Work underway on wind turbine

As noted in the May 31 issue of Last Mountain Times, Strasbourg is one of four communities that have been selected by SaskPower as locations for wind power demonstration projects. The SaskPower Self-Generated Electricity Demonstration Project for Rinks will explore the potential economic and environmental benefits of using the wind to partially power municipal ice rinks in the province. The Strasbourg project officially got underway on August 17 when a crew began installing the first of 11 twenty-five foot screw piles Photo LMT Staff (shown above) that will secure the 100 foot tall wind turbine tower. More photos on page 11.

Work began just south of Strasbourg, on the west side of Highway 20, mid last week on the SaskPower wind power demonstration project that will offset the cost of providing electrical power to the Strasbourg rink. Under the supervision of Karl Tischler, wind power project program leader with SaskPower, a crew from Swift Sure Screw Piles from the Prince Albert area began installing the steel piles that will anchor the wind turbine tower. The turbine is being erected on land leased from local farmer John deHoop. Local officials and Last Mountain – Touchwood MLA Glen Hart were on hand last Wednesday to observe the start of construction. Hart was instrumental in spear-heading the development of the wind power demonstration project. Although there has been some discussion and concern expressed locally about the impact of the wind turbine being located close to town, a SaskPower spokesperson told Last Mountain Times that there should not be a concern about noise from the turbine as the prevailing winds are from the West and West-Northwest, More on page 11.

Minimum wage to increase Sept. 1 Gainer visits The Government of Saskatchewan will increase the province’s minimum wage on September 1 from $9.25 to $9.50 per hour, which will also result in a corresponding increase to the minimum call-out pay to


$28.50. The increase will affect approximately 22,000 minimum wage earners in Saskatchewan, representing approximately five per cent of the paid workforce in Saskatchewan.

Update on teacher bargaining Late last week, the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation and the Government Trustee Bargaining Committee issued a joint statement saying that a tentative Provincial Collective Bargaining Agreement has been reached. “Teachers have demonstrated their ongoing commitment to Saskatchewan students and their professional conduct throughout this long collective bargaining process,” said Gwen Dueck, chief spokesperson for the Teachers’ Bargaining Committee. “The tentative agreement will

now be presented to them for consideration through a ratification process.” “I want to commend both teams for their efforts in drafting this tentative collective agreement,” said Sandi Urban-Hall, spokesperson for the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee. “The trustee members of the GTBC look forward to sharing the tentative collective agreement with the membership of the Saskatchewan School Boards Association for their information and consideration.”

The tentative agreement is based on the recommendations contained in the Special Mediator’s Report released on July 6, 2011. Over the next several weeks, both parties will be consulting with their membership and implementing respective processes for ratification of a tentative agreement. It is anticipated that the ratification process will be completed by late September 2011. At this time the STF and GTBC have agreed not to release further details of the tentative agreement.

My bank urges its customers to change the secret PIN for their debit cards every three months, as a safeguard against theft. That sounds like a good idea for some people, but totally impractical for anyone over the hill. A PIN has four digits. Theoretically, it shouldn’t be impossible for an elderly person to remember four numbers or letters. Even babies can remember ‘Mama.’ How about a simple word like rain? But when we get to the automatic teller, we punch in snow, or hail, or wind. The association is there, but we fall down on specifics. Another snag is that some of us only use the card when our children take us shopping. That means by the end of three months, we just may have those four digits filed away in a brain already crammed with the memories of a lifetime. Switching to a new number at this point would completely short circuit the system. We’ll try to co-operate though. We’re not supposed to write our PIN anywhere, but we need help, so we pick a set of numbers and mark them on a date on the calendar three months ahead– something to look like an appointment, like 10:30. Would an identity robber, assuming he broke into our home, and assuming he

was suspicious about that 10:30, go to the trouble of checking out doctors, dentists, hairdressers and more, to find out if it was a legitimate appointment? It hardly seems likely. But there’s a risk we ourselves might be misled by the notation on the calendar by the time that date rolls around. It is not time for our annual check-up, we no longer have our own teeth, and our glasses don’t need changing, so that leaves the hairdresser. On the way there, memory comes flooding back. We’re relieved it kicked in before we got there, but we don’t want to go through something like this every three months. We’ll find a word and stick to it. How about ‘mama’?

Provincial news briefs SaskEnergy workers each tentative agreement SaskEnergy and the Communication, Energy and Paperworkers Union (CEP), Local 649, last week announced they have reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year deal. The current collective bargaining agreement expired January 31, 2010. The new three year agreement will be retroactive to February1, 2010. The new agreement is subject to SaskEnergy and CEP Local 649 approval processes. The terms of the proposed deal include a 5.5 per cent general wage increase over three years. In consideration of negotiated efficiencies, the Corporation and the Union also agreed to an additional .25 per cent general wage increase in year two and year three, and an increase in the employee and employer contributions to the Public Employees Pension Plan of .25 per cent in year three of the agreement. Restructuring and changes to existing employee benefit plans are also part of the tentative agreement. The CEP represents approximately 825 of SaskEnergy’s 1,100 staff. Administrator appointed for Carlton Trail The provincial government has appointed Dr. William Cooke of Saskatoon to serve as the Administrator of Carlton Trail Regional College (CTRC) under the authority of The Regional Colleges Act, effective immediately. Dr. Cooke was appointed to replace the previous administrator Graham Pearson. Dr. Cooke was selected through a search process conducted by the Saskatchewan Education Leadership Unit (SELU) of the University of Saskatchewan. Dr. Cooke was most recently the

former Director of Education with the Saskatchewan Rivers School Division. He has spent the past 37 years working as an educator and administrator in the Saskatchewan education system and holds a Ph D in Curriculum and Instruction. Cooke’s appointment follows several months of controversy concerning the operations of CRTC and its St. Peter’s College component. Saskatchewan Party candidate withdraws Corey O’Soup announced last week that he is stepping down as the Saskatchewan Party candidate for Saskatoon Riversdale for personal and family reasons. O’Soup said family pressures have made it impossible for him to dedicate the time required to be a candidate. With O’Soup’s withdrawal from the race, the Saskatchewan Party now has 56 of its 58 candi-

dates nominated for the November 7 provincial election.

Air Traffic Controllers ratify agreement The Canadian Air Traffic Controllers Association (CATCA) announced last week that its members had voted 79 per cent in favour of a contract settlement reached in July with NAV Canada. The new contract, which runs until March 31, 2013, provides a cumulative salary increase of six per cent by April 1, 2012, besides other improvements. CATCA says 85 per cent of the membership cast ballots. Negotiations for a new agreement began last December, the tentative agreement was reached on Sunday, July 24, 2011.

Vehicles and manufacturing stats New vehicle sales in Saskatchewan were up by 13.2 per cent in June of 2011 when compared with June of last year, the third highest percentage gain among the provinces. Nationally, new motor vehicle sales were up by 8.4 per cent over the same period. As well, Saskatchewan led the country in manufacturing sales during the month of June; an increase almost ten times the national average, according to a report on manufacturing sales released by Statistics Canada last week. In June 2011, manufacturing sales were up by 21 per cent over June 2010, the highest increase among the provinces and well ahead of the 2.3 per cent posted nationally over the same period, seasonally adjusted.

Nokomis News New gazebo at Kinsmen Kiddieland Park

  The Nokomis Beautification Committee is excited to announce that phase one, the building of the gazebo in the Kinsmen Kiddieland Park, is complete. Construction of the gazebo was chosen to be the first undertaking because of donations made in memory of Penny O’Carroll. A grand opening of the gazebo is planned for September 14. We continue to raise funds for phase two, the construction of a new play structure and picnic tables. We are sending out letters for corporate donations, but look forward to receiving more local donations as well. The new play structure will be built in the spring of 2012. -article submitted by Maureen Tait -photos by June Munroe and Jen Bedard

Contact Jen Bedard at 5282289 with any questions.            39c   Recently visiting with Earle and Lorna Mansell were Bev and Tom Gordon of Surrey, BC. They also enjoyed a tour of the Nokomis Museum. Bev’s grandfather, the late Jim McGowan, owned the Nokomis Times in the late 1920s – after he moved on to Watrous to publish the Watrous Manitou along with his son, Gordon. Bev’s mom, Marion, attended school here and the McGowan home is where Walter Gulka now resides.

  Earle and Lorna Mansell visited with Betty Udahl in Moose Jaw and also took in The Sound of Music production at the Mae Wilson Theatre.   On August 14, Hazel Chute, Barrie McClughan, Harry Hine and Ilene Harding drove to Rosthern, SK, to attend a live performance of a play titled Heroes at the Station Arts Centre. It was about three French World War I veterans who plan a military expedition to relieve the humdrum of their lives in a retirement home. It was hilarious.   In July, several women from Nokomis travelled by bus to Rosthern to attend a play called Jasper Station. It was about six travellers who met in a train station hoping to fulfill their dreams as they travel on. It was very, very good. If anyone is interested in this one-day bus tour, watch for posters next year. It’s always a very enjoyable day.

Highway work continues

Work is continuing on patching up Highway 20 south of Nokomis. This contracted crew was working at the junction of #20 and #15 at Nokomis late last week. They are attempting to solve the problem with the numerous frost heaves on that section of highway, by digging out the saturated road-bed, placing a rubber membrane on the subgrade, then packing new, drier material on top of it. The gravel surface will later be oil-treated to provide a dust free driving surface. This repair technique has been used on many sections of #20 between Nokomis and Strasbourg, with varying degrees of success. On most of the repaired areas, it is only a matter of hours before the surface is pounded out and broken by the heavy truck traffic on the road, and local residents are again having to look for the ‘sweet spots’ where they can drive to avoid the pot holes.

Geoff Bedard (left), Dale Knouse (right) and Jeff Patterson (not pictured) were the builders. Carolyn Knouse has a look around inside the gazebo.

Nokomis District Museum hosts Kids’ Days throughout summer   There were three Kids’ Days held at the Nokomis District Museum throughout the summer. The first one was held on Tuesday, July 19. The children had another mystery to solve – Victor had taken artifacts from each room and put them somewhere else, and he had locked the kids into the museum until they were back exactly where they came from. They quickly decided where each artifact went, and when they got the last one in place, they found a note from him saying that they were free to go.   The second Kids’ Day was

held on August 2. The kids were in an amazing race! They were given a certain amount of ‘Museum Money’ and they had to buy a train ticket to either Venn or Tate. Then they boarded the caboose for a short amount of time and had to complete mini golf or egg toss. When they were finished, they got a stamp for their passport. When they went to do the second leg of the race, Victor once again showed up and ruined all the cars that were available to rent. So in turn, they ended up chasing Victor all throughout the museum until he jumped on the train

and headed far far away!   The third Kids’ Day was held on August 16 (see photos). On this day, they learned about houses and living conditions in pioneer days. They built their own sod houses out of packing foam and tipis out of paper and straws and learned how a language barrier effected people as they were taught some words in Cree.   We look forward to seeing all of the kids again next year! -article and photos by Melissa Styles Senior Staff Member

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, July 30, 2011, family, friends, and neighbours gathered on SE 1/4 of 23, Twp. 24, Rge 21 in the RM of McKillop to pay tribute to Josef and Christina Schneider who began farming in 1911. Josef and Christina Schneider immigrated to Canada from Austria in 1898. Josef’s first job was bucksawing wood for well-to-do people before

working for the CPR in Winnipeg. After receiving his Naturalization certificate in 1902, Josef’s dream was to farm. In 1911, Josef, Christina and family: Lena (Carr), Beth (Smith), Millie (Decker) and Bill Schneider began farming on the NW 1/4 of 14. Their first home and barn were made out of mud. Christina and her girls were responsible for milking 12 to 17 cows. The cream cheques,

Many came to join the Schneider family as they celebrated 100 years of farming east of Strasbourg.

selling poultry and vegetables were the salvation of the farm. They all worked hard to help Pa pay for the farm, which he received title to in 1920. With these memories the Schneiders felt it was important they celebrate these events 100 years later. Ed Decker, descendent of the Schneiders, opened the afternoon with entertaining stories about the Schneiders. Mark

Johnson told of an intriguing discovery finding one of Josef’s ginger beer bottles in a bluff on Schneider property. Bill Schneider had told Mark the story how his parents threw garbage in this bluff and he found one of his Dad’s ginger bottles several years ago, but there were two. Later, Mark dug up the second ginger beer. A presentation of glass wheat sheaves was given by Donna Schneider to Byron and Glenda Johnson, in appreciation of land rental since the 1970s. Strasbourg Mayor Carol Schultz expressed her kind regards honouring the Schneider 100th farm celebration. The afternoon concluded with a special treat, delicious barbecued sausage ‘Schneider Style’ and 100th Year Celebration cake prepared and served by Ruth and Al Striefski of Strasbourg. Al’s Dad worked for the Schneiders in the 1930s. A toast to Josef and Christina Schneider was given by Donna Schneider. This celebration was an extraordinary occasion viewing a pleasing flax field. The Schneiders appreciated everyone who came to contribute to a memory they will never forget.

Rural Municipality of McKillop No. 220

Pursuant to section 211 of The Planning and Development Act, 2007, Public Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Rural Municipality of McKillop No. 220 intends to alter the proposed Bylaw to repeal and replace the existing OCP for the entire RM. The intent of the new Official Community Plan (OCP) is still to outline the proposed Goals, Objectives and Land Use Policies of the Rural Municipality for Agricultural, Environmental, Industrial, Commercial, Residential and Recreational land uses. Policies to guide the RM’s plans for future developments and avoidance of land use conflict are also outlined in the new document. The proposed OCP includes both a Policy in Section 5.5 limiting Country Residential areas and a Land Use Concept Map showing the potential land for such possible new developments, rezoning or subdivisions in the RM. The Alteration being proposed to this Policy and Map will reduce the allowable area for such Country Residential uses throughout the Municipality.

Pursuant to Section 211 of The Planning and Development Act, 2007, Public Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Rural Municipality of McKillop No. 220 intends to alter the proposed new Bylaw to repeal and replace the existing Zoning Bylaw for the entire RM.

Dancing in New York City   Angela and Austin Mayor and Jim Erickson enjoyed one week in New York City where they stayed at the beautiful Grande Hyatt in Manhattan, home of the Pulse Dance Convention from July 28 to August 3. The Pulse Dance Convention is the hottest summer dance training in New York City and has the ‘biggest names’ in the dance industry on their faculty. Austin enjoyed four days of non-stop dancing intensive classes, along with 1500 dancers from across North America.   The first day started with an explosive ‘Welcome’ which got everyone pumped for an amazing week. Classes were held in the Empire and Manhattan Ballrooms from 11:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. each day, which included jazz, contemporary, modern, hip-hop and street jazz. There were approximately 200 dancers in Austin’s level, including 20 male dancers.   The best part of staying at the host hotel was that they just had to take an escalator to get to classes each day, and they also had a very nutritious market in the hotel, so it provided all the food they needed for breakfasts and lunches during the convention. They had beautiful rooms on the 30th floor and they provided free bottled water and coffee every day.   It was a thrill for the dancers to be taught by all the choreographers, many of whom they watch on television during the So You Think You Can Dance seasons and see in movies. The choreographers were: Brian Friedman, Wade Robson, Dave Scott, Desmond Richardson and favorite, Tyce Diorio, all of So You Think You Can Dance, as well as Lauriann Gibson, who has worked with Janet Jackson, and most recently, with the Lady Gaga tour; Chris Judd who worked with Michael Jackson; Gil Duldulao who has worked with Britney Spears; Brooke Lipton, choreographer of the TV show Glee, and Austin’s favorite, Robert Hoffman, who played the lead role in the hit movie Step Up 2; The Streets. Their choreography was hardhitting, fast and highly energetic. Following each class, they were escorted by security to an area where the dancers had the chance to get autographs and have photos taken.   It was an amazing opportunity for the dancers to ‘live on the edge of glory’ during this time, and they made memories that will last them a lifetime. Angela, Austin and Jim made friends from St. Louis, Texas, New York, and even met up with some dancers from Regina and Raymore. The staff of The Pulse were very helpful, friendly and welcoming.   Having classes finish by supper time each day allowed the three of them the opportunity to get in as much sight-seeing as they wanted. They went on the double decker bus tour at night, which took them on a tour of Manhattan, over the Manhattan Bridge into Brooklyn – which they found breathtaking to see the skyline all lit up. They were within walking distance of Times Square, which they thor-

oughly enjoyed for four nights of shopping and enjoying the sites.   They also took a day tour, and this included sites such as the Empire State Building, Macy’s, United Nations, Little Italy, Chinatown, Chrysler Building, Broadway/Theatre District, Greenwich Village, Soho, and many others. They spent several hours at the World Trade Center site. The World Trade Centers are still in the re-building stage and plans are to have seven new buildings completed by 2014, including the highest, which will be 108 floors called the ‘Freedom Building.’ They witnessed the construction and also toured the 9-11 Remembrance Building. In this building, they saw hundreds of photos and posters of the missing people of 9-11, a virtual presentation, as well as many items that were recovered from Ground Zero. They also toured St. Paul’s Cathedral which stood un-scarred directly across the street from the Twin Towers, and which, during the recovery days of 9-11, became a rest station for rescue workers.   They also toured Grande Central Station, as their hotel was adjacent to it and they rode on the subway several times. They also noted that, amazingly, there is only one gas station in all of Manhattan and the reason for this is that nobody drives; everyone commutes by bus, taxi or subway. The cost of the subway is $2.50 and you can travel anywhere in New York for this amount of money.   They visited Rockefeller Centre, attended a Yankee game at Yankee Stadium and toured Central Park for five hours of walking. Central Park consists of baseball fields, skating rinks, horseback riding trails, tennis courts, lakes, fountains, bridges, bowling greens, gardens, swimming pools, strawberry fields, zoos, playgrounds, etc. They found it to be a fascinating park!! They also toured NBC Studios, and took a harbor cruise to the State of Liberty on Staten Island. They stopped and shopped at South Seaport and enjoyed an afternoon lunch by the ship docks.   They took in three broadway shows while in New York: Stomp, which was playing at the Orpheum Theatre; Mamma Mia, at the Winter Garden Theatre and Cirque Du Soleil, Zarkana at Radio City Music Hall.   New York is a most fascinating city; the shopping, food, broadway shows and nightlife are extraordinary. They loved the crowds, the excitement, the hotdogs on the street, the smell of roasted chestnuts, the security of the NYPD on every street corner, enjoying an ice cream in the park at midnight and the friendly New Yorkers. It’s an experience of a lifetime. So if you have never visited the ‘city that never sleeps’, rest up and be ready for a thrilling experience!! As many of Angela’s friends have stated “you can’t experience the Big Apple only once, you have to live it again.” -article and photos by Angela Mayor

It was another very successful battery collection day for the Bulyea Lions Club on July 11. Lions supporters, Ab and Dave Gorrill offered the use of their farm as the collection depot for this year’s battery drive. Eight pallets of batteries, three layers deep, were collected, then picked up by a truck and transported to Saskatoon. Not only is this a great way to clean up the environment but the Bulyea Lions Club will receive a cheque for approximately $3500.00 for their effort. Pictured at the end of the day were (left to right) Lions members Brian Flavel, Danny Flavel and Keith Flavel and Lions supporter Ab Gorrill.

Canadian farmers encouraged to share bounty   This harvest time, Grain Growers of Canada and Canadian Foodgrains Bank are encouraging farmers across Canada to remember the needs of people experiencing famine and hunger in east Africa.   “Many of us know what’s it’s like to lose a crop to drought,” says Stephen Vandervalk, President of the Grain Growers of Canada. “But we’ve never faced the extreme challenges facing farmers in east Africa, with the total crop failures and no reserves. We want to encourage Canadian farmers to respond to the needs in that region by making a donation to the Foodgrains Bank.”   Farmers can donate all types of grains, oilseeds and pulses to the Foodgrains Bank.   “We have handling agreements with most grain companies in Canada, who are set up to accept donations for the Foodgrains Bank,” says spokesman John Longhurst. “Most grain elevators and companies are registered to receive donations, and should have grain delivery tickets from the Foodgrains Bank on hand.”   Farmers simply have to indicate at the time of delivery how much grain they would like to donate to the Foodgrains Bank and elevator staff do the rest. Tax receipts are issued by the Foodgrains Bank for the value of the grain donated on the day of delivery. To date, the Foodgrains Bank has committed $7.8 million of assistance for the region, providing food for over 230,000 people in Kenya and Ethiopia.

Asian market opens its doors   Canadian ranchers of live breeding cattle, sheep and goats will now benefit from renewed access to the Vietnamese market, a market worth up to $50 million per year. This will lead to the first commercially significant sales

of Canadian live animals into Asia since 2003.   “Canada is now in an enviable position to exploit the high quality of our Canadian livestock population’s traceability, transparent genetic ability verification systems,

high health standards and, importantly, the willingness of Canadian industry to provide support resources to enable the Vietnamese to take full advantage of Canada’s economically tested cattle, sheep and goat performances,” said Rick McRonald, Executive Director of the Canadian Livestock Genetics Association.   Canadian industry has been working with the government to gain access to the Vietnam market for several years. Vietnam’s Department of Animal Health has now formally approved the Canadian export health certificates for live cattle and live goat and sheep, allowing trade to resume immediately. In addition to live breeding cattle, sheep and goats, Canada also has access for the following related products: all beef from animals of all ages; beef offal (heart, liver, and kidney); bovine semen; bovine embryos; ovine semen; ovine embryos; caprine semen; caprine embryos.

Transformers stolen Regina police are investigating the apparent theft of two large electrical transformers that have gone missing from a SaskPower storage facility in Regina. It is not known when, or how, the heavy units were removed from the SaskPower property, but police suspect heavy equipment would have been used to move the two units, weighing 644 pounds, and 816 pounds. The motive for the theft is thought to be the salvage value of the copper and aluminum coils inside the transformers, but police and SaskPower officials caution that the transformers may also pose a potential health hazard for those handling them. The transformers may contain trace amounts of PCBs which are known to cause cancer and other health problems. Anyone with information related to this matter is asked to contact the Regina Police Service, or CrimeStoppers.

Psychology for Living

Do you, or does someone you know suffer from ‘strong woman syndrome’? Okay, I just made up the term, but after reading on, you might agree that perhaps it really does exist. I am thinking of the woman who is always there for everyone else. She is the one we can count on to listen, to help out, and to be strong. She takes care of her children,


Do you suffer from ‘strong woman syndrome’? partner, parents and maybe even her boss. No task is too small, and somehow she always finds the time to do for others. Out in the world, at least, she projects a positive mental attitude, and usually has a smile for everyone. She does not take enough time for herself though, because she is way too busy for that. Eventually things start to catch up to her. She may start to become exhausted, or life hands her one more ball than she is able to juggle. Still, she tries to do it all. Her physical health may start to suffer, or she may experience anxiety or depression. Because she has always been the strong one, she cannot, or will not ask for help. She truly may not know how to be on the receiv-

ing end. Her self-esteem may be affected, because she feels weak. What she must come to realize is that we all are entitled to a ‘time out’, that we cannot play the role of the strong one forever, and that most of those we have been there for, would consider it an honour to trade places for a while. Recognizing what we need, and being able to ask for it is not a sign of weakness, but rather, requires courage and strength.

Celebrating a 25th or 50th

Wrestling In The Dust: Genesis 32:22-31 This is no way to treat a king, certainly not the King of the universe, rolling around in the dust grunting and grasping, but that is the way it was with Jacob. Most of the images of God in the Old Testament are courtlier than that: people coming up to the throne, bowing down and asking for what they need, not the rough and tumble encounter of Jacob. But what of a God that is ready to get down and wrestle? If it were not for a couple of episodes camping out, the story of Jacob would look as if he never met God. He led a checkered life of material success and bitter family troubles. Who would have known that he was about to meet God? Our encounter with God is supposed to be as apparent as that of Jesus or the Apostle Paul or the prophet Isaiah, I’m sure, but what if it is more like that of Jacob? What if we roll in the dust with God? Our churches tend to be for those who have a courtly relationship with God, but if we had all the Jacobs there on Sunday morning, we would have to bring in chairs. Consider all the people who have a sense of kinship with God but

no theology to go with it. That was Jacob. What is their entry into the church? They may not be ready for all of our creeds and the doctrines, yet they wrestle. They wrestle with the emptiness of life apart, wrestle with the burden of sin and quilt that is our common lot, wrestle with the enemies of their souls, and then sometimes wrestle with the angel of

the Lord. What can the courtly say to this person clawing and kicking in the dust? What can the courtly say about God in the same dust? Perhaps all we can do is to tell Jacob, there in the dust, to hang on for his dear life. Pastor Don Hansen St. John and Norrona Lutheran Parish Strasbourg

Norrona Church and Spirit Led will present an evening of Gospel Music on Saturday, August 27 at 7:00 p.m. There will be a campfire and wiener roast. This event is a fundraiser for aid to the famine in Africa, and a free will offering will be taken. FaithLife Financial is a co-sponsor of this event. 39c

The Painted Lady – Mary Whitehouse is putting on two day workshops in Strasbourg, on ‘floorclothes,’ Sundays, Mondays, and/or Tuesdays, September, October, November. Call 725-7950 or evenings 725-3111 for more information. 39-40c On Saturday, August 13, approximately 130 people gathered at the McKenzie farm west of Strasbourg, for a Garden Concert. Lois Mullin approached Bill McKenzie some time ago asking if they would consider having a House Concert. Bill and Donna decided they would go with an outdoor Garden Concert and the day was perfect for the event. People gathered around 5:00 p.m. and toured Bill and Donna’s beautiful yard. It is just breathtaking and sheer amazement that there could be a farmyard in Saskatchewan that runs a close second with the Butchart Gardens. Lois Mullin, a roots and folk singer, goes under the name ‘Un-

derneath The Fray.’ Lois lived in the area for some time and her parents, Marg and George Fisher live in Strasbourg. Lois has her own website and has travelled across western Canada doing over 50 shows a year. She entertained the crowd for over an hour singing various songs, many of which she wrote herself. A fantastic supper of hamburgers, hotdogs, homemade beans, salads and dessert were enjoyed by all. Following supper Lois Munholland entertained the crowd with several jokes. She called for three ladies to volunteer to come on stage as she performed a skit geared to the agriculture theme. The pictures will reflect Miss Massey Ferguson, Miss John Deere and Miss New Holland as Lois dressed them in their evening attire. Miss Massey Ferguson (Donna Rumpel) wore a beautiful red ribbon necklace with large silver fence staples, Miss John Deere (Mae Clarke) wore a lovely green and yellow ribbon bracelet with small silver washers, and Miss New Holland (Nola Schulz) wore a fabulous veil with wire and a yellow ruffled curtain. Everyone enjoyed the little skit, and the laughter could be heard all over the yard. The remainder of the evening was enjoyed listening to our local gals ‘Time of Our Lives’ (Colleen MacDonald, Leandra Cameron

and Renee Sherratt) sing the evening away. Compliments to the McKenzie family for a fantastic get-together, a terrific meal and visit with family and friends for miles around. Sunday, August 14, a fundraiser BBQ was held at Sask Beach Community Hall for Rick, Kim and Jaxon Dell who lost their home July 9 to a fire. Throughout the afternoon, over 300 people attended, giving generous donations, buying 50/50 tickets and

crowd for well over an hour singing songs that we all know and love. The ladies have named their threesome ‘Time of Our Lives’ and I truly believe the name says it all, these three ladies love to sing and they have been seen at many of the local functions and do a wonderful job entertaining. Friends from Saskatchewan Beach, Kannata Valley, High Country Estates, Shore Acres, Silton, Sunset Cove and as far as Southey came to show their sup-

Jaxon, Kim and Rick Dell of Sask Beach were overwhelmed with the many donations, gift certificates and a wonderful afternoon with great friends. hoping to buy the winning ticket for a 100 year Saskatchewan Roughrider Jersey. During the afternoon a horseshoe tournament took place and anyone interested joined in and enjoyed the afternoon fun. Our local gals, Colleen McDonald and Renee Sherratt entertained the

port. Several merchants and local businesses generously donated the food and refreshments and, as well, cash donations. Many tears of joy were shed as the volunteer group presented the Dell family with donations of cash and gift certificates totally over $6,000.00. -Mae Clarke

THANK YOU The Strasbourg Golf Club would like to thank everyone for a successful 2011 Hole In One Tournament. This continues to be possible because of the hard work of volunteers, the donations of cash and prizes from various businesses and of course, the golfers!

The 12th Annual Hole in One Golf Tournament in Strasbourg on Saturday, July 9, was another success. The maximum entries of 22 teams did their best to get a hole in one but the wind played a factor with their efforts! The winning team consisted of Gerry Erhardt, Perry Erhardt, Colby Erhardt, and Keaton Kelln. Closest to the pin winners were: Jim Erickson, Dan Kerth, Keith Flavel, Karen Mario, Perry Erhardt, Lucas Frison, Barry Wideman, Ron Griffin, Bill Reid, Ron Craswell, Colby Erhardt, Gary Dickie, Gord Jensen, Brian McKnight, Floyd Pieper, Keaton Kelln, Gerry Erhardt, and Allan Schultz. The Strasbourg Golf Club appreciate everyone who came out and supported this year’s tournament.

Good fishing continues Amateur Golf Championship Dale Dreger of Strasbourg caught this jackfish at Rowan’s Ravine the middle of August. The fish was a whopping 21 lbs. and over 40 inches long.

Hockey world hoping for Crosby comeback Sidney Crosby is showing up on our TV sets every couple of hours selling skates and sticks for a Canadian sporting goods firm – personally, I prefer ‘Croz’ over Sid’s choice, ‘SC87’– but the big question is this: Will Sidney show up in the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup during the 2011-12 National Hockey League season? When we last saw the best hockey player in the world, he was skating groggily off the ice after getting smashed into the end boards in a game against Tampa Bay, five days after getting his bell rung with an elbow to the head January 1 in the Winter Classic outdoor game against Washington Capitals. The ‘upper body injury’ turned into a season-ending concussion and it doomed the Penguins Stanley Cup playoff hopes. Hockey fans can only hope it didn’t doom Crosby’s career.

The list of players whose careers ended prematurely by concussion is long – and, unfortunately, getting longer. Eric Lindros’s grey matter got mangled and he joined his brother Brett in early retirement. Marc Savard of Boston has had two serious concussions – he played in only 25 games last season – and speculation is that his career is over. Keith Primeau didn’t get to his prime before his NHL time was up and Pat LaFontaine was almost as good as Crosby is today, but concussions prematurely ended his career in 1998. If Crosby’s career was to end, it would sadly rank with the ‘what-ifs’ associated with the likes of early-retired Sandy Koufax, Barrie Sanders and Bobby Orr. What must be worrisome to fans of the Penguins is that offseason news about Crosby has been muted. If all were well, the trumpets of Sid’s 100 per cent recovery would be blaring. We’ve heard he’s skating a bit, and spending quiet time

back home in Coal Harbour, Nova Scotia, not to mention his SportChek commercials, but there has been no definitive word that Sid’s completely healthy. Which is horrible news for the NHL. Last year, he was so far ahead of the field in the NHL scoring race at mid-season that Gretzky references were occasionally made. Hockey fans can only hope the comparisons this season continue to be with Gretzky, and not Lindros or LaFontaine. • R.J. Currie of sportsdeke. com: “Quarterback Matt Leinart changed his mind about joining the Seahawks and re-signed with the Texans. This may be because a) Seattle signed Tarvaris Jackson, or b) the bench is warmer in Houston.” • Comedy writer Jerry Perisho: “Tiger Woods’ recentlyfired caddie, Steve Williams, caddied Adam Scott to victory in the Bridgestone Invitational. The only thing that could have made it sweeter would have been Elin Nordegren giving

Brad Phelps of Saskatoon and Scott Thompson of St. Walburg both made the cut at the 2011 Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship in Winnipeg following Round 2 action on Friday, August 12. Phelps fired a 2-under-par 69 on day two and was in a tie for 41st place at 3-over-par for the competition. Thompson, meanwhile, shot an even par 71 and was at +4 for the week and in a tie for 56th place. The five other Saskatchewan golfers in the field, including Brad Blair of Lanigan, missed the cut. Cory Renfrew of Victoria, BC and Wilson Bateman of Spruce Grove, AB shared the lead after two days at 7-under-par. Action wrapped on August 12 in the Willingdon Cup team competition with Saskatchewan finishing in a tie for 7th place at 13-over-par. Ontario won the overall team title at 11-under-par. Round three was played Saturday at the Niakwa Country Club, and both golfers from Saskatchewan continued to display respectable results. Scott Thompson of St. Walburg and a Golf Saskatchewan Public Player, fired a 2-over-par 73 to go to +6 for the week and is now in a tie for 51st place. Brad Phelps of Saskatoon shot a 7-over-par 78 and was +10 for the tournament and in a tie for 65th place. Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, ON led the tournament at 9-under after firing a 7-under-par 64 on Saturday. Final round action was played Sunday, August 14 at the Niakwa Country Club.

from the sidelines Williams a big sloppy wet kiss on the 18th green.” • Another one from RJ Currie: “St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina got suspended five games for a confrontation with umpire Rob Drake. On the bright side, drought-stricken farmers in the Midwest have invited him to yell at their crops.” • Greg Cote, Miami Herald: “Danica Patrick confirms she will move from IndyCar to NASCAR next year. Be interesting to see if she can carry not winning to a whole new level.” • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “Earnhardt Ganassi Racing fired two crew members after they were arrested on marijuana-related charges. Suspicions were reportedly aroused when the engine kept smoking.” • Comedy writer Alan Ray, on Cowboys owner Jerry Jones not taking exhibition games too seriously: “He only interferes during the first quarter.” • Budd Bailey of the Buffalo News, on pizza-chain mogul Alex Meruelo saying he’ll keep the Hawks in Atlanta: “Basketball fans were happy he didn’t buy it to go.”

• Another one from Cote, on the NFL’s new random tests for human growth hormone: “Why random? I’m no doctor, but wouldn’t it be smart to target the guys whose necks are roughly the width of their shoulders?” • More clever wordplay from Perry: “In Friday’s 1-0 loss to the Angels, the Mariners had a runner picked off first, another caught trying to steal second and yet another nabbed rounding third too far. Just one foolhardy tag at home, and the M’s would’ve gotten picked for the cycle.” • Matt Tiffany of the San Diego Union-Tribune, on Plaxico Burress announcing his own signing with the Jets: “Don’t shoot the messenger.” • Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel: “And to think I used to wish I could play golf like Tiger Woods, and now Tiger Woods wishes he could play golf like me.” • Bianchi again: “A Baptist preacher at a NASCAR race in Nashville last week said the invocation and gave thanks for, among other things, ‘GM Performance Technology and Sunoco Racing Fuel.’ Only

by Bruce Penton in NASCAR could Jesus be turned into a corporate spokesman.” • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: “This is so Dennis Rodman. In his Hall of Fame speech, he thanked Howard Stern but not David Stern.” • Snipped from Perry’s ‘Sideline Chatter’: Reader ‘Ed,’ to The New York Times, on the best reason to keep going to Mets games: “Because when you call up to order tickets and ask them what time the game starts, the clerk says, ‘What time can you be here’?” Care to comment?

Obituary Paul Ruckle

August 6, 1922 – August 18, 2011 Paul Anthony Ruckle passed away peacefully on August 18, 2011 at Regina General Hospital at the age of 89 years. He was predeceased by: parents, Joseph and Karoline; sister, Alice; brother, John; and son, Blake. Paul is survived by: his wife, Luella; daughters, Barb (Bob) Sentes and May Molofy (Kevin Engleking); and grandchildren, Sarah, Abby (Derek Karlunchuk), Lindy (Wade Mills) Sentes, Cameron and Jenna Molofy; and great-grandchild, Carson Karlunchuk.

Ritz continues to ignore reality The Nipawin Journal recently ran an editorial featuring Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz’s usual rhetoric about his government’s plan to kill the CWB’s single desk selling authority. Predictably, he begins by pointing to the Conservative majority as being the indicator of what Western farmers really want. But the

Semans News

truth is most farmers don’t accept the general election vote as being anti-CWB. There were numerous issues on the table and a lack of a credible opposition. Ritz states that under the new system, market control will be turned over to the farmers themselves. This is false and misleading logic because farmers have con-

trol now – they own, direct and fund the CWB. Under the private system, farmers will not be marketing but taking the price from the big three or four grain companies and competing against the lowest bid throughout the world. The boards of directors will be situated in foreign countries, and this is where prof-

its will go. Obviously, Ritz’s new system will not provide one ounce of farmer control or real input. And so, how is this truly empowering farmers? The reality is that Minister Ritz is choosing to ignore reality. E.A. Wayne Focht Raymore, SK Disclaimer: the views expressed are those of the writer

For nearly two decades, stumped Canadians have been asking garden pro Gerald (Jerry) Filipski these and other tough questions about their gardens, and his well-thought-out answers have appeared weekly in his popular newspaper column. Now Jerry has compiled those questions and answers for the beneďŹ t of all perplexed Canadian gardeners. Here’s just a sampling of topics covered in the recently published 240 page volume: Just Ask Jerry: Good Answers to Tough Gardening Questions: • What to do about speciďŹ c problems such as tomato blossom end rot, mildewy peas, anthills, dew worms, unsightly patches of lawn, browning spruce needles, overgrown trees and cracked trunks • Top ten lists of the best annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs • Best choices for locations that are sunny or shady, damp or dry, plus low-maintenance alternatives • Attractive plant combinations for containers including fruits, vegetables and herbs • The dirt on soil and how to amend it so that things actually grow in it • Seasonal care and maintenance including pruning, watering, weeding, deadheading, dividing, composting and mulching • Which tools and equipment are handy
