Nokomis volunteers harvest rec centre land

Election underway

Premier Brad Wall

On September 30, the above volunteers harvested the crop on the land south of Nokomis for the Nokomis Recreation Centre, taking them only two hours.

Premier Brad Wall visited the Lieutenant-Governor late Monday afternoon, October 10 to ask him to dissolve the Legislature and issue the writ of election, officially starting the campaign for the November 7 provincial election. Unlike previous provincial elections, the timing of this election comes as no surprise. The Sask Party government set the election date the day after the last election in 2007 – keeping a promise to establish set election dates and ending the governing party’s chance to play games with the election call. Both the governing Saskatchewan Party and the opposition NDP will field a full slate of candidates in the province’s 58 constituencies.

Nokomis School whose numbers? As announced in late September, the Horizon School Division has again voted to put Nokomis School through the review process, the fourth such review since 2006, with the possible outcomes being class discontinuance, or complete school closure. Last Mountain Times has been attempting to get information directly from the School Division, however officials have not returned phone calls. Nokomis School Community Council member Michele Cruise-Pratchler provided Last Mountain Times with a copy of the Division’s school enrollment projections from 20112012 through to 2016-2017. The Division’s figures show a projected enrolment for the current school year of 49 students, when in fact, there are 55 students at the school this fall. As well, the Division’s projections show total enrolment

remaining flat and declining over the next five years, while the Council’s own projections indicate an increase of almost 20 students over that same period. One of the obvious discrepancies in the Division’s projections relate to early years (Grades 1 & 2) numbers. The Division is projecting only six students for the 2012-2013 Grade 1 class at Nokomis School. Cruise-Pratchler was asked to explain why the Division’s projection is so low, when it is common knowledge that there are 22 children enrolled in Playschool this fall, and at least half of those will go on to Grade 1 next year. “From what we can see, the School Board officials refuse to use the numbers relating to children who are not already enrolled in the education system. This, of course, works to their benefit and supports their agenda, Cruise-Pratchler said.

“We have provided them with the actual numbers based on all of our research into families having babies and families moving into the community, but they refuse to use these numbers.” “In addition, we are told that the School Division receives their projected future student

numbers from the public health system. These numbers are not particularly useful, in the view of the Nokomis School Community Council, as some families do not use the local public health nurse but rather go to the city; some families do not use the public health nurse services at all, and some families

are in a different public health region. So, if they insist on using the public health numbers, those numbers will always show that there are very few children in the community,” Cruise-Pratchler added. The Nokomis School Community Council is currently in the process to get organized

for the detailed work that goes into preparing their case for keeping the school open. Their process will include consultations with the community. The Council must present its case to the School Division by late January, 2012 and the Division Board will announce its decision or after February 1, 2012.

For many folks, the sight of bags of potatoes on the back of a truck will bring back two distinct memories: cool fall days just right for digging spuds; and sore backs from all the work! These two loads of potatoes may not carry the negative memories, as they were harvested on the Pratchler farm near Govan by the local Girl Guide and Brownie girls, along with the Guide Leaders and some parents.

  Harry Hine and Ilene Harding returned home to Nokomis on October 2 from a six day motorcoach tour to the Norsk Hostfest in Minot, North Dakota. While there, they also saw some of the ruins as a result of the flooding in the spring, and the stories they heard were both devastating and hard to believe. They were told that in the main hall (arena) where they sat, there had been six feet of water on the floor. The crowd was down a little this year, as some trips had to be cancelled due to lack of reservations (luckily Harry and Ilene’s hotel was on a hill). Homes and motels that housed people for the Hostfest were either gone or filled with flood victims. All in all, they had a great time. One lady on their bus won a 40� flat screen TV from a free draw and she didn’t even have to pay duty on it at the border.   On Thursday, October 6, Bob and Blandina Pilkey of Dafoe were in Nokomis. Lorna and Earle Mansell, Hazel Chute, Harry Hine and Ilene Harding helped Blandina celebrate her birthday.   Lea Munroe was visiting from Edmonton, spending a few days last week visiting with her Grandpa and Grandma, Alex and June Munroe. While Lea was here, she was a great help to her Grandma.   Art and Bette Ramshaw were in Moose Jaw last week visiting with friends Grace Dunbar and her son Chris and his wife Norma. Bette reported that the police are very friendly in Moose Jaw.

$510 raised at Terry Fox School Run Day in Nokomis   The Nokomis School annual Terry Fox School Run Day was held on Friday, September 30. This year their goal was to raise $500 and they surpassed that goal by raising $510!   The students enjoyed the barbecue lunch after an hour walk/run/bike, but the highlight of their afternoon was watching the five lucky high school and five elementary students, whose names were drawn from the bucket, throw pies at principal, Mr. Koenig!   Draws were made for a Terry Fox t-shirt, a pair of childsized school sweatpants and a pair of high school-sized school sweat pants!   Everyone had a great day and the school is very proud to have beaten their goal! They will be sending off $510 to the Terry Fox Foundation!

The students start off on their walk.

Nokomis Rec Centre land harvest (continued from front page)

Sydney’s In Real Life adventures – ‘Army Recruits’ Episode one was ‘Army Recruits’. The kids had NO idea what was coming (they never do). Sabrina (the host) and the ‘army drill sergeant’ showed up and made them do sit-ups and push-ups, in the mud. Sydney said they re-shot that segment 4-5 times, so they were really tired by the end! One of the funniest challenges of this episode was the ‘tent pitching’. Sydney and her partner’s folding shovel didn’t unfold, so Sydney dug a trench with her hands! They then had to heat and eat ‘army rations’. None of the kids took the time to read and understand the instructions, so no one actually heated their food. Sydney enthusiastically chugged a whole canteen of water (thinking they had to get rid of all their rations) but found out later it was meant to be used for heating the food. Their package ...Sydney and her partner’s was ‘beef bourguignon’ (others folding shovel didn’t unfold, had chicken or so Sydney dug a trench with shrimp). Both her hands... she and Brad ate it cold and with their hands (they had no utensils). Sydney’s hands were filthy because she had been digging trenches! Another competitor, Eman, mixed the food with the chemical that was meant to be used to create heat, to warm the food. Sydney said after the taping, the production crew was worried, and contacted the company that made the food to find out how dangerous that was, and they watched her all evening to see if she would get sick, and kept her near the toilet. One the chaperones that was with them at all times was a trained EMT. During the ‘Race to the Finish’, the answer to the Clue Card puzzle was ‘mess tents’. Sydney guessed ‘tent mess’ (because their tent was a mess!) and they would have been first if they had switched the words around. Then she overheard the team next to her, and got the right answer that way. They started running, and could have been first or second, but they ran the wrong way! They only realized they were going the wrong way when they noticed the teams following them had quit, turned around and gone another way. So they were 4th overall and survived to the next round. Chase Martin of Coronach and Louivannah of Montreal were eliminated, so Sydney is now the only Saskatchewan competitor. Next Episode – ‘Beekeepers’.

I organized a potato picking for my second leadership requirements for my Canada Cord at Martin and Bonnie Pratchler’s farm near Govan. Most of the girls from the Girl Guide unit, along with their leader attended. We were also lucky to have family members attend to help out. We worked from 10:00 a.m. until noon and took a break for lunch which was pizza, salad and drinks, plus we had ice cream treats as it was a hot day! We worked for one more hour after lunch. On October 3, the Pratchlers, along with my dad and I, took the first load of potatoes to the Regina Food Bank. Bonnie and Martin took a second load in on October 5, We donated about 3,000 pounds of potatoes to the Regina Food Bank! Rebecca Shewchuk Bryksa There are some people I would like to thank in helping me towards my badge. I would like to thank all the guiders and their parents for coming out to pick potatoes. I would also like to thank the Pratchler family for the idea, for the potatoes and equipment, and for helping haul them to the Food Bank in Regina. Rebecca Shewchuk Bryksa 46p

Loiselle - Janovsky concert The Strasbourg area was truly entertained on Saturday, October 1 when the duo of pianist Martin Janovsky and singer Henri Loiselle performed at Strasbourg Memorial Hall. Two performances were held, an afternoon and dessert theatre; and an evening which started with an elegant meal followed by the performance. The concerts were organized by the Strasbourg Recreation Centre, Strasbourg Museum and Last Mountain Theatre Company. The Saskatoon pair have been performing together for many years. Janovsky, an amazing pianist, dazzled the audience as his fingers danced across the keys. His unique humour had the audiences reeling in laughter. Loiselle, also known as the ‘Singing Farmer,’ has an amazing voice that reaches deep into your soul. Audiences left the performances in awe of what they just experienced in small town Saskatchewan. It is hoped this pair will return again to entertain another appreciative audience! As Loiselle remarked, “This audience gets it, they really get it!”

Break ins The Melville RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance locating the persons responsible for a series of break and enters in the Melville and Ituna area. Sometime between mid August to early September a residence on the 200 block of 2nd Ave West in Melville, Saskatchewan was broken into. Approximately $800 worth of laminate flooring was stolen, along with some food items. On September 25, a residence located in the southern part of Ituna was broken into early in the evening. The suspect was seen by one of the residents and fled on foot. Police were unable to locate the suspect after an extensive search. And, sometime between 10 p.m. on October 2 and 6 a.m. on October 3, the Saskatchewan Crop Insurance building in Melville was broken into. The suspects vandalized the interior of the building which is currently undergoing renovations. At this time the RCMP do not believe the break ins are related. Missing person On Tuesday, October 4 at approximately 8:00 a.m., Nipawin RCMP received a report of an abandoned vehicle at Carol’s Cove Campground near Tobin Lake, about 40 kms NW of Nipawin. Investigation revealed that the vehicle a green 1998 Chrysler Intrepid was first observed parked at the campground around Sunday morning September 25. Police were able to determine that the registered owner of the vehicle is a 67 year old male from Zenon Park, Saskatchewan. Checks with the family and friends confirmed that this person has not been seen for the past few days to at least a week. During the early morning hours of Wednesday October 5, Nipawin RCMP Members, RCMP police dog

services, as well as the ‘F’ Division Search and Rescue team began a search of the area where the car was located. The missing person is Michel Guy Favreau. He is approximately 5’ 9” tall, weighing 170 lbs. He has short brownish, grey hair and blue eyes and wears glasses. If you have information in regards to the whereabouts of Mr. Favreau , please contact the Nipawin RCMP at 306-862-6270. Traffic fatality During the early evening hours of Wednesday, October 5 Smeaton and Nipawin RCMP responded to a collision between semi-tractor and a pick up truck on Hwy 55 approximately 8 km south of Meath Park, Sask. Emergency crews arrived on scene to discover that the pick up was in the ditch on its side and was in flames. Once the fire was extinguished a body was discovered inside the truck. The identity of the victom is unknown at this time and still under investigation. The driver of the semi was taken to the Prince Albert with minor injuries. Memorial service Saskatoon RCMP hosted a memorial service and plaque dedication honouring Insp. Lorne James Sampson, Cst. Thomas Brian King and Cst.

The buying or selling of a house is one of the most important transactions of our lives. Entrusting this transaction to a professional who knows the market will enable you to experience this big step worry-free. If you missed the early summer peak, a real estate agent can help you find or sell a house before winter. Real estate agents see to all the details, from managing viewings to signing contracts. They can give extensive visibility to properties being sold, and they can help prospective home buyers find the house they are looking for. Agents guide their clients and keep them informed on all important aspects of the sale or purchase of a home, including the type of property desired, the characteristics of the area, and

the proximity of services. Real estate agents also make sure that everybody follows the rules. They are informed about comparable house prices and trends in neighbourhoods as well as in the market at large. Regulated by a professional code, they know how to obtain a fair price while respecting the conditions of the vendor. If prospective buyers or sellers would like to know more about the environmental considerations involving a property, real estate agents are equipped to help their clients find out more. If, for example, you are selling and want to know whether you should have the radon levels in your house checked before putting it on the market, your agent will be able to suggest the resources you need to get it done.

New admissions policy for Alberta students A new policy at the University of Saskatchewan puts Alberta students on a level playing field with their Canadian counterparts when applying for undergraduate admission. Final high-school marks used to apply to post-secondary institutions are calculated differently for students who follow the Alberta curriculum (including those living in Northwest Territories and Nunavut) compared to students in the rest of Canada. For Alberta curriculum students, 50 per cent of their final marks consist of mandatory diploma exam test scores, while the final grades of students in other parts of the country are from marks accumulated over their entire senior year. “Admitting some students based largely on one test score and others based on an entire year’s worth of marks doesn’t make sense to us,” said Dan Seneker, manager of undergraduate recruitment at the U of S. “We believe the future of Alberta students should not rest on a single test result.” The U of S’s new policy will admit Alberta curriculum students based on their in-class marks or their diploma marks, or a blend of the two – whichever mark is higher. The modified admissions policy goes into effect in the fall of 2012.

It’s time to plant... Garlic Garlic (Allium sativum) is a member of the onion family and is related to regular cooking onions, chives, shallots and scallions. Native to central Asia, it has been cultivated and been a part of Asian, African and European cuisine for thousands of years. In addition, garlic has been used medicinally with several health claims including lowering cholesterol levels and high blood pressure; treating the common cold; and reducing the

Hard-neck garlic risk of some forms of cancer. That aside, it is an essential ingredient in stews, savoury sauces, chili, dips, pickles and many other familiar dishes. There are two types of garlic: soft-neck and hard-neck. The difference between them is whether they send up a scape (stalk = hard-neck) or not (softneck). A number of sources suggest that the hard-neck type is hardier and therefore recommended for growing northern climates like ours. On the other hand, the University of Saskatchewan vegetable researchers regularly test many vegetable

cultivars including garlic. They have found that there are hardy cultivars of both types. Some of the hard-neck cultivars that performed well in the U of SK trials include ‘Atkin Russian’, ‘Czech’ and ‘Music’. ‘FL F4’ and ‘Vesey’ are soft-neck types that have also performed well. (More details on the U of SK vegetable cultivar trial results and seed company addresses can be found at http://www. vegetable/publication/index.htm.) You can also try growing garlic purchased from your grocery store but the majority of that has been grown in California and may not be adapted to our climate. A better local source is going to your farmer’s market. Buy some for eating now and some for planting. Growing it yourself couldn’t be easier. Like lilies, tulips and daffodils, garlic is best planted in the fall, ideally four to six weeks before the ground freezes. However, garlic can also be planted in the spring as soon as you can work the soil; it just may not produce as well. Well-drained soils amended with organic matter is best, but garlic will grow in a variety of soil types and pH. Try to avoid heavy clay and low-lying areas. Prepare your planting bed by amending the soil with compost or well-rotted manure and rototill in well. To prepare your garlic for planting, separate bulbs into individual cloves and select the largest for planting. Take care not to bruise the cloves as you break the bulb apart and keep the skin covering each

clove intact. Into your prepared soil, plant the cloves pointy-side up about 5 cm (2 in.) deep and 10 – 12 cm (4 - 5 in.) apart. Cover with soil; an additional 2 – 5 cm (1 – 2 in.) layer of organic mulch will help insulate the cloves over winter and supply them with additional nutrients in the spring. During the growing season, maintain even moisture, never allowing the soil to dry out completely. Your garlic will put down

roots this fall ready from spring growth. Leaves appear in early spring followed by bulb-development. Hard-neck garlic will send up stalks or scapes. These should be cut off just above the leaves to ensure all energy is sent into the bulb. The time do this is when they are just beginning to form and are still curled. The scapes are edible and can be sautéd in place of garlic cloves in your cooking, used in salads or elsewhere you want a mild


garlic flavour. Garlic is ready to harvest in late summer when about 1/2 to 3/4 of the leaves have yellowed. If left in the ground too long, the cloves will burst through the bulb wrapper (papery skin), reducing storage life when they are eventually harvested. Carefully dig up the bulbs and allow them to cure by lying them flat on a rack or hanging in bunches in a well-ventilated area out of direct sun. Do not remove any

Melfort to host 2012 Saskatchewan Senior Championships Golf Saskatchewan has announced that the Melfort Golf & Country Club will host the 2012 Saskatchewan Senior Men’s and Women’s Championships next July 24 to July 26, featuring the top senior amateur golfers in the province. “We are very excited to host the 2012 Saskatchewan Senior Men’s and Women’s Championships that brings in the top

senior men and ladies in the province,” said Melfort Golf & Country Club General Manager Kevin Ryhorchuk. “It has been a few years since we have hosted a Golf Saskatchewan provincial event and we are looking forward to showcasing our course and to put on an event that the golfers will remember and enjoy. To have the 2011 Senior Women’s champion Judy

Sefton from your home club defend her title on her home course will be very exciting for her and the rest of Melfort and area.” “We look forward to returning to Melfort and promoting that great course and city,” said Golf Saskatchewan Manager of Tournaments and Player Services Dan Ukrainetz. “Many of our competitors know the

course and the challenges it will bring from the many tournaments it has hosted. We feel this is the perfect time to return to the North-East with our senior’s event.” This will mark the fourth time the Melfort Golf & Country Club will host the Senior Women’s Tournament and the third time the course will host the Senior Men’s Tournament.

from the sidelines Rivera’s ‘cutter’ a saviour for Yankees Forty-year-olds playing major professional sports have almost always been hangers-on, once-great players merely playing out the string. Let’s cut to the chase and meet the exception – Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees. Rivera, a Panamanian, will be 42 years old this November and he is still Major League Baseball’s best, most reliable, and certainly most amazing – considering his age – relief pitcher. This year, the ace closer saved 44 games for the Yanks, the fourth-best total of his career. Let’s also cut to the chase and zero in on why Rivera has defied every age-related athletic assumption and continued to mow down hitters and save victories for the Yankees, who are chasing yet another World Series title: The baffling ‘cutter.’ Rivera’s ‘cutter’ – a cut fastball – is the only pitch he throws. Normally, a one-pitch pitcher has about as much job security as a hockey player who goes over on his ankles, but that cutter is so dominating, so infuriatingly hard to hit that Rivera has racked up 603 saves since 1996 – the most in baseball history. says that the break on Rivera’s pitch is “so late, the batter must commit to swing before he knows where it’s going. That late break is a product of maximum rotation and just the right finger pres-

sure on the ball.” Rivera throws with such ease of motion that his right arm seems like it could throw 95 MPH cutters for another 10 years. When he finally decides to retire, he will have established a saves’ record that will stand forever. Perhaps his longevity is due to his late start in baseball. Rivera was almost out of his teens before a scout noticed him – and even then, he was a shortstop who pitched in an emergency one day when the regular starter didn’t show up. He underwent elbow surgery at the age of 23 and the Yankees thought so little of him, they didn’t even protect him when Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies held drafts to stock their expansion teams. But something clicked for Rivera in 1995. He discovered his cutter. He’s been dominating hitters ever since. And will he be a first-year inductee in the Hall of Fame? Automatic, just like that reliable cutter. • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “Of all the soccer teams to be fined because fans threw cups of excrement, why did it have to be Cologne? • Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel recalls a couple of his favourite quotes from legendary Clemson coach Frank Howard: “I retired for health reasons.

Cleaning soil off the bulbs is easy after drying is complete and should only require gently rubbing. If grown in heavier soils, washing may be required. Store your garlic in a cool dark area.

prizes and live auction items. We anticipate a very successful evening.   Saturday evening, October 1, the Silton Fire Department received a call at approximately 10:00 p.m. We heard a couple of bangs, like the sound of fireworks, and within minutes, the hillside above Rockridge Development was a blaze. We were very fortunate there was no wind that evening and hundreds of volunteers came to lend a hand. This area is next to impossible to get a truck into, as it is coulee, bush, railway track and fenced. The fire department and volunteers fought the blaze for well over three hours and there were people on patrol all night. A ‘Fire Ban’ prohibiting the use of recreational fires, open air fires and fire works has been issued by Fire Chief, Steve Wallace and The Resort Village of Kannata Valley. We trust the RM of Longlaketon will follow suit and issue fire bans for Valley Ridge Acres and High Country Estates, the two new housing areas directly above us. This year, with absolutely no rain, things are very dry so please do not toss out cigarette butts, put the fireworks away for another year, and do not light fires as the conditions are perfect for a disaster if a fire starts. ‘THINK’ before you light! Keep our village and surrounding areas safe.   Tuesday, October 4, Bill

and Bonnie Lax, long time residents of Kannata Valley, anxiously awaited the arrival of their new home. The house arrived from Lethbridge, AB at approximately 10:00 a.m. and the Lift-All crane arrived shortly afterwards from Moose Jaw. It was very exciting as many of the residents watched the crane operator lift the house from the flatbed, turn it completely around and manoeuvre it around trees and set it into position on the foundation. Everything went smoothly and Bill and Bonnie are so pleased to have their home in place before snowfall.   Saturday, October 1, approximately a dozen or more seniors gathered at the Silton Community Centre to have coffee and cookies to celebrate Seniors’ Week. While enjoying our coffee and chatting, Elaine Ritter read: Special Poem for Older Folks A row of bottles on my shelf Caused me to analyze myself. One yellow pill I have to pop Goes to my heart so it won’t   stop. A little white one that I take Goes to my hands so they won’t   shake.

  On a sunny Sunday afternoon, September 18, approximately 30 ladies gathered at the Silton Community Centre to honor bride-elect Kathy Retzer. Seated at the head table was Kathy, her mother Dorothy, the groom’s mother Janice Stevens, groom’s sister Michelle, and maid of honor Kathleen Hamilton. The room was decorated with old coal oil lanterns, gallon jugs with brown tops and handles, a cast iron tea kettle and a cream can. After a couple of contests, sister-in-law Pam Retzer presented the gifts for the bride to open. Kathy capably thanked the hostesses for the shower, the ladies for coming and for all the gifts she received. A tasty lunch was served by hostesses Fire in the hills above Rockridge Development.

With a strong increase of students this academic year, the University of Regina student enrolment now totals more than 12,200, an increase of 11 per cent over the year before.

Preliminary numbers show a significant increase in the number of students who have registered this fall at both the University of Regina and University of Saskatchewan. The numbers indicate enrolment is up partly because of increases in the number of aboriginal and international students.

we don’t like something, we grumble, murmur and complain. In a way, grumbling feels good: we want people to know that we are NOT happy about something, that something is unacceptable to us. Actor and comedienne Lily Tomlin said it this way: “man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain.” And then there’s this Bible verse: “Do everything without complaining or arguing” (Philippians 2:14). OK, I can see doing some things without complaining and arguing – but everything? Ouch. Why such a high standard? Maybe because grumbling and complaining are shortsighted. When I was a campground manager in Alberta, we employed a night security man to help make sure the quiet hours were respected. Despite his efforts, campers would still come in with noise complaints. In the pressure of the busy season, it was easy to grumble against our security man and think unkind thoughts of him. But then when he left the area and we were without a security man for awhile, we had to do the night patrols ourselves every night. Soon we were deeply missing our security man. Complaining is that way – it is shortsighted, operating only on the unpleasant aspects of the present moment. But we need to remember that any situation can potentially get worse, and then our complaints will seem rather silly and trivial. Maybe the Bible contains such a high standard because grumbling is reflective of any number of beliefs we hold – beliefs that

don’t measure up to what the rest of the Bible pictures. For example, complaining might mean we have inwardly concluded that “no one cares about me” or “I’m frustrated because I can’t do what is needed” or “my life is out of my control”. But none of these things are true according to the Bible. The Bible presents the understanding that we are cared for deeply by God, that he will give us strength for any situation if we just ask him, and that he reigns over the events of life; it is not out of control. Maybe the Bible contains such a high standard because long-term, habitual grumbling against someone or something paralyzes our ability to be helpful toward that someone or something. Another actress, Marlene Dietrich, is said to have commented: “Grumbling is the death of love.” Maybe the Bible contains such a high standard because grumbling and complaining are not at all part of the nature of God. If we fill our lives with grumbling and complaining, we are not able to experience God in a meaningful way, because there is no complaining in God. Oh, to be sure: there is a place for constructive criticism, and for holding others accountable for their actions and responsibilities. There is a place for calling attention to what isn’t working and needs to be fixed. But is there any place for mere grumbling and complaining, especially if what the Bible says about God is true?

The Saskatoon Health Region has announced that its annual influenza virus immunization program begins on Tuesday, October 11 in cities and towns throughout the Region. Additional venues have been added this year, based on feedback from last year. “Last year, the majority of influenza cases were in young children and older adults,” says Karen Grauer, Manager of Disease Control for Public Health Services. “People who have chronic health conditions or compromised immune systems are also at risk and need to be

protected. It’s also important for their families to be immunized so the protection spreads, not the disease.” The 2011 influenza vaccine is again offered free of charge to all residents. The vaccine includes protection against the main types of influenza circulating this year. The immunization program, is targeted to individuals who are considered to be at high risk, including people 65 years of age or older; pregnant women; children 6 months to 23 months of age; people who are severely obese; people of any age who are residents of nursing

homes and other chronic care facilities; anyone with chronic health conditions; and healthcare workers. “Anyone who is in close contact with those at risk individuals or people who cannot be immunized, such as infants under age six months, should also get immunized to stop the spread of influenza. We want to make sure everyone knows the importance of being immunized each year against influenza,” says Grauer. “The vaccine works for about six months but it needs to be administered every year to provide ongoing protection.”

AGRICULTURE pa ge Clubroot disease confirmed in Saskatchewan   Clubroot has been confirmed in two Saskatchewan canola fields, Brett Halstead of Nokomis, Chair of SaskCanola announced last week.

Brett Halstead   SaskCanola was advised by industry and government personnel on September 30, 2011 that plants from two fields in the north central part of the province showed the clubroot

disease.   “As the grower organization, we want to ensure that all canola growers are made aware of the situation immediately. Collectively farmers will need to be more vigilant as to their farming practices this fall and coming spring in order to prevent further spreading of this disease,” Halstead stated.   “The confirmation of clubroot in Saskatchewan, although extremely unfortunate, is predictable given the nature of the disease and its eastward movement,” Halstead said. SaskCanola has understood this possibility for some time and invested close to 1M dollars in levy funding on research programs

that have focused on clubroot prevention and management including the purchase of new detection equipment for the provincial lab.   In 2009, the Ministry of Agriculture along with SaskCanola, industry and agriculture organizations, established the Saskatchewan Clubroot Initiative (SCI). Through this initiative, a provincial Clubroot Management Plan was developed by SCI to promote awareness and identify priorities for clubroot prevention and management.   Clubroot management and prevention includes proper crop rotation, scouting susceptible crops regularly, and good sanitation practices for farm equipment.

Failure to plan for future   Allen Oberg, chair of the Canadian Wheat Board’s farmercontrolled board of directors, is critical of the report of the federal government’s working group on the transition to an open market, saying it represents a failure to plan for the future.   “The farmers of Western Canada expect and deserve serious analysis and planning from

a government that is dismantling the most powerful farmers’ marketing agency in the world. There is no plan or vision. Instead, with billions of dollars at stake and the clock ticking, this report simply tells us to hope for the best from the open market,” Oberg said. “The working group has not offered farmers concrete solutions to the inevitable marketing and logistical problems created by the Harper government’s rush to deregulation. While the report acknowledges there will be challenges, it suggests that open-market forces

will sort everything out.”   “Farmers are now being asked to accept at face-value that their marketing interests will be served and protected by a handful of American and European multinationals that control the global grain trade,” Oberg added. “This is unconscionable. The federal government is abdicating its responsibility to farmers while trying to blame the CWB itself for its own demise. This is occurring despite farmers’ vote, in the recent plebiscite, to retain the benefits of the current system.”

WCWGA supports decision   The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association says it fully endorses the decision by the federal government to transfer administration for the advance payment program for wheat and barley to the Canadian Canola Growers Association.   “It makes sense to bring the cash advance program under one roof,” says Kevin Bender, President of the Wheat Growers. “It will result in a one-stop application process for most prairie farmers and eliminate the duplication we now see.”   “The move will relieve the Canadian Wheat Board from the responsibility of administering the cash advance program for wheat and barley by August 2012.This move will give the CWB the ability to focus all of its efforts on competing for our grain on the same day that western farmers gain an open market for wheat and barley,” says Bender. “It’s appropriate for the government to transfer this program to a non-profit, rather than leave it in the hands of what will then be a private business.”

Export opportunities for the canola industry   The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved a Canadian petition which will significantly expand opportunities for Canadian canola exports to the United States for biodiesel production – a market the Canadian canola industry estimates is worth up to $450 million a year.   The EPA’s approval of the petition will ensure that all approved Canadian biofuel and biofuel feedstock, including canola, meet the requirements of the US Renewable Fuels Standard Program (RFS2).   “This announcement provides a valuable opportunity for Canadian canola,” said Canola

Council of Canada president JoAnne Buth. “We look forward to increased canola exports for use in biodiesel production.”   The US RFS2, implemented in July 2010, set mandatory volume targets for four new categories of renewable fuels, as well as reduction criteria for greenhouse gas emissions. The program affected the ability for Canadian canola to be used competitively as a feedstock for producing biodiesel sold in the US. In January 2011, the Government of Canada submitted a petition to the EPA in support of Canadian compliance to these regulations.

Marshall steps down as APAS President   The Board of Directors of the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) last week accepted the resignation of Greg Marshall as President. Marshall, who served nearly three years in the elected position, stated health reasons for his decision to step down. He recently suffered a nearfatal heart attack at his home in Regina. Following emergency surgery, he is now at home under the care of his physician and family.   Marshall, who until recently farmed in the Semans area, became involved in APAS as a District

5 Rep in 2005. He was then elected to the Board of Directors in 2006. He served on the Executive Committee during 2008 and was elected as President in December 2008.   At the request of the Board of Directors, VicePresidents Don Connick and Arlynn Kurtz have agreed to jointly assume the duties of the President’s office until the annual Directors’ elections, which are scheduled to take place December 9, 2011 at the Association’s Annual General Meeting.

  Climate change is one of those issues which held media attention for a time, and while very little has been resolved regarding its impact, is now garnering less attention because public interest is fleeting on almost everything these days. As a result, media tends to act much like a bunch of hummingbirds, flittering from one story to another in order to try to hold public attention. In the case of climate change, the public has not just turned off interest in the situation, but has actually been left questioning the validity of the concern being shown.   The reasons the public have been left questioning the situation are varied. To begin with, climate change was initially heralded as global warming. In northern climates, the thought of warmer winters isn’t exactly one which sounds particularly threatening, and some very cold weather will soon leave people laughing at the idea of global warming.   The terminology had evolved to that of climate change, but by that time, public interest had waned. There is also the problem that climate change is not some-

thing anyone sees as an immediate threat. Generally, the experts are talking about the real impact beginning to manifest itself more toward the middle of the century.   Yes there are things happening now, a receding ice cap which could destroy polar bear populations, insect pressure in Canadian forests, and more severe weather, such as onein-a-century storms hitting the Canadian Prairies, but the real threat seems something much more distant.   In my own case, something that may hit in 2050, is a little bit more difficult to focus on since I will need to hit 90 to be there to see it. Yes there is concern for future generations, but the sharpness of the threat is still dulled.   In terms of climate change, there is also something of a feeling of helplessness for the individual. When you read about governments being reluctant to take the big steps necessary to affect the factors leading to climate change, the impact of an individual seems to be of little use. Until the world leaders in countries such as the United States, China, India and other major nations go after major greenhouse gas emitting industries, change will not happen at a

rate to change the trend. What we do on an individual basis, while important as a statement of concern through selfaction, it will not make up for coal generated electric plants spewing dangerous chemicals into the atmosphere.   Businesses won’t do it without a government push. The costs of reversing emissions is simply too high and will impact bottom lines too much to be carried out voluntarily by most.   The same can be said for most individuals too. We often do not make the wisest choices in terms of our environment unless pushed in that direction through tax rebates and forced environmental fees initiated by government.   Climate change is real, and until we all become more proactive, and that includes government, there is a feeling it is also inevitable, and that has the public often left trying to ignore the situation on some fanciful hope it will just go away, which of course it will not.

Crop Report THE WEEKLY

  Another week of warm harvest weather has allowed Saskatchewan producers to get most of the crop in the bin. Ninety-eight per cent of the 2011 crop is combined, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report. The five-year (2006-2010) provincial average for this time of year is 83 per cent combined.   The southeast and southwest have 97 per cent of the crop combined; the east-central, west-central and northeastern regions have 98 per cent combined; and the northwest has 96 per cent combined. Ninety-eight per cent of the durum, spring wheat and barley, 97 per cent of the canola and 78 per of the flax have been combined.   Across the province, topsoil moisture on

Crop & Livestock Solutions

cropland is rated as two per cent surplus, 50 per cent adequate, 40 per cent short and eight per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as one per cent surplus, 49 per cent adequate, 40 per cent short and 10 per cent very short.   In general, crop yields are reported to be average to above-average, with the exception of the areas in the south and southeast that received excess moisture in the spring. Crop quality is generally good. Ergot and frost damage have caused downgrading in some areas.   As harvesting winds up, farmers are also busy hauling bales, hauling grain, cleaning corrals and controlling weeds.

Dealing with heartache

by Gwen Randall-Young Sometimes when bad things happen to us, it is not only hard to cope, but we also cannot understand why this is happening. If there has been a death, the ending of a relationship, job loss or injury, part of what we are faced with is the recognition that our lives are not turning out exactly as we’d planned. This can be a devastating realization when our hopes and dreams have depended on certain fixed scenarios. It is a little like being a small child and finding that one year Santa simply didn’t show up. There is a sense of disillusionment, mixed with hurt, anger, sadness and even despair. Typically, people either blame something outside of themselves

(fate, God, the economy, the doctors etc.) or else they tend to feel victimized, wondering “Why me?” The feeling that they have been selected to suffer, or that there is some kind of intentionality working against them only adds to the pain. There are no little cosmic snipers up there just waiting to ruin our day! Nonetheless, devastating things still happen. So if we want to maintain our sanity, we must, like the Olympic figure skaters, learn how to get up after the fall, and complete the program with dignity. Not easy. But the reality is that very few of us will be blessed with a perfect program. This doesn’t mean that we should deny or suppress what we feel, for that is an important part of the healing. Instead, if we can recognize that each experience will bring learning and an opportunity for growth, and if we can remain open to looking for the gifts in each situation, then we don’t come away empty handed. Losses are real, and some

are bigger than others, but we must find a way to overcome setbacks and fly even higher than we otherwise would have. We saw skaters who missed an earlier jump throw in an unplanned triple near the end so they could make the best of the time they had left. No matter what has happened up until this point in our lives, we still have time to make good things happen. They may not be the things we had in our original program, but in life we are free to improvise and change direction at any time. The most influential factor in how well we will survive is our attitude. We will survive if we take from the past what is good, and transform it so that it becomes fuel for the future. This is the best insurance for a meaningful present. Gwen Randall-Young is an author and award-winning Psychotherapist based out of Alberta.

Home Plan of the Week

In Motion Community Pledge Challenge launched The In Motion Community Pledge Challenge was officially launched October 3 in Moose Jaw by Mayor Glenn Hagel. The challenge is offering Saskatchewan communities the chance to win $10,000 for a community project or initiative that increases the physical activity of our province’s children and youth. “Our community has always been a strong supporter of physical activity opportunities, especially for our kids and youth. I know we will work with Moose Jaw in motion and all residents to produce the best entry for our chance to win the $10,000 prize money.” Mayor Hagel said. “Raising public awareness about our kids’ physical inactivity is really what the in motion Community Pledge Challenge is all about,” said Cathie Kryzanowski, General Manager of Saskatchewan in motion. Less than 15 per cent of Saskatchewan kids get the minimum 60 minutes of physical activity they need every day and more is better. “We know that physically inactive kids will face long term health risks. Through this challenge, we’re giving families the opportunity to pledge to take action by rallying their community to get registered for a chance to win a significant amount of prize money that will help spark that initiative or project that gets kids moving more,” Kryzanowski added. Communities that register before October 30, 2011 will be eligible for an Early Bird Prize of $1,000 to help them promote the challenge locally. A panel of judges will choose the top five finalist communities based on the strength and creativity of their entries and the number of pledges they collect before December 30, 2011. The winning community of the $10,000 prize money will be chosen through an on-line public vote. An award of $500 toward an active vacation experience will also be given away to one lucky pledger. The in motion Community Pledge Challenge is designed to get communities working together to make a positive difference and make physical activity the easy choice for kids.

  Editor’s Note: the following letter was sent to Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, and copied to Last Mountain Times for publication. Dear Sir:   During the recent BHP takeover of PCS you were very vocal in your support of Canpotex, and single desk selling for potash to increase royalty revenues for the province of Saskatchewan. Single desks are used around the world to increase revenues on everything from New Zealand kiwi fruit to

our own Saskatchewan Government liquor stores.   In light of these facts, I am confused as to why your government is opposed to the single desk of the CWB for wheat and barley producers? Especially in light of the fact that, the total area of Saskatchewan is represented by CWB elected directors who support the single desk! And in addition the recent CWB plebiscite confirms the majority of producers wish to retain the single desk, which makes your party position difficult to understand!   I understand the Saskatch-

ewan Party Policy on the CWB and I have questions as to how it was developed. Your government has not put forward any economic reasons to implode the CWB and if there will be benefits to Saskatchewan’s farmers. If there are revenue decreases to farmers with the loss of the single desk, then I think your government has a responsibility to identify how this loss of income and control will be backfilled.   As an Elected CWB Director, I have been trying to meet with my local MLA Ken Krawetz since June 3,

Obituary Ernie Dyck 1946-2011

After a valiant fight with cancer, Ernie Dyck embraced his eternal peace on Wednesday, September 21, 2011. Surviving Ernie with great sorrow are: his wife, Carolyn (nee Moody); his children, Melissa Harder (Don), Melody Peters (Ray) and Marianne Scruggs (Mark); his step-daughters, Jessica and Mikaela Cheng; and sisters, Marina Lepp (Henry), Alma Zieger (Lee) and Grace MacDougall (Doug). Ernie was predeceased by: his parents, Isaac and Annie Dyck; son, Michael Dyck; and sisters, Anita Agnew and Rita HviidNielsen. Ernie’s passion was people, and that passion was lived out in 21 years of service as a beloved pastor mentoring the congregations of Hillsdale Baptist Church in Regina, Calvary Church in Toronto and Crossroads Community Church in Calgary. Ernie was also Canadian Director of World Team Missions, and finished out his passion for helping people as an Accredited Mortgage Professional with Dominion Lending Centres. Cremation has already taken place. Ernie’s Celebration of Life service will be held on Thursday, October 13, 2011 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at The Meeting House, 2700 Bristol Circle, Oakville, Ontario.
