We are a meaningful & relevant alternative. We are just like banks in many ways - we offer the same products and services (with convenient access), and we are open to everyone. The difference? We believe a financial institution should be worthy of your business; Weyburn Credit Union is run on principle - using our profits for your good - not our pockets.

If you’re grumpy & you know it - switch your bank! We take the heavy lifting out of switching banks; we’ll coordinate the transfer of your pre-authorized payments and direct deposits. Depending on the billing companies, it will take about four to six weeks. We understand it takes a bit of effort to change bank accounts so we really appreciate it. We promise it will be worth it!

Attention Homeowners: Imagine a durable, versatile and attractive patio cover, one that delivers shade on hot days, protects your family from harmful UV rays and keeps your deck and outdoor furniture dry during a rainstorm. Suncoast Enclosures will custom build your louvered roof as an addition to your home/business or as its own free-standing patio cover. Our built-in guttering system effectively channels away rain runoff to prevent flooding and structural damage. The louvers are charged by an efficient solar panel and are operated by a hand-held remote. Open the louvers slightly or up to a full 180 degrees to increase ventilation and control the amount of sunlight or shade on your patio. Suncoast Enclosures offers a screened-in outdoor area that allows you to enjoy your deck, pool, spa or patio without the sense of being enclosed in an indoor space.

The Benefits of Germanium Stones

Germanium plates found in the HELO LX


ermanium is a shiny, silverlooking metalloid. Every atom of germanium is made up of 32 electrons. Like carbon and silicon, germanium has four outer electrons that are ‘free’, meaning they lack the strong bonds that hold the inner electrons in place. This is what makes these three elements good semiconductors; it is also what is believed to be behind many of the health benefits attributed to germanium stones in bracelets. When germanium stones are worn next to the skin*, these free or unstable electrons are thought to attract excess electrons within the body. Due to the



many electronic and electrical devices that surround us in our daily life in the 21st century (televisions, mobile phones, computers, microwaves and many more), we are continually inundated by electrons, leaving our bodies with an excessive number of electrons. The removal of these excess electrons restores balance to the body.

While scientific studies have yet to prove the health benefits of wearing germanium stones, anecdotal evidence credits these beautiful bangles with many positive physical affects. These include relief from joint and muscle pain, improved blood circulation, reduced muscle stiffness, less fatigue and stress, decreased water retention and swelling, and increased oxygen levels.

In addition, germanium emits Far Infrared Rays (F.I.R.). These are harmless energy waves. When the F.I.R. emanating from a germanium bracelet resonates with the F.I.R. being emitted by the body, circulation is enhanced. This, in turn, stimulates cellular function.

*Germanium should never be ingested.

Weddings that Wow!

TOP TRENDS FOR 2017 By Tonya Lambert




From your food to your flowers to your face, the top wedding trend in 2017 is au naturel. Inspired by the growing green movement, the move towards a simpler way of life and Pantone’s colour selection for 2017 – greenery, today’s brides and grooms are being inspired by the natural environment. Expect to see lots of flowers and foliage, woods, stones and metals at this year’s weddings. Décor Details The wedding venues of 2017 will be filled with natural forms. Decorative accents on tables and walls will be products of the earth – wood, flowers, foliage, marble and metals. Potted plants are popular, especially large potted trees bringing the outdoors indoors. Garden-inspired florals and great bursts of greenery will be everywhere – foliage-filled table runners, canopies of flowers, garlands of greenery. Many couples are choosing to mix metals – rose gold, yellow gold, copper and silver - into their décor. This may include the cutlery and candlesticks, ribbons and runners. Subtle splashes of metal make any wedding look marvelous. Contemporary couples are often opting for socially- and environmentallyconscious choices when planning their special day. Printing invitations on recycled paper and using in-season and locallysourced flowers and foods are current trends. Gifting flowers and greenery to local nursing homes after the reception is another increasingly common occurrence.

Creative Cakes As with the décor, the cakes of 2017 are inspired by the natural world. Woodland-themed cakes will be common with icing modeled after tree trunks and garnishes of real flowers. There is also a move towards geology-inspired cakes: icing that looks like marble in the wedding’s theme colours; great gorgeous geodes

made with brightly-coloured sugar crystals; metallics, such as edible gold leaf, serving as everything from the base icing to tiny lace garnishes. Other brides and grooms take the movement towards a more natural cake in another direction, opting for a naked or semi-naked cake that reveals the many delicious layers of cake just waiting to be eaten. Some go a step further and incorporate organic jam fillings and toppings of fresh fruit or edible flowers. There is no end to the ways that the world of nature can inspire a creative couple and a talented decorator.

Hair, Makeup & The Dress Today’s blushing brides have moved away from the heavy makeup of yesteryear in favour of a more natural look. The brides of 2017 are opting for an enhanced everyday look with long lush lashes that really make the eyes pop in photographs. Braids, whether worn long down the back or tucked into an artistic updo, are popular in keeping with the trend towards simplicity and naturalness. Many brides are also choosing to incorporate accessories into their hairdos. Flowers are being woven into braids. Artfully placed brooches of glittering metals, colourful stones and lustrous pearls are all the rage. In keeping with the nature theme, today’s dresses favour 3D-embellishments of romantic floral details or wonderfully whispy feathers. Additional flowers or feathers tucked into an artful updo or bohemian braid bring the look together. Geodes and gemstones, marble and metals, flowers and foliage…the weddings of 2017 have been greatly influenced by our natural surroundings. A growing awareness of and appreciation for the environment coupled with this year’s greenery colour are just two of the reasons behind this delightful trend.





Custom Jewellery Design at York Jewellers

PHOTO ABOVE Ryan York, CAD/CAM Jewellery Designer LEFT TOP Finished rendering LEFT BOTTOM Rendering in progress

Jewellery is all about the experience. Whether you are designing or choosing, giving or getting, there is a special story behind every piece of jewellery. Perhaps it is a speciallydesigned necklace made from the gold in your grandma’s wedding ring. Maybe it is a carefullycrafted ring with the birthstones of each of your children. There are so many stories, and each of them is as unique as the people connected with the jewellery.




L-R Designs by Ryan, from Bridal to Extraordinary


or nearly 40 years, York Jewellers has been playing a part in many of these memorable tales. The store carries a wide assortment of rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings by such well-known designers as Giovanni Vacarro, Keith Jack, Shelley Purdy and many more. Their stately turnof-the-century oak cabinets also display quality watches, like Avi-8, Welder, Fossil and Citizen, together with a selection of cases to store and protect them when they are not being worn. York Jewellers now also provides customers with an advanced custom jewellery design studio and gemological appraisal services. Ryan York, CAD/CAM jewellery designer, and Raeghan Schmidt, graduate gemologist, trained in these specialized fields at the Gemological Institute of America and are now offering this ultimate combination of professional services right here in Weyburn.

“I’ve always been artistic and into designing things,” explains Ryan. “So, learning to design unique pieces of jewellery was a natural fit.” Whether you would like to redesign some existing jewellery, such as an heirloom piece, or want to start from scratch, Ryan and Raeghan can help make your ideas a reality. Ryan can suggest many different design ideas, explaining how a specific piece will be made, the strengths of various metals as well as how the stones will be placed to make it secure while giving it the best visual impact. Raeghan can explain the properties of different gemstones and how various cuts can change the appearance of a stone. “Raeghan can tell you literally anything about any stone,” says Ryan, “from where it comes from to its different aspects.” A gemologist like Raeghan is trained to identify and assess the value of

diamonds and other gemstones. For example, if you were to bring in a red gemstone for identification, Raeghan could tell you if it was a beryl, diamond, garnet, ruby or tourmaline. As prices vary greatly between various types of gemstones, knowing what you have or are acquiring can make a big difference. This is especially important from an insurance point-of-view: it ensures that you have a detailed description of the stone and know its worth in the event of an unfortunate loss. Once Ryan has a good idea of the design you want, he will use a special computer program to create a 3D Hi-Resolution rendering of it for your approval. Want to see what it would look like with a different stone or metal? No problem. Ryan can quickly make the change. Want to add a detail? Ryan can easily make the alterations. When the picture of your dream piece appears on the screen, Ryan

will talk with the manufacturer to obtain a quote for you. Once the price is agreed upon, work will begin on the next chapter in your story. Ryan’s designs range from classic to extraordinary, allowing your dreams to become a reality. “If you can think of it, it’s possible,” says Ryan. “Whether you know exactly what you want or just have the beginnings of an idea, I will work with you and within your budget to design a distinctive piece that will delight you.” The more information you share about yourself and/or the recipient of the jewellery, the easier it is for Ryan to create the perfect piece for you. If you have heirloom jewellery you would like to use, Ryan can incorporate the metal and stone into the new piece. He is also willing to answer any questions you may have about any aspect of the design and manufacturing process, from structural basics to architectural detailing. “I want the experience to be as enjoyable as possible,” says Ryan. Ryan is currently working on putting together two different collections. He hopes to unveil one line by Christmas and the other sometime next year. So, keep an eye out for the revelation of these lovely local collections. York Jewellers…enjoy the experience! York Jewellers 39 3rd Street 306.842.5484 Ametrine stone

What is Microneedling? Microneedling is using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible punctures in the top layer of skin. Those holes are actually therapeutic, since they cause a “micro-injury” that prompts skin to stimulate collagen production, filling fine lines and plumping the skin to contribute to a younger look.

Many creative and determined women have found ways to make careers out of their passions. More than ever, women own businesses and hold top positions in companies.

rooke Ward started ReFINEd Weyburn almost two years ago. Her passion for marketing led her to attend the Advertising and Public Relations Program in Lethbridge. Since obtaining her diploma, she has worked in many different areas of marketing, including online advertising, newspaper and magazine. “After working in different areas of marketing, I was introduced to magazine advertising, and I was excited to find what I believe is the best option for businesses to tell their story and highlight their products. Between shelf life, return on investment, readership and quality, I feel it is the best marketing solution for most businesses,” says Ward. Brooke had been working in the magazine publishing industry for six years, when there was an opportunity to start her own business, and ReFINEd Weyburn & Area Magazine was born. Brooke's sister Britany, who had been involved in magazine marketing, joined her as a marketing executive for Brooke's new business. Together, they created the first issue of ReFINEd in December 2015 with the cover feature being women of achievement. Monica Gilchrist joined the ReFINEd team in March 2016 while Britany was on maternity leave. Shortly after, Brooke found out she was expecting, due with her first child November 15th, 2016. Her winter issue went to print on November 16th and her daughter Brynn was born on November 25th. “I found it motivating to see the way women balance starting and raising a family while still running a business. Seeing these hardworking women gave me confidence that it was possible to pursue my other passion of becoming a mother,” explains Brooke. “I’m so fortunate to have an amazing team to allow me time with my family. Working from home has allowed me to start my latest venture, marketing the Helo LX through Wor(l)d Global Network. The Helo LX is one of the most advanced wearable technology products on the market.” “I think women have a lot of pressures in both their personal and professional lives,” says Britany Culham, marketing executive with Refined Weyburn. “It’s important to know you have a strong support team behind you.”

“I love that this feature brings focus to many of the amazing businesswomen in our community. It’s empowering to hear their stories and I hope it will inspire everyone to take the next step in pursuing their passions,” says Brooke. “It’s important for individuals to be confident and take pride in their profession, whatever that might be,” says Britany. “Women should be proud and excited about what they contribute to the workplace, not just as women, but as the individuals that they are.” “As a new mom of a daughter, this quote resonated with me, ‘Here’s to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.’ This feature brings awareness to the many successes that women achieve within the workplace. I believe celebrating all success is important and through our magazine we endeavour to celebrate and bring attention to the success stories of the businesses in our community,” concludes Brooke.

or over 25 years, Nancy McMahon CPA, CGA, worked at a large professional accounting firm in BC, rising to the position of partner. Two years ago, she decided to make a change. She loved her work as a CPA but as a partner in such a large firm, she felt removed from her clients. Rather, she wanted to be in a position where she could provide personalized service to business owners. “This personal relationship is necessary for the business owners to have greater direct access to their accounting professional,” explains Nancy. “It also provides them with confidence that they are not just another client but a valued friend and community member. This is why I chose to start my own professional practice.” Fortunately for the people of southern Saskatchewan, Nancy chose Weyburn as the place to open her firm. Nancy talks about the importance of family, staying motivated and being a business leader.

important to become a trusted leader and professional. When assisting clients through the maze of tax and accounting issues, it is important to dedicate yourself to the client’s needs and to be honest with them, at all times. This will make sure that the advice you provide gives your clients the tools they will need to make well-informed decisions.

How do you motivate yourself and stay motivated?

What is something people will be surprised to learn about you?

Clients always face challenges, and I enjoy providing my expertise to find a solution. I have always been the type of person that enjoys trying to solve any puzzle, and I have always stuck to it until I find a solution. It is very satisfying.

I have always surprised family and friends with my uncanny ability to out-shoot them. I am very competitive in this respect and have enjoyed target shooting for quite some time.

What inspires you to work hard each day? It is inspiring to have clients voice their satisfaction and appreciation for my work and assistance. The people from Weyburn and lower Saskatchewan areas are overwhelmingly friendly and have opened their arms to me and my staff. I am finding that as time goes by more of them are coming to me for their tax and accounting needs. I am very pleased with the response. What is one characteristic you believe every leader should possess?

Tell me about your family. What do you do for fun/relaxation/ leisure? It is important to have quality time with family. I believe it allows me to be a well-rounded person. My family has been very supportive and crucial to my success in my business. We enjoy motorcycle trail riding, target shooting and travelling. In the future, my family hopes to meet more area residents now that we call Saskatchewan home.

Kendra Johnson & Silver Rose By Tonya Lambert Photos by Vanessa Lanktree Photography





endra Johnson is a young woman with a bright future. At the age of only 22, Kendra purchased her own salon, Silver Rose. This summer, she undertook extensive renovations at the salon, completely redoing the interior. “My main goal was to restore the natural beauty of the building by enhancing the original concrete floor, creating brick feature walls and using live edge wood, gold accents and minimalist decor to add a modern look to the natural elements that had been hidden for so long,” explains Kendra proudly. “We also have new furniture: special comfortable chairs that offer better back support and reclining sinks with built-in headrests.” Kendra talks about the challenges and benefits of owning a business at such a young age, the habits needed to succeed and the plans she has for her salon’s future. What advice would you give young women to succeed in the workplace? Age is just a number! As long as you have the knowledge, passion and determination, you can succeed! People might question your abilities and have their doubts, but being a young business owner is one of the most rewarding opportunities you can give yourself and you can continue to grow your business for the rest of your life. What excites or interests you about your chosen field of business? Being able to get creative every day keeps my job exciting and fun! A hairstylist is responsible for much more than just making people look good, but also, more importantly, for helping them to feel good about themselves. That ability to give someone confidence is not something many jobs can offer, and I work hard to make everyone in the salon feel special. When I see their smiles, I am reminded about why I chose this career and am inspired to do more every day. What are your success habits? My success habits are very simple. I create a goal I want to achieve, set a deadline and make a list of the steps I need to do to get there. I remind myself that nothing comes overnight and anytime I have doubts I think back to my last big success and how I once thought it was unrealistic. Thinking one day at a time is much easier than always focusing on the big picture. Positive vibes and a strong work ethic will always bring you success! What would you say is your greatest professional accomplishment to date? My greatest professional accomplishment would have to be going from hair school to hairstylist to hairstyling instructor and salon owner within three years. I set huge goals for myself personally and professionally, and many people call me crazy but watching my goals and dreams turn into reality is the best reward for all the hard work and sacrifices it takes to get there!

TOP PHOTO Drake, Kaisen, Kendra and Landon

What is the number one business goal you plan to accomplish over the next year? My number one goal over the next year is to continue building an amazing team of stylists through ongoing education and support as well as strengthening and growing the reputation of the salon! We love what we do, and we want everyone who visits the salon to feel welcome and relaxed. We consider our clients and customers our friends and family and wouldn't be able to do what we do without them! Silver Rose Tanning & Hair Salon 150 Coteau Avenue | 306.842.4114




WHERE HAPPINESS FLOURISHES Tammy Lawrence-Bhimji & The Dance Zone By Tonya Lambert Photo by Vanessa Lanktree Photography




2017 Senior Contemporary Choreographer: Kaylee Geisbrecht


ammy Lawrence-Bhimji has always loved to dance. From when she took her first dance class at the age of four, it was evident that for her dancing was as natural and essential as breathing. “It is very true when you hear dancers say they don’t want to dance – they must dance,” says Tammy. “That was me from a very young age and, still today, I want to a part of the evolving world of dance.” When Tammy speaks of dance, her face glows and there is the sound of happiness in her voice. This is the feeling she hopes to pass on her students. “I have always told my dancers, that being a professional dancer is not my goal for each student,” she explains. “Happiness, success, confidence and most of all them knowing that someone is in their corner, on their side, is what I wish for each one of them.” Tammy’s lifelong goal was to own a dance studio. Tammy, who is an ADAPT-accredited jazz and tap teacher, an Acrobatique junior coach and a member of both CDTA, Saskatchewan Branch, Stage Division and Dance Saskatchewan, began teaching dance 16 years ago. Then, in 2005, she realized her dream, opening her own dance studio, The Dance Zone. “I knew running my own business would be hard,” says Tammy, “but I knew what kind of teacher I aimed to be, what kind of studio I wanted to create and what I wanted to offer my students. From there, I just set my mind to those goals and aimed for it.” “I am very lucky to have a supportive family,” continues Tammy. “Accepting help from others is key to running a successful business, especially as a mom and wife.” With the support of her family, Tammy was able to be the first studio in Weyburn to

offer ADAPT Syllabus classes and examinations. At the end of September, she will graduate from Rhythm Works - Integrative Dance Program with a certificate enabling her to work with children with sensory disorders such as ADHD and Autism – the only dance instructor in Saskatchewan registered to do so! Tammy’s goal is to bring this dance program into her studio, local daycares and schools. “Everyone should have the ability to take dance classes and I am so excited to give more children the opportunity and to take that journey with them,” she says. Before he passed away, Tammy’s grandfather gave her great advice – for life and business. “It doesn’t matter what other people think or say,” he said. “Know in your heart who you are and what you stand for and those who deserve to be in your life will be. When people walk out of your life – don’t chase them, God may be doing you a favor.” Tammy elaborates, “When you spend too much time trying to convince people why they should love your business, you miss the opportunities to be with the ones who already do. My dance families are the heartbeat of my studio”. ‘My biggest professional achievement is my dancers - not the awards or the recognitions but the children themselves,” says Tammy. “The legacy I hope to leave is that when someone says my name, someone says, “She was my dance teacher,” and they smile.

Her mother Evelyn, after whom her store is named, is a former model who always had an eye for style, a quality she passed on to her daughter. “Not only does my mom keep up with what is trending,” explains Pam, “she also has always had a knack of knowing what is coming around the corner in terms of style.” When Pam opened her store in February 2007, she chose to recognize her mother, whom she credits with supplying her with support and inspiration. “Lane is my mother’s maiden name,” says Pam. “Interestingly enough, my sister and I had written down the same name for the store on a piece of paper when we were miles apart and going over names on the phone!” Pam believes that passion for what you are doing is an essential ingredient to business success. “Love what you do!” she exclaims when asked what advice she has for other women considering starting their own business. She also stresses the need to thoroughly research the market and product or service, to seek advice from those in the industry and to find staff that believe in your business – something she has been very fortunate in. On a day-to-day basis, she has three amazing friends who offer innovative ideas and an abundance of support. Also, her three daughters (Morgan, Taylor and Rylee) are very involved when they are home.

needs, keep making changes to remain current and always be humble and appreciative.” Pam’s commitment to hard work and fashion extends from her store to her own jewellery line. Lane Designs features gemstone bracelets with therapeutic reminders as well as leather chokers. Exclusive to Evelyn Lane Ladies Wear, they are the perfect accompaniment to the exciting line of dresses, tops, tunics and pants by internationally-acclaimed Canadian designer Frank Lyman (which the ladies are wearing in the accompanying photos). Frank Lyman’s fall 2017 fashion line is a clever combination of romantic florals in rich jewel tones with urban patterns and strips in black and white. Look flirtatiously feminine this fall in a Frank Lyman dress; styles range from form-fitting to flowing. The collection’s smart separates can be kept casual or dressed up for a night out on the town. Expect to show off your shoulders with sexy slashes and straps. Elegant pleats are also to be found in abundance. To complete your outfit, Evelyn Lane Ladies Wear carries jewellery, handbags and footwear, including the popular Miz Mooz shoes from New York City.

“You have to commit to the hard work it takes to make a business successful,” says Pam. “Start-up can be overwhelming, but it does get easier once you become established if you remember to learn from your slip-ups, listen to your customers and anticipate their

hen it comes to advice about running a business, the first thing Christy Sanderson will point out to you is that there is no ‘I’ in success. “We succeed as a store because everybody that works here does their very best every day and is very knowledgeable in their area,” explains Christy. “Everyone gets along really well and helps each other out. Everyone cooperates and works together as a team. And that really is the reason why we are able to do what we do every day.” One of the reasons why the Old Fashion Foods team works together so well is because everyone has a common goal. “We are a health food store dedicated to helping people feel great!” says Christy. “Every staff member including myself wants nothing more than for our customers to be happy and healthy. Every week, we have customers come in to tell us how much we have helped them and how great they feel. This means everything to the staff because this is why we do what we do. We strive to ensure our customers are given the best advice possible, and in turn, we learn a lot from our customers. They keep us apprised of new products and that helps us stay relevant.” Christy purchased Old Fashion Foods two years ago. She is happy with her decision and enjoys going to work each day. If you have a passion for something and a drive to succeed, she encourages you to take the same leap of faith and start your own business. “If a young woman has a desire to start her own business or advance

in her current workplace then I would say go for it! Follow your heart but take your brain with you. Seek advice from as many successful people as you can find. They will expose you to a perspective you haven't thought of and cause you to question something you thought you already had figured out. I love this because it will set you up to succeed.” Christy also cautions potential entrepreneurs that running your own business requires taking risks, whether it is moving to a new location, introducing a new product or service or taking a chance on an employee. “I believe all leaders should be risk takers,” says Christy. “There is a sign that sits in my office that reads 'Go the extra mile; it’s never crowded.' I believe this to be true but to go the extra mile, there must be risk involved. Risk is an inherent part of business if one is to succeed and stand out.” Christy took a risk last year when she moved the store to a new location on Main Street. She also took a risk introducing to the store a home décor section with many items with inspirational messages thereby looking after the health of the spirit as well as the body. In the future, she will take many more risks, confident that with the ongoing support of her staff and customers, Old Fashion Foods will be able to provide more and more healthy living alternatives for the people of Weyburn and area.

Taking a Chance on Happiness


Four years ago, I took a chance, quit my job and began a journey. It has changed my life and my family’s life.


decided to start my own business. I put a plan on paper and I used it. Because of this, I have been able to grow and maintain my business. I stuck to the basic design, making alterations as needed. Over the last four years, I’ve had to make several adjustments to keep my business on track. As business increased, I had to hire employees. When I needed to cut expenses, I negotiated for better rent, cheaper copier rental and so on. A good business plan is flexible enough to allow you to meet challenges as they arise. Having a plan, mission, vision and sound bookkeeping principals helps to keep your business on track. When things aren’t going right, review your mission and financial situation. Perhaps you have been veering off course doing things to help other people that aren’t part of your mission. Perhaps you have not been watching your expenses closely enough. It is so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day aspects of running a business and forget to review the numbers. But the numbers are everything. If you cannot control your bottom line, you will be faced with a situation that could take significant time to correct. To avoid this, the best practice is to have your bookkeeping up-to-date to within three months or the last quarter. I am thankful every day that I work with such fantastic clients. Thank you for four fantastic years in business. Here’s to many more!

In bowl, first beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla. Next, beat in flour, baking powder and salt. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Working with one-quarter of the dough at a time and keeping the remaining dough refrigerated, roll heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into a finger shape for each cookie. Press almond firmly into one end for nail. Squeeze in centre to create knuckle shape; using a paring knife, make slashes in several places to form a knuckle. Place on lightly greased baking sheets; bake in 325°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pale golden. Let cool for 3 minutes. Lift up almond; squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed and press almond back into place, so gel oozes out from underneath. Remove from baking sheets; let cool on racks. Repeat with remaining dough. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.


& Apple bites

Cut bananas in half and sprinkle them with lemon juice if they are going to be out for a while. Push chocolate chips into the banana for eyes and a nose. Slice apples in quarters, and cut out a middle quarter out of each one. Sprinkle with lemon juice to keep apples from turning brown. Put a spoonful of peanut butter, almond butter or jam in the space to form the mouth. Shape marshmallows to look like teeth and insert with a toothpick, add other marshmallows to decorate. If you prefer almonds, insert them instead of marshmallows for teeth. RECIPES






My Top 5 Must-Haves

all is by far my favourite season of the year! The milder (but not freezing) temperatures, the gorgeous colours of the leaves changing, the beginning (and also the end) of harvest and my personal favourite reason: fall fashion. I can never get enough of all the sweaters, scarves, boots... there are so many fabulous items to include in your fall wardrobe, which is why I wanted to compile a list of my top five fall item must-haves for you. Let's get to it!

Ankle Boots I’m such a fan of booties! I love how you can easily style them with skinny jeans, tights or dresses. I also like them because they look proportionate to pretty much any body type/height. My favourite time to wear booties is in the fall - before the snow falls! There are so many great styles of ankle boots out there. My recommendation (if you’re only going to be getting one pair) is to buy booties that are neutral in colour (blacks, browns, greys) and invest in a pair that is good quality!




Layering Sweaters Oversized sweaters are a big trend this year. My favourite ways to wear oversized sweaters is slightly tucked in to the front of my favourite jeans or layered over top of a collared shirt like I’m wearing in the picture! Any trend that allows me to hide the copious amounts of turkey and mashed potatoes I plan to consume at Thanksgiving is okay by me!

Vests I personally have been on the vest train for awhile now. I own three and have to constantly convince myself I probably don’t need any more! If you haven’t tried out this trend yet, don’t worry there’s still time! Puffer, utility, fur, long - they’re all fantastic! I think this trend continues to be popular because they look so flattering and are practical for when the weather gets cooler. My go-to style in the fall is leggings, a long plaid shirt, a vest and rain boots.

Long Cardigans Similar to vests, cardigans are another seasonal favourite of mine due to the flattering shape they give all body types!

Long cardigans, in particular, are on trend this year. You can wear them over top of your favourite dress to combat the cold, but my favourite way to wear a long cardigan is with a simple top, skinny jeans and booties for a casual yet chic outfit!

Structured Blazers I hope these never go out of style. I wouldn’t say they are worn particularly just in fall, but that is my favourite time to wear a structured blazer. Often, I find the summer months to be too hot for blazers and though I also wear them in the winter, they can get uncomfortable and warm underneath a heavy winter jacket. You honestly cannot go wrong with a high quality structured blazer. This is definitely an item to have in your fall closet - especially if your lifestyle requires business appropriate attire.

The Heart of a Communit y


n any community, you will find people willingly helping others without being paid. These valuable volunteers offer their time and talents in countless ways, and their contributions strengthen the community in which they live. Volunteers help support families young and old, encourage sports and recreation, assist in many areas of health care, foster relationships with the marginalized, care for animals, develop talents, nurture youth, help the environment and beautify outdoor spaces. Often, a volunteer’s



gift is compassionate; other times, it is scholarly; and sometimes, it is dirty, sweaty, hard work, but it always comes from the heart for the betterment of others.

Volunteers are the most important resource community organizations have. Many businesses and social service associations are successful because they maintain a strong volunteer workforce. In fact, almost all mission-driven or faith-based establishments rely on volunteers to meet their goals. They pick up the pieces where government programs


leave off. These groups are committed to doing good things for society and improving their communities. Volunteering has positive benefits for the volunteer, as well. Don’t know where to start? Websites are now dedicated to this exact topic and provide lists of organizations looking for help and ideas of what they require. Follow your passion to something you love, and then jump on board. You will gain valuable experience, meet great new people and find it extremely rewarding. All this, while giving back to your community — it is truly a win for everyone!

Share the experience. Weyburn Red Wings As a community-owned non-profit organization, the Weyburn Red Wings Hockey Club could not operate without the generous support of the local community, through sponsorships and volunteer hours.

We are looking for enthusiastic and driven people who have a passion for sports and would like to join the team for the upcoming season. The Red Wings are looking for interns in the following areas: Game Day Video Operator, Digital Media Coordinator, Game Day Assistant Coordinator, InGame Announcer/Broadcasting.

When you sit back and reminisce about the music of the 70s and 80s, Fleetwood Mac, one of the top bands on the charts, is sure to come to mind. They sold more than 100 million records and touched the lives of millions of fans. Their music still receives air time on radio stations around



the world today - now, that is some serious longevity! Together Stevie (Tracy Masson), Lindsay (Mario Parente), Christine (Wendy Gorrie), Mick (Todd McGarvey) and John (Ray Doucett), form the Dreams’ version of the ‘Mac Pac’. These fab musicians are joined by the talents of Stephen Manning on rhythm guitar and Bob Van Velzen on keyboards. The players of Dreams take pride in being able to replicate the Fleetwood Mac sound so well that even trained ears have difficulty distinguishing the difference.

A Buddy Holly Tribute


orn Charles Harden Holley, on September 7, 1936, in Lubbock, Texas, Buddy Holly was the fourth and youngest child in his family. His mom nicknamed him “Buddy”, a name that stuck over his brief lifetime. Buddy Holly was a rock and roll legend, whose music touched the lives of millions of people around the world. It sparked a new genre of music that permanently changed the entertainment industry. His life was cut short, however, in the wellknown and tragic plane crash of February 3, 1959 - a privately chartered plane was taking them to their next gig in blustery winter weather.



After acting, singing and playing in a community theatre production of The Buddy Holly Story, three young men decided to take the show on the road. Formed in 2011 in Brandon, Manitoba, Tom, Dylan and Roman – “Buddy”, “Joey” and “Jerry” - bring this rock music prophet back to life! They perform all of Buddy’s timeless classics - ‘That’ll be the Day’, ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Everyday’, ‘Rave On’ and have an absolute ‘blast’ doing it! Rave On: A Buddy Holly Tribute is an exciting show that includes a ton of audience interaction, humour, dancing and even some sweet upright bass tricks. This concert will be held at the Cugnet Centre, Thursday, November 2, 2017, at


7:30 p.m. If you close your eyes during the concert, you will swear that Buddy Holly lives on!! https:/ buddyhollycanada/ TICKETS AVAILABLE AT: Old Fashioned Foods 122 3rd St., Weyburn Weyburn Review/ Weyburn This Week 904 East Ave., Weyburn Music Craft 215 Railway Ave., Weyburn For further information contact: Judy Van Betuw @ 1-306-842-1583

WHISK(E)Y101 WHISKY = Canada & Scotland | WHISKEY = USA & Ireland (In Canada & Scotland, we don’t waste time writing that could be spent drinking!) Did You Know? Whisky means ‘water of life’ in Gaelic.









Pour whisky into a wide glass that curves in at the top to trap the aroma. Add water to unleash the whisky’s full flavour and aroma.


Hold glass up to light. What is the colour? Golden honey? Woody brown? How thick is it? Thicker=higher alcohol content.


Swirl and inhale. What do you smell? Fruit? Smoke? Vanilla?


Take your time. Savour the flavour. Breathe deeply to enhance the flavour.


Feel the whisky on your tongue, as it slides down your throat. Does it feel smooth?

Did You Know? Nearly a third of the whisky poured into a barrel is lost to evaporation. This is known as the ‘angels’ share’.

Making the Most of Your Mudroom By Tonya Lambert

Today’s families are busy. Children and adults alike are always on the go. Families need a living space that facilitates an active lifestyle. A well-designed and organized mudroom is a key component to helping every family member’s day run smoothly.




A mudroom is meant to make your life more efficient. A well-appointed mudroom means less stress in your life and a better start to your day.


ncreasingly common, mudrooms are the transitional area between your home and the world outside. They are the space that contains the chaos and grime of the world and keeps it from the tranquil refuge of your living space.

Organization/Cabinetry A mudroom is meant to make your life more efficient. A well-appointed mudroom means less stress in your life and a better start to your day. Your mudroom should be comprised of specifically-designated spaces. Every shelf, cupboard, drawer and container should have a set purpose. This minimizes clutter and misplaced items which can slow you down. You may want to consider individual cubbies for each family member. Outside essentials, whether outerwear, school backpacks or sports equipment, should be easily accessible so that you can just grab and go. Frequently used items should be kept in open storage spaces so they are easily accessible. Hooks are preferable to hangers as they

can be used to hang a wider variety of items, including coats, backpacks, dog leashes, handbags and scarves. You can also grab what you need from them quickly and easily. Many people include a bench or chair in their mudroom for putting on and taking off boots. A bench that doubles as extra storage space for sports equipment, pet supplies, garden tools or other items is a great use of space. Other items you may want to consider having are a memo wipe board or bulletin board, a large family calendar, a laundry basket or a recycling bin.

Flooring The mudroom is the most trafficked room of the house. Family members and guests enter through it, bringing with them on their shoes and boots the debris of the day – be it rain or snow, mud or dirt. Consequently, the mudroom needs flooring that is durable and easyto maintain. Ceramic tile and vinyl are the best choices for mudroom flooring. Natural stone and wood if properly sealed will work, as


well. Ceramic tile is longer lasting than vinyl but also more expensive. What you choose will depend on your sense of style and budget.

Lighting There are a number of things that need to be considered when picking the lighting for your mudroom. How much natural light is there? Are there windows or skylights in your mudroom? What colour scheme did you choose? Does your mudroom also double as a laundry room? Most mudrooms are done in darker, dirtfriendly tones. This may make additional lighting necessary. On the other hand, some people choose to go with softer lighting to make any dirt less visible. Ambient lighting such as track lights, flush mounts and pendants is often sufficient, However, a mudroom which does double-duty as a laundry room or office space may require more lighting. Design your mudroom to best suit your family’s unique needs. And remember that a room can be both functional and fashionable at the same time.




Come in and see your lighting specialists at Richardson Lighting. We’re proud to have been serving Saskatchewan for the past 50 years.

Five decades of lighting the way.

Farm Safety:


Everyone's Responsibility By Jaime Johnson

s summer winds down, folks in the agriculture sector are gearing up for the hectic harvest season. During this busy and often stressful time, farm safety should remain front-and-center in the minds of everyone working in the agriculture business. Unfortunately, safety and security are often overlooked and are issues rarely discussed outside of agricultural circles. Tractor rollovers. Aggressive animals. Machinery entanglement. Heatstroke. There’s no doubt about it - agriculture is a dangerous occupation. In fact, it ranks fourth as the most hazardous industry in Canada. The economic costs associated with agriculture-related injuries are also substantial. It’s not that farmers and ranchers aren’t aware of the dangers and risks that exist on a farm. Most people involved in the agriculture sector are acutely aware of how hazardous working on a farm can be. However, farmers are perpetual risk takers. It is part of the job. Whether the decision is to work through the night, enter a grain bin without a harness or approach an injured




animal, risks are taken everyday in order to work a little longer, a little faster or to save a few dollars. However, farm-related injuries could be avoided or reduced if risks are recognized and continually evaluated. •

Educate workers, family members and children about farm safety and potential dangers.

Don’t be complacent about hazardous tasks that have been performed over and over without incident.

Make sure equipment is well maintained and has rollover protection, seatbelts and other proper safety features in place.

Before performing any repair work, ensure that machinery is shut off and always wear safety

goggles, earplugs, welding masks and gloves. •

Wear sunglasses in bright outdoor light to reduce glare, especially when operating machinery or vehicles.

Use ample lighting to illuminate work areas.

When working with livestock, anticipate the possibility of a stressed or injured animal behaving unpredictably.

Use gates and guards that serve as protective barriers between you and potentially aggressive or unpredictable animals.

Even when time is a scarce commodity, it is imperative that everyone has adequate rest and energy to function properly. Take breaks. Try to get at


least six hours of sleep. Stay hydrated and well fed. If you aren’t getting enough sleep or nourishment, mental agility will be challenged and mistakes will be made. Keep an emergency kit in every tractor, combine and truck, and ensure that everyone has a mobile phone or radio readily available in case help is needed. Unpredictable and harmful accidents may still occur even when precautions are taken and safety practices are adhered to. In such an unfortunate event, having adequate disability and life insurance and a will in place is essential. This will protect your family and assets and can ensure that the financial viability of your farm will remain intact. Farm accidents may never be completely avoided, but the severity and frequency can be minimized if safety and security are kept in mind.






griculture has long been a pillar of the community in Weyburn. Indeed, 91 percent of the land in southeastern Saskatchewan is used for agriculture, split almost evenly between grain and livestock farming. Every day, these men and women work hard to feed the people of the world. This spring that work became a bit easier when Agriterra Equipment opened their first Saskatchewan dealership in Weyburn. Founded in 2013 in Stony Plain, Alberta, Agriterra Equipment is a young company that is expanding rapidly with nine locations already and more to come. The reason for the company’s success is its two-pronged approach: they have combined the trusted tradition that is the AGCO brand of farm machinery (Massey Ferguson, Challenger, Fendt, Gleaner, Sunflower, Rogator and Terragator) with the top technology available in



Many of the product lines offered by Agriterra haven’t been sold in southeastern Saskatchewan for some time. Many area farmers are happy that these lines are available here once again. It has been like welcoming back an old friend; several years may have passed but the connection and confidence are still there. Agriterra also has a selection of used equipment that is second-to-none!

repairs, Agriterra’s technicians will ensure that your downtime is kept to a minimum this harvest season. “Check out our exclusive WinterFix PM360 Program,” says Larry Heggs, branch manager. “These specially-designed seasonal preventative maintenance packages and inspections will ensure that your equipment is in good running order for harvesting.” Agriterra offers a full warranty on parts and service for all their product lines. In addition, ask about their AGCO+ interest-free payment terms on repairs.

Agriterra understands that farmers need ‘to make hay while the sun shines,’ so to speak. That is why they have a trusted team of factory-trained technicians available 24/7 and equipped with mobile service vehicles so they can assist you both in-field/on-farm as well as in their shop. Handling everything from periodic maintenance to major component

Agriterra can also help you prepare to plant next season’s crops. They sell the most cutting-edge technology, such as Top Con, Raven and Outback Guidance GPS systems, for high speed, variable rate planting. Agriterra’s precision farming specialists will ride with you in your tractor to teach you how to utilize GIS (geographic information systems)

choosing the right piece of equipment to operating and maintaining your machinery. “As one of Agriterra’s largest dealerships, we look forward to working with our established customers and new customers as we continue to grow,” says Hegg.

have worked in a veterinary hospital as a registered veterinary technologist for 14 years. Many times throughout the years, a patient couldn’t be saved due to financial concerns of their medical care. In Canada, we value high quality medical care for ourselves, but are not always able to afford it for our beloved pets. Pet insurance is like having health benefits for your pet. Many people don’t know about the option of pet insurance. There are a lot of questions and assumptions that it is costly and can be difficult to make claims. We recommend a company called Petsecure, one of Canada’s oldest and largest pet health insurance companies which makes the process simple. Pet insurance is referred to as coinsurance. As a Petsecure customer, you’ll be reimbursed for up to 80 per cent of the cost of care and veterinary services. This includes x-rays, hospitalization, surgery and even prescriptions required for any accident and illness. There are four different levels of coverage; they vary in coverage amounts for accidents and illness, all the way up to including your pet’s annual wellness care. You can protect any age or breed of dog or cat. Having a pet get sick or injured is stressful enough without the worry of the financial



costs. Protect the ones you love. Speak to your veterinarian about the benefits of pet insurance or visit www.petsecure. com. As a veterinary professional, I believe in the value of pet insurance, and my bloodhound Jed is enrolled; I know no matter what trouble his nose finds, he will be protected.

but it wasn’t. Knowing that Jed had pet insurance allowed me to make the best decision for him when he needed it most. The health of your pet can change in the blink of an eye and having pet insurance allows you to adapt to it.

Here is one of many great stories of a pet’s life that has been saved because of pet insurance. I would like share my personal experience of pet insurance.

Kristin Caldwell, Weyburn, SK One morning Jed, our 5 year old Bloodhound came in from outside limping on his left hind leg. I knew from experience that his injury was most likely a ruptured cruciate ligament. After his vet examination it was confirmed he had torn his cruciate ligament. With a dog as large as Jed the preferred method of surgical repair also happens to be the most expensive. Jed is only 5 years old and I wanted to give him the best chance of resuming a normal life and preventing arthritis by having the surgery right away and going with surgery that had the best surgical success rate for his size. For a family with four children right before Christmas being able to say yes immediately could have been difficult

With the market as competitive as it is today, we need to be flexible on the jobs we are bidding. To be flexible, we need equipment that can work in different applications. We, at Swayze’s, called on the fellows at Castleton and signed up a couple of their Cross Clam tridem trailers. This trailer will do anything that a regular belly dump and a clam dump can do, but combined into one. We can gravel roads; haul pit run, A-base, stockpile in the yards and even use it for paving. To increase the efficiencies of our hauls, we also took the next step and hooked onto a couple sets of Super B Cross Clams. These trailers function the same as the tridems but haul larger loads getting more product to your project faster.

Why You Should Hire


to do Your Trades and Services Work By Samantha Giampa


et me start out with a story about some friends that I will call Bill and Louise. They wanted to renovate the upstairs of the home they had owned for 15 years. All their inquiries through the yellow pages for qualified builders put their start date out about six months. They played baseball with a guy who told them there were several guys on the team that could perform the work they wanted, thus saving them a lot of money on contractor’s fees. They could start right away for



cash money. This all seemed too good to be true . . . and it was. After months of putting up with the demolition and the safety hazards that went with it, constant no-shows when they had been promised work, substandard workmanship when they did appear to work and a guesstimated budget that was now out-of-control, Bill and Louise’s patience ran out. They had to hire the services of a professional to take over and complete their project.


The professional contractor they eventually hired came with references, which they promptly investigated, and he introduced them to a designer that worked with them on a plan for the area. The contractor gave them a quote and a timeline for the scope of work they required. He also informed them that the drywall and flooring should have been tested for asbestos before it was removed, as this is a work-safe mandated practice for everyone’s safety. On the acceptance of his contract, the professional contractor applied

for a permit at the local jurisdiction. The job started when it was supposed to and was completed in the allotted window of time. His company carried Work Safe insurance and liability insurance as well as a first aid ticket, as did every professional sub-trade, such as the plumber and the electrician, that worked on the project. The work was inspected at necessary stages to make sure everything was done to meet code. His crew was clean, courteous, safe and worked fulltime hours. The contractor was easy to communicate with about all aspects of the job. In the end, Bill and Louise were thrilled with the final results of their renovation, a product that came with a warranty. They were pleased they had ultimately hired a highly-trained professional and his team to guide them through their project. If you need work done on your house, your vehicle or any piece of equipment, you should hire a professional from the start. You may think you are saving a few bucks or a bit of time by using a friend or by doing the task yourself, but in the end you will be better off to hire a professional that is trained in the skills of their trade and who will do your job right the first time.

A Quick Guide to



here are many reasons for wanting to restore and own a classic car. It could be the challenge and experience, the chance to attain a long-held dream or the uniqueness of owning a vehicle few others have. Perhaps it is an investment or simply nostalgia for the ‘good ole days’. Whatever your reason for undertaking a classic car restoration, approach the project realistically. This is an enterprise that takes time and requires organization, patience, perseverance, knowledge and money. Calculate your time, skills and money honestly. Research your options carefully. Check the internet and local salvage yards. When choosing a car to restore, examine it thoroughly. How much rust is there? Will the engine need to be completely rebuilt? Was it a rare model or a popular car? Remember, the rarer the car, the harder it will be to find parts. Once you have picked a vehicle to restore, you will need to take it apart completely. Do this piece by piece, taking photos

and detailed notes and keeping a record of every item. Make a list of the parts you will need and the bodywork that must be done. You can find used parts online, at salvage yards or from other enthusiasts. To restore a car, it is helpful to acquire the build sheet. This will detail exactly how the vehicle was assembled. Local mechanics, car blogs, professional restorers and other amateur enthusiasts are also a great source of knowledge. If you are not mechanically inclined, you may want to consider purchasing the necessary engine parts and then have a local mechanic install everything. For paintwork, always hire a professional. There are no short cuts or easy fixes when it comes to restoring a classic car. It takes a great deal of time, work and money, but the satisfaction that comes when driving in your classic car is priceless.

ur experience with ReFINEd Weyburn was nothing short of excellent. The entire team was great to work with. As a new business, it was assuring to work with others who believe in what we are doing. ReFINEd sincerely wants to help promote your business in a thorough, professional way that is branded with the owner’s touch so the readers know who is behind the business and how it will benefit the public. With ReFINEd having such a great reputation, we definitely wanted to have Olympia In Depth Performance promoted

on the cover page to help spread awareness of our business throughout the community and surrounding areas. The amount of positive feedback we have had from members, the community, friends and family has been very humbling. We truly believe ReFINEd has helped to put us on the map and to reach out to people who want to be a part of what we are trying to accomplish here at OID - helping people become the best version they can be through health, fitness, coaching and community. We look forward to working with ReFINEd Weyburn again in the future. The Olympia in Depth Team
