Winning both the Job Creation award and Business of the Year, Penna’s Welding stole the show at during last week’s Chamber of Commerce annual MJBEX Awards. Travis Penna, current owner of the family business, said he felt privileged to have been included in a list of such impressive nominees gathered. His acceptance speech joked that he was promised he wouldn’t have to speak so much, but the wins did mean a lot to him and his company. “We’re just honored to be recognized in the group of businesses that are in the room tonight,” said Penna. “We’re proud to be part of that group and it’s an honor to receive the awards.” Penna’s Welding began with Penna’s father, John, in the early 80s, and Penna’s Welding has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce for just over a year now. This is their first nomination for the MJBEX Awards, and it went very well for them. “It’s been an awesome experience working with [the Chamber], and Rob and Heather have been great to work with,” said Penna. “They definitely created a lot of opportunities for meeting like-minded people. . .” Penna feels as though the awards presented to them will be an asset in their continued goal of collecting excellent employees. “It’s not so much about the marketing or advertising — it just helps us to be more recognized in the community and attract a higher caliber of employees,” said Penna.

Provincial Budget Strikes The Right Balance MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

Following the release of a Provincial Budget, I always anticipate feedback from stakeholders and constituents. The 2019-20 provincial budget was no different as it represented the fulfilment of our government’s 3-year plan to reduce our reliance on non-renewable resource revenues and bring the budget back to balance. Many have expressed their appreciation for a balanced budget with no new taxes or tax increases. This signals to them that we have found the right balance between keeping taxes low and providing quality services for our children, families, and seniors; the right balance between important investments in urban and rural Saskatchewan; and the right balance for building our economy and creating jobs. I was pleased to stand in the Legislature during the Budget debate to express that support for this important document. While there are no new taxes, no tax increases, and the education property tax remains unchanged, this budget includes record funding for health, education, and highway safety. Health care is very important to our government, and this is reflected in the budget. There will be increased investment on targeted mental health and addiction initiatives, the largest commitment ever to mental health services in our province. Parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder will receive more support as individualized funding for children under age six increases from $4,000 to $6,000 annually. Services for families and friends providing care to someone with Dementia will also be expanded. Funding has doubled for the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan to provide their First Link Services.

The new joint-use school for Moose Jaw has been the topic of many enthusiastic conversations. It is encouraging that over 100 people attended an information meeting to discuss the future of this exciting project to replace Empire, Westmount, St. Mary and Sacred Heart Schools. In addition to capital projects, Saskatchewan’s 27 school divisions will receive $1.9 billion in school operating funding for the 2019-20 school year, an increase of $26.2 million over last year’s budget. The Education budget also includes an increase for public libraries, bringing total library funding to $11.2 million. Rural Saskatchewan residents and businesses contribute in a huge way to our economy. Efficient wireless service is needed for them to continue to do that. Rural communities will have better wireless services through continuing improvements to coverage. Enhanced coverage helps connect everyone from the farm to the city, and we are going to keep working to improve our wireless networks in Saskatchewan. The Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce has indicated that they are happy with the way the new provincial budget was presented and feels that it is moving Saskatchewan in a good direction. The Right Balance maintains the province’s AAA credit rating and, more importantly, keeps our economy strong so we can continue to increase investment in health, education, and infrastructure to make life better for all the people of our province. On an additional note; I want to acknowledge and thank people from across the province who attended and supported the recent Regina Rally Against the Carbon Tax. This was the largest truck convoy ever organized anywhere in the world and served an opportunity to stand up for the industries that drive growth in our province. It was encouraging to see thousands of people standing together to say NO to the federal government’s harmful anti-pipeline and anti-tanker bills, and NO to the Trudeau carbon tax. Your Saskatchewan Party government will continue to use every tool at our disposal to challenge the federal government’s imposition of this tax. We will keep standing up for you, your family and your job, for pipelines, for market access and most certainly against the job-killing Trudeau carbon tax.

Nebraska floods to help local cattle prices By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express March flooding in Nebraska should help support Canadian cattle prices for the next year. Flooding caused by early March rains, snow and cyclone winds came when EXPRESS 70 per cent of calving was complete. Up to 10 per cent of the calf crop was lost. An estimated one million head of cattle were lost to flooding and the blizzard storm — amounting to 60 per cent of the cow herd. U.S. cattle numbers were just starting last year to recover from 1950s lows after a decade of drought in major cattle producing states. The usual price cycle’s down trend began last fall with lower prices. Even though the Nebraska cow/calf herd is less than two per cent of the national herd, the herd re-building needed in Nebraska will affect the national price as females are withheld from the market. Ironically, February flooding in Australia killed 500,000 cattle that had survived years of drought.

Local businesses showcase products, services at Fourth Business Expo By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Local businesses had an opportunity to showcase operations at the fourth annual Business Expo with dozens taking the chance. Ceanna Bruce was among the many repeat exhibitors in her third year here with Student Works Painting, a Western Canadian franchise. “We try to hit a home show in every major centre to show people that we’re here,” said the third-year accounting degree student. “I love the home show. “It’s amazing to reach out to people and meet people and the people you meet here and the relationships you build often come through in the summer.” Bruce will have no student debt after graduation, courtesy of the painting franchise. One of the new businesses on the block was 4 Plants Indoor Gardening, specializing in hydroponic gardening. Operator Kim White opened in November to capitalize on the legal home growing of cannabis. “Moose Jaw is supporting us really well,” said White. “We offer everything to grow indoors as well as items to grow outdoors – grow tents, nutrients, lighting, all accessories.”

Demand is high with items back ordered for two months sometimes. “The whole hydroponic market did not expect as many sales as we have.” About half their business is cannabis related. “We have tonnes of vegetable growers – micro green hydroponic vegetables, lettuce, herbs.” Brett Daly of Regina’s World Financial Group was live streaming world curling to show his group’s curling sponsorship. The financial education firm used the Business Expo to expand to Moose Jaw. “We’re finding a lot of people whether they’re just coming out of school, near retirement or retired, are looking for that education on how money works.” His group offers a one-stop shop to money solutions and works with debt education. “Everybody has debt. We teach what the difference is between good debt and bad debt, solutions on how to get out of it” on the basis that you are a monthly bill that gets paid first. Rob Clark, CEO of the Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce, said the expo is all about promoting business. “We have just about everything you want here — the new phone company, assisted living places, hot tubs, barbecues,” he said. “Some home offices here need to be promoted. It gives them an opportunity to associate and network with the public.” This year to build traffic at the expo, they brought in a $1 million digital invisible vault, operated by a Calgary company. Visitors guessed the seven numbers that open the vault. A successful guess wins the million-dollar pot. “There’s lots of traffic here,” he pointed to the steady line waiting to guess. The Business Expo is produced by three partners: the Exhibition Company, Kinsmen Club and the Chamber of Commerce.

MMM…I’m thinking about Easter and chocolate right now… Many years ago during the Easter season, I saw a chocolate bunny with a note attached saying, “Let my people go!” I thought it was a cute analogy, considering that Easter is a time when children of all ages indulge in eating chocolate bunnies by the numbers, and there are very few left after the celebration. In no way did my Joan Ritchie mind avert to it being an isEDITOR sue of racial discrimination at all but rather a possible biblical reference where Moses told Pharaoh, “Let my people go!” Last week, another chocolate incident took place with people screaming “discrimination.” I’m not going to chocolate coat my conversation…I think the discrimination issue has really gone beyond logic. A medley of three chocolate ducks appeared together for sale in a particular across-border store–each is named: Crispy (milk chocolate); Fluffy (white chocolate) and Ugly (dark chocolate). To assume there is a correlation between the colour of the dark chocolate named ugly as a reference to certain individuals is just that, an assumption, and not based upon fact but based upon general unproven observations and reports. Could it be that the reference was made to the ‘ugly’ ducking children’s fable? Let me remind you that the “ugly” duckling turned into a beautiful swan. In the discussion of chocolate, I really don’t understand how individuals can equate this to discrimination? In all truthfulness, people of all skin tones and ethnicities, including Caucasians, can and are discriminated against in certain instances but when you know who you are on the inside, no matter what colour your chocolate is, you won’t take offence. Yes, there are racists among us and of every skin tone but just chalk their ignorance up as gone to seed. Let’s consider the white chocolate duck…maybe a fairskinned person could feel discriminated against because of the paleness of the chocolate in reference to their complexion, too. And coined “Fluffy” …are they saying that Caucasians are fluffier, or in other words fatter? And what about the issue that came to light last week regarding some minorities wanting the Winnipeg Jets “whiteout” fan frenzy to stop? Is there no logic left in this world…Winnipeg + Winter Storm = Whiteout conditions? Personally, I think the reasoning was brilliant to introduce whiteout fan frenzy conditions during the playoffs in support of their team. There are many opportunities in life to take offence…If someone looks at you the wrong way and you perceive a negativity towards you even though it might be far from the truth, you could be offended. If a person you know is walking toward you and doesn’t acknowledge you because they were deep in thought and didn’t see you, you could be offended too. Let me put it to you this way. Everything is not always about you… In consideration of your Easter celebration, take chocolate to heart and indulge, no matter what colour it might be!

Young entrepreneurs turn “rebellion” into success Larissa Kurz

Brodie Evans and Cody Dixon, the pair that founded Centaurus Construction, didn’t see themselves as entrepreneurs when they started their business four years ago; but the Chamber of Commerce absolutely did, awarding them with the Young Entrepreneur award at last night’s MJBEX Awards. “What it means to be recognized as an entrepreneur. . . it’s one of those feelings that’s hard to explain; unless you’re an entrepreneur, you won’t know. But you know, it’s great to be recognized for your hard work,” said Evans. “We’re a team at it, it’s a team atmosphere and we all made [this award] happen and it feels good.” “We kind of came into it being carpenters that were sick of our bosses basically, just wanted to do our own thing,” said Dixon. “So, it started out as a rebellion for us and turned into, you know, a self-sustaining opportunity.” The two were shocked and pleased to be called up for the award and are looking to use the momentum to continue providing excellence in the future. “We’re a young company and we feel like it’s fuel for us to move forward and grow, so we’re excited for the future,” said Evans. “We’re thankful for the Moose Jaw Chamber and for the community of Moose Jaw for everything that they’ve done for us.”

Dixon feels they set themselves apart by providing a good service and supplementing their name with hard work. “I think every day we strive to do quality work. We don’t cut corners,” said Dixon. “Even when things got tough, we just kept grinding her out and doing quality work. And so I think that that’s part of what separates us from some of the other companies.”

Rosie’s on River Street takes the People’s Choice Award

Larissa Kurz The downtown restaurant proved it has a loyal following at the MJBEX Awards, as Rosie’s on River Street was presented with the People’s Choice Award after all the votes were tallied. The category was open to public voting online to express who they felt should be recognized for their engagement with the community and loyalty to their business. Over 4,800 votes were cast while the poll was open, during the two days leading up until the awards started at 7pm. Rosie’s won the title and managing partner Chris Schubert accepted the award, with a group of fellow Rosie’s staff. “It’s really great to win an award and that’s voted on by the people of Moose Jaw,” said Schubert. “And in general, it’s just an honor to be included with the rest of all of these amazing companies in Moose Jaw.” He feels as though the online presence that Rosie’s has played a huge part in the win, as well as the dedicated and connected staff. “We have quite a loyal following and our staff are all pretty connected online too, so they all got their followers to vote for us,” said Schubert. “Yeah, it definitely was a huge influence.” The online aspect to this year’s awards was new, and Schubert thinks it has increased traffic on Rosie’s social media and done its part to expose the business to new followers. The last six months have already seen an increase in business and Schubert hopes to see that growth continue with this award on the books. “It’s been awesome. Especially in the last six months or so, I feel as though the bubble burst,” said Schubert. “In Moose Jaw, if they haven’t heard of us before then they definitely know about us now.”

City Hall Council Notes New admission rates coming to Yara Centre and all rec buildings By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

With the Yara Centre now under municipal ownership, a new admissions structure has been adopted to ensure residents pay the same price when accessing every cityowned recreational building. The Yara Centre and its staff transferred to the parks and recreation department recently, after city council adopted a resolution last November as part of the Downtown Facility and Field House strategic plan, according to a department report. Monthly membership at individual buildings will now be offered at reduced prices. The department report indicates all monthly memberships at the Yara Centre have decreased by roughly 10 per cent, while reductions at the Kinsmen Sportsplex are about 62 per cent. The department acknowledges this will affect how much revenue is generated. During its April 8 regular meeting, council voted 5-2 to accept the revised 2019 parks and recreation rates and fees proposal. The rates go into effect June 1. Councillors Scott McMann and Brian

Swanson were opposed. The parks and rec department has proposed 14 changes to the admissions structure. One change includes a new seniors’ admission rate to all municipal buildings. The Yara Centre had a seniors’ rate while municipal buildings did not. This means residents over age 55 will pay a drop-in rate of $6.25 to use all recreation buildings. A monthly pass will be $48.75; a three-month pass is $121.88; and an annual pass will be $390. For memberships at the Yara Centre only, seniors would pay $43.75 per month (from $51 currently); $109.38 for three months (from $138 now); and $350 annually (from $460 now). There is also a new monthly membership for the seniors’ walking track program. The department report indicated the Yara Centre offered a drop-in rate of $2.25. Moving to a monthly rate would reduce the administrative and customer service burdens associated with paying daily.

City provides list of changes to admission rates and fees for recreational buildings

By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter With the Yara Centre now under municipal ownership, the parks and recreation department has made changes to its rates and fees schedule. Here is a summary of the changes that will come into effect on June 1, as contained in a department report presented during the April 8 city council meeting. • A new City of Moose Jaw recreation pass will provide membership access to all city-owned recreational buildings.

McMann anticipated pushback from seniors with the increase to the drop-in rate to use the track. However, a monthly pass might offset that anger. He also appreciated that the drop-in rate for public skating and to use the track are the same, at $4. Yet he pointed out there is a season pass for public skating, at $31.25, while there is nothing similar for the walking track. The seniors’ drop-in rate to use the track is

for the two-hour window in the morning, explained Derek Blais, director of parks and recreation. This is why a monthly membership was introduced: it provides a reasonably cheaper alternative. Residents with a track membership would also need to pay more if they wanted to use other areas of the building, Blais added. The idea of incorporating the Yara Centre into the overall recreational structure came from Blais, Swanson pointed out. However, the economics are simply not there. The idea that that building can be self-sustaining even with reduced revenue is unfeasible. Swanson pointed to the department report, which says reduced revenue can be overcome by increased memberships. The report says memberships would have to increase 18.7 per cent during the final six months of 2019 to generate more revenue. It costs money to operate these buildings, Swanson said. Although admissions rates are cheaper, the extra money has to come from somewhere. “I’m all for personal fitness, but we also have to pay the bills,” he added. The next city council meeting is April 22.

Health authority looking into woman’s claim of coerced sterilization Moose Jaw Express staff

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) has launched an investigation after an Aboriginal woman from Moose Jaw claims she was coerced into being sterilized after giving birth. The 30-year-old woman — who has not been named in any media reports — was scheduled to have a caesarian section to deliver her third child at the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in December. The Canadian Press reports that the woman wanted more children and never discussed a tubal ligation, until her doctor demanded she sign a consent form while she was on the operating table. The woman claims she signed because she thought she had no other choice. “The Saskatchewan Health Authority takes very seriously any concerns related to patient care. We have initiated an investigation into this situation,� said the SHA Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital (file photo) in a media statement. the 56-page report.

perience. That policy was changed once the then-Saskatoon Health Region learned about the experiences of these women. With this change, a woman must have had a documented discussion with her health-care provider prior to coming into the hospital. Otherwise, tubal ligations would not be provided during the patient’s post-partum experience. Work is nearing completion to ensure that all providers across the province are not discussing the option of tubal ligation during the labour experience, said the SHA. For women who have asked for a tubal ligation to occur with their pre-booked C-sections, there will be a second check to ensure informed consent is in place. “We also have worked closely with our First Nations and MĂŠtis community partners such as FSIN (Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations) and MN-S (MĂŠtis Nation-Saskatchewan), as well as elders and the grandmothers, to establish a council to advise the SHA on the future of health care in our province,â€? the SHA said. The authority has also started, and continues to implement, cultural training of staff. The SHA is working on a culturally responsive framework related to health care, which it adopted in March with its commitment to truth and reconciliation. “However,â€? added the SHA, “we know there is still significant work ahead as a health-care system provincially and nationally to address the root causes of these inequalities and discrimination, and ensure these experiences are not repeated.â€?

On Sunday, April 7, 2019, a cheque from Minto United Church was presented to Brian Heany, Director of the Moose Jaw Christian Counselling Centre, in the amount of $598.25. This donation represents donations from a program called “the Celebrations Box�, where individual congregation members freely donate money each Sunday sharing with their church family any blessings in their lives that they feel fortunate to celebrate (ie) theirs or a family member’s birthday; an anniversary; friendship; good health, etc. The Minto United Church Council prayerfully considered what to do with this money and decided to support local charities and this money be “paid forward� every second month to those in our community who are less fortunate or find themselves in unfortunate circumstances, with faith that God will bless their lives as those who have so graciously and unselfishly donated. Past donations have been made to: The Transition House, Riverside Mission, Joe’s Place Youth Center, MJ Branch of the Canadian Red Cross, MJ Branch of Sask. Acquired Brain Injury Association, Hunger in Moose Jaw and the MJ Food Bank.

Brian Heany gave a brief rundown of the Centre. The Centre has been in operation since May, 1987, and offers counseling to whomever requests it. A typical counseling visit is worth $120 which covers the cost of staff, premises and administration. The average session will collect about $75 in fees and depending whether or not the individual has an employee assistance program, the remainder will be paid for by donations such as Minto’s. Brian stressed that no one is turned away and gave thanks for our congregation’s generosity.

SCRAPS working to maintain stray cat population Larissa Kurz

The Band City Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society — SCRAPS — is always working behind the scenes to control the population of stray cats in Moose Jaw, through their trap, neuter, and release program. The TNR program is a humane method of limiting the repopulation of stray cats by capturing and spaying or neutering the animals before releasing them. The average cat is able to bear kittens at four months of age and can have three litters per year, usually of about four kittens each, which is why overpopulation of feral cats is a problem in Canada. SCRAPS uses the TNR program to limit the birth of untamed cats and also to vaccinate and treat strays for disease, which protects the community from things like rabies. The cats they capture, once treated at a local vet, are put through a socialization program and offered for adoption or released back into the wild if they are deemed too feral. Ann Marciszyn, a volunteer with SCRAPS, finds the program to be beneficial for both the animals and the people of Moose Jaw. Cats that are rescued and of a good disposition are offered for adoption through SCRAPS and Pet Valu,

The event is also still looking for vendors, and table rentals are currently $15 for rescues and $30 for merchandisers until Apr. 15, at which time the price will go up to $25 and $50 respecOne of the adoptable cats being fostered by SCRAPS is Romeo, who may look tively.

Wide World of Weird Sports

I have always considered myself to be an athlete, an eager but not that dedicated or talented athlete that played all the usual sports. Hockey and baseball were my favorites; I was an by Dale “bushy” Bush average weekend warrior but I was always on the lookout for a new or unusual sport to be average at. As a young man in my early twenties, I read a newspaper article about this new sport, Frisbee or Disc golf. I discovered that with some imagination, trees or fence posts and some day-glo surveyors tape, a very good-looking average athlete could design his own disc golf course. Simply tape off about 2 feet of target on trees or posts and throw a Frisbee from about 100 yards, count your score and have a beer. What a great sport! But there are other wacky ways to get your sport on. Most of us can swim and most of us swimmers can snorkel…in water, but in Llanwrtyd Wales they invented the sport of Bog Snorkeling. This sport requires the athlete to snorkel 60 feet through a muddy

water filled channel cut in a peat bog…twice, and the current “world” record is a time of 1 minute 18 seconds. The catch is that the athlete must wear flippers and a snorkel but cannot use conventional swim strokes. Now if this sport sounds like it was conceived in the local Llanwrtyd pub over a few beers, it was. Sometimes all it takes for greatness is great inspiration. If snorkeling is your thing but you would rather avoid the bogs how about underwater hockey? Basically, there are the same rules as hockey only with different equipment consisting of a mask, fins, snorkel, gloves and helmet. Teams of six must use a 12-inch-long hockey stick to push the puck along the pool bottom. The secret to success in this sport is true team work. An average player can stay underwater for about 20 seconds before returning to the surface to breathe, so it is a case of timing with your teammates to avoid surfacing for air all at the same time. I am not sure where the penalty box is, but I would hope it is not underwater. When I quit smoking tobacco a few years ago, my lung power returned, and I heard about a sport that only requires lung power for success. Every April the University of Purdue in Lafayette Indiana hosts its annual Cricket Spitting tournament. Even though it sounds like the sport was imagined over a few beers, it was, it does take skill to spit crickets. This is not a

quantity contest, but rather a distance contest. The aerodynamics of crickets are not conducive to flying great distances so when the world record holder spit his cricket 32 feet it was a big deal. The rules state that a dead cricket must be spat (spitted?) and land intact with wings, legs, antennae and its head to be considered a fair spit. There are thousands of university students who enter each year. I am sure that beer consumption is an important part of the tournament including the conception, training, competing and of course the celebrating…the fact that they had a dead cricket in their mouth and did not spit it out until the ref said to. All of our mothers have said, “Fun is only fun until you lose an eye. then it becomes sport”… or maybe it was our naughty uncles? I am sure it was meant as a warning, but maybe it was meant to be inspiration for a great new sport…with some help from a few beers. Cheers!

Future of two M.J. seniors’ organizations up in the air By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

The future of Moose Jaw’s two seniors organizations is the subject of a town hall meeting April 28. Both organizations – Moose Jaw and District Seniors and Cosmo Seniors – face a bleak future. Money, or lack of it, is the issue. “We’re going to be about $40,000 short this year,” said Moose Jaw and District Seniors director Elaine Parsons. “We took in $357,000 revenues this year.” The group, operating the Timothy Eaton Centre, has been subsidizing annual losses for years from a $177,000 reserve it had built up. “We’ve almost depleted it. Do we really want to lose this place?” In meetings with counterparts at Cosmo Centre, Parsons discovered that group isn’t much better off. “They took out a loan to replace the roof. Now the roof on the other part of the building is leaking. They’re not sure if they can make it.” When Moose Jaw and District Seniors took over the main floor of Timothy Eaton Centre in 1989 the province funded it with $47,000 a year. To have the same purchasing power now would require about $80,000 in grants. “In 1993 we lost all our provincial funding. They said they had to do it to balance the budget.” This year the two seniors’ organizations will share a $26,900 Sask. Lottery trust grant prorated on membership.

Qualifying for grants is difficult. Virtually all are based on specific programs. Hardly any will fund operating expenses. “This meeting is to find out what seniors want, get some ideas and we will go from there.” Anyone aged 50 years and over is invited to attend the meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 28 at the Cosmo Centre. “I think it’s ridiculous that we have only 500 members in Moose Jaw seniors’ groups” out of about 8,000 eligible. Parsons said discussions with service clubs and other groups show not a lot is understood about the seniors’ groups. “So many people don’t know we have a cafe at Timothy that is open to the public.” Moose Jaw and District Seniors rents space and shares maintenance with Moose Jaw Housing which has 26 seniors’ apartments on the top floor. In recent years, the organization’s extra expenses included flooding in the basement fitness centre, access issues as the front was blocked for months by water line repairs, and expensive building repair work. Loss of the heart health program after flooding also hurt finances. Cosmos owns its building and offers many of the same programs as at Timothy Centre.

TRADING THOUGHTS

Will bringing infants to legislature impact political activities? The Saskatchewan Legislature has decided to allow infant children of MLAs into sessions to accommodate young child-bearing mothers. To some observers this action was long overdue, bringing Saskatchewan in line with modern practices. To some observers, the attendance of infants in the Legislature will just add a few members to what already is an adult day care populated by noisy, shouting politicians. Other observers think, or wish, the presence of cuddly infants will create a civil, more restrained atmosphere by Ron Walter with the presence of a new generation casting influence on decisions. Most decisions now are made over money, or not enough of it. Will an infant or two in the room change attitudes? There is some hope that the presence of infants will reduce the thunderous desk-pounding and loud heckling by members. Who wants to keep waking up the baby? Although some will argue the Saskatchewan Legislature already has a larger than desirable share of crybabies and infantile behaviour. Imagine the following exchange in a legislature with infants in attendance. Loud desk pounding comes after an MLA speaks and an infant, wakened from sleep, can be heard crying over the pandemonium. Mr. Speaker says: “Order. Order. We are disturbing an honourable member’s daughter. Heard from a back bencher: “Maybe the baby is hungry and needs to suckle.” Retort from an opposition MLA: “You mean like this government lets its business supporters suck government coffers while letting thousands live in poverty.” Mr. Speaker: “Order. Order.” Order is restored and question period resumes “Mr Speaker,” says an opposition MLA, “I wish to know why this government refuses to implement the federal carbon tax to reduce greenhouse gases when the global scientific community overwhelmingly warns the time to prevent disastrous climate change is disappearing. Is this government refusing to believe in climate change?” Government leader: “Mr Speaker the member opposite distorts our policy. We are not climate change deniers. We have a made-in-Saskatchewan policy to deal with climate change. If the opposition is so gung-ho on the environment, why isn’t the baby across the aisle wearing cloth diapers instead of paper?” Opposition members in unison: “Oh my God!” Mr. Speaker. “Order. Order.” Order is restored and question period resumes after considerable desk thumping on all sides of the House. “Mr. Speaker,” says an opposition MLA, “Why does this government refuse to accept that a carbon tax is the way to go? The carbon tax is intended to ration carbon fuel by making it more expensive. Under the market system supported by this government price increases are used to ration goods. They work by reducing use and fostering alternatives, in this case, solar and wind energy, or more fuel-efficient machines.” Government leader: “How can a so-called carbon tax be effective when 90 per cent of the tax collected is returned to the taxpayers? This carbon tax takes hard-earned money from the right pocket and puts it back in the left pocket. Where is the sense in that?” “Mr. Speaker,” says an opposition MLA, “The tax will reduce carbon use and encourage alternative energy like biofuels. The return of carbon tax will compensate taxpayers hit the hardest.” Government leader: “We believe in a made-in-Saskatchewan policy that does not create uncompetitive conditions for our farmers and our industry, in particular our oil and gas exporters.” Later, a 12-year-old observing the legislature asks his MLA father; “Why do you guys fight and argue all the time? You always tell me I have to get along with my sisters and brothers.” Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Housing market prices continue to decline By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

The local real estate market for houses continued on a sluggish path for the first three months of the year. Dollar volume of $18.4 million increased 2.5 per cent over the previous year period, according to data from the Association of Regina Realtors. But sales and prices declined. The 76 houses sold amounted to 16 per cent less than were sold in 2018. The association benchmark average price of $196,100 was 12 per cent less than one year ago, and 7.9 per cent less than five years ago. Prices are about the same level as in 2012.

In Moose Jaw, the one-storey home benchmark price is $200,500, down from $223,000 one year ago. Two-storey houses at $183,400, fell from $206,700 a year ago. The benchmark price is calculated to remove the skew out of average prices caused by a few sales of high-priced properties. The 179 properties listed for sale is 20 per cent fewer than in March 2018.

Polytech unveils permanent REDress installation Larissa Kurz

Indigenous women and girls in Dakota, Lakota, Denesuline, Cree, Salteaux, Michif, Nakoda, and English. The REDress Project originated from Winnipeg artist Jaime Black, as an aesthetic response to the national issue. Black, on her website, says the installations across the nation are meant to “evoke a presence through the marking of absence.� RCMP estimate the number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls to be around 1,200, although they admit the true number is likely much higher. The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls estimates that number to be closer to 4,000. Of those cases, over 60% remain unsolved.

The REDress Project seeks to honour and raise awareness for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and Saskatchewan Polytechnic has become part of the movement.

“It’s here to bring visibility and awareness to this very important and disturbing issue of murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls,� - Tobi Strohan, associate vice-president of academics on campus.

The permanent display has a meaning for each piece included.

Unveiling a permanent installation in the main entrance of the building, the Indigenous Strategy Advisory Committee hopes to keep the issue in students’ minds and to call for reflection on the many people affected by this issue. “It’s here to bring visibility and awareness to this very important and disturbing issue of murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls,� said Tobi Strohan, associate vice-president of academics on campus. “We hope that by providing such

a prominent place for it and such a striking display, that it will give folks an opportunity to stop, reflect, and honor the lives of those lost.� Deanna Speidel, Indigenous Strategy Coordinator for Saskatchewan, said the display is located in the main entrance of the building so that it will be one of the first things students and visitors see when they visit the building. The hope is to keep the issue front of mind. The display features two red dresses, empty to symbolize the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls;

Psst‌Where did you get your CBD? by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor Like many chiropractic clinics, my office offers a variety of health-related services. Primarily we provide chiropractic care, however acupuncture, massage therapy and laser therapy are available to our patients as well. We also maintain a small inventory of pillows, orthopedic support braces and nutritional supplements. Now that I have gotten some free advertising for my office out of the way‌ Most Canadians know what happened October 17, 2018. It was the day that marijuana was legalized for recreational use across the country. While personally it made no difference to me, I was intrigued professionally because of something that has become somewhat of a buzzword in alternative health‌CBD. CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are 2 of the most often talked about components of marijua-

one of which is sized for a toddler, to bring to light the reality of the ages of some victims. A number of other spiritual items rest in the case, including a to-scale teepee, a white dreamcatcher, a pouch containing four sacred medicines, a small inukshuk, and a sash of the traditional MĂŠtis colors. The items rest on a yellow cloth, symbolizing spring and the eastern direction of the Medicine Wheel. The backdrop is an image of various Indigenous languages floating over birch trees, the words listing the roles of these missing and murdered

na. THC is known to be the psychoactive component of cannabis, it’s what gets you high. CBD is making its claim to fame as a possible analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-psychotic, anti-convulsant and anti-emetic alternative to pharmaceuticals. The CBD will not make you high and is becoming popular as a non-pharmaceutical treatment for many ailments. As an alternative health professional who already retails nutritional health supplements, I was excited to possibly offer these types of products for sale in my office. Soon after legalization, chiropractors across the province were warned by their professional association not to sell CBD product from their offices. My initial thought was that it was because there was not enough evidence to support the health claims made in favour of CBD use, but in reality, it was because it would simply be illegal. There is a general misconception among many Canadians that once October 17th passed, anything marijuana-related was legal. While licensed retailers are the only sellers legally allowed to sell marijuana products, CBD products quickly began to be offered for sale from non-licensed sellers. These sellers (and their buyers) think that as long as the products do not have THC, then it must be legal. Health stores, beauty salons, spas, gifts stores, vape

Deanna Speidel, Indigenous Strategy coordinator, spoke to how this is a lived experience across the country.

shops and even pet stores quickly stocked their shelves with CBD products looking to make money off the recent legalization of marijuana. According to the Federal Cannabis Act, however, they are all breaking the law, and most buyers are unaware they are in possession of something they attained illegally. All cannabis products are strictly regulated through the Federal Cannabis Act. Licensed retailers sell marijuana for recreational use only. Licensed medical dispensaries that sell cannabis products for medicinal use require a medical prescription to sell their products (including CBD). Legalization and regulation are very important for the future of CBD. It allows for more public money to be put toward muchly needed research to prove or dis-prove the touted benefits of all cannabis products. As a consumer, patience is needed, and one must be wary of the products they are getting and be mindful that they may be involved in illicit activity when purchasing such products from a non-licensed retailer.

PARTY makes consequences feel real for students Matthew Gourlie

First responders know the harsh realities of a serious crash site. A number of agencies and groups from Moose Jaw came together to give students from Riverview Collegiate and Cornerstone Christian School a true-to-life representation through the Prevent, Alcohol, Risk-related, Trauma in Youth (PARTY) program. “For all of the years that we’ve been to accident scenes and seen things and seen parents and seen kids hurt or even pass away, it’s just really important for us to have them think twice when they’re out there,” said Angela Sereda, an advanced care paramedic and CEO/Deputy Chief of Moose Jaw and District EMS. The students took part in a mock crash where the Jaws of Life were used. The “victims” – their fellow classmates – were then transported from the ambulance into the emergency ward where the students got to see how trauma victims are treated. Nolan Barnes followed with his story about being paralyzed after surviving a fatal motor vehicle crash. The students broke for lunch, but the lessons didn’t stop there. They were each given an “injury” – be it loss of vision, loss of mobility in an arm or even being confined to their chair – before they were able to try to eat. The day concluded with a look at the realities of a physiotherapy session and then small presentations from the police, EMS, Jones-Parkview Funeral Services and addictions services. “The biggest thing we always want these

Glass shatters as members of the Moose Jaw Fire Department use the Jaws of Life as part of a mock crash during the PARTY program at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital. Matthew Gourlie photograph kids to walk away with is good decision-making skills,” Sereda said. “It’s not having them live in a bubble. It’s not having them not live their life or do fun things, but it’s basically for them to know some of the circumstances that can happen by doing risky behavior. Also, for them to recognize that risky behavior first and make good decisions after that. “I have a teenage daughter who is almost 15 and I also run a mentorship group for teenage girls. So, it’s more about not saying ‘no, don’t do any of this stuff’ – and realizing that they will – but helping them make those good decisions and not have it feel like a lecture. Hopefully they’ll have some more buy-in and learn a little more.”

Students from Riverview and Cornerstone gather to watch the mock crash that was part of the PARTY program at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital. Matthew Gourlie photograph The involvement of everyone from the Five Hills Health Region; Moose Jaw Police Service; Moose Jaw and District EMS; RCMP and the Moose Jaw Fire Department helped make the mock crash as real as possible and all involved hope that the message hits home so that they will have fewer real accidents to deal with in their professions. “Moose Jaw is a small place where everyone knows everyone,” said Deign Salido, a respiratory therapist who was one of the presenters of the emergency room session. “In the back of our minds we are always fearful that it could be someone you know or even your own child who could come in. We have to remain focused on our jobs, but that’s always in the back of your mind. I don’t ever want to see any of you here.”

The PARTY program was started by students in Toronto in the 1980s and has grown to six countries with an aim of giving students a vivid and emotional experience. “It was pretty surreal,” said Meagan Barclay, a Grade 10 student at Cornerstone Christian School who took part in the mock crash. “When I was coming in through the ambulance and they were walking down the hallway, every time I would open my eyes it would seem really weird. Then I was getting hooked up to all of the IVs and everything like that… even though it was fake, it was still a really surreal experience.” Surreal, but hopefully an experience that never becomes real for any of the students who took part.

Barnes shares message he didn’t receive Matthew Gourlie

Nolan Barnes doesn’t sugarcoat his story. He doesn’t preach either. Barnes became paralyzed from the waist down nearly nine years ago when he was ejected from the vehicle he was riding at 18 years of age. He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and crashed on his way home in Yorkton after a night of hard partying at a rave in Saskatoon. “What happened to me wasn’t an accident,” Barnes said. “It wasn’t like a one-time only thing that I couldn’t see coming. It was a series of decisions that got me into a risky situation that inevitably caused this injury.” Barnes spoke to students from Riverview and Cornerstone Christian School last Tuesday as part of the Prevent, Alcohol, Risk-related, Trauma in Youth (PARTY) program at the Dr. F. H Wigmore Hospital. He spoke candidly about how his partying in high school and drinking turned into using marijuana when his friend group changed. He then started to get into hard drugs like ecstasy and cocaine. He almost never wore a seatbelt. He got three seatbelt tickets in high school and it still had no impact on his choices. Barnes was so high the night of the crash that he doesn’t remember parts of it. Nine people were in the vehicle as they returned from a rave and an after-party that Barnes had lied to his parents about attending. He was asleep when the vehicle rolled and ejected cleanly, waking up confused laying in a field. He would spend two weeks in a coma and had metal rods inserted into his back. His friend Jason Haas was ejected and killed. There were no other fatalities in the crash and the three people who were wearing seatbelts walked away relatively uninjured. “I try in my presentation not to use the word ‘don’t’. These guys get told ‘don’t’ every day about something. I just try to relay how the decisions I made inevitably affected my

Nolan Barnes speaks to students as part of the Prevent, Alcohol, Risk-related, Trauma in Youth (PARTY) program at the Dr. F. H Wigmore Hospital. Matthew Gourlie photograph life without me almost knowing it until I could look back years later. I think being honest makes it relatable and I think it makes it real,” Barnes said. Barnes wants to be honest about what he was like and how he was living his life at the time of the crash. He was simply trying to do enough to graduate and was focused on drugs and partying despite the strain it was putting on his relationship with his family. When he was in Grade 10, the PARTY program came to his school. Describing himself as “a D student kid that just wanted to have a good time and was a popular kid in school” he said his mission now is to reach kids who are like younger versions of himself. He admitted, often when others came to school to speak to the students, he

coined them as “goody-goodies” and wasn’t receptive to what they had to say. “You see the pictures; you hear the stories… I didn’t think that was something that would ever happen to me,” Barnes said. “I was actually pulled out of the PARTY program when I was in Grade 10 when the motivational speaker was speaking because I was goofing around - oddly enough - and now I’m doing the presentation. “Hopefully I can reach those people who are like me.” Shortly after the accident, Barnes graduated. He had lost three classmates to impaired driving accidents and each of their mothers came up to him at graduation and told him how lucky he was. “I thought ‘what do you mean I’m so lucky? Look at me.’ I didn’t feel very lucky,” said Barnes. But finally, after hearing he was lucky three times, it began to resonate with him. “For me, I’m upset [because of the state of my condition after the accident], but everyone around me was so pumped to have me here because it could have very easily been another story like my friends.” Despite all they had been through, his parents were nothing but supportive. His oldest friends were the first at his bedside. He said he understood the concept of ‘unconditional love’ for the first time. “Sometimes it’s difficult to hold back my emotions when I’m talking about things like my family and how people felt. I go back and it’s real for me. I feel those feelings,” Barnes said. “It was probably the worst thing to ever happen to me in my life and it was probably the best thing that ever happened to me in my life.” In addition to speaking to students and sharing his story, Barnes has become a member of the Canadian disabled water-skiing team and finished fifth at worlds in 2017.

Moose Jaw Community Players production ramping up as showtime nears on April 26 and 27 Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

It takes a special kind of actor to be able to perform a full musical on stage almost completely from start to finish – lots of singing, a lot of quick costume changes, and even dealing with being under the lights for such a long amount of time are all factors that play into such a tough acting assignment. But Keyanna Burgher and John-Mark Smith plan to be up to the task as they play the lead roles in the Moose Jaw Community Players production of ‘The Last Five Years’, running Friday, Apr. 26 and Saturday, Apr. 27 at the Mae Wilson Theatre. The duo joined their fellow castmates and crew for a full stage rehearsal at Minto United Church. From all indications, things are quickly coming together. Burgher said that it was nice to be rehearsing on a stage. “That’s especially crucial for a show like ‘Five Years’ – a tale of two New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of that time span -- which features a fair amount of stage work to properly pull it off. “It’s been great to work in this space and have more options for moving around and to get an idea what the actual set is going to be like, and using our props and that sort of stuff,” Smith said. “And all the costume changes we get to do, they’re fun, a little hectic, but fun at the same time.” Creating the hectic scenario, Composer and playwright John Robert Brown put the story together featuring multiple time jumps from year five and character Cathy Hiatt’s story at the end of their marriage to year one and Jamie Wellerstein’s view of their first meeting. Then it’s to year four, to year two, and so on until the story’s conclusion.

The actors and crew from The Last Five Years pause from rehearsal Friday night for a quick group photo. To that end, show director Debbie Burgher has sought to use the set in a way that shows that change in time, hence the sweeping changes in costumes and scenery and the need to practice on a major stage. “Like when we’re here in one place on the set, it’s year one and when we’re over here on the set, it’s year five,” Keyanna said. “So to be able to practice that way has been awesome.” The performance itself is complicated. “It’s funny, on the website for the show, it said the actors and vocalists must have stamina because we both sing eight songs each,” Burgher explained. “It’s a huge show, and we’ve added extras into it so we have other actors to fill out the world. It’s a lot of pressure vocally and just being on the stage under the lights for that long.” “And even if you’re not singing a song, I’ll be on stage with Keyanna and vice-versa, even if we’re not singing you still have to be mentally engaged for the whole thing, and that makes for a more engaging performance,” added Smith. “You still have to think about the ways you’re acting and moving and things like that.” The original version of the show and the way it’s been performed in the past saw the two actors never take the stage together except in the marriage scene in the middle of the play. Changing that dynamic has brought a more realistic feel to the proceedings in Burgher’s eyes.

“We decided to be on the stage together because it makes the relationship that much more interesting and believable, and that’s extra pressure on us since we’re both on all the time,” she said. With a short time left to rehearse, the plan is to have everything as smooth as can be when things finally hit the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre for the first time the day before opening night. Sharing the stage with everyone else helps work out the bugs. Smith said, “We rely on them for some of our props and bringing them on and off, so getting used to doing that with them and using the set and working with them will make everyone that much more comfortable.” Of course, the entire production wouldn’t be possible without the support of outside supporters, with Prairie Bee Meadery taking on the role of title sponsor. “We have a bunch of really, really amazing sponsors, because putting on a musical in particular is really, really expensive, I don’t know if people always realize that,” Burgher said. “So we have a ton of awesome sponsors and local businesses that have stepped up to help this all come together.” Showtime both Apr. 26 and Apr. 27 is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale for $25 plus service fees at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre box office or through www. moosejawculture.ca.

Saskatchewan’s March unemployment rate lowest since 2015, Stats Canada data shows Moose Jaw Express Staff

Saskatchewan’s unemployment rate in March fell to its lowest levels since 2015, while year-over-year employment increased by 9,800 jobs from last March, according to a government news release. A report that Statistics Canada released on April 5 indicates that Saskatchewan’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 4.9 per cent last month, down from six per cent in March 2018 and 5.8 per cent in February 2019, the news release explained. The unemployment rate was the second-lowest in the country and below the national average of 5.8 per cent. March’s unemployment rate was the lowest recorded in Saskatchewan since August 2015.

With year-over-year employment increasing by 9,800 jobs since last March, this marks the eighth consecutive month of strong job gains for the province, the news release said. The job gains were primarily full-time employment with full-time jobs up 9,200 from a year ago; part-time jobs increased by 800 positions. Jobs in the private sector increased by 11,500 during the same time period. On a seasonally-adjusted basis, there were 3,900 more jobs compared to this past February, an increase of 0.7 per cent, which was the third-highest percentage gain among provinces. Other March highlights include: Saskatchewan recorded record-high levels

for labour force, employment, full-time employment, and male and female employment Major year-over-year increases in agriculture of 3,400 positions; educational services jobs of 2,400; and health care and social assistance of 2,400 jobs An increase of 3,000 jobs in youth employment for seven consecutive months of year-over-year increases, with the seasonally adjusted youth unemployment rate the second-lowest in Canada “With nearly 10,000 new jobs created in the last year, Saskatchewan employers are showing confidence in our economy in spite of the external headwinds we are facing,” said Jeremy Harrison, minister

Childhood favorites Sharon & Bram saying farewell in Moose Jaw Larissa Kurz

Everyone knows the tune to ‘Skinnamarink,’ the iconic song from children’s folk trio Sharon, Lois & Bram; the trio became a duo years ago when Lois retired, and now Sharon & Bram are embarking on a farewell tour of their own. The pair will be stopping in Moose Jaw on Apr. 24, and they’re excited to once again be on the stage and interacting with their audience. They spent part of 2018 touring and due to encouragement from their fans, decided to extend the tour into 2019 and visit some places they missed along the way. Both parents and children — and even grandchildren — are sure to enjoy the show, said the pair, as they encourage those in the audience to sing along as they please. “They’re going to be singing from note one. That’s one of the hallmarks of what we do,” said Bram, adding: “It’s not just children’s music. We do music for the family and that’s our audience and that’s who we’ve been performing for right from day one.” “They will hear songs that they know and that they’ve heard before and sung before, and they will hear new songs because we have been recording some new songs … that we’re very excited about,” said Sharon. “So they’ll participate with the old favorites and the new ones.” Having been performing their music for over forty years, the pair is glad to have touched four generations of people

Photo supplied with their music. “It was a family concert, as intended right from the very beginning. And so we had two generations for the most part. . . And then as everybody grew up, the children became parents, the parents became grandparents and there

was a whole new crop of new little kids,” said Bram “And then just recently someone says, ‘oh, I’m bringing my great grandchild to your concert.’ And I said, ‘whoops, four [generations]!’” This will likely be the last chance to see Sharon & Bram live on stage, but they do have their music available as CDs and for download, both old and new songs. The pair have not recorded anything new for about 20 years, so having the new music they have now available is worth checking out. “Bram and I had not recorded in many, many, many years,” said Sharon. “It was very exciting for us to get back into the recording studio, it was something that we never expected. It was actually Bram’s idea that we do that and we’ve had a really good time.” The pair is excited to be on tour, even if it is the last one, and will have songbooks and t-shirts available at their shows for a taste of take-home nostalgia. “We’re really looking forward to seeing old faces and a lot of new ones,” said Bram. “Exactly, and to hearing their lovely voices. Bram likes to say we have the best seats in the audience because we get to watch them and we really get great pleasure from that,” said Sharon. Tickets for the show are available on the Cultural Centre’s website.

Special fundraiser aims to raise $50,000 for air rescue organization Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The last thing Tereen Mowrey wants to do is find herself stranded in the wilderness this fall on the evening of September 5. Not only would that be a less than ideal situation for the Henderson Insurance account executive, it would also mean she came up short in her fundraising goal of $50,000 for the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service, better known as STARS. That’s because Mowrey is the latest Moose Jaw resident to take part in the Rescue on the Prairies, which has participants dropped off in a remote location on the day of the event to take part in a variety of STARS-related activities. If they’ve reached their fundraising goal they’ll be ‘rescued’ by a STARS air ambulance at the end of the day. “My partner Dean (Lang) and I are really passionate about STARS and believe it’s a vital service in our province, as well as the fact it’s only 50 per cent funded by the government and they need to raise over $20 million a year just to keep the birds in the sky,” Mowrey said. “And we know that it’s not about if, it’s when someone is affected and saved by STARS, so we know they need a lot of money to keep going.” Lang participated in the first Rescue on the Prairies in 2015 and found the experience so positive that he couldn’t resist getting others involved. Including members of his family. “We were at the after-party last year from the Rescue and the next thing I know the CEO and president of STARS is coming and thanking me: I hear you’re going to

do Rescue! Dean had signed me up when I went to the washroom,” Mowrey said with a laugh. “So we’re excited and it’s a fun way to raise money for such a great cause.” To help fundraise for her part in the venture, a special STARS fundraiser auction was conducted by Ritchie Brothers at Gibson International Carriers on Thursday afternoon, drawing hundreds of auction-goers and even seeing a few items donated to the cause. The event also included a barbeque lunch, silent auction and 50/50 draw. Also on hand were members of STARS air ambulance, including events manager Kimberly Kroll-Goodwin and director of development Jeri-Lynn Johnston. “We love coming out to support the people who support us, so we’re here today,”

Ritchie Brothers auctioneers conducted the STARS auction fundraiser at Gibson International Carriers on Thursday.

Kroll-Goodwin said before explaining the Rescue program and how it helps give participants a chance to experience what being a STARS aircrew technician is like.

“The participants get a feel for what the training is like for our staff every day and they get a real feel for STARS as a whole and our sort of family atmosphere, how important it is to have the technical skills… we’re literally a flying ICU unit,” Kroll-Goodwin explained. With the remaining $10.5 million to support STARS having to come through fundraising, it’s a project that requires an immense amount of support from the communities STARS serves. “That’s done through a combination of efforts, like Rescue on the Prairie, along with a few others,” Johnston said. “We have a lottery that will be kicking off in another month as well as a major gift-giving program and a calendar that runs annually for us. “Every dollar counts for STARS.” For more information and to donate to Mowrey’s Rescue on the Prairies quest, check out stars.ca/event/rescue-on-theprairie

In the days before commercial cake mixes, homemakers crafted cakes with precision and attention to minute details. “The mixing and baking of cake requires more care and judgment than any other branch of cookery,” wrote Fannie Farmer in her 1896 cookbook. “The baking of the cake is more critical than the mixing. Many a well-mixed cake has been spoiled in the baking. Experience alone has proved the most reliable teacher,” she said, implying that experience comes from practice and practice might mean perfection. “In baking cake, divide the time required into quarters . . . first quarter, begins to rise; second quarter, continues rising and beginning to brown; third quarter, continue browning; fourth quarter, finish baking and shrinks from pan.” This week’s cake recipes come from the Fannie Farmer 1896 Boston Cooking School Cook Book. ••• Hot Water Sponge Cake 2 egg yolks 1 cup sugar 3/8 cup water 1/4 tsp. lemon extract

Renaming of Wild Animal Park reflects area’s Aboriginal history By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

The Wild Animal Park is wild no more, after city council voted to change the name of the area to better reflect its Aboriginal history. Closed since 1995, the Wild Animal Park has been renamed Tatawaw Park, which in Cree means “there is room for everyone; welcome.” Council voted 5-2 to rename the 475-acre park during its April 8 regular meeting. Councillors Brian Swanson and Heather Eby were opposed. Eby uses the park hundreds of times a year, and has done so for the past 29 years, she explained. While she was not opposed to changing the name on paper, she didn’t think the name would change in residents’ minds. She pointed out the Wild Animal Park has had its name for 90 years.

“That’s a long time to have been called that,” she added. While he wasn’t in favour of changing the name of the entire green space, Swanson was in favour of changing a small area of the park. He also pointed out that the park was known in the community as the Wild Animal Park for 90 years. “I’m really proud of our community,” said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. Tolmie thought it was important to understand the historical context of the area and the opportunities available in that park. Renaming it is a launching point to discuss the historical stories of that area. “I know there are reservations with the language change. But it starts here …,” he added. “In 100 years from now, we could have something amazing in that area.”

The parks and recreation department received a request from the South Hill Community Association and Tatawaw renaming sub-committee to rename the Wild Animal Park, according to a report from city administration. Research indicates Aboriginal people lived in the area since the 1700s, with the park containing many archeological artifacts, the report explained. In June 1928, a group of Moose Javians organized the Moose Jaw Wild Animal Park Society, and on May 24, 1929, the park opened for the first time. The Moose Jaw Lions Club assumed responsibility for the park in January 1959. The park then became part of the province’s regional park system on April 1, 1962, before the provincial government took ownership on Nov. 1, 1975. A map shows where the Wild Animal Park is located and its entrance. MJ Express The Wild Animal Park ceased operations in 1995, while in 1998, the City of Moose photo

Jaw acquired the property from the provincial government. City administration asked for public feedback about changing the park’s name in February. It received 13 emails, with data showing: • 54 per cent of people supported renaming the Wild Animal Park to Tatawaw Park • 46 per cent did not support renaming the park City hall also received letters of support to rename the park from the Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association, the Moose Jaw Heritage Advisory Committee, the New Southern Plains Metis Local No. 160 and the Wakamow Valley Authority. The next city council meeting is April 22.

Lucid “Lu” Knight Arnold come over to the house yesterday. We’d got up. He was crazy excited. Arnold is normally Uber (new word of the month) excitable at the best of time but was now over the top. Comes in waving a small brochure around and shouting, “They can’t do this!” Turns out Arnold was upset over the new Federal Carbon Tax, again. I explained to him that ‘they’, the Federal Government, could do whatever they wanted and no amount of ‘No Carbon Tax” bumper stickers on a half ton pickup was gonna change that. He was tore-up something awful. Said he knew that. Said it was the GST he was mad about. For them not certain, the GST is the Goods and Services

GST Charged On Carbon Tax

Tax. It’s a 5% Federal Tax we got from the Conservative Government of Brian Mulroney. It’s 5% on top of the price of stuff you buy, the goods – and 5% on any services you buy, like a hole dug by a backhoe. I told Arnold to calm down, sit quiet and I made us a pot of tea. There’d be no talking until I made tea. Then we talked about what had him all upset. While I made tea the Misses snuck out the basement door to took off to Moose Jaw. She wouldn’t have no part of talkin’ about the Carbon Tax. She’s good with Arnold, for a short time. Sipping on his syrup tea – Arnold puts four spoons of sugar in his tea – I asked Arnold to begin. The flood gates opened. What bothered him more than anything was the GST. He knew he couldn’t fight the Carbon Tax – but charging GST on the Carbon Tax bothered him awful. He says, “If your Carbon Tax is ten dollars, the extra GST will be 5% or fifty cents on top of that. They’ll collect millions in GST alone.” Well, he got the math right. Then he goes on, “That means the Goods and Services Tax is taxing taxes. And a Tax

ain’t a Goods nor a Service.” He hit the table and shouts, “It ain’t right.” He had a point. Imagine this. The RM charges a Tax on the farm. The Government then wants me to pay GST on the RM Farm Taxes. Still thinking that way, if I buy a new truck, I’d pay GST on the New Truck, Provincial Sales Tax on the New Truck and then I’d pay GST on the PST? I was never good with high finances, but paying taxes on taxes, on taxes seems like taking advantage of folks. My Dad called that kind of thinking, ‘Malarkey’. And Arnold asks me, “So, if the Carbon Tax goes to saving the planet, what does the GST go to save?” Joking, I said, “Pluto.” And he asks, “Why a Disney Character?” It got confusing. I told Arnold I didn’t know who got the 5%. I could be wrong but charging GST on the Carbon Tax is taking money from well-meaning folks what wants to save the planet. Taking the 5% don’t make the Government look sincere about wanting to save this planet, or any other. Lucid ‘Lu’ Knight, Fern Valley, via the Mossbank Post Office, Saskatchewan

Grandma Mary’s Apron By Jean Duzan Daniels Schnitzler

Few of our kids know what grandma’s apron was used for. An apron is a garment worn over other clothing to cover mainly the front of the body. It may have several different purposes and today is a functional accessory to protect one’s clothes and skin from incidental stains and marks. Grandmas apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only owned a few dresses and because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses. Aprons used less material and were simpler to sew. The apron would be worn right side out and when it was soiled, she tied it inside out. She could wear it two weeks before she had to wash it. Now for the nitty-gritty. Her apron served as pot holders for removing hot pans from the oven. They were made from cotton and

were wonderful for drying children’s tears and on occasion dust from the ears. From the chicken coop for carrying eggs from the nests, half hatched eggs and fuzzy

chicks to the kitchen to the warming closet to keep warm. The chickens and turkeys would perch on the cloths-line and grandma would dust off the line before hanging out the laundry to dry. I questioned- what about the mud and the poop? When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. I was one of those shy kids. I felt safe behind Grandma’s apron. When I found out it was Uncle George, I took to hiding again. When the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms. The big old aprons were used for waving fans and wiping many a perspiring brow, while bent over the hot stove or working outdoors on a hot summer day. Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron to light a new fire. From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas were shelled, it carried the pods back to the garden patch for compost. In the fall, the apron brought the beautiful red crabapples into grandma’s warm kitchen to be put in jars for fruit for the winter. Mmmmm good. The apples that fell off the tree went into Apple Crisp. When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds. The apron pockets held such treasures for grandkids like me. Sometimes it was a sparkling pebble she found in the yard to add to my collection. Often it was a coin or two for a treat when we went to town. I really was excited when there was a single earring after losing its mate. There were treasures untold. That apron dried our childish tears when we scraped a knee and cried, because Grandmas apron healed and I didn’t die from the injury. When dinner was ready, grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron and the menfolk knew it was time to come in from the field to eat. Uncle Carl said she didn’t have to do that because his stomach already told him. She flipped the apron as a weapon, when grandpa teased and pinched her bottom. I

would giggle when Grandpa laughingly jumped. Grandma seemed to like that for she turned her back and chuckled. I knew that they loved each other. The apron was used to tie the cow’s tail to its leg so it wouldn’t swing when she sat on the stool to milk. I remember the times I snuggled my face into Grandmas apron and felt her arms around my back; the feeling of gladness and love being held in Grandma Mary’s arms. It would be wonderful if someone could invent something that would replace that ‘old time’ apron that served so many purposes. I Remember: Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on an open window sill to cool. Yes, she used her apron as pot holders. We were playing in the farmyard and would spy the pies cooling there. If they were cool enough, they dug in with their fingers to taste-test. Not me, because if Grandma asked, I had to tell her the truth. I wanted a big piece of her pie. Today there are no window ledges, so granddaughters put them in the Microwave to thaw. Did I catch a cold when grandma wiped my face with her apron? I didn’t catch anything from Grandmas apron-but love, lots of love.... When Grandma went to heaven, God said it was time to find rest. I’m sure the apron she chose that day was her Sunday best. Grandma’s gone, but not forgotten, her apron hangs on a hook. The apron was still hanging in the kitchen, Grandpa looked and stares. He took it off the hook, holding it to his face and sobbing silently, dabbed away his tears. I will always miss you, Grandma-----Jean As I looked at grandma’s apron hanging close to the kitchen door, It was so filled with precious love, one corner touched the floor. Now as I pick this apron up and gather it close to my face, the fragrance of Grandma Mary’s love, time can never erase.

Moose Jaw born Lisa Franks named new honorary colonel of 15 Wing By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Fifteen Wing Moose Jaw has named Lisa Franks its new honorary colonel, a position that Franks says will allow her to be a bridge between the community and the air force. The air base held the change of investiture ceremony on April 5 in the atrium of the O.B. Philp Complex. Franks replaces outgoing honorary colonel Bert Olson, who held the position since April 2015. Dozens of people were on hand, including family and friends of Franks and Olson, plus base supporters, personnel and trainees. “It’s a huge honour. I’ll be navigating as I go and (determining) what I can contribute … ,” Franks said after the ceremony. “I was stunned I was being considered. I didn’t have any connections to the Forces. I was kind of like, ‘Really, me, really?’ was my first reaction … . I’d be silly not to embrace it.” Franks, 37, is originally from Moose Jaw. She is a Paralympic athlete who competed in wheelchair sprint events in the 2000 Sydney Paralympics and the 2004 Athens Paralympics. She won four gold and one silver in Sydney, plus two gold in Athens. Meeting new people veterans, attending ceremonies and events, and learning about the accomplishments of the military were some of the activities Olson enjoyed during his four years as honorary colonel, he said. One particularly meaningful event Olson attended was in 2015 during the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands during the Second World War. “I felt very honoured to be wearing a

uniform that day, and I felt very ashamed that I knew so little about the RCAF’s (Royal Canadian Air Force) accomplishments and what difference we’ve made in the world,” he said during the handover ceremony. Olson was an outstanding example to those around him and was selfless, said base commander Col. Denis O’Reilly during the ceremony. He rarely missed an opportunity to advocate or represent the air base. “Your wisdom has rubbed off and it has not gone unnoticed by me,” O’Reilly added. As the new honorary colonel, Franks believes she can relate to the flight students. They face high pressure situations during training, which is something she understands through her Paralympic ca-

reer. Concepts such as discipline, teamwork and sacrifice are also common to both worlds. Furthermore, Franks wants them to understand that pressure is to be expected, while it is OK to fail and struggle. They will succeed with mental toughness. Franks, who lives in Saskatoon, is looking forward to visiting Moose Jaw more often as she represents the air base. “Growing up in Moose Jaw, to be able to reconnect with the community, I think it’s going to be really special because they supported me so much when I was younger,” she said. “I miss those connections.” Sometimes the main way to succeed in this role is to participate in events when invited and enjoy the learning experience, Olson said afterward. His advice

to Franks is to take every opportunity to attend ceremonies and understand everything she can about the military. “I appreciated the opportunity (to be honorary colonel),” Olson added. “I met many great Canadians serving in this capacity … It made me a better person.” According to the Royal Canadian Air Force website, honorary colonels are important members of the air force family. They may be former air force officers or distinguished Canadian citizens who are well-known public and community figures. They work behind the scenes and provide connection between the community and the Canadian Forces. The Canadian tradition of honouring regional or local dignitaries with an honorary rank in the military goes back to 1857. However, it was 1895 before the first honorary colonel was appointed.

Fire captain retires after rewarding 34-year career By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Capt. Earl Harding has retired from the Moose Jaw Fire Department after 34 years and says while he won’t miss calls that end poorly, he will miss the guys with whom he worked. Harding’s last day was April 4th and while speaking to the Moose Jaw Express on April 5 at the fire hall on Lillooet Street, he joked that his first day of retirement was going well and he was looking forward to his time off. The fire department’s mandatory retirement age is 60, but Harding decided to retire two years early, since the organization has been making changes anyway. “I realized there’s a whole lot less time moving forward than there is behind me,” said Harding. “I’ve got a lot of things I would still like to do.” Harding, 58, has no immediate plans now that he is retired, although he says he has a “honey-do” list from his wife, as well as a few projects he wants to finish. The Hardings hope to do some travelling across the country, especially to see the East Coast of Canada. Harding was a journeyman carpenter when he decided to change his occupation at the age of 24 to become a firefighter. He submitted an application and the rest is history – a 34-year tenure with the fire department. “It’s been a great career. I have no regrets,” he said, adding firefighting is one of the most rewarding careers a per-

ily complete with family-like dynamics such as the occasional argument or disagreement but there was never a doubt during emergency situations that they had his back and he had theirs. “Your very life depends on that guy,” he added. Harding fondly recalls memories of calls that turned out well but unfortunately the ones that didn’t end well have stayed with him the longest. In a news release that announced Harding’s retirement, Fire Chief Rod Montgomery praised Harding for being a role model for young firefighters, senior firefighters and other officers. The fire chief acknowledged that Harding was willing to help with any tasks and guide new members, while he also had honour and integrity. “I never really thought of myself as a role model or mentor. (But) I hope I left something behind,” Harding said. “I basically just came to work and did my job. If that rubbed off on some of the other guys, then that’s the way it should work. “Hopefully they retained the good things and not the bad that may have showed up,” he added with laugh. Harding has no plans to move now that he is retired but figures that he’ll pop by the fire hall on occasion, as other retired firefighters do, and have a coffee and socialize with the fire crews.

Vanier hosts leadership conference for several Moose Jaw schools Larissa Kurz

Students from throughout the Holy Trinity School Division joined Vanier students at their Horizons Leadership Conference, organized by the Vanier Student Representative Council. The conference brought two keynote speakers — Nick Foley, founder of Move for Inclusion non-profit and author of Celebrate the Hero, and Siera Bearchell, the first Saskatchewanian to represent Canada at the Miss Universe pageant — to around 300 students from Holy Trinity School Division, Peacock Collegiate, Central Collegiate, Mossbank, and Gull

Lake. The purpose of the conference was to impress upon the students how important student leadership is for them and for their peers, and to prompt ideas on how to get themselves involved in their school’s community. Cheylynne Luch and Jenna Meili, from the Vanier SRC, are coming away from the conference feeling confident the students took home some ideas to build their leadership skills. “I think they took away a lot of ways that they can make their community or school

Members of Vanier SRC walked students through a number of icebreaker activities. better,” said Luch. “I think that there was a lot of things that we showed them

that [the SRC] does here, that are quite unique, so I think they can take a lot of that back to their school.” “We’re hoping that some of the opportunities maybe resonated with them, so then they could, for example, go to a conference or go travel with those leadership opportunities,” added Meili. Both Luch and Meili saw some fresh ideas they want to bring to the student body in their school, before the end of the year, and they hope that the Vanier SRC will bring the conference back again next year.

Local program raising awareness of distracted driving dangers Matthew Gourlie When Cathie Bassett and Sgt. Tim Schwartz go to schools, they conclude their presentation on distracted driving with a call for the students to share the message with their circle – their friends, families and loved ones. When Bassett, public education officer with the Moose Jaw and District Fire Department and Schwartz, from the Moose Jaw RCMP detachment, shared their presentation at the Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs convention in Moose Jaw, they asked the attendees to share their presentation with their circle too. “We saw this as a problem and it’s huge,” Bassett said, “so we wanted to do something about it and we want to help you guys provide it in your communities.” Bassett and Moose Jaw Fire Chief Rod Montgomery helped lead the charge on the outreach program that also involves the RCMP, the Moose Jaw Police Service and the Moose Jaw and District EMS. The program now targets Grade 9 students in small groups hoping to get the message of the dangers of distracted driving through before they get behind the wheel. “We all know that it takes your eyes off the road and takes you away from the responsibility of driving that vehicle that you’re in and as a result, you have a crash,” Schwartz said. “The big four killers on our highways are speed, impaired driving, seat belts and distracted driving.” The statistics related to distracted driving are sobering. Drivers using hand-held devices are four times more likely to get into a collision serious enough to cause injury over drivers who are focused on the road. Driver distraction is a factor in 8 out of 10 car crashes in North America each year. “Distracted driving is a form of impaired driving,” Bas-

Cathie Bassett, public education officer with the Moose Jaw and District Fire Department, makes a presentation on distracted driving at the Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs convention. (Matthew Gourlie photograph) sett said. “A driver’s judgement is compromised when they aren’t fully focused on the road. In Ontario, distracted driving is the number one cause of fatalities in (motor vehicle collisions), not drunk driving but distracted driving. In Saskatchewan, it’s number two and it’s climbing fast.” When SGI made distracted driving its spotlight in October of 2018, there were 793 tickets given out and 688 were for cellphone use. The rest were for driving with undue care and attention. “That is the highest amount that Saskatchewan has ever given out,” Bassett said. “So, it has increased.” The penalties have also increased. In addition to a fine for a first offence, if a motorist receives two distracted driving tickets in 12 months, the vehicle they are driving

is impounded for seven days at the owner’s expense. The law has also changed the wording from “using” a cellphone while driving to “holding, viewing, using or manipulating” a cellphone while driving. Schwartz added that even if you are stopped at a stop sign or in a drive-thru, if your car is not in park, you are still driving and could be ticketed. While cellphones are the main cause of distracted driving, it is far from the only cause. Eating while driving, children in the backseat, grooming, often make-up, though the presenters related a story about man who was pulled over while shaving, and pets in a vehicle are all examples of distracted driving. To help bring home the idea that a second or two looking at your phone could change your life, the presentation ended with “Josh’s Story”, a powerful video about a teenager who died after being in a distracted driving accident.

Local EMS chief advocates for paramedics on Parliament Hill Matthew Gourlie

Paramedics are trained to be calm and focused in all manner of life-or-death situations. Speaking to politicians, however, isn’t one of those situations they were trained for. Still, Moose Jaw and District EMS Chief Kyle Sereda brought his passion for his profession to Ottawa as he advocated on behalf of paramedics nationwide as part of the Paramedic Association of Canada’s annual Paramedics on the Hill trip. “It was intimidating at first, but it was really good,” said Sereda who is also the provincial rep. on the Paramedic Association of Canada board. “We were really well-received. Paramedics are well-respected in public service, so the MPs were really receptive.” Sereda met Tom Lukiwski, MP for Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan and long-standing Liberal MP Ralph Goodale, who is the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness. Sereda met with a total of four MPs and a parliamentary secretary, as the Paramedic Association of Canada had a total of 40 different meetings in total. The four topics that the paramedics wanted to highlight for MPs were: opioids, paramedic mental health and wellness, community paramedics and the Canadian Paramedic Memorial Foundation.

Moose Jaw and District EMS Chief Kyle Sereda, left, met with MP Tom Lukiwski along with Andrew Williamson from the Saskatchewan Emergency Medical Services Association and Corey McNeice from Moose Jaw and District EMS in Ottawa this week. Being at the front line of the opioid crisis, the paramedics advocated that government meaningfully involve them in policy and program development. They also commended them for the additional funding of $30.5 million over five years in the 2019 budget. The Association also asked that the government support a national action plan for paramedics and organize a national paramedic mental health prevalence survey. Monday, the Federal government unveiled an action plan on post-traumatic stress injuries (PTSI) among public safety personnel. The plan includes $20M for a NaSTEER MANURE

Paramedics are actually three times more likely than any other emergency service worker to experience the stresses of PTSI, suicides, compassion fatigue and all of

those types of thing that are impactful in this job.” The Association also advocated that the Federal government invest in community paramedic initiatives that could provide service to rural and remote communities, and to indigenous communities. Community paramedicine uses paramedics in non-traditional roles where they use their skills in areas like palliative care, hospital to home visits, wellness checks, home checks. The goal is to be more preventative as opposed to responsive. Finally, the Paramedic Association of Canada would like to see a national monument for fallen paramedics. “That’s more of a direct conversation around funding as well as some land procurement in Ottawa,” Sereda said. “There are national monuments for police, fire and military for fallen members in the line of duty. We’ve had 48 since 1980. There is no national monument for paramedics.” The Paramedic Association of Canada has raised $450,000 through its benevolent society after many years of fundraising for the project. The cost for the project would be $5 million and could be unveiled by 2022. The Association has submitted their official proposal to Canadian Heritage and Minister Goodale’s office.

City Hall Council Notes

Vanier Collegiate to expand student parking lot By Jason G. Antonio - Express Reporter

The parking lot on the west side of Vanier Collegiate will soon be expanded and paved, giving students more parking space while reducing the amount of dust produced. Located within 324 MacDonald Street, the parcel of land covers the student parking lot and a portion of the athletic field. The school intends to resurface and expand the lot to the undeveloped northern portion of the property. The parking lot would also be reconfigured to allow pedestrian access along Fourth Avenue Northwest, at the request of the municipality’s parks and recreation department. The property is zoned as floodway, which prohibits any buildings from being constructed under provincial regulations. However, the municipality has the discretion to allow development, including parking lots. The provincial government owns this property since it is Crown land. During its April 8 regular meeting, city council unanimously approved a motion to allow Holy Trinity Catholic School Division to renovate the parking lot. The division would have to provide a drainage design that satisfies the municipality’s engineering department; accept responsibility for maintenance; and accept responsibility for any damage that might occur during a flood. A report from the department of planning and development service indicates the department is satisfied that the proposed changes would not adversely affect efficiency or drainage. Other city departments have not raised any concerns with this, either. While there are existing fences around the parking lot, the department is encouraging the school division to replace the fences with a barrier that is less likely to catch debris during a flood. Holy Trinity has hired a geotechnical and civil engineer to prepare drainage plans for the site. Holy Trinity is paying all of the maintenance costs for this development.

Antonio Rezoning of former Union Hospital lands Council voted 6-1 to rezone the former Union Hospital lands at 455 Fairford Street East from Community Service/Institutional District (CS) to Core Mixed Residential District (R4). Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Council purchased this property from the Five Hills Health Region in 2015 for the purpose of re-sale. City administration has conducted an assessment to see if the property is suitable for redevelopment. The property needs to be rezoned to attract developers. Swanson was “befuddled” as to why council bought the land in the first place, since administration said in 2015 that the municipality would make money from it. Now administration wants to sell the land without modifications. “For 10 years I was the person who maintained this property,” he said. “I can remember a couple of times where water came up to the building there.” Administration is not looking to place any zoning restrictions on that property because of flood concerns, said Michelle Sanson, director of planning and development ser-

Bylaws By similar votes of 6-1, council approved bylaws around fire safety and the commercial and industrial tax phase. Swanson opposed both motions. The fire safety bylaw provides the framework for everything the fire department is responsible for with prevention, education, extinguishment of fires and for preservation of property and life. The commercial and industrial tax phase bylaw amends the current bylaw to include a three-year, 100-per-cent exemption for distilleries or similar businesses that do not generate revenue during the first three years of operations. This tax exemption does not apply to properties in tax arrears. The next council meeting is April 22.

Resident proposed a local tax should be added to Amazon’s deliveries By Jason G. Antonio - Express Reporter

Clayton Finnell is concerned that online retail giant Amazon is ruining Moose Jaw’s businesses, so he wants city council to apply a $1 tax on all packages delivered to residents. Finnell developed this idea since he wants to make the City of Moose Jaw money, he told city council during its April 8 regular meeting. He pointed out the community’s small businesses are being “slaughtered by the internet.” Amazon handles 95 per cent of all online retail purchases, while other online retailers look after the rest, Finnell claimed. He wants to combat Amazon’s reach and prevent it from stealing from small businesses here. City council did not ask any questions of Finnell after his presentation. During a break, Mayor Fraser Tolmie informed Finnell that his suggestion was simply not possible since council didn’t have that kind of power. The next regular council meeting is April 22.

Provincial Court

Teen becomes emotional after being sent back to jail By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Tears began streaming down the face of a 17-year-old boy after he learned he would be remanded back into custody until his next court appearance. The boy — who can’t be named because he is underage — made his first appearance in Moose Jaw provincial court on April 8. He is charged with assault with a weapon (a knife), breach of an undertaking, and failing to keep the peace. The Crown planned to proceed by indictment on the charge of assault with a weapon and summarily with the remaining two charges, said Robbie Parker, regional Crown prosecutor. The Crown is also opposed to the teenager’s release. An indictable offence is more serious, while a summary offence is less serious. With the boy remanded back into custody, a bail report was to be prepared for his rescheduled appearance

Moose Jaw provincial court sits every Monday to Thursday. Photo by Jason G. Antonio again on April 11, said Judge Daryl Rayner. Upon hearing that he would not be released, the 17-yearold became emotional. “Why can’t I just go home?” the boy sobbed. “Please,

like I’ll do anything, please.” “There’s not much I can do,” replied Rayner, noting the bail verification report needs to be prepared before anything can happen. The teenager’s father then stood up and also pleaded with the judge for the boy’s release. The father asked if his son could be remanded to the hospital so he could receive mental health treatment. “He needs it big time,” the father said. “You put him in jail, he’ll freak out in jail again and he’ll end up with more charges.” Judge Rayner suggested the father speak with legal aid lawyer Suzanne Jeanson about this situation. The court could look at a different placement for the teenager, such as a hospital. Until then, the boy would be kept at the Paul Dojack Youth Centre in Regina.

Accused asks to remain on probation to deal with his psychological issues By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Recognizing that he has psychological issues that need addressing, Mark Anthony Palmer asked a judge to let him remain on probation so he could deal with his problems. Appearing in Moose Jaw provincial court on April 8, Palmer faced two charges of assault and three charges of breaching a probation order, including failing to keep the peace and be of good behaviour; contacting his victims or being near them; and being near the workplace or residence of his victims. Judge Daryl Rayner wondered if Palmer, 53, of Moose Jaw, needed a lawyer or if he planned to represent himself. Palmer explained that the Crown pros-

ecutor originally offered him a deal of probation for a year. Palmer thought he needed only six months but realized the prosecutor’s suggestion “was a masterstroke” and he needed more help than he realized. “I do have a lot of issues, specifically psychological,” Palmer said. He explained he is taking programs to help him get better, such as anger management. He wanted his charges held over until his probation is finished in June. Palmer then handed the court clerk a list of programs he is taking to address his mental health needs. “Up until this little glitch, I’m doing very well,” he added. “I don’t care if

Judge Rayner explained to Palmer that to waive delay between now and June meant the latter wouldn’t hold the Crown responsible for the delay. “Mr. Parker’s always been fair to me, so I would never put that on him,” Palmer replied. Rayner then agreed to adjourn Palmer’s charges to June 11 for a plea. He also mandated that Palmer keep the peace and be of good behaviour until then, while also staying away from his two victims.

I plead guilty or not. I just need these programs. The last thing on my mind is grabbing a lawyer.” What Palmer is saying is understandable, said Robbie Parker, regional Crown prosecutor. Palmer’s charges would need to be amended to ensure there is a condition to take programming as required. Parker wouldn’t object to more onerous conditions if that is what Palmer wanted. “At some point, Mr. Palmer’s got to decide what he’s doing as far as a plea,” Parker added. He didn’t have a problem with delaying Palmer’s charges

Memorial Field ball diamond renamed to honour dedicated volunteer By Jason G. Antonio Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Lyle Helland was a dedicated volunteer who looked after Memorial Field for 27 years and now the municipality would like to post-humously honour him by renaming part of Memorial Field after him. During City Council’s April 8th regular meeting, a motion was unanimously approved to name the ball diamond at Memorial Field the Lyle Helland Diamond. The overall space will remain as Memorial Field, but the diamond itself will be renamed.

The motion came as a recommendation from the most recent parks and recreation advisory committee meeting. Memorial Field is located on Caribou Street east. “As the letter (from Helland’s family) states, for him it was a labour of love to take care of that field,” said Coun. Brian Swanson. Although the overall complex — including stadium and surrounding area — could use some upgrades, “the maintenance of the (ball) field was of extremely high quality.” In the letter, Helland’s family pointed out that he lived for his family, friends and sports. He always gave everything to care for Memorial Field. The family thought renaming the complex would be “the perfect way to show our appreciation for everything he did, not only for the ball field, but for each and every person (who) walked through its doors.” Helland was inducted into the Moose Jaw Warriors Hall of Fame in 2013 as a builder for his role with the team, including helping bring the team to Moose Jaw. According to a report from city administration, research indicated the first mention of Memorial Field was in 1946 after the Second World War. Conversations with the Royal Canadian Legion revealed the organization had no knowledge of why the park was given that name. There are no veterans’ monuments that exist at Memorial Field to serve as a war memorial, the report continued. The field is used mainly by ladies’ slo-pitch and men’s fastball, plus other activities such as football to weddings. Lyle Helland and his wife, Frani, took over operations of Memorial Field in 1991, and for 27 years, ensured that all areas of the fastball diamond and stadium were in excellent condition for players, officials and spectators, the report said. Helland was committed to the field every summer until 2018; he died on Oct. 23, 2019 at age 84. The report pointed out Moose Jaw sports fields — such as Bell Park and Optimist Park — have names, with the diamonds named after people who contributed to

Lyle Helland volunteered at Memorial Park for 27 years. File photo the community. The parks and recreation committee’s sub-committee recognized the historical significance and background of Memorial Field in the community. Administration sought public and stakeholder feedback about the renaming request, the report said. Forty-seven emails related to Memorial Field were received. The feedback showed: • 61 per cent of feedback supported naming the ball diamond after Lyle Helland • 15 per cent of the feedback supported naming the entire complex the Lyle Helland Memorial Field, to honour both Helland and the field’s historical significance • 24 per cent did not support renaming the field, as per the historical importance or cost associated with the renaming The next city council meeting is April 22.

Favourites live up to billing during senior high school badminton championships Cornerstone wins team title, top regular season performers dominate city tournament Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

In the Moose Jaw high school senior badminton league heading into the city championships, the pre-tournament favourites picked up right where they left off in their quest for a city title, with each of the regular season standouts claiming their respective divisions. Leading the way was Cornerstone Christian School Falcons Grade 9 Kenzie Behrns, who posted a pair of commanding wins in the playoff round, defeating eventual bronze medalist Jenna Meili of Vanier 21-15, 21-9 in the semifinal before taking a 21-11, 21-9 win over Central’s Katie Coulson in the gold medal game. “It’s pretty crazy actually, to be in Grade 9 and win,” Behrns said shortly before

Medalists from the girls singles high school badminton championships are Jenna Meili (Vanier, bronze), Kenzie Behrns (Cornerstone, gold) and Katie Coulson (Central, silver).

Medalists from the girls doubles high school badminton championships are Hinano Fujihara and Ari Shimada (Cornerstone, bronze), Serena Schlamp and Caitlin Miller (Peacock, gold), Claire Astrologo and Juliana Gerapusco (Vanier, silver).

High school badminton city championships are Cooper Cole and Logan Hauser (Vanier, bronze), Olivier and Xavier Bilodeau (Ecole Ducharme, gold), John Ferris and Zach Beitel (Cornerstone, silver). receiving her first senior gold medal. “I have four amazing coaches, they come to every practice and work one on one with me since badminton started and they really helped me.” After sweeping the regular season league nights, Behrns had an idea that gold could be in the cards. But Coulson – the reigning silver medalist from last season – didn’t make it easy. Meili defeated Central’s Affat Kashif 2116, 21-7 to win bronze. Vanier’s Hayden Ma had a bit of tougher series of league night draws in boys singles, but his only losses were to outof-town players who were ineligible for cities. So when it came time to face players from Moose Jaw alone, success was in the cards for the defending champion from 2018. Ma took a 21-13, 21-16 victory over Central’s Spencer Newans in the semifinal and downed Joel Goddard of Cornerstone in a close battle 23-21, 21-17. Cole Morash defeated Newans for bronze. The boys doubles league season has been largely a walk in the park for brothers Olivier and Xavier Bilodeau of Ecole Ducharme, but things became plenty in-

The final was much smoother, though, as they downed Cornerstone’s John Ferris and Zach Beitel 21-14, 21-14 to claim gold. “It was kind of different from where we used to play before back in Yellowknife, there’s a lot more competition and some of the teams gave us a good run towards the end,” said Olivier who with Xavier and their family moved here this past summer. “It was pretty good.” The Grade 12 duo used their experience to perfection throughout the year, and cities were no exception. Cooper and Hauser repeated as bronze medalists with a 21-16, 16-21, 21-18 win over Cornerstone’s Ben Lewis and Noah Braun. Central’s Dream Perez and Alex Yee had also had a solid regular season and parlayed that success into mixed doubles gold after settling for bronze last year.

When the 2018-19 synchronized swimming season kicked off this fall, members of the Moose Jaw Aqua Otters were planning to take a more relaxed approach to the sport as they looked to grow their base of recreational swimmers into a competitive group. As a result, there were no plans to take part in competitions during the season, instead opting focus on skill development and progression rather than diving straight into performance-focussed action in front of judges. Coach Alysa Beattie said at the time that it would be “a year or two, max” before they’d be skilled and experienced enough to be back in provincial stream events and proving themselves against other competition. Five months into the season, a total of 17 swimmers

Alysa Beattie (coach), Emily Boese, Ava Rosso, Macey Binsfeld took to the pool in the 10-and-under division.

Members of the 10-and-under team include Emma Klemenz, Aspen Olafson, Lauren McMullin, Molly Peterson, Kennedy Saretski, Amina Mnaymneh, Eowyn Hutchinson, Madelyn Adam, Alysa Beattie (coach) and Xyra Seargeant from the club took to the pool during the Sadie Caulder Knight Provincial Stream competition recently in Saskatoon, and the results were outstanding, with all three teams that competed finishing in the top four in their respective divisions. Leading the way was the team of Emily Boese, Ava Rosso and Macey Binsfeld, who took the first-place ribbon in the 10-and-under division. Theirs wasn’t the only top three showing, as the team of Callie Klemenz, Abbi Allan, Anna Thorn, Lara Shkuratoff and Tatiana Vickaryous claimed second place in

Members of the Otters’ 13-15 year-old their 13-15 age class. Also competing in the 10-and-under division was the team of Emma Klemenz, Aspen Olafson, Lauren McMullin, Molly Peterson, Kennedy Saretski, Amina Mnaymneh, Eowyn Hutchinson, Madelyn Adam and Xyra Seargeant, who would put together a fourth-place showing. In addition to the work of Beattie to prepare the team, the Otters also thanked Raelin Nesvold, Ali Pohl, Myriam Levesque and Samantha McLaren for their work on the deck at the 15 Wing pool to prepare the youngsters for the event. The Otters’ season came to a conclusion on Sunday, Apr. 14th with their annual Water Show at the Kinsmen Sportsplex.

Moose Jaw Lacrosse Association honours past, present, future with new display Trophy case in Kinsmen Sportsplex to show off memorabilia, honour past players Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The first thing one notices when checking out the new Moose Jaw Lacrosse Association display in the Kinsmen Sportsplex – besides the entire impressive package itself – is the framed jersey of Mustangs standout Ken Stewart. One of the legendary players from the team’s stunning heyday through the 2000s, Stewart was killed in an automobile accident in 2013 and has been honoured by the organization ever since in the form of the Ken Stewart Memorial Scholarship. So it made perfect sense that he would be one of the players honoured by the organization with a prominent part in display when it was officially revealed during a special ceremony on Sunday afternoon. Among those on hand was Ken’s father Barry Stewart, who himself was integral in the evolution and growth of the sport at the turn of the century and beyond – and whose role in so many impressive MJLAX victories helped make the display necessary in the first place. “It’s nice to see the entire sport being

Members of the Moose Jaw Lacrosse Association community gather for a photo around the new display in the Kinsmen Arena. honoured here; there’s a lot of history in the city and organizations who lose their history lose their way,” Stewart said. “So I’m really happy to see the entire thing, especially from a family perspective; it’s awesome to see something like this and this has always been a class organization.” The display case was a years-long effort that involved nearly two dozen people gathering memorabilia, trophies and outright building the impressive structure.

It’s now nigh unmissable as it sits next to the north entranceway to the arena proper. “There are a lot of memories in there, past, current and future stuff that’s been going on, so it’s great to be able to honour everyone in this organization,” said MMJLAX president Cody Nidesh. “This has been going on since November, just reaching out to people, grabbing stuff, figuring out if we’re going to do this and that, it’s been a long process.”

Just as one example, Nidesh mentioned the work of former Mustangs standout Derek Burns and his efforts in contacting people to gather donations for the display, hours of work that resulted in an impressive array ranging from photos, newspaper articles to even game-used equipment from some of the famous players from lacrosse’s past in the city. “Everyone was more than willing to help out, and this is for the families here, to honour them because they’re a big piece of how we got started with this trophy case,” Nidesh said. That’s no surprise to Stewart, whose original efforts to help create that kind of atmosphere have carried on well past his days of heaviest involvement in the sport. “Our organization might not be the biggest in the city but we certainly have a family concept and team concept and it’s ‘once a Mustang, always a Mustang’,” he said. “We have some great people in place on the executive team and I see nothing but great things here now and in the future.”

Gymtastiks shine again during Yorkton Invitational Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Gymtastiks gymnastics club have all 12 of their athletes from the Junior Olympics 7 to 3 divisions officially qualified for the provincials tournament after their showing at the recent Yorkton Invitational during the Apr. 5-7 weekend. Competing in the J.O. 3 (born 2006 and before) class, Wagner took first place on bars to go along with second-place showings on vault and floor and fifth on beam to claim first place in the all-around. J.O. 7 competitor Shaina Closs won first place in vault and floor, third on bars and fifth on beam, but the competition was so close in her division that she ended up third in the all-around. In the J.O. 4 (2007 and before) division, Haneefah Yusef had a fourth-place finish in vault on her way to a 10thplace showing all around. Blake Maltais picked up a second place ribbon in vault and would finish fifth in the J.O. 4 (2008 and after) class, one spot ahead of teammate Katelyn Sauer in sixth. Her top showing came with sixth place on floor. The J.O. 3 (2008) division was a hub of Gymtastiks activity, led by Maci Lowry and her third-place all-around performance. Along the way she landed fourth on beam and sixth on bars. Gracelyn Blanchard was sixth overall, tying for first place on vault; Eliana Ike was tied for second on bars and third on vault but was unable to post top-10 showings in the other apparatus and finished eighth. Sienna Bollinger had a fifth-place finish in vault and ended up 18th all-around. Gymtastiks competitor Jodan Gettis didn’t compete due to illness but had previously landed scores necessary to advance to provincials. In the J.O. 3 (2009-10) class, Evelyn White had a fourthplace performance on bars and finished fifth all around; Logan Temple ended up sixth on bars and tied for 11th overall.

Moose Jaw Minor hockey, Warriors announce partnership Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Minor Hockey Assoc. (MJMHA) and Warriors are officially forming a renewed partnership and sponsorship agreement that would see the AAA team name changed from the Generals to Warriors, along with a host of other efforts designed to create a mentorship and advisory role between the Western Hockey League team and Moose Jaw minor hockey. “For us, we’re really excited about this announcement,” said minor hockey president Patrick Boyle. “We’re looking to create that culture shift within hockey in Moose Jaw, and you have to start at the top. Culture shifts are slow, but we’re showing that we’re becoming integrated with the Moose Jaw Warriors, a world class organization here in North America and Canada, so we want to be very close with them and keep that partnership going. “This sport is so much more than the game itself; it’s the work ethic and the Warriors and their values…this is the direction we’re trying to go.” Boyle added that having the opportunity to work with the vast knowledge and success the Warriors staff have on hand -- especially with the near universal involvement of the WHL team’s experience with Hockey Canada – will only be beneficial. “We’re going to look at doing more coaching development things like having Tim Hunter and Hockey Ted Talks and stuff like that,” Boyle said. “A lot of this came up in conversation with board members and in conversations with the Warriors; there’s some interest there and it’s great we’ve gone down that path.

Moose Jaw Minor Hockey Association president Patrick Boyle offers his organization’s take on the partnership with the WHL Warriors. “It’s great to have that openness between the two organizations and having the two of us working together.” Moose Jaw Warriors general manager Alan Millar wasn’t available for the press conference due to his Hockey Canada duties but expressed his happiness with the deal in a news release. “We are excited that the young men representing Moose Jaw in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA League will now be carrying the Warriors name and wearing Warriors colours,” Millar said. “Our team believes the development of young people on and off the ice and the development of our coaches is essential throughout our minor hockey system. We look for-

The event also acted as the official reveal of the rest of the AAA Warriors coaching and management staff – former players with the AAA squad Carter Smith, Carter Davis and Evan Schwabe will act as assistant coaches and Jeremy Ebbett will take over as general manager alongside head coach Trevor Weisgerber (see related story).

AAA Warriors looking forward to new era with WHL Warriors New deal expected to have wide-ranging benefit for Sask. Midget AAA Hockey League squad Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

With the range of organizational changes that have taken place over the course of the last year in the Moose Jaw Minor Hockey Association with the then Moose Jaw Generals AAA hockey organization, there were rumblings of more changes afoot and that came last Friday. The MJMHA and Western Hockey League Warriors announced a new sponsorship deal between the two organizations that would immediately and directly impact the AAA squad – first with a name change to the AAA Warriors (see related story) and also with a host of other benefits to the younger team. New head coach Trevor Weisgerber has liked what he’s seen so far, with the potential for impressive things in the near future. “It’s going to be good,” Weisgerber said. “We’re looking forward to it, obviously the Warriors have been around for a long time and now we’re just piggy backing off them and it’s great.” While there are many aspects of the deal to be looked at and enhanced, just having the potential to work with WHL Warriors’

Bob Dougall (WHL Warriors board of directors), Patrick Boyle (president, Moose Jaw Minor Hockey), Steven Kesslering (AAA Warriors veteran), Ben Wourms-Rowe (AAA Warriors veteran), Trevor Weisgerber (AAA head coach), Carter Davis (AAA assistant coach), Carter Smith (AAA assistant coach), Jeremy Ebbett (AAA Warriors general manager). coaching staff – head coach Tim Hunter, assistants Mark O’Leary and Scott King -- is going to be a benefit in and of itself. On hand for the press conference were a pair of Generals veterans in Ben WourmsRowe and Steven Kesslering. The duo had an opportunity to model the new AAA Warriors jerseys – featuring the WHL

team’s alternate crest as their main and the WHL Warriors logo on the shoulders – and the initial reactions were nothing but positive. The team recently went through their spring camp and Wourms-Rowe was impressed with what he’s seen so far. “Trevor is obviously a great coach, he has

a lot of experience coaching through minor hockey,” he said. “We’ve had a couple ice sessions with him and he knows how to run a good practice, so I’m excited about it… obviously we haven’t made playoffs the last two years so we have a lot of new kids coming in. There will be a lot of new faces and a new style maybe, so I’m excited.” The event also acted as the official reveal of the rest of the AAA Warriors coaching and management staff – former players with the AAA squad Carter Smith, Carter Davis and Evan Schwabe will act as assistant coaches and Jeremy Ebbett will take over as general manager. “We have a great group of guys, and it’s like I said in the past, it’s all about development for these kids,” Weisgerber said. “I just wanted to make sure that we have a good staff in place so we can work on the development part, and all three of these guys have great knowledge of the game, so I’m looking forward to working with those guys as well and doing what we can to make everyone better.”

Lynbrook open tee-to-green with impressive conditions Greens in near perfect shape despite oppressively cold winter Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Lynbrook Golf Club 18-hole course layout opened tee-to-green this week – yes, tee-to-green – with the greens themselves looking to be in mid-summer shape despite weathering one of the coldest winters in recent memory. “They wintered really, really well,” said Lynbrook pro shop manager Dwight Bearchell. “I guess there was enough snow that they didn’t get hurt really bad and they’re in great shape. It’s looking really, really good…. They dress them in the winter before things happen and those tarps they put on over top, they work to have a little greenhouse effect. So they’re in amazing shape.” Bearchell said even greens superintendent Owen Morhart was surprised just how good of shape things were in once the tarps came off. “And I was surprised, too, I just went out and did a little tour; it might have been a little cool out but things are looking really good,” Bearchell

It might have been a somewhat chilly afternoon, but there were plenty of golfer taking swings on the Lynbrook driving range on Friday. said. “We have no water accumulation, usually in the spring of the year on No. 2 and No. 4, there’s a bit of water off to the sides but it’s really good this year, too.” Players were wasting no time hitting the links, with the course itself seeing a steady stream of early birds taking advantage of the fortuitous conditions. That’s on top of

the driving range, which on Friday afternoon was lined with people taking some of their first swings of the season. “We’ve already had people trickling in here because they’ve been bottled up all winter, so they’re getting their memberships and hitting balls,” Bearchell said. “You could hardly get on the range last Sunday, there were people everywhere.” The main tournament schedule for the season has already been set, with the Senior Men’s on June 19, Canada Day and Civic Holiday tournaments on July 1 and Aug. 5, the Club Championship on Aug. 17-18, 49th Annual Women’s Rosebowl on Aug. 21-22, Labour Day tournament on Sept 1-2 and the return of the Carl Jorgenson Par-27 Classic on Sept. 7-8. For tee times and more information, be sure to call the Lynbrook pro shop at 306-692-2838 or check out www. lynbrookgolf.org.

Dead fish in Plaxton’s Lake due to cold winter Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Dozens of dead fish are popping up in Plaxton’s Lake in the Wakamow Valley, the result of a colder than usual winter. The ice that develops on the lake during the winter can sink deeper below the surface as the temperature drops explained Todd Johnson, incoming CEO of the Wakamow Valley Authority. This robs the water of oxygen and kills off larger fish; smaller fish survive since they need less oxygen. Residents shouldn’t be too concerned; there is nothing humanly possible to alleviate the situation once the weather turns frosty. “The weather does what it does,” he added. Johnson has visited Plaxton’s Lake to check out the dead fish. He has seen seagulls eating the fish, while when there was ice, he noticed raccoon tracks leading onto the ice and encased fish. He believes that predators munching on the dead fish is nature’s sign that the circle of life goes on. “I wouldn’t pick it up, (however),” laughed Johnson.

care of itself.” What might surprise some people is there are fish that size in the lake, Johnson pointed out. What’s positive about this situation is there are fish coming into Plaxton’s Lake to use it. What’s also exciting is the lake is a growing environment where people can fish in the city in the summer, he continued. There is a chance fisherman could catch one of those fish, without having to travel elsewhere. The Wakamow Valley Authority is working with the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation to increase angling. Both groups hope residents will discover there are fish in the water here and come fish for free this summer. Residents can use free rods and equipment as part of this initiative. Johnson added this initiative would be a good experience for people living in Moose Jaw who want to take their children fishing for the first time.

By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Solar power systems offer local businesses, farmers cost advantages The arrival of solar power installer Sycamore Energy to Moose Jaw brings 21st Century energy technology to the city. Make no mistake, the use of energy from fossil fuels will be around for a long time but alternatives like solar will become increasingly common. Harnessing free energy from the sun to create electricity has always made sense, but economics didn’t warrant the investment. Solar power requires a large upfront investment with no costs after that until the panels wear out in 25 to 30 years. Twelve years ago, solar energy cost 18.5 cents a kilowatt hour to produce, compared with current SaskPower rates of 10 cents for residential customers and 13.5 cents for rural customers. Sycamore Energy says it can produce solar power at eight cents a kilowatt

hour. Various factors have allowed solar to be more competitive since 2007. Foremost is technology increasing efficiency of solar panels, capturing up to 30 per cent of the sun’s energy, up from between 15 per cent and 17 per cent. A decade ago the rush into manufacturing solar panels pushed up the price of the special silica (sand) placed between the layers of glass in the panels. The sand shortage has been resolved. While SaskPower allowed solar use 12 years ago, policies have changed so credits for solar power in excess of current needs can be applied to future use – allowing solar systems to cut the power bill from SaskPower to zero. Lastly, SaskPower offers rebates of up to 20 per cent of solar system cost. Another program allows consumers

to build one megawatt systems to sell power to the utility. During a presentation to the local Chamber of Commerce, Sycamore CEO Alex Stuart mentioned the instance of a farmer who objected to the location of solar panels in a cultivated field that grossed between $350 and $600 an acre from crops. The objections melted way when he was informed solar power returns $24,000 an acre. A 12-year lease on solar systems matches current power bills to the lease payments. System ownership and completely free power happens for the next 13 years of warranty on panel life. Solar power has other benefits: avoiding future power rate increases which have amounted to 27 per cent over the last five years; avoiding the dreaded carbon tax; and supplying power when

major grid systems go down. Solar is becoming more common in the world especially in Western Europe. California recently mandated solar power in all new buildings. Electricity accounts for about two per cent of farm expenses according to a 2016 study by the United States Department of Agriculture. Electricity can make up six per cent of small business costs. Reducing that bill to zero with solar energy will improve profitability and competitiveness. All those huge farm sheds and workshops in rural Saskatchewan present ready-made opportunities for cost-cutting solar systems. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Family excited to begin building Habitat for Humanity-sponsored home By Jason G. Antonio - Express Reporter

Tanya Legare is excited to start building her new home, as the Habitat for Humanity-sponsored dwelling will provide a safe, healthy place in which her two daughters can grow up. “I would have never guessed that I would be here. Once I became single with two girls, I didn’t know where I would go or where I would end up,” she said. “I did not think I would be owning a home in this day and age (due to the market and home prices).” Legare first applied for a Habitat home in 2010 but did not have the qualifications to move forward. She was hesitant to make another attempt, but her family and friends convinced her it was the right time.

With the foundation of the building behind them, the Legares, along with politicians and dignitaries, used gold shovels to symbolically kick off construction. Building the new 1,400-square-foot house is expected to take nine months, with the Legares having to contribute 500 hours of sweat equity labour. It will have three bedrooms, giving Legare’s daughters their own rooms and extra space. This is the ninth home Habitat for Humanity has built in Moose Jaw since 2008. The house is expected to be worth $250,000. More than 100 families have applied for a Habitat home since 2008, said Bill Harris, committee chair of Habitat Moose Jaw. It has been amazing for him to have attended every family introduction and subsequent key presentations. One benefit of the new home’s location is it is two

St. Barnabas

The crocus is the sure-fire sign of spring. Often emerging even before the snow hasn’t completely melted, we take heart when we see the annual sign that spring is on its way. The hardy perennial bloom that rises out of the native prairie takes on a mauve hue, from deep and dark to pale and light. Usually found on native land, they prefer the south-facing hills and well-drained soil. Some years, as it was at our home last year, they are prolific; a blanket of mauve painting the hillsides. While their presence is fleeting (they only last a couple weeks), they symbolize new life, joy and warm weather to come. A part of the iris family of plants, there are over 80 different types of crocuses all over the world. Just as crocuses are a dependable sign of warmer weather on the way, the Word of God speaks of many signs that are indicators of what is to come. We are all familiar with the passage in Luke, “And this will be a sign to you, you will find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” Acts 2 speaks of signs happening in the heavens: “And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke.” In John, there is record of Jesus’ first miracle; turning water into wine: “This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.” What about the signs of Jesus’ return? We find that in Mark 13 when the disciples asked Jesus, “’Tell us, when will these things happen? And what supernatural sign should we expect to signal your coming and the completion of this age?’ Jesus answered, ‘At that time deception will run rampant. So beware that you’re not fooled! ...You will hear rumors of wars nearby...nations will go to war against each other and kingdom against kingdom ...terrible earthquakes... famines and riots.’” There are also sure-fire signs that show we follow Jesus. “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:35) I like the verse in 1 Peter 3 suggesting that an unbelieving husband will “...be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of (their) lives.” This is a sure sign that the love of God is oozing out of the wife when she does not preach or show disregard to her husband but serves him out of a heart of love. Another unwavering sign of those who are followers of Jesus is this: “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Signs are for our benefit. They are sign posts, directives, indicators, or signals of whether we are on the right or wrong path. They direct us in the way to go. We recently took a trip around Cypress Hills and if it weren’t for signs, I’m not sure we’d have ended up back at home. We had to keep our eyes open for the signs of what was ahead. In the same way, let’s keep our eyes open to what is ahead in the spiritual world. Let’s not fall asleep or become apathetic to what is going on around us.

FREY

THOMPSON, JO ANN LEONA January 3, 1931 – April 8, 2019

JoAnn Thompson, aged 88 years of Moose Jaw SK, passed away on April 8, 2019. She will be greatly missed by daughter Barbara (Garnet) Boese, son Bruce, brothers John (Pat) Zmetana and Fred (Lois) Zmetana, sister Jeraldine (David) Galecki, and sister-in-law Hermina “Mina” Clark. She is predeceased by her husband Hillis and by her parents Steve and Leona (Storozuk) Zmetana. JoAnn was born and raised in Moose Jaw. Her first language was Ukrainian, and she loved all things Ukrainian throughout her life. JoAnn attended Westmount School and A.E. Peacock Technical High School. She enrolled in the Chicago School of Nursing correspondence program, completing her Certificate in Practical Nursing in 1952. JoAnn worked at the hospital in Rockglen SK, and the Providence and Union Hospitals in Moose Jaw. On February 14, 1953 she married Hillis Thompson after meeting at Temple Gardens Dance Hall in Moose Jaw. They spent the first years of their married life farming in the summer and moving into Moose Jaw to work during the winter. They eventually moved full-time to the Thompson family farm, where JoAnn’s love of cooking, baking, and gardening were prized skills. JoAnn worked hard on the farm taking great pride in running a farm household, tending gardens, raising chickens, delivering three course meals to the field during harvest time, and driving into town for equipment parts when break-downs happened in the field. Her pride and joy were her many flower beds around the farm yard. JoAnn was always an active volunteer for her many organizations including Sask. Flying Farmers, Boharm and Minto United Churches, and square dancing clubs to name just a few. She also enjoyed curling, dancing, and joining family and friends on trips and cruises. In 2012 JoAnn and Hillis moved from the Boharm farm into Moose Jaw. JoAnn will be remembered for her outgoing personality, love of her family, thoughtfulness, and (when needed) feisty disposition. Her cabbage rolls and butter tarts were coveted by family members. A Funeral Service will be held at Minto United Church, 1036 7th Ave. NW, Moose Jaw SK on Wednesday April 17, 2019 at 1:30 pm. Rev. Linda Tomlinson-Seebach will officiate. A private family interment will be held at Moose Jaw Cemetery. Flowers are gratefully declined. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice. In living memory of JoAnn, a memorial planting will be made by Jones - Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.wjjonesandson. com or www.parkviewfuneralchapel.ca (Obituaries). Dayna Chamberlain - Funeral Director

Bernhard Sadowski

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Emily Frey of Central Butte, SK on Sunday, February 17th, 2019. Emily was born on the family farm at Fox Valley, SK on July 4th, 1933. She was the second youngest of 12 children. She married Walter Frey on May 28th, 1953 in Moose Jaw, SK at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, and together they raised 4 children on the family farm north of Central Butte. She was predeceased by her husband, Walter in 2009; son, Randy in 2017; her parents and all of her siblings. Emily leaves to mourn, her children: Boyd, Reg, and Candace (Rod); daughter-in-law, Lillian (Randy); and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Emily and Wally had retired to Central Butte when leaving the farm. She enjoyed town life keeping busy with her flower gardens, going for walks, and coffee time with many friends uptown. She was very active with the Senior Centre activities that included curling and many different card games, as well as fundraising. Emily was a devout member of St. Mary’s Parish, helping out with donations of food for many functions throughout the years, as well as some of the duties of the church masses wherever she was comfortable. She enjoyed many shopping trips to the city and of course a meal out. Emily’s greatest passion was spending time with her family. She cherished all the visits, phone calls and special occasions with us and left us all with special memories. Once she began to have health issues, Emily moved into Iver Main in Central Butte in the fall of 2016 where she continued to live until her passing. While there, she met new friends and was reacquainted with old friends that she cherished her time with. The family wishes to thank all of the staff at Iver Main in Central Butte for their wonderful care and also to all the attending nurses and doctors on the second floor medicine in the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw for the support and care before mom’s passing. And a special thank you to Wrangler Hamm in emergency…we are so appreciative. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, April 27th, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 1064 3rd Ave NW, Moose Jaw, SK where Emily and Wally were married. Father Hector Seville will be the presiding celebrant and a private immediate family interment will take place at Sunset Cemetery. For those so wishing, donations in Emily’s name may be made to Iver Main Place Inc, Box 550, Central Butte, SK S0H 0T0. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.

Bernhard Sadowski went to be with the Lord on April 10, 2019 at age 88 after a struggle with cancer. Bernhard was predeceased by his wife Margaret (2000), by his parents John (1964) and Wilhelmine (1987), sister-in-law Lori (1998), brother Walter (2003), brother-in-law Fred Schneider (2007), daughter-in-law Heather (2015), and sister Erika (2017). Bernhard is survived by his wife Elizabeth (and family), brother Albert, his children Daniel, Wayne (Debbie), Ivan (Anna), Calvin (Ida), Lynden (Cheryl) and Loreena (Paul). He was very proud of his grandchildren Hannah (Cody), Monica (Curtis), Rebecca, Alaina, Jason (Kaila), Michael (Karlee), Eric, Andrea, Ethan and Abigail as well as great-grandson Bennett. He will be missed by his many nieces and nephews. Bernhard was raised on his parent’s homestead south of Secretan, SK. After completing Grade 10 at Thistledown school, he spent several years on the railroad as a telegraph operator. He then bought land in the Secretan area in 1957. He spent the next 59 years ranching and farming. In 2003, he married Elizabeth Wiebe (Dyck) and they spent many happy hours together playing music for seniors, family, and at the church in Mortlach. In 2015, Bernhard sold the farm and moved to Moose Jaw where he resided with Elizabeth until the time of his passing. Outside of farming, he had many interests including reading and music. He greatly loved playing the violin and no visit would be complete without opening up the hymn book and playing a number of songs with anyone present who could play a musical instrument. He also loved to travel and made several trips to Germany to see relatives, and to Poland where he visited the birthplaces of both his parents. Bernhard also loved to write poetry – “if it doesn’t rhyme it isn’t a poem”. He completed the third volume of his memoires earlier this year. The Funeral Service will be held at Parkview Funeral Chapel, 474 Hochelaga St W, Moose Jaw on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan, 200-4545 Parliament Ave, Regina, SK, S4W 0G3. In living memory of Bernhard a memorial tree planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services.
