New green space dedicated in Strasbourg

The town of Strasbourg is thrilled to have a new green space on Mountain Street for everyone to enjoy. The dedication of this area was held on Saturday, September 17. The small parklike lot on the main street next to the post office, was designed and developed by Lisette Parkin of Prairie Roots Tree Care and Landscaping. The benches have been donated by families in memory of a loved one and the tables from groups in town. It is expected that the green space will become a favourite spot for local residents and visitors alike, as they take a morning or evening stroll, or perhaps take their noon lunch break on a park bench. As it has been renovated, the lot is a significant improvement over its previous status as an old vacant service station lot. The green space has been more than a year in the making, with the final touches being put on over the summer, after the sod was laid in mid-June. More photos on page 7.

$34 million more for flood costs

Inside:

  The provincial government announced late last week that it will provide an additional $33.9 million to the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority to cover costs related to this year’s unprecedented flooding. $22 million will cover additional costs incurred through the Emergency Flood Damage Reduction Program, which was designed to help communities, rural municipalities, businesses and individuals prepare for anticipated spring flooding. The program assisted more than 1,100 clients, much more than the 650 originally anticipated.   “The exceptional spring runoff this year meant many more citizens and communi-

ties requested assistance than anticipated back in February,” Minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority Dustin Duncan said. “The Premier made a commitment at that time to ensure assistance was available to those who needed it. These additional funds will cover the costs and ensure assistance is available in case of further flood threats through the fall.”   Under the Emergency Flood Damage Reduction Program the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority provided engineering assistance and shared the cost of flood protection measures. Evaluations of projects so far indicate approximately

$10 in flood damages were prevented for each dollar invested. Additional funding is also being provided to allow Watershed Authority to complete work on emergency flood projects at Fishing Lake and the Waldsea, Deadmoose and Houghton lakes flood control projects and to repair damage at dams and related infrastructure damaged by the high water.   Total project funding allocated to the Watershed Authority for emergency response to the 2011 flood is $76 million. The Federal Government has agreed to pay a portion of these flood prevention costs, but the exact federal contribution is not known yet.

New Board for CTRC   The provincial government last week announced the appointment of a new five-member board for Carlton Trail Regional College (CTRC). The new board members are: Denis Bergerman, Humboldt; Martin Chicolo, Southey; Luz Marina Dominguez, Wynyard; Glenn Hepp, Humboldt; and Leon Winkel, Humboldt. The appointments are effective September 29.   Officials say the new board was chosen based on best practices and under the authority of The Regional Colleges Act. Applications were received through a call for expressions of interest on the ministry’s website and in newspapers within the CTRC region. A four-member evaluation committee, made up of ministry staff and a representative from the Saskatchewan Education Leadership Unit (SELU) from the University of Saskatchewan was established to evaluate applications and make recommendations to the minister. The new board will be responsible for hiring a CEO and determining dates for future meetings. In addition, board orientation and training will be initiated immediately with the support of both the College and the ministry.   The changes to the board come after recent controversy concerning the CTRC’s management and governance practices.

Downey remembers former teacher   Former Nokomis area resident John Downey sent a note recently, advising June and Alex Munroe that his former Nokomis grade school teacher Wilma Laing had passed away in August.   Dr. John Downey wrote: “As one of the students of Miss Laing in the mid-forties at Nokomis, I wish to acknowledge the great benefit I obtained from her dedicated teaching, not least for the four years she taught my cousin Bell Downey and me Latin after school hours. She and principal R.W. Grey gave me an inordinate benefit that endured and carried me through a long medical and academic life. I am so pleased that I was able to contact her a number of years ago to tell her so.”   Wilma Laing had taught for a number of years in

Nokomis’ Sydney Reynolds on hit YTV show   How many young teens from Saskatchewan can say they travelled across Canada training for the army or taming a swarm of bees during their summer vacation?? Out of more than a thousand auditions, 13-yearold Sydney Reynolds from Nokomis has been selected to take part in the hugely successful hit reality show, YTV’s In Real Life Season 3. Reynolds is one of two Saskatchewan participants in this year’s show.   In an interview with Last Mountain Times, Sydney explained how she became involved with the show: “My cousin sent me an email this past spring about the casting call for the program, and I thought it would be something interesting to do. I like to do BIG things! So, I filled out the application form online, and made a three minute video to go with it. I sent the information in on a Thursday morning, and they phoned me back at 6 o’clock that same evening. My video showed

me jumping on a trampoline, climbing a tree, laying in the snow, at the farm … stuff to show them that I’m active, athletic and tough. When they called me back, we did a quick phone interview. A couple of weeks later I received an email saying I’d made it to the next round. They had narrowed it down to 50 kids out of the original 1,200 applications, and I was invited to a one-hour interview in Saskatoon.” (Sydney’s audition video submission can be viewed at http://vimeo. com/21426987 )   Sydney’s mom, Janice Reynolds, says she feels the key to Sydney being selected was her video submission. “I think they really, really liked her video. It was quite a unique video that showed her doing things around Nokomis, rather than her just sitting there talking. She edited the video herself, something she learned to do on her own in her free time.”   Sydney is obviously very excited about her opportunity to participate in the show, especially since she wasn’t even aware of the show until she got involved with the application process. “I normally didn’t watch that TV channel, or really much TV at all.”   In Real Life is an elimination style reality show. Ten episodes were taped over the summer, and participants are eliminated as the series progresses to its final episode. The taping is

done, and the show is finished filming, however, the participants are sworn to secrecy and cannot reveal how they placed in the eliminations. The final episode airs on YTV on December 12, 2011.   “I would love to do lots of different things with TV,” Sydney explained. “I would try my best, but I’m not sure about doing more reality style shows as a teenager, perhaps I’ll have to wait until I’m an adult for that. This was great experience, and I had a lot of fun!”   Sydney is in Grade 9 at Nokomis school, and prior to becoming involved on the YTV show, she had considered a career in astronomy or psychology when she completes her schooling. Now, she has the ‘film bug’ and feels her career choice may lean more in that direction.   In this season on In Real Life, 18 kids, ages 12 to 14 years old, from 16 different Canadian cities, join the race across North America in some of the toughest yet most memorable experiences of their lives. Their goal is the ultimate prize – to win university tuition and an allexpense paid family vacation. In Real Life premieres Monday, October 3 on YTV and then airs each Monday (skipping October 31) until December 12. Repeat broadcasts will be aired on late Friday evenings, and on Sundays at noon.   The premiere episode (Army Recruits) finds the challengers put through their paces in their very first experience as army recruits! They navigate a tough obstacle course, test their resourcefulness by setting up camp in the field and ride Jeeps in hostile territory as part of a patrol. With drill instructors pushing them to their limits, challengers battle their way towards victory in the first twist of the season, this year challengers get to choose their own teammates!   YTV programming is seen in over 11 million homes across Canada.

that last one. Anyway, I was somewhat disappointed to see that they didn’t even mention the classic step on the upturned rake and have the handle come up and stroke you between the eyes. Now that would actually hurt, but it’s also hilarious. Especially if you’re the guy in the lawn chair with the cold one.   Whoa. September’s kind of crept up on me like a cheap pair of underpants. Needed to come up with something here, so I dredged something up that was actually in the works last fall.   It was coffee break, so I was having my coffee and eating a surprisingly good weight watchy type of cookie. Actually, I had about four of them, because you have to make up the difference somehow.   Anyway, I was also reading a magazine at the same time entitled Family Safety & Health, the Official Magazine for Off the Job Safety. Since it was the ‘official’ magazine, I thought that this is the one to read, chock full of life saving safety tips.   As I kept reading though, it became more and more apparent some one had some time to kill or some sort of quota to fill. My first suspicion came when one of the articles was titled Unintentional Accidents on the Rise. Doesn‘t that sort of go without saying? Wouldn’t be accidents otherwise. Speaking for myself, all my accidents have been total surprises. Besides, I have enough to do in a day without the hassle of planning them.   Further reading brought me to a three page piece devoted to the problem of injuries incurred while raking leaves. Now I’m not really sure how much of a clod you actually need to be to suffer an injury severe enough to become a statistic while raking leaves, but according to the numbers in this magazine, in 2004 some 12,000 people managed this feat.   So in order to stem this rampant epidemic of yard work carnage, they offered some helpful advice on some of the problem areas. They suggested that you survey the area first for any hidden obstacles that you could trip over, like branches, kids toys. maybe the kids themselves, etc. So obviously tripping is a major hazard.   Apparently, so is banging your head as they earnestly suggested you look out for low branches and to never wear a hat or scarf over your eyes while raking. If it’s that cold that you have to have a scarf over your face, there’s probably snow on the ground already, so you shouldn’t be out there in the first place. Probably be some mandatory helmet laws coming down the pipe.   They also suggest that you take frequent breaks and remain hydrated. In other words, just sit in a lawn chair with a cold one and make your teenager do it. Also, there’s no twisting allowed. Don’t toss leaves over you shoulder or off to the side. It’s been a year since I’ve started this piece, and I still haven’t come up with a reason why I would want to toss leaves over my shoulder. Probably no shouting either.   You might have to think on

  So as you venture out into the perilous world of yard care, remember the words of Sgt. Esterhaus from the old Hill Street Blues series, “Hey, be careful out there.”   Roland Richter lives in Nokomis, SK. Disclaimer: the opinions expressed are those of the writer.

Feasibility study for bio-based jet fuel

  Oilseed producers can look forward to tapping into a new emerging industry with a study that will assess the feasibility of producing renewable bio-based jet fuel. The federal government last week announced an investment of over $150,000 to determine the economic feasibility of developing this industry in Saskatchewan, as part of National Biotechnology Week celebrations.   The project, led by Saskatchewan-based Ag-West Bio Inc., will assess the feasibility of using dedicated industrial oilseed crops Camelina sativa and Brassica carinata to produce renewable jet fuel. The study will look at feedstock production, processing requirements and potential commercial partners, as well as logistics and infrastructure. The bio-based jet fuel industry is a very specialized field and AgWest Bio will use external service providers with expertise in each of the critical activities to interview industry experts and prospective customers, and review research information to complete the three components of the feasibility report.   “With the aviation industry committed to developing sustainable biofuels, there appears to be huge potential in this area, both for producers, and for the province as a whole in downstream processing,” said Mike Cey, VP Corporate & Business Development for Ag-West Bio. “This study will allow us to make informed decisions in order to map out the best path forward in further developing this exciting opportunity in Saskatchewan.”

  I hosted a camp on nature, friendship, and the environment at Last Mountain Regional Park from September 2 to 5. I am working on my Canada Cord in Pathfinder. This is my silver camp.   There were lots of girls there who came from Strasbourg, Craven, Maidstone, Regina, Punnichy and Lumsden. We had lots of fun! We went to the bird observatory, played lots of games, made new friends, had campfires, sing-a-longs, slept in tents and many more things. There was rain the first day, then it was sunny for the remainder of the camp!   Vanessa Pratchler Strasbourg Guiding 

  I would like to give a big thank you to Barry Hunter and staff at LMRP for letting me have my camp. I would like to give a big thank you to Janice Graessli, Cheryl Dodds, Jenn Lefebvre, and Kristin Mosher for helping me at my camp, and a big special thank you to Lorna Gritzfeldt for being our home contact person, Barb Boughner for being the First Aider, Bonnie Pratchler for cooking and for being the responsible guider, Martin Pratchler for being our special helper bringing things forgot at home. Vanessa Pratchler

for food banks across the country. One hundred per cent of donations go to Canadian food banks.   “Canadian farmers and agribusiness operators offer some of the world’s safest and highest quality food, and they are coming together to share it with those who need it most,” says Greg Stewart, FCC President and CEO. “Through Drive Away Hunger, we really have an opportunity to make a difference. The program allows FCC to support the communities where our customers and employees live and work.”   This year, FCC Drive Away Hunger program tour will take place the week of October 10 in Regina at the FCC Corporate Office location. FCC is also collecting food and cash donations in every field office across Canada from September 19 to October 14 to help reduce hunger nationwide.   “Thanks to partners, schools and customers, we raised more than 129,000 pounds of food for Saskatchewan food banks last year,” says Corinna MitchellBeaudin, FCC Vice-President of Manitoba and Saskatchewan Operations. ” We’re amazed by the generosity of our partners and the overwhelming response from people across Canada who show their support for the program.”   FCC Drive Away Hunger began in 2004 when an employee in Ontario organized a local tractor tour. He collected food donations from his local community as a way to give back and help food banks serve people in need. Since then, FCC Drive Away Hunger has grown dramatically, with over 5.2 million pounds of food collected.

Fire Department LMPH Garage Sale another great success receives donations   Officials from several local businesses gathered at the Strasbourg & RM 220 Fire Hall in Strasbourg on Monday morning, September 19 to present donations to the Fire Department to help pay for their new $250,000 fire truck. The department received four separate donations on Monday: from the Bulyea Co-op; from local Affinity Credit Union; another joint donation from the Bulyea Co-op and the local Affinity Credit Union branches; and from South Country Equipment which operates John Deere machinery dealerships Raymore, Southey, Regina, Assiniboia, Montmarte, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, and Mossbank.   Following the cheque presentations, Fire Chief Ron Griffin gave the officials an informal and informative tour of the new fire truck, providing a detailed explanation of the various features and capabilities of the unit. Monday’s presentations were part of an on-going fund-raising campaign by the Strasbourg & RM 220 fire department.

The Last Mountain Pioneer Home Activity Department’s Garage Sale was held on Saturday, August 27, 2011. A large turnout from the community supported this annual fundraiser, which once again proved to be a great success! The hot dog lunch was looked after by volunteer, Kathy Avery-Rusnak and her granddaughter.

A.L. MVP? Verlander on the verge   His initials might be J.V., but he’s definitely on the varsity. And after this year, Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers will probably add three other initials to the end of his name: MVP.   A pitcher winning the most valuable player award? Blasphemy to many old-time baseballers. How can a player be an MVP, they argue, when he plays only once every fifth day, spending the other four jogging in the outfield, throwing on the sidelines, snoozing in the bullpen and eating a lot of sunflower seeds.   Verlander has been so dominant on the mound for the Tigers that veteran observers are using his 2011 season as a barometer to measure some of the greatest seasons of all time. He will almost certainly be a unanimous winner of the Cy Young award as the American League’s best pitcher. As for the MVP, ask yourself this question: Where would the Tigers be this year without Verlander on their pitching staff?   The playoff-bound Tigers don’t want to think about it, but how’s this for a stat: In his last 26 starts, Verlander has a record of 22-2. Overall this year (through September 18), he’s 24-5. Replace that outstanding record with a middle-of-the-road 11-11 pitcher, and the Tigers’ may not have coasted to the A.L. Central title, which they wrapped up mid-month. Valuable mem-

V I EW P OI NT Do you believe in Angels?

Do you believe in Angels? I do. Angels come in many forms, appear in many places. I know because I’ve seen them. In our town they congregate at the Last Mountain Pioneer Home. There they minister to all who need them. The loving, kind care they give is worth more than can ever be repaid to them.   Dale and I cared for my elderly mother in our home for nearly ten years. It was my privilege, not always an easy one. The last year in fact was truly difficult. When I was no longer able to meet Mom’s needs I had to ask for help. What tremendous support we received! From administration to maintenance, from doctoring to nursing, and dayto-day care, both at Central Park Lodge and Last Mountain Pioneer Home, all these people lifted us up and took us in... Angels...   No detail went unnoticed, no opportunity to help, comfort, or cheer was missed.

And these ministries were extended not only to my Mother, but also to me. As Mom’s situation deteriorated there was alot more work, difficulty, sadness. Those kind words and hugs were treasured then and won’t be forgotten. I often mentioned that I was centered on only one person in only one room and my heart was breaking. They have forty! The strength to go on working with love is not to be measured. Unfortunately their dedication too often goes unrecognized. All of us acknowledge the exemplary service provided by all these people. We are so grateful for your work and for the love with which it is clothed. We ask God’s blessing on all you Angels. Any time you need to be assured that Angels are real, pay a visit to your local seniors’ home. You will see and believe! Bobbi Racette Strasbourg

ber of the team? Obviously. Most valuable in the league? Almost certainly.   First baseman Miguel Cabrera, catcher Alex Avila and DH Victor Martinez are all having outstanding years at the plate, but it’s Verlander carrying the team on his shoulders. Manager Jim Leyland may rest his ace a little bit down the stretch as the Tigers prepare for the playoffs, but he’s probably good for enough starts to win 26 (not a stretch). If he does so, it would be the most victories by a pitcher in the A.L. since 1990, when Oakland’s Bob Welch won 27.   Verlander’s season to remember is not just about victories. He leads the league in strikeouts and batters are hitting just .190 against him. He has allowed only 53 walks in 244 innings, and his WHIP (walks and hits allowed per inning pitched) is a remarkable – and leaguebest – 0.91. Overall, he stars in more hitters’ nightmares than any other demon or pitcher.   Oh, and one more thing: He threw his second career no-hitter this season, and came within an eyelash of a third. “Doesn’t surprise me,” Leyland told Tim Brown of Yahoosports.com “And it wouldn’t surprise me if he gets another one at some point in his career. That’s how good his stuff can be on certain days.”   • Headline at Fark.com: “Justin Verlander pitched last night. You know the rest.”   • Comedy writer Jerry Perisho: “Driver Danica Patrick is

stirring up trouble by leaving the IndyCar circuit and moving to NASCAR. She’s 1-for-112 in IndyCar; if she were a baseball player, she’d be riding the bench in single-A.”   • Comedy writer Jim Barach: “NBC has signed a nineyear package with the PGA to televise golf tournaments. The only concern is by then, Johnny Miller will be so grouchy he will keep yelling at all the pros on the practice green to get off his lawn.”   • Scott Ostler, San Francisco Chronicle: “Jeremy Shockey rescued a Panthers teammate choking on a chunk of meat in the team cafeteria. One report said Shockey used the Heimlich manoeuvre. However, witnesses say Shockey slammed the victim in the back, causing him to cough up the meat. I believe that’s called the James Harrison manoeuvre.”   • Headline in TheOnion.com: “Report: Kevin Durant success could lead to more NBA teams drafting tall players.”   • Perisho again: “The belly putter is becoming a popular trend in the PGA. John Daly says he can’t use his bellybutton to hold a club because that’s where he keeps his beer.”   • Red Sox DH David Ortiz, to The Boston Globe, on his team’s September nosedive: “Nobody’s to blame except everybody.”   • Budd Bailey of the Buffalo News, on A’s GM Billy Beane attending the premiere of Moneyball in Toronto on Friday:

Screwy carrot

Catherine Pratchler from the Govan area grew this carrot in her garden this summer. “In all the years, I never saw one grow like this,” she said. Upon close examination, you will note that the bottom tip of this otherwise ordinary six inch long carrot is actually spiral-shaped …as if it was screwed into the ground. That brings about a whole realm of possibilities: perhaps this carrot could be cloned into a variety that you could leave in the ground until freeze-up, and then you could just un-screw them to harvest them; or, for storage purposes, you could create a large scale pegboard, and simply screw the carrots into the holes and hang the pegboards on a cool basement wall.

RCMP report Quad and bikes stolen   The Southey Detachment of the RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the persons responsible for the theft of one quad and two dirt bikes. Sometime between Monday, September 5 and Sunday, September 11, two dirt bikes and one quad were stolen out of a garage on a farm in the Cupar area. Police are requesting the public’s assistance in locating these vehicles. Vandalism   On September 16, RCMP responded to a complaint at a farm north of Jasmin, SK, whereby suspects spiked numerous canola swaths with large pieces of metal. When the crop was being combined, two different combines picked up the metal, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars of damage to the combines. The Melville and Ituna RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in solving the crime. Man struck by vehicle   On September 17, at approximately 7:00 a.m., the Punnichy RCMP responded to a report of an unconscious 38 year old male who appeared to have been struck by a motor vehicle on the Gordon First Nation. The male was taken to the Regina General hospital with serious and life threatening injuries. The vehicle driver, an adult male was located at the scene, arrested and subsequently charged

with impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm, driving while disqualified and assault causing bodily harm. The accused was remanded and was scheduled to appear in court in Punnichy on Tuesday, September 20. Names were not released. Beer Garden assault   On September 18, at approximately 12:30 a.m., members of the Punnichy RCMP responded to the beer gardens at the Muskowekwan First Nation rodeo grounds on a report of a male being hit in the head with a beer bottle. Lestock EMS transported the male victim to the All Nations Healing Hospital in Fort Qu’Appelle where RCMP learned the victim had also sustained a stab wound to his abdomen. He was later transported to the Regina General Hospital due to extreme blood loss. The victim’s injuries, although serious are not life threatening. Alcohol was a factor in the incident and the matter remains under investigation. The victim’s name was not released. Chicken truck crash   On Tuesday, September 20 members of the Wynyard RCMP attended to the scene of a semi truck collision on Highway 16 near Elfros. The section of the Highway 16 between Highway 35 and Elfros was closed pending the removal of the truck and cleanup of the spilled load. The truck and trailer which left the road and overturned was loaded with chickens. The driver of the truck was not seriously injured, and cleanup took approximately 1 hour.

Independent trucker Colin Ouellette, of Kenaston, stopped on the highway in front of the Last Mountain Times office in Nokomis last week to check the tie-downs on his load of hay. His load of 24 hay bales was travelling from Drake to a customer near Sovereign, SK, just east of Rosetown.

How self esteem can be more powerful than bullies   Dr. Bill Page would rather teach than do just about anything else any day of the week. “During my career I was an educator and administrator in elementaryand high schools, as well as college, for 33 years,” Page said. “During that time I enjoyed serving as a Boy and Cub Scout master, and a Sunday school teacher. I have seen just about everything children can experience, both positive and negative, and helped these kids solve what many today see as practically unsolvable problems. For the most part, I didn’t have any special technology or divine wisdom. All I had was the head on my shoulders and the heart beating in my chest, and for 33 years those were the only tools I needed.”   Page, a PhD who in retirement became a children’s book author known as Billy D, said that he has dealt with the absolute worst kids in his school and the best ones, too. In most cases, he said that they were one and the same, just on different days. “It doesn’t take a PhD to figure out why a kid bullies another kid, or why that kid lets the other one bully him,” said Page, author of the children’s book series The Marion Series. They are scared of something. The kid who is being bullied is afraid of getting beat up, and the bully is afraid of almost everything. The secret is being able to connect with them and figure out what both kids are afraid of and helping them face and defeat those fears. The heart of the matter is really one of the most basic truths I know: every child is special. If you want to prevent problems, then parents and teachers simply need to re-

Dr. Bill Page

mind kids of this fact on a regular basis. If you tell them often enough, they’ll begin to believe it and feel it, too.”   But as much as Page is an idealist, he also knows he has to channel that idealism to kids through some harsh realism. “I put the characters in my books through some paces,” he said. “They encounter the challenges of responsibility, honesty, selfpride, peer pressure, sibling rivalry, and race relations. They experience the consequences of drug use, over-confidence and facing ridicule. On the other hand, my characters also see the benefits from loving people, befriending them and cooperating with others. My characters are grounded by events that are true-to-life, so that the kids who read them, who are also dealing with the realism in their lives, can relate, understand and learn.”   In that way, Page believes kids who read his stories can unconsciously see the parallels in their own lives, and learn the same lessons his characters learn in his stories. “Is the bully somehow less special than the bullied?” he asked. “Or are both simply good kids in a bad situation who need to see that their lives can be better if they only see how special they are and the difference they can make in other lives? We all need to know where we keep our strength, the parts of ourselves that help us overcome adversities. If our children don’t learn where those places are when they’re kids, they won’t know where to find those places as adults.”   Bill D. Page, PhD, a.k.a. Billy D, is a graduate of Michigan State and St. Louis Universities. He has published two books for children ages nine to twelve, and has others for children two to six near completion. Dr. Page has been a teacher at all levels of public education from elementary through graduate school. He lives with his wife of sixty-three years in Muskegon, Michigan. They have three children, seven grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren. He and his wife are proud to state that there have been no divorces in their immediate family, which has accumulated 181 years of marriage.

Psychology for Living Dealing with illness   I am often asked for advice as to the best ways to respond to a friend who has found that he/she or a family member has a serious illness. We are often not sure whether to avoid the subject, or to talk about it. We don’t know whether it’s helpful to suggest alternative treatments, or to trust that the family has considered all options and has come to a decision. We really want to help, in any way that we can, but often feel so helpless. We certainly do not want to do or say anything that will create more pain.   It is a delicate situation, and many people hold back out of fear of doing the wrong thing. We live in a society that, for the most part, has been trained to suppress emotion when we are beyond the privacy of our own homes. Serious illness creates pain and worry that is always very near the surface, and thus is harder to hide. This is actually a blessing, because suppressing these emotions tends to make things worse. When we are feeling fragile and vulnerable is when we most need support. It is at times like this that we become intensely aware of our interconnectedness, and we realize that if one within our community is hurting, then we all hurt.   If a person is going through a medical crisis, there is learning and growth for all of us. We all share the fear and the pain, as well as the hope. The one who is ill gains strength from the love and support of others. So you do not need to hold back your support.   Of course, there is a need for sensitivity, but sending a card saying how much you care and would

by Gwen Randall-Young like to help extends an invitation, without intruding. Following up with a phone call, asking how they are doing, and again offering help provides another opportunity. If these invitations are received politely but not met with sharing, then it is for us to respect where the person is, and not to press for more information or involvement, or to take this personally.   If you are a close friend, and are more involved with the family, then you are all going through this together, and it is more important to be honest about your feelings. Sharing your feelings can help others to express their emotions. You need to cry together and laugh together. And you can share any information that you have that generates optimism. This is not to say that we go into denial about the seriousness of the situation, but Bernie Siegel says that even if a condition has only a one per cent survival rate, no one can say that this particular individual will not be in that one per cent.   Remember too, that the one who is ill is here to teach us about life and perhaps about death, and these lessons are both profound and enduring.

14 LAST MOUNTAIN TIMES

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2011

Silton / Sask Beach / Kannata Valley News Mae Clarke • 729-3014   On Thursday, September 15 a group of ladies from Strasbourg and area attended the SOFIA House fund raiser held at the Conexus Art Centre in Regina. There were approximately 500 people in attendance and everyone appeared to have enjoyed the wonderful meal and the Mama Mia Fashion Show. There were 13 Live Auction items donated by several Regina businesses. The raffle draw was a $2,000 Air Travel Certificate and Luggage from D & R Roofing and Versace Sunglasses from Future Vision. Of course all of us were winning the raffle draws, but, to our disappointment we did not have the lucky numbers. Randy and Deb Kachluba, D & R Roofing are always very generous sponsors to these worthwhile causes.

  For those of you who are not aware, SOFIA House was established because of the need for ongoing safety and support for families escaping violent homes. SOFIA House opened its doors in October 1988, some 23 years ago and since opening SOFIA House has helped over 400 women and children. There are some very interesting stats that many of us are likely not aware of: 65 percent of women who were assaulted by a partner were victimized on more that one occasion. Children under the age of 15 were harmed or threatened in about ten percent of spousal assaults against women, and four in ten child and youth victims of family violence in 2006, sustained a physical injury. Women stay in violent relationships because of guilt,

NOTICE of ABANDONMENT OF POLL The Rural Municipality of Longlaketon No. 219 Municipal Elections 2011 Whereas Trevor Mohr, Jack Davidson and Scott Hegglin, nominated for the offices of Councillor for the Divisions 2, 4 and 6, respectively, are the only candidates, I hereby give notice that no voting for the offices will take place on October 26, 2011. Dated this 23 day of September, 2011. rd

isolation, fear, and lack of support from family, community or institutions. As well, many women receive threats of further harm or death if they leave. Obstacles such as cultural, geographical, physical or mental barriers, may also prevent women from leaving. Many women love their partners, but no woman wants to be abused, and in many cases leaving an abusive relationship often places the family in greater danger. We don’t know what happens behind closed doors and if we can help in some small way, this is one way of doing just that. If you know of someone who is abused, believe her, and assure her, she is not alone. Let her know that the abuse is not her fault, she does not ‘provoke’ violence no matter what she does, and she cannot help to stop their behavior.   SOFIA House in Regina now houses nine families in two and three bedroom fully furnished apartments, but the need for second stage housing remains great. The majority of funding for programming comes from the community through donations. This event happens about the same time each year and is a very worthwhile cause and extremely interesting and very heartbreaking when you hear what some of these ladies and their children have been through. If you see or hear any signs of physical attack phone 911 or report child abuse to the Department of Social Services.   Sask Express volunteers: Elsa McKenzie, TJ and Claire Castle, entertained the crowd with song, and danced to different music: Honey, Honey, Mamma Mia; Take a Chance on Me, and several others, while the models dressed in between the different sets.   Auctioneer Desmond Plewman had some fun starting off the Live Auction with the sale of the Sask Express costumes. You will notice in the photo, one of our local ladies will be sporting some high top fashion boots at the next upcoming event, Strasbourg Idol. Just to let you in on a little secret, I heard that Carol will be one of the contestants dressed in her dance attire singing Take a Chance on Me. Come out and watch her perform, you never know, she could become one of the new Dancing Queens from small town Saskatchewan. She would not be the first Schultz that made Strasbourg famous! -Mae Clarke

AgNotes

by Calvin Daniels

  What is likely a surprise to no one who has seriously followed the ongoing soap opera of the future of the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB), the majority of farmers don’t appear to want the change the Conservative government is bent on making happen.   The CWB recently released the results of a plebiscite vote it held of farmers, something the Conservatives refused to undertake, because frankly they knew the results would not be favourable of their position on the issue.   Results from the farmer votes had 22,764 Western Canadian wheat growers, or 62 per cent of those who voted, preferring to maintain single-desk marketing for wheat, compared to 38 per cent, or 14,059 respondents, who would prefer to sell their own wheat in an open market.   For barley the vote was closer with about 51 per cent of respondents, or roughly 6,300 barley growers wanting to sell food and malting barley through the single desk, compared to 49 per cent, or 6,014 respondents, who would prefer to

sell into an open market.   About 68,000 ballots were distributed to farmers with a voter turnout of about 56 per cent.   While that may not sound like a huge turnout, it is important to consider the Conservatives are ruling with a majority government based on 61.1 per cent of eligible voters casting votes in the last election, and in 2008 it was 58.8 per cent.   Add in the fact a number of farmers have likely tuned out the debate assuming change is inevitable regardless of farmer votes, and the turnout is a significant one.   And, it does appear the vote of farmers is being dismissed by the Conservative government, which has to come as a surprise to no one.   Gerry Ritz, the federal Minister of Agriculture was quick to state the plebiscite will not sway the Conservatives who will go ahead with plans to eliminate the board’s singledesk marketing structure as of August 2012.   Legislation is anticipated this fall structured to eliminate the single-desk selling of the CWB.   There is a chance a voluntary CWB could arise from

the ashes, where farmers can choose between pooling their grain or selling directly into an open market, although with key markets poached the idea of pooled marketing would be hard pressed to work.   While it is important at times government lead, there are times they need to pause and consider if their vision serves the majority. In this case it is unlikely the Conservative viewpoint is shared by the majority.   History will ultimately determine which side was right. Some I have talked to see a change as the way to prosperity, and for some it may be. For all though it is unlikely.   Other farmers see change as handing farmer dollars to big grain companies. We will see.   The bottom line is, either way, the change will be a benchmark of change for Western Canadian wheat and barley growers. Calvin Daniels is a Yorkton-based ag columnist and writer.

Crop Report THE WEEKLY

  Saskatchewan producers are well ahead of the five-year harvest progress average with 76 per cent of the 2011 crop combined, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report.   Seventeen per cent is swathed or ready to straight-combine. The fiveyear (2006-2010) provincial average for this time of year is 61 per cent combined and 23 per cent swathed or ready to straight-cut. Rain showers late in the week slowed harvest progress in some areas.   Harvest progress across the province varies. The southeast has 84 per cent combined; the southwest 81 per cent; the east central 74 per cent and the west central 76 per cent. The northern regions made great harvest progress dur-

Crop & Livestock Solutions

ing the week. The northeast has 72 per cent combined and the northwest has 59 per cent combined. Seventy-five per cent of the durum, 74 per cent of the spring wheat, 72 per cent of the canola and 33 per cent of the flax have been combined.   Across the province, topsoil moisture on cropland is rated as two per cent surplus, 68 per cent adequate, 27 per cent short and three per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as one per cent surplus, 63 per cent adequate, 31 per cent short and five per cent very short. The majority of livestock producers have adequate or surplus hay and straw supplies going into winter. Farmers are currently busy harvesting, hauling bales and controlling weeds on unseeded acres.

On This Day in History

Canada and the United States have good disease resistance because the goal of these lily breeders has been the production of good garden plants. Lilies hybridized in Holland are primarily for the cut flower trade and tend to be more prone to disease.   The Longiflorum-Asiatic (LA) hybrids have similar characteristics to the Asiatics, but are sturdier, bloom more profusely, and are altogether showier. They can be more prone to colourbreaking virus especially the purple-red varieties. These have been are primarily hybridized in Holland where disease resistance is not high on the list of breeding goals. All are up-facing. Mulch after planting. For xeriscape gardens, Asiatics and martagons are usually the best bet, but a number of LA hybrids will perform well too.   Martagon lilies have very good disease-resistance and tolerate a wide range of conditions. They should be well watered when planted and given another good watering each spring and occasionally in summer during prolonged dry conditions. Otherwise, they require very little additional water, actually preferring being kept on the dry side. Their down-facing blooms are dainty, recurved and often described as turkscaps. Blooming begins during the last week in June and some have as many as 50 flowers per stem. They are best placed in a semi-shady spot.   The best time to plant lilies is mid- to late-September. Choose a site that is well drained and where they will receive at least six hours sun per day. Heavy soils should be amended with fibrous materials such as coarse peat moss. Sharp sand, washed gravel or crushed gravel can be added to beds as well to improve drainage. Lighter soils can be amended with compost or other organic material to improve water holding capacity. However, do not plant bulbs in close contact with rotted manure.   Plant in small groups of three or five bulbs, spaced 20 to 25 cm (8 to 10 in.) apart. In light soils, final planting depth should be 3 times as deep as the bulb’s diameter (= 12 to 15 cm/5 to 6 in. deep); in heavier soils, twice the depth as its diameter (= 10 to 12 cm/4 to 5 in.). To start, dig the hole 5 cm (2 in.) deeper than required, sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of general lawn fertilizer (e.g. 16-20-0 or 11-52-0) in the bottom, add back the 5 cm (2 in.) of soil, then set the bulb in the bottom and cover with soil. Water well. During the first winter, cover with mulch to add an extra layer of protection.   The lilies listed below are tried and true and highly recommended by experienced prairie
