Air Canada strike averted

There isn’t anything much prettier in the eye of a motorist than a newly-paved section of highway, freshly painted with crisp white and yellow lines. And, what’s even more pleasing to residents of the area east of Last Mountain Lake, is that this particular section of smooth pavement is one of the many sections of Highway 20 between north of Strasbourg and south of Nokomis that were repaired late this summer. After enduring several months of absolutely atrocious travelling conditions on this section of Highway 20, due to potholes and frost blow-outs, local area residents breathed a sigh of relief when the long-overdue paving contractor showed up to -Photo LMT Staff work on the roadway. Now that the work on #20 has been completed, it’s a pure joy to travel on the highway.

The union representing Air Canada’s 6,800 flight attendants was calling for demonstrations late last week, after the Harper government temporarily suspended the union’s right to strike. The government used an obscure procedural step by referring the dispute to the Canada Industrial Relations Board. The government is asking the Board to determine if flight attendants provide essential services, and to consider whether it should impose a settlement or send the dispute to binding arbitration. Flight attendants were due to strike last Thursday morning, after they rejected a deal that union negotiators had asked to them to ratify. The union planned demonstrations Montreal Airport and at federal Labour Minister Raitt’s constituency office in Milton, Ont., in response to the controversial move to quash the flight attendants’ strike. Air Canada said it was “business as usual” for the airline, as flights were taking off as scheduled. The push to keep the flight attendants from striking is the latest dispute in which Ottawa has intervened in a labour dispute in recent months. Other examples include the recent Canada Post strike, and the prior customer service job action at Air Canada.

Principal’s Message The school year is now well underway. Summer vacation seems like a million years ago. Staff and students have settled in and things are moving along rather quickly. With any luck, the weather will remain nice allowing for a completion of harvest and whatever other outdoors projects you have on the go. Let’s keep up the good work. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Kelly Decker to our school. Kelly is our new Kindergarten Educational Assistant. - Mr. Koenig Kindergarten, Grade 1, and 2 News Well, here it is – newsletter time again already. It seems like I am always writing these notes because the months go so fast! I don’t think we could have asked for a nicer September to start the year out with! Now let’s hope the beautiful weather continues! We have been very busy in these two rooms. The Kindergartens started on September 19 and have been busy ever since. They are a great group of kids and have already caught on to most of the routine. They are looking at sorting in Math and have already begun to read some words and learn some sounds in Language Arts. The Grade 1 and 2’s have been equally as busy. They have already wrapped up a unit on Patterning and the Grade 1’s have moved on to Representing Numbers to 20 and the Grade 2’s are working on Representing Numbers to 100. Both grades have been busy learning new words in Sight Reading and practicing and learning more about the rules of the letters. In October, both grades are going to be focusing a lot on writing. We are also going to keep learning new sight words to increase both their spoken and written language. - Mrs. Hendry Grade 3, 4, and 5 The Grade 3 class completed their CAT testing. We now await the results. They did an awesome job of concentrating and focusing on their task. I’m proud of you all! The children were out and about in the community recently tidying up the streets. They did a great job of keeping their environment clean. Congratulations on your efforts. We are at the end of our first Math Unit on Patterning which means a unit exam. Our next Math Unit for Grade 3’s will focus on Numbers to 1000, Grade 4 – Whole Numbers, and Grade 5 – Whole Numbers. The focus in Science at the moment is parts of plants – particularly jobs of plant parts. We have an inquiry on the go as we continue to investigate concepts we are wondering about. Our Health focus is an inquiry about the Immune System. At present we are finding out about germs. - Mrs. Koenig Grade 6, 7, and 8 The Terry Fox Run was a great success! Way to go everyone. The Grade 7’s are working

on Operations on Decimals and then moving on to Geometry and Measurement. The Grade 8’s are working on Ratios, Rates, and Proportional Reasoning, and then will start Pythagorean Theory. In ELA, Grammar Bootcamp continues as well as the learning about different types of fiction. Classifying is the topic in Science. They have learned that when you cut an earthworm in half you will probably have a dead earthworm in two pieces, not two worms as previously thought! Actually, if a third or less of the posterior end of the earthworm gets cut-off, the worm may regenerate and live, but the tail will never grow a new head! In Social, we are continuing to learn about West and Central Africa. There will be a test in the middle of October. On October 11, we had a guest speaker in to talk about cyber bullying. Our class potluck was held October 13. - Mrs. Tait Greetings from Mrs. Stratton Here is a short update on what we have been working on lately… ELA A30 students are beginning the literature portion of unit 1, focusing on Canadian voices and perspectives. ELA 20 students are about half way through their recollections unit and will be beginning their novel study at the end of October: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. ELA A10 students are finished their novel study and will be reading literature that continue with their theme of this unit about the challenges of life. ELA 9 students are half way through their unit Indigenous and Norse Narratives and will be beginning their new unit All That I Am at the end of October. History 30 students are nearing the end of unit one and are currently learning about pre-confederation and the building of our great nation of Canada. Social 9 students are working through their Time unit and will be looking at Ancient Civilizations. Law 30 is nearing the end of their first unit Foundations of Canadian Law and will be starting their unit on Civil Law shortly. Communication Media 10 and 20 and students are finishing up their video game project

using the program called Kodu where they had to create their own video game program, next we will be working on a group video project. - Mrs. Stratton Education Week Education Week is October 17 to 21. The following activities are planned for the week: Author Visit for Kindergarten to Grade 5, Book Fairs, Sports Nutritionist for Grades 6-12, Open House, Lee and Sandy Paley Concert for Kindergarten to Grade 8, Jr. Drama Presentation in Watrous, Picture Day and an Author Visit for Grades 6-12. The Open House on Tuesday, October 18 is an informal come and go evening to enjoy some coffee, snacks, and conversation. Report Cards and Parent Teacher Interviews Term I report cards will be distributed in early November. Parent/Teacher Interviews will take place in November as well. News From The Library During Education Week there will be many exciting activities for the students. We hope to have several visits from Saskatchewan authors. We welcome you to join us at the Book Fair to encourage your child’s love of reading and look forward to seeing you there. - Mrs. Nicholson Senior Volleyball For the first time in many years, we have two Senior Volleyball teams. There is a Girls Team and a Boys Team. The season for both teams has started. SRC News Magazine Sales were a great success! We had great support! The Grade 6/7/8 class sold the most magazines and as a prize they will be receiving a Pizza Party. All together we sold 154 magazine subscriptions. Great job everyone! For the month of October there will be a few dress-up days. Thrift Store Day was on October 13 and Rider Pride Day is October 27. On Halloween your child is welcome to wear their costume to school in the afternoon. We will be having a Fashion Show that afternoon as well as carving pumpkins. We encourage everyone to dress up and earn points for their team. - Kelsey Halstead, SRC President

Nokomis Legion / Ducks Unlimited Fundraiser Banquet a success

Seniors birthday party

Nokomis Legion #290 held their 4th Annual Legion /Ducks Unlimited Fundraiser Banquet on October 7, 2011. The event was sold out with guests from Nokomis and many surrounding communities, as well as guests from as far away as Florida and Alaska. The evening began with cocktails and appetizers, followed by a roast beef supper. Throughout the evening there are raffles, games, silent and live auctions raising funds for both the Nokomis Legion and Ducks Unlimited. The highlight of live auction items was a Jorden Hendry Chicago Blackhawks jersey signed by all the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion team. The Nokomis Legion appreciates everyone who comes out to support them and create a fun evening. -Colleen McNichol

A birthday party was held on September 30 for Hazel Eddy (left) and Lylie Herman accompanied by Calvin Harding. The Nokomis Seniors held their monthly birthday party on September 30 with approximately 25 people in attendance. Mary and Friends from Semans entertained for about an hour and then Happy Birthday was sung. Everyone enjoyed birthday cake topped with ice cream and strawberries. Lylie Herman was the only one celebrating a birthday in

September, so was accompanied by Calvin Harding at the head table. Hazel Eddy has an August birthday, but was away on holidays, so they celebrated her birthday as well. While the hostesses were busy cleaning up, Mary and Friends entertained for awhile longer. An enjoyable afternoon came to a close. -article and photos submitted by Lylie Herman

Seniors monthly meeting

The monthly meeting of the Nokomis Seniors was held on September 27 at the Welcome Inn with five members present. Ruth Edwards was acting president. The meeting opened with O Canada with Lylie Herman on the piano, followed by a minute of Memorial Silence. The secretary read the minutes of the last meeting. The treasurer reported that with a grant and generous donation, the financial report was a very good one. Correspondence: A copy of the minutes from the convention in Saskatoon in June was received. A letter accompanying the Grant was received and also a letter explaining the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal. There was no old business to report on. Committee reports: One card was sent to Alex Munroe. We had two tables of Bridge and three tables at the 500 card party. New business: A motion was made that the generous donation received from Nancy Hards be put towards a new furnace for the Drop Inn Center. The dates were set for card parties, meeting and birthday party in October. Lylie Herman spoke to the club about the Directors meeting in Saskatoon that concerns all the clubs in Saskatchewan. The meeting was then adjourned and closed with God Save the Queen. Visiting and refreshments followed. -article submitted by Lylie Herman

Thanksgiving Day is every day. You, you, you and you – I am thankful for my community and surrounding area of great folks, hospitals, ambulances, doctors, nurses, etc., children, Maguire and others. Some strangers stop to say a kind word of encouragement when I hobble down the street with the walker. Vicky Friesen was first on the scene, she went to Laurie Bartel at the Happy Shopper to make the call and shortly the ambulance arrived. They scooped me up for a ride to the hospital. First responders Maureen Bartel, Ruth Gibney and Carolyn Willems were on the scene almost immediately. We celebrate Thanksgiving on a weekend when it really is a daily affair, agree? We should always be grateful and thankful no matter the circumstances. The Drake community services for seniors has resumed in the villa since last news report on August 24. On Thursday, October 6, Denise Bartel brought Peggy home from Waldheim where she lives and works. Then Paul Schroeder, Margaret’s son-in-law from Saskatoon came to get Peggy and Margaret to spend Thanksgiving with him, Jennifer and Leah and Joel. Trudy Bartel and her daughter Christine and husband Darcy Sheils as well as Joel’s friend Lisa joined them for an evening banquet Sunday. Paul brought

Peggy and Margaret back to Drake Monday. One weekend Margaret Ewert, Margaret Bartel, Katherine Funk and Anna Dyck made a trip to Rosthern, Dalmeny and the Yourth farm to visit Anne Braun in Dalmeny, Agnes Ewert in Rosthern hospital, Marie Regier, who treated everyone to supper and Marie Funk of Rosthern. The new phone books are out. The old ones can be left at the Happy Shopper for the children of Drake Elementary School to pick up. Dorothy Wolter picks up milk jugs and milk cartons. Please phone 363-2148 for pick up. Food bank items can be left at Drake North Star or the Happy Shopper for pick up. On Sunday, October 9, the family of Katherine (Henry) Funk celebrated Thanksgiving in the villa. Present were Chris and Vic Bergen from Drake, Mark and Melissa Bergen from Lloydminster, Doug and Malisa Thomas from Watrous, Quinton and Joanne Bartel from Drake and their family Dustin, James, Erica, Mitchell and of course Katherine. Get well wishes, thinking of, prayers to Helen Boese of Nokomis, Wally Penner (Lenora), George (Mary) Bergen, all nurses, doctors, caregivers and patients in all the lodges and hospitals. -Dorothy Wolter

I received the following new version of Footprints in an email some time ago. It’s good to revisit it once in a while to help us keep things in perspective. Our Creator is the breath within us. All we have comes as gifts from our Creator. We are all lumps of clay, given life from the Creator. He is standing quietly by each one of us, patiently waiting for our acceptance. In a world where all things are temporary, He holds out to us eternal life. “...just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men (Adam sinning brought condemnation to all), so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men (Jesus crucified). For just as through the disobedience of the one man (Adam) the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man (Jesus) the many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5: 18,19, NIV) FOOTPRINTS (a New Version) Imagine you and the Lord Jesus are walking down the road together. For much of the way, the Lord’s footprints go along steadily, consistently, rarely varying the pace. But your footprints are a

disorganized stream of zigzags, starts, stops, turnarounds, circles, departures and returns. For much of the way, it seems to go like this, but gradually your footprints come more in line with the Lord’s, soon paralleling His consistently. You and Jesus are walking as true friends! Suddenly, your footprints that once etched the sand next to Jesus’ are now walking precisely in His steps. Inside His larger footprints are your smaller ones. You and Jesus are becoming one. This goes on for many miles, but gradually you notice another change. The footprints inside the large footprints seem to grow larger. Eventually they disappear altogether. There is only one set of footprints. They have become one. This goes on for a long time, but suddenly the second set of footprints is back. This time it seems even worse! Zigzags all over the place. Stops! Starts! Gashes in the sand! A variable mess of prints! You are amazed and shocked. Your dream ends. How you pray: Lord, I understand the first scene with zigzags and fits. I was a new Christian; I was learning. But You walked on through the storm and helped me learn to walk with You.”

“That is correct.” “And when the smaller footprints were inside Yours, I was actually learning to walk in Your steps, following You very closely,” “Precisely.” So, Lord, was there a regression or something?” There was a pause as the Lord answers, with a smile in His voice. “You didn’t know? It was then that we danced!” “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven; A time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance.” Ecclesiastes 3: 1,4 Spread the Word and give thanks to the Lord for He is good!

when I drive home from the city. Thought that maybe I’d been leaving later than usual, so I checked my watch, but my watch said “You’re right on time Junior” so it can mean only one thing. Summer is over. The nice weather had perhaps lulled me into a sense of denial, but you can’t argue with Mother Nature. Can’t argue with Mother of My Children either, but I’ve tiptoed through that in a previous bit so we’ll just leave that one alone. Anyway, back to the topic at hand. So I figured I’d brace myself for a few months of squinting and trying not to get blinded by drivers who don’t quite realize that the brights on their vehicle are called that for a reason. They’re bright. Coming from the front and coming from behind. If I was king of the world, I’d make it alright for people to write instructions on how to use the dimmer switch on a piece of paper, wrap it around a bat and then go out and tap some heads. Might not teach anyone anything, but it would be satisfying. The really annoying ones are the drivers that come barrelling up behind you, then stay there. Even if they have dimmed their lights, it’s still annoying. Obviously they were going faster than you, but have now decided that they’ll slow down and follow you. First right behind you, then they drop back a bit, then speed up and get right behind you again, and so on. Never mind that you’re the only two vehicles for miles, so passing safely isn’t much of an issue. It’s irritating enough to have someone following you for miles in the first place, but you get the

added treat of having their lights shining into your eyes from all your mirrors. Sometimes I’ll amuse myself by adjusting my side mirrors so the light reflects back at them, but you never know if you’re getting the right angle of reflection. Then there’s the critters. Something about the dark of night in winter that brings them out. I don’t recall seeing one deer this summer. They never seem to be out in broad daylight when they’re easy to spot. No, they have to wander around in the dark, picking the exact moment that you’ve got your eyes half shut because the goofball coming at you hasn’t dimmed his lights, to cross the road. And now to make things even more interesting, I heard on the radio that there are more and more moose ambling down from the north. They’re being accused of not being particularly road smart. That could apply to quite a few drivers in the city as well. So now a guy has to keep vigil for something that’s about three times the size of a deer and not particularly bright. Add to that a penchant for being somewhat aggressive and a fella may have to put a bush guard on the Dodge. Although it would be kind of amusing to watch a big old bull moose that’s having an off day playing kick the can with a Smart car. Probably be even funnier during rutting season. Ah well. Only about four and a half months and it starts getting lighter. Roland Richter lives in Nokomis, SK. Disclaimer: the opinions expressed are those of the writer.

Throughout the weeks, various people have come out day or night, and pitched in to really spruce up the rink! It was a big job as various areas of the rink were targeted for some renovations. • the front and rear entrance and lobby floor, including entrance to the ice surface have been painted; • walls of the lobby have all been painted; • all benches inside the lobby were painted; • the bathrooms were torn apart, replacing some old walls, removing some of the old flooring, sinks and counter tops and replacing them with new ones, replaced all toilets, and then the urinals put back in place; • scrubbed all the walls in ice area (around the stands) to the two benches by the tractor room. • the exterior of the boards was painted white with yellow trim; • the main walkway of bleachers along the glass was washed and painted; • removed and cleaned the rubber matting leading to the ice surface from the dressing rooms and the lobby entrance, with some being replaced; • replaced matting on benches and put puck board on inside wall at bottom of benches; • scrubbed all dressing room walls and painted benches in these rooms; • two new nets purchased. Each October both the skating and curling rinks need their ice installed, so many people are also involved with this. Along with the many floods, lines have to be painted and

then more flooding. Any funds required to do these ‘shine’ improvements were paid for by Strasbourg Minor Hockey. Along with all the many volunteers from the large area the Strasbourg and District Recreation Centre serves, there was a crew of people who came out from Regina, many working at Brandt Industries with Scott Hubick. They included: Eisenhower and his wife Ashley and their boys John and Hamza, Ian

helping out in many ways. Still in the plans are replacement of all the counter tops and sinks in the dressing rooms. The cleanup and renovations at the Strasbourg and District Recreation Centre have greatly improved the facility due to the large group of people who gave countless hours or maybe even a few, to help out. Our hats off to you! -photos courtesy of Cheryl Vertefeuille

LAST MOUNTAIN TIMES 7

William Derby School WDS welcomes Nina Gueguen, an intern working in the Grade 5 classroom with Mr. Edwards. Also welcome to Tracy Edwards and Ray Knaus, the new caretakers for the elementary and Deena Slough as an Educational Assistant. It’s nice to have a new seating area in front of the school paid for from SLC and the Sports Fund fundraising. The school was fortunate to have Pastor Glen Lonie volunteer to paint the two outside brick walls of the IA lab. It looks great! Students from K-12 are working on SMART (Specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely) goals. Affinity Credit Union donated two SMART boards for the classrooms. It was a beautiful day for the WDS Terry Fox Walk/ Run on September 23 with donations totalling $6,111.35 for the Terry Fox Foundation. The families of the Arts Ed 9 students held a bake sale to raise money for a Globe Theatre field trip in December. The Visual Arts 10 students

Bulyea School celebrates Thanksgiving Ms. Lovequist organized her yearly Thanksgiving meal for the students and staff last week. The parents and staff cooked and then brought the food to the school – it’s so enjoyable to see how excited the kids get when they see all the food! And, it’s always nice to have a hot lunch, but this was

just the best – a full turkey dinner with all the trimmings, right down to the pumpkin pies. And of course, the pumpkin tarts that the Grade 1 and 2 class made for themselves. This year, Mrs. Laliberte led everyone in a prayer of thanks for bringing everyone together and also to give thanks for all

the yummy food that was prepared for the meal. The older kids are paired up with the younger ones and they don’t just help them get their food, but they also sit together, just like a real family would. -article and photos by Corri Gorrill

The kids are all gathered to say grace and start to eat.

Bulyea School Review This year’s Thanksgiving event was somewhat a little more special, and it’s wonderful that we are all able to come together and enjoy this time. With Bulyea School being under review, the stress being felt by the parents is bound to rub off onto the kids again. This can really make it hard for them to concentrate on their studies when they are worried that their school family might get pulled apart. It is way too much stress to put on little people who don’t understand how bureaucracy works. It is going to be a stressful year, so we have to have as much fun as we can now, just in case the unthinkable happens. -Corri Gorrill

CBC comments on controversy Kirstine Stewart, CBC’s Executive Vice-President of English Services, last week issued a statement concerning commentator Don Cherry’s remarks about hockey fighting “Recent comments made by Don Cherry on Hockey Night In Canada’s Coach’s Corner regarding headshots and fighting in professional hockey have been the subject of considerable debate. I wish to

clarify, in no uncertain terms, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s position on this issue,” Stewart said. “Don’s comments reflect his own personal opinion. While we support his right to voice that opinion, we do not share his position. Player safety is a top priority for CBC, and we support the initiatives of the NHL and others in keeping players safe on and off the ice.

Yesterday, I spoke personally with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. In that conversation, as in this statement, I reiterated our shared commitment to player safety at all levels of the game.” The three players that Cherry mentioned in his comments asked Cherry to apologize, and in the absence of a proper apology, the players say they may sue.

New coins mark Winnipeg Jets return After a 15-year absence, the NHL is returning to the City of Winnipeg and the Royal Canadian Mint will celebrate the occasion by producing two special commemorative coins: a 50 cent piece, and silver 20 dollar coin. The 50-cent coin was unveiled last week. “We are exceptionally honored that the Royal Canadian Mint was willing to pay tribute to the return of the Winnipeg Jets with a 50-cent commemorative coin and a $20 commemorative pure silver coin,” said Mark Chipman, Chair-

Deer Park Golf Course to host 2012 Amateur Men’s Championship Golf Saskatchewan has announced that the Deer Park Municipal Golf Course in Yorkton will host the 101st edition of the Saskatchewan Amateur Men’s Championship in 2012. The event will take place Tuesday, July 17th to Friday, July 20th and will

feature the top male amateur golfers in the province. “We are looking forward to the tournament returning once again to Yorkton next summer,” said Deer Park Municipal Golf Course Head Pro Allan Sauser. “With over 100 years to its history it is excit-

ing to host such a tournament at Deer Park.” This will be the second time the Deer Park Municipal Golf Course will host the Saskatchewan Amateur Men’s Championship. The course has hosted 24 Golf Saskatchewan events over the years.

Huskie team wins The Huskie United Soccer Academy Alumni soccer team from Saskatoon is bringing home the Senior Men’s National Championship Challenge Trophy for the first time in the 99 year history of the competition. After a week of tough qualifying in Brossard, Quebec the fi-

nal was played out against the British Columbia’s ICST Pegasus team, and with goals from Nathan Reis in the first half and Mike Collins from the penalty spot in the second half, the Alumni team came away with a 2 - 0 victory. Continued on page 18.

Kings poised for NHL crown It has been 44 years since the National Hockey League went Hollywood with its first expansion in 1967, but Los Angeles has yet to celebrate a Stanley Cup victory. That’s about to change. This is the Kings’ year. Coach Terry Murray and his Kings were poised for a great 2011-12 season with all-stars at every position, but a summertime trade that brought them Mike Richards from the Philadelphia Flyers was the cherry on top. L.A. had to give up prized prospect Brayden Schenn in that deal, along with secondline forward Wayne Simmonds, a 14-goal man last year, but Richards was one of two major oars that propelled the Flyers’ canoe last year. The other one, Jeff Carter, was also discarded, sent to the

Columbus Blue Jackets. Richards has scored 112 goals and 283 points in his last four seasons and joins an offensive unit in L.A. that 29 other coaches in the league would give their mint condition Bobby Orr rookie cards to have. He joins the likes of Anze Kopitar, Justin Williams, Dustin Brown and free agent signee Simon Gagne to give Murray an embarrassment of riches when it comes to powerplay options. Dustin Penner, a 20-plus-goal man on four occasions and still in his prime at 29, and 20-goal scorer Jarret Stoll will almost be afterthoughts on this juggernaut. Leading the defence are arguably two of the best five young defencemen in the game – Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson. Quick and Bernier, the goaltending Jonathans, give the Kings a solid one-two punch in the net.

“We feel we can compete for the Stanley Cup, and that’s what we’re preparing for,” defenceman Willie Mitchell told NBC Sports. “The big thing is when your general manager and the ownership goes out and makes the moves and spends the money that they did, it’s a vote of confidence in us as a group to say that they think we’re ready.” The Kings made the playoffs last year by a mere three points, but were only seven points out of second place in the Western Conference. This year they appear to be ready to make the leap to Stanley Cup contender, joining the likes of Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Washington, Boston, Detroit and San Jose. “We have a good team – on paper,” said Murray. “But we have to work at our system. If we do that, we have a shot at what we all play the game for – the Stanley

Puzzle carrots

Watershed Authority and CEP reach agreement The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority and Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP) Local 820 have ratified a new collective agreement. The new four year agreement will expire on December 31, 2013. The agreement is consistent with recent provincial collective agreements and provides employees with

a 7.5 per cent increase over four years as well as improvements to pension benefits. The agreement covers approximately 120 full time equivalent staff. “The work of managing Saskatchewan’s water supply is very important to our future,” Minister responsible for Saskatchewan Watershed Authority Dustin Duncan said. “I

am pleased that the CEP and Watershed Authority were able to reach an amicable collective agreement.” The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority leads management of the province’s water resources to ensure safe water sources and reliable water supplies for economic, environmental and social benefits for Saskatchewan people.

Catherine Pratchler of Govan (having had previous success getting pictures of odd carrots published in the paper) brought in these two fine examples of ‘puzzle carrots’ grown by Martin Pratchler. We washed them up, took pictures of them, and took them apart. However, try as we might, we could not get them back together. So, we ate them.

Saskatchewan is leading the country in economic growth, bringing with it new industry, resource development, jobs and a record increase in population of 50,000 since 2008. Arm River–Watrous has seen the benefit of a strong farm sector as well as new potash and business development. Let’s keep Saskatchewan moving forward!

RCMP report

Chores to do before winter arrives Before the snow and cold weather come, it’s a good idea to do some seasonal preparations around the home and yard. You might not feel like doing this kind of thing right now, but getting it done in the fall will be more agreeable for you than if you wait until December! Here are a few suggestions. If the cladding on balconies or steps becomes slippery in cold weather, install an outdoor carpet or non-skid strips. Empty basement window wells, or copings, of all debris that could cause drainage problems. Pay particular attention to doors and windows, ensuring that outside seals are in good condition and replacing any broken panes.

To ensure that exterior wall siding will withstand the winter and protect your home properly, check that it is still solidly fixed to the building and in a good state of repair. Repair any cracks in your asphalt driveway to avoid the occurrence of damaging water leaks. After cleaning, lubricating, and storing your lawn mower in a suitable place, don’t forget that all your other gardening tools deserve the same care, including grass trimmers and often-used tools. Disconnect, empty, and store garden hoses. Pipes and outside taps should be bled to avoid frost damage. Clean and inspect the roof before the cold weather makes

it difficult to climb on it. Remove debris and leaves from gutters, check the state of the chimney, if you have one, and have it swept if necessary. Install winter protection over plants and shrubs that need sheltering, but not too early, as it could incur the risk of burning. Install bird feeders to help your feathered friends survive the winter in your garden. Clean up the barbecue. For safety reasons, always leave the propane tank outside, summer and winter alike. Remove any products from the garden shed that could be affected by the cold, and store away garden furniture. And now that you’ve done all that, you can relax and enjoy the fall!

Home Plan of the Week

Craven women dies in accident On the morning of October 11, RCMP in Swift Current investigated a single vehicle roll-over on Highway #1 approximately 4 km west of the community of Rush Lake. The vehicle involved in the collision was an SUV that was traveling westbound with two occupants; the 18 year old female driver from Craven, and a 19 year old female from Regina. The 18 year old female driver was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced deceased at the scene. Bystanders who were on scene shortly after the ac-

cident pulled the unconscious 19 year old out of the vehicle before it was engulfed in flames. She was transported to the Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current for treatment of serious injuries. An RCMP Traffic Analyst attended to the scene to further investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident. Next of kin notification has been completed on the 18 year old victim, however the family has not consented to the release of her name at this time. __________________ On October 8, RCMP in Fort Qu’Appelle were on the scene of a fatal motor vehicle collision which occurred 3 km South of highway 210 on the B-Say-Tah road. The driver of the single vehicle involved in the collision, a 32 year old male, was pro-

nounced dead at the scene. A male passenger was transported to hospital with undetermined injuries. Traffic on the B-Say-Tah road near Fort Qu’Appelle was restricted to one lane of travel for several hours while the RCMP investigated the collision. __________________ Overnight on October 11, Wadena RCMP were advising motorists that travel between Wadena and Quill Lake was not recommended due to extremely diminished visibility on the highway. A mixture of fog and smoke from burning agricultural fields was creating an extreme hazard on the highway. RCMP officers on scene reported near zero visibility at times. The public was being urged not to travel West of Wadena on Highway #5 until conditions improved.

LAST MOUNTAIN TIMES 13

AGRICULTURE pa ge New ag processing facility Alliance Grain Traders has announced that they are planning to build a new $50 million multi-function facility in Regina, that will include product packaging, pulse processing, pasta production and a distribution centre. “This initiative is a positive step for pulses in Saskatchewan and will have many benefits to our industry,” says Dr. Kofi Agblor, Director of Research at Saskatchewan Pulse Growers (SPG).

“This new facility will result in more capacity for our pulses in the overall food processing industry, and provide more opportunity for value added production. It will also be instrumental in developing more pulse-based foods that can be sold and consumed in Canada.” “This announcement confirms our focus on the production of high quality pulse flours and food ingredients for Alliance Grain Traders’ global client base,” says Murad Al-Katib,

CEO of Alliance Grain Traders. “We see growing demand from food companies and consumers for food products that are high in protein, high in fibre and vitamin-rich. Pulses are a natural ingredient to satisfy this demand. Pulses are gluten-free, non-GMO and have a nutritional profile that is positive in all aspects. We are excited to take our processing and marketing operations in Canada to the next level to deliver value to our producer base and shareholders.”

Alliance Grain Traders Inc. is a publicly-traded Canadian company and one of the largest pasta and pulse processor exporters in the world, with more than $650 million in sales in more than 100 countries. They currently have 12 pulse processing facilities in Canada. Federal and provincial politicians, including Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Ag Minister Gerry Ritz, and Premier Brad Wall were on hand for the announcement.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR The following is a letter to the editor from a Danish farmer familiar with Canada as a result of his studies at the University of Saskatchewan. To the editor: I am a Canadian citizen, but have lived and farmed in Denmark for the last 30 years. I have seen firsthand the risk and uncertainty that arises when dealing with independent grain buyers. The farmers in Europe are subsidized, but this is totally independent of grain prices. Every year we have the choice of selling our grain on contract or biding our time and waiting until the price is right. Prices often fluctuate from day to day. Futures complicate and make markets more obscure and can cause panic on grain markets. Deals can be a ‘take it or leave it’ spot offer. We have seen these independent companies buckle under and leave producers in the lurch when the competition gets tough. Selling our grain at times can be likened to the luck of the draw. Agriculture is a very important, but vulnerable industry. If the marketing of this production comes solely into the hands of multinational companies (such as Viterra) it could have far reaching effects. Darin Barney, McGill University, states that the removal of the CWB could mean that the economic and social infrastructures of graindependent rural communities could atrophy beyond repair, and an entire way of life will have been legislated out of existence. The farming population in Denmark consisted of 200,000 fulltime operations in the1950’s and today it is a little over 10,000 operations. Many farmers see the end of the CWB as a new ‘freedom of choice’ marketing opportunity. Independent companies are primarily focused on profit and are answerable only to their stock holders. Larger farmers do have bargaining power, but not as much as they may think. We have experienced the differentiated pricing tactics these companies use when competing on the grain market. It is a constant struggle to keep abreast of market developments and changing prices. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. A recent US study on risk and grain marketing behaviour of large-scale farmers by Wesley

M. Nusser et al., Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy, concluded that farmers in Iowa are now using forward contracting and hedging to manage risk and there is a growing need for educational programs on the use of futures. It also states that farmers are likely to face increased price and income variability while US farm policy has decreased the emphasis on price supports and disaster assistance. Many companies in Denmark are not just grain buyers, but also market other products. These conflicting interests mean that farmers’ interests are secondary to the goals and pricing policy of the company. The CWB, on the other hand, has no vested interests. It aims to sell grain at the highest price and has the volume to enable it to have ‘clout’ in the market. None of the independent grain buyers can reach this level of volume and influence, unless they themselves become a monopoly. The CWB is an old player in this game. They have market knowledge and connections and can engage in market and product development. Most important, the farmers themselves have direct influence on whom they want running this institution. If they don’t like how their grain is being handled and marketed, they can change it! Case in point: there has been a

request for a Senate inquiry into the impact of Viterra’s ‘grain handling and storage monopoly’ on grain growers and the grain industry in Southern Australia. An article by Colin Bettles of FarmOnline National News Bureau, Parliament House, Canberra; is dotted with phrases such as lack of appropriate benchmark standards, particularly for the way grain is handled; impact on others in the farming sector; the need for codes of conduct to ensure we have consistent standards; discontent at grain sampling inconsistencies as well as cartel behaviour. The luxury of choice has a price and involves a great deal of risk. And, what of the consumer? Could there be a day when food industry prices are set

arbitrarily? It is a case of keeping agriculture a dynamic and viable industry. Nobody can do without food. It’s a sure thing. It just depends on marketing strategies and organizations that focus on the farmer’s interests. As I see it, the CWB would be an asset in tackling the obscurity of the world grain market and the risk involved when meeting it head on. At least western Canadian farmers would still have influence over the way their grain is marketed.

Grain bin advice

Farmers are being advised to monitor grain bins for heating. Canadian Wheat Board agronomist Mike Grenier says farmers can prevent grain heating by aerating their bins sooner rather than later. Drying should begin immediately and grain temperatures should be kept below 18 degrees C as soon as possible. “Higher moisture content will impact the amount of time that quality can be maintained. If moisture is above 13 per cent, grain will remain warm for a long time and risks fungal damage,” Grenier said. “Watch daytime and evening ambient temperatures, as compared to binned grain temperature, to determine optimal times to run aeration systems.” Grenier also recommends against leaving grain peaked in the bin because this area can be a high moisture zone, leading to further problems within the bin.

Crop Report THE WEEKLY

The final crop report for 2011 indicates that 99 per cent of the crop has been harvested. The five year average for this time of year is 90 per cent. The last few weeks of warm, dry weather have allowed Saskatchewan producers to get the crop in the bin a bit earlier in good quality. The Northwestern region has 97 per cent combined, while all other regions are reporting 99 per cent of the total crop in the bin. 89 per cent of the flax and 99 per cent of the canola has been combined. In general, crop yields are reported to be average or above average except in the south and southeast where excess moisture was received in the spring. Crop quality and grades are generally good: 85 per cent of the spring wheat, 77 per cent of the durum, 88 per cent of the lentils, 90 per cent of the peas, and 95 per cent of the canola is expected to fall within the top 2 grades.

CROP & LIVESTOCK SOLUTIONS

Across the province, topsoil moisture is rated at four per cent surplus, 62 per cent adequate and 29 per cent short, with five per cent very short. For hay and pastureland, topsoil moisture is rated at three per cent surplus, 61 per cent adequate, 29 per cent short, and seven per cent very short. Rain was recorded in many areas of the province last week. The number of acres in southeastern Saskatchewan seeded to winter wheat and fall rye has increased 74 per cent and 13 per cent respectively, relative to 2010 seedings. This is partly due to the low number of acres seeded last fall due to wet conditions, and the large number of unseeded acres in the spring of 2011. Cattle producers have more than adequate winter hay supplies, however there may be a shortage of winter straw supplies particularly in the southeast.

Ag Notes The other day, I attended a meeting with an agricultural theme, and is often the case, had some discussions on industry issues before the event actually started. It was at that point I mentioned that with some 22-years as a farm journalist, many of the issues have remained the same; the pros and cons of the Canadian Wheat Board, the need for value-added farm processing on the Prairies, and greater diversification on the farm. The fate of the Canadian Wheat Board seems to be sealed as the federal government has announced its intention to have the single-desk selling system gone by Aug, 1, 2012. When discussing the impact of a change like the dismantling of the CWB, it often had participants reflecting on whether the loss of the so- called Crow Rate, the subsidy farmers used to receive on rail shipping costs, follows. When the Crow went, it was supposed to create a massive growth in value-added processing because there would be a benefit in selling into a local market rather than shipping to an export position. There are certainly examples of successes and failures in terms of valueadded processing. There is a vibrant canola crushing sector on the Prairies and an equally strong oat processing sector. Both were likely made more viable when the Crow was eliminated. But the list of failed efforts is every bit as long. A plant at Kelvington to make snack foods from pea flower, a strawboard plant at Kamsack and flax fibre processor at Canora are three examples all within about a 100-kilometre circle that failed. You can add the alfalfa dehydrating sector to the list as well, and it was once a vibrant sector before the loss of the Crow. Perhaps on a larger scale the glaring failure has been the hog sector.

by Calvin Daniels The loss of the Crow was one of a long list of positives which made the hog sector seem like a natural for the Prairies, and in particular Saskatchewan. The reality has been barns in financial red ink, the loss of processing facilities, and an industry that has gone from Cinderella to scullery maid. And with both the successes and failures, farmers are still having to export massive amounts of grains and that means relying on elevators and rail. However those elevators have rationalized, as have the railways, and the result is farmers are hauling grain farther on roads. The cost in road construction and maintenance that the rationalizations have caused is one of those things which would be difficult to peg, but they are obviously significant. As elevators and rail lines have disappeared, and farm trucks hit the roads for ever longer hauls, small towns have continued to die as well. Not all the rationalization or the failures are because of the Crow change, nor are the successes solely because of that either. But the truth is the costs and benefits that have resulted from the Crow are not crystal clear, or easy to quantify. That is going to be the same with whatever comes after August 1, 2012 in terms of grain marketing. The issue of valueadded processing will continue, as it remains good in theory, if not often enough in reality. And the CWB may disappear in 10 months, but the discussion will continue as time passes allowing for history to finally determine if the change was brilliant or folly.

When the Burger Barn take-out restaurant reopened this past July 18, the new owners were pleasantly surprised at how many of its former customers came back, and how many new customers the business is attracting. Verna Lynn Gorrill is no stranger to the food service business. Having run Doug’s Drive-In in Strasbourg for a few years, the business just got under her skin and she developed a passion for it. So, when the builders and previous owners of the Burger Barn decided to move on and sell, Verna Lynn and partner James Schulz jumped at the chance to re-open the business. “When we opened in July, our customers were pretty excited that the place had re-opened,â€? Gorrill said. “People kept saying they were really glad that someone bought it and opened it again. We added a few things to, and took a few things off, the old menu – but our biggest seller is our burgers, and we are slowly moving into a bigger pizza selection for the winter. With our new in-town delivery service, we’re hopeful that customers will keep us busy through the winter.â€? The Burger Barn’s summer menu was limited to burgers, one brand of hard ice cream, and the usual milkshakes, smoothies, soft drinks and coffee, but the limited selection didn’t keep customers away. “The ďŹ rst two or three weeks after we opened, I was really surprised at the amount of business

“

�

we attracted. It was a lot busier than we thought it would be,� Gorrill said. “We have been able to attract customers from all over the area. There will often be a line-up at the window, and I’ll only know one or two people. We get a lot of business from people travelling by on the highway.� Verna Lynn, aside from owning and operating the Burger Barn, is a full time teacher with more than ten years teaching experience. She is nowhere near retirement, but plans to keep working both jobs “as long as she can stand up!� “I’ve normally had two or three jobs on the go, so this isn’t anything new,� Verna Lynn explained. She said she is fortunate to have family and family friends available to work at the Barn, as well as some mature, experienced ladies who work can regular hours in the summer season. With four other restaurants in Strasbourg, Verna Lynn says she is not concerned about the competition. “Having the Burger Barn back in the mix just gives people more choices, even though there are some people who have their favourite place and don’t like to spread their business around. Although other places also sell burgers and pizza, we try to stay away from what Diger’s offers, just because we’re so close. The downtown shops are sit-down restaurants, whereas we’re a ‘grab and go’ kind of place, so that has some advantages for us,� Gorrill added. -LMT staff

Local boy opens plumbing shop Gary Edwards hasn’t wandered too far from home in his working life, and now has his own plumbing and heating business, Edwards Mechanical, operating out of the old Nokomis Times building on main street in Nokomis. Youngest son of Ken and Ruth Edwards of Nokomis, Gary got started in the plumbing and heating ďŹ eld right out of high school. He

took part in a work experience program as he was ďŹ nishing school, and then the company hired him on full time after he completed school. He got his initial experience and training with Comfort Mechanical in Regina, then came back to the rural area for six more years of experience, before heading back into the city.

Another nine years gave him the experience and conďŹ dence he needed to strike out on his own and open up shop in Nokomis about 6 months ago. “It wasn’t a huge leap starting out on my own. I was pretty comfortable with it because there aren’t very many other competing businesses here locally, and I knew the work would come in,â€? Edwards said. “Being qualiďŹ ed and experienced in plumbing, heating, sheet metal work, and gas ďŹ tting, I ďŹ nd there aren’t very many jobs I can’t handle – all the way from cleaning clogged drains to installing energy-efďŹ cient furnaces in new homes.â€? MECHANICAL

Having worked in the ďŹ eld for more than 15 years, Edwards has seen many changes in the plumbing and heating products available on the market. He notes that the new, high-efďŹ ciency furnaces (the only efďŹ ciency level available now) have generated a lot of business doing retro-ďŹ ts on older homes. “The new furnaces provide much more cost effective heating for people ‌the old furnaces would heat up to a certain level, then cut out and run until it cooled down to a certain temperature, and then cut back in. On the new furnaces, it just cuts in and cuts out three or four times more often than the old ones, all the while using less

energy in gas and electricity,â€? Edwards said. “And, with the secondary heat exchangers in these new units, they are super efďŹ cient.â€? For the moment, Edwards is a one-man operation, but he can foresee a time in the not too distant future when he might have to bring on additional help to keep up with the work load. He is already doing work in the Lanigan

area and is conďŹ dent that the potash development at Jansen will generate more work in the area in the future. Gary Edwards is committed to making a go of his business in Nokomis, and that commitment extends to building a new home in the community for his growing family which includes wife Leah, two children, and one on the way! -LMT staff

Joel you touched so many lives in the 17 1/2 wonderful years we had with you. Your great sense of humor made us all laugh! Your happy go lucky, caring, loving and compassionate ways made everyone feel comfortable around you. You were always positive and could see the best in everyone. Always had time to say “Hi.” We are so proud of you. Joel we miss: your beautiful smile, watching you play sports, the weekend adventure stories with your buddies, hearing you come home at night, those crazy curls, watching you with your sister and brothers, waking you in the morning, the sound of your voice, those big warm hugs. We miss you so much!

Our hearts are filled with   memories, We cherish each one every day. We know you had to leave us. But it still seems so unfair. May the winds of love blow   gently And whisper so you may hear How much we sadly miss you And wish you were here.   Forever loved by: Garth, Linda, Jesse,     Glenna, Len, Landon, Marj, Miranda, Lyle,    Janelle, Chad, 47c     Riley, Casey JOEL – Thanks for being such a good nephew, cousin, and friend. We miss you and think of you often. If memories bring us closer, We are never far apart, You are always here beside us And forever in our hearts.

Silton / Sask Beach / Kannata Valley News Mae Clarke • 729-3014

BIRTHDAYS THIS WEEK: OCTOBER 18 – BRISTOL PALIN OCTOBER 22 – BRIAN BOITANO ARIES You are beginning to understand things that until now had no importance for you. This makes you very happy. You are beginning to appreciate yourself more. TAURUS The planet Pluto causes you to be able to be flexible in everything, but you remain very demanding as far as the quality of your relationships is concerned. You want to make others understand your ideals. GEMINI You need some humour in your life. You are in a phase where everything you experience takes on a great deal of importance. You are much appreciated, and you know what you need to do in order for this to continue. CANCER The planet Mars causes you to want to avoid situations that you judge to be unworthy of you. You want to feel more respect for your inner self. Don’t worry too much. LEO This week, Planet Saturn brings you many disagreements. You are in a phase that requires a lot of questioning, and when things are explained to you, you feel you don’t want to settle for trivialities. VIRGO This week, you have the ability to better assert your opinions, especially if you want to do your work seriously. You do not enjoy being in situations where you will not be respected. LIBRA This week will make you understand several things related to your feelings. Your insights might rattle you, but everything that happens to you will allow you to better appreciate your life in the future. SCORPIO You will be drawn to do a lot of reasoning this week. Professionally, you might do several things at the same time, which could tire you out. SAGITTARIUS You are becoming closer to your family. You are in a phase where they are very important to you, and this gives you peace of mind and much personal satisfaction. You will soon realize this more fully. CAPRICORN This week the person you love will be front and centre in your life. More than ever, you have the capacity to feel good on an emotional level. You are pleasantly surprised by this, and be sure to experience it fully. AQUARIUS You are capable of being successful. This holds a lot of importance for you at the moment. You are heading towards situations where what you do will be fully understood and appreciated. You must be in no doubt of this. PISCES This week brings you great joy for living. The North Node (the Moon’s ascending node) favours your projects and causes you to be truly creative. You think this is wonderful.

Thanksgiving is over and we hope each and everyone of you enjoyed the beautiful Thanksgiving long weekend with your families and friends. We truly have a lot to be thankful for. Something I read over the long weekend that really made a lot of sense and I quote: ‘Forgiveness,’ anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive. When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden. Forgiveness doesn’t mean what happened is OK, and it doesn’t mean that person should still be welcome in your life. It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go. Thus the reason for ‘thanksgiving’ and being happy. On Sunday, October 2, seven people from the Silton area attended the Saskatchewan Senior Volunteer Awards Celebration at TCU Place in Saskatoon. The folks who went were: Fay Willcox, Kelly and Amanda Willcox, Margaret McElhinney, Arnold and Elaine Ritter and Robert Walker. Mr. Lorne Calvert, Master of Ceremonies for the evening, welcomed the crowd to the Second Annual Saskatchewan Seniors Volunteer Awards Night. Greetings were given by Honourable Dr. Gordon Barnhart, Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Honorable Don McMorris, Saskatoon Tribal Council ViceChief Geraldine Arcand, Métis Nation of Saskatchewan President Robert Doucette, Saska-

teers in the nation and many of these volunteers are those who have already made a lifetime of giving of themselves. The Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism recently presented the Celebrating Seniors Volunteer Awards to acknowledge the efforts of our older residents who have made a lifetime of donating their time and expertise. A very tasty buffet was served to approximately 180 plus people. Senator Pamela Wallin was guest speaker for the evening. Holly Schick from Saskatchewan Senior Mechanism announced the winner from each of the 10 categories. For each category/candidate there was a power point presentation and we were extremely proud of the presentation for Fay Willcox, Community Leadership (Rural) category. Fay had her picture taken with the Honourable Gordon Barnhart, she received a lovely corsage and a gift bag and certificate. A wonderful time was had by all. ‘Greek Night on the Prairies,’ the final touches are being made and we are very excited and believe this will be the best event ever. I hope you have your tickets as this will be a night to remember. Nicky Makris with his wife Marina donate and volunteer a huge amount of their time and efforts to these fund raising events. We are so happy to say they are part of the backbone of

our community. Happy Birthday Marina. How did we manage to organize our community event on your birthday. Nicky will make it up to you and take you back to Greece before year-end! -Mae Clarke
