Coming Together to Raise Awareness for PTSD Shanine Sealey, Martensville Messenger

There are brave men and women from around the world that risk their lives every day to save others. When the call comes, everything is dropped so they can put their extensive training to work and maintain composure in some of the most unimaginable circumstances. Many of these brave individuals have spouses at home that worry each time they head out the door to an emergency situation, not only for their physical well-being, but also for how these situations will affect their loved one mentally. June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) awareness month, and the spouses of members of the Martensville Fire Department wanted to do something to bring attention to this disorder, which affects thousands of Canadians each year. With emergency personnel being most vulnerable to the effects of PTSD, experiencing twice the rate of the average population, it was important to the group to show their support and to help raise funds for those that are experiencing PTSD. “Various supports are available for people with PTSD, including family service agencies, mental health agencies, counsellors and therapists, family doctors, religious leaders and workplace employee assistance programs,” Terri Dyck, wife of Fire Chief Kurtis Dyck, explained. This year marks the first year that a fundraiser will be held among the spouses of the MFD to raise money for PTSD. “When the FireFit competition was confirmed, I wanted to use the opportunity to give back to our firefighters in some way; something for our brave First Responders. Then the Humboldt tragedy happened and my heart not only goes out to the family and friends of the victims but to the First Responders as well. I feel that raising money for Post Traumatic Stress is the answer,” Dyck added. As the spouse of a First Responder, Dyck realizes that mental health is a serious issue, and that people are hesitant to discuss it. “First responders are twice as likely to experience post traumatic stress disorder because of the traumatic situations they are exposed to everyday on the job. Bringing not only awareness but also help to those suffering from any type of mental health issue needs to be a priority. We want to raise money to help make that happen.” There are several organizations that work to help First Responders within the province with PTSD such as Saskatchewan Fire Service Critical Incident and Stress Management and the group is currently doing research as to which organization(s) will most benefit from more funding.

Thanks to the support of many local businesses, the spouses have organized an online auction to help raise money for this incredible cause. Major sponsors that have already come on board include; WestJet, Martensville Kinsmen Club, Wrench Fitness/ Crossfit 3126. Other businesses/ individuals that have supported their cause include; Canadian Tire, Shopper’s Drug Mart, SaskTel Centre, Saskatoon Fire Department, ClassC Artisan Boutique, Soul Power, Lindsay Wunsch, Delightful Pieces, Sherry Campbell, Redhead Equipment, Recyclized, Salon Exhale, WMW Home’s, JAGplus, Kim Matheson and many more. The online auction will begin on Facebook this month with items posted that will be available for bidding - details to follow. In addition to the online auction, the group will also be selling raffle tickets for one round trip flight for two to any regularly scheduled WestJet destination. Tickets are available for $10 each and can be purchased from any MFD member or their partner. If tickets are still available, they will be sold at the Sports Arena during the Firefit competition on June 2nd and 3rd. Those wanting to contribute can also purchase PTSD Awareness bracelets, Fire Hall Dalmatian stuffies (Adopt-a-Pup) and other special items at the Firefit competition or at The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, Puddle Jumpers Preschool, PAWS Republic, and Salon Exhale with a minimum $5 donation. A steak night catered by The Caesar Mill will also be held Saturday, June 2nd at the Martensville Curling Rink. Tickets can be purchased for $25 and include your choice of steak or chicken. For those interested in attending the steak night, or would like to contribute goods and/or services to this cause can contact, or (306) 227-2673. Although many items have already been received, more items are always welcome and items received following the online auction will be used to raise funds during the steak supper.

Martensville Library to Feature Local Author Shanine Sealey, Martensville Messenger

“If you could send a letter back in time to your newly-widowed self – that heartbroken, overwhelmed woman – what would you say?” This is the question that local author and editor Dianne Young asked and she received the answer from twenty courageous women of various ages from across North America that were widowed under various circumstances, and with these answers, Young created the book Dear Me: The Widow Letters. The idea behind the book came after Young found herself a widow in 2014 after 30 years of marriage. Following the loss of her husband, Young was unsure how she was going to continue on, as everything in her life was now different. Looking for methods in which to help her cope with the loss, Young turned to several books on grief and mourning, finding zero comfort in the words within until coming across one book that contained advice which resonated with her. This particular book noted that there is not a single person that has lost the same person that you have and that every person grieves uniquely. “Even if it is the same person, you’re relationship with that person is

different than anyone else’s. There are things you have in common, but you’re grieving is unique and I thought, the only person that can truly understand what I am going through, and what I have gonethrough, is me,” Young explained. It was here that Young had the idea for her book. “I thought, wouldn’t it be interesting to see what widows would say to themselves if they have a chance to. If you could write a letter and pretend you could send it back in time and you could talk to that person, what would you want to say?” Before asking others to write letters to themselves, Young knew she had to write one to her past self. It took approximately a year and a half after her husband’s passing, but she did it. From there, Young put out information looking for other widows to participate by writing letters to themselves and after receiving them, put them into an anthology. These women sat down and put careful time and consideration into writing heartfelt letters to themselves – letters of grief, of love and, most importantly, of hope. The letters within the book will resonate with other widows, who may recognize similarities to their own journey of grief, and can help provide friends and family who may be at a loss of what to say or do with assistance. The Martensville Library, whose staff takes pride

in highlighting local talent, will be hosting a book presentation on Tuesday, June 5th from 7pm to 8pm that will feature Dianne Young’s book, Dear Me: The Widow Letters.

Local Lions Club Prepares for Annual Dog Walk

martensville messenger - MAY 17, 2018 - Page 3

Shanine Sealey, Martensville Messenger

On Sunday, May 27th, the Martensville & District Lions Club will be hosting the 4th annual Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides. Each year, these walks take place across the country, and 100% of all funds raised go towards providing dog guides to qualified applicants at no cost. In last year’s walk, the Lions Club brought in over $12,000 and has high hopes to raise even more this year. There are six disciplines of guide dogs trained; autism, seizure response, diabetic alert, special service, hearing, and sight and training. It is a highly expensive necessity in order to provide dog guides for people requiring these services. “Dog Guides are specially trained service dogs which make a wonderful difference in the lives of people across Canada, providing safety, increased mobility, and greater independence,” organizer and Lions Club member, Doug Ward explained. Each dog guide costs approximately $25,000 to train from puppy to working adult and since 1983, the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides Program has been helping provide Canadians with guide dogs. The Martensville & District Lions Club has worked tirelessly over the years to bring this option to local families that require dog guide assistance. In recent years, the organization provided sponsorship to a Warman family in order to help them see life altering improvements with Ivan, the autism assistance service dog and they have hopes to continue to provide aid to other local families by raising money through the Walk for Dog Guides. “These fundraising efforts go to a great cause and we hope to be able to sponsor another service dog in our area. They are truly life changing for not only the individual, but for the family as well,” said Ward. The walk, which is a family friendly event open to everyone, will take place in Kinsmen Park, with registration beginning at 2pm, and the walk commencing at 3pm. Following the walk, there will be a BBQ. For more information on this event, or to register, visit The Purina Walk for Dog Guides has gained steady momentum over 30 years, last year raising more than $1,630,000 nationally. Thanks to lead sponsor Nestle Purina PetCare, 100 per cent of funds raised goes directly into Dog Guide programming, offsetting the cost

of breeding, training and placing Dog Guides, and allowing the organization to provide them at no cost to Canadians who benefit from their assistance. All walk participants will be entered into a draw to win various incentive prizes, provided by Purina Walk for Dog Guides sponsors, and a free barbecue will be held.

City Council Approves Art Installation for Kinsmen Park Shanine Sealey, Martensville Messenger

City Council held their last meeting of May on Tuesday the 15th. The meeting began with a report from each City Department with highlights from each area being acknowledged. Some items to note included; Dave Bosch, Director of Recreation and Community Services, would be retiring as of July 3rd and they have begun the recruitment process to fill the position; the City is preparing for their May 29th Open House; the Organics Composting program offered in Martensville currently has 112 subscribers – 32 more from last year; Ranch Ehrlo has taken over maintenance at the Martensville Cemetery; staff is preparing for the Aquatic Centre to open for June and swimming lesson registration has begun; bylaw will be working more evenings and weekends and patrolling more within parks to watch for off leash dogs and owners not picking up after their pets; the City is working with consultants to mitigate the lagoon odour; work is underway on pothole repairs and street sweeping; work has been continuing with Partnership for Growth; work is underway for the City of Martensville West Sector Plan and the majority of residents within the South Sector Plan have given consent for low level access to properties as part of the background studies. More information on the City Manager’s Report can be found at – City Hall – Agendas and Minutes. Council then moved onto a topic that was discussed at the May 8th Committee of the Whole meeting regarding the installation of an art sculpture within Kinsmen Park. The “Paddle Your Own Canoe” sculpture by Kevin Quinlan would be installed based on a three year lease plan for $1500 per year going towards the purchase of the item, with additional cost this year of $500 for transportation and $1800 for a concrete base. Upon the end of the lease period, the City of Martensville would have the option to renew the lease. The total cost of the sculpture is $25,000. Council was in favour of going ahead with the agreement and work will begin to have the sculpture moved to Kinsmen Park within the near future. Another item that was discussed at the May 8th meeting was the Economic Tax Incentive Bylaw Amendment for “The Scrub Auto & Pet Spa”. This business would consist of an eight bay wand car/truck wash, two pet washes, one RV wash and one touchless automated wash and if approved, would be the first major development located within the south industrial area of Martensville. Based on the plans for the business, the developer is eligible for a five year tax exemption. Council was in favor of approving this amendment and looks forward to seeing development within the south industrial area. The agenda included two discussion items. The first was brought forward by Dave Bosch in regards to the fountain located within the pond behind Sandy Rise. According to Bosch’s report, the pump for

the fountain that was removed in 2017 due to the fountain consistently cutting out. It was determined that repair is needed due to debris being sucked into the motor assembly, which would cost $5,800. Another option would be to purchase a new fountain, which would be a cost of $8,200; however, due to low water levels, the same issue could occur. Bosch recommended that the pond be dredged to help increase the pond depth, a cost of $50,000, a total which was cut from the 2017 budget. Council asked for more information on other options such as a smaller fountain and the cost of chemical treatment for algae. The second discussion item was regarding a request from the Regional Oversight Committee to

have an amendment made to the Partnership for Growth (P4G) Regional Land Use Map. P4G consists of Saskatoon, Martensville, Warman, Osler and Corman Park. The proposed amendment to the map would change a land designation within Corman Park from Urban Commercial/Industrial to Regional Infrastructure to facilitate consideration of a proposal from Loraas Environmental for a nutrient recovery facility. All Councils would be required to approve the proposed amendment, and if that does not occur, further direction would then be necessary. For more information on these items, visit, or contact City Hall at (306) 931-2166.

Flaws of Marijuana Legalization Submitted By: Quinn MacDonald, MHS ELA A30

High life will lead to low life in Canada. Marijuana is on the brink of legalization and the people of Canada fail to see why it will completely backfire on all of Canada. The Trudeau government has recently pushed the date back from early July to early August 2018. This breathing room will allow everyone to take a step back and re-evaluate this situation. Why make this legal drug more available when its usage has already doubled over the past decade? This law would not only be useless, but damaging. The dangers of marijuana use are extensive, but the most terrifying danger is its effect on a person’s decision making. The confidence it gives the consumer convinces them to get behind the wheel. With marijuana slowing reaction time by double, it is no wonder 28% of all road accidents happen while a driver is high. In comparison, alcohol only accounts for 15% of accidents. The Government should give their head a shake if they believe legalizing marijuana will benefit this country. Addiction is ugly and abusive. Everyday people are forced to carry this burden on their shoulders. Addiction traps a victim in its dark labyrinth with no map and no hope to ever become the way they once were again. By making marijuana legal, it is only going to make it more available and contribute to the scary fact that 30% of marijuana users become addicted, while teenagers are four times as common to become addicted than the average adult. Once a substance hits the shelves, age limit or not, teenagers will manage to get their hands on it just like alcohol. Do we really want our happy-go-lucky peers to become plagued with addiction? While you could argue marijuana would lower taxes due to the government selling the drug, it would make little to no difference. The people that would be funding this project would once again be the citizens of Canada. Besides, would you trade your loved ones for an extra dollar? If this drug were to be legalized, the dangerous problem of self-medication would only escalate. Often self-medication can lead to even more mental health issues than what the user intended to fix. This leads to a very dependent, mentally unstable community. A study conducted by Joan Bottorf even concluded that teenagers who thought they had a mental disorder (even though they did not) and used marijuana to fix it, led to a branch of other disorders through the continuous use of marijuana. All in all, marijuana is a negative drug that our society is not ready for. They say the grass is always greener on the other side, but once you’re on the other side, you’ll notice you could not have been more wrong. Enjoy the safe side instead of gambling your future for a legal high. We should make it our goal to keep this plague out of our country for as long as possible because marijuana would lower the functionality of our prideful country while putting everyone’s life in danger. Marijuana is a terrible influence, if you don’t believe me, ask the victims.

Tree Planting at VHS

Students, teachers and parents from Venture Heights School were busy planting trees on Friday, May 11th. These trees were adopted for $10.00, which went towards soil, stakes, watering and future replacement trees if some don’t survive. Trees will attract birds, which eat 366,000 bugs in one year, absorb 108,000 liters of un-drained water and remove 103.9 kg of CO2 out of the atmosphere per year.

Local Artist Releases Second EP Shanine Sealey, Martensville Messenger

Martensville resident Jonah Chivilo has been an unstoppable force since he was a child and that has paid off as he released his second extended play record (EP), “Too Many Thoughts” on May 11th. Prior to the release, “Unfazed”, a single from the EP, came out. Chivilo wrote, produced the beats and mixed the entire project on his own within his bedroom. This marked Chivilo’s second EP release within the year. Music has always been a big part of Chivilo’s life and from a young age, he knew that this was something that he wanted to pursue in life. “Ever since I was a kid, I have always wanted to get involved in some sort of entertainment platform. I used to make YouTube videos, but as I got older, I realized that my true passion is music.” Chivilo, who is currently nineteen, began taking music lessons in grade nine from local teacher Danny Downing. “Danny has played a huge part in helping me grow as an artist. He has watched me grow from a kid who couldn’t even really play a chord, to a guy who is producing and mixing his own tracks,” said Chivilo. Along with the lessons, Chivilo spent countless hours teaching himself new techniques and watching online tutorials to help improve his skills. With all of the time spent honing his skills and constantly striving to improve; Jonah notes that, “none of my small successes thus far would be possible without my friends

and family. They inspire me to be a better friend, son and human every day.” With this particular EP, Chivilo used his personal experiences as inspiration for many of the songs, which he says will give listeners a “deeper understanding of me, which is important as an artist.” He explained that the whole EP is a collection of thoughts from the past year; with “Unfazed” being inspired by not allowing negativity to affect oneself and “For the Better” coming from the growth of changing as a person and becoming a better human being. Chivilo’s music can be found on all streaming services; iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, Google Play and YouTube by searching the name Jonah Chivilo and clicking on “Too Many Thoughts”. With an unending passion to push himself, Chivilo is already hard at work on new ideas, with plans to release an acoustic version of “Too Many Thoughts” later this summer and he hopes to release an entire eight song album in 2019. In the near future, there will be merchandise available for purchase as well. To find more information, or to watch for updates, follow @JonahChivilo.

City To Investigate Affordable Housing For Seniors City of Martensville

LATEST phones GREATEST prices

Thanks to a grant from the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC), this summer the City of Martensville will conduct a feasibility study and create a functional plan to develop an affordable seniors housing facility in the community. The population of Martensville is generally quite young (according to Statistics Canada, the median age is 31.1), and dwellings that are appropriate for seniors, particularly as they age, do not currently exist in the City. “Our research with existing residents tells us that people live here because they love our community,” says Dillon Shewchuk, Community and Economic Development Manager for the City of Martensville. “We know that as people age they have more health care needs, and possibly less income, and because we don’t have affordable housing for seniors, they have no choice but to move. We want our seniors to be able to stay in their community for as long as they wish, but to achieve that we need to have an affordable housing with a care component included as well.” The $10,000 matching grant under the Encouraging Community Housing Options Program under SHC will be used to conduct a feasibility study that will determine things like facility size, level of care that could be provided, and services and amenities that could be included. A business plan will also be developed to determine the overall viability of the project in terms of cost. Once that information is available, the City can identify potential partners to construct and operate the facility. The idea of affordable seniors housing in Martensville is not new. “We’ve been looking at different models for seniors housing for the better part of a year,” says Shewchuk. “We’re now at the point where it makes sense to conduct a formal study, determine a location if it is feasible, finetune the details and start the development process.” While the City cannot comment on where such a facility would be developed, there is currently opportunity in the south east sector plan, which is City-owned land.

On LOCAL BUSINESS Serving Customers Better With a No Questions Asked Warranty and Much More Shanine Sealey, Martensville Messenger

There are numerous things that we see and do on a daily basis and don’t acknowledge just how important they are to our daily lives, to our homes and to our security. Rebeca Johnstone experienced this herself when renovating her home in Coderre, SK. The item that sparked interest for Johnstone was the blinds within her home. “During the renovation I contacted Budget Blinds of Moose Jaw to book a free In-Home Consultation. Budget Blinds came out ten days later. When they arrived, I was impressed with the entire process. That night, I told my husband about my experience with Budget Blinds. I went on to say that I wanted to own it,” Johnstone said. That desire created a passion and Johnstone pursued her dream by contacting the owner of the business one week following the installation of her blinds to see if they were interested in selling. “It took some time, but to my delight, I became the proud owner of Budget Blinds serving South West Saskatchewan.” Budget Blinds serves Saskatoon and all of Southwest Saskatchewan and since Johnstone purchased the business over ten years ago, she states that the team has placed focus on providing the best customer services and warranty within the industry. As of this year, the Budget Blinds brand has been in business for 25 years and is looking forward to many more years providing service to their customers, which includes FREE In-Home Consultations with no mileage fee. “Our design consultants are professionally trained and our installers are certified to bring you the absolute best in quality and service,” Rebeca added. With a total of fifteen employees, and constantly growing, Johnstone has not looked back since purchasing the business. In an industry that seems to constantly be evolving, Budget Blinds works hard to ensure they are at the forefront of ground-breaking technology. “A good example of this is smart-home compatible automated window coverings. The possibilities are endless, and we pride ourselves on being the experts in all things custom blinds.” Additionally, with their customers being the most important thing to them, they want to ensure that they provide the best service, products and warranties in the industry, along with competitive pricing that makes sense for each customer’s budget. “We will take care of you from the first phone call and for years after your blinds are installed. That’s our promise to you!” Consultants are often asked a number of the same questions from their customers, such as; Why Budget Blinds? - HIGH STYLE. PROFESSIONAL MEASURING. EXPERT SERVICE. Budget Blinds is the largest window covering company in North America, celebrating our 25th anniversary. We are proud to be

a locally owned and operated business and have been serving Saskatoon and Area for 10 years.

Call today to arrange your Free In-Home Consultation with one of our experienced Design Consultants.

What is the Best Blackout Blind? Depending on your style, there are a few ways to darken your room using blinds! Most styles of blinds have a ‘blackout’ option when liners are added or blackout material is selected. Cellular, or honeycomb shades are our top room-darkening options as they have the smallest deduction and side light gap than any other shade. To achieve the greatest blackout experience, adding blackout drapery panels on either side of the window to block the light will take the room to hotel heights! What Types Of Blinds Can You Put On A Patio Door? – Have you ever heard of a Panel Track? This is an innovative and beautiful way to cover a patio door. This type of shade has sliding panels that traverse over the wide opening of a sliding patio door, then stack beautifully to either side when open. Classic roller shades now come in hundreds of prints, patterns, and color choices. These shades make a great option as they roll up out of the way to ensure a clear view and walkway for the patio door. If you are trying to cover a garden door any type of blind can be installed directly on the door itself. With specialized brackets mounted at the bottom of the blind, it will be held in place to move with the door as it opens and closes- no loud banging or moving around as you come and go from your home. What Is The Best Blind For Insulation? – Hands down, the Cellular shade. Sometimes referred to as a ‘Honeycomb’ shade due to its pockets or ‘honeycombs’, making it the best recommendation on the market when heat or cold are an issue. The pockets work to trap air, keeping the cold air out in the winter and the hot air out in the summer. Give your furnace and air conditioner a break by adding these shades to your windows.With lots of addon options including top-down-bottom-up, cordless, and a wide variety of color options, these shades are a fit for the whole house! What Are Those Blinds You Can See Out But People Can’t See In? – Ahhh, magic fabric! In the world of blinds, that’s known as a Solar Shade. One thing to quickly note about these shades is they give the ‘appearance’ of not being able to see in during the day- but at night the effect reverses! The level to which you can see out during the day with these shades your neighbors can see in at night. While they work wonderfully to reduce heat, glare and UV damage to the interior of your home or business, these shades fall short in the privacy department. These shades are most suited for restaurants, office buildings, cabins, or any window that does not require privacy.

What Can Be Done To Cover An Arch Window? – So glad you asked- this is a common question! There are quite a few options available for any specialty shape you can think of- rake , arch, hexagon, octagon, and more! Our favorite recommendations include Window Film, Solar Shades specially cut to fit, or custom Shutters. The Window Films are graded on SPF and really do act like sunscreen for your windows. Enjoy the natural light along with your view while reducing harsh UV rays. Solar shades offer the same light and view options as the window film while offering a softer fabric feel to the window. Lots of solar shade fabrics can be coordinated with other shade materials to create a cohesive look in your home, or lake house. Shutters are always a classic choice and add architectural interest. What Is The Warranty On Your Shades? – We are thrilled to offer a fantastic limited lifetime manufacturer warranty with all parts covered for a minimum of 3 years and many parts covered for life! We also have an exclusive NO-QUESTIONS-ASKED warranty. It allows you one FREE replacement per shade for ANY REASON at no cost within the first 5 years (and in some cases, for life!). We like to refer to it as the ‘Pet-Kid-Party’ warranty because we find most of our clients are living in one to two of those stages of life! The best part- it all comes as a perk of doing business with Budget Blinds- with no additional cost to you! Can You Tell Me About Those ‘Stripy’ Blinds I See In Showhomes? – Those beautiful blinds are called Vision Shades. They are so versatile, allowing you to control light and privacy exactly how you want. Get all the light control of a horizontal blind with the minimal cleaning of a roller shade all in one. These shades always include a beautiful fabric-wrapped cassette valance to finish off the shade. There’s a reason you’re seeing them in show homes – they are the standard in beauty and function. What Is The Difference Between Faux Wood And Real Wood Blinds? – Our Signature Series Real Wood blinds are made from American hardwood. They offer an added level of insulation and due to their lightweight nature make a great option for covering a large window. We are proud to offer exclusive color options in both paint and stains. Faux Wood blinds are made of a plastic-like material and can be made to have a wood grain look or kept smooth. Faux Wood blinds perform well in high-moisture areas like bathrooms and above the kitchen sink. Easy to clean and low maintenance, they make a great economical whole home option. Will You Install My Blinds For Me Or Do I Have To Do It Myself? – Of course we will install your blinds for you! We will even show you how to properly use them and care for them. There’s a small fee for this, so if you want to save money you do have the option of doing it yourself, but that’s up to you. We’ve designed our business to be full-service so that you never have to lift a finger from start to finish, and it’s our pleasure to serve you in this way.

It would seem counter-intuitive, but the job of Opposition leader in Saskatchewan may now be a lot harder than the job of Premier. That shouldn’t make any sense because the premier bears responsibility for tough spending decisions. Oppositions can’t even propose spending bills in the legislature and the burden of being premier is much more complicated than that, extending the virtually ever tough situation - some of which he inherits and some of which a premier has no control. For example, immediately after being selected Saskatchewan Party leader and premier, Moe faced the aftermath of the Gerald Stanley verdict and the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. Both would have been exceedingly stressful for any leader. Sandwiched around these events was a provincial 2018-19 budget and then the inherited problems of former cabinet Bill Boyd’s Environment Act charges and the ongoing controversies of land purchases at the Global Transportation Hub (GTH). The above are inherited problems from the former premier Brad Wall’s administration. Moe and the Sask. Party may claim this is a new administration, but that really isn’t fooling anyone. Even if you are a new premier, you carry on with the baggage of your entire government. Maybe an opposition leader also inherits some baggage from the past when his party was in power, but the weight of that baggage is simply not comparable. All this said, it very much seems that in Saskatchewan right now, it’s NDP Opposition leader Ryan Meili struggling significantly more than Scott Moe and those with even a rudimentary knowledge of politics will understand why. For starters, while Moe competed with five others (notwithstanding Rob Clarke’s last-minute departure from the race) for the Sask. Party leadership and while it took five ballots including the first ballot in which Moe had less than 25 per cent support on the first ballot, he actually had the support of a majority of caucus members. Meili’s only competitor was Trent Wotherspoon, but the now NDP had the support of only one other caucus member. And that split and tension is a defining element of the NDP of late. In fairness to Meili, he has actually gone to great lengths to modify his policies to make them more palatable in Saskatchewan, but for most of the past 50 years, the NDP has struggled with the reality that they simply no longer are Saskatchewan’s natural governing party. Since the demise of the Tommy Douglas’s CCF in 1964, Saskatchewan has now spent more days under the rule of the right-wing alternative than under an NDP administration. This would include the last 10-plus years under the Sask. Party that enjoyed the biggest popular vote wins in the province’s history. Add to the fact that this province did not elect an NDP MP for 15 years prior to the 2015 election. (And judging by the way the federal NDP caucus has handled Regina Lewvan Erin Weir’s situation, the federal party may be in for another drought.) The point being, this is no longer an NDP province and what tolerance there has been for NDP governments in the last 50 years has been a result of them being comparatively pragmatic. Meili may have modified his positions, but he is still considered rather left wing. He supports a $15-an-hour minimum wage (a tough sell in rural Saskatchewan that has a lot of small businesses) and Meili has expressed some level of support for a carbon tax of some sort. Moe has been lobbying hard against the carbon tax and in support of the Trans Mountain pipeline opposed by the B.C. NDP government. And both those positions seem wildly popular with provincial voters. Sometimes, Premiers simply do have more favourable policy positions and that’s likely why Moe’s job seems a bit easier right now.

The Rush lacrosse team are once again the Western Champions as they won a close one 15-13 over their arch rivals, the Calgary Roughnecks on Sunday. It was a nice gift for all of the Mothers in attendance on Mother’s Day Sunday as the Rush won the nail biter. They took the Western Division final once again earning a spot in the league final. They are looking to three-peat as National Lacrosse Champions against the Rochester 18054WW0 Knighthawks. The Rush are once again in the league final and are looking to bring 18053WW1 home the championship that was taken from them last year from the Georgia Swarm. Rochester eliminated the Swarm last weekend in the Eastern Final. The Roughnecks started the second half with three quick goals that tied the game at eight. Robert Church found the net off the crossbar in a goal that was initially waved off. Coach Derek Keenan threw the challenge flag which paid off and the goal was good. This was the momentum the team needed as they found the net three more times. Calgary popped one in with .1 seconds left in the third. The Rush had a four-goal lead 15-11 after Defenseman Ryan Dilks forced a turnover and scored on the empty net with only three minutes to go in the game. The Roughnecks would not role over as Dickson closed the gap for Calgary 15-12. The Rush sent two to the box giving Calgary a 2-man advantage with only 1:25 left but were able to hold the Roughnecks off for the 15-13 win. The Rush have defeated Calgary in three of their last four Western Final match ups. The Rush will host the Knighthawks in the first of the best of three league final on May 26. Come out and support your Rush as they try to bring home another national title.

The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is finally in the books and it’s time for the Conference Finals. The Winnipeg Jets defeated the Nashville Predators to close out round two in a wild game seven that saw Vezina finalist Pekke Rinne chased just 10 minutes into the first period. Rinne allowed a pair of ugly goals that (in my eyes) weren’t his fault at all but being down 2-0 that quickly showed Nashville needed some motivation so I understand the decision. However, it didn’t help much as the Jets kept rolling and went on to win 5-1 and move on to face the Vegas Golden Knights. Winnipeg didn’t get much time to celebrate as they played game seven on Thursday, flew back home Friday, and got set for game one against Vegas on Saturday. That seemed to have little effect on the team though as they surprised the Golden Knights and took game one with a 4-2 win. Maybe it was having to wait so long for Vegas or the adrenaline hadn’t quite warn off from the game seven victory, but the Jets looked amazing. They scored just over a minute into the game and were up 3-1 by the end of the first period. Vegas is going to have to figure out how to brave the white out in Winnipeg if they hope to keep their historic first season alive. Since the Jets defeated the number one candidate to take home the cup, I’m picking the Jets taking the Western Conference Final in six games. As for the East, the Tampa Bay Lightning are going to have to kick it into high gear if my prediction is going to work out (Bolts in six games). They have fallen 2-0 in the series to the Washington Capitals and it seems like Alex Ovechkin is taking out his frustration of not making it to the Conference Final in his career. The Caps have exploded for 10 goals in two games (4-2, 6-2) and now the series is going back to Washington for game three.

About the Book

Dianne Young

Twenty courageous women of various ages, widowed under various circumstances, responded to that question with these heartfelt letters to themselves. They are letters of grief, of love and, most importantly, of hope. The letters express an “I know you don’t think you are going to make it, but you will” honesty that a widow could only trust from her future self.

Dianne asked the question:

The letters reach out to other widows, who may recognize similarities to their own grief journeys, but also to friends and families of widows who are at a loss as to what to say or do.

“If you could send a letter back in time to your newly widowed self – that heartbroken, overwhelmed woman – what would you say?”

11th Annual Ladies Night Round-Up Janine Hayward, Martensville Messenger

Well Giddy up and Yeeha! The Northridge Community Center was transformed into a Western Saloon theme at the annual Martensville Ladies’ Night on May 11. Around 250 ladies turned out to join in on the festivities. They were treated to a country and western theme with burlap centerpieces and a saloon photobooth. The ladies were greeted at the front to a complimentary cocktail as they entered the building. Many ladies were dressed in cowboy dresses, denim and cowboy hats. Paula and Steph, the MC’s for the evening started things off by selling tickets to a special VIP table where ladies were pampered. They received swag bags and products from Infinity Salon, Class C and free drinks as well as other surprises throughout the evening. Everyone enjoyed a delicious meal provided by Saboroso. There were over 50 silent auction items for the lucky ladies to win as well as a special wine grab. The committee also had a special draw this year for the door prize. Each lady was entered in to win the grand prize of a $500.00 Gift Card from West Jet and a bouquet from SAS Floral. This year’s winner was Jolene Dickson. There were also fun games to win extra prizes. The ladies had an opportunity to try their hand at some steer wrestling. Shayne Hayward was a good sport and held the steer while ladies tried to lasso the horns. The winner was Jaime Holowaty who won a basket donated by BMO. The highlight was the entertainment provided by The Gong Show. The live band had the ladies kicking their heels up all night. The planning committee, Paula Johnston and Steph Succi did a wonderful job making sure the evening was fun for all of the ladies. They were very thankful for the hard work and volunteer time put in by all of the men who were waiters, bartenders, ticket sellers and everyone else who helped make the evening a success. They made the night special for all of the ladies. Thanks also to all of the many sponsors. Without your support we could not put this event on. The committee was very pleased to donate a portion of the profits to the scholarship fund at MHS for three young ladies who are avid volunteers in their community. They are also giving a portion to the newly formed Martensville Neighborhood Watch and the Martensville Free Pantry. A portion of the money will be set aside for a surprise donation that will be announced at a later date. Thank-you from all of the committee for supporting this year’s 11th Ladies Night. This might be the last year for this committee so if anyone would like to step up and take over next year please let us know. All the committees have made this ladies night a big success over the years and hopefully many more memories to come. Special Thanks to our Gold Sponsor, ‘The Beach,’ who donated $1300.00 in gift cards and products for the tables and silent auction. They would also like to thank their Silver Sponsors; Infinity Salon and Spa, Lucky Bastard Distilleries, Affinity Credit Union, JP Massage, Warman Home Center, Canadian Linen, and the Martensville Messenger.

Amazing Race Challenges Participants Jocelyn Ottenbreit, Martensville Messenger

Eight eager teams met at Mini Mountain on Saturday, May 12 to await instructions for the third annual Martensville Amazing Race. The City Recreation Department sponsors this fun event that involves the whole family. Teams raced through businesses all around Martensville to solve a series of six clues as a team. Their first destination was at the Martensville Fire Department where team members had to do skills such as roll up a fire hose and wash a fire truck. As in the TV show, teams had to perform the tasks properly or were sent back to complete it. They were sent around to places like the Lions Park, Wrench Fitness and the Map to participate in some fun activities. “This is my favorite event to plan. It is so fun to work with different community groups and businesses. This year we were able to partner with the Martensville Fire Department, Wrench Fitness, Air Cadets and the Canalta,” stated Karly Russin, organizer of the event. “All teams came back with huge smiles on their faces and had a blast with nothing but good things to say about the event.
