Riverside Mission continues to serve clients daily; seeks community support for upcoming fundraisers Sasha-Gay Lobban Moose Jaw Express

Despite heavy construction along Manitoba Street East, the Riverside Mission wants to reassure the community that the Mission is still open for business and serving its clients on a daily basis. The Mission, whose goal is to care for and show compassion to the less fortunate, operates a shelter for men who are homeless, provides support programs and runs a daily soup kitchen. Jacob Oddie, Chaplin and Support Supervisor at Riverside Mission who served as Interim Director over the summer, says it has been a great summer for the Mission as it got off to a very busy start at the beginning of July. “It’s been good for us this summer—July was a lot busier than August. For the entire month of July, our shelter was full but in August, it dwindled down in that regard,” he said. “Right now, our transitional housing program is half full and we will be getting more clients. The program has been going really well.” Riverside Mission operates a soup kitchen that is open for lunch three days per week: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, starting at 11:15am. They also provide supper daily, Monday to Friday, starting at 5pm. Oddie says the number of persons they serve daily are climbing at its usual pace. “In regard to the community soup kitchen, numbers are climbing up to what they usually are. During our lunch hours, we serve up to 35 people and for suppers, the Mission serves up to 45 persons per day, Mondays to Fridays.” Oddie says it is ‘business as usual’ at the Mission even with road construction taking place at the front where the main entrance is blocked. He says people can however enter at the back of the facility. Coming up in September, the Mission will be hosting several fundraising events. Oddie says it costs $25,000 per month to operate the facility with the help of the community. “We have two fundraising events coming up in September. Our first one is on Thursday, September 13th at the Canadian Tire parking lot. The Suburban Extended Stay Hotel Moose Jaw is putting on a fundraising BBQ for us and Hub Meat Market will e providing the hot dogs and hamburgers. We invite people to come down and support us.” The Riverside Mission will also be hosting its popular annual event, Harvest Banquet. The event did so well last year that the Mission will be hosting it TWICE this year. Harvest Banquet will be held on Tuesday, September 25 and Wednesday, September 26 at Sportsman Center. The Banquet will start at 6:30pm. Tickets are $35 and a table of 8 is $240. “Last year’s event was so good, we had to do it twice this year. A lot of people wanted to come but didn’t get a chance to because it was sold out last year, so we found it fit to do a two-day event so that we can accommodate everyone.” You can get tickets for the Harvest Banquet at Riverside Mission and at the upcoming BBQ. Oddie added that two of the things that the Mission is looking


towards working on this year to improve its facility are: heat venting for a section of the kitchen and a boiler that needs repairing. All proceeds from the fundraisings will go to Riverside Mission and will remain local.

Horizon Air Q400 Turboprop Crashes Near Seattle By Richard Dowson, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada

August 13, 2018 - The tragic crash of a ‘borrowed’ Horizon Air Q400 Turboprop from the SeaTac airport on August 11, 2018 brought back memories of a similar event in 1944 with a Saskatchewan and Moose Jaw connection. On December 6, 1944, five foot nine, 135 pound, Sergeant Pilot Donald Palmer Scratch stole B24 Liberator Bomber EW282 from the Boundary Bay airfield south of Vancouver. When the Liberator got stuck in mud on the side of the runway, Sergeant Scratch stole a twin engine Mitchell Mk II, Bomber, s/n HD343. This time he managed to stay on the black-out runway and get airborne. Don Scratch was stationed at Boundary Bay as a RCAF pilot and during a night of drinking his favorite rum, he Sergeant D. P. Scratch, Died Dec. 6, 1944 decided to go flying. Airborne in the Mitchell, he began a tour of Vancouver, Northern Washington State and the result of a failure in the fuel supply system.

Scratch died in an air-acci- He didn’t have enough fuel for either so he spent an hour dent. They determined he lost control of the aircraft as a buzzing the USAAF Base at Argentia, Newfoundland.

Flying Officer Scratch was given a dishonourable discharge for the event. He re-enlisted in September 1944 at Edmonton and assigned the rank of Sergeant Pilot. He was posted to Boundary Bay. The Saskatchewan connection is that Don Scratch was born July 7, 1919 in Maymont, Saskatchewan where his father was the local medical doctor. His parents divorced and as a child he moved with his mother to Ashmont, Alberta. The Moose Jaw connection is that Captain Al Seward (Retired), who passed away in Moose Jaw, February 2018, told me the story of Scratch. Seward and Scratch flew out of Gander, Newfoundland on anti-submarine patrols in 1943 and early 1944. He and Don had spent a week on leave in Montreal during the war. Al recalled a few colourful details of the week. Another unique connection to Moose Jaw was an Ashmont Legion controversy that arose when Don Scratch’s name was to be put on the Ashmont cenotaph. A couple a members objected because he stole airplanes. Bob Cheshire of Ashmont, who had married a gal raised near Avonlea, Saskatchewan, made certain Scratch’s name went on the cenotaph. Small world. I lived in Ashmont for 15 years and never knew the Scratch story until I moved to Moose Jaw. As a post-script, I hope the memory of Richard Russell, the young man who took the aircraft from the Sea-Tac Airport for a ‘joy-ride’ is treated with dignity and is respectful. Like Scratch, he was a nice kid who got into trouble for a prank and lost his life. There was nothing mean or malicious about his actions. He was just a kid who did something silly and it cost him his life.

Lawn bowling club holds open house; part of 100-year celebrations for local club Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

could see a junior program launched in the future. “With Kim getting back involved, we’d like to introduce a junior program next summer,” Fox said. “All it takes is a spark and it can take right off... we’ve had the public school kids out in the past, but didn’t have anything for them outside of that one time. So hopefully that’ll happen next.” And that was one of the key ideas behind the open house – sparking interest for the future. Daniel Morin of Home Hardware is one new player hoping to see more rookies on the greens and has

Former provincial junior champion Kim Alexanderson (nee Stevenson) looks on as Moose Jaw city councillor Brian Swanson delivers a bowl during the Moose Jaw Lawn Bowling Club open house.

Moose Jaw’s Lawn Bowing Club is 100 years old and still going strong. They celebrated their centenary on Aug. 19, with a special open house that featured cake and punch, plenty of reminiscing from members young and old and, of course, a chance for everyone to take aim at a few jacks themselves. “So many things have happened in the last 100 years when you think about it, and only something like us and the tennis club have been around that long,” said club president Bette Fox, while watching a young family try their hand at the game. “It’s a sport for all ages and one where you can grow old in it. Your age doesn’t matter and you can do really well at any age; it’s always a lot of fun.” The club has seen many iterations and locations over the years, with two of the most famous and successful locales at the old City Hall site and their current digs in Crescent Park at 340 Third Ave N.E. “When you look at the archives and what the people before us took the time to put together, it’s just remarkable,” Fox said. “I remember the park where the old City Hall was and how nice it was... it was pretty grandeur; it had a gazebo and it was a really great location.” The move into the current facility coincided with a boom in the sport in Moose Jaw, with all the lanes busy almost every

night of the week. “It really took off, too, there were some nights where you had to sign up in order to have a chance to bowl. We’d like to see that again,” Fox said. “We’d always like to see more people involved and maybe even host a few tournaments.” The club currently has 22 members and runs three nights a week: Sunday, Wednesday and Friday with a pair of lanes going each session on the nearly immaculate greens maintained by Parks and Recreation “It’s more of a recreational thing and we have a lot of fun. And it’s wonderful on a Wednesday because we have the Concerts in the Park going on, so we get to enjoy the music, too,” Fox said with a laugh. “It’s been a real good season this year, too; everyone has enjoyed themselves.” Players looking to get into the more competitive side of things are welcome too – and can do so knowing that plenty of champions have come out of the Moose Jaw club in the past, including perennial national championship contender Ernie Meid, along with former junior provincial standouts Charlie Taylor, Jordan Gailey and Kim Stevenson. Stevenson – now Kim Alexanderson – was on hand Sunday to offer tips and instruction to players just trying out the sport. Fox hopes her return to the club

So, it’ll be great to see things grow that way again.” New players are welcome to try out the game any regular night, with a $5 drop in fee and the only requirement being players wear flat-soled shoes.

More secrecy at city council compounds public confusion on DFFH issue City council actions this month on the Downtown Facility and Fieldhouse (DFFH) have left many voters with greater concern than before about council secrecy. This city council, after a series of in-camera meetings, cooked up a scheme to dissolve the DFFH board and replace it with the city manager. Some of those secret meetings included administration. Some did not. Advance notice of most meetings was posted online. City spokespersons noted by Ron Walter the only requirement for advance notice of council meetings is the message board at city hall – just another indication of how out of touch this council is with the times. The bylaw dissolving the board made up of council members and private citizens could be prudent. But there is no public information, as of this writing, for taxpayers to make any decision. To form an opinion, taxpayers need public information on why the action was taken. Not a clue has been released by city council – some might say that’s because council doesn’t have a clue. The mayor has been quoted saying this involves a personnel matter and is not being taken lightly. Aside from making the city manager czar over Mosaic Place and Yara Centre, council also had the city manager investigating the personnel matter. Someone obviously figured out that having the city manager investigate and manage the place seemed a conflict of interest. A couple of days after the investigation was announced, the city said an independent third party was handling the investigation. Why wait so long to release

the use of a third party? We don’t know. The secrecy surrounding the whole affair has left a cloud of suspicion over a number of people. Have some employees at these facilities done something wrong? We don’t know. Have the three council members of the now dissolved DFFH board done something wrong? We don’t know. Have the private citizen members of the now dissolved DFFH board done something wrong? We don’t know. None of the three councillor board members has taken part in the secret meeting discussions. They have not attended or have recused themselves from taking part. Before recusing himself at one meeting, Councillor Scott McMann challenged the city’s methods of handling the issue. The secrecy involved and the hiding behind the Privacy Act have left a cloud of suspicion over a raft of people from the DFFH employees, city hall employees, DFFH board members to the recently fired DFFH manager. How bad is it? A taxpayer heard one of the three councillors on the now-dissolved board has hired a lawyer. This taxpayer immediately assumed that councillor is in trouble, when in fact the lawyer was likely hired as protection from council. The other two councillors might be wise to hire a lawyer to protect them and their reputation from council and the city. This is the kind of thinking council’s gong show had created. City council was already on thin ice before this matter. Now council is floundering. If rumours about the nature of the personnel matter are true, council will have even less credibility for its actions.

Indeed, we didn’t see any harvesting until near lunchtime. My shotgun rider Keith was telling about his recent drive to Wisconsin, where he saw all sorts of old barns in the forested areas. And he counted seven First Lutheran Churches. “I never saw a Second Lutheran Church,� he quipped. We drove by an antelope, almost hidden in the durum field where it was grazing. A large hawk on a bale seemed to pose for a photo or was determined not to leave its hunting territory. We made it to Ogema. Keith informed me he had been to two places called Ogema on his recent trip South of the Border. The Ogema cafe where we usually have coffee is closed. We are informed the new owners close Monday and Tuesday but the food is good. “Small town hours,� said the older gent. In Bengough, we find the ice cream/sandwich shop closed and for sale. The cafe is closed. The museum with the neat coal-mining display is closed, too.

This sleepy little place was once a big cattle centre with 4,000 to 5,000 head at a time in the stockyards during the fall run waiting for rail cars to get to market. Now Aust’s General Store is the main draw. Aust’s with a faded wooden sign over the front door saying: “If we don’t have it you don’t need it,� is a remnant of the oldtime general stores that once served rural Saskatchewan selling everything from food, hardware and clothing to meals and a cup of coffee. The store is a real tourist attraction. The high school rodeo group has a rodeo here in late August, continuing a tradition. On to Coronach for a pork cutlet at Deb’s Kitchen. The place has done some renovations adding space and a new main floor washroom. The road to Willow Bunch is under construction with neat new pavement from the Highway 18 north to town. At Rockglen, we stop for coffee and home-made pie. A sign on the metal door to the Co-op Centre reads “Hot Door.� The cashier says the door was pretty hot on those 40 degree days. Keith wants to get home by six o’clock for a promised supper engagement with his wife. I want to put up posters at Wood Mountain and Limerick. “You didn’t see that sign in the restaurant at Coronach,� says Keith. “It was behind you. It said the best thing you can say to your wife is ‘Yes Dear.’� We headed straight home. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

New splash park opens in Bushell Park Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The dog days of summer will become a little more comfortable and sociable for Bushell Park families, with the opening of the Splash Landing splash park on Sunday, Aug. 18. Military dignitaries were joined by Moose Jaw MLAs Greg Lawrence and Warren Michelson, along with Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie. 15 Wing Commander Col. Denis O’Reilly heralded the park as a positive step when it came to supporting families in the community adjacent to the military base. “Military families are the strength behind the uniform, and anything we can do to give back to them is great, to recognize the sacrifices they make every day, whether they’re supporting a mom or dad that’s deployed, or even moving schools,” O’Reilly said. “Some military kids end up going to school in two or three different provinces in some cases. They have to make new friends and things like that.” “So, any resources we can give to families to mitigate the stress and the additional workload is something we want to be a part of.” “This splash park will be a wonderful place to be in the summer, it’s right in our backyard and they can come and sit down on a park bench and watch the kids have

fore that people really liked and we should replace it. There are new ideas now, too; wading pools are stagnant water and not the best for a community. Splash parks have taken over because they’re cheaper and more environmentally friendly and are safer for families... So it’s safer for the kids and much more fun.” The project was supported by the 15 Wing Personnel Support Program, which oversees a wide variety of activities geared

toward making things that much more pleasant for the 196 family units in Bushell Park, and the 160 kids aged newborn to 11 there. “We have a lot of very young families here because of the training base,” O’Reilly said. “A lot of people are starting their careers here and are with their families already. Then, it’s hard work and stress, and having places where you can get away from the trials and tribulations of pilot training, it’s great for them, as well.” The park took about two years to put together, from start to finish, with engineering and planning, costing about $360,000. And as could be expected, it carries a 15 Wing theme with jet fighters and a helmeted pilot overseeing it all. “We’re not only a military base and training facility, we’re also home to the Snowbirds,” O’Reilly said. “So, we have a rich history of pilot training with people from other countries, as well, and we want this to be a meeting point where kids can meet each other and become friends and spouses can meet up with each other when their spouses are deployed and have that support. “It’s definitely something we’re proud to have in our community.”

While farmers across the province had 16 per cent of the crop in the bun by August 20, southwestern operators had just about one-third off the fields. The provincial average is twice the amount harvested the week before and up from a five-year average of seven per cent. In the southeast which includes Moose Jaw, just under one-quarter was done. Province-wide, 55 per cent of peas and lentils were off with 14 per cent of durum and 16 per cent of barley.

Five per cent of spring wheat and soybeans were completed with three per cent of canola. Twenty-nine per cent of canola was ready to cut. The harvest is so far ahead of average as little or no rain has impeded the operation. Topsoil moisture across Saskatchewan on cropland is rated 25 per cent adequate, 44 per cent short and 31 per cent short.

The family of renowned Moose Jaw artist Gus Froese is honoring his legacy with the opening of “Tracing the Wind” at the Moose Jaw Cultural Center. The exhibit opened on Thursday, August 16 and will run until August 31. At the exhibition, locals can get an opportunity to see a selection of Gus’ work spanning over 40 years. The selection of pieces shows a variety of his drawings starting from the early 70s. There was a good turnout at the opening to view some of the artist’s never before seen work and reflect on his tremendous impact on the arts community. His work has not only left an indelible mark on Moose Jaw, as seen in many of the murals across the city, but he has also left his mark on the rest of Canada as a renowned artist for his detailed and intricate work. Rob Froese, one of his sons, says the exhibition is a retrospect of his father’s work. “This exhibit is entitled Tracing the Wind—a retrospect of some of his drawings. This is a small selection of some of his work he did over the years. Most of these were done in the 1970s and 80s and some later on. He passed away just over a year ago. Just about the same time, the Cultural Center asked if we could put on an exhibition of his work. In that time, we had a chance to select some pieces, mainly drawings. It became the theme of paper and ink. A lot of the pieces here show wildlife or landscapes, themes he really did a lot of work with.” Rob, who is a ceramic artist, says it is great to share some of his father’s work that he grew up seeing, that has also influenced his own work as an artist. He said that in the 90s, Gus started painting murals more. “He painted a lot of the murals around Moose Jaw and a lot of work across Canada. It was in the 80s that he did most of the studio work, some of which are displayed here. It is nice to mix his selections and see the things we grew up with that taught me my work as an artist. It is so nice to be able to see this—his work spanning many years.” Rob added that this exhibition is no different than what his father would have done because he showcased at many galleries when he was alive. He says this exhibition, however, is a way to honor his father. “He had regular exhibitions in Moose Jaw and this is no different from what he would’ve done. This exhibition seems like a continuation of what he always did, and it is also a way to honor him. This, however, focuses on one small part of his practice because he had many parts to it,” he said. “These pieces reflect the strengths of his drawings mainly and his way of translating perspective and distance, especially on the Saskatchewan landscape that he knew very well.” Kathleen Froese, Gus’ wife says this is a wonderful way for the family to honor Gus. “This is a way for the family to personally honor Gus and a way for my children to categorize the work and put it together. His work here at this exhibition covers a long period of time and is a big part of his life. These pieces remind me of many stories he would tell because he was a great story teller. It’s nice to see all of this on display. The Cultural Center was very accommodating in allowing us to put this together.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Demise of “hound” travel a sorrowful reality Because I haven’t used the services of the “hound” recently, the news that it would soon conclude runs west of Ontario didn’t really sink in as an immediate hardship. But of course, losing the Greyhound Bus Lines’ Joyce Walter routes through highways in For Moose Jaw Express this province and elsewhere ronjoy@sasktel.net is a major kick in the pants to individuals who rely on the bus as their only means of transportation outside their city limits. With the Saskatchewan Transportation Company selling off its assets over the past two years and now Greyhound loping off into the sunset, Prairie folks are being left by the side of the road, being forced to rely on taxi service where available or the goodwill of friends and family members to act as chauffeurs. As previously mentioned, it has been many years since we’ve hopped on the Greyhound, the last time being to attend a conference in Brandon when highway traffic wasn’t recommended. Like the Pony Express, poor highway conditions seldom stopped the bus. In those cases, I was happy to let someone else do the driving while I read a good book or tried not to allow the overly-large gentleman with garlic breath

to take up too much of my travel time. Housemate, meanwhile, was in another seat enjoying a siesta. It was that same trip that the driver was not the usual friendly man behind the wheel. He was rude to other passengers and made sure the temperature suited his metabolism, even when passengers asked for more heat. Maybe he knew he was eventually going to lose his job and just didn’t care. The Greyhound, while I was growing up in a rural town, was often our link to the city. Before I had a driver’s licence and when Dad wasn’t available to be the driver. I would take the bus to Moose Jaw, sometimes with Mom, or with a couple of girlfriends. We’d hop on the early morning bus, spend the day shopping or getting our hair done, use one of the lockers at the bus depot to store our purchases, have photos taken in the 25-cent photo booth and get chased out of the waiting area by the man who tended the ticket window. If Mom were our companion, he was much nicer. A meal at the Uptown Cafe with Mom, watching the band atop the east wall and then heading back to claim our parcels before the bus ride home would conclude a rather long day. Dad was always there to meet us but the driver made sure we had a ride before he headed towards Chaplin and Swift Current. Without Mom along, we three friends would shop, get our hair styled, have lunch at the Ambassador

Cafe, then head to the Studio Theatre for a show — even though we always had to leave before the show was over so we wouldn’t miss the bus. At least we got to watch all the cartoons, the news reel and see what movies were coming for future dates. Most of the time Dad would meet us but a few times we had to bravely cross the railroad tracks, check around the corners of the elevator and scurry to our homes down the dark street and an even darker alley. The first time I met Housemate’s family was via a Greyhound bus ride to Medicine Hat and wouldn’t you know it, that was one of the times a winter storm closed the highway and delayed our return to Moose Jaw by an entire day. We stayed with his aunt and uncle and I quickly called home to Mom and Dad to let them know I hadn’t been kidnapped — in case anyone at work reported us missing. The freight business of the bus line will also be missed. A friend’s mother packed up a live turkey and wanted to send it to her daughter in Calgary. The driver protested but the turkey was accepted, and the friend had a home-grown turkey for Christmas dinner. I never did find out how the bird met its demise in Calgary but knowing the family, it would have been in the backyard of their upscale neighbourhood, by the light of the moon. RIP Greyhound in these parts. You filled a need when we needed you.

Western $9.8 billion Prairie $8.9 billion Ontario $10.1 billion Quebec $4.3 billion Atlantic $1.2 billon Canada’s largest lender to agriculture increased assets by 11 per cent to just over $33 billion last year. Farm Credit Canada increased the loan portfolio 8.4 per cent, or $2.6 billion, according to the annual report for the year ended March 31. In that year, profits generated $794 million, an increase of 5.5 per cent. “The 2017-18 growing season had its share of challenges, and we announced a customer support strategy to assist customers in parts of eastern Ontario and western Quebec facing hardship due to excessive moisture,” said Michael Hoffort, president and CEO of the federal Crown Corporation. “We also offered support to customers across Western Canada facing potential cash flow problems due to delays in grain movement to international markets.” The FCC strategy for the current year involves five areas: revitalizing the commitment to agribusiness and agrifood, enhanced support for the next generation of operators, advancing knowledge and advisory support, expanding the focus on social responsibility and making innovation a bigger part of work. Building a positive perception of the agriculture industry remains an FCC goal. Over 250 events celebrated Canada Agri-

culture Day with 15,200 people attending FCC learning events. Primary production lending remains over 88 per cent of the 145,000 loans at $28.2 billion with growth of 8.2 per cent last year. The $4.5 billion loan portfolio to agribusiness and agrifood was up 8.7 per cent. Provisions for loan losses of $30.9 million increased from $19.3 million in the previous year, Meanwhile impaired loans fell to $136.9 million from $182.9 and make up the lowest percentage in three years. FCC gained loan market share of .6 per cent for 28.6 per cent of agricultural lending in Canada. All of the chartered banks gained .2 per cent share for 37.8 per cent share. Private individual lenders lost half a per cent market share for 7.1 per cent with credit unions and the Alberta Treasury Board each losing .1 per cent. Oilseeds and grains at $10.5 billion is the largest sector for loans followed by dairy at $6.2 billion. Third in line is agri-business at $3.3 billion, followed by poultry, $2.5 billion, and beef at $2.1 billion. Part-time farmers have just over $2 billion in loans with the ‘other’ category at $1.8 billion. Greenhouse loans amount to $1.2 billion with $1.1 billion in agrifood, $1 billion in fruit, and $934 million in hogs. FCC expects new loans to agricultural production of just over $3 billion in the current year and $145 million loans to agribusiness and agrifood. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

APAS asks for livestock tax deferral program By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

Hay yields and poor pasture conditions are worst in the southwest but other areas are below average too. Southern Alberta, a normal source of hay for Saskatchewan in poor hay



A Saskatchewan-based farm organization wants the federal government to set up a program offering tax relief to drought-stricken livestock producers. The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan has called on the federal government for a 2018 livestock tax deferral program to assist producers caught with short supplies of feed and parched pastures. “Two extremely dry years have left producers with no choice but to sell some of their herds because hay is not

available and feed costs are too high,� said APAS president Todd Lewis. Under tax deferral, producers would not have to pay income tax on sales of herd animals. Lewis said the hay shortages are widespread and called for a province-wide program, not just in designated areas. According to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture crop report, hay yields across the province are down to an average 1.1 tonnes an acre. In most years average hay yield runs around 1.5 tonnes an acre.

crop years, is suffering a drought this year, as well, with asking prices up to $170 a tonne for hay. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Band City Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society Inc. (SCRAPS) wanted to share this story with Moose Jaw Express readers.

The Story of Courage & A Miracle from the Marsh It is a day that few of those involved in the rescue will ever forget after a desperate call came in asking for help in locating a tiny, possibly abandoned kitten in a thick marsh alongside highway 202. It is in that sad and lonely location that the unbelievable story of Courage begins….. Wendy & Guy were just leaving Buffalo Pound Provincial Park after a camping getaway when they spotted what appeared to be a small animal in the middle of the road. As the concerned couple pulled over to investigate and reached out to move the presumed lifeless kitten, the tiny, grey & white baby lifted it’s head and scurried into the thick brush surrounding the marsh. After hours of searching in the sweltering heat, a discouraging near capture & the heartbreaking discovery of a deceased littermate, the couple reached out to SCRAPS for help. SCRAPS volunteers met the exhausted rescuers & before long were joined by members of SCOR Rescue (Street Cats of Regina) who had learned of the kitten in the marsh & also offered to help in the search. Best described as searching for “a needle in a haystack”, the unforgiving hours passed & locating a tiny, weak, one pound kitten live in the dense marsh dominated by thick grasses & reeds sadly seemed an unlikely outcome. It was only through the sheer determination of a group of dedicated volunteers unwilling to give up, along with a huge dose of COURAGE to continue despite the odds

ple ups, downs and the unpredictability of the past couple of weeks, a common link has been present for this little kitten – a committed, cohesive web of dedicated, caring & compassionate individuals that believed that this small life had value. They came together as a team – holding a common goal clearly in sight – a happy ending for Courage. From the rescuers that braved unforgiving conditions at the marsh, a keen & loving foster Mom Sheila, Vet Dr. Janzen from MJ Animal Clinic & the many crucial people behind the scenes – Courage is now growing & thriving! All those involved recently met to celebrate a very special milestone for Courage ….his bittersweet, inspiring, final journey to his forever home!

Local refinery expansion presents opportunity for Gibson shareholders Expansion of the Moose Jaw Refinery may be just what Gibson Energy International needs to get the share price back above the $20 range. The announcement drove shares up eight per cent in three days to $20.14 but they have slipped a little to $19.90. The Calgary-based company will invest up to $25 million to increase local refinery production by 30 per cent to between 19,000 and 22,500 barrels of oil a day. This expansion is an updated version of a planned 2014 expansion that was suspended when construction costs and oil price uncertainty made it less feasible. Gibson indicates this expansion, being completed in late 2019, will pay back costs in one year. The 2014 expansion was supposed to create up to 10 new permanent jobs.

When Gibson bought the then asphalt refinery, production was 8,000 to 9,000 barrels a day for five months a year. The refinery was Gibson’s mainstay bringing in three-quarters of revenues until the company re-invented itself as an energy infrastructure company specializing in field gathering pipelines and storage terminals. Last year the largest shareholder, M&G Inc., British-based owner of 17 per cent of Gibson, called for major changes to make Gibson as profitable as it once was. After going public at $16 a share in 2011 Gibson moved to $37.50 by 2014 with a low of $12.50 in 2016 as the oil industry struggled. M&G suggested selling the refinery, and other assets it considered non-core to become an energy infrastructure compa-

ny with a focus on storage and gathering pipelines. Gibson was already on the way to becoming an energy infrastructure company and will soon derive 85 per cent of gross profit from that area. The company owns pipelines in the growing Viking field in Alberta and has a large position in the Permian basin in Texas. Along with 1.7 million barrels of storage near Edmonton, Gibson has 8.1 million barrels in Central Alberta at the Hardisty Hub with another 2.1 million barrels under development. Gibson believes Hardisty is good for another one to two tanks a year of new storage for a while yet. The M&G pressure caused Gibson to unload some assets with funds being used to pay for expansions. The U.S. environmental operation has

been sold. Natural gas liquids wholesale, Canadian trucking and non-core U.S. trucking and injection stations are on the block. The annual dividend of $1.32 a share yields an astounding 7.45 per cent. The company only earned 23 cents a share last year but large depreciation allowed the payment. According to Yahoo Finance, 13 analysts have an average estimated $20.81 price with the highest projection at $24 CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security.

Students enjoy learning experience at RuBarb’s summer theatre camp Sasha-Gay Lobban

As RuBarb Productions Inc. gears up for its fall theater program, parents and students are lauding its 2018 summer theatre camp, which recently came to an end. The camp, which ran for one week, saw about 30 participants from Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, Assiniboia, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto. It was a full week of activities where students got to learn and participate in musical theatre, improv and learning how to use props and lots more! Evie Koop-Sawatzky, director at RuBarb says the participants were excited about learning and had an overall great experience. “About 30 students participated in the camp this year. We had a lot of participants from many

different places, even from outside of Saskatchewan—Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and more. The kids learned a lot. They were excited about learning and theatre; it was just a great experience overall. We encouraged them to step out of their comfort zone, while in a room full of people who also helped to build their confidence. This unlocked all kinds of learning for them. We look forward to working with more kids in the fall.� Dekoda Nelson, 13, was a part of the camp this year. She says she enjoyed the camp a lot. “I’ve been part of RuBarb’s program for the last three years so it’s nice to have a more casual setting this year, where I can learn more. We did musical theatre and

dance and improv. In improv, I’ve really learned how to come up with stuff on the spot and to express my words easier, which is generally hard for me. It’s been really nice.� One parent, Dawnette Brett, who had two daughters in the camp this summer, said her children were very excited about what they were learning at the camp. “They have absolutely loved the theatre camp. My oldest who is 13 was in triple threat and she loved every minute of it. She loves anything with RuBarb. She’s also part of their regular program throughout the year. For my youngest, who is 9, this is her first time at camp. She has autism and they were very welcoming and allowed us to bring a mentor with her. They were

just so accommodating to let her be integrated and included in the group, so she had a great time. They both come home every night singing and dancing and talking about props and improv,� the proud mom said. “I think RuBarb is a fabulous organization that really benefits the community.� At the end of the camp, students got an opportunity to perform a full hour of dancing, acting and singing to showcase some of what they learned throughout the week to families and friends. Registration is now open for RuBarb’s fall classes that start September 17. For more information, visit RuBarb at https://www.rubarb.ca/.

Mae Wilson Theatre, a special place for her great-grandson Sasha-Gay Lobban

This year’s RuBarb summer theatre camp was very special for one participant, eleven-year-old Mitchell Pattison from Toronto. His family roots stem from Moose Jaw and he was eagerly looking forward to seeing the Mae Wilson Theatre. Pattison is the great grandson of Mae Wilson; the Mae Wilson theatre was dedicated and named after her. She was a great pianist who made a big contribution to the arts and her passion was carried on through her children, who participated in theatre, dance and lots more! Marlene Jerred, youngest of Mae Wilson’s children, is Mitchell’s grandmother and still lives in Moose Jaw. She said her mother [Mae Wilson] was an incredible pianist. “My mom played by ear and could sit at the piano and play anything. She was quite amazing. The theatre was dedicated to her,� she said. The oldest member of the Wilson family, brother Larry, purchased the theatre. It then became the Cultural Center but the actual stage area of it was designated to be called the Mae Wilson Theatre in 2004.� Jerred said, “Our family was very involved in the arts, involved in entertainment in one way or another.

taught dance and were involved in acting. Our brother, Larry who purchased the theatre was also involved in acting.� Like his great-grandmother and the rest of the Wilson clan, young Pattison is passionate about the arts.

He is already showing great success in following the talents of his family. His father is also a music teacher who plays a vital role in developing his son’s talents. “I’ve done church choirs; I’ve been in a couple choirs in Toronto—the Toronto children’s choir, my school choir and I’ve also done Broadway at my school twice. I’ve also sang at Blue Jays games twice and lots of other things,� said Mitchell. He says he was happy to visit Moose Jaw to participate in RuBarb’s theatre camp. “I was looking forward to seeing what the theatre looks like because I haven’t seen it since I was a baby. This was also my first singing camp.� Pattison’s mom Julie Jerred said she is elated to have her son participate in a camp at a place where her family’s legacy is tied into. “He has a variety of interests and I think it’s interesting that he can be part of a camp in the town where I grew up and at the Cultural Center where the theatre is named after my grandma. I think it was a great opportunity to be a part of.�

Apple Pie Day by community raises funds for Mossbank museum By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Little Jack Horner had the right idea — pulling a plum from a pie and eating it with delight and self-congratulation. We can all join Jack in the enjoyment of seasonally-fresh and juicy plums that can be transformed into a variety of items to be enjoyed now or when the winter snow is falling outside. ••• Plum Perogies 20 or more prune plums 3 tbsps. sugar Dough: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp. sugar 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 3 egg yolks 2 tbsps. softened butter 1 cup warm mashed potatoes Sauce: 1/2 cup butter 1 1/2 cups brown sugar 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs Slice plums almost in half, open slightly and remove pits. Place 1/3 tsp. sugar in hollow and then close. Place plums in a bowl and set aside. To make the dough, sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a pile on a breadboard. Make a well in centre and add potatoes, egg yolks and shortening to the well. Work in until dough is pliable and smooth. Roll out on a floured board to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 4 inch rounds. Place a plum on a round and top with another. Seal edges firmly to avoid leaks when cooking. To make sauce, in a frying pan melt butter, stir in sugar and some juice from the plum bowl. Stir in crumbs to thicken sauce. Keep sauce warm. To cook perogies, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add perogies and continue boiling for about 10 minutes. Place perogies in frying pan with sauce and turn each to coat. Serve hot with extra sauce on top.

••• Plum Orange Jam 5 cups prepared plums 1 tbsp. grated orange rind 1 pkg. fruit pectin 1/4 cup orange liqueur Pit and finely chop a large, juicy variety of plums. Place in a large stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Add orange rind. Gradually add fruit pectin and stir until dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Return to a full boil and boil hard for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim foam using a metal spoon. Stir in orange liqueur. Ladle jam into sterilized jars, remove air bubbles and apply lids. Process in a boiling water bath in a large canner for 5-10 minutes. Remove jars and cool for 24 hours before storing in a cool, dark place. Makes about 7 half pint jars.

Pit and finely chop plums. Combine all otther ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Add plums. Return mixture to a boil and boil gently, stirring occasionally, for about 1 3/4 hours or until thick and syrupy. Ladle sauce into hot, sterilized jars, remove air bubbles and apply lids.

The Mossbank tradition of Apple Pie Day on the fourth Wednesday of August continued this year with the big table in the community hall groaning under the weight of pies. Just about any variation of apple pie you can think of was available for a donation to the museum. Apple Pie Day is a major fundraiser for the Mossbank and District Museum. The annual event started when the museum was formed around the Ambrosz blacksmith shop and house. Apple trees in the yard were loaded with fruit. Someone came up with the plan to convert the apples into cash for the museum by making apple pie. The event caught on so well that local res- With ice cream idents supplement with apples from their own trees. The Ambrosz blacksmith shop is the only blacksmith shop in Saskatchewan still located on the original site. Besides the blacksmith shop and house, the museum has a school house, old farm machinery and displays about the Second World War Air Force bombing and gunnery school base. The base graduated 3,000 air gunners and over 2,500 air bombers under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan between 1940 and 1944.

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

Make Zero Your Mission – At Home, Work and Play The last long weekend of the summer is significant in many ways. It is the end of the summer holiday season and the beginning of the school year, however Labour Day offers an opportunity to reflect on the place of work in our lives. Work that is meaningful goes beyond making a living to adding contentment and quality to our lives. A safe workplace is key to fulfilling work. While there has been a continual decline in workplace injuries, there were still 27 work-related fatalities in our province last year. 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of “Mission Zero”, an initiative of WorkSafe Saskatchewan, the partnership between the Workers’ Compensation Board and the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety. Mission: Zero is a call to action and goal for employers and companies to achieve zero workplace injuries, zero fatalities, and zero suffering by families. What does Mission: Zero mean? Mission: Zero means working toward zero injuries, zero fatalities, zero suffering. It means believing all unintentional injuries are predictable and preventable. It means that the only right number of unintentional injuries and fatalities is ZERO. It means becoming a champion to make my community a safer place to live, work, and play. It means, as employees and citizens, we are going to work together to make Saskatchewan the safest province to live, work and play.

It means, at my company, we believe in Mission: Zero. We put safety first and prevent injuries to ourselves, our co-workers, our families and neighbours. It is up to all of us to prevent injuries. In 2009, Safe Saskatchewan also adopted Mission Zero, the symbol and its ambitious goal, as the prevention goal for all injuries – on the job, in our communities and in our homes. Last March, WorkSafe Saskatchewan announced the formation of a strategic alliance of organizations brought together by the Saskatchewan Safety Council that results in everyone in Saskatchewan between the ages of 14 and 21 having access to completely free career-focused safety education. Saskatchewan will become the first jurisdiction in North America to offer universal career-focused, industry specific safety training, completely free to youth. Industries came together with education partners to launch this initiative after a 5-year pilot program involving more than 20 School Divisions and 6 First Nations. The Career Safety Education program will encourage the development of awareness, attitudes and habits which result in a culture of safety affecting both workplace and home life. As we make the transition from summer days to fall activities, please remember to Make “Mission: Zero” your mission – at home, work and play. I offer my gratitude and best wishes to my colleague and constituency neighbour, Lyle Stewart, long-time Minister of Agriculture. He recently announced he would be stepping down from this role as he battles cancer. Lyle, who brought his dedication, expertise and experience to advance the agriculture industry in Saskatchewan, will remain MLA for Lumsden-Morse. David Marit, MLA for Wood River, has been appointed as Saskatchewan’s new Minister of Agriculture.

Sparkling Water May Have Just Lost Some of its Sparkle

to weight gain, as artificial sweeteners may trick the body into releasing more insulin. We may be putting too much blame on the sugar and other sweeteners for their part in the ever-increasing waistlines. Is it possible that the bubbles themselves may be part of the problem? According to an article published in the journal, Obesity Research and Clinical Practice (2017), this may be true. To understand this possible link, one needs to understand how hormones affect our hunger. One particular hormone, ghrelin, may be the key in this equation. Ghrelin is considered the “hunger hormone”. It is produced in the brain, small intestine and pancreas and acts to increase appetite. Not only does it make us hungry, it also promotes fat storage in the body. Research is telling us that the carbon dioxide (which produces the bubbles in carbonated drinks) stimulates the release of ghrelin. So, it is possible that the bubbles may be a contributing factor in today’s obesity epidemic (insert sad face emoji). Maybe it’s time for me to shake my bubble habit. Maybe I should shake the can before I consume. Maybe I should just stop reading research.

I just don’t know anymore. When I’ve taken our family’s cans and bottles to the local recycling depot in the past I was always pleased that our household did not consume very much in the way of sugary drinks. There was the occasional pop can in the mix of containers, however, the majority of the empties were club soda cans or bottles that had sparkling water. While I do drink some water every day, I tend to prefer drinks with a fizz as the bubbles seemed to refresh me more than flat water. I believe daily sugary sodas to be bad for one’s health, so my default daily drink was either club soda, or sparkling water, with the occasional squeeze of lemon. My borderline “holier than thou” attitude with regards to beverage choice had its inflated bubble popped recently when I read an article linking carbonated beverages to weight gain. The paper suggested that the carbonation, the bubbles, themselves, may contribute to added weight. The link between sweetened soda drinks and obesity has been pretty strong and almost irrefutable, however, pretty much all the blame has been put on the sugar found in nearly all these beverages. Even diet drinks are being blamed for contributing

Local toy run celebrating its 30th anniversary Matthew Gourlie - Moose Jaw Express

In 1988 the Moose Jaw Cycle Association decided to start a charity toy run. They never could have imagined how it would grow over the years. “It’s kind of hard to believe it’s already been 30 years,” said Murray Roney, one of the toy run organizers. “It started off as just a small group of guys and it’s grown to where it’s a very well-attended event. A lot of people will come from out of town and really support the community. It’s really grown into a nice event.” The 30th annual toy run parade will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15 with riders gathering on Manitoba Street near the Fourth Avenue bridge. Bikes must be licensed and helmets are mandatory. Riders are asked to bring a new unwrapped toy, book or a cash donation. All of the proceeds from the toy run go to the Salvation Army. “We usually have a pretty good turnout. It just depends on whether guys are in the field or not,” Roney said. “We do lose some people to harvest time and stuff like that. Usually if they can get away they sure try to.” The toy run typically draws between 200 and 300 riders from across the southern part of the province with the weather also being a big factor in the turnout. “We get a lot from down south and the Assiniboia area and we’ve had people from Swift Current and a lot from Regina, a few from Weyburn,” Roney

The Toy Run is all about the kids. Riders finish at the Salvation Army Citadel where they drop off gifts for children.

said. “It really depends on the weather and if they’re into harvest. If they can get here, they really try to because it’s one of those things, it’s such a worthy cause that nobody likes to miss it.” Following the toy run, a steak night fundraiser will be held at The Park Hotel. “The money we get from that we use to buy toques, mitts and scarves and we donate them at Christmas to the Salvation Army along with our cash donation

to help with hampers and things like that,” Roney said. The toys collected through the toy run are donated to the Salvation Army immediately following the event. The toy run travels north on Main St. and then west on Thatcher Dr. before finishing at the Salvation Army citadel.

Penning policy and polling the public; Meili hits the road as new NDP leader Matthew Gourlie - Moose Jaw Express

Ryan Meili, leader of the the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party speaks to the attendees at a barbecue hosted by the Moose Jaw & District Labour Council on Wednesday, Aug. 22. After a successful campaign to becoming leader of the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party five months ago, Ryan Meili is back on the road and meeting voters. Meili is in the midst of a 20-stop tour across the province that brought him home Wednesday when the Moose Jaw & District Labour Council hosted a barbecue with the new NDP leader. “I had been touring in the leadership race, now it’s about trying to get more and more into the general public and just meeting as many people as I can and seeing what is on their minds,” Meili explained. The 43-year-old attended high school at Vanier before graduating from the College of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan and becoming MLA for Saskatoon Meewasin. Meili has been criss-crossing the province to hear the concerns of the public to help craft a platform that will resonate with voters in 2020. Two days before the Moose Jaw stop, Meili was in Kamsack where opioid abuse is a serious problem in the region. As a result, HIV rates on some of the First Nation reserves in the area are more than eight times the provincial average. “That’s one of the fascinating things about

travelling, you find what each pocket of the province has as their own specific concerns or their unique characteristics,” Meili said. “You also run into some pretty consistent themes. Even though Kamsack and Lloydminster are a province apart, a lot of the same issues are being faced -issues with the economy, with more and more businesses shutting down, more and more people out of work. We’ve seen the way in which the addition of PST to construction has really hurt local businesses.” “We’re also seeing the way that struggling economy is flowing downstream and hurting people and their health. The crystal meth explosion and the issues with addictions and related crime -- and how that’s playing out in social circumstances -- is different everywhere, but there are pretty consistent troubles.” Meili acknowledges that barbecues like the one in Moose Jaw largely play to their base, but he has also seen “people who are looking for a change and kicking the tires to see what the NDP has to offer.” The party is also trying to reach out to a broader section of communities by meeting civic leaders in every stop and holding Town Hall meetings. Meili said the NDP is looking to balance

doing their job in opposition and also starting to offer solutions to the problems the province is facing. NDP deputy leader Carla Beck, who is also the agriculture and education critic, was on hand at the barbecue, as well, to meet people and hear their concerns. “There have been big cuts that have been made to education. There are big problems in the classroom and we continue to push on that,” Meili said. “We would love to be forming government in two years, but the kids who are in classrooms right now can’t wait two years. We’re hoping this government will make better choices and we will continue to put pressure on them to do just that.” Meili wants the process of going from “opposition to proposition” to be a little more fluid. He wants to put forward their ideas for the future of the province earlier than they have in previous election cycles to give people time to learn about, digest and discuss them. “It’s a process as you go through the cycle as we get closer to an election, yes we keep our focus on the problems of the government and point out their flaws -and that’s our job,” Meili said. “More and more we will be able to articulate here’s

what we would do to improve life in rural Saskatchewan. Here’s what we’re going to do to make sure health care is better. Here’s what we’re going to do to make sure that when you send your kid to school they get the best chance to learn.” “I think we have some pretty exciting and inspiring ideas that we’re going to be putting forward.” Meili said he was cautious not to jump too far ahead, but two pillars of their platform will be the gradual increase of minimum wage up to $15/hour during their first term in office. They are also seeking to help establish a national pharmacare program. “We have the lowest minimum wage in the country. We have a situation where people are working full time and are still living in poverty. That’s hard on them and that’s a drain on the rest of society,” Meili said “Another issue that we hear a lot about is how many people are having to choose between paying the rent and buying groceries or paying for the medications they need to stay healthy. As a country, we are paying among the highest prices for medications in the world. If we had a national pharmacare program, we could drive those prices down, save money that way, but also save money and lives by treating people early for their conditions rather than later when they wind up in hospital and need more intensive services.” After Meili was elected leader on March 3, the next Mainstreet Research’s UltraPoll saw the NDP’s polling numbers take a five per cent jump. However, in the latest Mainstreet poll (with a margin of error of +/- 3.52%) from mid-July sees Premier Scott Moe and the Sask Party enjoying a 17-point lead. “To my mind where we are is that there is dissatisfaction with the Sask Party and there is more and more people who are frustrated. They don’t have the benefit of the doubt that they did have,” Meili said. “There’s a feeling out there that it is time for a change. But what the NDP hasn’t been able to do in recent years is really articulate what that change looks like. I’m not going to panic about polls a few months out from my becoming leader.”

WDM Blow off Some Steam Day gives look into steam engines Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Western Development Museum offered patrons a chance to Blow Off Some Steam on Saturday, Aug. 18th, or, at least check out some of their on-site machines that do exactly that. A steady stream of patrons made their way through a special behind-the-scenes tour to see the Case 75 steam traction engine restoration project, as well as take a ride on the recently reopened Shortline 101 railway. There was also a steam-flavoured scavenger hunt. It was all part of the WDM’s Blow Off Some Steam Day and a chance for WDM steam volunteer Rob Harkness to show off some of his pet projects – the big one being a literal 12 1/2 ton behemoth currently in the later stages of completion, namely the aforementioned Case steam engine. “It’s a work in progress and it’s taken us about two years to get to this point,� Harkness said, while showing off the early 1900s beast. “We think we have another six months or so to go, so we’re aiming for spring to have it up and running. There’s still quite a bit of work to do.� A ton of work has gone into the project, including replacement of most of the machine’s bearings, new piston and shafts installed and a complete re-painting are just as a few highlights. In fact, the re-painting was one of the more arduous tasks when it came to getting the engine show ready. “It’s amazing how difficult it is to scrape these things clean and get the paint on them; there’s 100 years of rust and grime and just cleaning it was a major job itself,� Harkness said. “But now we’re to the exciting part and putting stuff back on and seeing it starting to come together.� The next major part of the project will be installation of a new water tank and refurbishing and repairing the immense rear wheels, both of which need some welding work and crack repairs. Once that’s done, Harkness hopes to see rubber cleats installed so the machine can run on asphalt without doing damage. Once the project is completed, the engine is expected to be another interesting addition to the museum, offer-

Shortline 101 engineers Dean Redman and Don Fox chat with WDM steam volunteer Rob Harkness. ing patrons a rather unique experience – a pair of major steam-operated devices working onsite. “Having them both (the Case engine and Shortline 101) working together, I think we’d be the only museum in the province with that much steam in operation,� Harkness said.

“...now we’re to the exciting part and putting stuff back on and seeing it starting to come together.� -Steam Volunteer Rob Harkness.

As could be expected, the most popular part of the show was the K+S Potash Canada-sponsored Shortline 101. The two passenger cars on the 1914 Vulcan mini-railway engine were full much of the day as the train made its way around the newly restored quarter-mile railway track. “We moved to Moose Jaw in 1991 and we started hearing the train whistle from our backyard, and that was one of the first things we associated with Moose Jaw, that whistle and the bell,� Harkness said, adding that the recent theft of the bell was disheartening. “It was really a shame that someone stole it, it was really part of it’s character,� he said. “There are a lot of people who put in a lot of effort and a lot of resources into keeping this stuff alive, keeping things running and on track, so when something like this happens it’s disappointing.� On a whole, Harkness felt the day was a success, especially when it came to reactions to the Case project. “It’s nice to see people actually taking an interest, � he said. “We had a couple from Florida, originally from Michigan, who are trying to hit every state and every province in Canada; they were really interested in this... Then you have some of the retired farmers who can remember using these. They’ve seen them in operation in the fields and they have some great stories.�

Work continues on the 75 Case steam traction engine at the museum.

Mactac Is Forever…

I finally got around to painting and remodeling the laundry room; it only took six years! Mrs. B has been very patient. To be honest, it was not that big a priority for either of us, but with a few days of rainy weather to keep me inside I got bored and needby Dale “bushy” Bush ed a distraction. They say that painting is the 10% reward for the 90% preparation. In this case, the preparation was a memory stimulating experience to say the least. The walls were easily filled and sanded. So, when I tackled the cupboard, I wasn’t expecting a frustrating day-long ordeal. I had decided the cupboard needed a refreshing paint job, inside and out, and again, it was all about the preparation. In this case, it meant removing some old Mactac shelf lining. Judging by the design, I would guestimate this Mactac shelf liner was from the seventies. It seems the previous owner was a big fan of both wallpaper and the often poorly installed adhesive vinyl known as Mactac. As I spent a few hours in a futile effort to remove decades of old shelf liner that at one time was sticky but now a permanent part of the wooden shelf, I had recollections of Mactac from my past.



My Mother was a do-it-yourself “decorator”. Our kitchen was never safe from a new coat of paint, but after Mom discovered these new sticky vinyl rolls in the sixties, painting became ancient history. Of course, the shelves and cupboards all got the Mactac treatment. I am sure the owner of Mactac was able to buy himself a new yacht on his profits from my Mom’s purchases. We had a huge kitchen with lots of cupboards/shelving and if you include the pantry it would have been a major undertaking just to do the measuring. It wasn’t long before Mom had Mactac on not only the shelves, but the backs and sides of the cupboards, as well, so we began to worry about Mom’s new mania. At that time, there were no 12 step “recover”y (pun intended) programs available, so it was a case of family understanding and support. For a while, it seemed that Mactac was just another layer of Mom’s redecorating past. Everything was calm and serene until Mom saw Mactac’s newest design (knotty pine) at the hardware store; that was when she had a Mactac relapse. When we left for school one morning, it was tranquil and peaceful, but when we returned, it seemed like a Mactac tornado had swept through the kitchen and had hovered over the fridge for a few hours. Not only was the fridge now knotty pine but every cupboard had been coated with knotty pine Mactac. I had to check the address on the house to make

sure I was home. It seemed like an exact copy of our kitchen but in a log house. There is basically nothing wrong with Mactac, when it is used wisely and installed properly, but Mom did neither and her end-product was initially loaded with wrinkles and bubbles until she got the hang of Mactacology. It seems that the previous owner of our current house may have been in the same club as my dear Mom, because we have been removing wrinkled and bubbly Mactac and wallpaper for years…or should I say “trying” to remove old Mactac. After decades, the sticky stuff has become one with the universe and the wood it covers; removal seems impossible before I paint. I tried heat, paint remover and other methods but that old Mactac was stubborn and I was frustrated until Mrs. B came up with a solution… Mactac it!

Different look for Warriors coming out of camp

Solid defence and goaltending, offensive balance among hallmarks for Tribe in early going Randy Palmer -- Moose Jaw Express Moose Jaw Warriors general manager Alan Millar put together a bit of a different look when it came to this year’s edition of the Tribe through last week’s training camp. The 2017-18 edition of the Warriors was an offensive powerhouse, unlike any the team had seen since the mid80s, with two players breaking the 100-point barrier, another coming within two points of the mark and a fourth almost certain to have hit triple digits if not for injuries and national team duties. This year, it’s almost the opposite. The Tribe feature a defensive corps that will likely be the envy of the league, anchored by the likes of NHL draft picks Josh Brook and Jett Woo alongside Brandon Schuldhaus and Matthew Benson. Offensively, it’s all about balance. Justin Almeida returns after a 43-goal, 98-point campaign and is the only returnee with more than 50 points. But training camp showed that players have improved, newcomers have made an impact and Millar is optimistic things could be very interesting for the Tribe this season. “Camps been good, it’s been very competitive, all four games here in main camp have been hard games and close games,” he said. “We’ve been really pleased with a number of our returning guys, they worked hard in the off season and I think a lot of them know that there are new and bigger opportunities with the club.” The one guarantee is that youth will be served – after a 19-year-old-loaded squad last season, look for a lot more kids getting their chance this time around.

“We’re going to be younger, but I think our depth will be good, I think we’ll be competitive,” Millar said. “We’re not going to score as naturally as we did a year ago with (Brayden) Burke and (Jayden) Halbgewachs and (Brett) Howden, but I think we’ll play a solid 200-foot game and the games will be a bit tighter, but we’re not going to give up a lot in our own zone and that’s how we have to play.” Millar and his coaching staff led by bench boss Tim Hunter didn’t come into this season blind – it’s all a part of the cycle and the process of the Western Hockey League, and the preparation has been going on for quite some time. “You build your teams two, three and four years out, and we’re going through the process drafting, listing and signing players,” Millar said. “We have returning guys who are expected to step up and we have younger players who are coming in and trying to capitalize on those opportunities. “We’ve had a pretty clear picture what our team was going to look like for awhile, it’s just a matter of who’s going to perform, earn better opportunities, and there’s still some competition for them to earn better spots in the line-up.” Camp concluded with the Black-White intrasquad game on Sunday afternoon, with Team Black taking a 6-4 win. Brayden Tracey, Danill Stepanov, Levi Thiessen, Tyler Smithies, Kade Runke and Tristan Langan scored for Team White; Nicholas Bowman, Calder Anderson, Justin Almeida and Cameron Sterling for Team Black.

Team White’s Tyler Smithies scores on Team Black’s Brett Mirwald during the Moose Jaw Warriors intrasquad game. Jackson Berry and Ethan Fitzgerald split goaltending duties for White; Adam Evanoff and Brett Mirwald for Black. The Warriors are back in action this weekend at the Regina Pats pre-season tournament.

Rider alumni event would love more local support Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express The annual Saskatchewan Roughrider Alumni Whiskey and Wine Festival held in Moose Jaw has always been successful, raising money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Moose Jaw. This year, the organizers would love to see it be a local success. “Last year we had roughly 140 guests that attended. This year we want to reach capacity, which is 175 for Grant Hall,” said Ash Noureldin, executive director Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina & Area. “The thing that we really want to emphasize is that 30 people from Moose Jaw were in attendance last year, whereas the other 110 were from Regina. “A lot of people seem to think that this is an event for Regina folks. Whereas, it’s actually for Moose Jaw and the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Moose Jaw. The money raised in Moose Jaw stays in Moose Jaw.” The sixth edition of the event will be held at the Grant Hall Hotel on Saturday, Oct. 20 beginning at 7:00 p.m. The evening features a selection of wine and whiskey, plus food pairings prepared by the executive chef at Grant Hall. The event also allows attendees to meet a number of Riders alumni over the course of the evening. The Riders are in Calgary to face the Stampeders in CFL play that night, but the game will be available to watch on television at the venue, so fans won’t miss any of the action. The organizers are working on arranging a car service for Moose Jaw residents to get safely to-and-from the event. Attendees from Regina can make use of a bus service toand-from Chop Steakhouse & Bar in Regina. There will be a discounted rate available at the Grant Hall Hotel for anyone who is interested in spending the night. While the organizers do a great job of removing any barriers out-of-towners may have to attend, Noureldin would like to see it truly become a Moose Jaw event. “As opposed to constantly taking people from Regina to go to Moose Jaw for an event, I would like to reverse those numbers. Have maybe 30 people from Regina coming and over 100 people from Moose Jaw going,” Noureldin said. “Since we resumed services (in Moose Jaw) in 2016, it has been our only actual eventbased fundraiser in Moose Jaw.” It is obviously an important fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Moose Jaw, but Noureldin notes that the fundraiser is important beyond the money it brings in. “Fundraising has two primary objectives: to raise money, one, but two, the message,” Noureldin said. “We want to broadcast our message that we’re back in Moose Jaw and not only are we back, but we’re making a tremendous impact on the youth that we’re serving there. “The other message is that, as a result of the youth that we’re serving, we’re actually getting an even higher demand for more kids that need or want service. When we meet demand, nothing but good things happen, but it also causes the demand to increase.” Tickets are $150 each and are available at the Roughriders’ ticket office or online at https://oss.ticketmaster.com/aps/saskriders/EN/link/buy/details/18wine.

Registration open for Carl Jorgenson tourney Unique Par-27 charity event still has plenty of spots remaining




Moose Jaw Express Staff Over the years, players from all three local golf courses and beyond would be lined up to register for the Carl Jorgenson Golf Tournament at the Lynbrook Golf and Country Club. Filling the draw was firstcome first-serve and usually took about 40 minutes to come to a close. Today, the event remains popular but not quite like days of the past. “We’ll still fill the field but it’ll be a lot closer to the deadline than back then,” said Lynbrook men’s club captain Maurice Schmidt about this year’s tournament, set for Sept. 8-9. “And the competition is always really good.” The popularity of the event stems from the unique par-27 format. Players play three shots each from three distances: 150 yards, 100 yards and 50 yards. The tournament is a modified triple knock-out match-play, guaranteeing each player three matches. Individual entry is $75 and includes a shirt and two supper tickets. Anyone interested in signing up can contact the Lynbrook at 306-692-2838. Jorgenson was a long-time Lynbrook member who passed away due to cancer. All proceeds from the event go to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Soap box racers bring the speed to Moose Jaw Randy Palmer -- Moose Jaw Express

Summer Rose (left) and Daeton Ratzlaff had an exceptionally close race in the first round of Senior division action. Soap Box Derby racer Aiden “The Slayer” Jahnke, is an 11-year-old competitor from Swift Current that was a busy man in the pits between races during the Moose Jaw Soap Box Racing Association meet on Alder Avenue on Aug. 19th. He diligently worked on the wheels and axles of his car, making sure they rolled as smoothly as possible for the races. “On the blue side, I kept close to the pylons and let it go out and then come back in to use the hill, then on the red side I just go as straight as I can because it’s not as bumpy,” he explained. “You just have to more or less keep it straight and not hit bumps and lose speed.” That work and strategy paid off –

Jahnke would go on to first place in the Senior division with an undefeated run through the 13-car draw. Not bad for a driver in only his third season, and second as a senior competitor. “It’s a lot of fun,” he said. “We get to come out and race and meet people and win prizes and it’s a really good time.” That’s the whole idea behind the day of racing, with competition running from morning until early evening. “It went really well; we did a triple elimination and that made the day a little bit longer because we had extra racers, but everyone seemed to have fun and that’s the most important thing,” said event organizer Heather Carle. “There’s only two big races this


It’s all manual work loading a car into the starting blocks... year, in Swift Current during the Father’s Day weekend and this one, so we wanted to get them as many races and as many times down the hill as we could.” A total of 24 competitors took part this year, 13 seniors and 11 juniors, with the top eight in each division receiving a trophy and prize. Awards were also given out in Sportsmanship, Grease Monkey and Hard Luck categories. The majority of cars that raced on the weekend are owned by the Moose Jaw association, with the Junior cars featuring a centre-seat design and Senior vehicles a sleeker laid-back format for drivers. All cars are built to exact size and weight specifications, with the axles and wheels purchased from All-American Soap Box Derby-approved vendors. Those specifications ensure an even playing field, with further tweaks limited to the kind of work Jahnke was performing in the pits – spraying things down with brake cleaner and oil-based lubricants. The standardized format also ensures that the cars fit on the ramps and can be transported more easily. Race day is a long one – set-up on the Alder Avenue hill started at 7 a.m. and tear-down finished around 10 p.m. -- and is only part of the whole program. Racers, parents and volunteers gathered for a barbecue on Saturday night, with the evening also acting as the pre-race meeting and car inspection. All said-and-done, it costs around $4,000 to hold a soap box derby race of this scope. “We’re a non-profit so we have to get everything from sponsors,” Carle said. “We were really fortunate this year to have some good ones help us out with a lot of things.” The Associated Canadian Travellers/ United Commercial Travellers and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers were the two major sponsors this year, while Home Hardware donated supplies to repaint the ramps. Panda Tire and Auto, Peavy Mart, Family Pizza, Boh’s Cycle and New Board Shop all sponsored trophies and prizes; Fellinger’s Meats, Hub’s Meat Market and Maple Leaf Bakery supplied food for the barbecue. “It’s a long day and a lot of set up and behind-the-scenes work, but it’s a lot of fun for the kids and that’s great,”

Carle said. “When you see how much fun they’re having racing, it’s all worth it.” The list of event winners is as follows Junior Division 1st place - Kaleb Snyder (Swift Current) sponsored by Standard Motors 2nd place - Waylon Ratzlaff (Swift Current) sponsored by Taco Time 3rd place - Easton Perrault (Regina) 4th place - Danica Finlay (Regina) sponsored by IBEW, Local 2067 5th place - Elliot Jahnke (Swift Current) sponsored by Can-Am Geomatics 6th place - Jake Wiebe (Swift Current) sponsored by Doctor Polish and Shine Detailing 7th place - Hayden Perrault “The Wacky Watermelon” (Regina) 8th place - Sophia Laverdiere(Swift Current) sponsored by PDQ Autobody Sportsmanship - #473 Madeline Mead (Ogema) Grease Monkey - #451 Matthew Ivey (Regina) Hard Luck - #222 Jemma Maxom (Ogema) Senior Division 1st place - Aiden Jahnke (Swift Current) sponsored by Bumper to Bumper 2nd place - Joshua Laverdiere (Swift Current) sponsored by S3 Enterprises 3rd place - Daeton Ratzlaff (Swift Current) sponsored by Home Hardware 4th place - Summer Rose (Medicine Hat) sponsored by Octane Autobody 5th place - Jacob Dickson (Swift Current) sponsored by Auto-Thrill 6th place - Serenity Laverdiere (Swift Current) sponsored by Acklands Grainger 7th place - Nicole Pelletier (Swift Current) sponsored by TRP Services Sportsmanship - #207 Grease Monkey - Ayden Snyder (Swift Current) sponsored by Legault Agro Hard Luck - Lucas Ivey Other participants - Caeden Ivey (Regina), Colten Koethler (Swift Current)

Milltek - Investing in Our Community

Cobras building a cheer community Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Cobra Cheerleading is a big believer in community. The Cobras local cheerleading club recently held an open house to kick-off their fall season and to welcome the community into their home gym. “We wanted to have this open gym to kick-off the season and welcome people back,” said Shay Schier, president of Moose Jaw Cobra Cheerleading. “We thought we would do this and get some people out and get some of our Cobras back into the gym to see each other. A lot of them become friends over the season and so they see each other over the summer, but it’s nice to get them all back into the gym and hanging out as a team.” The Cobras range in age from 3-18 and demonstrated some cheer elements and techniques, while dozens of young boys and girls tried out the floor and some of the equipment in the gym. “It’s amazing. I really didn’t think this many people would turn out,” Schier said. “We have 200 hot dogs and I thought we would have 160 left, but now I’m thinking we won’t have any left. This is perfect. It’s nice to have all of these people back in the gym again.” Gracy Bourdages started cheering with her friend Hope Brenner seven years ago and both are now coaches with Cobra. Bourdages has moved on to a high-level team in Regina to compete, but the 16-year-old Grade 11 student at Vanier is happy to give back to the club where she started. “It’s really like a family,” Bourdages said. “It’s like a home away from home. If anything is wrong, when you go to cheer it all goes away and you know it will be OK.” The club wants to be a place where the athletes lift each other up -- both literally and figuratively. Bourdages believes she was fortunate to find a community like the Cobras to act as a second home and family during her teens years. “The coaches are all really supportive and can help you through anything -- not just in cheer, but on a day-to-day

Two members of Moose Jaw Cobra Cheerleading tumble.

Members of Moose Jaw Cobra Cheerleading perform a pyramid. life basis,” Bourdages said. “You’re always supported when you come to cheer. As a young girl life can throw curveballs at you, so it’s really easy to get a break from everything in the outside world.” Entering their eighth season, the Cobras are Moose Jaw’s only not-for-profit cheer club and they want to increasingly be out in the community and giving back to the community that is supporting them in turn. “The intent here is to not just develop these athletes -which is our main focus -- but to grow all of us as better people and a better community,” Schier said. “It’s time to bring it back to the community. We’ve done the Terry Fox Run and we’re going to do that again this year and we want to find other ways to help and give back to the community.” The Cobras season runs from September to April with athletes learning skills and routines for the first half of the season before heading into competition at the start of the new year. They currently have more than 60 athletes registered for this coming season but are slightly down overall compared to a year ago. They are hoping that the strong turnout to their open house may reverse that. For the athletes that just do tumbling, there will be a recreational program for the first time this year. Those rec athletes will do their finale at the club’s own in-house extravaganza competition. The competitive athletes attend 2-6 competitions a year depending on their age groups. The Cobras compete mostly within the province, but some of their teams will be competing in Edmonton this year. The gym is located at 1350 Caribou St. E., an industrial building they have nicknamed the Snake Pit. It has a new spectator mezzanine that will be open for the first time

this season. The new facility allows them enough space to do practice stunts like a basket toss -- where an athlete is thrown into the air and caught. “This is a great facility for us,” Schier said. “It’s nice to have a home.” The club also has a full-size competition spring cheer competition floor. “This is what competitions are held on. We actually rent our mats out to a couple of the Regina competitions; that’s huge. Not a lot of places have that,” Schier said. Competitive cheerleading continues to grow. In December of 2016, the International Olympic Committee granted cheerleading provisional status and put it on the path for possible inclusion in the 2024 Olympics in Paris. Anyone interested in registering for the upcoming cheer season can visit the club’s website at http://moosejawcobracheer.ca.

Humboldt Broncos’ president steps down from executive; cites family, career HUMBOLDT, Sask. _ The man who became the public face of the Humboldt Broncos in the days after the hockey team’s bus crashed in the spring has stepped down as president of the organization. Kevin Garinger told a club board meeting on Tuesday that he would not be seeking re-election as its president. Garinger says he wants to devote more time to his family, his job as CEO and director of education with Saskatchewan’s Horizon School Division and a doctorate he’s pursing in educational leadership. The outgoing president says he will con-

tinue to sit on the board and provide support and guidance for the incoming president, Jamie Brockman. Sixteen people were killed, and 13 others were injured in April’s collision involving a semi-trailer truck at a highway intersection northeast of Saskatoon. Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, a 29-year-old Calgary resident, is facing 16 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and 13 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily injury. © 2018 The Canadian Press


New European satellite will measure global wind speeds BERLIN _ The European Space Agency is preparing to launch the first satellite that will directly measure wind speeds around the world in what scientists hope will improve weather forecasts. The Aeolus probe, named after the keeper of the winds in Greek mythology, is scheduled to lift off late Wednesday aboard a Vega rocket from a spaceport in French Guiana. The satellite is equipped with a Doppler lidar _ nicknamed Aladin _ that uses pulses of light to detect the movement of tiny particles in the air. The data can be used to calculate wind speeds, a process that’s currently done from the ground or, indirectly, by observing waves and clouds from planes or space. The European Space Agency says real-time wind measurements will make weather and climate predictions more accurate. © 2018 The Canadian Press

VANCOUVER _ Winemakers can only hope the scent of smoke that’s in the air across British Columbia from wildfires won’t swirl in the glass once this year’s vintages have been bottled. Smoke-shrouded grapes can give an ashy, bitter flavour to wine and tests have been developed to help growers assess the quality of their grapes, said researcher Matt Noestheden, a PhD student at the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna. ``For this season, time will tell. If I could (predict the quality) I would be a rich man,’’ he said in a telephone interview. ``We are currently working this year on ways that might be able to protect the grapes, but there is nothing that grape growers can do that will definitely protect the grapes.’’ Red wine grapes, such as the Pinot Noir variety that is planted widely in the Okanagan, change colour from green to red in a process known as veraison. That process is underway now in the region, Noestheden said, adding that wineries dodged any danger last year because smoke from wildfires happened early in the growing season and not as the grapes were changing colour. ``That two- to three-week period from full veraison until a couple of weeks after that is where the grapes seem to be the most susceptible to the problem,’’ he added. The B.C. government’s air quality health index, which includes a measurement of particulate matter, listed the Okanagan as moderate on Tuesday but the rating was expected to climb to high by Wednesday. Bulletins warning of smoky skies from

Environment Canada said communities in the Interior of B.C. would likely see further deterioration in air quality through the week as westerly winds are forecast to blow wildfire smoke into the region. Noestheden is working with Okanagan-based Supra Research and Development to identify chemical markers for smoke taint and he said wineries from B.C. to California are waiting for the outcome. He doubted Ontario wineries would be affected by wildfire smoke in that province. ``They don’t get the quantity of smoke that we do,’’ he said. The tests developed with Supra research are being applied in field trials and the findings could offer solutions for grape growers in regions where wildfire smoke lingers. ``Now we feel that we can understand the chemistry enough that we can start to think about ways to insulate the grapes in the field,’’ said Noestheden. ``We are also looking at ways that winemakers can augment their fermentation to mitigate the impact that the smoke might have on the final taste and aroma of that particular wine.’’ The best solution this year for anxious winemakers is to make and sip a small batch of wine immediately after the grapes are harvested, he said. ``We are trying to push that timeline further back so winemakers can plan their fermentations accordingly, but right now the best advice is to make the wine and taste it.’’ © 2018 The Canadian Press

Rambler Park playoffs unkind to local teams Randy Palmer -- Moose Jaw Express

The Ramber Park Fastball League playoffs started out hopefully for teams from Moose Jaw but came to a disappointing end last week. The Moose Jaw Giants took an 11-0 win over the Alpha Construction Hawks in the opening game of the

league quarter-final in Regina but were unable to keep things going in Game 2 at Memorial Field, dropping a 12-2 decision. Then, with the season on the line, the Giants couldn’t contain the Hawks’ red-hot bats, dropping an 8-2 decision at Kaplan Field.

Alpha Construction kept things rolling right along when they faced the regular-season first place Moose Jaw Canadians in Game 1 of the semifinal on Aug. 21 at Memorial Field, rolling to an 11-0 win. Game 2 was far closer, but the Hawks couldn’t be stopped,

squeaking out a 3-2 win in Regina. Alpha Construction now advances to the league final where they’ll face the Bulyea Rustlers, who defeated Standing Buffalo in two games in the other semifinal.

Warriors goaltending scene solid Veterans Evanoff, Salmond among group vying for spots on team Randy Palmer -- Moose Jaw Express Heading into the off-season, the Moose Jaw Warriors found themselves in a rather enviable position when it came to their goaltending situation. Most teams in the league would be more than happy pairing a heavily experienced and battle-tested 20-year-old veteran with an 18-year-old future standout. And while that remained the situation heading into training camp last week, things were far from what transpired. The Warriors announced days before camp was to open that overage starter Brody Willms was battling a major hip injury, the kind that could be crippling for life, and was to undergo the kind of surgery that would cause him to miss the entire 2018-19 season. That left second-year veteran Adam Evanoff as the most experienced goaltender in the Tribe’s ranks as he came off a full season of playing back-up behind Willms. Prior to camp, Warriors general manager Alan Millar opted to bring in a bit more experience, picking up 20-year-old Brodan Salmond after he was waved by

the Kelowna Rockets during the summer. So, things are the same for the Warriors between the pipes, and also radically different. It’s all led to an opportunity that Evanoff is looking forward to. “I think this year it’s a different mentality coming into camp, I’m just trying to prove Moose Jaw Warriors goaltender Adam Evanoff turns aside a shot during the Black-White that the things I started last year,” Evanoff intrasquad game. said. “Coming into camp in shape was a big thing for me over the summer and under his belt at the time of talking to the on the ice as assistants during the rookie my goals area little bit different this year, Express – but was also looking forward camp goaltending session – was part and I’m not here trying to prove myself, I’m to showing his skills and the competition parcel with his increased role on the team. “I came here knowing I’m 18 and that’s here to play games and win games for the ahead. “I think that’s always healthy, it pushes the age you really want to get started in team.” you and makes you better and it’s somethis league,” he said. “So I knew I was Doing so without Willms around had thing I’ve been through a couple times going to battle for a position here whethcome as a disappointing surprise. er Brodie was here or not.

Canada’s cattle producers tightening their belts as drought diminishes pastures By Kelly Geraldine Malone - THE CANADIAN PRESS

Cattle producers on the Prairies are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst as an ongoing drought continues to diminish pastures. ``If it’s not a make-or-break issue for (farmers) financially, for some it may be a make-or-break issue for them emotionally,’’ said Charlie Christie, chairman of the Alberta Beef Producers. ``It’s a stressful thing.’’ Last year’s season ended extremely dry and there wasn’t enough snow to increase moisture levels. The spring was long, cold and dry, leaving little growth to feed cattle populations. Many parts of Alberta remained dry this summer, so farmers started to buy feed they usually grow and costs skyrocketed. While producers are hoping for rain, not only for this year but to prepare the ground for next, they are also having to make tough decisions as they watch barley yields and cereal crops which will make up their winter feeds. They are bringing cows home faster, pulling calves from their mothers sooner and putting calves on the market.

Some ranchers are already making the choice to sell cows to feedlots to reduce the overall herd. The beef producers group is monitoring feed stocks for the next couple of weeks before deciding whether to ask the government for assistance. Across the boundary in Saskatchewan, Agriculture Minister David Marit said higher hay prices are making it harder to get adequate feed. ``As a result, we are anticipating some producers may have no choice but to liquidate animals from their herds,’’ Marit said in an emailed statement. ``Cattle producers in these dry areas have approached the ministry requesting support to help them tackle these challenging conditions.’’ Saskatchewan has reached out to Ottawa requesting the federal government activate its livestock tax deferral now to help producers in affected areas. The deferral allows farmers who sell part of their breeding herd due to drought or flooding to defer a portion of sale proceeds to the following year. On his property near Gull Lake, Rick Toney of the Sas-

katchewan Cattlemen’s Association said some producers are deciding whether to move cows north to the few pockets which did get rain or take the hit of bringing expensive feed into their areas. That cost is just too much for some. ``What are the economics here? There’s a lot of people that are looking to sell off 40 per cent, 60 per cent or their entire herd. Cattle are coming to market,’’ he said. Toney said current conditions have many producers worried. Producers in Manitoba have already started contacting the province about low feed stocks, said Brian Lemon, general manager with the Manitoba Beef Producers. However, they haven’t asked for assistance yet. Lemon said prices for any available feed are becoming too high for cattle producers, who can’t pass the cost along. And at some point there just won’t be any feed available. © 2018 The Canadian Press


Carlsbad Caverns’ 500K bats face threat of deadly syndrome CARLSBAD, N.M. _ The half a million bats that call Carlsbad Caverns National Park home could face the threat of the deadly white nose syndrome. Federal agencies have mobilized in recent weeks to combat a microscopic organism that could potentially kill off thousands of the Mexican free-tailed bats that make the national park famous, the Carlsbad Current Argus reports. White nose syndrome was found in bat populations in states across the country,

with the closest discovery in Oklahoma and Texas. It’s named for a white, fuzzy growth that develops on the nose, ears and wings of infected bats. The fungal infection grows in the bats’ skin tissues, rousing them from hibernation repeatedly, which forces the bats to consume winter fat stores and starve to death before awakening in the spring, according to a report from Bat Conservation International, an Austin, Texas-based or-

ganization dedicated to conserving all bat species. Evidence of white nose syndrome was discovered in New Mexico soil samples and samples of bat dung last spring, but further testing this month determined it was not yet in the state. White nose syndrome was first discovered in a single New York cave in 2007, and has since killed millions of bats. The symptoms were found in 33 U.S. states and seven Canadian provinces,

moving as far west as Washington state. If the syndrome makes it to the Carlsbad Caverns, Neighbor said the impact could be devastating to the local bat populations, and negatively impact Carlsbad’s tourism industry. Many visitors travel to the national park to watch the renowned bat flights in and out of the cave. Information from: Carlsbad Current-Argus, http://www.currentargus.com/ © 2018 The Canadian Press

How attending Naturopathic camp at Bastyr University changed my perspective Lyudmila Tomas

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Give Me Five

I just came back from an amazing Naturopathic camp at Bastyr University, located in Kenmore, WA. The purpose of the camp was to allow prospective students to learn about a Naturopathic career. We started the day with yoga exercises at the camp, followed by a healthy breakfast and then, as real students, lectures about different health issues: celiac disease, cancer, skin issues, and of course, natural treatments for these diseases. The organizers of this unique camp (that I would rather call a conference) gave us an opportunity to experience being first, second, third, and fourth year students during just one week! As a team, we brainstormed real cases and came up with ideas regarding how to help clients; sometimes we discussed unique cases and offered unique ideas. I felt as if almost any issue could be resolved at Bastyr University clinic. People come to the university clinic as the last resource to resolve their issues, and I felt that it was always able to find an answer. Naturopathic doctors are considered to be primary care providers in Washington state. Most NDs there specialize on a particular health issue, such as cancer treatment, women’s health, dermatology, physical therapy, and even counseling. In addition to our academic experience, we also played ping-pong and volleyball with professors and students, got free massage treatments, watched a movie on campus, and enjoyed the beautiful nature surrounding Bastyr University. When I was telling my friends a few years ago that I want to be a Naturopathic Doctor, they looked at me .. as if I were very unrealistic. I have always wanted to be a doctor, but my parents, who worked as engineers, influenced my decision to become an engineer. When I came to Canada, I was a bit disappointed with some aspects of the healthcare system. For example, I didn’t feel that medical doctors spent enough time with their patients, unless they were booked for a full medical appointment, and the doctors would never suggest natural treatments. I learned later that there are Naturopathic Doctors in Canada who do spend enough time with their patients and suggest natural treatments. I am originally from Russia. Over there, medical doctors will suggest natural treatments if they believe that it will help the patient. What could be simpler than drinking half a glass of warm milk and half a glass of mineral water mixed together to help with a cough? I grew up in Altai region in Russia that is very close to China, and we have many healthy herbs naturally growing over there. My mom, who worked as a mechanical engineer, knew all those herbs and, I would say, was basically Lorem ipsum

an herbalist finding correct herbs for me and my brother to treat illnesses. I also have numerous doctors and nurses in my big family, and all of them are familiar with natural treatments. What did I learn at this camp? One thing I learned is that nature itself is very healing. I learned that my idea to become a Naturopathic Doctor is not crazy. Since I have an Engineering Degree from Russia, I just need to take a few other pre-requisite courses and I can get in to study for this amazing profession. It is not impossible! We were told that people develop life-long friendships at Bastyr University and that everybody supports each other. I felt that even during this short Naturopathic camp all of us became a part of a big family. Moose Jaw has four Naturopathic Doctors in Moose Jaw right now, and I feel that all of them are good and unique. I have had the chance to personally meet with all of them: Dr. Douglas Amell, N.D., is the founding naturopathic doctor of the Moose Jaw Naturopathic Clinic. He has been in practice since 1998 and has a very good reputation; he has also written many scientific articles. Dr. Joel Guillemin, N.D., joined the practice in the spring of 2017 and has special added interest in weight management, acupuncture, and musculoskeletal issues, as well as intravenous nutrient treatments for chronic disease, including but not limited to cancer, fibromyalgia, and different forms of chronic pain. (moosejawnaturopathicclinic.ca). Dr. Lynn Chiasson stated that she deals with any health issues with more focus on gastrointestinal problems. Dr. Richelle Galay identified that her special focus is in women and children. She is also the only Naturopathic Doctor available on Saturdays. After attending this camp and learning about the benefits of natural treatments, I feel as though my goal is to promote natural alternatives. I am also president of the Russian Association in Moose Jaw. We are tentatively planning to have a meeting with a few Naturopathic Doctors in Moose Jaw on September 14 at 4 p.m. at the Newcomer Welcome Centre. Everyone is welcome to come to this meeting.

Do you remember that Minute Rice commercial back in the 80’s with Ann B. Davis... “Long grain rice that’s ready in five minutes?” I was raised in the 70’s and 80’s when Minute Rice was making its presence known on grocery shelves. Who knew that years later, the push to make a quick meal has become even more pressurized? The marketers already knew back then that the five minute slogan would be an attention-getter; promising short meal time preparation. Have you ever given the thought to the power of five minutes? Five minutes may seem miniscule in a day but did you know there are 288 five minute increments in a 24 hour day? So, if one was to get the suggested 8 hours of sleep, let’s cut that back to 192 five minute increments in our waking day. This suggests that we have almost 200 segments of five minutes in our day that we could accomplish many tasks ahead. What are some of those tasks that we can accomplish in five minute increments? Did you know there are many household chores that would only take a short period of time such as emptying the dishwasher, filling the dishwasher, making coffee, sweeping the kitchen floor, cleaning the toilet/sink, folding a load of clothes (5-10 minutes), put away clothes, pay a few bills, start a loaf in the auto baker machine, take out the trash, vacuum the porch, make the bed, wash a window or polish a mirror and I guess we shouldn’t forget making minute rice in five minutes.... Other daily duties could include read a devotional or the Bible, pray, watch a short inspirational podcast, call or text a friend with encouragement, sweep the garage, tidy up the work bench in the garage, cut up fruit or veggies for the next day’s meal or bag lunch, go through a pile of papers on the desk or water the plants. What are some of these tasks that you put off because you don’t feel you have time? We can overcome some of those dreaded jobs that hang over our heads when we expose the length of time in reality it takes to complete the tasks. What about that dreaded laundry that never seems done? Or the dishwasher that is forever full? If we could see in five-minute segments how long some of these tasks could be accomplished, I’m confident we wouldn’t be so overwhelmed! The Word of God warns us not to despise the small; “Do not despise these small beginnings...” (Zechariah 4:10). In what kinds of ways are we wasting our day? If we can attack some of these small chores that seem to hang over our heads, our homes will run more efficiently and peaceful! Just think what it would be like if you spent five minutes picking out your clothes (or picking UP your clothes) the night before... with all the clothes laundered and put in place. Just think about the peace in your home when you come home from work knowing your dishwasher is empty, ready to receive the evening’s dishes... or grabbing that pot of potatoes from the fridge to put on to boil that you peeled that morning? We are designed to live a life of order yet many times we allow small tasks to pile up and overwhelm us to the point of being ineffective and unorganized. Just taking a few minutes to attack those five-minute tasks can be the difference of war or peace in a home! Don’t wait for the big time spans to accomplish these minor chores!

Popular BC dance teacher who started career in Moose Jaw passes away


Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows News; August 1st, 2018

Peggy Peat, who lived for a short time in Moose Jaw in the early 1950s, passed away July 28th in Maple Ridge, BC at the age of 90 years. She was a friend of Doris Sitter who owned and operated the Doris Sitter School of Dance. Peat grew up with a love of dance and came by it honestly; her father was an entertainer of the troops during WWI. Peat met her husband David Watson Peat when the Canadian soldier was stationed overseas. She and her husband lived in England until he was shipped back to Canada, settling in Palmer, Saskatchewan. Shortly thereafter, they moved to Moose Jaw where she became a dance teacher for Doris Sitter’s Dance School, making 65 cents an hour. In 1950 she opened her first dance school in the basement of their house called Sunshine Dance School. On Saturdays, she also taught dance at the Grant Hall Hotel. Peat moved to Maple Ride, BC where she started Peggy Peat School of Dance in 1970. It was in Maple Ridge that Peat made her mark in the dance world and made significant contributions to teaching dance and mentoring. She is remembered as being passionate about dancing and influencing generations of young dancers.

Recently comments were made to the Express wondering why the community is never notified by the City of Moose Jaw of work being done on city streets or the public never hears about street closures, etc. Unfortunately, our response has to reflect the fact that the City of Moose Jaw seems to not care that the whole community is abreast of these situations well in advance, as we Joan Ritchie as a media outlet never reEDITOR ceive notifications more than the day of, or at best, a day or two in advance from their communications department. Why is it that communications are stunted in getting to the public; not our fault by any means. If we would receive proper notifications in advance, we would certainly let you the people know in advance, too. I have a few current city notifications below that I have cut and pasted into this column to show you what I mean. With the first one, there was some confusion in the first place of what day the work was starting – Aug 21st or 31st? (Seems it was to be Tues, August 21st because August 31st isn’t a Tues.) “August 17, 2018 August 21 Road Restrictions for Elm Tree Removal Moose Jaw – The City of Moose Jaw advises that the 200 Block of Athabasca Street East will be closed to traffic Tuesday, August 31 from 7:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. in order for City crews to remove an elm tree infected with Dutch Elm disease. Traffic signage and barricading will be in place to accommodate this disruption. Drivers are encouraged to use caution in the area and obey all posted signs and speed limits.” “August 17, 2018 Main St. N. Resurfacing Begins August 20, 2018 Moose Jaw – The City of Moose Jaw continues to execute its 2018 Road Rehabilitation Program. Beginning August 20, work will begin on the southbound lanes of Main St. North from Ominica St. W. to High St. W., with milling then re-application of hot asphalt (repair in some places may be needed). The work will be completed in between August 20- August 23, 2018 – weather permitting: During the construction period, Main St. will not be accessible from Fairford St. West. Traffic signage and barricading will be in place to accommodate this disruption. Drivers and pedestrians are encouraged to use caution in the area and to obey all posted detours and signs.” “Tue, August 21st, 2018 9:54am The City of Moose Jaw advises that the Sanitary Landfill will be temporarily closed on two separate occasions today (August 21, 2018). Due to surveying work, the landfill will be closed between 10am-noon, and 3pm-5pm today. The City apologizes for any inconvenience.” Why is it that it has to come to making a big deal of issues like this to possibly propagate change? To get earlier notifications, our publisher has relayed our frustrations directly to the City Communications Department a number of times already with no avail. It seems in many matters, communications don’t seem to be a strong point for the city; is everything there under a shroud of secrecy?

Wedding barn


To get to the cousin’s wedding in Wynyard, we drove a different route, avoiding long weekend traffic and seeing different landscapes. The drive-up Highway Two and across Highway 15 at Nokomis was uneventful. Crops kept looking better fur- Farm building ther north and east. Farmers said rains were variable with crops not likely as good as they look. Locals were surprised crops had advanced so fast. On Highway 15, an old black convertible with a grey-haired driver sped by us. Minutes later we spotted a row of interesting old machines in a field just off the road. My partner was interested in a rusty old blue truck. My attention was on a little yellow pony tractor and a small faded red row crop tractor attached to an old horse-drawn hay rake. We slowed down for a better look when we saw the black convertible parked near the row. “I don’t want to see old equipment like that,” said my partner as she drove away. On driving into Wynyard, a large vacant two-storey concrete block structure greets visitors. A for sale sign indicates there is 43,000 square feet of space in the building. I ask the motel owner what the building was used for. “It’s been for sale so long I can’t remember,” was the response. Later we learn it was a bottling plant, now

listed at $2.6 million. We noticed a large building occupied by Karnalyte Resources. Karnalyte has plans for a 650,000 tonne per year potash mine also producing magnesium. Potash prices currently don’t support construction, so the company has Screeching turned attention to building a small nitrogen fertilizer plant servicing independent dealers in central Saskatchewan. After supper we drove around the neat town, 1,900 people with a new arena under construction. The Quill Lakes next to town are an international migratory bird stop with large populations of local birds on the salt lake. We found the bird interpretive centre next to the town hall. It being after supper, the centre was closed, as expected. A sign on the door told visitors to get service at the town office. The same sign posted town office hours — 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. Not much use on a long weekend. Birding trails along the lake are in disarray. Flooding that turned the Quill Lakes into one big lake and covered 60,000 acres of farmland damaged the trails. We drove north on the road once separating the lakes. An angry hawk screeched fiercely at us from a fence post. Our drive separated a doe from its Bambi. We hoped they got together soon. The wedding on a well-kept family homestead went nicely.

Post-harvest weed control can be effectively achieved through the proper use of glyphosate. In the cooler fall temperatures, there is a downward movement of nutrient reserves to the root and storage tissues of perennial weeds, ensuring these plants have a good start in the spring. It is best to take care of the perennial weeds during the fall if one is planning on seeding less competitive crops such as flax or lentils the upcoming year. Post-harvest glyphosate application in September provides a more effective control of perennial seedlings that had the chance to germinate over the summer. Timing is critical for this application and spraying should be delayed until weeds regrow and develop new leaves. This should also be done before a frost occurs and kills these new weeds. Glyphosate gets trans-located within the plant with the sugars, killing the growing parts of the plant; however, if the tissue is damaged during the application, the herbicide will not be successfully trans-located to the weed’s storage roots and crown. A careful assessment of your field conditions is necessary by making sure that crop residues are evenly spread. None of the target weeds should be covered, as this may reduce herbicide uptake by the plant. If weed leaves are brown or yellowing, glyphosate will not be very effective. It is advised to spray during sunny days, either late in the morning or early in

the afternoon for best glyphosate action. Specific recommendations for certain perennial weeds follow: Canada Thistle Due to this year’s dry conditions, Canada thistle will most likely be the problem weed during harvest. Canada thistle has the ability to produce roots and shoots that eventually grow into new plants; therefore killing the upper part of the plant is ineffective. Glyphosate translocates into the plant’s root system, reducing its ability to reproduce. For good Canada thistle control make sure that the plant consists of at least three to four healthy leaves. Dandelion In October the dandelion plants may become dormant, therefore September application is key. Early spring emergence of dandelions can cause poor soil drying and seedbed conditions, and will therefore require higher rates of herbicide application. In which case, a post-harvest glyphosate option is more effective, preventing the plants from emerging in the spring and possibly taking over the field. Foxtail Barley Fall germinated plants gain a competitive advantage over spring seeded crops due to their early invasion in the spring. Bigger clumps of foxtail barley are harder to manage and require higher rates of herbicide applications. It is a challenge to control foxtail barley in minimal till-systems, hence, post-harvest glyphosate application provides the best root-kill of established foxtail

barley plants. It is important to note, however, that headed-out foxtail barley plants are no longer actively growing so glyphosate control will not be effective. Narrow Leaf Hawk’s Beard Over-wintering rosettes are much harder to control in the spring and once they begin to bolt, pre-seed burn off will be limited due to their large size. Post-harvest glyphosate application, if timed correctly, easily takes care of the over-wintering narrow leaf hawk’s beard plants, limiting problems during spring crop emergence. When using glyphosate as a post-harvest weed management tool, consider adding another mode of action, like Group 2 or 14, to delay herbicide resistance.
