Foundation dinner/auction planned to enhance Crescent Park features By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Parts, Service & Repair on: • Agriculture • Industrial • Commercial

Plus on site repairs

We also specialize in Custom Hauling/Recovery

Proceeds from a fundraising dinner and auction at the Heritage Inn on Sept. 20 will go towards enhancements in Crescent Park. “We want to make some enhancements to the Amphitheatre,” said George Patterson, chairman of the Crescent Park Foundation. The foundation has been doing improvements at the park since 1971. Improvements at the Amphitheatre involve space in front of the pavilion. “People like to dance there but there is nothing other than the asphalt pathway. It isn’t big enough.” Replacing a 40-foot stone retaining wall and providing wheelchair access forms part of the plan. “Some of the benches should be replaced but that is not a burning issue.” And the foundation would like to increase the number of picnic tables at the splash park area. There are only two. The foundation has a $50,000 goal for the fundraising campaign and the dinner/auction event. “The reception to the fundraising campaign has been great with a number of

$1,000 donations. The Sept. 20 event starts at 5:30 with cocktails and a roast beef/salmon dinner at 6:30. A live auction and silent auction will occur. The live auction features items like a two-person fly-in fishing camp trip, a Traeger barbecue, a Grant McLaughlin painting of dogs playing poker, and a Steady Metalworks sculpture. Tickets, $40 each, are available by calling 306-690-3289, 306-631-3533, or 306-684-9354. Past enhancements by the foundation include the paved pathway entrance to the library, arched and stone entrances on Langdon Crescent, Athabasca Street and Third Avenue, the Centennial fountain, and an accessible ramp near the outdoor pool. More recent work has involved tree sculptures and replacement of old trees. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

PRISM Awards Nominations Open Sept. 15 Sasha-Gay Lobban

It is that time of year again. The Business Women of Moose Jaw (BWMJ) are looking for the next crop of powerful and influential women to be nominated for the prestigious annual PRISM Awards. Nominations will open on Saturday, September 15th for with closing date set for October 31st. Nominations chair, Sharleen Froats says for the upcoming nominees, the BWMJ are looking to elevate and celebrate them even more than before by increasing the awards’ elegance. “We are going to increase the elegance of the event for 2019 with lots of additional things that will help us pamper the nominees and celebrate them. We’re looking forward to those who will be nominated this year.” Nominations will open and go live on September 15 on the BWMJ’s website at https://www.businesswomenmoosejaw.com. Please visit the website for criteria and to file nominations. “Persons will

be able to get all the information about the PRISM Awards 2019, as well as view past awards to get an idea of what happens at the awards as well as the categories.” “Nominations are the most critical part of the entire awards process. This really is about recognizing and celebrating women in our community who don’t necessarily receive the recognition they deserve. Taking the time to nominate someone is really what drives the entire event and it is such an important and special thing to do for somebody. We really want to encourage individuals to do that,” added Froats. The 6th annual PRISM Awards is scheduled for Saturday, March 2nd, 2019. It is an opportunity to recognize women across the community for their accomplishments and contributions in various work and volunteer environments. The day that these

awards are presented is close to International Women’s Day, a global day of celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women, past, present and future. The PRISM Awards also raise funds to support the Moose Jaw Transition House. Since its inception, the PRISM Awards has raised over $95,000 in support of the Transition House, thanks to BWMJ members and the support of sponsors. The Transition House provides safety to women and children fleeing violence and empowers them to live a life free from violence, as well as shaping confident futures for themselves. There are seven PRISM awards: Five in categories that recognize certain attributes: Perseverance, Role Model, Influential, Successful and Mentor. The other two awards recognize Lifetime Achievement and Youth Achievement. The BWMJ says, “Each year the event has grown, and this year, we expect to host 325 people at our celebration. As we have grown, the media has supported the Business Women of Moose Jaw in raising awareness in the community of the awards, resulting in highly-qualified nominees. The event is a gala-style evening that features an impressive awards ceremony, background entertainment and great food, along with a Mystery Raffle that is open to all attendees.”

South Central ECIP hosts annual Halloween Bash

Gifts galore from ceiling to floor.

Sasha-Gay Lobban

The South-Central Early Childhood Intervention Program (ECIP) will be hosting its 7th annual Halloween Bash on Saturday, October 27. The popular, highly anticipated SPOOKTACULAR event will be held at the Masonic Temple at 1755 Main St. N. Moose Jaw. The Halloween Bash is an ADULTS ONLY event which sees ECIP fundraising to support its programing for children and families they work with. Doors to this event will open at 8pm. Executive Director at South Central ECIP, Nancy Rosnes says their programing reaches a large geographic and there is a need to fundraise to acquire some resources needed to carry out their programing. “The ECIP are a network of programs across Saskatchewan. There are four different programs across the province and we work with children from birth to school age—about 0-6; children that have a delay in development, whereas they’ve not quiet reached their developmental milestones or they have a diagnosed delay or a risk for delay,� Rosnes explained. “We go into the homes and we work with the family and child to reach their goals. We work with a wide range of children from really mild delays to children that have multiple delays; cognitive, physical and medically fragile.� Rosnes says while ECIP programs are funded through the government to cover operational costs, they have to fundraise throughout the year for resources needed for programming. Some of these resources include equipment, educational toys and resource materials used in the programming and service it provides to families. “All the ECIP programs are non-profit organizations. We receive our funding from the government through the Minister of Education. However, the grant that we receive covers operational expenses such as rent, bills and staff wages. Anything else that we require for the program, for exam-

ple, we work with a lot of toys resources specialized therapy products, we have to fundraise for all those kinds of resources. We have a work vehicle to get back and forth because we serve a lot of the rural areas—south central, where we use some of our grant money to also support. We have a second vehicle where we have to fundraise to cover the expenses that this requires. So, we do a lot of fundraising, not only for the program for the resources we need but also to get our name out there to let people know about ECIP in the area, what we do and that we’re here to help.� As a result, ECIP is staging its annual Halloween Bash and are looking to raise $5000. Rosnes says local businesses can also join in to sponsor the event or donate door prizes. “One of our biggest fundraisers that we do every year is our Halloween Bash. This is our 7th annual staging which is an ADULTS ONLY party. We have a theme every year where we transform the inside of the space we rent into that year’s theme. This year’s theme is “CarnEViL�. We invite people to dress up and come out to have a great time!� The Halloween Bash will feature a midnight lunch, DJ, door and costume prizes, dancing and a draw for a progressive 50/50 raffle. Tickets are $25 in advance and can be purchased by calling the ECIP office at 306-692-2616 or Nancy at 306-630-5892. Tickets will be $30 at the door. You can also keep an eye on ECIP’s Facebook page for exciting news about the Halloween Bash. For more information on ECIP or the Halloween Bash, you can also call 306-692-2616. For the past 35 years, South Central ECIP has helped hundreds of children with special needs reach their developmental milestones and individual goals as well as provide support with transitions into school, referrals to other agencies and more. It provides family focused, home based services to families in Moose Jaw.

TRADING THOUGHTS

Medicine Hat bank branch almost turned into cannabis dispensary

by Ron Walter

For a few days the City of Medicine Hat processed an application allowing a new marijuana store in an existing Bank of Montreal branch. Buying a toke for some folks would have been as easy as transferring cash from their bank account. The cannabis store application sailed through the municipal planning commission, meeting all requirements for zoning. Nine marijuana store applications were approved in one meeting. The application contained a photo of the BMO branch, which raised some questions but no action. The mistake was later discovered. The applicant had been supplied the wrong address for a bay in the plaza

where it planned to locate. City officials said the mistake would have been caught at the building permit stage. Let’s hope so. One joke around the Gas City is that big-spending marijuana store developers are replacing the lost big-spending oil and gas crowd. Just outside the city on the highway to Lethbridge a gigantic greenhouse will evidently supply cannabis product and jobs. —————— According to the daily Medicine Hat NEWS, a newspaper that has managed well against the competition and led by former Moose Jaw businessman Mike Hertz, that city is undergoing confusion about what can and can’t be placed in those blue recycling bins. Medicine Hat has been in the blue bin business for light years, yet residents still find confusion on what can and can’t go in. Is that a sign for Moose Jaw’s future? Wonder if Medicine Hat garbage collection/recycling costs have doubled in five years like Moose Jaw’s?

There are apparently no money-back guarantees when the court seizes money. The NEWS reported on a man charged with 14 counts of inciting hatred by writing anti-Semitic slogans on currency. He asked to get his money and stuff back. The judge told him the bills are evidence and refused. The man has been representing himself in court in one of those planned obstructionist tactics, where the accused does not recognize the state. Although he said he may get a lawyer. —————— The City of Medicine Hat took out a quarter page ad in The NEWS telling folks that a major downtown street project was now completed. What did the City of Moose Jaw do for High Street? —————— The news pages were full of comment about the court decision delaying the Trans-Mountain Pipeline. Of course, Justin Trudeau got all the blame. People have forgotten the Harper Conservatives had 10 years to get a pipeline and failed. They even blew a shot at a pipeline through America when Harper gave the U.S. president a deadline to approve the project. Imagine Trump’s tweets if Trudeau gave him a deadline on anything. The other thing people forget is the Harper Conservatives enacted changes to fast track the pipeline approval process. Until then the process was respected by all. Now we are still dealing with public suspicion and fallout from that decision. —————— A sign on the front door at the A &W in the cowtown of Swift Current apologized for not having any of the new meatless burgers. They all sold out very quickly. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Second Chance Prom hosts a Medieval Feast Sasha-Gay Lobban

If you didn’t get an opportunity to attend your high school prom or simply want to dress up and have a fun night out with friends, Second Chance Prom is giving you a chance to do so! Second Chance Prom, a local group in Moose Jaw which was founded by Debbie Trethewey, sees a group of individuals coming together to host an annual event that will give guests a nostalgic feeling of experiencing a high school prom; whether you had a chance to attend yours back in the day or not. The group is coming together once more to host their annual ‘prom’ which sees up to 50 guests each year. This year, the theme for the evening is Medieval Feast, which will take individuals as far back as the 15th century for a fun night of activities. The event will be held at the Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation (behind the mall) at 5:00pm on Saturday, Septem-

ber 15. Brenda McKenzie, a member of Second Chance Prom says this is the fourth year the event is being hosted. “This is our 4th year hosting this event. It started when my sister [Debbie Trethewey] wanted to do a prom for persons that have never had a prom before. Each year we choose a theme that individuals seem to enjoy.” “This year we chose a Medieval theme.

They look forward to what the next theme is going to be,” McKenzie said. “This year’s theme, the Medieval Feast, is something different that the community can look forward to where we get a chance to dress up in some older costumes from those times and learn medieval dances.”

Tickets are pre-sold and will not be available at the door. The Second Chance Prom says this year, all proceeds from the event will go to families for Christmas. “We will be adopting families for Christmas where we will assist those in need, like purchasing toys or anything they may need at that time.” If you want to find out more about this cause, or this year’s event, you can contact Brenda at 306-631-3138 or Debbie at 306-313-9340.

Local Organizations Making Things Happen

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson

It’s the end of the growing season, but the start of a new season for many organizations, clubs, and community groups. We are privileged to have many diverse groups serving our community in so many ways. Service clubs, sports groups, faith-based organizations, seniors associations, art and music involvement, youth programs: there is something for everyMoose Jaw North one to keep active, develop their talents, and help others. Warren Michelson, MLA Working together towards a goal is rewarding and gives meaning to our lives. Our service clubs provide this, as their members come together to improve the lives of youth and those in need. They raise much needed funds for those facing health, mental, physical or financial challenges. Their work allows youth to take part in sports, art, music, and travel opportunities. The importance of keeping our youth active is becoming more and more apparent. Sometimes tight finances are an obstacle to keeping youth involved. Canadian Tire Jumpstart, the YWCA, and the Canadian Cadet program provide some low-cost opportunities. We are fortunate to have Air Cadets, Army Cadets and Sea/Navy Cadets in Moose Jaw. I am always impressed by the leadership and skills on display when I attend the end of the year Annual Reviews for these organizations. From my experience growing up involved in the Air Cadet Program, I know the pride established through these organizations, along with the sense of fulfilment and confidence it builds. The commitment of volunteers and sponsor organizations deserve a huge thank you for their unselfish part in developing interest, talent and skill in our youth. In appreciation of the commitment of these organizations, the Government of Saskatchewan is accepting nominations for the 2018 Premier’s Service Club Award now and until September 30, 2018. The Premier’s Service Club Award recognizes the dedication and charity of the province’s service clubs. Eligible groups are voluntary, non-profit service clubs or fraternal organizations where people meet regularly to fundraise for other need-based organized programs. This award does not recognize individuals, and service clubs cannot self-nominate. Groups selected to receive the Premier’s Service Club Award will be presented their awards at an event in their home communities in 2019. It goes without saying that these valuable organizations are made up of some exceptional individuals. Recognizing these individuals is also important, as it inspires all of us to strive to contribute to our community. Nominations are being requested by the Lieutenant Governor’s office for the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal and the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. The Saskatchewan Order of Merit recognizes excellence, achievement, and contributions to the cultural, social and economic well-being of the province, either through a career or volunteer involvement. The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal is a means to formally acknowledge the selfless devotion of an individual volunteer, and as a way to present role models to Saskatchewan citizens. Please consider nominating one of our outstanding Moose Jaw service clubs or individuals for one of these awards. For a nomination form, or more information, visit www.saskatchewan.ca/honoursawards or drop by the constituency office at 326 High Street West. We encourage you to get out and be active this season; for your own benefit, to assist others and to make our city a better community.

LETTER

TO THE

EDITOR

The Regina bypass is an overpriced project Updated: August 23, 2018 We’re paying too much for bypass The Regina bypass is a flawed project. It is built within the east end of the city, it only goes around 75 per cent of the city, and it is ridiculously overpriced. A lot of Saskatchewan people have driven the Coquihalla highway in British Columbia, and the ones who haven’t certainly are aware of it. Everybody knows that British Columbia has mountainous terrain, and we can all imagine that building a highway there would be no small feat. By comparison, building a highway here would be quite simple and would most certainly cost substantially less money. At least that is what I would think. I was very surprised to find out that the three phases of the Coquihalla only cost $848 million to build. So here are some facts I found on the Internet. The last phase of the Coquihalla highway was completed in 1990, at a total cost for all three phases of $848 million. This was 324 kilometres of roadways through mountainous terrain with many bridges, overpasses etc. Adjusting this cost for inflation using an online calculator, the cost today would be $1.63 billion. This project included:

18 highway interchanges, 38 bridge and overpass structures, 19 vehicle underpasses, eight avalanche dams, 19 containment basins, two diversion trenches and three sets of avalanche benches, one massive Great Bear Snowshed, 50 pipeline crossings and 324 kilometres of four or more lanes of highway. In comparison, the Regina bypass will cost approximately $1.88 billion and the project will include: 12 overpasses, 40 km of new four-lane highway, 20 km of resurfaced four-lane highway, 55 km of new service roads, and twinning of about five km of Highway 6. The Regina bypass is built on flat land with no rock blasting, mountains to move and valleys to fill in. This is a substantially easier project to build but it will cost more than the Coquihalla’s three phases? Are the Saskatchewan taxpayers getting good value for their dollar? Looking at the comparison to the three phases of the 324 kilometres of the Coquihalla highway and all the rest of the infrastructure that had to be built, it is pretty easy to see that we are really paying way too much for our little flatland project!

High Street blues sink dive shop Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express

Navigating “the worst road in Saskatchewan” was a nuisance for Moose Jaw residents. Curtis Temple believes the prolonged water main repairs on High Street was a fatal blow to his business. After 20 years in business, Temple is planning to close Scuba Guys Dive Shop. He doesn’t believe his business can recover from the toll of the roadwork. “My sales were generally between $14,000 and $19,000 a month and I was down to $2,500 a month. That doesn’t even pay my bills,” Temple said. “We had kind of a tough year, the year before, but we were still very consistent with being able to make it up in the right times. This just absolutely killed us. “I know other businesses (on High Street) and I’ve talked to them too and we’re all in the same boat. I decided I’m going to close before I have to declare bankruptcy.” The 300 to 800 blocks of High Street West were under extensive construction as part of the City’s cast iron replacement project beginning in July of 2017. The project was scheduled to be completed by that fall. On May 11, 2018 the City fired the contractor that had been overseeing the job and took over the work of completing the project. The road was named the worst in the province in CAA Saskatchewan’s Worst Roads online vote for 2018. Part of the frustration for Temple was that his business is on the 200 block of

As one of Moose Jaw’s main thoroughfares, in May of this year, the pothole-strewn, gravel-covered mess known as High Street was a far cry from what it is now.

High Street and wasn’t supposed to be affected. “There was heavy equipment there. The only way I could get to my shop was through the narrow back alley. I get into my shop and my (co-worker) tells me ‘we don’t have any water,’” Temple recalled of the day the construction began. “There was no notice on the door or anything. I got a notice from the contractor a few days later saying that we may need to boil our water, but we had no water.” Temple said he didn’t have water in his building for six weeks. “They finally brought me a garden hose

to the back of my building, so we could flush the toilets,” Temple said. “It wasn’t drinkable water. Up until then I was bringing water from the house down to my shop just so that we could stay open.” Beyond the slowed traffic on High Street, Temple said he and other business-owners in the area were frustrated by the lack of communication from the City. “They never, ever came to us. I know some of the other businesses were calling and emailing daily,” Temple said. “I figured this was a temporary situation. That’s what they told us when they did talk to us. Well temporary is a couple of days, maybe a couple of weeks, but not a year. It was just one nightmare after another.” When asked for a comment, the City of Moose Jaw emphasized that while the 300-800 blocks of High Street were unpaved, they remained open through the winter and spring when construction was halted due to the weather. “While some traffic restrictions were in place in the affected blocks at various points during construction, no water main construction took place on the 200 block, though there was a service connection leak that was repaired. Access to the 200 block in at least one direction would have been provided at all times throughout the project,” read the City’s statement. “While portions of High Street had to be blocked to traffic at various points during construction, alternative access points to High Street businesses and properties were available. This was communicated to media/residents weekly this summer, along with the notice that all businesses were open on High Street.” Temple said that people were avoiding High Street full-stop and all of the businesses on the street were adversely affected. “They kept telling us that we weren’t affected by it,” Temple said. “They said ‘well we didn’t do any digging in front

of your building’, but you had equipment planted here, you had barricades at Second Avenue. “When people look down High St. from First Avenue and the first thing they see is Second Avenue barricaded off, they don’t come by. No one was coming down. We had zero business.” Once the City took over the project they tried to improve communication with frustrated business owners and the public. “The City, working with our engineering consultants and contractors, has taken a more proactive approach to communication with property owners this construction season and we continue to work at providing timely and accurate information to all affected stakeholders,” reads the City’s statement in part. “The City sympathizes with affected property owners and residents, and shares frustration that the project was not completed on schedule in 2017. “It is our hope to see all businesses thrive in Moose Jaw. We remind residents and visitors that construction of High Street is complete, and the roadway is in excellent shape for anyone wishing to frequent the great variety of businesses along the High Street corridor.” The shop was a passion for Temple. He still worked a full-time job as an instrumentation technologist at Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant. The shop is open 4:30-7 p.m. on weekdays and open a full day on Saturday. His former partner in owning the shop, Gregg Bathgate, retired last year. “Scuba diving is pretty unique, and it takes a lot of work to get a business like this going in Saskatchewan and we were quite successful,” Temple said. “I’m quite bitter about the situation.” Temple is a certified scuba instructor, trainer and evaluator. That allowed customers to do their six-week Open Water Scuba Diving course and then get outfitted at the store as well. Some of his longterm customers have come in to pick up smaller items for their equipment, but interest in the classes has dried up. “Normally, in a year like this I would have taught between six and eight basic open water classes that would have had six people to eight people in each class. This year I had one class with three people,” Temple said. Temple expects to close the store by the end of November. “I’m going to try to sell off what I have left for inventory and see if I can find a buyer for some of the other equipment that I have,” he said. “This has been my big dream. I’ve owned this shop for the last 20 years and I’ve taught scuba diving for the last 30 years. It’s very heartbreaking to have to shut down because of something like this. “There is a beautiful road there now. When my moving truck comes to pick everything up, it’s going to be nice and smooth.”

Hot Pressure Washers!! REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Missing 12-pack of pop finally makes it home A 12-pack of my favourite soft drink has restored my faith in the honesty and goodness of my fellow citizens. It has become the tradition in our household to purchase our weekly allotment of groceries on one day during Joyce Walter the weekend. The Air Miles For Moose Jaw Express coupons that come out peronjoy@sasktel.net riodically are usually only accepted Friday, Saturday or Sunday so that is an incentive to shop on those days while maintaining a running grocery list throughout the week. And we also adhere to certain rituals: I push the cart in the store while Housemate does the heavy lifting and reaches all the higher shelves where inevitably several items on the list are positioned for taller shoppers. Someday when I own a grocery store, it will be designed for persons of my height (and placement won’t change on a weekly basis to confuse the customer, but that’s another story.) Another ritual is that Housemate also unloads the

grocery cart, placing bags of groceries into the vehicle and then returns the cart to the storage area. At home he unloads, with my help with the door and some lighter bags. Thus, we did our shopping on a recent week, with my 12-pack of Ginger Ale being one of the purchases, not because the drink was on sale but simply because I drink it for various reasons and the home supply was running out. Into the cart went the cardboard package containing 12 cans (which we recycle for refunds two or three times a year.) The cashier efficiently rang through our groceries and placed the pop in the cart and off we went to the parking lot and then to the driveway and finally into the house to put the groceries in their assigned spot. A few days later something clicked: I could not find the box of pop. I looked in all the usual places, even checking the vehicle in case it had been forgotten when we unloaded. Nowhere to be found was our soda pop. We decided we must have left it in the cart by mistake. Sometimes we do overlook what is right in front of us. Ginger Ale went onto the next shopping list. As we went through the checkout the following week,

Check Your Smoke Alarms Regularly Saskatchewan residents are encouraged to “look upâ€? and check their smoke alarms. Working smoke alarms should be installed on each level of your home and outside each sleeping area. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on where to place the alarm to ensure best performance and to minimize false alarms. When conducting your check, go to each of the smoke alarms in your home to: • Determine the age of each alarm: if a smoke alarm is older than 10 years, the alarm needs to be replaced. • Replace batteries: smoke alarm batteries should be replaced annually and always when the alarm ‘chirps’. • Test your alarms monthly: post a smoke alarm test checklist in your home to remind you to test each one monthly. Test each smoke and carbon monoxide alarm in your house following the manufacturer’s instructions. If the alarm doesn’t work when tested, replace it immediately. You should also practice your home fire escape plan with all members of your family during your check. Refer to your plan as you walk through the escape routes for each room. Practicing allows you to ensure all exits are practical and easy to use. For more information about preparing a home escape plan or about installing and testing smoke alarms, contact your local fire department.

we happened to mention to our favourite grocery store employee that we had misplaced our purchase of the week before and had likely left it in the cart. “Did you come back for it?� he asked. We replied in the negative. Then he went to the customer service desk, retrieved a notebook and looked up the date of our previous visit. There it was, a 12-pack of Ginger Ale, returned by another shopper, with the notation that it was left behind by someone who must have been in a hurry to get home to watch soap operas. We delayed the checkout lineup to discuss this result with our friendly clerk, who advised that most items left behind are turned in, that most people are honest and trustworthy in similar situations. We both checked carefully on this trip to make sure this case of pop made it out of the cart and into the house. So now I raise a can of Ginger Ale in a toast to the honest person who turned in our purchase and to the grocery store employee who made sure we went home happy.

Unidirectional Flushing to Improve Water Quality

The City of Moose Jaw has already begun the Unidirectional Water Main Flushing with Water mains in Zone 2 running through to September 30. Flushing will take place from: 7:30 am to 7:30 pm Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday. Over time, water mains corrode from the inside as well as the outside, and reduce the inside diameter. The flushing program will remove the most recent mineral deposits, improving the water quality as well as the hydraulic carrying capacity

of the pipe. The benefit of this program is that it removes any sedimentation from the water mains, improves water quality, and has the potential to reduce our water distribution pumping costs. Residents are asked to refrain from using water while crews are flushing in their area, as the water may have a brown or rusty appearance. The water may become discoloured, but this discolouration shouldn’t last for more than a day once the flushing is complete in the area. Residents may want to store water ahead of time for potable use. Opening the cold water taps one at a time for about 30-60 seconds can help clear water that is cloudy or contains sediment. If after 30-60 seconds the water remains cloudy or still contains sediment, repeat the process until the water is clear.

DOWN ON THE

CORNER

You Might Be a Maniac

Many people are maniacs and unless they commit crimes or are indecent, most of “us” just live with our manias. The smartypantsknowitallguys say that an obsession with something is a mania. When the term is used in a medical sense, it usually describes a mental disorder. They say that recognition of a by Dale “bushy” Bush problem is the first step to recovery. I am taking that brave, heroic, courageous, daring and dauntless step by acknowledging some of my...ahem… manias. Please be patient with me as I challenge myself in my eternal quest for self-improvement. Now just because I am smart, good looking, brag a lot and am very proud of the fact that I have had 4 great years of grade 8, I apparently am an egomaniac. Cool! Now I have another thing to brag about! This egomaniac thing is easy… yet another thing to brag about! I love music; it is an important part of my day with practice, rehearsals and performances sometimes amounting to as many as 8 hours a day. I am involved in three or four musical projects and it would be a safe statement to say I might be obsessed. It would also be a safe statement to call me a melomaniac, a musical maniac, but I think I like the term “mellow-maniac” much better because this mania keeps me calm, serene and somewhat focused. We live in an area where maintaining an outdoor skating rink for more than 3 months is difficult, but during those wonderful 3 months Mrs. B and myself, are joined by many other members of the community who are maniacs. Rinkomaniacs, or people who are passionate about ice skating, are part of most Canadian communities. While we all know about our mania, we kind of keep it to ourselves because it can be a source of national and self-pride. I skate when I can and I am a great skater…dang it, there goes that egomaniac thing again! If you called me a technomaniac, I would just laugh at you and go back to doing things the old-fashioned way…by hand! Someone who is obsessed with technology would suffer if they were separated from any of today’s technologic advancements; that is a technomaniac. When we have our family gatherings, it becomes obvious to me that members of my clan are technomaniacs hooked on technology. After a great meal, we all sit around the house and text and email each other about what to have for dessert. Sigh, sometimes the truth hits close to home. I once was a Student Transportation Specialist and miss most things about the job as a school bus driver. One thing not missed is coping with the many rhinotillexomaniacs that I had to deal with virtually every day. Unless you have been a school bus driver, you never know how to handle the little ones who are, or seem to be, obsessed with picking their noses. Rhinotillexomania is one of the most common reasons that school bus divers quit. That and the fact that parents and school boards now frown on the use of tasers or cattle prods as a form of student control. Fortunately, I quit when they removed the ashtrays for the drivers…and the students! We have all been affected by, or have seen manias and maniacs come and go…Beatlemania, Hula-hoops, fidget-spinners and the list goes on with new manias seemingly appearing every day. I am an eternal optimist and my new mania is a hope that the world becomes obsessed with common sense and decency, therefore becoming peacemaniacs. Hey! Wait a minute! Didn’t we try that a few decades ago? Maybe it’s time for peacemania to be a “new” fad.

You will have to pay the piper when it comes to meter enforcement The City of Moose Jaw has made changes to the City’s Traffic Bylaw No. 5556 regarding parking at metered stalls, with enforcement beginning on October 1, 2018. The updated Bylaw sees an end to parking meter fee exemptions previously awarded to those with Disability placards or Veteran’s license plates. Commissionaires will issue warnings through to the end of September, to those no longer exempted by the Bylaw who fail to provide payment at metered parking stalls. Section 23 of the amended Traffic Bylaw, recommended by the Transportation Services Advisory Committee (TSAC) and passed by City Council June 11, 2018, states: “No person shall park a vehicle

It is said that there is strength in numbers, but when it comes to friends and social support, is having one good friend better than having 50 acquaintances? If you have a Facebook account, which most people have these days, you will understand the concept of “friends”, when referring to the people you associate with, and share pictures and status updates on this social media. A few of my Facebook friends have hundreds of their own friends, and I’ve heard of others having friends into the thousands. I’m not sure if some consider this number to be a status symbol, something they want others to envy, or if they truly consider all of these connections as real “friends”. I recently came across the Japanese term “moai”, referring to a social support group. Research into why certain regions of the world enjoy greater longevity lead to identifying social support as a key factor in affecting lifespan in a positive manner. The Japanese stress the importance of surrounding ones’ self with key individuals, friends, who can provide social, wellness, spiritual and even financial support. Elders will often play a role in surrounding youth with these individu-

als with a goal of life-long support. This support network more often becomes a circle of friends rather than just mentors. Can you honestly say that those who you consider friends provide you with the social support you need? Good friends will offer inject unconditional, positive influence into your life. Because it would be rare to find one friend that would provide the “all inclusive” package of spiritual, health, social and financial support, a small group of 4 to 6 tight friends appears to be the favoured group in which to be included Taking stock of your existing circle of friends may identify strengths, weakness or even missing links. If you are struggling financially, are you surrounding yourself with those whose spending habits or retirement goals differ from yours? If you are searching for spiritual nirvana, do those around you share similar enlightenment? It is never too late to start your own “Moai”. Surround yourself with those who have common interests and goals. Investing more time and effort into these relationships rather than hundreds of acquaintances, may extend your own longevity and add quality to those years.

Canada’s children face staggering issues A current national study on Canada’s children shows some very alarming issues facing them, including staggeringly high rates of mental health issues, poverty, obesity and mortality. Entitled ‘Raising Canada’ the report is based on data from Statistics Canada, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), the Canadian Institute of Child Health (CICH), Health Canada, and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). Findings are as follows: - Mortality • The leading causes for childhood deaths in Canada are preventable accidents and injuries and suicide; • Canada’s rate of infant mortality is among the highest of OECD countries. Saskatchewan’s infant mortality rate is 5.8 deaths per 1,000), higher than all the Prairie Provinces. Nunavut has the highest rate, with 17.7 – more than double any other province). - Mental Health • Over the last 10 years, there has been a 66 per cent increase in emergency department visits, and a 55 per cent increase in hospitalizations, of children and youth (age 5-24 years) due to mental health concerns; 1,906 children were hospitalized in Saskatchewan in 2016 to 2017 for mental health concerns, according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information. • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for Canadian children and youth, and Canada is ranked in the top five countries for the highest child suicide rates globally. - Physical Health • 27.9 per cent of children age 12-17 reported being overweight or obese; Saskatchewan is tied for sixth healthiest province with Nova Scotia and Ontario (30.58 per cent of children classified as overweight or obese, according to Statistics Canada). (No data provided from the territories) • 25 per cent of children have not received the full 4 recommended doses of diphtheria, whooping cough, and tetanus vaccine by age 2; • 35 per cent of 5-17-year olds meeting the daily recommended guidelines for physical activity. - Poverty • 1.2 million children live in low-income housing; Saskatchewan ranked well in this category, tying for seventh place with Newfoundland and Labrador for highest number of children in low income households, according to 2016 Census (17.8 per cent) (Census did not include data from territories). • 10.7 per cent of families with children under 6 years of age say they experience food insecurity. - Child Abuse • One in three Canadians reports having suffered some form of child abuse before the age of 16; • 26 per cent experienced physical abuse, 10 per cent experienced sexual abuse, and eight per cent had exposure to intimate partner violence. · Injuries • In 2013-14, 17,500 hospitalizations of children and youth were for injuries, 3,000 of which were intentional/caused by others. Sara Austin, founder and Lead Director of Children First Canada says that statistics prove that Canada is NOT one of the best countries in the world to raise a family. It consistently ranks far behind most other affluent nations for the wellbeing of children, falling in 25th place according to UNICEF.

Moose Jaw Airport Authority Update Bylaw passes 3rd Reading at City Council

Indoor and outdoor advertising, vehicle graphics, banners, posters and displays, labels, decals and apparel heat transfers.

ANOTHER GREAT SERVICE FROM...

By Greg Simpson Pres/CEO, Simpson Seeds Inc.

Finally, the establishment of the Moose Jaw Municipal Airport Authority(MJMAA) has cleared a major hurdle with the passing of the 3rd and finally reading of the bylaw. It is a major victory that we can celebrate but we have other barriers to overcome in the months ahead. On behalf of the working group who has spend the past 4 years lobbying for this initiative, I want to thank His Worship Fraser Tolmie and those supporting members of city council who voted in favour of this initiative. Airport Authorities have become the preferred governance model across Canada. Proper funding of airports is necessary to enable airports to be properly maintained, increase safety of operations, and to fund the airport improvements to meet operational needs for today’s high-performance aircraft.

The MJMAA has a shovel ready project to expand the runway to 4000’ in Phase One of the project. We would have preferred the construction begin this fall, but we must nominate a board, set up a not-for-profit corporation, and then get all the lease income and funding committed from various levels of government in place. As soon as the runway is expanded there will be increased opportunities for the following: • Enable the City of Moose Jaw to leverage $500,000.00 grant into a $3,300,000.00 of new capital to fund the runway, taxiway, apron expansion with new landing lights and GSP approaches.

Do you have some free time? Would you like to meet new people? We are looking for volunteers. The hours are flexible and rewarding! All proceeds from every sale goes toward the purchase of Hospital Equipment.

• Business jets such as the Cessna Citation will be able to safely land in Moose Jaw Muni once the runway is extended. I know Jimmy Pattison wants to fly to Moose Jaw with his business jet. Maybe he will invest more in Moose Jaw because we accommodate his preferred method of travel. There are many opportunities and possibilities once we get the MJMAA up and running. My only wish was this process would speed up as we could have used this nice fall weather to complete the subgrade construction.

Make sure to put on your winter tires - Almanac By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts above normal winter temperatures and above normal snowfall for Western Canada. The 2019 edition, published by Robert B. Thomas, also predicts a cooler and drier than usual April and May with a slightly drier and cooler summer. Mid-July to mid-August will be the hottest periods with heavy storm threats in late August. Harvest months of September and October next year will be rainier and cooler than normal. Starting this November, the almanac sees rain and showers throughout the first 17 days with snow and rain to follow.

December is supposed to be four degrees above normal with rain on many days. The week of Christmas will see a colder mercury and snow. Temperatures will be one degree below average in January but three periods of rain will happen that month. Warmer temperatures will bring 40 per cent above average precipitation. March precipitation will be one-quarter more than usual. April starts and ends with snow and slightly cooler weather. May sees snow just after Victoria Day. Rain will hit in early and throughout June with lots of scattered thunderstorms in July. August has more rain than usual and lots of thunderstorms.

Precipitation in September 2019 will be almost twice the average while October rain will be below the normal. Environment Canada’s winter forecast suggests 40 per cent chance of above normal snow and temperature for Saskatchewan. AccuWeather Canada predicts below normal winter temperatures for all of Western Canada with near normal snowfall in this part of Saskatchewan. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

BIZWORLD

By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Local potash mine project clears one hurdle; financing left to obtain While companies proposing to build potash mines across Saskatchewan are spinning their wheels over low prices, a planned potash project northwest of Moose Jaw just passed an all-important milestone. Gensource Potash’s plans to build a mini-potash mine using solution mining technology received one big green light from the Province of Saskatchewan. A ministerial determination lifted the need for an Environmental Impact Assessment (IEA) study on this project. The ministerial determination noted that certain positive environmental attributes will not trigger the stringent criteria of the act governing environment and resource development. First, the solution mine will not involve any tailings pile or tailings pond like those we see at other mines. All excess salt and slag will be pumped back underground where it came from. Nor will there be a brine pond, another common feature of solution mines. The mine will have little impact on local utilities, local infrastructure and will use less water per tonne of production than competing mines. Gensource will generate its own power from natural gas, needing only access to a main gas line near the project.

The previously used technology Gensource will develop only needs access to groundwater sources. The ministerial order cuts some six to 12 months off the construction time. Those concerned with the lack of an environmental assessment should recognize that Gensource engaged global consultant Golder Associates Ltd. which performed a technical report on the project. That report served as the basis for the ministerial determination exempting the project from the IEA study. The mine will employ around 45 workers and Gensource has the opportunity to build another one or two mines in the region. Question is: where does this potash project go from here? Before construction can begin the company needs financing. Obtaining the $200 million debt financing should be simpler than expected. The first 10 years of production are under contract to a U.S. agricultural operation, ensuring a market for the production. Gensource could have some difficulty raising its $80 million share for construction. Before the ministerial determination was announced shares traded at 12 cents. The announcement had no impact on the share price. On some days it dropped to 11.5 cents.

Usually, good news like this props up the share price. So what gives? Gensource is an unknown relatively tiny company with a market value of $40 million. The company has 351 million shares outstanding. With a 12-cent share price, Gensource needs to issue almost twice as many shares as are out to raise the cash needed to build the mine. Investors are worried their share values will be so diluted there won’t be any fat profits in 2020 when the mine could open. If shares got to 50 cents, finding the mine-building cash would be much less dilutive. As a shareholder in Gensource, Yours Truly has always believed the real big return on investment will come when the second mini-mine is built, if I live that long. I’m in the age category where buying green bananas can pose a risk. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security.

Diverse Hall of Fame class made mark locally and internationally Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw District Sports Hall of Fame class of 2018 features athletes who appeared on the world’s stage and athletes and builders who have given back close to home. “It’s another extremely worthy induction class. Great folks, all of them; all involved in creating sports history in Moose Jaw and all continuing to give back to their sport wherever they are, which is a nice thing,” said Moose Jaw District Sports Hall of Fame president Larry Graham. This year’s six-person class features Roger Anholt, Jim Baba, Hub Gutheridge, Susan Humphreys, George Hunchuk and Doug Smail. Gutheridge and Hunchuk will be inducted posthumously. The class of 2018 will be inducted on Saturday, Oct. 20th at Mosaic Place. Tickets are on sale at the Mosaic Place box office. The Hall of Fame is sponsored by the Moose Jaw Police Association.

When it comes right down to it.” Anholt knows Baba well from the Canadian baseball world and knew Gutheridge and Hunchuk a little as well. He is looking forward to meeting Humphreys and Smail at the induction ceremony. Anholt also knew or taught a number of the previous inductees. “It’s a great group,” Anholt said. “You look at the names from the four years of inductees; it’s such a wide range of sports and wide range of what people have done and what they’ve accomplished and what they’ve done for others as well. “It’s a wonderful thing they have done

Life Saving Society of Canada. He was the Moose Jaw Public Schools physical education supervisor and organized the school sports and swimming programs. He was one of the driving forces behind the construction of a football and track facility at Riverview Collegiate. In 1972, at the opening of the first Saskatchewan Summer Games, the facility was named Gutheridge Field in his honour. Humphreys finished second at the 1994 Canadian figure skating championships to qualify for the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. She won a national title in 1997 after reaching the podium the four previous years. She also competed at numerous international competitions, notably finishing second at the 1993 Grand Prix Internationals. Humphreys began skating under the tutelage of her aunt Carol and skated with the Moose Jaw Figure Skating Club for 10 years before moving to Vancouver and Edmonton to further her skating career. Hunchuk (1927 - 1996) was a standout baseball and hockey player. During the Original Six era, Hunchuk was a top minor league player, setting a record for goals by a defenceman with the Pacific Coast league’s Vancouver Canucks and being named a first-team all-star with the Los Angeles Monarchs the next season. He earned a tryout with the Toronto Maple Leafs the following season, but he moved home due to work commitments in 1951. He played senior hockey for the next 20 years, co-founding the Moose Jaw PlaMors in 1959. Hunchuk also had a pro tryout with Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs, showing his two-sport prowess. He spent 15 years catching in the South Saskatchewan Baseball League and won the batting title in 1960. In addition to coaching hockey, baseball and fastball, Hunchuk was a member of Moose Jaw City Council for 18 years. Smail played 887 games over a 13-year career in the National Hockey League. Smail played in the 1990 All-Star Game and holds the Winnipeg Jets career record with 28 short-handed goals. He also played in Minnesota, Quebec and Ottawa, but began his career at home with the Moose Jaw Canucks and was named the SJHL’s most valuable player while also winning the scoring title in 1976-77. He moved on to the University of North Dakota where won an NCAA title in 1980 and was named the MVP of the championship tournament.

Farmers develop purpose for old, worn-out equipment By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

Saskatchewan farmers are handy at adapting old stuff to a new useful purpose. These photos display three such examples of innovative thought. The old bulk storage gasoline tank would have ended its days on the scrap heap, but a Vanguard district farmer developed the tank into two garden plots. By welding feet and supports onto each half of the tank, he created garden plots that a gardener with back pain issues can work with comfortably. The stand-up garden box has an added advantage of attracting the sun’s hat to help with faster seed emergence and plant growth. A version of planter boxes, the stand-up garden box is becoming popular with aging gardeners. An Elfros area farmer converted an old International Harvester drill into an ice box to keep beverages cool for a post-wedding reception on the farm. An old drill at Riverhurst was saved from the scrap buyer by planting flowers in the seed box in it and placing the unit in a park near the abandoned railway bed.

Does fair always mean equal in family farm transition? We often hear that fair is not necessarily equal when it comes to allocating assets between farming and non-farming children in farm transition. Do you agree? Some people assume that to be fair to their children, they have to treat them equally. This often comes up in farm succession planning and estate planning whether the farm is passed to children while the parents are living or after they have passed away. In my view, a transfer of a million in farm assets can’t be viewed the same way a million in cash. A child getting the farm assets has the ongoing business risk that is farming, and the farm assets are not liquid. In addition, the $1 million in cash will return value, but $1 million in farmland needs the hard work of the farming child to generate anything.

“The first challenge is to come up with a workable plan and discuss it with the entire family.”

Whether the farm child or children have contributed more to the farm business than their siblings may also be a factor. Every family has to come to its own conclusion about what is fair. Can life insurance policies be used to equalize what each kid receives?

Life insurance can be an appropriate planning tool, but with the increasing value of farm businesses, it may not be the only tool needed. Buying a large enough life insurance policy to set up against farm asset values may be unavailable or simply too expensive. And even if a policy is available, premiums escalate with the age of the insured. Life insurance can be quite expensive by the time the insured is in their 60s. What about passing some of the farmland to non-farming children? Including this as part of a succession plan is common. There should be consideration to whether a mechanism is needed to give the farming child or children access to land passed to non-farming children. Agreements can include the right of the farming child or children to lease these lands from the non-farming family. Mortgages can be provided in favour of the non-farming child or children to pro-

vide for future payments. There are also other ways to involve or provide for non-farming children from the farming assets. However, it’s important to consider all the eventualities, and be creative. For instance, there can be a cooling-off period where the land transferred to non-farming children can’t be sold for a period of time to allow the farming child to reach a stable point where the assets can be “bought out.” There can also be options to purchase, rights of first refusal and other rights included in these sorts of arrangements. What are some common challenges in the planning process? The first challenge is to come up with a workable plan and discuss it with the entire family. It’s important to capture that plan in writing to avoid misunderstandings and prevent disruptions to, or failure of, implementation of the plan. There’s need to fully analyze what the farm business consists of, what

the parents need, what the farm will be able to produce, what the farm can support in terms of debt and other obligations, and what the farm business will look like in the hands of the farming child or children. No planning should occur without a thorough review and understanding of these key questions. Then the business owners can pursue the plan that best achieves their goals and objectives. Are there special considerations for incorporated farms? If there’s going to be a farm corporation, and there are many reasons to utilize a corporation, there should be different classes of shares. Dividends are a good way to allocate income from the corporation. Different classes of shares allow you to pay different dividends. You can’t pay different dividends to the same class of shares. It’s best to set up different share classes when the corporation is initially established. While it can also be done at a later date by amending the corporation, that can be more complicated. Whether or not a farm is incorporated, a detailed business analysis is a very important part of succession planning. If the goal is to maintain a viable farm for the next generation, a thoroughly defined and well considered succession plan will help guide and implement the allocation of assets to farming and non-farming children and preserve the farm business.

Mental health checkups are for farmers, too Chronic stress has a direct link to mental health problems, including depression Since farmers can’t leave their worries at the office, they face many pressures on a constant basis Treatment facilities are not always available in rural areas, but online counselling services are becoming more popular Farming is a unique way of life that offers many rewards. But many pressures also come with the territory, from market prices and debt loads to machinery upkeep and repair to weather and dealing with family. And unlike most jobs, farmers can’t go home and leave those worries behind. Stress and mental health You don’t have to be a rocket scientist – nor a psychiatrist – to get an inkling for the impacts that such relentless responsibilities can have on mental health. Many studies show a direct correlation between chronic stress and a multitude of mood disorders, including depression. It also increases the risk of developing a host of health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer and weakened immune systems. “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist – nor a psychiatrist – to get an inkling for the impacts that such relentless responsibilities can have on

mental health.” Trouble is, farmers have a reputation for being tough, and learn from an early age to put on a brave face and work through their problems. “I fooled a lot of people,” says Gerry Frieson, a prominent Manitoba farmer who struggled with depression a decade ago and now talks and writes about his recovery. “Looking back, I now recognize it’s ingrained in us that if we just work harder we will get rid of these problems, whether it’s financial stress or depression.” Awareness is half the battle It doesn’t have to be that way. Awareness campaigns by various mental health care stakeholders, for example, have helped to both increase understanding and reduce the stigma of mental health conditions. Treatment methods, too, continue to improve, as has the access to mental health services and programs. “Many more Canadians deal with mental health problems every year than cancer, diabetes and respiratory problems combined,” says Mark Henick, program manager with Mental Health Works, an offshoot of one of Canada’s oldest charities, the Canadian Mental Health Association.

According to Henick, who became a mental health advocate after a passerby stopped him from jumping off a Cape Breton bridge at age 15, most mental health conditions are treatable. “The challenge for many people, especially middle-aged and older men,” he adds, “is to realize mental health issues are normal.” Henick says that realization can make it easier to seek help. Help is available While that help is more accessible for people who live in big cities, where most mental health services are concentrated, the Internet is breaking down the distance barriers to rural regions. Saskatchewan, for example, is the first and so far only Canadian province to offer an online counselling service for depression and anxiety called OnlineTherapyUser.ca. Led by psychologist Dr. Heather Hadjistavropoulos from the University of Regina, the free service notably offers a five-lesson course on how to improve well-being and cope with problems.

Is the next generation ready to take over the farm? Highlights Involve kids in meetings with lender and accountant to build management skills Test leadership abilities by letting kids take over a significant task If parents aren’t ready, develop proposal that addresses emotional and financial concerns Hold regular family meetings or bring in an independent third party Lack of communication single biggest succession planning issue How can you tell if the next generation is ready to take over the farm? Abe Toews, a succession expert with Beyond Wealth Consulting in Regina, Sask., says the best way is to test them. Involve them now “A good litmus test is to consider whether or not Mom and Dad can step away from the farm for three or four months without disrupting the operation,” Toews says. “If the kids can’t rise to the occasion, examine what needs to happen so they can.” He recommends starting to develop management skills by involving them in meetings with your lender and accountant and letting them participate in production planning. It’s critical they understand what the financial statements say. Next step is to test their leadership abilities by letting them take over a significant task that interests them. If you want the secret to a smooth succession, it’s up-front communication. Develop skills and start delegating “There are lots of activities on the farm you can delegate that will be a lot better in younger hands,” Toews says. “The younger generation is generally more adaptable to technology, for example. Farm Credit Canada has some good farm management software available for farmers, so make operating it a project for them.” It’s important to let your children make some mistakes, Toews adds. They won’t always get everything right, but you shouldn’t necessarily jump in and try to fix it. As long as it’s not a catastrophic error, give them the opportunity to figure things out.

Learn to let go Letting go of control of the farm isn’t an easy decision for many farmers, says Diane McKenzie, a rancher and farm succession expert from Warner, Alta. Not only do they fear they won’t have enough money for their retirement, but they’re also hesitant to give up control of their life’s work. That’s why most planners have a tale to tell about a 65-year-old farmer who hopes that this year his dad will finally let him see the books. “The emotional aspects of succession planning seem more complicated for some people than others,” McKenzie says. “It’s a grieving process; they’re grieving the passage of time and their own mortality.”

“Letting go of control of the farm isn’t an easy decision for many farmers”

McKenzie says that if your parents aren’t ready to let go, try to put yourself in their shoes. Develop a step-by-step proposal that addresses both their emotional and financial concerns. Communication key to succession success Talking about uncomfortable issues like money, retirement and death is never easy. That’s why lack of communication between the two generations is the single biggest issue that Toews sees when helping a family with their succession plan. “Mom and Dad grew up in an environment where talking about money wasn’t considered appropriate,” Toews says. “They never saw their parents’ estate plan until the day after their funeral. If you want to distil the secret to a smooth succession plan down to one thing, it would be up-front communications.”

New Meaning of Retirement

Sometimes it’s easier to discuss issues by bringing in an independent third party, a succession planner, to help steer the process and act as a buffer, McKenzie says. Outline expectations clearly Toews suggests having everyone participate in regular family meetings. It’s an opportunity for Mom and Dad to outline what their expectations are for retirement, and non-farming children can share what their expectations are for an inheritance. “The sooner you start doing this, the better,” Toews says. “Some of these planning things take time, so don’t hesitate to start involving your children – even if some of them are still in their teens. At that stage you have no idea whether they’ll be interested in taking over the operation or not. But showing them there is an opportunity for them if they are interested is critical for developing the entrepreneurial spirit they need to become a farmer.” Will there be someone to take over? Farming in Canada is on the cusp of a massive generational shift. Data from the most recent Census of Agriculture [SD1] won’t be available for a while, but in 2011 the oldest operator on 55 per cent of Canadian farms was over 55. Traditionally, the older generation has groomed the younger one to take over by working with them side by side. That doesn’t appear to be happening as much today; the last census showed that only one in seven operators now work on a multi-generational farm (defined as a farm with at least two operators with an age difference of twenty years or more). “The reality is that we have thousands of business owners who want to leave their business in the next five to 10 years,” Toews says. He worries there may not be enough young entrepreneurs ready to take over. “It’s a huge issue and it hasn’t had the attention it deserves.” It’s also an opportunity for young people passionate about farming.

Cattle, hog numbers continue downward trend By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

Cattle numbers across Canada are the lowest in five years. A reduction of .8 per cent in cattle at July 1 from last year puts the Canadian cow herd at the low level of 12.4 million. The herd is down 23.6 per cent from the peak in 2005, two years after mad cow disease hit the country and producers had no export market. No immediate increase in the national herd is evident. Canadian farmers retained 2.6 per cent less breeding stock, a sign of continued herd decline. Heifers, another source of herd expansion, experienced increased slaughter, according to the Statistics Canada survey. The number of farms with cattle was 72,660 — a decrease of almost two per cent. The British Columbia herd increased three per cent to 680,000 head. The Atlantic provinces were up 1.7 per cent for 221,000 head. Quebec saw an increase in cattle of .4 per cent for 1.14 million. The majority of Quebec cattle are dairy animals. The Canadian dairy herd increased .8 per cent to 1.4 million. Saskatchewan’s cattle herd fell 1.1 per cent to 2.6 million with Alberta down 1.2 per cent to just over five million head. The Manitoba herd fell 1.3 per cent to 1.12 mil-

lion. Ontario’s herd dropped 1.85 per cent to 1.61 million. The national hog inventory of 14.2 million was down .4 per cent year over year. Canadian hog exports of 2.7 million fell seven per cent. Saskatchewan, with 1.05 million hogs, was down by 50,000. Only Ontario increased hog numbers Canadian sheep numbers of 1.065 million increased 1.6 per cent. The export numbers fell 4.3 per cent to 4,400 head this year. Saskatchewan has 112,000 sheep, an increase of 4,000. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel. net

Annual global food waste bill equals $1.2 trillion US$ By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express The notion that farmers need to increase food production for a growing population might just be a myth. “Roughly one-third of food produced around the world goes to waste,” Esben Hegsnholt, co-author of a new report on food waste, told the media. The Boston Consulting Group study estimates 1.6 billion tons of food, valued at $1.2 trillion, is wasted every year. Unless something is done to curb waste that loss will reach 2.1 billion tons by 2030. While food waste happens at all steps along the food chain, waste is most pronounced at the start and the end. Waste occurs most in developing countries at the start of the food chain. In developed countries most waste happens in the last stages: retailing and consumption. Hegsnholt says steps can be taken to reduce waste all along the food chain. Main causes of food waste are: • inadequate infrastructure for producer storage and transport • various food groups not working together • lack of awareness among consumers • inefficient supply chain • poorly designed tax policy and regulations Real progress on the matter can only be made through commitment and co-ordination among consumers, government, farmers, institutions and companies, says the study. Tax policy should penalize companies and consumers for food waste and offer incentives for cutting food waste or food recycling The food waste challenge is so great it was included in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

John Deere celebrates centennial of company’s first farm tractor By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Great companies become that way through leadership that adapts to changing conditions. The John Deere Company has been one of those companies where adapting to change and adversity has been a hallmark. John Deere has been around since 1836, first making a big name for a brand of steel plough that prevented dirt from clogging the machine. Most ploughs of that time were wooden or iron and needed frequent stops to unclog the plough shares. Deere had built a market for implements it manuEarly model JD factured but the board, made up of mostly family members, realized in 1912 that a tractor line was eration needed to stay abreast of the competition.

commercially-built tractor. The Waterloo Boy was easier and less expensive to build, selling for $700. A buoyant farm economy and variations of Waterloo Boy models by Deere made the tractor a favourite with farmers. But Henry Ford’s $400 assembly line Fordson in 1917 only cost $400 and outsold the Deere machine. Using original Waterloo Boy company plans in 1924, Deere built a compact powerful model D tractor capable of pulling a three-bottom plough and powered by a two-cylinder engine that could burn any low-grade fuel. The John Deere D caught on, presenting rural America and Canada with the distinctive puck-puck noise as the two cylinders provided power. For almost 30 years, Deere sold the Model D workhorse with 161,000 units sold. Deere became dominant in a market with a slew of tractor makers. The popular Model A was introduced in 1934. The snappy tagline Nothing Runs Like a Deere was first used in 1971 to sell snowmobiles and soon became a company wide slogan. Sources: Successfulfarming.com, JohnDeere.com, and Wikipedia.

Fake meat versus real stuff struggle underway in U.S.A. By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

Cattle producers call it fake beef; developers call it lab-cultured meat. No matter what it is called, the struggle for influence with food regulating agencies that will govern approval has started. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has sought information on development and production of lab cultured meats in a public forum. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association in the U.S. wants that changed. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) should be in charge, the beef group argued. Yet the USDA wasn’t invited to participate even though the USDA has legal responsibility for primary oversight of lab-grown meat. The FDA sought comment on the technology and regulations. Some lab-grown meat advocates believe that USDA oversight is not needed since the lab-grown meat is not harvested from slaughter of animals. Some developers use cells harvested from live animals. The beef producer organization says consumer food safety requirements make inspection with USDA’s lengthy scientific experience in food necessary. At stake is a market for 21 billion pounds of meat annually. If the USDA keeps control, the cattle industry will have some influence over lab meat. While lab-grown meat is still far from being in your neighbourhood grocer, the day is coming. When first developed in 2003, lab-cultured meat cost $330,000 a pound. An Israel company using a new process has cut cost to $363 a pound and plans on reducing cost to between $2.30 and $4.50 a pound. The company plans to have product in some restaurants this fall. 18092PS0 18093PS0

Once lab-grown meat becomes commercially available, the battle will be on for the minds of consumers. Benefits of lab-grown meat include less risk of diseases like salmonella and eColi. no use of antibiotics, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Livestock production accounts for 15 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. Lab meat advocates won’t tell consumers how new use of marginal land used to produce livestock will impact greenhouse gas emissions. Lab meat development received a boost last year when China signed onto a $300 million deal with Israel to develop clean energy and clean meat. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Lynbrook Golf Club Labour Day Tournament The Lynbrook Golf Club held their annual Labour Day Tournament on Sunday Sept 2nd and Monday Sept 3rd starting with back to back 8:00 AM shotgun starts. A total of 48 people played in the event. The Men’s Champion with a two-day total of 137, 5 under par Leighton Bearchell. Leighton was followed by Brett Sentes with a score of 149, and Alf Paul who came in third with a score of 151. The Ladies Championship was won by Heather Person, with a two-Day total of 177. Coming in second in the Championship flight was Debbie Firth with a score of 184. Low net in that flight was Sharon Knittle with a score of 146 and that was two better than Ethel Akins with a 148. The Ladies first flight was won by Adele Owatz with a score of 189 and that was better than Beverly Arnold who came in with a score of 196. The Net side of that draw with won by Elsie Sapach with a score of 147 and that was enough to edge of Chris Simpson. The Men’s 1st Flight was won by Brian Mohninger with a score of 152 and that was two better that Jeff Fowlie who came in with a score of 154. Low net in the Men’s 1st flight was won by Mark Thiele with a 134 and that beat out Mike Fitzsimmons by one as Mike had a 135. The 2nd Flight for the Men was won by Marv Merkel . He had the same score as Al Davie , but Marv’s 163 held up via the retrogression formula. The net side of that draw was won by Brad Jackson with a score of 140 , and that was just enough to edge out Tim Peakman who had a score of 141. The Men’s third flight was won by Ken Jattansingh who had a gross score of 168 and that was one less than Paul Kwan with 169. The net side was won by Ted Swenson with a score of 129 and that beat out Bob Cobbe who forced a 134. Closest to the Pin for the Men on hole # 7 was Leighton Bearchell and closest to the pin for the Ladies was won Debbie Firth on hole # 3.

Local soccer players with big dreams now have a chance to make those dreams a reality, thanks to a new partnership between Moose Jaw Soccer and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer. The two organizations recently announced an agreement to form the Moose Jaw Academy Centre which will be run from Yara Centre starting this fall. According to Jordan Jeffery the Technical Director for Moose Jaw Soccer, “The Whitecaps have a system of academies across Western Canada with one in Saskatoon; they were looking to add another in Saskatchewan and Moose Jaw Soccer and the excellent facility we have in the Yara Centre were a great choice.” The new academy will take players from the under 8 group all the way up to under 18 and will give them top quality training they need to develop and create a pathway to the Whitecaps Boys Academy and Girls Elite programs in Vancouver. “The hope in the community always was that, by building the Yara Centre we would create opportunities for Moose Jaw players to get out of playing in gyms and have chances to develop into elite players. This academy partnership finally gives young players a chance to do just that. It will be a game changer,” said Jeffery. All sessions will be coached in 8-week blocks by Whitecaps Saskatchewan coach Jonathan O’Neill and Moose Jaw Technical Director Jordan Jeffery. “When we have a facility like Yara and give young players good high calibre practice sessions, young players will develop, we will have better grass roots programs and Moose Jaw players will get chances to play at an elite level,” said Jeffery. A good example according to Jeffery is local resident Dorian Zambuchini who recently graduated from the Whitecaps Academy in Saskatoon to join the U of Saskatchewan Huskie program. For more information about registering for Whitecaps Academy and other Moose Jaw Soccer programs, contact Jordan Jeffery at Players listening to their coaches at the Whitemoosejawsoccer@gmail.com or caps camp this past summer at the Yara Centre. call: 306-693-1757.

Bearchell, Pearson win Lynbrook Labour Day Tourney Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

In competitive golf, playing a two-day tournament and having a substantial lead heading into the second day of competition, Heather Pearson and Leighton Bearchel, relished their position heading into play on Labour Day at the Lynbrook Golf and Country Club’s annual Labour Day tournament. Both came out as championship flight winners. For Pearson in the women’s draw, it was a five-shot lead after Sunday’s opening round – both days were sunny and clear, if not a bit hazy and windy – and seven shots overall with her 177 total. “I golfed a little better than I have been, so it all worked out nice,” she said. “I shot a pretty good round yesterday and had a little bit higher round today, my putting wasn’t as good today, but I was happy with both rounds.” Knowing that unless her game came apart completely, a tournament win was in the cards and made the second round that much more fun. “It was comfortable,” she said. “And the girls I played with today were lots of fun, so it kept it pretty good out there.” For Bearchell, it was all about getting in some golf before he heads back to Minot State University for his senior year next week (see sidebar). And man, if his scores over the Labour Day weekend were any indication, he’s in for a banner season. Bearchell shot rounds of two-under 69 and three-under 68 for an impressive 137 total, good enough for a 12-shot victory. “This tournament was a confidence builder, it was good to come out and get the competitive juices flowing a little bit,” Bearchell said. “It was kind of spontaneous, I signed

Bearchell set for senior season at Minot State

Heather Pearson and Leighton Bearchell were the championship flight winners from the Lynbrook Golf and Country Club Labour Day tournament over the weekend. up the day before... Then I got paired up with some pretty good guys and it was a pretty good time out there.” While the Lynbrook doesn’t have the reputation of being a difficult course, carding five-under is still an impressive two- round showing. “It’s good, but you still have to hit good shots,” Bearchell said. “This course is definitely easy, but you have to put it in the right spot still. Overall, I was pretty happy with how I was hitting the ball and I didn’t make too many mistakes, so it’s good to be back at this.”

6th Hole-in-One at Lynbrook Golf Club this year The Lynbrook Golf Club recorded the 6th Hole-in-One of the season early Friday morning on the newly lengthened Par 3 hole #5. Jeff Ma used a 17 degree utility for the 185 yard shot. This was Jeff’s first Hole-n-One and it was witnessed by Danny Rongavilla.

Carl Jorgenson tournament cancelled Moose Jaw Express Staff

One of the most popular events on the local golf calendar, the Carl Jorgenson Par-27 Charity Tournament has suddenly fallen by the wayside. The annual Lynbrook Golf and Country Club event – which features a match play format and players hitting three balls each from 150, 100 and 50 yards out, with the lowest score advancing – used to find its draw filled to capacity in under an hour on the day registration opened. This year, registration closed with the draw, 18 golfers

short for the minimum number of players. As a result, Lynbrook club captain Maurice Schmidt decided to cancel the event rather than run a sub-par tournament. This isn’t the end for the Canadian Cancer Society fundraiser named for Jorgenson, a long-time member who passed away due to the disease – tournament organizers vow they’ll try again next year, hoping for much more interest and a quicker response from potential players after the year off.

By his own admission, Leighton Bearchell is looking for far better things heading into his senior season with the Minot State University Beavers men’s golf team. After a junior campaign where he shot an 82.29 scoring average and his best round of the season was a 77 in the Bemidji State Invitational – where he finished 36th overall, his top placing of 2017-18 – Bearchell is aiming far higher as he closes out his college golf career when he returns to school. “I think I have a lot to prove, honestly,” said Bearchell, a marketing and management major. “The last two seasons haven’t been really good. I feel like this summer I’ve put in a lot of work and I’m looking forward to seeing where I’m at.” Minot State plays as a Division II school in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference, featuring teams from throughout the north central United States. Last season, the Beavers finished sixth overall through seven regular-season tournaments and seventh out of 10 teams in the 2018 NSIC championship tournament. The courses the NSIC plays on tend to carry a higher level of difficulty than most Bearchell plays on during the summer, which means shooting low requires plenty of precision golf. “They’re a lot different that what you have around here, they’re narrow and it’s tougher to hit fairways, but you get rewarded if you hit good golf shots just like any other golf course,” he explained. Now that he’s had two seasons to get used to the entire collegiate golf process, Bearchell has some pretty simple goals for his final season. “I want to win this year, man,” he said with a wry laugh. “More consistency, and it’s more of a team aspect in college than a single thing, so it’s all about helping out the boys, and I really want to be a part of helping us have a great season.”

Minor football kicks off new season by Randy Palmer

The Moose Jaw Vikings couldn’t have asked for a better start to the Moose Jaw Minor Football League Pee Wee season early on this month. A 28-0 lead at halftime and 49-0 final score against the Estevan Chargers featured a wide variety of offensive touches and the kind of precision blocking that will lead to big things down the road. “We’ve been stressing to them all week that we just have to do the work,” said Vikings head coach and league president Scott Montgomery. “There’s no real secrets, there’s no shortcuts and this last week in practice they really stepped it up and picked it up and it just showed. We were winning the one-on-one battles and that’s what it takes.” The Pee Wee division traditionally sees a lot of players putting on the pads for the first time, and for six players in the Vikings line-up, that first game saw them score their first points of their career. Players like 10-year-old Keaton Belsher and Alec Tangan, who was playing his first-ever organized football game. And Johnny Johnson, a hulking tailback who crossed the goalline for the first time in three years of MJMFL play. All can expect many more trips to the endzone in the future. To say the least: the Pee Wee division features seven teams, including squads from Assiniboia and Estevan along with two teams from Weyburn. Four teams are playing in Bantam, including Estevan Swift Current and Weyburn alongside the Moose Jaw Razorbacks. The biggest growth, though, has come

in the youngest age groups, with 30 players in Atom and 44 in Learn to Play. A big reason for that is one of the primary focusses of the entire minor football league: player safety is of utter importance, with coaches at the lowest age groups teaching players how to hit and take a hit properly from the first practice on. That results in far fewer serious injuries and a much safer sport. Montgomery said, “When the game is taught properly and the coaches are trained the game is safe as it can be in a collisions sport.” Ideally, it all means for some good games and solid competition through the remainder of the season. In other Pee Wee league action from opening day, the Assiniboia Rockets defeated the Moose Jaw Mustangs 3412 and the Weyburn Ravens took a 48-6 win over the Moose Jaw Lions. In action from Sept. 7-8, the Vikings edged the Weyburn Eagles 7-6, Assiniboia took a 40-6 win over Estevan and the Ravens downed the Mustangs 22-0. In Bantam league play, the Moose Jaw Razorbacks took a default win over the Estevan Oilers when Estevan couldn’t field enough players; and the Swift Current Steelers tied the Weyburn Falcons 7-7. In league play from Sept. 7-8, Weyburn defeated Estevan 45-0 and the Razorbacks downed Swift Current 26-0.

Estevan’s James Lewis gets away from Moose Jaw Vikings tacklers for a solid gain.

Generals dominate in pre-season opener Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The first game of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League pre-season might be an indication that the Moose Jaw Generals are in for an impressive season. After falling behind 1-0 to the Swift Current Legionnaires in the first period, the Generals poured on the offence in the second, scoring four times before clamping down on defence in the third, on their way to a 4-1 victory at Mosaic Place. “In the first period we were scratching our heads there for awhile, I guess it’s exhibition and you’ll have that happen, but we got moving in the right direction and I thought played really well,” said Generals assistant coach Kevin Moore. “We looked a lot better, there’s Generals defenceman Jeron Kletzel scrambles to still a few bad habits but that’s what exhibition is for, block a shot in front of goaltender Reece Hodson.

clean it up and improve.” Generals defenceman Jeron Kletzel led the offence with a goal and two assists, with his marker early in the third an impressive diving shot that eluded the Legionnaires goaltender. “Yeah, that was a good one,” Kletzel said. “I’m not used to scoring too many goals but I thought that was good for my confidence.” Jake Palmer, Evan Sare and Ben Peterson also scored for Moose Jaw in the second period, which saw the Generals outshoot Swift Current 24-6. The Generals didn’t let the Legionnaires have any hope of a comeback, either, holding them without a shot through the first 10 minutes of the third and only three through the entire period. That kind of a performance was crucial for a team that managed only nine wins last year and missed the playoffs.

Colts pull away late in hard-fought win over Tornadoes Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Peacock Tornadoes coach Bert Redstone wasn’t kidding when he said people would look at the score from their season-opening Moose Jaw High School Football League contest against Swift Current and wonder how the stats could possibly be from the same game. The Tornadoes dropped a 21-6 decision to the Colts on Sept. 8 at Gutheridge Field, despite putting down 286 yards rushing and 307 yards of total offence – nearly double the total production put together by Swift Current. But that’s how it goes sometimes, and it left both teams in a positive frame of mind heading into the rest of the season. “You want to get a win the first week and to start the season like that, it’s nice to beat Peacock,” said Colts coach Derek Murdoch. “They’re a good team and we had a lot of respect for them coming in and they played really well. In fact, they probably feel like they left some points on the board obviously and we kind of hung in there and did the old ‘bend, don’t break’ thing and dodged some bullets. “But we moved the ball well on offence and were able to get some things done on defence, but we’ll keep working at it and trying to improve.” Rhett Vavra caught seven passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns to lead Swift Current, who led 7-0 at half before adding a single major late in each of the final two quarters. Kyle Krause scored their other major on a twoyard run in the third quarter. “It feels great, especially since we beat them last year, it gives us a little more confidence that we have a com-

and not quite completing it,” Tornadoes coach Bert Redstone said. “We knew coming in that we have a very young team. We’re starting a bunch of Grade 9s and Grade 10s, a lot of guys who haven’t played football before. So they come into their first game and their eyes are wide open and it takes a little while to get rolling... then we just couldn’t get that extra yard or two. “It was one of those weird games where you look at the stats and it was 21-6 and you wonder how that happened.” Drake Luebke scored Peacock’s lone major with 48 seconds left in the game, hauling in a 10-yard pass from Dallas Lister. Lister finished the game with 20 carries for 112 yards; Kayde Shymko has 22 attempts for 174 yards.

Tornadoes quarterback Dallas Lister didn’t have a lot of running room against Swift Current. petition advantage and that’s a load off our backs for sure,” Vavra said. “It was a close game, they had a tough defence and a good offence, so it was really anybody’s game at any point.” The statistical anomaly largely came out of the number of solid Peacock drives that stalled on short yardage deep in Swift Current territory. Add on the number of near misses when it came to long passing plays and the potential for a far different game was most certainly there. “It was just so close, so many close chances, just a pass slightly behind on a screen, those deep passes right there

Warriors split pre-season set with Medicine Hat

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors saw a split pre-season with the Medicine Hat Tigers on the weekend. With a 5-2 win at Mosaic Place on Sept. 8, the Warriors saw a score four times on the power play. The following night, a younger line-up couldn’t find the back of the net and the Tribe dropped a 3-0 decision. In the opening contest, veteran forward Ryan Peckford scored twice while Peyton McKenzie, Drae Gardiner and Tate Popple all had single markers. Daemon Hunt picked up three assists; Tristan Langan added two helpers. “It was good to get the puck moving around and bury a few goals, get our power play moving forward,” said Peckford, who at 19 is one of the elder statesmen in the Warriors forward corps. “I think we were just making the plays work, doing the same things we were doing in practice and we were able to make it come together, so it was good.” The one ever-so-slight drawback to such power play success is that the Warriors’ even strength offensive output was less than ideal. It’s something Peckford said the team will be working on, as is the case with many areas of play coming out of pre-season games. “We were drawing penalties and capitalizing on the power plays, but there are always things we can work on and improve as well,” Peckford said. “We just want to correct a few little things; there are some things in our systems that we’re still messing up a little bit, so we’ll try and clear all that up for the regular season.

So we’ll be ready to go when it comes together.” Peckford – the teams’ second highest returning scorer with 20 goals and 49 points in 2017-18 – will undoubtedly be looked to for the kind of offence he showed Friday throughout the season. “I’m one of the older guys this year so I want to lead by example on the ice, work hard and do my best and show the young guys the Warrior way,” he said. Adam Evanoff went the distance in goal, turning aside 23 shots to take the win. Bryan Lockner and Cole Sillinger scored for the Tigers. Mads Sogaard stopped 31 shots in the loss. The next night in Medicine Hat, the Warriors didn’t dress either Peckford or overager Langan, and with Jett Woo, Josh Brook and Justin Almeida all at NHL training camps, that made for an exceptionally young line-up. They still held the fort for two periods before the Tigers scored three times in the third, including an empty netter. Gary Hayden, Josh Williams and Dawson Heathcote all scored for Medicine Hat. Brodan Salmond made 38 saves in his first start in a Warriors uniform; the Warriors fired 36 shots at Garin Bjorklund and Kaeden Lane, who split the shutout. The Warriors are back in pre-season action this weekend with a home-and-home set with the Brandon Wheat Kings, with the second game on Sunday, Sept. 16 at Mosaic Place with a special start time of 4 p.m.

Cyclones air show leads to dominant win over Vikings Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When Central Cyclones quarterback Ethan Johnson put together the fifth-best all-time single-season passing yardage total as a Grade 11 last season, the odds were pretty good that his senior year was going to be a special one. After the first game of the 2018 Moose Jaw High School Football League season, ‘special’ might just be an understatement. Johnson completed 19 of 22 pass attempts for 330 yards and four touchdowns as the Cyclones took a 38-0 victory over the Vanier Vikings in the season-opening contest on Sept. 8 at Gutheridge Field. Not only did Johnson make all those throws, he spread the ball around in amazing fashion, hitting eight different receivers in the process. “He’s a special kid,” said Central coach Colin Belsher. “He has a big arm, but his with his strength, he’s just so smart. He reads the defence and what they give him and he’s able to spread the ball around. I think all our receivers had big catches today and multiple catches and that’s a tribute to all the work he’s put in during the season and in the off-season.” C.J. Vincent caught two touchdown passes, scoring from nine and 12 yards out. “He’s an amazing player, I see him going to some university and playing,” Vincent said. “He has all the traits you want in a captain, he gets the ball to everyone, not just myself and (fellow Grade 12) Crozier (Holmes); it’s everywhere and he’s great at that.” Holmes and Matthew Dyck also had TD catches, while Dawson Pearce ran in Central’s final major from 17 yards

were great.” The Cyclones defence was also outstanding, as the Vikings were held to only six first downs and 76 yards of total offence. Zander Montgomery led their offence with five carries for 43 yards. “We hung around pretty well in the first quarter, but they’re just so veteran all across the board and I think the difference in experience obviously shows up in week one,” said Vanier coach Ryan Gottselig. “They’re just miles ahead of us right now, but hopefully we can get there... Our run defence was reasonable at times, so there were some bright spots for sure, but we just have to keep getting better.”

Central Cyclones quarterback Ethan Johnson put together an outstanding season-opening performance. out. Pearce led all rushers with 10 carries for 75 yards; the Cyclones also ended up with 215 yards on the ground and 558 in total. “These kids have put in a lot of time these last few weeks and that’s what I just finished saying to them, all that hard work pays off, the reward is what we put on the field,” Belsher said. “I think the best part is that we have a lot of guys on the field and they stepped up and play well. I know our Grade 12s, our veterans were going to play well, but it was all those other kinds, those Grade 10s and 9s who played their hearts out and filled their roles that

Fall Camping Offered in Saskatchewan Provincial Parks

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Assault and Battery There is an assault on marriages today. Did you know it is the plan of the enemy to bring division and death to marriages resulting in separation, divorce, family breakdown, and domestic violence? A friend’s friend lost her life only days ago due to domestic violence. Another friend’s friend had a big fight resulting in extreme threats of unhealthy behavior towards her. This is going on in our homes and in our neighbors’ homes. Let’s not sweep this under the rug anymore, brothers and sisters! Be honest with yourself: do you treat your spouse with the love of Jesus? Is your home full of peace or strife? Do you have constant fights, arguments, tension, sadness or unrest? If you are a follower of Jesus, it is time to take responsibility for what is going on in your home. For too long, we have put on a holy smile; gone to church and pretended all is well when everything is falling apart behind closed doors. Maybe you didn’t grow up with a godly example of a love-filled marriage and you don’t have the tools to make your marriage great. You may look around and not see many marriages that you could emulate to improve your relationship; or you may just think it’s not worth using your time and energy. But have you ever thought what the purpose of marriage is? Mistakenly, it is not just for the reproduction of the human race or a healthy and protected sex life. Satan knows the power behind a marriage that is unified, full of unconditional love and set on a course to follow Jesus. This is why he is determined to take as many marriages down as he can. It has been suggested in “A Purpose-Driven Marriage” article, that “...marriage is to be a human object lesson of the divine relationship between Christ and believers.” I often laugh about the fact that marriage is an institution created by God – not the fact that God created it but that it is certainly a place of education; sometimes also known as “The School of Hard Knocks.” The article also mentioned that marriage is a laboratory – a place where God’s love can be developed in us. “God builds certain qualities within our lives by putting us in situations that make it difficult to show these qualities. God is using each of you to shape the other person more and more into the image of Jesus.” Companionship, enjoyment, completeness, and protection are all valid purposes for marriage as is the exploration of Christ and His love for the Church similarly as the husband loves his wife. Paul Evdokimov, noted Orthodox theologian, suggests this about marriage: “...for their coming together has this effect, it diffuses and commingles the bodies of both. And as one who has cast ointment into oil, who has made the whole one, so in truth it is also here.’ ‘...Marriage is the intimate union of two lives, ‘‘the sacrament of love.’” Marriage can be the most hurtful relationship to be in but on the converse, marriage can be the most rewarding relationship one can ever have. The design of marriage encourages deep connection and intimacy of two hearts intertwined; becoming one flesh. What an amazing molding together that is potentially brilliant when two live in love, unity and serve God and each other with all their hearts. Of all the bumps and bruises Hubby and I have lived through, I am increasingly thankful that we have each other and have persisted through very difficult times; there is nothing like growing older together.

Camping season is not over in Saskatchewan with fall camping being offered in over 20 provincial parks. “Fall in Saskatchewan’s parks is truly a special time. Families can take in the warm sunny days and crisp nights around the campfire, all while being surrounded by the natural beauty of the changing season.” Campsites can be reserved in advance at Bronson Forest, Buffalo Pound, Cypress Hills, Duck Mountain, Great Blue Heron, Makwa Lake, Moose Mountain, Rowan’s Ravine and The Battlefords Provincial Parks. Many of these parks offer access to full amenities throughout September. The sites can be booked through the online reservation system at www.saskparks.goingtocamp.com or by calling 1-855-737-7275. By reserving in advance, visitors are guaranteed their chosen campsite will be available upon arrival. Campgrounds that are available exclusively on a first-come, first-served self-registration basis are listed on Sask Parks fall camping page at www.tourismsaskatchewan.com/places-to-go/provincial-parks/camping/fall-camping.

Archeologists aim to uncover secrets of Franklin expedition in ship’s cabins OTTAWA _ Canadian archeologists are set to spend two weeks exploring the wreck of HMS Erebus to uncover even more secrets from the ill-fated Franklin expedition. The ship, along with HMS Terror, disappeared during an exploration through the Arctic in 1846, leaving the fate of captain Sir John Franklin and his crew a mystery for more than 150 years. Inuit guides helped Parks Canada archeologists find the Erebus in 2014, and the Terror was found two years later about 100 kilometres away. Canada took ownership of the ships from the United Kingdom in April.

Underwater archeologists are aiming to recover artifacts from the Erebus’s living quarters, possibly including Franklin’s cabin. Officials hope the cabins might hold ships logs or captain’s records that could help answer questions about where the ships had been and what happened to them. Archeologists also hope to collect images, videos and scans of HMS Terror to help craft plans to physically explore the ship in the future, but that work will depend on weather and ice conditions. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Cosby’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star vandalized with graffiti LOS ANGELES _ Bill Cosby’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was vandalized by someone who scrawled the words ``serial rapist’’ with a marker pen. Los Angeles police found the marred sidewalk star early Tuesday, City News Service reported. The graffiti was similar to vandalism that occurred in 2014 and has since been removed. Cosby was convicted in Philadelphia this year of aggravated

indecent assault on a former Temple University employee who is among many women who have stepped forward to accuse the comedian of sexual misconduct. Cosby has denied any wrongdoing. Cosby’s star, dedicated in 1977, is a short distance down Hollywood Boulevard from President Donald Trump’s star, which has been vandalized twice with heavy tools that caused significant damage.

Trump’s star was unveiled in 2007, recognizing his work on the reality TV show ``The Apprentice.’’ It has also been repaired. The Walk of Fame is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which has never removed a star. © 2018 The Canadian Press

B.C. judge says sasquatch lawsuit has ‘no reasonable prospect of success’ By Beth Leighton - THE CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER _ A British Columbia court has thrown out a lawsuit that claimed the provincial government has committed a ``dereliction of duty’’ by failing to protect the sasquatch as a threatened or endangered species. Todd Standing, who describes himself as a wildlife expert and film maker who has spent years studying the sasquatch, launched the suit in January. He claimed officials within the B.C. fish and wildlife branch don’t acknowledge the existence of sasquatch and infringed on his rights as they relate to Please include the Moose Jaw Health Foundation in your estate plan to help your community for generations to come.

his concerns regarding the ``primate, also known as bigfoot.’’ In response, the province called the lawsuit ``frivolous,’’ ``an abuse of process,’’ lacking ``an air of reality,’’ and applied to have the case dismissed, saying Standing’s statements of fact are ultimately incapable of proof. In his judgement posted online Tuesday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Ball finds no issue with B.C.’s lack of sasquatch recognition, ruling that no duty was owed to Standing to support a view on the existence of any creature. Ball finds none of Standing’s legal rights have been breached by the province and approves the application to reject the lawsuit, ruling the action has no reasonable prospect of success. © 2018 The Canadian Press

I heartily agree with Dr. Heidinger’s column in this issue, “Good Friends can be good for your health”. Relationships are a multibreed where spouses and immediate family should take pre-eminence over friendships, if you have them, but I, too, believe that friendships are a necessity for our health Joan Ritchie and social well-being. EDITOR Although I do not believe we as human beings are meant to be buddy-buddy with every John Doe, as unique individuals ourselves, we are drawn to those of like-kind; people with the same goals, ambitions or whatever – a commonality. A good analogy is with the body; the nose is not meant to be next to the armpit but has its place smackdab in the middle of the ears, eyes and mouth. That’s where it fits. I love the wisdom of the scriptures that say, “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother,” (Proverbs 18:24 NIV), along with the admonishment, “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harms.” (Proverbs 13:20 NIV) In the context of these proverbs, it seems that although we may have many acquaintances, there is a certain kind of friend that offers greater loyalty and sticks closer than a brother. We all know this to be true; many have been betrayed by individuals who have shown themselves as a friend, ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing.’ As well, it seems there is a differentiate that separates those who walk with the wise and those who are a companion of fools. I’ll let you make that discretion in your circles of influence. Wouldn’t you rather grow in wisdom than suffer consequences at the hand of the foolish? Friendships aren’t for the weak of heart; they are birthed through time, like dating. Developing relationships takes great effort. It seems we may make immediate judgements with individuals on an occasional basis, but friendships are developed and proven through time. Although I love people for who they are and embrace them as they come, I consider myself so blessed to have a core group of individuals who I consider friends. Although I have only a few lifelong friendships that were developed years ago, I am still in the friend-making business and growing my circle of influence in the pursuit of my greater well-being. I always knew that friends put the fun in relationships, but if they can make me heathier, the more the better!

Labour shortage is the ‘new norm’ that will last a decade: BDC economist says By David Paddon - THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO _ Canada’s small and mid-sized companies must find ways to adapt to a ``new norm’’ of worker shortages that will likely persist for a decade, says Pierre Cleroux, chief economist for the Business Development Bank of Canada. ``They represent about 50 per cent of the Canadian economy. Also, they are very important in smaller communities.’’ The BDC’s survey of 1,208 people from small and medium-sized businesses, with at least $500,000 in annual sales, found 39 per cent of them were having difficulties hiring the types of new workers they required. Cleroux says the recent strength of the economy is one reason for the trend but the bigger issue is that the supply of younger work-

ers is barely keeping up with the number of older people who are retiring. ``A lot of people think this is only temporary,’’ Cleroux said. “They have to change the way they manage their human resources.’’ The strategies will vary depending on factors such as location and the number of employees in the company, he said, but noted that businesses would benefit from doing more to promote their corporate image. Only 24 per cent of the respondents to the BDC’s telephone survey said they were investing more to improve their image. By contrast, 35 per cent said their business was changing compensation policies in response to labour shortage, 40 per cent were hiring younger employees and 43

per cent indicated they were hiring less-qualified workers. Other strategies cited were: recruiting retired workers (33 per cent), using employment agencies (22 per cent) and recruiting immigrants (18 per cent). BDC _ which specializes in financing solutions such as commercial lending and venture capital for startups _ says the labour shortage is hampering Canada’s economic competitiveness. The shortage was most acute with companies with from 10 to 99 employees, where more than half of respondents indicated it was ``difficult to hire’’ new workers and less than a one-quarter said it was ``easy to hire.’’ © 2018 The Canadian Press

Fewer living paycheque to paycheque but more overwhelmed by debt: survey TORONTO _ An annual survey of Canadian employees suggests that a smaller percentage live paycheque to paycheque compared with last year. The Canadian Payroll Association says its 2018 survey found that 44 per cent of working Canadians reported it would be at least somewhat difficult to meet their financial obligations if their paycheque was delayed by even a single week. That’s down from 47 per cent last year. Countering these positive gains, the association says the percentage of respondents who reported feeling at least somewhat overwhelmed by debt increased to 40 per cent nationally, up from 35 per cent in last year’s survey. The online survey containing more than a doz-

en questions was conducted for the association by Framework Partners from June 22 to Aug. 1. The number of responses varied widely, depending on the question, with a total of 5,074 responses to the question about a one-week delay in paycheque and 3,809 responding to the question about being overwhelmed by debt. The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population. © 2018 The Canadian Press
