Canada Day celebrations in Crescent Park will be bigger and better for 2019. New events, more performers and even an expanded fireworks show will make for a busy and fun day in and around the city. “Things are coming together really nicely for this year’s Canada Day, mostly thanks to the Moose Jaw Kinsmen’s involvement, they’re sponsoring the entire event this year,” said Tourism Moose Jaw executive director Jacki L’Heureux-Mason. “What we are doing will be a bit of fundraising and encouraging our local businesses to help them. But it’s what they do well and it’s enabled us to focus on putting on the best event that we can.” One main bonus over last year is many of the games and other activities have already been purchased, meaning that the Kinsmen investment can go to other areas of entertainment – including the fireworks show from Hamilton Flats that evening. Things will kick off with the Notoriously Canadian Cabaret on June 30 from the Crushed Can Sports Bar, featuring performances by the 86’s and Ray Rawlyk, a best Canadian costume contest, trivia and many other activities through the night. “It’s going to be a lot of fun… one of the things we heard over the years is that there isn’t a lot for the adults to do, it’s all family focussed, so we thought this is a good way to combine fundraising with an adult-focussed event to ring in Canada Day,” L’Heureux-Mason said. Things get going early on Canada Day itself, beginning with the annual pancake breakfast at the Cosmo Centre beginning at 8 a.m. before moving over to Crescent Park.
The day will begin there at 11 a.m. at the amphitheatre with Annie MacLeod singing O’Canada and then performing a set, leading a wide selection of artists performing on stage through the day. That will include a newcomer this year, children’s entertainer Smilin’ Rylan, who will take the stage at 2 p.m. One of the most popular events last year -- the Moose Jaw Co-Op pie-eating contest -- will take place at 5 p.m. The Living Library will be in the park throughout the day featuring groups from many organizations in the city offering a look at what they have to offer.
Returning will be one of the biggest hits last year, J.J. Soccer, while Control Jiu Jitsu and Moose Jaw Minor Football will be two of the new groups on site. The day will wrap up with the fireworks show at dusk, with things likely getting underway around 10:15 p.m. “It was extremely busy down in the Flats last year, we have a safe zone that’s clearly marked that we don’t allow people into, but we could see the lights across the valley from South Hill, so it was a pretty good show.”

All aboard! Southern Prairie Railway open for the season Scott Hellings
Looking for a fun family activity? Consider making the drive to Ogema, home of the Southern Prairie Railway. The popular train has returned for its eighth season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a really good turnout; we had the kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun train in the morning and that was sold out,â&#x20AC;? said Carol Peterson, board chair of the Ogema Heritage Railway Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quite a few of the robbery trains are sold out as well.â&#x20AC;? There are several different types of train experiences, said Carol Peterson, board chair of the Ogema Heritage Railway Association. The robbery and kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun trains prove to be the most popular. During the robbery train, riders on horseback will approach and board the train. They will then â&#x20AC;&#x153;robâ&#x20AC;? the train. The kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s train includes face painting and balloon animals, fun activities, along with lunch and cake. There is also the settlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supper train, which includes a meal with â&#x20AC;&#x153;all the prairie fixings, like beef, baked po-

tatoes, different salads, and homemade pies and homemade cowboy biscuits.â&#x20AC;? Other options include the heritage train, along with the prairie pitchfork fondue train, which includes a meal. There is also the rum runner train. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a roaring 20s one and quite a few people dress up in the flapper dresses and the guys dress up as gangsters. We have an Italian supper and you get robbed on the way out to supper by Bonnie and Clyde type people.â&#x20AC;? All of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;stolenâ&#x20AC;? goods taken during the robbery and rum runner train rides are donated to STARS Air Ambulance and the Saskatchewan Cancer Society. New this year is the Christmas in September train. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought I would try Christmas in September,â&#x20AC;? said Peterson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can wear your favourite Christmas sweater and get your pictures taken with Santa so you can use that for your Christmas card.â&#x20AC;? Southern Prairie Railway has become a very important
part of the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are different things that have started up because of the train. We have Candyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catering â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she has a food truck now and she does the catering for the pitchfork fondue train and for the settlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supper. We have a lady who started a bed and breakfast and we have another lady who set up an ice cream shop here in town. It all spins off,â&#x20AC;? said Peterson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The existing businesses get people going by too and they will stop by and get a coffee, or pop, or a meal.â&#x20AC;? To purchase tickets, visit www.southernprairierailway. ca. Simply choose your train ride and select your number of tickets. Prices vary depending on the ride you are choosing. You can also purchase tickets at the train station, providing seats are available. Ogema is located approximately 150 km southeast of Moose Jaw. The train operates from now until September 28.

A Time for Summer Celebrations

Warren Michelson, MLA
There is a lot of excitement this time of year as we approach the end of the school year, graduations, the Canada Day long weekend, sidewalk days and the air show at 15 Wing. School is out for the summer holidays this week, and our high school commencement ceremonies are underway. Over 300 students will graduate from high school in Moose Jaw this year. Our graduates feel a sense of pride as they accomplish this goal and look forward to the opportunities ahead. These young men and women have much to offer our province as they prepare themselves in the future. On behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan, I congratulate you, commend you on your accomplishments and encourage you to continue to follow your

dreams. Key goals of the Ministry of Education are to increase graduation rates and to reduce the difference in graduation rates between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students. Our schools and education partners have been working hard to achieve these goals and give all of our students the chance to succeed. We have increased K-12 operating funding by 34 per cent since 2007 compared to an enrolment growth of 14 per cent. We have added more than 1,100 teachers and support staff, and invested in new schools and school renovations. The planning for a new school here in Moose Jaw is continuing as meetings are on going. The dedicated efforts of education professionals and parents turn these investments into success for students. Statistics show that graduation rates are steadily rising and in 2018 were higher than any results for at least the past twenty years. Thank you to all education staff, administrators, school board members and families for their hard work in helping our students, and especially our graduates, succeed in their education. In true Moose Jaw fashion, our community has come together to put on a great celebration for Canada Day. The day will start early for those in the Moose Jawg Charity

Road Race. This event has raised over $134,000 for the Moose Jaw Health Foundation since it started 17 years ago. I enjoy another long time Canada Day tradition, the pancake breakfast at the Cosmo Centre. Thank you to the Canada Day committee for organizing the entertainment in Crescent Park, with something for everyone and a variety of food vendors. While in Crescent Park, we can also browse through ParkArt to support the Moose Jaw Art Museum. The Western Development Museum is hosting special Canada Day events. The Kinsmen Club has generously sponsored the 2019 Canada Day Fireworks. Thank you to all who have contributed in helping Moose Jaw celebrate Canada on Canada Day. These great ways to celebrate help remind us of the many advantages we enjoy as Canadians. We have universal education and health care. We have freedom to choose our work and our faith practices. We enjoy some of the most beautiful natural spaces in the world. And the diversity of cultures adds so much richness to our lives. This summer as you participate in celebrations, travel, or spend time around the water, please keep safety in mind as much anticipated celebrations can turn tragic. Stay safe and have a wonderful summer. Happy Canada Day!

Tunnels of Moose Jaw looking forward to summer
Local tourist attraction holds special industry night to showcase business Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Tunnels of Moose Jaw recently held a service industry event that included tours, a sampling of Prairie Bee Meadery wine and even an afterparty at the Cornerstone Bar & Grill, all with the goal of exposing more businesses to what the city has to offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened in other cities but we thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d try it here,â&#x20AC;? said Kelly Carty with Tunnels of Moose Jaw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hotels, restaurants, any sort of a tourist destination, bring them all together so they can understand whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available in our city.â&#x20AC;? That includes the Tunnels themselves, which even with their notoriety might come as a bit of a surprise to those not in the know. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here, but they might not necessarily know there are two tours, they might not know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re open every day of the year except Christmas Day,â&#x20AC;? Carty explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when you experience it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more excited about it, like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;that was so much fun you have to goâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like you eat at a good restaurant and you tell everyone to eat there, you want good word of mouth. So we want to have people enjoy themselves and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember it.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of bootlegginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and underground hijinks taking place on a regular basis at the tunnels, to the point they even have to expand their staff at this time of year. Carty said they are expanding their retail products and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really busy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of young people come and see us so May and June, there is a lot of school groups. The energy is high and they have so much fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then this time of year, our staff doubles; we have lots of university students and high school students, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty busy. From the end of May until the end of August and into September, we see a lot of people coming through.â&#x20AC;? The Tunnels are a major draw for tourists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People from all over the world come here because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of them; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right on the Trans Canada as they make their Trans Canada trips,â&#x20AC;?

APAS presents drought assistance plan to governments
THURSDAY, JUNE 27
OFF REGULAR PRICED MERCHANDISE! SOME RESTRICTIONS MAY APPLY
1251 Main Street â&#x20AC;˘ (306) 691-0495
By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
Faced with poor growing conditions, the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) has asked the federal and provincial governments to help with drought conditions. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drought Monitor has already classified large areas of the province as extreme, severe and moderate drought, according to APAS. Only 21 per cent of crop land and 17 per cent of pasture and hay land is rated with adequate moisture. In the southwest, only 20 per cent of pasture and hay land has adequate moisture. Hay producers across the south have pretty well written off the hay crop. Except for the Cypress Hills, an area around Rockglen, and the Weyburn-Estevan region, all of southern Saskatchewan had experienced less than two inches of precipitation to June 10. This is the third consecutive year many producers have below average precipitation. APAS has given government a five-step plan to assist producers. â&#x20AC;˘ Start the AgriRecovery safety net assessment plan. â&#x20AC;˘ Have crop insurance expedite low yield appraisal, allow salvage for green feed offer incentives for green feed crops. â&#x20AC;˘ Temporary fencing funds to full use emergency pastureland assistance with water programs. â&#x20AC;˘ Use vacant lands owned by government and land, parks and crown land, land owned by First Nations, Ducks Unlimited, Nature Saskatchewan and the federal government for grazing. â&#x20AC;˘ Drought assistance and improved coverage under the Agri-Stability program.

School’s out for the summer! I remember the days of summer as a kid without a care in the world. After the last bell rang for summer break, pressure was off to perform scholastically and it was a time to sleep in, enjoy the outdoors, and stay up late to watch movies on tv. Over the few decades since I was a kid able to wile my summers away with activities that Joan Ritchie were popular then, there are EDITOR only a few that still might be a draw for kids nowadays. I was a country kid so life out-of-town was a little more mundane that living in town or the big city…I needed social stimulation and what was the biggest annual thrill?... taking in the fair with my siblings or a friend, without the supervision of my parents…usually the evening hours when the lights and sounds were amplified and satisfied that desire for excitement. The thrill of the rides lasted only as long as the money did back then, but it was all about getting away from the confines of the country for a brief escape, even if only for an evening. The thrill of the rides soon diminished with adulthood. It wasn’t long until the rides gave me headaches and made me nauseous. Traipsing around with my own kids at the fair was a grueling experience, too, but of course, it was what every good parent needed to do in the summer. I couldn’t deprive them of the experience and to this day, the younger son who should have outgrown the draw many years ago continues to be an adrenaline junkie and looks for every opportunity to partake; good thing he has a kid as an excuse to go. And with Moose Jaw’s Hometown Fair happening this past weekend, I am sure the fair continues to be a big draw for kids of all ages and the happening place for fun-seekers. I know that fair food choices have drastically changed over the years, but I wonder if the rides are new and improved, too? Back-in-the-day, food choices included corndogs and corn-on-the-cobb, the best fresh warm Doukhobor Bread slathered with butter, fries, shaved ice cones, deep-fried spudniks and mini donuts…I can’t recall too much else… nowadays palates crave extravagant gourmet choices that stretch the imagination and pocketbook. Rides included the scrambler, the double Ferris wheel, roller coaster, the tilt-a-whirl, and that was about it in my repertoire of experience. Probably not enough to entice the kids of today… And as usual during exhibition days, on Friday and Saturday, rain was pouring down damp-ering plans of fun at the fair! Not really... by the lineup of cars on Tatcher on Saturday, fun was out in full force!
Public Library summer reading programs set up for all ages Larissa Kurz
When you hear the words “summer reading program,” you probably think immediately of school-age kids. But the Moose Jaw Public Library wants you to know that summer reading is for absolutely everyone. The Public Library has set up three tracked reading programs for this summer, targeting readers of all ages — because there is no age limit to the benefits of reading. Children’s Librarian Tina Dolcetti is excited to kick off these programs for the summer, as there are some cool prizes lined up for each program, even the adults. The TD Summer Reading Club is for kids aged 12 and under, and each child who enters will get a log book to keep track of their reading and a bookmark. The more completed log books returned Spending time with a book this summer is well to the Library before the deadline of Aug. 22, the more entries for worth your time, no matter your age. great prizes at the end of the summer. The Library will also have their own books of activities for families to take home and do together — fun, low-cost things to keep kids and parents learning together. The YA Scratch n’ Win Summer Challenge is for teens and tweens, ages 10 and up, and features a number of challenges readers have to complete for a scratch card and entry into the grand prize draw. This program will wrap up on Aug. 23. There are a number of great prizes for these programs: a coding robot, a paintball excursion, swim passes, board games, a spikeball set, to name a few. The Adult Summer Reading Challenge will have eight challenges throughout the summer, each one completed equaling a ballot to win a Kobo E-Reader. The list of challenges will be available at the Information Desk until Aug. 10. Dolcetti recommends that parents have their kids do at least 15 minutes of reading every day in the summer, to help them maintain their literacy skills and make the September return to school a little bit easier for everyone. At the end of the summer, the Library will also be hosting the Reptile Zoo on Aug. 24, as a wind-up for the summer reading programs and a fun event for those interested in the scaly, toothy, and slithery.
Library hosting Magic: The Gathering program Scott Hellings
Fantasy fans rejoice! The Moose Jaw Public Library has a new program on the popular Magic: The Gathering card game. The program will be held once again on Wednesday, June 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the library. It is sure to appeal to longtime players and newbies alike. “We are trying new programs to see what people are interested in. D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) was pretty popular and we thought that Magic would be easier for the library to run and we thought it would be interesting for people who don’t get to play very often,” explained assistant head librarian Shevaun Ruby. You won’t need to bring anything with you and you don’t need to know how to play in order to participate. “We are going to have a welcome deck set up. Wizards of the Coast sent out welcome packs, which are basically 30-card intro decks that will teach you how to play the game,” said Ruby. “We will tell people the basics of the game; it is a pretty complicated game but it is really easy to learn at the same time. As you get more into it, obvi-
LETTERS TO THE
ously you get into more of the nitty gritty in terms of the rules, but this will be a simplistic introduction. We have also bought eight challenger decks that are full, competitive play decks that people can try out.” Of course, you are welcome to bring your own decks as well. The event is for anyone over the age of 13 and adults can participate, too. Can’t make it out on June 26th? You will have several other opportunities to participate this summer. The other dates for the program are: • Wednesday, July 10 • Wednesday, July 24 • Wednesday, August 7 • Wednesday, August 21 No registration is required.

Jagmeet Singh’s NDP has proven itself to be a vehement opponent of Canadian energy. Its radical policies and constant flip-flopping are a major threat to Canada’s prosperity. It’s clear the NDP would destroy our energy industry, and massively raise taxes on Canadian families. For example, the NDP is against pipeline construction, and Jagmeet Singh has even said that the future of Canada cannot involve the consumption of any oil or gas. It’s shameful to hear a party leader attack our energy sector which employs so many hardworking Canadians. Meanwhile, Singh supports the job-killing Liberal Carbon Tax, opposes the Trans Mountain Expansion, and keeps flip-flopping on his support for LNG. These radical policies would eliminate jobs, hurt our industries and take more money out of the pockets of hardworking Canadians. While the NDP promotes anti-energy rhetoric, Canada’s Conservatives, led by Andrew Scheer, have a strong plan to support our energy industry. We will build pipelines, work on an energy corridor, and help families get ahead. Sincerely, Tom Lukiwski, MP

There is still space to register for the five-kilometre and 10-kilometre race; cutoff to register your little racer in the Runt Run was June 14. So far 247 adults have registered for the race, while 40 youths have been entered into the Runt Run, explained organizer Dawn Luhning.

Chief for A Day gives one student a taste of police work Larissa Kurz
The city is in good hands with the first winner of Moose Jaw Police’s Chief for A Day essay contest — 10-year-old Dani Brazeal, from the fifth-grade class at King George Elementary School. Brazeal took first place with her essay, which meant she spent the morning in MJPS Chief Rick Bourassa’s shoes — well, actually in his hat. The contest asked students to explain what they would do to help the city, if they were the police chief for a day. Brazeal chose to focus her essay on the police station itself: she suggested Tim Horton’s for all the officers on special occasions and letting the police dogs in the K-9 Unit off duty once in a while to enjoy some dog-related fun. Brazeal’s enthusiasm is the reason her essay The pair of police chiefs posed towas chosen, admitted Cst.

Provincial Elks groups 90 years strong, but in need of new membership Larissa Kurz
Members from Elks lodges across the province gathered for the 90th Annual Provincial Conference from June 9-12, as a chance to make decisions about the future and catch up with one another. The organization has been doing charity work across this province for over 100 years, donating to a number of local initiatives and to their national charity, providing hearing and speech support for children.
“Volunteers aren’t hard to find. It’s getting people to commit to a group or a lodge, to become a member, that’s the tough part.” - National president Ron Potter
But celebrating at their convention this year, national president Ron Potter took time to note that a younger membership is going to be necessary to keep the camaraderie of the club going. “We need to bring in some other people and some a little bit younger, to keep this

It’s getting people to commit to a group or a lodge, to become a member, that’s the tough part.” “A lot of organizations like ours have bit the dust by trying to ride on their past successes, what they were like 40 years ago,” added Harold Claffey, provincial publicity director. “What’s important is this year and next year, and that’s what we’re trying to focus on.”

Current provincial president Eugene Hartter said his slogan for this year has been “the past, the present and the future” because he sees value in reminiscing the history of the club and using the good memories to entice future members’ interest. The Elks are involved with an incredible amount of national programming, including their low-income housing initiatives unique to Saskatoon and the speech and hearing centres that are helping children in nearly every province. The new hearing testing program for newborns across the province began with an initiative from the Elks, something they are proud to claim. None present could begin to estimate how much the club has donated to their
charities over the years, as the number is too large. But they all emphasized that the feeling from that accomplishment is what makes the Elks so wonderful to be a part of. “That’s the heaviest, most gratifying thing there is, when you can see what you’ve done [to help],” said Potter. The executive director of the Elks of Canada, Kevin McBeth, joined the organization because he experienced first-hand how charities like this one help families. “They change people’s lives, in the snap of a finger. It’s an incredible thing to see. And once you see it, once you understand it, once you get it, it’s pretty hard to ignore,” said McBeth. He finds purpose in the work he does with the Elks, and encourages others to take the step and get involved. “I think our goal is just to try and make sure that more people get a chance to see that, get a chance to feel that, so that they can carry on the tradition,” said McBeth.
The 90th Annual Provincial Convention saw members from the various lodges across Saskatchewan.
Behind the Scenes tours answering kids’ curiosity Larissa Kurz
Have your kids ever asked you, “What does the Mayor do?” or “How do the things in the museum get there?” Or maybe, “What does the back of the stage look like for a play?” The Moose Jaw Public Library has partnered with some notable buildings around the city to answer these burning questions, and a few more as well, with their Behind the Scenes tours. The first-time program will let the kids take a guided tour through a number of cool places and answer their questions about how things work. Rainbow Retro will kick off the tours, on July 4, and will talk about family diversity and Moose Jaw Pride. On July 11, kids can tour City Hall and find out what Mayor Fraser Tolmie does. Saturday mornings — July 13, 20, 27 — are for soccer: out at Kinsmen Field, kids can take part in some fun activities that the Public Library describes as “soccer literacy.” The Wandering Market will have kids making homemade butter on their tour, on July 18, and teaching them about growing food for a market. n Aug. 1, the Tourism Moose Jaw Historic Trolley will take the kids on a ride, talking about the trolley and the history of Moose Jaw. Moose Jaw EMS paramedics will bring over one of their ambulances the morning of Aug. 8, letting the kids see the inside of the live-saving vehicle and ask questions. Later that afternoon, there is a tour through the Mae Wilson Theatre, to learn about acting, theatre, and drama. The Western Development Museum will answer the burning question, “what’s it like to work in a museum?” on Aug. 15 and explain to the kids how exhibits are put together, and who works behind the scenes to make it happen. And, finally, to wrap up the summer, the last tour on Aug. 22 will be through Coteau Hills Creamery, where the kids will learn how to make artisan cheese. All of the Behind the Scenes tours are free, but parents are required to register their kids online beforehand as there will be limited spots available for each tour. For the kids who need their curiosity satisfied, the tours are sure to catch their attention — and parents’ too.

Special ceremony unveils restored Tasinaskawin headstone Members of Black Bull family, historian Papandrea take part in event at Moose Jaw City Cemetery. Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
For more than a century, it was simply a headstone in the Moose Jaw City Cemetery, a non-descript slowly decaying block with faded lettering, like so many others in city graveyards. But this one has a history – and a connection that went all the way back to the Battle of Little Bighorn, or Custer’s Last Stand. The grave belongs to Tasinaskawin Brule, the wife of Chief Black Bull, one of the Lakota Sioux chiefs who played a large role in the famous battle and later moved his tribe into southern Saskatchewan, settling in the Moose Jaw and Wood Mountain areas. Tasinaskawin passed away in 1910, and is the only First Nations person buried in the cemetery. There her remains laid, virtually forgotten until the early 2000s when Warren, Mich.-based historian Ron Papandrea started researching information for what would turn into his book ‘They Never Surrendered’, which chronicled Little Bighorn and the aftermath of the tribes that fought – including Black Bull’s Lakota. It was through his work that Tasinaskawin’s grave was ‘discovered’, leading Papandrea to spearhead a restoration effort that was officially unveiled on Sunday afternoon at the cemetery. Dignitaries from various local groups joined Papandrea and members of the Black Bull family, who travelled all the

And my grandmother (Lillian Black Bull-Straight), she’s a great granddaughter and the last of all her siblings, so we had to bring her out here. “It’s really comforting that people actually

care and wanted to take part in this.” The unveiling included a sage smudge by Eldon Black Bull, aimed at clearing the area of any negative energies and thoughts and to clear the air in order to focus on Tasinaskawin. An offering of wasna – a variant of pemmican – was offered at the gravesite; prayers and speeches were made in the Lakota Sioux language. All with the goal of giving Tasinaskawin’s spirit something she would recognize. “It’s just sharing a little piece of the traditions and history we have,” Black Bull said. The group also presented Papandrea with a Lakota Star quilt and local elder Elizabeth Michalski with a shawl. The honour was especially touching for Papandrea, who has spent many an hour on researching the legacy of Black Bull and history of First Nations in the Moose Jaw area. “I started off at the Custer Battlefield, I was interested in military history and I wanted to know what happened to the natives,” he said by way of explanation. “Five thousand came up to Canada; that was a lot of people at the time and they outnumbered everyone in the area. And they didn’t want to go back to the United States, so they settled around Wood Mountain, where
their descendants are today.” Black Bull and his tribe made their home in and around Moose Jaw and were even part of the Northwest Rebellion, providing mounted scouts for the Canadian Forces. “So he was a Canadian patriot and he’s not recognized,” Papandrea said. “All people recognize is how he went to Batoche, which isn’t true. There are photos of him with the Halifax Battalion that was coming back and camped in Moose Jaw for six weeks… if he had fought against them, he would have been given the Riel treatment – they were hanging people; they were upset.” Revising that misbelief has been a goal of Papandrea’s ever since, beginning with his book, continuing with the grave restoration and moving on into the future – while ideally seeing Moose Jaw do more to embrace their First Nations history. “The Custer Battlefield has 400,000 people a year go to that battlefield, and the Indians that beat Custer moved in here at Moose Jaw and lived here for 30 years,” he said. “That’s the tourist story, that’s what they should be promoting… they could set up teepees and have actors playing the parts of the people who were involved. We know these characters and it’s really interesting.” In order to further his cause, Papandrea plans to donate the star quilt to a local museum, ideally for exhibit in the future alongside other information on the Black Bull tribe. “They really were lost and now they’re not,” he said. “It’s an important thing for them and it’s historic.”

Thoughts flowed free at urinal during Stock Growersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; convention Four of us stood at the urinal relieving ourselves and recycling the morning intake of coffee. We had just heard an expert in air quality tell the Stock Growers convention how a falsely drafted study about cattle methane pollution, equating it with pollution from all trucks, trains and ships, is perpetuated in the media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault,â&#x20AC;? growled one rancher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At leasts this guys on our side,â&#x20AC;? said another. The third boasted â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew all along it was bullâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;.â&#x20AC;? thought: They just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it, but kept my mouth shut. by Ron Walter IThese guys are really passionate about their lifestyle and business. I had a vision of the urinal being ripped off the wall to smack me if I spoke out. The media gets blamed for a lot when it is only the messenger of bad news. In the case of the flawed study equating cow methane with all commercial transportation pollution, the media reported it wrong, but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at fault. The statistical information used came from a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization study â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a pretty authoritative and usually impeccable source. That explains the wide use of the statistics around the globe. Now that the United Nations has admitted the study was flawed, correcting the use is almost impossible as there are so many media and the data is by now all-over social media.
Besides, editors generally do not like to see demands for corrections from people who might have a self-interest like cattle producers. The rancher who was pleased that scientist Frank Mitloehner is on the Stock Growersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side was out in left field. Mitloehner is a scientist who lives by the facts. He saw that the study used a life cycle comparison of cows but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do a life cycle comparison for the commercial transportation, investigated and found the widely-accepted data was flawed. In real science there is no taking sides on issues: the facts speak for themselves. Their attitudes reflect a scary trend of this era in history. A major concern at all levels of society today is the loss of trust; there is a loss of trust in science â&#x20AC;&#x201D; be it in vaccination or climate change. The loss of trust extends, understandably to politicians, who have to lie to get elected to the legal processes in our democracy. The loss of trust has come to food sources as Stock Growersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; president Bill Huber said at one point: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much trust in food anymore.â&#x20AC;? Trust is a key to any society. There must be trust in the legal system, in the administration and the leaders, elected or otherwise. Without trust our society will revert to the dark ages of medieval times. The greatest issue facing leaders today is re-building public trust in our institutions, our leaders and our neighbours. By the way, three of the four washed their hands before returning to the convention. Ron Walter can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bids farewell, happy retirement to beloved caretaker Larissa Kurz
After 33 years with the Holy Trinity School Division, Dwayne Sisetzky is stepping into his retirement shoes at the end of June â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with a cacophony of â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? following him. Sisetzky has been a caretaker at St. Mary School for 30 years and will be missed by staff and students alike. St. Mary barred Sisetsky from their gym, so they could spend almost a week decorating with artwork and goodbye messages for his retirement tea â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a note, card, or drawing from every student at St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was put up around the walls. Dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Sâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Wonderful,â&#x20AC;? Sisetsky really made a connection with the students at the school. Running lunchtime supervision allowed him to get to know the students better and develop inside jokes with them. One message from a student added a â&#x20AC;&#x153;p.s. I spent a lot of time on this,â&#x20AC;? to let Sisetsky know that all the times he told that student to â&#x20AC;&#x153;take your timeâ&#x20AC;? was heard and understood. Sisetsky also fondly remembered how the younger kids

It will be the students he misses most, Sisetsky admits. His career has allowed him to see several generations of students travel through St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; kids whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now become parents and sent their kids to school there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always loved being around the kids and everything. They always make my day,â&#x20AC;? said Sisetsky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you get older, you kind of think, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to kind of go, after youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done caretaking for that long. Like I say, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the kids and staff, but I can come back and visit.â&#x20AC;?
He is looking forward to retirement: to spending time with his family and grandchildren, and working on some projects heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll now have more time for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I work late evenings and do stuff here, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a chance to get away as much as I would have liked to, to be up there with [my grandchildren]. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be nice to get away and enjoy that part,â&#x20AC;? said Sisetsky. And Sisetsky regularily runs into current and past students who know him, and always stop to say hello, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping that continues even into his retirement. All of the hard work Sisetsky put into keeping St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in top shape is greatly appreciated by staff and students alike, and judging by the messages on the wall, Mr. Wonderful will be missed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very emotional, after 30 years with these kids and the staff at the school for that long,â&#x20AC;? said Sisetsky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good feeling, that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looked after and they think about me this much.â&#x20AC;?
Dwayne Sisetsky paused for a photo with some students, after they bombarded him with hugs.

Inaugural charity run for Alzheimer’s a booming success Larissa Kurz
Over 100 people signed up for the first Alzheimer’s 5K or 10K Run/Walk, that took to the trails in Connor Park on June 15 for an important cause. Organizer Sarah Clarke was amazed to see so many people come out and participate, volunteer, donate and sponsor her event. She estimates the proceeds raised were over $5,000, all of which is going directly to the Alzheimer’s Society of Saskatchewan. The idea came from Clarke’s grade eight classroom at Sunningdale Elementary School, when she posed her students with an assignment to create a project they were passionate about. Two students actually went forward and planned their fundraising events — Morgan Capili raised over $3,000 for ALS research with her own charity run, and Makena Simmons raised over $2,000 for the Sandra Schmirler Foundation with a beef-on-a-bun fundraiser. Her students’ dedication inspired Clarke to put on her own event. The cause she chose is one near to her heart, as her grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and recently passed away. This is the first time Clarke has planned

a run such as this, and while it was a daunting and hectic task, she’s already talking about planning next year’s fundraiser. She encouraged people to keep an eye out for details in the future, because the Alzheimer’s Walk/Run will be returning in Spring 2020.
Several local businesses sponsored the run, which meant there were door prizes, gift bags, and snacks that morning. (photo credit: Lori Meyer)

Family Services using donation to revamp Children’s Garden Larissa Kurz
With a generous donation from Conexus, the Moose Jaw Family Services team can finally look into installing a working pathway to the gazebo in the Children’s Garden. The garden is a green space that Young Parent program coordinator Vanessa Schaefer would love to see spruced up for a number of reasons. “One of those services [we offer here] is that we have families that come and visit, where the kids are in foster care,” said Schaefer. “We want to be able to get this into a more green space so that they can come and visit with their families in a nice open area, instead of being stuck in a stuffy room.” Representatives from Conexus — Matthew Sapp, Agriculture Business Solutions area manager, and Dina Holoien, branch manager at the High Street location — stopped by the garden to present Chaefer with the $2,500 cheque on June 17. Schaefer admits the garden isn’t at its usual state of green yet, as the painfully dry weather has offset their spring planting rituals. But with this donation, Shaefer is hoping to get started on the pathway project as soon as possible.
wouldn’t get a chance to do this sort of thing, how to do this sort of thing,” said Tillie. “It’s always great, being able to teach them, because it’s all about sustainability,” said Szwagierczak. “With Owen coming, not only have I learned, but I’m watching as the little guys just get right in there; they copy him and follow him, and it’s so great to watch,” added Schaefer. The garden was built seven years ago, and discussion of upgrading the path into the gazebo has been on the table for about four years.

The perimeter of the garden has been set aside for planting, which has evolved from simply providing healthy veggies to
families into a social gathering of sorts. Parents and kids come in and plant with volunteer Owen Tillie, a student from the University of Saskatchewan College of Horticulture, and MJFS assistant gardener James Szwagierczak. “For myself, it’s super cool to be able to teach the young parents that normally
The gazebo currently has a path marked by wood shavings, but will be getting an upgrade fairly soon.

Retiring 15 Wing pilot and wife presented with Lois Boyle Award For Moose Jaw Express
Pilot and aerobatics performer Capt. Brent Handy and his wife Rebecca were caught by surprise with receiving the Lois Boyle Award for community service, strengthening the bond between 15 Wing and Moose Jaw. The couple thought they were on hand for a presentation to someone else. Rebecca had just told a friend she didn’t like surprises. But they both agreed this one was cool. Until his retirement this week, Brent was a full-time pilot for the RCAF. In both 2015 and 2017, they were instrumental in bringing a much-needed air show to the Moose Jaw region. Their determination and attention to detail inspired others to sign on and bring the first air show to the Moose Jaw municipal airport in 2015. With their leadership, a small group of volunteers was inspired and four weeks later Moose Jaw had an air show again. More than $10,000 was raised to help a pre-teen battle cancer.
15 Wing Fellowship chairman Aaron Ruston presents Brent and Rebecca Handy with the Lois Boyle Award. From left are Wing Commander Col. Denis O’Reilly, and 15 Wing Fellowship members Joyce Walter, Cal Jorstad, Carrie Froehlich and Ron Walter.
Two years later they led a second air show to success. Funds raised from the second air show were injected directly to help military and first responders fight PTSD. In 2018 Brent and Rebecca were instrumental in organizing a gala and air
demonstration at the municipal airport to raise funds for research into a cure for cystic fibrosis, working with a local family to make the event an unqualified success. A similar Soar for Cystic Fibrosis was held in May this year with thousands of dollars raised to help with
research into the disease. “I feel blessed to be able to do something I love and it is positive,” said Brent Handy. “You can tell the character of someone by the work they do when they don’t get anything for it,” commented Col. Denis O’Reilly, 15 Wing Commander. “You didn’t have to do what you did.” Handy retired from the RCAF after 20 years because “I had ticked off all the boxes I wanted to.” Now the couple and their children will start a two-year sailing adventure in a 42-foot boat from Florida around South America. But he will continue performing at air shows during that period. Lois Boyle, administrative assistant to Col. O.B. Philp and co-ordinator of the naming contest for the Snowbirds, mentored student pilots and members of the Snowbirds. She became known as “The Mother of the Snowbirds.”
REFLECTIVE MOMENTS O Canada: standing on guard for thee My recollection of childhood celebrations on Dominion Day don’t readily come to mind. If July 1 fell on a Friday or Monday, then it was likely my Dad would agree to a day of fishing, or at least a journey to Besant Park or Rowan’s Ravine for a time of doing not much of anything. Maybe there was a Joyce Walter game of catch (balls, not fish) and lots of food packed in ice For Moose Jaw Express in an old cooler — fried chicken, potato salad, fresh fruit, sandwiches, cookies and cake, plus coffee and tea and Kool Aid. Because Dad’s oil and gas business was crucial to our family finances, he could not be away from home for long lest he lose customers to Moose Jaw firms eager to enhance their own farm gate delivery business. If we did leave home for more than one night, he always made sure he had someone to babysit the oilshed, and if necessary,
to drive the gas truck for deliveries to farmers’ yards. If our school talked about confederation or Dominion Day and its relevance, I must have dozed for those lessons. It wasn’t until 1967, Canada’s centennial year, that I awoke to a true understanding of why Dominion Day was important and why July 1 was indeed more than a reason to head to the lake. Celebrations that year were intense, with funding available to every community that could put together a parade, a historical display, cooking and canning competitions or ball tournaments played with old fashioned rules. Business for fireworks companies boomed that year. My school class was involved in advance and had displays of essays written about Canada. Mine, I believe, is saved in a box now stored in a dark corner of the basement. Then years later, in 1983, Dominion Day was renamed Canada Day, even after communities in 1974-75 had organized Canada Week or Canada Day committees to promote Canadian unity. And since 1974 and the name change, Moose Jaw has been among communities throughout Canada that hold
special celebrations to acknowledge all the benefits of living in this country, benefits that sometimes are taken for granted, or are assumed to be part of our birthright. Canada is not a perfect country but even with its imperfections, it has so much to offer to all who live here and to those who choose to make it their home. Much has changed since Confederation in 1867 and no doubt more changes will impact the lives of Canadians, wherever they live in the provinces or territories. One thing that has changed several times is the lyrics to our national anthem. When O Canada is sung on July 1 will the majority cling to “in all thy sons command” or will they remember to warble “in all of us command?” I suspect older folks will insert sons in there as a matter of course, while youngsters will adopt the latest version. Regardless, sing at the top of your lungs, salute as the flag goes by and be thankful that we are free to celebrate on yet another July 1. Happy Canada Day.

Hometown Fair Parade 2019 Jason G. Antonio text and photos - Moose Jaw Express
Although it rained earlier in the morning last Thursday, by late afternoon the skies over Moose Jaw were blue, allowing the annual Hometown Fair parade to proceed as planned. The parade began just after 7 p.m., with the Moose Jaw Police Service heading up the procession. For the next hour, colourful floats from dozens of community groups made their way down Main Street. Many of the floats reflected the theme for the year, “Candy Land”. Sukanen Museum floats by.

Canola meal option fits in with pasture drought By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
Cattle producers challenged with drought-stricken pastures might want to consider summer feeding of canola meal in pastures. A University of Saskatchewan trial study feeding heifers concluded canola meal is an acceptable and less costly drought feed supplement, says Dr. Greg Penner, who outlined the trial to the Saskatchewan Stock Growers’ Association convention in Moose Jaw. The trial compared feeding dry distiller’s grain and canola meal. Although canola meal was about six per cent more expensive, the trial showed it was more cost efficient, saving five cents a head per day over distiller’s grain. “That’s quite a nice saving,” said Penner. Canola meal has an advantage with higher protein content and consistency. Dry distiller’s grain varies in consistency depending on the kind of grain used. AGRIMART
The canola product ranges from nine per cent to 11 per cent protein while dry distiller’s grain ranges from five to seven per cent. Much dry distiller’s grain has had fat removed reducing the energy in the feed. Canola meal is better at providing the nine per cent protein ration milking cows and pregnant cows need. He said an alternate option is feeding low grade canola to cattle on pasture. The study found alternate days are the best way to feed canola meal but that causes aggressive feeding with larger animals edging out smaller ones. “When you get a treat every second day feeding will get more competitive.” He suggested separate feeding by animal size. About 10 per cent of the meal is lost by feeding on the ground. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Local crew of superheroes scaling down Regina hi-rise for charity Larissa Kurz
A team of Moose Javians is taking part in a pretty unique charity event for Easter Seals Saskatchewan, one that takes fundraising to new heights. The Drop Zone is an annual fundraiser organized by Sask Abilities that invites teams and individuals to journey to the top of the Hill Tower Center in Regina, and then rappel down the side of the glass tower — which is about 250m to the bottom. This year’s Drop Zone will be hosted once again by Harvard Development’s Hill Tower Centre II in Regina on August 24th, 2019. It’s a feat worthy of a superhero, which is why some participants choose to dress up as their favorite superhero: to up the ante of the experience. Mark Fenton has signed up for his third go at the fundraiser, and this year he’s convinced a few of his friends to join the team. Alongside Fenton, Roxanne Shandera, Pamela Clothier, Abbas Ahmed, and Corey Csada make up The Breakfast
Club. Fenton and Shandera have both participated before, but this is the first time for Clothier, Csada, and Ahmed. Each participant must raise $1,500 to take part, all of which will go towards the Easter Seals programming in the province: Camp Easter Seal, the Summer Fun program, and the Adaptive Technology program. Each program offers needed supports for those who have a disability. The members of The Breakfast Club are all excited to do some good for the Easter Seals. The team has been collecting donations, as well as selling cookies and refreshments at their office. Now, they’re putting together a raffle for two gift certificates for the zip-line at Outdoor Edge Adventure Park in Lumsden. “For every $20 someone donates towards the cause, we’ll put them in for a raffle for some zip lining,” said Csada, adding that perhaps those nervous about rappelling

Fenton encourages everyone to get involved with the Drop Zone, whether by donating or joining the roster of rappellers — for him, the more awareness, the better. It’s not too late to sign up for this year’s event either. The Regina Drop Zone website is the best place to get registered, or to find more information about the event. “You don’t have to be superhuman or in great physical fitness to do this. Anybody can do this,” said Fenton. “It’s a fun way and a different way to raise money for a cause.” The Breakfast Club is still welcoming donations with open arms. Any of the team members can be contacted to donate, as well as the Drop Zone website for online donations to the team.

Conservative ag critic talk plays to Stock Growers’ convention views By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
The federal Conservative agriculture EXPRESS critic’s talk was warmly received by the Saskatchewan Stock Growers’ Association convention in Moose Jaw. Quebec MP Luc Berthold’s positions on carbon tax, trade agreements, red tape, livestock transportation regulations and the Canada Food Guide were soothing music to the ranchers’ ears. “The first act of a Conservative government will be to scrap the carbon tax,” he said to applause. “The industry faces many challenges when it comes to carbon tax regulation. Our position has always been that Canadian producers know best. Rather than creating more obstacles and regulations for farmers, the government’s role should be to leave them alone.
“There can be no greater example of a harmful regulation than the Liberal carbon tax” creating new costs and making farmers less competitive. “Under a Conservative government, Canada will negotiate a free trade agreement with an independent Britain as soon as possible” and work to remove non-tariff barriers in Europe. The proposed livestock transportation regulations scheduled for 2020 implementation should be put on hold until a comprehensive study is complete in 2022. “Many of these standards are not necessarily about animal welfare. Ninety-nine per cent of livestock on long hauls reach their destination in good condition.” Reducing the hours animals can be on the road and the need for rest stops will mean more loading and unloading which causes stress to the animals. “This creates more an-
imal welfare problems than it solves.” Berthold promised a Conservative government would review the new Canada Food Guide, seen as an attack on meat by some producers. “We don’t oppose the inclusion of more vegetables and fruit in the diet but there is an argument for greater inclusion of high-quality meat protein. “A palm size of beef steak would provide 184 calories, would provide 26 grams of protein. To get the same amount of protein will require eating an entire can of beans at 420 calories,” with the subsequent blowback. Proposed front of food package labelling of ingredients with more than 15 per cent of recommended daily intake could harm ground beef and packaged meat. “The proposed front of package labels looks like warning labels. Ground beef won’t be seen as healthy.” Ron Walter can be reached at email@example.com

Canada Day celebrations would not be complete without some foods that Canadians have developed and claimed as their own. In other spots they might be called Elephant Ears or Bear Toes but in Canada they are Beaver Tails and proud of it. And what better topping than a maple sauce or syrup from Canadian trees. Mmmm, good. Happy Canada Day to one and all. ••• Canadian Beaver Tails 1/2 cup warm water 5 tsps. active dry yeast 1 pinch white sugar 1 cup warm milk at 110 degrees F 1/3 cup white sugar 1 1/2 tsps. salt 1 tsp. vanilla extract 3 eggs, beaten 1/3 cup vegetable oil 5 cups whole wheat flour, divided 1 quart vegetable oil for frying 2 cups white sugar 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon to taste Mix warm water, yeast and pinch of sugar in a large bowl. Let stand until yeast begins to foam and form a creamy layer, about 5 minutes. Stir in milk, 1/3 cups sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs and 1/3
cup oil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Mix in about 1/2 the flour and stir until dough is too stiff to add more flour. Turn dough onto a floured surface. Knead in more flour until dough is no longer sticky. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Form dough into a ball and place in an oiled bowl and cover. Let rise until double in size, about 1 hour. Punch down, knead a few times. Pinch off a piece of dough the size of an egg. Roll into an oval shape (like a beaver tail) about 1/4 inch thick. Place on a cloth and cover until all dough has been rolled. Heat oil to 375 degrees F in a deep fryer or deep skillet. Oil should be about 4 inches deep. While oil heats, mix 2 cups of sugar and the ground cinnamon in a shallow bowl and set aside. Lower the tails, one at a time, into the hot oil and fry 1-2 minutes per side until golden brown. Blot excess oil with paper towels. While still warm, press into the sugar mixture and shake off excess sugar. Alternately cover tails with a maple spread and drizzle with chocolate. Or spread with jam and whipped cream. ••• Maple Syrup Bars Base: 1/2 cup butter, softened 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour Topping: 1 cup maple syrup 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 1/4 cup butter 2 eggs 2 tbsps. flour pinch salt For the base, heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine butter, brown sugar and flour and stir until mixture is crumbly. Press into an 8 inch pan and bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. For topping, in a saucepan combine syrup, brown sugar and walnuts and bring to boil. Reduce heat and cook over medium low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add butter and stir until melted. In a bowl beat eggs with flour and salt. Add egg mixture to maple syrup mixture and stir to combine. Pour over the base and bake another 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool completely before cutting.

Sportsplex pool receives new flooring Jason during annual overhaul G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Users of the Kinsmen Sportsplex swimming pool will notice new flooring the next time they come to the complex. One of the major projects taking place during this year’s annual maintenance campaign is the revitalization of the floors in the change rooms, the washrooms and the showers, explained Cory Oakes, operations manager for the parks department. Anti-slip tiling will be installed so users are safe while walking in any of those areas. The pool deck is also being retiled. Overall maintenance is going well and all necessary repairs should be finished by July 2, Oakes said. Parks and rec staff, along with contractors, are fixing all the small things that the public doesn’t necessarily notice, such as water pumps, filters and pipes. Painting of the upper level of the pool is also occurring. Another major project is the replacement of the concrete pad at the front entrance.
It will be torn out and piles will be placed underneath to keep it from rising or sinking. Oakes pointed out years of freezing and thawing raised the pad by an inch, so the department thought it would be proactive and address it now for safety concerns. Oakes was unable to say how much it costs to undertake this maintenance since it varies from year to year. All the funding comes out of the department’s operating budget.

Bacterial Supplements: Beyond the Belly by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor It is fair to say that when most people hear the word, “probiotics”, they likely think about something that is good for the digestive system. It is hard to argue the benefits that probiotics bring your intestinal system, but research is showing us that the health advantages bacterial supplements can offer go far beyond the digestive tract. Probiotics are the healthy bacteria or microorganisms that one can receive through supplementation or from ingesting fermented foods. Most people assume correctly that a gut with a healthy population of good bacteria

encourages proper digestion. For some, probiotic supplementation helps reduce symptoms of irritable bowel, like diarrhea or constipation. Here are a few other health benefits of probiotics that go beyond the bowels: Blood Pressure. Human trials are showing that probiotic supplementation can reduce blood pressure. This is especially true for those with hypertension related to pre-diabetes or metabolic syndrome. Blood Lipid Levels. Research has shown that probiotics can significantly lower total blood cholesterol levels. As blood lipids relate to overall cardiovascular health, healthy gut bacterial may play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy heart and arteries. Blood Sugar Levels. Insulin resistance contributes to higher blood sugars. Probiotics have been shown to increase insulin sensitivity. Arthritis. Probiotics help to reduce overall inflammation in the body. With less inflammation the better your joints will feel.

Obesity. Through improved metabolism of fat tissue, probiotics enable the body to better rid itself of adipose (fat cells), especially the fat that accumulates around the waist. Fight the common cold. A healthier gut also means a healthier immune system. Improving gut flora positively affects the immunes cells need to fight off viruses and bad bacteria. Smarter and Happier. Improved moods, reduced anxiety, depression and stress, and improved cognitive function have all been related to bacterial supplementation. Nutrient Absorption. Vitamins and minerals do little good for the body when they just end up in the toilet. When the gut is healthy, it takes in more nutrients from the foods you eat. Hippocrates is credited with saying, “All disease begins in the gut.” If you are good to your gut, your gut will be good to the rest of you. Eat yoghurt and prosper!

City Hall Council Notes For more Local and Council News visit MooseJawToday.com
Council’s pay likely to increase, despite councillor’s objections Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
City council’s pay is likely to increase in the next couple of weeks, even though one councillor disagrees with the change. Two years ago, the federal government eliminated a onethird tax exemption for all elected officials across Canada. The feds justified this change by saying the exemption provided an advantage that other Canadians did not enjoy. During its June 10 regular meeting, council gave three readings to a remuneration bylaw amendment that would increase the pay of the mayor and councillors to offset the loss of the tax exemption. However, since Coun. Brian Swanson voted against the bylaw during all three readings, it must return to a future council meeting for official approval. As part of the proposed bylaw amendment, and to offset
the tax exemption loss, the mayor’s pay would increase to $79,108 from $68,221, while the salary of a councillor would increase to $24,918 from $22,740. Swanson pointed out he couldn’t think of any expenses he had incurred while on council. In fact, he thought the federal government had simply closed a tax loophole that wasn’t being used. If Swanson had used one-third of his councillor’s salary, he continued, that means he would be spending about $600 a month, which he isn’t. “I look at the cup as being half-full here. We were receiving more money than we should have been,” he said, adding there has been no consistent pattern across the country of councils increasing their pay or leaving it as is. It’s a fact of life for Coun. Chris Warren that he some-
times has to take one to two days off work as vacation for council business, he explained. Councillors attend two to four meetings for council business regularly, while they also serve on committees or meet with residents about certain issues. All of this involves driving and using fuel. “We don’t get reimbursed for that,” he said, pointing out they need the internet to conduct research and require phones for their business. He isn’t reimbursed for using up his data or for the calls he makes or receives. “Is the amount of funds, is it $600 a month? I can’t say,” he added. “There’s definitely a fairly large substantial amount of my personal life that goes into this council. I accepted that.” The next regular council meeting is Monday, June 24.
Proposed policy would help advertise naming rights to parks, buildings Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
The Yara Centre and Mosaic Place could hypothetically receive new names in 2021, now that the city has a new advertising and sponsorship policy that will soon be marketed widely. City administration presented a marketing policy proposal to city council during its executive committee meeting on June 10. The marketing policy would create a consistent approach in the execution of advertising and sponsorship agreements, according to administration. It would solicit opportunities to advertise at, or sponsor, all parks, playgrounds and recreational buildings. The policy would also provide revenue-generating opportunities, uphold the municipality’s stewardship role to safeguard assets and interests, and protect the corporate image. Yara Centre A minimum commitment of five years would be required for naming rights to any room at the Yara Centre. Some examples include: • $5,000 per year for naming rights to the fitness centre and upstairs commons area • $3,500 per room per year for dressing rooms with turf access; $3,000 per room per year for dressing rooms without turf access • $1,000 per year for boot racks in the lobby Kinsmen Sportsplex and Pool A minimum commitment of five years would be required for naming rights to any room at the Kinsmen Sportsplex. Some examples of naming rights costs include: • $5,000 per year for the informational sign and to sponsor the free public swim • $3,000 per year for meeting rooms • $2,000 per year for the steam room, hot tub, leisure pool, diving boards and water slide Parks and playgrounds A 10-year commitment would be required for naming rights to parks and playgrounds. It would cost $7,500 per year for the naming right, along with a new sign, a press release announcement and an advertising package on social media with the municipality.

City Hall Council Notes Cleanup program would spur groups to help keep city tidy Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
A proposed cleanup program is being pitched to encourage social clubs and community groups to work with the municipality to keep Moose Jaw neat, tidy and free of litter. There is currently no program that deals with groups wanting to help with litter control, while city administration has to review each request separately, explained city manager Jim Puffalt. Therefore, city hall might not be supporting as many groups as it should, while it is likely charging groups to dispose of litter at the landfill even though they have volunteered to keep the community clean.
“It is important because we’re a tourist town and we want to ensure that people know that (eliminating) litter and keeping the city tidy is important,” Puffalt told city council during its June 10 executive committee meeting. The proposed community cleanup program could include designated areas within the municipality, with groups invited to adopt an area to maintain, he continued. City council could create a week in the spring and fall where community groups would be asked to support the efforts of city workers to keep Moose Jaw clean.
Groups would notify city hall of an area they want to adopt and would then receive recognition for their cleanup efforts. The municipality would provide garbage bags and would waive landfill fees to the participating groups; weights would still be recorded. City staff and councillors would also be able to participate in the cleanup events for areas that have been adopted. Council then approved a recommendation to have city administration create a community cleanup program.
Cultural Centre needs $100K to replace sound system, projector Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Several Canadian bands have skipped out on performing here in the past few months because the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre’s aging sound system could not meet their standards. The centre purchased the current speakers in 2005 and had planned to buy new equipment in 2016, but didn’t, explained executive director Derik Cronan. The largest issue the organization faces is that previous management did not anticipate increased costs for new technology. To upgrade its sound system and purchase a new projector, the cultural centre has asked council for permission to use $96,500 from its retained earnings account. The current balance of that account is $197,575. Council unanimously approved a recommendation to allow the centre to access $96,500 of its retained earnings. The recommendation must be approved during the next regular council meeting to become official. The audio system upgrade is expected to cost nearly $100,000; installation would cost nearly $20,000; the estimated replacement cost for the digital cinema projector is between $40,000 and $50,000. The purchase of the equipment would require extra contributions to the centre’s
equipment reserve account of roughly $12,200 a year. The funds in the retained earnings account have been acquired from accumulated annual surpluses. This account is also used to offset any unexpected deficits. Last year the cultural centre had a surplus of $54,732. It had a deficit of $55,186 two years ago and incurred $102,954 in restructuring costs. Three years ago the organization had a surplus of $33,389. It would be difficult to sell the speakers and projector since both are nearly 15 years old. The centre had to turn down a musical act in January since it would have cost $8,000 to rent a sound system, Cronan added. If the organization’s speakers do not meet bands’ expectations, then a system must be brought in from Regina, Calgary, or Winnipeg, along with the technicians to run the system.
Extra $30,000 needed to refurbish cultural centre marquee Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Rural Municipality of Moose Jaw No. 161 NOTICE OF INTENTION TO AMEND ZONING BYLAW 6-2011 Notice is hereby given by the Rural Municipality (R.M.) of Moose Jaw No. 161, pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007, that Council is considering to amend Bylaw No. 6-2011, the Zoning Bylaw, by rezoning Pt-SE 1 -16-27 W2 from Agriculture (AG) to Country Residential (CR1). Purpose: 1) To amend the Zoning Bylaw No. 6-2011, of the RM Moose Jaw No. 161, by rezoning the 9.962 hectare (24.62 acre) parcel located on the SE 1-16-27 W2 in order to accommodate an additional residential subdivision on the quarter section, as shown below. 2) Section 7.4 of the RM of Moose Jaw No. 161 Zoning Bylaw limits the number of Residential Subdivisions to a maximum of 2 sites per quarter section. Considering the applicant wishes to subdivide 2 parcels, a Zoning Amendment is required to accommodate the additional sites.
The cost to replace the marquee at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre has increased to $70,000 from $40,000 after additional engineering requirements were needed. The marquee is being modernized since it was made out of materials not meant to withstand the environment over so many decades. The sign has absorbed so much water that its structural integrity has been compromised and has prompted questions about its safety. The parks and recreation department expects to replace the sign — using modern and durable materials — by the end of July. The extra $30,000 needed to refurbish the sign came up during a discussion about the cultural centre at city council’s June 10 executive committee meeting. “I don’t have any trouble with the cultural centre using their retained earnings as they
so desire,” said Coun. Brian Swanson. However, he thought it would be great if the centre received a smaller subsidy to reflect how much it has in retained earnings. Swanson also didn’t understand how the cultural centre wasn’t absorbing the cost to refurbish the marquee, especially if money is available. After all, he noted, the organization is bearing the costs to replace its sound system. The parks and recreation department has to come up with an extra $30,000 to fix the sign, but Swanson noted he could find many projects to use that money. The cultural centre could conceivably pay the full $70,000 itself to fix its sign while council could re-direct $70,000 to another project. Cronan pointed out the replacement of the marquee was already part of the parks department’s large equipment reserve list.
Sale of financial bonds nets municipality nearly $2.2 million Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Inspection: The proposed Bylaw Amendment may be inspected at the R.M. office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Monday through Friday, excepting holidays. Copies are available at cost. Public Hearing: Council will hold a public hearing to receive submissions on the proposed bylaw at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9th, 2019, in the Council Chambers of the office of the R.M. of Moose Jaw No. 161, 1410 Caribou St. W., Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7S9 to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaw. Council will also consider written comments received at the hearing (emailed to email@example.com or delivered to the undersigned at the municipal office). For further information, contact Tim Cheesman-Municipal Planner-(306) 596-4431 or the Administration office-(306) 692-3446. Dated at the City of Moose Jaw, in the Province of Saskatchewan, this 5th day of June 2019.
An extra $2.2 million will flow into the municipality’s coffers after the investment committee sold 16 financial bonds, although more could be gained if that money is reinvested into other accounts. City council recently authorized the investment committee and investment manager to sell bonds at a premium and reinvest the money into higher interest Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs). The investment committee and investment manager took more than $47.2 million in bonds and sold them for more than $49.4 million, netting the municipality an extra $2.2 million. A report from the finance department indicates if the $2.2 million were put into GICs with similar terms as the bonds before the sale, and then held to maturity, an extra $744,000 would be generated. Furthermore, if the $49 million was put into medium- and long-term GICs, an additional $2.25 million could also be created. In total, nearly $3 million would be created for the municipality during the next five years from the interest on the GICs. City council discussed the report from the finance department during the recent June 10 regular meeting.

Both players are accomplished golfers and at the end of 18 holes Nick had won the match and in the process set a new Lynbrook record for low score. Nick had eagles on holes # 8 and # 11 to go along with birdies on # 1, # 2, # 10 , # 15 , and # 16. Lepine was 8 under par for 18 holes and established a new Lynbrook course record of 63.

It was with that dedication in mind that MJLAX presented Ingalls with the first-ever Builder Award prior to the Bantam Mustangs playoff game last Wednesday night, an honour that came as a surprise as Ingalls thought she was on hand to help with a special presentation to the departing Steve Michaluk. “It means so much to me, I’m actually quite emotional right now, if I talk I’ll probably start crying,” Ingalls said with a laugh. “I don’t think I was alone as a builder in any of the 10 years I put into the association. I had great mentorship with Barry Stewart and Steve Michaluk and many people across Saskatchewan helped me out.” Ingalls joined the organization at a time when MJLAX
was at a crossroads – registration was down, finances were in a bit of trouble, and there was work to do to bring things back to where they should be. Like so many other parents who spend time as volunteers, Ingalls started because her youngsters, Quinn and Piper, were getting involved in the sport. Quinn Ingalls has since gone on to play internationally with Team Canada, currently plays for the Saskatchewan SWAT junior ‘A’ team and will be playing Division II lacrosse in the U.S. this fall. “I’ve been watching them since they were four years old grow with this association and the sport,” Ingalls said. “Now we’re at 60-some kids, which is pretty incredible for a town this size.” Current MJLAX president Cody Nidesh felt the award was a natural fit for Ingalls given her dedication to the
sport. “Bobbi just always had time for people; she has an unreal personality and treats everyone equal. She’s gone to bat for multiple associations in the province,” he said. “At the end of the day, she has a passion for the game and she’s just been a credit to the organization.” Nidesh added that Moose Jaw lacrosse would be in a far different place if not for Ingalls’ time. “Between her and (longtime vice-president) Carrie (Johnson), for years they put countless hours into getting it financially secure and promoting it,” Nidesh said. “There are countless volunteer hours she put into it. She had two kids playing the sport at the same time and still managed to do everything she did… and she’s been a mentor to myself and it’s great to have her coming back (as past president) and giving to the sport in general.”

Prairie Hockey Academy honours top players from inaugural CSSHL season Coward, Calvert named Elite 15 co-MVPs, Aikens wins Midget Varsity MVP Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
After a great season, the coaching staff of the Prairie Hockey Academy Elite 15 Cougars had a tough decision deciding who was the most valuable player on their team, a squad that posted a 23-12-0 record in their first-ever season of Canadian Sport School Hockey League play. The choice made perfect sense – share the Kevin Smyth Most Valuable Player honour between two of their most dynamic standouts in forward Atley Calvery and goaltender Chase Coward. The duo were among 14 players honoured during the PHA awards banquet and ceremony in Caronport on Saturday night. Calvert led the Cougars in goals with 24 and 41 points in 35 games this past season; Coward posted a 13-4-0 record with a 2.71 goals against average and .911 save percentage. Both players are two-year veterans of the PHA program, suiting up in 2017-18 in the Academy’s first season and then moving up to the Elite 15 ranks when the Cougars were accepted into the CSSHL. Both players talked about how the PHA program – with its heavy focus on academics at Briercrest Christian Academy alongside hockey – changed them as players and as individuals. “I’ve grown a lot character-wise and skill-wise, I used to play house before I came here and now I’m with a (Western Hockey League) team,” said Coward,

“I’ve grown a lot character-wise and skill-wise, I used to play house before I came here and now I’m with a (Western Hockey League) team,” -goaltender Chase Coward.
Calvert’s WHL affiliation is a little closer by – the Moose Jaw Warriors listed
him shortly after the past Bantam Draft, and he plans to suit up for the local AAA squad this winter alongside a host of his current teammates. “The last two years have really helped me get into it with the AAA team next year so it’s going to be great to be a part of it,” he said. “We have 10 of our guys from here, so it’s going to be a lot of fun, kind of like part two.” Calvert shared the Ryan Smyth Top Forward award with fellow highly touted prospect Kirkland Mullen (21-22-43) while Coward picked up the Elite 15 Randy Brownlee Top Goaltender award. Development and improvement was
also the name of the game for the Midget Varsity MVP, as Colton Aikens scored twice and added 17 points while also claiming the team’s Adam Lawson Top Defensive Player award. The Cougars reached the Midget Varsity league championship final after a 15-8-1 campaign. The full list of award winners pictured above is as follows: Josh Warkentin (back left, Randy Brownlee top goaltender, Midget Varsity), Evan Callaghan (John Barkman Leadership Award, Elite 15), Ryley Gross (Barkman Leadership Award, Midget Varsity), Ethan Peters (Chad Gustafson Academic Award, Elite 15), Chase Coward (Brownlee Top Goaltender, Kevin Smyth Most Valuable Player, Elite 15), Max Wanner (Adam Lawson Top Defenceman, Elite 15), Hunter Weber (front left, J.J. Hunter Most Improved, Elite 15), Josh Prebushewski (Hunter Most Improved, Midget Varsity), Owen Neubeker (Stephen Clements Hardest Worker, Elite 15), Mikkel Hrechka (Clements Hardest Worker, Midget Varsity), Colton Aikens (Lawson Top Defenceman, Smyth Most Valuable Player, Midget Varsity), Noah Wills (Gustafson Academic Award, Ryan Smyth Top Forward, Midget Varsity), Kirk Mullen (Ryan Smyth Top Forward Award, Elite 15), Atley Calvert (Smyth Top Forward, Smyth Most Valuable Player, Elite 15).
Exceeding expectations: Brilliant inaugural CSSHL campaign has Prairie Hockey Academy looking for more Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Prairie Hockey Academy became one of the top teams in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League. The Elite 15 and Midget Varsity squads posted impressive results throughout the season, with the Elite 15s putting together a 23-12-0 campaign and reaching the CSSHL championship tournament. The Varsity squad, meanwhile, bested even that remarkable accomplishment, going 15-8-1 and reaching the gold medal game in the CSSHL tournament before just falling short. Not bad at all for a couple of first-year squads trying to find their way in a new league. “Having the two teams this season, it’s a full year and we had a lot of fun,” said PHA founder and president Justin Simpkins during the team’s annual awards banquet on Saturday night in Caronport. “We saw a lot of growth and development on and off the ice and the support of the community at today’s banquet is just the icing on the cake. “We had two teams who were highly

the on-ice side is looking really good.” The PHA came into existence prior to the 2017-18 season, taking to the ice with an exhibition schedule and a goal of being admitted to the CSSHL, which only took a single season. n top of that?
Even more impressive. “That was a pretty big feat,” Simpkins said, adding that he and the team’s coaching staffs – the Elite 15s led by Lorne Molleken and Midget Varsity by Lloyd Friesen – were able to learn a lot themselves about how the league works and will be able to plan accordingly in the future. The PHA’s goal of developing quality young men in addition to first-rate hockey players appears to be taking hold, as evidenced by talking to the players themselves as well as the hard work they put in in the classroom. In fact, the list of players who received academic honours this year was essentially each team’s roster. “I think the next step is continuing to work on pursuing the academic side at BCA and then for our student athletes as well, how do we take the next step, how do we do better on ice but also how do we get more involved in the community?” Simpkins said. “There’s a lot we can do and want to do in the future.”

Heartbreaking loss for Express against Millionaires Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
After Sunday afternoon’s Western Canadian Baseball League contest against the Melville Millionaires, Moose Jaw Miller Express pitcher Michael Borst turned in one of the most impressive performances on the mound in recent years, throwing 10 innings and giving up only one run on three hits while striking out seven. That included a no-hitter through five innings and only two hits through seven. The problem was, Melville’s Tanner Solomon and Chris Lacher were just as good. Solomon gave up only two hits over seven innings – one of those a solo home run off the bat of Geordie McDougall that tied the game 1-1 in the bottom of the seventh. Lacher took over the next inning and went the rest of the way, giving up a single hit.
That was enough to take the win out of Ross Wells Park, as Evan Moore belted a two-run home run off reliever Cole Warken in the top of the 11th to give the Millionaires a 3-1 victory. “My arm feels okay, I’m sure tomorrow I’m going to regret it,” Borst said after the contest. “But I’m just glad we were close to winning, we’re making strides every day and we just have to trust the process, for sure.” The one problem with Borst on the mound is it takes his bat out of the lineup – and as one of the WCBL’s top hitters through the first month of the season, that’s a tough stick to miss. “Earlier in the season when I pitch and hit at the same time I was extremely sore the next day,” Borst said. “So I talked to the
coach and said ‘hey, lets have (Blake Gallagher) DH, we can save his arm and he can hit for me and we can take it from there’. I’ll be back on the stick on Tuesday either in field or as the DH and we’ll go from there, anything this team wants me to do I’ll do.” Darrell Doll and Doug Farrell had the only other Miller Express hits. The game marked the fourth meeting with Melville in a week, after falling 1-0 and winning 5-0 on June 18 and taking a 9-1 win June 19. Every other game was rained out, meaning the Express will play doubleheaders in Yorkton on July 12, in Weyburn on July 14 and at Ross Wells on Aug. 4.

Tracey still in awe after first-round selection in NHL Draft Warriors forward goes in first round, 29th overall to Anaheim Ducks Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw Warriors forward Brayden Tracey and his agent chatted with a few teams heading into the National Hockey League Entry Draft event but one had stuck out – a pre-Draft interview with the Anaheim Ducks, where they asked if he thought he’d have a chance of still being around at the 29th pick. The Ducks ended up making the call that will change Tracey’s life. Anaheim selected the Western Hockey League rookie of the year with the aforementioned 29th pick, making him the latest Warrior to be selected in the first round after Brett Howden was chosen by the New York Rangers 27th overall in 2016. “I didn’t even know what to think, honestly, I was really nervous and the nerves were just flying through my body,” Tracey said of waiting in Rogers Arena stands. Then he heard the words ‘from the Moose Jaw Warriors…’ and it was time to go. “I kind of saw my mom and she started tearing up, so I stood up and gave her the hug first and then made my way over to my dad… it’s just the best feeling in the world,” Tracey said. While the walk from the stands to the NHL Draft stage wasn’t an overly long one, it was most certainly surreal. Once he’d shook hands with the Anaheim brass, received his first Ducks jersey and hat, took part in a Getty Images photo shoot backstage and conducted a handful of interviews, it was time to refocus on the task at hand.
Anaheim’s Brayden Tracey poses for a photo with Anaheim Ducks management. Canadian Press photo Just being in the Sunshine State for his first development camp will be an experience in itself for the 18-year-old Calgary product, as he’s never visited before but will soon be making his home there. Realistically, Tracey has a bit of time before he’ll crack the Ducks line-up. That means another season or two in the Western Hockey Hockey league and a chance to further develop a game that has exploded in leaps and bounds since joining the team full-time last season. Tracey won the Jim Piggott Trophy as rookie of the year after an incredible campaign where he scored 36 goals
and 81 points to lead all first-year players in the WHL. “Being a rookie this year, (head coach) Tim (Hunter) and (general manager) Alan (Millar) trusted me and I can’t thank them enough, they pushed me to get here as well,” Tracey said. “So it’s my turn to give back, kind of being ‘that guy’ next year is going to be special and I’m excited.” There was word heading into the Draft that Tracey’s stock might take a hit due to playing with fellow standouts Tristin Langan and Justin Almeida, both of whom finished the 2018-19 campaign with more than 100 points on the season. Together, the trio formed the highest-scoring line in the Canadian Hockey League. But the World Under-18 championships dispelled that belief: Tracey emerged as one of Team Canada’s top players in Sweden, scoring four times and seven assists in seven games. As for the coming season, it’s just a matter of going out and playing as well as he can while continuing to improve and develop as much as possible. “Game-wise, I just play my own game, that’s why they picked me,” Tracey said. “So, I think if I keep doing that, I’ll be successful. In the gym things might change with what the Ducks organization wants me to do, but it’s just the same, it’s all hard work and I’ll do my best to reach the next level.”
Moose Jaw’s Newkirk selected by Islanders in NHL Draft Portland Winterhawks standout chosen in fifth round, 147th overall Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
Moose Jaw Minor Hockey product Reece Newkirk is a member of the New York Islanders. The Portland Winterhawks standout was selected in the fifth round, 147th overall during the second day of the 2019 National Hockey League Draft on Saturday in Vancouver. Newkirk, 18, is coming off a solid season with the Winterhawks where he scored 23 goals and 59 points in 68 games while seeing time on Portland’s top line. As a 16-year-old, Newkirk scored eight goals an 11 points for the Winterhawks in 58 games. Newkirk played one season with the Moose Jaw Generals, scoring 17 goals and 40 points in 44 games.
He’s the first Moose Jaw product drafted since Rhett Gardner was chosen in the fourth round, 116th overall by the Dallas Stars in 2016. And then there’s the legendary connection the Islanders have with Moose Jaw – Hockey Hall of Famer Clark Gillies played 12 seasons with New York, winning four straight Stanley Cups as part of the team’s early-80s dynasty. Newkirk went into the Draft ranked 81st among North American skaters in the final Central Scouting Bureau rankings and was projected to go as high as 110th overall in the Future Considerations rankings.
Portland Winterhawks forward Reece Newkirk takes the ice for a shift against the Moose Jaw Warriors this past season.

People’s Party of Canada names Chey Craik candidate for Moose Jaw constituency Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
After watching how poorly Canada has been led during the past four years, Chey Craik decided to become involved in federal politics to make a difference. Craik, 42, was recently named the candidate for the People’s Party of Canada (PCC) in the Moose JawLake Centre-Lanigan constituency. He now has a little less than five months to make an impression on the doorstep before voters head to the polls on Monday, Oct. 21. “I’m excited for real change in this area,” said Craik, who lives on a farm in the Rural Municipality of Moose Jaw with his wife and two teenaged children. He believes there has been a lack of federal support for this area of Saskatchewan, while the people with whom he has spoken have indicated they don’t even know who their current Member of Parliament (MP) is since they rarely seen him. Craik wants to be the guy to whom people can speak and to act as their voice in Ottawa. Craik agrees with the PPC’s platform of individual freedoms, fairness, responsibility and respect. “I have been disappointed with politics for the last while, but specifically the last four years,” Craik said. “The direction Canada has taken, it’s just not what we
need. I want to be a voice for change.” In particular, Craik has been disappointed with “the endless scandals” that have happened in Ottawa, the corruption, and the fact the federal government doesn’t allow itself to be investigated. If elected, Craik would focus on advocating for lower taxes for individuals and corporations so people have more money in their pockets. He would also advocate for eliminating the carbon tax. “Everybody I talk to in the area throughout the riding, that’s one of their major complaints, is that costs have gone up and the people just don’t see that in return,” he said. “I know the government says (you’ll) get it back, but it doesn’t actually work that way.” Craik believes PPC leader Maxime Bernier is “a real leader,” compared to the other federal party leaders who don’t have the qualities to lead or run Canada. Craik pointed out Bernier was a minister of several portfolios while in the Stephen Harper government. “He (Bernier) has what it takes to run this country,” added Craik. Craik believes he is approachable, can develop ways to get changes made, and would contribute to doing politics differently.

Families for Change holding fundraiser to support seniors’ association Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
Moose Jaw Families for Change has heard about the difficulties the Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association (MJDSA) is facing and is launching a fundraiser to support the association. Families for Change is collecting bottles, cans and similar recycling materials throughout June and July, as it seeks to help the seniors’ association stay afloat financially. Individuals, families, and businesses are encouraged to contribute whatever recyclable containers they have; materials can be dropped off at the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre at 335 Fourth Avenue Southwest, or you can call 693-2271 to have the recyclables picked up. Families for Change will continue collecting recyclable containers until the end of July, before re-evaluat-
ing whether the seniors’ association wants the collecting to continue. Vicki Wadsworth, president of the Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association, is pleased with the support. Besides the recycling fundraiser campaign, residents have also supported the MJDSA by attending its town hall meeting even though they weren’t members. Since then and the announcement that the MJDSA is struggling, the organization has seen an increase in membership and people stepping forward to volunteer. The Moose Jaw and District Seniors Association is holding a dance and barbecue on Canada Day, July 1. To support the MJDSA, call 306-694-4223.
Cemetery tours tell stories of community’s early pioneers Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw Cemetery contains the oldest gravesites in town, so Tourism Moose Jaw wants to tell the stories of some of those deceased residents who helped build the community. Historic tours of the oldest cemetery in the community have kicked off for the second consecutive season. From now until the end of September, onehour treks are being offered on Thursdays, Fridays and Satur- The chapel in the old Moose Jaw Cemetery won’t days at 10:30 a.m. and 11:45 be open for tours this year, but Tourism Moose a.m. When October arrives, the Jaw hopes to have access to the building next seatours will take place on Satur- son as part of its cemetery tours. Photo by Jason G. Antonio days and Sundays. Anyone interested in taking a trek of the cemetery is encouraged to register online at www.tourismmoosejaw.com. Or, you can call the tourism office at 306-693-8097 or visit the office to have staff help you register. Tours cost $7.50 and a maximum of 10 people can be taken at one time. The outing starts at the main gates of the cemetery, located at 1000 Caribou Street East. The outings are being offered at those times since there is not much shade on the tour to protect from the heat, explained Jacki L’Heureux-Mason, executive director of Tourism Moose Jaw. This will also allow tourists to enjoy the solitude of the cemetery while avoiding heat stroke. The treks will be kept in a small area of the cemetery, so those with mobility issues can still participate. Tourism Moose Jaw is planning to offer two different tours of the cemetery, with the first scheduled to run from now until the end of July and the second to commence in August. L’Heureux-Mason offered a teaser of some of the stories tourists can expect to hear. One story will focus on a Chinese man from the early 1900s who was considered one of Moose Jaw’s greatest entrepreneurs. Another story will look at Tasinaskawin Brule, the wife of Chief Black Bull, who is the only Aboriginal person buried in the cemetery. The tour is meant to honour those residents who helped lay the foundation for the City of Moose Jaw says L’Heureux-Mason.

DOWN ON THE
CORNER Parading National Pride
When it comes to Canada Day celebrations, the Liarton Ladies Auxiliary (LLA) has stayed with the status quo. Fireworks at night follow the usual local entertainers on stage, and of course the ever-present Beer Garden. This year, the LLA decided to try some different events to spark some fun and patriotism, beginning with an early morning 3 on 3 ball by Dale “bushy” Bush hockey game. It was to be a 3 on 3 hockey tournament, but registration only produced ten players, including 2 of the Ladies Auxiliary, so the teams were divided evenly. It turned out to be a mildly entertaining event with no fights or brawls. The Beer Garden was opened early with the bagpiping in of the keg, similar to the piping in of the haggis on Robbie Burns Day. The pancakes and bacon were spectacular and much better tasting than haggis. Later in the morning, you could hear the sounds of the parade getting organized with the 2 marching bands tuning and prepping for the mile-long hike. The parade was a new event for Liarton. In order to make it seem longer, the route goes from one end of town to the 4 way stop sign where it does a u-turn and returns to the start. The two Marching bands were at each end of the procession, with the Scratch Creek High School Band (14 members) leading the way. Our local “Kazoo Marching Band” made up of Liartonites ranging in age from 6 years to a spry 84-year-old brought up the rear. The Liartonites were an unusual marching band, as we all played the same instrument (kazoos) and called ourselves “The Liarton Precision Lawn Chair Team and Kazoo Marching Band”. Quite a mouthful! The 11 of us had the greatest time ever and our lawn chair maneuvers, along with our tooting of the only song in our repertoire, “Seventy-six Trombones”, may have made us crowd favorites. It didn’t hurt that the crowd was all our families. I wonder if we could turn pro? Sandwiched in-between the 2 bands were the usual business and club floats, including a troop of clowns, who did the clean up after the Gymkhana riders went by. As a marcher a few spots behind the horses, I was very grateful for the clown’s efforts. To be able to make picking-up horsepoopy funny is a rare talent. It was politely suggested, that for the next parade, the horses could bring up the rear and the kazooers could concentrate on kazooing and not sidestepping “stains” on the road. Perhaps the most interesting group in the parade was the 5 seniors and their “souped”-up electric wheelchairs and scooters. They gave the precision lawn chair team a run for the money, in terms of crowd favoritism. While our lawn chair “moves” were made up on the spot (we called it jamming) the 5 scooter riders, who called themselves “The Heck’s Angels” were well-rehearsed and even had “drag races” during their “performance”. The electric vehicles were not really souped-up, but were highly decorated, including ornate helmets. The beautiful smiles on the “gangs” faces showed the crowd how happy the Seniors were to be able to participate. Rumour has it that next year the 3 on 3 hockey will be replaced with the Heck’s Angel’s drag races. At my age I may be using a scooter by then. I wonder if I could join the club and what hazing I need to suffer in order to get my colours. Canada Day is a beautiful day to celebrate a beautiful country. To be honest, I can hardly wait for it each year. Congratulations to the organizers of all Canada Day parties.

Tour through Tatawâw Park offers connections to area’s Lakota history Larissa Kurz
As part of the week-long celebration of Aboriginal culture, the Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association organized an idyllic walking tour down into Tatawâw Park on June 18, to experience the area where the Lakota camped for several decades. Chief Black Bull and his band traveled to the Moose Jaw area in 1833 and made what is now Tatawâw Park their permanent home for 30 years, until the reserve land at Wood Mountain was solidified in the early 1910s. In the next few years, the Lakota people dispersed from the camp; many went to the Wood Mountain reserve, some scattered to other places, and some lingered. By 1913, the Lakota were completely relocated. But the land they lived on remains, with the river and the hills that bordered the main camp intact. The years that the area spent as the Wild Animal Park zoo have left an imprint — sections of concrete, planted trees, and the two bridges — but is still relatively untouched. Historical author Ron Papandrea finds the area fascinating, as he has spent a lot of time researching the Lakota and the defeat of General Custer at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876, during The Great Sioux War. Sitting Bull, who was elected by the chiefs, led the Lakota Sioux in the clash dubbed Custer’s Last Stand, and his is the name most people are familiar with related to that historical moment. But that defeat has ties to the Lakota who settled near Moose Jaw, as Black Bull — who took part in that battle and was wounded in the leg — was one of two very prominent chiefs who settled in Canada following the victory. “All people know about is Sitting Bull and they don’t want to acknowledge that there are other chiefs that were very important,” said Papandrea. “Black Bull was an important chief, but he gets drowned out by Sitting Bull.” During the walk, Papandrea provided extensive history about the Lakota and Black Bull — who in 1895, sponsored the only Ghost Dance known to have taken place in Canada, after friend and successor Brave Heart brought knowledge of the ceremony with him from America. The grave of Black Bull’s wife, Tasinaskawin Brule, was recently honored with a re-dedication from members of the Black Bull family. Rich Pickering, who worked in the Wild Animal Park
The camp is believed to have been located at this curve in the river, although there would have been more brush and less trees in the 1880s. for many years, joined Papandrea in leading the tour, as he has extensive knowledge of the park’s terrain. Based on photographs, and taking into account the natural shifting of topography, Pickering is sure that the Lakota camped in the valley near the 9th Ave SW entrance to the park — in the flat area just over the bridge, between the river and the hills to the east. The low land had easy access to water and was protected; during times of flooding, the camp could be moved up the ridge into higher land. Although the river curves around the valley, the natural river crossing wasn’t too far away — further south, near what is now Connor Park. The choice to settle here made it possible for the Lakota to live a more traditional roaming and hunting lifestyle for 30 years longer than those in America. Their proximity to Moose Jaw also allowed them the ability to work and trade in the town. It was a poignant moment for Clayton Getz Smoker, who sits on the WACA board, to stand on the piece of land that so many Lakota inhabited over 100 years ago. “You can close your eyes and just imagine the elders standing on the hill over there,” said Smoker. “We used to live here, this is our home, and it’s beautiful.”
He was glad to see people come down for the historical tour and is proud of the events going on during the week leading up to National Indigenous Peoples’ Day. “This is the first Aboriginal Week, and it’s a big success, and I hope it goes on for years and years,” said Smoker.
Rich Pickering pointed out the geological features in an old photograph of the Lakota chiefs, and how it matches the area the group is standing in.
Immigrant workers sought to replace retirees and fill vacant jobs Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Moose Jaw is one of 11 rural and northern communities in Canada participating in a federal pilot project to attract new immigrants to work and live in these locations. As the Canadian population ages and the birth rate declines, rural workforces have seen a significant decrease in available workers, according to a federal news release. This pilot project will attract the best talent from around the world to help drive economic growth, fill skills shortages and support middle-class jobs. The participating communities will have access to various supports to test this “innovative, community-driven model that will help fill labour gaps,” the news release added. These particular locations were selected as a representative sample of regions across Canada. They will assist in laying out the blueprint for the rest of the country. A similar project occurred in Atlantic Canada to meet the needs of the labour force there. The four Atlantic provinces have endorsed more than 2,500 workers
so far this year. Attracting new workers is one of the goals of the municipality’s economic development strategy since it needs a workforce, Jim Dixon, Moose Jaw’s manager of economic development, told the Moose Jaw Express. Jobs will need to be filled in the coming years, especially in the South East Industrial Park, where companies such as SaskPower will set up new businesses. “It’s a way to ensure newcomers are welcome in our community … ,” Dixon added. “We put together a very impressive application (in collaboration with the chamber of commerce and the South Central Regional Immigrant Partnership (SCRIP)) and were selected. It’s a good news story.” The Moose Jaw Multicultural Council also provided a reference letter to support this endeavour, said Stefanie Palmer, executive director for the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council (MJMC). “I think (the pilot project is) a good thing … ,” Palmer said. “Our small towns
Moving to a new country can be a culture shock, so it’s important that immigrants have resources and information about their new community, Palmer said.

Corner Gas show had nothing on Con’s Corner in its heyday By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express
One day this spring, a couple drove into the former Con’s Corner business and asked owner Gene Ward if they could look around. “I kinda remember this place. I grew up down here,” said the fellow. For 50 years Con’s Corner Cafe, 20 miles south of Moose Jaw, was a hub of activity featuring over the years, a cafe, gas pumps, confectionery, bulk fuel and a mechanical repair shop. Ward and wife Rolene, who owned the business from 1973 until 1989 when they closed it, don’t want the memories forgotten so a special sign in memory of the place will be dedicated June 29 at 4 p.m. “It’s just a heritage thing. I don’t want people forgetting about it. The more gen-
erations go on the less they’re going to recall. “It was a spot that people used to stop. This is where they had their pie and ice cream and gassed up.” The business started in 1939 when Con and Kay Walz bought it and moved it up Highway Two to this location. Local farmer John Hales recalls: “Con had an old Jeep with a trailer and a welder on it” to serve area farmers. Until power came in 1954, Con’s Corner had the the only electricity made from a diesel generating plant. Some of Hale’s earliest memories are the old gas bowsers with gasoline in glass up top. And he remembers the ice cream his mother used to buy, take home to make milkshake treats in summer. “There’s a million stories,” said Hales. “You had to be there to enjoy them. Corner Gas has nothing on us. They should have come to us to see what it was like.” Starting work in 1942, a character called Bob Armstrong became a fixture. “You had to know Bob. He fixed all kinds of stuff. Bob would go ahead and drop a million dollars’ worth of sales to help you.” Once in Regina, someone told Hales “that tall dude in coveralls” (Armstrong) made the best coffee in southern Saskatchewan and wondered what was in it. “It’s like Col. Sanders, a special recipe with a hand full of calcium chloride,” replied Hales. Ward says the business attracted customers from Ponteix, Mankota and Bengough on the way to and from Moose
Jaw and Regina. “Bob and I would sit there until midnight waiting for guys to come back so we could fuel them up so they had enough gas to get home. “We had quite a few night calls,” says Ward, and in winter a lot of storm stayed guests. “In that bad winter of 1973-74 I can’t remember how many stayed over in blizzards. One weekend there were hockey fans from Bengough. They were stranded two days. The deep freeze got pretty low.” The business was still there in 1989 but after 17 years “I wasn’t prepared to do it anymore and then computers started coming in. I had enough,” Ward said.

Time for governments to build rural region with water/irrigation projects When Saskatchewan hosted an international irrigation conference in Saskatoon, provincial irrigators made a surprising discovery. This province has the largest untapped irrigation potential of any place in the world — both in land and water supply. Another 500,000 acres of irrigation could be added in the Lake Diefenbaker/Gardner Dam region with another 500,000 acres possible in the rest of the province. These Lake Diefenbaker/Gardner Dam projects involve 125,000 acres north of Moose Jaw towards Tugaske and 375,00 acres in the Conquest area, west of Outlook. Currently the area has 300,000 irrigated acres. Irrigation has substantial benefits from sustaining and growing rural communities to allowing farmers to grow more value on what was dry land. The irrigation communities in southern Alberta have fostered new crops – sugar beets, sunflowers, beans, corn, peas, potatoes and forage – as well as jobs in the plants that process and package the products made from these crops.
Irrigation boosts the value of production by $495 an acre. Imagine adding almost $300 million to the province’s gross domestic product with irrigation. Saskatchewan Irrigation Projects Association president Aaron Gray told the recent Saskatchewan Stock Growers convention that government would see a $1.88 return on investment for every $1 invested in irrigation works. The 215-acre Erlandson Farm north of Outlook uses irrigation to grow 60 kinds of vegetables that are marketed to farmers’ markets and the Co-op. This operation employs 30-35 workers on farm and another 15 off the farm. It’s hard to imagine one job sustained by 215 acres of dry land farm. Current irrigation uses only three per cent of the water in this huge reservoir filled by waters from the Rocky Mountains. Seven years ago Western Economic Diversification and the province produced a feasibility study on the proposed Buffalo Pound Water Conveyance Channel from Lake Diefenbaker to supply water to 270,000 southern Saskatchewan residents and allow development of irrigation

north of Moose Jaw. The study warned of southern Saskatchewan water shortages by 2024 – that’s only in five years – if this 10-year project weren’t started. The study has been collecting dust on the shelf while the province fights with the federal government over socalled constitutional matters that appear remarkably political in nature. Isn’t it about time our political leaders at all levels quit scrapping like back alley cats and did something to build the economy? Gray believes the political will to proceed isn’t there and how to fund irrigation plans are holding up expanded irrigation water supply projects. The feasibility study outlined a funding model based on one-half long-term bonds and one-half funds from federal and provincial governments. The time has come for governments to get off their collective butts and work to build the rural economy they pretend to adore. Ron Walter can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

On the Front Porch
Beef still belongs on Canadian food plates: dietitian By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
by Wanda Smith
I recently read an article suggesting that many affluent English children today are experiencing the same types of mental health challenges that children in refugee camps in Jakarta had experienced. Kim John Payne, author of “Simplicity Parenting,” concludes that children who deal with “too much” can be suspect to being pushed into the realm of disorder. He conducted a study of children dealing with attention deficit disorder in which he simplified their lives for a period of time. Within four months, the children had shown exceptional improvement in their functionality as well as their clinical and cognitive aptitude. Payne suggests there are four aspects in which we have too much excess: in our possessions, in the choices we expect our children to make, too much information to process and going through life too quickly. This leads me to wonder if we, as adults, are also experiencing large amounts of stress due to “too much.” Streamlining our lives will help to bring a sense of order and balance to our lives. Melissa Michaels, author of “Dwelling: Simple Ways to Nourish Your Home, Body & Soul,” writes that “...when we prune down what is truly valuable to our well-being, we finally appreciate and benefit from what remains.” We need to be courageous as individuals and parents to create a simplified life in order to be present in our reality. Just because “everybody is doing it” does not mean it brings the results everyone is looking for. It’s time to take back our lives and live in the moment. Michaels suggests, “its okay to say no, or not today, or not in this season.” As I think of the ways we’ve streamlined our family life, I am thankful for the outcome of a stronger family unit. As I’ve streamlined our home, I’m thankful I can find important documents when needed or be free to have company over or leave home on a moment’s notice without cringing about the mess I’m leaving behind. “A lifestyle of well-being becomes effective when we take care of ourselves (and our homes) on a continuous not momentary basis.” (Melissa Michaels) To streamline is to simplify your process and priorities. Setting priorities is pivotal in streamlining your life. Joyce Zook, a military wife and mother, says, “Time management isn’t enough when your priorities are out of line.” Setting priorities such as maintaining a clean home, serving wholesome meals, spending time with spouse and family, taking time to be in the Word and fellowshipping with other believers, and cultivating close friendships with peers and mentors are all matters of great importance in our lives. It is a freeing sensation when things are in order in our home and our schedule is streamlined in order to accomplish the priorities we have set as a couple and family. The Word of God suggests we live an orderly life, too. “...teach the younger women to ...be self-controlled and pure, taking care of the household and being devoted to their husbands.” Paul addressing those in leadership, encourages us to do “...all things in a beautiful and orderly way.” God is not the author of confusion. Be encouraged to live a lifestyle of well-being; simplifying your process and priorities and begin to enjoy the benefits of streamlined living. Scripture references: Titus 2:3-5, 1 Corinthians 14:40
Media chatter about the new Canada EXPRESS Food Guide was incorrectly framed on plant-based protein versus meat protein, according to media personality and dietitian Carol Harrison. “Nowhere in the Canada Food Guide does it say we should eat less red meat,” she told the Saskatchewan Stock Growers’ Association conference in Moose Jaw. In fact, the new food guide gives beef just as prominent a place as any other protein and “we should be eating all these foods.” Protein diet content was bumped up to one-quarter of the food plate. Foods in the guide are not interchangeable. “Every food has a unique package of nutrients” from omega three in fish, fibre from lentils to choline from eggs, amino acids and Vitamin B12 from beef. Beef offers a nutrient dense food. “Few foods can match the nutrient density of beef” – an excellent source of five nutrients, good source of four and a source of three. “It’s hard to pack more nutritional goodness in such a small package.” A piece of beef about the size of a deck of cards (75 grams) has 184 calories and 26 grams of protein. To get the same amount of protein you would have to have seven tablespoons of peanut butter or two bowls of hummus or two cups of black beans or 700 calories of almonds. Canadians don’t eat enough vegetables and fruit with only five per cent of our calories from fresh red meat. “Fifty per cent of the calories are coming from natural

The sign on Peter Boerma’s 1929 Essex invites viewers to open the door and sit inside. “Most collectors have a ‘Do not touch,’” said Boerma, showing at the Rockglen Show and Shine. “I like to see people enjoy the car. It’s not like it’s in valuable shape.” The Coronach resident had a lot of fun over a year re-building the rusty hunk and converting it into a hot rodder. His handiwork includes a gopher mounted hood ornament, 454 horsepower Chevy engine, 18-inch rear tires, beer ad signs as interior door panels, blue jean seat covers, a fire extinguisher cylinder for a gear shift console and rear lights mounted on old pistons from a coal hauler. “It’s licensed to drive. I don’t know how fast it goes. The speedometer is broke. But it goes pretty fast.” He doesn’t travel too much with the Essex as it is missing the back window. Boerma has been to several car shows and was headed to Glasgow, Montana the next day.

processed food, prepared packaged sweet and baked goods, pop, chips. “It’s out of control. These foods are high in calories and they are low in nutrients. The focus on animal versus plant protein ignores this tsunami of health problems coming our way if we don’t address the ultra-processed foods.” Key Canada Food Guide statements recommend eating less processed foods and more whole foods. Clever marketers are putting plant-based labels on everything from cookies to beer, distracting from the real food needs. “Food should be all about minimally processed or whole foods versus those that are ultra-processed.” Harrison tackled health and environmental claims of the Beyond Meat burger. “When we say people should eat more plant-based foods an ultra-processed Beyond Meat burger is not what we had in mind. Beyond Meat burger actually has 22 ingredients and 11 nutrients that have been added to make the burger. And beef is just a single ingredient. “What is the environmental footprint of 22 ingredients and 11 nutrients? What is the environmental footprint of 50 per cent of all our calories from processed food?” Dehydrated pomegranate juice is a Beyond Meat burger ingredient, with a large carbon footprint being grown far away, picked, transported, crushed and dehydrated for the plant-based burger. She said Canadians don’t eat enough protein, averaging 17 calories on a recommended scale of 10 to 35 calories. “It’s a myth that we’re eating too much protein.”

Forever In Our Hearts DAVID NORMAN PIERCE 1951 – 2019
It is with tremendously sad hearts that we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and brother, David Norman Pierce on Thursday, June 13th, 2019. He was predeceased by his parents, Ken and Bertha Pierce; brother, Bob (Joan) Pierce; sister, Lynda (Al) Schantz; brother, Danny (Viv) Pierce; nephew, Cody Pierce and uncle, Darold Pierce (Vi). Dave will be lovingly remembered by his wife, JoAnn; children, Taryn (Jared) and Andrew (Jacqueline); blended family: children, Kirsten (Jeremy) August and Kenton (Anjelica) Farrow; grandchildren: Connor, Harlow, Eli, Sydney and Addison; brothers: Pat (Pricilles), Mike (Jennifer), and Mark; sisters, Carol (Raimo) Kujula and Kathie (Howard) Cordick; and special aunt, Vi Pierce. Dave was born in Montreal, QC on August 24th, 1951. The Pierces moved shortly thereafter to Moose Jaw, SK. After high school Dave worked with his father and brothers installing floor coverings. Dave married Connie Hamilton and they had two children, Taryn and Andrew. Dave spent 30 years working for the City of Moose Jaw, most of those as the City Assessor. While still working for the City, he met his current wife JoAnn Farrow, and his family expanded to include Kirsten and Kenton. Dave was known to many as “Butch”, but the titles of Grandpa and “Bumpa” brought him the most joy. Time spent with family and his five grandkids were of the utmost importance. Dave was lucky to call both Moose Jaw and the Okotoks area home, and his loss will be felt in both places. Dave and JoAnn enjoyed many northern fishing trips, trips to Mexico, Hawaii and Aruba, playing darts and pool, working on their acreage yard, visiting with friends new and old. Dave was an easy going, friendly guy who will be remembered by many and always loved so dearly by his family. A Celebration of Dave’s Life will be held in Moose Jaw on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Foothills Country Hospice, 322001 32St E, Okotoks, AB T1S 1A5 would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Michelle Surtees, Funeral Director 306-693-4550 www.moosejawfuneralhome.com

Beef cows not causing climate change: air quality scientist By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
Beef farmers are AGRIMART generally shy, EXPRESS reluctant to talk about their industry, says a California-based agricultural air quality scientist. “That has to stop,” Dr. Frank Miteloehner of the University of California told the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association conference in Moose Jaw. If farmers fail to tell their story “your special friends” as he referred to anti-beef advocates and environmentalists, will continue talking and perpetuating myths about the beef industry. Beef cattle get a bad rap for methane emissions because of myths, said the German-born scientist. One of those myths started when the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) issued a 2006 analysis saying that global agriculture accounts for 18 per cent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the same amount as transportation by trucks, trains and ships. Shocked by the study Miteloehner delved into the issue. The study “was flawed” in the method used to compare agriculture and transportation emissions. Agricultural emissions were based on a life cycle study from the cow’s birth to feeding, slaughter, processing and retailing. “They didn’t do a life cycle for transportation. They didn’t account for emissions from making the steel in trucks, trains and ships.” Miteloehner called the FAO study flawed and that was accepted by the FAO, which reduced its estimate of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. The British BBC ran a story on the change but it wasn’t picked up by the media globally. The media still uses the transportation comparison to show how large agriculture emissions are. “Belching cows, farting cows are not a significant emissions source,” he said. Globally, cattle produce an enormous amount of methane gas – 560 terra-tonnes. Those same cattle recycle 550 terra-tonnes of methane gas, leaving about two per cent in the air. “Your special friends will talk about the 560 terra-tonnes but they won’t talk about the other part.”

There are three GHGs of concern – carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane. Carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide blanket the earth and keep sun’s rays from reflecting back to the sun for “hundreds, thousands of years.” Methane gas lasts 10 years in the atmosphere before dissolving into water and carbon dioxide. Agricultural emissions are a growing concern in developing countries where productivity is low. In America, beef farmers have used about the same amount of inputs for decades but tripled production. China, by contrast looses 20 per cent of the pig population — 400 million piglets — before they get to market, increasing GHGs..

Inadequate vet care and management cause the high mortality rate. In the U.S., agriculture accounts for nine per cent of GHGs with transportation at 29 per cent, electricity at 28 per cent and industry at 22 per cent. Beef production emissions are about two per cent of the total. One-third of U.S. land is marginal, suited only for livestock. Cultivating it would increase emissions, he said. Burning of fossil fuels is the real source of GHGs. “Don’t be ashamed to share your story.” Ron Walter can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
