Moose Jaw city clerk/solicitor Myron Gulka-Tiechko is joined by Mayor Fraser Tolmie and SaskPower representative Brent Maystrowich in signing the Option to Purchase and Right of Entry Agreement bringing the $700M SaskPower generation plant to the city.

Moose Jaw to see new SaskPower plant come to city Project expected to cost over $700 million, bring hundreds of jobs to city Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express





The City of Moose Jaw couldn’t have received a much better gift than it did during a special meeting of city council on Dec. 21. A presentation by SaskPower officials revealed that the crown corporation had chosen Moose Jaw as the site for a new 350 megawatt power generation station, to be located in the South East Industrial Park, with the purchase price of the land at $614,992. The real kicker? The plant itself would cost in the area of $700 million and would bring hundreds of jobs to the city during construction and 25 high-paying jobs upon completion. It was the culmination of a long-term project involving years of discussions that culminated in days of furious negotiations before things were finally put to paper. Seeing that hard work come to fruition was a relief for Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie, who expressed his excitement that a deal of such scope could be brought to life. “I think this is great way for us to kickstart our economy in the City of Moose Jaw,” he said. “I’ve been saying a few things in the community, that I believe Moose Jaw should be leading in this area, in the region that surrounds this province, and I believe the potential for growth lies in the city of Moose Jaw. “Today, this is proof in the pudding, that people got together, we rallied and we advocated for the City of Moose Jaw to bring this project to the forefront and come to an understanding that this is a great project for the city and the area surrounding it... We’re grateful to those who have gone before us and the work they’ve done, but we need to look toward the future and what projects like this will bring to Moose Jaw.” The plan for a new power plant has been in works for several years, and Tolmie made special mention of visionaries like Deb Thorn and Michelle Sanson, who felt such a plan would be ideal for Moose Jaw back in its inception and pressed council and administration


Lumsden-Morse Constituency

to pursue it. Initially, SaskPower had three sites selected around the province. Once they were aware of the potential in Moose Jaw, they added the fourth site in the industrial park. The process of elimination brought it down to Moose Jaw and a site near Belle Plaine before Tolmie and city administration essentially forced SaskPower’s hand. SaskPower brass had been in contact with Tolmie earlier in the week, letting him know that the powerplant decision had nearly been – but there’s a hang-up: a potential conflict with 15 Wing. Tolmie quickly contacted Wing Commander Col. Denis O’Reilly, who almost instantly took care of the issue and then later in the week all but locked SaskPower representatives in his office with city officials to hash out the deal once and for all. In the end, things went swimmingly, and an executive committee meeting on Dec. 19 put forward the potential land sale. That was followed by the special meeting of council itself to sign off on it once and for all Dec. 21. The deal passed unanimously and was met with applause from the gallery. “Part of this is recognizing that we have to pursue projects, which is what economic development is about,” said Coun. Crystal Froese. “Having us actually go to SaskPower and throw our hat in the ring might not have been possible if not for opening that door and providing all the information they needed to make this decision. “The mayor and the rest of council have a strong mandate to continue to pursue projects like that, to continue to seek projects that will fit with the community... so I want to thank the mayor for his leadership in this but particularly his staff and SaskPower for putting this together.” See the related story on A2 for more on the plant and what it will bring to the city.

New power plant a positive for City of Moose Jaw Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The new SaskPower power station to be slated for construction soon in the South East Industrial Park will be a state-of-the-art natural gas facility similar in style and design to the current brand-new station under construction near Swift Current. The Chinook Power Station will be – upon its completion in mid-to-late 2019 – a hyper-modern facility capable of not only generating power from natural gas but also from wind and solar sources as available. A combined cycle nat-

ural gas facility, the plant takes natural gas and uses it in a combustion turbine, burning the gas to generate electricity. It then takes the heat from the turbine to generate steam, which generates more electricity. Moose Jaw will carry much the same design, and through future public consultation and input, SaskPower will look to refine the project as much as possible in order to bring things in-line with community concerns. Regardless, the power plant will be

a major economic driver in the city over the next five years – government approvals are expected to take place through 2019, including provincial and federal environmental approvals. Construction could begin as early as 2020, with the plant going online in 20232034. Using Swift Current as a look at potential benefits, approximately $120 million in contracts were awarded to businesses in Saskatchewan, with a further $40 million directly into the community itself through trades, hotels and gasoline, to name a few. It’s expected around 500 people will be

working regularly during construction and at it’s peak around 700 workers will be onsite. The cash outlay doesn’t include the massive infrastructure improvements SaskPower will be making to the site in general – from water lines to road improvements – that will further benefit South East Industrial Park clients in the future. The plant’s existence as the anchor tenant in the area is expected to be especially beneficial in the future. Once construction is complete, around 25 high-paying permanent jobs will be generated, paying in the area of $100K each.


Just what would proposed eight per cent budget cut do to this city? During budget discussions, Coun. Brian Swanson moved his annual cutthe -budget motion. This year he wanted a report on an eight per cent cut, up from a proposed five per cent cut last year. Swanson was surprised his motion passed. Previous by Ron Walter motions like this failed. A week later, councillors expressed regrets but allowed the approved motion to stand. Coun. Heather Eby said she didn’t understand the motion. Duh! do the math! Eight per cent from proposed $48.4 million equals about $3.9 million. Now city administration is working on this report. Perhaps knowing how deep eight per cent cuts would go will cause council to realize how harmful they would be to this community.

Happy New Year

Right off the bat, council could save $1.4 million by eliminating the regular bus service. That cut would terribly inconvenience those low income souls depending on bus service. Some would have to quit their jobs and about 12 city employees would get pink slips. Closing Mosaic Place and Yara Centre would save the city a nearly $600,000 subsidy. Forget that there would be no more indoor soccer, no walking track, no WHL hockey, no more concerts. With cuts at $2 million, eliminating $2.1 million contributions to the self-funded equipment reserve for one year would do the job. That would avoid closing the cultural centre, ($390,000 savings) and the library ($1.4 million savings). Don’t expect any savings from cuts to reduce your property taxes. The savings likely would go to replacing infrastructure. The City of Moose Jaw cut the budget five per cent by $1 million to $20 million about 27 yeas ago. Part

of those cuts included eliminating the economic development officer. How many business ventures did Moose Jaw lose over the next 20 years because of insufficient follow-up to inquiries? Also lost were annual garbage collection and city equipment used to pave and patch roads and clear snow from roads. Sure could use that equipment now. Once that cut was made taxpayers expected more of the same and got it. For the next eight years only three small tax increases around two per cent each were approved. Moose Jaw lost executive city employees — seven in one year. Wage scales fell behind so badly the city couldn’t afford to hire topnotch administration. The city is still suffering from those cuts more than a generation ago but we’re talking about repeating the same mistake! Ron Walter can be reached at

SaskPower plant benefits to Moose Jaw great, but short-term outlook still overcast The signing of a deal to build a $700 million natural gas co-generation plant in Moose Jaw will cement this city’s future. When industry looks for location sites, four factors tip the balance in decisions: skilled reliable pool of labour, access to markets, reliable supply of water and energy. Moose Jaw has the labour pool, the access to markets by rail and highway, the water and now a better supply of energy. Increasingly, industry seeks energy produced with low greenhouse gas emissions. Natural gas has the lowest emissions outside of uranium, solar or wind energy. The plant is part of the provincial program to lower greenhouse gas emissions from shifting power sources by 2030. This plant could add about 10 per cent to SaskPower’s generating capacity, Aside from acting as an attraction for business, the plant will have other benefits — 600 employees here during the three year construction period, about 25 full-time employees, a major user of water, and possibly municipal tax revenue. The provincial government ended grants in lieu of taxes

from crown corporations in 2016. Hopefully the city was able to negotiate grants for this plant. The full grant in lieu would add $10 million a year to local property tax revenues. Current property tax revenues are $27 million a year. Politics often enters into major Crown Corporation decisions: witness the natural gas co-generation plant under construction at Swift Current, home of the premier when it was announced. To the extent that politics influenced this decision, our two Saskatchewan Party MLAa may have more clout in caucus than previously thought. The next decade looks a lot brighter for Moose Jaw but the immediate economic outlook isn’t anything to write or text home about. The Royal Bank’s outlook in December reduced growth estimates in Saskatchewan to 1.6 per cent of GDP from 1.7 per cent this year. The Saskatchewan part of the outlook, titled Bumpy Road Ahead, cautions of pressure on the energy mining sector on a number of fronts.

Oil price weakness will have a greater impact on investment than previously anticipated. Uranium looks weak with some recovery in potash. Unfortunately for potash and oil, political decisions by cartels – OPEC for oil and Russian potash giants – can suddenly shift prices up or down. Agriculture has offset some of the mining decline. Of course, assumptions about agriculture include “normal crop growing conditions.” The last provincial crop report indicated one-third of cultivated land and almost half of pasture/forage land is short or very short of moisture. This province needs lots of snow, a good spring run-off and timely rains to develop average agriculture crop and livestock production next year. The province remains influenced by that “Next Year” hope that has gripped Saskatchewan since the first settlers broke sod. Ron Walter can be reached at

The ever-popular song Auld Lang Syne written by Robert Burns in 1788, still heralds in the New Year annually. It poses the question, “Is it right that old times be forgotten? The answer is generally interpreted as a call to remember long-standing friendships. Joan Ritchie

“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne? CHORUS: For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne, we’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.”


As we say goodbye to 2018 and the good and the bad the year has seen, we are thankful that each new year brings hope of a better tomorrow for all of us. In contemplation, we reflect on the past, but with anticipation, we embrace the future. Only God knows what tomorrow will bring and we can put our hope and trust in Him to keep us through it all. As sure as the sun shines, life will continue on. Wise words from King Solomon state: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. As we turn the corner on 2018, let’s put the past behind us and venture into a new year. My wish is that you will all find the peace and happiness in your lives to embrace, with hope, what 2019 will bring.

Government sees procurement changes as good for taxpayers and industry Matthew Gourlie

Deputy Premier Gordon Wyant believes that the provincial government's new procurement service is a win-win for Saskatchewan. Wyant spoke at a Moose Jaw Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Dec. 19 to outline the Saskatchewan government's public procurement transformation. In June of 2014 the provincial government created Priority Saskatchewan, a new branch of SaskBuilds. It is responsible for ensuring procurement across ministries and the Crown sector is fair, open, transparent, accountable and based on international best practice. SaskBuilds began implementing the Procurement Transformation Action Plan in March 2015. The 13-point plan is expected to streamline the procurement process, saving taxpayer dollars, while also ensuring Saskatchewan businesses are treated fairly and giving them more opportunities to secure contracts. "To see the transformation and the growth of what we started a number of years ago has been really exciting," said Wyant, who added that it was exciting "to hear from Saskatchewan companies, Saskatchewan suppliers and employees that what we're doing is actually making a difference in terms of providing more work to Saskatchewan people and more support in the economy." Last October in the Speech from the Throne, the government announced that they would be moving to a single-window procurement for the $2 billion in goods, services and construction that are procured by the executive government ministries each year. Wyant said that they don't have a hard target in terms of how much money they hope to save taxpayers through this change or how many more contracts they hope to see Saskatchewan businesses issued, but they are keeping a close eye on both bottom lines and are confident to see positives in both areas. "With what we're doing now through this single-window procurement, we're anticipating it to be in the millions of dollars in terms of the money we're going to save through the procurement by streamlining it all," said Wyant who is the minister in charge of SaskBuilds. "We haven't set any targets, but we know it's going to save some money for the taxpayer and we know it's going to be beneficial for Saskatchewan suppliers. "One of the things we'll do after a number of months -- perhaps a year -- is a little bit of an analysis. We know how much money we spend on procurement now and we'll be able to tell at the end of (2019) how much we're spending on procurement and how much more is being generated for Saskatchewan businesses. So, while we don't set a particular target, we have some numbers in mind. We'll be able to see after a period of time how successful we've been." Wyant cited the Chinook Power Station, a combined cycle natural gas generating facility in the R.M. of Swift Current, as one of the early successes of the new procurement process. SaskPower will own and operate the 350-megawatt natural gas plant which is anticipated to cost $680 million and is expected to provide clean electricity to approximately 300,000 homes. "With the Swift Current combined cycle plant we saw $165 million of that plant go to local suppliers in that community and in the surrounding communities. We can see that kind of success for a plant like that, we can only imagine the kind of success we're going to see across government," Wyant said. Wyant noted that there was legislation in place previously where price was the only determining factor for the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure and the Ministry of Central Services in issuing contracts. That legislation has changed to take best value into ac-

Deputy Premier Gordon Wyant spoke to the Moose Jaw Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Dec. 19 about the provincial government’s new procurement service. Matthew Gourlie photograph count. Best value is a trade compliant philosophy that allows for factors that bring value beyond just price into play. "We used to procure based on lowest price," Wyant said. "You can imagine that sometimes lowest price isn't going to give you the best product over time. Things like life cycle cost is an important component. Cost will be important, but life cycle cost will be important as are a number of other things that come into play. Innovation is another piece that will come into best value -- to make sure we get the best value for Saskatchewan tax payers." The best value legislation helps the Saskatchewan government try to strike a balance between making sure they're trade compliant, while also having more flexibility to award contracts locally. "Everybody talks a good story when it comes to free trade between provinces, but at the end of the day there are a lot of things that get in the way of that," Wyant said. "To the extent that we have trade obligations, we're going to be compliant, but we're going to take full advantage of any opportunity within those agreements." Wyant noted that Saskatchewan started procurement transformation long before Alberta and British Columbia made similar changes, but he feels that their partners in the New West Partnership have adopted a more protectionist stance than Saskatchewan. "What troubles us about Alberta and British Columbia is they're really focusing on protecting their local supplier. We want to do that too, but we want to do it within the parameters of our trade agreements," Wyant said. "So be respectful of the New West Partnership and respectful of the AIT (Canadian Agreement on Internal Trade). I'm always a little concerned that some of our partners pay more lip service to those agreements than actual compliance to them. "We just want to make sure that the work we're doing in Priority Saskatchewan is trade compliant and if we can do that within the parameters of those trade agreements to benefit Saskatchewan suppliers, that's what we want to do." Wyant also vowed that they were going to be more proactive in ensuring their trade partners are living up to their trade agreements. “We've seen the province of Alberta be very close with their suppliers and we hear lots of anecdotal information about Saskatchewan suppliers being cut out of procurements in Alberta," Wyant said. "That worries us a little bit, but as Premier Wall used to say, 'We're not going to be Boy Scouts about this any more, we're going to make sure that we make sure whatever we can -- within the parameters of the law -- to look after our local suppliers.'"

NHL legend Sittler to headline Kinsmen Banquet Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Kinsmen will have an NHL legend heading up their 27th annual Sports Celebrity Banquet. The local service club announced recently that former Toronto Maple Leafs standout Darryl Sittler will be joined by former Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons and race car driver Amber Balcaen as special guests for the always-anticipated event. Sportsnet Central anchor Jamie Campbell will return as the master of ceremonies for the fourth straight year. A Hockey Hall of Fame and Canadian Walk of Fame member, Sittler played in the NHL from 1970 to 1986, with the first 12 of those seasons as member of the Maple Leafs. The first Leaf to score 100 points in a single season, Sittler is most famous for the greatest single-game offensive output in NHL history – his six-goal, 10-point effort against the Boston Bruins on Feb. 7, 1976 continues to stand as an NHL record. Sittler was named to the Hall of Fame in 1989 and in 2017 was named one of the Top 100 Greatest NHL Players. Gibbons was the head coach of the Toronto Blue Jays from 2004 to 2009 and again from 2012 to 2018, reaching the American League Championship Series in 2015 and 2016. He retired at the end of the 2018 season and was celebrated with John Gibbons Day in Toronto on Sept. 26. Balcaen is a third-generation driver from Winnipeg and is the first Canadian female to win a NASCAR sanctioned race in the U.S. The rookie of the year on the 2014 Sprint Car circuit, Balcaen is now president of her namesake racing company and will compete on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series in 2019. Tickets are currently available for the banquet at $150 each or a corporate table of eight for $1,200. For more information or reservations, contact Cory at 631-8893 or John at 690-4555.

Students get first-hand experience of judicial system Matthew Gourlie

After the jury read their verdict, there was plenty of debate inside the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench about the nuances of the case. Despite their being a guilty verdict, no one was going to jail. Rather, Central Collegiate’s Law 30 class had just taken part in their annual mock jury trial and did so with some interesting and compelling legal arguments. “It’s been a great learning experience for these kids. There’s a lot of them who have actually said after this that they want to pursue a career in law,” said Central’s Cal Carter, who teaches the class. This year’s mock jury trial was held in the court and Justice Darin Chow presided with Senior Crown Prosecutor Rob Parker leading the prosecution and David Chow and Tim Hansen from Chow McLeod leading the defence. There were four student lawyers on each side who either made arguments or questioned witnesses. Students also shadowed the sheriff and judicial officer Carol Meier and served as the witnesses who took the stand. The accused was a Central student, as were all 12 jurors and their two alternates. “I am really proud of them. They’ve worked hard -- on both sides. There were some that I was impressed with how they stepped up. They were nervous, of course, and that sort of thing, but I was really proud of them. They did well,” Carter said. “We had comments from Judge Chow and from Carol (Meier) saying that the kids had really improved. They seem to be getting better as we go along.”

In his closing remarks, Chow complimented the students on the work they had put in to the exercise. Carter said he really appreciated the local legal community taking time out of their schedules to take part in the mock trial, to work with the students and also come in and speak to the class at various points. “We’ve had the crown, both Mr. Parker and Mr. (Brian) Hendrickson and Tim McLeod,” Carter said. “We’ve also had law students come in and talk to the class. We’ve had a lot of good class involvement at the school level and they’ve been really supportive of doing this program.” This is the fourth year Carter’s class has done the mock jury trial and the third time they’ve been able to hold it in the court. Last year saw the Central law class squaring off against the Vanier law class which added another dimension to the proceedings. The mock trials bring a lot of different skill sets to bear. The students need to use teamwork to research and form rational arguments while developing skills like public speaking, interviewing and extracting information on the stand. “We’ve had little ones in class where they’ve gone up against each other and have had to partner and team up with different students,” Carter said. The class and the mock trial help teach students the law, but they also help demystify the legal process and show a more realistic depiction of the legal system than the students may be used to seeing on television or in the movies. “I start off in my very first class telling them that you think this is going to be the Tom Cruise ‘You can’t handle the truth!’ you’re going to be sadly disappointed,” Carter said. “There are a lot of people who are in law, who are lawyers, who don’t actually see a court room. There’s all different avenues and aspects of it. We try to take out the Hollywood glitz and glam of it. “I take them to docket court, which can be boring, so they see how that works. We will usually go on a Monday when there has been maybe more arrests.” Unlike American procedural dramas on TV and in movies where much time and effort may be put into profiling potential jurors during the “voir dire” process, jury selection is quite simple in Canada. Both the crown and defence

The fore person, left, delivers their verdict as Central student Ethan Johnson, right, sits in the prisoner’s box listening during their mock jury trial at the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench in Moose Jaw. Matthew Gourlie had the chance to say “content” or “challenge” and that was it. If a prospective juror was challenged, they were dismissed. Justice Chow noted that if too many prospective jurors are dismissed and they don’t have enough people to form a jury, the sheriff is tasked with going out onto the street and pulling people into the court to serve. That being said, jury trials are fairly rare at the Queen’s bench level and Justice Chow noted that while the perception is that jury trials are preferable to the accused, he hasn’t always found that to be the case. Unlike in a real trial, the jury in the mock trial was asked to discuss the reasons for their decision with the legal teams, which led to even more debate about the case. The case was part of the curriculum and was complex and nuanced. The “accused” -- senior Ethan Johnson -was charged with unauthorized possession of firearm and pointing a firearm. The back story was that the accused was throwing a party when his neighbour asked him to turn down the music. Guns were drawn by other party-goers, the lights went out and shots were fired. The victim said the accused pointed a gun at him, while the accused alleged that he had a gun given to him and he dropped it as soon as he realized what it was. There was a gun found in the apartment, under a couch, that had not been fired, wasn’t loaded and didn’t have the accused’s fingerprints on it.

Learning about Christmas long ago Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

While some folks were out finishing off their Christmas shopping or winding up the last of their holiday preparations, many others were taking a moment to remember the past. It was all about reminiscing about the fun times of old and anticipating the new memories to come. That’s where the Western Development Museum sought to offer a little more ‘tangible’ experience during the past two weekends, as they hosted their second annual Christmas Long Ago presentations. The event featured a special ‘Christmas living room’ display – complete with fireplace, tree, cozy carpets and comfy chairs – set to look like a home in the early 1900s.

WDM education and public program director Karla Rasmussen conducted the show, running patrons through the wide variety of artifacts on display as well as passing on tales of how things were in the old days. “This is originally based on a kindergarten program we used to have, where the class would come in, the teacher would have a script and would go through everything,” Rasmussen said. “But I always felt we could embellish it a bit more because the kids were asking a lot more questions than was in the basic script.” Things took off from there, as the WDM brought in boxes of old-fashioned toys that could actually be held and played with as

University hearing study seeks participants.

Connect Hearing, with hearing researcher Professor Kathy Pichora-Fuller at the University of Toronto, seeks participants who are over 50 years of age and have never worn hearing aids for a hearing study investigating factors that can influence better hearing. All participants will have a hearing test provided at no charge and if appropriate, the clinician may discuss hearing rehabilitation options including hearing aids. Qualifying participants may also receive a demo of the latest hearing technology. The data collected from this study will be used to further our understanding of hearing loss and improve life-changing hearing healthcare across Canada. Why participate in the hearing study? Hearing problems typically result from damage to the ear and researchers have spent decades trying to understand the biology behind hearing loss. More importantly, researchers now realize the need to better understand how hearing

The end result has been impressive, as patrons both young and old have flocked to see the show since its inception – from 100 students last year to over 400 this year, followed by public dates that were all but sold out. The popularity has risen so much that the WDM added a show on Christmas Eve to add an extra special touch to the proceedings. Interestingly enough, it isn’t just children and their parents who are taking in the show; there have been plenty of adults and seniors who have come out just to take in the educational experience or actually reminisce of their own past Christmases. “It’s really wonderful that way because I think we all feel like kids at Christmas

It is estimated that 46% of people aged 45 to 87 have some degree of hearing loss1, but most do not seek treatment right away. In fact, the average person with hearing loss will wait ten years before seeking help2. This is because at the beginning stages of hearing loss people often find they can “get by” without help, however as the problem worsens this becomes increasingly harder to do. For some people this loss of clarity is only a problem at noisy restaurants or in the car, but for others it makes listening a struggle throughout the entire day. By studying people who have difficulty hearing in noise or with television, we hope to identify key factors impacting these difficulties and further understand their influence on the treatment process.

The gifts folks received in the early 1900s were far different from what we receive today...

Before e-mails there were letters, and there were a lot of letters sent at Christmas time. time and everyone can take something away from it, whether it’s something they learned or remembering something they used or were a part of or something their friends talked about,” Rasmussen said. One aspect that makes Christmas Long Ago so popular is the hands-on portion – in addition to being able to hold and experience old toys and items from the old days, the aforementioned toys are handed out at one point in the show, so everyone can have a try. That’s proven to be a hit with the kids who’ve never seen such things, as well as with the seniors who actually played with similar toys in the past. “Usually when you’re at a museum everything is so hands off, where this part of the collection is meant to be touched as part of a physical interaction,” Rasmussen said. “It’s really great, it makes history come alive.”

Looking Back at 2018

MLAs Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

The end of the year always gives me pause to reflect on the year passed, and anticipate the year ahead. While important and significant progress was made by our government this past year, our local activities, made possible by outstanding Moose Javians, make up a good part of my reflections. Moose Jaw has a great tradition of starting out our year with the Moose Jaw Citizen and Group of the Year Awards. The Chamber of Commerce is looking for nominations for our next Citizen and Group of the Year to follow the worthy 2017 recipients, Christine Boyzcuk, and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Moose Jaw. There are many outstanding individuals and organizations in Moose Jaw, please consider nominating an individual or group. More information is available from the Chamber of Commerce. Our community actively supports so many good causes throughout the year, including fundraising events like steak nights, car shows, the Colour Run, Terry Fox Run, the Walk for Life, and initiatives supporting the fight against MS, Cancer and Mental Health. New Habitat for Humanity Homes also continue to be built through donations from local business and groups, and hard work by

dedicated volunteers. Seasonal events like Sidewalk Days, the Hometown Fair, and 15 Wing activities, including Pilot Graduations and the 15 Wing Fellowship Air and Car Show, keep our community strong and our citizens involved. Each summer the Concerts in the Park series always provides quality entertainment in support of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. I appreciated the efforts of service clubs and community organizations along with the business community in promoting strong community initiatives. Sporting events also added interest to the year. The Warriors were a strong team in the Western Hockey League, advancing to the third round of playoffs. The Moose Jaw Miller Express played a season of thrills and disappointments while managing to make the playoffs. We’re looking forward to the next season. As summer turned to fall, I once again enjoyed the Lindale School Thanksgiving Dinner. It is always a special community event and I appreciate the invitation. Remembrance Day was very significant this year. Not only did we recognize 100 years since the end of the First World War, the 2018 Remembrance Day service was the 100th service in Moose Jaw honouring those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Congratulations to the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans of Moose Jaw on their 100th Anniversary. They are the oldest ANAVETS club in Canada, chartered on December 16, 1918. As we closed out the year, the Festival of Trees kicked off the festive season. It might be considered the social event of the year, but more importantly, it raises hundreds of thousands of dollars to enhance health care in Moose Jaw.

From a government aspect, 2018 was most certainly a year of change. Within the first few months, Saskatchewan had a new Premier, a new Leader of the Opposition, a new Speaker of the Legislative Assembly along with three newly-elected MLAs. Premier Scott Moe has successfully led the Saskatchewan Party Government to keep our economy on track in the face of significant challenges. It is encouraging as your MLA to attend grand openings, notable anniversaries and special announcements. I’m sure many were excited to learn that the Saskatchewan Air Show would return to 15 Wing in 2019. In another event, I was honoured to welcome foreign commodity buyers from Turkey and India who were in Moose Jaw touring our producer crops with Mid-West Grain Ltd. The fabric of any year will always have its darker moments as well as reasons to be grateful. The federal government’s proposed imposition of a carbon tax, pipeline delays, a drastic oil price differential and poor harvest weather tested even the hardy citizens of Moose Jaw. The Humboldt Broncos bus crash touched the lives of all of us. The Moose Jaw Generals Player and Alumni game in honour of Evan Thomas, a former Generals player, and casualty of the accident, was a moving event. Bringing in the New Year is a time of celebration. We are encouraged to “Wing in the New Year”, by planning a safe ride home after our New Year’s Eve festivities. Please check the City of Moose Jaw website for details on expanded free bus service this New Year’s Eve. I hope you have many happy memories of 2018. From my wife Debbie and I, best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019.

Year End Rearview?

It seems like it was only a year or two ago that we were worried our computer driven society would see the end of the world as we celebrated entering into a new millennium. Of course that was not the case, but that was almost 19 years ago and my by Dale “bushy” whole family felt that if the Bush world was going to end as the date changed on New Years Eve, we would be in our favorite vacation spot of Jamaica. This year our New Year celebration will be a quiet, low key evening of movies and probably naps but we will remember the past year in Liarton. Spring came early on Liars Mountain because our local groundhog, a Hoary Marmot named Liarton Larry, emerged from his winter hibernation hole (a straw stuffed plywood box) on Groundhog Day wearing sunglasses, sunscreen and sandals. I doubt if there was a better looking and more accurate weather prognosticator than Liarton Larry this year because once certain folks got over his heritage (the Hoary part) he nailed his forecast. The problem was that once the nice weather came, there was very little rain and that resulted in a severe forest fire season. But Liartonians became

very aware of fire safety and prevention, and that is a positive. Another positive is that we were able to avoid any fires in our area….whew! This autumn I had a very emotional moment when I was reminded of a terrible tragedy that occurred in the spring, and through this sadness and grief the hockey world was brought together. I know that I was moved to tears, just like everyone else, when I heard the news reports of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. I proudly wore my jersey on Jersey Day and I put out tribute hockey sticks by my doors and at my “Little Library” at the end of my driveway. I was moved by how many of my neighbours honoured the Broncos with sticks, as well, and if that didn’t produce enough tears, one of my young neighbours (11 years old) recently continued to pay tribute to the terrible loss this fall by leaving three of his sticks leaning on my little library. They were marked with his name and “remember the broncos” written in lower case carefully drawn letters. There are enough sticks there now for a game of shinny, should one break out. Remember the Broncos…sigh. In my eternal quest for self-improvement I felt it was time for me to lose my hockey smile this fall and get some new teeth. I searched the entire province for a set of good used dentures and failed, but it was suggested to make a trip to Mexico for fake teeth if I wanted to save money… and have a vacation. Of course, I am joking about used den-

tures but I checked on the interwwweb and you can actually buy used teeth or have them custom made…by mail! What could possibly go wrong? I wisely stayed local and I now have a beautiful Hollywood smile just like Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt or even Brad Cruise, but I am worried about women seeing me smile… and then stalking me. On October 19th, the new Cannabis Act went into effect and to be honest I could give a darn. Nothing has really changed except there are so many more ways to break this new law, but there have been no cannabis disasters or rebellions. Has reefer madness come to stay? Who cares, just pay your “sin” taxes and let the governments spend those taxes on health and education. Use but don’t abuse, just like booze and tobacco. As my beautiful bride and myself snuggle on the couch New Year’s Eve watching movies, we will be wishing you the best in 2019… Cheers!

WCB approves 2019 premium rates Average premium rate decreases by 1.7%

The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) has approved the 2019 average employer premium rate of $1.17 per hundred dollars of payroll, a decrease of 1.7 per cent from the 2018 rate of $1.19. The 2019 rate marks the 12th consecutive year the rate has dropped, making it the lowest rate in more than 30 years. The 2019 average rate is 42.9 per cent below the 16-year high of $2.05 in 2004. “Because of the safety focus of many employers and workers, many indus-

try rate codes have experienced fewer workplace injuries and lower claims costs,” said WCB Chairperson Gord Dobrowolsky. “This is a factor in the overall drop in premium rates.” In 2019, 42.5 per cent of Saskatchewan employers covered by the WCB will see a decrease or no change to their industry premium rate, with the decreases ranging from 0.6 per cent to 14.0 per cent. The premium rates for 57.5 per cent of employers will increase in 2019, with the increases

ranging from 1.2 per cent to 17.4 per cent. The 2019 industry premium rates reflect the WCB’s complete transition to the enhanced rate model that was implemented in 2018. For 2018 only, to mitigate the impact of the move to the enhanced rate model, the WCB drew from the Injury Fund to help employers in 14 rate codes whose premium rate would increase as a result of moving to the enhanced rate model. For 2019, the premium rate for all


rate codes was calculated under the enhanced model. Of the employers seeing an increase to their 2019 premium rate, 54.5 per cent are because of the final transition to the enhanced rate model. Through effective injury prevention and return-to-work programs, employers can influence the premium rate they pay. For more information, visit

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Foil plates and margarine tubs might come in handy

Some fact-checking is required but if memory isn’t failing me, one of the resolutions I made to myself at the beginning of 2018 was to be less of a pack-rat to show some measure of the neatness passed down from the ancestors. It is now time to do an analysis of the success of that particular resolution. Verdict, with 1 being poor and 10 being beyond expectations — I’m just lucky a minus 1 wasn’t offered as a choice. In other words, I have failed miserably to downsize the amount of “stuff” that is deemed necesJoyce Walter sary to the smooth operation of the household. For Moose Jaw Express Housemate has suggested my predilection to saving or hoarding everything that comes within my sight comes from the fact my parents endured some very poor and difficult times and that waste not, want not mentality was passed down to me. It was one of the lessons in which I received top marks. He might laugh at me for saving what I do, but whereas my Mom would save pieces of foil for use a second time, my foil fetish is an impressive collection of foil pie plates, foil baking dishes, and foil dishes suitable for carrying to a potluck supper, and home again. He forgets, in his quest to encourage me to get rid of some of my collection, that I did share dozens of pie plates with my friend, who returns them to me with pies — so it isn’t entirely my fault that my stash stays about the same size. Plastic containers have a place of honour in our cupboards, and in bags downstairs in the storage room. Housemate has offered to donate some of these containers to worthy causes and local charities and I don’t hesitate to offer some, but definitely not the margarine tubs, the sour cream dishes, not even the see-through bins that contained glazed fruits and peels. And he definitely hasn’t convinced me to throw out the higher-class brands of containers like Glad and Ziplock and Tupper Ware. Why just before Christmas I dug out some of those containers and used 15 of them to make my Christmas pudding. What would I have done if I hadn’t stashed them away downstairs? He shakes his head and walks away. We have towels and face cloths and pillow cases that each of us brought into the marriage and some we received as wedding gifts. I have a sentimental attachment to then, remembering the names of the old friends who gifted us, and sadly, are no longer with us. Is it too much to honour their memories by keeping a towel with a hole in the middle or a dish towel on which the liquid embroidery has faded completely away? I admit our living-room is a catch-all for boxes and bags, much of it materials needed upstairs on a regular basis and brought up from the basement to save me from going up and down the steps. Many boxes contain printed materials and papers from some organizations to which I belong. Even with computers and digital capabilities, I like to have a paper copy available, just in case the power goes off. Certainly I am somewhat disgruntled at my lack of downsizing success and do offer apologies to anyone who happens to drop by. “Come in if you can get in,” is a common phrase offered at the doorstep, usually to people who have known us for decades and won’t be shocked to see the things I keep, and where I keep them. Others who drop by might not get off the step. And now they know why. And about the stand-up vacuum: it is in a handy spot, acting as it does as a hanger for a coat or two. And if the urge to clean strikes, I don’t have to search for it or to remember in which room it is stored. So, have I made a similar resolution to throw out stuff this new year? Perhaps. A report next year at this time will reveal the full answer. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Warriors fall to Broncos in stunning fashion, lose 4-3 in overtime Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The old saying might be something along the line of ‘everyone has nights like this’ but not even Moose Jaw Warriors assistant coach Mark O’Leary had seen anything like what his team went through on Thursday night against the Swift Current Broncos. You don’t dominate a Western Hockey League game so thoroughly and not come out with win pretty much every night. But in the end – and in spite of another late game rally – a broken stick in overtime saw to it that the Warriors would drop a 4-3 OT decision to the Broncos in a game that really, actually should have brought the Tribe another point in the standings. The Warriors fell to 17-8-5-1 with the loss and sit in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, two points back of Red Deer, Lethbridge and Edmonton. “I can’t remember one that was that slanted, zone time especially,� said O’Leary, who is filling in as bench boss as Warriors head coach Tim Hunter is with Team Canada at the World Juniors. “We spent the whole time in their end and we just can’t bang it over the goal line. There were times it was just sitting there in the crease with an open cage and we just tried to tap it in, you can’t do that with a goalie who’s never really out of it. So we might have had the zone time but we still have to bear down and score.� That goalie was perennial thorn-in-the-Warriors’-side Joel Hofer, who was utterly beleaguered at times but kept his team in the proceedings. Hofer ended up with 39 saves, including 20 in the second period alone.

Moose Jaw Warriors forward Tristan Langan couldn't quite lift this shot over Broncos goaltender Joel Hofer. “We deserve better,� said Warriors forward Brayden Tracey, the game’s first star. “Their goalie played an excellent game and we have to bear down more in and around the net and the results will come... we just have to work a little harder around the net.� Interestingly enough, Moose Jaw never led in the contest – Carter Chorney gave Swift Current a 1-0 lead 13:35 into the second before Jett Woo tied the game with just over two minutes left in the frame. That set the stage for yet another slate of late-game dramatics as Swift Current’s Matthew Culling capped a 3-on-2 break to give his team a 2-1 lead with 5:31 remaining. A turnover in the zone then allowed Matthew

Stanley to score for the Broncos with just over two minutes on the clock, and all of a sudden it was 3-1 Swift Current. As has been the case so many times this season, cue the comeback. Tracey capped off a furious slew of chances with his 11th of the season with 1:09 to play, followed 22 seconds later by Keenan Taphorn with the tying goal, forcing overtime. There, Warriors forward Daniil Stepanov broke his stick attempting to move the puck up the boards and had to scramble for a replacement, leading to a 2-on-1 that ended with the Broncos’ Alex Moar scoring 1:58 into the extra frame. O’Leary hoped the team would learn from the experience and take those lessons into the rematch of the homeand-home contest the next night. “We showed a little bit of rust in our touch around the net after the time off from Christmas but I’m really happy with the effort,� he said. “We got right into the swing of things but at the end of the day didn’t capitalize. We just have to trust the process and keep playing our game and the results will come like they have.� The Warriors were also back in action Saturday and Sunday for a home-and-home with Brandon, with scores unavailable as of press time.Next action for the Tribe is Jan. 4 when they travel to Prince Albert to face the Raiders; next home action is Jan. 5 against the Portland Winterhawks.

Prairie Hockey Academy hires Molleken Moose Jaw Express

The Prairie Hockey Academy just continues to grow and succeed, and it stands to reason that former Western Hockey League and National Hockey League coach Lorne Molleken would only help that process along. The PHA announced Friday they have hired Molleken to take over as head coach

of the Elite 15’s program beginning in the new year, a move PHA president Justin Simpkins says will help contribute to the depth of the academy and its student athletes. “When you think of the name Lorne Molleken, you think of a Saskatchewan hockey player and coach who has spent years in the game and has contributed a lot to the growth and development of Saskatchewan hockey,� Simpkins said in a press release. “To have the chance to bring someone of Lorne’s experience into the academy and work alongside him is an incredible honour and privilege. All of us will benefit from his insight and mentor-

A former head coach with the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL, Molleken has also worked with the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins as an assistant coach. In addition to working with the Moose Jaw Warriors from 1988-91, Molleken was the head coach of the Saskatoon Blades from 1991-95 and from 2004-2013, winning the WHL coach of the year in 1994. The Elite 15’s Cougars are off to an amazing start in their inaugural PHA campaign, holding a 16-7-0 record to sit in fourth place in the league, nine points back of Delta, B.C.

City Employees Give Back In December City of Moose Jaw employees took time in December to contribute to local charities in two different ways. Each year the City of Moose Jaw’s Recruitment, Retention and Recognition Committee (RRRC) organizes a “Dress Down Friday” initiative. For a donation, City Hall employees are given the option of wearing jeans/casual clothing every Friday throughout the year. In December, the City of MJ staff handed over the 2016-2018 proceeds to various local charities as follows: • 2016 - $1,046.50 – Moose Jaw Humane Society • 2017 - $636 – Hunger In Moose Jaw • 2018 - $1,267.50 – Riverside Mission Additionally, in 2018 the Treasury Dept. of the City’s Financial Services branch began a Community Outreach pilot project. The project allows employees to spend scheduled time volunteering with local charities. The project was initiated as way to not only assist local organizations but provide an avenue for City employees to develop personal and professional skills. In December, volunteers spent time helping at the Moose Jaw Humane Society and Hunger in Moose Jaw. The group looks forward to more volunteer opportunities in 2019!

In just a few days, the bells will ring at schools as students and teachers return to the classrooms, entering the last half of the year’s educational term. Producing healthy and hearty lunches is often the dilemma faced in many kitchens. The Dairy Producers of Canada offers some suggestions that will satisfy the appetites of teachers and their students. ••• Carrot Lentil Soup 2 tsps. butter 2 large carrots, diced 1 onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, minced 3/4 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. dried rosemary or thyme, crushed 1 cup dried red lentils, rinsed and drained 3 cups water

1 tbsp. all-purpose flour 2 cups milk 2 tbsps. freshly squeezed lemon juice pepper to taste 2 tbsps. thinly sliced fresh basil and green onions In a pot, heat butter over medium heat. Saute carrots, onion, garlic, salt and rosemary for about 5 minutes or until onion is softened. Stir in lentils and water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and boil gently, covered, for 15 minutes or until lentils and carrots are soft. Whisk flour into milk and gradually stir into pot. Increase heat to medium and simmer, stirring for about 3 minutes until slightly thickened, but do not boil. Stir in lemon juice and season to taste with pepper. Serve, sprinkled with basil and green onion. Note: make the soup ahead of time then pack indi-

vidual lunch servings in microwaveable containers to reheat at school, or at work. ••• Quinoa Spinach and Fruit Salad 3/4 cup quinoa 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour 1 cup milk 1/2 cup water 1/4 tsp. salt 1 tsp. grated orange zest 4 cups packed baby spinach 2 cups berries or sliced strawberries 3 1/2 oz. brick cheese, sliced 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice pepper to taste In a fine mesh sieve, rinse quinoa well under cold running water. Drain and set aside. Whisk flour into milk and pour into a deep saucepan. Add water and salt and bring to a gentle boil

over medium heat, stirring often. Stir in quinoa and return to a boil, stirring. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until quinoa is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, add orange zest, fluff with a fork and let cool. Refrigerate until chilled or for up to one day. Using a fork, toss spinach with quinoa. Gently stir in fruit, cheese and orange juice. Season with pepper to taste. For school or work, pack cooked quiona in a readyto-serve lunch container. Pack other ingredients separately and combine just before eating. Joyce Walter can be reached at

The Moose Jaw Express 2018 ‘Year in Review’ is an overview of 2018 in Moose Jaw. Here are some of the highlights from each month to remember; only a small sampling of 2018 at a glance.


Moose Jaw Citizen of the Year: Christine Boyczuk Christine Boyczuk, a leading volunteer in the community was announced as the (2017) Citizen of the Year. For her unwavering support in the community through a number of volunteer positions held in education, clubs and different organizations in the community, Boyczuk was

a deserving recipient. She has held several roles in education and is a part-time Literacy Coordinator. As of January 2018, she was the current president of the Provincial John Howard Society, board president of the YMCA, member of the Canadian Mental Health Association Moose

Jaw, a member of the Provincial Mental Health Reference Committee, vice president of the Wakamow Rotary Club and past president of the Friendly City Optimist Club.

Mayor commits to improving communication with residents in State of the City Address Mayor Fraser Tolmie presented his State of the City Address in January 2018, committing to improved communications between the city and residents. He highlighted the city’s accomplishments for the past year and noted that the city has the potential to do even greater things with the “spirit of determination and optimism” that residents continue to

display. As City Hall continued to experience turmoil throughout the 2018 year, it is yet to be seen if communications have become closer to improving, or not.

Local Indie Rock/Alt-Country Artist Megan Nash wins Sask. Album of the Year Local and international recording singer and songwriter with Moose Jaw roots, Megan Nash copped Sask. Album of the Year (for 2017) for her album, “Seeker.” Lyrically drawing from several recent life-changing experiences while venturing into new, authentic sonic territory, “Seeker” vividly captures Nash’s creative evolution since 2015’s “Song Harvest Volume One”, and takes her personal, roots-based songwriting to bold new heights in the studio.

Moose Jaw Express: Ten Years Serving the Community 2018 marked ten years the Moose Jaw Express has been published in the Friendly City, initially as the Moose Jaw Value Express. The paper initially started out as a small advertising edition with very little local content but two years later, noticing the need for a community newspaper to meet the needs of local and regional business advertising, as well as first-hand written articles about the people and events going on in

the City of Moose Jaw, the Moose Jaw Express was born. 2018 was a year with certain setbacks but unprecedented growth for the Express. In the wee hours of the morning of January 11th, 2018, the Moose Jaw Express office at 32 Manitoba Street experienced a fire and burnt. The only things salvageable were the computer harddrives.

Historic sign remounted on 4th Avenue Thunder Viaduct Bridge A sign that was on the historic 4th Avenue Thunderbird Viaduct, that was lost nearly 30 years ago, was found and remounted in early January. The historic sign was remounted on the green railed fence, just prior to the Bridge’s northwest corner. After falling off its location a number of years ago, the sign was kept in storage and was eventually set to remount on the bridge.


Without missing a beat, the Express relocated to the vacant old Times Herald building on Fairford Street and within three work days published their weekly paper. In September, the Express moved back into 32 Manitoba Street to continue serving the community in numerous capacities, including Moose Jaw’s only hard copy newspaper, print and promotional products, signs and much more.

Good things are happening; Keep your eyes open for more as Moose Jaw Express continues to expand.

Incredible support for Journey to Hope Close to 200 people packed the chapel at Jones Funeral Home on Sept. 22nd as part of the 2018 Journey to Hope event.

Having that opportunity and having the chance to do so among so many others who have been through similar situations is what makes the Journey so invaluable when it comes to the often-difficult healing process. Members of the Journey to Hope drum group perform.

Sarah Pouteaux BAUCK Henry George Bauck, aged 89 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away suddenly on the morning of Wednesday, December 26th, 2018. Henry was born on January 24th, 1929 on his Grandpa and Grandma Bauck’s farm north of Chaplin. He was predeceased by his wife, Aileen (Adrian) Bauck; grandson, Michael Gerbrandt; parents, Rueben and Ada Bauck; and brother-in-law, Ivan Marzolf. Henry will be dearly missed by his wife, Sylvia (Ward) Bauck and her children: Wanda, Heather, Edith, Arthur, and Garth, and their families; as well as his family: son, Rod (Debbie) Bauck; grandson, Rod (Jenn) Bauck and their boys Keaton and Beckett; grandson, Larson Bauck and his boys Hudson and Brydon; daughter, Terrill (Clarence) Gerbrandt; granddaughter-in-law, Julie Gerbrandt and their children Janaya, Kianna, and Joel; grandson, Dean (Julie) Gerbrandt and their children Robyn (Brandon) and their baby Brody, Sarah (Kurt), Tilynn, and Brendan; granddaughter, Lacey (Matt) Owens and their children Coulson, Cooper, and Cadence; son, Dwight (Joan) Bauck; grandson, Jeff (Selina) Bauck and their children Casey, Madison, and Carter; son, Mitch (Brenda) Bauck; sister, Helen Marzolf; as well as many cousins and friends. Henry grew up on the farm, attended the Bothwell school, and graduated High School at Central Collegiate in Moose Jaw, SK. He went on to farm and spent his winters in Vancouver, where he worked on the tugboats. On November 14th, 1952 he took Aileen Adrian as his bride and they made their home, farming north of Val Jean, SK. Henry spent his lifetime doing what he loved so much - farming with his family, in addition to working as a Hail Adjuster with SK Municipal Hail Insurance and serving many years as a Councillor and the Reeve of the RM of Chaplin. Henry suffered the loss of his wife Aileen in 2003 and was given a second chance at love when he married Sylvia Ward on March 28th, 2009. They later made their home at the Caleb Manner in Moose Jaw, where they were welcomed by many friends. Henry was a very social person and dearly loved by so many, whether it was through his love of travelling, being a shuffleboard champion, golfing, playing pool, so many intense games of cribbage, and of course – playing the best pranks. His family will always remember the many fishing trips they were fortunate enough to take with him. Henry will be missed for so many reasons but more than anything, his sense of humour and his infectious chuckle. A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, December 31st, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home with Pastor Marvin Seaborg officiating. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Henry’s name may be made to the Chaplin Lutheran Church or to a charity of one’s choice. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Calvin Gammel, Funeral Director 306-693-4550

Sarah Pouteaux passed away on December 10, 2018, at the Foyer d’Youville in Gravelbourg, SK, with family at her side on her 106th birthday. She was born on December 10, 1912, to Margaretta and George Hoffman on the family homestead six miles north of Hodgeville, SK. There she attended the Fair Valley School. In 1924, the family moved to a farm in the Kelstern district. Being the second oldest in a family of 12, and having her dad killed in a farming accident at the age of 50, she knew what work was. After her schooling, Sarah worked as a housekeeper in various places. This brought her to the Bateman district where she started working for a widowed farmer, Arthur Pouteaux. He had two young children at the time. Sarah and Arthur were married on November 24, 1939. Together they added an additional three daughters to the family. Sarah worked hard in the mixed farming operation her and Arthur operated, and grew large gardens for canning and pickling. Sarah sewed most of her children’s clothing and knit mitts, gloves, socks, toques, scarves, and sweaters. She loved to play piano and sing. In 1970, Sarah and Arthur retired to Gravelbourg. Following Arthur’s death on December 26, 1972, Sarah moved to Moose Jaw to be closer to her Seventh Day Adventist Church. Her very strong faith played a great part of her life. Sarah enjoyed travelling to Hawaii, Egypt and the Dominican Republic, but definitely the greatest pastime in her retirement was making quilts. She especially enjoyed sewing. At the age of 94, Sarah moved to Chateau St. Michael’s in Moose Jaw. Then, at the age of 100, she moved to the Foyer d’Youville in Gravelbourg. Sarah enjoyed life to the fullest by keeping active, singing, and taking part in exercises and activities. Right to the end when asked, “How are you feeling?” her reply was always, “Couldn’t be better.” Sarah leaves to mourn her loving family, daughters Iris (Robert) McNeill, Myrna Rolfe, Linda (Ross) Armson, Ruth (Lawrence) Deobald; grandchildren Carol Henderson, Cheryl (Rod) Hoshowsky, Wayne McNeill (Candi Bartley), Joanne (Dale) Petersen, Doug Rolfe (Coralee Watkins), Loretta (Andrew) Rolfe Unger, Lorelei (Jeffrey) Burnett, Maureen (John) Borges, Melanie (Chris) Babbitt, Gregory (Nicole) Armson, Grant (Rosalee) Armson, Victor (Brenda) Pouteaux, Edith (Wilf) Dyck, Dale (Michelle) Pouteaux, Donald (Melody) Pouteaux, Ronald (Marcia) Pouteaux, Christine Jansen, Marian (Charlie) Edelman, Deldeen (Bob) Rusk, George Deobald, Dwaine Deobald; 56 great grandchildren and 41 great-great grandchildren; brother Irvin (Shirley) Hoffman; sister-in-law Joyce Hoffman.

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

On Assignment Happy New Year dear readers! I was reminiscing of some of my childhood memories of past Christmas holidays and New Years Eve experiences. One that comes to mind was when I was probably 12 or 13 years old; my family had been invited to some nearby neighbors for the evening. This family had blessed Sis and I many times throughout the years; taking us golfing at the Hillcrest Golf Course (renting a golf cart was the highlight!), countless Warrior games and always stopping at the Snow Hut on our way out of town so we knew that New Years Eve would be no different. Let’s just say the banquet table was overflowing with food, salty and sweet. The three of us kids made our home on the living room floor while we settled in for a night of games for hours on end. We also had treats alongside us as we played. It was a kids’ dream come true. The treats I had eyed up were those pastel-colored party mints. You know the kind... the little wafer-type confectionary made by Allan called “Misty Mints” – smooth mint drops. They were separated in four compartments of orange, mint, peach and peppermint flavors and came in a rosette shape; made of something like white chocolate, but flavoured with mint. That New Years Eve I kept eating and eating and eating those delicious morsels until the clock struck midnight when I began to feel nauseous and sick to my stomach. We had such a fun night of games and eating but it was spoiled by my overindulgence of Misty Mints. Unfortunately, since Hershey bought out the Allan confectionary company, they discontinued this candy; maybe this is for my betterment. This reminds me of the true story of the Amalekites who “...had made a raid against the Negeb and against Ziklag ... And when David and his men came to the city, they found it burned with fire, and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive.” When David found out, he and his men were very distraught. Encouraging himself in the Lord, he enquired of Abiathar, the priest, of what to do. The priest answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake and shall surely rescue.”   So David set out, finding a young Egyptian along the way who had been with the Amalekites but left behind due to illness. After David nursed him to health, the young man directed David and his army to the enemies. When they arrived, they found the men “...spread abroad over all the land, eating and drinking and dancing, because of all the great spoil they had taken from the land of the Philistines and from the land of Judah. (So) David struck them down from twilight until the evening of the next day, and not a man of them escaped, except four hundred young men, who mounted camels and fled.  David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken, and David rescued his two wives.  Nothing was missing, whether small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken. David brought back all.”  I think it is safe to say we’ve all overindulged in something at some point in our life. The danger is to live with no boundaries, greed and not knowing when to stop, thus finding ourselves reaping the consequences. Have a safe and self-controlled New Years! “For the grace of God has appeared... training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age.” Scripture references: 1 Samuel 30, Titus 2:11,12

Like all parents, Sommer Amare wants to leave her children with a better world to live in. When the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released its report on Oct. 8, Amare first felt alarmed and dismayed, but soon felt spurred to act. “I want to be able to tell my kids that we did everything we can,” Amare said. “I don’t want to say ‘oh sorry, China didn’t do their part, so we didn’t do anything either.’ I want to be able to tell them what I did here to help.” The UN report was commissioned in 2016 and warned that if global warming isn’t kept to a maximum of 1.5C by 2030, even a half degree beyond that will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods and extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people. “It was five days after the report came out and I put on my Facebook page ‘Is anybody talking about this? Because it’s a pretty big deal. Is nobody having conversations that we have 10 years to make a big change here?’” said Amare. Amare and Gwen Fisher began discussing things they could do within their community that would have an impact and they decided to form a group. The group wants to put forward positive and effective ideas and plans that the community can implement so that they can do their part in reversing climate change. “(The UN report) was the big shocker to me and then Gwen said that she was wondering the same thing too. So, we threw it out there to friends and family and about a dozen people came to the first meeting,” Amare said. After three meetings at the public library, the group hasn’t finalized a name, but the roots of some projects are taking hold. Three areas of early focus have been planting trees, making bicycling more accessible and solar energy. The group hosted a solar panel information night at the end of November as well. “It’s really easy to circle around ideas, but I’m really hoping to see us take some real action. I would love to try to do so much that we inspire other communities to do so too,” Amare said. While individuals like Amare in the group do things on their own that benefit the environment, there was a feeling like they weren’t making the difference that

they need to make individually, so “we need to get together and do something big,” Amare said. “I think that’s why I’m so passionate about the tree project because trees make a big impact in the amount of carbon that is in the air.” The members of the group aren’t trying to necessarily re-invent the wheel. There are programs in other communities and provinces that they can draw inspiration from and take ideas from to implement here. “In Alberta every second grade student has access to getting a tree to plant if they want and other provinces have an arbour day, where there are free trees available for people who wish to plant them,” Amare said. “It’s going to how to connect the dots of what’s available, what can we do, who wants to be a part of it and what resources can we find. “It’s going to take a lot of hands, but I think it can happen.” Given the importance of the province’s resource-based industry on the economy, issues relating to climate change and green technology can be divisive and easily politicized.

“It doesn’t have to be that way. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. We’re going to have to be on some sort of integrated system, but we can’t be afraid of solar and renewable resources in the way that we are,” Amare said. “I think we’re being very resistant to change. There are solutions and ways we can do this. There are new technologies every day. It doesn’t help to hate on oil and gas. It doesn’t help anybody.” During the meeting the point was made that much of the convenience of modern society is built on oil and gas. The group has more than 100 members on their Facebook page and are trying be inclusive and show that everyone has a role to play in creating a healthy environment for the future. “Everybody is welcome,” Amare said. “We can make a difference when we get together.” The group will meet again on Jan. 2 at 7 p.m., but are still determining the location. The specifics will all be posted on their Facebook page at “Together we can make a difference - Moose Jaw.”
