The Saskatchewan Barrel Racing Association will be taking over the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds for their Provincial Finals during Aug. 14-16, with a record number of talented barrel racers ready to compete. This is the first year the SBRA has hosted their finals in Moose Jaw in around 20 years, and SBRA president Shasta Hanna credits the venue change to the convenience of the facilities here. “There’s lots of extra parking and it’s all grass, and the facility workers are really great to work with, they’ve been nothing but helpful,” said Hanna. “The central-ness of Moose Jaw [is also great] too, we’re bringing it back to central Saskatchewan.” Competitors will take to the arena beginning Aug. 14 with the Barrel Bonanza, a separate competition featuring offspring from nominated Saskatchewan stallions. Over 60 barrel racers are signed up to take part in the Barrel Bonanza this year, before things move on to the provincial runs. With approximately 500 barrel racers, aged four to over 50, set to take a shot at a provincial title and 695 runs scheduled throughout the three days, the grounds are expecting to see over 1,200 people visit the event — and Moose Jaw. The Open event will see 459 barrel racers compete, as well

as 130 Youth racers and 45 Peewee racers — the next generation of barrel racers getting their start in the fast-paced sport. Competitors in each age category will take a shot at clocking in one of the top times, for a chance to win up to $10,000 in cash and other impressive prizes — including saddles, valued at about $2,500 and champion belt buckles. Hanna finds the sport is on the rise in Saskatchewan as of late and is looking forward to seeing it continue in the future. Attendance to the event is free, and everyone is welcome to come down to the Exhibition Grounds to experience the fast-paced sport kicking up dust across the prairies. The event will have runs happening from 7am to about 8pm on Aug. 14 and 15, with a shorter day on Aug. 16 running from 8 a.m. to about 4 p.m. Final awards in each age category will be presented following the wrap up of events on the last day. A more detailed schedule of the event is available at www. saskbarrelracing.ca. “Come out and have a good time, enjoy the horses and all the therapeutic [vibes] that comes from being around horses,” said Hanna.

Japanese students experience friendly hospitality in Moose Jaw Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Thirteen elementary students from Yokohama, Japan are learning more about Prairie life and just how friendly Moose Jaw is during a week-long visit. The students — aged nine to 12 — are from Spike & Ai International After School, an educational institute where youths practise their English while acquiring experiences and skills for the future. Students can spend up to four hours a day practising English after their regular school has finished for the day. More information about Spike & Ai can be found at https://international.spikeandai.com. Yokohama has a population of more than 3.7 million and is 8,532 kilometres from Moose Jaw. Former Moose Jaw resident Arron Dobrescu is the head of Spike & Ai and has brought students to Moose Jaw for nine years as part of his Canada Homestay program. He moved to Japan 16 years ago to teach English, where he eventually married and had children. After teaching kindergarten, he started his own school and slowly built up the institution. Now after 14 years, he has 36 employees, nearly 1,000 students, two main school buildings and 11 satellite locations. As part of the homestay program, students live with Moose Jaw families as they tour the city and area. The goal is to broaden students’ horizons about other cultures and have them think and speak in English every day to eliminate language anxiety. From Aug. 1 to 9, students played at Crescent Park, swam at the Natatorium, camped at Buffalo Pound, visited the University of Regina, took in the Queen City Ex, spent a full day with their host families, visited the radio station, toured the Babich farm and participated in a Sayonara party and culture exchange, before flying home. Grade 4 student Hinata Suzuki, 9, is excited about the

trip — she has never visited a farm before — and about staying with her host family, the Chubeys. “I want to play in the pool and play with the (Chubeys’) dog,” Suzuki said with nearly flawless English. “And go shopping to buy sandals.” Dobrescu, trip chaperones and host families welcomed the students to Moose Jaw on Aug. 1 with a pizza party at A.E. Peacock Collegiate. The students were probably jet-lagged since they didn’t sleep on the plane ride due to their excitement, Dobrescu said. It was an adventure simply to get on the plane, he continued, since the airline cancelled the flight at the last

minute. The group spent 10 hours in the airport before the airline found them a hotel. The group was back at the airport the next day. “It has been a long two days, but the kids are enjoying themselves,” Dobrescu remarked. Dobrescu laid out the ground rules for the students before they left with their host families: speak English only, keep their rooms clean and write in their journals daily. While Dobrescu could have taken his students to Vancouver, Banff or Toronto, he pointed out students would have heard Japanese spoken everywhere there, which is counterproductive. He remarked that Moose Jaw’s slogan was “The Friendly City,” which he believes is true since residents say hello on the streets and in businesses. Although Yokohama is 10 times larger than Moose Jaw in population, the students consider The Friendly City to be big since the roads are wider, the cars are bigger and houses are larger, Dobrescu said. He added that Japan — with a population of 130 million — could geographically fit inside Saskatchewan. The students will be safe on Moose Jaw’s streets since most people know their neighbours, said Dobrescu. Since he grew up here, this trip also allows him to share his past life with the students. “The host families are (also) my friends; I trust them,” he added. One of the host parents whom Dobrescu appreciates having is Tana Arnott, who has supported the program since the beginning. Dobrescu joked that Arnott — who is also the vice-principal of Peacock — makes his life easier while here. “It’s an amazing experience. It’s something my (own) kids look forward to every single summer,” said Arnott. “It’s awesome.”

Oil and Gas Processing Incentive Benefits Moose Jaw MLA’s Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

On Thursday, August 1, Premier Scott Moe visited Moose Jaw to introduce the Oil and Gas Processing Investment Incentive (OGPII) and announced that Gibson Energy was its first successful applicant. Saskatchewan has a thriving industrial sector which helps boost our economy. Our resources and the revenue they provide support important services for the people of our province such as, health care, education, social supports and infrastructure. Our government has helped industry and businesses by maintaining one of the strongest investment climates in the country, and as a result, Saskatchewan has one of the strongest national job and wage growth records over the last decade. Flourishing businesses help our municipalities, towns and cities thrive. The Targeted Mineral Exploration Incentive was announced in September 2018 and is leading to increased drilling activity for base metals, precious metals and diamonds. Now the OGPII will enhance Saskatchewan’s competitiveness in oil and gas development by increasing value-added processing and infrastructure capacity. The OGPII offers transferable royalty/freehold production tax credits for qualified value-added projects at rate of 15 per cent of eligible project costs, for either new facilities, or expansion of existing facilities. The incentive will support oil and gas producers and value-added companies to grow and generate more value from their operations in the province. The OGPII can also be used

to support improved greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions management projects in the sector. Gibson Energy is a leading oil-focused infrastructure company headquartered in Calgary with three facilities in Western Canada, nearly 12 million barrels of storage, and over 500 km of crude pipelines. The Moose Jaw facility runs a heavy crude feedstock, with the resulting light end products composed of tops, heavy and light distillate, while heavy end products include roofing flux and road asphalt. Gibson’s recent expansion employed 37 local contractors, one being Right Choice Energy Services Inc, who hired over 40 local individuals to work on the expansion project. The debottlenecking project will increase throughput capacity by approximately 30 per cent— from 17,000 barrels per day to 22,000 barrels per day— with no increase in GHG emissions, ultimately reducing the facility’s emissions per barrel of oil processed by approximately 20 to 25 per cent. The project makes it possible for the facility to recover and reuse waste heat from products coming out of the refinery, thus reducing the environmental impact. As such, it was an excellent fit for the Oil and Gas Processing Investment Incentive and supports our province’s Methane Action Plan. I want to congratulate Gibson Energy on the important accomplishment. It is great to see businesses and the industry succeed. In partnership with the city and the Government of Saskatchewan, I am often impressed with the innovation and determination of our business leaders. I enjoy hearing the ideas, visions and suggestions of these talented individuals. If you have thoughts of how to keep our province growing, we welcome your comments.

Co-author of grains policy book has disturbing comments for Canadian farmers By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express The co-author of a recently published book EXPRESS on the grain industry in the former Soviet Union paints a picture disturbing to Canadian grain growers. “We got some huge competition coming, especially from these regions,� says Professor Andy Schmitz of the University of Florida. The former Central Butte resident says the three countries – Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine – have developed formidable grain production with continually increasing yields. Russia has mostly converted large state farms into privatized farms using modern agricultural practices. Driving on one of these farms is like driving onto a Canadian farm with modern John Deere, International and New Holland tractors. The old cumbersome Russian-made Don combines are in machinery graveyards. “I was quite surprised to see how much soil testing they do

AGRIMART

and how much fertilizer they use. Part of that explains why they got the increase in yields.� These farms have their own soil testing labs analyzing six samples from each half-section of land. Nothing matches the wheat production graph for Ukraine, which has one-third of the world’s best land. “I think the Ukraine has unlimited potential to increase yield,� Schmitz said. “You can make some tremendous predictions about where the world grain trade is headed. If you’re a farmer, you’ll shake your head and say: ‘I hope you’re not right.’ “In terms of the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) commodity forecasts they actually argue that three countries together — Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine — will actually have more wheat exports than the U.S. production is going to be. “They’re forecasting almost 40 per cent of the world share of wheat and 36 or 37 per cent of total grains� production from these countries.

Randy Palmer Dr. Steven Heidinger Wanda Smith

Sometimes I wonder where we as a society are going. No wonder different generations have a hard time of grasping life as it is in comparison to life as it was a generation or two ago. The kitchen has always been the hub of the household and most social gatherings centered around food made in that kitchen. Families gathered around the table to break bread together and share their daily comings-and-goings. Friends Joan Ritchie EDITOR dropped by for coffee and cake; and there was always something homemade to share. Apparently not so in this day and age. According to a recent news report, citing Toronto as the city where this is becoming more common, stoves in the kitchen are no longer a necessity. The thinking behind this is the fact that apartments and other dwellings have very small living space, so the first thing thought to go is the kitchen stove. As it seems, the report noted that people are living a very busy lifestyle nowadays and there is no longer time in one’s day to prepare anything to eat. Food prepared in stores, the deli, ordered through skip-the-dishes or wherever has taken the place of food prepared at home, to be just warmed up when needed. There is also the fact that greater populations in many countries demand smaller living spaces, basically only enough room to accommodate a little more than sleeping quarters. Society lives, eats and socializes on the streets and individuals only go home to sleep. We witnessed this in Hong Kong a few years ago, and I think that large cities like New York and Toronto are dealing with the same issues, as well. I guess the space where the stove once was, will now make room for an occasional chair to throw clothes on at the end of the day, rather than piling them up on the stove. And now that the stove is gone, will there be any need for a fridge? ************** And another item causing some questions as to where we as a society are going… In this age of social media where individuals are constantly using social networks to interact, the findings are that these same individuals are experiencing greater isolation, loneliness and depression. According to a study published in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology, it concludes there is a causal link between the use of social media and negative effects on well-being, primarily depression and loneliness. Even with an established causal link, there still remains a larger, unanswered question as to why this happens, and how could social networks be unhealthy for our mental health through networks designed to bring individuals closer together? One theory points to the fact that because people are generally dealing with very curated content, there is more social comparison. And because there are many social platforms to use and people are continually on them for FOMO (fearof-missing-out), this generates more comparisons leading to depression. According to the data, *“the bottom line says that social media use can harm your mental health, especially when it’s used more frequently.” *https://www.healthline.com/health-news/social-media-use-increases-depression-and-loneliness

Sleepy Simpson was once heart of west’s petroleum industry By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

The museum at Simpson, north of Moose Jaw, has been a want-to-visit place since writing a piece on the village history several years ago. On this mid-July day a friend and Yours Truly made the drive on Highway Two North. The small museum is located on the second floor of the old Legion building. The RM administrator seemed puzzled why we wanted to see the museum when we have no connection to the town. Someone did a lot of work compiling and building the collection from the early days village model, to the clothing and memorabilia. Today nobody would suspect this sleepy well-kept farm centre was among the first oil towns in the West. In 1925 Simpson Oil was formed 23 years after the first oil discovery in Western Canada at Waterton, Alberta and 24 years before the iconic Leduc Number One came in near Edmonton. Settlers digging wells on their farms kept encountering oil seepage, which led to consulting a geologist to determine the potential. Local farmers pooled 20,000 acres of leases and raised $462,000 from sale of shares. That was a lot of money considering the Saskatchewan Government budget was $7 million. Drilling started in 1926. A natural gas explosion set drilling back but the company eventually hit oil at 2,258 feet. One achievement was discovering a natural gas pool between Simpson and Imperial that supplied both towns. A well that found salt just north of Simpson was the major success. Directors purchased and installed a salt processing plant with 20 tons a day production capacity in 1932. The salt was naturally 99.9 per cent pure. Ron Kennedy, who came to the museum while we were there, said the

First well salt needed no processing. “It was sold in boxes like Sifto Salt,” he said. “Only it said Simpson Salt on the box.” The drilling rig used by the company is part of the Western Development Museum collection in Saskatoon. Manufacture and sale of salt “proved reasonably satisfactory from a financial standpoint,” according to a company annual report. Profits were re-invested in drilling a number of test holes for oil and several wells through to 1934. “The Simpson Oil Company Limited is the only oil company in the province to undertake exploration work on such a large scale…” said the 1934 report. Simpson Oil closed operations for a few years in the 1930s, ceasing business in 1945. Simpson’s role in the development of the Western Canadian petroleum industry faded into history. Travelling around town we saw the unique tower on the 1915 era United Church, now housing antiques and the 1905 hotel still serving as a meeting place for residents.

TRADING THOUGHTS

How do you go back to the country from which your family came to Canada? American president Donald Trump tweets recently implied that four coloured Congress women should go back to the countries they came from. The fact that three of them were born in the United States and a fourth is a naturalized citizen didn’t bother him. Trump just said if you by Ron Walter don’t like it here leave the country. It seems blonde blue-eyed whites are his favourite race. This situation got me thinking: What if Canadian politicians had the right to tell us to go back where we, or our ancestors, came from? My partner would have a choice coming from a mixture of English, Dutch, German and Irish bloodlines. The English wet damp climate wouldn’t suit her. Holland is too close to the frothy sea for her. She can’t stand the smell of beer or sauerkraut but loves Celtic music so Ire-

land would be her choice. Going back to where my ancestors came from would be rather difficult. My ancestors took part in one of the two great migrations of Germans to Russia when Czar Catherine the Great, a German by birth, invited and paid them to colonize and farm the uninhabited lands the Russians couldn’t or wouldn’t settle. When the Russians retracted promises of freedom from military conscription and local government, these German-Russians did another migration to North America and helped colonize that continent. Going back would be nearly impossible. My paternal grandparents came from the Caucasus region. My maternal grandparents came from Bessarabia, then part of Russia, later part of Romania, now part of the Republic of Moldavia. None of those places would want the grandson of people they encouraged to leave in the early 1900s to return and take up residence. There is the remote possibility of returning to that part of

SGI reports a continued decrease in traffic injuries over last decade Larissa Kurz In 2018, SGI recorded a 34 per cent drop in injuries and a 9 per cent drop in fatalities caused due to traffic collisions from the previous ten years of data, indicating that the province is on a downward trend. Preliminary data released recently concludes that 4,220 people were injured in traffic collisions last year and 129 people were killed, lower than the yearly averages from 2008-2017 which saw 6,353 injuries and 142 deaths. Last year’s numbers were also lower across the four major categories of traffic infractions resulting in fatalities — impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding, and improper seatbelt use — compared to the ten-year average. As nearly every traffic collision involves one, if not more, of the above driving behaviours, lower numbers indicate that drivers are taking better care when hitting the road. Buckling up, obeying speed limits, paying attention, and putting down the phone are all easy ways of driving safer and more responsibly. SGI hopes to see drivers continue choosing safe driving practices on Saskatchewan roads, to keep the trend in traffic-related injuries and fatalities going downward.

Germany from which my ancestors left almost 300 years ago. Many of us would face a similar dilemma if our political leaders had the power to make us go back to where we, or our ancestors, came from. Our Indigenous people would have a real problem returning to Siberia after 10,000 years in North America. And they would need a bridge over the Bering Strait for it was solid land then. The notion of sending people back where they came from is ridiculous. We are incredibly lucky to live in this beautiful land governed by a democratic process. Let’s not forget our good fortune.

Juvenile burrowing owls now on the hunt for food Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Motorists are encouraged to keep their eyes open for juvenile burrowing owls, which have begun to leave their nests in search of food. For the past several weeks, the parents of juvenile owls have been tending and feeding them. Now they are independent and ready to learn how to fly and hunt for themselves, explained Kaytlyn Burrows, habitat stewardship co-ordinator with Nature Saskatchewan. Late July and August are when the owls are out or perched on fence posts. However, it is also a dangerous time for the birds. Burrowing owls can be identified by their mottled brown and white feathers, their stilt-like legs, and their bright yellow eyes. The birds are about the size of a robin, with a height of about 23 centimetres (nine inches), but they have large wings compared to the rest of their small body. They are commonly found in native or tame grasslands and will use the burrows of badgers, ground squirrels, and other burrowing mammals for nesting. This is a critical time in the owls’ lifecycle since they are a bit like teenagers, Burrows continued. They have hatched, are growing up and are learning to fend for themselves. They are keen to be independent, but are inexperienced and a little clumsy. The owls tend to forage for food on the roads and in the ditches. “At dusk the (gravel) road surface tends to be warmer

than surrounding grasslands, attracting many small insects and rodents and as a result, young owls are also attracted and they begin searching for prey,” said Burrows. For this reason, the juveniles are at a greater risk of collision with vehicles, which contributes to the decline in their numbers. Motorists can prevent collisions by reducing their speed and watching for burrowing owls on or near the road. If motorists should hit a burrowing owl, they should call Nature Saskatchewan at 1-306-780-9273 or the Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre in Moose Jaw at 1-306-692-8710. If the bird is injured, Burrows

explained, it might be possible to rehabilitate the bird. However, if motorists accidentally kill an owl, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum is willing to take the carcass and use it for research. The juvenile burrowing owls will gain experience through time, said Burrows. They start migrating at the end of September to southern Texas and Mexico, at which point they are better at flying and hunting. “If they can make it to that point, they have a much better chance of survival,” she continued. They will migrate back north at the end of March. Nature Saskatchewan is unsure how many burrowing owls — which are listed on a federal endangered species list — live in Canada. Burrows noted that as of 2015, there were thought to be 270 owls across the country, with about 100 of those birds in Saskatchewan alone. “I think it has to do with their preferred habitat,” she said. Besides living underground, they also forage in flat or rolling topography. Most of their main nesting grounds are in southwest Saskatchewan, since that is the most suitable terrain for them. If anyone sees a burrowing owl, you should call the Hoot line at 1-800-667-HOOT (4668). Or, visit Nature Saskatchewan at www.naturesask.ca/home.

Yoga fundraiser for HeartlandLarissa Hospice embodies the healing cause Kurz Local instructor Megan Welwood is inviting everyone to join her at two Yoga in the Park sessions in support of Heartland Hospice. Welwood approached the organization to express interest in collecting donations for their ongoing palliative care room project, and Heartland Hospice was The first session will be on Aug. 20 at 6:30 p.m., and Welwood will have the group focusing on yoga to calm the mind and relax the body. The second session, titled Cultivating Mindful Awareness, will be on Aug. 27 at 6:30 p.m., and will likely include some meditation alongside yoga poses. The first of Welwood’s sessions will meet on the north side of the lawn bowling courts in Crescent Park, while the second will meet in the Crescent Park event centre. Both are open to anyone interested in joining. The only thing Welwood asks is that attendees bring with them a donation of any amount, to give to Heartland Hos-

pice. For Welwood, the cause is one that has impacted her family and many others, which is why she decided to offer her support. “A family member experienced a terminal illness and it became very apparent how vital palliative and hospice care was in those final days,” said Welwood in an

email to the Express. “[I] felt that offering yoga and mindfulness classes in support would be a meaningful way to give back and support such an important organization and all the work that they do.” Lana Lalonde, communications coordinator at Heartland Hospice, is grateful for the attention for their cause.

“Being able to slow the body, calm the mind, and relax is a big part of being able to heal and have that overall wellness, so we were really excited when she approached us to do this type of an event in support of our cause, because it is actually a very big part of healing,” said Lalonde. Heartland Hospice recently announced the opening of their first palliative care room in Moose Jaw, located at the Pioneer Lodge, and Lalonde says that developing more rooms are currently on the agenda for the organization. All donations are currently put towards supplying the current and future palliative care room with the things it needs, as well as to support families while they stay in the room. Lalonde is happy for community support and donations to the non-profit and encourages people to RSVP to either Yoga in the Park events on Facebook, to give Welwood a better idea of how many she can expect.

Megan Nash gets in touch with nature for songwriting camp Scott Hellings

Once again, Moose Jaw’s Megan Nash is going to be helping a group of songwriters and nature lovers combine their interests. Nash is one of four facilitators who will be leading the Songwriting 4 Nature camp on Sept. 12-15 at Last Mountain Lake’s Arlington Beach. A similar camp was held back in May. “It is a program that I have been fortunate to be a part of for the last few years now,” said Nash. “Our mandate is to encourage folks to reconnect with nature and then to explore the songwriting process through that. We do have people who come to these camps that directly write songs about nature and write songs about the spaces that we are in, and then other people get snippets of songs and take it from there. It really varies from person to person.” While songwriting is one component of the workshop, Nash says they also take time for activities like hiking or birding. She adds it is a great learning experience. “It is always inspiring to hear about other people’s process,” said Nash. “I grew up on a farm and I live out in the country now, so it is really important for me to be close to nature. I find I draw a lot of inspiration from that as well…I usually leave with a few different ideas.”

Megan Nash at an earlier workshop (photo provided) Nash, along with fellow facilitators Ryan Hicks, Glenn Sutter and Kara Golemba, will lead several workshops and presentations on songwriting. Eventually, everyone will collaborate on a group song. “I was fortunate enough to facilitate the last group song, which was really fun. It was an interesting challenge because we had over 20 songwriters contributing to one song, so how do you balance that and

make sure everybody gets heard? It was a fun challenge to steer that ship.” Of course, Nash is also gearing up for her upcoming show at the Cultural Centre on Sept. 7 with special guests Scotch & Water. She says the show will be your first chance to hear some of her new material. Tickets are available now. “I’m really excited. The Mae Wilson Theatre is one of my favourite places to play

in the entire world. I love that theatre. I’m really excited for the band from Germany to come —I still can’t believe they are coming here. I won’t believe it until I pick them up from the airport that they are actually physically in Canada. It is going to be very surreal for me; I met them when I was on tour over there.” Registration for the songwriting camp is open from now until Aug. 30. The camp is designed for adult songwriters, regardless of experience. “If you are just a lyricist and you don’t play guitar or an instrument, well that is why these kinds of camps are so beneficial, because maybe you will meet somebody that you want to work with. Or you can work on your lyrics too; you don’t need to be a singer/songwriter to attend these camps,” said Nash. “At the end of the day, this program encourages you to slow down and to be aware of your surroundings and how you feel. It is about the process.” More information about the camp and how to register is available online at https://royalsaskmuseum.ca/rsm/visit/ event-calendar

Celebrity guide dog makes friends at Kinsmen Inclusion Centre Larissa Kurz

The Kinsmen Inclusion Centre welcomed Bonnie Giacovelli and her guide dog companion Kermit the Newf for a meet and greet on Aug. 6, much to the delight of the crowd. Giacovelli and Kermit talked about the many roles that Kermit plays, and what that means for their daily lives. As a guide dog and a therapy dog, Kermit helps Giacovelli with her multiple sclerosis symptoms. As a draft dog, Kermit is able to pull a cart behind him to help Giacovelli with her errands, such as getting groceries. And, as a model and actor, Kermit has appeared in many print ads and commercials as well as his own picture books, to share his story with others. Kermit’s the star of two children’s books, with more in the works, and he spends a lot of time out and about interacting with people. Giacovelli read one of her books about Kermit, before answering questions about Kermit’s service dog training and taking Kermit around to meet everyone in the room. Their appearances, like this one in Moose Jaw and Kermit’s regular appearances at his local library in Florida as well as various schools, create visibility for Guide Dogs and allows people to see and ask questions about service dogs.

Bonnie reads from her first book about Kermit, titled The Adventures of Kermit the Newf: Dog Tales, while an off-duty Kermit takes a nap at her feet.

All of that petting was welcomed with a sloppy kiss from Kermit.

Giacovelli and Kermit were certainly a hit with those gathered at the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre.

While Kermit woke up from a satisfying nap, he was welcomed with some satisfying pets from members of the crowd.

Kermit made a trip around the room to say hello to everyone there.

Cleaning service consolidator business bears putting on watch list Investors sometimes score large gains by following and investing in consolidating companies and industry. Three of the best-known recent industry consolidators are Alimentation Couche-Tarde in the convenience store business, Saputo in the global cheese business, and Park Lawn Corporation in the funeral business. Consolidators grow large by acquisition

of locations in an industry, becoming low cost operators. Often, they grow by acquiring mom and pop family operations that are difficult to sell as Park Lawn has done with funeral homes. A relatively new entrant on the consolidator business model is Quebec-based GDI Integrated Facilities Inc. Started in 1926 as a cleaning business,

GDI became interested in growth by buyouts in the 1980s with a public listing in 2007. The company offers contracted services on fixed-price or cost-plus terms for cleaning, records management, heating ventilation and air conditioning and complementary services. Clients come from a range of sectors: hotels, office and apartment buildings, national retailers, shopping centres, health care and government/military buildings Expansion into the U.S. has one-fifth of business from south of the border. Seventy per cent of all revenues come from cleaning with 27 per cent from technical services. Since 2014 assets have grown from $4 million to an astounding $616 million with plenty of operations left to acquire for improvement on efficiency. Employees number 20,000 with 13 U.S. locations, and 21 in Canada, including Regina. Operations in this sector are hard to sell for a decent value. GDI can offer a good price with a combination of cash and GDI shares. Profit for next year is expected to grow by 25 per cent, meaning investors have put a nice premium on shares trading at 26 times next year’s estimated earnings. Management is critical in consolidating of companies. About 80 per cent of corporate

acquisitions don’t work out well, so management becomes key. New management since 2015 has done extremely well at consolidating all the new partners. With all the acquisitions total debt has been kept at a reasonable 31 per cent of assets. Given that controlling shareholders have multiple voting shares and own 42 per cent of the subordinate shares there is little opportunity investors will see the company sold out under them, unless by the controlling shareholders. At a recent $28.27 shares are up almost 15 per cent since June. Low price for the year is $16.30 bringing investors almost 100 per cent gain so far this year. Investors may want to wait for a drop-in price before nibbling on GDI, but be forewarned: hot stocks often don’t fall back in price. This stock is for investors with strong stomachs for risk.

Hot Pressure Washers!!

It is time to get serious about chronic pain

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor I remember preparing for my interview to get into chiropractic college. I researched the definition of chiropractic, the history of chiropractic, the name of the first chiropractor (born in Canada as a matter of fact), and I visited many chiropractors to get their advice on how to get through the interview process. The one thing they all warned me of was how NOT to answer the question, “Why do you want to become a chiropractor?” Apparently, it’s too predictable and too wishy-washy to respond with, “Because I want to help people.” So, there I was, sweating in my 1980’s oversized suit, in front of a panel of my future peers… “Why do you want to be a chiropractor?” “To help people.” I thought that I blew it. But really, that’s what it is all about, isn’t it? To help people?

I chose this career because a chiropractor helped me. I used to suffer from chronic pain with recurrent migraines and constant neck pain. Chronic pain is a problem affecting many in this country. Approximately 1 in 5 Canadians suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain affects Canadians in so many ways. According to Health Canada, chronic pain can have a significant impact on quality of life and general health. It can lead to stress, anxiety, sadness, depression, anger, frustration, and even suicide. Chronic pain affects our ability to think, sleep and maintain meaningful relationships. There is economic consequence as well. Chronic pain can lead to school and work absenteeism and loss of productivity. And of course, there are the health care costs of treating those with chronic pain. Chronic pain is now classified as a disease itself, according to the World Health Organization. Millions of Canadians have this disease and they all need to be helped. So, what is being done to help those that suffer from chronic pain? As recently as March of this year, the government of Canada formed the Canadian Pain Task Force in an effort to provide guidance for the decision-makers of our health care system in their task to better understand, treat and prevent chronic pain.

Professional organizations such as medicine, psychology, physiotherapy, pharmacy and chiropractic play a large role in chronic pain management. The Task Force considers inter-disciplinary collaboration to be the gold standard in the management of chronic pain in Canada. In other words, we all want to help people and we all need to work together. While chronic pain does not discriminate and affects all demographics, it tends to burden certain populations more. Elderly, poverty stricken, indigenous peoples and veterans are just a few of the demographics who suffer more from chronic pain. The Canadian Pain Task Force June Report is available to read on the Health Canada website available at https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/corporate/ about-health-canada/public-engagement/external-advisory-bodies/canadian-pain-task-force/report-2019.html#mess Look for my articles in the coming weeks to further dive into the findings of this report.

Briercrest College now offering university-level psychology degrees Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

After a five-year wait, Briercrest College has received official authorization to offer its Bachelor of Arts in psychology degree as an official university-level program. Briercrest applied for recognition from the Saskatchewan Higher Education Quality Assurance Board in 2014 and received approval this month after a thorough review process. With this authorization, the college now offers four university-level programs: psychology, history, humanities and English. The psychology program launched in 2012 and has grown to become one of Briercrest’s largest. “The process of authorization is a lengthy one,” chuckled Dr. Don Taylor, dean of the college. He explained that Briercrest had to conduct a one-year self-study of the program, followed by a public consultation, a program review, an external review and responses to the external review. This makes for an extensive process that can’t be done in two to three years. The Saskatchewan Higher Education Quality Assurance Board gave Briercrest initial authorization in 2018 but with conditions. The college had to hire more professors and make changes to the program itself, Taylor continued. These conditions are common when working in — and dealing with — government. “It’s not a rubber-stamping of something. It’s a thorough going-over,” he added. Taylor is thrilled that the college received this recognition. He explained it will set

up students for further study and provide them with a quality education. Alumni of the program will benefit as well, since they can now upgrade their degree to a university-level one with as little as one extra course. “This is the seal of approval that allows (students) to go forward and go to graduate studies,” he said, “and further professional qualifications that demonstrates the degree is at that university-quality level.” Getting into graduate studies programs can be competitive, so students need credentials that are recognized, Taylor continued. Having a university-level undergraduate degree would help with that quest. This authorization means students can make their faith a priority without com-

promising on academics — a balance that Briercrest is committed to providing. Taylor noted that the college believes the Christian faith “is an intellectual adventure” stretching back millennia. “We recognize that since the roots of Church history, that education and faith have gone together, and God has made a world that we can study and learn from,”

he said. “And we need to demonstrate the quality of work we do as well.” Taylor added that it’s important for students to foster their faith and relationship with God as they work in the world and in various disciplines. Briercrest hopes to offer more university-level degrees in the future. “As Christians, there are things we believe about the human condition that sometimes line up perfectly with what we see in mainstream psychology. In others, there can be more areas of controversy,” Dr. Charles Hackney, chair of the psychology department, said in a news release. “At Briercrest, we’re able to explore these issues and try to develop an understanding of what it means to be human that is both to Scripture and also to the current state of the field.” Briercrest alumni with bachelor degrees in psychology have gone on to graduate studies at Briercrest Seminary, Trinity Western University and the University of Vermont. Online applications are open at briercrestcollege.ca.

U.S.-based Spectra receives positive reviews from Canadian customers Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Spectra Venue Management Services appears to have a solid reputation and strong work ethic in the communities in which it operates, based on research the Moose Jaw Express has conducted. Spectra is set to take over management operations at Mosaic Place this fall. It operates 13 other arenas, convention centres and performing arts venues in eight Canadian municipalities; it also manages dozens of venues in the United States. The Moose Jaw Express contacted several Canadian municipalities to gauge how well Spectra has managed their buildings. Dawson Creek, British Columbia Spectra manages the EnCana Events Centre arena in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. Dawson Creek is a city of more than 12,000 people in northeast B.C. “Overall, they’ve created some pretty incredible opportunities for the City of Dawson Creek,” said CAO Duncan Redfearn. The management services company has brought many musical acts to the events centre over the years, such as KISS, Alan Jackson, Rascal Flats, Dean Brody, Florida Georgia Line and Toby Keith. Redfearn believes these performances were made possible due to Spectra’s experience in the industry. Spectra has also attracted Hockey Canada to Dawson Creek for a five-year contract, which could see the municipality host three to five hockey-related events a year. Dawson Creek and Spectra have had a successful partnership since 2006, said Redfearn. In creating the re-

U.S.-based Spectra Venue Management Services will look after operations of Mosaic Place beginning this fall. Spectra has received positive reviews from the municipalities in which it operates. File photo

lationship, city council’s goal was to create an events hub in northeast B.C. By providing quality events, Spectra has helped Dawson Creek be successful and grow into a desirable tourism events location. Both organizations signed a second 10-year agreement in 2016. Redfearn added he didn’t have concerns with how Spectra has managed the EnCana Events Centre. London, Ont. Spectra has managed the Budweiser Gardens arena since the building opened in 2003, said city manager Martin Hayward. Most people are pleased with the company’s services; very few have complained. The company has brought many events to the city — such as the Brier curling championship — that it otherwise would not have attracted. It supported the community when it hosted the Junos, while it has brought life to the downtown and made it an attractive hub. “I don’t think, as a municipality, we could do near as good a job as (Spectra is) doing for us,” Hayward re-

marked. “I think most municipalities aren’t geared for it anyway.” Spectra has lived up to the terms of the agreement, including returning money to the municipality, he said. Each year the company provides a report to city council about its activities. It also operates free of political interference since it is a private company. Neither Hayward nor London’s city council have any concerns with Spectra’s services. Even when the economy has declined, Hayward added, Spectra has kept London going “even in the dry times.” Abbotsford, B.C. Spectra has managed the City of Abbotsford’s arena since 2009. This building is the fourth-largest arena in B.C. and offers the largest indoor capacity for sports and entertainment events between Vancouver and Calgary, Alex Mitchell, public affairs and innovation officer, explained in an email. The centre is also an important part of the municipality’s recreation and entertainment infrastructure. “Spectra has been a strong manager and key partner in the operations of this facility since the centre’s opening (in 2009),” she said. Venues Now Magazine recently named The Abbotsford Centre as No. 1 in the Pacific Northwest for venues with a capacity between 5,001 and 10,000, Mitchell continued. The centre has hosted many exciting events over the years, including nine sold-out shows last year. This contributed to the regional entertainment landscape and provides significant contributions to the economy. According to the arena’s website, since opening, it has hosted many major concerts and events, such as Cirque du Soleil, Eric Church, Carrie Underwood, Motley Crue, Florida Georgia Line, Jerry Seinfeld, Sesame Street, and the World Famous Harlem Globetrotters.

Local author’s self-help book focuses on personal experience with mental illness Larissa Kurz

Struggling with mental illness is often arduous and seemingly lonely journey, but local author and motivational speaker Carla O’Reilly is using her personal struggle to reach out to others with her third self-help book. T.U.R.N. O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H began as a presentation O’Reilly put together about postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis, which she suffered from following the birth of her son.

“My goal is to help make the world a better place, and I want to start my hometown of Moose Jaw,” -Local author and motivational speaker Carla O’Reilly While designing her presentation, O’Reilly realized that the 15 wellness tools that make up T.U.R.N. O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H are universally applicable to mental illness and self-confidence and decided to share them with as many people as possible. “The tools are simple, they’re effec-

tive. . . and they’re simple things that [people] can do daily that are not [complicated],” said O’Reilly. “It’s easy to get tangled up, when there’s too many steps for something.” O’Reilly’s wellness tools include taking time each day to make a list of things to be grateful for, or to have some goals set that can be accomplished. She advocates for the power of dreaming, of positive thinking, and believing in one-

self. O’Reilly travels all over Canada giving her T.U.R.N. O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H presentation as a mental health advocate, and as a role model for those touched by the struggle of mental illness. “In my journey through my mental illness, I learned that you had to be a self-advocate in order to get better and you really had to drive the ship of your

healing,” said O’Reilly. “No one’s going to do it for you.” In the eight years that O’Reilly has been traveling with her T.U.R.N. O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H presentation, she’s seen and spoken with many people who’ve found hope in her struggles with postpartum psychosis and obsessive-compulsive disorder. “I think that when people see that you’ve gone through like a debilitating mental illness and you speak about it, it gives them hope,” said O’Reilly. “I think that connection is huge.” By publishing her book, O’Reilly hopes to reach a wider audience and make a difference in their lives. “My goal is to help make the world a better place, and I want to start my hometown of Moose Jaw,” said O’Reilly. The official book launch of T.U.R.N. O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H is on Aug. 15 in the Fifth Avenue Jewellers showroom, from 7 to 9 p.m. O’Reilly will have copies of the book available for purchase, as well as coffee and treats, and the event is open to the public to join in celebrating the release. Preorders for the new book are also available on O’Reilly’s website, www. thesmilingmask.com, as well as more information about her speaking and previous two books.

From The Kitchen E l e ct r i c f r y i n g p a n s e m e rg e to a id h o m e m a k e rs By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

In the mid 1950s, the electric frying pan was still something to be looked at with a skeptic’s eye, but manufacturers prevailed and soon, according to research, this new gadget was a welcome addition to many kitchens. The folks at Westinghouse touted the controlled heat of the electric fry pan as the “newest way to cook . . . assures accurately controlled heat, cooking food to perfection . . . without watching.” This week’s recipes come from a Westinghouse brochure that likely was included with the purchase of an electric frying pan. ••• Southern Fried Chicken 1 cup shortening 1 chicken fryer, cut in pieces 1/2 cup flour 1 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. pepper Preheat fry pan to 375 degrees F.

Growth of eSports means Moose Ja

Jason G. Antonio - Moo

Regina’s Queen City Exhibition recently demonstrated that hosting an eSports tournament is viable, which means Moose Jaw could also hold similar events and contribute to the growing gaming scene. The QCX teamed up with SKL Esports and The Matrix Gaming Centre to put on Fortnite and Super Smash Bros. tournaments during the July 31 to Aug. 4 fair. The winners of both tournaments each won $10,000. This is the largest prize ever offered for competitive gaming in the province. The video games industry is now bigger than the music and movie industries combined and has led to the rise of a major eSports scene, according to the League of Professional eSports. By the end of this year, the gaming industry is expected to generate $151 billion, compared to $43 billion for Hollywood and $20 billion for the music industry. Fortnite has become the biggest game on the planet since being released in 2017, with more than 250 million players worldwide taking part in the popular online-only multiplayer Battle Royale Mode. Meanwhile, more people watch eSports than the Super Bowl. Matrix Gaming Centre The Matrix has been in business in Regina for 17 years, and in that time, owner Mark Lloyd has never seen a game such as Fortnite dominate in terms of gameplay hours in the store. ESports has really taken off this year and become a

big thing, Lloyd said. Tournaments at every skill level are held everywhere. The Matrix has held tournaments for League of Legends (LOL) and Fortnite and offered $1,000 prizes. Moose Jaw Gamers’ Association The Moose Jaw Gamers’ Association (MJGA) would be the likely organizer of an eSports tournament here. The non-profit charity has hosted smaller gaming tournaments before, while it helped The Matrix promote the tournaments at the Queen City Ex. The Matrix has also sponsored the association’s Summer Gamer Expos (GAX). “It’s fantastic,” MJGA spokesman Kristian Sjoberg said about the fair’s eSports tournaments. “It is so huge. Gaming and the gaming industry and eSport industry is so huge around the world that it needs its time in the sun. “Thirty years of playing video games in dark, dank basements, we can now come out of those basements and play in the limelight and show off our skills,” he chuckled. Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds One possible place to hold an eSports tournament is at the Moose Jaw Exhibition fair grounds, said Sjoberg. MJGA members have spoken with exhibition officials in the past, who have said the Golden Nugget Centre might do well for an eSports competition. “The hardest part is getting volunteers to be able to run something like that … ,” he continued. “But by

no means is it impossible to do one in Moose Jaw.” Sjoberg added that the MJGA has reached 1,500 volunteer hours this year, which is “not bad for a small group of nerds.” The Golden Nugget Centre can hold 200 people, so it is an option, said exhibition manager George Fowler.

good facilities. I think we could certainly host them here.” The Matrix has approached the MJGA about hosting an eSports tournament in Moose Jaw. However, The Matrix would decide what games to play since it has the necessary number of computer systems, Sjoberg explained. There would be less chance of cheating if everyone used the same system, which would also level the playing field. Tournament costs It would be expensive to host 200 to 500 people, especially if The Matrix had to purchase individual game licences at $70 each, said Sjoberg. However, it could simply host a Fortnite tournament, which is free to play. Having a suitable venue is important since an eSports tournament is a significant event and would cost $25,000 to hold, said Lloyd. Venue officials would have to support the event to ensure it success. “We took more than 80 gaming systems (to the QCX),” said Lloyd. “It was a task to put together.” More than 400 competitors took part in the tournaments, which were held over the three days, he continued. The Matrix faced growing pains since this was the first time it had held such events at the exhibition. Most issues were beyond the business’ control. For example, the Evraz Place IT department refused to let The Matrix hook up to the internet ahead of time to stress test its system. Then Evraz’s email server went

so it wler.

However, the convention centre is much larger and would probably be the best location since those tournaments need room. “We’re interested in pretty much hosting any event,” he said, adding no one has contacted him yet about holding an eSports tournament. “We certainly have

down for 18 hours, which affected communications with tournament participants. Between July 31 and Aug. 1, a new patch for Fortnite dropped, which meant Matrix employees scrambled to apply them to the machines. Applying the patch meant they lost access to all the previous data, so staff had to determine who the top 50 tournament players were and then invite them to play in the finals. “It was a pretty ambitious tournament,” Lloyd added. “It was the biggest in the country. No one has done what we did. … I’m pretty sure there will be a next time. We’ll be better prepared.”

Dance Images by BJ celebrating 30 years of rhythm Larissa Kurz

Dance Images by BJ is entering into its 30th season this September, and owner Barb Jackman is ready for another great year at the studio. With pre-registration for previous dancers already underway, Dance Images is excited to see some new faces join the family when fall registration opens from Aug. 27-29. Jackman has been a part of the dance community in Moose Jaw for much longer than 30 years, having taken her training here and began teaching at Silver Stars Dance Club before investing in her own studio on South Hill. Since purchasing the building in 1989, Jackman and her loyal team have expanded and renovated to house three studio spaces in the building, all of which have a class running at all times. The studio offers full-season programs in ballet, tap, jazz, musical theatre, hip-hop, acro, and lyrical dance, with classes running from September until May. Dance Images also offers sessional programs, which run for about 10 weeks at a time, as well as adult classes in dance and yoga. Each member of the Dance Images staff was a previous student of Jackman’s, or at least has dance ties to Moose Jaw somehow, which is a heartwarming cycle for Jackman who is from Moose Jaw herself. “All of our staff is just as passionate as I am. We all kind of have the dance bug,� said Jackman. “When you love some-

Owner Barb Jackman stands with the framed article detailing the opening of Dance Images by BJ 30 years ago. thing, people kind of see that and they feel that, and it kind of makes it exciting to come every week.� The new generation of dancers are now coming from a Dance Images legacy, with parents who trained at the studio now bringing their kids to learn from Jackman as well. “It’s like a culture. We’re kind of a family,� said Jackman. “We’re so connected here; there’s so much human contact here.� Over the last thirty years, Jackman hasn’t lost her dedication to dance or the joy she gets from being a role model to her stu-

dents. “For me, it’s always just been that I just love dancing. I love teaching dancing and I love working with kids, and that’s really always been the driving force,� said Jackman. “It’s a huge responsibility and I’ve always taken that really seriously, the influence that I’ve had on kids.� Jackman sees dance as a positive way to teach skills that are useful in all aspects of life: dedication, hard work, determination, and how to handle disappointment. “We just try to nurture the good people in them, teach them those qualities for

them to be successful,� said Jackman. “They learn how to work hard and sometimes, you still don’t get what you want. . . There’s no instant gratification.� “We can offer [support to] a dancer who wants to become very competitive, maybe move on to have a professional career,� said Jackman. “Or if your child just wants to come and not be under too much pressure, we can do that too.� Dance Images has some exciting things planned to commemorate their milestone 30th season, yet to be announced. Registration for the upcoming season, which begins on Sept. 6, can be done at www.danceimagesbybj.com or by stopping at Dance Images by BJ when the office is open on Thursday afternoons. For more information, call (306) 631-0584.

The hallway down to the studios is lined with posters from the year-end showcases of the past 30 years, as well as posters signed by Dance Images alumni depicting their accomplishments.

Harvest operations start in some areas behind normal By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

is one to two weeks behind average. Last year when the August long weekend was over one per cent of crops had been combined with eight per cent of field peas and eight per cent of lentils in the bin. This year some farmers are concerned high heat days might have reduced yields as crops turned ripe too fast. Rain was sparse except for almost four inches in the Porcupine Plain area. Moose Jaw received two mm with seven mm at Mossbank and three mm at Limerick and Rockglen. Without rain moisture conditions are holding up well. Across the province crop land is rated one per cent excellent moisture, 60 per cent adequate, 36 per cent short and three per cent very short.

Under the provisions of The Alcohol and Gaming Regulations Act, 1997,

Notice is hereby given that Carpere Hotel Management Moose Jaw Ltd. has applied to the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authorithy (SLGA) for a Restaurant permit to sell alcohol in the premises known as Grant Hall Hotel at 401 Main St. N Moose Jaw SK S6H 0W5 Written objections to the granting of the permit may be filed with SLGA not more than two weeks from the date of publication of this notice. Every person filing a written objection with SLGA shall state their name, address and telephone number in printed form, as well as the grounds for the objection(s). Petitions must name a contact person, state grounds and be legible. Each signatory to the petition and the contact person must provide an address and telephone number. Frivolous, vexatious or competition-based objections within the beverage alcohol industry may not be considered and may be rejected by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Licensing Commission, who may refuse to hold a hearing.

In the Moose Jaw region crop land moisture is ranked two per cent excellent, 46 per cent adequate 52 per cent short and two per cent very short. In the drier southwest crop land is rated 32 per cent adequate, 60 per cent short and eight per cent very short. In Saskatchewan, pastureland is rated four per cent excellent 28 per cent adequate, 45 per cent short and 19 per cent very short. Ascocychta blight has damaged chickpea crops badly in Southern Saskatchewan.

Sask. Party’s negative policies driving Meili to work harder for residents Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Party’s policies are making life more difficult for people to survive every day, which has angered Ryan Meili but also driven him to work harder for Saskatchewanians. The Saskatchewan NDP leader has been visiting communities this summer to learn how residents’ quality of life has been affected by the provincial government’s decisions. This feedback will inform the party’s work in the legislature this fall and guide its platform during the 2020 provincial election. The NDP leader was in Moose Jaw on Aug. 2 and visited the food bank, the women’s transition house and a childcare program to learn about their successes and struggles. The Moose Jaw and District Food Bank has seen an increase in demand of 18 per cent during the last two years and has been attempting to meet that need, Meili said. It’s not just people on social assistance who use the food bank; it’s also families with two incomes who are barely making ends meet. “You feel for people in this situation,” he remarked.

“You learn that there is an incredible community spirit in Moose Jaw...” - Saskatchewan NDP leader Ryan Meili Meili pointed most people don’t want to use the food bank; they would rather provide for their family instead. While it’s positive the food bank is available, work needs to be done to ensure people don’t need to go there as their first option. Saskatchewan has the lowest minimum wage in the country, at $11.06 per hour, continued Meili. The provincial government has deeply cut into supports

for rental allowances and special dietary needs. The Sask. Party has also made it more difficult for people to get out of poverty. “When I see that, I feel a little sad, but I more feel angry … (and) a little fired up,” Meili said, pointing out poverty costs the province $4 billion a year. This is what drives him to work for a “better way” in the province. Meili was impressed with the work undertaken at the South Central Early Childhood Intervention Program (ECIP) in Moose Jaw. He thought the staff does incredible work to help kids with learning disabilities. However, he was struck by how underfunded the program is, how underpaid staff are, and how heavy the caseload is for the employees; one full-time employee and one part-time employee have to deal with 34 kids throughout the region. “You learn that there is an incredible community spirit in Moose Jaw — that’s reinforced … ,” Meili said. “The Sask. Party has been letting people down, really failing to make the most of the wealth of this province to

make sure that everybody has a chance to have their best life,” he continued. “And we’re seeing cities like Moose Jaw having to scramble and scrape and it’s still not enough for people to get

by.” There needs to be a renewed philosophy of investing in people, Meili remarked. Money needs to be spent where it will make the biggest difference. Instead, he is hearing almost everywhere in Saskatchewan that people are struggling with mental illness and addictions issues, while inequality is growing. Meili pointed to cuts in education and health care that have had significant effects on people’s lives. These have also contributed to the slowdown of the economy. He believes the Sask. Party has made these decisions due to its philosophy of “every man for himself,” instead of believing “we’re all in this together.” Meili also believes the Sask. Party has taken Moose Jaw for granted over the years, while residents have not benefited from having two Sask. Party MLAs. That is why he has visited the community several times in the last few months and why he will continue to make visits.

Lepine claims first men’s city golf championship

Runner-up in 2018 cards one of four 69s at Lynbrook to edge Bearchell by single stroke Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Nick Lepine came close to winning the Moose Jaw men’s city golf championship last year without actually claiming the title – a loss in a playoff to Trevor Benson saw the Lynbrook Golf Club standout landing in second place in the closest of fashions. And sure enough, the first-round leader in the 2019 championship found himself in another battle on Sunday afternoon at the Lynbrook as former provincial junior champion Leighton Bearchell gave chase. Lepine went into the second round with a one-shot lead after an opening round 71 at the Hillcrest Sports Centre Saturday, with Bearchell a single shot back. In the end, Lepine would be up to the task as he and Bearchell each carded two-under par 69s, giving Lepine his first men’s city championship. “It was a really good round; we were all playing well and it was good to get the win,” Lepine said shortly after accepting the championship trophy from The Sweet Spot’s Carlo Berardi. “The first two holes I eagle-birdied and put a bit of space between us, but then a few misses by me and good shots by him and he capitalized on some opportunities. Before you knew it, we were right neck-and-neck again.” Lepine wasted little time getting things going on Sunday, eagling the 462-yard par five first hole and following with a birdie on the second. Bearchell went birdie-par to start, giving Lepine a three-shot cushion right off the bat.

ited to Craig and Trevor (Benson), I can’t thank them enough for how much they’ve helped me,” Lepine said. “Then just coming out here to the Lynbrook, it’s nothing but good people out here, I golf with boys like Alf Paul, Brett Sentes, Shawn Muchowski, it makes it fun coming out all the time and when you’re enjoying yourself you’re going to get better and better playing the game. So I just love coming out here and it’s nice to get this win.” Chris Knopp followed an opening round 80 with a 70 on Sunday to finish with a 150 total and take first place in the first flight while Doug Maes (92-79-171) took top spot in the second flight. Moose Jaw city men’s golf champion Nick Lepine accepts the championship trophy from The Sweet Spot general manager Carlo Berardi. Bearchell wouldn’t go quietly, though, and with Lepine recording bogeys on six, seven and nine, he responded back-toback birdies on the final two holes of the front nine to see both players record 35s and right back at square one. “It makes you think a lot more, I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing,” Lepine said of the close battle. “It doesn’t make you focus on the shot so much, kind of takes your mind away from it, but it all worked out.” Things became very interesting when Bearchell birdied the 11th to Lepine’s par, tying things up with seven holes to play. Two holes later, Lepine was once again up by a pair after taking a birdie on the 13th

to Bearchell’s bogey. A birdie on 17 saw Bearchell once again close to within one, setting up a tense final hole that saw both players with long putts after dropping their approach shots 20 feet out on the left side of the green. Both two-putted to card identical 69s and give Lepine the title. Defending champion Trevor Benson finished four shots back at 75-69-144 to take third place, while Shawn Loney had the fourth 69 of the day to finish 76-69-145. The win marked the latest golf milestone for Lepine this season, as earlier this summer he shot a 63 to set a new course record at the Lynbrook. “I know when I hit the record there, I cred-

Warriors’ Hunt, Team Canada fall to Russia in Hlinka Gretzky Cup gold medal game Russia takes 3-2 win in championship final at under-18 world hockey championship Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Alexandr Pashin scored the eventual game-winning goal 8:38 into the third period to give Russia a 3-2 victory over Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Daemon Hunt and Team Canada in the final of the Hlinka Gretzky Cup on Saturday, Aug. 10. The goal was Pashin’s second of the game after he gave Russia a 1-0 lead with the lone goal of the first period 3:45 into the contest. Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Daemon Hunt in Quinton Byfield of the action against Russia during the Hlinka Gretzky Cup OHL’s Sudbury Wolves got gold medal game. Canada on the board with a power play marker 3:03 into the second, but the 1-1 tie would barely last five minutes before Vasili Ponomaryov gave Russia back the lead at the 8:09 mark. Pashin then added his game winner midway through the final frame before Jean-Luc Foudy of the Windsor Spitfires pulled Canada within one with 4:59 to play. Despite the final score, Canada dominated play, outshooting Russia 37-13 in the contest, including 10-3 in the second period and 13-3 in the third. Russia’s Yaroslav Askarov was more than up to the task, though, with his 35 save performance including a handful of highlight reel stops in the two minutes as Canada pressed for the tying goal with their net empty. Dylan Garand of the Kamloops Blazers turned aside 19 shots in the Team Canada goal. Canada was undefeated heading into the final, having defeated Finland 6-0, Switzerland 8-0 and Czech Republic 7-1 in the round robin before edging Sweden 3-2 in the semifinal. Hunt saw action in each of Canada’s five games at the tournament in Piestany, Slovakia but was held off the scoresheet offensively and didn’t take a penalty. Canada has now won 26 medals in the 29-year history of the tournament, with 22 gold, three silver and one bronze. Earlier on Aug. 10, Team Sweden and Moose Jaw Warriors prospect Jesper Wallstedt won bronze with a 5-1 win over Finland.

Miller Express hand out annual awards

Borst named MVP after stellar Western Canadian Baseball League season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Miller Express held their annual awards night last Tuesday, honouring the top players and performers from the past Western Canadian Major Baseball League season. And when it came time to announce the team’s Most Valuable Player, there was little surprise. First-year Express outfielder/pitcher Michael Borst was a standout from the first week of the season as he quickly established himself as one of the top hitters in the league. A senior from Minot State via McHenry, Ill., Borst would lead the Express in hitting with a .382 average, fourth in the WCBL, along with a .574 slugging percentage and 1.018 on-base-plus-slugging average. He added six home runs, eight doubles and two triples to his offensive totals, capping the campaign with 32 runs batted in. That wasn’t the extent of Borst’s contributions, as the 6-foot-3, 225-pound right hander quickly evolved into one of the team’s top pitchers despite seeing no mound action during the past season at Minot State. He finished the WCBL season with a 3-1 record in nine starts – including a 10-inning, three-hit no decision against Melville on June 23 – while putting together a 4.31 earned run average and 1.12 walks and hits per inning pitched. Winning the Silver Slugger award as the Express’ top hitter was Borst’s Mi-

The Moose Jaw Miller Express held their awards night recently, with Geordie McDougall (Silver Slugger), Matt Jackson (Pitcher of the Year), Michael Ross (Pitcher of the Year), Markus Melendez (Coach’s Award) and Eric Marriott (Gold Glove) all honoured. Missing is Most Valuable Player Michael Borst. not State teammate Geordie McDougall, who capped the campaign with a .279 average, .474 slugging and .839 OPS. The second-year senior third baseman also showed an impressive boost in power in his senior season, cracking eight home runs and 33 RBI to lead the team in both categories. The Pitcher of the Year award was shared by Michael Ross and Matt Jackson, two of the Express’ most effective starters throughout the season.

Ross recorded a 6-3 record through six starts, putting together a 4.47 ERA and 1.25 WHIP while recording 60 strikeouts in the process. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound sophomore from Tiffin University included a complete game victory over Brooks on July 11, where he racked up 10 Ks. Jackson, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound sophomore righthander from Emporia State College, was hit with the no-decision bug much of the season, finishing with a 2-1 record despite allowing more than three runs only

once though his seven starts, with one of his top performances coming against the Regina Red Sox on July 24 when he gave up only one run through eight innings. His overall numbers for the season were especially impressive as he finished with a 2.86 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, recording 37 strikeouts in the process. Claiming the Gold Glove award was centrefielder Eric Marriott, one of six Express players hailing from Mitchell College. The 6-foot-0, 175-pound senior speedster saw action in 47 games in the outfield, recording 89 put-outs and a pair of assists with only one error, good enough a stellar .989 save percentage Winning the Coach’s Award was catcher Markus Melendez. Express head coach Rich Sorenson lauded the 5-foot-10, 185-pound backstop’s ability to see the game and connection with his pitchers and the team’s coaching staff. The Mitchell College senior hit .223 for the season with four doubles and 14 RBI. The Most Inspirational Award was a lock before it was even announced, even if it was rather unusual: coach Rich Sorenson. The first-year bench boss battled appendicitis midway through the season, working games despite feeling unwell before finally needing surgery. He spent a week in hospital recovering from a system-wide infection before returning to the team for the stretch drive.

Miller Express fall in three games with Red Sox Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Miller Express fell just short in their quest for an upset against the Regina Red Sox in their Western Canadian Baseball League first round series. The Red Sox picked up a 6-2 victory in Game 3 of the best-of-three Eastern Division semifinal on Saturday, Aug. 10, taking a two-games-to-one victory. Moose Jaw picked up a 9-6 win on Aug. 9 at Ross Wells Park one day after dropping a 10-2 decision in their playoff opener. Regina 6, Express 2 The Red Sox cranked out five hits in the eighth inning and took advantage of a pair of Express errors to score five runs off standout relievers Michael Ross, Jaden Hoffman and Jack Gamba on their way to closing out the series at Currie Field in Regina. The Express trailed 1-0 through four innings, but Eric Marriott singled home Blake Gallagher in the fifth to tie the game 1-1. The local squad then took their lead in the seventh when Gallagher hit a one-out single, stole second and scored on a base hit by Markus Melendez. That set the stage for the Red Sox comeback, as they sent 10 batters to the plate in their half of the eighth, scoring their five runs on four hits and a pair of errors to take a

commanding lead. Marriott knocked home Tucker Zdunich in the top of the ninth as the Express attempted a miracle two-out comeback, but would get no closer. Michael Borst gave the Express their third straight solid start in the playoffs, going six innings and giving up one run while striking out four and scattering six hits. Express 9, Regina 6 Express starter Jeff Nicolosi went six innings, scattering seven hits and allowing only a pair of runs as the Express pounded out a 9-6 win to stay alive in the series. The way things looked in the early going, it appeared the Express might be in for a long night – Nicolosi surrendered singles to the first four Regina hitters, leading to the game’s first run and loaded bases with none out. But one double play later and things turned around in a hurry. “It was just trying to find it early, I was missing with my 0-2 stuff early in the game and they were making me pay for it, so I just tried to grind through it,” Nicolosi said. “It was just mindset-wise, just keep attacking and don’t let up a bit, because as soon as you let up for one second, that’s when they make you pay. So I just kept trying to get after it… and once you get a little run support the nerves ease up a little, you feel a little more confident and you can just go attack and pitch your game. It was a good team win.” The Express did most of their damage in the fourth inning, sending nine batters to the plate and scoring five

Borst finished the game 2-for-3 with two runs scored and a pair of RBI, Marriott was 2-for-5 with a pair of runs and Lightley 3-for-5 with three runs scored. Geordie McDougall had a pair of hits and two RBI, Campbell knocked in one while recording a pair of hits. Regina 10, Express 2 The Express trailed 5-0 through four innings and were unable to find the key hit when they needed it as they dropped the series opener in Regina. They had Michael Batten to thank for their offensive woes, as the WCBL triple crown winner scattered seven hits over seven innings of work, allowing only two runs and striking out 11 to take the victory. Matt Jackson should have been just as effective for the Express – he also gave up seven hits and walked three – but errors and the long ball proved to be his undoing: Willie Estrada belted a solo home run in the seventh, Ben Komonosky a run-scoring triple in the fifth and Jackson ended up surrendering only four earned runs after errors extended innings. The Express scored both their runs in the fifth inning as Melendez doubled home Gallagher and Dougie DelaCruz. Gallagher finished the night 3-for-4 with a run scored, Melendez and Andres Garza were both 2-for-4.

All-Stars back home after solid showing at Little League Canadian Championship

Local squad picked up prestigious Joe Shea Award as tournament’s most sportsmanlike team Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw All-Stars might not have put together the kind of record they wanted to at the Little League Canadian Championship the last two weeks, but there’s no question their appearance at the tournament was still a wild success. When you gain that kind of experience while throwing down a serious challenge to every opponent you meet and then win the tournament’s most sportsmanlike award in the process, well, that’s just some good baseball right there. “It’s been a long haul, but it’s been very rewarding,” said All-Stars coach Tony Dreger, “I told the boys at the very end of the tournament ‘do not hang your heads, we battled every single day’ we put a scare into every single team out there’; When I was there in Vancouver a few years ago, we got mercied a few times, where we didn’t get mercied in any games this time. So they should be very happy with what they achieved.” The All-Stars posted a 1-5 record through the tournament, with their lone win an 8-3 victory over Ontario representative Ottawa West. And while they were on the wrong side of a handful of lopsided contests, every game saw the All-Stars put together a handful of solid offensive innings, creating more than a few tense moments for their opposition. “At the end of the day, these kids can take this and grow with this, build on it in the future, even in the next couple weeks as they look back… this is what we did, we worked all year long to get to that level and that spot and we did it,” Dreger said. “So that’s very, very exciting.” The All-Stars did pick up one of the tournament’s highest honours – the Joe Shea Award, which is presented annually to the most sportsmanlike team at the event. Interestingly enough, the All-Stars also picked up the honour the last time they were at Little League Canadians back in 2016. “When I talked to the tournament coordi-

nator, he said he had no one else in mind, that we represented ourselves so well that it made it an easy pick for him,” Dreger said. “I’m super proud of the boys for being respectful and representing Moose Jaw Little League, representing Moose Jaw and representing the Prairies so well. I can’t say enough about how the boys handled themselves and it’s fantastic to win such a prestigious award.” Then there was the mound visit during the game against Alberta that propelled Dreger and pitcher Javin Boynton into Little League lore – with a conversation about leftovers back at their dorm being picked up by the main Little League Twitter account and spread throughout the internet. “You always try to make sure that if the kids are getting down on themselves, we’re there to have fun and play baseball,” Dreger said after a hearty laugh at the memory. “We’re there to compete but we have to have fun too and Javin was struggling, so it was just a chance to get his head off of things and remind him we were there to have a good time, too… It was a pretty good bonus and to think it went to 33,000 people, holy smokes. You can see how powerful social media is after that.” The All-Stars will see 11 of their 12 players moving up an age class next season, meaning there will be a wholesale restart in their quest to return to the championship in 2020. That’s something Dreger wouldn’t be surprised to see. “I think the kids who were on this team and are moving on are going to be very successful in their baseball careers wherever else they go,” he said. “And there are some strong 11-year-olds who didn’t make this team this year who will move up to Major AAA next year that will have a good opportunity to represent at Canadians again. So I think baseball in Moose Jaw is very strong right now and I’m excited to see where it’s going to take us.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Cat’s twitching tail means don’t get too close It has come to my attention that I deserved every scratch, bite and snarl inflicted on me over the years by the felines in my life. I thought their dislike of me was related directly to their housing provided — outdoors or in the unheated gaJoyce Walter rage. It wasn’t my decision For Moose Jaw Express but the female parent had a ronjoy@sasktel.net rule that dogs, cats and other assorted wildlife belonged anywhere but in the house. And so cats of my youth were lovingly cared for outside, fed milk and other stuff that probably messed up their digestive systems and they were required to provide their own meat in the form of mice, but certainly not any of the birds that lived in our yard. It wasn’t my fault my mother would chase them with a broom if she suspected any feline interest in the robins or canaries or blue birds that made our yard their home. Nor was it my fault when they nosed around the outside drain to the cistern and fell in, to drown in the water that we used for washing floors and other non-edible activities. My dad got tired of fishing expired cats out of their wet burial ground and listening to me cry in despair over another dead pet. Thus his decree: no more cats. So the years went by until I became an aunt to a cat that lived in another house. As a kitten, Sally was a fun-loving and cuddly bundle of fur. We photographed her extensively and ignored her tiny but strong claws that found purchase on our sweaters and pant legs. She soon grew out of her kittenish cuteness and only occasionally allowed any pats of affection from anyone other than her owner — and then only when she

felt like accepting such gestures. I got the message to leave her alone after two or three slaps from her paws, with claws extended. And a smack on the noggin from her perch atop the fridge. But now I know it was all my fault — at least that’s what a report in Live Science implies. The report, The Best Way to Pet Your Cat, explains that cats are basically still wild animals, the cousins of the African wildcat who are long-time hunters and pest eliminators. As such even thousands of years later, domesticated cats may still be solitary creatures, only tolerating human interaction because the two-legged creatures provide food and shelter. I did neither for Sally. Instead I ignored it when her tail swished, thrashed and thumped; I ignored it when her ears flattened to the sides of her head; her short bursts of grooming suggested to me she was a tidy cat but instead that signalled she didn’t want to be touched and was licking away a human scent. All of those signs were indications that she didn’t want to socialize with humans who only showed up occasionally and then talked baby talk to her: “Nice kitty. Aren’t you a nice kitty!� No wonder she didn’t purr but glared when her space was invaded through misunderstanding of feline language. The Live Science research cautions humans to let the felines set the tone for safe petting and patting. In future, cats will not have to worry about my interaction with them, except for that stray white cat that does its business in the flower bed and has been chased away on a regular basis. It is a slow learner.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith Insurance Policies There has been some awful summer weather popping up around southern Saskatchewan this summer. I sometimes question if the weather is worse than when I was a kid but then I remind myself of the wicked weather that ripped through our countryside years back; hailstorms, windstorms, drought, tornadoes, and flooding. I recall a huge downpour when my dad was playing at a men’s fastball tournament in Lafleche one year. When we popped over the last hill on our way home, we could see pockets of water all over our fields. I also remember when some friends had a tornado rip through their yard, bringing much devastation to their yard and buildings. Thankfully, all were safe. One stormy night was especially memorable when I got saved at my mother’s knee... at the tender age of four... as I asked my mom what would happen to me if I died in the storm. She explained that if I was born again and confessed Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I would live eternally with Him in heaven but if I chose not to, I would be alone for eternity in hell. Of course, from a child’s perspective, that was an easy choice and I took the simple step of faith to take Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Forty-three years later, I’ve never regretted making that decision. That night, hail pounded our farm but the angels were rejoicing and I had a deep sense of peace knowing I would have Jesus by my side for the rest of my life. In the first years of our marriage, Hubby and I didn’t have insurance on anything. Mostly, it was because we couldn’t afford it. I realize there are two sides of that argument, especially if something were to happen that would’ve caused loss of a home or a life but we could barely buy milk let alone insurance. Thankfully, we’ve got a good package that covers our home and belongings, as well as life and accident insurance. The only thing to date that we’ve had to use insurance for was for wildlife damage on our vehicles; however, it is reassuring to know that we are covered for any damages should the need arise. It is easy to cover the bases in our physical world but how about the unseen parts of our world? How do we protect our mental and spiritual health with some type of insurance policy to bring the reassurance we need to know we are covered in those aspects? I already touched on the spiritual side, although that is only the first step. But before we carry on, be sure you’ve made that first step because any subsequent steps won’t count if you haven’t taken the first one. Not making a decision is in fact, still a decision. God gives us a will and a choice. We must choose who we will serve. Following the step of faith, acknowledging that we have sinned and fallen short, we can move forward in obedience to fulfill the destiny He’s created for us. That is a lifelong journey of adventure and I hope you’re experiencing it to the fullest! Next week, I’d like to meet back here to discuss the next step in covering the bases in other parts of your life, besides your life and possessions. I will share with you one sure-fire way to simplify life and take the guesswork out of making important life decisions. “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.� Deuteronomy 31:8 The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

Allen- Richard Patrick (Dick) Mar 14 1936 – Aug 3 2019 It is with great sadness that the family of Dick Allen announce his passing August 3 2019. DR. DAVID AMIES After a beautiful day with friends at “the Lake,” David passed suddenly and peacefully on July 29, 2019. At 89 he was loving life, busy with projects, and planning his next visits with children and grandchildren, as well as a ninetieth birthday celebration next spring in Savannah with his sister Gillian. David enjoyed his wood-projects, photography, K-40, cars, single malt, sailing, inventing curious solutions to handyman problems, puttering at the Lake, walking with the Grumpy Old Men...and social activities with friends and family. He was truly in his glory being with his grandkids. Dave was privileged to have fine friends and colleagues in his long history, and he valued the love and friendship of his many relatives among the Knipfels and Hudsons of Saskatchewan, the Browns of Georgia, and the Davisons of Ontario. He was legendary in our family, and somehow it seemed that he would always be here. David was born in Malaysia, raised in England, and trained as a doctor in South Africa. He had fascinating tales of growing up through wartime England, moving to Johannesburg at age 16, and finally landing in Canada where he fell in love with and married Denise. He specialized in Internal Medicine in Edmonton, started a family of four children, and made his permanent home in Moose Jaw, where he felt he could make a difference to health care in his community. David gave much of himself as a physician for over 55 years and was always supported by his loving wife. Those who knew him will remember his patience, calm and caring spirit, and relentless appetite for knowledge. He was energetic to the end, sometimes cheeky, and ever the gentleman. He will be sorely missed and remembered forever. No funeral is being held. A Celebration of Life for family and friends will follow in September. Donations in his memory can be made to either Hunger in Moose Jaw, 269 Stadacona St W, Moose Jaw, SK, S6H 1Z4 or Moose Jaw Transition House, Box 1866 Moose Jaw, SK, S6H 7N6. In loving memory of David, a memorial tree planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website www.wjjonesandson. com or www.parkviewfuneralchapel.ca (Obituaries). Dayna Chamberlain, Funeral Director.

Born in Davidson, SK and the youngest of three children born to Stan and Theresa Allen (Webber), Dick’s family moved to Regina from their Davidson-area farm when he was in grade school, then later to Moose Jaw where Dick finished high school, graduating from Peacock Technical Institute. After a short stint working with the railway, Dick began what would become a 35 year career with Sask-Tel. Dick enjoyed the social aspects of his job as much as the technical work; he made life-long connections with people across the city and throughout the province. Dick was also very proud of the several years he spent working as a part time soldier with the Saskatchewan Dragoons. Following his time with the Dragoons he remained connected with the military through many years as a member of the Royal Canadian Legion.

RICHARD DAVID OAK It is with great sadness that the family of Richard David Oak announces his passing on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at the age of 64yrs. He passed peacefully with family at his side. He is predeceased by his father Johnny “Red” Oak and his grandmother Olga Phillips. Rick is survived by his mother Ann Marie Oak, his brothers John Oak and Ken Oak (Elaine Oak), his sisters Lisa Oak (Allan McDonald) and Diane Oak, 6 well loved nieces and nephews and many dear friends. There will be a family grave side service followed by an open Celebration of life on Sept 7, 7:00 at the MooseJaw Wildlife Centre, 1396 3rd Ave NE. Flowers gratefully declined but your presence is welcomed. Full obituary found at myalternatives.ca

Ryan Chute Sept. 13, 1980 - Aug. 17, 2009

It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home.

Dick married Moira Marlene Geddes in 1958 and together they raised three children: Pat, Jim and Donna. As a passionate outdoorsman, Dick spent many years enjoying hunting and fishing in Saskatchewan and beyond. He shared his love of the outdoors with his family; in the early years summer holidays were spent camping and later at the family cottage. After retirement Dick and Moira took the opportunity to explore destinations beyond the confines of Saskatchewan including Bali, Mexico, Hawaii, Barbados and Arizona. Dick was innovative and a “jack-of-all-trades”; there were few projects he thought to be too big to tackle. Money may have factored into some decisions but Dick often chose to fabricate items rather than purchasing new, tackling many challenging projects including a boat, canoe, boatlift and a tent trailer. He was exceptionally proud to work with his entire family in the construction of the cabin of his dreams at Buffalo Pound Lake. The cabin remains a legacy of his skill, vision and dedication to his family. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Moira, children Pat Mudry & Dave Soroka, Jim & Liz Allen, Donna Allen & Deb Crosby; grandchildren Les & Jessica Chelle, RJ & Teneille Allen, Mike Allen & Rayna Kononiuk, Jake Mudry & Ardessa Nagy, Tyler Mudry, Matt Mudry & Emily Leibel; great granddaughter Schylar Allen, and countless friends and extended family. Dick had a special relationship with all of his grandchildren, spending countless hours digging in the garden, hiking in the hills, playing at whatever adventure their creative minds would take them.
