Clinic gives caregivers info about securing kids safely in vehicles Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute is working with several partners in Moose Jaw to provide caregivers and parents with more information about how to properly install children’s car seats. Since January, the institute has worked with Moose Jaw EMS, Moose Jaw Police Service, Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) and trained car seat technicians to educate caregivers about what’s needed to ensure kids are properly secured. Free monthly clinics have been held — and will continue to be held throughout the year — at SGI’s claims centre on the corner of Fourth Avenue Northwest and High Street West. Parents, guardians or caregivers interested in learning more about securing their children safely in vehicles should watch the Moose Jaw Police Service’s Twitter account for when the next clinic will be held. Anyone who transports kids — parents, grandparents, school officials or guardians — should attend the car seat clinic so specially trained technicians can help them with their specific needs, explained Travis Holeha, child traffic safety co-ordinator with Saskatchewan Prevention Institute. Among other things, the techni-

Several organizations in Moose Jaw are working together to ensure children’s car seats are safely installed in vehicles. Stock photo cians will show caregivers how to install the seat. “It’s important to hold something like this because unfortunately, we have children die in this province and in this country every year needlessly due to car collisions,” Holeha said. “Car seats, when used properly, reduce drastically the amount of death and injury.

“It’s the most likely piece of equipment that will save a child’s life and that you’ll buy for them. Having it done right is really important. They really do save lives.”

The biggest mistake parents make — and that technicians find — is children are placed in the wrong type of seat for their size, height and weight about 90 per cent of the time, said Holeha. If kids are placed in seats with harnesses, the harness is often too loose. Seats can also be poorly installed. “There are so many different vehicles, there are so many different car seats, each child is different. The scenarios are endless. If it was one car seat, one child and one vehicle, I wouldn’t have a job. We wouldn’t have to be here,” he added. The car seat clinics began this year in Moose Jaw, with the goal to hold one clinic a month. Holeha noted there are 150 such clinics held across Saskatchewan regularly, so people should be able to attend one near them. “If we can encourage people to come and get their seats checked out, almost everyone can use a little bit of help,” he added. Visit SGI’s website at to find a clinic or car seat technician.

Moose Jaw Express offers new service marketing businesses on Internet A couple of years after the Moose Jaw Express weekly newspaper was launched Yours Truly was on one of my occasional visits to the office shooting the breeze with publisher Rob Ritchie. Although quite pleased with the Express’ success he wanted to know if this longtime Moose Jaw resident had any ideas to improve operations. “Well,” I ventured, “You should be on Facebook. It’s a great way to connect with readers.” I didn’t tell him how little I knew about social media. Rob, a print media guy, wanted nothing to do with Facebook. Fast forward to 2018. Rob told me about a new online news site coming. Every month he mentioned the site until I was thinking about that old bride groom wedding joke where the groom boasted all wedding night but never performed. Last February the news/advertising site was launched, building to 45,000 unique monthly users in a year. It takes time to get it right. The site offers regularly updated local news and sports, national news and sports, world news, business news, obituaries and free classifieds among other interesting items. Using the Express’ connections with news publisher Glacier Media, the Express is offering a new service to assist businesses with online marketing campaigns. The service was introduced locally last week by Glacier’s digital marketing director David Gordon Smith. Smith, with 15 years’ experience, started with eBay, then worked with a company doing glob-

al workshops for businesses using the Internet, later with Rogers Communications and Yellow Pages, now with Glacier, which is Canada’s largest publisher of community newspapers and online news sites. Most business websites are outdated, according to Smith. They are often loaded with photos when today’s user wants text. And the address and phone number are often hidden on an inside page by the website developer to generate more page views. Most people landing on a business website are looking for a phone number or address. The landing page, or website, is crucial to developing leads for new customers. People accessing the sites only take two or three seconds to find what they want before moving on. Few web site developers connect with a free Google service that provides reports of use and user behaviour. Analytics is the newest big thing in online marketing, allowing the business to obtain all sorts of information to develop leads and new customers. Readers may remember analytics was used in the 2016 U.S. presidential election to send targeted messages to individuals based on their dislikes. That kind of targeting for customers is now available to local businesses. Just contact Moose Jaw Express.

Program lets motorists work off hefty fines for distracted driving By Moose Jaw Express staff

Motorists who are penalized under the new distracted driving legislation now have the opportunity to work off their financial penalty instead of paying it. First-time offenders who are charged with distracted driving in Saskatchewan are now being hit with an initial fine of $580, which is an increase of $300 from before. While the goal for this increased fine is to ensure distracted drivers learn their lesson, many will struggle to pay off this hefty penalty, according to a news release from The John Howard Society of Saskatchewan. The Fine Option program allows individuals to work volunteer hours in the community rather than pay, lessening the financial burden. The John Howard Society of Saskatchewan runs the program and operates in Regina, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw, teaming up individuals with volunteer organizations that match

their interests and passions. “Last year, a total of 100,058 hours were worked by those with fines to support community agencies and the clients they serve,� said Shawn Fraser, CEO of John Howard Society of Saskatchewan. “Based on the amount of fines incurred, these volunteer hours contributed more than $1 million in community, which speaks to the value added to our province.� While being fined is not fun, many of the participants in the Fine Option program who work off their fine at Saskatoon’s Friendship Inn say they feel good about giving back to the community, said Sandra Kary, executive director of the Friendship Inn. Their help makes a big difference as the organization prepares and serves up to 1,000 meals each day for its neighbours. Connecting those with fines to community agencies and the people they serve has far-reaching effects,

not only on the organizations providing the service but also on the individuals working off their ticket, the news release continued. “Being able to work off my fine not only helped me financially, since I could not afford to pay the ticket, but also allowed me to be around positive people which helped in my recovery from addiction,� Chad, a program participant who worked off his fines, said in the news release. While the burden of paying a fine can be significant, the ability to give back through volunteering rather than paying the fine provides significant value to volunteer organizations across the province, building a stronger sense of goodwill and community connection.

Spring Legislative Session Begins

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

The Spring Session of the Saskatchewan Legislature started earlier this week. As it began, I stepped into the Legislative Building with a mix of emotions. I look forward to representing my constituents of Moose Jaw North and doing the work of moving our province forward, however; this session is especially significant for me as it is the last session before completing my term as your elected representative. Most constituents are aware that I had notified Premier Moe in January of last year that I would not be seeking re-election and will be retiring from politics when the provincial election is called later this year. The provincial budget will be released during the Spring Session. Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan for the Next Decade of Growth will be our guide as we discuss, debate and deliberate important issues throughout the Legislative Session. One of the most significant items of the 20 Growth Plan Actions for the 2020s is keeping the province’s finances strong and the budget balanced. This will be reflected in the budget to be presented on March 18th. Premier Scott Moe, in his annual address to the Municipalities of Saskatchewan Convention, announced that municipalities will receive record revenue sharing in the upcoming budget. Overall funding under the municipal revenue sharing program will increase to a record of $278 million next fiscal year – an increase of $27 million in 2020-21. The amount represents nearly 11 per cent increase in 2020-21 from the current fiscal year, and is almost a 119 per cent increase from the 2007-08 fiscal year when a Saskatchewan Party Government was first elected. Saskatchewan municipalities have overall been allocat-

ed more than $3.1 billion in provincial funding through the revenue sharing program from 2007-08 to 2020-21. The annual revenue sharing allocation to Moose Jaw has increased from $2,822,796 in 2007-08 to $6,176,393 in 2019-20. The increased investment will position municipalities across Saskatchewan for the new decade of growth, so they can continue making key investments in their communities. Our government understands that significant capital investment is crucial to building strong communities. That is why in the upcoming provincial budget, we will see one of the largest investments in provincial infrastructure in the history of our province. In this same budget, we will also see the largest investment in municipal infrastructure in our province’s history. $30 billion in infrastructure has been invested since 2007. The objective in the new Growth Plan is to invest another $30 billion during the next decade. The new Moose Jaw joint-use school will be part of that investment. I’m honoured to be able to say that during my tenure as your MLA, the efforts of the people of Moose Jaw and the decisions of our government brought about investment into a new hospital and a new joint-use school in our community. As usual during Session, I will be in Regina from Monday until Thursday afternoon. It’s always a great pleasure to welcome Moose Jaw constituents and students to the Legislature. I hope to see several school classes coming to experience the workings of the Legislature in the coming weeks. Our office is open during usual business hours between 9:00 and 4:00. I welcome constituents to call or stop in. It will be my privilege to bring your concerns and suggestions forward during my last Legislative Session.

I am a cautious person most of the time and really try to hold fast to my conviction of living life without regrets, but just a short three weeks ago I threw caution to the wind and somewhat changed the immediate course of time. It was our grandson’s fourth birthday party in Vancouver Joan Ritchie and of course we needed to be EDITOR there for this momentous occasion. I had great expectations of enjoying a brief vacation with both of our sons and their families at their respective residences, as well as some me-time shopping in the big city. Within approx. half a day after arrival and already at the birthday party where I possibly should have been acting a little more my age, I got up from a sidebench in the gym to show-off my basketball prowess. Twenty-four 3-5-year-olds were having the time of their lives, so I thought I needed to get in the mix; I hastily attempted to scoop the basketball where our son was shooting some hoops. Apparently, the skills that I thought I had were lost decades ago and I did a slow-motion awkward fall into the very hard floor. It was not a pretty site, as I was dressed in costume with a pink spikey wig and very flashy outfit; the theme was superheroes so I made an appearance as ‘super grandma’ …and after-the-fact fell very short of that. That is when regret set-in for a decision hastily made. As they lifted me from the floor to the on-looker bench, I was able to sit without extreme pain until the paramedics arrived. With the encouragement of laughing gas I entertained them to the best of my ability in the ambulance ride to the hospital where it was confirmed that I had broken my hip and needed a replacement. The rest is history; I had one, spent most of the week in the hospital and have been on the mend since…no shopping, no fun. The good news is that I am healing remarkably well and have already progressed from part-time wheelchair to a walker and now to a cane. It isn’t an immediate process to get back to where I was but apparently in a very short time I will be there, on all accounts. I am diligently working towards that end doing my exercises and behaving myself. I don’t think I will ever act my age but for sure I might weigh consequences in advance of making spur-ofthe-moment decisions.

Seniors’ association holds banquet to thank dedicated volunteers Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association showed its appreciation for the many volunteers who help the organization by holding a banquet to honour this dedicated group of people. The volunteer supper has taken place for many years, after former director Ross Leighton started it to thank the many people who support the association annually, explained President Vicki Wadsworth. Leighton died in December 2018 at age 93, so the organization wanted to keep the banquet going in memory of him. “This year we almost thought about Volunteer Natalie Dyok accepts a piece of lasagna from Ed Wadsworth, a not doing anything because of the member of the seniors’ association board, during a volunteer banquet on financial situation we’re in and ev- Feb. 20. Photo by Jason G. Antonio erything,” she said on Feb. 20 at the Timothy Eaton Centre, “and it does cost a lot of money to put these dinners on.” However, after reaching out to several community businesses, the association was able to acquire donated meat from Fellinger’s, bread from Family Fine Foods and desserts from Sysco. Normally there are about 60 to 80 volunteers who attend the annual banquet, but this year only 35 came. Wadsworth guessed that the Scotties Tournament of Hearts might have affected numbers since many volunteers likely stayed home to watch or were at Mosaic Place either watching or volunteering. There are many volunteers who have been with the club since it began in 1991, Wadsworth said, with several of these people in their 90s. These supporters are still helping, but the organization is always looking for more volunteers. The association’s board is also composed of volunteers, many of whom served food during the banquet. “It’s hard to keep a club like this going without the volunteers because we could not possibly afford to pay people to come in and help us … we couldn’t keep the doors open,” she added. Volunteer Natalie Dyok has been with the seniors’ association “from day 1,” when the organization met in the basement of St. Andrew’s United Church beginning in 1984, she explained. Her husband had died and she was alone, so she looked for something to do and people with whom to socialize. She joined the seniors’ organization “to keep busy (and) to stay healthy.” Dyok, 95, works in the kitchen on Thursday afternoons, helps with nickel bingo on Fridays, volunteers with banquets and card tournaments when needed, and plays cards herself two to three days a week. “That’s what keeps me young. I haven’t got enough time for everything,” she chuckled. The best part of the club is how friendly it is and how great the people are, Dyok continued. To her, it feels just like another home. There are many fantastic volunteers like Dyok who help out, said Wadsworth. It is likely the socialization aspect that keeps people coming back, especially since there are many activities in which to engage. It has been difficult to keep the association going since it faces competition from other similar organizations, she admitted. That is one of its biggest problems. However, the seniors’ association has been supported by such people as lawyer Talon Regent, who has worked to ensure the group continues to survive. Wadsworth singled out Regent’s work in securing several municipal grants for the seniors’ association, while he is now working to sign a new lease for the organization; the previous lease was signed in 2011. Anyone interested in joining the Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association can call 306-694-4223.

Luncheon for women’s empowerment aims to support development of sexual assault centre Larissa Kurz

When Amber Cameron from Radiant Skin Clinic heard that the Regina Sexual Assault Centre was expanding their services to Moose Jaw, she knew she wanted to do something to help the project. In partnership with Canadian Laser Institute, Cameron decided to put together a women’s luncheon and bring in a panel of guest speakers to talk about the power of female ingenuity. The luncheon and retreat will take place on Mar. 8, which is International Women’s Day and also the tenth anniversary of Radiant Skin Clinic opening in the city. “We wanted to do something community-minded, women-minded, and sort of empowerment-minded as well,” said Cameron. “So it was just sort of a light bulb, where we thought that’s perfect timing, that’s who we want to support.” The retreat has been slowly releasing the speakers who will be attending the event, including chiropractor Dr. Christine Majeran, writer Christalee Froese, Juno-nom-

inated singer-songwriter Megan Nash, and grief support facilitator and volunteer Della Ferguson. Tickets for the luncheon and retreat are $50, and Cameron has already arranged for the proceeds to be donated to the Regina Sexual Assault Centre and Moose Jaw Transition House to help bring satellite services to Moose Jaw. Cameron is looking forward to the event, and promises that it will be a fulfilling afternoon for those who decide to attend. “There’ll be a lunch, a few speakers who are very empowering and uplifting, a gift from Radiant Skin Clinic,” said Cameron. “It should be a good afternoon.” The doors for the event will open at 12 p.m., with registration to follow. The lunch will start at 1 p.m. and the guest speakers will present from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. To register for the retreat, contact Amber Cameron by texting or calling 1 (306) 972-7546.

Livestock tax deferral planned For Agri-Mart Express

All of Saskatchewan south of Saskatoon qualifies for the recently announced federal livestock tax deferral program. EXPRESS The program announcement also covers most of Alberta and most of Manitoba in areas where drought, floods and heavy rains forced producers to cull breeding herds last year. Under the program producers can defer taxes on part of their 2019 breeding stock sales to the 2020 tax year. The deferral is intended to help re-build breeding herds after the forced sale.

Gord Bamford bringing #REDNEK tour to Moose Jaw with upcoming artists Larissa Kurz

Country superstar Gord Bamford is making his way across Canada with a new tour, and he’s making sure to bring his crew to Moose Jaw on Mar. 13. The tour is kicking off to celebrate Bamford’s new album and single, #REDNEK, and he’s bringing along a veritable crew of country talent to join him on stage — including Juno Award winner and Saskatchewan sweetheart Jess Moskaluke. “It’s kind of like a one evening music festival where it’s just a three or four hour night worth of great Canadian music and lots of great Canadian artists,” said Bamford. “It’s a unique type of show where it’s just non-stop music and videos and lights and it’s great for all ages.” Joining Bamford to fill out the lineup are quite a few rising stars, including Duane

Steele, JoJo Mason, band Ghost Boy, Cory Marks, Eric Etheridge, and Andrew Hyatt. There’s a reason Bamford wanted to include such a large number of fellow artists, and it has everything to do with the spirit of solidarity. “When I got started, I was fortunate to go out on a bunch of tours as basically just opening act,” said Bamford. “So, for me to be able to give an opportunity to all these artists, to be a part of the show and really to have no limitations, it’s important.” Hyatt, one of the artists joining Bamford on the tour, is certainly grateful for the opportunity Bamford has created with this tour. “They’ve just assembled a really good crew of people [and] I’m very excited to be on this tour,” said Hyatt. “I think it’s

Gord bamford: (supplied) great that he’s reached out to the up-andcoming artists, to kind of pull us up instead of trying to keep us at bay. He’s given us a platform and an opportunity to share our music.” Hyatt has recently released a new single as well, titled “I Needed That,” ahead of the new album he’s been working on this year — which means this tour is perfectly timed for him to promote his new music. “Any day playing music is the best day,” said Hyatt. “This is a great way to kick off

the year. . . It’s like a one-two punch, I get to be in front of people in the cities playing songs, seeing the radio stations.” All of the artists joining Bamford have more in common than just their musical talent as well, which is another thing that Bamford feels good about putting together. “I’m really proud that the tour is really all Canadian because I think our Canadian music is as strong as anything in the world,” said Bamford. Bamford is certainly looking forward to returning to Moose Jaw, especially as he knows how impressive a Saskatchewan crowd can be. “To be in a smaller community like that is really what we love to do and obviously Jess being from Saskatchewan is great,” said Bamford. “And the fans out there are amazing. My wife’s a Saskatchewan girl, so I know how much pride they have in their Riders and their music, so it should be good.” Tickets for the #REDNEK Music Fest tour with Gord Bamford and guests are available from the Mosaic Place box office, either online, in person, or by calling 1 (306) 624-2050.

Optimist Club cooks up pancakes for Westmount School community Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The smell of pancakes filled the hallways of Westmount Elementary School as a community service organization hosted a breakfast for hundreds of hungry students and staff. The Friendly City Optimists of Moose Jaw kicked off its sixth year of providing pancake breakfasts for schools by cooking up more than 1,600 flapjacks on Feb. 26 for the Westmount community. Each year the organization picks a public and Catholic school in which to hold its pancake breakfast. Westmount and St. Margaret School are the two recipients this year, with the Optimists to visit the Catholic school on March 17. Nearly 400 staff and students at Westmount were able to partake in pancakes, sausages, oranges and juice during the

breakfast, while nearly 300 people will likely be fed at St. Margaret. The Optimists were able to acquire additional support from the community that allowed them to host the breakfasts, explained breakfast chairwoman Ellen Sjoberg. Smitty’s donated enough pancake mix for the service club to cook more than 50 pans of batter, while podiatrist Dr. Ata Stationwala donated $300 since an Optimist member is his patient and he thought the group does good work. “Our motto is ‘Friend of Youth,’” Sjoberg continued. By supporting youth-focused projects, young people know the organization is on their side and builds confidence in them. Developing camaraderie with other Optimist members and seeing the happy faces of kids are two things that Sjoberg said she enjoys about being an Optimist and the projects it pursues. The pancake breakfast is a fantastic opportunity for students and the commu-

nity to come together to share a meal, said principal Amanda Olson. It also develops a sense of community in the building. “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” she continued. “It fuels their brains to get going and (is) best for learning. It helps them focus (on school and) not (be) focused on being hungry.” There are some students who come to school hungry, so the school has some food available it can provide, such as toast, muffins, fruit or vegetables. How-

I need a car that smells like a cinnamon bun I love that new car smell. The new car smell makes me happy. My first car was not new…and it definitely did not smell new. I think I finally owned a new car by the time I was in my 30’s. It smelled great. Apparently, the new car smell is the conglomeration of all of the new materials, paints, adhesives, etc. It’s the “etc” that is probably the secret to the new car smell. I also like the smell of cinnamon. Cinnamon makes me happy. There has been a group of researchers at the University of Sussex, in Britain, looking into the possibility that pleasant scents may create better drivers, and also improve the well-being of angry drivers. They call this “CARoma” therapy. Who thinks up this stuff!?!? There is no arguing that certain smells make us happy. For me, off the top of my head, it is fresh bread, dill weed and of course cinnamon. For many of us, the scent of cinnamon makes us happy. It brings back happy childhood memories of wonderful desserts and holiday happenings. The CARoma researchers found that pleasant scents like cinnamon, can ease tension in irate drivers. Peppermint and rose scents were also found to be beneficial in making angry drivers happier.

ever, the school does not have a formal or official breakfast program. Olson was excited when the Optimists approached the school wanting to host its annual pancake breakfast. She thought holding the breakfast on Feb. 26 was great since that day was also the kick off for the Pink Shirt anti-bullying campaign that teaches students to be kind. More information about the Optimists can be found at

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor Could this be the answer to road rage? Equally interesting, although maybe not so surprising, unpleasant smells did the opposite for motorists. Bad smells caused more arousal in a negative way for drivers. This could lead to more angry drivers, more aggression and thus more accidents. Apparently, there are some car companies that have been experimenting with numerous scents advertised at improving the car occupant’s well-being. This may however be more of a sales ploy, just like a realtor’s attempt to bring on the sale of a home during an open house with cinnamon or vanilla candles. Either way, we may start to see another option being brought into the new car market, customized scents from the dashboard. Someone just cut in front of you on your way to work? Just press the button on the steering wheel for a puff of peppermint in your face and all is well. For now, maybe just dash some cinnamon powder on your hanging dice or discard some peppermint gum under your car seat.

Kinsmen Club donates $11,500 to support Canada Day festivities Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Tourism Moose Jaw (TMJ) won’t have to scramble to find enough money to host Canada Day and the exciting fireworks show, after the Kinsmen Club donated $11,500 to this year’s event. The club has supported Canada Day ever since the organizing committee — composed of employees from Tourism Moose Jaw and residents — took over managing the event a few years ago, Jacki L’Heureux-Mason, TMJ executive director and committee co-chair, explained on Feb. 28 at the visitors’ centre. “… They’d give a donation, which was awesome. Then you’d have to spend a lot of time running around getting other donations (of $500 and $1,000). This saves us effort (without the pressure) and we can put that into planning, which is a lot more fun for us,” she said. The $11,500 covers about 80 per cent of the total cost to host the festivities in Crescent Park, with the Kinsmen Club the main sponsor of the event. The living library will return for a second year, while the fireworks are expected to occur again at Hamilton Flats. The club thought it would be a good idea to provide more support this year to make it easier on the committee so it didn’t have to worry about finding funds or not having fireworks, explained Kinsmen member Jeremy Hansen. The club also wanted to give more help since Canada Day has activities for children, which is a big focus for the organization. “So we stepped up and gave them money and it’s just a win-win for both of us,” he said.

Photo courtesy Jacki L’Heureux-Mason The money came from fundraisers the Kinsmen hold throughout the year, such as the sports celebrity banquet, the weekly Wednesday Chase the Ace fundraisers at Cask 82, and bartending events, along with general funds in the bank.

It was important to make this donation since most of the members are family men, Hansen added. They know times are tough economically, so it was important for the club to continue to have a presence at Canada Day and support the activities. “We’ve proven as we’ve grown it over the last couple of years that people want to be here to celebrate Canada Day,” L’Heureux-Mason said. “We hope it can become a bit of a tourist destination for us. But for sure, it’s something the community can enjoy.” There will be many activities for all ages — including seniors — and it will be free due to the Kinsmen’s generosity, she continued. The living library — which had 19 booths last year — is expected to grow this year. It allows children to try different sports and activities without spending money on something they might not want to pursue. The living library also gives residents an idea of what is available to do in Moose Jaw, since it can be easy to think there isn’t much to do here, L’Heureux-Mason remarked. “It’s really easy to see there is actually a ton of stuff to do,” she said. Last year about 3,500 people attended the Canada Day festivities, which shattered the record set for Canada 150, when about 2,200 people attended. L’Heureux-Mason believes visitors and residents will put this event on their calendars as something to look forward to in the future.

Classrooms on Ice program exploring the lake ecosystem with students Larissa Kurz

For another year, the Classrooms on Ice program offered by the Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation is putting students out on the frozen lake to learn about the thriving aquatic ecosystem in Buffalo Pound. The ongoing program runs several days a week throughout February and March and takes classrooms of students through hands-on activities that talk about fish and conservation. “It’s kind of a three-pronged approach,” said MJWF president Todd Smith, who also happens to be a teacher himself. “We have three different classrooms set up at Loney’s Point out on Buffalo Pound Lake and the students. . . cycle through them.” One classroom takes students through anatomy and physiology, with a dissection of a fish, and talks about the food web within the ecosystem. Another classroom talks about water quality and the balance of the ecosystem, with a demonstration of soil sampling and looking at macroinvertebrates — like crayfish and insects. The third classroom sets the students up to try their hand at fishing, to talk about conservation and the importance

One of the exciting activities in the Classrooms on Ice program includes a change to drop a hook down a hole and try fishing. (supplied) of a healthy ecosystem. “We actually put them out on the ice and they attempt to catch some of the perch or pike, whatever they happen to hook into,” said Smith. The hands-on experience is meant to encourage students to look at water — and all of the things that live in it —

in a different way. By putting students right out there on the lake, teachers are able to tie in plenty of subjects to explore the importance of water ecosystems, like social sciences, math, even languages. The other goal of the program is to show students how important wildlife conservation is, to inspire the next generation to value nature. “People are only going to conserve what they love and love what they understand,” said Smith. “So, we have to get them out and learning about it, so they end up valuing it and wanting to protect it for future generations.” Priority for the Classrooms on Ice program is given to Moose Jaw schools, although the Wildlife Federation often gets interest from schools further away, such as Lumsden, Regina, and Craik. “Our mandate is to help facilitate conservation activities in and around the Moose Jaw area, but if there are spaces left over at the end, we will open them up to schools from a little further away,” said Smith. This year’s program is already full, but Smith encourages teachers to reach out to the Wildlife Federation early to take part in next year’s program.


Electric vehicle needs pose ethical questions for life cycle analysis

by Ron Walter

The electric vehicle is scheduled to take an increasing share of the vehicle market with 125 million expected globally by 2030, a sharp increase from today’s 5.1 million Vehicles — cars and trucks – account for about one-quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. A significant reduction in these emissions would make a differ-

ence in cutting GHGs. Power for electric vehicles (EVs) requires batteries that use minerals like lithium, cobalt, nickel and graphite. The more exotic minerals – lithium and cobalt – had not

seen much exploration until the battery needs were foreseen. The pressure to supply enough of these minerals for the burgeoning market has opened investment opportunities in exploration. The need for these specific battery constituents exposes an ethical quandary for the EV battery industry. Mining most of them has ethical implications. Lithium is mined mostly from brine salt lakes and dried salt lake flats in desert regions. Peruvian residents are already complaining about the ecological damage caused by mining lithium salts from brine salt beds. Mining lithium uses large quantities of scarce water in these desert-like regions. Cobalt, another vital element in EV batteries, is supplied mostly from the politically unstable Congo in Africa. That country produces 60 per cent of global supply with reports of child labour used in mines clouding the ethical supply. The Congo cobalt domination has seen the term “blood cobalt” applied to minerals from the region. Most of the minerals and new supplies needed for EV batteries will come from countries with less stable political regimes and uncertain human rights laws. The ethics of mining essential minerals for EV batteries casts a pall on the industry. 20031BS0 20032BS0

Battery manufacturers are trying to cut down on the cobalt needed to avoid Congolese mineral supplies but can only go so far. Tesla is among battery manufacturers using renewable energy in the giga-battery factory to keep life cycle emissions down. Finding new mineral sources to replace conflict supplies and the lock China has on many of the minerals opens economic opportunity for lesser developed regions but opens up charges of destroying the environment. A second little known concern about electric vehicles involves a wide range of emissions from these cars. European studies show carbon emissions from EVs vary depending on source of generation for the electricity used. EVs in Norway and Sweden emit far less carbon than in England and Germany, simply because those countries generate most of their power from hydro plants and nuclear plants. In Saskatchewan about half of electricity generation comes from coal-fired plants, making EV driving less eco-friendly than in Ontario where almost three-quarters of power comes from nuclear and hydro with none from coal.

Red meat demand strong, but producer profitability just so/so By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Cattle producers can expect profits slightly above EXPRESS break even in 2020, according to the Farm Credit Canada red meat outlook. Live cattle prices for Alberta of $1.55 a pound are projected for Alberta, an increase of 3.3 per cent. The Alberta price will be less than the five year average of $1.61 pound. This comes after a year when beef prices showed a 10.8 per cent increase. FCC estimates Canadian beef production grew 2.8 per cent in 2019 with strong demand from packers. Packer demand was strong because of five factors: • Strong processing margins and robust beef demand. • Closure of beef plants in eastern Canada. • Idling of a U.S. plant for a few months. • More imports of live cattle into Canada. • Higher culling rates in Canadian beef herds caused by poor weather.


Funds raised for Telemiracle

The “kitchen crew” for the Athabasca Towers residents annual Kinsmen Telemiracle social prepares a slice of strawberry shortcake. The Feb.23 event raised $1,794 for Telemiracle from the strawberry shortcake, a raffle and donations. That brings funds raised in 15 years to almost $32,000. The Kinsmen Telemiracle telethon will run the weekend of March 7 and 8 in Regina. Ron Walter photo

Continued high packer volume is expected. On the input side, feed costs will be slightly lower this year. Variability in hog prices will continue with forecast prices of $78 per hundred weight for Manitoba hogs, same as last year and $1 below the five year average. Hog production in the United States, Canada’s largest export market, increased five per cent last year with 4.5 per cent expected this year. The larger U.S. pork production is offset by demand from China, where African Swine Fever has decimated herds. The outlook suggests a number of trends need watching this year. Sales of meat alternatives — tofu, plant-based meat and

dairy —grew 25 per cent last year but demand for red meat will be robust. Beef and pork remain competitive relative to the small meat alternative market. China usually imports three per cent of pork needs. With swine fever, imports could explode. China consumes 27 per cent of all meat. The U.S.-China trade deal can affect Canadian exports with large Chinese buying required. Removal of tariffs on live hogs makes them more competitive. Continued spread of corona virus could weaken demand for meat around the globe. Ron Walter can be reached at

Moose Jaw RCMP help arrest man who allegedly stole IDs By Moose Jaw Express staff

A vehicle stop by Saskatchewan police west of Caronport eventually led to the arrest of an Alberta man for alleged theft of several items, including drivers’ licences and SIN cards. A Saskatchewan Highway Patrol officer pulled over a blue Dodge Ram on Highway 1 west of Caronport around 4 p.m. on Feb. 22 for a vehicle equipment violation, as the truck had no mud flaps and had a tinted licence plate cover, an RCMP news release explained. The adult male driver — the lone occupant — produced a driver’s licence that did not appear authentic, while the Alberta licence plate did not match the vehicle registration, the news release continued. While the officer was conducting the initial investigation, the motorist drove away, at which point the officer requested the help of Moose Jaw RCMP.

Police followed the truck to Mortlach, where the man exited the truck and entered a residence on Coteau Avenue. RCMP eventually arrested him without incident. Further investigation determined the truck was stolen from Edmonton. A search of the residence in Mortlach yielded multiple stolen identifications including driver’s licences, SIN cards, vehicle registrations — primarily Alberta residents — and electronics. Trevor Stross, 38, from Edmonton is charged with: • Two counts of obstruction • One count of flight from a peace officer • Six counts of failure to comply with previous court conditions • One count of contravention of storage regulations (firearm) • One count of possession of a weapon for a dangerous

purpose • One count one possession of a prohibited weapon • One count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition • Two counts of possession of a prohibited firearm • Two counts of possession of property obtained by crime • One count of possession of methamphetamine • One count of altering a vehicle identification number Stross appeared in Moose Jaw Provincial Court on Feb. 27. The next court date is March 4 at 9:30 a.m. Officers are currently working to identify and notify possible victims. Police are encouraging anyone who has had their identification stolen to report it to their nearest police service or RCMP Detachment.

Aaron Gray, chairman of the Saskatchewan Irrigation Projects Association, was also encouraged with the program’s enhancements. Such changes will help the industry reach its potential, especially since the province’s 10-year growth strategy envisions expanding irrigation to 85,000 acres (34,000 hectares). “Enhanced irrigation coverage has been absolutely favourable to farmers … (and) adding soybeans has been fantastic because it is a good complement crop for rotation,” he said.

Wildlife Federation encouraging young fishermen with upcoming family tournament Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation is once again hosting their Youth & Family Ice Tournament, to encourage families to hit the ice and spend the day outdoors. “The goal of the tournament is to get youth and family out to experience the sport of ice fishing and get them into another winter activity that they can get under their belt,� said MJWF president Todd Smith. The catch-and-release tournament will take place on Buffalo Pound Lake on Mar. 14, beginning at 10 a.m. and running until 2 p.m. Participants will be able to set up on the ice near the boat launch in Buffalo Pound Provincial Park as early as 8:30 a.m. Adults must register with a youth, and there will be prize categories for both — including the largest perch and largest fish for youth fishermen, and largest fish for adults. Because the focus is just on the enjoyment of the sport, the Wildlife Federation is making the tournament as easy as possible.

Shelters and electronics are allowed, and there will be Wildlife members on hand drilling holes for tournament fishermen wherever they’d like to set up. A barbecue lunch will be offered to all participants. “The goal is to keep the kids happy and warm and catching fish,� said Smith. Turnout for the tournament depends on the weather, said Smith, but the Wildlife Federation is hoping to see around 100 people come out again this year. Registration fees are also relatively low for a fishing tournament, at $5 for youth aged 2 to 15, $20 per adult, and $50 per family. Smith will be taking registration prior to the event, as well as on the ice the day of the tournament, but those who register before Feb. 29 will have their bait supplied by Curly’s Bait & Tackle. He also noted that as a change from previous years, those participating will need a day pass into Buffalo Pound Provincial Park to participate.

The Wildlife Federation hopes to see lots of young fishermen out for the family tournament coming up in March. (supplied) To register, contact Smith at either 1 (306) 693-8586 or by emailing

Limited weekend bus route from Moose Jaw to Regina beginning in March Larissa Kurz

The Rider Express transportation service has added a new route in Western Canada, and it will make available limited transportation from Moose Jaw to Regina on weekends. Currently, the new Calgary-Regina route from the bus company will leave from Calgary on Friday evening for overnight service, and make the return trip from Regina to Calgary on Sunday evening. For Moose Jaw passengers hoping to make the journey to Regina, this means that they can catch a ride from Moose Jaw to Regina at 7:15 a.m. on Saturday

mornings, and catch the trip from Regina to Moose Jaw at 9 p.m. on Sunday evenings. “We are planning to connect more routes and more cities between, so this is one of the steps that we are trying to connect Alberta to Saskatchewan,� said Firat Uray, owner. The route will pass through Strathmore, Brooks, and Medicine Hat, Alta. before continuing on through Swift Current and Moose Jaw to Regina, and will launch on Mar. 13 coming from Calgary, and make the return trip leaving Regina on Mar. 15.

Passengers can board at any of the in-between stops, provided they have pre-purchased a ticket to ensure the bus stops at that town. “We require our passengers to buy their ticket ahead of time, so when the bus leaves at the first destination, we know where we have passengers and where we need to stop,� said Uray. Rider Express has been operating in Western Canada for just over a year now, said Uray, and felt it was time to expand further in their service. The company attempted to provide a Moose Jaw to Regina route just over a year ago, although ridership was too low to sustain the route. Uray is hoping that ridership will be higher now that the company has been

operating its western routes a bit longer, so they can expand their services to communities in this area. “We get lots of requests and we want to answer those requests right now, and we are feeling comfortable that we’ll see enough passengers,� said Uray. “Once we build up enough passengers, we will add more days and we’re hoping by April, we can add at least four routes a week.� The Moose Jaw pick-up and drop-off location with Rider Express’s bus route will be at the Fas Gas Plus on the Highway #1 service road, located at 2 - 1700 Lakeview Road. Tickets are available online at, and cost around $30 per oneway trip.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Early morning phone calls poor way to start day

Some thoughts on a variety of topics:

For the past few weeks, the phone rings early in the morning, early enough that if I weren’t already up I would be annoyed at the caller, thinking someone might have died or was in distress. Joyce Walter The calls have been coming For Moose Jaw Express in around 6:30 a.m., a time of day that telemarketers and scam artists should be home sleeping and dreaming about what schemes will be on their agenda for the day. Instead they are already at work setting out to perpetrate bad deeds on folks who are likely half asleep when the phone rings and just might agree to who-knows-what before they have their first coffee or have showered away the cobwebs. I was amused to note on one of the calls that my social insurance number had been accessed by someone who was about to use it for nefarious purposes. Would I care to recite the number to the caller to verify my ownership, the recorded voice asked.

I hung up, then wondered how many people are freaked out when they hear something like this and actually recite the number? I have never been able to recall my number without dredging through my wallet to find my card. My lack of memory serves me well early in the day. The next time the early-birds sought the worm was to tell the person who answered our phone that our Visa card had been compromised in a foreign land. I wasn’t at all worried about such charges showing up and wished the shopper that wasn’t us the best of luck and happy vacation. We do not have that brand of credit card. Shop on. I have always admired people who will do any job to earn a living but I’d admire these callers more if they would get jobs that don’t include phone calls that none of us want to receive — at any time of the day. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Congratulations to the organizing committee and hundreds of volunteers for providing a most successful Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Moose Jaw has always been known for the capability of putting together world-class events and this time was no exception. Curlers and fans alike have expressed considerable praise for the Mosaic Place venue, meeting all expectations of Curling Canada and the local committee. As I sat there watching the games, I couldn’t help but

recall the world junior curling competition held here in 1979 — the year the Civic Centre roof leaked right up until a few minutes before the games began. Pails were set in strategic locations to catch the drips, and staff and volunteers worked feverishly to ensure the games could go on. I suspect very few visitors knew about the behind-thescenes or roof-top activity that went on before the first rocks were thrown. They most likely remembered the hospitality shown by our community, the pin exchanges, friendly drivers and the mayor of the day who was on hand for most of the draws. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• And finally, a celebration that can’t be missed — March 7 is Crown Roast of Pork Day. Don’t know why but there you have it. I wonder how busy the local butcher shops and meat departments will be as customers rush in for a crown roast of pork. There might be a sale.

Local potash miners make top Saskatchewan employers’ list By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express


EXPRESS Potash miner K+S Canada earned a spot on Saskatchewan’s top employers for the seventh year in a row. The German-based company operates a potash mine northeast of Moose Jaw near Bethune. Reasons why K+S was chosen by the Mediacorp process include employee en-

vironment. A Plus-time program offers employees 40 hours a year time for needed family appointments, elder care or personal time. The company assists with retirement planning, contributes to a defined benefits pension plan with phased-in work options for the transition to retirement. The LEED certified head office in Saskatoon features a rooftop deck, sunny lunch room and provides indoor bicycle storage, shower stalls and heated underground parking.

Women of Zimbabwe contributed to this year’s World Day of Prayer

By Moose Jaw Express staff This year’s theme for World Day of Prayer is “Rise! Take your mat and walk,” which women in the African country of Zimbabwe put together based on the Bible text of John 5:2-9a. St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church will host this year’s event, which begins at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 6. A coffee social will follow after the service concludes. There will be elevator access to the church — located at 1064 Third Avenue Northwest — via the parking lot at the back of the church. The Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada (WICC) co-ordinates the annual World Day of Prayer (WDP) and is one of the original founders of this prayer movement. It encourages more than 1,150 Canadian communities to participate in the prayer day on or near March 6. WICC encourages participating churches to reflect on the challenges Zimbabwe has encountered during its steps to independence during the last 60 years, according to a news release. The writing team that put together the program has shared the obstacles that women there have met, along with the hopes the women have for the future. These experiences invite everyone into prayer and support. World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church event that began 98 years ago to bridge social, geographic and political barriers in more than 170 countries. The weekend of prayer begins in Samoa, nearly 4,000 kilometres east of Brisbane, Australia. Prayer in several native languages then travels throughout the world, through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Australia and the Americas. “Together we pursue justice, peace and reconciliation by standing together in prayer and action,” the news release said, adding an international committee based in New York City helps oversee preparations for the day and supports national committees and organizations in participating countries. Offerings received during World Day of Prayer will help transform prayers into actions in the form of project grants that empower women and children in Canada and throughout the world. All regions share in the grants, with consideration given to the greatest need. Through WDP offerings, WICC has distributed more than $2.5 million during the last 35 years, the news release added. The vision is to restore hope to women and children touched by injustice. Visit for more information.

Mosaic Corp., which operates the Mosaic potash mine at Belle Plaine, returned to the top employers after a three-year absence. Mosaic was on the list from 20132017. Reasons for Mosaic’s return to the list include encouragement for healthy choices via lunch and learn sessions and subsidized access to an onsite fitness centre. Company employees share in a range of financial benefits from defined contribution pension plan to matching RRSP contributions, year-end bonuses and new

employee referral bonus. Employees get time off to volunteer and charitable efforts focus on food, water and local community investment. Companies with a significant Moose Jaw presence on the top employer list included Harvard Developments, Information Services Corp, SaskPower and SaskTel. Companies must apply to earn a spot on the list. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Saskatchewan. Ombudsman Saskatchewan promotes and protects fairness and integrity in the design and delivery of government services. They take complaints about provincial government ministries, agencies, Crown corporations and many health entities. They also take complaints about municipal entities.

Resident proposes ways to preserve the historic Natatorium building Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw express

With the Natatorium having sat unused for 25 years, one resident is offering several suggestions to preserve the heritage building so it continues to bring life to Crescent Park. Michel Labonte spoke to city council during its Feb. 24 regular meeting and offered five recommendations to safeguard the structure and establish it for future uses. His first recommendation had been to learn how much it would cost to demolish the Nat’s concrete pool, including the old floor around the pool, and have the debris removed and foundation solidified. However, he changed his mind about this idea after seeing a picture of the pool. Instead, he suggested that an appraisal be done to learn how much it would cost to install a new floor over the old pool and build an adequate entrance at the back with proper balcony and wheelchair access. Or, a wheelchair access could be constructed at the front by the northeast door.

Furthermore, a sprinkler and ventilation system could be installed where the old pool was, with both systems coming from the former YMCA next door. This would allow the public to use the building regularly and make it a new gathering place, including for youths. Labonte’s third recommendation was for council to request grant funding from the federal and provincial governments so they could “help protect this important historic heritage site that our pioneers built for the community.” This refurbished building would add long-term value to the downtown and to the community. “There is not much left on the east side of historic buildings,” he continued, noting such buildings as schools and the hospital have all been demolished. The fourth recommendation was to propose a question to voters during the November municipal in a non-binding referendum election about whether taxpayers would support an investment of munic-

ipal money to help the Natatorium. Labonte thought a special levy instituted for a few years could help bring “this ghost back to life” so future generations could appreciate the building. Labonte’s fifth recommendation was to postpone the demolition of the YMCA building for a few years. Instead, he thought parts of that building could be used to complement the future use of the Nat. He pointed out there is already a tunnel that connects the main floor of the Nat to the second floor of the Y. If the YMCA building is demolished, Labonte wanted to see the building’s bricks recycled similar to the ones at the Natatorium. “The main question in my mind, irrelevant of what’s happening with the outside pool and irrelevant of what happens with the Y, is do we want the Natatorium to be part of our future or not?” he remarked. Otherwise, he added, the structure will be torn down and council can add another picture of a former building to the walls

in city hall. In a report to city council, city administration said it would cost $6.5 million to renovate the Natatorium, with an additional $4 million needed to build separate change rooms, staff rooms and mechanical rooms for the outdoor pool. Meanwhile, there is $295,000 in the budget this year to tear down the YMCA building. “In a community that espouses heritage, it’s kind of a telling sign that the Natatorium sits there year after year after year,” said Coun. Brain Swanson, who pointed out the Natatorium had a new roof installed 25 years ago after the Kinsmen Sportsplex pool was built. This means its shingles will need to be replaced soon. The Natatorium is not on council’s capital budget list for renovations, Swanson added. He thought it was good for council to be reminded that the building has sat there for 25 years with no plans in place to fix it. Council then voted to receive and file Labonte’s presentation.

Bylaw change would let medical office be used as care home Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The owners of a medical office building want to convert the structure into a care home to look after residents with health needs, but require discretionary approval from city council first. AMN Royalty Care Inc. owns the Mualla Professional Building at 290 Fourth Avenue Northeast — across the street from the former Union Hospital site — and want to turn the building into a type 3 residential care home for up to 20 seniors, while also offering respite, palliative and transition care for adults. This property is currently zoned as CS community service/institutional district, which does not list residential care homes (type 3) as an acceptable use in the district, according to a report from city administration. The applicant is pursuing the zoning bylaw amendment to add this use to the district and would subsequently apply for the discretionary use approval if the amendment passes. The CS district lists type 1 and type 2 residential care VILLAGE OF CARONPORT NOTICE OF PREPARATION OF ASSESSMENT ROLL 2020

Notice is hereby given that the Assessment Roll for the Village of Caronport for the year 2020 has been prepared and is open to inspection in the office of the assessor from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Monday to Friday, March 2nd to May 4th, 2020. A Bylaw pursuant to section 214 of “The Municipalities Act” has been passed and the assessment notices have been sent as required. Any person who wishes to appeal against their assessment is required to file their notice of appeal in writing, accompanied by a $300.00 fee for each assessment being appealed which will be returned if the appeal is successful, with: The Assessor, Village of Caronport, Box 550, Caronport, SK S0H 0S0 by the 4th of May, 2020. Dated this, 2nd day of March, 2020 Gina Hallborg, Assessor

homes as discretionary uses; type 1 allows the number of residents in the care home, excluding staff, to be no more than five people, while type 2 allows for up to 15 residents, excluding staff. Type 3 allows for more than 15 residents to live in a care home. During its Feb. 24 regular meeting, council voted unanimously to have city administration advertise the proposed zoning bylaw change that would include adding residential care homes (type 3) as a discretionary use in the CS district, while also preparing an amendment to the bylaw.

In its rezoning application, AMN Royalty explained that lower cost, high-quality care homes are in high demand in Moose Jaw. Receiving approval to rezone the district to allow for type 3 would ensure the room rates are affordable. The building also meets the Saskatchewan Health Authority’s requirements for size and safety for a personal care home, the application added. Moreover, the structure is in an ideal location to meet the needs of seniors and could provide several amenities. The next regular council meeting is March 9.



The Council of the City of Moose Jaw intends to consider a bylaw pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to amend the City of Moose Jaw’s Zoning Bylaw No. 5346.

The Council of the City of Moose Jaw intends to consider revisions to Bylaw No. 4760, The Boulevard Bylaw with the adoption of a NEW Bylaw No. 5610, Boulevard Bylaw.

The proposed amendment will add Type 3 Residential Care Homes to the CS – Community Service/Institutional District as a Discretionary Use. Type 3 Residential Care Homes are defined in the Zoning Bylaw as a care home with more than 15 residents, excluding staff.

Pursuant to Section 8 of The Cities Act, the purpose of Bylaw No. 5610, Boulevard Bylaw is to establish minimum standards for the proper maintenance of boulevards in the City and provide for the safety, health and welfare of people and the protection of people and property. The current Bylaw No. 4760, The Boulevard Bylaw was passed and enacted on May 25, 1992.

City Hall Council Notes Nearly $6M to be spent this year to replace cast iron pipes By Moose Jaw Express staff

Nearly $6 million will be spent this year to replace more than 2,300 metres of aging and failing water main pipes in four locations in Moose Jaw. At its executive committee meeting on Feb. 24, city council voted to allocate $5.8 million — approved through the 2020 budget process — to replace 2,360 metres of cast iron water main pipes as part of phase 5 of the program, according to a news release. The four locations to be replaced are: • Stadacona Street East from Sixth Avenue to 10th Avenue Northeast (790 metres) • Fairford Street East from Main Street to Second Avenue Northeast (360m) • High Street West from Main Street to Third Avenue Northwest (540m) • Third Avenue Northwest from Oxford Street to Macdonald Street (670m) Council also gave conditional approval to a further 1,330 metres of water main replacement across three locations, provided the required $4.5 million can be acquired through federal grants, the news release said. The three other locations are: • Third Avenue Northwest from Caribou Street to Oxford Street (220m) • Second Avenue Northwest from Oxford Street to Hall Street (190m) • Caribou Street West from Fourth Avenue to Ninth Avenue (920m) Areas selected for the 2020 program have experienced a high number of water main breaks in recent years that have been expensive repairs. In 2019 the City of Moose Jaw spent about $2.4 million to repair 109 water main breaks across the municipality. The municipality will soon deliver affected property owners further information on the program, along with invitations to attend upcoming water main information sessions for a detailed overview, including communications plans.

Updated city policy indicates which public spaces can have alcohol Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Community groups that want to have alcohol at their events will soon have a better idea of which locations are eligible and which require discretionary approval from city council. During its Feb. 24 regular meeting, council voted unanimously to adopt an updated alcohol use events policy (city parks and buildings/facilities) that better aligns with practices and procedures as used by the City of Moose Jaw and the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA).

process that has worked and should remain in place. Background Council adopted the previous alcohol use policy in June 2007, which the parks and recreation advisory board had recommended after several public requests to allow events with alcohol to occur in Crescent Park. When council adopted the outdoor events policy last July, the parks department indicated amendments to the alcohol-use event policy would come forward since they were outdated and did not accurately reflect the buildings, amenities or parks that exist. Under the new policy, eligible locations are sites where “beer gardens” have been commonly approved in the past, have operated with minimal or no issues, and are primarily used or accessed by people over age 19, the report continued. Meanwhile, the locations that are discretionary use are sites where “beer gardens” may not have been approved in the past due to the nature of the site or event, and the number of youths who may be present. There is no mention in the updated policy document of Main Street, which is concerning since there are sometimes beer gardens in conjunction with Sidewalk Days, said Coun. Scott McMann.

Policy updates According to the report, some items in the policy that have been updated include: • The policy name of alcohol use events policy (city parks and facilities) has been updated and the definitions have been updated to reflect the new name. • Approval factors have been added that would be considered within the general principles section to ensure the site and type of event, the history of the event and the main focus of events is considered when applications are approved. • The list of eligible parks, buildings and facilities has been updated to remove the Civic Centre and replace it with Mosaic Place. The TransCanada Ball Diamonds have also been removed as they primarily used for youth events. • The Yara Centre and Tatawaw Park have been added to the discretionary use locations list. • The application process and procedures have been clearly identified for eligible and discretionary use spots • The conditions of approval section has been updated to reflect the requirements of the municipality’s outdoor events policy adopted last July. • The insurance requirements have been updated to reflect the current municipal liability requirements. • The timeline for events section has been removed and incorporated into the procedure section. • A section regarding responsibilities has been added to clearly identify the respective roles related to the policy.

INTENT The proposed Zoning Bylaw amendment will allow Council to consider adding dwelling units as a Discretionary Use accessory to a commercial development in the Hamlet District.

City Hall Council Notes

Archway from former Russell Block Building to be rebuilt in Crescent Park Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Community groups will receive $31,500 in grant funding this year to help with their capital project upgrades, including the reconstruction of an archway — from the former Russell Block Building — in Crescent Park. The community projects (capital grant) program, which the parks and recreation department administers, is now in its 16th year, according to a department report. The program’s purpose is to enable organizations to undertake capital development or renovation projects that result in short- and long-term benefits to the community, the report continued. Projects must be related to the improvement of parks or buildings that provide recreation, sports, arts, or cultural opportunities. All developments must have a minimum lifespan of five years, while the City of Moose Jaw must own the buildings or lands. Organizations can receive up to 50 per cent of the total cost of the project, to a maximum of 50 per cent of the available funding available in a year. Unused funding at the end of the year will be carried forward for the 2021 community projects (capital grant) program. During its Feb. 24 regular meeting, council voted unanimously to accept the funding allocations proposed in the community projects (capital grant) program, and that any applications received after the deadline be considered based on the approved policy guidelines and that the parks and rec department administers. Council discussion One project that caught the attention of

The Russell Block building was built in 1910 at the corner of River Street West and First Avenue Northwest and was demolished in 2010. An archway near it was moved to a home on Langdon Crescent; the archway will soon be moved again, this time to Crescent Park. Photo courtesy SaskHistoryOnline Coun. Heather Eby was the installation of a brick archway in Crescent Park; the archway used to be part of the Russell Block Building, which was located at the corner of River Street West and First Avenue Northwest. The municipality took ownership of the archway after the demolition of the Russell Block Building in 2010, city administration explained. It was then reassembled on a private property on Langdon Crescent. However, that property is now being sold and the home is being demolished, so the archway has to be relocated. Through the heritage advisory committee, the department approached the Cres-

cent Park Foundation to see if that organization would be interested in acquiring it; it was. The group applied for grant funding and will cover the remaining costs to install it. “I want to thank the private citizens who kept the archway in such good condition and conserved the heritage aspect of it,” said Coun. Crystal Froese, “and also thank the Crescent Park Foundation to undertake this project on their own and working alongside parks to find the location and have it moved there.” Capital grant projects • Crescent Park Foundation (Russell Block archway): $4,000

• Wakamow Valley Authority (Paashkwow Park Disc Golf phase 2): $5,000 • Hillcrest Golf Course (clubhouse expansion phase 3): $1,000 • Gymtastiks of MJ (LED light replacement): $1,100 • Cosmo Club (pickleball court installation): $1,800 • Baseball association (McCullough Park shack upgrades): $1,600 • Minor girls’ fastball (diamond upgrades): $7,500 • Moose Jaw and District Seniors’ Association (XYZ Auditorium floor upgrades): $2,500 • Minor football (irrigation upgrades): $7,000 According to several sources, River Street was a booming area in 1910. This prompted E.N. Hopkins, Arthur Latham, and Yip Foo — entrepreneurs of Welsh, Canadian and Chinese origins — to erect the Russell Block Building. The structure was built in the Chicago School style and was one of the most modern buildings in Western Canada. According to the book Moose Jaw: People, Places, History, the building “became famous for its beautiful façade, its marvellous spiral staircase, and decorative ceiling.” It was a well-used and multicultural building, housing Latham’s Hardware Store, the Chinese Methodist Mission, a pool hall, a Chinse importer, a barber shop, and offices of the Royal North West Mounted Police.

School buses still can’t park overnight on streets, council says School bus drivers will not be able to park their vehicles on Moose Jaw’s streets after their shifts are finished despite an attempt to have the traffic bylaw changed. During the most recent meeting of the Public Works, Infrastructure and Environment Advisory Committee, group members put forward a recommendation to city council to have section 25(2) of the traffic bylaw amend-

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express ed so school buses could be included in the exemptions for oversized vehicles that park overnight on city streets. Council, during its Feb. 24 regular meeting, voted 6-1 against the motion, with only Mayor Fraser Tolmie in favour. Coun. Chris Warren, a representative on the advisory committee, told council that committee members raised concerns about revisions made to the traffic bylaw sometime ago. Included in those revisions were exemptions for recreational vehicles and public works vehicles engaged in municipal business; these vehicles were exempt from oversized vehicle bylaw requirements. VILLAGE OF TUGASKE NOTICE OF PREPARATION OF ASSESSMENT ROLL 2020

Notice is hereby given that the Assessment Roll for the Village of Tugaske for the year 2020 has been prepared and is open to inspection in the office of the assessor from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the following days, Monday to Friday, March 6th to April 7th, 2020.

“The feedback is it’s inconvenient for some of the school bus operators to return the bus to their compound at the end of their rounds,” Warren said. “They would appreciate (being) exempt so they can park on their streets.” While some committee members were concerned about past revisions of the traffic bylaw, other members pointed out the bylaw has limits on what oversized vehicles are allowed overnight on streets for certain reasons, he continued. This includes sightlines on streets, the narrowness of residential roads, traffic flow, accessibility, and noise when buses are warming up. The committee asked city administration about how other municipalities in Saskatchewan handle this situation. The city solicitor informed members that the traffic bylaws in Regina, Saskatoon and Weyburn don’t allow for school bus exemptions in their respective traffic bylaws. Warren guessed that was because of similar reasons as mentioned above.

A Bylaw pursuant to section 214 of “The Municipalities Act” has been passed and the assessment notices have been sent as required. Any person who wishes to appeal against their assessment is required to file their notice of appeal in writing, accompanied by a $50.00 fee for each assessment being appealed which will be returned if the appeal is successful, with: The Assessor, Village of Tugaske, Box 159, Tugaske, SK S0H 4B0 by the 7th of April, 2020. Dated this, 6th day of March, 2020. Daryl Dean, Assessor

Zoning bylaw change lets Canadian Tire proceed with property upgrades It should be smoother sailing for Canadian Tire to develop property on the exhibition grounds, now that the proper zoning amendments have been approved. During its Feb. 24 regular meeting, council unanimously gave three readings to — and thus official approval of — a zoning bylaw amendment that would rezone portions of 250 Thatcher Drive East to C3 vehicle-oriented commercial district from CS community service district. Canadian Tire purchased 4.78 hectares (11.95 acres) for $3.1 million from the City of Moose Jaw in December. The company intends to develop a retail shopping centre in the southeast corner of the property. This property must be rezoned to C3 from CS as per the offer to purchase agreement. Council appointments Coun. Dawn Luhning has been appointed deputy mayor for the next two months, from March 1 until April 30, or

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express until a successor is appointed. Meanwhile, Coun. Scott McMann was appointed chairman of the executive committee for the next two months, from March 1 until April 30, or until a successor is appointed. Lastly, Coun. Heather Eby has been appointed chairwoman of the personnel committee for the next two months, from March 1 until April 30, or until a successor is appointed. Inquiries The City of Moose Jaw released its new website and a new phone app recently. According to city administration, city hall has received 179 inquiries through the app. Of those inquiries, residents have generated 53 per cent of the complaints/concerns, while municipal staff has submitted 47 per cent of the complaints/concerns through the app.

As of Feb. 24, 634 people had downloaded the app. “I use it. It works slick,” said Coun. Crystal Froese. “I had a response back in 24 hours.” City administration also informed council about two other topics that have been discussed lately. First, the public works department is still in conversation with Canadian National Rail (CNR) about construction work on the tracks that run across Main Street North. The department has heard work to fix the tracks and surrounding road could happen this summer. Second, city hall intends to leave up decorative lights that were hung in trees on River Street West as part of the preparations for the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. However, all the pots with trees that also had lights will be removed. The next regular council meeting is Monday, March 9.

COVID-19 Virus and Lessons from History By Richard Dowson, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan

The 2019 Coronavirus, like many viruses, including the virus that causes Multiple Sclerosis, originate in animals. It is highly pathogenic with harmful effects. This Virus originated in Wuhan City, China and is spreading across the world. So far over 81,000 people have been infected. Many have died. Although the death rate is low at just over 2%, it is a serious problem. Prevention means washing your hands regularly – not shaking hands – avoiding crowds or events where the virus could be present and wearing a Blue and White surgical mask when appropriate. Consider an Historical Comparison: Coronavirus today and the 1918-19 Spanish Flu Epidemic in Saskatchewan Over the years there are variations of the “Flu” and how it originates. The Spanish Flu of 1918-19 is thought to have originated in birds. ‘Flu’ viruses are very adaptive and cross species. The Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918-19 killed an estimated 100 million people world wide and 50,000 in Canada. The Spanish Flu in Saskatchewan was most pronounced between November 1918 and May 1919. Joan Champ, in her 2003 Paper (see note) said, “By 1920, it was calculated that a total of 5,018…” people in Saskatchewan had died from the Spanish Flu. The high-

est contraction and death rates were in November 1918 when people, gathering for Armistice events came in contact with disease carriers. Over the following 6 months 4,821 died in Saskatchewan, an average of 688 each month. (Joan Champ) The population of Saskatchewan in 1921 was 758,000. The death of 5.018 people resulted in the death of about 6.6% of the population. Isolation and Quarantine In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 people are being isolated. Two week quarantines are in effect for many. The 1918-19 Spanish Flu hit urban centres hard. They had double the rate of infection compared to rural areas suggesting rural isolation inhibited the spread of the disease. Small Saskatchewan villages suffered. According to Champ the death rate in villages was “… 12.6 people out of 1,000…”. This indicates easy, casual contact in villages helped spread the virus. Death from Spanish Flu usually “… occurred on the tenth day of sickness.” (Champ) The Spanish Flu began with symptoms like the ‘common cold’ – joint pain, weakness and chills. Although a guess, one assumes COVUD-19 begins the same way. As the Spanish Flu infection grew the

victim’s fingers became blue, the result of poor circulation. The lungs were inefficient and not able to provide enough oxygen to the blood; there was delirium and, according to Champ, “… the tongue (became) dry and brown; the whole surface of the body (became) blue and the temperature fell.” The result was death. This fits the medical records of Private John Farrell, 781095, WW I Veteran from Tugaske who died in Regina, March 6, 1919 from Spanish Flu. He was in the hospital for other reasons, contracted the Flu there and when his body turned blue he was moved from the Hospital to a Parish Hall used as a Hospice. John Farrell died 4 days later. He is buried in Tugaske, Saskatchewan. Lessons from the Spanish Flu Hospital and medical facilities were totally inadequate for such an overwhelming catastrophe. Hotels, schools, community halls and parish halls were used to accommodate the sick. Another pandemic would cause the same problem. Being isolated and away from large crowds reduced the spread of the Spanish Flu and kept many safe today. Avoiding common gathering places during an outbreak is a good idea. The COVID-19 virus is spread by droplets

Patterson wins NDP Wakamow nomination

Long-time Casino Moose Jaw employee to face Sask Party’s Greg Lawrence in coming election Melissa Patterson knows she’s going to have a battle on her hands in the coming Saskatchewan election, but it’s one she’s both excited for and looking forward too after being named the NDP candidate for Moose Jaw Wakamow. Close to 100 NDP supporters filled the auditorium at Timothy Eaton Gardens for the nomination meeting, which featured Patterson taking on city councillor Crystal Froese for the right to face Sask Party’s incumbent MLA Greg Lawrence in the next election. It was Patterson who emerged with the majority of the 89 votes cast, touching off a happy celebration among herself and her supporters and drawing congratula-

Gamers Association presents record donation to Mighty Munchies program Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Gamers Association had yet another successful year hosting their annual Summer and Winter Gamer’s Expo (GAX), which means they were recently able to present a record donation of $3,000 to the Moose Jaw & District Food Bank’s Mighty Munchies program. “It’s our biggest donation to date, so that means we are doing something right,” said Kristian Sjoberg, spokesman for the MGJA. The Mighty Munchies program is a relatively new initiative at the Food Bank. It focuses on providing a baggie of snack items for kids to ensure they have enough nutritional items to get them through their school day. “Kids need at least three snacks a day at school. They’re always hungry and eating,” said Deann Little, development manager at the Food Bank. “And so we’ve used the donations coming in right now for easy items like granola bars, fruit cups, juice boxes and things like that to put into these bags.” The MJGA’s donation will be used specifically to purchase more nut-free items for the snack bags, as well as fresh produce for a more nutritious element, said Little. For the MJGA, it was the perfect initiative to focus this year’s fundraising efforts on, as they wanted to support a program that helps kids in the community. It’s also satisfying to Sjoberg because hosting an event like the GAX is a unique way for people to come out and

Because the Mighty Munchies program really only launched last year, the MJGA’s ongoing support right

from the beginning has been very helpful in getting the word out about the program. It also means their donation is the largest one yet for the program. “This was something that I really wanted to implement and I’m just excited that Kristian and the rest of the group from the Gamers has come on board and supported this program,” said Little. “When you can feed their tummies, you can feed their minds.” The Food Bank is always in need of monetary donations, to be able to purchase needed items for the Mighty Munchies program, and so the MJGA has issued a challenge to any business or individual in the community to sponsor a Mighty Munchies bag. “When you sponsor a bag, you actually get your name put on that bag, so we’re hoping that more people and more companies come out and take our challenge to really support the local food bank, not just with food donations but cash donations as well,” said Sjoberg. The Moose Jaw Food Bank is now able to take all forms of monetary donations, both at their office on 3rd Ave as well as online at The MGJA will return with their 2020 Summer GAX on July 10-12, with plenty of gaming opportunities in between.

Moose Jaw sweeps home-and-home with last-place Swift Current, fall by one goal to first place Prince Albert Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors this past weekend showed a solid step in the right direction for the young squad. The Warriors picked up a home-and-home sweep of the Swift Current Broncos, winning 6-2 at Mosaic Place on Friday before rolling out a 4-2 win in the rematch the next night in Swift Current. They closed out their threegames-in-three-nights stretch with a hard-fought 3-2 loss in Prince Albert. As a result, the Warriors now hold a 14-40-4-0 record and sit eight points up on the last-place Broncos with 10 games remaining in the season. Raiders 3, Warriors 2 On paper, it would seem as if a game between the East Division-leading Raiders and last-place Warriors would be a serious mismatch. But this is a Tribe that’s found a new gear to its game as of late, and they came a couple shots away from pulling off the upset. Cade Hayes scored late in the first period to take a 1-1 tie out of the opening frame and Ryder Korczak gave the Warriors a 2-1 lead early in the second, but that wouldn’t be enough as Prince Albert would tie the game before the second was out. Aliaksei Protas scored the game winner 1:12 into the third. Boston Bilous made 43 saves in the loss, Carter Serhyenko had 14 stops for the Raiders. Warriors 4, Broncos 2 The win, combined with their 6-2 victory at Mosaic Place a night earlier, marked the first set of back-to-back

Warriors defenceman Daemon Hunt made his return to the line-up on Saturday. wins for the local squad since early November, when they defeated the Winnipeg Ice 3-2 on Nov. 8 and followed with a 3-1 win over the Broncos on Nov. 9. “It’s been a long time since we strung two wins together, so just getting a little bit of success helps with everything,” Warriors head coach Mark O’Leary said on WarriorsTV. “We’ve talked all along that you try and drive

home a message and work on these progressions, but if you’re not finding success it’s hard to buy in. “So I’m proud of the group here, it wasn’t a pretty one tonight, but we’ve had pretty ones where we’ve come up on the short end of the stick so it’s good for the boys.” Korczak and Logan Doust scored to give the Warriors a 2-1 lead out of the first before Tate Popple added the game winner and Calder Anderson an insurance marker in the second. Korczak also added an assist, Eric Alarie had two helpers. Bilous got the start in goal and turned aside 32 shots, the Warriors had 34 on Isaac Poulter. Warriors 6, Broncos 2 The Warriors snapped a 13-game losing skid with their win over the Broncos to start the weekend. “It felt really good, it’s great to get a win with the guys and we’re excited to come out for the games coming up, so it was really good,” said Warriors defenceman Daemon Hunt, who played in his first game since suffering a severe cut to his arm that required nearly two months of recovery. “It was tough watching, we didn’t get the results we wanted. But it’s nice to come home and give the fans what they deserve and get a win on home ice, that’s great.” Martin Lang would score once and finish with four points, Popple and Cade Hayes had two goals each and Korczak their other marker. Brock Gould had 26 saves to earn the win, the Warriors fired 38 at Poulter.

AAA Warriors take playoff series lead over Notre Dame Warriors win opener 4-2, take 3-2 victory in Game 2 heading into series clincher Monday night Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw AAA Warriors were a win away from the second round of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League playoffs heading into action a week ago Monday.

Moose Jaw AAA Warriors head coach Trevor Weisgerber was back behind the bench after recovering from a kidney transplant.

The Warriors won the first two games of their best-of-three quarter-final series with the Notre Dame Hounds last week, winning 4-2 in the opener on Thursday, Feb. 27 at Mosaic Place before battling to a 3-2 win in Game 2 in Wilcox on Sunday, Mar. 1. Game 3 was slated for Monday, Mar 2 back in Moose Jaw, with the score unavailable as of press time. As the scores would indicate, things certainly weren’t easy in either contest – and especially in Game 2. Notre Dame took a 1-0 lead into the final period, but much like they’ve done all season, a final-frame surge would be the difference in the contest. Parker Jasper tied the game with a power play goal 45 seconds into the third, Max Wanner made it 2-1 just over a minute later and Jasper added the game-winner with 4:22 remaining in the contest. Brendan Kerr would pull the Hounds back within one with 3:37 to play, but that would be as close as they’d get. Will Lavigne had their marker in the first. Chase Coward made 31 saves in the Warriors goal, Jared Picklyk stopped 24 for Notre Dame.

Warriors forward Atley Calvert celebrates scoring his team’s second goal in Game 1. The series opener saw team captain Atley Calvert score a hat trick and Sam Boldt net the winner with 4:03 left in the game. “You’re always going to have to have tough games in the playoffs, so you have to find a way to win and you have to battle hard,” Boldt said. “We have to keep on

playing well and the way we’ve shown, if we do, we should have a chance.” Jonah Jelley and Kevin Anderson scored for Notre Dame. Coward turned aside 28 shots, Picklyk had 30 saves.

Clippers win ACAC women’s volleyball championship

Briercrest College defeats Red Deer in gold medal game to win first title since 2015-16; men’s team falls in bronze medal game Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Briercrest College Clippers headed into the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference women’s volleyball championship tournament knowing that if everything played out according to plan, they’d find themselves wearing gold this past weekend. That’s exactly what happened. The Clippers defeated the Red Deer College Queens 3-2 (21-25, 25-20, 20-25, 25-23, 15-12) in an epic backand-forth battle in the gold medal final at Medicine Hat College on Saturday, capping a perfect weekend with their first ACAC title since 2015-16. Becky Garner capped an incredible ACAC campaign with 31 kills in the gold medal game and was named the tournament’s most valuable player during the post-game ceremony. Faith Buhler added 13 kills in the final, while libero Kirsty Kindrachuck led the defence with 17 digs, Reece Harder added 14 and setter Ashley Erickson 12. Mikayla Benterud, who led the ACAC with 64 service aces through the season, added another three in the gold medal game and led the tournament with 10 for the weekend. The final would be the only serious challenge the Clippers (22-2 regular season) would face, as they steamrolled both The King’s University (20-4) and NAIT (9-15) in their first two contests. In the semifinal against King’s, Garner recorded 16 kills to lead all front row

players as the Clippers would take a 3-0 (25-23, 25-18, 25-19) win. Buhler picked up nine kills, Kindrachuck and Harder added 15 and 13 digs respectively. That contest carried extra weight as the semifinal winners would receive an automatic bye into the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association championship due to the CCAA awarding the ACAC a wild-card berth at the beginning of the season. Briercrest opened the tournament with

a comfortable 3-0 (25-9, 25-20, 25-21) win over the Ooks, with Harder and Garner each picking up 11 kills. Garner added nine digs to go along with eight from Mia Harder; Benterud added four service aces. The Clippers – ranked second in Canada from the start of the season – will now advance to the CCAA championship from Mar. 11-14 at CEGEP Garneau in Quebec City. **** The Clippers men’s volleyball team

carried a 14-10 record as the South Division’s fourth seed into their ACAC tournament and ended up putting together a fourth-place showing in Lethbridge. Things got off to a solid start for Briecrest, as they upset the top seed out of the North Division – the 20-4 NAIT Ooks – 3-1 (20-25, 25-18, 25-11, 2520) in their opening match. Bryton Codd picked up right where he left off in the regular season with a 34kill performance, while Karym Coleman put down 15 kills. Brady Watchel had 28 digs, Davis Borden added 13. That would be the last bit of good news for the Clippers, though, as they ran into the Red Deer Kings in their semifinal and fell 3-0 (25-20, 25-13, 25-19). Coleman had 16 kills, Watchel nine digs in the loss. Things were better in the bronze medal game, but Briercrest wouldn’t be able to find the win, falling 3-2 (22-25, 2025, 25-23, 15-12) to the SAIT Trojans (17-7). Coleman again led the offence with 28 kills and added 18 digs, while Codd had 13 kills and 13 digs. Wachtel added 16 digs, Borden 11. Red Deer defeated Lethbridge 3-1 (2325, 25-19, 25-20, 25-23) to win the ACAC men’s volleyball title, with both teams advancing to the CCAA championship at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, N.B. from Mar. 11-14.

Moose Jaw high school wrestlers earn 12 provincial berths Solid showing for local competitors at SHSAA regionals in Prince Albert Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw athletes headed into the Saskatchewan High School Athletic Association regional wrestling championships this past weekend in Prince Albert, with Peacock’s Kyle Yamniuk high on the list. The provincial team member was the reigning bronze medalist in the male 62kg division at SHSAA provincials and was coming off a successful season leading up to the event. In the end, Yamniuk lived up to the advance billing. The Grade 11 standout went unbeaten

through his four matches on Saturday, and dominated more and more as the tournament went on – defeating Swift Current’s Tim Treen 10-0 and Maidstone’s Colton Walde 10-0 before downing Nipawin’s Ritchy Brundage by pinfall in 2:01 and capping the event with a pin in 1:10 over Prince Albert’s Logan Bair in the first-place match. Yamniuk would end up as the only regional winner from Moose Jaw schools, and one of 12 competitors to finish in the top four in their respective divisions and earn provincial berths. Four other male competitors reached the final in their weight classes. Peacock’s Matthew Knox lost his lone match in the 41-kg division, the same result as Kayce Owens in the 47-kg class. Things were far tougher for Peaock’s Davin Miller in the 69-kg class, as he recorded pinfall wins over Swift Current’s Jared Steinley and La Ronge’s Tremayne Veteri before losing a narrow 8-5 decision to Darren Toothill of Wilkie. Fellow Toilers competitor Dylan Yamniuk had a similar fate, downing La Ronge’s Jean-Luc Fafard and Prince Albert’s Tayvn Moreau but losing a 13-2

Midget Mavericks gearing up for provincial semifinal

Two-game sweep over South East sends Moose Jaw into second round against Regina Renegades, series begins Tuesday at Bert Hunt The Moose Jaw Mavericks have one series under their belts in the Saskatchewan Hockey Association Midget A female provincial playoffs. They’re hoping the next one goes just as smoothly – and lands them comfortably in the provincial championship series. The second-seeded Mavericks rolled to 4-1 and 7-3 victories over the South East Goldwings in their first-round playoff series late last month, and as a result will now face the third-place Regina Renegades for the right to advance to face either the top-seed East Central Fillies or fourth-place Prairie Storm Thunder for provincial gold. The Mavericks finished the regular season with a 14-2-0 record but took a little time getting things going in their opening quarter-final contest against South East on Feb. 21. Eowyn Stokes scored the lone early goal for the Moose Jaw in the second period of that contest, with things tied 1-1 heading into the final frame, but goals from Brooklyn Nimegeers, Taylor Luciak and Lindsay Daniel in the

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express third would secure the win. Schay Camphaug made 18 saves in the contest. There were no late-game dramatics in the deciding contest of the best-of-three series on Feb. 23. Daniel, Nikita Halyk and Kaelyn Logan all scored in the game’s opening six minutes, Stokes added their fourth goal before the period was out and it was all but academic from there. Taryn Sandbeck made it 5-0 three minutes into the second before Nimegeers and Dusomme added insurance markers in the third. Nimegeers added three assists, Halyk and Logan had a pair of helpers each. Sydnee Christmann had a 24-save showing in the Mavericks goal. The semifinal series against the Renegades begins on Tuesday, Mar. 3, with the Mavericks the prohibitive favourites against their big-city opponents, who put together an 8-6-2 record in the regular season. That included a 5-2 Mavericks win on Nov. 13 and 8-2 Moose Jaw win on Nov. 30.

From the Olympics to the Scotties, curling ref has seen it all Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Working as a physical education teacher and liking the rules of sports are two things that have contributed to Dianne Barker’s continued interest as a curling referee over the past 34 years. “I love working with the athletes, I really do, whether they’re the juniors or high-performance athletes … ,” said Barker, a native of Kamloops, British Columbia, who was the chief umpire for the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Moose Jaw. “I wanted to give back to curling. Curling has been good to me.” Barker began her career as an official in 1986, which was the same year that TSN curling commentator Vic Rauter began calling games. Since then, Barker has umpired at the Olympics in Vancouver, Sochi, Russia, and Pyeongchang, South Korea, while she has refereed at several world championships; she will umpire her third world championship tournament in Canada in Prince George, B.C., from March 14 to 22. As the Scotties’ chief umpire, Barker had a team under her that was responsible for the matches, including timers and on-ice officials. Her responsibility was to ensure they were prepared and to ensure everything ran smoothly. Most of the umpires were from Saskatchewan, while one was from Whitehorse, Yukon. Everyone was a volunteer, which meant they took time off work to officiate. While there can be some expenses volunteers incur, Barker noted Curling Canada attempts to mitigate those costs by looking after hotels and transportation costs. There are great people in the curling umpire program across Canada, she continued. Whenever she is invited to act as chief umpire, she has found many referees have

Barker has officiated curling since 1986 and has umpired three Olympics and several world championship tournaments. Photo by Jason G. Antonio been well trained and were a pleasure to work with. “I just enjoy what I do or I wouldn’t keep doing it,” she laughed. Preparation is the best way to avoid major stress, Barker said. She attempts to prepare for tournaments ahead of time and to look at all the possible situations that might arise. With the amount of experience she has, she noted with a laugh that she has come through most of the situations she has faced. “I’m the last line of defence,” she continued. “If something happens out there and the athletes and coaches ar-

en’t happy with it, then it falls on my shoulders to solve that issue, and hopefully, we do it to everybody’s satisfaction.” Barker didn’t mind being a mediator, pointing out she is a mother. What makes the curling role interesting is there is something new to mediate every day. For example, during this Scotties, a measurement found the difference in the position of rocks was fractional. She therefore ruled that a different player from each team had to throw again. While her on-ice umpire probably knew that, she thought he simply wanted her opinion as a backup. “And that’s how the rulebook evolves. Things come up that aren’t in there and then you have to come up with the process,” she said. Some of Barker’s most endearing memories come from the Olympics and judgments given there. Sponsorship and the use of technology are always issues, so in Vancouver, she had to rule on whether advertising was allowed on belt buckles. In Sochi, athletes were banned from wearing Apple watches since they could be used to cheat. Barker is unsure if she will officiate at the 2022 Beijing Olympics since Chinese officials must send her an invitation first. “I’ve had the opportunity to be at three. If they didn’t ask me this time, I’d be OK … ,” she added. “There are a lot of great umpires in Canada who would enjoy the opportunity to, and when you’ve had three chances, it’s pretty special. If I got a fourth, that would be wonderful.”

FINAL STONE Collecting and trading pins a well-established tradition at Scotties Some people collect stamps and some collect hockey cards, but if you’re a curling fan, you know that the tradition is to collect — and trade — pins from the events you attend. Reginans Edd Wisniewski and Rob Dewhirst brought their collection to this year’s Scotties Tournament of Hearts, displaying their assortment of pins in the hallway outside the HeartStop Lounge (the Ford Curling Centre). Dewhirst began collecting in 1983, after attending the men’s world championship in Regina; Wisniewski nabbed his first collector’s item after attending the 1991 men’s Brier in Hamilton, Ont. Both have volunteered at curling tournaments over the years — including in Moose Jaw — while they also curled, so their collections have grown through attending those

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express events and meeting other collectors. Being able to meet people is one highlight of trading pins, said Dewhirst. He explained that this activity began at the club level when teams exchanged their club pins before they competed against each other. This contributed to the social aspect of the game and the development of friendships. “That’s what kind of got me into it. You have that pin and you remember how you got it and who it came from,” he added. At events such as the Scotties, the fans and players are from across Canada, which makes it easier to acquire different pins, said Wisniewski. His main interest is to collect pins from the Scotties and Brier tournaments; he has no specific favourite in his collection and simply likes Reginans Edd Wisniewski and Rob Dewhirst display the pins in their collection that they brought with them to trade during the 2020 Scotties Tournament of them all.

Rosie’s on River Street saw lots of green & white Scotties spirit as House Sask Larissa Kurz

It was a lucky draw for Rosie’s on River Street, to be chosen as House Saskatchewan for the downtown businesses’ campaign at this year’s Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Being located right next door to Mosaic Place was certainly to their advantage, and the place saw more than their fair share of curling fans — and plenty of that memorable Saskatchewan spirit. “Being able to just participate in this, let alone get lucky enough to draw House Sask, is awesome,” said Zach Schutte, part-owner of the local restaurant. “Anything that’s going on, especially with a big event like this, we love to have our hand in it and play a part in it.” Schutte has seen plenty of Rider jerseys filling Rosie’s to the brim during Scotties week, alongside some curious souls looking to rub elbows with Saskatchewan fans and try out the local menu — like the Newfound-

land and Labrador team. “Green is the colour, right,” joked Schutte. “We’ve seen a lot of Saskatchewan fans, a lot of people from across Canada. . . Just because we’re House Sask doesn’t mean we turn away other people.” In true spirit, Rosie’s windows were decorated in the Scotties logo, green and white streamers, and Saskatchewan jerseys hanging from the ceiling — like a jacket blazoned with Penny Barker’s name, a notable Moose Jaw curler. The Scotties was, understandably, a nice boom for the business community. Schutte definitely saw an increase in traffic as well as some great notoriety. “With our name getting out there, a lot of people were making it a priority to come by when stopping in Moose Jaw, which is awesome to see,” said Schutte. Unfortunately, Robyn Silvernagle and her team did not make it to the playoffs this year.

KESSLERING Max Edward Kesslering passed away on Thursday, February 20th, 2020 at the age of 91 years with his devoted family by his side. Max was born on November 17th, 1928 on the family farm near Horizon, Saskatchewan. He was the youngest of six children born to Michael and Elizabeth Kesslering. He was predeceased by his parents, as well as his brothers: Peter Kesslering, Frank Kesslering and Tony Kesslering; sisters, Magdalinea Schneider and Anna Klein; brothers-in-law, Max Schneider and Lloyd Klein; and sisters-in-law, Rosina Kesslering and Anne Kesslering. Max is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Marg; children: Sharon (Keith) Adam, Brian (Debbie) Kesslering, Darryl (Wivi) Kesslering, and Lynn Kesslering; 11 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Mary Kesslering; as well as many nieces and nephews. Max and Marg raised their 4 children on their farm near Horizon from 1963 to 1994 when they moved to Moose Jaw, SK. Max’s love of farming extended long after he moved to Moose Jaw and he always continued to check up on the farming operations from the comforts of his home in Moose Jaw. He was actively involved in his community, always ready to lend a helping hand, and never turned down a good game of crib. He was very much loved and respected dearly by his family and friends. The Funeral Mass was celebrated on Friday, February 28th, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 1064 3rd Ave NW, Moose Jaw, SK. Father George Thattuparampil was the presiding celebrant and interment has taken place at Rosedale Cemetery. A Prayer Service was held on Thursday, February 27th, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations in Max’s name may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan, Unit 26 - 1738 Quebec Ave, Saskatoon, SK S7K 1V9 or to a charity of one’s choice. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Gary McDowell, Director 306-693-4550 www.

January home sales in Moose Jaw better than 2019, data shows By Moose Jaw Express staff

Home sales in January in Moose Jaw and region saw better growth than during the same time last year, according to data from the Saskatchewan Realtors Association. The region saw an increase in home sales of 44 per cent last month, jumping to 36 homes sold compared to 25 in 2019. In Moose Jaw itself, sales were up 13.6 per cent, or an increase to 25 from 22. This led to a sales dollar volume increase of 8.4 per cent in the city — to $5.3 million from $4.8 million — and an increase of 25 per cent in the region, to $6.6 million from $4.9 million. Listings were also up in both the city and the region, the association’s data showed. In Moose Jaw listings increased to 77 in January compared to 54 last year, or a jump of 42.6 per cent. Meanwhile, listings in the region jumped to 107 from 79, or an increase of 35.4 per cent.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith Ear and Chin Hair As I was praying about my column today and listening in on what was on God’s heart for each of you, I was impressed to convey His love and the value He has for each of you dear readers. My thoughts started with the uniqueness of each of our fingerprints. Imagine that over 7.8 billion people in the world today all have an individual set of fingerprints. That is almost unfathomable. Then as I contemplated the enormity of that, I got to thinking about the uniqueness of our gait. Did you know people can be recognized by their stride? I remember one teacher I had in high school who seemed to have springs in his legs. When he walked, he almost bounced. I’m sure you can think of someone who has a unique stride. Then, this got me to thinking about our voices. Once again, one doesn’t have to necessarily see the person to recognize who they are. I’m old enough to remember rotary dial phones and party lines. There was no “maestro” or caller ID when I was growing up. All we had to go on was voice recognition to identify the caller and for the most point, one knew who was on the other line when their first words were spoken. I sounded a lot like my mom, though, so I think callers to our house may have been somewhat challenged to know who answered our phone. What about the number of hairs on our head? I’m not sure if anyone has the same amount of hair as I do but it is constantly changing each time I brush my long locks. It would be impossible if I had to keep track of how many hairs I had at any given time yet God knows how many hairs each of us have. “Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:7) Would that just be our locks of hair that are numbered? Or what about our facial hair, our eyebrows and eyelashes? ...or even ear hair? I’ve noticed a sign of “maturity” is random coarse hairs growing out of my chin or Hubby’s ears. Embarrassingly, the first time I realized I had those random coarse hairs growing on my face was when my hairstylist offered to pull one lone ranger off of the lower part of my cheek. I was horrified to see the length of it; and to not have noticed it was even worse. However, I did learn that there are ways to control those random arrivals and have since learned to wield tweezers with strategic aim. Side note: ladies, there are several ways to eliminate random facial hair such as waxing, sugaring, plucking or shaving. The good news is we don’t have to be stuck with those wild and crazy things. I did get a bit off course there with the facial hairs, and I could even go down a longer bunny trail when I think of the forests that some men grow in their ears. The point I’m hopefully making is that each of us is created very uniquely and individually. Our Creator formed us with love and affection. As an artisan, He made sure every mark, print and hair were thoughtfully were lovingly planned for: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...” It would do you 60 to Athabasca Street139 East good read all of Psalm where these verses are found. 306-692-0533 Minister: Rev.
