Tia Zelinski:

Material matters most for designer By Ashley Martin Often, the fabric of Tia Zelinski’s designs is sparked by just that: fabric. The Regina fashion designer gains ideas from textiles, rather than applying cloth to a preordained pattern. “I like to shop for my fabric beforehand and I just envision things from there. It’s kind of a tangible thing; I need to see the fabrics and feel them and it all comes to play,” said Zelinski. Family trips to California are a great chance to shop at her favourite supplier, Mood Designer Fabrics in L.A. “It’s like a warehouse. Anything you could possibly imagine. Leather, furs, everything. It’s cool. A little overwhelming but you have to go in knowing what you’re looking for.” Zelinski’s interest in clothing and styling stems from childhood, when her mom taught her to sew from patterns and make dresses for school dances. In spite of this interest, Zelinski was reluctant to pursue her interest in fashion. “I waited until I was 25 to go to school, to kind of convince myself that I could make a career out of this,” said Zelinski, who grew up in Regina and graduated from Lethbridge College in 2010. “It wasn’t that I didn’t know all along that I wanted to be in fashion, it was just that we didn’t really have a thriving fashion community.” Saskatchewan Fashion Week is changing all that. “It’s really opened a lot of doors and I think that the community’s getting bigger because so many people are realizing that they weren’t the only one interested in it. “Dean Renwick, for instance, he’s been doing fashion here forever but I think we needed just something loud and in your face like Sask. Fashion Week for everyone to make contacts and to realize, ‘Oh, there’s other people that are interested in the same things I am,’” said Zelinski. “Maybe one day we’ll have some sort of school here where people won’t have to leave to go to school.” Zelinski is helping style and co-ordinate backstage during the fashion shows at SFW in Regina this weekend. She’s also showing her second-ever collection after getting positive feedback last year. “When you go into something like design, it makes you feel really vulnerable. You’re putting something out there that was created in your mind and it’s just something really special and you’re protective of it, so to get that great feedback just gives you the confidence to know that you’re in the industry you should be.” Aside from the crux of fabric, Zelinski draws inspiration from street style, her friends, magazines and blogs. But when it comes to her own style of dress, “I really just like a nice pair of jeans and a top ... something that feels good and something I feel comfortable in.”

We’d all go and I’d be the one without my hair done because I love making people feel beautiful — Candyce Fiessel

candyce fiessel

Spreading joy is Fiessel’s priority By Ashley Martin Sun Bright Saw, a teenager originally from Thailand, had her own fairy godmother to help her get ready for her first Grade 9 dance. It was Candyce Fiessel, the girl’s Big Sister. High school can be intimidating for any teenager — even scarier if you’re new to a country and barely speak the language. But Saw was in good hands. Fiessel has a gift for making people look good and feel confident, dating back to her own high school days when she’d do all her friends’ hair before dances. “We’d all go and I’d be the one without my hair done because I love making people feel beautiful,” said Fiessel. She lent the 13-year-old Saw a red halter-style dress, reminiscent of something Marilyn Monroe would wear. She also coiffed her an updo with strands of curls hanging down. “When she was done I was looking at myself in the mirror screaming. She made me feel like a princess,” recalled Saw, who’s now 18 and a student at Richards Beauty College. Fiessel learned about the Big Sisters program after being awarded the YWCA Young Women of Distinction Award in 2007, recognition for being a successful young entrepreneur at her salon, Shear Escape Salon & Spa. Boosting people’s self esteem is what drew Fiessel to the hair industry. “To see others, how you light them up and make them feel about themselves, they walk different, they talk different, they’re more excited, they’re more expressive of who they are because they feel good about themselves. I think it started from that, nurturing that feeling,” she said. She launched Shear Escape eight years ago, just a 21-year-old with a dream. After graduating from Winston Knoll Collegiate, she attended Richards Beauty College and worked

at her uncle Dan Pritchard’s salon, but wasn’t sure if she was following the right path. She took some university classes, but “my heart wasn’t in it.” A 10-week Dale Carnegie course helped her find her vision: to open a salon of her own. “Literally six weeks later we opened the doors. It was just the tumbling effect, like once you believe and your vision is that strong, you just go for it and I didn’t hold back whatsoever.”

Learning to become a boss and owner was challenging, but Fiessel assembled a team she could count on. Fourteen people work with her today. “I really feel like part of success is being surrounded by people that support you and encourage you along the way,” she said. One of those people is Sherylee Vervalcke, who joined Shear Escape before it opened. She’s now a shareholder in the salon. “I was the first person she inter-

viewed. It was a three-hour supper at Earls and there was kind of no turning back from there,” said Vervalcke. “She’s very good at setting goals and motivating people and growing people and that’s why I enjoy working with her.” Another great support is Fiessel’s mom, Sandy Bakke, who does books and payroll for Shear Escape. “She’s always given me my strength,” said Fiessel, tearing up a little.

Their family is very close. Dad Garth Bakke is a motivator — “he pushes you beyond where you think you can go and is so encouraging.” Older brother Chad shares Fiessel’s penchant for big dreams, while she can let her hair down with younger sister Colleen. Then there’s her husband Clint. The two were married in November. Both are entrepreneurs — Clint runs Southern Coring and Cutting.


I’m looking forward to seeing the talent in the province ... and our ability to host an event like this. — Barb Gartner

“We’ve been able to support each other with our crazy schedules. Two entrepreneurs let alone one, it’s interesting around the home but we totally know how to make it work,” said Fiessel. Having so much support was pivotal just eight months after Fiessel opened her salon. She encountered an unexpected health issue — one she’d rather not discuss on the record — and spent months in rehab learning to function again. That experience taught her compassion and a new appreciation for life. “I operate my business completely differently. I think I would have been swallowed up by my business. The first eight months I worked open to close tirelessly. Now I’m four days a week and I focus on a work-life balance.” It also reaffirmed her desire to make her salon a comfortable, welcoming environment for people who’ve experienced trauma, health issues or struggles with self confidence. “It’s about paying it forward. There’s been a lot of people that have given and supported me through my own experiences and traumas and health issues that I think it’s just so important to reach out and share that experience back.” It’s why she launched Girl Space, in partnership with the YWCA, in 2011 — an eight-month program to inspire confidence in young women — and spearheaded a Hospitals of Regina Foundation fundraiser to celebrate Shear Escape’s fifth anniversary, raising $6,000 for Wascana Rehabilitation Centre. “We’ve raised a lot of money over the last eight years for different charities and that’s when she kind of shines, when she’s really at her best and I think just seeing her in those moments, that’s when she is who she really is,” said Vervalcke. ■

In 2011, Fiessel joined forces with her cousin, stylist and salon owner Chris Pritchard, and Coda Clothing buyer Chelsea O’Connell to begin organizing the first ever Saskatchewan Fashion Week. Last year’s inaugural event was a smash. Fiessel wasn’t surprised. “There was no doubt in my mind that we were going to make this fly. A

l e a d e r p o st.co m /q c

complete sellout, that was absolutely exciting. I believe that it shows how much people want and need this type of industry to grow and also shows that we have talent here,” she said. The second annual event takes place this weekend on the City Square Plaza in downtown Regina. As corporate relations director of the festival, Fiessel’s skill set is growing, learning about marketing, organizing and corporate liaising. “It’s like taking your bachelor of everything.” For Fiessel, SFW is about growing a network to facilitate collaboration and put Saskatchewan fashion on the larger industry radar. “Not as this salon, that salon, this photography studio, that makeup artist. No, we’re working together as Saskatchewan Fashion Week,” she said. “Now people come to our province, they look up Sask. Fashion Week, they find all the motivated individuals in our industry.” That includes Barb Gartner, a salon owner and Redken representative from Saskatoon, who’s attending SFW for the first time. Redken is sponsoring SFW by providing stylists and hair products. “I’m looking forward to seeing the talent in the province ... and our ability to host an event like this,” said Gartner, who met Fiessel a couple of years ago through supplying Shear Escape with Redken products. “The lady is super-talented, superorganized and my hat’s off to her,” said Gartner. “I’ve never worked an event like this … I get to learn from Candyce.” After SFW is over, Fiessel is planning a vacation with her husband. Since both are busy, they try to get away every few months for some quality time. “I think without that light at the end of the tunnel, if it was consistency for 12 months a year, it’s not doable. No one wants to see a burnt-out entrepreneur,” said Fiessel. Their next big break is for her 30th birthday in August; “glamping” (glamorous camping) is the tentative plan. Though she enjoys a holiday, stress is not something Fiessel avoids. Her favourite saying is “a diamond is really a lump of coal under extreme pressure.” “There’s a lot of pressure and stress along the road of growing as a person,” she said.

I think she really is out to grow people and help her community and to make our industry better. That’s why she’s so successful, because it’s definitely from her heart, not her head. — Sherylee Vervalcke

Fiessel sees “endless opportunities” in her field. Constantly growing and learning is her passion. She dreams of eventually having an education facility of her own. Shear Escape uses the level system, which means employees can work their way to becoming shareholders in the business. Fiessel would like to open more salons this way, helping her colleagues become owners without them having to start from scratch. And if the opportunity arose, she’d like to knock out a wall and expand Shear Escape. “I think that she’s definitely someone to watch,” said Vervalcke of her colleague. “She does a lot of behindthe-scenes things, she has her hand in a lot of different things and her heart is very true. “Sometimes in the business world people think it’s for personal gain but … I think she really is out to grow people and help her community and to make our industry better. That’s why she’s so successful, because it’s definitely from her heart, not her head.” No matter what happens, Fiessel wants to stay behind the chair. She loves doing hair — creating custom looks for people is at the top of her list, while most referrals are because she has naturally curly hair. More than that, she loves interacting with clients. “On a daily basis I get to hear the stories of lives and that is the absolute fun part of my job. Not only do I get to make people feel good about themselves, but I get to be inspired by their stories every day, their bumps in the road, even just their travels,” she said. Gartner says Fiessel is a credit to their industry. “It’s very, very nice to see that kind of talent, skill-wise but also professionally, just to raise the bar for the industry,” said Gartner. But to Saw, what matters most is that Fiessel is such a great big sister. “She just cares so much about everyone else. … She gave me so much self esteem and she makes me feel so good about myself all the time,” said Saw. “She just makes me so much stronger. “We’re going to still be friends for the rest of my life.”

CITY News # ZOMBIE PREP CAMP

Zombies on the radar at long weekend camp By Ashley Martin It sounds like the beginning of a horror film. A bunch of people head to a scenic lakeside camp for the long weekend. But between campfires and canoe races, the campers must fend off the zombies that lurk around every turn. So goes Zombie Prep Camp, taking place at Katepwa Lake over the May long weekend. Mathew Drackett. Jonathan Michell and Justin Folk are the creators of the camp, a mashup of fun, fitness and zombies. “This is kind of like camp for kids, for adults. We’re using the zombie pop culture to hide a legitimate health and fitness camp,” said Drackett. Campers will learn from experts about emergency first aid, archery, fire-starting, shelter-making, axethrowing, spear-making and zombitsu — a self-defence combining wrestling and krav maga that’s useful in the real world. Through all of the activities, meals and down time, campers must evade the slow-moving zombies creeping around the camp. “Everybody is at risk. If they’re not completely aware of their surroundings, they might turn around and find a zombie three inches away from their face,” said Michell. Any moment of peace could bring consequences, Michell added: “You’re Facebooking your buddy, ‘Yeah man I’m awesome at archery,’ and there’s a zombie right there when you look up.” The one place a person is safe is in their bed at night. That said, as soon as they leave their tent or cabin, they become a target. If a zombie touches them, their team lose points, which are traded in for prizes at the end of the weekend. Unlike in a real zombie apocalypse, there is no biting at Zombie Prep Camp. Likewise, there is no killing the zombies at the camp: They’re volunteers done up by makeup artist

Mathew Drackett, Jonathan Michell, and Justin Folk (front, from left) are attacked by “zombies” Jeremiah Gervais, Ryan Holota and Nicholas Holota, while Kelsey Pippin looks scared in the background. Folk, Michell and Drackett are the co-founders of Zombie Prep Camp.  QC Photo by Michael Bell

Kelsey Pippin. Though there are plenty of physical challenges at Zombie Prep Camp, not everything requires strength. Cassie Ozog, who wrote her master’s thesis on zombie films, will present several courses about how to cope when society and government collapse. A zombie apocalypse is no different than a natural disaster or pandemic when it comes to being prepared, said Ozog. “It’s really about being aware, being prepared and being safe,” she

said. “Brains are only half of it; brawn is only half of it. You’ve got to be fit and ready and prepared both mentally and physically.” The weekend culminates in a zombie relay, which incorporates everything campers learned over the weekend. “You’re going to have to show that you can actually pull this off in the heat of the moment when you’re super tired and super rushed and scared out of your pants,” said Michell. Though the three co-ordinators are

having fun including pop culture in their camp, they agree that zombies are a metaphor for something far more real. “Zombies don’t necessarily mean bloodsucking, flesh-eating people. This camp is about waking up to physicality, waking up to getting off the couch and getting out of the video game daze, getting out of the television daze. Get up and do something,” said Folk. Through their company, Merry Men Productions, they hope to grow

the camp to an annual and provincewide event, as well as host other themed events on a monthly basis. Zombie Prep Camp starts the evening of Friday, May 17 and runs until Monday morning, May 20. It takes place at an established camp at Katepwa Lake (exact location is a secret for now). Because it’s a survival camp, they are collecting donations for the Regina Food Bank.

Each week QC gathers advice from parents to share with other moms and dads. This week we asked:

When you became a mother, did your relationship with your own mother change? “Hugely. I had utter respect for the selflessness and willingness to do anything for us. I saw life from her eyes for the very first time and I felt so inferior.” — Tracey Grand’Maison

“I think we became even closer after I had my kids. As they grow and become more of a challenge I have even MORE respect for how mom handled me as a child, I occasionally still apologize to her for my less than desirable behaviour growing up!” — Terri Leniuk “Yes, it made me respect her more because of the wisdom she gave me as a mother, but on the same token it made me resent her because she can have a hard time letting me do my own ‘mom thing’.” — Pamela Marie “My relationship with my mother changed drastically once I became a mother. I gained a new understanding and appreciation for all the things she did for me when I was growing up. I find myself calling her more often ‘just to talk’.” — Michelle Grodecki “Absolutely! I was always pretty hard on her, but when I had my daughters I realized she was doing the best she could. Moms are just people. I didn’t suddenly have all the answers when I became a mom and it became clear I shouldn’t expect that my mom did either!” — Risa Payant “My respect for my mother grew exponentially after having my first and each one of my children. Now that we have three daughters, I am simply in awe at the patience and love she gave to me and my seven siblings. She was a model of moral character for me, and I am thankful she is here in the city to pass on those key values to my girls.” — Angela Wells “I don’t think our relationship changed but I did call her more for advice and now can understand her point of view a little more. I appreciate the fact that she is always willing to help out. She is an awesome grandma and we are really lucky.” — Nikki Melnyk “Absolutely — my appreciation and understanding grew big time!” — Lori Booth “Yes, it totally did. I found that my relationship with my mom already changed once I got married. I thought of my mom as more of a friend than a mom. Then, when I had my first daughter,

I respected and appreciated my mom so much more. She was such a help during the first month and became a regular fixture in my house and still is. I just have so much more respect for her and realize that even though I didn’t always agree with her choices growing up — It ALL MAKES SENSE TO ME NOW!” — Chera Miller “Even when you become pregnant your relationship changes with your mother. I feel very special to share this experience with her. She has been by my side the whole time (through) doctors’ appointments and all!” — Jill Gordon “That was so long ago! I was very young when I became a mother (16) so I depended on my mom for a lot of help and advice. I don’t really remember the relationship changing much, other than bringing us closer together.” — Carla Contreras “Not much. Only as your kids grow up you understand them better — their pain, their love, their affection — as you co-relate their (emotions) with yours.” — Usha Agarwal “My relationship with my mother didn’t really change but I understand now what she had to go through with me, as I wasn’t a quiet one, more like a tomboy. I should have listened to her when she was trying to give me some advice as she went through the same things that I did. Most of the time kids, especially teenagers, think that they know more than their parents, but in the end parents were right. I hope that one day I will become as great a mom as my mom is. She is a perfect mother and I love her very much.” — Iryna Fedyk

B e y e r s k l o o f P i n o ta g e D r y R o s é

Pinotage rosé suits drinkers of all tastes By James Romanow If Gewurztraminer is the drinking equivalent to heavy metal, then rosé suffers the equivalent stigma of girlie pop. Serious people drink red, wear black, frown at sequins, and think the colour pink may indicate a moral failing. Rosé is not worthy of their notice. Rosé has been made forever for the good reason that not every meal or every occasion demands the brooding presence of a Gorecki symphony. There are all sorts of times and places when something a bit lighter is every bit as enjoyable, and often considerably more useful. The biggest reason to drink more rosé, especially in summer when you probably wouldn’t mind something cooler with dinner (rosé is typically served chilled) is that it is the most food friendly of all wines. It can get along with chicken or fish, but won’t be intimidated by a steak. Pinotage, a hybrid of Pinot Noir and Cinsault, is much loved in South Africa. Beyerskloof, a vintner of repute has their pinotage rosé listed here. Pinotage tends to the chocolate/coffee end of the flavour spectrum with less berry fruit and the strawberry nose. In many ways this makes it a perfect rosé, as chilled wine tends not to have much of a bouquet anyway, and the earthy character of the wine makes it

NEW ARRIVALS DAILY UP TO a real drinkers’ wine. Even diehard red guys should be able to enjoy a glass. If you’re looking for the one drink does all for the cottage or the deck I’d recommend this one. So go for it; try a glass. You won’t be disappointed. And if you do I promise I’ll never tell your hockey team about your habit of humming along to Sk8rBoi. I swear. Beyerskloof Pinotage Dry Rosé, South Africa, 2010. $15.24 **** More wines on Twitter @drbooze.

M Y FAV O U R I T E P L A C E

The best place to study by sunlight By Andrew Matte Visiting all the nooks and crannies at the University of Regina campus was first on the list for Katelyn Neufeld, who began studying arts and sciences in the fall. The 20-yearold wanted to get a lay of the land but she also sought out acceptable places to study. She discovered her favourite spot in Innovation Place, where lounge chairs and massive windows help create her ideal study environment. There’s also a funky nook.

Q: How did you discover this place? A: Last fall, I learned that I had this time between my classes. So in my first couple of days, I didn’t have anything to do. So I decided I’d walk around campus and get a feel for things so I wouldn’t get lost. Q: So what attracted you to this area? A: It’s really bright in there. There are many bright windows and they are very tall. You can actually see the levels of the stories above if you look up to the tops of the windows. It’s really pretty. There are good study places up there too, but they’re hard to get. Q: Is a window with a view distracting? A: Fall is my favourite season and I like to be outside a lot of the time. But it’s usually too cold or I need a plug-in for my computer. So I found this little place where I can see out the window where the leaves are changing and I can plug in my computer. Q: Does the sunlight ever get to be too much? A: I’m a real outdoor person and I’m a real sunshine person. When the sun is shining, I’m pretty much golden. If I can’t be outside for whatever reason, this is the best spot. There are other places in the building where the sun comes in too.

Q: Is it noisy? A: It’s really quiet there because it’s behind the theatre and it’s not in the area where everybody walks. You see the odd person who comes to see if the spot’s available, but other than that, you don’t get interrupted. Q: What else do you like about it? A: In the concrete on the floor and on the wall are words, phrases, formulas and theories that professors

love. Some of them are theories I’ve never heard or math equations that I don’t understand. Some of them really get me thinking.

Q: Is there competition among students for these spots? A: There are little chairs and tables that are right against the windows and you can see out onto the campus green, so it’s not always empty because it’s quiet and it’s sunny. The heat of the sun is the best

thing in the world.

Q: When do you usually visit? A: Usually, I go there between classes, especially if I have a long time between classes. So I’m usually there on my computer. It has to be something you can do on the computer or read, because you’d be really hunched over if you had to write anything. Q: What did you do when you were there last?

A: Last time I was there, I was studying with a friend and we got on our computers and we went through the study guide. And we asked each other questions. Q: Is the place comfortable enough for a nap? A: They are little arm chairs. They aren’t soft but they’re smaller and perfect to crawl into. If you went there to sleep, you could probably manage it.

BRAIN ON FIRE: MY MONTH OF MADNESS

Well-crafted memoir delves into medical mystery By Ashley Martin and Jenn Sharp

displaying physical symptoms, doctors were quick to diagnose her with a mental illness. They thought she might have bipolar disorder or psychosis. One neurologist thought her problem was because of alcohol withdrawal, even after Cahalan told him she didn’t drink very much. In a chapter entitled “The Exorcist,” Cahalan poses the question, “How many people currently are in psychiatric wards and nursing homes denied the relatively simple cure of steroids, plasma exchange, IVIG treatment, and, in the worst cases, more intense immunotherapy or chemotherapy?” Dr. Najjar is researching whether certain mental illnesses like schizophrenia are actually caused by brain inflammation. Her entire story made me thankful that everyone close to me is healthy. It also made me sad for all those people who wouldn’t receive a diagnosis because of financial reasons — her treatment cost $1 million and was mostly covered by insurance. In Canada, though we have universal health care, I’d be concerned about wait times, access and getting a proper diagnosis. Cahalan’s story also made me marvel at her skills as a journalist. A memoir is one thing — retelling the events as you remember them — but she doesn’t remember anything that happened to her during her month in the hospital. She relied on her own medical records and interviews with her parents, step-parents, boyfriend, friends, co-workers and doctors, to piece together a story. In reading this book, I often wondered how her boyfriend Stephen must have felt. He was there each day for her, even though they hadn’t been dating long. Did you have questions about any of the peripheral characters?

New York Post reporter Susannah Cahalan lost her mind in 2009. At least, that’s what it seemed was happening: The 24-year-old started having hallucinations, mood swings and violent outbursts. After her second seizure, she was admitted to the hospital. When she began to physically deteriorate, so began a Dr. House-like medical investigation into what might be wrong with her. Eventually she was diagnosed with antiNMDA-receptor encephalitis, an auto-immune disease causing brain inflammation. If it’s not caught in time, it can be deadly. Cahalan made a full recovery and wrote about her experience, which required a lot of research: She didn’t remember anything that happened in the hospital. ASHLEY MARTIN: Brain on Fire is an incredible story for many reasons. What aspect of the story stands out for you? JENN SHARP: It is an incredible story — from her complete psychosis to her recovery where she didn’t feel like she belonged in her own body. It’s hard to imagine what that must have been like but Cahalan does an excellent job. For me, Brain on Fire’s pivotal moment is when Dr. Najjar has finally figured out what’s wrong with her. To explain her rare disease, he put it as simply as possible: “Her brain is on fire. Her brain is under attack by her own body.” It’s only been in the last few years that the medical community understands more about auto-immune-NMDA-receptor encephalitis. The causes and prevention are still unknown. I found it terrifying that Cahalan did nothing out of the ordinary yet contracted this disease which made her completely manic and may have killed her if not for Dr. Najjar. And 20 per cent of people recovered from the disease relapse. Did her story make you second guess or better appreciate your own sanity? AM: This book definitely made me put my own health into perspective. Some of the things Cahalan went through sounded horrific — even in the early days, when her illness had just begun. She wanted to have her apartment fumigated because she was convinced she had bedbugs. She couldn’t write

anymore; she couldn’t even string together an interview. She burst into tears in front of her entire workplace, then had a laughing

fit minutes later. She heard voices of family members insulting her. Even after she started having seizures and

JS: Stephen almost seemed too good to be true. Do men like this really exist? I’m joking (halfjoking). He was amazing, remaining by her side throughout the hardest of times. What must it have been like for him to witness her paranoia, seizures, zombielike movements and vacant stares? He visited her every day in the hospital and never wavered. I also wondered about Cahalan’s mother, who couldn’t be at the hospital during the “month of madness” as much as her ex-husband (Cahalan’s father) was because of her work commitments. On top of being scared and worried, she must have had a lot of guilt. Again, it made me incredibly grateful to have my sanity, however fleeting it may seem at times.

Minot welcomes Canadian travellers The city of Minot, known as the ”Magic City” because of its sudden and rapid growth at the start of the 20th Century, is booming yet again. One of North Dakota’s most important trading centres, Minot’s thriving economy is a beacon to travelers from surrounding states and Canada, who are all searching for a place to shop and celebrate in style. With the rise in tourism to Minot over the past few years, no other sector is feeling the magic quite like the city’s hospitality industry. Wendy Howe, executive director of the CVB, wants to remind visitors that many new hotels have opened this year. Many are located conveniently close to Dakota Square Mall, with several others opening on the north end of the city. The majority of the new lodging facilities offer continental breakfast, pools, and managers receptions in the evening. Hotel managers are looking forward to showcasing their properties to Canadians and feel that it will be a

perfect fit for family getaways, girls’ shopping trips or a couple’s getaway. “We are pretty excited about the opening of those new hotels. It gives the visitors more options,” said Howe. “Also with the addition of all of those hotel rooms, which is about 1000 more rooms, it brings the rate down as well. We now see more rooms available at a better rate.” The new website makes planning a cross-border road trip easy. One of the highlighted features is the hotel availability search. Although this became available before the January improvements, it continues to be a useful tool. “Visitors can go in and put in the date they are planning to visit, and they will get a whole list of available rooms. They can then make the reservations right from there,” she said. Another feature which is highly regarded is the My Map feature. This allows tourists to select the places they are interested

in visiting (hotels, restaurants, shopping, and attractions) and add them all to a personalize map of Minot. The itinerary is printable and includes contact information for each venue. If these features weren’t enough, a coupon section was also added. This new section of the VisitMinot website is expected to be a great benefit for Canadians over the summer months. The more dollars saved, means more left for fun things such as shopping. “We have seen many hotels offering coupons on this section of the website, and these coupons are always changing so we encourage the visitor to check back often to see the new discounts,” she said. “Some of the coupons will ask you to present the coupon at the time of use others may tell you to mention the discount when making your reservation. I would encourage visitors to go to the coupon section of the website, under visitor information, and check out all of the discounts being offered.”

Cooking with Cherries . . . From the Prairies I am a retired school teacher who has always enjoyed cooking and gardening. As a certified master gardener, I am especially interested in the development of the Romance Series of sour cherries by Dr. Bob Bors and Rick Sawatzky at the University of Saskatchewan. High yields of high quality nutritious and delicious fruit are now grown on prairie soil. This past decade, cherries now proliferate where cherries have not grown before. I responded to the need for a cookbook to show the versatility of these locally grown cherries. This 275-page coil-bound cookbook is a collection of 371 recipes — all using sour cherries. The recipes are divided into seven categories —

preserves; breads, muffins, cookies; desserts; soups, salads, appetizers; main dishes; beverages and international favourites. A detailed 13page index allows the reader quick access to required recipes. The book

includes 67 “cherry pits.” These are bits of cherry trivia of horticultural, historic and ethnographic interest. The recipes use the common imperial measurement system. The ingredients are listed in the order they are used and the instructions are written in short, easy to follow sentences. Cooking with Cherries ... From the Prairies is a result of a total volunteer effort. My friends Lily Sawatzky, Loretta Bors and Lesya Foty all generously donated their time and talents in contributing, testing, editing and typing the recipes. All proceeds from the sale of this cookbook go to the Fruit Program in the Plant Sciences Department at the University of Saskatchewan. This money will provide scholar-

ships to support students working to develop better fruit crops for Saskatchewan. On Nov. 29, 2012, I was pleasantly surprised when the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards declared Cooking with Cherries ... From the Prairies a winner of the Best in Canada 2012 award in the category of Best Fundraising, Charity and Community Cookbook. The cookbook sells for $20. It is not currently for sale in Regina, but is available to order online through the University of Saskatchewan bookstore at bookstore.usask.ca. If you’re in Saskatoon, you can pick up a copy at the U of S, McNally Robinson Booksellers, the Western Development Museum or the Ukrainian Museum of Canada.

N I C K FAY E

Harvesting a love of music By Andrew Matte Putting life into perspective is a theme that runs throughout Nick Faye’s life these days. He saw his family walk away from their farm. He’s on the final stretch toward earning a university degree. And he’s planning to execute a lifelong plan to record a full-length album, buy a van and tour across the country to play his music. “I want to hit the road with my band and just enjoy it. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years but I haven’t been able to do it because I’ve been in school,” says Faye, 23. This year of reflection and new beginnings is the backdrop of Harvest EP, a three-song tribute to the Faye family farm. Published under the name Nick Faye and the Deputies, the songs are moody acoustic numbers in the Neil Young vein written to celebrate his family and the changing landscape of Saskatchewan farming. Faye, who’s always big into themes and reflecting on his own stories, grew up humming melodies while lending a hand at his father’s grain farm near Kelliher. He has a different take on farming and the role of the rural family than he did as a youth when he spent long days helping with chores and missing out on activities with school chums in the city. “It really is surreal. When I was a kid, I hated going out there because I missed sleepovers and I’d miss birthday parties or miss hanging out in the city with my friends. But I got to hang out with my grandparents and my dad and I got an experience that not a lot of people in the city get,” says Faye, whose father retired from farming in the fall. “(Harvest EP) was meant to be a souvenir of how rural Saskatchewan in changing. It’s no longer about small, family-owned farms. It’s all owned by big companies. And there are no small towns anymore unless you’re near a potash mine or some other industrial area.” Faye grew up with an unexplained

desire to create and seek words to accompany the melodies that came to him easily. Not from a musical family — though his grandfather played the accordion and performed occasionally at the Italian club — he pleaded with his parents to buy him a guitar. When they relented, he enjoyed learning the notes but his passion for stories and songs didn’t take off until he was a teenager. “It was just the coolest-looking instrument. I was so focused on getting that guitar, but eventually they bought me one … but for me, it’s really about the need to create. It became an everyday part of my life. It’s tough

to stop once you start.” Faye’s appreciation and affinity for playing music slowly evolved as he learned to record on his own using a computer and microphone. He’d later upload the content to MySpace to share with friends. Faye was pleased with the results of his work but also took solace in the process of making something from nothing. “If I am sweeping my dad’s grain bin at my dad’s farm, I would be making up songs in my head. That sort of thing was always a part of me. And if I didn’t get it out, it would drive me nuts. So getting it out became a rou-

tine and therapeutic.” Influenced by bands like the Barenaked Ladies and Foo Fighters, he continued to study business administration and marketing at the University of Regina while experimenting in different styles of music and learning a little about the music business. “In high school, I was into hardcore and metal. And I was a screaming vocalist for a hardcore band. That was a phase I went through. But that sparked my love for live music because so many people at those sorts of shows have so much energy and passion for the music,” says Faye. He learned that any sort of legiti-

mate success in music was unlikely because he was a full-time student. “The lifestyle of a successful musician is having to tour. And that’s not conductive to have kids or having a mortgage and that kind of thing.” That’s why this year is important because he’s unencumbered by his schooling. Even though making a new album and touring isn’t about seeking fame, there’s nothing wrong with dreaming a little. “Mostly, touring will be for my own personal desires. But, you never know,” he says. “I don’t think it will spawn anything full time. If it does, then great.”

ASK ELLIE

Teen’s worries of inadequacy are unfounded Q: I loved sex with my husband until menopause hit me. My pills for hot flashes don’t do anything for that sex-drive feeling. Believe me, I want it for myself, for the pleasure, and also for my husband. I understand why some men cheat later in life. It must be difficult to be a married man, want sex with your wife only, and to be denied. That’s cruel. But we have to be able to talk about this, husband to wife. My husband tells me he isn’t interested in sex at all. I couldn’t believe it, when I still want it but have no libido left. Missing Sex A: Your husband may have been showing kindness, trying to assure you he’s not upset that your libido’s gone. But you’re both talking around this topic, rather than looking for solutions. If your relationship’s good in other ways, you can have intimacy in this “life phase” too. It may not be as passionate and intercourse-based as in your younger years, but it can still

Ask Ellie

be satisfying and loving. Besides the pills you’re taking, there are many ways to encourage sexual contact, e.g. some herbal approaches that may ease the flushes, and using lubricants for intercourse. Your husband could consider an erectile stimulant (e.g. Viagra) if needed, or may be turned on simply by your making an effort. Close communication, cuddling, shared laughter, plus healthy nutrition and some fitness activity, all contribute to intimacy and feeling sexy.

Q: I’m 16, work one day a week, swamp myself with homework to maintain an 86-per-cent average,

and do volunteering and sports so that I don’t drown in depressing thoughts. Recently, I revealed my feelings to the guy I like and no surprise — he doesn’t like me back. Although I’ve kissed more than five guys and “dated” three, they never liked me. I feel it’s hopeless that I wake up at 5:30 a.m. to work out, shower, and make myself look good for school when nobody looks at me like that. I feel I’m the “ugly” friend who never gets hit on or asked for their number — the girl who gives advice to guys on how to get other girls. I feel like I’ll never know what it’s like to have a boy really like me. Is there something wrong with me? Worried Teenager A: Nothing’s “wrong” except your belief that you’ll never be liked by a boy. It’s making you feel desperate, when in fact you have a full productive life. The sad thing is that you don’t allow yourself to just enjoy all the aspects — succeeding in school and

helping others as a volunteer, and being a good friend to many. Instead you run yourself ragged and run yourself down, both of which guarantee no time, no confidence … like a self-fulfilling prophecy. You don’t need to befriend every boy to be liked. When they ask how to get girls, smile and say that’s theirs to learn on their own. A little mystery from you makes you more interesting. As for counting kisses and “dates” — I’m hoping the latter doesn’t refer to gratuitous sex without any real dating — it doesn’t make for popularity. Here’s what will improve your chances over time — pride in yourself and what you can do, a smiling appearance which makes everyone prettier and more approachable, and self-confidence that you have value and it will be appreciated. Remember, the other person has to have value too, and not be just a guy to kiss and “date” because he wants it.

Q: I’m 13, 5-foot-1, 97 pounds. I’m taking a summer trip with much swimming involved, but not comfortable with my body. I also have some hiparea scars from self-harm. Would it be smart not to swim, in case my scars show? Would it be wise to lose some weight? How can I do so without dieting/starving? Body Image A: I’m hoping you’re past whatever prompted your self-harm and now understand your responsibility to yourself and those who love you, to do yourself no harm. Focus on building a healthy self-image, no matter your weight (which my research finds is well within the normal range, dieting unnecessary). Swim. Participate in sports that help you appreciate and respect having a healthy, active body. Females and males alike have bodies with unique shapes, shades, and skin types. Your own body type makes you special. If you can’t value yourself, ask your parents to get you counselling help.

TA B L E F O R O N E

Dining solo more fun than you think By Jenn Sharp “Table for one, please.” The words strike fear into the hearts of many. The reasons are varied and complex. “What will I do in a restaurant by myself,” “I don’t want anyone I know to see me out eating alone,” or “I look like a complete loser. I don’t want to be surrounded by lovey dovey couples while I eat, like a loser, by myself.” I travel, alone, a lot, which necessitates my eating out, alone, a lot. But I’m a rare breed because I enjoy going out for a nice meal all by myself. As much as I thrive on others’ energy and love an engaging conversation, I also know when it’s time to turn off and tune out. Sharing a nice meal with JUST ME is one of the ways I do that. The first time I ate out alone was in Honolulu. My grandma had taken the family for a Christmas holiday to Hawaii and everyone had gone to Pearl Harbor for the day. I, in all my 16-year-old wisdom, decided to skip it in favour of going to the beach. But eventually I got hungry. What to do? I scampered off to the nearby Red Lobster. After a successful meal of coconut shrimp and Caesar salad, I paid the bill and, head held high, went back to the beach. My initial fear — that people would stare at me and wonder why I was alone — was completely unfounded. I had never felt more grown up. I learned that day that people are generally more concerned with what’s going on in their own lives than they are in yours. And no one really cares if you’re eating alone. I’ve still got some work to do though. I haven’t yet mustered the courage to ask for a table for one at a romantic evening spot, where the menu features five-course tasting menus meant for two. But I will. I’ve got several single girl (and guy) friends who share a common refrain: they don’t like cooking for one. It’s too time-consuming when there’s no one to appreciate all the effort, they say. Recipes are rarely designed for one person — families get all the glory. And believe me, I’ve cooked for a family before and it’s no easy task either. But singles should get more attention I say. I love cooking. I’m no chef but after 10 years in the restaurant industry, I’ve learned a thing or two. I love experimenting with different flavours and trying new dishes. I don’t always follow a recipe and often swap ingredients. Cooking is one of the ways I unwind and relax. It’s especially great when you don’t feel up to saying “table for one.” I came up with this dish the other night. The recipe makes enough for two because I like to take leftovers to work or save it for dinner the next night. Since I don’t really measure anything when I cook, all the measurements are approximate — adjust it to suit your own taste. If you’re cooking for more, the recipe can easily be doubled. Tell me what you think of it and share your table-for-one recipes. I’d love to reprint them in a future column. jksharp@thestarphoenix.com

Non-irrigated lawns save on water By Sara Williams As much as 50 per cent of household water is applied to your lawn. The easiest way to cut your water bill is to simply stop watering your lawn. To do that you need to use low maintenance grasses. These are grass species and cultivars that require little water, fertilizer or mowing. Instead of being smooth and soft, they tend to be lumpy and one does not voluntarily walk barefoot on them. They are usually mowed somewhat higher than conventional lawn grasses. These grasses work well on farms and acreages where their function is primarily visual. Once established, they require only occasional mowing and almost no irrigation or fertilizer. There are several species of three main genera to choose from: Fescue (Festuca), bluegrass (Poa) and wheatgrass (Agropyron). Chewings fescue (Festuca rubra var. commutata) has narrow, dark blue green leaves. It can be mixed with creeping red fescue and Kentucky bluegrass in conventional lawns. It spreads by tillering, is shade- and drought-tolerant and adapted to infertile, acid soils. Chewings fescue and creeping red fescue make a good blend, similar in height to a conventional lawn but requires less water, fertilizer and mowing. Recommended cultivars include: Agram, Arctared, Banner, Victory, Longfellow II and Silhouette. Blue-green in colour, sheep fescue (Festuca ovina) is strongly clumping with good drought tolerance and widely adaptive. Recommended cultivars include Nakiska and Azay. Hard fescue (Festuca ovina var. duriuscula) has a mature height of 15 to 25 cm, with wider blades and a more greyish-green colour than other fescues. It is slow growing but once established forms a low ground cover that competes well with weeds. Growth slows down during the heat of summer. It is drought and shade tolerant. Recommended cultivars in-

Non-irrigated lawns appear no different from irrigated ones but are not barefoot friendly. These lawns are best suited for large areas on a farm or acreage.

clude: Aurora, Biljart, Durar, Eureko II, Reliant, Spartan and Spartan II. Shorter and coarser than Kentucky bluegrass, Canada bluegrass (Poa compressa) has a blue-green colour. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adapted to a variety of soils, has a fibrous root system, extensive rhizomes and a clumpy form. It is tolerant of wear, stress and drought and is disease resistant. Reubens is less clumpy than the species. Although very drought tolerant, wheatgrasses show a strong clumping habit and are less dense than other grasses. Crested wheatgrass

(Agropyron cristatum) is a clumping bunch grass with excellent drought tolerance. The species seeds readily and may become invasive once established, particularly if planted near or among native grass species. Fairway crested wheatgrass is one of the best grasses for non-irrigated lawns. Northern wheatgrass (A. dasystachyum), a native species, is relatively low growing at 20 to 30 cm. With a strong spreading habit and extensive rhizomes, it establishes quickly and is well adapted to slopes, banks and sandy soils. Greyish green in colour, it has a clumpy appear-

ance. Elbee has excellent drought tolerance. Streambank wheatgrass (A. riparium) is a dry land species used in pure stands or in mixtures with small amounts of Kentucky bluegrass. It is a low-growing, sod-forming grass, with narrow leaves and stems 30 to 76 cm high. It has vigorous rhizomes and colonizes both by seed and its spreading root system. It flourishes on well-drained soils, withstands mowing and is highly competitive with weeds under dryland conditions. Long recommended for farm lawns, it establishes quickly

with good germination and seedling vigour. The seeding rates for the above in pure stands are 3.5 to 4.5 lb./1000 sq. ft. for the fescues, 1 to 2 lb./1000 sq. ft. for the bluegrass, and 3to 5 lb./1000 sq. ft. for the wheatgrasses.
