Vicky Parohl is the residence life co-ordinator at the University of Saskatchewan. Bridges photo by Andrew Spearin

By Jeanette Stewart Vicky Parohl is a University of Saskatchewan graduate, but she still calls campus home. Parohl grew up in Kindersley and joined the residence community almost by accident. She grew to love living on campus, which serves as home to about 2,000 students during the school year. Parohl was hired after she fin-

ished her bachelor’s degree at the U of S. As a residence life co-ordinator, Parohl supervises a team of residence assistants and meets with students who have problems or concerns. She’s now responsible for about 400 students who will live in the new College Quarter building this year.

Q: How long have you lived at the U of S? A: Since September 2006.

Q: What made you want to live there? A: I needed a place to live. Honestly, I planned on living in an apartment with friends and it fell through and I ended up living on campus and somehow I ended up staying here for this long. Q: What appealed to you about living on campus? A: The proximity to everything. It’s really nice being able to wake up and get to class and be able to go

back to your room or apartment between classes. It’s really easy. In all residence buildings you don’t really have to worry about paying bills or anything, so that’s pretty nice. And then meeting people. I didn’t really know anyone when I came here but I met so many people living in residence.

Q: How do you think living at the university differs from living off campus?

A: I think that the biggest thing is support. You have a built-in support system, you have people there helping you transition. You’re closer to all the supports on campus as well, like student health and counselling. I think that’s the biggest thing. I think it just makes the transition a lot easier, and just the built in social networks you gain. If you’re living in a house you might have four roommates but living in residence you’re living with 500 other people.

Q: When I lived in residence in Regina, one of the coolest things was getting to live with international students. I wouldn’t have done that otherwise. Is that something you experienced as well? A: For sure. Especially in the apartments we have a lot of international students. It’s definitely a really neat experience. In a lot of our buildings you do get paired up with an international student, especially in the apartments. Q: You just moved into the new College Quarter building. What made you want to live there? A: The apartments are really nice, but more than that I really like the community within the smaller apartments. With only four people in an apartment people get to know each other a little bit more. I really like working with younger students. The atmosphere in a first-

and second-year building is a lot more lively than the atmosphere in a building where we have a lot of upper year and graduate students.

Q: You’ve already graduated from university. Do you ever feel like you should move out? A: People ask me that a lot. It is still living in residence, it is a live-in position. I do feel like I’d feel like more of a grown-up if I was living outside of residence, but it’s just an incredible place to live and work. I love working with university students who are figuring it out for the first time, and the university is a great place to work. There’s so many great people and it’s such a supportive community. Sometimes I wonder if maybe it’s time to move on and move out, but I love everything about the university and working with the students.

and video games. They’re having a big slip and slide. Sometimes we do things like we go out to the go-carting track or to watch hockey games or football games, paintballing, all sorts of things.

Q: It sounds like it would be impossible not to make friends. A: It really is. With all the opportunities to get out and socialize, there’s no excuse. If you want to make friends there’s no reason not to.

During the first week of classes at the University of Saskatchewan, the Bowl is taken over by beer gardens and live music. Bridges photo by Andrew Spearin

Q: What kind of social events do you do at residence? A: We’ve got Welcome Week coming up and they’re doing Res Olympics.

The four College Quarter buildings will all compete against one another. They’re having a Mission Impossible night, capture the flag, board games

Q: What’s your favourite part of campus to visit and hang out? A: I just like hanging out in the bowl. It’s just so simple, but I’ve got friends who work on all corners of campus, or who are going to school on all corners of campus, but the bowl is kind of a central area to hang out or eat lunch or play Frisbee. I think that still might be my favourite.

I don’t feel obligated to change anything about the way this university has operated. — Ilene Busch-Vishniac

Meet the president

The first female president has the smarts and the heart to put the University of Saskatchewan on the map.  By Jeanette Stewart

Ilene Busch-Vishniac made Saskatoon a better place to live even before she moved here. Through her research the scientist,

who is now president of the University of Saskatchewan, helped make huge improvements to sound wall technology, saving backyard barbecues from the noise of freeway traffic. In fact, Busch-Vishniac holds 11 patents in the United States, among them a transducer (a device that converts energy from one form to another) for blood pressure monitoring; sound absorbing panels; optical sensors; and something called a capacitative microphone. Her latest work focuses on

reducing noise in hospitals. Busch-Vishniac is a brilliant scientist and a world-renowned researcher. She also has a sense of humour. She arrives in her office with a big smile, and apologizes for being just a few minutes late. “I was meeting with the Provost solving the problems of the world,” she jokes. After about a month on the job, Busch-Vishniac appears to be settled into her office in the newly christened

Peter MacKinnon building. The office, in what used to be called the College Building, looks over the Bowl where students sit enjoying the sunshine. Fittingly, there’s a sound-art installation within view — a gutted piano wired to speakers on the roof. Busch-Vishniac’s predecessor Peter MacKinnon put a friendly face on university politics during his 13year tenure, going so far as to pose with his feet on the desk eating pizza in the student newspaper’s year-end

parody issue. Busch-Vishniac admits she can’t remember the last time she ate a piece of pizza. But — dietary mindfulness aside — it’s clear only a few minutes after meeting her that the university has chosen a warm and personable leader. Rather than a shadow, she sees MacKinnon’s legacy as something to build upon. The outgoing president spent six months coaching her after she was named his successor in December, 2011.

Rather than feeling like I have big shoes to fill, I feel as though (Peter MacKinnon) built a platform for me from which I can see clearly everything that was going on. So he, in a very real sense, laid the foundation for me to take over. — Busch-Vishniac

“Rather than feeling like I have big shoes to fill, I feel as though he built a platform for me from which I can see clearly everything that was going on. So he, in a very real sense, laid the foundation for me to take over,” she said. “I think Peter was wonderful. I don’t feel obligated to change anything about the way this university has operated. I’m aware that we still have some challenges.” As the ninth president of the U of S in the institution’s 105 year history, Busch-Vishniac is the first woman to take the job, overseeing nearly 20,000 students, some 4,000 employees — including 1,100 full-time academic staff — and an operating budget of nearly $423-million. She cheerfully agrees to a photo shoot, even helping the photographer untangle the cord to the lights he’s brought — evidence of an analytical mind at work. Busch-Vishniac is an American by birth who began her post-secondary career with the intention of becoming a classical pianist. In her first address as University president designate, she said “my career has been

quite a journey to date, and I marvel that a one-time music student from Philadelphia has somehow managed to navigate a winding path, ending up here as the president of the University of Saskatchewan.” Sitting down in her spacious office more than seven months later, she still seems full of wonder about her career path. “Every now and then I would think about what the future might hold for me, and I would have all sorts of thoughts about various opportunities. And never in my wildest dreams did I expect to take the route that I have taken,” she said. ■ ■ ■ ■ Busch-Vishniac grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and began studying at the Eastman School of Music after high school. “I thought that I would be a musician. I actually learned pretty early that I’m not talented enough,” she said, her face framed by tiny earrings that almost resemble treble clefs. Continued on Page 8

Every now and then I would think about what the future might hold for me, and I would have all sorts of thoughts about various opportunities. And never in my wildest dreams did I expect to take the route that I have taken. — Busch-Vishniac

Realizing she’d never be “the world’s greatest musician,” she pondered a course in music therapy. But it was actually a first-year course on the physics of music (with only 12 people in the class) that led her to study the science of sound. “It was my small class,” she said. “I went from thinking about music to thinking more broadly about the science of sound.” She moved on to the study of acoustics, finishing her undergraduate degree at the University of Rochester. In 1978, she earned her master’s degree and in 1981 a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her work as a graduate student included research to make quieter computer printers. Her research on reducing noise in the suburbs — tweaking those ubiquitous sound walls that line freeways across North America — has also been ongoing. During a short employment with the Bell telephone company, she also worked to improve conference calling systems to eliminate echo. In 1982, she became a mechanical engineering professor at the University of Texas at Austin. In 1998, she moved to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore as professor and dean of engineering. In 2007, she moved to Canada and became the provost and vice-president academic at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont. She spent five years in Hamilton before being recruited to the U of S. At every turn, Busch-Vishniac has made inroads for women in engineering. She was the third woman to become a faculty member at the University of Texas, and at Johns Hopkins she was the third female dean of an engineering school. She’s also making history at the U of S as the first female president. “The higher up you go, it’s true the fewer and fewer women there are,” she said. But she quickly turns the topic to greater equality for all. “Issues of diversity and equity and access relate quite frequently less to gender and gender discrimination — although there may still be some vestiges of that — but we tend

instead to think about rural-versus-urban, aboriginal-versus-nonaboriginal. Even among aboriginal communities: ‘Did you go to school on-reserve or were you in a school off-reserve?’ Those issues become hugely important.” When she was named presidentdesignate, the search committee pointed to her academic credentials as well as her focus on aboriginal education and diversity — specifically her work with Ontario’s Six Nations during her time at McMaster. “My experience and willingness to do all in my power to work with First Nations communities is certainly known, so I’d be surprised if that didn’t have some influence,” she said. “I think my commitment to all of the people who live in this province is unquestioned.” Her C.V. lists countless awards and honours, professional and consulting work that ranges from acoustic renovations and tumour detection research to hearing aids.

She’s considered one of the world’s leading authorities on electromechanical sensors and actuators, the devices that convert energy such as sound waves into electrical signals. While it seems like she’d barely have time to sleep and eat, she is also a mother of two grown daughters and recently became a grandmother. Her husband Ethan Vishniac, a noted astrophysicist, has taken a position on the faculty at the U of S. Neither of the couple’s children have followed their parents’ academic trajectories. Both are still in the United States, and the youngest one has left biochemistry to “go into that much dirtier field of politics,” working as a field organizer for a New York State Senate candidate. ■ ■ ■ ■ Busch-Vishniac is herself less a politician and more of a diplomat. She believes the relationship between the university and the Government of Saskatchewan is on

stable footing, and regularly meets with City of Saskatoon officials. “There’s every indication that the terrific relationship between the provincial government and the university will continue,” she said. At the same time, the question of resources and ongoing issues at the university can’t be ignored. The university must reduce $44.5-million in debt by 2016, and the College of Medicine is currently undergoing challenges to its accreditation status. The province asked the university to borrow $95-million to finish the academic health sciences building instead of providing the expected cash. Add to this rising tuition rates and ever-present demands on teaching faculty. According to an article by the university’s in house newspaper, during her time at McMaster she hired 41 faculty despite the economic downturn in Ontario, a fact that should instil a sense of hope in U of S academics. Her vision for the university

involves effectively using the resources that already exist at the university and turn the U of S into a world-renowned institution. “This university has all of what I consider the characteristics to let it really blast off and become among the best research-intensive universities in the world,” she said. “We have everything we need to now take what we have — which is already quite good — and begin competing with the best schools in the world.” While the U of S is not highly ranked internationally, she believes the university has the opportunity to get there in the next decade. She picks out one example of a program she believes is world-class. Recently, the dean of the law school took her downtown to view the CLASSIC (Community Legal Services for Saskatoon Inner City Inc.) program at work. It matches law students who work with professionals to offer legal services to people who couldn’t otherwise afford them.

“It works for the city, it works for the courts. It helps the students solidify why they want to be lawyers. It gains them experience and it works for the community,” she said. A faculty member in the law school is also using the work being done by CLASSIC as part of her research. “It’s the full gamut. It’s good for students. It is being written up and we’re using it as a platform for research, and it works for the community. It is exactly what we ought to be doing,” she said. In a way, her own productivity should set a tone for the institution. In the last year, she published two papers and gave three invited talks. She expects to stay current in her field but says the duties of her new job will make it tough to continue researching. She’ll continue to give talks about her research work. In February, she’ll give a talk in Boston on her work on mechanical engineering curricula. She looks at juggling the teaching and research demands placed upon academics a bit differently. “That makes it sound like you can isolate

teaching over here and research over there, when in fact they’re like this,” she said, clasping her hands together. “I’m fond of saying teaching and research are opposite sides of the same coin. And they don’t divide undergraduate and graduate. We know that the best pedagogies, the best teaching methods to use in order to promote learning stem from research. “My job is to make sure we facilitate being able to be innovative in the classroom, as well as being innovative in discovery, whether that’s your laboratory or a library or a painting,” she said. She looks forward to her own discovery, which includes a tour of the province in September, exploring “every nook and cranny” of Saskatchewan and seeing the northern lights for the first time. It’s clear she already has a love for her new home, and is working on ways to make it better. Another personal goal, which she has already discussed with city officials, is to ensure urban lighting faces downward to give city dwellers a better view of the stars.

U of S students learn cooking from scratch By Jenn Sharp Don’t know how to cook? Help is on the way. Calgary-based food writer and culinary instructor Dan Clapson has brought his successful cooking program to the University of Saskatchewan for the first time this fall. The non-profit Start From Scratch began as a small pilot venture at the University of Calgary in January, 2011. The classes, which teach the basics of cooking from scratch and on a budget, quickly became popular. Seventy-five students have since taken the free classes through the U of C. Clapson, who grew up in Saskatoon, said he wanted university students to be able to cook

good wholesome food, rather than spend money on unhealthy take out. He hopes to inspire the next generation to love creating in the kitchen. “The idea is loosely based on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution campaign,” he said. “We’re getting people to eat better.” The first U of S Start From Scratch classes begin Sept. 25 and run for 10 weeks. The class meets once a week for two to three hours. Classes cover different topics and themes each week. One class will cover everything from boiling pasta to making sauce from scratch, while another may teach students how to make a romantic dinner on a budget. Students can expect to leave with the skills (and recipes) to master everything from breakfast to baking at the end of the 10 weeks.

WOMEN NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HEALTHY BRAS

Have you gone on a bra shopping trip, only to be frustrated, walking away empty handed? Jeunique International, founded in 1959, manufactures health bras based on the engineering of the Golden Gate Bridge (balanced load suspension). Shirley McInnes (International Executive Director), a Certified Bra Fitter, is coming to Saskatoon for a 2 day Bra Clinic. Bras on the market with frills and lace may look nice, but they are not doing their job. (85% OF WOMEN ARE WEARING THE WRONG BRA!) A women needs support from beneath the breast tissue. The Tab and the Jeunique Bras both fit small to full figure, sports, maternity and mastectomy - 200 sizes and 3 styles to choose from 30A - 46KK; no bounce, no wires to gouge or bruises or impeded lymphatic drainage and circulation. Does not ride up in the back or fall off the shoulders and promotes better posture. Switching to a custom fitted bra is like giving up a floppy pair of slippers for an orthotic shoe. Once women adjust to the uplift and snugness (a couple of weeks) you become a life-long client. Doctors, massage therapists, chiropractors often refer their patients to us.

I want to teach them some solid skills and that cooking can be fun and easy. With some practice and basic skills, anyone can be a rock star in the kitchen — Thomas Brown

Students will always be taught to prepare meals that can be done easily and with minimal ingredients. “Students don’t have a lot of money,” said Clapson. “The last thing they want to spend it on is food.” The primary reason Start From Scratch has taken off in Calgary is that the program addresses students’ intimidation factor. Clapson (who helps teach the U of C classes) said many students haven’t learned basic kitchen skills by the time they enter university. He wants to show them just how simple and affordable cooking at home can be. “Cooking from scratch is easier than people think.” The first Saskatoon class size is small with just 15 participants. Clapson wants everyone to have one-onone time with the instructor, Thomas Brown. Brown is a chef at Prairie Ink (in McNally Robinson) and owns Wild Cuisine Catering. He said teaching the U of S students will be an “awesome”

way to share some of his knowledge. “I want to teach them some solid skills and that cooking can be fun and easy. With some practice and basic skills, anyone can be a rock star in the kitchen.” The U of S Students’ Union has helped Clapson promote Start From Scratch, along with Gordon Zello, division head of the College of Nutrition. Potential students were asked to fill out an online application, from which the first 15 Saskatoon students were picked. A Saskatoon sponsor has not yet been confirmed (the Co-op sponsors the U of C Start From Scratch program). A June fundraiser brought in $4,500 towards startup costs for the Saskatoon chapter. Classes will be held on the U of S campus and are open only to students at the university. For more information or to apply for the next intake, visit startfromscratch.ca.

New residence is a new home for first year student BY Jeanette Stewart WHO? Patrick Stewart, a first-year business student at the University of Saskatchewan. WHAT? Stewart’s apartment in the Pine Hall at the brand new College Quarter residence. WHEN? Stewart moved in Sept. 3, just in time for classes to start. WHY? After completing a year in the Katimavik program and sharing a room with five other people, having his own space wasn’t incredibly important to him, but he said he appreciates how much room each person in the apartment gets. “It’s a fairly new residence. All the furniture is new and you get a lot of space,” he said. “Two people have one bathroom and all four people have an entire kitchen. There’s no worries about who cleans up. It’s all fairly easy to deal with.” HOW? Stewart didn’t bring much with him aside from a laptop, duffel bag of clothes and an acoustic guitar. His decorating plans for his room are fairly minimal. “I imagine I might put up some posters, maybe mess it up a little bit more,” he laughed.

Volkswagen fits family’s outdoor lifestyle Jeremy Hiebert has always owned Volkswagens so he was thrilled when his wife Erin suggested they buy a 1977 Westfalia van. After five years of restoring it, they now take it camping every weekend. By Jenn Sharp Q: Describe your ride: A: It’s a 1977 Volkswagen van, a Westfalia edition. That means it came with the pop top and the camping interior. I bought it off some kid, used it for tree planting in Prince George — I brought it up from Florida. It was in pretty good shape when we bought it 10 years ago. We drove it around for two weeks and it was only running on three out of four cylinders. We were still driving it — it was so much fun — but it started to light on fire on us so we figured we better start taking it apart. We started to fix the engine and realized it was in pretty good shape. We decided to fix all the rust and it just went crazy from there. We stripped it down to bare metal and started building it up. It was a whole family project. Q: So your wife Erin was on board with the restoration then? A: My wife was in it just as much as me. We wire wheeled and painted the whole undercarriage. We ended up looking like spotted leopards for a week because we were trying to paint underneath and not let it drip on us. My son Jason is 10 years old now. I have a picture from when we first pulled the engine, Jason was

a toddler sitting on my knee. Last year we finally got on the road and I took a picture of Jason and me before we put the engine in.

Q: How long did you work on it? A: It was about five years. In the summer we didn’t work on it too much because we’re out camping a lot. It sucked be-

cause we wanted to go camping with it but it wasn’t done yet. We’ve been trying to take it as many places as possible. It has a fridge, a kitchen sink, a stove and a water tank.

Q: Do you sleep in it? A: Yep. The roof pops up and beds come down. Luckily you can still get parts for almost everything. The only hard

part is getting good parts.

Q: What do you call this green colour? A: Volkswagen calls it sage green. When we started gutting it we thought ‘now’s the time to change the colour.’ We thought about it and decided we had to keep it green. You can still find the tartan covers so wherever they were worn

out or ripped we replaced them. We put heaters in the seats — they’re not known for their heat.

Q: Why did you decide to restore this van instead of buying a fancy new RV? A: I like working on my own junk and I love being outside — so does the whole family. It was Erin’s idea to buy it ori-

ginally. It was good to have the whole family on board. This thing suits us perfectly. I drive it to work. We tow a little boat behind it. I made a little trailer shaped like a Pilsner cube for it. I’ve had Volkswagens all my life and it was really cool that my wife was into it too. This one came up and it seemed like a no-brainer.

Each week Bridges, in connection with SaskatoonMoms.com, gathers advice from parents to share with other moms and dads. This week we asked:

How are you adjusting to back-to-school? How did you prepare? “My boy started kindergarten. He’s excited, I’m a wreck! I don’t remember it being so difficult with my older children, but time is flying by so fast and seeing him start school is just a reminder of that. We prepared by shopping for school supplies together and talking about how much fun it will be to take the bus and make new friends. His sister is excited as well and can’t wait to go, but she will have to wait another year!” — Carla Contreras “Back-to-school shopping includes looking for new clothes that are comfortable and yet fashionable enough to fit in with the other students. Then of course there is all the regular books and paper and stuff that go along with school shopping. However, this year’s twist is: I’m the one going back to school, not the kids!” — Judy S. “The twins were so excited that they woke up and got dressed at 2:30 a.m.” — @MarkHorseman via Twitter “Our kids are getting older so we’ve been at this a few times. We know the best way to get all of the supplies is to choose one store that will give us the overall best prices with acceptable quality. Once in the store don’t look at the price tags, get everything at once. It’s cut out a lot of frustration rather than going from store to store.

Adjusting to back to school for most parents seems to be a happy time but I don’t personally understand that. We really enjoy the summers and spending as much family time together as possible. Going back to school means the end of most of those summertime activities, back to hustle and bustle, and it’s the time of year it really sinks in for a parent that they and us are a year older — so not so happy (for us). Going back to school also brings back the problems that naturally come with that environment… back to tears from bullying, or concerns over friendships, etc. Can’t summer last forever?” — Jason Roske “My son is in Grade 1 so to prepare we talked about how Grade 1 will be different than kindergarten and tried to get him to practice his printing, etc. So far school is fine but he does not like the fact that they don’t get as much playtime.” — Nikki Melnyk “With my kids going into Grade 2 this fall, we worked on our back-to-school preparations together: the kids helped with shopping for school supplies, labelling everything and packing their backpacks before they headed off. And this year, like most years, the kids already seem to be happily adjusted while I am still worrying about them and how their school year will go!” — Regan Seidler

Trevor Green:

Fashion fit for campus By Jeanette Stewart Amanda Naber has just started her third year of nursing school at the University of Saskatchewan. The student usually has to sport scrubs, but she was heading to class in a sunny outfit. Style isn’t usually something she thinks about, but she was happy to talk about her apparel.

Simple and subtle By Ashley Martin

Trevor Green is so comfortable in a suit, he refuses to participate in casual Friday at work. A lawyer for three years at Olive Waller Zinkhan & Waller LLP, Green believes clothes should reflect a person’s personality. He quotes Mark Twain, who probably said it best: “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.” The 28-yearold gravitates to a “traditional, classical, iconic style of dark suits, not a lot of crazy patterns,” and says “if you put it on and you look in the mirror and you have to justify how it goes together, then you know that it doesn’t.” Green frequents VIP Mens Wear, Oliver’s Menswear and Colin O’Brian to build a classic wardrobe.

JEAN FREEMAN

The authority on the goose chase I’m only one of many, many people who love and admire the beauties and benefits of Wascana Centre. Residents of Regina, as well as visitors to the Queen City from all around the world, treasure and delight in Canada’s fourth largest urban park (larger than Central Park in New York, or Stanley Park in Vancouver). Since 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of Wascana Centre Authority (established in 1962 by an act of the Saskatchewan Legislature, which united the province of Saskatchewan, the City of Regina, and the University of Regina), I thought this would be an excellent time to create a new, entertaining and Jean Freeman

interesting way of looking at (and appreciating) this jewel in our crown. So, with the support and encouragement of the Wascana Centre Authority and the University of Regina, illustrator Val Lawton and I collaborated on Wascana Wild Goose Chase, a whimsical, colorful, easyto-carry book that doubles as a walking guide, with a touch of history and a sprinkling of fascinating facts and statistics about the many educational, cultural, environmental and recreational features that Wascana has to offer. The fanciful rhyming tale follows Lucy Goose and Alexander Gander as they play hide-and-

seek all year long throughout Wascana Park. (Readers can conduct their own “Where’s Lucy?” search in each of the ten double-page watercolor scenes!) Wascana Wild Goose Chase was launched on midsummer eve at the Centre’s Summer Solstice Soirée, and now it’s on the shelves in Regina at Chapters, Apperly Place at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Cumberland Gallery at the Legislative Building, the MacKenzie Gallery Gift Shop, Atom & Geek (the gift shop at the Saskatchewan Science Centre), the U of R Book Store, the RCMP Heritage Centre Gift Shop and Brewed Awakening Coffee Shop. In Moose Jaw, you’ll find it at Post Horizon Booksellers, and in Saskatoon at McNally Robinson and Indigo Booksellers. And of course, online as well through www.yournickelsworth.com, amazon.ca and chapters.ca.

Saskatoon-based horse breeders make their mark By Jenn Sharp

Entering the grounds of Rae-Dawn Arabians is like stepping into another world — a world where horses reign supreme. They’re meticulously cared for each day on the immaculate grounds of the farm, located just east of Saskatoon. One special horse even has his own paddock beside the family’s outdoor kitchen. Rae-Dawn Arabians is home to the multinational award winning stallion Bey Ambition, along with numerous other national calibre purebred Arabian horses. A total of 70 horses call the farm home. Owning a horse as special as Bey Ambition was something Murray and Shirley Popplewell never imagined when they bought their first horses in 1997. Murray says they were just looking for trail horses to ride recreationally. Those first two were Arabians and managed to capture their owners’ hearts. It didn’t take long before the couple was researching bloodlines and buying broodmares to start their own breeding operation. “We thought it was going to be easy. We thought we would just breed our mare to a champion stallion and we would produce a baby that everybody would want to buy and we would sell it. We wouldn’t even have to show it. But it didn’t work that way,” says Murray. Claudinei Machado, a horse trainer from Brazil, came to work on the farm in 2002. He taught the couple a lot about which mares to breed if they wanted to show at the national level. “If you don’t start with quality you can’t end up with quality. The mare is about 75 to 80 per cent of that foal. So you have to start with a quality mare. That’s where Claudinei came along and said the mares we had were at a lower level,” says Murray. “He was more focused on where he wanted to be. He didn’t want to be showing at the regional level all the time. He wanted to be at the national level.” “We learned together and tried to get better every year,” adds Machado. Sounds of horses whinnying punctuate the air as Murray relates the tale of how they came from knowing next to nothing about horses to owning one of the top ranked stallions in North America. Machado spotted the young Bey Ambition at a horse show in Las Vegas and knew instantly he was the one.

“Every breeding farm is built around a stallion. Bey solidified that. We always thought we didn’t need a stallion because we could breed to whatever horses we wanted. But it really starts to show you what you want in a horse. He was all that. His refined neck, great body — Claudinei knew the horse was a good one. It took us 10 minutes to decide we wanted to buy him,” says Murray. Machado has worked consistently with the magnificent stallion since that time, forming a close bond that many trainers strive for but never achieve. Their bond was evident when, in 2009, they won one of the top honours in the Arabian horse industry: U.S. National Champion in the Stallion Halter class, followed by a win at the Canadian Nationals two years later. “He’s a one of a kind. I try to have a good relationship with all my horses but some are special. It’s like a relationship — some girls are more special than other girls. I think it was meant to be. Bey Ambition was meant to

be: for me and him, and for Rae-Dawn Arabians,” said Machado. Purchasing the bay stallion changed everything for the then relatively unknown Saskatoon farm. The majority of the North American Arabian horse industry is based in the United States. The biggest horse shows are also held there. To get noticed and attract buyers, RaeDawn needed to build their reputation with a horse that would make people remember them. That horse also needs to produce foals that are as good or better. “His first baby was a national champion. That’s the best thing that could ever happen. He’s proving himself,” says Murray. Besides his good looks, Bey Ambition is a pleasure to work with. “He’s such a gentleman … so easy going,” says Machado “He goes into the show ring and he’s the king. He just raises up,” adds Murray For the Popplewells, breeding and raising horses is a dream come true. Murray describes

it as a passion. “You’ve got something that’s unique — nobody else has one like this. You can breed the same stallion to the same mare but the result isn’t the same. It’s fun, it’s a challenge. And you’re always trying to hit the home run.” Five years ago, the couple purchased a second farm in Scottsdale, Ariz. The city is home to the largest Arabian horse show in the world. People travel there from all over the world to buy and sell their finest horses. The Popplewells divide their time between Saskatoon and Arizona in the winter, while Machado stays in Arizona for six months a year, training and showing the horses. On Sept. 14 at 6 p.m., Rae-Dawn is hosting the 10th anniversary of their annual Arabian Nights open barn. It’s also a celebration of Machado’s 10 years with the farm. The event is free, open to the public, and will feature farm tours, a horse show with Bey Ambition and his foals, food and live music. For more information, call 241-1199 or email spop@rdarabians.com.

Food Trends

U of S campus full of foodie options

By Jenn Sharp

Back to classes means finding food on campus that suits your budget and tastes. We want to help you navigate the eating options at the University of Saskatchewan campus. So the Saskatoon-based Bridges staff (all U of S alumni) ventured back and discovered the foodie scene has changed a lot since we were in classes. First and foremost, I was happily impressed with the wide selection. Places like St. Thomas Moore (STM) and Browsers are even incorporating fresh, local ingredients. My first stop was at STM’s Choices cafeteria, which by the way is the poshest cafeteria I’ve seen in a long time. A huge gluten-free menu, along with inventive salads, homemade soups and international selections make this the best place to go if you have a big group of picky eaters. There’s something for everyone. I had the homemade soup of the day — vegan sweet potato and pimento, topped with fresh parsley, and a whole wheat herb biscuit. It was $5, filled me up all day, plus it tasted great. You can’t beat that. Next stop: Browsers Café to check out the new menu which was just launched last week. It’s huge! There are five kinds of poutine (we love poutine), lots of international dishes, more inventive salads and student saver meals for $7 (most other meals were under $10). I’m daring someone to try the Excalibur — a $19 burger made of two prime rib patties with cheese, bacon, fried mushrooms, lettuce and tomato. The bun has been replaced with two grilled cheese sandwiches; it’s like the Saskatchewan version of KFC’s Double Down. If you can eat it, Louis’ (the owner of Browsers) will crown you Knights of the Excalibur and put your picture on their Facebook page. The Place Riel renovation was kind to the food court area — it’s almost too nice to eat greasy food there. And there’s a lot of greasy food in Place Riel. If you’re looking to gain the ‘freshman 15,’ you’ve come to the right place — kiosks serving everything from carb overloads to salt attacks will call out to you when you’re at your weakest moment. Instead, head to Umi Sushi Express or Extreme Pita which have healthy options at reasonable prices. Treats is serving rotisserie chicken this year. Le Crepe Bistro has whole wheat crepes. (I went for my favourite: Nutella and banana, which I managed to drip all over my shirt. It was so worth it.)

Jeanette Stewart visited the newly revamped Marquis Dining Hall, calling the amount of choices “dizzying:” “The university dining hall (which serves as the meal hall for university residents without a kitchen) underwent vast improvements in recent years, and now offers a huge array of meal options. “Though it was difficult to choose, I went for the salad bar and a serving of roast beef. The meal felt healthy, but it was easy to over serve and end up wasting food with so many good looking choices. “On the first day of school the hall was offering three choices of soup, breakfast bagels, an

assortment of cereal, a salad bar with healthy greens — not just pale iceberg lettuce — and raw vegetables, made-to-order sandwiches, risotto, several kinds of roast vegetables, Yorkshire pudding, pizza, french fries, pasta, a range of beverages (coffee, tea, fountain pop, juice) and several dessert options. The only thing that felt a little lacking was fresh fruit, and I didn’t ask what the vegetables were roasted in. It’s likely vegan students would have to stick to salad.” Andrew Spearin went for the best fast food burger around, Harvey’s: “With the renovation of lower Place Riel, there are more options on campus to grab a bite

to eat. Of course there are healthier choices, but with a high metabolism and a craving for salt, I could not resist the temptation of what I consider the top of the fast food burger pyramid: Harvey’s. The U of S campus is Saskatchewan’s only location for the Canadian chain. Their flame-grilled burgers are topped off with your choice of condiments. It was delicious. There’s also poutine.” Are you studying at the University of Regina this year?

GARDENING #T I P S

F O R s A S K AT C H E WA N G A R D E N E R S

Extending the growing season

A fall garden patch is shown protected against frost with a crop cover. PHOTO BY JACKIE BANTLE

By Jackie Bantle As much as I hate to admit it, those chilly nights are upon us and the ‘f ’ word (i.e. frost) is close behind. Although autumn does not officially arrive until Sept. 22, the average fall frost date in Saskatchewan is Sept. 15. I always find that much too early to say goodbye to my vegetable garden. There are a few strategies you can use to delay that inevitable killing frost and extend the fall season in your garden. Covering plants with sheets, blankets or towels is the most common method of frost protection. If using these, or some other household fabric, avoid covering plants until after 6 p.m. since these materials do not allow light through. Remove the covering in the morning after it has warmed up. Ensure that these covers

are not too heavy to avoid breaking plant stems or knocking fruit off. If it is going to be a windy night, make sure that the edges of the covers are secured so that they do not blow off. You can also use special purpose floating crop covers or frost covers available from your local garden centre. Usually crop covers provide 2-3 C of frost protection. The benefit of using these is that they will allow enough light through during the day and can be left in place until you are ready to harvest. If you only have a few small plants to protect, you can use hot caps (an upside down cone shaped structure that is 30-50 cm in diameter made of paper, cloth or plastic) or a Wall of Water (a cone shaped ring of connected plastic tubes filled with water). The hot cap provides a maximum of 2 C frost protection whereas a closed Wall of Water can provide

up to 5 to 7 C of frost protection. The Wall of Water works on the thermodynamic principle that as the water freezes, heat is released to the immediate environment surrounding the plant, thereby protecting it from frost. Walls of Water must be opened up during the day to prevent plants from overheating. Providing constant irrigation during a freezing period can also be used to protect your plants. By continuously watering or misting your plants during a frost event, the heat released by the freezing water will prevent the plants themselves from freezing. This approach is often used in large citrus orchards in the southern United States when unusual frost events threaten a crop. The entire crop is watered throughout the frost period. Even though there may be icicles forming on the branches and fruit, the trees and fruit will not

freeze as long as there is liquid water to provide heat. One word of caution: irrigation must be started before temperatures reach 0 C and continue until the air temperature rises above freezing. This may mean that you are watering your garden patch for several hours. During the fall, a wet garden does not dry out very quickly. After a few nights of several hours of watering, your garden can become very wet where plants will simply rot. For a more elaborate frost prevention method, construct a small portable cold frame and drape a string of old Christmas lights on the top. Set the lights to come on after sundown and turn off after sun up. These small lights will provide enough heat to prevent frost. Remember that LED lights do not produce any heat; it is older Christmas light bulbs that must be used. A single incandescent light

bulb will also produce heat but it will not be evenly distributed under the cold frame. Also, a small heater with a fan goes a long way to prevent frost in a portable tunnel, cold frame or small greenhouse. For those of you who are ready to let nature end your growing season, remember that green mature tomatoes will ripen off the vine, mature pumpkins and winter squash fruit can withstand 2-3 C of frost, root crops like potatoes and carrots can withstand several degrees of frost (as long as day temperatures are above 5 C) and parsnips and Brussels sprouts sweeten with a few degrees of frost.

WINE world #P a s q u a

Don’t miss one of the world’s great voices! From Nessum Dorma to Cohen’s Hallelujah, Coldplay to Journey, or Whitney Houston to Roy Orbison, every note soars with emotion!

V i l l a B o r g h e t t i Pa s s i m e n t o

Venetian wine a rare find By James Romanow Venice, and the hinterland surrounding it, is probably the most romantic spot in all of Italy, a veritable volcano of gothic inspiration for writers from Walpole forward. And the painters! But to focus on the culture for a moment — that piece of the puzzle that creates a situation where romance can breed — let’s look at the wines from Veneto. Venetians have been fond of wine since the Phoenicians first harboured there. They have contributed mightily to the wines of the world with several styles but the most celebrated is Amarone, a wine made from dried grapes — raisins really. The problem with Amarone is the icewine issue: raisins don’t yield much liquid and the wine typically starts around $40 in Canada. You can imagine my astonishment when I came across a Pasqua wine called Passimento. According to the label it is made from dried grapes and the wine costs a mere $18! So what’s up with that? Well it is definitely some kind of Amarone, although the grape blend is not usual using Corvina (usual), Croatina (usual) and Merlot (Santa Maria Madre di dio!) The wine is incredibly smooth with that combination of astringency and acidity that keeps Italian wine from becoming flabby. The bouquet is out of this world with fruit predominating, then spices, coffee and earth.

The palate is slightly leaner than a New World style but a much better food wine for it. And the wine is rich enough to get people through cocktail hour and into dinner. If this wine were a woman I’d be asking her to marry me. To get this much sizzle in this small a price tag is something you don’t find every day.
