Serious injuries reported from another crash near Carberry

The location of a tragic auto accident near Carberry earlier this summer is once again the scene of a multi-vehicle collision.

RCMP have confirmed that on July 31, at around 4:45 p.m., they responded to an accident at the junction of Highway 1 and Highway 5 in the R.M. of North Cypress-Langford.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found that there were three vehicles involved. The initial investigation suggests that a pickup truck was travelling south on #5 and entered the intersection at the #1 Trans-Canada Highway. At that point, it then collided with an eastbound SUV. The collision between those two vehicles then careened across the highway, and collided with a third vehicle, that was waiting at a stop sign located on #5, south of the Trans-Canada.

The initial RCMP report noted that three people were injured, with two taken to a local hospital while a third is being taken to Winnipeg. The injuries are serious, but no fatalities have been reported, as of Wednesday, Aug. 2.

This latest collision oc-

curred in the exact same location as the June 15 accident, involving a handi-van from Dauphin and a semitruck. Seventeen people perished as a result of that collision and eight others were injured.

“We very much appreciate that this may be extraordinarily upsetting for some people considering the recent mass casualty collision at the same intersection,” said Inspector Lee Fortin of RCMP West District. “This is very early in this investigation and we need to do our work to confirm information and determine what happened. We will provide updates as soon as we are able. We urge anyone who is triggered by this incident to seek appropriate supports.”

A few local arts, culture and sport facilities are sharing in some monetary support from the province. The Manitoba Government announced on Monday, July 31, its latest round of financial backing, through the Arts, Culture and Sport in Community (ACSC) Fund.

The program was established last year, with the intent of dividing up nearly $50 million to large, small and community projects that apply. The applications are reviewed and then the money is distributed on a quarterly period.

In the latest announcement, three Neepawa projects and one from Minnedosa received funding. In the Small Capital project category, which covers the renewal of facilities and spaces needed for arts, culture and sports programming or activities,

The Minnedosa Regional Events Centre Inc., received $40,000. That money will be used to assist with the construction of a Walking Track at the new community arena.

received $25,000 for the creation of more accessible washroom spaces. As well, the Neepawa Theatre Centre Inc., who operate the Roxy Theatre, have been granted $12,373 for carpet replacement.

In the Special Initiatives category, which sees 50 to 100 per cent of eligible costs expected covered, to a

maximum of $300,000, the Neepawa Titans received $6,920.00, to aid in the operation for their annual Prospects’ Camp.

In total, 545 large, small and community projects across Manitoba received some amount of funding this quarter. Since 2022, the ACSC fund has doled out cash to 942 total projects.

Seizure was made in Winnipeg this week of 50 cases of genuine French brandy. It is now stored

in the vaults of the law courts, from whence its disappearance will forever remain a mystery.

W. H. Worrell will start a fishing business in Neepawa next week and will call at all homes for orders. He will carry an assorted stock received daily. This is something of a city-like service and will no doubt meet with a generous patronage.

Paying tribute to Percy Murray and his hardworking Lions Club Playground committee, Lion president Harry Smith officially presented the local children’s playground to Mayor Dr. Paul Cleave at a public function held at the grounds Wednesday evening…

The ceremony started with a motorcade from Riverside Park to the corner of Second and Mill Street.

A well known Neepawa sportsman, Roy Rush, was honoured at the first provincial senior play-off series held in Neepawa’s new baseball stadium by being asked to throw out the first ball to get the big event underway Saturday morning.

Note: Roy Rush had started his baseball career in 1918, the same date the event in 1973 was held. Dubbed a “fireball right-hander”, he was noted for his pitching speed in particular, but his capability to play any position. He was also a former coach of minor league teams and the senior Neepawa Cubs team.

The day of the 1973 event was also said to be the occasion of his 72nd birthday.

It took a while, but I finally get it…

Change speed zones now!

The past two columns have been about highways within towns. The issue I have with Highways, or Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure, is that they have a hugely difficult process for doing something as simple as changing speed zones. The particular question I have is: Why have they not lowered the speed limit east of Neepawa on Hwy. 16 at the eastern boundary of the town limits? The amount of traffic on that piece of road is going to lead to accidents and possibly death that could well be at a reduced risk of happening if the speed limit was lowered. Currently it is 100 km/hr and that is senseless.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure has promised yet another study to see if they will “allow” a speed reduction. In response to one of my earlier columns, a reader emailed me that maybe “some concerned Neepawa citizens could go out and move them at night.” I can just imagine how big a fine that would cause.

It seems that speed limits are not applied fairly or sensibly. Quite correctly, the speed entering Rapid City, from a long way out is 50 km/ hr. But Neepawa is 100.

I asked Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure if the Town of Neepawa was the Traffic Control Authority within the boundaries of the Town of Neepawa. Well, yes and no. Here’s their answer: “Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure (MTI) is the traffic authority for much of the provincial highway network as shown on the attached map.”

When I contacted the government about the map they promised me and didn’t send, they did send it later and I printed it out. Seems that a road is not just a road. They must have complicated categories.

Right in the Centre

Ken Waddell

I am sure you would be interested in knowing that the map shows that just within the Town of Neepawa there are Provincial Trunk Highways

(PTH) Declared, Provincial Roads

(PR) Declared, Provincial Trunk Highways (PTH) Designated, Provincial Roads(PR) Designated and Grant-In-Aid Streets. Here is how the authority is spread out.

MTI responsibilities are shown as Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH)

“Declared” or Provincial Road (PR) “Declared,” and includes Hurrell Road/Rosedale Avenue Access Road at the north edge of the Town of Neepawa (the Town), PTH 5 north and south of PTH 16, and the road segment in question, PTH 16 east of the south junction of PTH 5 (as well as PTH 16 west of the Town Limits).

The Town of Neepawa is the traffic authority and can set speed limits on municipal roads and some PTH and PR roads within their jurisdiction. The Town of Neepawa is the traffic authority on PTHs and PRs that are “Designated”. On these “Designated” roads, the Town of Neepawa has the authority to set the speed limit(s) including on the portion of PTH 16 that is shown as “Designated” on the attached map.

The legal declaration for PTHs and PRs can be found in the regulations under the Transportation Infrastructure Act available online at

That link to the regulations leads one to a 78 page document. Really, 78 pages just to define what a road is basically. Certainly glad that’s all cleared up.

I am certain there are times when a 78 page document, and God only knows how many other pages of rules and regulations along with it, may be necessary. But it’s not as if the Town of Neepawa council (and its citizens) are asking for a four lane overpass or even a set of traffic control lights. All that is being asked is that about four traffic speed limit signs be moved a few hundred yards down the road.

Since this column was first drafted, another accident has happened at the junction of Hwy. 5 and 1 near Carberry. Premier Stefanson said after the earlier multi fatality accident that a study would be done as per policy. What the premier and the minister should have said is that while the study was being done, the speed limits would immediately lowered to 80 km/hr. The same statement should be made for Neepawa. The bureaucrats would likely object but I ask, who is in charge anyway, the bureaucrats or the premier? It’s certainly not the citizens and their safety.

Disclaimer: The views expressed in this column are the writer’s personal views and are not to be taken as being the view of the Banner & Press staff.

Throughout the years I lived in my parent’s home, there were carefully observed customs. One of them was a two-part custom, deep cleaning the house, spring and fall. I’m talking Mennonite clean! The shelves in the cupboards and closets emptied, washed and goods selectively replaced; the bottoms of the chairs and the backs of the dressers scrubbed and dried; windows– inside and out and screens in season; oven and tub cleaned to the nth degree. In fall it included the airing of the hand crafted woollen comforters and feather pillows. In spring it included sprucing up the front steps. It seemed like a big to-do about nothing. For the years I raised families, I followed many of these customs by rout. Then I allowed them to lapse. Really, how dirty can a home with a couple of seniors, and no dogs, get? I have found out, sadly, that the answer is ‘quite’. The spring cleaning frees one to spend all the time one wants out of doors, gardening, playing and sometimes, sitting! There are no niggling thoughts of what should/could be done in the house– other than the never-ending three meals a day and laundry! The fall cleaning makes up for that time away from home maintenance and prepares one to set aside time for crafting, reading and watching television with a clear conscience. It takes several days to satisfactorily achieve a deep clean, but its worth it. It took a while, but I finally get it.

Ed was a stickler for a tidy, and clean, vehicle. That’s not to say that on a perfect harvest day he didn’t get impatient when our son spent considerable time deep cleaning the combine before heading to the field! And if one was planning to attend a family gathering or a church service, the vehicle was as clean as driving on country roads allowed. In the years of raising families, I gave up on a clean car. Kids in the car meant stuff, on the floor, in the pockets, on the back window ledge. Things that kept them quiet, entertained and educated while we travelled. And yes, there were spills and stains. Gordon also appreciates a clean and tidy vehicle. I try to take out whatever I bring in, give the dust on the dash a swipe when I see, head through the car wash regularily and , in general, treat a vehicle with respect. It took a while, but I finally got it.

There are other aspects of daily living where I am recognising that my way may not always be the best way. Filed in my memory bank are examples of better ways. Better ways of dealing with people, better ways of gardening, better ways of performing mundane, repetitious tasks. I smile at this, for I am very familiar with the expression ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.’ Well, hallelujah I am not an old dog! I am still learning new things, about myself, and my world. And I do wonder how much more I can learn… and then I will say again, it took a while, but I finally got it!

A choice we must make

One of my favourite Old Testament characters is a man named Joshua. He succeeded Moses as the leader of ancient Israel after the former’s death.

Moses lead the Israelites to freedom from slavery in Egypt. He led them to Mt. Sinai, where God gave them a code of moral, economic, social and religious laws they were to obey. Moses built a place where the people could come to worship God and offer the required sacrifices to atone for their sins. He also set up a system of civil government to enforce God’s laws and lead the people to the eastern border of the Promised Land.

Just before he died, Moses appointed Joshua as his successor. Under his leadership, the Israelites entered the Promised Land and conquered all of the major cities within their borders. That took almost 40 years.

Joshua’s final act was to divide the land into 12 provinces and assign them to the different families (also known as tribes or clans) as

God directed. Then, having completed all God asked of him, he died at the age of 110.

But before he died, he shared one final message with his people. They had a choice to make; and how they chose would determine their national future.

Joshua was no dummy. Observations made during his 80 years in various leadership roles (40 of them as Moses’ successor) had revealed a serious problem in the nation. Their devotion to God was being slowly eroded. Little by little, they were being lured to turn away from God and worship the deities of the nations among whom they lived. For some, the lure was too strong to resist. They served God; but they also served the gods of their non-Israelite friends

and neighbours. That was not acceptable to God or Joshua.

After identifying the problem, Joshua warned them of the consequences they would face if they continued this practice. And then he issued this challenge. “Make up your mind,” he said. “Choose who you will serve. Choose now; but choose wisely, because you and your descendants will have to live with the consequences of your choice.”

To their credit, the people chose to put away their foreign gods and faithfully follow and worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel). The opening verses of the book of Judges tell us that they served God all the days of Joshua and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua. But after

that, when faced with the same choices their ancestors had faced, they chose differently and they suffered accordingly. To get the full story, I would suggest that you read through the Old Testament book of Judges.

If Joshua could stand among us today, he would call us out for having made gods of ourselves and for thinking that we can go our own way, do our own thing, make our own rules and live by them; and he would warn us of the danger that awaits us if we continue on this path.

Then he would ask us to choose who we will serve. He would give us two options. We could serve the eternal, unchanging God who is revealed in the pages of the Holy Bible; or we can serve one of the many gods we have made. That is a choice that each of us must make. No one can make it for us. But we must choose wisely. We and those who come after us will have to live with the consequences of that choice.

Entitlement and contempt

On July 20th while shopping in Portage la Prairie I noticed employees of the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries had established a picket line. Out of curiosity I took the time to visit both picket lines and discovered that the issue was wages. The picketers explained that their previous four year contract, expiring in March of 2022, involved a two year wage freeze, followed by a 0.75 percent a one percent raise in the last two years of the contract. In effect they had received a 1.75 per cent wage increase over a four year period. Adjusted for inflation the Liquor and Lotteries workers had over the previous five years and four months had earned a 15-18 percent reduction in employment income.

We live in a very exciting time very close to the second coming of Jesus Christ to this world. There is so much chaos, confusion, deception, violence, lies we can see, watch, hear and personally witness nowadays.

And there is so much fear about what is coming next; what is going to happen to this country, world, public health care system, banks, money, environment etc.

There is only one remedy given by Creator God to the fallen human race. Acts

4:12, “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved”. No one and nothing will save you from the coming God’s wrath and judgment. Absolutely no one and absolutely nothing!

This fallen world is not getting better. It is getting worse, less and less secure day by day. Jesus Christ, the only Savior of mankind, predicted the times we are living in now. Luke 21:25-26 says, “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among the nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and expectation of things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of heavens will be shaken”

It is going to happen very soon. Humanity is getting there. If you are not a true believer in Jesus Christ, then you do not have any hope beyond the grave. And you live in fear of losing control over your own life in terms of health and wealth. There is a solution to all kinds of fears. It is the fear of God. If you fear God,

if you fear to commit a sin against Holy and Righteous God who created everything and gave you life, then you will enjoy peace in your heart and mind. When your physical life is over, it is not the end of the story, it is just an open door to eternity. There are two kinds of eternity according to the Bible: Heaven and hell.

Do not waste your time. Do not live for the sake of vanities and empty things that do not nourish your immortal soul. Do not let Satan run your life. Turn to Christ in repentance and ask Him to completely change the course of your life.

If you are already a Christian, you have nothing to fear even if you physically die or lose your health or all your money and assets. Jesus Himself encouraged all generations of Christians with the following words recorded in Luke 21:28, “But when these things begin to take

place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near”

Pack your spiritual suitcases, Christians! The Lord is preparing a heavenly mansion for you. This world is not your home. Jesus is coming soon to take His Bride home.

1Thessalonians 4:16-17, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words”

Come, Lord Jesus!

Premier Stefanson and her cabinet are now reportedly restricting the provinces negotiators to offering Liquor and Lotteries workers a maximum wage increase of two percent a year in a four year contract. If accepted, this offer would result in employees receiving a total pay increase of 9.75 percent over an eight year period. Imposing wage increases below the rate of inflation is a plan to impose creeping poverty upon Liquor and Lotteries workers. The Pallister-Stefanson governments motivation in impoverishing workers may be part of their plan to privatize Manitoba’s Liquor Stores. In comparison, it is note worthy that Premier Stefanson and her Cabinet will receive pay increases of 10.5 percent over a three year term, 3.3 percent, 3.6 percent and 3.6 percent. I do not view this salary increase as being unreasonable. However the optics of Manitoba’s Premier accepting a 10.5 percent salary increase to her $189,000 salary over a three year period while restricting her employees to a 9.75 percent increase over a period of eight years, gives an impression of personal entitlement and contempt for her employees.

In the beginning of summer, it was lovely to have fresh zucchinis to stir fry, put in a casserole or a chocolate zucchini cake. But after several weeks, it has taken over. The jokes about “too much zucchini” are all too real! I am finding out there are so many ways to use up your larger-than-life garden bounty besides leaving them by your neighbor’s front door in the night. Zucchinis are filled with nutrition and low in calories. A whole cup of cooked zucchini has just 17 calories and it’s a great source of vitamin C, significant amounts of vitamins B6 and K, riboflavin, folate and minerals, like potassium. What’s more, zucchini’s fiber helps stabilize blood sugar, preventing blood sugar levels from spiking after meals.

Add shredded zucchini to any meatloaf or meatball recipe, lasagna, casseroles and soups. You can use thinly sliced zucchini instead of lasagna noodles for a low-carb, healthy version of lasagna, with or without meat. Cut zucchini into thin strips, sauté it lightly and top it with pasta sauce and grated cheese. Use them to make latkes or hash browns by mixing shredded zucchini with beaten eggs, flour, and spices, such as Mrs. Dash, cumin, or dill and fry in a frying pan. Sauté in a frying pan with oil, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Once soft, sprinkle with shredded cheese or my favourite, add in stir fry sauce or curry. Stew it, pickle it, relish it, jam it, stuff it or bake it into muffins, pancakes, waffles or breads. The possibilities are endless.

When a client comes in to see me for the first time, I always assess their mental wellness holistically. Human beings have four aspects to themselves, the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual components. Each of these components are as important as the other and when they are all in balance, you feel like your best self.

We have some parts of ourselves that we are better at or more comfortable at attending to. We meet the needs of each part by intentionally doing things that feed our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual selves. Beginning with the mental component of self, this is the thinking and rational part of you which is fed by knowledge. Some folks feed this part of themselves by studying, listening to podcasts or watching documentaries. Even something as simple as being in a job you love is mentally satisfying. Feeding the physical part of ourselves looks like eating well, being physically active, having sex, attending doctor’s appointments and taking medication. The emotional part of self is about the emotional connections you make with yourselves and others. Feeding this aspect of self might look like, having a deep conversation with your partner, connecting with a friend or family member or going to therapy. Finally, the spiritual aspect of self. Being spiritual is not the same as being religious (though religion is a form of spiritual). Being spiritual is about your belief in a higher power, higher purpose, your connection with the land and your connection with your spirit. Feeding this aspect of self could look like, reflecting on your personal beliefs, attending religious services, listening to music (of any kind), going for a walk

Thanks for reading Banner & Press

Ask yourself? How am I meeting my needs according to the four aspects of self? What am I doing well? What areas are lacking? What could I add or take away from my life to meet these needs? When you incorporate things into (or out of) your life that meet these aspects of self, you are in balance and when you are in balance you feel capable, confident, and at peace. Working on these things will likely be a lifelong project, we are after all, human and move into and out of balance as our lives change . It is absolutely

possible to achieve balance as long as you are willing to take the first step and make one small change.

Gwen Stefanishin won $100,000 on her LOTTO MAX ticket, but it took her quite some time to realize it when she checked her numbers online. Stefanishin won her prize on the June 30 EXTRA draw.

“I checked the numbers on the website, so I was reading them number-bynumber,” she explained at her prize claim interview. “At first I thought I had won $10, then I thought $1,000.”

“I was completely shocked when I realized I had matched the last six numbers and it was $100,000 winner!”

The MacGregor local purchased her winning ticket from the MacGregor Gas Bar, located at 235 Government Road. She said although the first part of her win took some time to grasp, there was one thing that took her no time at all:

deciding what to do with her windfall.

“A vacation somewhere warm in January,” she said. “That was the first thing that came to my mind after I figured out that I had won.”

Stefanishin said she feels thankful to have won the lottery.

“I feel extremely grateful,” she said. “This win will do so much for me.”

LOTTO MAX tickets are available at all Lotto Spot retail locations, Subscription Spot, the Lotto Spot app and on PlayNow until 9:30 p.m. CT the night of the draw.

Local store for kids and adults welcomes all for a celebration

hid’n hollow to host grand opening on Aug. 15, 2023


A store playfully named for its somewhat hidden location just off Neepawa’s main street, is now pretty hard to miss. And it’s owners are ready to celebrate their official grand opening with the community.

After completing its three phase store goals outlined in the Banner & Press last November – upgrading the interior, establishing stock and finishing interior and exterior murals – hid’n hollow ~ a kid store and more, located at 266 Davidson Street, is set for its official Grand Opening on Tuesday, Aug. 15 at 9:45am. The store will be open 10-6 that day to allow time for all interested to attend.

The day will include a Ten Ticket Tour of hid’n hollow, where patrons can get acquainted with the store through a series of draws, located throughout it’s rooms, that will be matched to their ticket card number, as well there will be an hourly draw of items that have been generously donated by many of the store’s vendors. For all kids 12 and under, there will be a Lollipop Pull game as well, where everyone is a

winner! There will also be specials that day on select items and clearance prices on inventory inherited with the original building purchase, such as music items, Jets jerseys, picture frames and more.

“We’ve had a chance to get established in the space now and we’re ready to welcome everyone in to celebrate this new business with us,” Daryl

who owns hid’n hollow with his wife Belinda, said. “Our main goal was to complete some interior and exterior upgrades, as well as stock a large, diverse inventory, before the official opening celebration. Customers will notice a significant change in the initial product lines we opened with in November, to the additions now found throughout the store.”

The building’s exterior has recently completed it’s eye-catching transformation to feature a mural of whimsical creatures playing among the forest hollow. This transformation was created via painting and repair efforts of Bannerman Painting, while the mural was envisioned by two local artists, Katy Martin and Meaghan Peters, and is supported in part by the Town of Neepawa’s Storefront Improvement Program.

Katy and Meaghan also painted the mural in the store’s foyer, depicting the hollow from the inside, earlier this year.

“We can not thank each of these individuals enough! Katy and Meaghan have created an amazingly playful and beautiful storefront façade that mimics a page right out of a fairytale storybook. We couldn’t be more excited with the end results,” said Daryl. “We’ve had a lot of positive response to opening. Customers have commented on the uniqueness of the store for Neepawa, and the variety of toys and games available for kids, or presents for young and old.”

“The store is full of fun things for all ages,” Belinda noted. “We wanted to make coming to the store a fun experience and outing for everyone. It’s been really neat seeing kids and fam-

ilies stop for photos and to interact with the murals. It’s added just that much more of a whimsical feel to the store.”

Inside, the store has seen significant growth in inventory and has a much wider offering than when it opened last November. In addition to stocking toys, books and puzzles, hid’n hollow also has over 400 board and card games, art supplies, fidget and sensory toys, Squishmallows, Schleich, LEGO, Hot Wheels and Nerf, candy, trading cards (hockey,

Pokémon and fantasy), crafts, STEAM activities and Aboriginal giftware. A birthday and baby gift registry has also recently been established.

“With the mural now complete word is getting out that we are here,” noted Daryl. The Critchlows are hoping the Grand Opening will attract people of all ages to check out what their hid’n hollow has to offer. “We have completed all phases of the transformation of the store and we look forward to celebrating that with everyone!”

Psychiatric Nursing history brought to light

‘A little something for everyone!’

Gladstone Fair ready to its return

The Gladstone Ag Society is looking forward to welcoming new friends and old acquaintances to the annual Gladstone Fair. The event, scheduled from Friday, Aug. 11 to Sunday, Aug. 13, expects to be a massive celebration for the community.

Ag Society secretary Tara Fulton told the Banner & Press that the committee members involved with the planning

for this year’s festivities, are already feeling very excited about what you’ll see during the weekend.

“There’s a lot of work going on right now, just getting all the last minute preparations together, and while it’s hectic, we’re still very happy with where we’re at for getting all the supplies together and ensuring all the events are set to go,” said Fulton. “As a community, we take a lot of pride in doing something like this, that’ll have a little something for everyone.”

The array of events Fulton references include pancake breakfasts, a softball tournament, Manitoba Barrel Racing Association (MBRA) competition and children’s & full scale parades. Those events have become a welcome tradition each and every year in Gladstone.

One specialty event, however, that’ll take place only this year, is the grand opening of Gladstone’s new Swimming Pool. Fulton said it wonderful that the work

could be completed on the project in time to coincide with their local festivities.

“It's nice that we can do this, and I think there's a fair bit of excitement around [the fair and the pool opening] and people are really looking forward to weekend.”

The Gladstone Fair will also feature fireworks, the musical act Bullruckus and a kid’s form party. The event runs from Friday, Aug. 11 to Sunday, Aug. 13.

Beverley Hicks’ book Politics, Personalities and Persistence One Hundred Years of Psychiatric Nursing Education in Manitoba tells about the celebration of 100 years of psychiatric nursing education in Manitoba.

Did you know the first psychiatric nursing graduation in western Canada and perhaps all of Canada happened at the old Brandon Mental Hospital in 1923? Seven young women received diplomas of Psychiatric Nursing in a ceremony in the auditorium of the old hospital.

And did you know the first university in Canada to offer a baccalaureate degree in psychiatric nursing was Brandon University? Brandon has been a pioneer in psychiatric education for one hundred years.

Learn more about this district and unique profession, which is only practised as a registered profession in western Canada by watching the documentary which will be aired on NACTV on Monday, August 7 at 8 pm and Wednesday, August 9 at 3:15 pm.

Hear stories that range from a 92 year old psychiatric nurse, Vivian Hildebrand who lives right in Neepawa and who practised psychiatric nursing in the 1950’s right up to the class that graduated from Brandon University this past June, 100 years after the first class.

Sharing and celebrating culture through dance Yednist School of Ukrainian Dance coming to Minnedosa

Later this month, Minnedosa will serve as a ‘тимчасовий будинок’ (temporary home) to some of western Manitoba’s most talented Ukrainian dancers.

The Yednist School of Ukrainian Dance has organized a summer dance day camp for Aug. 8 to 12 at the Community Conference Centre. The camp is open to all interested dancers aged 7-to-18.

Pamela Nowosad-Federowich, one of the cofounders of the School, which was established in Winnipeg in 2019, said that this foray into western Manitoba is something they have dreamed of doing for quite some time.

“This has always been an idea for our group, since we began operations in 2019. Shortly after we started our [most recent] dance season, one of the parents in our group brought forward the idea, and since it was already an idea on the back-burner for us, we decided to make it a reality,” stated Nowosad-Federowich.

“We chose Minnedosa for a number of reasons.

First, as a group, our vision is to share and celebrate Ukrainian culture and heritage with everyone, regardless of nationality. Ou r group is very community-minded and we make it a priority to reach out to other communities and participate in their events whenever possible. We pa rticipated in an event last summer in Minnedosa and we were overwhelmed with how welcoming and inviting the people of Minnedosa were at that time, and we wanted to give back to the community to show

them our support, as well.

In addition, Minnedosa portrays such an amazing resort-like summer atmosphere, and we thought it would be a wonderful venue for families to come together and take part in

everything Minnedosa has to offer.”

As for the local response to the Yednist School’s upcoming arrival, NowosadFederowich said it’s been just what they hoped it would be, as dancers from


A special guest

Along with the established teachers at Yednist School of Ukrain -



ian Dance, the camp in Minnedosa will also include a special guest instructor, Tymothy Jaddock.

Originally from Dauphin, Jaddock has made a career from dancing throughout North America and Europe. The former corps de ballet member of the Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Company of Edmonton, now resides in New York City.

Nowosad-Federowich noted they are very happy to have a performer of Jaddock’s caliber, return to his home region to give back in this manner.

“[Tymothy] is always eager to support the area that he grew up in, and we are equally as excited to have him join us for the week and share his passion for Ukrainian dance with our camp dancers.”

The Ukrainian Dance Camp will feature morning sessions for ages 7-to11 and full day sessions for ages 12-to-18

Neepawa Titans unveil financial details at their annual general meeting A grim reality that can’t be sugar coated

There’s no sugar coating the stark reality the Neepawa Titans are facing as they go into their 35th season in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. Unless substantial changes happen to the team’s fortunes in the year ahead, there may not be a 36th season.

The junior ‘A’ hockey club held its annual general meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 1 at the Neepawa Library. At the get-together, the executive board offered up the financial details from the previous fiscal year, ending May 31. Over the course of the 2022-2023 fiscal year, the Titans accumulated a loss of $89,251. That is the single largest one year loss the club has had in the last decade. As well, that number now increases the total deficit for the Titans to $387,994.

The total amount of revenue brought in by the Titans last year was $423,369, an increase of $7,332. Expenses, however, also rose, to $516,177, compared to $480,790 in 2022-2023. The increase in expenses can be attributed simply to the inflationary pressures Canada has faced over the last two years. According to the latest figures from the Bank of Canada, the cost of goods and services across the country is up 11.17 per cent since 2021. Like all of us, the Neepawa Titans are seeing that trickle down to their bottom line.

More specific reasons for the team’s losses can be seen in a bump to league fees, bus rentals and payments for game officials last season. Those increased by $18,000, $9,000 and $3,000, respectively.

Team vice president Jamie

Denbow, who chaired the meeting, said all that contributed to the current situation.

“Overall, it was a poor financial year,” stated Denbow. “Our debt load is now reaching a point that is unbearable for our current structure.”

Denbow added that the Titans’ board of directors has reviewed the outlook and believe there are three things that must be addressed immediately.

First is making the playoffs, as even playing in a single bestof-seven series with the right opponent can bring in significant additional revenue. As well, the team must get maximum support from the community for sponsorships and the sale of the annual cash lottery, which has not sold out in recent years.

Second is a restructuring of the agreement with the Yellowhead

Centre, to see if an equal partnership on food and liquor sales is a possibility.

And third, and perhaps most important, is truly becoming a community team, with ‘community’ being defined as more than just the Town of Neepawa. Denbow stressed that engagements with as many local community leaders across the region is vital to the club’s survival.

“So I look at the opportunity for the team to be owned by 40 or 50 members, [within the region], each with a minimum investment, instead of the current ownership structure,” stated Denbow.

Neepawa Titans celebrate player signings

Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club makes two community presentations

Sixty people were served a wonderful steak supper at the Neepawa Titans Junior “A” Hockey Club’s Steakout on July 28 at the Neepawa Golf and Country Club. Fans, families and players gathered to be introduced to the auto-protected and newly signed players.

Neepawa Titans vice-president Jamie Denbow emceed the event and said, “The Titans are about hockey but they are also about giving back to the community. At the

2023 Neepawa Titans’ Sports Dinner, guest speaker Tyler McGregor only charged his travel and accommodation. Tyler is the captain of the Canadian Mens’ Sledge Hockey team. Instead of a speaker fee, he asked that we make a donation to an important community initiative and we selected the hospital fund as this initiative. Councillor Lisa Pottinger attended to accept the cheque on behalf of the Town of Neepawa.

Denbow explained. “For the 2023 Neepawa Titans Sports dinner, local photo artist Jodi Baker made a generous deal with the team by providing a package of her artwork for the fund raising auction. Part of that package was a canvas print of the now famous “Goals in Life” print to

be donated by the Neepawa Titans to the Yellowhead Centre for display in the lobby. YHC president Wayne Jacobsen, who is also the voice of the Titans on NACTV and HockeyTV attended the Steakout to receive the photo on behalf of The YHC.

The Neepawa Titans have a golf tournament and poker derby at the NGCC on August 11 and a hockey school and fall camp at the end of August at Neepawa’s Yellowhead Centre. There are still a few spaces available for golf and you can purchase a silent rider hand for the poker derby.

Doreen Ranson

Doreen passed away at the Carberry Personal Care

Home on June 26,2023 with family by her side at the age of 98.

She is lovingly remembered by her children, Michelle, Debbie Vine, Brenda (Jim) Strain, Eileen (Mervin) Quam, Joyce (Bill) Turner, Shirley (Dave) Paluch and son, Jim, thirteen grandchildren, twenty greatgrandchildren, and three great, great-grandchildren. She is also survived by one brother, Dale (Betty) Copeland and her life-long good friend, Dorothy Kilburn of Neepawa. Doreen was pre-deceased by husband, Fred, in 1998, four brothers and two sisters.

Doreen was born on September 26, 1924, to Alexander and Lorraine Copeland of Emerson, MB. and after graduating high school, she worked in Fort William, On. in a factory where women were helping make airplane parts to be used in the war. Following that she taught at the country school at Harte, MB and that was when she met Fred who farmed a few miles away. They were married June 16, 1944 and together they raised their family on that farm in the district of Petrel.

Mom was a very busy wife and mother, always involved in her children’s school and activities. She grew a large vegetable garden every year and especially loved her flowers. She was a very talented and creative seamstress and knitter, excellent cook and baker, and was also quite involved in the running of the farm with Dad. They took the children with them to church every Sunday, most often sewing their outfits and coats! Mom was a member of the United Church Women’s group and an active member of her community. She steadfastly encourage Michelle all through school until her graduation from Grade twelve and encouraged her to be involved in Special Olymics sports and activities.

Mom also was an Avon representative for many years and always enjoyed a visit with her customers. She was a volunteer news correspondent for the Carberry News Express Petrel news for thirty years!

She loved treating her grandchildren to baking, trips with Dad to take them to watch entertainment and having them for little holidays at the farm. She always welcomed visiting relatives and friends and would somehow manage to prepare a big meal for everyone.

She and Dad travelled to Florida, Las Vegas, Hawaii, and several provinces in Canada and after Dad’s passing she eventually went with family members on an Alaskan Cruise, trips to Nova Scotia, PEI, BC and Ireland. Mom just loved to travel!

Mom was a resident of Carberry Personal Care Home for 10 years and her family would like to sincerely thank the staff there for the compassionate and thoughtful care and for bringing out the sense of humour in her.

A funeral service was held on June 30, 2023 in Carberry United Church with Rev. Emma Seamone officiating and Whites Funeral Home in charge of arrangements. You will always be in our hearts Mom.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you and whispered, “ Come to Me”. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. Time will continue to go on, but we will always remember and love you, knowing that you are always watching us from your heavenly home.

It is with great sadness the family announce the passing of Karen Bartram at the Neepawa Regional Hospital after a brief illness On July 20, 2023 with family by her side.

Karen loved her years when she was a member of the Ladies Orange Lodge. Traveling to a convention was something she looked forward to.

During her time in Neepawa she made many friends in Touchwood Park and the supportive community of Neepawa. She never walked down the street without a hello from someone.

She is survived by her mother Marie, brothers: John (Rose), Ken (Gwen), Allan (Lynne), Bruce and Butch, sisters: Vivian Salmon, Brenda (Jim) McArthur, Cheryl (Blair) Workman, numerous nephews & nieces, great nephews & nieces and one Great-great nephew.

Letter to the Editor: Falling on deaf ears

Three articles in the July 21st Banner were spot on. Many hundreds more would add their support to Beth Proven’s statements regarding the tragic consequences of the MB Dept. Of Transportation and Infrastructure’s (MDTI) heel dragging on

badly needed safety improvememts to the intersection at highways #5 and #1.

Mr. Waddell’s point about the muddled bureaucracy and lack of common sense by the heavy thinkers at the department of highways is well taken and sadly not new.

His subsequent editorial in the July 28th Banner really brings this point home, along with a great deal of frustration.

It is interesting that there was an article from Manitoba Public Insurance lamenting the negative impact of speeding and the high rate of speeding among a good percentage of motorists.

So what did MDTI do in several cases to address safety? Nothing, or made moves that increased the risk to motorists.

They increased the speeds on the Trans Canada to 110 km/hr. Now your habitual speeders drive up to 118 km/hr without a worry of getting a ticket.

They didn’t immediately put in an 80 km/hr zone at the Carberry intersection or post a speed fines doubled sign after the horrific accident in June. Both very cheap meaningfull actions from a safety and a “we hear you” perspective.

Another example that makes no sense is when they rejected, several years ago, a request by the Town of Carberry to have a reduced speed zone on #5 highway on the east side of town where several roads

out of town intersect said highway.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that reducing the speed on this stretch of road until after McCain Foods and the Starch Plant make good “Safety Sense.”

As Mr. Waddell points out, who knows better than local residents and representatives what changes are required to improve safety. Road users from any community can tell you where change is required to increase safety.

The best we get is vague promises and dismissive correspondence about studying the situation.

Isn’t it MDTI’s mandate to make our roads as safe as possible? Wouldn’t it be nice if they showed the expedient concern that these life and death issues deserve?

I wonder if they will get rid of the piano that is dragging them down and stop lamely citing regulations since another serious accident had happened at highways #5 and #1 on Monday, July 31?

Don’t hold your breath.

Letter to the editor: The solution is at the ballot box

Continued from Page 5

The Pallister-Stephanson government have been big on tax cuts and reducing the size of the civil service. Their 2023 budget announced almost $1 billion in revenue cuts achieved in part by adjusting the provincial income tax brackets with the following results. The average saving for the bottom 20 percent of Manitoba tax fillers in 2024 is reported to be $37.00 per person while the average benefit for persons making $101,300 will be $1322.00. When I suggested to the picketers that their reduction in real income over the previous five years was being utilized to provide income and property tax cuts for the more affluent members of society they became rather emotional. The solution to their problem will not be found on the picket line but in

the ballot boxes of the October 23 provincial election. I drove home from this exchange asking, is it a legitimate role of government to systematically impoverish its employees? How many of the picketers I had spoken to had been previously charmed by a promise of future tax cuts recognize that they and their fellow civil servants are being called upon to fund these tax cuts through wage reductions and lay-offs. Will they be able to connect the dots between their loss of income and employment with the tax cuts that have been lavished upon the more affluent members of our society? We must now wait until the evening of October 23 for the answer.

Rolling Barrage returning to Neepawa

The Rolling Barrage will be thundering into Neepawa next weekend. The Barrage is an annual trans-Canada motorcycle ride in aid of fighting post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans, police, firefighters, paramedics and other serving and retired first responders. Their goal is to fight the stigma of PTSD and to raise funds for programs and organizations that aid first responders with their mental health.

This year, the motorists are set to arrive in town from Dryden, Ont. on the evening of Sunday, Aug. 13 at 6:00 p.m. Once they have arrived, they will motor from Riverbend Park (418 Davidson Street) to the Neepawa Legion (425 Brown Ave.). Here, they will enjoy a dinner before getting some rest for their journey to Saskatoon, Sask.

Anyone wishing to support the Rolling Barrage’s cause is welcome to leave a monetary donation with the Neepawa Legion ahead of the Aug. 13 event.
