Moose Jaw Co-op Association returns record $2.6 million cash to members By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Even with a five-week labour disruption, the Moose Jaw Co-operative Association posted the highest percentage of net earnings in 10 years. The Co-op showed $7.88 million net earnings — nine per cent of sales. Members share in nearly $2.6 million cash patronage dividends, an increase of $600,000 from 2017. “This year was not without its challenges,” commented President Marc Girard in the board of director’s report. “The Moose Jaw Co-op was not only able to weather storms but also continue to grow.” Sales increased 1.6 per cent to $87.5 million for the year ended January 31. Sales declines of five per cent in the marketplace operation were offset by a 10 per cent increase at the Agro Centre. Gas bar sales were about the same. Girard said the Co-op negotiated an acceptable labour contract. The patronage dividend increase was made partly possible by a $2.1 million boost in patronage refunds from wholesaler Federated Co-ops. The $15.6 million acquisition of Prairie Plains Agro, an independent crop input retailer, was negotiated last year with completion in 2019. “This acquisition will go far to diversifying the Co-op’s product lines, so we are as not dependent on fuel sales as well as giving the Co-op a better presence in the large agricultural community we serve.” General Manager Goeff Anderson said the Co-op input acquisition better diversifies the operation. “We don’t want to put all our eggs in one basket.” Patronage dividends pay eight per cent (9.3 cents a litre) on petroleum, seven per cent on food and pharmacy, 12 per cent on oil and grease, and five per cent on non-food purchases.



Anderson, who started in the GM position in February, commended 28 years of local leadership in ensuring long term sustainability by his predecessor Gerry Onyskevitch, who retired. “He took us through hard times in the ’80s when interest rates were 18 per cent. We not only survived we thrived.” Due to retirements, the Co-op hired a number of new managers: Devin Rucks from Shaunavon, food manager; Rod Schuett from Southern Plains Co-op, meat manager; Tim Wonsiak, grocery manager; Ron Gorham, petroleum manager; Christy Schuett, ag centre manager; and Maria Allen from Central Butte, acting grocery and produce. Brian Tittlemore was named crop protection manager. Michaela Turner has been hired as marketing and communications manager. During the year, the Moose Jaw Co-op supported many community groups including the hospital foundation, Wakamow, Central Collegiate legacy fund, early childhood education and awarded six $1,000 scholarships among the supports. Anderson said a survey of employees will be taken this year to improve engagement and development. “Without your support,” he told the members and employees at the annual meeting, “we wouldn’t be here tonight.” The first quarter of 2019 isn’t over but “we’re ahead of budget. I have fantastic staff, fantastic board, fantastic support.” Three directors re-elected by acclamation were Cam Howe, Joyce Rissling and Glenn Steinhauer. Ron Walter can be reached at

Diversity in students and skills highlight Sask Polytechnic convocation

More than 800 students covering wide range of trades and technologies honoured in 2019 convocation Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw campus has long been known for its incredible diversity, not only in the types of education and instruction it offers, but in the range of students who arrive from countries all over the globe to receive world-class training. That was on display during the 2019 Convocation Ceremony– students from India, Congo, Thailand, Nigeria and South Sudan crossed the stage to receive parchments after graduating from programs in business, health sciences, information technology, construction‌ essentially, if it’s a job that exists, Sask Polytech has a hand in it. That diversity in students and what the post-secondary institution has to offer was a main message in the President’s Address delivered by Dr. Larry Rosia – and how embracing change was going to be key to their lives going forward. Rosia pointed to changes in Saskatchewan that saw the province go from an agriculture-based economy to one that is embracing mining, oil and gas and technology, all within less than a century. And all along the way, workers were needed to provide skills that often either didn’t exist or were in their infancy at the time. That meant expanding the workforce. And that meant looking outside of traditional borders.

“As our world and province changed, we as an institution also have to change as teaching and learning evolve,â€? Rosia said before citing a passage form the book ‘Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of A.I.’ by Joseph Aoun. “One of the quotes that resonated with me was ‘by immersing faculty and staff and students in diversity and celebrating its lessons, we enrich their minds; we broaden their thinking and we build their valuable human literacy’,â€? Rosia said. “We have a very diverse student body at our Moose Jaw campus. Ours is a microcosm that enables us to appreciate the very understandings and values that people from different cultures bring to an issue or a situation. This will serve you well in the workplace and elsewhere.â€? Rosia added that such diversity also spreads to the impact graduates will have on the future and the world around them. “Each of you has certain gifts; each of you has unique talents which combined with the skills you can learn here will take you to levels you can never imagine,â€? he said. “To each and every one of you, I encourage you to fully immerse yourself in all that you do, in your work, in your families and in your communities. Each of you has unique gifts and talents; share them with others‌ know that Saskatchewan Polytechnic will always be there to help you

Col. Maryse Carmichael, the first female pilot and commanding officer with the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, also known as the Snowbirds. Carmichael was presented an Honorary Diploma, an award bestowed by Sask. Polytech to recognize extraordinary individuals who are making a difference in communities throughout Saskatchewan and beyond (see related story). The Governor General’s Bronze Medal for academic achievement was presented to Adult 12 student Colton Dietrich. The Student Outstanding Citizenship Award – presented to a student at each campus who has inspired and encouraged others to make positive changes – was won by Yashkaran Bagga, a graduate of the Geomatics and Surveying Engineering Technology Program.

Sask Polytech presents Lt. Col. Maryse Carmichael with Honorary Diploma Former Snowbirds commanding officer receives special award after distinguished career Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

What are your passions? What fuels you? What gives you the endless energy that will allow you to grow into a better version of yourself? Those were some of the questions retired Lt. Col. Maryse Carmichael asked the graduating students of Sask Polytechnic during her address at the 2018 Convocation Ceremony at Hildebrand Chapel in Caronport. Because once she answered those questions for herself, well, it all led to her moment at that podium on that stage at that moment. Carmichael was on hand to receive her first-ever honorary diploma, an award that came after one of the most distinguished careers the Royal Canadian Air Force has ever seen. “Saskatchewan is home now, after so many years living in Moose Jaw, and seeing Sask Polytech on a daily basis, I’m really honoured to receive something like this,” Carmichael said over a raucous din in the Chapel’s jampacked foyer after the event. “As I said to the graduates today, to me, it’s a passion and I think in life, if you have a passion and you work hard and aim for excellence, you can make your dreams come true as well… and you look at the energy here today, you see all the graduates and when you’re studying until 2:30 in the morning, it can be difficult to remember why you’re there, but this is what it’s all about.” Carmichael’s passion to be her best as a pilot and leader

Maryse Carmichael with her v-stole as part of her Honorary Diploma presentation. in the air force ultimately resulted in her racking up more than 3,500 hours in the air during her 22-year career. But it was flying one model of aircraft in particular – the Tutor jet fighter – that brought Carmichael her greatest pro-

fessional success. In November 2000, Carmichael became the first-ever female pilot with the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, better known as the Snowbirds. And she wasn’t done there, as in May 2010 she became the first female Commanding Officer of the Snowbirds. In between, she was the Operations Officer for the 436 Transport Squadron before taking over as the deputy wing operations officer at 3 Wing Bagotville – the very same base where when she was seven years old, she saw her first air show and fell in love with flying. After a distinguished career, academic institutions come calling with special honours. The Sask Polytechnic Honorary Diploma is presented to ‘recognize extraordinary individuals who are making a difference in communities throughout Saskatchewan and beyond; individuals who have made a significant contribution to education, business and industry or government and who are supportive of Sask Polytech’s vision, values and overall role in the local and provincial communities’. “To see an institution like Sask Polytechnic and what they do, with graduates from all over the world… it just speaks to the quality of the education and how much what they have to offer means,” Carmichael said. “That’s why it means so much to receive this honour and be a part of this ceremony.”

Community forum addresses newcomer concerns Larissa Kurz

As a part of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundations 50 Vital Community Conversations project, the City of Moose Jaw and the South Central Regional Immigration Program (SCRIP) hosted a luncheon to hear feedback from newcomers in the city. Around 100 guests took part in the forum, and project manager Dalise Hector felt there was a great turnout and a lot of good feedback. The forum took place in four languages — English, French, Swahili, and Arabic — and addressed both the needs and accomplishments of the community. “The whole point was to look at how we

can strengthen community through the presence of the newcomers who have made our community their home, and also how we can improve things for newcomers through our community,” said Hector. Transportation was one of the concerns mentioned, which Hector said has offered more information about how to address such an issue. The forum offered a chance for organizations to hear from newcomers, but Hector was also pleased to find that it offers a chance for newcomers to feel more included within the community. “[It was a chance] for all of those orga-

nizations to also hear a newcomer perspective and see how they might adjust things going forward and their programs or projects, so I think it was a huge benefit that way,” said Hector. “I think people are kind of calling for more conversations like this. There was more awareness,” added Hector. “Some newcomers are not even aware of in what way they can lend their voice to community building. So the awareness, I think, was already a chance for us to grow together as a community.” Much of the feedback also indicated that newcomers feel welcome in the notoriously friendly city, which Hector feels is

a great starting point for the future. She hopes to see more forums like this one in the future, to continue to collect feedback. “We’re looking for feedback from the whole community. We’re glad with the turnout we had, but we know there’s others who have thoughts on things,” said Hector. Hector noted that SCRIPS will likely do a forum like this annually, if possible, and that newcomers can certainly contact them to contribute their opinions any time.

Local Elks Lodge to host 90th annual provincial convention Matthew Gourlie

Moose Jaw is home to one of the oldest Elks Lodges in the country. The Moose Jaw Elks Lodge No. 7 hosted the second provincial conference in 1931 and this summer from June 9-12 the local lodge will host the Elks’ 90th annual provincial conference. “We always have played a role in the community,” said Harold Claffey, conference co-chair for the provincial conference. “We’re growing and we’re active. Right now, we have 56 lodges in Saskatchewan and about 1,200 members.” Claffey said that they expect to draw about 70 delegates and their families to the city for the convention that will be held at the Comfort Inn and at the Royal Canadian Legion hall. The Moose Jaw Elks are active in the local community with events, fundraisers and donations. In 2017, they donated to 30 different groups and organizations. “We’ve done the concession stand at Park Art every year for about 12 or 13 years and we’re doing that again this year. We’ve applied for a two-day concession at the Air Show and we do barbecue catering throughout the summer in the city and the surrounding area,” Claffey said. The Elks have a long history in Moose Jaw and as the name of their lodge indicates, they were the seventh Elks lodge to be formed. “The Elks of Canada was founded in 1912 and our local lodge was founded in 1913,” Claffey said. “Lodge No. 1 started in Vancouver, and what happened was that they got on a train and they would get off once in a while and start a new lodge. So, Moose Jaw is No. 7 and Regina is No. 9 – I’m not sure how that worked out – but they went across the country.” Moose Jaw hosted the third national Grand Lodge Convention in 1914 and hosted it again in 1940. In 1952 they started Elks Minor Football and in 1988 the entered into an agreement with the City to build Elks Athletic Field on Caribou Street West which opened in 1990. Significantly, they also operate the Saskatchewan Elks Seniors Homes in eight different communities – Moose Jaw, Esterhazy, Rosetown, Davidson, Hanley, Moosomin, Prince Albert and Nipawin. The goal of the Saskatchewan Elks Senior Homes is to provide appropriate living quarters and accommodations for Saskatchewan seniors. “It’s exclusive to Saskatchewan,” Claffey said. “Many years ago, back in the fifties, a man in Prince Albert who was a member of the Elks saw a need for seniors housing in that community and he built and started some senior

(submitted photograph) homes there.” The first 20 units were opened in Prince Albert in the fall of 1959 and Moose Jaw quickly followed suit and opened their own units locally in 1961. “We have senior homes in Moose Jaw on Home Street East,” Claffey said. “There’s a waiting list for all of our homes in Saskatchewan, including here in Moose Jaw.” The Elks currently operates 135 seniors’ units across the province. Moose Jaw last hosted the provincial meeting in 2010, although last year an honoured guest visited during their anniversary celebration last year. “Our Grand Exalted Ruler, our national president Ron Potter from Moosomin visited us last spring when we put on an anniversary celebration for our 105th anniversary and we put on a dinner at the Legion and had some fun,” Claffey said. The Saskatchewan Charity Appeal Raffle is one of the main fundraisers that the Saskatchewan Elks Foundation holds each year. The proceeds from the raffle go to support the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children and other community projects. The raffle prize is drawn at the provincial convention. Nationally the Elks are still doing good works in their communities. They boast 250 lodges coast to coast and 11,000 members. The Elks & Royal Purple Fund for Children is their national charity that provides financial assistance for the medical needs of children with hearing and speech disorders.

Kiwanis Club attempting revival for 100th anniversary Larissa Kurz

A service club with a rich local tradition is hoping to make a comeback. Elaine Crysler, former member of the Kiwanis Club and hopeful member of a revival club, noted that the original service club was formed in Moose Jaw in 1919, which makes 2019 a fitting year to bring the club back to Moose Jaw. “Had we stayed as a traditional group, we would have been a hundred years old this year. So, we’re planning on reviving that, but like I say, not in the same traditional format where we met once a week,” said Crysler. After disbanding in 2015 due to an issue of member’s availability, the Kiwanis Club remained dormant until an attempt last year to revive. Crysler found that there was some interest, Elaine Crysler, along with Kiwanis members, ring but it was the wrong time of year to ask people to commit the bell for the final time at the group’s last meeting their time to service projects. She has higher hopes this year. in 2015. (File photo) “We have a few members signed up already, but what we’re looking for is to have a good number so that we can have some great ideas,” said Crysler. Instead of hosting weekly meetings, the club will remain connected through messaging and adhere to a 3-2-1 format of the club; three hours per month of community service, two hours of social time with other club members, and a one-hour meeting if there is a large project to plan. The social commitment expectation isn’t too high, said Crysler; she’s hoping to provide service to the community but also supports to members. “It’s just a way to be together,” said Crysler. “So maybe we get together and just have a coffee, go to somebody’s house, have a coffee and chin wag, just for a little alone time and talking-to-adult-time, you know, that kind of thing.” Crysler is hoping to receive some more interest, as she feels that a club such as this one provides a unique service — working with youth. “I believe we’re the only service group that deals with children all the way from kindergarten to university. We have programs for them all the way through, which is great,” said Crysler. “I think Moose Jaw needs Kiwanis and Kiwanis needs to come back to Moose Jaw.” The programs previously run by the Kiwanis Club were delegated when the club disbanded in 2015, as well as the remainder of their funds. Crysler is really looking at this revival as a project starting from scratch, ready for fresh ideas. Interested members of the community can contact Crysler by email at or by calling (306) 693-9034.

Outpouring of support shown for struggling seniors’ associations Larissa Kurz

Due to funding concerns, the Moose Jaw & District Seniors Association (MJ&DSA) and the Cosmo Senior’s Centre are facing the reality of closure in the coming months. The two organizations called upon the public for a town hall meeting April 28 to discuss their future. Despite the poor weather, the Cosmo Centre saw a gym full of concerned citizens arrive to show their support for senior programming in Moose Jaw; an estimated more than 200 people attended the forum. Each attendee filled out a survey, to gauge what programs are being utilized, what programs are important, and the willingness of members to fight for further funding. Currently, the prevalent option that both organizations are seeking is for enough funding to cover their costs for the foreseeable future. The MJ&DSA currently requires an additional $50,000 to supplement their own fundraising to keep paying their utilities and insurance. Present at the meeting were council members Crystal Froese, Brian Swanson, and Scott McMann; Mayor Fraser Tolmie was not, which was mentioned by a concerned citizen. MLAs Greg Lawrence and Warren Michelson were also in attendance. The majority of concerns from the floor focused on the call for funding from the City of Moose Jaw, or even from the federal government — a point addressed by council member Brian Swanson in his own words and later by council member Scott McMann. “I think that for the situation to improve and move forward, the two organizations have to look at coming together,” said Swanson. “To maintain two separate organizations that are struggling will not be an easy sell to the people of Moose Jaw. . . I think that the appeal for city money, which I hear loud and clear, will be more easily made if there is some unity.” “We’re not going to solve all the issues,” said McMann. “I think we’ll try and do what we can from the city but that isn’t going to be the answer to your problems because you need to get younger folks, different ideas, different programs.” Council member Crystal Froese spoke

The gym at the Cosmo Senior’s Centre saw over 200 concerned citizens gather for the discussion. before Swanson and McMann, expressing her interest in supporting the seniors of Moose Jaw. “They are very important facilities here,” said Froese. “You definitely have my voice at council for this, they’re both very essential situations. I particularly have seen the benefits of both and the impact they have on our community.” The goal that both groups are focusing on currently is to obtain the funds to continue operating in their current locations, as any type of program changes or administrative reconstruction would require resources that they currently don’t have. “We did hear from a couple of council members talking about amalgamation and it’s not to say we haven’t had those discussions,” said Lori Friar, program coordinator at MJ&DSA. “We are really two separate entities and it is going to take a lot of work for the two of us because we have different thoughts about things.” Friars also acknowledged that the need for programming targeting a younger demographic is needed, but their lack of funds is holding the association back and taking first priority. “Right now in our minds, number one is having enough funds to be able to carry on, however we get that, and then build from there,” said Friars. “What we need are donations, what we

If it’s joining us, paying a membership, coming out and taking part in our programs, whatever it takes,” said Elaine Parsons, recording secretary of the MJ&DSA. “Because if we close the doors, there’s a lot of people out there that are going to sit at home and do nothing, and it’s sad.” Both organizations are asking people to

Highlights of the solutions offered from the floor: • to request federal funding under the umbrella of healthcare, as active senior citizens prove to rely less on the health care system • Filing both organizations as a charitable foundation in order to receive government funding for administrative costs • seeking a new lease in a different building better suited to the organizations’ current funds • combining the two organizations and focusing on one centre • requesting the city to donate the parking lot behind the MJ&DSA building, currently designated to the library, to Timothy Eaton’s for more accessibility • to consider expanding programs to attract a younger crowd of seniors, closer to the 50s or 60s age range, as recommended by council member Scott McMann • installing solar panels, through grant funding, to make use of solar energy which would cut utility costs for each building.

NDP’s climate plan would help residents transition to renewable energy sources: Meili By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Some of Moose Jaw’s small businesses and community groups are facing high utility costs, which Saskatchewan NDP leader Ryan Meili believes could be addressed if solar panels were installed to save money. This idea is part of the NDP’s plan to fight climate change. The climate plan is called Renew Saskatchewan, Meili explained, and would remove the costs to retrofit buildings with solar panels to make them more energy efficient. “We think it gives a lot of opportunity to organizations … to actually see their bills drop (and) save some of those costs, at the same time as being part of the transition to renewable energy we all want to see happen,” he said. Meili — who is from Moose Jaw — was in town last week and visited with several small businesses including Prairie Bee Meadery and Coteau Hills Creamery. He also met with the local CUPE representing educational workers, while he visited with seniors at the Timothy Eaton Gardens and the Cosmo Senior Citizens Centre. He expressed his concern about both seniors’ organizations possibly shutting down. What struck Meili when speaking with the businesses and seniors was their high power bills. He noted it costs tens of thousands of dollars up front to install solar panels or perform retrofits on buildings, which few people can afford. The NDP’s plan — through Renew Saskatchewan — is to have the Crown corporations lend money to businesses, farms, organizations and residents so they can install solar panels quickly. Their bills, said Meili, would go

This then creates chances for renovations, installations, manufacturing and employment opportunities in Moose Jaw. “One of the ways, as New Democrats, we want to improve the Saskatchewan economy is by helping more small businesses to establish themselves,” said Meili. “More to grow the economy from the grassroots up and give more opportunities for local companies to thrive.”

My bride and I have kept a modest collection of record albums or LPs (Long Play) and these are the recordings our sons grew up listening to, although after a few house-hold moves, my stereo and turntables were sold and never replaced, until recently. My wife gave me a beautiful gift of a new turntable that not only plays the record but will digitize the music for storage on my computer. That means the gadget will take the old analog signals and digitize them or convert them into a bunch of 1’s and 0’s so my com-

Education During his meeting with educational workers, it was made clear to Meili that Saskatchewan classrooms and schools are stressed. There are more immigrant students with English language needs, more students with special needs, and simply more students overall. “Staff are not able to keep up with it,” he said. “We’ve seen cuts in support staff and basically, just overall, cuts in the funding support to education. That really is a huge oversight.” These cuts don’t simply hurt students today, but they also hurt the students as the future workers of tomorrow, Meili continued. These cuts hurt the economy and the province’s well-being. Meili has heard the concerns about education around the province. He noted with so much pressure in schools, morale right now is low. “If teachers are stressed, they are not able to give their full attention, which worsens the quality of education,” he said. “We are hearing high numbers of (Workers’ Compensation Board) claims. It’s a bad recipe.” Reception from residents Meili still has family in Moose Jaw, so he visits them regularly. He is also in town regularly for outreach efforts with residents. He said he has received a “really warm reception” in coming to The Friendly City. “It’s really clear that the folks don’t feel they’ve been represented well,” Meili said, “and they’ve seen the results … . I’m very hopeful for our opportunities in Moose Jaw in the next election (in 2020).”

puter can store, recall, play and share. It is not a difficult process but a time-consuming procedure. What better opportunity to listen to and enjoy those than when digitizing? After our huge meal, I played an album I thought I had lost but was recently returned to me by a friend. When my sons heard it, they were able to sing the lyrics word for word. I thought that to be pretty cool but then I wondered if I had been a bad influence on our son’s musical tastes by playing all that rock and roll. All I had to do was think back on how my father would play Scottish bagpipe music and Mitch Miller Sing-a-long records on Sundays and quickly realized that while I would not go out and buy Mitch’s latest LP, it gave me a good basis to make my own decisions about music. I think that my sons have great taste in music because we played a variety of music, although a lot of it was slanted to Rock and Country Rock. That great musical taste was evident when the boys began to go through the LP’s picking their favorites to spin, remembering the songs they picked while playing air-guitar or air-drums and singing (badly). At first my twelve-year-old granddaughter might have been embarrassed at the sight of her beloved family acting like rock stars shredding and shrieking, but it was only a few moments before she joined the act by playing air-tambourine. It wasn’t long before Nana

dug out her collage of ticket stubs from concerts she has experienced, both with me and before we met and then the real fun began. We were able to match most of the ticket stubs, beginning with concerts from the 60’s. Some albums and the stories that accompanied them were colourful and entertaining to say the least. Nana had a ticket stub from a Rolling Stones concert and when we played the LP, we could not get any Satisfaction… No, no, no, but the 12-year-old in the group discovered that the old folks could get rocking and she liked the Rolling Stones. I knew she was interested in the Stones because, a while later, she commented that there were a lot of videos of them on U-Tube. Then Nana gave a Rolling Stones album to our granddaughter, which seemed to thrill both of them to tears. I just smiled and realized…there is hope for this generation. Let’s keep LP’s spinning.

you are always there whenever i call... you meet all my needs!

Family First Radiothon raises nearly $300,000 for Moose Jaw Health Foundation

Community support will see new lithotripsy unit, new anesthetic machine and start on campaign for new mammography machine at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

800 CHAB Family First Radiothon on Friday evening saw an amazing total of $299,684 raised. When you see that kind of support from the people of Moose Jaw and the surrounding area, it’s easy to find plenty of energy to push through to the end of a long, long run on air. “It’s worth it because it’s a really good cause and when you talk about being part of the community, it’s a true community effort,” Carnie said. “A lot of people, hundreds of people, come together for the Family First Radiothon. The Moose Jaw Health Foundation and the guys and gals at the radio station put a lot of effort into this particular show, but the community comes together with the fundraising and we’re just proud to be a part of it.” The fundraising goal for 2019 was $150,000, with the aim of purchasing a lithotripsy unit to dissolve kidney and bladder stones inside the body at the local hospital without necessitating a trip to Regina or Saskatoon. A lofty mark, but one the Radiothon hit in the span of seconds when the estate of Ken Loftus donated $185,000 to the event. “He was a friend of mine and lived in the same neighbourhood and was truly a wonderful guy, a humble person and very giving person. And frankly I didn’t know he had that much money,” Carnie said with a laugh. “It was just an incredible and kind donation.” As one would expect, Executive Director of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation, Kelly McElree felt much the same way and pointed out just how much that donation would accomplish. “The gift from Ken Loftus, that’s game-changing, because not only will we be able to purchase a lithotripsy unit, we’ll be able to purchase a brand new anesthetic machine that will further the quality of care at this hospital and now we’re able to launch into a digital mammography campaign to bring the next generation of mammography to our community. “It’s very humbling to see the level of generosity and caring that people have for this hospital, and the amazing

Members of 8oo CHAB and the Moose Jaw Health Foundation gather with the cheque for the final total from the Family First Radiothon. staff at this hospital…. we would not be able to achieve what we did without the generosity of our donors and the wonderful staff at Golden West Radio, who really take this event to heart and truly make it a Family First Radiothon.” Carnie saw and heard first hand just how much people cared through his time on air, and the results were simply awe-inspiring at times. “Just today, for example, a guy from the south country, he and his brother came in to have tests done and they dropped off some cash,” he said. “And then we had a lady from Eyebrow who happened to hear the Radiothon on the radio and she came in and made a cash donation. We had people dropping five bucks and 10 bucks, and some major contributions. But they all add up. “And all the money stays right here at home; it makes healthcare better for the entire community. It’s just a great event.”

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

A few weeks ago, I attended an inspirational and informational evening sponsored by Heartland Hospice Moose Jaw. While I was aware of the work this group is doing, I left that event even more grateful for the dedication of the volunteers and board members who give so much of themselves to provide comfort and quality of days. Lets us recognize and thank those involved with Heartland Hospice this week in particular as it is National Hospice Palliative Care Week. The purpose of hospice palliative care is to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying for those nearing the end of their physical life. It promotes opportunities for meaningful and valuable experiences and personal/spiritual growth, for both the dying individual, and their family. Hospice palliative care affirms life and regards dying as a normal process and intends neither to hasten nor to unduly postpone death. Recognizing a need for this type of care in our area, Heartland Hospice was established in 2014 with a goal

A Heartfelt Thank You to Heartland Hospice of supporting the provision of compassionate holistic care to those nearing the end of their physical life. While palliative care has been part of the health services offered in Moose Jaw for some time, the hospice model of delivering care is a more individual quality compassionate care. Thanks to the work of Heartland Hospice, a room at Pioneer Lodge has been designated as a Hospice Care space. The room is home-like, and the space is comfortable for families who are journeying with their loved one. A “Serenity Garden” is located just outside the hospice room. A multi-disciplinary team of health professionals, and well-trained, compassionate volunteers are closely involved to ensure that emotional, spiritual and physical needs are available. Heartland Hospice will also provide support to someone who would like to spend their final days in their own home. The recently launched “My Wish” Program is coordinated by Heartland Hospice to assist terminally ill individuals who are seeking peace and closure with the realization of a final wish. Wishes are intended to be simple and carry little cost, but be rich in meaning for patients, families, and health care providers. Heartland Hospice has partnered with other community agencies and sponsors to make an individual’s wish come true. Heartland Hospice has lots of excellent information on their website at This week is also Mental Health Week, a topic too im-

portant to miss. Just as, even when we aren’t ill, we need to take care of our physical health, so it is with mental health. The Canadian Mental Health Association offers 16 tips on their website to stay mentally healthy. Some examples are: • focusing on the positive; • getting outdoors; • staying active; • finding meaning; • connecting with others; and • disconnecting from screens. You can visit for more of these tips. Finally, this Sunday is a time to show appreciation for an important individual in all our lives. Mother’s Day is a time to reflect on and celebrate all Mothers. Whether they are biological moms, step-moms, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, friends, or whomever else we think of when we think of mother; Mother’s Day is for all women. They raised and nurtured us, taught us important lessons and picked us up when we fell down. We owe these women a debt we’ll never be able to repay. I hope everyone takes a moment to thank the women in their lives who love them in that special way only Mothers can – unconditionally, unequivocally, and unacquired, because thats what moms do. Happy Mother’s Day!

Wheat planting plans up, canola acreage lowest in five years By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Chinese restrictions on canola imports have shifted plans for canola acres this year, according to the annual Statistics Canada spring survey of estimated crop planting intentions. Canola plantings, fourth lowest in five years, will be reduced by 6.6 per cent to 21.3 million acres. In Saskatchewan, farmers cut canola by 700,000 acres. The 1.5 million acre cut in Canadian canola will be made up by a shift to wheat where the 25.67 million acres increases by 3.8 per cent – the largest since 2015. Not all wheat categories increase. Durum acreage drops by 18.8 per cent. Winter wheat plantings last fall were

down 2.8 per cent to 1.3 million acres. Spring wheat acres increased 12 per cent — 2.1 million acres. Saskatchewan farms will seed 13.3 million acres in wheat with a four million acre gain in spring wheat offset by durum reductions. Among cereal crops, barley acres are up 10.2 per cent with the largest acres in

five years at 7.15 million. Oats increases 7.9 per cent to 3.29 million acres, led by 12.4 per cent increase in this province. Fall rye is up 71 per cent to 345,000 acres. In pulses, lentil acres fall 9.6 per cent to 3.4 million acres, the lowest in five years as the trade dispute with India

drags on. Saskatchewan cut acreage by 250,000. Field pea acreage increases 11.6 per cent to 4.04 million while chickpea acres drop 24.5 per cent to 177,000. Dry beans fall 8.1 per cent to 325,000 acres. Soybean acreage drops 10.7 per cent to 5.64 million acres while flaxseed increases 16.7 per cent to one million acres. Mustard seed is reduced by 17.4 per cent to 416,000 acres with canary seed up 7.8 per cent to 229,000 acres. Sunflower acreages is static at 71,000. Summerfallow, continuing a multi-year decline, drops .6 per cent to 1.79 million acres. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Local teen kickstarts Co-op Cleanup project Larissa Kurz

On May 11, the Moose Jaw Co-op is inviting everyone to join together for a morning of community cleanup, the first time they have organized and sponsored their own event of this type. The event is the initiative of Connor Pippus, a grade 12 student at Peacock Collegiate and an employee of the Ross Park Co-op Gas Bar. Pippus proposed the idea to his manager, and the idea snowballed from there. “This was Connor’s kind of initiative and we’re really proud of him for that. . . We thought it was a great initiative, on behalf of our staff, and we really like to listen to our employees and this was something that was important to him,” said Michaela Turner, marketing and community relations manager for Moose Jaw Co-op. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Ross Park Gas Bar, on 9th Ave NE, where cleanup will begin and go from 9am until noon. Turner said the plan is to move southwards, cleaning up along 9th Ave and over to the Manitoba Expressway — picking up any and all garbage, recyclables, and litter along the way. “We are a member-owned Co-op, so taking care of the city of Moose Jaw and the community that we live in is very important to us,” said Turner. “We want

to be proud of our city and have it clean and looking great for not only the rest of the community, but visitors to our community as well.” This is the first time the Co-op has hosted their own cleanup event — in the past, they’ve been a sponsor for other events — and they’re hoping for a good enough turnout to make it an annual thing. “We just hope that we can get a lot of people out so that the more people we can get, the more around town we can get cleaned up,” said Turner. “Connor himself has a group of 30 friends and family members on his own. But we’re looking to get, say, at least another 50 people; we’d be happy with that to start out for our first year and then maybe it grows every year, kind of as word spreads.” Because Pippus is the one who began the whole idea, the proceeds from any recyclable material found during the cleanup will be donated to Peacock’s auditorium upgrade fund, after it has been matched by the Co-op. Turner is asking that those who plan on coming to RSVP to the event at, to get a better idea of the numbers that will be present that day. More information about the event is also on Facebook.

The Community Clean Up was Connor’s idea, and the Coop is bringing it to fruition on May 11. (supplied)


Talk in tax preparer’s office leads to exploring “simpler” tax return form The tax preparers called to let us know our tax forms had been prepared. The tax office was a busy place, so we had to wait a while until we received the news — bad and good. A friend came in, saw he had to wait and went back out to plug his parking meter. On reby Ron Walter turning, he noted the parking meter tax was $2 an hour! “I’m sure glad I don’t come downtown very often,” he said. Wonder if city council and administration think about that impact every time they jack up parking taxes? Then they wonder why commercial property assessment keeps falling. A grumpy looking taxpayer — a lot are grumpy at this time of year — suggested the taxes be simplified like President Donald Trump made them in the United States. That got Yours Truly thinking. There was talk about a simpler tax structure and forms soon after Trump was elected. But like so many things they were overshadowed

Saturday, May 18 at 7:30pm

by political theatrics. So just what did Trump do? The new U.S. federal tax form is the size of a postcard with the need to fill out both sides. The number of lines has been reduced to 23 from 79 for a simpler form. Sounds great. The new form takes a number of deductions, student loan interest and teaching supplies, from the smaller form and requires the tax preparer to figure them out on one of six worksheets. Unless the taxpayer has very straightforward income sources, he or she will still have to fill out numerous work sheets. Critics of the postcard sized tax form suggested the smaller size is irrelevant as 90 per cent of U.S. tax returns are filed online. The increased standard deduction simplifies filing for taxpayers. Trump promised to reduce the tax structure from seven different tax brackets to three like Canada has. His promise never made it into law even though he controlled both Houses of Congress. Rates range from 10 per cent to 37 per cent with a reduction for most people but larger rate cuts for the highest

incomes. Trump’s changes to inflation adjustments on taxes, according to tax experts, will increase bracket creep — the thing they are supposed to eliminate. In Canada, medical deductions start after expenses hit 3.5 per cent of income. Trump increased that limit to 10 per cent from 7.5. He increased the exemption for alternative minimum tax to $1 million income from $109,000, still indexed to inflation. H and R Block estimated the average family would save $1,200, which is a nice saving, but the income tax form and structure seem no simpler than before. And taxpayers still have to fill out state tax forms, whereas Canada has integrated the two into one set. That came about when the provinces urged the federal government to increase income tax and give them the increased take. Prime Minister John Diefenbaker agreed the provinces had a need, but he shifted the responsibility on the provinces by splitting the tax form into two, thus allowing the provinces to tax whatever they want and get the feedback from increased tax rates.

Briercrest bringing Sound of Music back to Caronport Larissa Kurz

The Sound of Music is returning to Caronport’s stage this year by popular demand, as one of the two Summer Stage productions by Briercrest Onstage. The group performed the famous musical in 2014, and have chosen to bring it to the stage once again this year by request. The cast — made up of Briercrest students, community members, and local children — has been hard at work over the last few weeks. “The auditions were open auditions to anybody who could audition, and we had a lot of people audition for the different roles, especially a lot of the children for the Sound of Music,” said Ruth-Ellen Wallace, performing arts administrative assistant. The show is a collaboration between the community and the performing arts students at the college and will be a chance for the students to perform onstage and build their theatrical experience. “It’s just a huge experience for them as they get experience and knowledge,” said Wallace. “They just add additional knowledge to their confidence levels. . . [and] they’re just really loving the experience of being able to bless the community and the provinces that come to see

(supplied) the shows.” The show is a classic, and Wallace noted that tickets are already selling very well. Artistic Director Ron de Jager hopes to see a good crowd for the show, as the familiarity of the musical makes it accessible to the whole family. The show will be performed at The Landing, Caronport’s historic theatre that was built around the time of the Second World War — an interesting juxtaposition with the

setting of the Sound of Music, lending a tenuous connection between cast and character. Taking the lead role in the show is Crystal Gray as Maria, and de Jager as the Captain, and Melissa Wood as Mother Abbess. The show will debut on May 10, with additional performances on May 11, 17, 18 and on June 7 and 8. These dates provide a chance to see the shows as both an evening performance and a matinee. The final show on June 8 will be a dinner theatre show, with the cafeteria on Briercrest’s campus open to provide theater-goers an option for a meal before the performance begins. “We just wanted to have more of a wholesome meal available for people who were coming from out of town, to have dinner either after the afternoon show or before the evening performance,” said Wallace. Tickets for the show are $17 for adults, $14 for students and seniors, and $6 for children under five, and can be purchased by contacting Briercrest Onstage at (306) 7563250.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers debuting at Briercrest Larissa Kurz

As the second show of Briercrest’s Summer Stage productions, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a wild comedy about a collection of brothers muddling up their chances at romance in a number of ways, much to the leading woman’s exasperation. Briercrest Onstage is performing the musical for the first time, and the cast is excited to perform the new show. “I think it’s just a real fun story. There’s great dancing and lots of comedy in it as well, so it’s a lighter show,” said Ron de Jager, artistic director of both shows. “And this is a story about a guy, especially the lead guy, who really had his mind set, and it really changes by the end of the story.” The musical is known for it’s numerous, rousing dance numbers, for which Briercrest has enlisted a professional choreographer from Moose Jaw to work with them to reach the potential of the show. “It’s going to be quite a high-quality production,” promised Ruth-Ellen Wallace, performing arts administrative assistant. Briercrest Onstage does musicals each year, as so many students at the college are studying in that particular area. “Most of them are students within our music department

(supplied) who are being professionally trained as singers, and they take musical theater classes as well to do dancing and acting,” said Wallace. “So we always choose musicals to do rather than straight dramas, so we can tap on that talent.” “The reason we started this was to make an opportunity for our students to perform here at the college and it’s just steadily grown over the last seven years,” said de Jager. The leads for this show are Brett Mitchell and Sheridan Clifford, and Daniel McElroy and Nancy Moffitt, double

cast as Adam and Milly — the first husband and wife pair of the seven brothers. The cast is primarily made up of students, who are all excited to perform each year for audiences that come from as far away as Alberta and Manitoba. “We’re just actually pretty excited where it’s going, and for the support from the community and also from Saskatchewan, period, because there’s been a lot of interest,” said de Jager. The show will debut on May 24, and continue on May 25, 31, and June 1 — the last date featuring a dinner theatre aspect for the first time ever. The Briercrest cafeteria will be open to provide the audience with a meal prior to the performance. “We just wanted to have more of a wholesome meal available for people who were coming from out of town, to have dinner either after the afternoon show or before the evening performance,” said Wallace. Tickets for the show are $17 for adults, $14 for students and seniors, and $6 for children under five, and can be purchased by contacting Briercrest Onstage at (306) 7563250.

Don’t feel guilty about snacking when the snack is popcorn by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor We have 2 dogs living amongst us in our home. Room and board for nothing more that unending loyalty and affection. We have done well not to involve them in our own meal time, so they don’t hover around waiting for the occasional food scrap to fall on the floor. I don’t stare at them when they are eating their dog food, so I don’t want them staring at me while I am eating my people food.

There is however, one time in which they do tend to hover, and that is popcorn time (popcorn tends to fall on the floor). We like to snack in our house and most of us like snack time to be crunch time. The occasional bag of chips does happen in our home, but popcorn seems to be the reigning champion of snacks for us. Our dogs can hear the popping of kernel a mile away. We tend to associate snacking with the eating of “empty calories.” The negative connotation that comes with snacking I think comes from the fact that a snack often involves unhealthy items. Chips, cookies, candies…all relatively unhealthy. It has been determined that snacking can make up a large part of our nutritional profile, so it is essential that good choices for snacking are made. Popcorn. Believe it or not, much research has been done on this common choice of snack. Thermodynamic properties at vapour point, characteristics of the sound of the “pop” and even height of the jump at the time of pop have been analyzed. Aside from these factoids, valuable only to the Trivial Pursuit enthusiasts, much research

has been collected looking into the nutritional value of popcorn as well, and for the most part, the findings are positive. Studies show that popcorn may be high in polyphenols, naturally occurring chemicals found in many plants that have numerous health benefits. These polyphenols, also known as phytochemicals, have antioxidant properties that help to protect the cells of our body from damage. Polyphenols have been known to offer protection from Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease, inflammation and even obesity. Popcorn is also high in fibre, improving gut bacteria, promoting healthy digestion. The big mistake most make with popcorn is covering something potentially healthy with unhealthy toppings. My youngest son has been known to put so much vinegar flavouring that his lips get blistered. Salt, margarine and other flavourings may erase the health benefits of popcorn so be sure to add healthy toppings or even go “au naturel.”

Report from the Legislature

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse From fighting the federal carbon tax and fixing CanLyle Stewart ada’s flawed MLA, Equalization Lumsden-Morse program to protecting jobs and ensuring programs and services are sustainable for years to come, your Saskatchewan Party government is standing up for Saskatchewan. This week we sent a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, reiterating our concerns regarding the escalating trade restrictions China has placed on Canadian canola. Saskatchewan has proposed changes to the federally-administered Advance Payments Program to limit the effects of drastic changes in seeding intentions and to cushion producers from a need to sell into an artificially depressed market. While the federal government seemed prepared to act quickly on this proposal, we

are no further along today than we were nearly a month ago when it was first proposed. This lack of action from the federal government is concerning when canola producers are facing unprecedented uncertainty ahead of spring seeding. We are repeating our request that changes be made immediately to mitigate the risk to our canola producers in Saskatchewan while the federal government seeks to resolve its issues with China. We have also expressed a willingness to participate in a mission to China to resolve this issue through scientific or diplomatic means. In fact, we have offered any and all assistance to the federal government to resolve this matter. Large fires and extremely dry conditions continue to be a concern across the province. In these conditions, cigarette butts, hot ATV exhaust, and even bonfires can easily trigger grassfires that quickly burn out of control. Thank you to all Saskatchewan firefight-

ers and emergency personnel for their response so far. Please pay attention and follow any fire bans issued by your municipality, as they are put in place for everyone’s protection. Our province is grateful for the volunteer and professional firefighters and first responders who keep our people, property and communities safe. Recently, we announced that Saskatchewan’s 6,500 volunteer firefighters will soon have easier access to Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) benefits. Volunteer firefighters will have access to the same presumptive coverage as professional firefighters. Expanded presumptive coverage was first introduced for professional firefighters through an amendment to the legislation introduced this past December, which includes six additional cancers – prostate, skin, breast, cervical and ovarian cancer as well as multiple myeloma. Our government recently announced the expansion of the Rural Crime Advisory Network. Initially launched in southern Saskatchewan earlier this year, the program is a partnership with the RCMP that allows detachment commanders to send text messages, emails or phone calls to residents with information about criminal

activity in their area. Since the program was rolled out, people across the province have expressed interest and we’re now proud to announce its expansion to include central and northern Saskatchewan. This allows the RCMP to get information to the residents directly and encourages them to contact police when they see similar, suspicious activity. People are the eyes and ears of a community and every new person who signs up for this program boosts the reach of the network, allowing the RCMP to more effectively communicate with rural residents about crime in their area. You can sign up today at saskcrimewatch. ca. Investments into Crime Reduction Teams, Protection and Response Teams, and Community Safety Officers have all helped in addressing rural crime. Part of these efforts include making sure that police and communities are able to communicate and work with each other. The expansion of the Rural Crime Advisory Network is all about connecting people and it is part of our government’s commitment to make sure our communities are safer so that Saskatchewan remains the best place in Canada to live, work and raise a family.

People’s Party of Canada receives approval to run candidate here in 2019 federal election Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The People’s Party of Canada has officially got the go-ahead to run a candidate in Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan constituency in the 2019 federal election, after Elections Canada recognized the party as an official electoral district association. Elections Canada formally recognized the Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan — People’s Party of Canada (MJLCL — PPC) Association on March 22, ending a fivemonth wait for approval, explained Lloyd Hackel, CEO/president of the MJLCL electoral district association. Since the PPC is new, Elections Canada forced them to meet certain requirements before it was recognized as an official federal party. Once those requirements were met, it was up to the party to establish electoral district associations across the country. The party has established 14 associations in Saskatchewan. One requirement was to establish a membership organization in the constituency, Hackel said. That took a while since the Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan constituency is 32,000 square kilometres in size. A second requirement was the establish-

ment of an executive board. Board volunteers had to then get a police background check. All those details were sent to the PPC headquarters and then to Elections Canada. “It becomes a waiting game until the executive gets approval,” said Hackel, who grew up in Moose Jaw. He moved away in 1969 to join the military, and then returned in 2007 to become a businessman. He has ran for city council a couple of times. “I think people are going to be surprised at what they hear from the People’s Party of Canada,” he said. “It is certainly focused on the people, not on big corporations, lobbyists or special interest groups. “Our goal is to leave money in your pocket instead of picking it clean.” Party leader Maxime Bernier’s principles of freedom, fairness, responsibility and respect represent many Canadian’s beliefs, Hackel said. He feels Bernier is genuine and thinks his message about doing politics differently resonates with Canadians. “I was tired of seeing the same old, same old,” explained Hackel about why he

ken think the PPC will split the vote with the Conservatives. However, he doesn’t think that will happen. Instead, he believes voters are looking for something new that shows them respect and treats them fairly. Hackel is concerned that the federal government pulls in billions of dollars from Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Canadians, only to use that money to fund Party of Canada, explains his platform projects overseas. He pointed out Canada to supporters at the Robusta Cafe and builds roads in other countries but lets inLounge in Guelph, Ont. Photo by Troy frastructure here crumble. Furthermore, Bridgeman for the federal government supports the needs joined the PPC. While the Liberals and of others overseas, but can’t provide clean Conservatives have different policies, he water for Aboriginal People. was impressed with how bold Bernier is Hackel thinks farmers in Saskatchewan in changing the discussion about federal have also suffered recently since the federal government is not interested in helppolitics. “We all like to joke to some degree that ing them.

Colorado company livestock waste treatment can save billions on clean-up Down in Denver, Colorado, a company treating livestock wastes plans to cash in on the environmental concerns created by livestock poo. The poop and liquid wastes from livestock in the United States have been calculated at 100 times the volume of wastes from humans in that country. The country has eight million dairy cows, 80 million beef cattle, 62 million hogs and hundreds of million of poultry – lots of poop there. The nutrients from livestock operations, particularly from intensive population feedlots, dairy farms, hog farms and poultry production, tend to find their way into run-off, polluting streams, lakes and other water bodies. The nitrogen and phosphorous wastes spur algae bloom, even creating dead spots in lakes where lack of oxygen prevents organisms from living. Most of the human waste has been treated to remove the harmful wastes although some municipalities still discharge partially treated or untreated waste into water bodies. The clean water industry in the United States has grown into a $100 billion annual industry, with much of the money being spent to clean water bodies already polluted by livestock wastes.

Bion Environmental Technologies has developed three generations of a treatment process to eliminate the livestock wastes from so-called factory farms and feeding operations where wastes from large herds are left to run off on the surface. Using a combination of biological, mechanical and thermal processes Bion transforms the wastes into energy, organic fertilizer, animal feed and water recycled for livestock use. The treatment removes 95 per cent of nitrogen, cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 90 per cent and eliminates ammonia pollutants. The company claims the process is cost-effective especially when compared with billions spent every year on clean up of water bodies. The Chesapeake Bay clean-up on the East Coast has a $900 million annual bill. Lancaster Pennsylvania Krieder Farms dairy farm has had a licensed Bion treatment process since 2013. The stumbling blocks for Bion appear to be getting an agency or industry to pay for installation of the treatment facilities. Permits are still being processed for approval of the organic fertilizer on cultivated land. Along the path to develop and approve the process, Bion has lost $123 million, burning through $2 million

last year. The company has no revenues; its projects all in pilot program stage. Debt includes an $8.1 million debenture and a $9.1 million low interest loan. Commercialization of the Bion process awaits further implementation of United States Department of Agriculture policies on livestock wastes and individual state policies. Waiting for government action can be frustrating at any time, more so in the current U.S. climate where low priority is placed on protection of the environment. At a recent price of 77 cents US a share, Bion is valued at $22 million. The low share price makes raising much cash for development by sale of new shares difficult. Being listed on the less regulated over-the-counter market means many investors and most analysts won’t even consider these shares. While it is an interesting story with huge potential Bion stock is a gamble with odds worse than a slot machine. Ron Walter can be reached at

Appreciation Day honors hard-working educators Larissa Kurz

May 8 has been announced as Early Childhood Education Appreciation Day, to pair with May being Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Month, staff at the Southwest Daycare & Early Learning Centre are glad for the nod to their hard work. Assistant director Natasha Dafoe always appreciates being acknowledged, as the work she does with the kids at the centre is important to both them and herself. Southwest Daycare has programs running for kids at all ages, from 18 months to 12 years old; they run a music program on Tuesdays and work all kind of social programming into their daily routine at the centre. Programming like that is very pertinent to children’s growth, said Dafoe. “It keeps them interested and then they have different things to look forward to. So it’s definitely important for their growth, for sure,” said Dafoe.

A few members of the Southwest Daycare & Learning Centre’s staff (L-R): Sandy Buhler, Asiah Johnson, Victoria Pinfold, Alicia Hill, Tamara Morgan, Natasha Dafoe, and Anne-Marie Prangnell. Dafoe got into this field because she wanted to work with children, and she truly enjoys her job and the work she does at the centre. “I love children and I always have. I have children myself and I’ve always loved

to be with them,” she said. “It would be weird to not have children in my life everyday. It’s very rewarding.” The board is taking the staff out to supper to celebrate their hard work, and Dafoe is grateful to be part of the team at South-

west Daycare. “We have some really great educators in our center. They love working with the kids and they feel like it’s very rewarding, we all do. We like just being able to be with them every day and teach them and see them grow and learn,” said Dafoe. “[The staff here,] we’re a team; I think we all have our little different roles and just, every single day, [the kids] are teaching us, we’re teaching them.” And while Dafoe is always glad to be recognized and see the government providing funding children’s development programs, she hopes to see even more recognition in the future. “We definitely appreciate when they do recognize and give us more funding. However, we could always use more, because in the early years [group] and stuff like that, you don’t always get enough recognition,” said Dafoe.

Change to big game draw in effect this year Larissa Kurz

Saskatchewan’s big game draw is open for applications beginning May 1 until May 25, and hunters are encouraged to submit their applications early to avoid complications. The draw pool system was amended in 2018, expanding from four to six priority pools — Legacy pool, Super A pool, A pool, B pool, C pool, and D pool, listed in order of priority. This year, the D pool will contain first-time applicants and applicants drawn in 2018, in order to reduce applicants in the Super A pool each year. The Legacy and Super A pool continue to house applicants who have applied and not been drawn for several consecutive years. A Hunter, Angler and Trapper License (HAL) system account is required to apply for any draws and is also where hunters are asked to

submit their applications alongside their $6 fee. Successfully drawn hunters can purchase their tags beginning Aug. 1. The process of application has not changed and results for elk, moose, and mule deer will be made available in mid-June through the HAL system; results for the pronghorn draw will be available in mid-July. Hunters are responsible for checking for their results; there isn’t a notification system currently in place. More information about the draws and the applications can be found on the government website, or by calling 1 (888) 773-8450 for assistance with an application. Information about hunting in Saskatchewan can found by calling 1 (800) 567-4424.

DFFH sees impressive surplus after tumultuous year

Mosaic Place and YaraCentre carrying $503,651 surplus, up nearly $300,000 from last year Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

It was a tumultuous year for the Downtown Facility and Field House Inc. (DFFH). That acronym was on the lips of many Moose Jaw residents through 2018 – the dismissal of the general manager, accusations of sexual harassment against an employee and a board of directors scandal that saw the entire DFFH board dissolved and sanctions against three city councillors for their related actions. But through it all, the financial situation for Mosaic Place and YaraCentre remains solid, as was revealed at the DFFH annual general meeting on Thursday night. According to the statement of financial position, the organization currently holds an accumulated surplus of $503,651, an increase of $294,134 over 2017 – even if it did come with a price. “Financially we did really well, a lot of it had to do with the events of last year,” said city manager Jim Puffalt, who took over management of the two facilities when the board was removed. “Through dismissals and attrition we reduced the amount of management here and that’s reflected obviously in the financials. “But other than that we had just as much activity as usual. There were only three concert-type events, but everything else, the conference centres are always being used, the ice is always being used, the curling rink is always busy. We continue to put out a great product and provide great customer service to the people who come to this facility.” Almost every aspect of revenues for the DFFH saw increases from 2017 to 2018 to a total of $3,332,490 com-

Mosaic Place

pared to expenditures of $3,038,356, which included reductions in administration salaries, operational salaries and contracted staff. The end result was $294,134 in excess of revenues over expenditures, which combined with $209,517 from last year, sees the current total surplus.

“Sometimes you have to go through fire to get through to the other side and get ahead,” Puffalt said. “We have to thank our staff so much, they all picked up and took on extra tasks and did so much… it’s was tough times, but we persevered, put our heads down and worked and got things done. So we can’t say enough about our staff because without them we can’t hold events, we can’t keep this facility running. “We have to give them all credit for sticking through the tough times and doing such a great job.” The plan now is to focus on the future and what’s coming up, beginning with the number of major events Mosaic Place plans to host in the near future. “We have two or three (shows) we have yet to announce yet that will be happening in the fall and one booked into next March,” Puffalt said. “They’ll be fairly big shows, and I think bigger concerts are what the community is looking for to happen in the city, it’s a great economic benefit for everybody. It gives our residents entertainment and things they can go and do. It’s just a tremendous boon for our city to have all this for our citizens to do.” Of course, Puffalt couldn’t resist plugging the next big event happening at Mosaic Place – the George Canyon concert taking place Friday, May 10. “On Friday is the first kick at the cat with George Canyon, there will be around 1,500 people in Mosaic Place and if you haven’t got your tickets yet, get them because it’s going to be a blast!”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Mother’s Day gift — free yard waste at the dump The stores will be busy this weekend as family members look for the perfect gift for their mothers, grandmothers, aunts and other important women in their lives. Mother’s Day is an economic advantage for retailers who stock and promote items that many mothers didn’t know they wanted until their loved ones presented them with those oh-so-perfect gifts. Traditional gifts that have stood the test of time are those plaster of paris handprints that are presented with love Joyce Walter by kindergarten and Grade 1-2 children, accompanied of For Moose Jaw Express course by hand-made cards that are preserved for years in places of safety. Tradition also provides a bounty of chocolates, flowers, jewelry, telephone calls from afar, breakfast in bed, coupon books offering an assortment of chores to be tackled by family members, a spa day, a dinner out, or just some quiet time alone. A quick check on this year’s list of gifts for Mom are an assortment of digital devices from phones and cameras to robotic vacuum cleaners to upgraded hearing aids and photo frames. There’s something called a gummy bear cleanse but that sounded painful and not nearly as practical as a pressure cooker, car wash gift card, candles or casserole dishes. While shoppers still lucky enough to have a mother to buy for on this May 12, 2019 day of celebration will check their credit card balances to make sure that nice set of earrings falls within the budget, the City of Moose Jaw has already taken action to ensure that some ladies of local households will receive the best gift of any Moth-

er’s Day in their celebratory memory. Tell me — what Mother wouldn’t want a free day at the Moose Jaw landfill site? I can’t imagine any women of any age, not being excited by the prospect of having a cheap date at the dump, participating in the “yard waste weekend” with other Moms and their families. This two-day event (May 11, and Mother’s Day, May 12) has been designated by the city as the only weekend until fall when city residents are able to gain no-charge entry to the landfill to drop off bags of leaves, grass clippings and regimented-sized tree branches. There will be another opportunity in the fall for these free dumps at the landfill but any such fall date will never hope to match the impact of dumping on Mother’s Day. Mothers who worry that family members might be spending too much money won’t have to worry about the cost of the yard waste weekend. The normal $10 tipping fee has been waived for this occasion, providing the driver with an opportunity to use that $10 to buy Mom a Muffin and egg breakfast, or a greeting card that expresses sentiments of love and affection. There is indeed a silver lining in the yard waste weekend: Moms won’t be subjected to any old piece of the dump. No, there will be a “yard waste zone” where staff members will check the bags to make sure that non-organic waste items are not being smuggled in against the rules. And another bonus: return trips are more than welcome — and still free. Mother’s Day weekend just keeps getting better and better. Joyce Walter can be reached at

412 Lillooet Street West 306-694-1001

SEIU-West celebrates National Nursing Week It’s an honour to take a moment to show our appreciation for the thousands of front line members of the health care nursing team. While a whole team of professionals contribute to our health and well-being, during this week we recognize the nursing team. It’s because of the incredible skill and professionalism of these members of the health care team that our loved ones recover from illness or injury; or simply find ease. However, it is also due to the compassion and knowledge of the nursing team members, that we are able to navigate the complexities of health care, or community-based organizations. This is especially impressive in light of the overwhelming odds faced with short-staffing and crushing workloads; the result is higher rates of injury and illness that impact the ability to provide safe, skilled, quality care for you and your loved ones. We encourage you to show your appreciation for their work through an act of kindness or a simple ‘thank you’. Whether it’s a Continuing Care As-

sistant; a Licensed Practical Nurse; a Personal Support Worker; or a Direct Care Worker…in our communities, hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, or retirement homes, these valuable members of our team contribute to our health and well-being. They are our everyday heroes. SEIU-West annually requests the provincial government to designate CCA day (May 12) and LPN day (on May 13). The SEIU-West Nursing Care committee contributes to the celebration of National Nursing week by providing resources to workplaces across the province – praise for the efforts of nursing teams can take many forms, treats at a coffee break, winning prizes or merchandise. SEIU-West applauds every member of the nursing team for their support and collaboration – we are stronger together, and safer together! Please join us in showing your support and appreciation for all members of the nursing team during National Nursing Week May 6-12.

May 6 to 12, 2019 is National

Nursing Week

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs)

Continuing Care Assistants (CCAs)

CCAs and LPNs are essential pieces of your nursing team. Safe, quality care means we need safe staffing levels.

Join us in telling the government to stop dismantling public health care.

Provincial Court

Motorist receives hefty fine, probation for dangerous driving Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

It was mid-March when Tyler Hawken got behind the wheel of his truck while impaired and drove dangerously down a back alley before he crashed into a snowbank. Someone noticed the incident and called 911. Police showed up and arrested Hawken for impaired driving, being at or over the legal blood alcohol limit of 0.08, and dangerous driving. Appearing in Moose Jaw provincial court on April 29, Hawken, 22, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and received a fine of $2,500 and 12 months of probation. As part of a joint submission, he will have to report to a probation officer, take an addictions assessment, take any counselling or treatment as is deemed necessary, and not operate any motorized conveyance for the first six months unless for work or driving to and from work. The Crown withdrew the other two charges.

Resident pleads guilty to stealing friend’s truck to get to court appointment Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Desperate to get to a court appointment in Saskatoon, Collin Edward Foster took his friend’s rental truck without his consent but left behind a note explaining his situation. The friend, however, called police to report that his vehicle had been stolen. Police in Saskatoon caught up with Foster and arrested him, while they also recovered the truck. In Moose Jaw provincial court on April 29, Foster, 43, pleaded guilty to taking a vehicle without consent and — as part of a joint submission — received a fine of $400 with six months to pay. The Crown stayed a second charge against him.

Motorist loses licence after hitting another vehicle while impaired Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

After a night of drinking at The Crushed Can nightclub, Ajay Chawla thought he was sober enough to move his vehicle around the parking lot and possibly drive home. However, he backed into another vehi-

cle and caused minor damage to his car. Another patron saw the incident and called police, who arrested Chawla and charged him with impaired driving and having a blood alcohol content (BAC) level at or above the legal limit of 0.08.

In Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Chawla, 46, pleaded guilty to having a BAC level at or above the legal limit. He received a fine of $1,000 and was given a one-year driving prohibition. He will also have to go through Saskatchewan

Government Insurance (SGI) to get his licence back and take any courses SGI deems mandatory. The Crown stayed the charge of impaired driving.

Resident given year’s probation for assaulting partner while on drugs Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Dallon Dean Marshall was high on drugs when he assaulted his common-law partner and then began damaging the home they shared together. He had already punched holes in the walls and flipped over the kitchen table when police arrived and arrested him for assault. In Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Dallon, 33, pleaded guilty to assault and received a suspended sentence, which means instead of serving a jail sentence, he


will serve 12 months of probation. Dallon, from Moose Jaw, must also make a charitable contribution of $500 within two months, report to a probation officer, take counselling, take addictions assessments and treatment, have no contact with his partner if under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and not be within 50 metres of her workplace if impaired.

City Hall Council Notes More than $1 million in pledges to DFFH written off since 2015 Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

City hall has written off more than $1 million in pledges to the Downtown Facility and Field House (DFFH) project, as auditors have said collecting that much from community groups is impossible. As of Dec. 31, 2018, the municipality had received $8,569,644.10 for the DFFH project, leaving $1,530,355.90 outstanding, according to a report presented during city council’s April 22 regular meeting. The report was produced in response to an inquiry from Coun. Brian Swan-

son during the Feb. 25 meeting. At that time, he asked how much had been collected for the DFFH project; what provisions had been made for uncollectable donations; how much remained to be collected and when that would happen; what the status is of Moose Jaw Soccer’s pledge given its original promise; and how much has been collected from that organization. With uncollected donations, auditor Deloitte LLP deemed that only the money pledged by the Moose Jaw Warriors was collectible, the report

said. The remainder of the pledges was written off in 2015 for a total write-off of $1,079,405.90. Since then, $149,050 has been collected. The municipality had yet to receive $600,000 from the Warriors, although that amount is expected to be received in full. The report noted all other amounts are doubtful and only a small portion would be received. Moose Jaw Soccer’s original pledge to the project was $30,000 every year for 25 years for a total of $750,000. The director of parks and recreation

contacted the organization and was informed it would submit an updated pledge amount soon. The new pledge amount is expected to be smaller than the annual original pledge. So far, the municipality has received five years’ worth of pledges from Moose Jaw Soccer for $150,000. Three years ago the organization gave $7,550 and two years ago it gave $6,500, while nothing was given last year. The total given has been $164,050. The next council meeting is Monday, May 13.

No timeline set to accept credit or debit cards at the landfill, says city administration Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The City of Moose Jaw will continue to take cash at the landfill and could accept credit or debit cards in the future, according to city administration. The idea of alternative payments to cash at the landfill arose after Coun. Scott McMann inquired during the Feb. 25 city council meeting about a timeline or plan to offer more ways to pay at the dump. Administration responded to his inquiry during the April 22 regular meeting by producing a report. “We don’t have a plan to expand our payment options. That is really inconvenient to the public at large,” he said. “My original inquiry asked for timeline and there is nothing here. We have no definite plans.” The problem at the landfill is with connectivity of the internet and Wi-Fi, explained city manager Jim Puffalt. There are ways to get around that, such as installing a booster to increase the signal strength. NOTICE OF INTENTION TO AMEND ZONING BYLAW NO. 5346 AND OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN NO. 5345 The Council of the City of Moose Jaw intends to consider bylaws pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to amend the City of Moose Jaw’s Zoning Bylaw No. 5346, and the Official Community Plan No. 5345. The purpose of the amendments is to accommodate the redevelopment of the former Union Hospital site for mixed residential and commercial use. The amendments will also align the zoning of selected surrounding properties with their current residential use. The amendment proposes to change the zoning of the former Union Hospital property, civic address 455 Fairford Street East, from CS – Community Service District to R4 – Core Mixed Residential District. Part of the 500 Block of Fairford Street East is also proposed to change from CS – Community Service District to R2 – Medium Density Residential District. This will affect the following civic addresses on Fairford Street East: 537, 545, 553, 561, 569, 577. In order to change the zoning of the subject area, an amendment must be made to the City of Moose Jaw Official Community Plan (OCP). The Future Land Use map that accompanies this Plan identifies the area for long-term Community Service use which is proposed to change to long-term Residential use. The Zoning Bylaw amendment and the OCP amendment are proposed to be completed at the same time. A map and copy of the proposed Bylaws may be inspected by any interested person at Planning and Development Services, 3rd Floor City Hall, 228 Main Street North, or may be found under the “announcements” section at, from Tuesday May 7th, 2019 to Monday, May 27th, 2019 from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Written submissions must be received by Planning and Development Services, 228 Main Street North, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 3J8, by 10:00 AM on Monday, May 27th, 2019 in person or by email at Questions may be directed to the Department of Planning and Development Services by email or by phone at 694-4443. The proposed Bylaw and any submissions regarding the proposed Bylaw will be considered at the regular meeting of City Council to be held in Council Chambers, City Hall, at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, May 27th, 2019. DATED at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan this 1st day of May, 2019. Myron Gulka-Tiechko - City Clerk

According to the report from the department of financial services: • The parks and recreation department accepts payments at the Kinsmen Sportsplex, YaraCentre, Natatorium and city hall. As of June 1, the sportsplex, YaraCentre and Natatorium will accept all forms of payment including debit, credit, cheques, EFT and cash. • Payments made to the parks department at city hall will continue to be cheque or cash only. The department is also working towards online payments with the hopes of rolling it out over the calendar year. • The engineering services department plans to increase the payment options at the landfill to include debit, credit and cash. There are several challenges to this implementation including a lack of internet connectivity, potential need to upgrade landfill scale software and some upgrading of the municipality’s cash receipting software. • The financial services department is planning to expand payment options at the main floor cashier area to include credit card payments for some of the smaller payments taken at the cashiers. The acceptance of credit card payments for taxation and water payments will continue to be directed through the municipality’s website and payment partner Plastiq, which allows for recovery of the credit card fee. The demand for an expansion of payment options is

growing rapidly and the financial services department intends to create and administrative policy to guide and provide consistency in future expansion, the report said. The focus at this time is the expansion of payment options in the parks and recreation department related to their implementation of new booking software. Once that has been accomplished, areas such as the landfill and city hall cashiers will be implemented. The next regular council meeting is May 13. TOWN OF PENSE TAX TITLE PROPERTY FOR SALE

City Hall Council Notes Contractor receives extension to finish home under incentive program Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Atwork Construction Inc. will be allowed to finish its housing project under the municipality’s Replacement Housing Incentive Program, even though the incentive permit expired in late February. Company owner Gordon Murdock appeared before city council’s executive committee on April 22 to ask for an extension on the permit. The business is building a home at 1161 Third Avenue Northeast. After a brief discussion, council approved a recommendation to extend the permit to Friday, May 31 so the construction company could finish building the home. The recommendation must be approved during the May 13 regular meeting to become official. The Replacement Housing Incentive Program (RHIP) is intended to stimulate construction of new housing in older areas of Moose Jaw. Once the municipality’s building official confirms that the dwelling is substantially complete, approved applicants will received a five-year, 100-per-cent tax exemption beginning on Jan. 1 of the following year of completion. The loss in revenue the municipality would experience from this property over five years would be $4,244.70. Presentation The company received its building permit and approval under RHIP on Feb. 13, 2018, Murdock explained. He had every intention to start digging the basement then, but discovered the frost line was 10 to 12 feet deep. The company was then unable to start excavation until that spring. “Even if I dug the hole, I would not have been able to

Atwork Construction is nearly finished this house at 1161 Third Avenue, but had to ask for an extension from city council to continue to receive the Replacement Housing Incentive Program benefit. Photo by Jason G. Antonio continue,” he said. “We did encounter some frost (in June), but not enough to get in the way. It was my fault — an oversight on my part — to not talk to city engineering and change the start date on my permit.” This was the company’s first home build. Excavation had reached seven feet in depth before Murdock realized this past March that his company wouldn’t be able to complete the project by deadline. Murdock added he expects to have the occupancy permit by May 15. Council discussion Murdock would have to reapply and pay an administra-

tive fee if he wanted his start date extended, Michelle Sanson, director of planning and development services, told city council. Furthermore, city hall doesn’t have the authority to grant an extension to his building permit since it expired on Feb. 20, 2019. In the last few years, four reports covering five properties have come to executive committee for extensions to construction deadlines, Sanson added. All except one was denied, since the others met the deadline requirements. The one exception occurred because of a medical issue with the contractor. “I struggled with this one. My gut instinct is I support this,” said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. “I think I respect administration’s recommendation, but one way I look at this is it is an incentive program … . “I really appreciative that (Murdock is) honest and took responsibility. I believe that is very important in a community when you say you own this. I respect that and respect you for standing up there.” Situations such as this put council in an awkward position, said Coun. Heather Eby. Yet, she also appreciated that Murdock didn’t deflect blame for the project’s problems. This request came to executive committee since it deals with such cases individually, she added. While it does set a precedent, since the extension is until May 31, and with the promise of an occupancy permit before that, she supported the request. The next executive committee meeting is May 13.

Groups hanging banners on streetlights must now follow city policy Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express the streetlight banners at any time and for any reason, Blais told council. There will be 72 available streetlight locations and one cross-street banner location available with the program. Most of the designated streetlight standards are on Main Street, with some near High Street, Manitoba Street West and Langdon Crescent near Crescent Park. A fee for installation and removal of the banners would recover all costs associat-

Banners like this could line the main streets of Moose Jaw, as long as groups follow a new municipal policy. Photo courtesy Rick Lund/Perry Sound. Community organizations that want to hang banners on one or more of the municipality’s 72 designated streetlight standards to promote festivals or other events will now have to follow specific guidelines. City council unanimously approved a new streetlight banner policy during its most recent executive committee meeting. The recommendation must be approved during the May 13 regular council meeting to become official. “We didn’t reinvent the wheel on this one. We gathered data from other municipalities,” Derek Blais, director of parks and recreation, explained during the meeting. The City of Moose Jaw supports the use of banners on streetlights to promote festivals; cultural, historical, arts or sporting events; fundraising efforts; or other educational or celebratory events, he said. This program would enhance community aesthetics and promote partnerships that support the activities and events held within the city. However, Blais pointed out it is important to have guidelines in place to protect the municipality from possible damage; ensure the safety and security of residents and visitors; ensure that the visual

appearance and environment within the municipality is considered; and that the municipality overall brand and message are supported. To be eligible for the program, applicants must meet at least one of three criteria: • Be affiliated with a non-profit organization • Represent a “special event” wherein the intention is to attract visitors to the city • Represent an event that is considered to be sponsored by the municipality The use of banners is prohibited when the promotional campaign refers to: • The promotion of commercial, religious, or political organizations and related products and services • The promotion of alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, products or gambling • The promotion of views or ideas that are likely to promote hatred or support violence or discrimination against anyone City hall later clarified that if a religious organization was promoting a public festival or major public gathering, those events would fit within the policy. However, a non-profit group such as Girl Guides would not be able to use banners to sell its cookies. The municipality has the right to remove

ed with using city manpower and equipment. “I love this, the thought of this,” said Coun. Chris Warren. “This is another example of where we’re trying to promote partnerships and collaborations with the community. As report says, we’re beautifying the aesthetics of the downtown.” The next executive committee meeting is May 13.

City Hall Council Notes

Changes coming to Moose Jaw’s free landfill tipping program Due to some misinformation in the previously published article in last week’s edition, this is a rerun of the article with corrections.

Changes are coming to Moose Jaw’s free landfill tipping program, as residents will have fewer days to dump their organic waste but will be allowed to use trailers to offload that refuse. The program still waives the $10 fee for residents to haul organic yard waste — leaves, grass clippings and pruned branches no bigger than one inch in diameter — to the dump. However, changes mean residents can use trailers to drop off the waste in addition to their vehicles. Commercial trailers and dual axle trailers would be excluded. Furthermore, the program will designate one Saturday and Sunday of free landfill tipping in the spring and a similar weekend in the fall. The previous program featured two weeks of free landfill tipping in the spring and the fall, with residents able to bring their yard waste using only half-ton trucks or small vehicles. During city council’s April 22 regular meeting, council voted 6-1 to adopt the new landfill tipping program practices, while it also voted 6-1 to discontinue the previous practices. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed to the first motion. Mayor Fraser Tolmie was opposed to the second motion. City hall will announce when the dates are for the free

By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter landfill tipping program in the spring. Background information Under the previous program, residents brought items that were not considered household waste, such as appliances, furniture, construction material, fencing and concrete. These materials are classified as restricted waste and increased operational demands to handle, according to a report from the department of engineering services. Furthermore, customers verbally abused landfill employees and dumped their material illegally. Vehicles with trailers were also weighed in, but did not return to be re-weighed and left without paying. During the four weeks when the municipality waived the $10 tipping fee, customers dumped 2,500 tonnes of waste at the landfill. Meanwhile, the number of vehicles has increased year over year, with 9,464 customers using the service in 2018. Council discussion “The number 1 commodity there is air space. The more free debris we take, the less air space we have. Then we have to expand the landfill,” said Coun. Chris Warren. “I not want to have a situation where there is a free-forall and anything can come … I am open to what administration is proposing to limit amount of time we accept

waste at the landfill.” City hall needs to start thinking differently about how it handles garbage at the landfill, said Coun. Crystal Froese. Bringing non-yard waste garbage to the dump for free is counterproductive. Coun. Brian Swanson was also concerned about filling up the landfill without receiving revenue for doing so. He thought this would lead to “the next huge saga in Moose Jaw” about how to manage the dump. He wondered when the site would be expanded. Expanding the dump would be difficult since it is enclosed by the adjacent railway and Caribou Street, said Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering. “I feel we’re like we’re living in ’70s in this city with this legacy dump,” said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. “I look at other cities that are much further advanced and we are still struggling with these issues.” Tolmie wanted city administration to take a gradual approach to informing the community about what is acceptable at the dump and what isn’t. The next regular city council meeting is Monday, May 13.

Day of Mourning remembers those who died from workplace injury or disease

Total of 48 workers in Saskatchewan – double from last year – remembered during ceremony at Union Centre Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The National Day of Mourning ceremony at the Moose Jaw Union Centre carried a bit of a heavier tone of sadness this year because, despite all the efforts of the various organizations dedicated to the protection and safety of workers throughout the province, a total of 48 workers died from workplace accidents or disease in 2018. Almost double the total from the previous year. That’s unacceptable, says Stacey Landin, president of the Moose Jaw and District Labour Council, and a sign that things need to change – and soon – to ensure such numbers only fall in the future. “Unfortunately, it’s the highest number I remember… I honestly don’t know what to say to that, one is too many and it’s tragic, always,” she said prior to the special wreath-laying in memory of deceased workers. “So we have to put pressure on our employers to make our places safe, the legislators who make the rules around that and enforce that for employers, and to make sure that everyone can come home at the end of the day.” That’s the underlying message of the day – everyone comes home from work, every day.

Stacey Landin, president of the Moose Jaw and District Labour Council looks on after the wreath laying ceremony at the end of the Day of Mourning event. “It’s a bittersweet day, obviously, but it’s a day where we have a chance to remember those who came before us and put a lot of

[time in working] and into our communities and society,” Landin said. “It’s a day to honour them, but it’s also a day where

we commit to fighting back to protect others from unsafe measures at their work.” In addition to the wreath laying, the event included a reading of each of the 48 names of those who perished in the province. Electrical accidents, falls, crushing injuries and motor vehicle accidents – including six employees of the Humboldt Broncos – were among the terrible events that took lives in 2018. Then there were the workplace-related diseases from asbestos and lifetime smoke and chemical inhalation that robbed lives far earlier than might have happened with protective measures. “Unfortunately we recognize workers younger and younger these days, but we also recognize the older workers who suffer from cancer related to their work and that adds to the number,” Landin said. “These are the types of events that hopefully put that reminder in for people and take a moment to reflect on the work people have done and the sacrifices they’ve made for us to make a safer work place, but to also fight back. We mourn for the dead and fight for the living and that’s how we try to keep this in the forefront of people’s minds.”

Saskatchewan teams miss medals at wheelchair nationals

Wright, Sask 1 fall in quarter-finals, win fifth-place game; Ackerman misses playoffs by one win Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Both teams from the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre fell short of the medals during the final days of competition at the Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championship in Boucherville, Que. Team Saskatchewan 1 -- with skip Marie Wright, third Gil Dash, second Darwin Bender and lead Moose Gibson – reached the playoff round after posting a 4-2 round robin record but ended up dropping their quarter-final match 4-3 to Manitoba’s Dennis Thiessen. As the score would indicate, it was the closest of matches: trailing 2-1 after five ends, Wright scored a pair in the sixth to take the lead but wouldn’t be able to make it stick as Thiessen used the hammer to score one in the seventh and then stole one in the eighth to take the win. Wright did have a chance to win her final game of the tournament and Team Sask. 1 made the most of it, taking a 4-1 win over Ontario 2’s Chris Rees in the fifth-sixth place game. That match was just as close as the quarter-final in the early going, with Rees blanking the first three ends before Wright went on a steal streak, scoring one in each of the fourth and fifth ends before taking two in the

playoffs by a single win. Ackerman stole one in the first end against Fitzgerald, but it was a rocky road from there as she gave up four in the second, a steal of three in the third and another steal of one in the fourth to trail 8-1.

Novice Mustangs sweep doubleheader with Estevan Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

In the South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League action Saturday afternoon at the Kinsmen Sportsplex saw the Moose Jaw Mustangs White took a 7-1 win over the Estevan Voltz before the Mustangs Red rolled to a 10-3 win over Estevan in the second game of the day. For the Mustangs White, there was little drama as they rolled out to a 3-1 lead in the first period and never looked back, extending their edge to 4-1 through two before tacking on three insurance goals in the final frame. Luke Turner scored three times and added an assist for Moose Jaw while Caiden Arnott had a trio of goals. Teegan Kivol scored their final marker. Reid Yeroschak was in next. Things were far closer in the early going for the Mustangs Red. The two teams were tied 1-1 after the first period before Moose Jaw turned on the jets with five second

period goals and a 6-2 lead. Estevan managed to get one back and close to within three goals early in the third, but a four-goal outburst in the final 11:56 turned the contest into a blowout. Cooper Fulton had a five-point afternoon with three goals and two assists. Aiden McGillvray scored three times for the Mustangs to go along with two goals and two assists from Kashton Smith; Rhyen Ubell and Kaden Flanagan had one goal each, Hayden Nidesh added two helpers.

Kinsmen donate $5,000 to Moose Jaw Cobra Cheerleading Club Service organization pledging $15,000 over three years to local team Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

During the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Cobra Cheerleading Club open house on Friday night, there was the introduction of their new executive director, former University of Regina cheerleading coach Joshua Crerar Koshuba. Then the announcement that the club would be stepping up a level of competition with the formation of a new Level 3 team, the Lady Venom. And finally, the big reveal – sharp-eyed readers will have caught the ‘Kinsmen’ in the first paragraph and for good reason. Cory Olafson and Dave Stevenson from the local service club were on hand for a cheque presentation of $5,000 and to announce that Cobra is the latest local sports club to fall under their banner. “The last few years we’ve brought new clubs into the fold with the Kinsmen name and we’re super happy about it,” Olafson said. “That’s what we’re about, the kids and youth activities and helping kids stay involved in sports. So we’re super happy to be involved in the Kinsmen Cobra

Cheerleading club.” The sponsorship deal will see $15,000 donated by the Kinsmen over the next three years, with an option to extend the deal

indefinitely in the future. Things are looking up for the local club. “We’re not-for-profit, so every bit helps,” said Shay Schier, president of Cobra

Cheerleading. “We’re super excited, it’s not just the numbers, it’s being paired with them as well. They’re such a big part of this community that we can’t wait to be affiliated with them. So it’s really awesome.” While the funds haven’t been earmarked for any specific projects as of yet, there’s little question it’ll make a difference. “We have lots of things planned, we’re still going to have to do fundraising and we’re still going to have to work our butts off, but it’s definitely looking really good,” Schier said. For the Kinsmen, adding a cheerleaders to the mix made perfect sense given how the sport is taking off in amazing fashion, including the two rapidly growing clubs in Moose Jaw. “It’s a big club and it’s a growing sport,” Olafson said. “You see the meets on TV and they’re big deals. It’s getting bigger and bigger every year and hopefully we can grow with them.”

Vanier Collegiate receives championship and sportsmanship banners Vikings boys volleyball team honoured with 4A provincial title and SaskMilk Sportsmanship banners, Grajczyk-Jelinski enshrined with cross-country provincial banner. Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When the Vanier Vikings won the Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association provincial 4A boys volleyball championship this past November, it was an honour born of determination and pure skill on the court. But it was the way they won it all that brought them a second award on Friday afternoon during a special school assembly. SHSAA executive director Lyle McKellar presented the Vikings with the prestigious SaskMilk sportsmanship award, an honour that is given to one school in each sport in recognition of their actions on the court or field. “It’s definitely something to be proud of, getting that Sportsmanship Award was a really big thing, we actually put it as a goal to get because we wanted to work hard and be good on the court,” said the Vikings’ Kiean Klein, one of four captains with the 2018 squad. “Honestly (coach Levi) Broda always put it in our mind and we were never really big into selling and all that, we kind of played more humble and worked

We’re all really excited about it,” added Ryan Zerff. The on-court success meant a lot to the team’s veterans, especially winning both the city and provincial titles as seniors. “It’s definitely a good honour,” said Riley Follensbee. “I’ve been striving to win a provincial title my four years at Vanier and came up short in my basketball ca-

reer. But it’s nice to do it in a sport I never thought I’d be playing, I only started in my Grade 11 year so it was definitely super-nice.’ The Ned Andreoni gymnasium is ringed with banners from previous teams and their successful seasons. Now having two of their own, two they were responsible for, is a legacy they’ll be proud of for a long time. “It means a lot, it’s really cool to have a banner, something you can come back and

see, especially when you were part of the team that won the championship,” said Cooper Cole. So, looking back on it all a few months later, just how did they do it? “We always had sort of underlying confidence and we always kept a good level of ‘we knew we could do it’ and that really carried us through, knowing that we had the ability to achieve what we did,” Cole said. And, of course, plenty of team unity. “Definitely the chemistry, the pure vibe of the entire team,” added Follensbee. “You walk into gym and everyone is laughing and smiling. We never got down, never got mad, we battled through adversity and always managed to come out on top.” The Vikings weren’t the only honourees on the day – McKellar also presented cross-country provincial champion Allison Grajczyk-Jelinski with her SHSAA championship banner. The Vanier senior will be competing for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies track and field team next season.

Bantam AAA Canucks winless but show positives at Icebreaker tournament New high-level squad sees first tournament action of season in Lethbridge Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Bantam AAA Canucks, in their inaugural tournament appearance, took the field for a trio of games at the Icebreaker tournament in Lethbridge over the Apr. 26 weekend, and while they were unable to find the win column, there were enough positives that head coach Ray Wareham is plenty optimistic when it comes to their chances in league action back in Saskatchewan this year. “I was pretty happy, I thought we played well, ‘Wareham said. “I wasn’t sure what to expect since this is the first time Moose Jaw has had a Bantam AAA team in a number of years, but the kids played scrappy and played hard and came out on the losing side, unfortunately.” The Canucks opened with a 3-0 loss to Saskatoon on Friday before dropping a

6-4 decision to Red Deer on Saturday and a 6-3 decision to Red Deer in a rematch later that day. Competition on Sunday was snowed out. “Talking to some of the coaches out there, some of their teams had been together all winter working together when we’d just been outside the last couple of weeks,” Wareham said. “So I was pleasantly surprised, there’s stuff we can work with and now we just have to get outside. We know what to improve on and just have to get to work.’ The decision to move up to AAA Bantam – or 15-and-under – came out of the number of players who had been opting to play at that level with teams out of Regina. The Moose Jaw Minor Baseball Association saw strong enough registration numbers

this season to try and rectify that issue by forming both AAA and AA teams. “So that’s good for baseball in Moose Jaw and hopefully we can develop these kids to the point we eventually have Midget AAA baseball back in Moose Jaw as well,” Wareham said. “The numbers are there and now it’s our job to develop these kids. At the lower levels there’s some pretty good talent coming up too, so if we can just set the foundation and establish these AAA teams, hopefully Moose Jaw can get back on the map as far as AAA baseball goes.” What Wareham saw from his charges on the weekend – and as the scores showed – was some solid pitching and decent defence offset by a bit of scuffling at the plate. The weather might have had some-

thing to do with that, but Wareham wasn’t using it as an excuse, just a factor that might have hampered evaluation a touch. That was the same for both teams, just something everyone had to battle through. “But what we saw is really encouraging, we faced some really good competition and when we have a chance to play some more games it’ll be interesting to see where we are.”

Elites roll to dominant win in inaugural Bantam ‘A’ Lacrosse League game Team featuring players from throughout southern Saskatchewan takes 13-4 win over Regina Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

It might have taken the South Saskatchewan Elites a couple of periods to fully find their scoring stride against the Regina Barracuda on Thursday night at Mosaic Place, but once they did, what was once a close lacrosse game turned into an out-and-out shooting gallery for the home team. Which makes sense, considering it was the first game ever for a team comprised of the best-of-the-best players from Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Estevan and Swift Current, playing in a new ‘A’ lacrosse league designed to bring the top players in the province together for a higher level of competition. “Last year was the first for the South Sask League, so we had a good thing going with (small-town teams) and the interlock games with Regina,” said Elites coach Steve Michaluk. “So we wanted to keep that going and elected to have an exhibition schedule in this ‘A’ league so we can all still play on our club teams. It’s some extra lacrosse for the kids who want to develop and take their game to the next level, play against kids who are like-minded and have similar interests, so that’s how we got into it. “It’s an experimental season for the whole province and hopefully it goes well.” There’s no question it went well for the Elites in their opener. After finding themselves tied 2-2 through the first period and leading 6-3 after two, South Sask poured it on in the final frame, scoring seven goals to

take a 13-4 win. “After the first period, I think we really came together as a team and brought it to them,” said team captain Nathan Wagstaff, who plays for the Estevan Voltz in the SSLL and picked up two goals on Thursday. “It was our first time together as a team, so we were just trying to get used to each other and know each other,

but once we got comfortable with each other we really shined.” Michaluk saw much the same from the bench. “We know these kids, but they hadn’t really played together,” he said. “We went over simple line-change systems so we knew what we were doing, some positions so we knew who we were running with. We trusted they all had some passing and catching skills and a sense for loose balls, which they did… as the game went on our loose ball dominance took over and we started shooting low and finding the twine. It was good.” The scoring was impressively spread out: Mason Williams, Zealand Rayner and Rowan Calvert each scored two goals. Lukas Salkin, Liam Fitzpatrick, Trent Benning, Carter Michaluk and Chase Foord all had single markers. Wagstaff, Fitzpatrick and Davin Williams all had two assists each. The Bantam Mustangs standout duo of Walker Williams and Luke Andrews split time in goal during the win. As well as things went in their first game, Wagstaff predicted even higher scores in the future. “Oh yeah, way bigger,” he said with a huge smile. “We’re coming.” Next action for the Elite is Tuesday, May 7 when they travel to Regina for a rematch with the Barracuda.

Warriors select Eastman’s Mateychuk with first round Bantam Draft pick High-scoring defenceman had 23 goals, 61 points in 36 games playing Bantam AAA last season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Because of the trades that built the 2017-18 team for the Moose Jaw Warriors into the Scotty Munro Trophy-winning squad they’d become, the Warriors didn’t have a selection in this year’s draft until the fourth round. That was the situation the day before things were set to kick off but it turns out, Warriors general manager Alan Millar had a plan, and that involved a blockbuster deal that sent Jett Woo to the Calgary Hitmen for a pair of players and, yes, a first round pick in this year’s draft. “We certainly had a gap going in, and that goes back to adding Brayden Burke and Kale Clague a couple years back,” Millar said. “But at the same time, since we made those trades we had planned strategies to add picks and young players along the way. Some things worked out and some things didn’t and we just felt that with Jett being a signed NHL player who’s only going to play one more year in our league, in the best interest of our club we needed to pursue that at this Draft.” The Tribe used that 11th overall selection on flashy defenceman Denton Mateychuk, who suited up for the Eastman Selects in the Manitoba Bantam AAA Hockey League last season and racked up 23 goals and 61 points in only 36 games. “He’s a dynamic young player who had outstanding numbers in Bantam with Eastend as a defenceman. He’s a modern-type defenceman in terms of his dynamic, he’s offensive, he’s a great puck mover and I know how excited our guys were when he fell to 11. Obviously making the big deal and then adding Mateychuk at 11, it was a great start to our day.” Mateychuk isn’t the biggest player, standing in at 5-foot-7 and 170 pounds. But the native of Dominion City, Man.

has a skill set Millar compared to Lethbridge’s dynamic rearguard Calen Addison and could evolve into a player similar to former Warriors standout Scott Schoneck. “He’s kind of that smaller puck-moving guy who’s mobile and has offensive ability and can quarterback your power play,” Millar said. “So he’s in that mold and really fits with where we’re at in terms of what we’re building and what we have on our back end.” The Warriors selected nine players through the remainder of the draft. In the fourth round, 82nd overall, the Warriors selected Jagger Firkus from the Lloydminster Bantam AAA Bobcats. The 5-foot-5, 125-pound forward had 30 goals and 65 points in 30 games along with four goals and 15 points in four playoff games. In the fifth round, 104th overall, the Warriors selected Carson Brisson from the Leduc Bantam AAA Oil Kings. The 5-foot-10, 130-pound defenceman had 10 goals and 37 points in 32 games to go along with a goal and five points in two playoff games. Three picks later, the Warriors added goaltender Kyle Kelsey from Burnaby Winter Club Bantam Prep in the CSSHL. Kelsey had a 2.67 goals against average and .918 save percentage while posting a 12-3 record in the regular season. In the sixth round, 117th overall, the Warriors selected Jaden Waddell from Rink Hockey Academy Bantam Prep in the CSSHL. The 6-foot-0, 185-pound defenceman picked up three goals and 12 points in 29 games. In the eighth round, 170th overall, the Warriors selected Carter McLeod from Edge School Bantam Prep in the CSSHL. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound right wing scored 12

goals and 18 points in 30 games and added a pair of goals in three playoff games. In the ninth round, 178th overall, the Warriors selected Luke Robson from the Southwest Cougars Bantam AAA. The 5-foot-5, 133-pound forward scored 17 goals and 34 points in 32 games to go along with two goals and seven points in five playoff games. In the ninth round, 192nd overall, the Warriors selected Dakota McIntosh from the Winnipeg Warriors Bantam AAA. The 5-foot-9, 162-pound centre sored 32 goals and 62 points in 34 games and added three goals and five points in the playoffs. In the 10th round, 214th overall, the Warriors selected Darien Schaan from Rink Hockey Academy Bantam Prep. The 5-foot-9, 169-pound right defenceman scored twice and added 10 points in 29 games. With their final pick in the 11th round, 236th overall, the Warriors selected Thomas Tien from St. George’s School Bantam Prep of the CSSHL. The 5-foot-6, 160-pound centre scored 24 goals and 64 points in 30 games to go along with four goals and six points in three playoff contests. “Time will tell, well there are 22 teams walking out of the building who feel they’ve had a great draft and a year or two down the road we’ll know,” Millar said. “But with (assistant general manager) Jason Ripplinger and our group, I know we were well prepared, guys worked hard all year to put their draft list together, they trusted it today and stuck to what we wanted in terms of our players for our hockey club and added 10 good prospects to our list.”

Warriors trade Woo to Hitmen in order to bolster line-up, Bantam Draft Deal sends NHL-signed defenceman to Calgary for Korczak, Yeryomenko and high draft picks Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Jett Woo is no longer a member of the Moose Jaw Warriors. Moose Jaw Warriors general manager Alan Millar announced Thursday that the standout defenceman was part of a blockbuster deal that saw Woo sent to the Calgary Hitmen for a package that included forward Ryder Korczak (2002), defenceman Vladislav Yeryomenko (1999), a first round pick in 2019 (11th overall), a conditional third round pick in 2020, and a second round pick 2021. “It was a really difficult decision to make in terms of moving a quality kid and a very good player in Jett,” Miller explained. “From our point of view, we have to start the process of building the next team that can contend and compete and we’ve made a lot of decisions over the last couple years in trying to contend and win. “We’ve made some big moves and given up some picks and young players, and the time comes around where you have to restock and add some young players into our program.”

Korczak, 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, is from Yorkton and heading into his 17-year-old season. He had eight goals and 15 points in 50 regular season games in his rookie campaign with and added two goals and five points in 11 games in the playoffs. Korczak was selected by the Hitmen in the second round, 29th overall, at the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft. In 2017-18 he played Midget AAA with Yorkton and had 12 goals and 34 points in 42 games. In 201617 he had 27 goals and 83 points in 30

games playing Bantam ‘AA’ with Yorkton (SBAAL). Vladislav Yeryomenko, 6-foot-0 and 187lbs, is from Vitebsk, Belarus and will fill one of the Tribe’s overage slots. Last season with the Hitmen he had seven goals 33 points in 63 games. In the playoffs, he had two goals and five points in 11 games. Yeryomenko was selected by the Nashville Predators in the fifth round, 151st overall, at the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. In 2017-18 with the Hitmen, he had 13 goals and 41 points in 63 games. “We’re really pleased with the return we got in terms of the players and picks who were involved, we think it’s the right thing for our franchise, but at the same time it’s a very difficult decision when you move a player like Jett Woo,” Millar said. Had the Warriors not been able to gather as much as they liked in return for Woo, the trade might not have had much luster. But adding a dynamic future defenceman in Denton Mateychuk with their first-

round pick (see related story) and a decent amount of immediate skill with the two players offered has things looking exceptionally positive. “I know how excited we are with Denton Mateychuk coming in at 11, and then we add Ryder Korczak who is a very good young player who fits in with what we’re building, and an NHL-drafted defenceman who is a 40-point guy who can ease the pressure on the back end with the loss of Woo,” Millar said. “He’s a veteran puck-moving guy who’s a right shot and can anchor the power play.” In the end, Millar wished Woo the best while looking forward to seeing what the new season will bring with the new-look Warriors. “It was a tough decision, but it was the right thing for our franchise, the right thing for our club in terms of what we’re going to try and do over the next couple of years,” he said. “We’re going to be young but we’re going to have an exciting team next year.”

Southwestern Saskatchewan farmland price increase leads province By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express AGRIMART

EXPRESS Farm land prices in Southwestern Saskatchewan factored in driving Saskatchewan prices above the national average. Saskatchewan average farmland prices increased 7.4 per cent in 2018, compared with 6.6 per cent across Canada, according to the Farm Credit Canada annual farmland price survey. In Southwestern Saskatchewan, average prices increased 12.5 per cent as producers either paid premiums for strategic blocks or for land they plan on making more productive.

Prices in the southwest ranged between $800 and $2,700 an acre. East Central Saskatchewan farmland prices increased 11.6 per cent within a range of $900 to $2,500 an acre. With average increases of 1.7 per cent southeastern land prices increased the least, running between $800 and $3,400 an acre. Northeastern farm land prices were up six per cent in a range of $900 to $2,600 while northwestern prices posted a 4.3 per cent increase between $600 and $3,300. West-Central prices were up 3.2 per cent running from $600 to $3,300 an acre. While Saskatchewan farmland price increases were three times consumer inflation, the rate of increase dropped substan-


I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to my neighbours, the Silversides, Moore’s, MacDirmids and Beverly Hammond for their help to get a senior through another harsh Sask winter. Their snow shoveling, food, shopping and errands are deeply appreciated, again a sincere Thank-You.

tially from 10.2 per cent in 2017. Across Canada the average price increase fell from 8.4 per cent in 2017 to 6.6 per cent. Land prices increased in every province except Nova Scotia. Alberta land prices increased marginally by 7.4 per cent with a range of values be-

tween $1,000 an acre in the Peace River region to $14,000 in irrigated south. Manitoba land prices increased 3.7 per cent compared with five per cent in 2017 with prices running from $600 an acre in the parkland region to $6,500 in the Pembina Valley. Ontario prices were up 3.6 per cent compared with a 9.4 per cent boost in 2017. Prices ranged between $500 an acre in the north to $24,000 in the south central Quebec land prices increased marginally over 2017 by 8.3 per cent, running between $500 and $21,300 an acre.

From The Kitchen Za n e G re y h a d h e a l t h y app e t i t e f o r f r o n t i e r l i fe By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Zane Grey was a prolific writer of novels about life and adventures on the Western frontier. While writing his books, he visited the West and became an admirer of wagon train cooks and studied how they managed to prepare tasty meals without the equipment of an in-house kitchen. The Zane Grey Cookbook features recipes gleaned from such observances and then modified for more modern homemakers. Despite those modifications, the true Western lifestyle of his day has not been lost. ••• Fish Soup 3 tbsps. butter 1 cup chopped mushrooms 4 cups water 1-16 oz. can tomatoes 1/2 lb. minced clams 4 cups white-fleshed fish, cut into 1 inch cubes 1 cup scallops 2 cups oysters, with liquid 2 cups shelled shrimp 1 cup diced scallions

1 tsp. each salt and pepper In a kettle or Dutch oven, melt butter and saute mushrooms. Add water, canned tomatoes, clams, fish, scallops, oysters, shrimp and scallions. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serves 8-10. ••• Tenderfoot Liver Cakes 2 tbsps. bacon fat 2 lbs. calves’ liver 1 large onion, diced 2 eggs, beaten well salt and pepper to taste 1/2 tsp. sage 3/4 cup bread crumbs several strips of bacon noodles or rice Heat 1 tbsp. bacon fat in skillet. Add liver and cook quickly until firm. Remove from skillet and mince very finely or run through a meat grinder. Mix liver, onion, eggs, salt and pepper, sage and bread crumbs. Form into cakes and wrap a slice of bacon around each cake. Fry in remaining tablespoon of bacon fat until

Positive response to mental health first aid course

Larissa Kurz The Parks and Recreation department has brought the Red Cross Psychological First Aid course to the city, and program supervisor Shelly Howe said the first few dates of the course have seen a lot of interest. “We’ve had some businesses and organizations requests to send their staff people to it, as well we’ve had some general interest from the public, as they get to hear about it,” said Howe. The course focuses on the effects of stress, trauma, and grief, and helps build the skills needed to provide self-care and the care of others during times of duress — Mental health first aid: (Shutterstock) things that are perhaps not addressed in a standard first aid course. “Because of course dealing with stress in one’s life and developing resiliency skills to get through crises is a fairly prevalent topic in our society these days,” said Howe. “It’s an excellent, excellent course. And I believe people leave with information and tools that they can use in their day to day lives.” The all-day course has already run two sessions in March and on May 4. Due to the positive response from the community regarding the program, Howe says there are plans to schedule more dates in June and onwards into the fall. “I think it’s going to be something that people are going to look for ongoing. Similar to a standard first aid, the psychological first aid is for everyone and anyone,” said Howe. Registration happens at the Kinsmen Sportsplex, which is also where people can go to find out more about the course — either at the front desk or by calling (306) 694-4483. Course dates will be listed at

- Caring for Your Feet -

What’s an Orthotic and What to Look for When Buying? Dr. Ata Stationwala A foot orthotic is a device that is contoured to the entire foot and is used to reduce abnormal motion or posture of the foot. It can be used to treat a varied number of conditions from simple foot strains to more complicated postural imbalances. The term foot orthotic gets used very loosely (in the industry). I would argue that a true

Seeding start way ahead of last spring By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Seeding operations were ahead of last year when EXPRESS April ended with five per cent complete compared with one per cent in 2018. Last year cool weather delayed seeding, according to the first Saskatchewan Agriculture crop report of the season. The five-year average shows three per cent of seeding is usually complete when May arrives. Seeding is most advanced in the southwest with 11 per cent in the ground, versus nine per cent on average. Seeding has started around Limerick, Mossbank and Gravelbourg. Around Moose Jaw, seeding has started with five per cent complete. Rain and snow was welcome with 28 inches of snow at Shaunovan, eight inches at Gull Lake and six inches at Gravelbourg. Topsoil moisture is rated one per cent surplus, 67 per cent adequate, 27 per cent short and five per cent very short in the southwest. Across the province, topsoil moisture is rated one per cent surplus, 62 per cent adequate, 30 per cent short and seven per cent very short. In southeastern Saskatchewan which includes Moose Jaw, topsoil moisture is rated one per cent surplus, 89 per cent adequate, seven per cent short and three per cent very short. Rain and snow in the southeast ranged from a trace to six inches with just over three inches in Moose Jaw and Briercrest.


foot orthotic is one that is made specifically for you. I would call all other available devices “arch supports.” For many people, over-the-counter arch supports are adequate when needing something to provide a little more support to your feet. They can help with mild strains and fatigue. Not all arch supports are the same and not all arch supports will resolve your symptoms. For a custom orthotic to work, multiple steps have to be taken. A proper diagnosis is key. This is achieved by performing a physical exam, gait assessment and biomechanical examination. Without knowing what needs to change or what needs to be corrected a proper device cannot be prescribed. A proper 3D impression of the foot needs to be obtained. Favourable methods include: casting, foam box impression and 3D laser scans. The

Add berries and sugar, stirring constantly. Stir in butter. Keep mixture at a simmer. To make dumplings, sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Beat eggs, stir in milk and add to dry ingredients. Mix into a thick batter. Drop batter into simmering berries, a spoonful at a time. Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Serves 6.

clinician will then be able to prescribe the device determining multiple parameters including materials, style, cast corrections, additions, etc. The last step is the manufacturing of the device. If this isn’t done to the correct specifications, the device will not feel comfortable or be of benefit. Devices should be made by a certified lab. A lot needs to happen for an orthotic to work. Sometimes adjustments are required. Make sure you get your devices from someone who can make minor adjustments in house. In my years of practice, I have seen many excellent orthotics prescribed and manufactured by competent practitioners, but unfortunately, I have also seen many poor devices. Hopefully this article helps you ask the right questions and make an informed choice. Until next time.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith


A Woman of Influence The purpose of this column is to encourage and inspire, yet, I admit there are times I wish I could write about politics. I know those two subjects seemingly don’t fit together in some weird way but I think I can weave both subjects into my column today. If someone would’ve given me helpful advice as a wife and mom back in the early years of marriage and parenting, I think I could’ve used the sound wisdom that “you have more power than you realize� to affect my husband and girls. I mean this in a good, healthy sort of way. Of course, yes, we can have a big effect on someone negatively, but I’m referring to the massive positive effect we can have on our families that we may not realize we have. This, in turn, will affect all those they come in contact with. Just think with me for a moment... if a certain leader of our country (I won’t mention any names) would’ve had a mom who had instilled values into her son such as the value of hard work, respect, honesty, integrity, responsibility, empathy and we all know this list could go on and on and on, I am positive our country would be in a much better position globally, spiritually, emotionally, physically and financially. I don’t know his mom personally, but I would question whether he’d had these types of lessons lived out in front of him as the foundation for him to build his life upon. According to the dictionary, influence is the “capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something.� Melanie Staggers suggests, “The home is the most influential entity in society.� This is a staggering statement. Our homes are the breeding ground for what we will see in the future lived out in society; one can see why the enemy has caused so much chaos in our homes. If we would only grasp the amount of impact we have on society that comes from our home life. Our homes are the greenhouse of character building. Our spouse and children are good soil in which to sow good seeds. The atmosphere of our homes is the fertilizer that helps those seeds of love, forgiveness, integrity and compassion to grow. Our homes can not only be the refuge and safe harbor from the world, but we can also turn the tide with our godly influence and bring positive change. “A wife of noble character, who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.� Proverbs 31:10 I’ve always had a fascination with rubies since my paternal grandmother’s name was Ruby and my birthstone is also a ruby. It is interesting to note that it is impossible to standardize the grading scale with rubies due to the fact that every ruby is distinct and so different from another. When a ruby is priced, it varies based on its color but the tone is not the only determining factor. Three elements must be evaluated together; hue, tone and saturation of the color. I like that a ruby was used in this proverbial verse. It suggests that a wife has many qualities that are essential in her marriage and home. Ladies, God has woven us very intricately in order that we can have influence in all aspects society all from theEast place we call home.

Calvin Gammel, Funeral Director 306-693-4550

Calvin Douglas Barry, aged 91 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 17th, 2019. Calvin was born in Tuxford, SK on July 15th, 1927. He was a successful entrepreneur in the farming industry, and a man who never took no for an answer. He lied about his age to enlist in World War II but luckily for his wife, he did not go to the front lines. Calvin married Audrey Allison in October 1949. To diversify, he crop dusted and flew a little yellow plane over the Saskatchewan fields, and raised thousands of turkeys. He never complained, not ever. His favourite pastimes were hunting, fishing, and spending time in Arizona. Before solving a problem, his grandkids would say WWCBD “what would Cal Barry do?”. The man was a legend. May we all take a note from Cal’s book. Ask for what you want, don’t take crumbs, and appreciate life. Cal had a special bond with his sons-in-law and the joke was they were the sons Audrey could not give him. Calvin is survived by his wife, Audrey; daughters, Deb (Calvin) and Patti (Len) and their families – 4 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren; brother Wray; sister-in-law, Helen; as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Please join us for Cal’s Farewell Party on Saturday, May 11th, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. in the Moose Jaw Wildlife Centre, 1396 3rd Ave NE, Moose Jaw, SK. Lunch will be provided and everyone is welcome to bring and share stories of Cal. In lieu of flowers, donations in Calvin’s name may be made to the WaWa Patient Travel Fund, 2065 Hamilton St, Regina, SK S4P 2E1. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Calvin Gammel, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
