Dance for Hunger returns to dazzle again

The Dance for Hunger showcase has been collecting for the Moose Jaw Food Bank for over 10 years, and they aren’t stopping this year. By Larissa Kurz

This year’s Dance for Hunger showcase from Dance Images by BJ is once again offering a great opportunity for dancers to demonstrate their talent and give back to their community in one fell swoop. On Mar. 24, at 6:30pm at Peacock Auditorium, the showcase will be highlighting over 100 dancers from the studio, showing off their skills and achievements before heading into their busy competition season, with a generous atmosphere; admission at the door will be $5 and patrons are asked to bring a non-perishable food item as a donation to the Moose Jaw Food Bank. Last year saw a packed auditorium, with the event raising almost 3,000 pounds of food, which is the largest donation in the showcase’s history. This year Shauna Bzdel, assistant director of the studio, hopes the show will be bigger and better, with the support of the community. “I think that this is just a really important event, our studio is very community-minded, and we always like to find a way of being able to give back to the community,” said Bzdel. “It’s great for our kids too, because they get the opportunity to perform on stage, and they also end up learning really important qualities like giving back to the community and just doing something that

they love.” “And hopefully, by us being able to raise as much food as we can for them, it allows people that are needing to use the Food Bank to know that there are people out there that really care about them too,” Bzdel added. Featuring an acro-dance performance involving over 100 dancers from ages 5-18, the studio promises an exciting performance that is sure to be entertaining. All the performers have been working very hard to prepare and Bzdel promises a good show. “I think that it will be a really exciting evening and anybody that comes out to watch will definitely not be disappointed with the talent, and at the end of the evening, it’ll be great to give a nice big food donation to the Food Bank as well,” said Bzdel. The studio will be collecting donations from its dancers through the weekend, and of course donations the night of the showcase, but anyone wanting to contribute a donation but can’t make it to the Mar. 24 show are welcome to bring them down to the studio. “If they’d like to [donate], they can bring them into the studio, Dance Images by BJ — it’s 177 Iroquois St W — and we would definitely accept donations if they weren’t able to come to the show,” said Bzdel.

Agriculture is a most significant sector of the provincial economy and for the economic balance in the Moose Jaw area. This month agriculture is at the forefront for a number of reasons. Last week was Agriculture Safety Week in Saskatchewan, expressing the importance of safety as we begin to prepare for the busy season ahead. The much-appreciated warmer weather makes the growing season seem much closer. This is calving season for many in the cattle industry while organizing and planning for seeding will soon be underway. Agriculture is also brought to the forefront as this is Agriculture Literacy Month and Rural Women’s Month in Saskatchewan. At one time, many had family connections to farming. This is less and less the case, which increases the importance of communicating where our food comes from, and the process that gets it to the grocery store. Agriculture Literacy Month addresses this by bringing agriculture to life in classrooms around the province. Farmers, ranchers and members of the agriculture industry work to help students learn about, connect to and understand the industry. Agriculture in the Classroom aims to connect kids to agriculture, by delivering agriculture education opportunities to Saskatchewan schools. This month, Agriculture in the Classroom will work with schools to explore the theme of “Food Waste”. Students will learn about the food production process and how everyone plays a

role in reducing the problem of food waste. The province has recognized women in the agriculture industry for many years by annually proclaiming March as Rural Women’s Month. According to the 2016 Canadian Agriculture Census, one in four farm operators in Saskatchewan is a woman. The number of women graduating from the College of Agriculture to take up related careers is increasing. Rural Women’s Month is a time to recognize the impact rural women make on agriculture and our economy as a whole. Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison was on a trade mission in Southeast Asia last week to showcase Saskatchewan’s agri-food strengths. He promoted Saskatchewan’s leadership in agricultural biotechnology and life sciences, and profiled the province’s strong ties through immigration with the Philippines, encouraging companies based in Singapore and the Philippines to invest in Saskatchewan. Planning for safety is essential in planning for the growing season. It was timely that last week was proclaimed Agricultural Safety Week. It was an important reminder to take care of ourselves by getting adequate rest, taking breaks and being aware of dangerous areas where we work. Safety practises may be unintentionally overlooked when hurrying in those peak times that have such an impact on making a living. March is a good time to plan ahead to include safety practises throughout the season and to make sure equipment is in safe condition. Please visit saskatchewan.ca/farmsafety for valuable information about farm safety and for access to the Farm Safety Guide. It will be a few weeks yet, but I look forward to seeing agriculture equipment working in the fields on my drive to Regina. There is a sense of anticipation and optimism as the seed goes into to ground. I pray for a safe and successful season for all involved in our valuable agriculture industry.

By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Two northern Saskatchewan ore deposits could turn into mining districts Most of the vast Canadian Shield that blankets the country from the Maritimes, Quebec, Ontario to Saskatchewan and the northern territories remains unexplored for mineral wealth. Mineral wealth has been tapped mainly in regions close to denser populations. The northern third of Saskatchewan, covered by Canadian Shield rocks, is no exception. Aside from uranium miming in the 1950s around Uranium City, the high-grade Athabasca Basin uranium mines and some gold near La Ronge, mining in the north has been a relatively small sector. That scenario could be changing with two companies developing copper and zinc orebodies. Both companies are drilling in the same types of rocks that have been found in northern Manitoba and developed into clusters of mines near Flin Flon and Snow Lake. The most advanced of the two, Foran Mining, has outlined deposits at McIlvena Bay, three hours drive by connecting highway from Flin Flon and a critical smelter plant. Since 1988, Foran’s drilling near Hanson Lake has outlined a significant resource of copper and zinc with minor values of lead, gold and silver.

Resources – 13.9 million tonnes indicated 13.95 percent zinc,1.96 percent copper, and 11.3 million tonnes 13.52 percent zinc and 2.01 per cent copper – need extensive drilling to upgrade to proven and probable resources. A 2014 preliminary economic assessment, based on slightly higher copper and zinc prices, determined the mine would produce 58.9 million pounds of zinc and 37.6 million pounds of copper annually. Silver and gold content sale to a royalty trust could offset some of the equity needed for the $250 million underground mine. Equity help might come from global miner Glencore. Glencore agreed to finance development from the preliminary economic assessment to feasibility study for the right to buy all production. Having an assured market will ease the financing process. That deal may seem odd but global analysts predict a supply deficit in copper and zinc in 2020 getting worse right through to 2030. This year, Foran plans on drilling to upgrade resources with a feasibility study updating costs later this year. A production decision is expected in 2020, with production in about two years. The other company, Murchison Minerals, has out-

lined 2.9 million tonnes indicated 9.98 percent zinc and 7.6 million tonnes 6.29 percent zinc at Brabant Lake, two hours northeast of La Ronge near Highway 102. Minor amounts of nickel, copper and cobalt exist as well. The company has tripled leased acreage to 70,000 acres for future drilling with plans to develop a deposit with between 10 million tonnes and 15 million tonnes of viable ore. Foran shares, recently trading around 30 cents, and Murchison, around 8.5 cents, could turn into 10-baggers for patient speculators over the years ahead. Meanwhile risk of extracting the metal, and all other mining exploration risks from commodity prices to financing and mine construction make these shares risky.

ble Now! City hosting first Vital Community Conversation on Mar. 21 Matthew Gourlie

The first of a series of community conversations in Moose Jaw and across Southern Saskatchewan will be held next week. The City of Moose Jaw will host one of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation’s 50 Vital Community Conversations on Thursday, Mar. 21. The conversation is designed to engage citizens of Moose Jaw in what matters – 150 most toHomes their community regarding Parks and Recreation. home or “There have already been some conversations within City Hall, with the Parks and Recreation Department, about ired. wanting to plan for the future.

really timely.” The City of Moose Jaw’s Vital Community Conversation will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the meeting room at the Kinsmen Sportsplex. Derek Blais started as the City’s new director of Parks and Recreation on Jan. 21. With Blais settling into his new role, Hemingway said that having a strategic plan for the Parks and Recreation Department has been identified as a priority. “This event should give us a great starting point,” he said. The City’s community conversation is one of a few that will take place in the area in the coming weeks. The South Central Regional Immigration Partnership (SCRIP) and the YMCA of Moose Jaw will also host their own community conversations in Moose Jaw though dates and times for those meetings have yet to be set. There will also be community conversations held in Assiniboia, Gravelbourg and Mossbank before the end of April.

The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation provided microgrants of $300 to 19 communities to host the 50 Vital Community Conversations in honour of the organization’s 50th anniversary. “It is important to have these conversations so that SSCF can learn directly from the communities that we serve,” said Donna Ziegler, executive director of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation. “We plan to review the information and hopefully use it to first understand the community and secondly to help us take a positive collaborative approach to solutions in the future. Each community will provide a final report outlining their conversation from the general questions that were asked. All of the input from the Vital Community Conversations will then be professionally reviewed by a research team and consolidated into a report of findings to be released in October 2019. What we learn will guide our actions to meet the needs that matter most and

will focus our resources for the greatest impact.” After the conversations, the SSCF is hoping to hear from a diverse set of communities and groups to help guide their work in Southern Saskatchewan. “We hope that the legacy of this program will be to start off the next 50 years of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation serving our entire community in the most responsive, meaningful, and engaged way based on everything that we have learnt,” Ziegler said. The SSCF’s goal was to have 50 community conversations take place, but when they received 60 applications, they decided to give microgrants to each applicant. “SSCF was glad to see such an interest in this program, and the more conversations that take place the more nuanced the report that we produce will be,” Ziegler said.

Every week when I put together the content for the paper, I am overwhelmed by what goes on in this community, the level of excellence in all aspects of the sporting arena and the general quality of life for all individuals, seniors, families with children of all ages and the artistic crowd. Let’s start off with ‘dance’ in Moose Jaw and the Dance for Hunger fundraiser for the Food Bank that is returning Joan Ritchie on March 24th. These young EDITOR dancers from Dance Images by BJ, highlighting over 100 dancers from the studio, put their heart and soul into making this event a successful annual fundraiser for the less fortunate at A.E. Peacock. Cudos to the City of Moose Jaw for the opportunity for the community to engage in conversation about what matters most to their community regarding Parks and Recreations. The new City’s Parks and Rec director has identified a need for a strategic plan as a priority…and that is the beginning of good things to come. Without a plan, efforts are futile. This opportunity to share your thoughts will be held on Thursday evening March 21st, 6:30pm at the Kinsmen Sportsplex. Over the school year, the school divisions across our region are genuinely investing in children’s lives with opportunities to present insights into numerous careers to students at different schools. These informative sessions have the potential of sparking a lifelong interest in children into a career that they may not have otherwise entertained. Children are the focus in many aspects. Upcoming is a workshop aimed to building confident children by outlining strategies to support youth from becoming the victims of bullying. See page 8 in this edition for full details to this event taking place March 30th at Temple Gardens. Walks, trots and runs of all kind help to spread awareness and fundraise for many charitable organizations. The Transplant Trot will be taking place in May but the most significant contribution that anyone could make is to become an organ donor by putting the donor sticker on your health card and also relaying your wishes to your family so that they can be aware and execute your wishes in case of loss of life. There’s no lack of things to entertain and enlighten in Moose Jaw. Check out the “New Age Warriors exhibit at the MJMAG until May 5th, a fashion exhibit that “isn’t rooted in colonial ills but rooted in pride and honour and reclamation and power” for this Indigenous artist. Moose Jaw will be bustling this summer with an influx of visitors to attend the Saskatchewan Airshow featuring our beloved Snowbirds. Get your tickets early for 40% off until April 1st. More details on page A20 of this edition. Now that spring is springing forth, gardening is top of mind! Yara Gardens plots are NOW available. To reserve a plot, all fees must be paid on or before March 28th. You can find more information by calling the Hunger in Moose Jaw office @306.692.1916. I cannot finish without mentioning this year’s Warriors tribe that continue to work hard to strive for the win; they deserve our support. School sports teams continue to exemplify proficiency in winning titles throughout the province and beyond in numerous sports…basketball, wrestling, speed skating, and on and on. Way to go Moose Jaw! I continue to believe that the people that live here are Moose Jaw’s biggest asset!

Prairie Freedom Movement launches campaign promoting separation from Canada for the West Sasha-Gay Lobban

A campaign has been launched by Prairie Freedom Movement that is geared towards raising awareness and promoting an independent Western Canada. The group gained much traction recently in mainstream media and online after billboards were erected asking, “Should Saskatchewan leave Canada?” The campaign follows a similar one launched in Alberta, by a group called Alberta Fights Back which asks the same question in their campaign. The two groups express the same views by promoting separation from Eastern Canada as a way to establish the provinces as economically and politically independent. Spokesperson for the groups, Peter Downing said since the launch of both campaigns, awareness has peaked and there is an overwhelming response from Canadians expressing similar views. “I started an organization called Alberta Fights Back in response to the third-party political action committee asking the question, “Should Alberta ditch Canada?” We had an overwhelming response to the question when we launched the campaign in Edmonton and Calgary. So, the Prairie Freedom Movement has been around since 2016 and they invited me to join their leadership team to help out with their efforts to launch a similar campaign.” The Prairie Freedom Movement’s campaign was launched last week as billboards with “should Saskatchewan leave Canada?” went up in Regina and Saskatoon. “The response so far has been overwhelming,” Downing said. “Taking a look at our provinces, we are basically dictated to by Eastern Canada, by part of the country whose economic and political interests are not the same as ours. Between Alberta and Saskatchewan, without even taking Manitoba into it right now, our oil, potash, livestock, forestry industries, our provinces’ hard-working people are getting hit with carbon taxes and their (the East) university students are getting fully subsidized while ours leave university with debt. So, the current situation is basically the East ripping off the west.” However, when the campaign was launched, some Canadians labelled the effort as ‘extreme’ declaring that this is an unrealistic call to action that they do not see happening anytime soon. In responding to those claims, Downing said, “Well for those who are calling this an extreme attempt, look at what’s happening in England right now with Brexit. Also, take a look at the United States with what’s happening with Donald Trump. People said he would never get elected and look at what happened there. So, I think people need to understand that when a large population of people are being ignored, economically exploited and politically dominated, this will happen if the situation doesn’t get remedied.” Despite some critics, Downing says there has been an increase in awareness, which is what he says the group wants to establish at this time. “We’ve been successful so far in what we’ve set out to do and that is to raise awareness. That’s why we launched these campaigns in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The overwhelming responses from small businesses, hard working people and volunteers have been very positive. So, the awareness has been very good so far. People are paying attention because they are sick of being exploited. We are getting left behind in the West and I think it’s time the government take measures to address these problems.” Downing and the Prairie Freedom Movement are not alone in their views about Western Canada feeling isolated, exploited and left behind. Recently, an Angus

Should Saskatchewan leave Canada? billboards erected in Regina and Saskatoon. (Submitted photo). Reid Institute study revealed that Canadians in the West feel isolated even though growth in the West is expected to outpace the rest of the region in the next 20 years. This is according to Chairman of the Institute, Angus Reid who did an extensive study. The study noted that, “By 2036, Canada’s four Westernmost provinces are projected to be home to more than a third of the country. Over the next 20 years growth in the West is expected to outpace every other region in the nation. But as the West grows, so too does the chorus of voices expressing frustration over the economic influence and political clout these provinces believe they should have, relative to what they do have.” The study continues to explain that, “Against the backdrop of oil and gas production in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Northern BC, pressure to find markets for these products, and a fierce debate over whether Canada’s resource economy should be promoted or suppressed, public opinion data reveals antipathy towards Ottawa and national regulators that hasn’t been seen in nearly two generations.” Reid further echoes some of the perspectives Downing highlighted. “What unites the entire West is a widely shared consensus about unfair treatment by the national government. Three-quarters of Westerners feel that the treatment of their province by Ottawa is unfair, compared to slightly less than half in Eastern Canada. And most of those who hold this point of view say this unfair treatment is only getting worse. An in-depth review of perceptions of major federal institutions reveals that negative views are chiefly aimed at the federal government, Parliament and to a lesser extent, national programming on the CBC. More positive assessments exist for the Supreme Court, The RCMP and the Armed Forces,” said Reid. “Western Canada, especially the two provinces in the middle, has become a pressure cooker of intense emotions looking for an outlet. The last time emotions were running this high a group of Albertans jumped from the then-Progressive Conservatives to establish the Reform Party in 1987. There is no better testament to what little was accomplished by that epoch in Canadian political history than the continued and even more intense feelings of inequitable treatment uncovered in this study. Reform morphed from a Western movement to a populist national conservative party but did little to address Western concerns. It forgot its Western roots in the search for national power,” Reid added. You can read the study more in-depth at http://angusreid.org/the-new-west-economy-identity-politics-andthe-future-of-canada/.

Moose Jaw celebrates Professional Engineering and Geoscience Week Sasha-Gay Lobban

“When you see an engineer or geoscientist, smile at him/ her,” said local Geoscientist Engineer Nolan Shaheen, as he made a presentation at Phoenix Academy for Engineering and Geoscience Week. To celebrate Engineering and Geoscience Week, Moose Jaw schools, along with over 100 other schools across the province, co-hosted a showing of the movie, ‘Dream Big: Engineering Our World’ with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS). This inspiring movie, narrated by Jeff Bridges, explores how engineers improve lives for people around the world by being creative and asking themselves what can happen if you dream big. The Express joined students at Phoenix Academy for the movie screening where professional Moose Jaw Geoscientist Engineer Nolan Shaheen provided some insights into the fields and explored the many dimensions to these careers. Shaheen works with the Water Security Agency here in Moose Jaw. “The Professional Engineering Association wanted to bring this video to students, showing them some aspects of engineering and hopefully stimulate some interests in the field. We want students to see how diverse it is and how interesting and important the work of the Professional Association of Engineering and Geoscientists is to the province and the country,” Shaheen said. “We also wanted students to see that the primary goal of engineers is to make the world a safer place for people.” He spoke about some of the benefits of pursuing a career

Local Geoscientist Engineer Nolan Shaheen talks to students at Phoenix Academy for Engineering and Geoscience Week. in engineering and geoscience. “Getting into engineering or geoscience gives you a lot of opportunities for personal growth. You’re getting into fields that are in demand; there is work out there for people and the jobs are relatively well paid. They are also very rewarding jobs and careers for people.” He noted that the field continues to grow, and many women are also exploring careers in engineering fields. “There are lots of students who are showing interest in these fields. Our universities still have great enrollment in engineering. However, one of the biggest thrust now is to try and get more women going into engineering. In

the past, it was a predominantly a male driven field but we’re seeing many women in the field now and we want to continue that push.” Principal at Phoenix Academy, Jeff Lynnes welcomed the insights into the field of engineering and geoscience for his students by APEGS. “I think the video was really good in that it encourages our students to ‘Dream Big’ as the movie title said. Hopefully, it will inspire our students to go into the sciences and math. The movie was indeed inspiring and great insights from the presentation here today.” Lynnes says the presentation came at the right time as Phoenix Academy is preparing for an upcoming robotics competition in Calgary. “We’re preparing for a robotics competition coming up in Calgary. We competed in the last two years and we’re going to try again this year, so we are happy to have Nolan come in and shed some light on engineering and geoscience which is perfect at this time as we’re preparing to compete.” One student, Chelsea Little said the movie opened her eyes to all the different aspects of the engineering and geoscience fields. “I thought the presentation and the movie was very interesting. I didn’t know there were so many aspects to it. It was really cool, especially since we have the robotics competition coming up. It is definitely related to what we like to do here so it was great learning about the different avenues you can take in engineering and geoscience. I might look into engineering and geoscience more now that I know there are so many aspects to it.”

Transplant Trot meant to improve organ donation awareness

In Canada, 90% of people claim to support organ donation, though only 23% have registered as donors, says the CTA, something that the Moose Jaw Transplant Trot hopes to help with. By Larissa Kurz

According to the Saskatchewan Transplant Program, you are six times more likely to need a transplant than you are to become an organ donor, a statistic that supports the Transplant Trot’s goal for celebrating life after transplant and raising awareness about organ donation. Moose Jaw will host its fifth annual Transplant Trot on May 19, an event that welcomes everyone in the community to join in a 3K walk, a 5K walk or run, or a 10K run in order to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation. Organizer Kevyn Gadd hopes that the event will draw some attention and get people interested in learning more about transplants and how organ donation works in the province. In 2014, Gadd underwent a double lung transplant in Edmonton and there learned about the Canadian Transplant Association’s Transplant Trot, which he brought to Moose Jaw. “Saskatchewan has the lowest number of organ donors in Canada,” said Gadd. “And it’s just something that now we’re obviously very close to, and who are going on this journey as well, that we just

(supplied by Kevyn Gadd.) need more awareness.” According to statistics from the Canadian Organ Replacement Registrar (CORR), there were 2,930 organ transplant procedures performed in Canada in 2017, with 1,338 donors both deceased and living involved in those procedures. To compare, there were 4,333 patients on the wait list for various organ transplants. That means

just over 67% of patients on the wait list received the organ they were waiting for in 2017. Gadd finds that the most important thing to know about organ donation is how to become a donor. In Saskatchewan, there is currently no registry for organ and tissue donation, which means that organs and tissue will not be donated without consent from the donor’s family or nextof-kin. “One of the biggest things [to know] is how to state that you want to become a donor,” said Gadd. “There is putting your sticker on your health card, but even more important than that is talking to your family and letting them know, because in the untimely situation that might come up, if your family is not aware of your wishes, they could veto it.” One organ donor can save as many as

eight lives while tissue donation can improve up to 75 lives, according to the Saskatchewan Transplant Program, and donation is only considered once every option to save a donor’s life has been weighed. The Transplant Trot this year is celebrating five years by hosting a kid’s carnival after the run, with a bouncy house, magic by Chris Edwards, face-painting and games, and various raffles — which include a Roughrider jersey signed by Gene Makowsky, a tourism package, and a Canada-Russia team series jersey from the WHL to be auctioned. Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie is expected to be making an appearance as well. The funds raised by the Trot will go to the Canadian Transplant Association to continue raising awareness about organ donation and transplants. “I do know a total for the last four years: we’ve raised approximately $30,000,” Gadd said, of the Moose Jaw event. “We average around 200 people that come out and enter it, with volunteers as well. We’re just wanting to get higher and higher every year and make it more and more successful.” Runners and volunteers interested can register at runningroom.com, which will be open until the week before the run, although walk-in registrations will be welcome the day of on May 19. More information on organ donation and organ transplants can be found at the Saskatchewan Transplant Program’s website or the Canadian Transplant Association’s website.

- Caring for Your Feet Dr. Ata Stationwala A foot orthotic is a device that is contoured to the entire foot and is used to reduce abnormal motion or posture of the foot. It can be used to treat a varied number of conditions from simple foot strains to more complicated postural imbalances. The term foot orthotic gets used very loosely (in the industry). I would argue that a true foot orthotic is one that is made specifically for you. I would call all other available devices “arch supports”. For many people, over-the-counter arch supports are adequate when needing something to provide a little more support to your feet. They can help with mild strains and fatigue. Not all arch supports are the same and not all arch supports will resolve your symptoms. For a custom orthotic to work, multiple steps have to be taken. A proper diagnosis is key. This is achieved by performing a physical exam, gait assessment and bio-

mechanical examination. Without knowing what needs to change or what needs to be corrected a proper device cannot be prescribed. A proper 3D impression of the foot needs to be obtained. Favourable methods include: casting, foam box impression and 3D laser scans. The clinician will then be able to prescribe the device determining multiple parameters including materials, style, cast corrections, additions, etc. The last step is the manufacturing of the device. If this isn’t done to the correct specifications, the device will not feel comfortable or be of benefit. Devices should be made by a certified lab. A lot needs to happen for an orthotic to work. Sometimes adjustments are required. Make sure you get your devices from someone who can make minor adjustments in house. In my years of practice, I have seen many excellent orthotics prescribed and manufactured by competent practitioners, but unfortunately, I have also seen many poor devices. Hopefully this article helps you ask the right questions and make an informed choice. Until next time. Be proactive and seek help sooner than later.

ABC’s of Dementia lecture free to the public

The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan is offering a free lecture on the symptoms, warning signs, and available support programs for dementia. By Larissa Kurz

Alzheimer’s and dementia remains an important topic of conversation, as the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan is hosting an informational presentation titled “ABC’s of Dementia” in Moose Jaw on Mar. 20, at the Chez Nous Senior Citizens Home, from 7 - 8pm. The presentation will discuss Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia, the warning signs, and how people can help reduce the stigma around both conditions — as dementia is not simply a part of aging and can affect more than just older individuals. Abilities, behaviors, or communication are the three areas that can be affected by dementia, or the ABC’s as the presentation calls them.

(Shutterstock) Dementia remains a challenge to the health care system, with 10 people in Saskatchewan developing dementia every 24 hours, according to the Alzheimer’s Society.

Currently, 93% of dementia patients, caregivers, and professional service providers feel that the range of care services for Alzheimer’s and dementia diseases needs to be improved. The Alzheimer Society provides support for those living with dementia, their caregivers, and family and friends. Attendance to the event is free and no registration is required, and the presentation will be conducted by staff of the Alzheimer Society who will be providing free take-home print materials for those interested. More information about the event can be found at the Alzheimer Society’s website.

Workshop aims to build confident children Matthew Gourlie

Children face a lot of challenges in the modern world and a new workshop aims to give adults the tools to keep children’s self-worth strong. The workshop is hosted by Laurie Davis. It outlines 10 strategies to support youth from becoming the victims of bullying, to help them be more articulate and to support them in their dreams and goals. Davis said that the workshop is geared towards parents, teachers, athletic coaches, youth workers and anyone else who works with children. “This is a specific program that is designed for anyone who has kids in their care,” Davis said. “It’s my approach to anti-bullying. I don’t like the word bullying or anti- anything, but it gives them some strategies to support the kids. Bullies don’t really prey on confident children; they prey on children that they know are insecure or who lack self-esteem. If we can bolster up the esteem of our children that [helps to] reduce their risk of being bullied, actually.” Davis’ workshop, 10 Ways To Build Confident Children, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Mar. 30 at the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa.

While Davis notes that this isn’t a parenting program. “This is about knowing about kids and knowing about selfworth.” Sh feel that attendees need to realize that the current reality for children is vastly different than the world many of them grew up in. “I really think that we parent the way we were parented, and we teach the way we were taught,” Davis said. “We need to change some of those cycles. It’s a totally different world than it was 20 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago. A lot of teachers and parents are stuck in those mentoring roles. It’s really to help people step out of the box and try some things that are different and that actually support the kids.” Davis said that while the focus is on developing tools for children, she finds that the adults that attend also learn tools for developing their own self-worth. “In the process of the workshop, even though the focus is on 10 ways to build confident children, we cannot pass on to our children what we do not have in place for ourselves. If I don’t have any confidence, chances are my kids don’t either,” she said. “The day of the work-

Laurie Davis will be in Moose Jaw for a workshop on Mar. 30. Handout photo shop, that’s one of the outcomes, people realize ‘wow, maybe I need to do some work on me.’” Davis was a school teacher for 15 years and then decided to retire to open her own private training company 34 years ago. “I’ve been doing this longer than most people have been alive,” she said. Davis said she learned so much during her times as a teacher; she felt she saw

some things missing within the school system. She feels that children are more vulnerable now that they were a number of years ago and for a variety of reasons. “I taught many, many years ago and we would have the odd fight on the playground, but certainly [now] with social media, there are more ways for kids to be bullied,” Davis said. “It’s not just about physically being bullied on the playground. They could have a teacher bullying them or a parent even bullying them, exercising what they feel is their authority. Now the divorce rate is higher, and children are living blended families. Often-times that stepmom or stepdad, who is not on board, can become the bully without the birth parents even knowing about it. There are many more opportunities now for individuals to bully than before.” The early bird price for the workshop is $99 before Mar. 22 and $149 afterwards. Lunch and a workbook will be provided.

TRADING THOUGHTS

Ottawa soap opera features peek at inner workings of government Politics is the art of compromising between choices. That compromise involves choices between what voters want, what’s best for voters, what is best for the governing party, and occasionally, what is affordable. During the past weeks Canadians have witnessed what can happen when by Ron Walter choices and strong personalities clash. Former attorney general and justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould resigned her new cabinet post of veterans’ affairs, citing she was hounded at least 10 times to allow Quebec-based SNC Lavalin a deferred prosecution penalty rather than face a court trial and government mandated penalties that could devastate the company’s future. In testimony to the justice committee, Wilson-Raybould said she believed her demotion from attorney general and justice was the consequence of not giving SNC the deferred prosecution agreement, lobbied for by the Prime Minister’s Office, and, according to her, the prime minister. While she was offended by the inappropriate lobbying, she said nothing illegal was done.

Former PMO director Gerry Butts. in testimony to the justice committee, said Wilson-Raybould was not demoted because of her refusal to give SNC the agreement. Butts said he believed contacting her about the SNC matter was appropriate because she hadn’t offered a written decision on the issue, and she always wrote up her decisions and affairs, as we saw from her testimony. He also noted she had been offered the Indigenous affairs portfolio, but refused, citing her disgust of the Indian Act. In 13 cabinet shuffles this professional back room dealer had never seen any minister refuse a cabinet position. Attorney general and justice was her dream job, although at Indigenous affairs she likely could have made important changes. Then again, she might have thought she was the token Indigenous person in that portfolio. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau echoed Butts’ testimony, not offering the expected apology for his part in the erosion of trust. The national media and Opposition Conservatives have had a field day with this matter, writing about how terrible the PMO and Trudeau were, speculating on what happened and wanting more testimony. Conservative leader Andrew Scheer and his colleagues roast the PMO and Trudeau daily, saying the interference with the attorney general, who has last say over the independent public prosecutor, requires an independent inquiry.

What really happened here was a public airing of government’s inner workings when an as yet unidentified person leaked the information to the media. Justin Trudeau recruited a pile of non-political candidates, Wilson- Raybould among them, by promising his government would operate differently from past regimes. He tried but when political needs overshadowed, in his opinion, the law, pressure was applied. Wilson-Raybould, a non-partisan person of principle, rebelled and resigned. This pushing the envelope on the attorney general’s independence was a matter of who is the boss? Trudeau or Wilson-Raybould? Forget about her Indigenous background, her gender, she disobeyed the boss and paid for it. Employees, cabinet ministers included, refuse the boss’ demands at their own peril. Voters should understand this has been going on since Sir John A. Macdonald got caught in the 1880s. Prime Minister Stephen Harper saw a need to take action, creating the office of independent public prosecutor. He didn’t go far enough. He should have split the attorney general and justice minister into two portfolios with the attorney general outside of cabinet to ensure no inappropriate lobbying Perhaps, one of Trudeau’s “lessons learned” will cause that split.

Planned farmer seed royalty plan not understood By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express

AGRIMART

EXPRESS

The Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission believes that farmers need consultation time before a proposed seed royalty law is approved. “Sask. Wheat has not taken a stand on either option,” commissioner Jake

Leguee told a Sask. Wheat workshop in Moose Jaw. “We think the royalty proposal isn’t understood and farmers need more time to understand it.” The federal government plans to approve one of the options this spring. Consultations started last fall and were extended into this year. Both options would require royalties be paid on grain saved for seed – tradition-

al farm practice. Farmers and farm organizations have opposed the scheme over increased cost to farmers and a belief the plan will encourage government to stop funding new seed research. The scheme would apply only to seed varieties registered after a 2015 treaty. Research is the main focus of Sask. Wheat with 80 per cent of the annual

$6 million budget allocated to it, said Leguee, a Weyburn farmer. Since being formed in 2013, Sask. Wheat’s $19.1 million in research has helped fund $104 million of wheat research. Funds are raised from a voluntary producer check-off at sale.

As winter thaw begins to melt away, springtime brings something else into existence. And no, we’re not talking about fresh flowers, but rather something more daunting: potholes. Potholes are often at their worst in spring, caused by the expansion and contraction of water in the ground. In winter, this water expands, and then contracts as the weather warms up, leaving a cracked, broken pavement in its wake.

All it took was about twenty minutes of playing catch with a softball and our old baseball gloves before I was reminded of why I had to quit playing the wonderful game of “Rounders”. Baseball of all by Dale “bushy” Bush sorts including hardball, softball, fast pitch, slo-pitch and even sno-pitch has always been important to me and my family, probably because my Mom loved the game. The spring I had to quit playing was a long sad season indeed. My shoulder and the arm that was somewhat attached to it gave out in my fifties after serving me well in work and recreation (hockey, broomball, baseball, skiing and curling), but I had accumulated a few too many boo boos a few too many times and the writing was painfully on the wall. As a result of having an athletic lifestyle, I retired from beer league baseball during spring training in 2004 after making a magnificent catch in deep left field and then quickly and accurately throwing the ball to my cut-off man/girl. Sadly, I also threw my entire arm and shoul-

der along with the ball and had to ask the shortstop to throw my arm back. I hung up my glove that day moving to a coaching position only. First base coaching allowed me to be involved in the game and still be able to sip a beer without the umpire enforcing the no drinking in the field rule. My Mom was a good ball player, although I never saw her actually play on a team other than scrub. When it came to the skills, you could tell she had played some good ball. With six ball-playing kids, her opportunities for coaching and umpiring were numerous. One year she coached three teams because no one else could or would. It is a good thing we lived across the street from the community hall and fields. That love of the game was instilled in all six of us. We played on a family slo-pitch team, The Bushwackers, for almost 12 years. We were pretty good and won a few league titles but never did any better than 2nd in the provincials…always a bridesmaid… When a new boyfriend or girlfriend was introduced to the family there was an intense interview quiz that would go like this, “Can you play baseball?...What is your batting average?...What kind of beer do you drink?...and finally, Do you play hockey?” The family may have lucked-out because all my brothers and sisters in-laws passed the interview with the one exception being my brother in law from Saskatchewan and his modest hockey skills were easily substituted

When she had to retire, her arms and shoulders were just fine but her attractive knees became wobblier and wobblier even with expensive athletic braces. I experienced the reverse, with my shoulders and arms being afflicted with a few “itis-es”, bursitis and arthritis, but my knees not only look great but still perform with no pain in hockey. I can exercise and warm up my arm but I am unable to throw anything more than a fit. It has been quite a while since I threw my arm from left field to the cut-off. Even though I still dig our gloves out each spring and give them the old Mink Oil treatment they are both rarely used. I get the itch every spring and actually entertain the thought of playing underhanded until I try to throw underhanded and realize that instead of one cut-off man to throw to…I might need 2 or 3.

AGRIMART

EXPRESS The highest crop insurance levels ever were announced by Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Dave Marit. Under the 2019 Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation plan, average coverage increases to $230 an acre from $216 in 2018. While coverage increased 6.5 per cent premiums increased a mere 2.4 per cent Corn insured to $8.61 an acre average. Increased yields and some commodity price increases were cited for higher coverage. The insurance pays out based on individual farm yields and can be tailored to farm needs with different levels of coverage. Enhancements to coverage include 55 new weather stations for a total of 186 for tame and native grazing rainfall insurance. Marit said the new stations place 90 per cent of farms within 30 km of a weather station. Crop insurance had complaints that stations were to far apart with many at 100 km distance. Consulting with producers gave rise to increased vales for grazing insurance coverage. The new program extends coverage from corn heat units to rainfall coverage. If rain falls below 80 percent below long-term average producers of form for cattle feed can collect. Another change insures corn for $90 an acre if it fails to establish. A southeastern grain corn insurance is also offered. Last year was challenging for farmers. Excess moisture delayed seeding, a dry year wilted crops and early snow delated harvest. As a consequence, the insurance plan paid out $300 million, a lot more than expected. “The crop was better than anticipated,” Marit told a video news conference. He encouraged farmers to make use of other risk management programs. “Risk management has really become more important for Saskatchewan farmers.” Marit cautioned there will be no ad hoc assistance programs if crops fail. The province share of crop insurance premiums last year was $185 million, up from $173 million in 2017 Producers pay 40 percent of premiums with the rest paid by senior governments.

New exhibit by contemporary bead artist an “act of love� Matthew Gourlie

Catherine Blackburn’s newest body of work took her on an unexpected journey. The Saskatchewan artist had created a piece of ‘futuristic regalia’ as the starting point for her next project as the nascent project began to take shape. “I had completed one look for this body of work at the point of applying to Toronto Indigenous Fashion Week. I did it on a whim, thinking ‘what are the chances? I’m not a clothing designer.’ And I got in,� Blackburn said. “It was good in a way because it gave me a deadline to really get the ball rolling on everything else. I had to really push from there because I had about a year to prepare. “It organically took form in a way that was unexpected. There were a lot of surprises in creating this work and part of that was the fashion runway show, which I am so thankful for.� The result, after two years of work, is Blackburn’s “New Age Warriors� which opened at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery and will run through to May 5. While Blackburn had previously made jewelry, she had primarily exhibited paintings in galleries. Her new exhibit debuted at the Mann Art Gallery in Prince Albert in September. Blackburn used Perler beads to construct the garments, head pieces and other regalia and then included friends and family wearing the regalia in photos taken by Tenille Campbell. After the pieces were worn in Toronto, they were also exhibited as part of the Otahpiaaki Fashion Week in Calgary in November. Video from that runway show is also part of the Moose Jaw exhibit. Blackburn is of mixed Dene and European heritage. She was born in Patuanak — an hour north of Beauval — and is a member of the English River First Nation but grew up in Choiceland. Her grandmother, Christine George, was an experienced beadwork artist, but Blackburn didn’t begin beading herself until after she finished her Fine Arts degree at the University of Saskatchewan. Leaving Patuanak at such a young age, Blackburn said she was removed from many of the traditional teachings of her nation. “It wasn’t until after university when I was navigating my way through my own cultural identity in my work that I found my good friend Kirsten Ryder and she taught me beadwork,� Blackburn said. Ryder and Blackburn were partnered together working as youth workers on Ryder’s reserve in Morley, Alta. Ryder is one of the women photographed wearing the pieces in the exhibit. Working with Ryder was how Blackburn initially learned beading technique before her grandmother taught her some construction techniques. “This work was born from her. This started as a memoir of my grandmother,� Blackburn said. “My grandma never would have thought of herself as a beadwork artist. She made pieces. She gifted work. That’s a way of life for indigenous people. Adorning clothing was part of utilitarian wear -- to stay warm. For Dene culture, it was about making a jacket that kept you warm while you hunted caribou. Adorning it was an act of love for the wearer. “That’s really what I wanted to be at the forefront of this work. This is an act of love. I’m doing this for people. This becomes a gesture of honour.� Collaboration also became an important

part of the process in creating the work. Blackburn was trying to navigate what patterns she could and should use in her creations and found a resolution by collaborating with other contemporary Indigenous artists. “Part of the challenge was that I didn’t want to step into territory that wasn’t mine and start borrowing from design that wasn’t mine and disrespecting cultures and nations in that way,� she said. She began by reaching out to Alano Edzerza, a west coast artist who is Tlingit and Tahltan, and she created a high-collared piece based on his design called ‘Birth of the Beaver Clan.’ “He said to me ‘I didn’t know it was going to end up looking like that!’ I told him, ‘neither did I!’� Blackburn recalled with a laugh.

“This isn’t a show rooted in colonial ills, this is a show rooted in pride and honour and reclamation and power.� - Catherine Blackburn

Blackburn said all of the collaborations came together very organically and so too did much of the work. Among her

other collaborators were Liss Stender, an Inuk artist from Greenland and Tessa Sayers, a beadwork artist. She also honoured her grandmother who passed away during the process of making the work. A portrait of her grandmother is woven into the back of one of the pieces. Her grandmother had made her a pair of moccasins and some of the patterns and colour schemes from those are also incorporated into that piece. “It was important to also honour my grandmother’s designs to some aspect,� Blackburn said. The title cards for the pieces are frequently dated many years, decades or event centuries into the future as “arti-

facts from the future.� There are streetwear and graffiti influences in the work and while it has a futuristic quality, it also is deeply rooted in Indigenous culture. “This work is very much speaking to a future and the next generation and it’s made for that generation,� Blackburn said “It speaks to a past, it’s in the present and it’s informing the future. When I think about that, I think about the mark that we leave on this land, how temporal our existence is. That feeds into Indigenous culture and Indigenous ways of living and that adaptability, that utilitarian way of using land and how we live together within that relationship.� That balance between creating something new and keeping it rooted in tradition comes across strongly in the work, but Blackburn said it was a real challenge to not make the pieces look gimmicky and not make them look like a costume. “It needs to speak to a regalia that speaks to a future and it can’t replay those same narratives of what we see today sold in stores. We need to break free of that,� Blackburn said. “That’s why I call these women ‘warriors’. There’s a constant fight, a constant battle to be seen, to reclaim space and how we see land, how we see treaty negotiations, how we see broken systems, how we see socio-economic marginalization. It’s all of these things. “This isn’t a show rooted in colonial ills, this is a show rooted in pride and honour and reclamation and power.�

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS No red tape for naming own holidays During the coming week we will all have an opportunity to stretch our minds and imaginations in celebration of — World Folklore and Fables Week. But better than that, March 26 is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. The possibilities for these overlapping occasions are Joyce Walter endless, mind-boggling, perhaps even silly and useless. For Moose Jaw Express But it might be fun to see what the outcome could be from these kidding-around moments. While they are probably no longer politically-correct or acceptable in today’s world, the stories and rhymes compiled under the control of Mother Goose satisfied the decades-ago appetites for fables and fairy tales. I have not kept up with knowing whether there is a modern Mother Goose flying around making up stories to entertain children of today, but I suspect she has been replaced. But that does not mean we cannot continue to be happy

in recalling some of the tales and stories read to us by doting parents who wanted their children to be fanciful yet grounded in reality. Once I could read for myself, I was more into the Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables but still enjoyed a good musical rendition of Three Blind Mice. How did I know that it would become a modern derogatory scream aimed at hockey officials? But let’s move onto making up one’s own holiday day. I think I’d like to celebrate “Mother Goose Day” in the most retro fashion, reading those rhymes and stories without subscribing any nasty hidden meanings. “Wish I had a dog day” could take me to the animal shelter to pet the dogs looking for what are called “forever homes.” Leaving them there would be difficult though but not as difficult as trying to sneak one into the house without Housemate catching on. Perhaps a “non-snow day” would be fun, giving schools the day off and closing down non-essential services to allow free-spirited celebration that doesn’t involve shoveling snow or scraping ice - a paid day off of course to make it more notable.

Celebrating a “Canadian win at women’s world curling day” would be a fine way to acknowledge the sport, even though I’m not keen on the team that represents our country. But a maple leaf is a maple leaf and so I will cheer all our wins and precise shots. “Free car wash day” might not be a boon to the economy but it would attract major crowds to local car washes and could promote return business based on the size and number of puddles on many of the main thoroughfares. Make it a carnival and serve mini doughnuts and deepfried pickles to whet the appetites for summer fairs. A complete 24 hour cycle for a “good news day” might be the most celebrated made-up holiday. Which of us doesn’t get tired of reading and hearing about murder, mayhem, tragedy and political one-upmanship? The best thing of all about these made up holidays is that we won’t have to wait for governments to hold hearings and town hall meetings to enact the necessary legislation. We’re as free as the breeze to name our days. If it strikes our fancy and it isn’t illegal or offensive, let’s holiday. Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Local trap and skeet club exhibits at annual gun show By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Trap and Skeet club has seen almost as many ups and downs as the clay pigeon targets used by members. “It’s been here forever,” said member John Johnson at the club exhibit during the annual Moose Jaw Gun Show. “In the past membership has gone down to almost zero. Now it’s on the increase. People are doing more target shooting and stuff like that. “Trespassing laws and more difficulty in getting out in the country” may also account for the higher level of interest. “You need to be asking for permission. Now there’s a place where you can go target shooting.” The club is shotguns only. “You can just come and shoot. You don’t have to have a gun. If anybody wants to give it a try the club is happy to have them and if they need instruction, they’ll get instruction.”

Lots of guns Two types of shooting are involved. In trap shooting the shooter fires from five different positions at clay pigeons flying straight out. Skeet shooting involves firing at two clay pigeons coming across from the left and right. Located just east of Thatcher Drive East, the club is open Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons from spring until fall as long as the snow is gone. Opening may

be in April. The club operates a Facebook page. The annual gun show is one of two fundraisers for the South Saskatchewan Wildlife Association (SSWA), said director Tim Yates. This year’s version had 170 tables and 46 exhibitors for the two-day show selling guns, accessories, knives, wildlife art, outdoor clothing, raffle tickets, even baking. Sask. Environment’s wildlife trailer was set up with conservation officers discussing hunting laws, access to private property and the Turn In Poachers hotline. Yates said the SSWA does lots of things in the community. “We sponsor a youth fishing derby every year free for kids out at Buffalo Pound Park, we release pheasants, we run a biathlon club for kids, we run a target shooting program for kids.”

Jobless numbers increase in southwest Saskatchewan By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express There were 2,600 unemployed workers in the Swift Current-Moose Jaw labour region at the end of February. That was 400 more jobless than last year, according to the monthly Statistics Canada Labour Survey. Unemployment rate of 4.9 per cent was the second lowest of five Saskatchewan regions. Last year the unemployment rate was 4.2 per cent in this region. Approximately1,000 fewer people were working in the region than last year at the end of February. Lowest unemployment rate in the province

was 4.2 per cent in the Regina-Moose Mountain region. The Saskatchewan unemployment rate of 5.7 per cent dropped from 6.1 per cent and was tied with Quebec and New Brunswick for third lowest in the country. Lowest unemployment rate was 4.7 per cent in B.C. with the highest unemployment rate of 12.8 per cent in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Canadian unemployment rate of 5.8 per cent dropped from 5.9 per cent. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel. net

The SSWA operates an indoor shooting gun range and handgun club at its offices in the basement of the Sportsman’s Centre. The shooting range is used for firearm safety education programs. The SSWA has a website and Facebook page. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Newest member of MJPS canine unit quickly proving his worth Matthew Gourlie On his first day on the force, PSD Argo helped make his first criminal apprehension. Argo, the newest member of the Moose Jaw Police Service’s canine unit, and his partner Cst. Curtis Amiot had an eventful end to their first shift together in the field a month ago. “There was a guy who had warrants and we were bringing him out to the vehicle and he took off on us. The partner that I was with, she tried to chase him for a little while, and I ran to the vehicle to get Argo,” Cst. Amiot said. “We met up where she saw him last and we did a short track. I tried to get him to stop running and he wouldn’t listen after a couple of warnings, so Argo made him stop running. “The dogs aren’t there to rip people up. They’re there to hold. He came away with pretty minimal injuries.” That criminal apprehension helped show the utility of using dogs in policing. The MJPS have had a canine unit for nine years and Amiot feels having Argo available simplified the capture.

“Because we were able to end it quicker… it kept him from maybe injuring himself in the railyard or maybe somebody else.” -Cst. Curtis Amiot

“We were still 100 yards away and I could have closed the gap on the guy if I was by myself but having that option it was just over so much faster,” Amiot said. “We were by the railroad tracks and because (Argo) was so much faster than I would have been, Argo kept him off the tracks, it kept him away from the public. “Because we were able to end it quicker… it kept him from maybe injuring himself in the railyard or maybe somebody else. The speed and the power is definitely an asset.” The MJPS operate on one-officer vehicles during their patrols. As a partner, Argo is a little on the quiet side, but Amiot said it is nice to have someone out there who has your back if he is responding alone. “It is a little bit of a safety blanket knowing that you do have somebody with you if need be,” Amiot said. “If you feel like you’re maybe going to get into some sort of weapons-related incident, then it’s good to have that. A lot of times that’s a de-escalator. Some people see the dog and they don’t want to have any part of that. Even if he’s not used, his presence is sometimes a bit of a

Cst. Curtis Amiot with PSD Argo, the newest member of the Moose Jaw Police Service’s canine unit. Matthew Gourlie photograph deterrent.” Cst. Chad Scheske is the unit’s co-ordinator and has had a dog for nine years since the program’s inception. When the other member of the unit earned a promotion, Amiot won an internal competition to be the next member to work with a dog. The unit’s ranks will double this summer. Cst. Jim Biniaris and Merc, along with Cst. Aaron Woods and True both begin their training in mid-March as the MJPS will have four PSDs in the field by July. The training is 600 hours and works out to 16 weeks. By the end of the training, the dog and its handler must attain standards outlined by the Saskatchewan Provincial Standard for Police Dogs. The standard sets out the minimums that each team must be able to perform in order to provide service to the community in the following areas: tracking, evidence search, large and small building searches, compound searches and criminal apprehension. “It was a nice break, but I actually like working nights, so it was nice to come back,” Amiot said of his 16 weeks of training with Argo. “It was a good break from the radio and getting calls, but canine training was a lot more mentally demanding than I thought it was going to be.” Part of the training time also allowed Amiot and Argo to bond together. “He lives at my house, so that’s all a part of us building a bond,” Amiot said. “He’s set up outside, but he comes home every night with me and he’s mine to take care of. That’s part of the bonding process that I’m directing him

99 per cent of the time.” The two also travel into Regina once a month to take part in further training with members of the Regina Police Service. Argo aided in tracking a suspect from a pharmacy robbery on Feb. 4. He has also been used for two building searches that ended up being useful training exercises, though there was no one present either time. Amiot is looking forward to some warmer weather which will make Argo’s job much easier. “This is really tough tracking weather,” Amiot said. “With the pharmacy (robbery) it was minus-30 and there was a bunch of snow. He did OK, but I’m excited for the snow to melt and for us to start working on some soft surface like some grass. You have to imagine that even the temperature has an effect.” Argo is a 19-month old purebred German shepherd from Slovakia. The hope is that a member of the canine unit will service between 5-7 years depending on their health. Cst. Scheske is on his third dog after the first two were retired after three years each. The Regina Police Service just retired a dog after nine years. Hip problems have been one of the issues with some of the dogs who retired early, which is why Argo came from Europe. “The North American line of German shepherds, their bodies are a little different. Over time their hips get a little lower so you’ll see that sloped back of a German shepherd, whereas Argo is a little more square to the ground,” Amiot explained. Amiot and Argo work in 12-hour shifts. Amiot is in the regular patrol queue like everyone else. Amiot enjoys still doing regular investigations, but the shift does have challenges. “The biggest challenge is trying to get your dog out every few hours to go for a bathroom break and maybe to get a little bit of exercise and trying to wiggle that between calls. Sometimes that’s the biggest challenge,” Amiot said. Amiot is part of the same team he was working with before he and Argo began their training. He said it’s been a smooth transition so far and credits Sgt. Randy Jesse and the rest of his team for that. “He’s really pro-dog and he thinks we really have some good use and he likes the stuff we can do and what we can get into,” Amiot said. “We’re in the queue so it’s up to the sergeants and the supervisors and maybe dispatch to pick if they want to keep you out of something that’s going to tie you up for a long time or if they’re going to send you on something that is maybe more applicable to you and not your general patrol person. “I try to volunteer. If I hear something and it sounds like maybe we can be of some use, I’ll volunteer to go.”

Funding to create a new Family Resource Centre in Moose Jaw Early Years Family and Resource Centres offer a range of supports for families with young children, and Moose Jaw will be opening a new centre in 2019. By Larissa Kurz

Seven communities will be receiving funding to open a new Early Years Family and Resource Centre in their area, and Moose Jaw is on that list — alongside Prince Albert, Saskatoon, the Battlefords, Nipawin, Meadow Lake, and one community in the North. Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gord Wyant announced $1.5 million in funding for the project, provided through the Canada-Saskatchewan Early Learning and Child Care Agreement. This type of centre offers information, services, and supports to help families with young children raise their kids in a positive environment. The new centres will be developed in partnership with KidsFirst, a program that offers family support and early learn-

ing and child care opportunities to families, and are planned to open in the fall of 2019. KidsFirst currently has programs running at the Strong Start Family Centre in Moose Jaw, located

at the YMCA. Krista Horton, Transitions Leader for Primary Health Care Teams at Strong Start Family Centre, said they are very excited to be receiving funds for this development, as they have been working very hard to develop programs in Moose Jaw of this kind. “We’ve seen the power a family resource centre can have in a community, and we’ve been working towards building them in Moose Jaw, and there’s a lot of potential here in Moose Jaw,” said Horton. This announcement comes on the heels of an announcement of 128 new licensed daycare spots in the province, offering another avenue of support to families with young children.

Screen time could be affecting children’s development

Parents should be concerned about both the content and the amount of time their children are spending in front of a screen, according to behavioural specialists. By Larissa Kurz

Allowing your children too much screen time can be detrimental to their health, according to a recent presentation titled Screen Time and the Brain, given at the Moose Jaw Public Library. Layne Pethick, behavioural disorder and autism consultant at Region10 ESC, and Krystal Hawkins, early childhood behavioural consultant and mental health therapist, offered their expertise on the topic of children and the effects that screen time can have on both natural development and behaviour. The recommended dose of screen time, from ages six and onwards, is about 2 hours per day, and children younger than 6 are recommended to be having less; infants to age 2, none at all. Screen time can be categorized as any time spent using a screen: smart phones, computers, tablets, television, video games, and so on. Both Pethick and Hawkins iterated that their message was not to tell parents that screen time is inherently bad, but that it needs to be monitored and regulated to create a healthy environment for children to develop in. Most people can list the most common adverse effects screens have on the body — eye strain, headaches, problems sleeping — but Pethick and Hawkins had a few to add to the list. Too much screen time can affect attention,

Pethick also noted that staring at a screen for too long can cause the brain to send hunger signals to the stomach and potentially cause overeating, which contributes to obesity. Citing both research and practical experiences, Pethick and Hawkins emphasized that too much screen time can produce addiction and withdrawal symptoms similar to cocaine or heroin. “The addictive qualities worry us the most, the sheer addictiveness that screen times can bring,” said Pethick. “It can rewire parts of the brain, it can cause social issues, behavior issues, learning issues. There’s just a multitude of things that can go south with our kids with too much screen time.” Children with a screen time addiction can

Kids, cell phones and school…Anyone?…. Anyone? by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor From the, “It’s about time!” file… The Ontario government recently announced a ban on cell phones in the classroom. As of the beginning of the next school year, students in that province will no longer be allowed to have their cell phones during instructional hours. Let the debate begin! Aside from my 11-year-old son (and he reminds me daily), I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t have a smart phone. That is an exaggeration, I know, but these things have essentially become a body part. Us old people remember the days when these phones did

have trouble with emotional regulation, social interaction, and processing skills — which can manifest as overreactions when asked to turn off the screen, moodiness when deprived of a screen, and choosing to interact online rather than in person, among others. The more advanced symptoms include psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, and paranoia. Parents who regularly use a phone or tablet to keep their children occupied in public can actually be hindering their children in terms of learning how to self-regulate their behaviour and feelings. Boredom, as Pethick noted, is actually beneficial to children’s development as it forces them to develop decision making skills, processing skills, and self-coping skills. The silver lining that Pethick and Hawkins offered was that parents can do their part by limiting the time spent on screens and by connecting with their children. “It’s just that screens aren’t the enemy, but we really need to moderate and make sure that the time that we’re connecting with our children is more than the time they’re connecting with screens,” said Hawkins. In light of the Momo Challenge hoax making headlines, Hawkins’ advice to parents concerned about a situation like that was to “teach our children how to engage with and respond appropriately with that kind of content.”

not exist. If our parents needed to get in contact with us during school hours, they would phone the school and we would be paged to “come to the office”. If kids had to contact a parent, the office had the phone numbers in a filing cabinet. We all did fine!! I fully admit there are many benefits to my older son having his cell phone, as there have been a few times when I have contacted him with changes in pickup times or other after-school activities. While this convenience is nice, does our immediate access to our kids come at a cost? And if it does, is the potential harm worth having this convenience? There is scientific evidence suggesting that having a cell phone at school (and at work) affects attention and productivity. For students this potentially distracts them from learning. There are some detractors who will argue this, saying there isn’t enough research to support policy for an all-out ban on phones in the classroom. The argument for keeping cell phones in the classroom until we have enough evidence to show they are harming our

“We can’t monitor absolutely everything they come across,” said Hawkins. “We need to teach them how to handle it, how to respond to it, and know when to not engage.” Ultimately, both Hawkins and Pethick advise parents to be more aware of their children’s screen time usage and how it seems to be affecting their lives, and to live by example. “The piece that I really want to drive home is that it’s just so easy, and I say that as a parent, to let our children give us our space by connecting on screens, and it is a really slippery slope when you start that habit of behavior, how quickly it can become dangerous,” said Hawkins. “Be more involved with their children, at all levels of their lives, and to help them learn how to regulate all of the things they have to deal with; screen times, how friends work, social issues, things like that,” said Pethick, “Just be by their side and help them become the best human begins that they can.” For parents wanting to do more research of their own, Pethick suggested beginning with the Canadian Pediatrics Society website, as they link other information of note, the American Academy of Pediatrics website, or the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Developmental study for adolescents.

students is like saying, “let’s keep prescribing a certain drug until we have research telling us whether it is harmful or not.” I fear that we will go through an entire generation of school kids with cell phone access and realize too late that bans should have been enforced. I am not a psychologist, a teacher, or a neurologist. However, I am a chiropractor, and I see a lot of student spines. Even if there is no ban on cell phones in the classroom for reasons of attention and learning deficit, the potential stress on the spine should worry us enough to limit the use of these things as much as we can. Every day I see kids in my office who have headache, neck and back ache due to postural stress on the spine. Cell phone use adds to the strain on the spine. I note muscle tightness in kids backs and necks that wouldn’t usually be noticed until well into adult years. Have we gone too far to be able to successfully enforce a cell phone ban at school? Maybe if schools don’t do it, parents should.

of why the registration night is more mandatory this year than in previous years. “We’ve usually made it a come-and-go, but this year we really are encouraging the returning gardeners to come out,” said Sept. “It’s just a great time for the gardeners to get to know each other and to build that sense of community that is important

The gardens at Home St. W are still frozen, but registration is starting for the 2019 season. Returning gardeners, spring is almost here and the Yara Community Garden is hosting a registration night to talk gardening and to sign up for this year’s plots. At 7:00 p.m. on Mar. 28th, all returning gardeners are asked to gather at Hunger in Moose Jaw for some new info about the community gardens and to book and pay for their plots this year. With 140 plots and several raised beds available, returning gardeners will be given first opportunity to reserve their space before plots are offered

to those on the waiting list. This year, plots will be priced at 10¢ per square foot and raised beds at $10 each. All fees must be paid on or by March 28th to reserve a plot for the season before plots are offered to others on the waiting list. Sharla Sept, executive director for Hunger in Moose Jaw, noted that there’s always a waiting list for plots, which is good news for the program. The garden aims to promote a sense of community, alongside the importance of food security, which is part

to the gardens.” Registration for new gardeners will have its own registration night, at a date yet to be determined. More information about the upcoming event can be found on the Facebook page, or by calling the Hunger in Moose Jaw office at 692-1916.

Local schools show their acting chops during drama festival 40th annual event features 10 plays covering wide variety of topics and genres Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

If Cornerstone Christian School actor Izaak Falk appeared especially comfortable on stage playing a heavily dramatic role during his school’s performance of ‘Walkin’ Home’ on Saturday night, that’s because, well, he was. Falk was one of more than 200 actors, directors and crew from schools throughout Moose Jaw who took part in the 40th annual Region 2 Drama Festival at A.E. Peacock throughout the weekend. His performance as older son Nate in the 35-minute one-act play was an emotional one but at the same time one he was more than used to after years of experience dating back to elementary school performances. As one might expect, that helps immensely when you get on stage. “It gets a little bit easier, but the nerves are never going to go away; you’re always a little nervous when you’re going on stage. It’s like your heart is pounding and you’re looking out into the crowd and everyone is looking back at you,” Falk said during a break between plays on Saturday afternoon. “You feel like everyone is like, ‘oh, he’s going to mess up’ but then you realize everyone is there to have a good time and that takes the edge off. “It does get easier with time, though; you get to know what to expect.” That feeling showed throughout the weekend, as actors

‘Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit’ by A. E. Peacock featured one of the largest casts of the festival.

Actors with Cornerstone Christian School perform their drama ‘Walkin’ Home’. from schools all over the city showed skill and ability beyond what one would normally expect from a high school – or even an elementary school with Caronport and Lindale also putting together impressive performances. “That’s the thing about Moose Jaw, we’ve come to expect that you’re going to see good theatre, you’re not just going to see high school shows, you’re going to see good theatre and that’s pretty special,” said Cornerstone’s Tanya Johnson, host co-ordinator for the event alongside Lindale’s Charmaine Collinge. “Moose Jaw is just a great theatre town, so all the schools have great programs with fantastic effort and support from teachers and parents, and then the kids just shine on stage. So this festival hasn’t been disappointing at all.” This year’s plays included ‘Face Your Fears’ by Lindale School; ‘Boxes’ by Cornerstone Christian School; ‘The Seussification of A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ by Milestone School; ‘Nora’s Lost’ and ‘Hint’ by Vanier Collegiate; ’12 Angry Pigs’ by Caronport Elementary School; ’10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse’ by Riverview Collegiate; and ‘Cut’ and ‘Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit’ by A.E. Peacock to go along with Cornerstone’s ‘Walkin’ Home’. The event was more than just a series of shows for par-

Vanier Collegiate actors on stage during their showing of the dramedy ‘HINT’. ents and grandparents – the top plays advance to the Saskatchewan Drama Association Provincial Festival, taking place May 9-11 at the University of Regina. To that end, adjudicators are on site essentially from set-up to tear-down, watching and marking each step of the way, with a host of awards ranging from technical production to acting ability presented at the end of the weekend. “Every aspect is marked, and even our technical rehearsal is looked at,” Johnson said. “When we come in, we get 90 minutes to set up our productions. There’s adjudicators who are working with our students at that point and how we’re organizing our shows. So they judge that, as well as the performance front of house, the acting and the overall production.” The best move on to the provincial festival, where it should come as no surprise to anyone who saw this weekend’s plays that Moose Jaw tends to do quite well. “You’re usually competing against the best 11 or 12 plays in the province. They’ve all advanced from their regions so they’re going to be really good,” Johnson said. “And it’s a great experience for the kids; they get to learn so much… from performing in a new theatre to the acting techniques they pick up in their workshops. It’s just amazing.” Be sure to watch here for full results from the Region 2 Festival in the near future!

Woo signs with Vancouver Canucks

Warriors stand-out defenceman inks three-year entry-level contract Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The parade of milestones and career achievements for the Moose Jaw Warriors grows with the latest news marking the Tribe’s newest National Hockey League signee. The Vancouver Canucks decided to waste little time in officially bringing Jett Woo into the team’s fold, as despite having only drafted him this past summer they signed the 18-year-old defenceman to a three-year entry-level contract. “It’s something that’s every kid’s dream and after draft night and going through those motions, that was the next thing I hoped would happen,” Woo said after he and the Warriors closed out the regular season with a 6-0 win over the Swift Current Broncos on Saturday. “A lot of credit goes to this team and organization for putting me in spots to have success, on the power play and things like that, so it’s been a really good season for us and we’re looking forward to the playoffs and to continue the run.” Woo – who was drafted in the second round 37th overall by the Canucks – has put together a stunning jump in his

point production this season with 12 goals and 62 points in 61 games. That brought out a bit of media chatter in the last week, with talk on CJME radio sports shows and Vancouver news media drawing extra attention to the third-year Tribe standout. For his part, Woo just let things roll as they may until it was signing day. “I think there was some talk over the last little while between my agent and the Canucks, but I just tried to focus on hockey and do what I could for the team,” he said. “That’s what I did, the hard work was put in and I just had to sign a couple papers. It’s exciting, it’s fun and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.” The Canucks feel much the same way. “We’re very excited at the strides Jett has made this season with Moose Jaw,” said Canucks general manager Jim Benning in a press release. “He plays the game with good intensity and attention to detail at both ends of the ice. Jett is an important part of our future and we look forward to his continued development.”

High school wrestlers medal at provincials

Trio of Moose Jaw competitors post top-three finishes at SHSAA championships Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

An early loss only set the stage for an epic run for Peacock’s Ethan La Rose at the Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association provincial wrestling championships in Regina recently, as he went on to claim silver in the male 73-kilogram division. After losing by fall to Saskatoon Holy Cross’ Franco Paul in his second round match, La Rose proceed to win three straight bouts: defeating Saskatoon Evan Hardy’s Sebastian Bundrock by technical fall 10-0, Rosetown’s Borna Ivancec by forfeit and Saskatoon Marion Graham’s Logan Hrapchak by fall at the 4:02 mark of the ‘B’ side final. That sent La Rose into the medal round, where he picked up a measure of revenge by defeating Paul by pinfall at the 4:57 mark. He was unable to solve Swift Current’s Sebastien Marchand in the gold medal final, though, losing 10-0 but claiming the silver medal. After losing his first-round match, Peacock’s Kyle Yamniuk also went on a tear through the ‘B’ side, eventually coming all the way back to claim bronze in the male 62kg class. Along the way, Yamniuk picked up a 10-0 technical fall wins over Regina Miller’s Owen Wahl and Saskatoon Marion Graham’s Griffin Stewart before defeating Regina Campbell’s Aidan Carey by decision 9-0

In the medal round, an 11-0 loss to eventual gold medalist Andre Smith of Regina Martin was a minor setback before a 12-2 win over Swift Current’s Jordan Lamontange saw Yamniuk win bronze. Peacock’s Miheret Cridland won bronze in the female 53kg division and actually didn’t even have to take to

the mat for her medal match after Saskatoon Holy Cross’ Abigail Dutchak suffered an injury and was unable to compete for third place. That did little to dampen Cridland’s run to the medal, though, as after losing to Dutchak in her qualifier final, Cridland defeated Saskatoon Walter Murray’s Abigail Jones by technical fall 13-2 to win the ‘B’ side and advance to the championship round. There, she lost by fall to Regina Balfour’s Jayda Baker to reach the bronze medal match. Central’s Alexis Bradish reached the female 64kg consolation final but lost to Regina O’Neill’s Erica Houde by fall. Defending provincial bronze medalist Myra Szabo of Peacock was unable to return to the medal round in the female 80kg division despite picking up a pair of wins, with a loss in the consolation semifinal bringing her tourney to an end. Peacock’s Dylan Yamniuk (1-1, male 69kg) and Brayden Johnson (1-2, male 90kg) each picked up wins but missed the medal round, while Central’s Ulrik Tondevold (0-2, male 50kg), Peacock’s Liam Vargo (0-2, male 59kg) and Peacock’s Kayde Shymko (0-2 male 82kg) also competed at the event.

Warriors close out season with series of milestones Tribe sets new mark for road wins, hit 40-win plateau for third straight season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

It’s become rather redundant to say the Moose Jaw Warriors have overachieved this season, but at the same time the writing is on the wall. The Warriors hit another team milestone on Friday in Swift Current with their 6-1 win over the Broncos, as they picked up their 24th road win of the season, setting a new franchise record at 24-8-2-0 and breaking the mark set last season. Then, only 24 hours later, the Tribe cracked the 40-win mark with a 6-0 victory over the Swift Current Broncos at Mosaic Place, with the win giving the Tribe a 40-20-6-2 record and marking the third straight season they’ve reached that level of success. And that’s only touching on a couple of the team-wide marks the Warriors hit this season. “We accomplished a lot of great things this year and not a lot of people thought we would,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter, pointing out that the victory gave the Tribe 202 wins in the last five years, behind only Brandon with 203 wins in

The Warriors fired 46 shots at Swift Current’s Riley Lamb. Friday’s contest saw Almeida score twice and add two assists while Daniil Stepanov, Josh Brook, Carson Denomie and Keenan Taphorn all had single markers. Adam Evanoff made 21 saves for the win, the Warriors had 21 on Lamb.

Dominant season continues as Cyclones claim boys basketball championship Central takes 84-51 victory over Vanier Vikings in city final at Sask Polytech Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

With a record-setting regular season and success on the tournament circuit this year, Central Cyclones has a 21-12 lead over the Vanier Vikings in the first quarter and set the tone, 46-26 lead at the half the stage and it was all smooth sailing from there as Central would go on to claim their fourth-straight league title with an 84-51 victory. “It’s pretty good, it’s not the end goal since we’re still chasing provincials, but it’s definitely a nice win,” said Cyclones Grade 12 guard Kyle Boughen, one of

“It’s really nice,” Brownell said. “Three in a row is a big accomplishment for Central and all the guys. Now it’s regionals and provincials and hopefully this time we take it home.” Fharis Ebet added 14 points for the Cyclones while Hardil Khubber scored 10. Javan Panko paced Vanier with 14 points to go along with 10 from Nathan Meili.

the anchors of Central’s vaunted perimeter game. “I think it’s always important to come out hot, show them you’re ready. It kind of defeats them a bit if you come out hard, and then as the game goes on you don’t have to rush anything, you can play your game and keep things in control.” That’s what Central did, with a steady diet of pounding the ball inside to senior post Jaxson Brownell; that made the difference. Brownell finished the game with 23 points to lead all scorers. “I’m definitely happy with that, we saw a mismatch inside and we just kept going

to it,” he said. “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, so we just kept going in when it was working. And it’s kind of tough to shoot in this gym compared to our own gym, so it was easier to get lay-ups instead of shooting threes.” Even with the substantial deficit, the Vikings did their best to make a game of it in the third quarter and saw their share of success, much to the joy of their loud and raucous fans. While they were unable to make-up ground, they tied the quarter 18-18, taking a measure of pride out of the result. In the end, it was Central’s night, just as it has been all season.

Weisgerber named new head coach of Moose Jaw Generals

Former Warriors assistant takes over after Wareham, coaching staff relieved of position last week Moose Jaw Express Staff

The Moose Jaw Minor Hockey Association announced Monday that Trevor Weisberger will be taking over as the new head coach of the local Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League squad, taking over after head coach and general manager Ray Wareham was relieved of the position last week after 17 years with the team. “The Moose Jaw Minor Hockey Association is proud to present Trevor Weisgerber as the new head coach of the Moose Jaw Generals Midget AAA Generals,” Moose Jaw Minor Hockey Association president Patrick Boyle said in a press release. “This starts a new and exciting chapter in the Generals history. Trevor is an experienced and well-known name across the province and we believe this new approach will be the start to a positive change for minor hockey in the City of Moose Jaw.” Originally from Vibank, Weisgerber played Midget AAA in Moose Jaw and Swift Current and would go on to play two years in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League with Beardy’s and Yorkton from 1997 to 1999. He accepted a

full scholarship at Lake Superior State University where he played from 1999 to 2002. After completing school, Weisgerber played seven years professionally from 2002 to 2009 in the Central Hockey League, he would then join the Kindersley Klippers (SJHL) as an assistant coach for the 2009-2010 season. He was hired as an assistant coach with the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League and spent two seasons on the bench from 2010 to 2012. In 2012, Weisgerber left the Warriors to start Epic Hockey in Moose Jaw, in which he shares knowledge and experience that he’s gained through playing and coaching with younger players to help them develop the skills so that they’re able to play at the highest level possible. “I’m looking forward to the new challenge. The Saskatchewan Midget Triple Hockey League is a great league, and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to help develop these young athletes,” Weisgerber said. “The AAA league is a good stepping stone for players wanting to move on to junior hockey and our goal is to provide

guidance and structure to enhance their abilities on and off the ice. We look forward to meeting and seeing the new and

returning players play in a few weeks at our spring camp.” Weisgerber will be on the ice with the Moose Jaw Generals when they hold their annual spring camp starting April 5th at Mosaic Place.

Second half surge paces Peacock to city title Toilers hold Briercrest Christian to eight points in second half on way to claiming high school girls basketball championship Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

It’s been a decade of dominance for the Peacock Toilers in the Moose Jaw high school girls basketball league. The Toilers took a 36-28 lead at half, turning it into a 63-32 edge through three quarters and never looked back on their way to an 81-36 victory over Briercrest Christian Academy in front of an always-raucous crowd at Sask Polytech. The city final win was the ninth straight for the Toilers and capped off yet another undefeated season in the local league. “Peacock has such a great basketball program and I’m really proud to be a part of that,” said Peacock’s Megan MacDonald, one of six Grade 12s on this year’s squad.

gether and were able to hold them off.” With their veteran core, the Toilers knew just what they had to do to get the job done. “Any time we had all the Grade 12s on we knew we had a lot of experience out there and that helped us out.” Ingalls said. Ingalls finished the game with 13 points, while Caitlyn Johnson, Emily MacKenzie and Caitlin Miller all had 11 points each. The Cougars were led by Lilly Matthies with 12 points.

“It’s crazy how much it impacts you as a player and person, I’ve made so many memories in this sport and it’s been really nice to play here.” MacDonald had six of her game-high 14 points in the third quarter as Peacock pulled away, a situation that became all the more necessary given how close things were in the first half – the Toilers’ eight-point lead at the break was especially dramatic seeing how the two teams went blow-for-blow in an 18-18 second quarter. “It was good to keep it interesting in the first half, it kept us on our toes, but it was cool to pull away and win it that way,”

McDonald said. “We’ve had slow starts all season but it’s good to come back in them; it makes the end more rewarding when you start slow and come back and win.” Senior guard Piper Ingalls pointed to their defence and quick transition game as a heavy key to their second-half success, something on display as the Toilers held BCA to only four points in each of the final two quarters. “We played a lot harder on defence and we started scoring more, getting it to our posts, and we started shooting way better,” Ingalls said. “It was a little scary [early], but I think we just pulled it to-

Three teams from local high school league advance to Hoopla

Central boys, Caronport and Peacock girls all off to provincial high school basketball championships Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Peacock Toilers and Central Cyclones might have been familiar foes heading into the 4A high school girls basketball regional final, but that didn’t mean the game was going to be any less intense. Heck, there was even a buzzer-beater half-court shot. That put Peacock up by 20 at half. In the 4A high school girls basketball regional final against Central Cyclones, the Peacock Toilers were able to make their lead stick as they went on to 71-40 victory to earn a spot in the Hoopla provincial championship tournament next weekend in Saskatoon. “It’s pretty cool, we went to Hoopla these past three years and for some of the girls four years,” Ingalls said. “It’s going to be a really good experience and I think we’re going to do well.” The third-seed Toilers will take on the second-seed Melfort Comets to open their appearance at Hoopla on Friday.

**** The Toilers were one of three teams to advance to Hoopla on Saturday, with the other two as unsurprising as can be. The top-seeded Central Cyclones picked up right where they left off the previous night in their 127-33 victory over La Loche, putting together another impressive performance on offence while simultaneously shutting down their opponents in their way to a 120-51 win over Saskatoon Bedford Road. Central will face fifth-seed North Battleford John Paul II in their Hoopla opener. It was much the same in the 3A girls regional final, as the first-seed Caronport Cougars rolled to a 96-61 win over Yorkton Sacred Heart after defeating Esterhazy 7933 in their opener. They’ll do battle with Melville in their first game Saturday.

Prairie Hockey Academy winless at CSSHL Elite 15 championship

Cougars fail to score goal in first two contests before losing in a shootout in high-scoring battle Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Prairie Hockey Academy Cougars might not have had a shot at reaching the playoffs in their final game of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League Elite 15 championship tournament, but they weren’t going down without a fight. After being held scoreless their first two games at the event in Penticton, B.C., the Cougars opened up for five goals on their way to a 6-5 shootout loss to Burnaby Winter Club on Saturday night. The Cougars had previously lost 5-0 to Winnipeg’s Rink Hockey Academy and 2-0 to OHA Edmonton.

PHA will finished the tournament with an 0-2-0-1 record in their first trip to the national event.

Caelan Fitzpatrick scored twice for the Cougars, with both his goals coming in the first period. Kirk Mullen also had a pair of goals as PHA led 3-2 after the first and 5-3 through two but couldn’t make their lead stand – Burnaby would eventually tie the game with 1:39 left in regulation. Nathan Airey made 38 saves in goal for Prairie Hockey, including saves on two of the three shooters he faced. Mullen, Ethan Peters and Atley Calvert were all stopped by Burnaby goaltender Tanner Johnson, who made 37 saves overall.

In their opening game, the Cougars found themselves trailing 3-0 after the first period and 4-0 through two. Nathan Airey made 31 saves in the loss, PHA fired 30 at Rink Academy. Things were far closer against Edmonton, as OHA scored with two minutes left in the second period, and that marker would stand as the only of regulation until they added an empty netter with 1:18 left in the game. Chase Coward turned aside 27 shots for the Cougars, PHA had 34 shots on Edmonton.

Moose Jaw competitors pick up 10 medals at wrestling provincials Three gold, six silver among impressive medal haul for local club Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw competitors picked up plenty of hardware at the Sask Wrestling provincial championships in Saskatoon on Saturday. Local wrestlers brought home a total of 10 medals, including three gold and six silver, while putting together a host of impressive performances. Moose Jaw Kinsmen Wrestling Club competitor Connor Rowsell picked up one of the those gold medals in the Cadet (under-17) male 92-kilogram division, as he defeated Zackery Seitz of Regina by fall 1:18 into their firstplace match. Alexis Bradish and Paige Lidberg won gold and silver respectively in the Cadet female 61-kg division, as Bradish defeated Prince Albert’s Tamica Hallett by fall at 21 seconds before taking 18 seconds to defeat Lidberg in their round robin bout. Lidberg went on to defeat Hallett in the closest of matches, taking a 13-12 victory to win silver. Sydnee Christmann didn’t have as much luck in her Cadet female 69-kg division as she lost by fall to Regina’s Makena Ricard to take silver. Tessa Petruic also came away with a silver medal, with a loss to Saskatoon’s Emry Halbgewachs in the Cadet girls 90-kg division in the gold medal match. Competing in the Cadet male 55-ki-

over La Ronge’s Keston Mariniuk in the third-place match. Myra Szabo ended up having the easiest path to a medal, picking up gold in the Juvenile Under-19 female 80-kg division by default. Also competing were Ulrik Tondevold, who went 0-2 in the Cadet male 51-kg class, and Miheret Cridland, who went 0-2 in the Cadet female 53-kg division.

Moose Jaw Kinsmen Wrestling Club competitors at the Sask Wrestling provincials this past weekend included Davin Miller (bronze), Connor Rowsell (gold), Miheret Cridland, Sydnee Christmann (silver), Paige Lidberg (silver), Alexis Bradish (gold) and Liam Vargo (silver).

logram division, Liam Vargo bounced back from a tough weekend at SHSAA provincials by posting a 1-1 record and claiming silver. Vargo defeated Regina Cattown’s Elliott Blackwill by fall at 51 seconds but dropped a 12-4 decision to Prince Albert’s Donovan Neudorf in his round robin tournament. Moose Jaw’s Kyle Yamniuk, competing for Regina Advanced Wrestling, took silver in the Cadet male 60-kg glass. He was leading Saskatoon’s Griffin Stewart early in his match be-

fore a head injury lead to Stewart winning by fall at 3:08. Dylan Yamniuk had a little more luck in his Juvenile (under-19) male 71-kg class, as he split his two round robin matches to pick up silver. Yamniuk defeated Meadow Lake’s Gabriel Regnier 12-1 but lost by fall to Swift Current’ Sebastian Marchand. Davin Miller lost his opening match in the Cadet male 65-kg class but won back-to-back bouts on the ‘B’ side to win bronze, taking a decision victory

Kyle Yamniuk was a little worse for the wear after suffering a cut while winning silver, while Dylan Yamniuk also finished second wrestling for Regina Advanced Wrestling.

Jordison, Barker to play for Original 16 Cash League title

Jays won’t strike fear into A.L. Opponents

Plenty of extra end games as championship and consolation finalists decided Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The finalists are set in the Original 16 Cash League, and once again it’s a couple of familiar faces. Seaborn Insurance (Joel Jordison, 16-1) needed an extra end to take a 7-6 win over Easy Care Living (Lorraine Arguin, 12-5) while BTN Chartered Accountants (Penny Barker, 13-4) also needed a late rally to get past Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais, 7-10) in their semifinal. For Jordison, it was all about the late-game steals: with the game tied 4-4 through five ends, Arguin stole two to take control heading into the final two frames. Jordison would get one back in the seventh, though, and steal a single point in the eighth to tie things 6-6 before stealing another in the extra end to take the win. Barker pulled off just as impressive a comeback, as trailing 6-4 after six ends she used the hammer to rack up three in the seventh and then stole two more in the final end to take a 9-6 victory. Things were just as close in the consolation semifinals, where Protec Video (Wade Gray, 9-8) needed an extra end to take a 7-6 win over EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 8-9) and John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 12-5) scored one in an extra frame to down Tax Team (Murray Stroeder, 10-7) 5-4. The championship and consolation finals are set for next Wednesday at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.

By Bruce Penton brucepenton2003@yahoo.ca The clocks have sprung ahead, the NHL playoffs won’t begin for another three weeks or so, but it’s baseball season, so buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack and take me out to the ballgame. Major League Baseball has its earliest start ever, with the 162-game regular season kicking off March 28, not counting two games in Japan March 20-21 featuring Oakland and Seattle. Canadians, of course, get excited about the Toronto Blue Jays, who are starting the season with a new manager, Charlie Montoyo, who replaces John Gibbons. Montoyo could use some new pitchers, too, but the Jays didn’t do much in the off-season to address their mound situation. Marcus Stroman is hoping to rebound from a 4-9 injury-riddled 2018, and he’ll pitch opening day against the visiting Detroit Tigers. After him, the Jays staff is suspect. J. A. Happ (106) was the only Toronto pitcher to reach double figures in wins last year, but he’s wearing pinstripes in New York this year after a late-July trade last season. Free agent signee Matt Shoemaker, 40-32 in six seasons with the Angels, is slated to be the Jays’ second-game starter. The rotation of Stroman, Shoemaker, injury prone Aaron Sanchez and perhaps Ryan Borucki won’t instill fear in opponents. Jays fans, however, will have lots to cheer for as soon as the can’tmiss kid (he’d better not miss) Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., joins the big-league

Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “Japanese startup Vaak claims it has developed artificial-intelligence software that identifies shoplifters — based on their body language — before they actually steal. Mariners opponents plan to test it out on Dee Gordon this season.� Brad Rock of Salt Lake City’s Deseret News, on the man who is suing the AAF because he says it was his idea: “Considering the history of other startup football leagues, he may want to keep a low profile on that.�

Dwight Perry again: “Best bet to score a bloated NFL contract this fall? Ex-LSU cornerback Greedy Williams.â€? Remembering the late, great sportswriter Dan Jenkins, on the Winter Olympics (without the expletive): “Cross-country skiing’s not a sport, it’s how a (‌) Swede goes to the 7-Eleven.â€? Texas buddy Jim Mackey, posting a Facebook photo of a man with a ‘O-for-4’ licence plate on his truck: “I asked this guy if it stood for failed marriages. He said worse... he is a Buffalo Bills fan!â€? Brad Rock again: “ESPN’s Jessica Mendoza has been hired by the New York Mets as an operations adviser. She will be allowed to keep both positions, despite an apparent conflict of interest. In response, the Yankees allegedly are looking to hire umpire Chad Fairchild as the team’s hitting instructor.â€? Comedy writer Alex Kaseberg: “Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 to have their two daughters admitted to USC as rowers. And now they’re all up a certain proverbial creek without a paddle.â€? RJ Currie of sportsdeke.com: “Struggling tennis star Eugenie Bouchard’s Twitter date from losing an ill-considered Super Bowl bet is reportedly being made into a romcom. Possible titles include I Dream of Genie, Backhand to the Future and Blunder Woman.â€? Currie again, with a bit of a stinker: “The Toronto Argonauts signed defensive tackle Cory “Poopâ€? Johnson. Might be the first CFL lineman to wear No. 2.â€? Perry again: “Q: How do MLB apologists try to spin it when a player vanishes for half a season because of a marijuana suspension? A: Tommy Chong surgery.â€? Care to comment? Email brucepenton2003@yahoo.ca

club in late April. Fellow phenom Bo Bichette may also rise from the minors after a terrific spring at the plate. Around the Big Leagues, eyes will be focused on Philadelphia, where Bryce Harper joined the Phillies with a $330 million 13-year contract, and San Diego, where Manny Machado signed with the Padres for $300 million over 10 years. The Yankees, who belted a record 267 home runs last year, could exceed that mark this year, and probably win the A.L. East over defending Series champion Boston Red Sox. The Sox will likely be without closer Craig Kimbrel (who as a free agent still hadn’t found a new home as of press time). Houston Astros, led by the diminutive Jose Altuve, are still going to be powerful, and the Dodgers will once again contend in the National League, proving once again that money not only talks, it wins. Mike Trout of the Angels remains the game’s best player and fans in Atlanta will be anticipating more heroics from Ronald Acuna, Jr., last year’s rookie of the year. The beer will be cold, the hot dogs reasonably warm and the popcorn salty, and games will drag on despite efforts by Commissioner Rob Manfred to speed things up. But to baseball fans, it won’t matter. Baseball’s back and for real fans, it’s always a hit.

of life.” Such support is important to the Right to Life group, as their mission is to protect the dignity and life of everyone, at all stages of life — from conception to natural death. With euthanasia and MAID having been made legal in Saskatchewan in 2016, Landry and the Right to Life group hope to provide support to people who are affected by loneliness and feeling like a burden. “We feel that people really need to know that they’re loved. The whole program, I think, kind of sums that up in that it’s not so much about what you say or don’t say to them, but just that you’re there for them,” said Landry. “Your presence is so important to people, to know that they are valued. . . by helping them restore their dignity in a sense, making them feel special even at this time, and that they’re not a burden.” Interest in another Dying Healed seminar in Moose Jaw can be directed towards Jean Landry, at 306-694-4111, which is also where people can call to purchase tickets for the upcoming banquet.

BrainLove is a campaign to encourage public awareness of how important it is to make the health and safety of their brains a priority. The campaign not only raises Brain Health awareness, but also fundraises for educational programs and was initiated by a partnership forged by two provincial organizations, Saskatchewan Brain Injury Assoc. and Saskatchewan Royal Purple Assoc.

None of us wants to raise a human no one likes being around. We’ve all been there... imagine the grocery store scenario when the infamous temper tantrum emerges when we’ve just said “no� to our mini prince or princess. Shame on us as parents for allowing a melt-down in Superstore. How dare we not give in to what our sweet-little-something wants? How dare we say “no?� To avoid further embarrassment, we finally do give in, only to reinforce the fact that a temper tantrum will result in the child getting their way. Human behavior dictates what type of behavior works to get our way and children are quick to find out what works and what doesn’t. Unfortunately, this will carry forth into adulthood if not put into check. There are several clues we can look for in order to determine whether or not we are raising an “entitled� child. Do we reward for good behavior? Are our children selfish? Do we “bail� them out of their problems? Do they like to get not only their way but also their wants? Do they dishonor their parents and anyone else in authority? Do they lack resilience or persistence to do the hard things, and eventually become angry and demanding? Upon reflection, I have come to the realization that we, as parents are the ones at fault. I admit it: I’ve enabled my children to live entitled lives to some degree. I started putting my foot down later than I should’ve but thankfully, God is merciful and helps us in our weakness as parents. As I shared last week, we have to learn to navigate through the cultural sea that’s all around us. It is not always a popular thing to go against the grain but the results are peaceable and blessed. How can a generation be raised that is kind, thoughtful, respectful, hard-working and honest? It will require changes... and change can be hard but we must persevere to bring results. Don’t be overwhelmed by the task ahead. One adjustment at a time will begin to turn the whole ship! “When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go.� James 3:3&4 It is not our job to be our child’s friend; our job is to train them up in order for them to have the tools they need to leave home and contribute to society when they do, desiring that they would be empathetic, community-minded individuals with a solid work ethic and a sense of personal responsibility. We may find that holding our children accountable for their actions won’t be pretty in the moment but it will work over time. If we adopt the attitude that we love them too much to leave them to their own selfish ambitions, it will help to set them on a course to be successful contributors in their own families, specifically and to their communities in general. As parents, we must be confident to go against the norm; to not take the easy way out. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.� Proverbs 22:6 Next week, we’ll look at specifics of how to train our children to not expect hand outs and to take responsibility for their lives and the community around them.

Tolmie assures residents procedures being followed in noise complaint issue City administration working on report regarding mixed-use commercial and residential districts and potential issues for neighbouring properties Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

The ongoing controversy surrounding a dispute between a business owner and surrounding residents has reached the point that Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie has weighed into assure citizens the proper procedures are being followed. The issue comes out of a noise complaint directed toward a local establishment, where residents allege a constant stream of loud music and pounding bass has made their lives unpleasant. Coun. Dawn Luhning brought forward a notice of motion during the Mar. 11 meeting of city council “that City Administration prepare a report to Executive Committee to

re-evaluate the issuance of a Business License for areas of the City where mixed use in the Commercial District and others could be an issue for neighbouring properties.� Tolmie pointed out in a press release that the matter is currently going through the legal system, but has exposed the fact “that we do not have a current bylaw that addresses activity in mixed use (business/residential) buildings�. With the city’s 2017 Downtown Local Area Plan bringing the potential for more residential development in the commercial district, Tolmie said the need for a bylaw to address such issues is more pertinent than ever.

“For our City to grow, and for business owners and residents to co-exist comfortably and with peace of mind, it’s our job to ensure we have clearly defined guidelines in place,� Tolmie said. “We look forward to City Administration’s report on the proper way to move forward in the best interests of the City of Moose Jaw.� The report and any potential action will be brought forward to an executive meeting in the near future, with council to finalize any decisions made shortly after.

Farm Safety top of mind everyday

March 10-16 was Agricultural Safety Week in the province, so it might be a good time to read up on safety guidelines. By Larissa Kurz

Although last week was Agricultural Safety Week reminding everyone to be safe and diligent when at work in the farm yard, safety on the farm should be top of mind everyday. Agriculture remains one of the most hazardous occupations in Saskatchewan, and the upcoming seeding and harvest seasons often see an increase in incidents. There are reportedly 13 people killed on Saskatchewan farms every year, and 75% of those fatalities involve some type of vehicle or machinery.

Some easy recommendations for safety around the yard include making sure to get enough rest and to take proper breaks when working, to install guards and shields on machinery immediately after maintenance, to watch for overhead lines when moving machinery or bins, and to store and use chemicals properly and in safe conditions. It is also encouraged to make sure that all employees and workers have proper training and knowledge of a task before attempting it and to have a safety plan in place in the event

of an emergency — it can be an important thing to know where first aid, fire, and emergency supplies are, and how to use them. As the nature of farming often combines the workplace and the home for many people, it’s also important to make sure youth and children are protected. Of all serious injuries reported on the farm yard, 14% involve youth, and half of all youth fatalities on the farm are caused by machinery or vehicles. The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute suggests making sure that your children know

where dangerous areas are — like dugouts, livestock pens, moving machinery. Often youth are involved in helping with work, and so giving them age-appropriate tasks and instruction before sending them to work can help reduce the chance of injury. More information can be found on the Farm Safety page of the government of Saskatchewan’s website, which includes a link to the Farm Safety Guide.
