Provincial Music Festival expands age categories for 2019 Larissa Kurz





For its 110th anniversary, the Saskatchewan Music Festival Association will be hosting their provincial finals back in Moose Jaw once again, just over a month after the city’s district music festival. Carol Donhauser, SMFA executive director, is excited to be returning to the Friendly City, as she finds Moose Jaw has great venues for music. Following 47 district competitions, the finals will see over 300 musicians and singers from across the province, participating in three age categories: junior, intermediate, and senior. The intermediate category is new this year, said Donhauser, as the association felt that expanding would offer more young performers the chance to compete. Junior competitors age from 13 to 15 years old and will be attending the mini-workshops and receiving adjudicator feedback just like the intermediate and senior level performers. The Music Association hopes that including the younger performers will foster a dedication to their music. The new junior level will not be included in the annual Grand Awards competition,

The group of eleven local performers who were recommended on to the provincial level, following this year’s Moose Jaw Music Festival. where the top performers in each discipline are helping keep the musical community will perform for judges for awards.

Mining: Supporting Local and Global Communities



Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

The success of Saskatchewan’s mining industry is the focus of Saskatchewan Mining Week, taking place from May 26 to June 1. This week provides an opportunity to celebrate the mining industry achievements and contributions to the economic growth of Saskatchewan, and its role in providing employment, energy and food security to the world. The mining industry is extremely important to the people and the economy of our province and is one of the province’s largest and most dynamic economic sectors, providing over 30,500 jobs in Saskatchewan. Special mining events are scheduled throughout the province during this dedicated week. The Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce will host a Mining Breakfast May 29th with a presentation by Saskatchewan Mining Association (SMA) President Pam Schwann. Last year, Moose Jaw was host to the 50th Annual Emergency Response/Mine Rescue Skills Competition. This year the competition will be held at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon Saturday, June 1st. Our province is the largest potash producer in the world, home to almost half of the world’s potash reserves. Saskatchewan is also the world’s second largest primary uranium producer, with a catalogue of other minerals such as gold, base metals, precious metals and diamonds. Our mining industry provides

valuable employment across the province, including several northern Saskatchewan communities. The Fraser Institute’s Annual Survey of Mining Companies 2018, released this past February 28th, has ranked Saskatchewan third in the world and number one in Canada for mining investment attractiveness. In the past decade, more than $3 billion has been invested in mineral exploration in our province with an estimated $228 million invested in 2018. Two years ago, K+S Potash Canada officially opened its Bethune potash solution mine, Saskatchewan’s first new potash mine in nearly 50 years. BHP Billiton has also made substantial investments and we are confident the BHP Jansen project will attract more investment in the province. SSR Mining Inc. is planning a seven-year, $90 million expansion for its Seabee gold operation located 125 kilometers north east of La Ronge; Saskatchewan’s only active gold mine. Mining companies operating in Saskatchewan have been proactive in reducing their environmental footprint over the past decade, including decreasing GHG emissions intensity. Case in point, Saskatchewan’s full lifecycle GHG emissions intensity for potash is only 29% of the global average; Saskatchewan uranium is used to power clean baseload energy in the United States, Europe, Asia and closer to home in Ontario and New Brunswick, and innovative CCS technology captures C02 emissions from Saskatchewan’s coal-fired power plants. Saskatchewan mining companies are global leaders in sustainable mineral production. Mosaic and K+S potash mines provide employment for many people living in the Moose Jaw area. Their contributions to our local economy and their support of many charitable local projects and programs, is much appreciated. Saskatchewan Mining Week helps us to recognize and be more aware of these many community contributions.

To kick off Brain Injury Awareness Month this year, join us at the first concert in Crescent Park. On Wednesday May 29th, the Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association is holding a concert. Come out and enjoy live music, while supporting a great cause. It will take place at the Amphitheatre, starting at 7 p.m. Admission by donation. The concert will be presented by Duo Dez, two talented musicians, that explore a diverse program of classical guitar music. Bob Spuzak, of Moose Jaw, is willing to share his story at the event to increase awareness of brain injury. He has been living with a brain injury for six years, due to a motor-vehicle accident at a busy Moose Jaw intersection with the Trans-Canada Highway. Spuzak is fortunate to have support from his family and friends, but also knows the importance of the programs offered by SBIA. Classical guitarists, Scott Butler and Nolan Polan are Manitoba boys who have created the classical guitar duo, Duo Dez. Both fell in love with music at a young age, pursued their music careers at the University of Manitoba, where they began to play music together. The Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association strives to prevent brain injuries and to improve the lives of survivors and their families. For more information and donation opportunities visit

Central Collegiate’s breakfast program receives $2,500 boost from two agriculture businesses

The breakfast club at Central Collegiate will continue to provide healthy food for students in the mornings thanks to donations from two agriculture-focused companies. Representatives from Simpson Seeds and Farm Credit Canada (FCC) visited the school on May 22 to make their donations of $500 and $2,000, respectively. The breakfast program has operated for five years at the school. FCC chose Central Collegiate and its breakfast club after learning about the program through Simpson Seeds. There are several initiatives FCC focuses on as part of its corporate social responsibility, Mueller continued. These include agriculture safety, fighting hunger, giving back to rural communities, and supporting agriculture in education. The donations are huge and will ensure the breakfast program flourishes, said vice-principal Lonny Holmes. There are times when the program just gets by, but with these donations, the club will be

Between 45 and 90 students use Central Collegiate’s breakfast program on a daily basis. The program recently received two donations worth $2,500. Photo by Jason G. Antonio able to feed more students until the end of the school year and have a good start for next year.

Holmes explained that some kids need a full breakfast in the morning, while others are simply busy — with swimming,

for example — and need a piece of toast before class. This is why the breakfast club room can be busy from 8:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. The number of students who use the breakfast services ranges from 45 to 90 on a daily basis, Holmes said. It’s slightly busier in the winter than the summer, while students who participate in sports can stay at school instead of going back home. The core purpose of Simpson Seeds is to nourish the world, so it likes to support programs that feed people, said spokeswoman Elyce Simpson Fraser. The breakfast club is important for many students, including her son. It’s handy to have the program when students miss breakfast at home or are in a rush to get to school. This was Simpson Fraser’s first time visiting the breakfast club and she appreciated seeing the students use the program. She pointed out students need healthy and nutritious food to support their learning and cognitive abilities.

South Hill event to feature scavenger hunt and historic trolley tour Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A scavenger hunt, food, music and historic tours by trolley are some of the exciting activities that will take place during this year’s South of the Bridge Day celebrations. The South Hill Community Association is hosting its seventh annual South of the Bridge Day on Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The celebration takes place on the 400 block of Lillooet Street near Fine Foods. “This day is to celebrate the South Hill Community Association, kind of everything that’s south of the bridge,� said Crystal Froese, president of the association. “We want to show our pride for the South Hill, as well as encourage people to get out and have fun and do some recreational opportunities.� The community association created a scavenger hunt that is physically accessible for everyone, she explained. The hunt will take participants to landmarks and other fun areas they might not have known about before. There will also be a South Hill heritage tour using Tourism Moose Jaw’s trolley. Admission is by donation and

it is a 30-minute ride. The trolley will take riders around the community and give them some idea of the history within the neighbourhoods. There will be stories about some of the landmarks and the people who contributed to the area. Hot dogs will be sold in the parking lot of Fine Foods, which is also where the police, firefighters and other emergency personnel will be on hand to speak with residents and talk about some of their equipment. A clown and face painter will also be on hand to keep families entertained. “It’s going to be a really fun day,� Froese said, noting there were more than 100 kids who took part in the scavenger hunt last year. This year there are more exciting prizes participants can win.

I want to clarify a comment that someone made the other day on facebook referring to the fact that our reporters’ stories are written at a grade 6 level. It always seems that those that make these kinds of comments usually aren’t educated enough even to make comments such as these. Grade three was probably Joan Ritchie the best five years of their EDITOR life. The truth be known, we at the Moose Jaw Express write for the reader and to put it straight, the stories are written at a level where all levels of literacy can read them and make heads or tails out of what is in print, at a middle school level, the truth be told. For anyone that knows printed media, this is a newspaper, not a dissertation for those holding a degree. All our reporters have an education background in journalism and are qualified to write at whatever level is appropriate for the readership, in this case being at a level where all levels of readership can read it and understand it, even you our critic. It’s usually the person with the biggest mouth that get their foot caught in it. **** City Council these days seems to be a hotbed of information and confrontation. Public platforms should never be used to berate another to establish a point, whether there is a disagreement or not. There is a proverb that says, “Without counsel, plans go awry...But in the multitude of counselors they are established.” When there are a number of individuals making a decision that affects many, more input offers different perspectives on how to see issues. As always, every individual has the right to offer their input. In this case, statistics were shared in a recent council meeting to make a point; as far as I see it, statistics are factual and do have some validity in stating a case. Running with the pack may not always be the right way to go; time will tell. **** It’s that time of year again, the Explore Moose Jaw magazine 2019 edition is out in print and on the streets. If you haven’t got your copy, drop by the Express office at 32 Manitoba St to pick one up. It’s full of great stories on what’s going on in and around Moose Jaw this summer.

Preventative health care centre coming to Moose Jaw Larissa Kurz

Prodrome Sciences Inc., a healthcare company that is currently the only centre offering prodrome-based blood testing for disease prevention, is opening its first outreach health centre — right here in Moose Jaw. Aside from the head office in Saskatoon, this Prodrome Health Centre will be the first of its kind for Prodrome Sciences. The centre will be located at 1350 Lakeview Road, which is just off of Highway 1. Its purpose is more than just a health clinic; for a membership fee, the centre offers the prodrome blood test as well as a number of professionals to help address the results found in the blood test. Dr. Dayan Goodenowe, founder of Prodrome Sciences and one of the researchers who discovered the usefulness of the prodrome blood test, hopes the centre will offer new options for disease prevention. “The health center allows people first to get this information, and then there are useful programs that people can take proactive action, to not only prevent future diseases from occurring but improve their current health state,” said Goodenowe. The blood test developed by Prodrome Sciences is the only one of its kind currently being offered to the public, outside of expensive clinical trials. It measures an individual’s prodrome biomarkers for changes that indicate a risk for future disease. The biochemical changes seen using this test can happen long before disease symptoms fully appear, meaning that the prodrome blood test is a preventative test, rather than a reactionary one. Dr. Goodenowe paints a useful analogy in explaining the benefit of early detection of disease markers: it allows time for lifestyle changes that may help. “We were identifying bald tires before they became

PHC front doors: (supplied) flat,” said Goodenowe. “If you have a bald tire on your car and you don’t have time to go get a brand new tire — or it’s not possible — then you drive on better streets, or you change your behavior and your habits to prevent that negative outcome; in this case a flat tire.” “[It] just provides additional information that can potentially be useful today,” he added. “Not just some theoretical future benefit, but it could actually benefit in the relatively short term.” The grand opening of the new centre will be on May 29, with a reception from 2 - 4pm at the Centre’s location. Later that evening, Dr. Goodenowe and Dr. Mitchel King will give a lecture on Alzheimer’s and how it intersects with prodrome science, also at the centre at 7pm. Organizers welcome anyone interested in the new centre to stop by the afternoon reception and to bring any questions with them. Those interested in attending the lecture are asked to RSVP by email to or by phone at 1 (877) 280-5880.

Tom lukiwski announces conservative plan to fight human trafficking Tom Lukiwski Report MP Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan

Tom Lukiwski

MP Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan

Tom Lukiwski, Member of Parliament for Moose Jaw – Lake Centre - Lanigan, announced the next step in the Conservative plan for A Safer Canada. A Conservative government, led by Prime Minister Andrew Scheer, will take a stand to protect the vulnerable members of our society and keep human traffickers off our streets. “From small towns to big cities,

we’re seeing a concerning and disturbing rise in human trafficking,” said Lukiwski. “Of course, many of the victims are children. Preying on society’s most vulnerable is truly despicable.” The Toronto Police have referred to human trafficking in Canada as “an epidemic,” with over 1,000 cases in the past five years. 72% of victims are under the age of 25, and a quarter under 18. Indigenous Canadians are also disproportionately victimized, making up at least half of all human trafficking victims. The current Liberal government has failed to combat human trafficking. For the last three and a half years, human traffickers have received the message that fighting their heinous crimes isn’t a priority. The Liberals also inexplicably cancelled the National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking, which was created by the previous Conservative government.

Our Conservative plan to combat human trafficking includes: • renewing the National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking • updating the Criminal Code to reflect the international definition of human trafficking in the Palermo Protocol and help our justice system secure convictions • ensuring that human traffickers receive consecutive sentences for their crimes • ending automatic bail for those charged with human trafficking offences “Conservatives have a strong plan to put survivors first and keep traffickers off our streets,” said Lukiwski. “It’s time to take swift action to end human trafficking for good and equip organizations with the resources they need to rescue and protect survivors.”

Moisture short fields increase significant in three weeks By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Rain is needed badly in most of Saskatchewan to replenish freshly seeded fields that are drying out from high winds. Little rain is forecast during the next week. The percentage of cultivated land with very short moisture doubled to 14 per cent between May 7 and May 21, according to the weekly crop report from the Saskatch-

ewan Ministry of Agriculture. Meanwhile the percentage of adequate moisture fell from 52 per cent to 46 per cent. In the Moose Jaw-Weyburn Regina crop district adequate moisture fell from twothirds to just under half from three weeks ago.

Western Development Museum to host second annual fashion show Moose Jaw Express Staff

The Western Development Museum is hosting its second annual fashion show in early June. The Green will be taking place on Saturday, June 8 starting at 1 p.m. Residents are encouraged to attend the event to check out vintage fashions and fabulous styles from days gone by. The fashion show will highlight more than 40 ensembles and accessory pieces from the museum’s extensive collection in different hues of green. The clothing ranges in age from 1946 through the 1990s. The show is a special opportunity for the museum to exhibit many pieces that are usually kept in storage at the WDM’s corporate office in Saskatoon and a different way to tell Saskatchewan’s story through a different aspect of life. Refreshments will be served following the event. Regular admission applies to get into the T:4.85” museum; WDM members get in for free. For more information, visit or call 306-693-5989.

Cropland moisture conditions in the southwest region changed with 45 per cent adequate, down by nine points. Very short fields tripled to 14 per cent. Snow in the southwest improved pasture and hay land conditions slightly. Seeding across the province more than doubled in one week to 73 per cent com-

CORNER I have a minor medical problem, a hernia, that will need some minor surgery. After I was referred to the surgeon, I eventually was able to have the consultation appointment. We talked about the by Dale “bushy” Bush procedure and, of course, I was able to suggest ways to improve the cutting and slicing because I asked Mr Google for information. He knows everything. The surgeon took that advice in stride but he seemed surprised when I asked him point blank why he was the best man for the job, like he was a plumber or electrician. He smiled and replied, “I am the only hernia surgeon in our area, but maybe if you ask about me down at “Coffee Row” you might be more at ease about my abilities”. I must have looked puzzled because he said, “Go down to Jim Norton’s any weekday morning and just listen”. Then I got it! “Coffee Row” is that two or three tables of old retired guys that meets for a daily coffee, maybe a pastry or donut. They are definitely there for conversation about current and past events. They also solve all the

Coffee Row

daily problems of the world and do so voluntarily. I do not hang out at Jimmies much, but I knew exactly what my doctor was saying and he was sure that the scuttlebutt on his abilities from the scuttlebutters would be the scuttlebuttiest. After thinking about it, I began to feel better about his confidence, but that never stopped me from trying to get the lowdown from the horse’s mouth so I tried to crash one of the daily meetings at Jim Norton’s coffee row on my next trip to town. It was not rocket science to figure out which table at Jim Norton’s was the one that would produce the results I was after. There were only four gentlemen in my age range (60-80) that were discussing anything. Their discussion was about whether or not Ken Linsmen (Philadelphia Flyers) or Brad Marchand (Boston Bruins) was the best/worst pest to play in the NHL. Cool, a topic I could actually relate to, so I sat at the next table to the chatty foursome and waited for a chance to comment and hopefully be included in the conversation. It wasn’t long before there was a lull in the banter so I offered an opinion that was logical and would stimulate further discussion. I said, “Brad Marchand is the best pest because of the strictness of today’s rules and their enforcement…”, and baited the verbal hook with a dramatic pause that was disagreed with immediately by “Vic”, who responded that, “Kenny Linsmen didn’t need to hide behind the


Admission $8

rules to be the better pest”. I knew I was in like Flint. It wasn’t long before there was another pause in the discussion so I skillfully diverted the conversation from hockey to another one of my favorite topics… me. “Hey, fellas my old hernia has been acting up lately… what should I do?”. I got an immediate quizzing on the details of my discomfort and then I got 5 or 6 opinions from the 4 scuttlebutters. Fortunately, they all began to discuss their own hernia experiences (yawn). Again, I knew these were the right locals. Before long my doctor’s name was mentioned with superlatives that did comfort me in my only choice of a local doctor. I began to feel a bit relieved at how four out of four old guys at the coffee row table has had hernia surgery. After HEADING TO shaking their leathery JIM NORTON’S and calloused working man’s hands when I left the group, I knew they had each earned their respective hernia experience…probably by working hard and splitting their guts. Now we can have cof- COFFEE ROW.... WHERE EVERYONE HAS AN OPINION ON SOMETHING... fees and talk about it.

Politics plays big role in Sask. government opposition to carbon tax For almost a year the Saskatchewan government has labelled the federal carbon tax with one term — job killer, job, killer, job killer. This government’s opposition to the carbon tax extended to a court case challenging the federal government’s right to levy a carbon tax, and by Ron Walter a loss at the first court level. The Saskatchewan government’s economic case against the carbon tax is based on a study commissioned by the province and released to the public last June with considerable hullabaloo. That study supported the Saskatchewan claims of carbon tax killing jobs and damaging the economy. The University of Saskatchewan study found the carbon tax will cost the economy $16 billion in the next 10 years. The Saskatchewan Party government had the needed ammunition to tell voters how bad and damaging the federal Liberal government tax will be. Across the province, Saskatchewan government members and Premier Scott Moe successfully sounded the trumpets about the job killing tax.

Voters are already conditioned to hate taxes by five decades of anti-tax promotion from the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation and some business organizations. Convincing the majority of voters about the evils of a carbon tax was easy. Early this month, sudden revelations about the impact of the carbon tax came — revelations quite contrary to the Saskatchewan Party government position on the tax matter. The Saskatchewan government commissioned and received a previous independent study on the carbon tax impact in 2017. That study was never released to the public and would be still buried in government files except for a Freedom of Information request by NDP Opposition Leader Ryan Meili. The first study, the one hidden from the public, did not predict as much damage as the second one that was promoted as the proof of a job killer tax. The first study by Navius Research, a Vancouver company specializing in climate change research, found much less damage from a carbon tax. The hidden study results found the economy would lose $1.2 billion over 10 years to 2030 — less than one-tenth of the damage the second study found. When confronted with the hidden study, Saskatchewan

SCRAPS holding inaugural PETstravaganza event this Saturday By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

The Band City Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society (SCRAPS) is holding an inaugural PETstravaganza event with the goal of sharing love and care for stray animals in Moose Jaw. The gathering takes place on Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds on Thatcher Drive. The event is bringing together about 40 animal welfare groups and vendors that provide services for animals, such as trainers and groomers. There will also be a dog demonstration group that showcases dogs performing tricks. Admission is $5 for individuals and $10 per family. All pets are welcome, but animal owners must sign a waiver on entry. A PETstravaganza event is something that SCRAPS has thought of for several years, explained volunteer Anne Marciszyn. Not only will this event act as a fundraiser, but it also allows the organization to work with other like-minded groups. This event will allow those groups to showcase their goals and how they help animals. SCRAPS is a non-profit organization that relies on donations since it doesn’t receive any governmental funding, she added. However, the group is working on changing that. At the PETstravaganza the radio station will be live on scene, there will be raffles and gift bags will be given out to the first 50 people or families. Marciszyn thanked the community for its support over the years in supporting SCRAPS. “We welcome everyone to come out on Saturday,” she added. “It’s a great way to meet organizations that are helping animals in our community.” The goals of SCRAPS are to reduce the at large feral cat population in Moose Jaw through primarily non-lethal control; to stabilize the feral cat population in the community; and to promote responsible pet ownership and compassion for feral cats in the community.


government spokesmen brushed it off like a married man claiming his unfaithfulness was a one-time thing that didn’t mean anything. Oh, said the spokesmen dismissively, we didn’t like the way they did the study. It sure sounds like the Saskatchewan Party government found the first study didn’t jive with its politics and ordered one from the government-funded university to match the Saskatchewan Party politics. Not only was taxpayer money wasted, hiding the first study and buying a second one smacks of deceit and arrogance. The case of the hidden carbon tax study shows Saskatchewan Party government opposition to carbon tax is based more on politics than on the true consequences of that tax. Is it too much to ask our politicians to do the right thing and avoid trying to hoodwink taxpayers? The strong backlash against the carbon tax is evidence this tax will work. Opposition to the carbon tax recognizes the tax will require more outlay or less use of fossil fuels, and some use of alternatives such as solar power to run the air conditioners on tractors and combines, or more fuel-efficient vehicles.

Crash survivor urges residents to keep STARS in the sky with lottery ticket purchase By TERRY JENSON -

On August 19, 2015, Chelsea Phillips’ life changed forever. After a day of drinking, Phillips and four close friends were involved in a horrific crash later that evening just outside her hometown of Biggar, Saskatchewan. Police investigation revealed the truck had been travelling 180 km/h when it left the road, struck an approach, and rolled numerous times. Two of her friends, including the driver who was impaired, died on the scene and another two were taken by road ambulance to hospital. Phillips, meanwhile, was found unresponsive but clinging to life a football field away from the wreckage and the decision was made by first responders to make the call to STARS – the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service. Standing between several flight paramedics, nurses and pilots – including the two on board the helicopter that night – Phillips told her story at the grand prize show home in Saskatoon during the launch of the 2019 STARS Saskatchewan Lottery on Wednesday, May 15. Phillips was in hospital for four months and underwent 11 surgeries in the weeks that followed the crash. Doctors initially didn’t think she would make it through that first night and, if she did, believed she would never walk or talk again due to the severity of her injuries. But, not only did she survive, she beat the odds. The road to recovery has been long and, to this day,

continues for Phillips. The crash and the years leading up to it have been erased. Gone are memories of her graduation four years previously, the marriage of her older sister, and the birth of her nephew. Now living in Saskatoon while many of her friends are still in Biggar, Phillips’ days consist of happily volunteering at Sherbrooke Community Centre and loves her job helping others. But, while she appears to be a happy, healthy young woman on the outside, she still suffers from the effects of the collision. “I find it annoying that I still have to rely on my mom, my sister and my grandma to get me places,” she added, saying she gets frustrated not being able to live on her own. “I sometimes have difficulties finding the right words to use and I also have trouble paying attention and get distracted easily. I need an agenda and an alarm to remember days.” Phillips’ narrative is a touching one of how STARS saved her life, but there are hundreds of other VIPs – Very Important Patients – who have stories of their own in Saskatchewan. According to Cindy Seidel, Flight Nurse and Director of Provincial Operations for STARS Saskatchewan, the organization has flown 5,500 missions to over 500 communities since its inception in 2012. With helicopters and crews based in Saskatoon and Regina, STARS transports critically or seriously injured patients from scenes and also between hospitals and health centres when deemed necessary. “(Chelsea’s story) hits a little close to home for me as I’m from Biggar as well and Chelsea graduated with my son so this (crash) was certainly devastating for our small community,” Seidel explained afterwards, thanking Phillips for the courage to tell her story. This year’s STARS Lottery features two grand prize show homes – one in Saskatoon’s Greenbryre Estates worth $1.58 million and the other near Regina at Spruce Creek Estates in Pilot Butte with a retail value of $1.57 million. In addition to trips, vehicles and cash, there are 2,004 more prizes to be won including electronics, jewelry, gift cards, and even an opportunity to take a sight-

seeing tour of Saskatchewan inside a STARS helicopter. As of May 15, the lottery was already close to 55 per cent sold out. Tickets are $60 each, two for $100, six for $250 or twelve for $375 and can be purchased in-person at either of the two grand prize show homes, online at, by mail at P.O. Box 1515, Regina, SK S4P 3C2, or by calling 1-844-STARS-SK (1-844782-7775). The early bird deadline for the opportunity to win the Ultimate Adventure Package or $225,000 cash is June 27 while the draw for the 50-50 jackpot, worth up to $875,000, will be made August 1. Tickets for the 5050 are $10 each, five for $25 or fifteen for $50 and the deadline for ticket purchases is July 18. “I’m grateful to be alive, despite my struggles, and am thankful to have a second chance at life because of the quick work and expertise of all the local links in the chain of survival and my STARS flight crew,” Phillips said in her presentation. “I’m so thankful (STARS) was able to help me nearly four years ago. The only way STARS can stay in the sky and help other patients in need is through your support. Please buy your STARS lottery tickets today and help save a life – maybe even the life of someone like me.”

Precious Metals Recycling Roadshow coming to Moose Jaw TC Precious Metals will be in Moose Jaw, making its way through Western Canada. You can bring your gold, silver, coins and Canadian paper money to the Moose Jaw Public Library, June 4th and 5th between 10am and 5pm each day. No appointment is required. Terry Burrill is a precious metals buyer and President of TC Precious Metals headquartered in Airdrie, Alberta, and takes this show out to western Canada. “TC Precious Metals has the unique advantage of dealing direct with a smelter” says Burrill. “This allows us to cut out one or even two middlemen. TC Precious Metals purchases gold and silver from other gold buyers, pawn shops, dentists,

jewellers and jewellery makers as well as from the general public.” In terms of the US dollar, gold and silver prices appear low but the weak Canadian dollar means prices are strong. TC Precious Metals analyzes your gold, silver, coins and paper money while you watch, with the process explained to you in detail. Coins with numismatic (collectable) value are set aside from those with a ‘melt’ value. Silver items such as jewelry and flatware are analyzed for hallmark identification. Items thought to contain gold will also be analyzed for hallmarks, and then confirmed using precise testing that is done while you watch. Then a cash offer is made, and you decide to sell or

not. “If you decide to sell after hearing the quote, great, but it’s also about information” says Burrill. “A lot of times people just need to know a ballpark price of what items are worth. There is no obligation and we don’t pressure anyone into selling.” “Nearly half of the world’s annual gold harvest comes from recycled gold. Energy costs area about $500 to mine a new once of gold where recycled gold is about $10 per once.” A result of this is gold and silver purchased at the shows and later melted goes back into the market with a lower environmental impact. Out of fashion jewelry, single earrings, broken chains, unloved jewelry, charm

bracelets, dental gold, nuggets and fine gold are all accepted. Sterling silver flatware sets. Another valuable item is coin with silver content. Dimes, Quarters, Half Dollars and Dollars from Canada and America can be sorted and the silver content determined in no time at all. People are encouraged to bring in any and all coins for assessment. TC Precious Metals can assess and purchase Canadian and Dominion of Canada paper money. They have extensive experience working with estate, executors, widows and widowers in a respectful and caring manner. No appointment necessary.

Local construction activity increases 50 per cent By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

A 90 per cent increase in the value of single-family construction has driven up Moose Jaw building action. Builders took out permits from city hall for 11 houses worth $3.7 million by the end of April. That compares with six house permits worth $1.95 million last year. Year-over-year, building permit values to the end of April increased 50 per cent to $7.17 million, an increase of almost $2.4 million.

April permit values of $554,000 were just over half of last year’s value with no new houses last month. A major commercial permit issued by city hall last month was $128,000 for a GATX Rail Corp. maintenance building at 2200 Caribou Street West. A $63,700 permit for alterations to row housing was issued to Pioneer Village and a $183,000 permit was issued for alterations at Central Collegiate.

A $25,000 permit for a fitness gym at 244 River Street West was issued. And a $12,000 permit was issued for alterations to the Osaka House restaurant at 471 Main Street North. Ron Walter can be reached at

Dusty Rose Music by the Litzenberger’s Band City Band Derald Busse & Friends Pure Country Jacksonville Musical Friends Just n Tyme Heritage Fiddlers Scott Heatcoat SRW Country Trio The Twilighters (6:30 – 8:00 pm)

This summer marks the 25th anniversary of Concerts in the Park, a beloved tradition of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. Beginning June 5, Wednesday evenings will be the best time to head to the Crescent Park amphitheater to catch some great music. “It has a special place in the hearts of Moose Javians, and (Supplied) not only people in this community, but we see so many tourists that come through, that are visiting our city and they spend that evening with us,” said Kelly McElree, executive director at the Health Foundation. During intermission, volunteers take a voluntary collection through the audience — asking them to dig for some coins, or maybe a bill or two. The funds always go towards aiding patients in the city. To date, the event has raised over $112,000 for the Foundation, which has been put towards pediatrics, the Women’s Health Unit, surgical equipment and chemotherapy, among other things at the local hospital. This year, the Foundation is hoping to raise enough for a new digital mammography unit, to help with early detection of breast cancer. It could be said that the annual musical event is a fundraiser for the Health Foundation’s current project, but McElree wants people to know it’s so much more than that. “Concerts in the Park really is special because we view it, at the Foundation, as saying thank you to our donors,” said McElree. “We can’t say thank you enough to them, and this is a great way of entertaining people through the summer.” “It really is a wonderful way for people to come out, in the summer, take in some great weather and listen to some music by some very talented people that are volunteering their time to entertain the folks of Moose Jaw,” he added. And entertaining it will be, promised McElree. The concerts are scheduled every Wednesday from 7 - 8:30pm, beginning June 5 and ending Aug. 21, and feature a wide range of musical talent: polka, country, rock, even some skilled accordion work. “It’s a kind of eclectic lineup, that really delights the crowd; there’s something new every week,” said McElree. A full schedule of the bands performing can be found on the Health Foundations website, and updates about the performances are always posted on their Facebook page.

Hobbyist creates cribbage boards fashioned after grain elevators Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

For the past 15 years, Neil Puckett has been creating hand-made cribbage boards, with each taking up to 85 hours to create and most looking like a grain elevator. The idea to create cribbage boards came after Puckett and a friend went for coffee to discuss golf. His friend, Winnipeg native Bill Farguson, enjoyed travelling across the country to play golf, as well as enjoying cribbage. This conversation sparked the idea to create a cribbage board that looked like a Saskatchewan road map. He overlaid a map on a board and drilled holes where communities were located. This allowed Farguson to start the game in one community and finish near that same place. Although Puckett said the first board was crudely made, he and his family enjoyed it. Since that first project, he created another crib board with a road map on it, as well as 12 more boards — mostly grain elevators, but also a pig-shaped board. Nothing is written down. It just comes to him, whether the idea will work or not he said. “If I think it does [work], fine and dandy, and if it doesn’t, well, we’ll change it around.” Puckett’s favourite board is one of his most recent, fashioned after a United Grain Growers elevator in Balmoral,

Neil Puckett also created a replica in the 1970s of a Second World War airbase in Dafoe, Sask., which was part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. The base was the No. 5 bombing and gunnery school. This replica can be found at the Western Development Museum. Photo by Jason G. Antonio Man. It was created for Farguson who used it in a tournament in Manitoba. Sadly, Farguson died on April 10th of this year at age 77. “I never dreamed [a board] would ever go to a tournament,” said Puckett. Puckett’s latest creation is a grain elevator on fire, with sound effects to represent a fire truck’s siren. It took him 20 hours alone to get the sound effect to work and to ensure the batteries could be replaced.

“I have to keep designing and thinking. Somehow it all turns out,”

Another unique feature of Puckett’s grain elevator-themed cribbage boards is the identification on the back to represent a particular community’s grain elevator. For example, the board going to Vanguard is identified as a Saskatchewan Wheat Pool elevator, No. 2146, in Bachman, Sask. Puckett uses as many local supplies as he can; this ensures he doesn’t have to wait on a piece before he can finish. “How much do I want {for a board]? You can’t just give it away,” he said. He thinks $25 to $30 is fair price, since he can’t charge minimum wage after working on a board for 60 to 70 hours. Puckett’s woodworking hobby began in 1958 when he became a model railroader. He created miniature buildings to surround the track, which then grew into a bigger hobby of re-creating well-known buildings — such as the Corner Gas gas station — or military bases. He built a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan model base and donated it to the Western Development Museum. “I have to keep designing and thinking. Somehow it all turns out,” he added. “Ideas (can) pop into my head at any time.”

-Neil Puckett

Besides the board, the box in which the board will be shipped also has a firefighter theme to it. The picture on the front of the box is from a fire in Meadow Lake in 1974. Photo by Jason G. Antonio


The concept came to Puckett “out of the clear blue sky;” and took him six weeks — 85 hours in total — to complete. It took him three hours alone to drill the holes since they require precision for the pegs, with each peg having a picture of a fire truck on it. It also took him 15 hours to create a custom-made 1950s vintage box with pictures of past building fires on it. The cribbage board and the box are being sent to a retired firefighter in Vanguard, Sask. “You don’t get skunked in this game; you get burned,” Puckett laughed. Puckett, 73, is also a retired firefighter. He began working as a volunteer at age 14 in Vanguard, before becoming the fire chief in Meadow Lake at age 18. He later worked in The Pas, Man. for the federal government; on reserves teaching fire safety; and then in Moose Jaw. He retired at age 55 after 43 years in the industry.

Walleye Challenge returns to Buffalo Pound Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation is once again inviting fisherman out to the Walleye Challenge, taking place this year with rules night on June 7 and allday fishing on June 8. The one-day fishing tournament is still taking teams, with a few spots left open for fishermen itching to get their hooks in Saskatchewan’s most popular tournament fish. The tournament usually sees about 50 teams launch at Buffalo Pound Lake. MJWF president Todd Smith is looking forward to seeing people come out for this year’s event, as he feels it’s a great tournament to get started with. “It’s a pretty good introductory tournament for people looking to get their feet wet, if you will, for tournament fishing,” said Smith. “It’s a great one-day event that lets them kind of try it out if they’re unsure, and hopefully they go on to fish a lot more.” Walleye is Saskatchewan’s most target-

ed sport fish, said Smith, which is why there are hatcheries across the province supplementing the populations each year — one of which is actually run by

the MJWF at Buffalo Pound Lake. The tournament has weight prizes, paid out to the top ten, as well as a hidden weight prize sponsored by Moose Jaw

RV & Marine: a WC 14 Lund aluminum fishing boat. MJWF is also partnering with Loney’s Point at Buffalo Pound, as the official launch point for the derby. Currently, teams have to register by downloading the forms from the MJWF website and mailing them in, alongside their registration fees and Sask Wildlife membership number, although Smith is looking into changing that up in the future. The Challenge is a live-release tournament, so Smith is looking forward to possibly having the University of Regina fish lab crew out to tag some of the fish caught and hopefully see some tags from last year. “Hopefully, we’ll get some of the tagged fish that have been done in previous years back. We can get some comparative data for us to follow what’s going on with the fisheries,” said Smith.

Tugaske Library given provincial accolade, despite small size Larissa Kurz

Tugaske Library is known as “the little library with the bright yellow door,” but what’s going on inside is much bigger than expected. Despite calling a village of fewer than 100 people home — the second smallest branch in the Palliser Regional Library system — Tugaske Library has won the 2018 Branch of the Year Award. This is the second year in a row that a small town has won the award, as Wood Mountain took the title home last year as the smallest branch in the region. The distinction is one that head librarian Violet Beaudry is proud to advertise, as a ton of work from both the library board and the local community went into keeping their little yellow door open and their programs thriving. In 2016 - 2018, active patronage at Tugaske Library increased by 45% and the num-

All kinds of materials are available: magazines, novels, DVDs, children’s literature, and a whole wall of large print books — which are very popular, says Beaudry.

Head librarian Violet Beaudry is a large part of the reason the Tugaske Library is so busy. ber of programs offered by 350% — with a 1000% attendance increase. Beaudry estimated that last year, a total of around 1,000 volunteer hours were contributed to library programming, and about 450 of those hours came from community members. Though it’s only open three days a week for a few hours, those few hours are always bustling with people stopping in to pick up books or even just see what’s new. It’s really a combination of factors that has made the library so busy. Small upgrades to the building, like replacing the fluorescent lighting and painting the front door yellow, made the space more inviting. Taking input and planning

events to suit the community’s interests got people coming out to spend more time at the library. Beaudry has even approached local artists and asked them to display their work in the library, to create a local connection. She regularly collaborates with all the surrounding towns for projects: Eyebrow, Brownlee, even Central Butte. Murder mystery dinners, weekly gatherings to try out new recipes, nights of paint-

ing with local artists, and even a charity Farmer’s Market: you name it, Tugaske Library is happy to try it out. The $250 in prize money that accompanies the honored title of Branch of the Year is likely to go towards material acquisition, said Beaudry, as the library isn’t just a place for exciting events; they do house books too. The Tugaske Library is open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:30 to 6:30pm, and Thursdays from 9am to 2pm. It is located on 106 Ogema St, but you’ll know it by it’s bright yellow door. The library’s Facebook page is a good way to keep up with what’s going on, or by calling the branch at (306) 759-2215.

The small library is cozy and welcoming, and always busy. 190556G0

Residents cleanup Tatawaw Park Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

It might have been the Victoria Day long weekend, but that didn’t stop members of the South Hill Community Association from spending time cleaning up Tatawaw Park. Twenty people from the association and surrounding neighbourhoods slipped on their gloves and work boots to collect garbage from the pathways and other nooks and crannies. They started near the Seventh Avenue bridge and went into the park, almost to the south end near the main trails. The South Hill Community Association will continue to press people all summer long to carry out what they carry in. Visitors can continue to enjoy a coffee or their lunch in the park, but they should take their refuse with them if they can’t find a garbage can. Residents should also encourage people not to litter if they see them doing so.

Cigarette butts continue to be a huge issue in the community, noticeable wherever people: in parks, on pathways, on the grass. Smokers need to dispose of their butts properly.

Besides Tatawaw Park, there are other areas of the municipality that could use some tender loving care, according to association president Crystal Froese. She has spoken with the parks and recreation

department and pointed out Spring Creek Park off of Simcoe Street could use help. There is also a location behind Sunningdale School that is a “trouble area� since it collects garbage that drifts in. Froese added one of her goals is to have Moose Jaw become one of the cleanest municipalities in Saskatchewan.

for a variety of ailments, the latest fast food offering, not even the opportunity to erase wrinkle lines and make us look 20 years younger. So during commercials we chat, head for a snack, check out the latest e-mail or in Housemate’s case, he browses his favourite sites on his cellphone. On this particular evening, the commercial caught our attention because the background was of a carnival set up at a community fair, a topic near and dear to our hearts. My first impression was that of a promotion for an exhibition coming soon to a town within the viewing area. Mom and son are sitting in a seat of an older-style ride. The attendant has trouble with the safety bar on the ride and is asked by the mother if the ride is safe. The dozy attendant replies that he set up the ride himself the night before and says he thinks he did an OK job. That comment sets off an alarm on the mother’s face and she responds, “just OK?� The son then asks what happens if something goes wrong. “We just move on to the next town,� the carnival worker replies. The script transitions into the message from the technology giant that “just OK is not OK� to AT&T. Yikes. I turned to Housemate in astonishment, that a company

like AT&T would buy into the outdated belief that carnival rides are unsafe, operated by sketchy characters out to swindle the townsfolk before packing up in the dead of the night. Decades ago that might have had some truth, but today’s carnivals are well-run enterprises whose rides must meet stringent standards and rigorous inspections before being allowed to operate. In fact, in most cases, rides are inspected each time they are set up. Certainly, accidents have occurred but driving on a freeway puts one in more direct danger than enjoying a carnival ride. Because ride accidents are rare, more attention is paid to them than to a crash on the highway. As we viewed the commercial again and again, we wondered how soon it would be until someone in the business would launch a protest against the message from AT&T. It didn’t take long before Greg Chiecko, president of the Outdoor Amusement Business Association spoke up on behalf of North American carnival operators, calling the ad “the worst stereotype of an industry.� Fairs were also urged to dispense with AT&T services in protest, noting the message is incorrect that carnival owners are unconcerned with ride safety. It is ironic that the commercial aired just as fair organizers are planning this year’s events, getting set to welcome carnivals that provide the rides that entertain patrons of community exhibitions. In our many years of travelling from fair to fair to view various operations, only once did we see rides that might have been held together with binder twine. That midway was not part of any carnival association and soon lost considerable business. Shame on AT&T for buying into an antiquated stereotype. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Maybe we should be eating better for the sake of our kids

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

We are about 2 months into our oldest son having his learner’s driver’s license and so far, so good. No accidents and very few arguments. I’m sure all parents of drivers have had the occasion to say, “Do as I say, not as I do.” It has happened a few times with my son. Me, “You were supposed to come to a complete stop before you made that turn.” My son, “But you don’t!” Touché. I think having my son in the process of learning how to drive has also made me a better driver. As parents, we always want to set the proper example for our kids, but it’s nearly impossible for the example to be perfect. The first time one of our kids swore, it was with a phrase that was my own “go to” words for when I swear. I wonder where he learned that? Here is a statistic that may make some of you swear: In Canada, 60% of children aged 5-18 are overweight or obese. That is more than half!! Sadly, Saskatchewan is the worst province in the country for childhood obesity. While there does exist a genetic propensity for obesity, genetics cannot be blamed. The obesity gene still has to be expressed through lifestyle factors, like diet and exercise habits.

Is it possible that a large part of why so many of our kids have weight issues is what our kids are seeing, not only in the media, but right at home? Research tells us that parents greatly influence a child’s eating habits right from the time they start eating solid foods. Kids don’t really have a choice with what they eat. For the most, part they eat what we eat (unless there are special circumstance like food allergies, diabetes, celiac or other sensitivities), and just as importantly, they eat HOW we eat. If we have dessert after a meal, they have a dessert after a meal. If we snack in the evening, they snack in the evening. If we drink pop, they drink pop. For some adults, eating during times of stress is common, and that habit often leaks into how our kids deal with stress. Do not underestimate the effect your habits have on your kids, especially with their relationship with food. Exercise habits are no different. If your child sees you exercise regularly, there is a good chance you child will develop these good habits as well. “Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.” -James Baldwin (American author)

Controlling wild pigs requires changes to hunting laws By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Wild pigs have been a concern since some wild boar esAGRIMART caped farms in the 1990s but the problem has exploded EXPRESS in the last few years. A University of Saskatchewan study found that wild pigs have expanded their range from two locations in 2000 to a wide swath of the province by 2017. Wild pigs have invaded the area from south of the boreal forest except for a line from Leader to Weyburn. Some have been seen in the Cypress Hills. Wild pigs pose a danger from carrying diseases like E Coli and possibly African swine fever to crop damage and destruction of wildlife. Saskatchewan harbours 58 per cent of the national population. “The growing wild pig population is not an ecological disaster waiting to happen – it is already happening,” says Ryan Brook, lead researcher on the Canadian Wild Pig Project. “Wild pigs are so widespread that they are a major challenge to control in Canada and eradication is only possible with a comprehensive plan to deal with this highly efficient invasive species. In Saskatchewan they are already posing significant risks to agriculture and livestock production. Our mapping of their expanding territory shows just how quickly they are spreading. This is a rapidly emerging crisis.” The animals are smart and have become hybrids by crossbreeding with wild domestic pigs that escaped. With six piglets a year and no natural predators, population growth is explosive. Control measures are useless unless laws are changed. The wild pigs are nocturnal animals with best hunting at night, but current laws don’t allow night hunting. The pigs are so intelligent that live trapping is ineffective. The older pigs teach the others to avoid live traps. Wild pigs have been seen in this area around Rowletta and the Qu’Appelle River Valley Northern and Central Alberta and southern Manitoba have also been invaded by wild pigs.

East Side Community Assoc. folds due to lack of volunteers, a shift in responsibilities The East Side Community Association has shut down due to a lack of volunteers and because the responsibility for recreational programming has shifted to the municipality. “It wasn’t an easy decision,� said Jenny Gadd, chair-

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express woman of the association. Gadd had volunteered with the association for 20 years. Her father joined the association in the 1980s, while there were also other long-serving members. Recently the goal had been to recruit new volunteers to provide fresh ideas and bring new leadership and for the last couple of years, Gadd was trying to find a replacement for her position. There was no one interested in taking the position of chairperson, so the future of the association was in jeopardy. The other issues with which the association struggled focused on its role in the city and whether it was still responsible for programming. Gadd pointed out that during the 1980s, community associations looked after booking gyms, organizing classes, running registrations and collecting fees. That responsibility shifted back to the City of Moose Jaw in 2007, which means there is less of a role community association can play in programming. If anyone is interested in reviving the East Side Community Association or volunteer, they should call the parks and recreation department at 306-694-4447. Although the municipality now looks after community programming, the association — a registered non-profit — was still able to acquire grant funding for projects. It used the money to improve green spaces, install a basketball court at Bell Park, support outdoor classrooms at schools, sponsor the fall pumpkin festival, and cover Grade 8 graduation windups.

Matthew Gourlie photograph One of the biggest projects the association handled was installing a $120,000 spray pad last year in the East End Park. Just recently, the association used some of its remaining funds to install a new yellow sign there for $3,000. Any money left — which is not much, said Gadd — will be used to sponsor the pumpkin festival, the Grade 8 windups, and to spruce up other green spaces.

Massive survey illustrates consumer concerns with farming in Canada By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express



Knowing what your customers think of you is important when you’re selling a product. One of the most wide-ranging samples of consumer opinion on health concerns in agriculture and food comes from a two-year study of online discussions by consumers, using modern artificial intelligence methods. Prepared for the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity the survey of opinions of over 250,000 Canadians during two years showed Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) topped the list of food concerns

followed by pesticides, hormones and antibiotics. The concern about GMOs is highlighted when compared to how many people actively talked about NAFTA and cannabis during the two-year period ended January 2019. NAFTA drew interest in 10.5 million conversations with eight million talking about cannabis. GMOs, by comparison, were the subject of 2.13 million conversations online. A November 2018 documentary on GMOs spiked conversations from 50,000 a month to 560,000, showing the influence of media exposure. During the two years two million consumers talked about organic foods, 1.08 million discussed pesticides with 953,000 on

hormones and 737,000 on antibiotics. Between 65 and 85 per cent support freeing all food of GMOs with 70 to 75 per cent support for hormone free food. Between 75 and 80 per cent of conversations wanted pesticide-free foods with 80 to 85 per cent support for antibiotic free food. Supporters of GMO free foods say it would be better for health and the environment while opponents say labelling is misleading. Supporters of hormone-free food say Canadian standards for milk and beef are better than in the U.S. while hormone supporters say hormone free is a marketing gimmick. Antibiotic free supporters worry over health benefits from hormones while hor-

mone use supporters suggest meat quality is better if animals are healthy from use of the drugs. Pesticide free support focuses on less risk to health, especially cancer and bee population improvements. Pesticide supporters say invasive plants and bugs compromise agriculture. Farmers are associated most with food concerns: GMOs, 41 per cent; hormones, 59 per cent; antibiotics, 55 per cent; and pesticides, 59 per cent. In GMOs, 26 per cent associate them with government and 22 per cent associate corporations with GMOs. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre holds family day, open house Special event kicks off new season for local wildlife refuge area Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre was a hub of activity during their season-opener family day, but Cricket didn’t seem bothered one bit. A veteran of the Owls on Tour program, the tiny ground-dwelling raptor held court in the centre’s gazebo throughout the day, placidly greeting all comers, young and old, during the Family Day Barbecue and Open House. And like Gale, Cookie and Piper before him, he was a perfect ambassador for his compatriots as onlookers took part in events around him throughout the day. “It’s the start of our 2019 season, so this is a fun family day to start the year in the right fashion,” owl coordinator Lori Johnson said as a steady stream of patrons milled through the gift shop. “We’re always looking to get our information out, and it’s a chance to give back to the community as well as a thank you for their support. It’s kind of one of those special days where you can learn a little bit and have some fun at the same time.” The event featured a pair of bouncy houses, face painting and a giant bubble station along with the barbecue, on top of the centre’s educational fare surrounding the owls and their nearby habitat. The new season sees a slight decrease in the number of owls the centre cares for and watches over, but overall the numbers remain solid. “We did suffer some losses last year, but that’s kind of the name of the game when you’re working with animals,” Johnson said. “Overall, we’ll see some slight increases and slight decreases depending on the year… they are still listed as an endangered species, but we’re not seeing the big decreases like we did in the early 80s and 90s. If we

the number of people we were reaching with our Owls on Tour program and it looks like this year we’re shaping up to beat those numbers already,” Johnson said. “The more people we can reach and tell about burrowing owls, the more likely we’re to help the species survive.” The Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Centre is located on the Exhibition Centre grounds and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily for in-house visitors and tours.

Multicultural Council looking to expand its board Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Multicultural Council is a great way to get involved with newcomer success, and becoming a board member is once again up for grabs. Current board members hosted a recent meet and greet session, to expand the search for new board members and open the doors of the Newcomer Centre to anyone interested. The goal, board member Albulena Morina said, was to get some new faces with new skills involved. “We wanted some diversification, in the aspect of having different individuals from the community involved,” said Morina. “Usually if you have individuals that have joined, then they would have recommendations from their fields. So we thought if we were more diversified, that would be something that would be a better attribution.” The board for the MJMC is strictly volunteer and isn’t involved with the everyday operations of the many programs the Multicultural Council oversees. Rather, the board oversees policies, budget decisions,

current members at the session agreed that was over-estimating. With meetings once every two months, and a bit of preparation beforehand, being a board member is pretty straightforward. Currently, five members sit on the board, alongside Palmer, but they hope to fill some seats with new members; the limit is 12. Brooke Meili stopped in at the session, interested in applying for a position partially because she has an interest in making Moose Jaw more welcoming and partially because she was encouraged by Morina.

City Hall Council Notes Oldest municipal building receives approval to renovate exterior of building Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Owners of Moose Jaw’s oldest building have received permission to alter the structure’s exterior but will not receive funding through the downtown façade enhancement grant program, since the building is outside the downtown area. The Chinese United Church, located at 303 High Street West, is the oldest recorded building in the community. It was constructed in 1883 and moved in 1884; it was moved three more times before the Free Methodists pur-

chased the building and moved it to its present location. The former church was designated a municipal heritage building in 1984. The church’s architecture features a Gothic vernacular influence, evident through features such as the lancet windows, steeply pitched gable roof, tower, and spire. Businessman Gary Power owns the building, which currently houses several commercial businesses, including Fit 4 Life.

During its most recent regular meeting, city council voted 6-1 to allow the building’s owners to make improvements to the building. These enhancements include new window shutters, flower boxes, front door and concrete parging. The owners will not be compensated, but could re-apply to the program if the boundaries are changed. The estimated cost of all the external façade elements on the building is $8,315; the grant program would provide half of that, or $4,157.50.

Former CPR Station building receives grant funding for exterior renovations Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The former Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) Station is a landmark in downtown Moose Jaw, so city council wants to ensure the building retains its distinctive heritage into the future. The station — located at the south end of Main Street, at 5 Manitoba Street — was completed in 1922. The property features a six-storey clock and a two-storey waiting hall surrounded by single-storey wings attached on three sides. The building is clad with Tyndall stone and red brick. The building was designated a municipal

heritage property in 1999. It currently houses several commercial businesses and is a multi-use building. During its most recent regular meeting, city council voted 6-1 to approve a funding request from the building’s owners to upgrade the exterior, with funding to come from the downtown façade enhancement grant program. The owners of the former train station building want to paint and straighten the front sign; paint the alcove and window frames above the liquor store; and change the lights above the liquor store to match

the rest of the building. The total cost is $3,830, with the grant program providing $1,915 in funding. Heritage value A city administration report explains that there is a heritage value with the former CPR Station since it is tied to the community’s history. Canadian Pacific Railway chose Moose Jaw in 1882 as a division point due to its central location and availability of water. The municipality then developed into a pre-eminent railway centre in the future province of Saskatchewan.

A bronze plaque honouring the war efforts of company employees and exterior reliefs of a ship, locomotive and a crest for the CPR speak to that company’s association with the building and important economic role. Montreal architect Hugh G. Jones designed the building, which exhibits elements of Italiante architecture. The building is also in a prominent location at the end point of Moose Jaw’s Main Street, while it has a picturesque look that illustrates the various functions of each section of the building.

Council gives discretionary approval to two commercial projects Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express A parking lot and a contractor’s office will soon pop up on Athabasca Street East and Lancaster Road, respectively, after city council approved the owners’ discretionary use applications. Gold Key Investments asked that it be allowed to create a parking lot at 402 Athabasca Street East. Parking areas are a discretionary use in the R4 core mixed residential district in which this lot exists; therefore council permission was required. Arnil Construction asked that it be allowed to use 21 Lancaster Road as a contractors’ office and associated yards. This is a discretionary use in the C3 vehile-oriented commercial district; therefore council permission was required. Council unanimously approved both discretionary use application requests during its most recent regular meet-

ing. Athabasca Street East The property is located on the corner of Fourth Avenue Northeast and Athabasca Street East, according to a city administration report. The property is a single lot measuring 50 feet by 125 feet. The lot was previously occupied by a multiple unit dwelling that was damaged by a fire in 2006. The building was demolished in 2008 and the property has been vacant ever since. Brent Boechler, president of Athabasca Heated Storage, explained to council that the parking lot would address an increase in employment activity at 461 Athabasca Street East. A new company called Nexii is being formed; this company would have a production plant and research and development centre and would have up to 60 employees.

This many employees would put pressure on street parking for existing businesses and residents, said Boechler, so the new parking lot would reduce of the use of parking along the 400 block of that street. Athabasca Heated Storage intends to install 24 parking spots for light vehicles to use. Lancaster Road The property at 21 Lancaster Road measure 148 feet by 278 feet. This lot has not been previously developed. A city administration report explained that most light industrial uses, such as contractor’s offices and yards, are discretionary in this district to prevent potential nuisance to surrounding commercial users. However, since this area already has offices and other light industrial users, it is unlikely this project would negatively affect them.

City hall confirms council’s letter to province about 2020 election was sent Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Coun. Brian Swanson was concerned that a letter from city council to the provincial government about the 2020 municipal election had not been sent, but city administration confirmed the correspondence was delivered. In his report presented during the recent regular council meeting, Myron Gulka-Tiechko, city clerk and city solicitor, explained a copy of the letter dated Dec. 19, 2018 was sent from his office to MLA Warren Kaeding, the minister of Government Relations.

The letter reads, “This letter is to inform you that Moose Jaw city council adopted the following resolution at the regular meeting of city council held on Nov. 26, 2018: ‘That the City of Moose Jaw communicate to the provincial government our opposition to the recently announced proposed changes to the date of municipal elections.’” Dog park maintenance City administration also responded to an inquiry from Coun. Heather Eby, who asked on April 8 whether the municipal-

ity had a dog park maintenance policy and if there would be a spring cleanup. In a report, Derek Blais, director of parks and recreation, explained the department relies on public compliance with The Dog Bylaw, which puts the onus on pet owners to clean up after their dogs. Sec. 17 (1) and (2) of the bylaw states, “If a dog defecates on any public or private property other than the property of its owner, the owner or keeper shall cause such defecation to be removed immediately. Where, under subsection (1)

of this section, the owner of the dog fails to remove such defecation immediately, the owner shall be in violation of this bylaw.” To assist with public compliance and awareness, the dog park rules reflect the bylaw and are installed at the entrance to both dog parks, said Blais. The municipality also installs doggy bag stations at the dog parks and throughout the municipal trail systems.

Mosaic Place to receive six new AED machines Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

People who visit Mosaic Place for a hockey game, concert or convention can be confident that modern automated external defibrillators (AED) will be on hand should they suffer a heart attack. City council approved the purchase of six new AEDs for Mosaic Place during its May 13 regular meeting. Four FRX AEDs — with eight-year warranties, new batteries, and new pads — will cost $1,800 each, or $7,200 in total. Two other An example of the model that city FRX AEDs with similar specifications will council will purchase for Mosaic cost $1,700 each, or $3,400 in total. With Place. Photo courtesy GST included, the entire purchase comes to $11,766. After a warranty rebate is factored in, however, the total cost will be $7,416. Funding for these six AEDs would come from the accumulated depreciation of $10,457 of previous AED units, according to an administrative report. Mosaic Place has six AEDs that are near the end of their 10-year lifespan. Two of the six units fall under a recall notice, while the remainder still qualify for a warranty rebate.

City hall to work with school divisions, police on school bus safety campaign Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Although in-city school buses don’t use stop arms when dropping off students, city council still wants motorists to drive safely around the big yellow vehicles. To achieve that goal, council has authorized city administration to co-ordinate a community campaign with the Moose Jaw Police Service, the municipality itself,

Prairie South School Division, Holy Trinity Catholic School Division, and Cornerstone School that focuses on safety around school buses. This motion came from the transportation services advisory committee’s most recent meeting.

The City of Moose Jaw could acquire an additional $3 million with the sale of investment bonds and interest generated from reinvesting that money into other portfolios.

RM of Rodgers No. 133


Public notice is hereby given that the Council of the RM of Rodgers No. 133 intends to adopt a bylaw under The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to amend Bylaw No. 4-2015, known as the Zoning Bylaw.


The proposed Zoning Bylaw amendment will allow Council to exempt barbed wire fences from the required setbacks.


The proposed amendments are general text amendments. They will affect lands and future developments in the Agricultural District.


The reason for the amendment is to exempt barbed wire fences from the required setbacks.


Any person may inspect the bylaws at the RM of Rodgers No. 133 office located in The Regional Municipal Plaza at #4-1410 Caribou St. W in Moose Jaw, SK, during regular office hours. Copies of the bylaw will be made available.


Council will hold a public hearing for the Zoning Bylaw amendment on June 13th, 2019 at 9:30 am in Board Room #2 in The Regional Municipal Plaza located at 1410 Caribou St. W in Moose Jaw, SK. The purpose of the public hearing is to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaw. Council will also consider written comments received at the hearing (or delivered to the undersigned at the municipal office before the hearing). Issued at the RM of Rodgers No. 133 on May 29th, 2019.

Charlene Loos, Administrator

councillors were in favour, as well as the Mayor. Background The municipality has more than $64.4 million in its bond portfolio for long-term reserves, with annual yields from 2.50 per cent to 6.09 per cent. The investments have maturity dates that start this year and go until 2024. Reinvesting bonds that are near maturity would generate about $2.432 million for the municipality that would disappear if held to maturity, according to a city administration report. By reinvesting that money into term deposits, it would generate another $653,000 in interest, for a total of $3.085 million. The investment committee and investment manager identified two opportunities to gain additional interest revenue if some of the current bonds were redeemed and reinvested into GICs, the report said. One opportunity would allow the municipality to retain

an existing premium over the current face value of the bonds. The coupon bonds have a market value that is higher than their maturity value and the municipality can secure that increased value or price premium by selling the bonds before they mature. The other opportunity would allow the municipality to increase the yield to maturity, which is the total return provided by a bond held to maturity. The city maintains high quality investments that pay a higher interest rate until their maturity through this reinvestment into GICs. Two variables could affect how much the municipality earns from this move, the report said. One is the trade date, which would affect the bid price of each bond and would be different than the market value when the bonds were first reviewed. Changes to interest rates could also affect the GIC rates and net gain on yield to maturity.

City Hall Council Notes

Mayor berates Councillor for perpetuating statistics Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A discussion about the City of Moose Jaw’s first quarter financial report turned into a spat between Mayor Fraser Tolmie and Coun. Brian Swanson, with the mayor accusing Swanson of not supporting economic development in the community. Swanson’s initial comments during the May 13 regular meeting focused on property tax arrears and property tax receivables. He pointed out that while much can change by the end of the year, the report’s graphs worried him. As of March 31, the municipality faced property tax arrears — composed to tax liens and arrears payment plans — of $2,447,633. In comparison, that figure was $2,195,054 during the first quarter of last year and $1,765,651 two years ago. Swanson pointed out there was a significant reduction in payment plans for tax arrears in this year’s first quarter compared to last year — to $1,084,406 from $1,395,050. He also pointed out there was an increase of 70 per cent in prop-

erty tax liens during that same time — to $1,363,227 from $800,004. Regarding payment plans, property owners concentrate on paying tax arrears, explained finance director Brian Acker. City hall then has to establish new payment plans with customers in arrears, which is why there is such a shift from one year to the next. Swanson was also worried about property tax receivables. The first-quarter graphs have shown increases since 2014, with that year seeing just over $1 million. Five years later, that had increased to $2,447,633. Swanson thought it was “pretty thin gruel” when one looks at the “statistical reality” of the numbers that could overwhelm them. “But I think we have to realize the property tax burden on this community is not being met,” he said. “There will be a day of reckoning on that.” The mayor took issue with Swanson’s

Mayor Fraser Tolmie comments, saying Swanson could either continue to perpetuate those statistics, or he could instead help approve the largest land deal in Moose Jaw history. This would create jobs and spread the tax base between businesses and residents. However, Tolmie noted Swanson has never put forward a plan to deal with that tax gap. “I think, personally, you want to keep the people of Moose Jaw oppressed,” Tolmie

said, “because you don’t vote in favour of an opportunity that’s right before you.” Tolmie wondered what Swanson’s plan was to change that. The mayor noted council’s plan is to create economic growth for the community. “I guess Mayor Tolmie thinks it’s within his fiefdom to chastise me,” Swanson said. Swanson noted he did produce several ideas during budget discussions to deal with this issue. What he is doing is pointing out the statistical reality that council is ignoring. These numbers will create serious implications for the municipality. Mayor Tolmie continued his agitation towards Councillor Swanson by exclaiming, “You don’t have a business plan. This council has one…” thundered Tolmie, before deputy mayor, Coun. Chris Warren, interjected on a point of order. Council then unanimously approved the first quarter financial report.

Two capital projects could be delayed due to scheduling problems Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express The majority of municipal capital projects are projected to be completed on time, according to a city administration report, but two projects have been singled out as being potentially at risk. Structure upgrades to First Avenue southeast and phase 2 of the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant transmission line project have been singled out as being at risk to not meet the scheduled completion dates, the report says. The First Avenue southeast project has a budget of $1.3 million; $10,368 has been spent so far. The report notes the project is pending since another $150,000 is required. The report — presented during the recent regular city council meeting as part of the first quarter financial summary — does not list a completion date for this project. The transmission line project has a budget of more

Moose Jaw’s Curry latest inductee into Sask Sports Hall of Fame Former basketball standout played internationally in early 1970s Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

One of the most accomplished basketball players in Moose Jaw’s history will soon be a member of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame Marg Sihvon – who as Marg Curry was a standout in the sport throughout the 1960s and early 70s – was revealed as one of eight inductees during a special ceremony at the Hall of Fame in Regina recently, joining Chris Biegler (Regina, basketball), Wendel Clark (Kelvington, hockey), Jacki Nichol (Saskatoon, softball), Kelly Parker (Saskatoon, soccer) and Colleen Sostorics (Kennedy, hockey). Joining them in the builder category are Bill Kinash (Regina, cycling) and Clarence Campbell (Fleming, hockey) as the 2019 inductees. Sihvon’s success in the sport began in 1960 when, as a member of Central Collegiate Cyclone, she won three straight city championships – and in the process was named Moose Jaw’s athlete of the year in 1961 and won the Central major athlete award in 1963. That led her to the University of Saskatchewan Huskiettes, where her basketball career really took off as the U of S won back-to-back WCIAA championships in 1964-65 before finishing second at the Canadian women’s basketball championship twice in 1967-68. Curry was named to the All-Star team both years. It was in her fourth year with the Huskiettes that the Canadian National Women’s Basketball team came calling for the first time, and in 1967 she took the court with the bronze-medal winning Team Canada squad at the 1967 Pan American Games in Winnipeg. Curry would eventually become Captain Canada, carrying the ‘C’ for the team during a tour of Cuba in 1969 before suiting up for the 1971 world basketball championship in Brazil and Pan American Games in Colombia. Curry’s final tour of duty with Team Canada took place in 1972 with tours to Italy and China. From there, it was into the high school coaching ranks in Swift Current, where Sihvon once again found plenty of success, winning provincial titles in 1974 and ’75 to go along with a third title in 1977 as part of

an eight-year run. Most recently, Sihvon coached at Medicine Hat College from 1980-84, where her teams won ACAC titles in 1982 and ’83 to go along with bronze medals in each of those years. The Saskatchewan Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place on Saturday, Sept. 28 in the Convention Hall at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina. Tickets are $100 and include a $25 charitable tax receipt.

Warriors’ Almeida named CHL’s most sportsmanlike player Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Warriors forward Justin Almeida earned a reputation as a class act both on and off the ice during his time with the team – and now he has the Canadian Hockey League hardware to prove it. Almeida, who just completed his 19-year-old season, won the Western Hockey League’s most sportsmanlike player award last month and on Saturday afternoon claimed the CHL’s Bumper to Bumper Sportsman of the Year award at the CHL awards ceremony in Halifax. “It’s definitely a honour when you win your league, you’re very happy and then when you go up against other leagues and they choose you, it’s a big honour and it’s something I’m excited about,” Almeida said in a interview. Almeida scored 33 goals and 111 points on the season while recording only 14 minutes in penalties. Incredibly, it was the highest penalty minute total of his WHL career after taking no penalties in 2015-16 in 48 games with Prince George, only 10 minutes in 201617 between the Cougars and Warriors and 10 minutes total with the Tribe while playing all 72 games in 2017-18. “I like being on ice as much as I can,” Almeida said when asked about how he maintained such low sinbin

numbers. “I don’t like the feeling of sitting in the box hoping they don’t score on the power play, so any time I can be on the ice I feel like it’s better for my team.” It certainly doesn’t hurt that he produces points at the rate he does, something the Pittsburgh Penguins noticed when they chose him in the 2018 NHL Draft and signed him to a three-year entry-level deal earlier this season. That’s where Almeida’s focus will lie in the coming

months as he prepares for his first post-junior NHL training camp while recovering from the recently completed campaign. “It’s just off-season training right now and getting read for next season,” Almeida said. “I had shoulder surgery awhile back so I’m rehabbing from that and getting back to 100 per cent and looking forward to next year.” Also nominated for the award were Nick Suzuki of the OHL’s Guelph Storm and Peter Abbandonato of the QMJHL’s Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. Warriors forward Brayden Tracey – who played on the CHL’s highest scoring line alongside Almeida and Tristin Langan – was nominated for the Wawanesa rookie of the year award but lost out to Quinton Byfield of the Subury Wolves. Jordan Spence of the QMJHL Moncton Wildcats was the other nominee. Rimouski’s Alex Lafreniere was named the Sportsnet player of the year, Spokane’s Ty Smith defenceman of the year, Prince Albert’s Ian Scott goaltender of the year, Rouyn-Noranda’s Mario Pouliot coach of the year, Everett’s Dustin Wolf scholastic player of the year, Vancouver’s Bowen Byram the top prospect and Rimouski’s Charle-Edouard D’Astous humanitarian of the year.

Midget Mustangs post shutout win over Thrashers Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Mustangs in the South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League Midget division had little difficulty with the last-place Weyburn Thrashers in league action at Mosaic Place on May 23rd, building a 3-0 lead in the first period and never looking back on their way to an 8-0 win. Even with that number of goals, the score was remarkably flattering to the Thrashers, if only for a look at the

shot clock. Moose Jaw 97- Weyburn 5 As in three short of 100 shots for the game on Weyburn goaltender Ty Petersen. While holding the Thrashers to less than a half dozen scoring opportunities at the other end. The reason why was obvious while watching the

game as the Mustangs were able to effortlessly move the ball while also dominating loose balls right from the opening face-off. It all made for an easy night for Mac Simpson and Bryden Kerr in the Moose Jaw goal, with plenty of opportunity to watch what was taking place at the other end of the floor. “That was a pretty good game, there were lots of shots on goal and we had a good motion offence. It was probably one of the best games I’ve seen us play,” Simpson said. “We had good defence, our offensive play was great, it was a really good game for us. Things were still fairly close when the shot clock rolled over to 70 midway through the second period – the Mustangs only held a 3-0 lead at that point, an edge that can be erased in no time at all in lacrosse. “This goalie was outstanding, he was so good,” Simpson said with a tone of awe. “We need to get him moving more and we could probably score some more, but a win’s a win.” Atley Calvert led the offence with two goals and three assists to go along with a pair of markers and an assist each from Caelan Fitzpatrick and Kael Nichols. Ethan Johnson and Ethan Peters had their other goals. The win saw the Mustangs improve to 5-0 on the season, having scored 50 goals while giving up only seven. Next action for Moose Jaw is Tuesday, May 28 when they take on the Regina Snipers (8 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Bantam Mustangs win in Regina Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Rowan Calvert scored three goals and added an assist as the Moose Jaw Mustangs took a 6-2 win over the Regina Raiders in South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League Bantam division action recently.

Eric Woodley added a pair of goals and Colton Ebbett picked up a single marker for Moose Jaw, who found themselves in a scoreless draw after the first and leading 3-0 through two. Carter Michaluk had

two assists. Walker Williams and Luke Andrews were in goal. The Mustangs improved to 5-0 in league action with the win, having scored 47

goals while giving up only 13. They return to action Tuesday, May 28 when they host Regina 2 (6:30 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Pee Wee Mustangs win, lose against Swift Current Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Pee Wee Mustangs 2 scored a pair of goals in the final four minutes to pull out a 7-6 victory at the Kinsmen Sportsplex against the Swift Current Rampage, improving to 2-2-1 on the season and knocking Swift Current to 4-1-1. The two teams went into the final frame tied 4-4, with Brodyn Pladson scoring a pair of goals for the Mustangs to go along with single markers from Austin Smith and Ryder Gilroy. Shane Cornelson had two goals for Swift Current heading into the third, Hudson Hayden and Brady Simpson their other goals. The back-and-forth third period saw Daxer Schroeder score early in the period to put the Rampage ahead 5-4 before Pladson scored his third of the game to tie

things with 7:53 to play. Cornelson then finished off his hat trick only 1:13 later to give Swift Current a 6-5 lead, setting the stage for the Mustangs’ late-game heroics. Pladson kicked off the rally with the game-tying goal with 3:29 remaining and 1:19 later Gilroy scored his second to put Moose Jaw ahead 7-6 and set the stage for their narrow victory. Scoring information was unavailable from the first game. The Pee Wee Mustangs 1 don’t play again until June 8 when they travel to Estevan; the Pee Wee 2 Mustangs are back in action Wednesday, May 29 when they host Regina (7 p.m., Kinsmen Sportsplex).

Trio of records fall at city championship track and field meet The signs had been there all season for Central’s Akoul Riak leading up to the Moose Jaw section track and field championships. Not only was she crossing the line in her middle distance races seconds ahead of her nearest competition, her times were falling lower and lower with each meet. Even her seed time heading into last Wednesday’s meet at Gutheridge Field was nearly a full second better than the current record, set way back when Riak’s parents were youngsters. It came with little surprise; the Grade 9 competitor set a new record-breaking time in the midget girls 400 metres, crossing the line in 1:02.25 to break the record of 1:02.38 set in 1983 by Riverview’s K. Longmuir. Riak wasn’t that far off of another record, as she ran the 800 metres in 2:25.14,

She also had her eyes on the discus record of 31.15 held by Vanier’s Caitlyn Folk from 2006, but was only able to hit 25.89 metres. One of the newer events on the local track and field scene also saw a record broken, with Ryann Handley of Vanier setting a new score of 2098 points, exactly 100 points better than the old record set by Vanier’s Katrina Avery in 2016.

He continued his running career in 1986, collected an impressive number of titles, and remains very involved in the south Saskatchewan running scene to this day — his whole life story emulates the message, “never give up.” Traveling with the SSHF trailer has offered Jaleta the opportunity to share his advice with students across Saskatchewan. “What we hope they take is that life has never been easy, and you have to work, have discipline, commitment. All of those things don’t just show up, you have to work for them,” said Jaleta, of the presentation’s message.

Ted Jaleta (R) with a pair of students following his presentation.

Ted addressed all the students about his struggle, and what never giving up means to him. “They can have anything they want; if they make up their mind, they can achieve it,” he added. He hopes that the students take his message and pursue the things they want in life, even if it becomes difficult. Jaleta hopes to inspire them with his story, as well as the stories of other famous athletes featured on the trailer’s walls. It was hard to decide what to include in the trailer, according to education coordinator Vickie Krauss, but she feels they cover all the highlights: hockey jerseys, Olympic medals, even old Roughrider jerseys from before the iconic green and white colors. The collection is really meant to be inspiring, for kids to see the great accomplishments of people who come from places just like their hometowns.

Moose Jaw Canoe and Kayak Club kicks off new season Waters of Wakamow Valley a popular place for local paddlers Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The glass-like water, nature all around you and simply beautiful environment makes Wakamow Valley an enjoyable location to kayak, whether it’s a solo trip or a family-wide excursion. The Moose Jaw Canoe and Kayak Club hopes more people will take the opportunity to find that out for themselves in the

near future after officially opening for the season. “We accept memberships through the entire year, but this is a chance for our members to get together and officially get out on the water, as well as welcome brandnew members,” said club president Kevin Pilsworth as a steady run of patrons made

their way to the docks and took advantage of the near perfect conditions to take to the water.” The club membership currently floats around 50 to 150 members, ranging in age and experience from young families just taking up the sport to seniors who have been canoeing and kayaking the river for years. Then there’s their work with community groups and schools, with coach Mark Gilliland and other instructors

conducting clinics and demonstrations for various organizations throughout the warm-weather months. The club is located in the Wakamow Valley campground across the road from the speedskating oval and across the river from the Burger Cabin. They have a selection of canoes and kayaks for members to use, depending on availability. A major part of their ongoing success is the continued support and sponsorship from ACT/UCT, whose support enables the club to offer their services to anyone interested in trying out the sport – regardless of background or financial position. “They help us out an incredible amount, and it’s important for us because we will not allow financial hardship to be a barrier to our club,” Pilsworth said. “They’re our partners and they’re committed to make sure that the youth of Moose Jaw have a chance to come out and experience something like this.” Prospective members or anyone looking for more information can check out their Moose Jaw Canoe and Kayak Club Facebook page https://www.facebook. president with some of the canoes and com/MJCKC/, find the necessary forms at kayaks available in the club’s storage, or simply drop in at the facility. storage facility in Wakamow Valley.

Paddlers return from a jaunt around the Moose Jaw River and Plaxton’s Lake during the Moose Jaw Canoe and Kayak Club open house on Sunday.

5th Annual Transplant Trot sees great support Larissa Kurz

Organizer Roxanna Gadd-Frey proudly thanked all of the volunteers and the supporters of this year’s Transplant Trot charity walk, in a quick address to the crowd before the event headed outside to get walking. Gadd-Frey estimated around 150 walkers and runners took part this year, with a few last minute registrants this morning filling out the group. The Transplant Trot is organized by Gadd-Frey and her family and friends,

and she credits their help in the continued success of the fundraiser. “We were online the other day and found out that Calgary canceled theirs because they don’t have enough volunteers,” said Gadd-Frey. “My friends and my family are the ones who do this and the people come out to the run. There’s not tons of us, but we get it done, and Moose jaw supports us.” The event is meant to bring awareness about the importance of organ donation,

The 5km group started off with some untameable enthusiasm leading the pack.

About 150 walkers and runners of all ages gathered at Sunningdale Elementary for the fundraiser. but also to celebrate successful transplants and to remember those who didn’t see success. Saskatchewan has the lowest number of registered organ donors in the country, and many are hoping that statistic will improve with the possible creation of an online organ donor registry in the province. The main message that Gadd-Frey hopes people remember is that registering to be a donor is great, but it’s just as important to make sure your family knows too. Because of the registry, Gadd-Frey and her group are expanding their fundraising this year, to keep the discussion fresh and in people’s minds. They’re currently

planning a golf tournament in August and a dance for sometime in February.

This year, a children’s carnival was set up after the walk in celebration of 5 consecutive years of the fundraiser.

Wildlife Rehabilitation Society offers knowledge on how to care for wild animals Larissa Kurz

Spring is usually a busy time for the birds and the bunnies, and people are likely to come across baby animals in their yard in need of help. There are a few important things to know before intervening with the cycle of nature, to make sure no harm is done. The number one rule in rescuing distressed wild animals: make sure they are truly in distress. The number two rule is to be careful when approaching a wild animal, for both their safety and yours. And, of course, the unofficial third rule is to leave the baby bunnies where you found them. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan has a plethora of information regarding what to do when you come across a distressed animal, whether it be a wobbly fawn or a grounded hawk. Injured or sick animals should also be reported as soon

as possible, and people are encouraged to avoid approaching the animal without seeking advice first. Rehabilitation centers are manned by volunteers who have

extensive knowledge of how to care for wild animals properly and prepare them to be released successfully back into their natural habitat. The local non-profit is the Wild & Cared Free Rehabilitation Centre, who can be contacted through Facebook with concerns about injured or abandoned animals. Emergency situations can warrant a phone call to the Moose Jaw Animal Clinic during regular hours, at (306) 692-3622. Volunteers care for some of the animals surrendered to them and will sometimes refer concerned individuals to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan, which has a hotline available at (306) 242-7177 for people to call. The WRSOS website also offers information regarding what to do about many wild animal situations.

Premier Moe’s sudden nuclear module idea masks hidden agenda The Legislative session just ended was acrimonious on both sides. The NDP Opposition pounded away at lack of education funding and large classroom sizes while the Saskatchewan Party government somewhat incorrectly portrayed Opposition leader Ryan Meili as a carbon tax supporter. On the last day of the session, Premier Scott Moe threw out the possibility of a mini-nuclear plant in Estevan to compensate for closure of coal mines and some coalfired power plant units by 2030. Nuclear power is about the lowest greenhouse gas emitter of all, even though it produces expensive energy. Moe’s plan comes with some mighty huge obstacles in technology and public acceptance. Public acceptance of nuclear power technology is uncertain. Fears about safety if there is an accident or the ultimate safe storage of spent nuclear material radiate more strongly than the sun’s rays on a scorcher of a day. Massive public protests are almost guaranteed if this process is pursued. The mini-nuclear modules are still under development and by no means proven. This nuclear module, like the expensive not totally effective carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) project, could easily become a burden on the taxpayer/power users. Locating a nuclear module near the United States border will require extensive and lengthy international consultations — even delaying lawsuits. Even without the international complexity, plant approval and design could take eight to 10 years before start of construction. Yet the province has 11 years be-

fore coal-fired energy is eliminated. None of this makes sense except as a political strategy. Moe presumably knows what a hot button subject he raised with the nuclear option and likely has no intention to build one of these plants. The possibility of a modular nuclear plant in Estevan is nothing more than a smoke screen. Once the futility of building a module is exposed, once the high cost to the energy users is exposed, once the public fear of nuclear energy is fully exposed, the premier will present his real desire — CCS technology to save jobs in Estevan and Coronach. Given the public opposition and time issues, the case will be laid out for the costly CCS process.



The pitch for CCS technology will involve the Made-in-Saskatchewan angle as the technology was developed by local universities. Clearly the premier expects people to support the CCS technology when nuclear is the alternative option. While the debate rages, the NDP will experience some splits over green energy and nuclear technology. Shrill NDP opponents of nuclear will polarize voters fearing the far left. That is how Scott Moe will save coal-fired power plants in Saskatchewan. Ron Walter can be reached at

Morning tai chi in the park meant for everyone Larissa Kurz

If you’ve walked past the Public Library on a recent Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday morning, you likely noticed a group of people gathered on the front lawn, moving gracefully together to calming traditional music. It’s as relaxing as it looks. Between the quiet music, the calm movements and the chirp of nature, these drop-in tai chi classes are perfect for releasing stress. In partnership with the Public library, the Moose Jaw Chinese Association Inc. has been offering tai chi from 9:30 - 11am throughout the month of May, meeting three times a week. The mornings are entirely free and welcome to everyone and anyone. Because it is a low impact form of exercise, tai chi is actually great for all ages, as the movements are easy on the joints and muscles. Katherine Liu leads the group through

The Thursday morning group stayed in pose long enough for a photo.

some beginner movements, featuring a series of slow, focused movements accompanied by deep breathing meant to create a form of meditation through movement.

It’s very good for one’s health, which is one reason the Chinese Association chose this particular martial art form to offer. Tai chi can help reduce stress, improve balance, and even lower

blood pressure. It’s also a fun way to spend a morning in the park, enjoying the weather and seeing other people. Participants are warned to wear comfortable clothing if they plan on taking part. Otherwise, there are no requirements to join in: no registration, no equipment, and no commitment to stay for the full two hours. Saturdays are the most popular mornings, the group said, and since they gather outside in the grass, there’s always room for more interest. Tai Chi in the Park will continue to run through until the end of the month, with morning sessions on May 25, 28, and 30. Further dates in June and July are in the works, and when they are finalized, they can be found on the Public Library’s list of events on their website.

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Little Things I’ve been reading a book written by Melissa Michaels called “Dwelling: Simple Ways to Nourish Your Home, Body & Soul.” Melissa encourages her readers to purposely pursue well-being and wellness in our homes and within our bodies. She suggests it will bring a sense of peace, comfort and belonging to your home and help a person to be healthier and happier. What I’ve observed from this inspiring book is that the quality of our life is equal to the appreciation of the little things. It is also about being consistent in small ways which will add up to big results. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes,” once said, “It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” Meredith Allady suggests, “...there are an enormous number of very pleasant things that happen to us throughout the day, that we accept as being nothing out of the common way, and thus do not regard: not realizing that the very fact of their being so ‘common’ is in itself a blessing of the very highest magnitude!” I’m convinced that if we would learn to appreciate the “common”, our lives would be richer, deeper and fuller. We have so much to be thankful for yet we tend to take the common things in life for granted; sights, sounds, smells, feels and tastes. The chatter of birds in the morning, the golden glow of the sunrise, the freshness after a rain, the brush of a lover’s hand or the mouth-watering deliciousness of home grown raspberries and ice cream can all be missed if one is too busy, too distracted or too selfish. We also have the power to improve or inspire our lives by taking small steps. Consistent small steps towards a goal eventually lead to the goal realized. There are so many ways this can be incorporated into our lives such as working out, writing a book or renovating a house. Relationships benefit from the little things as well. A pat on the back after a meal, opening the door for a spouse, an “I love you”, thinking ahead to what would make things easier for a family member or a co-worker, bringing a flower or a doughnut home or to work, a word or note of appreciation or an act of service are all ways that can build stronger, more meaningful relationships. A little bit of time and effort also makes a big difference. Byron Roman, a young man from Arizona, decided to clean up an area that was covered in litter, taking a ”before” and “after” picture with all his garbage bags in front of the finished result. The #trashtagchallenge has since gone worldwide. Many people have got on board to make a difference in their area, one piece of litter at a time. The Word of God encourages us to not look down on the little: “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin...” It also warns of the dangers of ignoring the little things in our marriages: “Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!” We can take Luke 16:10 to heart... “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” Let’s purpose to take notice of the “little” things in our lives and we will begin to see big results. Scripture references: Zechariah 4:10, Song of Solomon 2:15
