This isn’t what I wanted

hey told me, “You have MG.” I would much rather they had said, “You have an MG,” you know, the British sports car, a red one, fully restored and ready to roll. I would have figured out how to fit my somewhat older, chubby body into it. I really would have. Instead, this older, chubby body has to learn how to cope with a different kind of MG– Myasthenia Gravis. Isn’t that a mouthful. Ironically, it affected my mouth, tongue especially, throat, eyes and maybe some effect on the arms. It’s a neurological disease that is not infectious nor genetic. Also on the irony side, my chubby body is about 20 pounds less chubby since the onset of the MG condition, so I would fit into an automotive type MG better than I would have before. Speaking of “auto”, this MG condition is an auto-immune disease. Here is the technical description. With Myasthenia Gravis, antibodies (immune proteins produced by the body’s immune system) block, alter or destroy the receptors for acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction, which prevents the muscle from contracting.  I was diagnosed pretty quickly, thanks to Dr. Poettcker at Neepawa and Dr.

Tamayo at Brandon. The treatments take effect within hours, but I will be on meds for the rest of my life. I was five days in Brandon hospital and on three kinds of IV. At the worst of my symptoms, I could not talk, only babble sounds, and could hardly eat because of severe choking. I think some of my staff preferred it when I couldn’t talk. The condition is considered serious and can be fatal. I am not afraid of death, as I know where I am going when my earthly days are done. The dying part is not something I am looking forward

into Winnipeg or even Brandon. Many rural hospitals have that capacity and it is efficient and makes sense. As my wife, Christine, has noted in this space on occasion, she has an ongoing, now life-long health condition that needs to be monitored by two specialists in Winnipeg and there have been several phone and telehealth consultations. That is perhaps the one good thing that C-19 has motivated. The ability to do phone and tele-health consultations has been there for years, but now, they have been accelerated by the pandemic. They save time, money and gas and this is a good thing. During trying times, we must remain motivated to do all we can for ourselves, for others and for our communities. It has always been thus, but now more than ever.

A false gospel

Mormonism - The Latter Day Saints Part Two

The Book of Mormon purports to be a historical record of two ancient civilizations that inhabited the Americas. One group left the area we now call the Middle East when God dispersed the people during the building of the Tower of Babel thousands of years ago, while the other left around the time of the Babylonian invasion of Jerusalem, circa 600 BC. The first group, called the Jaredites, crossed the Atlantic Ocean and settled in Central America, while the second group crossed the Pacific Ocean and settled in South America. The second split into two camps, one being the Lamanites (the ancestors of the Indians) and the other the Nephites. We are led to believe that Jesus Christ, after His crucifixion, resurrection and ascension into heaven, revealed Himself to the Nephites to be His chosen people on the western continent. The Nephites were to preach “the gospel” to the surrounding peoples, but there are complications: The golden plates Joseph Smith claimed to have discovered (containing the records of these ancient civilizations) were, as Smith stated, written in reformed Egyptian hieroglyphics. Smith took some of the pages he translated to a scholar who Smith said verified their authenticity, when in fact he wrote a letter stating he believed the writings to be a hoax because no such language exists. The Bible was originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek; all three being verifiable historical

languages. The Book of Mormon 1:7 reads as follows: “The whole face of the land had become covered with buildings, and the people were as numerous almost, as it were the sand of the sea.” Because of archaeology, we know that ancient Incan, Mayan, Aztec and Indian civilizations existed throughout the Americas, so it would seem obvious that archaeology will verify the existence of these vast civilizations as well. But there hasn’t been one shred of evidence. The Bible mentions hundreds of verified places and peoples. The Book of Mormon claims to be “Another Testament of Jesus Christ,” superseding the Bible as Holy Scripture that can only be interpreted and understood by the Mormon church leaders along with other Latter Day Saint (LDS) writings that include “Doctrines and Covenants” and “Pearl of Great Price. The Bible became a completed book in the early centuries of the first millennium BC and has been the sole source of Christian authority since. The beliefs and rituals of the Mormon church are bizarre to say the least. Here are a few: The God of the Bible, created by another god, was once a man on another planet, and because of his obedience, became a god and was given the planet earth to rule. God brought his goddess wives to earth and produced spirit children. His first offspring were Jesus and Lucifer, followed by the rest of humanity ( yes, they believe Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of

God and Satan are brothers) prior to obtaining our physical bodies. Faithful Mormons meeting all the requirements will someday become gods and be given their own planet to rule. This implies there are hundreds of gods in the universe. What does the true God say regarding so many gods? Isaiah 44:6 - “I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.” Isaiah 43:10 - “...Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me.” Isaiah 43:10 - “I am God and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me.” The Mormons will tell you they believe in Jesus Christ and the Bible, making themselves appear to be Christians, but they are not. They are just another false gospel the Apostle Paul warns about: Galatians 1:6-9 - “I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” My friends there is one God and one Saviour, Jesus Christ, found in the pages of the Holy Bible.

Home Bodies By Rita Friesen I am a traveller…

R

eading from Embers, by Richard Wagamese, the full quote is, “I am a traveller on a sacred journey through this one shining day.” I like that. I, too, am a traveller. The paths behind me filled with so many emotions, the joys, sorrows, despair, elation, the entire spectrum. And I know that without the low, sloggy bits, the clear smooth paths would not have the same importance. The sorrows expand the times of joy and the times of fear enlarge the periods of grace. The section of my journey now is paved and tranquil. My needs are few, I have enough, and I have purpose. (The knowing that I have enough has become increasingly significant to me, still exploring the idea.) And the path ahead? Choosing not to lose the joy of today, I again, have enough. Tomorrow will come. (Digressing– when my father needed to deny his daughters instant gratification or plainly say no to something we really wanted, he tried to put life in perspective and would ask, “what difference will it make 40 years from now?” To a youth, 40 years were unimaginable, and in my memory, some of those “nos” do make a difference more than 40 years later!) On a sacred journey. All angles of life, of my life,

appear magnified when I consider this journey sacred, holy, assigned. There is no small stuff, everything is important. And by that I don’t mean that the careless words of others or senseless acts of violence or cruelty are small stuff. The glistening of the sun on the crispy snow, the call of the crows, the gurgle of the water as it breaks free from the constraints of the winter ice– these are the little things that when I take note of, when I linger and watch and listen, that enlarge my day. The warmth of a tiny hand in mind– the memory of a tiny hand in mine, the wrinkles and age spots on Mary’s hands, hands that cared for others, hands that drew music from guitar strings , hands that baked exquisite brownies for others– these are all parts that make my journey sacred. The gifts of family and friends, generous acts of strangers, kind words shared– these, too, make my journey sacred. This one shining day. If this day was to be my last, what would I do or say? Years ago, my friend lost her mother from the hantavirus– contracted from contact with mouse droppings. That day, I had thoroughly cleaned the storage room in the big old farmhouse. I had been in close contact with many mouse droppings. I sat down on the wicker chair on the south veranda and pondered. There is very little chance of a recovery if one has the hantavirus. I sat there, ref lecting on my relationships with others, and myself. There was no name that came to mind that I should call, no name came to mind to whom I should apologise or affirm my love for them. After a time of contemplation, I arose, resumed my work, resting in the knowledge that if I were to die, that day, I would die with a clear conscience. Each day is still a shining day, a gift.

here were small footprints coming through the snow. Was it a cat on the prowl? The prints stopped next to my deck and I found a dead bird there. A little later, I saw some very small prints on the snow, more like bird prints and I imagined that birds had come along and realized their friend had died alone and they were grieving. It made me think of so many elderly who died alone. Some were pioneers who built our country, others survived fighting in wars. The family could not be at their side. Many are still grieving. Some might be younger people, whose family was not with them when they passed away. The grieving must be terrible. Jesus had compassion. He cried when His friend Lazarus died ( John 11:35). He had great compassion when He saw the two blind men and He healed them (Matthew 20:34). We can show compassion and love if we know someone who is going through this grieving period in their life. A text message or a phone call, telling them we are thinking of them and praying for them, can lift a load for the day.

That will be changing, as of Mar. 9, 2021 the doors will be open once again with covid rules in place. Over the past few months people have been seeing activity taking place at the Legion and wondering what has been going on. Well, here is the big surprise. It all started when Rae Culleton held a paint night upstairs and Caroline Phillips Currie made face masks, they then proceeded to donate their proceeds of $1140.00 and $232.00 back to the Legion. We thank them both very graciously. We decided to use this money to help fix up the place. The office got new carpet/paint & desk, the ladies washroom got new flooring/ paint/ and toilets, the carpets were shampooed, the bar was stained, the pool table and bar doors all re-oiled, the memorial room was painted along with the furniture, new fire place(thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Stonehouse for the donation) dance floor stripped and painted and waxed,

Rivers Youth Soccer Association, (RYSA), is happy to share that plans are underway to get kids back to the soccer fields this spring, after having to cancel last year’s season before it was set to begin! Programming is much the same for kids born between (U4) 2017 and (U8) 2013. There will be skill development sessions once a week – Wednesdays at 6pm. Those registering in the U4 program will require a parent to participate with child. Parent and child activities will help coaches focus on running the practice and less on worrying about social distancing. If public health restrictions allow, there will once again be weekend festivals for the U7/U8 teams to attend in both May & June. U9 (2012) – U17 (2004) is going to be looking at a season focussing on skill development. Instead of worrying about fielding a full team for any particular age group, we intend to combine age groups in order to have sufficient numbers to come together during practices for scrimmages etc. There will be two weekly training sessions, and we are hopeful that there will be opportunity for some exhibition matches, or perhaps even some official matches or a tournament. RYSA is part of the Westman Regional Soccer Association, (WRSA), and this year there have been some updates to their registration process. The Manitoba Soccer Association Inc., (MSA), will be streamlining the registration process for all youth players in the province, U3-U18. All athletes registering will first register through the MSA registration page, and then be directed on to complete registration for their program of choice. Information regarding this new process, detailed step-by-step instructions, and some Q&A are available online at www.westmansoccer.ca. Registration is now open until the end of March. If you have questions, please reach out to our Facebook Group (Rivers Youth Soccer Association) or e-mail riversyouthsoccerassociation@gmail.com . Whether your child is an avid soccer player, brand new to the sport or somewhere in between, we welcome them to join us as we get back in action! Tentative plans are to have everyone start the week of May 3. RYSA Board

Province distributes new legislation surrounding criminal assets

Bill 58 would bring enhanced measures to enable courts, law enforcement to move quickly to ensure criminal assets do not disappear News Media Services Manitoba Gov. The Manitoba government has distributed new legislation that would enable the courts and law enforcement to act quickly to prevent crimi n a l s f rom d i s pos i ng of suspected criminal property, Justice Minister Cameron Friesen announced today. “Grow i ng ev idence shows that organized cr ime, has too much oppor t u n it y to move proceeds of cr ime to avoid civil forfeiture,” said Friesen. “Bill 58: the Criminal Property Forfeiture Amendment Act, would enable courts and law enforcement to move more quickly to ensure criminal assets cannot be moved beyond the need of law enforcement a nd t he cou r t . This way, the recouped funds can continue to be invested in community initiatives that benef it Manitobans.” Under the current law, forfeiture proceedings have to begin before a person is required to answer questions about property believed to be an instrument or proceeds of unlawful activity and before a court may m a k e a n or d er pr e venting the person from disposing of the property. Bill 58 would allow the

court to make two new types of orders before forfeiture proceedings begin: • a preliminary preservation order that prevents a person from disposing of the property if the court is satisf ied there is a serious issue to be tried in forfeiture proceedings; and • a preliminary disclosure order that requires a person to answer questions related to how they acquired property when t here a re rea sonable grounds to suspect that property is an instrument or proceeds of unlawful activity. “ W it h ba n k i n g on smartphones and other technological advances, moving assets has become simple, easy and instant,” said Friesen. “This legislation allows pol ice a nd cou r t s to move quickly to ensure illegal proceeds of crime cannot be moved and hidden pr ior to commencing proceedings. These changes would put Manitoba at the forefront of add ressi ng org a nized crime and money laundering. Ultimately, this protects our communit ies and ensures criminals do not benef it from criminal activity.” The minister noted these orders would still require judicial authorization and oversight,

and said the proposed legislation includes the ability of the court to reject the application for either order if it would clearly not be in the interests of justice. The new legislation wou ld a lso i mprove operational ef f iciency and ensure the legislation alig ns w ith civ il forfeiture legislation in other jurisdictions and is consistent with court decisions in the area of civil forfeiture. In Manitoba, cash and proceeds from the sale of forfeited property are deposited into the Criminal Property Forfeiture (CPF ) Fund, which is used to: • compensate victims of the unlawful activity that led to the forfeiture of the property; • funding Victim Services; • promote safer communities by investing in specialized equipment/ training for law enforcement agencies; and • promote safer communities by providing funding to law enforcement agencies for community initiatives.

St. Patrick’s Day and shamrocks

Patricia Hanbidge Orchid Horticulture

If you have Irish roots, then you might be familiar with a bit about the lore surrounding St. Patrick’s Day. The patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick was not really Irish at all but born in Wales. Nevertheless, it was the day of his death (March 17th, AD 461) that commemorates St. Patrick’s Day. This day is surrounded by folklore and myths and shamrocks and quite often a little bit of green tinted beer. The history of the shamrock is long and colourful. According to legend the druids considered the shamrock with a triad of leaves to be sacred as to the Celtics, the number three was mystical. Even today it means many different things to people – from national pride, to religion, to celebration and more. Amazingly enough, no one really knows what the

“real” shamrock was in spite of the lore that surrounds the shamrock. It has been suggested that St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach people about Christianity as he travelled around Ireland in the 5th Century. As represented in much Celtic artwork, it was a pictorial representation of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit of the Holy Trinity. In the 19th Century, the shamrock became the symbol of rebellion against the English and a tribute to Irish identity….in fact wearing the shamrock was a risk punishable by hanging. So, getting back to our quest for the “true” shamrock, is it a plant that was easily found in both the 5th and the 19th Centuries? In 1988, botanist Charles Nelson took this debate to heart and actually did a shamrock survey. He asked that Irish folk collect what they imagined the true shamrock to be and send

those samples to him. Out of the top five species - two turned out to be different types of clover. The most common sample sent to him was Trifolium dubium which is a common clover found throughout the British Isles. This is an annual clover which grows about 25 cm in height. The next most popular sample was Trifolium repens or Dutch clover which is commonly found in lawns everywhere! Another study done a bit earlier by Nathaniel Colgan (c. 1893) showed that the “true” Irish shamrock was indeed a clover, but not just any clover but specifically the Trifolium repens that was found at that time in a majority of countries at that time. As a very vigorous plant or otherwise rather invasive, it would also make sense that this might indeed be the “true” shamrock. Continued on Page 6
