that was the beginning of my interest. I was addicted,” he said. “In the second year of my internship, I knew Ron’s program was out there. The two of us were able to develop the course in 2007. We were like a film company, working on a budget from nothing to low, but we learned how to take advantage of the resources. We didn’t have much in lighting and sound. Eventually the students and I built the studio space.” Dietrich taught one year at Centennial Collegiate. When Berntson retired, he appreciated the division’s generous decision to invite him back to Evan Hardy. He has been the steadying influence in the program since September 2009. He is now assisted by Mitch Lysak, whose work comes through the integration of media and English curriculums. “Since joining the program full time, I wanted to see how much we could expand, how we could get better equipment and facilities and be more efficient in everything we managed. And as we advanced, I think we’ve improved our storytelling dramatically.”

For students, the educational rewards are five credits (which are either compulsory credits or full graduation equivalents), plus two Grade 12 credit options. “Media School uses scriptwriting as English expression. Or sound-source recording as a practical physics application. Or the film analysis as an assessment for learning the storytelling craft and the physical methods of creation,” Dietrich said. The students learn to make quality productions. Previous classes have been honoured nationally for their work in Youth Privacy, Eco Canada and MADD Canada contests. A most recent accomplishment has been a film, Diagnosed, which tells the story of a girl diagnosed with breast cancer and the challenges of going through her five acceptance levels. The film won three awards at the Living Skies Student Film Festival, organized by the University of Regina. It was in competition against entries from the university students. (Continued on page 5)

Citizen Café and Bakery

Young entrepreneurs open hot new coffee spot

S

Lexi Edmunds Saskatoon Express

askatoon’s coffee community has a new citizen. Although Citizen Café and Bakery opened just last month, it has been on Brittany Brown and her sister-in-law Nikita Brown’s radar for six years. Brittany was only 18 when she and Nikita, then 21, had the idea. Over the years, the young entrepreneurs were immersed in the coffee scene. Now at ages 24 and 27 they have opened Citizen. “The coffee shops are so lovely in this city; there’s a really great coffee culture,” Brittany Brown said. “I feel that when Caffe Sola closed in August, Saskatoon lost some of the lounge space when it comes to coffee. We wanted to have an atmosphere where people can come and get to know each other. We want that sense of community with the customers. “When we decided to open up our own coffee shop, we wanted the name to express a sense of community, so that’s where the name Citizen comes from. I met a lot of my friends working at Caffe Sola; it was my social setting. It’s really wonderful to gather that same crowd.” Nikita moved to Saskatoon from Winnipeg eight years ago. She has seen a transition in the city over the years. “I remember when I first moved here, I’d make friends who were moving to Montreal or Vancouver, bigger and better places,” she said. “Now the people who did that are coming back and taking those things they’ve experienced in the big cities and bringing them here, which has changed the city so much. It’s wonderful.”

Nikita Brown (left) Brittany Brown opened Citizen Café and Bakery 18-23rd Street East (Photo by Sandy Hutchinson) Brittany, a lifelong resident of Saskatoon, has seen similar change. “I have watched the city grow and change, and I love being a part of it,” she said. Citizen has its own unique flavour, in both atmosphere and cuisine. “We have visited coffee shops all over Europe and in the United States. Citizen is a collection of all the things we liked. I was in a coffee shop in Vancouver when I noticed they had a running water fountain, and I stored that in the back of my mind for later use,” said Nikita. “We took things we liked from other coffee shops — or things that we thought were lacking — and utilized that knowledge.” There are other quirky qualities that give the coffee shop character, such as the names of the sandwiches. “All of our sandwiches are named after revolutionary citizens,” Brittany said. “There are descriptions of why we chose the names on our website (citizencafeandbakery.ca). People seem to really enjoy them; it’s just a little added something.” Citizen has something to offer for all types of foodies. “We based the lunch menu on the idea that everyone loves a good sandwich. It doesn’t have to be hoity-toity, and it doesn’t have to have a lot of ingredients

as long as each of the ingredients are very good,” Brittany said. “We make all of our own spreads for our sandwiches; we roast all of our own chicken and spice our meat. We have top quality bacon, and we have just as many vegan and vegetarian options. “We have gluten-free wraps for everything. Soups and salads are always vegan or vegetarian. We wanted our menu to be simple.” The owners are particularly proud of their coffee and teas. “Our roasting company that we brew from is called Bean North; they’re based out of the Yukon. The espresso blend that we get is exclusive to us and only one other shop in the city,” Brittany said. “We get all of our tea from a supplier based out of Ontario. They’re called Social. They have some of the best-quality teas we have ever tried. The teas have actual pieces of fruit. Or there is a roasted almond tea which is so flavourful — it contains nuts and apples and spicy chives straight from India. People seem to be really enjoying that as well. If you’re not a coffee drinker, there is lots of tea. We even carry pop in glass bottles.” The food is European inspired. “I did a lot of travelling; I brought a lot of recipes back from Europe,” Brittany said. “We also have vegan and glutenfriendly options. If we’re going to have a

sense of community, we want everyone to be included, so we have options for everyone. People are also so excited to hear that we have almond milk for coffee. “We ensure that everything is quality and that our customers enjoy every bite, that every coffee is really good, and that our service is friendly. The service and atmosphere are our priorities.” Nikita and Brittany are two of a growing number of young entrepreneurs in Saskatoon. They cite other company owners as their inspiration. “Young entrepreneurs are opening shops all over the city. It’s fantastic. I was inspired by other business owners in the city. There’s Alchemy Clothing and Salon, Luna & Hill Clothing Company and Unreal City comic store,” said Brittany. “We just want these business owners to know how much they inspired us and really pushed us to do what we wanted to do. And also how much our customers mean to us. “Every business says that their customers mean everything to them. But honestly, because we’re a coffee shop based on community, we really mean it when we say it’s all for them. We wake up every day for them.” Citizen is located at 18 23rd Street East. You can reach the café and bakery at 306-343-1043.

Evan Hardy’s Media School one of a kind

P

(Continued on page 3) articularly exciting is that each semester closes with a film festival. Student videos are submitted to a jury within the film and TV industry, and they are ranked. Students receive feedback in the defined categories. The Broadway Theatre is rented for the festival night, and about 430 people, including industry professionals, are invited. All of the juried works are honoured, but the highlight comes when the audience picks its favourite. Media School seeks professional assistance whenever and wherever possible. During one semester in 2011, students were fortunate enough to share in the experience of a motion picture, Ferocious, which was filmed in Saska-

toon. Many students from Evan Hardy were used as extras. For many of the semesters, students made trips to Regina, where they would walk set after set, visit the Saskatchewan soundstage and watch specialty units in action. Dietrich said there is “some disappointment in going to Regina to see the soundstage as empty as it’s been since a year ago. There was a benefit in acquiring their Space Centre equipment for us to use in Saskatoon.” Trips to Regina are still possible, but from April 22-26 there are 39 students (some from the fall semester and others from the current semester) are going to Vancouver. “We will visit post-secondary schools which offer film courses. We want to see what they are doing and

how their programs differ from ours. There are two or three studios which will let us have a look at what they are currently doing. We have photography directors willing to share time with us. We hope to make a learning experience in as many areas as possible.” Dietrich said there have been a number of Media School graduates who have gone to Vancouver to either continue their studies or work in film. To help offset the travel costs, one of Media School’s fundraisers will take place on March 8 at Sutherland Hall. Students will engage in a scavenger hunt in the early evening. After dinner there will be a screening of the fan favourite award winners from all previous semesters. Most of those will be from eight to 10 minutes long.

Jazz festival names headliners Saskatoon Express

en Harper, a singer-songwriter-guitarist, and Charley Musselwhite, a revered master of blues because of his harmonica skills, will be headlining one of the first nights on the TD mainstage at the Delta Bessborough Gardens at this year’s Saskatchewan Jazz Festival. The festival opens June 20. Harper and Musselwhite are featured the next night. Adding to the excitement of the catch is that Harper and Musselwhite recently collaborated on a CD titled Get Up! — a stirring adventure into gospel, roots, country, and rhythm and blues. Harper found commercial success with a radio single Steal My Kisses (in 2000), but he continues to explore different musical textures. Musselwhite has played with giants the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, and he’s a member of the Blues Hall of Fame. Another booking for the mainstage is Tegan and Sara, who will appear on June 26. They have shared the stage for 13 years, cross all boundaries of genre and come fresh on the heels of their seventh CD (Heartthrob). Two signings were also announced for the Broadway Theatre. John Medeski, Billy Martin, Chris Wood and guitar ace John Scofield will work on June 21. This will be the first time the four have toured together. Their newest release (Out Louder) is rooted in jazz, funk and blues. They will also draw out the repertoire from another CD, A Go Go. Cassandra Wilson is a vocalist-songwriter ticketed for a Saskatoon appearance on June 24. Her landmark album was entitled Blue Light ‘Til Dawn. She has won two Grammy awards, the 2012 Echo Award for Jazz, and she performed a leading role in Wynton Marsalis’ Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Tickets will go on sale at the festival box office at the Bessborough on March 10.

property, be it commercial, single-dwelling homes or multi-dwelling buildings. Is it fair to charge multi-dwelling units the same price as single-dwelling homes for recycling? Why not? Does a couple living in a 1,000-square-foot condo generate the same volume of recyclables as a couple living in a 1,000-square-foot single-dwelling home? Is it fair to charge a person living alone on a fixed income the same amount for recycling as a working family of four or more? When introducing the program council determined everyone pays the same fee regardless of circumstance.

flowing from the federal government through the province gets to neighbourhoods right here in Saskatoon. I reported to the Big City Mayors on rail safety. I am the representative on that committee. We have made significant progress in learning what’s in those rail cars, identifying safety issues with some tank cars and making sure first responders are well trained. But I have to tell you the real issue for me is trains travelling through our city. I want to open up discussions with the rail companies and see if we can find a way to keep our community safe by rerouting trains around Saskatoon. (Have a question for Mayor Atchison? Send it to editorial@saskatoonexpress.com. Please put “mayor” in the subject line.)

and the private sector to construct more attainable homes, rental units and even single family homes. We met with Minister of State for Social Development, Candace Bergen, and she listened to our concerns. I think the federal government would like cities to come up with some new and innovative ideas for creating good, safe, secure housing. We are going to work on that in the weeks and months ahead. On the infrastructure issue, cities are concerned that the New Building Canada Fund (NBCF) money could be spent by provincial governments rather than going to cities who are on the front lines of maintaining and constructing necessary infrastructure. We have major projects ahead, and I am hoping that the money

site. Then when recycling took off, others got into the industry. Council agreed that in the recycling business and in terms of community action, no harm would come to Cosmo. Later when we awarded the contract to Loraas for singlehome collection, we said that Cosmo Industries would get the multi-unit dwelling contract. Cosmo worked on a price Mayor structure with the administration. They talked with the condo associations and apartment owners and came up with the number of $1.56 per unit plus a 94-cent fee for administering the program and the education component. That would be the monthly cost to the owners of $2.50. Council agreed that Cosmo would receive about $3.80 per unit. To make up the difference we hope to tap into the provincial Multi Material Recycling Program (MMRP). It comes on line next January and could provide the funds to make up the difference between the $1.56 and the $3.80. Incidentally, more people are now recycling, and there is less to pick up at the depot sites now. There is a about a $250,000 savings there that would be applied against the cost. And Cosmo Industries has not paid property tax in the past and now will pay property tax. So all those dollars will go into that fund as well. The bottom line is we don’t want any impact on property taxes. That’s an important part. Question: You’ve just returned from a meeting of the Big City Mayors’ Caucus in Ottawa. It got a lot of attention because Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was there. What were the top issues you discussed? Mayor Atchison: First let me say that Mayor Ford was not a distraction from the meeting. There were a lot of reporters there. But that was good thing because our issues got media attention as well. I believe he contributed on the issues he cared about: social housing, infrastructure and concerns over postal home delivery. For me the top issues were housing, infrastructure and rail safety. About $1.7 billion in federal housing dollars will slowly disappear over the next five years. The money has been used on programs across the country. I would like to see programs that create a partnership among the cities, the federal and provincial governments

2014

Question: Can you explain how we went from an affordable city to live in a few years ago to one of the least affordable cities in Canada after you took over as mayor? Young families can’t survive here, and it’s getting worse by the day. Mayor Atchison: The numbers certainly don’t indicate that. We are somewhere in the middle when it comes Ask the to affordability. One of the reasons we are holding the line on costs is our Attainable Housing Program. From 2008 to 2012 we helped the private sector build 2,534 attainable homes in Saskatoon. That has made a huge difference for young families and those who want to own a home. It is recognized as the No. 1 housing program in Canada. Housing is the foundation of a safe and secure community. On top of that, when you have a strong economy, housing prices are usually stronger. When you have a weak economy, housing prices are traditionally weaker. New statistics indicate incomes rose about three per cent last year. And there are thousands of jobs available in Saskatoon. Housing isn’t an issue just for young families. Seniors are impacted as well. I want seniors to live in their homes as long as they want to. It is better for them and for the community. It reduces the pressure on rental housing, long-term care facilities and nursing homes. We have a property tax deferral program that allows low-income seniors to defer the increases on their property taxes until they sell their homes. It is a great program, and I wish more seniors would use it. I hope at some point we can defer all property taxes for all seniors. In the end it doesn’t cost the city anything; it is just a deferral of the taxes. I see no reason for a senior to be asset rich and cash poor and forced to sell their home because they can’t afford to live in it any longer. I think that is just dead wrong. Question: Can you give us a course on Recycling 101? There seems to be confusion surrounding recent events pertaining to the role of Cosmo Industries. Mayor Atchison: Cosmo Industries was the first recycler in Saskatoon and in Saskatchewan. They recycled newsprint. Cosmo has saved years on our landfill

licence to sell the pelts at auction or on the regulated free market. According to a source, inside the trapping industry in Saskatchewan this commonly leads to under-the-table cash deals between anyone with a gun and fur dealers. Open season on coyotes runs annually from Oct. 15 to March 15. According to a January 2014 report from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment, approximately 28,500 coyote pelts went to market in 2012-13, with over 90 per cent of

those harvested in southern Saskatchewan. Coyote pelt quantities come second to muskrat. But the value of coyote pelts blows everything else out of the water: Of the $5.75 million in Saskatchewan fur that sold in 2012-2013, $2.3 million was coyote fur. It’s a multi-million-dollar industry, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. Just ask the guy next to you in the Canada Goose. But for heaven’s sake, if you’re going to kill, cover it up.

Dressed to the nineties New looks more Clueless than corporate

P

aying homage to the 1990s might have readers wondering if we’ve invented a Saskatoon Express fashion time machine, and we’re hopping from the 1950s to the ’20s to the ’90s. We haven’t though. Promise. It’s certainly hard to ignore the fact that the 1990s are back in a big way, at least in terms of fashion. Though some

things we wore in the ’90s, such as leggings, have been popular again for years, more ’90s-inspired fashion than ever is being displayed by designers and creeping into our closets. Fashion has always been cyclical. So it was only a matter of time before fashion designers were inspired by the pre-millennium trends. Some of these trends are certainly

more wearable than others — think plaid flannel shirts inspired by the grunge music scene or suit separates that are more Clueless than corporate. Viktor & Rolf combined both plaid and suiting to create a rock-star-meets-school-girl look for their ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2014 collection showing at Paris Fashion Week. Crop tops that might seem too revealing, verging on intimidating, can be worn in a variety of ways to suit different body types. 3.1 Phillip Lim (yes, the same Phillip Lim who launched an affordable line at Target last fall) showed variations of this trend in his Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection. Though he showed daring midriff-baring crop tops with low-rise pants, he also showed crop tops with skirts and pants in a higher rise so only the tiniest bit of skin is shown when the clothing moves. Kim Kardashian has embraced yet another variation of this trend, and frequently wears high-rise skirts with cropped tops so only half an inch of skin is shown at the narrow natural waist. However, cutting a Dior dress in two to achieve the look like Kardashian recently did is not advisable; it’s a little too reminiscent of Tai’s makeover montage from Clueless. Designers also showed overalls for Spring/Summer 2014. But they’re not the same two-sizes-too-big denim overalls with one Fashion strap we loved on Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of BelAir in the 1990s. Balmain showed a luxe leather version of the 90s staple, and Rag & Bone showed both black and white overalls paired with contrasting crop tops for Spring/Summer 2014. The new overall is more tailored and fitted than its 90s counterpart, and worn with a crop top, bandeau or sheer top. Fitted overalls worn as jumpsuits were also shown by designers as a modern variation of this 1990s look. Our SHE models are showing revival fashion that is easily wearable today: floral dresses, plaid shirts, light-wash denim and school-girl pleated skirts. It’s hard to separate 1990s fashion and quintessentially ’90s movies and television

shows. Nikki’s school-girl-separates look is Clueless-inspired, while Lawrence’s preppy denim jacket and patterned tee is Zack Morris from Saved By The Bell all over again. Andrew’s plaid button-up over a plain T-shirt is Shawn from Boy Meets World with a touch of grunge rocker, and Paige’s floral Blossom-esque dress and denim jacket are made slightly edgy with combat-inspired boots and black tights. Other 1990s trends making a comeback are PVC “jelly” shoes, snap-back hats, varsitystyle jackets and platform sandals. Now if only we could invent that time machine and keep all the 1990s clothes we gave away. All clothing and bags the models are showing were provided by Tonic and Banjo Editor Outpost (122 Second Avenue North); clothing from Tonic is also available online at www.farminista. com. Some accessories are the models’ and stylists’ own. Cora Johnson and Rachel Stange at The Factory Beauty Parlor (267 Third Avenue South) designed the models’ hairstyles. Debra Broberg created the models’ ’90s-inspired makeup looks. Even the location of our shoot — Louis’ Loft in the Memorial Union Building on the University of Saskatchewan campus — was inspired by hangouts like the Peach Pit from Beverly Hills, 90210 and The Max from Saved by the Bell. Models Nikki Evashenko, Lawrence Elliott, Paige Sawatzky and Andrew Slusar are represented by SHE Modelling Agency.

Beware when changing cellphone numbers

A

Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express

n abundance of mobile and smartphone apps are ready and waiting to make your life easier, instantly connecting you to your favourite websites at the touch of a button. Once registered for these digital services, confirmations are often sent to your mobile phone via text message. This ensures you will receive future notifications on your phone instantly. However, this also ties your cellphone number to numerous web-based organizations. What happens when you change your cellphone number? Just ask one of the Saskatchewan residents who has recently experienced a relatively new phenomenon. With no warning, some unassuming SaskTel customers have been shocked to discover that total strangers have suddenly gained access to their social-media accounts, email, text messages and more. “We hold a discarded wireless number for a minimum of 30 days up to a maximum of 90 days,” said Tara Tibeau, communications manager for SaskTel. “After that period of time, the number goes back into the pool.”

Users don’t often change their cellphone number. But if they do, it might be because they require a change of digits for personal reasons, or to move from an employer’s cellphone number to a personal number, or because they are simply cancelling their service (and their number) altogether. Regardless, the end result is a previously-used cellphone number being reassigned to a new user in as little as 30 days. “When people set up their Twitter accounts or any account attached to your mobile phone, you often have the option to turn on mobile phone alerts, which requires the user to input their cell phone number,” said Tibeau. “Once you enter your number that organization is going to constantly send your alerts to that same number. They have no way of knowing it’s been reassigned unless you change your account settings or tell them yourself.” Sounds easy enough if you remember to make the change. With a skyrocketing amount of personal information being stored online and a pile of contacts to send your new information to, it’s easy for things to slip through the cracks. “We’re seeing an increased number of smartphones and an increased use of social media. So of course you’re see-

ing an increased use of social media on smartphones,” Tibeau said, noting financial institutes, gaming applications and other organizations are also big into text-tophone movement. “The more stuff you’re associating your number with, the more likely you are to forget where it is.” This point hit home recently for CBC Saskatchewan reporter Eric Anderson, whose employer-associated Twitter account suddenly started broadcasting obscenities. It was uncharacteristic, to say the least, for the soft-spoken Regina man. It became quickly apparent that the messages did not originate from Anderson, who panicked at the notion someone had hacked his Twitter account. Not so, however. Anderson had previously changed his cell phone number, which ended up being reassigned to another Regina resident. The Regina man was using an older model flip phone. And the Twitter alerts were bombarding his phone with what appeared to be text messages from an unknown source. Frustrated, the stranger replied with expletives, which appeared for the world to read as if they were written by Anderson. The situation was later sorted out, but it should serve as an eye-opener for anyone

considering doing away with their old cellphone number. Or obtaining a new one. “Essentially, it does not matter if your old number is assigned to a flip-phone or smartphone,” Tibeau said. “Once you disconnect the number, it’s going to end up back in the pool. When a cellphone user needs a new number, the SaskTel customer-service representative will generate a random pool of numbers for them to choose from. Customers often have a preference. Easy-to-remember numbers go rapidly.” Don’t rely on SaskTel to make all your changes, however. They have absolutely no way of knowing where and with whom you have registered your cellphone number. What of the new 639 area code that SaskTel announced last year? It has been implemented into the pool. Eventually it should decrease the likelihood of the overlay problem. In the meantime SaskTel recommends that smartphone and cellphone customers keep track of who has their old phone number and ensure all updates are made prior to the 30-day hold period expiring. If you are receiving text messages or cellphone alerts that do not belong to you, contact the SaskTel support centre.

New SNTC production ‘ Nation honours Metis

S

Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express

askatchewan Native Theatre Company (SNTC) is set to kick off its latest production — Réunir — on March 5. Written by Saskatchewan-born PJ Prudat in collaboration with SNTC’s Circle of Voices Youth program, the one-hour, one-act play delves into the depths of Métis history and life after the Battle of Batoche. Réunir director Curtis Peeteetuce has been involved with SNTC for the last 13 years. Peeteetuce, originally from Beardys and Okemasis First Nation, is a graduate of Saskatchewan Indian Federated College with a bachelor of arts in indigenous studies. In 2001 he knew he was ready for a change. “I was actually looking for something else in life to have passion for,” he said. “I was working in the education system at the time. I happened to see in the staff room a bulletin that said they were looking for First Nation’s people aged 12 to 26. I applied, and it was the Circle of Voices Youth program.” SNTC’s Circle of Voices Youth program is for aboriginal youth. It educates participants not only in theatre, culture and career development, but in life skills such as budgeting, doing a resume and applying for a job. The spirit of the Saskatoon aboriginal youth who volunteer in the program motivates and inspires Peeteetuce. “The program runs in the evenings,” he said. “It’s free to them; no charge. So it’s really up to them to continue to use their personal time to engage with the program in the evening, outside of school or their job. “They don’t have to be here, they’re here on their own accord. The Circle of Voices youth program is really about the participants. They have to go to school. They have to go to work. Without these things, they would be homeless. But they choose to be here. The program is a metaphor for life; you contribute, you

make sacrifices and that will result in success.” Réunir, which is French for “to meet” or “to unite”, centres on young Virginie as she struggles to find a life in the midst of the Métis Nation’s post-Batoche displacement. Virginie’s Kokum is her guide, sharing stories to comfort and invigorate her granddaughter. “This time around we’re honouring the Métis Nation,” said Peeteetuce. “We’re bringing back that theme into our programming. We haven’t done that since 2007. It’s a beautiful script; it’s very abstract. PJ plants seeds of truth in the script, but seeds of untruth as well.” The performance is an ensemble production, with every youth involved with the show understanding that though one actor may have more lines, every actor or character has an equal role because they’re present on the stage. “The actors bring an innocence to this performance,” Peeteetuce said. “If this were to be a cast of actors such as myself, and maybe some of the main stage performers in Saskatoon, this would be a very different play. When you have young people performing for the first time, the audience is really engaged with that energy. Watching brand new performers is exciting.” Peeteetuce, who has worked alongside legendary aboriginal performers such as the late Gordon Tootoosis and Tantoo Cardinal, is resoundingly positive when asked whether or not he has seen growth and change in the young participants as they have evolved through the Circle of Voices Youth program. “Definitely,” he responded. “It’s absolutely amazing to see a youth go from that timid shy individual they are when they start with us to someone who is ready to get on stage and take the lead role.” Réunir Presented by PotashCorp and SNTC. A Circle of Voices Production, written by PJ Prudat and the 2013-2014 Circle of Voices Youth program.

Lexi Edmunds Saskatoon Express he coffee is always on at 4-40 Quilt Shop. Owner Jackie Tennent loves having people drop in and visit. “I’m used to having a lot of people around me as a school teacher,” said Tennent, who spent 34 years as a teacher and school administrator for the Saskatoon Public School Division. “Over the course of my career I taught Grade 2 all of the way up to Grade 8. I was born to be a teacher. Sometimes you can make a teacher, but there are other people who are absolutely born to do it. It’s just something I have a huge passion to do.” Tennent’s love for quilting is also evident. The quilts include both blankets and wall hangings. She carries all the items needed for the hobby. “Quilting is a form of art,” she said.“It’s like painting with fabric. If you look at some of the pieces that are hanging around the shop, you will see that there are a lot of things that have been done by quilters, and they are works of art.” From school teacher to entrepreneur, Tennent is a busy individual. “So many people when they get to my age are just ready to golf and relax,” she said. “I have one career already finished, and now I’ve opened up my own business.” Although Tennent no longer works at a school, her teaching days are far from over. “We are going to teach (quilting) classes in the fall,” she said. “You can take a simple class on how to read and understand patterns, and we’ll sew it. I have a small classroom in the back. And then the ladies will come with their

machines and their fabric. And we’ll get out what they need for rulers, and then I’ll show them how to cut. That’s the teaching in me.” The store is nestled in a residential community at 440 Fourth Street. Those who visit the store will find a wellstocked shop. Tennent loves the location. “Quilters find the quilt shops. We have a newspaper that’s called Country Register. Quilt shops and craft shops advertise in it, and quilters plan their journey based on where the quilt shops are. It’s not uncommon to plot vacations based on where the quilt shops are. Quilters are very dedicated people.” Tennent knows about dedication. “You have to be passionate about what you’re doing, especially for the first couple of years. I’m in here 9:30 to 5:30 six days a week. That wouldn’t be possible were I not dedicated to this store.” The quilting store seems to be a great fit for the community. She said her soft opening was fantastic. “I had friends of mine that aren’t even quilters come. One gentleman brought a bottle of wine and crackers, and another friend of mine who drives a school bus brought a pink stapler. It was crowded. We had a great time.” The store’s official opening is scheduled for March 6-8. Community members, non-quilters and guild members alike are invited. There is plenty of parking, and the atmosphere is inviting. “I’ve always got coffee on, and I’m always telling people to come in and visit with me,” she said. 4-40 Quilt Shop can be reached at 306-242-4404 or at 4-40quiltshop@sasktel.net.

Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express

ordon Kincade has a life-long passion for teaching. He taught almost 35 years in public schools, and for 50 years has taught hunter education and firearms safety. Kinade will be one of the many volunteers and members of the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation making sure all goes according to plan at the annual Sports and Leisure Show from March 6-9 at Prairieland Park. “My dad introduced me to a .22 as soon as I could carry it,” the 82-year-old said. “I have shot all my life.” His career as a teacher also started at a young age. He was in a classroom in tiny Sintaluta, Sask., when he was 18 years old. “I had two boys in Grade 10 that were older than me,” he said with a laugh. Kincade, who was raised on a farm in Grenfell, took a long and winding road through the doors of many rural schools before moving to Saskatoon in 1967. He had taken a one-year course in Moose Jaw to get that first teaching job. He added three degrees to his resume before his retirement in June 1984 from Nutana Collegiate. At Nutana he became known for his journalism program. Ned Powers and Steve Shannon were among his guest instructors. His retirement year was not one he cherishes or can forget. Kincade’s wife, Elsie, died from cancer in April 1984. He had a heart attack in July and bypass surgery in August. Kincade remarried in 1987. Included in the package with Mara were three sons (Michael, Cameron and Mark). Kincade has a daughter, Donna, from his first marriage. “I acquired three sons. Even though they were teenagers, they are definitely my sons; they took my name.” They have since given Mara and him seven grandchildren. Donna emails her father every day from her home in Ontario. He estimates he has taught firearms safety to more than a 1,000 people since

Marks man Gordon Kincade has taught firearms safety for 50 years

Gordon Kincade will be among the many volunteers at the Saskatoon Sports and Leisure Show (Photo by Sandy Hutchinson) taking the training course in 1964. During the past few years he has taught people with learning difficulties or physical difficulties. Those classes are taught one-on-one or oneon-two, he said. This year he is stepping back from the program. He said the Saskatoon Sports and Leisure Show is the lifeblood for the local wildlife federation. He said the move from Credit Union Centre to Prairieland Park almost 10 years ago was particularly good for the show. “That was a big turnaround. The arena was not built for a sports and leisure show. As far as I know it is the biggest show in

Western Canada. I think we are No. 2 in Canada; Toronto has a bigger one.” He said the battle for spots on the floor is competitive. “We are sold out almost as soon as the show finishes. We turn away three or four people every week who want to be part of the show.” The Saskatoon Wildlife Federation has 2,000 members, double where it was just seven or eight years ago. It has an annual budget of more than $1 million. He said the membership has diversified over the years. “We’re not a little business anymore; we are a big business. We have never done a

survey to prove this, but a lot (of members) aren’t your hunter/fishermen people. They are very much a vital part. “We have a big group of shooters. I’m told we have 460 members of the rifle and revolver club. We have a very powerful group involved with conservation.” Kincade said if it wasn’t for the show, many programs would face being cut. “It would curtail a number of habitat initiatives and things like that,” he said.

Masters series resumes March 8

he Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra will be celebrating British music and composers, most notably A Sea Symphony, a massive choral work by Ralph Vaughan Williams, in its Masters series performance at TCU Place on March 8. “A Sea Symphony is a magnificent work that features voices as prominently as the instruments of the orchestra, and it melds both into a unique musical experi-

ence,” said Sarah Stack, the SSO’s director of artistic operations, in a release. “We’ve been fortunate to bring together the Saskatoon Chamber Singers (directed by James Hawn), the University of Saskatchewan Greystone Singers (with conductor Gerald Langner), and the University Chorus (also conducted by Langner), to perform this large scale choral symphony. They have been rehearsing this daunting work for some time.”

In addition to the choirs and the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra’s own musicians, there will be two renowned soloists. Soprano Monica Huisman has been described by the Winnipeg Free Press as “the next great voice on the Canadian opera scene ... with a resonant voice as rich as melted chocolate.” Saskatchewan-born Peter McGillivray has been hailed by Opera Canada for his “rich and blooming baritone, keenly

focused and rock-steady with nary a wobble.” The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra will also feature a new commissioned work — Overture — by Canadian composer Matthew David Becker. Becker, born in London, Ont., in 1984, obtained his master’s degree in composition at the University of Saskatchewan in 2012. Show time is 7:30 p.m. March 8 at TCU Place.
