helen ferris

Three-time cancer survivor honoured with award By Angelina Irinici Helen Ferris often asks a profound question: “We never know what life has in store for us. If we did, could we change it? Could we face it?” If Ferris had more information about ovarian cancer before she was diagnosed three years ago, her story could have been drastically different. It all started in 2004 when Ferris could sense something wasn’t right. She was experiencing abdomen and back pain, was lethargic, and eating was becoming difficult. But Ferris believed it wasn’t anything serious. “I’m too busy to be sick. I can’t be sick,” she remembers thinking at the time. When her doctor wasn’t able to perform a routine Pap test, Ferris went in for an ultrasound. It showed what doctors said were two large cysts on her ovaries. She asked for a biopsy, but listened to a gynecologist when he told her to go in for surgery to remove the cysts instead. When she woke up, she learned they weren’t cysts. She was diagnosed with stage 3c ovarian cancer; she was told there’s a 30 per cent chance she’d have five years to life. “The first thing you think is, ‘How bad is this?’ You are dumbfounded. You just feel like whoosh — the air is just gone out of you. Then it’s like OK, this is a fight and it takes you a while to get your head around it but then you’ve got to pick yourself up and get back in that ring and fight,” she says. But Ferris already fought hard — twice. In 1980, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer and in 1998 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has the BRCA 2 gene, which makes the body more susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer. She figures it had been developing for a year or longer; after all, she experienced symptoms for a year. “When I look back I think, ‘Everything was just screaming at me.’ But I didn’t know anything about it and I got a rude awakening. If I could have known more about it … maybe I would have been diagnosed earlier in the year when it hadn’t got to the point when I was a stage 3c.” That’s why Ferris tirelessly donates her time to spreading awareness of ovarian cancer to other women and their families. She shares her story through programs that discuss the desease and provides early detection

information to groups of women and medical students. She takes time to meet with women who have ovarian cancer and their families to answer questions and give advice. She also volunteers her time to the Saskatoon Ovarian Cancer Support Survivor Group and Saskatoon’s annual Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope fundraiser. At this year’s walk on Sept. 8, Ferris was presented the Peggy Truscott Award which is given to a woman to honour her achievements, contributions and involvement in supporting Ovarian Cancer Canada. Ferris says she was honoured, yet surprised to receive the award. “I do what I do. But it’s nice to be nominated and recognized.” Saskatoon’s Walk of Hope committee nominated her for the award. “This is her life,” says co-chair of the committee, Catherine Mazurkewich. “She just has a passion for delivering awareness to whomever and wherever she has the opportunity to do so.” Mazurkewich mentions when Ferris was getting work done at a mechanic’s shop, she left a few pamphlets to read and pass along. She adds that the women Ferris mentors would be “lost” without her. “They probably would have a lot of fear because of the unknown. Helen lays everything out on the line for them,” Mazurkewich says. After her diagnosis in January of 2004, she went into remission the following September. But in 2008, the cancer was found behind her bladder. She fought hard and went into remission for two years before the cancer came back, this time in February of 2012. “How long can I stand this?” she remembers thinking when she had her final recurrence. “It’s like standing in front of the firing squad, waiting for a trigger.” Ferris is now in remission again and calls it “bonus time”; she uses the time to spread awareness. There is no effective screening test for the early detection of ovarian cancer and contrary to some beliefs, a Pap smear and the HPV vaccine doesn’t detect or prevent ovarian cancer. Ferris spends time supporting friends who have ovarian cancer in palliative care and tears up when she lists the names of friends who have passed — three already in the last year. With the help of family and friends’ support, her new-found faith and positive affirmations, she continues to live “because you have

to life.” Ferris says one positive affirmation keeps her going everyday. She says it aloud with con-

fidence and strength in her voice. She ends it off by stating, boldly: “I am. I can. I will!” airinici@thestarphoenix.com/@angelinairinici

do it in a dress

Local climbers do it in a dress By Jenn Sharp If you can do it in pants, you can do it better in a dress. A group of Saskatoon men donned school girl dresses and went wall climbing recently in a fundraiser called Do It In A Dress. The event was started by the Australian non-profit organization One Girl in 2011. Since then, Do It In A Dress has spread globally. Saskatoon organizer Dustin Main held the first Canadian event last year after a friend involved with One Girl tipped him off about the charity. Main, along with his dad, Dale, and brother, Jeff, went on a 70 km, five-day hike in B.C.’s Mount Robson provincial park wearing dresses. The three raised $7,000. Main wanted more people involved in the 2013 fundraiser. He recruited 30 friends and colleagues in Saskatoon. At press time, they had raised $7,090. “For years, I’ve been wanting to find something that spoke to me personally and that did something different and got people involved. A lot of charities struggle to create that passion,” said the globe-trotting photographer and entrepreneur. Through his travels (Main has visited all seven continents), he’s realized how much Canada’s quality of life exceeds that in other countries. Gender rights and education are things he said many take for granted in this country. “Education changes things in a huge way for people.” Money raised through the Do It In A Dress campaign goes towards One Girl’s goal of providing 600 education scholarships to girls in Sierra Leone by 2014. On its website, One Girl states it costs about $300 to give one girl access to education. The organization is currently working in 14 communities in Sierra Leone. One Girl is also renovating classrooms, providing business training, grants, and women’s health education in these areas. Along with the unique Do It in A Dress fundraiser, One Girl’s small

size attracted Main. It was important for him to be involved with a non-profit that was careful to be accountable for how and where money is spent. “I wanted to make sure it was a smaller charity and that the things we do really make a difference. I want things done in an open, wise manner.” For Main’s brother Jeff, participating in Do It In A Dress has been a way

to give girls a world away a chance at a better life, through education and self-sufficiency. “When you look at what we’ve got here — whether it’s education or health care — it’s there, it’s given to us. In Africa… it’s hard for the girls to go to school.” Jeff ’s eight-year-old son Pierson was excited to be a part of the wall climbing event. “He’s pretty receptive to it. He’s

able to go out and go to school and do the things that we can do here that in other countries (he) wouldn’t be able to do (as easily).” Pierson wore his dress to school the day of the event. When people asked why he was wearing it, he turned around. An explanation is emblazoned on the back: “I’m doing it in a dress so I can send a girl in Africa to school.” Next year, Main hopes to grow the

fundraiser even more. “I’d like to do something bigger — with a couple of people like our big hike last year, but also an event with 100 people.” Main wants to reach a fundraising goal of $10,000 for Do It In A Dress in Saskatoon.

Sask. sees upswing of chiropractics on infants

By Kevin Menz Sheila Bonnett turns five-month old Charity Kerpan’s head from left to right and back again. She’s testing the baby’s range of motion.

“I warn parents the first time I do that,” says Bonnett, a chiropractor in Saskatoon. Some parents might cringe watching their infant’s head turn so much, but as Charity’s mother Summer Kerpan says, “babies are very flexible.” But wait. Aren’t chiropractors for

older adults with creaky joints and brittle bones? What’s an infant doing at the chiropractor? The Saskatchewan government subsidized 5,297 chiropractic treatments for children under six in 2009. More recent numbers are unavail-

able because the province stopped subsidizing most chiropractic care in 2010, but it’s not uncommon to find children lying on chiropractic beds throughout the province. About 70 per cent of Bonnett’s patients are families, she says, and about half of those patients are chil-

dren. She guesses of those children, a slight majority are infants and toddlers. Charity is calm. She giggles as Bonnett rotates her head. Her mother first took Charity to the chiropractor when she was just one day old.

I don’t treat the same conditions as a medical doctor, (but) I can recognize when conditions are serious enough to go to a medical doctor. — Bonnett

Summer swears by it. Treatments have helped her recover from several car accidents, she says. She trusts Bonnett with Charity. The mother is more focused on her two-year-old daughter Sierra, who’s waiting for her turn on the chiropractic bed. Bonnett will see six children under the age of four in just over an hour on this particular Saturday. “When any child comes in, I’m assessing normal range of motion and normal reflex patterns,” Bonnett says. “You will never hear any popping or cracking of joints. The adjustment is done with one finger.” Regina chiropractor Shawn Bachorick estimates about 10 per cent of his patients are children. He says he’s noticed a gradual upswing of young patients over the last few years. Chiropractors are very gentle when treating infants and toddlers, he says. People assume chiropractic pediatrics is dangerous because they make no distinction between a chiropractor adjusting a child and a chi-

ropractor adjusting an adult. “People perceive adjusting a 40-year-old truck driver with chronic low back pain the same as adjusting a little kid with failure to latch (during breastfeeding or who is) having trouble having a bowel movement. You don’t use near as much force,” Bachorick says. Is it safe? Bonnett finds some muscular tension in Sierra’s lower back. The two-year-old has a bruise. Her parents just bought her a trampoline. She warns Summer if Sierra gets a fever or rash, the child should visit her family doctor. “Keep your eye on it,” Bonnett says to Summer as Sierra steps down from the bed. It’s Sierra’s mom’s turn. Summer first lies on her stomach as Bonnett moves her ankles up and down. She breathes deep as Bonnett adjusts her spine. She rotates to her back, then to her side. Continued on Page 8

Chiropractors aren’t doctors of medicine and the fact that they are called doctors is a very loose term. — Charmaine Moldenhauer

Chiropractor Sheila Bonnett works on Summer Kerpan’s daughter Sierra. Bridges photo by DEREK MORTENSEN

Bonnett pushes two hands down hard on Summer’s hip. Summer is relaxed. A number of medical professionals argue evidence is lacking showing the benefits of chiropractic treatment. Others argue the practice is too dangerous. In 1998, 20-year-old Laurie Jean Mathiason died three days after suffering a stroke on a Saskatoon chiropractor’s table. An inquest into the death revealed the adjustment had likely punctured an artery, and the jury called for more research into the relation between neck manipulations and stroke. Several lawsuits against chiropractors followed Mathiason’s death. Patients claimed they suffered strokes triggered by neck manipulations. But, a study published in the peerreviewed Canadian Medical Association Journal in 2001 showed the risk of stroke after a neck adjustment is

low — according to the study, strokes occur in one out of every 5.85 million manipulations. “The relative incident of stroke post-chiropractic care is exactly the same as post-medical care,” Bachorick says. He claims the risk of death is extremely low: “No more than walking down the street and getting struck by lightning.” Bachorick completed his Doctor of Chiropractic certificate in 1998 from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minn. Bonnett completed her certificate in 2008 from Parker College in Texas. The certificate hangs in her office beside a scholastic excellence award she received from the school. She’s now working toward a master’s degree in chiropractic pediatrics from McTimoney College, based in England. She studies via correspondence from her home in Saskatoon.

I do believe that keeping up with the adjustments has given (daughter Abigail’s) body the ability to fully function at its prime, therefore eliminating the need for any medications. She has not had any medications for over a year now. — Kim Siermachesky

The master’s program will not be recognized by the Chiropractors’ Association of Saskatchewan because McTimoney is not accredited by the European Council on Chiropractic Education — though the school is a candidate for accreditation. “I wanted that information and that training. Regardless of whether I get credit for it, I still have the knowledge,” Bonnett says. Bachorick, who is also registered in postgraduate studies, says he expects to earn credit for his master’s degree but noted not many specialty chiropractic programs are recognized in Canada. He’s hopeful that will soon change. His postgraduate studies focus on correcting what he calls abnormal inputs and outputs of the nervous system. For example, he explores how to correct the posture of someone who slouches at a computer all day, or how to improve a patient’s poor movement patterns. He compares the corrections to fixing a golf swing, and notes it’s much easier to fix abnormal movement patterns in children because the movements have yet to become strongly ingrained. “It would be like if you slice the (golf) ball. It’s a lot harder to get rid of that slice after 20 or 30 years than a couple years.” Charmaine Moldenhauer, a nurse at Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, says she would never take her two-year-old son to a chiropractor. “Kids are malleable. Their bones are soft. They are meant to be resilient.” Her son has trouble sleeping and her friends often recommend he get an adjustment, but she fears “the worst of the worst will happen.” She believes many people who receive chiropractic treatment are misled by the term “doctor.” “Chiropractors aren’t doctors of medicine and the fact that they are called doctors is a very loose term.” Bonnett says she doesn’t claim to be a medical doctor. “I don’t treat the same conditions as a medical doctor,” she says, but “I can recognize when conditions are serious enough to go to a medical doctor.”

Treating children is difficult because the patient can’t explain what is bothering him or her. Much of the assessment is observational. Bridges photo by DEREK MORTENSEN Treatment eases the pain

Following her adjustments of Charity, Sierra and Summer, Bonnett dashes over to another room in the clinic. Kim Siermachesky’s 15-month-old daughter Hanna is Bonnett’s next patient. Hanna is crying. She often cries during the first few minutes of an adjustment — though her mother says Bonnett always wins Hanna over near the end of the appointment. Kim’s four-year-old daughter, Abigail, isn’t visiting Bonnett today, but she’s also a consistent patient at the clinic. Abigail was diagnosed with juve-

nile rheumatoid arthritis when she was 13 months old. “Leading up to the diagnosis, she was in obvious discomfort,” Kim says. “Her right knee was completely swollen and permanently bent at a 90 degree angle. She wasn’t walking, crawling, or weight bearing at all.” Chiropractic treatments have greatly improved Abigail’s condition, she says. “I do believe that keeping up with the adjustments has given her body the ability to fully function at its prime, therefore eliminating the need for any medications. She has not had any medications for over a year now.” Prior to Abigail’s diagnosis, the

family first visited a pediatrician, who referred them to a rheumatologist. Between the visit to the pediatrician and the appointment with the specialist, Kim says they visited a fellow chiropractor of Bonnett’s at the Sutherland Clinic. The chiropractor was the first to mention Abigail may have arthritis, Kim says. The rheumatologist confirmed arthritis after conducting an MRI, and officially diagnosed Abigail. When treating patients who are infants and toddlers, Bonnett says she pays close attention to milestones; she makes sure the child is sitting up on their own, standing, crawling and walking at the correct age.

“Say a child isn’t crawling, that can be a large red flag,” she says. “Kim’s daughter wasn’t crawling. We kind of picked up on that here.” Bachorick says, even though parents often fill him in on their child’s medical history, treating children can be difficult because the patient can’t explain what is bothering him or her. “It’s a lot harder to glean information from them directly. A lot of it has to be observational,” he says. “Did they move one arm smoother than the other? Did they not turn their head quite as far one way?” Bonnett says the same thing. “An adult can tell me what’s going on.”

It’s a lot harder to glean information from (children) directly. A lot of it has to be observational. Did they move one arm smoother than the other? Did they not turn their head quite as far one way? — Shawn Bachorick

CHIROPRACTORS TREAT PATIENTS OF ALL AGES Bachorick works predominantly with clients who are on workers’ compensation. “By no means am I predominantly a pediatric practitioner,” he says. Chiropractors in Saskatchewan must be able to work with a wide-array of patients, he says. There isn’t enough demand for pediatric chiropractors in the province. “In Saskatchewan there is not a ton of specialization,” he says. “There are some practices in larger centres in the U.S. that are just strictly pediatric. The demographics don’t support that here too much. You’re by and large much more of a generalist here.” Bonnett agrees. She spent the first few months of her master’s program working in Australia under a chiropractor who only treats children. She loved the experience, but doesn’t see herself becoming a solely pediatric chiropractor. She prefers working with families. “I wouldn’t say that I’d like to only work with infants or toddlers,” she says. “Every person that comes to see me is rewarding — and I love my senior patients just as much. However, my passion is working with families. The energy that families bring with them into a treatment room is unparalleled.”

Historic date for Chileans

Before the 2001 terrorist attacks, Chile experienced its own Sept. 11 tragedy. As many remembered the events of Sept. 11, 2001 in the United States, Chileans were remembering a different 9/11 — Sept. 11, 1973, the day a CIA-based military coup ousted a democratically elected president with a right-wing strongman. Forty years later, Chileans are still divided over the legacy of that day. In Saskatoon, Ricardo Silva waved a Chilean flag at the Rotary Park Peace Pole during a vigil in commemoration of the 40 years since the coup d’etat. The vigil was held in memory of President Salvador Allende Gossens, Victor Jara, Pablo Neruda and all the victims of the brutal repression of the military dictatorship that was in power for 17 years.

m y favourite place

Many benefits to studying outside By Angelina Irinici Kevin Voth, 22 is new to Saskatoon and still exploring the city. After finishing his undergrad at the University of Winnipeg, he moved here at the beginning of May to pursue a master’s degree in biochemistry with a focus on structural biology at the University of Saskatchewan. He says he’s really excited about studying at the U of S for two main reasons: The university is home to the synchrotron, and he’s already been learning a lot from his peers. He also appreciates the “beautiful” campus and has already found himself a favourite spot; leaning up against a tree in the campus’s Bowl. It’s the perfect spot to get some work done while relaxing, too.

Q. What were your first impressions of the U of S campus? A . Beautiful. It’s a beautiful campus. I came from a much smaller campus in downtown Winnipeg and I’m not used to seeing all these buildings that comprise it. (In Winnipeg) it was just one big brick that was the science building. I never went anywhere else, which was nice, but this is really pleasant. Especially with the weather, it’s awesome. Q. What made you decide to sit outside to get some reading done? A . I’m waiting for cells to express protein and I’m going to let them do that overnight. So at this point right now, I’m kind of enjoying the weather and I think ultimately I’m going to find something to do like make antibiotics or something. But, truth be told, I’m just here because it’s nice out. Q. Why do you like working outside in the Bowl? A . Fresh air and the sunlight. I like being in an open area and I feel like I can think and concentrate a little bit better. Also you’re not surrounded by other things, I’ve got

one thing in front of me. If I was sitting at (a table) I’d have a bunch of other stuff relating to what I’m doing and I’d look over and go, “Oh, what’s going on over there again?” I wouldn’t be able to hone my attention on one specific thing.

Q. What do you like about the Bowl

in general? A . I like that it seems to be a hub for people. There’s lots of people around. You feel like you’re a part of a university community and it’s good to be here for that reason.

Q. How has your experience been in Saskatoon so far?

A . It’s been quite nice. I find people here are friendly and welcoming. That was a major concern; I had lived my entire life in Winnipeg and I thought, “How am I going meet people? How’s this going to work out?” And I found that just taking a minor effort to step outside your comfort zone is, by and large, all it

ever really takes and you can meet people and it’s great. That’s been really rewarding thing for me.

Q. Do you plan on hanging out at the Bowl more often now that school has started? A . Yeah, weather permitting, I’ll be outside.

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

What iPhone/iPad/video/computer games do your kids love?

“Talking Teddy on iPad and iPhone. The kids can talk into the phone and the teddy bear repeats it. My three-year-old thinks it hilarious.” — Danice Husarewich “Miss Spider. (It’s) a story, video, game, puzzles and painting all in one awesome app! And you can print out the painting when you are finished. My twoyear-old can play with this for an hour.” — Bonnie Boechler

“Minecraft. All day. All night. Sixteen bit graphics on a high def screen.” — Nicole M, via Twitter “Minecraft obsession at our house!” — Sarah Cooke, via Twitter “Grand theft auto.” — Owen Wade Severight, via Facebook “My 9 year old and sons loves Minecraft. He plays it on the computer, his iPhone and on the X box. He is able to play with his cousins and converse with them and his friends as well. Never thought a game my oldest brother used to play years ago would become as popular with my kids.” — Jamie Dawn Plummer, via Facebook

“The Nintendo DS is the favourite right now, Mario Bros in particular. Unfortunately, since our recent move the computer hasn’t been hooked up yet. YouTube videos are always a hit, so the kids have figured out how to connect through the TV.” — Carla Contreras

“My child is really young for iPhones/iPads so when she will be a bit older I will make sure she is active enough and is doing some kind of sport or anything that will help her to learn new things. I’m not that strict of a mom, but I think kids should be more socially active and not just closed off in their room and playing games.” — Iryna Fedyk

“Clash of Clans (iPad).” — Michelle Hourd

“My four-year-old loves anything by the app maker Toca Boca. They’re really neat apps because it allows kids to do ‘adult things’ like hair dressing, tea party and cooking but also teaches concepts like sorting. They also love apps by Duck Duck Moose that sing kids songs while the kids interact with aspects of the song.” — Michelle Grodecki

“On our Samsung Galaxy, my kids’ favourite games are the various Angry Birds editions, as well as some Disney and general memory games, probably because they are colourful, have fun sounds and characters/themes they recognize. We also use the tablet for colouring as there are times when it is more convenient on the go to pull it out versus crayons and a colouring book. In addition, my son really enjoys Lego games on the PS3, especially when I join him. I enjoy the Lego Harry Potter the most as I find that it assists teaching problem solving to complete levels. On a rainy day or in the cold of winter I will also set up games such as TV Superstars for both my five-year-old and two-yearold as they are played with Move controllers and require a moderate level of physical activity and coordination. At one time a couple years ago I was not so open to my young children playing electronic games, however it is a far different world than I grew up in and kids these days need to understand the technology at a young age or they will end up behind their peers. That being said, I still take every opportunity to have my children simply play and use their imagination, and over the summer there were many days of very limited technology for all of us!” — Twyla Anderson

Senior still gardening in downsized home By Ashley Martin WHO? Karla Gritzfeld WHAT? The front yard garden of her east Regina condo. WHEN? Gritzfeld moved here five years ago from Regina’s Hillsdale neighbourhood, where she lived for 52 years with her husband. She was an avid gardener, with elaborate ponds, flower beds, rock paths and a pergola in her yard. After her husband died in 2006, she downsized and moved from their home. She knew she wanted to keep up her garden, even if on a much smaller scale. HOW? “It was a real adjustment when I came here but I decided I would make the best of it,” said Gritzfeld. Because she was accustomed to having free rein to plant, the condo complex took some getting used to. She had to request permission to plant anything. “It was tough. I broke the rules a few times.” Her small backyard belongs to her 90-pound dog Nelson, so Gritzfeld’s garden is located in the front of her home. She keeps her garden pretty simple, sticking to Zone 2 plants, most of them annuals because they’re more colourful and vibrant in the small space. She also has a fair amount of shade plants, which she says grow beautifully considering the shadow of her attached garage. Decorations accentuate the “ugly” garage wall. There is still a fair amount of grass in the yard, not by choice. “I think grass is a waste of water,” said Gritzfeld. If she had her way, everything would be flowers and rock paths. Gritzfeld is “crazy about” rocks. She had several rock gardens at her old house and brought a few of her favourite stones with her when she moved. She also brought hosta slips from her old garden. bridges Photos by Don Healy

SPACES A third sentimental aspect of the garden is the bench, which her daughters bought in 2006, after Gritzfeld’s husband died. It’s here that she sits in the mornings, enjoying the small water feature on her stoop. It doesn’t compare to the fountains and ponds she once had, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless. WHY? Gardening on any scale is important for Gritzfeld. She says gardening is in her genes. “A lot of seniors live here and they walk by and if I can give them pleasure, really that’s my passion. Gardening is my passion.” She has even inspired some of her neighbours to get growing: “Everybody has a few extra pots sitting around.” In spite of mobility issues due to spinal stenosis, Gritzfeld keeps working at her hobby. “I love it. And I will do it until my condition doesn’t allow it anymore.”

PROJECT 497

Gonzales sets ambitious goal for charity By Ashley Martin Josh Gonzales doesn’t have a terminal illness. Nobody he knows is in dire straits. He just wanted to do something good, for goodness’ sake. “I just really wanted to do something that mattered.” So Gonzales wrote a song, under the banner of Project 497, with the intent of donating all the proceeds. He chose Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), a non-profit organization that helps the world’s poor. As a student working on his honours in psychology at the University of Regina, he liked IPA for two reasons: It promotes education to alleviate poverty and it’s supported by Yale economist and Freakonomics writer Dean Karlan. “I just really believe kids should have a good education. ... You see people who are from impoverished countries and they get one opportunity and they just run with it and just do amazing things, and everybody should have that chance,” said Gonzales. “Sometimes here, we take all these things for granted.” His song, Young As I’ll Ever Be, is catchy and upbeat with lyrics about seizing the day, like, “I’ll do it right the first time ’cause second chances aren’t so easy to get,” and, “Possessions crumble, people fade and what remains are the memories we make.” The longtime musician (piano, guitar and vocals) had a hard time crafting the words though, because of the song’s specific message. “I don’t usually write that way. Trying to make all the lyrics fit into that kind of theme was pretty difficult.” The song came together with the help of his friends Rachel Saunders and Thomas St. Onge. Gonzales got the idea in May and finished recording in August. He did question whether now was the time to tackle the project, with a thesis to complete, but took his own lyrics to heart — why not now? He doesn’t have a grand scheme; his reasons are simple. “I’m not completely happy with how things are and I don’t see why I need a huge excuse to go and do a project like this. I’m always a little bit of a contrarian so I know people are going to doubt that this is even possible and I kind of want to prove them wrong,” said Gonzales, who has set an idealistic goal of 497,000 song downloads by April 2014. You can catch Gonzales during gigs with his band The Daring Squires, made up of friends and fellow Reginans Stephen Folnovic, Brent Gelsinger and Matthew Sauder. Find out more about Project 497 and download Young As I’ll Ever Be at project497.com.

Josh Gonzales is hoping his song will be downloaded 497,000 times. He’ll donate the proceeds to Innovations for Poverty Action. Bridges Photo by Michael Bell

Fall’s best late-blooming colourful perennials By Erl Svendsen The second half of summer this year has been great — warm days and nights, the mosquitoes all but disappeared, and I don’t recall any severe storms, at least in Saskatoon. But with it being dark in the mornings when I get up for work and then dark by 8 p.m., I know fall is just around the corner. That means many of our trees, shrubs and perennials are about to pack it in for the year. If you’ve planned it right, there are a number of perennials that come into their own at this time, adding great hits of colour and texture. If you have some blank or bland spots in the garden and want to add some pizzazz for next year, some late bloomers may still be available from local garden centres. The sooner you plant the better, to give them a chance to root in before the ground freezes. The following are a few to consider: Joe-pye weed (Eutrochium maculatum, syn. Eupatorium maculatum) is just at its peak now. Driving home today, I saw one that was easily 1.8 m tall, sporting several 20 cm wide clouds of mauvy-pink blooms. They prefer growing in full sun with moist soil — even bordering a pond or stream — but will tolerate part shade and drier soils. Plant to the back of the border and consider adding some support so it doesn’t fall over with its top-heavy blooms. An extra bonus is that butterflies are attracted to the flowers. Hardy fall asters (Aster sp.) Some of the few fall perennials, available in pink, red, lavender and blue cultivars, they typically reach 45 to 76 cm tall and have dusty dark green leaves. Plant in a location with full sun and well-drained soil. There are several cultivars to choose from. Look for early blooming and resistance to powdery mildew. In a perennial trial across the prairies co-ordinated by the Saskatchewan

One of columnist Erl Svendsen’s favourite fall blooming perennials, Joe Pye Weed. PHOTO COURTESY LIZ WEST

Perennial Society, the following performed well in all locations: Alert, Little Pink Beauty and Purple Dome. Of these, only Purple Dome escaped powdery mildew at all locations over the three-year evaluation. Stonecrop or sedum (Sedum sp.) Low growing succulents — although a few reach as high as 30 cm — these perennials are drought and heat tolerant once established. Plant in full sun and well drained soil. Blooming time of this group is dependent on species and cultivar. However, Autumn Joy is aptly named, blooming in shades of coppery-red and pink in late August/early September. Autumn Joy is also one of the taller types, but still one to plant near paths and the border’s edge. There are also similar fall-blooming types

with coloured (red, maroon) or variegated (white and green) leaves to add an extra dimension throughout the year. Helenium (Helenium autumnale; aka Helen’s flower, false sunflower, sneezeweed) This plant produces masses of daisy-like flowers in shades of yellow, gold, orange, bronze and maroon with raised, dark centres. In full sun, helenium can reach up to .3m in height. For best results, plant in well-drained soil but mulch well to retain even soil moisture. Like Joe Pye Weed, this one may need support but new cultivars tend to be sturdier. This is another perennial that attracts butterflies.

Josephine Mensah: Looking stylish on a budget By Angelina Irinici Every piece of Josephine Mensah’s outfit has a story; it all came together by chance, and for a very reasonable price. Most pieces of the outfit were purchased for under $10. “Price dictates what I buy, I will admit that. But, sometimes if I like it so much or it’s such a unique piece, I’m willing to splurge a little bit,” she explains. A few years ago she spotted the dress, which was on sale for around $10, while waiting for a friend at the mall. She was instantly drawn to the colour, style and the fit. The earrings — which cost just a few dollars — jumped out at her in a packed thrift store in Montreal. She loved them but didn’t wear them at first because she didn’t think she had anything they’d match. “But then I thought, ‘Hey, that dress might be an OK match.’ It was an exact match. I thought, ‘What are the chances? ” she says. “It’s like style serendipity!” The shoes, sunglasses and watch were icing on the cake. Mensah, who works at the YWCA, went to the organization’s Opportunity Shop, which is full of donated clothing during a lunch break and found the shoes for around $5. She debuted them for the Bridges fashion shoot. She had been searching for cat eye sunglasses and found the perfect pair while travelling in Montreal for $10. Also on the Montreal trip, she purchased the Anne Klein watch. She spotted it first in the Toronto airport while catching a connecting flight to Montreal. Mensah decided she’d buy the watch on the way home, but when she saw it in a department store in Montreal, she knew it was meant to be. Mensah is originally from Ghana, but grew up in Regina, then moved around before settling in Saskatoon. She travels often and likes to shop while in different cities to bring back momentous of her experiences. “The places I like to shop are not always the touristy places but more where the locals go,” she explains of a recent trip to Yellowknife where she bought a few pieces at a vintage store. The 25-year-old recently started a lifestyle blog called Style by Lady J. It explores fashion, food, beauty and self-esteem. She says that it was important to include a section called ‘inner beauty’ to balance the style and fashion aspects of her blog. “(The section) is about body image and things like that, and celebrating different sizes as well,” she explains. “Style is not onedimensional, it’s multi-dimensional and one person can have so many different styles.” Her love of fashion inspired the blog and she views style as something more than just everyday clothing. “Lots of people think, ‘I have to wear clothes to function, I just have to get dressed in the morning.’ But I think style is really an extension of personality and it shows the little things that I care about.” She encourages people to “wear exactly what you want to wear.” Mensah used to worry that she was overdressed for outings. She decided instead of feeling guilty about what she’s wearing, she would feel happy because that’s when she feels the best. She says her budget outfit she wore for this shoot makes her feel colourful and feminine. “That feeling is a lot stronger than any price point,” Mensah says. To check out Mensah’s blog go to: www.stylebyladyj.blogspot.ca.

Saskatchewan’s Crown corporations In almost every provincial election in the last 50 years, Crown corporations have been a major political issue. Even a hint of the privatization of any of the larger Crowns brings on a major counter attack such as extolling the virtues of “Saskatchewan’s family of Crown corporations.” My book on Saskatchewan’s Crown corporations traces the history of the establishment of Crowns in the province — from the establishment of a hail insurance Crown even before Saskatchewan became a province to the recent partial privatization of the Saskatchewan Information Corporation. Many of the early economic Crown corporations that were established did not do well and many were money-losing ventures. In later years, government investments in the resource industries such as forest products, uranium, oil and gas and potash proved successful, par-

ticularly when the government partnered with the private sector. By and large most of the Crowns were established out of economic necessity. In the 1940s immediately after the Second World War the province had a large debt following the depression. The agriculture sector was depressed. Boris Kishchuk Veterans were returning home looking for employment and the Federal government’s National Policy of high tariff rates on agriculture and other equipment restricted economic development in the

province. The only major source of capital was the borrowing power of the provincial government. In the book I traced the approaches and philosophies of Saskatchewan’s premiers with respect to Crown corporations. Some of the results were predictable, but others proved to be a surprise. During my term as chair of the Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel, I had the opportunity to speak to a cross section of people across the province with respect to the operations of Saskatchewan’s Crown corporations. Again, many of the comments I received were unexpected. The book also looks at the sometime detrimental relationship between the government and the Crowns. The book can be purchased in Saskatoon at McNally Robinson and Indigo. In Regina it is available at Chapters. The book sells for $19.95.

Celebrating the harvest in Saskatchewan By Jenn Sharp Yes, the leaves are turning colour and the air is crisp in the morning. As much as I love summer, all good things come to an end. Welcome back fall. We missed you (sort of). If you grew up on the farm, you probably love fall. It’s hard to describe the excitement of getting another year’s crop off. Grain dust tinges the sunset, while the hum of combines and rumble of grain trucks provide the soundtrack. Gardeners work overtime, harvesting, then canning the year’s produce. For a province with such strong agricultural ties, harvest is always a special time. Rather than bemoaning the end of summer, let’s celebrate fall. In Saskatoon, the Friends of the Forestry Farm House (FFFH) are hosting their annual Harvest Supper on Sept. 23. The supper is held in the Superintendent’s Residence on the Forestry Farm site. It’s the site’s 100th anniversary this year. The three-course meal, featuring hardy Saskatchewan fare, is all prepared and served by members of FFFH in the historical red brick house. Guests can enjoy a harvest vegetable soup, followed by roast turkey with stuffing, gravy, salads and vegetables, followed by a pumpkin and apple dessert with ginger whipped cream. FFFH is committed to preserving and restoring the Superintendent’s Residence, and using it to tell the story of the Sutherland Forest Nursery Station, which distributed over 1.4 million trees for shelterbelts and yards in Saskatchewan. Funds raised from the dinner will go toward a book the group is producing about the site’s history. The Regina Farmers’ Market has organized a fabulous event called Market Under the Stars on Sept. 26. A previous event was held in City Square Plaza on Aug. 29. The evening festivities included salsa dancing, a yoga party, a celebrity pie eating competition, wine tasting from Liv-

eople enjoyed a variety of activitie, shopped and sampled eats from Regina's food trucks at the Market Under the Stars event in August. The next event will be held Sept. 26 in City Square Plaza in Regina. BRIDGES PHOTO BY TROY FLEECE

ing Sky Winery and liquor tasting from Last Mountain Distillery. The food aspect is what draws hundreds of people to Market Under the Stars. Several Regina restaurants and food trucks set up at the event to provide tastings featuring locally sourced food available to the public and for a taste judging contest. In addition, many of the market vendors will provide a vibrant evening shopping atmosphere. In 2010, the Regina Farmers’ Mar-

ket was named one of the best markets in the country by the Canadian Tourism Commission. Since that time, it’s only got better. During a recent Wednesday market day, I was impressed by the vendors’ diverse offerings. An ample supply of ethnic food stalls were a treat as well. Whether you’re from the farm or not, September is the best time to visit your local farmers’ market and take home your piece of the 2013 harvest. jksharp@thestarphoenix.com/@JennKSharp

Aya C h a r m i n g

Enjoy a palate awakening with a Portueguse Aya By James Romanow One of the many things people have a hard time understanding is that taste is just an advanced sense of touch. Much of what we “taste” is a sensation in the mouth that doesn’t get taste buds firing. Acidity and tannin are both stand out examples of what I’m talking about. The reason I’ve been thinking about this is because I picked up a bottle of Portuguese wine that has been driving me nuts. So nuts, I bought about three bottles before I was satisfied that I wasn’t crazy. I may well be crazy but in this particular case I was not delusional, or at least no more delusional than normal. I love Portuguese wines. They make a zillion red styles including some lighter bodied wines that make for great every day drinking. Aya falls into this class, as you’d expect from the quite pretty packaging. The first sip is a pleasant, light red with … is that carbonation? A quick examination of the glass shows no bubbles. But the wine “tastes” carbonated. How can that be? Well, three bottles later, I worked out that it was a sensation in the roof of my mouth, a sort of prickling, that I associate with soda water, champagne, etc. Why this particular sensation is generated is a mystery to me. The tannins are only discoverable by eating

something greasy with it. There is no apparent acidity on the sides of the tongue. This is a tremendously easy drinking wine that makes your palate wake up. For a change, the name of the wine delivers exactly as promised. I haven’t enjoyed a glass of wine this much since my first good Chianti.

ASK ELLIE

Family needs to find ways time to get away from in-laws Q. My husband and I are working professionals with good jobs. We have a daughter, three, with whom I stayed home for the first year. Thereafter, I returned to work, and his parents moved in with us to help out with her, for which I’ll be eternally grateful. I work nine months out of the year, and am off for three months, during which his parents go back to their home and their lives (out of town) if, and when, they want. Lately, my husband’s been demanding that we do EVERYTHING, as a five-some. We seem to never have family time, just the three of us. When I suggest this to him, he acts insulted and unreasonable, claiming that his parents are not my employees. I just want a picnic with my daughter and husband, or a day-trip or two. My in-laws are home 24/7; I never get any privacy there, either. It’s really wearing me down, too much together time for me. Should I just enroll my daughter

Ask Ellie

in full-time daycare and be done with it? Unreasonable? A. If all you really want is some occasional family time, the ways to find it are not that elusive. Give your in-laws a gift of appreciation and send them to a concert, movie, or out for a special lunch, i.e. places that aren’t naturally suited to your young child. That would leave you three able to go on a picnic, for starters. The fact you’ve gone to the more extreme solution of putting her in day-care is more about wanting them out of the house completely. That’s why your husband’s overreacting… it’s an unexpressed power

struggle between you, rather than a realistic look at the facts: 1) His parents made sacrifices to help you 2) Things change as children grow, and as parents have different options. But above all, any change has to be handled very diplomatically and with great sensitivity. Start with showing that to your husband, and talking about what’s best for you all.

Q. Recently, I hosted a friend’s baby shower, for her list of friends. I baked, cooked (including special diets), and cleaned. I planned activities, each relating to the shower’s theme (my friend was specific about what she wanted). Everything went about as badly as it could have. Her friends didn’t seem to be into the idea of a shower. They showed up early (I was still in prep mode), and complained about the drive (outside the city). They didn’t eat the food. They didn’t enjoy the games.

They only seemed to like the gift opening. Before the last activity, one guest declared the party over. I’m trying hard to get past this and assure myself I did everything I could to make it a fun day. My friend never thanked me for hosting. Should I bring it up with her? Every other party I’ve ever hosted has been a lot of fun. Dull Party A. Don’t beat yourself up… they were rude, felt no responsibility to show appreciation for all your very well meaning efforts. Unfortunately, you tried too hard, for the wrong occasion — not your friends, not your own theme. Feeling depressed over superficial people and a thankless friend is a waste of time. Use your considerable energy to pull yourself out of it. Do several nice things for yourself instead — new hairdo, new shoes… whatever lifts your spirits to get back to the competent and generous person you are. Your friend’s either too shallow to

feel badly, or she’ll be defensive.

Q. I’ve lost three best friends within three months. I feel like I’m not good enough for anyone, not special, that life is just pain and not worth living. I started doing things to find out what was wrong with me and could help explain why I’m not happy with myself. I told my VERY best friend that I wanted to change, but she said I shouldn’t. But I need more helpful, instructive advice. Sad and Confused A. Life IS worth living, way beyond those three people, who may not have been the right “fit” for you because of things lacking in them, not you. But when you feel that low and doubt yourself, call your local distress line. Or, if you’re a teenager, call Kids Help Phone (for teenagers too, 1-800-668-6868 in Canada, or go online for other countries.) Also, ask where/how to get affordable or free counselling, e.g. through a local Y’s youth program.
