Roundabouts

Proposed as twinning alternative By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

Safer, cheaper, greener. The common European way of expediting traffic flow is becoming more popular in North America, and now Battleford may be the next jurisdiction to convert to roundabouts. After an announcement recently that the re-design of Highway 4 through Battleford town limits is not as high on the priority list as the town had been led to hope, another option has been brought to light. In a recent discussion with a Ministry of Highways safety expert on another is-

sue, the concept of using roundabouts, or traffic circles, instead of traffic signals and double laning the highway was brought up, say Battleford Mayor Chris Odishaw and Councillor Bill Halewich. Safety is one of the three main reasons roundabouts are constructed, the others being capacity and environmental benefits. In Battleford’s case, all three benefits fit the town’s ideals. Published data indicates roundabouts can reduce injury collisions by about 75 per cent compared to stop Please see ‘Roundabouts’ Page 2

An unwelcome, but not unexpected, spring snowstorm hit the Battlefords as warned over the weekend, clogging roads and knocking power out for a few. There were actually fewer outages than expected, says Larry Christie, spokesperson for SaskPower. It would have been worse if the snow had

been wetter. Throughout the region, there were reports of vehicles in the ditch, roads closed, and many travellers had to wait it out. Amber Hudson at Best Canadian Motor Inns in North Battleford says only a few rooms out of their 50 rooms weren’t full on the weekend. Many of those Please see ‘Hotels’ Page 2

A Final Blast of Winter?

A robin fluffs itself up against an unseasonal blast of winter cold. The familiar harbingers of spring were gathered in abundance along 95th Street Drive during the winter storm that hit the Battleford’s this past weekend.

Most semi-trailer units got the idea to park and sit out the storm Sunday night, but even trying to pull into the safety of the Humpty’s parking lot had bad consequences for this unlucky driver. Hogs on board could be heard moving around after the trailer slid off the road. Photos by Josh Schaefer

With more than 30 cm of snow falling in the Battlefords this past weekend, it was difficult for people to move around, causing deep footprints everywhere.

Hotels say travellers holed up in safety Continued from Front guests were travellers who had car trouble, had hit the ditch or who otherwise weren’t able to travel because of the storm, says Hudson. Thankfully, they were able to accommodate everyone who came in, she said. At the Super 8, Sunday

night saw more than twice the usual custom. General manager Tom Schwab says they usually rent out about 10 rooms on a Sunday night, but they had 29 rooms filled by people coming in off the highway. “They were pulling off the roads like crazy.” One customer, Schwab

said, counted 21 cars in the ditch between North Battleford and Saskatoon. It was a great learning experience for the new person on the desk, he added. The Tropical Inn was full, says manager Doris Binette, but that’s not unusual, especially with the rodeo on the weekend. She doesn’t be-

lieve they had to turn anyone away, however. The parking lot was full as well, as several large trucks had to wait until roads were safer. Even Tuesday morning, she said, they came back after trying it out, saying they weren’t going anywhere yet. The Gold Eagle Lodge was busier than usual as well, even

Roundabouts: efficient, safe, green Continued from Front control or traffic signals. Capacity is served by allowing the traffic to flow without stopping or bunching up, and the green mandate is served with fewer emissions It would also be cheaper, since it would remove the need for twinning the highway, and could probably be finished sooner than the design presently being reviewed. In addition, says Odishaw, the Ministry of Highways

doesn’t look after traffic lights. The original plan calls for traffic lights at 29th Street. In addition to the cost of roughly $800,000 per set, there is also the cost of training town staff in their operation and upkeep. What the safety expert suggested, said Odishaw at Monday night’s town council meeting, is to have a roundabout at 22nd Street — instead of a four way stop — and at 29th Street — instead of traffic signals. They would be somewhat

unique in being only single lane roundabouts, fed at four corners, since the need to twin the highway would be eliminated. It would also solve the issue of traffic from Highway 16 heading for the Riverbend area having to go all the way to 29th Street, instead of 35th, to get into town and then backtrack through residential streets. A roundabout at 29th would serve as a place to “u-turn” and head back to 35th. It would also mean access

to the industrial areas could remain the same. Odishaw pointed out, “We have GLM Tanks. We also have a house manufacturing facility looking at coming in. How do you move tanks and homes through an intersection with lights?” The town expects more information from the ministry, and will discuss it further. “If it’s going to save lives, save money, save the environment, save energy and everything else, why wouldn’t we look at it?”

taking calls on Friday night from people who couldn’t find rooms in Saskatoon. Some of the competitors in the weekend’s Kinsmen Rodeo were stormstayed elsewhere, affecting Sunday’s performance. Attendance was down that day, but good attendance Friday and Saturday will probably see rodeo-goers above last

year’s numbers despite the severe weather. RCMP had a relatively good weekend, says Sgt. Robert Lutzko of the Battlefords RCMP. There were few vehicle accidents for the conditions, he says. Environment Canada says it’s going to stay cool for the next several days, with more snow forecast for Saturday.

Man faces five charges By John Cairns Staff Reporter

A North Battleford man appeared in provincial court Monday facing five counts. Anthony Leonard Morin, 41, of North Battleford is charged with uttering a death threat, unlawful confinement, uttering a threat to cause serious bodily harm, assault and operating a motor vehicle in a dangerous manner. The charges cover a period between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30, 2007. The court set May 28 as the date for a bail hearing. Morin has been remanded in custody until then. A court order was also granted preventing Morin from having any contact with the alleged victims involved in the case. Due to a publication ban, no further details are available at this time.

Campbell Innes Way

Long awaited recognition for Fort saviour By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

For many years, the Battlefords North-West Historical Society has been lobbying for appropriate recognition for “the man who saved Fort Battleford,” and

now it seems they are making headway. Battleford town council is looking favourably at naming 10th Street, a new street in the Battle Springs residential subdivision, Campbell Innes Way, after receiving a request Monday from the so-

ciety. A motion was made to start the process, during which time public input can be considered. The Battlefords NorthWest Historical Society said in a letter to council that Heritage Canada will soon be

Victim services highlighted By John Cairns Staff Reporter

Battlefords Victim Services opened their doors to the community last Friday to help spread awareness of their organization and what they do in the community. Their offices at 1052-101st Street held an open house, where members of the public were able to drop by and meet staff members, chat with some RCMP officers who were on hand, and enjoy coffee and a supply of Tim Hortons products. “It was a chance for us to meet with members of the community,” said Jenni Schwab, assistant coordinator at Battlefords Victim Services. The event was held in con-

junction with National Victims of Crime Awareness Week which was just wrapping up. During the week, volunteers at victim services programs across Saskatchewan were honoured for their contributions to providing information and support to victims of crime. The open house ran from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday and about 25 people came through. Schwab said the event was one way for the local organization to renew their connections with organizations including North West Regional College, Interval House and other places and agencies they deal with on a regular basis. It was also a way for

Battlefords Victims Services to spread the message to potential clients about the broad scope of their mandate, which goes beyond helping victims of actual crimes. “There are some things not classified as a crime we can help with,” Schwab said, including dealing with alcohol and other abuse. This was a rare chance for the public to visit the organization. Normally Battlefords Victim Services does not do many open house events, but Schwab does say that potential volunteers with the organization are able to drop by and help out. “We do like to invite potential volunteers to come and meet with us and see if they fit in with what we do,” Schwab said.

recognizing Campbell Innes as an individual of “National Heritage Significance” — finally. “Surely the time is right for the Town of Battleford also to properly recognize the legacy of this very worthy Battleford citizen, historian, teacher, author, curator and community leader,” wrote the society’s president Gil Bellavance in a letter to council. Council members agreed 10th Street, as recommended by the society, was a good fit, since it would connect the

fort site to the highway and access to Government Ridge and is within that sight line as well. “May 24, 2008 will mark the 60th anniversary of the first formal recognition of our most valuable historical treasure (Fort Battleford), 24 years after it was abandoned,” says Bellavance in his letter. “On that day, after many years of unrelenting effort and perseverance, Campbell Innes finally saw the site fully restored and officially opened by the Governor General as the North

Tourism assoc. moves to Royal Bank Tower C of C resumes Visitor Centre operation Staff

The Battlefords Tourism and Convention association Inc. will be relocating from its three year home at the Chamber of Commerce building to the Royal Bank Tower May 1. A joint release prepared by the Chamber and Battlefords Tourism states recent growth of the two organizations has resulted in the need for more space for both. The move will also mean Battlefords Tourism will discontinue operating the Battlefords Visitor Information Centre after a one-year contract. The chamber will resume operating the centre April 30. A meeting of the directors of the chamber on March 18 resulted in the resolution to

terminate the two agreements with Battlefords Tourism for the lease of space and equipment at the chamber building, and the operation of the Visitor Information Centre. The release stated additional projects and staffing requirements, along with anticipated future needs, made it apparent that a decision needed to be made about the capacity of the current facility to continue to house both organizations. “Operating the Battlefords Visitor Information Centre has been a valuable experience but given current space constraints and the number of new tourism projects underway, there simply wasn’t sufficient room for both organizations in one building,” says Battlefords Tourism Chairperson Donna Challis. “Our

HOME GUIDE

“Where good people work together, miracles can happen,” said Adrienne Welter, representing the Light of Christ Catholic School Division Board last week when the students of Ecole Monseigneur Blaise Morand presented enough funds to the Knights of Columbus for the Wheelchair Foundation to buy 46 wheelchairs. On hand for the presentation, along with students Morgan Esquirol and Karlin Savoie Schmidt (showing off the wheelchair) were, left to right, Knight Paul Bruynooghe, district deputy for North Battleford; Rita Villeneuve, principal of EMBM; Adrienne Welter; Kathy McAllister, president of the parent council (the council matched the money school raised); EMBM teacher Connie Carignan; Knight Denis Carignan; Patricia DeSchryver and Marvin DeSchryver of Denzil, State Deputy of the Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus. Founded in 2000, the Wheelchair Foundation buys up to 10,000 wheelchairs a month, distributing them around the world to those who lack freedom of mobility. In 2003, the Knights of Columbus began a working relationship with the Wheelchair Foundation. For every donation of $75 the foundation receives, it provides matching funds to purchase a wheelchair for $150. Photo by Jayne Foster

West Mounted Police Memorial and Indian Museum, later to become Fort Battleford National Historic Site.” The society said that day would be an ideal date to honour his achievement. While the official process may not be finished by that time, council could still honour the intent of the naming on that date. Mindful they may be setting a precedent, council may also look at a policy for naming streets, and signage would probably indicate the designation of 10th Street as well.

mandate continues to be marketing the Battlefords, providing tourism research and policy, promoting tourism awareness and assisting in providing tourism industry training.” Chamber of Commerce President Patti Acaster says, “For over 100 years, the chamber has worked to promote the community, its businesses, attractions and amenities. The Visitor Information Centre plays an important role in the community and we are pleased to continue the strong relationship with the city of North Battleford and town of Battleford for its operations.” Visitor information services have operated at the chamber location for more than 30 years.

Editorial

Climate change makes slow progress in NW Canadians, prairie dwellers in particular, are known for their obsession with the weather. After the meteorological events of this past weekend and early this week, it isn’t hard to figure out why that weather based obsession often translates into a skeptical view of dire predictions about global warming. That the syntax has recently changed to “climate change” isn’t a ruse that gets past the wily prairie weather observer. Call it warming, call it change, in the context of geological time our current predicament seems to be “same old, same old.” We live in a region where winter is quick to descend and reluctant to leave. A few weeks on either side of perceived “norms” don’t seem to lend much credence to the teeth gnashing of climate change proponents. As Northwest cattle producers struggle to care for their animals under current conditions, and grain farmers look wistfully at fields which, at this time last week, were almost ready for spring work to begin, prairie dwellers can be forgiven for their skepticism. Ironically this little poke at climate change and global warming is being written on Earth Day, April 22. It’s a day set aside to raise awareness of what man’s activities are doing to the environment, but, as we look out at the havoc Mother Nature has wrought in our corner of the planet, it’s a little difficult to work up any warm and fuzzy emotions. Just ask the freezing juncos huddled on the windowsill trying to capture a little warmth. Mother Nature told them it was time to return to this harsh place. Seems she’s having the last laugh. The folly of our skepticism may eventually come back to bite us, but in the meantime prairie folk merely dig out, slip their vehicles into 4WD or hyper careful driving modes and carry on. Inside their heavy cloaks of stoicism they can also be forgiven for casting a hopeful glance at the sky, searching for some global warming and willing it to return to the landscape. — Becky Doig, Editor

What happened to transparency? Dear Editor What do Canadians have a right to know in regards to Canada’s role in Afghanistan? Is the Harper Conservative government attempting to keep Canadians in the dark? The issue of Afghan detainees may turn out to be an issue that will reveal the answers to these questions. Last month Parliament passed a resolution wherein Canadians right-to-know was explicit with respect to Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan and specifically the handling of detainees by Canadian troops. This intent of Parliament seems now to be less clear. The Military Police Complaints Commission has argued the Conservative government has been less than cooperative over the issue of detainees. Subsequently, last month the chair of the complaints commission, Peter A. Tinsley ordered an estimated $2 million public hearing into the matter, which will provide the commission with more power to efficiently investigate the matter of detainees. The defence minister, Peter Mackay, was quoted as saying, “the commission will get the co-operation with respect both to information disclosures and the funding necessary to have a full-blown hearing if this is the direction in which it (the commission) intends to go.” Apparently, the government has had a change of heart on this issue as they are now attempting to block the public investigation by the Military Police Complaints Commission. The Harper government has filed a notice of judicial

review in Federal Court to put a stop to the planned public hearing by the Military Police Complaints Commission into allegations of abuse of detainees in Afghanistan. So is this a jurisdictional argument by the government or are they really trying to keep Canadians in the dark on the issue? One thing is clear! Canadians should have a right to know and should never be kept in the dark by their own government. Finally, what happened to Stephen Harper’s promises of a transparent and accountable government?

Ouch! Safety snafu a textbook case What a dumb move. I feel like such an idiot. I’m standing in my back yard. The sun is just about to go down. A much-talked about storm has just started to blow it and, here I am, standing on one foot, with a nail in my other foot. It went right through the sole of my shoe, and just enough into my foot to justify a tetanus shot. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Several years ago, a wooden grain elevator was demolished in Battleford. I salvaged a whole bunch of lumber, hoping to use it to rebuild my deck. It never did pan out.

Over the years I was basically one of those guys that drives everyone nuts. I always wore my seatbelt, no matter what. I even wore it in my excavator. I always wore my hardhat. I never cut corners on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or any safety measure. Anal would be a good description when it came to safety. My blood pressure would boil when I worked with idiots who didn’t give a rat’s behind about safety. On one job, I came home each day for three weeks to tell my wife I had nearly killed one particular labourer. No matter what we did, he always put himself in the exact wrong spot. I had visions of him smeared across the backside of my

bucket. A rusty nail in the foot isn’t that big a deal, but the principle of the thing is what bugs me. It happened just as the safety guys always say – the end of the day, a last minute project, inclement weather, mind wandering off the job, light getting dark and, most importantly, the one time you skip the personal protective equipment. That’s when you get bit in the rear, or in this case, the foot. Lesson learned. — Brian Zinchuk is a reporter with Pipeline News. He can be reached at brian.zinchuk@sasktel.net

From The Top of The Pile By Brian Zinchuk Scrap lumber makes for a crappy deck. So over the next several years I laboured over this massive, unsightly pile of lumber, cutting it into 16-inch lengths for the wood stove. Many reciprocating saw demolition blades gave their lives in chewing through this pile. Each time I tackled the old 2x4s and 2x6s, I would dutifully don my gloves and steel-toed boots. Safety glasses went over the spectacles. I might have even worn a hard hat in my own back yard. I’m that anal about safety. There were only a few pieces of lumber left on this day. I was literally about to cut up the last piece of this god forsaken pile when I stepped on a rusty nail. I had my gloves and safety glasses on, but no boots. I had left them in the car. It was only going to be an hour, I figured. It’s the last of the pile. It was probably the only time I had not worn my steeltoed boots on this little project. Two hours later, I’m walking out of the emergency room, arm smarting from the intramuscular shot. “When was the last time you had a tetanus shot?” the doctor asks. “Twelve years ago,” I say. A dozen years earlier, I was three weeks into my first pipeline job, working as an oiler on a machine the devil himself would have thought too dastardly to create. It was a Barber Green TA-77 wheel ditcher, and I was the lowly new guy as its oiler. I had worked on my dad’s farm before, but this was my first oil patch job. The damned thing went through 10 tubes of grease a day, by hand. In a month I lost 15 pounds and had arms you could flint steel off of. Ironically, that’s exactly what happened. We were changing teeth on this beast when a chunk of carbide steel ended up lodged in my arm. I was never good as swinging a sledgehammer, so another oiler swung while I helped. A piece flew off, and an hour later, the “band-aid” was taken off so I could get a shot in the arm.

An amazing streak of good luck Saskatchewan Party Premier Brad Wall must have done something right in this life or a past one. How else do you explain the tremendous good fortune that’s shone down on his government during its first five months in office? Admittedly, it may be a bit premature to declare Saskatchewan has turned a corner. Our slight up tick in population (which mostly reflects the last few months of former NDP premier Lorne Calvert’s regime) and job growth numbers (which — while solid — aren’t spectacular) don’t yet suggest a long term trend. Given what we’re seeing in other critical economic indicators — things like retail and house sales, income tax revenue and especially resource sales — it’s clear Wall has, so far, been a very lucky man. Take the latest good news on land sales — even better than $112 a barrel oil and even better than the vast reserves discovered in the Bakken Play in southeast corner of the province. Energy Minister Bill Boyd announced recently a staggering $265-million in Crown petroleum and natural gas drilling rights for the second such sale in 2008. The figure topped the previous record of $197 million that was set just last February — also during Wall’s short tenure as premier. And that record sale actually shattered the previous record of $85 million that had stood for 14 years. Together, the February and April sales amount to an 80per-cent increase from the total drilling rights sales in all of 2007! Of course, Sask. Party supporters argue that far more than luck is in play.

They argue the businesses sector in general and the oil industry specifically are simply responding to the long awaited change to a right wing, business-oriented government. While Tommy Douglas’s social democratic government drove the oil companies out, Brad Wall’s conservative Saskatchewan Party government is bringing them back home, they proclaim. However, two points likely need to be considered.

The Provincial Scene By Murray Mandryk First, if any politician is responsible for the change, it isn’t likely the departing social democratic premier Lorne Calvert. It’s more likely another conservative politician — Alberta Conservative Premier Ed Stelmach. The Alberta premier has vowed to take an extra $1.4-billlion from the oil industry by next year. This may also partially explain why the average value of the land sales in Saskatchewan is $2,622 per hectare compared with $357 per hectare in Alberta this year.

The second noteworthy thing is that the new Sask. Party government simply hasn’t done a single thing to change the oil royalty structure put into place by the NDP. Again, supporters would argue Boyd and Enterprise and Innovation Minister Lyle Stewart have sent out the right signal by saying there is no plan to hike oil royalties in the foreseeable future. Certainly, this has been a welcome indicator to the oil sector and likely a wise strategy. However, not everyone is quite so enamoured with either the new government’s newfound wealth or bravado surrounding it. While business and oil is doing great, schools and municipalities are hiking property taxes to make up for what they see as underfunding in the March provincial budget. Moreover, everyone from trustees to the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities have expressed their annoyance over the new Education Act changes that provides neither the authority nor the money to do anything other than delay inevitable rural school closures. It’s hard to see how this is good policy. Although most politicians would never admit it, they would all prefer to be lucky than good. And this record oil lease sale — coming a month after the provincial budget — is an amazing stroke of lucky timing for Wall. It’s allowing Wall to make up for the shortcomings in his own March budget by now giving municipalities a cash injection just as they are about to hike property taxes. So far, luck has clearly been on Wall’s side. — Murray Mandryk of the Leader Post is a veteran observer of the Saskatchewan political scene.

Chamber likes flavour of first Taste of Culture By Jayne Foster Staff Reporter

THREE CAR CRASH The bad weather was partly to blame for a three car collision at the corner of 100th Street and 13th Avenue around 7:28 p.m on Monday. According to the RCMP, one of the vehicles failed to come to a complete stop at a red light due to the icy road conditions. That vehicle collided with a second vehicle, which then hit a third. The vehicles involved suffered severe damage and two vehicle occupants suffered minor, undetermined injuries. Photo by John Cairns

Directors of the Battlefords Chamber of Commerce are happy with the first A Taste of Culture, an expo of ethnic information and goods held in conjunction with the Agricultural Society’s annual Agri-Mex earlier this month. Meetings are already scheduled to look at the successes of this year and make expanded plans for next year’s event. A Taste of Culture went over so well, in fact, said Rob Rongve at an April 15 chamber directors meeting, that some booths even ran out of food because attendance was higher than expected. Director Bill Volk said it appears the numbers at Agri-

Taste of Culture, a new feature at this year’s Agrimex, featured food and entertainment from Battlefords immigrant groups. Photo by Brian Zinchuk Mex were up by 25 to 30 per cent over last year, and that those increases can be partially attributed to A Taste of Culture. Meanwhile, the chamber

has finally seen some numbers which confirm the Battlefords significant role in welcoming immigrants to Saskatchewan. Executive director Linda Machniak, who attended an immigration forum in Saskatoon recently, says there are finally some numbers available from the provincial level. There have always been questions about the numbers of immigrants who have come to the area, said Machniak, and new information has her feeling confident the Battlefords are significantly farther ahead than other comparable centres. The numbers take the form of percentages of the overall Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program destinations. From 2005 to 2007, said Machniak, the Battlefords was the destination for 4.2 per cent of nominees, third on the top 10 list and double that of the nearest community of comparable size. “We all know, I think, and had a sense that that was happening, but hadn’t actually seen any numbers.� Saskatoon and Regina, of course, were the leaders at 38.1 and 42.1 per cent respectively, however Machniak noted those communities have full time Open Door Societies. Machniak said, “I felt really confident that a lot of the things that were discussed [at the forum] are things the committee has already addressed and things we are already working on.� The Battlefords will be represented at another upcoming immigration meeting by the Chamber’s immigration co-ordinator Kathy McNinch. According to Rongve, the meeting will cover settlement issues, and McNinch will be the representative for Saskatchewan on a three-province panel. Contacts have been made with federal authorities as well, said Machniak, and they also seem to have confidence in how the Battlefords is handling immigration.

Pope encourages young people to carry the torch for organ donations

Friday, April 25

Staff Reporter

Twelve years ago, with literally two days left to live, George Marcello’s life was saved by a liver transplant, and he didn’t understand why anyone should have to die for need of an organ. Since then, the Toronto resident (when he’s home) has been working to raise awareness of the need for people to become organ donors. He has sought out youth to carry the torch, literally, after it was blessed seven years ago by the late Pope John Paul II, who also told Marcello to pass it on to young people. Marcello was excited to arrive in North Battleford last Thursday with the Torch of Life, where, for the first time, a school carrying Pope John Paul II’s name has participated in the Torch of Life Relay. The torch set out from City Hall and was run by students from John Paul II Collegiate and Sakewew High School from there to JPII. There, Marcello told students how he had received a phone call asking him to come to Rome because the Pope wanted to bless the torch. Marcello said Pope John Paul II called tissue and organ donation “a genuine act of love” and encouraged the whole world to become organ donors. The torch has been in many ceremonies, said Marcello, including aboriginal ceremonies, and millions have touched it, from Muslims to Jewish rabbis — all with a common theme to save lives. Marcello also called for a prayer for family members of one of the torch runners that day, Jamie Arcand, a Grade 12 student at Sakewew High School. His cousin, Jeanine

The Torch for Life passed through North Battleford last week on a campaign to raise awareness of the need for tissue and organ donors. Pictured standing are Cst. Jonathan Coote and Staff Sgt. Link of the RCMP, who escorted the run from City Hall to John Paul II Collegiate, grade 9 JPII student Kaylene McQuaid, Mayor Julian Sadlowski, and Sakewew High School students Eagle Iron, grade 10, Neana Louis, grade 11, and Taylor Jimmy, grade 11. Holding the banners are Meghan Mercer and Lindsay Martel, representing the JPII Key Club. Photo by Jayne Foster Arcand, an 18-year-old Grade 12 JPII student has been going to Saskatoon two or three times a week for kidney dialysis. John Paul II has been holding fundraisers to help the Arcands with travel expenses, says principal George Thompson. These events not only raise funds, but awareness, too, he says. Thompson was also able to present some money to Marcello himself, to defray some of his personal expenses, on behalf of JPII Collegiate and Sakewew High School. When he’s on a campaign — and this is his sixth in the last 10 years — Marcello doesn’t always know where his next meal or bed will come from. Nor does he have time to raise funds. The awareness aspect of the Torch of Life is priority for him. The relay doesn’t have huge sponsorship or any government funding (Marcello

mortgaged his house to get started), but he carries on with the help of the participants and generosity of the communities he visits. He has set foot in over 500 Canadian communities, and millions of hands have touched the torch on its journeys — one of which was a two and a half year campaign across Canada, and one across Europe. This current campaign is entitled SOS4000, recognizing that there are almost 4,000 people in Canada waiting for organ and tissue transplants.

New PI Lodge hosts Miller Troupe By Danica Lorer Freelance Reporter

MAIDSTONE — The multi-purpose area at the new Pine Island Lodge wing of the Maidstone Health Complex has proven to be a perfect area to stage a musical. Wednesday, April 16, The Miller Performing Arts Troupe presented their musical the The Riddledums at the Ritz. With lots of room to tap dance and act the group of six siblings put on another great show. The community of Maidstone is no stranger to these talented young people, who have performed many of their shows in town. The Millers are from Paradise Hill but have performed across the country. They share their talents on the stage and as instructors of music, dance and gymnastics. Throughout April they have been touring two different shows, The Riddledums at the Ritz and The Pirate Cats.

Yee-haw, rodeo excites capacity crowd By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

Strap your hand in, lock your feet to the animals side, give a head nod and hang on for the longest eight seconds of your life. That is what dozens of cowboys did this past weekend during the 38th Annual North Battleford Kinsmen Indoor Rodeo. The volunteer effort of the Kinsmen Club was rewarded with a great stock of animals, great cowboys and cowgirls and great attendance by the community. “We rocked the rink,” said Kinsmen house committee member Justin Wappel. The numbers and money raised from the event are not yet tallied, but Friday the arena was at capacity, which is around 2,200 and the other two days were well attended, despite the weather. The bull riding event, which is always a crowd favourite, saw 15 bulls conquered over the weekend between both the junior and senior bull riding events. Kory Ginnis of Grenfell, rode a bull named All Horned Up for an 84 point ride on Sunday afternoon and the bull riding title. Dakota Buttar of Kindersley won the junior bull riding event with a 78 point ride. Dustin McPhee, of Hanley won bareback with a 78 point ride in the first ride of the rodeo on Friday. The saddle bronc was won by Mark O’Dempsey, a native of Australia, with a 77 point ride. Dustin Walker of Vanscoy won the steer wrestling competition, a sport where the cowboys have to have guts and be a bit crazy too. Jumping off a speeding horse onto

a long-horned steer and wrestling it to the ground in less than five seconds isn’t for everyone. Darrell Taypotat from Broadview won the calf roping event with a 10 second time on Friday night. Kevin Turner and Kyle Chappel won the Team Roping event with a time of 5.9 seconds on Sunday. Finally the event with the most contestants, ladies barrel racing, which is often decided by a thousandth of a second, was won by JanetLynn Moen of Stewart Valley. Besides the great rodeo action, the other entertainment worth the admission price was rodeo clown and barrelman Dennis Halstead.

He has won the Canadian Entertainer of the Year twice, and proved why as he had the crowd laughing and excited between all eight events. “This is one of the smallest rodeos he does, but he loves the crowd and the committee here and always wants to come back,” said Wappel. “He is the best in Canada, and you don’t have to go to the Calgary Stampede to see him.” Without the countless hours of volunteer work and all the sponsors, this year’s Kinsmen Rodeo would not be a success. “Without volunteers we couldn’t do anything,” said Wappel. The Kinsmen send out a huge thanks to all the volun-

teers and sponsors of the event. One new sponsor at the rodeo included Glen Kemp, who had a new roping device on display in the lobby over the weekend. Kemp donated one Fast Back Roper, a practice roping entertainment device, which he has developed over the past year, for a raffle, with all the money raised given back to the Kinsmen. The steer shaped unit allows a roper to throw a lasso over it then the rope will slide between the base and the head and can be pulled back without having to go back and loosen the rope. Kemp raised $501 on the raffle. He will have the new technology available soon at Austin’s Saddlery.

Photos by Trent Cey Other volunteers that are a big part of the weekend include rodeo queen nominees. Morgan Ellis, Tiffany Brown, Kearstin Ganye and Mallory Sittler were the four candidates who sold tickets and promoted the rodeo.

Sittler, who lives on a farm near Wilkie, was named the 2008 Kinsmen Rodeo Queen. Her crown was determined by ticket sales, attitude, public speaking and horsemanship, among other criteria.

New coach heads north to pull Stars into the playoffs By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

The Battlefords North Stars have a new leader behind the bench, as Ken Pearson accepted the position as head coach and general manager last week. Pearson brings with him 14 years of junior coaching experience. Over the last four years, he served as the director of hockey operations and coach of the Winnipeg South Blues of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. In his four seasons with the Blues, Pearson has not missed the playoffs and won the MJHL championship in 2006. Pearson was an assistant coach of the Canada West

team which won gold at the 2006 World Junior A Championship. He was a co-coach at the 2007-08 Canadian Junior A Hockey League Prospects Game. Along with MJHL experience with the Blues he also was on the coaching staff in Winkler, with the Flyers. He spent a brief time in the Alberta Junior Hockey League with Brooks and was a finalist for Junior A Coach of the Year four times. Pearson was also an assistant coach with the Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL for a short period and now has a new challenge in the SJHL. “Ken is well respected in the hockey community,” says Greg Gryba, the team’s president. Pearson’s experience is

what the North Stars are most happy about, especially what

years around junior hockey, on average, he sends four to

he will bring to the general manager’s position. Pearson has developed a reputation as a great recruiter. Over his 14

five players away on scholarships after each season. “I am pretty excited and really looking forward to the

new challenge,” said Pearson. “I will be up there soon to talk to the staff and players, and I hope to get things started then and get this team back in the playoffs.” After an embarrassing season with 5 wins, 15 fewer than any other team in the league, Pearson believes the North Stars can bounce back. “We will need better depth, get stronger up front and simply develop more skill to score more,” says Pearson after talking with Blair Atcheynum, whom he plans to keep on as an assistant coach. The team’s leading scorer, Shawn McNulty, finished with only 24 points in 56 games, a number the 200809 point leader should pass

under Pearson’s style of coaching. “It depends on what kind of team we get at camp, but I like to play an up-tempo style and have the defencemen step up and take chances,” says Pearson. “Up-tempo style hockey is a lot of fun to play,” says Rick Cey, the North Stars captain last season. “I am real excited to meet the new coach, and see what he is all about and what his plans are.” Pearson’s duties will officially start May 1, but the recruiting process is something that never turns off, as he is also a scout for the NHL Central Scouting Bureau and was watching the Junior B championship last weekend.

The best don’t rest The age old question in sports is rising again, like it does in every sport after every playoff round. Is too much rest going to be a problem? Teams that end a series over a week before their opponent always have the difficult task of going from neutral to full speed once they are back in action.

All six teams which advanced before Tuesday’s action won the first game of the series and were able to move onto the next round. In the past two NHL playoffs the teams that had fewer days rest between games have won 10 of 14 series’ from the conference semi-final to the Stanley Cup final. This is not suggesting

Locals attend Taekwondo Nationals By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

Early this month the local Taekwondo club sent four members to compete in the Junior Taekwondo Nationals in Calgary and the representatives faired well. Winners of the event on April 5 and 6 will be competing in Turkey at the Junior Worlds Taekwondo Championship in May. Danielle Halewich won a

silver medal in the sparring competition, Quinn Eberle also earned a silver in sparring. Brianna Spenst and Bruin Eberle were the other two competititors from the Kees Taekwondo Club. Early that weekend nine other members from the local club competed in another open tournament, also in Calgary. Matthew Dutton won gold in sparring and a silver in form in the boys 9-10 blue

belt division. Keeley-Shae Somers captured the gold in form and silver in sparring in the girls 9-10 red belt division. Erin Eberle won three bronze medals in all her events in the adult black belt division. She entered the sparring, form and weapon divisions. Denny Nixon earned gold in the 15-17 yellow belt division for form. Cody Somers, 6, won a

double bronze in both sparring and form. Noah Zanyk captured a double bronze in the boys 1112 blue belt division for sparring and form. Rachel Zanyk, 8, brought home a bronze in orange belt sparring competition. Damon Dutton scored a bronze in the boys 7-8 green belt division for form. The other competitor in the tournament was Morgan Lamontagne.

Cey What? By Trent Cey Last season, in the Major League Baseball playoffs, the Colorado Rockies were the prime example. They surfed the wave of momentum into the playoffs and carried a 21 wins in 22 games streak into the World Series. But that success may have led to their downfall as well, as they sat and waited for their opponent for nine days. The Boston Red Sox played in the World Series three days after they won the American League, and went on to dominate the Rockies. They won game one of the series 13-1 and never looked back after sweeping the Rockies. The CFL playoffs are another example of teams riding the moment. Winnipeg and Saskatchewan both played in the division semi-finals, then passed the two teams waiting in the division finals. Both won on the road and then battled it out in the Grey Cup. In the NHL, Pittsburgh last played on April 16 and will be in tough against their opponent, which will be fresh for game one, a pivotal game of the series.

teams try to stretch a series out just to get more games in. That will backfire nine times out of 10, but teams need to find a way to spend their breaks preparing to be as ready as the teams that just finished. Sure, practice and rest to heal injuries are important but that isn’t the same as playing in a game, which is the only way to stay mentally and physically sharp. Teams that come off the high of just finishing a long series and have momentum carrying into the next round are similar to stopping a 2,000 pound runaway bull with only a lasso and no horse; it’s nearly impossible and dangerous. Along with Pittsburgh, New York will have a long break with their last action on April 18. Colorado last played April 19, Detroit and Dallas finished the next day, Montreal closed out their series Monday and the final two teams played Tuesday night and are right back at it. Only time will tell if the trend continues; if rest fuels a team or slows it down.

Martin Smith’s last run at Allan Cup By Trent Cey Sports Reporter

With four Senior AAA provincial titles, a second place finish in four Allan Cup appearances, three Western Canadian Championships, the Battlefords North Stars’ all-time leader in points and goals, eight years of pro hockey in the United States and Europe, a member of Team Canada at the Nagano Cup, a five time leading scoring in three different hockey leagues along with three senior league championships, what else is there left for Martin Smith to do? Martin Smith plans to have this past season be the last of his senior hockey playing career. Now he will turn his attention, experience and hockey knowledge to coaching as an assistant coach of the Battlefords AAA Stars. Smith made his fourth appearance at the Allan Cup this year as a member of the Lloydminster Border Kings. Despite being the defending champs, the team viewed themselves as the underdogs going into the tournament. The Bentley Generals sent the defending champs away

with an early exit in the quarter final game as they ended the tournament with a one win, two loss record. “We saw ourselves as the fourth or fifth best team on paper,” said Smith. “The way we were going to beat teams was by outworking them. Losing to Bentley was disappointing simply because we worked real hard in that game and had a bad result after they got four powerplay goals.” Smith’s most memorable trip to the Allan Cup was with the Ministikwin Islanders after they combined with his Unity team. “To be able to go to Quebec after our teams combined and compete in the final was the best year for me at the Allan Cup,” said Smith. He looks forward to his new role as a coach of the AAA Stars and will also be coaching the Sask Can minor peewee team. Smith has done some coaching in the past as a player coach for numerous teams and an assistant with the North Stars, but is happy that he has the opportunity to give back to the sport, the same way people did for him when he was moving up the ranks, he said.

of year so the weather wasn’t always sunny, but the trip is always enjoyed by the Cunninghams. They took in three carnivals this year, also known as Mardi Gras, which featured spectacular floats and a European parade of champions. A few trips were made to Malaga to check on the digs at the Roman theatre. The theatre was discovered in the 1950s and dates back to the first century AD (Augustan Age). A part of it is constructed in the hillside. The Cunninghams said it was inspiring to sit in the Roman theatre with the Arabic building behind and the Christian cathedral in sight. They experienced three cultures in one sitting. They took weekly trips to the markets and to eat local fish, which was a treat. The Richard Curling Club held their annual bonspiel Feb. 22-24 with 13 rinks entered. Every rink earned a prize this year, but prizes for first went to the Dave Keyko

rink, which also included Dianne Keyko, Harlene Simmons of Hafford and Derek Murphy of Radisson. The second event was

won by the Glen Milman rink from Maymont. Team members were Heather Prescesky, Bobby Prescesky and Chandra Mohr.

Lawrence Weenie Cup

Little Black Bear wins championship By Lillian Blackstar Freelance Reporter

The Lawrence Weenie Cup Masters Hockey finals wrapped up on Sunday night, April 13, in a final showdown between Little Black Bear and the Onion Lake Border Chiefs. Little Black Bear dominated and the final score was 7 to 4. The eighth annual masters (35+) tournament was held at Don Ross Centre over the weekend of April 11, 12 and 13. Organizer Milton Tootoosis, son of the late Lawrence Weenie, was pleased with the turnout. “The calibre and level of players improved. We saw several rookies and former players from the senior hockey circuit and now they know they have a place to play,” said Tootoosis. Second place was awarded to the Onion Lake Border Chiefs and third to the Saskatchewan Indian team. MVP was Red Pheasant First Nation Chief Sheldon Wuttunee of the Little Black Bear team. “I feel honoured because

it was the Lawrence Weenie Cup. I’m very dedicated to the development of First Nation Sports,” said Wuttunee. The tournament was created by Milton Tootoosis in honour of his father. Lawrence Weenie passed away from cancer in 2000. Born in

“Now they know they have a place to play.” Organizer Milton Tootoosis Little Black Bear defeated Onion Lake Border Chiefs to earn the Lawrence Weenie Cup Championship.

Poundmaker in 1932, Weenie was often referred to as “the voice of Indian sports.” He was a public broadcaster for a wide range of events including regional and major national tournaments. Weenie was inducted into the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN) Sports Hall of Fame in the ‘builder’ category. Tootoosis anticipates next year’s tournament will be bigger and better and invites hockey players and fans to watch out for it next season. Further information on the Lawrence Weenie Cup can be viewed at www.lwchockey.ca.

Laughter good medicine for lodge fund By Danica Lorer Freelance Reporter

MAIDSTONE — Little by little and laugh by laugh the fundraising committee for Pine Island Lodge and the

Maidstone Integrated Health Complex are getting closer to reaching their goals. On Saturday, April12, the group hosted another successful and fun ladies’ night at the Maidstone Legion

Hall. It wasn’t a sell-out crowd but those in attendance were generous, purchasing tickets and chances on many of the items donated by businesses from throughout the entire region.

The supper was catered by the fundraising committee and the bar was once again staffed by brave husbands and sons. The evening’s entertainment was provided by the Don’t Mind Us improvisational comedy duo of Mark Schweighardt and Lee Bells. They have performed across Canada, on the CBC and on tour with Weird Al Yankovick. Both performers are originally from Humboldt. In their

day-to-day lives, Bells is a teacher in Watrous and Schweighardt is a morgue attendant in Saskatoon. They have been performing together for 19 years and called the crowd in Maidstone “As crazy as it gets!” Their particular style of comedy takes its cues from ideas shouted out by members of the audience and the pair quickly thinks on their feet to give the crowd exactly what they have asked for.

MAIDSTONE — A special guest speaker at the Maidstone Library last week offered insight into dealing with children with special needs and improving the focus and concentration of all children. Amanda Amundrud was a special education teacher in Calgary working in a high needs school when she started to develop her Blue Moon learning system. She has since compiled her findings and ideas into a book. The learning system she has developed includes the book, yoga and Tai Chi miniposters and a disc of music. She sells the package to educators and parents. She also works with schools and gives workshops to introduce her ideas and will help implement them into classrooms. Amundrud’s ideas require little effort and money and she has seen positive effects occur over and over again. She is currently living in the Hillmond area but has recently spent time in Calgary

Winter weather has returned with a fury. Some snow fell Friday and Saturday. Strong winds blew and eight to 10 inches of snow fell during Saturday night. The storm continued through Sunday and, Monday morning, there were still heavy clouds and strong winds. Travel has not been recommended. The birds, who arrived from the south, are having difficulty finding food and birds, such as the slatecoloured juncos, are here in flocks at the feeders. The robins look cold and hungry. I am told the bluebirds have been here for about a month and have begun nesting. I wonder how they are faring. Cathy and Chris Jacobs and daughter, Kaitlyn, of Salmon Arm, B.C. spent a few days last week with Cathy’s parents, Keith and Eileen Evans.

A powerful anchor in life’s stormy sea The telegraph was invented in 1837, making it possible to transmit messages along a wire. A few years later, a submarine cable joined London to Paris. Then in 1858, the first Transatlantic Cable was laid from Ireland to Newfoundland. Though information could be sent much more quickly than if it were carried by hand, the process was still painfully slow by today’s standards. When Queen Victoria sent the first official message to U.S. President Buchanan, it took about 18 hours just to get across the ocean. Then it had to be relayed from Newfoundland to Washington. Today, we have wireless satellite links that transmit not only dots and dashes, but a full range of sound and images. We can see what is happening on the other side of the world within seconds of the actual event. Christians, however, have a connection which puts even this to shame. When the Bible speaks of our hope of eternal life, it says, “This hope we have as an anchor for the soul . . . which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the Forerunner [Jesus] has entered for us.” (Heb. 6:1920) The Lord Jesus Christ,

seated on the Father’s throne in heaven, is like an anchor, with an unbreakable cable linking Him to us. That present reality,

firmly anchored there, by a spiritual bond from His heart to ours. Of the durability of that link, Paul writes, “I am persuaded that

male choir nearly 50 years ago. The song, since included in many hymn books, is My Anchor Holds. Consider the colourful imagery used by the writer. “Though the angry surges roll / On my tempest driven soul, / I am peaceful for I know, / Wildly though the winds may blow, / I’ve an anchor safe and sure, / That can evermore endure.”

Another verse adds, “I can feel the anchor fast / As I meet each sudden blast, / And the cable, though unseen, / Bears the heavy strain between; / Through the storms I safely ride, / Till the turning of the tide.” Truly, “the Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the sea.” (Ps. 93:4) If we, as believ-

ers, are beset by storms today, no matter how high the waves mount up, Christ, our hope’s anchor, remains sure and steadfast. As Martin declares in his refrain, “It holds, my anchor holds; / Blow your wildest then, O gale, / On my bark so small and frail; / By His grace I shall not fail, / For my anchor holds!”

described by the writer of Hebrews, is pictured in the Old Testament by the ministrations of Israel’s high priest in the holy of holies, on the Day of Atonement. Yet there is a dramatic difference. Only he was allowed to enter into the presence of God “behind the veil” in the tabernacle. He was there to represent the people. But Christ is much more than our representative in heaven. He is our “Forerunner,” a kind of advance scout, preparing the way for a long procession of pilgrims. He has gone on before, but we will follow. The Lord is, even now, preparing a place for us. (Jn. 14:2-3) Today, each believer is

neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 8:38-39). We are well and truly connected. In an instant, across that invisible cable, flow the prayers and praises of each child of God, and from Him the daily grace to sustain us in the struggles of life. These truths lie behind a gospel song, written by pastor and hymn writer William Clark Martin (1864-1914). As published in 1902, it was arranged for men’s voices. I sang a rousing version of it with a

Weather causes meeting postponement By Helena Pike Correspondent

The annual meeting of the Waseca Recreation Board and the Waseca Memorial Hall Board, which was to be held in the Waseca Hall Monday evening, was postponed because of the severe weather. Snowstorms have made driving difficult and dangerous. A new date for the meeting has not been set.

She received two cash awards and a scholarship from the Saskatchewan Lily Society. Since that time she

Hockey draft prizes awarded By Ashley Olson Correspondent

TURTLEFORD — Last fall 30 teams gathered at the Turtleford Community Centre for the first annual TCC Hockey Draft. Groups, businesses, investor groups and individuals paid $500 each for the right to own a franchise in the league. A draft was held to fill out each roster, with the smartest hockey minds in the country vying for stars that would lead their team to victory. Fourteen players per team were finally selected, then it was just a matter of waiting and watching as injuries mounted and the minors filled up with chosen players. First place was a fleeting moment for at least 10 teams. In the end the Redwings edged out the Flames by a single point to win the title, bragging rights and a cheque for $3,000. The Flames

settled for second and $2,000, followed closely by the Kings winning $1,000. In fourth place were the Devils who won $500. An exciting first season is over and TADRA appreciates the support of everyone who took part. Rick Starnes contributed his time to enter the teams on the Internet, so everyone could watch their team sink or swim. The Hurricanes franchise won the autographed Sidney Crosby All-Star Jersey and donated it back. Tickets for the jersey are now on sale at Diehl’s Den where the jersey is on display. The draw will be held at next year’s draft, which is tentatively set for Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Turtleford Community Centre. Get your group together. Carefully watch the playoffs, take notes and plan to being there next year. See you all at the draft. By Kim B. Miller

places, but returned to a farm south of Waseca in 1943, where David farmed with his father until 1967. He and his wife, Anne, remained on the farm. David attended Waseca School as a boy and later his children, Brenda, John and

Murray, also attended school in Waseca. David will be remembered here for his love of sports, especially baseball, at which he excelled, his devotion to his family and his faith. We extend sympathy to

COLE - Della May Cole was born on May 2, 1928 in Mansfield, England and passed away peacefully with her family at her side on Thursday, March 13, 2008 at age 79. She was the youngest of 2 girls born to Harold and Ethel Harrison. In April of 1949, at age 21, Mom came to Canada along with her mother, sister, brother-in-law and a 1 month old niece. Her father, Harold, who passed away just 6 weeks after becoming ill, died a month before they were to leave for Canada. Knowing he would not be making the trip with them, he had insisted that they go on as planned. So they did and settled in the Glaslyn district. Mom worked at Dart’s store for a couple of years then moved to Edam to work as a ward aide at the Lady Minto Hospital. It was a while working here that she met her love and life-long partner, Samuel Edward Cole. They were married on June 10, 1954 and settled on a homestead 5 miles west of Edam where they did some mixed farming and raised their 4 daughters. They lived in their small house for 24 years then Dad built a new one, 2 miles closer to Edam, which they moved into in 1978. It was here that Mom lived until her stroke in 2003. In January 2004, after several months of re-hab, Mom was moved into the nursing home in Edam where she lived out the remainder of her life. Mom is probably best known by many, for her English accent, her short stature, and her homemade pies, especially her Coconut Cream and Lemon Meringue pies. I’m sure there wasn’t many bake sales or fall suppers that didn’t see one of Mom’s pies. She was often teased about being short and her reply would always be “all good things come in small packages”. (Us girls would tell her “so does dynamite”). Mom’s English accent was also joked about in good fun and many of her family and friends would comically imitate her. She called everybody “Luv” and she was eventually nicknamed “Della Luv”. Mom was a very outgoing person and loved visiting with family and friends. Mom was also an avid bingo player, whether is was radio bingo or the weekly bingo’s in Edam. I don’t think there were many that she missed. When Edam no longer held their bingos, Mom would pick up a carload of ladies every week and head for Turtleford. Mom also took an active part in the community and was always ready and willing to help out at any event when asked. In 1970, with her children now older, Mom decided to enter the workforce to

earn a little money of her own. So she got a part-time job working for George and Mabel Valliere at the Rendezvous Hotel and remained there for the next 15+ years. Mom’s favourite pastimes were not the crafty sort, but instead, she enjoyed reading, jigsaw puzzles, Solitaire or doing crossword puzzles. When family and friends came visiting she loved to get into a game of cards or Yahtzee. Another pastime that she loved, was watching sports. The Toronto Maple Leafs was her all time favourite hockey team and remained loyal to them to the end. She became an avid fan of ALL the seasonal sports. Mom lived her life to the fullest and she loved her family and friends unconditionally. In 1977, Mom made her first of several trips back to her homeland to visit her family. (The same family that she had come to Canada with, had moved back to England in 1973). She made her last trip in March 2003. And though Mom’s stroke in September 2003 confined her to a wheelchair, she did not let this stop her from hiring the Handi-Van to take her out 3 times a week, to either do her banking, going to the grocery store, or meeting up with friends and family for coffee or a meal at the local café. Mom had her routine and kept to it faithfully, through the heat of summer or the cold of winter, up until the last couple months before her death. Mom, your journey on earth is over and we all must now continue on with ours, without you. We will miss you always, cry for you often, and forget you never! Della leaves to cherish her memory, her loving husband of 53 years, Samuel Cole; her 4 daughters: Jenny (Norman) Gunderson, Meadow Lake, SK; Anne (Ryan) Haughian, Battleford, SK; Donna (Ken) Weber, Battleford, SK; Susan (Robert) Anderson, Big River, SK; her 12 grandchildren: Holly (Norm) LaBrash, Blair Gunderson, Mark Gunderson, Sam Cole, Lee (Janice) Haughian, Sara Haughian (Cory Wallace), Brad Weber (Megan Payne), Curtis (Lori) Weber, Blaine Weber (Jenny Kramer), Brian Anderson, Michael Anderson, Shauna Anderson; her 6 greatgrandchildren: Kaitlyn, Brianna and Naithan LaBrash, Brody and Jordy Haughian and Seth Haughian; her niece Lynne (Bob) Willets, England. Della was predeceased by her parents: Harold and Ethel Harrison (England); her sister and brother-inlaw: Joyce and Bill Marshall (England). The Funeral Service was held on Monday, March 17, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. in the Edam/Vawn Playdium in Edam with Pastor Pat Ribey officiating. Organist Garry Gansauge. A special song sung by Garry and daughter Melanie Gansauge. The eulogy was given by Elaine Wouters. Candle Lighting by her 3 granddaughters. Active Pallbearers were her 9 grandsons. Honourary Pallbearers were all those whose lives she touched. Interment was at the Edam Cemetery in Edam, Saskatchewan. McCaw Funeral Service Ltd. was in charge of the arrangements. Card of Thanks We the family of the late Della Cole,

wish to express our sincere thanks to all our family and friends for the care and support we received in our recent time of loss. The kind words, hugs, cards, flowers, food, and the many deeds will not soon be forgotten. Thank you to Pastor Pat Ribey for the lovely service, to Garry Gansauge for playing the organ, to Elaine Wouters for doing a wonderful job of the eulogy, to Garry and Melanie, for singing the special song so beautifully, to the grandsons for being pallbearers, to the granddaughters for the lighting of the candles, and to the Edam ladies for preparing the lunch. We would like to give a big thank you to McCaws Funeral Service for the kindness and care you showed and most of all, for allowing us the honour to come in and lovingly prepare our Mom for her final resting place. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff of the LMHCC for the kindness and care you gave Mom during her stay in the nursing home. Many of you went above the call of duty to make Mom’s life more bearable and these deeds did not go unnoticed or unappreciated by Mom or her family. We will be forever grateful to you for these extra acts of kindness you gave Mom. Last, but not least, we would like to thank all the HandiVan drivers, with a special thanks to Elaine Wouters, for being at Mom’s beck and call when she needed you to pick her up in the Handi-Van and take her downtown. And, Elaine, we know she called you ‘bugger’ more times than ‘luv’ when you teased her or gave her a rough ride, but she enjoyed every minute of it. She loved you dearly and appreciated everything you did for her. Thanks Elaine, for making Mom’s life in a wheelchair more tolerable. With all our love, Sam Cole and daughters Jenny, Anne, Donna, Susan and their families

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Battlefords Funeral Service. For My Uncle Kenny Knowing you are almost gone, We look at you and tears start to fall. We see you now but, never to far. Close to you the Lord has called. Life will change with you not here. Time will stand but, never be cleared. Memories last more than you know. That is just how life goes. Seeing you set your spirit free. Is harder than we thought it would be. We will miss you now but, believe me You will always be the laughter with in thee. By Kimberley Coady You will be dearly missed but never forgotten

Checking in with Aida Turturro Weekday Early Morning By Jacqueline Cutler © Zap2it

Aida Turturro sat in the back of drama class in Manhattan’s I.S. 70, praying that the teacher would not call on her. One day her luck ran out. “I was scared out of my mind,” she says from her home in Montauk, N.Y., at the tip of Long Island. “I did an improv. And that day I got up and said, ‘I am going to be an actress.’ ” Yet as she was finishing intermediate school (as junior highs were known before they were middle schools), she tried for New York’s famed arts high schools; she didn’t make them. Clearly, though, she’s succeeded, as fans of “The Sopranos” know. Turturro, who has also done Broadway (“Chicago”) and movies (“Romance & Cigarettes”), is best known as Janice Soprano, sister to mob boss Tony and a strong woman in her own right. On “ER” Thursday, April 24, she continues her arc as Sheryl Hawkins, a mom of four, who arrives at County after an accident. Over the course of many surgeries, she and physician Neela (Parminder Nagra) bond. “She’s a lot more positive and a happy

person,” Turturro says of Sheryl. “She loves her life and her family and ... she never regrets anything. She just seems to be a happy person, and then things happen. She has something I don’t have — she tries to look at it in a very spiritual way. “You always knows what a person is when the hard stuff comes,” Turturro says. “She has a good heart and I like people with good hearts. Life is hard, and the world has gotten harder.” Turturro takes comfort in her friends, family, work and Buddy, her Labrador retriever. “I can’t imagine life without a dog,” she says. “My dog is probably the best thing that ever happened to me.” Hometown: New York. First time she remembers being onstage: A variety show in high school where did three characters: Roseanne Roseannadanna from “Saturday Night Live, “Marlene Dietrich and Shirley Temple. “From there,” Turturro says, “everything was downhill.” Other jobs: Cleaned houses and organized homes for 16 years. “I am an amazing organizer,” she says. Surprising admission: “I prefer helping organize homes more than I like acting,” she says. “This is what I like to see: the difference. You get really rewarded when you see people’s lives changed. When you open the closet, it is cleaned out.”

By Jay Bobbin © Zap2it : Will Tom Selleck film the remainder of the ‘‘Jesse Stone” mystery novels? —Trish Harrington, Weston, Texas : We don’t know about all of them, but so far, he’s been seen in four ‘‘Stone” movies on CBS. He filmed a fifth — ‘‘Jesse Stone: Thin Ice” — just after he started work on ‘‘Las Vegas” last year; at this writing, there was no word on when it would be shown. Selleck earned an Emmy Tom Selleck nomination for his previous round in the role, in last year’s ‘‘Jesse Stone: Sea Change.” : Please assure us that ‘‘Shark” has not been canceled. —Ann and Kris Kringel, Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. : It hasn’t, at least for now. James Woods’ lawyer drama returns to CBS in a new Tuesday slot April 29. The broadcast networks are slated to make their decisions about next season in May, so we’ll all know then whether ‘‘Shark” survives into a third year. We’d bet its ratings performance over the next month will be an extremely strong factor in determining that. : How do you pronounce Kaley Cuoco’s last name? —Michael Moyna, Denver : ‘‘Koo-WHOA-koh.” : Could you tell me if an actress named Lauren Stamile is currently playing a role on ‘‘Grey’s Anatomy”? —Jude Rossiter, Chicago

Q A

Q A

Q A

Q

: Yes, she’s being seen on the ABC drama A series as Rose, whose very apparent interest in ‘‘McDreamy” (Patrick Dempsey) has posed yet another hurdle to his possible romantic reunion with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). If executive producer Shonda Rhimes is to be taken at her word, though, Rose won’t be a long-lasting threat. : I was wondering if ‘‘Pushing Daisies” will be returning. —Sid Garrison, Glen Burnie. Md. : It will, but not until fall. With the very specialized style of the show, ABC evidently (and understandably) thought it best not to rush through the writing and production of episodes for the remainder of the current season. : I believe in the ’80s, there was a show about a young man (played by Timothy Van Patten) who drove around in a van and was taught some form of karate by a man he met (Lee Van Cleef). Any chance you could tell me the name of this series? —Diana Balash, Warren, Ohio : It was ‘‘The Master,” which aired on NBC for the better part of 1984. Incidentally, Van Patten went on to make a name for himself as one of series television’s most-sought directors, especially in the case of HBO programs such as ‘‘Sex and the City,” ‘‘The Wire” and ‘‘The Sopranos.” : Is Chuck Lorre — creator and executive producer of ‘‘Two and a Half Men” — related in any way to the late movie star Peter Lorre? —William Callahan, Delray Beach, Fla. : No, except for the fact that Chuck references Peter in No. 119 of his famous, ever-changing ‘‘vanity cards” that he uses as his production-company logo at the end of his series episodes. In that one, Lorre explains he was born Charles Michael Levine; you can find it on his Web site, www.chucklorre.com (what else?).

Students were invited to dress up as someone or something that ends in the letters “er.” Our school was full of lawyers, runners, tigers, singers, dancers and many others. During the Easter Break,the Maymont School Travel Club went to Costa Rica for 10 days. They experienced many activities such as snorkling, water rafting and kayaking. They spent a few days in a region where their hotel was right next door to an active volcano. They had time to spend at a waterfall where it took 417 steps to climb down and 417 steps to climb back up. During a two-hour nature walk where they saw monkeys, crabs, snakes, lizards, turtles and many other animals. Many of the hotels that they stayed at were nice and out in the country. The food was great and they had a lot of fun with the local people. Dr. Alec Courous from the University of Regina made a presentation to the Grades 712 students on Internet safety and cyberbullying.

Alberta is learning more about Allen Sapp thanks to a heritage school project, by a student from Olds, Alta. Hannah Fisher recently completed a school heritage project with Allen Sapp as her subject. Her parents brought her to the gallery in North Battleford March 15 where curator Dean Bauche and Donna Fuhr helped her with her research. Hannah’s completed project was judged at the school’s Heritage Fair. It has advanced to a regional competition in Red Deer. Photo submitted

Linda’s Lines By Linda Wegner I got the message twice today — once from Tim and once from Coco. In both cases it was directed to women and in both instances the message reinforced what I already believed (hey, who doesn’t like someone to tell you you’re right — twice in one day, to boot!) I read Coco Chanel’s comment this afternoon while browsing through an outdated magazine. “A woman with good shoes in never ugly,” it read. Smug with justification for being well-heeled, I found myself nodding in agreement. No one knows better than I do that I’m your average “mature woman” who has never been nominated for a beauty anything, but I’ve always worn shoes that are polished, in good repair and mostly, in style. According to Chanel’s definition, being less than lithe but neatly dressed and wearing good shoes puts me into the “never ugly” category. I like what Tim, actually Peter, said even more, though. In the second book he wrote, Peter noted it isn’t fancy clothes or expensive jewelry that makes a woman beautiful — it’s who she is inside that defines her. Tim, our pastor, expounded the writings of Peter, the Apostle, in one of the most sensitive ways I’ve heard in my decades of church going. I left feeling validated and . . . beautiful. There’s probably no topic that’s been abused more than that of “submission” and the role of women, but that’s far from my point in writing this. Here’s what I want to get across — the characteristics that make anyone beautiful (or handsome) are gender neutral, don’t go out of style and they can’t be purchased. “. . . To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness . . .” Those are free. The shoes you have to buy.
