Five newcomers inducted into Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame Cormier, Johnston, McGeary, Thiessen,Tollefson officially enshrined Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame held their annual induction celebration on Saturday night, officially enshrining five new members on the Wall of Fame at Mosaic Place. Wayne Cormier played an integral role in the development of Special Olympics powerlifting in Moose Jaw, creating a team that would dominate meets and win titles every time they stepped on the platform. Over 100 athletes passed through his tutelage, winning provincial, national and even international competitions. Roy Thiessen was heavily involved in coaching from the late50s right into the early 80s, working with volleyball, track, golf, cross-country and softball programs. He was mostly known for his work with curling, with many of his players and teams putting together impressive results at the high school and provincial and even national levels. Bill Johnston is the legendary builder behind the formation of the Highway Hockey League (mid-60s), Saskatchewan Junior ‘B’ Hockey League (1992) and the man who helped officially form the Western Major Baseball League (2000) in addition to working as a referee both nationally and internationally. Larry Tollefson was as one of the best players to ever suit up for

the legendary Moose Jaw Regals teams of the 1960s. Described as a tough, fiercely competitive athlete who commanded the respect of his teammates and opponents alike, he played 13 years in the Southern Baseball League, leading the Regals to seven league titles while being named the top catcher and a league all-star six times. The Terry McGeary senior men’s curling team, which included Clare Ramsay, Don Berglund and Hillis Thompson, won the 1980 Canadian Senior Men’s Curling Championship in dramatic fashion, rolling through the round robin with a 9-2 record, including wins in their final two games, to edge Manitoba for the title. All five had their portraits and stories installed on the Wall – located on the second floor concourse in Mosaic Place – earlier this year, with Saturday night’s banquet featuring the official induction. Be sure to keep an eye on and the Moose Jaw Express for full features on the newest members of the Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame over the coming weeks!

Peacock open house showcasing collection of school memorabilia Larissa Kurz

The Archive Room at A.E. Peacock Collegiate is home to some incredible artifacts, some of which date back 100 years and all of which tell the history of Moose Jaw schools. Principal Dustin Swanson detailed the impressive list of items currently housed in the display, ranging from antique desks and old readers, to sweaters from the 1940s, to sports trophies and team photos. A whole cabinet houses photos from all the schools in the city, past and present, dating from the 1890s up to the 1980s. Binders full of photos include class pictures, snapshots of building construction and demolition days, and tons of other moments in time. Teaching supplies, some of which are no

The display cases are home to memorabilia from various sports teams over the years.

longer used in schools today, are also on display — things like relief maps from the 1910s and 20s, that are partially three-dimensional in their topography. “There’s lots of kinds of items like that; lots of school items that may conjure up some memories — maybe good or bad, I don’t know,� laughed Swanson. The collection even features a gold-plated cane that was given to William Grayson for his time on the school board, as well as the Order of Canada given to A.E. Peacock in 1977 and a signed letter from Winston Churchill acknowledging the statue of him built outside of A.E. Peacock Collegiate. Prairie South School Division has been collecting the memorabilia for about 20 years, previously housing it in a temporary classroom at the division until it was moved to Peacock. “It’s a diverse mix of artifacts and furniture, and I think it’s a really great opportunity for those interested in the history of the schools here,� said Swanson. “A lot of this stuff tends to get lost, and so we’re really looking to preserve this history.� Swanson also pointed out that the Moose Jaw School Division was the first established in the province, making some of the schools here a large part of education history. Victoria School, for example, was the first school officially opened in Saskatchewan. The Archives Room was recently reorga-

The open house, running from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 24, is the first public event Peacock has hosted to show off the Archive Room, although it’s not as though the collection is under lock and key. “We know that those hours might not work for everybody,� said Swanson. “And so we are more than willing to open it up [for people to view], if they come in during school hours as well.� Photographs will be on display for people to flip through, some of which are undated, and so Swanson hopes maybe the public can supply some of that missing information. “I think for a lot of Moose Jaw people, just seeing the old photographs is interesting. Until people started putting things up on Facebook, those pictures were invisible,� said Swanson. “Some people are going to recognize relatives or maybe themselves in these photos, and that’s our hope, is to reclaim and know a bit more about the history of some of this stuff.�

A.E. Peacock’s principal Dustin Swanson pulled out one of the many relief maps, used in the 1920s. Swanson also noted that the collection would be open to expanding if there are any items floating around that the community would be willing to donate. The Archive Room is located on the main floor of the building, across from the office, and visitors are encouraged to use the main doors when they stop in.

Working and Learning Together MLA’s Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

Saskatchewan dedicates one full week every year to celebrate student success and recognize the dedication and commitment of education professionals across the province. Most of us remember someone from our school days who made a positive impression that influenced us for life. Perhaps it was a teacher, but maybe it was maintenance staff, the office administrator, a bus driver, or a volunteer coach; someone who inspired us by their actions or encouraging words. We celebrate those important people during this Education Week in Saskatchewan. This year’s Education Week theme – Working and Learning Together – highlights the important collaborative relationships that strengthen our education system. As students, educators, support staff, parents, caregivers, Elders, community members and stakeholders, we build meaningful relationships that lead us to growth and understanding. Our Saskatchewan education system is dedicated to seeing every child reach their full potential. Having a community working together makes achieving that goal possible. The dedication and expertise of our Saskatchewan teachers and education staff are phenomenal, but the support of our whole community allows them to do their job better. We see students in Moose Jaw involved outside the classroom in many ways. High school football and school volleyball are in our local sports news these days. Those on athletic teams are gaining the valuable life skills learned through sport. Music and drama programs will be offering entertainment to our community in the coming months by students taking pride in the arts. I have seen exposure to the arts happening through the

Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils school program. Performers tour the schools across the province, educating the students in a captivating way. I recently attended a juggling act by Greg Kennedy. This former engineer was very entertaining, and at the same time demonstrated many of the principles of science and physics. Just since school started, students have taken part in the Habitat for Humanity Colour Run, the Terry Fox Run, Journey to Hope and serving at the Riverside Mission banquet. Schools will be participating in the Farm Credit Canada Drive Away Hunger food drive. Lindale School hosted a community Thanksgiving meal. This participation helps our students see the importance and benefits of community involvement. Behind all these worthwhile activities are dedicated staff and community members supporting student involvement. Every school in Saskatchewan is mandated to have a School Community Council. These volunteers work behind the scenes and often go unnoticed. They offer their time and talent to bring forward an understanding of the community’s needs and objectives. They are an integral part of developing the School Level Plan. Feedback from the Moose Jaw community was a vital consideration in the choice of location for the new jointuse school to be constructed on South Hill. It’s exciting to watch this project move forward, the most recent development being the announcement that it will be built in Westheath. Educating our children takes a community effort. Our government recognizes it is a priority for the people of Saskatchewan. That’s why we have invested in more teaching and support staff, increased funding and new schools. I have a tremendous appreciation for those who work in our schools. Students come into our classrooms with many individual needs, and day after day, with the support of the community, educators find ways to help students thrive. That is cause for celebration and saying thank you to the education professionals, support staff and community all supporting student success.

From as early as I can remember, participating in sports was the icing on the cake as far as making school pleasurable. I was somewhat scholastic but the adrenaline rush fueled my competitive nature to play whatever sport was in-season at the time. Volleyball was the best, although I played them all Joan Ritchie EDITOR … I was even on the basketball team and was pretty good for someone who wasn’t exactly the image conjured when imagining a typical basketball player. Track and field was fun but long races were never really my thing. Many years later I started running for physical fitness but somewhere between then and now, I fell off the wagon and have basically become an arm-chair participant, now using the remote control to surf the stations. As a home-grown Saskatchewanian, curling has always been next to hockey on the roster of mostloved winter sports and the curling rink was the best place to be to enjoy family entertainment; curling is the kind of sport where all ages can participate together for both social and physical satisfaction. That is why I am so excited that the Scotties Tournament of Hearts will again be held this coming February in Moose Jaw. The draw is advantageous for the community and also for the business sector, projecting a financial boost. There are still tickets available, as well as an opportunity to become a volunteer, although many have already come forward to spend time filling positions available. Please see the story in the sports section of this edition. And as much as most would want to be at the rink to feel the enthusiasm and competition live, most of the nation will only get an arm-chair view of the Scotties in Moose Jaw. It is going to be an exciting time; bigger and better than the last time. Did I make mention that the Moose Jaw Express/ Moose Jaw Today are an official media partner of this year’s Scotties Tournament of Hearts? This is very exciting for us and we are so pleased for the opportunity. We hope to keep you posted on allthings curling up-to and through the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts right here in Moose Jaw from February 15th to 23rd .

SaskPower set to launch revamped net metering program Moose Jaw Express Staff

Nearly five weeks after SaskPower halted its solar net metering program, the Crown corporation is coming back with a revamped program starting at the beginning of November. SaskPower plans to launch its updated net metering program on Friday, Nov. 1 for customers who want to generate their own power and connect to the power grid. The revised program has no cap or contract term and will credit excess power to the grid at 7.5 cents per kilowatt hour against customers’ energy charge. This price reflects SaskPower’s average cost of energy for 2020 and 2021. The net metering program allows customers to generate up to 100 kilowatts of power to decrease their monthly power bills and receive credit for the excess power they generate. Under the updated program, explained a news release, customers will still be able to offset their energy use at their retail rate while their systems are generating. When unprecedented demand caused the previous version of the program to hit its 16-megawatt (MW) cap two years earlier than expected, SaskPower paused the program to do a review and revise it to ensure long-term financial sustainability. “SaskPower has developed a net metering program that will provide self-generation opportunities and support local industry for years to come,” said MLA Dustin Duncan, minister responsible for SaskPower. “While large, utility-scale projects are by far the most economical way to add renewable energy to the grid, net metering will remain another tool in the toolbox as SaskPower works to meet its target of reducing greenhouse gases 40 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.” Changes from the previous program include no limit on

program capacity, no program end date, and no specified contract length. With the relaunch of the net metering program, there will no longer be a Government of Saskatchewan rebate on capital equipment and installations across the province. “We know there is growing demand for solar self-generation in Saskatchewan,” said Mike Marsh, SaskPower president and CEO. “The updated program provides certainty and clarity for our customers who want to net meter while reducing the financial impacts on customers who do not have solar panels.” Customers participating in the previous net metering program will be grandfathered in under their current contract as long as there are no changes to their projects. At the end of the contract, these customers will become part of the new program.

What About Mosaic Place? Hasn’t anyone else noticed that Mosaic Place, just a few years ago the host venue for dozens of highly sought after concerts and other performances, has become little more than the local hockey and curling rink? There were over 40 non-ice performances at Mosaic between 2011 and 2016. John Mellencamp, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Marianas Trench, The Tragically Hip, Chicago, Meatloaf, ZZ Top, The Doobie Brothers, Jeff Dunham, Styx, just to name a few. Having these performers here meant Moose Javians didn’t have to spend out money in Regina or Saskatoon to see them, and they brought people and significant money into local Moose Jaw businesses. If you look at the Mosaic web site, you will find it almost empty of acts of t?his nature. Is this the direction City Council wants? Is this what the people of Moose Jaw want? Mark Fenton Moose Jaw

Food manufacturing important to Canadian economy By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express AGRIMART

EXPRESS Food manufacturing is a major industry in Canada, accounting for 15 per cent of all manufacturing in the nation. The food manufacturing industry employs about 240,000 people — 14 per cent of all manufacturing employees — according to Statistics Canada. Most people don’t realize the resiliency of food manufacturing. When the recession of 2008-09 struck, all other manufacturing sectors slowed, except for food in Canada. The demand for food doesn’t decline during recessions but other sector sales are quite sensitive in those times.

Canadian food manufacturing sales have averaged 2.3 per cent growth since 1992 while other manufacturing grew an average 1.8 per cent. Food manufacturers compete in the global food trade with about onethird of product value – $35 billion – exported . In 1992, Canadian food exports and imports just about matched each other at $5 billion. Last year imports reached $26 billion – 74 per cent of exports. Meat exports accounted for more than half the $9 billion food export surplus. A Farm Credit Canada report notes the five largest food manufacturing sectors are: dairy, $14.75 billion; slaughter of red meat animals, $13.05 billion; starch, vegetable fat and oil,

$8.88 billion; poultry processing, $8.07 billion; animal food, $8.07 billion. Ron Walter can be reached at

Striking union members picket in front of MLA’s office Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Striking Crown employees in Moose Jaw took their concerns on the road and picketed in front of Moose Jaw-Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence’s office to send a message. About 60 Unifor union members from SaskTel and other Crown corporations gathered at Lawrence’s constituency office on South Hill on Oct. 16 during a lunchtime protest. Two union members spoke during the gathering, along with Regina Rosemont MLA Trent Wotherspoon and federal NDP candidate Talon Regent. All Unifor union members across the province have been locked out for nearly two weeks. The provincial government has become involved in the bargaining process by pushing the proposed zero-per-cent wage increases, explained event MC Lorne Hill, a network technician for SaskTel in Moose Jaw.

Unifor strike potentially reaching an end, union members return to work Larissa Kurz

A province-wide press release has reported that six Crown corporations currently engaged in the labour dispute with Unifor have signed memoranda of agreement on Oct. 20, to reach a tentative agreement with the union. Ratification by unionized employees must be completed before details of the agreements can be released, but the agreement looks to be the end of the Unifor labour strike for now. “These agreements were reached because dedicated teams were determined to achieve agreements that are fair and beneficial to both the employees and the corporations,” Crown Investments Corporation President and CEO Blair Swystun said, in a press release. “On behalf of the leadership at each of the Crowns and CIC, thank you to the Crown bargaining teams and Unifor’s negotiators who have worked tirelessly to reach settlements.” Crown employees will return to a regular work schedule beginning Oct. 21, after two

Vandals disrupt SaskTel services For Moose Jaw Express

Alleged incidents of vandalism resulted in outages of SaskTel services in both Saskatoon and Moose Jaw recently. In Moose Jaw, the outage took place from 11:45 p.m. on Oct. 6 to 6 p.m. on Oct. 7. Approximately 130 customers were without phone, internet, and television services for around 18 hours. SaskTel says a cabinet on the 500 block of Hochelaga St. West was vandalized and cables were moved and cut within the cabinet.

According to a press release, SaskTel expresses concern that such outages may affect customers’ ability to communicate during an emergency situation. Anyone with information on this incident, or any other suspcious activity involving SaskTel property, equipment, or infrastructure, should contact the police. According to SaskTel, similar incidents took place in Saskatoon on Oct. 13 and Oct.

Recycling program review necessary in light of insignificant impact A large majority of residents are willing to do something to stop pollution and to keep our land and streets clear of garbage. That fact underpins recycling programs operated in cities, towns and villages across North America. by Ron Walter Recycling programs have mushroomed over the years from pure financial recovery through recycling of aluminum cans and bottles to cardboard and more exotic materials. Moose Jaw’s first experience with modern recycling came when the province set up SARCAN to collect and pay for pop cans and bottles as well as the liquor containers that had been returned to the brewers. The program has been successful and has expanded. The next step in local recycling was the compost collection plan that ended when there was no market for the costly compost. Composting was more expensive than expected due to labour costs separating unusable materials from the manure-grass-leaves mixture. City introduction of collection bins for newsprint and cardboard was popular, so popular that city council

three years ago implemented the current curbside recycling program. Council had another motive: to increase the life span of the sanitary landfill. The dump is near full and any reduction of wastes would delay the expensive decision to build a new one, or expand this one. An October 15 report to council indicates mixed success with curbside recycling. Waste removal to the landfill has declined 6.9 per cent this year alone as part of a three year trend. No one knows why the landfill deposits decreased. Was it the economy? Or did people just throw out less stuff? But the volume of recycled materials with the curbside program has increased a mere 0.2 per cent over three years. In other words taxpayers ponied up an average $800,000 a year in recycling fees to increase the amount of recycled material by less than one per cent. That seems like a colossal waste of money — especially when considering this city is strapped for cash. The city recycling report notes another part of the recycling equation has become unfavourable. The cost of recycling a kilogram of waste has increased to 74 cents. Householder fees increased from $5.83 a month to $7.09 – 21 per cent in three years. Tax costs would be higher except for a $340,000 grant from senior gov-

ernment. Yet the much vaunted cost recovery from sales of recycled matter is a meagre 14 cents a kilogram. Based on the cost and recovery, this program doesn’t make much financial sense. As a matter of civic pride and feel-good-about-doing-our-part the program is awesome. Council needs to answer one question in reaching the decision to renew the curbside contract, re-tender or revert to voluntary recycling: How much can we afford for a feel-good program that reduces waste so little? Council needs to review the global picture. China and other Asian countries have chosen to stop being garbage/recycling dumps for North America. The result: lower prices for salvaged material and mountains of unsold material across the country. Just how much saving of the planet happened when our waste was shipped abroad?

Legion being transformed into a mini golf course for tournament Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Legion’s upcoming indoor mini golf tournament is a unique experience to use the entire Legion building as a 9-hole course. Norma Richardson, public relations for the Moose Jaw branch, thought that the indoor tournament would be a fun event to bring back. “We are using the whole building for our golf tournament, all three floors,” said Richardson. “It’s sort of like, you hit the ball into the elevator and go up the elevator to the top and then work your way down the stairs. It’s kind of crazy.” All necessary equipment will be provided, as the Legion has borrowed clubs, balls, and holes from 15 Wing, and the tournament is open to the public — anyone can take part. Golfers are encouraged to register prior to the event on Oct. 27, with the fee of $5 granting you 9 holes on the improvised course. Things will get started at 1:30 p.m. with the first round of golfers, and Richardson hopes to see plenty of people bring their friends out for the day. Richardson was willing to make room for last-minute attendees on the day of the tournament, but she’d like to be able to schedule the day and get everyone some time on the “course.” It’s been almost two decades since the Legion has done this particular event, and Richardson is pleased to see interest — she’s got about 20 people already registered to come out. “I don’t think we’ve done it for so long because we just haven’t thought of it, I guess, but somebody suggested it and we thought, let’s try it, see if it brings anybody down,” said Richardson. “ To register for the tournament, give the Legion a call at 1 (306) 693-9688 or drop by during their open hours.

Don’t fear the fines during Library Fine Forgiveness Month Larissa Kurz

If you’ve got a library fine haunting you this October, the Fine Forgiveness program is here to help ease your conscience. Fines Forgiveness is an October tradition at both of Moose Jaw’s libraries, where they offer incremental erasure of racked up fines in exchange for patrons completing some easy tasks, all of which involve exploring what the library has to offer. For each task — such as bringing a non-perishable donation for the Food Bank, learning how the e-book database works, looking at Hoopla for digital content streaming, checking out a new item, and many more — patrons can knock off $10 worth of fines from their account, up to a total of $100. “We know that people have stuff going on in life, and you forget or get busy and can’t bring back all of your items,” said Shevaun Ruby, assistant librarian at the Public Library. “This is an opportunity for those who accidentally got those fines racked up to come back to the Library and be able to work those down, so they can use the Library again.” There is also amnesty for those who return lost items, which means that patrons won’t be charged the usual processing fee. The purpose, agreed Ruby and head librarian at Palliser Library Jan Smith, is to

For some, having fines on a library account can be a deterrent to returning, and so the program is also meant to resolve that anxiety in a productive way. “Some people are avid readers but they’re a bit embarrassed about a library fine and

so they won’t come back until that fine is forgiven,” said Smith. “We’re not here to try and get their money, we’re here to try and get them to use our services, and come back for our services.” “The phrase we have on our little handout is, ‘we miss you, come back and see us,’”

said Ruby. Last year, the Public Library waived about $1,500 of fines during their Fines Forgiveness week. This year, both libraries hope to see some more dollars disappear down the drain. For those who frequent any Palliser Regional Library branch in the province, including the one on South Hill, you have all month to work off those fines attached to your account. For those who borrow from the Moose Jaw Public Library, you’ll have to spend some time in the stacks from Oct. 20 - 26, which coincides with Saskatchewan Library Week. The Public Library is hosting a Patron Appreciation Day on Oct. 23, with coffee and snacks available that morning for whoever stops in. “Come visit us, and find out what we’ve got, because its more than books,” said Smith. “There’s a world of opportunity for recreation and learning available at your library.” 19104BS0 19104BS1

Pictures from road trip inspired artist’s latest creations Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A trip through the Great Plains of the United States had a big influence on Edie Marshall’s latest artworks, which depict snapshots of scenery she took while riding as a passenger. Her art series Terrain is the result of an image journal log from a month-long road trip in March 2013. Marshall’s trip began in Winnipeg, before heading south to North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Nebraska, Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, and up to Montana. Randomly shooting images using her iPhone, Marshall took more than 1,500 pictures throughout the pilgrimage. Most of the photos — taken from the passenger seat — depict the passing countryside, although some shots include excursions into towns, cities, historic sites, an aquarium, hiking trails, parks and roadside vistas. Upon returning home, Marshall began translating the digital images into paintings. She eventually created 1,008 lushly rendered oil paintings over a two-year period. Her art series was first featured in Regina in 2015, followed by Regina Beach in 2015, Weyburn this past spring, Moose Jaw until Jan. 5, 2020, and then up to Humboldt.

Artist Edie Marshall poses with one of her panels of artwork, which combines small paintings into larger frames. Photo by Jason G. Antonio Those paintings are now on display at the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery (MJMAG), which held an art installation opening on Oct. 10. The evening also celebrated the works of artist Russell Mang, whose paintings show the Wakamow Valley from different angles and some prairie shots from around Moose Jaw. Marshall talked about her artwork before the start of the opening ceremony. “Scrolling through all the little thumb-

nails (on her iPhone), I liked the sequence and the patterns that were happening. And I thought about it, ‘What if I painted this?’ And decided I would do it,” she said. She initially created 1,000 paintings but made eight more so she could form panels 42 inches by 60 inches in size. Those panels were then combined into larger frames 120 inches by 120 inches in size; the larger frames are composed of six smaller panels.

“I enjoy the colour, I enjoy just making marks with the brush and I enjoy the texture and the lusciousness of paint,” Marshall laughed. The process to create the small paintings was interesting, she continued. She made them all quickly, but then faced the challenge of what would happen with the next picture and how she should compose it. “It also took me back to that time to where we were at those moments. I’d say, ‘Oh yeah, I kind of remember the spot,’” Marshall said, “even though the photograph was random … I just enjoyed all the different changes in the landscape as we travelled.” With a laugh, Marshall admitted that while she didn’t have any particular favourite painting, there were some she enjoyed better than others. She loves the vivid colours of the pictures from Arizona since the water there was a beautiful colour. She also likes the pictures of snow from Montana and Saskatchewan. Marshall added that every picture except one is of something outdoors. The only picture she painted of an interior scene was from her hotel room in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

- Moose Jaw’s Source for News! Time and place important factors in artist’s Local news, weather and sportslatest drawings Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Time and place are two central themes in Russell Mang’s latest artworks, with viewers encouraged to experience the particular locations by using the GPS co-ordinates written on each creation. The subjects in Mang’s artworks should look familiar to people, as his paintings reflect areas in the Wakamow Valley, Coteau Hills and surrounding countryside. “Working on location doing the drawings, one of the things I discovered as the progression of the drawings (occurred) over the years is the process of drawing draws me — pardon the pun — into a mindset of quietness, (of) paying attention to the land, and then I began to realize I was developing a presence of the land,” Mang said. “Time is (also) involved. When (you) look at (the) titles, the title alludes to where the particular work was done, but also the times are often referenced (by) the season,” he added. “You can see it was done northwest at this geographical location indicated by the GPS … paying attention to time and place creates a sense of presence, both for myself looking at the land,

but also for the viewer looking at the particular works.” Time, presence and place: those themes are highlighted in Mang’s latest art installation now showing at the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery (MJMAG), under the title of Time, Presence, Place. The art gallery honoured Mang’s work — and that of artist Edie Marshall — during an art installation opening on Oct. 10. Mang drew many of his works in 2014 while on location or from the roadside, he explained. He then spent several years adding colour to each painting. He thought the drawings were strong enough to stand on their own but wanted to involve colour since that was important to him. “The colour work was based on my memory and based on photographic references so I would get the colours right,” he said. “Even with all those factors, I had to make changes in the work for a variety of reasons. Sometimes when you’re working on a painting, you figure you’re going to do it this way. If you’re in tune with what you’re doing, sometimes the painting will actually demand to be painted differently.” Mang grew up in the country. His family lived on an acreage outside of Melville in east-central Saskatchewan. They usually took trips to the Qu’Appelle Valley to see the spring runoff. That sense of being in the land has been with him since childhood. His time at university also influenced him to paint and draw landscape pieces. He lived five minutes away from the University of Regina’s art gallery and would often stop by to see what was on display. Many of the pieces were created by Saskatchewan artists, who focused on the

One is from a location downstream of the weir in Wakamow Valley. Another piece is from a green space in Tatawaw Park, while a

Employees with disabilities contribute just as able-bodied do, say groups Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Contributions of residents with disabilities is being recognized by the declaration of October as Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM). Members of Partners in Employment (PIE) and the Canadian Council for Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW) gathered together as a proclamation was made by the mayor. The proclamation is part of Partners in Employment’s DEAM initiative, which is an annual national awareness campaign that occurs each October. Partners look to bring awareness to — and highlight a number of — successful employer and client stories in communities. This is the second year Moose Jaw has declared October as Disability Employment Awareness Month. “It’s just important to recognize that people who have disabilities bring the same value to the workforce,” said Leslie Bailey, senior supervisor with Partners in Employment. “That just like all of us, if it’s the right job (or) the right person … it’s successful, and it’s really just recognizing that throughout the community.” It’s important to include people with disabilities since they want the same thing as everyone else, Bailey continued. They want to have a job, financial security and contribute to the community. The work Partners in Employment does is fulfilling, she said. They are able to see people aspire to a career, and then later on, watch them become successful in their careers. The organization meets people where they are in their job search. It can help them discover where they will

be a good fit, while it supports them in connecting with employers who will value them. PIE can provide job coaching or can support the employer in how to best supervise and support the new employee. “People are coming to the workplace with the talents that they need and they just sometimes need a bit of our support to be successful,” Bailey added. CCRW is finding that discrimination against people with disabilities still exists in the community, said job developer Chris Rasmussen. If this is ignored, it will always be there. But if it can be discussed, affected people can be incorporated more into the workforce and a

better workforce can be experienced. “Everybody has skills, so if we can find ways to put them to the best use (and give people a chance), businesses will prosper and we can find ways to fill some of those jobs that we can’t fill otherwise,” he said. Rasmussen pointed out to have the municipality of Moose Jaw on board with another project provides weight to the organization’s initiatives. The municipality has already hired two clients from CCRW since its office re-opened. It’s difficult to determine how well the community is doing in hiring people with disabilities, simply because there are so many small businesses that employ only three to five people, he continued. The labour market is slow right now and many people — regardless of ability — are struggling to find a job. However, the businesses with whom CCRW works are great in welcoming clients, said Rasmussen. Businesses call the office and ask if there are clients available with certain skill sets. Once the connection is made, CCRW then supports and fosters the relationship so the business and employee can be successful. Rasmussen encouraged businesses to hire “outside the norm” and look beyond the cover letter and resumé. Instead, businesses should look at job applicants’ life experiences and interests. “The resumé can give you a lot of information,” he added, “but it doesn’t give you everything.”

From The Kitchen

F l o u r dete r m i n e s te mp e r at u re o f o ve n s By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

A worn and torn cookbook published in 1935 is missing a front and back cover page but the recipes inside indicate the cooking methods and food prepared in the years before the Second World War. The book also includes helpful hints. For instance, cooks without an oven thermometer were advised to use flour as a temperature guide. “Set a pan sprinkled with flour in the oven and if it becomes a delicate brown in five minutes, the oven is slow (250-350). If the flour turns to a medium golden brown in five minutes, the oven is moderate (350-400). If the flour turns a deep, dark brown in five minutes, the oven is hot (400 to 450).” The book also recommends eating regular amounts of eggs, meat, potatoes, bread, butter, cereals, nut, beans, etc., supplemented by plenty of milk and fresh vegetables and fruits. “The housekeeper is the family dietitian.” This week’s recipes come from this handy cookbook.


Potato Soup

3 potatoes 1 quart milk 3 tbsps. butter 2 tbsps. flour 1 1/2 tsps. salt 1/4 tsp. celery salt

1/2 tsp. onion seasoning 1/8 tsp. black pepper 1 tsp. chopped parsley Cook potatoes in salted boiling water until soft. Rub through a strainer. Scald milk and add to potatoes. Melt butter and add all dry ingredients. Stir until well mixed then stir into boiling soup. Cook five minutes and strain again. Sprinkle with parsley to serve. •••

Stuffed Cabbage

1 average cabbage 1 lb. chopped beef, uncooked 1 slice salted pork or bacon 1/2 cup bread crumbs 1 egg 1 onion 1/2 cup milk 1 green pimento salt and pepper Choose a solid cabbage and remove outer leaves. Place in boiling, salted water to soften it. Remove from water. Chop the bacon and onion and add the chopped beef and crumbs

that have been dampened in the milk. Add the beaten egg and salt and pepper and cook until meat is cooked. Split the cabbage in half and place the beef mixture stuffing inside. Cut the pimento into slices and add. Place cabbage halves together then wrap the cabbage in cotton cheesecloth and steam until tender. Slice and serve with a tomato sauce.

Dancers taking the floor to fundraise with annual Dance-a-Thon Larissa Kurz

Dancers of all ages from Dance Images by BJ will be taking pledges and hitting the studio floor for the annual Kids Helping Kids Dance-a-Thon on Oct. 27, raising donations to make sure local kids are able to take part in dance. The studio has partnered with the Saskatchewan-based organization Creative Kids since 2013, with their Dance-aThon raising over $68,000 in donations over the years.

“It’s so important to teach our kids and instill the values of looking out for other people and finding small ways to make big changes.”

Last year, the Dance-a-Thon raised around $6,500 for Creative Kids. (supplied)

- Assistant director Shauna Bzdel All donations received before and during the Dance-a-Thon will go to Creative Kids, who use those funds to provide kids all over Saskatchewan — including Moose Jaw — with grants so they can

take part in arts and cultural activities. The studio’s assistant director Shauna Bzdel is immensely proud of the studios total, but she finds that the goals for the event, aside from the fundraising effort, are more than monetary. “Our biggest thing is that we want just to really promote [to our dancers] is to be selfless and giving,” said Bzdel. “It’s so important to teach our kids and instill the values of looking out for other people and finding small ways to make big

changes.” The day-long dance marathon is actually organized and choreographed by the senior students at Dance Images by BJ. Bzdel lends a helping hand, but she credits the day’s smooth sailing to her students. “They plan the classes, they organize. We have a room that’s set up with bouncy castles and obstacle courses and a snack room,” said Bzdel. “It’s all of our older dancers at the studio that are there all

day, putting on this really great fun event for our younger dancers at the studio.” Bzdel encourages the community to consider sending in a donation for the event, either by contacting the studio at 1 (306) 692-0515 or online through the Creative Kids website. If you know a Dance Images dancer, they can also take your donation as a pledge. “We would definitely be very appreciative of any outside donations that would end up coming our way,” said Bzdel. “Anything that we can collect, we know is going to be well used in supporting other families out there and allowing their children to be active and do something that all of our dancers love to do.” The studio also invites the public to stop in during the Dance-a-Thon, to take a look at what the dancers are working on throughout the day. They will be taking donations all throughout the day. The all-day event is just one of the fundraisers Dance Images by BJ takes part in throughout the community. “We have really great families, and I feel that our families support us really well,” said Bzdel. “And as a locally based business, it is so important to find ways to support the community.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS We could manage without a television set

Television was a mystery in the early years of my life, a novelty that came slowly to our family’s community. Then one family bought a box that showed moving pictures, with voices, and that home became the gathering point on Saturday evenings for viewing of NHL games. Joyce Walter The lady of the house resoFor Moose Jaw Express lutely accepted this weekly company and served sandwiches and beverages to the cheering or booing crowd. It wasn’t until I had reached high school that we obtained a television set of our own. There were rules: No TV until the homework is finished; turn the TV off when company arrives; no meals in front of the television, except Sunday evening while we watched a musical show, followed by a show about wagon trains. My furnished apartment after graduation did not have a television set and I wasn’t about to waste money buying one and life was fine without it. Upon marriage, the set Housemate brought into our home lasted several years until the picture tube died a loud death. That led to purchase of a modern television set in full colour, and one not needing rabbit ears because the house had an antenna. Add this modern machine to the combination radio-record player and our home entertainment centre was complete — Johnny Horton’s music or Lorne Greene’s Bonanza. Neither device had remote controls so exercise was gained by getting up to change channels or to select another long-playing vinyl record. The years went by and we upgraded our television and added cable channels to enhance our viewing pleasure, and suddenly we began spending more and more time sitting in front of a large box with a screen, and a remote control that Housemate seldom wanted to surrender. If we missed a favourite show at the regular time, we could sit up late and watch it on another channel. In summer we usually limited TV time to the news at any time of the day. We heard about families unhooking themselves from television and surviving without emotional harm. Two sets of friends who discarded their TVs lauded that action and still knew about world affairs and could watch shows of their choice on their computers or smart phones. Then without thought, with guests in the house, our TV

wasn’t turned on for seven days. Instead we sat around the kitchen table eating and talking and laughing and enjoying each other’s company. In the living-room, now cleared of debris, we did more visiting and catching up, never once thinking we should scramble downstairs to watch the bad guys get caught or to listen to political rhetoric from both sides of North America. We had our newspaper to read and the radio to find out about community and provincial and world events, proving that we could survive without television as the focal point of our lives. However, I didn’t venture the suggestion to eliminate the TV totally. Why? It will soon be curling season and

it seems only television station owners actually know that curling is a sport that has hundreds of fans sitting there watching end-by-end play. And in a co-operative spirit, if I’m allowed my curling, it is only fair that Housemate be permitted to watch his business and nature shows. I guess the TV stays but it will be turned off if guests arrive. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Tons of electronics being recycled through Canada-wide program Larissa Kurz

In the spirit of Waste Reduction Week, the Electronic Products Recycling Association wants Canadians to know that all those broken, busted, and not-working electronics around the house can be recycled and repurposed — and it has never been easier. Because electronics contain a number of materials that can become hazardous when left in a landfill, like glass and toxic metals like mercury, it has become a serious question of what to do with them once they no longer work. The EPRA’s Recycle My Electronics program answers that question by collecting end-of-life electronics to be safely recycled and turned into useable materials that go right back into the industrial production chain. All of the items collected are sent to the processors right here in Western Canada, where they are dismantled and then, depending on the material, shredded and baled to be sold to manufacturers who will use them for future production — meaning your new office chair or even new electronic device could be made of recycled material. Currently in Saskatchewan, the Recycle My Electronics program will take a long list of items: computers or any kind of display screens, printers, stereo components, wires and cables of all kinds, VCR and DVD players, microwave ovens, e-readers and gaming devices, and more. The program is currently operating in ten provinces across Canada, with Saskatchewan actually being the first place in North America to implement an industry-led electronics recycling program. Residents take their electronics to a drop-off location, all of which are listed on, and Recycle My Electronics takes care of the rest. In Saskatchewan, the program runs in partnership with SAR-

Items given to the Recycle My Electronics program are carefully taken apart and broken down into their base materials, which are then sent back to manufacturers to be reused in new products. (supplied) CAN, meaning that many of their depots act as drop-off locations. Since the EPRA began the Recycle My Electronics program back in 2007, they have processed over one million

metric tonnes of material across Canada — 32, 600 metric tonnes in Saskatchewan. Gaylene Creelman, executive director of the Electronic Products Recycling Association, spoke of the benefits that recycling and reusing these materials has in the longterm picture. “We’ve already mined this material from the earth and we really don’t need to mine it again. And we want to expand the life of our landfills because there is a use for the material,” said Creelman. According to the EPRA’s annual report, about 89 per cent of Saskatchewan residents are already aware of the program, which is an extremely high rate. “We do still see about 80% of households have at least one device sitting at home waiting to be recycled,” said Creelman. “So, I would challenge residents to kind of look through their homes see if there are things that they haven’t used for a while that are truly at their end of life, and take those into recycling.” And, for those wondering what sorts of places that broken-down metal ends up after the program, Creelman shared this interesting fact: 1.5 per cent of the metal used in the Vancouver Winter Olympics medals was recycled, and the Rio Summer Games medals were made of 30 per cent recycled metal. For the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, one hundred per cent of the metal used in creating the gold, silver, and bronze medals will be recycled metal. So, bringing your old iPad or computer to the Recycle My Electronics program could mean that it someday might hang around the neck of an Olympic athlete — a much better fate than settling in a landfill.

Pop-up repair day looking to keep things out of the trash Larissa Kurz

If you have some household items on your shelf that need some fixing and you’re not quite ready to give up on them yet, you’re in luck — bring them out to the Repair Café on Oct. 26 and see if a local handy expert can help.

Repair Café is like a one-day pop-up repair clinic that brings together local handypersons, versed in an array of helpful skills, to take a crack at fixing items brought to them from people in the community. 19104RE0 19104RE1

Each expert is a local volunteer, and they will provide whatever repairs they can right on the spot, free of charge, and even walk the item’s owner through what they’re doing. People can bring in all kinds of items, so long as they can carry them — clothing or shoes in need of mending, small furniture or wood items needing attention, small appliances or electronics that aren’t working, and so on. Moose Jaw’s Repair Café is being hosted at the Wandering Market and organized through the Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council, in partnership with Affinity Credit Union. “It’s a very relaxed atmosphere. You stay with your item the whole time that it’s being fixed and you learn about how it’s being fixed,” said Naomi Mihilewicz, communications coordinator with the SWRC. “The whole idea is to watch the repair and participate in it, if you can, and really understand the process of how one fixes things.” Repair Cafés aren’t new, although they are finally making their way to Saskatchewan. Saskatoon hosted it’s first event last year with great success, so the SWRC thought they should work on bringing the idea to more communities. This will be the first Repair Café hosted in Moose Jaw. If it goes well, Mihilewicz hopes to see Moose Jaw able to make Repair Cafés as

a more regular event. “They’ve now become sort of an international phenomenon and where they take off in a community, they will often be held on a regular basis,” said Mihilewicz. “Once people sort of get a taste for it, it’s pretty addictive.” The SWRC planned the event during Waste Reduction Week, which runs from Oct. 20-26 across Canada, because it felt like a fitting time to talk about fixing things rather than tossing them out. “The theme for the Saturday of Waste Reduction Week is promoting, swapping, sharing, and repairing,” said Mihilewicz. “We thought it would just be a great way to celebrate, and do some actual waste reduction and actually keep things out of the landfill.” All the repair services during the Repair Café will be free of charge, to keep it accessible for everyone, with a place to give donations for the help offered. Mihilewicz hopes to see plenty of people out to support the stand against throwaway culture. She also welcomes any volunteers who wish to offer their repair services for the day, and asks they contact her at to get involved. The Repair Café will be set up at the Wandering Market on 461 Athabasca Street E. from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Attendees at Saskatoon’s Repair Café last October found it so helpful that they’ve organized more. (supplied)

What you need to know about newly legalized cannabis products For Moose Jaw Express

As of today, the federal government has legalized the sale of cannabis edibles, extracts, and topicals. Although these products are now legal, they are not expected to be available through retailers for at least 60 days, as per Health Canada regulations. Ahead of this availability, the provincial government has sent out information to keep in mind when purchasing or consuming cannabis products. • In Saskatchewan, 19 is the minimum age for buying and consuming all forms of cannabis, including edibles; • Items should be purchased from licensed retailers who are required to follow specific health and safety guidelines; • All cannabis products should be stored in a place that cannot be reached by children or pets; • Possession of any amount of non-medical cannabis by a minor is prohibited;

• Consuming any form of non-medical cannabis in public spaces is prohibited; • You may only carry up to 30 grams of dried cannabis

or equivalent in public; • Possessing, consuming or distributing any form of cannabis in a vehicle could result in a $300 fine; • There is zero tolerance for all drug-impaired driving in Saskatchewan, which includes cannabis. “Safety of cannabis products remains our key focus and we want to ensure people who choose to consume these products are aware of the risks,” Minister Responsible for Liquor and Gaming Authority Gene Makowsky said in a press release. “One of the most important ways to consume cannabis products safely is to ensure you are buying products from a licensed retailer who obtains their supply through a regulated source.” More resources on cannabis in Saskatchewan are available online.

Employers still face cannabis-related challenges, a year after legalization, according to CFIB survey

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business findings from a survey say employers are still facing challenges related to cannabis in the workplace a year after legalization. According to a recent press release, “Only 8 per cent of surveyed businesses had experienced a cannabis-related incident in the workplace since October 17, 2018, but that number rises to 22 per cent for businesses with 100 to 499 employees, according to the preliminary data. Businesses in hospitality were most likely to report having had an incident (16 per cent). “The survey also found that: • Only a quarter of businesses list their

provincial government as a primary source of information related to cannabis in the workplace. • 32 per cent listed CFIB as a primary source of information, while 48 per cent did not have a primary source of information. • 59 per cent of those who had a primary source of information felt better equipped to deal with cannabis in the workplace. • 34 per cent of businesses do not have a drug and alcohol policy in place.” “Cannabis legalization posed some major new challenges for employers, especially in industries where the safety of employees or customers is a concern. We warned

governments in the lead-up to legalization that their education efforts were severely lacking. A year in, and as new products become available, it doesn’t look like it’s gotten much better,” said CFIB president Dan Kelly. “We’re finding that provincial governments still have not done a great job of informing employers of their responsibilities, relevant rules and regulations, as well as the resources available to them. “Many small businesses don’t have an HR department or legal experts on staff so they need help and resources, but too often, their needs are treated as an afterthought when governments rush to intro-

duce major new legislation,” added Kelly. “I advise any business owners that are looking for information to visit cannabis for tools and resources, including a free workplace drug and alcohol policy template.”

About CFIB The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) is Canada’s largest association of small and medium-sized businesses with 110,000 members (5,250 in Saskatchewan) across every industry and region.

Provincial government launches new personal health website For Moose Jaw Express

A new website will give Saskatchewan residents the ability to quickly and conveniently access their health records online. The site is MySaskHealthRecord. It was launched earlier today by Rural and Remote Health Minister Warren Kaeding. “This is a game changer, giving patients the information they need to play an active role in their health care,” Kaeding said in a press release. “Some provinces that offer similar programs have delays built in so that people have to wait to see their own personal health information, and some provinces only provide limited lab

results or require people to have a family physician in order to sign up. “Saskatchewan is leading the nation with the rollout of MySaskHealthRecord. Our program gives people access to their lab results, plus other important health information, as soon as it’s available.” Saskatchewan residents who are 18 year of age and over are able to register for MySaskHealthRecord. You will need a valid Saskatchewan health card as well as a Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) driver’s licence or SGI photo ID card. Once registered, you will be able to access personal

- Moose Jaw’s Source for News! Local news, weather and sports BIZWORLD Your connection to the world Basic financial understanding way too low among Canadians: surveys By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Two recent surveys by Canadian banks highlight a growing issue of concern that seems to fly under the radar most of the time. The issue involves basic financial literacy as well as individuals’ confidence and skills in this essential area. Finances, aside from personal relationships, are most crucial to our daily affairs. Yet from these surveys it seems large numbers of Canadian haven’t got a clue about basic money handling skills — skills that should be as common as tying shoelaces. One of the surveys by the CIBC Bank looks at attitudes of adults and what they have achieved towards planning and saving for retirement. The results are shocking. Just over three in four Canadians — 77 per cent — are worried about not having enough money in retirement. That’s

over 23 million people concerned about having a decent retirement. Some observers say non-retired folks have higher than needed expectations of retirement but accounting for that still leaves a huge number. Thirty-five per cent of Canadians worry about outliving their retirement money. And 11 per cent haven’t managed to put aside any savings, relying entirely on Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security. Many of these folks are among Canadians who never had a chance to save due to job skills and economic upheaval. The other survey by TD Bank illustrates the inability of Canadians to manage their own retirement planning. Fifty-five per cent – over half – don’t know how to make stock trades online. Thirty-nine per cent don’t know where to find free educational sources to learn about saving and investing. Most investors have to start with small

amounts but 25 per cent don’t believe investors can start with small amounts. Only 30 per cent understand that you can start investing with less than $100. Just to be clear, resources to learn about investing are easily accessible. Every bank, stock broker, or investment adviser has free programs to help you learn. If you feel you can’t trust them because they have products to sell, there are independent financial planners. For the do-it-yourselfers, there are independent online resources like investorlearning. ca. This issue has massive implications for future government social programs, future taxation, expenditures and general economic well-being. Comfortable retirees are good consumers assisting economic growth. The central issue of financial illiteracy among Canadians requires education to resolve these concerns. Both the banks

sponsoring the surveys have started programs to educate people about retirement planning and investing. The need is more fundamental than they and other financial institutions can address. For adults, there is need for some sort of planning mechanism like the entrepreneurial Junior Achievement clubs in schools. For the younger generation still in school, the obvious solution is classes in money-handling and financial basics. Programs in school and adult education can offset future demands on publicly-funded plans. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Vanier students seek support for global book project Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A class at Vanier Collegiate is participating in an international book challenge. Teacher Kelsey Warren’s Grade 9 class is taking part in an initiative called Global Read Aloud, where different grades across the world read the same book and then share their thoughts about it with other classrooms. Warren’s students have been teamed up with a class in Anchorage, Alaska and are reading the dystopian novel The Marrow Thieves. They then communicate with each other through letters, videos, and Skype or Zoom. This is the 10th year for the Global Read Aloud program. Warren’s class began reading the book at the end of September. The Vanier students spent the morning of Oct. 16 filming some of the historic and well-known locations in downtown Moose Jaw. The class intends to put together a welcoming video for the students in Anchorage. “I had read (the book) this summer and I thought it would be an interesting book,” explained Warren. She then found out from the literacy consultant at the Catholic school board office that The Marrow Thieves was also part of the Global Read Aloud

program, so “that sealed the deal for me.” Warren’s students have received their first written letters from the class in Anchorage, which focused on who they are and their favourite or inspirational quote in the book. Her class intends to send their own written responses soon. Student Sydney Cruz admitted she had never been inside city hall before, but after lookng around, thought it was a fancy place. “I thought it was going to be bigger. On the outside it looks bigger, but like, when you get in, it’s actually (smaller),” said student Reyhan Machmer. “I didn’t imagine it like this.” Being a pen pal with students in another country is neat, Cruz added. Her class has learned through the letters that the Anchorage students eat moose and deer burgers often. She pointed out while Moose Jaw sees such animals regularly, it’s more popular to eat them in Alaska. “It was fun writing (the letter),” said student Michael Biggar. “It’s like you’re learning stuff about other people not even from Canada. It’s just interesting. (But) your hand gets sore after a long time.” While students today receive digital messages in-

stantly, Cruz thought it was cool to receive and hold a physical letter that someone took the time to write. She thought she could get a good sense of someone’s personality through their writing versus simply receiving a text message. For more information about Global Read Aloud visit

SCRAPS Halloween party inviting all the ghouls out to play Larissa Kurz

Once again, SCRAPS is inviting all the “spooksters and groan-ups” to their annual Halloween fundraiser on Oct. 29. The evening is called A Scaredy Cat Halloween, although the funds raised will support cats with all levels of courage — specifically the Trap, Neuter, Release program that SCRAPS runs, as well as the numerous other services the group provides for stray cats in the city. The party will run from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Pizza Hut, featuring an all-youcan-eat buffet and some entertainment from musician Rodney Laporte and Magic by Chris to dazzle the crowds. Costumes are certainly encouraged, and SCRAPS coordinator Ann Marciszyn re-

vealed that thanks to the generous donations from a number of local businesses, each child at the party will take home a goody bag of their own. There will also some raffle items, and the chance at an entry into the night’s free draws — for those willing to bring a donation of cat food with them. This is the seventh year that SCRAPS has put together the Halloween bash, with the generous support of the community and local sponsors. All of the funds raised through the ticket sales will be used to support the SCRAPS programs in Moose Jaw. “With the tickets comes a lot of fun and excitement,” said Marciszyn. “There will

There may be something creepy about the way you sit by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor October is the month of goblins, ghosts, zombies and ghouls. Even if you don’t believe in Halloween or if these spectres don’t scare you, there is probably something else that is likely creeping you out without you even knowing it. Many, especially those in mechanics, aeronautic technology and engineering understand the concept of “metal fatigue”. With consistent stress or strain on an object even as strong metal, the metal can weaken and be prone to failure. Does such a concept exist in the human body? Absolutely it does, and it is known as “creep”. Creep is described as the constant strain put on soft tissues of the body, in particular ligaments and tendons that can alter the structure and ultimate function of these tis-

be lots of good food and lots of good fun, and it’s all for a great cause, which is helping homeless animals and preventing more from being born into that cycle.” SCRAPS works very hard with a number

sues. In chiropractic, we promote the importance of good posture, holding the spine in a position of balance, allowing gravity to go through the body with the least amount of stress. With poor posture we often see the head forward over the shoulders, not balanced over the plumb line of the spine. When the head rides forward, there is strain and stress on many of the ligaments of the spine. This stress causes a pull on the ligaments. If you pull on ligaments long enough and with enough force, the ligament can lengthen over time. The process is what is known as “ligament creep”. This creep is likely responsible for most spinal pain that exists today. Creep can be exemplified by looking at a farmer who experiences an acute episode of back pain during harvest time. Hours can be spent on the combine and then the farmer gets off the machinery to maybe fix something broken down. He lifts or bends and experiences excruciating pain in the back. Too often the action of the bend or lift is blamed. He felt fine before he lifted, so it must be the lift that caused the pain. WRONG. The constant strain on the ligaments of the spine and pelvis during sitting, lengthened these tissues, affecting

of proactive programs to help the stray cat population in the city, through the trap and neuter program as well as with rehoming programs for animals that need somewhere to go. Marciszyn advises picking up tickets sooner rather than later, as the event is always popular, although admission will be available at the door on the day of the party if there are any tickets left. Tickets are available for purchase from Pet Value, the SCRAPS 9 Lives Boutique in the Town n’ Country Mall, or by calling either 1 (306) 693-0718 or 1 (306) 684-9048 for more information. Tickets are $22 for adults, $10 for children, and free for kids under three years old.

their structural and functional stability. This spine is now at higher risk for injury. Ligament and tendon creep are to blame. Think about an elastic band. Stretch it long and hard enough, it loses its tautness and becomes loose and sloppy. The ligaments that hold the spinal joints together, and the tendons of the muscles that stabilize that spine can become loose and sloppy when there is constant strain on them, just like that elastic band. A loose and sloppy spine does not offer protection during a deadlift at the gym, or when bending over to pick up your grandchild, or even during a cough or a sneeze. You may have felt your pain at the moment of these activities; however, the creep beforehand is really the culprit. Promoting better posture can limit the creep but moving is far better. Sit less, get rid of your belly (it too causes ligament creep on the lower back), and regularly strengthen your core muscles to reduce the amount of creep. Mobility, not immobility, creates stability. The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication. 19104AX2

Moose Jaw’s K9 Unit provides Larissa a unique kind of support for officers Kurz

The K9 unit at the Moose Jaw Police Service is just finishing the process of expanding to include four highly-trained officer and dog units, which means there will be a K9 team available on all of the MJPS’s shifts from here on out. Police dogs actually cost between $7,500 and $12,000 to acquire, as they are bred specifically for the task. German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois are the most common breeds, and dogs usually work for about 7-9 years on the force. The dogs chosen for this line of work tend to be male, mostly because female dogs with the necessary traits for the job are usually kept for breeding rather than put into the line of duty — which makes Moose Jaw’s K9 unit unusual, as two of four dogs on duty are female. Cst. Chad Scheske was one of the first two handlers trained when the unit began in 2009. He and his colleagues continue to work with training partners across the province, but the majority of the unit’s time is spent training in and around Moose Jaw. “The idea is that we get out and train in as many places that we may have actual calls, that we can,” said Scheske. “[A lot of] our tracking is done in residential sweeps throughout Moose Jaw, because we don’t know where we’re going to be . . . We focus on the streets of Moose Jaw, for sure.” Training a police service dog for a K9 Unit is not an easy task. Each dog and handler go through an intense 16 to 20 weeks of training, all of which begins with obedience as a foundation. Police dogs are also utilized for more than criminal apprehension, although the chase and take-down skills are

The majority of their training actually focuses on tracking, which is the toughest skill to master, as well as searching for both evidence and people either fleeing or missing. A trained K9 team can search a building about twice as quickly as a human team of officers, and can locate discarded evidence using scent. An additional five weeks of training can give a team skills for drug detection, which one team at the MJPS has completed, or bomb detection. Police dogs utilize scent the most when performing their duties, which Cst. Scheske explained is effective because people engaged in high-stress situations — such as crime — sweat out what’s called an “enhanced scent.” The adrenaline and other pheromones in that enhanced scent are what police dogs latch onto, and gets them excited during tracking, searches, and chases. “A bad guy who’s running from the scene, his adrena-

line is going to be pumping and he will actually sweat from different glands,” said Scheske. “And although it’s individualized, that enhanced odour for the dogs is like crack cocaine.” But the K9 Unit isn’t deployed just for large-scale searches or high energy chases. K9 members are regular patrol members, with a few extra duties — they assist in the implementation of warrants, and they respond to the more dangerous calls as extra support. This means they are often on the scene for violent offences like robberies or assault, as well as in situations where the suspect is fleeing on foot, hiding from authorities, or evidence needs to be located. Utilizing police dogs is beneficial to law enforcement in that it can help create a safer environment for officers in a situation. K9 teams are meant to help resolve a situation, and handlers carry a lot of responsibility to control their dog in the most beneficial way. Cst. Scheske explained that K9 officers will not deploy their dog into a dangerous situation unless it is the only option to prevent injury to a police officer or civilian, a policy that is largely for the safety of both the dog and others involved. “Ultimately, the decision to deploy the dog is up to the handler,” said Scheske. The K9 Unit with the MJPS is one of five law enforcement departments in Saskatchewan operating with officer-canine teams, and is an important resource within the MJPS. Details for this article were given as part of the Moose Jaw Express’s attendance at the Community Police Academy.

Victims Services at the MJPS relies on volunteers Larissa Kurz

Donna Blondeau, coordinator of Victims Services within the Moose Jaw Police Service, spoke candidly about the department’s impact on the community — and the importance of their volunteer base. Victim Services was borne out of a police officer’s concern for victims of a crime or tragedy, as officers often cannot remain on a scene to help victims in their trauma. Rather, a separate department was set up for victims, to offer support and information about what comes next. Victims Services was formed in 1994, and takes referrals from both MJPS and RCMP regarding cases that may need support. There is no time limit on when clients can access services. Victims Services can help in a number of ways, from providing comfort while dealing with the emotional reaction following an incident, to referring clients to services that may help during their aftermath. Victims Services can help clients navigate the application for victim compensation, which can cover things like medical care, lost or broken property, ambulance costs, and even funerals. Victims Services is also there to help understand the next steps in a case, such as the terms of charges, whether court

Oh Clark’s

is pending, and how court releases work — as the Criminal Justice System can be confusing for those unfamiliar with its procedures. “We get to explain those things in terms that people understand,” said Blondeau. “A lot of the people we talk to have never been a victim before, or they’ve never been involved in the court system before, so it’s very intimidating, frustrating, and confusing.” Part of the support offered by Victims Services comes in the form of Kane, who is a trained assistance dog working alongside Blondeau to help clients with their trauma. Kane was the first assistance dog from the Pacific Assistance Dog Society training program to begin working in Saskatchewan, and he is extremely good at his job. “I think it’s been a lot better for a lot of people [to have Kane around],” said Blondeau. “He’s had things whispered to him, he’s been cried on, he’s been hugged, everything. I’ve seen people change dramatically when he’s around.” Kane is trained to seek out those near him who are exuding cortisol, due to anxiety or stress, and offer his comforting presence. He has assisted clients during inter-

There are only 19 dogs doing what Kane does in Canada, and Blondeau is proud to say that she brought the service to Moose Jaw first, with Regina and Weyburn later receiving assistance dogs of their own. “I can’t say enough about [Kane], he’s been a pleasure for me to have and handle, and I’m proud of the fact that I can do that for people in Moose Jaw,” said Blondeau. “Kane’s been very well received here; I

think everybody appreciates and knows what he does.” Alongside Kane, Blondeau herself is more than happy to provide her support. Her team of volunteers at Victim Services is selected very carefully, and each volunteer is available to answer any questions directed their way. Many of her volunteers, Blondeau shared, actually got involved with the program because they have been a victim of tragedy or know someone who has, and wanted to help. “I don’t think we could have a program where the backbone wasn’t volunteers, because people from our community understand and we have people from all walks of life,” said Blondeau. All services offered from Victims Services are free and confidential. Volunteers are welcomed from the community, provided they are over 18 years of age and pass the interview process. For those looking to become a volunteer, you can contact the MJPS at 1 (306) 6947624. For more updates on Kane the assistance dog, follow his Facebook page.

Has the city of Moose Jaw agreed to waving taxes for a period of time if this deal proceeds, and if so, how much and for what length of time? Also please advise if property taxes

would be exempt for the new Canadian Tire Store, and if so, would that tax free status be gifted to Marks, Parts Source, SportsChek or any other Canadian Tire entity that would move to that property? There have been rumours that if this deal does go through, that there are restrictions on the balance of the land, can you confirm or deny this or provide a working document? How long does the City of Moose Jaw expect to hold this piece of land for this suitor? There is currently no signed agreement with Canadian Tire and negotiations are continuing. If an agreement is reached, it would need to be brought before City Council for approval, at which point contract details would be public. Are there any supporting public documents in regards to this deal that can be obtained? If there is something specific you think exists that you believe should be made public, you are welcome to make a Freedom of Information request through our City Clerk’s office. Can you confirm that the date for the full deposit as promised by Carpere is to be made no later than October 31st.? Yes, as per the Purchasing Agreement, Master Development Agreement and Servicing Agreement approved by Council July 8, 2019.

Can you confirm that no tax concessions were made to the new purchasers of the property known as Grant Hall, as it appears that the name Caprere was on the new liquor application? This was a private sale, subject to the City’s current tax policy, which was updated earlier this year – here is the link to the Council agenda, containing the report: uploads/04.08.2019-Council-pkg-PUBLIC.pdf?ts=1571166545157 6. Please confirm the amount we are paying RBC or RBC’s representative directly or indirectly to invest in the stock market with the city’s money. City Council approved a contract with RBC Investment Securities to manage the investment of our reserves for $340,000.00. It Is anticipated that the increased revenue generated will pay for this cost. Craig, I respect that fact that some of the answer may be confidential in nature and I am only asking for the information that is public record or could be obtained through a FOI request. Thanks for your time and have a great week. Robert Ritchie publisher -, October 10/2019

City Hall Council Notes Transportation plan created to deal with parking during Scotties Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Visitors who come to Moose Jaw this February to attend the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts curling championship will have several transportation options available to them. During its Oct. 15 regular meeting, city council voted to provide free transit to Mosaic Place from Feb. 14 to 23, 2020 while the tournament is on to any person who can provide a ticket to a draw. Furthermore, temporary onehour parking zones will be established on the 300 block of High Street West during that time. Mosaic Place hosted the Scotties in 2015, and during the event, parking issues were identified including parking meter time limits and available area parking, a report from city administration explained. Furthermore, nearby businesses raised concerns about the lack of customer parking. Parking meters were then set at two-hour time limits, which didn’t give some attendees enough time to participate in events and having to leave regularly to ensure their meter wasn’t expired, the report continued. Parking meter time limits have since been increased to three hours. “This should assist in alleviating most of these issues,” the report noted. The municipality’s communications manager spoke with businesses on the 300 block of High Street West in September to gauge their concerns about customer parking during the Scotties. Only one business thought it im-

perative to institute a customer-only parking restriction during the tournament, the report said. The other businesses were willing to be inconvenienced with parking problems instead of drawing negative attention with complaints. Council discussion “Enforcement will be an issue, but it’s (about) trying to have some support for our businesses when the Scotties are on,” city manager Jim Puffalt said. “It’s a huge opportunity for our city. We want to make it the same for all businesses impacted by it.” Similar transportation service was provided in 2015, but there was very little uptake by tournament visitors, Puffalt told Coun. Chris Warren. City administration doesn’t have information about why visitors didn’t use the free bus service. The hotels association is again offering transit for its member hotels during the Scotties, added Puffalt. This will give guests the option to ride instead of looking for parking in the winter. Based on past information, there might have been only 14 people who took the bus during the 2015 Scotties, said Coun. Brian Swanson. While this transit proposal may look good on paper, it “really sucks in reality.” He thought it would be difficult to enforce the one-hour parking rule and looked forward to seeing how the municipality handles this problem. “I don’t know how many people will use the bus service,

but we won’t know until we try,” Puffalt said. Coun. Scott McMann wondered if city administration had considered offering parking on other area streets, such as the 400 block of High Street and River Street. There may be an opportunity for parking across from Mosaic Place, but administration has to speak with Spectra Venue Management Services about that, said Puffalt. He added there were no problems with parking beyond the 300 block in 2015. The problem with the 300 block is there are no meters there, so people think they can park there all day, noted Coun. Dawn Luhning. Council needs to consider the businesses there since they have operated here for years. Luhning thought the parking recommendations being offered were a good solution. Offering free bus service shows Moose Jaw is a welcoming city, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. Working with the Scotties shows the municipality likes the organization and is thrilled to have it back. “It’s an injection of money into our community. The least we can do is be hospitable and give someone a bus ride,” he added. Since there will be more than 400 volunteers — mainly from Moose Jaw — offering free bus service ensures volunteers won’t have to wrestle with parking, added Coun. Crystal Froese. She liked this initiative and hoped there would be more uptake. The next regular council meeting is Oct. 28.

City Hall Council Notes West Park group wants municipal support for playground upgrades Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

With many young families calling the West Park neighbourhood home, the community association wants to work with the municipality to enhance the outdoor play structures in the area. The association’s goal is to undertake a fundraising campaign for the enhancements. The organization estimates the upgrades will cost $255,000; its goal is to raise 50 per cent of the money while relying on funds in the municipality’s West Park Development Levy account to pay the rest. The current balance in that count is $192,000. To acquire support for the project, members of the newly formed West Park Community Association spoke to city council during its Oct. 15 regular meeting. Council voted unan19104SF0 imously to 19104SF1 desig nate the commu-

nity association’s initiative as a municipal project so city hall can issue charitable donation receipts to individuals and businesses that contribute to the project. The designation will last until June 30, 2021, with either party able to terminate the designation with 90 days’ notice. Council also voted to have city administration provide a report for consideration once funding and construction plans are finalized. The parks and recreation department wants to review the amenities being proposed to ensure they align with community needs. There are currently eight designated municipal projects that the City of Moose Jaw supports. Background West Park is one of Moose Jaw’s newest developments, a parks and recreation department report explained. Residential lot development is happening in certain locations, while the municipal lands identified for the proposed new amenities are near-

ing completion. The association surveyed area residents over the summer to gather input. Of the 154 households that received the survey, 136 — or 88 per cent — responded. Three questions were asked: • Do you have children or grandchildren who currently use the existing playground? 77 per cent said yes. • Do you have children or grandchildren who might use the proposed amenities? 85 per cent said yes. • Are you in support of that project? 100 per cent said yes. “It should be noted that as of 2018, Stats Canada indicates there are 152 children, under the age of 15, projected to be living in West Park,” the report added. The amenities the association wants to be added include more components for older children; a multi-use sports pad that could be used as an outdoor skating rink in the winter and basketball court in the spring and summer; a spray park; and a pavilion/ gazebo for community gatherings. Presentation “Our community of young families is growing and our goal is for our park to grow with us,” said association member Chris Olfords. The people who live in West Park are intertwined and interconnected, while they have known each other for many years, whether growing up together, attending kids’ activities or from community barbecues, he continued Nearly $10,000 has been raised, with West

Park kids raising about 30 per cent of that through bottle drives, lemonade sales, and collecting supportive signatures from residents. The community association is also in talks with several corporate and community-based groups about providing financial support. “This will benefit the community for generations to come,” he added. Council discussion Other community associations collect donations on behalf of their own organizations since they are registered groups, Derek Blais, director of parks and recreation, told Coun. Brian Swanson. Associations can request charitable donation status from city hall if they are not registered as non-profits. “I appreciate the association and its desire to improve amenities in their subdivision,” said Swanson. “(But) we have a fairly recent example where what the community wanted didn’t necessarily jive with what the city wanted. Once developed, (the upgraded playground) reverts to the city (along with) all costs … the taxpayers will be the ongoing owners.” Maintenance issues are important, said city manager Jim Puffalt. The West Park Community Association has been great to work with and understands that not everything in its plan will happen quickly or even at all. The next regular council meeting is Oct. 28.

Public Meeting The Ministry of Central Services in partnership with the Ministries of Social Services and Parks, Culture and Sport, invites you to join us for an information session about the future of the Valley View Centre.

City Hall Council Notes Condo board believes council erred in decision around complaint Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Alpine Village II condominium board believes city council made a mistake in its decision around a complaint from a condo owner due to flawed information and lack of due diligence. At its Sept. 9 regular meeting, council heard from condo owner Kathi Hagman, who appealed a decision by city hall to close the file on her complaint about the brightness of a light coming from her condo parking lot. She claimed the light was illuminating her unit in contravention of municipal bylaws. Council later passed a motion that directed city administration to enforce the Property Maintenance and Nuisance Bylaw. City hall then sent an order to comply to the condo board ordering it to remedy the contravention by altering, removing completely, or re-adjusting the light on the side of the exterior building. This would minimize the light from shining onto neighbouring properties. The condo board took issue with the ruling and made an appearance at city council’s Oct. 15 regular meeting to set

the record straight. The board did not dispute the compliance order but thought council’s interpretation of the light bylaw was flawed as it applied to condominiums, since Hagman does not have separate title to the property, explained Dawna Matthews, board vice-president and treasurer. “We are of the opinion that a more prudent option would have been to return the issue to city administration for further review, rather than make a less than fully-informed decision without complete knowledge or understanding of the situation at hand,� she said. The condo board has attempted make the best decisions possible during the last 10 years, Matthews said. Without exception, the board does its due diligence to ensure it reaches the highest standards of performance and ethical conduct possible. The board had the light installed since Moose Jaw had the second-highest crime rate in the province in 2018. It wanted to provide as much security and safety to its members as possible.

“All the negative publicity for our condo building could have been avoided if we had been consulted about this situation,� Matthews said. “So many simple things could have been done to avoid this mess.� Matthews claimed the condo board attempted to meet with Mayor Fraser Tolmie, but their request was denied. The board does not place blame on anyone in this matter since it believes all condo owners have the right to express their opinions, she continued. The board attempted to take the high road and wanted to provide council with clarity on the procedures, acts, guidelines and bylaws it must follow itself as a corporation. Board members attempted to work with Hagman on her concern with little success, Matthews claimed. Members were not invited into Hagman’s unit to see how much the parking lot light illuminated her suite; instead, she sent them pictures. After seeing the pictures, the members did suggest she simply close her blinds. The board has changed the size of the

City hall now accepting applications for community grant funding Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The goal of the program is to encourage involvement in sport, culture and recreation activities, especially activities that encourage the participation of underrepresented populations in our community, such as: • Children and teenagers, especially at-risk youths • Economically disadvantaged • Inactive seniors • Persons with a disability • Single-parent families • Women The deadline for submissions is Saturday, Nov. 30 for the period of April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021.

LED bulb and ensured it is not directed at any one unit, but since the bulb doesn’t provide as much illumination, another light will have to be installed, she continued. The condo board wants city council to write it a letter advising that due to misinterpreting the property ownership and condos bylaw, that what should have been a civil matter was treated as a bylaw infraction of separate properties, she continued. Owners do not pay property taxes to the condo corporation. All 23 units at Alpine Village II share common property tax on their tax bill based on a percentage ownership of that common property. “We (now) need to go home to our condos, pick up the pieces, try to restore harmony and repair the damaging effects this has caused all 23 unit owners, including Ms. Hagman,� Matthews added. City council then voted to receive and file the report on this issue.

We wanted to give them a special offer that no one gets.” The deal is straightforward: purchase a ticket for Draw 4 on Sunday afternoon for the contest between Team Sask and Team Canada’s Chelsea Carey for $32.50 and you’ll receive a ticket for Draw 5 on Sunday evening, also featuring Team Saskatchewan, for free.

The news is also especially good on the volunteer side of things, as the recent volunteer sign-up night drew around 50 newcomers. “It went awesome, and we’re down to below 50 positions that are left,” Kelly said .”So we’re doing that last little push to get people to sign up, they might go pretty quick so if people want to volunteer they’ll need to go to the website and sign up now.” Spots are available in the HeartStop Lounge and in transportation, as well as some 50/50 ticket sales.

Share your Team’s news, pictures and results with us! email: Warriors name Olivia Howe new coaching assistant

Moose Jaw product and former Notre Dame and Clarkson standout first woman to be named to coaching staff of WHL team Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When the Moose Jaw Warriors invited former Notre Dame and Clarkson University standout Olivia Howe to work with the Western Hockey League squad during training camp last month, they must have liked what they heard and saw from the local hockey product. The Warriors announced recently that they had named Howe the team’s new coaching assistant, making her the first woman to hold such a position with a WHL team.

“I’m really excited to start here, it’s a great opportunity and being from Moose Jaw, it’s awesome.” -Olivia Howe “We are very pleased to add Olivia to our hockey operations staff,” said Warriors general manager Alan Millar. “She has tremendous experience in the game and made a strong impression on our staff at our recent training camp as a guest coach. Olivia has played at a high level, coached, scouted, been a leader, and a champion in her career. She will be a strong addition

Olivia Howe guides the Moose Jaw Warriors through a drill during training camp earlier this fall. to our team.” Howe’s background has been well documented. A Moose Jaw Minor Hockey product, Howe starred for the Notre Dame Hounds from 2008 to 2012, racking up 107 goals and 207 points in 106 regular season games. She was the Hounds captain for the 2011-12 season and was a key to the teams 2011 Esso Cup National Championship.

That was only the starting point for what would become an incredible NCAA career, as she attended Clarkson University and helped lead the Golden Knights to the 2013-14 NCAA National Championship. Since graduating, Howe has acted as an assistant coach for the Notre Dame junior women’s team as well as a scout for NCAA and CIS prospects across North America. That all led to the Warriors giving her the

call this summer and the chance to work with the team during training camp. “It was really exciting,” Howe said of the opportunity on Warriors TV. “I didn’t hesitate, I just needed to get out there and be at this level of hockey. It’s definitely a lot different from the female game, so there’s lots to learn… it’s different styles of play, there are a bunch of factors that go into this and it’s a great opportunity.” Training camp showed that Howe had plenty to offer at the major junior level, leading to a meeting last week to gauge her interest in joining the team on a regular basis. “It’s been really surprising, the feedback and reaction I’ve had,” she said. “I don’t think there’s any problem communicating with the fellas, they took my criticisms and lessons and the things I had to say very well, and the other coaches helped me as well…. I’m really excited to start here, it’s a great opportunity and being from Moose Jaw, it’s awesome.” As for that whole trailblazer thing… “It might sink in eventually,” she said with a laugh. “Right now it’s a little fresh but I’m sure it’ll all sink in what’s going on and what a great opportunity this is.” The Warriors are back in action Friday, Oct. 25 when the host the Calgary Hitmen. Game time is 7 p.m. at Mosaic Place.

Pyramids 101

By Reah Good “Line up shortest to tallest.” This is how most team practices will set up stunt groups at the start of the cheerleading season. The tallest athletes will be assigned as ‘3rds’ or ‘backspots’ to support the stunts from the back due to their high reach. The shortest, sometimes smallest, athletes are typically assigned the roles of ‘tops’ or flyers. Mid-size athletes are assigned the roles as ‘bases’ and they are the ones who are supporting the stunts, tossing the flyers, or lifting the tops to create pyramid structures. Coaches like to make basing pairs with 2 athletes of similar heights so the tops are balanced. A competitive cheerleading routine contains the essential elements of the sport: tumbling, stunting/acrobatics, jumps and dance. Stunting is the general name used in cheerleading for lifting athletes off the floor. A stunt group of 3-5 people would have only one top and that top is being lifted independently and not touching other athletes once up in the air. A larger structure where the tops are connected with arm and leg connections amongst the tops is called a pyramid. A pyramid is usually 2 people high, but experienced athletes in Level 7 defy gravity with pyramids 3 people high.

This photo shows a “paperdoll pyramid” where all tops are doing an identical skill, or pattern of skills, as if they had been cut as paper dolls. This is a level 4 skill where tops are at “extension” height, and all doing an “extended liberty and extension” pattern paper doll skill. Photo by Rhea Good The entire sport of cheerleading has been defined into 6 levels of difficulty which create rules for how high athletes can be lifted or tossed. For example, in years past, level 5 were limited to pyramids 2 people high. Starting in 2019, level 7 has been created to allow for safer skill progression throughout an athlete’s career in the sport. I decided to write this article to share the interesting his-

tory of the sport of cheerleading and also to share current information about the sport. While photos of pyramids are great static moments in the sport, it is more interesting to watch cheerleading videos on youtube to see how the pyramid structures are built and dismantled, all with precisely choreographed grips and body positions for all team members.

Familiar names at top of Original 16 Cash League standings Four teams hold 3-0 records after Wednesday night action Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

With the first few nights of action in the books, the top teams in the Great Western Original 16 Cash League have begun settling into the top of the standings. Four teams hold 3-0 records, with the veteran Tax Team (Murray Stroeder) rink among those leaders after a hard-fought 5-4 victory over Walchuk Masonry (Ralph Courtnage, 2-1) on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre. The two teams were tied 2-2 through four ends when Stroeder picked up a single in the fifth and two more in the sixth to take a 6-4 lead. Courtnage wouldn’t go quietly, though and made things interesting with a single in the seventh before stealing one in the last end.

BTN Chartered Accountants (Danielle Sicinski, 3-0) also found herself in a close game, going right to the final two ends before taking a 7-4 win over Matt Froehlich (1-2). Sicinski got off to a solid start with three in the first, only to see things all tied up 3-3 through four ends. The two teams exchanged single points the next two frames before Barker scored three in the seventh to pull away for good. The road was far easier for KMS (Ben Gamble, 3-0) as they rolled to a 13-3 win over Protec Video (Wade Gray, 1-2). They went on an absolute steal tear in the process, scoring two in each of the second and third ends before stealing four in the fourth and another four in the fifth to 191036G3 191046G0 191046G1 191046G2 191046G3 191046G4 191046G5

lead 13-0 through five ends. Gray would get three back in the sixth before the two teams shook hands. Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais) is the other 3-0 team after a 7-2 win over EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 0-3). As has been the case in most of the games this season, things were close early and the game was tied 2-2 through four ends. Desjarlais took the lead with a deuce in the fifth, though, and followed with steals the next two ends to finish things off. Seaborn Insurance (Joel Jordison, 2-0) also remained undefeated but had to scratch and claw against Kelsey Noyes (03) to do so. Deuces in the first and third ends gave Jordison a 4-2 lead through three ends, but Noyes came right back with one in the fourth and a steal of two more in the fifth to lead 5-4. Jordison looked to take control with three in the sixth, but Noyes rallied with two in the seventh to tie things 7-7 heading into the final end. The perennial league contenders used the hammer to score one and take an 8-7 win. Pro-Tec Electric (Stan Barnsley, 1-1)

picked up their first win in another game that was close early against Main Street Strength and Conditioning (Jazmin Ackerman, 0-3). The two rinks were tied 2-2 after three ends before Barnsley blanked the fourth and fifth. It proved to be the right strategy, as he’d score four in the sixth and steal one in the seventh for the 7-4 win. Forged 365 (Donna Ackerman, 2-1) used steals in the fourth and fifth ends to build 5-2 lead over Easy Care Living (Lorraine Arguin, 0-3) before Arguin rebounded with single points in the sixth and seventh to trail 5-4 heading into the final end. Ackerman made the most of the hammer, though, and would take the 6-4 victory. The other game on Wednesday night saw John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 1-2) nursing a 3-2 lead after five ends against Barb Wallace (1-2). Wenarchuk would use the hammer for a single point in the sixth and steal one in the seventh for the 5-2 win. League action continues every Wednesday night at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.

Jerseys presented to Minor Hockey Atom teams during busy team night Larissa Kurz

“It’s a jam-packed house, and we love seeing everybody here, having a blast,” said Flanagan. “For them to be able to step up and have Chris Legare, who manages this branch, make three hundred cheeseburgers for these kids, it’s really awesome.”

A huge crowd of excited Atom hockey players gathered together on Oct. 16 at their title sponsor for the official handing out of team jerseys, grabbing a team photo in their new 2019 jerseys. Each season, Doug and Marilyn Dooley — owners of the McDonald’s on 9th Ave NE — purchase jerseys, toques, and socks for all ten of the Atom teams. They also supply the coaches with coach boards and help the division host team get-togethers throughout the season. “We’re very thankful to have Doug and Marilyn Dooley step up and sponsor our division every year,” said Chris Flanagan, director of the Atom division. “In my three years with Minor Hockey, I’ve built a great relationship with them. We never have to ask, they just always give it to us.” Because of the generous sponsorship of the Dooley’s and McDonald’s, the players all get to keep their jerseys

at the end of the season — a great memento of their year in Minor Hockey. “This wouldn’t be possible without them, and I’m very thankful to have them a part of this,” said Flanagan. “They’ve been doing this for a long time.” Moose Jaw Minor Hockey has approximately 130 kids playing in the Atom division this year, spread across eight boys teams and two girls teams. Flanagan speculates this is the most girls they’ve had playing in the Atom age division yet, with 24 players on the roster. For the second year in a row, all those teams gathered at McDonald’s for a jersey presentation night to kick off the season — an idea that Flanagan and Doug debuted last year to great success. Players were excited to don their fresh jerseys, posing for a team photo with their coaches before enjoying a cheeseburger and drink from the counter.

Swift Current claims high school boys soccer league title Colts take 3-1 win over Peacock Tornadoes in championship final Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Swift Current Colts came into the Moose Jaw high school boys soccer league championship final with a bit of unfinished business on their minds. It might have been a full year ago, but the taste of their loss to the Central Cyclones in the 2018 title game still carried a sting into this year’s championship on Thursday, Oct. 10. And while the Peacock Tornadoes might have been their opponent this time around, Swift Current wanted nothing to do with another tough season-ruining loss. Dilan Vargas and Carter Munroe scored first-half goals and Khalil Fakhar added a late insurance marker as the Colts took a 3-1 victory in the gold medal game at Canada Games Field. “We kind of just worked on things and built things from last year, when we unfortunately lost in the final,� explained Vargas, a Grade 11 veteran of last season’s squad. “We didn’t have our best game that day, and this year we wanted to come back and show what we have.� “We definitely had an entirely different mentality going into this game opposed to last year,� added graduating

Swift Current goaltender Ethan Arnold couldn’t quite get to this free kick, which would rattle off the crossbar and lead to‌

senior Jaedyn Carefoot. “(Last year) It was overconfidence and no one really came prepared for the game, so this year we made sure we were ready and focused.â€? As it turned out, the Colts would need that to get past an exceptionally game Tornadoes side. Despite entering the season with a ton of youth in their line-up, Peacock saw steady and continuous improvement on their way to reaching the final. Getu Sehlemariam scored the Tornadoes’ lone goal late in the first half, pouncing on a penalty kick off the crossbar and slipping a shot past goaltender Ethan Arnold. That tough break would be the only time Arnold would allow a goal, as he would also stop a penalty kick in the second half to hold the Colts’ lead. Seeing his troops reach the gold medal game was heartening for Peacock coach Jordan Jeffery even if the final result wasn’t what they hoped for. “This was the target this season, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed with how we played when we reached the target,â€? Jeffery said. “Swift Current was out to win that game and we didn’t show up to the game like we needed to‌ but even despite the poor performance, I felt we had an even amount of chances between us and Swift, but credit to their players and coaches, they came here with a gameplan that they executed to perfection. “That’s a well-established team, and that’s the challenge over the next year or two, try and topple them and bring

a banner back to Peacock for the boys program.� The Tornadoes development since the beginning of the season is a major reason for that optimism, “We’re disappointed with the results today, but we’ve made some strong progress, we have kids who are coming to Peacock for the soccer program,� Jeffery said. “So we’ve built and built and it’s doable, we now have the athletes who can play and perform and do what we’re hoping to do. Now hopefully we can get back here next year and go one better.�

Swift Current claims 11th straight girls soccer title

Central puts together game effort, but powerhouse Ardens too strong in 3-0 gold medal game victory Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

After a decade of dominance, at some point the Swift Current Ardens are going to falter in the Moose Jaw high school girls soccer league but not yet this season. The Ardens capped off another undefeated and commanding campaign on last Thursday afternoon with a 3-0 victory over the Central Cyclones to win their 11th straight league championship. To put that in perspective, the seniors on this year’s team would have only been in Grade 1 or 2 when the streak started back in 2008. The rookies? They wouldn’t have even started school yet. Some might not have even kicked a soccer ball. But they were doing that in brisk conditions at Sunningdale Field, turning in a consistent and stifling performance on their way to the somewhat comfortable

win. “We’re excited to win another league championship, especially for the girls,” said Ardens head coach Steven Mah, who has worked with the team alongside fellow bench boss Dale Perry for the entire run. “For some of the rookies this is their first time winning and with five Grade 12s, they were able to get through their career with four straight so they were happy and relieved about that. We were glad to finish it off and get the job done.” The Cyclones didn’t go down without a fight. While Central was unable to regularly advance the ball over half, they didn’t allow the Ardens much when in their own end. That defensive strategy kept things close throughout. “Central came out with a good game plan

and really tried to slow the attack down and played really well defensively,” Mah said. “They were really well organized but our players were able to find a way through that and eventually we did kind of break through and score three relatively quick goals to give ourselves a little breathing room. “Then in the second half, we had our chances but just didn’t finish things off. So it was good to get the win but we definitely have some things to improve on before regionals next weekend.” One of those aforementioned Grade 12s, striker Jannae Carlson, scored twice in the contest, while Ali Metke added the first goal of her high school career as Swift Current took a 3-0 lead out of the first half. Jasmine Temoshawsky was in goal for the shutout. With yet another championship plaque on the league trophy, the question now is whether or not yet another title is in the

works next season. “Teams change every year, so you kind of have new challenges and new faces and different aspects to your team to make it successful,” Mah said. “This year’s team isn’t the most skilled we’ve ever had but they work hard and are pretty gritty and battle and win games. So it’s kind of nice to see us win different ways and with different people. “It’s always good for the Grade 12s because you get to that last year and they’re worried they might be the ones to end that streak, so it’s a bit of a relief and excitement for them as well.” Next up for local teams are the regional championships during the Oct. 19 weekend, with the top teams advancing to provincials.

Warriors see progress amid recent losses

Hunter points to improved showing against Lethbridge as sign of potential Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors might find themselves working through a five-game losing skid after this past weekend in Western Hockey League action, but that’s not keeping the team from finding positives in their young squad. The Warriors fell 7-3 to the Calgary Hitmen on Friday before dropping a 5-4 decision in overtime to the Lethbridge Hurricanes the next night. Not the best results, but at the same time a good opportunity for growth and development in head coach Tim Hunter’s eyes. “It’s progress and that’s what we’re looking for as coaches, progress,” Hunter said. “I thought three of our 17-year-olds played their best games in Lethbridge and five of the 17-year-old forwards played fairly well in both games. And our young ‘D’ as well held their own for the most part of the weekend and they were better in Lethbridge. “So there was a lot of good stuff; it was really positive. They’re starting to figure out a bit of the speed, a bit of the tran-

“To compete in this league and earn a playoff spot, you’re going to have to do better defensively and that’s been our goal,” -Head coach Tim Hunter

While the Warriors got off to a 5-1 start while facing teams that are currently at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, the schedule has been far less kind as of late, with the loss to Calgary offering an example of a team loaded to win this season against a crew looking two years down the road. “Calgary is a team of 2000s and 2001s

and we’re a team of 2002s and 2003s; they’re built to win this year and we’re rebuilding,” Hunter said. “So credit to them, they have a good team and had a good effort. But I didn’t think they dominated us; we just gave up too many scoring chances in the key areas and they capitalized on it.” That game – and the majority of what the Warriors have seen in recent weeks – saw the Tribe heavily outshot, giving up close to 40 or more the last four contests. But, as is often the case with straight stats, that isn’t telling the whole story. “Shot volume is different compared to pure scoring chances; we keep all those analytics and we’re doing fine in those departments,” Hunter said. “When you’re a younger team you’re going to give up more shots than you take, and that’s typical. It’s limiting those key scoring chances right around the front of the net that we didn’t do a good job with, we allowed too many against Calgary but we limited Lethbridge, so it’s coming along.” And with that, will come a reduction in the largest issue the team has faced as of late – goals against. The Warriors have surrendered 30 over the last five games, and defensive improvement is definitely something in the cards for the youthful squad. “To compete in this league and earn a playoff spot, you’re going to have to do better defensively and that’s been our goal,” Hunter said. “Then it’s the style of play and pace of play and cleaning things up we do as far as turnovers coming out of our end and in the offensive zone, giving the other team easy access to the puck. It’s all things we have to learn to do consistently.” The Warriors are back in action on Friday, Oct. 25 when they host the Calgary Hitmen. Game time is 7 p.m. at Mosaic Place.

Yorkton wins first-place showdown with Central Weyburn defeats Peacock as high school football regular season wraps Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The regular season is in the books and the playoffs are on tap in the Saskatchewan Rural High School Football League after action on Saturday afternoon. The Yorkton Raiders (6-0) capped an undefeated regular season with a 19-16 win over the Central Cyclones (4-2) in a first-place showdown at Gutheridge Field, while the Weyburn Eagles (3-3) booked their spot in the Tier I playoffs with a 37-7 win over the Peacock Tornadoes (3-3). The lone out-of-town contest saw Swift Current (4-2) take a 55-26 win over the Estevan Elecs (1-5). Yorkton 19, Central 16 Austin Stewart hit an 18-yard field goal with 8:03 remaining in the fourth quarter to give the Raiders their come-from-behind victory. Central had taken a 16-8 lead out of the first half, marking one of the few times Yorkton has trailed all season. Ryan Vincent ran in from five yards out with 4:52 to play in the first quarter and on their next possession, Will Ansell hit Kaleb Schanoski with a 30-yard pass to give the Cyclones a 13-0 lead. Josh Haczkewicz got one major back for Yorkton before the quarter was out, taking a pass from Connor Watrych and going 49 yards for the score, with the twopoint convert making it 13-8. Schanoski closed out scoring in the half with a 20-yard field goal in the dying seconds of the second quarter. Stewart kicked off the second-half comeback with a single point on a missed 23yard field goal with 8:59 to play in the third before Braden Van Someren hauled in a 27-yard pass three minutes later to tie things 16-16. Vincent led Central’s offence with 20 carries for 102 yards; Haczkewicz had five catches for 95 yards for Yorkton. Weyburn 37, Peacock 7 The Eagles built a 23-0 lead by halftime and never looked back in their commanding win over the Tornadoes. Austin Knupp (one-yard run), Ethan West (15-yard pass) and Evan Barsness (oneyard run) all had majors in the first half, while Zack Schmidt added a 22-yard field goal.

Yorkton running back Val Declines is hauled down by Central’s Shaad Salido. Weyburn extended their lead to 37-0 on runs of 17 and five yards from Knupp in the third quarter. Hayden Tollefson got Peacock on the board with 6:41 remaining in the game, scoring on a five-yard run of his own. The Tornadoes had a total of 98 yards offence, with Kayde Shymko carrying nine times for 45 yards. Ben Michel had 15 carries for 146 yards for Weyburn, while Knupp ran 15 times for 64 yards. The first round of the playoffs will take place on Saturday, Oct. 26 with the game times to be posted early in the week.

Central’s Ryan Vincent went full Heisman in attempting to escape the tackle of Yorkton’s Austin Stewart.

Shrine Club raffle winner receives a special edition 1964 Mustang Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Shrine Club usually looks for interesting prizes to offer as part of its raffle contests, so its latest prize should certainly turn heads on the streets. A rare 1964 Player’s special edition Mustang was parked in front of the organization’s clubhouse on Main Street North on Oct. 18, as the club presented the keys to lucky winner Connie Drew. The vehicle is considered a special edition since an agreement was struck in the 1960s between the Ford Motor Company and the Player’s cigarette company to modify 15 Mustangs and given them a blue-and-white colour scheme similar to the cigarette company’s packages. “It really shocked me (to win). I’m still shocked,” Drew said. “I’m sad I don’t know how to drive a standard.” Drew was at a Moose Jaw Warriors recently when the Shriners were selling raffle tickets. She purchased a ticket, she explained, since she wanted to support the organization and its efforts to help the community and sick children. Now that the car is Drew’s, she isn’t sure what she plans to do with it yet. Her father had to drive it home for her after the Shriners handed over the keys. The raffle generated $41,900 for the club, explained raffle chair Aaron Ruston. After factoring in the cost to buy the vehicle, the club netted $21,000. Every penny will go toward children’s causes, supporting Shriner’s hospitals, and travel costs for sick kids. This particular Mustang has an interesting history, said Ruston. The vehicle is originally from Manitoba. The owner’s brother bought it and moved the car to Moo-

Drew bought her winning ticket during a Moose Jaw Warriors game in early October. Photo by Jason G. Antonio somin, where it was eventually left to deteriorate. Then someone else bought it, tore out everything inside the vehicle, and restored it from front to back. It was officially restored in 2012. This 1964 Player’s special edition Mustang was one of the first 1,000 Mustangs ever built by Ford, Ruston continued. It accumulated 63,000 miles (100,800 kilometres) after leaving the factory, while it has since accumulated 5,300 miles (8,480 kilometres) since it was restored. The vehicle has a 170-cubic-inch, 101 horsepower engine and is a three-speed manual. It has no power steering, which means the driver has to crank the wheel while turning. Another raffle could be coming soon, Ruston added. The club is looking for another car to offer as a prize, such as a 1960s Camaro or even a Barracuda, so stay tuned.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith

St. Andrew’s United Church

Hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this past spring. It seems not much is done to commemorate this notable milestone nowadays. Funny thing, I would think more honor would be given since marriages are falling apart all around us. I remember attending many silver and golden wedding anniversaries as a kid but times have changed. As I think of all the years Hubby and I have walked together, our marriage prospers when we were on the same page; the hard times come when we are divided and in opposition to one another. I was also thinking of my sis, who married the same year as we did, and how her life took a different path than she was prepared for. If circumstances were different, we may have celebrated our silver anniversaries together! The phrase, “United we stand, divided we fall,” has been running through my mind this past month or so. Of course, it has been in direct relation to our federal election campaign. I don’t bring up politics much but that does not mean I don’t have a passion for it! As I pen this column, only God knows the outcome of the 2019 election. My prayers, along with yours, have gathered in the golden bowls of heaven to be poured out in the proper time. No matter the outcome, we need God’s wisdom and guidance over this country to move forward in solidarity and peace. I believe no election has been as vital as this one in the last century. “The Liberty Song”, first published in the Boston Gazette in July 1768, included the lyrics: “Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!” American Founding Father John Dickinson had penned those words in his pre-Revolutionary War song. Following in 1799, Patrick Henry, governor of Virginia and best known for the phrase, “give me liberty, or give me death”, gave his last public speech saying, “Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall.” Matthew 12:25 references the danger of division which says, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” The Passion Translation says it this way: “Any kingdom that fights against itself will end up in ruins. And any family or community splintered by strife will fall apart.” Sadly, I have seen this not only in politics but in churches, communities, families, marriages and friendships. Somehow, we need to lay our divisive issues aside to unite in the greater good. I can think of countless splits in churches that have come from division within. Marriages... just the same. And politics... let us see how this election pans out. Walter Payton, who spent 13 years playing with the Chicago Bears in the NFL hit the nail on the head when he said: “We are stronger together than we are alone.” Unity is strength. Unity is valuable for every walk of life... at work, at play, in community, in church or state. I want to stir you up to greater unity in your relationships around you and in the part you play in your community and country. I want to encourage you to stick together through the thick and thin... to unite for the greater common good... to be patriotic, faithful, responsible, brave and dependable. Let us defend what our ancestors fought for... freedom and unity. “Let us trust God and our better judgment...” United we stand... divided we fall. God Bless Canada.

WILLIAM “BILL” WHEELER It is with great love and sadness that we announce that William “Bill” George Wheeler passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital on Thursday, October 10th, 2019 at the age of 89.
