The Moose Jaw International Medical Mission visits Guatemala each year to provide medical assistance to those in need in that country. Once again, fundraising efforts have begun to support its upcoming 2019 trip to Guatemala. This will be the fourth year the Medical Mission is traveling to Guatemala to provide medical support. The Medical Mission is a team of volunteer nurses and doctors who volunteer their skills to provide medical assistance to those who need it the most. The team of volunteers pay their own way for the trip but raise money throughout the year to provide surgical supplies and prescription medications to citizens of Guatemala. The Medical Mission will be hosting the first of several fundraisers to come, starting on Saturday, July 28 when they will have the Gardens for Guatemala self-guide tour. The tour will be from 10am to 3pm. Jackie Wilson, coordinator for the Mission says this event will allow persons to tour some of the most beautiful gardens around Moose Jaw. “This is our first time doing Gardens for Guatemala. The budget to go is about $40,000 that we have to raise over the course of the year. All our volunteers on the team pay their own way there. The money we raise is to cover the cost of all our surgical supplies and medications,” Wilson said. “What we do is that we take a team of medical professionals to Guatemala each year. In February 2019, it will be our 4th trip going there. We work at a little hospital there where we cater to persons’ medical needs. That’s what we raise the funds for to take surgical and medical supplies there to carry out our mission. Gardens for Guatemala is one of our fundraisers that we we’re going to have,” she added. Tickets for Gardens to Guatemala are $25 and can be purchased at Ellen’s on Main and Hudson’s Boutique. You can also call Melissa at 306630-9705 or Maggie at 306-750-2002 for tickets and more information on the event. “Once you get
your tickets, you’ll also receive a map of some of the beautiful gardens that persons have allowed us to tour. These are private gardens that persons will be touring—a self-guide tour around the city of some of Moose Jaw’s most beautiful gardens,” noted Wilson. Wilson says on their 2018 trip in February, they were able to see over 600 patients. “The trip was incredible. We were able to see about 600 patients with our medical team and we were able to do 35 different surgical cases. The people we worked with were suffering for a long time without proper medical care and so when we can show up there and offer them a chance to be healthy again, they are extremely appreciative and they’re thankful that we would take time out of our lives to go there and provide this service. It is rewarding and we learn a lot from them.” Wilson added that the team is always looking for more sponsors and businesses to support the Mission. Persons/local businesses can contact the Moose Jaw International Medical Mission for more details if they would like to become sponsors. “We always welcome more sponsors and businesses to support our Mission. We are definitely looking for more corporate sponsors for our team. On our upcoming trip, this will be the first year that we’re going to be takin a team to do health promotion as well; we have a team of handy men/women who will be accompanying us to install safe and efficient stoves and water filters into some of the locals’ homes so we welcome any corporate sponsorship.” For more information, visit the Moose Jaw International Medical Mission at https://www.facebook.com/ events/2076686052608111/?ti=icl.

Moose Jaw Ford donates portion of profits to 15 Wing Fellowship Sarah Catterick
Moose Jaw Ford held its grand reopening last month, pledging to donate a portion of all profits in the month of June to the 15 Wing Fellowship. The 15 Wing Fellowship supports military families and aims to strengthen relationships between 15 Wing and the city of Moose Jaw. On July 17th at the Ford dealership General Manager Shaun Airey presented the $5000 cheque to Aaron Ruston in order to help families at 15 Wing. For its part, 15 Wing Fellowship contributed to the

three-day community grand reopening, by providing a pancake breakfast and barbeque. Airey believes that Moose Jaw Ford needs to partner with local organizations like 15 Wing Fellowship. “When we came to Moose Jaw we felt it was important to be established in the community and to be giving back to the community because that’s a big part of who we are. To be able to give the families of 15 Wing a cheque representing some of our profits from this last month means a lot to us; we are giving back to the community and doing the right thing in Moose Jaw.” Going forward, Moose Jaw Ford wants to continue partnering with local organizations including 15 Wing Fellowship. “It’s a really important part of our business so we hope that we can create ongoing partnerships.” The grand reopening event also offered customers the chance to win great prizes. During the month of June, anyone who purchased a vehicle was entered into a draw for the chance to win a SEA-DOO. The winner was Mike Vandenberghe of Moose Jaw. Airey was excited about the giveaway saying, “It is important that our customers are even happier today than when they bought their vehicle. This is one way we can facilitate that.”

From Our Family To Yours
KELLY & BLAIR SCOTT
Parkview Funeral Chapel, 474 Hochelaga St. W, Moose Jaw, SK, S6H 2G9
Jones Funeral Home and Parkview Funeral Chapel unite to offer more to the community Sasha-Gay Lobban
W.J. Jones and Son and Parkview Funeral Homes have joined forces to provide a wider range of services and support to the Moose Jaw community. The funeral homes held a BBQ at Parkview Funeral Chapel on Friday, July 13 where they celebrated their official union and introduced their new relationship to the community. Their union means that the two funeral homes are now operating under one umbrella, following an official purchase of Parkview Funeral Home by W.J. Jones and Son. The two are, however, reassuring the community that this will not affect whatever plans they had with either funeral homes prior to the amalgamation. Instead, the two homes now have a wider range of services after pooling their resources together that they can now offer the community as one. General Manager at W.J. Jones, Dayna Chamberlain, says this union ensures that the community’s needs are met on a wider scale. “WJ Jones has purchased Parkview but their name is not going to change nor the facilities. Basically, Parkview is now part of our umbrella and we’re all going to work together. For families that have concerns in relation to pre-planning for example, with Jones or Parkview, this means that their plans are still completely the same as they were before. However, persons have more options as to what they
(l-r) Kelly and Blair Scott along with Dayna Chamberlain. Photo by Wanda Hallborg can do,” Chamberlain explained. “With our joining together, both of the funeral homes under one umbrella, we have so much more we can offer. We have more staff, different facilities and services we can offer now. For the public, it is a ‘winwin’ situation. They are still going to see the same faces at Parkview, whether at their location or ours. For the community, they’ll see that a lot quicker than they might have thought.” She further explained that Jones has always had a working relationship with Parkview and this union makes it offi-
cial. “With this joining, we’re getting to work together with our friends. That’s the exciting part about this move. We’ve always put the community first in what we can offer; we listen to what the community needs are for funeral services and I think that now we can provide for those needs together and provide so much more to them,” Chamberlain added. “With us joining together, the gaps we’re able to fill are wider because these are two different facilities that offer a range of services. For example, Parkview has a facility with a chapel attached as well as a reception area
and large parking. Jones on the other hand, also has a chapel and parking but we have a reception center off site that’s smaller. Therefore, with these resources that we have pooled together, this gives us the opportunity to have services in a chapel setting in either location and an opportunity to have celebrations of life that people want in a more intimate facility or a larger facility.” Kelly and Blair Scott, Directors/Owners of Parkview, echoed the same sentiments, describing this union as a “marriage” that has long been in the works. “This is like two groups of friends coming together, almost like a marriage. We’ve been working together for 10 years back and forth; sharing cars, staff, people and we’ve done everything except join our business. We are now looking forward to a different type of relationship but we’re still doing the same things,” said Blair. “As we continue to offer our services and more, people will get comfortable seeing us together. Our idea is to mesh our staff together so that there is a flow from one facility to the other so that individuals get the care that they expect, whether at Parkview or at WJ Jones. We want persons to know that it is the same people they know; we’re all coming together and working well to provide that quality care and compassionate service that we always have,” added Kelly.
Hope Summit returns for second staging: Inspiring Hope Sasha-Gay Lobban
Two years ago, Moose Jaw’s Hope Summit was held for the very first time and this year, it is back again to inspire hope through a full line-up, which includes four powerful speakers set to share their stories of triumph through struggles. The 2018 Hope Summit will be held Saturday, November 3 at 1:00pm at the Moose Jaw Public Library and Museum Theatre. The Hope Walk, which is also part of this event will take place on Saturday, September 2 at Crescent Park, starting at 10:30am. Spokesperson for Journey to Hope, Della Ferguson says this year’s Summit has some new features that will inspire attendees. “In 2016, we hosted our first Hope Summit, and from that experience, we have listened to our attendees and made some changes that we hope will serve the event, and all who attend,” she said. “We have added music, through the talent of Nicholas Hennink, who is in collaboration with Jared Robinson of Nebulus Entertainment, creating a song project we call “Hope Sings.” This project is a collaboration of Journey to Hope Moose Jaw/ CMHA Moose Jaw/CMHA Sask Div. to honour the 100th Anniversary of Canadian Mental Health Association. I
have had a sneak preview and was amazed at the production so far. This song will be released to the public on World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10, 2018 along with a short teaser video of the song; and Nicholas will be sharing the song “live” at the Hope Summit 2018.” This year, persons will get an opportunity to hear from four speakers who will provide inspirational personal stories. “We are very excited to work with the four speakers,

offering them support as they prepare for their presentations. Once again, these stories will be recorded, and will be compiled into our Hope Summit 2018 Legacy Project. We did this in 2016 and the feedback has been tremendous as people are able to peruse the videos of the speakers in their own home at their own time. People have told us they have watched all of the videos several times. We also created curricula/and self-reflections for viewers to utilize for deeper reflective opportunities,” added Ferguson. Fittingly, this year’s topic will be “Inspiring Hope.” Ferguson says the topic is “far-reaching, as are the many and varied stigmas that people are being faced with that have kept the theme constant, visiting it with a new set of speakers who will offer their individual inspirations, and adding the musical dimension.” This year, Hope Summit also has a new logo created by Lana Lalonde of Emerald Vibe Creations and Hope Summit committee member. Ferguson says the logo is a perfect reflection of Journey to Hope’s mission. For more information, visit www.hopesummit.ca.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Freezer-burned ice cream melts under sauce
Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express
W h e n Housemate said one day in early July that he was going to pick saskatoon berries at a u-pick berry farm south of Moose Jaw, I knew there would eventually be work in-
volved for Yours Truly. Don’t get me wrong: I love saskatoons — fresh from the bush, either wild or domestic, in pies that someone else bakes, in jams and jellies purchased at the farmers’ market, and in sauces poured while still warm over a large dish of chocolate ice cream. Saskatoon berries have been part of this Prairie person’s life since being old enough to tag along with the male parent, under fences and into the pastures around the community where we had permission to make ourselves at home on these private properties. I had my pail tied around my neck with a kerchief, but for some rea-
Home Sweet Home
son seldom had it filled to the top for the journey home. My purple face and teeth explained the reason, although I sincerely denied the personal consumption of more than a handful. In those days I wasn’t responsible for the after-work, that of sorting and canning for the family’s winter enjoyment, this being pre-deep freezer in every home. But I watched the other parent do all the necessary preparations for “putting down” dozens and dozens of jars of fruit and sauce. My help involved licking the sauce spoons and scooping out a bit of ice cream over which we poured the still warm sauce. Pure delight. In our first house on Coteau Street we made friends with the behind-us neighbour who told us about his secret spot for finding the best berries in the area. We gave him a ride there and then tromped for what seemed a long time through the summer fallow to reach an unimaginable source of large, purple berries just asking to be picked. And so we did, bringing home two large pails each and then wondering why we picked so many. We shared but it became evident that some preparation for winter would be required. I opted to make pies. When I was done, I had 30 pies lined up on the counter, ready to head
to our basement freezer, for consumption when the snow fell. We made the trek another couple of years but then the bushes were plower under and it wasn’t nearly as much fun picking at a berry farm as it was being out in a pasture, despite the threat of snakes and skunks wanting to have a visit. So Housemate made this year’s trek to the berry farm and came home with an ice cream pail not quite full — he had missed the start of the berry season but the berries were still tasty and he filled his nightly treat bowl to the brim. But then the rest sat in the fridge, and I suspected he had a reason for letting them sit. He knew I wouldn’t be making a pie, but he was happy to accept my offer to make a sauce to go on some ice cream. So the sauce was made, even though I had run out of starch, and we didn’t have any fresh ice cream. But we found some long-forgotten Dixie Cups covered in ice crystals and smothered them in a hot berry sauce. And just like in olden days, I licked the spoon after Housemate left the room with his homemade saskatoon berry sundae. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net
SaskPower profit tripled last year, debt levels approached limit By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

For the seventh year in a row, SaskPower did not pay a dividend to the Saskatchewan Government last year. Each year since 2011, the crown corporation has been exempted from paying the dividend to conserve cash for the growing need to replace aging transmission lines and build generation capacity. The annual report for the year ended March 31, 2018 notes the corporation invested $5.41 billion over the last five years on capital projects. The power utility has debt equal to 74.9 per cent of assets. A debt level over 75 is considered unacceptable for a utility. Long-term debt increased to $5.6 billion from $3.6 billion over five years. Shortterm debt is $1.14 billion. Last year the corporation paid $435 million in interest costs. Profit for the year tripled from $56 million to $190 million as revenues increased 7.6 per cent to $2.58 billion. Last year the utility advanced construction of the $680 million 350 megawatt natural gas power plant at Swift Current, continued work on the $231 million transmission line from Pasqua near Moose Jaw to Swift Current, completed proposals for 210 megawatts of wind and solar projects and completed $380 million of upgrades to aging transmission infrastructure. The focus for the coming year, aside from reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 40 per cent of 2005 levels by 2030, is meeting challenges of new federal emissions standards. SaskPower has asked Sask. Environment to negotiate flexibility to meet carbon dioxide emissions. Since startup in 2014 the carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) plant has captured two million tonnes of Co2. The plant was supposed to capture one million tonnes annually. The corporation has announced that plans to build CCS units in other coal-fired plants have been scrapped. The corporation continues feasibility studies for CCS at the Shand station in Estevan. Coal-fired generation plants are scheduled for phase out by 2030 under new federal regulations. Coal fired generation capacity led last year at 43 per cent with gas fired generation at 36 per cent, hydro at 15 per cent, wind at three, imports at two, and other sources at one per cent.

Across Canada in just 66 days Sarah Catterick
Long distance runner Dave Proctor passed through Moose Jaw on July 14th on day 18 of his attempt to run across Canada in just 66 days. The current record is held by Al Howie, who ran across Canada in 72 days. Proctor, along with a group of local runners running this stretch with him, were welcomed into the friendly city with a fundraising barbeque and meet and greet by Mayor Fraser Tolmie and MLA Warren Michelson outside the host business, Staples. In order to break the cross-Canada record, Proctor must maintain a steady running pace of 108km a day. Although this will be a personal victory for Proctor, he is also running for something he knows is far more significant. Proctor’s run will raise awareness and funds for the Rare Disease Foundation in order to create better lives for individuals who are living with a rare disease, like Proctor’s son, Sam. Rare diseases affect 1 in every 12 Canadians. Proctor says, “I knew I could run across Canada in record time so I thought it would be the perfect way to raise money for the Rare Diseases Foundation. At the same time, people like things that are out of the ordinary, things that make you say, “Oh wow!” and that’s within my wheelhouse right now. This is my way of drawing attention to this important cause.” While Proctor is well on target to beat the cross-Canada record and raise over one million dollars for the Foundation, it has been both a mental and physical challenge for the ultra-runner. “The hardest part so far was getting through the first week. Your body is screaming at you to stop the whole time and it’s a struggle until it finally realizes that you aren’t
much more aware of it. It brings a very human element to it and when he brings this story into communities like this, we all have the opportunity to learn more and be able to support the cause.” Proctor admits that the best part about running across Canada is the people that he has met along the way. “I have really enjoyed seeing our amazing country and meeting Canadians across the nation. Especially in smaller towns, I have met such wonderful people, and I love getting to talk to them.” To follow along with this exciting world record attempt, go to outrunrare.com. The site includes a daily tracker to show where Proctor is and provides an opportunity to learn more about Rare Diseases and support the important cause that Proctor is running for.

going to stop and it gets into the rhythm and adapts. It’s going a lot easier now and running has become a routine. You get up in the morning and get to work.” Proctor will continue to stop at Staples stores along his route to fundraise for the Rare Diseases Foundation. Local Staples General Manager, Tony Brennan, was excited to host Proctor as he passed through Moose Jaw. “I am so pleased that we were able to welcome Dave to our store today. We are the Friendly City and we certainly showed that today by having such a warm welcome for him. When we are able to interact with our community like this, we take the business outside these four walls.” Brennan summed up the collective sentiments of all those who came out to meet this inspiring individual. “It was a real privilege to meet him. The mental battle every day that he faces is a testament to his character, dedication and commitment to the cause that he is running for.
Personally, I didn’t know anything about rare diseases before this but now I am

68-Year Old â€œGuinness World Recordâ€? holder seeks second record as she bikes across Canada Sasha-Gay Lobban
Dr. Lynn Salvo, 68, is seeking to set her second world record as she bikes across Canada, following a similar journey she embarked on in 2016 when she biked across the United States of America. Dr Salvo stopped in Moose Jaw on Monday, July 9 where she visited the St Andrewâ€™s United Church to take a picture at a peace monument. In addition to setting a new record and having the title of oldest woman to bike across Canada, Dr Salvo is supporting the Canadian Friends Service Committee and promoting peace. On June 18, she began on the Pacific Ocean (Tofino, British Columbia) and plans to arrive 4000 miles and 70 days later on the Atlantic Ocean (Lawrence Town Beach, Nova Scotia) to complete her mission. Salvo set her first Guinness World Record in 2016 by cycling 3163 miles oceanto-ocean in the US. With this ride, she hoped to demonstrate that â€œwe can do so much more and for so much longer than we think we can.â€? Salvo was featured on Guinness World Recordsâ€™ Facebook Live channel. The interview can be viewed at: bit.ly/LWSGWR The theme of Salvoâ€™s 2018 ride is â€œworld peaceâ€?. She details the choice of her theme on her blog at www.lifeislikeabike.
Dr Lynn Salvo. wordpress.com. She plans to visit a peace monument in each of the eight Canadian provinces through which she will cycle. Her ride will support the Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC) and the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC). Dr Salvo says she loves big challenges and that was the inspiration for her rides. â€œI like really big challenges and projects and I was really inspired to do something of this magnitude. Iâ€™ve done the United States and I thought, â€˜what would be the next big challenge in a beautiful country
that is safe to travel in?â€™ My next-door neighbor Canada came to mind.â€? She says it took over a year to plan this 2018 ride. â€œI started planning and applied to Guinness Book of Records to attempt a new record and title. I studied Canada and the route Iâ€™d have to take for over a year. I had to get well prepared for this journeyâ€”I rode well over 6,000 miles this year prior to this ride, in the winter time and I had to get the details of my route figured out. That took a long time to figure out because thereâ€™s not an established
route because there are a lot of ways to go across Canada. Iâ€™ve read several books and a number of blogs to see how people did it.â€? So far, she says the ride has been great as she meets other riders along the way, locals in different cities and visiting peace monuments. â€œIâ€™ve done over 1200 miles so far and it has been great. The weather has been cooperating and Iâ€™ve met the most wonderful people on my journey. I find that Canadians are very welcoming and accommodating here. Iâ€™ve been in Saskatchewan for three days and I love this province. The land is pleasantly beautiful, and I get to interact with a lot of people.â€? â€œMy theme is peace and I find that a lot of people have shown interest and support for this peace initiative. Ultimately, I hope to create a peace sign, the size of North America with all my rides. Iâ€™m also supporting the Canadian Friends Service Committee through this ride. Anybody who is interested in donating, can also do that while following my ride,â€? Dr Salvo added. You can follow Dr Salvoâ€™s journey at www.lifeislikeabike.wordpress.com.

New novel depicts coming of age in the prairies Sarah Catterick
Alberta-based writer, Corinne Jeffery, has published a new novel set in the prairies of western Canada. Lords and Lepers is a novel set in Manitoba, which tells the coming-of-age story of four young girls in the prairies. Lords and Lepers follows Francine, a young girl on Prince Edward Island whose parents disappear during a boating trip. Taken in by her family from Manitoba, Francine starts her new life on the prairies, meeting new friends and maturing together. The novel, described as an â€œepic prairie saga,â€? tells stories of friendship, heartbreak, and joy following the main characters into adulthood in the 1960â€™s and 1970â€™s. While all the characters are fictional, Jeffery aimed to make them as real as possible, using Canadian history as the backdrop. â€œLong before I started to write, I wondered where the really good stories about the real Canadians were. One of my objectives when I started writing was to immortalize the real, ordinary Canadian. Everyone tells me that my characters are relatable and I think that itâ€™s because I have based them off real people and real experiences in the Canadian West.â€? All of Jefferyâ€™s stories so far have been set on the Canadian prairies. â€œItâ€™s what I know,â€? she says. â€œI have always been an avid lover of Anne of Green Gables. I can remember when Anne wanted to write about Egyptians and far away lands and Gilbert said to her, â€˜Why donâ€™t you write
Oh Clarkâ€™s â€˘ pressure washers â€˘ rentals â€˘ grasshoppers
Corinne Jeffery about what you know?â€™ and that is very sound advice. I have spent my entire life on the Canadian prairies and my writing follows my path.â€? A clear theme through Lords and Lepers is the continuity of life on the prairies that many Saskatchewan residents will relate to. Jeffery says, â€œI think everyone can relate in some way to it, but I think those who live in the middle of the prairies can relate to it even more.â€? It has been more than four years since the prairie author
released her Understanding Ursula trilogy, books that gained Jeffery her fanbase. She has been asked many times to expand her popular series. However, Jeffery explains that continuing the series would take it too close to the present day and her own current experiences. â€œIn my trilogy, I wrote about myself. All the characters had characteristics of myself or people that I knew. I decided to do something completely different with Lords and Lepers and challenge myself to see if I could create characters completely out of my imagination and still have them be relatable.â€? The story was never going to be long. â€œIt was just supposed to be a short coming of age story about four girls, and I just found the characters to be so engaging that I kept writing and writing and now the story takes them right through to adulthood. I actually debated bringing it out as a series but I had so many people who didnâ€™t want to wait. You cannot bring out a trilogy in a year. Thatâ€™s a lot of writing.â€? Jeffery says, â€œUltimately, I just wanted to write a compelling story with compelling characters. I want to take ordinary people and make them extraordinary in the way they live their lives.â€?

Local nurse to run marathon to raise support for national charity Sarah Catterick
Local nurse Kate Sullivan will be running a marathon in Portland, Oregon this October to raise funds and awareness for ‘I Got Legs’, a national charity advancing mobility technology and empowering those affected by disability to live their best lives. Sullivan is excited about the cause she is running for. “As a Registered Nurse who works in the operating room here in Moose Jaw, I am able to help people with acute issues that affect their lives. Supporting this organization allows me to support people once they have left my care in the hospital and are dealing with the everyday realities of their situations long term.”
“We see people in the operating room but we often don’t think about what happens after that. It’s a way for all of us to support people after they have left our care.” -Kate Sullivan

said he would never walk again but this all changed when Gorlitsky received a ReWalk Robotic Exoskeleton. This mobility technology changed Gorlitsky’s life and he began his charity to raise funds and awareness for others who could benefit from this technology. A chance encounter with the founder of ‘I Got Legs’ inspired Sullivan to support the organization in any way she could. “I had already decided to run a marathon and I knew I wanted to run for a cause, but I
Natural gas heating/cooling prices could decline, then increase By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express
Profits and revenues increased for the provincial natural gas utility SaskEnergy in the last year. Profits jumped 48 per cent to $104 million for the year ended March 31, according to the crown corporation’s annual report Revenues were up 5.2 per cent to $503 million as customer accounts increased by 3,700. The boost in revenues came with a colder than normal winter and spring with warmer summer and fall. The corporation predicts a less profitable year from the current year if the weather stays normal, estimating a $68 million profit. Costs decreased last year by $15 million with one-third from efficiencies in processes. The $39 million dividend to the province increased by $10 million, representing 28 per cent of profit compared with 41 per cent of profit in the previous year. The average residence paid $529 for the year compared with $500 the year before, but the utility says Saskatchewan has the fourth lowest rate in Canada.
didn’t know which one. I was on vacation with my mom and I had a completely chance meeting with Adam and I learned a little bit about his story and what his organization does. His passion for what he was doing struck a chord with me.” Sullivan says, “Doing this makes me want to support others who are raising money for worthy causes. I never saw the amount of effort and passion that goes into doing something like this.” This will be Sullivan’s second marathon. “I never thought I would run a marathon again, and it certainly was hard to get motivated but I’m very excited this time. The first time I just winged it with hardly any training. This time though I’ve researched it a lot more and I’m following a training program. It’s a lot more work than I initially thought.” As an OR nurse, Sullivan has received support from the doctors and nurses she works with. “We see people in the operating room but we often don’t think about what happens after that. It’s a way for all of us to support people after they have left our care.” To learn more about the great cause Sullivan is running for go to www.igotlegs.org . Sullivan will also be organizing a bottle drive and raffle in the Moose Jaw area to raise funds for I Got Legs. Donations can be directed to www.gofundme.com/kate-runs-for-igot-legs.
Lower gas prices in response to increased supply is the outlook for next year but the crown corporation cautions a buildout of natural gas-fired projects in North America may increase prices in future years. SaskEnergy isn’t allowed to make a profit on natural gas but has made money in risk management, buying and selling futures contracts, earning $62 million last year, a 37 per cent increase. Capital expenditures of $775 million over five years are planned with $330 million in new debt. The rest will come from earnings. The utility has $1,232 million in net debt, up by $22 million. The corporation started on a multi-year project to move high pressure lines away from residences in Regina and Saskatoon. And $109 million was earmarked for projects ensuring integrity of the 85,000 kilometres of pipelines. About 31,000 of the 373,000 new smart meters have been installed.

Which side is right in the controversial carbon tax discussions? There are at least two sides to every controversy and the carbon tax debate is no different from any other controversial aspect of life. In Saskatchewan, the provincial government has chosen to strongly oppose the carbon tax planned for next year by by Ron Walter the federal government. The Saskatchewan Government sees no merit in collecting a carbon tax and distributing the money to those most affected by the tax — farmers, oil industry and low income earners. That idea stems from a belief that money made should stay in the pockets of the person making the cash with a little removed for taxes to run essential government services. The Saskatchewan government also does not believe a carbon tax will do the job of reducing greenhouse gas emissions – gases considered by an overwhelming majority of scientists as a threat to future human life on the planet. Since Canada produces only three per cent of global emissions, how can a carbon tax without general
global adoption make any difference? Pro-carbon tax advocates say this is like the fable about the mice belling the cat. If none will bell the cat, the cat will keep killing mice at its whim. To bolster the Saskatchewan government’s case against the dreaded carbon tax, a study was commissioned from the University of Regina. The study found the tax will cost the economy $1.8 billion a year, end many jobs and cost every household more. Within days the study was torn apart, first by Liberal cabinet minister Ralph Goodale, an ardent carbon tax supporter, then by analysis by independent economists. The number one complaint: the university was one-sided by ignoring what would happen if the $2 billion annual revenue were distributed by cutting taxes, supporting those industries and persons hurt the most, or invested in technology combatting climate change. It was like saying you are broke by the big mortgage on the house but not counting money saved on rent payments. That was a government funded study — or was it fake news? The real issue in the carbon tax debate revolves around whether the tax will reduce emissions from

coal and oil use. The jury is still out on that issue. Both sides claim they are right. Opponents of the carbon tax claim the tax in B.C. did not work, simply because fuel use and emissions increased. Advocates of the tax use the B.C. experience to claim the tax works. Their claim suggests the tax worked because the economy grew at a nice rate. Without a tax, more fuel would have been used. Each side has merit but neither has overwhelming evidence for its case. Now that the Saskatchewan government has realized the relatively new $1.5 billion carbon capture technology is no longer economic, the leadership needs to adjust attitudes and work with the feds on the best deal for the province. And please start being more honest with taxpayers when funding studies. The feds have work to do on this file as well. The feds need to release already completed studies on what the tax will and won’t do. Ron Walter can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

City administration to review snow removal policy Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
The City of Moose Jaw will be reviewing a trio of engineering and infrastructure policies in the coming months, with the winter maintenance policy – along with the road repair and water and sewer capital construction division – coming under review to seek improvements and efficiencies. The winter maintenance review will cover all aspects of snow removal and ice control on local streets, including timelines for clearance, as well as flood mitigation measures in the spring. Coun. Chris Warren brought forth the motion, saying feedback from the community and his own personal experiences with winter driving in Moose Jaw drove him to ask for the review. “We should be able to embrace winter conditions rather than fear them,” Warren said. “We have it six months of every year, and it creates challenges for people all ages and ability. So we need guidelines in place to ensure the safety of the transportation network and that people can get into work safely as well as allowing our citizens to enjoy recreational activities whether there is snow on the ground or not.” Some of the issues Warren has heard about include the amount of time it takes to clear snow, the lack of snow clearing on nights and weekends, the general lack of snow clearing on residential roads after a major snow event, snow pack which inevitably leads to rutting and challenging conditions for vehicles, lack of clarity with what the city does when it comes to snow and lack of communication on snow clearing efforts. One of the major issues was the lack of information for the public when it comes to which roads are cleared first. No such information is available online, and Warren himself was only able to find a black-and-white scan of the road prioritization map. “One of the things in the policy is that the current guidelines aren’t accepted in the community when it comes to getting the snow off the street,” he said. “Obviously when someone can’t get down a street, particularly a primary road, it causes stress and creates negativity in the community and affects people on a day-to-day basis.” Currently, priority one roads like Main Street and Ninth Avenue are to be cleared in 72 hours (three days). Priority two roads such as Coteau Street West and Caribou Street have a 108 hour (four-and-a-half days) window and all other streets are cleared if rutting exceeds 10 centimetres (four inches), but only if traffic is significantly hampered. Improvements to that system will be one of the things the potential new policy will look at, and in doing so with regards to all winter issues, city engineering was asked to research other municipalities dealing with similar problems. “Some have been here and done that, some are behind us, some are ahead of us, some have well-established practices,” Warren said. “Finding out what works and what hasn’t and tailoring our approach for our municipality is the best way to go.” Coun. Dawn Luhning relayed a personal experience when it came to dealing with snowfall in the city, referring to a heavy storm on a Friday where clearing didn’t start until the following Monday. “Snow clearing and removal has been a thorn in my paw over the years because it seems like we get those one or two major storms a year and we are just crippled as a city,” she said, adding that she herself helped push a vehicle stuck on Athabasca Street in the aftermath of that snowfall. “After one of the major storms, the mayor was on tv, apologizing that the city wouldn’t be cleared in the next 72 hours, that it would take five days instead of three, I thought ‘wow, we haven’t even started yet, and we have significantly less people [than Montreal or other larger cities that contend with these kind of storms, too],” Luhning said. “So something needs to be done and I’m willing to talk about it and try and figure out what it is we can do to make it better.” City manager Jim Puffault said city administration would look at the policy in the near future and have
improvements in place before the coming winter. “We might not be able to answer everything right away, but there are some major issues that we need to address,” he said. “My office will help to try and get some polls from other communities and give us some direction for this fall and this winter and we’ll go forward as we go from there. Puffault pointed out that while improvements may be possible, they might come at a cost that will lead to some tough decisions down the road. “If we have to move from five-and-a-half days to two days, there are resources that are required for that... so we’ll see what standards are in other communities and come back to council with a list of options that council can choose and say ‘yeah, we’ll go with this’ while understanding there will be some costs attached to it,” he said. “We’ll work towards that in the report and bring something back before the snow flies this year.” For breakdowns of the road repair and water and sewer capital construction division, catch the next issue of the Moose Jaw Express.
Coun. Chris Warren delivered one of his three policy review plans during the July 9 meeting.

Retired Climate Scientist rides across Canada to study climate change

7/5/2018 10:31:21 AM
David Goodrich, from Maryland United States, stopped in Moose Jaw on Monday, July 9 as part of his cross-Canada ride in a bid to study climate change in Canada. Goodrich is a retired Climate Scientist who has also travelled across the United States as part of another study about climate change in the U.S. He authored a book called: The Hole in the Wind: A Climate Scientistâ€™s Bicycle Journey Across the U.S., 2017. Goodrich is seeking to do the same in Canada as he cycles across the country, visiting two of the major oil sands in Canada to also collect findings. â€œI started in Fort McMurray and rode across Alberta and Saskatchewan and will move on to other provinces,â€? Goodrich said. â€œThe reason for this ride is that Iâ€™m a retired Climate Scientist and Iâ€™m riding across Canada to look at climate change. I rode across the U.S. as well, to look at climate change, having studied it for over 30 years. For this ride, I thought, â€˜where does climate change come from?â€™ and two of the biggest frontier oil fields in North America are the oil sands of Fort McMur-
ray and the Bakken Field in North Dakota. The same ocean created both of themâ€”the same ocean that once was over the top of Saskatchewan. So, I wanted to visit the oil sands, right across the ocean and go to the Bakken Field in North Dakota, as well.â€? He said he wants to author another book on climate change presenting his findings on Canada and the people he has met along the way. â€œUltimately, Iâ€™m interested in writing a book about it and about the people Iâ€™ve met and what Iâ€™ve seen along the way. It will be very interesting to see the data that Iâ€™ll collect because there was a recent boom in 2011/12, especially as oil prices go up so Iâ€™m looking forward to visiting the Bakken fields as I did in Fort McMurray. I wanted to go cycling to places where carbon is coming out of the ground on both sides of the border to see what those places are actually like, thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m ultimately after.â€? â€œIâ€™ve met some amazing people along the way who have also showed me around a little bit,â€? he added. Goodrichâ€™s ride will end on July 21.
Appreciating & Protecting Our Waterways
Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North
Warren Michelson, MLA
Lakes and rivers are a critical part of a balanced ecosystem. They are home to hundreds of underwater species and support migratory and local bird populations. From paddling a kayak on the Moose Jaw River to fishing at a northern lake, our waterways provide a tremendous variety of attractions and recreational opportunities. In the drier climates of our province, waterways provide irrigation that increases the diversity of crops that are grown. Our lakes and rivers are the source for water treatment plants that supply water to the majority of Saskatchewan residents. However, our waterways, lakes and water supply sources are at risk of aquatic invasive species. Zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species can be impossible to eliminate if they become established in a waterbody and can cost millions of dollars to manage. They pose significant threats to infrastructure, hydropower facilities, wastewater plants, irrigation systems, fisheries and aquatic habitat, rec-

reational activities, tourism and property values. Zebra mussels have been found in Manitoba lakes and in the northern U.S. bordering our province. The Ministry of Environment is taking action and has implemented a number of policies to prevent aquatic invasive species from entering Saskatchewan. It is important that the public be aware and take precautions when transporting watercraft from out of province. Prevention is of the utmost importance. Our government has focused on public awareness through education and targeted signage about our Clean, Drain, Dry program, roadside boat inspections, decontaminations and regular monitoring of Saskatchewanâ€™s waterbodies. Inspection efforts last year resulted in 1,212 watercraft inspections and provided invasive species information to 872 watercraft owners who entered Saskatchewan from the United States and Manitoba. Three hundred and seven received detailed inspections by conservation officers and 119 required decontamination. We have increased our decontamination units from two to six. The ministry plans to significantly increase the number of inspections across the province with the inspection program. To date, no invasive mussels have been found within Saskatchewan. It is now mandatory for individuals transporting boats on all public roadways to remove drainage plugs prior to transport and to submit to inspection

when passing an inspection station. I am currently attending the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region (PNWER) conference. At the conference, I will be representing the Government of Saskatchewan and our plans to prevent quagga and zebra mussels from entering into the Saskatchewan water system. Public awareness and intergovernmental cooperation is essential in preventing the spread of invasive species into our province. Saskatchewan partners with provincial organizations, Canada Border Security Agency, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and provincial governments in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and the Yukon to co-ordinate prevention on a regional basis. I have distributed information on Clean, Drain and Dry your boat to our local boat dealers and reminders can be seen at many boat launches and fish cleaning stations around the province. There are informational pamphlets at the constituency office and details on correct practices can be found at online at Saskatchewan.ca by searching Clean Drain and Dry Your Boat. I am confident the boaters of Saskatchewan will work together to protect our waterways. Our actions will reach far beyond our own borders. As I participate in the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region 2018 Summit, I will encourage continued and increased intergovernmental cooperation so we can always enjoy the benefits of Saskatchewanâ€™s 100,000 lakes and rivers.

Motion passed unanimously for creation of a water and sewer construction division at City Hall Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The city of Moose Jaw could see a whole new department developed with a specific mandate of dealing with underground water and sewer infrastructure. Coun. Chris Warren brought forward a motion at the most recent meeting of city council to analyze the financial implications of developing a water and sewer capital construction division to aid in both water main replacement and deal with the constantly rising number of water main breaks. The plan directs city administration to look into such a project from a wide variety of angles including benefits of internal departments vs. contracted services, labour requirements, cost analysis, duties in the off-season, hiring seasonal employees vs. permanent employees as well as how much of an increased capacity there would be to respond to water breaks. Warren began his presentation by pointing out that the city is now in year three of a 20-year-plan to replace cast iron pipes, and in that time two different contractors have performed the work, which led to new learning curves, process differences and communication processes with the city and community. With an in-house department, the city would see an increased capacity to respond to water breaks as well as have crews that would work on the capital water replacement program that is currently 100 per cent contracted out. “Whether the water break happens in the summer or
winter, the city could mobilize to deal with water breaks faster than they can now,” Warren said. “We could also address breaks at multiple locations which would prevent water from running freely. “Taking on the capital renewal program, which is fully funded, local crews would gain experience and expertise year-after-year, improving efficiencies and lowering costs and having a skilled and trained workforce to carry out these very important plans.” Coun. Brian Swanson supported the motion, but with caveats – that no new equipment be purchased and that the department be seasonal, as well as seeing the overall project expanded significantly, to $11 million a year, in order to increase the current 2.3 kilometre per year rate of main replacement. “I’d like to see three projects in the city during the construction season,” he said. “One might be on South Hill, one might be in the northwest, one might be in the downtown area. Two of those could be private contractors and I would support a city crew on the third.” Warren concluded his motion by commending the city for the rapid-fire rate at which the water replacement program has taken shape in recent years and expounding on the benefits a dedicated department could create. “The city of Moose Jaw has made major advancements in improving underground infrastructure to address the lack of investment in renewal in the past, and the city administration must be commended for what they’ve achieved
in the last number of years,” he said. “This plan would expand our capacity and our ability to deal with water breaks as well as effectively delivering on the never-ending commitment to replace water mains; it’s the next logical step in securing the safety and effectiveness of our water distribution system.” City administration’s plans for the project will begin with the development of a comprehensive business case with the goal of having a basic idea of how the department might work by the time the next budget planning sessions roll around. “We need to find ways of increasing the amount of work we’re able to do,” said city manager Jim Puffault. “We contract out quite a bit of work and sometimes things can be done in-house in a more effective manner when it comes to engineering design and those things... This is a great opportunity, I’ve seen communities where the entire amount of work was done in-house because there are some cost savings that can be realized.” “This is a great chance to think outside the box and put together a business case that could accomplish this project. It’ll take some time to put together but at least by budget time we should have an idea how this could work... there are incremental steps we can take to get to where we want to be and if we lay out that final plan then it’s something council can say yay or nay too.” The motion passed unanimously.
Former Moose Jaw journalist writes guide to the Yucatan Sarah Catterick
Former Moose Jaw reporter, Regis Yaworski, has published his third Amazon e-book, a light-hearted travel guide to Mexico’s Yucatan district. The Newbie Gringo’s Guide to The Yucatan, published on the Kindle platform, praises the Yucatan as an ideal retirement spot or winter haven for its welcoming, peaceful and extremely affordable lifestyle. Its capital city, Merida, ranks as one of the most attractive cities in North America and consistently scores the lowest rate of violent crime in Mexico, the US and most of Canada. Yaworski thinks that everyone should visit the Yucatan area. “Even though there are now thousands of Canadians and Americans either living or wintering in Yucatan state, it’s still relatively undiscovered and Regis Yaworski eminently affordable. It’s safe, friendly and comes with an extensive expat support network.” Even though Yaworski confesses that he was never a fan of Mexico, his determination to find an escape from the cold northern winter and a recommendation from a friend led him to explore the intriguing state of Yucatan. “As I aged, I built up an increasing aversion to winter. To this day, I love Saskatchewan for multitudes of human qualities, the people, and the landscape. The same is true of Prince Edward County in Ontario [where I lived for a time]. Once winter, snow, sleet, bone-chilling winds and ice get their grip on the landscape, ‘natural’ is no longer attractive.” Of course, finding somewhere warm is not the only factor that played into Yaworski’s decision. “Not everyone can afford to retire to Victoria, the Okanagan, or Arizona and the price tag on those popular havens continues to climb. On the international scene, Panama, Costa Rica, and even Belize aren’t the bargains they were even five years ago.” The Yucatan, as Yaworski describes in his guide, is a place where “limited finances stretch far beyond mere subsistence.” Yaworski identifies Canora, SK as his home town. He completed high school in Kamsack, SK before joining the Times-Herald as a reporter trainee in 1962. He was promoted to city editor five years later. Since then Yaworski has held editor positions in Guelph, ON and Brampton, ON. He transferred to the education sector, teaching in colleges before his retirement in 2006. Currently living in Ontario, Yaworski is a member of the International Travel Writers and Photographers Alliance and American Writers and Artists Inc. and continues to take courses in writing and Spanish. Yaworski’s did not intend Guide to The Yucatan to be a mainstream travel guide. Rather, the pages are filled with things people visiting the Yucatan will likely wonder about and outlines the cultural nuances behind them. But Yaworski does not have any plans to write more travel guides. “I’m working on a work of fiction based in the Yucatan.”

Our sincerest apologies to Saskatchewan NDP leader Ryan Meili and the Meili family on the misspelling of the Meili name in Volume 11, Issue 20, July 18, 2018 on Page A23. Please note the rerun of the story below with the proper spelling.
Meili settling in as Saskatchewan NDP leader Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
investing the revenue that’s coming in and diversifying our economy.”
Carla Beck, MLA for Regina Lakeview, and Saskatchewan NDP leader Ryan Meili were in Moose Jaw during Sidewalk Days.
Meili won the leadership race for the Saskatchewan NDP this March becoming leader of the official opposition and was back in Moose Jaw recently to share a recap of how things are going so far. “It’s always good to come home. We are on tour this month, we’ve already been to North Battleford and Ituna and a bunch of other towns east of Regina. We’re sharing a bit about the issues we’re concerned about and continuing our work as opposition, pointing out what’s wrong with the current direction as well as building our own platform and the message we’ll be putting forward in the next election.” With only a few months since he was named to the position, Meili has hit the ground running when it comes to dealing with the long-time incumbent Saskatchewan Party government. The opportunity to attempt to hold their feet to the fire has been one of he and his party’s main focuses since taking over. “I’m getting more used to it all the time, coming out of the leadership race I wanted to make sure we’re all on the same page and I was really impressed with how the MLAs stepped up and did a great job,” Meili said. Coming out of the first session, I feel we have some real wind in our sails.” There’s plenty to deal with, too, especially when it comes to the current string of struggles the province has found itself in. As great as things were in the recent past when it came to revenue and finances, the current situation is dire, says Meili, and there’s plenty of work that needs to be done. “It’s a project of righting the ship after a decade of record revenue, we now have record debt and increasing cuts in pro-
grams and increasing struggles in our economy,” he said. “Unfortunately the NDP often finds itself cleaning up the Conservatives mess, and while it would be nice to form government when things are going well, the mess needs to be cleaned up and we’re ready to do it.” Making things all the more exciting for the NDP is that the word on the street is increasingly leaning toward change – Regina Lakeview MLA Carla Beck, who accompanied Meili on his Moose Jaw visit, has heard plenty of people say it’s been long enough and the current situation isn’t tenable. “There’s a real appetite for change,” Meili said. “People are tired of the Sask Party; the Sask. Party themselves are tired, they don’t have a lot of new ideas. Now people are really examining closely and are looking for a change, the challenge and opportunity for us is to start presenting what that change looks like and putting forth the ideas that people will see as the right path down the road.” Should they find themselves in power, the NDP aren’t blind to the current financial situation the province finds itself in and will be looking to work on making sure it doesn’t happen again. “We’d like to see the resource sector doing better and we’re hopeful that will happen, but we also need to be stop being so reliant on a single sector,” Meili said, adding that the vulnerability the province finds itself isn’t new, with Saskatchewan’s strength fluctuating with the international commodity market. “It’s a cycle that’s repeated itself and perhaps the most frustrating thing about the Sask. Party is that they acted like the boom was here forever instead of
As an example, Meili pointed to the cuts to advanced education funding the province has seen in recent budgets. Funnelling money to institutions of higher learning instead of away could see the province less and less dependent on the resource sector. “That’s where you start to see innovation come in with growth in the tech sector and the service sector, but they’ve actually starved those areas and focussed on sectors that really leave us vulnerable,” Meili said. “One of the things that’s going to be part of our economic approach is seeking opportunities to invest in areas that are long-term, sustainable and bust-resistant.” The next provincial election is set for November of 2020 and will feature an angle that hasn’t been tested in over a decade – Meili isn’t the only newcomer on the block, as Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe is also a recent leadership
race winner, taking over from the retired former – and wildly popular – premier Brad Wall. “There’s no question Brad Wall was very popular and quite capable of articulating the message they had,” Meili said. “It will be interesting to see how people respond to Scott Moe. There have been a lot of changes with the new premier, but what Moe said that I found really striking is that there’s basically just been a re-arranging of the chairs. There’s no change in the vision or the approach. The have the same tired, old plan. “It’s a chance to define ourselves as leaders, but also for the NDP to more clearly define what our vision is and our plan for the future,” Meili continued. “While we’ll spend the due amount of time pointing out the failures of the Sask Party, the more we’re able to articulate what we see as the possibilities ahead the greater our chance will be to be successful.”
Carbon taxes and pipelines – the NDP has plans Much discussion in the media at both the federal and provincial level as of late has revolved around the issue of carbon taxes, with the provincial government firmly and strongly against the implementation of any such financial penalty for producing greenhouse gases. While Saskatchewan NDP leader Ryan Meili would prefer to focus on issues like cuts to education, health and social services, that’s not to say his party is ignoring the situation. “The reality is carbon pricing is coming, the government has put in place their plan and the reality is if we aren’t in compliance with a plan designed here, we’re going to have to be in compliance with a plan designed in Ottawa... because all they’ve been able to say is no, we’re going to get something that’s far worse than something that’s made in Saskatchewan,” Meili said. The best solution, he said, is one that decreases emissions, protects the economy and keeps prices low. The answer wouldn’t be easy, but the NDP feels it could be done. “We need a made-in-Saskatchewan solution,” Meili said. “That’s possible, but only if we actually do the work.” Another major issue has been the ongoing discussion surrounding oil and natural gas pipelines. Interestingly enough, the NDP and Sask. Party find themselves partially on the same page when it comes to the delivery systems – with the major difference being how to deal with them. Meili would prefer to keep the work local and improve the current infrastructure as opposed to seeking out new development, especially in light of current trade tariffs put in place by the Trump administration and how they’re already starting to hurt the province. “One of the things that concerns us in particular is the folks at Evraz, who build pipelines, in Regina and employ a lot of folks,” Meili said. “ There’s 70 cars full of steel headed for the U.S. that isn’t going there, it’s stuck in Moose Jaw railyards because of Trump’s tariffs... so there’s challenges to in-country work and challenges in the extremely important U.S. market.” The Sask. Party plan would be to use such resources to repair and improve the 100,000 kilometres of pipeline currently in place in Saskatchewan, much of which is nearing 50 and 60 years of service. “So we’re looking at a best-before system where you look at how old the pipes are and what they’re carrying and start developing a replacement schedules,” Meili explained. “While we’re doing all that employment work, we’re also protecting the environment by preventing spills like we’ve seen in the province recently. “The biggest difference for us is that we want to do it in an evidence-based way, where we’re looking at every project and make sure it makes sense economically and from a social point of view where the communities have good lasting jobs and it’s done in a way that’s environmentally responsible.

Family squabble over money threatens stability of global alliance Different families have different ways of transferring wealth and culture from one generation to the next. In some families, wealth and culture is easily shared with the younger generation, according to need and opportunity. Sharing is a form of love for these families. Senior family members tend to bear a bigger load of family costs. In other families, transfer of wealth and culture is strictly a business matter. If the kids need money for a downpayment in a house, they borrow it and repay with interest. If the kids want to buy the family farm or business, they pay market price and arrange their own financing. The western countries after the Second World War became like family, united in efforts to re-build war-torn European economies, thwart the spread of Communism and build democratic traditions. The United States, by default, became
head of the NATO family merely from its military power and burgeoning industrial economy. As the head of this family, the United States paid more than its share; be it the billions in the Marshall Plan to re-build a tattered European economy, the cost of NATO defences, cost of the United Nations, the cost of the World Trade Organization. Given the fear of the Communist Empire and the need to preclude another Hitler from rising, the United States was only too happy to assume the role of father and global police chief. That was over 70 years ago. The world is a much different place now. Europe has become a rich and powerful bloc with an economy to match. The constant threat of a Communist Russian Empire has been reduced considerably. The Chinese free enterprise/state Communist empire is the biggest eco-
nomic/military threat to other countries today. In these circumstances, an increasingly frustrated America sees a loss of economic power and the immense cost of maintaining global military clout. The solution for the business-minded President Trump is to cut costs. Make the other rich countries pay a fair share of defence costs of the United Nations, the World Trade Organization. The United States spends most on defence â€” 3.5 per cent of national income compared with 1.2 per cent by Canada. In his single-minded cost-cutting approach, Trump cares not at all that â€œfamily relationshipsâ€? are damaged, even irreparably broken. Following through on his outrageous bargaining demands, his threatening and bullying tactics, Trump throws his weight around like the proverbial bull in a china shop.
He isnâ€™t sensitive to the future impacts of his demands on othersâ€™ feelings or Americaâ€™s already shoddy reputation. Only his TV ratings matter. Under slightly different circumstances 75 years ago other nations might have united to defeat this character. His successors will need a generation to undo the harm Trump has dome to Americaâ€™s diplomatic relationships. Meanwhile the global family is left wondering just what significance Trumpâ€™s connections with Russia have in terms of Russiaâ€™s desire to once more be a big world power again. The question arises: Is Trump working for his own glory, Americaâ€™s glory or Russiaâ€™s glory? The curse by Confucius â€” may you live in interesting times â€” seems to have been cast on us.

Surprise, surprise, wheat acreage exceeds canola plantings By Ron Waltern For Moose Jaw Express
The impact of tariffs EXPRESS by India on pulse crops is portrayed in the seeding acreage reports for this year. Acres seeded to lentils is down 17 per cent this year to 3.76 million acres as India charges a 50 per cent tariff on imports. Saskatchewan lentil producers cut acreage by 550,000 to 3.34 million acres. Statistics Canada data shows Canadian dry pea acres

fell 12 per cent to 3.6 million while Saskatchewan pulse growers cut peas by 16 per cent. Oddly, chickpea acreage almost tripled to 469,000, a possible reflection of higher prices and a growing North American market. Wheat has exceeded canola acreage this year with Canadian farmers boosting wheat by 10.4 per cent to 24.7 million acres. In Saskatchewan, wheat gained 14 per cent to 12.9 million acres. Canola acres, meanwhile, dipped 1.1 per cent to 22.7 million. Canola farmers in this province cut planting 420,000 acres to just under 12.3 million. Across Canada, barley acres went up 12.7 per cent to 6.5 million while oats acreage fell 4.6 per cent to 3.1 million acres. Saskatchewan barley growers jumped acres by 15.8 per cent to 2.7 million but oats producers cut acres 15.4 per cent to 1.4 million.

Animals Dig It!
I dig to bury bones. I have plenty of food, but I think it’s still a way for dogs to keep other dogs from taking their food. Have you ever watched animals to see what they do? Have you noticed a squirrel digging to stash acorns? Or a bird pecking the ground, pulling out a worm and carrying it away to a nest to feed baby birds? Animals dig to: • find food • hide from other animals • make a shelter • travel • hibernate or sleep • hide food to keep for later during the cold months • have their young

only end their crow meeting when I would appear in the yard. The nest in our tree was a busy place and even though one crow generally looks like the next crow, there seemed to be more than two parents feeding the three chicks, which means a lot of aunts and uncles. I felt sorry for the clan of crows when I found 2 of the 3 chicks, dead, at the bottom of the tree. They seemed to have some flight feathers and may have fallen while fledging…or was it murder! Crowicide! Did the surviving chick “nudge” his nest mates over the edge of the nest? If only I could speak crow I would investigate. Sadly, the death of 2 chicks in the crow community did not stop them from having their daily 4:40 AM meetings and some of the neighbours began some random anti-crow campaigns, usually at 4: 41 AM, which entailed them yelling through their bedroom windows for the crows to “Shut the %&#$up”. More than a few times those yelling neighbours were encouraged by other neighbours to “shut the &%$# up” themselves, and that only seemed to encourage the crows to take part in the entire bedroom window debates. I was inspired by the early morning debates and began to build a scare-crow to frighten and hopefully terrify the murder of crows in my yard. The arms and legs were foam pool noodles with some thick house wiring stuck though for pose-ability and with a pair of long-johns and a hockey jersey the

There Goes the Neighbourhood
They are the loud neighbours that can be heard all over the block every morning. When they moved into my yard, I honestly thought about murder…murder of crows that is. I have been entertained by crows and their intelligent antics by Dale “bushy” Bush for years. I even dreamed about having a pet crow once but when the neighbourhood murder of crows expanded and moved into one of my trees for this springs nesting I couldn’t decide if it was a good thing or bad. Good for the nearness of entertainment and sharing the land with Mother Nature, but bad for the noise and the raiding and claiming my garden as their own. I have tried to reason with the crows. At one point, I believed I was actually communicating with them with my near perfect imitation of their cackling caws but something might have been lost in the translation because, instead of them moving down the road to the next block as I had asked (in crow), they seemed to feel comfortable in my back yard. In fact, they seemed to be so comfortable in my back yard they were holding crow meetings and daily briefings at 4:40 every morning and would
only thing missing were hands (gloves), feet (boots) and a head…hmm. Where would I find a head? I went to the thrift store looking for a head shaped object ready to paint as a head and when I found 2 old beauty shop training heads for a twoony each, I knew this was going to be a fun project. With my hockey jerseyed, long-john wearing newly headed scarecrow, which was enhanced with sunglasses and a ball-cap, posed sitting in an old lawn chair holding a hockey stick he was indeed…scary and realistic. In fact, he was so scary and lifelike he frightened the cat, startled Mrs. B a few times, gave me a few starts and when our old neighbour next door was holding a conversation with him, I knew he was realistic, but the crows had a different idea. The evidence was the crow poop on the scarecrow’s ball cap. Message received and the battle continues.

Moose Jaw hosts SSFA 55+ Seniors Provincial Games Sarah Catterick
Seniors from across Saskatchewan descended on Moose Jaw for the 55+ Provincial Games hosted by the Saskatchewan Senior Fitness Association (SSFA) July 10th – 12th. The last time Moose Jaw hosted the 55+ Provincial Games was in 2006 and the city was eager to welcome the event back this year with a wide variety of competitions taking place all over the city. Crystal Froese, co-chair of this year’s 55+ Seniors Games, worked diligently to make this event a success. “We have been organizing this for 18 months. The host committee has been meeting almost weekly for the last six months. It moves around the province, so we
are very excited to host it here in our city this year.” Over 700 participants from all over the province took part in track and field, swimming, bowling, 8-ball pool, golf, pickle ball, slo-pitch, tennis, and other tournaments competing for the chance to qualify for the Canada 55+ Games, held this August in New Brunswick. To qualify for the provincial games, competitors must take part in a regional event, which is held every year while the provincial and national events are held every other year. Froese says, “It’s a real compilation of a lot of different types of activities -- everything from track and field to bowling and other card games. The participants range in age from 55 years old to our oldest competitor this year who is 99 years old. Essentially the goal is to promote an active lifestyle for seniors in this province.” Margaret Gailing, Provincial Games Advisor, says one of the best parts of the games is the relationships that are built during the competitions. “It is an exciting event and people enjoy com-

ing to participate and to see the people they have been competing with all of these years. For me, all of the participants are really inspiring.” A great example of the inspiring nature of the games is the Men’s 100m participants, Daniel Listoe of Moose Jaw and Jim Sangel of Assiniboia. Sangel says, “I started running in these events because I saw an ad in the paper and I thought ‘why not?’ I started running when I was sixty. I’d never run a race in my life before I competed at my first games in Humboldt about 14 years ago. I recommend that everyone just try it out! I never would have known that I would enjoy this as much

as I do.” Listoe agrees saying, “I coached my whole life and played a lot of sports, but I only started training for running a few years ago. I’m glad I did.” “There is nothing like starting the race and crossing the finish line.” Sangel laughs, “I don’t like the in-between so much though!” For other participants, the 55+ Seniors Games is a social event, as well as a competitive one. Local competitor, Jim MacIntyre enjoys the friendly nature of the event, especially in his 5-pin bowling tournaments. “I love making friends here at the games. For me, it’s all about the social aspect. It doesn’t have to be competitive. There are also so many different things to get involved in. If you can do something, you can be involved in these games.” Jacqueline Laviolette of Swift Current also enjoys coming to the games. “It gets you moving and out of the house. Moose Jaw is a really great place, everyone has been very welcoming during these last few days and I can’t wait for the next games.” The final results have not yet been posted but continue to check this link at: www.ssfa.ca/programs/ssfa_55_ games

Moose Jaw’s Swenson Wins SSA Mixed Singles Shuffleboard Tournament Dramatic final shot sees 91-year-old local competitor claim championship at 22th annual event Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
Don Swenson would have liked to have closed things out a little earlier in the championship final of the Saskatchewan Shufflleboard Association mixed singles tournament on July 19 at the Timothy Eaton’s Centre. As it turned out, Swenson found himself down early and spent most of the contest sitting on 15 points trailing finals opponent Jim Brock of Yuma, Arizona. That all changed when a timely eight-point frame gave him a 23-19 lead heading down the stretch. That’s where the score would remain, even after Brock’s final shot required a review by the head referee and was so close that it took some time to make a judgement. The potential shot’s value? Seven points. In the end, it was waved off and Swenson claimed victory. Don Swenson is 91 years old. “It’s quite a bit of luck, twice I could have lost, especially right at the end there,” Swenson said with a laugh. “It was a quite a game.” The 24th annual edition of the tournament featured a total of 53 players, down from the usual 70-plus the event sees, but
for good reason – many who would have been shuffling in Moose Jaw this week were instead in High River, Alta. for the International Shuffleboard Association world championships. “We’d have liked to have seen more players, but that’s just how it worked out,” said event organizer Milly Molloy. “There was still some really good competition and we’re really happy to see Don win, the past three winners now have all been 90-years-old or older now.” Swenson – who was cheered on by his wife of 69 years, Dorothy, herself 93 – is a regular shuffler at the Cosmo Centre club and entered the tournament just to have a bit of fun over the three-day event but he just kept on winning. “There were a lot of good shufflers here, but they say if you live long enough, good things happen,” Swenson said. In spite of his longevity, Swenson hasn’t been taking part in the precision sport very long. He and Dorothy started playing the game around 15 years ago when they started going to the Cosmo Centre. “I didn’t really get into it right away, though,” he said. “I played a lot of slo-
pitch and curled quite a bit and that really helps. The first thing you do in curling is go out and read the ice and after that it’s just weight. Then with shuffleboard it’s a lot like that.” Regina’s Harold West took first place in the ‘B’ side while Swift Current’s Laurie Silbernagel claimed the ‘C’ title and Claude Wasman of Vernon, B.C. the ‘D” championship.

Fins win ManSask long course small club championships Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
NEXT SCRATCH & SAVE DAY
IS TUESDAY, AUGUST 7 th
The Moose Jaw Kinsmen Flying Fins attended the 2018 ManSask inter-provincial championship swim meet in Saskatoon recently and not only did they bring home a total of 24 medals from the elite competition – including nine gold, three of their swimmers won their respective age group titles and the club ended up winning the overall Top Small Club award. “It was pretty awesome,” said Flying Fins coach Laura Harvey. “These guys have been working pretty hard and their times have been coming down consistently throughout the year. I guess it wasn’t too much of a surprise to me; the younger swimmers Kate Waldenberger and Katie Olson, they really stepped up and did something impressive. You might not see it in their results, but they both took off a ton of time and moved up in the rankings, so you’ll definitely be seeing those two names a lot in the future.” Chloe Johns won the 12-and-under overall award for Saskatchewan swimmers with gold in the 50 metre breaststroke, 100m breast and 200m breast to go along with bronze in the 200m individual medley and 400 IM. “She’s been doing really well and working really hard and it’s great to see that to see her having that kind of success,” Harvey said. Danael Liew turned in as commanding a performance as the Fins have seen at recent ManSasks, claiming gold in the 13-and-under boys’ 50m breast, 100m backstroke, 200m IM and 400m IM along with silver in the 50m back, 100m butterfly and 200m back. That was good enough to claim his provincial age group, as well as the overall individual high point award. “He swam with his heart; he’s been working really hard in practice and
he’s a talented swimmer,” Harvey said. “He put in the work and it really showed in the results.” Cadence Johns continued to make strides in the 13-14 girls age class as she won the age group with wins in the 200m IM and 400m IM, silver in the 200m back and bronze in the 100m back and 200m breast. Olivia Harvey, who recently moved up into the 15-and-over age class and took to the pool against 18-year-olds in Saskatoon, managed to medal in the 200m freestyle despite the much older competition. Waldenberger had 100 per cent best times and took an impressive 10.34 per cent off her 50m backstroke time. The piece de resistance for the weekend was the overall small club championship, which saw the Fins rack up 1,215 total points despite taking to the pool with only 12 swimmers. Their total was better than that of larger clubs that had double or even triple the number of swimmers, with one important fact a key to the Fins success. “Every single one of the kids reached finals in at least one of their events, so they were getting points for the club and that was really nice to see,” Harvey said. Next up for the Fins will be the Canadian Junior Nationals, that will be taking place in Winnipeg July 25-30. Cadence Johns, Elyssa Tacchi and Olivia Hughes will be representing the Fins at the meet. “We’re preparing now and working hard, we’re getting into the tapering right now and relax a little bit so they’ll be able to spring back when they get into the meet,” coach Hughes said. “So hopefully we see some really good times and some great performances.”

Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame to induct six for 2018 Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame will expand by six members for 2018, featuring a mix of athletes and builders covering a wide variety of sports. Included in the newest class of inductees are former Canadian champion and Olympic figure skater Susan Humphreys; 14-year National Hockey League forward Doug Smail; former Moose Jaw hockey and baseball standout player and long-time coach George Hunchuk; longtime baseball and curling coach Roger Anholt; former Baseball Canada national team coach and current executive director Jim Baba and former baskeball standout builder Stanley ‘Hub’ Gutheridge, the name sake of the Gutheridge Field athletics venue. “This year’s class is right up there with the first three years we have brought in, I’m really happy with the people we have,” said Hall of Fame selection committee member Ken Bradley.
Six more athletes and builders will be enshrined in the Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame this fall.
“We had a large number of applications and we really had to pare down to only six inductees this year... I think what’s happened is we’re making some headway in the community and they’re getting to know us and understand our passion and what we’re try-
ing to do, so now we’re getting extra nominations. It’s a good problem to have, working through and selecting the top candidates.” While impressed with the whole list, Bradley pointed to Hunchuk as one inductee who stood out, saying that
he was especially impressed with how long Hunchuk remained dedicated to working with the sports community in Moose Jaw. “I was so impressed with how much effort he put into being a good athlete, administrator and coach,” Bradley said. “Anything from Pee Wee girls softball to senior men’s and oldtimer hockey teams. He did it for over 50 years, it’s unbelievable... They’re all excellent choices, but he’s one who really stood out to me.” Bradley also made note of Roger Anholt, whose induction will mark the first father and son in the Hall, after former baseball standout Ryan Anholt was enshrined last year. The formal induction press conference will take place on Sept. 6., with the 2018 induction ceremony slated to take place on Oct. 20 at Mosaic Place.

Miller Express locked into fourth heading into final week Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
It was another up-and-down run of games for the Moose Jaw Miller Express in Western Major Baseball League action this past week, with the end result seeing the local squad all but locked into fourth place as the Eastern Division playoffs approach. The Express dropped a pair of 5-2 decisions at home to the Okotoks Dawgs on July 18 and 19 before rebounding with a 9-3 win over the Yorkton Cardinals July 20. Moose Jaw picked up a doubleheader split – 8-4 loss and 3-2 win – against Weyburn on July 21 and closed out the week with a 12-2 loss to Swift Current on July 22. The Miller Express sat at 20-22 after the week’s action, four games behind the fourth-place 57s. Okotoks 5, Express 2 The Miller Express took a 2-0 lead out of the first inning and held it all the way until the seventh, where the Dawgs scored two to tie things up. There the score remained until the 11th inning, when Okotoks put up three runs and secured the win. Mitchell Robinson was once again stellar in taking the no decision, giving up two hits and striking out six in seven innings. Logan Hoffman pitched two scoreless in relief; Tannar Galey and Travis Edgar closed out the game, surrendering three unearned runs while giving up a single hit. Georgie McDougall led the offence with a 2-for-4 night at the plate. Okotoks 5, Express 2 Okotoks scored two runs in the sixth to break a 2-2 tie and added an insurance marker in the ninth. Jesse Marks took the loss despite a solid outing with four runs on eight hits over six innings. Pitcher-turned-first-baseman Markus Gregson hit a solo home run for the Express while Eric Marriott and Ty Schindel were both 2-for-4. Express 9, Yorkton 3 The Express found themselves in yet another early

low-scoring affair, nursing a 2-1 lead through six. That all changed with a Moose Jaw seven-spot in the seventh, more than enough for the win. Brooks Benson went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI; Robinson played left field and hit a
round-tripper of his own while going 2-for-3. Gregson gave up a single run in five innings work to earn the win. Weyburn 8, Express 4 The Beavers scored three in the fourth and two in the fifth on their way to the win in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader. Ryder Yakel took the loss, giving up seven runs on 12 hits in five innings work. Scott Platt was 2-for-3 with two runs scored. Express 3, Weyburn 2 The Miller Express broke out vintage Moose Jaw Lakers uniforms for the second game of the twinbill, and the good luck from the 1954 South Saskatchewan league champions paid off. Trailing 2-0 in the sixth, Marriott got things going by reaching on a single, stealing second, going to third on a passed ball and scoring an a hit by Blake Gallagher. Gallagher himself came around to score two batters later on a single from Benson to take the lead. The combined efforts of Michael Mommersteeg – two runs, four hits, six strikeouts in six innings – and Hoffman – three innings relief, one hit, seven strikeouts – saw to it those runs would be enough for the win. Swift Current 12, Express 2 The 57s put up a five-spot in the second and never looked back in their commanding victory. Schindel and Benson each hit solo home runs for the Express; Blake Adams hit a pair of round trippers for Swift Current. Mason Garispe was the losing pitcher, giving up seven runs on six hits in four innings. The Express are back in action with six games this week, only one at home: their regular-season finale against the Melville Millionaires July 29 (2:05 p.m.).

City to look into a variety of areas regarding pothole repairs and other road hazards Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
It’s a common complaint during the summer months; the number of potholes and damage to the streets from roadwork acts as a constant thorn in the side of local drivers. That’s why Coun. Chris Warren included a review of the city’s road repair policy as part of his three-part plan to look at how the city of Moose Jaw applies itself when it comes to key areas of public works -- including snow removal and the sewer and capital construction division -- during the most recent meeting of city council. Among his concerns, which were gathered from personal experience and feedback from the community, were the amount of pavement failures, potholes and hazardous utility cuts and the amount of time it takes to make the necessary repairs. “Sometimes the time it takes to address hazardous road conditions is quite lengthy,” Warren said, adding that an inspection process, including timelines, needed to be put in place. “What this does in my experience, if the municipality is informed of a road hazard, from the moment that call comes in, the city is liable for any possible damages that might occur if they fail to take reasonable action on the hazard... by ensuring we have a system where we inspect and determine if there’s a hazard, we can minimize future damage to vehicles as well as limit liability.” An important aspect of that repair schedule is deciding what to fix first, based on whether the roads are arterial, collector or local, with the risks managed based on road classification and usage. “As an example, a pothole in the middle of a wheelpath in the middle of Main Street
Sweet Dreams are Not Made With Cramps
by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor
would take priority over a pothole in the parking lane on a residential road,” Warren said. “The risk on Main Street is that a lot of vehicles travel that road every day and they’re going to hit that spot, whereas a pothole in a parking lane will see much slower speeds, fewer vehicles will hit it and there isn’t as much risk.” City manager Jim Puffault said the city currently has a policy in place that it uses to deal with the wide variety of road situations it sees on a daily basis, and that putting it down on paper in a single document would improve communication of how things work. “I know we do a lot of this work, so it’s matter of putting it all into one format so everyone understands what we’re doing,” he said. “I can say that we’re also working on a reporting format tying into our existing services where people would be able to report potholes on site, where people could take a picture of it, send it to us with the GPS coordinates. It’s a cool technology that could work to our advantage, and that report is coming next month.” Regardless of how much effort the city puts into road repairs, the simple location of the city is always going to be an issue, Warren said, given the clay soil base the city sits on. With clay’s ability to take on water and swell and contract combined with the wide temperature swings, heaving and cracking is almost inevitable. “So our road structures are on an uphill battle when trying to find a solution for asphalt deficiencies,” Warren said. “This is the hand we’ve been dealt and having policies in place so the roadways are maintained and made safe in a predictable fashion is always going to be important.”
I suspect most of us have experienced a Charley Horse, a spasmed or cramped muscle in the thigh or calf. It is definitely not fun to experience and is especially unpleasant when it occurs in the middle of the night, waking you up
from a deep sleep. I’ve read some research regarding these types of episodes and there doesn’t seem to be a definitive cause or treatment for these types of muscle cramps. There is some suggestion that these muscles contract and spasm due to dehydration, tired or overused muscles, lack of certain minerals or just having those muscles in a shortened position for too long. If you suffer from these types of cramps on a regular basis and have seen a doctor to rule out dangerous causes of these painful spasms, here are a few things to try, if you have not already. Dehydration is one of the more common theories as to why spasms occur, so try drinking more water (but not necessarily before bedtime otherwise you’ll be up at night for other reasons). Lack of magnesium seems to be a popular culprit in the occurrence of Charley Horses. Conventional western medicine and complementary and alternative medicine tend to agree with this theory. Research shows a positive relationship between supplementing with magnesium and reduced nighttime leg cramps. While not as definitive, lack calcium also appears to be associated with muscle cramps. Another, though not well-known, treatment for night cramps is something that has been traditionally used to treat malaria, and that is quinine. Quinine has been shown to reduce the severity and frequency of leg cramps at night as well as restless leg syndrome. Interestingly enough, you can get quinine (in small amounts, mind you) without a doctor’s prescription. There are trace amount of quinine in tonic water (not club soda). It may be helpful to drink half a can of tonic water every day for a few weeks to see if the leg cramps improve (just leave out the gin!!) Overuse and underuse is what I believe may be significant contributors to muscle cramps. Those who exercise, often talk about leg cramps the night after they’ve done a leg workout. For those who don’t exercise and spend too many hours sedentary and not moving their legs, cramping may result. For those of you who suffer terrible night spasms, Charley horses, cramps or even restless legs, you may want to try some of these simple strategies to solve your nocturnal woes.

The ’38 Club ladies celebrate their 80th Birthday party Sarah Catterick
The lovely ladies of the ’38 Club hosted their 80th birthday party on Sunday, July 15th in the auditorium of Timothy Eaton Gardens. This is a yearly tradition for the club, comprised exclusively of women who were born in 1938. Almost 30 ladies were in attendance at this year’s party and they celebrated their 80th birthday with cake and refreshments. Event host and party-planner Ann McNally began the ’38 Club seventeen years ago. “There were only a few people at the beginning. We met up every year for dinner, and now we are close to 40 members. Somebody knew somebody else and invited them to join and so it just grew.” Carolyn Cunanan remembers hearing about the club for the first time. “I was with my husband at a Knights of Columbus meeting and I sat with Ann. She said she’d just had coffee with a
few ladies who were all born in 1938 and I said, ‘I was born in 1938!’ That’s how I got the invitation.” At this year’s event members of the ’38 Club were given placemats showcasing pictures of the many celebrations that the ladies have held since the group began. Finding herself in almost every picture, Cunanan was pleased to note that she has attended almost every event since her original invitation. “And I’ll keep coming back because it’s just a nice group of people to spend time with.” Another member of the ’38 Club, Marg Knapik, enjoys meeting new people at the annual social event. “I’ve been to four parties so far. It keeps you connected. I knew a lot of these people from years before, through church, bowling or dancing and everything else. But coming to the parties is also a good way to meet new people as

well.” While most of the ’38 Club are from the Moose Jaw area, invitations are open to any lady who was born in 1938. Esther McKinty, from Winnipeg, was in the friendly city several years ago visiting her sister-in-law. She was invited to the birthday dinner and ever since then she has been on
the email list. This year, McKinty planned her regular summer trip to the province around this event. “This is a great way to forge friendships. Everyone here already has a bond to begin with because we are all celebrating our 80th birthdays this year, so it is a great way to meet new people.”

EU fines Google a record $5 billion over mobile practices By Ryan Nakashima And Raf Casert - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BRUSSELS _ European regulators came down hard on another U.S. tech giant Wednesday, fining Google a record $5 billion for forcing cellphone makers that use the company’s Android operating system to install Google search and browser apps. The European Union said Google’s practices restrict competition and reduce choices for consumers. While Google can easily afford the fine, the ruling could undermine the company’s business model, which relies on giving away its operating system in return for opportunities to sell ads and other products. Google immediately said it will appeal, arguing that its free operating system
has led to lower-price phones and created competition with its chief rival, Apple. Android has ``created more choice for everyone, not less,’’ Google CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted. The fine, which caps a three-year investigation, is the biggest ever imposed on a company by the EU for anticompetitive behaviour. It is likely to stoke tensions between Europe and the U.S., which regulates the tech industry with a lighter hand and has complained that the EU is singling out American companies for punishment. © 2018 The Canadian Press
Regina inmate given ‘hurt feelings report’ calling them a whiner: advocate By Ryan McKenna - THE CANADIAN PRESS
REGINA _ A group that advocates on behalf of prisoners says a Regina inmate was given an insulting complaint form that called them a whiner. Sherri Maier, a legal assistant who also works for Beyond Prison Walls Cana-
da, posted a snapshot of the ``hurt feelings report’’ form online last Friday. Maier said she was given the form by an inmate who says they received it from a guard at the Regina Correctional Centre in April. She said the inmate

has since been released. One of the questions on the form _ which appears on Ministry of Corrections and Policing letterhead _ asks if the inmate requires a tissue for their tears and if the incident led to permanent feeling damage. One section on the form asks what date the individual’s feelings were hurt, ``time of hurtfulness’’ and the name of ``real man/woman who hurt your sensitive feelings.’’ Under a section where it asks for reasons for filing out the report, the options include ``I want my mommy,’’ ``I have woman/man-like hormones,’’ and ``I am thin skinned Saskatchewan Corrections needs to fix my problems.’’ Maier said she was alarmed. ``With all the mental health issues, you give somebody that, it’s kind of like a
slap in the face: here, we don’t care,’’ Maier said Wednesday. ``Fill out the cry baby form or the whiner’s report.’’ Noel Busse, a spokesman for the Ministry of Justice, said in an email that the form isn’t an official document and is not supported by the ministry. ``Corrections and Policing takes all complaints seriously and is extremely disappointed that this document suggests otherwise,’’ Busse said. An investigation is underway, he said. Maier said she doesn’t know if the form was intended to be a joke, but she said it’s unprofessional. ``Whether a guard made it on their spare time while they’re at work or a guard made it at home and brought it in as a joke, still somebody has to be held accountable for it,’’ she said. © 2018 The Canadian Press
Baseball, beer help Wright Brothers’ hometown rise again By Mitch Stacy THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Dayton, Ohio, saw its best days in the first half of the 20th century. But the city has been reinventing itself with impressive results. Population had topped out in 1960. The city lost families to the suburbs and others left as manufacturing declined and jobs evaporated. Downtown retail moved out as the population shifted. In recent years, though, downtown Dayton has started to turn it around. The city spruced up the Great Miami riverfront, creating a family friendly downtown park. An old railroad freight house was converted into a popular public market. The city scored a minor-league baseball team _ the Class-A Dayton Dragons _ and put up a fan-friendly, 7,200-seat stadium that has sold out every home game since it opened in 2000. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Pay down debt or save money? How to allocate your cash By Sarah Skidmore Sell THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
It’s one of the most common questions financial advisers hear: should I prioritize paying down debt or building up savings? Americans have a cozy relationship with debt _ student loans, credit cards and car loans are commonplace. The Federal Reserve said that consumer borrowing rose $24.5 billion in May alone to hit almost $3.9 trillion. And that doesn’t include mortgage or real estate-secured debt, like home equity lines. Add rising interest rates to that mix and you’ve got quite the budget burden. Debt can help advance your life, for example by paying for an education to get a job or buying a car to get to work. But paying it back also uses up money that could be set aside for emergencies, retirement or other expenses. Research shows most Americans are ill-prepared to face a minor financial hiccup, let alone the cost of retirement. So how do you meet these competing demands? We talked to a few financial
experts for their tips. ASSESS First, take a good look at what you’re up against. How much debt do you have and at what interest rates? How much savings do you have? Other questions to consider: are you only making minimum payments? Are your finances a source of stress in your life? Then look at your budget - knowing how much money you have to work with will help you figure out what is feasible moving forward. The budget is the key to unlocking solutions. PLAN Come up with a strategy you can stick with. A successful plan will address both debt and savings in concert, to make the most of the money you do have. It’s not about focusing on one issue then moving on to the next, but rather a matter of determining where your spending priority is. A rule of thumb is to allocate 20 per cent of your take-home pay to savings
and debt payments. How you divvy that up will depend on your priorities. One thing the experts agree on: make emergency savings a top priority. Don’t worry about getting several months of savings set aside. Even $500 can provide peace of mind. This allows you to handle life’s unexpected emergencies, like a car repair or lost cellphone, without further running up debt. Tackling your highest interest rate debt needs to be near the top too. The average interest rate on credit cards is around 17 per cent and more interest rate hikes are anticipated in the near future. Compare hat to the single-digit interest rate you might get from a standard savings account and it’s an easy decision. It’s the best time ever to not carry a balance. Calculate how long it will take to pay off your debt _ knowing that date will remind you there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
Then think about your lower-interest rate debt like federal student loans. While it may be tempting to turn your back on longer-term savings, don’t - that is just trading today’s financial ruin for another down the road. Don’t overlook opportunities for workplace retirement savings accounts, particularly if your employer matches your contribution. Failing to give at least the amount up to that level is like leaving money on the table, said Paul Golden of the National Endowment for Financial Education. Some employers may have additional benefits to help with saving or paying down student loans. That helps them reach both financial goals of retirement savings and student loan repayment.

Deadly mushrooms make early appearance in Victoria, spark health warning VICTORIA _ A type of potentially deadly mushroom is making an early appearance around Victoria, prompting a warning from the local health authority. Island Health says death cap mushrooms, which usually appear in the fall, have already been spotted in several areas on southern Vancouver Island. Officials say intensive lawn watering may be linked to the early fruiting of the small mushrooms with white gills and a smooth yellow, green or white cap. Death caps are not native to Canada and grow from the roots of imported trees such as beech, chestnut and English oak, but have recently been found
among native Garry oaks. They can be easily confused with edible mushrooms, such as puffballs and paddy-straw mushrooms, but death cap toxin attacks the liver and kidney, killing as many as 30 per cent of those who eat them. Dr. Richard Stanwick, Island Health Chief Medical Health Officer says death caps are found in rural and urban areas and are particularly dangerous to toddlers and pets. A Victoria toddler died in 2016 after eating one. ``We are concerned about people with limited knowledge of poisonous and non-poisonous mushrooms;

the differences can be subtle and even microscopic in some cases,’’ Stanwick says in the news release. He says wild mushrooms should only be harvested by those with significant expertise. The health authority says nausea and vomiting begins about 8 to 12 hours after eating death caps. Those symptoms seem to disappear after 24 hours and people can feel fine for up to 72 hours, but liver and kidney damage starts three to six days later. Early treatment in hospital, possibly including a liver transplant, is essential, says the health authority. © 2018 The Canadian Press

On the Front Porch
by Wanda Smith
Jump in the Deep End Every summer for many years, my sis and I took swimming lessons at our local small-town pool. I have never been a fish nor enjoyed swimming but my mom considered it a valuable life lesson to know. I was not a real confident swimmer, but I did make it to the levels that required swimming lengths of the pool and spending considerable time in the deep end. I’m not sure why I have never liked swimming; except that getting wet and then having to get dressed in clothes that stick to your body never did appeal to me. If I don’t have to get wet, I’m much happier. I don’t mind a few boat rides on a beautiful lake on a warm summer evening, however, just don’t ask me to jump in the lake! After a really hot day, Mom would take us in for evening public swimming from time to time. Although I didn’t really feel part of the crowd, I enjoyed watching the shenanigans that went on with the bigger kids in the deep end. There were many show-offs, namely guys, who would “water bomb” someone by making a big splash off the diving board or side of the pool. There was always an element of fun watching them show off their wacky dives or splashing the girls sunbathing on the deck. Life is much like a swimming pool! The fun only happens in the deep end! The ones who took a risk were the ones who had the most fun in the pool... same as in life. The ones who walk on the faith side are the ones who have the most adventure in life. We can stay on the safe side of the rope but will never experience what it’s like to take a risk when we can’t touch the bottom. There is something invigorating when one crosses over. If we stay on the safe side, we will never mature or be pushed to expand our experiences. God never called us to a mediocre life. You know, there’s a saying that passes around social media that says something like this: “I only want to live a simple life. I just want to be happy and stay in my own little world (my paraphrase).” There’s always been something that doesn’t sit with me when I read that. Quit being satisfied with the status quo! It’s time to jump in the deep end and believe for the impossible! God never called us to live a mundane life. He has called us out into the deep where we need to trust Him. Peter was called out on the water (and Jesus was right there to rescue Peter when he took his eyes off of Him). Jesus called him out. He called him to get out of the boat... out of the safe place... the shallow end. We aren’t mean to live our lives for ourselves. We were meant to live outside of our comfort zones. Jesus loves the uncomfortable zone and He is calling us to experience it. He desires that we follow Him and listen to Holy Spirit lead us. It is an adventure beyond anything we can ever experience in the natural world. Be bold enough to believe God and step out of the boat.

He was also an honorary founding director of Temple Gardens Mineral Spa in Moose Jaw, and an enthusiastic supporter of the Claybank Brick Plant Historical Site.

Caitlin Kilgannon, a beautiful young soul, left this earthly life late in the evening of Sunday, July 8, 2018, in Hamilton, Ontario, at the age of 27. She was bright, funny, creative and thoughtful. Her spirit was as glorious as her smile. Caitlin is already powerfully remembered and missed by her mother Janet, her father Tony, her brother Brendan (and Jelena), and her extended family and friends. She will stay in the hearts of her beloved nieces Abigail and Paisley, her 'sister' Ariana, and her much-loved feline companion Buddy. Caitlin was born on July 20, 1990, and brought joy and light into her family. A quiet and thoughtful child, she followed in her brother's footsteps all through her schooling, first at G.R. Allan Elementary School, Dalewood Middle School, and finally Westdale High School. She then moved on to higher education at Brock University, until her health issues brought her back to Hamilton. She was an example to all of us as she met these challenges head-on with courage and dignity, as well as a surprising sense of humour. Caitlin was well-known for her love of country music, and attended as many concerts as she could. She made regular trips to Toronto with her mom to the Art Gallery and various theatre productions, with overnights in her favourite hotels. Road trips with her dad expanded her horizons and brought her much happiness. Her solo visit to Tucson, Arizona, for her friend Katie's college graduation, was a particular highlight in her travels. She was our real-life Disney princess, and filled our days with visions of her avatar, Belle. As an avid fan of everything by Dr. Seuss, she lived her life ruled by the message of The Lorax ... "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Things will not get better, they'll not." She brought comfort and strength to all of us with her lovely and gracious spirit, and brightened our hearts with her unique and sweet home decorating ideas... A Celebration of Life for our Caitlin took place at 11 am on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at Westdale United Church, in Hamilton. If you are so inclined, Caitlin would be delighted if you made a donation to a charity of your choice. Let's help her make the world a better place. She will always be remembered in our hearts, and especially loved by her mom, Janet.

It’s don’t see traffic backed up four or five cars deep, and even double or triple that during rush hour times. In the assessment of Dr. Brandon Thorpe of Alliance Health -- one of the businesses on that corner -- that leads to driver impatience, which leads to less-than-careful-driving and drivers not taking into account the pedestrian crosswalks on the intersection. And it’s resulted in one of the nurses at the clinic suffering a broken leg. Fortunately, a solution is at hand as the City of Moose Jaw has plans to upgrade the Ninth Avenue Northwest and Lillooet Street South intersection substantially in the relatively near future, although the work can’t come soon enough in the eyes of people affected by the intersection. regular pricesees two gas stations The intersection

“The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.”

Every year without exception, the annual Festival of Words (FoW) in July puts on a first-rate top-notch schedule of activities for the literary crowd. Congratulations to Executive Director Sarah Simison, all the staff, as well as to all of the volunteers, for making this event so successful and always well-attended. Everyone I spoke to had nothing but blazing reviews. Two ladies from Red Deer said they not only thoroughly enjoyed the Festival of Words, but also Moose Jaw, in general. I would also like to make mention that my freelance reporter Janet Kilgannon from Hamilton, Ontario, always books this time into her annual schedule to attend the FoW and cover for the Moose Jaw Express, even though she now lives so far away. This year was especially hard for my dear friend and reporter; she lost her 28-year-old daughter in the last couple of weeks due to health issues. Our hearts and love go out to her at this sad time, but she said that coming back to Moose Jaw to engage in this festival did her heart good and was therapeutic. It was a very eventful week. A full house of family was visiting from Vancouver and I am happy to report that the weather cooperated so we could spend most of the time outdoors; the menu prepared for the week fed the multitudes and no one starved or complained and there was wine… Rob and I reached another life milestone; we celebrated our 40th Anniversary and still adhere to our commitment: “I laugh at his jokes and he eats my cooking!” I think he gets the better deal; his jokes are sometimes pretty lame.” Summer is such a great season. There’s certainly no lack of things to do. Only one more week until August is upon us and school shopping will soon be on the brain to prepare for another year. Here’s wishing everyone is making the best of the sun and sand, water and whatever playtime you pursue.

Co-op Moose Jaw presents a cheque of $120,000 to the East Side Community Association
Co-op makes generous $120,000 donation for East End Spray Park Sasha-Gay Lobban
The East End of the city will be getting a big boost as Co-op has donated $120,000 to the East Side Community Association for the establishment of the East End Spray Park. On Thursday, July 19, Co-op Moose Jaw, presented the cheque to the East Side Community Association at East End Park. This huge donation will cover half of the budget projected to build this Spray Park which the Association says is a major boost to the east end of the city. Co-op says it is helping to “build a place for everyone in Moose Jaw” with this funding. The funding was provided through the Co-op Community Spaces Program. The spray park will add a recreational facility for everyone to use and be located near an accessible playground. Co-op Community Spaces is investing in community projects across Western Canada, from Vancouver Island through to Manitoba. The program helps create, protect and improve projects dedicated to environmental conservation, recreation and urban agriculture. “Co-op Community Spaces is an exciting program that provides another opportunity for Co-op to give back and invest in local projects across Western Canada,” said Kathleen Kristoff, Member Relations Advisor of Moose Jaw Co-op. “By supporting projects like this, we’re helping to build and support a vibrant and healthy community where people can come together.” Kristoff said the construction of the spray park was the perfect fit to receive this funding because it benefits the community on a whole over a long-term. “We had requested that different organizations submit a funding request from all over Western Canada through Co-op and the East Side Association submitted an application/ request that was exactly what we were looking for to support—something that benefits the community. This is on the east side of the city, but it benefits the community, which is exactly what we were looking for to fund. This is something that is going to benefit the community over a long term and it is something that this side of the community has needed for a while. This also improves the accessibility of the playground. We are happy to partner with the Association with this. We think it is a great project and we are very happy to step in and make this area known and accessible to everybody.” Jenny Gadd, Chairman of the East Side Community Association says they are happy to have received this funding from Co-op. “We’re are incredibly grateful for the opportunity that the Co-op was able to recognize our submission as being worthy and we’re excited to continue this partnership going forward. This funding will cover half of our budgeted expenses for this park.” she said. “A spray park is much more accessible—7 days a week as long as it’s sunny and nice out, anyone will be able to use the spray park on demand. It is also nice to see the city supporting this end of town because we
are also working in partnership with the City of Moose Jaw to fund this project. They will be project managing for us so it’s nice to see some attention on the east end, an area that doesn’t always get it and it is nice for the community to make a mark on this side of the city and to work with Co-op who has given us this huge donation.” Gadd says work on the spray park will begin soon. “We are beyond excited for construction to begin and to see all members of the community enjoy the brand new East End Spray Park for years to come. We’re hoping to do ground-breaking in August. We’ll do de-commissioning and digging out the paddling pool this year and in spring, we will begin with installation, so the park can be up and running for summer 2019.” In the meantime, because of pending construction, this year’s east end playground program has moved to Clark Gillies Park. This year, 24 organizations will receive a total $2 million for their community projects. Since 2015, Co-op Community Spaces has donated $6.5 million to 88 projects. The giving program is administered by Federated Co-operatives Limited on behalf of more than 180 independent retail co-operatives across Western Canada that form the Co-operative Retailing System. Moose Jaw Co-op is a retail co-operative that has proudly served Moose Jaw and surrounding area for more than 70 years. Today, Moose Jaw Co-op serves more than 17,000 members — and many more customers — in Moose Jaw and surrounding communities, where it operates the Marketplace Food Store, three gas bar locations, Agro Centre and cardlock. Since 2010, Moose Jaw Co-op has returned more than $30.5 million to its members in cash back and equity, while contributing over $525,000 to community organizations and initiatives.
