The Friendly City welcomes first baby of 2019 Sasha-Gay Lobban





One local family is elated — smiling from ear-to-ear as they welcomed the newest member to their family, a beautiful baby girl, who also happens to be the first baby born in Moose Jaw for 2019. The Cruickshank family — Steven James and Rachelle Domonique, welcomed their first baby together, Astraea Raelynn Cruickshank on Wednesday, January 2nd. She was born at 3:52 a.m., weighing 6lbs 13oz and 20 ½ inches long. “We’re very excited to welcome our bundle of joy,” the proud parents said as they looked on at their beautiful baby girl. “It’s exciting to also have her be the first baby of 2019. A lot of people have come out to congratulate us. We never expected so many people to come out to see us. We love the general community support we’ve received. It’s really nice and we’re very happy.” Beverley Morrell from the Welcome Wagon visited the family and provided some well-needed newborn gifts. “We’re excited to welcome the first baby of the year in Moose Jaw. We welcome every baby that’s born in the city each year. This is the first in several years since we’ve been able to do a gift presentation to the ‘New Year’s baby’ and we’re happy that we were able to be on board this year,” said Morrell. “We provided some important gifts for the newborn as well as information


about support and resources available in the community for the family.” The Welcome Wagon is a Canadian-owned group/service for families experiencing lifestyle change; having a baby, moving to a new city/neighborhood, and more. They help to make the transition easier for families. Moose Jaw’s mayor, Fraser Tolmie also visited the family to meet the New Year’s baby. “I congratulate the family on welcoming their beautiful baby girl on behalf of the City. It’s always great to welcome a new Moose Javian,” Tolmie said. The local business community also got together to provide a variety of gifts for the family and their new addition. Rob Clark, CEO of the Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce said local businesses jumped on board to provide great gifts for the family. “We sent out a request to the business community for gifts for the New Year’s baby and within minutes, we got several businesses who reached out immediately with different gifts and ideas. So, we’re thankful to the business community who reached out and provided gifts for the family. I also want to thank the Welcome Wagon for organizing the presentation and doing this for the family,” said Clark. Mix 103 & Ghostfinger Productions presents:

The busy weeks leading up to the Christmas season generally keep us occupied with rewarding activities. While the start of a new year brings renewed hope and optimism, January tends to move at a slower pace and offers limited daylight hours. Many of us will experience what is commonly referred to as the “Winter Blues� or “January Blues.� This may require more effort to maintain good mental health. A healthy diet, regular exercise, and practicing gratitude can help us to maintain a positive outlook. It is estimated that one in five Canadians will experience mental health challenges throughout their lifetime. For those who are living with persistent conditions, appropriate supports and services are extremely important. Too often people suffer in silence, fearing a stigma that unfortunately views mental health differently from physical illness. Our government recognized that better mental health services and treatment were needed. In 2013, consultations on how to improve services began, culminating with the Mental Health and Addictions Action Plan which guides the government in making needed improvements. Your Saskatchewan Party government has increased funding for mental health services by 60 per cent to approximately $290 million annually. This funding is in addition to the approximately $46 million allocated to addictions services each year. Recently, additional mental health supports were introduced in Moose Jaw. In November, a new Police and Crisis Team (PACT) became operational. PACT pairs

members of the Moose Jaw Police Service with a mental health professional when responding to individuals who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The goal is to provide the right kind of care to people who are better-served within the community, thereby avoiding emergency department visits or entry into the criminal justice system. Similar units are also now in place in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, North Battleford, and Yorkton. A little over a year ago, a new housing complex – Wakamow Place II – officially opened to individuals with complex needs. The 12-unit facility is next door to Wakamow Place, where mental health supports are available if needed. Funding has also been invested in a new training program launched last month that will better equip physicians to assess and treat mental health conditions in children and youth. Thanks to the Canadian Mental Health Association, many local businesses now have Suicide Help Cards with information to assist someone in a crisis. Mental Health First Aid Courses are offered several times a year. Like the regular First Aid courses we are familiar with, Mental Health First Aid equips individuals to respond in a helpful way to assist someone towards getting needed, professional help. It is encouraging to see local organizations working together to provide mental health services in our community. The Saskatchewan Health Authority, the staff at the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital, the Canadian Mental Health Association, and Thunder Creek Rehabilitation Association all provide supports not only for treatment, but also prevention of mental health-related conditions. We can do our part by becoming more informed on maintaining our own mental health, knowing the signs of when to seek help, and learning how we can help others. For mental health support at any time of the day or night, you can pick up the phone and call HealthLine by dialing 8-1-1. HealthLine’s registered Psychiatric Nurses and social workers can offer advice to help you manage your situation, or give you information about resources in the community.

End of an era as Pascoe’s Machine Works closes Matthew Gourlie

It was a bittersweet end of 2018 for the Ozog family and the end of an era in Moose Jaw. December 31 was the last day of business at Pascoe’s Machine Works on High Street West. Cecil Frank Ozog bought the business on January 1, 1963 and has owned it ever since. His sons Larry and Ron have been running the business, but decided to retire at the end of the year. “It just felt like it was time. Forty-seven years full time in a job is more than a lifetime,� said Larry Ozog. The Ozog family has ties to the store going back generations. Cec’s first pay stub from Roman’s Machine & Repair Co. -- as it was called then -- is still in the top drawer of the desk in the main office. He was paid 40 cents an hour for the week of June 23, 1945.

“We’ve been working summers since the end of Grade 12, so around 1971 we pretty much started full time.�

was their home for most of their lives and the loyal customers they’ve seen frequently over the decades. So what does the future hold? “My brother has some projects he’s wanted to do for years and me, I’m not sure,� said Larry who added that his brother has “always played around with vehicles� and will now have more time to spend on some of those projects. Cec Ozog, who will be 92 in March, still owns the business and Larry said it’s still undecided right now what’s going to happen with the building and the business going forward.

The original shop was located at the current site of Safeway. By the time the Ozogs were involved, the shop had relocated to 412 High St. W. They moved to their current location at 353 High St. W. in 1985. When Pascoe bought out his partner in the 1950s, he changed the name of the shop to his surname. Larry and Ron have been working in the shop since they were kids in the 1960s. “We’ve been cleaning the shop up ever since he bought it,� Ozog said. “We’ve been working summers since the end of Grade 12, so around 1971 we pretty much started full time.� The stock in the front of the shop was starting to thin in its final week of operation, but the stream of well-wishers was thick and steady to the small office. “Some of them have been coming in and wishing us

good luck and saying goodbye and it’s kind of sad at both ends,� Larry said. “The other day there were five or six of them in at the same time saying goodbye and wishing us luck. “We’ve met some very nice people over the years.� In the back part of the shop, some of the machines are more than 80 years old. Larry is 66 and Ron is 65 and both have been at least helping out at the shop for 56 years. Larry said that working in the shop growing up, he never really contemplated not working in the shop and in the family business. He said what he enjoyed the most about working at Pascoe’s was helping people and fixing their broken parts. The brothers are looking forward to retirement, though with a tinge of sadness leaving the shop that

Sometimes it is difficult to find good news coming from seats of government, and more often than not, the good news is shunted aside so constituents are able to deal with not-so-happy situations. In Moose Jaw lately the news from City Hall has mostly been that of the not-so-happy variety: a tax increase expected to Joyce Walter be higher than previously preFor Moose Jaw Express dicted; potential soaring costs for water that have enraged certain consumers; the possibility that the expiring hospital levy will remain on tax bills in the form of an infrastructure surcharge; and of course, the questionable handling of matters relating to the board members of Mosaic Place and Yara Centre. Despite all of those issues, some good news stories have emerged. The announcement by SaskPower that Moose Jaw has been chosen for a new power plant has put huge smiles on the faces of local residents, with pats on the back making the rounds at City Hall. It should be noted that accolades deserve to be shared with a previous administration and council because of their foresight in developing a new industrial park on the city’s south side and then making it known that Moose Jaw welcomed new ventures to locate there. How soon we forget the individuals responsible for the initial legwork — there should be enough praise for everyone to share in this development. The news that a national curling tournament in the form of the Scotties will come to Moose Jaw in 2020 was another good news announcement and certainly there is already work underway to ensure it will put Moose Jaw on the map once again in curling circles. Hopefully parking issues will be resolved by then. Community and area residents are still flying high over the announcement that a full-blown air show will highlight the month of July 2019 at 15 Wing Moose Jaw. The last show of such scale was held in 2005 and air show enthusiasts are pumped that once again the sky south of Moose Jaw will showcase the best in aviation skills. But despite those exciting announcements, likely the best news for an entire municipal population relates to snow — the clearance plan the city quietly announced near the end of 2018. Snowy streets and garbage collection are the two issues that will quickly enrage residents so when the 24-hour snow clearance plan was announced, smiles appeared and those responsible for the decision were the momentary heroes of the day. Now citizens wait to see how efficiently this year’s snowfall events will be handled. Imagine how happy we will be if we wake after a significant snowfall to hear the graders working around the clock to clear our path on the main roadways of the city. Good news indeed.

Report from the Legislature

MLA, Lumsden-Morse

A new year is a time for optimism and renewal – and here in Saskatchewan we see encouraging signs that our best days are still to come. Despite the challenges facing our energy sector, people continue to see Saskatchewan as a great place to live, work and invest. In addition to the 16,000 new jobs over the past year, which gave us the best rate of job growth in western Canada, Saskatchewan grew by 3,841 people in the latest quarter. This represents the 50th consecutive quarter of population growth – the longest sustained period of population growth in Saskatchewan since quarterly records started being kept in 1971. Saskatchewan’s record growth has strengthened our province and allowed your Saskatchewan Party government to make important investments to improve health, education, infrastructure, and the overall quality of life for all people who call Saskatchewan home. There is always more to do. For example, we have heard that too many rural areas still have poor cellular coverage and slow internet service – so we’re working to fix that. The Wireless Saskatchewan initiative is our plan to improve wireless services, with Phase 2 of that plan addressing 100 rural communities that had no cellular coverage or fringe service at best. The deployment of small cellular sites will improve the level of service by next year. High-speed internet and cellular connections are incredibly important to all of us, and this initiative will greatly benefit many residents, farms, and businesses who call rural Saskatchewan home. The first 50 towers will be completed and operating by March 31, 2019 with remaining new small community

towers functioning by March 31, 2020. Meanwhile, major infrastructure investments continue in larger urban centres. The new Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford, Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon, and The Regina Bypass are all on track to be completed later this year. In addition to these major projects, our government recently announced a $9.6 million investment in major improvements to the Winnipeg Street overpass in Regina. The new overpass will significantly improve connections among the city’s major arterial roads, providing more efficient commutes and supporting the growth and development of our capital city. The investment in the Winnipeg Street overpass is part of more than $37 million in direct provincial infrastructure investments for key City of Regina projects in the last two years alone. At the end of the holiday season, many of us are starting to plan – or at least think about – our summer getaways. Starting in April, visitors will be able to reserve campsites for in Saskatchewan provincial parks on a new and improved online reservation site. The upgraded site enhances the overall visitor experience and increase online services, such as seasonal bookings. This year, seasonal campsites will be moved to the online reservation system. Due to high demand for seasonal sites, a queuing system will be used to ensure a fair process. For seasonal campsites, customers will only be able to book for one person in one campsite with one payment. Reservations for seasonal campsites will open Tuesday, April 2 at 7:00 a.m. Group campsites will also be added to the online reservation system this year. Starting on Thursday, April 4, sites can be booked online year-round or through the call centre up until October. School and youth groups will continue to book by calling the parks directly. Nightly reservations for 2019 campsites will open at 7:00 a.m. Monday, April 8. Staggered launch dates and a queuing system will be implemented again to help provide the best user experience possible during reservations. For additional details on fees, and seasonal and group campsite reservations, visit

Lake Diefenbaker irrigators switch to more wheat crops By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Irrigators in the Lake Diefenbaker Development Area planted more wheat in 2018 – 16,500 acres compared with 12,700 the previous year. Wheat accounted for nearly one-quarter of the 65,400 irrigated acres in the region. The other major acreage change in the area, according to an irrigation survey, was in alfalfa/ grass with 8,200 acres, an increase from 6,200 in 2017. Reacting to price, lentil acres fell from 4,300 to just over 1,000. Vegetable crop acres fell about one-third to 215 acres from 373 acres while potato crops dropped to 3,289 acres from 3,594. Hemp fell from 584 acres in 2017 to 167 acres. Corn/corn silage acres increased to 1,225 from 1,040. Since 2013, irrigated acres in the three irrigation districts around the lake have increased by 11 per cent to 67,480 acres, but dropped 273 acres in 2018. In 2013, cereal crops took 34 per cent of acres compared with 28 per cent in 2018. Oilseed crops took 33 per cent of land, down from 36 per cent this in 2018. Forage went from 11 per cent to 12 per cent while specialty crops went from 10 per cent to eight per cent of irrigated land over five years. Ron Walter can be reached at

Army worms to bother Lake Diefenbaker area A modest infestation of Bertha Army Worms is forecast by Saskatchewan Agriculture this year for a grasshopper-shaped area from north of Outlook EXPRESS down the lake south to Hodgeville, then east nearly to Moose Jaw, angling north to Watrous and Anaheim. A more sever infestation will happen just south of Outlook. Most of the province will have little or no infestation of these pests.

Salvation Army wraps up a successful year with Kettle Campaign surpassing $55,000 goal --Over 400 families benefit from campaign Sasha-Gay Lobban

Over 400 families were able to have a very special Christmas, thanks to the generous donations from the community to the Salvation Army’s Kettle Campaign. The Kettle Campaign aimed to raise $55,000 in cash as part of the Salvation Army’s mission to supply hampers to families in need for Christmas. The campaign however surpassed its goal and raised over $62,000 this year. Director of Community and Family Services at the Salvation Army, Major Dan Broome says this was made possible through the community that continues to whole heartedly support the Salvation Army and its programs which benefit Moose Jaw and Area. “The Kettle Campaign was very successful. We raised $62,515.31 and we were quite impressed, thanks to the people of Moose Jaw. The Christmas Kettle was able to pay for Christmas hampers to families in the community that are in need. After all that is paid for, the money left over is used to fund our food bank in order to provide assistance throughout the year,” said Major Broome. “Approximately 400 families were able to benefit from our campaign.” Major Broome also highlighted other programs he said were also very successful that made the holidays even more special for families. He added that there was an increase in the number of families that received assistance

Dan & Wendy Broome in 2018 compared to 2017. “There were other organizations that did things on our behalf that were very much successful. The Warriors did a ‘Teddy Bear Toss’ that was successful, and more teddy bears continue to come in. The ‘Toy Days’ put on by the local radio station was also a success that helped us provide toys to families in

Heel Pain? Now What? - Caring for Your Feet Dr. Ata Stationwala You wake up, step out of bed and bang! It’s like someone just shot you in the foot. You can’t put any pressure on your heel and you feel like you’ve aged 20 years overnight. Heel pain is a very common condition that I see in my practice. Heel pain can be the result of sudden injury or more repetitive strain of the soft tissues in the foot. It can affect children and adults. It can affect elite athletes as much as your average Joe. For most people who develop heel pain, it tends to be something that has a gradual onset. It tends to worsen over time until it gets to the point where the individual feels

they finally need to do something about it. Heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome, Achilles tendonitis, Sever’s disease etc. are some of the conditions that could be the culprit. The key with heel pain is not to wait. Get it assessed and treated as soon as you can. Know that, treating the symptoms is only half the battle. Anti-inflammatories will get you only so far. The key to resolving the pain quickly is to not just treat the symptoms but to treat the underlying cause. Imagine treating a painful abscessed tooth with pain medication only. The pain medication will make it feel better for a while, but it is not treating the infection which is ultimately the underlying cause. Heel pain can become a debilitating condition that can have a significant impact on your general well-being. Be proactive and seek help sooner than later.

Moose Jaw.” Overall, Major Broome says 2018 was a successful year for the Salvation Army as it was able to meet its goals through a variety of programs. “2018 was extremely busy but certainly rewarding. It is always a warm feeling to know you’ve helped as many people as possible. We certainly try to help as many people as we can, as long as they come to us. We are extremely grateful to the community for its continued support. We couldn’t have done it without the support of the community. They really opened their hearts and wallets to us when we needed them the most and we certainly appreciate that.” In 2018, the Salvation Army also embarked on some new programs that were also proven to be very successful. The programs were the Salvation Army’s ‘Bag Pack Campaign’ for children going back to school; ‘Weekly Café’ in support of Diversified Services and the ‘Seniors Feeding’ program which provides hot meals for seniors on a monthly basis. “Pretty much, all our new programs were well received and supported by the community. The programs were very successful and will re-commence again in January. We are looking forward to continue providing support in the community in the new year.”

Hot Pressure Washers!!


Green Party leader third choice for best prime minister

Near the year end some political pundits wrote pieces suggesting the Green Party could make an electoral break-through in 2019. The Greens have come out of their usual four to five per cent to eight per cent in the polls. If an election had been held in December, Greens would have douMPs from one to two by Ron Walter bled — hardly the definition of a breakthrough. Part of the columnists’ speculation may have come from a need to find a subject to write about in the slow news season. Part may have come from recent polls that show Green Party leader Elizabeth May ahead of NDP leader Jagmeet Singh as a choice for the best prime minister. May leads the bumbling Singh – eight per cent to seven per cent. Conservative leader Andrew Scheer leads for the first time at 33 per cent to 27 for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Speculation of the Green Party success derives from other factors. To win the last federal election Trudeau won over

tons of young voters with his promises on the environment — a carbon tax and stringent regulations — and an end to the first-past-the-post election system. He has not delivered on either, leaving young idealistic voters four years older and quite disillusioned. Some pundits are betting these voters will bolt from their second choice NDP to the Greens. The polls seem to indicate that might happen. Votes in this 18-34 age group often tend to not vote, except the Trump experience may have taught them the importance of voting. Climate change and the science behind it are a key issue for these younger voters. Certainly, the Conservative Party offers no home for this group. Twenty-one per cent of Conservatives deny climate change science; 35 per cent believe climate change is created by natural causes. Polls show only nine per cent of Canadians deny climate change; 19 per cent believe climate change is created by natural causes. Among the 18-34 age group, 84 per cent believe climate change is very serious or serious, while the 55plus group has 73 per cent on the same page. Changes in provincial politics has some pundits suggesting Green Party success. The Greens hold 18.2 per cent support in B.C. where they are expected to win two seats.

Disillusionment with Trudeau’s purchase of the Trans-Mountain Pipeline could drive B.C. voters to the Greens. In Prince Edward Island, Greens hold 35 per cent support in a tight three-way provincial race. P.E.I. voters are fed up with the three old parties. If Green support is translated federally in P.E.I. the party could see up to four federal MPs in Ottawa. With the exception of a possible P.E.I. breakthrough the probability of national Green Party success is unlikely. Younger voters do not have the same party allegiance as older voters, many of whom support the same party their family has supported for generations. Younger voters tend to embrace policy. A government led by Andrew Scheer’s Conservative party, where two-thirds of supporters either do not believe in climate change, or believe that it is caused by Mother Nature, is unacceptable to younger voters. As they have done before, Green Party supporters will likely vote strategically to keep the “dinosaurs” from power. Holding their noses, they will probably vote Liberal. Ron Walter can be reached at

GAX growing every year as gamers dream big Matthew Gourlie

Every six months, the Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association’s biannual GAX (gamer’s expo) gets bigger. The MJGA is anticipating their Winter GAX in February will be their biggest yet, but a month from the start of the weekend event, they still have no way of knowing for sure. For the first time they’ve offered pre-registration and despite offering a draw for a $50 gift card multiple outlets of the winner’s choice -- depending on their interests -- the pre-registration has failed to take off. “It just makes it so hard to plan when you have no idea how many people are coming,” said Kristian Sjoberg from the Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association. “We don’t expect 100 per cent of people to pre-register, but if we could get 50 or 75 per cent to pre-register it gives you a ballpark.” Winter GAX runs Feb. 1-3 at St. Joseph’s Church and participants can register to play either internet-connected LAN (local area network) games or board games. The event runs from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. on the Friday, from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. “It’s basically 48 hours with a little nap in between,” Sjoberg said. The Winter GAX has always out-drawn the Summer GAX, but the 2018 summer event drew a record crowd of 83 people, which has organizers expecting a big crowd for Winter GAX. To help gauge numbers they offered a reduced price of $25 for the LAN games and $15 for board

The Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association will host their Winter GAX from Feb. 1-3 at St. Joseph’s Church. games for anyone who registered by Jan. 18. The price for the LAN games goes back up to $30 after the early deadline.

“We want every single dollar from these gaming expos to go back to Moose Jaw. That’s our prime mandate.” -Kristian Sjoberg “Board games are picking up in popularity,” Sjoberg said. “We used to be about 75-25 for internet games to board games.

Now we’re probably closer to 60 board games and 40 per cent internet games.” Sjoberg said that Overwatch and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds are both popular titles with the LAN crowd, while GAX offers a great chance for board game aficionados to try something new. “We’ve got a couple of guys, Jacob Hart and Kevin Acorn, who have a few hundred board games, and they have a list and they post it on our Facebook page for people to look at and if there are any of them that they want to try, these guys will bring it down and teach them how to play it. There’s hundreds and hundreds of board games that we have access to,” said Sjoberg who added that group games like One Night Ultimate Werewolf have been popular in the past. “Usually there is someone who will put on a Dungeons & Dragons or a Pathfinder campaign for the weekend.” As the crowds grow, Sjoberg would love to see the event expand and branch out while still staying true to its mandate to be a weekend about gaming. “We’re hoping to expand a little more this year and get a little more into the cosplay,” he said. “Last year Kevin came down with a Reinhardt costume from Overwatch. It was a big, huge blue warrior with a giant hammer and took pictures with people. It was pretty cool. “We’re trying to get into that a little bit to

try to get more people into it.” One thing that will never change is the GAX commitment to charity. Every year the proceeds from the event are donated to a local charity. Sjoberg is also the president of the local branch of the SaskTel Pioneers. The Pioneers and SaskTel head office both sponsor one GAX a year -- Sjoberg points out that they applied to SaskTel the same as any other charity would -- and SaskTel is going to match the donations that they make from the proceeds of this Winter GAX. SaskTel Pioneers have a literacy initiative and Sjoberg is hoping that each school division will get a healthy donation later this year from the event. “Last year we gave $1,250 to Hunger in Moose Jaw,” Sjoberg said. “This isn’t a profit gaming expo, this is entirely non-profit. We cover our costs for the internet and the hall. Family Pizza is now a major sponsor and they donate all of the pizzas and Moosenet Computer Services do all of the networking for us for free. “Without those two sponsors, we wouldn’t be able to (make the donation). It’s a free pizza party on Saturday, it’s $600-700 worth of pizza he donates.” He said that the charity component is important to the gamers and gives them an outlet to enjoy a hobby in a way that they’re comfortable. “They want to give back, but they don’t want to talk to people,” Sjoberg said of some of the introverted gamers. “We want every single dollar from these gaming expos to go back to Moose Jaw. That’s our prime mandate.” The first GAX was held in 2010 and while it continues to grow, Sjoberg has a far grander vision of what it could be as the popularity of gaming continues to grow. “Basically, our dream is for it to be the Comic-Con of the north and have 20,000 people descend on Moose Jaw and play board games, video games and cosplay,” Sjoberg said. “That’s our dream -- mine and Jess Hallswoth, who is our president -- to take over the Exhibition Grounds and Mosaic Place and it’s just gaming for three days straight. And every penny that goes above our costs goes back to charities in Moose Jaw.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS A virtual smorgasbord of buffet delights As I sat musing during a writer’s block moment the other day, the extraordinary thought process got underway and for some reason this process swept me along to a table of food and what it should be called. I have no idea from where the question came but I asked myself at that moJoyce Walter ment: when did the term “smorgasbord” get deFor Moose Jaw Express voured by the term “buffet?” In my growing-up years a country table laden with a variety of foods was called a “potluck supper,” not to be confused with the sandwiches and sweets served at dances in the community hall. They were simply midnight lunches and bore no relationship to potluck, that being when community residents brought enough food to feed their own family, plus one other. The food was laid out starting with salads and main courses and ending with pies and cakes and fudge and other delights to tickle the taste buds. My Dad often referred to such occasions as hoping to have the “good luck” not to get food from a kitchen “pot” that hadn’t been cleaned properly before it was

brought forth to have its contents shared by the community. He was always shushed to avoid his comments being heard by anyone who might have been responsible for the offensive “pot.” It wasn’t until Moose Jaw restaurants began advertising Saturday and Sunday smorgasbords that I wondered how they differed from hearty country fare at potluck suppers. And then after a few decades of smorgasbords, we suddenly became overtaken by “buffet” meals, with smorgasbords only being referred to when related to a dinner featuring Swedish dishes. Being somewhat puzzled as to when and why this transition of terms took place, I turned to my usually-reliable www source where I learned that in today’s terms, the titles are somewhat interchangeable, both meaning an offering of a variety of hot and cold meats, salads, hor d’oeuvres, etc. In the true smorgasbord fashion, diners would be expected to visit the food table five different times, eating different foods at each visit. The term “buffet” became popular in the latter half of the 20th century, with no apparent need to eat different foods each trip, nor being expected to load up five times. Wouldn’t you know it, there are rules for patronizing an all-you-can-eat buffet table at a restaurant: wear loose clothing to accommodate the amount of food one is likely to consume; eat the expensive food first, such as steak, shrimp, lobster or prime rib; and use a din-

ner plate or a soup bowl for dessert so as to get one’s share in case the desserts are not replenished. In a private home, buffet rules are based on making sure not to show any form on gluttony in case the hostess runs short of food. A restaurant that runs out of food or doesn’t replenish the serving dishes will soon earn a black mark on social media, or via other word-of-mouth ratings. A private hostess will not face such public criticism because money does not change hands. A good rule of thumb, my sources say, is to arrive early so the food is fresh, hot and in abundant supply. The lettuce salads should be crisp, not wilted or brown around the edges. Three leaves at the bottom of the bowl does not constitute much of a salad. Another rule is to walk around the entire buffet area to scope out what is available then fill plates and bowls appropriately. If the beef looks overcooked and dry, maybe an extra perogy or second spoon off the salad bar might be in order. And if there are no crackers or seafood forks for the crab legs, bypass them for the safety of others at the table. Flying crab leg shells could be dangerous. So there you have it: a smorgasbord of rules for not over-indulging at public and private buffets. You’re welcome! Joyce Walter can be reached at

Former Assiniboia residents invented unique cribbage board game By Ron Walter for Moose Jaw Express

starting at



Back in the day when Wayne Tardif and Myles Werklund were a lot younger, they played cribbage many nights for entertainment. Tiring of the game, they invented a new cribbage board game, starting a 30-year chase of big-time success for the former Assiniboia residents. Werklund had already invented a board game based on the Canadian Football League and had seen his creation rejected by a board game company. All this happened when Trivial Pursuit was at the height of its popularity and wannabee inventors were churning out 1,000 new board games a year hoping to cash in on the rage. Undaunted by what they didn’t know, the duo did the trade show circuit selling and promoting the Cribbage Board Game. They did okay, repaying a $5,000 loan in two years. But there were bumps along the road like the inquisitive lady at one trade show. Weeks after that trade show, they received a letter from a lawyer ordering them to cease and desist because they were infringing on a competing cribbage board

game’s copyright. After obtaining a copy of the competitor’s rules they informed him there was no copyright infringement. They never heard back. Another bump came when they licensed the game to a manufacturer, only to see that company go under. They kept on in the spirit of entrepreneurs. Their latest change was the name, now called Screw You Cribbage — an attempt to draw more attention in stores that carry the game. Tardif and Werklund, now respectively living in Emerald Park and Calgary, did another big trade show at Agribition this year. Werklund demonstrated the game, playing against a 12-year-old, who pegged the first score — a nine on a board six spot. Each player is dealt 12 cards; each takes three, playing them on the board and replenishing from the initial 12 cards. Players still make runs, pairs and 15-2s, but just do it on the board.

CORNER I always knew it would happen someday, and sure enough it happened this year — and the meeting of the minds materialized in the blink of an eye. “Weâ€? all say we “know a guyâ€? who helps Santa during “thatâ€? time by Dale “bushyâ€? Bush of year and there are a few of us‌er, them, who take the “acting gigâ€? seriously enough to try and be authentic. So we‌ er, they, grow our beards to an acceptable “Santaâ€? length. An authentic white beard is much less annoying than the expensive fake wigs and beards, and children of all ages easily recognize the difference. After the season is over most of us‌er, them, get trimmed, some get shaven, and this year the local members of the “Guys who know a guyâ€? all seemed to be in the barbershop at the same time‌ a day before New Year’s Eve. Some of the guys were there for the full treatment, haircut and a shave, others for a trim, but without a word being said about why our beards were longer and whiter. We all seemed to “know a guy.â€? There were a few of the guys “who know a guyâ€?

I Know A Guy‌

that were a little better known than the others because they were the Mall Santas. In our neck of the woods, we had four or five of them, three of which were in line for a haircut. There were a few freelancers “who know a guyâ€? and they are the Christmas party Santas, like the “guy I know,â€? and most of them will turn their performance honorariums over to charities. The “guy I knowâ€? supports his two favorite charities, the SPCA and his local foodbank, and he gets a tremendous amount of joy by doing that for over 30 years. In total, there were six of us who “know a guy,â€? and we couldn’t have been a jollier bunch. The one guy in line for a haircut that seemed out of place was a clean-cut, beardless millennial and the other guys who “know a guyâ€? all agreed that he should move to front of the line to allow for the secret handshakes to take place and the stories to be told. He accepted the honour, and I am sure he never realized the common thread among those who let him go ahead‌ other than we were all old. As soon as he left the small barbershop with a fresh haircut we allowed the oldest guy “who knows a guyâ€? to lead our little haircutting parade and then we all began to brag about our various non-monetary rewards for helping out the Jolly Old Elf. One guy who knows a guy mentioned that he may have had the youngest visitor of his career at

the ripe old age of two days old, which of course led to a discussion about the oldest person to sit on Santa’s lap this season. That honour went to a freelancer who visits seniors’ homes and his oldest lap-sitter was 103 years young (who apparently challenged Santa to prove he is 400 years old). One of the mall guys who knows a guy told the story of an eight-year-old son of a friend who claimed that his dad said he wasn’t the real Santa. Santa, knowing the dad really well, told the son, “That’s okay, he’s not your real dad,� and our jolly old bellies shook with laughter. The cool thing is that every-one of us guys who know a guy had a beautiful story from this season or from the past and we all agreed that, yes, sometimes it is nice to get an honorarium, but our rewards are the smiles and joy that a certain jolly old elf can produce. Only 50 weeks ‘til Christmas.

Brenda Lee Cottrell and The Legends to take you back to the ’60s Sasha-Gay Lobban

Brenda Lee Cottrell and The Legends, ‘The Memorable Music of the ’60s Legendary Ladies’ will take center stage at the Mae Wilson Theatre on Saturday, January 26, starting at 7pm. The show will take audience on a nostalgic journey through some of their favorite songs and performances from iconic women who paved the way for musicians today and music lovers across the globe. Brenda Lee Cottrell, whose stage presence captures and delivers these timeless classics, says while the show highlights and pays tribute to legendary artistes of the ’60s, the show is for everyone to enjoy as it brings a lot of diversity through the many genres of music performed during the show. “I love taking the audience on a ‘walk down memory lane’ as they re-live hits sung by some of the most iconic female singers of our time - from one of the most incredible and diverse musical eras...the ’60s,� she said. “My tribute is a multi-genre performance — country music, folk, early pop, R&B, British invasion... a little something for everyone. For the younger audience members who attend our shows, it is often a fascinating discovery of this great music. And for those who lived and remember this is a teleportation back to those times.� In addition to performing the ’60s hits, Cottrell says the audience will also enjoy the stories of some of these ‘Leg-

Brenda Lee Cottrell and The Legends

endary Ladies’ and how some of their most memorable songs came to be. “During the show, I often tell interesting stories about the music and the legendary ladies I am paying tribute to, as well as what is happening historically in the world at that time. All of the legendary ladies were unique from each other in their vocal styles and performance mannerism and I love changing costumes during the performance.� She says that sharing this era of music with audiences is a passion, but she has also evolved as a more diverse and dynamic performer. “My tribute show has always focused on the ’60s — the era I am most passionate about. But I have evolved it to now include some songs by Legendary Ladies of other eras. My ‘One Woman Tribute Show’ — which is also very well received and attended across Sask. and Alberta — now includes over 16 legendary ladies spanning the 1950s to the 1980s. This year we have added some great surprise elements to the show which everyone will have

to wait to see on show night, January 26th.� The popular show is coming to Moose Jaw for the fifth time and Cottrell says she is looking forward to another great turn out. “We last performed in Moose Jaw in 2016 and are looking forward to returning to one of Saskatchewan’s best venues. We always appreciate the warm reception we receive from the wonderful folks in Moose Jaw, and

love entertaining everyone who attends our shows. Tickets for ‘The Memorable Music of the 60’s Legendary Ladies’ are available at the Mae Wilson Theatre Box Office at 217 Main St. N and online at You can learn more about Brenda Cottrell and the latest about her upcoming shows at

How Canadian farmers manage financially with low returns on assets By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

Comments are often made about rich farmers, but just how do farm profits stack up by investing in the farm? In 2017, the average return in farm assets in Canada was 1.54 per cent – $8,193 billion on $531 billion assets. Return on assets is a key measure of profitability. Return on assets in only three provinces – Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan — exceeded the national average, based on Statistics Canada data. Saskatchewan has the highest return on assets in the country with an average 2.73 per cent return. Falling in second place was Manitoba at 2.66 per cent, while Ontario with a 2.1 per cent return was third. Neighbouring Alberta farmers had a 1.28 per cent return on assets. Quebec farmers averaged .84 per cent return, less than Newfoundland and Labrador at 1.89 per cent. The potato province, P.E.I., averaged 1.42 per cent return on assets, while New Brunswick averaged .34 per cent. Nova Scotia farmers lost about one per cent on assets, while British Columbia farmers had less than one-hundredth of one per cent return.



If farmers earned just a bit more than Government of Canada bonds, how do they survive? The answer lies in a charge on income called depreciation. Depreciation is a tax-free allowance on income of all businesses for wear and tear on buildings and machinery. In 2017 Canadian farmers had $7.58 billion in depreciation, almost doubling the cash they had after expenses. In Saskatchewan, that cash from depreciation amounted

to $1.78 billion, a substantial increase in cash to live on and grow the operation. Alberta farmers led in depreciation at $1.87 billion while Quebec was third at $1.63 billion. Debt levels plays an important role in farm finances. The more debt the more interest expenses. Canadian farmers had $98.2 billion debt in 2017 — equivalent to 18.5 per cent of assets: a reasonable level for an industry where commodity price volatility causes large income fluctuations. By comparison, acceptable debt levels in real estate run up to 75 per cent of assets. Alberta farmers with $22.1 billion debt have the lowest debt as a percentage of assts at 14.6 per cent. Second lowest debt to assets level is Saskatchewan at 15.2 per cent for $14.96 billion debt. Ranked with third lowest debt level is B.C. at 16.7 per cent while Quebec is fourth at 18.7 per cent, or $25.3 billion Highest debt levels are Newfoundland and Labrador at 56 per cent of assets; Nova Scotia at 40 per cent; New Brunswick, 35 per cent; P.E.I., 33.5 per cent; and Ontario at 31 per cent.

Favourite five stocks’ return beats market benchmarks

Last year was a year most investors in the stock market just want to forget. The benchmark Toronto Stock Exchange Composite index lost 12.1 per cent in value during the year. The broadbased U.S. Standard and Poors Index lost 9.7 per cent while the elite Dow index lost six per cent. The five favourite Bizworld stocks eked out an average nine-tenths of one per cent gain — nothing to write home about but certainly better than the bellwether indexes. In September these five had an average gain of around four per cent, losing it to the daily selling inspired by fear of U.S. President Trump’s trade war tweets and bully tactics. In the end, strong dividends paid by four of the five created a tiny gain. Dividends added 3.3 per cent to the returns. proving the wisdom of buying dividend paying stocks. Atlantic Gold had the best price gain — 18.7 per cent to $1.65, as its Nova Scotia open pit gold mine went into full production. Superior Plus, owner of industrial chemical plants and consolidator of North American propane retailers and wholesalers, turned in the worst loss — 20.4 per cent to

$9.71. The Bank of Montreal lost 4.6 per cent to $89.191 on stock trade churning, while utility Fortis lost 1.8 per cent in price to $45.51. Pembina Pipeline lost 5.8 per cent to $40.51. Bizworlds’s five favourite stocks for 2019 are Equinox Gold, Pembina Pipeline, Power Financial, Emera Inc., and Canadian Western Bank. Equinox, trading at $1.02, operates a high cost heap, leach gold mine in California with a new lower cost Brazilian gold mine starting production before spring. Power Financial, entering the year at $25.83, yields 6.7 per cent. The Quebec-based financial conglomerate with ownership stakes in Great West Life, Investors Group and Europe’s Pargesa industrial complex, is a steady snailpaced performer, greatly under-valued by this volatile market. Nova Scotia-based Emera, $43.71, a power generation utility with plants in Canada, Northeastern U.S., the Caribbean and now digesting substantial acquisitions in Arizona and Florida, is also under-valued by this market. The dividend yields 5.4 per cent.

Pembina Pipeline of Alberta has just acquired U.S, pipeline assets, including an early stage $10 billion liquid natural gas project in Oregon. Pembina trades at $40.51, with the dividend yielding 5.6 per cent. Canadian Western Bank, trading at $26.04, yields just over four per cent. Linked to the doomsday oil patch scenario, this bank’s price has suffered, yet it has few oil-related loans. Bank executives are part way through a plan to expand Ontario loans. The average yield of the four dividend-paying stocks is just over five per cent offering a worthwhile return while waiting for turbulent stock markets to settle down. The gold stock, Equinox, has potential for nice gains from the new mine and offers price upside if the market goes to pot and gold prices soar like eagles. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security. Bizworld does not recommend investments. Ron Walter can be reached at

Metal artist Bill Keen makes one-of-a-kind sculptures Sasha-Gay Lobban

Over 40 years, metal sculpture artist Bill Keen has been creating one-of-a-kind, hand crafted sculptures that have not only captured the attention of locals and people across the province but has also garnered national attention. His work cannot be duplicated as these uniquely, hand-sculpted pieces are made from the ground up, using steel as the main medium, “welded, forged and bent into original designs” with intricate details. Bill Keen started sculpture in Yorkton where he lived for two years. He and his family subsequently moved to Moose Jaw where Bill fell more in love with metal art. Starting out as an industrial arts teacher at A.E. Peacock Collegiate, he lit up with excitement while creating things handson and teaching students to do the same. “I’ve been sculpting for 47 years. I taught the industrial arts at Peacock, which was wonderful. It was a broad range of different areas and I loved it because it was creating things. The students loved it too because it was hands-on things that they could do.” Keen’s love for metal arts blossomed even more and that’s when he entered his first metal artist national competition in which he was among some of the best metal artists in Canada. His award-winning streak began immediately as his work garnered

Bill created a huge memorial tree, every detail perfectly sculpted for SGEU (Saskatchewan Government and General Employees’ Union) workers who lost their lives on the job. The sculpture was created and launched last year (2017) and is now placed at the SGEU building in Regina. Bill says it was an “honor to create this memorial tree for the hardworking men and women who lost their lives on the job. The names that are on the tree will never be forgotten.” national attention. “Back then, I was kind of experimenting and one day I saw an ad for a national competition for metal artists. The theme for that competition was ‘energy.’ I thought, ‘well I’ll try to make something

for this competition’ and I did that and won second place.” It was after this competition, his passion continued to grow for metal sculptures. After that, Keen went on to create more works of metal art which he says continues to be very rewarding and fulfilling to this day. “After that competition I realized that creating metal art gave me a lot of pleasure, so I decided to continue doing so and that’s what I did. I’ve been doing it ever since and it’s been 47 years now! I’ve done many shows to showcase some of my pieces.” He continued, “Every piece is unique. It is all sculpted from scratch and no piece of my art can be duplicated because nothing is cut out. I’ve always created these pieces from basically material. My work is sculpture — started from a few materials and I make it into a sculpture. That’s the difference between my work and that of some other artists. The work I do is one of a kind because it is impossible to duplicate based on the process that goes into every piece.” Keen says what makes his work even

more fulfilling is having his wife Laurette of 50 years working with him in creating his sculptures. She is the co-designer on all the pieces. “About 25 years ago, Laurette started working with me, which was really good because she would be my critic, and this made my work better. She worked closely with me. She also does the final touch to pieces like the painting. She has a great eye for color. We work extremely well together and now she has become an intricate part of our work. Everything I do now, she’s heavily involved.” Laurette says painting brings the sculptures to life which makes the pieces stand out more. “He used to do a variety of work with different metals but for the last 15 or 20 years, he’s mostly using steel. He has also been sculpting a lot more trees because trees are more interesting, and people gravitate to them. Every sculpture is then hand painted which is what I do that would make the sculpture look more realistic, so that’s where I come in,” Laurette said. “Her work compliments mine so much because she brings it to life,” said a proud Bill. “She breathes a lot of life into it.” Keen also spoke about his inspiration behind some of his most notable pieces. “I’m very inspired by the environment. Everything in nature inspires me… Trees help us in our environment in many ways and because of this, people tend to relate a lot to them.” The sculptures are wall hangings or three-dimensional forms and vary from realistic to very abstract. He said metal sculpting is a great art to learn because it is very fulfilling. “I would encourage others to get into this kind of artistry because psychologically, it is so rewarding. It is invigorating to create something, and you are very pleased with it and others love it too. That makes it even more rewarding. I love my work… it’s a deep passion for me. I still enjoy doing metal sculptures” To get in touch with the Keens, you can call 306-692-4912 to make an appointment. Learn more at

I recently read a University of California San Francisco (UCSF) article regarding research on “super-agers� (those living healthily into their 80s and beyond). Professors at UCSF wanted to know why some octogenarians flourish in their golden years while others struggle with multiple disease states. While interviewing numerous “super-agers,� one neurologist noted one common denominator — those who were healthy and thriving into their older years appeared to all have a positive outlook on life and were happy with their present circumstance. The big chicken/egg question is, does being healthy make them happy, or are favourable personality traits responsible for their impressive health? Most of us know of people who have treated them-

Resolve to Exercise Your Thoughts by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor This is the time of the year when the local fitness centres are seeing their annual surge in volume. The “resolution-ists� have made their way back to the gym in hopes of turning their lives around with improved health. With goals such as weight loss, improved energy, flexibility or strength, thousands will be crowding spin classes, yoga sessions and boot camps, while countless others will be signing up to receive their monthly supply of dietary supplements and meal-replacement shakes. While I am not “pooh-poohing� any of these strat-

selves poorly their whole lives with liquor, tobacco and zero exercise, yet lived to a ripe old age. There are others out there that lived textbook lives yet did not live past their sixth decade. There must be more to the secret of longevity than eating right and exercising right. Maybe the most important “right� is what goes on between the ears. Flooding our minds with positive thoughts and practicing healthy stress management may be the secrets to a long and healthful life. There are many stressful circumstances and situations we face in our daily lives, most of which we have no control over. Life coaches tell us we have full control over our thoughts surrounding these events. Is it possible that training our brains may be more important than training our bodies? Life coaching is gaining space in the wellness world and it is my opinion research in healthy aging will validate the concept that how we think may be more important for our health than attending that ab-blasting, butt-crunching, 5 a.m. boot camp.

Ackerman rink earns spot in junior nationals Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

An impressive month of curling has landed Skylar Ackerman and her Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre rink a berth in the New Holland Canadian Juniors national championship. Ackerman and her rink of third Madison Johnson, second Chantel Hoag and lead Samantha McLaren lost 5-3 to Regina’s Rachel Erickson in the final of the CurlSask junior women’s provincial championship in Saskatoon, and normally that would have been the end of their season playing at that level. But the Yukon Territory was unable to field a team this year, and since nationals are in Prince Albert, a second berth was given to Saskatchewan for the provincial finalist, as well as the champion. So, after Ackerman took a 7-4 win over Weyburn’s Emily Haupstein in the championship round semifinal, they had accomplished a pretty incredible goal. “It’s a little too bad we couldn’t pull off the final win and get that green jacket again, but to still go to nationals is going to be a great experience and we’re going to be super excited,” Ackerman said. The ‘green jacket’ comment refers to something that had already happened once a month earlier, as the local rink won the Canada Games provincial championship to pick up their first set of green

Skylar Ackerman, Madison Johnson, Chantel Hoag, Samantha McLaren and coach Patrick Ackerman with their provincial runner-up plaques. jackets of the year. That win certainly helped when it came to CurlSask provincials, since good curling is good curling and can lead to great results no matter the opponent. “We knew going into the competition that we’d have to play well and we set our goals to make it to the final because we knew that two teams would come out,” Ackerman said. “When we made it there we were pretty excited because we knew we were going to nationals, and it’s a U-21 tournament and we’re still all

17-and-under, so it’s a great accomplishment for us and we’re all really excited.” Ackerman once again had to play a heck of a lot of games to get the job done – the final marked their third game in a day and fourth since the previous evening. “Yeah, but the easy way is no fun,” Ackerman laughed. “That final game we were pretty tired, but we gave it all we got and I’m really proud of all the girls for digging in and curling really well.” Ackerman finished the round robin tied for first place in her round robin pool

with a 4-1 record, but the luck of the draw saw to it she’d have to play an extra game in the championship round. She defeated Saskatoon’s Ashley Thevenot 6-1 in that contest and followed with an 8-7 extra end win over Saskatoon’s Madison Kleiter in the quarter-final to set up the all-important national qualifying game with Haupstein. Part of all that success undoubtedly came from the pre-tournament preparation that in addition to curling practice included working with a mental coach and nutritionist, a plan of attack the team and their coaches will look to keep on track heading into nationals. “It’s a huge help, it gives us a big edge on other teams and it helps us with having extra focus and extra energy when we’re going into games,” Ackerman said. It all sets the stage for their first crack at the Canadian Juniors, into which they’ll once again carry lofty aspirations. “Our goal is to make it to the championship round, we have to place top four in our pool and there’s seven in our pool, so we’re just going to try and finish in the top four and make it to the championship round and anything can happen from there,” Ackerman said. The New Holland Canadian Juniors are in Prince Albert from Jan. 19 to 27.

Cyclones win senior boys Invitational Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Central Cyclones picked up a championship during their home tournament this past weekend – and earned a measure of revenge in the process. The Cyclones built a 26-6 lead in the first quarter and never looked back against the Saskatoon Walter Murray Marauders during the gold medal game of the 58th annual Invitational Basketball Tournament at Peacock on Saturday afternoon, rolling to a 92-58 win. The victory was especially sweet since the Cyclones – then an injured and banged-up bunch coming off the close of football season – had lost to Walter Murray in the consolation final of the season-opening Bowlt tournament in Saskatoon. “They’re a really good team, they competed with us the entire time and it’s a redemption from the last tournament we were at with them,” said Cyclones senior Hardill Khubber, who led all scorers with 22 points. “That pushed us a lot, our full offence was good and our defence played great right from the beginning. They have big people inside and we just kept with them, thanks to the coaches, they had us really prepared for this one.” The Cyclones offensive balance was once again on display in the final, as five players hit double digits. In addition to Khubber’s showing, Jaxson Brownell picked up 16 points, Kyle Boughen and Fharis Ebet 12 each and Max Coulson 10. That kind of universal team performance has been one of the main keys for Central at the start of the season, something Khubber expects will remain the same. “We have a good group of seniors and we’ve lost two provincial championships in a row, so this year we’re really pushing for it and giving it all we have,” he said. “It’s been going good for us so far.” Central opened the tournament with a 93-58 win over North Battleford John Paul II before downing the Estevan Elecs 87-51. That sent them into the first place pool where they took an 89-63 win over the Weyburn

The Vanier Vikings posted a 1-1 record in the round robin, losing a heartbreaker 70-69 to Weyburn in their opening game before rebounding with a 57-46 win over North Battleford Comprehensive. That was enough to put them in the second-place pool, where they fell in the semifinal 81-77 to John Paul II. The Peacock Toilers went 1-2 in their four-team round robin pool, defeating the Melfort Comets 70-47 to go along with a 74-44 loss to Walter Murray and 82-73 defeat at the hands of the Yorkton Raiders. That sent the Toilers into the third-place pool final, where they fell 78-74 to Estevan.

Bit of the good, bit of the bad for Warriors; Tribe stun Raiders in Prince Albert, fall at home to Winterhawks Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors endured a bit of the extremely good and a bit of the very bad in only 24 hours of Western Hockey League action. First, there was their 4-2 win over the Canadian Hockey League-top ranked Prince Albert Raiders in Prince Albert on Friday night. The Tribe then returned home and gave up four goals in the first period on their way to a 6-0 loss to the Portland Winterhawks on Saturday. As a result, the Warriors now hold a 219-5-1 record, good enough for fifth in the Eastern Conference, a point back of Edmonton and two back of Lethbridge with at least three games in hand on every team ahead of them in the standings. One huge beneficiary of the win for Portland was Winterhawks forward Reece Newkirk. The 17-year-old Moose Jaw minor hockey product scored the opening goal of the game 3:47 into the first and touched off a wild celebration for a huge contingent of fans who filled a section of Mosaic Place to cheer him on. “It was nice,” Newkirk said of the support. “I came out for warm-ups and all the guys were ‘holy, you have a lot of guys up there’. So it’s good to have them here, showing support. I couldn’t be here without them.” Newkirk finished the game with a goal and an assist, giving him 18 goals and 43 points in 39 games. He was also named the contest’s first star. “It was great. Obviously, I’ve been waiting for this game for a long time, I’ve been waiting for it since I got (to Portland),” Newkirk said. “Then to score in front of my friends and family is the best feeling of my life... They were coming off a big win against Prince Albert, so we knew they were hot and we had to come

Salmond made 38 saves for the win; the Warriors fired 27 at Ian Scott. Ozzy Weisblatt and Brayden Pachal scored for Prince Albert, with the two teams tied 1-1 through the first and 2-2 through two. The Warriors return to action Jan. 9 against the Calgary Hitmen (7 p.m., Mosaic Place).

Warriors goaltender Brodan Salmond turns aside Portland’s Haydn Delorme in close. out playing well. We did that and we’re happy with the outcome.” Jake Gricius, Lane Gilliss, Clay Hanus, Seth Jarvis and Joachim Blichfeld all scored for Portland. Shane Farkas made 23 saves for the shut-out win. Adam Evanoff stopped seven shots in the first period for the Warriors before giving way to Brodan Salmond, who made 25 stops the rest of the way. Warriors assistant coach Mark O’Leary wasn’t putting too much stock into the loss, preferring to chalk it up to one of ‘those’ games. “The good thing is it isn’t against a division rival or even a team from the conference, so we can learn from the game tape a little bit but it’s not exactly a pre-sked game for down the road,” he said. “There are going to be nights like this and we just have to shake it off.” One night earlier in Prince Albert, things were decidedly different.

Brook disappointed, but appreciated World Juniors experience Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

To put it simply, Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Josh Brook wanted no part of this past weekend’s set of Western Hockey League games. He really wanted to be in Vancouver, playing for a gold medal in the World Junior Hockey championship with Team Canada. But a stunning 2-1 overtime loss to eventual champion Finland in the quarter-final meant he was once again available for ‘domestic’ hockey duty. Still, the whole experience of having a chance to play in that environment – from the Boxing Day romp over Denmark to the New Year’s Eve war with Russia – was one he would never forget. “It was an awesome experience, a dream come true to play in the tournament for Canada,” he said. “It was all I would have thought but I just wish I could have won.” Like every event of that calibre, there was plenty to take away from the showing even without a medal. “I think I learned a lot from it, it was awesome hockey – so fast – and we didn’t get the end I wanted, but the experience was great for me personally,” Brook said.

Brayden Tracey scored on the power play 7:31 into the third period and that stood as the game winning goal in their huge win over the Raiders in P.A. Tristin Langan finished the game with a hat trick, including an empty net goal. Jett Woo and Josh Brook – recently returned from the World Junior championship -- had two assists each.

Prairie Hockey Academy wins Prairie Classic Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Prairie Hockey Academy continues to see incredible results from game to game, weekend to weekend. This past weekend was no exception as they hosted their first-ever Elite 15’s tournament and, true to form, saw the kind of results they could only dream about – an undefeated record through the round robin followed by a shootout win to claim the gold medal in the championship final at Barkman Arena in Caronport. It was the first set of games for newly minted head coach Lorne Molleken and a showing that team captain Evan Callaghan felt was earned, given their recent run of success. “It’s really exciting, I think the boys battled pretty hard the whole weekend and we deserved it,” Callaghan said shortly after Atley Calvert’s shootout goal and Nathan Airey’s final save gave PHA a 3-2 win over the St. Albert Flyers, one of the top teams in the Alberta Midget AAA league. “We just have to stay composed, though, for the rest of the season,” he added. “We have a long way to go but I think this is a good confidence booster for us and we’re really happy with it.” The championship final was a back-and-forth battle from start to finish, with St. Albert taking a 1-0 lead out of the first period. The lead held until late in the

Players with the Prairie Hockey Academy gather for a team photo after their Prairie Classic tourney win.

second Noah Barlage and Max Wanner scored power play goals 10 seconds apart for a 2-1 edge. The Flyers would get that one back before the period was out, though, sending things into the third all tied up. “We were able to push back and get a couple of goals really quick and that really changed momentum for us in the game and turned the game in our favour,” Callaghan said. “They got one more on us, but we were able to shut them down the rest of the game and get a huge win for our team.” The victory capped off a stellar run for the Cougars, as they opened the tournament with a 7-1 win over the SEAC Tigers out of Medicine Hat. Calvert and Kirk Mullen had two goals each in the game, to go along with single markers from Barlage, Liam McInnis and Chris Otterson. Chase Coward was the winning goaltender. Things were far closer in their round robin matchup with the Flyers, which went to an 18-player shootout that saw Airey make all nine of his saves and McInnis score the eventual winning goal. Calvert had two more goals in regulation; Caelan Fitzpatrick had their other marker. PHA closed out the round robin with a 3-0 win over the Lethbridge Headwater Hurricanes, with Coward picking up the shutout. Otterson scorede twice, Tyson


Kistner had their other goal. For his part, Molleken was impressed with what he saw from his new team – even if he didn’t have a lot of time to work with the squad. “The biggest thing is what they had in place was working and we just wanted to continue to build on that,” Molleken said. “Obviously, there will be some tweaks from there, but the staff that’s worked with this team has done a tremendous job and they have a tremendous group of young men that have tremendous character.”

The celebration was on after Nathan Airey made the final save in the championship game shootout.

Average Moose Jaw home price declined during 2018 By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Faced with a slow economy, tighter mortgage rules, and higher interest rates, Moose Jaw homeowners saw diminished values last year. The Multiple Listing Service benchmark home price index showed a loss of 8.3 per cent over 2018. That average price fell 11 per cent in the last six months of the year. “Much of the gains homeowners have seen in the Moose Jaw area over the past 10 years have been eaten into over the past 12 to 24 months,” said Rob Reynar, Association of Regina Realtors manager. “An overall lessening of demand combined with the

negative effects of two rounds of federal mortgage rule changes in 2018 have created conditions for price drops. With sales levels below the five-year average for the market, this will be something to watch as we head into 2019.” The Regina housing market was little better. The association report for the Queen City showed a 5.2 per cent decline in the MLS benchmark home price index to $267,400, a value loss of nearly $25,000. In Regina, an eight per cent drop in the number of sales left sales volume below the pre-recession level of 2007 for the first time.

Better Water Solutions for your entire home.

Moose Jaw MLS realtors sold 417 homes worth $98.6 million during the year for an average $236,438 price. The number of real estate sales in all categories fell 8.4 per cent to 564. Listings were down to 961 from 994 in 2017. Year-end inventory of 1,705 listings was up some from 1,744 in 2017. Average single-family home price fell $18,300 to $201,400 during the year while the average two-storey price fell $12,700 to $202,700. Ron Walter can be reached at

SaskTel contributes to community through three charity wings Matthew Gourlie

It has been a banner year for SaskTel’s three charity wings. Between the SaskTel Pioneers, SaskTel TelCare and SaskTel EnviroCare, the groups donated more than $10,000 to local charities and initiatives. “SaskTel has always been charitable,” said Kristian Sjoberg, president of Moose Jaw’s branch of the SaskTel Pioneers. “We do a lot of donations every year, but this year we tried to maximize our donations around the city and tried to keep everything within the city.” The SaskTel Pioneers have been around since 1947 and is part of the Telecom Pioneers of America -- a network of more than 600,000 telecom employees, representing 82 chapters, that has been around for more than 100 years. “Any phone company, anywhere in North America, all of their people within the phone company are part of the Telecom Pioneers. So it’s an interconnected charity wing within all phone companies,” said Sjoberg. “Every employee donates $5 off of every paycheque into a pool and that get distributed from our Regina headquarters. All of that money gets divvied out to the different clubs.” This year the Pioneers donated $1,000 to the Moose Jaw Food Bank and $2,000 from an education budget that went to the Moose Jaw Public Library. The Pioneers also donated $500 to the Moose Jaw Gamer’s Association’s Winter GAX Fundraiser. They also were able to donate approximately $2,000 to purchase Christmas presents for the elderly. “Our project this year was Christmas donations for the elderly in care homes -- people who don’t have family or who don’t have anyone to buy them everyday things,” explained Sjoberg who said they were able to get gifts for 55 people from a couple of different care homes. Additionally, the SaskTel Pioneers are also donating 1,500 books to the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division and the Prairie South School Division in

January to help with their literacy week celebrations.

“We do a lot of donations every year, but this year we tried to maximize our donations around the city and tried to keep everything within the city.” - Kristian Sjoberg, SaskTel Pioneers.

“We’ve also had some educational initiatives within the last year and also project initiatives from our head office,” Sjoberg said. “On top of the roughly $4,000 we get a year here, we also had $2,000 that was an education budget which we donated to the Public Library for some upgrades. “From that same education budget we bought a pallet of books which were given to the public school board and the

Holy Trinity School Board. We’re splitting them.” The Pioneers will have a sorting day to organize the books they received. The books are brand new from publishers that are sold at extreme discounts to schools. “They sell them us at about 95 per cent off. So we get this hardcover book for $2 and we get thousands of them,” Sjoberg said. “I have about 1,500 books to go through and there’s probably 30 different titles. They’re all brand new, hardcover books that we’ll donate to the school boards to hand out during literacy week in January.” The Pioneers isn’t the only charity wing for SaskTel. “The Pioneers is the main one, where we get most of our donations of money. We also have a wing within SaskTel called TelCare. On top of the $5 I give to Pioneers every month I can donate as much as I want on my paycheque to TelCare,” Sjoberg said. “If I donate $10, the company will match 50 per cent. And then each club, each city, gets the amount of money that the people in their area have donated to donate back to a registered charity.” This year TelCare donated $2,500 locally in Moose Jaw, with SaskTel’s corporate head office contributing an additional $1,250.

TelCare donated $2,500 to the Canadian Diabetes Association, $499.50 to both the Riverside Mission and Hunger in Moose Jaw and $250 to the Moose Jaw Humane Society. Internally, there is also the EnviroCare committee which focuses on environmental initiatives. This year approximately 25 people from SaskTel EnviroCare took part in their Acts of Kindness Day in the Wakamow Valley. “We were in Wakamow over the summer putting down wood chips over 200 metres of the Trans-Canada Trail to finish up some maintenance there. We helped them build a deck,” Sjoberg said. They donated $500 to Wakamow Valley Park after their bathroom was vandalized and also donated $500 to the Burrowing Owl Centre. “That is purely self-funded by bottles and cans from within SaskTel. We’re basically getting a couple hundred a month from that,” said Sjoberg of the EnviroCare committee which has been around for five years. “That’s one where I wish we could get all of the Crowns involved,” Sjoberg added. “I was on the committee for EnviroCare and I was there when I was founded, so I think it’s our dream to have all of the Crowns involved. Right now they all have their own initiatives, but it would be great for all Crowns to have their own EnviroCare teams... so we can trade ideas.” Beyond the pride SaskTel employees feel in giving back to the community, Sjoberg is proud of the example their setting. “I’ve got a little five year old and showing him how to do these things is amazing,” Sjoberg said. “Last Thanksgiving we were driving around and everything was closed and he asked why the firemen were out on Thanksgiving and I said that they had to work. He asked if we could do something nice for the firemen. My five year old asked me that. We went and bought them some donuts. It was something little, but to me it meant the world. It meant he’s actually seeing what I’m doing and trying to live his life the same way.”

Old Airplanes – The Memories Never Disappear Submitted by Richard Dowson

Dedicated to Moose Jaw’s Alfred Lincoln Seward (Feb. 1923 to January 4, 2018). After WWII Al Seward was a Flight Lieutenant with 435 Squadron RCAF flying with the Army of Occupation in Europe. In April of 1946 activity in Europe was slowing. Al his crew were assigned the task of returning Dakota aircraft KN270 to Uplands RCAF Base, Ottawa, Canada. KN270 was built in Oklahoma City by the Douglas Aircraft Company in late 1944 and designated a C-47B with serial number 43-49942. She was flown from Oklahoma City to Montreal, designated KN270 (the K meaning Canada) and then flown to Great Britain and served with the Royal Air Force. This photo shows Al and the crew preparing to take-off from She had been bought by the Canadian gov- Down Ampney airfield, England in April 1946. Al Seward is third ernment, so was re-acquired by the Royal from the left. Canadian Air Force after the war and assigned to 435 Transport Squadron. The old C-47 Dakota, KN270, went on to have a wonderful life in the RCAF — and then as a commercial aircraft in Canada and the United States, before retiring in 2001. It was slowly brought back to life, beginning in 2002, by the Commemorative Air Force, Highland Lakes Squadron, in Burnet, Texas. After restoration she began flying again. The Commemorative Air Force C-47 was named the “Bluebonnet Belle.” Burnet, Texas is the Bluebonnet capital of Texas. She was registered as N47HL. The aircraft appeared regularly at air shows. She was flown by experienced crews and air show crowds loved to hear the roar of her two mighty Pratt and Whitney radial engines. The C-47 was also configured for parachutists and used by parachute clubs. The Douglas C-47B, “Bluebonnet Belle,” old RCAF Dakota KN270 crashed at the Burnet Municipal Kate Craddock Field on July 21, 2018 during her take-off phase. The 13 on board were headed to the airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Everyone survived. Retired RCAF and Water Bomber Pilot Al Seward would have been saddened by her demise.

Provincial gov’t rakes in less casino profits from lower revenues By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Profits at Casinos Moose Jaw and Regina continued the long-term slide according to financial statements by their owner, the Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation. Profits for the three months ended September 30, 2018 fell 14.5 per cent to $11.5 million on a 4.3 per cent decrease in revenues and 3.4 per cent increase in expenses. Guest counts declined at both casinos — 5.1 per cent in Regina and 4.3 per cent in Moose Jaw — for an average five per cent drop in attendance. Slot machine revenues accounted for $1.2 million of the

$1.8 million revenue loss with gaming table revenues down $.5 million. The provincial government was paid $5.76 million — a decline of almost $1 million from last year that quarter, causing a drop in projected revenue to the province to $44.6 million from $46 million. Year-to-date, revenues of $60.1 million declined by 2.9 per cent while expenses increased by 2.9 per cent to $36.8 million. Payments to the provincial government for the first six months of the fiscal year amounted to $11.6 million — a drop of $1.6 million. With six-month profits of $11.6 million after payments to the province, the casino earned a whopping 22.8 per cent return on equity. Ron Walter can be reached at

On the Front Porch

by Wanda Smith

Write It At the turning of a new year, it is my desire to take some time to be quiet and meditate on my life and communicate with Holy Spirit for what He desires of me for the coming year. Sometimes, I am able to entice Hubby to join me in my quest for setting a vision for the year as well. A few years ago, we made a list of six things we had hoped we could accomplish that year. I wish I could find the actual list so I could share what they were because I can’t recall the exact ideas. However, they went something like this: 1. Become debt-free 2. Build a new front step 3. Buy a better vehicle 4. Put in new flooring in kitchen 5. Family camping trip At the bottom of the list, we both signed our names, agreeing that these would be some things we’d like to accomplish that year. We didn’t know how we would actually achieve the vision we had; we didn’t make the list based on our ability or time or money that was available. We simply wrote down what we wanted to see happen that year. Would you believe the end of the year, we had accomplished five out of the six things? At Easter 2018, Sis wrote out some thought-provoking phrases and put them in plastic eggs and handed the eggs around to each of the family — suggesting we each comment on our ‘egg’ phrase. Hubby’s phrase was “what are a couple things you’d like to accomplish this year?” He mentioned fixing up a couple sheds on our property. I was excited to see his vision and supported that all year, even when it didn’t look as though we had the funds to accomplish them. Looking back, our chicken coop and garden shed have had a facelift and he also built a horse shelter! I find it very inspiring when we can fix up our home and yard. It is good for the soul to see things improved and cleaned up. There is a lot to be learned on the topic of setting goals but even if you don’t take much time to learn about setting goals, there is one simple suggestion I will make that could help you achieve your goals quicker than you realize. The suggestion is this: write them down! It’s as easy as grabbing a paper and a pen and thinking outside of the limitations of time and money of what you would like to achieve this year. Sign it and date it. Now put it in front of you... tape it to your bathroom mirror or put it on your nightstand — somewhere you will see it every day. This is a Biblical principle. Habakkuk 2:2,3 suggests: “... Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming — it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time.” As you work on your vision list, don’t be afraid to add intangible desires such as building better relationships, forgiving others, or helping others. To make this project even more fun, you may wish to develop a vision board, cutting out pictures and words that represent what you’re believing for. Hang it where you and your family will frequently see it. Let faith and hope arise to see your vision come to pass!

A series of protests that started in France over escalating fuel taxes and drew tens of thousands of people to the streets hit Moose Jaw recently, only in much more muted form. Around a dozen ‘yellow vest’ protesters and counter-protesters picketed in front of city hall throughout the late morning and early afternoon on Dec. 29, drawing honks from passing motorists and passing on respective messages – be it stopping Bill C-69 or rejecting racism, depending upon their respective point of view.

Mugger attacks senior who was a kickboxing champ, loses TKO WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A Florida mugger picked the wrong senior citizen to attack. The Palm Beach Post reports 68-year-old Steve Shepherd was limping to his car last week, a pulled muscle impairing his stride, when a mugger hit him in the head with a bottle and demanded his cellphone. Bad choice. Shepherd is a five-time world kickboxing champ. Though retired 18 years, he’s been training to become the oldest professional fighter. He has a March bout scheduled.

Shepherd threw a right cross to the attacker’s head, and then smashed a hook to his ribs, crumpling him. Bystanders interceded and the man escaped. Shepherd suffered a ruptured eardrum, a cut and bruise. The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office says security video shows the attacker is about 20 and had prowled the area for hours, seeking a victim.

Snacks on wheels: PepsiCo tests self driving robot delivery By Joseph Pisani - THE ASSOCIATED PRESS self-driving vehicles to deliver food. Last month, supermarket operator Kroger announced it would start delivering groceries in a driverless vehicle from a store in Scottsdale, Arizona. The robots used at the University of the Pacific will move at speeds of up to 6 miles per hour, according to Robby Technologies, which makes the robots. Three workers on the campus will be refilling the robots with food and drinks and replacing the batteries with recharged ones

when they go dead. At first three robots will be used, but then grow to a fleet of five over time. The robots, which weigh 80 pounds and are less than 3 feet tall, drive on their own and stop when someone is in front of it, Robby says. PepsiCo says it’s testing this way to deliver its snacks because more of its customers want a convenient way to buy them on their phones.

NEW YORK — Forget vending machines, PepsiCo is testing a way to bring snacks directly to college students.
