KIRBY AND COLLEEN GUST

Food-loving couple enjoying their forno oven By Ashley Martin On an outdoor dining table in his backyard, Kirby Gust rolls out pizza dough to just the right thickness. There’s an art to this: Too thick and you end up with a burnt bottom and raw, doughy inside. Kirby sprinkles the dough with cornmeal to give the crust more texture and flavour. A few slices of tomatoes, some pesto, basil and cheese and his Margherita pizza is ready. He pops the pizza peel into his homebuilt wood-fired oven and the delicious thin-crust pie is ready in a mere two minutes. Kirby and his wife Colleen, both employees at the Leader-Post, have enjoyed the culinary riches of their wood-fired oven since mid-August, when the six-week construction process came to an end. Both foodies, they’ve cooked lamb, porkchops with sage, beets with rosemary, smoked brisket and cinnamon buns, among other delights, but Kirby’s favourite so far has been the oven-baked bread. It comes out with a smoky flavour he’s been dreaming of since he was seven years old, the last time he had wood-fired ovenbaked bread. Last month, they were already thinking about smoking sausage this fall and roasting a Thanksgiving turkey. “Even when you’re using it, you’re thinking about what you’re going to cook the next time you use it,” said Kirby. When the Gusts’ favourite restaurant, Presutti’s Tomatoes, closed in 2005, the couple was left wanting for wood-fired cuisine in Regina. Indeed, the Cathedral Freehouse is the only Regina restaurant with a forno oven. Kirby is a handy man — a former carpenter, he’s tackled numerous projects around their home already. Inspired by chef Jamie Oliver, who has a wood-fired oven in his backyard, Kirby decided to build one of his own in White City.

He did six months of research on the Internet before starting to build. You can order pizza ovens for thousands of dollars from the website Forno Bravo, but the site also offers free plans for people to build their own. The oven’s bones are a steel frame from an old clay oven. A concrete bed measuring four feet squared by six inches is the next layer, followed by lava rock insulation, which can withstand temperatures of up to 1,150 C. A ceramic concrete board sits just below 130 cooking bricks. The oven’s rustic-looking exterior is made up of thousands of bricks, remnants of the New Year’s Day fire

in Moose Jaw in 2004. “We sort of wanted it to look old; we thought it would be a nice juxtaposition to the newness of the neighbourhood,” said Colleen. “Sometimes you go into the houses around here and the yards; everything is so new and so landscaped and designed.” The oven is decorated with a sundial and a decorative antique facade from an old fireplace. “I will recycle anything,” said Kirby. Reusing the bricks presented some challenges: Recycled bricks are not perfectly square, and because they’d been through a fire, some fell apart during the build.

Kirby used a beach ball to mould the dome, for which he had to cut every brick in half with a tile saw. “The bricks are basically vertical and they just wanted to fall in. I just wedged the beach ball up there to hold the bricks as I put them into place,” he said. To heat the oven, you build the wood fire to one side. After two hours, the oven is about 370 C and the cooking bricks are white hot. Pizzas are baked on a roaring fire. For bread, you clear the coals from the oven and use residual heat, closing the oven with an oak baking door. The next afternoon, the oven maintains a temperature of 93 C.

Despite the 150-odd hours Kirby invested, the oven was a fairly easy project and well worth the effort. For some people, a personal woodfired oven might seem excessive, but not for the Gusts. “We have a really nice barbecue too. Cooking is important to us,” said Colleen. The oven has already shown its practicality. For Colleen’s birthday party, Kirby baked pizzas for nine people in under a half an hour. With practice, “It’s getting to the point there’s not much we can’t cook at home,” said Kirby, whose nickname Gusto is Italian for flavour. “It was meant to be,” he joked.

By Ashley Martin Taneal Brucks, a 27-year-old University of Regina international studies student, loves to plant. Her main garden is the Regina Public Interest Research Group (RPIRG) Green Patch, of which she is the co-ordinator. The Green Patch is located on the south side of the Archer Library. One of the garden’s main purposes is to educate students about horticulture and food security. Brucks has been involved in the garden for months and has spent several hundred hours here over the course of the summer.

Q: When did you first start gardening? A: I gardened when I was a kid with my dad so it was always kind of a family thing. I saw my grandma garden and grow plants and I always admired people that had a green thumb, and then when I moved up to Meadow Lake five years ago, I started gardening on my own. I’ve always valued the idea of being sustainable and self-sufficient and just being able to produce my own food, but then when I started gardening on my own, you just come to realize the value of food. For me, gardening is a political action because it’s all about having the

right to produce your own food and to not be dictated by companies or by corporations or the market changes or by whatever the government decides to import or export; you choose your food, and I believe with the ideas of food sovereignty, we all have the right to eat. It’s just celebrating that. Food and gardening, it’s just something I’m passionate about.

Q: What can you tell me about the Green Patch? A: I volunteered here all summer and I did the perennial bed, and I’ve never done perennials before. We started with the idea of having native prairie plants. I’ve always been interested in native prairie plants because my dad always took us for nature walks and stuff, but I decided that I wanted it to be a mix of medicinal herbs and medicinal prairie plants. A whole bunch of the flowers in here are from northern Saskatchewan. Then I have wild strawberries; those are actually the tiny ones that grow in the bush. We have echinacea, poppies, salvia, I dug out some wild prairie sage from my mom’s pasture, I have some yarrow, there’s thyme and parsley, parsley’s annual. Lavender, some daisies, violas, and raspberries. Peppermint.

Green PAtch FACT: The huge garden was designed by an engineer in order to create a visually stimulating environment for the walkways and various beds.

The rest is just a basic garden. It’s just a ton of everything. The garden’s 5,400 square feet, so it’s a big space. The layout of it was actually designed by an engineer, to figure out what the best appearance would be for where we place our beds and where to put all our pathways, so there’s been a lot of thought that went into this.

Q: Did you use any chemicals? A: The only thing we used was insecticidal soap. It does have some chemical in it but from what I’ve

read about it, it’s not as bad. For the flea beetle issue I researched stuff and we’d spray a solution with cayenne pepper, onions and garlic and we’d just spray the plants with that and it seemed to work. We got two five-gallon pails of coffee grounds from the coffee shop here and just put them all around the plants that have flea beetles and I haven’t really seen them back since.

Q: Is this your only garden? A: I also have a garden at the Grow Regina community gardens. I’ve

put a lot more attention into this one. The one over there I’ve kind of let Mother Nature do its thing; I’ve weeded it a ton but I’m not as big on watering over there as I am with this one. But it’s still grown pretty good. I have hydroponics at my house; my husband built me hydroponics for Christmas and we had a four-foot tall pepper plant, cayenne peppers, in the window. It’s really fun to do in an apartment because I don’t have a balcony or anything, I just have a really hot west window. We’ve grown

thyme, basil, parsley, peppers, lettuce, beans. Some of the hydroponic plants grew better than my garden plants, in a one-and-a-half-litre pop bottle.

Q: Is this your favourite place on campus? A: This is absolutely my favourite place on campus. I’m the kind of person, before the garden last year, I would walk around campus and pick rose hips and use rose hips for tea. I like to teach people about garden-

ing. My favourite thing is when I’m here weeding, when someone comes and talks to me and they’re just really interested. It’s just so exciting to teach people about gardening and to give them a food they’ve never had before ... It’s just mind-blowing. (Gardening) just slows me down so much in such a good way. Even though I’m just here by myself all the time, I talk to the people going by and I give zucchinis to everybody and it’s just relaxing to me. Being in the garden, that’s my favourite place.

R YA N M E I L I

Ideas for a healthier society As a family doctor, I have the privilege of getting to know people in times of great joy, sadness and vulnerability. It’s an incredible experience to hear people’s stories and be asked to assist them in making their lives just a little bit better. It’s also very frustrating at times. While I can often help out with medications, advice, or just taking the time to listen, much of what I’m able to give has little impact. The things that make the biggest difference — the determinants of health — are income, education, employment, housing, nutrition: Where and how we live. In A Healthy Society: How a Focus on Health can Revive Canadian Democracy, I discuss these determinants of health as the key to a

political renewal focused on human health. Each chapter starts with the story of a patient, someone I’ve worked with in inner-city Saskatoon, in rural Saskatchewan, or in Mozambique in southeast Africa. Starting with a description some of the problems in health and politics today, the book goes on to dig further into the determinants of health and their implications for public policy. Chapters dedicated to specific determinants of health: Economics, education, physical environments, justice and health care, provide further depth for understanding the effects of these elements on human health and describe feasible models for change. A chapter on democratic reform gives suggestions for just how we can organize to

Ryan Meili

make the changes we need to have a healthier society. The final chapter summarizes the key points of the

book, painting an image of a political movement based on the determinants of health and the tangible results in people’s lives. Just like with a good patient visit, we start with a problem — in this case a sense of distress over the current state of affairs — and move into a deeper understanding and exploration of the issues at hand and the available alternatives, and finally to a sense of hope and realistic course of action. A Healthy Society proposes, through a mix of scholarship and story, a new approach to politics.

Finish ripening your garden veggies indoors

Winter squash are long season crops that may not be mature before frost arrives. PHOTO COURTESY of JACKIE BANTLE

By Jackie Bantle Growing vegetables in Saskatchewan is like running a relay race. The summer garden veggies (like zucchini and peas) lead for most of the race but in the final leg, Jack Frost pulls out in front leaving many of the slower fall veggies in the dust. Thankfully, even though some of this long sea-

son garden produce didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it to the finish line before Jack arrived, there are ways to enjoy these fall veggies by ripening them indoors. Mature green veggies are physiologically mature but have not had enough time to develop some of the characteristics of a completely mature veggie. But given the proper ripening environment, these veggies can continue to mature off the plant.

Frost doesn’t have to end the gardening season. Brussels sprouts and parsnips taste better after a good frost. Cabbage can withstand several degrees of frost. Carrots can survive frost as long as the ground remains unfrozen.

Determining whether produce is mature green is not always easy. Mature green peppers will be firm and waxy looking and may have a slight red or yellow tinge to the skin. Mature green tomatoes will often have lighter green shoulders or some pink or red streaks. Veggies that are not mature green will simply rot in storage. However, when faced with the choice between waiting to make sure my veggies are mature green or losing a lot of produce to low temperature damage, I always pick everything that’s sensitive, mature green or not, right before a frost warning. And then keep a close eye on them while they are ripening indoors. Green bell peppers and tomatoes that are physiologically mature will turn red or yellow when left at room temperature (20 C). Ripening tomatoes prefer 90 to 95 per cent humidity with good air movement. Storing tomatoes or peppers in a paper bag

will speed up the ripening process. To slow the ripening process, decrease the temperature to 13 to 15 C but continue to provide good humidity and ventilation. Winter squash (acorn, buttercup, hubbard) and pumpkins are long season crops that also may not be quite mature by the time fall frost arrives. Although vines will wilt and die as soon as temperatures fall below 0 C, mature green pumpkins and winter squash can withstand 3 to 4 C of frost. If a light frost (-1 to -2 C) is predicted, leave the fruit in the garden. If the fruit has a water-soaked appearance and feels soft after encountering a light frost, the fruit was not mature green and would have rotted in storage. To finish the ripening process, fresh picked winter squash and green pumpkins (with hopes of turning orange) should be placed in a warm, dry location; in front of

humidity, such as a cool damp basement with good air movement. Corn requires a long, warm growing season. Corn plants will die as soon as temperatures dip below 0 C. The cobs, protected in their husks, will sometimes withstand 1 to 2 C of frost. If the corn leaves are frozen but the cobs aren’t, the roots are most likely still active. These same roots will continue to take up nutrients, including nitrogen. Since the leaves are no longer alive, the nitrogen is instead transferred to the cobs resulting in a buildup of nitrates in the corn cob. Eating corn with an excessive amount of nitrates is not recommended. So be sure to pick those corn cobs the day after the corn stalks have frozen. Discard anything that isn’t ripe as corn will not mature off the plant. Frost doesn’t have to end the gardening season. Brussels sprouts and parsnips taste better after a

good frost. Cabbage can withstand several degrees of frost. Carrots can survive frost as long as the ground remains unfrozen. Underground potato tubers will survive an overnight frost of -3 C; wait for the ground and air to warm up before harvesting them. Final words: Bring those mature green veggies and fruit inside the house to ripen. Check often for rot and disease. If you follow some of the tips from last week’s column (cover close-to-the-ground vegetables to protect them from overnight low temperatures in order to take advantage of continuing warm days), you can delay the harvest for a little while at least. With a little extra help, fall veggies can still beat Jack Frost in the final garden lap.

As crazy as it sounds, I’m glad it happened. It kind of made for a storybook ending. — Kaylyn Kyle

K ay ly n K y l e

Saskatchewan’s golden girl shows her mettle By Jeanette Stewart The two men at the next table look over, but don’t interrupt until Kaylyn Kyle takes a velvet box out of her white Michael Kors bag. As she pulls out her Olympic bronze medal, one of the men at the table says hello and asks for a photo. An acquaintance, he is now a mortgage broker. Kyle has followed a very different path to success. The 23-year-old has spent the past few years of her life travelling. The University of Saskatchewan Huskies player left post-secondary education early to focus on soccer. “I’m a Gypsy,” she said. From this vantage point, the decision looks like it was a good one. The medal on the purple ribbon feels solid, heavy for its size. If there’s anything that symbolizes athletic success, this is it. Kyle agreed to an interview at a coffee shop in Saskatoon a couple of weeks after her team’s historic finish at the 2012 Summer Olympics. On a hot day, Kyle arrives tanned and blonde, sporting a large pink gold wristwatch and jean shorts. She orders a blueberry London Fog, no fat, no sugar. Kyle could be described as soccer’s glamour girl, but that would downplay her abundance of athletic ability. Throughout the Olympic tournament, her trademark white-blond hair worn in a long ponytail down her back made it easy to spot the midfielder as she ran across the field. The South American girls pulled her hair, but never the Americans or Europeans. In every game, she wore a baby pink headband. “It’s my lucky headband. I always wear pink, I can’t wear any other colour,” said the superstitious star. She won’t wear black cleats, either; she sent her first sponsorship shipment of Pumas back. “Now they send me the craziest colours.” Continued on Page 14

The Canadian women’s bronze-medal finish this summer was Canada’s first medal in a team sport at the Summer Olympics since 1936. The victory against France came on the heels of a controversial, nail-biting semifinal game with the United States’ women’s team. The Americans took the game 4-3 in extra time. Controversial calls by the referee prompted a huge backlash. Captain Christine Sinclair (who scored an impressive three goals) drew fire for her statements about the officiating. “We can’t comment on that. It is what it is,” said Kyle, who sees the bright side of their medal-winning finish. At the end of the day, she says, it all brought much-needed attention to Canadian soccer. “As crazy as it sounds, I’m glad it happened. It kind of made for a storybook ending,” she said. “I loved it, to be honest. I’m a fighter and I always have been. That was a perfect ending for me.” With world-class performances also comes a world-class coaching staff. After a bad game, the players are encouraged not to read social media, and a mental coach helps them refocus after tough games. With that fairy tale finish behind them, the players are left to focus on life after the Olympics. Kyle headed home to Saskatoon after the games to stay with her parents, though anyone who follows her online activities knows she’s been jet-setting ever since. “It’s easy to come home when you have an amazing support system,” she said.

Most of my followers are young girls. That’s pretty cool to know that I’m only 23 and I’m inspiring eight-, nineand 10-year-olds. It’s cool to see the young girls writing you messages. — Kaylyn Kyle

Her first move, after fulfilling a fawning rush of local media requests, was to head to Las Vegas for a weekend with friends. She later took in a Rider game. The plan is to follow her coach’s orders to relax. The team is off until November. They will play a tournament in Greece in the new year. But Kyle can’t stay out of the gym. “We’re not supposed to work out, but I love being in the gym, so I’ve been working out,” she said. Kyle is a natural-born athlete. Her father was a professional hockey player and her mother a competitive volleyball player. Growing up in Saskatoon, the family was surrounded by sports, says older sister Courtnee, who also played soccer at the national level. “We were always outside playing soccer on the pitches, or in gyms playing basketball or volleyball. I think we both played everything at one stage,” Courtnee said via email. “If we were not playing ourselves, then there was always hockey, soccer, NA-

SCAR, or NFL football on the TV. “For the three weeks the Olympics were on, our house shut down. It wouldn’t matter if it was the summer games or the winter games, we were all in front of the TV.” Kaylyn credits a lot of her success to her parents, who she calls her ‘superfans.’ “The big thing is, my parents didn’t push me in it. I did competitive diving, competitive gymnastics. I tried baseball but I wasn’t very good. In high school I did basketball and tennis. I never focused in on one sport and I think that’s super-important. Lots of kids do get pushed,” she said. The pressure came from Kyle herself. She first made her provincial team as a backup goalkeeper. She put in extra work at soccer academies in Saskatoon, trained on her own and eventually was able to leave the net. She remembers being obsessed with the national team’s star players like Sinclair. At one point, she had the team captain’s poster on her bedroom wall. Her high school team at Bishop James Mahoney won both the city and provincial

titles while she was there, and after high school Kyle joined the U of S Huskies. After only a year, she was invited to play for the Canadian women’s national team and was offered a contract to play professionally in Sweden. She’s spent the last few years playing around the world. Kyle nearly made the team for the Beijing Olympics, and played in the World Cup in 2011. The process of making the team for London 2012 was gruelling. Kyle moved to Vancouver and did a residency program for four months, with two or three workouts per day, weights and fitness training. There were 30 players in rotation and only 18 made the final squad. Said Courtnee: “I know Kaylyn will tell you that she always dreamt of becoming a professional athlete and someday playing in the Olympics, but she didn’t know if it would happen. I can tell you that there has never been a doubt in my mind that she would someday represent her country on a world stage.”

While the tournament took up most of their time there, Kyle made the most of the Olympic experience in London after the final victory. A fan took the team up and down the Thames in a yacht. Kyle and a couple of friends took in as many events as possible. They celebrated at night — using Kyle’s medal to gain VIP access to one club. A big highlight was seeing the Spice Girls at the closing ceremony. Now, Kyle aims for continued success. After the games, she secured a new agent and travelled to New York to meet with potential sponsors. “It should be a good year for me,” she said. It can be hard for Canadian athletes to support themselves, juggling government funding and support from an agency called CAN Fund. “There’s so many Canadian athletes and not all of us get it,” she said. “You really base it on your personal sponsors or your professional contracts outside the team. I’ve been extremely lucky. I can’t complain at all.” Though Kyle shies from the term “celebrity,” she has considerable online clout. She now has more than 22,000 followers on Twitter, a number that jumped during the high-profile soccer finals. Many of these are young female soccer players. “I would definitely not call myself a celebrity by any means,” she said. “Most of my followers are young girls. That’s pretty cool to know that I’m only 23 and I’m inspiring eight-, nine- and 10-year-olds. It’s cool to see the young girls writing you messages.”

Her advice is to put in the hard work. She recalls making the national team and having other parents write in to the team, saying she didn’t deserve to be there. “It’s so cliche to say, and I hate saying it, but it’s all about hard work,” she said. “I love proving people wrong. I’d just think of those emails.” She’s done coaching work and public speaking. Before the Olympics, Kyle travelled to Liberia, Africa as an ambassador for an organization called Right to Play “It was incredible to see how little they have and how happy they are,” she said. “It’s really kept me humble throughout this whole experience.” At 23, as long as she works hard, Kyle could have a long career on the national level. Some of her teammates are in their early 30s. “It all depends on how your body holds up, basically.” For her, a future would involve coaching or sports broadcasting. Right now, she wants to focus on promoting soccer in Canada, and specifically within Saskatchewan where the sport often takes a back seat to hockey. She hopes to do a camp in Saskatoon with some of her national teammates in October or November. “Growing up and playing soccer together, I just knew it,” said Courtnee. “She just had it. I can’t tell you what ‘it’ is but she was different and I always knew that she was going to do something amazing.” REG46404230_1_1

ON THE SCENE #

THE DISTRIKT's FINAL WEEKEND 1.

Several hundred people crammed The Distrikt the night of Saturday, Sept. 15, to help mark the end of the once popular Regina nightclub. Blaming the changing tastes of young people and too few bands touring across the country, the owners of the Hamilton Street building decided to shut the business down. However, organizers made sure The Distrikt went out with a bang and hosted four nights of concerts that ended on Sunday, Sept. 16. The biggest party was held on Saturday when the sold-out venue hosted several hundred live music fans and local bands including Fly Points, Great Rooms, The Minnow, Fur Eel, Jason Plumb & The Willing and country artist Blake Berglund. The evening culminated with a reunion performance by The Waltons. A new tenant is to begin renovations and open a health and fitness facility in the building, which is slated to open in December. 1.

A Fitness Studio for Women of All Shapes & Sizes It’s hard to believe that Tracy Read, a fit & energetic woman ever struggled with anything, let alone weight loss issues. It was her own struggles however, that now enable her to empower and motivate so many women. “Everything happens for a reason”, says Tracy, founder and owner of Read~iness Fitness, “when opportunity knocks, open the door!” Tracy’s decision to open a studio came about in a truly inspiring moment in January 2012 while attending a boot camp class. Tracy noticed a terrified looking newcomer to the group. Only ten minutes into class, the woman left to the change rooms.Tracy quickly excused herself from class to find the woman in tears, feeling defeated and overwhelmed. Sharing her own experiences with fitness & weight loss, Tracy motivated the woman not only to finish class, but to continue with the classes that remained. Tracy, having had issues with being overweight herself, dreamed of a place where women felt comfortable, were led by a motivating female, and incorporated variety as well as flexibility so busy women could fit it into their schedules. Realizing that her vision was truly unique, Tracy leased a commercial property to start her own studio. In the past three months Read~iness has grown from a dream to a reality with over 70 clients and new members joining every week!

“More than just your trainer, also your friend and motivator” www.readinessfitness.com

Read~iness Fitness caters to women of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels. Classes include boot camp style, one-onone training, and a 90 Day Lifestyle Transformation Package. “Classes,” promises Tracy, “are go at your own pace”, though she admits she will push all the women to work harder. “It’s truly amazing and inspiring”, says Tracy,“to see these woman working so hard - pushing themselves and encouraging one another during class”. Fitness classes are flexible, true to Tracy’s original vision, offered early mornings, during the day, as well as evening classes. Yoga, a recent addition set to start in October, will be offered three times a week. Making the commitment to join a fitness program can be daunting, so Tracy welcomes everyone to come out and try a class for free. For more information about or to contact Tracy to try out one of her classes visit readinessfitness.com In wanting to create a complete environment of health, wellness and beauty, Tracy sought out other like-minded entrepreneurial business women.She is proud to introduce Studio Bellissimo!

1378 McIntyre Street

Studio Bellissimo - Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful Friends Bobbi Behiel and Jamie Palka took advantage of their own unique opportunity after responding to an

ad wanting to share space with health and beauty professionals. “We knew it was meant to be,” comments Bobbi after viewing the space located at 1378 McIntyre Street to be shared with fitness trainer and owner of Read~iness Fitness, Tracy Read.

Bobbi offers varying degrees of massage, ranging from relaxation, to therapeutic and deep tissue or even her own special version of hot/cold stone massage. Jamie, with many years of salon experience, and attendance at hair shows, has a passion for creating. “When you book a salon service with me, that time is dedicated to you and you alone.” One thing is certain, the energy and passion these women have for their work is truly contagious. It is hard not to feel excited and energized after visiting with these talented entrepreneurs. The women are excited to announce that starting in October a full range of esthetic services will be offered including: manicures, pedicures, waxing, facial treatments, as well as, makeup application and gel nails. Together, owners Bobbi and Jamie bring almost forty years of combined experience to the services offered at Studio Bellissimo.

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

What kinds of structured activities is your child involved in? How many is too many before you and/or they burn out? “The kids are in swimming lessons together. Grams and gramps visit on Tuesday evenings, and the big brothers come over on Sunday for games and dinner. We also host a couple of youth groups on Friday and Saturday evenings. This is more than enough to keep us busy! I think that being on the go every night is too much. We need some down time and quiet time to enjoy each other together. The kids really like movie nights with us, regular walks and outdoor play with the dogs at home.” — Carla Contreras

asked to play hockey. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get into the 3-4-5 fun league so as a compromise we registered him for a learn to skate class (along with his brother who had no preference for an activity). We always have the boys enrolled in at least one structured activity each term (Sept-Dec, Jan-May). I refuse to put them into anything requiring more than a two-hour time commitment each week (and that’s even pushing it) since they’re still so young. As they get older, I’m sure I’ll put a limit of no more than three activities each week.” — Michelle Grodecki

Band works to win over reluctant fans

Pandas in Japan. QC photo by Andrew Spearin

By Jeanette Stewart It’s not easy being different. Or in the case of Saskatoon band Pandas in Japan, having slightly divergent musical tastes. While their sound is no more avant-garde than, say, Sonic Youth’s poppier material, the band still faces a bit of resistance in the city. “We actually had a metal head give us the finger once at a Battle of the Bands. She was so mad about how we were playing,” said drummer Maxwell Warner. “It’s hit or miss with a lot of people,” said bass player Dylan Cardenas. “In Saskatoon, what’s really big

right now is the ’70s revival s---,” said guitarist Jonny Walker. “The Sheepies,” added Warner. The group’s sound is a mix of jam band and ’90s throwback. Think early grunge and indie like Nirvana, The Pixies, Dinosaur Jr. and you’re on track. The band members also list groups like Liars, Tame Impala, Jay Reatard, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and the surf rock music of the 1960s as major influences. Walker and Cardenas trade off vocals and songwriting duties. They’ve been playing together for about a year, with Warner joining the group about eight months ago. Songwriting is a collaborative process for the group. “I usually write about destruction

and sex,” said Walker. “Whatever’s kind of on my mind. I only write my lyrics as I’m learning the song, on-the-spot type of thing,” said Cardenas. When it came time to find a name for the group, they decided to call themselves Japandas, then realized it was taken. Then there was Japandroids and Japanther. Also both taken. “Yo dude, I said Pandas in Japan first,” said Warner. Though they’ve united over pandas, each member claims a different spirit bear. Walker’s is the Grizzly, Cardenas’ is the Koala and Warner’s is the Panda. As a new band, their sound is constantly evolving.

“I want to become really accessible but still have a lot of edge. And super psychedelic,” said Walker. At a recent Battle of the Bands competition the group made it to the finals, but they’re certain their friends didn’t drink enough to earn them a spot in the final round. The group is part of a community that includes a number of upstart groups such as Pirate Fridays, Young Benjamins and Castle River. “We want to become like Castle River,” said Cardenas with genuine appreciation, and not just because the group’s drummer was hanging out waiting to go to the lake with them after the Pandas’ afternoon show.

“We’re in their giant shadow,” added Warner. It seems the group manages to balance fun with playing music. They hang often as a group, and make jokes that run around each other. They willingly doled out advice for bands just starting out. “Never turn down a festival. Always smile and talk to everyone as much as you can. Be nice guys,” said Walker. “You’re making music for people to listen to, why not be a nice person?” said Warner. Pandas in Japan play in Saskatoon at Amigos Sept. 28 with Bend Sinister as part of CFCR’s FM-Phasis fundraiser. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Social cat always ready for a sleepover

Morrisey the cat. QC photo by Andrew Spearin

By Jeanette Stewart Though April Nechvatel professes to be a “cat lady,” things seem pretty normal until she pulls a jar off a window sill in her living room. Inside the jar is a collection of whiskers shed from her cat Morrisey. “I’m going to do something with them,” she said. “You know, like quill art? But using whiskers.” Strange ways indeed. The banjoplaying cat lady was happy to introduce QC to her best feline friend, who is named after a British rock star.

Q: Where did you get Morrisey? A: Morrisey came from the SPCA in

January, 2008.

Q: Why did you get him? A: Because I was lonely and I’m from out of province, so I don’t have family here. Q: How did you come up with his name? A: I was really into The Smiths. Q: What’s his favourite kind of food? A: Elk. Q: Why did you start feeding him elk? A: You can get local, raw elk in Saskatoon (from Pet Planet) and I just wanted to feed him responsibly.

Q: Do people think your choice to feed him raw food is strange? A: I don’t think so. Maybe not with my group of friends. It’s a lot healthier because it doesn’t have a lot of filler in it. It doesn’t have grains and whatnot. Plus he gets chronic bladder infections so he has to eat really clean. Q: How did you discover he had bladder infections? A: He pees (in the house) when he’s got a bladder infection. He’s also on homeopathics. Q: How did you end up choosing a homeopathic remedy?

A: I went to the vet after his first couple bladder infections and they tried to treat it. It didn’t work and they told me that lots of people that have cats with chronic bladder infections will put their pets down, or opt to get this operation that I couldn’t afford. I just did some research of my own and I put him on homeopathics and they work really well. Any time he gets one it will be gone within 24 hours. And they’re cheap. Q: Does he do anything that really annoys you? A: He’s a really well behaved cat. And he’s independent enough that he’s not annoying at all. The only thing

that maybe annoys me is if he’s getting bladder infections, sometimes he meows in pain. But I’m pretty caring. Sometimes he brings animals into the house.

Q: Do you have any favourite stories? A: One time I went home and my cat was asleep on my bed with two neighbourhood cats. Q: So he’s a social animal? A: Very social. Sometimes I feel bad that I don’t have a friend for him, but I will once I move to a house. Q: Do people call you a cat lady? A: All the time.

H o r o s c o p e s b y h o l i d ay

For week of Sept. 16, 2012 By Holiday Mathis Mercury, the zodiacal minister of communication, has not always played this role. According to legend, the god started off as a bit of a thief. To keep him out of trouble, his father, Zeus, put him in charge of commerce, birds, pigs, trade, and various and sundry responsibilities. This week, as Mercury enters Libra, politics and other relationships will fall into Mercury’s realm of influence. A bright, inventive, co-operative energy prevails. ARIES (March 21-April 19).

You respect social norms with the exception of anything that threatens to limit your privacy, personal expression or freedom. Such infringements are intolerable to you and you’re likely to speak up about the injustice, especially on Thursday and Friday. You could even start a social movement. TAURUS (April 20-May

20). What keeps you from achieving a certain goal is only real because you believe it is. If you believe it’s just an excuse, it will be that. And what if you believe it’s a solvable problem? You’ll solve it. You’ll come up with the answer and move past it. Your increased confidence this week helps matters, too. GEMINI (May 21-June 21).

You’ll be presented to new people and groups and introduced in a way that makes you feel terrific. You may find this slightly surprising because you don’t often think of how others see you. Introductions give you an interesting glimpse of yourself from an outsider’s view. CANCER (June 22-July 22).

Infants learning to walk don’t think about what happened the last time they tried and fell down. Instead, they get up and try again, and their body works out the

physical equation. Similarly, you don’t have to think about the past to act on all it has taught you. Trust yourself to automatically adjust. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll

meet someone you really want to impress. As you wonder what would impress this person, consider the value of being an authentic human. So few people are willing to say what they really want or admit what they are afraid of. Be different and you’ll be most impressive.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).

Attitude is everything. Does it really make sense to keep going at a task with a sour attitude? Whether the attitude in question is yours or someone else’s, consider walking away for a time. Solving problems and getting through instances of low morale will be easier when you have a better perspective. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).

Your manner of dealing with a particularly challenging

part of your life will shift and this is the first week of the change. Refuse to fight the fight. Step back and sense your advantage. Where are your points of leverage? Tuesday brings a support system. You’ll hold tangible evidence of your success on Friday. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

A key is often a small thing and yet its power is enormous. It can open a home or start the vehicle that takes you across the world. This week introduces a kind of key that is typically small and yet not tangible. It’s more of an idea or an approach that can open the whole world. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). If you make a bad

impression, don’t worry. A bad impression is still an impression. You weren’t put on Earth to fade into the background. Consider that you may have been put here to make mistakes — and to

occasionally feel the exquisite thrill of winning. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your wishes come in

many sizes, shapes and colours. The universe doesn’t discriminate. Sometimes big wishes come true while small ones go unanswered. Other times, it’s the opposite. You may suspect your blessings have been dealt at random. This week’s evidence suggests that’s not the case at all. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When is your time your

own? If you give too much of it away to activities that don’t mean anything to you or to people who drain you, you may feel like the answer is never. You’ll remedy your situation this week, carving out several hours to do what feeds your soul. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

Devote yourself in some small way to developing in the manner to which you aspire. Maybe it’s a project,

a talent or an abdominal exercise. Twenty minutes may not seem like a significant amount of time to get something done, but when you dedicate those 20 minutes on a daily basis, things develop at a rate most pleasing. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS:

Many of your predictions about this year will come true because you planned them and made them happen. But there also will be the perfect sprinkle of the unpredictable to give you a chance to prove your grace, adaptability and strength of character. The next seven weeks bring excitement. Fresh faces influence your work. A lifestyle upgrade happens in December. November brings better ways of managing money.

R o s e m o u n t Tr a m i n e r - R i e s l i n g

An entrancing Riesling By James Romanow In case you haven’t been watching, the mighty Aussie wine engine has blown a gasket. The listings are disappearing, the consumers moving on to newer pastures, and the price of vineyards has actually started to drop. The larger, more efficient producers will survive and what’s more, they’ll make wines that will be a deal. When times are tough, the tough get going. In this case, that means kicking the stuffing out of the vineyard down the road owned by a couple doctors dreaming of pastoral retirement. Rosemount Traminer-Riesling

is one of the more interesting wines on offer in this province. The packaging has changed — the expensive ‘diamond’ shaped bottle is gone — but the wine inside is exactly what it has always been: refreshing, crisp, slightly floral and with an interesting finish. Traminer is a grape from the Alps, northern Italy and southwestern Austria. It’s the parent to Gewurztraminer, and has that slightly spicy-floral bouquet that is so entrancing. Riesling is one of the most famous grapes in the world, typically grown in cooler climates. The sugar content is balanced by a crisp acidity that some people find off-

putting. Rosemount has finessed this issue by blending it into the Traminer, making a slightly fuller palate. The resulting wine has a great floral bouquet with some hints of citrus. The palate is round enough not to scare off the modern drinker but has enough acidity to keep people like me buying it. This is a wine that will go well with all Asian food, particularly Thai-inspired cuisine. I think of it as the perfect salad or lunchtime wine, especially as the winemakers (unusual for Aussies) have kept the alcohol level to only 10 per cent.

1953 METEOR

Snell still driving his high school car By Ashley Martin Paul Snell has always been a car fanatic. About 40 years ago, he and his father, Vern Snell, started collecting vehicles and they haven’t stopped. One of Paul’s most prized cars is his 1953 Mercury Meteor, a car from Ford’s luxury line. He bought it second-hand for about $300 when he was 16 years old. Even though he parked it for a few years, Paul has restored the Meteor three times and continues to love the car today. “It’s been with me a long time,” he says.

Q: Tell me about your Meteor. A: It’s a Canadian model; they didn’t make them in the States in those years. It had a special dash; it kind of looks like an airplane cockpit with the switches. It has a little bigger motor. It’s a coupe — they called it a businessman’s coupe — so it has a little smaller back window. It kind of has that chrome splashing thing like a meteorite. If you look at the trunk, it’s got a splash of chrome on the back and then it’s got scallops on the side, which make it look like it’s moving quickly. Q: How did you decide in high school you wanted this car? A: Well, it was a friend of my older aunt’s. She was an older lady that couldn’t drive anymore and her husband had passed away, and she decided to give the car up and sell it. It only had 30,000 miles on it in that time period, so it was probably 10, 12 years old when I bought it. It wasn’t brand new by any means. I did have another car before this but it had quite a bit of rust, so this was in much better shape. It was a much wiser choice because I didn’t have to repair it much; it was very well looked after. Q: Why did you restore this car? A: I just parked it back on the farm here and then unfortunately the

mice got into it and it rusted a bit. When I did come back to Saskatchewan (from working in Calgary), I had to get it fixed up with the rust and that. Eventually, unfortunately, the rust came back so I had to get it done again. The last time I did it all the panels were taken out and I put new metal in because of corrosion and rust, so that was done about five years ago. (I) did (the) upholstery and all that, did the headliner because the mice had got into there.

Q: How many cars do you have? A: I’d rather not say at this time. It’s sometimes more than I can look after (laughs).

Q: What does your partner think of your car collection? A: Luckily she’s on board. She likes the cars and she joins in with the car club and stuff. She’s quite into the design and art of things too, so she can appreciate the artistic side of the vehicles as well as the mechanics to drive them. Q: Are you a mechanic? A: I know a little bit, but when it comes to the real heavy-duty stuff I have to rely on people that are a lot smarter than I am and a lot more skilful. That’s the unfortunate part, it’s very expensive to restore these vehicles. It’s more a passion for the hobby than it is a money-making proposition.

Q: Why do you love it? A: I don’t know why. We’ve got pictures of when I was a little kid hanging around cars, just hanging onto the aerial or doing something with the cars. Toy cars or whatever it was. I knew every car on the road, every tail light, everything about them, the motor displacement. I guess if you’re a car guy you could understand that. Fortunately, dad liked vehicles as well so we both shared the interest. Q: How old is your dad now? A: He’s 88. Q: Is he still restoring cars? A: To a point. He’s still interested. He’s slowing down a bit but he enjoys keeping tabs on things.

Q: Why was it important for you to keep this car all these years? A: It’s got me through a lot of good times and a lot of trouble. Well worth the keeping of it for sure.

Connie Novitski: Fun and frugal

By Ashley Martin

For the past couple of years, Connie Novitski has looked to Zooey Deschanel for fashion cues. Novitski identifies with the celebrity’s quirky, indie style. “She’s probably the only person that’s ever really stood out (to me) as being unique,” says Novitski, who works in marketing at the U of R Centre for Continuing Education and is launching a graphic design business this fall. The look she’s created today is “something that’s a bit more work oriented but still fun, still flowy.”

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

Ordering online way of the future By Jenn Sharp An innovative website launched in Saskatoon recently, and plans are in place to expand to Regina shortly. Skip the Dishes allows you to find your favourite restaurants and order your food online. Diners are given the option of having their food delivered or available for pickup. Each restaurant listed on the site clearly states if delivery is an option and, if it is, what the minimum charge will be. Skip the Dishes is the brainchild of three brothers, Josh, Dan and Chris Simair. Larger urban centres have sites like Skip the Dishes but it’s a first for Saskatchewan. The Simairs recruited a Saskatoon IT team to build the site. A total of 12 people worked on it, all U of S alumni. Before launching the site they tested it on a group of 150 people to work out the kinks. I tried out the website earlier this week and was happy with the clean design and easy to use features. To begin the ordering process, one types in the postal code of a business or home. The site then shows the restaurants in that area ready to make an order. You can also specify the delivery or pick up time. If you pick the delivery option button, the site will only show restaurants equipped for delivery. Once you’ve picked your restaurant, a comprehensive menu with pricing appears. Click on the meal you want and a list of options comes up (toppings, bread selection, etc.) if applicable. A box to type in any special instructions also appears. You must have an account with Skip the Dishes to complete your order but signing up was easy. You can then choose to pay by cash or credit card. I chose the delivery option from a local donair shop and got a confirmation email saying my order was received minutes later. Shortly after, my order was cancelled. I got a call from Josh Simair explaining the donair shop I had ordered from had

changed its delivery options on the weekend and hadn’t had the chance to update the site. While I was disappointed not to get the donair, the personal call was a nice touch — a bonus of shopping with a locally owned business. My first question for Simair was how would a restaurant handle another source of orders coming in over a busy noon hour? He said it’s actually a time saver. Online ordering gives restaurant staff a sense of security that isn’t always possible when taking orders over the phone. It also frees up the staff. Answering the phone and tediously reading options and asking questions takes precious moments a restaurant can’t spare during peak dining periods. “All the items (on Skip the Dishes) are up to date. It reduces error and

makes the ordering process quicker,” says Simair. Once an order has been placed, the automated service sends a smart call to the restaurant, letting staff know it has an order. The order appears on a computer screen where it can be printed for kitchen staff. The website already has more than 20 restaurants signed up with more coming on board in the future. Ordering takeout and delivery online is the way of the future, says Simair, as Boston Pizza is scheduled to go completely online by 2014. “Small, local restaurants don’t have the budget or the capacity to maintain an online ordering system.” That’s where Skip the Dishes came in to help.

Boursin and Braised Kale Grilled Cheese Sandwiches While using Skip The Dishes is convenient, if you’re on a budget the best choice is to eat at home. With that in mind, food writer and the founder of the Start From Scratch cooking program, Dan Clapson, provided the following recipe. It’s gourmet enough to feel like you’re eating out but simple enough to make at home. Ingredients: >1 yellow onion (thinly sliced) >1 tbsp. butter >3 cups kale (loosely chopped) >1/3 cup dried cranberries

>1 tbsp. grainy Dijon mustard >1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar >1/4 cup water >1/3 cup boursin cheese >12 thin of slices mozzarella cheese >12 slices of deli turkey meat >6 slices of bread (whichever type tickles your fancy, I used a loaf of ciabatta) >Salt and pepper >Olive oil

Directions Layer and then grill on stovetop. Courtesy dansgoodside.com
