Community was the recurring theme of Wawota Sportsman’s Dinner

Mary Moffat marymoffat@sasktel.net The rink in Wawota was filled with community minded people on Friday, May 25 as the Wawota Forum Sportsman’s Dinner welcomed guests Doug Sauter, Don Koharski and Amber Holland. After a wonderful prime rib dinner, catered by Rylan and Cindy Weir, folks settled in to hear from the guest speakers. Doug Sauter was the very able Master of Ceremonies for the evening and wasted no time getting the evening started. Amber Holland took the stage and shared some of her favourite memories over the years. Her first Sportsman dinner was in Holdfast in 1993 after the World Juniors, where she met curling legend Sam Richardson. He taught her that the best speech is like a mini skirt – short enough to keep their attention but long enough to cover the important parts. It is normal for Holland to be either speaking either with Riders or NHL’ers. She says they are popular opposite guest speakers – large vs small, male vs female and that she always gets to speak first! Holland grew up in Dilke, SK on the family farm, where her father was blessed with three daughters, but was just one shy of a curling team. She began curling in 4-H and her community club was Bethune, which was a three-sheet club, compared to the two-sheet club in Dilke, which only had natural ice. Her first provincial junior was with her sisters, playing lead at age 14. On a humorous note, she says her turning point was when she fired her Dad as her coach when she was 16 and again when she won the Nationals as Skip at the age of 17. Her curling career has had a few teams; Olympic Trials appearances; several provincial appearances; and as an alternate player at Scotties and Trials, all of which set her up for where she got to at the peak of her career. After taking a few years off, Holland is curling competitively with a goal to represent Saskatchewan at the Scotties, not chasing the Olympic dream. Holland shared memories of her team from 2004 to 2012, developing a team with very little experience, the struggles with performing, successes, fires, snow, fog and mechanical issues, becoming and being Team Canada. Attending the Denmark Worlds was a new experience for the team, since curling didn’t really have a lot of fans over there. The only time the place was packed was when the Prince of Denmark threw the opening stone. As a matter of fact, they would honor a team every draw and play their National Anthem. When it was Canada’s turn the song wouldn’t play, and a group of approximately 20 fans stood and sang “O Canada”. While in Canada bagpipes are the norm to march out to for games, in the playoffs in Denmark they played pop songs by the BlackEyed Peas and Lady Gaga! Celebrity status was different in Europe compared to Canada. After losing in the finals, Holland was approached by a woman holding a piece of paper and pen. Feeling pretty down about losing and wondering what she would say to the woman she thought was seeking an autograph, she quickly discovered it wasn’t going to be an issue. The woman was a Doping Control Officer!

Everyone benefits from a Second Chance By Mary Moffat


A stone home built in 1901 housed a family until the 1970’s, and then raccoons, bats and other critters made their way into its walls. The lathe and plaster were falling in, there was water in the basement and it smelled so bad, yet even this broken down, damaged and almost worthless property held a hidden purpose. Donated to Choose Life Ministries, Shelley Boyes believed the 160-acre property near Gainsborough had plenty of room to build another home, but the board and God disagreed with her. The house was gutted right back to the stone walls and volunteers were thrilled to discover that the rafters and beams were built from cedar and were in excellent shape. The ceiling was raised, plumbing and electrical installed, donated Bibles were placed inside the walls and scriptures were written on the beams and

2 x 4’s and door posts. This building is now the Homestead for Hope, which offers a six month residential program for women 18 to 29 years of age. The Christian 12step program teaches life skills, fitness and nutrition and boundaries to women who are seeking freedom from life controlling issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, depression, eating disorders, unplanned pregnancy, physical and sexual abuse and self-harm. The Homestead of Hope was born from a tragedy in the Boyes family. In 2006 their oldest daughter died in a roll-over on May Long weekend. Their two younger daughters spiraled out of control after their sister’s death, seeking solace in drugs and alcohol. Fearing the loss of one or both of the girls, Shelley searched for help, dragging them kicking and screaming into rehab. They offered a clinical two-week or 30-day fix, but didn’t deal with the heart issues, and no lasting changes occurred. After

finding a ministry in the United States that was offering what she was seeking for her girls, Boyes founded Choose Life Ministry and chose similar programming to develop the Homestead for Hope. To help fund the ministry, Boyes opened Second Chance, which has grown into three thrift stores, located in Carlyle, Estevan and Fort Qu’Appelle. It is estimated that they cycle 200 to 300 items of clothing, household and jewelry per day through each store. Each store employs a full-time manager and 2 to 3 part time staff, along with many volunteers. They sort and display items donated to the store using six different colored tags. Every week a different colored tag goes on sale at half price and then any remaining items are pulled off the racks and donated to Community Living or the Canadian Diabetes Association, ensuring the stock remains fresh and new. The flamboyance of Flamingos that

From Front page - Wawota Sportsman Dinner Coming home to view the World Men’s in Regina, Holland was once again a celebrity. As she entered early to get a good seat, she was greeted with applause from the long lineup at Tim Horton’s. She loved the attention but quickly learned to sit at the top of the arena, because people were a little less likely to make the extra effort to climb the stairs for an autograph. Sometimes getting to the washroom was difficult, as everyone wanted to visit with her as she made her way across the seats to an aisle, and one excited fan followed her all the way into the ladies’ room before realizing his mistake. The embarrassment didn’t stop him from waiting outside the entrance to get her autograph though! During her Team Canada year, she discovered that although she was proud to be on

the team, there was a different feeling when another Saskatchewan team was there. It was strange to be wearing the maple leaf while feeling that the wheat sheaf was where her heart belonged at that event. Holland shared that curling has changed: the brooms, the competitions, the money and fame compared to national pride, and don’t get her started on the mixed doubles game. After sharing lessons learned and who taught them to her, Holland said, “Community is special and community doesn’t really have borders or geography. The curling community is a special community and once you are in it, it is hard to leave it, which is one of the reasons I wanted to come back to compete. My best friends came from that community and really good people are part of

that community - players, fans and teammates. I know that your community here is no different than any other community and you will achieve your goals, not only in fundraising but in keeping your community strong today and well into the future.” Guest speaker and former NHL official, Don Koharski was up next and he shared many stories about his years as an official with the WHA and the NHL. He was employed for 42 years by the National Hockey League, 32 years on the ice and 10 years in middle management, mentoring and coaching officials. worked 1,882 regular games, 265 playoff games and 11 Stanley Cup finals before retiring. While the stories were aplenty and very entertaining, I could never do them justice. You really had to be


there. However, the one thing that really stuck with me was his statement about where he came from. While I am paraphrasing, Koharski reminded us all that you will always be from the community you came from, no matter where you go and what you do. So be proud of it, go back to it, and give back to it, because that will be the most important thing you can ever do. Small communities are built by those people who work hard to keep it going, just like everyone attending this event. (See more photos in this week’s Observed At on page 7)

Quote of the Week . . .

“I have a memory like an elephant. I remember every elephant I’ve ever met.” - Herb Caen

Positive steel outcome may not happen elsewhere By Murray Mandryk We recently received some great trade news on the steel trading front. Now, if only the news could be as good on the canola and oil trading front. Unfortunately, solutions to these issues may take considerably tougher to fix. The good news is that U.S.’s 25-per-cent duty on Canadian steel and 10-per-cent duty on Canadian that was imposed by President Donald Trump nearly a year ago have now been lifted came as welcomed relief. This is very good news right here in Saskatchewan. While aluminum is more of an issue in Quebec where low hydro electric rates make its production more feasible, steel is an issue that goes well beyond the Hamilton area. Regina’s Evraz Steel, the old Ipsco that that started out as Tommy Douglas Crown corporation and later became a successful privatized enterprise, has long been a major contributor to Regina’s economy and the Saskatchewan economy as whole. “It’s a weight lifted off their shoulders,” said Mike Day, president of USW 5890 after hearing of the news of Trump’s lifting of sanctions. “It’s less stress. Everybody’s smiling.” This was a hard-fought win that required the federal government to apply retaliatory measures on U.S. steel and aluminum and other key U.S. exports from states that happened to have Republican Senators supportive of Trump. All it all, it was $16.6-billion in Canadian countermeasures against the Americans. But perhaps the biggest factor was the need for Trump to secure his much-vaunted United StatesMexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). While the agreement was signed, it was not ratified, largely because of the Canada’s legitimate frustrations over these steel tariffs that were applied over the paperthin notion of American national security. It has been a year-long and often bitter fight with what’s become a very difficult Trump administration. Truly, dealing with the Americans has not been easy for Canada or any nation. But as tough to get these steel tariffs removed, other problems may be even tougher. We likely have a bigger problem with China over canola and now other products. And then there are the problems of our own making. As bad as Trump and the protectionist Republicans have been, we are still dealing with a democracy that applies democratic principles to things like trade agreements. Moreover, with the Canada-U.S. economy as integrated as it is, it was always exceedingly difficult for Americans to separate interests. Evraz, for example, has steel plants on both sides of the border. Steel for vehicles crosses the 49th parallel multiple times before becoming a car is finished. Dealing with China is far more difficult and complex. As was addressed in this space earlier this month, of the 20.3 million tonnes of canola that Canada grew in 2018, 10.9 million tonnes came from Saskatchewan. And about 40 per cent of that canola was exported to China that purchases about 60 per cent of all canola imports throughout the world. And while Premier Scott Moe has called for reciprocal trade action that proved successful in the U.S. steel dispute, there is not really the same opportunity with the Chinese. We have a massive trade deficit with China in the neighbourhood of $49 billion a year. Let’s give credit where credit is due and respect that the federal Liberal government did a good job of limiting the steel trade war. Notwithstanding Conservative Opposition leader Andrew Scheer’s criticism, it’s hard to imagine how we could have fared much better. But let us also accept the federal government must do more to firm up trade relationships. We must focus on getting all products _ including oil and gas _ to market. We need to win these battles wherever and whenever we can. And smart governments try to win these wars before they start.

Finding the real treasures I love pretty baskets and boxes. All shapes and sizes. My family rolls their eyes when we are out shopping knowing they’ll find me standing in front of unusual or colorful ones wishing I had room for them all. What could I possibly need with another? Rest assured I could find a purpose. This of course is in opposition to the chain of events suggested by professional organizers who enShelley Luedtke courage people to sort through their belongings first and then determine what storage is needed. For me it’s not a need to choose the best storage system—it’s all about liking pretty containers. I recently went through some mementos acquired over time because I had new thoughts for storing these treasures. But something different happened. When I was in university I was hired by the school’s Communications Department. The day another student and I began our summer job we were shown office space that was rather bare. No desks or chairs. We were pointed in the direction of a storage trailer and told we could take anything we wanted to set up an office. So off we went treasure hunting in a storage unit where desks, tables, chairs and cabinets were piled several feet high. We couldn’t help but laugh as we climbed over and around furniture to see what might be in the next pile and determining if it was functional, a good fit for the space, and most importantly, if we were willing to haul it across campus and up a flight of stairs. We set up our office and became rather amused as we fielded question after question about what was going to happen to the furniture when the summer came to an end. Fulltime employees wanted to put dibs on it. Items no one had wanted and were relegated to a trash heap were now seen as valuable. Two department heads even dropped by claiming rightful ownership come September on behalf of their department. Something they didn’t even know was there was now what so many wanted.

As I poured over items in my mementos boxes recently I was struck by two things. One, I already had exactly what I needed to re-organize them and two, I found things that were so special I tucked them away and forgot they were even there. What we find if we go looking can be quite remarkable. There’s a feeling of discomfort, perhaps even angst, when talking about the direction we are going, be it socially, politically or culturally. Ethics, standards and conduct seem to be in a constant rhythm of disruption, and we lament what seems to be a decline in propriety, decorum, and even basic civility. But sometimes, when you go looking, you will find exactly what you thought might have been lost. But you need to look. Look past the pile of rubble, the mounds of stuff, the torrent of uninformed rhetoric and noise of dissension, and you can find something quite lovely. It might have been pushed aside but it can be found, retrieved, and put to use once again. We can’t wait for someone else to do it. It’s up to us. Once we do, we might find that people will see it and want it, too. When I retrieved my long-forgotten boxes I came across treasures that have no business being tucked away: a copy of the sermon my dad preached at my Confirmation that spoke of faith amidst increasing challenges, a letter my mom tucked in a graduation card that highlighted character and integrity, and notes from friends that reminded me of the ideals and hopes we held precious as we moved into adulthood. All contained thoughts that are more timely than ever and ones that need to be put into practice now, not tucked away as untouchable. Kindness, compassion, generosity--true treasures-and yes, ethics, standards and civility are not lost. Some days they may be harder to find but they are most assuredly amongst us. The great thing is that when we bring them out and put them on display others will see their value and want them as well. The best storage system of all has nothing to do with pretty boxes but everything to do with remembering what matters most to us and keeping it front and center. What we treasure are the things we need to ensure others can find in us. That’s my outlook.

Financial Focus Managing Your Money Will you give it to the kids? Aging is inevitable and as you get older, the desire to leave a legacy to your kids grows stronger. You’ve done well in life, your estate will be substantial, and you want to do everything you can to ensure it will be insulated from undue taxation and distributed exactly as you wish. Yet you don’t have an up-to-date Will or, perhaps, you don’t have a Will at all. You’re far from alone. Many Canadians do not have an up-to-date Will, or even a Will at all. There are a lot of reasons why that is so – ranging from not being ready to make vital life decisions to trying to avoid family issues.

But a Will is a necessary foundation of any estate plan. It designates how your estate should be distributed in ways that will protect your family and reduce the taxes levied against your estate. If you die without a Will, then the distribution of your estate may not be in accordance with your wishes as it will be subject to the intestacy laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside. So, the place to start is by talking with your family to find out what they expect and to explain to them what your wishes are. Once you’re all on the same page and you know how you want your Will to be structured, here are some

Paws & Claws

other estate planning considerations: Have a Living Will that provides direction for your care in the event of illness or disability. Name an Executor (sometimes called a Personal Representative, or liquidator in Québec) who will settle your estate according to your documented wishes. Name a Guardian for minor children or other dependants. Set aside Liquid Assets to pay for taxes, debts, the costs of settling your estate and/or other obligations. Consider establishing a Trust to provide ongoing

management of your assets on the terms you specify, and potentially reduce probate fees. Clearly identify your Beneficiaries for all your registered investments, TFSAs, and insurance policies. Provide a comprehensive list of Financial Assets including your bank accounts and locations, insurance policies, investment accounts, and other financial information. Revise your Will and estate plan following any major life event such as a marriage or divorce, birth of a child, death of a spouse or heir, property purchase or sale, or change of residency.

When you have a Will and estate plan in place, you’ll avoid difficulties and costs later – and you’ll have peace of mind. Talk to your lawyer and accountant along with your professional advisor who can keep everybody on track with your wishes for your legacy.

Questions to ask before fostering an animal

Too often, animal shelters and pet rescue groups take in more animals than their facilities can truly accommodate. Animal fostering takes the strain off these shelters, and provides pets with a safe environment while waiting to be adopted. Before temporarily opening your home to a dog or cat in need, ask yourself these questions. • Is everyone on board? Make sure all the humans in your home are comfortable interacting with the new animal. If you

have pets, make sure their vaccines are up to date and that they’ll be okay with welcoming a newcomer into their home. • Is your home petproof? Your foster animal won’t be used to your home and may get into things they shouldn’t. Protect your belongings and the foster animal by making sure your home is safe and your valuables are out of reach. • Are you prepared to do some training? Foster animals may come to

you with behaviour issues. You’ll probably need to spend time training the animal to get him or her ready for adoption. • Can you love and let go? It’s likely that you’ll become emotionally attached to your foster pet while you live together. It may be hard to let them go once they’ve been adopted, but you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you made a difference in their life. If you’re ready to take on the challenge of fostering an animal, call your local shelter today.

charged. • We responded to a fight outside an establishment where one individual was challenging others to fight. Someone finally took up the offer and won the short battle. EMS was dispatched to check on the loser (in more ways than one) and the winner was later located and lodged. This was not because they had been in a fight, rather because they were intoxicated and uncooperative with the police. The moral of the story is just because you are a winner, it does not mean you are not a loser. • Members assisted Carlyle Fire Department with a vehicle fire. • Several intoxicated individuals were becoming confrontational. Upon arrival of the RCMP one individual chose to be arrested and lodged. OK, they did not choose, rather they chose by their actions. • Members received a call of an intoxicated individual causing problems at a residence. Previous to our arrival they left and our involvement was no longer required. • STOP, that is stop moving the stop sign which is attached to a ce-

ment block in Redvers. The stop sign is there for safety. Please stop moving it. • We have a complaint where someone vandalized a vehicle by writing on it with paint. The vandalism is being investigated by the RCMP, however, the poor spelling is an issue to be taken up with the school system. Maybe our vandal should have used their phone to “spell check” first. • We had several other calls regarding intoxicated individuals and liquor over the long weekend. Conservation Officers, RCMP and EMS were busy. Several individuals found there was a room at the “Inn” for them. Our guards were gainfully employed this weekend. • A cabin was broken into, however, we unfortunately have no evidence to follow up with. There was also a break and enter while the home owner was in the residence. Our Forensic Identification Section from Yorkton is assisting. • One individual has been using another individual’s credit card. We have a suspect and we

This is also being investigated. • If you hit an animal with your vehicle and it is still on the road please remove it. It may not have an affect on your semi, or your pickup, however, when a small car hits a dead beaver there will be extensive damage. If the animal is larger like a dead bear we can be looking at injuries or fatalities. Please think of others before yourself sometimes - wait, if everyone did that we would likely not need the Police. • We had several calls of erratic drivers and although patrols were made, not all of the drivers were located. We truly appreciate the calls. • We had a report of a possible impaired driver and they were arrested as they were pulling into their garage. Samples of 120/110 mg% were obtained, the vehicle was seized, even though it was in the garage. The driver was also charged for driving while suspended and having open liquor in the vehicle. Apparently the caller and the RCMP were the bad people here, rather than the drunk that was driving. • A driver was stopped and provided a sample of their breath which resulted in a 72 hour suspension, however, due to a previous suspension this was increased to 21 days. This was one of three driving suspensions issued over the last week. • One of our traffic Members had his ALPRS go off.

cessed and released for court. • Members issued approximately 25 liquor tickets over the weekend. Most were for minors possessing liquor and liquor in a vehicle. Over and above the liquor tickets we issued approximately 45 tickets and 60 warnings. • It should be noted that our Members used quite a bit of discretion as it relates to these “liquor tickets”. Members did not venture into the target rich area of the “campground”, where the youth had their tents, rather they dealt with those walking around and driving around. • Tickets were issued for driving with undue care and attention - $280, minor possess liquor - $360, possess liquor in a vehicle - $360, consume liquor other than a private place $250, fail to wear seatbelt - $175, drive with an obstructed licence plate - $150, drive without a licence - $150, fail to comply with licenced restriction - $150, cell phone use - $280, use licence plate on wrong vehicle - $175, fail to move to the right when approached by an emergency vehicle - $125, tinted windows - $115, fail to produce registration - $100, fail to dim headlights when passing another vehicle - $125, operate unregistered motor vehicle -$580, fail to stop at stop sign - $230, Drive at a speed that is greater than reasonable and safe - $205, exceed 60 km/hr when passing an emergency vehicle - $334 and the most expensive speeding ticket was for $570. • Warnings were issued for keeping liquor in a vehicle, speeding, minor possess liquor, use licence plate on wrong vehicle, operate an unregistered trailer, fail to produce registration, fail to stop at a stop sign, speeding, brake lights fail to emit red light, fail to produce drivers licence, fail to properly wear seatbelt, drive vehicle with unrestrained passenger, drive with an obstructed licence plate, failure to properly secure licence plate, fail to properly display licence plate, and fail to comply with licence restriction. • Inspection notices were issued for inadequate mud flaps, repair or replace windshield, remove window tint, and inadequate headlights.

Bears are coming out of the woods Mary Moffat


Hey, Boo Boo? What have you got in that pic-a-nic basket? While that may bring back fond memories of Yogi the Bear in the cartoons we all grew up with or watched with our children, picnic baskets were not the food of choice for local bears in recent weeks. Brian Meyers of Kenosee Lake was the first to report a bear sighting and take photographs of a black bear snacking on the bird and squirrel feeders in their yard, during the wee hours of May 16, 2019. This was quickly followed by the sight-

ing of a black bear in the early evening of May 18 on Okadoca St in the village of Kenosee. While Conservation Officers attended, the fate of the bear has not been confirmed at the time this paper went to press. On May 22, Jack Toothill was watching the evening news when he spotted a bear wandering about the front yard of his cottage at Cannington Lake. He quickly snapped some pictures and called the conservation officers to report the visitor. There is no doubt that this bear is not the same one spotted in Kenosee, given that it is a cinnamon colour, but it did

to share the same taste for bird seed. According to Toothill the bear has since been captured and transported to a less populated area. There appears to be no doubt that there are bears in them thar hills, as yet another was spotted ln the ditch along the highway near White Bear Lake Resort Tuesday, before turning back into the woods. It would appear that either there is an abundance of wildlife this year, or people are just paying more attention, but either way, be careful out there as the warm weather brings out more than just people to enjoy the great outdoors.

Theoren Fleury was healing people at Envision luncheon By Ana Bykhovskaia Estevan Mercury Born in Oxbow this not very big man at some point of his life was an NHL Stanley Cup champion. Ten years ago he published a book named Playing with Fire: The Highest Highs and the Lowest Lows. This best-selling autobiography was telling his story of sexual abuse. Later it led to him becoming an expert in the field of relational trauma as he realized that helping others to deal with trauma and heal was much more important for him than anything before. On Thursday Theoren Fleury spoke to a crowd of about 300 people that was celebrating Envision Counselling and Support Centre’s 25 years in the community. Envision’s silver anniversary luncheon was held at the Power Dodge Curling Centre. Envision’s executive director Christa Daku opened the event. “As you know the impacts of trauma can impact families and communities for many generations to come. A special thank you to Theo, for joining us yesterday (for the trauma professional workshop

in Weyburn) and giving us a two-day celebration, and honouring us with your presence, your healing journey experience and your encouragement to continue to do what we all heartedly believe in in these communities,” said Daku. As the organization continues to forge ahead it was important to celebrate the impacts they’ve had on the communities in southeast Saskatchewan, where throughout past 25 years probably every person either received help and support from the Envision or knows at least one person whose life was affected by this non-profit organization. Envision’s assistant executive director Lynda Rideout also talked about the role the community was playing in the organization’s work through years. “The support that we receive here, in the southeast is phenomenal, and I would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the families and friends that support our Envision staff… Your support and ongoing encouragement make it so much easier for us to do the important work that we do day after day,” said Rideout. And then Fleury took

guests on an emotional trip, uncovering his personal story and experience of abuse, addictions and healing. As he was talking about trauma, forgiveness and hope guests would sit still in silence and some had tears in their eyes. And then Fleury would make the audience laugh, as he entwined some jokes making his speech very informal and touching. He also shared his moment of truth when he realized the impact his book had on people. “I showed up in the biggest Indigo Chapters store in all of Canada, three-stories-high in downtown Toronto on Young Street … I walk through the front towards the book store and there are 400 people standing on with my book. And I’m like, ‘What’s the hell are all these people doing here?’ This is strange. I’m not Wayne Gretzky; I’m not Mario Lemieux. I’m a decent, good hockey player, but I’m not those guys. Why are there 400 people at this book signing?” shared Fleury. “I start signing books. Out of the corner of my eye, I spot this guy in line. And he’s got my book tucked against his chest. His face is bur-

ied, looking forward. He is walking very slow. I was like, ‘Hm, I wonder what’s up with that guy.’ So I follow him all way in the line, he gets to the front of the line, puts the book on the table, looks me in the eye and says, “Me too.’” Since then Fleury dedicated his life to working in the field of trauma, mental health and addiction, all of which he personally experienced and was able to overcome. Through his own life he learned that forgiveness was one of the key points in the healing process, since, according to his words, only forgiveness can set an abused person free from a traumatic experience. Fleury also noted that healing has to happen physically, emotionally and spiritually. Standing on the stage he was talking about being raped numerous times by his junior hockey coach Graham James. But there was no more shame not only in his words but also in his gestures, mimics or posture. Not only he was healed, but he also became a true healer. As he was guiding the crowd through his life path of trauma, healing and recovery, a


Stanley Cup champion, Olympic gold medalist, World Junior champion and expert in the field of relational trauma Theoren Fleury was a guest speaker at the Envision Counselling and Support Centre’s 25th anniversary luncheon. (Photo by Anastasiia Bykhovskaia) lot of people would reflect on their own past. The silence that grew in the building as he was talking, according to Fleury, was a sign that safe space was created in the audience. He used his own vulnerability to achieve that, and that’s what’s needed to get the magic of healing to happen. His passion for helping others and his approach to healing through creating safe space, listening and giving people hope strongly resonates with Envision’s dedication to communities they serve, and a lot of his activities

in this field are compliant with Envision’s work. “I would say that the Envision is the epitome of vulnerability and home space. That’s why they’ve been around for 25 years. It’s because they change people’s lives, give people hope. Because trauma, mental health and addiction is the biggest epidemic on the planet. I have not run into anything bigger than this,” said Fleury. He is on the road 250 days a year, and all he sees is pain and suffering, which he believes are unnecessary if we learn forgiveness.

When remembering hurts By Mary Moffat The Observer Where were you when the world stopped turning? While that song brings back memories for those who lived through 9/11 for others it is just a song. For Canadians who lived through April 6, 2018, remembering hurts. While the memories of 9/11 fade, it will be harder for Canadians to forget about the tragedy that struck our province and our country. I don’t mean to diminish the horror or the pain felt on 9/11, but not only does April 6, 2018 hit close to home geographically, there are very few Canadians who don’t have a close link to someone who plays hockey. I am aware that it is now May and the first anniversary has since passed, but May is also Mental Health Awareness Month. Because of that, I want to remember people who are often overlooked, those who are lumped under the umbrella of Emergency Services. Police, dispatchers, 911 staff, firefighters, Emergency Medical Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, Primary Care Paramedics, STARS, Doctors, Nurses, Lab Technicians and hospital staff. Days like April 6 are tough on them. Actually, every

day is tough on them. In our community we are blessed to have a RCMP detachment, an ambulance service, a hospital just miles away, and a VOLUNTEER Fire Department. No, I am not yelling at you, well, maybe a little bit. While I know many of the EMS team and have the greatest respect for all of them, there is a special place in my heart for the members of the Fire Department. Simply put, it is because they are volunteers. For the majority of those in EMS this is a full-time paid position, but for our local fire fighters it is a voluntary position, held in conjunction with their full-time jobs. Yet they remain on call, 24 hours a day, ready to leap into action when the call comes in. They leave their wives and children in the middle of the night, the middle of a snow storm or a day at the pool, to come to the aid of their community. Over many years I have been blessed to get to know many of the EMS team, and they have a tough job. They deal with people in the worst moments of their lives. Each one, when pressed, will tell you that there is always a picture, a smell, a sound, a memory for every tragedy they have ever attended. I feel that their jobs are made even more difficult in smaller communities, such as ours, because they live here

Pause for Reflection

and come into close contact with the citizens. Many times, they may never see those people again, but other times they are someone they are familiar with. When the outcome is less than ideal and you encounter the families, how do you deal with that emotionally? While I don’t mean to diminish the difficulties faced by these same jobs in larger centers, I can’t help but wonder how often you might know the person you are helping. When the outcome is a good one, the feeling must be incredible, but when that isn’t the case, how do you deal with it? According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a mental illness caused by trauma. It is a reality for every member of Emergency Services. While many seek help, there are many who struggle. The stigma is one reason, but for many it takes a long time to come to recognize that it is PTSD is affecting them. So, as we move past the first year of the Humboldt Bruins tragedy, I ask that every time you hear a siren or a news report of yet another tragedy, remember to thank someone in Emergency Services for everything they do. You might just be the only bright spot in a dark day for them, and after all, they are just human too.

Friends who would carry you to a miracle Name four friends who would carry your bed where paralyzed from sole to head you lie with pangs and scars outstretched. Name four friends who would plan and plot to land you near the sacred spot: the Healer’s Hands, the Feet of God. This beautiful poem “Paralyzed” by Rita Simmons continues asking you to name four friends who would raise you above the house, crack the roof and let you down to Jesus. (Matthew 9:1–8) Name four friends who would fix their gaze on the Man who cures and the man who’s saved. Can you name four such friends? Besides being an awesome tribute to friendship, this poem challenges our belief in miracles and our faith in Jesus. Miracles are denied by some scientists. Even the Catholic Church does not officially recognize many “apparent” miracles. In the debate over miracles we hear from French professor Luc Montagnier, a recipient of the Nobel Prize in Medicine (2008): “When a phenomenon is inexplicable, if it really exists, then there’s no reason to deny it.”

Montagnier says of the the miracles of Lourdes, “There is something inexplicable” there. If the phenomenon exists, what’s the point in denying it? It should be studied, not denied. Many scientists make the error of rejecting what they do not understand. Astrophysicist Carl Sagan said, “The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.” Of the miraculous healings at Lourdes, Montagnier says, “I don’t have an explanation for these miracles, and I admit that there are healings that go beyond the current limits of science.” (Magnificat January 18, 2019) Let me share some fascinating miracles related to us and attributed to Mary the Mother of Jesus. One evening in 1856, Father Riou in the diocese of Puy-en-Velay (France), was returning from a journey on horseback, saying the Rosary. “A violent storm broke out—the night became so dark that the priest could no longer guide his horse. At a turn of the road, above a steep cliff, he suddenly fell into the void—a frightful fall of about 80 feet! His coat, hat, and cassock were in shreds, his horse

instantly killed as its head dashed on a rock … but Father Riou rose up to his feet unscathed!” (A Moment with Mary February 4, 2019) If this seems too hard to believe, let me share a more recent New York Times story about window washer Alcides Moreno, who plunged 47 stories and survived. Moreno’s brother was killed in the event and Alcides needed 24 pints of blood, was in a coma for 17 days and woke up and spoke on December 24, 2007. I believe in miracles and I believe in the miracle of friendship. I can name four of my readers who would carry me to the feet of Jesus. I am blessed. As to the debate between science and miracles, let me end on the lighter side. Doctor Bloom was known for miraculous cures. One day a little old lady, completely bent over and leaning on her cane, went into his office. A half hour later she emerged, walking erect. A woman in the waiting room exclaimed, “It’s a miracle! What did that doctor do?” She answered, “Miracle, shmiricle. He gave me a longer cane.”

wedding is scheduled to take place at the farm on July 28. Congratulations and best wishes Shandi and Robbie. Finally got a nice little rain put a stop to field activity for a day. When I went out to my garden the next day to continue planting, there was a little moisture under the topsoil when one made a row. Now if the wind would go away and Mr. Sun comes out to stay

warming things up my garden may just take off. Oh, oh – did you cover your flowers etc. last night (Sunday) we did get a nip of frost, glad that I took a few minutes and covered what I had out by the house and closed the door on the shed so those plants should be okay. Damnation, but I don’t like frost now as one can’t always cover up the plants. The little birds must get cool

toes too – it’s sure is nice to see the different birds coming into the yard, taking a look around and enjoying the feeders. Please remember folks to keep me posted on any happenings going on in and around Alida as well as within your family, either call me (306-443-2496) or text (306-485-8561) or e-mail (g.cowan@sasktel.net).

Maryfield Villa News


Submitted by Janet Mark Our Circle of Friends shared Memories of Mom this week. Mariann remembered Mom’s borsch and always laughing. Gladys was one of ten kids, devouring buns and dough dogs made on a wood stove and making up parcels for soldiers. Ralph Mills had a stepmom, an R.N., from whom he was always learning. She quietly gave him a “talking to”. Ralph Burke’s home was 13 kids, “too good to be true”, whose Mom begged, “Do not all leave home at once”. Ruth Holmstrom’s mother had been crippled by polio and was a hard worker, like so many others. Marie’s mother adopted an abused child who could not speak and their mother taught her to speak with mirrors. Violet and Ruth Dennis remembered hard times and hand me down clothes. Clifford’s mom died, leaving 4 girls, but he had a wonderful stepmom. Fred recalled a jolly, joking mother who sang Russian songs as she spun wool for their socks. Janet’s mother had breast cancer, and at 95 all she wanted was to see Ontario again, so they went. Aileen remembered her mother’s Christmas puddings. Margaret Penner’s mother was very resourceful. She taught Anita, who was a special needs child, to do quilting. Joyce spoke of her mother as a good manager and a perfectionist who always showed her family her passionate love for them. Visitors during the week from Wawota were: Luther Boehmer, Sherry Wilson, Wendy Greenbank, Ingrid Hansen, Sharon Kennett. Joan and Sherry Stewart visited Aileen Belva; Jackie Toms, Cadence and Taisley visited with Grace Toms, as well as Teneille Toms from Medicine Hat. Dallyn and Trina Lasko and Theo Holmstrom were here from Canora. Also, Berna Parker and Joyce Roe from Moosomin. The United Church held a communion service, with Roy Bortolotto and Fran Balls serving. Charlotte Kovach brought a Friday night movie.

Drama in the aisles ing something to three acquaintances who happened to saunter by. The clerk was gracious. “Never did believe in that diet, anyhow,” he consoled, stocking the flimsy cardboard display case.” With blazing face and no milk, I fled to the checkout counter, paid my bill and raced (carefully) to the safety of home. “For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.” Amen and phew – I head there often!

Funshine II Early Learning Centre Inc. “Where friendships begin”


By Linda Wegner “Whoa” was all I could mutter, swerving sharply to the left. Avoiding this guy took some mighty quick reactions. It was Friday afternoon; the weather was absolutely gorgeous and half the population of our town seemed to be grocery shopping. I’d only come for a jug of milk but as every shopper can attest, one rarely leaves with less than half a cart. Such was the case this day – except that my cart was nearly full and so was the cart that nearly ran into mine. “Sorry,” the driver apologized. “When I get into these places, I’m a terrible driver.” I smiled (how could I not, recalling the near misses I’d precipitated). “Don’t worry about it, I’m a pretty lousy driver in store aisles, too.” Mr. Near-Miss, his wife, and I exchanged smiles and wished each other a great day. “Well done, Linda,” I thought to myself. “You handled that well.” Determined to demonstrate my navigational expertise to staff and shoppers alike, I eased around the corner. No crossing into the wrong lane by this cart! I heard the crash before I saw copies of the nation’s best-selling diet manual slithering between the onions and the potatoes. Mr. Near-Miss’s beaming face loomed over my kneeling form. “Told you I was a lousy driver,” I whimpered, grabbing at books while blather-

Royal Canadian Legion District Rally in Kisbey The streets of Kisbey echoed to the sound of bagpipes and drums on May 25 when the Royal Canadian Legion opened its annual District One Rally with a march to the local cenotaph. A brief remembrance service lead by Richard Krehbiel of Kisbey Branch included the laying of wreaths by Carlyle RCMP Constable Alexa Dubeau for the government of Canada, provincial Legion past president Ken Box for the provincial government, District Commander Darrell Webster for the Saskatchewan Command of the Royal Canadian

Legion, Mayor Calvin Nankivell for the Village of Kisbey and Nora Weightman for the Legion Kisbey Branch. The Bow Valley Air Cadet Squadron 675 from Oxbow provided the piper and drummer. Members of the public attending the ceremony were reminded that many of Kisbey’s surviving World War I veterans arrived home in July 1919; thus, the ceremony marked 100 years of remembrance in the community. The event included more than thirty Legionnaires from Carlyle, Carnduff, Estevan, Fillmore,

Kisbey, Melville, Regina, Stoughton and other centres in southeastern Saskatchewan. Delegates discussed recent initiatives to support Saskatchewan’s military and RCMP veterans as well as to promote remembrance and community well-being in the province. District Commander Darrell Webster and Deputy District Commander Raymond Coderre of Stoughton were acclaimed to their offices. The next District One Rally is scheduled for Regina on May 30, 2020.
