Nursing student hosts fundraiser for mental health awareness Jason G. Antonio

Spencer Noble began struggling with anxiety in Grade 11 and felt more stressed when she reached Grade 12, especially as her graduation date approached. “It was tough for me to find out, like, who I was,” she said. “I felt like I had continuing anxiety all the time because I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing or who I was. “I felt like I had too much on my plate and literally didn’t know how to relax. And that was the problem because I didn’t know how to do self-care.” Noble, 18, began running, walking and exercising to reduce her stress. She also began talking with family and friends about her struggles. Today the second-year nursing student is doing well mentally and has learned to control her anxiety. She thinks positively since that also helps her. To show her appreciation for the support she received, Noble is holding a walk/run fundraiser for mental health in conjunction with the Friends of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). The event takes place Sunday, Aug. 18 at Spring Creek Park, which is bordered between Ninth Avenue Northwest and Thatcher Drive, and Simcoe Street and Normandy Drive. Registration takes place at 7:30 p.m. and the run/walk commences at 7:45 p.m. The event is expected to finish by 9 p.m. Participants will meet at the park on the south side by the mailboxes, close to Simcoe and 11th Avenue. There is no registration fee, but donations are accepted. Income tax receipts will be issued for donations over $10. For advance registration or more information, email spencernoble@hotmail.ca or text 306-690-8246. If you are unable to attend but would like to donate, contact the CMHA Moose Jaw branch at 306-692-4240. Participants are encouraged to either leave their phones behind or turn them off while participating since it’s healthy to be in the present moment. “We’re really happy that she gave us a call to bring awareness of mental health in the community … . We’re really excited about (this) event,” Nema Atsu, CMHA branch director in Moose Jaw, said, adding all funds raised will go to the branch’s peer-support program. “I think it’s awesome that young people are getting involved and trying to spread word about mental health and mental illness recovery, that the young people care about the issue and want to do something about it.” Noble also wants residents to join her at Starbucks on Main Street a week before the walk/run, on Sunday, Aug. 11 from 5 to 10 p.m., to participate in an uplifting activity. Residents are encouraged to come create kindness notes with quotes or pictures that will cheer up people suffering from mental illnesses, or posters that address mental health awareness. These notes and posters will be hung up at the mental health run/

Photo courtesy Spencer Noble walk fundraiser at Spring Creek Park. Noble believes Moose Jaw needs more support to address mental illness and improve mental health. Many of her friends and family have talked to her about their struggles, while she knows there are many more affected in the community. She also works at Pioneer Lodge and deals with people suffering from dementia, which she noted is a type of mental illness. “It seems like everyone around me is just dealing with their own struggles,” she continued, adding she believes this run is needed to generate awareness, to raise money for the CMHA and to create more conversations. Noble began developing the idea for a walk/run for mental health in April and then finally decided to go all-in around late May. Her family is supportive of this endeavour and plans to help set up the site. They have even purchased mental health T-shirts to wear during the run. Her friends are also promoting this event on social media. “Everyone seems to like it,” she added.

Local optometrist awarded for work with mobile eye health unit Larissa Kurz

Dr. Shannon Gatrell joined the Primary Eye Care Centre team in Moose Jaw in 2008, and her work here in southern Saskatchewan is being recognized with a prestigious award. The Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists (SAO) has named Gatrell as the 2018-19 Optometrist of the Year. The award is given to one SAO member who has contributed to advance the field of optometry in a meaningful way, and Gatrell’s work in helping to make vision care more available to rural and remote communities is what put her in the spotlight with the association. Beginning last May, Gatrell and members of the Primary Eye Care Centre team have been traveling to a handful of First Nations reserves in the southern part of the province to provide eye care to those in need. Gatrell began by taking her mobile clinic to Carry the Kettle Nakoda Nation, before expanding to also visit Cowessess First Nation and Ochapowace Cree Nation as well. She is planning on returning to each reserve at least twice a year, more often if possible.

The mobile clinics are focusing largely on eye exams for children, as many children actually have never had their eyes checked before, although Gatrell certainly takes adult or diabetic patients if time allows. “There’s definitely a need for it. I’d say probably about half of the kids that I’ve seen have not ever had their eyes checked,” said Gatrell. “It’s been good to be able to provide the service right on the reserve and without the kids having to leave.” For Gatrell, being able to offer her services in this way is extremely fulfilling. She grew up near Broadview, in the same area as Cowessess First Nation and Ochapowace Cree Nation, and so it feels like coming home to help familiar faces. “I myself am half First Nations, my mom’s side of the family is from the Ochapowace First Nation,” said Gatrell. “So with that background, it’s been rewarding to be able to serve in my own community and give back.” Gatrell is proud to be the recipient of the Optometrist of the Year award, and

happy with the recognition for the work she is doing. “It’s very humbling; I wasn’t expecting it at all,” said Gatrell. “It was something that I chose to do because I wanted to do it, but it’s always an honour to be recognized by your peers, for those efforts.” Gatrell is also the past recipient of two awards from the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, the 2004 Circle of Honour Youth Role Model Award and the 2015 Strength of Our Women award in the Health and Wellness category. The mobile eye care clinics will continue, and Gatrell hopes to see more optometrists consider offering their services in the same way. “There are a lot of other reserves who have expressed interest in having me or an optometrist come out,” said Gatrell. “I can’t go to every reserve myself, but hopefully, more optometrists will choose to do the same and provide services.”

Culture Days still looking for communities to join in Larissa Kurz

Culture Days is approaching, and for communities who haven’t yet hosted an event — or perhaps only done it once before — there is still a chance for sponsorship available. Applications to the South West District for Recreation and Sport are open until Aug. 15, for a community seeking sponsorship to bring in a Saskatchewan artist to teach a free, hands-on cultural activity during the weekend of Culture Days on Sept. 27-29. There’s a wide range of event topics that could include: music, art, folk dance, heritage activities, and so on. The sponsorship is being offered through SaskCulture, who also have a number of free resources, workshops, and swag available to communities planning events for Culture Days. Christie Saas, executive director for the South West District, encourages communities to put forth their event proposals, which can be submitted using the form on www.gosouthwest.ca. The committee chose to take applications rather than submit one community to SaskCulture for consideration for a specific reason. “We wanted to see which communities were interested before we submitted the applications to SaskCulture to be selected,” said Saas. “We just want to encourage cultural exploration in our communities, in whatever way they want.”

Geoff Phillips, a local artist from Maple Creek, held a mural painting workshop in Climax last year, supported by the Animateur sponsorship from SaskCulture. (supplied: Climax Community Museum, Art, and Culture Centre)

Culture Days is on its tenth anniversary, and communities across Saskatchewan take part in the weekend to highlight the unique parts of their area with a number of different kinds of events. SaskCulture outreach coordinator Dominga Robinson says the emphasis is on getting communities involved in what they themselves have to offer. “It gives them an opportunity to come together as a community and explore people’s different talents and abilities and to potentially get new people coming out to engage in these activities in the future,” said Robinson.

Saskatchewan has film festivals, historic tours, art and music workshops, and more already planned in various places, all of which highlight the culture of their area and hope to engage their communities on a cultural level. The hope is that successful events on this weekend could expand into more programs throughout the year.

Farmer’s Market will stay put despite adjacent construction Larissa Kurz

Langdon Crescent will only be accessible from Cordova St. and Fairford St. E for most of August.

MLA’s Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

There are a number of symbols that bring out the pride of our Province. One of the most notable is our provincial flag. The pride in the Saskatchewan flag has been amplified over the past month as we commemorate 50 years since its inception in 1969. To promote this anniversary, events with special festivities have taken place in its honour. The attendance of designer Anthony Drake further captured the pride we see in this iconic symbol that provides our province with distinction. I was privileged to visit with Anthony Drake and his wife Joan. They are British citizens who were teaching in Hodgeville from 1967 to 1969. Through a public contest, over 4,000 flag designs were submitted. One of the 13 designs submitted by Mr. Drake was selected. The

The Farmer’s Market is preparing for some accessibility issues for the month of August, as construction on Athabasca St. will close down the block adjacent to the weekly markets. The City of Moose Jaw announced construction on Athabasca St. E, from Main Street to 1st Ave NE and partially on the intersection onto Langdon Crescent. There are no plans to move the morning and evening markets off of Langdon Crescent, although this will limit the access to the Farmer’s Market on that side of Crescent Park. Keri Fox, a member of the Farmer’s Market board, spoke to the impact of the closure. “We’re a little bit concerned about accessibility. We don’t want people to be turned away because we only have two access

simple design of the southern prairies (yellow) and the northern forestry (green) including the Saskatchewan coat of arms and the provincial flower emblem of the Western Red Lilly encapsulates our province in is simplest, yet absolute detail. I met Anthony Drake and his wife Joan three years ago on their first visit back to Saskatchewan since his design was accepted. He never actually observed the winning design of the flag as they had returned to England before the final selection was made. It was a pleasure to meet them again through the organization of Gale Hapanowicz, now a resident of Hodgeville, who realized the significance of this unique prairie town in the history of the flag on its 50th anniversary. Anthony Drake is a humble man. His friendly, welcoming demeanour would indicate he is well-accepted by everyone he comes in contact with. He is very knowledgeable in a variety of subjects and his recollection of teaching in Hodgeville is nostalgic. Some of the details may have escaped him after 50 plus years; however his wife Joan is by his side to affirm dates, times and places. Anthony and Joan are now back in their homeland of England. Their time in Saskatchewan was busy with a variety of celebratory events including a Saskatchewan

points now, from Cordova (St.) and from Fairford (St.),� said Fox. “We’re going to try and put up some extra signs and do some extra advertising just to let people it is still going on.� The sectioned off block of Athabasca St. E will hamper the accessibility to parking, but market-goers can still approach from other directions and walk through Crescent Park to reach Langdon Crescent. Athabasca St. E is already blocked off, and the construction could, according to the city, take between four and six weeks to complete. This leaves the remainder of the summer markets affected. The market’s hours will be undeterred and will run every Wednesday night, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday morning, 8 a.m. -1 p.m, as usual.

Roughrider game, the Saskatchewan Air Show, Tea at Government House, a luncheon at the Swift Current Bentley Senior Centre, and the Shaunavon Fair. They packed in a lot of events, met a number of people, travelled thousands of kilometres, and always had the same friendly smile, warm greeting, and happy to discuss the flag or any subject that would arise. I had an opportunity to visit with Anthony and Joan just prior to the conclusion of his visit. Saying goodbye was difficult as, through this short period of time, we had developed an honourable relationship. I felt that I had gained through this relationship of understanding, knowledge, respect and admiration for a person that humbly had made a significant and lasting imprint on millions of people through the creation of one of our most cherished provincial emblems, the Saskatchewan flag. It was an honour and privilege to have them return to Saskatchewan on this momentous anniversary.

Trough Feeding Swine? My wife and I moved here 10 years ago from Regina and have witnessed how inept city hall is run. An example is the s.a.m.a suggesting our property tax at Lynbrook Place should be lowered by a thousand dollars; but instead they raised it five hundred. I could spend the afternoon telling you other outrages. I would like to see a house cleaning at city administration, with the exception of Brian Swanson. If the whole board is in complete agreement with all the issues we only need one. I am hoping others will reveal their frustrations as well with City Hall administration.

Moose Jaw residents are seldom bashful when it comes to supporting local teams set to embark on regional, provincial, national and even world competitions. Our track record of support speaks for itself and therefore Tony Dreger should not have been surprised at the support his Little League 12U AAA All-Stars received before the team left Moose Jaw to play in the national championship in Ancaster, Ont. The Moose Jaw team had a remarkable season, then won the provincial/Prairie title that set in motion the plans for the team to represent Saskatchewan at the next level. While team parents no doubt came up with a substantial mitt of cash in support of the team and league activities, the community also came forward, without being asked, to provide travel resources for our players and coaching staff. The 13U Canucks came up with the idea of selling candy, chips and frozen treats to raise some money, enduring hot summer temperatures to support another Moose Jaw group of players. Fundraising efforts snowballed from there with calendar advertising sales, a Sarcan drop and go account, pizza nights and barbecues at the three Co-op locations — allowing the Moose Jaw residents a chance to give financial cheers to this young group of ball players. The championships run from Aug. 1 to Aug. 10, with the winner heading to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. In Ancaster, our team will be housed in an athletes’ village and will be looked after in world class fashion by a community that has had to raise more than $200,000 over two years to be host for the competition. More than 200 volunteers have also come forward — much like what happens in Moose Jaw when we play host to sporting or cultural events. Moose Jaw fans will be able to cheer from their armchairs as 21 of the 24 games will be live-streamed on the CBC website. The semifinal and final game will be seen live on CBC sports. Imagine, if we might look into the future, how exciting it would be to see our boys in that semi or final. And don’t forget to check daily results on Moose Jaw Today. The best wishes of Moose Jaw residents go with the Moose Jaw/Provincial All-Stars. Do your best, have fun and bring home memories that will last a lifetime.

My Mistake… In my last Rob’s Rant, regarding City Hall, I included the line…”How about something that picks your craw, just drop us a line and we will see what we can find.” Perhaps this was a mistake, as I certainly did not expect such a response and on so many varied issues. It is becoming obviously clear to me that we have a potential cesspool in the whole confines of City Hall and administration. I find this disheartening. We now have to deal with issues that involve people and their performances, keeping in mind we may like them as friends and fellow Moose Javians. It all boils down to… when we the taxpayers are ponying up the bill, then everyone should be expected to do their jobs. It seems this city refuses to communicate with the public, believing keeping us in the dark will keep us quiet, and it appears to me when Brian Swanson in particular has inquires of administration, that they tend to respond incoherently, hoping he will go away, but perhaps the problem isn’t Swanson, this disrespect shown by administration brings me to boiling point. The other question brought to light by a reader, was why do we always pick on Swanson, why is the vote always 6 for 1 against. I think the answer is pretty simple, Brian is the only one who always asks questions, and perhaps the most qualified of the bunch. I wonder which person who sits in those lofty chairs I would want to run my business or finances, and as put in a letter to the editor, if you have six heads always nodding in agreement with no intelligent input, then why are we paying them, bobbleheads would cost us less money. We are working to make every effort to change that attitude in City Hall, or hoping the public will instigate change come election time. The city’s communication specialist seems to believe that social media and radio are the only mediums that are effective in conveying the city’s message, and ignoring the fact that Moose Jaw Express and Moose Jaw Today deliver the news to over 35,000 readers every week and over 300,000 page views monthly respectively and we have the largest media footprint in the region and the third largest in this province. My beliefs are founded on this because the city commu-

This city still belongs to the people; and our public servants need to serve instead of being self-serving. If we [the city] want to run with the big boys, then we need to be seen as a city that acts with honesty, integrity, respect and offers a solid foundation for businesses to build-on and prosper. It is said, ‘As business goes, so goes the community.’ Rob Ritchie, Publisher

nications department sends out media alerts and PSA’s (public service announcements) at a whim’s notice, flying by the seat of their pants, believing only 12-24 hrs notice of major street repairs, etc. is acceptable to the general public. I have appealed to the Mayor about this, but again to no avail, our readers and the citizens are entitled to better communication. A large sign that impedes traffic on 9th Ave is not communicating and I doubt anyone else could put a sign that close to the road way. A paid independent company facilitated a local survey for the Moose Jaw Express and it shows that more people (67%) still read the paper than use online locally, and a whole 19% are engaged with our local radio station; more people listen to CBC and car dealers push Sirius, so the writing is perhaps on the wall, but not for this newspaper. Newspaper is also the only medium that is held to a higher standard of honesty and integrity. In fact CNN and other online web pages, blogs and radio, are not held to the same standard; that is why print needs to be accurate. It is final and can not be changed and that is the reason newspapers are called “the public record.” Our job is simple, seek truth and report it. It might also be the reason the City of Moose Jaw avoids it. So where do you want to get your reliable true news from? If the city and its communication department don’t know within 24 hours of a major work within the city facilitated by their works department, then they have bigger issues than just getting the word out to the community. To me, that is just blatant disrespect for the citizens who pay taxes here; keeping them in the dark, and don’t tell me that everyone clings closely to their radio or waits by their cell phone for that next social media ding for what could be a one-time brief announcement from our city, seriously. It’s time for the citizens of Moose Jaw to take our city back from those that seem have little concern for the community but only for their own pocketbooks. There are so many pressing issues here to get to the bottom of. At the Moose Jaw Express/Moose Jaw Today, we have committed to do this and need someone with some time to do research. So, if you are retired/semi-retired, and have some time on your hands and want to do a little digging and help expose any wrong, secret or corrupt dealings within City Hall, and to help correct it, then we invite you to contact us; there will be compensation for your research time. The hope is that together, we can have a City Hall that works for their taxpayers rather than running a derailed train on their own agenda.

TRADING THOUGHTS

How to lose 30 pounds in six months without any fitness strategy The headline on this piece might sound like a come-on, followed by talk about why weight loss is important and a pitch for a miracle weight loss product. It isn’t. I share this in the hope it can help someone else struggling with weight concerns. by Ron Walter Several years after marrying, my weight began turning up – from good cooking and lots of food, I’m sure. The weight gain didn’t bother me until one day parks and recreation director Andre Gate poked me in the tummy, commenting: “You’re too young to put on weight. What are you going to do when you get older?” I laughed and continued eating with special treats, large quantities of ice cream, fresh fruit and frequent consumption of beer and hard liquor while listening to country musicians at the old Royal Hotel.

Over the years the average gain was a mere two pounds a year. After open heart surgery in 2000, the weight dropped 10 per cent only to be slapped back in two years. The first year Yara Centre was open, frequent walking and not eating food after 7 p.m. lost me 17 pounds. Around that time I was tossing out old clothes. Among the items was a favourite 32-inch waist pair of dress pants with a green sheen worn in the 1960s and 1970s. Last fall, Yours Truly was in hospital twice for six days with heart and kidney concerns. The care was fantastic. The food was good with more than I could eat. The scale showed a loss of seven pounds – just from eating less. Motivation to lose weight has been my reason for not losing weight but my doctor provided one: If my kidney concerns were not set straight I would someday be a candidate for kidney dialysis. I remembered the last time I saw my friend Mike Fay some of you might remember this nice fellow as Santa Claus from local parades.

Three options possible for future of SaskPower plant in Moose Jaw, says chamber Moose Jaw Express Staff

Federation Co-operatives Limited (FCL) intends to purchase Terra Grain Fuels’ (TGF) 150 million litre-per-year ethanol plant near Belle Plaine as part of a mutual agreement between the two companies. The move would position local co-ops throughout Western Canada to continue to provide transportation fuels to members to meet existing renewable fuel standards. It would also help co-ops prepare for the incoming national Clean Fuel Standard, according to an FCL news release. No financial details were released. The 185,000-square-foot TGF plant — located on 152 acres — contributes more than $100 million annually to southern Saskatchewan by purchasing more than 400,000 metric tonnes of grain and other starch-rich crops from more than 400 pro-

ducers. The plant also processes and sells up to 160,000 tonnes of dried distillers grains (DDGs) every year. Operations at the plant began in 2008. The TGF plant became one of two major ethanol plants in the province that helps Saskatchewan produce 16 per cent of Canada’s ethanol. FCL is planning to build on what TGF has established by investing in the plant to make it more efficient and by pursuing carbon capture and storage technologies. FCL will continue to operate TGF with its 45 existing employees who have built up the plant and business over the last decade. TGF will keep working directly with all of its existing clients and partners. The sale of TGF, subject to certain closing conditions, was expected to close by May 31.

He was on dialysis, taken to Regina Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Recovering from it on the alternate days, it was a terrible way to live. Dieting began in earnest. I used to consume between 2,500 and 3,500 calories a day, really needing no more than 2,000. My partner tires of my smart phone consultations for the calorie count every time I eat. With kidney issues, reducing the amount of protein intake is crucial. Excess protein is processed by kidneys and discharged in urine – something that wears out the kidneys. From my readings, protein needs are 35 grams per hundred pounds of weight – in my case 78 grams. One eight ounce ribeye steak has 58 grams or two-thirds of daily needs. The dieting shed 30 pounds, hitting a plateau but my waist line has shrunk so much I’ve started wishing I hadn’t thrown out my favourite 32-inch waist pair of dress pants with the green sheen.

More than 230 vehicles on display during Moose Jaw Show and Shine Vintage cars and trucks mingle with hottest new rides during annual event in Happy Valley Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express

More than 200 vehicles took part in the Moose Jaw Show and Shine on Sunday afternoon in Happy Valley. With all the interesting cars, trucks, motorcycles and everything in-between on display at the Moose Jaw Show and Shine held on July 22, it would have been easy to pass by one of the oldest vehicles on show. But when that old vehicle is a 1917 Ford Model T in near showroom shape, you can bet it got a lot of second looks. Such was the case for Phil Siggelkow and his Model T, with the black icon of automotive history on hand three years after he purchased it at a farm dispersion auction and alongside Dake King, painstakingly restored the 102-year-old car to its present stage. “The body was a little rough with some rust and the engine had no compression, so we rebuilt the engine and the transmission, fixed the body and the upholstery… it took a little bit of time,” said Siggelkow in-between chatting with show and shine patrons. “I was always intrigued by the Model T; my parents had one at one point before my time. And I remember my neighbours having one… it’s an interesting vehicle.” Rebuilding the car wasn’t as difficult as one might think – when you’re working on the first mass-production car ever made, with over 15 million produced, odds are you’re going to find parts somewhere even at their ad-

vanced age. “They’re plentiful,” Siggelkow said. “There’s so many of them out there that we didn’t have a problem finding anything we needed.” For Weyburn’s Chad Barnes, sourcing material for his build came a lot easier. Like Siggelkow, his vehicle drew plenty of attention through the day – but his 1964 Chevy Impala SS had a decidedly different look. The crimson-coloured muscle car with white striping and interior was a thing to behold, solely because of its immaculate condition – and the massive 383 Stroker engine capable of 450 horsepower. “I drive it all the summer, and yeah, you can chirp the tires,” Barnes said with a laugh. “It’s a lot of fun to drive on a nice night, especially when you’ve put so much work into it.” Barnes picked up the vehicle back in 1984 and did a partial restoration through the ‘80s, including the interior, suspension and engine compartment, with further work to get it into competition condition continuing ever since. “Countless hours,” Barnes said when asked how long it took to rebuild the vehicle – a process that, in addition to the modern engine married to an Overdrive 700r4 transmission, also now includes rack and pinion steering,

There were plenty of impressive muscle cars on hand, including this ’67 Mustang.

This 2002 GMC Sonora Crew Cab might have had a few modifications from stock.

front disc and rear drum brakes, Chip Foose rims, a digital dashboard, air conditioning and power windows, just to name a few improvements. Those vehicles were among the more than 230 on site, with more arriving throughout the day. Happy Valley was packed with every vehicle imaginable, with an impressive crowd to enjoy the show.

A 1959 Ford Fairlane topped a line of impressive vintage vehicles.

This 1969 Mach 1 Super Cobra Mustang was a sight to behold near the front of the show.

Begin your Survivorman journey at Buffalo Pound Larissa Kurz

Although it may not make you an expert like Les Stroud, the Survivor Skills programs being offered at provincial parks around Saskatchewan could provide some useful knowledge when it comes to spending time outdoors. Every Friday night in July and August, Buffalo Pound Provincial Park has been hosting a series of informational sessions about important skills to have while hiking, camping, or just enjoying nature. Things kicked off on July 5 with a touch of the basics, before moving on to how to start a fire and how to build a shelter. The fire-starting how-to will return on Aug. 9 at 6:30pm, showing fire-starting methods like flint and steel wool to

On Aug. 10 at 2 p.m., the Survivor Skills session will be giving directions on how to use a compass and a GPS system when navigating in the bush, trails, or prairies — although the session itself will feature more games than aimless wandering. This will take place in the Elm View area of the park. The next two sessions include a run-down of the plants common to the area, which ones are edible, and which are useful for medicinal purposes, on Aug. 16 at 6:30 p.m. The final week will move on to recognizing signs of nearby animals, such as track or dropping, and what to do if you encounter certain wild animals on Aug. 23 also at 6:30 p.m. Being able to identify types of trees can come in handy Organizers have also added another session of the series for navigation.

Moose Jaw industrial park development is a long-term investment The largest land deal in the City of Moose Jaw’s history has been signed putting $7.8 million in the city’s bank account with another $36.7 million in development fees if and when the land is developed. Council and administration can justifiably crow and boast over this accomplishment. This deal offers awesome potential to Moose Jaw for future industrial development and also takes some of the heat off the city for economic development. If an investor wants to develop industry in Moose Jaw, the city just turns them loose on Carpere, the new industrial park owner. It could be that simple except the Carpere industrial park is just one of three industrial parks on the Prairies in the Carpere stable. Moose Jaw will compete with the others for industry. The company recently paid $2.2 million for a 317 acre industrial park in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba and owns an industrial park at Tisdale, Saskatchewan. Carpere’s web site is very general and promises investors and farmers great things with the Chinese agricultural

market seeming to be the target. Given current trade issues, we shouldn’t be looking for a lot of agricultural industry associated with China any time soon. In Moose Jaw, Carpere has plans to develop 64 acres of the industrial park into residential properties – not too far from the smell of the city’s sewage lagoon system. Developing an industrial park from scratch is a long-term venture. Just look at Moose Jaw’s history with Grayson Park. Opened in the early 1970s under provincial government ownership, later sold to Moose Jaw for $1, this park still isn’t full after nearly 50 years. Had the city not discounted lots around 2011, much more of Grayson Park would still be vacant land. Full development of an industrial park is more a function of local economic growth than of ownership, whether private or public. Why would private investors come to Moose Jaw, Portage La Prairie and Tisdale and plunk down millions of dollars to buy industrial land with no immediate prospect

of development? Why Moose Jaw, Lord? Multi-millionaires and billionaires are always looking for long-term investments to hedge against inflation to protect the value of their capital. What better long-term hedge than land located in the middle of nowhere in an agricultural-based centre? The famous author Mark Twain told his readers to buy land. “They’re not making any more.” Value of land in these industrial parks will keep up with inflation, likely increase at a rate faster than inflation. In the next 20 or 30 years, any industrial development attracted to the parks will be a bonus return for investors. Let’s hope Carpere finds plenty of industry soon, but don’t hold your breath waiting for it.

New group created to speak for downtown business community Jason G. Antonio

The Downtown Moose Jaw Association Inc. (DMJA) recently incorporated as an organization, with the objective to aid, stimulate, develop and beautify the downtown development area. Photo by Jason G. Antonio After a 14-year absence, a new organization has sprung up to provide a unified voice for the downtown business community and contribute to the community’s economic growth. The Downtown Moose Jaw Association Inc. (DMJA) recently incorporated as an organization, with the objective to aid, stimulate, develop and beautify the downtown development area, according to a news release. The association’s intention is to encourage economic growth and create spin off for the entire municipality. It also wants to work with business owners, managers and building owners in an efficient and successful manner. “I really am excited. I wouldn’t be part of it if I didn’t think it was really vital to our future,” association second vice-president Yvette Moore (Yvette Moore Gallery and Café) told the Moose Jaw Express. Moore is joined on the executive by president John Iatridis (The Mad Greek), vice-president Anita Minter (Temple Gardens Resort and Hotel), secretary/treasurer Crystal Milburn (Prairie Bee Meadery); directors Steve Tunison (Casino Moose Jaw), Alex Carleton (The Crushed Can

and Cask 82 Ale & Table) and Kim Martin (Trino’s Men’s Wear and Bib & Tucker); and representatives from the City of Moose Jaw, Tourism Moose Jaw and the Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce. “I’m very happy about this,” Mayor Fraser Tolmie told the Express, noting he is encouraged that the DMJA wants to be an economic driver for the area. The municipality has made efforts since last year to improve the appearance of the downtown, including cleaning the streets, maintaining flower pots and installing flags, he continued. Normally he receives negative comments about the downtown’s look, but he has not received any such feedback this year. “It’s about having some pride in our downtown,” Tolmie added. The board is submitting bylaws and identifying fee structure options, said Moore. She pointed out the idea to reform a downtown business association began a few years ago when the municipality created the Local Area Plan (LAP), which included the Downtown Development Area. “We will set ourselves some goals (when the executive meets in August) and see what we can do,” Moore said. “It’s a beautiful downtown but we can always do more.” Some goals the downtown association would like to pursue include accessing grants to bring in events; looking at heritage conservation; promoting the area as a place to live; helping the Farmers’ Market attract more people; building on the 25 years of the Christmas in October

shopping extravaganza; bringing more traffic downtown; and helping residents and visitors realize what services the area offers. Moose Jaw’s downtown is vibrant and growing, Moore said. She has visited many downtowns and believes this one is one of the strongest. “The thing we have that’s really special here is we have a very condensed, historic downtown, which makes it a little bit unusual and viable for some of the things we would like to do,” she added. “Sidewalk Days was a huge success and (there were) a lot of people in the downtown area,” said Tolmie. “We’re going to continue to try to attract people to our downtown core.” The mayor wants to build on the fact that, a few years ago, Expedia.ca named Moose Jaw’s downtown the third coolest place in North America. He pointed out with the publicity around Mac the Moose, tourism increased 30 per cent in May and 20 per cent in June. This can only bring more people to the area. Members of the association can also be the eyes of the downtown for the municipality, Moore remarked. A few members suggested to city hall that a few areas could be improved. That spurred the municipality to address those areas recently. “We’ve got some really hard-working business people downtown,” she added. “As a team, we can really bring it to the next level.”

Celebrate Saskatchewan Day at the WDM with crafts, scavenger hunts and videos Jason G. Antonio

The Western Development Museum (WDM) is celebrating all the great things this province has to offer by hosting several family friendly activities this coming Saskatchewan Day. There will be many Saskatchewan-inspired self-led activities on Monday, Aug. 5 that will take visitors throughout the building, while there will also be several films shown that highlight the province’s past and present, explained Karla Rasmussen, education and public programs co-ordinator at the Moose Jaw WDM. Her summer students have been working hard to put together a program everyone will enjoy, including a new Saskatchewan Day scavenger hunt. There will also be a big board that features the phrase, “My favourite thing about Saskatchewan is … .” This will allow visitors to write or draw what they most enjoy about the province. “It’s actually a very neat interactive mini-exhibit … and it’s going to be great to have here,” Rasmussen said. Several craft projects are also being offered, including button making. These activities are popular, said Rasmussen, especially since the WDM attempts to offer something for all ages and abilities. She pointed out the museum receives many new visitors over the summer who come from the west and east.

“The museum is kind of a neat stopping point for them,” she said. One of the newer exhibits the museum has featured during the last couple of years is a section called Winning the Prairie Gamble. This features a timeline of 100 years of Saskatchewan history, which wraps around the room and features little pieces of information. Rasmussen thought this was a great place to start, especially for those new to the museum or even the province. There are photos, newspaper clippings and artifacts, all of which provide an immersive experience. “It’s a good way to get a taste of Saskatchewan,” she said. The National Film Board is providing five videos that will be shown throughout the day. The first documentary is called The Regina Tele-A-Bus, from 1973. This is essentially about buses acting as a taxi service by coming to people’s doors and taking them to their destination. “The very first Uber,” Rasmussen chuckled. The second video is entitled Ride and looks at bare-back bronco riding in the province. This was made in 2017. A third documentary being shown is called No Other Place, which features five

The fourth video is We’re Here to Stay, a film that looks at seven farm families near Lestock who joined together in 1974 to pool their resources to keep their land. This helped them remain competitive with large-scale farming. “It’s a neat little snapshot from that era when things were starting to change for families,” said Rasmussen. The fifth video is called Grain Elevators, from 1981. This is a documentary that looks at the role grain elevators — dubbed

Prairie Sentinels — played, their day-today operations and the symbol they became. Rasmussen encourages everyone to visit the Western Development Museum on Saskatchewan Day since the WDM loves the province and is all about telling Saskatchewan’s stories. Several community and Saskatchewan vendors and artists will also be in attendance, while there will be a wide selection of crafts and wares to purchase besides the gift shop. A full list of vendors can be found on the WDM’s Facebook page.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS When there’s a clutch, a manual is required Is driving a standard transmission vehicle much the same as riding a bike in terms of once-learned, never-forgotten skills? I suspect I’m being led down some garden path by the person who told me that I would never forget the talent for Joyce Walter driving a standard shift. He For Moose Jaw Express advised that I would always ronjoy@sasktel.net know how to ride a two-wheeler, and that same philosophy could be applied to vehicles with clutches. Many years ago I did learn to drive by carefully depressing the clutch then shifting into the proper gear and moving forward and backward. The trick was to not ride the clutch but to gradually apply it when necessary. If the car didn’t bump and jerk like a saddle bronc at a rodeo, the driver was considered something of an expert. The expertise of clutching techniques was as ingrained in my age group as knowing how to send text messages is in today’s youngsters. We had no choice because for many

Neck pain adds to adolescent angst

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor I had neck and upper back pain as an adolescent. I remember it well because it was one of the reasons why I started to seek care from a chiropractor. I suffered a major car accident and a sport’s injury years earlier, which made sense as to why I experienced this type of pain. I see a number of adolescents in my chiropractic practice who have similar complaints. The striking difference between now and when I was a youngster, is that most of these adolescents do not have a history of a trau-

years only the rich and famous could afford cars without that extra foot pedal. And then the parent could afford an “automatic” and much of what I learned about gears was put on the back burner, until I obtained my own vehicle, an English Anglia that had a clutch and horrors, gears in opposite positions to what I had learned. After some practice it was as though I’d been driving that car forever, with only a few bumps and jerks. Over the past 40 years all the vehicles in our possession have been clutch-less and so when a car showed up in our driveway for carsitting, I looked at it with interest and counted the pedals — yes, gas pedal, brake and indeed-y, a clutch. The owner of the car handed me the keys and told me to take his beloved Corvette for a drive — if I wished. But I knew he wished I wouldn’t, but was too polite to say so. It wasn’t so much the clutch that held me back. It was the fact the car was so very low to the ground, ensuring I would have trouble getting in, and even more trouble getting out. Being so low to the ground was the best sort of security against theft carried out by older drivers who have difficulty bending and getting up from the ground.

And so it sat in our driveway, unmolested except by the eyes of neighbours and passersby who did a double take upon seeing such a carriage in our possession. Some even wondered if we had bought the Vette, going into our second childhood and no doubt slapping a mortgage on the dwelling to do so. I was so loathe to damage the vehicle that I refrained from wiping off leaves, dust and bird droppings, not wanting to be the one to smudge the paint job or leave a minuscule fingerprint behind. While disappointing not to have driven it at least around the block, or even sitting in it, there was a certain amount of relief when the owners came to claim their belongings. There’s been no letters from lawyers claiming harm and mischief to the Vette so I’m assuming the bird droppings came off without a trace and the leaves safely blew away. Could I have found the gears and used the clutch properly? Possibly, but if I ever want to practice, I’ll convince a salesperson to let me take a test drive in a vehicle with a clutch. Then I’d better hope a manual is provided.

matic event. The majority of these kids cannot identify a reason for their pain. Upon examination of their spines, these kids show limited mobility and muscle tightness. Interestingly, the quality of the muscle tightness is similar to the tightness seen in adults who have spent years sitting behind a computer. Kids are presenting with chronic symptoms and showing findings of chronic postural strain. Research tells us that up to 40 percent of adolescents experience musculoskeletal pain, like back and neck pain. This is up from nearly 23 percent in 1991 and nearly 30 percent in 2011. This is a chronic problem, and it is getting worse. So, if there is no history of trauma in many of these cases, why are so many kids getting spinal pain? Easy question I believe. Smart phones! My generation had no smart phones at that age. If my generation had neck in adolescence it was almost always due to some sort of injury. For kids these days, it

is more than likely from repetitive postural strain. I must sound like a broken record, the number of times I bring up this topic. It needs to be identified as a public health problem. Many kids who suffer from recurrent neck pain, experience it two to three times per week. Research shows it restricts activities of daily living, it is responsible for school absenteeism, and inferences with family routines. The social costs are bad enough and the financial costs will be evident in the decades to come. Chronic neck pain in youth will most likely lead to early spinal degeneration. Cost of treatment and disability will strain future governments, insurance companies and employers. It is often said that sitting is the new smoking. Maybe texting is an even newer smoking. The sad thing about this is that texting is sure to be with our kids forever. Musculoskeletal pain will be with them as well.

Model aircraft club continues soaring in Moose Jaw Jason G. Antonio

Participants of the Pity-Pat Fun Fly prepare their aircraft for flight. Photo courtesy Kerry Olson The drone of engines filled the air as dozens of model aircraft took to the skies as part of an annual event hosted by the Moose Jaw Radio Control Aircraft Club. The club recently held its Pity-Pat Fun Fly at Hamilton Flats near the dog park. The event was open to anyone affiliated with the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC). Eighteen hobbyists from Moose Jaw, Estevan, Regina and Swift Current spent the day showing off their planes and their aeronautic abilities. Kerry Olson, event chairman, said the Fun Fly went well. The activity helped everyone to build friendships, while it also allowed some members to show off their model planes, including a few powered by small two-stroke gasoline engines. The club began in the 1970s and is still using the same field since Day 1, Olson explained. He himself bought his first model airplane kit in 1984 and picked up a membership in MAAC about the same time. He moved to Moose Jaw 12 years ago and has been a member for 10 years. “The parts I love the most is the camaraderie and sharing of information … ,” he continued. “The biggest thrill I get out of it is actively having members teach new members and (helping) grow the hobby.” Anyone interested in joining can visit the club’s Facebook page. Membership is $75 per year and insurance with MAAC is $85 per year. Being a member gives hobbyists access to the flying grounds, as long as they are trained to fly an RC aircraft. One of the biggest changes Olson has seen since he started is the improvement in electronics. Similar to how TVs

enjoying the hobby instead of worrying about having to go home to recharge their machines. A gas-powered RC aircraft takes a little more knowledge to operate, Olson said. A battery-powered machine is similar to flipping a light switch: just turn it on and the machine will fly. The advanced electronics also allow operators to set timers to alert them when the battery is low. “The gas ones are a little more of a challenge. If a motor quits, you still have control of all your radio functions for the control surfaces, but you’re going to be a glider now instead of an airplane,” Olson smiled. The Moose Jaw Radio Control Aircraft Club meets at the Eagle’s Club on the first Saturday of every month, except for July and August, unless there is a special event. It plans mostly in the winter, although some members do fly if the weather is suitable. The group also has a clubhouse at its field near Hamilton Flats. It has a couple of lawn mowers to keep its 50 acres of grass clipped. Olson explained this helps prevent gophers from digging holes in the runway and badgers from digging bigger holes pursuing them. The club wants to add an RC truck track so it can attract younger members, although older hobbyists are also always welcome. “It’s a neat little hobby, that’s for sure,” Olson added.

Drones were also flown during the Moose Jaw Radio Control Aircraft Club’s recent event at Hamilton Flats. Photo courtesy Kerry Olson and radios have become better over the last 40 years, the electronics inside the RC aircraft have also advanced. The radios and receivers on the models all use 2.4 gigahertz frequencies, which eliminates jamming and ensures the models respond to input from the ground. “It’s also a lot more safe,” Olson added. Olson flies aircraft that are powered by nitro-burning two-stroke motors, while other members fly battery-powered machines. He pointed out the motors and drives of the RC aircraft have improved over the decades, while the quality of the batteries has also noticeably increased. The Moose Jaw Radio Control Aircraft Club installed a solar station at its site to help keep the batteries charged, Olson said. This ensures members can spend more time

Besides being tasty, blueberries are good for us, containing vitamins, calcium and iron. Blueberries are native to North America and in different areas are known by different names — Bilberry, Deerberry, Whortleberry and Hurt Berry. Frozen blueberries are exported from Canada to Europe and Japan, and some go to the United States. British Columbia is the major producer of cultivated blueberries in Canada. •••

Large load braves Moose Jaw traffic to reach its destination Larissa Kurz Your eyes have not deceived you: that was a house moving through Moose Jaw on July 17, heading towards its new location. The large load took up some space as it traveled slowly down Caribou St. E, destined for a new home in the city. Owner Cal Rader followed behind, pleased to see the bungalow home reach its destination late in the afternoon. He originally built the house in 2000 on his yard, 12 miles north of Parkbeg, and decided it was worth

bringing with him when he and his wife chose to move to Moose Jaw. Though the home’s journey did it’s best to avoid disrupting traffic, it had a police escort blocking the road ahead as it made its way down Highway 42 and over, since the house itself is as wide as the highway. A sight like this one was sure to turn a few heads as it meandered by, and Rader is glad to see the house finally settled in place.

Festival of Words once again a book-lovers dream Larissa Kurz

After 23 years, the Festival of Words has blossomed into a must-attend event in the Canadian literary landscape, and this year has certainly upheld that legacy. The featured authors, poets, and artists always bring something new and exciting to the table each year, and there is no doubt that the four-day event delivered once again. Authors, artists, and literature-enthusiasts flocked to Moose Jaw to enjoy the beautiful venues — The Public Library, the Mae Wilson Theatre, Mosaic Place — and to enjoy the quaint comfortability of the city itself. Featuring a diverse line-up of award-winning names, the Festival spotlighted an impressive array of voices from different ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and personal identities. Four days of informative workshops, captivating panels, and moving performances left no stone unturned; festival attendees absorbed the weekend’s features eagerly. Each panel reading was followed by an autograph session, keeping the Festival Bookstore brimming with activity and the literary guests’ pens busy. This year’s Poetry Slam Competition featured a new paywhat-you-can type of admission and displayed the prowess of each poet, with the event bringing in double the donations seen in previous years.

The Festival of Words featured many different types of writing again this year. The beloved Trivia Night at Bobby’s Place once again roused the crowd’s knowledge, and collaboration with Grant Hall allowed the Festival to debut a totally new dinner event, featuring the delicious recipes of cookbook author Renée Kohlman. Executive director Sarah Simison was pleased to see attendance for the Festival was up this year, and a number

of ticketed events completely sold out. “We work really hard to create a better and better program every year,” said Simison. “If people come and say they had a great time . . . and the authors are having a good time, then we know we’ve had a successful Festival, which we have.” The Festival is proud of the diverse cast of names and experiences they are able to feature each year, with new authors and artists eagerly reaching out to be included. This year, the spread was impressively larger than ever — with a cookbook author, a graphic novelist, countless talented poets, award-winning novelists, and even an astronaut on the billet, the Festival of Words truly spoke to every kind of interest. “The fact that we’re being recognized for our (diverse lineup) confirms that we’re doing the right thing,” said Simison. “It’s all about stories, in the end, and so for all of us to hear different stories is really important.” Although the weekend may be over, the Festival isn’t finished celebrating literature. The ongoing book club with the Moose Jaw Public Library, the Performer’s Cafe Open Mic Nights, the Cineview series, the Writers in Schools program and so many other fantastic events through the year — they keep the Canadian literature spark twinkling here in Moose Jaw.

Belcourt paints image of personal identity with his poetry Larissa Kurz

During his panel with Alasdair Rees, another youth poet making waves, Billy-Ray Belcourt shared a selection of work from his two published collections, both of which explore identity in a very personal way. Belcourt is the youngest winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize, and has written two books of haunting poetry that explore the fears and pleasure of identity, love, and queer sexuality. He hails from the Driftpile Cree Nation, in Northern Alberta, and is a previous Rhodes Scholar working on his doctorate at the University of Alberta.

His work addresses the decolonial existence, exploring identity, love, queer sexuality, and Indigenous experience. His debut work, This Wound is a World was listed on the CBC’s top ten poetry collections of 2017. Belcourt read from his collections, including NDN Coping Mechanisms, which attempt to “account for one’s suffering as it was unfolding,” and to return to those moments after some distance. He also read an excerpt from a fiction work he is partway through, a collection of conversations with members of a rural community to explore their experience. Billy-Ray Belcourt shared a section of the fiction he is currently working on during his panel.

Astronaut Dave Williams talks going out of bounds, living in the moment Larissa Kurz

In her interview with astronaut Dave Williams for the Festival of Words, Maryse Carmichael read an excerpt from Williams’ book Defying Limits: Lessons From the Edge of the Universe, detailing his desire to go out of the bounds of expectation. It was an apt selection to read; Williams embodies the youthful desire to reach for the stars that, through determination, can blossom into a successful bound-breaking existence in adulthood. Williams is a decorated astronaut, holding the record for the most spacewalks as a Canadian astronaut, as well as a jet pilot and neurology expert. He sat down with Carmichael, who was the first female pilot to fly as a Snowbird and was later promoted to Commander which made her the first female commander of the aerobatics team. Williams began with telling the story of when he first decided he wanted to be a pilot — witnessing the Apollo 11 mission at age 15 — despite the Canadian space program being non-existent at that time. He credited his parents with instilling the sense that opportunity is always available if you pursue it, which led him to the Army Cadets and eventually on to his neurological research. Williams went on to detail the stress that occurs on the human body during a

Maryse Carmichael asked astronaut Dave Williams about his first fascination with going into space.

space trip, admitting that it bears similarities to the condition that aerobatic pilots — such as the Snowbirds and therefore Carmichael herself — undergo during their maneuvers. It’s one of many parts of being an astronaut that is taxing, and Williams is very humble when talking about his numerous accomplishments; he spent a lot of time discussing the importance of teamwork and camaraderie, out there in space. Carmichael asked Williams if he felt as

though he had accomplished his promise to himself to live in the moment. “I think I’m still on the journey,” admitted Williams, before going on to talk about appreciating every moment and overcoming life’s obstacles. For Williams, approaching difficulties in life is simply a chance to strengthen yourself. He doesn’t believe in the pursuit of happiness, per se, and he explained why. “From my perspective, the most important thing in life is the pursuit of mean-

ing,” said Williams. “If we think the pursuit of happiness is our goal, we’re going to be disappointed because I can guarantee you’re not going to be happy your whole life.” “Through adversity, we learn about ourselves and what we’re capable of dealing with, and we acquire greater meaning in our lives by living through adverse circumstances,” he added. “I learned much more from failure than from success.” Williams, while discussing his time on the International Space Station and the spacewalks he participated in, shared one tidbit of life advice that he felt was appropriate both in the vacuum of space and here on Earth. “One of the things that’s a great opportunity for all of us to learn is MacGyver-ism,” said Williams, admitting that astronauts use the same last-minute problem-solving solutions that everyone else does. He topped his advice off with an anecdote about a crew on a spacewalk to repair the Hubble telescope who had to break the handrail off the door because the bolt was stuck, in order to finish their mission. Williams left the crowd with, hopefully, a new perspective on their own capabilities — and some new insight into the headspace of an astronaut.

Slam poet champion Rees demonstrates power of spoken word Larissa Kurz

The Hyland Memorial Session at the Festival of Words — moderated by local poetry magnate Robert Currie — featured poets Billy Ray-Belcourt and Alasdair Rees, representing the youth and future of poetic perspectives. Rees is currently the youth poet laureate of Saskatchewan, with the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild, which is the first program of its kind in the country. Rees describes the happenstance of the position’s inaugural appointment as perfectly timed with his personal journey as a poet. As he is bilingual, Rees writes his poetry in

both French and English and admits that the language changes the way his poetry sounds — his French sees more academic language, whereas his English work is more conversational. During the session, Rees read excerpts of his spoken-word poetry, much of which involves the existence in a modern society of technology in which the written word transcends. The last work Rees shared was a poem from a new series he is working on, inspired by the rise and fall of YouTube genres, which he described as “blooming and dying like

wildflowers, so in writing these poems I’m trying to grasp them a little bit, while they still exist.” This poem, inspired by ASMR videos, featured Rees skillfully recreating the raspy tone and rounded syllabic rhythm of the genre. The panel featured both artists with a firm grasp on the present, and the ever-shifting concepts on identity in society and technology — complementing each other a representing the modern perspectives who are engaging in the poetic community.

Performance piece from Lorna Crozier weaves poetry into music Larissa Kurz

L-R: Megan Latham, Heather Pawsey, Leslie Uyeda, Lorna Crozier.

With a lingering yet abrupt beginning, A Dialogue Between Mother & Daughter made its international debut at the Festival of Words. A completely original collaboration between Lorna Crozier and Leslie Uyeda, the performance piece told the haunting tale of a mother and daughter reaching out for one another through years of memories and disconnect. Uyeda’s music punctuated Crozier’s words, at first read by the disembodied voice of the mother high up in the audience, until she is drawn up to the stage to join the daughter’s lilting voice.

ery person’s relationship with their mother, in small ways. “Everybody has a mother and we all have issues with our mother. I wanted to present a piece that was complex in showing the relationship between a mother and her daughter, and that there was a lot of love there but there were things that also went wrong,” said Crozier. “All the images are prairie images — the dust, the wind, the birdlife, and the plants and gardens that are indicative of this place. I also wanted it to be about place, because although I’ve lived away from Saskatchewan since 1991, it’s what’s formed my blood and bones and is a ma-

The voices of both Heather Pawsey, soprano, and Megan Latham, mezzo-soprano, lent a robustness to the emotion wrapped around Crozier’s words, creating tension alongside the tumultuous conversation between the mother and the daughter. The rise and fall of the story clings, beginning sweet and reminiscent before darkening into blame, and finally turning into a feeling of peace. That moment of clarity is combined with an ominous dip in Uyeda’s accompaniment, delving deeper into the low range of the grand piano’s clear tones. It’s a beautiful piece, one that Crozier wrote with the intention of touching ev-

jor part of the words I want to speak,” said Crozier. Crozier would love to see the performance on more stages, and is pleased to be a part of a fantastic collaboration of talented artists. “It’s a real treat, as an artist, to be able to collaborate with a different kind of artist,” said Crozier. “When Leslie asked me to write something specifically for her, I knew she was going to do something marvelous with it.” Crozier has been attending the Festival for as many years as it has been held, and is glad to see its continuing legacy.

Festival panel offers a unique look at history Award-winning authors Calder, Hanley offer readings from recent works Randy Palmer

Robert Calder reads from his novel A Hero for the Americas: The Legend of Gonzalo Guerrero during he and Paul Hanley’s panel Friday afternoon.

Patrons to the Saskatchewan Festival of Words on Friday afternoon had an opportunity to learn about a unique bit of history from authors Robert Calder and Paul Hanley. Calder’s non-fiction novel A Hero for the Americas: The

Legend of Gonzalo Guerrero is a tale of the first contact between Spanish explorers and the Mayan natives, resulting in Guerrero becoming a hero to the Mayan people for his time with the tribes in the area and subsequent fight against the conquistadors in the battle for the Yucatan peninsula. Calder spent 15 years researching Guerrero and his time with the Maya, with his investigation aiming to uncover the myths and legends surrounding one of the new world’s ancient heroes. The book has caught notice, earning Calder – who won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Non-Fiction in 1989 for Willie: The Life of W. Somerset Maugham – a host of Saskatchewan Book Award honours. The novel won the City of Saskatoon and Public Library Saskatoon Book Award in addition to being shortlisted for the University of Saskatchewan Non-Fiction Award and the Regina Public Library Book of the Year Award. Hanley’s book Man of the Trees: Richard St. Barbe Baker, the First Global Conservationist tells the story of Baker and the environmentalism that led him to saving and planting billions of trees. Baker’s efforts to raise the alarm about deforestation and find ways to create a more peaceful and greener work attracted plenty of attention over the years, with Hanley’s book including a

foreword by Prince Charles and an introduction by Jane Goodall as a testament to his pioneering work. Like A Hero, Hanley’s novel drew plenty of attention provincially, having been shortlisted for the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport Publishing Award, the University of Saskatchewan Non-Fiction Award and the Public Library Saskatoon Book Award.

Trivia Night tests festival-goers on all things literary Popular event packs Bobby’s Place on Friday night of Festival of Words Randy Palmer

Former Moose Jaw mayor and long-time MLA Glenn Hagel auctions off a group of authors including Ted Barris, Drew Hayden Taylor and Billy-Ray Belcourt.

There were some easy questions, some thought-provokers and some true hum-dingers in the mix, but one thing rang true throughout the Saskatchewan Festival of Words Trivia Night: you had to have literal book-smarts if you were going to have a chance to win. Close to 100 participants packed Bobby’s Place on Friday night for the annual event, one of the centrepieces of the second night of the Festival of Words.

Martin… note, that order is the correct

answer). Teams had some help along the way, as a host of the Festival’s presenting authors were on hand and were auctioned off prior to the event, bringing in a total of $2,520 for the night with all proceeds going back to the Festival. In the end, the veteran team the Book Bags took first place with 43 points, including a perfect score through the first two rounds. Word Crimes finished second with 42 points.

Breakfast panels close out Saskatchewan Festival of Words Final event sees panels on Selling Your Story and Organizing Your Words Randy Palmer

Matt Froese provided music for the event.

The final event of the Saskatchewan Festival of Words offered participants a chance to learn a few of the intricacies of writing and getting your story to the masses during the annual breakfast panels at Mosaic Place on Sunday morning. Leading things off was the Selling Your Story panel, which featured the group of Tanis MacDonald (Out of Line), Eden Robinson (Trickster Drift), Gail Bowen (A Darkness of the Heart) and Drew Hayden Taylor (Sir John A: Acts of a Gentrified Ojibway Rebellion) offering tips, tricks and stories on how to sell your

book to publishers and finding your audience in a crowded market. That includes knowing who to sell your book to, with MacDonald pointing to the idea of promoting a book to people who it’s written about – in her case smaller-town folks as opposed to city dwellers. Getting word out about your novel can also involve a lot of travelling, as Robinson did through communities in northern B.C. for her first book Monkey Beach.

Festival of Words authors Tanis MacDonald, Eden Robinson, moderator Jael Robinson, Gail Bowen and Drew Hayden Taylor offer tips on how to sell your story during Sunday’s first breakfast panel.

Bowen pointed out that far too much emphasis is being placed on marketing by publishers, cutting out interesting manuscripts just because they might be difficult to sell. Taylor offered a humorous take in that regard, where he was told his first novel had too much of one thing – in this case, his Native vampire protagonist fighting sentient racoons – and another wanted more of the same. The second panel, Organizing Your Words, featured the trio of Sarah Selecky (Radiant Shimmering Light), Danny Ramadan (The Clothesline Swing) and

Gwen Benaway (Holy Wing). Of note, Ramadan says that you have to sit down and create an outline and know your characters before you even set out to write your story. Both he and Selecky added that they make a point of sitting down and writing 1,000 words a day. The panelists also discussed the challenges they face when writing. Both panels were moderated by Jael Richardson, who worked with many authors in one-on-one interviews through the weekend. The breakfast was sponsored by the Moose Jaw Express.

Blanket Exercise a firsthand sampling of First Nations experience with European settlement

Tale told through variety of imagery show sometimes ugly side of Indigenous lives changed and lost over the years Randy Palmer

Turtle Island was once a massive expanse of land that held all the wealth any country or people would need to live long and prosperous lives. It’s also a landmass we’re very familiar with today – Turtle Island is the traditional Indigenous name for the North American continent. That was the beginning premise of the Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association’s Blanket Exercise, which took place on Saturday afternoon during the

Festival of Words in front of the Moose Jaw Public Library. Hosted by WACA chair and Festival board member Lori Deets, the exercise told the tale of European landing and takeover of North America and the often ugly repercussions it had for Indigenous peoples. That was represented by blankets – dozens of which were originally laid out in the shape of a turtle – gradually being taken away, folded and outright disap-

Turtle Island, as North American was known before European settlement, was in its full glory at the start of the Blanket Exercise.

AT THE

E FOOD STOR

NEXT SCRATCH & SAVE DAY

As time went on, Turtle Island became smaller and smaller as First Nations groups were moved, taken and died as European pioneers become more and more prevalent in North America – as symbolized by the once expansive field of blankets being reduced to tiny squares that could only fit a single person.

pearing as the event went on. The representation was stark: each disappearing blanket meant land lost, culture lost, a people dying of disease or simply ceasing to exist. Eventually, participants found themselves standing on tiny folded squares as more and more blankets were removed and people around them disappeared. Eventually, those tiny squares were allowed to become slightly larger, with just a corner folded out, as efforts began to apologize for the past and reconciliation began. The exercise concluded with a debriefing in the park, as Deets answered questions about the meaning of the event and how efficiently it shows the sense of loss when it comes to First Nations in North America.

IS TUESDAY, AUGUST 6

As Blanket Exercise participants stood on their ever-smaller blankets representing their lost lands and culture, the apologies eventually came, representing in part the current reconciliation efforts.

City Hall Council Notes Industrial park to receive upgrades despite absence of anchor tenant Jason G. Antonio

More than $1.2 million will be spent to install water and sewer services to the South East Industrial Area (SEIA), even though an anchor tenant has not been fully confirmed yet. During its July 22 regular meeting, city council voted 5-1 to have the engineering department proceed with finding a qualified contractor to perform the work for $1,213,951. This construction will focus on phase 1A in the 755-acre industrial area and will use funding from the provincial/federal Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF), which requires the project to be completed by March 31, 2020. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Coun. Chris Warren was absent. Background Canadian Protein Innovation Inc. was supposed to be the original anchor tenant, but that company defaulted on its purchase agreement, explained Jim Dixon, Moose Jaw’s economic development manager. The project’s design was shifted to service phase 1A, which would partially service SaskPower’s combined cycle gas power plant.

“SaskPower is now being deemed as the anchor tenant for the South East Industrial Park,” Dixon said. Servicing and design of the SEIA was carried forward from 2016, while city council reduced the project’s cost this year to $1,478,657, he continued. This amount includes the CWWF funding of $1,155,825, plus the city’s portion of $322,832. With $297,900 going to Associated Engineering, this left $1,213,951 to service phase 1A. City council approved agreements for the sale and servicing of the remainder of the municipal-owned land to Carpere Canada on July 8. Council discussion Swanson disagreed with spending money on the industrial park, saying it makes no sense since there is no anchor tenant yet. He also thought Carpere — a private developer — was supposed to cover all the costs of installing infrastructure in that area. This funding came from a grant application the municipality applied for a few years ago, said Dixon. City administration

does not want to risk losing it. To have more than $1 million available and not spend it would be questionable, echoed city manager Jim Puffalt. Even if every tenant falls through at the industrial park, at least the municipality will have serviced land. It would send a poor message if the municipality didn’t spend provincial money to help service a gas power generation station, he continued. SaskPower doesn’t have many options for generating baseload power. Coal is being phased out, while renewable resources are not reliable enough to generate continual power. “Administration has worked pedal to the metal on this,” Puffalt added. “Federal funding is hard to come by. We have found a way to spend this money.” This money can’t be used for anything else but water and wastewater projects, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. The window to spend this money is closing soon, so it has been assigned to the industrial park. The land should have been serviced, prepared and sold already, but Canadian Protein Innovation’s default made the situa-

tion convoluted, he continued. However, the municipality has made great progress in this area, while it has built a solid relationship with SaskPower. “As we said before, we going to continue to fight for this project. But throwing the baby out with bathwater and throwing $1 million away is not my idea of helping economic growth within our community. We need to get on this,” he added. It would be short-sighted to shut down the project and give up more than $1 million in funding simply because the project might fall apart, said Coun. Heather Eby. She thought it was time to begin working in that area since construction season is short. “This takes us one step closer to being ready for a tenant and I’m praying that tenant will be SaskPower,” she added. “Hope and prayer does not meet the bar for public accountability,” Swanson shot back. “We talk about short-sighted, time will tell the tale on this one.” The next regular council meeting is Aug. 12.

Upgrading airport not the most important priority, says councillor Jason G. Antonio

Giving retroactive approval to a grant application for federal funding to improve the airport does not sit well with some city councillors, who say there are more important priorities to handle. The Moose Jaw Municipal Airport Authority (MJMAA) submitted an application to the federal government in June under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). The MJMAA wants to extend the runway 300 metres (1,000 feet), strengthen the taxiway and apron, upgrade the lighting on the runway and taxiway, and certify the approach path. This is expected to cost $3 million. The airport was constructed in 197778, but advancements in aviation mean it needs to be upgraded to meet today’s standards, the airport authority’s application says. The City of Moose Jaw provided a grant of $500,000 in 2017 to the MJMAA, while the business community kicked in another $500,000. The Rural Municipality of Moose Jaw has also promised $300,000 over 10 years and the provincial government has committed $1 million over four years. With the initial $1 million from the municipality and business community, the airport authority then pursued matching grant funding from the province and federal government. The provincial Ministry of Municipal Infrastructure and Finance advised the MJMAA and city hall on June 13 that the deadline for applications was June 20, according to a report presented at city

council on July 22. Due to the tight timelines, the application was processed and submitted before city council could give approval. During city council’s July 22 regular meeting, council voted 4-2 to approve the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program grant application. Councillors Brian Swanson and Dawn Luhning were opposed. Coun. Chris Warren was absent. It’s poor planning to submit an application to fix the airport when city hall has already sent in grant applications to fix basic infrastructure, the swimming pool, and to service the South East Industrial Park, said Swanson. The ICIP application says the airport authority has also secured a private loan of $2 million, which concerned Swanson. He wanted to know more about that loan. “We will follow up on that. They did the application. They would have a better idea of what that means,” said Jim Dixon, economic development officer for Moose Jaw. Mayor Fraser Tolmie later told the Moose Jaw Express that this is not a loan, but simply the funding the MJMAA has already acquired. The municipality provided a loan to the airport authority, while it also provided regular yearly funding of $30,000, Swanson said. That was increased this year to $150,000, with the goal of helping the MJMAA pay back the $500,000 loan. “I don’t think taxpayers see that as their responsibility … ,” Swanson remarked. “This (application) shows that the wants of a very small select few usurp the com-

munity needs of Moose Jaw with respect to provincial and federal funding.” City hall has been in contact with the provincial government about its top priorities, said Tolmie. Upgrading the water reservoirs is the top priority, followed by fixing the pool in Crescent Park. However, he continued, the municipality is competing — unknowingly at times — for provincial and federal dollars with community groups such as the Western Development Museum and the Wakamow Valley. There are also other communities pursuing similar funding. “If citizens want something, they have to

pay for it,” Tolmie added. Those groups don’t have to go through city council to have their applications approved, Swanson replied. As elected officials, they have to act in the best interest of the community and focus on the most urgent needs. Moose Jaw has been fortunate to receive several provincial and federal grants to help improve water infrastructure, noted city manager Jim Puffalt. This includes money from transit grants and the federal Gas Tax Fund. The next regular council meeting is Aug. 12.

City Hall Council Notes

Councillor frustrated by lack of answers from city administration City administration’s inability to give responses to questions that had been asked weeks ago frustrated Coun. Brian Swanson, who expressed his disappointment over the slowness in receiving responses to his “critical questions.” During the final few minutes of council’s July 22 regular meeting, Swanson inquired about queries he had made during previous meetings, particularly around paving, the cast iron water main replacement and summaries of contractual agreements. Swanson pointed out he had previously asked

Jason G. Antonio

about a repaving project on the 1100 block of Fourth Avenue Northeast and why the street had not been widened in the process. After looking through his notes and at other department managers for assistance, Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering, replied, “We will follow up and respond.” Swanson continued by saying during a previous meeting, he had asked why there was a discrepancy in how many cast iron water main pipes would be replaced this year and what had already been replaced. He had pointed out that 3,200 metres of pipes were

scheduled to be replaced this year, but only 2,200 metres had actually been switched out. “Yeah, again, apologies for the delay on that. We’ll be getting a response and send it out,” said Mickleborough. During a personnel committee meeting six weeks ago, Swanson said he had indicated there has been a long-standing practice to provide a synopsis of contractual agreements. He noted council had received a synopsis of the police contract agreements but none from the fire department. “All my three previous questions speak to

critical issues with respect to the city that have previously been brought forward,” he added. “I’m left wondering, why does it take so long to get followup answers to critical questions?” Those synopses are not provided until agreements are signed, explained city clerk Myron Gulka-Tiechko. The fire department’s contractual agreement was signed only recently. That synopsis is expected to be presented to council in the coming weeks. The next regular council meeting is Monday, Aug. 12.

Report shows which city employees and contractors received the most money in 2018 Jason G. Antonio

The highest-paid municipal employee last year was city clerk/solicitor Myron Gulka-Tiechko, at $162,640.99, while contractor Hamm Construction Ltd. received the most project funding, at $16,084,846.65, according to the 2018 municipal public accounts. The report was presented to city council during its July 22 regular meeting. Council voted 6-0 to receive and file the report. Coun. Chris Warren was absent. The point of the public accounts report is to show how much remuneration each employee and council member was paid; how much remuneration each employee and any member of a committee or council-established body received; and how much money council provided to any group that receives most of its funding from the municipality. The report also looked at the remuneration each employee and board member of a controlled corporation received; expenditures for travel and other expenses incurred by employees, council members and board members; contract expenditures; and grants and contributions of goods and services. Coun. Brian Swanson urged all residents to read the public accounts report on the municipality’s website and “see the factual information presented,” pointing out the report shows to whom the City of Moose Jaw issued cheques worth more than $50,000 and shows all employee salaries over $50,000. Although Swanson thought the report raised many questions, he zeroed in on expenditures issued to contractors, particularly to the Toronto law firm Hicks Morley Hamilton Stewart. In 2018 the City of Moose Jaw paid the law firm $105,815.01, which Swanson noted provided advice around negotiations and structural changes to the fire department. This advice, however, generated applications to the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board (SLRB).

It is correct that there was one outstanding application sent to the SLRB that was more than a year old, acknowledged city manager Jim Puffalt in response to a question from Swanson, while it is also correct that the municipality is waiting for a judgment on that application. City administration is unable to say how many applications have been sent to the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board over the years, added Gulka-Tiechko, since there are several that go back many years. City administration would have to follow up on that topic. “I am more concerned about the ones for when we obtained that legal council. I think it is two previous ones,” said Swanson, adding, “Can we see if the city was found in violation? Please.” Council pay The remuneration and expenses paid to council members last year included: · Coun. Heather Eby: $4,401.36/$420 · Coun. Crystal Froese: $23,194.88/$1,631.65 · Coun. Dawn Luhning: $23,151.28/$25 · Coun. Scott McMann: $23,772.50/$1,794 · Coun. Don Mitchell: $11,752.80/$60 · Coun. Brian Swanson: $23,272.93/$0 · Coun. Chris Warren: $24,619.74/$2,455.05 · Mayor Fraser Tolmie: $70,199.93/$5,247.13 Total remuneration paid out was $204,365.47 and total expenses paid back were $11,632.83. Highest paid employees Many of Moose Jaw’s police officers and firefighters were some of the highest-paid municipal employees last year, along with several department heads at city hall. According to the report, the highest paid municipal employees for 2018 were: · Myron Gulka-Tiechko, city clerk/solicitor ($162,640.99)

· Police Chief Rick Bourassa ($159,954.47) · Joshua Mickleborough, director of engineering services ($147,145.76) · Brian Acker, director of financial services ($146,886.79) · Deputy Police Chief Rick Johns ($146,237.84) · Albert Bromley, director of Human Resource Services ($142,265.70) · Fire Chief Rodney Montgomery ($137,902.66) · Police Insp. Richard McKenna ($136,964.37) · Police Insp. Brent Mackey ($136,956.53) · Police Insp. Devon Oleniuk ($135,525.45) · Michelle Sanson, director of planning and business development ($134,778.88) Contractor expenses Some of the highest contractual expenditures went to: · Hamm Construction ($16,084,846.65) · KMS Construction Ltd. ($7,567,536.67) · SaskPower ($3,625,380.01) · Cypress Paving Ltd. ($3,595,935.49) · Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Corporation ($2,987,522.03) · Grande West Transportation International ($1,831,730.70) · PCL Construction Management Inc. ($1,781,686.94) · Henderson Insurance ($1,492,288.42) · Palliser Regional Library ($1,110,430.25) · Associated Engineering Ltd. ($1,040,730.56) · SGI Auto Fund ($1,002,132.76) · Moose Jaw Warriors ($999,136.04) The municipality issued $63,571,036.04 in total contractual expenses last year. The next regular council meeting is Aug. 12.

Provincial Court

Charges against accused tobacco smugglers pushed into August Jason G. Antonio

Five people accused of smuggling tobacco and loose cigarettes had their charges adjourned again for almost a month, which a judge hopes will provide enough time for the creation of a resolution. Eugene Rivard, 74, Elizabeth Rivard, 69, Paula Rivard, 48, Douglas Ahenakew, 54, and Samuel Peter Crook, 58, are all accused of transporting 618,000 illegal cigarettes and about 31 kilograms (68 pounds)

of loose tobacco worth $115,000, after officers with the Moose Jaw Police Service conducted a traffic stop and executed a search warrant on March 19. Their defence lawyer, Matthew Schmeling, appeared by phone in Moose Jaw provincial court on July 22. He explained there was still more disclosure — or information — about the case he needed from the Crown.

Judge Daryl Rayner agreed to hold all bench warrants originally issued for the five people. He also agreed to adjourn the matters until Tuesday, Aug. 13, but pointed out Schmeling would have to physically appear in court that day if he planned to enter pleas on behalf of his clients. “Hopefully something can happen on that day to move this forward,” Rayner added. In a previ-

ous news release, the Moose Jaw Police Service pointed out it is illegal to possess or use unstamped tobacco. The illegal tobacco trade is unregulated and supports organized crime. This tobacco also gives people – especially young people – easier access to cigarettes. It also takes away millions of tax dollars from public services such as education and health care.

Hillcrest sports camps bursting at the seams Larissa Kurz

It’s too late to jump into a week of the football, baseball, or basketball sessions, but the Hillcrest Mega Sports Camps might still have room for kids interested in soccer or cheerleading. The annual camp is nearly at capacity, but Laura Fehr, Hillcrest Church’s administrative assistant, says they aren’t discouraging kids from registering anyway. “We are trying to expand our camp but it’s just a matter of finding enough volunteers to allow more kids in,” said Fehr. “We’re kind of putting kids on a waitlist, at this point. We’re saying still register, but there may be a chance you don’t get in if we can’t find enough volunteers.” It’s possible they can squeeze more kids into the soccer or cheer camps, as the equipment requirements are less taxing than those of flag football, baseball, or soccer. Running from Aug. 12-16, the camp for kids aged 6 12 will begin at 9 a.m. and run until 12 p.m., with all groups meeting at Hillcrest Church. Camp attendees will learn new skills in their sport each day and then show off what they’ve learned with friendly scrimmages. “In between their sports times, we bring all the kids together to teach them about teamwork skills and teach them about Jesus, their faith,” said Fehr.

early this year, leaving them to try and find more volunteers to help keep things running smoothly. “This has been surprising, and it’s a good surprise for us. We’re loving it but we’re going to make some changes in the upcoming years, if this camp going to keep growing,” said Fehr. Registration for the camps can be done online at Hillcrest Church’s website, or by stopping in at their administrative office at 1550 Main Street North. For more information, check www.hillcrestmj.com, call 1 (306) 692-5600, or email the camp coordinator at summerstudent@hillcrestmj.com. The Hillcrest Mega Sports Camp runs sessions of flag football, baseball, basketball, soccer, and cheerleading for kids from all over the city.

Hillcrest Church has borrowed equipment for the sessions but welcomes kids to bring their own if they would like — along with the usual necessities, like appropriate footwear, sunscreen, and water.

Ingalls returning to Team Canada for indoor world lacrosse championship Moose Jaw lacrosse product looking to win second gold medal in as many years Randy Palmer

Quinn Ingalls might have experienced the heartbreak of his junior lacrosse team losing out in the playoffs, but the consolation prize he received was sweet. The 19-year-old Moose Jaw Lacrosse Association product was one of the eight players named to Team Canada on July 22 for the upcoming International Indoor Junior Lacrosse world championships from Aug. 6-11 in Mississauga, Ont. Ingalls had earlier been selected for the 40-player selection roster after putting together a solid performance at the Saskatchewan regional combine in January. He went on to have an impressive season with the Saskatchewan SWAT in the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League Junior ‘A’ division, finishing fifth in team scoring with 12 goals and 25 points in 14 games as the SWAT posted an 8-7 record to fin-

ish tied for second place. Things didn’t go as well in the playoffs, though, as they lost in three games to the Calgary-Okotoks Raiders, including a 7-6 loss in the deciding game Friday July 19 in Saskatoon. Given how selection to the final 23-player roster was based on how deep their respective club teams went in the playoffs in addition to their combine and regular season performance, it wasn’t long before Team Canada came calling for Ingalls and teammates goaltender Laine Hruska (7.30 GAA, 81.4 save percentage), defenceman Wyatt Haux (7-4-11) and defenceman Garrett Depape (2-2-4). The selection will mark Ingalls’ second appearance with Team Canada after winning gold last year.

Bantam Ice finish fourth at provincials Miller Express drop pair in weekend action

Young team posts impressive showing in ‘A’ championships

Moose Jaw falls 7-6 to Swift Current Saturday, 11-2 to Weyburn Sunday

The Moose Jaw Ice put together a fourth-place showing at the Softball Sask. Bantam ‘A’ provincials this past weekend. The Moose Jaw Ice did not come away with a provincial title at the Softball Sask. Bantam ‘A’ championship in Prince Albert this past weekend but they opened the event with a pair of wins, defeating Twin Cities 10-0 and the Regina Saints 6-5 in an extra inning before falling 6-5 to the Saskatoon Hustlers and dropping an 8-0 decision to the eventual champion Saskatoon Phantoms. That created a mustwin game against the South East Hawks, where the Ice battled to a 7-5 victory to earn a spot in the final four playoff round. There, they found themselves in a close game with the Regina Royals, with the

two teams tied 2-2 after three innings. The Royals would go ahead 6-3 in the third and eventually take a 7-4 victory to eliminate the Ice, but it was as close as could be in the final couple innings. Making things all the more impressive is the Ice found that success despite taking the field with 10 of their 13 players as first-year Bantams – the majority of which finished second at the Pee Wee championships last season. The kind of heart and desire the Ice has is something that has them looking forward to big things next season as a veteran second-year team.

Michael Borst delivers a pitch against the Swift Current 57s earlier in the week. The up-and-down run that has been the Moose Jaw Miller Express season continued this past weekend in Western Canadian Baseball League action. After putting together a pair of wins against two of the division’s top teams to start the week, the Express have now dropped their last three games, falling 7-6 to the 57s on July 27 and 11-2 to the Weyburn Beavers in their most recent contest July 28. Moose Jaw now sits with a 23-24 record with nine games remaining in the regular season, but have all but clinched the final playoff spot in the Eastern Division as they hold a 7 ½ game lead in fourth place over the Melville Millionaires. Swift Current 7, Express 6 Isiah Campa knocked home Vinny Margiotta with the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth to give the 57s the walk-off win. Jeff Nicolosi got the start for Moose Jaw and was hit hard by a pair of errors, including a second-inning miscue that eventually saw four unearned runs score, the majority coming off a three-run home run from John Sechen. Swift Current extended that lead with 6-0 before the Express rebounded in style, sending 10 batters to the plate and scoring six runs in the seventh inning. Cole Warken brought a pair of those runs home with a two-run single before himself scoring on a bases-loaded balk from the 57s’ Aaron Pugh. Alex Orenczuk made Pugh pay further when two pitches later his single to right field brought home the fifth and sixth Moose Jaw runs.

Ty Lightley was the only Express hitter with multiple knocks, going 2-for-4 with a run scored. Weyburn 11, Express 2 Little went right for Moose Jaw in their visit with the Beavers, as Weyburn built a 4-0 lead through three innings, 6-1 through five and blew things open with a five-spot in the sixth to go ahead 11-1. Ethan Soroka surrendered six runs on five hits while walking six in five innings of work to take the loss. Dougie DelaCruz finished the game 2-for-3 at the plate, while Lightley was 1-for-3 with an RBI and Geordie McDougall 1-for-3 with a run scored.

New Zealand exhibition games a great experience for teams

Moose Jaw Pee Wee Ice take pair of wins in doubleheader against ISA Under-14 team Randy Palmer

Some of the sights from the exhibition games between the Moose Jaw Pee Wee Ice and the New Zealand ISA Under 14s. All it took was the first chant from the New Zealand ISA Under-14 girls to know their exhibition game with the Moose Jaw Pee Wee Ice wasn’t your standard affair. I mean, just how often is it you actually hear Maori songs coming from the opposing dugout at Optimist Park? “That was just awesome,” Ice catcher Makenna Simmons said shortly after the first contest of the doubleheader Saturday. “I just love their accents and their cheers, they’re such a fun team to play.” That kind of experience was the whole idea for the two games as the barnstorming Kiwis made the trip down from Melfort to face the Ice in the rarest of international match-ups between two under-14 teams in the province. And while the scores might not have been close – Moose Jaw took 15-0 and 14-2 wins in cool, rainy, blustery, sunny and warm conditions throughout the day –

the chance to simply play the games was a bonus in itself as well as a learning experience for both squads. The visit came out of what has become an annual tradition for ISA visiting Canada with a train of barnstorming teams. The program has been in existence back in New Zealand for the last 13 years, and it was in year two that Softball Canada first came calling, inviting the Kiwis to an under-19 men’s tournament in Prince Edward Island. “And as we developed and expanded our program to more age groups, Saskatoon Softball was kind enough to invite us here and that’s how it’s sort of developed,” ISA manager Craig Waterhouse explained. “We have a team in Europe next month, we had an under-19 team here three weeks ago, a under-14 boys team here last week… it’s all about giving the players new experiences and more chanc-

es for expanded coaching. But sometimes you find out there’s a bit of a gap between where you are and teams like we played today and we’ll work to try and close that gap in the future.” The New Zealanders have toured all over Saskatchewan, including a two-game stop in Saskatoon, along a contest in Shellbrook and the aforementioned game in Melfort. ISA also spent a night in Prince Albert but didn’t take the field against their powerhouse programs. “It’s been fantastic,” Waterhouse said. “Everyone has been welcoming, so it’s been a good trip.” The culture aspect is a big part of the whole thing – ISA visited a First Nations park outside of Saskatoon during their stay there, while their U14 boys team had a chance to take in a powwow during their visit to Saskatchewan earlier this year. Whether or not ISA will return next year

is up in the air, but Newberry was impressed with how things came together in such short order when it came to hosting the games. “It was great that (assistant coach) Paul (Litzenberger) was able to organize this, so kudos to him and kudos to all our parents for helping make this happen,” he said. “They did a lot of work to make sure this turned out as well as it did, we’re so fortunate to have such a great group of parents who always put in so much volunteer time and work to make things like this come together.” Camryn Rusu was named the Forged Academy Player of the Game for Game 1, Simmons took the honour for Game 2. New Zealand is now off to the United States for a quick one-game stop before heading home next Saturday.

Canucks reach tiebreaker in provincials

Moose Jaw finishes 1-4 as hosts of 18U AA Tier I championships Randy Palmer

Action from the Canucks’ comeback win over the North Battleford Beavers to close out the round robin. ing 19-8 to the Weyburn Beavers in a tiebreaker Sunday morning. The Unity Cardinals would go on to defeat the Blue Jays 9-5 to claim the provincial title.

Canucks 10, Battlefords 9

The Moose Jaw Canucks might not have had a ton of luck as hosts of the Baseball Sask 18-and-under AA Tier I provincial championships, but when things did go right, the result was impressive. The Canucks overcame a 9-2 deficit with a seven-run sixth inning to take a 10-9 victory over the Battlefords Beavers in the second game of their round robin Saturday at Ross Wells Park. Unfortunately for the local squad, that would be the lone highlight as they capped the event with a 12-0 loss to the Saskatoon Blue Jays in their final round robin game before los-

Chase Coward singled to open the seventh inning, moved to third on a base hit by Cam O’Reilly and came around to score the walk-off game-winning run on a long fly ball off the bat of Cole Breitkruez to pick up their lone win of the tournament. The victory capped a stunning comeback that saw the Canucks score seven runs in the sixth inning, sending 11 batters to the plate and taking advantage of a handful of Battlefords miscues to tie the game 9-9. Evan Callaghan led the Moose Jaw offence, going 2-for-4 with a pair of triples, a run scored and two runs batted in. Coward finished the game 2-for-2 with two runs scored while Riley Skarbon also knocked in a pair with his lone hit of the game. O’Reilly, Tyler Lorenz, Sam Caplette and Cole Breitkreuz also had two hits each. Jake Kindiak got the start on the mound

and surrendered seven runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings of work. Jeremy Kohl tossed the final 3 2/3 and held the fort the rest of the way, only allowing two runs on seven hits as the Canucks mounted their comeback.

Saskatoon 12, Canucks 0

The Canucks were unable to keep that momentum going in their final round robin game later that night, as the Blue Jays blew open a 2-0 game with seven runs in the third and three more in the fourth to invoke the mercy rule. Mackenzie Wallace went the distance for Saskatoon, allowing only two hits and striking out five in five innings of work. Nick Daly, Ryley Gross and Quincey Johnson all saw action on the mound for Moose Jaw. Callaghan and Caplette had the only Canucks hits.

Weyburn 19, Canucks 8

There was no shortage of offence in the Sunday morning tiebreaker, with the two teams going back-and-forth at the plate as Weyburn built a 10-5 lead in the first two innings,

The Beavers bats never cooled off, though, and they extended their lead to 13-7 through four innings before tacking on four runs in the fifth and two in the sixth to close out the contest. Moose Jaw had only five hits but took advantage of five Weyburn errors to score their runs. Skarbon and Breitkruez each crossed the plate twice for the Canucks. Weyburn, on the other hand, needed no such help in the field as they racked up 27 hits. Jaxon Chartrand finished 5-for-6 with five runs scored while Nolan Ling went 5-for-6 with six RBI. Callaghan, Lorenz, O’Reilly and Daly all saw action on the mound for Moose Jaw.

Thousands of ladybugs released to hunt down sap-sucking aphids Jason G. Antonio

The aphid population has exploded in Moose Jaw recently due to the hot weather, so the municipality has sent in an army of red and black soldiers to handle the problem. More than 20,000 ladybugs were released throughout the community recently to start munching on the small green sap-sucking pests, explained parks gardener Sarah Regent. The parks department released the majority of the ladybugs in Crescent Park, while it deposited the rest in Palliser Heights, on the east side of the community and throughout South Hill, which is facing a particularly bad aphid problem this year. Aphids are a nuisance since they produce a sticky liquid called honey dew, Regent said. This liquid builds up on the leaves, to the point where it starts falling onto the ground and onto vehicles and becomes an annoyance. In some cases mould can grow on the leaves if it builds up enough. The parks department brought several bags of ladybugs — about 1,000 in each bag — to release in Crescent Park during the kickoff event. The ladybugs were let loose on the trunks of the trees, where they began working to destroy the nuisance insects. Once the ladybugs were finished eating, they then dispersed throughout the area. This outbreak of aphids is the worst in the last five years, Regent said. The aphids themselves don’t necessarily cause problems to the trees; it’s the honey dew sap that is problematic. “It’s quite a nuisance for people living near these trees,� she continued, “and it’s mostly elm trees that are im-

pacted.� Although ladybugs and aphids are small from a human perspective, the red and black beetles “are quite a bit bigger� than aphids. A ladybug is about one centimetre (0.4 inches) in size, or about one-half the length of a regular-size paper clip. An aphid is 0.3 millimetres (0.125 inches) in size, which makes it about one-fifth the size of the beetles — or the size of a pinprick on leaves. Due to this size imbalance, ladybugs are able to eat 50 aphids a day. “This is pretty good considering their size,� said Regent. “This helps knock back the population of aphids.� The ladybugs are expected to continue eating the aphids for at least another month before they begin to die off. However, they will produce larvae, which are also effective aphid hunters. The parks department expects the beetles to continue working until the fall, before they go into hibernation.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith

Youngsters enjoy Family Day events, Sukanen 50th birthday cake By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express

Project Time Something that gets my juices flowing is completing projects around the house or yard. Summer is the perfect time to attack that long list of small repairs or changes that need to be done sooner or later. As I’ve assisted my dad and Hubby in projects over the years, I realized lately that I could probably attempt some fixes by myself without much supervision or help. What got me started was when Hubby was swamped with work and had no energy to continue working on the master ensuite bathroom reno we had begun. I don’t mind being in a renovation mess if the renovation is being worked on but when it comes to a standstill, that is a bit hard to live with day in and day out. Since our project had stalled, I stretched out of my comfort zone and attempted to continue what we had started. I asked Hubby if he would oversee me as I took it step by step and he agreed. I demolished the original powder room and took it upon myself to build a wall with sound barrier, vapor barrier and drywall. It felt so good to be able to attempt and complete that project successfully. Once I had my confidence built, I attempted several other projects including busting out a wall to expand our pantry and am presently building a step/flower bed by our garden shed. It has been such a satisfying feeling to successfully accomplish those projects by myself. When attempting projects around the house, start small and build up. I never imagined I would learn how to run a skill saw and cut lumber until the stalled reno moved me into action. I have used a cordless drill over the years for various projects such as hanging a picture or something of that nature but this year, I moved into screwing studs into the top and bottom plate of the wall I was building as well as when I hung the drywall. I was thankful I had learned to use that tool in earlier years. Make a list of repairs or creative ideas you would like to implement in your home or yard. Once you get started, momentum builds and moves you forward in completing some of those tasks. As you build confidence in your abilities, keep pushing yourself to attempt bigger projects. Recently, I dug out some bricks that had been randomly placed in the lawn by previous land owners (don’t ask me why they were there). Next, I removed some loose rock near our patio door and replaced the rock with the bricks for a safer and more stable entrance. That particular issue has bothered me for three years which, in the end, only took an hour to complete from start to finish and it looks much better, besides. I challenge you to start where you are at. Change that light bulb. Paint that shed. Build that raised garden. Plant that tree. Clean out your storage room or have a garage sale. When in doubt, check with Youtube. You will find all the advice you’ll need from experts (or not so experts) online. Or ask a friend or relative to oversee and teach you as you attempt a new project or skill. At the end of the day, as God did when He created the world, be sure to take a minute to stop and appreciate what you’ve accomplished. Of course, I must be mindful to mention you must “dial before you dig” if you’re attempting a project that is a bit more involved! The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

The sight of hundreds of youngsters running on the streets of Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum and having fun at Family Day brought smiles to volunteers putting on the event. “It sure is nice to see kids smiling like that,” said announcer Keith Jelinski. Questions like “Can I do that Mom?” were common as young people played games, took rides on tractors, fire trucks, a barrel train, were guided on a horse or petted ponies. Sid the Clown had a steady line of young folks eager for him to make them an animal or other object from a balloon. The rope making machine with John Bistritzan and his crew was popular as kids watched the 14 strands of twine formed into a braided rope. “Look at what I got,’’ said a little girl proudly looping the rope around her shoulders. Three-legged races, hula hoop events, colouring, seed planting, bean bag tosses, basketball and a tic-tac-toe game were part of the day. Nine-year-old Alexis Leost of Regina was at the museum with her school class in June and liked it so much she asked her parents to celebrate her birthday here. “I think it’s cool,” she said. Her grandparents from Swift Current and Gravelbourg, and an uncle from Saskatoon joined the family for the celebration at the museum. A number of visitors came from Regina, many of them never having been to the museum before.

“This is a great place,” said a Regina guest. “We’re coming back. When is your next event?” Next event is the Threshing Bee on Sept. 7-8. Former Moose Jaw resident Fred Taylor, now of Regina, hadn’t been to the museum for about 30 years. “I never realized it has grown to this extent,” Taylor commented. “I didn’t know this was here,” said a young Marquis woman, who brought her three youngsters. “I’m bringing my husband next week.” Attendance exceeded expectations with about 1,277 paying the reduced $2 admission. The Moose Jaw trolley ferried visitors back and forth from the tourist information booth with full loads almost every trip. Highway construction delayed plans for a trolley arrival every 40 minutes. “We had lots of positive comments,” said Tourism Moose Jaw director Jackie L’Heureux Mason. The concession ran out of food in mid-afternoon. Late concession goers had to be satisfied with 25 cent ice cream, 25 cent popcorn, 25 cent bread and jam. “Nothing better than fresh bread and jam,’’ said one woman. The museum’s 50th anniversary cake was cut at 2 p.m. Not one piece was left. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Lemonade for everyone at the Summer Games spray park The playground program group at the Summer Games Playground rolled up their sleeves and dove into entrepreneurship with a lemonade stand fundraiser on July 25. Setting up just outside the spray park, the excited group taped their homemade sign up on the building and settled in to wait for some customers. The last lemonade stand they attempted had a few stragglers stop by, so they are really hoping to see some more traffic this go around.

All the money they collected had a very specific purpose: to put towards a pizza party for the group. With about 40 regularly-attending kids in the park program, that’s a lot of pizza. The delicious lemonade was available for $1 until around 3:30pm, when the camp program started cleaning up for the day, and if you missed out, keep an ear out in case they decide to bring it back before the program ends on Aug. 15.

New MJPS officers present diversity of police service Larissa Kurz

Three new constables were sworn into the Moose Jaw Police Service in a ceremony on July 25, filling three current positions on the force. Alanna Coghill, Harmandeep Singh, and Regan Pawliw swore the oath to serve and protect the community to a room full of people, with Judge Brian Hendrickson overseeing the administration of oaths. Both MJPS Chief Rick Bourassa and Mayor Fraser Tolmie expressed their best wishes to the upcoming officers and noted that they all exhibited the qualities that the police force holds in highest regards: integrity, morality, and good character. “You are coming to a very highly effective and professional police force that we’re very proud of,” said Tolmie in his speech. Coghill has worked with the MJPS as a communications officer for about 10 years, and has finally pursued her in-

terest in joining the police force. Singh and Pawliw are just beginning their careers with the MJPS, although all three recruits have held an interest in police work for a long time. Chief Bourassa spoke to the reasons these new officers are a good fit for the MJPS. “Our selection process is very rigorous,” said Bourassa. “What we do look at is who are you as a person, and do you have the personality traits that will make you a good police officer. We look for intelligence, we look for empathy, all those different pieces. And what you see today is three people who rose through that and demonstrated that.” These three also represent a type of diversity that the MJPS is looking to encourage in the police force, to better serve and represent the many facets of the community. “We need to be representative of our community,” said

Since 1972

L-R: Police Chief Rick Bourassa, Alanna Coghill, Regan Pawliw, Harmandeep Singh, Mayor Fraser Tolmie, and Judge Brian Hendrickson. Bourassa. “When we go through our selection process, we always go for character and integrity. . . but another fundamental part of that is people that bring a diverse set of experiences, backgrounds, that can bring a diverse set of perspectives that are a little broader than we would have if we didn’t look for those traits.” The three officers will now report to the Saskatchewan Police College in Regina, where they will live and train for the next six months. Following that, they will join the almost 60 other officers in the MJPS.

You are invited!
