For nearly 20 years, Moose Jaw Families for Change has worked to provide residential support services for those who need assistance in their day-to-day lives. Thanks to the Co-Op Good Fuel Day promotion, their new building -- located at 335 4th Ave SW, the old South Hill Conexus Credit Union -- will receive some much-needed upgrades and improvements as they look to expand and centralize their wide variety of services. Co-Op recently donated $10,119 to MJFFC after their annual Good Fuel Day, which saw 10 cents from every litre of fuel sold donated to the charity. That money will go to good use, said MJFFC program co-ordinator Mike Bachiu, especially when it comes to renovating their new space – improved wheelchair access, ceiling tracks and a wide variety of other infrastructure projects are among the costs that need to be covered.

“We’re really happy they decided to choose us this year, this donation will definitely make a difference,” Bachiu said. “We want to help people live their best lives possible and having a chance to offer new services and programs is something we always want to be able to do.”

The funds will also go towards new programs to help residents improve their
quality of life – with potential courses ranging from food preparation and how to go to restaurants to a wide variety of day-to-day activities and entertainment residents might enjoy. “It’s all part of what we’re trying to do to help promote their independence and quality of life,” Bachiu said. “Some of them might seem like little things, but it can mean a lot to someone having a chance to become a little more independent in their lives.” The new facility has the added bonus of centralizing offices from the three group homes Families for Change operates in the city – previously, office space was located in the basement of each of the homes; now the offices are all located at the new building.

The use of a solid fuel-fired appliance can be very rewarding. If you are thinking about installing a free-standing wood stove, it should be installed by a qualified professional. Also, advise your insurance broker of your plans prior to any changes as they may affect your insurance policy. To increase your safety, equip your home with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. Fires are warming and enjoyable but can also destroy property. Please be careful.
Understanding Public Accounts
From time to time, it comes to my attention that constituents may have questions about a certain aspect of our legislative Moose Jaw North process. I encourage anyone to ask questions to Warren Michelson, MLA help be informed. Government can be complex and the more familiar we are with our legislative system, the better we are able to meaningfully participate in the democratic process to make a positive difference. There are several legislative committees associated with different operational aspects of Government. These committees are made up with the intent of reviewing, researching, making recommendations and providing direction on government programs. They consist of representatives from elected members of the Assembly of all political parties. A part of my legislative responsibilities in the Assembly is being a member on the Standing Committee on Public Accounts. As such, I thought I would offer an insight into the work of this important committee. The Standing Committee on Public Accounts is the audit committee for the Legislative Assembly. Its primary responsibility is to scrutinize the Government of Saskatchewanâ€™s fiscal management, administration, and handling of public assets, and to review the Provincial Auditorâ€™s Reports. In carrying out its role, the Standing Committee on Public Accounts focuses on the efficiency with which the government administers its programs. It does not concern itself with the appropriateness of government policy. This â€œnon-policyâ€? review fosters the development of a non-partisan approach within the committee in which to address problems and seek solutions. The Standing
Committee Public Accounts is one of the provinceâ€™s oldest committees. It can trace its history to 1888, when the Assembly of the Northwest Territories first created a public accounts committee. For each fiscal year ending on March 31st, Public Accounts contains Summary Financial Statements which provide an accounting of the financial affairs and resources of the Government, as well as an overview of the Governmentâ€™s performance. This includes information on its assets, liabilities, net debt and accumulated surplus (deficit). This information is then used to evaluate the Governmentâ€™s ability to meet its financial commitments, and assess the ability to provide future services, such as health, education, social assistance, economic growth, infrastructure, environment, and public safety in a responsible and acceptable process. The financial statements demonstrate the accountability of the resources that are provided to the Government and those used by the Government by showing results for the current year, prior year, and budgeted revenues and expenses. The information contained in Public Accounts and the Provincial Budget is used by bond agencies who assign the provinceâ€™s credit rating. One such agency, Moodyâ€™s Investors Service, has recently reaffirmed a triple-A credit rating score for Saskatchewan, the highest possible rating. In reviewing Provincial Auditorâ€™s Reports, the work of the Public Accounts Committee is aimed at understanding, assessing and correcting the inadequacies identified in those reports. Once the Standing Committee on Public Accounts has reviewed the Public Accounts or the Reports of the Provincial Auditor, it reports its observations, opinions and recommendations to the Legislative Assembly. As always, if you have feedback or require assistance with Government of Saskatchewan programs or services, please contact the Moose Jaw North Constituency Office at 326 B High Street West, by phone at 306-692-8884, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fire Prevention Week: Look, Listen, Learn: Fire can happen anywhere Sasha-Gay Lobban
The Moose Jaw Fire Department is encouraging everyone in the community to Look. Listen. Learn as they increase awareness about the dangers of fire and increasing fire prevention for Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13. The Fire Department hosted an open house at the South Hill Fire Hall with over 100 students and members of the community attending to learn more about fire prevention. People got an opportunity to receive guided tours of the fire trucks, watch fire safety videos and see firemen in their gears as they receive a wealth of information on how to prevent fires. Fire Prevention Week highlights three steps people can take to quickly and safely escape a fire: - Look for places fire could start - Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm - Learn two ways out of every room “Working in the fire service for many years, we know that people often make choices in fire situations that jeopardize their safety or even cost them their lives,” said Cathie Bassett, Public Education Officer with the MJFD. “We
Chief Montgomery and his team served up hot dogs and refreshment at the open-house.
need to do a better job of teaching people about the potentially life-saving difference escape planning and practice can make and motivating them to action,” Bassett said. She further explained this year’s theme. “Basically, what we’re asking people to do through our theme is to LOOK for fire hazards in the home. That can be anything from a blocked exit to just being extra careful while cooking; look for those hazards before the fire starts. We also want people to LISTEN for their smoke alarms, ensuring that they are working, and they are not too old. Fire alarms should be replaced every 10 years; check smoke alarms every month, as well as checking your Carbon Monoxide alarms, especially because we’re going into winter. We want to make sure people are checking both of those to ensure they are working properly. We also want persons to LEARN their escape plans. Everyone should go throughout their house, ensure there are two ways out of a room; that should be a window and door. Everyone in the family should also know how to escape out of their homes. Persons should make an escape plan with their family; have a meeting place outside where everyone knows where it is and subsequently call 911. My advice to families is to practice these escape plans in the day and at night so everyone can become good at it.” Fire Chief for the City of Moose Jaw, Rod Montgomery says this week’s main goal is education, especially directed toward younger children. “This week is really about bringing more awareness to the community. This openhouse today gives people an opportunity to see what we do here and to see what their tax dollars provide for them, but this is also about education. Education is our main focus this week. The theme, Look, Listen, Learn is about making sure your smoke alarms work and that people
The Fire Department gave students a guided tour of fire trucks, explaining equipment and gear, along with an exciting visit from Sparky the mascot. know the dangers of fire. Certainly, our target audience are younger children to ensure they learn about safety tips and to reflect on the dangers of fire,” said Chief Montgomery. He noted that cooking fires is the cause to a lot of fires they attend to in the community, so he is appealing to people to be extra cautious and aware. “Cooking fires is a big thing so we want people to just be aware, have lids to cover pots and pans while you’re cooking etc. but one of the most important things to ensure that’s working properly is smoke alarms. Safety is a shared responsibility and certainly, the most important person responsible for your safety is yourself. So, make sure that your surroundings are equipped with smoke alarms because early detection is the key in fire prevention.”
Parkbeg community rallies for fowl supper By Ron Walter for Moose Jaw Express
It had rained a little and the door on the Parkbeg Hall jammed. “It’s been like that ever since I can remember,” said Carl Winkler, a former resident returning for the annual fowl supper. The Parkbeg fowl supper, celebrating thanks for another harvest, has been around for as long as people can remember. At last year’s supper some organizers indicated that might be the last supper because they were too short of volunteers.
Warming the food However, the community pulled together, again recruiting some former residents to help with the 2018 supper. While the organizers made last minute preparations, guests visited upstairs. The visiting continued as guests waited for the second and third sittings. One guest remarked that the chance to visit is one reason for coming to the supper. For guests who find the basement stairs too steep, organizers had some tables set up upstairs. When the supper was over Vivian Barber, of one the organizers, talked about next year’s fowl supper.
Spud check “You’re going to have one?” asked someone. “I’m pretty sure,” replied Barber. For diners who missed the Parkbeg supper, there are still many options to satisfy the craving for turkey, homemade pies and lots of social visiting. Some of the coming suppers include: Moose Jaw Eagles Club, Oct. 21, from 4 to 6 p.m.; Trinity United Church in Moose Jaw, Oct. 21 with sittings at 5 and 6 p.m.; Rowletta, Oct. 21 at the Civic
Mixing slaw Centre from 4 to 7 p.m.; Central Butte, Oct. 28 from 5 to 7 p.m.; and Mortlach, Nov. 4 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express
Vancouver company extracts valuable mineral from wastewater in oil production As the world demand for electric batteries, particularly for vehicles, increases, demand will surge for the mineral lithium. Lithium is a key component of batteries for electronic products. A Goldman Sachs study estimates supply of lithium will be 27 per cent less than demand in seven years. Lithium prices should be strong and lithium exploration will surge. Current lithium production comes from two sources: mining of salt flats and evaporation of the salts or from hard rock mines. Mining salt flats disturbs the environment while expensive hard rock mines take a long time to permit and build. Enter MGX Minerals of Vancouver with a less expensive technology that converts wastewater into clean water while extracting lithium and other minerals from the water. The company’s PurLucid process extracts lithium from wastewater produced by the oil industry in one day. As well as lithium, the process extracts calcium, boron, salt, potassium, magnesium and sulphur. The North American oil industry produces 80 million to 100 million barrels of briny water a day. To date, MGX has two million acres of oil patch
signed in for the process with 1.7 million in Alberta and some in Utah. The patent is pending for the successfully tested PertoLithium process. The first 750 barrel per day commercial plant is in development. MGX has two other divisions. The Zinc/NYX division acquired last year, uses a zinc-air fuel cell for storage of energy from wind power and solar energy systems. A 20-kilowatt system is under development in this highly competitive field. Other sectors involve lithium brine property in Utah, an advanced magnesium mine property in B.C., an interest in an Ontario hard rock lithium property and silica mine properties in B.C. At 57 cents a share with a year high of $1.96 and a low of 49.5 cents, this stock is volatile. The technology needs profitable commercial production to prove the process for investors. Directors currently own 12.8 per cent of the 125 million shares. Two red flags: management fees for the first nine months of the company year were $3.4 million compared with $960,000 in the previous period. Promotion and advertising costs for the first nine months of
the year were $1.96 million compared with $429,000 last year. MGX is an interesting company in a field with tremendous profit potential but several factors such as high promotion costs and management fees make the company questionable even as a speculative investment. The five-year-old company has lost $36.3 million pursuing the plans. Just over half that loss was in the last year as facilities ramp up. The only viable way to raise more money is placement of shares to investors. Current investors’ stake is diluted every time new shares are sold. That explains the $1.96 million promotion and advertising expense to try and keep the share price up. But is it the best use of investors’ money? This is a company to watch closely. 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 email@example.com
Ag Month –– tell your story of agriculture to consumers AGRIMART
EXPRESS October has been declared agriculture month in Saskatchewan with this year’s celebration emphasizing our story of food. Everyone involved in agriculture is encouraged to share the story of food through friends, social media and blogs. The object of telling the story of food is to build a better understanding of how and where food comes from. Several non-profit groups help to build public trust in agriculture. Agriculture More Than Ever features online blogs by agricultural producers from across Canada including information on issues from use of pesticides, genetically-modified organisms, ideas on how to
treat controversial topics and links on social media like Instagram. Agriculture in the Classroom offers learning materials for elementary school children. This October features a kit showing what plants and animals make it to your lunch.

A recent survey by the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity indicates a large portion of consumers have concerns with current farm practices. The cross-Canada survey found 51 per cent worry about hormones in farm animals; 46 per cent are concerned about drug residues in meat products; 42 per cent are worried about genetically engineered crops; and 48 per cent have issues with pesticide use.

Eden Care opens three new homes for Valley View residents Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
One of the major questions to come out of the Valley View Centre closure announcement in 2012 was just where exactly the 200-plus residents of the 24-hour personal care facility were going to go? That question was partially answered on Oct. 4, as a grand opening was held for three new group homes being run by Eden Care Communities of Regina. The three houses will be home to 14 people with intellectual disabilities, all from Valley View Centre, and will offer “person-directed care, to help the residents live their lives and give their lives purpose,” according to Eden Care CEO Alan Stephen.
“...it gives you that flexibility and normality of life while giving them the support they need.” -General Manager Jordan Varey
“If you go through what we did years ago in health and social services, back in those days having that sort of institution, that larger environment care was deemed to be the way to the day,” Stephen said. “We now know through evidence and communication that the smaller homes are better. “This is their home and we’re working in their home. It’s smaller and more intimate, they get to know each other and the community get to know them and I think that’s really important.”
Eden Care Communities resident Rodney Schearwood cuts the ribbon for the grand opening of one of three group homes with a bit of help from Eden Care director of integrated services Ryan Bahan, as Mayor Fraser Tolmie, Moose Jaw North MLA Warren Michelson, Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence , and Eden Care Communities CEO Alan Stephen look on. Eden Care Moose Jaw general manager Jordan Varey has been involved in the Valley View transition since the beginning with various organizations and is especially impressed with what he’s seen when it comes to the smaller group home model. “There’s a difference being in a small home setting, where you can all hop into a van and go out for supper
and it doesn’t have to be a planned event, you just go out and do it, just like a regular house,” he said. “That’s the big difference, it gives you that flexibility and normality of life while giving them the support they need.” Wakamow Valley MLA Greg Lawrence was among the dignitaries who spoke at the grand opening and mentioned running into a group of residents from a local assisted-living home during a recent bowling excursion. That kind of activity is exactly what Eden Care aims to promote and achieve. “It’s just one of those simple pleasures of life and a chance to be a part of the community,” Varey said. One of the most impressive parts of the transition in Varey’s eyes is how adaptable the former Valley View residents have been – after living in an institutional setting for so long, the concern was how some of the longer-term residents would react to such a major change in their living situation. “The people we support have impressed me at every turn with how adaptable they are and how they’ve just embraced some new freedoms and we’ve seen them do things people thought they’d never do... the home environment is really key, I think,” Varey said. The government of Saskatchewan is providing $1.5 million to support the three homes, which will provide group home support and day programming for 14 people as well as enhanced supports for three people. A total of 48 people currently reside at Valley View Centre, which is slated to close in December 2019.

In spite of snow, wet weather harvest grinds on and on By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express
Harvest slowly progressed in Saskatchewan during a week that saw rain and snow preEXPRESS vent the operation in much of the province. By Oct. 8, 78 per cent was in the bin down from 84 per cent in the five year average, but well behind the 94 per cent completion rate last year. Heavy snowfall stalled harvest in the northwest with only 44 per cent combined. Farmers with grain dryers are taking off tough grain and drying it, creating a run on propane supplies. Just under two-thirds of the crop is off in the east-central region and the northeast. Seventy per cent is done in the west-central region. Ninety per cent of harvest is over in the southeast and southwest. Some grains have lots of acreage left to do, with 35 per cent of spring wheat, 39 per cent of canola and 30 per cent of oats left in the field. Wet weather continues to improve topsoil moisture and offer a better start to next year’s crops. Four per cent of cropland is rated surplus moisture with two-thirds adequate, 29 per cent short and nine per cent very short. Cattle producers indicate adequate hay straw and feed but shortages exist in some southern and central areas.

What, if anything, will this $60,000 re-branding of Moose Jaw accomplish?
by Ron Walter
Moose Jaw City Council has decided to partner on $60,000 to re-brand the city and its image. The tab will be shared by the taxpayers, Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Moose Jaw. Branding is a term describing the practice of updating/changing the image or identity of a business, organization or com-
munity. Moose Jaw had a brand image as the Friendly City for generations. In the 1970s, the council and chamber decided to re-brand and make Moose Jaw known as the Band City by capitalizing on the Kinsmen International Band Festival. Once the festival converted into a music program without the Victoria Day weekend band parade and band concerts, that brand slipped away into the night. In the 1970s and 1980s, downtown Moose Jaw successfully branded itself as a tourist attraction with old buildings. The Downtown Business Improvement District developed the old globe lamp posts, the flower pots on the median, Main street trees, garbage bins and benches as well as running Sidewalk Days. Benefits from the Business Improvement District pretty well ended when Coun. Brian Swanson convinced
council to reduce the $225,000 a year funding to $18,000. Some of that funding had been matched by senior government. So much for that re-branding. Around that time, led by Coun. Glenda James, council held public meetings that were supposed to lead to some sort of consensus on what Moose Jaw wants to be when it grows up. Much of our tourism base, the murals and downtown sights were re-inforced by those sessions. In 2009, most Moose Jaw residents were surprised when council announced a new brand — Surprisingly Unexpected. Except for some visitors that brand never caught on fire. Now the city, chamber and Tourism Moose Jaw are selling another re-branding plan. To paraphrase the mayor’s words, it will give us our identity. Re-branding works well under the right conditions: a small enough organization to persuade a majority of members (employees, volunteers, residents) to agree is required along with spending money to make the brand known and accepted. Examples of successful re-branding are the communities of Ogema in Saskatchewan and Rosebud, Alberta. Ogema leadership convinced residents the town needed grass roots change or the community would gradually die. The leadership was successful. Rosebud drew on its proximity to Calgary to develop a theatre, dinner theatre and arts school. Leaders succeeded.
Wellness in the workplace can be good for both waistlines and bottom lines
by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor
Years ago, before I was a chiropractor, I worked quality control in a mineral factory. The factory entrance was near a coffee shop, and it was more often than not that the boss would bring us employees a dozen donuts. Now I was never a smoker, but the coffee and donuts at break time became my addiction. I think those were the years that I was at my heaviest in weight and also my least active. I didn’t really know any better, as I was a young and dumb 20-something. Sometimes, especially when we are young, we need others to look out for us. Back in the 1980’s, my place of work did not necessarily watch out for my best interests. Donuts and a smoke break were the only benefits we seemed to have. Today, I would suspect boxes of donuts to be not as visible in the workplace, and with smokers being banished to the frigid designated smoking area 2 miles from the entrance to any building, there seems to be a trend towards caring about the general well-being of the worker, with Workplace Wellness Programs (WWPs) becoming more and more popular. By 2015, it was estimated that 80 percent of businesses in the United States, with over 1,000 employees, offered some type of wellness enhancing program, or other health incentive, to their workers.
Some the of common programs include gym memberships (or even having a gym on-site for employees), weight-loss challenges and yoga classes. In many cases, donuts and muffins have been replaced by fresh fruit and vegetables as well as other healthy snacks. Some businesses have gone so far as to offer help for employees who suffer from addiction, depression and anxiety. While these programs can prove costly to the employer, the benefits reaped can far outweigh those inputs. Research has shown that businesses who show high usage of these wellness programs have higher performance ratings, higher job satisfaction, higher intention to stay, and lower turnover. All of these outcomes are shown to enhance a business’ bottom line. The next time your boss brings in a box of apple fritters or a bag of homemade cookies, bring up the idea of her or him paying for a gym membership instead. For those employers who sense a lack of motivation, afternoon sluggishness, and high absenteeism, maybe it’s time to budget for a wellness program and committee. While you don’t have to go all out and get gym memberships and buy Lululemon’s for every employee, just start by having healthy snacks available at break times. It might just show to your employees that you care.
SIRLOIN BUTT ROASTS
The consultant visiting Moose Jaw about the latest re-branding effort discussed a Maritime car dealer who branded his operation as most huggable with awesome success. Branding, in that case, was possible because the owner had control. Employees had to buy in or get out. Re-branding efforts in communities, particularly ones as large as Moose Jaw, have no such control over thought, making the whole effort near impossible, if not impossible. An exception to that is the I Love Regina campaign by Regina Mayor Pat Fiacco. And that changed most residents’ image of their city. Fiacco was an exceptional leader, unlike many other elected leaders. It is this scribbler’s personal opinion that Moose Jaw would get more bang for $60,000 by holding a Main Street bonfire of cash bills. That event would attract national and international news attention/exposure worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. The result: thousands of people would get interested in Moose Jaw as a place to visit or live. Most would be upset when discovering Moose Jaw really doesn’t have excess cash to burn. The current re-branding effort is a desperate response to the comment: “We have to plan something to show voters we are doing something.” Ron Walter can be reached at email@example.com

DOWN ON THE
I thought that I would be happy when Canada’s cannabis laws were changed, making both medical and recreational marijuana legal in our country, but I have a few reservations. I have been a decriminalization advocate for over four decades by Dale “bushy” Bush and have been a medical supporter for almost as long, but I believe the new laws are not only an understandable money grab but also an example of over legislation and micromanagement. With the new legislation there are now over 40 different ways to break Canada’s cannabis laws, which can result in being fined or jailed, compared to eight ways to be fined or jailed when marijuana was illegal. The laws seem to be confusing to the police, who are in a legal, jurisdictional and funding haze, and to the recreational user, who will just be in a smoky haze. I am sure that the legal challenges will happen meaning the lawyers will also get their share of the “pot,” and I am sure that our wise lawmakers will soon realize how silly many of the new ways to break the law are. Canada will learn along with the rest of the world, which is also experiencing the acceptance of medical and recreational benefits of cannabis.
As the rest of the world is changing along with Canada, there seems to be three basic attitudes towards marijuana — legal, decriminalized and, of course, illegal. There is another sub-attitude that cannabis is illegal, but not enforced in about 20 per cent of the world, including the Netherlands, which has recently legalized medicinal use. Recreational use is illegal but there are many coffee shops where the use and sale are accepted. These shops all pay their taxes and that makes it easy for “enforcement.” In other words, pay your taxes, the law will look the other way, and all is well. There are some countries that have tried to make their marijuana laws as confusing as Canada’s, such as Germany where it is legal for medicinal cannabis but illegal for recreational marijuana. That may not sound strange but possession of pot is illegal but consumption of cannabis for recreation is not. Talk about a smokers haze! Cannabis is legal in Spain but do not get caught smoking it in public or you will be fined 300 euros. If you want to grow pot in Spain, you must join one of the over 800 grow clubs (which are of course licen$ed). There are many countries where marijuana is illegal except for religious reasons, including Jamaica where recreational cannabis is decriminalized but is totally legal for Rastafarians…yah mon erting be awrie. Recreational use of marijuana is gaining acceptance and I am encouraged by the great changes regards medical marijuana.
The legalization of medical marijuana in Canada actually occurred in 2012. Since then, the perception of cannabis as a medicine has changed from one of shamanism and folklore to one of medical and pharmaceutical acceptance. The governments (all three levels) have greedily changed their attitudes to cannabis as the medical marijuana dispensaries have paid their “high” taxes, licence fees, and any number of other “administration costs” they can invent. There are paybacks to those taxes and fees and that is not only the acceptance of a “new” medicine, but the new funding for research. Researchers seem to be constantly surprised by their discoveries and are finding more benefits from this natural herb. We must not forget what the additional taxes will mean for other expenditures such as infrastructure and education, and I hope we all gain from these new laws. The new laws will generate “high” taxes which will go in to the government’s “pot,” and I am sure the sticky laws will “weed” themselves out. I am confident our hopes will not go up in smoke.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Music of Hank Williams Sr. coming to city stage
Joyce Walter For Moose Jaw Express
Hank Williams Sr. had sung his songs and passed away in 1953, long before my personal preference in music was established. But with the radio as a source of contact between our home and the world, and a means of hearing music before television was in every home in our rural community, I had a song in my mind about some kind of soup and crawfish pie and file’ gumbo. I had heard it on the radio and even as a pre-schooler who could only play Jingle Bells on the Zylephone, the medoly stuck even if the words made no sense. It wasn’t until many years later that the song, Jambalaya, was identified for me with the late Hank Williams Sr., he of such other hits as Hey Good Lookin’ and Cold Cold Heart — songs whose lyrics were frequently warbled by girlfriends thinking we might be hired as a backup trio for
a local star. The brilliance of the music written and sung by Williams Sr. dawned on me much later and it is no surprise that his life and music are still drawing avid fans to concert stages across North America. One of the most talented and knowledgeable Hank Williams Sr. tribute artists is Jason Petty of Nashville who for the past 22 years has brought Hank Williams alive on those many stages. Petty will be in Moose Jaw Wednesday, Oct. 24 at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre with his Hank Williams — The Lonesome Tour. This is one of seven or more shows he has written and produced on the history of country music. While working at Opryland, he performed a 30 second impression of Hank Williams’ Your’ Cheatin’ Heart, a performance heard by the producer of the off Broadway musical, Lost Highway. A year later he was offered the opportunity to play Hank Williams in the musical — without auditioning. “Life’s funny that way,” he said in a telephone interview, noting life often leads one down a different path than the one envisioned.
Billy Walker, a long-time member of the Grand Ole Opry, heard Petty play Hank Williams and told him he should be doing it for a living. And he has done just that. He says Hank Williams Sr. paid for his house, his car and will pay for his children’s education. “I am grateful to Hank Williams.” Petty believes the music of Hank Williams has endured because it is simple music that is believable and tells stories of the everyday person. Williams could identify with the problems of ordinary people because he had the same problems and some of the same demons. While getting to know some friends and colleagues of Williams, he learned that Hank Williams could feel alone in a crowd of friends. “There was a hole in his soul that he couldn’t fill. And stardom made it worse.” His music was then and is still now, singable, even for a young Petty whose father got him singing Your Cheatin’ Heart. Petty’s first concerts in Canada were at the Walters’ Family Dinner Theatre in Ontario. about 10 years ago. That led to an association with Rocklands Talent and some short tours in Ontario. “They took off like gangbusters,” he said, proving that “Hank’s music has staying power.” On this tour he will be featured in 13 concerts starting in Winnipeg on Oct. 21 and concluding Nov. 8 in Courtenay, B.C. When he sings Jambalaya in Moose Jaw, there will be at least one audience member singing along — and wondering where to get crawfish pie.

Cosmo Seniors’ trade and craft show finds young entrepreneurs By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express
David Priebe was quite happy with his family’s table at the annual Cosmo Seniors’ Centre trade and craft show. “I brought five birdhouses and three bird feeders,” he said. “I’ve only got two left.” His grandfather taught the 11-year-old to make the birdhouses and bird feeders. “He still helps me.” Asked what he will do with his profits, David replied quickly: “I think I’ll save it. I’ve been spending too much lately.” He was part of a family table. His sister Bethany sold her crafts — lip balm Preserves for winter and candles made from half an acorn. The candles floated on water, making them safer to use. She had crafts at the show last year. Their younger sister Cassandra also helped. Mom supervised. The show had a variety of crafts, food, knitted and sewed crafts and personal care items. The pie, especially the lemon meringue, at the concession was popular.

Learning the ABC’s of dementia and how to provide support presentation at Seniors’ Trade Show Sasha-Gay Lobban Seniors were able to participate in a full day of activities at Timothy Eaton Gardens on Monday, October 1, starting off with a pancake breakfast to a full room of guests who got to catch up with their friends while having a great meal. Following the pancake breakfast was the Seniors’ Trade Show and a day of presentations on various topics that benefit seniors. One of those presentations was the ABC’s of Dementia which also saw a full turn out from seniors and their families. Abby Wolfe, public awareness coordinator for the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, led the presentation as she discussed dementia, the signs to look out for and how families and friends can provide support. “We always encourage everyone to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Specifically, because we know that in our province, there’s over 19,000 people living with dementia, so that means there are even more people affected by it in terms of trying to support someone living with dementia, a friend or family member. Therefore, helping everybody to learn about it and how they can be more supportive, and inclusive and able to respond to people affected by dementia in person centered is important to us. “I think it’s something important for businesses, families, employees and anyone who might have an interaction with someone who suffers from dementia throughout their day, to learn more about it. That’s the only way that

Abby Wolfe they can be more supportive and responsive to them.” Wolfe also clarified some misconceptions surrounding dementia. “I think the most important thing that people need to know is that it doesn’t just affect older people and not everyone over the age of 65 automatically develops dementia and not everyone that has dementia is older. People can be in their 40s and 50s and develop dementia. So, getting rid of that misconception that it only affects older
people is probably the most important thing. “Another misconception is that it only affects memory loss. There are actually many different changes; changes in abilities, behavior and communication that can occur in addition to memory loss. So, not just assuming that dementia is only memory loss is really important too. Those are some of the biggest misconceptions out there about dementia.” She says there are help centers across the province where people can access more information and resources on dementia. “We have resource centers located in different areas of the province where we have offices with Alzheimer Society staff members. There is not a resource center in Moose Jaw, but we do offer information and support through our dementia help line, toll free number, 1-877949-4141 and we also have a variety of different support groups available that offer peer support. So, if people are looking for that kind of information, they can access that as well.” Wolfe added that education and support provided by the Alzheimer’s Society is free of cost. “Something else that I think is important for people to know is that the Alzheimer Society provides information, education, and support free of charge. Don’t be afraid to connect with us if you have a question. We can offer information on a variety of topics; like types of dementia and concerns that people living with dementia might have and we do that on an individualized basis, free of charge.”

Pringle looking to raise funds, awareness by Randy Palmer for Moose Jaw Express
Conducting a newspaper interview in public with Moose Jaw’s Cole Pringle can be a bit of a difficult task. Not because Pringle isn’t an engaging subject – far from it, in fact – but the number of people who come up to introduce themselves and offer support for his cause makes for a steady stream of interruptions. But when it comes to the reason Pringle is becoming such a burgeoning celebrity, you can bet it’s all fine and well no matter how many people he says ‘hi’ to. Pringle is battling a disease known as spinal muscular atrophy, a rare neuromuscular disorder that causes progressive muscle wasting and impairs muscular control, eventually affecting the lungs and inhibiting unassisted breathing. Most children born with the disease die before the age of two. Pringle was diagnosed with an intermediate form of the disease as a baby and has lived with its progressive effects well into adulthood. Now 31, he uses an electric wheelchair for mobility, living a full life and working for the government of Saskatchewan in Regina. “The change is slow and gradual,” Pringle said of his physical mobility with SMA. “If you compared me to where I was 10 years ago, you’d see a lot of changes when it comes to my mobility and energy levels, things like that. Day to day, there’s no real changes but thinking to back to where I was it’s a huge change. But I’m quite fortunate since it can be a lot worse for some people.” That’s one of the reasons Pringle was back home in Moose Jaw on Sept. 30 for a special fundraising dinner at the Lynbrook Golf Club’s Ortley’s Lounge and Grille. He’s trying to raise awareness of a newly developed medication known as Spinraza, which entered the market in late 2016 and was approved for use in Canada in 2017. The drug – developed and marketed by pharma-giant Biogen – outright halts progression of SMA and in cases like Pringle’s can actually create a reversal of symptoms. There’s a catch, though. One that is, quite frankly, almost unbelievable. “It’s obscenely expensive,” Pringle said. “I need three doses a year for my entire life and every injection is $120,000. So that’s $360,000 a year for the rest of my life for this drug, and naturally, that’s not sustainable.”
Wayne Pringle (left), Karen Pringle (right) and Cole Pringle pause for a photo with Lynbrook Golf Club fundraiser organizer Lynn Perras-Selensky. The drug isn’t covered by any drug subsidy programs in the Canadian health care system, meaning that the life-saving injections – at that cost of a third of a million dollars a year – have to be fully paid for by patients. “So we’re trying to see what the options are in other countries, trying to raise money to get one or two injections and that can kind of delay the progression for awhile until it is covered,” Pringle explained. “That’s the idea behind this; whether I get the injection here or go somewhere else for it, we’re just trying to cover the costs.” To that end, Pringle has been busy over the last couple of months.
He’s conducted television interviews for CTV and CBC as well as with local and Regina-based radio aiming to draw attention to his situation and the difficult access to the medication he and others with the disease in Canada are experiencing. He’s also set up a GoFundMe page – ca.gofundme.com/a-future-for-cole – which had raised $24,000 as of Oct. 1. That, on top of the fundraisers like the fall supper at the Lynbrook, is slowly chipping away at the monstrous cost. “We’re at about $35,000 and it’s been going on for a little over a month and I’m pretty happy with the support,” Pringle said. “We just have to keep doing things like this and doing what we can to raise awareness and keep the pressure on the government to do the right thing and get it covered for everyone.” Cole’s mom Karen and dad Wayne Pringle have been alongside their son every step of the way and are also working to raise awareness as much as possible. A longtime member of the Lynbrook Golf Club, Wayne was almost overwhelmed by the amount of support he saw at the dinner, which brought in more than 100 people and raised well over $5,000 in ticket sales and donations. “The beautiful thing about this is it was all initiated by (Ortley’s owner) Lynn (Perras-Selensky), a lot of volunteers working the door, gifts for the door prizes, that was all volunteers who stepped up to help,” said Wayne. “I almost shed a tear when I think about this and all the support, we even had people coming up and giving us donations because they couldn’t be here tonight. It’s really heartwarming to see the generosity of the people in this town and all of Saskatchewan.” Cole himself has seen support even outside of scheduled fundraisers. “After I was on TV in Regina, I was just going down the street and someone would come up and say ‘hey I saw you on the news last night’ and just give me $20. That’s unbelievable that people are willing to do that,” he said. “I think it also sends a message that people all agree that this is something that needs support. Everybody wants this to happen, they’re willing to help out and I hope people contact the government and make it known that they want this to happen.”

The harvest of pumpkin patches serves two special occasions in the autumn of the year: Thanksgiving and Halloween. For the Thanksgiving weekend, pumpkin was used for pies and other desserts, and at Halloween, the shells become the artistic or sometimes ugly jack ‘o lanterns that lead the way up the path for trick and treaters. This week’s recipes offer some ideas for putting the pumpkin crop to tasty use. ••• Pumpkin Dessert Base: 1/2 cup butter, melted 2 1/4 cups crushed gingersnaps 1/3 cup sugar First layer: 2 eggs, beaten 3/4 cup sugar 8 oz. cream cheese Second layer: 2 cups mashed pumpkin 3 egg yolks 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup milk 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. mace
1/2 tsp. ginger 1 envelope unflavoured gelatin 1/4 cup cold water 3 egg whites 1/4 cup sugar For the base, mix melted butter, gingersnaps and sugar together. Press into a 9x11 inch pan. For the first layer, mix beaten eggs, sugar and cream cheese well and pour over crust. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. Remove from oven and cool.

Timothy Eaton seniors facilities feeling financial crunch Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express
The Timothy Eaton Activity Centre and Cafe offer a lot of services and activities for seniors in the community. The Moose Jaw & District Senior Citizens Association Inc. (MJDSCA), which run the facilities, want to keep providing those services for years to come, but the clock is ticking on their ability to stay open. “The Moose Jaw & District Seniors Association probably, right now, have two years worth of money that they have left to operate,” said Peter Clinkard, a board member with the MJDSCA. “After that time, unless somebody leaves us some money in a will, we probably will have to close. That means there will be no restaurant for the people that live upstairs to come to plus anyone else who wants to eat there. There will be a lot of seniors who won’t be able to play cards or other activities that go on at the Timothy Eaton Centre.” Moose Jaw Housing Authority operates the Timothy Eaton Gardens senior housing which has 26 units in the building. The rest of the facilities on the main floor and the basement are run separately by the Moose Jaw & District Seniors Association. The MJDSCA was formed in 1989 by six seniors. The City of Moose Jaw rented the main floor and basement of the Eaton’s building to the MJDSCA and Moose Jaw Housing took the top two floors for seniors housing. The XYZ (Extra Years of Zest) Society was created in 1973 and they merged with the MJDSCA. With raffles, fundraising, donations, grants and help from the City the centre opened its doors. “We used to get a $50,000 provincial grant, but we stopped getting that money quite a few years ago,” said Lori Friars, coordinator for the Moose Jaw & District Senior Citizens Association. “When that funding was cut we still had quite a bit of money in the bank. That helped us keep going when we ran a deficit. Now if you look at our annual deficit, it’s around $50,000, so that tells us just how important that money

Matthew Gourlie photograph was.” The MJDSCA received an unexpected windfall that is helping keep it solvent, but Clinkard knows that they can’t wait for funding to come out of nowhere to keep them operating. “I see the books and I see where we’re going and it’s not good,” Clinkard said. “One of the founders of the Moose Jaw & District Seniors Association actually gave us a great insurance policy of $150,000. Which they cashed. They’ve been using that money to run the centre. That’s why I’m saying if someone else doesn’t die and leave us money or we don’t get some other funding; we’re gone.” There is no shortage of activities that take place at the activity centre. The lower floor is the “sports level” that features an indoor walking track, workout equipment, pickleball courts, four pool tables and shuffleboard. Upstairs is the large XYZ Auditorium that is available for banquets, dances and hall rentals, plus the small hall that is used as a card room. The Timothy Eaton Cafe serves breakfast and lunch. There was a seniors’ driving refresher that drew 50 people this past week in the XYZ Auditorium and there were sign up sheets for anything from a Thai Chi class to art classes and a bake sale.
An Evening in Concert with... Murray Mclauchlan
by Sasha-Gay Lobban - Murray McLauchlan, one of Canada’s most highly regarded singer/songwriters, will be visiting Moose Jaw for an engaging evening in concert at the Mae Wilson Theatre on Tuesday, October 23 at 7:30pm. Over a 45-year career, McLauchlan has released 19 albums and been awarded 11 Junos. His songs Farmer’s Song, Down by the Henry Moore, Whispering Rain and Sweeping the Spotlight Away are now Murray McLauchlan (Kevin Kelly— considered Canadian standards. True North photo) McLauchlan is also a painter, an author, most popular songs. “It is a cabaret kind an actor, a radio host.

Having new seniors homes being built have caused membership to take a hit and the lack of free parking around the facility hasn’t helped. Friar feels that the changing seniors’ landscape is also a factor. People are retiring later and while the MJDSCA is for people 50-and-older, there is a perception that the facilities are for older seniors. The cafe used to generate money as well, but even that has dried up in recent years. Food and staffing costs continue to go up, but the cafe tries to keep their prices down because they knew that their clientele are largely on fixed incomes. “We used to have a special meal on Wednesdays and people would be lined up to the door. That never happens anymore,” Friars said. Friars said they have more than 400 members, but an increase in members alone won’t drastically change their financial outlook. The MJDSCA believe they still fill a big niche in the community and they see seniors who still live in their homes come in every day for a social connection and the services that the MJDSCA provide. “Seniors are an important commodity in
the city. We have a lot of volunteers that help us to defray some costs because otherwise, if we had to pay for everything, we would probably be out of business in 18 months,” Clinkard said. “I don’t think people know enough about what this centre does for the city. It’s the same with the Cosmo. They do a great job too.” The MJDSCA receive funding from a Sask. Lotteries grant that is administered and distributed by the City of Moose Jaw to both seniors facilities: the MJDSCAand the Cosmo Senior Citizen’s Centre. That funding changes slightly year-to-year but was approximately $17,000 a year ago. The MJDSCA pays the city $1 a year in rent, but is responsible for utilities, maintenance and repairs. The cost to run the centre and pay the bills in the building is approximately $6,000 per month. Clinkard said that even if they doubled their membership they wouldn’t make up the funding gap. “This is the dilemma that I’m in: we come up with fundraising events, we have fowl suppers, we have chicken and rib dinners, we have suppers, we have dances there once a month. We try to raise funds,” Clinkard said. “I don’t know what’s going to make a drastic difference. I don’t know what’s going to change it.” Memberships are $60/year and increase to $80 for a membership that includes the walking track and fitness facilities. Some of the programs and classes that are offered cost $2 a day. “There is a charge, but again, no matter what you do it does not cover the costs to run the building,” Clinkard said. “(We need) some kind of funding -- by the province, by the federal government. We apply for grants. We had some grants and that is something that kept us going.”

15 Wing kicks off annual workplace charity campaign Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
If you see men and women dressed in military clothing manning check-out stalls at Superstore and Safeway next month, take note – it’s all part of one of the largest charitable organization drives in the country. Personnel from 15 Wing Moose Jaw kicked off their annual fundraising campaign on Oct. 5 in front of close to 100 students, support staff and dignitaries in the O.B. Philip complex atrium, with attendees receiving a rundown of how to donate and some of the activities they’ll be taking part in this year. “We’re members of the military and we’re always looking for ways to give back to the community every way we can and this is a way we can do that,” said campaign organizer Capt. Greg Donker. “It’s especially nice in that it focusses on the local aspect, as well as the national aspect, so it’s pretty awesome we can do this and help out the community.” The campaign is part of the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign, which sees different governmen-

tal branches all uniting to raise funds for charitable organizations. Locally, that includes the YMCA, Humane Society, Transition House and the United Way, which further distributes donations under its umbrella. The event – which runs until Nov. 30 – is aiming to raise around $40,000 after bringing in over $30,000 last year. Throughout Saskatchewan, the campaign brings in close to $500,000 annually.
Donker was quick to point out that those looking to donate to this 15 Wing cause can be both from the base itself, as well as the community. Civilians are more than welcome to make donations, which is part of why 15 Wing personnel will be taking part in their grocery bagging stint from Nov. 1-4. “Anyone can come on by and talk to us there and donate if they like; they can also contact us at the base or any of the other events in the community,” Donker said. 15 Wing is also holding a hockey pool and will be hosting a curling bonspiel; civilians are welcome to take part in both. Organizers made sure the kick-off itself was memorable, too: the event closed with a pie-in-the-face bidding war that saw four high-ranking officials – including 15 Wing commander Denis O’Reilly and deputy commander John Hall – ‘lose’ and endure the whipped cream mess. The battle raised more than $1000. Seeing the top brass at the base get right into things was something Donker hopes is a sign of things to come.

“We’d really like to see everyone at 15 Wing get involved, including civilians,” he said. “This is one of those things where every little bit helps, and if we can get the kind of support we’ve had in the past, we know it’ll be a successful campaign. Anyone looking to make a donation or for more information on events can call 15 Wing at 306-694-2222.

City Hall Council Notes Council considering new DFFH strategy
Discussion centres on plan to actively pursue entertainment options at Mosaic Place The Downtown Facility and Field House was back on the agenda at the most recent meeting of Moose Jaw City Council on Oct. 9. Moose Jaw city manager Jim Puffalt – who took over as DFFH manager when the board of directors was dissolved in August – presented a plan to change how concerts and other major shows are pursued for Mosaic Place, with the idea of increasing the number of higher-end acts at the arena. The plan includes a contingency fund to cover losses in case shows don’t sell at the level expected. “Since my time here, the community has expressed an interest in having concerts and events to be held back at Mosaic Place,” Puffalt said. “The Moose Jaw Chamber of Commerce has had some discussions over the summer and strategic planning, branding and tourism talked the importance of economic drivers for the community. “As council can imagine, there’s quite a different structure when it comes to concerts and events at an arena and I think this is a long-standing issue in the community and if we’re going to go through with it, the community needs to go in with their eyes wide open.” Puffalt’s plan includes a limit of $150,000 for shows directly pursued by Mosaic Place, with anything over that amount to go to executive committee for an in-camera session and discussion. The plan would also include a $100,000 fund to cover any losses the DFFH might experience from shows that don’t sell as well as planned. Reports on the success
Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express level of concerts would be grouped into a yearly report as opposed to a show-by-show basis. “If we report back to stakeholders after every show and say this one was successful or not, in some of my experience, the shows that were up to $150,000 made money and shows that were around $25,000 lost money,” Puffalt said. “So, we have to be very careful about what we go after but at the same time we have to be aggressive.” Coun. Scott McMann – who was part of the DFFH board until it’s dissolution – pointed out that the DFFH had always been pursuing events at Mosaic Place, but the size of the Moose Jaw market in western Canada was a drawback. “We didn’t turn any concerts down,” he said. “We looked at other venues and our activities weren’t a lot different than those. I just want to make sure people are aware the previous board wasn’t turning things down and from having spent a couple years on that board, I’m a little concerned about the word ‘aggressively’, I feel ‘prudent’ might more of a proper term.” Former DFFH board chair Coun. Brian Swanson went even further, outright condemning the idea of paying a premium for Mosaic Place events. “The board that was dissolved spent a great amount of time coming up to speed on concert production, and the idea that we weren’t interested in having concerts is just balderdash,” he said. “What we were interested in were concerts that wouldn’t lose money. “When I see the words ‘aggressively pursue’ and ‘pay a
premium’, those are euphemisms for overpay. Venues our size in Western Canada, the opportunities aren’t that great. But if you want to overpay for something, there will be people lining up at your door... It’s voodoo economics to think that the taxpayer should lose money on concerts and somehow that stimulates the economy.” Coun. Chris Warren had earlier suggested any decision on aggressive pursuit of events be tabled until the current governance situation with the DFFH was resolved – slated to happen in early November – and Mayor Fraser Tolmie made a motion as such. The plan was tabled. **** Mayor Tolmie’s notice of motion from the previous council meeting that all executive committee meetings be held in council chambers and be broadcast and recorded effective immediately was officially passed. The first executive committee meeting in council chambers took place that evening. Any in-camera discussions will take place in the adjacent Scoop Lewry room. **** The concept plan for development of the Westheath subdivision on South Hill was adopted after being tabled at the Aug. 30 meeting, although council approval will be needed to authorize any future subdivision expansion construction.

Governments come through for Buffalo Pound water plant
Canada, Saskatchewan govt’s announce more than $20 million in funding for water treatment plant Moose Jaw Express Staff
The ongoing and much-need improvements to the Buffalo Pound water treatment plant received a major boost during a special announcement on Oct. 9 in Regina. The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan revealed more than $20 million in federal-provincial funding had been allocated for upgrades to electrical systems at the plant. The work will involve replacing the plants electrical substation, improving the power supply and upgrading the raw water pumps to prevent future electrical failures.

Saskatchewan residents in the Moose Jaw and Regina area. The remaining estimated $12.1 million will be funded by the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation, which is jointly owned by the cities of Regina and Moose Jaw. “This is tremendous news for Moose Jaw residents and all Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant customers,” said Moose Jaw mayor Fraser Tolmie, who opened the Oct. 9 meeting of city council with the announcement. “The importance of a safe water supply can’t be over-stated, and we are grateful to the federal and provincial governments for their significant partnership stake in these crucial plant upgrades.” The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are each contributing up to $10,291,000 to this project through the New Building Canada Fund -- Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component -- National and Regional Projects. “These vital upgrades to the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant will ensure residents of Regina and Moose Jaw have an uninterrupted supply of high-quality drinking water for years to come,” said Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness. “Canada’s investment in this project underlines our commitment to protecting public health and our quality of life, all while bolstering economic growth and a strong middle class.”
October 24 is World Polio Day “We are achingly close to getting rid of polio-more than 99% of the way there. Finishing the job is a big challenge, but it is very doable if we keep up the effort.” –Bill Gates
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation matches every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication 2-to-1, up to $50 million a year. Rotary Clubs all across the world support the eradication of polio. The Rotary Club of Moose Jaw Wakamow and the Moose Jaw Rotary Club contribute funds each year to support this important cause. There are fewer polio cases today than ever before, but Rotary will not stop until the number is zero. We are “this close” to a polio free world. The goals are to immunize 400 million children against polio every year; to improve the surveillance and monitoring systems to diagnose new cases and detect the wild poliovirus; and to hire more than 150,000 health workers to go door to door to find every child. If polio is not eradicated, hundreds of thousands of children could be paralyzed. Global health care costs will rise dramatically, and many children’s quality of life will be drastically diminished. So why does Rotary support Polio Eradication? Rotary’s top 5 reasons: To improve lives. 16 million people are walking today who would have otherwise been paralyzed To invest in the future. If polio isn’t eradicated within 10 years, as many as 200,000 children could be paralyzed each year. A polio free world will be safer for children everywhere. To improve child health. Polio surveillance networks and vaccination campaigns also monitor children for other health problems like vitamin deficiency and measles, so they can be addressed sooner. To save money. A polio free world will save the global economy $40 -$50 billion in health costs within the next 20 years. To make history. Polio eradication would be one of history’s greatest public health achievements, with polio following smallpox to become only the second human disease eliminated from the world.The Rotary Foundation which administers the Polio Plus Initiative is among the top 10 charities in the world!

Vanier sweeps Avonlea in boys volleyball action
Moose Jaw High School Soccer
Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Swift Current Comp. Ardens capped the Moose Jaw High School Soccer League regular season with a 4-0 win over the Vanier Spirits on Tuesday, October 9th. Allison Wall, Jannae Carlson, MJ Anderson, and Calli Moreau-Simpson all found the back of the net for the Ardens in their fourth consecutive win. Juliana Whalen picked up the shutout in goal. The Ardens placed second in the five-team league with a 4-1-1 record. The semi-final was played this past weekend; no results as of press time.
Vikings remain undefeated in boys league after straight-sets win The Vanier Vikings apparently want nothing to do with the dogfight for second place taking place behind them in the Moose Jaw high school boys volleyball league. The Vikings improved to 5-0 on the season with a 3-0 (25-17, 25-15, 25-18) victory over the Avonlea Eagles on Oct. 10, moving two wins clear of the three teams battling for second â€“ Central (4-2), Avonlea (3-3) and Cornerstone Christian School (3-3). â€œWeâ€™re pretty happy, we made a lot of errors tonight but we were able to come back,â€? said Vikings senior middle Riley Follensbee. â€œWe knew what we needed to do and bounced back each time.â€? With things so close among the teams behind them, staying out of the fray while throwing a wrench into the mix themselves was part of the plan, seeing how the three lower teams are all tied with 3-2 records heading into play that night. â€œThey were on a three-game win streak so we wanted to slow that down, and weâ€™re on a streak ourselves so we wanted to keep it going,â€? Follensbee said. â€œWe definitely want to keep rolling and do everything we can to stay in first.â€? Vanierâ€™s success has largely been the product of experience â€“ Tyren Huber of the Avonlea Eagles goes for a they took the court with an veteran-laden team last year and alkill against the block of Vanierâ€™s Riley Follens- most everyone returned, which has led to them dropping only bee (12) and Kyle Gotana. two sets through their first five matches this season. â€œIt comes from experience, we only lost our setter from last year since he was in Grade 12,â€? Follensbee said when asked about the key to their undefeated record. â€œThen we picked up the setter from last yearâ€™s (city champion) junior team, so that helps with passing and knowing where to be and everything.â€? The Cyclones took sole possession of second place in the other game that evening, as they downed Cornerstone 3-0 (25-19, 25-20, 25-21) at Central.

Peacock leads the girls standings with a 6-0 record, two wins better than Vanier at 4-1.

The Lynbrook held the final tournament of the year on Saturday, October 6 and 60 hardy golfers started out at 10 a.m. with a reverse shotgun start for the Frosty Classic. The temperature was a balmy +3 at tee-off time. For the first time in a long time, there actually was FROST that delayed the start briefly. The format was inspired by Ryder Cup, with the physical holes #1 to #6 best ball, holes #7 to #12 alternate shot, and #13 to #18 best score. The lowest score of the day was registered by Mickey Wallace and Eric Kemp with a four-under par 67. There were also two teams tied at 71 and that was Mark Bevan and Shane Cole, along with Kelly Larson and Fred Tremblay. There were also scores over 100, and they also had fun. It is a no pressure tournament. The scores really did not matter, except for the bragging rights, as the prize money was done by draw, out of a bucket. There was also a closest to the pin for the Ladies, and that was won by Adele Owatz. The Menâ€™s closest to the pin was won by Barry Silk. The temperature as the tournament was wrapping up four hours later was +10 with no complaints registered from any of the 60 participants. Lunch, refreshments of your choice, and prizes followed.

Central, Peacock advance to football semifinals Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Central Cyclones and Peacock Tornadoes both advanced to the Moose Jaw High School Football League semifinals on Saturday. How they got there couldn’t have been more different. The Cyclones found themselves in an epic defensive battle with the Vanier Vikings, eventually taking a 2-0 victory; the Tornadoes used an effective and consistent run game to take a 2715 win over the Weyburn Eagles. Both games were in cold and windy conditions at Gutheridge Field. All the scoring in the first semifinal came early in the second quarter when Vanier conceded a safety. From that point on it was high-tension defensive football that saw Central escape the massive upset – a Houdini act that even saw Vanier have a touchdown called back due to a penalty. Ryan Vincent led Central with 18 carries for 91 yards; Ethan Johnson was 7-for-16 passing for 79 yards. Vanier managed only 55 yards of total offence, including 19 carries for mi-

Warriors win back-and-forth battle with Spokane
Tribe take three of four points on weekend after OT loss in Brandon Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
By the look of things, the Moose Jaw Warriors are proving to be an exceptionally tough team out for their WHL opponents, through the early part of the 2018-19 campaign. Case in point, their two contests this past weekend – a 5-4 overtime loss in Brandon on Oct. 12 and a 4-3 win over Spokane at Mosaic Place on Oct. 13 -- with the win, seeing the Warriors improve to 4-2-2 on the season. The victory over the Chiefs was almost prototypical of how the Warriors expect to play this season, as their grind-it-out effort might not have included any end-toend rushes or spectacular passing plays, but opportunistic shots, deflections and won battles in-close were enough to get the job done. “It was a character win, a character weekend; we got three points and points in six straight games, so we’re kind of hanging in there and finding our way,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter. “We’d have liked to have been better on the power play, we gave up a couple of goals, but it was a gritty effort and were happy with the result.” Daemon Hunt scored twice and added an assist, with Tate Popple and Brayden Tracey also scored for the Warriors. Ty Smith had a goal and an assist for Spokane; Carter Chorney and Riley Woods had their other markers. The win was all the more impressive given how the Tribe were shorthanded offensively with forwards Tyler
Warriors forward Tristan Langan looks on as Brayden Tracey’s shot finds it’s way behind Spokane goaltender Dawson Weatherhill for their second goal.
Weatherhill made 16 saves for the Chiefs. One night earlier, Tristan Langan had two goals and four points as the Warriors put together an impressive comefrom-behind effort – scoring the go-ahead goal with 3:49 remaining – only for Luka Burzan to tie the game for Brandon with 1:27 remaining and Connor Gutenberg to win the game 25 seconds into overtime. Josh Brook and Jett Woo also scored for the Warriors; Justin Almeida had four assists. Salmond made 19 saves in taking the loss; Moose Jaw fired 41 at Brandon’s Jiri Patera. The Warriors are back in action Oct. 19 when they host the Calgary Hitmen (7 p.m., Mosaic Place).
Smithies and Ryan Peckford both out of the line-up. “We had to put some defencemen up front and at the end of the day it helps them get some development time,” Hunter said. “It’s a next-man-up kind of philosophy and I thought everyone dug in and (goaltender Brodan) Salmond played well when we needed some stops and we got some timely scoring.” Salmond got the win in net with 20 stops, many of them of the amazing variety, including an outstanding glove save in-close in the game’s waning moments.

Generals split pair of games during week Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw Generals still found a way to get things done against the Notre Dame Argos on the afternoon of Oct. 14 at Mosaic Place. Cody Davis scored twice, including the game winner 2:53 into overtime, as the Generals took a 3-2 win. And seeing as that victory came on the heels of a 4-2 loss in Swift Current earlier in the week, you can bet it was more that welcome for a team with high expectations this season. “We were rolling a bit before we lost to Swift on Thursday, so it’s nice to get back in the win column with an overtime win,” said Generals goaltender Reece Hodson, who made 40 saves in the win over Notre Dame. “We were a little bit flat in that game, and they came out strong at the start today and maybe died off a bit, but ultimately we were able get the win and that’s good enough.” Jonah Regier scored the other goal for the Generals, who found themselves tied 1-1 after the first period and led 2-1 through two. The contest was scrambly at points, especially in the Generals’ zone as they found themselves struggling to clear bouncing pucks and saw more than their share of turnovers in their own zone – but for all that, the Argos had few clear shots and little sustained pressure on Hodson. “The guys were doing a good job of blocking guys out and neutralizing sticks and blocking shots, I thought we all worked hard and played well,” Hodson said.
Notre Dame Argos goaltender Ruben Cooper makes the stop in close on Moose Jaw Generals forward Casey McDonald. Against the Legionnaires on Oct. 11, Swift Current took a 2-0 lead out of the first period and led 4-1 through two. Davis and Casey McDonald scored for Moose Jaw; Jaxsen Taupert made 30 saves in the loss. Rebounding from that loss was of utmost importance for Generals, who saw their record improve to 4-3 with the win over Notre Dame, good enough for fifth place, one point back of the Regina Pat Canadians. “All the guys are really driving together and we’re having fun playing, so hopefully we’ll be able to put together a few more wins here and make a push for the Mac’s tournament,” Hodson said. The Generals are back in play Oct. 18 when they host the Saskatoon Blazers (7 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Woman with ‘emotional support squirrel’ removed from plane By Sophia Rosenbaum - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK _ Police at a Florida airport removed a passenger who refused to get off a Cleveland-bound flight after she was found carrying an ``emotional support squirrel.’’ Passengers had already boarded Frontier Airlines Flight 1612 at Orlando International Airport on Tuesday night when they were told there was a ``situation’’ and everyone needed to get off the plane, according to passenger Brandon Nixon. ``Everyone was a little panicked. You expect the worst when they say something like that,’’ the 24-year-old Ashland, Ohio
resident said. ``A lot of people were asking questions. People wanted to know what was going on.’’ As he exited the plane, Nixon said he asked a flight attendant if she had any other information. ``All she said was ‘a squirrel,’’’ he said. But once they were back in the terminal, ``word spread pretty quickly’’ about what was happening. Frontier says the passenger had noted in her reservation that she was bringing an emotional support animal with her on the flight, but she did not indicate it was a
squirrel. Rodents, including squirrels, are not one of the emotional support animals allowed on Frontier flights, according to its website. The airline says police were called when the passenger refused to leave the plane. Nixon captured video of the moment the woman was escorted through the terminal, pumping her fist in the air as she clutched her carry-on bag with the squirrel on her lap. ``I knew I had to capture that moment just to show it. It’s such an odd thing. Something you don’t see every day,’’ Nixon
said. The passengers boarded the plane 15 minutes later, taking off about two hours late. It arrived at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport at 11:57 p.m. EDT. But Nixon said most of the passengers didn’t mind the delay because it was such a unique situation. ``This is going to be a story to remember for the rest of our lives,’’ he said. © 2018 The Canadian Press
Winnipeg holds conference on preparing for emergencies like Humboldt bus crash WINNIPEG _ The manager for the City of Humboldt says community officials everywhere need to be trained in how to deal with trauma and mental-health needs following a disaster. Joe Day only had limited training in how to respond to an emergency when he was called last spring following a fatal crash that would shape his city in central Saskatchewan. A semi-trailer and a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team collided as the team was on its way to a playoff game. Sixteen people died and 13 were injured.
Day and Humboldt fire Chief Mike Kwasnica are sharing what they learned from the collision at a disaster management conference in Winnipeg. He says no one knew at the time how bad the crash was and people started trying to figure out what they’d have to do. He also says the grieving doesn’t end after a vigil or when media coverage starts to wane, so supports need to continue long after a traumatic event. © 2018 The Canadian Press
Israeli frankincense farmer cashes in on rare honey By Ilan Ben Zion - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ALMOG, Palestinian Territory _ An Israeli farmer has cashed in by making exotic honey from a rare tree that produces frankincense _ the resin once worth its weight in gold and venerated in the Bible. But the farm’s location in a far-flung West Bank settlement has left a bitter taste in at least one investor’s mouth. Guy Erlich’s Balm of Gilead Farm is home to 1,000 threatened Boswellia sacra _ the perfume-producing desert shrub mentioned in the Bible. He hopes these and his cornucopia of other medicinal plants will

yield remedies for human ills _ and even the conflict with the Palestinians. But the farm’s West Bank address, 6 kilometres (4 miles) from the Dead Sea, could hinder his project to cultivate and study threatened desert plants. The Palestinians and the vast majority of the international community consider Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, along with their use of local natural resources, to be illegal. Boswellia sacra is native to the deserts of northern Somalia, Yemen and Oman, and is threatened by overharvesting of its precious resin, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Mature Boswellia trees are scored to extract the resin, which hardens into lumps ranging from white to pale green in colour. Top grade frankincense can sell for hundreds of dollars per kilogram (pound). Most frankincense comes from trees tapped in the wild, rather than grown on plantations. The tree is not indigenous to the Levant, but its resin has been valued in the region for millennia as a highly prized aromatic used in medicine and rituals.

It was burned as part of religious ceremonies throughout the ancient Mediterranean world and was one of the ingredients mentioned in the Bible for the incense sacrifice in the ancient Jewish Temples. It was famously given as a gift to the newborn Jesus by the Magi, and still plays a central role in Orthodox Christian church ceremonies. The alleys around Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where many Christians believe Jesus was crucified, entombed and resurrected, are redolent of the frankincense that vendors burn to entice pilgrims to buy chunks of the yellow resin. While his Boswellia trees are still too young to produce frankincense, Erlich struck upon honey as a possible source of revenue for his operation. His first batch of single-source honey made from the desert plants’ tiny flowers sold for $1,000 a kilogram (nearly $500 a pound). The amber-hued, exceptionally sweet honey has earthy undertones and a slightly astringent finish. In less than a month, Erlich says he exhausted his initial four kilogram (9 pound) stock, selling most of it to customers in the United States. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Co-op and striking employees set to resume bargaining Striking Moose Jaw Co-op workers started a third week on the picket line Tuesday after they rejected the latest offer from the Moose Jaw Co-op Association Ltd. on Oct. 6. The 130 local employees of UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers) 1400 went on strike on Oct. 2 with the aim of securing better wages for a second tier of employees in their next contract. After negotiating into the night on Friday, the UFCW bargaining committee brought an offer to its membership -- including some Co-op employees who had crossed the picket line and returned to work -- for a vote the following day. “We want to let our customers know that we’re keeping our doors open to serve you, and we appreciate your patience as we work toward an agreement that balances the needs of all employees with the long-term viability of your Co-op,” said Gerry Onyskevich, general manager of the Moose Jaw Co-op in a press release. “For more than 70 years, we’ve been a part of the Moose Jaw community. To make sure we can serve you for many more years, we need a deal that’s both fair for our employees and allows us to be competitive in the long-term.” The Co-op said that they have proposed to increase wages in the previous agreement by two per cent per year for four years. After the UFCW 1400 membership rejected the offer,
Matthew Gourlie -- Moose Jaw Express management offered to return to the bargaining table on Friday, Oct. 19. UFCW 1400 have said that employees in the second tier of the wage grid make less for equal work. That second tier was created in 2014, when Moose Jaw’s Co-op and UFCW agreed to a new adjusted wage scale that would apply to newly hired employees. Co-Op management asserts that this two-tiered system is common in the retails industry and that their wages are as good, if not better, than their retail competitors. Rod Gillies, director of negotiations for UFCW 1400, noted that the union membership accepted that that back in 2014. “Back in 2014, there were no employees on the second tier before that vote,” Gillies said. “Presently, these employees have names and faces and are now co-workers of the employees on the first tier. The membership is taking job action and stand in solidarity to give these ‘second tier’ employees a voice -- as well as any new hires in the future.” Gillies said that 78 per cent of the employees on their lower wage grid are women, though the split of the bargaining unit is close to an even split of men and women. He also added that there is no mechanism in place for employees in the second tier to move into the primary wage grid. The Co-op asserts that the wages from the previous collective agreement are already considerably higher
than those of their competitors. They added that all new clerks hired by Moose Jaw Co-op under the existing second tier in the previous agreement can eventually earn up to $18.94 an hour, more than 20 per cent higher than if they were hired into a similar position with other local competitors who are also represented by the local UFCW 1400 union. “We are an inclusive workplace and treat all our employees with respect,” Onyskevitch said. “On average, women at Moose Jaw Co-op earn more than their male colleagues, which makes the accusations on discriminatory pay against women unfounded.” The Co-op added that they believe their compensation package, which includes wages, benefits, pension and more is offered to all eligible employees and is “among the best in Moose Jaw’s retail industry” per a press release. “In response to claims regarding retail competitors, the membership feel that ‘finding the lowest common denominator’ in respect of employees’ wages, is not what the Co-op is all about,” said Gillies. The Co-op’s four Moose Jaw locations remain open while employees picket on site. “We have not locked employees out and are encouraging and welcoming employees crossing the picket line who would like to continue working,” Onyskevitch said.

Labour, employer groups say feds to pass on rules for weed in the workplace OTTAWA _ Employer and labour groups say the Trudeau Liberals aren’t planning to roll out any new workplace impairment rules for federally-regulated workers once cannabis is legalized next week. Employers on the federally-struck committee wanted new labour code rules to provide detailed guidance to businesses on their and their employees’ responsibilities after legalization. A joint employer-worker group spent the last two years debating potential changes to the federal labour code but ended up split over whether to allow for mandatory drug and alcohol testing starting Oct. 17. Private sector employers say they are frustrated the Liberals haven’t given a mean-

On the Front Porch
by Wanda Smith
Window Washing Day With the interesting Saskatchewan weather weâ€™ve had lately, I was beginning to wonder if I would get my outside fall chores accomplished. I couldnâ€™t bear to think of leaving the windows unwashed or the garden unkempt. Thankfully, the nasty weather has made a turn around the last few days and Iâ€™ve been able to accomplish most of my outside tasks, including washing the windows. Window washing has not been a favorite chore, to say the least. The last home we had was the most difficult one in which we had several windows much higher than a ladder would safely reach. The only way those windows got washed was when Hubby was so gracious to do so. I would have to hold my tongue since some spots may have been missed but I knew there wouldâ€™ve been a lot more spots staring at me if he hadnâ€™t come to my aid. Itâ€™s interesting that a few spots could spoil the cleanliness of an entire window but they did have the power to do so if I allowed them to. My washing technique has changed quite a bit since I was newly married. Many hours were spent those first years trying to perfect the art of cleaning windows. There were several â€˜no failâ€™ methods but somehow those methods were an epic fail for me. I used brand name liquid window spray but it was near impossible to achieve a streak-free shine. Finally, years later, Hubby introduced me to some aerosol window cleaner heâ€™d bought at heavy duty mechanicâ€™s shop. It worked much, much better. Hallelujah. Where has this cleaner been all my life? It had much better results. I still use it for my mirrors and interior windows as well as auto glass. A couple years back, I had been having quite a lot of pain in both of my elbows so I wasnâ€™t going to be able to clean my windows with my go-to aerosol spray but I could hardly bear looking through the dirty glass all winter so I thought I would give the window squeegee gadget a try that my parents had given to me. I was very suspicious of this gadget... it seemed to be another one of those gimmicks you buy at trade shows that only padded the pockets of the marketers. I was desperate so I gave it a go filling a bucket full of hot water and a mild cleaner and dipped the T-shaped wand covered in a soft fabric and gave the first window a scrub. Then I used the second contraption, much like a car window squeegee and wiped the window dry. That day I ate humble pie. The gadget I had no faith in has now become my new go-to window cleaning machine. It takes a lot less time as well as physical effort to accomplish the best quality clean Iâ€™ve seen in almost 25 years of marriage. Iâ€™m sold. Next time youâ€™re at the yearly agricultural show, keep an eye out for the blue and yellow squeegee. I donâ€™t get a dime for the recommendation but Iâ€™ll be more than happy to hear that your window washing routine has improved as much as mine! Psalm 51:10 says, â€œCreate in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.â€? I like the Message Translation of this verse: â€œSoak me in your laundry and Iâ€™ll come out clean, scrub me and Iâ€™ll have a snow-white life.â€? God can take our soiled and dirty hearts and make them clean, even cleaner than my sparkling windows. Be blessed!

What was old is suddenly new again If one waits long enough, what is “old” will suddenly become “new” again. Take vinyl recordings, for instance. With the advent of compact discs and DVDs, vinyl records were shuffled off Joyce Walter to the hidden corners of recGuest Editor reation rooms and purchase of email@example.com stereo needles became almost impossible. Several years passed and suddenly vinyl became known as “retro” and record players with the ability to play music from all sources became available on retail shelves and second-hand stores were visited in search of discarded recordings in colourful jackets. Ditto with clothing: bell bottom trousers popular in the 1960s are back on the market as are puffy, quilted winter parkas. Old is new with the idea being that this old stuff is the brand-new concept of who older folks call the younger generation. Thus, it is with some of the concepts being discussed and put into place by the current city council component at city hall. Years ago, there was the rule that correspondence addressed to “Mayor and Council” automatically went onto the next agenda of city council, giving elected officials a chance to receive and file or to take actions that might have been suggested in the communication. That policy changed some years ago when councillors decided they were too busy to deal with what they sometimes called trivial correspondence, leaving the administration to decide what was important enough to make it onto the agenda of a council meeting. The policy was set to revert to the “old” two meetings ago, but the action was short-lived when the motion was reconsidered at the Oct. 9 meeting, and some councillors changed their votes. Why? Who knows. The transparency of elected officials wasn’t quite transparent enough for taxpayers to view clearly the reasons for the reversal. But on a happier note, the Executive Committee will no longer hunker down in the small confines of the Scoop Lewry Room. Effective immediately, the committee, which includes the entire city council, will hang out in regular council chambers, and the meetings will be available for viewing through Shaw Cable. What a novel “new” idea. Those meetings, long before they were called executive committee, took place in council chambers, with the public able to sit comfortably in the viewing area to hear and see the decisions being made. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean the end to in-camera meetings to deal with items supposedly connected to land sales and personnel issues. The Scoop Lewry Room won’t be totally abandoned. Now, if only the ghost of Scoop Lewry could find a way to tell the rest of us about those secret discussions.

THANK YOU PANDA AUTOBODY: Subaru Repairs
Dear Crystal, Curtis and Rosemary You may recall that 2 weeks ago tomorrow afternoon, we showed up in your shop with an overheating problem in our Subaru Outback. Crystal immediately took it into the shop and diagnosed the problem as either a plugged radiator or more likely a stuck thermostat which was fortunately available in Moose Jaw. She was very thorough in explaining the problem. A short time later she completed the repairs and after a test drive confirmed that the problem was solved. However, during the test drive she identified that I had a wheel bearing problem. I guess I knew I had a problem, but was in denial and tried to blame it on snow tire noise as I had put the snow tires on the day before we
left Vancouver. Unfortunately the wheel bearing had to come from Saskatoon. We agreed that with luck I could make it to my brothers house 500km away in Manitoba and back. You ordered the part and installed it on our return a few days later. While you installed it we were able to tour the tunnels and then spend the night at the beautiful old Grant Hall Hotel. Other than an early heavy fall snow storm in Alberta, we had an uneventful trip home to Vancouver made more relaxing without the annoying whine from the front wheel bearing. Thank you Panda for your excellent and caring service! Your very happy Vancouver customer Dennis Knoll
Moose Jaw Elks celebrate 105 years with official visit from National President Sasha-Gay Lobban
The Moose Jaw Elks Lodge #7 celebrated its 105th anniversary on Tuesday, October 9 at the Legion Hall. Grand Exalted Ruler (National President) of the Elks of Canada officially attended to recognize the significant milestone. The official visit of the National President, Brother Ron Potter is a first for Moose Jaw in nine years! To mark the occasion, the Moose Jaw Lodge also recognized volunteers and initiated two new members, as well as presented a cheque of $2,700 to the Elks of Canada Children’s Fund. The Elks of Canada is the oldest and largest all-Canadian fraternal charitable organization, with 250 Lodges and 11,000 Members throughout the country. There’s about 40 Lodges and 1,800 Members in Saskatchewan. The mission of the Elks of Canada is “a Canadian volunteer organization of men and women serving communities” with a vision “to be the best volunteer organization in Canadian communities.” “Nationally, we have the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children, which provides financial assistance

and programs for medical needs of children with hearing and speech disorders. The National Office is in Regina. Provincially, we have a Foundation which provides financial assistance for adults with medical needs where no funds are available from other sources. We are the main sponsor of SPARC, the Saskatchewan Pediatric Auditory Rehabilitation Centre (Children’s hearing centre) through our annual Walkathon. We also now have 135 Seniors’ Homes in eight communities across the province, helping seniors remain in their communities near their family and friends in well-maintained low-rent homes. We have homes in Moose Jaw, on Maple Street East,” said Harold Claffey, District Representative for District 7 (Regina and Moose Jaw area). Claffey says Moose Jaw Elks are heavily involved in the community. “Locally, our Lodge is heavily involved in Moose Jaw. We have concession stands annually at Park Art and 15 Wing Show and Shine. We cater barbecues for organizations all over town all summer. We have a Chili Challenge every February. We have Meat Draws every week. We contribute funds to many local needs, including the Health Foundation, the Food Bank and the Soccer Association. We provide Scholarships to the high schools. We provide personnel to the Salvation Army to operate the Christmas Kettles. We sold our building years ago and invested the funds. The growth from the investments pays our expenses, so we donate 100% of the funds we raise. We were the seventh lodge in Canada, founded in 1913. We have over 100 years’ experience in serving Moose Jaw, and tonight we celebrate our 105thAnniversary,” outlined Claffey. Grand Exalted Ruler Ron Potter,

His theme for his term as National President is “Looking Back – Driving Forward.” Potter has a burning passion for Elks of Canada, so much so that he has a tattoo of the Elks logo over his heart! “Elks are very much involved in the life of communities. There is not a community that you visit that there’s not an Elks ball park, playground or community hall that the Elks have built and run. We want people to know that we’re here and we are making an impact, so part of my official visit is to raise awareness. We do so many things in communities and across Canada,” said Potter. “My goal this year is to go to as many lodges as I can across the country to raise this awareness by meeting with community members and Lodge members and get the word out there on the numerous activities we contribute to in communities that keeps the community active and viable.”
Moose Jaw Company fined following death of worker A Moose Jaw company pleaded guilty to one count under Occupational Health and Safety regulations in Moose Jaw Provincial Court on October 3, 2018. Lorne Tardif, operating as Elite Eavestroughing, pleaded guilty to contravening clause 12(c) of the regulations (being an employer at a place of employment, fail in the provision of any information, instruction, training and supervision that is necessary to protect the health and safety of workers at work, resulting in the death of a worker). The company was fined $17,000 plus a surcharge of $6,800, a total of $23,800 in fines. Two additional charges were withdrawn. Charges stem from a workplace fatality on June 16, 2017, at a worksite in Moose Jaw. A worker fell from the roof of a house while taking measurements. Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, in partnership with the Workers’ Compensation Board, supports and promotes Mission: Zero – zero workplace injuries, zero fatalities and zero suffering. We are all responsible for keeping ourselves and each other safe and healthy at work.

We’d like to Welcome Daryl Epp to our team!
Daryl’s main focus will be in the Ag Division.
Growing up on the family farm and operating a grain and cattle operation for 22 years, I decided it was time for a change and pursued a career in trucking. I drove semi for an agriculture dealership allowing me to stay in the agriculture atmosphere and letting me deal with farmers and ranchers on a daily basis. Moving forward in life I've joined the RE/MAX team to offer my agricultural background and knowledge to help farmers with their changing environment and farming practices. Whether it is time for expansion or time to retire, I will help you make the transition a smooth, operable one.

Why Be Self-Employed? Michelson, SB Ad, Oct. 2, 2018.indd 1
Why do people become self-employed? Some people do it to bring to life their visions and ideas. Others do it for the potentially higher income. Still others do it because they know they are meant to be an entrepreneur. You have your own reason for starting a business. But whatever that reason may be, entrepreneurship can give you these 10 benefits: 1. The freedom to pursue your own vision. You can have your own view of the world, and entrepreneurship is the only venue where you pursue that view and see the fruition of your vision. Self-employment allows you to do your own thing and pursue those areas that you feel passionate about. 2. The control and flexibility you have over your own time. As your own boss, you work when you want to work; and stop if you want to stop. You can tailor your work according to your lifestyle and accommodate various tasks. You can work in however way you please — in your pajamas, with the TV loudly blaring — without getting a memo from the personnel department. Self-employment means freedom from rules. 3. The opportunity to learn and gain knowledge. The entrepreneur often wears many hats — the strategic planner, the marketer, the customer service rep, and the sales rep, even the bookkeeper. There are a million things you probably didn’t know before you started the business that you are now forced to learn — and gaining all this knowledge enriches you as a person. 4. The highs and lows of self-employment. Entrepreneurs face tremendous challenges and experience incredible joys when these challenges are overcome. If you crave excitement, become an entrepreneur. One moment, the local newspaper is featuring you; and the next, you are losing your
biggest customer. There’s never a dull moment in self-employment. 5. The sense of pride and fulfillment in accomplishing things. As an entrepreneur, you make things happen. You create a vision, lay out the plans to bring the plan to fruition and pursue the steps needed to make the business a success. Doing all these things can give you an incredible feeling of pride and joy – seeing your website used by people, finding your products in the department store, getting compliments from customers on how your business has helped them, and being written about by the media. In many respects, your business is your baby, and nurturing it and seeing it grow can give any parents a sense of fulfillment. 6. The confidence you gain in knowing that you can do it. Entrepreneurship is tough. There will be moments where you will question yourself, or your decisions into going into the business. Sometimes, you’d even think that you couldn’t do it when the obstacles seem insurmountable. But once you succeed and overcome the challenges, you gain a renewed confidence and respect for yourself that you can do it. 7. Potential earnings exceed a salaried employee. As an employee, no matter how hard you work, the financial remuneration you receive is limited to your salary and an occasional bonus. As a self-employed person, you can earn so much more if you hit the right business idea and execute the business well. The potential financial windfall is so much higher as an entrepreneur rather than a corporate person. 8. Business owner reaps the full rewards. You are the business; anything the business gains is yours. If you are an employee in the corporate world, your bosses may even claim your success
10/2/2018 4:13:59 PM
as theirs! If you are working for others, you are only a cog in the whole machine. 9. Each new day is a challenge. You never get bored as an entrepreneur: every day brings a new challenge, new tasks and new discoveries. You set your pace and you can go fast if you choose or slow down if you feel like it. 10. The chance to share your learning. At the end of the day, you can have the chance to teach and share with others the things you’ve learned as an entrepreneur. Sharing what you learned can be your way of giving back to the community – it can take the form of mentoring other would-be entrepreneurs, writing a book so others may see how you did it, or even talking about your experiences. There is so much pleasure in giving, and entrepreneurship gives you a life full of rich experiences. https://www.powerhomebiz.com/starting-a-business/entrepreneurship/why-be-self-employed.htm

Six benefits of entrepreneurship that are sure to surprise you Entrepreneurship is often touted as the best way to live your life. You get to work from home, be your own boss, and work only when you feel like it. The number of entrepreneurs has risen since the 2008 financial crash, and the numbers are only continuing to grow. These are the main benefits of entrepreneurship, but what many long-term entrepreneurs will tell you is that there are so many more surprising benefits. This guide is going to take you through them. Youâ€™ll learn new skills Entrepreneurs wear many hats. Itâ€™s the only way they can survive. For example, one of the most common skills they learn is how to sell. If an entrepreneur didnâ€™t previously work in a sales department this will be completely new, and theyâ€™ll have to learn fast. You canâ€™t survive as an entrepreneur without knowing how to sell your product or service. And the same principle applies to a range of roles youâ€™ll be expected to manage, including management, accounting, and customer service. A better work-life balance The stereotype of an entrepreneur is of a business leader constantly poring over the checklist for their business. Overworked entrepreneurs are common, but many of them find themselves breaking the daily grind and having more time for family and friends For many entrepreneurs, this is why they decided to start their own companies in the first place. Donâ€™t underestimate the health and productivity benefits that a better work-life balance can bring. Helping you to grow in confidence Never wanted to give a presentation to clients? As an employee, you could shift responsibility to someone else. Conventional companies donâ€™t allow you to leave your comfort zone. Entrepre-
neurs must leave their comfort zone if theyâ€™re going to succeed. Entrepreneurs have nobody to lean on so they have no choice but to gather up their courage and take on the obstacles theyâ€™d previously avoided. Youâ€™ll become a stronger businessperson and a stronger human being in general just because you became an entrepreneur. Seize your independence The secret to starting a business as fast as possible is to build up your career network and call in favours. All entrepreneurs are incredibly independent because they tackle problems head-on. If youâ€™ve spent all your life working in an office for a middle manager, you might be surprised to find just how little independence you have. Entrepreneurship will show you how to seize your independence. Youâ€™ll learn how to think for yourself and connect with people of your own accord. Itâ€™s a type of freedom many have never had since they were children, which is why entrepreneurship can feel so fresh and invigorating in the beginning. Contributing to world progress Millennial workers, which make up the largest part of the workforce, are often associated with wanting to make an impact. They want purpose. Entrepreneurs are doing just that. The solutions they come up with are making an impact and contributing to world progress. Itâ€™s easy to think that entrepreneurship is exclusively about starting and running a business. Entrepreneurs have to do things differently if theyâ€™re going to get a head start on other startups. And thatâ€™s contributing to world progress, even in a small way. Work where you want Entrepreneurs can work from anywhere where thereâ€™s an Internet connection. You have complete
freedom to live where you want and go where you want. There are an increasing number of entrepreneurs running businesses in the US from abroad. They make sure their business wonâ€™t collapse through living in cheaper countries where running costs are lower. But the freedom to work where you want is extremely liberating. Thereâ€™s nothing stopping you from working in one country for a month and moving to another country the next month. The reality is entrepreneurship isnâ€™t just a way for you to be your own boss. It will improve you as a person because youâ€™ll be learning new skills and growing in confidence. Five years from now you wonâ€™t be the same person, and itâ€™s all down to entrepreneurship. www.bizcommunity.com/Article/196/713/155792.html

Top 10 Jokes for Small Business Owners
As a small business owner, your days can be filled with tasks, stress and paperwork. It’s important that you keep your sense of humour and avoid taking life too seriously. The trials that a small business owner deals with on a daily basis can be hard to relate to for people that are not in the industry. Here are some great jokes to share with your small business owner colleagues: · I met a good friend while taking my morning walk. “Hey Paul, why do you look so dejected today?” “Oh Henry, I’m in trouble, I need cash for the business and have no idea where to get it from!!” “Oh, I’m sure glad to hear that” I replied. “I was afraid you might think you could borrow it from me!” · A quote from an interview with the head of a growing company. Journalist asks: - So how many employees are working in your company? - Approximately half of them... · Client: Yesterday I bought an energy saving bulb in your shop, returned home, but it does not work. It should not, it saves energy.
· A store manager overheard a clerk saying to a customer, “No, ma’am, we haven’t had any for some weeks now, and it doesn’t look as if we’ll be getting any soon.” Alarmed by what was being said, the manager rushed over to the customer who was walking out the door and said, “That isn’t true, ma’am. Of course, we’ll have some soon. In fact, we placed an order for it a couple of weeks ago.” Then the manager drew the clerk aside and

growled, “Never, never, never, never say we don’t have something. If we don’t have it, say we ordered it and it’s on its way. Now, what was it she wanted?” The clerk smiled and said ...”Rain.”
Why did the doughnut maker retire? He was fed up with the hole business.
· When a guy’s printer type began to grow faint, he called a local repair shop where a friendly man informed him that the printer probably needed only to be cleaned. Because the store charged $50 for such cleanings, he told him he might be better off reading the printer’s manual and trying the job himself. Pleasantly surprised by his candor, he asked, “Does your boss know that you discourage business?” “Actually, it’s my boss’s idea,” the employee replied sheepishly. “We usually make more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first.”
· The owner of a company tells his employees: “You worked very hard this year, therefore the company’s profits increased dramatically. As a reward, I’m giving everyone a check for $5,000.” Thrilled, the employees gather round and high five one another. “And if you work with the same zeal next year, I’ll sign those checks!”
· Fresh out of business school, the young man answered a want ad for an accountant. Now he was being interviewed by a very nervous man who ran a small business that he had started himself. “I need someone with an accounting degree,” the man said. “But mainly, I’m looking for someone to do my worrying for me.” “Excuse me?” the accountant said. ” I worry about a lot of things,” the man said. “But I don’t want to have to worry about money. Your job will be to take all the money worries off my back.” “I see,” the accountant said. “And how much does the job pay?” “I’ll start you at eighty thousand.” ” Eighty thousand dollars!” the accountant exclaimed. “How can such a small business afford a sum like that? “That,” the owner said, “is your first worry.”

Come tie one on!
ALL FOR ONLY
· I always tell new hires, don’t think of me as your boss, think of me as your friend who can fire you.
· The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leave 48 million to do the work. Of this, there are 29 million employed by the federal government. This leaves 19 million to do the work. 4 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to do the work. Take from the total the 14.8 million people who work for State and City Government and that leaves 200,000 to do the work. There are 188,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 12,000 to do the work. Now, there are 11,998 people in Prisons. That leaves Just two people to do the work. You and me. And you’re just sitting there reading jokes all day! ** Posted by Karen Erdelac on Apr 1, 2016; https://www.quikstonecapital.com/merchantcash-advance-blog/top-10-jokes-for-small-business-owners-0

Gladys Pierce opened Calico Junction in the Town “n’ Country Mall in 1973 and it is now operated by Todd and Barb Pierce, still family owned and operated for 45 years. It is known to have “The best fries in town!” And in 1979 the Pierce family opened Hopkins Dining Parlour… Good Times You Can Taste. Hopkins Dining Parlour is Saskatchewan's most unique restaurant with Victorian decor and antique furnishings. Great prime rib, seafood, steaks and 25 flavours of wings. Open 7 nights a week for dinner - Tuesday through Saturday for lunch. The Wayne Pierce family purchased this house in July 1978 and began searching for information on E.N. Hopkins, and collecting items for the restaurant
immediately. Antiques, collectables, pictures, stained and leaded glass and woodwork have been purchased from far and wide. As far away as Europe, Mortlach, Chaplin, Morse, Regina, McCord, various other places and of course Moose Jaw. Many of these items have been completely restored by the Pierces. The designing was done by the well-known James Parsonson Design Shoppe in Saskatoon. Guests to Hopkins have also been known to have seen a resident spirit named Minnie. Hopkins is a place where you will feel like a guest in their house enjoying fine food and the atmosphere of the Parlour. Visit us online at www.hopkinsdining.com

7 benefits of being an entrepreneur Lawernce, Small Business Ad, Sept. 26, 2018.indd 1
1. YOU SET YOUR OWN SCHEDULE Though entrepreneurship can often require long hours, the benefit of building a business is that you are in charge of deciding when you want to work. Instead of the monotonous 9-5 set-up, you’re able to have more independence and freedom. It’s not that you are doing less work, but rather that you’re able to choose when you want to work in order to accommodate other activities in your life.
9/26/2018 5:48:52 PM
2. YOU BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU DO Working in entrepreneurship is inspiring. Instead of being a cog in the wheel for a giant, hierarchical corporation, you are able to see your ideas make a difference and contribute to the construction of a brand-new business. 3. YOUR WORKPLACE CAN VARY Don’t expect to always be working from inside an office while working for or creating your own start-up. Entrepreneurs and other start-up founders often work from home or while

The ability to opt out of working constantly in an office is a great way to be able to experience a change in scenery and break up the monotony of always working in the same space. 4. YOU’RE THE BOSS You have a large degree of agency and control in what’s happening when you’re starting your own company. You get to build a team, decide where the company is going, and call the shots. 5. YOU GET TO SEE YOUR WORK CHANGE LIVES Part of what an entrepreneur does is solve problems. They make something more efficient, provide a better service or build a new
product that helps people in their everyday lives. Whatever it is that entrepreneurs are trying to sell, it’s meant to change and improve lives (and turn a profit). 6. YOU BECOME A BUSINESS LEADER Being able to see how your business has contributed to the local economy and provided jobs is incredibly rewarding. Your role as a business leader in your community is important and respectable. 7. EXCITEMENT Part of what makes entrepreneurship, so alluring is that it’s both dynamic and exciting. The company is growing and adapting constantly, keeping everyone on their toes.

The 7 Harsh Realities of Starting a Business you have your own business because you are here to make money. And if you don’t do what each of your bosses (customers) want, your business will go bankrupt. In addition, when you work a 9 to 5 job, all you have to do is work from 9 to 5. When you have your own business, you usually end up working 10 to 14-hour days and, in many cases, 7 days a week. Even after you start making money, things don’t always change.
Harsh Reality #1: Starting a business is like riding a roller coaster You probably have a vision of what your life will be like if you start a business. Well, you can take your vision and throw it out the window because your vision isn’t accurate. There isn’t much glamour in creating a company. It’s actually like being on a roller coaster. And it’s not like one of those kiddy roller coasters at Disneyland. It is more like one of those crazy ones at Six Flags. In business, sometimes things move very slowly, and at other times – really fast. You will have moments when you will enjoy what you are doing and others when you won’t be pleased with how things are going at all. To make things worse, sometimes things will

ey. If you don’t have a solid answer, don’t get into that business. And if you’re already into a non-revenue generating business, get out ASAP. Harsh Reality #5: You have to give a lot to get a little The world has changed, and it is no longer easy to build a successful business. Unlike in the old days, you can’t just pop up a website, point some ads at it, and build a big company. In today’s world, you have to give a lot. Whether it is free information or samples of your product, you have to do something to build trust with your customers. If they don’t trust you, they won’t spend money with you. The sad reality of building trust with your customers is that it isn’t something that is easy to do or cheap. You could lose a lot of money before you gain people’s trust. Harsh Reality #6: Coolness is inversely correlated to success I have no actual proof that coolness is inversely correlated to success, but in most cases it is true. The most successful companies aren’t cool or hip. They are actually dull and boring. If you don’t believe me, take a look at Twitter. Although it is a hot company, they’ll probably never make what Exxon Mobil makes in a day. Look at Facebook. Although unlike Twitter, Facebook is making money, but it can never be the size of Exxon Mobil. We need oil to survive. You can’t say the same for Facebook.
Harsh Reality #7: Time is worth more than money The companies that succeed over time aren’t the ones that create the perfect business from the start. Instead, they get their company out into the public as soon as possible. Once you get your company out there, you can find out what people are saying, make modifications, and then get more feedback. By being in a constant stream of iteration, you’ll have a higher chance of success because you will be modifying your company to meet your customers’ demands. If you take your time and release your company when you think it’s perfect, you’ll be in
for a big surprise. You will never be able to please everyone, and you will always run into problems you never even considered. What are you going to do when your customers tell you that they don’t like your so-called perfect company? You just spent a year perfecting it and wasted thousands of dollars. You would’ve been better off throwing something out there and getting feedback immediately. **by NEIL PATEL on NOVEMBER 24, 2009; https://www.quicksprout.com/2009/11/24/ the-7-harsh-realities-of-starting-a-business/

Starting a small business: 7 steps to success
Starting a small business and running it successfully are no easy tasks. In fact, most new businesses don’t survive to celebrate their fifth birthday. But don’t lose faith. There are techniques to improve your business’s odds of success. And they almost all come down to following time-tested methods that are easy to learn. It is all about doing the things you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to do them. If you follow sound fundamentals, your chances of success will be far higher. Here are seven steps to putting your new business on the road to success.
Successful entrepreneurs define specific goals in writing. They devote considerable effort to key tasks, such as studying their target market, defining marketing strategies and compiling cash-flow forecasts. They also build industry contacts to help them along the way.
3. Define an effective value proposition This sounds wordy, but it amounts to making sure that your product or service is more appealing to customers than your competitors’ offerings. Successful entrepreneurs know that no matter how good their offerings are, they won’t attract customers unless they have a clear 1. Proceed methodically.

6. Find out what help is available Federal, provincial and municipal governments and agencies offer a range of assistance to budding entrepreneurs. There is also a growing number of business incubators and accelerators that specialise in getting businesses off the ground. These organizations are great resources for entrepreneurs looking to build their business network and work in a collaborative space. It is also a good idea to look at your local chamber of commerce, local economic development centre or business leaders’ association. Many of these organizations have mentorship programs pairing new business owners with established business leaders. 7. Think long term When entrepreneurs go into business, they are naturally focused on their first weeks and months. However, in many industries, purchasing cycles can be much longer. For example, an entrepreneur who spends his first year in business developing a new software product will then need to devote considerable time marketing it. By thinking long term, entrepreneurs can make sure they have sufficient resources to get their business on a secure footing. **https://www.bdc.ca/en/articles-tools/startbuy-business/start-business/pages/7-keysstarting-small-business.aspx
