$45 million to rebuild Highway 15
Summer highway repair work continues in the Last Mountain area, as this crew began work mid-last week to replace the culvert on Highway 20, just south of the junction of Highways 20 & 15 south of Nokomis. The culvert at this location proved to be much too small to handle the volume of water ﬂowing through it this spring. Looking at the photo, it’s hard to believe that run-off water was at the point of nearly running over the highway at this location less than 6 weeks ago. To avoid closing the highway while the work is being done, single lane trafﬁc is being directed through the construction area using a set of automatic trafﬁc lights. The inset photo shows the deep cut in the east half of the highway, as workers prepare to install the Photo: LMT Staff new culvert.
Crime spree in Strasbourg In the late evening of Sunday, June 12, or the morning of Monday July, 13, there was a rash of break and enters in the Town of Strasbourg. Six businesses located on Mountain Street in Strasbourg were broken into, and cash was taken at each business. The businesses included Strasbourg Agencies, New New Chop Suey, Every Little Thing, Up Town Girls hair salon, Kerth Enterprises, SARCAN, and Mountain Motors Products. An estimate of the total amount of cash
Regional planning session in Nokomis Town ofﬁcials and interested residents gathered at the Nokomis Hall on the evening of June 14 to take part in a discussion focused on a long-term regional vision that will support local community objectives. The discussion was facilitated by Stantec Consulting as part of the Mid Sask Municipal Alliance’s efforts to create a District Ofﬁcial Community Plan. The Plan is described as a comprehensive planning exercise that will assess and anticipate future growth for the 12 member Alliance municipalities. Once the policy framework is in place, it will help the Alliance members manage future growth in a comprehensive, coordinated manner in anticipation of the BHP Billiton potash developments in the area.
“We had 14 residents attending the discussion session in Nokomis. The community is very proud, and generated some excellent ideas,” facilitator Devin Clarke said. Clarke noted that the members attending were able to articulate a comprehensive list of positive attributes that Nokomis is able to use to promote itself as a community: safe water, safe community, friendly people, 40 vacant and available building lots, the trees, curling, hockey, dance, golf, music, playground, doctor, K-12 school, car dealership, ﬂower shop, lumber yard, restaurants, drug store, other businesses, family orientated, museum, close to a regional park, proximity to cities, and to Continued on page 5

stolen, or the cost of the damage to business premises is not available. A spokesman for one of the businesses said the break-ins appeared to be the work of people who knew what they were doing, as opposed to a spur of the moment thing by random vandals, as in many cases the locks were punched out to gain access to the buildings. The businessman also noted that similar break-ins have occurred on other ‘grad weekends’ leading him to believe that this is the work of professional criminals who targeted the community, knowing that business people and families would be otherwise occupied. The break-ins are still under investigation by the Southey R.C.M.P., and the Regina Forensic Identiﬁcation Unit. Anyone with information, or anyone who may have noticed suspicious activity or strange vehicles in the area around the time of the break-ins, is asked to contact the Southey R.C.M.P. at 726-5230, or Saskatchewan Crimestoppers.
The provincial government will invest an estimated $45 million to rebuild Highway 15 east of Kenaston as part of a new high clearance corridor for shippers to haul over-height loads across Saskatchewan. However, the announcement does not include any work in the immediate Last Mountain area. Department of Highways ofﬁcials say 57 kilometres of Highway 15 will be completely rebuilt from the Junction of Highway 11 east to Highway 2. The highway will be improved from a thin membrane surface (TMS) to an asphalt concrete pavement capable of carrying primary weight truck trafﬁc, the highest allowable weight at which shippers can transport their goods. The work will be done in three stages, beginning with gravel crushing in the winter of 2012, with on-road work slated to begin in the spring and summer of 2012. Work will begin at the eastern end of the project and is expected to continue for three construction seasons, ending in 2015. In addition, all utility lines that could obstruct over-height loads will be buried to allow loads to be moved without the need to temporarily cut utility lines. The $2.3 million provincial investment to bury the lines will eventually be recouped through the permit fees to users. Once the initial investment has been recovered, permit fees will be used to cover maintenance and upgrading of the highway, along with the development of additional corridors to provide a high-clearance network across Saskatchewan. Farm equipment will be exempt from the permit fee in accordance with provincial weight and di-
mension regulations. This initiative is the result of collaboration between the provincial government, Enterprise Saskatchewan, SGI’s Permit Ofﬁce, SaskPower and large equipment manufacturers in the private sector. SaskPower is currently in the process of moving or burying all lines that could potentially get in the way of over-sized loads. This work should be complete by July 2011. “We’ve heard and responded to the concerns of local residents who have been requesting a safe, smooth and reliable highway that was strong enough to meet their transportation needs and support regional economic development,” Arm River-Watrous MLA Greg Brkich said. “I am pleased that our government has committed to this project as it will help stimulate the economy and improve the quality of life throughout the region and Saskatchewan.” The route runs from the Alberta border to Saskatoon on Highway 7 and from Rosetown to Melville on Highway 15 (utilizing short portions of Highways 4, 20 and 6 along the way), for a total distance of 680 km. Other improvements to Highway 15 in the 2011 construction season include repaving from the junction of Highway 45 to 15 km west, which is underway now; and repaving from 1.8 km east of the Milden Access to 200 m east of the Sovereign Access, which is expected to be underway later this summer. There is no other major work planned on the section of Highway 15 east from the junction of Highway 2 south of Watrous in the foreseeable future.
Another area drug bust
On Friday, June 10 members of the Regina Integrated Drug Unit, Regina police service street crimes unit, Strasbourg RCMP Detachment, and RCMP police dog services executed a search warrant on a residence and vehicle in the town Bulyea. In the residence, police discovered a marijuana grow operation, with 44 plants in various stages of growth. During their search police also located marijuana resin in the production stage, 2 ounces of street-ready marijuana, and over 100 pills of morphine. As a result of the search and seizure operation, 43 year old Curtis Daechert of Bulyea is charged with: possession for the purpose of trafﬁcking cannabis marijuana and morphine, production of Cannabis marijuana and cannabis resin, and trafﬁcking marijuana.

This is my lucky day. It started with only having to get up twice in the night to go to the bathroom instead of three or four times. Then, at breakfast, I dropped a piece of toast on the ﬂoor and it landed jam side up. Next, I remembered a doctor’s appointment without looking at the calendar, and when I did look to see if I had the date right, I did. On top of that, when I checked my newspaper to make sure today was the day I thought it was, it was. I had plenty of time to shower and get dressed, and when I combed my hair it behaved itself instead of sticking up in the wrong places as usual. When I was ready to leave, my purse and keys were exactly where they were supposed to be. From then on, things only got better. There was no wind and my hair stayed put. My bus came along right after I arrived at the bus stop, and the doctor determined that I was still alive and doing ﬁne. As I left the building I ran into an old neighbour whose name came instantly to mind. She offered me a ride home as it was on her way, but we decided to have lunch together ﬁrst. We talked about our families and it turned out she has only three grandchildren while I have six. On the way home we saw a
sign for a yard sale and couldn’t resist checking it out. I was delighted to ﬁnd a picture that was obviously a paint-by-number effort, and not a good one at that, but which came with a nice frame I was sure would be the right size for a landscape a friend of mine had painted and given me. It only cost a dollar, and when I got home I found it was exactly right. One of my favourite dishes, liver and onions, was on the dinner menu, and afterwards I played Cribbage in the rec. room and won ﬁrst prize for the best score. I’ll probably never have as perfect a day again, but it would be nice to have an occasional replay of the nightly bathroom visits.

Provincial news briefs Canadian Paciﬁc latest major tenant at Global Transportation Hub The future home of CP’s Intermodal Facility at the Global Transportation Hub (GTH) was ofﬁcially unveiled at a ceremony on June 10. The new facility will be located on a 124-hectare site west of Regina adjacent to CP’s main line between Regina and Moose Jaw. Initial construction is expected to start this summer with completion scheduled for late 2012. Canadian Paciﬁc joins Canadian Logistics Services in locating to the Hub, which encompasses about 2,000 acres of serviced land. When fully developed, the Hub will comprise a major Western Canadian transportation and logistics centre. The Global Transportation Hub is designed, in part, to stimulate provincial economic development by providing enhanced and more efﬁcient access to global supply chains for Saskatchewan exporters and attracting new investment. The GTH Regina Intermodal Facility will replace the existing terminal that opened in 1980. The new facility’s footprint allows for a potential of up to 250,000 container handlings per year or about ﬁve times the number of container handlings at the 31-year old terminal. Intermodal trains move a wide variety of international and domestic products – ranging from consumer products like electronics, clothing and furniture, to auto parts and agricultural specialty crops such as peas, beans, lentils, soya beans and alfalfa.

The campground, campground service centres, boat launch, rental cabins, marina store, mini golf and restaurant are now all be available to visitors. The beach will re-open once water levels recede. However, the marina will remain closed for the season. Inmate’s calls can be monitored Amendments to The Correctional Services Act Regulations
have been approved enabling ofﬁcials from the Ministry of Corrections, Public Safety and Policing to listen to calls recorded on its inmate telephone system. “The inmate telephone system is an important part of this government’s overall agenda to strengthen on security measures in our correctional centres,” Corrections, Public Safety and Policing Minister D. F. (Yogi) Huyghebaert said. “Before the system was put in place, inmates could use the telephone system for criminal purposes related to drugs, assaults or to intimidate
victims and witnesses.” Inmates in all of Saskatchewan’s four secure provincial correctional centres have had their phone calls recorded since last June, when the system was installed. Recordings are stored and can now be played back by speciﬁed corrections personnel if there is suspicion that criminal activity is being transacted.

Nokomis Whitehawks in St. Brieux
Some would-be shoppers arriving at the Govan Co-op Store on Monday morning, June 13 were surprised and disappointed to be greeted by a “Sorry, We’re Closed” sign, and a note on the door informing members and customers that effective that day, the store will now be closed on Mondays, and will now operate from 10:30 AM to noon, and 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM Tuesday through Saturday only. The note informed members that other changes are also being made to reduce operating costs: reduced stafﬁng levels, eliminating products that do not generate ﬁnancial returns, and asking customers to bag their own groceries. The note concluded: “If we all work together in a spirit of co-operation, we may be able to maintain a grocery store in our town for the future.”

Several residents signed up for the event and were in their driveways and yards in the early morning, ready for garage-salers to stop by and discover some treasures. Not to keep buyers hungry or thirsty, the Govan First Responders hosted their annual fundraiser barbeque at the gazebo on Elgin Street at the same time, providing burgers and hotdogs and ice cold refreshments!

Federated Institute of Canada. Sunday morning we had a very dedicated church service and speaker who, warned us about heart attacks and strokes. More women than men die of heart attacks. Three factors to reduce the risk of heart attacks: 1) quit smoking; 2) exercise and eat right; 3) manage your blood pressure. Women’s Institutes are not dead. Our new president is Virginia Kreklevich of Foam Lake. Our project for 2012 is very important, the ‘Children’s Hospital’ in Saskatoon.

Regional planning session Cont’d from page 1 the planned potash mine, young families (growing), employment, both railways, churches, recreation is inexpensive and accessible. In contrast, Clarke noted that the identiﬁed “negatives” formed a much shorter list: lack of housing (for sale & rent), lack of seniors housing (14 beds now), lack of multi-family housing, no daycare, lack of a primary highway, lack of capacity for development, and lack of in-town employment. Nokomis Mayor Fred Wright attended the discussion session, and said it was deﬁnitely a useful exercise to identify the community’s positive and negative attributes, and to gain some insight into the Alliance’s interpretation of how the BHP Billiton developments will unfold, and impact the communities in this area. “We were told that the cur-
rent level of activity at the Jansen site will not have much long term impact in this immediate area, as the bulk of the workforce there now is fairly transient. The permanent workforce will not be hired or in place for at least another ﬁve years, and a lot can happen in that time,” Wright said. “We were also told that, of the projected permanent workforce at the Jansen mine, about 50 per cent will likely commute from Saskatoon or other larger communities in the area, and the other 50 per cent will chose to live in the smaller communities within a 40 or 50 kilometre radius of the mine. That could mean we might have 30 to 40 families choosing to live in Nokomis and immediate area.” Wright added, however, that the community certainly can’t afford to sit back and wait for ﬁve years before trying to move ahead with the other eco-
nomic development ideas and activities that will be required in the interim to keep Nokomis viable and attractive to potential new residents in the future. Among the items / issues identiﬁed as needing attention were the following: promote by targeting youth, develop a vision and community buy-in, get everyone involved, not just council, revitalize downtown, preserve identity, develop an implementation strategy that considers resources, make it ﬂexible but more forward, get on the radar, believe that the economic development is coming, willingness to grow, develop relationships with BHP, work together, promote family, safe/secure, rural, clean air. The Nokomis session was one of six sessions held in the area (Lanigan, Watrous, Jansen, Watson, Nokomis, and LeRoy) between June 6 and June 15.

Air Canada picket lines come down The Canadian Auto Workers Union (CAW) reached a tentative agreement with Air Canada last Thursday after more than 12 weeks of tough negotiations with Air Canada. After the tentative agreement was announced, picket lines were taken down and plans were established for ratification votes over the next two weeks on the new four-year agreement. CAW President Ken Lewenza said the new agreement is an important achievement for the 3,800 CAW members at Air Canada, who resisted company demands for major pension concessions. Lewenza said the new agreement covers wages, pensions, benefits and all other key issues in bargaining. But he said the contentious issue of pension benefits for new hires will be sent to arbitration where the union will present the case for continuing a defined benefit pension plan.

Did your group or club recently do something positive for your community?
Financial losses are mounting at Canada Post as the rotating strike being carried out by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) entered its second week last week. Canada Post estimates that it has lost over $70 million in revenue – and that ﬁgure is climbing daily as Canada Post is continuing to incur a signiﬁcant wage bill for 48,000 members of CUPW while the union conducts rotating strikes. Spokesmen say the uncertainty of where CUPW members will strike from day-to-day has made it difﬁcult for Canada Post to plan its logistics and transport network let alone the stafﬁng levels. Last Tuesday’s strike action in the two largest metropolitan centres in Canada where over 60 per cent of national mail volume originates crippled the whole postal network. If rotating strikes continue to impact the business at this pace, Canada Post says it is not in a position to sustain its operations across the country, and as a result late last Tuesday the company suspended operations nation-wide and locked-out its striking workers. CUPW said locking out postal workers nation-wide is irresponsible, and there is a considerable amount of mail in the system that will not be delivered. The union says it committed to deliver pension and social assistance cheques and they intend to fulﬁl that commitment.
Let us know about it! E-mail: LMT@sasktel.net

The existing defined benefit pension plan remains unchanged until January 1, 2013, when there will be some modifications to the plan. Lewenza declined to provide details of the wage increases until the ratification meetings, but said the wage package was good.

William Derby School art coffee house held
William Derby School in Strasbourg held an Arts Night at the school on the evening of Monday, June 6. On display was visual artwork from grades 4 through 12. Along with viewing the creative artwork, entertainment was provided throughout the evening. The WDS band and choir under the direction of Mrs. Holness, performed various selections. The grade 9 class performed interesting ‘garage band’ music compositions. The audience of parents, relatives and members of the community, also enjoyed the ‘stop motion’ ﬁlms from the grade 8 class as well as their dancing. The grade 7 drum band, comprised of mostly water cooler jugs, did a great job. The WDS Drama Club provided a fun break through the night with various drama commercial breaks. A beautiful selection of scrumptious desserts and coffee were available for sale which everyone enjoyed. It was a very entertaining evening during which the students and staff can take pride in their accomplishments through the arts.
Over $17,000 raised for MS research Once again, Mishell’s Angels surpassed all fundraising expectations for the 2011 MS Walk in Regina on early May with the largest friends and family team of 41 Angels. The day turned out great! Even the weather cooperated. No winter jackets under our capes. That’s right, before we head out on the walk, we put on our hunter orange capes because we are all Super-Heroes ﬁghting to ﬁnd a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. We wore them loud and proud as we walked around Wascana Lake with all the other MS Walk participants. It was great to see a few of the past Angels join us again this year and we also welcomed some
new Angels. We range in age from 3 months old to 72 years old and come from all over the province, with lots of local families from Semans, Govan, Raymore, Strasbourg, Southey, Regina and from as far away as Esterhazy, Humboldt, Saskatoon and North Battleford. Mishell’s Angels are everywhere. So, how did we raise over $17,000 for this year’s MS Walk in Regina you may ask? Well it’s quite easy when you have fabulous family and friends to help with events and the support of people who participate or donate. In 2010, we rafﬂed a Jordan Hendry Chicago BlackHawks signed jersey that he donated in memory of
his Grandfather Russ Hendry who had Multiple Sclerosis. This rafﬂe raised over $4500. We then held our 1st Annual Texas Scramble Golf Tournament and MS Fundraiser at Last Mountain Regional Park last August. It was a cold, windy day but we still had around 50 golfers participate and help us raise over $3200. And then we held a Boxing Day Cabaret in Semans which was a huge success and raised over $3900. Now add to that all the donations that were collected for Mishell’s Angels for the 2011 MS Walk and it totals to over $17,000. This is why Mishell’s Angels rock! Our next event is the 2nd Annual Texas Scramble and MS
Fundraiser at Last Mountain Regional Park on July 9 with all proceeds going to the 2012 MS Walk. It amazes me that we started out as four good friends wanting to help ﬁght against a disease that I was diagnosed with in 2002. So we joined the MS Walk in Regina in 2006 and have never looked back. We have grown in ﬁve years from four to over 60 coming together to help end MS. To date, Mishell’s Angels have raised over $36,000. I cannot say it enough; we could not have reached this amount without your support. - submitted by Michelle Wilda, Semans

Top 10 Ways to Give Your Cat the Royal Treatment 10. Scratching is very natural and necessary, so create several places where your cat can scratch. 9. Most cats love to play, so look for toys that your companion can chase, pull, bat or climb into for fun, consider paper bags, milk-cartons, wadded-up paper and boxes. 8. Keep your feline fur face looking and feeling great by frequently brushing their coat and clipping their nails. 7. If you must bath your cat do so in warm water with mild soap – never use dog shampoo on a cat as it can be toxic. 6. Keep your cat safe and happy by keeping them indoors. A litter box will be required; use a plastic litter pan with about 2 inches of litter and place it in an out-of-the-way area. Be sure to clean the litter box DAILY! 5. Give your feline friend a well-padded yet shallow bed for sleeping and keep the location in a draft-free area. 4. Avoid generic or little-known food brands as many of these contain inferior ingredients. Also never give your fur child bones, raw ﬁsh or milk. 3. Register your furry friend up for free with The Humane Society of Canada’s Pet Recovery Team. 2. Vaccinate your cat and protect your family from rabies and other health challenges. 1. Spay or neuter your cat to make sure there are enough permanent loving homes for every little kitten. - source: Humane Society of Canada

The District Meet, held at Griffith’s Stadium in Saskatoon on May 24 also saw several WDS athletes finding great success. WDS finished ninth out of 39 schools in the entire District, which is outstanding. Julia Edwards set the new District record by running the 3000m in Humboldt the week before with a time of 11:59. That race is run on a separate date due to its length. Jordan Schulz won

Silton Silhouettes dance year wraps up This past year was an amazing one for the Silton Silhouettes, and Elsa McKenzie truly shone. This was her ﬁrst year taking on the entire club. The new classes to Elsa were the juniors, beginners, and even a toddler class. It may not sound like a lot, but the beginner class has ten students and the new toddler class had four of the cutest little girls you ever did see! This year there was a ‘jungle’ theme, which allowed the dancers to really let loose and have some fun with their
performances. All the groups placed very well in the three competitions that were attended. There were a few outstanding awards received by the club members this year. Diana Nordal and Jordana Gorrill both won a $70 scholarship from The Pulse Competition in Regina for ‘Fresh Dance Intensive’ held in Calgary. Shortly after, the club attended the Dance Extravaganza, also held in Regina, where Eden Foster and Madeline Harvey earned the title of most promising tap duo/trio 5-11 years
and most promising duo/trio all ages. Also, Sydney Wild won most promising tap solo 5-11 years. Next came the competition that everyone looks forward to – the Moose Jaw Invitational Dance Carnival. This was quite the weekend. As everyone was trying to get to Moose Jaw, there was a freak snow/thunder storm and Lumsden closed their bridge that Saturday morning, just to add to the fun of it. It was an amazing weekend for awards: senior tap (Maga-
lena) received most promising open small tap group, senior lyrical (Any Thing World) received most promising open small lyrical group and Ellie Holgate, Adreanna Hamilton and Brett Rumple won most promising hip hop duo/trio
all ages. But the fun didn’t end there – as the Saturday night competition was winding down, someone pulled the ﬁre alarm. If you have ever seen this school in Moose Jaw – it is huge. It was not easy getting everyone out of the

school, where it was deemed a false alarm, and everyone was allowed back in to ﬁnish the rest of the dances. It was a super year for the club, but it is nice to wrap it all up and have a bit of time off. This recital was so fabulous, I can’t wait until the next one. Have a great summer everyone, you deserve it! -submitted by Corri Gorrill It was truly a fun-ﬁlled weekend, as president Kaylee Mansbridge was giving away a ton of stuff. First off, the four food hampers were awarded to Linda Schropp, Myrt McLeod, Sylvia Pilapil and Lois Parke. Also, Bob Wilson donated a Don Fairbairn picture won by Verlyn Cameron and Tiff Macdougall. And also, every year Larry Lintick donates a piece of woodworking and Taylor Cameron was the lucky winner of that.

LAST MOUNTAIN TIMES 11
Mitchell convocates by Kelly Kirk
Kelly Kirk For the sake of continuity, once again it’s midnight, the night before my column is due. I’ve known what I’ve been going to write about for over a month now, but really, why do it early and then forget some key points, or miss out on some new ideas. I arrived
home from my favorite auto event of the year last night, seemingly full of inspiration for what I’m writing. Long story short, it rained all weekend and a lot of what I wanted to see never surfaced... I still enjoyed my time, but it kind of puts a damper on me here. Calgary is one of the few places around where there are still people building one of my favorite renditions of the custom car: The Lowrider! We’ve all seen them, whether scraping their bumpers going in and out of a parking lot, or rolling with one front wheel hanging in the air in a rap video, they’re out there and they’re just begging to be noticed. Simple ones will be dropped the traditional way, by cutting or heating coil springs and removing
leaf springs from the pack. The ride height was reduced, but the ride comfort was also compromised some. I own one car and two trucks that are lowered using this manner, and you need look no further than the underside of my front bumper to see just what a hard drop can do to something even as tough as steel. For those that don’t want to roll lower than a pregnant ant’s belly all the time, there are alternatives. Traditionally, people would fill the trunk full of batteries and use hydraulic pumps with small coil springs on top to create an adjustable ride height. Although not a common place anymore, I truly enjoy this, as it makes a very distinct mechanical noise when moving up or down and also allows
the car to be ‘hopped’, or bounced repeatedly in the air by way of an electronic control box. The downside of this is a severe degradation of ride quality if not set up correctly, not to mention huge expense and weight gain. Nowadays, air ride has taken most of the lowrider market, requiring minimal plumbing, one battery, tank, compressor, controller and four air springs. Sure, being low is cool, really cool, but only if you look the part. For those who’ve never had the opportunity to see a full-blown show lowrider, you’re missing out. Metal flake, airbrushing, candy, pinstriping, scallops, lace and murals are all commonplace – Sometimes on the same car! Interiors are always built for wretched excess as well, featuring such creature comforts as thick seats, wet bars, and for some reason a gruesome steering wheel made entirely out of chromed chain. If it can be removed from the car, it can and will be plated in chrome or gold, that’s just the way it is, because after all, if you’re doing that much work to something, why not step it up just that much further than the other guy?

Usually one doesn’t sit and ponder on the effect that one’s hobbies might have on society. After all, they’re just hobbies. Leisurely activities that we engage in for relaxation and enjoyment. Not the sort of things that laws and policies are decided on. But I was just recently comparing two of my hobbies. I like guns and I like guitars. We’re all aware of the divisive nature of the gun issue. And anyone who owns guns knows what a circus it can be to be a gun owner. Especially if you own a handgun, or anything even remotely resembling the dreaded ‘assault rifle’, the term that reporters like to throw around when they don’t really know what they’re talking about. For the most part, I do see the need for some laws in regard to firearms. Kind of like cars, when in the hands of a moron, they can be dangerous. It’s not the fact that people are concerned about gun violence. Gun owners understand that. It’s a legitimate concern. What bugs me is the underlying message that if you like guns, then you’re a borderline sociopath just a bad day away from a murderous rampage. They’re merely addressing a symptom of what is wrong in our society rather that what might be the pos-
sible cause. Which brings me to the other part of this writing. When it comes to guitars, I can walk into any music store, and if my credit card balance and wife say I can, I can buy any guitar that my little heart desires. No questions asked. No forms to fill out, no waiting period, nothing. As it should be. Here’s my point. I can take that guitar home, and if I chose to do so, I could sit down and write an album of the most obscene, foul, misogynistic, hateful, anarchistic, racist, etc. songs I could think of. And with some proper marketing and promotion, there is the potential of influencing thousands of impressionable minds with those songs. And no one could really do anything to stop me. Sure, I would have to put on the obligatory, token warning sticker, which I think would only generate more interest rather than serve as a deterrent. But other than that, I can just put my hat on sideways, put on some bling and go for it. So I’m just wondering, at the end of the day which could have a more negative effect on society. Methinks it’s not necessarily the hard working, everyday guy with a locked safe full of guns. On the other hand, prohibiting people from expressing themselves can start us down a potentially dangerous road as well. Of course, it’s all about freedom of speech. The same law that allows someone to record his or her music is the same law that allows me to publish my stuff every month. I guess there’s certain responsibilities that go hand in hand with our freedom to do things we want. Who would have thought hobbies could be so burdensome. Maybe I’ll take up stamp collecting instead. Roland Richter lives in Nokomis, SK. Disclaimer: the opinions expressed are those of the writer.

ity Program is responding to community priorities by helping volunteer and nonprofit organizations deliver community projects for the benefit of Saskatchewan residents. “This program is very well received by Saskatchewan communities,” Tracey Mann, CIF Executive Director said. “Volunteer leaders, especially those of smaller communities, tell us how critical these small capital grants are to repair or update their gathering areas, or to celebrate community accomplishments. We hope even more communities become involved through our programs.” The Community Vitality Program has two components: Small Capital and Community Pride Projects and Events. Small capital projects may involve upgrading rinks and community halls, even improving accessibility for residents. Projects that enhance community pride involve special events projects such as community anniversaries and volunteer recognition. The CIF is a Special Purpose Fund created through The Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation Act and governed by a volunteer Board appointed through the Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport. The CIF offers grant programs for community-led projects that benefit children, youth and families in Saskatchewan.

Every woman’s experience with childbirth is different. For some, it is relatively easy and uncomplicated. For others, there may be varying degrees of difficulty, fear, and even trauma. Once the baby is born, all of the focus shifts immediately to the newborn. The mother is often left to process her feelings and reactions to the birth process on her own. All of the training and reading beforehand was supposed to prepare her, but there is an extent to which

Coping with life after childbirth we cannot be prepared for what we will experience when we actually go through it. I believe that in addition to shifts in hormones, a woman’s experiences during birth may contribute to post partum depression. This may be particularly true in the case of a C-section. While this surgery may be considered quite routine, it is still a major trauma to the body, as is any major surgery. In addition, as the mother is either anesthetized or heavily drugged, the bonding experience right after birth is not the same. This is not to say the mother does not bond with her baby, only that it is unlikely that she gets to hold and nurse the child until at least several hours after giving birth. Very soon after either kind of delivery, the mother is wrapped up in the care of her infant, and she must put the birthing experience behind her. However, emotions,
and physical sensations are stored in consciousness, even if beneath the level of awareness. A mother may have sensations of sadness, vulnerability, and even detachment, which may surface months after the birth. If she does not understand where these feelings are coming from, she may think there is something wrong with her. If, particularly in the year following the birth of a child, you are feeling depressed or despondent, it may be wise to address the psychological aspects of your birthing experience with an experienced therapist.

Colonsay mine fatality Thursday morning, June 16, at 10:56 a.m., RCMP Colonsay detachment received a call from an employee at the Mosaic Potash Mine reporting that a mine vehicle had overturned while being driven underground at the mine. The mine vehicle was being operated by a mine employee when it overturned. The driver and lone occupant of the vehicle, a 35 year old male, died at the scene. Foul play has been ruled out by the RCMP. Occupational Health & Safety along with the Provincial Coroner are now investigating the incident as a workplace accident. Permission to release the name of the deceased has not been received from the family. Melfort stabbing On the evening of June 14 in Melfort, local RCMP received a report of a male wearing a mask entering a home that was occupied by several people ranging in age from 17 to 24. Investigation has determined that the door was kicked open to gain access to the residence and the occupants inside the home were threatened with a knife and bear spray. One of the male occupants was stabbed in the abdomen, he was later treated in hospital and released. A 25 year old male was located and arrested by Melfort detachment members. Jaymond Meier of Melfort appeared in Provincial court in Melfort this June 15 and is facing multiple charges including: break and enter and commit the indictable offence of assault with a weapon; assault; uttering threats; possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace; possession of a prohibited weapon; and breach of probation.

The 49 year old female driver and a 17 year old female passenger were taken to Regina General Hospital for treatment of lower back pain following the incident. Six children, ranging in age from nine to 17 years of age, were taken to Wynyard Hospital for assessment of minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the incident. The grid road is a maintained and well traveled. An RCMP Collision Analyst from Yorkton Detachment attended the scene to assist Punnichy RCMP Detachment members with the investigation. This incident is still under investigation.

Gretzky is Father of the Year
Walter Gretzky In recognition of his extraordinary life, Walter Gretzky, one of Canada’s most famous fathers, is being honoured as Canada’s 2011 Father of the Year by Doro, a world leader in easy to use cell phones and devices designed especially for seniors. Walter is encouraging Canadians from coast to coast to “make the call” on Father’s Day, and tell our dads and father figures how much they mean to us. A modest man from humble beginnings, Walter Gretzky raised five children in his hometown of Brantford, Ontario inspiring and mentoring his son Wayne to become one of the greatest hockey players in the world. A fighter in his own right, Walter battled back from a near-fatal brain aneurysm in 1991 and today devotes his time to helping charities and fundraisers – raising millions of dollars for worthy causes across Canada during the past 20 years. “Being named Canada’s Father of the Year is an incredible honour for me. Reminding sons and daughters to make the call on Father’s Day is a message that’s close to my heart,” said Walter Gretzky from his Brantford home. “Over the years, I have relied heavily on the phone to keep in touch with all my children, particularly Wayne who would call from the road after almost every game to let me know how things went, and of course to just to stay in touch.” Father’s Day is an important day for loved ones to celebrate the men in their lives who have made a difference with their love and support. Although any day is the right day to tell someone you care, this just-past Father’s Day was the perfect reminder to thank the man who has provided so much ongoing love and support.
Trusting in God’s faithfulness day by day gives us confidence in His promises for the future. In the book of John, we are promised by Jesus “I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.” We are all created by the same God. God’s Son, Jesus Christ, the human form of God, had to die on the cross in order for us to have eternal life. The first human beings on earth, by choice, did what they were not supposed to do. By their actions, we all became sinners, separated from our holy Creator. God wanted a holy people so we could be His companions. He created humans with the ability to make choices. He didn’t want little puppets on a string who would automatically do as He wished. Man messed up! Had to try what God told him was not good for him. We still mess up! Have to try everything before we come to the realization that the longing within our souls is a longing for the Saviour, Jesus Christ. He came to die for us that we may live, really live! Our spirits within us are meant to be in communion with God’s Holy Spirit. When our spirit is not we search for something to fill that need. Different people try different things, – drugs, alcohol, money, sex, working all the time, many things that are not related to our Creator. Our Creator is never far from us at any
time. Really, He is just a prayer away! All we have to say is “God, forgive me. Help me to do what you want me to do.” The Bible tells us He is faithful and just to forgives us our sins. That is why God sent His Son into the world. He reclaims what is His, but, we have to decide for ourselves, each one of us, that we need our Creator to lead, guide and direct us. He doesn’t force Himself on us. We have to decide and ask for His forgiveness. He does not promise nothing will go wrong or we won’t suffer loss or hardship but He does promise to always be with us and give us the comfort, strength, courage and peace to do what we have do. Our trust in God’s promises gives us eternal life instead of just this earthly, temporary life. The Bible says “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you, He will never let the righteous fall.” Psalm 55:22 “I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.” John 14:3 Lamentations 3:24-26 – “I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.’ The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” May the peace of our Creator be with you always! Amen! Rev. Vicki Young Parish of the Cree People Punnichy, SK
Bruins take cup in 7th game The Vancouver Canucks missed their opportunity to win the Stanley Cup, as they lost Game 7 on June 15 by a score of 4-0 to the visiting Boston Bruins. Boston’s Patrice Bergeron struck first, at 14:37 of the first period. Boston’s Brad Marchand then gave the Bruins their second goal at 12:13 in the second period putting a wrap around past the Canuck’s Roberto Luongo. At 16:07 Bergeron scored a shorthanded goal on a breakaway when he was tripped by Vancouver’s Ehrhoff causing both to crash the net causing the puck to go in. In the third period Marchand added an empty net goal off a Vancouver turn-
over to finish the game. Tim Thomas, age 37 was awarded the Conn Smythe trophy for MVP of the playoffs, now the oldest to ever win it. He posted a 1.15 Goals against average and a .967 save percentage in the final being the lowest of the modern era with at least five appearances. Thomas holds the record for most saves in one playoff season (798) and most saves in a Stanley Cup Final with (238). He was also the first goalie to shut out the opposing team in game 7 in a Final. It is the sixth Stanley Cup for the Boston Bruins, but their first since 1972 when they were led by legendary defenceman
Bobby Orr. Boston had lost 5 Stanley Cup Finals since their win in ‘72. This was the third appearance at the Stanley Final for the Canucks. In 1982, the Canucks lost to the New York Islanders, and in 1994, they lost a seven game series to the New York Rangers. Vancouver has 18 Canadians on their roster but only 8 played in the final game. Their lone Saskatchewan-born player, Tanner Glass played 8:19 minutes in game 7. Boston has 17 Canadians on their roster, having 14 play in the final game. Although the Canucks were the league’s highest-scoring team in the regular season, they were out-scored in the final se-
ries 23 to 8, to the disappointment of thousands of hometown fans. That disappointment turned ugly as riots in downtown Vancouver caused millions of dollars in damage and looting. At least 150 people were injured, including nine police officers, as it took Vancouver police three hours to get the rioters under control. A six-hour riot occurred in 1994, the last time the Canucks were in the Stanley Cup final. Vancouver’s police chief referred to the rioters as ‘criminals, anarchists and thugs’ and said police are fully committed to tracking down the criminals responsible for the injuries, damage, and thefts.
Roughriders profit doubles to $6.6 million The Saskatchewan Roughriders say their loyal fans are largely responsible for the $6.6 million profit the club generated in the 2010 football season, as it set records in all areas of its operation, including ticket and merchandise sales and sponsorship deals. Last year’s profit was reported at $3.1 million, with one-third coming from ticket sales. Some of last year’s profits will be set aside in a stabilization fund, and it already
has a $5.2 million fund set aside for facility enhancement. The team has been taking part in feasibility studies and plans for a possible new multi-purpose entertainment venue in downtown Regina. The team plays at Mosaic Stadium, which is owned by the city of Regina. The lease requires the team to pay rent of 25 per cent of its annual net income, to a maximum of $200,000 per year.
from the sidelines Jay’s slugger still a relative unknown Time magazine calls him ‘The Best Baseball Player You’ve Never Heard Of.’ They’re obviously writing to a non-Canadian audience. Jose Bautista is the subject of the Time article – and the subject of dozens of other flattering pieces, at least north of the 49th parallel – and if you call yourself a Canadian, and even remotely follow Major League Baseball, then Bautista is ‘The Best Baseball Player You Have Definitely Heard Of.’ How could you not? The Blue Jays right-handed-hitting right fielder astonished the baseball world in 2010 with 54 home runs, 12 more than anyone else in either league. This year, he slammed 20 homers in his first 44 games (20 in his first 55 games, too, after enduring an 11-game homer drought), telling anyone suggesting last year was just a fluke that no, it was no fluke. So how did it come to pass that Bautista, a Dominican, suddenly became the Babe Ruth or the Hank Aaron of the 21st Century? Prior to last year’s breakout campaign, he was the poster boy for the term ‘journeyman’ – four bigleague seasons, three of them with Pittsburgh Pirates, and season home-run totals of 16, 15, 15 and 13, in that order. Suddenly, in 2010 – 54 home runs? Are you kidding? In this day of steroids and other performance-enhancing
drugs, the sports world was indeed suspicious. But Bautista has apparently been randomly tested for drug use four times since the start of 2010 and hitting coach Dwayne Murphy of the Jays says Bautista simply adjusted his stance and timing to allow him to utilize his power. The Jays rewarded Bautista with a five-year, $64 million contract after his 54-home-run season last year, and many observers were quick to criticize Jays’ general manager Alex Anthopoulos, predicting Bautista’s bat would cool off and make him an expensive one-year wonder. Those people were wrong; Anthopoulos apparently knew what he was doing, locking up Bautista for his early 30s, traditionally an athlete’s prime performance years. Living and playing in Toronto obviously leads to Bautista’s relative anonymity south of the border, and the only thing that might make him a Page 1 headliner, unfortunately, is a blockbuster revelation about drug use. As far as Canadians and Blue Jays fans are concerned, let Bautista lead the majors in home runs – and anonymity. • Headline at The Onion: “Neurologists Implore Professional Athletes To Wait Until They Are Dead To Send In Brains For Research.” • Comedy writer Jerry Perisho: “South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier proposed that teams pay its players $300

Manitoba launches campaign to save CWB
Weather winners and losers Every growing season is unique. This year, the mood of producers ranges from jubilation to despair depending upon spring weather. Manitoba will have even more unseeded acres than last year. Saskatchewan’s unseeded acreage problem isn’t as widespread, but the southeast corner including Estevan, Weyburn and Broadview has been particularly hard hit. All spring, low pressure systems have regularly dropped unwanted rain in that region. Now, the seeding window is all but by Kevin Hursh closed. While it varies from one local area to the next and one farm to another, most producers in the southeast have a substantial percentage of their land they were unable to seed. In many cases, they couldn’t even get access to the fields. There are some producers in the deep southwest corner of the province in the same proverbial boat, but the problem is the most acute in the southeast. Some of what was seeded has subsequently been flooded. Growing season hopes and dreams have already been dashed. As you move north and west, seeding wasn’t the same struggle. Surprisingly, some of the central and northern grain belt could actually use a good rain to help replenish surface moisture. Overall though, crops outside of the wettest zone are off to a strong start. With each day of warm weather, the crop advances. Weeds are growing too. Seeding season has morphed into spraying season. Whenever winds are light, sprayers are rolling. Since early in the spring, there’s been a steady stream of big expenses for seed, seed treatments, innoculant, fertilizer, equipment repairs and diesel fuel. Those expenses continue as producers use a wide range of weed control products. With good crop potential and with very strong grain prices, producers willingly invest money in the crop. It’s early in the growing season and there are no guarantees, but you have to spend money in the hope of making money. One of the crop threats is hail and producers are already making decisions of how much hail insurance to buy and what deductible option to go with. Hail insurance premiums depend on the hailstorm history of the region. For some townships, hail insurance is inexpensive. In others, the cost is prohibitive. As crops develop, some trends will be evident just from driving provincial highways. Canola has become a significant cropping option in west central and south west Saskatchewan. In a month, the yellow-flowered fields will be easy to spot. The traditionally dry regions have more canola than ever before. Here’s hoping there won’t be a July heat wave to blast the flowers and cut the yield. That’s one of the reasons why canola has been primarily grown in the cooler cropping regions until now. Whether it’s the vigour of the newer varieties, improved cropping practices or just good luck with the weather, the canola footprint continues to expand. Of course, it helps when the crop is worth $13 a bushel. Last year’s crop darling was lentils. Lentil acreage has contracted this year. Prices are less attractive relative to other options and many producers ran into production problems due to the wet harvest weather last fall. At last week’s Farm Progress Show in Regina, producers swapped stories of seeding successes and failures. How much rain have you had? Did you get everything seeded? Have you got much spraying done? Have you heard the latest price on canola / peas / oats? Producers from the southeast had more time than usual to attend the show, due to the rain. But looking at new equipment isn’t as appealing when your growing season is already a wash out. Producers in many regions could be looking at one of their best years ever. In the southeast, this is a year to just survive in the hope that weather patterns will be kinder next time around. Kevin Hursh is a consulting agrologist and farmer based in Saskatoon.

Manitobans will see and hear new television, print and radio spots supporting the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) and the ability of farmers to have the right to decide the future of their own grain marketing agency, Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger announced last week at the CWB’s head office in Winnipeg. The campaign was launched following the federal government’s indication that it will dismantle the CWB in 2012. The new campaign will focus on highlighting the importance of the CWB to farmers and the provincial economy. The campaign will run for three weeks.
of our marketing agency,” said Allen Oberg, a producer who chairs the CWB board of directors. “We pay for the CWB, we run it, we should decide what happens to it. We are grateful for the leadership being demonstrated by the Manitoba government on this issue. Manitoba farmers can be assured that their provincial government is standing up for their rights.”
Manitoba Premier, Greg Selinger “The CWB is important to so many Manitobans, providing grain growers with an effective and reliable way to sell their grains along with employing hundreds of people in Winnipeg,” said Selinger. “We’re very concerned with the message the federal government is sending to farmers and we won’t just let them pull the plug on the Canadian Wheat Board.” “As farmers, we have the right to determine the future
The CWB head office employs over 400 people in Winnipeg and supports 2,000 indirect jobs in the city, said Selinger. Last year, CWB gross revenues were among the highest in its history at $5.2 billion. It also is the single-biggest user of the Port of Churchill, shipping 600,000 tonnes of wheat last year alone. “It’s not only the farmers who will take a hit. Losing a proven and successful grainmarketing system would mean our provincial economy will see job losses that will affect many communities,” the premier said. The anti-Wheat Board

Crop Report THE WEEKLY
Eighty-two per cent of the 2011 crop has been seeded according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report for the week ending June 13. The five year (2006-2010) average for this time of year is approximately 92 per cent seeded. Last year at this time, 73 per cent of the 2010 crop had been seeded. Rain and thunder showers were recorded for most of the province during the reporting period, as producers in the west central and northern regions were near seeding completion. Producers in the southern regions made some progress. However, the weather and field conditions continue to be very challenging. The southeast is reporting 44 per cent seeded, the southwest 82 per cent, the east-central 86 per cent, the west central 99 per cent, the northeast 98 per cent and the northwest is reporting 99 per cent of the crop seeded.

Across the province, topsoil moisture on cropland is rated as 29 per cent surplus, 57 per cent adequate, 12 per cent short and two per cent very short. Hay and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 28 per cent surplus, 54 per cent adequate, 14 per cent short and four per cent very short. Sixty-five per cent of the oilseeds, 66 per cent of the pulse crops and sixty-seven per cent of the spring cereals are behind normal in development. Forty-five per cent of the fall cereals are at normal stages of development. Sixty-six per cent of the winter wheat, 79 per cent of the spring wheat, 81 per cent of the durum, 74 per cent of the canola, 82 per cent of the lentils, and 77 per cent of the field peas are in good to fair condition. The majority of crop damage is due to flooding and frost. Cutworms and wireworms are also causing damage in some areas.

lobby organization, Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association takes issue with the provincial government campaign, saying Manitobans have plenty to gain from an open market in wheat and barley. “It’s unfortunate that the Manitoba provincial government has decided to turn this into an urban versus rural question by focusing on the potential job losses at the Canadian Wheat Board,” says Rolf Penner, Manitoba Vice President of the Wheat Growers. “This change is all about improving the bottom line for farmers, restoring our property rights and creating greater prosperity throughout the prairies. Manitoba farmers have been voting with their seeders and choosing crops that provide much better returns than wheat and barley. Ending the CWB monopoly creates the opportunity to reverse that trend and encourage much-needed investment in the wheat and barley industry throughout western Canada, including Winnipeg.” The Wheat Growers have applauded the federal government’s reported plan to create a voluntary Canadian Wheat Board (CWB).
