New lots, park on horizon in Bienfait With all the action happening in Southeast Saskatchewan, Bienfait is now looking to get involved with a development that will bring in 14 new residential lots. A public meeting at the Legion in Bienfait was held Oct. 12, to allow residents the opportunity to see the latest proposals for a new housing development and give some comments on the two proposals presented by developers. The block between Young Street and White Street is where the proposal for a new park and the new lots is being planned. As the lots were drawn on the suggested proposal, the size for lots will be about 47 feet by 140 feet deep or 47 feet by 130 feet, while those that face Carbon Avenue will be 58 feet by 129 feet deep. Eric Salmers, of Salmers Contracting Inc., presented two options, one which was heavily favoured, and led discussion with about 30 residents who attended the meeting. Salmers and Turnbull Excavating are the developers for the project. A paved road connecting Souris Ave and Carbon Ave was incorporated into the main proposal, as well as a lane connecting that new street to White Street. Salmers said that the residents have the most input as far as what the green space is used for. It could be used for a pool, or a full-size soccer or football field, he suggested. One issue that brought some concerns from the audience was that of the pool. There is currently a park that

Eric Salmers, of Salmers Construction, led the meeting at the Bienfait Legion regarding the new residential development in the town. With his company currently set to develop the area, he presented two proposals to the residents in attendance Oct. 12. includes a pool at the corner of Young Street and Carbon Avenue. Under the most desired proposal, the park would be relocated just south of the Bienfait Museum and cover a space of 350 feet by 179 feet. The ground where the park currently sits would be converted to residential lots. Most of the comments at the meeting were in favour of installing a new pool in this park. It was noted at the meeting that the current pool is experiencing some problems with one of the walls, and that in a couple of years it will be eroded away. There was some question about putting a soccer field in the new space. Salmers said, “You could do just about anything. You could do a soccer fieldfootball field combination, but if you did that, you wouldn’t have enough room to do a pool and a playground.” It was noted there is a soccer field at the Weldon School. Salmers said they would be building homes on lots for people to buy. He said the

houses they would build will be between 1,000 and 1,500 squared feet and would include bungalow, starter homes as well as more upscale models. There was a suggestion that some of the lots would be left vacant, so people who so desired could buy the lot and build a home themselves. It was noted that the town may have to enact an architectural control policy to make sure the homes are in keeping with the rest of the community. Salmers called Bienfait a perfect satellite community for Estevan. The message was repeated by several at the meeting that with the amount of energy jobs in the area, many of which are as close to Bienfait as Estevan, there is no reason Bienfait can’t take advantage of the growth in the southeast. With accommodation problems in the Energy City, communities like Bienfait can provide lots of opportunities for new housing. One problem that was brought up in the meeting was that Bienfait is nearly exhausted of land available for the town and that it is kind of trapped by rail lines on three sides. Land will have to be annexed if they are going to continue to develop new areas. Residents at the meeting asked about the possibility of developing west of the town by Weldon School, but it was noted the town has no land west of the school. The water and sewer plans in Bienfait are being updated by a firm in Regina, and Salmers, “In a month or so we should hear back from them whether everything is OK, what things need to be improved. We do kind of need that information, so we know what direction we’re going.” As far as a timeline for the beginning of construction, Salmers said, construction could get going in the spring if proposals get approved, and it would likely be a couple of years before all the lots were developed. There will be further discussion amongst the public, the town and developers as to what the final plans will be, though the latest proposal didn’t receive any vocal objections during the meeting.

New port of entry gets recognized The ribbon has been cut on the new land port of entry at Noonan, with a small ceremony and facility tours. About 20 people packed into the inspection garage for the ceremony Oct. 18 and to hear from Mary Delaquis, the area port director of Pembina U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and Eugene Schied, assistant commissioner for the Office of Administration of U.S. CBP. About $420 million was appropriated through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, to update or build 31 of the 41 CBP-owned land ports of entry in the United States. Schied noted that port buildings have been constructed regularly in difficult economic times, with largescale projects to provide new land ports of entry in the 1930s and 1960s. Schied said most of the individual projects were between $10 and $15 million, though he didn’t have a specific figure for the Noonan port. He added that it was difficult to put an exact dollar figure on one site, as some costs were combined into all the projects, like design. Those practices allowed them to “scrunch” the dollar, he said. “We did the design centrally, and then replicated the design, so we have one design contract. A lot of the environmental work was done centrally,” said Schied. “Each of the construction projects was done on a project-by-project basis.” The upgrades are primarily about securing the border, and a media release also noted that the CBP continues to deploy unmanned aircraft over 950 miles of the northern border from Washington to Minnesota, including the skies above the North Portal and Noonan ports. Delaquis said operationally, the upgrades include the ability to have two lanes of traffic come through the port, and also radiation monitors. “We have radiation floor monitors in place that are strategically located so that every vehicle has to

The new border station has been operational since August. go through the screening,” she said. Schied said that “quite a lot of change, and quite a lot of investment went into this.” Delaquis said advancements to their computer system are being constantly made and the new infrastructure they now have will make those easier to do. She noted the old building was constructed long before they knew there would be a need for computers. The new document scanners should make going through the port quicker, which is one of the things

they looked at very closely when setting up the new building: getting people through the port with ease. “Documents can now be scanned, passports, you scan them right through. It will improve your processing time. That’s one of our goals, to make sure the travellers that are arriving, we identify who you are, and should you be admitted into the United States or else you should be welcomed back. And if not, we’re going to take responsibility for that.” The previous facility did not meet CBP’s current

operational mission, and it underwent little renovation, despite growing security challenges, particularly in the last decade. The previous port building, built in 1961, was 1,637 square feet, while the new building stands at 8,489 square feet, with a supplemental inspection building sitting at around 1,350 square feet. The building includes an enforcement area with two holding cells, one interview room and a search room. The Noonan port has seen 2,961 commercial vehicles pass through in 2011 as of Sept. 30 and 35,887 privately-owned vehicles, and there are always at least two people on staff. “It is one of our busiest areas, with what we’ve seen in increases of traffic in the last year or so, especially with the oilfield industry,” said Delaquis, noting, “A lot of the commercial vehicles we get are empty.” Delaquis recalled an incident where someone approached the previous port facility, only to drive through, claiming that they thought it was a gas station. Now she said, “We look distinguished. We look good. We look professional and we look inviting. This is a beautiful facility that recognizes the important work we do on our nation’s border.” Delaquis noted that the new holding cells allow some privacy for individuals who require further searches of their cars. Being able to

place an individual in a cell means they aren’t subjected to the prying eyes of other motorists who are moving through the station, she said, but also keeps everyone safer. “We can secure them so we can go about not only conducting the rest of our search but securing the rest of the travellers. If you’re

sitting someone down in the main lobby of our building, sometimes that’s a little disruptive, and we don’t necessarily have the control that we’d like to have.” She also noted that facility is much more environmentally sound, with power being provided by both solar panels and geothermal energy.

Perspective

Every parent has a favourite Science says that my parents have a favourite child and probably so do yours. I read an article recently, adapted from the book The Sibling Effect by Jeffrey Kluger, about how all parents have a favourite child. The article’s stats say 65 per cent of mothers and 70 per cent of fathers outwardly exhibit a preference for one child, and probably a majority of those other 30 per cent just hide those preferences and never admit it. The others won’t admit it to a researcher doing a study, and they definitely won’t admit it to their children. It got me thinking about how I stack up against my four siblings in our parents’ eyes. In some ways not being the favourite is a good thing. In some cases the favourite is the favourite because a parent sees it as the least likely to survive on its own. My parents may not have doted endlessly on a six-year-old me because they already new I was tough stuff and could handle the world beyond. The bad is that in most cases, favouritism develops as parents decide who is most likely to be outstanding, and they decide to put most of their eggs into that basket in the hopes of developing one extraordinary person. I wasn’t fingered early on as the exceptional genius that could bring great

Jordan Baker Thoughts From My Fingers things to the Baker name. I’m the second child, but it’s the first child who often receives favouritism. It’s natural to desire that something one puts the most time and money into becomes a success, and there will always have been more money and effort gone into the first child. That sounds like it applies to my siblings. My older sister is the most effortlessly successful of us kids. She got a degree, got a job right out of school and has moved on to more schooling, expecting a new career in the health field that has some pretty good prospects. I did a victory high school lap before going to college, only received a diploma and have spent time collecting employment insurance. One of my brothers didn’t finish his college program and has recently restarted his education, and the other finished a one-year program and is without a job in his field. All three of us boys moved back home immediately following post-

secondary school. My youngest sister is still in high school, so she has to at least graduate before she can be considered any kind of success story. The article also pointed to how the youngest boy in a family needs to develop certain abilities to disarm the larger kids in a playroom, and I don’t mean an awesome arm hold. My youngest brother is certainly the most charming of the three boys. Mom definitely appreciates his disarming charm more than my smarmy sarcasm. In turns out a lot of kids are very perceptive to either being treated better or worse than a sibling. While the simplest formula for figuring out those who are the parental favourites sums up as Mom likes the eldest boy and Dad the youngest girl, I think my mom favours the youngest boy and dad the oldest girl. I asked my oldest sister what she thought and she confirmed my intuition, adding that maybe Mom likes me best, but I think she just didn’t want to hurt my feelings by not giving me some consideration. My parents can feel free to use the comment section on our website to voice their opinion. The only way to be sure is to ask my parents themselves to be honest and fess up to which of us they like more. I’ll keep my fingers crossed, but I won’t hold my breath.

Don’t take your food for granted If there is one thing most of us in Canada, and most of the industrialized world, take for granted, it’s our food. We are completely sure that anytime we go to a local grocery store, the shelves will be lined with food, and again, for most of us, we have the money to buy good quality food to ensure we are not hungry at the end of the day. Given that is the case for most in North America, I suppose it’s not too surprising that World Food Day came and went with few paying attention to it at all. Most of us are not likely to know the day was Monday (Oct. 16), and the theme of this year’s day was Food Prices - From Crisis to Stability. We may not know about the day, but the theme may resonate with consumers. There is a feeling that our food costs are too high, although the reasons for that may be somewhat misunderstood. To begin with, food costs are not the result of what farmers are paid. In fact in most cases, even with generally better commodity prices, what farmers are paid is an

Calvin Daniels Trader Agriculture Columnist insignificant element of food costs in the store. For example, wheat is a small part of the cost of a loaf of bread. Most of the costs go into processing, wages and transportation between the farm gate and the kitchen table. There is also a general belief we spend more on food than is actually the case. We take the grocery store bill and look at it as a food cost, but it generally includes everything from laundry soap to razor blades and the local newspaper. Those things add to the cost of the grocery cart. Then there is the fact fewer and fewer of us do a lot to directly impact our food costs. In the past I have talked about how home gardens are increasingly rare, with few having a store of home-grown food canned,

frozen and ready for winter. In many cases we are even losing the skills to cook at home, relying on ready to eat food options, that are more highly processed, and often more costly as a result. With that said, the theme for World Food Day, Food Prices - From Crisis to Stability was chosen to show the impact food price swings pose for the world’s most vulnerable peoples. Food may not be an issue for most reading this column, but many people in our world are starving, and as the population grows and arable land shrinks, the number of starving may well grow. In North America we also have food concerns surrounding ideas about safety and sustainability. With all the issues around food, we might expect World Food Day to be more recognized, with more events around it to help focus attention on the issues. Perhaps in the future we will start the process to raise the importance of the day, and to start dealing with the existing issues of having safe, affordable food for all of us.

The many faces of airplane people I’ve been pretty lucky to have had mostly positive experiences flying. Not to say that there haven’t been times where I could smell the unwashed hair of my neightbour, and that one time when I drooled on myself in my sleep while travelling to Europe with the school. But other than that, my flights have mostly gone well. And I don’t think anyone saw me drooling. Seriously though, I usually sit with interesting people. One time, I sat with a young doctor who had travelled the world with her husband. Another time I was seated with a bunch of young men travelling to the Minot Air Base. Once I travelled with a man who claimed to be an Olympic track coach and who gave me life advice that I’ll never forget, though I haven’t really listened to most of it (and it turns out I should have). My point is: there are often super cool people on flights and I usually, somehow, get to sit with them. And being that I’m annoying (a journalist-in-training thing) I usually can get them talking. There are also lots of other people on the plane, and after flying to and from St. Louis over the Thanksgiving

Tonaya Marr Maybe It’s Just Me weekend, I’ve noticed that there are always at least four of the same types of people on every single flight. For example: The Facts Guy. This guy (or woman, this isn’t really gender-specific) knows all kinds of garbage that most people will never want to know.And he wants to share it with anyone who will listen and, just as often, with those who aren’t listening at all. The Facts Guy will loudly ramble on about the Wright brothers and the Zeppelins well beyond the point when a normally polite person turns away and puts on his or her headphones. The Facts Guy normally has a loud, odd voice, and he wants to impress you. For hours. Non-stop. There’s also The Canadian. If you’ve ever been on an American flight, you might know what I’m talking about. The Canadian is the woman wearing the earrings with beavers on them (not exaggerating). She isn’t loud and demanding, and she will apologize if she accidentally bumps into you with her appropriately-sized carry-on

luggage, even though it was not her fault. I always instinctively like the Canadian, and secretly covet her earrings. Another gem: The Baby’s Mother. There is a baby on every flight and the mother spends the entire trip freaking out in fear that her offspring might start squawking and draw the stink-eye from every person on-board. She sees the sighs and eye-rolls from those seated next to her and is on constant alert. She notices that the smile of

the man in front of her fades a bit after he passes back the soother the baby chucked for the ninth time. The Baby’s Mother knows that if anyone gets a whiff of a questionable scent, the blame falls on her and her child. So she spends the entire two-hour flight sniffing, playing, juggling and feeding her baby like it’s an offensive time-bomb set to go off at any second. My personal favourite is The Person Who Hates Babies and she’s always sit-

ting in close proximity of a child. I once witnessed The Person Who Hates Babies surrounded by three infants, two of whom screamed/ stunk the entire flight. That unfortunate girl shrunk low into her seat, watched Will Ferrell movies on her iMac, and sent the aforementioned stink-eye in all directions. Hilarious. To conclude, flying is awesome. Except for taking off, landing and being in the air. But the socializing aspect

is great. Plus all the labelling people into neat, little categories is fun. Or maybe that’s just me? Tonaya hopes you all noticed that she worked her column’s title into the end of this week’s edition. She’s been trying to do that for ages. Kind of cheesy? Let her know by e-mailing her at tonaya. marr@gmail.com. You can also follow her @tellemarr on Twitter, where she has been known to say nothing of importance.

What do you think of Jesusween?

He She He She

Halloween is coming up and Jesusween is a movement to make the day more religious by handing out Bibles to trick-or-treaters instead of candy on Oct. 31, and spreading the gospel to youth. I’m not sure they will consider that a treat or a trick. First off, Halloween is all about giving junk to kids, so why not throw in a Bible for good measure? If you thought handing out apples at Halloween got you some crooked looks from unhappy pirates and fairies, or whatever kids dress up like now, but if you hand them a Bible that look is probably going to be many times more venomous. Whether you’re religious or not, Bibles aren’t fun, and that’s exactly what Halloween is. It’s no easy feat to mix something kids love, with something kids probably consider a chore. Either way, Scripture is probably something that is a little mature to be giving a child who is dressed up as a dinosaur wearing snow pants. I remember an uncle in the U. S. saying he had a bit of a problem with his son reciting the Pledge of Allegience because it had some pretty powerful words my cousin couldn’t possibly comprehend. Well, religion is about as appropriate as that for children. I remember Halloween as being lots of fun when I was a kid. It was like Christmas, but you had to put in the work to get your gifts by laboriously trudging from one house to the next. It made receiving the candy all the more rewarding. Jesusween is going to spoil all that fun. There are plenty of days that are marked for religious reasons and parents, if they so choose, can teach their children about those traditions at that time. It’s true that religious holidays are losing their meaning in our modern world, but I don’t think Halloween was originally a celebration of something from the Bible. So rather than pilfering secular holidays religious people should probably be doing more to strengthen the traditions of the days they already have.

Jesusween, a movement to give Christian works away on Oct. 31 rather than buying costumes and candy, is essentially pointless. It isn’t going to replace Halloween, which I understand to be one of the motives. Halloween has lasted this long, and all I can see happening is a couple more Christian books being recycled Nov. 1. I remember returning from trick-or-treating every year and sitting in the living room with my sisters to take stock of the cool Halloween candy we’d received that evening. It was a fun and special time during which we’d brag about how many full-size Twix bars we’d gotten and, at least in my case, “trade” away some of the less desirable treats. And if someone had somehow slipped a Bible in among my candy, it was either disregarded among the half-opened Tootsie rolls, or recycled, because even as a child I was environmentally-minded. My own current religious views aside, I didn’t ignore Scripture-among-mycandy when I was a kid because I hated religion or anything like that. I just wasn’t interested in some passive-aggressive preaching when I had sweets to be munching. I wasn’t the only kid like that, and I know for a fact that many of the children I used to venture out with would skip over houses that were notorious for leaving Bibles on the step. Bibles aren’t candy. And so we didn’t want them for Halloween, a night devoted strictly to candy. Even in Saskatchewan, when too often we have to pull our costumes on over our snowsuits, Halloween is a blast. Jesusween is against wearing costumes. Even at my advanced age, wearing a costume on Halloween is hilarious fun, and I think the overwhelming majority would prefer to spend their money on a fun night out than a couple of novels to pass around to people who aren’t going to read them. And the people who would read them probably already have a copy. So it’s just a waste of time.

A warm bowl of goodness Well friends, I’ve just read an article that says Western Canadians can expect one of the top three coldest winters in the last 20 years. As someone who moved from the sunny shores of Australia to Canada, I can assure you that the article was not read with joy nor excitement. As I wrote in an earlier article, the seasons of life, whether in nature or personally, will come and go and I realize that there is nothing neither you nor I can do anything to change what lies ahead. Rather, we need to prepare and equip ourselves for what is predicted to be a long and very cold winter. With that in mind, I am reminded about the breakfast I prepared for our family this morning. I like to send my kids off to school well fed, with something stuck to their ribs. Studies prove that children who have a good breakfast are able to learn better, to focus more and to simply manage their day better. Studies also show that fewer and fewer children are arriving at school well fed. Schools and communities are now

Susan Sohn Welcome to Real Life offering breakfast programs because the need for breakfast is so important. Getting up in the morning is a struggle for most people. We seem to be over charged and under-rested; it’s just a symptom of the society we are living in. I have made a choice to make sure I get up earlier than my children every morning. I do this for a number of reasons: 1) The morning is my favourite time of the day. I love the quiet of the morning and it allows me time to focus for my day and prepare. 2) I love making sure my children have a good breakfast and that I pack them a healthy lunch. It takes planning and discipline. Discipline, because many days (especially cold winter mornings) hitting the snooze

button feels like the right thing to do yet it never is. Today, as I rose from my warm, comfy bed, I could feel the chill in the air. I knew today was a day for a warm bowl of goodness. Yes, today kicked off what will be many mornings where my children will be greeted with a warm bowl of porridge - porridge that is lightly sprinkled with brown sugar and finished off with a splash of warm milk. This, coupled with a slice of buttered toast, in my books, is the best way to start a chilly fall or cold winter day. Porridge is a wonderful meal that can be made ever so simply or, if you want to jazz it up you can do so with flax, fibre, raisins, cranberries, nuts or anything else that works for your family. It may seem like a lot of work in the

morning but really it only takes a few minutes longer than preparing a bowl of cereal. Also, if you’re clever, you can learn how to make slow cooker porridge (I’ve never mastered this) which means it cooks overnight and is ready to go when you wake up. A warm bowl of goodness is the perfect way to send your children off

to school when there’s a chill in the air. Not only is it good for their growing bodies, it helps in so many other ways and it’s budget friendly. Make a little extra and treat yourself ... trust me, you won’t regret it. As we all prepare for the cold winter mornings ahead, make sure you add oats to your shopping list. P.S. Stay tuned next

week, I’ll be sharing information about our family room Princess Cruise that will be setting sail March 24 from Fort Lauderdale ... exciting and everyone is invited! Susan J. Sohn susanjsohn.com/thefamilyroom susanjsohn@yahoo. ca

Pipelines like Keystone XL are safest for environment As I read more and more about the opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline, particularly in Nebraska, I am becoming increasingly convinced there is something in their water - and it isn’t oil. The hyperbole has grown to a point of being completely insane, particularly regarding the environmental protection aspect. My experience in the oilfield wasn’t on drilling rigs, but building pipelines. While this term isn’t often used, it should be these were transcontinental pipelines, in the same way the railroads spanned the continent. I spent the better part of two years on the Alliance Pipeline, which ran from Fort St. John, B.C., to Chicago,

Brian Zinchuk From the Top of the Pile and a good chunk of the year prior to that working on Enbridge’s Terrace B expansion. I have worked on, or beside, nearly every single crew on the pipeline. There is precious little I have not been exposed to. And as an experienced pipeliner, I can tell you this: nearly all the hysteria is hogwash. For example, every truck you see carries great big white cotton pads to

catch or clean up any spill from a piece of equipment. If there’s a hydraulic leak, you jump on it with these pads immediately. At one point one of those projects came across a bird’s nest in on the prairie near Regina. So they spent $150,000 or so to drill a road bore UNDER THE NEST. That’s a crew of about 12 guys and five pieces of equipment for the road bore crew. Then they had to bring in a tie-

11104DE00

in crew of four welders, four welders’ helpers, five or six sideboom operators and their accompanying sidebooms, a foreman and bus driver. All of this for a bird’s nest. To protect the environment, pipeline owners and pipeline construction contractors spend millions of dollars on every project to avoid sensitive grasslands, sensitive watercourses, sensitive breeding and migration routes. It used to be that pipelines were built in the summer, the easiest season to build in. Now for projects like this you cannot strip topsoil between May and August in Canada due to concerns over nesting birds. If your topsoil was not stripped beforehand, you can’t do the work until Aug. 1. The main lines have aerial over-flights every day or just about every day, looking for leaks. I was buzzed every day, I recall, when working on the line. Smaller pipelines are also over-flown regularly. This is in addition to sophisticated monitoring systems and frequent remotely-operated shutoff valves that are meant to shut down the flow very quickly after any leak is detected. And the Nebraskans

eal

as we know them, would grind to a halt for lack of fuel and the products made from petrochemicals. The safest route is selected considering population density and access; and ecological protection is chosen in the planning stages. All these things are deeply considered long before the route is decided upon. In the end, environmental opposition from landowners often boils down to economic compensation for land access. As for the crazies? It shows the American psyche can be whipped up into such a frenzy, there is no reasoning to be had. Unless you want to go back to wool and wood and horse-drawn cart, let the pipeline be built. Brian Zinchuk is editor of Pipeline News. He can be reached at brian. zinchuk@sasktel.net

think they’re concerned about the environment? Pipelines are the safest way known to man to move hydrocarbon materials in either liquefied or gaseous states. Pipelines have a better safety track record than rail, sea or road. The reason no one has really squawked about them for the last 60 years is exactly because of their inherent safety record. Keystone XL is supposed to carry 830,000 barrels a day of bitumen. In North Dakota, where there is insufficient pipeline infrastructure, unit trains are being loaded with 60,000 barrels of oil on each train. You would need 14 trains each and every day running from Fort McMurray to Texas, through blizzards, floods, and -40 C weather, to equate the carrying capacity of Keystone XL’s 36inch pipeline. How many of those trains (5,110 per year; 204,400 trains over the next 40 years) do you think you can run before you have a major derailment? The pipeline infrastructure is largely responsible for our economic well-being. It is as important to our economy in North America as the blood in our veins. Without pipelines, our lives

Transgendered bathrooms on the way Provincial WINNIPEG - Students at some universities on the Prairies are pushing for gender-neutral washrooms for transgendered people who don’t feel comfortable having to choose between bathrooms for men or women. Those behind the idea say transgendered people are often harassed, bullied or embarrassed no matter which bathroom they choose. They even suggest that the prospect of having to pick a gender-specific bathroom can lead to health issues since many ignore the call of nature until they can find a suitable bathroom. At the University of Regina, the student association decided to raise the issue with senior administration after noticing the single-stall handicapped washrooms were always full — and not always with disabled students. Kent Peterson, president of the university’s student association, said there is a concern students could essentially “out” themselves by using a gender-neutral bathroom. But some are essentially already doing that by using a washroom for the disabled when they have no obvious disability, he said. National OTTAWA - Letters went out Sunday to thousands of Ottawa area residents, warning them there’s a slim chance they could have been exposed to HI-V or hepatitis. Registered letters are being sent to as many as 6,800 people who dealt with a single physician at a “non-hospital” clinic. O ff i c i a l s s a y t h e

chance that any one of those receiving a letter may have been exposed to serious illness is remote. The potential exposure also may have occurred over a 10-year period, raising questions about whether officials will be able to deliver the letters to everyone who could be affected. *** HALIFAX - Sable Island is Canada’s newest national park. Premier Darrell Dexter signed the agreement today in Halifax with Peter Kent, the minister responsible for Parks Canada. The crescent-shaped island sits about 300 kilometres southeast of Nova Scotia and is home to 400 wild horses, as well as breeding grey seals and numerous bird species. The island is also known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic for the more than 200 wrecked ships off its coastline. Nova Scotia and Ottawa will table legislation to prohibit oil and gas drilling from the surface of Sable Island and out to one nautical mile from shore. *** TORONTO - Prime Minister Stephen Harper plans to give Ontario 13 additional seats in the House of Commons. Sources confirmed the change to The Canadian Press today. That will increase the province’s presence in the Commons to 119 seats from the current 106. But the additional 13 seats is fewer than the 18 the province was slated to receive under previous legislation that died when Parliament was dissolved. Earlier today, Premier

Dalton McGuinty refused to speculate about the number of seats Ontario could end up with but suggested that it could be fewer than expected. International WARSAW, Poland - Two competitors at the World Scrabble Championships were asked to empty their pockets when a letter “G’’ went missing. An official said Tuesday that the disappearance of a “G’’ tile occurred during the international event, which was held in the Polish capital from Oct. 12-16. Brian Dede, the event co-ordinator, said a referee had to intervene when opponents Edward Martin from Britain and Chollapat Itthi-Aree from Thailand noticed a missing tile during the last draw of their match. He said that led to a search on and under the table, and that both players “were asked to show the contents of their pockets.” The missing letter was nowhere to be found, so the referee added another “G’’ to the letters to create a complete set. *** ANKARA, Turkey Turkey’s state-run television says a roadside bomb explosion has killed four policemen and two civilians, including a 2-year-old girl, in Turkey’s southeast. Several other people were injured. TRT television, citing local authorities, said the blast occurred in the town of Guroymak in Bitlis province as a police vehicle passed by. It says authorities have launched an operation to catch the culprits who are believed to be Kurdish rebels.

Sunbelt Americans can make mark in WHL The statisticians’ calculators were clacking away and the numbers showing up were mind-boggling. Emerson Etem of the Medicine Hat Tigers was coming off a three-goal game against Victoria Royals in early October and after five games of the 72-game schedule, was on pace for a 144-goal season in the Western Hockey League. Considering the all-time one-season record in the 45-year-old league is 108 (by Brandon’s Ray Ferraro, in 1983-84), 144 goals would be Gretzky-like in eclipsing an old mark. OK, so the 19-year-old Etem, a Long Beach, Calif. native, will almost certainly not score 144 goals this year. What he is likely to do, however, is lead the WHL in goals this season and confirm his status as one of Anaheim Ducks’most prized prospects. Etem will also go down in WHL annals as the best Californian to ever play in the league ... so far. But watch out, the Americans are coming. The WHL even has the son of a rock star in its midst. Liam Stewart of Hermosa Beach, Calif., whose parents are Rod Stewart and Rachel Hunter, is on the roster of the Spokane Chiefs. In 1988, when Gretzky was traded to the L.A. Kings, sociologists said that a hockey boom would surely follow in the land of the sun and surf. It has. Twenty-three years after that pivotal hockey event, there are no fewer than 19 players on WHL rosters listing California, Texas or Arizona as their places of birth.

Bruce Penton Sports Columnist Stories of backyard rinks and six o’clock Saturday morning practices at 30-below temperatures are foreign to these American skaters, but tales of learning the game at shopping mall ice palaces and roller-skating rinks are legion. So while the likes of Seattle forward Colin Jacobs of Coppell, Texas; Kamloops forward Chase Souto of Yorba Linda, Californi; Kelowna defenceman Colten Martin of Arlington, Texas; Victoria forward Austin Carroll of Scottsdale, Arizona and forward Taylor Crunk of San Jacinto, California bring their hockey skills to WHL rinks this winter, thousands of other southwest American youngsters are no longer looking up to icons like Gretzky for their hockey inspiration, but to players like Etem, who have proven that a warm-weather climate is no barrier to becoming a hockey star. • Budd Bailey of the Buffalo News, after a man delivering Chinese food to Falcons kicker Matt Bryant was charged with stealing Bryant’s golf clubs from his garage: “Seems like he confused ‘delivery’ with ‘takeout.’” • Cam Hutchinson of the Saskatoon Express, after

a study revealed that people tend to yawn more in the winter than they do in the summer: “In a related story, the Toronto Maple Leafs play in the winter.” • RJ Currie of sportsdeke.com: “TSN said Riders quarterback Darian Durant was questionable for Thanksgiving. Hasn’t he been questionable all year? • Dwight Perry in the Seattle Times, after Tiger Woods had a run-in with a fan at the Frys.com open: “Just wondering: Do golf rules

“Frankly, the only sideline reporters I respect are those at the Running of the Bulls.” • Reader Dick Borzych of Mequon, Wis., asking a question of Chad: “Does the Lingerie Football League have a fantasy league, or would that be redundant?” • Janice Hough, of leftcoastsportsbabe.com: “A rough week for New York sports fans. The Yankees were eliminated. And the Jets and the Giants both lost. On a more cheerful note, it looks like the Knicks’ season may be cancelled.” • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: “It’s about time Edmonton got its downtown arena.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2011

Next year begins now for ‘Riders Well it’s now official. After being rumoured and speculated upon for months, the Saskatchewan Roughriders were eventually eliminated from post-season contention on Sunday thanks to their 29-18 home loss to the B.C. Lions. The most unsettling part of all this is that there are still three games left to go. If you can believe it, the Riders even had some hope on Sunday as Hamilton failed to clinch a playoff spot when they lost in Montreal earlier in the day. A Rider win over

Rod Pedersen Rider Insider the Lions would have prolonged Saskatchewan’s playoff aspirations for at least another week. Of course it didn’t happen. Not this year. It actually looked as though the team was going to pull it out as they led for most the game including 12-9 at halftime and 15-

12 going into the fourth quarter. However those leads were too narrow and when the team sagged on defence in the fourth, the Lions pounced with a pair of touchdowns to salt away their eighth straight win. For the Roughriders, the problem remained the same - no touchdowns. The

Antique

MACK AUCTION

drought has gone on for a month now. Four games ... seventeen quarters and counting. “It’s killin’ me,” said Rider coach Ken Miller after the game. “We moved it well today, like gangbusters, for three quarters. You have to put it in the end zone. It’s hard to drive 100 yards. We had it deep a lot but couldn’t put it in.” It has to be killing Miller, in so many ways. He had the chance to ride off into the sunset after last season like some mythical figure in Roughrider history, but his return to the sidelines has been nothing short of a disaster and he’s right in the middle of it all. In fact, at his post-game press conference, he took full responsibility for the team’s 4-11 record. Now what? As I’ve written over

the past few weeks, it’s too early to perform the autopsy while the legs are still twitching. We’ve got three games left in this agonizing season, all of which are meaningless. Really the biggest question now is whether or not quarterback Darian Durant will play again this season as he suffers from a broken foot. “It’s tough man,” Durant told CKRM after Sunday’s game. “We dug such a deep hole early at 1-7. By the time we started playing good football, it was too late.” Arrrgh! So agonizing. So painful are the last three weeks of The Season That Wasn’t. Like, what are you going to teach this team now? For whatever reason the magic this franchise had over the past decade is gone and they seem like just another team. That has

to change, but now it can wait until next year. “I told them right after the game that they played well for 45 minutes but unfortunately the game is 60 minutes long,” Miller said. “We gave up big plays and took bad penalties but really didn’t play well in that fourth quarter.” The Riders of the past didn’t need to be told the game was 60 minutes long. They would play as long as it took to beat you, or until you couldn’t find the will to fight anymore. Hey, it wasn’t that long ago, as the Riders beat B.C. in double overtime in last year’s West Division semifinal right here at Mosaic Stadium. It seems like years and years ago. (Rod Pedersen is the voice of the Riders on CKRM radio)

Canada sits fourth in Pan Am Games medal standings National GUADALAJARA, Mexico - After clinching an Olympic berth that had been a long time coming, Dorothy Ludwig thought about her dad. Ludwig, whose father Bill Hare was a three-time Olympian in shooting, earned her own trip to the Games on Sunday, winning gold in a dramatic 10-metre air pistol event that went down to the final shot. The 32-year-old from Langley, B.C., who needed a victory to qualify for London, scored 476.8, only 0.1 points better than silver medallist Maribel Pineda of Venezuela. American Sandra Uptagrafft won the bronze. *** VA N C O U V E R “Glee” star Cory Monteith has been named grand marshal of the Grey Cup festival parade. Monteith grew up in Victoria and moved to Vancouver as a teen to try his hand at acting. In recent years he shot to TV superstardom playing singing jock Finn Hudson on “Glee.” *** GUADALAJARA, Mexico - Canadian Isolda Penney won bronze in

women’s single sculls on Tuesday at the Pan American Games. The Kingston, Ont., native finished behind American Margot Shumway and Argentina’s Maria Best. At the end of Monday’s events, Canada sat fourth in the medal standings with 18 — ranking behind the United States, Brazil and Mexico. Penney is also a member of Canada’s women’s quad team. International LAS VEGAS, Nev. IndyCar has cancelled its season-ending banquet following the death of two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon at its season-ending race. Wheldon, the 2005 IndyCar series champion, was killed Sunday when his car got caught up in a 15-car wreck, sailed over another vehicle and struck a catch fence 11 laps into the race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. IndyCar had planned to hold a celebration for the 2011 season Monday night at Mandalay Bay Resort on the Las Vegas Strip. One of the series’ most popular drivers, Wheldon

New Zealand did its best to ignore national elation at its 20-6 semifinal

win over archrival Australia and began to prepare for Sunday’s final against France, its first World Cup final since 1995 and the final stepping stone in a 24-year quest for a second world title. France, the most surprising of finalists, had a rest day, depriving the tournament of another of the public appearances of coach Marc Lievremont which have been, in some ways, more of a spectacle

than their matches. *** PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad - Disgraced former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has threatened to release a “tsunami” of corruption allegations against FIFA President Sepp Blatter. Warner said Tuesday he will make the allegations once former presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam completes his appeal to

the Court of Arbitration of Sport against a life ban for bribery. “I have promised in the past a tsunami that would hit the FIFA, and indeed, it will come,” Warner, who was on FIFA’s ruling executive committee for 28 years, wrote in a letter to a newspaper in his native Trinidad. A verdict in bin Hammam’s appeal to CAS is not expected for several months.

Women’s Shoes & Boots for For Every Occasion

Where would we be if we didn’t have computers and the internet to help us process hundreds, if not thousands of business transactions every day? Whether it’s a slow computer or a virus- infected server, these are issues that hit small to medium businesses hard in the way of lost productivity, revenue losses and increased expenses. In fact, Industry Canada estimates that small to medium businesses spend $321.6 thousand on annual expenses, 2.2 per cent of which is allotted to repairs and maintenance alone. That’s a pretty penny, especially if they’re IT related. It’s not the end of the world If you can’t print or have lost vital data, it may seem like the end of the world as you know it. Then it becomes easier to fall victim to expensive freelance techies. But now, Staples Canada offers affordable IT services from their own tech crew for all kinds of maintenance support. But they recognized that small businesses are largely underserved. So they created a service called easytech 4business to help their small business clients who are in need of some affordable, on-site IT problem-solving support. “easytech 4business was designed to help meet service and tech needs specifically for small to medium business customers,” said Silviu Apostolide, director of easytech 4business. “Entrepreneurs have many things to worry about and our tech advisors are available to help, 24-hours-aday, with wide variety of products and services. It’s an extension of Staples’ already great service that caters to small and medium businesses.” How does it work? According to Apostolide, easytech 4business helps to keep businesses connected to their clients and the world. Staples’ team of certified technology experts are trained to help ease the pressure and offer valuable advice from

client’s specific technical requirements. Some of these operations include: • Basic maintenance • Break and fix solutions • Network set-up • Data back-up

• Security solutions • Mobility • Upgrades • Product sourcing and other requirements “For years now, Staples Canada has been a market leader in providing office

products and services to small businesses,” said Apostolide. “And like all Canadian companies, they require seamless, secure and fast systems. Now more than ever, we’ll be able to provide the same reliable,

superior technical support that small businesses can afford through easytech 4business.” For more information about easytech 4business and for a sample of client + testimonials, visit Staples. ca/easytech4business.

Interviewing a prospective accountant for your business The interview process is an important one in search for a prospective accountant for your business is an important one. The questions you ask will go a long way towards developing a solid relationship based on mutual trust. Does the accountant have prior work experience with your type of business? Does the accountant make comments and suggestions that indicate an

understanding of your business? Will the accountant provide the names of clients in a similar or related line of business? If so, verify with those clients as to whether the accountant is accessible, meets deadlines, and completes work within the cost estimate. Who will do the routine work, the accountant or other staff? Whether your accountant will be personally

responsible for routine work may depend on your business needs, the size of the accountant’s firm, and the nature and number of the accountant’s clientele. Is the accountant open to the idea of using other experts? An accountant dealing with smaller, privatelyowned companies should be willing to seek outside advice if or when specialized business affairs warrant such action.

What is the accountant’s standard billing procedure? An hourly fee is the norm when engaging a professional accountant. Once the nature and requirements of your business are detailed, can the accountant provide an estimate? More information on this topic is available online at cga-ontario.org or toll-free at 1-800-6681454.

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2011

Stir up gooey goop for Halloween fun Kids everywhere love just about anything that’s gooey, slithery and slimy. That’s probably why this recipe for “gooey goop” is such a crowd pleaser when you get together with friends, especially at a Halloween party. It’s quick, easy and creates lots of laughter. What could be better? Here’s the stuff you’ll need: 8 ounce bottle of white household glue such as Elmer’s 8 ounces water Poster paint or food coloring (optional) Small mixing bowl Large mixing bowl 1 cup warm water 1 1/2 teaspoons borax powder (available in the laundry detergent section of larger supermarkets) Here’s the fun:

1. Squeeze the entire bottle of glue into a big bowl. Then fill the empty 8-ounce glue bottle with water and add to the glue. Stir a lot while adding several drops of poster paint or food coloring. Mix colors, use just one, or don’t add any color at all and leave it white. We usually make our batches purple. 2. In the smaller bowl, stir together the cup of warm water and borax powder until almost dissolved. Don’t worry if you can’t get all of the little clumps to disappear completely.

3. Gather your family or friends together for this step! Slowly, and stirring constantly, pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture. Swirl the results with your hands and in seconds goop will form into gooey globs as it oozes from your slippery grasp. Pick it up, knead it, squeeze it and enjoy playing with it. Note: Please keep the gooey goop away from carpets and upholstered furniture. If it gets on your clothing, wash it out quickly with soap and water. Extra idea: While you are making the recipe, make up other names for the concoction. How about “Sublime Slime,” “Slithery Concoction” or “Ectoplasmic Ick”? *** Donna Erickson’s

THE TRADER EXPRESS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2011

• It was 20th-century Canadian-American economist John Kenneth Galbraith who made the following sage observation: “Faced with the choice between changing one’s mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.” • The original jacko’-lanterns were turnips, not pumpkins. The custom began in Ireland, where residents hollowed out and carved faces into large tur-

nips for the Celtic harvest festival of Samhain. The turnips, placed on windowsills, were believed to ward off evil spirits. In Scotland, young men would dress in white and blacken their faces in an imitation of the dead. • Peter the Great was known during his reign in the late 17th and early 18th centuries as “Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias.” In order to raise money, he taxed just about anything he could think of, including births, burials, chimneys and even beards. • By law, if you are planning to build in Washington,

Page 27

D.C., the edifice must be no taller than the Capitol building. • You probably know that physicist Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize. You might not realize, however, that the prize was for his work on the photoelectric effect of light, not for his more famous theory of relativity. • If you are like the average American woman, you will spend a grand total of 60 days of your life in the practice of removing body hair.

Closing Up for Winter Q: Last year, I placed weather stripping inside my home’s window frames and the door. Yet I still feel that the house is drafty, and my heating bills didn’t really go down. Is there more that I can do? -- Frank L., Burlington, Vt. A: You should do a home energy audit (or home energy assessment) this fall, before winter closes in, to find out if and where heat is escaping from your house. This can be done using a do-it-yourself kit -- often available through your utility company at a reduced price -- or by hiring a professional. Professional auditors often use a blower door as their primary tool in hunting down sources of air coming into the house. The blower door is a fan unit that attaches to an exterior door, and includes a unit to measure air pressure inside the house. The door lowers the air pressure inside the house; then, higher outside air pressure means air will enter the house through unsealed openings and cracks. The auditor hunts down these entry points. Ask the auditor if the blower door is calibrated or not. A calibrated blower door can provide additional information on how airtight the home is. Another tool in the professional auditor’s ar-

senal is the thermographic scan. Using this, he or she can determine whether your home needs new insulation and where exactly that insulation needs to go. Proper insulation can go a long way toward reducing energy costs, particularly in older homes. To find a professional auditor, contact your utility company or visit its website. Ask friends and neighbors if they’ve had an energy audit, and get recommendations from them. Contact several auditors, and ask if they use a calibrated blower door and whether they do thermographic scans. Get a written estimate before allowing any work to be done. HOME TIP: Closing off unused rooms in winter and shutting the air vents in them can help reduce heating costs. Send your questions or comments to ask@thisisahammer.com, or write This Is a Hammer, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.
