After a year away, Motif will be back to celebrate Moose Jaw’s diverse local community. The Motif Multicultural Festival will return from July 12-14 at Happy Valley Park. The annual event took a year’s hiatus when organizers found that it was “not economically and administratively feasible to hold the event” in 2018. “They missed it last year and we did too. We had a few tears over it,” said Mary Tkach Vangsnes, a director with Motif Moose Jaw Multicultural Festival Inc. The Motif directors have been hitting the pavement to get the word out and also canvass the local business community looking for support in the form of being willing to volunteer or sponsor. “We’ve been going around to local businesses looking for support,” said Gerry Wadsworth, who is also a director with Motif.
“They missed it last year and we did too. We had a few tears over it,” - Mary Tkach Vangsnes, Motif Moose Jaw Multicultural Festival Inc.
“This is the first time we’ve had to ask,” Tkach Vangsnes said. “We’ve always had just enough funds to cover us with some additional funding that we got a little later, but since we didn’t finish off so well last year we have to do a little thinking. We’re hoping some local businesses can help support us or help us with volunteerism; get some volunteers to help with some of the jobs that we have, that way they can partake and enjoy the festival.” The Motif organizers are expecting to
add two or three new groups this year that have come forward and expressed interest. The event features food, dance, art and music from various groups representing different ethnic communities. “It’s easily accessible and we’re hoping that some of the old folks have a chance to come down too because it is local. It’s not like you have to drive out of town,” Tkach Vangsnes said. “It’s not like Regina where you have to drive from this place to that place,” Wadsworth said. “It’s in one place. It’s outdoors and nature usually cooperates.” Motif is hiring a festival co-ordinator to help run the event and have posted the position on the Saskjobs site. “Some of the applicants have submitted their resumes and we’re hoping for some more,” Tkach Vangsnes said.

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget announcements have been good news for families and youth in Moose Jaw. The investments announced show Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to supporting families and children, those who will determine the future of our province. The Government of Saskatchewan is continuing to support Saskatchewan students by increasing funding for classrooms and for new schools. This budget includes $1.9 billion in K-12 operating funding for Saskatchewan school divisions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a $26.2 million increase over last year. Education capital funding is also up by $20 million this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to $95.6 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while the Education Property Tax Rate remains unchanged. The announcement of a new school for Moose Jaw is very welcome and exciting. It is apparent that there is a need to replace aging Public and Catholic Elementary schools on the south side of our city. Funding in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget will start the design process for a consolidated Public and Catholic jointuse school that will replace Empire, Westmount, St. Mary and Sacred Heart Schools. The collaboration of Public and Catholic School Boards, school administration and government has set out the path to enhancing learning opportunities for students. There has been other good news for Moose Jaw families in the past month. Moose Jaw is one of seven Saskatchewan communities to open a new Family Resource Centre. Early Years Family Resource Centres provide a place where families with young children can access reliable information, services and supports to help them raise healthy children. There could also be interactive activities for babies
and toddlers, and support groups where young parents can share their experiences with others and seek advice. The centre will provide families in our community with a welcoming environment where they can play and learn. These new Centres are expected to open as early as this fall. The provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Early Learning Intensive Support (ELIS) pilot program will be expanding from the two original locations of Regina and Saskatoon to five additional communities; Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Prince Albert, Swift Current and Yorkton. It will allow school divisions to provide additional supports for children with intensive needs attending Prekindergarten programs. This includes hiring additional educational assistants and bringing in specialized resources. Once this expansion is completed, it will bring the number of available spots for preschoolers with intensive needs from 109 to 170. Nearly 130 more licensed child care centre spaces have been allocated across the province as of March 7th. Twenty-three of those spaces will be at Northwest Child Development Centre Inc. in Moose Jaw. With the addition of these spaces, the government will have allocated funding for 7,116 new spaces since 2007 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a 76 per cent increase in the number of spaces in that time. Funding for the Early Years Family Resource Centres, the Early Learning Intensive Support Program, and the new child care spaces is part of the Canada-Saskatchewan Early Learning and Child Care Agreement. It is Social Work Week in Saskatchewan as I prepare this column. Social workers are on the front line in providing supports to children and families. They fill a vital role in meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in our province. Social workers can be found in public and private practice; in health, education, justice and child welfare, and community-based organizations; working in policy, planning and administration. Thank you to those dedicated individuals who provide these very important services in our community.

Turning phosphate deposit into mine could generate large capital gains Development of phosphate fertilizer mine capacity is among the range of investment opportunities presented by the fertilizer industry. Phosphate fertilizer, along with nitrogen and potash, are the three key inputs needed by farmers to supply a growing world population with food. Eleven years ago phosphate fertilizer prices moved into the stratosphere at $400 a tonne, as future mine supplies seemed short. High prices tend to solve low supply issues. New supply of three million tonnes a year from North Africa and the Middle East, which account for 70 per cent of global supply, has brought American prices into the $250 to $300 tonne US range. Mosaic, one of the big North American phosphate producers, idled three million tonnes production recently and will decide this year whether to put the Florida mines back into operation. Into this scenario, Arianne Phosphate of Quebec plans to build a $1.2 billion open pit mine/mill and port in Quebec with first commercial production planned for 2022. Formed in 1997 Arianne began $45 million expenditures on the deposit 200 km north of Saguenay in 2008, when
phosphate users were desperate for new supply. During the ensuing 11 years, Arianne has developed over one billion tonnes of resources with a feasibility study in 2015 that laid out project viability. Cash operating cost per tonne in 2015 of $93US a tonne, one of the lowest in the industry, offers a nice margin at last year’s phosphate price range of $250 to $300 a tonne. Another advantage for the Lac A Paul mine will be freight costs. The feasibility study outlined freight costs from the Saguenay River port to major markets varied from $11 to $14 a tonne, with the exception in India where freight is $35 a tonne. The $1.2 billion mine cost includes development of the river port to take product from trucks. In 2018 Arianne took a number of key steps toward production. An agreement was signed with the first two off-take partners for sales from the mine. Off-take sales agreements are critical to financing, both for debt and equity. A decision was obtained allowing construction of the river port. A partnership was made with the Province of New Brunswick to work on development of a phosphoric acid plant, reducing company reliance on fertilizer markets.
Grants from mining-friendly Quebec allow research to develop aluminum trailers to haul the product to port. The company is set for development of this resource into a wealth-building project with 26 years life, perhaps longer if more reserves are revealed on the large property lease. Plenty can go wrong before the mine pumps out the first cash flow. Financing the $1.2 billion mine is the biggest obstacle. Capital requirements will see a need for about $400 million equity and $800 million debt. Most likely, Arianne will find a partner to build the mine. World prices and potential new supply could erode profit margins. For an investor with a long-term horizon, buying shares of Arianne, currently 40 cents, could turn into elephant-sized gains. Risk over the next four years is also gigantic. CAUTION: Remember when investing, consult your adviser and do your homework before buying any security. Bizworld does not recommend investments.

Sukanen collectibles show: from vinyl records to cast iron circus trucks By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express Photos by Ron Walter
Circus truck The Sukanen Ship Museum antiques and collectibles show began with a long line of viewers and buyers waiting at the door to be first at the event. During both days many buyers left clutching treasured purchases in their arms. Non-buyers often told ticket takers as they left: “It was worth it.” George Chopping of Old George’s Antiques in Whitewood
was happy. “I usually buy more than I sell,“ he said partway through day one. “I’ve paid for my tables and my half of the hotel room.” An Emerald Park vendor of long-playing vinyl records gave a thumbs up when asked about the show. “I’ve been here seven years,” he said. “It’s a good show. My first year there was a bit of interest in vinyl. The next year a bit more and now it’s exploded.” Buyers prefer the vinyl sound quality to digital sound and want artists from their younger days. “I can’t keep enough Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac or the Dark Side on hand.” Nor can he keep enough Waylon Jennings or Johnny Cash records in his 8,000 record inventory. The yellow cast iron Overland Circus truck stood out on David Gisi’s tables, one of two trucks he bought at a Medicine Hat auction sale about 15 years ago. “It’s a circus truck. A polar bear goes inside. I have no idea who made it. I think it’s from the 1920s.” His truck was priced at $120. The same item is listed on eBay for $809US. The Medicine Hat resident said he is getting rid of nearly 30 years of collecting to move into a condo. “I got tired of cutting the grass.” He has been “in and out” of collecting since 1972 when his first purchase was a treadle sewing machine. His garage is pretty well cleaned out but
Mickey Gisi still has a catalogued collection of 4,400 ball point pens with another 1,000 to catalogue to sell. And there’s the pop bottle collection – all 405. “In ’82 I bought a bunch of pop bottles from the Waldeck antique store when three ladies had it and that’s how I got
Old George kicked off on pop bottles.” “I’m selling stuff but not fast enough.” Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

A few nuggets of gardening information that you may not have already heard compliments of the internet https:// www.goodhousekeeping. com/home/gardening/tips/ a32232/surprising-gardening-facts/ A sunflower is not just one flower. Both the fuzzy brown center and the classic yellow petals are actually 1,000 – 2,000 Joan Ritchie individual flowers, held toEDITOR gether on a single stalk. There are more microorganisms in one teaspoon of soil than there are people on earth. It’s aliiiiive! OK, in all seriousness, that fact might make you itchy, but microbes are important for keeping your soil full of nutrients. Plants really do respond to sound. Talking to plants to help them grow is a well-known old wives’ tale, but studies have shown vibration (like music, or perhaps even the sweet sound of your voice) can affect plant growth.. Butterflies might be more attracted to your weeds than your flowers. Colorful blooms aren’t the chief reason these insects love your garden – it’s more about the fragrance and nectar. According to the Smithsonian Institute, new cultivars of popular flowers have been bred for enhanced color and size, but have often lost their fragrance in the process. So everyday weeds, like dandelions and clovers, might actually be the most appealing things in your yard to butterflies (they hate pesticides, too). A little baking soda can help you grow sweeter tomatoes. A regular sprinkling of this kitchen staple into your plant’s soil can help reduce acidity, which sweetens up your crop. Some of your favorite fruits are actually in the rose family. Apples, pears, peaches, cherries, raspberries, strawberries, and more are rosaceae, making them cousins to the long-stemmed Valentine’s Day variety. The right orchid combination can smell like your favorite dessert. Did you know that the vanilla bean comes from a orchid varietal? And it’s not the only sweet-smelling kind: “An oncidum hyrbrid called Sharry Baby smells like chocolate,” says George Hatfield, president of the Santa Barbara Orchid Show. “It’s ‘baking cookie’ aroma has made it a winner.” And that’s not all: The cymbidium Golden Elf smells lemony, and the phalaenopsis violacea has a cinnamon scent. “Just like you’d combine Jelly Belly beans to create new flavors, you can combine orchids to create a garden that smells like a dessert buffet,” says Hatfield. You can change a hydrangea’s color by altering the pH level of the soil. A more alkaline soil will result in pinker blooms, while more acidity will produce blue blooms. To coax your plant to the blue side, add more organic matter to your soil, like egg shells and coffee grounds (though the acidity in used coffee grounds can vary greatly, so you might try a high-acid fertilizer, too). The change won’t happen overnight, but eventually you should succeed in manipulating your soil’s pH level.

Taxis won’t be mandated to charge extra fee to support special needs transportation By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter
City council will not force the taxi industry to add an extra seven cents onto every ride, even if doing so would generate funds to purchase equipment for residents with disabilities. The special needs advisory committee does not believe the current draft bylaw for taxis and ride-hailing adequately addresses the needs of citizens with special needs, or offers them enough protection, explained Coun. Scott McMann, a representative on the committee. This is why the committee – using similar requirements from the City of Regina – suggested charging an additional fee per trip for taxis or ride-hailing. The money would go toward either the municipality purchasing special needs equipment or providing an incentive for companies to get into the market. “We feel additional oversight in this industry should be considered,” McMann told city council during its March 25 meeting. However, city council did not share that view. Council voted 6-1 against a motion to have the City of Moose Jaw’s taxi and ride-hailing bylaw include a requirement of an accessibility fee that the municipality would collect, to offset the purchase of accessible vehicles and/ or special needs transit. McMann was the only councillor in favour. The Government of Saskatchewan has passed legislation prohibiting any ride-hailing organization from operating unless authorized by a city bylaw, explained city solicitor/city clerk Myron Gulka-Tiechko. The City of Moose Jaw needs to have a bylaw in place for a company to operate here. Regina has had a taxi bylaw for years and sets how much taxis charge, he continued. That municipality sets a limit on the number of taxis and closely regulates that industry. A fee of seven cents per ride is based on fair market value. While Coun. Crystal Froese appreciated the intent of the motion, she wondered how administration would collect the money and how much in total it would collect. She noted a certain amount would have to be used for administering the actual fee. Furthermore, companies such as Uber use different drivers; she thought it would be difficult to collect the money from so many drivers. “I (also) think of Skip the Dishes and the number of drivers they have … ,” she added. “It would be cumbersome.” This would be unchartered territory, since – until a bylaw is in place – administration would have no idea what the volume of riders would be or even revenues,

said Gulka-Tiechko. In comparison, since Regina has had a bylaw in place for years, it requires taxi companies to record the number of riders and the amount of money collected. Coun. Brian Swanson was not in favour of implementing a bylaw to regulate the taxi industry, as he thought that was too much government intervention. He wished the committee luck in pursuing special needs transit service, even though he knew it has hit roadblocks before. “I believe there are sufficient provincial regulations in place,” Swanson said. “For city hall to get into it, we are just expanding the scope of city hall into places we shouldn’t be at great expense.” If 1,000 residents took special needs transit per day, that would generate $70 per day with the extra seven cents tacked on, he pointed out. The bureaucracy created at city hall to oversee such a program would swallow up that revenue easily. “Even if we doubled it to 14 cents, it would still be a money-losing proposition,” Swanson added. Coun. Dawn Luhning wanted to see council make this process as easy as possible for residents. She didn’t think councillors should be worried that companies such as Uber or Lyft don’t have established track records. “I’ve said it before: this is the way the world is moving,” she added. “People want to order a ride on their phone. I understand the needs of the special needs committee, but I’m not in favour of this … There is just too much red tape to get (through) here.” The next city council meeting is Monday, April 8.
City administration to pursue titles of properties in tax arrears By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter
Taxes have not been paid on 115 properties throughout Moose Jaw, which means city administration is taking the next step in the tax enforcement process by applying for the property titles. This is an annual process initiated against property owners whose taxes remain unpaid or in arrears as of Jan. 1 of the year following the tax levy, explained Brian Acker, director of financial services, during city council’s March 25 meeting. This application for title relates to liens placed on properties whose owners failed to pay taxes in 2018. The general process begins with an advertisement in the Moose Jaw Express listing all properties that have tax arrears greater than 50 per cent of the previous year’s tax levy. If the property taxes remain unpaid, tax
liens are registered against the advertised properties. The municipality can pursue the property title if the arrears have not been paid after six months. There are 115 properties in arrears this year, compared to 112 last year, Acker said. However, once all steps in the tax enforcement process are completed, the municipality usually takes title of only one or two properties. The value of these 115 properties is $999,492.67. In comparison, the value of the 112 properties in arrears last year was roughly $660,000. The amount of taxes property owners owe ranges from $2,201.50 on Duffield Street to $248,806.45 on Main Street. “An increase of 50 per cent in one year should be of concern,” said Coun. Brian Swanson. “And not only of concern, but it should be reflected in our management of finances.” City council is being aggressive in bringing jobs to Moose Jaw, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. The amount of properties in arrears is reflect of a stagnant economy; however, the municipality is making changes to combat this economic downtown. City council then approved a recommendation to authorize city administration to take the next step in the tax enforcement process by pursuing the title of properties in arrears. The next city council meeting is Monday, April 8.

Sask. Poly alum shares success story at Indigenous honours ceremony Matthew Gourlie
By her own admission, Cassandra Kowalchuk was lost when she arrived at the Moose Jaw campus of Saskatchewan Polytechnic. However, she found her path at the school and earned her diploma and continued her education beyond Sask. Poly. Now she is starting her own business in her hometown of Canora. In Kowalchuk’s eyes, her success wouldn’t have been possible without the work of the Indigenous Services at Sask. Poly. “Indigenous Services literally changed my life here at Saskatchewan Polytechnic,” Kowalchuk said. “They made sure that I succeeded every single day. And on those days when I was ready to walk out of this building and throw it all away, they didn’t let me. It’s an empowering thing to be part of the community here.” Kowalchuk was the keynote speaker at Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Indigenous honour ceremony on March 19. “You’re all in this room here for a reason. You are here because you want to further your life,” Kowalchuk said to the students. Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Moose Jaw campus honored 22 students. It was one of four honour ceremonies that were hosted across the province to celebrate the hard work, dedication and achievements of Sask. Poly’s Indigenous students. Sask. Polytech has been hosting Indigenous honour ceremonies since 1990 and said that more than 19 per cent of their student population identifies as Indigenous. Kowalchuk is of Sioux, Assiniboine and Cree ancestry and is from the White Bear First Nation. However, she didn’t grow up with traditional Indigenous cultural values and teaching. “I didn’t have a very strong educational background. I had dropped out of high school. I had moved quite a bit. I had no traditional family,” said Kowalchuk. “My mother is a product of the 1960s scoop and she had a very difficult life as a single mother. She was taken away from her traditional family and as a result, me and my sister were very confused about who we were, where we came from and what direction to drive ourselves towards in the world.” Feeling lost, she took some advice and looked at the Sask. Polytech website. She wrote down all of the programs that interested her and chose one at random. It was Geomatics Engineering Technology. Before she could begin that program she had to complete her high school education. “I thought I have nothing left to lose,” she said. “I had to step back 10 years and swallow my pride and say ‘I can do this.’ “I didn’t know anybody. I didn’t have the support of many people. When I told (my friends) I was going back to school, they laughed and said ‘oh, you think you’re better than us?’ and I didn’t say anything. I just laughed, but to myself, I thought: ‘I’m not better than anybody, but I can be better than who I am right now. I can better myself for the future. I can make a difference in my life and maybe

many opportunities, I’ve had job opportunities, speaking opportunities. I’ve had a chance to go back to my own community — that I didn’t even know, that I didn’t even realize I was a part of because we were taken away so soon in our lives,” Kowalchuk said. She left the students with a message to lift each other up and be engaged in each other’s learning. “Be supportive of each other and be interested in what we’re trying to achieve. Ask what they learned about and what they’re excited about,” Kowalchuk said. “Any time you are feeling down, step back, take a breath and take a look at the people who are here for you. You are very supported. “We’re showing that we have a purpose and that we can go forth and we can be successful.”

Matthew Gourlie photograph in somebody else’s.’” She would achieve all of her academic dreams, but she didn’t do it alone. She said when she started school she was feeling terrified, anxious and lost. However, in her first class in her first week on campus, her instructor put a letter on her desk. She was surprised and confused to receive it, but opened it and found it was from Rosemarie Zaba Stewart, Indigenous Student Advisor, at Sask. Polytech. The letter welcomed her and told her that they were there for her and wanted her to succeed. “It took me a little while, but I finally made my way down to Rosemarie’s office and I introduced myself and she said ‘I know who you are!’” Kowalchuk said. “That changed the direction of my life here at Sask. Polytech. It made the difference. It made me realize that I could go back to my roots and I could be a traditional person. I could succeed past what anybody ever expected of me or what anyone ever believed from me. “My life really, really changed when I made the decision to come to Sask. 11 LB Box Polytech.” Kowalchuk graduated from the Geomatics Engineering Technology program in 4KG BOX 2014 at the age of 29.

Model rail show draws plenty of enthusiasts over two days By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express
The parking lot at the Western Development Museum was overcrowded for most of the annual two-day Model Railroad Show. Crowds, eager to forget the last weeks of winters, thronged the museum of transportation to view exhibits from Alberta and Saskatchewan model railroad clubs with enthusiasts from Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Martensville displaying their intricate realistic backgrounds beside the rail tracks and trains. A new feature this year was a train display where youngsters, and old youngsters, could try their hand at the remote controls of a model rail train. In the museum aircraft section a miniature locomotive allowed youngsters to crawl in and get the feel of a locomotive engineer’s work. The show included displays of Lego-built models and a radio-controlled aircraft club display.

Mac’s makeover soon to get green light By Larissa Kurz
CALL TODAY - THESE PRICES WON’T LAST LONG! Prices in Effect Until April 20, 2019
firstname.lastname@example.org 32 Manitoba St W Moose Jaw, SK
The process of building Mac the Moose’s new rack has begun. Last week, a few holes were bored into Mac’s belly and near his antlers to determine whether he would be able to take the weight of his new, larger rack. Bryson from Steady Metal Works and Ory from Concentric Engineering crawled into Mac’s insides and checked the structural integrity of his frame, and executive director of Tourism Moose Jaw Jacki L’Heureux-Mason hopes to have the results by the week’s end, along with a timeline of the work. The rack is being sculpted by Rion White from Orion Taxidermy Ltd. and will be mirroring a rack from a moose in the Yukon, the size of which brings the accurate term “megafauna” back to mind. Sask Polytech has done 3D renderings to aid the process, and an engineer from Saskatoon has volunteered to give advice on the project. With the structure being checked currently, the next issue that needs tackling is wind resistance, as placing the antlers properly will affect both safety and noise reduction. Mac’s makeover currently includes a larger rack and a new coat of paint to give him that “new moose” vibe, as he’ll be painted a darker, more realistic brown thanks to Cork King and Sask Eco Coatings. Strictly
Mac’s open-belly surgery will determine the state of his structure. Fences will also be repairing the fence that surrounds Mac’s bit of land. The cost of Mac’s upgrades was estimated to be around $50,000, but L’Heureux-Mason says the outpouring of donations — not only monetary but of labour and materials from the community has covered an enormous portion of the project. “It’s Moose Jaw, notoriously Moose Jaw; I love it,” said L’Heureux-Mason about the support Mac has received. Support from Moosehead Breweries has made headlines, but there has also been a huge amount of local support: Moose Jaw Co-op, Murray GM, Western Automotive Group, Temple Gardens Mineral Spa, Little Chicago Entertainment, and Sycamore Energy, to name a few. Mac’s GoFundMe is still open for donations and the Tourism office says they are still receiving donations from local businesses.

Vanier class donates special ‘swag bags’ to Street Cuts Barber for homeless
Christian Action Project sees students put together hygiene bags filled with toiletries, variety of items for those in need Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
A Vanier Collegiate class project with an interesting twist will aim to help local homeless people – and they’re going through a rather unique avenue to do so. Students in teacher Karen Jordan’s Christian Studies class decided to use their Christian Action Plan to put together special hygiene bags filled with various sundries designed to make life better for those in need. That’s not necessarily a unique idea, but the way they’re getting the bags to their intended targets is. The class chose to donate the bags to Jason Gauthier, also known as the Street Cuts Barber, so he can give them to his clients when he holds his regular free haircut events for the homeless. “We decided that we really liked what he was doing and we wanted to help him carry out his cause,” Jordan said. “So throughout the whole year so far they’ve been collecting donations from businesses in the city, and this is what it resulted in.” The project saw students compile the bags – which include toothpaste and toothbrushes, socks, deodorant, floss and various other items – by seeking dona-
Vanier students show off their ‘swag bags’ they donated to Jason Gauthier, aka the Street Cuts Barber. tions from businesses throughout the city. “They conquered a lot of fears of going to different businesses in person and shaking some hands, calling on the phone to a lot of businesses, and the support we got from the community was very overwhelming,” Jordan said. “They went above and beyond to help us out and see what they could do.” The end result was 100 bags filled with
products, as well as two massive boxes of leftovers so Gauthier can continue things once the current run of bags is complete. And as you can imagine, he plans to make sure that happens. “I love this! Honestly, this came out of the blue and I really appreciate Karen and all the kids; they’ve been working on it since September and it’s such an amazing thing,” Gauthier said. “We hold events
and cut hair for the less fortunate and this is going to go to help those guys.” The swag bags will make their debut at Street Cut Barber’s hair cut event at Victory Church as well as one Gauthier plans to hold at Carmichael Outreach in Regina. Seeing the project come to fruition with such impressive results has Jordan hoping to see more in the future. “We didn’t know what it was going to look like at first, and some of the kids thought it would be too difficult to do, that we couldn’t pull it off,” Jordan said. “But I’ve never seen such a passion for a project; once I gave control to them and said ‘what are you going to do, how are you going to help the community’, they really went above and beyond in making it happen. “So I can’t tell you enough how proud I am of them. It really brings a passion to teaching when you get this type of students who are so passionate about giving back… it’s pretty amazing that we can live out our faith and help people in the community while showing students that it’s all about being a good person.”

Heartland Hospice thankful for community support Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
It was exciting to organize Heartland Hospice’s inaugural fundraiser since everyone who was asked to participate immediately jumped on board to help. “The generosity is really overwhelming,” said Della Ferguson, a board member with Heartland Hospice and co-organizer of the fundraiser, An Evening of Love, Hope, Faith and Resilience. “The other side of it too, was how many people — as we were preparing for this — shared their story of their loved one’s passing. They expressed a desire that we have a hospice in the community.” Hospice service is specialized care provided at the end of someone’s life that accompanies the natural process of death, Ferguson explained. It provides comfort to patients and their families in a profound way. Heartland Hospice held its inspirational fundraiser on March 28 at the Mae Wilson Theatre. It featured Yorkton couple Greg and Leone Ottenbreit as the guest speak-

They shared how their deep faith in Jesus Christ helped them find the strength to continue functioning when their fiveyear-old son was diagnosed with cancer, and later died from it. The evening also featured a short video of now-deceased resident Arlene Kolosky discussing the need for a dedicated hospice building in Moose Jaw; a silent auction; Hors d’oeuvres; jazz music; and a testimonial from the Ackerman family about how a deceased family member used the hospice’s services. There was also an original song performed on guitar by singer-songwriter Nicholas Hennink; a plaque presentation honouring the Moose Jaw Early Bird Lions Club’s
$10,000-donation to the hospice room; and recognition of Colleen Oshowy’s creation of a quilt — 100 inches by 70 inches — that will be laid on patients at the hospice who die and are transported to the hearse. Ferguson joined the Heartland Hospice board in memory of her mother and father, she explained. Both of her parents could have used specialized hospice — or palliative — care at the end of their lives. Ferguson noted that every board member joined the organization in memory of a loved one who died. “We all have a story, and I bet you every person here tonight has a story,” Ferguson remarked. Ferguson estimated that at least 110 tickets were sold for the fundraiser. She noted
the board is thrilled with that turnout, considering this is a first-time event and they were unsure how it would go. However, board members were thankful that residents came to support the organization. “I want like to express gratitude for the people of Moose Jaw who have been with us since the beginning, of our research and development and the whole journey we’ve had,” added board chair Lena Hartman. Residents have supported Heartland Hospice not only financially, but also with moral support, Hartman continued. The community has always provided feedback when asked and has been there for the organization every step of the way. “This is the kind of thing that has really inspired us to continue and has really pushed us forward,” she added.

Scotty the T.rex breaking records — and scales
While Mac the Moose works to regain his largest title, Scotty the T.rex steps in and claims another largest title for Saskatchewan: largest T.rex ever found. By Larissa Kurz
Saskatchewan’s own Scotty has recently been declared the largest tyrannosaurus rex ever found, which also makes it the largest meat-eating specimen ever found, adding to its titles as one of the most complete T.rex skeletons ever found and the first T.rex found in Saskatchewan. Scotty weighs in at an estimated 8,870kg, surpassing An idea of what the massive meat-eater is thought to the previous record-holder have looked like. (Supplied) fossil — Sue from the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago — by about 400kg. The skeleton was discovered near Eastend in 1991, and paleontologists recovered 65% of the 65-million-year-old T.rex’s fossilized bones, an incredibly complete skeleton as far as dinosaurs go. The paper revealing Scotty’s accomplishment was written by paleontologists from the University of Alberta and Florida State University, comparing various discovered T.rex remains; a draft version also concluded that Scotty was around 30 years old at the time of death, and still cannot be determined whether the newly anointed king of dinosaurs was male or female. A replica of Scotty lives at the T.rex Discovery Centre in Eastend, and there are now plans to add another replica to the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Regina, which means Scotty will soon be welcoming visitors to celebrate this accomplishment. More information about the T.rex Discovery Centre and about Scotty can be found on the Royal Saskatchewan Museum’s website.

Little yellow book reveals prices, unknown car makers from the past “Don’t buy anything!” were the parting words from my partner/ wife as I left for the Sukanen Museum antiques/ collectibles by Ron Walter show. There was no plan to buy anything. Our house is already overcrowded with treasures neither of us can bear to part with. On viewing the exhibits my eyes were drawn to a little coil-bound yellow book, called Motor Vehicle Data Book, 1948-49. “It’s the black book for car prices,” said the vendor. “It lists all the prices then for cars made from 1935-49.” I wondered how much that ’39 Ford sedan our family had from 1945 to 1950 was worth. “How much?”I asked. “Ten dollars.” “Will you take five?” I countered. She accepted. Now I owned this book, published by automotive industry data broker Sanford Evans. To my surprise, the book contained values for car manufacturers I had never heard of, not that I am well-versed in the area. The American Bantam Car Company of Butler, Penn, was one with 16 models produced between 1940-41, ranging in price from $546 to $660. American Bantam was formed in 1935 from the remains of an American Austin company and produced a variety of cars, trucks and van-like vehicles until 1941. Bantam actually won the wartime contract to build the first jeep but lost the contract to Ford and Willys Overland when it was unable to handle the 75 unit per day production schedule. Cord was another new car company to me. Made by Auburn Automobile of Indiana, Cord had 16 models listed. It must have been a luxury car as Prices ranged from $3,195 to $4,680. Auburn built its first car in 1903, the same
year the Ford Model A came out. William Wrigley from the chewing gum fortune invested in Auburn. The Cord was named after a new president who bought the Duesenberg Company for Auburn. Auburn sold 3400 cars in 1931, bringing out 12-cylinder models the next year. In 1935 during the depths of the Great Depression, a line of supercharged speedsters was introduced. Not surprisingly the company filed for bankruptcy in 1937. The Kaiser-Frazer Export Corporation of Willow Run, Mich., had four sedan models from 1948 and 1949, priced $2,777 to $3,565. This company was a partnership of U.S. industrial leader Henry Kaiser and J.W. Frazer who acquired the assets of Graham-Paige which was an unsuccessful startup after the Graham brothers worked with the Dodge Brothers. Kaiser-Frazer was the only new post-war company to survive even if only until 1951 when it became Kaiser until ceasing production in 1955. Kaiser did continue manufacturing vehicles in Argentina. Israel and the Netherlands into the 1980s. Graham-Paige Motors of Walkerville. Ont., had over 100 models listed from between 1935 and end of production in 1941. Graham-Paige was associated with the Graham Brothers who built a truck with the Dodge Brothers. Another Canadian model unknown to me was the Terraplane, made in Tilbury Ont., by Hudson Motors. The book listed 42 models from 1935-37, all priced under $1,200. Built between 1932-38[JR1] , the powerful and sturdy Terraplane was Hudson’s lower priced response to the Depression. By the way, that ’39 Ford sedan my family had was worth $882 in 1949. Asking price for a restored model today: between $16,500US and $26,000US. Correction. The March 12 article about Mosaic Place contained incorrect information. Combined profit was $319,368, or 9.5 per cent of revenues. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net
Non-yield insurance policy allows farmer risks By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
Farmers can push out higher bushel an acre yields by spending more on crop inputs but generally fear the extra outlay. A Moose Jaw-based insurance company can cover their fears, says Grant Kosior, founder of Global Ag Risk Solutions. Grant Kosior Insurance of farm input costs is among the policies offered by Global Ag Risk, Kosior told an RBC farm meeting in Moose Jaw. Benchmarking of data on a district or regional scale is one of the biggest things missing in agriculture, said Kosior. By sharing information with Farmers Edge, operators can find out that more fertilizer or certain seed varieties will increase yields. “Benchmarking has created some knowledge and fear.” The fear is: “what if I do it and it freezes on August 19?” The fear makes sense but Global Ag Risk insures that loss. “Every time you spend money on your crop your coverage goes up by that same amount. We removed that fear when data shows you need to spend more money. “If you spend and get kicked in the shins by Mother Nature you just get paid more from Global Ag.” The input insurance policy will help convince bankers to lend as it transfers risk. Kosior said the company insures about four million aces at $3 an acre. Ron Walter can be reached at email@example.com

DOWN ON THE
It has been a few months since we said goodbye to our beautiful old rescue dog Timber. To be perfectly honest, we are not ready for another dog…yet. In the meantime, we have adjusted by Dale “bushy” Bush our daily schedules and now have a few more “freedoms” from being a dog’s best friend. We no longer need to limit our time away from home because the dog will be “dancing cross legged” needing to pee when we get home. That time limit was also a great excuse to leave a dull party or tedious event where we could be at home hanging out with the dog and our cat, Miss Ella. Miss Ella is not a true replacement for Timber but with the proper and patient training she might be the best doggone substitute for a gone dog. Looking back now, Timber had a big hand/paw in the dogification of the kitten and began training her the day she joined the family at the age of 12 weeks. They became best buddies and we could see the cat
pick up some canine habits from “her” dog, like circling 3 times on her bed before settling in for a nap. I should clarify that by “her” bed I meant Timbers because she would take up most of his bed and allow him a small corner, which was funny because she was such a small kitten, but could starfish like a pro. The dog had his perimeter patrol routine that was accomplished once or twice a day and it wasn’t long before the kitten was a willing accomplice in that endeavour. She was always a few steps behind and would travel at her own pace, but would quickly run and catch up if her buddy got too far ahead. I could swear that he would wait for her. With Timber gone, that perimeter patrol is now a responsibility shared by myself and Miss Ella. Our daily little 5 minute walk is comforting for both of us and creates a man dog…er man cat bond. Ella is so dog like during these walks she does everything her dog did except lift her leg for a peepee. She stops and sniffs as a dog would at all four corners of the lot and a few other interesting spots, but she does not stay inside the fence and will walk along the top pole. Timber was lousy at playing fetch and he trained the cat well because she will not retrieve a ball or a Frisbee either. You could throw a ball or frisbee for the old dog and he would look at you as if to say, “You had it and you threw it…so you go get it”, but if
you gave him the ball he would take it to where you would throw it just to save you the effort. Helpful to a fault. Give the cat a ball and she will try to push it off the table and then try to “kill” it. As for retrieving anything, it just isn’t in her job description. Timber was a natural for security…bravely barking, alerting and saving us from welcome visitors, killer mailmen, squirrels (also killers) and on four different occasions, black bears. The cat will also alert us of welcome and unwelcome visitors but a small meow is just not as intimidating as a deep growling bark. Our ‘Beware of Cat” signs are cute but ineffective as deterrents to bad guys, although we have not had any bear activity since Ella took over security so maybe she is having an effect. Now when Miss Ella and I go for our walks I am reminded of old Timber partly because of our route, but mostly because she will not heel…just like Timber...sigh.
Online platform matches direct from farm-gate exporters with buyers By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express
RBC has lunched EXPRESS an online platform called Global Connect to take advantage of growing global trade opportunities. The platform and the mysteries of exporting were revealed to 90 farmers at an RBC meeting in Moose Jaw. “Currently less than five per cent of Canadian small/medium enterprises are exporting outside of Canada,” said Mark Driscoll of RBC trade finance. “When you compare that to Germany or the U.K. up to 30 per cent of similar sized businesses are taking advantage of opportunities in other countries.” New trade agreements with Europe and Asia resulted in “many of you seeing that opportunity in new direct buyers asking for you to sell your product direct to anAGRIMART
other country as opposed to through larger buyers.” Hurdles keeping business from exporting include access to working capital, finding markets, finding buyers, ensuring payment and documentation. Using its global banking network RBC has developed an RBC trade club to help find a match with partners who want to buy Canadian products. The trade club is offered as a free resource to anyone. “It’s like Internet dating,” Driscoll said. The trade club allows exporters to identify country markets, select buyers, determine duties, value-added taxes and any restrictions or permitting. “Your primary concerns are getting paid and controlling goods until the buyer receives them.” Bank support includes financing letters of credit that guarantee payment and
Randy Lott shipping documents to allow control of goods. Managing risk with insurance of accounts receivables can also involve Export Development Canada (EDC), a federal Crown Corporation.
Randy Lott of EDC said the corporation operates like a bank, assessing and insuring risks, often partnering with a bank in financing, insurance and bonding. “If some form of your revenue is coming from outside of Canada you should be talking to us,” said the former Moose Jaw resident. EDC insures political risk, even risk of repudiation of shipment. Sam Woods of Calgary-based logistics firm Jori International outlined 10 steps in export documentation in detail. His firm supports the shipping and documentation process. He cautioned one slip-up in documentation can see a shipment delayed or rejected by overseas customs inspectors.

Potholes are already a problem this spring Moose Jaw residents polled that yes, they do think potholes are something to be concerned about this spring, and the City promises they are already on the problem. By Larissa Kurz
As any Saskatchewan resident knows, the arrival of good weather means the arrival of monstrous potholes, and they are unavoidable once again this year. Pothole season in Moose Jaw is in full swing, and although the pleasant temperatures and gentle sunlight make it feel like everything is thawing for the better, the reality below the ground is a bit different. Steven Lopston, Transportation Services Manager for the city, says this year’s cold winter saw frost penetrating the ground almost 8 feet down, and while the top layer is all puddles and mud, below is still frozen and causing the root of our roadway problems. “It may seem like everything’s melting, but it’s only melting in the top 6 inches right now, so the water that’s melting is going down and actually freezing below the ground level,” said Lopston. “So we’re still getting frost — they call it frost lensing, it actually helps to push the potholes up.” The problem with that frozen layer underground is that it gathers water and
Be careful of less than ideal road conditions, they can be hazardous to your vehicle. pushes it up through the asphalt, which then breaks and pushes the gravel layer upwards. The ideal is for that water to drain off into the gutters, but until it has reached the surface, it remains a problem for repairs. There are two road crews already on the job, earlier than expected, and they are doing what they can to alleviate the situation. The problem, Lopston says, is that it is still melting and those are not favorable conditions for any longterm fixes.
“We’ve been hitting them with gravel, and cleaning them out with grating, and hitting them with cold mix. But cold mix won’t survive if you put it in water, it’ll basically become gravel by the end of the day, and then it blows out the same,” said Lopston. “We will be switching over to hot mix once the conditions are more favourable, once the frost has come out of the ground and we’re in a position where we can actually go in and create a proper base to put the asphalt on.”
Lopston doesn’t think this spring is going to be any worse than usual for road conditions, and the quick melt is really only relevant in terms of how quickly the crews can be on the job. “This wasn’t expected to come this quick, and so we’ve had a number of guys who’ve come back from time off and days off and are able to come in and start working,” said Lopston. “I know it seemed a little dicey there for a little while, but they’re working hard in the background.” Lopston asks residents to be patient with the repair crews, as they’re doing the best they can with the current conditions, and reminds drivers to use caution when on the roads. Pylons surrounding broken concrete are there to indicate hazards and he urges everyone to slow down when passing them. If there is a particularly nasty pothole in the city, it can be reported to the department by calling (306) 694-4550, and the road crews will compile a list of reported areas and prioritize their patching as quickly as they can.
Regional Library will see an increase in funding this year
Due to continued public support, the new budget will pledge an increase in funding to the Palliser Regional Library this year. By Larissa Kurz
The Palliser Regional library is receiving an increase in funding from the provincial government for the first time in a number of years, and director Jan Smith is extremely pleased with the news. “It’s the first time since 2011 we’ve received a 1.5% increase to a base grant from the government to run our headquarters operations, which is, as far as we’re concerned, absolutely wonderful,” said Smith. The funding was announced as a For the first time in years, the Regional Library part of the recent budget and will is receiving additional funding from the provinlook like an additional $128,000 cial government. spread between the five regional libraries, three city libraries, and the Pahkisimon Nuyeʔáh Library System in the province. As for Palliser Library, Smith says the funding will go a long way in covering basic operations costs, such as employee payroll, and cover other hidden costs like the upcoming carbon tax. “Because we do a lot of travel — we do about 2,000 kilometers a week delivering books in our region, plus we have the one where we go out and do the training, so we’re figuring the carbon tax is going to be adding $1,000 - $2,000 [or so] to our budget, so this will help us with that,” said Smith. The funding is a complete turnaround from previous years, such as the attempted funding cuts of 2017 that were restored after much public outrage. In January, as promised in 2017, the government held a Public Library Engagement Survey, and Smith says the input received through that report had to have played a role in budget decisions. “The libraries had 5,800 respondents to the survey, which pretty much blew the government’s mind,” Smith said. “It meant that people were still actively involved, and we really want to thank the public for taking time and going to answer the questions on the government survey. It really led to our 1.5% increase.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS In celebration of paper roadmap day The highways. grid roads and goat trails are calling: “come travel on us, see the world, or at least the parts within range of your vehicle’s gas tank.” As soon as the snow had melted sufficiently to see the bare pavement or the Joyce Walter gravel on the gravel road, For Moose Jaw Express the wanderlust bug began biting, suggesting it is time to take off the winter tires, put away the extra winter clothing and blankets in the emergency suitcase and head somewhere to see how the land weathered a fairly harsh winter with frigid temperatures for an extended period. And so on a recent Sunday, we filled the water bottles, made sure we had some snacks and a full gas tank and headed on a short journey in a westerly direction. We knew our destination and how to get there and back home with nothing more than a few mileage signs between here and there. This, after all, was a mere work-up to what we hope will be some interesting excursions as the trees leaf out, the ditch-
es start turning green and on occasion we might see a crocus patch in a field beside the road. For future trips of longer duration, we will require a roadmap to help us on our way and therefore, I am excited to ask one and all to join in the April 5 celebration of “read a roadmap day.” This is a day to pick up a paper map, an atlas map, even a printed Google map to ensure that once the highway beckons, one can find one’s way without any reliance on electronic and digital devices that often provide travellers with doubtful information. It is believed the earliest roadmap was the Britania Atlas prepared in 1675 by Cartographer John Ogilby. Since then researchers have lost track of the number of maps prepared and discarded. In the celebration of roadmap day, officials suggest the driver not be the one reading the map, that instead, where possible, a navigator be brought along to take charge of the map. I found it strange that the date of the map does not appear to be as important as knowing how to actually read all the lines and squiggles on a map. Knowing which is the top and bottom is important as is knowing the direction one is travelling before the map is unfurled by the navigator.
Housemate always laughs at my ability, or lack thereof, to know in which direction I’m travelling. If I can’t see the sun I’m lost, and if the road angles, my confusion is compounded. That is why I like a vehicle that has the gadget that tells the driver the direction being travelled, day or night, rain or shine. While many vehicles and cellphones have built in navigational systems, I doubted the ability of the monotone voice when she insisted on directing my driving friend to turn left where there was no road and to turn right onto the wrong side of a one-way street. Housemate’s phone gave better directions on a trip into Alberta but making that voice stop repeating the same direction was a challenge, even more so than allowing the navigator to read the map to ascertain which road we would be wise to take to arrive safely at an obscure location. Another purpose of the map day is to encourage all of us to notice our surroundings: the navigator insists he’s directing us correctly — but I’m sure we’re lost. Didn’t we already go past that old barn? I’m definitely noticing my repetitive surroundings. Joyce Walter can be reached at email@example.com

Questions answered during public meeting for new dual-division school Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
Student safety was one of the primary concerns for attendees at a special question-and-answer public meeting regarding the new South Hill joint-use school on Thursday night at Riverview Collegiate. More than 100 people filled the school’s gymnasium to hear members of the Prairie South School Division and Holy Trinity Catholic School Division go over a variety of questions and concerns about the project, marking the first step in what promises to be a series of public consultations leading up to planning and construction. Attendees were encouraged to write and leave questions on post-it notes at the event, which were gathered and will be answered on a special website for the schools’ construction. Questions at the event covered the gamut of potential concerns, ranging from the potential location to class sizes and balance, school start times, and updates on the project as a whole. Given how preliminary the process is – the announcement was made on Mar. 20, the day the provincial budget was released – many of those questions will be answered in the future. One that was
in general. “On social media, there were 116 people who said they were going to come, and while there wasn’t quite that number here tonight, it was a good crowd and I think (Holy Trinity board chair) Derek (Hassan) was right when he said ‘people are engaged’. We’re never going to have a chance to do this again, at least in my lifetime, on South Hill in Moose Jaw, so it’s such an exciting time and opportunity for the staff and the boards and I’m really excited for the city of Moose Jaw and the community on South Hill for what this is going to bring.”
More than 100 people took part in the question and answer sessions.
touched on extensively, though, was location, with Baldwin explaining how that plan will work. “The Ministry (of Education) will have the most to do with that,” he said. “All four of the current schools are on crown land of some description and we know we’re going to need a big footprint. So either the land that is currently yard at Westmount or the land that is currently the yard at Sacred Heart will be the most likely sites.
“But there’s a lot that has to happen, the ministry will contact the city, we’ll sit down with the city and try and hash out how to meet everybody’s needs. If it’s one of those two sites, that would be great, and if it’s another site that would be great, too.” Turnout for the event was especially positive in Baldwin’s eyes, with the interest showing just how much the project means to South Hill residents and the Moose Jaw education community
Among the many attendees were Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence (back) and Vanier principal Brad Moser (back left).
Local singer finds purpose and peace through music and family Matthew Gourlie
Abby Magee may be young, but the local singer has plenty to say. The 17-year-old released her new single “Second Chance” earlier this month and it's a deeply personal song about her battle with depression and the place she finds herself now. “I have bad depression and anxiety, and a couple of years ago I had tried to kill myself, then I spent some time in the hospital. I was really depressed and I thought, ‘this is it for me; I don't have anything to live for,’ Magee said. "I met my boyfriend and we had our daughter about a year after we met. They showed me that I do have something to live for and that life isn't just what I thought it was. It's so much more than that and there's so much to live for. “They were my second chance and nothing is going to knock me down because I have them and I'm stronger now. They keep me strong and show me that I am amazing and I do have purpose.”

Magee credits her boyfriend Landon Desrosiers and their 15-month old daughter Elsie-May for helping her find stability in her life. She has also turned to music and songwriting as a healthy outlet for her worries and her creativity.
“I want to maybe inspire them with anything they’re going through and know that they’re not alone.” -Abby Magee “Anytime that I am feeling upset or feeling down or even just stressed, music has been such a release for me,” Magee said. “Anytime I start singing, all of the stress just goes away and all of the pain is put into my music. If I'm having a bad day I think, ‘OK, let's try to write a song and get these feelings onto paper and into something great’… “I know that good things can come from the bad.” Magee is still in the early stages of her career. She performed at the songwriter's showcase at Sidewalk Days, but otherwise hasn't had many opportunities to perform in public. She did catch the attention of Jared Robinson from Nebulus Entertainment at those showcases. “The first year he really liked my music and the second year I got second place and that's when I got a free recording with him,” said Magee. To date she has recorded “Second Chance” and an earlier song, “Free”, with Robinson. Magee is writing songs and hopes to record more songs

as she continues to progress in her career. She said that she has always wanted to express herself and share her experiences, and she hopes that sharing the bad times she went through can help others. And if she can help other people, she reasons then that makes it not so bad that she had to go through some of the things she has gone through in her life. “I want to have more songs out and my main goal is to just help people through my music,” Magee said. “I want to maybe inspire them with anything they're going through and know that they're not alone. There are people out there who care for them. I want people to be able to listen to my music and think ‘this makes sense to me’ and I want it to help them in any way that I can.”

Chamber awards to honour smaller community businesses By Jason G. Antonio Moose Jaw Express
This year’s Moose Jaw Business Excellence (MJBEX) Awards will showcase another side of the community, as smaller businesses with fewer employees will be honoured during the event. The MJBEX Awards is an annual celebration of the best businesses in the city. This year’s awards ceremony and banquet occurs Wednesday, April 10 at the Heritage Inn. The Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce — which sponsors the awards — has announced 65 nominees in 12 categories. There will be a different crowd celebrated during this year’s MJBEX program, said Rob Clark, chamber CEO. Last year the chamber celebrated larger businesses; this year it is smaller companies. “It’s great to recognize them and their contributions … ,” Clark said. “It will be another great evening.” The chamber of commerce is putting the finishing touches on the awards evening, Clark said. All of the finalists are creating 15- to 30-second videos about their businesses. Those videos will be shown during the awards ceremony
and attendees “will get to see the real people behind the scenes on a quick video prior to each category.” Tickets for the awards banquet are selling well, he continued. The chamber is on track to sell more than 400 tickets, which would be similar to the 460 sold last year. Tickets for the MJBEX Awards can be purchased by calling the chamber office at 306-692-6414, or by visiting the chamber office at 88 Saskatchewan Street East. There is structure to the MJBEX Awards program since it has been around for 18 years, said Clark, who has been chamber CEO for four years. Every year, the chamber starts preparing in September for the awards ceremony. “It’s about a five- to six-month planning process,” he continued. “It heats up until the final day of the event. It’s a lot of work. (But) it’s quite rewarding because you get to meet a lot of new businesses. You get to understand what they do in business.” To determine who wins awards, the chamber selects seven people who are independent of the organization to judge those businesses that have been submitted.

Campsite registration online this year; starting April 2nd Larissa Kurz
Campsite registration for provincial parks will begin on Apr. 2 and will take place online through the new reservation system. The site will open for registration at 7am for campsites, including Camp-Easy sites, and a queuing system will be used for fairness so campers are encouraged to log on early. Apr. 2 opens registration for Camp reservation: (supplied by seasonal campsites, while group Sask Parks) camping reservations will be available on Apr. 4 at 7am and nightly sites on Apr. 8 to 18, depending on the park. The list of campsites and the dates their nightly reservations will become available to book can be found at the Sask Parks website. Sask Parks is expecting there to be a wait time, and are encouraging campers to familiarize themselves with the new system prior to booking day; this means creating their account and logging on before the site opens to ensure their place in the wait list. Users already logged in and waiting between 6:40 am and 7am on booking day will be randomly assigned a place in the queue, and those who join after registration opens on the site will be listed at the back of the line. Once in the queue, you will be automatically directed to the site when it is your turn.
It is time to be bold by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor “If you don’t make bold moves, the world doesn’t move forward.” - Richard Branson Beginning October 1, 2019, Saskatchewan’s minimum wage will increase by a dime.

chamber puts together binders of all the entries and gives the books to the judges, who then score each entry based on established criteria. “We keep everything away from chamber staff and board members,” Clark said. “It’s not a popularity contest. It’s a true merit-based process.” Moose Javians should attend the Moose Jaw Business Excellence Awards ceremony, particularly if they are community minded, Clark said. It will be an entertaining evening, with outtakes and bloopers from the business videos shown throughout the night. The Hollywood-themed ceremony will feature a walk of fame, while the finalists will be interviewed on the red carpet before they walk into the room. Those in attendance can also vote for the People’s Choice Award on the floor, right up until it is awarded. “It’s (going to be) a great, great evening … ,” added Clark. “It’s showcasing these businesses for all they’ve done for the community.”
Veterans eligible for free hunting and angling licenses in Saskatchewan Moose Jaw Express Staff
For the first time, Saskatchewan will be offering free hunting and angling licenses for Canadian Armed Forces veterans. In recognition of their service, veterans who were honourably discharged from the Armed Forces are eligible for a free hunting or angling license for the 2019-20 licensing year, “The Government of Saskatchewan appreciates the commitment and sacrifices of Canadian Armed Forces veterans and will offer hunting and angling licences at no cost to recognize their contributions,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said in a press release. The free licenses are available to Saskatchewan and Canadian resident veterans starting on Friday, April 12. The offer does not apply to Big Game Draw licences or outfitted licence opportunities. Veterans will need to be verified to confirm their eligibility through the automated Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence (HAL) system. The following forms of identification will be acceptable: National Defense Identification Certificate; a picture or a copy of their Certificate of Service; and their Release or Discharge Certificate. Verification can be completed at a
month really make an impact on improving one’s quality of life? I think not. In this week’s installment of the Wellness Column, I look not to argue what the minimum wage should be, however I use it as an example to emphasize the need to make bold moves, for real change to occur. We are nearly 3 months into the new year. Soon, that 3-month membership many have signed up for will expire and I suspect the majority of resolution makers have failed to reach their goals. For those of you not happy with your results, can you honestly say that you made “bold moves”? “I try to eat healthier”, “I try to get to the gym more”, “I’m drinking less pop”, “I’m getting to bed a little bit sooner”. Are these really bold moves? Drinking less pop is going to have the same impact as a 10 cent raise in Saskatchewan!
Free hunting and angling licenses are available this season for Canadian Armed Forces veterans. (handout photo) ministry field office or by emailing the required information to the ministry. Photo identification indicating date of birth and current address is also required. In the absence of photo identification, two pieces of acceptable identification will be required. For more information on this opportunity, including eligibility requirements and how to apply, please visit www.saskatchewan.ca/hunting_angling or call the Ministry of Environment Inquiry Centre at 1-800-567-4224.
How about drinking NO POP? How about exercising daily, instead of once or twice a week? How about getting a full 8 hours of sleep each night? Now these are bold moves that will lead to positive health outcomes. While bold moves are often unpopular, it’s the bold moves that will move the world forward. We elect leaders to do what is best for us. We look to them to sometimes make the bold, yet unpopular moves that can make real difference. Sugary cereals should not be cheaper than the healthier ones. Green leafy vegetables should not be more expensive than pasta. Potato chips and candy should not be a dime a dozen while fresh fruit rots on the shelf because it’s too expensive for those on fixed incomes to afford. Maybe sin taxes on junk food should be significant enough to subsidize groceries that add value to our health. Now that would be a bold move. Obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease are winning because bold moves are not being made. What is your next move?

Property Owners. Residents. The City of Moose Jaw wants your feedback on proposed amendments to the Noise and Smoking Bylaws. Visit www.MooseJaw.ca for details.
Local Visit Moose Jaw group attracts events to city By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express
Membership in the destination marketing group, Visit Moose Jaw that tries to attract events, has benefitted the Moose Jaw Exhibition company. “It played a large part in attracting the 2018 mining safety competitions,” exhibition CEO George Fowler told the annual meeting. “There were over 700 miners for three days and it had huge economic spinoff for the city.” Moose Jaw is now on the three-year rotation for the event. Visit Moose Jaw commitments helped attract this August’s provincial barrel racing championships, he said. The event will
have more than 400 horses for five days. “It is by far the biggest horse event in Saskatchewan.” The Visit Moose Jaw group supported the 55 Plus games, several soccer events, a senior baseball tournament, mixed doubles curling and put $55,000 towards next year’s Scotties’ curling bonspiel. Visit Moose Jaw is a voluntary organization of tourist-related operations, mostly hotels. Fowler praised the annual spring youth bronc riding school in Moose Jaw. “When these kids come here to get schooled they are getting top notch safety. They leave
sore but knowing a lot more about riding horses than they knew before.” Lee Bellows, school organizer, said two of their students won Canadian Professional rodeo titles in novice and novice bareback. Fowler invited visitors to the May 4 and 5 school. The non-profit exhibition company lost four horse show rentals last year from low registration but Fowler said they are back on board for this year. Barrel racing jackpots are a new event here since December. “They had 105 runs on Saturday and had the fastest times since they started coming.”
The year-end exhibition company surplus of $16,295 was down from $68,390 the previous year with most of the revenue loss from direct events — the fair and horse shows – and sponsorships. Re-elected as directors were Ray Whitney, Lee Bellows, Mel Burns and Michelle Blakely. Brian Swanson received an honorary life membership for his years of service as a city council representative and his volunteer efforts with events on the Exhibition Grounds.

Anti-smoking groups applaud move to ban smoking, vaping in green spaces and outdoor patios By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter
The Saskatchewan Coalition for Tobacco Reduction is encouraged by city council’s decision to move to ban smoking and vaping from outdoor patios and all municipal-owned green spaces. City council voted 6-1 to approve a motion during its executive meeting on March 25 to amend the smoking bylaw. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. The next step will see city administration consult with the public — including business owners — on the proposed changes. Once completed, administration plans to bring the new bylaw to the second council meeting in April. The bylaw would go into effect in June if approved. Residents should visit www.MooseJaw.ca and click on the smoking bylaw amendments header on the home page to view the proposed amendments. Written comments or suggestions will be accepted until Thursday, April 11 at 11:59 p.m. All submissions can be emailed to cclerk@ moosejaw.ca or mailed to the city clerk’s department at city hall. Saskatchewan Coalition for Tobacco Reduction Council needs to take three actions once the bylaw amendment is officially approved, Jennifer May, vice-president of community engagement with The Lung Association and a representative for the Saskatchewan Coalition for Tobacco Reduction, told city council. This includes marking smoke-free spaces with adequate signage; implementing a communications strategy to inform residents of the changes; and creating a short transition strategy from the bylaw’s approval to when it goes into effect.
Jennifer May, vice-president of community engagement with The Lung Association and a representative for the Saskatchewan Coalition for Tobacco Reduction, speaks to city council about how important changes to the smoking bylaw will be. She also provided three suggestions once the bylaw amendments are officially approved. Photo by Jason G. Antonio To ensure there is good compliance and to prevent headaches with enforcing the bylaw, May suggested removing vaping from one section in the bylaw dealing with cultural or ceremonial smoking. She also recommended a 100-per-cent ban on smoking or vaping in parks, play-
grounds or sports fields. “Regina has not done a good job (with signage) and they have had lots of complaints and problems,” added Donna Pasiechnik with the Canadian Cancer Society — Saskatchewan division. “You can’t expect people to know where to smoke if there are no signs.” It is enjoyable going to a restaurant without inhaling cigarette smoke, said Coun. Brian Swanson. However, he was concerned that businesses would incur expenses to create a legal place to smoke outside. He wondered where smokers are allowed to puff if not in parks or outdoor patios. The coalition is not asking that smoking be banned everywhere — such as sidewalks and streets — but simply places where people gather outside, where kids play sports, all recreational areas and outdoors patios where people work, said Pasiechnik. “We are trying to do everything in our power to make smoking less desirable, less normal, so our kids grow up and choose not to smoke,” she said, adding most Moose Javians would likely support this smoking ban. Smoking is the No. 1 cause of premature death and kills 48,000 Canadians yearly, said May. That means Moose Jaw and the surrounding municipalities disappear each year. The nicotine habit also costs the Canadian health-care system $200 million each year, according to the Conference Board of Canada, Pasiechnik added. The next city council meeting is Monday, April 8.
City physicians thrilled with proposed changes to smoking bylaw By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter Two municipal physicians representing larger health organizations are thrilled with city council’s decision to amend the smoking bylaw to eliminate smoking and vaping from outdoor patios and all municipal-owned green spaces. Council voted 6-1 to approve a motion during its executive meeting on March 25 to amend the smoking bylaw. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. The next step will see city administration consult with the public — including business owners — on the proposed changes. Once completed, administration plans to bring the new bylaw to the second council meeting in April. The bylaw would go into effect in June if approved. People for a Smoke-Free Moose Jaw More than 100 Canadian cities have passed similarly comprehensive bylaws,
said Dr. Mark Brown, a family physician and representative of People for a SmokeFree Moose Jaw. The evidence is overwhelming that restaurants and bars thrive when anti-smoking bylaws are in place. “That’s been like that ever since smoking (bans) in public places came into effect,” Brown said. Vaping is addictive and touted as a replacement for smoking, he noted. However, physicians know it stills damages lungs. Brown’s daughter thought it was cool that the City of Moose Jaw planned to ban vaping in public places. She told him that many of her peers vape regularly. He concurred, telling council it’s exploding among teens since the vaping industry targets that demographic. “If teens get hooked, you have a customer
for life,” he added. “So this (policy) is important for future children and grandchildren.” The Prairie South School Division (PSSD) heard a presentation recently about vaping in schools, said Swanson. Principals are concerned about how widespread vaping is since it is difficult to monitor. PSSD is supportive of bringing forward procedures to ban vaping in schools or on school grounds. Saskatchewan Health Authority “We are extremely happy with the (bylaw) amendment and are impressed with council addressing smoking and vaping behaviours, rather than being fixated on the actual substance being smoked or vaped,” said Dr. Mark Vooght, a medical health officer in the Moose Jaw area. “We are also happy this is being applied
to public patios, because this is a popular place for our families to attend, especially in warmer weather.” The Saskatchewan Health Authority is encouraged that the bylaw amendments cover parks and playgrounds, Vooght said. The amendments would help prevent children from experiencing the harmful effects of smoking and vaping. Health officials know that a comprehensive smoke-free policy reduces exposure to second-hand smoke and reduces overall health-care costs. It also has a positive effect on businesses since, based on research, restaurants and bars would see an increase in patrons. The next city council meeting is Monday, April 8.

City Hall Council Notes
Input sought for possible changes to noise bylaw Noise complaint from Canadian rocker about dance studio generated bylaw review Jason G. Antonio -Moose Jaw Express
Amendments to the City of Moose Jawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noise bylaw would attempt to balance how loud downtown commercial operations can be with the comfort of nearby residents, says city administration. The need to amend the noise bylaw arose after Canadian rocker Burton Cummings began complaining last September about noise from Dance Fitness With Kyra. Cummings lives in a residential building next to the dance studio, which businesswoman Kyra Klassen owns and operates. Cummings visited the dance studio several times to complain about the noise, while he also called police and went to city council to have a zoning bylaw changed. During its executive committee meeting on March 25, city council voted 5-1 on a recommendation to have administration proceed with public consultations about proposed changes to the noise bylaw and building bylaw. Administration would then be authorized to enact any potential amendments from those consultations. The proposed amendment to the building bylaw would require soundproofing in separate mixed-use buildings that have walls flush with one another. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed to the recommendation. Coun. Heather Eby was absent from the discussion. The current noise bylaw that is in place is doing what it should do, said Swanson. However, he was concerned with how the motion was worded. He thought it was incumbent upon elected officials to provide clear direction to city administration in motions; he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think this particular motion did that. Klassen spoke with the media after the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate that (the situation) escalated so quickly,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just hope everybody can walk away feeling at
Kyra Klassen, owner and operator of Dance Fitness With Kyra, speaks to the media after attending city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s March 25 meeting. peace with this decision made, that fairness is brought to both parties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We both want to co-exist happily and I hope thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the outcome.â&#x20AC;? City administration does not believe the licensing bylaw is the most effective way to address this issue, Michelle Sanson, director of planning and development services, told city council. Changes to the licensing bylaw or zoning bylaw would limit the types of businesses downtown. It would also detract from the intended mixed use character described in the official community plan. Instead, administration suggests combining the provisions in noise bylaws from the cities of Vancouver and Regina to provide a balanced approach, Sanson said. This would protect residents and businesses.
The City of Moose Jaw would borrow the wording from Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noise bylaw, while it would borrow the noise level restrictions in the Reginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaw. That bylaw says, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., the maximum noise level in residential zones is 60 decibels; in commercial zones and all other zones within 30 metres of a residential zone is 70 decibels; and all other zones is 85 decibels. An administrative report explains that a shower is 70 decibels, a toilet flushing is 75 decibels, an alarm clock is 80 decibels and a snowblower is 85 decibels. The dance studio operates at 70 decibels, while the sound level peaks at 75 decibels, said Klassen. She hopes city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaw proposals will be clear and will help businesses avoid any future altercations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want everybody to be happy,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And (after) all this, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather be dancing.â&#x20AC;? Administration had considered amending the noise bylaw to include the entire city, Sanson told council. However, administration was focused on providing an overview of what a proposed solution could look like. Moose Jawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown was designed to have businesses on the main floor and residential units on top, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie during the meeting. The community is going through a cultural change where businesses want to start up downtown. Council needs to address this issue now to prevent future problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is a good opportunity â&#x20AC;Ś ,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one wants to see these kinds of conflicts in our community. We have to take the high road to resolve them.â&#x20AC;? Administration plans begin consultations soon and bring back possible amendments in April. The next executive committee meeting is Monday, April 8.
Council declines to nominate directors to boards of art museum, cultural centre By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter
The art museum and the cultural centre will vote for their own directors during their respective annual general meetings, after city council declined to nominate any candidates to the two boards. Council made the decision to not exercise its nominating authority during its March 25 meeting. Election of directors of Buffalo Pound Corporation City council voted 6-1 to authorize city manager Jim Puffalt to vote for the election of Judith May and Dale Schoffer to the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation board of directors, during the corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming membership meeting. These re-appointments are for three-year terms. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. The City of Regina and City of Moose Jaw are voting members of Buffalo Pound. Each municipality can use its voting rights to appoint members to the board of directors, based on the recommendation of the governance and nominating committee. Buffalo Pound Corporation believes the best number of directors for its board is six, according to a report from city administration. Since 2016, directors have been elected on a staggered basis. Schoffer retired recently from the University of Regina as associate vice-president of finance, a position he held for 20 years.
The Mae Wilson Theatre May retired from SaskPower in 2015, after working for the Crown corporation for 34 years in roles such as customer service and management. Art museum annual general meeting City council voted to not exercise its ability to elect a majority of the board of directors at the upcoming annual general meeting of the Moose Jaw Art Museum. The municipality has the power to appoint directors to the museum board based on a bylaw created in 1995. According to an administrative report, the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past practice has been to not exercise its authority to appoint a majority of the board of directors. The museum board has been allowed to elect its own directors during its annual

Taste of Saskatchewan featuring local products Instead of a Gala this spring, Habitat for Humanity is hosting the Taste of Saskatchewan banquet as their spring fundraiser. By Larissa Kurz
Habitat for Humanity is trying something new for their spring fundraiser and will be hosting Taste of Saskatchewan on Apr. 24 at the Sportsman Centre, with all funds raised going towards their most recent building project. The evening will feature a roast beef buffet banquet from Charlotte’s Catering and a selection of wine, spirits and beer for tasting from Minhas Sask Brewery. “What’s exciting about the wine and beer from Minhas is that this will be the first time that Saskatchewan residents can actually taste these products, because they are just now being produced, with locally grown product,” said Dayna Chamberlain, co-chair of the fund development committee at Habitat for Humanity. Minhas will be proving a variety of prod-
ucts, for both the tasting and for the cocktails, and Chamberlain promises there will be a chance to try them all. “Tickets are $40 each, which includes the supper and two tasting tickets as well. There will be other tasting tickets that will be available for purchase, as there will be other drinks that will be available that will be done with the products that we’re showcasing,” said Chamberlain. Currently, the event is welcoming offers for sponsorship and is putting together a silent auction or raffle table, to which donations would be welcome. “If somebody would like to be a part of and sponsor the event, we are looking for sponsorship, and we will be having a silent auction or raffle table,” said Chamberlain. “We haven’t really decided
which one of those yet, but if somebody would like to donate something to one of those as well, then we would definitely take that.” Events such as this, Chamberlain noted, have such an important role in bringing
parts of the community together. “When we do these fundraisers, not only can we have those families that we were able to lift up as a community, those others that come to these events get to actually experience and hear from these families about what it means to have that opportunity that they may not have had before, so its very impactful,” said Chamberlain. Tickets for the fundraiser are available at Investment Planning Counsel, Seaborn’s Insurance or by contacting Dayna Chamberlain at (306) 690-6534. Interest in sponsorship can also be directed to Dayna. More info about the event can be found on the Habitat for Humanity’s Facebook event.
Supporting Habitat for Humanity isn’t just wielding a hammer
Habitat for Humanity has been in Moose Jaw for nearly ten years and offers ways to get involved with each build they undertake, some that might be unexpected. By Larissa Kurz
Habitat for Humanity Moose Jaw has broken ground on their ninth build in the city, which means they are welcoming volunteers with open arms. Once the build begins, the organization will be looking for volunteers to help with construction, in either a group or as individuals — organizations or companies can sign on to work a day as a whole group. Although the most visible portion of volunteering does take place on the build site, with hammers and nails and other various construction jobs, there are other options for those who want to help out the organization without lacing up some work boots. Dayna Chamberlain, a member of the committee, noted that people can volunteer in other ways as well, such as providing a meal for the group on the build site on any certain day, or by attending and contributing to the fund-

itat Moose Jaw puts on the Color Run Walk Skip event — both of which are fun ways to offer support to Habitat for Humanity’s projects, not just by attending but also through volunteering and sponsoring. Chamberlain notes how important the organization and the fundraising events are in connecting the community to each other. “What Habitat is doing is they are lifting someone up and giving them hope that they might not have had,” said Chamberlain. “These [fundraising] events, where we can get the community out and get the community together, are so important.” Information about Habitat for Humanity and their current builds can be found on their website, which is also where volunteers can reach out to the committee and get involved.
From The Kitchen Fa n n ie Fa r m e r o f f e rs b a s i c ide a s f o r k i t c h e n s Fannie Farmer’s Boston Cooking School Cook Book was written in 1896 and was considered one of the most influential cooking tools of that era. The cook book offered basic instructions on the steps necessary to prepare edible and nutritious meals — without deviating from the recipe and by paying particular attention to measurements. This week’s recipes come from the 1896 book. It should be noted that in preparing the roast goose recipe, it might be necessary to disregard most of the directions for the farmraised goose and simply buy a goose at the grocery store — then carry on with the recipe as printed. ••• Roast Goose With Potato Stuffing 2 cups hot mashed potatoes 1 1/4 cups soft stale bread crumbs 1/4 cup finely chopped fat salt pork 1 finely chopped onion 1/3 cup butter 1 egg 1 1/2 tsps. salt 1 tsp. sage

Wash and scrub a goose in hot soapsuds. Then draw (remove inside contents), wash in cold water and wipe. Stuff, truss, sprinkle with salt and pepper and lay six thin strips of fat salt pork over breast. Place on rack in dripping pan, put in hot oven and bake two hours. Baste every 15 minutes with fat in pan. Remove pork last half hour of cooking. When done, place on platter, cut string and remove skewers. Garnish with watercress and bright red cranberries. serve with apple sauce. Note: “A goose, having short legs is trussed differently from chicken, fowl and turkey. After inserting skewers, wind string twice around one leg bone, then around other leg bone, having one inch space of string between legs. Draw legs with both ends of string, close to back, cross a string under back then fasten around skewers and tie in a knot,” Miss Farmer advises.

Mix sugar, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice and grated rind and sprinkle over apples. Dot over with butter. Wet edges of under crust, cover with upper crust and press edges together. Bake 40-45 minutes in moderate oven. “A very good pie may be made without butter, lemon juice and grated rind. Cinnamon may be substituted for nutmeg.

Yorkton couple shares inspirational story about overcoming son’s death By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter
After their young son died from cancer, Greg and Leone Ottenbreit found the courage to continue living by relying heavily on their deep faith in Jesus Christ. Brayden Ottenbreit was diagnosed with cancer before his fourth birthday in 1998. While the Yorkton boy went through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, he did not recover and died in 2000 at almost six years of age. His family then started an annual fundraiser called the Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts for Cancer head-shaving event. The fundraiser has generated nearly $1 million since its inception. The Ottenbreits were in Moose Jaw on March 28 as the guest speakers of Heartland Hospice’s inaugural fundraiser called An Evening of Love, Hope, Faith and Resilience. More than 110 people packed into the Mae Wilson Theatre to listen to the couple’s story, while also supporting the hospice’s goal of raising funds to create a garden outside the hospice room at Pioneer Lodge to provide serenity for clients and families who use the room. Courage to live Practising courage means being firm in one’s beliefs and sticking to those beliefs, Mr. Ottenbreit said. “We’ve developed a very strong faith over the years. “To me courage is … also (being) willing to have a little bit of humility. That’s tough

Ferguson was the co-organizer of the event. Photo by Jason G. Antonio for me a lot of the times. Brayden, he was such a courageous little soul.” Last days of life Brayden — who lived his last days at home — died on Friday, Feb. 11, 2000, but began showing signs that he might die on the Tuesday before, Mrs. Ottenbreit explained. The right side of his body was paralyzed, while his pain was intolerable. Brayden slept in his parent’s bed the night before he died, with Greg and Leone on
each side of him. She fell asleep holding Brayden’s right hand tucked under her chin. At 6:45 a.m. on Feb. 11, Brayden moved his hand for the first time in two weeks. “Suddenly I can feel it moving. I thought, ‘I must be dreaming. This is weird,’” said Mrs. Ottenbreit. “I opened my eyes and looked up and kicked Greg because both of (Brayden’s) arms were lifted to the ceiling. There was a smile on his face and …
his eyes both brightened up. And then he took his arms, laid them across his chest and breathed his last. “We knew where he was going and knew who took him.” “It was such a confirmation of what was to come after,” said Mr. Ottenbreit. “I knew that he was OK … It was a pretty amazing experience to witness that.” This is one reason why more focus needs to be placed on end-of-life care and palliative care, said Mrs. Ottenbreit. People need to hear how life is valuable and precious, Mr. Ottenbreit added. At no time did he ever think to end his son’s life prematurely. Inspiration and lessons learned Mrs. Ottenbreit was inspired by her son who, though he had a short life, had a powerful effect on her. She also developed an attitude of being better and not bitter. Mr. Ottenbreit agreed, adding he was inspired by the strength that Leone displayed during that time, and during his cancer scare. One lesson Mrs. Ottenbreit learned was to eliminate the “wouldas, shouldas, couldas” and “what-ifs” from her thinking. Everything that happens in life is a learning opportunity that people need to accept. Both agreed that open communication is important, compared to holding inside thoughts and feelings.
Heartland Hospice to use giant quilt to honour deceased patients By Jason G. Antonio Moose Jaw Express Reporter

LIMITED ASSORTED SIZES
Creating a large quilt for Heartland Hospice Moose Jaw was a labour of love and healing that would not have been possible without the support of others, says the quilt’s maker. Moose Jaw quilter Colleen Osowy officially presented her butterfly quilt — 110 inches by 68 inches in size — to the hospice organization during its inaugural fundraiser on March 28 at the Mae Wilson Theatre. Heartland Hospice will use the quilt to cover patients who have died and are being moved from the hospice unit to the waiting funeral car, honouring them with love, dignity and respect. It took many hands and hearts to pull the quilt together, Osowy told the crowd. She gave birth to the idea, while a community of generous, creative, talented and supportive people brought the quilt to life. The quilt wouldn’t have come to life without the encouragement from Heartland Hospice board director Della Ferguson, Osowy continued. From the moment she uttered the words, “I would like to make a butterfly quilt for the hospice unit,” Ferguson was fully supportive of the project. Ferguson followed every stitch made, snapping photos and posting updates to Facebook. This is also where the

online community showed its love, encouragement and support for the project. Osowy joked that you had better be prepared to follow through on your words if you utter a thought out loud around Ferguson. Osowy credited Elizabeth Hartman with providing the pattern for the quilt; “quilter extraordinaire” Shelley Wicks with Half Yard Quilting Studio for providing fabric, support and encouragement; and Wendy Findlay for custom sewing the pattern using a long-arm quilting machine. “Because I used only the butterfly (pieces) from the pattern, a background had to be designed,” Osowy said. This is where her good friend Jeanne Large stepped into the picture. Large used paper, pencil, a measuring tape, an outline of the quilt dimensions taped to the floor, the completed butterfly blocks within the taped borders and her innovative thinking to quickly and accurately design the background. “I would still be sitting with the paper and pencil were it up to me,” chuckled Osowy. Together, the two women also sewed the binding by using more than 365 inches of hand stitching material. More information about Heartland Hospice can be found at www.heartlandhospicemj.com.

Archery provincials take over YaraCentre
Hundreds of competitors from throughout province take part in NASP event Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
When the National Archery in Schools Program first held their provincial championship in Moose Jaw a few years ago, it was a large scale event that packed YaraCentre. This time around was no different as a total of 875 archers from throughout the province took part in two days of competition to determine the best elementary, middle school and high school archers in Saskatchewan. “It’s actually expanded,” said Doug Gibson, the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation National Archery in Schools Program co-ordinator . “With all the kids and their parents, we probably had around 4,000 people come through the doors this weekend. So we’re seeing some pretty good numbers right now.” The NASP is a curriculum based program for students from Grades 4 to 12, offering an in-school set of classes built around the sport of archery. “Obviously when they’re in Grade 4 they’re just learning and by the time they hit high school they’re seriously competing… there’s just something about archery where they

Competitors unleash a volley at a target kids just love it and the parents love watching it, too,” Gibson said. The idea is to expose youngsters to the sport as much as possible, with the aim of ideally leading to a lifelong love of bows and arrows, whether that means just target shooting or heading out hunting. “For some of them, it does, for sure,” Gibson said. “And as part of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation we’d like to see that happen.

or less here to promote archery in general, whether it’s shooting paper, shooting 3D or hunting, it’s all just getting them out, getting them off the electronics, get them outside and in the gym shooting, that kind of thing. “Our big thing is to get people involved.” Students who stick with the NASP program can become Academic Archers, which rewards competitors with prizes and scholarships for top performances at each level of schooling “So if you get a kid from Grade 9 who sticks with it through Grade 12 and does well, they could have a pretty good chunk of change for their post-secondary education,” Gibson said. All in all, seeing the sport of archery develop and expand in the province has been nothing but positive in Gibson’s opinion. “Some of the kids don’t do anything else,” he said. “You’re standing on the line running the range and you see a kid flinging arrows, and you know that kids doesn’t do anything else at the school, and when they hit a nine or a 10 they get pretty excited. “That makes me happy as a co-ordinator because the kids are having fun for all the right reasons.

Indoor tournament raises funds for youth lawn bowling Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw Lawn Bowling club is hoping to see a ton of young faces picking up the game this summer at the local facility in Crescent Park. How many is yet to be seen, but there’s little question the club is doing their best to make it happen – not only with former provincial champion and national-level competitor Kim Alexanderson acting as coach for the squad, the club held a fundraiser event on Saturday to specifically help promote youth lawn bowling while also raise a few bucks for their road trips in the future. Around 40 players from Moose Jaw and Regina took part in the indoor ‘mat’ bowling competition at Timothy Eaton Gardens, and according to organizer Danny Morin, things couldn’t have gone better than they did. “I’m tickled pink,” he said. “We’re maxed out with four people per team and hopefully if we get some good response from the youth bowlers we’ll make this kind of an annual thing.” The indoor game looks similar to what one might see on the grass at any club, only instead of 120 feet of lawn to play with, bowlers only have a surface six feet wide and around 40 feet long. Complicating matters is a wooden chock put in the middle of the playing surface, forcing bowlers to curl shots into

play. “It’s like a miniature version of the outdoor game but there’s a lot more finesse,” Morin said. “You’re limited to six feet, so the difference between being in the ditch or off the ditch is so fine. So I find it really helps regular lawn bowlers because it makes them think about where they have to lay the ball down.”
Other than that, it’s still the same sport, one that has seen its share of success in the city with the likes of former national champion and world’s competitor Ernie Meid and perennial Canadian title contender Charlie Taylor among the many luminaries to shine on local lawns. Whatever level players are looking to reach, though, the Moose Jaw club will be more than happy to help. “I took it up because I had a hip replaced, and I used it for therapy,” Morin said. “It’s a super fun game, it’s like curling but there’s a few more dimensions to it – the ‘button’ can move and you can move the ‘hack’, things like that. “Anybody can play it any time, and there are so many variable that it’s impossible to get bored with it. Which is why you have people playing it from age eight to 80.” With the weather and frozen ground still a touch too inclement for the outdoor game, the club is looking towards the warmer months – they’ll be holding an open house on June 1, with anyone interested in trying out the sport more than welcome. “That’ll be a good chance for people to try it out and see if it’s for them,” Morin said. “Hopefully we get a lot of people and they have a lot of fun.”

Brook proud of team’s effort through season
Loss in first round of playoffs stings, but Warriors captain reflects on positives from season Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
Josh Brook might have been a few year removed from the rugged rearguard and Warriors captain he has become but he is a player to be proud of throughout his career with the Warriors. An emotional Brook stepped before the cameras after the Tribe’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Saskatoon Blades on Thursday night – which gave Saskatoon a 4-0 sweep in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarter-final. “We played great; it’s tough ending the season. It’s emotional but everyone battled hard and I can’t say enough about this team,” said Brook. “They persevered and everyone improved so much; it was great. “We had a great group of guys, no one thought we could do what we did this year, but we believed and it’s emotional to have it come to an end… I can’t say enough about the guys in that room.” Brook, who was selected fourth overall by Moose Jaw in the 2014 Bantam Draft, has almost certainly played his last game in a Warriors uniform. In fact, it’s likely the 19-year-old Roblin, Man. product will be playing pro-
Warriors captain Josh Brook knocks Saskatoon’s Riley McKay to the ice during first period action from Game 4. fessional hockey in the very near future – the Montreal Canadiens, who chose Brook in the second round, 56th overall two summers ago, are all but certain to assign
him to a farm team in the coming days. Wherever he ends up, that team will be getting a player coming off a career year. Brook led all defencemen in scoring with 16 goals and 75 points while going plus24 in the process. That capped an impressive career that saw him rack up 31 goals, 126 assists and 157 points in 204 games. For all his on-ice success, though, it’s the people that Brook will remember most from his time in Moose Jaw. “It meant everything,” he said when asked about his memories of his four years with Moose Jaw. “The city took me in when I was 16 and I can’t say enough about the fans here, the people, the organization, the coaching staff, everyone I met in my time in Moose Jaw. They’ve all been awesome.” Brook will still have some Western Hockey League business to attend to in the near future, as he’s in line for some league hardware as the Eastern Conference nominee for the Bill Hunter Memorial Trophy as the WHL’s top defenceman.
Langan looks back on stellar season, career with Warriors Tribe leading scorer and Player of the Year suits up for final game in Moose Jaw Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
Other than a scoring outburst prior to the Christmas break, Tristin Langan hadn’t put up a tremendous amount of points in his career, finishing with 16 goals and 42 points in 2017-18. As a former ninthround WHL Bantam Draft pick, he headed into his overage season and put together one of the most impressive single season improvements not only in team history, but in the history of the Western Hockey League. He scored 53 goals, 60 assists and 113 points to finish second in league scoring – a stunning 71 point improvement from one year earlier. His showing played no small part in the Warriors’ impressive campaign as they not only avoided the fate of other elite teams from the previous season, they put together another 40-win season while setting a new team record for road wins in the process. So while the team’s first-round loss to the Saskatoon Blades stung, it came with the pride that the team had overachieved in many eyes, and that he was a key part of that success. “It’s a tough feeling, especially since it’s my last year and it ending that way

proud of all these guys in the room. All season long, everyone doubted us and no
one thought we’d make the playoffs, but they all did a good job and I’m proud of them.” The final game of the series was typical of the entire four-game set – close and hard-hitting, with goals coming at a premium. “It’s tough getting swept in the playoffs like that, but in the regular season we broke the away record and no one thought we’d ever do that,” he added. “It’s a great bunch of guys in there and everyone works hard, they all played great and there’s a bright future for this club.” With his overage season officially behind him, Langan took the opportunity to thank the team he’d been a part of for the past five seasons. “I wouldn’t want to spend it anywhere else,” he said. “I’ve been here more than four years, I was drafted here and been around all these guys for so long, I grew up here and became a man. I’d just like to thank everyone, all the coaches for what they did for me here, Tim, Alan, Learsy and Kinger, you can’t ask for a better group of guys to help you develop and I’m thankful for it.”

Warriors season comes to an end with Game 4 loss
Tribe bow out of Western Hockey League playoffs in first round after series defeat to Saskatoon Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
There’d been a lot of bad breaks for the Moose Jaw Warriors in their Eastern Conference quarter-final series with the Saskatoon Blades, but few were tougher than the ultimate one. Saskatoon’s Kristian Roykas-Marthinsen put a harmless-looking shot on net from a hard angle with 4:36 gone in overtime, only to have the puck bounce off Warriors defenceman Jett Woo’s skate and past goaltender Adam Evanoff to give the Blades a 4-3 win in Game 4 on Mar. 27 at Mosaic Place. The goal gave the Blades a four-games-to-none victory in the best-of-seven series. “I’m really proud of our guys,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter. “We’re at a different phase of what they’re trying to do and we’re trying to do, but saying all that it was a close series and we had a chance to win games, we just didn’t find a way for whatever reason. “But I’m really proud of our team, really proud of the year we had and the way they played for each other. They played the right way, they didn’t cheat and embellish things and they played hard and honest hockey.” The Blades now advance to face the Prince Albert Raiders in the second round after the Raiders defeated Red Deer 6-4 to finish off their series in four games.
Keenan Taphorn scored the Warriors’ first goal midway through the second, taking a pass while wide open in the slot and beating Nolan Maier with a shot low to the blocker. That goal broke a string of commanding play by the Blades and was the Warriors first real scoring chance in over half a period. It gave the Tribe some momentum, but wouldn’t last, as Kirby Dach tipped home a centering pass from the top of the crease with 2:45 remaining in the period to make it 2-1 Saskatoon. Kyle Crnkovic had given the Blades a 1-0 lead late in the first period. Tracey had a shot to tie the game in the literal last second of the third, but his shot went just past Maier’s outstretched right pad and wide of the net. Evanoff turned aside 37 shots in taking the loss, Maier stopped 22 shots. The Warriors were 0-for-3 on the power play, Saskatoon’s lone goal in five chances came on Gerlach’s marker.
Blades 4, Warriors 3 OT The game looked to be on the way to a 3-2 Blades win in regulation when Kirby Dach scored on a power play with 4:25 remaining and Warriors captain Josh Brook took a double minor on the play, essentially leaving the The Warriors’ Josh Brook and Saskatoon’s Eric Tribe shorthanded the rest of the game.

Food Bank changing with the times Matthew Gourlie
The Moose Jaw & District Food Bank is now offering kids snack bags to give to families for school lunches. (photo courtesy Moose Jaw & District Food Bank)
The Moose Jaw & District Food Bank is always looking for new ways to better serve its clients. With that in mind, the Food Bank announced that they are now accepting e-transfers and have started a new “kids snack bags” programs. “I like to tour other food banks and I went to the Kamloops Food Bank; I noticed that one of the projects that they have there are these kids snack bags,” said Deann Little, assistant manager/development manager for the Moose Jaw & District Food Bank. “For each child in a household they get a bag of snacks. We often have parents asking for snacks that they can send with their kids for school and kids are always hungry, of course, too.” The snack bags contain items like pudding/fruit cups, granola bars, crackers, cookies and fruit snacks. Little said that the Food Bank is always looking for ways to make it easier for the community to support them. They accept cash, cheques and online donations and can now accept e-transfers. There is a “donate now” button on their Facebook page. “You have to change and grow with the times,” Little said. “For the longest time, we just accepted cash or cheques here and then we ended up getting connected with CanadaHelps, so on our website we can accept various forms of payment that way. A lot of people are doing e-transfers now, so we improved and went up to that.”
For the Food Bank, cash donations come in handy when it comes to purchasing dairy products. “We helped 1,542 families last year and so we like to be able to give households who have school-aged children milk. It’s a good source of calcium and protein and nutrients that are necessary for them,” Little said. “As well, eggs are a fantastic source of protein. We try to get as many eggs as possible, but there are times where there are funds that don’t allow that to happen. So we’re trying to increase the monetary donations that come in so we can continue doing that.” Little notes that they have been short of making their budget over the course of time and looking for new ways to increase monetary funding. While money is tight at the Food Bank, Little said their food levels are doing well. “We just had a big fundraiser from Dance Images by B.J. that brought in 1,466 pounds of food on Sunday,” Little said in reference to the dance group’s annual Dance for Hunger weekend, “There’s some other food drives that are going on and that all helps. No matter the size, whether it’s big or small, every single one helps to keep our shelves filled. The more we get, the more we can hand out to those that are struggling in our community.”
SGI adds new sex designation option for licenses By Larissa Kurz
Saskatchewan residents can now mark their sex on their driver’s license as either M, F, or X — the new third option designates that sex is unspecified. The option is open to any resident of any age upon request, and those wishing to change their designation on their ID in lieu of this announcement can do so at no charge. The change requires no documentation and can be done at any authorized motor license issuer. The change falls in line with the 2018 rul-
ing that required the Government of Saskatchewan issue birth certificates without a sex designation, and SGI felt that as a government-issued ID provider, the X designation was a relevant addition. Joe Wickenhauser, executive director of Moose Jaw Pride, is glad to see the changes and to hear that they are free to have made, with no documentation required. “It’s an important step in the right direction, and it certainly makes it easier for

people who want to change their gender marker to ‘unspecified’ on their driver’s license,” said Wickenhauser. Wickenhauser also noted that the new option isn’t quite the same as the changes made to the Vital Statistics Act regarding birth certificates. “On their birth certificate, people can have the whole category of gender and sex completely removed, whereas for SGI, they still have the category and are giving people the option of M, F, or X,” said Wickenhauser. “So, while I think that is an important step in the right direction, it does fall short of some of the other changes that we’ve seen happen with Vital Stats.”
The Moose Jaw Pride centre is pleased to see the new option for sex designation. Saskatchewan is not the first province in Canada to change policy in this way, following Alberta, Ontario, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Short story collection about search of identity honoured provincially Matthew Gourlie
Who am I? It’s a simple question with a myriad of complicated answers. “Indigenous identity is complicated and it’s messy. And for some reason I wanted to write fiction about it,” said Lisa Bird-Wilson. Bird-Wilson’s first short story collection, Just Pretending, was Saskatchewan’s Book of the Year in 2014 as the author earned four Saskatchewan Book Awards. Now, her book has been selected by the Saskatchewan Library Association to be its 2019 One Book, One Province selection. One Book, One Province is a province-wide community reading initiative that aims to increase literacy and to create a reading culture by providing opportunities for residents to become more socially engaged in their community through a shared story. Bird-Wilson’s book tour for One Book, One Province brought her to the Moose Jaw Public Library. “The theme for this year’s One Book, One Province is identity. When thinking about identity, I learned the Cree word miskâsowin. My understanding of that word is that the concept it embodies is finding one’s origin, one’s centre, one’s identity and one’s belonging and also the value in doing that. In many ways this book is about miskâsowin,” Bird-Wilson explained. “The characters are often searching for their identities and they’re searching for belonging. Many have been adopted out or they’ve given up children themselves or are otherwise estranged from their origin and roots.” Bird-Wilson is a Cree-Métis author who has also published a non-fiction history titled: An Institute of Our Own: A History of the Gabriel Dumont Institute, as well as The Red Files, a collection of poetry. She also read from a book just completed, but as of yet an unpublished collection of related short stories. For Just Pretending, it took her time to find the proper vehicle for what she was trying to convey about her search for identity. “I really wrote this book — at least in the beginning — out of an intense longing and a deep, deep desire to know who I was,” Bird-Wilson said. “As an adopted, Indigenous person this was really important for me. I think that when I talk about that longing and desire, I don’t think that’s an Indigenous thing, I don’t think that’s an
things up and say: ‘This is a book about lousy mothers and it’s a book about lousy fathers and it’s a book about lousy children.’ Which is a little tongue-in-cheek.” There is humour in Bird-Wilson’s description of her work and within the work itself, but there is also deep loss and pain from mothers who lost their children and children who grew up without their birth parents and numerous other characters navigating their way through their lives. Bird-Wilson spoke about how court decisions have not only had a large impact on the Indigenous experience in Canada but also in how they define themselves. As an example of the lasting effects of a legal ruling, she noted that before 1985, First Nations women lost their status if they married a man who was not registered as a Status Indian and their children also lost their status. Not only did they and their children lose their connection to their language and culture, but they also became “persona Lisa Bird-Wilson read from her book Just Pretend- non grata” in their own community. ing at the Moose Jaw Public Library as part of the “These legal rulings and these regulations, they impact Saskatchewan Library Association’s One Book, One our connections to culture; they impact how we are connected to the land that we come from; they impact our Province initiative.

Where lation, of course, we’re also reverberating from those do I come from? Where do I belong? It’s a question we violent acts of colonialism like Residential Schools, like language stripping, banned cultural practices, removal can all ask and we can all relate to. “That longing and desire was so profound for me and of children, forced adoption — the assimilation agenda. yet I found it really difficult to express.

Crop input retailer: beware of BS products on the market By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express
EXPRESS The world record canola yield, grown in the United Kingdom, was developed applying two-thirds the amount of nitrogen fertilizer expected by agronomists. A Saskatchewan crop input retailer says that U.K. farmers increased the yield through better plant health and photosynthesis in his canola field. Saskatchewan farmers can get “some pretty amazing yields” by a focus on soil health and plant health, Brad Hanmer, CEO of Synergy AG, told an RBC farm meeting in Moose Jaw. Plants are low in natural photosynthesis efficiency, ranging from three per cent to
15 per cent efficiency. A one per cent increase in soil and plant health will produce great results, he said. Nitrogen fertilizer provides the energy consumed by billions of microbial soil bacteria that represents yield increases but “we are killing the bacteria” with chemical fertilizer and farm practices. Although nitrogen fertilizer provides the energy for plant growth, high salt content — up to 25 per cent — in the fertilizer kills microbes that transfer energy to the plant and reduce intake of the 17 minerals critical to plant development. Every farm’s soil health is unique and requires localized agronomic knowledge to develop best soil and plant health. Products from the four major chemical companies don’t offer that kind of local-
ized assessment, he said. Biological product applications are the solution but Hammer cautioned against buying some products on the market. When a salesperson wants a farmer to try a new product, Hanmer says the farmer needs to be skeptical and ask: What is it? What will it do? and where is the independent third-party research supporting it? “Beware of the BS out there!” The CEO is keen on a new biological fertilizer called Crystal Green, made from human excrement, with high phosphate content and a low salt content. About 70 per cent of Saskatchewan soil is phosphate deficient. Hanmer said his comments are all based on the availability of water. “Without rain we have nothing.”
Headquartered in Govan (population 216), north of Regina, Synergy AG has stores in Govan, Kronau, Lumsden, Balcarres, Yorkton, Pense and Provost, Alberta. The company plan is based on “filling the vacuum of areas underserved by independent ag retailers.” Independent retailer numbers have declined with buyouts of dealers over several decades. With major chemical companies down to four from 17, he said they have huge budgets for research and new products. Some “cool stuff” down the road includes gene editing that can tell a plant to sink roots deeper for water and nanotechnology. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Workplace injury rates increased only slightly
Saskatchewan employers seem to be implementing health and safety precautions in the workplace that are keeping injury rates from increasing too much in the past year. By Larissa Kurz
by Wanda Smith
Recent numbers released from the Saskatchewan Worker’s Compensation Board reports that the total injury rate for 2018 was 5.44 per 100 workers, a 3.6 percent increase from last year. This increase, however, does not seem indicative of the state of workplace safety overall in the province; through health and safety prevention efforts, 88% of Saskatchewan employers achieved Mission: Zero, which means they reported no workplace injuries or fatalities whatsoever. The release noted that an increase in injury rates in 2018 could predict an increase in rates in 2019, and that employers will need to continue being diligent with workplace safety procedures. The most alarming statistic reported in the WCB’s report is the 48 fatalities reported in 2018, a 78% increase from the year before — although 2017 saw the lowest number of fatalities in the past 15 years. The majority of fatalities were caused by occupational diseases and vehicular collisions, which WorkSafe Saskatchewan is targeting as an area for improvement. The WCB has also paired with SGI to share information and determine the cause of vehicle-related accidents. “Keeping our workplaces safe is a shared responsibility,” said WCB Chairperson Gord Dobrowolsky in the release. “We can only achieve Mission: Zero when everyone works together. We will keep working with employers, workers and partners until we achieve zero injuries and zero fatalities.”
Agricultural Producers Assoc. of Sask. (APAS) offers members disability insurance Saskatchewan farmers are 3X more likely to lose time due to injuries compared to any other industry in the province. APAS and the Co-operators and The Edge Benefits are partnering together to offer APAS members income protection and business overhead expense coverage in the event of an injury. “Even though we encourage producers to take every safety precaution, accidents do still happen, and we want to make sure that our members are protected,” says Todd Lewis, APAS president. The Canadian Agricultural Safety Association calls farming a ‘dangerous occupation’ and estimates that agriculture is the fourth most hazardous industry in Canada. “People typically think of insurance as a way of protecting their physical assets like equipment,” says

Good ‘Ol Days When everything’s falling apart, what holds it together? Life-altering situations such as a vehicle or work accident, miscarriage, a move, death of a spouse, or loss of limb or job can all account for life falling apart. The normalcy of life, no matter how dysfunctional or functional it was, is no more. Routines are thrown off kilter and there’s no bottom to the pit you may find yourself in. Ironically, the only real thing that never changes is that change is constant. You can bet on change to be your lifelong partner whether you like it or not. My parents often went for coffee with their friends when Sis and I were kids. They would gather around the kitchen table with a cup of black coffee and spend hours laughing and would often fondly share stories of the good ‘ol days. I used to think my parents and the adults I was around were so old but looking back, they were only mid to late 30’s... which puts me a whole decade older than that now. Admittedly, once I’d moved past the 20th year anniversary of my high school graduation, I, too, began to think of those days with fond recall. Sis used to sing a song at Cowboy Church called “Grandpa, Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Ol’ Days.” Written by Jamie O’Hara and recorded and released in January 1986 by The Judds, American country music duo, this song mourns the demise of traditional values being abandoned for “progress.” How true is that? Interestingly, this song became a Number One hit on the “Billboard” magazine Hot Country Singles chart. I believe it was the cry of the heart of the countries; USA and Canada. It is even truer today, some 33 years later. So many times, I wonder how I am to navigate in this world, presently. It is a challenging time to raise children. It is a challenging time to have traditional values. It is a challenging time to cling to what is good and abhor what is evil. It is challenging to even determine what is good and what is evil; the lines are blurred by a desensitized media and mainstream culture that has wandered so far away from the foundation this nation was built upon and our ancestors who pioneered this country. “When everything’s falling apart, what holds it together?” There is no question in my mind, we must go back to the very truths of the Word of God and build our lives on the solid rock of Jesus. His Word, no matter how much it has been hated or tried to be removed from sectors of society and even nations, it still stands the test of time! His Word remains. His Word is relevant even for this day. His Word never changes. His Word is faithful and will always work. God holds everything together. He is the Alpha (beginning) and the Omega (ending). He knows what is coming down the pipe and He says... stay fixed on Me. Build your house on the Solid Rock. Trust in My unfailing love. I (Jesus) will never change and will never leave you. “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation (trouble and sorrows); but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”John 16:33 Be encouraged, dear readers! Your “normal” may have been rocked. Your life may be falling apart. But, be of good cheer, He is holding you in the palm of His hand and will hold your world together.

REGIMBALD Millie Olga Regimbald (née: Chubak), aged 91 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Monday, March 4th, 2019 at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. Millie was born to the late Michael and Rosalie (Krasna) Chubak on February 14th, 1928 in Rivers, MB. After high school, Millie remained in Rivers and worked as a switchboard operator for the town. At a dance hall one weekend she met a “tall, dark and handsome” military man, Gaston ‘Reg’ Regimbald, who became the love of her life. They were married on July 16th, 1953 and were married for 49 years before Reg passed away on December 12th, 2002. After the marriage, Millie embarked on a journey as a military wife, a life which wasn’t always easy. The family had to move every few years and as a result Millie had to pull up roots time and time again. One thing that remained constant throughout her life was her piano, which came along with the family for every move. Millie loved to play the piano. She played with her whole heart and soul and you could feel the passion in each and every note. She also loved to dance and sing. Despite the many moves throughout her early life, Millie made many lifelong friends. She was able to finally settle down in Moose Jaw when her husband retired from the military in 1974. She enjoyed her ‘golden’ years and loved her home. She also adored her grandchildren and they brought her much joy. She was predeceased by her parents, Michael and Rosalie; husband, Gaston, and brother, Joseph. Millie is survived by her children: Cynthia (Harv) Rasmussen of Campbell River, BC, Carol (Lee) McNee of Edmonton, AB, and Rosemary (Keith) Schick of Moose Jaw, SK; grandchildren: Kurtis Rasmussen, Erik and Adam Schick; great-grandchildren, Evelyn and Jacob Rasmussen; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. The Funeral Service was held on Saturday, March 9th, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 1064 3rd Ave NW, Moose Jaw, SK. Father Hector Seville officiated and interment has taken place in Rosedale Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Millie’s name may be made to Parkinson Canada, 610 Duchess St, Saskatoon, SK S7K 0R1. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. James Murdock, Funeral Director 306693-4550 www.moosejawfuneralhome.com

She taught us a love of reading, and she taught Sunday School, led Explorers & coached fastball, always encouraging the children to be the best they could be at whatever they chose.

Decorating it with her painted ornaments, birdhouses and other projects they designed built and painted together in their retirement.

NDP address concerns at town hall meeting By Larissa Kurz MLA Cathy Sproule presented a summary of the most recent Saskatchewan Party scandals in a public forum on Mar. 26 to a room of approximately 75 people. Sproule, NDP representative for Saskatoon Nutana and critic of various projects including the Global Transportation Hub, detailed the concerns the NDP Party has about the land deal that surrounded the acquisition of where the Regina Bypass is currently located. The bulk of the presentation discussed the unanswered questions regarding the GHB deal, arguing that the Regina Bypass project was a biased venture from its conception. The land was promised to house a number of companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; operations but has fallen short, with no new tenants since 2016, said Sproule. She also touched on the problems surrounding the Carbon Capture project, the EHealth scandal, the problem with SaskBuilds handling land procurement for government projects, and the recent news regarding the Brandt building project in Wascana Park.

MLA Cathy Sproule discussed the issues the NDP Party has with the GTH land deal scandal, among other topics.
pressed agreement with the statement that the Sask Party has poured money into a project that seemed unneeded and questioned what the NDP Party plans to do about the issue of government spending. Stacey Landin, of the Moose Jaw Wakamow NDP Constituency Association, was pleased with the turnout for the event. She thinks forums such as this are important for Moose Jaw as they create a space for people to learn and be social while sharing knowledge about relevant
issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can read about them, we can hear little clips on the news, but to hear it more comprehensively is important, and it think to hear it from a human is kind of important and helpful,â&#x20AC;? said Landin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for Moose Jaw voters to hear things in a space where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re wanting to learn more, and I think its a really important thing that we do to make sure people understand things that are going on.â&#x20AC;?
