A daughter’s memoir Book launch a success about dementia Banner Staff The Neepawa Banner

Submitted The Neepawa Banner Elizabeth Murray wanted to believe that her mother’s actions were nothing more than the normal aging of a sometimes difficult and determined woman. Had Murray not been absorbed with her own ill health, she might have been more concerned about her mother’s memory lapses and unusual behaviour but a battle with cancer, the death of her father and a strained relationship with her brothers had left her emotionally drained. It was easier to push aside her worries than to confront her fears that her mother was in the early stages of a debilitating disease. Released in November of 2015, Murray’s memoir, Holding on to Mamie: My Mother, Dementia and Me, chronicles her mother’s decline from dementia and its insidious transformation of a once vibrant woman. “After my mother was

forced to move into a nursing home, I found caches of notes crammed into the cupboards and drawers of her house,” explains Murray, who became the target for her mother’s increasing anger and paranoia as dementia took hold. “The notes contained bitter indictments against me for things that I had never said or done.” From the time she was a young girl, Murray had always been her mother’s ally and confidante. The notes were painful reminders of how dementia had changed their relationship. Murray includes some of the notes as a parallel narrative in the book which allows the reader to hear her mother’s perspective as well as her own. “I began writing as a quest for redemption,” said Murray. Her memoir has become more than a personal exercise in healing; by raising awareness of some of the darker symptoms of dementia, her story has helped others

If you shout a pleasant greeting to a friend too early in the morning, he will count it as a curse!

navigate their own journey with the disease. Murray’s hope is that sharing her experience will help to normalize dementia and reduce some of the stigma that surrounds the disease. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of her memoir will be donated to organizations dedicated to providing services to families who are living with dementia. Murray will be sharing her story and reading excerpts from Holding on to Mamie at the Minnedosa Regional Library on Tuesday, September 27 at 6:30 p.m. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and are also available at or at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg.

Neepawa Banner Perspective



by Chad Carpenter


Famine mentality


amine mentality is a new phrase for me. I just heard it in the past few days. I have heard of poverty mentality and I think it’s nearly the same thing. Poverty is something that should not exist in Canada nor should it exist in anyone’s mindset in this country. In other countries, it probably shouldn’t exist either but I don’t know a lot about other countries. I have only travelled on a very limited basis in Korea and the United States. But Canada I do know and western Canada I know pretty well. I know Manitoba and western Manitoba very well. . Poverty mentality says that there are limited resources that must be spread over too many people, so some will always fall short of food, housing or services. It’s a pervasive mind-set with numerous people ready to accept the premise. It’s sad, it’s mind-numbing and it’s crippling. It’s also false. We have almost unlimited resources. We have sun, rain, land, technology and smart people. What we don’t have is enough can-do attitude. If we are in fact short of food, then why do so few people grow a garden? If we are short of housing, then why do so few invest in housing? If we are short of services, especially medical services, then why did we let the NDP government disallow private investment in health care for 16 years. I have never been in a situation where I couldn’t have done more with what I had at my disposal. I doubt there is a person who couldn’t say the same. We can always do better, it just takes a little more thought, a little smarter work. If there’s a will, there’s a way. We seem to be missing a lot of will when there are so many ways to meet our needs. So let’s look at food. We could double or triple our food production in our gardens, or should I say our lack of gardens, in Manitoba. We may have a short growing season but the amount

Ken Waddell of food we do grow, could grow and the amount we leave to rot on the ground is astounding. Grass is nice and flowers are nice but you can’t eat much grass directly in the human diet. How about housing? We don’t have a shortage of housing in Manitoba. We have a lack of housing policies. In Neepawa, we could have more apartments in our decaying core area. All it would take is to amend one Town of Neepawa policy that requires that apartments have 1.5 car parking spaces per apartment. The theory is that apartment dwellers will have 1.5 cars and the on-street parking has to be left for business owners and business customers. Occasionally, we have a parking congestion problem in Neepawa, but I have never in 46 years had to park more than a block from where I was wanting to go. Many towns would like to have a parking problem. In most rural towns, even in the busier ones, you can get a parking spot and there are times when you can shoot a cannon down main street and not hit a person or a car. One stupid policy in Neepawa stands between more affordable housing and not having adequate housing. On this issue, basically our town council has insufficient foresight, imagination or fortitude. Services are sadly lacking in the health care field and yet we spend 40 per cent of our provincial budget on health care and countless billions in private

money on things the province doesn’t supply, such as drugs and both physical and mental therapy. Our Minister of Health Kelvin Goertzen said last week, “If we don’t change how we do things soon, by 2030, there will only be two departments of government left, health and finance.” Think about it folks, 2030. That’s not far away, only 14 years. The babies born this year will just be going into high school when that happens. Goertzen put out the challenge that we have to look at private investment in items like MRIs and CAT scans. I think we need to go a lot further than that. We need to allow and encourage private investment in many aspects of health, education and other government provided services. Many potential innovations and development are hampered by dumb rules. I cited the parking issue above. Here’s another one. It’s not related to health or education but every level of government has dumb rules that seem to make no sense at all. This one happens to be another planning rule. If you have a commercial building in a rural town you can build right out to the property line both front and back. If it’s zoned as an institutional building it has to have a 20 foot space between the building and the back alley or rear road. Who dreamed up all these dumb inherited rules? Better yet, why don’t those with the authority to do so, change them?

Share the pain

n August 2011, I toured the west side of Lake Manitoba with then MLA Stu Briese. Months after the spring run off, lake levels were still high and the flooding was widespread. A wet fall, snowy winter and wet spring combined to create spring flooding across the province. Around Lake Manitoba, there was an extra, unnatural factor, the Portage Diversion. Designed to handle 25,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), the MY diversion’s capPERSPECTIVE acity was amped up to 35,000 cfs to protect more valuable crops and properties ate along the Asackman tkinson siniboine east of Portage. In 2011, the Portage Diversion was in operation for 125 days, significantly more than any other year since 1970, and handled 4.77 million acre feet of water, close to double the second highest volume. These factors combined to raise the lake level by five feet, a significant increase in an area characterized by flat landscapes– there was lake five or more miles inland from its usual shores. While the diversion pumps water in at a rapid pace, there is no corresponding outlet. It took years of drought to bring water levels back to normal. It took until 2015 for the federal and provincial governments to commit to the construction of a permanent outlet to replace the emergency one cut in 2011. While the flooding was called a natural disaster, it wasn’t really. Provincial officials were worried that the banks along the Assiniboine wouldn’t hold and property owners around Lake Manitoba were intentionally flooded. It was a calculated tradeoff, but those flooded weren’t recognized for their sacrifice. The Assiniboine River doesn’t naturally drain into Lake Manitoba and while there was some compensation, no one was truly made whole or fully recognized for seeing their homes and livelihoods underwater. Last week, a provincial review of the guidelines governing Manitoba’s flood control infrastructure was made public. The authors looked at the impact of past flooding and made recommendations for future operations of flood mitigation infrastructure. A lot has changed since the diversion began operating in the 1970s, there are competing interests and a more widespread lack of understand about agriculture. In the end, the review called for a better balance between the needs of those living along Lake Manitoba and those living on the lower portions of the Assiniboine River. The report noted something those farming around the lake know, the difference between quickly receding river flooding and long-lasting lake flooding. The report noted, “The impact [of increased flows] on the lower Assiniboine is immediate and observable, but the long-term impact of accumulated diversion volumes may be greater on Lake Manitoba.” The changes proposed in the report will spread the impact of flooding a little more equitably. The original operating objectives for the Portage Diversion state that operation of the diversion shouldn’t increase Lake Manitoba levels beyond 812.87 feet above sea level, but the current operating guidelines don’t take lake levels into account in the decision to operate the diversion. The proposed changes would tie the maximum desirable flow in the lower Assiniboine River to Lake Manitoba levels, as well as the river level in Winnipeg. The Panel proposed that if levels on Lake Manitoba are forecast to remain below 813 feet, then the current rules should be maintained. If Lake Manitoba levels are forecast to peak above 813 feet, the decision-making is based on a balance of interests. However, if Lake Manitoba levels are near or at flood stage, then as much flow as can safely be handled should be sent down the lower Assiniboine. The report’s authors note that this proposed change will undoubtedly aggravate flooding on the lower Assiniboine River, but it also recognizes that under unregulated conditions, all the flow would continue down the Assiniboine River, resulting in widespread flooding. They note, “this operating guideline change is an attempt to share the pain.” For many who looked out to see a sea of water where there was grass, sharing the pain is something they’d like to see.

SEPTEMBER 16, 2016

Justice is blind—not deaf I n previous columns, I identified what I believe are the two foundation stones of a just society. The first is that the laws themselves must set out clear standards of right and wrong. They must show consistent respect for human life, human rights and private property. In addition, they must allow for individuals to decide whether or not they will believe in a god and if so, which one; where they will live, what they will do for a living and the relationships they will pursue. I also suggested that those who enforce the laws—the police and courts—must judge each case on the evidence presented. They must stubbornly refuse to be influenced by any personal biases they may have. There is no place for racial profiling or other similar practices in a just society. But they exist and they are, in my view, one of many reasons why there is such a lack of trust in those who make the laws, who enforce the laws and even in the courts that interpret


Neil Strohschein the laws. So how did this lack of trust become so entrenched in modern society? It all started quite simply. Someone had a complaint—a grievance—and took it to the appropriate authorities seeking a just settlement of the dispute. But instead of listening to the complaint, those in authority reacted in a dogmatic and dictatorial manner—imposing “their solution” to the problem and then passing a policy or law (or both) that made sure future complaints would be handled in the same way. Now; let’s move the calendar ahead 140 years to our period of history. In addition to the initial grievance, we now have a long list of similar grievances, none of which have been dealt with in a just manner and a gap between

identifiable groups that will take generations to bridge. So how can we begin the process of bridging these gaps? By adopting a strategy that was used when the First Century church faced a similar issue. You can read the whole story in Acts 15. Here is the condensed version. The church found itself sharply divided on an issue of doctrine. One group was determined to impose its interpretation of the gospel on the other. Both sides dug in their heels and refused to budge from their positions. Finally, they appealed to the leaders of the church in Jerusalem and said: “Here’s the issue. We’re right. They’re wrong. We want justice.” How did the leaders in Jerusalem respond? To begin with, they said nothing. They listened as

each side presented its case. Then they helped the disputing parties identify beliefs they shared in common and base a just solution to their conflict on that foundation. Neither side got everything they wanted. But they came away with a deeper understanding of the issues and a willingness to “agree to disagree” on some minor points if it helped keep peace in the family of God. In building a just society, we must always remember that while justice is blind, it’s not deaf! A first step in finding just solutions to perennial grievances is for the parties involved to go to a room, lock the door to reporters and photographers, sit down across a table and listen to what the other side has to say. Don’t stop listening until everyone in the room has heard and understood everything that everyone else has to say. Then, look for the things shared in common and build a lasting solution on that common ground. That is a good place to begin.

Working with salvage and waxing creative


t was important to me to have a garage. And then to be doubly blessed with not only an attached single car garage, but a double garage/workshop in the back yard! My family wondered at my need to keep, and relocate, the tools, the saws, the whole kit and caboodle from the shop, but I knew what I wanted and they quietly complied. Right down to letting me keep the chainsaw, but there is one ancient wooden ladder missing! The back door of the single car garage was less than beautiful, and beauty is not the only pre-requisite for a door, but it was also less than serviceable. The door knob had no catch mechanism, and so to keep the door closed there was a toggle at the bottom. So if the door was closed, you could only get out, not in. The wooden door had a

Carefully removed the broken window, and proceeded to attempt to hang the door. The empty window opening made it lighter and easier to handle. Oh my, the door physically fit the opening, I measured twice! But the door jamb was twisted, seriously, and much shaping with saw and sander was

Assured that I was on the right path, I toiled on. It fits snugly! Within the boxes of ‘stuff’ we moved over, there was a never-been -opened door knob kit. I installed that with minimal knuckle busting. On to the window. I carefully installed an acrylic window, caulked and framed, into one side and mounted the heritage piece on the other

There are those of you who will recognize how rewarding it is to have the correct drill, bits and bores, the correct saw, (I used the mitre, the table and the jig!), the sander and the chisel. I even cased the opening. Now it took me the better part of two days to complete my project. But I worked with salvage, I waxed creative and I love the finished product. The door closes, with a bit of encouragement, but I believe that with the winter shift it will be perfect. I believe. Countless trips from project to shop, at least 20 steps for every trip, forth and back, forth and back, tools scattered at my feet, dogs watching. The garage is lighter, brighter, and every time I see the window I smile. It’s all good.

you’ll have freedom to do as you please and go wherever you want to. However, by then you have reached the fall and winter season of your life and these golden years are not always as shiny as they are supposed to be. It says in Ecclesiastes 3:1,2a “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the Heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die…” It is all in God’s wise bestowment. God created me in my mother’s womb and it is God Who will call me Home. May our day be full of peace and joy as we trust God, for His timeline is perfect.



Carbon tax needs referendum The provincial election made one thing clear: major tax increases require referendums. Premier Brain Pallister recently hired David McLaughlan to work on the campaign promise to “develop a made-in-Manitoba climate action plan” that includes “carbon pricing.” The promise is vague, but if the government forces people to pay for carbon, it’s a carbon tax. A carbon tax must start with a referendum. The PC platform clearly promises to “bring in legislation in the first legislative session restoring Manitobans’ right to vote on any proposed major tax increases.” Premier Pallister strongly reinforced that promise. “Let’s trust Manitobans to make the decisions on whether these major taxes are going to be increased or not,” said Premier Pallister during the campaign. “Let’s give them the right to vote on these major issues.” Despite this clarity, there’s always temptation for political spin doctors to twist promises. Let’s expose and dispose of those temptations. The first twist a spin doctor might attempt is to claim the referendum promise only applies to major taxes such as business taxes, sales taxes, income taxes and health and education taxes. The promise leaves room to change “minor taxes” such as tobacco taxes. A carbon tax wouldn’t count, right? Ontario’s cap-and-trade system imposes huge costs on businesses and many of those costs are passed on to consumers. British Columbia’s carbon tax directly imposes higher costs on virtually everything, including a 6.7 cent per litre tax on gasoline. There’s nothing minor about a carbon tax, so a referendum would be necessary. But what if the carbon tax is offset by other tax cuts so it’s revenue neutral? The real question is: revenue neutral for who? Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says her province’s carbon tax is revenue neutral because the money stays in the province even though it’s in government coffers rather than people’s pockets – obviously, that’s not neutral for taxpayers. BC trims other taxes in proportion to carbon tax hikes, but BC’s system is far from neutral for many people who are stuck with higher prices at the pump and don’t get any benefits from boutique tax cuts such as a film tax credit. Imagine what it might look like in Manitoba. A film-maker biking to work in downtown Winnipeg could pocket a film tax credit without paying much more in carbon taxes and therefore come out ahead. However, a farmer near Morden might get an income tax break, but pay an extra $90 in carbon taxes every time the combine needs fuel and come out way behind. Even a so-called revenue neutral carbon tax has thousands of winners and thousands of losers and everyone has a right to vote in a referendum. A spin doctor might try a simple twist: the carbon tax is in the platform so the people have already spoken. It’s important to read the platform carefully. It promises to “develop a made-in-Manitoba climate action plan.” Making a plan and implementing it are different things. Further, the real meat of any platform is found in the numbers and there are no numbers in any of the campaign documents about a carbon tax. Lastly, moving beyond planning to actually implement a carbon tax would be subject to the referendum promise. In the end, a spin doctor might shrug and point out that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is going to impose a national carbon tax and there’s nothing the province can do about it. Not so. Premiers stand up to prime ministers routinely. Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall is setting the example by leading the opposition to a carbon tax. Premier Pallister cannot collaborate with Prime Minister Trudeau on a carbon tax without a referendum. Premier Pallister got his job largely because he said Manitobans have the right to vote on tax hikes. If Premier Pallister trusts Manitobans, he will hold a referendum before implementing a carbon tax. Todd MacKay Prairie Director, Canadian Taxpayers Federation

British world champion to tour Canada for the first time Submitted Canadian Wrestling Elite Professional wrestling is red hot again around the entire world, but perhaps nowhere near as hot as it has become in Canada. Canadian Wrestling’s Elite (CWE) has been making history by the day, as it develops into Canada’s only cross country touring brand of professional wrestling. It currently touring regularly in four provinces with plans to expand even further in the new year. With history making a common occurrence for CWE, it’s only natural that it is set to create more history with it’s newest multi-provincial tour, as for the first time ever the current recognized World Champion will be a part of the CWE. The Destined For Greatness Tour takes place from Sept. 22 to Oct. 1. Headlining the tour is current Global Force Wrestling World Champion Nick “Magnus” Aldis. The superstar is the first ever British competitor to hold a major World Championship, a

feat he accomplished with two TNA Wrestling World Championships. Now with the upstart Global Force Wrestling, which has affiliates all over the planet, Nick Aldis has proudly become the first man to capture the company’s World title and will tour across Canada with it for the first time ever. This acquisition is not only a huge score for Canadian Wrestling’s Elite but Canadian wrestlers as a whole, as 10 different Canadian born athletes will have a chance to compete and win that World Championship throughout that tour. Among thoses striving for the gold the nephew of the legendary Bret “Hitman” Hart, Saskatchewan wrestling veterans, Winnipeg wrestling heroes, and Ontario wrestling natives, all looking to etch their name in the history books and become World Champion! The tour also features Gladstone’s own Bobby Collins. On Thursday, Sept. 29, the tour will stop in Gladstone, at the Gladstone District Community Cen-

What’s in the bag? You decide! By Tony Eu The Neepawa Banner Since May 9, Farm Credit Canada (FCC) has been doing their annual Drive Away Hunger food drive. Although the Oct. 14 end is in sight, it’s still not too late to lend a helping hand. Monetary donations can be dropped off at any FCC office in Canada and designated to go to the food bank of your choice across Canada. If you want your money to stay local, Neepawa, Minnedosa and Carberry all have food banks that could always use some extra help. Monetary donations can also be made online, at, by going to the ‘In Your Community’ tab and clicking on ‘FCC Drive Away Hunger’. Online, you can designate your money to be used nationally, provincially or locally, although the only local food bank the website has listed is the one in Minnedosa. If you’d rather donate food, you can drop off your donation at any of the FCC offices or at any of the ‘drop boxes’ around town. The drop boxes are located at a number of local businesses. Schools in the area are also be lending a hand, collecting food and donations from students. In addition to receiving donations, on Friday, Sept. 23, from 2 pm to 5 pm, members from the FCC will be selling pre-packaged food bundles to be donated to the drive at the NeepawaGladstone Co-op grocery in Neepawa. The food collected in the area will stay in the area, with it being distributed to the three local food banks. In Neepawa, the food bank is looked after by the Salvation Army. “Most of this food goes towards our Christmas hampers,” said Amanda Naughton-Gale, the manager of the Salvation Army, about the use of the food received from Drive Away Hunger. “The vast majority [goes to] the about 100 families we end up helping out, plus or minus, at the Christmas time,” Naughton-Gale continued, “but then any of the extra goes back into our regular food bank, which we run all year round,” she added. The Salvation Army food bank helps out between 55 to 65 families in the greater Neepawa area year round, which ends up being over 1,000 meals served every year. In order to provide that many meals though, the food bank needs more than just one food drive. “[At] NACI, the kids

do the Scare Away Hunger food drive at Halloween and that’s the other big one that happens,” NaughtonGale said. “There’s lots of little initiatives that happen throughout the year, a lot of the churches do little food drives, we’ve had food drives done by Scouts or Guides and other small groups throughout the year, but [Drive Away Hunger and Scare Away Hunger] really are our most major ones and really kind of stock our shelves for the rest of the year,” NaughtonPHOTO BY TONY EU Gale added.

Rosedale rural water project progressing

Rural Outlook

SEPTEMBER 16, 2016

Smallacombe - Sims Hart Parr 30-60 tractor

By Ken Waddell The Neepawa Banner

After many long years of wishing and hoping, mixed in with numerous meetings and planning, the RM of Rosedale appears to be poised for the constructing of a rural water pipeline. Rural Municipality of Rosedale municipality CAO, Kara Sylvester said, “We have received a grant for the $3 million project. The federal government is putting up 50 per cent, the province and the RM 25 per cent each.” The RM is working closely with the Manitoba Water Services Board on a Water Sales Agreement with the Town of Neepawa. About 40 customers have expressed interest and have until Oct. 7, 2016 to make a $1,000 deposit. About 25 to 30 other customers have also showed some interest as well. Tendering is expected to go out in early 2017 and construction is expected to start in the spring of 2017 and has to be completed under the agreement with the senior levels of government by March of 2018. Town of Neepawa CAO, Colleen Synchyshyn said there will be an agreement developed that will be subject to approval by Neepawa council. Synchyshyn said that the Water Services Board has told the Town of Neepawa that with the third well recently installed at Hummerston there will be plenty of water to supply the town’s future needs as well as the Rosedale customers.


The Smallacombe - Sims Hart Parr 30-60 in the museum’s collection is seen here sometime in the early 1920s as it powers a threshing machine in the field. Of all the tractors and steam  engines in the collection, this is the only photo the Museum has in its possession that shows a tractor in the collection actually working in the field. Submitted Manitoba Agricultural Museum

At the 2016 Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede, Mr. David Stemler asked a Manitoba Agricultural Museum volunteer where the 30-60 Hart Parr tractor donated by the Sims Brothers was on the grounds. While taking Mr. Stemler to the tractor, Mr. Stemler identified himself to the volunteer as a descendant of Will Smallacombe who purchased this tractor when it was new. Mr Stemler indicated

he may have a photo of the 30-60 at work on the Smallacombe farm. The volunteer then asked if he would consider donating a digital copy of this photo to the museum. A digital copy was received by the Museum several days later and is the image seen here of a Hart Parr 30-60 powering a threshing machine. This photo is the only known photograph the museum has of a tractor in the museum’s collection actually working in the field during its working life. 

Mr Stemler thought the photograph had been taken sometime in the 1920s. As the photograph appears to be taken with a film camera, which were somewhat common by the 1920s, the date appears to be correct. Previous to 1920, film cameras were somewhat rare, with glass plate cameras being in common use. While the glass plate cameras were usually high quality cameras producing good quality images, they were expensive, not particularly user friendly and

the glass plate negatives were heavy and prone to breakage. A glass plate camera in the hands of the average person was a rare event, but were commonly used by commercial photographers. William Smallacombe was one of six sons of Thomas and Lydia Smallacombe. Thomas was born in Devonshire, England and immigrated to Ontario with his parents in 1855. He married Lydia Perkins of Osborne Ontario in 1874. Continued on page 17

Neepawa Natives unveil new road sweaters Submitted Neepawa Natives media release

The Neepawa Natives will be sporting a slightly different look on the ice this year, as the junior ‘A’ club has introduced a new road sweater for the 2016-2017 Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) season. The jersey is similar to the throwback worn by the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2009 NHL Winter Classic. It features a block N on the chest with the name Natives written in cursive over it. A secondary roundel mark with a block N, the full team name and the year the club joined the Manitoba Junior Hockey League is featured on the shoulders. Neepawa Natives board president Ken Waddell said the familiar indian head, which has been in use by the junior ‘A’ club since 1989, will remain the team’s primary logo. He noted however, that this new look is an effort to expand the team’s branding. The sweater has been generously sponsored by the Beautiful Plains Community Foundation (BPCF), through its marketing budget. Foundation president Jane Goudie said that Beautiful Plains is happy to team up with the Neepawa Natives to promote the foundation in a new way. “As our grant requests grow, the Foundation is seeking new ways of raising awareness about the positive impact the organization has had over the last 20 plus years,” said Goudie. “We want to keep the BPCF name front and centre as community members plan their yearly charitable donations.” Waddell added that the Neepawa Natives are very pleased to be able to partner with The Beautiful Plains Community Foundation to help market the foundation across Manitoba. “Wherever the team goes, the BPCF will be featured on our jerseys and in photos. The Neepawa Natives are good ambassadors for Neepawa and area. This partnership enhances that effort,” noted Waddell. “The traditional logo will still be used at home and the new one is matched up with the BPCF logo away from home. The BPCF support is greatly appreciated. The Natives board believes it is a great partnership.” The Neepawa Natives junior ‘A’ hockey club was established in 1989 and has been community owned since 2007. It has a proud history of developing players for all levels of hockey, including the NCAA, Major Junior, CIS and professional ranks.    The Beautiful Plains Community Foundation was created in 1995 and through the interest on its endowment fund, provides grants to not-for-profit organizations in the Town of Neepawa, RM of Rosedale, RM of Glenella-Lansdowne and the Langford portion of the RM of North Cypress- Lang-

Riley Vautour (12) attempts to slip the puck pass the Winkler goaltender, during the Natives/Flyers game at the Yellowhead Centre on Saturday, Sept. 10. By Eoin Devereux The Neepawa Banner

If the future of the Neepawa Natives was in fact on display on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at the Yellowhead Centre, the team should be feeling very optimistic about its long term outlook. A roster of rookies took to the ice against a group of future prospects from the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, and were able to claim a 3-0 victory. 17-year-old Benoit Mowbray, of St. Lazare, scored a pair of goals for the Natives, while Minnedosa’s Ryan Heino and Joey Baker of Morden each notched a pair of assists apiece. Bradley Marshall, who played for the Parkland Rangers last season, contributed the other goal for Neepawa. Miles Minor of the Winnipeg Monarchs and Reese Jones of the Yellowhead Chiefs split the goaltending duties and earned the shutout. After their first game of the pre-season, Neepawa Natives head coach Dustin Howden said he was very pleased with the effort put forward by the young prospects. He added that seeing the players improve as the game progressed, in regard to puck possession and limiting of their

opponents scoring opportunities, was encouraging. As for the next game for the Natives, the majority of the returning players were in the lineup for their matchup in Winkler on Friday, Sept. 9. This was the first game of a home and home with the Flyers, and would see Neepawa fall 5-2. The Natives bounced back quickly the following night though, by taking the second game by the score of 3-1. Justin Metcalf, Reigan Buchanan and Sam Stewart scored for Neepawa, while Ryan Burton notched the lone goal for the visiting Flyers. Goaltenders Tyler Gutenberg and Ryan Bezan combined for the win. Winkler outshot Neepawa 32-26 over the course of the game. Head coach Dustin Howden said the coaching staff was pleased with the effort they saw out there from the players. “The team chemistry is starting to come together. With so many returning players from last season there is already a level of comfort out there. They’re still working hard in practice though, to improve on that familiarity and be able to execute during games. [The coaching staff] has been working really hard

with them. We’ve been driving home the point that puck possession is very important and you can see them taking those lessons to heart and using the information in game. There are still little things that need to improve, but it’s the start of the year and that’s to be expected. Overall, I’m pleased with how things have progressed,” noted Howden. The next game for the Natives was on Tuesday, Sept. 13 in Waywayseecappo, against the Wolverines. Wayway gained a measure of revenge over Neepawa by winning that contest 4-2. The Natives return home to the Yellowhead Centre for their final preseason game on Saturday, Sept. 17, when they play the Dauphin Kings.

The team comprised of Coreen Roy and Cathy Hofner was able to claim top spot at the third annual Sunflower Golf Classic, hosted by the Neepawa Golf and Country Club, on Saturday, Sept. 10. By Eoin Devereux The Neepawa Banner Just over 90 competitors hit the links in Neepawa on Saturday, Sept. 10, looking to claim top prize in the third annual Sunflower Fall Classic Golf Tournament. At the conclusion of the day, it was the team consisting of Coreen Roy of McCreary and Cathy Hofner, from Ste. Rose Du Lac, who were the champions. At the end of 18 holes, Roy and Hofner were tied with Wanda Austin and Sandra Williams on the leaderboard

with 81 points each in the points-per-hole structure. The rules of the event were that the team which was able to accumulate the most points on the back nine would be awarded the tiebreaker. Third place would go to Jane Troop and Judy Prange. After the event, Roy and Hofner, who were competing in the Sunflower for the very first time, reflected on the day.

Minnedosa, Scare Away Hunger is Carberry’s other main food drive. The Carberry Community Food Cupboard is usually accessed about 120 times per year, which amounts to between 300 and 400 bags of food. For the food cupboard, FCC’s Drive Away Hunger is a huge part in their operations. “It keeps us well stocked,” said Peggy Reid a volunteer with the food cupboard. “There are certain times of the year where people are more generous and certain times when something comes up and it keeps us over those leaner moments,” she concluded. Regardless of how much or how little you can give, any contribution is greatly appreciated.

The tractor was one of the first gas engines in the Museum’s collection Continued from page 8 In 1878, Thomas came out to Manitoba and homesteaded a quarter in the Huron district, which is west of Purves, Manitoba. Thomas returned to Ontario in 1879 for his wife and two children, William and Albert. After they came back to the homestead, they were blessed with four more boys and one girl. At some point, Thomas and Lydia moved to a farm in the Crystal City area.  William Smallacombe, however, remained in the Purves area and operated on a farm on the NE 1/4 18-2-10. In 1902, he married Lydia Shobbrook from Londesoro, Ont. The family history is silent as to how he met a lady from Ontario. Perhaps he met her while visiting relatives in Ontario or met her when she was visiting friends or relatives in the Purves area. William appears to have been a successful farmer, as he then acquired the N 1/2 of 17-2-10 which was adjacent to the home quarter.

In 1909, William purchased the Hart Parr 30-60 for the sum of $4,000, which at the time was a significant amount of money. William would have also had to purchase a plow and a threshing machine to match the tractor. William used the tractor on his farm as well as performed custom threshing in the Purves area with the tractor. In 1912, following the passing of Lydia’s sister, Elizabeth Crawford, William and Lydia took in two of Elizabeth’s children, Ted and Edna Crawford, as Mr. Crawford was not able to take care of all of the six children he and Elizabeth had in total. While Mr. Crawford and the other four Crawford children remained in Ontario, the Smallacombes and the two Crawford children they took in, remained in close contact with the Crawfords. In 1929, William and Lydia moved to Pilot Mound to operate the John Deere Agency there. However, in 1930, Lydia passed away from heart troubles. In 1931,

William returned to the farm in the Purves area, which he operated until 1941 when he retired. He lived in Ontario from 1942 to 1945 and then returned to Pilot Mound to live with Edna Crawford, who had married Elmer Stemler of Pilot Mound. William Smallacombe passed away in 1958. In 1928, the Hart Parr 30-60 was sold by William Smallacombe and purchased by Herb Sims of the Snowflake, MB area. The 30-60 continued in service on the Sims farm. The tractor was parked in the 1940s, but Mr. Sims thought enough of the tractor that he refused to let it be scrapped during the Second World War. The tractor was donated to the Museum in the 1950s, and was one of the first gas engines in the collection. For many years the tractor participated in the steam outfit versus gasoline outfit threshing contest at the Museum’s annual Threshermen’s Reunion. The 30-60 remains in operating condition.

While there is a tank wagon in the photo, probably the tank contained kerosene fuel as the Hart Parr 30-60 was cooled with oil. As well as oil not freezing in cold weather, oil cooling also resulted in the engine running hotter than it would if it was cooled with water. This was a benefit when the tractor was burning kerosene as a fuel as the higher engine temperatures more thoroughly vaporized the kerosene as the fuel/air mixture was drawn into the engine cylinders. However, the pre-detonation of the fuel air mixture was a problem and the carburetor also injected a small amount of water into the fuel air mixture to prevent pre-detonation. It could well be that the tank wagon featured a multi compartment tank to hold kerosene and water, both of which would be consumed in the normal operation of the engine.

Five of the six business ideas pitched at last year ’s “What’s the Big Idea?” event won cash awards. (Left to right) Marilyn Crewe, EDO of Neepawa, was one of the event organizers. The entrepreneurs were Marlies Soltys of Minnedosa, Hali and Doug Finlay of Rapid City, Lisa Ballegeer of Rapid City, Darryn Cameron of Neepawa, and Joyce and Michael Rodericks of Riding Mountain. Vern May (right), EDO of Minnedosa, was the other event organizer. Continued from page 2 Thinking about pitching an idea but have no idea where to start? “We don’t just say come and show up. Entrepreneurs can come in ahead of time, we’ll help them with their pitch, the kinds of things the judges are going to be looking for,” Crewe said. Since last year’s event, the two EDOs have made some changes to the event.

Along with the actual pitches, there will be a ‘Lunch and Learn’. The lunch part is pretty clear, while the learning part is because this year, they’re bringing in a speaker to talk about how to use digital marketing to grow a business. As Crewe states, “This isn’t necessarily just targeted at those entrepreneurs that show up for the event, but it might be something that current business owners

would be interested in joining as well.” “If anybody is curious, whether they’re looking to open a business now, or maybe they’re in business, see the speakers we’ve got, come in for the event, it’s going to be applicable to a very wide audience,” May remarked. He stressed that, “Whether you’re making a pitch or you just want to come out and see what’s happening, it’s going to be

a very engaging day.” This year, the event has over $35,000 worth in awards and incentives, so if you have an idea for a business, now’s the time to get started. For more information, or to get some help on your pitch, contact Marilyn Crewe at 204-476-7607 or at, or contact Vern May at 204-867-3885 or edo@
