Rockefeller tree lights up the hospital thanks to Murray GM donation Matthew Gourlie

No one wants to be in the hospital over the holiday season but the presence of the giant Rockefeller Christmas tree, donated by Murray GM, will lift the spirits of anyone visiting the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital during this time of year. Wednesday, December 2nd, 2,900 LED lights were officially turned on to light-up the giant Christmas tree in the hospital lobby. “It really symbolizes, to a lot of people, hope and the spirit of the holiday season -- which is really giving,” said Kelly McElree, executive director of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. “For many patients and their families, they’re going through some really difficult times; it’s a wonderful feeling -- especially when the kids come in. You see them walking by and they look up and it’s 18 feet tall and they’ve never seen anything like it, especially in Moose Jaw. They’ve never seen anything quite like this tree and those bright smiles -- to see that on children when they walk in -- it’s really delightful.” This is the fourth year in a row that Murray GM was the winning bidder for the naming rights for the “Light Up the Holidays Tree” at the Festival of Trees. Murray GM bid $18,500 for the rights and will have the name of their business displayed in the lobby of the hospital throughout the holiday season. “We’re blessed to have the hospital -- not just for Moose Jaw, but for all of the residents in southern Saskatchewan. When you come to this facility, it’s first-class. It’s so fresh and new and exciting,” said Charles Vanden Broek, owner and general manager of Murray GM. “For us at the dealership, it’s a chance for us to give back. These facilities are always in need of equipment and this allows us to do our small part to help facilitate some of that. It means a lot to us.” The Rockefeller tree is modelled after its famous namesake at Rockefeller Center in New York City. In addition to standing 18 feet high, it is also eight feet wide at its base and has 8,000 branches. While hospitals can feel cold and antiseptic, having the huge tree prominently displayed adds a little warmth for employees and visitors alike. “A lot of employees have donated ornaments to us. So, there’s a little bit of Moose Jaw on every branch of this tree,” McElree said. “There’s so much on the tree, so people look at it through the day and they notice something different. They notice the owl in the tree or the little puppy or a special ornament that they donated. For the people who put in the long, long hours -- or they had a challenge with a patient -- it brightens their day. “The tree means so many different things to many different people. A lot of families come in throughout the holidays to look at the tree. That’s the spirit behind the tree: to give people hope and make them feel a bit of Christmas throughout the holidays.” The Moose Jaw Health Foundation held its 27th annual Festival of Trees fundraiser in November and have raised more than $4.1 million for equipment at the local hospital throughout the 27 years.

Wigmore Hospital following the official lighting ceremony. Matthew Gourlie photograph This year’s event raised more than $120,000. The proceeds from the Rockefeller tree will go towards the Foundation’s diagnostic imaging campaign to purchase a new digital C-Arm imaging unit that will be used for orthopedic surgery. “We’re really, really thankful for Charles and Murray GM for sponsoring this each and every year. It means a tremendous amount to the foundation and we’re very, very thankful for it,” McElree said.

Fall Legislative Session Stands Up for Saskatchewan People MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

The Fall Legislative Session came to a close this past week. Important legislation was moved forward in standing up for Saskatchewan people. One of the most notable bills which was introduced – and later passed – during the fall session is the Management and Reduction of Greenhouse Gases Amendment Act. This is based on the Prairie Resilience policy of our government, designed to work with industry sectors to reduce carbon emissions without devastating the economy. It is a meaningful policy to reduce emissions without imposing a tax that will reduce jobs in Saskatchewan while doing nothing to reduce global emissions. Prairie Resilience is not only designed to curb greenhouse gas emissions but also to prepare for changing climate conditions, and protect people and communities through resilience and readiness. Interpersonal and sexual violence is a tragedy that is unacceptable and should never happen. The Government of Saskatchewan is focused on reducing and preventing domestic violence through ongoing collaboration with provincial partners and other ministries. An important step was becoming the first province in Canada to introduce legislation that allows police to release information about someone’s violent or abusive past to intimate partners who may be at risk. The Interpersonal Violence Disclosure Protocol (Clare’s Law) Act will provide greater protection for individuals at risk of intimate partner violence.

Major life events have a big impact on families, whether joyous like the birth a new child, or difficult like caring for an ill loved one or being affected by interpersonal violence. An amendment to The Saskatchewan Employment Act will make changes to some job-protected leaves to make these circumstances more manageable for individuals and families. Parental leave will expand from 37 weeks to 63 weeks and both adoption and maternity leave will expand to 19 weeks. New critically ill adult leave will offer 17 weeks for workers to care for critically ill adult family members. Additionally, the 10 days of interpersonal violence leave will be expanded to include survivors of all forms of sexual violence. The time can be used to seek medical or legal help, access support services, or to relocate to a safe space. Proposed legislation will make amendments to The Trespass to Property Act, The Snowmobile Act, and The Wildlife Act, 1998, to better balance the rights of rural land owners and members of the public. The results of an online questionnaire indicated that 65 per cent of respondents were in favour of requiring those who wish to access rural land to gain prior permission beforehand. The legislation provides legal protection to land owners and occupiers against property damage and the risk of agricultural diseases, and limits any liability that may arise from a trespasser’s presence on their property. The Legislative Session makes for full and long days, leaving Moose Jaw before 7:30 a.m. most days. When scheduled for the late sitting until 10:30 p.m., arriving home is after 11:00 p.m. The work, however, is rewarding as I am involved in seeing important legislation move forward to better the lives of the people of Saskatchewan. Now that the fall session has concluded, I welcome the weeks ahead spending time in the constituency. I enjoy the part of being your MLA when I can interact with you. Please feel free to call the office or stop in. We are located at 326-B High St. W. and can be reached by phone at 306-692-8884.

LETTER

November 22, 2018 I was pleased to see the petition by Jody Chell wanting Brian Swanson to resign his position from City Council and call it a day. It was received and filed after Mayor Tolmie spoke and gave some fancy words and Swanson is still on City Council. Many people voted for Swanson because he was forever throwing a “monkey wrench� to stir things up on the dockets and serving his own needs in the economy of Moose Jaw and people all knew it, too. For ten years he and other council people voted to keep the tax base the same so that his father and himself who own properties, as other like-minded people did to make money down the road.

TO THE

EDITOR

Swanson has sat on City Council for years and lost a number of votes in the last election, and I’m pleased for the petition which Jody Chell presented to City Council. I know for a fact, his days are numbered and his hand won’t be able to raise against any money matters for important stuff anymore. Period. Elizabeth DuSomme

TRADING THOUGHTS

Success of federal fund to subsidize news media undetermined

The federal Liberal government has decided to help (bail out?) news media with a $595 million fund spread out over five years. The fund recognizes the vital role news media plays, informing residents and allowing voters to keep by Ron Walter government and powerful figures accountable. Since 1787, the news media, described as the fourth estate after clergy, nobility and commoners, has been recognized for its influence on society. That influence waned mightily in the last 20 years as online giants such as Google and Facebook captured a major share of the advertising that keeps traditional news media prosperous. The plan is to set up an independent panel of journalists and news media to determine who qualifies for support. The central idea is to support labour costs of producing original news content. Two associated moves offer a 15 per cent tax credit to people who subscribe to online news media. And media will be allowed to offer tax receipts for charitable donations.

Right out of the starting gate, skeptical Conservatives criticized the Liberals for trying to buy the media just before an election with this media fund. If the government-funded CBC is an example, government support for that outlet has only bought successive governments grief as foolishness has been exposed. The NDP critics asked why most government advertising is placed with Google and Facebook if traditional media are so important? That is a good question. Advertisers place ads where they feel they best reach the audience they want. Few millennials read traditional newspapers, thus the popularity of Google and Facebook. Local news outlets like The Moose Jaw Express keep operating because advertisers find them useful in distributing their messages and because they offer local residents a news package they want to read. The Liberal media fund created controversy within the media. Many executives salivate at the notion of assistance. Most journalists shudder at the perception their owners may be in the government’s pocket. Total independence from government is preferable. The $595 million — or $99 million a year – spread out across Canada over hundreds of outlets won’t buy much of anything. The tax credit for online subscriptions could be a big boost. Newspapers have difficulty attracting online

subscriptions. The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times are among few online subscription successes in North America. The charitable receipts access should be a boon, especially for struggling local and regional online media. The make-up of the independent panel and the guidelines on what outlets get assistance will be crucial to the success of the measure assisting labour costs. Will local and/or non-profits benefit most from the assistance? Or will funds be skewed to larger traditional media? The bottom line for any new legislation becomes: will it make a real difference? Or is it just a cosmetic patch? The fund could help in the transition of readers from print media to online operations. But the trend to mass online media will continue until the Facebooks, Instagrams and Googles of the world can no longer deliver large audiences at low cost. The sad part of the whole discussion arises from the fake news aspects of online giants and the loss of the sense of community that comes from local news outlets. The Liberals recognized the problem but the success of their solution is uncertain. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

A little humour to melt away some of your holiday stress: Would you like to learn how to write a boastful, overly intimate holiday newsletter? This indispensable how-to guide can help, illustrated with real quotes. • Open strong with a passive-aggressive attack on a loved one: “[This year is] barreling to a close as Deborah spends yet another Saturday at the wine shop.” Joan Ritchie EDITOR • Brag about any new job developments—especially if you don’t deserve them: “I got promoted this year to VP … shows how little they really know about my past!!!” • Be creative! Even good news can be delivered so the reader cringes: “[My wife has] felt almost every negative feeling you can have during a pregnancy—nausea, fatigue, rashes, arthritis, sciatic nerve pain, hip pains, and strong emotional conditions.” • If you want to cement your status as least favorite distant cousins, just write the most dreaded words in the English language: “We thought it would be cool if we shared what’s going on as a PowerPoint presentation.” Gawker.com worstchristmasletters.blogspot.com, Brandon Specktor Next, the tree. Note: The real trick isn’t picking the right pine. It’s getting it inside your home. With this plan, you’ll be trimming in no time. Cut the cords that bind the tree to the roof of your car. Allow them to snap back and strike you in the eye. Slowly pull the tree toward you. Wobble under its weight for a few seconds, then fall down. Stand up and notice the fresh scratches on the roof of your car. Drag the tree to your front door. Spend 15 minutes figuring out how to open the door while simultaneously getting the tree through it. Drag the tree away from the door so that you can enter with the tree facing in the right direction. Once inside, fill the tree stand with water. Knock all the water out of the tree stand because you forgot to wait to fill the tree stand until after putting the tree in it. Your tree should now be in the stand. Notice the fallen needles that have reduced your tree to half the size it was when you bought it. Down seven cups of eggnog to settle your nerves. Decorate the tree tomorrow! The gifts are opened, the eggnog consumed…and your kids have begun a demands wish list for next year. If you’re feeling woozy, it may be because you’ve contracted at least one of these seasonal maladies: • Pay Saks Disease: A mania for buying gifts and abusing credit lines, followed by a compulsive urge to carry ten shopping bags at once. • Seasonal Affection Disorder (SAD): An exaggerated emotional response (typically shrieking and air-kissing) triggered by seeing insignificant acquaintances at annual parties. • Gift-aphasia: Loss of memory that causes the accidental recycling of gifts back to the same people who gave them to you

last year.

Moose Jaw Transition House marks ‘National Day of Remembrance’ Sasha-Gay Lobban

Thursday, December 6th marked National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada. The day is also the anniversary of the murders that took place in 1989 of 14 young women at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal who were slaughtered because they were women. The Moose Jaw Transition House hosted a luncheon at the Minto United Church, ‘A Day of Remembrance’ to remember the victims of this massacre and to highlight actions to eliminate violence against women. Executive Director at the Moose Jaw Transition House, Lori Lancaster observed a minute of silence for the victims after saying their names aloud to remember them. “This event was important to remember those 14 women who lost their lives simply because they were women and to bring awareness to violence against women,” Lancaster noted. “People do sometimes think we’ve gotten further than we have in ending violence against women and girls, however, in Saskatchewan, we still have the highest provincial rates of police reported domestic violence in Canada. This is an unfortunate statistic that we really need to change.” Lancaster added that it is also important to recognize that domestic violence is not only physical but can manifest in a variety of ways. “I think attitudes to domestic violence in gen-

Guest speaker Lani Elliott. eral have started to change but we still have a long way to go. It is really important for people to understand that domestic violence is about power and control and isn’t just physical violence. It is a wide spectrum which also includes controlling behaviors, verbal, emotional and even reproductive control.” Motivational speaker, Lani Elliott was the guest speaker at this year’s luncheon. Elliott recounted being in a marriage laced with domestic violence which almost took her life. She spoke about surviving the tragedy and reinforced the impact domestic violence can have on those involved. “I want to say to anyone who is a victim of any kind of abuse; emotional, verbal, physical and otherwise that you deserve better. There is a life out there that is better than that, that you can be free from violence,” she

emphasized. “There are people and organizations out there that care and will help you. There is a better life. There is never an excuse to harm others. I want women to know that they are valued and worthy and no one deserves to live in violence.” MLA for Moose Jaw North, Warren Michelson, Chief of Police Rick Bourassa and City Councillor Heather Eby were also in attendance and brought remarks. MLA Michelson, while admitting that Saskatchewan’s rate of reported cases of domestic violence is the highest in the country, says the government has undertaken a number of policies aimed at reducing incidents of domestic violence. “Saskatchewan has the highest rate of domestic violence in the country and it’s nothing to be proud of. We take this issue very seriously and we’ve undertaken a number of policy responses. We’ve changed the residential penalty act so that a victim can break his or her lease in order to flee a domestic violence situation; we’ve also made changes to the employment act so that an individual can take up to 10 unpaid days off of work in order to focus and deal with domestic violent situations; and Saskatchewan is the first province in Canada to introduce Clare’s Law which allows the police to disclose the violent history of someone to a potential partner.”

Registration starting soon for Riverview’s 60th anniversary reunion Matthew Gourlie

It’s going to be a celebration 60 years in the making. Next summer, the Riverview Alumni Association will be hosting a 60th anniversary, all-years reunion for graduates of Riverview Collegiate from Aug. 9-11. The Riverview Alumni Association has previously held all-years reunions for the 25th, 40th and 50th anniversaries of the school. “We would like to have 800 alumni,” said RVCI 60 organizing committee co-chair Mary Lee Booth. “The last (reunion) was our 50th and there were 630 registrants, so we’re hoping to top that.” The event, A Summer To Remember, will feature events at the Convention Centre on the Exhibition Grounds on the first two evenings. Friday will open with a hospitality evening with entertainment and a meal. Saturday morning features a pancake breakfast at Riverview and will provide attendees with a chance to tour the school. Saturday night the festivities will return to the Exhibition Grounds for a banquet, dinner, dance and social with a live performance by the Bromantics. There are more events being finalized and some that are still being kept under wraps. There is some free time, so attendees can spend time seeing the city, as well. Booth graduated in 1978 and her graduating class has had their own class reunions over the years. “We’ve stayed in touch, but these big events are very fun because you get to see people from the years previous and the years after. It’s just that much more fun,” she said. “A lot of folks that are our age or older are on the planning committee. This might be the last all-years reunion, so we really want to encourage people to come.” The Riverview Alumni Association was formed in the early 1990s and has helped keep Royals in touch with one another since. Riverview opened on South Hill in 1959 to serve the growing population on that side of the city, as well as the growth of 15 Wing Moose Jaw to the south of the city. When the school opened, it had approximately 250 students and grew to a population of nearly 600. Those numbers have dropped considerably in recent years as students have become less geographically-tied to where they attend high school. “We’ve seen it evolve over the years. During my time, I

graduated in the late ‘70s, I think there were about 600 kids. We had 106 in our graduating class and I think the year before us had 120. Now that’s the enrollment of the school is 120. The school has really changed. About 10 or 15 years ago now they went through the (block) system which was an interesting time too. They flirted around with that and went back to the semester system. “It is interesting how it has evolved. And now it’s home to the life skills program.” The RVCI Alumni Association would love to see more recent graduates get involved and take part. “There seems to be more interest in the older generation than there is in the younger generation, in keeping in touch with our classmates and being nostalgic,” Booth said. “What we need for people to do is register with us in our database. Our major contact is through email,” explained Terrence Walker RVCI 60 organizing committee treasurer. They can do that by clicking on the subscribe button on the front page of the Riverview Alumni Association home page (https://www.riverviewalumni.org). “Then they’ll be getting updates and the latest information,” added Walker. Registration for RVCI 60 will begin early in the new year. Interested attendees can register online, though there will be email and a mail-in option for people who aren’t online. Visit Moose Jaw provided strong early sponsorship and support for the event and the Prairie South School Division has also supported RVCI 60. The organizing committee are still looking for corporate sponsors who may want to offer prizes or coupons and promotions for the homecoming attendees. RVCI 60 is also looking for service groups who may be looking at doing a designated driver fundraiser who can help transport people to and from the events. There are 22 people on the planning committee who have spent 18 months already organizing the event, but they added that they can always use more volunteers as the event gets closer. “We will be looking for additional volunteers to help with some hands-on things like the registration table, set-up and tear-down,” Booth said.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Whippersnapper hears power failure tall tale It isn’t officially winter yet and already we will have stories to tell the youngsters in years to come about the hardships we faced in the late fall of 2018. “Why young Johnny, you haven’t had a real experience with Mother Nature yet. This weather here is nothing like what your Joyce Walter family endured in that fall of 2018,” that unlucky For Moose Jaw Express youngster will be told by an older person in his life. He will learn that on Dec. 4, 2018, at 9 a.m., the electricity went off right in the middle of the morning coffee break, plunging most of the province into the grey darkness of minus 10 weather. “The rime frost on the trees attached to the power lines, causing them to sink and break and to send signals to the power plants that they should shut down to protect the system from further damage. But we didn’t know what was happening, especially those of us who didn’t have all the Apps on our phones to tell us what was happening. “And we couldn’t get through to SaskPower to let

someone know we didn’t have lights or heat because either the line was busy or some mechanical voice came on to tell us to be patient, that line people were on the job. “The neighbours weren’t home so we couldn’t ask them what to do either. Talk about being isolated among thousands of people.” At this point, young Johnny is looking furtively for a way to escape this story from the oldtimer, but he doesn’t want to be rude, so there he stays, listening to the tale of the olden times, learning about the day the power went off. “How long was the power off?” he asks. “It was off for six long hours. And that included lunch time and the afternoon coffee break. We whipped up some sandwiches for lunch and opened the fridge door just a little ways to get the milk out. We didn’t want our food in there to thaw. But we had no way to heat water for coffee and when it is cold outside, you don’t want to drink anything that isn’t hot, or at least warm. “But we heard on the battery-operated radio that the hospital could provide a hot drink in the cafeteria, but that meant we would have to go outside and get even colder. “At that point we figured we should try using our cellphones to call the family, but we noticed both of the phones needed to be charged. That settled it: we had

APAS joining fight against carbon tax By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

The Agriculture Producers EXPRESS Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) wants to join the court battle against the federal carbon tax. APAS has asked for intervenor status in the court case being supported by the provincial governments of Saskatchewan, Ontario, Manitoba, New Brunswick and now British Columbia. British Columbia’s argument is for a uniform carbon tax in all provinces. APAS President Todd Lewis said the carbon tax will increase farm costs without solving carbon emission problems. Farmers and ranchers sequester millions of tonnes of carbon by management practices, he said, and that should be recognized “as more important than tax policy AGRIMART

in solving the problem.” He noted Saskatchewan has 43 per cent of Canada’s cropland and 37 per cent of grasslands. Meanwhile, the Saskatchewan Government has introduced a Climate Resiliency Framework instead of a carbon tax. The framework will measure agricultural land with nutrient stewardship, greenhouse gas emissions from government buildings, provincial, forest harvest, flood plain mapping and wildfire management. The plan includes reducing emissions in electricity, oil and gas and industries that emit more than 25,000 tonnes a year. Greenhouse gas emissions are supposed to be reduced by 12 million tonnes by 2030. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

to get out to the car and the in-car charger so for an hour we drove up and down the empty streets, carefully watching the gas tank indicator because if we ran out of gas, there was no place to get a fill-up. As the needle headed left, we checked the phone and saw it was at 65 per cent, enough to get us through to the next day, if necessary. “It was a cold, scary day without television, our computers, our microwave, the stove. But luckily, we had lots of batteries for the flashlights and the transistor radio, and cans of salmon and beans and Spam and loaves of bread so we wouldn’t starve, and we had longjohns and extra quilts to make it through the night. “But then right when we were hunkering down, the fridge started humming and the lights came on and the furnace kicked in. What a relief to be rescued and what a nightmare that day was. Some boiling hot homemade soup for supper hit the spot. “So you see Johnny, you should learn from the old days and remember what I’ve told you about that day in 2018. But thankfully you will never have it as hard as we did that day.” Johnny thanked his relative for the information and hurried off, happy to escape any more stories of the bad old days.

Families for Change open new Kinsmen Inclusion Centre Matthew Gourlie

When three local families launched Moose Jaw Families for Change in 2000, they wanted to create safe and inclusive spaces for people with intellectual disabilities in Moose Jaw. It was a proud moment for Moose Jaw Families for Change (MJFFC), therefore, when the new Kinsmen Inclusion Centre had its grand opening on Wednesday, Nov. 28. The centre has been open for four weeks prior to the grand opening at its location in the old Conexus Credit Union location on South Hill at 335 4th Ave. SW. “We’re providing day programs to the folks that we support within Moose Jaw Families for Change,” said Katie Statler, community coordinator for Moose Jaw Families for Change. “With that being said, we’re also expanding to offer evening and weekend options for folks with varying abilities. For example, we are expanding to do some evening music sessions that we’ll offer to the community and other homes, as well.” Statler said that the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre is open to any folks of varying abilities. “It’s not just folks who live in a group home. It might be someone who lives independent; it might be someone who lives with their family or in an approved group home organization,” she said. “Really, anyone can contact us through our facebook page, through our office or through communication at MJFFC.com. What we usually like to do is a face-to-face to meet that person and see what their needs are and what their interests are, and how we

Matthew Gourlie photograph can support them.” The founding families of MJFFC -- the Scidmores, the Sapps and the Hammers -wanted to create safe and inclusive opportunities, both residentially and within the community of Moose Jaw for their adult children. Statler hopes the inclusion centre can continue to break down barriers within the community. “Something Moose Jaw Families for Change have wanted to do since the founding families came together is provide more opportunities in the community,” Statler said. “We’ve wanted to carry on that lega-

cy and by creating the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre, we’re doing just that.” The location is in a highly visible, high-traffic area that Statler said is ideal for their needs. MJFFC board member Chris Sapp also works for Conexus and they were able to strike a deal to buy the building at a reasonable price. “When Conexus left this building and left a gap here on South Hill, I was kind of worried and wondering what would best suit and fit this space,” said city councillor Crystal Froese. “I cannot think of a better organization to fill this space here or

a more beneficial service that needs to be provided.” The Government of Saskatchewan provided $200,000 to Moose Jaw Families for Change for the project. “Creating inclusive communities means having inclusive spaces where people can come together so they can interact with each other, do activities that provide purpose and most importantly have fun and enjoy their lives,” said Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence. In addition to the government’s funding, the MJFFC were the Moose Jaw Co-op “Fuel Good Day” recipients which helped make their wheelchair-accessible bathroom possible. The Moose Jaw Kinsmen Club have a five-year sponsorship in place and Statler said that they expect to review it before that term is up to see how they can continue to work together to meet the needs of the facility and the community. “When (MJFFC executive director Tami Grieve) came to me saying that this was something that they had in mind and something that they wanted to do, I knew this was something that our club would jump on,” said Jeremy Hanson, media director for the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Club. “Luckily for me, they did all of the work and came to our meeting and in a five-minute video they showed our club what I got to see every day being here -- that this is a fantastic place. Our club jumped behind them right away and we got our name on the building. We’re really excited to work more with them in the future.”

Farmers no longer should “suck it up” when suffering By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

For generations, the attitude among EXPRESS farmers and farm families to personal strain and suffering has been to suck it up. That be tough/don’t cry attitude is no longer acceptable. The idea of mental well-being in agriculture, rather than suck it up, has become recognized as necessary for healthy farmers. The only way to challenge the old attitudes comes from open-ness, sharing concerns whether on coffee row or in a truck while chatting on a grid road. Challenging conditions beyond the individual’s control

AGRIMART

— weather, global markets, crop situations, finances, long harvest seasons — all create issues for mental health. A new Farm Credit Canada publication, Rooted in Strength, has been mailed to 165,000 rural addresses. The publication is intended to remove the stigma around mental health by promoting awareness, encouraging people to talk and seek support, should they need it. A Saskatchewan farmer Kim Keller shares experiences in the publication. Keller, the founder of Do More Agriculture, a non-profit working on mental health in agriculture, says the stigmas of needing support need to be broken. When you notice someone is not in their normal behavior, she suggests opening the door to conversation by asking

about the matter. Canada is one of the few countries not keeping data on suicide in the agricultural industry. Hearings on mental health by the federal standing committee on agriculture and agri-food while studying the matter have heard of suicides. A United States study found workers in forestry, fisheries and agriculture were five times as likely to take their own lives as the general population.

CP Rail launches High Efficiency Product (HEP) train at G3 Pasqua Elevator Sasha-Gay Lobban

Canadian Pacific unveiled the next generation of grain transportation at the G3 Pasqua Elevator near Moose Jaw on Tuesday, December 4. The 8,500-foot High Efficiency Product (HEP) train features new, and highly efficient, Canadian-made hopper cars, and can move approximately 44 percent more grain than the prior generation of grain train. Speaking at a press conference to launch the HEP train, Joan Hardy, CP’s Vice-President Sales and Marketing – Grain and Fertilizers says CP has invested half-a-billion-dollars which will see the hopper cars increasing to 5,900 over the next four (4) years. This she noted is a major move and a big investment for customers. “I am very happy to be at G3 Pasqua to celebrate the arrival of CP’s new high capacity hopper cars. To date, we’ve taken delivery of more than 300 of these new hopper cars and we have a full train of these cars loaded here with Saskatchewan grains today,” (December, 4, 2018), she said. “By the end of 2018, we will have 500 of these new hoppers in our fleet and 1000 cars by the end of the first quarter of 2019. Over the next four years, we plan to purchase a total of 5,900 new hopper cars. This is an investment of half-ofbillion-dollars on the part of CP. These new hopper cars will fully replace the old lower capacity government of Canada hopper cars. This is also a massive investment for our customers and would

CP’s 8,500-foot High Efficiency Product (HEP) train loads at G3’s Pasqua elevator. not have been possible without the Federal government’s passage this spring of Bill C-49—the Transportation Modernization Act,” Hardy pointed out. She continued, “A state-of-the-art loop track terminal like this is the perfect backdrop for launching our first HEP train and bringing in a new, more efficient era of moving Canada’s grain to market. As CP continues to take delivery of new railcars, and elevator operators expand their facilities to handle 8,500-foot trains, this HEP train will become the new gold standard – driving further efficiencies for farmers, shippers and the entire grain supply chain. The future of the grain supply chain is bright. With continued collaboration, a commitment to innovation, and strategic capital investment in key markets, like Saskatchewan, the grain supply chain is well positioned for continued success.” G3 constructed its state-of-the-art Pasqua terminal loop track to handle the 8,500-foot-long HEP trains. The fast loading loop track means CP can keep locomotives attached to the train during loading, and those same locomotives are in place to launch the train once loading is complete. Mark Dyck, G3’s Senior Director Logistics said this multi-billion dollar in-

vestment will allow Canada to remain competitive in the global market. “Investments like CPs new cars are going to allow us to move a lot more gain. Our loop tracks can accommodate trains which are 8,500 feet in length and this equates to 134 of the current hopper cart fleet in Canada of the 150 brand new hopper cars. These new cars hold more grain in comparison to the older fleet. These investments will allow Canadian farmers to get their product to market more quickly and efficiently and allow Canada to remain competitive in the world market.” Meanwhile, G3 CEO Don Chapman said, “CP’s new high-capacity hopper cars add an important link in the grain supply chain. Combined with fast, efficient loading on G3 loop track systems, these trains will accelerate the flow of grain to market, to the benefit of all our customers. G3 is proud to work in close collaboration with CP.” The new hopper cars that make up the train feature a capacity 10 percent greater by weight than the older-model Government of Canada cars, and 15 percent more volume. The cars carry this extra product on a frame 5 percent shorter than the older cars, meaning more cars can fit into a train of the same length. The cars are part of CP’s investments that

it is making to upgrade its fleet to better and more efficiently serve farmers and the Canadian economy. “We are pleased to see CP unveil their high-capacity hopper cars,” Lori Carr, Saskatchewan’s Minister of Highways and Infrastructure said, who was also at the press conference. “CP’s investment along with G3’s investment in a long loop track will help our producers get their product to market more efficiently and in greater volume.” Minister Carr said this investment shows CP’s commitment to innovation in the transportation network. “Saskatchewan is an export based province and our transportation network is vital to the overall success of our economy. We rely heavily on rail to move our resources including food, fuel and fertilizer. I know that the Canadian Pacific Railway is required to develop and submit a grain transportation and winter operations contingency plan for the current crop year. I’ve seen this plan and you certainly mean business. We celebrate these actions that are taking place. The launch of CP’s new hopper cars and High Efficiency Product train right here at G3’s Pasqua Elevator demonstrates an impressive response to the new requirements as well as the commitment toward innovation and the agriculture sector as a whole.” CP moved 2.64 million metric tonnes (MMT) of Canadian grain and grain products in October making it CP’s biggest month ever for moving Canadian grain, breaking the record from September 2017. CP has also broken its previous record for carloads of Western Canadian grain and grain products shipped to the Port of Vancouver in a single month. Canadian Pacific is a transcontinental railway in Canada and the United States with direct links to major ports on the west and east coasts. CP provides North American customers a competitive rail service with access to key markets in every corner of the globe. CP is growing with its customers, offering a suite of freight transportation services, logistics solutions and supply chain expertise.

Report from the Legislature

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse Two years ago, our government Lyle Stewart prepared a 3-year plan MLA, Lumsden-Morse to balance the budget while keeping our investment climate competitive and ensuring long-term economic strength. While we still face challenges, our province is well-positioned to weather them and emerge even stronger. The mid-year budget update shows that Saskatchewan’s plan to get back to a balanced budget remains on track for next year. Our financial and economic outlook have both improved with this year’s projected deficit $17 million lower than expected. While we are on course, there is still work to do.

We continue to manage spending carefully, invest in priorities for Saskatchewan people, shift from our reliance on volatile resource revenue and help keep our economy strong. Saskatchewan’s triple-A credit rating was recently confirmed by Moody’s Investors Service. It is worth noting that when ratings from the three major agencies are combined, our province has the second-highest credit rating in Canada. Saskatchewan is also forecast to have the third-lowest net debt-toGDP ratio in the country. Saskatchewan is also seeing its strongest job growth in four years with 2,500 new jobs in October and nearly 10,000 new jobs since last year. While our economy and finances are improving, we still have the threat of a damaging federal carbon tax, continued sanctions from the United States on our steel and uranium industries,

and a deeply discounted price for our oil caused by a lack of pipelines. Two years have now passed since the Trudeau government rejected the previously approved Northern Gateway pipeline project and since they announced the approval of the Trans Mountain expansion. Fast-forward to today and we have no progress, no pipelines, a regulatory environment that is full of uncertainty, and an oil differential crisis. Your Saskatchewan Party government will keep standing up for Saskatchewan workers and jobs by calling on the federal government to build Trans Mountain and withdraw Bill C-69 so we can get Canada’s pipelines built and Saskatchewan’s resources to market. This week Premier Moe travelled to India to help grow market access for our exports, highlight Saskatchewan’s attractive investment climate, and advance our post-secondary linkages with India – all of which are key to strengthening our economy and the province’s finances. India is one of our province’s most

important trading partners and holds enormous potential for growth. India’s economy and population are booming and Saskatchewan has what India needs to support that growth. Saskatchewan is a world leading producer of sustainable food, fuel and fertilizer, which gives us the unique ability to work with India to enhance its food and energy security. Over the past decade, Saskatchewan has exported more than $11 billion worth of goods to India, including $1.15 billion in 2017, more than any other Canadian province or territory. Saskatchewan was India’s largest supplier of lentils and peas. Potash and uranium are other important exports. Approximately 4,550 Saskatchewan jobs rely on exports to India. At a time when Saskatchewan is on track to achieve a balanced budget in 2019-20, our government’s focus is to continue our work to grow the economy and province, providing the quality programs and services Saskatchewan people expect and deserve.

Hot Pressure Washers!! Renew Saskatchewan’s rural roots

Saskatchewan Leader of the NDP:

Ryan Meili

MLA for Saskatoon Meewasin Of all the conversations I’ve had about climate change, the most eye-opening are Ryan Meili with farmers. They see the changes in growing seaMLA sons, wet years that are wetSaskatoon ter, dry years that are drier, floods and fires and changes Meewasin in weeds and wildlife. They know that we have to act to slow climate change and to adapt to new realities, using the best of crop science to prepare for the inevitable changes in production. Many prairie farmers have also seen the value in participating in the transition to renewable energy. As I travel the province, people proudly share their experiments with wind and solar energy and energy efficient building. And I meet so many more who would like to make these changes, who see it as the right thing to do and a smart way to save money, but who just can’t cover the up-front cost. That gap between those who want to participate and those who can means we’re missing out on a huge opportunity. We have the best conditions to produce solar energy in the entire country. We have abundant possibilities in wind, geothermal, biomass and other emerging technologies, not to mention the energy savings available through retrofitting and energy efficient new buildings. We also

have SaskPower and SaskEnergy: publicly owned crown corporations operating in the public interest that have ability to change the landscape of energy production. Despite these advantages, we’ve fallen behind. The Sask. Party government has failed to act in any meaningful way, opting for expensive, experimental mega-projects like the billion-and-a-half-dollar carbon capture boondoggle, instead of choosing the most affordable and effective ways to reduce emissions. Unlike the current government, Saskatchewan people are ready to act. Over 80 per cent support a transition to renewable energy. But for too many, the cost of change is too high when they’re already having a hard time making ends meet. It’s time for us to show leadership. That is why I’ve proposed a new program: Renew Saskatchewan. It’s a plan to tackle climate change, reduce our power bills, create new jobs and increase our supply of clean energy. With Renew Saskatchewan, your home, farm, business or town hall could be assessed, and you would get a recommendation of the best changes available. This could be new windows, a high-efficiency furnace or a solar array on the roof of the machine shop. Along with that assessment would be an estimate of the time it would take to pay off those improvements out of the savings they produce. Then – and this is the key part, the feature that gets rid of the cost barrier and makes this an opportunity for everyone ­– you would get a loan to cover the cost of the work. This loan would cover the changes needed and you could repay it just by paying your power or gas bill – at a lower rate than you pay today. Once the loan is paid back, your bills would either be next to nothing, or you may even be making money depending on how much energy you’re producing. There are examples in Saskatchewan’s history that show

Livestock producers need prescriptions for most meds By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

New regulations require a sea change in use of antimicrobial medications for EXPRESS livestock, starting December 1. Producers will require a prescription from a veterinarian or pharmacist before buying these medications. No longer will these be sold over the counter. A long list of medications covered by the regulations includes frequently used penicillin and tetracycline, used to treat infections. Before the prescription can be written a vet has to diagnose the animal to ensure the correct medication is used. That also requires producers develop a relationship with a veterinarian. The regulations will create a new layer of costs for producers and particular hardships for producers who are a long distance from vet clinics. The regulations also pertain to commercial feed mixes that include antimicrobial medications in the blend. Growth promotion claims for antimicrobials must also be removed from antimicrobials in feed. Producers mixing their own feed still need a prescription to use the medications in feed. Agriculture has been accused in the development of resistant bacteria with a charge that over-use of antibiotics and residues in beef caused these resistant strains. The new regulations are intended to reduce use of the antimicrobials and improve food safety and to provide importers with more confidence in Canadian food. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency rules were developed after two years work and consultation with industry associations. A 2016 United Nations declaration citing antimicrobials as a human health risk was adopted by Canada in 2015. Without the new regulations, livestock producers faced the option of drastically reduced access to commonly used medications.

Renew Saskatchewan could be implemented effectively. One of the most well-known examples is rural electrification, a signature development brought in under the first CCF government, and Tommy Douglas’ proudest achievement. This was a financing plan where farms paid back the cost of getting transmission lines over time through their power bill. Another very successful program was the Family Farm Improvement Branch, which helped modernize the home quarter, assisting farms to go from relying on outhouses and wells to indoor plumbing and safe drinking water. Both programs started with an assessment of that farm’s needs and included an opportunity to do some of the work themselves and pay less. Renew Saskatchewan will create thousands of local jobs in manufacturing, installation, retrofitting and maintenance. It will reduce power bills immediately and lower them to next to nothing over time. It will create revenue opportunities for farmers, homeowners, small towns and reserves through a new approach to net metering that will allow producers to sell extra electricity back to the grid. Renew will increase Saskatchewan’s supply of clean electrical power and significantly reduce our use of energy and our carbon emissions. And it will create a revolving fund that can be used over and over to support more homes, farms, businesses and take advantage of new opportunities in the fast-developing field of renewable energy. Saskatchewan people have shown time and again that we can face great challenges with creative, homegrown solutions. We can rise to the occasion of today’s great challenge, turning crisis into opportunity as leaders in the transition to a healthy, sustainable economy. Ryan Meili is the leader of the Saskatchewan NDP.

See You Later Alligator

The topic of winter vacations and get-a-ways is a popular conversation in the Geri-Hat-Tricks old-timer hockey team’s dressing room. You can gauge a retired guy’s pensions and investments by the amount of time and money they spend on getby Dale “bushy” Bush ting away. With a simple conversation starter like, “Where do you go?” the answers can be as varied as they are predictable; there seems to be one common thread of similarity…anywhere south! Canadians who travel south in the winter are called Snow-birds and like avians there are preferred areas that seem to attract all types of migratory species. Having sunshine is important for travellers and there seems to be no shortage of sunbeams in Florida. Another thing there is no shortage of in Florida is Canadians, with just over 3.5 million visits last year alone. I wonder if that is because they can speak Canadian eh? While there are many things that can attract the Northern visitor like sun, beaches, and watery beer, there are many dangers that the average touque- wearing Canadian visitor might not realize. There are more

people struck by lightning in Florida than anywhere else in North America, with an average of 7 fatalities and over 50 injuries a year. There is one area in central Florida that has been named “Lightning Alley.” It gets an average of 50 strikes per square mile per year. Wow! But guess what? One of the world’s most popular vacation spots, Disney World, is located right in the middle of Lightning Alley. Thoughtfully, they have installed hundreds of lightning rods throughout the attraction. I wonder if they have signs saying, “You must be this tall to be a lightning rod”. There is another danger that seems to be uniquely Floridian and that is alligator attacks. Since the big water lizards got Florida Wildlife Department’s legal protection, they have drastically increased their population and with more human encroachment into their habitat, the attacks and encounters are increasing drastically. In one 2006 week alone, there were three people killed by gators; who knows how many pets went missing. As both variables increase, gator encounters will as well, but the Wildlife guys are not considering reinstating an alligator hunt so there will be more missing pet posters hung on telephone poles and bulletin boards. If you want to avoid alligators and lighting in Florida, you might want to visit a city, but you might not be any safer on a street in Florida that out in the sticks. Traffic in Florida can be a killer. If you are a pedestri-

an and involved in an accident, there is a 16.9% chance of a fatal event, whereas the American average is a mere 11%. Four out of the five most dangerous pedestrian cities in the USA are in Florida and the most dangerous of those is Orlando. If you think, “the heck with walking, I think I will ride a bike” you might want to reconsider, because Florida leads the USA with an average of 120 cyclist fatalities per year. Numbers may be a reason, but the state has very few bike lanes and paths. To make matters even worse, Florida drivers just don’t like bike riders. I think I would prefer to get my exercise by hailing cabs. Now that I have scared myself with the dangers of Florida, it was never even considered a vacation spot for me and my beautiful bride, because we knew when we retired early, travel was not going to be affordable. We now vacation in our reclining easy chairs and, to be honest, I am sure we can say with no hesitation what so ever, “See you later alligator”.

New trespassing law will require permission to access private land By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

A new trespassing law has been introduced to the Saskatchewan Legislature AGRIMART will make stepping onto rural priEXPRESS that vate property without owner permission a trespassing offence. The new act comes after pressure from rural landowners and the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) for a more stringent law. Under existing law, land owners are required to post no trespassing signs to make entry an offence. The law follows an online government survey with over 1,600 responses..Sixty-three per cent want automatic trespassing offence without the need for posting land Responses included comments that this is common sense and city dwellers do not want people wandering over lawns and flower beds. Thirty-two per cent were opposed to automatic trespassing without permission. Opposing comments noted distant land owners makes it difficult to contact owners and the new law would end snowmobiling in Saskatchewan. Government officials have indicated that an app could be developed to make contact with land owners easier. First Nations see the new trespassing law as an end run around court-won rights to hunt year-round and threaten court action. Meanwhile, a survey by the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation, SARM, Sask. Cattlemen’s Association and Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association shows support for the law with general agreement that permission is needed to enter private land. Division comes on the kind of permission. Hunters believe that verbal permission is appropriate while land owners want written permission. Land owners among the 731 interviews cited crime, bio-security and trespassing as concerns while hunter concerns involved difficulty contacting land owners and the fact a few abusive hunters spoil access for others. Sixty-six per cent of land owners in the survey post their land but 88 per cent of them allow hunting on the land.

Moose Jaw breaks record in donations at this year’s Holiday Train …Over 8,000 lbs of food collected through Good-Buy to Hunger Food Drive Sasha-Gay Lobban

Even though the CP Holiday Train rolled into town earlier than usual this year, locals still got an opportunity to turn out in numbers with their families to see this popular annual tradition on December 6th, in support of the Moose Jaw & District Food Bank. This year marks a record-breaking year for the Holiday Train and the Food Bank, as the community was able to raise over 8,000 lbs of food for our local Food Bank. CP once again teamed up with Golden West Radio and the Moose Jaw CO-OP in hosting the “Good-Buy to Hunger” Food Drive. CO-OP set a goal of selling 800 bags of food this year to donate but surpassed that goal and sold 832 bags (over 8,000 lbs.), compared to just over 5,000 lbs. collected last year. “We want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Canadian Pacific, Moose Jaw CO-OP and the community for raising a record

are very grateful for,” said Deann Little, Assistant Manager at the Food Bank. In addition, CP presented a cheque of $10,000 to the Food Bank. During performances at the Holiday Train, locals continued to donate food and money to the Food Bank on site. As a result, the Food Bank was able to receive an additional 966 lbs of food and $1,033.53 in cash donations. “The Holiday Train was very early this year but we were happy to see that so many people got to come, especially children. This is the first time we were able to see so many kids because it was in the afternoon. We can’t thank the community enough for their continued support,” said Little. The Food Bank also expressed gratitude to Tim Hortons that was on location

handing out hot chocolate and coffee to people as they braved the cold weather. For those who would like to donate to the Food Bank, you can visit 305 Fairford St W to donate cash or by cheque or you can donate online at www.mjfoodbank.org. Over the last two years, the Food Bank has seen a 17 per cent increase in the number of people who use the local Food Bank. So far this year, the MJ Food Bank has distributed 3,968 hampers, with an additional 46 individuals signing up in November, the highest the Food Bank has seen in a month. The Holiday Train saw performances from entertainers Sierra Noble, Terri Clark and Kelly Prescott. The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has since raised more than C$14.5 million and gathered 4.3 million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the United States.

Aircraft training operations show top-notch returns for investors The next provincial budget is being crafted with the target of ending the annual deficit. Better than expected revenues place the deficit at an estimated $348 million for the current year. To meet targets next year government needs to find about $350 million in revenue, program cuts or a combination of the two. A few pages at the back of the annual budget, list by category the revenues the province loses from various exemptions. In total, the Saskatchewan Government misses $3 billion in annual taxes from a variety of tax exemptions. Wow! you say. Balancing the budget could be easy. One expects government officials go over these exemptions with a fine-toothed comb looking for more revenues. Tax credits account for just over $1.4 billion of lost revenues. The basic personal income tax credit costs the treasury $1.05 billion. Other tax credits range from dependent child ($105 million) to charitable contributions ($48 mil-

lion) to first-time home-buyers ($5.9 million) They are established policy with little quarrel about the need. Corporate income tax reductions cost the government $484 million with the small business tax rate costing $422 million. Income tax deductions cost $540 million in lost taxes with pension plan deductions totalling about $245 million. Encouraging retirement planning is considered a laudable social goal. Exemptions from the provincial sales tax cost nearly $900 million a year. The exemptions include groceries, $164 million; prescription drugs, $45 million; personal services, $46 million; electricity, $71 million; natural gas, $24 million. Almost $400 million of the tax exemptions go to agriculture. The tax exemption for fuel, fertilizer and seed costs the province $211 million taxes a year, while machinery parts cost $86 million.

A more recent exemption on agriculture insurance, health and life insurance reduces taxes by $120 million. As a farm-raised resident Yours Truly has always had a soft spot for agriculture but the tax exemptions for farmers seem unfair to other taxpayers. What other category of small business receives such generous tax breaks? What is the social/economic goal supporting these exemptions? At one time when agriculture was the main industry in the province, the exemptions may have been warranted, particularly on the basis of helping family farms. In today’s world where larger farms dominate, where multi-million enterprises are common, justifying the tax exemptions becomes more difficult. Agriculture accounts for 7.3 per cent of Saskatchewan gross domestic product yet receives 13 per cent of all tax exemptions. The mineral industry, in deep recession, makes up almost 19 per cent of Saskatchewan Gross Domestic yet receives hardly anything in tax breaks. The construction industry, facing steep decline, represents 7.2 per cent of Saskatchewan Gross Domestic but receives no tax exemption, other than small business rates. In fairness to all taxpayers, the exemptions for agriculture should be thoroughly reviewed with respect to agriculture paying a fair share of taxes and gradual reduction of exemptions or base them on a means test.

The club has given us tremendous support in terms of backing us up and going on this journey together. To know that we have the community behind us is very important for us.

There’s still plenty of time to bake some of the favourite recipes that are usually reserved for Christmas celebrations (even though they taste just fine at other times of the year.) This week’s recipes are ones that family members and a friend usually made during this season. ••• Christmas Shortbread Slice 1 cup margarine or butter 1/4 cup sugar 2 cups flour 1 1/2 cups coconut 2/3 cup chopped red and green cherries 1/4 cup golden raisins 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans 1 can Eagle Brand milk 1/2 tsp. almond extract Cream margarine and sugar. Blend in flour until mixture resembles crumbs. Pat evenly into a greased 9x9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients. Spread evenly over shortbread base. Bake an additional 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool thoroughly. Cut into bars, using a sharp knife that has been heated slightly over the steam from a boiling kettle. Freezes well. •••

Looking (and listening) for the positives in a blackout by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor In the wake of last week’s power blackout, this article was close to not being written. You don’t realize how much you need something until that something is not there. Last week, during our six-hour blackout, I was thinking about the inconvenience of not having power. How am I going to do my patient files? How long are my batteries going to last for my computer and my phone? How were we going to feed the kids tonight? While for some it may have seemed like an eternity, the blackout really did not last that long. Other than

Place coconut in a bowl then drop marshmallow mixture into coconut by teaspoonful. Toss until coated. Chill until firm. Store in refrigerator in a covered container. Yields about 4 dozen cookies. ••• Raspberry Jam Tarts 1/2 cup soft butter 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 cup short, sweet coconut 1 tsp. vanilla 1/4 cup raspberry jam sweet tart shells Cream butter and sugar then add eggs, vanilla and coconut.

the house being a few degrees cooler, we all survived. One thing I took notice of during that time was how unbelievably quiet it can get when we have no power. In both my office, and our house, there is an HVAC fan that runs continuously. With it always being there, you get used to it and don’t notice it until it’s gone. During the blackout, pretty much all background noise was gone. The phrase, “the silence was so deafening”, has real meaning. For a while I couldn’t decide whether I liked it or not. At times it was soothing and at times it made me feel a bit uncomfortable. I have read some research looking at the positives of having “white noise” in the background. Better sleep for some, even improved memory for others. I am very much a believer in what is good for us is what Mother Nature gives us. Before the age of technology, before man had electricity, we had much more silence in our lives. Mother Nature gave us silence well before man created background noise. To

Cream butter and sugar and beat until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well-blended. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Mix well. Drop by tablespoon onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving several inches space between cookies. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-15 minutes. Cool on racks. On the flat side, spread vanilla frosting onto half of each cookie and chocolate frosting onto the other half. Makes about 3 dozen cookies. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

me, we are meant to have more silence in our lives than we do today. Other research contradicts the benefits of white noise. Apparently complete silence can lead to the brain creating more neurons (in mice at least). This brain “growth” is thought to counteract any degeneration that may occur either due to aging or the daily stresses we tend to put on ourselves. When there is lack of external stimulus, such as noise, our brains automatically revert to a period of self-reflection. Along with sleep, self-reflection is considered to be restorative as well. It is this self-reflection that acts as a sort of “reset” for our brains. The experience of going through a blackout can make one re-evaluate what is important in one’s life. For some, it may be having a generator all gassed up and ready for the next one. For me, it’s reminder that maybe I need to shut things off more often than I do.

Warriors pick up points in two of three games Tribe fall in overtime to Calgary, split weekend set with Saskatoon Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors gave up four goals in a span of just over seven minutes in the second period on their way to a 5-3 loss to the Saskatoon Blades at Mosaic Place on Dec. 8, marking one of the few times this Western Hockey League season they’ve seen such a thorough collapse in such a short period of time. Considering the Tribe were coming off a 3-2 comeback win over those very same Blades a night earlier in Saskatoon, the potential for success was obviously there, just not if the team lets up in any way, especially against a club they’re battling with for position in the standings. The Warriors opened the week with a 6-5 overtime loss to the Calgary Hitmen. They now hold a 16-7-4-1 record, good enough for fourth place in the Eastern Conference, two points back of the Blades and three back of Red Deer. “We’ve battled and been in most games and tonight we let it get away from us in the second,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter. “They’re a team that decided to try and win the game in the second and they did, they were probably disappointed after the first period and thought they were going to come out and compete harder and

Tristan Langan got one back for the Tribe in the third, and despite having the goaltender pulled for over four minutes to close out the game, that would be as close as they’d get. “Once you get to Christmas and the New Year, teams start to dig in and start to solidify and push for positions in the playoffs,” Hunter said. “We have to learn from those moments; you can’t give a team too much of a momentum swing in a period or a game and that’s what we did there, being outshot 15-5 and giving up too many scoring opportunities. But lesson learned and we move ahead.” Riley McKay opened scoring for Saskatoon five minutes into the game before Tate Popple replied for the Warriors 35 seconds later. Keenan Taphorn then scored with just over two minutes left in the frame to put Moose Jaw ahead 2-1. Brodan Salmond got the start and made 17 saves for the Warriors before giving way to Adam Evanoff, who turned aside three shots in the final frame. Moose Jaw fired 28 at Blades goaltender Dorrin Luding. One night earlier in Saskatoon, Langan scored on the power play late in the second to tie the game and reigning WHL rookie of the month Brayden Tracey scored the game winner midway through the third as

the Warriors took their comeback win. Paterson and Eric Florchuk scored for the Blades before the game was 10 minutes old; Luke Ormsby got one back for the Warriors at the 12:28 mark of the first. Salmond made 33 saves in the win, Nolan Maier stopped 22 in the loss. The Warriors opened the week with their high-scoring barnburner against the Hitmen, which saw Keenan Taphorn score with 4:01 remaining in regulation to tie the game 5-5. Ryan Jevne then scored 1:16 into overtime to give Calgary the win. Jett Woo – who would finish the game with a goal and three assists – Langan, Josh Brook and Luke Ormsby all scored for the Warriors, who trailed 3-2 after the first and 5-4 through two. Jevne, Joel Craven, Daniel Baker, Tyler Preziuso and James Hamblin had the goals in regulation for Calgary. Evanoff made 40 saves for Moose Jaw, Jordan Hollett 40 for Calgary. The Warriors are back in action Dec. 14 when they travel to Regina before hosting the Pats on Dec. 15. (7 p.m., Mosaic Place) to close out their pre-Christmas schedule. **** Moose Jaw Warriors general manager Alan Millar had a busy day on Dec. 3 as he pulled the string on a pair of trades. The Warriors first acquired forward Kjell Kjemhus, 17, from the Prince George Cougars in exchange for a seventh round pick in 2020. Kjemhus, 5-foot-10 and 186 pounds, hails from Grande Prairie, Alta. and had two assists in five games with the Cougars this season. Last season he played in 25 games with Prince George and had two goals and four points. Later in the day, the Warriors picked up Luke Ormsby from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a sixth round pick in 2022. A 5-foot-10, 180-pound right winger, Ormsby had three goals and six points in 25 games with the Silvertips. He was chosen in the ninth round of the 2014 Bantam Draft and in 150 games had 11 goals and 24 points. Both players took the ice for their first game on Dec. 5 against the Medicine Hat Tigers, with Ormsby scoring in his debut with the Tribe.

Another tough weekend for Generals

Local squad takes pair of losses in Midget AAA action despite solid play Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Normally, if a team sparks three breakaways, a half-dozen two-on-ones and numerous odd-man rushes, things are going to look good on the scoreboard at the end of the day. With the Moose Jaw Generals and the way things are going for the local Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League team this season, that kind of performance apparently isn’t nearly enough. The Generals carried the play five-on-five and generated scoring chances galore against the Prince Albert Mintos but were rewarded with a 6-0 loss Sunday at Mosaic Place. That came on the heels of a 4-1 defeat to the Yorkton Maulers the previous night, leaving the Generals with a 7-16-2-1 record and in 10th place in the 12-team league, nine points out of a playoff spot. “It’s very frustrating,” Generals head coach Ray Wareham said. “I can’t imagine what the kids feel like, but for the most part they’re keeping their heads up... but when you get two-on-ones and breakaways and you don’t get anything over and over again, that’s really tough. It just that nothing is going for us.” It’s not for a lack of effort, either. Wareham admits that he and his coaching staff have pretty much drained the playbook trying to find positive results. “We’ve tried everything; I mean absolutely everything,” he said. “I’ve personally never been through anything like this, as a player or a coach, how things just won’t turn out for us. I’ve tried pushing buttons, we’ve asked the guys to do different things, but noth-

ing works. They seem happy and are trying to stay upbeat, but it’s just not translating on the ice.” That certainly was the case on Dec. 9, where the Generals actually outshot Prince Albert 30-29 but gave up four power play goals despite that advantage. Gabe Klassen had a hat trick for the Mintos; Chase Bertholet picked up five assists. “It seems like every little mistake we make ends up

in the net,” Wareham said. “Then we get a break and can’t get anything... you look at today, our penalty kill, which has been good lately, let us down. But we had just as many chances five-on-five and couldn’t get anything to show for it.” The Generals’ Jaxson Taupert made 23 saves in the loss, Spencer Welke stopped 30 shots for the shutout. Against the Maulers, Moose Jaw finished the game with a 36-26 advantage on the shot clock but only managed a second-period goal from Ben Wourms-Rowe. Reece Hodson had 22 saves in goal for the Generals. As tough as things have gone for the local squad, Wareham remains optimistic that a sudden turn could be on the way – especially if his charges keep working towards the future. “I just told the guys, the thing you have to do is just try and continue to get better each day,” Wareham said. “You can’t worry so much about wins and losses right now, you just have to focus on getting better each day and the ultimate goal is to play junior. It’s our job to get you there, no one likes losing, but as long as you keep improving and give yourself the best chance to move on next year, that should be their focus. And if they do that hopefully the wins will start coming.” The Generals are back in action on Saturday, Dec. 15 when they travel to Swift Current before hosting the Beardy’s Blackhawks on Sunday, Dec. 16 (1:30 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Baseball and hockey legend recognized for standout career Like any proud son or daughter, Cathy Hunchuk has told her children many stories about the athletic exploits of their grandfather – tales of his playing days in hockey and baseball, his accomplishments on the diamond and on the ice, all the usual interesting stuff. Her father, and the youngsters’ grandfather, is none other than Moose Jaw sports legend George Hunchuk, an athlete so prolific from the 1940s right through to the 1970s that he ended up playing professional hockey and actually cracked the ranks of the Major League Baseball minor league system. “It’s so fun to share the stories with our kids, because they just knew him as Grandpa,” Cathy Hunchuk said. “They didn’t realize that Grandpa was a phenomenal athlete and just how much he accomplished back when he was playing.” The Moose Jaw sports world most certainly knows and remembers those stories – so much so that when the selection committee for the Moose Jaw and District Sports Hall of Fame were reviewing potential inductees for 2018, Hunchuk’s inclusion was an absolute no-brainer. The dual sport star was among six inductees enshrined on the Wall of Fame in Mosaic Place during the Hall’s annual induction ceremony. “This is completely special; it’s beyond words, in some respects, because he loved Moose Jaw,” Hunchuk said. “Of all the Halls of Fames to be inducted into, this is it. In his words, it would have meant the most.” Hunchuk wasted little time finding sports success, as he was a member of the 1944 juvenile provincial champion Moose Jaw Monarchs and then joined the Moose Jaw Canucks for their

Hunter set to lead Team Canada

Warriors coach gearing up for selection camp, world junior tournament Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

After months of waiting and preparing, it’s time to get down to business for Tim Hunter and National Junior Team. Hunter -- the Moose Jaw Warriors head coach who will serve the same role for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships in Vancouver and Victoria beginning Dec. 26 – and his Hockey Canada scouting staff have whittled down the vast pool of prospective players to 34, who will now go through the nerve-wracking process known as the Team Canada selection camp. The camp runs from Dec. 10-14 in Victoria, followed by three exhibition game against the Usports All-Stars, after which the final roster will be trimmed to 22 players. Just getting to the point Team Canada was quite the challenge, “Yesterday was really exciting because we finally had the players in place for our camp and that’s the start of the next phase, which is picking the team and getting down to the 22 guys who will represent Canada,” Hunter said during a recent press conference outside the Warriors dressing room. “So, it’s exciting and we’re just looking for five days in Vancouver to pick the team and go after the gold medal.” With so many quality players to choose from, Hunter and Hockey Canada have been hard at work making sure the best players for the job were brought into camp. Warriors general manager Alan Millar was also part of the process, working with Hockey Canada head scout Brad McEwen to make the selections. “They watch a lot of hockey and it’s really hard to pick the hairs to select the best 34 players in Canada because there’s

Canadian Press photo. a lot of good hockey players in Canada,” Hunter said. “It’s a tough job and I’m glad it’s not my job.” The scouting staff would likely say the same about Hunter when it comes to the next phase of the World Junior team process – choosing the final team and, eventually, making cuts. “We had a criteria of players we want to invite and will be at the selection camp, now we have to split them and find the guys who can fit into the way we want to play,” Hunter explained when describing the process. “That will be more my job than anyone else’s job, trying to fit the guys in and let them play to their role and their identity. We want them to play the same way and if they do, they’ll be on the team. We have 34 guys who are capable of doing that.” Moose Jaw Warriors fans who’ve seen the 2018-19 edition of the team will likely be familiar with what they see from Team Canada. Hunter plans to take many of the systems currently in place on the

local Western Hockey League squad and implement them on the National Team – the kind of experiment most coaches would kill for given the quality of players at his disposal. “I’ve done a lot of things here in Moose Jaw that I’ve kind of garnered from Hockey Canada and things that we’ve learned over the two years with (Team Canada coaches) Dominic Ducharme and Joel Bouchard,” Hunter said. “Some have worked, some haven’t and that’s part of coaching, being a forward thinker or innovator and that’s what I try and do. I’ve had some success with it and we’ve had some success with it here in Moose Jaw this season and it’s been nice to see us heading in the right direction and it’s the right type of hockey to play. That’s what we’ll be playing at the World Junior Championship.” The end result? Speed, speed and more speed. “We want a team that’s tough to play against and a team that plays fast every-

where, not just with the puck, but without the puck,” Hunter continued. “And a team that thinks the game very fast as well... it’ll be trying to gain speed in the game everywhere, whether it’s three, five, seven, 10 per cent, it’ll be hard to dictate, but that’s what we’re going to do, we’re going to try and play the game faster everywhere and that’s not always easy to do but we’re sure going to try.” Hunter played his cards close to his chest when it came to suggesting which players might be on the team – even going so far as to say standout defenceman and Warriors captain Josh Brook is simply one of 12 players vying for a spot, even if he has played exceptionally impressively through the first two months of the season. One thing is certain in this time of uncertainty, though: whoever gets a chance to where the Maple Leaf in Vancouver and Victoria beginning Dec. 26 against Denmark will be in for a thrill of a lifetime – something Hunter knows all about after winning gold as an assistant coach in 2018 and silver in 2017. “It’s a challenge all these young men dream of, waking up on Boxing Day and being on the World Junior team and competing with a chance to win a gold medal,” Hunter said. “That’s a challenge we all want because we want the gold medal. I don’t look at it as pressure at all, I look at it as if we want to be able to play at home, that sea of fans in Toronto and Montreal when we won silver. “Our players really feed off that environment and energy from the fans, so I know Vancouver and Victoria will be there to support us and we’re looking forward to being in that environment.”

Tribe captain a likely lock for spot on Team Canada blueline after solid start to season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Josh Brook has already donned a Team Canada jersey but this next opportunity is something completely different. Playing in the World Hockey Challenge as a 16-year-old and World Under-18 championship at 17 is a life-long dream come to fruition but this week, the Warriors captain will be in Victoria, looking to crack the roster of the National Junior Team and represent his country on the greatest stage for junior hockey in the world – and hopefully make some incredible on-ice memories of his own. “I’ve watched pretty much every single year from when I can remember,” Brook said of the World Juniors. “Jordan Eberle’s goal against the Russians (in 2009) is the biggest one I can remember... the first time I watched it I said to myself, I want to play on that team and in that tournament, so it’s been a long time.” Brook heads into the event with an undeniable inside track on cracking the roster. His play this season has been nothing short of exemplary, boosted by a fully healed wrist injury and a full off-season of training with the Montreal Canadiens organization, who drafted him in the second round, 56th overall. Brook’s nine goals and 31 points are good enough for second in defenceman scoring in the Western Hockey League, six points back of fellow camp invitee Ty Smith of the Spokane

Chiefs. Team Canada also has only two players returning from last year’s gold-medal winning squad, neither of them defencemen – Maxime Comtois of QMJHL Drummondville and Alex Formenton of OHL London. Add in, the head coach of the team is none other than Tim Hunter, head coach of the Moose Jaw Warriors, and Brook’s chances get more hopeful. But the World Junior selection camp has long been known for humbling even league-scoring leaders, so Brook knows there’s still lots to be done until his dream is realized. “You just play the best you can in camp, stick to your game since that’s what they chose you for,” Brook said. “I’m just going to play the role I’ve been given to the best of my ability....work hard in practice, just touch everything up, make sure I’m making passes quick and hard on the tape, make sure I get lots of rest and fluids, everything I need to be at my best and make the team.” “It feels good to have a chance, but the work still isn’t done yet and there’s a lot of work to be done to make that team.” If everything works out according to plan, Brook will take the ice at Rogers Arena in Vancouver when Canada opens its 2019 World Junior Championship against

Moose Jaw Warriors captain Josh Brook is taking part in the Team Canada selection camp for the World Junior championship this week. Denmark on Boxing Day. Asked what would be his biggest moment from that day, his answer was predictable. “Probably just stepping on the ice there with the jersey,” he said. “I’ve represented Canada before, but this is the big one. So just stepping on the ice for the first time in Vancouver is going to be incredible.”

Cyclones looking forward to banner season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

This is the season the Central Cyclones senior boys basketball team has been looking forward to. A high-scoring, defensively sound starting corps featuring five Grade 12s, with a near-equal complement of talent coming off the bench. This kind of talent and depth hasn’t been seen in the Moose Jaw High School Basketball League in, many years, if at all. It showed in their first game of the season in league play when Central rolled to a 122-41 win over the Peacock Tornadoes on Dec. 4. Head coach Ryan Boughen is hoping it’ll show even more so as the season progresses and the Cyclones look to live up to one of the most promising seasons in decades. “We’re really fortunate; this is something we’ve been building to and we’re looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish,” Boughen said. “We’re going to be looking to push ourselves and test ourselves and see what we can do and hopefully that makes for a really good season.” Central opened the season at the prestigious Bowlt Classic in Saskatoon during the Dec. 1 weekend and won their opener against Saskatoon Aden Bowman 89-58. That created a match-up with Saskatoon Holy Cross – the eventual tournament champions – and a 76-57 loss. Given the Crusaders’ stature as one of the top 5A teams in the province, the loss was more of a learning experience for Central, an example of where they need to get to in order to be at that level. “It was really good for us, they played a physical game and had a couple of big guys inside who really dominated

the offensive board,” Boughen explained. “But we think if we play them again we can make some adjustments... I was talking to the organizer of the Leboldus tournament and he was saying he wasn’t sure if he wanted us in the same bracket as Holy Cross again and I was like ‘no, no we want to play those guys again’. So hopefully we get another shot and we’ll see what we can do.” The Cyclones have taken the unique approach of seeking out elite level tournaments throughout the season, including a stop at the Harry Ainlay Tri-Province Tournament in Edmonton during the Feb. 15 weekend. “We’re trying to stretch a bit with the tournaments we’re going to this year, testing ourselves against some different teams,” Boughen said. “It’s all part of developing as much as we can making sure we’re playing our best basketball when it counts.” That’ll include keeping things on as even a keel as pos-

LARGE

sible in local action – if the results from opening night are any indication, motivation will be something the Cyclones will need to keep an eye on. “We haven’t played everyone yet, and Peacock lost some really good Grade 12s from last season, but if this is how the league is this year we’ll still be working on things,” Boughen said. “We’ve set some defensive goals and things like that, and we’re pushing ourselves in practice as much as we can. Now we just have to keep improving as much as we can and see what happens.” **** The Peacock Toilers also find themselves off to an impressive start in senior girls action, having reached the playoffs at the Bowlt Classic and then downed Central 82-65 in their season opener. Peacock posted a 2-1 record in the round robin, defeating Swift Current 80-64 and Aden Bowman 52-37 to go along with a 79-64 loss to Saskatoon Centennial. That saw them advance to the bronze medal game where they dropped a 71-36 decision to Holy Cross. In other boys league play from opening week, the Vanier Vikings also got off to a solid start as they rolled to a 10739 win over Briercrest Christian Academy. Javan Panko scored 28 points for Vanier to lead all scorers, Riley Follensbee added 23, Musa Peter led BCA with 11 points. In the lone girls league game Dec. 6, Melissa Ellis scored 26 points as the BCA Cougars took a 67-37 win over the Vanier Spirits. Brooklyn Martens added 16 points for the Cougars, Emma Carter picked up 10. Vanier was led by Trinity Roberts with nine points.

Report: Maria had $43B impact on Puerto Rico’s economy By Danica Coto | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico _ A report from Puerto Rico’s government says Hurricane Maria had a $43 billion impact on the U.S. territory’s economy, $1 billion more than originally estimated. The Puerto Rico Planning Board’s report says its calculations took into account millions of dollars received so far in federal hurricane recovery funds and insurance money.

Overall, the board found that the capital of San Juan was among the six most affected cities on the island after the Category 4 storm hit in September 2017, causing more than an estimated $100 billion in damage. Puerto Rico economist Jose Caraballo said in a phone interview Monday that federal aid and insurance payouts so far have covered only 24 per cent of

the losses reported. The government said losses for the private sector alone totalled $30 billion, with manufacturing reporting the highest loss of income and agriculture among the highest damage to infrastructure and equipment. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Gluts, price differential: Six things to know about Canada’s oil price gap EDMONTON _ The Alberta government has ordered a mandatory cut to crude oil production next year to deal with historically low prices being paid for Canadian oil. Here are six things to know about Canada’s resource: Light or heavy: Each type of oil around the world has its own price. New-York-traded West Texas Intermediate (WTI), delivered at Cushing, Okla., is the benchmark price for light crude oil in North America. Western Canadian Select (WCS) is the reference price for heavy crude oil from the oilsands delivered at Hardisty, Alta.

Price differential: Canada’s heavy crude usually trades at a discount because of refining and transportation costs, so a price gap or differential is typical between WTI and WCS. Record gap: The differential is usually between US$10 to US$15 per barrel. The biggest gap _ US$52 per barrel _ was recorded in October. Experts say the extreme discount happened due to a reliance on high-cost transportation _ rail and truck _ instead of new pipelines. The glut: Alberta says about 190,000 barrels of raw crude oil and bitumen are being produced each day

that can’t be shipped out. Roughly 35 million barrels, about twice the normal level, are in storage. Cutting production: The province has ordered the output of raw crude oil and bitumen to be reduced by 8.7 per cent, or 325,000 barrels per day, starting in January. As the excess storage clears, the reduction is expected to drop to 95,000 barrels a day until the end of next December. The move is expected to narrow the differential by at least $4 per barrel. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Saskatchewan introduces mandatory semi-truck driver training after Broncos crash By Ryan McKenna | THE CANADIAN PRESS

REGINA _ The Saskatchewan government is introducing mandatory training for semi-truck drivers almost eight months after the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. Starting in March, drivers seeking a Class 1 commercial licence will be required to undergo at least 121.5 hours of training. Joe Hargrave, minister for Saskatchewan Government Insurance, said the crash _ that killed 16 people and injured 13 when the junior hockey team’s bus and a semi collided at a rural intersection _ influenced Monday’s announcement. Drivers will be instructed for 47 hours in a classroom, 17.5 hours in a yard and 57 hours behind the wheel as part of the new program. There’s also a 12-month safety monitoring program for drivers now in effect. Previously, Saskatchewan Government Insurance accredited driving schools

but training was not mandatory. Ontario is currently the only province that has mandatory truck driver training consisting of 103.5 hours. Hargrave said Saskatchewan used Ontario’s training guide but modified it to give drivers more time behind the wheel and air-brake training. Alberta is making driver training with a standardized curriculum for new commercial truckers and bus drivers mandatory as of March 1. All new commercial carriers in Alberta will have to prove they comply with transportation safety regulations before they start operating. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer accused Trudeau of pledging $50 million in a tweet to impress a TV personality. Toronto-based lawyer and former Liberal staffer Warren Kinsella tweeted that Education Cannot Wait is a worthy cause, but called Trudeau’s tweet an ``appalling’’ way for the decision to be communicated, ``to a American-based TV host, no less.’’ © 2018 The Canadian Press WALMART CORRECTION NOTICE Flyer ending Dec. 5th, 2018.

City Hall Council Notes Moose Jaw city council will be looking to work with and around a proposed 3.82 municipal tax increase during their upcoming budget deliberations after city administration revealed the preliminary budget for 2019 at a special meeting on Dec. 3. That’s after deciding in the spring to move to a priority-based budget process, which is expected to substantially change not only the way the city goes about developing the budget, but what programs and services receive the most support regardless of past decisions. “It’s a change from a ‘what is needed’ approach to a ‘what can be accomplished with available funding’ approach, and in essence it’s to spend within the municipality’s means of finance,” explained Brian Acker, City of Moose Jaw director of financial services. “So, in essence, it’s a complete shift in the way of thinking from the past when budgets were based strictly on ‘this is what we need in order to provide whatever it is’.” Council gave direction to the priority budget process this past spring, with city administration working from there to bring forward the preliminary plan. Prioritizing programs and services is based upon a variety of criteria, including how essential that program is, the impact related to citizens and alignment with the city’s goals and strategic plans. “It really comes down to doing your pri-

orities well, which means possibly not getting to the lesser priorities... Some things you can’t do and we can’t be all things to all people,” Acker said. “The priorities we have we need to do well.” Each budget submission included information on program and service evaluations, creating a numerical value out of 100 supporting each item. For example, the fire service budget presentation saw providing medical support in the health region receive an 88.6 score, public education an 88.0 score, the dispatch service an 86.8 score and fire suppression and prevention an 85.8 priority score when it comes to areas of focus and improvement for 2019. The end result for the 2019 operating budget is a revenue increase of 0.2 per cent and expenditure increase of 2.5 per cent to maintain the same, current programs and services, resulting in a 3.82 per cent increase to balance the budget. The operating budget consists of the general revenue fund, transit and para-transit, waterworks, sanitary sewer and solid waste. General revenue and transit directly impact potential tax increases; utilities do not as their costs are funded from fees charged for their use. Acker pointed to the municipal tax levy as a major reason for the lower revenue projection, as funds from the levy actually fell 0.27 per cent, down $72,511 from last year. Considering taxation accounts

for 57 per cent of operating budget revenues, that represents a significant shortfall. “We’ve had steady growth in the tax levy over the years, but unfortunately in 2019 we’re not seeing that growth,” Acker said. “We actually have a small reduction in our overall tax revenues we expect to see and that’s due to our assessment just not growing at the level we hoped and as well the significant commercial appeal losses we’ve suffered.” Appeals losses totalled $130,837 for 2018, adding to the total of lost tax revenue through assessments of $1.3 million since 2013. As for expenditures, the general government – covering the functions at City Hall proper – saw an increase of $291,17, while police services seeks an additional $458,373, leading all departmental increases. Presentations, discussions and revisions to the various departmental and organizational budgets are ongoing, with meetings slated throughout December. **** The capital budget – which provides funds for the city to undertake major construction and rehabilitation projects – covers a five-year period from 2019 to 2023 and features total spending of $240,562,577 allocated to areas such as transportation ($47M), storm sewers

($4.7M), waterworks utility ($119M), sanitary sewer ($32M) and the solid waste utility ($11M). The current capital budget funding level sits at $138.1 million for the five years; $30 million in borrowing is planned for 2019 and further borrowing of $45 million in the future combined with reserves and sort-term self-financing will provide cashflow for planned projects. Unfortunately, the general capital reserve – providing for the upkeep and replacement of core infrastructure such as streets, storm sewers and parks and recreation – found itself overwhelmed by expenditure requests, which resulted in the city making a series of cuts to the 2019 portion of the budget. That included $550,000 less for street paving, $400,000 less for traffic control upgrades, $650,000 for structure upgrades and the reallocation of the $226,000 Kinsmen Sportplex upgrade to 2020. Seeing as the work removed from 2019 will need to take place in the future and expenditure requests are constantly increasing, additional funding will be needed to be found. City administration recommended further exploration of provincial and federal grants – of which Moose Jaw currently receives very few – as a potential solution for the shortfall.

Riverview Collegiate hosts Personal Wellness Conference for students Sasha-Gay Lobban

Creating awareness about personal wellness is an important goal at Riverview Collegiate. On Wednesday, December 5, all students at the school got an opportunity to learn the importance of personal wellness and its benefits, while having fun at the same time. Student support staff at the school hosted a Personal Wellness Conference which took place throughout the day, engaging grades 9 to 12 students in an activity-filled day, focusing on their personal well-being. They were grouped into four sessions; two information-based and the others activity-based. The sessions were led by local volunteers who passed on first-hand information to students and conducted active sessions which included workouts, dancing and general fun ac-

tivities. The four different sessions were Dance Fitness with Kyra, which had students dancing up a storm while working out; My Own Worst Enemy Fitness with Brandi doing Pound Fitness, which featured workouts with drumsticks, and two different information sessions on personal wellness strategies led by Prairie South School Division #210 personnel. Heather Miller, Student Support Teacher at Riverview Collegiate said the overall goal of the conference is to create awareness of different ways to be healthy; making healthy choices, how to cope under stressful situations and having an active lifestyle. “One of our learning improvement teams is focusing on personal wellness, healthy coping strategies and general wellness for students. This conference is a way of bringing that into focus. It has been well received by the students and everyone has been enjoying themselves while learning at the same time,” Miller said. “Our main goal is to promote personal activities through healthy activity-led sessions as well as information sessions. We loved that the students enjoyed the sessions. It was really fun for them because it is not just learning in a classroom setting but more of a relaxed, fun session which allowed them to do high energy activities.” Student, Sasha Hleck, grade 12 student at Riverview said she appreciated the awareness the activities brought to personal wellness, especially when it comes to managing stress. “The sessions we engaged in were really good.

Dance Fitness with Kyra had students working up a sweat as they enjoyed dancing and working out. They provided us with pointers on how to cope with stress, one of the main topics that was highlighted. I think we’re taught about it throughout our whole high school experience but now that talking about it is becoming more of a popular thing, everyone is recognizing more often how to deal with stress and these sessions, especially the information sessions that bring it into more focus,” she said. “I think it is great for the school to make this effort to do this because it is good for us to be educated and know what to do if we’re ever in a situation where we’d need to use these skills. I think it’s just good skills to know throughout life and to know how to make sure you’re taking care of yourself.” Riverview Collegiate will be hosting another Personal Conference in the spring of 2019.

Southern Saskatchewan has been experiencing a weather phenomenon with the recent hoar frost or rime ice that has blanketed a lot of the province. Thick frost covering anything in the open air has created endless opportunities for take breathtaking family, landscape or wildlife pictures. The frost was so thick; it ended up wreaking havoc, as many of us know, by causing widespread power outages throughout the province several times. I trust you all survived and were able to stay warm. Thankfully, my family was prepared. Hubby is very practical and self-sufficient in many ways so I lean heavily on his problem-solving abilities. I, too, have been working towards stocking a better emergency kit than I have in the past. It is so easy to get caught up in our life of ease and not be prepared for such an emergency as we just had. No matter how easy it is to put our head in the sand or think someone else will rescue us, it is foolish to not be prepared. Oh wise one, do what you must do to prepare yourself. There are several ways to be prepared for an emergency at any given moment; physically, mentally and spiritually. Use common sense and build a small 72 hour emergency kit. This should include non-perishables, blankets, water, and a heat source if possible (research ‘terracotta heaters’) and then gather additional personal supplies you deem necessary to survive for several days. Proverbs gives multitudes of wisdom about planning ahead, using wisdom and being prepared. Also, get your vehicle stocked with the essentials such as a flashlight with batteries, a few protein bars/granola bars, a change of clothing, first aid kit, a shovel, blanket, candle and matches and more. You may find further information on the internet called “Emergency Preparedness Guide.” Secondly, prepare mentally. Develop some mental toughness to be able endure an emergency without a lot of stress and drama. Rehearse what you would do ahead of time to be prepared if you needed to leave or stay bunked in at a moment’s notice. Build up your stamina to withstand hard situations and become strong in the Lord, meditating on His strength and renewing your mind. Thirdly, stay spiritually alert! I was reminded of the parable in Matthew of the Wise and Foolish Virgins. This is a warning to us to all be ready for Jesus’ return. The time is condensing and the world is shifting into preparation for the end-time harvest. We must be spending time with Jesus, keeping our lamps full of oil, and being ready in season and out of season to listen for His leading. “Be prepared for action at a moment’s notice. Be like the servants who anticipate their master’s return from a wedding celebration. They are ready to unlock and open the door for him at a moment’s notice.” (Luke 12) The head-in-the-sand scenario is no excuse. The Word of God warns us to be alert, aware and listening to our Good Shepherd. As we spend time in His Word, listening to preaching and teaching, talking to Him throughout the day and developing a deep relationship with Him, He will lead us and guide us in the way we should go. Deciding to wait and give our lives to Jesus when He returns will be too late. Don’t be left behind! Make a quality decision to be prepared spirit, soul and body. Do whatever it takes to be ready, dear reader. Scripture references: Matthew 25:1-13, Luke 12:35-36

William Glen Wiggins William Glen Wiggins, 78, of Moose Jaw, SK passed away on December 2, 2018 surrounded by much of his family. He was born near Manor, SK to Art and Mona (Kyle) Wiggins and was raised on a farm without electricity or plumbing. He grew up riding his horse to Manor school, doing his share of chores, and enjoying life on the prairie. With adventure on his mind, Glen joined the RCAF at the age of 17. He worked as an Airframe Technician on a variety of aircraft and was stationed in Ottawa, Marville France, Lahr Germany, Trenton and Moose Jaw. He most enjoyed the camaraderie of his fellow Air Force personnel and participated in volleyball and hockey throughout his career. The Air Force also offered him the opportunity to meet his wife of 55 years, Vicki (Eidsforth) while stationed at RCAF Uplands Ottawa. Glen will be remembered for his wit, love of family, and his creative flair. If he wasn’t playing with a grandchild, he’d also be tinkering in his workshop, building another model airplane, or recycling scraps to make some delightful object. Not only that, he was an excellent ping pong and foosball player who consistently left younger players dumbfounded at his skill. Glen was preceded in death by his parents, sister Shirley and brother Dale. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Vicki and his children Michael (Lisa) and Shirley (Kelly). Glen leaves behind eight grandchildren, Tenia (Sean), Christian (Desiree), Kylie, Ryland, Logan, Cameron, Grace and Emma. He will also be missed by his great-grandson James, his brother Ken (Chris), sister-in-law Gaye and brother-in-law Bernie (Mary), and numerous nieces and nephews.

A private interment will be held at Rosedale Cemetery. The Wiggins family would like to thank Dr. Ahmed and Dr. Niaz, nurses Ally, Debbie and the “Kims” at Dr. F.H.

ELLINGSON Ira Kenneth Ellingson, age 85, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 6, 2018 at Pioneer Lodge in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He was born December 25, 1932 on a farm near Vidora, Saskatchewan, one of 9 children to Rudolph and Caroline (Anderson) Ellingson. He married Joyce Richardson on November 30, 1962 in Eastend, Saskatchewan. In 1963, they moved to Mortlach, Saskatchewan, where they raised their family and built their lives together in the same family home until the time of Ira’s passing. Ira was a hardworking husband and father, and was famous for his infectious sense of humor. As a young man, he began his career with the federal government working for the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Association, retiring at age 56 after 32 years of service in varying roles. At the same time, he followed his passion to farm and raise cattle until he disposed of his farming operation in his later years. He held on to a small parcel of land on the north side of Mortlach, where he continued to raise a few horses and tinker around. He loved to tell his grandchildren stories and take them for trips to the barn to see the horses. Every chance he got he would be on the road visiting auction sales, hoping for a good piece of pie and a visit with an old friend. He received several awards for his service to the community. Ira is survived by his wife of 56 years, Joyce; five children: Barbara (Scott) Ellingson, Patricia Ellingson, Duane (Kelli) Ellingson, Clinton Ellingson, and Andy Ellingson; eight grandchildren: Chantai Spearman, Shandell Spearman, Adrian McLaren, Paige McLaren, Dylan Ellingson, Sydney Ellingson, Abygail Ellingson, and Gracie Ellingson; great-grandson, Karsyn Spearman; siblings, Ollie Ellingson, and Bernice (Bob) Weber; and many nieces and nephews. Ira was preceded by his parents, Rudolph and Caroline; brothers, Alby, Kermy, Guy, and Barry; and sisters, Laura, and Josephine. Ira will be remembered as a man who was hardworking, honorable and a man of his word. He loved the simple things in life and devoted his life to his family. A Celebration of Ira’s Life will be held on Monday, December 17, 2018 from 1:30 to 4:30 pm at Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, where the family will host a short program and greet friends over lunch. At a later date, Ira will be taken home to his place of birth, where his ashes will be buried in the cemetery at Consul, Saskatchewan beside several of his siblings.

Officials seek for solutions for feral pigs in Hawaii parks HILO, Hawaii _ Hawaii officials are trying to come up with solutions for feral pig problems at some Big Island state parks. Officials have been working with surrounding land owners and other agencies on finding solutions, said Dean Takabayashi, the Hawaii island superintendent for the state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of State Park. While there have been no reports of inju-

ries from aggressive feral pigs in parks, it’s wise to stay away from them, he said. Two parks have signs warning the public not to feed the pigs, he said. There are pig populations at Rainbow Falls, a popular tourist attraction in Hilo, Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported Monday. There are also pigs at other parks including Wailoa River State Recreation Area in Hilo and Akaka Falls State Park

in Honomu. There are feral pigs in Lave Tree State Monument, which has been closed to the public because of lava from this year’s Kilauea volcanic eruption. Pigs sent Dan Brinkman, the east Hawaii region CEO of Hawaii Health Systems Corp., scurrying back to his car during a morning recent visit to Rainbow Falls in Wailuku River State Park. He said the pigs have become a problem and ``a danger to

the public when they become used to human sources of food and lose their fear of humans.’’ Feral pig bites and goring from tusks can cause injuries and infections, he said. Such as injuries are seen ``in our ER, most related to hunting, but some that are from unwanted encounters,’’ he said. © 2018 The Canadian Press

Lawyers want porn star to pay Trump $340K in legal fees By Brian Melley | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES _ Lawyers for President Donald Trump want porn actress Stormy Daniels to pay them $340,000 in legal bills they claim they earned successfully defending Trump against her failed defamation claim. The attorneys are due in a Los Angeles federal courtroom Monday to make their case that they rang up big bills because of gamesmanship and aggressive tactics by attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, alleges she had a one-night affair with Trump in 2006. She sued him earlier this year seeking to break a non-disclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 election about

the tryst as part of a $130,000 hush money settlement. Trump has denied the affair, but essentially acknowledged the payment to Daniels. Despite the deal to stay quiet, Daniels spoke out publicly and alleged that five years after the affair she was threatened to keep quiet by a man she did not recognize in a Las Vegas parking lot. She also released a composite sketch of the mystery man. She sued Trump for defamation after he responded to the allegation by tweeting: ``A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!’’

U.S. District Court Judge S. James Otero ruled in October that Trump’s statement was ``rhetorical hyperbole’’ against a political adversary and was protected speech under the First Amendment. Trump is entitled to legal fees, Otero said. Trump’s team of lawyers have accounted for more than 500 hours of work _ at rates as high as $840 an hour. Trump’s lead attorney said the fees and unspecified monetary sanctions were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case. © 2018 The Canadian Press
