Mac the Moose sheds his first set of antlers Larissa Kurz





Mac the Moose underwent his “antler-ectomy” on June 5, shedding the antlers of his youth to make room for a new adult set — although, much like the adolescent moose of the wild, Mac’s going to have to wait a while before those new antlers come in. Tourism Moose Jaw executive director Jacki L’Heureux-Mason hopes that Mac is alright spending the summer sans antlers, to give Team Mac a chance to really get his new set put together properly. “We want to give Rion [White], at Orion Taxidermy, enough time to work with the 3D rendering artists, graphic designers, from Sask Polytech,” said L-Heurerux-Mason. Rion White from Orion Taxidermy and Brysen Bert from Steady Metalworks were the two lucky enough to saw away at Mac’s antlers, cutting through layers of cement, scrap metal, rebar, and meshing. It’s a title that no one else can claim to have, which the two acknowledged when they stopped to take a selfie with the second antler, dangling from a crane arm. “Everybody said, ‘do they know what they’re doing?’ I said, ‘well, they’re professionals, but the moose ‘antler-ectomy’ class was full today, so there’s just no guidelines,’” said L’Heureux-Mason. “They did just a great job, going blindly, really.” If the plan stays on track, Mac should get his new antlers put on by mid-September. This means there will be a few months this summer to get photos of Mac with no antlers at all — an exclusive opportunity that may never come again. The old antlers aren’t up for grabs; Mac’s sheds are set to be mounted and displayed, as a nod to the way that this predicament brought the community together. “It became very obvious to us early on that we wanted to commemorate this community gathering,” said L’Heureux-Mason.

Mac will only be antler-less for a few months, so now’s the time for some unique photos with the famous moose.

“We’re going to have to have information on everybody who participated in this, either in spirit with the estate or with their physical capabilities.” After 35 years standing guard of the city with his “baby antlers,” L’Heureux-Mason hopes to see Mac spend another 35 years doing the same with his “adult antlers.” “It’s hard not to feel incredibly emotional about today,” said L’Heureux-Mason. “It’s been a short journey really, but it’s been an intense one. This whole ride has been just wild.”

Listening To Our Seniors

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

Abraham Lincoln said that “No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.� To all those who generously fill the role of father in someone’s life, you are to be commended; and Happy Father’s Day. As a child, I was always taught to respect my elders. In my adult years, I continue to have a tremendous respect for those in our community who have much more wisdom and life experience than I. I have been hearing the concerns of seniors, and those who are worried for the needs of seniors, in recent weeks. Our community showed tremendous support when our two local seniors associations presented their funding concerns to Moose Jaw City Council recently. Staying socially and physically active are the best ways to enhance good health, especially in the later years of life.

Our senior centres are busy places, an indication that our local seniors are very aware of the importance of staying active. The number of people who came to City Hall when representatives spoke to city council shows that the people of Moose Jaw also appreciate the need to provide programming and suitable social facilities for our older citizens. The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to improving the health and well-being of seniors. While the previous Saskatchewan government closed 1200 longterm care beds, our government has opened 15 new longterm care facilities. Budget 2019-20 will replace the Northlands Pioneers Lodge in Meadow Lake, fulfilling the commitments our government made to replace longterm care centres across the province. The budget also provides $1.1 million, an increase of more than $660,000, to the Alzheimer Society for the First Link program. First Link assists people who are newly diagnosed with dementia get the help they need as soon as possible. The Personal Care Home Benefit helps seniors with the cost of living in a licensed personal care home. The maximum benefit is now $2,000, up $200 from when it was originally introduced by our government in 2012. After 16 years of no increases under the previous government, monthly benefits provided through the Seniors Income Plan have tripled since 2008. Under the Seniors’

Drug Plan, eligible seniors pay only $25 per approved prescription. To help seniors stay active, Saskatchewan residents who are 65 years of age or older, or are turning 65 years of age anytime during the year, are eligible for a free annual provincial park vehicle entry permit, for a vehicle registered in their name. Seniors 65 and older who produce proof of age and Saskatchewan residency do not require an angling license. A very informative booklet, Programs and Services of Interest to Seniors, outlines services available in Saskatchewan. One can be picked up from our office at 326 High St. West, or can be viewed online at saskatchewan. ca/residents/family-and-social-support/seniors-services/ programs-and-services-of-interest-to-seniors. In spite of the additional supports our government has added, I understand that our seniors’ organizations and some of our seniors are struggling. I will continue to listen to their concerns and advocate for the needs of seniors in our community. They are deserving of our respect and consideration for all they have contributed to our province. Please contact our office to share your thoughts, or for assistance in accessing senior services. We are at 326 High St. West, 306-692-8884, or email at

Dietitian with Moose Jaw roots honoured with prestigious award Larissa Kurz Dr. Laurie Wadsworth grew up in Moose Jaw, spent her high school years at Central Collegiate, and continued her education at the University of Saskatchewan and University of Manitoba. Now, after an impressive career in dietetics and nutrition, Wadsworth is being recognized with the highest honor the Dietitians of Canada board could bestow: the Ryley Jeffs Memorial Lecture Award. The award is named after two founding members of the Dietitians of Canada,

Where Friends Send Friends!

Kathleen Jeffs and Violet Ryley, who were pioneers for the profession in its infancy. Recipients are chosen based on three criteria — pioneering, innovation, and visionary — that exemplify the spirit of both Ryley and Jeffs. “To receive the award that was named for them, it’s a little overwhelming, in a good way. I feel very privileged,� said Wadsworth. Wadsworth certainly exemplifies these criteria; she was a pioneer with the research methods and practices she used,


in a time when hardly any researchers were doing so in her field. During her time in the public health sector in Saskatchewan, she worked on a number of innovative communication programs, such as workshops for heart health, a monthly cable show in Swift Current, and interactive grocery store tours to help people understand nutrition while they shopped for their food. And as for being a visionary, Wadsworth worked on various committees and boards within the Dietitians of Canada. She served a year as the Chair of the Board of Directors — during which, federal legislation demanded a rewrite of the organization’s bylaws, which Wadsworth took on with an open mind. “I think that’s the way I’ve tried to address things throughout my career, is that if an opportunity presents itself, it might be scary and it may be irritating because it’s not what you planned. . . but as you get into it, just approach it with a positive feel,� said Wadsworth. “You’re going to learn from it and to grow from it.� Wadsworth is pleased and humbled to be this year’s recipient of the award, as she has looked up to both Ryley and Jeffs throughout her career. Wadsworth has been a professor at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia for the last 20 years,

and she finds it just as rewarding as any other part of her career. The Ryley Jeffs Memorial Lecture Award waspresented to Wadsworth on June 7, at the Dietitians of Canada annual conference in Ottawa, ON. “I’m pleased that folks at home will be able to read about this award and celebrate with me since so many of them supported me along the career journey,� she said, in an email with the Moose Jaw Express.

Velvet Salon merges with Bella Wellness for a new future

Larissa Kurz Owner Tahnie Macdiarmid is sad to see her salon on Main St. close and to leave her iconic marquee behind, but she is looking forward to a new future in partnership with another salon in the city. The decision to close her doors was one that Macdiarmid made for personal reasons. Business ownership is a busy endeavor, and she was looking to cut back and spend more time with her husband and two kids. She noted that owning a business involves a lot of risk, and while she was ready to step back a little, she wasn’t quite willing to give up the profession completely. “I think that I’ve been ready for this for a while, just to kind of step back and just do my own thing,� said Macdiarmid. “My clients, they all know kind of what I’ve been going through, with the change and they all are completely on board.� Macdiarmid is still offering her usual beauty expertise at the new salon — and is already booked up and busy for the summer. She’s also doing hairstyle examinations for the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade and considering offering some hair styling classes in the future. Macdiarmid and her staff are officially settled into their new spaces at Bella Wellness, now that the moving dust has settled, and are looking forward to the new partnerA retro shot of Tahnie Macdiarmid, who opened ship with Bella’s owner, Michelle Seida-Dodd. “I’ve known Michelle pretty much my whole life. . .

“Manly, yes, …. but I like it too!” Do you remember the commercial advertising Irish Spring soap? The word “manly” can conjure up a number of images, a guy with bulging muscles or someone flaunting their machoism… Maybe the heavily scented Irish Spring soap brings out the man in you? You probably smell pretty good but who are you? Joan Ritchie Different strokes for different EDITOR folks; manliness has different connotations to different people, but if you’re a man and comfortable in your own skin, you’re my kind of man. Apparently, there are some ageless characteristics that distinguish manliness, although some of the ideals of manhood have varied across cultures and time. A definition was forged through scholarly readings with Aristotle setting out a code of ethics for men to live by, whereas he believed man’s purpose was to take rational action led by rational thought, leading to excellence in every aspect. Then there were the Romans who believed manliness meant living a life of virtue. In all of this, the virtues of manliness are said to be displayed in courage, loyalty, personal responsibility, integrity, resiliency and sacrifice. And of course, I had to check out the urban dictionary for some interesting and amusing definitions for a “Manly Man”. * “A man who is comfortable in his own skin but doesn’t use skin care products. Someone who drives a vehicle with “muscle” But knows where to draw the line. i.e.- you won’t need a ladder to get in. A man who loves women, but not all at the same time. Protective but not overly aggressive. Prefers big dogs over cats. Masculine sans machoism. Hetero sexual, period. Soap? Irish Spring, of course.” *“A male human of exceptional strength, fortitude, brilliance, and overall awesomeness.” *“A man who can make a decision without resorting to an internet poll to help him decide. *“A manly man is a man who is overall awesome at everything he does. He never gives up and always pushes others to the max. A manly man is very good for comfort and also good in bed; he loves to go out and adventure, but he also likes to sit home and talk to people about his/their problems. He is very handsome, and everyone loves him.” *“He is a manly man because he knows how to treat a woman.” I love that men are proud yet vulnerable, stoic and courageous, firm but gentle, kind and compassionate, both serious and funny…Their virtues are immeasurable. These are the men in my life: my husband, father, sons, grandsons, brother, brothers-in-law, uncles and friends. Happy Father’s Day to all the manly men out there who have fathered offspring, and to the rest, celebrate your manliness!

Rwanda mission trip on the horizon for local family Larissa Kurz

The Jacques family is in the final stages of preparing for their move to Rwanda, to establish a ministry and lend their hands to supporting the post-genocidal country. Cherrie Jacques and her husband, Peter, traveled to Rwanda about a year ago and were awed by the struggles they saw; they decided that they wanted to do what they could to help. “It’s a pretty intense environment because of the genocide, so there’s a lot of help that’s needed there, and it’s such a unique country,” said Cherri Jacques. “They lost over a million people, so they’re still fighting so hard to get back from that.” Upon returning home, the Jacques family began organizing a more permanent mission trip; with the help of Victory Church, they created the Victory for Rwanda ministry and located a place in the Sheli cell — an area about 30 minutes southwest of the capital city of Kigali — to begin their efforts. Currently, they plan to focus on support in several areas, beginning with education. A recent survey in the country found that there are 160,000 children between the ages of six and 14 who aren’t going to school, which is a roadblock in moving forward out of poverty. Secondly, they are looking to provide vocational training for adults, to help them develop skills to provide for their families. The third component is providing counseling to help deal with the trauma of the genocide. “Almost everyone in the entire country is either struggling with shame and guilt for participating in the genocide, or it’s the flip side where they’re victims of the genocide,” said Jacques. They’d like to organize mission teams to come help set up these necessary supports, with the ultimate goal of having the local population maintain them for themselves. From there, Jacques said that they would consider expanding the ministry’s structure to other parts of the country, if possible. They are expecting to spend about three to five years there, given that they receive support from back home.

The peace sign is a symbol of victory, which is what prompted the Jacques family to name their ministry Victory for Rwanda. (supplied) “We’re not fully funded at all. We’re just really trusting,” said Jacques. “We’re always looking for people to come and help, or to help sponsor us.” The family is set to leave on June 17, and Jacques emphasized that they are still in need of some support to help them on their way — both in funding and in manpower. “One of our goals, too, is to set it up so that teams can come, be involved, and really make a difference — right from our little town of Moose Jaw,” said Jacques, adding that the big support they are looking for is people willing to teach English. Victory for Rwanda has a Facebook page, which Jacques said would be a good way to keep up with their efforts. Those interested in donating can do so through Victory Church, who can offer charitable receipts. Interest in being involved with the ministry can also be directed to Victory Church, who can help organize support trips, or to Victory for Rwanda by emailing Jacques at “If anyone feels in their heart to get involved and to help, be bold and courageous and step out and do it,” urged Jacques. “It’s life-changing, just to know that so little effort can impact lives in such a great way.”

Scandinavian Club looking for more members to join and help celebrate their cultures Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

If your ethnic background is Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Icelandic or Danish, then the Moose Jaw Scandinavian Club wants you to sign up and help celebrate these cultures. The club was formed on Nov. 1, 1974 and had 163 members on the rolls. However, that number began to decline during the next 45 years and as of May 23, had dropped to 24 members. This includes 11 active members, four life members over the age of 90, and nine honorary life members, plus 15 students. “We want people to know we’re still here,” said club president Sylvia Stephanson, who joined the club in 1989. The Scandinavian Club joined the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council in 1974 and was involved with Motif from 1974 until 2011. The club has also been involved with other events over the years, including cultural evenings, anniversaries, bake sales, singing, dancing, and annual Christmas parties. The club has also celebrated the Consti-

anniversary in December — gathered on May 17 to celebrate Norway Day, or Constitution Day as it’s known. There were 11 members who attended the sup-

per, while many cultural artifacts of the five countries were also on display. The youngest member at the supper was club member Barbara Grand’s daughter, Meagan, 26, while the oldest member was Herman Simrose, who is more than 90 years old. Stephanson and Grand agreed that fellowship is one of the main reasons why they enjoy the group. The club meets once a month for supper and a meeting; in June it will celebrate the birthdays of three of the five countries by holding one get-together. Grand is married to a Norwegian, while her two children are half Norwegian and “a little bit” of Scottish, Irish and German. Stephanson is half Icelandic and half Norwegian. If anyone is interested in joining the Scandinavian Club, call Sylvia Stephanson at 306-692-2626. Membership is $10 and you receive an ID card as part of the deal.

SCRAPS calendar wants to see your pet at their cutest Larissa Kurz

Band City SCRAPS has brought back their calendar fundraiser for its second year, and they’re looking for proud pet owners to submit some pictures of their favorite pets. Although the calendar is fundraising in support of community cats, Ann Marciszyn, coordinator at SCRAPS, isn’t looking just for cute cat photos; she wants pets of all shapes, sizes, and levels of furriness to have their moment of fame. “Whether it’s a horse, or a cat, or a dog, or a fish, or a bird, or a snake — whatever it is, submit it to our calendar,” said Marciszyn. “We’re creating basically a collage of different pets [and] we’re just hoping to make it bigger and better.” “There’s a lot of opportunity for taking cute photos, and now people can take the time to take a look through their collections of different pictures and pick out some cute ones,” she added. The calendar is meant to highlight all the beloved companions who make their owners happier, as well as to

remind people about responsible pet ownership. “We just like to join with other organizations or other individuals to kind of share our passions about the animals in our lives and the things that make us laugh about them,” said Marciszyn. “And we just kind of try and encourage responsible

ownership and just to really encourage people to realize that animals are a lifetime commitment,” she added, alongside a reminder that all pets should be spayed or neutered, not just cats. SCRAPS is taking photo submissions by email, at, with a deadline of June 28. And because the calendar is a fundraiser, photo submissions are tagged with a $10 price — $20 if you’d like a calendar once they print. Marciszyn also noted that they are making room in the calendar for businesses to purchase a business cardsized ad, for $25 — $35 with a calendar included. The expected date for the 2020 calendars to be printed and available is in the fall; the details of when and where people can purchase the sure-to-be-adorable calendars will be announced at a later date. For now, just flip through the best — or funniest — photos of your beloved pets and consider supporting your local SCRAPS, while also letting everyone know just how great your pets are.

Whether it was Moose Jaw’s own Alana Karn performing a series of piano performances in the senior division at Mae Wilson Theatre on Saturday afternoon, or Jerry Hu’s award-winning rendition of McIntyre’s Butterflies and Bobcats during the same competition, or Lindsay Holizki’s Pièce en mi bémol mineur on trombone to close out the senior brass portion at St. Andrew’s Church, there was little question the kids seriously came to play. “We had a representative from SaskTel join us, and in his words, he was blown away by the calibre of music he heard,” sad SMGA executive director Carol Donhauser. “So that’s something to say about how hard these students and teachers and parents work; it takes a village to get the children to where they are today. We’re very proud of them all.” The event featured competitors in dif-

On the line was the pride of knowing you were the best in the province in your chosen field of music, as well as scholarship money. “We give out around $30,000 in scholarships; that gives them a chance to work

on their studies, which is always one of our major goals,” Donhauser said. “We work hard to get donors and we’re really grateful for their donations and how much they mean to the kids.” Provincials conclude a busy music festival season, of which 2019 marked an incredible 110 years of competition. Performances started in March with the 47 district festivals, with the first weekend in June acting as the annual date for provincials.

So it gives them some of their values moving forward and learning life skills.” The event could also act as the first step in a career in music, ranging from becoming a music teacher, professional performer or accompanist, any number of fields that require someone who can perform on stage. In fact, some of the older students already find themselves regularly playing with professional orchestras. The event concludes the competitive season for all division except the national-level classes, the winners of which advance to the national championships in Saskatoon later this year.

Saskatoon’s Jerry Hu put together a stunning performance of Butterflies and Bobcats by David. L. McIntyre during the senior piano competition.

Lloydminster’s Denae Bottorff performs Supremacy of Right, Grand March by Herbert L. Clarke during the senior brass competition.

It’s all part of enabling the talented musicians to have a chance to develop and grow in their skills and confidence. “It sets the stage for their future,” Donhauser explained. “It builds character; it gives them work ethic in the sense they have to work hard and study hard.

Loss of longstanding organizations could be sign of the times Several long-lived social features in Moose Jaw face an uncertain future, or none at all. The Y has announced closure of its main building in Crescent Park and the gym in the Co-op Marketplace while the Regina Y will take over the 250 child care spaces run by the Moose Jaw Y. Both local seniors’ organizations face uncertain futures. The Moose Jaw Seniors’ Association at Timothy Eaton Centre is running out of reserves to finance ongoing deficits. Cosmo Senior Centre is in better financial shape but by Ron Walter The would have difficulty coping with a sudden large unexpected expense. The local Royal Canadian Legion branch posts losses as an aging membership diminishes. Some observes might consider difficulties by these volunteer groups as mismanagement by continuing to provide the same services while losing money. All of these groups have tried cutting costs, or increasing fees, with no success. Loss of community wellness and health programs from the Y creates a gap in the city as would loss of recreational, health programs and social gathering opportunities by seniors. Funding from the city or the province appears a non-starter. The province has no spare cash and the governing philosophy generally opposes grants from government to private organizations. The city, which 30 years ago had an annual budget around $400,000 for local organizations, has no extra cash. In the case of the two seniors’ groups, if there is no amalgamation, city council will likely wash its hands of the matter. One can try and fault these organizations for not attracting more new members. The Legion Dominion Command shot its new member hopes in the foot years ago when agreeing to new veterans’ pension benefits plan. The Y and both seniors’ groups have faced intense competition for members’ time. Once the premier gym in Moose Jaw, the Y’s near monopoly role has been usurped by numerous privately-owned gyms and fitness centres with loss of revenues to sustain youth and wellness programs. Seniors are not lining up to join either organization in this city. The new growing generation of seniors is more active and seeks different styles of recreation and relaxation than the card games, dancing, pool and floor shuffleboard mainly offered by these two groups. Witness the popularity of pickle ball games in attracting new people. Many of the seniors in these two organizations moved to Moose Jaw from out of town and found the organizations a great way to meet people and become involved in the community. That inflow of new residents has slowed as rural population decline. The right thing for government to do in the name of wellness and reducing future government health and policing costs would be financial support – a highly unlikely outcome. The requests for assistance will be swept under the carpet, termed a social shift in needs in this digital age. The community will be the loser. Ron Walter can be reached at

See Through My Eyes Derrick Mahoney

Spring is here; I can feel it in the air. As I sit and relax, in my old lawn chair. The birds are singing, in the trees so high. And there’s nothing but blue, to fill the sky. The buds are coming out now, all over the trees And soon they’ll grown into, lovely green leaves. The bees are busy buzzing, around and around Looking for those flowers, that will spring from the ground. And there goes a squirrel, darting across the street. As the sun starts beaming, I welcome its gentle heat. Yes, spring is here; I can feel it in the air. I just wish more people, would take the time to care. About nature and all that it brings And be thankful and glad that we have these things.

Because the way we are going, we won’t have them long. Too many people treat nature so wrong. Building here, smokestacks there Soon there’ll be more smog, than there is air. We’re cleaning our woodlands for bricks and concrete Forcing the wildlife to turn and retreat. Into an area that is much too small Which will never house or feed them all Most of us care a lot But some companies never give it a thought. They’ve never taken the time, to stop and look around Or just sit back and enjoy nature’s sounds. If all those people could see through my eyes Maybe they’d all stop and realize That all that beauty we see out there Will all be gone if we don’t start to care.

Ask Your Mirror

Those stupid smart thingys are taking over the world, one gizmo at a time. I am too smart to embrace the trend to have a gadget perform simple tasks for me…or am I? I forget what television program I was sleeping through but I emerged from my “meditation” to view a commercial for a voice activated bathroom mirror that could control the entire bathroom and its fixtures. I was not sure if I had seen the advertisement or if my by Dale “bushy” Bush brilliant imagination had conjured it up in my mind, so asked my bride, “Did you see that?”. She simply snored her “meditation” response so I knew she did not see the commercial. The commercial parodied the “Evil Queen” Disney character from Snow White and she commanded her mirror to perform various duties in her bathroom beginning with turning on the lights and ending with setting the shower temperature. A magic mirror in the lavatory has been dreamt about for centuries; I can understand how some folks could be so very busy that they need help turning on the tap in the shower while they are plucking out their eyebrows. The magic mirror cannot pluck eyebrows …yet! Of course I dialed up the interwwweb and asked “him” about all these voice activated gadgets that folks are using in their hectic lives. Even with my brilliant imagination, I could not envision what “he” showed me. As you are plucking your eyebrows or squeezing zits? You can ask your mirror to warm your toilet seat to whatever temperature you desire, butt I would be concerned about getting Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures confused and ending up with burnt buttocks. It would give new meaning to that old Johnny Cash song verse, and you better hope you don’t fall down that “Burning ring of fire” because it will...burn, burn, burn. Once you have agreed with your mirror on how warm/cool your toilet seat will be, you can continue your day in ultimate comfort and if you are stuck for a crossword answer you can even ask your mirror for clues. Once “that” paper work is completed, you will need to continue the session ending paper work on you own, butt before that, you can ask your mirror to activate your bidet, again at whatever temperature is comfortable. The information available did not mention, if you could personalize the bidet’s pressure, butt that is just my brilliant imagination at work. Gently please mirror! The rest of this job will be in your own hands because there is no apparatus that will wipe where the sun don’t shine…yet! After instructing your mirror to flush the toilet, you can have it run your shower at whatever temperature you desire. If you want to have a dip instead, your faithful mirror will tell your tub at what depth and temperature you need your tub’s settings to be so you can be pampered. Mirror… please activate the Jacuzzi jets to “Vigorous” …aaaaaaah. When your dip is over, you will have to pull the plug yourself, but your bath towels can be pre-warmed by asking your devoted mirror for that service. At what price does this convenience come? It is expensive, but I wonder about the unseen costs of having your mirror (and the interwwweb) know some very personal details about my life. I may have mentioned my brilliant imagination and I can only visualize the advertisements I will be subjected to once the interwwweb knows at what temperature I like my bidet to…you know…bidet. Ads like, “At Bidets-R-Us we guarantee satisfaction…in the end!”. Just let your brilliant imagination go wild and I am sure your smart mirror will be able to make your dreams come true or it will know someone who can.

Net farm income takes steep decline in 2018 By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Declining commodity prices in 2018 cut farm profits in Canada by two-thirds, according to the annual Statistics Canada report. Farm net income fell to $3.03 billion last year from 8.19 billion in 2017, even though farm cash receipts were the highest in five years. Canadian farmers averaged just under one per cent return on investment which is little better than bank savings interest rates. In 2017, farmers averaged 2.2 per cent return on investment, which is on par

with the last five years. What makes the farm income picture even bleaker: almost every dollar of net income last year was derived from selling off inventory of grain from the previous harvest. In 2016 and 2017, farmers increased inventories by more than $1 billion each year. Farm cash receipts have increased steadily from $52.25 billion in 2014 to $62.23 billion last year. Capital investment in farming increased from $306.3 billion in 2014 to $343.8 billion last year. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Pride Week wrapped up a week-long of activities with a parade, day of fun in the sun Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

On June 1st, the Moose Jaw Pride Parade hit Main Street to finish off a full week of activities focused around Moose Jaw Pride Week. Members of the local LGBTQ community were joined by friends, supporters and allies for an entertaining kick-off to a busy day of activities. The parade was followed by a concert in Crescent Park featuring Rosie and The Riveters before an after-party featuring Coco Montrese from RuPaul's Drag Race at Cosmo Centre closed out the evening.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Mother Nature not big on housekeeping With three flower baskets hanging on the fence, some flowers re-potted into the ground, potatoes and tomatoes planted, rhubarb almost ready for a pie and dandelions spreading their fuzzy love, spring has arrived but will soon be gone. However, if one hurries, there Joyce Walter is a lot of living to be enjoyed For Moose Jaw Express before the calendar welcomes summer and the amount of daylight hours starts declining. In other words, as much time as possible should be spent outdoors, enjoying nature and possibly exposing those white limbs to a bit of sun, hopeful for a tan before winter arrives. Housemate, in order to access the lawnmower, kindly brought out some of the limited amount of lawn furniture that has survived our lack of attention. Looking at the chairs proved to me that Mother Nature would not win a prize for her housekeeping chores. I volunteered

DOG WASH AMENITIES INCLUDE: Towel service Shampoo included Elevated tubs with easy access steps Professional high-velocity dryers Aprons to keep you dry A treat for good behaviour

to eventually remove the cobwebs and dirt marring the surface of the chairs that Housemate had received from friends for his 50th birthday. I did not say when I would undertake the cleaning but seeing Housemate’s jeans covered in debris was the jolt I needed. And besides, one day last week was almost perfect for being outdoors if one could ignore the gusty wind billowing through the yard. Out I went, rolls of towels in hand thinking a bit of heavy-duty dusting would do the trick. Nope. A jet stream of water was called for and I turned on the outdoor connection and misted myself in the face when the hose turned over unexpectedly. No one but the birds heard my exclamations. Several bursts of a high-pressure water stream did the trick and I rubbed and scrubbed to remove grit and grime, at least the parts that might stick to an unsuspecting derriere planted in the chairs. Housemate showed up when the work was finished, but he did bring cold drinks and we sat there enjoying the scenery out our back gate, with the white feral cat glaring at us through the fence before heading back to its home under the garage with the collapsing roof.

We listened to the birds, the sound of traffic on neighbouring streets, a siren signaling some kind of distress, wind whistling through the leaves, a woof from a dog, laughter of children in the nearby school yard. My book called for me to get it from indoors and so I spent a couple more hours outdoors, basking in nature. The robins came closer and closer to check out the human in their environment. When I whistled, they looked around and warbled in response. Closer and closer and closer they hopped until an ugly, menacing crow swooped in and sent them fleeing for sanctuary. When the wind got up it managed to spring free some bits and pieces from the overhead trees, some green caterpillar-like insects being among the bits and pieces to land on the interloper. Then the sparrows landed in the branches directly above, my head being a worthy target for whatever they might have to discharge. At that point I figured the message had passed from bird to bird of the perfect landing spot below and I gathered my empty glass and book and headed indoors. Next time I venture out perhaps an umbrella might be the answer to protect myself from the natural droppings of our feathered friends while we share the joys of nature.

Postcards honour D-Day deceased Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw soldiers Roy Peebles Sr., William Gordon Williams and John Hilliard Noel Butler stormed Juno Beach on June 6, 1944, with 14,000 other Canadians as they began to liberate Western Europe from Nazi Germany, but all three men would be dead within a matter of days. Williams, 23, a sergeant, was killed before he made it off the beach; Peebles, 22, a rifleman, died one day after landing on the beach, on June 7; Butler, 35, a rifleman, survived the landing but died two days later, on June 8. All three fought with the Regina Rifle Regiment, which was one of six units to land in the first wave. In total, 359 Canadian soldiers were killed during the first five days — from June 6 to 10 — of what would become the Battle of Normandy, while 715 would be wounded or captured. Peebles Sr., Williams and Butler are buried in Beny-surMer Canadian War Cemetery, located 3.5 kilometres south of the village of Courseulles. Seventy-five years since invasion June 6, 2019, marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Part of an overall plan called Operation Overlord, more than 156,000 Allied soldiers — Canadian, British and American — landed on a 75-kilometre stretch of heavily-defended beach on the northern coast of France. By the end of D-Day, the Canadians had advanced the furthest inland, and then fought off repeated German counterattacks during the next three days. To honour the Canadians killed on the beach or days later, along with this important milestone in Canadian history, the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-ser-Mer, Normandy, France is sending out personalized postcards to hundreds of homes across Canada linked to the soldiers who died. The postcards include the name, rank and age of the soldier linked to each address. John Hilliard Noel Butler, 1065 Willow Avenue Born on Oct. 9, 1908, in Moose Jaw, Butler was married to Olive Butler and the son of William Hilliard and Elizabeth Butler, according to his attestation paper. He was a truck driver by trade, while he was affiliated with the Anglican Church. Butler enlisted in the military on June 18, 1940. Neither Butler’s home in Moose Jaw nor the actual house number exist anymore. Two small buildings that were on the property were torn down so one large home could be built.

Photo courtesy Juno Beach Centre Brad Rose and his wife bought the property and the house at 1069 Willow Avenue five years ago, after moving from Moosomin. He knew about the two older structures but doesn’t know what they looked like. The postcard campaign is an interesting way to reach out and focus on guys who used to live on these properties, Rose said. It’s a good way to make people aware of the soldiers’ sacrifices, while the brevity of the postcard makes it simple and to the point. “(Remembrance is) an important part of our history,” he added. “If people don’t talk about it, there is the fear of it fading away. This helps bring it to light.” William Gordon Williams, 444 Coteau Street West William, better known as Gordon, was born in Moose Jaw on Dec. 5, 1920, to William and Emma Williams, who were married in the United Church in 1910, according to the Juno Beach Centre website. Gordon was their only son, while they also had two older daughters, Mary and Alice. Gordon completed Grade 8 and worked as a labourer for Smith and Parkhill Building Contractors. He enlisted in the military on June 23, 1940, in Moose Jaw at age 19. He trained at the Canadian Signals Training Centre and then joined the Regina Rifle Regiment on Aug. 16, 1941, as a rifleman. He embarked for the United Kingdom from Halifax, N.S. with the 1st Battalion on Aug. 24, 1941. From November 1941 until June 6, 1944, Gordon rose through the ranks to become a sergeant. Gordon was killed in action on Juno Beach on June 6. His mother received a telegraph eight days later informing her that her only son had died in service of his country. For the past 10 years, Gwen Wendzina has lived in the 1917-era house that Williams once occupied. She thought

John Hilliard Noel Butler died on June 8, 1944, two days after landing on Juno Beach during the D-Day invasion. He used to live at 1065 Willow Avenue. Photo courtesy Canadian Fallen Heroes website it was pretty cool that he used to occupy the building. “Before I bought the house, it had an oil-burning furnace in the basement. I wonder if he was the one to put it in?” she said. Sending out postcards is a good idea since it’s a good way to promote the city’s history, Wendzina continued. It’s positive that these young men who died for their country are being recognized. She thinks the campaign should turn out well. Wendzina’s grandfather also served in the Second World War, but that is all she knows about the man. “I think the next generation, they don’t know Canadian history a lot,” Wendzina said. She doubts that her grandchildren know much about the country’s military history; while they understand what Remembrance Day is all about, they don’t know much about any particular battle. Roy Peebles, Sr., 449 Vaughan Street West Peebles Sr., was born on March 16, 1922, to Peter and Margaret Peebles of Moose Jaw. A member of the Anglican Church, Peebles Sr., was a student when he enlisted in the military on May 22, 1941. Peebles Sr., was shipped to Britain with other members of the 1st Battalion and would later marry Lillian Doris of Salford, Lancashire, England. The two would produce a son, Roy Jr., but Peebles Sr. would never have the chance to watch his son grow up as he was killed one day after landing on Juno Beach. Forty years later, CBC TV followed Roy Jr. from England to Regina as he looked for more information about this father. That news story, which aired on June 14, 1994, can be found at The house where Peebles Sr., grew up is now vacant. Lest we forget.

Inaugural MedWAR race an opportunity to test survival skills Larissa Kurz

Four College of Medicine students from the University of Saskatchewan were disgruntled about how far they would have to travel to test their skills in wilderness medicine, so they decided to bring the race to the prairies. The first Medical Wilderness Adventure Race (MedWAR) in western Canada took place at Buffalo Pound on May 25, making it the second location in Canada to host the event — until now, the race had only been in Ontario and across the United States. The race took about four hours to complete, taking the teams through three legs that tested different skills: the first section was mountain biking through the stateof-the-art course, followed by canoeing down Buffalo Pound Lake, and finishing with a running section mixed with orienteering and mock medical emergencies. “We all had an amazing day out there,” said organizer Emilie Wellman. “We’re amazed by how well our participants are able to just crush our course.” There were four medical simulations set up for teams to work through, each with a judge and simulated patient.

New radio station in Assiniboia turning up the country heat Larissa Kurz

The first radio station broadcasting out of Assiniboia is officially on the air, and owner — and current radio personality — Steve Huber is impressed with the response he’s received from the community. Cat Country 98 officially kicked off on May 31st, but Huber has been running some hot tracks since May 15 — beginning with 10,000 songs scheduled in a row. Huber describes the station as “hot country,” a demographic he thought would be well-received in the area. “Country music certainly stood out headand-shoulders above what the other format options were,” said Huber. “It’s what I would call a ‘hot country’ format, so we are a very active modern country station.” And the response he’s gotten has been ecstatic; Huber estimates taking around 200 calls a day in the first week on air and even now, two weeks later, he gets around 60 calls a day from people who are happy to have a station in their area. “The response from the community has been outstanding. The common denominator that keeps coming up is they absolutely love the fact there’s an FM radio station in this area,” said Huber. “And, the other thing too, is it’s just a breath of fresh air to have something that’s new, and a new country format as well.” Cat Country 98 is covering a ton of area: the signal is broadcasting from a tower in Willow Bunch and touching as far south as Montana, as far east as Weyburn, and as far west as Val Marie, as well as up to Moose Jaw and Regina areas. Huber is still working on staffing the station, and he’s adamant about keeping things as local as he can — there are no plans on bringing in staff from far away

Having grown up in Avonlea as a farm boy and spent much of his life in the radio industry, Huber was excited to return to his home turf and get involved with the Saskatchewan radio scene. “It was a great opportunity and I look forward to serving the community for a lot of years to come,” said Huber.

Perfect weather and plenty of fun at Shrine Club Children’s Festival Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Shrine Club’s annual Children’s Festival was held on Saturday, June 1st at the Western Development Museum, as hundreds of youngsters and their families took advantage of the near perfect weather to take in the activities. Activities from kite-building to ambulance tours, to llama petting to face-painting, to bouncy castles and even free admission to the museum, there was plenty to see and do at the event. “It was a really good day, we had a lot of little kids this year, two years old and up,� said event organizer and local Shrine Club member Bill Johnstone. “We had a few bigger kids, but it didn’t matter as long as they had fun and the parents were glad they were there. So that was really good.� One of the most popular stops was the kite-building and flying station, which saw a steady stream youngsters putting together their own airborne devices. “The kite flying was new for us this year and there were lots of kids who learned how to build and fly a kite,� Johnstone said. “They had a lot of fun building them and learning how to get them up in the air.�

That horn and siren coming from the WDM on Saturday? This was why.

The ambulance on site at the Shriner’s Children’s Festival was a popular stop.

Youngsters had a chance to pet bunny rabbits in a special enclosure.

Even Batman got into the kite-making station.

Then there was the petting zoo, with a remarkable menagerie of animals from Old McDale’s Friendly Farm, including the aforementioned llama, as well as a special fenced-in bunny rabbit area that youngers were able to enter to pet the critters. “The petting zoo was a real success; they had a lot of interesting animals there and the kids had a lot of fun there,� Johnstone said.

Healthy livers could be key to delaying dementia, new research suggests Larissa Kurz

In light of prodrome research from Dr. Dayan Goodenowe and his colleague Dr. Mitchel Kling, they are suggesting that good liver health could potentially delay the onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s or other dementia. At the recent Prodrome Health Centre opening, Goodenowe and Kling presented research that could be the key to delaying and even curing degenerative diseases like dementia, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis. Kling’s presentation of his research and trials offered the theory that neurodegenerative disease, like Alzheimer’s, could begin in the liver. If the liver is failing to properly synthesize plasmalogens and other key lipids, or fatty acids like omega-3, the brain is not receiving enough of these chemicals, which has been seen to cause cognitive impairment. Kling concluded by summarizing that low levels of certain plasmalogens could be a factor in an increased likelihood of Alzheimer’s and impaired cognitive functions, essentially noting that a healthy liver could be the key to combating dementia. Goodenowe then presented data from clinical trials, which took a deeper look

Dr. Mitchel Kling, presenting his research on plasmalogens. at the role plasmalogens play in disease management. He concluded that low plasmalogen levels seemed to coincide with higher rates of disease development. In another clinical trial, using mice and monkeys, they found that augmented plasmalogen levels could give protection from specific neurotoxins that cause diseases such as Parkinson’s, MS, or dementia. Increased levels of plasmalogens protected subjects from the neurotoxin when it was administered after the plasmalogen

Hopefully the end of an era is not the end of fitness for some by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor Along with many local citizens, I was saddened to hear that our local chapter of the YMCA will be closing their fitness facilities in Moose Jaw. While I am saddened, I am not surprised. According to their website, the local YMCA has faced financial challenges “due to declining memberships, increasing annual operating expenses, increased capital demands from ageing facilities that needed big investments as well as increased competition.” The latter, “increased competition”, was the reason I was not surprised by the news of impending closure. The good news in Canada is that the fitness industry in our country has enjoyed an average growth of nearly 7 percent in each of the last 5 years. With this growth, there are more and more fitness facilities opening, and

and decreased the subject’s degeneration when the neurotoxin was present before administering the plasmalogens. In summary, Goodenowe and Kling believe that their research could be onto a solution for degenerative diseases, and that solution could stop disease before it manifests. The pair announced they will be beginning a clinical trial with human subjects by the end of 2019, to evaluate the success of the augmented plasmalogen precursor used in previous trials to deal with

with stiffening competition there is always the risk of casualties. When I first moved to Moose Jaw, over 25 years ago, you could count on one hand the number of fitness facilities in our community (and I suspect the YMCA garnered the greatest market share). Now, there are a significant number of options for the fitness consumer; a greater number of facilities all offering a wide range of services. Moose Jaw is following the national trend in fitness industry growth. Over the last 25 years there have been numerous fitness facilities not only opening, but also closing. When hearing of any of those businesses closing, most of us probably didn’t even bat an eye, but upon hearing of the YMCA closing, the public outcry has been deafening. Why the difference? After reading social media response to the news, I was intrigued by how many assumed (wrongly) that the YMCA was a city facility and that the city should not allow this to fail. I think this impression exists widespread due to the long history of community support from which the YMCA benefitted for well over a century. If any sort of taxpayer support existed, it was in the form of low rent offered at city owned infrastructure. But for the most

Parkinson’s or MS. The precursor is being developed as a natural supplement, as it seems the easiest way to get the science to the community. “If you can deliver a highly effective treatment as a natural, safe supplement, that’s far more preferable than giving it as a prescription,” said Goodenowe. “As a natural supplement, it’s available as soon as we bring it out.” The details have yet to be announced, but Goodenowe hopes that positive results from this clinical trial will make Saskatchewan a leader in reducing dementia statistics. “I want Saskatchewan to be the first geographical region in the world to show a decrease in dementia rates,” said Goodenowe. “Right now, dementia rates are going up all around the world, so we have an opportunity to do something really special.” Currently, Saskatchewan has around 13,000 people living with dementia, according to Goodenowe, with around 3,000 new diagnoses each year. He hopes his research will reduce those numbers. “Someone has to be first, and it’s going to be here,” he said, to conclude his presentation.

part, subsidy came from the community in the form of donations, fundraising, volunteerism and endowment. As the end nears, the remaining 2500 members will have to decide on their future fitness. Some will join one of the many private facilities, however there are many that will struggle to find a facility that suits their needs. For many, the YMCA was the place they felt a sense of community, a place that was very affordable, a place where the city’s youth could exercise or just hang out and throw a few baskets. While the private sector will take on many of these displaced members, I worry for those who will no longer have a fitness facility to go to. With the importance of regular exercise in the health of the individual and society as a whole, should governments step forward to subsidize community centred facilities like the YMCA? Since publicly funded Medicare has existed in Canada, the government essentially subsidizes treatment of diabetes, cancer and heart disease. We pay for those who get sick from not exercising, yet we neglect to support fitness programs that are supposed to prevent these costly diseases. Let’s hope there is a future of fitness for all citizens of Moose Jaw.

Summer kids programs at the MJMAG filling up fast

Larissa Kurz The Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery (MJMAG) has an exciting lineup of summer art programs being offered once again this year, and co-ordinator Christy Schweiger said they are already getting tons of interest. Beginning July 2, the MJMAG has programming planned for kids aged three to teens, and everyone in-between. Each topic runs for a week, in either a morning or afternoon program that lasts a few hours. With several different age groups, Schweiger and they are able to offer a number of new and different themes — all things that are hopefully interesting to a variety of kids. The Art Explorers week will encourage kids to look at art from a historical or even archeological twist. Fantasy fans will be happy to hear there’s a number of programs about the fantastical: from fairy tales to Harry Potter to unicorns and other magical creatures. Other topical themes include superheroes, Japanese pop culture, and Disney. Because there are so many programs to plan, the MJMAG has a dedicated summer intern to help facilitate a number of them, alongside some local artists for classes with the older groups. Elizabeth Elich will be teaching print-

Bryson Qwilliams, the student who has joined the art gallery’s team for the summer, promises a week of art-filled activities to really show kids all the different aspects of art. “We’ll be making crafts and art projects with different materials, so clay and papier mâchĂŠ, painting and drawing and all that stuff, and then also we’re going to do activities outside,â€? said Qwilliams. “It’ll

Rain needed desperately to help emerging crops dry pastures By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

With barely any rain for weeks and only a trace or few millimetres when some clouds opened up EXPRESS in scattered places, the entire province is sorely in need of rain for crops. Significant rain is needed to help with crop growth and emergence as well as establishing hay land and pastures, says the ministry of agriculture weekly crop report for the period ended June 3. Emerging crops are patchy and behind in much of the province. Topsoil moisture continues to deteriorate with 32 per cent of crop land moisture adequate, 47 per cent short and 31 per cent very short - about the same as a week before In an area from Avonlea to Weyburn crop land soil moisture is rated 50 per cent short, 50 per cent very short. The southeast region which includes Moose Jaw has 24 per cent adequate, 51 per cent short and 25 per cent very short moisture. In the southwest, moisture on crop land is only 20 per cent adequate with 53 per cent short and 27 per cent very short Provincially pasture and hay land is dry with 78 per cent short or very short of moisture. Southwest pasture and hay land is rated 85 per cent short or very short. Seeding was 99 per cent complete, compared with 93 per cent in the five-year average.

be a full [morning or] afternoon and they get to bring all their crafts home.� Qwilliams and Schweiger also encourage parents to bring their kids to Park Art on July 1, as the MJMAG will have some free kids’ activities going on inside the gallery during the event. “I would say that if parents are kind of wondering more about the program, to check [Park Art] out on July 1st, and that would kind of give a little bit of insight towards what’s happening during the summer programs,� said Qwilliams. There are already weeks that seem to be

popular topics, said Schweiger; the Art in the World of Disney program, as well as the Unicorns & Other Magical Creatures and the Harry Potter programs, are filling up quickly. “I think some people are wanting to get their kids in right away, but the people that are not quite thinking of summer yet, they may have to pick a second choice,� said Schweiger. “If people are specific in what programming they want, they will want to maybe get on the ball and give us a call.� Class space is limited, and clearly filling up fast, so parents are encouraged to call and get their names on the list; registration for any program has to be in at least 10 days before the class starts. The cost of each program varies, depending on the number of hours involved, but it includes all materials needed for the week. Registration for all the summer programming happens at the Museum & Art Gallery, at the front desk from 12 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday through Sunday, or by calling (306) 692-4471. More information about the programming and the cost is listed on the MAG’s website or by giving them a call at the number listed above.

From The Kitchen

R h u b a r b te n a c i o u s i n s u r v i v i n g w i nte r ’s f re eze By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

That first picking of the season is a tart but tasty moment. It is seldom that the rhubarb plant does not survive whatever form of winter that nature provides. It seems relentless in facing a new spring and if tended properly through summer and fall, will delight rhubarb lovers with several rounds of new fruit — even though it is actually a vegetable that becomes a fruit when tucked between layers of pastry or hidden under a crumbled sugar and flour topping. This week’s rhubarb recipes come from A World of Baking Cookbook, slightly modified to personal taste.

Sprinkle lightly with more sugar. Bake at 425 degrees F for 40-50 minutes or until juice is bubbly and crust is golden. Variations: Make a rhubarb-strawberry filling by using 2 cups rhubarb and 2 cups fresh strawberries. Make a rhubarb-pineapple pie by using 3 cups rhubarb and 1 cup drained, crushed or chunk pineapple. Make a rhubarb-orange filling by using 3 cups rhubarb and an 11 oz. can mandarin orange slices, drained. To make a rhubarb custard pie, use only 2 tbsps. flour and add 3 large beaten eggs to the filling.



Rhubarb Pie pastry for 2-crust, 9 inch pie 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/4 cup flour 1 tsp. grated orange rind 4 cups rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces 2 tbsps. butter Combine sugar, flour and orange rind. Stir through the rhubarb. Turn into the pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with butter. Arrange top crust over filling and flute and seal edges. Cut vents in the top.

Rhubarb Rolls Biscuit Dough: 2 cups sifted flour 1 tbsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 1/3 cup butter 2 large eggs 1/2 cup milk Filling: 2 cups diced rhubarb

1 1/2 cups sugar 6 tbsps. butter, melted 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. grated orange rind 1/4 cup butter, melted 1 cup brown sugar Combine rhubarb and sugar then set aside. Make biscuits by sifting flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork. Add the eggs and enough milk to make a dough that holds together and can be kneaded. Place dough on a floured board and knead gently about 10 times. Pat out the dough to desired thickness. Brush with melted butter and spread with rhubarb mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon and orange rind. Beginning with the wide edge, roll up carefully like a jelly roll. Pinch edges to seal. Cut into 1/2 inch slices. Pour the 1/4 cup melted butter into a square pan and sprinkle in the brown sugar. Place rolls, cut side down, in the butter. Bake at 425 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Vintage car owners like to talk about their special vehicles By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

The annual Spring Fling Show and Shine at the Sukanen Ship Museum drew nearly 160 vintage and classic vehicles of all types. Owners were eager to talk to visitors about their cars and why they are so special to them. Baildon district hot rod owner Scott Mushens attended a car show some years ago “saw some cars and was: like I’m going to build one of them. They look really cool.” The Scottish-born graphic artist found a rusted 1930 Model A near the U.S. border. “I had to replace all the bottom half. The frame was built from scratch with two-inch kick-up in the front, four inch in back.” He installed a 350 Chevy motor with tri-power carburetors.

“It does go fast. Most times when you’re just driving it around town it runs off the centre carb. You get it out on the highway and get the speed up and the two other carbs kick in. You can really feel that. It just takes off.” Bob Goulet from near Silton displayed a 1947 Mercury coupe rebuilt in memory of his wife’s young brother Jeff Bjornson. “My wife’s brother brought this back from Assiniboia about 1975. He was 15 years old and he was going to build a hot rod. “He started on it and I helped him a little bit back then when I was dating his sister. He got killed in a car accident in 77. “The family pushed it down the coulee behind the house and it was kind of out of sight, out of mind.” When visiting the family at Kandahar in northeastern Saskatchewan, Goulet checked out the car every time. When he retired from CP Rail in 2013 “I mentioned to the family that I’d like to take it out of there and restore it.” In 2015 he started, with completion last September. Bob Jones of Moose Jaw supplied some parts. “I changed all the suspension so it has Ford Mustang suspension, cross member Mustang two front end rear leaf spring, Monte Carlo rear end turbo 200-r-4 transmission. “It can move,” he grinned. “We named it Kandahar Kid because in the interior he scrawled with a nail in there Kandahar Kid.”

Mural receives facelift Scott Hellings

If you have been driving along First Ave. NW recently, you might have noticed one of Moose Jaw’s murals looks a bit different. Over the last week or so, the Fire Watch mural has been altered slightly by incorporating a brand-new background. The new paint job is eye-catching. Artist Grant McLaughlin, who painted the mural in 2009, says the murals board wanted to freshen up its appearance. The mural itself, which was initially painted onto removable panels, remains unchanged. “The reason it was painted on panels is because the stucco will only hold the paint for so long. It was about 10 years old and starting to peel, so I thought

Megan Nash returning home for concert after whirlwind year From European tour to SaskTel commercial to Juno nomination, life moving fast for Moose Jaw musician Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

In the last year, things have changed for Megan Nash. She just got back from a tour of Europe that included stops in Estonia and Portugal, but that was on her docket well before things got really interesting…as in creating material for a new album, starring in a commercial for SaskTel, and being nominated for a Juno award. It’s all leading up to a spot on the concert calendar she’s had circled for quite awhile – a special performance with backing band Bears in Hazenmore at the Mae Wilson Theatre on Sept. 7. The show will be a mixture of songs both old and new and will mark the first time Nash has performed in Moose Jaw since being nominated for the Best Contemporary Roots Album for the 2019 Juno Awards this past March. “It was a game-changer, that’s for sure… it’s definitely something you put on everything. That’s kind of my Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, if you know what I mean,” Nash said with a laugh, prior to taking in the recent Ringside Wrestling show that featured friends Kelly Gower and John Dale from Johnny 2 Fingers and the Deformities as performers. “I think it’s something that really legitimizes you in the Canadian music scene and it’s a great honour, a huge tip of the hat.’ While Nash’s album Seeker didn’t claim the award – that honour went to Donovan Woods for his album Meant Well – having a chance to simply be included in consideration for the honour was reward in itself.

Megan Nash performs at Bandfest this past summer. “I was unaware that my album was re-submitted, so it was just out of nowhere… it came at a time when we needed some good news and it definitely meant a lot,” she said. Nash has since hit the road for her European tour and has

been working on new music, opting for a different overall approach and sound this time around. “I just need to focus on making something I’d like or I’d like to listen too, something that feels like my truth for how I feel right now,” Nash explained. “I have a feeling it’s going to be a mixture of Song Harvest Volume One, which is just guitar and voice and the second one (Seeker) which was a full band where I had Bears in Hazenmore as back-up. They’re really great with texture and they add so much to each song, so I feel the whole album is going to be a mixture of that.” While it’s still early to say if some of her new tunes will be shared on stage in September, one thing is for certain – the show will be a fun night with hometown fans who have supported her from the beginning. “I’ve always felt a lot of support from Moose Jaw, the community has always been great to me and this show is meant to be a ‘hey, it’s been a really wild year with the SaskTel ad and the Juno nomination, so let’s get together and have some laughs and play some music’,” Nash said. “And the Mae Wilson Theatre is my favourite place to play ever; it’s such a perfect venue and it’s great to be able to have a chance to play there again.” Tickets for the show – which will include opening act Scotch & Water from Hamburg, Germany -- are currently available at the Mae Wilson Theatre box office.

Appearing in Moose Jaw provincial court on June 3, Weeks, 26, pleaded guilty to breaching his curfew, to theft of electronics under $5,000, to breaching his probation, to possessing stolen property, and to breaching an undertaking by failing to keep the peace. The Crown stayed several other charges. As part of a joint submission, Weeks was given a six-month suspended sentence and probation, along with six months to pay a fine of $500.

Law students learn more about court during field trip By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

A group of students from Cornerstone Christian School gained a better perspective about the Canadian justice system during a recent trip to Moose Jaw provincial court. More than 20 students in grades 11 and 12 who are taking Law 30 spent a morning recently in courtroom No. 2 listening to and watching the proceedings. Teacher Lee Behrns explained that he brings his Law 30 students twice a year to give them some experience in a real courtroom. There are usually 30 students in the

class, but since half were away for another event, Behrns invited other Grade 12 students to join the field trip. While students discuss in class how court works and study the justice system by reading textbooks, an actual visit to a court house changes their understanding, he continued. They can see how a real court room operates and how the justice system functions. During a trip in the fall, the students spent time speaking with Crown prosecutor Robbie Parker and Judge Daryl Rayner, Behrns said. The two officials

answered any questions the youths had. However, neither Parker nor Judge Brian Henderickson were able to spend any time with the students during the most recent trip due to a full docket agenda. Attending court is an important part of the law class and learning about crimes, Henderickson said to the students during a brief break. He noted that while he was unable to answer their questions, he appreciated them being in court. The trip to the courthouse was the second visit for Grade 12 student Stephen Braun. He noted that attending court pro-

vides a wide variety of experiences from which to learn. “One thing people don’t get to see is how backed up the system is,” Braun said, pointing out most people’s matters were adjourned to June 17. “It’s certainly a really good experience, especially for people who are not in court (regularly).” Braun added that he had considered a career in the law profession, but changed his mind since there is too much paperwork.

Community service given to man for breaching his probation Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A 20-year-old man will have to complete another month of probation and perform 20 hours of community service after he failed to report to his court worker during a previous probation term. The man — who cannot be named because he was underage when he received his initial probationary order — appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court recently. As part of a joint submission, he pleaded guilty to breaching his probation and was given a

conditional discharge. He will have to finish his probation, undertake the community service by Oct. 31, report to a probation officer, and keep the peace and be of good behaviour. He was given the year-long youth probation order on April 19, 2018 and was required to report in weekly to a court worker, explained Crown prosecutor Robbie Parker while reading the facts. However, the 20-year-old did not report in for a two-week period this past February. At the time of this breach, the 20-year-old was homeless since his father had kicked him out of the home, explained legal aid lawyer Tyne Hagey. She acknowledged that the young man should have taken steps to inform his probation worker of this sit-

uation. The man is still homeless but staying at a shelter, she added. “We hope to give him the opportunity to ensure he does not have his youth record tag along with him into adulthood,” Hagey said about the sentencing recommendation. Other than the two weeks in February and the fact the 20-year-old is homeless, he has actually been doing well, observed Judge Brian Henderickson, who accepted the joint submission. “The joint submission is there to help you,” the judge told the young man. “(It’s good that) you are prepared to comply with the order. A conditional discharge is appropriate.”

Jail time and probation given to man for spitting on officers Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

2019 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM CRESCENT PARK, MOOSE JAW, SK






Judge Brian Henderickson has sentenced Richard Douglas Houghton to four months in jail and 12 months of probation thereafter for assaulting two police officers. Henderickson handed down his decision recently at Moose Jaw provincial court. He agreed to follow the joint submission of jail time and probation that the Crown and defence put forward. Houghton was led away to begin his sentence immediately after the judge finished discussing his reasons for the sentence. Houghton pleaded guilty to assaulting two peace officers during a previous court appearance.


Father receives probation for slapping daughter upside the head Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Spanking children as a disciplinary measure seems to be on the way out with parents, but it appears slapping kids upside the head is still used by some guardians. In Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Steven Leonard Young, 32, pleaded guilty to assault and received a suspended sentence. He was given 12 months of probation, has to keep the peace and be of good behaviour, report to a probation officer, and complete 20 hours of community service within six months.

Woman expresses shame for appearing in court on impaired driving charge

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Although she was ashamed to appear in court for an impaired driving charge, Haley Alexandria Walz appreciated the fact she did not injure anyone or herself while behind the wheel. In Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Walz, 24, pleaded guilty to having a blood alcohol content over the legal limit of .08. She received a fine of $2,000 and three months to pay, and a one-year driving prohibition. The Crown stayed a charge of operating a conveyance while impaired.

City Hall Council Notes For more Local and Council News visit

City hall elevators to be modernized and fully operational by end of 2019 Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

After 34 years of operations, the elevators at city hall will soon be modernized to increase performance and allow for both to again operate at the same time. During city council’s May 27 regular meeting, council unanimously approved a motion to award ThyssenKrupp Elevator (Canada) Limited the contract to modernize the elevators for $323,069.45. Funding for this project will come from the Facilities Building Reserve ($123,069.45) and from the PR 64 fund ($200,000). By modernizing the components of both elevators, the elevators’ performance will increase through faster floor-to-floor dispatching times, smoother rides, better floor accuracy, improved energy efficiency and the

ability to run both elevators simultaneously, according to a city administration report. Both elevators are expected to be modernized and fully operational by the end of 2019. Background The south elevator has been out of commission since last December when it was identified that the elevators and control systems were out of date and could no longer be re-programmed or replaced since the original manufacturer was out of business, the report said. If the municipality continued to run both elevators, there was a high likelihood the entire control panel would fail and result in a complete system failure. Therefore, the south elevator

was shut down while the north elevator was allowed to run on basic controls. Council discussion The Facilities Building Reserve has been funded by an annual contribution of $20,000 per year from the parks and recreation capital budget, but that didn’t happen in 2018, pointed out Coun. Brian Swanson. He was curious why that was. It was overlooked the past couple of years because of the changes in administration in the parks and rec department, explained finance director Brian Acker. It fell out of the budget, but it has now been brought to the attention of the parks director and will return. Several requests for funding for proj-

ects not included in the 2019 budget have come to council this year, said Swanson. This includes funding for a new payroll software upgrade and now the elevator upgrade. “I realize we need elevators at city hall,” he continued. “But at budget time, there were reductions made at the last minute, including road repairs. Then things start coming in through side door that take a lot of money.” The city hall building is open to the public and not just employees, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. Residents who might have mobility issues need to have access to the second, third and fourth floors. Council then approved the motion to fund the elevator repairs.

Proposed changes to noise and building bylaws closer to implementation Jason G. Antonio Moose Jaw Express

More than a month after business owner Kyra Klassen pleaded guilty to a noise violation, amendments to the noise bylaw and building bylaw are one step closer to reality. Amendments to these bylaws were brought forward to city council during its May 27 regular meeting for first readings. Council voted 6-1 on both amendments — Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed each time — which means the bylaws will have to return to the June 10 council meeting for official approval. Background During a previous meeting, council directed city administration to include an amendment to the time parameters established in the section pertaining to outdoor public events. The current noise bylaw allows sanctioned outdoor events to be exempt from noise requirements until 11 p.m. This is an extension from the 10 p.m. time by which other users must abide. City administration says in a report that it does not support a more restrictive time and recommends it be removed prior to any enactment of the bylaw. “The intent of this time extension is to allow crowds to disperse from events that may end close to or past

10 p.m.,” the report added. Amendments to the building bylaw would require soundproofing in separate mixed-use buildings that have walls flush with one another. Sewer and water utility bylaw amendments Third and final reading was given to the sewer and water utility bylaw, with amendments made to reflect rate changes for rural water users. Zoning amendment Council officially approved the zoning amendment bylaw. This bylaw would accommodate the redevelopment of the former Union Hospital site for mixed residential and commercial use. The bylaw would also align the zoning of selected adjacent properties with their current residential use. Official Community Plan bylaw Council officially approved the Official Community Plan amendment bylaw, which would accommodate the redevelopment of the former Union Hospital site for mixed residential and commercial use. The bylaw would also align the zoning of selected adjacent properties with their current residential use.

City Hall Council Notes Solar company receives fourth extension from council for possible project It could be early 2020 before SaskPower tells MackSun Solar Corporation whether it is the lucky recipient to construct a solar project near Moose Jaw. The corporation intends to build a 10-megawatt pilot solar farm on roughly 130 acres of municipal-owned land, which would include a Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw Campus research and education centre. It could be early 2020 before SaskPower tells MackSun Solar Corporation whether it is the lucky recipient to construct a solar project near Moose Jaw. The corporation intends to build a 10-megawatt pilot solar farm on roughly 130 acres of municipal-owned land, which would include a Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw Campus research and education centre. This is the second solar project that SaskPower has initiatied since 2016. While MackSun Solar submitted an application for Saskatchewan’s first utility-scale solar power project, the Crown corporation awarded the project to Saturn Power. SaskPower is now moving forward with the request for proposal phase for its sec-

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express 31, 2020, with the corporation providing a 10-per-cent non-refundable deposit of $9,660. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Council discussion “This an incredible project. I’m really happy you have such great perseverance to hang in there with this,” said Coun. Chris Warren. “This will be a wonderful project for our city.” This process does take time, Mack acknowledged. SaskPower has to look at the company’s interconnected capabilities. This means the corporation has to go into the process as if it’s the first time again. It also has to continue paying proposal fees until it wins and is selected. “We still believe Moose Jaw still the best site for solar development in the province, if not beyond our borders,” he added. “We still believe we can make it happen.” Although Swanson commended Mack for his tenacity, he was opposed to supporting the request since this was the fourth time it had come to council. Furthermore, while SaskPower and MackSun Solar are expect-

ond 10-megawatt solar project. MackSun Solar had to submit a new application and go through the same process again. The solar company will learn if it is the successful candidate for this project by the first quarter of 2020. The commercial operation start date would then be Dec. 1, 2021. Project background As part of the project, MackSun Solar is proposing to purchase 10 eight-by-20 sea cans for $35,000 to $40,000, while paying $1,451 per acre for 140 acres, for between $238,140 and $243,140. MackSun Solar has met its submission requirements but required city council to approve a further request to extend its conditional sales agreement closing date so it can proceed. Tim Mack, president/CEO of MackSun Solar Corporation, was back before council during its May 27 regular meeting for a fourth time asking for another extension on the agreement. Council voted 6-1 on a motion to extend the closing date of the agreement to Dec.

ed to make money from this endeavour, the municipality likely will not. Swanson pointed out the 130 acres has been assessed at roughly $233,000, which means the municipality would receive $3,300 per year if the commercial tax rate is applied. “In terms of finances for the city, I believe there are better options,” he said, adding a project like this is better off in rural areas versus inside municipal boundaries. “I just don’t think the economics are there for that project versus what we could be doing with that land.” This project isn’t strictly about money, said Warren. There is a major opportunity here to work with SaskPoly for a research and education centre focused on solar energy. Such renewable and sustainable energy is what will power the future. There is also the opportunity to bring in more sustainable energy partners who will create jobs and economic spinoff. This land is also limited in its use since it is a flood zone, Warren added.

Money from speed cameras gets more focus from council than safety benefits The financial benefits of having automated speed enforcement (ASE) cameras received more attention during city council’s recent meeting than the safety aspects the machines are supposed to provide. Speed enforcement cameras have been operational in Moose Jaw, Regina and Saskatoon since 2015 as part of a pilot project. The cameras here have been in place on the Trans-Canada Highway monitoring eastbound and westbound lanes, while cameras have rotated between Palliser Heights School on Grace Street and William Grayson School on Caribou Street. These three municipalities received 75 per cent of the revenue that the speed cameras generated, while the province received 25 per cent to cover costs.


Moose Jaw Arts in Motion reminds students that the deadline for applications for the 2019 Larry Wilson Scholarship program is coming up July 2, 2019. Students furthering their studies in literature and the performing arts are invited to apply for these scholarships, worth over $2,800 this year. The Larry Wilson Scholarships are available annually for individuals studying in the fields of Drama, Musical Theatre, Vocalists, Instrumentalists, Contemporary Dance, Traditional Dance and Literature. Applicants must be 17 years of age or over and have permanent residence in Moose Jaw or the South Saskatchewan Enterprise Region. Application forms are available on the website at: For more information contact Regina Sagal-Hendry at 306-692-3705.

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Speed camera revenues According to city administration, gross revenue from the cameras last year was $2.5 million. After 25 per cent was sent to the province, and after expenses of $885,000 are considered, net revenue for Moose Jaw was $979,000. However, that will decrease this year, as the provincial government — through Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) — intends to change the revenue distribution model. This means a portion of revenues from the three original cities will be shared with other municipalities. The program will also be made permanent. The changes mean 25 per cent of generated revenues go the provincial operating budget; 55 per cent to cover expenses; 10 per cent to the municipality; and 10 per cent to the provincial traffic safety pool, from which other municipalities can apply. City administration expects Moose Jaw to receive be-

tween $250,000 and $500,000 in gross revenue from the speed cameras. Council discussion Swanson sits on the William Grayson school community council, where the concern for years has been safety in school zones. He understands well the safety aspect these machines are supposed provide. However, with changes to the funding formula, 90 cents on every dollar from fines will now leave the municipality, he continued. This means Moose Jaw would keep $250,000 from the $2.5 million produced every year. “So I don’t feel that’s the trade off I’d like to make with respect to that. I look at the options where we could have associate constables with radar guns and providing some safety component as those cameras do,” he said. “Then the money would stay in community … . “To me this is a revenue grab from the province.”

Cowboys win! Riders put on a show at Alpha Bull PBR Moose Jaw event Night full of action sees total of 15 full rides as Kindersley’s Buttar takes top spot Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

There was no question the bulls came out on top during the Alpha Bull PBR Canada bullriding shows the last two years at Mosaic Place – you could take the total of full rides for both shows combined and almost count them up on one hand. Saturday night during the most recent PBR Moose Jaw Power by Young’s Equipment show, it was all cowboys, all night. The event featured a total of 15 riders lasting the full eight seconds on the Alpha Bull cadre of stock, including 12 during the first round and three more during the short-go. Two of those belonged to Kindersley’s Dakota Buttar – an 85.0-point ride on Lon’s Lost It in the first go and impressive 89.5 on Grey Tower III in the second – for a 174.5 total and first place on the night. All the more impressive considering Buttar hadn’t been on a bull the last two months while he recovered from a shoulder injury. “I was kind of nervous getting back into in tonight, but it felt good and things went really well so I’m pretty happy with it,” Buttar said shortly after receiving the Alpha Bull champion’s guitar. “Coming into the weekend, I just wanted to test how everything felt and it felt good, so I’ll go hard from now on and see what I can do the rest of the way.” Buttar had an idea of what he was up against with both

PBR Moose Jaw winner Dakota Buttar covers Lon’s Lost It for 85 points during the first go-around rides, having seen them in action in the past. “This last one (Grey Tower), I’d seen a bit, the previous one I’d seen before but I didn’t know a lot about him, so I was happy to get the ride,” he said. “Some guys don’t like knowing bulls, but I like to have and idea of what I’m getting into.” Making the Moose Jaw stop all the more special was how close it was to home – with Buttar’s girlfriend and a handful of friends from back home making the short trip to take in the show. “It’s really nice being close to home, I’ve been travelling down south all winter and it’s nice to have a short car-ride here,” he said. Claresholm, Alta.’s Logan Biever had the top performance during the long-go, riding Lace Up for 87.5 points, but was unable to stay on Fish Camp in his short-go. Maple Creek’s Jared Parsonage – the current PBR Canada points leader – finished second with 171 points after riding Hoka Hey for 83 points and covering Home Grown for 88 points in the second round. The event wrapped up with a performance by Juno Award-winning The Washboard Union immediately after the final ride.

Record book takes beating at track and field provincials Total of 10 records fall through weekend at Gutheridge Field Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association provincial track and field record book has a far, far different look after the 2019 championships wrapped up on Saturday afternoon. Athletes from Meadow Lake to Yorkton and everywhere in between set a total of 10 new records through the twoday meet at Gutheridge Field, one of the most impressive assaults on provincial-best performances in recent history. Leading the way was Borden’s Savannah Sutherland, who won three junior girls gold medals and in the process picked off three provincial meet records. Sutherland began Friday afternoon by setting a new mark in the 80 metre hurdles of 11.36 seconds, beating the record of 11.53 seconds set by Saskatoon’s Jenni Hucul in 2004. Next up was the 400 metres, and her most impressive break of the day – Sutherland’s time of 56.21 seconds cracked the 37-year-old record of 56.57 seconds held by Yorkton’s Gail Harris since 1982. Finally, there was the 200 metres, where Hucul was again the victim as Sutherland knocked the record from 25.00 seconds to 24.89. The interesting thing? As impressive as the performances were, they were anything but a surprise, as Sutherland herself revealed.

Borden’s Savannah Sutherland runs the junior girls 200 metres heats on Saturday morning. Sutherland would go on to win three gold medals and set three provincial records.

Saskatoon St. Joseph’s Michael Akintunde (centre) set a new provincial record in the senior boys long jump.

“Last year at (Under-16) nationals I won three gold medals and this year it’s been going really good, so I’m pretty happy with it,” she said after setting her 400 metres mark. “I’ve moved up an age group and things have been a little tougher but I’m still having good results.” One of the most impressive breaks came in the senior boys long lump, as Saskatoon St. Joseph’s Michael Akintunde brought the meet largely to a halt in support of his final jump and proceeded to crack 7.31 metres, breaking the mark of 7.13 metres set by Swift Current’s Marcus Kouri in 2015. “I came in knowing what the record was and I had a feeling I could get it, so I really pushed myself to see if it was possible and it turned out okay,” Akintunde said. “It was good to have the other guys, (Swift Current’s)

Savannah Sutherland on the podium after winning her 400 metres gold medal and setting a new record. Scott (Joseph) and (Langenburg’s) Drew (Kirk), we’ve been neck-and-neck, so it was a lot of fun.” Meadow Lake’s Avery Pearson cracked one of the oldest records on the books as she set a new midget girls 800 metres mark of 2:12.22, breaking the record of 2:14.70 set in 1979 by Regina’s Jane Bolstad. The junior girls 3,000 metres saw Jenna McFadyen of Maidstone run 10:06.70, besting Regina’s Kate Kujawa’s record of 10:17.70 from 2008. The midget boys 100 metres record took a beating all day Friday as three competitors bested the standard of 11.36 seconds from Adam Paslawski in 2012 before Prince Albert’s Storm Zablocki finally lowered it once and for all to 11.25 seconds. One of those 100 metres record-breakers, Waldheim’s Ryan Harder, etched his name in the records earlier in the day, leaping 6.46 metres in the long jump to break the mark of 6.35 metres set by Calvin Napope of St. Louis in 2015. Last but not least, Dawson Klinger of Clavet ran 22.13 seconds in the junior boys 200 metres to break Paslawski’s mark of 22.51 set in 2013.

South Central shines at track and field provincials as Vanier wins team title Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Vanier’s Henok Shiferaw put together a hard-won bronze medal to close out the senior boys tetrathlon at the Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association provincial championships on Friday.

Competing in the 800 metres to close out the four-event competition, Shiferaw found himself in an epic battle down the backstretch with Kindersley’s Tyler Heck. The two looked to go down to the 190626G0 190626G1

wire when disaster struck – Shiferaw stumbled and went down on the Gutheridge Field track a metre from the finish line. He gathered himself and crawled across, only to have eventual gold medalist Jackson Sitter collide with him as Sitter finished his race. Shiferaw was helped off the track but gathered himself moments later and accepted his bronze medal to cheers from the crowd. Shiferaw’s time of 2:12.01 was a personal best by no less than five seconds. His long jump of 5.88 metres was also a p.b. and good enough for third. Shiferaw’s 100 metres time of 11.60 was third best, with the only setback coming in the shot put, where his 8.35 metre effort put him 26th. Shiferaw finished with 2,329 points, 199 back of second-place finisher Ryan Mills of Southey. Sitter, who hails from Leader, recorded 2,627 points to set a new record in the young event. The two days of competition saw a total of four multiple medalists from Moose Jaw, with Vanier senior girls competitor Allison Grajczyk-Jelinski winning bronze in the 1,500 metres Friday before closing out her storied senior year with silver in the 3,000 metres Saturday. Central senior boys competitor Crozier Holmes capped an impressive season

of his own with silver in the 400 metres Friday and bronze in the 200 metres Saturday. His second place finish was especially close, as he crossed the line on the heels of gold medalist Quincy Telus from Regina. “I’m a little disappointed, I really wanted that gold, but I’m proud of how I worked Central’s Akuol Riak picked up a silver medal in the midget girls 800 metres on Saturday after claiming bronze in an epic race in the 400 metres the day before. Rounding out the double-medalists was Peacock Camryn Gillies, who won bronze in the senior girls 400 metres in a time of 1:01.27 to go along with a third-place showing in the 800 metres in 2:21.36. The overall success for South Central – a total of 18 medals including four gold, three silver and 11 bronze – saw the team finish fourth overall with 1170.08 points, one of the best showings in district history. To top it all off, the Vanier Vikings emerged as the top team in the 3A classification, finishing with 309.83 points to take top spot ahead of Peacock, who recorded 277.25 points. Central landed sixth at 201.50 and Caronport 10th with 81.50 points.

Miller Express back in win column with victory over Regina Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Miller Express standout Michael Borst has shown through the early part of the Western Canadian Baseball League season that he can get the job done with his bat. Turns out, he’s just as effective on the mound. Borst tossed six innings, giving up two runs on five hits as the Express picked up a 10-2 win over the Regina Red Sox at Ross Wells Park on Saturday night, snapping a four-game losing skid and improving to 5-5 on the season. “Michael took care of it for us tonight, it was really good to see him on the bump,” said Express coach Rich Sorenson. “That was the first time he’s pitched in I don’t know how long; he went six innings for us and wanted to stay in more. So, he did a great job for us.” All four pitchers on the night showed an impressive level of control, surrendering only three walks in total against eight strike-outs . That’s a far cry from recent outings, where walks and hit batters have led to big innings for the opposition. Michael Ross took over in the seventh, giving up a single hit. Jaden Hofmann surrendered two hits and struck out a pair in the eighth, and Jack Gamba closed out the

look at it tonight, they got 10 hits, but we limited the walks. That’s the key. Make them earn it, but freebies, that’s when you get in trouble… that’s where the scores get up there. But you scatter 10 hits and give up two runs, we can do that all day long.” The Express trailed 2-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth, where they sent three runs across the plate before scoring another five in the fifth for a 9-2 lead. They tacked on one more in the seventh to close out scoring in the contest. The top of the order did most of the damage in the game, with lead-off hitter Eric Marriott going 3-for-3 with three runs scored, two-hitter Blake Gallagher 3-for-5 with three runs batted in and Borst 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI. Chris Warken and Geordie McDougall each crossed the plate twice while Alex Orenczuk went 2-for5 with a run and two RBI. The Express were back in action Tuesday, June 11, when they kicked off a three-games-in-three-nights set with the Okotoks Dawgs. The series continues Wednesday, June 12 and Thursday, June 13, with all three games at 7 p.m. at Ross Wells Park.

Zarr leaves Miller Express – for a very, very good reason

Express pitcher/infielder returns home to donate bone marrow after rare blood type match Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Miller Express bullpen became a little bit smaller earlier this week, as first-year pitcher Casey Zarr decided to return home to Bondurant, Idaho after only a week with the team. That might sound like extreme homesickness, but in this case it’s anything but. The 6-foot-1, 255-pound right-hander made the trek back south for the most incredible of reasons. Zarr has a very rare blood type, reported to be O-negative, it’s present in only seven per cent of the population and is known as a universal donor due to it’s compatibility with all types in the ABO profile. More importantly, his human leukocyte antigen, or HLA type, is also unique. Wit a bone marrow donation needed, Zarr is a match for someone in desperate need of a transplant. With that, the 23-year-old has returned home to donate bone marrow and save someone’s life.

“He’s gone for a very good reason,” coach Rich Sorenson said with a tone of amazement. “I think it’s a testimony to him… he’s a solid kid and it’s like yeah, how do you say no to that. He’s saving a life and all the power to him.” The procedure is expected to take three to four weeks to complete and recover from, meaning Zarr will be unlikely to return to the team this season. There could have been a snag over his commitment to the team, but naturally, the Express were quick to let him go. “We’re very proud of him, and even though he signed a contract, you can’t keep him here with that going on,” Sorenson said. “It does hurt us, but it’s great see something like that happen and someone willing to do something like that, and we wish him the best.” Zarr had made two starts for the Express, giving up six runs in seven innings of work and striking out three.

Casey Zarr picks an errant throw to get an out at first base during the Express home opener.

Hoops for Hunger comes through for charity

Moose Jaw Thunder basketball club raises over $3,000 for Hunger in Moose Jaw Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Having at least 20 years’ experience, a foot in height and well over 100 pounds on your opponents in a basketball game can make a difference in the final score. What the Moose Jaw Thunder Basketball Club youngsters did have over their more seasoned adversaries during their Players vs. Parents game was numbers, something they put to good use in the later stages of the contest at Riverview Collegiate on Saturday, June 1st.. It was all in good fun, of course, and an entertaining diversion as the second annual Hoops for Hunger marathon wound

A sampling of the action from the Parents vs. Players game during the Hoops for Hunger charity event. through the early evening of a long day. “You can’t teach height, and it’s amazing the lack of mercy you see the parents have for their kids on the floor,” laughed Thunder coach Curt Lorge, who put his own towering presence under the basket to good use during the game. “That game is just the best, the kids enjoy themselves, the parents have a great time and it’s all part of a really fun day.” The action kicked off at 10 a.m. with Players vs. Alumni and Players vs. Coaches games and continued with a variety of basketball contests and competitions until things wrapped up around 9:15 p.m. “Oh my goodness, it was amazing,”

Lorge said of the day’s activities. “The alumni game was a hoot, the older girls who came back were moaning a little bit that they weren’t in great shape. But they had a really good time and it was the start of a good turnout. And the young girls who played them were like ‘these guys are so good’ and we were ‘well, these girls were you guys five to 10 years ago’. It was really cool.” Things came to a conclusion with a clubwide intrasquad game, which as one might expect didn’t feature the highest energy. The final count was $3,040, all raised through hard fundraising. The Hoops for Hunger was such a suc-

cess, even the players themselves were surprised with how much they were able to bring in. “It’s amazing, the memories will stick with the girls for a long time and the knowledge of the good that they’ve done,” Lorge said. “They’re already asking me ‘hey, what else can we do to do more fundraising stuff’. “So we’re indebted to Riverview for letting us host there, and there’s a million people that made it happen, but it’s all about the girls and all the hard work they put in to make this what it was.”

Community Induction into the Sask. Mateychuk signs with Warriors Baseball Hall of Fame, August 17, 2019 First-round pick in 2019 Bantam Draft inks Weyburn is a community that has been deeply involved in the building of baseball players, teams and facilities since 1900. The love of baseball is prominent thanks to the support of local businesses, volunteers and organizations, including the Prairie Sky Coop, the City of Weyburn, Weyburn Rebekahs, Weyburn Young Fellows, Weyburn Legion Branch # 47, Weyburn Credit Union and more. Support is a two way street, as the Beavers Western Canada Baseball League [WCBL] team is often involved in helping other local organizations including the Weyburn Humane Society, the Silver Seals Swim Team and more. Most of the players and other people involved in Weyburn baseball went on to become prominent leaders in the community. The first recorded baseball game in Weyburn was 1901 when citizens of Weyburn beat the Railroad team. The second game was on July 19, 1902 when Robert C. Sutherland pitched the first of two games for Weyburn vs. North Weyburn. Weyburn players of note included George Beischel, Dr. R M Mitchell, Joe Mergens SR. and Alf Woods. Rains forced withdrawal from the diamond but it did not withdraw the future of baseball in Weyburn. Jack and Bill Mertz came to Weyburn before 1906, bringing with them a great interest in baseball. A team started and led by OS Mitchell, brought in a battery from Toronto which helped them to capture the Soo Line League Championship. That moment laid the foundation for

many years of top caliber and exciting baseball in Weyburn. It is believed that in 1935, when the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League barnstormed Saskatchewan, the team stopped in Weyburn on their way north. The Weyburn Beavers played in the Southern Saskatchewan League from 1937 to 1964. In 1948, Joe Warren [Warren Drugs], donated a large score board for Harvey Field, named after Pop Harvey, [now named Tom Laing Park], and with many volunteer hours of work, it was made into a first class facility. Les Wilder hit the first home run out of the new park! Other notable Beaver players of the 1945-1954 era, included Keith Covert, Ralph Hogg, Dave Huff, Jim Burge along with Gaylr Shupe and his brothers Blaine, Doug and Jack. Baseball diamonds and parks continue to be popular places in Weyburn and are used by both recreational and semi-pro sports teams, all of which are supported by local associations and volunteers. Tom Laing Park is the current home of the WCBL’s Weyburn Beavers. With local and corporate community support, baseball remains a strong force in the community of Weyburn and is proud of its strong minor league system and its facilities, with eyes on expansion in the future. Weyburn is an excellent example of how a community has, and continues to contribute to the rich history baseball history of Saskatchewan!

Ernfold 4-H Beef Achievement Day The 62nd Annual Achievement Day of the Ernfold 4-H Beef Club Was held in Ernfold on Sunday, June 2nd with 15 members showing their livestock. Photos submitted.

History of the Ernfold 4-H Beef Club The Ernfold 4-H Beef Club was organized on December 5, 1957 with 14 members. Membership dues were a dime per meeting. How times have changed! Fifty-nine years later, the current membership is 15 and dues are $90.00 per year. Meetings were first held in member’s homes, then moved to the Ernfold School, the Morse Council Chambers, Morse School, Ernfold Hall and are now currently held in Morse Hall. Recreation and social activities were at first combined with meetings. Lunch and games were organized by the members. Fundraisers included Box Socials and Bingos. Later, raffles and picking ditches were the mainstay of funding for the club. In recent years, the distribution of PFRA trees and selling lunch at auction sales in

the area provided the necessary funds for the club. This year the fundraisers included; auction sale lunches, Organic farmers lunch, FCC grant, steer catalog sponsors, etc. Ernfold Wheat Pool sponsored the registration fees in the early years and throughout the years, the community has always been very supportive of the club. Numerous trophies have been donated by the community businesses, organizations and individuals. Through the years, social activities such as Gym Night, roller skating, curling and ice skating, have become separate events. Currently included are educational experiences in the group’s social activities. In previous years, members have visited vet clinics, diary farms, the beef symposium, and new this year the members toured

Central Butte Feeds, pelleting plant. Ernfold has always been strictly a beef club, offering members concentrated instructions in Fed Calf or Market Steer, Heifer and Futurity projects. Membership has ranged from nine to thirty-five members and has taken in an area from Rush Lake to Chaplin, and from Hodgeville to Central Butte. Achievement Days have been held annually in Ernfold and the club has taken its animals to Frontier Days in Swift Current, since 1958. The first uniform worn by the club was a gold shirt with black pants and a bow tie. In 1967, a white shirt and black bow tie were chosen. The uniform changed to red and white checked shirts with blue jeans in 1977. In 1986, the members decided to go with green polo shirts and black jeans.

Then in 1996, white and black western shirts with black jeans were worn. In 2003, the club decided to order green and black vests, that were worn with a white t-shirt and black jeans. At Frontier Days, June 2013, the club members first wore the current, sapphire blue t-shirts with ERNFOLD on the back. Over the years, the members of the club have benefited from the 4-H Program. Talent nights, public speaking, camps, trips, and exchanges have all helped to expand their education. Participation in 4-H activities at District, Regional and Provincial levels have given them the opportunity to make friends all over the province. The club is proud of the achievements of the Ernfold 4-H Beef Club- its members, leaders, parents and supporters.

Moose Jaw fathers remembered for supporting their community and families Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Jim Wilk was a member of the Wa Wa Shriners and was always around to help others. Photo courtesy the Wa Wa Shriners of Moose Jaw. Moose Jaw fathers Jim Wilk and Kerry DePape were hard-working men who volunteered in the community and looked for ways to help others, according to the people who knew them. Wilk, DePape and Justin Filteau were killed in a plane crash near Medicine Hat, Alta., on June 1. Wilk was piloting the aircraft, which crashed 20 minutes after takeoff. All three men were flying back to Moose Jaw after attending the stag party for Wilk’s son. Wilk’s son and DePape’s daughter are to marry this summer. “He was a very capable pilot, that’s the saddest part,” Rob Walchuk, a friend of both Wilk and DePape, told CBC. “Everything was about safety.” Friends since high school Bill Johnstone knew Wilk for more than 30 years, after the two became friends in high school. They became reacquainted in the 1970s when they played broomball together. “We had a lot of fun,” said Johnstone. Wilk, 64, was the owner of J Wilk Landscaping Ltd. and J Wilk Excavating and Demolition. He was also a rural councillor and a regular member with the Wa Wa Shriners of Moose Jaw. Johnstone recalls that Wilk was always moving equipment or purchasing equipment for his business. Wilk also helped Johnstone on his farm. “If I got into a bind, a trackhoe would show up in my yard. (One time) Jimmy tore down my old barn that was here,” recalled Johnstone.

Kerry and Cheryl DePape would have been married for 35 years this year. They both lived in Churchbridge as youths and became high school sweethearts. Photo courtesy Kerry DePape’s Facebook page Wilk’s generosity stands out in Johnstone’s mind, since his friend did much for his neighbours and for his community as a whole. Johnstone and Wilk had a face-to-face conversation before the latter left for Medicine Hat. Johnstone recalled that they talked about Wilk staying in Medicine Hat overnight instead of flying home. Supporting the church John Kreutzweiser is the pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Moose Jaw and knew DePape for more than 20 years. The pastor described DePape as “a wonderful man” with his family, with his community, and in the church. “He was one of the members of the church (who) was instrumental in the construction of our building in 1997 and 1998,” said Kreutzweiser. DePape liaised between the church and the construction company, but also worked on every facet of the project. DePape was also heavily involved in the parish’s life, Kreutzweiser continued, from being on the board, to being a pastor’s assistant, to assisting the sound technician. DePape’s willingness to help — plus his happy attitude — stands out to Kreutzweiser. “We’re going to miss him …” the pastor added. “He was very dedicated to whatever he was doing.” High school sweethearts The past week has been tough for Cheryl DePape, Kerry’s wife, but, she said, she has received an overwhelm-

Justin Filteau was a well-known football player and coach, while he was also a friend of the DePape and Wilk families. He was also killed in the plane crash. Photo submitted ing amount of support from family, friends and the community. Kerry, 55, and Cheryl would have been married 35 years this August. They grew up in Churchbridge and dated in high school. “I don’t know if you could find anyone better,” said Mrs. DePape, her voice filling with emotion. Kerry was always present for the family, she continued. He was involved in the lives of their three children and supportive of her activities. He also enjoyed being a grandfather to his two-year-old grandson. Kerry loved being on his boat, having barbecues, and getting together with friends, said Mrs. DePape. He could build anything from landscaping materials — including a beautiful structure for his first daughter’s backyard wedding — while he also was an experienced handyman. Kerry was a dedicated Saskatchewan Roughriders’ fan and loved going to the games, said Mrs. DePape. She noted he was a real people person who enjoyed having conversations with others. Neither Kerry nor Jim will be physically present during their children’s wedding this summer, but they will be there in spirit, she continued. “It will be bittersweet, that’s for sure,” Mrs. DePape added. “But they loved their kids so much and we’re so happy for the upcoming wedding … It’ll be a beautiful day.”

Habitat conservation work in Saskatchewan by NCC described By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Conservation work on the Missouri Coteau by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) was outlined at the Chaplin Shorebird Festival dinner. The Missouri Coteau ranges from sandstone badlands to alkaline waters with rolling hills from the U.S. border to North Battleford, said Mike Burak, NCC southwest Saskatchewan director. “Since 2002, 134 endangered or threatened species of plants and animals have been reported in the Coteau.” Fourteen of 53 Saskatchewan birding areas are in the Coteau. The Chaplin lake complex is an international hemispheric shorebird reserve – only one of three in Canada and supports critical habitat for birds and migrating birds, he said. Since founding in the early 1960s, the NCC has acquired ownership/management of 2.8 million acres of habitat land across Canada with 280 properties conserved to protect diversity forever. Properties are either bought from a willing buyer or a conservation easement agreement is signed with the landowner and attached to the land title. In Saskatchewan NCC has 71,613 acres of conserved land with just over 15,000

Mike and Kayden Burak of NCC acres owned and about 55,000 acres in easements. The easements represent one-third of the organization’s total easements. The NCC discovers available land, assesses the critical habitat condition, secures it, prepares an inventory of terrain, plants and animals and things like fences and buildings that need teardown, water holes and maps them. A five-year plan is developed to manage the property and targets are set. Each property is monitored with annual visits to properties under conservation ease-

ment, Burak said. A map of findings makes it easier for leasees. “About 90 per cent of all the properties we own are grazed every year,” said Mike Burak. Some are rested to enhance plant growth. In others NCC will reseed native prairie grass varieties. One of the recent acquisitions is the Hole In The Wall property seven miles north of Big Muddy Lake near the U.S. border. The 2,240 acre property is critical habitat with wetlands and is native prairie except

for a piece of unproductive tame grass. This property was acquired in an online auction — not the usual way. “There was a public outcry” when the Crown-owned property was sold. The buyer turned the land back to the crown. After an appraisal NCC bid at the online auction. The property is leased to two ranchers, one whose great-great-grandfather’s original ranch was on the site. Kayden Burak, NCC engagement manager, outlined the volunteer program used to supplement staff. “A big part of what we do is getting people out on our properties. We do ask that you let us know you are there.” Under the property watch, anyone can adopt a property and monitor it for NCC when they have time. You don’t need to know about plants and wildlife.” Last year 158 volunteers worked 729 hours on 14 projects. “The volunteer program is really important to us” given the ratio of staff. An upcoming volunteer event is planting milkweed for monarch butterfly habitat. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Heritage Minute film about D-Day honours everyone’s grandfathers, says director Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Creating a Heritage Minute to honour the 75th anniversary of D-Day was similar to writing a card of thanks to the men who participated in the battle, according to the director. Historica Canada — well-known for producing one-minute vignettes about Canadian history — commissioned a Heritage Minute piece for the anniversary of D-Day, which took place on June 6, 1944. More than 156,000 Allied soldiers — including 14,000 Canadians — stormed five beaches as they took back Western Europe from Nazi Germany. This particular Heritage Minute tells the story of 47-year-old Major Archie MacNaughton, a First World War veteran and leader of the North Shore New Brunswick Regiment’s A Company. The video can be found at

Calgary-based director Chris Petry and his crew filmed for two days at McKenzie Lake and Heritage Park in Calgary, before spending the next seven months in post-production. The Heritage Minute was released on May 29. Petry — who worked on all 10 seasons of the teenaged-theme Superman show, Smallville, and has nearly 20 years of experience in the TV industry — spoke to the Moose Jaw Express about creating the Heritage Minute short. “We really wanted to honour the soldiers, but I think the piece was really meant to honour everyone involved, including the families and everyone who sacrificed …” Petry added. “I would hope by way of telling one person’s story really well, it would honour everyone (who) was a part of (D-Day).”

Hillcrest Golf Club Charity tournament to play for Mammography Matters Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

As medical technology has advanced over the years, the ability to detect, prevent and cure a wide variety of diseases and ailments has continuously expanded and increased. Breast cancer is no exception, with the advent of mammography machines contributing to the early detection of cancer and the always-important early treatment that leads to best outcomes. Those machines have evolved and improved immensely along with the rest of medical imaging technology. New stateof-the-art digital mammography machines can find the disease at stages far earlier than the past, creating treatment options that can eradicate cancer before it has a chance to do lasting damage. What does that have to do with the Hillcrest Golf Club Charity Tournament coming up on Thursday, June 13? The annual Moose Jaw Health Foundation event will be raising funds to purchase a next-generation digital mam-

Mammography Matters logo mography machine for the F.W. Wigmore Regional Hospital, part of the organization’s ongoing Mammography Matters campaign. “All we ask is a minimum $20 donation to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation,” said tournament organizer Jean Kempel. “We take all kinds of donations, too, even

if they don’t want to golf but want to donate, that’s fine. Every little bit helps.” The event – which is sponsored by the Hillcrest Ladies 18-Hole Club and Senior Men’s League -- will feature an 8 a.m. shotgun start, with every dollar raised staying in Moose Jaw and going to the MJHF.

“The Moose Jaw Health Foundation is committed to reducing the incidence of breast cancer, and reducing the mortality from cancer in our community – early detection is key,” said Foundation volunteer chairman James Murdock in a press release. “The new mammography equipment is truly the next great advancement in digital imaging to help detect breast cancer (with) enhanced digital imaging and provides more comfort to the patient during an examination. The Foundation board and the medical staff at the hospital greatly appreciate every dollar raised at the tournament.” Around 80 golfers are expected, with around $2,000 raised annually through the tournament’s 16 years. Participants can enter as a team or individual, with green fees applicable to non-Hillcrest members. Contact the Hillcrest pro shop at 306-693-1921 or Kempel at 306-692-7622 or 306-631-9843 in order to enter.


By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

What should investors do amidst current stock market turmoil? Stock markets across the world have been in turmoil these past few weeks with the impacts of trade wars and the British farce over exiting the European Union. Alternating positive and negative speculation and news about the American negotiations with China for a trade deal push stock prices down and up. The unexpected imposition of a tariff on Mexican imports to the United States has roiled the market fears more. The Toronto Stock Exchange benchmark average, up 14 per cent at one point this year, lost three per cent in May. The index is still up by double digits since New Year’s Day as this is written. The question in many investors’ minds: can the market hold these gains or will it melt down further? No simple answer exists to that question. Too many other factors intercede in the answer. Among these factors sits the potential for a depression like the 1930s when tariff/trade wars brought economies across the world into recession, double digit unemploy-

ment, business closures and stock market losses. The poorly thought-out trade sanctions on China and Mexico will stoke inflation in the U.S.A. China is not about to make a trade deal, knowing Donald Trump has between two years and six years left in the White House. The Chinese took hundreds of years before exposing their society to open trade with other countries. Another two to six-year wait is nothing for them. Trump’s frustrations at Chinese stalling his demands could lead to more trade sanctions and disruption of economies. The high-tech industry has already felt the sting as Trump and then China walled off this globally interdependent sector. The temptation for investors is great to withdraw from the market until matters clear up with some certainty but that could mean pulling out for up to six years and missing out on the dividends being paid regularly. In a stock market scenario of global uncertainty prudent caution is needed.

Short-term market speculators can have a field day, however sudden political trade interference cuts their odds of success. Long-term investors need to show caution as well. Some ideas: if an investor has a stock with large longterm paper gains but thinks the stock is vulnerable to sudden trade actions, partial or full sale might be considered. Remember a 100 per cent gain is equivalent to 12 years of better than average gain. Know what you own. Check holdings carefully to see if the companies are exposed to trade issues and take action accordingly. Try and raise cash for the coming bargains. And inspect the finances of your holdings. Low debt or no debt is preferable. Business models generating steady cash flow are also preferable. Be prepared for the roller coaster ride of your investing life as volatility surges.

On the Front Porch

Paralympian cycles across Canada to support children with autism, disabilities Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

by Wanda Smith

Heart Health

It is good to do some self-reflection from time to time and have a heart check-up. I was impacted by the truth of Matthew 8 as I meditated on the Word this morning: “Everyone who hears my (Jesus’) teaching and applies it to his life can be compared to the wise man who built his house on an unshakeable foundation: when the rains fell and the flood came, with fierce winds beating upon his house, it stood firm because of its strong foundation. But everyone who hears my teaching and does not apply it to his life can be compared to a foolish man who built his house on sand. When it rained and rained and the flood came, with wind and waves beating upon his house, it collapsed and was swept away.” What impacted me most was the phrase: “But everyone who hears my teaching and does not apply it to his life...” It shook me. It is a strong word. It caused me to do a heart check. Do I apply to my life what Jesus has been teaching me? Because that is how I build a strong foundation. It is not simply by reading His Word or hearing His Word preached. It is about putting it into action. I think another word for this would be “coachable.” Someone who is coachable, according to Webster’s dictionary is “capable of being easily taught or trained to do something better.” According to Laura D. Franco, “Being coachable is one of life’s most important skills and attitudes. (It) means you’re open to listening to feedback, able to receive constructive criticism without taking it personally, willing to take a look at your own performance in order to improve it, and generally a super-enthusiastic go-getter type of person.” Anyone who is coachable will benefit from this attitude. This includes athletes (competitive or recreational), employees, and any type of instructors, coaches, children, speakers/ministers, employees, students, business owners, parents and even coaches. When we submit ourselves under someone else’s leadership and training, we can only benefit from increasing our knowledge, our experience and our development. Laura suggests, “Being coachable - even if it makes you feel vulnerable - is the secret to achieving many or most of your dreams.” In being trainable, one shows humility, openness, vulnerability and willingness. This does not make one “less of a person”; in fact, it shows true strength of character to be willing to be taught by someone else who may know something we do not know. It is a true sign of humility to adjust and change mindsets and be mouldable to new ways of thinking and being. Have you ever worked or lived with someone who knows it all...always thinking they’re right, negative, pessimistic, not open to change, disrespectful, generally unwilling to learn grow or do what it takes to improve? This kind of person is not easy to neither live with nor work with. No one wants to be around this type of person. A person who is coachable will benefit and grow, cultivating growth and developing an atmosphere around them that is upbeat, caring and full of inspiration. That’s the kind of person I want to be! Joseph Folkman suggests five ways we can become more 60 Athabasca Street East coachable: 1. Ask for feedback. 2. Ensure you understand 306-692-0533 the feedback. 3. Thank the giver of feedback and confirm Minister: Rev. Jim Tenford your desire for more. 4. Request suggestions on how to Music Director: Karen Purdy improve. 5. Welcome tough or unexpected feedback. As th , 2017we will develop a firm Sunday, May we hear and apply this14 teaching, Worship Service 10:30am foundation, ready for whatever comes our way. & Sunday School

When Paralympian Jimmy Pelletier rolled through Saskatchewan during his Canadian cycling tour, he had completed 25 per cent of his trip but was already at 60 per cent of his fundraising goal. La Traversée Jimmy Pelletier, or, Jimmy Pelletier: The Journey, started in Vancouver in early May and will end by mid-July in Halifax. Pelletier and six other cyclists — plus a team of drivers, a cook, physiotherapist, and massage therapist — will travel 7,200 kilometres in 67 days, as they attempt to raise $500,000 for people suffering from autism spectrum disorders and physical or intellectual disabilities. Pelletier has invited all Canadians to keep him rolling by sponsoring one or more kilometres for $25 each. To follow the journey, visit en/. The trip’s slogan is “Anything is Possible/Tout est Possible.” “We had hoped that by the end of Saskatchewan, we would have 2,000 (kilometres) sold, but we are up to 4,000 (kilometres) sold. So we are very proud of that,” explained Clemente Lemieux, Pelletier’s translator, a fellow cyclist, and the CEO for the Quebec non-profit organization Patro Roc-Amadour. Pelletier, 42, began volunteering eight years ago with Patro Roc-Amadour, a group that supports handicapped children. In 2014, Pelletier began an annual charity event called La Randonnée Jimmy Pelletier, where he cycles across Quebec using a hand bike to raise funds for Patro. The 2006 Paralympian athlete decided to cycle across Canada this year to celebrate the fifth anniversary of that event. The trip has been tougher than originally anticipated, Lemieux said. The team knew the Rockies would be difficult. Pelletier — injured in a car accident at age 19 in 1996 and left a paraplegic — has no use of his abs or legs for additional strength, so he has only his arms to keep him going. “I feel very well. In good shape. I feel good physically and mentally,” Pelletier said through Lemieux. “We’re all together, so that makes it easier.” On average Pelletier and his team will cycle 170 kilometres per day. Their longest stretch was 186 kilometres from Fort Qu’Appelle to Russell, Man. It’s difficult on Pelletier’s body when they have to cycle more than 150 kilometres per day, said Lemieux. He can’t raise his arms at the end of the day, which is why the physiotherapist has to work on his shoulders, arms and back. “Jimmy is an amazing person,” continued Lemieux. He is an inspiration to many who are physically challenged.

He is resilient, determined and willing to persevere. While everyone faces difficulties, everyone should keep working and believing in themselves. Pelletier’s hand bike has no suspension, so it takes a toll on his body. It’s also difficult for him to avoid potholes while riding on the shoulder of the highway. Hitting these rough patches, rocks and gravel stretches the day to 12 hours from six, since instead of riding between 25 to 28 kilometres per hour, the team slows down to 12 to 15 km/h. His head is 16 inches above the ground since he sits so low in his hand bike. That means Pelletier is blasted with fumes and noise from passing vehicles. With a laugh, Lemieux stated that Pelletier’s face “is not as beautiful” at the end of the day. Throughout the trip, they have given money to charities and also stopped to speak about the journey. Pelletier met with former Humboldt Bronco Ryan Straschnitzki in Calgary, while he visited with students at École Ducharme while in Moose Jaw. On the day Pelletier was in Moose Jaw, it was the oneyear anniversary of when he reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro — which is 5,900 metres in height — in five days using an adaptive mountain bike. “It was a great experience,” Pelletier said. “The challenge was to adapt myself to the altitude because I never knew how my body (would) react …We have to live every day because you never know what is going to happen.”

BERTHELET Marion Josephine Morris


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Kenneth Mark Roney on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019, with his family by his side, in Moose Jaw, SK after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Ken was born at Imperial, SK on April 28th, 1942 to Ralph and Mary Roney. He was predeceased by his parents; sisters, Sal Winona Semple and Linda Luypaert; brother, Gordon Roney; brothers-in-law, Gerald Luypaert and Max Slater; granddaughter, Autumn Roney; and in-laws, William and Wanda Springer. Ken leaves to mourn his passing, his wife of 52 years, Loraine; sons, Aron Roney (Marlene) and Jason (Tracy) Roney; daughter, Stacey (Brad) Moser; his beloved grandchildren who he was so proud of: Kalen, Brennan, and Elizabeth Roney; Alyssa, Brooklyn, and Hailey Roney; and Bailey, Jadyn, and Adysen Moser; sisters, Terry Slater (Ken) and Judy (Don) McGowan; brother, Gerry (Carol) Roney; brotherin-law, Ian Semple; in-laws: Aldene (Glen) Campbell, Sandy (Bill) Crawford, Len (Patti) Springer, and Dave (Della) Springer; as well as many nieces and nephews. Ken loved being a business owner and working at the lumberyard. He appreciated all the people who came into his life because of it but his first love was his family. He worked so hard but always put family first. Ken would go without new shoes or a new truck, but made it a priority to create special family time with his kids and later all of his grandchildren. Whether it was our annual trip to Clear Lake, Disneyland or Florida, he loved taking part in pool antics, card games, and the occasional ice cream treat. Ken was never one to pass up a good round of golf with his family or long-time friends. He was happiest when he was able to BBQ for his family and friends. He was always generous with his time, drinks and jokes. Ken was the kindest, most generous and genuine person we had the privilege to know. Words cannot express our gratitude to Dr. Geyer, Dr. Miller and the incredible staff at Pioneer Lodge for the professional care and compassion shown to Ken and the entire family throughout this difficult journey! A Celebration of Ken’s Life was held on Monday, June 10th, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. in Hillcrest Apostolic Church, 1550 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK with Eleanor Akins officiating. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Ken’s name may be made to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation, 55 Diefenbaker Drive, Moose Jaw, SK S6J 0C2 or the Pioneer Lodge Palliative Care Room, 1000 Albert St, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 2Y2. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. James Murdock, Funeral Director 306-693-4550

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our dear mom, Marion Josephine Morris (nee Fasken) on Friday, June 7, 2019 in her 93rd year at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. Mom graduated as a Registered Nurse from Toronto Western Hospital in 1949. She worked at Toronto Western Hospital from 1949 to 1954 before venturing over to London, England to work in nursing for 18 months.  She returned to her nursing in Canada in 1955 and continued her nursing career until she was 68 years old. It was at Toronto Western Hospital where she met her future husband and our father, Jack Charles Morris whom she married in December 1956.  Mom considered in addition to her nursing degree, her greatest accomplishment was having a family. We are so grateful and consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have been raised by such a strong, loving, and kind mother. Predeceased by her husband and our father Jack, dear sister Peggy (Andrew) Ker, nephew David Ker and her dear brother, William Fasken and his wife, Ellie.  Survived by her children, Margaret (Brian) Doherty, Muriel (Les) Buhr, son David, Mary Anne (Norm) Foote, and Susie (Jay) Keeler and beloved grandmother to nine and great-grandmother of two; a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews and their families.

Joseph Gerald Berthelet (Jerry to his childhood friends, Joe in later life), only son of Sheila Hala, passed away peacefully and without pain in the Regina General Hospital on Saturday, June 1st, 2019. He was predeceased by his father, Joseph Berthelet; sister, Lisa Edey; niece; Natasha Edey; niece, Lili Taylor; and cousin, Mac Berthelet. Jerry leaves behind his mother, Sheila; sisters, Kim and Robin; half-sister, Darryl-Anne and children Melissa, Megan and Jake; and various other relatives to mourn his passing. Jerry tried his hand at sports, played the coronet and piano but loved and enjoyed making art the most. He was blessed with many talents and created some amazing artwork. He found his best happiness when employed by the CPR and until his injury, lived a normal life. He chose a different path, but he leaves behind people he loved, and who did love him. He is at rest now, united with his father and the Lord. A Private Service was held on Friday, June 7th, 2019 at St. Aidan Anglican Church in Moose Jaw, SK with Reverend Deacon Arleen Champion officiating. Flowers are gratefully declined.
