The Moose Jaw Humane Society is on the hunt for a new Executive Director to run the facility. This was revealed at the organization’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday, July 26. The Humane Society’s board of directors say following the resignation of their long-time executive director, Kristyn McEwen in February, the organization is looking for someone to oversee the day to day operations of the shelter. “It has been a year of changes for us. There have been some significant changes like: our long time executive director resigned in February. She (Kristyn McEwen) dedicated 10 years to the Humane Society and has done some great work that we are grateful for,” said Tanya Morland, president of the Moose Humane Society Board of

Directors. “We are now on the hunt for a new executive director. That was on hold until we got a look at where we are financially and now we’re moving ahead in finding someone to fill that post. Our new executive director will be pivotal in the process to make some changes and policies we want to implement.” In addition to finding a new director, Morland says the Humane Society is also looking to relocate because the current shelter is deteriorating. “One of the other things we want to focus on going forward is relocating to a new building. That has been something we’ve wanted to do for many years, but we really want to put more focus on that moving forward in our plans. Our current building is worsening, and we need a new


space to house the animals and so our staff can have a better work environment,” she said. “Overall, we’re going to be looking at how we can do things differently that will be in the best interest of the organization on a whole with a strategic goal in mind; looking at also fundraising and other initiatives.” The Humane Society is also welcoming persons who wish to join the board or become members. “We have some new board members that were nominated and voted in at this year’s meeting. We still have open positions so if there’s interest to sit on our board, persons can contact the shelter and they will get in touch with the board of directors. Members also are always welcome.”

Book raising funds by sharing life lessons from an RCMP officer Matthew Gourlie — Moose Jaw Express

During 30 years on the job, RCMP Staff Sgt. Peter Garvey felt he had learned a few valuable lessons about life. Before he died at the age of 54 from incurable brain cancer in 2017, Garvey set out to put the lessons he learned through a career working in diverse communities down on paper so that he could share them with his seven grandchildren. The result is Life Lessons From a Red Serge, a book that was written by his sisters Barb Porter and Linda Garvey. Garvey’s career took him to urban and rural communities in eastern Canada, Nunavut and the prairie provinces. Garvey was raised in Wawota and concluded his career in the RCMP’s F Division in Regina. It was there that he became most heavily involved with one of his passions — working with Search and Rescue Saskatchewan Association of Volunteers (SARSAV). Garvey was heavily involved in training volunteers, as well as conducting searches. All proceeds from the book will go to SARSAV. The Moose Jaw Search and Rescue chapter continues to grow and any funds that help support the work of the volunteers is greatly appreciated. “We get funds from federal only on

(Search and Rescue New Initiative Funds) grants for training or equipment and that’s about it. We get the odd fundraising donation on somebody’s bequest. (Garvey) is one. In previous years, we had another RCMP and it was the same thing when he passed away,� said Fern Paulhus, past president and a member of Moose Jaw Search and Rescue for more than 32 years. Currently, Moose Jaw Search and Rescue has between 30-35 members, but their annual budget is quite modest which means any proceeds that SARSAV earns from sales of Life Lessons From a Red Serge will help local chapters around the province. “For Moose Jaw, we run anywhere from $2,500 to a $5,000-budget per year to operate on equipment and training,� Paulhus said. “We would like to have more, of course. We would like to have a home to put all of our equipment in. We’ve been using vacant properties that they allow us into, but once they rent it out, we’re out on the street again.� SARSAV is comprised of 17 search and rescue chapters across the province, with more than 350 professionally trained search and rescue volunteers. SARSAV chapters province a co-ordinated response of qualified search and rescue

The local search and rescue chapter has experienced some strong growth in recent years. “This year, we have actually had three new ones just sign up. Last fall we had six there, and the year before we had about another six more (new members),� Paulhus said. “So, it is growing with the

younger generation finally looking to plug in and, hopefully, take over someday. Each new search and rescue volunteer receives extensive training and then needs hours of experience to become a team leader. “There is a basic eight-hour course and then it’s an additional 40 hours to become what is called a team leader,� Paulhus said. “If a major search happens and volunteers within the community want to help out in the search, this individual will be able to take these volunteers and go out and do a search. Sometimes you could end up with 60 spontaneous searchers and these individuals have to be trained to take them out.� Paulhus is qualified as a team leader, a senior search manager and a mantracker. The local search and rescue volunteers also receive training to become certified and qualified before they take part in various elements that can come into a search like scuba diving, boats, traffic control, snowmobiles or quads. The book is available in stores in seven Saskatchewan communities but only available in Moose Jaw by purchase online at the RCMP Heritage Centre Gift Store website or through the publishers (mcarverassociates@gmail.com).

Prairie Summer Extravaganza sees wide variety of dairy goat activities Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

After a wildly successful first outing in Moose Jaw last year, the Prairie Summer Extravaganza goat show was back at the Golden Mile Arena the last weekend in July – this year with a focus on the dairy side of things. Around 150 dairy goats of all breeds took part in the show, coming from farms all over western Canada. The event was broken into three parts, with the Canadian Goat Society Western show on July 20, a junior show and buck show Saturday and the CGS double-sanctioned show on Sunday. In between the main events, a wide variety of seminars and demonstrations were held, including milking and hoof trimming demos, as well as a nutrition seminar by the feed company Masterfeeds. Sandy Larocque of Triple C Farms near Sifton, Man. was one of the veteran showers on hand, with more than 35 years in the industry. “It’s been busy, and the quality of the animals has been just super,” she said. “It’s so good to see that many people coming out, we’ve lost a few of the dairy goat shows so when there’s one this big people try to come and make it.” Larocque – who maintains a heard of Lamanchas, one of the 10 breeds covered by the CGS – pointed to the opportunity to meet and greet her fellow breeders as a key part of the show. “The biggest part is the networking of not just your breed but other breeds in general,” she said. “It’s a fast-growing industry so you need to know who else is in the industry, and the networking opportunity is fantastic.” As a show, it all comes down to comparing

Dairy goat breeders show off their Toggenburg goats. the animals and ideally picking up awards, and on that end it’s much like any other animal show event: there are certain attributes for every breed that will make the difference when it comes to success. When it comes to dairy goat stock, the quality of udders is the most important aspect. “Judges when they’re judging dairy will look for certain things and then break them down by breed,” explained Larocque. “The mature ones have to have a well-developed udder, one that has the capacity to hold milk. And things like a well-attached udder, that would place higher than a less well-attached udder. Feet and legs are another thing, they’re not kept in a stall in a barn, they’re out wandering around in the pasture, so they have to have good feet and legs. “And then, after all that, there’s the breed characteristics. Nubians have to have the

long ears, Lamanchas have to have the small ears; you can’t bring a Lamancha into the ring that has big ears... there are a lot of things they look for and the difference can be really small.” Actually winning a show can have benefits, especially when it comes to breeding and selling. Champion breeders can advertise their stock as such, making them more valuable when it comes to husbandry and future animal sales. “That shows that they were judged against animals that you’d never see otherwise,” Lacroque said. “So then if someone is looking for an animal they can look at that ad and say that doe has a perfect udder and I need to improve udders, or it has great feet and legs and I need to improve that. So it can work out pretty well that way.” Then there’s the whole dairy side of things. Larocque pointed to the steady rise of goat milk sales in recent years as a sign that the

Home listings, sales in Moose Jaw down, prices go up By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Buying a home in Moose Jaw isn’t as easy as it used to be. Real estate sales activity released by the Association of Regina and District Realtors shows the number of homes listed in Moose Jaw has declined this year and sales have been reduced. With 561 new listings during the first six months, the number of potential buys declined by 4.1 per cent while 220 sales on MLS in Moose Jaw was down 7.2 per cent. This might reflect how tightening mortgage rules have affected new home buyers except that prices are hanging in quite well.

commodity could be on the verge of large scale growth. For now, though, the industry in western Canada is of a smaller scale, as seen by the number of shows each year. The Extravaganza is the only one in Saskatchewan in 2018 and there are only two taking place in Alberta this year. “We used to have lots, when I started 35 years ago we used to have 12 shows to go to,” Larocque said. “Every industry that you get into, no matter what it is, has highs and lows. The dairy goat industry is no different. We’re at a low now, but you can see it climbing because the demand is there. “Goat milk is the healthiest milk you can drink, and goat meat is eaten by more people all around the world than any other kind of meat, so we’re expecting things will only get better in the future.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Doing nothing during lazy, hazy days of song’s summer

Nat King Cole had it right when he sang about “those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer,” a time of year we wish would stay around just a little bit longer in our part of the world. But already the leaves are falling from some trees, suggesting our Joyce Walter summer will soon be a For Moose Jaw Express memory of a season that started late and may just finish early, depending on the whim of Mother Nature. So, let’s enjoy the days of August that are left to us and maybe even pack a picnic basket with “sandwiches and weenies” as Mr. Cole suggested. There are two international days this month that tie in quite nicely with enjoying the lazy part of the song. On Aug. 10, the day will be devoted to being lazy while Aug. 15 is billed as a day to relax. Certainly, the two could be interchangeable — relaxing on Aug. 10 and being lazy on Aug. 15.

There is no historical reference point for who proclaimed these days, or why, but there are some suggestions provided on how to observe each of the days. Again, there is a similarity of activities. The one I like best is “doing nothing.” Some might find it difficult to celebrate in this way, but hand me a book, a swatter for the flies, wasps and mosquitoes and a nice cool drink just inches away from my chair and I will be a happy camper. What a perfect lazy day, in the backyard, or in the park under a large tree. Another suggestion is going to a spa, but that would be work for me. Getting those compression stockings on and off to partake of the spa services is more work than I care to undertake on days for being lazy or relaxing. A trip to the lake to fish might be OK, as long as someone else is prepared to bait the hook and clean the catch. In the early years when I went fishing with my Dad, I continually got my line tangled in the weeds and was eventually encouraged to go sit with Mom who was enjoying the outing by reading a book and drinking lemonade. It was a good thing she packed a lunch because we would have starved on what we didn’t catch. But there was some relaxation involved.

Golf is listed as another way to relax. What about the stress of missing the green, landing in a sand trap or water hazard, or worse, not being able to find one’s ball? I’ve seen some golfers who definitely aren’t relaxed as they putter from hole to hole in their carts. They are there to win and phooey on having a relaxing game with friends. Another idea is to lounge in a hammock. I tried that once and possibly because of balance problems, had trouble getting in and even more trouble getting out. Thankfully there were no cellphone cameras available back then to record those ungainly moments. Also on the list is attending a movie. Unless it is raining or the movie is at the drive-in, it seems a waste of summer to be cooped up in a dark theatre for two hours while being forced to listen to the murder of respectful language and conversation. That brings me back to the beginning of the list and right now I’m heading off to do absolutely nothing, expect perhaps to figure out how to celebrate Potato Day on Aug. 19.

FCC agriculture outlook for rest of year still strong By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS The outlook for agriculture during the rest of 2018 looks good even with all the uncertainty caused by trade war rhetoric. That is the picture painted by Farm Credit Canada’s mid-year review of the year’s predictions. Canola and wheat still look like good bets; however, peas and lentil markets will fare poorly from Indian import tariffs. Canola prices dropped more than anticipated in the first half of the year but are expected to average $11.30 a bushel for the rest of 2018. Increases in global oilseed production are expected to be matched by demand increases. While U.S. wheat production increased by eight per cent, ending stocks in that country will be at a four-year low as global stocks fall from a normal Russian crop. “As a result, the average 2018-19 price is expected to slowly rise above the 201415 price for the first time. Statistics Canada expects Canadian farmers to have increased the area sown to wheat by 10.4 per cent in 2018, given it might offer a better price and more profitable options than pulse markets,” said FCC. In the livestock industry, cow-calf profitability of the year is expected to continue into 2019, but negative margins in backgrounding and feedlots are not getting any relief.

Prices for fed heifers continue to encourage processing instead of retention for herds with a small decrease for 2018 in the herd size. Canadian beef production will increase slightly, boosted by a decline in live animal exports to the U.S. Feed grain prices shouldn’t increase in the year ahead but yields and weather conditions may affect that sector. A 0.6 per cent decline in beef prices is good for the business as it spurs increased consumption. The FCC report notes beef and pork prices to consumers could face competition as both frozen pork and beef stocks increased by double digit percentages to May 30. The 78-cent loonie in U.S. dollar terms has stabilized farm revenues. The FCC says its outlook in January was close in four of five prediction on benchmarks. The forecast for overnight interest rates was an increase of 50 to 75 basis points. Actual increase was 25 basis points. The five-year interest rate was forecast at a 75 basis points hike. Actual increase was 35 points. The forecast 78-cent dollar exchange rate was right on while the two per cent inflation forecast was low by one-half per cent. The $55 US oil price was way off base, averaging $64.88 US. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Kids and Science mesh for summer fun By Matthew Gourlie for Moose Jaw Express

A small army of robots and some non-Newtonian fluid drew a crowd to Elgin Park Monday afternoon. It wasn’t an invasion out of a superhero movie, rather it was a visit from the Saskatchewan Science Centre’s outreach program. Approximately 50 children gathered to learn about science and take part in some fun experiments. “It’s something you don’t always get a chance to experience,” said J.P. Bélanger, an outreach educator at the Saskatchewan Science Centre in Regina. An Afternoon With the Science Centre — Matter of Fact Show was this year’s local stop by the outreach program and was sponsored by the Moose Jaw Association for Community Living. “During the summer, the Saskatchewan Science Centre does an outreach program that is mostly dedicated to library programming,” Bélanger explained. “We also do a lot of community events like the one we’re doing here in Moose Jaw. The whole purpose of the program is to bring a little piece of the Science Centre to communities that don’t necessarily always get an opportunity to get out to Regina.” Before arriving in Moose Jaw, Bélanger

“We go anywhere we can get to in a vehicle. During the school year, some of those schools don’t get a lot of access to that kind of programming, so we tend to go to a lot of reservation schools and a lot of smaller community schools,” Bélanger said. “This is our busiest summer ever. We have over 100 events booked in two months.” During the school year, the outreach program tends to tailor their programming to align with local school curriculum, but in the summer they’re free to branch out.

This summer they talked to a lot of the libraries that they partner with before planning their program. “We tried to look at activities around superheroes. We do a lot of stuff about the body. We did a little bit about construction. We try to have a variety of different things from demonstrations to hands-on building things, to take-home stuff,” Bélanger said. Monday, the Science Centre team’s demonstrations included an Alka-Seltzer rocket and demonstrating some oobleck that the kids were able to touch afterwards. Oobleck — a combination of corn starch and water — becomes a solid when you work with it in your hands and then turns into a liquid and slips right through your fingers once you stop. It’s a non-Newtonian fluid that doesn’t follow Newton’s law of viscosity and acts like a liquid at rest and a solid if a force is applied. “It’s a huge thing and it’s becoming even more common,” Bélanger said of the oobleck. “There’s a lot really cool things you can do with it. Some different science centres will set up a boom box or a speaker and they’ll wrap it in garbage bag and the

speaker will bounce it up and down. It’s a really cool effect.” The children in attendance also learned about complete circuits and ended the afternoon by making one to operate a small robot — called ‘scribble bots’ — that had markers for legs and “drew” Jackson Pollock-esque pictures that the kids got to keep. The kids in attendance were engaged and some of the keener ones were pretty savvy about how everything worked. “It’s amazing to see the kind of knowledge a lot of random kids will have across the province,” Bélanger said. “That’s really the point of the whole program — to help promote the importance of reading, help get kids out to the libraries and just having a good time.” While the program is often in libraries, Monday’s event let them get a little messier and also drew a number of kids who weren’t there specifically for the outreach program but came over from the splash pad to check out the science presentation. “The outdoor stuff tends to be a little come and go, but it’s always a good time,” Bélanger said.

Moose Jaw’s Partners against violence committee brings together a number of service agencies as well as local RCMP and Moose Jaw Police to work towards building a safer community.

Roots of Empathy in Moose Jaw: What’s on Your Back to School List? As fall approaches and the “Back to School” season begins, backpacks are filled with an array of supplies for the year. Since the fall of 2013, Instructors in our community have also packed bags getting ready to return to school. But instead of paper and pencils, these Instructors pack a large green blanket, colorful picture books, brightly colored baby toys and a sweet-faced baby doll. These are no ordinary Instructors, they are also joined by a newborn baby in the classroom! Since October 2013, twenty eight infants have accompanied Roots of Empathy Instructors to meet with 700 elementary aged children in their classrooms throughout the city of Moose Jaw. Through the Roots of Empathy program elementary aged children across our city have grown in their ability to feel empathy for one another and treat each other with respect. This program is a truly unique approach to the prevention of bullying because it is delivered in partnership with a baby and their parent(s) who visit the classroom every month for one school year. Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based program that has shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression and violence among school children while raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. As the children follow the

development of “their” baby, they develop new awareness and skills to last a lifetime including: Emotional Literacy, Neuroscience, Temperament, Inclusion, Infant Safety & Development, Perspective Taking, Attachment / Attunement, Participatory Democracy and Violence Prevention. Roots of Empathy is offered in every province in Canada as well as on three continents around the world. It came to Saskatchewan in 2011 and Moose Jaw was the first city in Southern SK to adopt the program through

strong local partnerships including the Partners Against Violence committee, both school divisions, Hillcrest Church and many others. Since opening in Moose Jaw, 27 programs have been delivered locally in 11 different schools, with over 700 students benefiting from the program. Both the Holy Trinity Catholic School and Prairie South School Divisions have participated in hosting the program as well as training Instructors to deliver Roots of Empathy. In the spring of 2017, the pertussis (whooping cough) outbreak in Moose Jaw prevented our programs from returning to school because of risks to our infant “teachers.” Once the outbreak clears we hope to resume programs as usual and continue to change to the world, child by child. We are currently recruiting families with babies who were born in June, July or August 2018 to partner with us in the classroom this fall and impact the children of Moose Jaw!

Brain Boogie: Annual walk-a-thon to bring together community for those impacted by brain injuries Sasha-Gay Lobban

Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association’s Brain Boogie walk-a-thon and fun run for those impacted by brain injury will be held on Sunday, August 26 at the Crescent Park Amphitheatre. Brain Boogie is held in five cities around the province; Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, Regina, Yorkton and Prince Albert. This year, Moose Jaw’s event will be held at the park, starting at 10:00 a.m. with a warm up session by the Yoga Loft. This event is highly anticipated all year by SBIA’s enthusiastic members. Brain injury survivors and their families strongly support the Brain Boogie. “Pledges, donations, and an undeniable positive energy are all aspects that survivors and their families bring to the Brain Boogie,” said Glenda James, Executive Director of SBIA. “This group is a safe place where we are comfortable sharing our struggles and our successes. The group seems to “get it” when we share personal stories,” said one survivor about the programs funded by the Brain Boogie. The Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association works diligently to raise awareness, as well as educate and prevent acquired brain injuries. Brain injury is the number one killer and disabler of children and those under the age of 44,

according to SBIA. The Association aims to change these statistics with awareness through events like their Brain Boogie. James says Brain Boogie raises funds to provide support for brain injury survivors beyond rehab. “The Brain Boogie was started by a brain injury survivor about 16 years ago. She felt there weren’t any programs available for brain injury survivors to break the isolation following that injury. This is really a problem that brain injury survivors face after the fact where they are often isolated. With Brain Boogie, they wanted to change that by having programs that would help persons feel like they were progressing. Rehab is a general program with a maximum of three years for brain injury victims but after rehab, persons are kind of left on their own,” she explained. “While some people can go back to work or school and have some sort of accommodation, for some others, that’s not the case. For example, one of the common problems for brain injury survivors is fatigue because the brain has to work so hard after an injury. So, Brain Boogie was established to facilitate programs to help persons manage their injury. It was started in Regina and has since moved on to five other major cities,” James added.

James outlined some of the programming that funding from this event supports. “One of the programs that Brain Boogie supports is annual retreats held across the province. We host three retreats. For many persons, these retreats are the only chance they get to get away and be part of something that doesn’t make them feel isolated and know that they have support. This programming breaks the isolation, and this is what we raise funding to do—to give survivors an opportunity that they wouldn’t

have had otherwise. We also offer a lot of information/motivational sessions and a banquet after our retreats. We also don’t charge for our programs so financing is not a barrier to persons accessing our programs,” she said. She encourages everyone to come out and show their support by participating in this year’s Brain Boogie. “We want to see teams come out this year to join us and support this important event,” James said. “There will also be a free BBQ that comes with registration and a big surprise that we will be unveiling this year!” The Brain Boogie is a morning event that consists of a walk-a-thon or run, and family fun Boogie celebration.

A day “adventure” in the hills of Saskatchewan’s great South Country The weekend was coming and plans were made for a day outing. My partner and I had been interested in the Campagne Farm Fest, a folk music festival on a farm near Willow Bunch. Saskatchewan’s Connie by Ron Walter Kaldor of Wood River fame was a big draw, as were the 11 other musicians listed on the website. Neither of us could find a schedule of events. The spot on the website for the schedule was empty. An email, two days before the event, was never answered. My partner was hesitant to go without a schedule. We were driving down on the Saturday, planning to leave in time to get home before dark. We don’t like driving in the dark on unfamiliar roads. With all those groups, I told my partner, there just had to be an afternoon of music. “Let’s look at it as an adventure like we used to do.” Besides we like supporting rural festivals. She agreed. We arrived a little after noon when things were supposed to start.

Yours Truly paid our admission fee and we found a spot to park. I glanced at the printed program we got when paying. Two acts were scheduled for the afternoon. Darn! We decided to make the best of it listening to the sound checks, walking over to the market where CDs, pottery, jewelry and a herbal condiment called ghee were on sale. We ran into a friend from Moose Jaw who cautioned us at least half the music would be French. We had expected that. My partner and I agreed to stay until the two entertainers at 2:20 and 3 p.m. were done. The Campagne farm, located on a high hill, overlooks Montague Lake, near the St. Victor Petroglyphs. The view of the lake and the coulee towards it are gorgeous. Yours Truly walked partly down the freshly mowed walkway to the coulee making good use of my camera. Clusters of tents and single tents had popped up all over the sprawling farm site. Rec vehicles squeezed in between grain bins and old buildings. A few folks walked around. Most, it seemed, were having a mid-day siesta in the heat. It is a great way for a camper to spend time relaxing on a real farm and experience the fresh air, songbirds,

SaskTel undergoes major business shift with fewer employees, little revenue increase By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

The province’s Crown-owned telecommunications company — SaskTel — has shifted business sources sharply with technological change over the last 10 years. In 2009, three quarters of SaskTel revenues came from wireless services, Max cable TV/internet, and local services. In the year ended March 31, wireless brought in 41 per cent of revenue, up from 31 per cent 10 years ago. Max cable and internet took in 28 per cent of revenue, up from 19 per cent and local services brought in 15 per cent, down from 25 per cent. During that period long distance went to three per cent of revenues from almost nine per cent. The massive shift in revenues and operations was achieved with little addition to revenues. Revenues were up $102 million. The shift in revenues was done with massive investments in new technology and networks for data transmission. The company is midway through a $1.6 billion capital investment program from 2016 to 2021 SaskTel annual reports show employee numbers dropped 24 per cent to 3,880 from 4,814 during the 10 years. Revenue for the year just ended was $1,264.6 million — just about nine per cent more than the 2009 level of $1,152.8 million

Long distance revenue continued the slide by almost 12 per cent with wireless down 2.7 per cent and local services dropped 17 per cent. Max cable and internet were up 3.5 per cent. For the year ended in March, the crown earned $227.9 million net profit, up from $188.3 million the year before. Revenues increased 1.4 per cent with a higher dividend, $89.9 million versus $30 million the previous year, paid to the Saskatchewan Government. Net debt was $923.7 million, a reduction from $954 million the previous year. During the last year SaskTel launched a home security and automation service that allows 24/7 monitoring and remote access/control of the property. A one phone number service for wireless and local business numbers was introduced. New services manage Wifi for local business, manage security for small and medium business and operate Cloud data storage. Upgrades to LTE wireless services continued in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Prince Albert, Swift Current and Yorkton. LTE was upgraded in 35 rural and resort communities.

the night time howling of coyotes and musical fun. Good for this family to share their place with others. We waited in the air conditioning of our vehicle. Just before 2 p.m. a dark cloud formed to the northwest. We were informed these clouds always go around the farm, not leaving a drop of rain. Time got to 2:30. No entertainer yet and no announcement. At three there was still no sign of any. We left. In our work backgrounds deadlines were sacrosanct. You missed them at your own peril, something we still cling to. On the way back, Yours Truly offered to buy us an ice cream at that neat retro diner, CruzIn at Assiniboia. My partner laughed. “You have no money. You spent it all on a music fest with no music.” She did buy us an early supper at CruzIn. Neither of us is knocking the festival. We’re sure everybody else there had a great time. We learned a lesson. If an event organizer can’t be bothered in advance to provide a schedule, we will not bother to attend. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Japanese students enjoy time in Friendly City

Arron Dobrescu loved his summers growing up in Moose Jaw. He moved to Yokohama, Japan 15 years ago and opened an English school 13 years ago, but every year he brings some of his students back to his hometown during the summer to experience the Friendly City. “The chance to come over to Canada and to a small town like Moose Jaw is a wonderful opportunity for the kids,” Dobrescu said. “There really aren’t any Japanese-speaking people around here, so they have to think in English the whole time. It’s a peaceful town. I couldn’t believe driving in last night that there were only five cars on Main Street. Moose Jaw is quiet and it’s a good town for the kids. “I get to share a lot of my childhood. I get to take them to places that I really loved going to when I was a kid. There’s no better place to take them than Moose Jaw, I think.” This year Dobrescu has 16 students from his Spike and Ai International school who will take part in the week-long homestay program and live with local families. Most of the students are either in Grade 4, 5 or 6. “There’s a high demand to bring the kids,” Dobrescu said, noting that they had 10 kids in previous years and jumped to 16 last year. The number of kids that take part in the exchange is based on the number of host families they are able to secure.

Matthew Gourlie — Moose Jaw Express

Arron Dobrescu, top left, and the 16 Japanese exchange students and the children from their host families went swimming at the Phyllis Dewar Pool Thursday. Matthew Gourlie photograph Yokohama is just south of Tokyo on Tokyo Bay and has four million people. The wide open spaces of Saskatchewan couldn’t be more different than life at home on the densely populated island. “For one thing they just can’t believe how big the cars are and how big everything is,” Dobrescu said. “In Japan, the cars are narrower and smaller. I had to rent a 15-passenger transit bus and they couldn’t believe that they could stand up in this car. “It’s the size of everything: the size of the houses, the size of the bedrooms, the size of the beds. Some are in queen-sized beds. They’re not used to that, they’re used to a futon in their room with their mom and dad.”

Twelve year old Yasuyuki Aihara is taking part in the exchange for the fourth straight year. “(My favourite part) is meeting the host families,” said Aihara who has had the same host family all four years and stays in touch with their sons Carson and Carter, who are close in age, during the rest of the year. Like most kids his age, Aihara said he likes to play video games and hang out with friends back home, but he enjoys the change of pace of life in Moose Jaw. “Saskatchewan is very big and Yokohama is small, but Yokohama has so many people and is a busy town. Here is so nice and not busy,” Aihara said.

Dobrescu said that it’s the host families and the people in Moose Jaw that make the trip so successful. Before they went on their camping trip in a previous year, they were shopping for supplies at Superstore when a lady bought the entire group a bag of lollipops for their trip. “You’re never going to get something like that in a big city like Vancouver or Toronto,” Dobrescu said. The group arrived Wednesday night just in time to enjoy a doozy of a summer thunderstorm on their first night on the prairies. “They couldn’t believe how cool and clean the air is, but then we had that thunder shower and there were a lot of kids shaking from that. It was loud, but it was a good experience,” Dobrescu said. They have trips scheduled to the Queen City Ex, a camping trip to Buffalo Pound on the weekend, a trip to Babich Farms, plus trips to meet with EMS and the Moose Jaw Police Service, a trip to the radio station and a free day to shop and sightsee with their host family. On the final day, there is a sayonara party to say goodbye to the students that also offers a cultural exchange. “The kids have a tea ceremony that they’re going to share with the families and things like that,” Dobrescu said. “It’s a great culture exchange for everyone that’s involved.”

Mother Nature mostly responsible for reduced Saskatchewan budget deficit last year Surprise, surprise. The Saskatchewan Government deficit last year came in less than half the amount planned in the March 2017 budget. The deficit came in at $303 million, a whole $393 million less than the budget had suggested. Oddly, the provincial government didn’t pull out the stops and brag about good stewardship of finances. If you wonder why, be satisfied knowing the reversal in revenues came from matters completely beyond the government’s control. And much of the reduction in expenses was out of the government’s hand, as well. Expenses in the year ended March 31, 2018 were $489 million lower than projected. A government news release indicates the largest contribu-

tor to reduced expense was lower than expected claims on crop insurance and farm safety net programs. The financial statement lumps expenses on debt charges, transportation, agriculture, environment and natural resources and economic development into one figure: $2.5 billion. But that was down $454 million from the planned amount. It is safe to say that Mother Nature saved the Saskatchewan deficit from being twice as large. Mother Nature plays a regular role in how much the Saskatchewan Government has to spend or rakes in in revenues. Still the finances showed significant decrease in one area. Education expense was down $183 million. Community development, infrastructure, was $79 million less than projected.

VACANCIES FOR ELECTION WORKERS The City of Moose Jaw is conducting the Municipal By-Election on Wednesday, October 17, 2018. In addition, there are five (5) Advance Polls set during the weeks prior to By-Election Day. If you are interested in working the By-Election and would like further information, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 306-694-4426 or visit www.moosejaw.ca. Applications are available online and at the City Clerk’s Office, 228 Main St. N. Experience obtained from working past elections is not a requirement, but definitely considered an asset. The deadline for applications is August 27, 2018.

Social services spending was $14 million higher than planned. Health spending increased $40 million over budget to $5.67 billion. On the revenue side the increase in provincial sales tax raked in just over $2 billion more cash. Utilities pulled in $588 million more, due to weather changes. Insurance revenues grew $380 million mostly from distribution of a surplus in the Workers’ Compensation Fund. A $5 a barrel boost in oil prices and higher production brought in an extra $85 million. Potash revenue was up $68 million. A slow economy saw personal income tax revenues fall $327 million while corporate tax revenue fell $154 million. Property tax took in an extra $60 million, mainly from the reassessment value increase. Money from the federal government dropped $54 million more than planned, mostly because of a previous one time transfer of dams and less crop insurance need. Canada Health and Canada Social transfers put $1.63 billion in the province’s till. Some interesting data: • Federal transfers amounted to 17 per cent of revenue. • Taxation made up 48 per cent of revenues • Non-renewable resources, at 10.2 per cent of revenues, were 40 per cent in 2009 with higher oil and potash prices. • Net provincial debt at almost 81 per cent of government revenue was only at 5.2 per cent in 2009. • Debt rose from $3.52 billion in 2009 to $11.2 billion in 2018. • Since 2009, Saskatchewan has run five deficit budgets, three at break even, and two at a surplus. • Investment in government-owned infrastructure was $1.46 billion with $1.47 billion to meet the needs of government service organizations. • Since 2009, investment in infrastructure has been $14.5 billion.

Farmland investors in Saskatchewan paid 39 per cent more than competing farmers By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express



Non-farming investors own less than two per cent of Saskatchewan farmland but have paid premium

prices to acquire that dirt. A study partly done by a University of Regina sociology professor indicates payment of premium prices. In 16 rural municipalities with a concentration of close to 10 per cent investor ownership, “investors paid $882 per acre, 39 per cent more than other arm’s length buyers and 72 per cent more than family-based buyers,” Andre Magnan told the Farming for Profit conference in Moose Jaw. The data used came from the Farmland Security Board which oversees non-farmer land investment and distinguishes between family and non-family transactions. Province-wide data showed investors paid $239 an acre above assessed value or a 50 per cent premium and $94

an acre more than family transactions. The study was unable to determine if investor land purchases pushed up prices, said Magnan, But a look at Farm Credit Canada farmland price surveys correlates with investor activity. Investor share of farmland transactions was about seven per cent in 2011, almost 10 per cent in 2013 and seven per cent in 2013. The FCC survey registered Saskatchewan farmland price increases of 22.9 per cent, 19.7 per cent and 28.5 per cent in those years respectively. In 2104 investors owned 837,000 acres of farmland in Saskatchewan with nearly 10 per cent ownership of land in 16 RMs. Thirteen RMs with high investor concentration are located south of Regina towards Weyburn. Highest concentrations near Moose Jaw are the RMs of Terrell at Avonlea, and Excel at Viceroy.


CORNER Hay, buckeroos and buckerettes, didya’all head to the rodeo? I have not been to the Calgary Stampede in years and it has been even longer since I have been to a smaller rodeo event. There is one thing that always impressed me by Dale “bushy” Bush about these athletic events, that is cowboy names and nicknames. I am not sure, but it seems as though a person must have a cool cowboy name to compete in a rodeo these days. There are some absolutely fantastic cowboy given names on modern birth certificates that are truly western in their inspiration. Strong, rugged and masculine names have always been associated with the western culture and some of these names have been used for decades. Then there are some that seem to be millennial. In the old days, you were given a cowboy nickname because your Christian name was probably a dud and the first source for a nickname was where you were from or at least where you wanted to be from. Texas was/is a great place for cowboys. There have been a plethora of outlaws and inlaws that have the handle of Tex or Texas. At one time in history, there was no less than 4 different Texas Jacks on wanted

Would Cody Ryder?

posters at the same time in Texas, no less. I wonder if they were rated or had a competition to see who was the top Texas Jack and if there was a trophy. Out of the four Texas Jacks only one, “Texas Jack” Vermillion (John Wilson Vermillion) was born in Texas, which opens the door for anyone to call themselves Tex. Heck, I even have a buddy from the flatlands of Canada who has the handle of Tex, but in his case, he has earned that wonderful nickname and is a respected musician and instrument builder. I also heard of a Russian cowboy Buck Meoff who searches the Ural plains for his Moscow…and his Pa’s cow. You could use your hometown as your cowboy nickname and some of those historically western type towns have become common as given names. Towns like Cody and Laramie (both in Wyoming) are now among the most popular cowboy type given names. It is a good thing there are few cowboys from Dildo Newfoundland. Having a name beginning with the letter R is a good start to a great cowboy name. Some of the most famous cowboys (real and imagined) in history have that beginning letter. Roy Rogers was, in my opinion, the greatest cowboy of all time. If I was to give myself a cowboy nickname, I would choose Roy, which is still a very popular cowboy name. Rex, Reno (again a town name), Rory are among the top 5 R names with Ryder being the most popular. Hmmm…I wonder why

Smaller concentrations occur southwest of Saskatoon near Conquest, near Tisdale and around Piapot. Most of the investor farmland is owned by 37 owners with the top three owning 380,000 acres. About 30,000 acres of investors’ farmland was sold between 2012 and 2014. Magnan wants to widen the scope of the study to see how local land prices were impacted and if the communities were impacted. The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board owns 115,000 acres of farmland acquired from a land partnership that was designed to hold land for years to benefit from price increases. That land deal was controversial and saw the province tighten land ownership rules to prohibit pensions plans and some funds from buying farmland. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

anyone would name their boy after the old truck rental company Ryder Rentals? Cowgirl names have been changing, as well, and having western heritage will influence a baby girl’s name. The trend to name baby girls after states and towns continues with names like Arizona, Dallas, Dakota, Cheyenne and Sierra being the most popular western names on birth certificates in North America. Again, it might be a good thing that there are not that many cowgirls or cowboys from oddly named places like Climax Saskatchewan. Having a strong family heritage is not unique to the Cowboy culture. In Canada, we readily name a child after a hockey star with names like Crosby, Howe, Stanley and beleaf it or not, Leif is among the most popular hockey type names in Toronto. Again, it is a good thing there are few hockey players and cowboys from Dildo Newfoundland, too. Call me Liarton!

Appreciating Saskatchewan MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

Saskatchewan Day was celebrated in many ways this past weekend, reflective of the wonderful diversity of our province. The motto on our Saskatchewan emblem From Many Peoples, Strength so fittingly describes the identity of our province. Our population is comprised of many cultures and backgrounds, and the variety of skills and talents within have built a strong and diversified provincial economy. The Saskatchewan flag portrays our geographical diversity; the upper half is green, representing Saskatchewan’s northern forests, while the lower half is gold, symbolizing the southern grain areas. With approximately 651,900 square kilometres, one half the province is covered by forest, one-third by farmland and one-eighth by fresh water. Saskatchewan has a wealth of resources which has enabled us to weather global economic cycles and is the envy of many nations. We export agriculture products, potash, uranium and oil. Saskatchewan is the world’s largest exporter of lentils, dried peas, mustard, flaxseed and canola. We have the largest potash industry in the world and the world’s largest high-grade uranium deposits. Our growing manufacturing sector exports products to all corners of the globe. Three per cent of the Canadian population reside within Saskatchewan, yet our province accounts for 36 per cent of Canada’s primary energy production. Saskatchewan is one of very few places on the globe that produces crude oil, natural gas, coal, uranium, biofuels, geothermal, wind and hydro power. Our economy has developed because Saskatchewan people are innovative people. People came to Saskatchewan and continue to come here because they are prepared to embark on new endeavours. That attitude remains an economic driving force. Saskatchewan Research Council is one of Canada’s leading suppliers of applied research, development and demonstration services, as well as technology commercialization. The Canadian Light Source is Canada’s only synchrotron and one of the most advanced in the world. The University of Saskatchewan has built an international reputation in health sciences, agriculture, and environmental and life sciences. Recreation opportunities and the arts add to the colour and vibrancy of Saskatchewan, as we see in our own Festival of Words, Rhubarb Productions and tourism attractions. We are being noticed. Canadian visitors increased their spending in the province by over ten percent last year. We have seen tremendous growth in the last decade. Our Gross Domestic Product increased by 18.7 per cent. Our population is the second fastest growing province in Canada, growing by 167,000 people to 1.16 million. We have 40 new or replacement schools and 25 major school renovations with 840 more teachers and 173 more student support teach-

ers working in our schools. The Seniors Income Plan benefit has tripled and 15 new long-term care facilities have been opened. We have added nearly 900 more doctors and over 3,700 more nurses. We went from having the longest surgical wait times in Canada to among the shortest. Investments in hospital projects doubled, including our new hospital, the Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon and the Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford. Saskatchewan Day was a good time to reflect on the many positive aspects of our province. Economic growth is encouraging, and the natural beauty is astounding, but it’s the people who truly make this the best place in Canada to live, work and raise our families.

Girls display recycled palletSasha-Gay desks created during GETT camp Lobban Girls ages 12-15 got an opportunity to attend a week-long trades and technology camp at Saskatchewan Polytechnic this month. Girls Exploring Trades and Technology (GETT) camps provide participants with a safe, supportive environment to explore the tools, equipment and skills needed for a trades and technology career. GETT campers are taught a variety of trades and technology skills with the final project being a desk made of recycled pallets. Girls are introduced to women who work in a variety of predominately male occupations who spend time promoting the importance of career awareness through activities with the participants. Each girl gets a chance to use tools and participate in a collaborative way, making creative decisions as they build their personalized recycled pallet desk. “GETT girls are encouraged to be inventive and problem solve. There are many ways to repurpose a recycled pallet. We are excited to see what the girls create,” shares Jessica Baldwin, Women in Trades & Technology (WITT) provincial facili-

tator. “The result is a week of girl-power where campers see themselves in an otherwise overlooked technology and trades occupation.” One of the instructors for the GETT camp, Sherry Froess, taught the carpentry camp. She says this program is important for girls in order to let them know that they too can get involved in the trades. “The girls got to learn how to use some of the different saws, drills and learning what it’s like to reclaim wood which is

always a good thing instead of throwing it in the dump. They’ve been having lots of fun learning how to create different things,” she said. “I think it is important for the girls to learn that it is not just men who can do this type of work and if they want to, they can also go into the trades. The girls also got an opportunity to find out how cement works, learnt about safety and lots more. It was great to see the progress that the girls made throughout the week.”

Students Ashley Adkins and Grace McWilliams said they enjoyed the camp and learned a lot. “It was fun but also hard work. I’d definitely come back here next year,” said Ashley. “I liked how they let us explore and use the tools ourselves. They supervised but they allowed us to use the tools and figure out how they work. They also introduced us to a lot of different things,” added Grace. GETT camp sponsors include SaskPower— presenting sponsor, and CAE— Moose Jaw Campus sponsor. GETT camps are run by Sask. Polytech’s WITT program. WITT was greatly influenced by the women who founded Saskatchewan Tradeswomen in the 1970s, a movement that eventually formed Saskatchewan Women in Trades and Technology. These women were leaders in a national movement to bring likeminded women together to remove barriers in traditionally male occupations. Sask Polytech’s WITT program has evolved over the past 30 years, but the goal remains the same to encourage and assist women interested in trades and technology careers.

Folk music farm festival attraction near Willow Bunch By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

What started as deck-building bee on the Campagne Farm west of Willow Bunch has become an annual farm folk music festival with francophone flavour. Campers, recreational vehicles and day trippers attended the 11th annual farm festival this year on the organic farm situated on one of the highest elevations in the South Country hills. The farmstead, dating back to settlement in 1907, was crowded with visitors for the three days of fun and music. Organized events ranged from tours of the Willow Bunch Museum to wagon rides, sightseeing on the hill by the farm overlooking Montague Lake, and song writing workshops.

New rail transport bill’s potential discussed by farm economist By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Just after Parliament approved a transportation bill, both major Canadian railways announced large investments. Those announcements were no coincidence. They reflected a new provision dealing with capital costs in Bill C-49, says Derek Brewin, a University of Manitoba agriculture economist. Under previous legislation, capital investment by either railway was credited to both, he told the Farming for Profit conference in Moose Jaw. The new act separates the credit to the railway making the investment.

CNR and Canadian Pacific Railway have announced almost $1 billion in investments that include 6,900 hopper grain cars. How Bill C-49 works to control marker power by railways will depend on how the Canada Transport Agency (CTA) uses its new powers, said Brewin. The CTA has greatly expanded powers to collect information from the railways, including some information once collected by the now-defunct Canadian Wheat Board for rail car allocation purposes. “I think you’re going to see this negotiated between shippers and interested parties over the next few years.” Keeping the Maximum Revenue Entitle-

ment (MRE) for grain transport “is a big thing. It is a s big protection from monopoly powers” by the railways. The MRE acts as an incentive to make the grain transport system less expensive. Since the MRE in 2000, the system has had significant changes: 67 per cent reduction in number of elevators, 38 per cent increase in carload turnover, 80 per cent increase of inland terminal capacity, and 67 per cent increase in large car train movements. The inter-switching provision of the new bill allowing some competitors on railway routes could be good or bad. “If rates are too high there will be no effect. If rates are too low it won’t be ef-

fective.” Regulators must be cautious “cherry-picking” of valuable cargoes by competing railways, he said. “Controlling and being worried about the behaviour of the railways is very important” and has been of concern since 1897. His market power model showed railways would get $119 a tonne at $300 world grain prices for just over $1 billion profits At $250 a tonne world price railways would take $80 a tonne for $508 million profits.

Diamondback Moth in 2018 Growing Season Maryna Van Staveren, Summer Student, Moose Jaw Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture

Diamondback Moth EXPRESS is one of the major early season pests of the brassica family. Its damage intensity varies depending on the density of its population and pressure from its natural enemies. It may overwinter in the prairies; however, it mainly migrates into Canada through May to July from the southern or western U.S. Diamondback moth, being a multivoltine species, produces as many as four generations per year. Early arrival of these pests results in a higher number of generations and therefore a higher risk of economic damage. Adult pests do not cause economic damage to the crop but they lay eggs on the leaves of canola. The larvae then hatch within five or six days and begin to feed on the leaves and later on flower buds and pods, causing significant damage to the future yield. The adult moth is small, approximately 10-12 mm in length and greyish-brown with a 12 mm wingspan covered in long hairs. The moth’s defining physical characteristic can be observed when it is at rest, for as it holds its wings together, a pattern of three yellow diamond-shaped spots can be seen along the top of the moth’s body. Its larvae are yellow-green in colour, covered with short hairs and are five to 12 mm long. Upon physical contact, the caterpillars tend to descend off of the plants and dangle from a silken thread. The caterpillar’s defining characteristics are its tapered ends and forked posterior. The larva pupae is initially light green however upon maturity


Diamondback Moth a brown adult moth becomes visible through a delicate white cocoon. This stage usually lasts five to 15 days, with warmer conditions aiding in faster maturity. The worst damage occurs in the second and third generations, during mid-July to early-August, where the older larvae feeds on canola flowers, pods and stems. Larvae feeds on the internal leaf tissue and upon maturity move onto the outside of the leaf, leaving tan-coloured blotches on the plant. Feeding tends to last for 10 to 30 days, depending on outdoor temperatures. Feeding during the early flowering stage will delay plant maturity and cause uneven development of the crop canopy. Larvae will typically prefer to feed on the flower bud prior to feeding on the pods. Damaged pods may be subjected to premature shattering. Scouting for diamondback moth should be done weekly from mid-July to early August. When scouting the field, monitor at least five one-square-metre sections of

the crop. Early damage can be observed in the ridges and knolls of the field in a form of abnormal whitening. Vigorously shake the crop canopy or pull plants in each of the chosen sections and count the larvae on the plants and the ground, as well as under the leaves and in the plant debris. It is important to keep in mind that the environmental conditions will determine the amount of eggs laid and the chance of larvae’s survival. Heavy rainfall washes young larvae off the leaves to the ground with a chance of drowning the pest all together; cold and windy temperatures slow the eggs’ maturity and reduces the adults’ activity. Ongoing humid conditions may cause the outbreak of Entomophthorales, a fungal disease that occurs in the later growing season during high diamondback moth populations, limiting the development of larvae into adults. The economic threshold for diamondback moth varies upon the stage of the crop; with it being 25 to 30 per cent leaf damage at the seedling stage, 100 to 150 larvae per square meter during the flowering stage and 200 to 300 larvae per square metre at the pod stage. There are currently three parasitoid species of parasitic wasps that aggressively prey upon diamondback moth. Cresson ( Diadegma insulare), Muesebeck (Microplitis plutellae) which prey upon the larvae, and Gravenhorst ( Diadromus subtilicorinis); which feeds upon the prepupal and pupal stages. Other natural enemies include flies, lacewings, pirate bugs, beetles, spiders and birds. Timing of foliar application is key in successfully reducing the pest’s population. Insecticide application targeting the larvae should be applied once the economic threshold is exceeded. Once an infestation is successfully controlled at the podding stage, a new infestation is unlikely to occur due to the later stage of the crop. Controlling volunteer canola and other weeds of the brassica family will rid of additional hosts for the diamondback moth adults to continue their life cycle. Keeping updated with provincial agricultural websites for ongoing forecasting of the pest activity will aid in determining the early numbers in the population.

Storytime for Little Ones Hits a High Note by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

Gary Barwin delights a room filled with children with his whimsical story ‘The Racing Worm Brothers’.

The Art Gallery and Museum Theatre was filled with young people happily waiting to hear the famous story-teller. They had come on a field trip from the Explore and Learn Program at the YM/YWCA, College Daycare, and Northeast Daycare, along with other interested and energetic children from the community. Tina Dolcetti, of the Moose Jaw Public Library, introduced Gary Barwin to the audience. As he adjusted his headset, his first words were “When I wear this microphone I feel like a pilot flying”, and we were off into the world of stories. “When we tell stories, where do they come from? Sometimes stories are what really happened, sometimes they are made-up, and sometimes they come from somewhere in between, like ‘I sat down for breakfast this morning and began to eat my cereal, when I noticed there was an elephant sitting across from me...’ he began. The young people joined in with ideas, and an adventure took shape.

One story he read had been written for his two sons, Ryan and Aaron, who liked to play with worms. In the story, the pet worms, also two brothers, began a race. A few days later, the worms disappeared, and the boys spent the summer looking for them. The boys imagined a worm-life, and what they might be doing with all the neighbourhood creatures who came out at night. The boys spent the summer listening for the worms, just like birds do. They stomped on the ground, again like birds do, hoping the worms would resurface but their pets remained hidden. They drew maps of the neighbourhood and spoke to all their neighbours. The first day of school, in September, it was raining, and on the way to school, Ryan and Aaron found their worms. In true humble worm fashion, neither worm brother would reveal which one had won the race. A story about the value of knowledge, humour and family. A good lesson for two competitive human brothers.

Monia Mazigh Reveals the Heart in Advocacy Writing by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

Monia Mazigh had never planned to become an author. She had a good career resulting from acquiring a PhD in Financial Economics at McGill University. She was happily married and raising her family. Then life took a tragic turn. She told her story on the first day of the Festival of Words and shared her hard-won advocacy experience. Many Canadians followed what happened to her husband Mahar Arar. Arar was a telecommunications engineer, who held dual Syrian and Canadian citizenship. He had lived in Canada since 1987. In September of 2002, he was detained at John F. Kennedy airport while returning home from a family vacation in Tunisia. He was then, inexplicably, deported by the US to Syria, in what became known as ‘extraordinary rendition’. Once in Syria, he was imprisoned and tortured for two years, until his release to Canada in 2004, after months of appeals by Monia Mazigh and a variety of Canadian and international human rights groups. Arar was cleared by a Canadian Commission of any action that could be connected to terrorism, and this case of mistaken identity reverberated throughout government agencies. In 2007, the RCMP were charged with misleading the

public as well as the US authorities and offered a formal apology. Prime Minister Stephen Harper also apologized on behalf of the Canadian government. Arar, thanks to the persistence of his wife in mobilizing other advocacy groups, went on to be a Time magazine Newsmaker of the Year for 2004, and received the Council of Canadians Human Rights Award in 2005. Monia Mazigh, too, had discovered her voice. She has written a memoir and

Her advice on advocacy: “Start with the personal. Make sure all your facts are accurate. Share your emotion and use whatever format you are good at (poetry, songs, journalism, prose). Stick to the truth, but do not be afraid to ask for the impossible.”

many op-ed opinion pieces. “The government has the luxury to wait years before responding, while the advocates for justice have lives - children, partners, jobs, responsibilities. I remember one government employee saying of me that I had a lawyer but I did not have deep pockets. They were prepared to wait me out until I had no money left. And that is exactly what happened.” Now she has written her first novel, Hope Has Two Daughters, about Muslim wom-

Poet Tom Wayman Introduces Writers to The Importance of the Local by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

Tom Wayman, a poet from Vernon, BC, is an author that is often invited to the Festival of Words as an audience favourite. He was part of the opening day of this summer’s festival, providing a three-hour workshop for other writers on the topic of ‘Place-Based Writing’. Wayman never disappoints. He began with a selection of prose, poetry, and songs that use place as a significant marker - like the James Taylor song ‘Copperline’. Wayman notes “There always has to be a story, but Einstein showed us how space and time are linked. We remember our childhoods, and we carry threads of memory all throughout our lives.” Wayman then gave a definition of ‘plot’ as “a response to a social disorder” and encouraged the session attendees to work with it. “We all want to live where there are things that we can count on, both in family and in society. Great literature attempts to understand disorder.” The workshop then allowed time for writing. “Imagine you are producing a film. You are the set designer, and

everything you choose tells the time period, the mood, and might even show where the conflict is. Understand the microsense of the space, and constantly check in with yourself as to how you are feeling about the space you are creating.” Workshop attendees then tried their hand at producing a setting, in words, that conveyed narrative information. Then they added in some emotional information, whether the emotional state of the character or the mood of the piece. “You could even identify something as seen by each of two characters experiencing different (or opposing) emotional states. Describe a chance encounter - perhaps on a street in Moose Jaw.” The final steps were to craft a character who represented the local. “What does this character most desire? What motivates their actions? What are the obstacles they face? Wrap that in a location that drives the social disorder of the narrative.” Now to go home and write that novel.

Tom Wayman, a BC author and poet, shared the ‘Importance of the Local’.

Family Matters for Author David Chariandy by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

Author David Chariandy was born in Toronto, of Trinidadian descent. His three literary works are all centered around family. He is a gentle, quiet, approachable man, and a delight to listen to. His first novel, Soucouyant, was nominated for 11 literary prizes and awards, including the Governor General’s Award, and the Giller Prize. It was a hugely auspicious start to his literary career. His second novel, Brother, won the Rogers’ Writer’s Trust Prize. Chariandy read from it at sessions during the Festival of Words. He speaks of his relationship with his brother Francis, and time they spent together when their parents were working long hours. He relates poignant details about the long bus rides their mother took to get to and from her various jobs as a cleaner. There would be two transfers required and her body would often be close to collapse before she arrived home. The boys gave her concentrated orange juice one day and may have

saved her life. He also read from I’ve been Meaning to Tell You: a Letter to my Daughter. Concerned about the divisive politics coming from our neighbour to the south, Chariandy wrote to his 13-year-old daughter about the politics of race and belonging. He tells his daughter how her grandparents worked to assimilate in Toronto, and how the author spoke displaying the Trinidadian speech patterns of his parents. He was sent to a speech pathologist at school to “learn to speak properly”. He felt confused, and “worked hard to speak English in a way that was indistinguishable from other Canadians”. Once he said to his father, “Your granddaughter, she speaks like you”. His father said not to worry “she will grow out of it”. Just one snapshot in the life of an immigrant who is grateful for his Canadian home, in spite of the judgments others make about him based on his race.

From Truth to Mystery Thriller - Meet Iain Reid by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

Author Iain Reid weaves spellbinding stories.

You know that you have discovered something important when you leave a one-hour session with an author and you immediately rush out to acquire all of his books. That is what happened when I heard author Iain Reid at the Festival of Words. Reid is a well-known and skilled writer of non-fiction. His book ‘One Bird’s Choice’ is subtitled ‘a Year in the Life of an Overeducated, Underemployed Twenty-Something Who Moves Back Home.’ Yes, many of us can relate, but as Canada Reads says “Reid is a gifted storyteller. His family stories are funny and honest, but the real stars of the show are his parents - quirky, lovable characters that one grows to love.” In his next book, ‘The Truth About Luck’, the author accompanies his 92yea- old grandmother on a five-day va-

cation, which turns out to be a ‘staycation’ at his apartment in Kingston. As he escorts her to local attractions and restaurants, the two exchange memories and she begins to reveal details of her inspiring life story. Reid was on a successful path of writing memoirs. Then he was bitten by the thriller bug. His next book, ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things’, is eerie and spooky. Those who have read it already say it is not for consumption if you are at home alone at night. Most of the action takes place in and out of a car, over a few hours, as a young man and his new girlfriend travel to meet his parents. Nothing is what it seems, and you are quickly drawn into the suspense. One reviewer says, “The momentum is unstoppable...it is engaging, bizarre and twisted...a road trip to the heart of creepiness.”

The book is about identity and explores the perversity of loneliness. Jake, the lead character, says that “memory is fiction...Fictions and memories are recalled and retold. They are both forms of stories. Stories are the way we learn. Stories are how we understand each other. But reality happens only once.” He addresses the pervasiveness of depression in our society. “Depression is a serious illness. It’s physically painful, debilitating. And you can’t just decide to get over it, in the same way you can’t just decide to get over cancer.” But the novel hinges on the notion of reality. “It is only real when there are stakes, when something is on the line.” I am waiting for my copy of his latest novel ‘Foe’ with great anticipation.

Trivia Night Continues a Festival Trad

by Glenda Julian an

It was another great evening of food, festivity and general knowledge. Bobby’s Place again played host to the only fund-raiser to take place during the festival. And what a night it was! Authors are auctioned off to teams by former mayor Glenn Hagel, and everyone does their best to answer tricky literary questions. This year, the total money raised for the Festival was $2,200.00, the largest sum to date. The friendly rivalry between Angie Abdou and Mark Medley also continued. Mark’s team has had two years of wins, and Angie’s team was ready to take them on. Her team, the Litwits, managed to take control in the end, to tie the wins at 2 - 2 for the two teams over the past 4 years. The questions were challenging. Categories were: Young Canadian Heroes, Banned Books, and Small Towns - Great Books. To win, the teams had to have the precise answer. Would you know these ones? What is the location of Monkey Beach, by Eden Robinson? (Kitimat, BC.) How about Who Has Seen the Wind by W O Mitchell? (Weyburn, SK.)

Angie Abdou celebrates another year on the winning Trivia team.

An Artistic Partnership That Delights the Senses by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

“RuBarb partnered with the Festival of Words for the world premier of ‘Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town’. This is the first time this musical is being brought to the stage and we’re happy to bring it during the Festival of Words”, says Evie Koop-Sawatzky. “I think it is very important that registered charities partner together rather than compete.” Sarah Simison, Executive Director of FoW agrees. “A lot of funders are recognizing that there are really interesting ways for organizations to collaborate.” Stephen Leacock’s iconic 1912 novel about the fictional Ontario Town of Mariposa has been transformed into a delightful musical. Creators Craig Cassils and Robin Richardson, both from Manitoba, were excited to be at the world premier of their work. Some things about small towns have stayed the same over the past century.

People know each other well (sometimes too well) but they also help one another through times of trauma and disaster. Mariposa suffers a steamer sinking and a church fire all in one night. And, a love story saves the day. The music was most enjoyable, and Josh Carley amazingly provided all the accompaniment. The voices of the cast were well up to the challenge, with special kudos to Geoffrey Tyler, Julia Dunne, Stella Salido Porter, Marianne Woods, Ken Spencer, Preston Vendramin, and Felix LeBlanc. Their harmonies were clean and strong. Their solos were performed with personality and panache. The witty political undercurrent was well worth the price of admission. A perfect Saturday night entertainment for a perfect literary festival.

Coteau Book Launch Features Saskatchewan’s Grand Lady of Letters by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

Sharon Butala is an iconic Saskatchewan writer and a member of the Order of Canada. Her best-selling books run the gamut from poetry to personal memoir, from non-fiction crime investigations to fictional crime thrillers. The Festival of Words hosted the Coteau Book Launch of her 19th book, titled Zara’s Dead. There are resonances of her personal life throughout even Butala’s works of fiction. Her investigative book The Girl in Saskatoon tells the story of the murder of one of her high school friends. “In 1961, a country singer named Johnny Cash chose a beautiful young woman named Alexandra Wiwcharuk to be his ‘Girl in Saskatoon’, and sang to her in front of a hometown crowd. A few months later, Alex was found brutally murdered on the banks of the Saskatchewan River.” Butala decided, 40 years later, to reconstruct the murder, to try to understand Alexandra’s life and family, and to speculate on possible police suspects. She conjures up a lyrical portrait of a world where life appeared so much simpler, and young girls dreamed their dreams of love

and marriage as life stretched before them. The murder has remained unsolved. Butala was followed by the Saskatoon Police. She received both helpful and threatening phone calls. She knew she was being kept from answers. She wondered whether the authorities had been involved or were just part of a cover up. Zara’s Dead follows up with a fictional portrayal. The heroine in this thriller is a 70-yearold woman whose husband has just died (like Butala). The condo she lives in is also like Butala’s. The book tries, again, to get at the nature of good and evil. It begins with a message left under her door - a name and phone number. An understanding that it has something to do with “How the mighty have fallen; how the impotent have risen”. While Butala acknowledges that she has no more answers about the real life killing when she began the investigation than at the end, Zara’s Dead allows her to revisit a situation that clearly continues to haunt her.

Sharon Butala is ever the consummate story-teller.

Saskatoon Playwright Terry Jordan Commands the Dramatic Reading Stage by Janet Kilgannon for Moose Jaw Express

The Play ‘Between Dog and Wolf’ was chosen by the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre for the 2018 FoW Dramatic Reading. The play was written by Saskatoon native Terry Jordan, an award-winning fiction writer, musician, essayist and dramatist whose plays have been produced across Canada, the U.S., and Ireland. The play is titled after that time of day when it is getting dark - that time between dog and wolf, between day and night, between two worlds, when you can belong to both worlds, whether limbo or purgatory. It is also a time when the characters can take stories from one another because they aren’t looking after their stories. Playwright Terry Jordan told the audience that the day was all about the number four. “Four hours to rehearse, four hours to get to Moose Jaw, getting up at 4 am, after 4 hours sleep, to do a 40-minute reading.” Playwright Terry Jordan, from Saska- The story begins in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and a political killing.

plot. So many Irish “over generations have been ruined by drink and fighting”. The play is about family and memory; about triumphs, failure and interpretations. It is about borders, boundaries, and the concept of immigration. All the characters are trying to find the answers to questions, and to bring peace to their reality.

Park Hotel Colts win seventh-straight league championship Women’s fastball dynasty continues with 30th city title in last 34 years. Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The Park Hotel Colts in the Moose Jaw Senior Ladies Fastball League know a thing or two about winning. They have won seven straight league titles and 30 championships in 34 years. The Colts gathered for the customary post-final team photo after defeating the Hustlers in three straight games in the league championship series last week – taking a 3-1 win in Game 1, dominating Game 2 12-4 and battling to a 3-0 win in Game three to close out the best-of-five final. “Everyone played as a team and there weren’t many errors, so it was really good,” said Colts pitcher Darby Fiddler, who gave up only thee hits in holding the Hustlers scoreless in Game 3. “They all play smart, they’re really good behind me and that really helps. I’m used to playing quick ball, but they play smart ball, and it’s nice to learn.” A first-year member of the Colts, Fiddler was well aware of the kind of legacy she was becoming a part of. “They’re really welcoming to me, I was a little nervous at first because I’m 30 years younger than them, but they’re awesome girls and a really fun team to play with,” she said. The ‘fun’ part of being part of the team included some extracurricular activities, all of which led to the team becoming closer and closer as a unit. Fiddler said there’s lots of team bonding in between games at tournaments and after league games. “We always celebrate and never get down, even after losses, so it’s always fun to be part of the team.” Colts 3, Hustlers 0 Both Fiddler and Hustlers starter Krissy Russo made the most of their defence in the series finale, resulting in a rapid-fire contest that took only an hour-and-15 minutes to play. The Colts scored the only run they’d need in the second inning when Nicole Whitehead led off with a single and came around to score on a base hit by Melanie Hopkinson. The Hustlers made things interesting in the sixth when Russo singled, went to second on an error, and third on a wild pitch. She then tried to scored on a Nicole Ansell ground out, but Colts

scoreless on four hits. The Colts broke things open in the fifth, scoring all three of their runs for the game on three hits, a walk and an error. Gray helped out her own cause with the key knock of the inning, a two-run single that scored Jade Waiting and Brentnall. Gray held the fort from there, giving up a single hit over the last two innings to secure the Game 1 win.

Canadians, Giants close out regular season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Canadians will be heading into the Rambler Park Fastball League playoffs on a high after closing out their regular season with an 8-0 win over Regina Silver Screen. The Moose Jaw Giants will be looking for better things after a pair of mercy rule losses – 14-1 to Earl Grey and 11-1 to the Bulyea Rustlers -- to finish off their campaign. As a result, the Canadians finish in first place with a 15-1-2 record, with their only loss coming two weeks ago, while the Giants finished in fifth with an 8-9-1 record. Canadians 8, Silver Screen 0 After two quick back-and-forth innings, the Canadi-

ans blew open a 1-0 game with four runs in the third and three more in the fifth to invoke the mercy rule. Dane Roy and Riley Almasi each hit two-run home runs in the contest, while Bryce Crosbie reached base three times and scored three runs. Blake Dixon was the winning pitcher, giving up only three hits and striking out six. Early Grey 14, Giants 1 The first 12 batters for Earl Grey all reached base, racking up 10 runs on 10 hits in the process. They extended their lead to 11-1 in the third before capping things with a three run fourth. Darryl Callaghan had the Giants lone run, a solo home run in the second.

Justin Sievert surrendered only four hits in earning the win. Bulyea 11, Giants 1 The Rustlers also got off to a quick start in the earlier contest, scoring four runs on five hits and then using home runs from Josh Jordan and Tucker Slough to put up another five in the second. Tyler Kifferling scored the Giants’ only run, hitting a two-out double in the third and scoring on a single by Lee Behrns. Colin McLeod gave up five hits to take the win. League action continues next week with the first round of the playoffs, with the schedule unavailable as of press time.

Lawn bowling club celebrates centenary Matthew Gourlie for Moose Jaw Express

Nestled in the eastern side of Crescent Park, the Moose Jaw Lawn Bowling Club has been a local institution for 100 years. The club will celebrate their centenary on Sunday, Aug. 19 with an open house from 2-4 p.m. All past, present and future lawn bowlers are welcomed to celebrate with the club. “We are celebrating 100 years and we couldn’t let the year go by without recognizing that,” said Bette Fox, the Moose Jaw Lawn Bowling Club’s acting president. “Just think of what has happened in 100 years and we still have our lawn bowling in town.” When the club was formed in 1918, its first home was in a park located just west of the Police station. “It moved from the Old City Hall Park on Fairford Street West to Crescent Park in 1953 and has been in that spot ever since,” Fox said. At the open house, the club will offer refreshments and have lanes set up for peo-

ple to come and try their hand at lawn bowling and see what the sport is all about. “We would like to get some more people interested in lawn bowling. It’s a lovely sport that takes you through the ages. So many people think it’s just a sport for old ages, but it isn’t,” Fox said. “If you get interested in it when you’re young, there are lots of opportunities to travel across Canada, North America and even Australia and places like Scotland if you’re competitive.” In the last decade, the club has had junior and adult bowlers who advanced to the national stage. Still, the club is largely recreational and social. They bowl three times a week — Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays — with games lasting from 90 minutes to two hours. “It’s open to everybody. There was a time when you had to dress a certain way, but that’s like everything — times have changed,” Fox said. “We’re modern now. We have all of the equipment. The only

It’s so quiet and you’re playing, and you have fellowship. It’s a lovely way to spend a hot summer evening.” While the club wants to welcome back former members and celebrate their anniversary, they also want to use the occasion to potential draw new members to the sport. Fox said that their membership has dropped off considerably since it’s peak in the 1980s.

“At one time, people had to line up to get to bowl on a Wednesday evening or a Sunday evening,” Fox said. “We were 100-plus strong. That was back in the ’80s. We were one of the strongest lawn bowling clubs in province, numbers-wise. It was that way for a number of years, but once we hit the ‘90s, the numbers started to dwindle. “This year we have a membership of 22 and we would like to see that a little stronger. We’re looking for more members like anybody else is.”

Tim Hunter brings grit, hard work to bench of Canada’s junior hockey team By Gemma Karstens-Smith - THE CANADIAN PRESS

KAMLOOPS, B.C. _ The young men vying for a spot on Canada’s junior hockey team know their coach’s storied legacy. They know Tim Hunter spent 15 seasons playing in the NHL as an enforcer in Calgary, Quebec, Vancouver and San Jose. They know he won a Stanley Cup with the Flames in 1989, an entire decade before any of them were born. And they know Hunter’s now sharing his experience with young players, working to shape the next generation of hockey greats. ``We all know his history and what he did for the game. So, it’s really nice to have him behind the bench. He gives great advice for young players, just how to develop and feel comfortable out there,’’ said Antoine Morand, a forward who’s hoping to make Canada’s squad this winter. The 57-year-old Calgarian was named head coach of the team last month after being an assistant coach with the squads that took home silver from the 2017 world junior hockey championship and gold from the 2018 tournament. This week, the new role has him in Kamloops, B.C., where Canada is taking part in the world junior hockey showcase. ``Any time you’re involved with Hockey Canada, it’s a real honour and a real thrill,’’ Hunter said of the promotion. The Canadians lost only one game in last year’s tournament, dropping a preliminary match against the U.S. 4-3 in a shootout. The country has won gold 17 times in the 42-year history of the world men’s under-20 championship, but Hunter said its past successes don’t put extra pressure on this year’s team. He said every player already goes in wanting to win it all. ``I want to make sure that we give ourselves the best chance to be in a medal game in January and play and compete and show the pride of the country in the way we play.’’ Maxime Comtois was a forward on the gold-medal winning team and said it’s nice to have Hunter back. ``He’s a really good coach,’’ said Comtois. ``He played a lot, played in the NHL. He knows what we feel on the ice, off the ice, so it’s nice to have him behind the bench.’’ Hunter said moving into the head coach role will mean being more of an ``eye in the sky,’’ letting other coaches and staff do their jobs, and being patient when it comes to lines and systems. Thirty-nine players are on Hunter’s current roster in Kamloops, and the coach said he’s working on develop-

ing a unique mindset and style, while still playing the highly skilled game the country is known for. ``It’s summer hockey, but we’re still trying to win and put a template in place to play fast and play the Canadian way,’’ he said. Hunter has been coaching since he wrapped up a playing career that saw him put up 138 points and 3,146 penalty minutes in 815 NHL games. He spent 15 years as an assistant in the league then moved on to developing younger players. For the past four years, he’s been leading the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors.

“...He knows what we feel on the ice, off the ice, so it’s nice to have him behind the bench.’’ -Maxime Comtois, forward

Given his background, coaching just made sense, Hunter said. ``I’ve got a lot of experience and that experience isn’t really of use unless you use it and talk to these young men every day about little things, how to get better both as a person and as a player,’’ he said. Jett Woo plays for Hunter in Moose Jaw and said he’s taken lessons from his coach’s time in the NHL. ``He was a pretty gritty player, a hard-working player, and I think those are the things I’ve been able to pick up playing for him _ hard work and compete level,’’ said the young defenceman. Woo said Hunter will take the time to sit with players, going over video and explaining what they need to work on. He added off the ice, the coach is a fun guy to talk to and is always ready to crack a joke.

``I’ve been able to kind of learn things about him and he’s been able to learn things about me. To have that connection and understanding between each other, that’s grown over the past cou-

ple years and that’s shown,’’ he said. Hunter said developing tight bonds is key to getting players to perform on the ice, noting that he always gets to know his guys both as a person and as a player. ``You can’t have a successful organization or high-level performance team without knowing everyone on the team and their challenges or their wants and needs,’’ he said. Those relationships continue after a player has left Hunter’s team. He stays in contact with a lot of the players he’s mentored and sometimes brings them in to talk to his players. The coaching style has worked for Woo, who said that Hunter has helped him grow into a better player and develop his game to the fullest. ``I can’t say enough good things about him,’’ he said. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Miller Express stay alive in series Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Miller Express aren’t about to pack it in for the season just yet. A three-run triple by Mitchell Robinson kicked off a five-run first inning and Express starter Ryder Yakel held the Weyburn Beavers to only two runs over seven innings to take a 9-4 win in Game 3 of their best-of-five Western Major Baseball League series. The victory came on the heels of a pair of tough losses to open the series – 10-3 in Game 1 and 14-4 in Game 2. “It really feels amazing because we know we’re good ball players and we know we can play with these guys,” said Miller Express outfielder Ty Schindel. “We showed it tonight and we’re going to show it the rest of the series.” It didn’t take long for the Express to get things going in their first playoff game at Ross Wells Park. Six of their first seven batters reached base in the opening inning, with Robinson’s shot leading the assault. Moose Jaw didn’t let up on Weyburn starter Landon

“We knew that’s what we’re capable of in our line-up one through nine, and everyone came through tonight,” Schindel said. All that offence made things easy for Yakel, who gave up only two runs on five hits in his seven innings of work. Tannar Galey and Logan Hofmann gave up run on a pair of hits each over the final two innings, but that would be as close as the Beavers would get. “We knew Ryder was going to throw a good game and we knew we were going to get a lot of fans out and Ross Wells would be pumping,” Schindel said. “So, it was nice to come out here and get a big win for the fans.” Eric Marriott was 2-for-4 at the plate with a pair of runs Miller Express starter Ryder Yakel delivers against scored while Markus Gregson was 2-for-4 with a pair of Weyburn during Game 3 runs batted in.

Miller Express hand out annual awards Moose Jaw Express Staff

Blake Gallagher did a little bit of everything for the Moose Jaw Miller Express this season, and when you bring value in a variety of areas to your baseball team, coaches are going to notice. So, after a Western Major Baseball League campaign that saw Gallagher perform solidly at the plate and in the field, while also acting as one of the team’s top relievers, it wasn’t too surprising when he was named the team’s Most Valuable Player at their annual awards gathering recently. Gallagher started the season in the bullpen and, more often than not, held the fort when called upon; he never allowed more than two earned runs through his 13 appearances, striking out 20 while walking 12 and putting together a 4.80 earned run average, holding opponents to a sub.200 average most of the season. Gallagher became a regular in the infield as the season progressed, putting up a .927 fielding percentage and making only

Then there was the Fredricton, N.B. product’s performance at the plate – Gallagher finished third in team batting after hitting .296, while also hitting two home

runs and knocking in 14 to go along with crossing the plate 20 times. The Pitcher of the Year award was shared by Mitchell Robinson and Mason Garispe.

Robinson – who won the same award last year – started six games and put together a 1-1 record, including three quality starts. He finished with a 2.61 earned run average and 51 strike-outs with only 12 walks. Garispe saw action in nine games and went 4-3 with five quality starts. He struck out 67 and walked 21, finishing with a 5.32 ERA. The Gold Glove award as the team’s top fielder went to Eric Marriott after he put together a stellar .989 fielding percentage while patrolling the outfield. He played a team-high 41 games and 356.2 innings and made one error to go along with 92 put outs. Scott Platt won the Miller Express Silver Slugger award as the top hitter. He hit .299 with nine doubles, one home run and 13 RBI while scoring 23 runs. Ty Barclay received the Coach’s Award after catching 29 games, hitting .211 with 16 RBI and 21 walks.

Canucks fall in provincial final Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Canucks opened the tournament with a 12-8 win over the Regina Pacers and went on to score 62 runs through the weekend of games, falling 13-10 to the Pacers in a dramatic gold medal game. Along the way, the Canucks defeated the Saskatoon Thunder Braves 13-5 and Prince Albert Royals 15-14 in the round robin before defeating the Dinsmore Dynamos 12-7 in the semifinal. “There were a lot of runs scored on both ends, the bats were there the whole weekend top to bottom and there weren’t too many dead spots,” said Canucks coach Kevin Zerff. “Then our defence was solid, the pitching was solid and the guys played well in the field. “We always said that if everything came together we could beat any one of these teams, and that showed this weekend,” he added. Pacers 13, Canucks 10 A day after scoring seven runs in the final inning to defeat Prince Albert, the Canucks found themselves on the other side of a stunning comeback – giving up five runs in the seventh to lose the provincial final. Earlier in the game, the Canucks staged a comeback of their own, overcoming a 7-4 deficit with five runs in the fifth. “Tyler Lorenz led the offence with a 4-for-5 performance that included four runs batted in. Ryan Zerff and Tysen Jordison split time on the mound. Canucks 12, Dinsmore 7 The semifinal played out in eerily similar fashion as the final, as Dinsmore held a 7-3 led in the fifth only to see Moose Jaw take over the game with seven runs in their half of the inning – and this time make the lead stick.

Lorenz was 4-for-4 with two runs; Riley Skarbon 2-for4 with two walks and two RBI. Bryden Pow was the winning pitcher, giving up five runs on six hits in five innings of work. Canucks 15, Prince Albert In the final round robin game, the Canucks trailed 14-8 heading into their last at bat when all heck broke lose, starting when the Pacers looked to have a player that had pitched earlier in the day take over at catcher. That’s against Baseball Sask rules, with the goal of protecting player’s arms from overuse. “Unfortunately, they made a mistake or overlooked it because they didn’t have enough personnel,” Zerff said. “It’s a serious rule and we have to follow it. It brought in a lot of emotion and it just added to the weirdness.” Prince Albert’s coach was ejected for arguing the rule, and they didn’t have another certified coach on the bench, which would have resulted in a forfeit if not for a Royals parent who was certified coming out of the crowd and taking over for their team. All the rigmarole came to a head when the Canucks scored their seven runs in the bottom of the inning to take the win. Pow was 3-for-3 with two runs and two RBI, Jordison 2-for-3 with a three runs scored and Keian Klein 3-for-4 with three RBI. Chayce Vanthuyne and Jeremy Kohl split time on the mound.

The Canucks wasted little time taking over the contest, scoring three runs in the first and building an 8-2 lead through four innings. That was more than enough for Lorenz and Ryley Gross on the mound, with Lorenz pitching into the fourth and giving up two runs on four hits; Gross gave up a single run on three hits in closing out the game. Canucks 12, Pacers 8 A six-run fourth inning gave the Canucks a 9-2 lead in their opening game win. Zerff went 3-for-4 with three runs scored while Gross was 3-for-4 and also crossed the plate twice.

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express From the tiniest of figurines using only a handful of bricks to expansive scenes using hundreds of thousands, there were no shortage of interesting and cool creations at the 2018 edition of Brickspo held at the Moose Jaw Western Development Museum. The annual event has become a popular one for the Western Development Museum, as evidenced by the packed parking lot and steady stream of patrons flowing through the building, checking out the wide variety of builds on display. One of the first thing visitors came across during the event was a table full of miniature television and movie characters, some sporting the most minute of details. Many were the handiwork of Estevan’s Waylon Klix, a frequent contributor to Brickspo over the years, with a wide variety of subjects and builds

“it’s a matter of using the parts however you can, and sometimes in a way they wouldn’t usually be used. It’s an interesting process,” -Jim Jo, Builder “Most of the time, I like something and I ask myself if I can build it out of Lego,” said Klix when asked how he chooses his subjects. “Things my children like, things I like, sometimes it’ll be an interesting shape... during the Humboldt Broncos accident, I was watching the newscast and had some of my bricks and I ended up building one of these.” The process is simple trial and error, until the final product looks like you want it to look. “When David was being sculpted, (Michelangelo) was asked how he sculpted him and he said ‘I just take away the material until David remains’,” Klix said. “It’s the same thing with building with Lego bricks, you put them together until what you want remains.” It’s much the same for Regina’s Trevor Lien, only his work requires some serious precision – his Rube Goldberg device, or Great Ball Contraption, as it’s known in the Lego builder community – was one of the most popular displays at the show, with a steady crowd checking out how the balls went from start to finish through the device’s circuit. Getting things to work together and moving

the way he wanted them was the biggest challenge for Lien. “You plug the motor into the gears, the hip bone is connected to the leg bone,” he said with a laugh. “It’s noodling around and troubleshooting, you try and put thing together and if it doesn’t work you re-work it and then hopefully it works out. “It’s surprising how difficult it is to get the momentum just right between the pieces. And there are standards the Great Ball Contraption community follows, like the rate of fall per minutes, the amount of rise the element should produce.... Then there’s thing like making sure the balls aren’t being fired into the next piece too quickly and overwhelming it, things like that.” Lien’s machine was made up of nine modules, each taking an evening or so to put together depending on the complexity of the components. “After that, it’s just getting them all connected and that can be the hardest part,” he said. Outside of the buildings, vehicles and action figures on display was a selection of artwork featuring a wide variety of subjects, including a massive four-foot-by-six-foot portrait of Star Wars character Yoda, put together by Regina’s Jim Jo. As could be expected with something that imposing, it was quite the project for even an award-winning builder like Jo – six months of planning, then graphing it onto graph paper and putting it together. All told, Jo estimated it took him a year from start to finish, and it presented a unique conundrum. “The easiest way to describe it is I take a photograph I like and just by eye determine if it’s something I can do with Lego colours and that limited palette, and that picture of Yoda fit the bill,” he said of how he chose his subject. “It took me about six months of planning and then I had to gather all the bricks to do it. Green isn’t a really common colour, it’s actually pretty rare, so it took me awhile and once I had them all, it was pretty much just a couple of days.” Jo also brought a display of miniatures based on the cult classic science fiction show Firefly, including a backdrop and build of all the main characters from the show. “I was free-building them, so I’d put it together, take it apart and see what works... it’s a matter of using the parts however you can, and sometimes in a way they wouldn’t usually be used. It’s an interesting process,” Jo said.

Bombardier says C Series shift to Airbus allows it to focus on regional planes By Ross Marowits - THE CANADIAN PRESS

With its focus no longer diverted by the aircraft formerly known as the C Series, Bombardier Inc. says it is working to improve the profitability of its regional jets and turboprops by boosting sales and cutting costs. The Montreal-based transportation giant’s regional aircraft order backlog rose to 116 planes, enough for three years of production that sets it up for the potential to increase production rates. Its commercial aircraft segment won orders for a total of 16 Q400 aircraft and 35 CRJ Series equipped with its new cabin design. Bombardier’s shares increased nearly five per cent at $4.99 in Thursday trading after the company posted strong results and signalled that its turnaround plan remains on track.

Bombardier, which reports in U.S. dollars, said overall revenues increased three per cent to $4.26 billion in the second quarter. Most of the improvement was due to an 11 per cent increase in revenue at Bombardier Transportation, which accounted for $2.26 billion of the total. Revenue fell at Bombardier’s commercial aircraft and business aircraft divisions. The company achieved a second-quarter profit of $70 million as it posted a $232 million increase free cash flow, helped by $600 million net proceeds from the sale of Downsview airport in Toronto. Net income was equal to two cents per share and compared with a year-earlier loss of $243 million or 11 cents per share. On an adjusted basis, Bombardier earned $87 mil-

lion or three cents per share. Analysts had estimated one cent per share of net income and an adjusted loss of one cent per share, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon. Bombardier concluded a number of key strategic actions in the quarter, including closing a partnership deal with European giant Airbus. Under the partnership, the European aircraft manufacturer acquired a majority 50.01 per cent stake in the C Series commercial jet program effective July 1. Airbus has since renamed the two models of C Series passenger jets to the A220-100 and A220-300. © 2018 The Canadian Press


Hot African air brings scorching heat, dust to Europe MADRID _ Hot air from Africa is bringing a new heatwave to Europe, prompting health warnings about Sahara Desert dust and exceptionally high temperatures that are forecast to peak at 47 degrees Celsius (116.6 Fahrenheit) in some southern areas. The torrid weather meant that public services were put on alert in Spain and Portugal. Temperatures were forecast to reach 44 degrees (111 Fahrenheit) Thursday in the Portuguese city of

Evora, 130 kilometres (81 miles) east of the capital of Lisbon, and in the Spanish province of Badajoz, across the border. A hot air mass was moving northward from Africa, authorities said, warning that the mercury could peak at 47 degrees Celsius this weekend in the southern Portuguese town of Beja. Portuguese authorities issued a nationwide health warning, including

for dust from the Sahara Desert. Warnings were also issued for 40 of Spain’s 50 provinces. Up north in Sweden, the country’s official tallest point is set to change amid record temperatures. Scientists said a glacier on Mount Kebne, the Scandinavian country’s highest peak at 2,111 metres (6,925 feet, 10 inches), is melting and is no longer Sweden’s tallest point. Gunhild Rosqvist, a Stockholm University professor in geography, said the glacier lost four meters (13 feet, 2 1/2 inches) of snow in July alone as Sweden endured record temperatures that triggered dozens of wildfires, even in the Arctic Circle. In neighbouring Finland, a supermarket came up with a novel way of escaping the heat. The K-Supermarket said on its Facebook page that patrons hoping to cool down could sleep overnight in its air-conditioned store in Helsinki. Homes in Finland are designed to handle the extreme cold and damp

typical of the Nordic region, not the recent high temperatures. In eastern Europe, Poland endured unusually high temperatures up to 34 degrees Celsius (93.2 Fahrenheit), forcing its power plants to go into emergency mode to increase output due to the wide use of air conditioning and electric fans. In the streets of Warsaw, the Polish capital, authorities placed cooling water installations around and advised people to stay indoors. Dozens of the country’s Baltic Sea beaches have ``no swimming’’ warnings due to health risks from algae blooms. Farmers across the continent were battling the effects of drought, so the European Union offered to speed up funds to help them cope. German farmers have already asked their government for 1 billion euros ($1.17 billion) in financial aid to help cover losses from this year’s poor harvest. © 2018 The Canadian Press


Wisconsin man contracts rare blood infection from dog WEST BEND, Wis. _ Surgeons have amputated the legs and hands of a Wisconsin man who contracted a rare blood infection from a dog lick. Greg Manteufel remains hospitalized at a Milwaukee area hospital. Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin infectious disease specialist Dr. Silvia Munoz-Price says the bacteria that invaded Manteufel’s body comes from the saliva of a dog. She says the infection caused Manteufel’s blood pressure to drop and circulation in his

limbs to decrease rapidly. His wife, Dawn Manteufel, says her 48-year-old husband was perfectly healthy until he began having flu-like symptoms that landed him in the hospital. The bacteria attacked quickly and aggressively. Munoz-Price says the infection is rare, adding that 99 per cent of people with dogs will never contract the bacteria. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Hector grows to hurricane force over the Pacific Ocean MEXICO CITY _ A new hurricane has formed far out in the Pacific Ocean and forecasters say they expect it to continue gaining force. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Hector will continue to move deeper into the Pacific and won’t pose a threat to land over the next few days, but it could grow into a major hurricane. Hector had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph (140 kph) Thursday morn-

ing. It was centred about 1,135 miles (1,825 kilometres) west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula and it was moving toward the west at 14 mph (22 kph). © 2018 The Canadian Press


How to stretch summer job money By Brianna McGurran THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Toiling behind the ice cream counter or sweating on the lifeguard stand aren’t just rites of passage for college students. You might need summer job money to help cover the ever-rising cost of tuition, living expenses and textbooks, plus visits home. Money earned from a summer gig may not seem like much, especially if you’re working only seasonally. According to the most recent data on median wages from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women ages 16 to 24 earn $206 a week for part-time work and $511 for full-time work. Men in the same age group earn $215 a week for part-time work and $528 working full time. But even with lean earnings from just a few months, here’s how you can set

aside a portion of your pay and change your financial fortune. SEND MONEY DIRECTLY TO SAVINGS Your employer may give you the choice between getting paid by direct deposit or by payroll card, which works like a prepaid debit card. When you’re paid by direct deposit, you’ll generally have the option to split your paycheque into separate checking and savings accounts. You’re more likely to save money you’ve earned if some of it never hits checking at all. Consider sending 20 per cent of your paycheque to savings to start. Make sure you have enough money in the checking account for regular expenses first; you can always save more. INVEST IN YOUR FUTURE

You won’t regret saving a portion of your summer income for the long term. You won’t be able to spend it right away, but it will last long past graduation day. Another way to plan for your future: Put down a deposit on a secured credit card. Your deposit _ say, $200 _ will generally be equal to your credit line. That will help you safely build credit, which could mean lower interest rates on a car loan and an easier time getting an apartment in the future. PICK THE RIGHT BANK ACCOUNT A checking account with lots of fees will needlessly eat into your earnings. You might be tempted to choose the bank your parents use but shop around. Make sure you understand minimum

balance requirements and monthly maintenance, ATM and overdraft fees. Several online banks and credit unions offer free or low-fee checking accounts. Prioritize one that will reimburse ATM charges or has a wide ATM network, and that has low overdraft fees. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s website offers a guide to managing your checking account . Done right, your summer job can lead to new friends, pizza money, a line on a resume _ and a step toward longterm financial security.

Grocery stock clerk’s act of kindness goes viral BATON ROUGE, La. _ A grocery stock clerk’s kindness to an autistic 17-yearold has resulted in a hefty thank-you college fund for the clerk and a part-time job offer for the teenager. Jordan Taylor was shelving bottled orange juice Sunday when he noticed Jack Ryan ``Ziggy’’ Edwards watching him. Edwards was transfixed by the work, Taylor told news outlets, so the clerk asked if Edwards wanted to help. Edwards’ father, Central High School football coach Sid Edwards, told The Advocate that his son repeated ``Help me.’’ Taylor told him to come around and showed him what to do. The two quickly established a system in which Taylor picked up cartons of orange juice and milk and handed them to the teenager, who promptly put each carton in its proper place. ``The guy’s patience and time with Jack Ryan was just beautiful,’’ said Sid Edwards, who filmed the two working together. ``He talked to him. He encouraged him. He worked with him.’’ At one point in the video, which went viral after Edwards’ daughter Delaney Edwards Alwosaibi posted it Monday on Facebook, Sid Edwards can be heard telling a friend, ``I’m watching a miracle in action.’’ At another point, Edwards asks Taylor where he goes to school. ``I graduated two years ago. I’m trying to get back into school now,’’ says Taylor, 20. Alwosaibi told WAFB-TV, ``My mom and I are both special education teachers and I have to say, if he does go on to go to college I might put a bug in his ear to pursue that path because people like my brothers and my students need people like him around.’’ On Wednesday, Alwosaibi set up a GoFundMe account titled, ``Send Jordan from Rouse’s to School.’’ More than $57,000 in donations had poured in by Thursday afternoon, and the total was rising hourly. Ali Rouse Royster, a managing partner for the Rouses Markets chain, said that when people started sharing the video with her, she sent it on to the company president and human resources director. ``It was such a nice thing for him to do that I wanted to make sure they recognized that,’’ she told The Associated Press. She said Rouses also has offered Edwards a job. © 2018 The Canadian Press

What’s Next? by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor I was a big fan of the television series “The West Wing”, starring Martin Sheen as President of the United States. In many an episode, when a task was accomplished, the president, without hesitation, would voice to his personal secretary, “What’s next, Mrs. Landingham?” There was little time to admire the accomplishments before setting a new goal. “What’s next?” is something that we should all embrace. Not only does it keep life interesting as there is more to life than coffee row, but research is telling us that “What’s next?” may actually keep us alive. A study published in 2014, in the journal Psychological Science found that having a purpose in life was a predictor for mortality. During a 14-year period, 9 percent of the participants in the study died, all of which reported a lower purpose in life during the

study period. Interestingly, age did not seem to be a factor. This research leads us to believe that having a purpose in life is important at any age, if you want to live longer. Whether you call it having a purpose, goal setting, or even just having dreams and aspirations, it is healthy to having something to look forward to. I’m not saying there isn’t any value in rest or admiring what you have accomplished. I’m not saying that you should never retire. What the research shows is that having purpose in life leads to a longer life, and likely one that has more meaning. When you do retire from a job you’ve had for 35 years, you should be asking yourself, “What’s next?” I remember years back when there was hype about Y2K, when the calendar was turning from 1999 to 2000. There were some reports that many sick or elderly waited until after 1999 turned to 2000 to pass away, just because it was a significant date to be able to experience. Isn’t this just a miniature version of goal setting? Researchers have yet to understand why we live longer when we have purpose. Maybe having purpose lessens the chance of depression. Maybe having purpose leads one to adopt a healthier lifestyle. What’s next for you? A part-time job or some volunteering? Take a class or start a hobby? Travel to a foreign land? Large or small, there should always be something next.

On the Front Porch

Lorem ipsum

St. Barnabas

God is not moved by your problem. He’s moved by your faith. Have you ever wondered why there is turmoil and trouble all around the world... and then wonder why God doesn’t stop it or fix it? Actually, He’s waiting for you! In fact, He put us in charge of this earth (He started with Adam) and He’s waiting for you to bring hope and healing to your world; the world that you live in... where you live, work and play. Problems are only opportunities in which we can bring God on the scene to fix them. He wants to use us to be His hands and feet to bring hope, help and healing to the world around us; our sphere of influence. If each of us would take responsibility for those in our sphere, we would change the whole world over! Truly, we would. The power of multiplication would go to work quickly. If we touch one person and that person touches one person and that person touches one person, we would very quickly touch many. There has been a certain situation in my life that I’ve been burdened with for some time; it just didn’t seem to be improving or changing and I had become pretty discouraged about it. Just a few nights ago, I woke up with a phrase ringing through my mind...” You don’t have a problem. All you need is faith in God.” As I went back to sleep, I pondered that thought; a phrase I’d heard in the past few years. So, of course, I “googled” it and realized it was spoken by R.W. Shambach, an American televangelist, pastor, Word of Faith minister of the Word and author (born April 3, 1926 and passed away January 17, 2012), who had spoken those words. I knew this phrase was a word from God that I could stand on. As I’ve meditated on it and rested in faith over this situation, I’ve seen God working behind the scenes to cause it to come into line. Praise the Lord! Problems are not our problem. Our problem is that we don’t have eyes of faith to see the solution. We are looking through our natural eyes instead of seeing the situation through God’s eyes. God has the solution. God is the solution. He has every resource we need to solve the problem, yet we try to do things in our own natural, flesh which may work for a season but will end up burning us out and eventually failing. We need to go to a new level. Our problems aren’t our problem. All we need is faith in God. If we can’t see that God has a solution, then we aren’t filled up with enough of His Word nor have we tuned our spiritual eyes and ears into His. In fact, when we try to “fix” our problems on our own, we actually are elevating our abilities above God’s abilities and saying we are God and not him! That is called idolatry... anything that is exalted over God is setting that as a “god” in our life. He says we should have no other gods before Him! The next time we have a problem, we can use our faith to move that mountain in our life! Faith is the substance 60 Athabasca Street or “title deed” of things hopedEast for.

PREVOST, BERNICE ELIZABETH (nee SMELTZER) On July 31, 2018, Bernice Prevost’s exhausted body, but inquiring mind departed this world at the age of 100 years. Bernice was born November 5, 1917 in Saskatoon, SK. She lived her earliest life in Mossbank; then moved to Moose Jaw to finish her schooling and became a teacher. She ultimately taught at the Big Muddy School. It was there she met and married a handsome and well-dressed cowboy, Noel Prevost on December 26, 1940. The LX ranch near Harptree became their home. The work was hard, but they enjoyed their lives with community activities and life-long friends. Since schooling was difficult to access and education a priority, they moved to Moose Jaw and began a new life. Eventually, they moved to Edmonton to be closer to their family. A time came when Bernice needed more support so she lived the last few years of her life in Youville Home in St. Albert. Bernice recognized the value of education and continued to take courses until she was 92 years old. Her knowledge and extensive reading sparked many interesting conversations (provocative, radical or creative) with family and friends. Bernice’s legacy is her kind spirit & spiritual soul which will live on in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also leaves us a valued family history dating back to the sixteen hundreds. Bernice is survived by her sister Shirley Stewart; children Noella, Roch, Cherie (Barry) Hein, and chosen daughter Christina Meyer; grandchildren Deena (Dave), Jeri (Kelly), Zoe (Jim), Tim, Jordy (Mike), and Marty; great grandchildren Gocean, Kenzi, Rylee, Morgan, Deegan, and Allegra. Much loved and loving nieces, nephews and friends are mourning her loss. Bernice will join her parents Gilbert and Edith, inlaws Alphonse and Eugenie Prevost, and brothers Morrison and Gordon Smeltzer. Her husband Noel, daughter Debra, and grandchildren Katie and Nathan will be waiting to welcome her. Bernice and her best friend Suzanne Giraudier will be anxious to share old times and carry on with their new journey. A “Time to Remember” will be held on Friday, August 10, 2018 at 2:00 pm at Westlawn Funeral Home, 16310 Stony Plain Road, Edmonton, Alberta. In lieu of flowers and donations, the family requests that you do something kind in honour of Bernice.

Love Shelley, Ton, Greg, Barb, Marc, Ashley, Chris, Lexi, and Thea.

Farmer willingness to share data with other organizations varies By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS A survey of Saskatchewan farmers found varying levels of willingness to share data with organizations. The master’s degree thesis by University of Saskatchewan student Madeline Turland found 51 per cent of respondents will share their data with universities but only 25 per cent will share data with government. Forty-two per cent will share data with crop input suppliers and 37 per cent will share with grower organizations Only 29 per cent will share with farm equipment manufacturers while 28 per cent will share with financial institutions. “Government appears to be the least preferred organization with university researchers the most preferred organization,” Turland told the Farming for Profit Conference in Moose Jaw. “Farmers may be hesitant to share data if they feel they are being exploited to gen-

erate large profits for corporations.” Protecting business relationships may be another reason for not sharing data. “If you get hands on farmer data you may be able to manipulate prices.” And farmers’ unwillingness to share data with government may stem from a fear of new environmental regulations or a fear of penalties for unintentional violation of regulations. Offering incentives between $10 and $100 to share data had no impact in the survey although “with an $100 incentive, farmers generating $3 million in annual revenues are less likely to participate than the average farmer generating $100,000 to $500,000 revenues.” Big data collections and interpretation has become important in recent years to effectively manage agriculture. “A problem with this data is that farmers don’t know how to extract all the value from the data sets. Yield maps are interesting and useful but much more useful when aggregated for every farm.” Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

camp allows girls to build self-awareness and confidence while working with active female tradeswomen,” says Jessica Baldwin, provincial facilitator and coordinator for WITT at Sask. Polytech. “Participants learn that the welding industry has a variety of career pathways that can take you virtually anywhere in the world.” One of the instructors for the camp at the Moose Jaw campus, Reinhard Lehne said this was an important workshop for the girls to be part of. “This is the first camp of this kind we’ve ever put on in Moose Jaw. It’s a camp for girls to experience welding, maybe for the first time and see if this is something they’d want to look forward to in a career. I think this was really important for them to come and experience this career and learn from those of us in the industry. We had an awesome time in the camp and s the week went on and we did more complicated projects, I discovered how enthusiastic the girls were to learn.” One of the students, Emily Soderstron said she enjoyed learning about the trade. “It was very exciting to be part of the camp and have these new experiences. I’d love to become a welder. I’m excited to learn more about the field.” The CWB Welding Foundation is a national registered charity that supports the Canadian welding industry by increasing public safety awareness in welding and addressing the welding skilled trade shortage and mismatch in Canada.

The Saskatchewan Polytechnic Women in Trades and Technology (WITT) program has partnered with the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) Welding Foundation to host a Mind Over Metal welding summer camp for girls in grades 9-12. The week-long camp was hosted at Sask. Polytech campuses across the province. Mind Over Metal camps were developed by the CWB Welding Foundation to introduce youth to the exciting career opportunities available in welding. The camps focused on female youth to provide the young women with a safe learning environment to try welding; something they may never have considered. Participants got to learn about welding safety, gas metal arc welding, oxy/ acetylene welding as well as sheet metal work. The camp is one of 84 Mind Over Metal camps across Canada in 2018-19, with many camps focusing on at risk youth, Indigenous people, women and newcomers to Canada. The camps are designed to dispel myths around females pursing trades careers. “These camps are specifically designed to provide youth with a hands-on introduction to welding and inspire them to pursue a career in welding. They are also making lasting memories and building confidence while being supervised by professionals in a safe environment,” said Deborah Mates, executive director, CWB Welding Foundation. “The CWB’s Mind Over Metal

Come to think of it, it’s true…it seems more men are now doing much of the family’s grocery shopping, more than ever before. According to statistics, this is the case. I see it every time I head to the supermarket to get my groceries. I would venture to say that the age median for men Joan Ritchie EDITOR who shop for groceries for the household is probably mostly between the mid-20’s into the 40’s. I think they could be categorized as millennials. They are unique in characteristics; not saying that’s bad because society and upbringing has conditioned individuals to be the way they are, along with their environment. This all has contributed to them forming their own ideals. I was born a few decades earlier, so it makes sense that we not necessarily see the world with the same eyes, so we do what we do. Of course, there are anomalies to the norm. Gents who are the cooks in their domain need to do the shopping because of their circumstance; there may not be anyone else to do it. And of course, there are many male foodies who just love to show off their prowess in the kitchen, so they make their way to the produce isle every chance they get. Gender roles have certainly changed over the years and tradition no longer dictates what goes on in households. In most households, two breadwinners are needed to keep the ship on an even keel and at the end of the work day, duties are rightfully shared, too, from doing laundry to kitchen duties, and that includes taking the time to go to the store to purchase the necessities of life. Some male grocery shoppers do make great choices on their own in the supermarket but others like someone I know very well; well…he loves the odd grocery extravaganza, along with me. I get the necessities on my list and he fills the cart with lots of other great items that somehow made it in there just because…It’s a strange phenomenon. But, whatever works for you in your domain or the grocery isles, do what you do do well. We all like to eat!

Samantha Waditaka is the proud recipient of the Paul Favel Indigenous Award for $5,000. “SIGA’s First Nations Scholarship Awards Program encourages education, training, and employment opportunities within the First Nation population across our province. It helps Indigenous students successfully achieve career goals and has the potential to make a major impact in their life,” says Lillian Denton, SIGA’s Director of Community Investments. “We’re always looking for ways to support our Indigenous communities and youth and this is one way we can help reduce financial barriers many face,” she adds.

Moose Jaw construction industry faces a poor year By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Unless something drastic happens in the next six months this year will be depressing for the local construction industry. Building permit values from city hall for the first six months of 2018 are less than half last year’s pace. The city issued 93 permits to June 30 worth $8.44 million – a decline of 55 per cent from $18.9 million last year. Half the decline is from the housing sector ($5.85 million) where 11 houses worth $3.35 million were started this year compared with 24

worth $9.2 million last year. The outlook in January was optimistic with two major projects on the front burner. A $50 million pea processing plant was planned for the new industrial park south of the asphalt refinery. Canadian Tire planned a $13.5 million project consolidating three stores on part of the exhibition grounds. The pea plant has allowed agreements with the city for land purchase and tax concessions to lapse. Meanwhile Canadian Tire has given no indication of when work will

start on the site. The Moose Jaw Exhibition Company has agreed to give up about 13 acres of leased land for the project. In June, building permits were $1.36 million, a reduction of 3.1 million. Four new single family houses worth $1.1 million were started compared with three worth $1.17 million last June. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net
