Duck Derby returns this July Scott Hellings

Thousands of yellow rubber ducks will soon be returning to the Crescent Park serpentine. The Moose Jaw Early Bird Lions will hold their annual Duck Derby on Sunday, July 7 in Crescent Park. The fun will start around noon, with a performance from the Band City Band, but at 2 p.m. it will be time to get down to business. “What we do is we dump the ducks into a big pile in the serpentine. There are always some children around, so we let them take turns pulling out the winner. It’s kind of a different system,” said club president Wayne McGregor. “It works pretty well and the kids have fun.” It may indeed be fun, but there are some serious prizes at stake, too. First prize is $2,000. There are also prizes of $1,000, $500, two prizes of $250, and 10 prizes of $100 each for a grand total of $5,000 to be awarded.

The event raises funds for the club. For the most part, these funds support local projects. For example, last year the Early Bird Lions provided a $10,000 donation to furnish the Heartland Hospice Palliative Room at Pioneer Lodge. Of course, the club also participates in the Lions’ national programs, such as the Dog Guides. Feeling lucky? Only 3,000 tickets will be sold, and McGregor says that tickets are going fast. “It gives you a pretty good chance of winning,” said McGregor. “I think we are going to sell out — we are getting close. Sales are really great this year.” The cost is $5 per duck. Ducks will be on sale this week at Superstore throughout the day. Once again, the Lions will also be selling ducks during Sidewalk Days. Be sure to purchase your duck for an opportunity to win!

Popcorn and rock climbing at Family Fun Day There was a lineup for snacks and rock climbing at the first Family Fun Day hosted by the Seventh Day Adventist Church on June 9, and volunteers were glad to see so much interest from the kids. The day started with a pancake breakfast, before moving over to the park for a ton of other cool things to check out. A rock-climbing wall brought in through Camp Whitesand just outside of Theodore, SK, had no shortage of brave souls waiting to try it out. The wall was suited for all ages and sizes and was a hit with the crowd. Those waiting in line to do some climbing were able to check out the face painting booth, take a go in one of the bouncy castles, or grab a snack of popcorn, ice cream, or cotton candy. The Moose Jaw Fire Department also brought one of their fire trucks over, giving kids a tour of the inside and answering questions. The event was simply meant to connect with families in the city, said one of the church’s pastors, Troy Guderyan. Everything was free to attend and run by volunteers. “We just want to reach out to the community and something that we want to do just to let the kids have fun and let people know that we’re here,� said Guderyan. Judging by the crowd, he’s hopeful to bring the free festivities back again next year. “I think we will probably look at doing this as an annual Family Fun Day, for the community, and the way it went this year, I think we’ll be excited about next year,� said Guderyan.

Crop, hay land moisture deterioration sharp over two month period By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express Crops are emerging out of dry soils across Saskatchewan with often patchy growth. Reports of premature flowering of canola and mustard from heat stress have come from southern Saskatchewan, according to the Saskatchewan Agriculture crop report for the week ended June 10. Rain is still needed badly. Almost an inch fell in the Pense district with some showers west towards Moose Jaw during the

week. In the South Country a stretch from Rockglen to Hazenmore got about one-tenth of an inch of rain. Topsoil moisture has deteriorated significantly since May 1 when nearly twothirds of the province’s cropland was rated adequate. Now only one-fifth is rated adequate. In southeastern Saskatchewan which in-

cludes Moose Jaw, adequate topsoil moisture has been cut by one-half to 42 per cent. Moisture short and very short pasture and hay lands stand at over two-thirds compared with one-tenth in May. Provincially, cropland soil moisture has slipped from 62 per cent adequate to 21 per cent. Pasture and hay land moisture conditions

grew worse with few provincial regions rating adequate. In the southeast just over half is very short with the rest short. In the southwest 89 per cent of pasture and hay land is rated short or very short. Ranchers say the native grass, usually green until July, is growing brown and crunchy underfoot.

Deal between police board and CUPE members finalized Larissa Kurz

After a long negotiation, an agreement between the Moose Jaw Board of Police and the support workers represented by CUPE is finalized, including most notably a pay increase that will continue through 2020. Being a four-year agreement that began in 2017, the new terms will affect workers through to 2020, when a new agreement will then be discussed. But for now, support workers at the police station — including dispatchers and those taking local calls and reports — will see a wage increase of 1.5 per cent for 2017

Where Friends Send Friends!

and 2018, 1.5 per cent for 2019, 2.25 per cent in 2020. There is also an additional increase of 1.5 per cent at the end of the term, to provide equality of wages between those who do the same job in different cities. Stacey Landin, president for CUPE Local 9 here in Moose Jaw, is pleased with the results. “It’s good feeling, it’s a positive thing for folks,� said Landin. “I believe people are pleased to have reached the result that we did. And certainly, the Local is proud of what’s been done, so we’re happy about it.�


She noted that many people don’t realize that there are quite a few civilian staff members at our local police station, many of which people interact with every time they make a call there. “There’s around 40 people that it will affect, so it’s a good number of folks that are, I’m sure, pleased about the results of this agreement being settled,� said Landin. “They serve a very important role to our public and certainly to public safety, so we’re proud of the work they do and we’re pleased that they reached a good agreement.�

Vanier Vikings prepare for Valhalla with leadership retreat Larissa Kurz

A group of Vanier Collegiate students have once again stepped up to the plate this year to take on leadership positions for the fall, and they were the lucky crew to test run a new type of leadership development weekend put together by Vanier staff. Rather than the usual activities and training being hosted at the high school, these students headed out to Buffalo Pound for a two-day leadership retreat, titled Camp Valor. The retreat took them through a number of different challenges, meant to develop skills like team building, problem-solving, and communication. It also had them bonding as a team, and stepping outside the comfort of their school. Leanne Meili, academic advisor and one of the organizing staff, was excited to give the new format a try, and she wasn’t disappointed with the results. “We’re really proud of the two days because it was something that we’re hoping to be able to do for a number of years,� said Meili. “There’s so much value in taking them out of the school and out of their comfort zone, they learn so much.� The purpose of the training was to prepare them to host the annual Valhalla event in September, which the students have been planning themselves since March. Valhalla is a fun weekend welcome to incoming grade nine students to Vanier before classes start and is orga-

Another activity was a grocery bag full of challenge prompts, that had students working together to build things out of materials like spaghetti and marshmallows, or Lego. (supplied)


About 20 students went on the inaugural trip, while about 60 students have signed on as leaders for Valhalla. (supplied)

One of the challenges was an escape-room-esque backpack challenge, which had clues that led them all over Buffalo Pound, and was a group favorite. (supplied)

nized and run by a group of the grade twelve students. Abby Dueck, Sydney Wells, and Kyle Gotana — three students who went to Camp Valor — are excited to be leaders at Valhalla 2019 and felt that the camping retreat was a great experience. “[The camping trip] was great, because some of these people, I never thought I would talk to, and then I went on this camping trip and I became closer with them,� said Wells. “It was tough, but you really had to learn teamwork and to work with people that you’ve never

worked before.� “I got to meet new people, that I’d never really talked to or whatever,� agreed Gotana. “Above all, it’s going to be easier for Valhalla, working with other people.� Dueck agreed and added that it was a chance to try out their problem-solving skills as a team for Valhalla in the fall, which is something that she really wanted to be a part of as a senior. “What I liked about [Valhalla] most was that it connected the grade twelves with the grade nines,� said Dueck. “I thought it’d be a really good idea for me, as a grade twelve, to get involved and show the ropes to a few grade nines.� Meili sees the camping trip as becoming their annual leadership event, as she and the other staff there saw the students really grow into their skills, even if they didn’t realize it themselves. “They were all working on these skills, but it wasn’t kind of thrown down their throat,� said Meili. “It’s really nice to see that growth in them.� “That’s the key, is empowering these young people because they’re going to go out into the world and do their thing, and if we can provide them with some skills to do so, that’s the goal,� added Meili.

Many of the activities the group worked through were things they can take to Valhalla with them, and work through with the grade nine students there as well. (supplied)

It happens to the best of them, across genres and social standings, no matter what age or ethnicity. It’s impolite and often vulgar and disgusting, but what can you do when you have HAFE (High Altitude Flatus Explosion) and there’s no where to go to sneak one out or to have reprieve from others who are expulsing gasses beyond their control? Joan Ritchie There’s the lavatory to go to EDITOR when pressures’ mounting, but the odds of making a safe breakaway are probably zero to nil because there are usually half-a-dozen individuals lined-up with the same thing in mind. From a fairly frequent airplane traveller, I can attest that even I have complained about the guy behind me continually cracking them…silent and deadly…or was it the guy sitting next to me, or even me for that matter? No lady would dare let one go knowingly in closed quarters, or would she? It’s hard to pin-point exactly where a poo-poo demon surfaces because the air on an airplane is confined and circulated. It’s just a guess, at that. My first words of warning are, “When in Mexico, do not do what the Mexicans do! Be selective in your food choices for at least a couple days in advance of flying… Montezuma’s revenge can bite you in the butt and you will have to suffer the humiliation, along with nearly asphyxiating yourself and those around you!” Been there, done that! Apparently, an increased need to pass gas is a common occurrence on a plane. Airplane cabins are pressurized to between 6,000 and 8,000 feet, and is a significant altitude change for your body. Just as air in your water bottle expands at higher altitudes, the gas in your intestines expands too, taking up about 30 percent more room than usual…then, it needs to escape. You are not alone when it comes to squeezing your sphincters to save your embarrassment; it happens to the best of them! On the positive side, there are a few things airline travellers can do to help alleviate feeling gassy and bloated during a flight. Drink plenty of water. Avoid eating too much or foods that can produce gas, prior and during the flight. Salty and fatty foods should be avoided to help combat bloating. Stay away from caffeine, alcohol and fizzy drinks. Magnesium, activated charcoal and probiotics can help to diminish the effects if taken in advance and even during a flight; even tums and an anti-gas over-the-counter medication can ease the pressure and mental anguish that a person goes through on an airplane if circumstances blow out of proportion. In all of this, it’s a ‘grin-and-bear-it’ opportunity so deny, deny, deny and blame it on the other guy. He probably thinks it’s him anyways.

World Refugee Day 2019 Refugees are people with families, education, and lives who have been forced to flee their home countries for fear of persecution, imprisonment, torture, or death. They had homes they cannot return to even though they wish too, and have the courage to move to a new country, with a new language and customs, to create a home for themselves. They wish to give back to the community and have their community understand them. World Refugee day gives the world a chance to focus on the plight of those forced to flee, their resolve to survive and flourish, and how they, the host community, can become a more inclusive and welcoming community. The #withrefugees campaign, which started in 2016 in conjunction with World Refugee Day, encourages citizens around the world to sign a petition, to make sure every child gets an education, every refugee family has somewhere safe to live, and every refugee can work or learn new skills to support their families. It strives to provide support and awareness for those individuals who have struggled and are working to overcome that struggle, and gives the community a chance to welcome refugees to our community and acknowledge their struggles. Refugees face many challenges, first in the act of fleeing, then in being an asylum seeker or having refugee status in a new country, and finally in resettlement or reintegration into their host country that they have been granted permanent status in. When fleeing persecution or violence, refugees have to often make precarious decisions that can result in financial or physical harm. If a refugee arrives in a safe location, they then can face difficulties, such as intolerance and discrimination, the inability to

get a job, or the fear of corruption in the host country that can result poorly for them. Once a refugee has been accepted for resettlement to a new country, they have to deal with issues such as learning a new language, school and career recognition, recovery from past trauma, culture shock, navigating an unfamiliar system, providing for their family, and more. World Refugee Day gives others the chance to understand more about these challenges and how we can help. To give a better understanding of the scale of refugee issues in the world, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) states that in 1997 there were 33.9 million displaced people in the world, and in 2016, that number had risen to 66.5 million people, with the majority of the rise occurring between 2012 and 2015 by the Syrian conflict, along with conflicts in the region such as Iraq and Yemen, as well as in Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, and Sudan. Of the 66.5 million displaced people, 22.5 million are refugees, half of which are under the age of 18. In 2016, the world resettled 189,300 refugees, which is less than 1% of refugees. This year Moose Jaw Multicultural Council (MJMC) will hold a World Refugee Day event on June 20th, with more details are to follow! MJMC works hard with the community to welcome and support all newcomers, including refugees to Moose Jaw, to become successful members of the community. In 2018, MJMC welcomed 57 Government Assisted Refugees from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Syria. For more stats and information visit

Dear Tunnels of Moose Jaw, Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of visiting the “Passage to Fortune” for a second time in the past ten years. It is great to see the tour grow in presence and content over the years. In light of the recent experience and surface research available on your website, there is something I would like to draw to your attention in regards to the tour. The central message that is communicated in the tour is that immigrants from China were brought in and exploited by ‘white’ people. From an outside perspective, it appears that a similar narrative is occurring today with the “Passage to Fortune” tour - where ‘white’ people are taking a story of Chinese hardship and gaining financial profit from it. Unconsciously (or otherwise), this may be reviving the errors of our collective past albeit in a milder, yet noteworthy, form. In light of the above, may I suggest that the Tunnels can

be a body that seeks to encourage the integration of immigrants? This would parallel the message that is communicated in the tour and provide community-minded substance to the establishment - where in the past we had taken advantage of immigrants and now we encourage the integration of immigrants. This positive development can be in the form of providing a small donation from each ticket sale to a non-profit that carries this as their main agenda. I would encourage the board or members of the Tunnels to lead the way to prevent past blemishes from re-occurring and be a leader in this regard. I look forward to visiting the tour again in the near future and seeing the further evolution of the Tunnels. With sincere regards, A proud Saskatchewan-born Chinese-Canadian, Vance Fok

Riverview Collegiate’s Rock Band jams out on the streets of Moose Jaw Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Classic and modern rock music floated throughout downtown Moose Jaw, as a group of students from Riverview Collegiate recently showcased the skills they had developed during the semester. Led by teacher James Irving, 13 students rocked out in front of John’s Music on Main Street on June 12 for more than an hour while performing songs by acts such as Audioslave, Tone Loc, and Bryan Adams. Every year, students in the Rock Band class perform the songs they learned during the semester in public; last year they jammed in front of Gemmell’s Shoes. The collegiate’s rock band featured two drum kits, two bass guitars, a guitar, three singers, a xylophone, maracas and the sweet, sweet sound of a cowbell. “Each year kids from the semester busk and get an idea of what a poor musician faces in the world,” joked Irving, who also played guitar. “It’s (also) a good chance for them to experience what it is like to be a musician who is not on the big stage.” Since the group was busking, a small suitcase was laid out so passersby could drop in money. Last year the group raise $27; this year it generated $125.40. Grade 12 student Bailey Hittinger was nervous before the group began, but once the first few cords were strummed, he became more comfortable behind the drum kit and in front of the microphone.

Riverview Collegiate teacher James Irving and student Hayley Cowan add their sound to the song Funky Cold Medina, during a public performance on June 12. Photo by Jason G. Antonio The Rock Band performed for friends and family in early spring but playing in public is different, he continued. However, once those who were passing by began clapping along, he was put at ease. “It was a cool experience, especially to be downtown,” added Hittinger. This was Hittinger’s second year playing drums. He particularly enjoyed playing along to a rap song this year. He also liked learning new instruments; there were enough students in the class that each could rotate through instruments for new experiences. The students performed 10 songs in 90

minutes while on the street. They originally learned eight songs in March, but cut those after performing them at school to learn new ones. “This is my Grade 12 year, so it’s like, ‘That’s it.’ This is my last time doing this,” said Hittinger. The group will perform for the rest of their school one more time, while their final exam will see them perform their 18 songs for three-straight hours. Riverview Collegiate’s Rock Band program — now in its eighth year — is one of the few such courses in Saskatchewan, said Irving. Most schools feature a concert band or jazz band. Students in the program learn about all the usual aspects of music, such as reading sheet music and what goes into performing a song. However, they play Audioslave instead of Bach.

“Nothing against concert band or jazz band,” Irving joked. The group did pretty well since this was their first time performing in public, said Grade 10 student Josie Monsees. She was particularly nervous since this was her first year in Rock Band. “It’s actually pretty good,” said Monsees, who sings lead vocals and also plays the drums. She explained that her brother helped her get into drums as a way to deal with the death of a family member due to cancer. Performing brought her out of her comfort zone, so she felt at ease once she joined the class. The group performed well, echoed Irving. They were lucky to escape the rain, while the sound was nearly perfect. They also earned more money than ever, so “it was a success all around.”

A Nice Kid Cage


429 River St. W. Moose Jaw

Last fall we had some new neighbours move into their newly built house, a few doors down the block. They have kids, so there have been some changes in da hood. Those changes are mostly related to noise. While some grouchy old neighbours grumble, I for one welcome the sound of by Dale “bushy” three children playing in Bush their yard. It is far more appealing than another neighbour who insists on playing Creedence Clearwater Revival when she gardens although I don’t mind some classic rock and roll. As a musician, I am okay with folks who enjoy music, but I believe she has only one CCR recording and when she plays it over and over I worry about the plants in her garden and how they will be affected. These beautifully noisy kids range in age from about 9 (the oldest brother) to the youngest brother (about 4) with a sister in between and they do spend a great amount of time in their yard. That seems to buck the trend of children spending more time with computers and video games than with the great outdoors, but that requires outdoor toys and equipment for those

diversions. Computers and video games can cost a fortune but so can modern outdoor toys. There is no shortage of new ways for modern kids to be distracted. I think that the perfect outdoor children’s toy should be economical, easy to use and maybe most importantly…no batteries required. There seems to be a standard piece of backyard equipment that satisfies all that criteria, but it can be expensive… and dangerous, which makes it a perfect kid’s toy. A trampoline gets bouncy high marks for entertainment, ease of operation and maybe most importantly many diverse uses. The trampoline was developed in the 1930’s as a training device for gymnastics. It wasn’t long before bouncing became popular as recreation and then its own sport. The spring-loaded contraption was popularized in the early sixties with the development of Bounce Parks which was a place where you could go hurt yourself and maybe lose some teeth, after you signed a waiver of course. The high cost of dental repairs might have been a reason tramp parks became less popular in the 70’s, but with better healthcare these days those old outdoor bounce parks are regaining acceptance and moving indoors. You still have to sign a waiver which should endear the sport to daredevils, but you can now risk your life in the comfort of you own backyard as manufacturers adapt the trampoline to the consumer’s needs.

My beautiful bride has her own trampoline that she/ we can exercise on in the basement called a rebounder. I have to admit, it is an exercise tool that really does get the blood coursing through the veins. After about 10 minutes of bouncing I am a pooped puppy and ready for a recovery nap but Mrs. B can bounce for what seems to be an eternity; she is a fit dedicated bouncer. The kids down the street must be in Olympic athlete condition because they are constantly on the bounce for hours. Kid’s trampolines now come with safety netting which has reduced the danger factor and has given mothers peace of mind for a few reasons, safety of course. With some modifications (locks and feeding/ watering slots) that netting can be used as a nice kids’ cage which allows a parent to always be aware of where the kids are. With regular feeding and watering, they will continue to grow and mom can get her housework completed. The trampoline has been around for decades with its popularity coming and going, but one thing for sure…it has had its ups and downs and will continue to bounce back.

Realty Executives embraces recent changes in ownership Larissa Kurz

The team at Realty Executives has settled into their new location at 70 Athabasca St. W, just in time for a small change in ownership. Co-owner Mike Botterill has taken over sole ownership of the business, buying partner Jeff Markewich’s share of the company as he was looking for a change. “I’m optimistic about the future of Moose Jaw, and that’s why I decided, when I had the opportunity, to buy the franchise out and become the sole owner. I was excited to do that,” said Botterill about the decision. The pair opened the franchised business in Moose Jaw in 2010, after working together previously; Botterill himself has been in the realty field since 1997. Botterill feels good about continuing doing business here in Moose Jaw, as it’s his hometown and he sees a promising future. “I just love Moose Jaw, I love the people here; they really are as friendly as they say,” said Botterill. “I think there’s a lot of positive things happening in Moose Jaw, [such as] the new power plant that’s coming here, I think it’s really

going to boost our economy.” Botterill also revealed that the team is expanding to include LJ Agencies Ltd., whose staff will be moving over to Realty Executives in the next few weeks. “As [Larry Mathieson, owner], winds down his business there, they’re going to join us here,” said Botterill. “We’re really excited for that, and I know they’re going to fit in really well with our team.” The real estate field is continuously evolving, but Botterill and his team have kept up with the new trends; all of his agents are mobile, traveling to clients and so on. “[Being mobile] isn’t the future of real estate, that’s the present. That’s where we’re at right now,” said Botterill. “We’re excited to be a leader in that, in the real estate industry, as far as how we do our technology.” Realty Executives has been busy settling into their new location, but not too busy to begin planning a grand opening celebration, the details of which Botterill hopes to pin down and announce in the next few weeks.

Local cadet returns from UK deployment Larissa Kurz

This past April, a cadet from the local chapter of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets program spent two weeks on a training ship in the United Kingdom — the only Saskatchewan cadet selected to take part in the deployment. Chief Petty Officer First Class Parker Boczkowski has just finished his sixth and final year with the Cadets and was excited to travel to the UK for such a unique training exercise. Now that he’s returned, he finds that the trip was well worth the experience. Part of his time in the UK was spent touring London before the crew drove to Portsmouth and boarded the TS Royalist, a British cadet training ship that can take up to 24 cadets on each deployment. CPO1 Boczkowski found the training interesting but was most affected by the route the ship took during the two-week exercise; they sailed the English Channel to France, passing by Juno Beach in Normandy and witnessing the landing zone troops endured on D-Day. “It was amazing. The fact that my grandfather fought on those beaches and I was sailing past them was a great experience,” said Boczkowski. Other than that connection, Boczkowski found that the trip afforded him some other connections as well. “The people on the ship I was getting to

You just make great friendships.” This was Boczkowski’s final year in the cadet program, aging out after six years of service. At the recent Annual Ceremonial Review, Boczkowski was presented with a certificate noting his time in ser-

vice, from Commanding Officer, Acting Sub-Lieutenant Nicole Kutsak. He also received his medal for six years of service, and the Lord Strathcona Medal recognizing his excellence in the program — the highest civilian award that can be granted to a cadet. As for what comes next, Boczkowski indicated he intends to enlist in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Trinos Menswear, Bib and Tucker Womenswear hold grand opening Moose Jaw’s newest clothing store seeing brisk business since opening in April Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw’s newest men’s and women’s clothing stores held their official grand opening on June 8th. Two businesses, Trinos Menswear and Bib and Tucker Ladieswear are under the same roof at 33 High Street. While the businesses opened on April 2, June 8th marked their grand opening and marked a steady run of success since day one. “It’s going really well; we’re excited to be here,” said Gaynor Novak with Bib and Tucker. It’s awesome because maybe she comes in looking for something and he finds a shirt or he’s looking for something and she finds a dress. Or they can be trying things on and he can show her or the other way around.” That’s on top of what the two stores have to offer, with both featuring a wide selection of items ranging from sports jackets, suits and dress shirts to soft denim and t-shirts from Trinos; dresses, shoes, purses and a wide selection of other clothing from Bib and Tucker.

the aforementioned large stores. “Basically I just want to see all the small businesses in Moose Jaw grow and prosper, and small businesses not to go away,” Johnson said. “Just the feeling and attraction, I just want it to stay because there’s a lack of human connection now with self-checkouts and it’s taking jobs, so I think it’s important.” The stores are open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

Trino’s Phillippe Levesque, manager Kim Martin, owner Trina Johnson and Keaton Fader pause for a photo during their grand opening. “We offer the kind of service where couples can shop together in one place and we have a bit of everything for everyone,” Trinos owner Trina Johnson said. “It’s a convenient time-saver for people, as well since we offer local service you don’t see

in big box stores. “(Plus) We make sure everything looks great and fits great and if it needs tailoring, we can do that too.” Both have a heavy focus on supporting local businesses, especially in the face of

Clean business model doesn’t mean lower profits among top 50 Profits and productivity don’t have to be sacrificed by corporations with environmentally-friendly objectives. That appears the message drawn from the list of top 50 best corporate citizens in Canada, as rated by Corporate Knights Magazine. The best corporate citizens are rated on a long list of criteria ranging from the ratio of CEO pay to average workers, clean revenue, board and executive gender diversity, sus-

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







tainable executive pay, productivity per unit of emissions, employee turnover, injuries and fatalities, and intensity of energy, carbon and water use. Number One on the list is the Co-operators, headquartered in Ontario but with extensive interests in Saskatchewan. Number 48 is Farm Credit Canada, headquartered in Saskatchewan. The $41 billion asset Co-operators offers business property, casualty and life insurance with a business model balancing profits with community needs. The company was the first in Canada to offer water damage insurance in vulnerable areas and to offer storm surge protection policies in coastal areas. Generous employee benefits such as mental health benefits and a female CEO helped land the top ranking. Some of the measures used to evaluate the best 50 corporate citizens are rather interesting when compared with operations of the best 50 Canadian corporations. The CEO-to-worker pay ratio of the best corporate citizens is $66 to $1 but sits at $81 to $1 for the best 50 large companies. The revenue per cubic metre of water used, $17,535 versus $14,774, shows better efficiency. The waste productivity ratio (revenue per tonne of waste)

amounts to $9.98 million versus $3.45 million for large corporations. The best corporate citizens have 32.1 per cent of women board members compared with 2.3 per cent. In women senior executives the best corporate citizens have 22.7 per cent versus 16.4 per cent. And the best corporate citizens generate 34.9 per cent of revenue from clean products compared with 3.9 per cent for the top 50 corporations. Surprisingly, a number corporations unexpectedly placed among the best 50 corporate citizens. Miner/ore processor Teck Resources earned fourth place in the standings with oil and gas producer/retailer Suncor ranking 15th on the list. CNR placed 20th with Catalyst Paper, a forestry/paper maker, ranked 22nd. Enbridge, pipelines and utilities, is 39th. Gold miner IAMgold ranked 41st with Canfor Pulp and Paper 47th while meat processor Maple Leaf Foods came in 49th. Thirteen of the top 50 are in the energy generating utility business, mostly in electricity and natural gas energy generation. Eight are banks or insurance companies. The lowest CEO-to-worker ratio of 2.4 to 1 was Farm Credit Canada while Vancouver City Savings Credit Union had the highest percentage of women on the board of directors at 89 per cent. York University from Ontario, led senior women executives at 70 per cent. Ron Walter can be reached at

School class reunions, car show featured at Briercrest Heritage Day By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Old schoolmates renewed acquaintances at the Briercrest Museum heritage day with a reunion of classes from the 1970s. Numerous museum visitors could be seen sizing up others, then gazing at their name tags with comments like “I didn’t recognize you” or “You sure look good.” While former classmates talked, had home-made pie in the ice cream parlour and viewed artifacts in the eight room school converted to a museum with themes in each room, a show and shine was held outside. Formerly with International Harvester for 42 years, collector Ron Wheeler explained the features of his 1940 W4 McCormick tractor. It has the original gas intake about three feet from the steering wheel. Many IHC tractors had a gasoline intake raised up several inches, a company-wide retrofit made in 1981. “Fumes leaked from the (low-placed) in-

take and started fire,” he said. “One guy was smoking and caught fire. To avoid a class action lawsuit the company offered a new intake for every tractor.” Tim Chamberlin of Rouleau brought his flashy 1929 eight-cylinder Huppmobile car — just like the one his grandfather bought from the mayor of Milestone. In the drought and depression of the 1930s, money for gasoline was hard to come by so his grandfather converted the car to a trailer. “I always wanted one,” said Chamberlin. A friend was travelling to the Barrett-Jackson auto action in Arizona, saw a Huppmobile and mentioned it to him. “I was going down there so when I went there I thought I’d try and buy it.” “These are senior citizens’ cars,” commented one youngster while viewing with his father. Inside the museum, the Dusty Old Farmers played old time country music. Local


Just say no to… sugar? by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor Being of school age in the early 1980’s, I vaguely remember the “Just say no to drugs” era of the war on drugs movement started by Nancy and President Reagan, designed to combat drug addiction by getting kids to say no to anyone who would introduce them to recreational drug use. I remember television commercials of kids saying no to the drug pusher who was going to give them their first taste of crack cocaine, free of charge, just to get them addicted. Something happened to me recently at a local grocery store which reminded me of this. I love free stuff…who doesn’t? I do most of my grocery

Wheeler cowboy poet Fred Cockburn presented his poems outlining rural life and wrote a special poem for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. A new museum display honours three fallen soldiers from Briercrest with help from the Fallen Heroes project. Robert Roy McKibben who died in 1917, aged 20, serving with the 28th Battalion was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. James W. Cockburn, who left the family dairy farm in 1940 to enlist in the army, was killed during the Battle of Normandy in 1944 and awarded the France and Germany Star, War Medal, Canadian Volunteer Medal and 1939-45 Star.

shopping at a store which often gives a free item if you spend a certain amount during your visit. Over the years I have enjoyed free towels, blankets, barbecue utensils, soaps, face creams, scented candles and food containers, to name a few. My latest grocery store freebie made me a bit suspicious. It was a box that contained 5 different boxes cereal and 3 boxes of granola-type bars. These are items I would have never bought on my own simply because they are just too sweet. So sweet, in fact, that in 7 of the items, the second ingredient listed was sugar (or corn syrup). I understand the general marketing scheme of giving away a free item hoping the receiver would like it enough to actually purchase the item in the future, but my inner conspiracy theorist is suspicious that it’s just another way for the sugar industry to get our kids further hooked on sweets. Aha!! I see what you’re trying to do, big sugar-pushing business conglomerate! Now my suspicions are not unfounded as there is both a physiological and psychological basis for believing that sugar has potential for being an addictive substance.

diction as, “a complex condition, a brain disease that is manifested by compulsive substance use despite harmful consequence.” Some experts believe that sugar addiction is real, as cravings and impaired control exist in a similar fashion to alcohol, opioids and recreational drugs. Apparently, there are neurochemical similarities between sugar withdrawal and morphine withdrawal. “…compulsive substance use despite harmful consequence.” We all know sugar has harmful health consequences such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity. We are now beginning to understand that sugar is a compulsive substance. It would be socially unacceptable (and highly illegal) to give away free samples of crack cocaine, fentanyl or morphine while checking out at the grocery store, yet we don’t bat an eye when it’s sugar. Heck, most North American households give millions of tonnes of the stuff away to children every October 31st. Why is it the free item at the grocery store is never a bag of broccoli or an avocado? I still took my box o’ sugar, cuz it’s free you know!

Meet Me at the Fair

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

The Moose Jaw Hometown Fair returns this weekend with lots to see and do. It’s a sure sign of summer, and the annual Parade kicks off the festivities Thursday evening. The Hometown Fair is the first of many summer fairs, parades and exhibitions in smaller communities across Saskatchewan, as well as major trade shows such as Canada’s Farm Progress Show in Regina June 19 and 20. Growing up in the small community of Lipton, Saskatchewan, we rarely travelled to the city, much less to a fair. I remember going to the Regina “Buffalo Days” Exhibition for the first time. I only got to go on 2 rides, but I was just flabbergasted by it all. Today, fairs and exhibitions and summer events of various kinds continue to provide great family entertainment, contribute to our agricultural industry, and draw communities together. I enjoy participating in the Hometown Fair Parade each year. Having businesses, community clubs and groups construct fashionable floats, along with marching bands, horses and colourful apparel is all part of the fair festivities which are enjoyed by hundreds of citizens who line the streets in an exciting display of community pride. The Hometown Fair is organized because of the dedication of the board of directors, volunteers, and staff of

Hundreds lined Main Street last year for the annual Hometown Fair Parade, which featured a wide variety of floats and mobile displays of all kinds. MLA Warren Michelson for Moose Jaw North is an annual participant in Moose Jaw’s Hometown Parade. the Moose Jaw Exhibition Company. The Moose Jaw Exhibition Company was established in 1884 as an Agricultural Society to operate the local Hometown Fair. That’s 135 years of people working together to bring our community together. For many years, people from surrounding communities would take the train to come to the fair. The Hometown Fair still provides a chance to connect with friends, family and community just as it has for 135 years. The Moose Jaw Exhibition Company continues to be committed to the enhancement of the community by providing opportunities for quality entertainment, recreation and education. They host about 35 horse and livestock events annually. They are a member of the Saskatchewan Association of Agricultural Societies and Exhibitions (SAASE). SAASE partners with the

Sask. minister of agriculture staunchly defends rural semi driver training policy By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Saskatchewan Minister of Agriculture Dave Marit defended the provincial government’s decision requiring farmers and farm employees to obtain Class One licences to drive semis. A rancher at the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association conference wanted to know how that costly decision was made. “It’s a very emotionally-charged subject given the (Humboldt) accident of a year ago,” said the rancher. “Nobody has talked about any of the actual data that has justified the decision. Anybody that wants to challenge the decision is at risk of being labelled.” He said employees are hired, trained, comply with road and written tests but have high turnover rate. Marit assured the conference that cabinet struggled with the issue. “Quite frankly, I was of the same view that there should be a farmer class,” said Marit. “My mind was changed.” Three cabinet ministers each appointed a farmer to a committee that talked to farm groups and farmers. “The young farmer that I put on the committee called me and what he said set me back. “He said: ‘I feel that everybody should be at the same level – 120 hours training. If they weren’t that way and one of them was in an accident it wouldn’t matter whether he was qualified or not. They would just say he wasn’t qualified. It’s going to come

at a cost.’” Later his appointee reconsidered his view over the $10,000 to $15,000 cost, saying that was the only reason for shifting his view. Marit said his response was: “I don’t think that’s a valid reason. There is funding out there.” He said the government compromised with a required 40-hour training that allows drivers to go 100 km from the farm headquarters. “I don’t think there’s too many people who would say they shouldn’t be the same as everybody.” Existing farm semi drivers are grandfathered from the new regulations. Marit said the province has concerns about new federal transport/animal welfare legislation. One rancher said requirements to stop, rest, feed and water livestock on long hauls will end the Ontario market for Prairie cattle. “There is no place to stop.” He said a federal inspector told him the new law is about votes, not animal welfare. Saskatchewan NDP ag critic Jens Pedersen addressed the conference briefly saying his party wants to work together with the beef industry. When a rancher asked him to oppose the federal carbon tax, Pedersen said his party opposes the tax but Saskatchewan Party advertising makes it appear the NDP supports the tax.

The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to work with and support agricultural associations. The Farm Progress Show, for example, promotes innovation, education, collaboration and growth in the agriculture industry. Celebrating 42 years of success in 2019, Canada’s Farm Progress Show connects producers, manufacturers and buyers from around the world with the latest innovations in dryland farming. Forty thousand visitors from more than 50 countries will attend this year’s show. Each day, the Farm Progress Forum will bring in some of the top minds in agriculture, technology, business and operations for a keynote presentation. A daily Antique Tractor Pull is a popular attraction, and the “Empowering Women in Ag Conference” is back for the third year. Other highlights include nearly 700 exhibits, the livestock production and equipment showcase and new product launches and innovations. The Moose Jaw Hometown Fair was one of Saskatchewan’s first exhibitions, focused on promoting agriculture and building our community. Today, we have fairs and exhibitions of all kinds and sizes. Saskatchewan hosts major agricultural exhibitions like the Farm Progress Show, Agribition, and the Crop Production Show while smaller communities across the province continue to have their own versions of Moose Jaw’s Hometown Fair. These are part of the mosaic of Saskatchewan, and a great way to experience an historic tradition of our province.

Beef market analysts paints bleak uncertain price outlook to ranchers By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Cattle market analyst Anne Wasko described the market outlook as bleak to the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association convention. Producers need a sharp pencil this year with thinner margins and higher costs. Last year and year-to-date supply is higher in the U.S. and Canada. Canadian exports, similarly, are up with new and expanded markets Anne Wasko from trade agreements and buyers substituting for American beef. She said supply will apparently continue growing as Americans rebuild herds. Loss of American export markets to China could impact Canada’s 45 per cent of exports south of the border. Demand is flat in Canada and the U.S., making continued export market access the key. Wasko said she is sure many producers wish they had locked in calf prices of $2 to $2.28 a pound in April. African swine fever in China is a factor that will affect meat prices. The Chinese are the world’s biggest pork consumers averaging 88 pounds per person every year. With between 150 million to 200 million piglets lost to the swine fever, she said China will have a pork shortfall from 12 million to 15 million metric tonnes. All the global pork exports last year amounted to eight million metric tonnes so there is no way China can buy enough pork. “It seems some people will be going without protein.” The swine fever matter is bound to influence beef prices, she said. Other issues affecting beef prices are continuing trade wars, Canada/China disputes, tariffs, and feed grain prices. While the U.S. corn planting season has been interrupted by heavy rains, the crop could still be good. “The big question now is how many acres will we lose? Will the yield be down? By how much?” Corn price jolts from planting delays to $3.50 a bushel, and possibly $5, could encourage growers to plant more and take a risk with late maturing crops. Ron Walter can be reached at

Changes to drainage applications make process easier for RMs Larissa Kurz

Due to continued unresolved complaints, the Water Security Agency has reworked its policies surrounding water drainage applications to make the process easier for landowners and rural municipalities. Bryan Oborne, manager of the Southeast Regional Services at the WSA, encouraged RM representatives to submit approvals for drainage projects at the recent Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities conference on June 11. According to Oborne, addressing drainage problems is the key to protecting infrastructure for the future, even if it may impact things like roads in the present. Proper drainage can reduce strain on a municipality’s budget in terms of construction costs for culverts, bridges, and so on. Although this spring has thus far been a dry one, water drainage requires continued attention because it is a cyclical concern. Improper and unmonitored drainage

can impact soil erosion, water quality, animal habitats, and other biological components. The new approval system has been much quicker, although it requires a qualified individual to aid in putting together applications. Landowners no longer have to provide a legal easement in order to receive approval for a drainage project; joint applications, written agreements, registered easements, and land titles or other proof of ownership will suffice. The main focus of the new regulations is focusing on concerns about present and future impact of drainage, which are to be considered by landowners and RMs alongside the WSA. The SARM provincial conference saw 13 RMs from throughout Division 2 represented during the discussion and is one of several divisional meetings SARM hosts through the year.

RCMP presents focus for rural policing at SARM conference Larissa Kurz

In a presentation to a number of local rural municipality representatives, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mark Fisher detailed the ways in which rural enforcement is being addressed in the province. The overall data collected indicates that rural crime rates are down, and rural crime is not necessarily Saskatchewan specific; RCMP are seeing similar instances across all three prairie provinces. Priorities for the RCMP include addressing property crime in rural areas, decreasing domestic violence, gang violence, and organized crime, and continuing reconciliation efforts with Indigenous communities. Fisher noted that vacancy rates across the province are down to below 5%, a decrease from previous years, which he hopes will assist with poor response times that rural communities often experience. “We have some detachments with vast areas to cover, in rural municipalities, and

RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mark Fisher, presenting at the SARM conference for Division 2 municipalities. that’s the reality of being in the prairies,” said Fisher. RCMP are relying on communities reporting crime in their area, in order to accurately compile data to be analyzed and used to inform their future strategies. Fisher noted that the new Crime Watch

Advisory Network is showing real success for rural communities, as it provides residents with free up-to-date information about crimes in their area and alerts them if and when those crimes reach resolution. “[The RM representatives] talked about feedback on the value that they see in

receiving that information and the timeliness of it, and also the value of how we are able to close that loop,” said Fisher. “We haven’t signed members up through the Crime Network, so that was another takeaway, we’ll put into our next public meeting for our peers,” said Sacha Martens, reeve for the RM of Lake Johnston in the Mossbank area. Fisher also detailed a pilot project in effect called Larawan, which has placed tracking devices on equipment on rural properties that alerts the owner if that equipment is stolen. RCMP can then track where it is headed and follow. Thus far, the program is showing success and could potentially lower theft rates in rural areas. The SARM provincial conference saw 13 RMs from throughout Division 2 represented during the discussion and is one of several divisional meetings SARM hosts through the year.

Todd MacKay, Prairie Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Association, spoke warning about the potential carbon tax costs to representatives from various rural municipalities at the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities conference on June 11. MacKay laid out the numbers, to show RM representatives exactly how this tax could be affecting them. Currently, the carbon tax is adding 4.4 cents per litre of gasoline and 5.3 cents per litre of diesel. Next year, based on the program agreement, those numbers will increase to 11 cents per litre of gasoline and 13.4 cents per litre of Todd MacKay, prairie director from diesel. the Canadian Taxpayers Association, MacKay also offered a chart estimating the presenting at the SARM conference general total additional costs a smaller RM for Division 2 municipalities. could be looking at with this tax in 2019: an additional $1,100 on heat bills, $175 on power bills, and $4,000 and $500 on diesel and gasoline respectively. The ballpark numbers for a larger RM were even bigger, as MacKay noted that things like trucking and construction projects are all affected by the tax. MacKay encouraged RM representatives to budget for these costs to avoid surprises and to try and reduce both consumption of resources and spending, to offset having to swallow the extra expense. Sacha Martens, reeve for the RM of Lake Johnston in the Mossbank area, had a few questions about how other parts of Canada are addressing the issue. “[In terms of the carbon tax], it was about how the repeal process is going to work, and some of the angles that, provincially, different provinces are taking on the tax,” said Martens. The SARM, as well as the CTP, are both vocally opposed to the federal carbon tax imposed by the federal government in April. The Saskatchewan government is continuing to oppose the legislation — alongside Alberta, New Brunswick, and Ontario. Saskatchewan filed an appeal on the issue to the Supreme Court on May 31. The SARM provincial conference saw 13 RMs from throughout Division 2 represented during the discussion and is one of several divisional meetings SARM hosts through the year.

Credit Union closures move away from movement’s founding fabric

by Ron Walter

When the first credit unions began in Saskatchewan they adopted the principle of neighbours helping neighbours. Namely, the pooled money and savings in that community were mobilized by the local member-owned credit union to help sustain and build the community through loans and better re-

turns on savings. As the decades passed, credit unions became larger covering greater geographical regions. Professional managers took over much control of policy-making in the growing movement. When Moose Jaw Credit Union merged with Sherwood in Regina and Assiniboia the foundation was laid for a much larger operation. Indeed, Conexus and Innovation Credit Unions control most of the province’s credit union assets. The announcement in early June by Conexus to close

nine credit union branches came as a surprise to the public, and particularly to members in the communities affected. The reason for closures: 95 per cent of transactions in Conexus branches aren’t done in branches, leaving the expense of bricks and mortar to the credit union. Obviously this was a cost cutting measure based strictly on building profits. A television poll after the announcement indicated 44 per cent of respondents still use bricks and mortar banks. Another reason offered for the closures was that 20,000 Conexus members live in communities without branches. The closures will make life more complicated for residents in these communities. An automated teller can’t totally replace the need for humans serving older residents who are not computer-friendly. The closures will erase human contact with these members and eliminate some of the few jobs available in small communities. Two of those closures are in the Moose Jaw region: Mossbank, population 360; and Chamberlain, popula-

tion, 90. Mossbank Mayor Greg Nagel was quoted in media as shocked by the announcement. He and his community will fight the closure. Local businesses in all of these communities have relied on the credit union for walk-in deposits. Other financial institutions have long since deserted these towns. These closures, apparently taken by the numbers crunchers in the credit union headquarters and approved by the member-elected board, do not reflect the principle of neighbours helping neighbours – a principle that laid the foundation of the credit union movement. Sadly, these kinds of announcements will become more frequent as the spectre of digital automation looms, killing job opportunities and service. Small rural communities won’t be the only ones affected. Changes enabled by the digital age and new technology will sweep the globe. Ron Walter can be reached at

Ag experts caution on Byvarious impacts to land price increases Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express AGRIMART


Spiralling farmland values have benefitted farm wealth but slower rates of land price increases could be cause for concern. Land prices generally have a basis in productivity, commodity prices and interest rates. A shortage of land available for sale has driven land prices upwards as buyers chase fewer parcels.

Until now, price increases have reflected profits and production levels. The annual farmland values survey by Farm Credit Canada showed an eight per cent average price increase last year - the slowest rate in eight years. Given pressures from lower commodity prices, various trade wars and trade issues, speculation indicates land price increases could be half the 2018 level. As prices shift away from profitability and profits, land values are in a little balloon with the possibility of real issues if

interest rates and export markets change markedly. The 7.4 per cent increase in Saskatchewan farmland last year is above the national average and masks a chase for less productive land. Farmland in the southwest region with lighter soils traded up 12.5 per cent last year in a range from $800 an acre to $2,700 an acre. The higher rate was driven by scarcity of sale signs and strong cattle prices, leading agricultural experts to caution buyers to place more emphasis on land


I couldn’t live without my grasshopper...

productivity as future land price increases in case of tough times in future years. Saskatchewan farmland prices increased by 120 per cent since 2009, pushed by Alberta buyers where land is twice as high priced, as well as commodity prices, profits and aggressive-minded expansion plans. A sudden shift in the farm industry outlook could make the recent land purchases much less attractive. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Country musician Amy Nelson goes acoustic for partnered tour kickoff Larissa Kurz

In a partnership with Boston Pizzas across the province, Amy Nelson is joining with local radio stations to promote her new album, featuring the single “Hey Love” — which you may recognize if you’re a fan of The Band Perry, who have been singing it on their tours for a few years now. Nelson, who calls Regina home, performed some of her original songs in Moose Jaw recently, taking over the patio at the downtown Boston Pizza to give the crowd a taste of her talent and to spread the word about her new CD. She will be touring to the restaurant’s locations around the province for the next while, supporting their chosen charity through CD sales. Good Intentions is Nelson’s third album, and she will have copies available at Boston Pizza locations for $5.99 — a great price, considering $1 from each CD purchased will be going to the Dream Broker Summer Music Camps. “They’re across the province, in five different places, for kids with financial barriers, kids that wouldn’t be able to get the opportunity otherwise,” said Nelson. “It’s such a great fundraiser for this charity and

they’ve been so supportive of me.” Nelson is always busy, promoting both her own music and taking part in things like this. In 2011, she launched the Sing Like a STAR program, which teaches music lessons in Regina, Moose Jaw, and White City. Though Nelson doesn’t have a lot of spare time to teach music anymore; she regularly tours across Canada, the U.S. and over to Australia to perform, and is on the lineup for this year’s Dauphin Countryfest and Calgary Stampede. “It’s just kind of a bit of jumping all over, but it’s always fun. It’s always busy,” said Nelson. “Hey Love” was a hit when released last year in Australia, reaching #6 on country charts there, and Nelson hopes to see the single make waves back home in Canada as well. She has spent a lot of time working on her new album and is already excited to start thinking about the next one. “I feel like each [album] is a learning opportunity,” said Nelson. “The songs I sing about are really sarcastic, like my personality, they’re a bit quirky like me. They

She is glad to be a part of the Saskatchewan country music scene, and describes it

as such a tight-knit community. “Maybe one day, I’ll switch genres. But right now, I just couldn’t imagine it,” said Nelson. Good Intentions, as mentioned, is available at Boston Pizzas throughout Saskatchewan, as well as on iTunes or by visiting Nelson’s website for download.

Is there a chance that August is jealous and resentful of siblings June and July or even September? If I were August, my nose would certainly be out of joint and I’d make sure everyone else in the family knew of my displeasure — pure unhappiness with being left out of the fun and frivolity that is enjoyed by most everyone else in the Calendar Family. While August isn’t able to speak for itself, I will be a voice for this month that always seems to be ignored by event planJoyce Walter ners and activity co-ordinators. For Moose Jaw Express August should be asking what she is lacking, what is missing in her personality that automatically shoves her to the sidelines, much like the wallflowers at school dances, those students who aren’t part of the popular crowd. There is absolutely nothing wrong with August. She has 31 days that could be, in fact should be, filled to capacity with comings and goings, days that are just as bright and sunny and warm as counterparts in other months of spring and summer. But alas, August is shoved aside in favour of over-loading her siblings, cramming more enjoyment in those months than a person can manage to accommodate. If there is a free day in June or July it is only because an activity hasn’t been planned yet that will fill those hours, but give it a few minutes and someone will fill in the blanks. From Victoria’s birthday weekend in May to the final day of July we humans are constantly on the go, taking in the parties and festivals, graduations, fairs and exhibitions, heritage days and fashion shows, sporting events and cultural productions, family reunions, birthdays and anniversaries, food fairs and car shows, airshows and meat draws, berry festivals and sidewalk displays, outdoor concerts and book events, playground programs and pool parties, antler surgery and wine tasting, markets for fresh vegetables, fruit stand forays and museum family days — and repeat. Then add in family visits and camping trips, hotdog days and dunk tanks, bouncy castle events, balloon animals and face painting, clowns and magicians, ball tournaments and homemade pie sales — not to mention all the regular activities of day-to-day life like going to work, yard work, gardening, lawn watering and grilling on the deck. Maybe it is a good thing that August is there to let us all rest easy, to take a breath and then release it slowly. In and out, and repeat. The rationale for a nothing-much-going-on in August could be it is the lead-up to the harvest season; the winding-down of the regular tourism season; back-to-school days lurking mere days away; canning and freezing activities in the kitchen; final hours to enjoy the lakefront cottage; and time to wave goodbye to all the July holiday guests who came and stayed. Still, I think moving an event or two out of July and into August would solve some of the hustle and make the wall-flower month feel a bit better about herself. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Report from the Legislature

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse Saskatchewan’s economy is imLyle Stewart proving and our province MLA, continues to Lumsden-Morse grow after three years of low natural resource prices and fiscal challenges. Despite the headwinds of a federal carbon tax and trade challenges, Saskatchewan has now seen nine consecutive months of strong job growth. Another sign of Saskatchewan’s resiliency and strength is our position as a leader in wholesale trade growth – second among the provinces and #1 in Western Canada. Canada and Saskatchewan can celebrate after attempts by the B.C. NDP government to block the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and future pipeline projects were recently struck down by the B.C. Court of Appeal.

The unanimous 5-0 decision recognizes and makes clear that B.C. cannot limit oil from another province, and reaffirms that building pipelines and getting our sustainable energy to market is in the national interest. The B.C. NDP government says it plans to appeal to the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, the Saskatchewan NDP are silent, as they always are when it comes to supporting Saskatchewan’s most important jobs and industries. The ball is now in the federal government’s court to get Trans Mountain approved right away and send a clear signal that other pipeline projects are possible. Changes to federal Advance Payment Program to help canola producers announced on May 1st are still not available and producers have been told by federal officials that they may not be in place until months from now. This is way too late for canola producers who are already close to completing seeding.

The federal government needs to make the changes to the Advance Payment Program they committed to. This is critical to agricultural producers who are facing uncertainty in international markets. Your Saskatchewan Party government has reached out and is calling on the federal Agriculture Minister to get this fixed immediately. Recently, we learned Japan is reopening their doors to Canadian beef over 30 months of age. This restriction has been in place since 2005 with the border closed since 2003. I am pleased to see the government of Japan’s recognition of the quality and safety of Canadian beef of all ages. We continue to work to open up markets for Saskatchewan products, and will continue to advocate for our Saskatchewan industries at home and around the world. Here at home, our government has lifted restrictions on bringing alcohol to Saskatchewan for personal use. This simple change is part of our commitment to freer trade within Canada and ending unnecessary trade barriers between provinces. In just over a decade, Saskatchewan has grown by 160,000 people and created 75,000 new jobs. This kind of activity has allowed us to make strategic invest-

ments to: strengthen health care, taking surgical wait times from the longest in Canada to now among the shortest; improve education outcomes, with 46 new or replacement schools and 925 more teachers for our classrooms; and invest in our most vulnerable people, making Saskatchewan the best place in Canada for someone with a disability.In 2012, your Saskatchewan Party Government launched The Saskatchewan Plan for Growth: Vision 2020 and Beyond. Our government’s Growth Plan was a vision for a growing province, that built on the strength of our people, our resources and innovation, to make Saskatchewan an economic leader. Despite Saskatchewan’s economic success and record investment in infrastructure and services, we know that there is still more to be done. In building a plan for 2030, we want to hear from you about your community and your priorities as we look towards the next decade for our province. Over the coming weeks and months, your Saskatchewan Party MLAs will be reaching out to you. We look forward to hearing your thoughts, suggestions and feedback in terms of how we can build on the growth of our communities and our province.

Claybank historical site in need of public support Larissa Kurz

The Claybank Brick Plant churned out bricks from 1914 to 1989 and now claims the title of North America’s most well-preserved brick-making site, but its future may be up in the air in the next few months. Since it’s opening, the plant has supplied product for some recognizable local buildings such as the Natatorium, St. Joseph’s Church, parts of Sask Polytech’s facade, Capitol Theatre, and even the ovens at Maple Leaf Bakery. Bricks from Claybank make up part of the Delta Bessborough in Saskatoon, and they have even traveled as far as Quebec for the famous Château Frontenac hotel. These days, the historic plant is struggling with a lack of funding and is in need of support to keep its doors open and its buildings from succumbing to the wear and tear of nature. “We do have Mother Nature fighting, do-

ing her best to thwart us at every turn,” said Frank Korvemaker, historian for the Claybank Brick Plant Historical Society. The site no longer functions as a brick plant but rather as a heritage site, offering tours and information about the plant’s brick-making and the original equipment that was used — some of which is still on site. Due to funding cuts from the provincial government, Claybank Brick Plant is looking at potentially having to close early this summer if they cannot raise the funds needed. “We don’t even have enough money to make it all the way through the summer,” said Korvemaker. “Unless we can find more money sometime in July or August, we’re going to have to let the paid staff go and work entirely with volunteers.” If their accounts empty this summer, the Claybank Brick Plant will try and con-

The Claybank Brick Plant currently has a Go Fund Me page set up to raise the $20,000 they need to finish their summer season with paid staff, but there is also a number of other issues the plant is facing on a more long-term stage that will require monetary attention as well. “Maintenance is something that is an ongoing concern at any historic site, Claybank is not unique in that regard,” said Korvemaker. A number of buildings have leaking roofs,

threatening damage to historical items and electrical panels. Part of the plant, which is made out of bricks itself, sits on land plagued with alkali — which eats away at masonry. “We have at least a dozen buildings that we have to look after, and some are more complex than others,” said Korvemaker. “We’ve invested well over $3 or $4 million in this. And to just watch it go, it doesn’t make sense at all.” The plant site is a heritage site, and although the Society is working with heritage funding from the government, they are seeking help from the public as well. “We need volunteers, we need donations,” said Korvemaker. “We also need people to talk to their government representatives, both provincial and federal, to say Claybank needs additional support.” The result, Korvemaker hopes, is the site can keep its staff members and its doors open for a while. Donations are welcome through the Go Fund Me page, or by calling the site office at (306) 868-4474 for more information on how to help. The site will also be taking donations during their annual Heritage Day event, which is on June 30 from 10:30am to 4:30pm.

Legion Show and Shine brings out vintage vehicles Impressive line-up of late 60s, early 70s muscle cars highlight annual car show Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

If you like vintage cars in near pristine condition, the annual Legion Show and Shine car show on Saturday afternoon was the place to be. The event featured over a dozen show-room quality vehicles on display, ranging from a 1948 Fargo pick-up -- complete with an inline six-cylinder engine -- all the way up to a 1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda, featuring a 440 cubic inch four-barrel that would likely smoke the tires off even in the highest gear. A steady stream of car fans took in the show, many marveling at the impressive array on display and the care put into the vehicles by their owners. The weekend wasn’t over for car and truck enthusiasts, as the “Those Guys” Bent Wrench Run Show and Shine took place on Sunday at the Wakamow Oval.

Vehicles of all stripes, styles and sizes were on display during the show.

Classic cars and big crowds: Bent Wrench Show and Shine a hit once again Over 100 cars and plenty of patrons take in show at Wakamow Valley oval Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

A variety of vehicles were on hand for perusal during the Bent Wrench Show and Shine.

One of the largest car shows of the year in Moose Jaw and area took centre stage at Wakamow Valley on Sunday afternoon during the sixth annual Bent Wrench Run Show and Shine. The event featured over 100 vehicles of all kinds and a bit of something for everyone – if older vintage cars in perfect condition were your thing, there was a 1947 Hudson Commodore to check out. Or a 1961 Studebaker Hawk. Muscle cars? The pair of 1970 Dodge Dart Swingers might have tickled your fancy, or maybe the ’69 Pontiac GTO or ’71 Plymouth Barracuda. And straight-up hot rods? No question, the Ford Coupes on hand would do the trick – be it the flame-painted purple ’49, hot yellow ’31 or white ’28 Model A and its immense dragster engine. The popularity of the show was without question, as a steady stream of patrons worked their way down the lines of vehicles, with hundreds checking out the ‘best exhaust’ competition in the early afternoon.

Mortlach Berry Festival promises to stain your teeth purple Larissa Kurz

The Mortlach Berry Festival is back for its 12th year on June 29, kicking off with a pancake breakfast at 8am and continuing on through the day with a whole list of interesting things — pies, music, shopping, and more. One of the festival’s organizers, Marcia Wiman, finds that the day will be well worth checking out, with so many different things going on. “It’s really a family-oriented event,” said Wiman. “There’s a little bit of something for everybody.” As usual, the parade will begin at 11am, and square dancing and clogging demonstrations in both the morning and afternoon from local dancers. The Easy Riders Horse Club are hosting events beginning at 9am. Wagon rides are being offered all day, as well as an impressive Show and Shine. A number of vendors have signed up to be at the Trade Show from 9am to 5pm, and will certainly have whatever

you may be looking for: from books to health supplements, linens to jewelry, honey to concrete yard decorations. There will be several food vendors in attendance, to fuel the crowd to take on the various activities going on throughout the day. And, of course, the kids will have tons to do: activities at Vimy Park beginning at 11:30am, like face painting, bouncy castles, and pedal tractors. A number of educational displays will be set up in the gym at Mortlach School, which is also where a special display will be available to see: a time capsule buried by Mortlach students 25 years ago, that was dug up this year. Current Mortlach students will be refilling the capsule and burying it for another 25 years. “The contents of the time capsule are also going to be on display, in the gym that day,” said Wiman. “It’ll be interesting to see, what actually went in there and in another 25 years, it’ll be interesting to see what people put in it now.” The ever-popular Saskatoon berry pies are also returning, the namesake of the whole festival. This year, the committee has ordered 550 pies from Prairie Berries in Keeler, and are taking preorders from June 1 until June 26. “The [preordered] pies will be there in a box and you pick it up when you’re ready to leave, rather than taking it and leaving it in your car,” said Wiman. Otherwise, the pies will be for sale the day of the festival, beginning at 9am until quantities run out. Last year, Wiman guessed they sold out of pie entirely by midafternoon — not a slice left in town. There will also be a pie eating contest in the afternoon,

Juno Award nominee Megan Nash is taking the stage first at 12pm, followed by Moose Jaw’s Random Honesty at 1:30pm, and closing with the Tilted Kilts — accompanied by a group of Irish dancers — from 3:30-5pm. It’s a busy day for Mortlach, as they usually see around 1,500 people come through for the festival. The organizers invite everyone to come out and “Meet Me in Mortlach.” “There’s just lots of rural hospitality,” said Wiman. ”It’s a good way for the local people to come in and just spend the day visiting with all their neighbors that they never get to see.” A full schedule for the festival and more information about preordering can be found on their Facebook page.

Heritage Day a chance to see Claybank Brick Plant in action The antique machinery in the Claybank Brick Plant sits dormant for most of the year, a visual exhibit for curious visitors to imagine what goes on in the century-old plant. But each year on Heritage Day, imagination isn’t necessary. Volunteers and previous workers fire up as much machinery as possible and do what Claybank Brick Plant does best: make bricks. Program coordinator Pat Machmer calls it a once-a-year opportunity, to witness the brick-making process in action, and the heritage site makes sure to offer a look into the entire process. “You get to actually see a brick getting made, and that’s not something that happens every day,” said Machmer. “That brick press is really old, and so that’s pretty cool, I think, for people to see that.” Visitors can hop onto a tractor ride out into the clay canyons, to see the source of the black-flecked clay unique to Claybank.

Sea Cadets, Navy League impress at Annual Ceremonial Review Larissa Kurz

The Lieutenant Colonel DV Currie VC Armoury was busy on June 3, as many gathered for the Annual Ceremonial Review of the 99 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Assiniboine and the #33 Moose Jaw Navy League.

Mommy and Me Princess Tea a hit once again Close to 600 tickets sold for Church of God wonderland event Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Church of God campus on Trinity Lane in Moose Jaw was transformed into a virtual – and literal – wonderland on June 8th for the fourth annual Mommy and Me Princess Tea. The event saw the former International Bible College building transformed into a variety of special princess-themed rooms, ranging from Frozen to Moana and yes, Alice in Wonderland. All with the idea of giving little princesses and their moms a chance to have an afternoon filled with plenty of fun things to see and do. “This is the fourth year we’ve held it and every year we take the IBC building and we completely transform it in order to welcome the community,” said event organizer Bethany DeWalt. “The first year we couldn’t decide which princess we wanted to feature so we decorated every room as a different princess. We switch it up every year. It hasn’t been the same twice.”

That variety has led to some spectacular design, with the Wonderland room a good example, featuring a stunning array of sites and things to do, ranging from visiting with the Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts and Alice herself to visiting the White Rabbit’s home and working their way through a maze next to the Cheshire Cat’s tree. Youngsters could even receive a special princess make-over if they so chose. Other rooms featured music and dancing from Frozen, arts and crafts and even a purse designing and building station to go along with the traditional face paint-

ing and balloon animals. And, of course, a special tea room that drew long lines throughout the day. There’s little question the event has become impressively popular – after selling 200 tickets its first year, more than 600 were sold this year at a price point designed to be accessible to almost anyone: $12 for adults, $5 for children. The tea also featured a charity component, with a food bank donation station that was expected to bring in over 500 pounds of food by days end. “We wanted to do some kind of outreach

event to show our love for the community and show God’s love and do something for those around us, so what better way than do a cheaper event with a food bank donation part of it as well,” DeWalt said. “We just wanted to give back and it’s worked out really well.” Given the increasing success of the tea, there’s little doubt it’ll be back again next year. “We already have ideas for year five,” DeWalt said with a laugh.

Fruit stand finds new home after 34 years in same location Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The B&B Fruit Stand has offered its produce from the same location in Moose Jaw for the past 34 years, but it was recently forced to find a new home. With fruit trucked in from the Oosyoos region in British Columbia, owner Todd Bell operated his fruit stand on the corner near the intersection of High Street West and Ninth Avenue Northwest since 1985. That property used to contain an office for M&M Construction, before Fas Gas arrived in 1988 and took over. However, Bell was forced to move his fruit stand after the owners of Fas Gas decided a couple of months ago to close down the gas station and sell the property. For the past month, Bell has been operating his business on a lot near 432 High Street West, adjacent to Flat Line Builders. Bell moved his fruit stand to that particular loca-

tion since there was room and parking for his customers. It’s a good location, which allows him to be outside and talk with people. Yet, being at the intersection also provided a high degree of visibility. “It’s tough to get a spot (in Moose Jaw) …” he remarked. “But I’ll be honest, having 2,700 followers on Facebook has helped (spread the word).” He explained that he was not into Facebook all that much, but his son helped him get set up on the social media platform as one way to promote his business. “I’m now with my third generation of customers,” Bell added. Bell expects to keep his fruit stand on this lot for the long-term since he knows the owner of the Todd Bell, owner of B&B Fruit Stand, arranges his produce in property. between customers.

Festival of Trees announces new venue, among other changes Larissa Kurz

This year’s Festival of Trees theme is “Kaleidoscope,” and the event committee is hoping that the glitz of this year’s festival will wow attendees just like past years. The Moose Jaw Health Foundation announced a few changes to their main fundraising event, taking place on Nov. 16 this year — the most notable of which is a venue change. Taking place at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre at Mosaic Place, this year’s Festival is poised to be bigger and more dazzling due to the extra space. “Being able to have it here means that we can go bigger and better, with the decorating, with the trees, with everything,” said Jackie d’Entremont, chair of the Festival of Trees committee. Because of the new venue, the event will feature a plated supper created by Saskatoon celebrity chef Dale McKay, winner of Top Chef Canada in 2011. The layout of the tables will be familiar, but the new space will allow the event to be bigger and more elaborate than in past years. “We always like it to be an experience, from the time that

The price for the event has also been lowered to $150, to hopefully bring more attendees into the fold. Tickets are

Health Foundation’s Mammography Matters campaign in full swing Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Health Foundation is dedicated to bringing new digital mammography equipment to the Dr. F.H. Wigmore hospital here in the city with their 2019 campaign, Mammography Matters. “When people participate by either making a donation to the Foundation or through one of those events, all the funds stay in our community to help patients who that might go through cancer,” said Kelly McElree, executive director of MJHF. “Early detection is the key to a person who’s been diagnosed with cancer. The faster you can treat people, the better the outcome.” The campaign’s goal is $375,000, and donations are already pouring in. Upcoming events are fundraising to supporting the MJHF campaign, including the annual Moose Jawg on July 1. As well, the Hillcrest Golf Club was host to the annual golf tournament in support of the MJHF on June 13. Other support has come from events like the Little Princess Ball, which was held on March 30 and 31. Earlier this spring, the 800 CHAB Family First Radiothon returned for its 13th year. Thanks to generous donations, including a donation of $185,000 from the estate of Ken Loftus, the Radiothon was able to double its goal this year and bring in approximately $300,000.

The Prairie Hearts Quilter’s Guild raffled off a quilt at their recent Quilt Show, raising $2,200 for the MJHF’s campaign. As well, Concerts in the Park began once again on June 5, as a thank you from the MJHF to all of their donors over the years, and the Festival of Trees will soon be announcing details about this year’s event. The support from the community is, as always, impressive to McElree. “That’s what Moose Jaw is ‘it’s people working together for common goals’,” said McElree. “We are very thankful that people feel so motivated that they give up their time and contribute dollars.” He encourages people to take note of the many events going on this summer and to come out to one — or all — of them in support of the Health Foundation’s goal. The community helped the MJHF bring the first digital mammography technology to Moose Jaw 10 years ago, which has completed around 33,000 examinations in its lifetime. With new, more accurate equipment, the Health Foundation hopes to continue to help with early detection of breast cancer. “The community rallied together a decade ago and we’re asking the community to help us out once again, in order to help save lives,” said McElree.

going to be available online this year as well, beginning in September. Alongside the beautiful displays, there will be a silent auction that will have a new twist. Run through an app, the silent auction will feature photos of the items and an alert system to let bidders know they’ve been outbid, immediately. “I think it’s going to bring more excitement to not only the live auction but the silent auction as well,” said d’Entremont. “We will have online bidding, where even if you’re not here that evening, you will be able to vote on silent auction items.” The brunch and the Sunday’s with Santa events will be held at Mosaic Place in the Curling Centre as well, and d’Entremont is pleased to see that the larger venue will be able to accommodate more kids for the usually sold out event. “Hopefully the atmosphere will be different, then in the past,” said d’Entremont. “We just want the excitement there for everyone.”

City Hall Council Notes Soccer association reduces pledge to Multiplex, feels tenancy not valued The Moose Jaw Soccer Association (MJSA) is still committed to financially supporting the Multiplex, even though its executive believes the municipality does not value its pledge or tenancy. At a city council meeting held in February, a councillor asked administration about the status of the donations received for the Downtown Facility and Field House (DFFH), or Multiplex, particularly from the

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

soccer association. City administration provided a response to council on April 22, saying the soccer association’s original pledge was $30,000 annually for 25 years for a total of $750,000. Furthermore, after five years of pledges, the soccer association had provided $164,050. A letter from the soccer organization was presented at the May 27 executive committee meeting, in which

the group explained that it was possibly changing how much it was pledging and the reason for that. Administration noted in its report to council that based on current registration numbers, the MJSA is expected to contribute about $6,500 annually under the updated pledge, while charging $25 per player. Council approved a recommendation to receive and file the report; there was no discussion about it.

Bylaws governing noise complaints and outdoor smoking now official Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

If you have a noise complaint against your neighbour, or you’re looking for a smokefree supper on a restaurant patio, there are now updated bylaws that will govern those issues. During its June 10 regular meeting, city council gave third reading to an amended smoking bylaw, noise bylaw and building bylaw, effectively making them official. The amended smoking bylaw prohibits smoking on all outdoor patios at bars and restaurants. The use of e-cigarettes (vaping), cannabis and hookah pipes will also be banned from outdoor seating areas; in all municipal-owned outdoor public green spaces such as parks; within a

10-metre buffer zone of entrances, windows and air exchanges of public buildings; and in enclosed public places where smoking is prohibited under The Tobacco Control Act. However, the updated smoking bylaw allows for use of tobacco for traditional spiritual and cultural ceremonies, and allows for the teaching and testing of vaping devices in retail stores. The amended noise bylaw provides a solution to noise-related complaints in downtown Moose Jaw. There were limited regulations in place to address such concerns. Sanctioned outdoor events will be exempt from noise requirements until

11 p.m. This is an extension from the 10 p.m. deadline by which other users must abide. Giving a time extension for events allows crowds to disperse that may end close to, or past, 10 p.m. Amendments to the building bylaw mean soundproofing will be required in separate mixed-use buildings that have walls flush with one another. The proposed Ride-hailing Bylaw was given three readings and approved. This bylaw provides regulations for the operation of ride-hail — or ride-sharing — companies within Moose Jaw, while ensuring the safety of passengers and the vehicles they hire.

The proposed Licensing Bylaw was given three readings and approved. This bylaw exempts taxis, limousines, shuttles and ride-hailing companies from business licence requirements. The Taxi, Limousine and Shuttle Bylaw as given three readings, but since Swanson vote against the bylaw, it must become back to a future council meeting for official approval. This bylaw provides regulations for the operation of taxis, limousines and shuttles within Moose Jaw and better ensures the safety of passengers and the vehicles they hire.

All city heritage buildings could soon be eligible for funding Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Heritage buildings that exist outside the downtown core — including the former Chinese United Church at 303 High Street West — could soon be eligible for municipal grant funding. During its May 27 executive committee meeting, city council voted 6-1 on a recommendation to amend the Downtown Façade Improvement Grant Policy, and to approve a maximum reimbursement of $4,157.50 to the owners of 303 High Street West for renovations to the building on that property. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. The recommendation has to be approved at a future regular council meeting for it to be official. Supporting all heritage buildings The amendment to the Downtown Façade Improvement Grant Policy would make all designated municipal heritage buildings — regardless of location — eligible for the grant funding, according to a city administration report. The policy used the downtown boundary as a way to determine the eligibility for the grant. An application

Extra money directed to fix backup engine at northeast reservoir Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

More money is being allocated to fix the northeast reservoir backup engine after it was discovered the entire switch gear and switchboard need replacing. During its recent regular meeting, city council voted unanimously to approve a change order to the contract with Pro-Tec Electric Ltd. for the northeast reservoir backup engine replacement project for more than $59,598.55, to replace the two electrical mechanisms. This project will prolong the electrical service life of the pumphouse, a city administration report explained. Due to a recent power outage at the pumphouse, damaged was caused to the motor and switch gear for pump No. 3. Fur-

ther investigation revealed the bus bar in the switch gear was also pitted. The backup engines are being replaced with a natural gas generator, since the engines that drive the pumps when the electric power fails are becoming unreliable. The technology used in these engines is outdated and replacement parts are difficult to obtain, the report explained. The original construction contract value with Pro-Tec is more than $888,085.49. The dollar amount of the change order represents an increase of 6.71 per cent, the report continued. The average construction contingency and

contract variations is within five per cent to 10 per cent of the new award contract value. The extra funding to fix the electrical mechanisms increases the project cost to $1,049,134.04. “This is a fairly routine item,” Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering services, told city council. “This project is on budget, even with the change order. We did receive three tenders on this. We received favourable tender pricing, which left budget available for items that were provisional.” The next regular council meeting is Monday, June 24.

Council’s investment decisions don’t sit well with Swanson Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

It appears the old adage, that if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again, could be the new motto for Coun. Brian Swanson. After Swanson failed to have three amendments approved to the municipality’s investment policy during a previous council meeting — or even explain why he wanted them — he had council re-vote on them during its June 10 regular meeting. Although he provided some explanation for why he wanted the amendments made, the end result was still the same: council voted 6-1 against all three amendments. The amendments were: • Under the fixed income pool, the minimum quality standard for individual money market instruments be changed from BBB to single A for individual bonds • Under the moderate term pool, the asset class equity be changed to a maximum of 30 per cent from 50 per cent • Under the long-term pool, the asset class equity be changed to a maximum of 30 per cent from 90 per cent A report presented during a previous executive committee meeting showed the City of Moose Jaw has $100 million in reserves targeted for medium- and longterm investments. About $70 million would be invested in a long-term pool and $30 million would be invested in a moderate term pool. About $2.75 million is generated annually in interest from the $100 million. Council discussion Swanson didn’t support BBB bonds since he thought there was a significant risk for

those individual bonds. He also did not support watering down the bonds by giving them that rating. He gave no reason for changing the moderate term pool to a maximum of 30 per cent. However, for the long-term pool, Swanson pointed out that that $70 million is taxpayers’ money, while any reserves the municipality has could represent money received from over taxation. “I have yet to have anyone tell me the city should invest in the stock market,” he said. Swanson was not in favour of investing 90 per cent of $70 million in the stock market but was OK with investing $30 million. Investing this money is a benefit, said Coun. Chris Warren. Moose Jaw is the envy of other Canadian municipalities because of the foresight the city’s forefathers had to create these reserves, which help fund infrastructure projects. In a perfect world, city council would throw all available money at fixing roads and other infrastructure, Warren continued. It would be great to fix 80 kilometres of roads in three years, but then no one would get around. Don’t sell the farm Professional experts were asked to help grow this money, said Coun. Heather Eby. Having $100 million is more than she can imagine, so she was glad there were intelligent experts available to help manage it. “You only get to sell the farm once. It won’t make you a dime once it’s gone,” she added. “I would never be in favour of

selling the farm and putting it into streets and roads.” Anyone who thinks the stock market always generates positive returns has never studied the stock market, said Swanson. He would never suggest spending the entire $100 million on infrastructure in one or two years. But he believes the current investments are too risky, so he would prefer to stick to high-quality bonds that generated guaranteed money every year. Too much doom and gloom Coun. Dawn Luhning, one of two councillors on the investment committee, said she didn’t appreciate the investment committee being painted in such an unfair light, or having its efforts questioned. “The doom and gloom about the decisions we make around the table are get-

ting a little bit tiring for me. I think we are all trying to do what we believe is the best we can do,” she said. “At one point, I’d like to ask what we are in favour of. But it appears we are not in favour of a lot of things at this table … ,” she added. When people become a city councillor, they should take ownership of what they say and do, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. Councillors need to accept the past and look to the future. He appreciated the investment committee’s efforts. “We need to leave a legacy,” he added, “and the legacy of this council will be that it dealt with infrastructure, solved problems and looked at opportunities for future in this community.”

Fees waived for use of Tatawaw Park for Aboriginal activities The Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association (WACA) can use Tatawaw Park for free for its National Indigenous Peoples Day activities, after city council waived the rental fees. City council voted unanimously on a motion during its June 10 regular meeting to waive the booking fee of $445.69; the waiver request is for this year only. WACA intends to use the park from June 14 to 21 for its annual powwow, to unveil a sign featuring the park’s new name — it was originally the Wild Animal Park — and for actual events for National Indigenous Peoples Day. The parks and recreation department does not have a rental fee for Tatawaw Park, so administration decided to charge the same cost as it does for Happy Valley Park, explained city manager Jim Puffalt. Conversely, this is a unique situation since this is a community-wide celebration that fits into the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Lori Deets, board chair of WACA, spoke to council and explained she did not understand why rental fees were charged in the first place. She pointed out being able to use the park for free is a matter of reconciliation. “You need to have an understanding of what those calls to action mean,” she said. “I believe it your duty to follow those calls to action.” Waiving the fees so WACA could spend one day celebrating the renaming of the park is one thing, pointed out Coun. Brian Swanson. However, the association wants to spend seven days overall using the park. He didn’t see how this was any different from hosting Motif in Happy Valley Park. “We incur expenses for doing these things,” Swanson said, pointing out the municipality has to cut the grass and maintain Tatawaw Park. This is a community event, but there are also hundreds of other community events held each year, agreed Coun.

Dawn Luhning. She pointed out she had to pay $1,000 to host an event in Wakamow Valley. Luhning then put forward an amendment to make WACA’s application for a waiver a one-time request for this year only. “We have to level the playing field to a certain degree,” she said. “I believe this opens up and sets a precedent of us waiving a fee for utilization of an event that other community organizations are not asking for and don’t ask for.” The amendment makes a blanket statement that no other community groups should be allowed to make a similar request, said Coun. Crystal Froese. Council should be able to hear from people who want to use the parks and then make decisions on that. This is part of the democratic process.

Properties approved for use as landscaping business, women’s shelter Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Owners of the property at 1060 Main Street North have been given discretionary approval to turn a two-suite residential dwelling into an office space for a proposed landscaping business. The property is currently zoned as CS — Community Service/Institutional District, which lists offices as a discretionary use. The property was recently used as a residential one-unit dwelling, with a secondary suite in the basement. The main floor and the basement are separate spaces and can be accessed only from the building’s exterior. City council gave unanimous approval to the discretionary use request during its

June 10 regular meeting. This property will be taxed commercially once approval has been given, said city manager Jim Puffalt. Furthermore, the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) will be made aware of the change once the property is rezoned and development permit issued. Council also unanimously approved a request from the property owners of 303 Coteau Street West to rezone the property to R3 — High Density Residential District from R1 — Large Lot Low Density Residential District. The Moose Jaw Shelter of Hope organization has made the request, as it seeks to

operate a non-profit women’s shelter on the property. The property’s use would be classified as a boarding apartment under the zoning bylaw. The shelter would offer two options: • The provision of short-term emergency beds and amenities for women older than age 16. Ten beds would be available and would provide access to common bathing, amenities and laundry machines • The provision of four to six mini-suites for women and children. Each suite would contain beds, a bathroom, and storage areas. Residents would have access to common amenities and laundry machines. This option would provide ac-

commodations for one to six months Residents would receive three meals per day in a common kitchen area, while would be six parking spaces, plus one for a loading space. The building was constructed in the 1940s as a church and operated this way until the early 2000s. New owners took over in 2010. Approval was given to Caltech Surveys Ltd., on behalf of TransGas, for it to register a utility right-of-way for a natural gas transmission line in the southeast industrial area. The next regular council meeting is Monday, June 24.

Sale of former hospital property could generate $3.1M for municipality Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw could receive $2.6 million to $3.1 million if it can sell the former Union Hospital property that it acquired from the former Five Hills Health Region in 2015. There are roughly 6.16 acres of land available at 455 Fairford Street East, with the option for a company to purchase and close an additional 1.2 acres of unused or excess road right-of-way, according to a report from city administration. The minimum sale price of $417,452 per acre is based on an appraisal completed in 2015. One of the final steps in the process is for a preliminary geotechnical investigation to be conducted. Administration is now in the process of obtaining this report. The purchase of this property would be a substantial addition to the tax base, the report said. It cost the municipality $3,375 for Phase 1 of an environmental report, while it cost $17,950 for Phase 2 for another environmental report. The cost of the preliminary geotechnical in-

vestigation is about $15,000. During its executive committee meeting on May 27, city council approved a recommendation to have administration release and advertise requests for proposals (RFPs) for the redevelopment of the former Union Hospital property, upon completion of that preliminary geotechnical investigation. The recommendation must be approved at a next regular meeting for it to become official. The municipality acquired the property in 2015 for the purpose of resale. It then demolished the building in 2016 and officially took ownership of the property. Since late 2018, administration has been assessing the land to determine its suitability for redevelopment. Earlier in the meeting on May 27, council officially approved amendments to the zoning bylaw and to the Official Community Plan. This will allow the municipality to rezone the property to R4 Core Mixed Residential zone.

There will be the capacity for the installation of water and sewer infrastructure, Michelle Sanson, director of planning and development services, told Coun. Scott McMann. However, there could be higher development levies if a developer came in with a building with higher density. Sanson added it will likely be a couple of months before administration receives the geotechnical report. Every effort will be made to preserve the trees on that property, particularly along the river and Fairford Street, Derek Blais, director of parks and recreation, told Coun. Brian Swanson. Digging will not be allowed within 50 metres of that flora. The Rotary Trail that runs past that property will not be sold either, Blais added. Since the municipality retains ownership of the river bank, it doesn’t want to sell any portion of that.

Tatawaw Park sign unveiling completes renaming of Wild Animal Park Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

A lot of time, effort and dedication came to fruition for the local aboriginal community and their supporters on Saturday morning. Dozens of dignitaries and well-wishers were on hand at the recently renamed Wild Animal Park for the official unveiling of the park’s new name and new sign as Tatawaw Park took its final step into existence. “We did it!” exclaimed Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association chair Lori Deets. The project had been a labour of love for her and many others in the community, and to see things finally come together once and for all was a powerful moment. “I was part of the 60’s Scoop and I was raised in Moose Jaw,” Deets explained. “I love Moose Jaw; it’s my home and I promote it every time I can… “So to come here and actually join my original roots and culture and what I’m learning to a home that I love? It means so much to me, I can’t even explain it. I’m still shaking. I was shaking when I was speaking up there and when we revealed the sign, I almost can’t believe it.” That sentiment was shared by Kayleigh Olson, the Grade 12 Central student who played a large role in getting the project off the ground and helping it move forward. “It’s awesome to see everyone come together, especially to see non-Indigenous people here too,” Olson said. “It’s all about building those relationships, everybody is so interested in seeing our beautiful culture so it’s awesome to see so many people out here.” The event featured remarks from several dignitaries and included a dedication drum circle song as well as a prayer from Cowessess First Nation elder Archie Weenie. Choosing the park’s name – Tatawaw,

That’s what means the most to all of us.” While the park renaming was a major first step, things are far from done in that regard, with more goals on the horizon. “Now the big thing I’d like to do is have it receive heritage status, so no one can come down here with buildings because there are burial sites down here, there are people still on this land,” said Olson. “So that’s a big thing that’s next.” Until then, it’s all about continuing to build and grow as a community, with Tatawaw Park just one focal point in that direction. “It’s what it says, everyone is welcome,”

South Hill Community Association chair Crystal Froese and Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association chair Lori Deets unveil the sign. Deets said. “This is all of our land and we need to find a respectful way to share that with all of us and how to do that, how to

go forward. Reconciliation is very intentional steps; this is the first step and there are many more after that.”

Miller Express close out week with pair of wins

Moose Jaw takes 5-4 win in Medicine Hat after downing Melville 5-3 at home Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Miller Express head coach Rich Sorenson recently surmised that if his team could hold the opposition to under five runs, he was confident their offense would come through more often than not. And it happened. The Express took advantage of a host of solid pitching performances on their way to a pair of weekend wins in Western Canadian Baseball League action, as they defeated the Melville Millionaires 5-3 on Saturday at Ross Wells Park before holding on for a 5-4 win over the Medicine Hat Mavericks in their first trip to Alberta. The two wins saw the Express improve to 8-7 on the season, good enough for fourth place in the Eastern Division, 5 1/2 games back of first place Weyburn and 3 ½ games ahead of fifth-place Melville. Express 5, Melville 3 Michael Borst, the power-hitting outfielder tossed seven innings against the Millionaires, giving up three runs while scattering six hits and walking one to give his team a shot to win the game late – a chance they’d need because Melville’s Tanner Solomon was Borst’s equal, going seven innings himself and also surrendering three runs on three hits. With the game tied at three in the Express half of the

Darrell Doll then singled home Gallagher to give Moose Jaw a 5-3 edge. That was enough for Nathan Slobodian, who gave up a hit while shutting down Melville in the eighth to pick up the win; Jaden Hofmann tossed the ninth to earn the save.

Geordie McDougall finished the game 2-for-3 with a seventh-inning home run and two RBI. Express 5, Medicine Hat 4 Sorenson put on the miles trekking out to the pitching mound during Sunday’s afternoon contest in Medicine Hat, as the Express used six different pitchers on their way to picking up the close victory. Alex Orenczuk got the start on the mound and gave up two runs on three hits; Jeff Nicolosi, Tyler Sheridan and Reece Helland tossed the next five innings, giving up two runs on a pair of hits. Hofmann came on for the final out of the seventh and gave up a single hit in 1 1/3 innings work before Jack Gamba closed things out with three ground balls to earn the save. Dougie DelaCruz scored a pair of runs for the Express while Tucker Zdunich and Andres Garza each went 2-for-3 at the plate. Doll also continued to swing a hot bat, going 3-for-4 on the night. The Miller Express had Monday off before taking the field for a doubleheader in Melville on Tuesday and facing the Millionaires on the road again Wednesday. A trip to Yorkton Thursday closes out the road run, with their next home game on Friday against the Weyburn Beavers (7 p.m., Ross Wells).

Hillcrest charity tournament raises over $2,600 for Moose Jaw Health Foundation Funds earmarked for new digital mammography equipment Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Health Foundation will be nearly $3,000 closer to their goal of purchasing a new digital mammography machine for the F.H. Wigmore Hospital after the 16th annual Hillcrest Golf Club Charity Tournament last Thursday. A total of 72 golfers comprising 18 teams took part in the Texas scramble event, raising $2,640 for the Foundation and potentially even more. “We’re expecting a few more donations to come in, so it’s just awesome,” said tournament organizer Jean Kempel. “It’s a great cause so we’re really happy with that… it’s basically a fun tournament, we threw in some prizes this year to make it a little better, so it’s nice to see people come out.” The team of Paul Kwan, Lyle Longworth, Carolyn MacDonald and Ken Bradley carded a 59 to take first place in the event.

Every dollar raised at the tournament will go to the Foundation, which is currently in the midst of it’s Mammography Matters campaign in order to raise funds for the new machine. “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 Health Foundation board 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. “We are thrilled that the Hillcrest Ladies 18 and the Senior Men’s Leagues chose the Health Foundation to be the recipient of the event.” Kempel and her fellow players were more than happy to see the money going to such a cause.

The team of Paul Kwan, Lyle Longworth, Carolyn MacDonald and Ken Bradley came in with the lowest score from the Hillcrest Golf Club Charity Tournament.

Midget Mustangs winning but looking to fine-tune as playoffs near The Moose Jaw Midget Mustangs have had a good season so far but coach Kyle Dalgarno says he doesn’t want the team to become complacent. “Taking it easy in a late-season game is a dangerous plan, something that can lead to bad habits that could prove costly when the games really matter. “That’s exactly where we don’t want to be,” Dalgarno said. “We’re coming down to the last leg of the season and you want to be absolutely fine-tuned right now. We still came out on top but we still have lots of things to work on here.” The Mustangs led 3-2 after the first and 5-4 through two before finding themselves tied 5-5 after Regina scored with 7:17 to play. The score stayed tied for just over three minutes before Moose Jaw pulled away with three goals in the span of 18 seconds late in the game. Atley Calvert scored five goals and added two assists to the lead

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express the offence while Ethan Peters added a goal and two helpers, Jacob Gyman and Kael Nichols each had a goal and an assist. Brennan Blatz also had two assists. Bryden Kerr was the winning goaltender. There were few concerns with the Mustangs’ game earlier in the week, as they rolled to a 12-3 win over the Estevan Voltz in a neutral site game in Bienfait. Brennan Watterson and Brydon Bell each scored three times as Moose Jaw built leads of 5-0 and 8-1 by period. Nichols scored twice, Gyman, Jake Williams, Ethan Johnson and Kayde Shymko all had single goals. The key now will be to gear up for the playoffs and ideally hit the floor running when the time comes. “We hope to do well, get a few more wins to end the season and see where we end up,” Dalgarno said.

Mustangs defeat Estevan in neutral site game

Moose Jaw takes 9-4 victory over Voltz in Bienfait Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

A four-goal first period gave lacrosse fans in Bienfait a bit of an idea of what the Moose Jaw Mustangs are capable of in South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League Bantam division action last Tuesday. The rest of the game simply cemented it. Rowan Calvert scored four goals to lead the Mustangs to a 9-4 victory over the Estevan Voltz in the rare neutral-site contest. Davin Williams added a pair of markers for Moose Jaw, who padded their lead to

6-2 through two periods. Liam Fitzpatrick, Eric Woodley, Colton Ebbett and Dalton Cushway all had one goal each. Walker Willams and Luke Andrews split time in goal and were their usual solid selves. The victory closed out the regular season for the Mustangs, who capped the campaign with a perfect 10-0 record, outscoring their opponents 83-23 in the process.

Warriors to host Regina in WHL pre-season kick-off Tribe to play seven exhibition games to open 2019-20 season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors and Regina Pats will play the first game of the Western Hockey League pre-season on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at Mosaic Place. The contest will kick off a busy exhibition schedule for the Tribe, as they’ll take the ice seven times over a twoweek span. Two of those games will be during the Regina Pats tournament at the Brandt Centre, as they face the Swift Current Broncos on Friday, Aug. 30 before taking on the Saskatoon Blades on Saturday, Aug. 31. The Warriors’ first game of the new month will come on Wednesday, Sept. 4 as they travel to Prince Albert, followed by a return visit by the Raiders on Saturday, Sept. 7. The Tribe will then have a week off before hosting the Brandon Wheat Kings on Friday, Sept. 13, then travelling to Brandon on Saturday, Sept. 14 to close out the exhibition schedule. All Warriors pre-season home games are 7 p.m. at Mosaic Place.

Block caps incredible season with provincial shot put gold

Cornerstone standout wins second gold, Vanier’s Townsend tops in senior girls javelin Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

During the Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association provincial championships this past weekend at Gutheridge Field, Aliyah Block, the 15-year-old Cornerstone Christian School competitor opened the meet with a gold medal in the midget girls discus on Friday morning and followed with a gold in her specialty event, the shot put, on Saturday. The only difference this time around is things were a little bit closer than usual: Block was the only competitor to clear 11 metres, cracking 11.08 to finish 10 centimetres ahead of Swift Current’s Kamryn Johnson. “I don’t know if it’s really clicked yet, but I know it’s pretty amazing,” Block said shortly after the result were

made official. “It wasn’t my best throw but it’s hard to be mad at myself because it’s really exciting to win.” Block’s dominance is hard to overstate – every mini meet, every track and field competition from May through June was just win after win after win, with most of those victories also seeing her set records in the process. She was unable to crack the mark of 11.54 metres set last year by Bryn Bohmann of Saskatoon Bethlehem, but that mattered little in the end. “It’s pretty amazing,” Block said of her campaign. “It’s not just what I’ve done, but all the blessings around me. I have put in a lot of work but it’s just luck having an amazing coach whose your dad and having parents who can drive you to everything, it’s just amazing.” Block wasn’t the only gold medalist for South Central to come out of Saturday’s competition. Earlier on Friday, Vanier’s Zidane Closs won gold in the high jump, outduelling Nipawin’s Tomi Akinwuntan to claim top spot. Closs, 15, cleared 1.78 metres and came within a hair’s breadth of clearing 1.81 metres on his second attempt but settled for a tie with Akinwuntan in the discipline. Closs had fewer misses through the competition, though, and ended up claiming the gold. “I got a new p.b, that was good, and I just about had the second (jump), so it was pretty close,” Closs said. Closs had never attempted 1.81 metres, making his close-as-close-can-be attempt all the more impressive. “It’s pretty tough (to miss), but I was hoping for gold, so it’s good,” he said. Vanier’s Delaney Townsend also capped an amazing season full of victories by taking gold in the senior girls

javelin – and by the closest of margins at that. Townsend cleared 36.16 metres and finished in the unlikeliest of ties with Bellevue’s Nicole Kramchynsky. Townsend had been more precise with her throws, though, and had fewer fouls, giving her the gold and slotting Kramchynsky into second place.

Back on wheels: Moose Jaw Derby Guild looking to reignite roller derby in city New club holds first meet-and-greet with goal of building new team Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

In the past, the Lil Chicago Roller Derby Club games would draw hundreds of fans, winning more often than not and even had players crack the provincial team. Then things gradually fell off, until the club was no more. “It was huuuge in Moose Jaw and then it was just the way the timing went with who was busy, who was having kids, who was getting married,” said former member Candy Katerynych. “It just finally worked out with good timing that everyone was able to start coming back together.” And with that, the Moose Jaw Derby Guild was born.

Fern Valley Gas Prices wrong. There ain’t no guy changing the prices. The price is calculated every day by a computer down at Rose Valley. The price per litre is based on mathematical calculations what is based on an Algorithm.” Right! As if I know what an algorithm is. Jim says, “An algorithm is an unambiguous specification of how to solve a class of problems and in this case, the price of Gasoline per litre in Southern Saskatchewan.” “How do they do that?” I asked. “The oil marketing company writes a step by step computer program what tells the computer what they want done. Data like oil cost, labour cost and stuff like that is entered along with the GST, PST and CT. Then the computer executes the program and comes up with the price per litre for Regina. Simple as that. There ain’t no guy in Rose Valley setting the price.” “Okay, but how come gas is often 15 cents a litre more in Moose Jaw than Regina?” Jim says, “Once the computer executes the program and

the price per litre for gasoline is set for Regina the computer executes another algorithm, all on its own. The computer finds and enters the current price of West Texan Intermediate Crude and the price of Western Canadian Select. “The price of Western Canada Crude is then subtracted from the price of West Texan Intermediate. The difference is then divided by 100 and that amount is added to the price per litre for gas in Moose Jaw and Fern Valley.” “It’s that simple?” “It’s that simple. The formula is (WTI – WCS) /100.” Jim said he could explain conditional statements; sequential steps and If – Then branches in the computer algorithm but me and Ed Stubbleweather had had enough. I still like the image of some guy in Rose Valley putting the price up when I need gas or before a long weekend.

Let the Sun Shine by Bob Bellamy

As long as I can remember I’ve always loved sunny days. Regardless of the season, sunshine just makes me feel good. Now that we have installed a roof top solar system on our house the implication of sunlight has a distinctly additional dimension. It’s hard to believe that the solar panels attached to my roof are converting sunlight into electricity that powers our home. Let the sun shine! Going solar was a journey. I’d like to suggest that I converted to roof top solar after conducting an extensive research project into a cost-benefit analysis. “Truth be known” and as is common with most good ideas in my household, the trek began at the suggestion by my wife. While watching a TV movie on a cold evening in February a scene with solar panels in the background prompted a remark. “Look at the solar panels. Wonder if they work in Saskatchewan?” To be honest the movie was a “chick flick” and I was really devoting most of my attention to a tablet perched on my lap. While pretending to relish my wife’s movie selection I secretly Googled solar power in Saskatchewan. I was shocked to learn that much of Saskatchewan was in fact an ideal location to generate electricity from solar panels because of the amount of sunshine the province enjoys. I also learned that Sask Power has a net metering program for roof top solar households, and covers 20% of the cost of installation. Net metering means that your house remains connected to the grid, removing the necessity to store electricity in a costly system of batteries.

Excess energy produced by your rooftop solar system is delivered to the grid. Your household is charged for electricity used and given a credit for electricity delivered. The credit is really important because day length in winter is short meaning you’ll most likely use more than you will deliver. The Google search also listed a number of solar panel installers in Saskatchewan. A few clicks to their websites allowed me to request quotes as to the cost of installing a solar system. By the end of the movie I had managed to apply for three competitive quotes on cost of roof top solar systems while supposedly spending a “quality evening” with my beloved spouse. The next morning I awoke to find 3 emails from installers complete with preliminary drawing of my home’s roof top.



We do live in a changing world. I gave an address in my quote requests. The installers used Google Earth to acquire rough dimensions of my roof and developed a system based on average power usage. To get a more specific quote the only hard data I had to collect was the actual cost paid for electricity in the past year. Net metering does not pay you for the power produced only a credit to be applied to power used. I understand that you can get this info from Sask Power’s website, but once again my “super organized” wife came to the rescue and handed me a stack of Sask Power receipts. Our roof top solar system was hooked onto Sask Powers net metering system May 2017. That was indeed the last time we were charged for electricity usage. There is a small monthly fee paid to Sask Power for access to the grid.

So did it pay to go solar? Yep! In hindsight seems like a no-brainer. Without getting into specific amounts, we used proceeds from a savings account to fund the project. That savings account earned 1.8% interest before paying income tax. The savings on our power bill would be equivalent to those same funds earning 7.5%. In fact the real amount would be significantly higher considering you are not taxed by reducing your household expenses. The solar panels are projected to last 25 years. When you do the math over the lifetime of our roof top solar system you will have saved 3 times todays cost tax free. Now that is a good investment. I’ve purposely avoided the topic of climate change. In today’s crazy world politics seems to have tainted the subject. But the fact remains, in Saskatchewan solar is a renewable energy source that competes with conventional power production. So regardless whether you install solar to save the world or simply to save your money it just makes sense! An interesting side effect of going solar is that even though my roof top covers all of our electrical costs it has also changed my behavior. I now shut the light off when I leave a room! Every lightbulb in the house has been changed to LED. I no longer use the TV to provide background noise and even shut the computer off when not in use! These changes have significantly reduced my power usage. In fact, I now produce considerably more power than I use. This surplus produces enough power to fuel an electric car - but that`s another story to follow J.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith

Savor the Flavour Salty or sweet, what is your pick? I lean towards the sweet side of snacks... maybe I need a little sweetening up? Chocolate would be my go-to if I had to choose but ice cream is my second choice and especially in the summer, I enjoy taking a break with an ice cream treat. I come by that honestly, being raised by an ice-cream loving dad. Although Lil Sweet Pea and I would reach for a sweet, Hubby and Big Sweet Pea salivate over the savory and salty treats. However, when it comes to eating a main course, I am all about the nutritious, delicious use of fresh ingredients presented in a palate-pleasing plate of food. The definition of savoury is: pleasant or agreeable in taste or smell. Something savory is often paired with something sweet in a food dish such as ham and pineapple pizza or herbs combined with mango for a mango salsa. When it comes to enjoying a sweet treat or a savoury snack, it is best enjoyed when eaten slowly to savor every bite. I must admit, I have been guilty of gobbling my food up in a hurry and I have been training myself to slow down and appreciate what I am putting in my mouth. Melissa Michaels suggests in her book, “Dwelling,” that we need to learn the art of savoring in our lives. It is the act of slowing down and soaking up joy in the moment. If I was to mention that most people feel frazzled and disconnected, I’m confident I would get a resounding “yes.” In the years of raising children and balancing work and play, we find ourselves pulling our hair out and all the while, life is passing us by. We find we aren’t doing what is important or priority; we are doing what is in our face and screaming our name. In this chaotic environment we may find ourselves in, I want to encourage you that there is a way out. It may not be an immediate release but if you are willing to make small changes, you will begin to stop and smell the roses and be present in the here and now. There are many ways we can incorporate “savoring” in our lives. We can use our senses to savor life such as creating an area in our home that is visually appealing, using essential oils or candles to stimulate the sense of smell, providing touchable materials in your home that invoke rest and relaxation, gather round a table to eat a delicious homemade meal or turn on a favorite album or savor the sound of a bubbling water fountain. Start by developing a mindset that does not say “yes” to everything that passes by... and begin to give yourself permission to prioritize what is important to you in order to nurture your soul and spirit. Melissa mentions that “as we open ourselves to fully savor what is meaningful to us, we experience a new level of wonder and awe for living. It’s time to open up that wonder and imagination that we once enjoyed as children. Begin to make choices in our everyday experiences to savor the moments. Live life well today. Savor the moments.

St. Andrew’s United Church

NEWS FLASH: Trinity United Church is still open for business, contrary to what some people are being led to believe. Our Little Country Church in the City is alive and well. Yes! Our congregation has ben shrinking due to a number of our older members passing away, but we still hold services each Sunday. Unlike some churches whom only have one minister, we have four: Pastor Doug Shepherd, Rev. Walter Engel, Rev. Ron Cairns and Rev. Phil Sigglekow. If you are looking for a small friendly church to join or just to go to for an occasional service, why not give us a try. We will not overwhelm you, but we will welcome you with open arms. You will probably come to realize that we are supporting and donating to the same organizations and projects that you believe in such as Hunger In Moose Jaw, Salvation Army, Riverside Mission and Transition House, just to name a few. We also like to work on fun projects and have heard that our fowl suppers and stew suppers rival any in Moose Jaw. We can be contacted at 306.692.5445 or email . We just recently received our own website and can be found on facebook as well. If we do not answer, please leave a message on the answering service and we will return your call as soon as possible.

History of Trinity United Church Trinity began in 1909 as a little Methodist Mission on south hill. The first service was held in a tent at this location, 277 Iroquois St. W. The congregation moved into their newly constructed church, known as Wesley Methodist Church in 1910. Following a tragic fire in 2001, there was about $100,000 damages to the building which fortunately was covered by insurance. With hard work and the dedication of the members, we were able to reconstruct the main body of the church and have continued to serve the community on south hill. Activities at the church include an active U.C.W., choir, monthly pot lunch, lunches, and Holy Yoga classes with a certified yoga instructor. Services are held at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday. Come and join us at “The Little Country Church” in the city – a very informed and friendly church. Everyone is welcome!

George Albert Joseph Axon George Albert Joseph Axon left us peacefully on Friday, June 14, 2019. George is survived by his loving family, wife Pat; daughters Janice (Dale) Smith, Judy (Shell) Smillie; son Joe (Jeanny) Axon; grandchildren Chad, Shane (Laura) , Carly and Andrew Smith, Leanne (Ken) Patzack, Cydney and Devin Axon; five great grandchildren Curtis, Austin and Blake Smith and Lyla and Liam Patzack; sisters Ethel, Wilma (Richard), Violet (Jerry) and their families; Pat’s brothers Dick (Shirley), Vern and their families as well as numerous nieces and nephews on both sides of the family. Predeceased by many family members. George was born in Regina and moved to Moose Jaw as a young boy and attended school in Moose Jaw. He became a journeyman printer and worked at Western Press and Moose Jaw Times Herald. St. John’s Anglican Church benefited from his many hours of volunteering, which lead to him being appointed the Director of Administration for Diocese of Qu’Appelle travelling coast to coast on many committees. Two highlights of his career were receiving the Anglican Award of Merit presented to him by the Primate Michael Peers and the second was coordinating the Royal Visit to St. John’s Anglican Church by the Queen, Prince Phillip and Prince Edward in 1978. George and Pat together demonstrated the importance of family whether it be hosting family fun at their home or attending family functions. George was always up for a coffee or a drive out in the countryside to see Saskatchewan. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Moose Jaw Humane Society or the Heartland Hospice Foundation in Moose Jaw. A private family service will be held at a later date. In living memory of George, a memorial planting will be made by Jones - Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website: or (Obituaries). Dayna Chamberlain - Funeral Director

HESKETH, Mary Joan (nee Davidson) JANUARY 10, 1922 - JUNE 11, 2019

Mary passed away peacefully with family by her side in Regina General Hospital on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at the age of 97 years. She was predeceased by her parents, Earl and Gladys Davidson; her sisters Dorothy Mitchell and Joyce Willfong; and her beloved husband of 69 years, John Hesketh; Mary is survived by her sons Peter and Terry; her daughters-in-law Lynn Troskey and Bohdanna Dackiw; her grandchildren Markian and Taisa; her sister Margery Gearhart; her brother and sister-in-law Leonard and Eleanor Davidson; her brother-in-law Harold Willfong; and many nieces and nephews. Mary, the eldest of five, grew up in Moose Jaw where she was a competitive long distance championship swimmer. After one of her many wins, the Times Herald called her the ”Mermaid of Moose Jaw”. During World War II, she met her future husband John Hesketh, a member of the Royal Air Force, and they were married in Moose Jaw on November 7, 1942. In January 1944, she sailed to England to be near her husband when he was recalled to Britain. Mary was conscripted to do war work and joined the National Fire Service in Liverpool as a telephone switchboard operator. After the war, they lived in Married Quarters at R.A.F stations near York, Cambridge and Oxford. In 1952, Mary and John returned to Canada to settle in Moose Jaw with their two young sons, Peter and Terry. When John joined National Light and Power, later SaskPower, they moved often and subsequently lived in Humboldt, Saskatoon and Regina. Wherever she lived, Mary was active in the Anglican Church Women’s Auxiliary and Altar Guild, as well as a member of the Daughters of the Nile and Women’s Auxiliary to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. She was a long time employee of Eaton’s, having worked in Moose Jaw, Saskatoon and Regina. Mary had many interests. She was the consummate hostess and was well-known for her chocolate chip cookies and matrimonial cake. Mary enjoyed gardening alongside John and spending time in Hawaii. Above all, she loved her husband, her children and grandchildren, her dear sisters and brother and their families. She will be greatly missed by all. In the last three and a half years of her life, Mary lived at Qu’Appelle House and very briefly at Lutheran House. The family would like to thank all the staff for the care and love they extended to Mum. A special thank you to the staff of Regina General Hospital Emergency Ward and the Neurosciences 5th floor for their professional and compassionate care of our Mum during her final days. In accordance with Mum’s wishes, a private interment will be held at a later date. To leave an online message of condolence please visit
