The Moose Jaw Salvation Army has started a new program to help children, that may not otherwise be able to afford school supplies, get the supplies they need for school this fall. The Back-to-School Backpack program has been successful at Salvation Army centres across Saskatchewan and now Moose Jaw families will be able to benefit from it, too. Sonya Bowles, Family Services Coordinator for the Salvation Army in Moose Jaw, is enthusiastic about the new local program. “We want to make sure that all kids are going back to school excited and not feeling out of place. Everyone should be able to feel like they fit in. We can all remember the excitement of getting those brand-new school supplies and writing your name on each of the notebooks and binders.” However, Bowles is aware that not everyone feels this same excitement. She says, “Going back to school is often a huge expense. The list of school supplies is long and many families have to decide between new binders or new shoes. No one should have to decide between those two needs. So we want to lessen the burden a bit with this program.” This fall, the Salvation Army is hoping to help 100 school-aged children by filling backpacks with all the necessary school supplies. The backpacks will be available through an in-person application process that will take place from the 13th to the 21st of August at the Salvation Army Community Services office. Parents are asked

to bring proof of address and income, the student’s valid health card, and the name of the Moose Jaw school they will be entering in the fall. Bowles is determined to make this service a yearly event. “Since this is our first year doing this, we are aiming to give out 100 backpacks, but hopefully we can grow that number each year and help as many people as possible.” It will certainly be a community effort. The program will be funded in part by the annual Christmas Kettle Campaign. Salvation Army has also partnered with the local Real Canadian Superstore to raise money for the school supplies. Bowles says, “Anyone who wants to help can donate to the program at Superstore and the cashiers will be asking everyone if they want to contribute to this important program during the first weekend in August. That’s also where all our school supplies for the backpacks will come from.” Bowles knows that having all the necessary school supplies can make the transition from summer to school-time significantly easier. “We want to give every child the chance to succeed. We want them to be excited about learning and make returning to school a positive experience with as few worries as possible.” For further information about the program, eligibility, and how to register please contact the Salvation Army Community Services office at 306-692-5899 or stop by to apply at 175 1st Avenue NE.

City releases financial statement for 2017

Financial assets increase by nearly $5.9 million; city among best in province in long-term debt Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The City of Moose Jaw continues to see steady improvement in its financial picture, while maintaining one of the lowest long-term debt loads among Saskatchewan cities, according to 2017 audited financial statements presented to City Council on July 23. The city carries $156,011,994 in financial assets compared to $63,278,864 in liabilities, giving a net financial asset total of $92,733,130 for the year. That’s an increase of $5,867,783 over 2016 levels. The majority of the city’s revenue comes from municipal taxation, which totalled $26,793,464 for the year – an increase of 6.4 per cent, most of which came from the 6.24 tax increase in 2017. Moose Jaw also took in $25,196,728 in utility revenue to go along with contributions, grants and subsidy revenues of $19,939,839 -- with provincial revenue sharing bringing in $6,386,328 of that total. In addition, the city saw a top-up payment of $942,000 from the province to cover the reduction in municipal funding, with

the budget expecting to see a $374,000 payment. The extra $568,000 was put into the general capital reserve to help offset was is expected to be shortfall of over $4 million in 2019. While bringing in a substantial amount of funding, utilities are also the largest expenditure item for the city, at a total of $19,939,839. Protection to persons and property – city fire and police services – cost $18,165,296 for 2017. The overall budget summary of revenue for the city revealed a surplus of $202,170, which was contributed to the accumulated surplus for a total of $3,299,036 in that fund before council transferred $1,613,791 balance to the general capital budget for 2018. As a result, the accumulated surplus sits at $1,685,245. The City of Moose Jaw’s financial reserves sit at $115,063,816, with $3,729,914 in investment earnings largely coming from that fund, even in light of the current low interest rates. Without that income, the city would have to raise taxes by 13.9 per cent to replace that revenue and should interest

rates improve in the future, the benefit to taxpayers will only be increased. Overall, Moose Jaw finds itself in an enviable position among Saskatchewan cities when it comes to a pair of metrics, with long-term debt at $36,917,554, third-best amongst the seven largest communities in the province. Moose Jaw also has the lowest level of municipal taxation on a per capita basis at $760.60 – more than $150 lower than any other city in the province – although Coun. Brian Swanson pointed out, seeing as taxes are collected on an assessment basis, that number is irrelevant as other cities have lower tax rates when factoring in the commercial sector. **** Council also received the 2017 municipal public accounts record, which included the annual list of employee remuneration for those making $50,000 or more. Departed city manager Matt Noble was the highest-compensated employee with the City of Moose Jaw in 2017, receiving $205,125.10 plus $6,000 in ‘other’ renu-

Police chief Richard Bourassa received $160,525.08 in compensation, part of $10,179,742 paid to Moose Jaw Police Services personnel in 2017, the largest total of any single department. Deputy police chief Clifford Froehlich was the fourth-highest paid municipal employee at $146,763.70 plus $306 in other pay. Moose Jaw Fire Department Chief Rod Montgomery received $137,915.13 plus $3,514.62 in renumeration, part of the $6,177,409 the department was paid in 2017.

Flea Beetles to control scourge of leafy spurge in Britannia Park subdivision


P: 306-693-4715

E: info@johnstoneauction.ca

Website: www.johnstoneauction.ca

Approximately 10,000 beetles have jointly been released by the City of Moose Jaw and the Moose Jaw River Watershed Stewards (MJRWS) for biocontrol of leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula) in the Britannia Park subdivision of Moose Jaw (SW Moose Jaw between 24th and 32nd Avenues from Caribou St. south to Britannia Road). “We have been investigating options on how to control leafy spurge in Britannia Park this year,� explained Sarah Regent, Parks Gardener for the City of Moose Jaw. “While we continue to investigate options, the Moose

Jaw River Watershed Authority generously offered the beetles to us for free. Saskatchewan studies have shown that the flea beetles can cause a noticeable reduction in leafy spurge after two years.� There are three different species of flea beetles that have been released - Brown Dot Spruge (A. cyparissiae) Beetle, Black dot Spruge Beetle (A. nigriscutis) and the Black Spruge Beetle (A. lacertosa). The adults feed on the shoots and leaves while the larvae feed on the roots, weakening the plants. The beetles were collected from an established beetle colony near Moose Jaw by the MJRWS.

Looking For Husband’s Father Damian was conceived in Moose Jaw 1972. His birth mother was Irene Johnstone who is of Cree Indian heritage. I have been in contact with Irene’s cousin that she lived with when she fell pregnant with Damian. She said she met the father and confirmed he was a teacher at the Saskatchewan Technical Institute (Polytechnic). I asked Doug Mc Ronney if any Jamaican taught at the STI and he said there was only one Jamaican instructor and he thinks he was called Winston that year in the 1971- 1972. He said there was one Instructor in the MVMR (Motor Vehicle Maintenance Repair) department that was from Jamaica . Possible first name Winston. I was wondering if anyone would recognize him and be able to give me a first and last name. I have two pictures of him. I thought maybe a teacher or past student in 1972 may recognize him and be able to help our search in finding Damian’s birth father. The only information in the adoption papers was that his father was very good looking and athletic and from West Indies origin.

One big provincial project would help solve Moose Jaw’s economic troubles With first half building permits at less than half last year’s level, the construction industry faces a bleak year in Moose Jaw. There is nothing on the horizon to change the construction scene. After many extensions, the $50 million pea processing plant has allowed land sales and tax concession agreements with the city to lapse. The approved $13 million Canadian Tire project seems stuck in limbo. Check with other local business people and you will by Ron Walter discover the local business scene is less than buoyant. Our mayor wiggled his way in front of CTV cameras at the recent successful Highway to Heroes car show, concert and Snowbirds’ performance to say how great the one-day show is for the city. Some might think he was just seeking a photo opportunity, but he was doing his job: trying to make things look better than they are. City leaders can’t do much to lure new business, other than tax concessions and land prices. That explains why every new council promises to attract more business but is never successful, even though everybody sits on the economic development committee. The province plays a bigger role in attracting business. The province has the power to build one substantial project that would benefit Moose Jaw and all of Southern Saskatchewan. The Qu’Appelle Conveyance project was recommended by a federal-provincial study in 2012. That was six years ago. The study author Graham Parsons placed a $1 billion price tag on the 95-kilometre water canal from Lake Diefenbaker to Buffalo Pound.

The project would ensure the water needs of Southern Saskatchewan for decades and generate $36 billion in government revenues. A 36-to-one payback seems quite reasonable. Parsons warned the province that at 2012 levels of water consumption, water use would be constrained by 2020. This 2018. It will take eight years to build the project once a decision is made Fortunately for water users and government, a slower economy, particularly in new potash mines, has pushed that deadline up a few years. A separate side project, irrigation of 135,000 acres between Tugaske and Marquis, would have immense benefit to Moose Jaw. Anyone visiting Lethbridge, Taber, Bow Island or Brooks in Southern Alberta can attest to the value of irrigation to the local economy. At the meeting unveiling the Qu’Appelle Conveyance project, then recently appointed Saskatchewan Minister of Agriculture Lyle Stewart told the group he would be pushing for the project and hoped a decision would be made in a few years. He cautioned about expecting a quick decision. “It’s an extremely expensive piece of infrastructure,” said Stewart. “No government is going to rush into it until it’s obviously the choice that has to be made.” He agreed with the project’s importance. “If we can get the Qu’Appelle Water Conveyance done it will transform the economy of Saskatchewan. It’s that big a deal.” Well, six years later we’re still waiting for word on that big deal. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Protect your trees in Moose Jaw from Cottony Ash Psyllid Infestation

Since early July, the City of Moose Jaw wants the public to be aware of a cottony ash psyllid infestation within Moose Jaw. It is a small winged insect considered invasive by the Saskatchewan Invasive Species Council. This pest affects Manchurian (mancana) and Black Ash trees as well as their hybrids. These trees can be identified by their opposite bud arrangement, large compound leaves and large black buds. The trees in Moose Jaw’s downtown core are predominantly Manchurian Ash. The City is working to minimize tree loss by reducing stress on the trees and spraying them with an insecticidal soap to control the cottony ash psyllid population. Homeowners with Manchurian or Black Ash trees should monitor their trees for signs and symptoms of cottony ash psyllid. Signs and symptoms include curled, distorted leaves, a sticky, white substance resembling cotton, sticky surfaces below the tree, and a reduced number of leaves on the inner branches. Homeowners should reduce stress on susceptible trees by watering deeply during hot, dry weather, reducing other pests, not using herbicides underneath the tree, and preventing trunk and root damage.

Saskatchewan & Ontario Premiers Agree to Fight Federal Carbon Tax On July 19th during discussions at meetings of the Council of Federation, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and Ontario Premier Doug Ford agreed to fight the Federal Carbon Tax. “We agreed to join forces and use every single tool at our disposal to challenge the federal government’s authority to arbitrarily impose a carbon tax on the people of Ontario and Saskatchewan. “Carbon taxes make life unaffordable for families and put thousands of jobs at risk. This type of taxation does nothing for the environment and hits people in the wallet in order to fund big government initiatives. “We agreed that, in a time of economic uncertainty, we need to put more money back in the pockets of families and businesses. A climate change strategy is critical, but a carbon tax would increase the price of virtually every product and service people need on a daily basis. “We will do everything in our power, including going to court, to prevent the federal government from imposing this punishing tax on hard-working people. That is why Ontario will be supporting Saskatchewan and intervening in the reference case Saskatchewan has launched with its Court of Appeal. Ontario and Saskatchewan agree that the federal government should not be able to impose a carbon tax on provinces. The federation needs to work more collaboratively. We look forward to continuing to work together, and with our fellow premiers, to create good jobs and drive economic growth across the country.”

Trees with cottony ash psyllid may be sprayed with insecticidal soap or an insecticide registered for use on trees at bud break, approximately the last week of May to first week of June, or at the emergence of adult psyllids in July. Spring insecticide treatments are most effective, but summer treatments are useful to protect leaves that have not yet been distorted. Always read and follow label directions when applying a pesticide or hire a professional applicator. For more information please contact the Parks & Recreation Department or www.moosejaw.ca

Was grandfather a smarter farmer than today’s generation? By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Agri-Mart


EXPRESS A master’s degree thesis analyzing life after the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) suggests the Crown export marketing agency did a better job of allocating grain cars than the subsequent free market. Two mathematical models indicate the CWB would have had 20 per cent more turnarounds of rail cars than the private grain companies did in the heavy crop year of 2013. The federal Conservative government abolished the board in 2012 at the urging of Conservative farm supporters. University of Saskatchewan Master’s Degree candidate Devin Serfas told the 25th annual Farming for Profit Conference in Moose Jaw the decision to abolish the board did not consider the concentrated grain handling industry Three companies – Viterra, Richardson Pioneer, and Cargill — control two-thirds of inland grain terminal capacity. “With removal of the wheat board we’re allowing

this monoxopsony to take over control of the grain handling market and be in control of facilitating grain movement,” said Serfas. Under current regulatory frameworks, poor handling and transportation reduces producer income and elevates export basis prices, he said. “I suggest if the wheat board would have maintained its regime we would have seen a positively significant increase in grain handling performance. That would ultimately have lowered the export basis (price) and increased producer returns.” How the federal government decides to intervene in the grain handling and transportation industry is likely to impact producer income and economic development, said Serfas. University of Manitoba farm economist Derek Brewin said this thesis could influence the grain handling business. “If I was a railway and looked at your work I would think it is a lot more in my interest to behave like the wheat board in the way I allocate cars,” said Brewin. Dan Danielson, a Saskatchewan Wheat Commission member, said wheat growers, asked why they wanted an end to the board, say “more often than not their justification is some concept of freedom” to sell grain. 18065PS0 18065PS1

When the wheat board existed, said Danielson, overseas demonstrations by the Canadian International Grains Institute (CIGI) allowed signing an export contract on the spot. “Now CIGI has to refer them (buyers) to one of the grain companies.” One visitor said farmers understood 100 years ago how much power the railways and grain companies had over farmers. “The current generation of farmers forgot that,” he said. “They never understood what their grandfathers understood 100 years ago.” Conference host Andy Schmitz said abolition of the wheat board was all about politics. Danielson said he has seen studies that show abolishing the wheat board transferred $10 billion from farmers to the middlemen (grain companies and railways). Moose Jaw farmer Vaughan Crone said a number of “complex factors” were behind opposition to the wheat board. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Apply Now for Autism Spectrum Disorder Funding for Children Under 6 yrs Individualized funding for children under the age of six who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will continue to be funded by the Government of Saskatchewan. The application form and eligible services list have been posted at www.saskatchewan. ca/autism. In 2018-19, $2.8 million has been allocated to provide $4,000 per child with ASD under the age of six. The program will provide parents with funding for therapeutic interventions and family supports that best suit their child’s individual needs. It is estimated that approximately 700 children will be eligible for funding this year. ASD Individualized Funding is a joint Ministry of Health and Ministry of Social Services program. The Ministry of Social Services is administering the program and is now accepting applications. Families who have applied and meet the program criteria will begin receiving funding in August 2018. ASD Individualized Funding is in addition to autism services that will continue to be provided in the public system. The Ministry of Health is building a registry of autism service providers to assist parents in locating service providers. The registry will be posted on www. saskatchewan.ca/autism in August 2018, and will include: Behavioural consultants (who may provide applied behaviour analysis); Physical therapists; Occupational therapists; Psychologists; Social workers; Speech pathologists.

Private service providers are encouraged to sign up for the registry and can contact autismregistry@health.gov.sk.ca for more information on how to do so. Funding can also be used for respite services, therapeutic equipment, training/coaching for parents/caregivers and more. For more information, consult the eligible services list available at www. saskatchewan.ca/autism. Development of the Autism Individualized Funding program has been informed by the Autism Stakeholder Working Group. The group included parents of children with ASD and individuals who provide services for families impacted by ASD. The Government of Saskatchewan would like to thank them for their work and dedication to the creation of this program. The Autism Individualized Funding program supports the 10-year Saskatchewan Disability Strategy and its vision of making Saskatchewan a more welcoming, inclusive, and accessible province for people who experience disabilities. The program also supports Saskatchewan’s Early Years Plan and its goal of finding better ways to support children experiencing disabilities. In addition to the $2.8 million allocated to ASD Individualized Funding in 201819, the Ministry of Health will continue to provide $8.55 million annually to support a continuum of autism services, including autism consultants, support workers and rehabilitation therapists. Additional information on the program can be found at www.saskatchewan.ca/ autism.

Visitors to Moose Jaw arrive from near and far throughout the year, but never so much as in the summer months. The Friendly City is eager to welcome guests to our museums, restaurants, shops and parks, whether they are just travelling through or holidaying in the area.

Diane Grenir and Susanne Lavergne (front row) travelled through Moose Jaw near the end of their cross-Canada sightseeing bus tour. Grenir and Lavergne, both from Ottawa, were pleasantly surprised by all the sights of Moose Jaw that they could visit in just one day. Grenir says, “Our favourite bit about Moose Jaw was the Tunnels; there is just so much history. I think there is a lot more to see here than we did but I am glad we could stop.” Lavergne agreed wholeheartedly. “The Tunnels were very exciting. I’m sad that our tour is ending but this was a good place to finish. I have lots to tell when I get home.”

Just starting their vacation, Nicole, Mike, Charlotte, and Cameron Dillon are driving cross country from Ontario to Alaska and back again. Moose Jaw is a short stop on their long journey. Mike and Nicole say, “Moose Jaw is beautiful! It’s understated, I think; we will definitely be telling our friends about it.” The Tunnels were the main attraction for the young family and they continued their history-filled day by exploring the downtown shops and finding some murals.

The Zhan family are from Shanghai, China. Moose Jaw is one stop on their summer journey across Canada, but it has been a good one. “We are enjoying our time in Moose Jaw and Canada. Our son enjoys the food!”

Janice and Tony, visitors from New Westminster, British Columbia were eager to see the sights of Moose Jaw on their western Canadian road trip. The couple enjoyed a walk down Main Street admiring the architecture of the buildings all around them. Next, they went underground to take part in both Tunnels tours. Tony says, “We have really enjoyed it all! I got a parking spot right on Main Street here and as I was fumbling for cash, someone told me I didn’t need to pay as I had an out-of-province license plate! That’s fantastic; I wish they would advertise that a bit more.”

The Marabella family from Regina wanted to experience local history, as well. “We loved the role-play part of the Tunnels because that meant we all got to be a part of it. We learned a lot from it, too.” For their first visit to the Friendly City, the Marabella’s were determined to experience all that Moose Jaw has to offer. “We are trying to fit a lot into today. We did the Tunnels this morning, and we are going to head to the Western Development Museum this afternoon. Then, this evening, we are going to the Temple Gardens spa and pool. We will have to come back, though, soon.”

Downtown Moose Jaw has something for everyone. Annette and John from North Battleford have visited the Friendly City many times, and always make sure they walk down Main Street before they leave. Annette says, “I really like the downtown area here. It’s really good to walk around and there is lots to see and do.” John adds, “There are some great restaurants down here all within walking distance so it’s a really nice day or evening out.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Flowers killed off despite loving attention The black thumb and fingers that have plagued my attempts at houseplant nurturing and flowerbed design have hit again this summer with a wallop that was totally unexpected. When the tulips came up in March, had their tips frozen Joyce Walter and then produced shrivFor Moose Jaw Express eled buds and few blossoms, that should have been a sign that flowers would not be in my future as the days warmed. The tulips were not helped at all by the pesky squirrels who insisted on leaving me peanuts while they raided and made off with the bulbs that might have resulted in blooms on a year-after-year basis. Squirrel-lovers suggest it might have been dogs or cats to blame but there aren’t that many peanut-loving dogs or cats in the neighborhood. Then the lilies in my flowerbed did not materialize, perhaps because there was no proper snow cover and the ground was colder than usual. Across the driveway the lilies in Housemate’s patch came up and grew tall and bloomed, almost waving their blossoms in the direction of where my lilies once flourished.

It was a combination of poor tulip luck and no regrowth of lilies added to an aching back that convinced me to simply go to the garden centres to buy hanging baskets and planters with plants already planted, with blossoms in place. The manual labour of this endeavour was simply pulling out the credit card to pay for my purchases and opening the trunk lid so Housemate could load them at the store then unload them in our driveway. With me pointing the way, he even plopped them where I deemed suitable locations in the front, and on the side of the house. This style of gardening doesn’t involve the back-breaking work of filling pots with soil and growth enhancements, transplanting plants into their permanent containers and then moving them again to where they will thrive and stun the neighbours with their beauty. Housemate even bought me a small watering can, one easily carried so as not to further injure my back or place pressure on my arthritic hand. Even I was stunned in the first two weeks of my gardening magic. Then one day while backing out of the drive, it was brought to my attention that my pot of multi-coloured daisies looked pretty bedraggled. My thought was they needed water and so upon returning home, I

watered and waited for the blooms to resurrect themselves. The purple daisies seemed to thrive for a day. The white and yellow ones required more love than I could provide and I pronounced them dead in the ground in which they came. Finally, the entire pot of blooms withered and died, regardless of the attention they received. I muttered about the quality of product this unsuspecting wouldbe florist had been enticed to buy. Then the potting soil was blamed, then it was the heat of the day and the chill of the evening. Finally, the finger of doom pointed in my direction. The blackness of the thumb was not entirely made up of black ink from our leaky printer. It was a lifetime of slaughtering unsuspecting plants that thought they might be going to a forever kind of home. It might have been forever for them if only Housemate had spirited them away to his side of the yard, where his plants are thriving. My hanging basket, I have to admit is doing well — because Housemate has taken over the care of these lovely blooms. Next year he will be in charge of all floral materials. I bet he will even win the battle against the squirrels with a watering device not entirely devoted to watering the flowers. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Family Day fun fills air with young giggles during Sukanen Museum celebration By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Ponies, car rides and fire truck rides proved most popular at the first ever Family Day at Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum. “A pony!� shouted children as they ran into the trees where the Cozart family had black miniature horses tethered. Youngsters petted and fed them alfalfa cubes and sat on them. Just to the north on a grassy field were three tractors offering rides. The tractor rides were quite busy until the old Mack fire truck came out for rides. “The fire truck almost put us out of business,� jested one of the tractor drivers. Some youngsters were fussy about the tractor they rode. A father was encouraging his son to ride on an old Rumely oil pull tractor. “No, it’s too stinky,� the boy said, choosing to wait for a rubber tired tractor. As one boy left his tractor ride his father said: “Now you can tell Grandpa you rode on a tractor older than him.� A girl was grabbing at something jumping in the grass. “It’s white,� she said putting the hopper on her hand.

A small group watched intently while a rope maker spun a new rope from a machine. Several museum members offered rides in their vintage cars. Pat O’Connor enjoyed taking visitors for rides in his red 1927 Model T open air car that has been in his family forever. Inside the concession youngsters tried their hand at colouring and cookie decorating. Decorators got to eat their handiwork. The concession offered some items at old-fashioned prices — bread and jam for 25 cents, ice cream cone for 25 cents, and cookies for 25 cents. Candy bags and popcorn were each 50 cents. About 400 visitors attended even though thunder and hail warnings were out all day. “We’re pretty pleased with it,� said President Gord Ross. “We had no idea how many to expect. A lot of them had never been there before. That’s what we want.� The museum has been looking for another event and decided after the Canada 150 celebration last July to put on a Family Day with $2 admission and old time prices for concession items to give back to the community.

By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Small Ontario company turns greenhouse gas emissions into algae for feed The Saskatchewan Government and SaskPower have decided not to plough any more cash into expanding the controversial carbon capture technology installed at Boundary Dam in Estevan. There just isn’t enough return on investment in the current carbon capture project. Study into feasibility of the new technology continues. This $1.5 billion project was supposed to save coal-fired generation at Estevan and Coronach from closing over greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Not all is lost. A tiny emerging company in Ontario has plans to turn the Co2 and noxious gases like Sulphur and nitrous oxides from a range of different emission sources into algae used for biofuel to feed livestock and fish and even humans Pond Technologies Inc. of Markham, Ont. has been developing biomass reactors for 10 years. Currently the company has a pilot project at St. Mary’s Cement turning the noxious emissions into feed grade algae. With six plants in North America, the Ontario based cement maker has been working with Pond for six years using research from the National Research Council. The St. Mary’s algae is currently burned instead of petroleum coke but can be used for biofuels or feed. The photo-bioreactor used to capture

emissions and turn them into liquid algae thrives on Co2 and nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen. Within a few days the emissions become algae. In January, Pond announced a $13 million plan at Stelco to convert steel-making emissions. With 44 patents registered worldwide and a promising technology, Pond recently signed a letter of intent to have $100 million U.S. funding for a commercial build-out of the emissions conversion plan. That is not chicken feed, although the end product may feed fowl. A letter of intent is still a long way from actual investment but the news sent Pond stock up almost 20 per cent to $1.61 in late June. Since the $100 million was announced Pond started on a $16 million plant near Markham to produce nutraceuticals (health-related products) from the algae converted out of energy production emissions. The technology is promising. The profits could be gigantic, but the risk is huge. Pond has a mere $11 million assets. This is an interesting story with immense potential yet nowhere near a quality investment. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

No bicycles in Crescent Park; No pets allowed: Can’t you read! Sarah Catterick

Crescent Park is the not-so-hidden gem of Moose Jaw’s downtown area, with its winding pathways, wonderful floral displays, bridges, and waterfall. People of all ages can enjoy a summer afternoon in the park, whether in the spray park, swimming pool, or simply walking along a shaded footpath. Surrounded by apartment complexes and senior liv-

ing accommodations, the park is a popular destination for young adults and seniors alike. However, some seniors have recently reported that the narrow winding pathways have felt increasingly unsafe. Even though prominently posted signs outside the various entrances to Crescent Park state that bicycles are not allowed, the notices seem to be frequently ignored, creating busy, unsafe pathways for visitors to the park. As well, many individuals choose to walk their dogs in the park and often disregard the “No Dogs Allowed” sign, too. Not only do the dog-walkers ignore the signs but they have been known to leave traces of their dog’s dna on the sidwalks and lawns, to the disdain of those wanting to enjoy a walk in beautiful Crescent Park. Let us all make sure Crescent Park is a place for all to enjoy by keeping bicycles safely outside of the park. Moose Jaw also has an Off-Leash Dog Park located at the west end of Hamilton Flats. There man’s best friend can roam free.

Improving Safety On Our Roads MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

Highways are an important part of Saskatchewan’s economic growth and our government has made significant improvements throughout the province in order to keep our economy strong. This year, $924 million has been budgeted to help move people and products more safely and efficiently. Projects this year include work on twinning and adding passing lanes to our busiest highways, highway upgrades and renewal, bridge and culvert rehabilitation, Phase II of the Regina Bypass, and $21 million in grants to support municipal transportation infrastructure. The Regina Bypass will make driving in and around the city of Regina safer, and will help get our export products to market faster. It is the largest infrastruc-

ture project in our province’s history and is representative of our government’s growth plan, and an opportunity to grow our economy. In our local area, Highway 2 North from Moose Jaw to Chamberlain is now a much smoother drive after repaving completed earlier this season. Travelling to Saskatoon, there is a work area near Dundurn where the highway is being resurfaced. Work on the Regina Bypass continues, affecting travel around Regina. Last summer, improvements were made to Moose Jaw’s North Service Road. Under the terms of the provincial Urban Highway Connector Program, the Government of Saskatchewan covered 100 per cent of the eligible cost of approximately $1.875 million. The City of Moose Jaw oversaw the project and is responsible for road maintenance going forward. Improvements on the North Service Road from 9th Avenue Northwest to Main Street included removing the existing asphalt and installing a new subbase, base and asphalt. To ensure proper drainage, the ditches on the north side have been regraded and culverts were replaced and upgraded as necessary. Businesses in the area will benefit from the improved roadway and traffic connecting them to the

provincial highway system. Thank you to all those impacted by construction for their patience while the work was being completed. During the busy highway construction season, the Government of Saskatchewan is reminding drivers to slow down and be alert when entering work zones. Please check the Highway Hotline for road restriction information before planning your trip at Saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline. A highway construction update is published weekly at Saskatchewan.ca to provide the public with the latest details on projects underway. If you encounter a signage problem in a highway work zone, you can call 306-244-5535 to report it. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure operates and maintains 26,000 km of provincial highways. The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $8.4 billion in highways and infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 13,000 kms of provincial highways. This includes more than $3 billion of investments over the last three years. Our government is committed to making travel safer. Let’s all do our part to keep everyone on our roads safe this summer.

RCMP GTH Investigation Today we have sunk to an all-time low in the annals of Saskatchewan’s political processes and proceedings. The RCMP have closed off their investigation into what appeared to be blatant criminal activities regarding certain Regina Bypass land transactions between provincial government officials and private sector individuals which transpired next to the Global Transportation Hub; and then they announced they would not be laying charges! In our very well-informed and investigated opinions, this decision is destined to be written up in Canadian political history textbooks as a judgment that will be forever regarded as tragically misguided. The biggest infrastructure project in Saskatchewan’s history just has to be renamed the biggest land scandal in Saskatchewan’s history. As of today, we are already calling it the greatest miscarriage of justice in Saskatchewan’s history. In the mid 1990’s, 16 of former Premier Grant Devine’s MLAs were convicted of fraud and breach of trust for illegally diverting just under a million dollars from government allowances into a phoney expense-claim scam. According to the evidence we have uncovered and discovered, how could the multi-millions of dollars that passed from our provincial government into the pockets of their closest private enterprise friends not have led to charges? As a famous philosopher once wrote, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.� To all of you political and private sector players: Are you good men? Are you ever going to do the right thing? Nestor Mryglod

PC party of Saskatchewan calls for public inquiry into GTH land deal The PC Party of Saskatchewan is calling for a full Public Inquiry into the Global Transportation Hub (GTH) land deal. “We have learned that the RCMP have decided not to lay criminal charges as a result of their, and Manitoba Justice’s, lengthy investigation into the GTH land deal. This decision, even though disappointing, is not a total surprise� said long-time lawyer and contract prosecutor PC Party President Grant Schmidt. “In our legal system, there are two considerations in determining whether to proceed to prosecute. First is there adequate evidence to convict and second is whether a prosecution would be justified in the public interest. In my mind, the legal decision only reinforces the need for an inquiry into what went so wrong at the GTH and that an inquiry is indeed justified as a matter of public and taxpayer interest.� PC Party Leader Rick Swenson had this to say. “From the very start of the questionable GTH land deal, the PC Party of Saskatchewan has been calling for a full inquiry into why things went so terribly wrong and how the wasting of millions of taxpayer dollars could have happened. This legal decision by no means changes our call for a Public inquiry. During the news conference, the RCMP suggested that

their investigation did not include a judicial subpoena of outside financial records. “To determine what truly happened to taxpayer dollars requires an investigation which follows the money from beginning to end.� Mr. Swenson had this to say, “In September of 2017, then Sask Party Leadership candidate and former Attorney General and current Deputy Premier, Gord Wyant, issued this statement, “without prejudging the outcome, I believe the only way to lift the cloud over the GTH is to shine a very bright and very public light on the entire matter�. Is this still Mr. Wyant’s position? Then, Justice Minister Morgan mused about selling off the GTH completely likely seeing the taxpayer taking another financial bath and burying too many unanswered questions forever because of third party confidentiality. Before a Sask Party fire sale is allowed to happen at the GTH, I challenge the Premier to heed the advice of Mr. Wyant and call for a full public inquiry today. The public and more importantly, the taxpayers of Saskatchewan, deserve to know the truth at the GTH before they vote in another election.� *PC Party of Saskatchewan Press Release dated July 26th, 2018

Gaming profits take small reduction in government casinos By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express Will be performing at Crescent Park Amphitheatre , Moose Jaw Wednesday, August 15, 2018 7:00pm to 8:30pm Proceeds to the Health Foundation To help purchase a State of the Art Ultra Sound Please come and Enjoy 1 1/2 hours of Good Country Music Doug Dixon on Drums, Earl Holmes, Lead Guitar, Randy Reimer, Steel Guitar, Chris Magowan-Lawrence, Bass Guitar and Alice Magowan 12 String Guitar and Vocal

Less money spent at Saskatchewan Government casinos and less slot machine play cost the provincial government treasury $1.1 million. Casinos Moose Jaw and Regina profits were down just about three per cent to $23.2 million for the year ended March 31, 2018. The Sask. Gaming annual report indicates revenues were down by $4.7 million for the year with nearly three-quarters of the lost income in reduced slot machine play. The lower profit is partly blamed on lower average play, partly on a slowdown in the economy, and partly on cross-Canada maturing of the gaming industry.

Operating expenses were cut by $2 million with 60 per cent of that from less wages and employee benefits. Customer count was about the same with 2,200 guests per day in Moose Jaw — 711,000 for the year, with 2.8 million in Regina. The corporation still earned an astounding 31 per cent return on assets. President and CEO Susan Flett said the corporation is in the second year of a five-year program to revitalize the casino properties “to attract and grow the future gambling market.� During the year, activities along that line included introduction of cutting edge games, addition in

Regina of Thursday night poker tournaments and selecting show lounge entertainment to attract a younger audience. Casino Moose Jaw celebrated 15 years in operation and awarded a prize to the millionth guest. Satisfaction surveys showed 78.1 per cent guest satisfaction; 91.7 per cent mystery shopper satisfaction; and 85.7 per cent young guest satisfaction. Two new directors were appointed to the board — Cadmus Delorme, chief of the Cowessess First Nation; and Ernest Standingready, a 20-year veteran of the Saskatchewan gaming industry Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Highway to Heroes visitor makes unexpected connection at 15 Wing show By Joyce and Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express Photos by Ron Walter

The Highway to Heroes Car Show and Concert was the best car show ever for a Medicine Hat participant. Keith McMann came to display his Yamaha military tribute bike and support the military and went home jubilant. The tribute bike features air brushed photos of all three branches. Two men in military flight suits came by, spotting the well-known photo of a Canadian soldier extending a hand to an Afghan boy. Contacted by phone McMann recalled: “Hey, that’s you,” said one of them. “It is.” At first McMann didn’t believe him. “As he talked more, I figured it out.” The soldier in the photo, Warrant Officer Mike Dwyer, second in command of the SkyHawks parachute team, signed the airbrushed photo with a sharpie that an excited McMann borrowed. Dwyer was involved in several tours in Afghanistan. Rod Dyck of Warman had his Harley parked next to McMann when Dwyer came by. “He started taking pictures and asking questions,” said Dyck, who shared his photos with The Express. “It then came out that he was the soldier in the picture.” The tribute bike owner was excited. “He came running over. Guess what? Guess what? This is the guy in the picture.” “I was surprised,” said Dyck. “What are the odds of that?” “It was mind-blowing,” said McMann. “It was crazy. My wife got emotional over it.” He’s been going to Show and Shines with his bike since 2006. “This tops them all.” The tribute bike came about from his interest in the military. “Our neighbours were vets. My brother was in the Navy. I was in the Air Cadets.” In 2010, he stated having a friend airbrush photos on the bike, a 2005 Yamaha V-Max, not built for timid riders. McMann is a truck driver when not attending car shows. Organized by the 15 Wing Fellowship, the July 15 show at 15 Wing attracted 532 vehicles and 8,290 visitors to see a broad range of vehicles, flypasts by the Hawk training jets, the Harvard turbo prop trainers, and a full performance by the world-famous Snowbirds at their home base. A scheduled parachute jump by the SkyHawks was cancelled when winds became too gusty. Lineups were long during the day — for tours of the air traffic control tower, at food concessions and admission gates. Opening for the concert was 15 Wing flight instructor Capt. Rich MacDougall and his band. The Uncoolas, featuring Moose Jaw’s Aaron Ruston, performed as the main concert act. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

888 Main St. N. Moose Jaw, SK


Although some peaches are available yearround in grocery stores, none are of the quality of those raised in the orchards of Canada and available for a short time during the summer. This week’s recipes give pride of place to the fresh peaches now arriving to be eaten in hand or preserved for winter’s enjoyment. ••• Peach Salsa 6 cups peaches (about 3 lbs.) 1 1/4 cups chopped red onion 4 jalapeùo peppers, finely chopped, optional 1 red pepper, chopped 1/2 cup loosely packed finely chopped cilantro 1/2 cup white vinegar 2 tbsps. liquid honey 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 1 1/2 tsps. ground cumin 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper Fill boiling water canner with water. Place 8 clean half-pint mason jars in canner over high heat. Place lids in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Blanch, peel, pit and chop peaches to measure 6 cups. Combine peaches, onion, peppers, cilantro, vinegar, honey, garlic, cumin and pepper in a large stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Boil gently for five minutes, stirring frequently. Ladle salsa into the hot jars within 1/4 inch of top rim. Remove air bubbles by sliding a rubber spatula between glass and food. Wipe jar rims to remove any stickiness. Place lids on and apply screw band until fingertip tight. Place jars in canner. Cover canner and return water to a boil. Process 10 minutes. Remove jars and cool for 24 hours. Check jar seals to ensure lids curve downward. Store in a cool dark place. ••• Peach Rum Sauce 6 cups peaches, chopped grated rind of 1/2 lemon 2 cups brown sugar 2 cups granulated sugar 3/4 cup rum

Blanch peel, pit and chop peaches. Fill boiling water canner with water and place clean half-pint jars in canner over medium heat. Combine peaches, lemon rind, sugars and rum in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil gently for about 20 minutes, until thick. Stir frequently. Place sauce in sterilized jars, remove air bubbles and place lids on jars. Place in canner and process at a boil for 10 minutes. Store in a cool place. Makes 7 jars. Serve over cake, ice cream or other fruit desserts. ••• Peach Pie Filling 12 cups blanched, peeled, pitted and sliced peaches 3 inch cinnamon stick 2 tsps. whole cloves 2 2/3 cups granulated sugar 2 cups peeled, finely chopped apples 1 cup golden raisins 1/2 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup white vinegar 2 tbsps. grated lemon rind 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg Prepare peaches. Tie cinnamon stick and whole cloves in a square of cheesecloth to create a spice bag. Combine peaches, spice bag, sugar, apples, raisins, lemon juice, vinegar, lemon rind and nutmeg in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and boil gently for 60-75 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened. Sterilize four pint jars in a boiling water canner. Boil lids for five minutes. Discard spice bag then ladle filling into the hot jars. Remove air bubbles, clean rims and place lids on jars. Place jars in hot water bath and process at a boil for 15 minutes. Cool and store in cool place. Prior to turning filling into a prepared pie shell, add 2 tbsps. corn starch to a pint of filling and stir until well blended. Each jar contains enough filling for one pie. Bake as usual. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel. net

And now for something truly stimulating‌ by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor I recently came across two words that I had never known to even exist. “Mechanotransduction and “chondroprotectionâ€?. Now, I’m a guy that is pretty much hooked on crossword puzzles and Scrabble but I have yet to come across these game winners. I was looking for any research on the effects of weight bearing and arthritis of the knees and came across an interesting study which used the phrase, “mechanotransduction of chondroprotection.â€? Now, I could figure out what chondroprotection meant, as I knew “chondroâ€? means “cartilageâ€? and “protectionâ€? is pretty much self-explanatory. So chondroprotection, essentially refers to protecting a joint, maybe from arthritis. I had to use the internet to help me figure out mechanotransduction. It refers to the conversion of a mechanical or physical stimulus into chemical or electrical activity. A great example of mechanotransduction is the sense of hearing. Air pressure changes in the ear can stimulate the sense of sound in the brain. But what does all this have to do with arthritis of the knee? Apparently, moderate mechanical loading of the cartilage of the knee can help prevent the knee from wearing out. We often imagine that when the knee, or any other joint in the body, undergoes too much stress, it can suffer early wear and tear, early arthritis. But we now know that not enough activity can be as bad for a joint as too much activity.

Studies show that when there is a moderate amount of weight bearing activity on the knee, it stimulates a chemical pathway that helps to protect cartilage and possibly stimulates growth of joint tissue as well. The really neat thing about this “mechanostimulation of chondroprotection� is that scientists now know this chemical pathway so well that they can mimic it in a lab setting. Put another way, they can trick cartilage into growing and protecting itself without adding any mechanical stress. This kind of research is a reminder for how important physical exercise is in keeping joints healthy. That moderate, weight bearing type of exercise is essential for helping to prevent arthritis in the knees, hips and ankles. How much mechanical loading is considered “moderate�? That is the tough question to answer. There are so many other factors to consider, especially diet, as what we eat can greatly affect the onset of arthritis. Research even shows that metabolic syndrome is a risk factor for arthritis in the knees. While nothing can replace the positive effects that exercise has on our joints, this kind of research is intriguing in that one day a medication or nutraceutical may exist that can mimic the positive effects of weight bearing exercise for those who lack the ability to get mobile, like those affected by some type physical disability.

Toyota customer days Moose Jaw Toyota was a busy place during the weekend, as the local dealership held their annual Customer Appreciation Days. Patrons could feast on barbecue hot dogs, cool down with a snowcone, have their face painted or receive a henna tattoo and even hop around in a bouncy castle. And, of course, check out the multitude of vehicles on display during the dealership’s Co-roll-a Thon sales event. Donations were accepted at each activity, with all proceeds going to Joe’s Place.

The Bounce Castles were a popular destination for the kids.

CORNER Pepper Me In the grand scheme of things, we are still rookie gardeners. As we learn and grow (pun intended), our 5 year-old garden rewards us with new and exciting vegetables, berries and fruit. It is very rewarding to pick enough apples for a few pies from a tree that only, by Dale “bushy” Bush a few years ago, was struggling to get past the twig stage of its life…and, we can eat our breakfast in the garden…from the garden. Gardening life is sweet. The rewards are often just as sweet but there are exceptions…peppers. We have been successful with growing great tasting tomatoes of a few basic varieties and thought that our fresh off-the-vine salsa sauce needed some spicing up or as Mrs. B suggested some ZZZZING. I have always enjoyed a bit of hotness in a chili or a sauce. Unfortunately, I usually regret my spicy adventures a few hours later so I have been respectful of the red hot chili peppers…and not the popular rock band, although the Red Hot Chili Peppers are hot. Three years ago, we got the urge to pepper. We planted 2 type of peppers and enjoyed a sweet bell pepper and a habanero that had a little higher Sco-

ville rating, which is how the smartypantsknowitallguys rate the hotness of a pepper. 0 Scoville units would be the sweet bell peppers that could be eaten anytime anywhere, with no preparation needed; the habanero we grew would be in the 2000 Scoville range. I thought myself to be a hot shot hot pepper guy because I could scarf down salsa and chips with a Scoville rating of a few thousand. Then I tried my neighbour Dusty Miller’s salsa sauce made with one “Ring of Fire” pepper with Scoville rating of ONLY 20,000. Not only did I gain a new respect for homegrown peppers, the next morning I discovered why that pepper had been named “Ring Of Fire”. Hint… it wasn’t anything to do with Johnny Cash. I have so much to learn about peppers! Last year we learned that we could dry our harvest and enjoy the hotness of a summer by having salsa in the winter with dried habaneros. I began to get adventurous and would buy some peppers from exotic places like Thailand and Mexico at the grocery store, so we could taste and then grow some different peppers in the garden. There is some pepper variety at the grocery store but to experience a greater variety of Scoville ratings, prepared chili sand hot sauces seem to be the ticket to the exotics. Not only is the search for pepperdom heart-burningly exciting, the names of some of the concoctions are equally exciting and entertaining with names like “Colon Clean-

er” and “Rectum Reamer”. I used to have a bottle of hot sauce on my hot dog cart named Hemorrhoid Helper. When someone asked for the hottest condiment, there is always someone who asks; good old HH would give me a few moments of good clean fun…For the sauce, the usual reaction was a deep red face as the blood vessels tried to deal with Scoville ratings in the 20,000’s. Then came the gasping for cool air followed by an uncontrollable urge to drink liquids such as water, beer, or to suck on a liquid fire extinguisher. The experts suggest drinking cold milk or eating cool cucumber slices. Unfortunately for me, eating cucumber would give me worse heart burn than the hot sauce. I am eager to enjoy our first salsa from this year’s garden. If the bright red pepper we grew lives up to its billing, I should be able to start a campfire with a simple fart.

Festival of Words 20

by Janet Kilgannon f

From Giller Prize-winning novelists to Governor General’s Awards winners, from emergent writers, poets and even motivational speakers, there was something for everyone (or should I say many things for everyone) at this summer’s Saskatchewan Festival of Words. Moose Jaw has hosted this renowned literary event for 22 years and it is continuing to gain in stature on the Canadian literary landscape. Authors and publishers are always delighted by the venue, ranging from the Library to the Art Gallery Theatre, to Mae Wilson Theatre, the Cultural Centre and Mosaic Place. The chance to spend time at Temple Gardens Hotel and Spa is just the icing on the cake.

Tanya Talaga and your book just won the RBC Taylor Prize, and you have now been selected to deliver the 2019 Massey lectures, and you promise to be a presenter at next year’s FoW once your amazing work-load had been completed, could those in attendance really be upset? It actually provided once more situation in Canadian literature to celebrate. The popular FoW features continued. Trivia Night with Fish and Chips highlighted knowledge and skill, the Poetry Slam Competition was as energizing and brilliant as ever. On Friday, the trio of Tom Wayman, John Lent and Mark Nishihara took us through the ‘music of literature’ in honour of Bob Dylan’s winning of the Nobel Prize, the first lyricist ever to be so recognized. On Saturday evening, Rubarb productions reminded us of the joy of small towns in a musical version of Stephen Leacock’s ‘Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town’. The film ‘Indian Horse’ received its Moose Jaw premiere. All the while, 24 authors and poets led sessions for their fans and followers.

The Festival included a wildly whimsical Storytime for Little Ones, during which author Gary Barwin created new fairy tales based on familiar ones, with help from the audience of primary school-aged students. Kids Ink featured children’s book writer Kai Cheng Thom, who introduced the young people to her book ‘From the Stars in the Sky to the Fish in the Sea’ and had them delightedly singing the rhyme that moved The Festival wishes to thank its major funders - The the story forward.

City Hall Council Notes Final zoning regulations set for cannabis outlets

Distance from schools, parks determined by city; production facilities also set Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The City of Moose Jaw has moved one step closer to being ready for the day marijuana becomes legal recreationally throughout Canada. City council gave the third and final reading to zoning amendment bylaw 5563 (4), which sets the minimum distance stores selling cannabis must be located away from schools, daycares and parks in order to limit the exposure children might receive to the drug. Cannabis retail stores must now be located 166 metres away from any school – about two or three blocks in most areas -- as well as a minimum of 83 metres from licensed daycares and parks, with the exception of Crescent Park due to its close proximity to the downtown core. The no-zone there will be 60 metres. The plan was one of five presented to executive committee earlier in the year featuring a variety of distances and potential additions and subtractions to the bylaw, with the current map selected from that list. The bylaw also created zones where cannabis production can occur in the city, including the Grayson Business Park in the north and a large swath of land in the Hamilton Flats area extending nearly to city limits in the west. Council was presented with a bit of a conundrum in the lead-up to approving the bylaw, as Joe Dueck of Joe’s Place spoke to council with the goal of having his youth drop-in centre included among one of the buffer zones. “In the last two months, 324 different youth have used our programs. As a side note, some of the youth who attend have either in their family’s or personal histories have had prior struggles with drugs and alcohol, which makes having a cannabis retail store near us even more concerning,” Dueck said. “We feel having a cannabis retail store near a place where youth 14 to 19 gather is simply not in the best interest of their health and safety.” Dueck included a medical study from Amsterdam that showed the closer geographically underage youth live and gather to a cannabis coffee shop, the greater the chance is they’ll use cannabis, where the further away they live, the lower the rates of underage cannabis abuse. He also pointed to the federal government’s main reason for legalizing cannabis in the first place: to keep cannabis out of the hands of youth, saying that that goal has been lost when it comes to the current zoning plan. Coun. Chris Warren responded, saying that the age limits combined with the strict identification policies

Final zoning regulations set for cannabis outlets

and training required of staff along with the advertising and display restrictions provided a rigorous framework to prevent youth accessing the drug. Warren added that the bylaw might not be perfect in it’s current form and could receive revision in the future, which could include an exemption for youth centres. Then there’s potential for a slippery slope. “There’s already a lot of institutional separation in the current bylaw, and I’d be worried where the line would be drawn,” Warren said. “I know there’s youth groups in a lot of the churches, there’s the YMCA and things like that. So I’d wonder where someone would draw the line if we were wanting to include places that youth frequent.” Warren added that he appreciated the presentation and the concern surrounding what the unknowns of legal cannabis might bring, but that a balance needed to be found so the businesses could conduct business. The third and final reading passed unanimously and without amendment. **** City council also gave first and second readings to bylaw 5561, the Municipal Airport Authority Bylaw, which will create an organization to oversee operations at the Moose Jaw Municipal Airport. The bylaw will go through the third and final reading at the council meeting on Aug. 13. **** Council designated the Hillcrest Golf Club’s drop zone expansion and washroom development as an official municipal project until Dec. 2022.

Distance from schools, parks determined by city; production facilities also set

The project is currently underway at an estimated cost of $400,000 to renovate the existing clubhouse and pro shop, expand the seating area and add washroom facilities to the building as part of a three- to four-year phase of improvements at the local facility. Receiving the designation as a municipal project allows the Hillcrest to receive donations and issue tax-deductible receipts. **** Coun. Brian Swanson brought forward a motion to change the winter road maintenance policy in the city, which would see the city divided into five zones and use contractors for four of those zones and city employees on the fifth. Coming on the heels of Coun. Warren’s extensive review accepted at the previous meeting of council, Swanson hoped to see a more immediate solution to the current snow-clearing situation outside of that review’s scope, due to the length of time it will take to have its proposed changes take hold. He and Coun. Dawn Luhning pointed to the current difficulties the city has when it comes to efficiently clearing snow and how waiting until late fall – when city administration expects to have the first response to Warren’s review – could be too late to deal with the issue. The majority of council pointed to the comprehensiveness of Warren’s plan and decided to let it run it’s course, given how any recommendations could lead to the very changes Swanson was planning on even enhance them. The motion was defeated 3-2.

Rosedale Cemetery to tentatively receive new columbaria, upgrades Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express City of Moose Jaw’s executive committee approved a major upgrade to the Rosedale Cemetery columbaria and the surrounding area during their meeting on July 23. The city parks and recreation department was authorized to proceed with the purchase and installation of two new columbaria, as the existing storage capacity currently in place is nearing the maximum level. The project will also include revitalization of the park area the columbaria currently sits on, as the brick base has cracked and shifted in addition to allowing weeds to break through in places. The total cost of $65,700 will out of the columbarium reserve fund. Once all the spots from the old and new columbaria are sold, a total of $151,000 would be returned to the fund.

The Rosedale Cemetery will be soon be seeing the addition of two new columbaria.

**** Scott Hellings of the Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee delivered the organization’s most recent report, which included a request from Wakamow Valley

to deal with the deteriorating roof at the Jitney Dance Hall. A municipal heritage property, the hall has seen damage to it’s structure and has even had concerns of being a fire hazard

**** In an in-camera decision released to the public, it was moved that city administration be authorized to award the banking services tender to Scotia Bank for the period of five years commencing on the date of the execution of the agreement. The approved motions go before council for final approval at the next regular meeting on Aug. 13.

Mary Poppins The Musical begins run at Mae Wilson Theatre RuBarb Productions show to feature 14 performances through Aug. 19 Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

One of the most popular Disney films of all time is taking over the stage at Mae Wilson Theatre for a three-week run of performances. Rubarb Productions kicked off their showing of ‘Mary Poppins The Musical’ on July 27, with a total of 14 performances set to take place through Aug. 19 at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre. It’s all the culmination of months of preparation and just over a month of rehearsal with the full cast, with the first public glimpse of the production taking place at a media call on the afternoon prior to the first show of the run – with the ‘Perfect Nanny’, ‘Feed the Birds’ and ‘Chim Chim Cher-ee’ scenes taking the stage during the preview. “There’s a lot of details that go into the show, and when you get to a week like this, all the layers you worked on from the beginning, starting with the music and the choreography and the acting, all of that gets layered in with technical aspects like spotlights, special effects, lighting, projections, microphones, all of these switches and swaps that happen backstage,” said RuBarb Productions director Evie Koop Sawatsky, who will be working on her 35th production with the local professional theatre company.

“It’s been an amazing experience, Mary Poppins has always been one of my dream roles and I’m so excited that I get to play it,” -Julia Dunne “The exciting thing about a show like this, since we’re doing it for three weeks, we get a chance to live in the characters and grow as a team and tighten everything up over time. Everyone wants to do their best and everyone loves there role, and it’s incredible to see it come together.” Julia Dunne carries the titular role of Mary Poppins, finding herself taking the stage in one of her all-time favourite performances. “It’s been an amazing experience, Mary Poppins has always been one of my dream roles and I’m so excited that I get to play it,” Dunne said. “Just working with this amazing cast has made this experience so wonderful.” Preparation for the production has gone as well as any of the principals could have hoped, something that has made the show that much more fun for everyone involved in the assessment of Ken Spencer, who plays the bank chairman and a handful of other roles.

Marianne Woods sings ‘Feed the Birds’ in her role of Bird Woman during Mary Poppins the Musical rehearsal. “It depends so much on the cast, but this is a very dedicated cast, they’re very easy to get along with and they’re giving it their all and doing their best,” Spencer said. “There’s nothing more rewarding than being part of a team and making it all come together.” Of course, the heart of ‘Mary Poppins’ is the music, with performances by Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke and the rest of the original cast holding up as some of the most famous movie music in history. Living up to those performances has taken some practice, with the RuBarb cast looking to put their heart and soul into living up to the original’s level. “You prepare as much as you can, there will be songs that will be in your head no matter how old you get to be,” said Marianne Woods, who plays the dual roles of Mrs. Brill and the famous Bird Woman. “We’ve had lots of prep with our musical director and accompianist Josh Carley and we have a wonderful orchestra; there’s been time in the last few weeks to work on music that’s an important aspect of the show because you have cue lines and dialogue and music and entrances happening all the time” Geoffrey Tyler, who plays George Bank in the show, pointed out that with so much familiarity when it comes to songs from the show -- including legendary tunes such as ‘The Perfect Nanny’, ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’, ‘Feed the Birds’ and ‘Chim Chim Cher-ee’ – there can be added expectations when it comes to performance time. “It’s like ‘oh, it’s ‘Mary Poppins’, I can’t wait to hear ‘Supercalifragilistic’ or any of the other songs they really want to here, and that’s nice,” Tyler said. “But they’re hearing them and we actually get to sing them, which is fun because they’re all

songs we love to perform as well, which just helps add to the show.” And then there’s the small army of volunteers working behind the scenes to make everything come together without a hitch. The show’s performer’s were quick to laud

the backstage crew for how well they’ve been able to make things come together, something that was echoed by Koop. “Our job is to make it look easy and we use the fly system at the Cultural Centre here a lot to hide the craziness that’s going on backstage and it’s really interesting,” she said. “Our job is to make it look easy out front, when (someone) comes backstage or they listen in on the comms system, it just keeps going. You don’t realize how many people are running on their hamster wheels in the back to make it look effortless in the front.” ‘Mary Poppins The Musical’ has seen three performances through the end of July, with the show continuing with 7:30 p.m. start times on Aug 7, 9, 10, 14 and a three-day run Aug. 16-18. There will also be 2 p.m. shows on Aug. 4, 18 and 19 to go along with a relaxed performance at 2 p.m. on Aug. 15 with relaxed expectations towards audience movement and sound. Tickets start at $41.90 for adult premium seating and $23.90 for children’s standard seats and are available at the RuBarb box office, by calling 306-693-1771 and online at www.rubarb.ca.

University hearing study seeks participants.

Connect Hearing, with hearing researcher Professor Kathy Pichora-Fuller at the University of Toronto, seeks participants who are over 50 years of age and have never worn hearing aids for a hearing study investigating factors that can influence better hearing. All participants will have a hearing test provided at no charge and if appropriate, the clinician may discuss hearing rehabilitation options including hearing aids. Qualifying participants may also receive a demo of the latest hearing technology. The data collected from this study will be used to further our understanding of hearing loss and improve life-changing hearing healthcare across Canada. Why participate in the hearing study? Hearing problems typically result from damage to the ear and researchers have spent decades trying to understand the biology behind hearing loss. More importantly, researchers now realize the need to better understand how hearing

loss affects your everyday life*. In this new hearing study, Professor Pichora-Fuller and her team are trying to find out how people learn to live with hearing loss and how new solutions could help these people take action sooner and live life more fully. It is estimated that 46% of people aged 45 to 87 have some degree of hearing loss1, but most do not seek treatment right away. In fact, the average person with hearing loss will wait ten years before seeking help2. This is because at the beginning stages of hearing loss people often find they can “get by” without help, however as the problem worsens this becomes increasingly harder to do. For some people this loss of clarity is only a problem at noisy restaurants or in the car, but for others it makes listening a struggle throughout the entire day. By studying people who have difficulty hearing in noise or with television, we hope to identify key factors impacting these difficulties and further understand their influence on the treatment process.

If you are over 50 years of age and have never worn hearing aids, you can register to be a part of this new hearing study† by calling: 1.888.242.4892 or visiting connecthearing.ca/hearing-study.

Miller Express close out regular season Finish with 23-25 record, face Weyburn in playoffs first round Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

With their playoff position all but settled heading into the final week of the season, it was a bit of the wild and wacky for the Moose Jaw Miller Express through their last five games of the year. Pitchers hitting clean-up, relievers in the field and even a forfeit in the last game of the Western Major Baseball League season. The end of it all saw the Express cap the campaign with a 23-25 record, good enough for fourth place in the WMBL’s Eastern Division and a date with the Weyburn Beavers (37-11) in the first round of the playoffs. The Express began the week with an 8-7 win over the Melville Millionaires on July 24 before falling 6-3 to Yorkton on July 25 and 9-0 to Weyburn on July 26. Weekend action saw the Express edge Regina 12-11 and fall 5-4 to the Beavers. Their July 29 season finale was forfeited by the Melville Millionaires – meaning their billet appreciation and ultimate 50-50 draw will take place before Game 3 of their series with the Beavers on Aug. 2. Express 8, Melville 7 After the Millionaires scored four in the bottom of the eighth to take a 7-6 lead, Brooks Benson hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to tie the game before Ty Barclay singled home John Prudholm with the game-winning run in the 12th inning. Markus Gregson continued to swing a hot bat since moving from the bullpen to first base, going 3-for-5 with a run scored and run batted in. Mitchell Robinson got the start, giving up five runs on

Miller Express pitcher Mitchell Robinson delivers in recent action eight hits and striking out nine while pitching into the eighth inning. Yorkton 6, Express 3 Jesse Marks gave up four runs in six innings of work and struck out seven, but the Express offence was unable to turn that solid start into a win. Barclay was 1-for-3 with two runs scored, Blake Gallagher 2-for-3 with a run and Gregson 2-for-4. Weyburn 9, Express 0 With a number of the Express’ regular starters getting the

night off, the line-up against the Beavers was rather unusual – Robinson hitting fourth, Nick Falco playing left field and pitching and Moose Jaw’s own Reece Helland slotting in at designated hitter. Gregson got the start and gave up four runs on nine hits in taking the loss. Beavers starter Reid Wall was the beneficiary of the light-hitting line-up, pitching a complete game two-hitter while striking out 14. Express 12, Regina 11 Trailing 11-8 heading into the eighth, the Express put three runs across to tie the game and another one in the ninth to pick up the win. Gregson led the offensive outburst with a 4-for-6 outing with a run and an RBI, Benson was 3-for-5 with two runs and two RBI, John Prudhom 2-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in. Starter Ryder Yakel gave up five runs on 11 hits in four innings; Logan Hofmann was the winning pitcher. Weyburn 5, Express 4 Robinson and Ty Schindel each hit solo home runs in the back-and-forth battle that could be a preview of how close the playoffs could be. Mason Garispe took the loss after giving up four runs on nine hits in four innings. The first round of the playoffs began July 31 and Aug. 1 in Weyburn, with Game 3 at Ross Wells Park Aug. 2 and Game 4 if necessary on Aug. 3. Game 5 will be in Weyburn on Aug. 4.

Midget AAA Generals hold first summer camp Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express The Moose Jaw Generals are preparing for the coming Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League season. Last season the Generals had no less than 17 first-year players. With a host of veterans eligible to return and with the potential of an exceptional campaign in the works, head coach Ray Wareham and his staff decided to gather the troops for a summer camp filled with not only onice sessions, but plenty of extracurricular fun stuff, as well. “It was the first time we’d done something like this and we were very pleased with how it went,” Wareham said. “We felt the kids worked their butts off all week and it was really intense, plus they got to have some fun. We went golfing and kayaking with them. We just didn’t want it to be all about hockey... So, we really enjoyed the week and thought the kids really performed well.” The camp featured the majority of players expected to form the core of the 2018-19 squad, as well as a handful of players who have shown interest in joining the team, with the additional goal of giving the large roster of returnees and newcomers a chance to get a feel for their potential position in the pecking order. “We wanted to be fair to the guys who had opportunities to maybe try and crack other teams, because we have so many guys returning,” Wareham said. “We thought we could have this camp now and this would give them plenty of time to look at different options if they didn’t feel comfortable here; and of course

there are guys who are young kids, 15-year-olds who we’d like to have back and AP for us. We thought it was a huge success and something we’ll look to do again in the future.” One aspect Wareham found most impressive was the overall work ethic he and his coaches saw on the ice at Barkman Arena in Caronport – while a summer camp could be looked at as just some extra free ice time, that certainly wasn’t how the players reacted to it. “What was interesting for us is the veteran group led the way ... sometimes veterans can come into camp and not work their hardest, but they were probably the hardest working guys on the ice,” Wareham said. “They’re all looking ahead to this season... we knew the situation we were in last year; we knew it was going to be bumpy, but the guys came back and really improved and we saw that.” Next up will be pre-season mini-camp during the Aug. 18 weekend before teams hit their respective junior camps, followed by the beginning of the season following the Labour Day weekend.

Excelsior win Schwan’s Cup

International tournament victory one of most impressive in Moose Jaw soccer history Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Guest players play important role with Excelsior

Moose Jaw Excelsior FC gather for a team photo after winning the Schwan’s USA Cup U-19 Silver division.

When the Excelsior FC soccer club started in 2012, the goal was to do things a little differently when it came to working with elite players in the city – fewer games, more training and a steady focus on improvement. That strategy turned into one of the most impressive tournament victories in Moose Jaw soccer history over the July 21 weekend at the Schwan’s USA Cup. The Excelsior FC Under-19 girls soccer team put together a 4-0-2 record at the event, winning their final three games through the playoffs to claim gold in the U19 Girls Silver division. The USA Cup is a massive tournament featuring featuring over 1,000 boys and girls teams ranging from U9 to U19, playing at the expansive 60-field National Sports Center in Blaine, Minn. “When we started Excelsior, one of the goals was to do something a little bigger than just provincials,” said Jason Jones of JJ Soccer, which runs the Excelsior program. “Get out there and play teams that are from the U.S. and other places in Canada and if you get lucky maybe a Mexico or Spain or something.” Ostensibly, it’s all just about new experiences and having a chance to be part of something as impressive in scope as the USA Cup. That is, of course, unless you happen win the whole thing. “Everything just aligned perfectly for the girls, they came in playing the way we asked them to play, right from the beginning at U12 and up, the stars aligned for them and it was very special to watch,” Jones said. Excelsior’s appearance at the tournament was the second for the team after reaching the quarter-final in their division last year. “I think we really learned a lot from the first time we were down there, we really knew what to expect in regards to going through and what to do with respect to penalty shootouts and how the draw was drafted,” Jones said. “We came back with things from last season and credit to the girls and (coaches) Rob (Francis) and Shasta (McCulloch), we put some things in place and were able to work on them.” Excelsior opened with a a 4-4 draw with HFC United out of Hastings, Minn. Aidan McLoone scored three times for the local squad, kicking off an incredible offensive effort for one of the team’s three guest players (see sidebar). Allison Billy scored Excelsior’s other goal. Next up was host Blaine, Minn. FC and a 1-1 draw, with McLoone picking up the lone marker. As it turns out, that would be the last time they’d do anything but win the rest of the week.

“The girls knew what needed to be done, they didn’t let themselves get in over their heads, they took it one game and one half at a time. The biggest thing was that they were able to make adjustments on the fly during the game,” Jones said. “When teams showed us something different, we were able to change how we played.” The final game of the round robin against the Shakopee, Minn. Sabers showed that. Playing on a short-grass field and in wet conditions, Excelsior struggled to get on the end of through-balls and at around the 10 minute mark made an adjustment – short passes, keep the ball on the ground and move the ball up the field that way. “That changed the game for us, we were able to take control,” Jones said.”In year’s past that would have been difficult for the girls to do, but they were able to execute and it made a huge difference.” The end result was a 6-0 win, with McLoone scoring four times and Maisie Chamberlain adding their other marker. That sent Excelsior into the quarter-final, where they ran into Two Harbors, Minn. SC and ended up in a game for the ages. McLoone scored twice and Didumo Omot once in regulation, with the game ending up tied 3-3 through regulation and overtime -- setting the stage for an impressive performance by Sage McCulloch. After splitting time in goal with Gillian Francis, McCulloch got the nod in the penalty shoot-out. Two Harbors scored on their first shot and McCulloch took the second shot for Excelsior. She scored, went back in goal and made three straight saves to give Excelsior the win. “She did a great job and really came through for us when we needed it the most,” Jones said. The semifinal saw Excelsior face Gremio FC out of Chicago, ending up in another game that needed extra time after regulation finished 1-1. There, McLoone scored her second of the game in the first half of overtime, giving Moose Jaw the 2-1 win. The championship game against Saint Peter, Minn. Soccer was a back-and-forth battle that saw long-time Excelsior veteran Gillian Francis score the lone goal of the contest. And with that, the celebration was on. “It was just an incredible week and I couldn’t be prouder of the girls,” Jones said. “To play that well against that kind of competition and end up winning it all, it’s amazing.”

Aidan McLoone is most certainly a name Moose Jaw soccer fans aren’t familiar with. And yet there she was, scoring 11 goals in six games for Excelsior as the local squad won their division at the Schwan’s USA Cup. As it turns out, McLoone and two of her teammates -- midfielder Eliza Lynch and defender Danielle Anderson -- were ‘guest player’ pickups from a team based in New Prague, Minn., called on by Excelsior manager Jason Jones to help bolster the team in the all-important tournament. What makes it interesting is the trio weren’t part of the National Sports Center pool of players compiled for the USA Cup. No, it was a relationship from years ago – and a guest player appearance back then – that saw McLoone and her teammates take the field for a team from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Back in 2015, Alexis Jones – Jason’s daughter – attended the USA Cup in the NSC pool as a potential guest player. As you probably already guessed, she ended up getting the call from New Prague. Her experience with the team was nothing but positive, so when Jones was looking for guests for Excelsior in 2018, the choice was obvious. “ I reached out to the coach of the team that picked up Alexis and asked if he had anyone who was available and he was like ‘oh my gosh, yes, how many do you need’. And we said ‘three’,” Jones explained. “The three he selected were just perfect for us...They were so good because they had such great attitudes and were such great team players.” McLoone proved to be an essential finisher for the team, with her hat trick in Excelsior’s opening game just a sampling of things to come. “She was our striker and it was her job to score goals and she really came through for us,” Jones said. “All three of them played so well... The chemistry we had with them was amazing, it was like they had been with us from the beginning. They fit in with the way we played, they were very coachable and they fit right in with our system.” Jones pointed to a moment that showed just how much the New Prague players felt the same way about their Excelsior teammates. When it came to the penalty shoot-out in the quarter-final, the trio asked if the list of shooters had been set before asking to be placed as far down the list as they could. Why? “They said ‘we don’t want to be at fault if your team doesn’t win this and go through’,” Jones explained. “They didn’t want that pressure, they were there to help us, and they were very happy that we were going to take that on. It meant that much to them, that letting us down would have been too much. “So we have nothing but amazing things to say about the girls who joined us because they were a true class act.”

Hustlers fall in provincial semifinal

Colts also make playoff round in women’s C provincial tournament Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

All in all, it turned out to be a decent weekend for a pair of local teams at the Softball Saskatchewan Women’s ‘C’ provincial championships at Caribou Heights. Perfect weather, solid crowds, impressive competition and playoff appearances for the Park Hotel Colts and Moose Jaw Hustlers saw to it that the tournament was an all-around success. “It was a pretty good weekend, the weather was great and we had compliments on our diamonds, not a lot delays or any of that stuff, and a lot of good ball.,” said tournament organizer and Colts veteran Caralie Wait. “A lot of these people can hit the ball hard, and there were minimal errors, just good ball all around.”

“You’d always like to make the final, but we’re proud of how we played this weekend and we’re proud of how we’ve played the last couple of weeks,” -Nicole Ansell.

The Hustlers ended up with the top local performance, reaching the tournament semifinals with a 2-1 record before defeating Saskatoon Connextion 5-0 in the quarter-final and dropping a 6-1 decision in the semi. “You’d always like to make the final, but we’re proud of how we played this weekend and we’re proud of how we’ve played the last couple of weeks,” said the Hustlers Nicole Ansell. “Coming into this, we knew we were at kind of the peak of our season, so we’re happy. We put out our best effort and gave them a good game.” That included the semifinal, which

The Moose Jaw Hustlers gather for a team photo after their appearance in the provincial semifinals.

Ansell felt was far closer than the final score indicated – a sign that with a break or two, her team could have been playing for gold. “I’ll tell you, it didn’t feel like it was five runs between us,” she said. “That game was tight, there were good plays both ways. It’s tough when you score only one run, but it was a good game from the start and we’re happy with it.” The Hustlers defeated the Saskatoon Lunar Eclipse 6-3 and Tisdale Riverdogs 9-7 to go along with a 7-0 loss to the Saskatoon Mystics in the round robin. The Colts went 2-2 in the preliminary round, defeating the Connextion 15-0 and Saskatoon Fury 6-4 to go along with a 6-4 loss to the Ceylon Devils and

8-7 defeat at the hands of the Moosomin Predators. They ended up in the playoffs after the tiebreaker formula was applied and lost a close battle 8-6 to the UK Royals in the quarter-final. “They just had two really good innings,” Wait said of the playoff game game. “Usually we play on this (main) diamond, which is 30 feet shorter than diamond two, so if the ball goes by you, you’re running, and they got a couple through. Unity played well, but it was two good innings that were the difference.” The Moose Jaw Heat didn’t have as much luck as they fell 11-0 to Solar Eclipse, 9-8 to the Sasaktoon Grizzlies and 11-4 to the Royals.

Both Ansell and Wait were especially happy with the support the tournament received from fans and onlookers, with sizable crowds on hand each of the three days. “We had nothing but support all weekend, this community has been great,” Ansell said. “The other teams in the Moose Jaw league were great, too, we cheer for each other. It’s awesome when there’s a big crowd and there cheers when you make a good play, you feel really supported.” “There were lots of people coming in from out of town, even a random guy in his RV,” Wait said of the crowd support. “And there were a lot of people who came through the gates, so we’re happy about that.”

Yara Community Gardens’ Farmer’s Markets



Read mo�e on page 45

2018 is the 11th year for the Yara Community Gardens’ Farmer’s Markets which take place be-tween 8:00 a.m. and noon on Home Street West in Moose Jaw. The first farmer’s market of the season is typically held on the second Saturday in August while the second farmer’s market is generally held in autumn, on or around the second Saturday in September. Yara Community Gardens also hosts an annual Pumpkin Harvest Festival the last Saturday each September between 11 am and 2 pm, featuring bowls of

home-made chili and all sizes of pumpkins which have been grown and harvested from Yara’s very own Ninth Avenue East pumpkin patch. The Pumpkin Harvest Festival is held at the Grey Avenue Garden’s location on Grey Avenue beside the East end baseball diamonds. The purpose of the farmer’s mar-kets and pumpkin harvest festival are to raise awareness as well as funds. Funds raised benefit the Hunger in Moose Jaw Child Nutrition Program which serves over 70,000 meals annually. Additional funds also go to help Riverside Mission, as they serve over 1000 meals each month, and thanks to funds raised at these events, the gardens themselves continue to

offer affordable fees for any family budget. The 2017 Farmer’s Markets featured interactive gardening tours at some of the gardening locations. Each year, the Farmer’s Markets feature pesticide-free produce, preserves, homemade baking, hot coffee, children’s activities, and a 50/50 draw. Call 306.692.1916 or email gar-dens.hungermj@sasktel.net to apply to be a community gardener!Yara Community Gardens’ office is located at (Hunger in Moose Jaw and Head Start Preschool) 269 Stadacona Street West. Of-fice hours are Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (call ahead to confirm).

National / International News TRAVEL

A guide to travel insurance including when not to buy it By Beth J. Harpar - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

When you book flights online, you’re typically prompted to buy travel insurance. Same with cruises and tours. Should you buy the insurance? What will it cover? Equally important, what won’t it cover, and when might it not be worth your while? TRAVEL INSURANCE: WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? Typically travel insurance protects your financial investment in your trip, to ``cover penalties and extra costs you would incur’’ if you couldn’t take your trip or if your trip was interrupted. For example, say you need to cancel a trip or head home early because of a death in the family or because a hurricane is headed to your beach destination. This type of insurance reimburses prepaid expenses _ flights, tours, hotel _ as well as expenses incurred because the trip was interrupted, like rebooking fees for new flights. This type of insurance also covers additional costs incurred if your trip is delayed _ for example, you miss a connection because of a storm and need to stay overnight in a hotel before catching the next flight out. Another type of travel insurance offers health benefits, typically providing ``gap coverage for emergency medical expenses and also medical evacuation.’’ A third category protects ``your stuff,’’ meaning whatever you bring with you or pack that’s not covered by existing insurance, in case of loss, damage

or theft. WHEN WOULDN’T YOU BUY INSURANCE? Buying insurance should be based on potential losses and what you can afford to lose. If you’re staying in a hotel that won’t charge you if you cancel, or you’re taking a trip booked with miles but you can get the miles back with no penalty if you cancel, you don’t need insurance because your losses would be zero. But if you stand to lose your investment should you cancel, can you live with that risk? Or can you live with the possibility that if the trip falls through for some unforeseen reason, you could lose most of what you spent on flights and other non-refundable components? EXCLUSIONS AND TIMING Risk assessment is also a factor. If you’re planning now for a Caribbean trip in September, that’s prime hurricane season. Insurance would mitigate potential financial losses if a storm disrupted or caused the cancellation of your trip. But you cannot get insurance to cover specific problems that already exist. So if your trip starts Friday, and a storm is already headed to your destination, it’s probably too late to buy insurance. Insurance is designed to protect the unforeseen. Buying insurance when you book your trip is the best way to assure your claims will be covered, but many policies can be purchased until the day before

the trip. Typically, exclusions _ things not covered by insurance _ include pre-existing medical conditions (though you might be covered if your medical condition has been stable and there’s an unexpected, new complication) and work-related issues (a last-minute deadline that the boss can’t handle without you). One option that covers every scenario: cancel-forany-reason insurance. That type of insurance only reimburses 75 per cent of your cost rather than the 100 per cent with other types of policies. TERROR ATTACKS What if a terror attack unfolds somewhere and you’re feeling so nervous that you want to stay home? If the attack shuts down the city you’re headed to, you may be covered. But if the attack is in a provincial capital and you’re heading to a different region, you probably can’t make a case for an insurance claim unless you have cancel-for-any-reason insurance. And if insurance doesn’t cover your situation, or you don’t have insurance, it’s always worth contacting the airline, hotel or tour operator. Sometimes travel providers are sympathetic to individual problems or when the public feels skittish following a major event. Even if you can’t get a refund, you might get credit toward a future trip. © 2018 The Canadian Press


Razor toothed and rare mosasaur skeleton displayed in Manitoba MORDEN, Man. _ Suzy, Bruce and now a new prehistoric sea-creature skeleton make three at a southwestern Manitoba museum. The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre in Morden unveiled its latest mosasaur skeleton on Wednesday. The museum is already home to Bruce _ the Guinness World Records holder as the largest publicly displayed mosasaur _ and his museum companion Suzy. Mosasaurs were huge, strange-looking marine reptiles that lived throughout the world during the late Cretaceous period between 66 and 100 million years ago. They went extinct around ELECTRIC LOG SPLITTER







the same time as the dinosaurs. Mosasaurs were predators at the top of the food chain. They were powerful swimmers with long, broad tails. They also had a double-hinged jaw, similar to a snake, and ate everything from birds and mollusks to fish. Discovery centre curator and paleontologist Victoria Markstrom said the new specimen is different than most of its fossil friends. It’s a Kourisodon puntledgensis mosasaur which is quite rare. It has razor-like teeth for shearing its food rather than crocodile-style teeth for chomping like the other specimens. ``Because (the teeth) are laterally








compressed, because they have this shape, some scientists think that they would use it for biting down on softer animals,’’ Markstrom said. ``These (mosasaurs) might have been eating more things like soft fish, jellyfish, squid and whatnot.’’ It’s also much smaller _ only 3.7 metres compared to 13-metre-long Bruce. Markstrom said that’s because the new creature was found on Vancouver Island. Bruce and Suzy were unearthed in Manitoba. They would have roamed the Western Interior Seaway, which stretched from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, cutting North Ameri-








ca in half. ``It shows that whatever was going on in the Pacific Ocean, they had some pretty small mosasaurs living there,’’ said Markstrom, who added that fossils of the species have otherwise only been found in Japan. ``We don’t usually get a lot of information about the animals that lived in the ancient Pacific Ocean because they are not usually found.’’ The new skeleton does not have a name yet. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Caffeine shot: Coke bets “Coke Plus Coffee� boosts soda ATLANTA _ Coca-Cola thinks it may have found a new drink that will give soda sales a shot of caffeine: Coke Plus Coffee. The company introduced the canned and bottled product in Australia last year, and has since rolled it out to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. It did not say where it would next introduce the drink. The version introduced in Australia has more caffeine than a regular Coke, but less than a cup of coffee, according to the company. Coca-Cola is trying to find ways to keep people in-

terested in its namesake brand, even as it works to adapt its lineup of drinks to reflect changing tastes. The efforts come as the world’s largest soda maker faces growing concerns about sugar consumption, with the United Kingdom, Mexico, South Africa and several U.S. cities implementing special taxes on sugary drinks. Such health concerns have prompted Coke to work on reformulating certain drinks to have less sugar or marketing existing diet drinks more aggressively. In the second quarter, for instance, the company

said that strong growth for Coca-Cola Zero Sugar in North America helped lift its sparkling soft drinks volume by 1 per cent. The higher sales come after the company changed the name to make clearer the drink doesn’t contain any sugar. Total revenue for the quarter slipped to $8.93 billion as the company refranchised bottling operations, but still beat forecasts for $8.54 billion. Coca-Cola shares rose 2 per cent to $46.29 in Wednesday trading. Š 2018 The Canadian Press


Angry customer? Tips to cement, not hurt, a relationship NEW YORK _ When a customer calls or comes into a business to complain, an owner can use the conversation to cement rather than lose a relationship. Nancy Friedman, who runs The Telephone Doctor, a customer service consulting firm, has some tips on how to talk to someone who’s unhappy with a company’s service or product: _Listen for the customer’s name, and make sure you repeat it during the conversation. _After customers explain why they’re calling, say, ``My apologies,’’ which is stronger and sounds more sincere than ``I’m sorry.’’ Tell the customer your name and get the customer’s phone number in case the call drops. Also say, ``I’m glad to meet you, even if it’s by phone.’’ _No one answering the phone should say, ``I can’t help you.’’ If the owner or employee can’t assist the customer, the response is, ``I am going to find someone

who will help you.’’ _Take notes while the customer is speaking. Being able to repeat what they’ve said shows you’re serious about listening and helping. _If the problem isn’t something that’s easily fixed _ for example, replacing a defective product or issuing a refund for it _ ask the customer to help you come up with a solution that will satisfy them. _If the customer is angry, don’t say, ``I know how you feel,’’ or ``Calm down.’’ Try, ``I can imagine how upset you are _ I would be too.’’ If the customer is yelling and/or swearing, a good response is, ``Mr. Smith, I can handle your problem. I’m not able to handle your screaming at me. Let’s find a way to work this out.’’ Š 2018 The Canadian Press


Honolulu hotel undergoes redesign to attract millennials HONOLULU _ A Honolulu boutique hotel completed a $4 million redesign that aims to attract millennials by giving them backdrops for selfies. The 135-room Shoreline Hotel Waikiki revealed last week its new ``neon meets nature’’ theme, which features at least eight photo backdrops worthy of social media posts, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. ``We wanted this hotel to be one of the most Instagramable hotels,’’ said Gen-

eral Manager Alvida Surpia-Jones. ``Millennials already make up more than 50 per cent of our customer base and with these changes, we think that percentage will grow even more.’’ The hotel has several vibrant spaces and colorful art fixtures, like the neon aloha sign behind the front desk and the wall of colorful Panama hats in the lobby. There’s also a vivid nature mural on the rooftop pool deck, which has water illuminated nightly with various

primary colours. ``We wanted to bring the neon colours that are found in the nature of Hawaii inside so that guests can continue their vibrant Hawaii vacations not only at the beach and shore, but at the Shoreline,’’ said Stephanie Metzger, of New York-based BHDM Design. Seaside Waikiki Hotel Fund LLC purchased the property from United Airlines in 2012, leading to an extensive renovation and reopening in 2013.

Hotel management company Filament Hospitality has operated the property since late 2015. ``Millennials don’t register a memory anymore unless they take a picture,’’ Metzger said. ``If they don’t share it, it’s like it never happened. We are going after a young market that wants to show that they had an epic stay.’’ Š 2018 The Canadian Press

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Free Speech As I put words to paper, I know God uses this column to speak through me to you. I am confident of this because of readers who mention how they were encouraged or inspired by “On the Front Porch.” It is not because of anything special I have done... it is only because I followed God’s leading by faith to pursue a passion of mine since childhood. I’ve always loved words. In fact, my strongest love language is “words of affirmation.” When someone says, “Oh, I loved last week’s column,” I have to ask what it was about because after I send my column to the paper, I hardly remember what I wrote. I truly believe God downloads His words through me; I’m just the conduit of what God wants to speak to you! Also, a big-shout out to this valuable community paper that promotes free speech! Support this local business that is a true representation of what we value in this great province and nation. I see a paper full of life... bright colors, inspiring columns, clean content, community celebrations, positive news, willingness to present religious content in a culture that is struggling with absolutes and also a platform for information that relates to our southern Saskatchewan agricultural community that we must preserve and protect. I am honored to have this platform to come each week to encourage and challenge you, dear readers, and do not take for granted the opportunity that has been granted to me! I pray these opportunities will continue in Saskatchewan and Canada! Long live free speech! In prayer this morning, I felt such a deep longing to minister courage and encouragement to each of you! I sense discouragement, loneliness and even depression that many of you may be battling today. I want to release love to you today from the Father’s Heart! There is nothing in this whole world that can take the place of God’s love. It is lasting. It is real. It permeates to the deepest, darkest recesses of the soul. He is in the details of your life. He is interested in everything that concerns you! In fact, He promises to perfect everything that concerns you! (Psalms 138:8) As I’ve written many times, it matters whether or not we will receive what He has promised! Open up your hearts to this word for you today! The Greek word for “love” is agape. This indicates God’s unfailing love. He loves you just the same today as He did yesterday and will in the future. His love is unconditional... never changes and is ever-faithful. In the book of Psalms, there are over 70 references to His unfailing love. Rick Renner, a Greek scholar, calls “agape” love “high-level love.” “There is no higher, finer or more excellent love than agape love. ...Agape love is a love that loves so profoundly that it knows no limits or boundaries in how far, wide, high and deep it will go to show that love to its recipient. If necessary, agape love will even sacrifice itself for the sake of that object or person it so deeply cherishes. Agape is the highest form of love – a self-sacrificial love that moves the lover to action for the sake of the beloved.” In your times of loneliness andEast discouragement, open up 60 Athabasca Street to that unfailing love of God. Ask Him, “Show me Your 306-692-0533 Minister: Rev. Jim is Tenford love, God.” All He wants for us to move toward Him. Music Director: Karen Make your move... then He’llPurdy move; just like the game th of chess. Sunday, May 14 , 2017 Today, I am thankful for10:30am free speech and His unfailing Worship Service & Sunday School love. Amen.

THORA ELIZABETH BROWNE (Nee Finlay) Erma MacKinnon Erma passed away peacefully at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital, Moose Jaw on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 with family by her side. Cherished wife of Roddie “Rod” for over 40 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her sisters Debbie Gallein, Sheila “Paulette” Gallant, sisters-in-law Janet Blake, Joanne Prestedge, Alison Seymour and by her brother-in-law Blair MacKinnon, as well as by her nieces, nephews and friends all across Canada. Erma was born to Sylvere and Clara Gallant in Summerside, PEI on September 8, 1942. She grew up in Summerside attending school and working at the local Met Store. She met Roddie in 1977 while he was in Summerside on his Junior Leadership Training Course for the Canadian Forces. The two were wed on April 29, 1978 at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Summerside. Over the years, they lived in many places across Canada, including Dartmouth, NS, Kingston, ON, Portage la Prairie, MB, Comox, BC, finally settling in Moose Jaw in 1989 followed by a couple of brief moves and returns to Moose Jaw. While in Moose Jaw, Erma worked at the local Metropolitan store on Main St. She enjoyed old movies, and her favourite soaps “Days of Our Lives” and “Coronation Street”, but her main interest was getting together with her friends at the Bingo Halls where she quickly became a fixture. All are invited to attend a Celebration of Erma’s Life in the lounge at Parkview Funeral Chapel, 474 Hochelaga St W, Moose Jaw, on Thursday, August 2, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Kidney Foundation or to the Diabetes Association would be appreciated. Blair Scott, Funeral Director 306-694-5500 Please see our online book of condolences at www.parkviewfuneralchapel.ca

It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Thora Browne of Moose Jaw, formerly of Chamberlain on July 25, 2018, four months and 16 days short of her 100th birthday. Thora will be sadly missed by her son Carmen (Lynne) Browne of Strathmore, AB; son in law Walter Hjelte of Moose Jaw; grandchildren Monty, Jamie, Jennifer, Jill, and Logan; eight great grandchildren. Predeceased by her daughter Margaret; husband Robert and four brothers Earl, Norman, Walter and Harold. In keeping with Thora’s wishes a private family service will be held at a later date.

“I made up my mind not to care so much about the destination, and simply enjoy the journey.” - David Archuleta,’Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song and the Power of Perseverance’ Summer is the best of times to take a few days or do a day-trip to some of the local communiJoan Ritchie ties within the province. EDITOR After living in a few different locations throughout our married life, the he and me have always held to the belief that we should explore our current location and its surroundings while we are in the proximity. Living in Moose Jaw for the last eight years, we have often taken a day to check out neighbouring towns and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. To tell you the truth, even a change of scenery for a day is very refreshing. With time, things change; people move on, so, one never knows when they will cross that path again. Carpe Diem should be the motto to live by, so we try. You never know what you will find. I particularly like wandering down main streets to check out the local stores; it’s exhilarating to find a treasure that you probably didn’t need but were thrilled to get your hands on. I think of many discoveries: Gravelbourg has a great ‘everything’ store that you can muse through for hours. Many towns have 2nd hand stores full of ‘new to you’ treasures; oftentimes expensive collectibles sold for about a ‘dime-on-the dollar’. Swift Current has a great Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings in the summer. It goes for blocks and is just what the doctor ordered for a day of relaxation. Their local Co-op store is a one-stop shop for whatever you may be looking for. Have you ever been to Avonlea? The golf course there is a hidden gem in a forested valley in the middle of the bald prairie; who would’ve thunk? Almost every town has a story to tell; many Saskatchewan towns have since gone ghostly; dilapidated and in ruins. Drive through Tugaske and remember what it once was; just like Dog River (Rouleaux). Backroads are speckled with old farm schools, the odd elevator and overgrown homesteads. In retrospect, I also consider how remarkable visitors to Moose Jaw must feel when they experience the friendly city. A one-day visit doesn’t do it justice. History lives here; the arts abound; around-the-world cuisine available at hand’s reach; numerous relaxation spas to choose from; watering holes for social gatherings; great shopping for the ladies; beautiful parks to picnic in and wander through and friendly people to chit-chat with. What more could you ask for? Whether you are a homegrown stubble-jumper or not, Saskatchewan is the place to be in the dog-days of summer!

She was employed at various businesses such as Prentice Jewelers, the Grant Hall, Super 8, and St. Anthony's Home. Shirley was active in Kinette's and served as President. She also sang at weddings, funerals, and many other functions.
