Col. Ron Walker takes over as commanding officer of 15 Wing Change of Command Ceremony sees Walker take over from former 15 Wing commander Col. Denis O’Reilly Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
Take a paycation. Don’t pay for 3 months. Ask about our payment plans.
Col. Ron Walker is officially the new commander of 15 Wing Moose Jaw. Walker, 51, became the 27th commander of the local Canadian Forces base on Friday afternoon during the official Change of Command ceremony, taking over from outgoing commander Col. Denis O’Reilly. It was under windy conditions and warm and cloudy skies that Walker joined O’Reilly and Brig.-Gen. Mario Leblanc – commander of 2 Canadian Air Division – for the official hand-over, which included a wide variety of local dignitaries along with Lt. Gov. Russ Mirasty taking part in one of his first major events since being named to the position a little over a month ago. “I left in 1996 after I was a flying instructor here and I haven’t been back very often since, but one of my daughters was born here in 1994 and for us it’s like a home away from home almost,” Walker said during a post-ceremony reception. “To come back here and be in charge of the Wing and flying training and nurturing these new students is great and it’s an opportunity I’m really looking forward to.” Born in Windsor, N.S. in 1958, Walker joined the military in 1989 and received his pilot wings in 1993, after which he was posted to 2 Canadian Forces Flying Training School at CFB Moose Jaw, where he was an instructor on the CT-114 Tutor jet. A long and distinguished career followed, including his most recent posting at 2 Canadian Air Division as the director of air force training. That makes him uniquely qualified for the job of 15 Wing commander in the assessment of Brig.-Gen. Leblanc. “He’s very familiar with all the aspects and many of the challenges he’ll face here,” Leblanc said. “There are many ideas, and I’m sure over the next few weeks he’ll

Ron Walker looks on. look at which ones he can chew on and work from there… Every time you take command, it’s a great day and kind of an achievement in a military career. It’s very gratifying, and he’s coming in now with two or three years ahead of him; that time will fly by pretty quickly so if he has big ideas he has to start on them right away. “But he’s coming in energized and that’s why we change people every two or three years. We need to have fresh ideas and have people energized to be able to deal with different aspect of command.” On that note, the day was also bittersweet as the Wing said farewell to O’Reilly, a Moose Jaw native and commander of 15 Wing since 2016. In addition to leading his final march-past during the ceremony, O’Reilly was also presented with a memorial collage by CWO Marlene Shillingford and was named an honorary member of the Snowbirds for life by Snowbirds commander Mike French. O’Reilly even concluded the event by join-
ing his wife of 22 years and their seven children in a humorous mock Snowbirds fly-past using the wooden models seen in local parades in recent years. “I’ve worked with Col O’Reilly for the last year and he’s very devoted to the mission and everything that was said on parade is very accurate, both his and his family are very involved in the community and have been extremely important to the growth and development of 15 Wing in their time here.” Walker looks forward to officially beginning his new role and the work ahead. “I think the most exciting thing for me is change,” he said. “We have a lot of things coming forward; we’re really good at what we do here in applying change; it’s going to be nice to see the future and what that program will become… we’ll be looking at any positive changes that can be made, where we can increase our flying here and increase our productivity.”

Newcomer Centre looking ahead for seasonal donations Larissa Kurz
Near the end of July, the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council reached out to the community through Facebook for donations of furniture, for a newly settled family, and Moose Jaw came through immediately. Tyler Bastedo, community connections coordinator at the MJMC, said this is a pretty normal response from Moose Jaw when special donation requests come around. “We usually get a pretty good response from the community when we ask for assistance, it’s fantastic,” said Bastedo. “The community usually comes together pretty good for our new arrivals.” Larger items — like furniture or bicycles, for example — aren’t something that the MJMC can store in their donations space, which means they only request those kinds of donations for families that have come to them with an immediate need. The MJMC takes donations of smaller items more regularly, such as clothes,
The Newcomer Centre stores all of its donations at it’s location on Main St., which means they don’t have enough room to keep large items all of the time. household items, or personal hygiene items — things that someone might need immediately upon arriving in the community. Bastedo said there’s not usually a shortage of anything, thanks to the ongoing
generosity of the community. Actually, he said it’s best to call the Newcomer Welcome Centre ahead of dropping things off, in case they’re overstocked and your donation could be better appreciated by another organization.
A Salute to Our Good Neighbour, 15 Wing
Jaw. Military personnel volunteered in our city, attended our churches and supported our businesses. The military base has provided employment for many civilians. Having 15 Wing as our neighbor is part of the flavour and fabric of Moose Jaw. We are boastfully proud to say that we are home to the iconic Snowbirds. There are several very concrete examples of a strong connection with 15 Wing. The Honourary Colonel appointed for 15 Wing often has Moose Jaw roots. Moose Jaw is proud to claim that newly-appointed Honourary Colonel, Lisa Franks, grew up here in our community. It was an honour to be invited to the 15 Wing Military Family Resource Centre Annual General Meeting. I am impressed with the great work they do in supporting military families and helping those families become part of our community. 15 Wing Fellowship does phenomenal work to foster a positive relationship with 15 Wing personnel. It was organized in 2010 through the efforts of Honourary Colonel (retired) Doug Marr to strengthen relationships between the military community at 15 Wing and the civilian community of the Moose Jaw area. The dedicated board members and volunteers have organized exceptional events that have indeed strengthened our connections and supported important causes.

The 15 Wing Change of Command Ceremony this past Friday was a welcome to the incoming Wing Commander, Colonel Ron Walker. It was also a celebration of all that outgoing Wing Commander, Colonel Denis O’Reilly, has done with an element of sadness to see him leave. Colonel O’Reilly has said that growing up in Moose Jaw and watching the Snowbirds fly overhead influenced his decision to join the Air Force. It was significant to have one of our own at the helm of 15 Wing; however, there has always been a commitment on the part of the Air Force and the people of Moose Jaw to foster a positive connection and appreciation for the relationship. The success of the 2019 Saskatchewan Air show is a prime example. From the very start of air training at the beginning of World War II, the presence of the military and its memB:4.85” bers has had a positive and respectful impact T:4.85” on Moose S:4.35”

The MJMC usually settles several families each year, after being given around a month prior to their arrival to make the necessary arrangements. For the most part, the Newcomer Welcome Centre has what’s needed to get families settled. Right now, they’re looking forward to everyone’s favourite season: winter. Warm, winter clothing is something the MJMC goes through pretty steadily each year, as many newcomers aren’t prepared for the extreme Canadian cold when they arrive. So although it’s still August, the Newcomer Centre is already welcoming donations of winter clothing with open arms in preparation for the weather to come. Donations can be dropped off at the Newcomer Welcome Centre anytime during business hours, Monday to Friday, and Bastedo encourages people to call them at 1 (306) 692-6892 if they have questions about what to donate.
The Province of Saskatchewan is also committed to supporting our serving members and veterans. Saskatchewan Provincial Parks work with the Military Families Camping Program. Two completely-equipped cabin trailers at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park are available for military families to reserve and enjoy much-needed family time; hunting and fishing licenses are free for veterans; and in 2019-20, the Government of Saskatchewan will begin providing $100,000 for a new program to support the important work of veteran service clubs across the province. The province appoints a Military Liaison to work with aspects of support for military personnel and with programs like Seamless Canada, which addresses transition issues. Thank you to Colonel Denis O’Reilly for his exemplary service to 15 Wing and the community of Moose Jaw. I extend a warm Moose Jaw welcome to Colonel Ron Walker. Thank you to all current and veteran military members for your service to Canada and our community. I hope you will always know the support of, the admiration of, and a warm connection to the people of Moose Jaw.

BisonFest a celebration of Metis, First Nations history in Tatawaw Park

Hundreds take part in event featuring educational displays and demonstrations Saturday Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
At first glance, it seems like the atl atl device would have been a difficult weapon to use when attempting to take down a bison back when First Nations peoples regularly hunted the massive animals on the plains of Saskatchewan. It was a large, heavy spear thrown using a wooden handle for added leverage; the weapon is as ancient as it is simple, having been used by indigenous people throughout the Americas long before western civilization even existed. Patrons of BisonFest on Saturday in Tatawaw Park had a chance to try out the ranged device under the tutelage of expert Gary Vieser, testing their skills against a life-size bison target. It only took a couple of throws for some to find out just how easy the weapon was to use – the atl atl might be as old as civilization, but there’s no question of its lethality and effectiveness. The station was one of several stops in the park for the inaugural event, offering those who took in the festival a chance to learn about Metis and First Nations history and their connection with the massive herbivores throughout history. “So it’s an educational day and we’re just trying to continue the rich history of the Metis and First Nations in the area,” said
In addition to learning about bison, a tent-raising demonstration was also part of the afternoon’s activities. Laverne Trudel, president of the Southern Plains Métis Local 160. “We have a lot of artifacts set up and there are girls in the booth teaching it, and as you’re walking around the park here you can read and learn a lot about the bison. It all ties into the new park and gives us a chance to help people learn more about the area and what it was like back in the day.” One of the demonstrations was the construction of a teepee, something Trudel has fielded many a question about over the years. “So many people at Sidewalk Days and
Canada Day in Crescent Park asked me ‘how do you get the rope up there’ and I must of explained it a thousand times in those four days,” Trudel said with a laugh, pointing to a rope tying the top of the teepee’s support structure together. “So we thought we’d set up our big teepee, then we borrowed the smaller teepee from the school board and gave a demonstration how these get set up without someone shimmying up the poles to tie things up.”

people, so we really focus on Metis people who might not have those resources,” Gagne explained. “We have quite a few businesses we help out in Moose Jaw, and we’re not a onestop shop. Someone might come to us for something like opening a clothing store and when they look to expand they’ll come to us for that too… it’s an awesome job to have, helping Metis people start their own business.” The Fund is serious business – a total of 56 projects creating 418 jobs and drawing $20.1 million in assistance in 2018 alone. In total, the project has created $114,150,000 in socioeconomic benefits through its 10 years of existence. The event also featured a First Nations grass dancer, while Harold St. Pierre offered a jigging demonstration and lessons to close out the day. Trudel estimated around 300 people took part in the event throughout Saturday and hopes to see BisonFest expand in the future. “Maybe even make it a two-day event and partner with some sponsors and make it a big weekend BisonFest,” he said. “But this is a good start, you always have to start small and we’ll see what we can bring in the future.

At a political gathering this weekend where the Premier of Saskatchewan was in attendance, the Mayor of Moose Jaw had an opportunity to speak the blessing over the meal but included a poke at media for speaking/writing negatively about the powers that be and what they do… Not sure where his comments were directed, but have sort of an inkling that he himself might Joan Ritchie rather have fluffy niceties diEDITOR rected at himself and city hall rather than the hard and fast questions people are posing currently putting city hall to task. “The wise man doesn’t give the right answers, he poses the right questions.” -Claude Levi-Strauss Unfortunately, when you are the ‘boss of the walk’, you need to take the bad with the good and maybe change it. In elected positions, isn’t it presumed that elected officials are accountable and answerable to the people under their jurisdiction? The city’s dealings are becoming more of an issue around town and there seems to be a lot of concern as to how come now things are becoming more on the ‘hush-hush’ as the usually expected public forums of city council meetings are becoming more meetings ‘in-camera’ under the ‘cone of silence’, shutting out the community and media who have a right to know what’s going on, as we are all stakeholders in this community. Has the ‘iron curtain’ fallen here in Moose Jaw? The definition states “an impenetrable barrier to communication or information especially as imposed by rigid censorship and secrecy; used by Winston Churchill in 1946 to describe the demarcation between democratic and communist countries.” Seems like we are experiencing some censorship here in Moose Jaw. I seriously believe we as a community are headed in the wrong direction. At the onset of the mayor’s tenure, he voiced a mandate that there should be more communication between City Hall and the people of Moose Jaw but it is apparent that he’s probably not enjoying the conversation.. We seem to be headed in the opposite direction as the conversation seems pretty one-sided now… Maybe ‘the powers that be’ don’t want to hear or acknowledge the negative feedback, but without it, this would be a dictatorship. As citizens, it is our right to voice our concerns and here’s hoping that others will make their voices known.

The Moose Jaw Food Bank has put out a request for some specific donations, namely some items that are a staple on the Food Bank’s shelves. In their Facebook post, they asked for the community to consider donating Kraft Dinner, Chunky soup, boxed cereal, and mushroom soup. Running out of items such as these is fairly uncommon for the Food Bank, as staple items like Kraft Dinner and canned soups are usually supplied quite well on their shelves during this time of year. Operations manager Terri Smith says the Food Bank has seen a 20 per cent increase in clients using their services in the last two years and volunteers are putting together around 30 to 40 Terri and Kendra at the Food Bank are in need of some supplies to conextra food hampers each month. tinue filling the monthly food hampers, as you can see the Kraft Dinner “We’ve had an increase of clients shelf behind them is looking empty. coming in, and we’re actually helping more clients a little bit more often,” said Smith. “Normally we can gauge how much we’re going to use based on the year before but this year we can’t seem to keep up.” Because of this influx, the Food Bank is seeing items disappear more quickly. Even after rationing the number of items going into the hampers, Smith is so low on Kraft Dinner that it likely won’t last more than a few days. The Food Bank usually feeds around 700 to 800 people in the community each month, although this year they’re estimating that number is actually closer to 900 people each month. All of the food they provide relies entirely upon donations from the community. Donations of all types of food are always welcome, as well as non-perishable products like soap, shampoo, laundry detergent and so on. Monetary donations are also extremely helpful to the Food Bank, as they use those to buy perishable foods like meat, dairy, and eggs. For those looking to lend a hand and provide any of these needed items, the Food Bank is open for donations from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday to Friday, at their location at 305 Fairford St. W. They also have donation bins located at Co-op Marketplace, Superstore, and Safeway for easy drop-off donation.

Grain companies have never liked the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) with its mandate to “regulate the industry in the interests of producers.” For over 100 years the CGC has had the legal responsibility to stop grain companies from using faulty weights, grades and inspections, because all too often these companies have deliberately tried to cheat farmers to make higher profits for themselves. Some things never change. Over the past couple of decades, the CGC’s ability to do its job for farmers has been eroded by governments influenced by lobbying from the grain companies. The CGC has been most seriously undermined when governments have appointed Chief Commissioners who previously worked for -- and whose thinking and values are aligned with – the very grain companies they are now tasked with regulating. Over the past several months, Agriculture Canada and the grain companies, in concert with the current senior staff of the CGC, have been re-writing the Canada Grain Act, mostly behind closed doors . Grain company foxes are advising on how to guard the producers’ hen house.
Their proposed changes to the Act – a grain company wish list -- will be put in front of the new Minister of Agriculture immediately after this fall’s federal election, with the expectation it will be quickly passed into law by Parliament. This wish list will call for the repeal of the CGC’s mandate to “regulate the industry in the interests of grain producers”. Changing the CGC’s role from policing the industry, safeguarding the fairness, quality and integrity of Canada’s grain system to instead becoming merely an optional service provider to the grain companies, would cause huge losses for grain farmers. Sidelining the referee would fix the game in favour of the companies. Farmers are fighting back against the seed companies’ efforts to force farmers to beg (and pay) to save and reuse seed we grow on our own farms. Now farmers need to stand up to the grain companies’ efforts to grab total control of all aspects of the grain handling and marketing system. This election, farmers need to make sure all their federal candidates know that the Canadian Grain Commission and its mandate to protect grain farmers’ interests are essential to maintaining a healthy farming sector in Canada. - Stewart Wells, a farmer near Swift Current

It’s not your average fundraiser run — this one gets a bit messier than most. For the fourth year, the Habitat for Humanity Colour Run Walk Skip will take place down in Kiwanis Pavillion in Wakamow Valley on Sept. 14, with an 11 a.m. start to the fun run after the opening ceremonies and a fun warmup.

In addition to the four colour stations along the course, each participant is given a colour packet to do whatever they like with — dust yourself with it or maybe someone running with you, or save it until the end of the run to shower over the crowd during the annual group photo. Either way, there’s no way possible to miss out on becoming a walking kaleidoscope.

Tee-off for organ donors at charity golf tournament Larissa Kurz
Organizers of the annual Transplant Trot charity run have broadened their horizons to plan the first-ever Transplant Trot Golf Tournament. Being held on Aug. 24 at the Deer Ridge Golf Course, the tournament is an extension of their continued cause: raising awareness about organ and The golf tournament is the first time the Transplant Trot team tissue donation in has expanded to other events Canada. The Transplant Trot celebrated the fifth year running in May, with around 150 walkers taking part in the event. Kevyn Gadd, one of the event’s organizers, hopes to see more of the same support for this new fundraiser. With Saskatchewan planning on releasing its online donor registry in March, the Transplant Trot team felt like adding some events to keep organ donation front of mind, including a Sock Hop in February and the golf tournament. “We thought this year we’d add a little bit aside from the Trot, to keep transplants in people’s minds and out in the open, to remind people how important it is,” said Gadd. “We thought events throughout the year leading up to March would be a fun idea.” Teams of four can still register, either by picking up a registration form at the Deer Ridge Pro Shop beforehand or showing up on tournament day before tee-off at 1pm. The 18-hole tournament will close up with a banquet supper for the golfers, included in the registration fee. As of now, the golf tournament is a one-time fundraiser for the Transplant Trot, although Gadd thought that a good turnout of support could bring the tournament back in the future. For more information, call the Transplant Trot at (306) 694-0767 or stop by the Deer Ridge Golf Course for a pamphlet.

For a Moose Jaw boy, a misdiagnosed football injury has turned Easton Mengel’s life into a living hell, as he is now in such constant pain that he can barely get off the couch. Mengel, 9, is similar to most boys his age. He is passionate about war history, internet memes, SpongeBob SquarePants, and playing football. However, his time on the gridiron came to a screeching halt last August when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his knee during practice. His parents took him to the doctor, but due to medical neglect and “through a serious of fails on our health-care system’s part,” Mengel developed an ailment called type 2 Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CPRS), explained his mother, Britten Hepting. She thinks her son wouldn’t have developed CPRS if health-care staff had done their jobs properly. “His brain reprogrammed itself,” she said. “His nervous system doesn’t work properly anymore, so it sends the wrong signals to his body. So that turns into pain.” The family would go through a frustrating five-month ordeal before Mengel eventually received physiotherapy. He now performs his physio in a pool, while his family bought him a pop-up hot tub to also ease
Got socks? Easton Mengel, 9, shows off most of the 69 pairs of socks he has received since the Socks for Smiles campaign began a few months ago. Photo courtesy Britten Hepting his discomfort. Hepting joked that it became expensive to fill up the bathtub three times a day. CPRS causes chronic pain all over Mengel’s body, with his legs the most severely affected. He has described the feeling as if he is being burned or stabbed all over his body, according to the Facebook page Socks for Smiles. According to the McGill Pain Index, CPRS
is rated 42 out of 50 on the pain scale, which makes it the most painful chronic pain condition. This pain is higher than cutting off one’s toe or giving birth. “The pain my little boy is in is just indescribable,” Hepting said, adding Mengel suffers from seizures since the pain is so bad, while she can’t hug him to comfort him. CPRS has left Mengel bedridden — mostly on the couch — and unable to play sports, hang out with friends, or do anything he used to enjoy doing. He also missed more than 90 days of school. “This has been a living hell for us,” added Hepting. Easton’s sister Oakley has been vocal about supporting her brother. “Watching such a bright soul lose so much hope — as he is bedridden — can be so heartbreaking,” his sister Oakley wrote on Facebook. “I know if he could right now, he would be out in the field as the little football star he is.” Hepting bought Mengel a pair of humorous socks to cheer him up, and from there, the Socks for Smiles campaign was born. Since launching earlier this year, many people — including in Rotterdam, the Netherlands — have sent Mengel socks to boost his spirit.
So far 69 pairs — or 138 in total — have been received. Residents can support this campaign by sending socks; liking the Facebook group; and sharing the group with others. This campaign has been incredibly worth it, Hepting said. Mengel may have bad days, but will be instantly cheered up when a package arrives in the mail for him to open. The family is using the Socks for Smiles campaign to raise awareness about Complex Regional Pain Syndrome since there is very little research being done on it, Hepting said. She wonders how one of the most painful ailments known to mankind could be so little understood. Hepting intends to contact Premier Scott Moe to raise this issue with him. She wants him to know funding for research is needed; she doesn’t think it’s fair that Mengel had his life stolen from him at age eight. “My child lost his complete identity because of this. He used to be such an athletic child,” she added. “He was happy all the time. He lit up every room he went into. Now he’s just, like, a shell. So we need funding for research. And it’s not going to happen unless people know about it.”

Three corporations threaten to dominate global business, politics A comedy TV show called Get Smart in the 1960s starred two agents – Agent 89 and Agent 99 – fighting to keep the world safe from an Eastern European agency called CAOS. Some 40 years later the world is facing potential takeover by three corporations with more power than CAOS ever had and supported by one-third or more of the planet’s population. They are everyday names – Facebook, Google and Amazon. All are public companies with a combined market value of $1.8 trillion, give or take a billion or two. These companies exert more control on our lives than any other set of corporations or government. Google dominates the Internet search engines with tremendous advertising revenues sucked from other media. Annual profits of $30 billion are used to subsidize

other unprofitable ventures: Google Home controls, Waymo self-driving cars and a host of other technological innovations. Facebook with two billion users dominates online social media. When it comes across a promising upstart competitor Facebook buys it out like it did with Instagram. Amazon dominates online retailing with sales of $894 billion. Amazon has used cloud storage service technology profits to subsidize the online retailing business before it became profitable. The Amazon online retail business is destroying small business across the globe. All three have used profits from other lines of business to subsidize losing ventures and buy out competitors. Generally anti-competition laws in most countries frown on use of profits to subsidize and grow other lines of business. So far, aside from some European Union rulings and U.S. justice department ramblings

nothing is being done. These companies are so domineering and so popular any action against them could stir political backlash. Yet they can be and are used by their owners or other users to influence and determine elections. The last U.S. presidential election was but one example. Their dominance and disruptive power was shown by a speculative announcement that rattled stock markets: stock prices of freight companies FEDEX and UPS took deep hits when Amazon announced it was just considering building its own cargo company. Facebook rattled government cages earlier this year with plans for a global digital currency called Libra. To try and satisfy government Libra is a consortium involving MasterCard, Visa and a host of other companies. The existence of Libra will threaten the authority of individual governments to man-

age interest rates, money and budgets. The Libra currency could supplant use of the U.S. dollar, Euro and Chinese Yuan as trading currencies for exports and imports. Most of the planet’s population is impacted daily by one or all of these technology giants from sharing information to finding information to making purchases to having our supposedly private data used to sell us stuff. This is one of those cases where the genie is out of the box, has gone out of control with no one apparently willing or able to do something corrective about the situation.

Local teen group explore ideas of hope in new art exhibit The newest art exhibit at the Cultural Centre focuses on a representation of hope as imagined by each local artist, to talk about mental illness and raise awareness for suicide prevention. The ‘Hope Is. . .’ collection was organized by the Journey 2 Hope youth chapter, a local suicide awareness group recently formed in Moose Jaw as an offshoot of the larger Journey to Hope support group. As the group of students began collecting pieces for display, they realized they would need more to fill the entire gallery space, so they reached out to the rest of the community for contributions. The result is an eclectic array of inspired works that represent very personal experiences, in mediums that range from poetry to pottery to quilting and more. Each piece of art depicts the artist’s answer to the question, “What is hope to you?” The purpose is to show the prevalence of hope all around us and how it can be found in so many different places, to inspire hope for those who are struggling to find it themselves. Unlike other art exhibits, some pieces actually include a written blurb explaining the artist’s inspiration for the piece, offering insight into the meaning of the work for them. Upon approaching the Cultural Centre to display the collection, Journey 2 Hope caught the eye of the Cultural Centre’s artist in residence, Jess Zoerb, who submitted a few pieces. One is a collaborative piece from Soul Co.’s tour around the province, where each attendee on the tour made a feather that represented their authentic truth that now makes up the two majestic wings of the piece. Another piece is actually a work done by Zoerb’s sister Niki Thorson, who passed away in 2017. In fact, a number of artists cite their own experiences with mental illness, suicide, and loss as an influence in their work. Jan Stewart, a member of the Journey to Hope parent chapter and facilitator of the youth chapter, is impressed
This untitled piece is by Niki Thorson, submitted posthumously by her sister Jess Zoerb with a story about handling her grief following Thorson’s death.

Moose Jaw can certainly expect to see more from Journey 2 Hope. The ‘Hope Is. . .’ collection will be displayed in the Cultural Centre until Sept. 14, which includes World Suicide Prevention Day on Sept. 10. Just before the end of the exhibit, on Sept. 7, there will be an artist’s reception at the gallery from 1-3 p.m., as a chance to meet the many artists who contributed. “Every single piece has a story, and that story is hope,” said Stewart. “It’s beyond any typical art show. It’s unique, empowering and enlightening and inspiring.”

Moose Jaw receives $690,000 for policing initiatives in community Moose Jaw Express Staff
The City of Moose Jaw is receiving $690,000 from the provincial government for policing initiatives in the community and area. The Ministry of Corrections and Policing is providing $330,000 through the Municipal Police Grants fund to support three existing police service positions in 2019-20, according to a news release. Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is also providing $360,000 for two police officers as part of the Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan initiative. This $690,000 is part of the Moose Jaw Service Funding Agreement for 2019-20. “The funding benefits help to ensure public safety in Moose Jaw,” said Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence on behalf of Christine Tell, minister of Corrections and Policing. “We’re proud to be able to support the Moose Jaw Police Service in the work it does every day in
protecting citizens.” The Ministry of Corrections and Policing provides funds to urban police services across the province to support 128 municipal police positions and policing initiatives.
The funding for Moose Jaw includes positions in the Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan division, which works to improve safety on the highways through increased awareness and enforcement of traffic regulations.
“The City of Moose Jaw and the Moose Jaw board of police commissioners appreciate the continued support from the Municipal Police Grants program,” Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie said in the news release. “Our police service works to keep our community safe, harmonious and inclusive and this program allows us to better address shared public safety priorities.”The Moose Jaw Police Service values its ongoing partnership with the provincial government through the Municipal Police Grants, Moose Jaw Police Service Chief Rick Bourassa said. These grants provide resources for the police service’s active involvement in traffic safety enhancement across the southwest region through Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan, he added. It also makes it possible for police to operate the Police and Crisis Team in the municipality.
Make mayor accountable for buying “working lunches” and cake with taxpayer dollars In a previous rant about city employee expenses Moose Jaw Express publisher Rob Ritchie wondered why highly paid city employees need to pad their salaries by up to eight per cent with taxpayer-paid expenses. Twenty-one city employees up expenses worth by Ron Walter racked $75,573 during one year – all money that came out of taxpayers’ pockets. Some employees added 13 per cent to their annual salaries that way. Wonder what would happen if you or I added that kind of money to our employer bills? Now the taxpayer expense claims by city employees and elected officials might be justified. They seem to meet the scrutiny and policy administered by the city. The main concern stems from not knowing exactly what these claims are about.We have to take politicians’ word they are justified. Research of city expenses by the blogger the mayor and council tried to gag with the new communications policy provides more evidence of a need for public accountability of taxpayer funds. Use by the mayor of his city credit card bought him a $48.99 birthday cake, a cake that the city apparently
wasn’t reimbursed for until the Moose Jaw Independent brought the matter to the mayor’s attention. His $28.99 credit card purchase of a cake for then councillor Don Mitchell stretches the definition of city business. It appears lunch expenses include “working lunches” and hospitality expenses that might just as easily come out of pocket from non-entitled politicians. Then we have the mayor’s 2017 expense claims for the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) convention. Moose Jaw council members receive a daily meal allowance from the city for these SUMA conferences. Yet Mayor Fraser Tolmie chose to submit a meal expense claim for $100.29 including a 20 per cent tip. Are his tips that generous when he uses his own money? Coun. Crystal Froese adjusted her daily allowance to make up for meal claims. How can we be certain that the mayor and other officials aren’t abusing expense claims on a daily basis? We can’t. There is only one way to curb potential or existing abuses of taxpayer money with expense claims: Make them public. Given the above claims and the possibility of abuse Moose Jaw needs a public airing of expense claims. Put them online. An online site listing expense claims by the mayor, council and senior management would create more comfort among taxpayers of prudent spending on city business.
Such a site should act as a deterrent against abuse by all but the most brazen birthday cake buyers. Precedent for online posting of elected members’ expenses exists. Both the Canadian Parliament and the Saskatchewan Legislature require posting of expense claims. That’s how the public found out about federal minister Bev Oda’s $16 glass of orange juice. Looking at the Saskatchewan site one can discover Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence expensed claims worth $7,078.71 in 2018 – mostly for telecommunications, travel and tenders. Moose Jaw North MLA Warren Michelson’s expense claims amounted to $7,332.60 – again mostly for telecommunications, travel and tenders The federal site shows MP Tom Lukiwski spent $471,000 last year with $288,000 for employees, $68,000 on travel, about $12,000 on a second residence, $14,000 on telecom and around $21,000 on constituency office rentals. We haven’t a clue on what the mayor and council members claim as expenses. A petition to get these expenses online in the public view is in order.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Too many tourists for tourism employee
Do tourists have expectations that are impossible to meet by workers in the tourism industry? Perhaps. But not a single tourist I know wants to overhear a tourist worker, in a tourist information booth, comment to her colleague “I wish there weren’t so many tourists here.” Joyce Walter I don’t think it registered with her that I could hear her reFor Moose Jaw Express marks, but if she had been at the top of her game, she should have figured it out. Even with my back turned to her while examining some cookbooks, it was easy to hear her comments. Tourists and deafness do not always travel together. Her colleague and I shared a look and he sheepishly looked away in embarrassment. I smiled, thinking of all the workshops that worker should be compelled to attend, workshops where she might learn how to be a welcoming ambassador for her community — even if tourists ask the same questions over and over, sometimes stop in only to use the washroom, and at worst, walk off with the bathroom tissue and towels. This particular community, on the weekend we visited,
was the destination for thousands of visitors who stopped in to enjoy a wide variety of activities over three full days. Their spending in the community had cash registers ringing and business owners beaming with joy. There was no joy behind the counter at the museum’s tourist information booth. There was gloom because this staff person also didn’t want to work extra hours, but she supposed she would have to because she needed the money, but there was “more fun things” to do elsewhere. I continued eavesdropping while she talked about not having a tan this summer because she was always working indoors. “Poor, poor girl,” I thought as she continued whining rather than asking if she could help me find a souvenir, a bauble with which to remember our visit. Her attitude was in stark contrast to the ladies and gentlemen who greeted us at a pancake breakfast the next morning and at a perogy supper that evening. When they found out we were tourists from Moose Jaw they greeted us with enthusiasm and expressed interest in our travels. Not one of them complained about our presence and how we were some of the too-many tourists stopping by. At the breakfast one volunteer helped carry our plates, brought us condiments we had forgotten and her colleague would not let us dump our own garbage.

Quilters and crocheters will enjoy the Fall Into Fabric sale Larissa Kurz
After a rousing success last year, Hunger in Moose Jaw is bringing back the Fall into Fabric sale for all the crafty souls in Moose Jaw. Taking place on Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Zion United Church, the sale will once again feature fabric, yarn, scrapbooking supplies, knitting needles, and all kinds of other crafting supplies — all donations from the community. Last year, Hunger in Moose Jaw executive director Sharla Sept estimated the sale collected a car trailer’s worth of fabric to go home with new owners — one that fit two cars, even — after an outpouring of donations from community members. The community support has been incredible, said Sept, and she has high hopes for this year’s continuation of what turned out to be a popular fundraiser. “It went really well for our first year, and that’s why we’re doing it again. We just think it’s a really good fundraiser and it’s kind of unique,” said Sept. All of the funds raised from the sale will go directly to Hunger in Moose Jaw, into the many food security programs the organization runs for the community. Donations have been pouring in, and more are always welcome. Hunger in Moose Jaw will be accepting donations until Sept. 5, at their office during their summer office hours. There will be lots to sift through at the sale again this year, with a little something to supply whatever textile project is currently on the mind. “Come and check it out, our prices are really reasonable and everything is pre-measured,” said Sept. “Or even just come in, have a coffee with us and chat about Hunger in Moose Jaw. . . It’s just a great opportunity for us to be out in the community as well.”
SNAPPLE BEVERAGES Assorted 473 mL
What a stark contrast in the attitudes of volunteers compared with that of someone being paid to be attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Perhaps, I considered, they should changes places: the breakfast staff to work at the museum tourist booth and the no-tan chick cleaning tables and depositing garbage at the breakfast. But no, that would never work. Her attitude would drive customers away from the pancake breakfast were she to complain about too many tourists wanting to eat pancakes and sausages outdoors in the summer sun. No doubt she would mutter about running for salt and pepper or would dump coffee in someone’s lap by not paying attention to the job at hand. But at the museum, souvenir sales would likely skyrocket with congenial ladies and gents offering assistance, pleasant conversation and community information. We didn’t stick around to learn if the disgruntled worker’s day improved but based on what we heard, my suspicion is that it didn’t — especially if pesky tourists kept insisting on invading her domain. Pity. Joyce Walter can be reached at email@example.com The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

Holman celebrates 90th birthday Hard work the key to longevity for long-time farmer Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
For some folks who live into their ninth decade or more, the secret to longevity is a glass of wine a day, maybe a favourite food or two and having family and friends for support. For George Holman, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday with a special celebration at the Central Lutheran Church, it’s a rather simple solution – good, old fashioned hard work. “It’s like I just told that chap I was talking to, hard work never hurt nobody,” Holman said during a brief break from visiting with dozens of well-wishers at the event. “I started out driving horses, probably when I six years old… part of it is different lifestyles, it’s all mental now. There’s no real manual work, everything is done by machines. Back then, you were out walking with the horses; you’d go half-a-mile and you’d stop and rest and then you’d keep going. You got your
George Holman celebrated his 90th birthday with family and friends at the Central Lutheran Church recently exercise with them at the same time.” Holman spent much of his life on a farm 10 miles east of Moose Jaw and in between his work in the fields, he also drove
school bus for years while also running a snowplow on his tractor to keep the municipal roads open during winter. Then there was a time spent working for
a small machine shop in the city before it was back on the farm, this time helping out his neighbours with their crops. “I guess you could say I’ve lived a mixed life,” Holman said with a laugh. In between the days spent working, Holman married and had three children, with the birthday party featuring plenty of family and friends to wish him well on the occasion. “I think it’s really nice… there’s a whole few tables of inlaws and family, so it’s nice to be here and see everyone again,” he said. So does he see a 100th birthday celebration in the future? “I don’t know, but my parents were both long lived, my mother lived to be 96 and my father until he was 87, so we’ll have to see,” Holman said.
Vandalism at community gardens “disappointing to see” Larissa Kurz
Sometime overnight between Aug. 13 and Aug 14, the Grey Ave location of the Yara Community Gardens was the site of vandalism on the property. The two swings on the children’s play structure were removed and have gone missing, and some produce was removed from plots in the garden and scattered nearby. Sharla Sept, executive director of Hunger in Moose Jaw, is disappointed to see this happen in the space. “We’re actually are really disappointed because our gardeners work really, really hard at that, and it’s just realThe two swings and their chains have disap- ly sad to see their hard work be destroyed like that,” said peared from the Gray Ave. location, as well as Sept. some produce from the garden was stolen. (sup- “It’s for everybody and we want to make sure that it stays for everybody and we don’t want to have to take it down plied)
or anything of that sort,” added Sept regarding the play structure. “We just really would like people to respect it.” Vandalism has happened at the gardens before, and Sept would remind the community that the gardens aren’t for public picking, as they are individually rented to each gardener for personal use. Hunger in Moose Jaw has not reported the incident to authorities and is just hoping to see the missing swings returned if possible. If you notice them somewhere in the community, or you know where they are, Sept asks that you contact Hunger in Moose Jaw’s office at 1 (306) 692-1916, or drop them off either during business hours or at the back door of the building.

Popular event features newly refurbished steam engine Shortline 101 rides during annual event Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
Standing near a recently worked steam engine gives you a feeling of just how much energy the massive machines use and produce. For the 75 Case Traction Engine on display at the Moose Jaw Western Development Museum during Blow Off Some Steam Day – even though the massive machine had been resting for the better part of an hour, the waves of heat baking off the super-sized boiler made it almost uncomfortable to stand near for any length of time. Just having an opportunity to experience such an artifact of engineering up close – and especially to see it in action earlier in the day – was one of the reasons the annual event remains so popular at the WDM. “We celebrate all things steam,” explained education and public programs coordinator Karla Rasmussen. “We’re fortunate to have a few artifacts that are related to steam, everyone knows our Vulcan locomotive, which is the crown jewel of our collection here. But we’re also very happy to have our traction engine fully restored now... It’s definitely nice to have the demonstration pieces. When I started, the first time I did this event we didn’t have anything that was actively going and we were the only WDM at the time that didn’t have a demonstration piece. “So last year the train came back, which was wonderful, and the traction engine going this year brings a different look at history coming to life. It’s one thing to see a static display, but when it’s out and

That included Tim Pomeroy, the WDM provincial chief engineer and restoration manager, who was on hand throughout the day as hundreds of patrons made their way through the event. “It was fantastic, the weather cleared off and co-operated and both steam en-
gines ran perfectly,” Pomeroy said. “We had a lot of happy people here today, not just the operators but the public as well. There were a lot of little kids where this was their first exposure to something that our parents and grandparents took for granted… We were running time machines today, we were taking people back in time.” Having the Case traction engine fully up and running was an added bonus for the event, especially with the amount of time and effort put into its restoration. “It’s one thing to have them stuffed and mounted in a museum atmosphere, but it’s something else to have them doing
the job they were built for, to not only see them work, but to feel the heat off them, hear the whistle, see the fire,” Pomeroy said. “A lot of people have no concept of how steam works until you show them the fire inside there and then lights come on, they understand.” Youngsters who took in the event also had a chance to take part in a steam-themed scavenger hunt through the WDM building, seeking out pieces of coal that had been hidden in various places of interest. All-in-all, Rasmussen felt the day was a solid success, with the volunteers and workers a key part of how well the day went. “A lot of our steam volunteers aren’t from Moose Jaw, they’ve traveled great distances,” she said “A lot of them have set aside personal time to come down here, they’ve helped with maintenance to get these machines operational… (the Day) it’s just a wonderful way to all come together.”
The K+S Shortline 101 steam engine is driven into it’s storage bay.

Visit to Killdeer badlands might have motivated future visit to prairie dog colonies By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express
It was a nice Saturday morning, really nice for a road adventure. “Where do you want to go?” asked my partner and wife, glancing up from her morning pear. “The Killdeer badlands in Grasslands National Park,” I replied. “Oh, no. You’ve been there before. Why do you want to go again?” Badlands are not her favourite; but since I grew up near Alberta badlands they have always fascinated me. “They built a paved road more or less along the badlands and I want to see what they did. We might see some deer.” Grudgingly she agreed to go. Just outside Moose Jaw two foxes stood on the edge of a corn field. One was on three legs using the fourth to scratch its belly. A big buck deer stood in the ditch near Ardill, then slowly walked away from the camera. Most crops looked great, considering the fears of total crop failure before the June rains. We drove past the Wood Mountain Regional Park noting all the trailers and campers there for the Wood Mountain Rodeo, the oldest rodeo in Canada.
“Are we there yet?” teased my partner. “Just over the hill” “You’ve been saying that all morning.” A few hills on, the gravel road to Grasslands National Park appeared. Entering the park, we saw the narrow-paved road on our left but first drove into the valley and the park. The place sure has changed. Ten years ago on my first visit, an aborted hike, a few trees, the locked up McGowan ranch house, a few old outbuildings and a

plank across Rock Creek was it. Now the McGowan ranch house has been fixed up as east bloc office and visitor centre. A campground, rental teepees and over half a dozen little cabins can handle visitors. And there are public washrooms. A bridge spans the creek. Guides offer daily activities. The paved winding road was cool, meandering through the grasslands and close to the badlands. At several spots, visitors can park and walk to lookout points. My partner preferred to stay in the car in the parking spot for handicapped persons while I walked to the lookouts – no con-
vincing her there are no snakes, although she did venture on one short walk. We did notice the parking spots for handicapped persons were all a long distance from the walking trails. It was sunnier than any time I had visited but the badlands were still spectacular. I later sent some photos to a cousin in Alberta, who thought the photos were from Alberta. Heading out of the park my partner admitted the Killdeer badlands were different. “Are there badlands in the west bloc of Grasslands National Park or is it just prairie dogs?” she asked. I explained the west bloc is rugged but not like these badlands. “Maybe we’ll go there,“ she said, her voice trailing off, “in ten years.” Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net
We use scales in our office when we assess our patients. These aren’t the types of scales that tell us about someone’s weight, but rather they are scales to help describe a patient’s by Dr. Steven Heidinger, level of pain. There are Moose Jaw Chiropractor pain scales that identify neck pain disability, back pain disability and numerous other pain rating scales that are scientifically valid measures of a patient’s level of discomfort. The most simple and common pain scale is one that measures zero through 10, where zero represents no pain whatsoever and 10 is the worst possible pain. After I welcome a new patient to our office one of the first things I do, is look at the paper-work they kindly filled out in the waiting room. I almost always go straight to where they filled in the pain scale. Pain scales intrigue me because of how widely different they can be filled out among those who describe similar injuries. Why is it that someone can hit their thumb with a hammer and rate their pain as a 4 out of 10, yet another person hits their thumb with the same force yet calls it a 9 out of 10? Pain is not just a physical reaction to a physical trauma. There is a large emotional component to how one experiences pain. The Canadian Pain Task Force (CPTF), in their June 2019 report, recognizes the World Health Organization’s classification system for pain assessment to take into account emotional distress. Psychologically, pain, especially chronic pain, has been linked to depression, anxiety and even helplessness. The CPTF also emphasizes the significant social consequences of chronic pain such as withdrawal from relationships, stigma and criticism. Pain not only affects one’s emotions. A person’s emotional and psychological well-being affects how a person experiences pain as well. A person who rates his or her pain out of 10 as being a 9, may report it to be 4 if they weren’t dealing with other stresses, such as financial distress, divorce or issues in the workplace. Twenty percent of Canadians live with moderate to severe chronic pain. Is it possible we are not recognizing how unique pain is to the individual? This is why I believe pain management can be so difficult. Successful pain management should go beyond a “one size fits all” prescription and should recognize how much pain affects our life and how much life affects our pain.
Healing the pain requires healing the mind

Rabbinical students stopped to connect with local Jewish community Larissa Kurz
As part of a nearly 70-year-old program titled Roving Rabbis, two rabbinical students visited Moose Jaw on Aug. 15 to make connections with the local Jewish community and talk about their Judaism. Rabbi Mendel Super from Melbourne, Australia, and Rabbi Eli Citron from Manhattan, New York, spent three weeks traveling to towns and cities throughout Saskatchewan to meet with Jews and hear their stories.
“We find people in Saskatchewan - in general and especially in the smaller cities - are actually really friendly.” -Rabbi Mendel Super
Their visits are more than an informational presentation. Super and Citron were here to meet with Moose Jaw’s Jewish community in one-on-one visits to hear the stories of how they came to Moose Jaw, and how they practice Ju-

daism. Of course, beyond making connections and learning about Jewish life in the city, the rabbis are also looking to be of assistance for the community. They travel with books, educational material, and
religious articles for those who don’t have a permanent Judaic presence in their area, and they are more than happy to connect people with the closest local Chabad branches. The program is run every summer by the
Chabad Organization, which is based in New York but has branches throughout the world — including Chabad Lubavitch of Regina and Chabad Lubavitch of Saskatoon, who hosted the Roving Rabbis during their travels here. “We’ve visited quite a number of cities already and we’ve had a really good reception. People are quite happy to see us,” said Super. “We find people in Saskatchewan — in general and especially in the smaller cities — are actually really friendly.” The goal of the outreach program is to see the vibrancy of the Jewish community and make Judaism accessible for those who practice in smaller communities. Super and Citron were open to meet wherever people felt most comfortable — at home, at work, or in a public space — to talk about the beauty of Judaism while they were here. ‘“We’re really looking forward to meeting as many Jews as possible during our stay in Moose Jaw,” said Super, prior to their Moose Jaw visit.

Sask. Party candidate Tim McLeod gets early start on door-knocking Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Although the provincial election is more than a year away, Tim McLeod has already been pounding the streets of Moose Jaw introducing himself to residents. McLeod, the Sask. Party candidate for the constituency of Moose Jaw North, was nominated three months ago to replace outgoing MLA Warren Michelson in the 2020 provincial election. Since then, McLeod has been out in the community meeting people and making his face known. “(I’m) pleased with the response so far,” he said recently. McLeod and members of the constituency committee conducted a door-knocking campaign in July, where they went around to almost 500 houses and handed out flyers with information about him. When McLeod knocked on doors, he introduced himself and explained he was the candidate for the Sask. Party for their riding in the upcoming election. He also wanted to know if they were aware he was the candidate and if they had any questions. “I door-knocked with my wife and children, so it was nice for people to see my whole clan,” he said, “and certainly get a
Tim McLeod sense of who I am and what’s most important to me, which is my family.” Few people raised any specific issues with him since most people seemed to be happy with how the province was being managed, McLeod continued. While that was encouraging, he is also open to hearing criticisms since he believes that is an important part of being an elected official. McLeod never had a big desire to get into politics originally, he explained, but
when he and his family moved to Moose Jaw a decade ago, he became a member of the Moose Jaw North board of directors. As he watched the political scene unfold across Saskatchewan and saw the positive things that former premier Brad Wall and current Premier Scott Moe were doing, he was encouraged. “My professional career is as an advocate,” McLeod continued. “I advocate for other people’s interests; that’s what I’m about. So I see politics as a natu-
ral progression … . It’s a natural fit for someone with my background.” Serving on the Moose Jaw North board has allowed McLeod to see just how tireless of a representative Michelson has been for his constituency. McLeod noted Michelson has been a great guy with whom to work, along with the many dedicated board members. “I don’t think there’s many people who work harder than Warren in terms of being accessible to constituents,” continued McLeod, noting this is an important lesson for anyone who wants to get into politics: MLAs have to be able to represent their constituents’ interests in the legislature in Regina. While the election is still more than a year away, McLeod noted he is not going into it with any specific issues in mind. Instead, he would advocate for whatever issues his constituents bring to him if he is elected. Since the start of August, McLeod and the committee have been working hard in preparation for the prime rib dinner with Premier Scott Moe that was held on Saturday, Aug. 17 at the exhibition convention centre.
From The Kitchen
63-ye a r- o ld C h ate l a i n e c o o k b o o k st i l l re l ev a nt By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express
Chatelaine Magazine was at one time the kitchen bible of every homemaker. Recipes were religiously cut out and pasted in scrapbooks for future reference. In 1956 Chatelaine published the cookbook, 401 Tested Recipes. Recipes were selected from readers’ favourites and all were tested in the Chalelaine Institute kitchen. Marie Holmes, then the director of the institute said: “No meal planner can ever have enough recipes. The more she has the more variety and interest she can add to her meals.” This week’s recipes come from this book. ••• Chopped Mustard Relish 3 medium cucumbers 4 medium onions 3 medium apples 1 small bunch celery 1 small cauliflower 1 large sweet red pepper 6 tbsps. coarse pickling salt 4 cups cold water Sauce: 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 2 tbsps. dry mustard 2 3/4 cups granulated sugar 1 1/2 tsps. turmeric 2 cups cider vinegar
In the morning, peel cucumbers and onions. Peel and core apples. Wash and cut up celery and cauliflower. Wash and seed pepper. Place all vegetables through a food chopper and put into a large kettle. Add salt to the water and pour over chopped vegetables. Mix and let stand. In the evening, drain vegetables thoroughly, pressing out liquid. Make a sauce by combining flour, mustard, sugar and turmeric and gradually add vinegar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Pour over drained vegetables in kettle. Place on low heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Turn into hot, sterilized jars and seal. Makes 4 pints. ••• Strawberry Pineapple Marmalade 1/2 orange 1/2 lemon 1 cup water 4 cups sliced strawberries 1-20 oz. can crushed pineapple sugar juice from 1/2 lemon Cut orange and lemon in paper-thin slices and quarter the slices. Add water and let stand overnight. In the morning bring to a boil and cook gently for 30 minutes. Add strawberries and pineapple. Measure into a large kettle and add 3/4 cup sugar for each cup
of fruit. Bring to boil and cook 15-20 minutes until jelly test is obtained. Just before this add lemon juice. Pour mixture into hot jelly glasses. Seal. Makes 8-6 oz. glasses. ••• Rice and Peach Crisp 2 eggs 1 cup milk 1/3 cup white or brown sugar 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. cinnamon 3 cups cooked rice 1 1/2 cups sliced peaches 2 tbsps. butter 2 tbsps. sugar 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 1/3 cup all-purpose flour Beat eggs slightly.

Simpson Seeds celebrates 40 years of feeding the world Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Simpson Seeds started out 40 years ago as a small family-run company doing business in mainly Saskatchewan, before eventually evolving into an organization that now conducts transactions worldwide. “It’s a milestone. Forty years is a long time to be running a company,” said President/ CEO Greg Simpson on Aug. 13, exactly four decades to the day when Simpson Seeds became incorporated. “Certainly (we) would not have thought that we’d be where we are today when we started the company, but here we are … . We’re quite happy to celebrate 40 years.” Brand recognition The company is unique since it is an international family business, where what it does is normally handled by multinational organizations, he continued. It has been successful due to its core values: family, quality, integrity and innovation. Similarly, Simpson Seeds has great brand recognition among its customers, while it also has a great team that contributes to its success. Some employees have been with the company between 25 and 35 years. One aspect to the company’s success has been its purpose: nourishing the world, Simpson said. The business brings much value to the farming community by being a conduit so producers can export their products. Simpson Seeds has sold millions of tonnes of lentils across the world, said John Simpson, Greg’s brother and company vice-president and project manager. Numerous bowls of soup can be made from one 100-pound bag. The demand for vegetable protein — lentils, peas and chickpeas — is growing, agreed Greg. Plant-based protein is becoming more popular, as evidenced by restaurant chains serving “beyond-meat burgers.” Pulses, lentils and chickpeas all fit into the future due to sustainability and affordability issues, echoed Elyce Simpson- Fras-

Many people are incorporating these into their diets since meat is becoming expensive and they want a smaller environmental footprint. Simpson Seeds exports chickpeas, yellow peas and green peas to 85 countries. It processes seeds and lentils at its Moose Jaw plant. In the beginning When the Simpson family had its main farm southeast of Moose Jaw, father Jim saw the need in the 1970s to conduct more marketing for their products, get away from the Canadian Wheat Board and diversify what they were growing. Greg had just graduated from the University of Saskatchewan and acquired a job with Agriculture Canada. He inspected seed growers in southwest Saskatchewan, where he developed the idea to grow seeds, clean seeds on their farm, and then retail them to help diversify the family farm. Around this time, U of S professor Dr. Al Slinkard was also creating the Crop Development Centre in Saskatoon, since he pointed out Saskatchewan had the ideal growing conditions for lentils and peas. Greg began growing peas in 1975, and by

1980, the family had experience to take on lentils and become a mixed farm. On Aug. 13, 1979, Simpson Seeds was incorporated and the family built a plant on their property in the winter of 1980.
“Certainly (we) would not have thought that we’d be where we are today when we started the company, but here we are … We’re quite happy to celebrate 40 years.” -CEO Greg Simpson Jim was president for one year, before he handed the reigns to son Greg so he could focus on public relations, meeting with growers and being an advisor. This meant it was up to Greg and John to run the company. Older brother Tom also became involved, but focused more on the farm operations side. In 1992, the family bought property on Moose Jaw’s northwest service road — which had nothing on it then — and built
a cleaning and processing plant. They also expanded the rail spur so they could have access to the railroad to ship their products. “The rail was key for our expansion,” said John. Expanding the company The company bought Kyle Seeds and its elevator in southwest Saskatchewan in 2008, along with that company’s processing plant in Swift Current. Simpson Seeds improved the plant, before making a major expansion three years ago. The company later shut down the elevator in Kyle. Simpson Seeds expanded into organic seeds last year due to major customer demand, especially from its European customers. While the Simpson family farm southeast of Moose Jaw is now certified as an organic site, the company’s main focus is still on lentils. “We’re just starting out, so it’s slow,” Elyce said. “But … we’ll grow the program slowly as we get familiar with (this area).” Trusted everywhere Farmers trust Simpson Seeds for two reasons: it is family and it is a community Canadian family business, said Greg. What’s also important is the company meets its obligations when serving customers, wherever and whomever they may be. “I think the fact we’re growers ourselves too (also helps),” said Elyce. Simpson Seeds knows what it takes to grow a crop, while this knowledge ranges from the seed to the supper table. Many of their competitors can’t provide that coverage. “Gate to plate, they say,” said Greg. “Or field to fork,” laughed Elyce. The future With the Earth’s population to grow to nine billion people in 2050, many people will need protein to sustain themselves, said Greg. Canada is well-positioned to feed the world; the future looks promising. There is the potential to expand into the fibre market, added Elyce. Besides high-protein foods such as lentils and chickpeas, fibre is also known to be healthy, so the opportunity exists to grow into this market.

Correction - Moose Jaw Express Staff Incorrect information appeared in an article in the May 1 Moose Jaw Express edition, called “Changes coming to Moose Jaw’s free landfill tipping program.” During city council’s April 22 regular meeting, council voted 6-1 to adopt the new landfill tipping program practices, while it also voted 6-1 to discontinue the previous practices. Coun. Brian Swanson was not opposed to both motions; he was opposed to only the first motion. Instead, the article should have stated that Mayor Fraser Tolmie was against the second motion. We regret the error and apologize for the misinformation.

City Hall Council Notes Twenty-seven residents reappointed to municipal boards until December Twenty-seven residents who sit on some of the municipality’s boards, committees or commissions have agreed to remain until December as city hall continues its review of these structures. Council approved the reappointment of the 27 residents — and two alternates — during its Aug. 12 regular meeting. All 27 people agreed to have their terms extended until Tuesday, Dec. 31; the terms were to originally expire on Saturday, Aug. 31. During council’s June 24 executive committee meeting, a recommendation was approved to direct city hall to perform a comprehensive review the structure of — and appointments to — all boards, committees and commissions.

the discussion, which forced council to take an electronic vote. How council voted is unknown since the e-ballots were destroyed afterward. Crystal Milburn, secretary/treasurer with the Downtown Moose Jaw Association, spoke briefly to council about the group’s goals and objectives, such as increasing traffic, encouraging more business growth, and seeing more businesses move to the area. She also explained how the group wants to beautify the area, promote it as a suitable shopping and work environment with a provincial economic development association. “We really feel (it’s) important for our board to have a voting member from council to help us liaise with the city and to guide some of our efforts,” Milburn added. Luhning and Froese then spoke about their desire to be council’s representative. “I would let my name stand to be on that board,” said Luhning, “(while I) appreciate (how) the new downtown association recognizes the fact that letting a city

rep have a vote is worth it for you to be able to be a good conduit back to the city to express what the needs of your association wants.” Froese thought she would make a good representative since she has experience with local area plans, including that of South Hill. She had some history with another downtown association group that attempted to form in 2014 and that brought some issues to city council about cleanliness and beautification. “I’ve also been involved with the Farmer’s Market, which is a bit of an economic incubator,” Froese added. “I’d love to bring some of my skillset and support to the committee as well.” In response, Luhning pointed out she is the only member on city council who runs a downtown business. She thought she would be a good fit to help this new association with some of its needs. One of council’s goals has been to not only attract businesses to the downtown but increase business in the downtown area, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. He was thrilled that the association came to council since he thought it was important for council to have a representative on the board as a way to be a conduit with the business community. “Council has worked very hard to bring (this) forward,” he remarked, adding city administration has given much effort to this as well. This will create an important experience for residents and visitors alike. Besides city council, a representative from the Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Moose Jaw will also be appointed as an ex-officio voting member.

City Hall Council Notes Low number of special needs transit riders concerns councillor Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Fewer residents took special needs transit during the second quarter of this year, which concerned Coun. Dawn Luhning since she thought that particular mode of transportation was highly used. According to a second-quarter report presented during city council’s Aug. 12 regular meeting, a total of 9,833 riders used special needs transit from April to June. In comparison, 10,470 people used special needs transit during the same time last year, which represents a decrease of 6.1 per cent. “I’m confused by that because I know the demand for special needs continues to be high,” said Luhning. “I don’t know if administration has an answer to that, or if there’s something missing in those numbers too that aren’t accounted for. It just looked odd to me.” This is an area administration is monitoring, said Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering. Officials are putting much thought and consideration into addressing why the numbers look low. While adminis-
tration will present a report to council later this year, he noted changes to major clientele and when certain buildings are open had an effect on ridership numbers. Council voted 6-1 to accept the Q2 report; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Other highlights City administration provided feedback to questions from councillors about the following areas: • The property assessment roll was open from March 6 to April 5 and 104 appeals were received. There were 24 residential/ agricultural properties that signed agreements to adjust. Hearings were scheduled for the remaining commercial appeals. The board of revision has until Sept. 2 to complete its decisions. The number of appeals was high since many businesses took advantage of the opportunity to appeal, said city clerk Myron Gulka-Tiechko. He didn’t know why that was but pointed out there has been plenty of activity the last couple of years for ap-
peals. • A request for proposal was issued for the design of a new city website and for content migration. Administration hopes to launch a new municipal website by early January 2020. • A three-member committee met on June 3 to work on recommendations about what future council remuneration should look like. The panel is composed of Gulka-Tiechko, Brenda Berry from the labour council and Greg McIntyre from the chamber of commerce. The next meeting is in September. • The parks department received one application for the adopt-a-bench program. Parks officials are waiting on the design from the applicant. • No applications have been received yet for the streetlight banner project. The parks department is still installing the banner brackets on the light poles. • A contractor has been hired to install leftturn signal lights at the intersections of
First Avenue Northwest and Caribou Street West, and Ninth Avenue Southwest and Lillooet Street West, for a cost of $581,162. The engineering department is now waiting for the contractor’s schedule, but expects the work to be completed by November. “These are problematic intersections in the city,” said Mickleborough. “We want to get them done.” • The majority of new residential builds during the second quarter were greenfill developments and not infill developments. There were 85 building permits issued with a value of more than $4.3 million, compared to 72 permits issued worth $4.6 million during the same time last year. So far this year 113 building permits worth $10.9 million have been issued for residential, commercial/industrial and institutional projects. • There were 50 new business licences issued, 136 renewed and 45 closed during Q2. Since January, there have been 124 new licences, 1,709 renewed and 129 closed.
City hall workshops ensure managers have better sense of accountability, urgency Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Accountability workshops have been held at city hall for all supervisory staff to help close identified gaps in customer service and ensure staff performs better in the future. The purpose of the workshops was to create a culture with a heightened sense of accountability, urgency and more defined philosophy of service to city council, the community and each other. “While we have great staff, we can always get better at what we do. There are always things we can do better,” city manager Jim Puffalt told city council during its Aug. 12 regular meeting. This meant getting senior leadership into a room together and going over foundational documents that Puffalt brought with him when he arrived last year. He pointed out after a year, it was time to dust off the documents and ensure they were meeting the goals and objectives city administration wanted to accomplish. It was also important to drive these objectives down to the rest of the organization. “Sometimes edicts from on high are not 100-per-cent well accepted,” he said, so it’s important to get the day-to-day decision-makers into one room where discussions can happen about enhancing service. “We don’t profess to be perfect at everything. There is room for improvement and we’re trying to get there,” Puf-
falt added. The accountability workshops were listed in Puffalt’s city manager report, contained with a larger report presented to council about the activities of all departments during the second quarter of 2019. Puffalt noted in his report that city administration had a 98-per-cent response rate in acknowledging council inquiries that were received within 48 hours. In turn, there was a 90-per-cent response rate in providing answers to those inquiries within 48 hours. “As our important customers, we need to get answers to people and not let them think that we’ve forgotten,” he said. Sometimes councillors’ questions are detailed and a quick response is not possible, Puffalt continued. Summer is also a poor time to have every department manager meet in a room to acquire those answers. Emails can only go so far, so he believes having face-to-face meetings with supervisors to go over the questions is important. City administration also wants to ensure the objectives council has set are being met, while ensuring the entire team is behind council’s direction and what it wants to accomplish, he added. That is why a workshop on accountability was needed. Council’s strategic plan should be coming out in Septem-
ber, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. He wondered if city hall staff and administration would be part of that plan since he thought that was part of accountability and understanding the community’s vision. “It’s absolutely critical to have the directors (and) senior leadership team following up on the strategic plans or meeting the objective that council has set,” Puffalt replied. “We’re trying to make sure that the organization is ready to move and meet the objectives.” Safety statistics There were 15 reported injuries among municipal staff during the second quarter of 2019, compared to 37 during the same time last year, according to Puffalt’s report. The main cause was overexertion. Five incidents of medical aid were needed — compared to 11 in 2018 — due to staff being struck by or against an object, falling or overexertion. One lost-time incident was reported — versus two last year — due to an employee tripping and falling. Three days were lost due to injuries, compared to five last year. There were 18 motor-vehicle incidents in the second quarter, compared to 15 during the same time last year, due to backing up and inattention among municipal staff drivers. The next regular council meeting is Monday, Aug. 26.
No penalties given yet for false alarms that attract firefighters Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw Fire Department has the ability to lay fines against property owners when responding to false alarms, based on recently updated municipal bylaws, but no one has been penalized yet. The department responded to 84 false alarms during the second quarter of this year in town and in the rural areas, compared to 85 during the first quarter, for a total of 169 false alarms during the first half of 2019, according to a second-quarter report presented during city council’s Aug. 12 regular meeting. Council voted 6-1 to receive the report; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. In comparison, there were 86 false alarms during the second quarter last year and 68 during the same time period two years ago. The fire department has not penalized anyone yet since it is working with property owners to cut down on the number of calls, Fire Chief Rod Montgomery told Coun. Scott McMann. Some people simply need to move equipment away from their homes or buildings to ensure false alarms stop happening.
Changing the bylaw was not meant to make it more difficult for property owners to comply with the rules, Montgomery added. Swanson expressed concern that none of the categories presented were separated into those that affected Moose Jaw and those that affected the rural areas. He suggested future reports should be divided so council knows what happens in Moose Jaw. “That’s certainly why we’re working with the province right now, is to have a better process to identify what these calls are,” said Montgomery. “Even I look at it and think that to have those lines of separation would be beneficial.” The department does respond to calls about picking up needles and keeps track of how many times it answers such calls, Montgomery told Coun. Chris Warren. Most of the department’s hazmat calls are for needle pickups. “It’s certainly become an issue the last four to five years; we’ve seen an increase,” he said. “Other communities are starting to look for solutions (to this prob-
lem).” When the health authority hands out needles on Tuesday, the fire department knows it will receive calls on Wednesday for pickup, Montgomery continued. If 10 needles are handed out, not all of them will be returned. New contract The long-awaited Fire Association Interest Arbitration Award was issued on April 26, which provided retroactive payments starting from Jan. 1, 2015, with an overall increase of 13 per cent divided up over six time periods. Total retroactive back pay was $1,841,811.05, while pension retroactive back pay was $135,345.75, said Montgomery. This means a first-class firefighter now makes $99,252, up from $85,764 five years ago. Montgomery added that the arbitration award expired last December, so the union will be going back to the negotiating table. Three-year second-quarter comparison Numbers for the second quarter in 2019, 2018 and 2017 show:
• False alarms: 84/86/68 • Fire (structure, vehicle, grass, rubbish, etc.): 50/41/47 • First responder EMS: 22/15/8 • Hazmat: 38/38/31 • Malfunctioning equipment: 16/3/2 • Motor-vehicle collision: 30/27/35 • Carbon Monoxide, other: 0/0/5 • Rescue: 4/1/5 • Service calls: 6/5/5 Fire loss stats The fire department battled fires in Moose Jaw during the second quarter that affected $42.43 million worth of property. More than $42.41 million was saved while $25,300 in property was lost. There were no reports of losses in rural areas. In comparison, the fire department battled fires worth more than $8.2 million during the second quarter of last year, resulting in more than $8.1 million in structures being saved and $132,601 structures being lost, both in town and in the rural areas. The next regular council meeting is Monday, Aug. 26.

City Hall Council Notes
Appeals board allows residents to alter properties despite bylaw conditions Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
The Development Appeals Board has approved the application requests from five residents to alter their properties even though their requests contravened the municipality’s zoning bylaw. The board met on July 16 to review the applications of Grant Schneider, Greg R. Fysh, Randy and Debra Hahn and Trisha German, and Jarrod Jones. After giving its approval to the requests, the board submitted its report to the Aug. 12 regular council meeting. Council approved a motion during the meeting to receive and file the report. Schneider, on 33 Bluebell Crescent, wanted to build a storage shed on the northwest corner of his backyard. It had floor space of 125.6 square metres (1,352 square feet), which is contrary to the 83.61 square metres (900 square feet) prescribed in the zoning bylaw. The appeals board ruled that a variance of the bylaw would be allowed since the lot was big enough to hold the building; the relaxation did not impede the intent of the bylaw; and the variance would not affect neighbouring properties. Fysh, on 138 Hochelaga Street East, wanted to construct a building with a combined floor space area of 101.45 square metres (1,092 square feet), which is
contrary to the 83.61 square metres (900 square feet) in the zoning bylaw. The appeals board ruled that a variance of the bylaw would be allowed since the size and location of the lot is acceptable and it is considered a through-site, as it abuts Hochelaga Street East and Caribou Street East; the variance would not impede the intent of the bylaw; and the variance would not affect neighbouring properties. The Hahns and German wanted to construct a residential fence at 605 and 607 Fourth Avenue Northwest. The fence would be two metres (6.5 feet) high, which is greater than the maximum height of one metre (3.3 feet) in height, as per the zoning bylaw. The appeals board ruled the variance would be approved due to the orientation of the house on the lot; the intent of the bylaw would not be impeded by the request; and the variance would not affect neighbouring properties. Jones wanted to construct a residential fence at 1 Flax Road. The fence would be 1.8 metres (six feet) high, which is greater than the maximum height of one metre (3.3 feet) in height, as per the zoning bylaw. The appeals board ruled the variance would be ap-
proved due to the orientation of the house on the lot; the intent of the bylaw would not be impeded; and the variance would not affect neighbouring properties. Future appeals Three property owners have submitted applications to the appeals board requesting a variance under the zoning bylaw. Sam Shaw with C&S Builders wants to construct an accessory building at 459 Lillooet Street West that has a floor space of 179 square metres (1,927 square feet), contrary to the 83.6 square metres (900 square feet) in the zoning bylaw. Patricia Watling wants to construct a front porch at 1122 – Seventh Avenue Northwest. The front yard setback would be 4.57 metres (15 feet), which is contrary to the minimum required setback of 7.5 metres (24.6 feet) in the zoning bylaw. Jay Fellinger wants to construct a detached garage at 1110 Simcoe Street, which would have a height from grade to peak of 5.73 metres (18.8 feet), contrary to the maximum height of 4.5 metres (14.76 feet) in the zoning bylaw. The meeting with the appeals board is Wednesday, Aug. 28.

Seventh impaired driving charge leads to 15 monthsâ€™ jail for motorist Seven is supposed to be a lucky number, but for Dennis Rust, picking up his seventh impaired driving charge has landed him in jail. In Moose Jaw provincial court on Aug. 12, Judge Brian Henderickson sentenced Rust, 56, from Davidson to 15 months in jail, followed by a driving ban of five years and the cancellation of his licence. Rust had pleaded guilty to having a blood alcohol content (BAC) over the legal limit of .08 during a previous court appearance; the Crown stayed the charge of impaired driving. He was back in court to hear Hendericksonâ€™s decision and rationale for jail. Rustâ€™s seventh arrest for impaired driving occurred on March 30, after he was spotted driving into Davidson from Highway 44,

Rust did not say anything as the judge spoke. Henderickson then said 15 months in jail is appropriate, along with a five-year driving ban after his imprisonment is finished. However, Rust will have to apply on his own to get into the impaired driver treatment centre. Moose Jaw provincial court next sits on Aug. 14.
Accused in â€˜sextortionâ€™ case to learn fate in September Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Saskatoon resident Layne Antosh will find out in September what his jail sentence will be for attempting to sexually extort a Moose Jaw woman by leaking photos of her online. Antosh appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court on Aug. 12, where the Crown and defence made their submissions on the length of sentence Antosh, from Davidson, should receive. He also pleaded guilty to extortion, the unsafe storage of a firearm and possessing an illegal substance of crystal meth. The Crown stayed a charge of breaching his probation. Judge Brian Henderickson will return to court on Wednesday, Sept. 4 with his decision. Antosh, 36, has a limited criminal history; he was charged in Saskatoon in March with mischief, possession of drugs and assault, which led to a conditional discharge and six months of probation, explained Crown prosecutor Rob Parker. Case background The charges laid against Antosh in Moose Jaw occurred this spring when his victim â€” whose name canâ€™t be reported due to a publication ban â€” went to Moose Jaw police on May 13 to say she was being extorted, said Parker. She told police she received text messages on May 12 asking her to perform work-related services. However, she was then unsure it was Antosh since it was an unknown phone number. When the woman replied to the messages, the conversation took a nasty turn since Antosh began sending her nude photos of herself and requested that she meet him, Parker continued. Antosh said if she did not meet him and perform sexual acts â€” specifically, anal intercourse â€” he would release the photos. However, he would delete the photos if she agreed to his demands. Antosh also attempted to extort her out of $300. â€œThe text messages are extremely graphic,â€? Parker said. He then submitted as evidence an inch-thick printout of every text message sent between Antosh and the woman. Four years before, the woman and her spouse had gone through a separation, so she went online to use an adult web service, the Crown prosecutor explained. She interacted with Antosh and voluntarily sent him nude pictures of herself. After going to police, a sting operation was set up to catch Antosh, Parker explained. The woman agreed to meet An-

tosh on May 21, but when he arrived at the location, police greeted him instead. In his possession was a bottle of alcohol. During a search of his car police found a handgun and 4.8 grams of methamphetamine. Parker noted there is no evidence Antosh intended to use the weapon. Addictions issues Antoshâ€™s defence lawyer explained that his client has dealt with addictions issues during the last couple of years. He is divorced and was looking for ways to cope; this included using drugs. He took steps to deal with his addiction but fell back into his habit after leaving rehab in 2018. It was while he was binging on crystal meth that he reached out to the woman with the intention of extorting $300. â€œHe does understand how wrong this is â€Ś . He is remorseful,â€? the defence lawyer said, adding Antosh has been co-operative with police. Sexual extortion Parker presented the womanâ€™s victim impact statement, noting she was afraid to file a statement since it could become public once presented in court. â€œThis is an extremely serious case of extortion â€Ś ,â€? Parker said. â€œThis is someone who wants to commit a sexual act, in an extremely violent and degrading manner.â€? He pointed out the term â€œsextortionâ€? is sometimes used in these cases, since they involve the internet and charges of luring or even sexual assault. The Crown prosecutor
pointed out Antosh had a phone app that masked his cellphone number, which could be considered deception. Past case law Parker presented two previous court cases to show what an appropriate sentence should be. He noted for similar extortion charges, a range of 18 to 24 months in jail is appropriate. His position was Antosh should face 18 months of jail, while being given credit for the 88 days he had already spent in custody. Antosh should have to forfeit his handgun, phone, and photos of the victim. He should also have to submit his DNA; be put on probation for two years afterward; have no contact with the victim; have no contact with her family; and not seek her out on social media or the internet. Antoshâ€™s defence lawyer presented his own case law examples, noting one year in jail for extortion was appropriate even with a sexual component involved. Another court case said nine months was appropriate for releasing intimate images of someone. Given Antoshâ€™s history with addictions, an appropriate sentence would be 10 months in jail and 18 months on probation afterward, the lawyer added. Since Antosh has been in custody for 88 days, with credit applied, that equals 132 days. â€œDespite the seriousness of the offences, he is usually on the right side of the law,â€? the defence lawyer added. â€œHe does see things differently (now).â€?

It seems that I may be picking on the city unfairly, but not without concern for what’s going on at City Hall, but sometimes they pleasantly surprise me. I’m not a smoker or toker Rob Ritchie and do not have issue with people who do, but I certainly appreciated the new ammended smoking bylaw that is now in effect. The 10m buffer zone of entrances, no smoking on outdoor seating of restaurants and bars and no smoking in all City-owned outdoor spaces seems to be a move in the right direction, although if there was just a little respect between smokers and non-smokers, probably none of this would have had to become a bylaw. But in my opinion, they missed adding another line to the bylaw, stating it should be illegal for the mayor and council to stop blowing smoke up each others’ butts. I watched the August 13th council meeting, not sure why I inflict this on myself, only to watch the mayor and city manager work what appeared to be a very much rehearsed skit… Did anyone ever vet this new city manager? There seems to be a few questions surrounding his tenures in Estevan and North Battleford that we found may be worth exploring further. For me, the highlight of the meeting, and you’re going to have to dumb down on this one folks, was the question from councillor Chris Warren asking if the ‘moveable’ fence was indeed moveable? That was really funny to me. On another beef brought forth by one of our readers was the parking meters downtown. The question is: ‘Why are the meters so expensive on Main Street? I thought they wanted to build up and encourage people to shop downtown?’ So here is what I found out after a short walk and a little research. Meters on Main Street are .10 cents for 3 minutes; not much you can do in 3 minutes, so lets call it $2.00 for one hour…and a ticket will NOW cost you $20.*, only up 100% from a month ago. Seems the only economic plan is to beat the people into submission. Regardless, there seems to be ample parking. Now turn off Main Street and its a win; for .10 cents, you get 6 minutes, or 2 hours for $2.00 but the parking is pretty full. Finally, go to the NEW Pay parking stall on Fairford Street, and notably will you find lots of parking; you’ll need a guide book to figure our how that machine works, but now you can use your credit card for and get that 2 hours for $2.00, but oddly the parking lot is generally pretty empty.
I am not sure if increasing the parking meter price downtown was the economic plan of the city council, but here are a few facts. Year Actual Receipts
2018 2017* 2016 2015* 2014
169,862 217,032 246,739 273,719 270,010

* year of parking rate increase
So here’s the thing. It seems this isn’t working, but budgets are budgets. They will be spent and then it seems a new one obtained at the same or higher rate. The big plan seems to make more money off meters, but that’s the nuts of it all. It rather seems to be hurting city coffers, and especially the businesses they should be helping downtown. So here are some other questions we hope to find answers to in the near future… • How is is that Canadian Tire can retain a huge parcel of land with no money down on land that was never listed for sale, that no one else had the chance to bid on for almost 4 years? • How much of a non-refundable deposit did the City get from Carpere? …and again with some of the same questions as above. • Why has Moose Jaw’s population been so stagnant for the past 40 years, while other communities seem to be growing? • Is SNIP’s entrepreneur program killing Moose Jaw and other small towns and are there large loop holes in this program? • How much laundered money has this town seen in the last 2 years and how far up the trough does it go? • What is the tender process and does this need to be changed to protect and support local businesses? • Who authorizes wages increases to the mayor and councillors? As you can see, there are many questions and many concerns from citizens who care about our city and this sure leaves a lot of work for a weekly paper to handle, but with your help, we will get there, one question and one answer at a time. *A parking ticket fine is $50., if you received one on August 15th and pay it by September 1st, you would pay $20., if you paid it by October 1st, your fine would be $30., after that it would be $50.
Fines for parking tickets increase to $20 to provide more deterrence Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Get ready to dig deeper into your pocket if you fail to obey the parking bylaws, as the penalty for acquiring a parking ticket has increased to $20 from $10. The increase to the voluntary payment option was approved by city council as part of the 2019 budget and incorporated recently into the City of Moose Jaw’s amended traffic bylaw. The full details on the payment structure for parking violations can be found on the city’s website, at moosejaw.ca, on page 41 in Schedule G of the traffic bylaw. It has been a long time since fines for parking violations were increased, Sgt. Kevin Pilsworth with the Moose Jaw Police Service explained on Aug. 16. Compared to the rest of Saskatchewan
and Western Canada, Moose Jaw’s financial penalties for parking violations are “not on the high side.” Even looking at what the fines are in Saskatchewan — or just in Regina and Saskatoon — should make people realize Moose Jaw is still below the average, he continued. Regina’s parking fines start at $30 and increase to $65 after 14 days, while Saskatoon’s start at $30 and increase to $50 after 14 days. Moose Jaw’s fines now start at $20 and increase to $50 for most violations after 14 days. “What people would probably like to understand is, how are fines set (and) why are they that amount. And it’s like any other fine: if it’s too low, then it
doesn’t act as a deterrent,” Pilsworth said. “Ten dollars … was a little on the low side to act as a deterrent.” This is not a cash grab by the municipality, he stressed. Similar to any other fine — whether it’s for a moving violation, a Traffic Safety Act violation, or something under the municipal bylaw — there needs to be a deterrent. The police service was recently made aware of the adjustment to the penalty, which went into effect on Aug. 14, said Pilsworth. The service anticipated the adjustment but didn’t know how much the increase would be or the exact date. “It was not a surprise to our police service,” he added. Anyone who parks illegally or chooses
to disobey the Traffic Bylaw will be affected by the change since they will be ticketed. For motorists with the proper placards, such as veterans or seniors, they will be entitled to park in the designated zones. Pilsworth reminded residents that city hall is the only place to pay fines and other tickets. The police station is no longer accepting payments and has not done so in a while. Violators can pay their fines in person at city hall at 228 Main Street North, or online with the “Pay Parking Tickets Online” button at the top of the home page of www.moosejaw.ca.

Femsport pledging support of women’s breast health Larissa Kurz
For yet another year, the ladies of Femsport are going to be showing off their impressive athletics at their annual competition here in Moose Jaw, proving again that there’s nothing quite like girl power. The competition this year will take over Cordova St. on Aug. 24 and will feature a number of categories: kettlebell lifts, tire flip, an obstacle medley, car push, and more. Each event will see competitors put their hard work to the test, muscling through each event throughout the day. Spectators are more than welcome, as nothing feels better than a crowd cheering for your success, and organizers hope to see some charitableness to go along with the enthusiasm. This year, the event will be urging donations to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s Mammography Matters campaign, who will have a booth at the competition and will be raffling off an Apple Watch donated by two local businesses. The event itself is hosted by Main Street Strength and Conditioning, although it owes its connection to the Health Foundation’s fundraising project to one local member who feels strongly about this year’s campaign. Sherry Robart approached the MJHF to be the title cause at Femsport Moose Jaw this year, as she is a breast cancer survivor and can speak to the good that the Mammography Matters campaign will do for the community. After a double mastectomy in 2018 and completing a

Spartan Race, Robart decided to join Lisa McLeod and Shauna Anderson on their Femsport team, the Rack Pack, to take part in her first Femsport event. “Knowing [Femsport] was a fairly big challenge for me, I thought that if I’m going to do this to myself,
Moose Jaw wrestlers medal to close out Western Canada Summer Games
somebody might as well benefit out of this,” said Robart. “So I started thinking about doing some sort of fundraising to go with it.” Robart has been affected by breast cancer for a large portion of her life — her mother was diagnosed and was a 38-year survivor — and immediately took note of the Mammography Matters campaign because early detection is so important for cancer success stories. “[My mom is] a true cancer survivor and I’ve always been very proud of her. And now that I’ve gone through the journey, I really would like to avoid as many other women going through it that can,” said Robart. She is looking forward to competing, and hopes to see everyone having a good time while raising money for a good cause. Kelly McElree, executive director at the MJHF, is honoured to have the support of Femsport for their campaign. McElree estimates the Mammography Matters campaign has raised about 40 per cent of its ultimate goal of $375,000 so far, and said every donation is greatly appreciated in the quest to bring updated mammography technology to Moose Jaw. The event itself is entirely admission-free and will start at 10:30 a.m. Femsport and the MJHF invite everyone to come down and take in some impressive exhibits of strength, agility, and determination, and to consider supporting the Mammography Matters campaign.

Bradish wins gold, Kell silver, Yamniuk bronze as Canada Summer Games come to an end. Moose Jaw Kinsmen Wrestling Club competitor Alexis Bradish hasn’t been at the sport very long, but to say she’s accomplished a lot in her short time on the mats is a bit of an understatement. The Central Cyclones standout and reigning provincial champion continued her impressive debut season in the sport, first with a silver medal in the team dual meet competition before claiming gold in the women’s 65-kg division on Sunday. Bradish qualified directly for the final in her individual weight class after posting a 4-1 record that included an 8-0 decision win over Manitoba’s Arianda Agoroff to close out the dual competition Sunday. Interestingly enough, Bradish’s opponent in the single’s championship match, Judith Russell of Yukon Territory, was her only loss in the duals. Revenge was sweet, as Bradish needed only 2:17 to record the fall and take first place. Kell also put together a 4-1 record in his 39-to-42-kg division but was unable to get his own measure of revenge, as he lost by technical fall to Manitoba’s Ebraheim Aldrar in the gold medal match. Kyle Yamniuk’s bad luck in the duals saw him finish with a 3-2 record after a pair of close decision losses, seeding him in the bronze medal match against Northwest Territories’ Quinn Critch. There, Yamniuk picked up a similar result to his victory over Critch in the duals, winning by pinfall in 1:42 to secure his medal. All three local competitors also won silver in the dual meets, with Alberta going undefeated to claim gold in both events. **** Team Saskatchewan ended up closing out their home-province Western Canada Summer Games in Swift Current in second place in both the medal standings and Games points. In total, Team Sask recorded 56 gold medals, 80 silver and 77 bronze for 213 total medals. Alberta posted a commanding win in the medal total with 56 gold, 80 silver and 77 bronze for 299 medals; Manitoba was third with 49 gold, 59 silver and 171 total. Saskatchewan also saw an improvement in Game points over the preview WCSG in Wood Buffalo, Alta. in 2015, recording 164 points to finish two ahead of Manitoba. Alberta also finished first there with 187 points.

Moore, Leduc preparing for 3D Archery World Championships Local competitors to represent Canada in barebow at worlds in Lac La Biche, Alta. Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
Tyler Moore and Heather Leduc are hoping being a little closer to home will make for career-best results when they represent Canada at the World 3D Archery Championships in Lac La Biche, Alta. at the beginning of September. The Thunder Creek Archery Club standouts were recently confirmed as national team competitors after putting together top-three finishes at the Canadian championships Aug. 2-4 in Prince Albert. “We’re on our own home ground, so they’re targets that we’re used to shooting,” said Moore, who with Leduc will be making their second appearance at worlds. “It’s a little different than going around and seeing the targets the first time and having to experience a whole world championship for the first time. We have a better idea of what it’s going to be like and hopefully that helps out.” Moore is coming off a third-place finish in the men’s barebow at nationals, where he shot 652 through the four rounds of targets including a high of 180 in his third round of shots. Leduc finished second in women’s barebow with a 490 total and high of 142 in

ple strings, pulleys, cams, sites and balance devices seen on compound bows. “It’s all hand-eye co-ordination… you have to be able to look at the target and know the distance to the target,” Leduc explained of the difference shooting a barebow. “Then you have to be able to calculate the distance and get down on the string where you have to be to shoot that distance and make the arrow go exactly to the point where your eye is on the target, without the aid of sites or magnifiers and any other equipment.” That focus on shot precision is one of the aspects that has barebow becoming one of the fastest growing 3D disciplines in the world. “You have to be right in the zone and thinking about the shot process, you can’t be thinking about ‘oh what I’m going to score’, you have to trust the process and be as precise as possible,” Moore added. A total of 28 countries and over 300
athletes will be competing in Lac La Biche, with qualifying rounds beginning Monday, Sept. 2 and running through Wednesday, Sept. 4 before elimination matches begin that Thursday. The championship finals are Saturday, Sept. 7. The event will mark the second trip to worlds for both competitors following an appearance in Robion, France in 2017. There Moore finished 35th in the instinctive division – an even stricter class that requires further stripped-down single-piece recurve bows compared to barebow. Leduc landed 26th overall in the longbow class, which goes further still in a traditional direction and doesn’t allow recurve bows. This time around, the goal is a top 22 finish through qualification to reach the elimination rounds, with the duo hoping that being closer to home than France this time around will make a difference. “When we went to Europe, there’s jetlag and getting accustomed to food and things like that,” Leduc said. “And this time around, Team Canada has their own practice range, where if we wanted to practice in France we’d have 200 to 300 archers at a time,” added Moore. “So you’re trying to work on something and trying to get on to the shooting line. You could do it, but it was tough. This time there will be 24 Canadians and that’s going to make a big difference in practice and preparation time.” In order to offset costs of representing Canada and Moose Jaw at a world championship, the Thunder Creek Archery Club is holding a steak night at the Crushed Can Sports Bar and Night Club on Thursday, Aug. 22. The event will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will feature an eight-ounce steak dinner. Tickets are $20 each.

AAA Warriors kick-off season with training camp
Impressive showings abound as new coaching staff gets first look at 2019-20 squad Randy Palmer -Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw AAA Warriors officially kicked off a new era for the local Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League squad this past weekend with their annual training camp. The event offered new head coach Trevor Weisgerber and his staff their first chance to see their potential new charges in onice action – the team held sessions at Mosaic Place all day Saturday before their Black-White Intrasquad game on Sunday afternoon – and the word is especially positive in the early going. “It was good, we saw what we wanted to this weekend,” Weisgerber said. “We had some spots up front that we needed to fill and we still have some guys we’re going to keep around for the exhibition games before making a final decision moving forward. So all in all it was a competitive camp and we liked what we saw.” The AAA camp is traditionally held in mid-August in order to give players a chance to show their stuff before heading out to try-out with their respective Western Hockey League and Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League squads. That includes the likes of Cody Davis, one of the squad’s returning veterans who put together an impressive performance during the intrasquad game, scoring twice and adding an assist as Team White picked up a come-from-behind 5-4 victory. “It was just go out there, have a good time with the guys, experience some new plays and have some fun… it was a good camp, really well organized, everything was ready to go,” said Davis, who led the then-Moose Jaw Generals in goals with 27 last year. “It was a lot of fun.” It’s likely the 17-year-old has played his last game for the Warriors, as the highly touted SJHL prospect will almost certainly crack the Estevan Bruins line-up – something that’s all fine and well with Weisgerber. “That’s what we’re here for, we’re just a
Action from the Moose Jaw AAA Warriors intrasquad game on Sunday afternoon stepping stone for these guys,” he said. “They want to move on and play junior and we totally understand that. With a guy like Cody, he’s a heck of a player, and if things did change we would definitely be happy to have him back” The general look of the Warriors is that of a very young team, with only a handful of 2002-born players expected to return from last season’s squad that posted a 1724-2-1 record and missed the playoffs. “We have a lot of 03s that are going to step up and are going to need to step up for us to be successful this year,’ Weisgerber said. “There were a bunch who looked good this weekend and as the season goes on we’re going to be relying on them heavily to be the guys for us… Then if we get a few 02s back from junior camps, we’re going to have to rely on those guys to help those guys out and be major contributors for us.” One thing that is certain is the team will have a healthy Moose Jaw contingent in its line-up after a host of standouts from the Prairie Hockey Academy Elite 15 and Midget Varsity clubs took the ice over
the weekend – with the possibility of as many as a half-dozen or more Moose Jaw players cracking the squad. “We’re going to have a good group of
hometown kids here who are going to be productive and we’ll be looking to have good years,” Weisgerber said. The Warriors will be back on the ice for practices on Sept. 3, with their first exhibition game slated for Sept. 7 at Mosaic Place against the Swift Current Legionnaires. Overtime… Team White had a goal and two assists from Atley Calvert in the intra-squad game, while Kyle Forster and Connor Ruckaber added single markers… Caelan Fitzpatrick, Steven Kesslering, McKale Paul and Evan Callaghan all scored for Black… Dylan Ernst made 24 saves for White in his half game of work in goal, Mason Briske turned aside 18… Chase Coward had 10 stops for Black, Jayden Watterson turned aside 11… Black led 4-1 early in the second before White scored three goals in five minutes to tie the game and Davis added the game winner with 7:08 remaining in the frame.

American consumers maintain trends in meat buying practices By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
Convenience and health interests conEXPRESS tinue to underpin trends in the American retail meat industry, according to the annual Power of Meat trends study. Meal kits introduce consumers to new meat cuts and kinds of meat with 40 per cent having purchased meal kits in the past year. Quality of the meat matters a lot in the decision to buy again. Seventy-one per cent agree that meal kits encourage them to try new meat and poultry items. Convenience-focused meat and poultry saw robust growth in 2018, including value added, 5.1 per cent growth; fully cooked, 2.5 per cent; and frozen, 2.2 per cent. Plant-based meat alternatives are a small but fast-growing market with higher interest in blended plant/meat items. Three-quarters of meat eaters integrate plant-based meat alternatives into their dinner line-up. This segment rings up $878 million in annual sales, up 19 per cent, with sales driven by Generation Z and millennials. Blended plant/meat items, such as mushroom burgers, have a higher and greater cross-population appeal, and can be a bridge to the attributes consumers look for, while keeping meat on the plate. Online grocery shopping grows but online meat purchases lag behind. Thirty-nine per cent of grocery shoppers supplement store visits with online buys with 45 per cent of online shoppers expecting to buy more online. One per cent of shoppers use online as their primary source of groceries. Only 21 per cent have purchased meat or poultry online. Two-thirds of shoppers look for healthy options in their meat and poultry. Traits they seek include lean cuts and protein variety. Three of every 10 shoppers look for claims about the animal and the planet with younger buyers taking keener interest in these claims. Fifty-four per cent of shoppers want to see more grassfed beef in stores with 52 per cent wanting more natural beef and beef free from hormones and antibiotics. Print ad promotions account for 51 per cent of consumers checking for meat and poultry promotions. The annual Power of Meat consumer analysis is compiled by food institutes in the United States.

Rain hobbles fast progress on Saskatchewan harvest By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
Rain delayed the first 12 days of harvest in August with Saskatchewan farmers swathing a mere one per cent and combining less than one per cent of the crop. EXPRESS The harvest is quite a way behind the five year average of four per cent combined and five per cent swathed, according to the Saskatchewan Agriculture weekly crop report. One per cent of lentils and three per cent of peas were harvested. One-sixth of winter wheat and one-fifth of all rye had been harvested Rain in this region ranged from a trace to 3.5 inches at Pense, two inches at Briercrest, 2.5 at Limerick and almost two inches at Eyebrow. An area southwest of Moose Jaw has received the most rain in the province since April – nearly 14 inches. Cropland topsoil moisture conditions across the province are good with three per cent surplus, 78 per cent adequate, and two per cent short. Southeast cropland is even better with 13 per cent surplus, 83 per cent adequate three per cent short and one per cent very short. Southwest cropland is drier with 15 per cent short and three per cent very short. Pasture and hay land moisture in the province is one per cent surplus, 84 per cent adequate, 25 per cent short and two per cent very short. Below normal hay yields range from .9 tonnes an acre on alfalfa to one tonne an acre on alfalfa brome. .7 tonnes on prairie hay to 1.8 tonnes for green feed. Irrigated hay yields range from 2.4 tonnes for alfalfa to 3.2 tonnes for green feed.
The reality of Canada 2019 – 2020 As Canadians, this might be of interest to those who may want to know where our money is spent here in Canada. The information received on the internet was factchecked and is accurate. The reality of Canada as we enter 2019 – 2020. Canada, as we know it, will never survive another Trudeau Liberal Government. Here is a short list to remind Canada why we should have never elected a ‘cute’ rich kid who has never really worked in his life: • At the G7 he pledged $400 Million to Education around the world along with another $180 Million to the Global Partnership for Education in Europe. None of it is going to fix our messed-up school systems here at home. Meanwhile education costs are skyrocketing for our students making University and College a - mountain too high for many to climb. • He pledged $241 Million to Family Planning around the world including a $20 Million donation to the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation (‘cause they have - integrity!). This all happened while he told Vets that they were asking for too much. • He pledged $2.65 Billion to climate change at the Commonwealth Leaders Summit and now he is trying to bully the provinces into new taxes to pay for this pledge • He pledged $300 Million to the Rohingya Refugee crisis while we have a refugee crisis of our own flooding into the provinces that he won’t address. • He pledged $125 Million to Caribbean Reconstruction while our own infrastructure in cities is falling apart. • He pledged $650 million to Sexual and Reproductive health in Haiti and around the globe wanting safer abortions for women, while many women in our own country - are left without a family doctor. • He has pledged $50 million to Palestine for flood relief when New Brunswick had some of the worst flooding in decades this past spring. • He pledged $840 million to Syria for Humanitarian
Assistance when half the native reserves in our country don’t have clean drinking water. • He gave $10.5 Million to a convicted...CONVICTED terrorist in a back-room deal that has led to another $30.8 Million paid out for three other terrorists who say - they were wrongfully detained.” • And most recently he spent $4.5 Billion on a pipeline that he is unwilling to get built. * Good investment for Canada he said. • Spent over 1.6 million dollars on a trip to India, but to be fair over $17,000 was spent on flying over a celebrity chef to prepare a meal for an official reception. • Spent over $215,000 on a Christmas vacation to the Bahamas to visit the Aga Khan THE ABOVE TOTALS OVER $10 BILLION DOLLARS...and none of it stays in our country. None. Excuse me...except the 4.5-Billion-dollar pipeline that cannot be built. (HIS NEWEST – IT WILL BE BUILT BUT NO DATE HAS BEEN GIVEN. Now, if he is re-elected you can bet it won’t be built…ever…not ever. This is just a vote buyer…and he is not done yet with Canada.) NOTE: On that last item? …....NOPE!! Not even that stays in Canada…The folks he paid, Kinder Morgan, are a huge American Company who were fed up with the screw-ups already foisted upon them by our stupid little spoiled brat rich kid selfie star drama teacher and were going to abandon the project. So the $4.5 billion has already gone south to the USA. His Government has now spent more than any other government at any time in history and this reckless spending has put EVERY Canadian in debt over $8600, remember it is your money he is spending. And he’s not done yet. He’s like the “Energizer Bunny”.... He keeps going and going. We all know he is not that bright, so it makes one wonder who is the puppeteer who is really manipulating the strings that bring this little weasel to life?

Shane Pollock September 5, 1950 ~ August 11, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the sudden passing of their father, brother, uncle and papa, Shane Aldric Pollock. Shane was born on September 5, 1950, in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan and grew up between there, the family ranch in British Columbia and Tenasket, Washington.

Shane met the love of his life, Nadine Gosnell on a blind date in Eastend, Saskatchewan and they were married on October 9, 1976. The two of them started their journey together in Maple Creek.

John (Jack) Mackenzie Paice (age 96) passed peacefully on Thursday, August 15, 2019 after a brief illness. Dad was pre-deceased by his beloved wife (Beth), and son (Howie), his father (Richard), mother (Mary), step-mother (Vera), brother (George), brother (Jim), and sister (Peggy). He is lovingly remembered by his surviving sons – Gord (Maureen) and Terry (Lynne), his daughter-in-law (Trudy), sister-in-law (Beatrice), sister-in-law (Donna), brother-in-law (Gordon), along with grandchildren Denise (Mike), Rod, Derick (Leita), Jason (Jolene), Tammy (Clay), Chris (Leah), Christina, Melissa, Megan (Marcus) and Jake (Carly), and their families. Dad will also be missed by his other relatives from the Paice, Shaw and Jones families. Dad was born in Whitewood, SK on December 14, 1922. He enlisted in the Army during WWII but was honorably discharged to work the family farm. He married his one true love, Beth Shaw, on October 28, 1944 and they began married life on the farm at Whitewood. In 1957, Dad and Mom took a huge leap of faith and moved their young family to Moose Jaw, SK. Dad worked as a carpenter for various companies until starting his own construction company in 1965. Dad and Mom were a tremendous team, building a successful business together and raising their 3 boys. Many houses and farm buildings in the Moose Jaw area serve as testament to his quality workmanship and unwavering work ethic. After Dad retired in 1984, he and Mom enjoyed travelling to exotic destinations throughout the world, and spent 9 winters in Lake Havasu, Arizona. Dad could sing and yodel and loved to dance. He also loved to play cribbage - playing regularly up until his passing. He and Mom cherished life-long friendships and family above all else. The family extends heartfelt thanks to Dad’s devoted friend and cribbage partner, Bill McCreary, as well as the special staff at West Park Crossing who cared for him with such affection and compassion. There will be no funeral service. Family and friends are invited to a Come-and-Go Tea on Friday, August 23, 2019 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Parkview Funeral Chapel (474 Hochelaga St W, Moose Jaw, SK). For those wishing, contributions to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan (2550 12 Ave, Regina, SK, S4P 3X1) would be appreciated. In living memory of Jack a memorial tree planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services.
