’s drilling levels for gas,” said Mark Salkeld, PSAC president. “But an even more significant factor affecting drilling activity across Canada is the widespread and growing use of technologies such as hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling — technologies that were once considered advanced innovations. “Quite simply, large-scale use of these kinds of technologies is creating a trend to fewer wells overall.

maximizing our use of technology, industry can increase production from existing wells, access more and deeper zones, and restart production from wells that have been shut in. This means we can maintain or even increase production, while drilling fewer new wells. In fact, one well today can be the equivalent of two, three or more wells drilled just 10 years ago. That’s a game changer for our industry.” The Petroleum Services Association of Canada is the national trade association representing the service, supply and manufacturing sectors within the upstream petroleum industry. PSAC represents a diverse range of nearly 260 member companies, employing more than 80,000 people and contracting almost exclusively to oil and gas exploration and production companies.

Large child porn collection leads to year in jail

A local man received a 12-month jail sentence after police found an extensive collection of child pornography on his computer. Barry Earl Jefferson had previously pleaded guilty to possessing and distributing child pornography following his arrest on March 26. Law enforcement became aware of the 34-year-old’s collection after beginning a general investigation into activity on a peer-to-peer, file-sharing network. In Estevan provincial court on Monday, Crown prosecutor Loreley Berra outlined the proposed sentence for the Crown, calling for a mandatory minimum jail sentence of six months for the possession charge and 12 months for the charge of distributing the material. While she requested the sentences be served consecutively, resulting in 18 months of jail, Jefferson’s counsel David Hickie suggested the sentences be served at the same time as the charges are connected with one another. Presiding Judge James Benison sided with the defence, noting that sentences should be served concurrently if the matters before the court are explicitly linked. As many of the images in Jefferson’s possession were also images he was sharing via the peer-to-peer service, Benison considered the charges to stem from the same place. During the investigation into Jef-

ferson’s activity last January, authorities downloaded 90 complete files directly from Jefferson and the material was deemed child pornography. Berra noted the majority of the images depicted pre-pubescent girls between the ages of six and 12 but some depicted girls as young as three. The investigation found 1,583 images on Jefferson’s computer as well as a video file. Berra noted many of the images were watermarked from LS Magazine, which features pornographic material prominently involving children. She added that many of the images were of children who have since been identified. “Many of these images were also checked in the international child pornography database, and about half the collection is actually of what is called an identified victim,” Berra told the court. “That means over the course of an investigation, through international means, the child has been identified and we know who that child is.” She noted one child was depicted in more than 150 different images. Berra said Jefferson’s pre-sentence report described him referring to a “rush” he received by downloading illegal material. “They are essentially depicting the most vulnerable of our society, those people who need protection. These images are being created for people who

Seven Estevan students graduate from U of S Seven Estevan natives were among the approximately 1,070 students graduated this fall from the University of Saskatchewan. These graduates join a community of more than 140,000 graduates who year after year continue to build upon the success of those before them. U of S alumni include a Canadian prime minister, Nobel Prize winners, award winning authors and artists, ground-breaking researchers, successful business executives and accomplished athletes. Those students graduating this year and

their degrees are: • Jennifer Drennan, Masters of Business Administration. • Justin Fieber, Bachelor of Commerce. • Jessica Gould, Bachelor of Science in Nursing. • Andrew Kitchen, Bachelor of Education. • Kim Mack, Bachelor of Physical Therapy. • Chelsey Peterson, Bachelor of Science in Nursing. • Jacine Styre, Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

RCMP look into fuel theft

The theft of an undisclosed volume of diesel fuel from the Midale Community Pasture in the RM of Cymri is being investigated by the Estevan detachment of the RCMP. The police said the theft occurred sometime between Friday morning, Oct. 25 and the morning of Monday, Oct. 28. Anyone with information regarding this theft is asked to contact the Estevan detachment at 306-6374400 or report anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. You may also report through SaskTel Mobility, text TIP206 plus your message to CRIMES (274637).

are downloading and requesting them,” said Berra. Hickie noted that Jefferson admits to having an addiction to pornography for many years and he is currently very active in addiction services and receives counselling regularly through the Sun Country Health Region and his pastor. He said that considering the “positive” steps his client has taken since his arrest, allowing Jefferson to serve his sentences concurrently would be appropriate. Because there is no programming for sexual offenders in the provincial cor-

rectional system, Jefferson will also be subject to a lengthy probationary period of three years following his release. In that time, he is expected to receive assessments and further counselling for any issues he may have. Jefferson will also be registered as a sex offender in the RCMP Sex Offender Registry, and must submit a DNA sample. He also will be prohibited from being in contact with anyone under 16 years of age attend a place where children generally spend time like parks, schools and pools without supervision.

Police say no major incidents spoiled Halloween activities For the second consecutive year, Estevan Police Service members were able to report that Halloween came and went without any major incidents of mischief or vandalism. Police referred to the evening of Oct 31 as rather uneventful from a policing perspective as the warmer temperatures and the lack of snow allowed the youngsters to make their trick or treat residential visits a pretty satisfying experience minus the tricks part of the equation. On the adult side of the evening, EPS members said they charged one 28-year-old driver for driving while his blood alcohol level was over .04 per cent, which led to a 24-hour suspension of his driving privileges. One other man was charged with speeding in a residential area. During a routine check on another vehicle containing a number of young people, police learned that the driver of

were unregistered vehicles so they were towed off the street. Later that evening police responded to a 911 call that turned out to be a false alarm coming from a local arena. It was discovered that some young children had been playing with the pay phone in the facility and had dialed 911 and then hung up. Police also responded to two calls regarding barking dogs. In both instances, the owners were warned about the local bylaws, and no further action was required.

the vehicle was doing so while suspended, so the vehicle was seized and the driver was issued a ticket. A further check on the occupants of the vehicle uncovered a male passenger who was wanted on outstanding warrants, so he was arrested and given a court date to answer to the charges. On Nov. 2, EPS members responded to a complaint of a couple of vehicles being parked in a certain area of the city. The licence plates on the two vehicles were checked and it was revealed that both

Bruins right winger Lynnden Pastachak loads up his shot during the first attempt of Friday’s shootout as North Stars goaltender Darren Martin follows the puck. He would make the save.

Bruins beat Stars, lose to Klippers Team acquires Clark, trades McLachlan, loses DeRoose to Everett On Friday, they were badly outplayed by the Battlefords North Stars and won. The next night, they doubled the Kindersley Klippers in shots and lost. None of it made any sense, but the CanElson Drilling Estevan Bruins will take the three points. The Bruins extended their winning streak to five games with a 3-2 shootout victory over the Stars, but it ended Saturday with a 2-1 overtime loss to the Klip-

pers. They had also edged the Yorkton Terriers 3-2 in overtime on Oct. 29. “I’m proud of the guys. They battled through some adversity and they’ve got nothing to hang their heads about,” said head coach and general manager Chris Lewgood following the loss to Kindersley. The Bruins had to kill off three penalties handed out in a span of 50 seconds early in the third period just to get to overtime, result-

ing in a full two-minute 5-on-3 for Kindersley. They included a contentious hitting from behind penalty on Corey Kosloski and a crosschecking call on Brett Blatz that Lewgood described as terrible. “In fairness to the referee, it was a huge dive. The player sold it really well and it was very obvious from my angle that it was a dive. Unfortunately, the referee wasn’t standing where I was and he may

not have been able to see it from where he was. I was disappointed in the call, disappointed a player would do that. That’s not how we like to win hockey games, that’s for sure. It was a blatant dive in my opinion. I thought to put our guys down on an extended 5-on-3 like that, I was shocked.” Giovanni Bombini would win it for the Klippers 3:53 into overtime, deking netminder Matt Gib-

ney stick side on a break. Tristan Sieben scored Kindersley’s lone regulation goal just 44 seconds into the contest. Wyatt Garagan tied the game less than four minutes into the third period, pinpointing a shot off the left post and past Klippers goalie Evan Weninger. That was the only goal Weninger surrendered on 52 shots in a spectacular outing. Still, Lewgood said

his club could have given the tender a tougher job, noting that “we threw too much right at him.” The coach added that with the Klippers sitting at 10-2-1 entering the game, his players “gave them a little too much respect in the first five minutes” but settled in after that. On Friday, meanwhile, Austin Daae fired home a bouncing centring pass from Lynnden Pastachak Bruins ⇢ B4

Panthers hammer Moose Jaw, Swift Current

The Estevan PowerTech Panthers continue to roll in their inaugural season in the South Saskatchewan Female Hockey League. The midget AA club thumped the Moose Jaw Warriors 8-1 on Saturday, then beat the Swift Current Titans 5-1 Sunday in a pair of home games. On Saturday at the Civic Auditorium, the Panthers scored eight unanswered goals, including four in the third period to turn a comfortable lead into a blowout. Taylor Colbow had a hat trick and an assist for the Panthers, with Michaella Matthies, Kailey McLellan, Cheyenne Grant, Cassidy Siebert and Jenna Kreklewich also scoring. The Warriors actually opened the scoring, with Michaela Sykora breaking the ice 16:13 into the first period. But that was it for Moose Jaw’s offence.

for Estevan. On Sunday at Affinity Place, the Panthers scored three goals in just over four minutes in the second period, and that was all they would need. The first 30 minutes of the game were scoreless, but that changed in a hurry, beginning with Colbow’s power play goal 12 minutes into the second. McLellan made it 2-0 at 13:45, and Jenna Grube added to the lead at the 16:28 mark. Lacy Smith added a fourth goal four minutes into the third period on a power play, but the Titans would get on the board 46 seconds later to make it 4-1. Kreklewich closed it out with the Panthers’ third power play goal of the game with less than four minutes to go. Brianna Cote earned the win in goal, making 11 saves on 12 shots. The Panthers have two more home games this weekend, hosting the Weyburn Drillers on Saturday at 3 p.m. and the Prairie Storm on Sunday at 5:45 p.m. Both games are at Spectra Place.

Giblett, Salaway lead Apex Bruins to split Although a third-period comeback bid wasn’t enough for the Estevan Apex Bruins on Saturday, they rebounded with their fourth win of the year Sunday. The midget AA club split their two weekend games, with a 5-3 loss to the Notre Dame Hounds followed by a 7-5 victory over the Prairie Storm. The Bruins (4-3-1) are now tied for fifth place in the South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League. On Sunday, the Bruins got a hat trick from Kyle Salaway and a goal and two assists from Kaelan Holt en route to the road victory. Salaway scored the game winner with 6:10 remaining in regulation and added an empty netter with 25 seconds left. The Bruins took a 3-1 lead after the first period. Ryley Giblett got them on the board 6:20 into the game, only for Jason Bruce to tie it for the Storm 32 seconds later. Blaine Herzberg and Salaway would score 52 seconds apart later in the period. Holt added to that lead 1:36 into the second period, three minutes before Dustin

Kaelan Holt breaks over the blue line moments before scoring the Apex Bruins’ third goal of the game on Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Notre Dame Hounds. McCormick trimmed it to 4-2. Jared Steier got the Storm within a goal eight minutes into the period, and it stayed 4-3 until Bailey Lonsberry gave the Bruins a bigger cushion with a minute to go. Bruce had his second goal of the game for the Storm at 3:35 of the third, and McCormick got his late in the period, but Salaway’s two goals in the frame se-

cured the win for Estevan. On Saturday, it was a completely different story as the Hounds roared to a 4-0 lead after two periods. In the third, armed with plenty of power play time, the Bruins fired three goals to get back in it, but couldn’t get the fourth one. They would go 2-for-12 on the power play. “The first period, we came out a little flat, and they got two power play

goals, and we weren’t playing that smart. Actually, throughout the game we had enough power play chances, but it never clicked until the third period. It seemed like we were a little too late,” said Bruins head coach Dalton Giblett.

The president of the Estevan Mermaids was honoured with a national award on the weekend. Brenda Lyons was named Synchro Canada’s grassroots volunteer of the year award during the governing body’s annual convention in Halifax. The award is given to the most outstanding volunteer member who has shown dedication and contributed the most to the betterment of the sport for a synchronized swimming club or community. “Brenda’s dedication and enthusiasm have contributed immensely to making the Estevan Mermaids the second-largest synchro club in Saskatchewan,” noted a Synchro Saskatchewan press release. Lyons said merely being considered for the award was “truly an honour. I have received as much back for my volunteer work as I have given. There is not a day that I don’t realize how blessed I am to have this sport in my life.”

and the Bruins took full advantage. Giblett scored just 15 seconds into the third, flying into the goalmouth to hammer home a pass from Holt. Then, 81 seconds later, he fired a shot from the point into the back of the net. “Kaelan Holt made a hell of a pass on the first goal and then Ryley made a good shot on the second,” the coach said. “It’s not like we didn’t have other chances like that. Dylan Lay had how many from the slot and he hasn’t scored yet. Once he breaks that egg, things are going to be happening, I hope, for him.” Holt would make it a one-goal game with two minutes to play, scoring on a short-side backhander on a 1-on-1, but that was it for the Bruins, and the Hounds would add an empty netter from MacLean with 13 seconds left. The Bruins’ next regular season game is Nov. 14 in Wilcox against the Hounds.

The Hounds got goals with the man advantage from Jared Power four minutes into the first and Cam Flinton with 24 seconds left. They got their third power play marker four minutes into the second period when Connor MacLean, as part of a fivepoint night, took a pass in the slot and put it behind Bruins netminder Landon Audet. Notre Dame took a 4-0 lead 10 minutes later on a Ryley Bechard goal from the slot. “If we put an effort in like we did in the third period, we’ll be fine,” Giblett said. “It’s just getting that consistency. In the first two periods, we couldn’t put two good shifts together. We’d have one good shift and then we couldn’t do it for another two or three. It kinda took a little momentum out of the game for us.” The Hounds took a double-minor late in the second period and another penalty early in the third,

McKersie lives “childhood dream” in Bruins debut Not many players can say they’re as born and bred into the Black and Gold as Chase McKersie. The 17-year-old Estevan native started down the trail blazed by his father Dan on Oct. 29, suiting up with the Estevan Bruins for the first time in a 3-2 overtime win over the Yorkton Terriers. McKersie wasn’t the only player in the lineup that night with a dad who starred for the Bruins, as long-time friend and linemate Lynnden Pastachak was his teammate once more. “This has been a childhood dream for my whole life. I’m 17 years old and ever since I (first put) on skates, it’s been awesome watching the Bruins. I got to start tonight, so it was pretty cool,” McKersie reflected. The Yorkton Harvest star was leading the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League in scoring at one point this year and is currently tied for fourth with nine goals and 18 points through 12 games. He didn’t figure in on the scoresheet in his SJHL debut, but Bruins head coach Chris Lewgood was impressed with his game. “We were careful not to play him in situations where he might be uncomfortable, but he did everything we expected of him and he’s progressing really well this year,” the coach said of McKersie. “He’s such a good skater and he always brings a good work ethic, so you can always count on him to make good plays. I think as he plays more games, he’ll just be more comfortable and be able to adjust to the speed of the game. It’s a big jump from triple-A, but as long as he keeps it

simple, he’s not going to have any problems at all.” McKersie said he was “pretty proud” of what he did with limited ice time. “I don’t usually play centre, so it was different. I really had to try hard to not screw up. But I had fun. I really did.” Pastachak, who scored his first SJHL goal Oct. 24 in Flin Flon and added his second during McKersie’s debut, said it was nice to be reunited with his old partner in crime. He said they had played together since peewee AA. “Playing with him that last year I was in Yorkton, it was a good experience to play with each other. (We were) not even on the same line but just to have him on the bench, it was good energy.” McKersie added, “Usually it’s me passing to Lynnden and him scoring the goals. We didn’t get a try tonight, too bad. Look out next year.” With Dan McKersie (1986-90) and Kevin Pastachak (1983-86) both among the best players in Bruins history, it means a lot to the two kids to play for the Bruins. “To play where our dads played, it’s just unreal to get that chance and play with each other. Even playing with each other in Yorkton there … we just bonded with each other and played off each other and everything went good from there,” Pastachak said. The two played together in midget AAA with the Harvest last year, with Pastachak finishing fifth in league scoring with 58 points and McKersie chipping in 29. Lewgood said the two forwards, along with defenceman Josh Rieger, are the top 1996-born prospects in the

LeBlanc scores seven goals for Chargers

The Estevan Power Dodge Chargers continued their hot start to the year on the weekend, winning both of their games to run their record to 5-0-1. The Chargers remain in first place in the South Saskatchewan Female Hockey League’s bantam A division after defeating the Wood River Ice Cats 11-0 on Saturday and the Moose Jaw Warriors 5-2 on Sunday. On Saturday, the Chargers scored five times each in the first and third periods at the Civic Auditorium. Megan LeBlanc was dominant for the Chargers, scoring seven of their goals, including hat tricks in the first and third periods. Allie Butler and Makenna Morrison each added a goal and two assists, with Tionna Nashiem and Ashton Magotiaux also scoring. Sunday’s game was more of a challenge, but with five different players scoring for Estevan, they pulled out another win. LeBlanc, Butler, Magotiaux, Araya Wheeler and Kamryn Friers had the Chargers’ goals, while Lybbi Robert scored twice for the Warriors. Ashlyn Taillon was in goal for Estevan in both games. The Chargers play again on Sunday, hosting the Regina Cougars at 5 p.m. at the Civic Auditorium.

TS&M Bruins go 1-2-1 Peewee Bruins drop pair

After winning their first game, the Estevan TS&M Bruins couldn’t find any more success at the Graham Tuer Bantam AA Challenge in Regina on the weekend. The Bruins would finish with a record of 1-2-1. They won their first game 2-0 over the Prairie Storm on Thursday. Wyatt Haux scored eight minutes into the first period and Josh Skjonsby’s short-handed marker with 44 seconds left in regulation added some insurance. Ethan Veroba earned the shutout, stopping all 29 shots. Later that day, the Bruins were dumped 9-1 by the Interlake Lightning, with Skjonsby scoring their only goal midway through the

third period. Wyatt Bear (3), Travis Bennett (2), Leif Mattson (2), Blaze Senden and James Maxwell fuelled the Lightning’s attack. Jeremy Dumaine stopped 17 shots for the Bruins. In their third game, the Bruins fell 5-3 to the Saskatoon Maniacs. After a scoreless first period, the two teams exploded for six goals in the second, with the Maniacs taking a 4-2 lead. They then traded goals in the third. Luke McLeod, Tauran Simonar-Hayes, Eric McNeilly, Brody Vogel and Keegan Randell scored for the Maniacs, while Haux, Jayden Davis and Colton Schell tallied for Estevan.

Atoms split with Swift Current After being blown out 7-1 on Saturday, the Estevan Gem Well Bruins dusted themselves off and earned a 6-4 win on Sunday, splitting a two-game homestand against the Swift Current Broncos. Tayce Miller (two goals, one assist) and Parker Bell (one goal, three assists) led the atom AA squad to the victory on Sunday. Clay McKersie, Boden Dukart and Benjamin Wagstaff also scored for Estevan, while Wyatt Wilson, Ethan Murdoch, Davis Hunter and Dayne Feicht replied for Swift Current. The Bruins scored three times in the third period, including goals from Dukart and Wagstaff that came 16 seconds apart to give them the lead for good. Saturday, meanwhile, the Bruins scored first but the Broncos kept scoring after that. Miller had the lone goal for Estevan less than nine minutes into the game. Cash Arntsen (2), Murdoch, Wilson, Feicht, Noah Wills and Shaye Wall powered the Broncos’ offence.

Veroba made 26 saves for the Bruins. The Bruins’ final game was a 3-3 tie against the Swift Current Raiders, with Jayden Davis scoring his second goal of the game with 14 minutes left to pull out the draw. Haux scored Estevan’s other goal, with Tyde Hutchinson (2) and Hunter Lamb countering for the Raiders. Dumaine had a stellar outing for the Bruins, stopping 38 of 41 shots. The Bruins are at home for a pair of games this weekend, hosting the Prairie Storm on Friday and the Saskatoon Bandits on Saturday. Both games start at 8 p.m. at Affinity Place.

They were right there in both games, but ultimately the Estevan Sherritt Coal Bruins suffered a pair of onegoal losses in Swift Current on the weekend. The Broncos defeated Estevan 5-4 on Saturday and 3-2 on Sunday. The peewee AA club now sits in fifth place in the six-team South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League, with a 2-5 record. Saturday’s loss was particularly tough, as the Broncos scored three unanswered goals in the third period, including the winner by Aaron Toews with just 50 seconds to play. The teams traded goals in the first period, with Toews scoring his first of three goals barely a minute in, followed

by Alex Von Sprecken’s marker at the 15:44 mark. The Bruins quickly took the lead in the second period, thanks to Josh Romanyk’s goal less than two minutes in. Tristan Seeman would make it 3-1 on a power play at the 14-minute mark, but the Broncos got that one back with a power play goal of their own, coming from Ryland Hornung with 80 seconds left in the period. Cole Brooks scored for Estevan to restore their twogoal edge five minutes into the third period, but the Broncos’ comeback began shortly afterward. Reed Jacobson made it a one-goal game again nearly seven minutes into the period, followed by Toews’ power play goal less than two

minutes later. On Sunday, it was Swift Current leading after two periods and the Bruins unable to catch up. Rhett Evjen and Beau Larson staked the Broncos to a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes, with goals less than four minutes apart. Von Sprecken would get the Bruins on the board at 11:40 of the second, but Reed Jacobson’s power play goal for Swift Current with 37 seconds left in the frame made it 3-1. Kaiden Tuchscherer got the Bruins within a goal with 6:45 left in regulation, but it was too little, too late. The Bruins don’t return to league action until Nov. 23, when they visit the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Bruins five-game streak snapped ⇠ B1 with three seconds left in regulation to force overtime in a game Daae acknowledged was a bullet dodged. “I think we were pretty lucky tonight, to be quite honest,” he said. “(Zach Douglas) threw it back down low. I was up high, so I looked and there were eight seconds left. Then I was just praying Pasta would throw it out and I got pretty good wood on it and I think it clipped his shoulder a bit and just got the top corner,” Daae said of the tying goal. Austin Roesslein scored the shootout winner in the eighth round. Lewgood’s evaluation of his team’s effort was not flattering either.

THE BANK?

“We played literally just good enough to win. That type of effort doesn’t win you games very often. Like I said to the guys, good teams find a way to win, but you just can’t make a habit of winning that way.” Hudson Morrison had the Bruins’ other goal late in the second period. Ben Greenaway gave the Stars their first lead five minutes into the game when he threw the puck in front of the net and it went off a player and in. Reed Delainey made it 2-0 just 55 seconds into the middle frame, putting a rebound past Bruins starter Brett Lewchuk moments after a Douglas giveaway kept the puck in the zone. Meanwhile, the Bruins had a flurry of player personnel moves last week, most notably the acquisition of 20-year-old defenceman Tanner Clark from the OCN

Blizzard (MJHL). Clark, a former Flin Flon Bomber and Humboldt Bronco, was the futures from the Roger Tagoona trade last season. The Blizzard fought to keep Clark because he was not with the team at the time of the trade, but after both sides made their case before the Canadian Junior Hockey League, he became Bruins property. “To be honest, this process began close to a month ago and we’ve been battling in the boardrooms on the wording of the futures deal,” Lewgood said. The Rosetown native has 12 points in 16 games with OCN this year, and had 58 points over the last two seasons in Flin Flon. “He’s a big strong guy, moves the puck really well, that’s something we can stand to improve on and he’s a natural defenceman who can quarterback our power play,”

Legwood said, noting that Kosloski can move back up front on the power play now. The deal puts Estevan back at nine 20-year-olds. They had dealt defenceman Leighton McLachlan to Nipawin on Thursday to deal with precisely that issue after adding rearguard Nick Egan recently, but now they are up to nine again. “He’s a guy we certainly weren’t happy about having to move, because he’s such a quality character guy, but when we stacked them up, he was the odd man out,” Lewgood said of trading McLachlan. Ben Johnstone strained a joint in his shoulder on Saturday, which buys the team some time to decide on which 20-year-old to move out. Meanwhile, 18-year-old left winger Darcy DeRoose left the team to join the WHL’s Everett Silvertips last week.

Brand new season begins Sunday for Riders

Well, here we go. After a tumultuous regular season for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the playoffs are finally here. The Riders will host the B.C. Lions in the 2013 CFL Western Semifinal Sunday at 3:30 p.m. in a battle of 11-7 teams. What a road it was to get here! And really, the regular season was only batting practice, a warmup for the main event, but it was scrutinized endlessly along the way. Agonizingly scrutinized. You can’t really blame people around here for being skeptical about their team.   The Riders aren’t exactly on a roll heading into the post-season, having gone 3-6 in the final half of the season, and they are

Rod Pedersen Rider Insider carrying a two-game losing streak into the tournament. Maybe that’s why there were as many as 15,000 tickets left for the playoff game as of this past Sunday. “It’s a brand new season,’’ Rider head coach Corey Chamblin said defiantly following Saturday’s 30-26 last-minute loss to Edmonton, a game in which the Riders rested top guns Darian Durant and Kory Sheets. Of course Chamblin’s right, and it would be a disservice for anyone to look back now. Should the Riders have had more wins in 2013?

Possibly. In fact, probably. But no one was going to touch the 14-4 Calgary Stampeders anyway, and now the Stamps sit at home with the luxury of a first-round bye and await a visit from either the Riders or Lions in the West Division Final. No, it’s all about looking ahead right now for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but not too far ahead. A showdown in Cowtown in two weeks is a tantalizing match-up for the Green and White but they have a stubborn B.C. squad standing in the way who, judging by their record, are every bit as good as the Riders.  They’re just a lot younger. The only question mark for the Roughriders as we sit

Vipers get first victory The Estevan Vipers earned their first win of the season on Sunday, doubling up Moose Jaw 8-4. The victory came one day after the female peewee A team lost 12-1 to the Regina Capitals. Jordan Gilroy and Marci LeBlanc each scored twice against Moose Jaw at the Civic Auditorium, with Jaycee McLellan, Tasia Trobert and Taya McKersie adding singles. Crystal Wale had a hat trick for the visitors and Vanessa Knox scored their other goal.

Ajya Hegland stopped 28 shots for the Vipers. Estevan coach Lonnie Haux, said referee Ryan Eggen and linesmen Quinton Davidson and J.D. Gervais worked a good game. “I say this because it’s hard to get young officials and they did a good job for such a young crew. We need to support them somehow if possible.” On Saturday, McKersie had the lone goal for the Vipers, with McLellan earning the assist. Myah Battersby was in goal.

on the cusp of the playoffs is the status of slotback Chris Getzlaf, who led the club in receiving in 2013 with 1,045 yards. Getzlaf missed Game 18 with a knee injury and we’re told his status is 50/50 for the playoffs. That’s huge but if necessary, the Riders still have the underutilized Geroy Simon and Rob Bagg at their disposal. Wouldn’t it be something if Geroy torched his former team in the playoffs just like Jason Clermont did in double

Calgary Friday night and Benevides said they now have “data” on each of them. But who’s kidding whom? It will be a hunch, not data, which determines who’s behind centre for the Lions come Sunday at the Mosaic Madhouse. Oh the intrigue!   See you Sunday.

overtime of the 2010 western semifinal in Regina? Things are setting up nicely for the scenario we foreshadowed way back in the spring.

Allan and Joyce Klesse, aka Singin’ Sam and Silly Sally, didn’t quite hit the high notes, much to everyone’s delight at the Comedy Night in St. Paul’s United Church auditorium on Nov. 1.

Comedy night provided laughs and cash for shelter project There were more than a few groaners and moaners, but that was to be expected, and in fact, groans were encouraged at Comedy Night. The homemade event, featuring a cast of dozens of amateur actors and jokesters, was done in the spirit of fun and frolic and the Warm Welcome program that provides shelter for Estevan’s homeless or those who have temporary housing insecurities. The event, staged in the St. Paul’s United Church auditorium, which also plays host to the

shelter during the winter season, attracted a nearly full house of 200 patrons who laughed, chuckled, giggled, smiled and yes … groaned along with the cast members who had been directed and cajoled into their performances by director Marguerite Gallaway. Practically all of the proceeds from the evening are to be directed to the Warm Welcome program. The evening featured a preperformance dessert offering (with the price of admission) and an opportunity to mingle with the

performers that included emcee Jim Pratt (aka Jim Dandy) along with vocalists of challengeable quality Allan and Joyce Klesse and some forgetful and forgettable lyrics from Stone Broke Butch McLean. There were gossipy moments for Ardelle Kuchinka and Cindy Burham and sweet moments for Donna and Lawrence Burnard. There were other tripping over stripping moments too. Additional talent took to the stage in the form of Rev. Brenna Nickel, who was also host pastor

for the frolicking night as well as Heather Vermeersch, George Kuchinka and Tania Andrist. The Warm Welcome program, it was noted, is led by St. Paul’s, as well as the Salvation Army. The program is now seeking volunteers to help them administer and manage the shelter program that is being expanded to include all seven days of the week, this year from Dec. 1 through to March 31. The shelter spaces will be provided by both St. Paul’s, and the Salvation

Army this year. A training session for volunteers is slated for Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. to noon at St. Paul’s United Church. More information may be obtained by contacting the Salvation Army at 306-634-2074. Those who volunteered last winter stated they experienced no diffi culties with accommodating the homeless patrons of the program and the service that included a morning breakfast snack to help the clients get on with their day in a positive manner.

Celtic Tenors ready to treat Estevan audience They can make themselves feel at home in any venue, whether it be an intimate assembly hall or a huge concert theatre. The Celtic Tenors will be in Estevan, performing at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church on 12th Ave. on Nov. 18. The trio of powerful voices, who offer up a program that transitions classical music to crossover folk songs and contemporary music, will take to the stage at 7:30 p.m. The concert is being brought to the community by the Estevan Arts Council, and it features the voices of the trio who go by their first names of Daryl, James and Matthew. They have established themselves as the most successful crossover artists emerging from Ireland into the North American musical and entertainment scene. The Celtic Tenors’ fifth album was

recently recorded in the Hollywood Hills and features a collection of North American songs by writers such as Stephen Foster and Bob Dylan. The trio has worked with the Grammy Award winning team of Steve Lindsey, Dillon O’Brien and Dave Way. Their previous album sales have topped the one million mark and they are now engaged in a full international touring schedule after having their music top the charts in the United States, Canada, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The trio, while comfortable in any venue, is also able to adjust to all types of accompaniment such as live bands and symphony orchestras or, they can move a concert along a capella using their incredible voices and Irish charm. Advance discount tickets are available at Henders Drugs and admission tickets will be available at the door on the night of the concert.

The Celtic Tenors, will entertain an Estevan audience on Nov. 18.

Trinity Tower news happenings Peggy Bolton Correspondent

Gladys Flaaten of Weyburn, Sask. and Dan and MaryAnn McDonald of White City, Sask. spent Saturday May 12 with Virgil and Ethelda Anderson. Dan and MaryAnn attended the funeral of Lillian Mantei held at Trinity Lutheran Church, Estevan, Sask. Visiting May 15 and 16 with Virgil and Ethelda Anderson were Pastor Larry and Kay Glaeske of Assinaboia, Sask. We are all thinking of you Lorraine Ollenburger and hope things are going better for you. We are missing you. Some of our residents took in the entertainment at the United Way Telethon and many watched it on TV. I had the privilege of working at it as a volunteer, what a busy time! This telethon did not just happen; a lot of hard work is put in by a very dedicated committee. I watched knowing that some were going on three hours or less sleep and they were all there hoping to meet or beat the goal. Young children were involved and the performers were excellent. The goal was not met but it was not due to lack of enthusiasm and dedication from all involved. If you get a chance to volunteer next year I guarantee a fun time and you will be treated like a queen/king.

Our birthdays are Marj Fowler on Nov. 1, Leona Selk on Nov. 2 and Kay Wanner on Nov. 6. Happy Birthday young ladies. Freddie and the Freebies got our toes tapping on Oct. 23. We so enjoy their music and thank them for entertaining us. Yvonne Steinke attended the 60th reunion of her Grade 12 graduation at LCBI in Outlook, Sask. on the weekend of Oct 19. LCBI is a high school and bible school located in Outlook; they focus on many activities such as sports, drama, choir, etc. They would welcome new students. Yvonne really enjoyed visiting old friends at the reunion and her family in Saskatoon. I found this item in the notebook given to me by Susan Widenmaier and think it is worthy of sharing. I am guilty of whining instead of counting my blessings. Forgive Me When I Whine Today upon a bus I saw, A lovely maid with golden hair. I envied her- she seemed so gay, And oh I wished I were so fair. When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle. She had one foot and wore a crutch, But as she passed, a smile.

The momentum of the train brought the truck and train into town. The occupants of the truck were both taken to hospital for treatment. Until next week Midale and area, have a great week!

Oh God, forgive me when I whine, I have two feet, the world is mine. And when I stopped to buy some sweets, The lad who served me had such charm. He seemed to radiate good cheer, His manner was so kind and warm. I said,” It’s nice to deal with you, Such courtesy I seldom find.” He turned and said,” Oh, thank you sir.” And then I saw that he was blind. Oh God, forgive me when I whine, I have two eyes- the world is mine. Then when walking down the street, I saw a child with eyes of blue. He stood and watched the others play, It seemed he knew not what to do. “Why don’t you join the others dear?” He looked ahead with out a word, And then I knew he couldn’t hear. Oh God, forgive me when I whine, I have two ears- the world is mine. With feet to take me where I go. With eyes to see the sunset glow. With ears to hear what I would know. I’m blessed indeed the world is mine. Oh God, forgive me when I whine. Oh God, forgive me when I whine. We wish Susan Widenmaier get well wishes and we are looking forward to having you home. W also wish fast healing to “Chicken wing” aka Luverne Bod and “Big foot” aka Gen Kvamme. Our monthly potluck was held Oct. 30. A very tall spook also attended. Peggy Bolton attended a very informative MS seminar in Regina Oct. 25 and 26. Please remember our veterans on November 11. We owe our freedom to them and we do not want to forget ever. Until next time, God Bless and Keep Smiling!

Obituaries

Gladys Mary Hannah November 1, 1927- October 29, 2013 It is with profound and deep sadness that we announce the passing of Gladys Mary Hannah on the morning of October 29th, 2013. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Lorne Hannah; daughter, Myrna and her husband, Donald; grandson, Scott his wife Angela and her two great grandchildren, Carson and Natalie; granddaughter, Kristin, and grandson, Jarrett and his partner Madeline. Gladys was born in Oxbow on November 1st, 1927 to Francis and Beatrice King. Gladys was predeceased by her sister, Muriel Smith (King) and brother, Gordon King, and survived by her brothers, Albert and Robert King and sister-in-law, Lois King. Gladys was also very close with her nieces and nephews, and will be remembered fondly. Gladys and Lorne were married on September 9, 1950 at the family farm at Frobisher, Saskatchewan. Gladys lived the majority of her life in Estevan where she truly enjoyed being an active participant in the community. Gladys was a quietly dedicated volunteer for numerous organizations and events and was a member of the Royal Purple for her lifetime. In recent years Gladys and Lorne moved to Yorkton, Sask. in order to be closer to Myrna and her family, but her heart was firmly rooted in the community of Estevan and her family from the Oxbow and Frobisher area. Gladys passed on her passion for sports to her family from playing baseball when she was younger; to curling into her 70’s, but her favorite sport was unquestionably hockey. Lorne and Gladys were season ticket holders of the Estevan Bruins for over 40 years, and at games over the years she could be overheard sounding more like an NHL scout than a grandmother. Gladys will be missed by all those who knew and loved her, but perhaps most by her grandchildren whom she perhaps loved most of all. She was Grandma Hannah to many outside her family as well. Gladys’ devotion will never be forgotten. We will forever love and remember Grandma Hannah (GG). A Celebration of Gladys’ Life was held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 2 in the Chapel of Hall Funeral Services, Estevan with Doug Third officiating. Interment followed at Souris Valley Memorial Gardens, Estevan. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan in memory of Gladys Hannah. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Hall Funeral Services, Estevan. Rose Madeline Malaryk Jan. 20, 1934 – Oct. 29, 2013 Rose Malaryk, late of Estevan, Sask. passed away in Estevan on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at the age of 79 years. Rose was born on January 20, 1934 on the farm southwest of Torquay. She attended Lucky school east of the farm with her brothers and sisters. After her oldest sister, Margaret was married, Rosy moved into Estevan with them and attended ECI high school. On October 13, 1954, Rose married Karol Malaryk and moved onto the King Street lot , where she lived on until her passing. Her marriage produced 6 boys, Terry, Brian, Garry, Darrell, Rick and Kevin. Rose’s house was always full and she was surrounded by people her whole life. Her humorous side came out often with many jokes she knew and told that kept everyone laughing. On June 15, 1991, she lost her husband Karol, and sadly ten years later on June 15, 2001 her baby son Kevin. In her later years she loved playing bingo, going to the casino and playing cribbage with her son Rick and his friends. She loved spending time at the Legion with her many friends. Rose will be missed and never forgotten. Rose’s memory will be forever cherished by her children, Terry (Kim) of Torquay, Sask., Brian of Calgary, Alta., Garry (Jackie) of Estevan, Darrell (Lori) of Estevan and Rick of Estevan; 12 grandchildren, Carla (Doug) Van De Woestyne, Kayla Malaryk (Brandon), Terresa Weeks (Aaron), Terra Weeks, Ryan Malaryk, Keegan Malaryk (Kristen), Torie Malaryk, Jenna Malaryk, Adrian Malaryk, Jase Malaryk (Nicole), Mellisa Burkholder and Jesse Malaryk; 9 great grandchildren; her sister Margaret Friess of Estevan, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Creighton Lodge weekly news Judy Pratt correcpondent Here it is, the last week of October and believe it or not, there are still a couple of flowers with blooms on them! The rest of them have been pulled and the yard is now ready for a long winter with a moist blanket of snow so our multitude of bulbs that we planted will be flowering in May! With the help of Gord Stevenson, Ray Cossette and Pat Glasser, we transplanted more peonies and other perennials plus boxes of tulip and daffodil bulbs. It’s going to look like Buchart Gardens around here next summer! Thanks to all of the kind folks in the community, Jonas Weinrauch, Wilma Ward, Genevieve Fichter, Dave Hoffort, Liz Michel and Nancy Kowalchuk to name a few who brought donations of garden vegetables. We received lots of tomatoes, squash, zucchini and carrots from so many people and some who dropped it off but didn’t leave their name. So thanks to everyone for thinking of us. We were well entertained this month with the music from Freddie and the Freebies, Bob Olson, Ella Messer, the Lamplighters, Ross LeBlanc, the Church of Christ Singers, Trinity Lutheran Ladies and the Piano students of Jane Heska and Anita Kuntz. It was a wonderful month and we want to thank all of the people who give of their time and talent to come to the Lodge and play and sing for us. We want to congratulate the United Way on their successful telethon this year. Some representatives from the United Way came to the Lodge for coffee and snacks and we presented them with the money we collected from all the residents. Creighton Lodge is a member agency of the United Way and benefit greatly from the annual donation we receive from them. They have a wonderful network of volunteers who work diligently for the telethon and also for the Day of Caring. We were happy to have a couple of friends come to the Lodge for dinner this month. Two former residents, Flo Pho and Ray Holmes popped in for a meal and a visit. It was sure nice to see them again. We also took a road trip in the SMILE van to Main-

prize Manor in Midale to visit four of our former residents. We saw Norma Armstrong, Gladys Stromgren, Mabel Hacke and Florence Pho. They served us the most wonderful dessert and coffee and we had such a nice visit with all of them. We kept up our physical fitness with our regular exercises provided by Audrey Dupuis, Monica MacKenzie and our new Volunteer, Nicki Pelletier. We are so fortunate to have these ladies commit to our program so we can keep nimble. Worship was held every Sunday thanks to the Ministerial Association organizing the different churches to conduct services for us in the afternoon. Thanks to all of the Ministers and helpers who work to do this for us. We appreciate it very much. We had an awesome program put on by the Torquay Lutheran Ladies. They sang and read to us and then treated us to a lovely snack. Thank you to all of you for that lovely evening. The Laureate chapter of Beta Sigma Phi held their meeting here in October and delighted us with decorating our lounge with fall and Halloween decoration. What a nice lift that was for us. Thank you to all the ladies who helped out. We can’t forget to thank our loyal Bingo caller Joan Wock and our fill in caller Marlene Grube for calling Bingo every Wednesday for us. We love to play Bingo and so appreciate them coming to call every week. Also our weekly visits from Christina Wock and her two dogs are something we really look forward to. We said goodbye to two residents as they moved on to nursing homes. Helen Turner and Grace Blondeau will be missed by all the staff and residents of Creighton Lodge. We wish them both well in their new home. We have welcomed new residents Erling Rothe and Ellen Weinrauch to our Creighton Lodge family recently. We hope they are settling in well. I guess that’s it for this month. As we enjoy the last few days of this wonderful sunny weather we can prepare ourselves for the cold weather and dig out some of those sweaters and quilts that we’ve packed away. Oh, and we better start thinking of Christmas shopping — it’s just around the corner!!!

Focus on faith North Portal happenings

By Rev. Brenna Lea Nickel When I moved from Philadelphia to Saskatchewan in 2011, I was surprised to find that the most difficult adjustment wasn’t the minus 40 winter temperatures. Instead, it was the darkness that settles in this time of year making for dark commutes and a general desire for hibernation. Darkness is traditionally thought of as a place of vulnerability, a scary place, a place where we can’t see what is around us. The Christian tradition usually counters our natural fear of darkness with the promised light of Christ, light that cannot be overcome by the darkness and brokenness of the world. Yet, this summer, I heard pastor and author, Barbara Brown Taylor speak to the potential of darkness – both literal and metaphoric – for us to discover something new or to encounter the Divine in a new way. Throughout the Bible, God is often at work in the dark: God shows Abraham the stars in the dark, brings Nicodemus out in the middle of the night, and is at work in the darkness of Easter Saturday bringing resurrection from death. Brown Taylor pointed out how in the cycles of darkness we all experience, and in

these big moments of darkness, the light of God is even more pronounced because of its contrast to the darkness around it. These are our “Aha!” moments, moments when we experience inexplicable and completely unexpected joy. These are the times where we learn something new about ourselves and the world around us. To be clear, though, it’s not that God desires us to be in suffering or darkness, especially ongoing, systemic suffering, but it is to say that the splendor of God can be seen in those times more profoundly, and can begin to draw us out of the danger and vulnerability of the darkness. So during the darkness of this season, we may feel like the writer of Psalm 130 who says, “My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning,” and this waiting may be related to the actual darkness, which weighs us down, or simply to a spiritual darkness. But I would invite you to consider what new way you may encounter God during this time. What light are you seeking after, exactly? What needs to be illuminated for you? Be comforted and assured then with these later words from Psalm 130: “For with the Lord there is steadfast love.” May it be so for all of us.
