Harvest Banquet celebrates the joys of giving, looks to future Larissa Kurz

For the third year in a row, on September 25 and 26th Riverside Mission invited community members to enjoy a fourcourse meal orchestrated by Mission services manager Rachel Mullens and put together by volunteers, served by students from Vanier Collegiate. Following, the Mission then presented a short program to show what they do in the community, featuring voices of both volunteers and clients of the mission. Each person who took the stage offered a different perspective of how being involved in Riverside Mission has affected their lives, either through the daily meal program or one of the other support programs offered. The executive director of Souls Harbour Rescue Mission in Regina, Joe Miller, also took the stage to say a few words about the future of the organization, now that a merging of the two missions is underway. Miller noted there are big plans to relocate Riverside Mission and its services to a new facility, one yet to be built. The idea is to replace the two buildings currently operated by Riverside Mission, both of which are 100 years old and offer mainte-

Students from Vanier Collegiate served the tables the four-course meal, put together by volunteers from the Mission. nance challenges. “We’re hoping to start construction for that in the spring of 2021,� said Miller. The new building will house all of the amenities currently offered by Riverside Mission, including 22 affordable living suites, a restaurant, a retail store to provide work experience, and space for onsite services such as counseling or health

consulting. All of the lodging in the new facility will be available to men, women, and children, which will be a change from the Mission’s current state as a men’s shelter. “Our vision is really for a community centre,� said Miller. “It’s really much more than a new Riverside Mission. It’s a community centre where other people can

come together.� A new facility could open the organization up to potentially expanding services in the future. “[The new centre means] we can bring these resources together and be the hub for the community and the people who need those services,� said Miller. “Five years down the road, things can change as the needs change as well.� Riverside Mission’s annual operating budget is about $350,000, and the Harvest Banquet as a fundraiser can provide about 10 per cent of that budget. Those funds are put towards programming, building maintenance, paying staff — keeping the organization’s doors open. Any outside projects will need continued support from the community to make them possible, including the facility expansion. Miller is optimistic that the community will continue to give their help. “[Moose Jaw] has always rallied around the Mission and been able to help us raise the funds we need for the day-to-day operations,� said Miller. “I like to use the words, ‘love your neighbour like you love yourself,’ and I think the community does that very well.�

Riverside Mission shares storiesLarissa with community at annual banquet Kurz Three individuals took the stage at the annual Harvest Banquet to share how exactly they came to be involved with Riverside Mission — and how important it has been to them. The hope was that sharing a handful of stories could help people understand the breadth of services offered by the organization. Riverside Mission served around 13,000 meals last year, through their meal program, and provided 800 nights worth of lodging in the emergency men’s shelter suites. They also continued offering their addictions support program, use of their 11 affordable housing units, and collected clothing and other items for individuals in crisis — among other programs. They also welcomed over 100 volunteers last year, which equated to over 3,300 hours of volunteer time throughout the year.

The Mission works very hard to provide supports to those vulnerable in the community and by sharing some of those stories, people might better understand how important those supports are to some. Deana Struble, marketing manager at Souls Harbour Rescue Mission, offered the microphone to one volunteer and two clients in an interview-style conversation, prompting each individual to talk about themselves and how they are involved with the Mission. Laurie spoke about how she was looking for someplace where she could provide her services, to better her community. Serving meals at Riverside Mission is her way of doing just that. “I like serving people and seeing people with a smile on their face, as they come up to get their food, I enjoy that,� she said. “I know that I’ve been gifted with a lot of things . . . and there’s people who don’t

Thankfulness All Year Long MLA’s Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

For it is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful – David Steindl-Rast Happy Thanksgiving. Celebrating with family and friends and enjoying a long weekend can do much to renew and revitalize us; but research shows that developing a consistent “attitude of gratitude” can improve our lives in many ways; mentally, emotionally, and physically. Thanksgiving began to celebrate the end of a successful growing season. Recent rain and snow have certainly dampened optimism for a bountiful harvest. My thoughts and prayers are with our agriculture producers in a year where both drought and excessive moisture has challenged even the hardiest of farmers. I encourage them to call the confidential Farm Stress Line, 1-800-667-4442, for stress related help in facing those difficulties and for support. I am grateful to live in a province where people come together to assist others. Our province grew with communities coming together to help their neighbours when times were tough. Our government knows that the people of our province expect services and assistance to be there for those who need support. The recent grand opening of the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital is evidence of support for the vulnerable. Because many contributed to make this happen, the hospital will play an integral role in providing world-class excellence in health care for Saskatchewan’s children and expectant mothers.

Together with Inclusion Saskatchewan, the Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed October as Inclusion Month in our province. Inclusion Month is an opportunity to celebrate the positive difference inclusion has made in the lives of people with disabilities and the contributions people with disabilities make in their communities. For more than 60 years, Inclusion Saskatchewan, formerly the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living, has aimed to ensure people with intellectual disabilities are valued, supported and included, and have opportunities and choices in all aspects of life. It was a very significant day in September when the last residents of Valley View Centre officially moved out of the building, marking the end of institutionalized-style living for people with intellectual disabilities in Saskatchewan. Inclusion Saskatchewan has advocated for community-based living for the residents of Valley View Centre. Since the closure of Valley View Centre was announced in 2012, the Government of Saskatchewan, Inclusion Saskatchewan and the Valley View Legacy Network have worked together to ensure the success and well-being of residents as they move into communities of their choice. From around the world, many recognize that Saskatchewan is a great place to live, work, go to school and raise a family. This is evident in our population, which has grown by more than 183,000 in 53 consecutive quarters to 1,174,462. The people who recently immigrated to Saskatchewan appreciate the opportunity to live here and would have a long list of things for which people in our province can be grateful. Thanksgiving is an opportunity to recognize the quality of life we have and be grateful. This Thanksgiving weekend, I will especially thank God for my family. As always, I am grateful for the wonderful people of our province that have a heart for the needs of others. May gratefulness enrich your lives every day of the year.

Birthday Cake and Beer = RELATIONSHIP BUILDING!!! Dear Mayor. I wish you a Happy Belated Birthday. I hope you enjoyed the cake, which was a very small token of my appreciation for leading our City Council. Along with the Councillors and staff, who work diligently beside you, I hope you enjoyed some time together during the work day to celebrate. All the best.

A taxpayer of Moose Jaw. First of all, this letter is NOT to disrespect those who have an issue with the way the Mayor is spending taxpayer money. Being a member of a democratic society, I respect those who express their views. This letter is to strongly disagree with the views of those who are attempting to create negativity to how our city leader (and those who are working for him) choose to spend the taxpayer dollar, and more specifically, to the September 25th article on Page A22 in the Moose Jaw Express (by the way, I love reading this paper each week).

Joan Ritchie EDITOR

Many of us will be feasting with family and friends this coming Thanksgiving Day long weekend. It really is an opportunity to reflect on the good things we so freely enjoy in this country. Not everything in life is perfect; God knows, we’re not; circumstances are not always favourable; and sometimes it is easy to see fault and cast blame on others for what we feel is an injustice…but thankfulness is a heart attitude and in spite of our humanity, we can still be thankful. I’m not going to expound on a list of what I am thankful for; I will just ‘ditto” Joyce Walter’s Reflective Moments column this issue. Casting politics aside and not the individuals, federal, provincial and local, in all my thankfulness, I will say it’s people – family, friends, acquaintances, and community that are blessings. The social fabric of humanity weaves individuals together to make the most beautiful mosaic possible where we can get along, even if we agree to disagree. It’s not in what we do; it matters who we are…and we are God’s masterpiece, no matter what race, colour or size so putting all else aside, you’re ok and I’m ok. On another note of thanksgiving and the celebration of Ron and Joyce Walter’s 50th Wedding Anniversary this weekend, I would personally like to thank them for the ten years of service in journalism to this newspaper. They have been with the Moose Jaw Express since it’s inception and are seasoned in life and wisdom and well-able to relay this through their weekly writings. They are sincere, well-humoured and down-to-earth, with good character and well-received in this community. It is with thankfulness and appreciation for their service that we (me and everyone else at the Express) wish them,’Live Long and Prosper!’ The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

I was a teacher for 17 years (public sector) working FOR students to help each realize their potential. In the past decade I have been working as a Regional Manager (private sector) working FOR a sales staff of 20 to help each realize their potential. This is what I do. Without a doubt, my success is due to establishing authentic caring relationships with those I work beside and for. Each action I make is all for them. Those who remember the teachers who made the most impact on their life were the teachers who went “over and above” instructing the curriculum. Those who remember the bosses who made the most impact of their working career, are those who went “over and above” their title. I do agree there should be accountability for spending the public’s hard-earned money. History has proven this. I don’t agree with the accusations about the nickel and diming of what the Mayor’s credit card shows, especially when most examples written in last week’s article are about building relationships FOR our city. Let’s first look at the “couple of cups of Joe and a bottle of water for the drive to Regina….” Yes, MAYBE this $4 could have been on the Fraser Tolmie’s (the person) own tab. Again…$4.

All other expenses discussed in that article, in my opinion, are about relationship building FOR our city. Birthday Cake. My questions are: Why shouldn’t we as a city buy OUR MAYOR a $40 cake so he can feel appreciated and thought of…like all workplace cakes do? Why shouldn’t he be allowed to follow a tradition and cut the cake to share with his colleagues during the work day? Each time a staff gets together to celebrate, makes the staff stronger. (On a side note, while I do respect Councillor Swanson, I don’t agree with him not having a piece of cake if in fact that happened). Having a glass of wine. Like it or not, having a glass of spirit is an acceptable part of building a relationship. It doesn’t have to be…but it is. The Mayor and a colleague were building a relationship with Hon Donna Harpaurer MLA, while enjoying 1 glass of wine each. If they got wasted together on the taxpayer dollar…then we have an issue. “This is for the voter to decide”. Building a relationship with Investors of our city, while enjoying supper and drinks at one of our most beautiful properties, is good business and good for our city. That is one of the reasons we elect a Mayor…to help build our city and make it prosper. This is a small expense in a much bigger picture. Pay raise for Councillors- The Pay Cheque is not a reason to run for city leadership. But to make less than before because of a Revenue Canada change? In my opinion, it was acceptable to raise their salary so not to experience a loss. I support this to show that I value their work and time to help make this city an even better place to live. This is not necessarily a relationship builder, just the right thing to do. 20% Gratuity- While I think this is at the top of what an Official should leave as a gratuity, I was always instructed to tip based on what I would personally give. A civil servant on official business? Tipping our city’s restaurant servers and staff for a job well done is most definitely a relationship building gesture. (The Liquor Control Tax is out of our hands) Mayor Tolmie, Councillors and Staff. Please continue to work FOR us by building relationships to help the City of Moose Jaw realize it’s potential. Relationships are everything. Mark Gottseleig

Moose Fight Wins National Marketing Award A national marketing award related to promoting the “Moose War” with Norway at the annual Economic Development Association of Canada (EDAC) conference in the “Event” category was awarded to The City of Moose Jaw. The submission was called “Mac – the Six Million Dollar Moose.” Between January 11th to March 6th of this year, spurred on by Regina-based social media stars Justin and Greg who challenged Moose Jaw to help Mac the Moose reclaim the title of “World’s Largest Moose Statue” from Stor-Elvdal, Norway, the friendly fight spurred on international media coverage. “This award truly belongs to our community,” the mayor of Moose Jaw said in a city press release. “Without our city rallying behind Mac, the rest of the world would not have paid near as much attention. We are proud of the community partnerships that were strengthened throughout the two months of intense, and very fun, media coverage. We can’t wait for Mac to reclaim his title of ‘World’s Largest Moose Statue.’ To view the video that comprised part of the City’s EDAC submission, click here: Mac the Moose with his old antlers earlier this spring. com/watch?v=1kLY00czBZ8&t=19s

Transition House thankfulJason forG. Antonio donation from Co-op’s Fuel Good Day - Moose Jaw Express Moose Jaw Transition House will receive all the funds raised from this year’s Moose Jaw Co-op Fuel Good Day, with that money going to support the non-profit organization’s programs for girls. The Fuel Good Day raised $12,006 on Sept. 17, which is higher than last year’s total, when just under $11,000 was raised. Ten cents from every litre sold went into the fund — most of the money came from gasoline sold — while further dollars came from cookie sales and other cash donations. “This is amazing for us,” said Jenn Angus, executive director of Transition House. “Twelve-thousand dollars means a lot to our organization.” Everything the shelter does is connected to abuse and violence, which is why its outreach is important, she continued. Therefore, it wants to take a strong position toward violence prevention against young women. This is why the money from its Fuel Good Day will go toward a leadership program for young girls and women. Girls not having a strong self-image can be connected to domestic violence, she

Employees from Moose Jaw EMS do their best to pump up drivers and encourage them to support the Co-op’s Fuel Good Day, as all funds raised went to Transition House. Photo courtesy Jenn Angus explained. They might not have many opportunities to learn, grow and develop into strong women. This is where the leadership program will provide that knowledge. Transition House intends to start its girls’ leadership program soon. The organization will hold a large event on Thursday, Oct. 10 to celebrate International Day of the Girl. The leadership program then begins Friday, Nov. 1, and finished in March when the Prism Awards are handed out. The shelter wants to take the girls to the awards gala to show them female community leaders being recognized. Angus added that Transition House appreciated how Moose Jaw Co-op chose the organization as this year’s recipient of its Fuel Good Day funding. Last year Moose Jaw Co-op chose Moose Jaw Families for Change as its charity of choice for its Fuel Good initiative. Michaela Turner, manager of marketing and community relations with Co-op said it is important to fundraise for community groups since the Co-op’s vision and mission align with being a community lead-

er. Not only does the organization want to provide great customer service, but it also wants to be part of the community and give back “to help all these amazing groups.” Co-op put out a call for applications from non-profit and charity groups in the spring. The number of applications Co-op received actually tripled — to 26 from about nine — since the organization used social media more effectively, Turner said. In fact, her role is fairly new, so she was able to concentrate on social media, community relations, the application process, and inviting submissions, which produced solid results.

Staff from Moose Jaw Transition House helped pump gas during the Co-op’s Fuel Good Day on Sept. 17, while they also had help from Ms. T-Rex to promote the event. Photo courtesy Jenn Angus “We had so many worthwhile groups, it was a very hard decision to make,” she added. In the end, it was the company general manager who chose which charity would be the worthy recipient.

Six combines harvest canola on Baildon Hutterite Colony By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Six combines abreast took canola off the field at the Baildon Hutterite Colony, south of Moose Jaw. The canola was yielding about 40 bushels an acre, not bad considering the dry start to the year. “It didn’t look like we’d get this in early June,” commented Peter Hofer. Some of the crops were degraded by rain the week before with bleaching and sprouting, but not the canola. He worries about the lost $1 billion Ca-


nadian canola exports to China. “Things don’t look good for agriculture right now. “They (Chinese) are buying from Argentina. We’re never going to get that market back. We have to start growing other crops.” He speaks about a colony that grew 1,600 acres of hemp this year. “They pulverized it and that’s where they get the CBD oil from.” “You know in Hutterite history back in 1500s and 1600s we grew hemp.” One of the combines gets stuck briefly but manages to manoeuvre out. Both of the 1,600-bushel grain wagons are tracked as are the tractors pulling them.

six combines The combines chew up 80 acres an hour. They usually do 800 acres to 900 acres a day but have done 1,000 in a day. Better than $3 million investment in equipment rolls down the field. Three of the combines are cutting their 10th crop. One was with only 275 hours when the owner traded it in. Jacob Wipf pulls in with lunch, a kit prepared by the colony ladies for each man. Today lunch is a sweet cream soup, two chicken burgers, home fries, raw cucumber, tomato, buns, coffee or water. Awesome. With no school today for the 20 students, a number of boys are along for the harvest. “Future farmers,” one of the men points to the boys. The boys will be busy picking potatoes

when the colony harvests acres and acres of spuds. Hofer shows the yield loss monitor he built. The compact device is left on the ground to catch chaff and grain from the combine. “The ones you buy they break when you drive over them. This one you can drive over.” Grain collected by the monitor is weighed. A chart shows yield loss so the sieves can be adjusted. The Baildon colony was established in the 1960s, now operating a grain, dairy, hog, chicken and vegetable farm. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@


City needs to properly celebrate and recognize two achievements It’s time for celebration in in Moose Jaw would likely even know about the bigger Moose Jaw for two recent moose in Norway. Somehow, in their haste to take credit for the Mac attenachievements.

Help the University of Guelph improve hearing healthcare across Canada. Connect Hearing and Professor Mark Fenske at the University of Guelph are seeking participants who are over 50 years of age, have never worn hearing aids and have not had a hearing test in the last 24 months, for a hearing study that investigates factors that can influence better hearing. Study Parameters The researchers will examine listening in a range of situations, from one-on-one, to group conversations, watching TV and wider social contexts like supermarkets and other noisy environments, and how it effects connection and socialization.

Why Participate? It is estimated that 46% of people aged 45 to 87 have some degree of hearing loss, but most do not seek a solution right away. In this study you’ll be playing an important part in determining the key factors around identifying hearing loss and what influences the decision to seek treatment.

Participants will be significantly adding to growing knowledge surrounding hearing loss.

Local writing group cultivating the written word together Larissa Kurz

Much like author J.R.R. Tolkien and his fellow Inklings, who met regularly with other writers over a love of crafting fantasy, a handful of Moose Jaw writers are also on a quest to nourish the joy of writing in each other. The Moose Jaw Night Writers meet monthly to stretch their imaginations and share their work amongst like-minded individuals, as well as to challenge each other with writing prompts. Mark Fenton, one of the long-standing members of the group, joined at the insistance of friend and founder Christina Ritchie and has no regrets. “I wrote more in that first year than I did in the previous 30 years,” admitted Fenton. “It was just immediate.” The group offers a helpful support network for writers of all skill levels and preferred genres. Fenton listed an impressive array of literary interests that have made a debut at the Night Writers, from horror to romance and everything in between. “We have people, I’d say, from every talent level on the spectrum. Some people who are just at the beginning and some people who have been writing for decades,” said Fenton. “It’s a very eclectic group, and we do have fun with it.”

A few of the contributing writers to the anthology “From Darkness to Light,” by the Moose Jaw Night Writers, at their launch on Oct. 27, 2018. (L-R): Mark Fenton, Tim Alton, Nicole Pivovar, Nick Steele, Steve Nicholl, Lisa Goudy, Drew Nicks, Cory Kutschker, Lori Lancaster, Christina Ritchie. (photo by Randy Palmer) The goal isn’t necessarily to get published — although, for any writer, that is always an exciting occurrence — but rather to feel comfortable wielding the mighty pen. Some members — such as horror aficionado Drew Nicks and recent Festival of Words Poetry Slam competitor Nicole Pivovar — have been published numerous times in the past and still find value in the workshop-style evenings with the Night Writers. Other members are simply in it for the joy of the writing process. Each meeting encourages members to share their work with the group, for feedback purposes, but also to build a feeling of confidence. Fenton has seen writers

bloom with that feeling of community. “Writing is a very personal thing and sometimes it takes a while to open up and share,” said Fenton. “We’ve had some people really come out of their shells, after coming in very reserved and unsure of themselves, and it’s beautiful to see them later on where they’re enthusiastically and confidently reaching out to the group or going to the open mic nights and reading out their works.” Between round-table discussions, writing exercises, and sharing literary news, the group even finds time to take their talents to more public endeavors. Once a month, the Night Writers make an appearance at the Festival of Words Per-

former’s Café, an open mic night that welcomes talents of all varieties to perform for the crowd at Mitsu Café. In 2018, the Night Writers even went so far as to publish an anthology of work titled “From Darkness to Light,” featuring a variety of pieces from their members. The collection is still available to order through McNally Robinson’s website. The group has been active for about six years, with new members always welcome to join the crew and explore their potential as wordsmiths in a welcoming environment of fellowship. “You [write] better, you keep up with it better if you do it with a friend, and when you’re in a group, it’s kind of mutually motivating,” said Fenton. “[The Night Writers] all have the same goal and that’s to encourage each other in the art form and the joy of writing.” The next meeting of the Night Writers will take place on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m., upstairs at the Public Library. Anyone is welcome to drop by or to join the active Facebook group for a taste of the group. “Just bring a pad of paper and a pencil or pen, or bring your laptop, whatever it is you want to use, and just come and join us,” said Fenton.

First Make-A-Wish gala in Moose Jaw a rousing success

Larissa Kurz Organizer Natosha Wareham-Bakker of enLeigh Designs is extremely pleased with the support Moose Jaw has shown for the MakeA-Wish Foundation, following her inaugural Sparkling Sunset fundraising gala on Sept. 21. The event is the first iteration of what Wareham-Bakker is hoping to make an annual occasion. Her hopes don’t seem too far off the mark, as the gala raised $3,500 to go directly towards a local Make-A-Wish child’s dream. The Make-A-Wish Foundation makes sure that all funds raised in a community are used for a child in that community, meaning every The artwork that was available for dollar donated will stay in Moose Jaw. auction at Sparkling Sunset featured One wish costs about $10,000 to implement Saskatchewan sunsets. (supplied) for each child on the waiting list. With the funds raised at the gala, the Make-A-Wish hopefuls in Moose Jaw are much closer to seeing their wishes come true. Wareham-Bakker feels that Moose Jaw really stepped out as a community and flexed their charitable muscles. From the attendees who purchased tickets and took part in the auction, to the local businesses who donated raffle prizes and other help, Wareham-Bakker is grateful to see the support. “I think that Moose Jaw is a community that cares about those around us,” said Wareham-Bakker. “It’s heartwarming to me to see people just care for other people, for kids.” The event invited four Make-A-Wish children and families to share their stories, which Wareham-Bakker felt was an important touch. “We got a little insight and got to know the kids, and the impact this has had on their lives and their families,” said Wareham-Bakker. “Now, when we can announce the Moose Jaw wishes, people can hear that and say, ‘I did something to help that kid!’” While Wareham-Bakker was looking to raise monetary funds for the charity, she was also hoping to generate some interest in getting involved as a volunteer. Each table had someone involved in Make-A-Wish — volunteers, organizers, and even Make-A-Wish parents — seated amongst the guests to give people a chance to ask questions about the organization. “I think that made a real impact. I had one of our guests come up to me and say, ‘I want to volunteer, what do I do?’ And that’s so great, because it’s not just the money that we need,” said Wareham-Bakker. “We need people to step up and give some time as well and be that little ray of sunshine in a family’s life.” The successful event has Wareham-Bakker already thinking ahead to next year, and she said it is very likely that Temple Gardens Mineral Spa will partner with her once again for another year of the fundraiser.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS A time to stop and say “thank you so much” In today’s society, we all sometimes take for granted what we have, seldom questioning how such largess came about, simply accepting it as our right in life. As Thanksgiving approaches, it behooves us to pause and reflect and offer appreciation for our bountiful lives. Joyce Walter I give thanks for: For Moose Jaw Express • A loving husband ( mate) for nearly 50 years. • Parents who led by example and taught that hard work pays off and that money is not the most important item in life. • Siblings who tolerated a much younger sister who always wanted to tag along on their grown-up activities. • School friends who have remained friends all these many years later. • Lloyd Stewart, Annie Peterson, Mable Gamble, Norma Lawson, Mary Barber, Mary Smith, Jack Mackie, Gordon Gray, Dorothy Shillington, Leona Shillington, Walter Weinheimer — teachers from Grade 1 to Grade 12 who taught their lessons with patience and enthusiasm. • The late Ray Guay who gave me my first job in the newspaper business and to the other publishers and own-

ers who offered me the opportunity to continue writing about the community. • Moose Jaw organizations who have enriched my life through their willingness to work with me in presenting their messages to the public. • The doctors, nurses, lab technicians, and other medical professionals who have seen me through a variety of aches, pains and surgeries to keep me moving — slower but still mostly upright. • Ambulance attendants who have transported me to Moose Jaw and Regina hospitals, always apologizing for the sometimes-bumpy ride on city streets and provincial highways. And for providing those lemon-flavoured swabs with which to moisten dry lips. • Churches and schools that teach the necessary lessons for both children and adults. • Men and women who offer their services as councillors, MLAs and MPs, knowing it is sometimes a thankless job but still coming forward. • Coaches and parents who recognize the value of team work and spend countless hours teaching youngsters how to play, win and lose. • Music, dance and drama teachers who nurture a love for cultural activities. That include the late Margaret Garner who did her best with me, teaching me well enough that I still remember the first two or three bars of a spirited Cattle Call.

• Store clerks and other front-line servers who deal with a variety of customers, some of them demanding and others who are simply rude. Service with a smile is sometimes a hard-to-follow rule. • Military personnel and families at 15 Wing for their service to their country and in missions at home and overseas. • Hairstylists and beauty experts who make their clients feel beautiful, for beauty is in the eye of the beholder. • Agencies such as Moose Jaw and District Food Bank, Transition House, Hunger in Moose Jaw and Riverside (Souls Harbour) Mission for their work in assisting those among us who unfortunately need such services. • The Moose Jaw Warriors, our hockey team that offers a chance for fans to watch young players develop into potential NHL stars. If only some of those loud armchair goalies and defencemen would find seats in another section. Sigh. • And to others I might have not specifically mentioned — thank you for making all our lives so much better. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving.

connection to the agriculture industry and to recognize the contributions agriculture makes to the community. The agriculture industry is large and complex, and the goal is to engage the public with how Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers produce the food we all eat. “Agriculture month is a time to highlight our connection to food and the role agriculture plays in the lives of Saskatchewan people,” agriculture minister David Marit said in a press release. “From primary production and research to processing and technology, there are many stories to share about the care and consideration that goes into producing the healthy, nutritious meals on our

plates.” In a collaboration with Agriculture in the Classroom and Ag More Than Ever, the Ministry of Agriculture and Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan will be sharing food stories to encourage consumers to learn more about food production. The official start to the month will be on Oct. 4 in Saskatoon, and communities across Saskatchewan are encouraged to plan their own events throughout October to take part in the initiative Saskatchewan residents are also encouraged to share their own food story on social media, using #OurFoodHasAStory and #AgMonth19 to join the discussion.

D-Day Juno Beach paintball event a success for Joe’s Place Close to 200 participants take part in recreation of famed Second World War battle Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The ‘shelling’ started just before noon at Prairie Storm Paintball as soldiers of the Allied Forces marshalled into their landing craft to begin their assault on Axis positions entrenched on the hills above. Flares, fireworks and general explosions roared through the area as the Axis forces prepared for the ramps to drop and dozens upon dozens of Allied soldiers to begin their attack, attempting to climb and claw their way through the withering hail of fire from above. Three short horn blasts at exactly 12 o’clock and carnage ensued. With every second of it taking place in support of Joe’s Place youth centre. Prairie Storm hosted their annual D-Day re-creation paintball battle on the afternoon of Saturday, September. 21, drawing close to 200 competitors to the Axis and Allied sides for a day of fun warfare, all with the goal of raising as much money as possible for the local charity. “Oh man, it was incredible,” said Joe’s Place owner Joe Dueck, who served as an Allied commander for the event. “This is the 10th annual D-Day Juno Beach event, but this is the first year they’ve invited Joe’s Place to run it, including writing the script for the event, planning the game and then our youth helped to do a lot of work around the place like painting the landing craft and everything. “We’ve had youth play before but we’ve never helped run it and we’ve certainly never been the recipient of all the funds raised. It’s incredible, because we’re really struggling financially over the last couple of years and especially over the last two or three months. So this could not have come at a better time.” The event’s format was exceptionally unique. Each set of team leaders on both the Allied and Axis side received an intel package with maps and orders prior to the event in order to co-ordinated the assault and defence. Throughout the day, orders were updated and secret objectives were delivered, complete with full scripts. The planning went so far as to have the orders – such as one objective where a downed Spitfire pilot had to be rescued – signed by the proper authorities who would have made the decision back in 1944. The written realism was only part of the package. Throw in plenty of pyrotechnics and things get ramped up even further. That’s where Andrew Jones’ JFX special effects company came into play, as they set up the various fireworks and noisemakers to simulate the start of shelling and various objectives as the battle pro-

small fire that broke out and helping clear the Western Front ‘minefield’. Having the local armed forces unit involved was part of the plan to drive home the realism of the whole event. “We can’t turn a blind eye to what has happened, we have to acknowledge the price that was paid for our freedom, the freedom we enjoy so much in Canada,” Dueck said. “So hopefully everyone can take that home and do some research and learn what it was all about and what happened on Juno Beach on D-Day.” The Allied Forces pour off their landing craft, including one ridiculously brave combatant in the far right Higgins boat... gressed. Case in point, one sequence during the Eastern Front phase of the day. “When the Eastern Front opened the Allies had to take enough fuel from the fuel depot to get our Canadian tanks to Caen and then blow up the fuel depot,” Dueck explained. “The Axis troops repelled wave after wave of attacks, but the Allies were finally able to blow it up, which created an amazing fireball up into the sky and a smoke ring that probably lasted for half an hour.” And yes, the Allies did prevail on the day – Phase One simulated the landing on Juno Beach, complete with Higgins boat craft and the aforementioned heavy fire onto the ‘beach’ from entrenched positions. Allies were able to secure the beachhead, though, before moving into the outskirts of the town of Reviers. The Axis recovered in the late stages of the game and managed to regain lost ground, but by that time a minefield on the Western Front had been cleared, setting the stage for the Allies to overrun the area and claim overall victory. “We actually took a map of France and the towns near Juno Beach that the Canadians had to take, and we transferred those onto a map of Prairie Storm Paintball,” Dueck explained. “So as they were playing the game and had their maps and orders, they were defending and going after the towns that Canadians actually had to fight for.” That realism was part and parcel of Dueck’s plan for the day: in addition to having a ton of fun, the significance of the battle and the history behind it was also paramount. To that end, the re-creation opened with a memorial that highlighted the service of Sgt. Bill Williams of Moose Jaw, who was killed in the initial assault on Juno Beach and is buried in the Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery. “The moment of silence we held was pret-

ty powerful, there wasn’t a sound in the place,” Dueck said. “I think it’s important that we remember history or we’re bound to repeat it, so this was kind of one of those hands on experiences to think through what the cost of that battle actually was.” The entire project saw around 30 volunteers working throughout the day, including members of the Saskatchewan Dragoons armoured reconnaissance unit who helped run the Higgins boats and referee the game as well as even putting out a

I’m positive you will want to read this by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

“She is such a positive person.” “Why are you so negative all the time?” According to research, optimistic people live longer than those who are pessimistic; possibly up to 15 percent longer as a matter of fact. That is quite a difference. Some may argue that optimistic people have more to be optimistic about than negative people (like their present situation of more money, a better relationship or a good job). Others may argue that those good things

happen because they are “positive by nature”. Either way, your thoughts affect your health and longevity. You may have also heard the phrase, “Negativity breeds negativity”. Research is telling us that this is true as well. Apparently, our brain function rewires to more negative thoughts, the more we complain. If this is true, then thinking positive should do the opposite. We have all learned new tasks at some point in our lives. Hammering a nail, playing a guitar or doing math. The more we do it, the better we get. Our brains adapt through repetition and the need to become more efficient. This is not always a good thing. When we constantly have negative thoughts, our brains develop neural networks and pathways to get there faster too. For negative nellies, there is almost a reflex to the negative side of almost every situation. How does this affect our health? Physiologically, negativity can increase the body’s stress hormone (cortisol), blood pressure and heart rate increases, and muscles become more tense. This may be okay for a short-term negative thought, in a “fight or flight” situation, however chronic negativity will

more than likely contribute to chronic disease states, like heart disease. Chronic negativity may also affect digestive and immune function as well. Our brains are constantly learning and adapting to its environment. Brains can rewire (neuroplasticity) in both good and bad ways at any age. The good news is that we can control much of this through our thoughts. Self-directed neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to rewire itself through your own active thought process and behaviour. If you find yourself to be the, “get off my lawn!!” sort of person who hates all politicians, drivers and finds fault in all co-workers, your health may be suffering. The good news is that through mindful positive thinking and more gratitude, you can mould your brain to allow you to be more of a positive thinker. Think well and prosper! I am positive it will work.

Comparing class numbersJason difficult due to size of schools, says trustee G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express It can be difficult to compare class sizes and pupil-teacher ratios in Prairie South School Division (PSSD) due to the population differences in some schools, says one board trustee. Prairie South School Division has 39 schools located within 19 rural and urban communities. The division encompasses 32,747 square kilometres of southern Saskatchewan. It spans a geographic area from Coronach in the south, to Mankota in the west, to Rouleau in the east and Craik in the north. Based on division data, there are more classes with fewer than 10 students (151) than there are classes with more than 28 students (63). The data was presented during PSSD’s Oct. 1 board meeting. Having this data is important, especially when it comes to talking about pu-

pil-teacher ratios (PTR) at budget time, said Moose Jaw trustee Brian Swanson. “It’s such an arbitrary number,” he marked. Swanson used Moose Jaw’s Central Collegiate as an example, pointing out there are five English-related classes with 30 or more students. To discuss this issue intelligently— and to mitigate his concerns — he thought trustees would need to know if the same educator is teaching those five classes; what the teacher’s workload is elsewhere; and if that educator has a spare that semester. Swanson’s experience has been that it can be difficult to effectively teach writing skills when a class has 32 pupils. He thought those numbers were too high — especially for Grade 12 classes — and thought there was room for improve191016G1 191026G0 191026G1 191026G2 191026G4 191026G5 191026G6

ment at Central and A.E. Peacock collegiate. “We have a difficult job when a school division has schools with 600 students and schools with 38 students,” he added. “The magic happens in the classroom. That’s where our focus should be.” According to the data, Central Collegiate has 14 classes with more than 30 students; choir has the highest number of students at 83. Conversely, the school has seven classes with fewer than 10 students. Cornerstone Christian School has seven classes with more than 29 students; five classes have 38 students. Conversely, the school has two classes with fewer than 10 students. École Palliser Heights Elementary School has one class with more than 29 students. Peacock Collegiate has 20 classes with more than 29 students; musical theatre has the most students at 45. Prince Arthur School has three classes with more than 29 students. Westmount and William Grayson

schools each have one class with more than 29 students. Riverview Collegiate has four classes with fewer than 10 students. These numbers are nothing new, said Moose Jaw trustee Lew Young. They have been like this for as long as he has been on the board. Instead, he thought trustees should focus more on kindergarten teachers and the number of students they have in a day. Young pointed out such teachers could have 24 kids in the morning and 24 kids in the afternoon, which can be stressful. The board recognizes the disparate class sizes throughout the division between large and small schools, said Shawn Davidson, trustee for subdivision 5. Furthermore, class size does matter at the community level to parents and others. Davidson thought this report could be a good springboard when discussing staffing formulas in future years. The next PSSD board meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Committee decides on location for new joint-use school in Moose Jaw Larissa Kurz The new location for Moose Jaw’s jointuse school has been approved by the Boards of Education at Prairie South and Holy Trinity School Divisions. The school will be built in the Westheath area, on the west end of South Hill, and will replace four elementary schools in the city, all of which are currently located on South Hill.

“It’s a very significant investment in the city of Moose Jaw, and so that’s exciting because it’s kids and families and the community on South Hill that are really the beneficiaries of this,” -Prairie South director Tony Baldwin

The recommendation of the South Hill location came from the South Hill Steering Committee, after several months of collecting input from community members and considering infrastructure impacts. The new school facility will be constructed to house approximately 1,000 students, amalgamating students from the public

The new joint-use school will be built in this field, on the very west end of Wellington Dr. and Spadina Dr. in South Hill. and Catholic school divisions together under one roof. The project is being funded by the provincial government, and while an exact figure on how much the project will cost is unclear until designs are made, Prairie South director Tony Baldwin estimated a building of this size could cost something in the tens of millions of dollars. The expected date of completion has also yet to be determined, although Baldwin hopes to potentially see construction begin as early as next year. “If the funding is there and available, we want to get going with the actual con-

struction of the building, but it all has to happen in a pretty specific timeline,” said Baldwin. “[There’s a lot] of work that needs to be done before we actually get shovels in the ground.” The next step is to discuss land acquisition from the City of Moose Jaw, who owns the property at the end of Wellington Dr. and Spadina Dr. where the school will be built, followed by beginning the design process with a project manager. No decisions have been made regarding the future of the four school buildings that will be empty following the opening of the new school, although it is possible

they could become part of the property deal between the city and the school divisions. Both school divisions have been working closely together to bring this project to fruition, likely the beginning of a long partnership. While the joint-use school project takes shape, the two school divisions have also begun a joint bussing program in preparation for the future. The program has Prairie South School Division providing bussing for all four elementary schools in South Hill, which Baldwin sees making the transition to the new facility smoother in the future. “It’s something we were working on independent of the joint school,” said Baldwin. “It’s going to work out really well when the new school opens because it’s a piece of that puzzle that will already be completely harmonized between the two divisions.” The decision on the location is an exciting step forward for Moose Jaw, said Baldwin. “It’s a very significant investment in the city of Moose Jaw, and so that’s exciting because it’s kids and families and the community on South Hill that are really the beneficiaries of this,” said Baldwin.

Trustee attempts to stall progress on proposed joint-use school Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A trustee with the Prairie South School Division (PSSD) attempted to stall progress on the proposed joint-use school on South Hill since he thought there had not been enough public consultation. Jan Radwanski — a trustee for the City of Moose Jaw — put forward motion to have the school division ask the Ministry of Education to complete a feasibility study as part of the site selection process for the proposed building. If that analysis did not support a joint-use school, then Radwanski thought the next steps should be reviewed, including building single-use schools on existing sites. The board voted 9-1 against the motion, with Radwanski the only one in favour. The boards of education for Prairie South and Holy Trinity Catholic school divisions announced on Sept. 24 that they had chosen the Westheath area as the preferred new school location. Acquisition negotiations between the divisions and the City of Moose Jaw for about 10 acres of land at Westheath are underway. Motion background One positive of this request would be that a ministry-led analysis could provide additional confirmation of the findings of an engineering report about the proposed Westheath site, the motion suggested. However, the motion also suggested such a study would be unlikely to provide additional insight since represen-

Oh Clark’s

tatives from the deputy minister’s office, the education infrastructure branch and SaskBuilds have been involved in the process with the engineering firm. Furthermore, additional study may threaten timelines as both boards of education move forward with the new school. The Ministry of Education is also unlikely to change course and construct single-use buildings. Discussion The process to build a joint-use school has been challenging, Radwanski said. Recently in Regina, a new joint-use building for Argyle and St. Pius elementary schools hit a roadblock since the community was concerned about the proposed location. “As a board, to say South Hill residents have spoken is not accurate … ,” he said. “We have not made a bona fide attempt to gauge the pulse of the community, to ask surrounding landowners to see whether or not that Westheath site off Glendale is suitable for a 1,000-person school.” There is plenty of before- and after-school programming at the two public schools, along with many students with intensive needs, Radwanski continued. To go from two principals and vice-principals down to one of each would be a disservice to students and families. Also, of the 1,000 projected students, a study has suggested 700 students would need to be bussed to the location. This motion would also allow Prairie South to potentially keep a single-use school in operation and reuse an exist-

ing gym building while also having a playground, recreation amenities, sidewalks, smooth traffic flows, and not be “snuggled up in the corner of southwest Moose Jaw” where so few students live, he said. This debate is an attempt to turn back the clock on this issue by nearly three years, especially since Radwanski has been opposed to a new location since Day 1, said Moose Jaw trustee Tim McLeod. The board has had many public and private meetings on this issue, McLeod continued. However, Radwanski has chosen not to attend all the meetings where the documentation was reviewed. “We have heard very clearly from the public that they are in favour of a joint-use facility. They’ve (given) feedback and input into what that might look like and where that might be,” McLeod added. Although the Westheath site was not proposed originally, it became the most suitable location since there was no concern with it being near railroad tracks or the rail yard, said Shawn Davidson, trustee for subdivision 5. Comparing what’s happening in Moose Jaw to Regina is also misplaced and misguided, he added, since there has been strong lobbying from the St. Pius School community to keep the building. There has been no similar lobbying from residents here; instead, the attitude has been “to just get it built.” The next PSSD board meeting is Oct. 22.

Mortlach Museum highlights two well-known local artists, ranch history By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

The Mortlach fire hall and jail almost left town to be part of a museum in Regina. Forty years ago, the community recycled the building as a museum and drop-in centre. Now the museum displays the village’s history since founding in 1902 after the CPR tracks were re-routed. The community’s first settler in that year was an immigrant from Iraq, Khamis Michael. One of his buildings, the former Wagons West Restaurant, still exists in town. Outside the museum, a bench welded from an old hay rake is dedicated to local cowboy Charlie Smith. Museum exhibits highlight two well-known artists from here. Casey Jones painted numerous subjects extensively. This display concentrates on his portraits of First Nations leaders. A carpenter for the CPR, Jones was interested in the Sioux, often visiting a camp south of Mortlach where he drew sketches. His interest in First Nations extended to collecting and identifying artifacts such as spear points and arrowheads on the Prairie. His mounted artifact collection is in the Moose Jaw Public Library Archives. An art display featuring Fred Lahrman also mentions his work as a naturalist and in re-establishing the Canada

New mural

Smith bench goose population and his whooping crane conservation work. As a boy, Lahrman hooked a string to his box camera to take close-up photos of young burrowing owls. One of those photos is on display. Lahrman’s artwork and diorama are part of the Saskatchewan Museum of Natural History background scenes. A recent addition to the museum is an internal wall mural depicting the Mortlach CPR station. The mural was painted by Sandra Zacker, who involved members of the

community in the painting process. A three-volume binder collection contains documents from the historic W-B Ranch, an early ranch south of Mortlach, now owned by the Campbell family. The ranch operated with the original owner from 1892, first with cattle then horses, until the late 1920s. Upstairs the old mayor’s office became a military display. The symbolic bar is all that remains of the council chambers/court room. The single jail cell at the back is much the same as in 1911 when the town built the fire hall complex. The museum is open in summer months or by appointment by calling 306-355-2319.

Food business could deliver profits or cause stomach churning Food delivery from restaurants has long been a staple and stable service across the country. For the most part, restaurants have hired part-time employees with vehicles to make the deliveries. Technology on several fronts has allowed a new business model to develop based on delivery only by one operation. This service cuts out the need for the restaurant to hire and manage operators of its delivery service. And the delivery business can supposedly make a buck by efficiently consolidating numerous deliveries from numerous restaurants.

According to an in-depth research study by California-based Credence Research, online food delivery was a $81.5 billion U.S. industry across the globe in 2017. Even more amazing, the research estimates the food delivery business will grow at an annual compounded rate of 9.8 per cent until 2028 — likely doubling in value. By contrast an annual growth rate of three per cent is considered good. Technology has permitted the new delivery business model. Two-way mobile communications offer efficiency; phone apps let customers conveniently place orders online.

The business in the U.S. is dominated by 10 large corporations from Uber Eats, a spin-off of the taxi company, to Grubhub, Deliveroo and Domino’s. Domino’s is the only food vendor among the top 10. The growing market enticed a small Montreal-based company to offer the service. Started as a junior capital pool company looking to acquire a business in 2017, GOLO Mobile Inc. became operative with a merger in June this year. GOLO entered the Montreal food delivery industry with a fleet of 30 low operating cost electric vehicles providing pickup and delivery of grocery and pharmacy items. A corporate study revealed a market among millennials, aged 25 to 40 years, for the service based on hunger, emergency and convenience. GOLO began signing up merchant partners to exclusive delivery. The company website indicates 140 partners in five cites. A recent signing involves an office complex with 10,000 workers and 30 restaurants in Montreal. A satellite office was set up in Toronto. GOLO intends to focus on office towers, airports, hospitals, condo developments, stadiums and events to develop business. The model appears strong. The main weakness appears ease of entry into this business. Deep pockets may be needed to maintain and grow revenues if stiff competition arrives on the scene. The company has burned through a lot of cash in two years, posting an accumulated deficit of $31.9 million. For the three months ended June 30, operating loss was around $2.5 million on revenues of only $47,000. Cash on hand amounted to $7.25 million — enough to last another nine months at this rate. With a share price of 34 cents raising more cash will dilute shareholder interests. GOLO is worth watching to see if the business model delivers within the next year or two. If it does investors could be well rewarded. If it doesn’t investors may need a lot of Tums. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security. Bizworld does not recommend investments.

In some homes, the Thanksgiving meal absolutely has to include roast goose or duck and pumpkin pie, with maybe some mixture of carrots and parsnips. Geese are perhaps too expensive to enjoy more than once a year so anticipation just makes the goose taste that much better. This week’s recipes offer goose and pumpkin pie for a tasty, traditional Thanksgiving dinner. ••• Roast Goose 1 goose, about 8 lbs. juice of lemon salt and pepper 1/2 yellow onion, peeled and chopped 1 clove garlic 1/2 cup Madeira wine 2 tbsps. flour 2 cups chicken stock 1 tsp. thyme root vegetables: carrots, parsnips, turnips, potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks Bring goose to room temperature. Remove giblets and ex-

cess fat from inside goose. Prick goose skin all over with a darning needle to allow fat to drain while cooking but do not pierce meat. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Rub goose all over with cut halves of lemon. Put lemon inside goose with clove of garlic. Salt and pepper goose then place in a roasting pan, breast side up. After goose has cooked 20 minutes, drain fat from pan and add vegetables. Return to oven and continue roasting goose until done. Use baster to remove fat. While goose is cooking, prepare the gravy by chopping the onion and giblets and browning in some goose fat in a large pan. Sprinkle flour in the pot and stir to combine. Cook over medium heat, 5-10 minutes. Turn heat to high and add Madeira. Boil furiously for a minute or two. Add chicken stock and stir, then add thyme. Turn burner to simmer. When goose is nearly done, remove giblets from gravy then puree liquid until smooth. Keep warm on stove over low heat. Remove goose from pan and let settle while vegetables continue to cook. Carve goose and serve with vegetables and gravy. Note: If desired, serve with mashed potatoes and gravy with steamed root vegetables.

••• Perfect pumpkin Pie 9 inch pie crust, unbaked 1-15 oz. can pumpkin puree 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 1/2 cup evaporated milk 1 cup brown sugar 2 tsps. pumpkin pie spice 1/4 tsp. salt 3 eggs Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except eggs. Add eggs one at a time. Beat 3-5 minutes until mixture is light and fluffy. Pour into crust and bake for 10 mins. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake an additional 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Cover and store in refrigerator. Serve with whipped cream topping. Note: individual tart shells may be used rather than one pie crust. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Self-Care and You!

Moose Jaw’s Partners against Violence Committee brings together a number of local service agencies, as well as local RCMP and Moose Jaw Police to work towards building a safer community for all. Self-care is any activity that we do intentionally to take care of our mental, emotional and physical health. This is something that everyone can benefit from, but can be intimidating to put into practice. Self-care is not just an activity that you do for yourself when you are already sick, it is used as a preventative measure. Self-care, ideally is something you can work into your everyday rituals, it doesn’t need to be time consuming. Self-care can be done in as little amount of time as you can fit into your lifestyle. Self-care needs to be something that you

enjoy, not something that you are forcing yourself to do because you figure is good for you so you should do it. So you might need brainstorm some ideas of things that you like to do have the wonderful side effect of taking care of yourself. Some suggestions for self-care are: going outside to enjoy nature, getting enough sleep, exercise, meditation, laughing, and cooking and eating nutritious food. This is by no means a complete list, just a starting point to assist you with brainstorming self-care ideas for yourself.

Self-care is important because it has been shown to positively affect people across multiple areas in their lives: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. By practicing self-care you can elicit what is known as the relaxation response, which can prevent chronic stress from negatively affecting your health. Stress is a necessary part of life, it gets us to get up and go to work, to meet deadlines, to get your house cleaned before guests come over. Too much stress or chronic stress can affect you negatively – headaches, body

pain, or lack of energy to name a few. Moose Jaw offers some great opportunities for self-care. The library has programs that could allow you to increase your social circle while doing something you enjoy, not to mention getting a book to read or a DVD to watch. There are parks to walk in to enjoy nature, free yoga or workout classes on occasion, walking paths to get around on or parks to play in with your dog. My personal favourite is taking a walk with my dog in Wakamow Valley.

New portable classroom nearly ready at St. Agnes School Jason G. Antonio -Moose Jaw Express

St. Agnes School’s library has been a makeshift classroom for some students since the school year began, but they will soon move into a new relocatable classroom once it has been fully installed. Enrolment at the school during the past few years has exceeded projections, explained Sean Chase, director of education for Holy Trinity Catholic School Division. The division estimated that the school would have at least 330 students this year, but as of Sept. 23, there were 339 students calling the building home. Last year St. Agnes School had a student population of 328, which was considered a large number even then. “(This is) a great news story in that community,” Chase said recently. The school division applied to the Ministry of Education last November for a relocatable — or portable — classroom. The request was approved in the 2019 March budget. The ministry provides funding to school division to purchase relocatable units. It cost $440,000 to bring in the new portable classroom. However, after going through a tender process, the Catholic division discovered it would cost closer to $500,000. Therefore, it had to provide additional funding from its bank account to complete the project.

The new portable classroom at St. Agnes School should be ready in a few weeks. Enrolment at the school has exceeded the school division’s expectations. Photo by Jason G. Antonio The division purchased the relocatable unit and had it delivered to the school over the summer. However, division administration realized the room wouldn’t be ready by September due to weather issues, Chase said. Work still needs to be completed around the base of the structure, including near the crawl space under the classroom. The recent rains have hampered the contractor’s completion efforts.

“We are hopeful to have the students fully moved in within a couple of weeks,” Chase added. A class of students has been meeting in the library regularly since Sept. 3 while waiting for their new classroom to be ready. New desks have been purchased and are ready to be moved into the new room. Chase visited that particular class recently and brought treats as a way to thank them for their patience. “As we typically forget sometimes as adults, kids are very good and adept at making the best of the situation … they thought it was pretty cool that they were in the library right now,” he said. “Their classroom teacher did a wonderful job of creating a welcoming space for them there and the school has been doing an excellent job as well … .” Holy Trinity Catholic School Division has also seen a growth in enrolment during the past few years. As of Sept. 23, the division had 2,382 students enrolled in its schools in Swift Current, Shaunavon and Moose Jaw. This number is 40 students beyond its projection and exceeds division enrolment for last year. “We’re excited for that number (of 2,382 students) … ,” Chase added. “It has been a positive trend for our school division.”

Union brings attention to negotiations by picketing school board office Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Members of CUPE Local 5512 — the union that represents educational support workers in Prairie South School Division (PSSD) — could go on strike in November if a new agreement cannot be reached. To put pressure on the school board, more than 50 members picketed in front of the board office on Ninth Avenue Northwest on Oct. 1 in an attempt to bring attention to ongoing contract negotiations. Earlier this year members voted 95.7 per cent in favour of moving forward with job action, up to and including a full withdrawal of services. During another recent vote, members voted 89 per cent against ratifying a proposed agreement put for-

ward by PSSD. The union and the school division have agreed to keep working with the provincially appointed mediator to hammer out a new deal. The main issues for the union include wages and the employer’s proposed changes to the long service recognition benefit gratuity. The school division has proposed wage increases of zero and zero during the first two years of a new contract, while it also wants to remove the gratuity. This would particularly affect out of scope employees with more than 10 years of experience, as they would usually receive 10 per cent of their annual salary up to a maximum of

$6,000 as part of the retirement recognition benefit. This benefit has been around since at least 1980, according to one union member. This money is generated by building up unused sick time. Most union members are making about $25,000 a year.

There are more than 500 education support workers from PSSD who are members of the Local 5512 union. About a dozen union members later sat in on the PSSD board meeting that afternoon. 19102NP0 19102NP1

MLA Moose Jaw Wakamow

Thanksgiving is nearly here and that means it’s time to consider some of the things that we are most thankful for. Naturally, our thoughts turn to our loved ones, their health and well being. We are fortunate to live in a province and country that provides exceptional health care. Earlier this month, representatives from the provincial government, Saskatchewan Health Authority and the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation gath-

ered to celebrate its completion. I am grateful that Saskatchewan is no longer one of two provinces in Canada without a dedicated maternal and children’s hospital. This would not have been made possible if it weren’t the tireless efforts of volunteers, donors, community members, the JPCH Foundation, Brynn Boback-Lane, Jim Pattison, and countless others who came together to make the dream of the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital a reality. This is a testament to the very best of what our province has to offer. I am so proud to live in Moose Jaw where we have some of the most generous and selfless volunteers around! This is evident at the annual fundraisers that I have recently attended. Habitat for Humanity recently held their Annual 5k Colour Run. This unique event is always fun and benefits well deserving families with their own home who in turn pay it forward. Habitat does great work in our community and I am happy to support them any way that I can.

The Wakamow Valley Authority along with many volunteers took time out of their day to gather the harvest from The Mosaic Community Food Farm. I know that the Moose Jaw Food Bank and Hunger in Moose Jaw truly appreciate the proceeds. Thank you to all who participated. I was honoured to bring greetings to the Riverside Mission’s Annual Harvest Banquet. This event was a huge success thanks to the people of Moose Jaw who came out in full force. The Riverside Mission is a heartwarming example of what a small team of committed and caring leaders can achieve. I want to thank the dedicated staff for helping our most vulnerable citizens on a daily basis. To all of the volunteers in Moose Jaw and our province thank you for your dedication to improving our community! I can’t think of a better place to be. Happy Thanksgiving!

Genealogical Society branch in Moose Jaw back to the books Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Genealogical Society returned from their two-month summer hiatus with their first monthly meeting held in September, where they’ve planned some interesting topics for the rest of the year. The branch hosts a new speaker at each monthly meeting, which take place on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Public Library. Topics range from research tips and database how-tos, to the interesting experiences and discoveries by members during their own research. For the upcoming meeting in October, branch president Marge Cleave will begin the year by sharing her recent trip to Ireland and the research she did there. A couple of branch members will also give a presentation on researching surnames and their origins. On Nov. 7, the Genealogical Society will offer a presentation on how to research military records, which is sure to be useful. “That’ll be a very interesting afternoon, with that one,” said Cleave. “It will be right before Remembrance Day.” The Genealogical Society holds meetings as a space for sharing, to offer a network of support in each members’ quest to uncover their family history. “We’re there to help anybody who wants to get started in their genealogy,” said Cleave. “And if you do get stuck on something, or you hit a brick wall, there’s always somebody who’s there to help you, to tell you what direction to

go in, and so it’s always very helpful to attend.” Cleave encourages anyone in the community interested to consider attending a meeting — because although it may seem like a daunting project, genealogical research uncovers interesting parts

of personal history. “We always say, you start with yourself and you work backward with the information that you know,” said Cleave. “You always want to find where your roots are, where you’ve come from. And everybody has stories. You can always

collect the names and the dates and everything, but it’s always good to research stories about your ancestors.” Cleave even shared a story of her own recent discovery, where she uncovered her great-great grandfather’s admittance record to an insane asylum in Ireland — something she didn’t know still existed. “We actually held those records right in our hand, and they’re covered in dust because they’re really, really old,” said Cleave. “I also went to the church where my grandparents were married and got to see the records of their marriage right there, that’s always interesting.” Membership isn’t required for the first few meetings, but it does offer access to a ton of useful resources. The Moose Jaw branch is part of the larger Saskatchewan Genealogical Society, and both organizations have databases available to members listing things like obituaries, marriage licenses, and cemetery records. The next monthly meeting will be on Oct. 22 at 7 p.m., in the Herb Taylor Room at the Public Library. Cleave hopes to see some new faces stop in and encourages people to utilize the databases available on the branch’s website. “Come out to an evening and let us know what your interest is in genealogy. We’re here to help anybody who wants to get started researching their family tree,” said Cleave.

Province-wide tour seeks feedback from Saskatchewan physicians Larissa Kurz

The Saskatchewan Medical Association has embarked on its annual tour across the province, stopping in 11 locations to meet with local physicians in a forum designed to hear their concerns. Both the president and vice-president of the SMA take time from their own schedules to conduct the tour. The purpose is to make contact with doctors in the province and hear what issues they are facing. The SMA often finds that doctors can become isolated from one another — and even from their health regions — due to busy schedules, and the tour is one way the association seeks to reconnect the medical community province-wide. This year, SMA president Dr. Allan Woo, an orthopedic surgeon from Saskatoon, and vice-president Dr. Barb Konstantynowicz, a family physician in Regina, stopped in Moose Jaw during the last week of September. “We want to make sure that [physicians] are doing the best work that they can, and that best work means having good worklife balance, making sure that patients are well and healthy, and that they understand

(L-R): Dr. Barbara Konstantynowicz, SMA vice-president for 2019-20; Dr. Allan Woo, SMA president for 2019-20; and Moose Jaw’s Dr. Mark Brown, past SMA president for 2015-16. what their role is within the system,” said Woo. “It’s exciting times for sure. We’re facing some new challenges.” While the Moose Jaw Express was not privy to the meeting, Woo was able to share some of the recurring concerns Saskatchewan physicians have shared recent-

ly, including the Saskatchewan Health Authority’s ongoing restructuring into one universal health region. “That’s been a big topic, trying to figure out where the communication lies between physicians and the health authority,” said Woo. “We have some issues

with bylaws . . . that sort of dictate how physicians interact and relate to the health authority.” Another issue that has been a concern in the last few years is the ongoing negotiations with the Ministry of Health for a new Medical Compensation Review Committee agreement, which expired in 2017. “The SMA is at the table with the Health Authority and the Ministry [of Health] on both of those topics,” said Woo. “I think we’re making some good points in terms of trying to make healthcare better.” All of the feedback collected during the president’s tour will be used to inform how the SMA proceeds on issues in the future. “A lot of issues carry on from year to year, because obviously nothing gets solved right away,” said Woo. “We understand the struggles that SHA and Ministry have are the same struggles that physicians have at the local level, so as long as we’re still having a dialogue that’s open and respectful, then I think we can achieve some success.”

Harvest operations at less than half the usual progress By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS In most years Saskatchewan farmers would be cleaning up the last few fields in harvest. Not this year. As September ended with a general rain farmers had just under half the crop in

the bin – 47 per cent — managing another eight per cent in that week of rain. The five-year average has 75 per cent of the crop off by the end of September. September ended with snow that delayed harvest another week or two and reduced grades and cost yields in some crops. A week or more so dry weather is needed to get on fields. Harvest in the snow or spring seems as-

sured for many farmers. Accessing crop insurance becomes difficult. The rules don’t allow payout until the harvest is completed. Harvest is most advanced in then southwest with 68 per cent off followed by the southeast and northeast with half in the bin. Forty-six per cent is in the bin in the west central region with only 34 per

cent and 33 per cent respectively in the northwest and east central regions. Much of the harvest in the last week of September was put through grain dryers or into aerations bins for better seed storage. Moisture on cropland is 31 per cent surplus, 65 per cent adequate and four per cent short.

Congratulations to Ron and Joyce Walter on the Celebration of their 50th Wedding Anniversary. With heartfelt appreciation, we are thankful for your service to our community and our newspaper in journalism. We wish you all the best!

For more information see the Moostletoe Artists Studio Tour Facebook page.

Moostletoe Studio Tour offering inside peek into the lives of local artists Larissa Kurz

The Moostletoe Studio Tour will be giving the public a chance to experience local artists in a more personal type of way: by touring their studios and workspaces here in the city. Each artist chosen to be on the tour is a full-time artist, making a living from their work. The MJMAG has worked with each artist in some capacity, either currently or in the past, and hopes the tour will highlight some of the incredible artistry located right here in Moose Jaw. “Our goal in the studio tours is to feature someone who has a studio or a working space that people are curious about, how they work,” said Christy Schweiger, education coordinator at the MJMAG. The studio tours offer a chance for many to meet the face behind perhaps familiar and favourite artwork in the community, and to understand the kind of work that goes into that final piece. There is always an enthusiastic response from the community each year for the tour, with people coming from out of town to take part. “We have a lot of people who look forward to it every year,” said Schweiger. “It’s a great day.” The Moostletoe Tour has once again put together a collection of work from the participating artists to be won — and only those who collect a stamp from each studio on their “passport” will be entered to win it. “Each studio involved has donated a couple of items that we’ve put into a basket, valued at over $250,” said Schweiger. “At the end of the day, someone will be a lucky recipient of gift items from all of the studios.” The tour is free of admission, and people can begin at any location on Oct. 19. Each studio will have a map and list of studio addresses, which are also listed on the Moostletoe Studio Tour Facebook page. Stay tuned to and the weekly Moose Jaw Express for more coverage of each artist, leading up to the tour on Oct. 19.

Artistic couple combines talents for tour of South Hill studio Larissa Kurz

M&M Glass With Class studio is the home base for stained glass expert Brenda McLaughlin, who has been working with glass for over a decade. As one of the stops on the Moostletoe Studio Tour on Oct. 19, Brenda will welcome people to visit her space.

Brenda’s talents with glass are unending and she has experimented with all kinds of techniques and designs, including window panes, lampshades, mosaics, three-dimensional pieces, and even jewellery. Her work has been featured across Saskatchewan, and Brenda has taken commissions from all over Canada. At her studio, Brenda displays not only her own work for purchase but also the necessary supplies for glassworking. She also offers classes on the art, for both beginners and more experienced artists. Husband and muralist Grant McLaughlin will also be featured during the tour. Grant is the artist of a number of Moose Jaw’s impressive murals, and one of the founding members of the mural project in the city. Part of Grant’s passion for art is exploring the connection of people to their heritage and environment. His murals and sculptures are a part of communities across Western Canada, celebrating the history of the prairies. Both Brenda and Grant are looking forward to welcoming visitors to M&M Glass with Class, and Brenda even teased the possibility of a glassworking demo if time allows. The couple has taken part in the Moostletoe Studio Tour before, and enjoy the opportunity to meet people. “Its just kind of neat to have people come through and

Brenda McLaughlin, a local stained-glass expert who calls Moose Jaw home. (supplied) see your stuff, people who maybe didn’t even know we were here,” said Brenda. “It’s always fun, talking to all of the people.” M&M Glass With Class is located at 301 4th Ave SW.

for the environment,” said Keen. “A lot of people have relationships with trees, in the sense of maybe they sat under one or had a tire swing tied as kids.” On the day of the tour, Keen will have the gallery in his home open to the public, featuring around 30 pieces of his work, some of which are entirely new and never seen before. This is the third year in a row that the Keen’s have participated in the studio tour, and they are looking forward to seeing the curious crowd. “There’s always such a variety of things,” said Keen. “Everybody has a different studio and its interesting . . . looking at different artworks that are all produced locally.” The W.C. Keen gallery is located at 127 Calypso Dr. More information on Bill and Laurette Keen can be found on the gallery’s website,

The studio tour will be a chance to explore Morin’s workshop, located in his backyard, and ask questions about the complicated process of clay work. Morin is more than happy to explain the complexity of ceramics. “The fun part of [ceramics] is there’s millions of possibilities, even just in glaze dynamics, form, and then techniques like firing in certain ways to make accents come out. It is a science,” said Morin. He will also have a selection of works, “seconds” returned from shows and galleries, displayed throughout his yard that will be for sale at a discounted price, to take home the day of the tour. Morin takes part in the Moostletoe Studio Tour each year — with the exception of the year he was in Japan — and is always pleased with the interest he sees during the day.

Proposed potash mine won’t affect Moose Jaw’s water supply, say officials Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A proposed potash mine nearly 150 kilometres away from Buffalo Pound Lake will use the lake’s water for its operations, and while environmental groups are concerned, some provincial officials are not. The provincial government granted conditional environmental assessment approval to CanPacific Potash’s $4-billion Albany project, located in the Sedley-Francis area. However, the project must meet several more conditions, including mitigating or compensating for affected native grassland and wetland habitat. It must also receive approval from the rural municipality, the Water Security Agency (WSA), the Ministry of Highways and the Ministry of Energy and Resources. Albany would be a solution mine that would produce 3.25 million tonnes of potash each year. It likely won’t start operations until at least 2025. Solution mining involves injecting water underground to dissolve deep potash deposits into brine. The Albany mine is expected to use between 24,000 and 39,600 cubic metres — or 16 Olympic-sized swimming pools — of untreated (raw) water every day from Buffalo Pound Lake. An Olympic-sized pool contains 2.5 million litres of water. City of Moose Jaw “Based on information from Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant and Water Security Agency, we have no concerns about the future of available water to serve the City of Moose Jaw,” Craig Hemingway, communications manager for Moose Jaw, said in an email. Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant “If they’re taking water from Buffalo Pound Lake, that’s not really a concern

for us … ,” said Ryan Johnson, general manager of the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant. “It would probably be a benefit to us from an operational and quality perspective.” There is 90 million cubic metres — or 90 billion litres — of water in the lake, which provides a three-year supply of water. The plant treats 100 million litres of water per day; last year Moose Jaw consumed 5,526.26 megalitres — or 5.5 billion litres — of water from the plant, while two years ago the municipality consumed 5,676 megalitres. The Water Security Agency (WSA) manages the lake based on its levels, Johnson explained. This means there is very little water movement through the lake and thus poor water quality. There is good quality water in hot, dry years because the province releases water regularly from Lake Diefenbaker through the Qu’Appelle River chain into Buffalo Pound Lake to maintain its level. The water treatment plant likes this since it can access better quality of water. Besides the water treatment plant, Yara Belle Plaine, Mosaic Potash and K+S

Potash also take water from the lake. The plant uses more water regularly than those companies combined, Johnson continued. If the approved Yancoal potash project and Albany project come to fruition, this means fresher water will come continually from Lake Diefenbaker to top up Buffalo Pound Lake. The water treatment plant works with the WSA to determine what the demand for water will be in the future. Based on the WSA’s 25-year scenarios, Johnson remarked, there is no indication of any future water shortages. Water Security Agency The proposed potash mine will have little to no effect on the water supply at Buffalo Pound Lake, echoed WSA spokesman Patrick Boyle. The provincial agency doesn’t believe any harm will come to the lake based on its longterm scenarios. Boyle praised the provincial government’s foresight in the late 1950s to build the Gardiner Dam, which led to the creation of the Lake Diefenbaker. This massive body of water supports communities, producers and businesses all along the Qu’Appelle River chain.

Although the potash project received approval from the Ministry of Environment, the Albany project still needs to meet the WSA’s regulatory requirements, he explained. It won’t issue any permits until then. When it does, it will also issue a water licence and indicate how much water the potash mine can use. The project’s owners will also have to pay an industry water user fee. “I don’t believe (supply levels) is a concern at this point in time … ,” Boyle added. “There is adequate supply at Buffalo Pound now and into the future.” Opposition groups The grasslands conservation organization Public Pastures – Public Interest has denounced the project as putting too much strain on an already stressed watershed. “We can’t be approving these kinds of extractive projects that are going to pollute and remove a whole bunch of water from the water cycles,” Trevor Herriot, co-chair of the group, told the Regina Leader-Post. “It just seems completely ludicrous and irresponsible … . “Has the minister or anybody in this government taken a look at the Qu’Appelle River this summer? It’s down to a trickle. The muskrats are high and dry in some areas,” he added. “The water is disappearing. It’s so completely irresponsible to dewater the landscape and store it down in caverns eternally.” Another provincial environmental group also disagrees with the project. “The Prairies is already one of the extreme water crisis areas on the planet,” Jim Harding, director of the Qu’Appelle Valley Environmental Association, also told the Leader-Post. “Yet there is nothing about the cumulative impacts of promising all this water to a growing number of solution mines.”

Breastmilk from human donors available at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital Larissa Kurz

The Saskatchewan Health Authority announced in a recent press release that human donor breastmilk is now available in Moose Jaw’s Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital as an aide to help newborn babies transition to breastfeeding. The pasteurized donor human milk (pDHM) is supplied by the NorthernStar Mother’s Milk Bank, located in Calgary. The federally regulated milk bank accepts screened donations of excess breastmilk from mothers, which then undergoes a pasteurization process to eliminate bacteria and make the milk safe for all babies.

“As a family doctor, and mom of three, I am so excited for pDHM to be available at our hospital,” said Dr. Joanne Fynn, a family physician at Alliance Health Clinic in Moose Jaw, in the press release. “Moms who want to exclusively breastfeed will now have this safe and beneficial supplement option available, if needed, while in hospital.” Human milk is recommended as the best source of nutrition for the first six months of a child’s life. Breastmilk offers greater nutritional benefits for growth and development, as well as protection from various infections, food allergies, and issues in the digestive tract.

Families outside of the hospital can also access human breastmilk from the NorthernStar Mother’s Milk Bank, with a prescription from an appropriate medical professional. Currently, Saskatchewan has milk bank drop-off locations in Saskatoon, Regina, and Yorkton. Moose Jaw is planning to become a drop-site for the milk bank in the future. The availability of human milk in the Dr. F.H Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw aligns with National Breastfeeding Week in Canada.

High school students allowed to leave Saskatchewan for activities Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Students from two Moose Jaw high schools will be able to travel out of province in the coming months for their extracurricular activities. A.E. Peacock Collegiate’s grade 10 to 12 jazz band plans to travel to Canmore, Alta., from Nov. 1 to 3 to take part in a music festival. The group’s anticipated budget is $4,500, with all funds to come from fundraising initiatives. If students don’t fundraise, they will have to pay $300 out of pocket to attend. Central Collegiate’s senior boys’ basketball team plans to travel to A.E. Peacock Collegiate Brandon, Man., to participate in the Brandon Sun Spartan Invitational Basketball Tournament from Dec. 12 to 14. The team’s budget is between $800 and $1,000, which includes van rental, gas, hotel rooms and meals. Funds are expected to come from fundraising activities, player fees and other sources. Both schools submitted requests for permission to the Prairie South School Division (PSSD) to attend their respective events. Trustees with the division approved the requests during their Oct. 1 board meeting. Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) has put out recommendations around the use of coach buses, said Shawn Davidson, trustee for subdivision 5. He thought the PSSD board should review those recommendations and consider the safety of students who take charter buses. “It is well documented that school buses are far safer vehicles than coach buses because they’re constructed much differently,” he said. “Coach buses are essentially a fibreglass shell sitting on a frame. A school bus is essentially an army tank painted yellow.” It is also well documented that school buses are 73 times safer than any other vehicle on the road, Davidson added. The next PSSD board meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Juggler uses physics to wow students during performance Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A Philadelphia-based juggler used all sorts of objects to entertain students while also showing them how physics and math can be applied to everyday objects. Innovative juggler Greg Kennedy was in Moose Jaw on Sept. 26 where he performed for students at Westmount and King George elementary schools, followed by another performance for students at Palliser Heights School on Sept. 27. Sponsored by the Organization for Saskatchewan Arts Councils (OSAC) Kennedy is travelling throughout Saskatchewan from Sept. 23 to Oct. 11 to entertain students at schools from the north to the south. Kennedy incorporated several objects into his routines, such as balls, Frisbees, bowling pins, magnetized blocks, bowls and chimes. Students clapped and cheered as they watched the juggler perform routines that seemed almost impossible. Trained as an engineer, Kennedy used the principles of geometry and physics to create ground-breaking, according to a news release. He quit his full-time job to become a juggler and has never looked back. He discovered the excitement and challenge of creating performance are using the fundamental concepts of physics. Kennedy has twice received the highest honour during the International Jugglers Association Championship. He was one of the first jugglers to go viral and have more than two million views on YouTube. He also toured with Cirque du Soleil for five years.

If you’re a service club or non-profit organization looking for volunteers, or if you want to volunteer in the community, then the Western Development Museum (WDM) can help make that connection. In conjunction with the Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW) and Moose Jaw Families for Change, the WDM is hosting a volunteer fair on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. the goal is to bring together Moose Jaw’s service clubs and non-profits in an effort to build on the municipality’s reputation as The Friendly City, according to a news release. “We are excited to host this event to bring the community together under one roof with a common goal,” said the volunteer fair committee.

The fair would offer a one-stop shop for residents to find organizations that need volunteers or members to help make the community a better place. This fair provides the chance to network and make new friends; chat with organizers and other volunteers; gain skills and abilities for a resumé; and help community groups enhance their programming. The CCRW is the lead partner on this project and will accept registrations until Friday, Oct. 18. Any groups or organizations interested in attending as a vendor are encouraged to fill out a form and return it by 4 p.m. by that day. Anyone interested in registering as an exhibitor is also encouraged to call the CCRW at 306-693-1761.

City Hall Council Notes Municipal reserves have generated $120M in interest since creation Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

More than $120 million in interest has been generated by the City of Moose Jaw’s reserves since the 1950s, which has kept taxes low and funded major capital projects. There was more than $88 million in the municipality’s reserve accounts last year, with the capital expenditure fund containing $60.7 million and the equipment reserve fund having $27.7 million. These two funds provide the framework for capital projects, from equipment acquisition to roadway replacement, sidewalk rehabilitation, and recreation renewal. The interest generated by the reserves comes in at just under $3.8 million each year, explained Brian Acker, director of financial services. A tax increase of roughly 13 per cent would be required to replace this amount. If it were possible to increase the rate of return by two per cent annually, an additional $2.9 million could be raised — or the equivalent of an additional 10 per cent in municipal taxation. Acker provided a presentation on the municipality’s reserve system and the purpose and amount contained within each account, during city council’s recent executive committee meeting. Council voted 6-1 on a recommendation to have city

administration develop a policy to establish existing reserve practices in a more permanent manner. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Financing projects The municipality has used a pay-as-yougo method to finance regular capital projects since the 1950s, Acker explained. The idea is it is better to save and earn interest than to borrow and pay interest. This way of paying is well suited for regular capital expenditure programs such as paved roads, sidewalks and other shortterm projects. This method also provides a framework that requires municipalities to live within their funding limitations. A drawback of using this financing method, however, is it does not do well for unforeseen or major infrastructure projects. These projects — such as the multiplex — would need to be completed in a short period of time and do not allow for funding to accumulate. Another drawback is this method relies on the interest earned on the reserves, which are subject to fluctuations in interest rates. “The City of Moose Jaw utilizes debt financing for non-routine capital expenditures of an urgent nature or capital proj-

ects of very large magnitude,” Acker said. An example of this, he pointed out, would be the wastewater treatment upgrade that cost $26.5 million. It was not possible to save up the necessary reserves in such a short time. Saving vs. borrowing Acker provided an example looking at how much a project worth $15 million would cost using pay-as-you-go or debt financing over a 15-year term. To use debt financing would eventually cost the municipality $19.6 million while using pay-as-you-go financing would cost $9.2 million, which is a difference of $10.4 million. Capital expenditure fund The capital expenditure fund serves several purposes. Its primary role is to provide an ongoing stream of funding to the non-utility portion of the capital budget — general reserve portion — annually. This fund is self-sustaining since the money is allowed to grow at the rate of inflation, where the remaining interest is used to fund a portion of the annual capital budget, Acker said. The fund maintains its income-generating power by allowing the real interest portion of interest earnings to flow to the general reserve

that is spent each year. “A secondary role of the capital expenditure fund is to provide financing for land development,” Acker said. Equipment reserve fund The ability of the equipment reserve to earn and accumulate interest significantly reduces the overall contribution for equipment replacement, Acker said. For example, a grader could have a lifespan of 15 years. Interest earned at six per cent during that time would generate $98,009, while contributions from the fund would be $151,991. If the equipment reserve did not exist and money had to be borrowed, it would cost city hall $276,171 to purchase a $250,000 grader. If city hall were to use some of the money accumulated for equipment replacement, it would lose interest revenue of $300,000 every year if, for example, $5 million was used for an initiative. Over a seven-year period that would translate into losing more than $2.5 million in interest. “This shortfall would ultimately need to be made up by the citizens of Moose Jaw,” Acker added. The next executive committee meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoeboxes to bring joy to kids Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Not every child is lucky enough to receive a Christmas gift, but the Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign aims to change that by bringing joy to kids’ lives. Volunteer Mary Ellen Willis helps co-ordinate the initiative in Moose Jaw and is dedicated to bringing hope and joy to children across the planet. “I’m addicted to Operation Christmas Child,” she laughed. “Once you see a kid get excited over a toothbrush, and you know the story behind it and you know what the journey of the shoebox has gone through … it catches you and you’re stuck with it. Not only is it blessing that kid, it blesses that family (and) the whole community.” Willis has delivered shoeboxes to children in Costa Rica and Ecuador over the years. She delivered a shoebox to a child in an orphanage one year and saw the excitement in the boy as he showed off his new toothbrush to the other 72 kids in the building. She has also seen how important it is to provide youths with pencils so they can go to school. She pointed out these simple aspects of life can be difficult for some North American kids to understand since they have everything. Willis spoke about the importance of the shoeboxes during the GO event campaign kick off at Victory Church on Oct. 3. She discussed what to put into the boxes — hygiene items, pencils, and personal stories about the person who packed it, for example — and what not to pack, and the fact people can create homemade boxes. There were also calls for volunteers to help pack the boxes during a “packing party” at Victory Church on Friday,

Oct. 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. There is also a packing party at Moose Jaw Alliance Church on Thursday, Oct. 10 from 2 to 4 p.m. The collection week for Operation Christmas Child is Nov. 18 to 24, with supporters able to drop off boxes at Victory Church on Main Street or at the Alliance Church on Neslia Place near Thatcher Drive. Boxes can also be picked up by calling 306-630-2581. During last year’s packing party at the church, volunteers packed 737 shoeboxes in three hours. In Moose Jaw overall, roughly 1,800 boxes were packed and shipped. Besides packing, there is the opportunity to travel to Calgary with Willis and a small team from Dec. 2 to 4 to help at the processing centre. Volunteers from across Canada look through the boxes and remove anything that is unsafe. They then replace the object with something more useful.

Volunteers fill tote bags with hygiene items that will then be placed in shoeboxes as part of Operation Christmas Child. Photo courtesy Mary Ellen Willis

Journey to Hope continues support of those affected by suicide More than $20,000 raised for suicide prevention programs Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When it comes to suicide in Canada, the numbers are as sobering as they are staggering. An average of 10 per day; close to 4,000 deaths a year, 90 per cent of which have a mental health problem or illness involved. A further 25 to 30 suicide attempts for every death. And for everyone who dies by suicide, between seven and 10 people are profoundly affected. The 12th annual Moose Jaw Journey to Hope took place on the morning of Sept. 28, with around 50 people taking part in the remembrance and awareness event at the Jones-Parkview Funeral Services chapel. Stories were heard about those who were lost to suicide and from others that had survived their own brushes with tragedy, and how finding help has changed their lives. That’s all part of the Journey’s ongoing mission, said event organizer Della Ferguson. “What’s most encouraging is that the conversation is happening, at a time when the stigma was so great; now

Journey to Hope participants hang their Soles for Hope on the Hope tree.

Journey to Hope volunteers light their cameras as Della Ferguson reads the role call of those lost to suicide.

we’re having that conversation and reaching out and asking for help and being real about where we’re at so we can get the resources we need to keep us where we’re at.” The community of Moose Jaw has been very supportive in this endeavour, with the fundraising totals at $21,828.85 as of Saturday afternoon, with all the funds going to suicide prevention and education programs. “There’s just so much work that needs to be done and a lot of training we can offer with that,” Ferguson said. “So we’re so grateful for the generosity of our community.” Some of the major donations are as varied as they are generous. Just as an example, South Hill Fine Foods sold over $600 worth of the Soles for Hope placards. The Southern Independent Riders Spring Poker Run brought in $1,000. And even a donor from Minnesota sent in $642. Then there are the ones who come through year in and year out. Like Cathie Bell and her family, who auctioned off a Dan Clark-signed Roughriders jersey in memory of Ray Bell for $2,069.

Or the beautiful dragonfly quilt donated by Joyce Aitken in memory of Gord Aitken that went for $2,118. And then there was Dawn Froats Row 2.0. A longtime local high-level athlete and coach, Froats held the first #MakeFroatsRow event last year, with $10 raised for every 100 metres she put in on a rowing machine. The end result was no less than 30,000 metres covered by herself and a further 30,000 by volunteers, raising a total of $6,000. That was meagre compared to 2019 where Froats herself covered 40,000 metres. That’s 40 kilometres, equivalent to travelling from Moose Jaw to Pense, on a rowing machine…by herself. Then her teammates stepped in and took it all the way to Balgonie, a further 50,000 metres. Froats and her team would raise $9,000 and over $15,000 the last two years. As incredible as that support is and as appreciative as the Journey to Hope is for the work so many people put in to help the cause, Ferguson would rather not have to do it at all. Because that would mean suicide is no longer an issue and that so many prob-

Journey to Hope participants could purchase and decorate pieces of a butterfly mosaic.

lems associated with it had been solved. “It’s bittersweet to be honest,” Ferguson said. “Most everyone in this room has had someone die by suicide, so they come here with such a passionate heart to see a difference and try and bring change so people won’t die in such desperate ways.” Journey to Hope recently joined with the Canadian Mental Health Association to hold a trio of suicide awareness, education and prevention problems earlier this week, with all three filled to capacity.

Three Moose Jaw males charged with armed assault, robbery Larissa Kurz

Three adult males from Moose Jaw have been arrested following a robbery and assault on Sept. 29 that left the victim with non-life-threatening injuries that required medical attention. According to the press release from the Moose Jaw Police Service, the victim was allegedly lured into a residence where several people assaulted him and stole his belongings, before preventing him from leaving and taking his vehicle. The victim was then driven out of

town later that day. On Sept. 30, MJPS took several suspects in the incident into custody after searching a residence on the 400 block of Athabasca St. E. and a residence on Chester Road. The victim’s vehicle was also later located in the possession of an adult male, resulting in another arrest. Scott Bobbett and Nicholas Connolly have been charged with unlawful confinement, robbery, and as-

sault with a weapon in relation to the incident, as well as numerous breach of court orders. Anesu Mafukidze has been charged with possession of stolen property worth over $5,000. All three men are Moose Jaw residents and knew the victim prior to the incident. Several other individuals were also taken into custody on unrelated charges and outstanding warrants, during the execution of the two search warrants. The MJPS are continuing to investigate the incident.

Golf-Travel Feature: Greywolf Golf Bruce Penton

It’s an 18-kilometre drive up a winding mountain road and the anticipation builds through every turn in the road. Finally, Greywolf Golf Course appears at the top of the mountain at Panorama, B.C., and the adventure is about to begin. And what an adventure! The 20-year-old course, part of a cluster of terrific tracks in the Invermere, B.C., area, should be on a must-play list for any golfer serious about the game. Mountain courses have a natural geographical advantage and course designer Doug Carrick did an exceptional job of shaping an outstanding golf course within the rocks, trees, creeks and mountain slopes with which he was presented. “It’s amazing how playable it is considering it’s built into a mountain,” said Justin Brown, director of golf at Greywolf. The course has a steady climb on the first three holes before the spectacular fourth, a steep downhill par-4 called “Descent.” By the sixth hole, you’re ready for a par-3, but this hole, the ‘Ciffhanger’, is no ordinary par-3. There’s no escaping a poorly struck tee shot. The 155-, 175- or 200-yard hole has a tee box and a green and nothing but a tree- and rock-filled canyon in between. A couple of years ago, the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey offered golfers a chance to play a simulation of the hole. “We know that Cliffhanger draws a lot of people and it should, because it is one of the best golf holes I’ve ever played,” general manager Dane Thorogood of Totem Golf, said in a Calgary Sun interview. Totem Golf has owned Greywolf’

The picturesque sixth hole at Greywolf — called Cliffhanger — is the signature hole at the mountainous golf course at Panorama, B.C. Photo by Bruce Penton since 2013. “I can’t think of a hole like it anywhere in the world,” Thorogood said. A number of positive changes at Greywolf have been made since the ownership change, said Brown. A new, 6,000-sq.-ft. clubhouse/restaurant was built, replacing an ATCO trailer, offering a “more fitting image for this calibre of course,” he said. The new owners also improved course drainage, paved all the cart paths and undertook a project (currently under way) to build 12 new forward tee boxes that will provide an option for guests to play the

course from about 4,600 yards. The Panorama Mountain Resort also offers about 500 condo units, providing a number of stay-and-play options for visitors. While Greywolf provides a true challenge to golfers of all skill levels, a four-hour trip around the course is memorable — good golf or bad. “The scenery is what blows them away,” said Brown. Don’t just take Brown’s word for it. ScoreGolf’s ranking of every golf course in Canada has Greywolf at No. 15. The same publication’s ranking of public courses (the Top 59, which uses value as one of the criteria) slots Greywolf in at No. 5 — behind only the two Cabot courses in Cape Breton (Cliffs and Links), and the national park courses in Jasper and Banff. “That’s pretty good company,” said Brown. Brown said all the changes the new owners have made since 2013 “have paid off.” The short season at Greywolf runs from around the first of May to early October, but Brown said “just shy of 20,000 rounds” will be played in 2019. And as word spreads around the world about the beauty and playability of Greywolf, that number should continually rise to mountains-peak levels. If you go, by car it’s about a three-hour, 30-minute drive from Calgary along gorgeous mountain highways — first the Trans-Canada though Banff National Park and then via B.C. Highway 93 through Kootenay National Park.

New season ahead for former Ackerman rink teammates Canada Winter Games banner unveiled during Curl Moose Jaw Champions Dinner Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Curl Moose Jaw Championship Dinner was a bittersweet moment for the Skylar Ackerman junior curling foursome. The event marked the last time members of the original incarnation of the Ackerman rink – skip Skylar, third Madison Johnson, second Chantel Hoag and lead Samantha McLaren – would be at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre in an official capacity, as the event marked the unveiling of their Canada Winter Games provincial championship banner. Skylar, Chantel and coach Patrick Ackerman were on hand for the presentation, with sadness to part and excitement for the future, a theme for both players. “There have been a lot of changes, I’m taking kinesiology in University and we have a new team, we’re curling out of the Nutana Club in Saskatoon,” Ackerman explained. “It’ll be a busy schedule this season, but it’s well worth it for all the fun we have in school and on the ice, we’re excited for the season.” In fact, Ackerman and her new team of third Emily Haupstein, second Taylor Stremick and lead Abbey Johnson couldn’t have asked for a better start – the foursome took first place in the Under 21 Big Sky Slam tournament during the Sept. 12 weekend, going 7-1 through the weekend before defeating long-time rival Ashley Thevenot in the championship final.

Coach Patrick Ackerman, Skylar Ackerman and Chantel Hoag were on hand during the Curl Moose Jaw champions banquet for the unveiling of their Canada Games provincial championship banner. “We’d practiced together once, but we’ve known each other for a long time and we’re all friends off the ice, so it’s really nice to have that first win together,” Ackerman said. “It gives us a lot of confidence, because when you’re a new team you never know how you’re going to do, so to win the first time we played was really good.” Ackerman was back on the ice the last weekend of September during the Colonial Square Ladies Classic in Saskatoon, their first World Curling Tour event.

They posted a 1-4 record – including a 7-1 loss to Moose Jaw’s own Amber Holland in their opening game – and plan to hit a few more stops on the WCT this season leading up to junior provincials and ideally beyond. Hoag, meanwhile, has had an interesting summer of her own. In addition to forming a new team herself, the 16-year-old Gravelbourg product has been selected as an alternate for the Youth Olympics in Switzerland. While she won’t get a chance to make the

trip overseas unless injury or illness occurs prior to the Games, she will be a part of the team in all the activities leading up including high-level training sessions. “It’s called the Next Generation Camp, and people that have gone to nationals and worlds and all that jazz meet at one place and train,” explained Hoag, who will be travelling to Edmonton in November for the first such event. “So I still get all the bells and whistles of being on the team… it’s a really great opportunity and I’m excited to have a chance to be a part of it all.” The selection process saw Hoag apply for a position on the team – the Olympics are a mixed format, with two girls and two boys on each rink – and write an essay, after which coaches and scouts kept an eye on her performance throughout the past year. “There are a lot of guys and girls who apply to be a Youth Olympian, so just to get that call is awesome,” she said. The Youth Olympics run from Jan. 10 to 22 in Lausanne, Switzerland. The Championship Dinner also honoured the club and provincial championship winners from the past year, including Ackerman and Saskatchewan Legion provincial champions Barry Silk, Chris Hibbin, Kevin deDelley and Kevin Edwards.

Original 16 Cash League kicks off new season

Defending champion BTN Chartered Accountants among winners on opening night Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

A new season is officially underway for the Original 16 Cash League, and the first night of competition at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre saw some familiar names emerge victorious. Leading the way were defending champion BTN Chartered Accountants (Danille Sicinski) as they rolled to an 8-4 victory over newcomer Noyes (Cindy Simmons). Sicinski held a 4-3 lead through four ends before taking control of the game with three in the fifth end. The two teams exchanged points in the sixth and seventh and Simmons ran out of rocks in the eighth. There were a handful of close games on the night, with KMS (Ben Gamble) taking a 7-6 extra end victory over John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk). Things started out well for Wenarchuk, as deuces in the second and fourth led to him building a 5-1 lead. Wenarchuk led 6-3 heading into the seventh when Gamble staged his rally, picking up a pair that end and stealing one to tie the game 6-6 and then stealing another in the extra end to secure the win. Tax Team (Murray Stroeder) earned one of the more unique victories in their opener with Ackerman Ag (Patrick Ackerman), as they scored points in only two ends but still won 6-5. That’s because five of those points came in the third end and gave him a 5-0 lead. Acker-

man chipped away at it, though, taking one in the fourth, stealing another in the fifth and two more in the sixth to close to within one. A blank in the seventh set things up for yet another steal in the eighth to tie the game 5-5. Stroeder was finally able to use the hammer to his advantage in the extra end, though, picking up his single point to take the victory. Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais) didn’t need an extra end in their 8-7 win over Matt Froehlich, but things were plenty close nonetheless. Desjarlais started out exceptionally well, with three in the first and two in the third giving him a 5-2 lead through three ends. Cue the comeback, as Froehlich would pick up points the next three: single markers in the fourth and fifth pulled him to within one at the fifth-end break before a three-spot put him ahead 7-5 through six. Desjarlais wouldn’t go quietly, though, scoring one in the seventh to pull within one and then stealing two in the final end for the victory. Barb Wallace emerged victorious in a battle of single points against Easy Care Living (Lorraine Arguin), as she scored one in each of the first three ends to lead 3-0, Arguin took one in each of the next two to close to 3-2 and Wallace closed things out with singles in the sixth and seventh for a 5-2 win.

Walchuk Masonry (Ralph Courtnage) took the most commanding victory of the night with an 11-1 win over Forged 365 (Donna Ackerman). Courtnage led 3-1 through three ends but went on a steal tear from there with two in the fourth, three in the fifth and three more in the sixth to close out the contest. Paws N Play (David Gray) wasted no time in his match with EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis), roaring out to an 8-0 lead after a deuce in the first end and three-spots the next two. Gunnis would get right back into it with four of his own in the fourth and a steal of one in the fifth, but would shake hands when Gray scored one in the sixth to restore his four-point lead and win 9-5. Protec Video (Wade Gray) also got off to a fast start against Main Street Strength and Conditioning (Jazmin Ackerman), scoring four in the first and three in the second for a quick 7-0 lead. After Ackerman got two back in the third, Gray scored single points in three straight ends to make it 10-2 before Ackerman scored the final points of the game in the seventh to make the final scored 10-4. Original 16 Cash League action continues every Wednesday night at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.

Fourth-quarter rally leads Central past Weyburn Vincent rushes for four touchdowns, 342 yards in 30-16 Cyclones win Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

In the Saskatchewan Rural Football League, Ryan Vincent carried 29 times for 342 yards and four touchdowns –-- including three in the fourth quarter – for the Central Cyclones as the Cyclones took a 30-16 victory over the Eagles at Gutheridge Field this past weekend. Central needed every one of those yards, too: Weyburn proved to be anything but an easy out, as they used a bruising running game of their own to take a 13-9 lead into the half. That included an eight-minute drive through the first quarter that culminated in a three-yard touchdown run for Austin Knupp. The Weyburn running back would add a second touchdown with 9:58 to go in the second quarter, with Central’s only points coming off a 61-yard run immediately after Knupp’s second score and a safety with 37 seconds to go until halftime. Things changed in the second half. Vincent said, “It was a real team effort, it was all about having all 12 guys doing a

job and I was just the guy holding the ball. That’s what it comes down to, effort, and because it was there we were able to come back in the second half.” Vincent would record 216 yards rushing in the second half alone, including touchdown runs of six, 25 and 29 yards in the fourth quarter to key the rally. “To me it was 340 yards as a team, I wouldn’t have had a chance to do it without everyone else playing as well as they were in front of me,” Vincent said. The turnaround was helped by the Cyclones largely cleaning up an ugly run of penalties and miscues that included a goalline interception late in the first half. “It’s kind of the struggle we’ve had this year with our younger team, we’re going to have those mistakes,” Cyclones head coach Colin Belsher said. “We made a lot of them, and it seems like when we get rolling we find a way to make a mistake the other team capitalizes. “But it’s a character builder and I thought the kids overcame those mistakes in the

Central’s Ryan Vincent finds the open field on his way to a long gain. second half, dug deep and when you put the ball in one of your best player’s hands, you’re going to see good things happen. That front line was blocking really well during the fourth quarter and that gave him some room to run.” Central finished with 376 yards of offence, 358 of it on the ground.

Weyburn’s Elias West battles Central’s Kaleb Schanoski for a high pass. Both teams are on the road on Thursday, Oct. 10 as Central travels to Estevan and Weyburn is in Yorkton.

Vanier takes high school football win over Peacock Late touchdown leads to 18-13 victory for Vikings Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

In the Saskatchewan Rural Football League this season, Peacock seemed to be the favourite heading into the match-up against Vanier on Saturday at Gutheridge Field but the game got interesting. The Vikings had yet to win a game this season and were coming off a 35-0 loss to Estevan. The Tornadoes, meanwhile, were sitting with a 2-2 record and looking to keep pace with the league leaders. Connor Lamb scored the go-ahead touchdown on an 18yard run with 1:14 to play and the Vikings held off Peacock the rest of the way to take an 18-13 victory in one of the largest upsets in recent league history. Lamb, who finished the game with four carries for 36 yards and one catch for 11. said, “It could have gone both ways the whole game, it was really hard fought.” Xander Montgomery opened scoring for Vanier with a six-yard touchdown run with six minutes to play in the first quarter. The rest of the half was all Peacock, though, as they would score a safety in the opening minutes of the second quarter before Jude Tysdal-Fall recorded a rouge with 4:09 remaining and added a rushing major with 1:57 Vanier’s Maxim Duchesne (30) goes up for a late-game interception alongside teammate Brydon Bell (21). until the break to put the Tornadoes ahead 10-6. The two teams would settle into a stalemate the majority of the third quarter before Montgomery scored on a Vanier head coach Ryan Gottselig said, “We made the two-yard run with 2:27 remaining to put Vanier up 12-10 plays late that we needed to make for a change and it was heading into the final frame. He’d finish with 25 carries awesome. I’m so proud of these guys.” for 108 yards. Those late plays included a fumble recovery by Brydon Tysdal-Fall would hit a field goal 7:20 to play to give Pea- Bell on Peacock’s second-last drive in the final minute as cock a 13-12 lead, setting the stage for Lamb’s late-game well as a couple of deep pass knockdowns as the Tornaheroics. does ran a pair of late Hail Marys.



The win was especially heartening for the Vikings given how the young squad has been through a trying season thus far. For their part, the Tornadoes were in less than ideal form coming into the game. Personnel issues had left them scrambling in skill positions – running back Kayde Shymko was sidelined due to a suspension, quarterback Kyle Yamnuik was battling a hip flexor injury that limited his ability to run. That led to a bunch of players taking the field in new positions, as head coach Bert Redstone would explain. “Matt Cunningham comes over and plays fullback, had never played it in his life,” he said. “Hayes Mealing comes over and backs up the fullback spot, never played it in his life. Jude Tysdal-Fall comes over and plays running back, had never played that before. Hayden Tollefson had to take some snaps at running back, Davin Miller had to take some snaps at quarterback and had never played there before. So that was our install this week, and wow, what effort. So kudos to those guys for stepping up the way they did.” Redstone wasn’t about to let that land as the sole reason for their loss, though, and was quick to give the Vikings credit for their performance. Vanier improved to 1-3 with the win, Peacock fell to 2-3. The Vikings are back in action on Thursday, Oct. 10 as they host the Swift Current Colts (4 p.m., Gutheridge Field), while Peacock has a bye week and are back on the field Oct. 19 against Weyburn.

Warriors shut out Pats

Brkin records second shut-out, Hardy scores in debut as Warriors win 3-0 Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

For the local squad and the entire Western Hockey League through the first few weeks of the season, seeing a zero on the scoreboard at the end of the game for the Moose Jaw Warriors has almost become normal. Bailey Brkin turned aside 19 shots for his second shutout of the season – and 12th in the WHL this year – as the Warriors took a 3-0 victory over the Regina Pats at Mosaic Place on Sunday afternoon. Just as remarkable is the fact the Warriors had only four shutouts all last season and now have a pair in their first six games of 2019-20. “We limited their scoring chances and we did that the last two times we played them,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter of the latest clean sheet. “They had a lot of shots from up around the blueline but not a lot from around home plate. So the guys are starting to buy in and figure it out, what we’re supposed to do in those areas. And obviously Bailey is a very good goalie, but he didn’t have a lot of grade A scoring chances tonight. “It was a team effort, a shut-out is always a team effort and those guys probably ran out of gas in the end.” The contest was the third in three nights for Regina while the Warriors were coming off a week-long break. Moose Jaw improved to 4-1-0-0 on the season and sit two points back of Prince Albert for first in the East Division. Regina fell to 1-6-0-0 and are in last place in the Eastern Conference. Owen Hardy got things started for the Tribe, knocking a Pats defender off the puck at the Regina blueline and going in all alone before putting a shot five-hole on Max Paddock. The goal came on Hardy’s first shot as a War-

Carson Denomie scored on the power play just over a minute later to put the Warriors ahead 2-0 before Eric Alarie scored with 3:12 left in the frame to close out scoring. Moose Jaw would outshoot Regina 12-1 in the first period but were outshot 11-3 in the second. Final shots were 25-19 for the Tribe.

Warriors goaltender Bailey Brkin had plenty of help around the net as he recorded his second shutout. The Warriors were 1-for-9 on the power play, Regina was 0-for-4. Things pick up quickly schedule-wise for the Warriors going forward as they host Edmonton on Wednesday, Oct. 9 and Vancouver on Friday, Oct. 11 before travelling to Prince Albert.

Rhett Gardner makes NHL debut Moose Jaw Express Staff

Rhett Gardner has become the latest Moose Jaw Minor Hockey product to play in the National Hockey League. The 23-year-old former Moose Jaw Generals and University of North Dakota

standout was called up by the Dallas Stars on Friday and played his first NHL game on Saturday afternoon in St. Louis against the defending Stanley Cup champion Blues. Gardner was selected by Dallas in the


fourth round, 116th overall in the 2016 Entry Draft. After a stellar career with UND came to an end this past March, Gardner signed a two-year deal with the Stars and immediately reported to the Texas Stars, Dallas’ American Hockey League affiliate. There, he scored four goals and five points in 11 games before turning in a solid showing during Dallas Stars training camp this fall.

With a recent spate of injuries to the likes of Corey Perry, Blake Comeau and Martin Hanzal, the Stars decided to call up the 6-foot-3, 225-pound centre and put his stellar defensive skills to use. Gardner saw 18 shifts for a total of 12:04 of ice time in the in the contest as the Blues went on to a 3-2 victory. Wearing #49, he would also record a hit and a takeaway while winning 33 per cent of his face-offs.

Prairie Hockey Academy Elite 15s take weekend split with Edge PHA wins opener 5-4 in overtime, fall 5-2 in rematch Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Prairie Hockey Academy Elite 15 hosted Calgary-based Edge School for Athletes for a pair of Canadian Sport School Hockey League games this past weekend at Barkman Arena in Caronport, taking a 5-4 overtime win in their opener Saturday, Oct. 5 before falling 5-2 in the rematch the following morning. The opening contest was pretty much as back-and-forth as a hockey game can be. Carter Wickenheiser gave the Cougars a 1-0 lead in the first period, only to see Edge score four straight in the second, including three goals in the first five minutes of the period. PHA wouldn’t go easily, though, as McKale Paul and Jed Maggarrell scored in the first five of the third before Daxton Lang tied the game with 1:50 to play. That set the stage for McLaren Paulsen to come through as the overtime hero as he scored with 2:49 left in overtime to secure the win. “It was a lot of character, a lot of heart,” Abbott said. “We let them get up on us in the second period there, they came at us hard and got four quick ones but we took it to them in the third period and managed to get a couple in and McLaren scored a nice one in overtime.” Bodee Weiss picked up the win and was outstanding in goal, turning aside 47 shots including 21 in the second period alone. The Cougars had 23 total.

Dorothy McFadden and Neta VanIderstine Rhett Briltz goes hard to the net against Edge but wouldn’t be able to find the back of the net. There would be no comeback the following morning, as Tate Schofer’s power-play goal would be all the offence PHA could muster until late in the third period. By that time, Edge had a 5-1 lead, with Magarrell scoring a consolation marker with 4:14 to play. Dazza Mitchell made 35 saves in the Cougars goal. “It’s a tough league and a tough division,” Abbott said. “There’s not much that separates the top 10 teams in this league other than work and who wants it more and who wins the one-on-one battles and who is going to sit back and watch the other team. So we’ll build on this weekend and come out better next time.” Prairie Hockey Academy is now 4-1-1-0 on the season and sit in second place in the CSSHL Elite 15 division.

Penalty trouble sinks AAA Warriors in loss to Blazers Saskatoon scores three third-period goals on way to 3-1 win Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw AAA Warriors are on a learning curve this season; finding that taking a lot of penalties cost the hockey game. Atley Calvert scored the Warriors’ lone goal in the second period against the Saskatoon Blazers and gave the Tribe a 1-0 lead heading into the final frame of their Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League contest on Saturday afternoon, only to see the Saskatoon score three unanswered goals on their way to a 3-1 win. “Two of the three games now we’ve probably taken three-to-one in penalties and today it cost us,” said Warriors head coach Trevor Weisgerber. “We’ve addressed it already and we’ve talked about so hopefully we can clean that up.” The Warriors fell to 1-2-0-0 on the season, Saskatoon improved to 4-1 While the penalty numbers weren’t overly extravagant – the Warriors took seven minors, Saskatoon three – the timing of the penalties was concerning, often breaking up stretches where the local squad had gained a bit of momentum. The worst came with 6:15 to play, though, when Ryan Conlon scored the eventual game-winning goal on the man advantage. “They’re an older team and they have that composure, but it comes back to the penalties,” Weisgerber said. “If you’re taking that many penalties they’re going to get one. So that’s disappointing, but five-on-five we played very well and we were fine, we just have to stay out of the penalty box… If we minimize our penalties, we don’t have any issues, I think we match up well with other teams.” Chase Coward made 28 saves for the Warriors, while WHL Warriors prospect Brett Mirwald made 17 saves for the Blazers. Moose Jaw will now have a week off before returning to the ice next Saturday for a pair of weekend contests against the Battlefords Stars. Game times are 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13.

Warriors make trio of roster moves

Tribe add Homola from Tri-City, trade Stepanov to Prince Albert, release Sanders Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors had a bit of a different look when they took the ice against the Regina Pats on Sunday afternoon. The Western Hockey League squad announced late Saturday night that they had made a trio of roster moves, including a shake-up in their import player situation. The Warriors claimed 18-year-old defenceman David Homola off import waivers from the Tri-City Americans in addition to sending second-year veteran forward Daniil Stepanov to the Prince Albert Raiders for a ninth-round pick in 2023. The team also announced they had released 18-year-old defenceman Matthew Sanders. “Homola is a good addition to our hockey club,” said

Warriors general manager Alan Millar in a press release. “He is a solid, puck moving defenceman, who has good puck skills and good hockey sense. David played well for the Czech Republic at last year’s Hlinka Gretzky Under 18 championships in Edmonton. “I’d also like to thank both Daniil and Matt for their time with our hockey club. Both are first class young men and we wish them all the best,” Millar added. Homola, 6-foot-0 and 175 pounds, hails from Nove Mesto na Morave, Czech Republic and was selected 91st overall in the 2019 CHL Import Draft. He played two games with Tri-City, picking up a single assist. Last season with HC Ocelari Trinec U19 in the Czech Republic, Homola scored four times and picked up 18 points in 47 games.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith

Hidden Treasures Cucumbers and tomatoes are the two favorite garden veggies I look forward to harvesting and eating. There is absolutely no store-bought veggie that compares to simple, home-grown goodness we reap from our gardens. The pure, wholesome taste of plants tended with love and watered with gentle rains is better than candy; I don’t think I could ever eat too many cucumbers, the allstar vegetable in my garden. I tend my cukes with care; ensuring they are watered regularly and have good support as they climb the hand-crafted windmill Big Sweet Pea acquired a couple years ago. This year, many gardeners across our province said their cucumber plants struggled to produce fruit. For some reason, it seems this was the year that male blooms were prolific and the female blooms were scant. I planted 1 long English plant at each corner of the windmill but it wasn’t until early September that I saw steady results. After the widespread rain and then the heat, I enjoyed a good harvest of cucumbers before the snow and frost. As I was checking my plants one breath-taking Saskatchewan morning, I noticed there was an overgrown cucumber hiding among the leaves. How could I have missed it? This is not the first time. Even though I carefully inspect the plant for fruit, it seems I still miss some of the treasures. As I pondered this, God reminded me that He has treasures hidden for us. He doesn’t hide them from us; they are discoverable all along. However, we need to take the time to search for them. I admit I don’t always want to dig for the treasure God has hidden for His children. I can default to the quick, microwaveable drive-thru mentality and not take the time to discover all that is available for me but God reminds us to “...taste and see that (He) the Lord is good.” The more we feast on His Word and sit in His presence; communing with Him, the deeper we will go. We will find the gems hidden deep within the pages of the Word of God and fellowship with His Spirit. You and I need to move past head knowledge and allow our heart to open up and receive from Him. “I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.” Proverbs 18:7 The believer’s life is not to be one of striving but it is to be about developing a living relationship in which we communicate throughout the day and night. These do not need to be spoken-aloud prayers of rote. He considers the inner motives of the heart. Even in meditation, the word” sigh” in Hebrew means a dull tone or low sound. It is the condition of our heart not our outward expression that He is looking for. Have you heard that story of the little boy who was asked by his mom to sit down? He finally complied but he told her he was sitting down on the outside but he was standing up on the inside. It is a cute story but in reality, this little boy was not submitting in obedience to her wishes because his heart was not in compliance. Just as this little boy, we may be giving all the outward signs of obedience but only God knows what is going on inside. This week, let’s seek God’s heart and discover His deep treasures as we take time to lean in and listen to His heart.

Homeowner Bob Bellamy installed solar panels on his roof in 2017 and has reduced his electrical costs substantially, to the point where he generates more power than he produces. Photo submitted

Homeowner hopeful SaskPower solar program continues Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Homeowner Bob Bellamy’s rooftop solar system has been hooked into SaskPower’s net metering program since May 2017, so he was disappointed to hear the program is being shelved indefinitely. “It’s not going to be positive for the province (or) solar industry,” Bellamy told the Moose Jaw Express. Due to unprecedented customer demand, SaskPower is expected to reach the 16-megawatt (MW) capacity limit for the program soon, which is two years ahead of the initial expectation of Nov. 30, 2021, the Crown corporation said in a news release. Since this past July, the average size of applications into the net metering program has increased by 80 per cent. “We have seen a dramatic increase in uptake in the program in recent weeks, driven in part by federal funding that applies to large net metering projects,” Mike Marsh, SaskPower president and CEO. “Going forward we will (not accept new applications and will) be reviewing the program to ensure it remains financially sustainable and continues to meet the needs of our customers and our company.” The net metering program offers rebates for solar installations and premium credits for surplus power. This makes it among the most generous net metering programs in Canada, the news release said. Net metering allows customers to generate up to 100 kilowatts of power — typically solar — to decrease their monthly power bills and receive credit for the excess power they generate. Bellamy thought that with so much demand from Sas-

katchewan residents to use the program, SaskPower could do away with the rebates and simply allow residents to continue to hook up to the net metering program. He pointed out Saskatchewan has the highest electrical fees in Canada, at 14 cents per kilowatt hour. In comparison, Manitoba’s fees are six cents per kilowatt hour. “Finding cheaper ways to produce the electricity to me makes perfect sense,” he added. If the program were to continue in its current form, the financial effect on the Crown corporation would be roughly $54 million per year by 2025, according to SaskPower spokesman Joel Cherry. Even if the program dropped the rebate, SaskPower would still lose money on it. Homeowners who generate their own power and use the program are not paying their share for the overall maintenance of the power grid, even though they are connected to it, he added. Moreover, these small-sized installations cost more for SaskPower than larger-sized operations such as solar farms. There will be another net metering program in place for SaskPower customers within weeks, Dustin Duncan, minister responsible for SaskPower, said days after the initial announcement. He said he was not prepared to wait half a year for SaskPower to decide on a new program. In fact, he hopes a new program is in place by the end of October. Bellamy has had a positive view of the solar panels on his roof ever since he installed them more than two years ago. That was actually the last time his household paid for electricity usage; the panels he also installed on top of his business have reduced his power consumption there by 50 per cent. He now pays only a small fee to SaskPower to access the grid. The panels save him $200 month on home power bills and about $400 per month on electricity costs at his work. With the amount of surplus power his panels generate and the fact he has reduced his power usage, Bellamy intends to purchase an electric vehicle in the future.

BRUSE, LOUISE Our beautiful mother took her final breath, peacefully, and exactly where she wanted to be—at home, surrounded by her children. Louise Helen Bruse (née LaRocque) was born August 7, 1931, in Birsay, SK, the youngest of 14 children. She passed away on Friday, October 4, 2019, at the age of 88, on the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Mom moved to Moose Jaw as a teenager where she spent the remainder of her life. She married John Bruse in 1953 and took great pride and joy in being a wife, homemaker and mother to eight children. Mom will be fondly remembered for her witty sense of humour, easy manner and generous heart. She loved to knit, cook and bake for her family and is famous for her coveted knitted socks and slippers, her cabbage rolls and perogies, and, of course, her homemade cinnamon buns. Our mother always opened her home and her heart to the laughter and company of extended family and friends and also enjoyed the companionship of generations of family pets, particularly her faithful dog, Winston. Mom’s strong Catholic faith, which she gifted to her children and exemplified on a daily basis, strengthened her in all her life’s tribulations. This was especially true in her last days of life when she was enveloped in song and her favourite prayers, the Rosary and The Divine Mercy Chaplet. Louise is predeceased by her beloved husband of 45 years, John (1998); her infant daughters, Nedra and Colette; 13 brothers and sisters; and several nieces and nephews. She is survived by her 8 children, Jane, Laura (Gary), Paul (Andra), Delia (Norman), Norma (Michael), Clara, Lydia, Corinne (Dan); 19 grandchildren, Brynn (Erin), Jennifer (Travis), Tyler, Moirae, Jordan (Jess), Marni, John, Daniel, Monica, Ben (Bea), Ava, Brett, Jesse, Levi, Daniela, Antonio, Preston (Sara), Kelci (Luke), Keegan; and 8 greatgrandchildren, Gracie, Ruby, Jameya, Vienna, Castle, Tori, Golden and Tiger. Louise was easy to love and loved easily. “If [we] know what love is, it’s because of you.” - Hermann Hesse The words of St. Francis of Assisi embody the life and memory of Louise, “Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received—only what you have given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.” The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, October 10, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. at Church of Our Lady, 566 Vaughan Street, Moose Jaw. Interment immediately to follow at Rosedale Cemetery. Very Reverend Father Stefano Penna of Saskatoon will be the celebrant. A luncheon reception will be served in the church hall. A Prayer Service will be held on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at Church of Our Lady. In lieu of flowers, donations in Louise’s name may be made to SCRAPS Moose Jaw, PO Box 1653 Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7 or to the Church of Our Lady Building Fund, 566 Vaughan Street Moose Jaw, S6H 6L3.

Agrivoltaics is a new term and method of EXPRESS growing being tested in agriculture. A University of Arizona professor coined the term for work he is doing with farming and solar energy panels. The work involves planting crops under the photovoltaic solar panel farm. The only modification required is to raise the panels about 10 feet so farm equipment can work under them.



This reduces rates of evaporation from irrigated waters, but plants “don’t get as stressed out.� Direct sunlight on the plants is cut by 75 per cent but there is so much diffused light they grow well. Agrivoltaic trials so far involve about 1,770 square feet. Bigger area installations are in development. The trials grow beans, tomatoes, peppers, herbs and spices.

Evaporation from the crops helps cool the solar panels. Panels don’t perform their best when too hot. Barron-Gifford believes increased yields and water savings will pay for cost of steel to raise the solar panels. Ron Walter can be reached at
