Salvation Army gearing up for annual kettle campaign

Plenty of volunteers needed for Christmas fundraising drive Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

It’s almost as much a sign of the season as Santa Claus and Christmas trees – the Salvation Army donation stations set up at stores throughout the city, seeking support for the annual Kettle Campaign and their ongoing work to make sure every family can celebrate the holidays. This year’s campaign kicks off on Nov. 26 in front of Superstore and runs until Dec. 24, as part of their ongoing mission to supply Christmas hampers to families in need. “Our main goal is to do everything we can to make sure everyone in Moose Jaw has a Christmas,� said Salvation Army Major Dan Broome. “There are families who don’t have a lot and are very appreciative that we can help them. It’s something we’re really happy to be able to do.� The kettles are located in prominent retail outlets throughout the city and are staffed by a small army of volunteers – an army that Maj. Broome is looking to build as you read this. “We need a lot of people,� he said. “We have volunteers working three hour shifts at each of the locations, so that works out to a lot of hours and a lot of volunteers.� Broome estimated that over 100 would be needed to fully cover the long line of shifts. The support has traditionally been there,

though, augmented by service club members lending a hand to fill any openings. The drive hopes to bring more volunteers in to fill the void. “The more people we have the easier it is to cover all the shifts,� he said. “I’ve always found it kind of fun, having a chance to hang out and meet people, and I think a lot of our volunteers feel the same.� Those kettles might look relatively small in size, but their impact is incredible: The Salvation Army raised $56,000 last year and is looking to clear the $60K mark this year. “It’s amazing how much support we receive in a town the size of Moose Jaw,� Broome said, adding that it comes as little surprise in reality, given how successful so many charities are in the community. “I think part of it, too, is that people know the money they donate (to the kettle campaign) is going to go to the right place,� he said. “And if we have anything left over at the end of the campaign, it goes to support our other programs that help families in Moose Jaw, so it all goes back to the community.� For more information on the Kettle Campaign or to volunteer, contact the Salvation Army at 306-694-0045.

Hank Williams Sr. tribute artist carries on “Father of Country Music” tradition

Yours Truly is no music critic, having a tin ear, unable to distinguish between the keys on the musical scale. But I know what I like and the Jason Petty tribute show for the great country singer Hank Williams Sr. was one of the best shows by Ron Walter I’ve ever seen at the Cultural Centre. Petty has been performing the Hank Williams songs and narration for 22 years since the Grand Ole Opry picked him to continue the Hank Williams tradition. His knowledge of Williams came from close association with family and friends of the prolific singer/ songwriter who gave us over 400 songs in his brief career. While Williams influenced other great country singers and turned what was called hillbilly folk music into the country music genre, a black man taught the eight-year-old to play the guitar, how to perform and write songs. He told Williams to sing to his audience, engage them, not to sing at them. And he urged Williams

to write songs about what he knew because an audience can spot a fake song from miles away. A thirteen-year-old Williams started playing in Alabama honky-tonks with his mother as chauffeur and body guard. The honky-tonks were rough places. Wire fences sometimes protected the bands from flying bottles during fist fights. The talented Williams took to drinking too much, appearing late or not at all, some nights. Once he met the love of his life, she weaned him from the bottle and sought a record contract in Nashville. Three times she pounded on doors of all the recording companies. Nobody would touch him, because of his reputation as a drunk. Finally, producer Fred Rose gave him an audition. Not believing Williams wrote the cool songs he had, Rose gave him an idea about a man walking on the street and encountering his lost love. Fifteen minutes later Williams had written the hit song – I Can’t Help It If I’m Still In Love With You. He was signed on the spot. Williams entertained across North America and Europe with countless hits. He was dubbed the “Father of Country Music,” as he made the hillbilly folk bal-

lad style popular. His wife, a wannabe singer, grew restless. To respond he wrote the hit, Your Cheatin’ Heart. It wasn’t a hit with her. A 1952 back operation that went awry addicted him to the painkiller morphine. The lovesick singer mixed alcohol with morphine going into a downward tailspin His wife left him. In 1953, drugs and alcohol took a toll with a fatal heart attack. When the tribute show was over, Petty mingled with fans for selfies. He recalled how the late Little Jimmie Dickens told him he was the last of that line of singers and that Petty needed to carry on the tradition. A fan asked Petty what he thinks of today’s country music. “I turned my radio off country music in the early 2000s,” he replied. “I respect Taylor Swift and that music; it makes a lot of money. It’s not my music.” Hank Williams Sr. fans can listen to dozens of his early radio shows online. Just search YouTube for Mother’s Best Flour Shows. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Staples collects and donates $3,000 in school supplies Matthew Gourlie


With respect to recent events surrounding the Downtown Facility and Fieldhouse (DFFH) I wish to make the following statement. It was at the request of the senior DFFH employee responsible for Human Resources in the presence of another employee that I received files from DFFH that had been gathered by staff from the desk of a terminated employee. There was no surreptitious action or malevolent intent in doing so. I secured the material in my home office where at any given time there are a number of confidential city reports and materials. City councillors are not provided with office space at City Hall. Neither I, nor anyone else, read those materials whilst in my possession. I turned them over to my lawyer who provided them to an investigator upon request. No breach of confidentiality occurred. The Board of DFFH, which included a senior member of City Administration in an Ex Officio capacity, took reasonable action when apprised of allegations of harassment and inappropriate use of language by DFFH employees based on the information available when the action was taken.

Tony Brennan, Staples general manager, left, Shaunda Ariss from Staples, Dave DePape, superintendent Holy Trinity Catholic School Division, Tony Baldwin, director of education Prairie South School Division and Jim Turner and Chino Lorente from Staples stand behind the $3,000 worth of school supplies donated locally for this school year at Staples.

For the past 14 years, Staples in Moose Jaw has collected and donated school supplies for students in Moose Jaw. This year, $3,000 worth of supplies have been collected by Staples and will be divided between the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division and the Prairie South School Division. “This donation is a reflection of the generosity of the people in the city of Moose Jaw,” said Tony Brennan, Staples general manager. “They opened their hearts to give children the school supplies they need to be sure they get a really good start on their education. Moose Jaw is called the Friendly City and every year this is a great example of that.” Dave DePape, superintendent Holy

Trinity Catholic School Division and Tony Baldwin, director of education Prairie South School Division, were both on hand to accept the donation. The supplies are given to each school division who then forward them on to the schools who then distribute them to the students. “There’s a lot of excitement farming it out to the kids,” said Brennan. There are no big-ticket items. Instead Staples tries to provide some of the universal basics that are on most school’s supply list. “Three thousand dollars buys a lot of pencils and pens. The money goes a long way,” Brennan said.

During the last year and a half the DFFH Board significantly improved opportunities for staff input into decision making. I am proud of the many improvements to customer service and third- party relationships with Curl Moose Jaw, the Moose Jaw Warriors, and the Compass Group that occurred. As well, significant improvements were made to the financial viability of DFFH as evidenced in the public 6 month financial update provided to Council immediately prior to the dissolution of the DFFH Board and imposition of sanctions by Mayor Tolmie and Councillors Luhning and Warren. I deeply appreciate the support and encouragement from numerous Moose Jaw citizens during the past several weeks. I am also so appreciative of the support from my wife and children and regret what they have had to go through. At all times during my tenure on the DFFH Board I acted to the best of my ability in striving to govern the facilities in the best interests of DFFH and our community. I will continue to serve the citizens of Moose Jaw and fulfill the mandate provided me at the last civic election.

I sometimes wonder what kind of a person it took to leave their family and country to go to war? What kind of internal strength did it take, to think that possibly they would die in battle, often alone and at the hand of the enemy? Did they have a penchant for adventure and excitement that pushed them to enlist? In the throes of bravery, were they Joan Ritchie afraid? In the dark of the EDITOR night under enemy gunfire, did they cry and miss home, thinking about their loved ones so far away? I imagine they were often cold and hungry, soaked to the bone and covered in mud, keeping hope burning, deep inside, that they would make it out alive. The internal well they had to draw from surely must have been deep. Was it their faith that kept them going? And although war heroes and veterans never strived for honour in their sacrifice, it is apparent that they embraced their call to war, with no strings attached – a selfless act. It was sheer raw bravery that led them to battle, not knowing the outcome, loss of life or limb. We are so indebted to them for the freedom in which we live. What I found out… *“The National Average Age for soldiers enlisting in WWI was 24.25 years of age. Having fluctuated from 23 in 1914, to 26 in 1916 and fell again to 24 by 1918.” ** “The trench experience involved the terror of mud, slime and disease and the constant threat of shellfire. Heavy artillery and new weapons such as poison gas threatened death from afar; but hand to hand combat with clubs and knives killed many during the grisly business of trench raids. When troops were not fighting, they were locked into trench deadlock, at which point boredom also became a serious issue.” ***” War confers many things on boys who pick up a weapon to fight. They learn the true meaning of fear. They test their own capacity for courage and the limits of human endurance, physical and mental.” **** “Many served out of thought for their families and friends as much as through loyalty to their country. For others, the promise of regular pay and help for their families might have influenced their decision and motivation to serve.” Our War Heroes, Veterans, and Peacekeepers deserve our reverent respect, now and always. May We Never Forget and lose sight of the sacrifices they have made. *https://mq.edu.au/on_campus/museums_and_collections/australian_history_museum/online_exhibitions/oua_anzac_unit/ wwi_age_at_enlistment/ ** https://www.bl.uk/world-war-one/themes/life-as-a-soldier *** https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-29934965 **** https://www.bl.uk/world-war-one/articles/how-did-soldiers-cope-with-war Send your letters to the editor to: letters@mjvexpress.com or 888-241-5291 All columns, letters to the editor and editorials are solely the personal opinions of the writers themselves and not necessarily the opinions of The Moose Jaw Express.

City Councillor seeks to clarify role in recent DFFH scandal Sasha-Gay Lobban

Councillor Crystal Froese has sought to clarify what she says has been misinformation and misrepresentation in the public domain in relation to her role in the now defunct Downtown Facility and Field House (DFFH) board which was dissolved after a scandal ripped through the organization. Froese was among two other councillors, Scott McMann and Brian Swanson who were sanctioned as a result of the scandal following an investigation that revealed they were at fault for not following various board procedures. It was reported that serious concerns among employees were brought to former General Manager, Graham Edge which was reportedly brought to the attention of all three councillors who did not act on the matter. Froese is however dismissing allegations that she did nothing after being made aware of the concerns. In a sit down with the Moose Jaw Express, Froese was adamant that she had the employees’ best interest at the forefront but says it was a ‘complicated issue’. “It is a very complicated issue when you’re dealing with the complaints that we’ve had as a board member at the DFFH. As the report from the City showed, I tried to move the investigation forward and wasn’t able to do that. So, it was a great relief to me when the City Manager stepped in and formalized the whole process. My concern was always for the staff and the well-being of them, as well as the organization as a whole in getting that addressed as soon as possible.” Froese says she takes full responsible for not following proper procedures as a board member. She argues however that she was 100 per cent cooperative with the investigations that subsequently took place. “The sanctions that were placed on us as board members in ratio to the report, I take full responsibility for falling short in following the actual proper procedures and processes. That was completely my error. This is in terms of following the responsibilities as a board member. There is no straight line when you’re in that very complicated situation. As the report stated, I did go to City staff and asked for their recommendations in that. It was just very complex, so I take responsibility for not ensuring that proper procedures were followed,” she said. “But, my whole purpose was to get something done for the issues that were going on there. When the City Manager started to do a full investigation (which I wanted at the board level but couldn’t get it moved forward), I was on his doorstep immediately with whatever I could do to help the process and was corporative with everything that I knew. I provided every detail whole-heartedly without hesitation.” She further clarified what she says were “mixed messages” in media reports. “For myself, it wasn’t an issue of the political idea that people might have. I was trying to do the right thing, specifically for the right people that needed the help and that’s what I did. You can see that in the sanctions. This is where I think media keeps mixing up and lumping board members together…my sanction is only in place until August next year. I don’t sit as Deputy Mayor and I don’t chair, or vice chair any committees. I am in agreement with these sanctions because I don’t think as a city member, I should be on any advisory committee or third-party board as either one of those.” Froese reiterated however that the sanctions have not impacted her role as a councillor. “This doesn’t incapacitate my ability to be a councillor whatsoever [the sanction]. I still sit on all committees that I sat on before and participate in all of those without curbing my access to any

Councillor Crystal Froese material. I’m a fully functioning councillor. I just want to make sure the public understands that. I am the only one who has spoken out publicly about the issue and has participated fully in the process and shared what I can share with media and citizens because I think it’s their right to know.” Asked if she believes her political career has taken a hit as a result of the scandal? Froese replied, “I’ve had really great supportive responses in light of this. Because I’ve spoken up and it is not a mystery as to my participation, I’ve had great support. People who had questions, I’ve answered them to the best of my ability. I’m a pretty open book and I really try to do things for the right reasons. But, it has certainly been an incredible learning curve. However, I don’t want the issue to be lost here that it was about trying to look after the staff and their concerns. That was always at the forefront of my mind.” According to the city report which can be found on the Moose Jaw City website, the sanctions for the three councillors imposed: Councillor Brian Swanson: a. Will not receive direct access to confidential reports. Confidential reports of Executive Committee, Personnel Committee, Budget or any other Committee of City Council will be available for review in the City Clerk’s office for as long as the sanction is in effect. b. Will not hold the position of Deputy Mayor, Chair or Vice-Chair of any Standing Committee. c. Will not be allowed to sit on Third-Party Boards or Advisory Committees associated with the City of Moose Jaw. d. Sanctions are in effect to the end of Council term. Councillor Scott McMann: a. Will not hold the position of Deputy Mayor, Chair or Vice-Chair of any Standing Committees or Advisory Committees. b. Will not be allowed to sit on Third-Party Boards associated with the City of Moose Jaw. c. Sanctions are in effect until December 31, 2019. Councillor Crystal Froese: a. Will not hold the position of Deputy Mayor, Chair or Vice-Chair of any Standing Committees or Advisory Committees. b. Sanctions are in effect until August 31, 2019.

Feeder calf prices decline over last year’s levels By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Cow calf operators selling calves in the fall-run this year aren’t taking home as much money as last year. Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture market trends data shows average calf prices across the province have declined. The average price for 500-pound to 600-pound steers of $2.17 for the week ended Oct. 26 is down six per cent from last year at this time. Prices for 700-800-pound steers of

$2.07 a pound have declined only 2.4 per cent. Assiniboia Livestock Auction prices show a decline as well, with 500-600-pound steers on Oct. 22 selling between $2.16 and $2.22 a

pound – a decline of between 23 cents and 39 cents from sales on Oct. 31 last year. Steers from 700 to 800 pounds sold between $1.90 and $2.08 — a drop of between 23 cents and 18 cents. The price difference for heifer calves is just as pronounced. Heifers between 500 and 600 pounds just sold between $1.83 and $1.89 for a reduction of between 26 cents and 40 cents. Heifers between 700 and 800, pounds sold from $1.74 to $1.82, a reduction of 17 to 25 cents.

Governor General special visit at 15 Wing Snowbirds’s year-end show Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When Julie Payette made her first appearance in a classroom at CFB Moose Jaw back in the early 1990s, she had a bit of a different pedigree compared to other student pilots learning to fly the wide-variety of aircraft serviced by the local military airbase, now known as 15 Wing Moose Jaw. When Payette returned to 15 Wing for the Canadian Snowbirds’ 2018 year-end show, things were much different. As The Governor General of Canada and former Canadian Space Agency astronaut, Payette was back in Saskatchewan for the first time since being appointed Canada’s vice-regal by Queen Elizabeth on Oct. 2, 2017. Wearing a flight suit similar to that which she would have worn back in her training days – sporting an oft-seen NFTC Harvard II patch on her right shoulder and much-less-common Canadian Space Agency patch on her left – Payette greeted onlookers and well-wishers of many stripes, some of which were familiar faces from her days first learning to fly on the Harvard and Tutor aircraft. “I spent two years here training as a pilot and even though most of the people who trained with me in the 90s aren’t here, it’s

Governor General Julie Payette poses for a photo with well-wishers during the Snowbirds year-end show. still home,” Payette said during a media gathering shortly after the Snowbirds capped their campaign with another impressive display. “I lived on base and we all lived on base so there are a lot of memories,” she added with a laugh. “When you do your first solo they have a ritual they do to welcome you back, and whenever we went on trips... it’s all skills and training, but at the same time, it’s things you will remember the rest of your life. So when I say I’m coming home, I mean it.” Payette’s unique position as a student pilot

came out of the fact that she had already been selected by the CSA in 1992 as one of four astronauts to train for upcoming space shuttle flights – flights that turned out to be STS-96 on Discovery in 1999 and STS-127 on Endeavour in 2009. As a result, she had to learn to fly aircraft, reported to CFB Moose Jaw for training, and has since logged more than 1,300 hours flight time. Included in those hours are many flown in a CT-114 Tutor jet – and yes, some of those in a Tutor painted in Snowbirds livery. Even for someone who’s worked with the

precision involved in NASA spaceflights, what those pilots accomplish on a day-today basis is often astonishing. “What’s the most difficult is to get really, really close,” Payette said. “Formation flying is a technique and it’s taught here in absolute precision, but what the Snowbirds do is get really, really close in ways that look to us that look like they’re going to crash. But it’s the dexterity and the skills of the pilots, plus how well they work as a team... I’ve had the pleasure to fly every single position in the past, and it’s absolutely amazing.” Payette’s visit to 15 Wing was only part of a much larger excursion as Governor General: she visited the Legislature and RCMP Depot the day before and also took part in a ceremony to bestow regal and national honours on exceptional citizens the following afternoon before taking in a Humboldt Broncos hockey game. “It’s a privilege,” Payette said of her Governor General duties. “And I’m the same person I’ve always been, I’m a proud Canadian; I’m a team player and now I have the extraordinary privilege to criss-cross the country and to meet so many people and showcase what they do and promote who we are and our values.”

Grocery chain strategy offers investors capital gain opportunity Five years ago, Sobeys announced acquisition of Canada Safeway stores, an event that gave the eastern-based grocery chain a strong market position in the West. The Canada Safeway acquisition wasn’t Sobeys’ finest moment. In the rush to grow profits, Sobeys dumped long standing quality Safeway house brands. The replacements with Sobeys house brands didn’t always meet with approval from customers used to Safeway brands. The long and short of the story is Sobeys parent, Empire Co. wrote off almost $3 billion on the acquisition in two years. The Safeway deal has been a drag on Empire earnings until recently. Last year, same store sales, a benchmark of retail growth, turned positive and Sobeys undertook Project Sunrise to return to strong profitability. The project’s first priority is to reduce costs. Addressing what the company called a “byzantine complex organizational structure” will assist in that goal. The $24 billion revenue company with 110 years operation under its belt has several other irons in the fire to stoke growth and profits. The Ontario-based discount banner called Freshco is expanding west with up to five under-performing Safeway stores planned for conversion to Freshco. A U.K. based online grocery operation, Ocado has been sourced to develop Sobeys’ online presence. Online grocery business is growing at 30 per cent a year. No grocery chain can come close to that rate or ignore online sales. Earlier this year, the company expanded Ontario presence with acquisition of

Farm Boy for $800 million. This enhances Sobeys’ Ontario market share. Farm Boy has 26 Ontario stores, 13 around Ottawa, offering customers a different approach to groceries. The rapidly growing Farm Boy stores emphasize fresh locally-sourced food. Thirty per cent of products are in-house brands. Sobeys has announced it will not change the house brands – evidence that meddling with Safeway brands taught them a lesson. The Farm Boy stores have room for expansion in Ontario, even into the West. Popular Farm Boy house brands could make it onto shelves nation-wide. Another astute strategy was acquisition of Asian-focused grocer Kim Phatt, giving the chain an opportunity to capture ethnic market share across Canada. At a recent $23.40 Empire non-voting shares yield 1.8 per cent to investors. Three analysts following the company’s fortunes are divided on the outlook with one strong buy and two holds. Their oneyear share price targets range from $27 to $32 – between 25 per cent and 36 per cent potential gain. Allowing that analyst estimates are often way out in left field, Empire is a stock worth watching. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security. Bizworld does not recommend investments. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Spooky fun at SCRAPS annual fundraiser Matthew Gourlie

A Scaredy Cat Halloween drew a packed house Monday night. There was a good reason. The annual Halloween fundraiser hosted by the Stray Cat Rescue and Protection Society (SCRAPS) is popular: with music, magic, pumpkins, prizes costumes and food; it had everything young ghosts and ghouls could want. “It’s a great event, we raise awareness for SCRAPS and we raise awareness for animal welfare,� said Anne Marciszyn, a vol-

unteer board member with SCRAPS. “It gives people another place to come if they don’t want to go trick-or-treating outside.� It’s the event’s seventh year and was fittingly held on National Cat Day, October 29. The night was held at Pizza Hut and co-sponsored by Penna’s Welding. It featured music by Rodney Laporte and Magic by Chris - Chris Edwards performed illusions for the kids in attendance. Each of the kids received a “goblin goodie bag� and there were also pumpkins decorated by Sue Franklyn for sale. The proceeds from the event went to support SCRAPS’ Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program. “When you adopt a cat, you save a life, but when you support TNR you save hundreds and thousands of lives. It prevents populations of homeless cats from growing and we want to see that,� Marciszyn said. “When we do our program, we spay, neuter and vaccinate all of our animals. We take in the tame ones and the kittens and we put them through our foster program and eventually find them homes. The adults who are wild and aren’t used to being with people, we release them back into the community and then we support them. We set up feeding stations where

they come for food all of the time. We provide health care for them down the road if they come back into our system.� The colonies of wild strays are fed at different locations by volunteer feeders. “Last year, 153 cats went through the program and this year they’re looking at being around 100,� Marciszyn said. “We’re finding that’s probably because the program is becoming effective. We’re not seeing as many cats or as many kittens. “We’re reaching out into the communities outlying Moose Jaw and trying to support them.� One of those communities is Caron which

is having their own fundraiser later in the month. The Caring for the Community Cats of Caron will be holding a steak night fundraiser at the Crushed Can from 5-9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16. The fundraiser will have a draw for a Manitoba ice fishing getaway and other prizes. “They have a huge population of cats and kittens,� Marciszyn said. “They’re going to be leaders of small-town Saskatchewan, because a lot of small communities have a hard time getting a handle on the cat population. They’re doing an amazing job.�

New YMCA board struck after contentious AGM Matthew Gourlie

The sound of gunfire rang out at the South Saskatchewan Wildlife Association shooting range on Thursday night. There were plenty of figurative shots being fired, as well, as the Moose Jaw Family YMCA held their annual general meeting at the Sportsman Centre. With the planned closure of the YMCA’s Fairford Street location at the forefront of everyone’s mind, the meeting drew an unprecedented crowd and a large number of people seeking election to the board. The existing board wasn’t able to fill all 12 directors’ seats for the previous year, yet this year 18 people stood for election for eight available seats. Among them were eight people representing a coalition calling itself Save Fairford. “I think you can tell that we put a whole lot of time, energy and passion into this. We know the numbers of the facility, I think we made that clear,” said Errol Fonger, one of the representatives from Save Fairford. “We want to build the YMCA. We want to make it a hub downtown. We think there’s potential to expand, things that we can do that will bring in revenue and make it a better place for the whole community.” Ultimately, six members from Save Fairford were elected to the 12-person board which means the future of the Crescent Park location is once again in question. “The biggest hope we have is that the passion people have will definitely add to the mix of people we already have on the board,” said YMCA board president Christine Boyczuk. “I’m sure we can learn to work together in the best interest of the YMCA and the best interest of the community.” Boyczuk, past president Tony Dreger and directors Joan McMaster and Christine Turcotte each have a term left on the board. Heather Eby and Dr. Jeffrey Reihl sought re-election. Reihl and four members of the Save Fairford group: Fonger, Jeremy Brehm, Taylor Carlson and Kristen Walbaum, received the most votes and were therefore appointed to two-year terms. Greg Burton, Perry Koot and Cheryl Whitehead were also elected to one-year terms. The YMCA held a special meeting of its membership this past June to discuss their plans for the closure of the Fairford Street location. Out of that meeting, a six-person task force was struck. They brought their recommendations to the board at the end of September, but that step proved to be divisive, as well. “I think it did make things worse,” said YMCA CEO Jeff Fox of the task force. “Three people wanted to continue with it and three people on the task force said, ‘we’re good’ and at the end of the day

Matthew Gourlie photograph it was the board’s decision to say we’re good.” Fonger, Brehm and Whitehead were all members of the task force. Fox noted that even if the Fairford location closes as planned there is a lot of work left to do before that takes place. “There are rumours. I don’t know who is spreading them, that the Y at Fairford is going to be closing next month. That’s not going to happen. It’s going to take some time,” said Fox who estimated that it would be 12-18 months before the Fairford location closed, though the closure of the facility was taken into account in this past year’s financial accounting. “Even the whole expansion of the (Athabasca) location is very preliminary. There’s a lot of stuff that we have to figure out before it happens.” While previous AGMs usually draw about 20 people, a total of 128 members voted after more than two hours of discussion and speeches. Nancy Farries, vice president of the YMCA’s Regional Development Centre, Canada West was on hand, as was a lawyer who insured that parliamentary procedure was being followed. The Virtus Group, who act as independent auditors for the Moose Jaw YMCA, oversaw the voting. During his campaign speech, Brehm said “I feel like you deserve the truth more than you deserve my resume” and outlined some of the points that he felt had been distorted or withheld by Fox and the previous board as the sound of gunfire rang out throughout the meeting. One of the biggest bones of contention was that there wasn’t a hard number of what it would cost to renovate the Fairford Street location. While Fox said he believes it to be north of $2 million, many in the Save Fairford group said they were told a range of numbers anywhere from $1-3 million. “We have engineering firms that are actually ready to take a real look at it quite

cheap, because they understand that this is a charity, and find out what the cost needs are,” Fonger said. Current board members emphasized how difficult the decision to close the Fairford location and consolidate services at the Athabasca location -- and possibly in partnership with other facilities -- but they felt that decision reflected their financial reality. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a million, two million, three million or 500,000, we don’t have the money. We don’t have $500,000,” said Fox who quickly added that if the board were able and amenable to getting an engineering assessment done that was fine with him. “It would totally be up to the board. I wouldn’t be opposed to that. I’m not going to stick my head in the sand. I work for the board. If the board says that we need real hard, concrete numbers for this building, then we go down that road.” While those in the Save Fairford camp are hoping to get that building assessment completed, they are also looking at high-level corporate funding to try to offset whatever the costs will be to keep the Fairford location solvent. They also want to talk to the City of Moose Jaw and may investigate their community grants program. “There have actually been businesses that have already come to us and said, ‘hey we like your passion and enthusiasm and we’ve never been approached before.’ Let’s get some of that rolling,” Fonger said. “Then we want to really work on building a relationship with the City to make compelling arguments about what the YMCA does -- build that relationship and build that partnership.” During the meeting there was some disputing about how the line items were distributed between the two locations. The Save Fairford group, most of whom had a business or accounting background, maintained that $268,954 of general ex-


penses were miss allocated to the Fairford location only. “The board were making decisions previously on numbers that weren’t full,” Fonger said. “There were some things that hadn’t been checked and large decisions were made. It’s not that they weren’t thinking about the best interests in the YMCA as a whole, but there were failures in the argument at the end of the day.” After the meeting, the new board members had struck a conciliatory tone. “They’ve been welcoming,” Fonger said. “I see 11 other people that I can work with and we’re going to make the YMCA exciting.” Boyczuk said she hoped they could all look at the books as a starting point. “First we have to insure that all of the information is very clear to all of the board members,” Boyczuk said. “If there are still questions that they have or information that they want to see, they certainly have access to that information as a board member. I’m looking forward to, personally, seeing what the future will look like. You can see from the passion that people displayed, they want to help.” Well there may be even more questions after the meeting than there were before, the night ended with an air of optimism as the new board held a brief closed-door meeting and prepared for a year of big decisions and hard work. “We wouldn’t have done this if we didn’t have a plan,” Fonger said of the push to save the Fairford location. “This was probably the more stressful part. It’s fun when you can actually build and start to see something come together constructively that will really affect the members. That’s the exciting part. Not that it won’t be stressful or tiring, but when you can really start to see results actually hitting people, that’s what is going to be exciting. “I don’t want people who have kids in day care or work in day care at Athabasca to get the wrong impression. We have to do what’s best for the whole YMCA and all of its operations, but keep its flagship operation going, keeping Fairford going.”

According to the AccuWeather forecast for the 2018-2019 winter season, bitterly cold air that is typically expected on the prairies will be seen mostly on the eastern part of the prairie region. What we can expect on the western Prairies is a milder winter compared to normal. “Chinook winds will be quite common across southern Alberta this winter as a westerly flow of air dominates. Chinook winds are usually very strong and can bring sharp rises in temperature downwind of the Rockies,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said. Across the region, drier than normal conditions are also expected with pockets of sever drought impacting areas from Edmonton to Winnipeg. Although this summer and fall have seen parts of the prairies coping with drought, some have had to deal with the wet and snowy weather late this fall leaving some crops unharvested. A very unpredictable outcome. For ski enthusiasts, it may not be the best year for skiing in western Canada. The dry pattern spells a shortened ski season.

The anticipated development of El Niño will have a strong influence on the weather pattern across western Canada, including the path that storms take when tracking from the Pacific Ocean into North America. “The primary storm-track off the Pacific will be directed into northwestern British Columbia and the Yukon Territory with above-normal snowfall,” Anderson said. This will leave the rest of British Columbia milder and drier than normal throughout most of the winter, including in Vancouver and the city’s suburbs. This winter pattern will have implications on the region’s ski resorts, especially those in the Canadian Rockies. “A majority of the snowfall in the western mountains and ski areas will come early in the season before drier weather takes hold,” Anderson said. Although this translates to a healthy start to the winter ski season, the lack of storms later on in the season may cause ski resorts to close earlier than they have in recent years.

Candy, Candy Everywhere by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

This year we were prepared for Halloween. Decorations were pulled out early and there was no last-minute scrambling for costumes. And, of course, there was the candy. The candy. The candy. The candy. I remember years ago, if you did not purchase your candy from the grocery store within 2 to 3 days of the big day, you were out of luck. All the candy was gone. Well, times sure have changed. The day of Halloween, my grocery store was still teem-

ing with candy. It started just before the end of September with just a few flats of candy, in the middle of an aisle, and grew like a cancer, to become even larger than the organic and produce departments combined. Wall to wall diabetes. Why have we let this happen? I’m not sure it’s about how we let this happen, as much as how we let others do this to us. Research shows that sugar is highly addictive, affecting us neurobiologically, similar to the effect addictive drugs, like cocaine, has on our brains. With sugar being a leading cause of obesity and being associated with the major diseases that cause high morbidity and early death, we should be scratching our heads as to why we allow it to be promoted the way it is. Sugar addiction follows the similar neural pathways as drugs and alcohol addiction. The latter are controlled

substances. We have separate stores for alcohol and cannabis products. We have control (somewhat) over opiates and other prescription drugs. We also control how one buys cigarettes and where someone can gamble. On paper, sugar addictive can have severe consequences, just as other controlled substances can have. Unfortunately, you do not need ID to purchase it, it doesn’t have a separate shop and it isn’t hidden behind a curtain at the corner store. Instead, candy is flaunted and within reach at every grocery and convenience store. There’re literally tonnes of it and it’s given out freely all too often. Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter. Wall to wall candy, chocolate Santa’s, hearts and bunnies. If Remembrance Day wasn’t so close to Halloween, and if it weren’t in such bad taste, we may have already seen chocolate poppies. Sugar? Just say no.

Author to shed light on postpartum depression Sasha-Gay Lobban

Author and speaker Carla O’Reilly will be putting a spotlight on postpartum depression in a bid to raise awareness at a Maternal Mental Health forum to be held on Tuesday, November 27th at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery Theatre. The event which is being sponsored by the Moose Jaw Mother First Implementation Committee, as well as CIF Grants will be held at 6:00pm-8:00pm. It is free of cost for the community to attend and open to everyone. The event will provide information on postpartum depression, as well as Mental Wellness tools for those who attend. O’Reilly, who has been raising awareness about postpartum depression for the past 10 years, says she will focus on tools that helped her to overcome postpartum depression. “The groups invited me to speak and share my healing story for post partum psychosis. My speech is called, “T.U.R.N O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H” which is an acronym for the 15 tools that trans-

Carla O’Reilly formed my life.” She spoke about her own struggle with postpartum depression which she says she was able to heal from, through a support group of women who suffered from it as well. “I suffered from post partum psychosis after the birth of my son 14 years ago. I suffered for four years and I finally

found support with a group in Regina. It was there that my healing journey really began. I also met my best friend there and I found that there were other women who were suffering. We came together and decided that we were going to write a book, called “Smiling Mask: The Truths of Postpartum Depression and Parenthood”. This November is our 10th anniversary of releasing our book. We really wanted to raise awareness on postpartum depression and that was our mission. We’ve been speaking about it for the past 10 years across Canada, at medical conferences especially.” At the event, O’Reilly will share the tools she said helped her on her journey. “Now, I’ve created a healing tool kit that anyone who suffers any type of depression can use these simple tools to help them get better.

Some of the tools I talk about are: positive thinking—I battled obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and anyone with this disorder can really battle with their thoughts. So, I needed to learn how to think my way out of them. The biggest thing I talk about is choosing your thoughts and changing them to positive and using gratitude as a way to think positively and start that thought pattern to get yourself out of the dumps,” she said. “I also talk about helping others, which has made my healing shine and the importance of opening up with others by talking about what you’re going through. I also discuss setting goals and self-forgiveness.” O’Reilly says she wants others to know there is hope to triumph over any type of mental illness. “I want people to know that there is hope; you can get through a mental illness. Don’t give up but ask for help and talk about what you’re going through. Look for inspirational people to connect with because there are others who have struggled with it.” O’Reilly is working on a second publication and documentary for the upcoming year. For more information, you can go to www.thesmilingmask.com There is a Postpartum Depression Support Group in Moose Jaw that meets on Fridays from 9:30am-11:30am at the Strong Start Family Center at 679 Hall St. For more information on this group, you can contact susan.rader@saskhealthauthority.ca.

CarnEVIL raises funds for South Central ECIP Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Masonic Temple was a place of unspeakable horror and unmitigated terror on the night of Oct. 27th and the South Central Early Childhood Intervention Program wouldn’t have had it any other way. The local family support organization transformed the local hall into a ‘CarnEVIL’ for their seventh Spooktacular, featuring a host of strange and scary sights, scenes and activities – with a decidedly un-kid friendly theme. “We wanted to have a fun fundraiser for adults and this has been a pretty popular event for us,” said Nancy Rosnes, South Central ECIP executive director. “We had a pretty good turnout this year, around 100 people came out; everyone had a re-

ally good time and that’s what we were hoping to see.” While the fundraising total hasn’t been completed as of press time, Rosnes expected it would be successful, with funds going towards supporting the variety of programs ECIP holds in Moose Jaw on an annual basis. “The proceeds go towards the programming we do with our families, purchasing some of the resources and supplies we use during our home visits,” she said. “It’ll also go towards helping put on events for our families during the year, so the support is definitely very much appreciated.” Here’s a look at some of the sights from that evening:

No fatalities in Zombie vs. Humain Run

Annual ACF Moose Jaw event draws over 80 participants for some horror-themed fun Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The first indication of something not right in Connor Park on the afternoon of Sunday, Oct. 25 was the immediately noticeable and ubiquitous appearance of Umbrella Corporation soldiers manning the grounds. Why would the corporate security forces from the video game series ‘Resident Evil’ be on hand unless something was terribly wrong? As it turns out, a few seconds of perusing the surroundings answered the question. Zombies. All types. Everywhere. Milling about. Just waiting for their opportunity. That opportunity, as it turns out, was to try and scare the be-jeepers out of ‘civilian’ runners taking part in the Assemblee Communautaire Fransaskoise (ACF) Moose Jaw Zombie vs. Humain Run, which had runners work their way Collette and Patrick Curtis were just out for a walk in Connor Park and, well... through a two- or four-kilometre course while trying to avoid the zombie-volun- fering plenty of scares. with a laugh while surveying the crowd teers stationed all along the course. “They have a really good time with it,� of human and undead participants as It’s just as fun as it all sounds, while of- said event organizer Chantal Amstad numbers slowly filled out prior to the race. “All humans have a belt with flags on it and they have to come back with at least one flag, which means they survived the infestation. And for the zombies, the goal is to scare people, take some flags away and just do enough to make people scared enough to run some more.� A total of 44 runners took part, contending with around 40 zombies and receiving ‘protection’ from a dozen Umbrella soldiers.

We’re hoping to see more and more people every year and see it grow.�

The traditional method of creating zombies was impractical for the run, so this was the alternative.

High Street ‘re-opens’ with ribbon cutting celebration Businesses hoping to see return to form after six month of hardship brought on by destroyed street. Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

For 13 months, High Street West in Moose Jaw was a nearly impassable mess. At first, it was understandable – for seven months, contractors were hard at work replacing cast iron water mains as part of the city's ongoing plan to replace the aging and rotting underground infrastructure. Then winter came and for five long months High Street was a partially paved, mostly broken-pavement-and-gravel disaster. Don McKenzie of Water Vision Hot Tubs at 710 High Street West felt the situation was so bad it didn't even belong in the country. “This street was a warzone,” he said. “You could have been in Afghanistan and you would have fit right in.” As spring hit and thawing began, the road became immeasurably worse, eventually reaching a point of such unnavigability that the four-lane major thoroughfare was avoided by most drivers, with smaller side streets suddenly becoming traffic hubs. It all culminated with CAA Saskatchewan naming High Street West the worst road in Saskatchewan in their annual poll in early May – an 'honour' usually reserved for the kind of horrific highways that have been utterly neglected and forgotten for

Whether the poll had an effect on what happened shortly after will never be known. What is known is the City of Moose Jaw said enough is enough and in a special meeting on May 11 officially removed contractor Unger Construction from the resurfacing project and took over proceedings themselves. Four days later, heavy equipment was hard at work resurfacing and repairing, and by the end of summer, High Street West could be mistaken for a

NHRA drag strip, the pavement perfectly smooth from 9th Avenue all the way to 1st Avenue Northwest. And that was a cause for celebration. Businesses and supporters from the stretch of High Street West did exactly that on Saturday afternoon, braving cool and windy weather to fill the parking lot at Reality Executives at 455 High Street and take in the official High Street re-opening festivities. Hundreds of patrons took part, enjoying the free hot dogs, music by the Uncoolas and festivities to show that yes, High Street is back in business. “We've finally got it paved.

Dave O'Bright of Floors Now at 850 High Street explained why things have changed from earlier in the year. “We were actually surprised that construction took so long to start,” he said. “It would go months with nothing being done... no people, there was less traffic and it turned into less sales... It's been amazing since it re-opened. There's more traffic on the street and people coming through the doors, and people are happy with it and how well the paving job was done on High Street. Now we're looking forward to the next year and the turnaround.” Chamber of Commerce CEO Rob Clark expressed complete confidence that the High Street businesses would be back on track now that the street has been restored – something seen as a steady flow of traffic rolled by once the street was reopened after ribbon-cutting festivities. “It's all about celebrating” Clark said. “You can tell the businesses down here are resilient and come rain, snow or sleet, we were going to have this celebration today. And you have to commend the business people down here, after 13 months of what they went through, they're all on board and 99 per cent of them are still in business. So now they're all looking forward to moving forward.”

R i p e n i n g t i m e fo r C h r i st m a s c a k e s By Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express

It is ripening time for fruit cakes, usually referred to as Christmas cakes. These cakes should be baked in early November and then stored for several weeks so all the flavours meld and cakes moisten for serving — thus ripening — as described in pioneer cookbooks. This week’s recipes provide two ideas for preparing Christmas cakes, both of which have been made and enjoyed by friends and family. ••• Mini Fruit Cakes 3 cups unsifted flour 1 1/3 cups sugar 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking powder 2 tsps. ground cinnamon 1 tsp. ground nutmeg 1/2 cup orange juice 1/2 cup brandy or water

1 cup salad oil 4 eggs 1/4 cup light corn syrup 1 cup dark seedless raisins 4 cups mixed candied fruit mix 2 cups pecan halves, chopped 1/3 cup light corn syrup In large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except fruit, nuts and 1/3 cup corn syrup. Blend for 1/2 minute on low speed, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in fruits and nuts. Spoon batter into three dozen 2 1/2 inch muffin tins lined with paper baking cups. Bake at 275 degrees F for 65-70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into centre. Cool in pans for 5 minutes then remove from tins and set on cooling racks. Cool completely. Heat 1/3 cup corn syrup in small pan then brush

over tops of cakes. Place in container, cover tightly and store in refrigerator for up to two weeks. For longer storage, freeze in tightly covered containers. Note: cakes may be wrapped in cheesecloth soaked in brandy before being stored. ••• Newfoundland Light Fruit Cake 2 cups candied mixed fruit 2 cups candied cherries, cut into quarters 3 cups light raisins 2 1/2 cups flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking powder 1 cup drained crushed pineapple 1/2 cup milk 1 tsp. vanilla 1/2 tsp. almond extract 1 cup butter

2 cups light brown sugar 3 eggs Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Use 1 cup flour to mix with candied fruit, cherries and raisins. Be sure to coat evenly. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add drained pineapple, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well. Add remaining dry ingredients alternately with milk. Add floured fruit and raisins and mix well. Place batter into well-greased and paper-lined pans. Place a pan of water in oven to prevent cakes from drying as they cook. Bake cakes about 2 1/2 hours or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans. Wrap tightly and store in cool, dry place or refrigerator. Cake freezes well and keeps for a long time.

100 Years of Remembrance

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

Remembrance Day is very significant this year, as we recognize 100 years since the end of the First World War and 100 years of services honouring those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was originally called Armistice Day to commemorate the armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m.— on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Moose Jaw’s involvement in World War I was significant. The 46th Battalion, recruited throughout Saskatchewan, was mobilized out of Moose Jaw to fight in France and Flanders. The First World War was brutal and bloody, with an extremely high casualty rate. The unit came to be known as “The Suicide Battalion”. The 46th Battalion lost 1,433 with 3,484 wounded – a casualty rate of 91.5 percent. Sergeant Hugh Cairns, a member of this battalion, was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. The 46th Battalion was eventually incorporated into what is now the Saskatchewan Dragoons, headquartered in our D.V. Currie VC Armoury. The former Ross School was converted from an elementary school into a military hospital for returning injured soldiers during the War. In Moose Jaw, the first Services of Remembrance began in 1919. Individual churches held their own services, followed by veterans parading to the Cross of Sacrifice in Crescent Park for a wreath laying ceremony. In 1959, a

smaller replica of the Cross of Sacrifice was created, and the ceremony, coordinated by the Royal Canadian Legion, was held in the Civic Centre for the first time. I am very grateful to the Royal Canadian Legion for organizing the service every year since. There will be a special World War I display outside the Legion lounge to commemorate the ending of World War I. It will include photos of military activity in Moose Jaw at the time, such as troops marching to the train station from the Armoury. Thank you to Sharon from the Legion office for passing on this information and setting up the display. As individuals and as a government, it is important to recognize the invaluable contributions and sacrifices our nation’s veterans have made protecting Canada. It is a debt we can never fully repay. In the recent Throne Speech it was announced that, as a small act to show our appreciation to these brave men and women, l-r: Wayne M. Snell with brother Fred. M. Snell free fishing and hunting licenses will be offered to all Canadian veterans. We will also make moving to Saskatchewan easier for military personnel and their families. Members of the Wayne M. Snell joined the RCAF in 1942 as an aircraft memilitary and their immediate family members will be el- chanic. He was in England when the war ended. Retired, he igible for an exemption for a first-time registered vehicle came home to Ontario and became a farmer. He now lives in inspection for a vehicle brought to Saskatchewan from a Care Home in Shelburne, Ontario. Fred M. Snell joined the RCAF in 1955 and was stationed in another jurisdiction.

In Remembrance of the Medical Corp. - “Lest We Forget” By Doreen Erskine

Too bad you don’t hear too much about these wonderful Doctors who were part of the war vets. Moose Jaw was very lucky to have them. I think most of them have passed away now but it was my good fortune to get to know them. I started working at the Providence Hospital on February 1st, 1949. My first job was on Surgery with Sister Mary Madesta. After several months, the Sister came to me and said, ‘I think you would be good in the Operating Room.’ Wow, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing! “Oh Sister, I don’t know about that,” I said.

‘Come with me and I will take you over there to meet Sister Mary Desmond, Head of the Department.’ On the Monday, after this day, I had to be there at 7:45. So I was. Sister said to me, ‘Your first job is to make coffee for the doctors.’ Well, I had never made coffee at home; our family was English, and tea was the main drink. Anyways, she showed me. She gave me a coffee pot; it was a percolator. ‘Now you put the coffee grounds in this basket and water in the pot,” she said. “The basket fits on top. There’s a tube that goes through the basket to the bottom of the pot…put the lid on. Now we take it over to this hot plate (it was a three-burner hot plate that looked as old as the hills).’ She turned it on and in no time, it was bubbling away. She showed me where their sitting rom was and the tray with the cups and saucers, cream & sugar. This done and the coffee ready, the doctors started to come, all dressed up, some with bow ties and other ordinary ties. Coffee is served. They have to get out of their suits and into their operating combinate, kind of a sleeveless outfit, then to the scrub sink for quite a hand scrubbing. Over all the years, I learned a lot from them and Sister, also. A lot of these doctors were from the Medical Corp, which you hardly hear about. Moose Jaw Clinic and Hugh Young Clinic Then there were private offices for some of the specialists, mostly in the Walter Scott Building. Moose Jaw was very lucky to have them. Sister said to me, ‘We have the best doctors here in the whole of Canada – a specialist for whatever is wrong with you. You don’t have to leave Moose Jaw for anything that you have.’ What a wonderful privilege I had work with Sister and

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Cadets set tone for remembering on Nov. 11

The footsteps made in unison by a group of drilling Air Cadets echoed in the huge D.V. Currie Armoury one chilly Tuesday evening. The troops were enthusiastic as they followed the commands of their drill instructors, watched with interest by a small group of civilians. Perhaps someday those young men and women would take on careers in the military, wearing another uniform as proudly as they wore their cadet uniforms. Joyce Walter Watching the cadets marching in-step took me back several For Moose Jaw Express decades, to a time when my Dad became the drill sergeant for a group of musicians who were trying to learn a fairronjoy@sasktel.net ly simple drill formation to go along with the marches we would also play on our accordions. March composers Mr. John Phillip Sousa and Mr. Josef Wagner would likely have turned off their hearing aids during our practice so they didn’t hear us mangle their marches. At the same time, the parent’s patience with marching-challenged teenagers wore thin. In other words, we marched nicely but perhaps not in step when we didn’t have to play. We played with enthusiasm when we didn’t have to march. Put playing and marching together and even the most supportive parents on the sidelines must have felt the pain of embarrassment.

This poem, “A Real Man” is a story about my husband’s uncle and his decision to go to war way back during World War II to fight wrongs, knowing it could cost him his own life. Yes, that took determination and bravery, attributes of real men, which I admire greatly. The rest of the story is true as well…he did swear that if he made it home alive, he would always drive Ford

cars as long as he lived. And he did. He lived until 2009 and I believe the car in his garage was a 1964 Ford, which was probably the only second car he owned since the war in 1939. This was truly a tribute to the reliability of Ford vehicles in his estimation. I love good stories, and this is one of my favorites. Heroic people always have a special place in my heart.

A REAL MAN This story is about a man; his name is Handsome John. He’s my father’s older brother and one of many sons. He told me many tales, but one stood out from the rest So I’ll take the time to share it ‘cause true stories are the best. John was a very loyal man, patriotic to the core. When his country needed Real Men, John signed up to go to war. War is never glorious but when freedom is at stake, To win a war at any time, John knew what it would take. It takes determination and bravery and guts Unquestioning obedience, without any “buts…” Real Men abhor evil and mistreatment of mankind; Real Men have true character – the unwavering kind. The job that John was given when he reached the battlefield Was to drive a Bren gun carrier through the deserted barren fields. The enemy fought fiercely, and John’s carrier took a hit Damaged and quite twisted, but the engine never quit.

But we soldiered on, sometimes in step, often out of step, sometimes in tune, often playing a G when a C or F should have been under our fingers. Dad barked orders like a true drill master and in the end, shook his head and wondered why so many of my age were born with two left feet. He was surely relieved that one of his children could march and salute properly —my sister who joined the RCAF and still talks proudly of her years as a member of the regular forces, packing parachutes to potentially save the lives of pilots who depended on her expertise. We have family photos that show my brother marching confidently, with his left foot forward when others in formation were featuring their right feet. His Legion friends chided him in a friendly manner about thinking he was the only one in step. He always grinned in response and marched on. These memories of marching came as the community was donning the red poppies of remembrance, in time for honouring men and women who served in all branches of the military in order to defend their beliefs of a free and democratic society. Many died in service to their country. Those who returned carried on with their lives but none forgot what they saw in battle on those foreign soils. Their lives were changed forever. Their service is what we need to remember and honour as we stand in silence on Nov. 11. We will remember them — and be grateful. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

In Flanders Fields John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Fields.

As long as ‘she’ kept running John would carry on and fight And the battle raged for hours well on into the night. The enemy lost that battle and in time they lost the war, John made a promise to himself and this is what he swore: “Because this Bren gun carrier and her engine made by Ford Brought luck to me and my men and helped us win this war, To remind me just how fortunate I am to be alive Ford is the vehicle I choose forevermore to drive.”

We will be forever grateful for your sacrifice made for our freedom.

We will remember them.

When John got home and kept his word just as he said he’d do And he’s only purchased Ford cars, though there’s only been a few, Because they keep on going and never need repairs For fifty years Ford brought him luck, on this belief he swears! J. H. Klotz c.2003

Moose Jaw during WWI by Scott Hellings for Moose Jaw Express

Moose Javians contributed much to the war effort during WWI, with several units having come from Moose Jaw. This included the 46th (South Saskatchewan) Battalion, better known as the Suicide Squad because of the unit’s high casualty rate — 91.5 per cent. Other local units included the 60th Rifles of Canada, the 128th Frontiersmen Battalion - Canadian Expeditionary Forces, 210th Battalion, the 229th, and two squadrons of the 27th Light Horse, which was under the command of Lt.-Col. George S. Tuxford. Although the war proved costly, it was initially met with great fervor. The news that Britain was entering the war on August 4, 1914 led to an outpouring of patriotism. Throughout that day, many lined up outside the newspaper office for more information about the possibility of war. When the news finally did arrive, thousands of Moose Javians poured into the streets cheering and singing. A spontaneous parade, led by the 60th Rifles, travelled down Main St. Once the war was well underway, throngs of people would gather to greet soldiers on their way to training before heading overseas. Unfortunately, many of these young men did not return home. After the war’s conclusion, it was again time to celebrate. The news travelled quickly and thousands of people hit the streets, despite word first being received in the early hours of the morning on November 11, 1918. Flags were waved, fireworks were set off, bands played on, and a large bonfire was lit in Crescent Park around 5 a.m. The celebrations lasted more than 24 hours and Main St. was deemed almost impassible due to the large numbers of people and cars. Moose Javians were certainly happy that the Great War had come to an end at last.

Selebians: Poppy Appeal Photos contributed by Bryan Wilcockson Friend of the Moose Jaw Express, Bryan Wilcockson from Burn/Selby, North Yorkshire, UK has sent some Remembrance Day photos to share with our readers. The area he lives has a deep connection to Canada and Remembrance Day this time of year. Although the current Snowbirds were formed in 1978, its earliest beginnings started at Burn during WWII when 431 (Iroquois) Squadron Royal Canadian Air Force was created as part of the Commonwealth contribution under control of RAF Bomber Command. The year was 1942 when Hitler’s forces dominated most of Western Europe and Allied air forces began to fight back. Thanks to the Royal Canadian Air Force, a runway was built and a bomber base established in Burn, near Shelby. It became home to the newly formed Royal Canadian Air Force 431 (Iroquois) Squadron and on November 11th, 1942, 431 Squadron (now known as the Snowbirds) was formed at Burn Airfield. For this year’s Remembrance Day 2018, the matriarchs of Selby have been busy knitting poppies to decorate the Abbey and creating a ‘Poppy River’, as well as a ‘Poppy Waterfall’ to flow from the clock tower. Over 57,000 knitted poppies have been received. The Abbey dates from 1069 and William the Conqueror. His son Henry I of England was allegedly born in the Abbey Gatehouse which stood roughly where I took the first photograph from. The RAF squadron battle flags can be seen high above the choir. The Book of Remembrance to the missing aircrews are below the memorials to Joe Barton VC and David Wilkerson. The present Queen has also distributed Maundy Money from the Abbey. More recently, Taiwanese pop mega-star Jay Chou got married there in a fairy-tale ceremony that sparked a media frenzy in his homeland.

War connects countries in Remembrance Bob McCleary from Illinois recently contacted the Moose Jaw Express regarding a story that had run in their local weekly paper, the Golden Prairies News in Assumption, Illinois with a connection to Moose Jaw. “I thought you might enjoy hearing how a man from the USA fought for Canada in that horrible war. My wife is the daughter of B. Ilene Heiter Wise of Assumption and my wife’s Grandfather was Emmet Heiter one of the 1914, first full-time, professional, Moose Jaw firefighters. Emmet joined the Canadian Army with four other firefighters from Moose Jaw in 1915. The series is provided by Marguerite Heiter Jackson, another daughter of Emmet, who still lives in Assumption. She has found a collection of his letters home from the First World War mailed from Canada, England, and France. The last episode he wrote from France and three of the firefighters he went with had been killed in the 1916 Battle of the Somme. “We have been to Moose Jaw and have seen the pictures of Emmet and all the men he loved in Canada. We have loved Moose Jaw every time we have visited and my wife’s connection to that wonderful area has been a blessing. As a note, Emmet Heiter is the driver of the car in the fire department mural painted on the side of the building by the original fire station.�Reme McCleary goes on to say, “My grandfather and his brother fought in World War I as volunteers with the 33rd Illinois Division of the National Guard. His brother and him fought in the Meuse-Argonne battle and both were gassed and Uncle Vic was wounded bad by machine gun fire. I have my grandpa’s gas mask and helmet from that horrible war and honoring all those men who stepped forward for our freedom, no matter what country’s flag they fought under, is needed. Thank you to the Pana News Group, Illinois, for allowing us to print the article (below) that connects their area with Moose Jaw. The article appeared in one of their papers, Golden Prairie News, written by James Bugg, correspondent. “The War to End All Wars One hundred years ago, on November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m., the Armistice ending World World I was signed “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month�. World War I, which at the time was known as “The Great War�, was to be the “War to End All Wars�. The Assumption Historical Society will be publishing a weekly article concerning World War I leading up to Veterans Day, November 11, 2018. November 11 was known as Armistice Day to honor WW I veterans until 1954 when it was changed to Veterans Day to honor all veterans from all wars.

to England. His troop ship was erroneously reported as sunk by torpedoes with the loss of 1,200. The 46th landed at Plymouth, England, on October 31, 1915, from where they were sent to Camp Bramshott, England, for more training. By August, 1916, Emmet was in the trenches in France. In a letter dated, September 22, 1915, Emmet explained that he joined the army because “I thought it would be a good chance to see the world as it will be a great experience, the best and worst time of a person’s life�. Little did he know how bad it was going to be.�

Emmet Heiter with the other four men that he went to war with. Emmet is the man standing to the right. The family story is that the five are the five Moose Jaw firefighters that enlisted together. Three of these five left this earth during the 1916 Somme campaign as Emmet’s letters home tell the story.

The articles center around about fifty letters and cards that Emmet Heiter, Marguerite Heiter Jackson’s father, wrote to his family during the war. Marguerite has those letters, and they are a poignant commentary of what it is like to be in a war. Emmet was raised east of Assumption. On December 11, 1909, at the age of 18, he traveled to Savannah, MO, to visit his Uncle Ham Mathias. Emmet decided that he would stay with Ham, and moved with him and his Aunt Fannie on west to Weatherly, MO. In March of 1910, he traveled to White Lake, SD, to stay with John Oakes who had lived three miles east of Assumption. Several people from the Assumption area had gone to South Dakota to farm. From White Lake, he went to Kimball, SD. Emmet kept traveling north until he reached Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1912 where he worked for the fire department until September 15, 1915, when he joined the Canadian Army. Emmet was attached to the 46th Battalion, Canadian Army. After training at Camp Hughes, located near Carberry in Manitoba, Canada, he was sent by train to Halifax, Nova Scotia where the 46th departed by ship

Fundraiser helps refurbish Legion’s cenotaph Matthew Gourlie

They don’t make’em like they used to, so the local chapter of the Royal Canadian Legion opted to refurbish their cenotaph instead of replacing it. Thursday night, the Legion Branch No. 59 in partnership with Jones’ Funeral Home hosted a dinner and a movie fundraiser to raise funds for the cenotaph renovations at Parkview Funeral Home. “They’ve cleaned it up. There’s new paint and they fixed some of the trim and replaced some of the pieces that were damaged over the course of many years. They cut it into smaller pieces. When we do move the cenotaph, it’s getting harder and harder for some of my older volunteers to lift it,” explained Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 59 president Roy LaBuick. “It still looks the same as it has done in the past structurally, but it’s made into smaller pieces so it’s a little easier to manoeuvre. Leeville Construction also made some dollies for it so that we can wheel it around now, which will make life a lot easier.” The cenotaph was built when the city’s annual Remembrance Day services moved inside to the Civic Centre. The cenotaph is in five tiers with a cross extending from the top of the structure and its main elements were made from fir. Dayna Chamberlain from W.J. Jones & Son Funeral Home got the ball rolling on the project and helped organize the fundraiser. “Dayna had approached us about our cenotaph and maybe refurbishing it or building a new one... all kinds of ideas were going around,” LaBuick said. “We were going back and forth for some time and then Dayna at Jones got in touch with Grant (Robbins) at Leeville Construction and he said they would have a look at it. He had his boys

haul it over to their shop. They were quite impressed by the structure of it and understood why it was as heavy as it was. “The idea was to try to lighten it up.” Because the cenotaph is in pieces now it can be stored in the Legion’s garage as opposed to having to score it in a trailer. LaBuick said that now it’s as light as it’s going to get, but more importantly it’s much more portable. He said he couldn’t guess how heavy the structure actually is, but over the decades it took on its share of knocks and dings while being transported. “It was all made out of fir, you can’t even get fir 2x4s and 2x6s any more,” LaBuick said. “There’s 3/4 inch plywood on some of it. So, you can imagine the weight. If you’ve ever lifted one sheet of 3/4 inch plywood on your own, there’s some weight to it. Imagine that on a cenotaph that’s a good 16 feet around.” In addition to the dinner, Larry Cappetto’s film I’m Here Because You Were There was screened. “He’s gone all around the world and interviewed veterans,” LaBuick said. “He’s interviewed veterans in Europe, the United States, Canada and Australia and talked to them about their experiences. We wanted to do something like this because right now there aren’t many World War II veterans left. “You can read books, but I feel it’s always interesting to listen to some of the veterans -- when you can get them to talk about it.” LaBuick said he appreciated the support of the people who attended the event and also the support of their business partners. “We’re quite pleased with Leeville coming forward and

helping out and Dayna and her entire staff coming up with the idea of the dinner and a movie night,” he said. “They’ve been a big help and very big supporters of the Legion and what we do. Not just this time of the year, but throughout the year.”

Warriors take split in weekend action Tribe dominates Kootenay night after loss to Saskatoon Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors came roaring out of the gates, eventually pounding out a 5-1 win over the road-weary Kootenay Ice on Saturday at Mosaic Place. It was just a matter of getting the job done and putting another two points on the board. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the Tribe had a reason to come out hard against the Ice – they’d fallen 5-2 to the Saskatoon Blades only 24 hours earlier and a bounceback was most certainly one of their main goals, even if things were a little unnervingly close through 20 minutes. “We had lots of zone time in the first period and couldn’t score, (Duncan) McGovern’s a good goalie, he has a good record and he’s tough to beat but I think we just wore him down,” said Warriors coach Tim Hunter. “That was a key, keep pushing the pace, keep up with the pressure and make them play in their own end, play a 200-foot game, because when it’s a tired team, you have to take advantage of that. Everyone gets in those situations and it’s no fun and that’s just how it is.” Despite carrying the play in the first period, the Warriors only managed eight shots. That all changed in the second, as they outshot the Ice 21-7 in the frame and scored four times to take a 4-1 lead. Keenan Taphorn – who was recently acquired from the Ice alongside twin brother Kaeden – led the assault with a pair of goals, including a brain-bender from be-

hind the Kootenay goal line that somehow found its way past McGovern. “It felt great! It was good to help our team against the team I was traded from, and I’m happy I played the way I did,” Taphorn said. “I think it was a good game for our win; we had lots of chances. I liked the way we played and all that matters is we got the win

in the end.” Yegor Buyalski and Tristan Langan also scored in the period. “It was second-period-itis, we wanted to do some things extra and different, an individual map instead of a team map,” Hunter said. “It’s a tough situation when you play a team that’s played three games in a row, four games in five nights. Credit to their team, though, they didn’t go away, they didn’t quit, and they played hard. But our guys stuck to our game, we pressured them right away and had lots of chances when we did stick to the game plan.” Dalton Hamaliuk scored the Warriors’ other goal in the third. Jaeger White had the lone marker for Kootenay. Brodan Salmond made 17 saves in earning the win in goal; McGovern made 38 saves for the Ice. Things didn’t go as well against Saskatoon one night earlier at Mosaic Place, as Max Gerlach had a pair of goals to go along with single markers from Jackson Caller and Kirby Dach as the Blades took their 5-2 win. Josh Paterson had an empty net goal. Taphorn and Langan scored for the Warriors, who were tied 1-1 after the first and trailed 3-1 through two. Salmond had 31 stops in the loss; Dorrin Luding stopped 24 for Saskatoon. The Warriors now have a week off before hosting Red Deer on Nov. 10 (7 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Brook leads way for Team WHL in Canada-Russia Series Warriors defenceman to captain all-star team for two-game set Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Josh Brook is a natural choice for a leader. Brook, 19, captained Team WHL for the two games against Team Russia in the CIBC Canada-Russia Series that took place on Nov. 5 and 6 in Kamloops and Vancouver respectively. While the scores were unavailable as of press time, there’s little question the Montreal Canadiens draft pick and his Warriors teammates – forward Justin Almeida and defenceman Jett Woo also took the ice in the contests – was looking forward to the opportunity to shine. And lead. “It’s a huge honour, there are a lot of leaders out there, every one of those guys is a leader on their club teams so it’s something special to be chosen,” Brook said of being named WHL captain. “I’m just going to try and go out there and play my game and try to help us win, lead by example and things like 18112SS1

fencemen with five goals and 15 points in 12 games – hopes that experience will pay off even in the rather unusual Canada-Russia format. “I’ve been through the system a little bit, but never anything like this Canada Russia series, so it’s kind of exciting to go through it,” Brook said. “It’s going to be cool to get on the ice with the other guys and get to know them. I’ve been battling with a lot of them for a couple years now, so it’s going to be fun to be out there on the same team.” The Canada-Russia Series will be the latest national-level all-star appearance for 18-year-old Woo, a second-round pick of the Vancouver Canucks in the 2018 NHL Draft. A highly touted defenceman his entire career, Woo had represented Canada at every world age-group championship leading into the Series and upcoming World Junior championship.

Humphreys looks back on amazing figure skating career Former national champion recently inducted into Sports Hall of Fame Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Susan Humphreys is among the rarest of the rare, when it comes nationally successful athletes in their chosen sport. Humphreys is the only national figure skating champion in Moose Jaw’s history, having won the Canadian senior women’s title in 1997 after a half-decade of podium finishes at the highest level of skating in the country. Her success as a skater made it all but inevitable that the Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame would come calling, which it did this spring when it was announced Humphreys would be one of six inductees into the Hall for 2018. “It’s quite humbling and I feel so honoured that they would take the time to honour me,” Humphreys said prior to the recent induction banquet, where she took her place on the Wall of Fame located on the second floor of the Mosaic Place concourse. “I feel a lot of gratitude; this is the start of my story and I have a lot of family and people who have followed me through the years and still live here. So it means a lot to me.” Humphreys was born in Moose Jaw and lived in the city until she was 10, first learning to skate under the tutelage of legendary local figure skating instructor Carol Humphreys, who moonlighted as Susan’s aunt. “Aunt Carol, she was our biggest supporter and had a very big impact in our participation in the sport, totally,” Susan said. “She was able to see all the fruition of that and unfortunately just passed away well before her time in the 50s. “Carol was so passionate about skating, all the way from the last time I was on the ice until the last time I remember seeing her, skating was it. She always wanted us to be better, to push us out of our comfort zone. And that was one of the thing that

pushed us out of Moose Jaw, she wanted to see me go on and do this.” Humphreys has plenty of memories when it comes to the city itself, too, memories that all came flooding back during a tour around the city. “I remember going to King George, and we drove all around and saw our old house and places we used to play,” she said. “It’s funny because back then you weren’t allowed to cross this street…and the old Crushed Can, six in the morning going there and skating... yeah, this is my early formative years growing up here.” Humphreys first hit the national spotlight when she was 18 at the 1993 senior women’s nationals in Hamilton – she finished in third place behind Josee Chouinard and Karen Preston, followed by a second-place showing in Edmonton a year later and a five-year run of elite skating that culminated in her winning championship outright in 1997. Humphreys also saw action at the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer and competed for Canada in two world championships. All in all, it was a whirlwind of an experience that, for awhile, was just life for a world-class athlete. “It’s a rare occurrence and it takes a long time for that cycle to go through, as an athlete for a person to realize that,” Humphreys said. “That was the path you took and ‘oh, wow that is kind of rare’ and not everyone was able to do that. “It’s this journey of working through obstacles and training and all this stuff coming at you. There are a lot of things you can’t control, so you have to keep your eye on what you’re training to go for. I think when I finally got to that point when I was at the worlds and going to the Olympics and medalling at the national level, at the time you don’t think it’s a big deal. You

Former Canadian senior women’s national champion figure skater Susan Humphreys was inducted into the Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame recently. think ‘I want to go to the next thing, the next thing, the next thing’ and it takes some time to appreciate everything later on.” For Humphreys, part of that appreciation

involved remaining in the sport once her competitive career came to a close – she’s now an elite power skating instructor at her home in Edmonton, with a focus on high-level instruction. That’s where another recent link to Moose Jaw comes into play. One of the first skaters she worked with in her new program was none other than Tyler Smithies, then a highly ranked minor hockey prospect out of Beaumont, Alta. Fast forward to today, and Smithies is a member of the Moose Jaw Warriors in his second full season with the team. “He’s a great kid and I’m super proud of what he’s doing,” Humphreys said. “It’s odd, I’ve worked with a lot of younger players coming up and when I was working with the WHL guys, the first player I worked with ends up going to Moose Jaw. It’s just really funny how things happen sometimes.” Humphreys was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Oct. 20 alongside former NHL standout Doug Smail, baseball coach and builder Jim Baba, baseball and curling coach Roger Anholt, athletics builder Stanley ‘Hub’ Gutheridge and baseball and hockey standout George Hunchuk.


Two undefeated teams left in Original 16 Cash League Pro-Tec Electric, Forged 365 sitting with perfect records after first month of play Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Pro-Tec Electric and Forged 365 remain the final two undefeated teams in the Original 16 Cash League as the calendar turns over to November. Neither team had an easy time in the most recent round of action at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre, with Pro-Tec Electric (Stan Barnsley, 4-0)) taking a 9-7 win over JGL Hawk’s Agro (Matt Froehlich, 0-3) and Forged 365 (Donna Ackerman, 3-0) battling to an 6-5 win over KMS (Ben Gamble, 2-3). Gray trailed 7-6 heading into the final end and scored three for the win; Ackerman found herself tied 5-5 heading into the eighth before picked up her single and the victory. Perennial league contender Seaborn Insurance (Joel Jordison, 4-1) suffered their first loss, trailing 3-0 early and giving up a pair in the seventh to fall 5-2 to Terra Grains (Ralph Courtnage, 3-2). League action featured one other close contest on Wednesday, as Moose Jaw Fountain Tire/Keons (Warren Marcotte, 3-2) scored one in the eighth and stole in the extra end for a 7-6 win over TaxTeam (Murray Stroeder, 2-3). Other games saw EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 3-2) build a 8-1 lead through four against ProTec Video (Wade Gray, 1-4) and take a 9-3 victory; John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 3-2) stole points in four straight ends on his way to a 10-2 win over Barb Wallace (2-3) while Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais, 1-4) picked up his first win after building a 10-0 lead through five ends against David Gray (1-5).

Local Art Guild unleashing annual exhibit on Thursday Matthew Gourlie

Art is everywhere in Moose Jaw. From murals to sculptures and wood carvings in Crescent Park, the city is blessed with visual art. For the 51st consecutive year, the Moose Jaw Art Guild will host their annual exhibit at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery. The “Unleashed” Exhibition Opening is scheduled for this Thursday, Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend. The exhibition will run until Jan. 6, 2019. “It’s really been great for us to have this opportunity for other people to see what we’ve been doing,” said Karen Walpole, president of the Moose Jaw Arts Guild. “When the museum was being built, they asked the ladies in the Art Guild what was needed and ever since then they’ve given us an opportunity to come here at Christmastime and do the art show, which is wonderful.” Walpole expects a diverse mix of media and subject matter in the exhibit. She was hoping that this year’s theme, unleashed, would give the artists a lot of freedom. “It was nice and simple and I was hoping that people would come up with some great ideas,” she said. “We have one fellow who comes in from Baildon, Jerry Kaiser, and lately he’s been working with cement. I saw his artist statement come in and he did some sort of Donald Trump gargoyle and I’m just dying to see that.” The exhibit will also feature a piece from a high school

Peacock is going to be taking part this year. I’m not sure what she has in store for us. I like the idea of the students being involved. I think it’s wonderful for them to get a chance to show here.” The Guild has been in existence for more than 80 years under various names. They currently have 17 members and in recent months have tried to change the way they go about their business. They used to hold monthly meetings and now their trying to focus on learning from each other and having more fun. “We’re just like family, though; we’re a good group. We’re changing,” Walpole said. “We used to have monthly meetings. These meetings would drag on for an hourand-a-half or two hours and you wouldn’t learn anything new. Now we’ve decided to get rid of some of these business meetings and do programs.” One of their recent programs had one of their members showing off little tricks of the trade to help with perspective and other practical applications. “In the spring, we’re going to invite members of the community to come in if they’re what I call ‘closet painters’, if they paint at home and don’t show it to anybody,” Walpole said. The group also meets once a month on Friday afternoons at the Legion to have a coffee, work on their art and socialize.

Ontario, Saskatchewan premiers vow to reduce provincial trade barriers By Paola Loriggio - THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO _ The premiers of Ontario and Saskatchewan are working together to reduce trade barriers between their provinces. Speaking at a joint news conference in Toronto, Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his Saskatchewan counNOTICE OF INTENTION TO CONSIDER THE ADOPTION OF A DEVELOPMENT LEVY BYLAW

The Council of the City of Moose Jaw intends to consider the adoption of a Development Levy Bylaw pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007. The purpose of the bylaw is to establish development levy rates for recovering all or a part of the municipality’s capital costs of providing, altering, expanding or upgrading services and facilities associated, directly or indirectly, with a new proposed development. A copy of the proposed Bylaw may be inspected by any interested person at the Office of the City Clerk, City Hall, 228 Main Street North, or on the city website, www.moosejaw.ca under “news releases”, from Tuesday, November 6th, 2018 until Monday, November 26th, 2018 from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Written submissions must be received by Planning and Development Services, 228 Main Street North, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 3J8, by 10:00 AM on Monday, November 26th, 2018 in person or by email at planning@moosejaw.ca The proposed Bylaw and any submissions regarding the proposed Bylaw will be considered at the regular meeting of City Council to be held in Council Chambers, City Hall, at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, November 26th, 2018. DATED at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan this 6th day of November, 2018. Myron Gulka-Tiechko - City Clerk

terpart Scott Moe said they have signed a memorandum of understanding on the issue. Ford said Canada has focused on free trade with the United States at the expense of internal trade and must reduce interprovincial hurdles to stay economically competitive. ``I hear from business leaders that this is one of the primary obstacles to attracting new investment and jobs to our country. We can’t afford not to act,’’ Ford said. ``Most of barriers when it comes to free trade be-

tween provinces is regulations. We’re going to put a list together, both myself and Premier Moe, of different sectors _ let’s use transportation for example _ where we can start knocking down some regulations,’’ he said. Though they gave few concrete details of their plan, Moe promised swift action. ``I think you can look for us to move very quickly on initiatives,’’ he said. The pair would not, however, say why they did not send representatives to a meeting on internal trade last week. ``We’re just signing an MOU and we’ll move forward on that MOU,’’ Ford said. Ontario’s New Democrats said the two premiers’ absence from the meeting suggests they aren’t interested in working with the rest of Canada on this issue. ``If you’re going to have interprovincial trade agreements they should be negotiated on a pan-Canadian basis,’’ NDP legislator Peter Tabuns said. ``A patchwork is not a good thing for us, it’s not a good thing for the rest of the country.’’ Ford and Moe are already joined in the opposition to Ottawa’s carbon pricing plan for provinces that don’t have their own system in place by next year. Both provinces have launched legal challenges to the federal plan and are intervening in each other’s cases. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Central Lutheran Church Brings Refugee Family to Moose Jaw

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Recalibration I’m midway through the 30 Day Power Purge. I have been thinking about what I’m learning in this 30 day decluterring group and I believe God has been using it to get my attention and teach me some valuable lessons. He constantly wants us to advance to the next level of maturity and be prepared for the season ahead. There are some obvious results that I’ve achieved such as “cleaning out the closets” so to speak... a lot of the deep, dark recesses like under the bathroom and kitchen sink, clothes closet areas and cupboards have been given a fresh clean and are clutter free. Aside from the physical benefits of editing my home, I’ve also reaped other rewards. First of all, I see how accountability brings us to a new level. Healthy “peer pressure”, if you want to call it that (or accountability) has motivated me to do much more than I would’ve these last 16 days than I would have without this group. Secondly, I see how “fellowshipping” through virtual connections via social media has encouraged me as several have been cheerleading others along. It gives me more oomph to complete my tasks. We all need cheerleaders. Thirdly, I have seen how we need to be more vulnerable (which is a healthy thing). Of course, “don’t cast your pearls before swine” but be encouraged to stop keeping a facade of the perfect life, with the perfect family and the perfect home, etc. Vulnerability and authenticity allows others to realize that it’s ok to not live a perfect life - especially in this social media rich culture we live in. Fourthly, I have seen more clearly the power of FOCUS. I admit I have struggled with where to focus in the past few months... and one day Hubby got pretty firm with me (he rarely, if ever gives me his opinion on something) and told me to get a hold of myself and get focussed on something! It was kind of an epiphany and now has become a bit of an inside joke between us... but it was what I needed to get out of the slump I was in and it encouraged me to begin to explore what I presently need to focus on! Not only have I been able to get my physical house in order but I’ve been working on getting my spiritual house in order (which is intertwined with emotional and mental health as well). It has helped me to think more clearly, have better focus and see the results of connecting with others, being accountable, being open and vulnerable, and to be more determined to focus on what needs to be done in this season. I know God is getting us all ready for the season ahead and He doesn’t want us carrying toxic stuff into the future. We are in a season of preparation, restructuring and recalibration. Prayer: “Father God, I believe you are calling us to get our houses in order. Help us to clear out the things that are cluttering our lives. Give us strategies to clean and purge our homes to be a place of order and refuge. Help us to recalibrate and see our messes for what they are and then be diligent to deal with the stuff. Our closets are pictures of our hearts. Create in us the desire to clean up our closets and clean up our hearts. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us for Your glory. Amen.”

On September 26, 2018, the family of Abraham Chol and his wife Achol Paluat arrived in Canada. Central Lutheran Church’s Refugee Sponsorship Committee had applied back in June 2017 to bring them to Canada, under the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program, in conjunction with Canadian Lutheran World Relief, our Sponsorship Agreement Holder. Abraham and Achol had been living since 1992 in Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya, after fleeing brutal violence and civil war in their native country of Sudan. (In 2011 the southern part of the country, where they had previously lived, became the independent country of South Sudan). The conflict in South Sudan continues to the present day. Abraham and Achol have seven children ranging in age from one to seventeen years old. About a week after their arrival, with the help of committee members, the family moved into their new home in South Hill. The five oldest children have started school. Abraham has started language classes at the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council. The Sponsorship Committee continues to provide support and assistance as they adjust to their new life in Canada. About a year earlier, the Sponsorship Committee had welcomed Abraham’s brother John to Moose Jaw. John had been living in the same camp as Abraham and family. This was the first sponsorship undertaking for Central Lutheran Church. The Refugee Sponsorship Committee wishes to recognize the contributions of church members, as well as others in the community, who have helped financially,

Rebecca and Moses want to express their appreciation to Central Lutheran Church and others in the community who have helped, and continue to help, in supporting her family members, by volunteering their time or making financial or inkind donations. The following is an open letter from Moses and Rebecca: Dear Central Lutheran and Friends, There are not enough thank-you’s to express our gratitude for everything the church, and friends, have done for Abraham and Achol’s family, as well as John Ador. We thank you for your gracious kindness. We thank you for the dedication, effort and time sacrificed. We thank you for all the donations received, whether small or large. We are blessed to have so many kind-hearted people lending a generous hand. You have welcomed the Chol family with open arms and given them the opportunity for a better life. None of this would be possible without you. May God bless each and every one of you, now and forever. Sincerely, Rebecca Chuol and Moses Riak

All members of the community are invited to this event, which will feature locally made handcrafted items. Rebecca Chuol, who is a sister of John and Abraham, has been living in Moose Jaw for many years, with her husband Moses Riak and their four children (all born in Canada).

HELLAND, Alfred "Lyle" It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden passing of Lyle Helland on Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018 at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan due to complications after a brief illness. He was predeceased by his father, Alfred; mother, Lillian; siblings: Kenny, Gerry and Barry; and his favourite daughter-in-law, LeeAnne. Lyle is survived by his loving wife, Frani; children: Teri (Greg), Dale, Traci (Randy), Dean, Tevi (Mark), Trelee (Bruce) and David; ten grandchildren: Amber (Rion), Shasta (Dustin), Ashley (Curtis), Shayn (Paula), Mark, Victoria, Jiness, Kristian, Reece and Jake; seven great-grandchildren: Zak, Jackson, Mya, Reid, Presley, Logan and Mason; brother, Lorne; sister, Darolyn (Robert); and brother-in-law, Grant (Loretta). Lyle was born on the farm near Ardill, Saskatchewan on December 1st, 1933. As a child he and his siblings were active and competitive in a variety of sports. That competitive love of sports was passed down to all of his family. Known for his loud motorbike on the streets of Mossbank, he attracted his bride of 60 years Frances and during their time together they raised a family of seven children in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Lyle worked as a farmer and for the City of Moose Jaw, Cypress Paving and Wilms Transport, and for the past 25 years he was self-employed. Lyle became well known for his endeavours in bringing the WHL to Moose Jaw in 1984 and as a talent scout for the Victoria Cougars and Medicine Hat Tigers. As a scout for the Medicine Hat Tigers he was fortunate enough to win two Memorial Cups. Lyle and Frani were deeply appreciated for their dedication to the running of Memorial Field and he was well known for the "Lyle Burger". Lyle and Frani spent many years travelling. They went to Palm Springs, Hawaii, Norway and across Canada. Lyle was known as the unofficial Mayor of Moose Jaw. He was a pillar of the community, everyone’s biggest fan and had an eye for a special talent in every kid. You could not go to a game or a practice without seeing Lyle in the stands cheering everyone on. To our family he was our husband, Dad, Poppa, Grandpa and Great-Grandpa but to everyone whoever met him he was their friend and he will be sorely missed. A Celebration of Lyle’s Life was held at The Moose Jaw Cosmo Senior Citizen Centre, 235 3rd Avenue NE, Moose Jaw, SK on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018. In lieu of flowers the family respectfully asks you to make a donation in Lyle’s name to Moose Jaw Minor Hockey, 370 Saskatchewan St W, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 2T2 or any local sports organization of your choice. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Michelle Surtees Funeral Director 306693-4550 www.moosejawfuneralhome.com

JOYCE YOUNG On October 10, 2018, at the age of 98, Joyce Young said goodbye. She left in the same manner as she lived – with grace, gratitude and a beautiful peacefulness. Joyce Gwendolyn Young (nee Hubble) was born August 20, 1920 in London, England. She emigrated to Canada with her family 8 months later. She grew up in Winnipeg, surrounded by 3 brothers and 3 sisters who adored their baby sister and included her in their busy lives of sports, church life and especially music. Joyce earned a teaching degree at U of M and taught for 6 years. In 1948 she married Dr. Arthur Francis Young. She devoted her life to supporting him and being a wonderful mother to their 3 children. As a former English teacher Joyce was a gifted communicator and maintained a lively card and letter writing correspondence with friends and family all her life. Joyce found friendship and inspiration in all aspects of Zion United Church, and in her PEO sisterhood. Joyce and Art loved having company and were gracious hosts to many guests in their home. Joyce’s cooking and sparkling energetic personality made each guest feel most welcome and comfortable. Joyce and Art enjoyed travelling with friends and spending time with family at their cottage in Northwestern Ontario. Joyce was a gifted musician. She conducted choirs, taught piano and voice, and accompanied choirs and soloists. One of Joyce’s greatest joys was helping young people to enjoy and love music. It was Joyce’s desire to be a support and a blessing to the people she came in contact with. She saw beauty everywhere and she was a calm and peaceful presence to everyone she met. Joyce found and inspired love all her life. She was predeceased by her husband in 2010. Her love lives on in the hearts of her 3 children: Maureen (Ron) Johnson, Graham (Denise) Young, and Kathleen (Paul) Sudom-Young; 6 grandchildren: Jenne (Jan), Sam (Mandi), Natasha (Jory), Landon, Simone (Bryan), and Dalyce (Casey) and 6 great-grandchildren: Benjamin, Ella, Aubrey, Denym, Charlie, and Leo; as well as many nieces and nephews. Joyce’s family would like to express heartfelt gratitude to the exceptional staff at Extendicare who truly loved mom for the past 7 years. For those so wishing, memorial donations may be made to Zion United Church, General Fund, 423 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK, S6H 0W5. A Celebration of Joyce’s life was held at Zion United Church, 423 Main St. N, Moose Jaw, SK on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 1:30 pm. Reverend Tim Ellis will officiate. In living memory of Joyce, a memorial planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.wjjonesandson. com (Obituaries).

Cheapo Bucket List



Whether we admit it or not, most of us have a list of things we would like to accomplish in our lifetimes. After the movie was released, we have called it a Bucket List. My bucket list is not nearly as grand as the movie’s epic list but at least my list is by Dale “bushy” affordable and hopefully Bush easily accomplished. When we go to town we often shop at Walmart. Every time I enter the store I look to see if the electric powered shopping cart/ scooters are available or in use. If they are in use, I keep on the alert because I have seen little old ladies run amok in the store with wild abandon. They have full-faced grins while they are ramming and roaming around the store, so a shopping cart/scooter rampage is one of the things on my modest bucket list. I am still able bodied and I do not want to be causing mayhem and destruction if there is someone who is un-able-bodied who needs the cart/scooter…to cause mayhem and destruction. I will wait until I need the cart/scooter, but until then, I have lots of time to plan my attack. My body is a temple…in ruins, but I have recently been thinking about getting a tattoo and that

is another item on my budget bucket list. I have been considering a few pieces of art to be inked on my beautiful alabaster skin and while my current favorites are the Canadian flag or Mrs. B’s name over my heart, there are others to contemplate. I have little or no hair on my head and unless there is a major discovery of hair growth tonic, I shall remain hairless forever unless I get a tattoo of a beautiful head of hair, like Elvis’ or Fabio’s. I would add a little grey to the tattoo, so I would look my age and not look phoney. I have also been looking at my beer belly and thinking there must be a way of getting rid of it. Again this becomes a budget bucket list item. And again I can strike this item off my budget bucket list by visiting the tattoo parlour and having the artist enhance my belly by drawing a six-pack of abs on my gut. In fact, there is enough room on my abdomen to draw an eight-pack or two six-packs. There is enough room IN my belly for a few six-packs, so why not? My budget bucket list will include the opportunity for self-improvement and personal growth. I have already begun that process by addressing one of my biggest fears… the dark! I never realized how uncomfortable the darkness made me feel until we moved to Liarton where the streetlights are few and far between. I have always had a modest collection of flashlights of all sorts, currently numbering about forty. Is that too many?

I have begun to address both my fear of darkness and an apparent obsession with flashlights by slowly giving my largest flashlights away and by doing more things in the dark. Not only is the size of my collection getting smaller but so is the size of my collection…get it? This budget bucket list item may take a while to accomplish but it is already saving me money in batteries and I am down to about twenty flashlights in the house… the others are in the garage, truck, car, treehouse, shed… etc. My budget bucket list is never going to end or be completed because I am constantly saying to myself, “I wonder if…?” and then I try to act on the addition to my list. Just the other day at hockey I was watching the Zamboni guy and I said… hmmm. Someday I will be a Zamboni-ist.
