Congratulations

A number of youth were part of the group from the Macoun Evangelical Church who returned last week from a mission to Haiti. From left are Selena Wiebe, Karissa Gustafson, Michael Wiebe, Haley Klarholm, Darlene Bowen, Karen Klarholm, Randy Friesen and Charlie Bowen.

Youth return reflective from first look at Haiti A group of Macoun youth returned last week from a mission to Haiti energized but tired, and with a new perspective on the conditions under which many live. The Macoun Evangelical Church organized another trip to the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, this time taking eight of the congregation’s teens, aged 15 to 18. “We all had the thought in our minds that it was an impoverished country, but actually seeing that probably impacted us more so than just stories,” said Karissa Gustafson. The youth ran programming at the schools and churches and also attended one of the orphanages. “We all did the program together, but we each had a different leadership part in it,” said Selena Wiebe. Selecting what each individual would do was a matter of looking inside and deciding what was best for oneself. “Whatever we felt we wanted to do, or we could lead in the way we thought God wanted us to, that’s what we would choose,” added Selena. They organized puppet shows and sang songs with the Haitian children. “The puppets we took into the audience to kind of mingle with the kids,” said Michael Wiebe. The songs were sung in both English and Creole, with the children singing to them in their native tongue. They would be dealing with anywhere from 100 to 350 children at any given time, but the children would be

split up too, so they dealt with smaller groups from 15 to 20 as well. “You need to empathize with them when you’re there, but it’s hard to put yourself in their shoes because at the same time you’re seeing them and how they live, we live in this First World country where we can never be put in their shoes exactly,” said Karissa. “It’s a humbling experience.” The Macoun group was stationed in the Central Plateau of Haiti, about three hours from Port-au-Prince. They stayed in a compound where the water ran sometimes and a generator would kick on in the evening. They said the food was an adjustment because they were eating rice everyday, but added that the living conditions weren’t bad. The group was in Haiti from Feb. 16 to 27, returning in the early morning hours on Tuesday last week. All who went agree that the experience was a positive one, and as long as the adults continue to keep the trip open to the youth, they are all looking forward to the next opportunity to head down for a second mission. “There are different things that people tell you about Haiti, but it’s a lot different when you’re there for yourself and you see it for yourself,” said Selena. “It’s really nice to see the way that God actually works through these kids.” “It makes you realize the things we take for granted,” added Karissa. “Having power all day, or having power at all, and just the little things that if we went every day without,

it would change our lives completely, but you still make it through without them. It prioritizes things.” Michael added that since his return a friend of his came to school with soccer balls, and they hold an entirely new significance now. “When you’re (in Haiti), when they see a ball, they go crazy. So when I have it in my hand, it’s like I’m back in Haiti and where are the kids to throw it around with?” he said. Little things like having a ball to throw or kick around is a novelty for the children they were dealing with. “During the days that we did do our program, when there was any time that we could go play with them outside, or (they asked) can we have a picture with you, they all just wanted to do it so badly. They’d come to grab your hand and ... they’re like little kids here. They wanted to show you how good they were at jumping rope, so they each wanted their try,” said Karissa. In the area where the Macoun youth stayed, they were don’t get many visitors, and Darlene Bowen, one of the adults on the trip, noted that they would even more rarely have teenagers visiting them, so there was quite a bit of excitement when the teens arrived on day one. Michael also recalled their experience with Pastor Jack, a Haitian with a church in the area. His house had been partially destroyed when a road was being built right next to it. “We decided to give the church some money,

and also him so he could help repair his house. We gave him $300 and the smile on his face when he got it (said) ‘We’ve been blessed, but I don’t know what to do now.’ He was speechless for awhile.” The girls also left all of their clothes and shoes in Haiti for the girls there. They returned to Canada on Feb. 27 in flip-flops. There aren’t any details ironed out on a further mission to Haiti for the Macoun church, but if more trips are in the works, they’ve added to the numbers of whom will sign up to go down. Along with the eight young people who went this time, they have more friends who are ready to go for the next trip.

North Korea is very interesting, maybe the most interesting country in the world, which makes Kim Jong Un the most interesting man in the world. The kid is a few years older than I, and he’s running a nation that, if not hated by most of the world, is at the very least scorned because of the way the leadership treats its citizens. For any concerns people may have about this young person being in charge of possibly the most unstable regime on the planet, consider this: he’s not even 30 yet. Things have started well enough for his term in power, after the North Koreans agreed to accept a few hundred thousand tons of food in exchange for suspending their uranium enrichment program and allowing International Atomic Energy inspectors to monitor exactly what they’ve been up to with that nuclear program. He’s only got four years on me, so he probably really just wants to watch basketball, like his old man, and talk to his friends on Facebook. He probably hates that he has all this responsibility thrown in his lap. He has to run a country, and it’s North Korea. He probably doesn’t let on when he’s hanging out with his advisers and military leaders that he’d rather be at home playing video games than talking to them about the status of the troops and overseeing which

Jordan Baker Thoughts From My Fingers targets the nukes are aimed at. His ears probably prick up when they mention war games out at sea, but then he’ll realize it’s just a bunch of nautical mumbo-jumbo and has nothing to do with hunting down German U-boats in the Second World War. He would definitely rather spend his days playing Call of Duty than running North Korea. I know this because I understand 20-year-olds as well as anybody, and running that country is just not on the radar of any of us. Kim Jong Un knows full well he isn’t prepared to oversee a country and that he’s just the face of power until he actually has the capacity to make decisions. He still has all these obligations to talk to people who will tell him what to do, and he has to get his state photographer to shoot photos of him with the generals. He’s just a middle man right now. They make decisions, tell him the verdict and then he signs his name to make it official, but he’s still stuck play-

ing the part of supreme leader without any of the power that a title like that should come with. That sounds like a terrible job. Sure he’s his own boss, but it’s not like he started up a hipster design firm with an office in a loft and hired all of his buddies. He’s still responsible for North Korea, and he’s been outside the country plenty in his young age. He may never leave again, but he knows how the rest of the world operates and knows there are much better countries to run. I see comments about how corrupt Kim Jong Un is because like father like son, but think about it from the perspective that he’s 28 years old. He wants to hit the Pyongyang bars and go clubbing. He probably has no interest in beginning a global incident. That would just mean more work for him. He doesn’t want to stay at the office late on a Friday night. He definitely doesn’t want to have to go back in on Saturday morning. That’s what his job would mean if he started to get aggressive with his southern brothers. He doesn’t want to give himself any more work. He knows life would be easier if he just keeps quiet, and North Korea will probably be a quiet country for a long time.

How will future generations eat? When we start looking toward the future, it appears to be a place with a lot of rather ominous shadows cast over it. In this case the future I am thinking about is not immediate. In fact I am thinking beyond the years I am likely to witness first-hand. While I have fewer than 50 years ahead of me under the best of possible circumstances, I do have children, and hopefully one day grandchildren who will see the start of the next century and beyond. Of course that will only be possible if we, as a global society, come to terms with some massive issues looming on the horizon. On top of the list will be how we grow enough food for our increasing population. There are a couple of constants we know for sure. One is that the world population is growing, and there does not appear to be any controlling that, at least within the foreseeable future. Any efforts in that regard come with massive moral and ethical debates I am not even willing to wade into. The second aspect is those new mouths will need to be fed. And that comes back to farmers. There is finite land to produce food on, a land base which is actually likely to shrink from urban sprawl, desertification, and similar things which are taking acres

Calvin Daniels Trader Agriculture Columnist out of production. Urban sprawl is even happening here in Saskatchewan. Take the city of Yorkton. It has purchased land around the city to facilitate growth in the near future. The land is currently farm land, and while the few quarters in isolation may not seem like the loss of a lot of land to farming, when you multiply it by all the cities around the world, the impact becomes significant rather quickly. Technology is helping to offset land loss and other factors by increasing production. The move to zero-tillage systems, using a better package of crop nutrients, and utilizing precision farming techniques has meant more production from the same acres, at least here in North America. The same tech can transfer to a broader world, of course, and in time it will have to. But that will not happen quickly. There is the issue of the money needed to make that transfer, however, and in time

it will have to happen. Of course, there is also the backlash against high-tech farming. In spite of most of us recognizing the need for more food, with generally full fridges in the developed world, we can stand back and have the debate over whether we should use intensive techniques. Farmers here could grow food for North America using less technology, but to feed a larger world that will not cut it. And the basic issue of food production has other hurdles it will need to overcome. Climate change will mean dramatic changes to what grows where in this world, and how that impacts food production a half-century from now can only be vaguely guessed at. Resources too, are finite. It is a case of when, and not if, oil and gas reserves run out. We assume science will solve that question, but steps in reducing reliance on oil and gas are currently small at best. Add in a reluctance to make any serious effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and agriculture faces a lot of unknowns in the decades ahead. The issues are something world leaders need to start seriously addressing now for the sake of our children, grandchildren, and generations beyond.

Driving etiquette: turning lanes I’m guilty of driving in the right lane even when I’m not going to turn, because turning isn’t always required and I just see it as good forward planning. Especially when I’m driving in Regina and I don’t always know where the traffic is going to be, and if I’m going to be able to get into the lane I need. Consider that today while driving, I nearly side-swiped the crap out of a Cavalier. Fortunately he dodged me like a professional, but things could have ended a lot worse. So I generally try to get into the correct lane right

Tonaya Marr Maybe It’s Just Me off the top. But every time I drive in the right lane, there always seems to be that one, irate hockey mom 15 minutes late to start supper who’s behind me, impatiently smashing her

open palm into the steering wheel. The look on her face suggests that I am keeping the light from changing, and am responsible for her being unable to get into the Walmart parking lot. She always glares at me while

I sit trembling, meeting her icy gaze in my rear view mirror. I usually lock my car doors, in the off chance that she wants to get out and confront me face-to-face. As you can see, it’s a very terrifying time, but I always find myself in this situation. I just want so badly to save myself time and be efficient that I ignore the fact that some people out there just need to stop at Sobeys to pick up a jar of Ragu and I am ruining their lives. At this point, it’s really turned into my personal mission in life. I don’t see it

as a form of torture or anything, so much as a training exercise in patience. These drivers should thank me, because I routinely force them to sit in their Land Rovers and wait longer than they knew was possible. The small trials of patience in their lives following their encounters with me seem that much more relaxing and within their control. I should also point out that this is best done when I’m not driving my own vehicle. With my job in Regina, I drive vehicles that are not my own every day. This makes it great

for me to escape without people being able to track my licence plate. It also helps prevent them from recognizing me later. So you are welcome, angry right turners. And eternally more patient. You are welcome. Tonaya Marr hates it when roles are reversed and she is stuck waiting for someone to move so she can turn. But it wasn’t worth mentioning that in this column. If you have a traffic complaint, e-mail Tonaya at tonaya.marr@ gmail.com or tweet her @ TonayaMarr.

Adjudicators unveiled for Music Festival The Estevan and District Music Festival is back for another year beginning on Tuesday. The festival welcomes participants across the southeast to compete in a number of musical disciplines, with this year’s categories falling into band, from March 13 to 16; piano from March 18 to 23; and voice and speech performances from March 25 to 29. The final concert and awards gala will be held April 3 at 7 p.m. at the Estevan Comprehensive School. Along with the performers, several adjudicators will be on hand for all performances. Adjudicators for the band performances will be Troy Linsley and Dennis Weist. Linsley holds a bachelor of music degree from the University of Saskatchewan where he was fortunate to study with Marvin Eckroth, professor emeritus. Active as a chamber musician, he has performed with the Saskatoon Symphony, the Saskatoon Saxophone Quartet and performed at local, provincial and national festival and conferences. Linsley teaches saxophone at the U of S and maintains a private studio. Active as a clinician and adjudicator, he is often called upon for saxophone and band clinic workshops around the province. For the past several year Linsley has co-ordinated the Saskatchewan Band Association’s summer band camp program in Saskatoon. His wife Marie plays bassoon with the Saskatoon Symphony, and together they have two boys, Nathaniel and Samuel.

This year will mark the first he has played piano in the local music festival when he performs Sailor’s Dance with his six-year-old son Nathaniel. Weist is from Regina, where he began his band studies at the the age of nine. Over the years he has performed in numerous bands in the Regina area including the Intercollegiate Orchestra and the Regina Symphony Orchestra. He graduated from the University of Regina in 1972 with a degree in music education. He worked as an elementary band director and classroom music specialist in Saskatchewan and Alberta from 1972 to 2002. From 1979 to 2002, he taught in Regina Catholic schools. Weist is a member of the Saskatchewan Band Association and a former board member of the Saskatchewan Music Educators’ Association. Weist works as a piano tuner and technician in Regina and area. He has recently expanded the business into a dealership for Hailun pianos. Weist sings in the Regina Philharmonic Chorus and directs the Queen City Brass Band. Margot Sim is one of two who will be adjudicating the piano and vocal portions of the music festival. Sim began her musical training in Winnipeg, achieving performance diplomas in voice (ARCT, LMM); piano (ARCT); organ (ARCT); and recorder (AMM). Furthering her studies at the University of Toronto with Mary Morrison, she received her bachelor of arts and diploma in operatic performance with distinction. As a soloist,

Sim has performed with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Toronto Gilbert and Sullivan Society, Innis College Theatre and the Winnipeg Mennonite Theatre. Sim has also worked with the Canadian Opera Company and the Canadian Opera Company Children’s Chorus. As a Young Artist Tour winner, she performed in recitals across Western Canada with pianist Angela Cheng. An experience teacher, adjudicator and clinician, Sim is currently a voice instructor at the Canadian Mennonite University and she is organist/ choir director at Grace Bible Church. Her students include examination medallists and her choir has been an award winner in the CBC National Choral Competition. She said she loves adjudicating because of the opportunity it gives to encourage musicians of all ages and levels of ability. In her spare time, Sim tries to keep one step ahead of her three daughters. Along with Sim, Lore Ruschiensky of Regina, who began her piano studies in Eston will be adjudicating piano and voice classes. She studied with Dorothy Bee in Regina for her teacher’s associate in piano and received her associate in piano performance while studying in Ottawa. Ruschiensky has continued to pursue further studies in music in piano pedagogy as well as general music studies at the conservatory and university level. She has had the privilege of attending professional development conferences provincially, nationally and internationally on a regular basis.

www.estevanmercury.ca

Ruschiensky has adjudicated extensively in her home province for the Saskatchewan Music Festival and Contemporary Showcase as well as in Alberta. She examines across the country for Conservatory Canada. She has also worked as an accompanist and as a workshop clinician. Ruschiensky has been actively involved in the

tion of Music Teachers’ Association from 19992001 and from 20012008 was the editor of the CFMTA journal The Canadian Music Teacher. Ruschiensky also holds a BA in religious studies from the University of Regina, and she maintains a full studio in Regina teaching all levels of piano and theory in the Conservatory Canada Program.

Should all anniversaries be recognized and celebrated?

He She He She Said

The Oreo turned 100 years old on March 6. It certainly has lasting power and seems to be plugging along just fine in this economy, with a factory in Montreal producing one billion individual Oreos each year. There are so many anniversaries that we could potentially celebrate this year, like any year, that it’s probably easier to just ignore them all. Unless you’re part of the Royal Family or have a Sunday brunch date with the Queen pencilled onto your calendar each week, there probably isn’t much sense in celebrating the Queen’s 60th year as Canada’s head of state and oldest living member of the House of Windsor. Very few of us have worked for Oreo, or whichever company owns the brand, so we have no ties to the black and white cookie that gave its name to one of the forward lines from the first Mighty Ducks movie. For 30 years, Elvis Presley’s Graceland has been open to the public. If you’re a Broadway buff, you may well wish to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Grease. Now it’s only Broadway’s 13th longest running show, but at the time of its closing in New York in 1980, it was the longest running show in Broadway’s history. It’s the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. That involved Brits and Americans more than it did Canadians, but I see the merit of recognizing the historical significance of that event. Let’s just wait another 100 years to check back in. We can skip the 250th marker. Let’s start being a little more choosy about which special days really are special.

Said

I don’t really have a problem with the celebrating stupid things. Consider that I have celebrated it being a Wednesday, and not crashing my car into things on occasions when I just needed a reason to celebrate. So I’m totally fine with celebrating anniversaries of things like Oreos. For one, Oreos are awesome. They’ve been around for 100 years, so they have to be good. And even if they’d only been around for 15 years, Oreos would be worth

celebrating. I’m pretty sure we are conditioned to celebrate stupid things right from birth. When explaining how old their children are for the first two years, parents always seem to say things like “16 months,” and “Oh, she’ll be 20 months next week.” No one ever says “He’s something like one year, give or take a couple of months.” So right from the beginning, we’re told that counting insignificant things is important. Then we all turn into teenagers and suddenly the most important anniversary we celebrate is the number of months we’ve been in a relationship. Celebrating dating three months seems pretty important when you’re 14, but it’s not really something that continues into the rest of your life. Later in life, it’s strictly about years ... and even then, you may not remember the actual date. So there’s nothing wrong with caring that North America’s favourite cookie has reached an age that many of us will never see because of obesity. Obesity because of eating aforementioned cookies. And it only would have made sense to celebrate the birthday of Oreos by eating them until you throw up. I approve.

Winning on the ranch by Norm Park It’s a sprawling operation that has a firm grip on its owners, just because they love it so much. It’s not ever easy to operate a commercial cow/ calf ranch with all its variances without a lot of help , commitment and some pure love of what you’re doing. The Ross family has that in abundance, and for their dedication to this world of raising beef on the hoof, they were presented with one of the coveted awards southeast Saskatchewan can bestow on one of its own, the Farm Family of the Year Award. The Ross family, owners and operators of the Ross L-7 Ranch that is headquartered on the home front just a hop-skip-jump from the United States border south of Estevan, encompasses over 3,000 acres that is familyowned and another 8,000 leased acres throughout the region. This is not just a flyby-night operation either, it is in it’s fourth generation now and expectations are that it will continue along that family vein for some time to come. The main cast of characters is headed up by Brian and Rosalie Ross along with Chad and Crystal Ross and their children Cassidy and Carlee and not to forget Jeremy and Carol and their

12032MS02

Bringing the herd closer to home in the fall and taking them our to pastures every spring is a big job but one that is filled with panoramic views from the hilltops. kids Jaycee, Sydney and Hugh. Then there is Brian’s mother Helen. There are plenty more in the family compact and they all participate and contribute at various times, many of them “coming home” from other parts of the country to enjoy a working and socializing experience.

Sometimes those trips might involve a round-up or a camp out or maybe a little friendly roping and penning competition to maintain the edge and remind them all of their roots. “Our only regret is that Dad (Cyril) isn’t with us to share the moment, but Mom is pretty excited about this

award,” said Brian. The Rosses run a herd of between 600 and 700 cows over that vast acreage that spreads from Torquay to Frobisher and it, of course, comes with all the expected challenges. “We’ve come through so much this past decade, as a family and as an industry,

including the BSE crisis,” said Brian, referring to the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow) disease that surfaced in Alberta in May of 2003 which led to a host of countries shutting down their borders to Canadian cattle and beef until just recently. “But right now it’s looking good for the industry. We’re getting markets back, the prices are good and we’ve just come through a pretty good winter,” said Brian. “Good hay, lots of grass ... we’re just wondering now when is the next wreck coming?” he added with a laugh. “Isn’t that how it is in this business, in this province. Things get going well, so you wonder when the dark side is gonna hit.” Like others, the Ross family encountered some issues with last spring’s floods, but not to the degree that so many others felt. Brian said the freak May snowstorm did more damage to the herd than any flood waters could do later on.They do late calving, starting just around the time the storm struck, so they lost a few head. “We have a late calving season because we bale graze over winter, so we don’t want or need early calving,” said Brian. So while they appreciate their beef, the Ross clan absolutely loves their horses and for good reason. These animals are pretty well part of the family. “I would hate to have to sort cattle without horses. I don’t know how we could do it,” said Brian.

They are proud of their equine family members and make sure they get quality and train them well and when it comes time for a little recreation, you can be sure the Rosses will be saddled up doing it. “We do penning and roping for recreation, our social life revolves around the competition and even the little ones, when it comes time for work, they’re there. The young girls worked around the chutes just the other day,” Brian said, referring to Chad’s daughters. “When you’re working hard, all day, you need two horses anyway. I don’t like to admit it, but I have five horses myself. They get to rest, we don’t,” he said with a chuckle. When it comes time for branding or a fall round-up, working the Ross L-7 herds can become a pretty intense and impressive undertaking. In the spirit of the ranching world, they usually share cowboy and cowgirl time with other ranchers in the district. The history of the Ross operation goes back to 1906 when Lester George Ross and his two brothers from southwest Minnesota arrived in southern Saskatchewan, the province that had just been formed. They set up a mixed farming operation, something that was quite normal in those days. Lester had a farming background, but he liked the idea of mixed farming and with affordable land ready to be worked, it was a good fit. Continued on Page 9

The idea that he could earn some cash breaking (training) horses for the RCMP appealed to him. He met and married Nellie, they raised a family and Brian’s father, Cyril was a product of that union with Creighton and Donald (twins) and Jessie coming along later. “Government programs of the day promoted mixed farming so that’s what grandpa Lester did and so did Dad. Even the marginal land was put into crops,” said Brian. “We know now that was a mistake because they lost what little quality there was in the land but after awhile we all learned from that and the operation grew in strength with cattle,” said Brian. “Dad’s heart was in cattle, especially as he got older we started the switch. Our operation became one of the first to do artificial insemination, it began on this ranch and we were one of the first to bring in a purebred breed, Simmentals. In fact we went purebred for a few years but it was highly labour intensive and as our kids started to get older, we realized we had to get into more general commercial operations and to get ahead in that game you need some numbers, so we expanded the herd.” But by going that route, they also reduced the work load. New techniques such as the bale grazing, even during the tough winter of 2010, has proved worthwhile. “As long as the cattle have windbreaks, and a good bush or tree line will provide that, you can bale graze through the season and the cows contribute to the soil value and as they wander around the top soil improves and therefore the productivity of the land improves with the good natural fertilizer,” Brian said. As the past president

Three generations in the saddle, Brian, Chad and Cyril Ross at a penning competition a few years ago. of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (200406) Brian Ross said he’s been involved in “cowboy politics for over 10 years now.” In fact he was chairman for the committee that helped merge the Beef Information Centre with the Canada Beef Export Federation, to realize about $1 million in savings by allowing them to find some common ground. Now he finds that being out of the political realm of the business, and with the

business end being taken over ever more gradually but continually by the next generation, he’s even had time for a quick trip south. “We took a trip with Rosalie’s sisters, for a week. Squeezing a bit of sand between my toes on a warm beach in February was a new experience for me.” Chad and Crystal are now the 4-H leaders, Jeremy and Carol and kids arrive for the roundups, and branding and penning competitions,

and all the other work and fun times. “All the daughters-inlaws work from a horse just as well as the guys,” said Brian. Stuff like that doesn’t happen by accident. Cowboys and cowgirls have a tendency to find one another, it seems. Their kids are naturals in the saddles and among the herds too. The Ross L-7 legacy appears to be pretty safe for another few decades at least.

Math failure as a child leads to poor decisions as an adult Last weekend Katrina was studying her math on her computer, using a program that was recommended by the school. I’ve heard high praise for it, but have not yet ponied up the $80 subscription to allow her full access to the site. “Daddy, why do I need to know math?” my sevenyear-old asked. “I use math every day,” I told her, explaining that math is important for photography. As an example, I had her turn on all six pot lights in the family room. For six lights, I said, I have my camera set this way. But if you turn off three lights, then there is half the light in the room, and I have to change my camera one F-stop. At the beginning of the school year, Katrina was struggling with very basic arithmetic. She tried to explain it to me, parroting the new math curriculum that made no sense to me whatsoever. The heck with that noise. We pulled out an abacus that my soon-to-be 16-year-old sister used, and we were off to the races. If billions of Asian people used an abacus for math, so can my daughter. It worked. Now she’s getting high marks on her homework. We’ll see how her most recent test pans out. No calculators for my kid just yet. My friend Douglas, who happens to be pretty astute about numbers himself, rails on about the lack of math skills among adults

Brian Zinchuk From the Top of the Pile these days. “People don’t understand math from a consumer level to retirement planning to employment to EVERYTHING,” he says. “Advertising capitalizes on the lack of math skills in the general population. “A couple of years ago, I went to a home show. I was looking at hot tubs. I was curious how much they cost. EVERY vendor was advertising the monthly payment. I don’t care what the payment is! I want to know what the total price is. Based on the posters, they were catering to the general population that is more interested in the monthly payment than the total cost.” I have to agree with Douglas there. Ever notice cars and trucks are now advertised with bi-weekly payments, to hide the true cost? He goes on, “Big box credit cards come with 0 per cent interest for a year. How many people understand the retroactive interest is applied if the ENTIRE balance isn’t paid at the one-year anniversary? “Electric cars! Good deal! How much of a price premium must be paid?

How many litres of fuel could this extra charge pay for? “The banks ask about your income. Everyone boasts their income. I make this! I make that! WHO CARES! How much to you keep at the end of the year? “Are you on the nevernever plan? “If so, it doesn’t mat-

99

$

95

ter how much money you make!” Indeed. And we both feel that the lack of financial knowledge as adults is directly attributable to poor comprehension of math, right from an early age. The provincial Ministry of Education announced Feb. 27 they were seeking feedback on the current math curriculum over the month of March. “Having wrapped up the consultations with educators across Saskatchewan, we’re confident that we have a good idea of their thoughts and opinions around the effective instruction of the math curricu-

lum,” Education Minister Donna Harpauer said in a news release. “Now, we want to hear from parents or guardians of students who are learning this math. What are the experiences and opinions of the parents and guardians whose children are bringing this math home? Hearing from all different selections of the population who are engaging with the math curriculum will help us to understand the areas that are working, as well as identify opportunities for change.” Dear. Ms. Harpauer: This new system of math sucks. If I can’t explain basic arithmetic to my Grade 2

daughter using it, it needs to go. Oh yeah, and I studied calculus during my university days, so I think I get it. In the meantime, I might be buying a subscription to IXL Math for my daughter. If you would like to add your comments, go to the Ministry of Education website at www.education. gov.sk.ca and click on the feature titled “Math Feedback.” The link for math feedback will be operational throughout the month of March. - Brian Zinchuk is editor of Pipeline News.

CUPE presidents expects plenty of labour discussions ahead Provincial SASKATOON - The national president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Paul Moist, says it’s going to be a busy bargaining year for their members. Moist says health care is the biggest public policy issue in Saskatchewan. He says recent surveys suggest that people in Saskatchewan want more public health care services, not private ones. He also says the union’s surveys show that the public value Crown corporations. It’s going to be a busy bargaining year for CUPE Saskatchewan, with almost the majority of collective agreements starting to open this year. Moist says of 154 collective agreements, 108 are open. National

QUEBEC - The federal Transportation Safety Board says Canadians have reason to fear rail security given the troubling similarities between a recent fatal train accident in Ontario and a derailment two years ago in Quebec. Board officials made the observation during a news conference Tuesday in Quebec City, while releasing a report into a crash in February 2010 that injured seven people in StCharles-de-Bellechasse. The report cited a variety of factors behind that crash, including: poor visibility because of snow; poor technology that leaves open the possibility of human error; and improper sharing of medical data that could reveal things like sleep disorders. It said all those factors contributed to the

2010 accident where the Via passenger train burst into a siding track at excessive speed. Almost two years later to the day, there were related factors behind the Via derailment that killed three crew members in Burlington, Ont., on Feb. 26, 2012, board members said. *** OTTAWA - A humanrights group wants the federal government to withdraw a directive permitting Canada’s spy agency to share information even when there’s a real risk it will lead to torture. In a letter to the public safety minister and the head of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Amnesty International Canada says the policy violates Canada’s international obligations to

prevent torture. The government directive outlines instructions for deciding whether to share information when there is a substantial risk that doing so might result in someone in custody being abused. A copy of the secret July 2011 document was recently released under the Access to Information Act. Opposition MPs have roundly denounced the directive, saying there can be no compromise on torture. The government says it strongly opposes the mistreatment of any individual by any foreign agency for any purpose. *** IQALUIT, Nunavut - Nunavut’s former fire marshal says the territorial government knew an apartment block that was the scene of a fatal blaze didn’t meet building codes and did nothing to ensure it got fixed. Tony Noakes, who lost his job in May 2010 after he voiced related concerns, says similar problems exist throughout the territory. “I’m concerned government hasn’t implemented any recommendations I put forward in my

report in 2009,” Noakes, who now lives in Lyndhurst, Ont., said Tuesday. “Maybe something could have been done to save these people. “It’s not a far stretch to say there’s gross negligence here.” At least two people died when the 22-unit block known as White Row went up in flames on the frigid night of Feb. 27. International BERLIN - New figures show a surge of interest in learning German in the countries hardest hit by Europe’s economic woes as Spaniards, Italians and others look to Europe’s biggest economy in search for jobs. Figures from Germany’s culture and language promotion agency, the Goethe Institute, show that the number of Spaniards seeking to learn German in 2011 rose by 35 per cent from 6,500 to about 9,000. The data, obtained by The Associated Press Monday, show that the number of those taking classes with the Goethe Institute Lisbon in Portugal rose 20 per cent to 2,230. In Italy, the number was up by 14

per cent, while in Greece it rose 10 per cent. Many firms in Germany are searching to hire skilled professionals, but a language barrier often hinders successful recruitment. *** BEIRUT - Syria’s president defied mounting international pressure to end the year-old crackdown on an uprising against him and said Tuesday he was determined to go on fighting what he called “foreign-backed terrorism.” After a powerful American senator called for airstrikes on Syria, President Barack Obama said unilateral U.S. military action against President Bashar Assad’s regime would be a mistake. The United States said it is proposing a new United Nations Security Council resolution demanding an end to violence in Syria, first by government forces and then by opposition fighters. Russia and China, powerful allies that have blocked a Security Council resolution against Syria, made clear they were still standing by the regime in Damascus.

back again in a series that has seen every game won by the home team. The winner advances to the league final against the Midale Mustangs, who wrapped up their series against the Wawota Flyers in four games. With the series tied 1-1 entering Game 3 on Wednesday, the Mustangs won that game 5-3 in Wawota to set up a series-clinching 4-3 win on Friday in Midale. Game times and dates for the final series between the Coalers and Mustangs have yet to be announced. In provincial action, the Coalers are the only Big Six team still alive. Bienfait defeated Nokomis 9-3 in the first game of their best-of-three Senior A south final on Friday. Game 2 is this Friday in Nokomis, followed by Game 3 on Sunday in Bienfait, if necessary.

The Bienfait Coalers finished up their tight semi-final series against the Oxbow Huskies with a 3-2 victory at home on Tuesday night. The Coalers will now face the Midale Mustangs in a rematch of last year’s final, in which the Coalers won in the seventh game.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 2012

Mickelson’s career one of the best ever PGA Tour. While Woods cemented his status as either 1 or 1A all-time with 71 victories (and 14 majors) in his first 14 years on tour, Mickelson had to be satisfied with good, but not great. Lately, though, it’s like the two have changed places. There’s Phil, standing on the podium, holding a trophy, kissing his wife and hugging his kids. And there’s the recently divorced and publicly humiliated Tiger - despite the occasional flash of brilliance - shooting a lot of 75s, putting like he’s using a rusted tie rod from

Bruce Penton Sports Columnist a ‘78 Buick, and wondering not whether he’ll ascend to the throne occupied by Jack Nicklaus as the best of all time, not whether he’ll win a major this year, but whether he has what it takes to win a tournament - any tournaME RLE NORMAN .COM

Is it possible a golfer could be rated among the top 10 of all time even though he has never been ranked No. 1 in the world at any time in his career? That’s the question surrounding Phil Mickelson, the sweet-swinging American lefty with the maddening habit of crashing and burning at the most inopportune times but who, in 2012 at the age 41, is showing signs of having one of his best years ever. Mickelson, of course, has been Tiger Woods’ foil for the past 15 years on the

ment - again. Mickelson, slated for induction in the World Golf Hall of Fame this year, had a great California run in February, winning the Pebble Beach Pro-Am by crushing Woods on the final day (64 to 75) and losing in a playoff the following week at Los Angeles. He will definitely be one of the favourites at next month’s Masters, the first major of 2012 and at a golf course, Augusta National, where he has won three of his four majors and missed the top 10 only twice since 2000. Meanwhile, we return to the question: Can Mickelson possibly be ranked among the top 10 greatest golfers of all time despite not being the top golfer of his era? The answer is yes, and here - to give you and your friends something to debate over a beverage after golf’s opening day this spring - are the rankings from someone who is not necessarily a Mickelson fan but who appreciates skill and flair that the Californian lefthander definitely possesses: 1. Jack Nicklaus, until he is dethroned in the “majors” category, if ever; 2. Tiger Woods; 3. Ben Hogan; 4.

That way the whole team’s salary can be covered through hot dog and beer sales at home games.” • Barach again: “Hank Haney says in his book that Tiger Woods was interested in at some point joining the Navy SEALs. Although when it came to women he had the appetite of a shark and the hands of an octopus.” • R.J. Currie of sportsdeke.com: “Reports out of Edmonton say NHL bench boss Tom Renney is still suffering from headaches. No, not from the concussion, from coaching the Oilers.” • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “Former Cal quarterback Joe Ayoob tossed a paper airplane 226 feet, 10 inches - 19 feet longer than the recognized world record - inside a hangar at McClellan Air Force Base in northern California.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 2012

Canada women suffer another defeat to France NATIONAL LARNACA, Cyprus - Another big game with France, another disappointment for the Canadian women’s soccer team. The French have defeated defending champion Canada 2-0 in the final of the Cyprus Cup. France knocked Canada out of the World Cup last July, dominating the Canadian women in a 4-0 win. This time goals by Marie-Laure Delie and Louisa Necib — via penalty — were enough to sink Canada. The French are ranked sixth in the world, one spot above Canada. The two teams came into the final each with 3-0-0 records after winning their respective pools. The French had outscored their opponents 8-1 while Canada had an 8-2 edge. *** SASKATOON - Glenn Howard worked overtime to establish yet another record at the Brier. Ontario’s 7-5 win in an extra end over Saskatchewan on Tuesday marked 175 career games at the Brier for Howard, surpassing the

previous record set by his older brother Russ. It was also Ontario’s fifth extra-end game at this year’s Tim Hortons Brier, so if rounded up . . . “What is that. Is that 176 now?” Glenn Howard asked jokingly. “I can’t quite believe it’s 175 games. That’s a lot of curling. The good news is at least over 50 per cent were wins. It’s pretty neat to say you’ve played more Brier games than anyone in history.” Glenn joined his brother Russ with most Brier appearances at 14 when his team qualified out of Ontario again this year. *** MONTREAL - Coach Jesse Marsch had Davy Arnaud targeted as a potential captain of the Montreal Impact from the day he acquired the hard-working midfielder in a trade. Marsch made it official after practice on Tuesday, naming the 31-year-old as captain for the expansion team’s debut season in Major League Soccer. The Nederland, Tex.

native will wear the captain’s armband for the club’s first MLS match Saturday against the Whitecaps in Vancouver. Marsch said that when he was player in MLS he admired and respected Arnaud’s battling style. *** DRAMMEN, Norway - Canadian cross-country skier Len Valjas had a modest goal of using this week’s World Cup sprint race to crack the top 50 in the overall rankings. He did much more than that. Valjas made his first career World Cup podium appearance Wednesday by winning a silver medal on the 1.2-kilometre course. “I don’t think it has sunk in yet, but it does feel pretty good,” he said. “I think I may be a little in shock.”

INTERNATIONAL LONDON - The British government has rejected a warning by the Olympic team’s top doctor that shaking hands should be avoided at the London Games.

The British Olympic Association’s chief medical officer said athletes should avoid physical contact while greeting rivals and visiting dignitaries at this summer’s games because it could spread germs. The British government, though, is perplexed at the warning from Dr. Ian McCurdie. “It goes without saying that we should all wash our hands regularly to keep them clean and prevent spreading bugs,” the Department of Health said in a statement Tuesday. “But there’s no reason why people shouldn’t shake hands at the Olympics.” Athletes also seemed unconvinced. *** To Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott, the thousands of dollars New Orleans Saints players were paid under their bounty system from 2009-11 is not all that different from the helmet stickers handed out at lower levels of the game. Little rewards for big plays are as much a part of football as runs and passes.

“I never played the game to take away somebody’s livelihood. Have I hurt people? Yes. I got paid to make interceptions. I got paid to cause fumbles. And I got paid to make big hits,” said Lott, who was with the 49ers, Raiders and Jets during his NFL career from 1981-94. “It goes back to when I was 10. Somebody said that if you did one of those things, you would get a sticker on your helmet. In college, they gave you that recognition if you did well,” Lott said in a telephone interview Monday. “So, no. I’m not really surprised by it.” Nor, it seems, should anyone. *** INDIANAPOLIS - Peyton Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay have returned to Indianapolis together on a plane amid reports that the team and the star quarterback will be parting ways. Manning spoke briefly to a small group of reporters at the Indianapolis airport Tuesday night, but didn’t address questions about his future with the Colts. “We’ll see y’all tomorrow,” Manning said. “We’re good. We’ll talk tomorrow. We’ll do it all right tomorrow.”

Citing anonymous sources, ESPN reported earlier Tuesday that the Colts plan to hold a news conference to announce a long-expected decision that they will release the fourtime MVP rather than pay him a $28 million bonus. *** HARRISBURG, Pa. - Jerry Sandusky will get about 581 pages of secret grand jury testimony before the start of his pending trial on child sexual abuse charges, but not as soon as he had requested, under a judge’s order made public on Wednesday. Judge Barry Feudale’s three-page order said “the interests of justice” would be served by providing the records earlier than required under state trial rules. He said the estimate of 581 pages was based on a list of witnesses that state prosecutors have told him may be called to the stand in Sandusky’s trial on 52 criminal counts. The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach remains on home confinement while he awaits trial, currently scheduled to

begin in Bellefonte with jury selection on May 14. He has denied the allegations.

Pink Shirt Day Spruce Ridge School held its Pink Shirt Day on Feb. 29 with an assembly that focussed on bullying, and in particular cyberbullying. A few students also organized a skit showing the effects of bullying shown above.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time to reassess important relationships, both personal and professional, to see where problems might exist and how they can be overcome. Keep communication lines open. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s not easy to bring order to a chaotic situation, whether it’s in the workplace or at home. But if anyone can do it, you can. A pleasant surprise awaits you by week’s end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful that you don’t make an upcoming decision solely on the word of those who might have their own reasons for wanting you to act as they suggest. Check things out for yourself. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A personal relationship that seems to be going nowhere could be restarted once you know why it stalled. An honest discussion could result in some surprising revelations. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That unexpected attack of self-doubt could be a way of warning yourself to go slow before making a

career-changing decision. Take more time to do a closer study of the facts. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A workplace problem needs your attention, now, before it deteriorates to a point beyond repair. A trusted third party could be helpful in closing the gaps that have opened. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A recent family situation could give rise to a new problem. Keep an open mind and avoid making judgments about anyone’s motives until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Rely on your always-sharp intuition to alert you to potential problems with someone’s attempt to explain away the circumstances behind a puzzling incident. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although you still need to do some snipping off of those lingering loose ends from a past project, you can begin moving on to something else. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) With your self-confidence levels rising, you should feel quite

comfortable with agreeing to take on a possibly troublesome, but potentially wellrewarded, situation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Travel is favored, both for business and for fun. The end of the week brings news about an upcoming project that could lead toward that promised career change. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might feel suddenly overwhelmed by a flood of responsibilities. But if you deal with each one in its turn, you’ll soon be able to hold your head above water and move on. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful way of offering comfort as well as guidance. You would do well in the healing arts. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Use shower caps to stow shoes when on the move

• Use a muffin pan to make cookie cups for ice cream or fruit. Just flip your muffin pan over, and press dough over the upturned wells. It will puff up a little,

but once it settles will make very nice bowls. I do this with pizza dough as well. Prebake for a few minutes to form the bowl, then fill with ingredients and complete baking. • If you can put a tension rod in the cabinet under your sink, you can use it to hang spray bottles for extra storage. It’s amazing how much space it clears up, and

it’s easy to find the bottle you need. • Got popcorn? For a healthier (and much less expensive) version, go old school: Put popping-corn kernels in a regular brown paper bag, seal bag, then microwave. • “Bread tags (the little plastic clips that hold bread bags closed) make great cord organizers when you

are using a multiple-outlet power strip. Write the kind of device (e.g. TV, VCR, Wii) on the tag, then clip it to the plug end of the cord. When you need to unplug, it’ll be easy to see which is which.” -- C.C. in Ohio • Travel a lot? Make use of those shower caps by pairing up shoes and using the shower cap to hold them together while

simultaneously protecting your clothes from the shoe bottoms. Smart! • “I make plenty of cupcakes for my children’s various events, but I kept having unreturned cupcake carriers. Those things are expensive! I make my own now, using a box lid. The lids for paper cartons work really well. Cut a cross into the lid top with a razor or carpet knife, and

Remember Your Loved Ones with a Memorial Tribute in The Estevan Mercury

Oatmeal Raisin Muffins Somehow, muffins seem to fit the bill for a filling breakfast, a tasty snack and even as an offering for dessert. These muffins are no exception!

Richard (Dick) Weisgerber April 28, 1946 - February 26, 2012 It is with heavy hearts we tell you that Richard passed away suddenly at his home on Sunday, February 26, 2012 at the age of 65 years. Dick was born in Regina on April 28, 1946 to Elizabeth and Christian Weisgerber. On October 12, 1984, Dick married Joanne (nee Ganje) and from this wonderful union had two great children, Stephen and Stephanie. Dick was a loving and great husband and father. He loved to tease and laugh. He was a very kind, generous, soft spoken and hard-working man. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and co-workers. Dick’s entire career was spent working in the field of insurance beginning with SGI and dedicating over 37 years as an insurance broker with Western Financial Group, formerly Border Bannatyne Insurance in Estevan. He was very dedicated to his job where he worked tirelessly to serve his clients. Dick is survived and cherished by loving his family members; his wife, Joanne; son, Stephen and daughter, Stephanie; siblings: Chris (Rosemary), Evelyn (Fred) Weekes, Carey (Allan) Furey, Mike (Pat), Gloria (Leon) Wollbaum; mother-in-law, Bella Ganje; brothers-in-law, Darcy (Mary Jane) Ganje, David (Cheryl) Ganje; sister-in-law, Mona Ganje; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Dick was predeceased by his parents, Christian and Elizabeth Weisgerber; father-in-law, Michael Ganje and brotherin-law, Les Ganje. Prayers were held at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church, Estevan on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. with Mr. Doug Third as Officiant. Funeral Mass was celebrated on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church, Estevan with Celebrant Rev. Joel Rama, Concelebrants Rev. Peter Nijssen, Rev. Thomas Mutavanattu and Rev. Stephen Bill. Those wishing to do so may make donations in Richard’s memory to the New Estevan Regional Nursing Home, 1201 - 2nd Street, Estevan, SK S4A 0M1 or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan, 279 - 3rd Avenue North, Saskatoon, SK S7K 2H8. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Hall Funeral Services, Estevan.

Autographed Baseball Q: I have an All-Star baseball signed by Joe Torre and others. I am enclosing a picture and hope you can provide me with additional information. -- Linda, Richibucto, Canada A: I examined the picture, and I believe the signatures on your baseball are stamped and not genuine. Several of the signatures go into the sewn part of the ball, and they appear too uniform. I recommend you show the ball to several dealers in your region for their professional opinion. *** Q: During my husband’s tour of duty in Europe during World War II, he purchased some small wood carvings, two of which are marked. Would they be of interest to a collector? -- Lila, Billings, Mont. A: I was unable to find the marks you sent me in any of my references. This doesn’t mean they have no value. To determine exactly what they might be worth, the time has come to consult a professional appraiser, and you should expect to pay for this service. Donald Hull of the Hull and Allen Auction Group is a local certified appraiser and might be able to help you. His contact information is P.O. Box 31122, Billings, MT 31122, and www.hullandallen.com. *** Q: I have a 1953 Prairie Farmer WLS Family Album in excellent condition. What is its value? -- Herb, Lombard, Ill.

A: WLS Radio signed on the air in Chicago in 1924. It broadcast with 50,000 watts and was a clear channel. Because of this massive footprint, the broadcasts could be heard throughout the East and Midwest. One of the station’s most popular programs was the “WLS Barn Dance,” which originated at the 8th Street Theater in Chicago. As WLS approached its 30th anniversary in 1954, the station published the souvenir booklet you own. It is worth about $25. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@aol.com. Due to the large volume of mail he receives, Mr. Cox is unable to personally answer all reader questions. Do not send any materials requiring return mail. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

The Expats plays out like a classic spy tale

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

“The Expats” by Chris Pavone (Crown Publishers, $26) Reviewed by Rose M. Croke

Kate Moore’s life in Washington, D.C., might appear normal, but she is hiding a secret life working as an analyst and former operative for the CIA. When her husband is offered a lucrative job in Luxembourg, Kate welcomes the opportunity to start fresh and leave behind her double life. She reinvents herself as an expatriate, or “expat,” and

a stay-at-home mother, who fills her days with household chores, afternoon play dates, and lunch or coffee with other expat mothers. As her husband works increasingly long hours at a job Kate has never understood and for an employer she doesn’t know, her isolation and loneliness grows and doubts arise about her marriage. When a mysteri-

ous American couple arrives in Luxembourg, Kate becomes convinced that they are not who they claim to be, and she fears her past life has finally caught up to her. Kate uses her skills as a spy to uncover the secrets of the people who surround her, including her own husband, who harbors the biggest secret of all. Kate soon finds herself mired in

layers of deceit so deep and multi-layered, they threaten her family, her marriage and even her life. Author Chris Pavone is firing on all cylinders in his debut novel. He slowly builds tension and methodically crafts a story with an end game that is so elaborately executed, readers will shake their heads in awe and disbelief. No one -- not a single character -- is who she or he appears to be. The plot twists come fast and furious

with the action building to a spectacular climax. Pavone writes convincingly from the female perspective, and readers of both women’s fiction and espionage thrillers will enjoy “The Expats.” Kate Moore is a full-dimensional female protagonist who, in spite of living a daily charade, will stop at nothing to protect and defend her family.
