Thankful thoughts for Thanksgiving By: Darcie Khounnoraj As some of you are finishing up your Thanksgiving meal leftovers in soups and sandwiches, we are reminded of the many things we should be grateful for and for the things in life that are the pleasant extras each and every day. Personally, after spending the better part of a day prepping and cooking the turkey and all of the trimmings, I am thankful I don’t have to do that again for another couple months! Being thankful is a reflection of our hard work in our daily lives, a few are thankful for the little things that brighten our days, some are more appreciative of the larger things in life and others are happy somewhere in the middle. It doesn’t matter what we are truly thankful for, as long as we are grateful for the cherished moments throughout our lives! I have been given the opportunity to raise my little ‘turkeys’ in this community with my amazing husband, share special moments with all of you through this newspaper, make precious, memorable moments with my close friends and family... I am truly thankful. Reading several posts throughout the weekend about what people are thankful for, I was reminded how diverse our community is, something I know I am very grateful for. People were grateful for their new babies or the chance to stay home to raise their children during their impressionable

years. Posts reflecting on how life has changed in the past year and goals to keep moving forward. Parents gushed about their beautiful families and their pride for the youngsters as they have grown. Family togetherness, friendships, health and prosperity, vacations, freedom of speech, wine and oddly enough, bacon were at the top of people’s lists! Tammy Joorisity - “I’m most thankful for my kids. They are always supportive, strong, caring and there for me whenever I need them (sometimes even when I don’t realize I do!). I am very proud of them and the adults they have become. Love them more than words can say.” Chelsea Carter - “I’m thankful for every morning I wake up, having a roof over my head, two healthy and happy kids, a loving/hardworking fiancé, friends and the best family anyone could ask for!” Erin Nicholson - “I am thankful for all the amazing people in my life!” Crystal Ennis - “I am thankful for my family, friends and a great community for my little family to grow up in!” Donna Molnar “Thankful for the wonderful family and friends!” Marcy Lowe - “I am thankful for my family, blood and those I’ve picked up along the way... and Dr. Pepper!” Billie Szilagyi - “Thankful for the support of an entire community. The people that lift you up when you fall.” Local businesses in and around Kipling were


10 fascinating facts about wild turkeys

Sonny Montaron of Three Sisters Foods poses with one of the few turkeys leftover from their store following the Thanksgiving Holiday. also very happy with the growth of their business and grateful for the opportunity to provide services to local shoppers and businesses alike. The two grocery stores

in Kipling (Co-Op and Three Sisters Foods) and their busy bee employees shared in prosperity with great sales of produce and turkeys over the past few weeks. Co-Op sold 225

frozen turkeys which is about normal says Bill Meszaros and Three Sisters Foods sold 23 frozen turkeys to local shoppers for their big Thanksgiving celebrations.

Monday marked Thanksgiving in Canada. The first official, annual Canadian Thanksgiving took place on November 6, 1879. In honour of Thanksgiving, here are 10 facts about wild turkeys to gobble up; a species that has been documented on Nature Conservancy of Canada properties in Ontario and Quebec: 1. Male wild turkeys are called “toms,” while females are called “hens.” 2. At the start of spring, male wild turkeys get together in clearings to perform courtship displays. They puff up their feathers, lower their wings, fan out their tails and slowly strut, while making their famous gobble sounds. 3. Believe it or not, wild turkeys can fly. At nighttime, they fly up into trees to roost. 4. Wild turkeys were extirpated (locally extinct) from Ontario as a result of habitat loss and overhunting. Reintroduction efforts began in 1984. Turkeys are now a common sight in southern Ontario and Quebec, and they are continuing to expand their range. 5. An adult turkey can have more than 6,000 feathers. 6. The historic range of wild turkeys in Canada was probably limited to southern Ontario and Quebec. Today, scattered populations can also be found in western Canada as a result of introductions. 7. Wild turkeys mostly inhabit forests but often wander into open fields and grasslands to feed. 8. Wild turkeys are not fussy eaters. They feed on hickory nuts, beech nuts, acorns, fruit, snails, worms and amphibians. 9. Wild turkeys can run at speeds of up to 19 kilometres per hour. 10. Certain characteristics of wild turkey droppings, such as their shape and size, reveal turkeys’ gender and age. Female droppings are spiral shaped, while male droppings are J-shaped. The larger the diameter, the older the bird.

5 Ways to boost your mood this Fall For many people, the end of summertime means back to school and back to the grind. Companies launch into their fourth quarter and any summer slack offseason is done. It’s now time to get serious as we close out the end of the year. Between the dips in temperatures, shorter days, work and family demands, many people feel sad to part with summer. Dr. Sanam Hafeez is a neuropsychologist at Columbia University in New York City and she oers some ways to boost your mood as summer fades into fall. Ease into the routine While a lot of people expect to hit the ground running immediately after Labour Day, you should allow yourself a solid two weeks to a full month to get back into the swing of your fall routine. You can’t expect to go from a more relaxed summer mindset into a rushed pace. “A lot of people make the mistake of going from summer ease to

fall hustle and they end up running themselves down leading to a cold. You want to get a realistic handle on the fall routine and make decisions about how much to take on. Planning ahead helps.â€? Go outside and play anyway The fall means a break in humidity and beautiful crisp air. It’s common to go from 30’s to 10-15 degrees pretty quick. You can still enjoy your deck, barbecuing, reading in a lounge chair, having a catch in the yard, or going for a walk in nature. “Get outdoors and avoid spending weekends in hibernation which only makes people feel lethargic and depressed.â€? Get things done that you put o during summer Before the weather takes a turn for the REAL cold and holiday hustle catches up to you, take advantage of the cooler fall temperatures by tending to things like auto repairs, home projects, pet care,

medical visits, and ďŹ nancial assessments. “When we make a decision to accomplish things we’ve put off and then follow through, we feel more in control and this reduces stress.â€? Something as simple as taking a few hours to tidy up the yard, clean out the garage, or get rid of clothes can elevate the mood. Recap the summer with a look back at photos and gratitude At the end of each season, it’s such a great ritual to do a recap. Look back into your social media feeds for the photos posted and memories made. Consider creating a summer photo album with highlights from vacations, pool days, family barbecues, weddings and any other fun you had. Start brainstorming next summer ’s vacation and must-do activities “ Yo u r e a l l y w a n t to move into a forwardthinking mindset instead of

longing for the past. This summer is over and another one will come. Brainstorming with the family on where to go next, is a fun way to get excited about what’s ahead. When we think about possibilities it elevates our mood so grab an issue of a travel magazine and get inspired.� When in doubt, get a makeover Nothing elevates the mood more than a day of primping and prepping. When we are putting the summer clothes away and pulling out the fall clothes, we get to edit our wardrobes and make a list of the new things we want to add. Shopping for new clothes isn’t just limited to the kids heading back to school. A new hair colour or style can also mark the start of a new season in a fun new way. “Self-care isn’t limited to meditation, juicing and massages. Finding that perfect fall jacket, shoes, new shades of cosmetics can do a lot to lift spirits.�

Show Saskatchewan your talent on Telemiracle 43! Kinsmen Telemiracle, “Saskatchewan’s Charity�, is looking for Saskatchewan singers, dancers, bands and entertainers to audition for a chance to perform on Telemiracle 43 to be held March 2 and 3, 2019 in Saskatoon, and broadcast

live on CTV. “Audition weekend is such an exciting time for us. It’s our ďŹ rst real event of the Telemiracle season.â€? says Richard Kies, the Kinsmen Foundation’s Executive Director. “Between Saskatoon and Regina, our

producers watch well over 150 performances. They always have a tough job to narrow that down to around 50 or more that will appear on Telemiracle.� While talent is one part of the criteria, a passion for Telemiracle, the

desire to help others, and a geographic balance among performers are other factors involved in the selection of entertainers that will be on the show. Producer Norm Shuttleworth says, “We want the Saskatchewan Talent on the show to represent

the fabric of the province. I’m always overwhelmed with the quality of talent in this province and also how generously people give.� Anyone interested in auditioning for Telemiracle must register in advance and can do so online at or by calling the Kinsmen Telemiracle oďŹƒce at (306) 244-6400, extension 2. The deadline to register is October 26. Auditions will be held on November 3 in Regina and November 4 in Saskatoon.

Wolseley Mustangs Gearing up for Title Defense By Stephen Scriver Last Sunday returning veterans of last year’s Wolseley Mustangs championship team, as well as a number of hopefuls looking to fill in some holes in the roster, ďŹ nished their seventh skating session in preparation for the 2017-18 Qu’Appelle Valley Junior Hockey League season. The Mustangs are made up of players from towns along the Number One Highway from Elkorn, MB to Regina, and communities north and south. While very few of the skaters made it to all of the sessions due to harvest, job and school obligations, it’s safe to say that a majority of last year’s Mustangs will be lacing on the skates for the Brown and Gold again. Wolseley fans will be pleased to hear that the “Zip Lineâ€? of Dustin Coderre (Grenfell), Brandon Shiels

(Regina) and Cam Maier (Whitewood) will reunite for the coming season. Other names re-welcomed to the fold will be Randy Rozak, still making the trek from Elkhorn, Wolseley products Carter and Tanner Baran and Liam “OT� Tittle, Jared Yeadon (Melville), Dallas Schutz (Neudorf), Wade Roppel (Kipling), Rawley Lingelbach (Lemberg), Cole Hayhurst (Wapella), Tristan Holbrow (Regina), Junior Tawiyaka (Sintaluta), Tyler Krausher (Grenfell) and Brett Petracek (Whitewood). Kevin Kryger (Wapella) and Mackenzie Schoepp (Grenfell) are also back to defend the net for the Mustangs. Joining the veterans in the skates are a number of players who appear eager to help the Mustangs retain their QVJHL and Saskatchewan Junior “C�

titles. When training camp opens on Saturday, October 20th (tentatively) the competition for roster spots will be intense. A preliminary (again tentative) league schedule has been drawn up that will see the Mustangs open their season in Regina on Saturday, November 3rd, with the home opener at Wolseley Sportsplex on Sunday, November 11th at 8:00 pm. The Mustangs Booster Club will be in operation again, at the same price of $50 for all home games (regular and playo), a free game program and 10% o all Mustangs swag. The Booster Club is an even better bargain this season, as game admission has been raised from $3 to $5. A free program will be given with the price of admission. Watch your weekly newspaper for news about exhibition games.

Donations grow for program supporting hockey community While September indicates the fresh start of a new hockey season, the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash last April will leave a lasting impact that few will forget. The SJHL Assistance Program was established immediately following the tragedy. It was born of the recognition that while immediate support to the Humboldt Broncos team members, family and community was important, so too was an anticipated need to support the mental

health of players, families, coaches and volunteers across the league. Co-op was among the first to make a donation to the new Program. The donation from Co-op – which includes Federated Co-operatives Limited, local Co-ops, their members and customers – has grown to more than $768,000. “Through this diďŹƒcult time, we’ve witnessed people come together and support one another,â€? said FCL CEO Scott Banda. “Co-op has always rallied

to support our communities, which is why we partnered with the SJHL on a program that will help people heal across the league and eventually across the Junior A hockey community across Canada.� The immediate concern for players, families, coaches and volunteers across the 12 teams of the league is what inspired the creation of the SJHL Assistance Program. “Knowing the impact this tragedy would

have over the long-term, we started the SJHL Assistance Program to ensure there were resources in place to support our hockey family,â€? said SJHL President Bill Chow. As it seeks charitable status, the program is making progress in its support of mental health ďŹ ve months after its launch through partnerships with

the Canadian Red Cross and Homewood Health. Since being established, the SJHL Assistance Program has raised $1.4 million through corporate and individual donations. The donation from Co-op includes $191,000 from the sale of Humboldt Strong T-shirts at Co-op locations, with additional T-shirt sales of

$70,000 through 22 Fresh and $20,000 at the Country Thunder beneďŹ t concert. The SJHL Assistance Program aims to support healthy communities, ensuring everyone feels safe to get the help they need. To access support services, contact the Canadian Red Cross at sjhlsupport@ or Homewood Health at 1-866-459-4805.

Pause for Reflection by Ken Rolheiser

Why should I love God and give thanks Four rabbis had an argument, and three were in accord against the fourth. “Three to one, majority rules,” they argued. The fourth asked God for a sign to convince the three. The sky turned black, the earth shook, and a deep voice boomed, “HEEEEEEEE’S RIIIIIIIGHT!” “Well,” said the fourth Rabbi. One of the three shrugged, “So, now it’s three to two.” How many times has God spoken to us? How many times has he proclaimed his love? How many times have we failed to grasp it? A father once asked his little girl, “If I was somehow able to go through all the little girls in the entire world and pick out just one to be my very own, do you know who I would pick?” “No, Daddy, who?” was the girl’s honest reply. “I would pick you!” And God has picked you and he has picked me. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5). More wonderful than human love, God surpasses even the love of a mother: “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast… Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” (Isaiah 49:15). The NUMBER 1 reason to love God is that God loved us first! The NUMBER 2 reason for loving God is that even before he created all earth’s beauty for us, he had a plan to

share all Eternity with us. And for that he made us heirs to the Kingdom. Now because God loves us as a parent he gave us some rules to save us. What parent would not stop a child from touching a hot stove? Out of love God commands us to know, love and serve God AND to love our neighbour as we would love ourselves. If we fall short of this ideal, God gave us some other commandments to protect us. God made us, gave us all the gifts of creation and even asks us to pray for whatever else we need. And he wants to live with us forever! Now just in case we didn’t “get it” God has worked signs and wonders for thousands of years. Just for us to better grasp his love. It’s hard to choose which of these signs are most significant, but there is a pattern. The Prophets revealed many of these signs: Moses’ burning bush, his dividing the Red Sea, the Passover… Then there was Elijah… well the Old testament was great, but nothing like the New. Jesus Resurrection! His many miracles we can read about and hear about. And they are still going on. Check out Fatima, Lourdes, St Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, the Eucharistic miracles. Listen to the stories that families experience when a loved one passes to eternity. Consider Art and creativity! Why do we, of all created things, seek beyond reality and existence? Beyond design and function, to beauty and aestheticism? How can we be anything but thankful when we consider the beautiful people God has created, not least among them

Kipling Rec Report Submitted by Susan Hengen, Recreation Programmer Ochapowace First Nation will be hosting the University of Regina Cougars and the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in pre-season exhibition play on Friday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 13 at 2:00 p.m. in the Chief Denton George Multiplex.

Ghostboy, the first of 3 concerts, will perform on Friday, October 26th at 7:30 p.m. in the Kipling Community Centre. This male duo featuring guitar, fiddle, vocals and a mix of songwriting abilities and cover reproductions promises to be high energy and exceptional entertainment. Subscriptions for all 3 concerts are available at Balfour Drugs or with Mona Lynn Stender (306) 736-2263 for $60. Advance tickets for individual concerts are $25; single tickets are $30 at the door. Student (13 years and up) prices for concerts are $10 for single tickets, and children (12 & under accompanied by a parent) are free. Lace up your shoes on Sunday, October 14 and join in the 4th Annual Harvest Hustle in Windthorst! Participants of all ages are welcome to choose from the 5K or 10K

distances, walk or run. There is even a 1K Kids’ event for ages 10 & under, with brunch to follow at the Windthorst Community Centre. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., with the Run/Walk to follow at 10:00 a.m. Proceeds raised will go to enhancing the Lions Playground. Older Adult Fitness Sessions are back on at the Kipling Friendship Club! Come out on Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. for 50 minutes of light cardio and strength, balance and flexibility training. There is no charge to participate, and the benefits are great. One of the biggest benefits of regular exercise in older adults is fall prevention. Regular exercise assists in preventing falls by strengthening muscles and bone density; adding mobility to joints and muscles; improving balance, coordination and agility; and strengthening the heart and lungs and improving circulation. The result is a person who is able to do their day to day activities with less fatigue, discomfort and strain. Do you know of a child that would like to participate in art, dance or music classes, but is unable to due to financial constraints? Creative Kids provides financial support so that all Saskatchewan children and youth have an opportunity to participate in artistic and cultural activities. The next deadline for funding is December 7, 2018, for activities beginning in January. Applications for funding can be accessed at Kipling Campground closes for the season on October 15. Campers may be stored in the Kipling Campground for the off-season, beginning October 15th. Those interested in storing their RV in the Campground are required to register it with Susan (306)736-8440, prior to parking it for the winter. There is no cost to store an RV in the Kipling Campground, however, we encourage all owners to have valid insurance on their units, and to remove them from the Campground by April 30, 2019 or earlier.

Kitchen fires focus of 2018 Fire Prevention Week in Saskatchewan

On October 9th, Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding along with City of Regina Mayor Michael Fougere officially kicked off October 7 to 13 as Fire Prevention Week across Saskatchewan. This year’s theme Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere reminds us to pay attention to areas where fires are most likely to start: bedrooms, living rooms and especially kitchens. Across Canada, cooking equipment is the number one ignition source in all preventable house fires. “The heat from a stove, electric frying pan or other type of cooking equipment can ignite your clothes, the food or oil you are cooking with, or nearby items on your kitchen counter or shelves,” Kaeding said. “Look, listen and learn encourages everyone to look where fires are most likely to occur, learn how to reduce the fire risk, and to be aware so that if there is a fire, you know how to best protect yourself and your family.” “Fire prevention should happen 365 days a year,” Fougere said. “This life-saving topic is taught year-round by our Fire Department and this week is an important time to focus on bringing awareness and education

to the matter. I encourage everyone to take a minute to talk to your kids about fire safety and ensure you have a home escape plan in the case of a fire. Please, be fire safe.” In addition to adopting safe cooking practices, Government Relations Assistant Deputy Minister of Public Safety Duane McKay encouraged everyone to practice fire safety in all areas of their homes year-round. “Every home should have a working smoke alarm,” McKay said. “Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home including the basement and be tested monthly according to manufacturer’s directions.” “Between 2009 and 2015, cooking caused 39 per cent of the city’s structure fires, with more than $8 million in damages,” Regina Fire Chief Layne Jackson said. “All of these were preventable. It is critical that we practice safe cooking in the kitchen and teach our children the importance of fire safety.” Fire Prevention Week is recognized across North America.

Don’t buy a car from a curber – kick them to the curb The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority (FCAA) is warning consumers of the risks of buying a vehicle from a curber, a person who sells vehicles for a profit without a licence. “Curbers pose as private-sellers, often buying salvage or vehicles from various sources,� FCAA’s Consumer Protection Division Deputy Director Denny Huyghebaert said. “They may clean the vehicles, make superficial

repairs and quickly turn the cars around for resale. Curbers operate illegally and often ignore consumer protection legislation which licensed dealers are bound by. Unlike licensed dealers, curbers are not bonded and typically don’t have locatable addresses or approved forms of contract.� Five Ways To Spot A Curber - Ask for a driver’s licence - Compare their ID to the vehicle registra-

tion form (don’t accept a photocopy). If the seller’s ID doesn’t match the registration, be careful, this is a red flag. - Multiple listings - Do you see the same phone number and different names with multiple vehicle listings in ads? You may be looking at a curber vehicle. - Meet at a coffee shop or the mall - Curbers may not want you to know where they live or do business. They often

insist on meeting at coffee shops or mall parking lots to show you the vehicle and finalize the sale. - Cash sales only – Some curbers love cash sales. Cash is hard to track and leaves no paper trail. - Sob story - Curbers may use sob stories to prey on a person’s general good nature and kindness. They will use these stories to rush the sale, using guilt and sympathy to keep a person distracted from evaluating the vehicle properly. Check vehicle history

World Teachers’ Day Patrick Maze, President, Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation In the coming weeks, teachers from all over this province will meet together for discussions on a future vision for public education. It’s all part of Re-Imagine Education, the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation’s effort to prompt a wide-ranging public discussion about the role of our schools. We’re asking teachers and members of the general public to clarify the issues facing education today, imagine what future schools might look like in their communities and come up with a plan for making that vision a reality. Re-Imagine Education is one of three separate

planning exercises in the education sector; Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Education and school trustees are each conducting their own. The fact that three separate strategic planning and public engagement processes are taking place at the same time probably tells you all you need to know about the current state of relationships in the education sector. This is evidence of a fundamental disconnect among government, trustees and teachers. If we are to continue doing our best for students, parents and the broader society, this is a problem that has to be resolved. Saskatchewan’s Minister of Education, Honourable Gord Wyant, is keen to

say he’s met with teachers and “things are well in the sector” (Hansard, May 17, 2018, pg. 4325). A teacher invited to the stage at an August 29th meeting in Saskatoon had a starkly different message for the Minister: The cuts are hurting. Yes, government has put more money back into education. However, it’s still less than the $54 million taken out two years ago. Plus, there is the pressure of added enrollment. The pattern over the last two years is clear: 5,000 extra students, 24 million fewer operating dollars in education. The unmistakable signs of a system under stress can be heard as teachers recite

their lived experiences in the classroom. More students with fewer teachers. Less supports for those with special needs. Teacher shortages in northern Saskatchewan made worse by cuts which limit teacher recruitment and retention plus the cancellation of the NORTEP program. One teacher in Saskatoon said recently that cuts at her school are a drop in the bucket compared to what’s going on in the province as a whole. However, her students have nowhere else to go. “My kids have no back-up plan. It’s heartbreaking.” When it comes to developing a strategic plan for the future of education, teacher voice has been

largely silenced. Most of the major decisions about the future are made by a little-known, but very powerful group of regional administrators known as the Provincial Leadership Team. Their mandate specifically excludes teachers from membership. Making decisions about the future of education without meaningful input from teachers is akin to driving without clearing the snow off your windshield. You don’t know where you’re going, you might not ever get to where you want to be and you’ll likely cause a lot of harm along the way. Witness the extremely modest progress that has been made on the goals set out in the Educa-

tion Sector Strategic Plan. Teachers want to help students fully participate in Saskatchewan’s economic, cultural and intellectual life. Teachers picked this profession because they wanted to do something that made a difference. The theme of World Teachers’ Day in 2018 is Teachers, the heartbeat of public education. In order to bring meaning to that lofty sentiment, teachers in our province must be provided with the resources needed for a growing and diverse student population. They must also be allowed a voice at the planning table. We must also acknowledge their great work and continuing commitment to excellence in public education.

SUMA welcomes funding for Municipal Infrastructure The Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) welcomes the signing of the integrated bilateral agreement between the Province of Saskatchewan and Government of Canada. This agreement

will provide more than $896 million in federal funding to support infrastructure projects in Saskatchewan. “Saskatchewan hometowns are responsible for more than half of all public infrastructure in the prov-

ince. This infrastructure delivers clean drinking water, removes waste, provides transportation, fosters recreation, and more,” said SUMA President Gordon Barnhart. “Funding provided through the new bilat-

eral agreement will help our hometowns maintain and improve the infrastructure that their residents rely on daily, enhancing quality of life in Saskatchewan.” The Government of Canada is investing approx-

imately $308 million in public transit projects, $416 million in green infrastructure projects, $56 million in community, cultural, and recreational infrastructure projects, and $116 million in rural and northern commu-

nity infrastructure projects. Projects funded through the Investing in Canada plan will be cost shared between the federal government, provincial government, and municipalities.

PAMI offers information to producers storing wet grain this fall Given the recent and widespread rain, snow, and cool temperatures experienced across the grain belt, Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) is reminding producers of a number of recommendations to help them minimize the risk of spoilage of wet grain stored in bins. “We know producers are very concerned about the moisture content of their crops going into the bin,” said Dr. Joy Agnew, project manager of Agricultural Research Services at PAMI. “This has been an area of much research at PAMI and although some of our multi-year projects are still ongoing, the data we have already collected on the use of heat in grain drying can be used by producers to minimize losses in wet years like this.” Adding supplemental heat to natural air drying involves two basic steps, she said. The first is to use

the heat to draw moisture out of the grain and into the air that is in the pockets between kernels, and then use moderate airflow rates to move that moist air out of the bin. “A lot of our research has centered on wheat and canola but the physics apply across the board to any crop,” said Agnew. “For every 10° C you can increase the temperature of the air going into the bin, you cut the relative humidity in half. That means you can turn a cold, miserable, drizzly day into perfect drying weather.” The following are some basic recommendations for improving results and reducing risk when storing wet grain. 1. The air moving through the bin needs to be at least 10-15° C for optimal drying potential and should not exceed 20-30° C to avoid high grain temperatures that can initiate

spoilage. 2. Use a fan with an airflow rate of at least 0.75 cubic feet per minute (CFM) per bushel. Anything lower could result in heating of the grain, which can initiate spoilage. And, the higher the temperature increase of the air going into the bin, the more CFMs are required. With supplemental heating, hotter air is not necessarily better as you need to match your target temperature with your fan capacity. If you don’t know your fan capacity (CFM per bushel), go to to learn how to measure or estimate your airflow. 3. Ensure there is adequate ventilation at the top of the bin to allow moist air to escape. That means one square foot of ventilation space per 1,000 CFM. Some bin and fan manufacturers are producing fans specifically designed to move air out of the tops of bins. 4. Rotate the bin con-

tents frequently (every few days) by removing at least one-third from the bottom and auguring it back in the top. 5. Monitor the conditions in the bin. Ideally, the moisture content should be monitored but, at a minimum, monitor the temperature in the bin. When using supplemental heat, the drying rate is considerably faster than with no heat, so keep a close eye on grain conditions to prevent over-drying. 6. The size of the heater should be based on the desired temperature increase (which depends on the ambient temperature and the target temperature) and the airflow rate from the fan, keeping in mind the minimum air flow rate of 0.75 CFM per bushel. 7. Consider investing in thermostatic controls for heaters. The more consistent the air temperature going into the bin, the more

effective the drying will be. 8. Heat transfer efficiency is important. Properly designed systems that are appropriate for the bins and fans are best, and setting up the system properly is key to efficiency and effectiveness. 9. The target temperatures mentioned above are valid for the fall season but when the outside temperature drops below about -5° C, the temperature of air going into the bin should be reduced to prevent damp grain from freezing to the sides of the steel bin. 10. When the grain is almost dry, turn off the heat and cool the grain to below 15° C. Cooling the grain will result in some additional moisture removal (ranging from approximately 0.5% to 2%). Agnew cautioned producers to use care hooking up heating and electrical systems to grain bins as they pose potential safety

risks. She also noted that the main difference among the heating options (propane, natural gas, indirect hydronic, etc.) is operating cost and ease of use. Direct fired heating systems do add moisture to the air entering the bin, but the amount of water added is negligible compared to the water being removed from the bin. PAMI’s on-going research on this topic will better define the minimum airflow rates for use with supplemental heating, the drying rates with different target temperatures, and the energy efficiency and operating costs of different supplemental heating systems. Interim results will be available in 2019 and the study wraps up in 2020. This research is funded by SaskWheat and SaskCanola. More information on crop storage can be found at A

Fall boating - It takes a little more care Boating in the fall offers colourful vistas, quiet anchorages and excellent fishing but it is not without its challenges that necessitate self-sufficiency and taking some additional precautions to keep from running into trouble. “In Saskatchewan, we are fortunate as anglers and hunters, to have many opportunities available during the fall months,” says Darrell Crabbe, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation. “From early-season waterfowl hunting to late-season fishing opportunities, there’s no shortage of excitement available on the water. It is important to keep in mind, however, the weather can change quickly this time of year, so be prepared. Dress appropriately and expect the unexpected when it comes to the weather conditions you will be faced with while enjoying some of these great activities this fall.” The Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) and the Lifesaving Society want to remind all boaters enjoying the fall season on the water to follow these tips to ensure that their excursions are both safe and enjoyable. Before heading out, be sure to check the weather forecast. The mixing of warm and cold air can quickly spawn high winds and waves making it treacherous for small boats. Fog, too, is an issue

at this time of year making visibility difficult. Should boaters find themselves in a fog bank, they should proceed slowly and sound their horn at regular intervals to alert other boaters of their presence. Well into October, daytime temperatures can occasionally be balmy but dressing for the water temperature will help slow the onset of hypothermia should the unexpected happen and the boater find himself in the water. Accidental cold water immersion can be shocking, but people shouldn’t panic. It may take a minute or so to get their breathing under control after the initial shock but they will have at least 10-15 minutes, even in very cold water, to affect self-rescue before they start to lose muscle control in their arms and legs. This is where an approved lifejacket, either inflatable or inherently buoyant, is an essential part of a boater’s wardrobe to keep them afloat after they can no longer swim. In the fall, there are fewer other boats on the water to offer assistance, if needed. Boaters should be sure to leave a float plan with a responsible person on shore who will know what to do if they’re overdue. A marine radio or cell phone will allow them to call for assistance should the need arise. Having a few tools

and spare parts aboard will also allow them to fix minor problems that might otherwise cause them to be stranded out on the water. It’s important that boaters ensure that their boat and engine are in good shape and mechanically sound. Ethanol-based fuel can allow water contamination in the tank. The use of a fuel additive prevents water in the fuel line from freezing which could cause the engine to chug to a halt. If the boat

has portable fuel tanks, it’s a good idea to have a spare on board as a reserve. When boaters head out, they should be wary of reduced water levels that can result after a long, hot and dry summer season. Some of a boater’s favourite shallow water fishing holes may be inaccessible at this time of year. Also, while underway, they should keep a sharp lookout for debris and chunks of ice that could penetrate the boat’s hull at speed.

“Landowners have peace of mind and are supportive of the pipeline on their property”

“Spectacular colours, peaceful solitude and the crispness of the air make boating in the fall a wondrous experience,” says John Gullick, Chair of the Canadian Safe Boating Council. “To make the most of this experience safely, however, boaters need to be extra diligent in their preparations before departing. Most important of these are checking the weather, dressing for the water temperature, wearing a lifejacket and leaving a

float plan with a responsible person on shore who can call for help should the need arise.” Now that fall is here, boaters should make the most of what’s left of the boating season before the cold weather hits. By exercising a little caution and an ability to be selfsufficient when out on the water, they can more fully enjoy nature’s splendour and quiet waterways. Visit for more tips on boating safety.

How do those who live along the Line 3 pipeline replacement route feel about the project?

> Enbridge is replacing its Line 3 pipeline near your community. Here are some ways communities are benefiting: Job Creation Over the life of the project, an estimated 24,494 (full-time equivalent) construction jobs and $1.8 billion in labour income will be generated. Fueling Quality of Life The Line 3 Replacement Program will generate over $500 million in tax revenue and contribute $2.8 billion to Canada’s Gross Domestic Product. The taxes we pay support schools, roads, community projects and other services that sustain our quality of life.

Annette Schinborn CEO, Canadian Association of Energy and Pipeline Landowner Associations (CAEPLA)

“When the Line 3 Replacement Project was announced, CAEPLA was at the forefront with Enbridge in discussing the things that were important to landowners. The reason the agreement we negotiated with Enbridge is so exciting is because it’s all about safety and the environment. At the end of the day, landowners have peace of mind that the protocols that were set in place would protect their land.”

Investment in Community Organizations We are proud to support organizations that promote safety, environmental and social issues within communities. That’s why in 2017 alone, across Canada, we invested more than $15 million in communities near our pipelines to help strengthen community-focused initiatives.

Stay alert: fire safety is in your hands For this year’s Fire Prevention Week, October 7 to 13, 2018, Fire Prevention Canada is endorsing the National Fire Prevention Association’s (NFPA) new theme: Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware — fire can happen anywhere. The slogan identifies three crucial aspects of fire safety and reminds us that fires can occur when and where we least expect them. In recognition of Fire Prevention Week 2018, check out these three key tips from the NFPA for staying safe in the event of a fire. 1. LOOK. Inspect your home for potential fire hazards — such as loose outlets, faulty wiring, frayed electrical cords and unattended candles — and eliminate them wherever possible. 2. LISTEN. Keep an ear out for the sound of smoke alarms. If there’s a fire, you’ll only have a few minutes to escape the

building safely and get to your household’s designated meeting spot. Check your smoke alarms every two months to ensure that they’re working correctly. 3. LEARN. Make sure to learn two ways to exit every room of your house, through either a door or a window. Keep these exits easy to open and clear of clutter. Your household should have a fire escape plan in place and rehearse it at least twice a year. Though many people mistakenly think that a fire could never occur in their own home, mishaps and disasters don’t discriminate. Always be prepared for the worst. If you stay alert and take preventive measures, you and your loved ones are much more likely to stay safe during a fire.

October 7 to 13, 2018


Are your fire escapes accessible? In the event of a house fire, smoke can invade your home in less than three minutes. It’s therefore vital that everyone evacuate the premises quickly. Will your emergency exits allow for this to happen? To avoid hindering your quick departure to safety, make certain that the doors and windows that serve as emergency exits are unobstructed at all times. Put away all items strewn around them (shoes, backpacks, toys, etc.) and be sure not to block emergency exits with furniture or large objects. Also, in winter, carefully remove snow from all doors, balconies, windows and terraces after every snowfall. Make sure your house number sign is kept clear as well. Additionally, you should regularly ascertain that windows intended as evacuation points effortlessly open (that they don’t get stuck due to ice or rust, for instance). And if you have young children, also make sure these exits are easy for them to reach and open. Finally, don’t forget to identify all possible hitches in your evacuation plan. Ideally, set up a strategy that allows for two different paths to get out of each room in your house.

Help this heroic firefighter put out the fire.

Wood heating: seven tips to reduce fire hazards Do you use wood heating? While few things are cosier than a wood fire on a cold winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day, using a fireplace or wood stove comes with a number of safety risks. To minimize fire hazards, and protect your property and family, follow these key tips: 1. At the beginning of each wood-burning season, check your chimney and fireplace or stove before using them. Make sure that your chimney isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t obstructed; that the

stonework, the doorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seal and the seals inside the fireplace are in mint condition; that the refractory bricks inside the woodburner are whole and that the chimney is not rusted or corroded. 2. Store most of your wood outdoors, away from the house, keeping just a few bundles inside at a safe distance from your unit. 3. Get your chimney swept either once a year, or after

burning five cords of wood. This will remove creosote, a highly flammable deposit created by smoke.

6. Clear the space around the fireplace or stove. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave any flammable materials near it and make sure air can circulate freely.

4. Use quality wood. Make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dry and only burn a few small logs at a time to reduce creosote buildup.

7. Regularly throw hot ashes away in a closed metal container with a raised bottom. Place the container on a non-combustible surface at least one metre away from buildings and flammable materials for three to seven days, or until the ash has completely cooled down.

5. Since complete combustion creates less smoke, make sure enough air gets into your fireplace or stove to keep the flames going.

Portable fire extinguishers: making the right choice Used to douse the flames of a burgeoning fire, a portable fire extinguisher is a valuable piece of safety equipment that you should have on hand at home. Do you need to buy or replace one? If so, be sure to look for a fire extinguisher that has the following four features:

2. It can put out A, B and C type fires. In other words, it puts out fires from combustible materials (wood, paper, cloth, etc.), flammable gases or liquids (oil, gas, grease, etc.) and electrical equipment (wiring, electrical panel, etc.). 3. It has a minimum 2A 10B C rating, which means it can put out a 2 ft3 paper or wood fire (2A) and a 10 ft2 gas or oil fire (10B). The letter C means that the

1. It has a seal from a recognized organization such as the Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC).

extinguishing agent does not conduct electricity. 4. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lightweight and easy to use, since the extinguisher wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be of any use if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too heavy for you to wield. Furthermore, check whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refillable or has a limited lifespan.

When choosing a fire extinguisher for your home, make sure you can easily pick it up and use it.

team has developed an innovative method to extract gold from electronic waste. Foley was convinced until almost the very end that their pitch to the Dragonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Den panel had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;a train wreck,â&#x20AC;? especially when panelist

Lane Merrifield got up to confer with others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought that was it. We were getting the boot quickly. Then they came back to say they all wanted in for three per cent each for 18 per cent of the company. It was overwhelming.â&#x20AC;? Dragonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Den provides opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs to pitch their business ideas to the panel of Canadian business moguls who have the money and connections to bring the ideas to fruition. Foley said he pursued the opportunity as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a larkâ&#x20AC;? and applied online because Excir needed investors. By coincidence, some producers of the show came through Innovation Place the following week, and he pitched his concept successfully to the producers. Excir, a U of S-incubated start-up, was founded in 2017 with Foley, former students Loghman Moradi and Hiwa Salimi,

and investor Graham Fritz as partners. The company is based on an innovative, cheap, and environmentally benign solvent that Foleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laboratory team developed in 2016 to rapidly and selectively extract thin layers of gold from circuit boards and other hardware components in electronic waste. Based on scaling up lab results, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anticipated that 100 litres of the recyclable solvent can process up to five tonnes of ewaste at a cost of $200, yielding about a kilogram of gold worth $50,000, Foley said. The new technology is expected to replace standard recovery and recycling methods that use toxic chemicals and heat. Innovation Enterprise (IE), a U of S commercialization office, has been involved from the inception by handling the patenting, company formation, holding a board seat, and working with

the scientific founders to connect them with highprofile investors. Foley describes Chris Bowman, IEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering and physical sciences portfolio manager who has been working closely with Excir, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fifth Beatle in our groupâ&#x20AC;? for his role in showing them the ropes, talking to investors, travelling with them to locate a plant and providing support. Financial details from the dragonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offer are still to be worked out, Foley said, with due diligence required by all. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the dragons or other investors, Excir needs money to hire an engineering company to design and build the reactors so that the processing facilities can be scaled up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we get the m o n e y, w e â&#x20AC;&#x2122; l l p u t o u r heads down, focus on getting this technology off the ground and go silent for the rest of 2018,â&#x20AC;? said Foley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then we will explode with it in 2019.â&#x20AC;?

$1,212,008.24 VLT jackpot awarded in Moose Jaw Saskatoon, SK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is pleased to announce a Vault Breaker jackpot prize awarded by the Saskatchewan VLT program. Shirley Smith of Moose Jaw was awarded $1,212,008.24 after winning the grand jackpot on Vault Breaker at Bugsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Irish Pub in Moose Jaw on September 25, 2018. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was down to my last few credits,â&#x20AC;? the happy winner remembered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spun the machine one more time and it was like a vault opened up, and it spit out a ticket with a bunch of numbers on it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked at the ticket,

but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell if I won $12,000 or $120,000,â&#x20AC;? she continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took it to the clerk and asked, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Is this something?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He looked at me and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You won over a million dollars!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I was completely stunned!â&#x20AC;? The winner said she plans to put her winnings towards her retirement and helping her family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always wanted to win a lottery so I could help out my family,â&#x20AC;? she said. Vault Breaker is a wide-area progressive that links 4,200 VLT machines across the province. There are three mystery jackpot

tiers: the province-wide grand jackpot has a minimum value of $500,000 and pays out before it hits $1.5 million, the regional major jackpot has a minimum value of $5,000 and pays out before it hits $25,000 and the local site jackpot minimum is $100 and pays out before hitting $500. Any of the three jackpot tiers can be awarded when a patron plays Vault Breaker. The province-wide jackpot has awarded winners $4,427,327.41 since June 2017. Vault Breakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s province-wide grand jackpot has now been reset to $500,000.

Government proclaims October as Inclusion Month The Government of Saskatchewan has once again proclaimed October as Inclusion Month in Saskatchewan. Inclusion Month is an opportunity to celebrate the positive difference inclusion has made in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities who are included in the communities where they live. It also is an opportunity to acknowledge the important work that staff and volunteers of

Inclusion Saskatchewan do. “I’d like to thank Inclusion Saskatchewan and all of those who work with people with intellectual disabilities for the work they do,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said. “By partnering with communitybased organizations, we have been able to work toward the implementation of self-directed funding, so people can choose their own supports and

services and invest in supportive housing options for people with intellectual disabilities. This work and the work still to come is helping create a more inclusive Saskatchewan.” For more than 60

years, Inclusion Saskatchewan, formerly the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living, has aimed to ensure people with intellectual disabilities are valued, supported and included, and have opportunities

and choices in all aspects of life. “Inclusion is the power to make a difference in people’s lives,” Inclusion Saskatchewan President Gloria Mahussier said. “It means that all people, regardless of their abilities, have the right to be respected and to belong to their communities. We invite everyone in Saskatchewan to celebrate inclusion with us!” Saskatchewan resi-

dents and communities are encouraged to share their accomplishments and stories surrounding disability using the hashtag #SKDisability. The Saskatchewan Disability Strategy Facebook page can be found at skdisability. For more information about the supports and services that Inclusion Saskatchewan provides, please visit www.

Canadian dairy farmers hit yet again with new trade agreement The Canadian government again secured a trade deal by sacrificing another vital part of domestic supply management. NAFTA will be replaced with a new trade agreement, now called USMCA, the US Mexico Canada Agreement. “Since 1969 Supply Management has awarded Canadian dairy and poultry farmers a fair return for producing sufficient quality and quantity without overproduction. Ever since Canada engaged in negotiating trade agreements the system has been weakened by allowing more production from elsewhere to enter the Canadian market at

prices below the cost of production, an unfair trade practice known as “dumping”,” said dairy farmer Jan Slomp, Vice President Policy for the NFU. The Canadian government has agreed to end Class 6 and 7 milk pricing in the USMCA deal. These discount classes were created recently as a last resort to push back against milk being illegally imported from the US in the form of “diafiltered milk”. This was necessary because the federal government refused to step up with proper border control to stop the imports. Processors used American diafiltered milk as high-protein ingredi-

ent in cheese and yogurt to replace Canadian milk. Class 6 and 7 allowed Canadians to sell high protein ingredients at a price that allowed them to compete with American dairy processors. Now, Canadian farmers are being punished for competing, Americans will again flood the market with discounted diafiltered milk., There will be reduced production on Canadian farms and fewer viable dairy farms in Canada. During TPP negotiations Canada gave away access to over 3.25% of our domestic market in the supply managed dairy, poultry and eggs sectors to the 11 countries involved, with the USA

Crop report for the period September 25 to October 1, 2018 Wet and cool weather continues to slow harvest operations in much of the province, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report. Seventy-three per cent of the crop is now in the bin, slightly behind the five-year (2013-17) average of 78 per cent for this time of year. Twenty per cent of the crop is swathed or ready to straight-cut. Frequent snow and rain have delayed progress in many areas, and fields remain wet. Warm, dry and windy days are needed soon to allow producers to return to the field. Harvest is most advanced in the southwestern region, where 90 per cent of the crop is now combined. The southeastern region has 89 per cent combined, the westcentral region 62 per cent and the east-central region 61 per cent. The northeastern region has 45 per cent combined, while the

northwestern region has 33 per cent combined. Eighty-four per cent of durum, 78 per cent of barley, 76 per cent of mustard, 58 per cent of spring wheat, 52 per cent of canola, 33 per cent of flax and 29 per cent of soybeans have now been combined. Many crops are coming off tough and are being placed into aeration bins and dryers. Topsoil moisture conditions continue to improve with the recent rain and snow. Cropland topsoil moisture is rated as three per cent surplus, 64 per cent adequate, 27 per cent short and six per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as one per cent surplus, 51 per cent adequate, 34 per cent short and 14 per cent very short. Yield estimates at this time remain about average overall, although they vary greatly across the province depending

on the moisture received throughout the season. Spring wheat grades at this time are being reported as 54 per cent 1 CW, 25 per cent 2 CW, 17 per cent 3 CW and four per cent CW Feed. The majority of crop damage this past week was due to lodging from snow and rain. Crop quality has been affected by the recent moisture and downgrading is expected at the elevator. SaskPower reports that there were three cases of farm machinery coming into contact with electrical equipment last week, bringing the total for September to 13. SaskPower reminds producers to take the time to identify overhead power lines and to plan ahead when moving equipment. More safety information is available at Follow the 2018 Crop Report on Twitter at @ SKAgriculture.

as one of those countries. After President Trump took the USA out of the TPP, Canada concluded virtually the same deal with the remaining 10 countries. Now, in the USMCA Canada has given an additional over 3.25% of our market to the USA alone! This is on top of stopping our farmers from competing with the American imports to provide high-protein ingredients to Canadian processors. “This is not a winwin situation, said Slomp. “According to a CBC report, a Trump administration official boasted that they achieved a better deal on dairy for the Americans than the Obama administration have been able to get under the TPP.” “In saying that they support supply management and making

deals like this, the Canadian government is completely two faced,” said Prince Edward Island dairy farmer and National Farmers Union member Doug Campbell. “We take no comfort in promises of compensation,” continued Slomp. “In the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement with Europe, the Canadian government, granted additional access for 17,500 tonnes of European cheese in the Canadian market. In the wake of CETA the compensation packaged offered to Canadian dairy farmers is a boondoggle. CETA shrinks total revenue available to Canadian farmers, yet the subsidy is given to the farmer that expands. To expand when revenue is diminished is a rather reckless business deci-

sion. It is a recipe for pushing more farmers out of business, not compensating them for a wrongheaded trade decision. To add insult to injury, it is Canadian dairy farmers who take the brunt of low prices resulting from the skim milk surplus, while miraculously, processors qualify for CETA compensation package money, which they use to capitalize on the lowerpriced skim milk, as if that alleviates farmer’s losses.” “Successive Conservative and Liberal governments in Canada have protected supply management while causing a death by a thousand cuts”, says dairy farmer Jan Slomp, Vice President Policy for the NFU. “If this is support from a supply managementfriendly government, who needs an enemy?”

October public offering shows sustained interest by oil and gas industry Saskatchewan’s October public offering of Crown petroleum and natu-

ral gas rights held recently, generated $2.1 million in revenue for the province,

largely on the strength of continued interest in the Kindersley area.

Governor General to make first official visit to Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe announced recently that Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, will visit Saskatchewan October 18 to 20. “On behalf of the people of Saskatchewan, I am honoured to welcome Her Excellency to our province for her first official visit,” Moe said.

“We look forward to sharing the Saskatchewan story with the Governor General through a number of great programs that will exemplify our provincial motto: From many peoples, strength.” As part of her first official visit to Saskatchewan, Her Excellency is planning to meet with Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor W.

Thomas Molloy at Government House, tour Regina’s iconic Wascana Park, take in a performance by the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, and attend a Humboldt Broncos hockey game. Details of the visit are subject to change without notice. To obtain the latest updates, please visit www.

This was the fourth of six public offerings scheduled throughout the fiscal year, which brings the 201819 fiscal revenue total to $27.2 million. The energy industry in western Canada is prepared to compete for the right to explore and develop Saskatchewan’s oil and gas rights, as the province’s public offerings have averaged more than $500 on a per-hectare basis to date, compared to approximately $275 per hectare in Alberta. “We are encouraged by the confidence shown by the oil and gas industry in Saskatchewan’s prospects,”

Energy and Resources Minister Bronwyn Eyre said. “The industry continues to see Saskatchewan as a strong choice for long-term investment.” There were 56 parcels totalling 7,068.208 hectares purchased, for a total of $2,134,898.07. The Kindersley area received the most attention in this public offering, where 24 leases totalling 5,293.318 hectares were sold for $1,295,855.70. The Estevan area brought in a total of $664,626.03 for 19 leases totalling 1,434.942 hectares. The highest bonus bid

for a parcel was $170,388.33 for 259 hectares. This parcel, located north of Eston, was purchased by Millennium Land Ltd. and is prospective for oil in the Viking Formation. The top dollars per hectare in this offering was $3,203.36 per hectare for a 32.376-hectare parcel located southeast of Carnduff, which was purchased by Federated Co-operatives Ltd. and is prospective for oil in the Frobisher Beds of the Madison Group. The next public offering of petroleum and natural gas rights will be held on December 4, 2018.

Winter driving tips - Clear snow from your vehicle and be sure your windows are completely defrosted before you drive. - Slow down. Posted speed limits are for ideal driving conditions. Adjust your speed accordingly when conditions are less than favourable, like when roads are icy or there is low visibility. - Invest in a set of winter tires, which provide improved traction on winter road surfaces. - Leave more distance between your vehicle and the one in front of

you, so you have more time to stop. SGI recommends at least a foursecond following distance. - Give yourself extra time to get to your destination so you’re not tempted to drive too fast for road conditions. - Turn on your headlights at night and any time visibility is poor, since some vehicles do not have taillights on when daytime running lights are being used. - Don’t use cruise control in slippery conditions.

Celebrating modern agriculture By Cam Dahl, President, Cereals Canada Most farmers are reluctant to talk about modern agriculture. Our own industry advertisements promote the image of a farm with a faded red barn and a few chickens running about in a pastoral setting. That is not modern agriculture and we need to stop letting agriculture be portrayed this way. It is not hard to understand why modern agriculture shies away from talking about what we do on the farm. Modern agriculture practices are regularly attacked by activists who want to return to the lost golden age of Ol’ McDonald’s farm. One just has to look at the recent flurry of negative media coverage of glyphosate, one of the most studied and reviewed pesticides in history, to see evidence of agriculture practices being questioned. The truth is that Ol’

McDonald retired a long time ago. We should let him enjoy his dotage. His day was characterized by rural poverty, houses with no running water and no central heat. Rural schooling was in one room that gave those in them little chance of advanced education. The good old days were not very good for those living in them. Modern agriculture has changed that. Today most agriculture production in Canada takes place on commercial farms that are thriving businesses. Mostly owned and operated by families, they are managed by individuals with advanced degrees and a deep understanding of international markets. The equipment is not rusting pick-ups and open cab tractors but combines, sprayers and tractors that are guided by satellites. Seeds, fertilizers and pesticides used are the result of years of intensive research. These tools

are designed to have a minimal environmental footprint and to be safe for farmers and consumers alike. I am told by professional communicators that talking about modern agriculture in this way does not effectively reach consumers and give them comfort in how their food is produced. Someone is a downtown urban center, shopping for their kids’ lunch, does not care that much about eradicating rural poverty. They just want to know that they will be giving their kids a safe an nutritious lunch. So what has modern agriculture done for consumers? Let’s tackle “affordable”. By February 9th of 2018, the average Canadian household earned enough income to pay for their grocery bill for the entire year, spending about 10 percent of their income on food. Want to compare? Portuguese con-

sumers spend about 17, percent of their income on food, Russians 28 percent and Nigerians 56 percent. Those of us involved in agriculture need to do a better job of communicating how modern farming tools and practices have given Canadians access to some of the cheapest and highest quality food in the world. We also need to be able to relate what happens when ill-conceived regulations take those tools away. Modern Canadian agriculture is also delivering some of the safest food in the world. A recent study by the Conference Board of Canada ranked food safety performance of Canada and sixteen other developed OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) nations. Canada’s food safety ranked the highest of all the countries examined. Modern Canadian agriculture has a very good

environmental story to tell. Modern practices such as conservation tillage are increasing the health of soils, reducing the amount of fuel used and reducing soil erosion. Precision agriculture, which uses satellites to precisely steer equipment is maximizing the efficiency of pesticides and fertilizers, further reducing fuel use and protecting water from nutrient run-off. In the last 40 years, energy use per tonne of wheat produced has reduced by 39 percent. Forty years ago soil organic matter was being depleted with every crop. Modern agriculture has changed this picture dramatically and today organic matter in prairie soils is increasing every year. This means the soil is healthier, it is more productive, less susceptible soil erosion and farms across Canada are sequestering carbon dioxide.

Why are these good news stories about modern agriculture not getting through to average Canadians? One of the reasons is that those who are opposed to modern agriculture are focused on their communication efforts and have spent the time and money to coordinate their work. Agriculture, on the other hand, does not have united communication efforts. We are all focused on our individual companies and organizations and often communicating with the public is left to “side of the desk” projects. This needs to change. Agriculture needs to give time, money and coordination to our outreach. Modern agriculture has a good story to tell, but if we aren’t telling it then we are letting others speak for us and all consumers will hear are concerns from outside our industry.

Our food has a story: Celebrating Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan October has been proclaimed as Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan. Throughout the month people are encouraged to learn more about Saskatchewan agriculture and get involved in the conversation about modern food production. Keeping the momentum of previous years, the theme for Agriculture Month is “Our

Food Has a Story.” People are invited to share their unique food story to build a connection between how our food is produced and ends up on our plates. “Agriculture Month provides an opportunity for our producers to show their passion for producing sustainable, healthy and affordable food,” Agriculture Minister

David Marit said. “By connecting with consumers about what we do, and why we do it, farmers and ranchers are building public trust and that is an important part of our industry in Saskatchewan.” The Ministry of Agriculture and Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan are collaborating with Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan

and Ag More Than Ever to engage industry throughout Agriculture Month to share food stories and encourage the public to learn about modern agriculture focusing on health and nutrition, affordability, food safety, and sustainability. “I’m always excited when Agriculture Month rolls around as it gives everyone an opportunity to talk about food

and farming,” Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan Chair Erwin Hanley said. “Consumers want to know more about how their food is grown and the engaging stories, videos and pictures that are shared during the month of October aim to highlight food in this great province.” For a full list of Agriculture Month events or to learn

how you can take part, visit Follow the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture on Twitter @SKAgriculture, on Facebook at Saskatchewan Agriculture or visit ag-month. Share your stories on social media using #OurFoodHasAStory and #AgMonth18.
