Two organizations P l a n n i n g f o r t h e f u t u r e look for support from Town Council By Eoin Devereux The Neepawa Press

A pair of local organizations are making a last minute plea to Neepawa Town Council to reconsider its stance on grant distribution. On Monday, April 25, Viscount Cultural Centre board chair Amanda Naughton-Gale and Neepawa Natives vice president Cam Tibbett were guests on News and Views, a long running current events program on NACTV. The pair discussed the reduction in spending on grants to organizations in the 2016 financial plan. The VCC’s funding was cut from $10,000 to $5,000, while the Natives went from $5,000 to nothing. Naughton-Gale said during the broadcast, that the loss of $5,000 would have a major impact on how the VCC handles even its most basic operations. “To an organization [such as ours], whose operating budget is only $120,000, that type of reduction is a pretty significant amount to lose,” said Naughton-Gale. “For us, we’ve had to put projects on hold and really rethink how we operate even the bare necessities.” Tibbett concurred with Naughton-Gale’s assessment, noting that for groups with such small margins, a loss of what the town may see as a small amount, can make a big difference. “There are 11 teams in the [MJHL] and over half of them struggle year to year financially and in Neepawa, that [initial town support of] $10,000 was important.” Naughton-Gale said the cost considerations for this grant support is actually very minuscule compared to what other municipalities set aside for similar programs. “When you look at the amount that the Town of Neepawa’s budget is, [the allocation of grant support is] a drop in the bucket for them,” said Naughton-Gale. “And it’s

organizations like the VCC, the Natives and Yellowhead Centre, just to name a few, that are actually doing the things, that in other communities, the municipality is doing themselves.” Tibbett challenged the people to speak up, saying that we, as a community, would be losing more than we’re gaining if the hockey club or the VCC were lost. “We used to have [events such as] the Lily Festival and all these things and they say the town is growing at a rate of ten per cent year over year. In the next five years we could be at around 6,500 people, but yet the town doesn’t see the culture or the recreation side of it. These are assets to the community and if you don’t have them, what do you have?” Naughton-Gale concluded by saying there is still time for council to reconsider it’s grant distribution and hoped they’ll see the long term value these local groups provide. “I really feel that the Town of Neepawa has really lost its vision in what a town is and what it means to be part of a community. Community organizations such as VCC, the Natives and others like the Holiday Festival of the Arts, which was shutout of the funding entirely, and other, smaller groups add value to a community. It’s what we do that creates value and improves the quality of life and if the Town of Neepawa is so shortsighted that investment should only be made into infrastructure and roads or sewer and water, they really are missing the mark,” stressed Naughton-Gale. “I think the town needs to think of us not as expenses, but as investments in the community.” First reading of the financial plan has been passed, but second and third reading must occur before the budget is formally approved. Details on that meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, May 3, will appear in the next issue of the Neepawa Press.


On April 28, Doug Paterson, of Paterson Patterson Wyman & Abel, gave a presentation on estate planning. At the free event, organized by the Beautiful Plains Community Foundation, he talked about wills, power of attorneys and health care directives. Paterson also answered questions from the approximately 25 attendees, whose ages ranged from high school students to senior citizens.

Neepawa Press Looking Back

MAY 4, 2016 3

1986: Neepawa Mayor Homer Gill elected YHA president Week of May 4, 2016

40 years ago Thursday, May 6, 1976 A car-truck collision five miles south of McCreary on provincial highway #5 Monday evening resulted in the death of an Ochre River man. A south-bound oneton truck, operated by Ferninand Freier of Neepawa, was passing another vehicle when it came into collision with a northbound 1969 Chevelle. The driver of the car was thrown from his vehicle and died at the scene. Dead is 56-year -old John Jake Sonsie of Ochre River, Manitoba. 30 years ago Thursday, May 1, 1986 Neepawa Mayor Homer Gill has been elected

president of the Yellowhead Highway Association (YHA). He was elected at the association’s annual conference April 21 at Prince George, British Columbia, after serving one year as YHA vice-president and one year as Manitoba president. “[The position] is a challenge, it’s certainly an interesting job,” noted Gill. 20 years ago Monday, May 7, 1996 The opposition critic for the Manitoba Telephone System says selling the public utility is one of the worst things that could happen to Manitobans. “We [the people of Manitoba] are already the shareholders of MTS,” said

Steve Ashton last Friday. “In a real sense, the government doesn’t have the mandate to sell MTS.” The plan to sell Manitoba Telephone System was announced last Thursday by the minister responsible for the utility, Glen Findlay. 10 years ago Monday, May 1, 2006 Neepawa Mayor Bob Durston expressed disappointment after the town was shut out in the latest round of provincial board appointments to the Assiniboine Regional Health Authority. “Neepawa is the largest community in the RHA and it would have been nice to have an appointment,” Durston said. “It’s

disappointing there’s no representation from this area.” While he acknowledged board members are supposed to serve the needs of the entire region, Durston said it’s often difficult to convey concerns when board members aren’t locally based. “It can be difficult if the representative is more than an hour away,” he said. Neepawa Town Council made no secret of its desire to have a local representative when the latest rounds of nomination opened. Neepawa and surrounding communities were also shut out when board appointments were made in the spring of 2004.


30 years ago, Thursday, May 1, 1986: Neepawa’s mayor Homer Gill has been named president o f t h e Ye l l o w h e a d H i g h w a y A s s o c i a t i o n . By Cecil Pittman The Neepawa Press 80 years ago Tuesday, May 5, 1936 The intermediate hockey club celebrated the closing of its season activities Friday night by holding the annual banquet in the waiting room of the new rink. Forty-seven enthusiasts sat down to the sumptuous meal and others who were unable to attend for the feature arrived later for the meeting. C. V. Kerr, president of the club, was the chairman. 70 years ago Thursday, May 2, 1946 Sergeant Douglas Geoffrey Welland, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Welland, McCreary, MB, has been awarded the Bronze Star medal of the United States, according to word received by his parents from Major General Earnest G. Weeks, Adjutant General, Ottawa. 60 years ago Thursday, May 3, 1956 The body of John Stefhanyshyn, 76, of Glenella,

was found Tuesday, April 24, in a water filled ditch in the Glenhope district about four and one half miles from his home, which is located 11 miles north of the village. According to available reports, the elderly man had been reported missing Monday night, when he failed to turn up at the home of a daughter whom he had set out to visit. 50 years ago Tuesday, May 3, 1966 The board of directors for Neepawa’s half-million dollar home for the elderly had a busy night Monday, when they signed the contract with B. F. Klassen Construction Ltd. and officially named the home. The home will be known as East View Lodge. The name was chosen from almost 100 entries submitted by school students and elderly people in the area. Winner of the contest was a Grade 5 student from Arden, Sharon Perrett, who will receive a cash prize of $25.

The revival at Octopus Creek

According to the Oxford on-line dictionary, to be ironic is defined as “happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing amusement...” Hence, let me point out the irony of my last article, the one in which I described the imminent threats of climate change, which was then followed by one of the snowiest Aprils in the last decade. Ha! In my defence, let me just say that April’s snow was the exception that proved the rule… maybe. Ok, moving right along. How about a good news story? For nearly 20 years, I have traveled to work along a trail system that follows Octopus Lake and Octopus Creek. Over that time, I have noticed some big improvements to the creek. In the early 2000s, as I skied along portions of the creek in late winter, the stench of ammonia rising from the creek would regularly clear my sinuses. Good for a head cold, not so good for the creek. The smell was nature’s way of pointing out that the creek water had run out of oxygen. More to the point, microbes had used up all the oxygen as they digested the plants, including algae, which had prospered during the summer on the rich, human-supplied nutrients. In the last five years, though, sewage that had been leaking into the creek from overloaded septic fields and septic tanks has been significantly reduced. Many of these gains are a direct result of the on-going work of property owners along the creek, the Municipality of Harrison Park and Parks Canada. For example, sewage from a limited number of landowners outside the park is now feeding into the park’s sewage lagoon, where it undergoes treatment before being released into the Octopus Creek system. As well, thanks to the cooperation of

the Elkhorn Resort and the Elkhorn Riding Adventures, a large herd of horses that once pastured right up to the water’s edge has now been fenced away from the creek. What a difference these actions made! By reducing nitrogen and phosphorous inputs, oxygen levels in the water now remain relatively high all winter long and the creek remains relatively sweet smelling. At the same time, fish movements have increased. Local beaver populations along the creek have naturally stabilised, or even declined, which has meant fewer dams obstructing fish movements. This is quite a difference from the beaver heydays, say 10 years ago, when you couldn’t go more than 100 metres before running into a beaver dam. This change is now allowing jackfish to move up Octopus Creek and to spawn in the upper reaches of Octopus Lake for the first time in many years. And not only are fish returning, other results have been encouraging. This spring, I noticed a river otter on the ice of Octopus Lake. The otter was swimming in a small area of open water and with luck, I was able to park my bike behind some bushes and spy on it. For about 10 minutes, the otter dove in and out of the water, feeding on small minnows. It would snuffle along the ice and then disappear again. It never stopped moving. All this hubbub was making a pair of Canada geese, which shared the same open patch of water, a wee bit nervous. Anytime the otter popped up out of the water, the geese would fluff up their feathers, extend their necks and give their alarm honk. I had to get to work, so I didn’t stick around too long. On my ride home, I noticed the geese were still there, looking more comfortable. The otter was nowhere to be seen. Then, about a week later, I noticed otter

Thumbs up, thumbs down Thumbs down to our local governing bodies that cut the financial support of community organizations like the VCC, that exist for the sole purpose of enriching our community.

tracks about two kilometres further downstream, which tells me that the creek acts as a highway for movement for both fish and otters. Makes sense when you think about it, given that otters really like fish. Nature notes: In the winter, a bird’s risk of being killed by a winged predator at the bird feeder is pretty low. Most of the resident chickadees, pine and evening grosbeaks and woodpeckers have relatively little to fear. Come spring, though, the number of migrating hawks and falcons raises the ante considerably. Suddenly, air-borne danger is everywhere and the birds at feeders become hyper-alert. Rae and I were doing the dishes the other night when we noticed a sudden lack of movement around the bird feeder. It became eerily quiet. In particular, we noticed a trio of chickadees hunkered down in the lilacs. They were frozen still as statues. Literally not a feather moved. We watched. They sat. The minutes ticked by, while whichever predator lurked in the area remained unseen. After about three minutes, one of the chickadees swivelled its head slightly to the side, eyeing the sky. The other two remained still. By infinitely small movements, they slowly began to thaw. Soon, all three were slowly twisting their heads about. One bird shook out its tail feathers. The game of freeze tag came when a fourth chickadee flew into the suet feeder. This territorial incursion caused all three birds to spring to action, intent on chasing away the intruder. And all were soon back to their regular, cheeky behaviour. But with one eye on the sky, of course. Ken Kingdon Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve

The arts, good for the soul By Ron Nordstrom Submitted

Kurt Vonnegut was an author best known for his novel Slaughterhouse Five. Vonnegut believed that all people needed to be creative simply because it was good for the soul. One of my favorite Kurt Vonnegut quotes is: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow. - Kurt Vonnegut I have dabbled in many areas of the arts including drawing and painting, photography, songwriting and acting. As well, I have a number of musical instruments that I continue to “play” with. Each experience is an exercise that brings me joy and makes me search deep inside myself. Each experience challenges me and helps me grow. What value is there in the arts? Let me give you an example. Songwriting for me is a huge intellectual challenge. I need to be able to problem solve, make decisions, think critically and of course, think creatively. Aren’t these some of the qualities that everyone needs in order to be successful in today’s society? The songs I write tend to be silly. Sometimes, that is my intention. Other times, I start out writing a serious song and it turns silly. The result is not near as important as the process. Let me describe my process of songwriting. There are many different ways to write a song, but this is what works for me. The first thing I need to decide is “What do I want to say?” Will this song tell a story? Will it inform the listener about a crisis or cause like the ongoing civil war in Somalia? Will it teach a historic lesson like the role of Canadians in the underground railroad in the 19th century? Maybe the song will just try to evoke an emotional

response like joy or sadness from the listener, like Trooper’s “We’re Here for a Good Time”. Try not tapping your toes or bopping your head during that song. Once the general idea of the song’s purpose has been determined, the next step for me is deciding on a pace. A sad song about heartbreak would not be effective with a fast paced, bluegrass feel. Then, like a poet, decisions have to be made on the meter. How many beats per line will I use? How many lines per verse? What will the rhyming scheme be? Once all these decisions have been made, I can start on the lyrics. For me, this usually takes three to four drafts before I say what I mean to say. Then I try out some chords and figure out a chord progression and melody to fit the mood of the song. At this point, some of the words do not flow smoothly when singing, so another draft or two of the lyrics occurs. Finally, I am satisfied with the result and I start to learn my song. I will never make money, become famous or benefit in any traditional sense. I may not have contributed anything valuable to society. However, the immense satisfaction of creating something gives me a sense of pride and accomplishment that is a huge boost for my soul and mental well being. The fact that the exercise was challenging and a lot of work only serves to heighten my joy at creating something out of nothing. The act of creating truly is chicken soup for the soul. The only way to truly believe that art is good for the soul is to create something. Kurt Vonnegut challenged a group of high school students to write a poem. Make it the best they could. Write, revise and make it perfect and something to be proud of. Then tear it up and let no one else see it. Even then, those students felt immense joy in knowing that they created something. Follow Kurt’s advice. Go create something.

Getting back into the swing of things By Eoin Devereux The Neepawa Press

The recent warm weather has allowed golf enthusiasts to get back out on the greens, as the Neepawa Golf & Country Club (NGCC) has opened for the summer. Early on, the cooler conditions across the region did not make a round of 18 that much of a pleasurable experience, but CPGA head golf professional for the NGCC, Landon Cameron, said that the weather is finally starting to cooperate. Cameron said that has allowed the course to come into form a bit quicker than usual. “The tee boxes and greens are already in mid-summer condition,” said Cameron. “This is the best I have seen the golf course look in the spring. The greens all wintered very well and everything else is taking shape, just needed a bit of heat to green it up.” There were no major changes to the course to start the year, though Cameron did note that staff and volunteers have been doing some clearing of the brush and bushes along the river banks to improve the sight lines. As for major tournaments or events that are set for 2016, Cameron said they’re looking forward to hosting the CN Future Links Prairie Classic. That is a junior event that is run by Golf Canada and sees top golfers from across western Canada compete. It’ll be held at NGCC from Friday, June 10 to Sunday, June 12. Cameron said it will be nice for the club and the community in general to be on display on a national stage. Some of the other events of note for the season include the annual Senior Men’s tournament on July 13, the opening round of the two day Desert Classic Men’s Open on Aug. 1 (day two will be held in Carberry) and the Ladies

Thank You Thank You

I wish to thank Ken and Christine Waddell for applying to The Canadian Community Newspaper Association's “Silver Quill” - 25 Years of distinguished service to the Newspaper Industry Award in honor of me. I was completely humbled by the “Surprise Presentation Party” of approximately 60 friends and family members gathered at the Chicken Corral Banquet Room, Thursday, April 21. I would also like to offer a “BIG THANK YOU” to Jack Huxley and the late John Oslund, Jack Gibson and Ewan Pow, all former owners of The Neepawa Press; for allowing me access to The Neepawa Press newspaper collections enabling me to research and fulfill ”Free of Charge” requests for family, business histories etc. for several years prior to doing the “Looking Backwards” column, this I still do. The Neepawa Press former General Manager, Darren Graham, gave me permission to include old photos in my columns, the readers response was fantastic. With the formation of the “Beautiful Plains Archives” under the management of the late Allan Drysdale my work load was reduced a bit, Norma Forsman has taken over that position. I cannot express enough how very proud I am of my partner, Joan Enns who with other friends help assemble a guest list and made contact with many without me knowing about her efforts. It would not be an easy task. MOST SINCERELY Cecil Pittman

RMNP takes precautions against Zebra Mussels Submitted Riding Mountain National Park

Parks Canada is taking precautions against zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species at Riding Mountain National Park by consolidating boat launches around Clear Lake. Boats can launch from the Clear Lake Boat Cove and East End (at the Clear Lake Golf Course entrance), while launches at Frith Beach and Spruces day-use area will be closed. Riding Mountain National Park will continue mandatory watercraft inspections for aquatic invasive species in 2016. Since spring 2015, all motorized and non-motorized watercraft entering park waters have been required to undergo a free inspection by Parks Canada watercraft inspectors who have received specialized training from Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship (CWS) and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. In 2015, Parks Canada inspectors conducted over 2,300 watercraft inspections on boats, canoes, kayaks, sailboats and paddleboards and 45 vessels were decontaminated. Permits and decals issued in 2015 are not valid for 2016.

“The consolidation of boat launches and continued watercraft inspections are measures that Parks Canada is using to ensure the ecological integrity of Clear Lake and other park waters. These measures will safeguard the health and recreational potential of our lakes for visitors,” said Michaela Kent, superintendent, Riding Mountain National Park Parks Canada is a recognized world leader in conservation. As part of a pilot project with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to monitor the spread of zebra mussels in Manitoba, inspectors took water samples from high-risk watercraft to test for zebra mussel environmental DNA (eDNA). Resource Management Officers also conducted eDNA sampling on lakes in the park, and received permission from Manitoba CWS to obtain samples from surrounding lakes. The samples processed to date have tested negatively for zebra mussels. Quick Facts · Zebra mussels were first confirmed in Manitoba in Lake Winnipeg in 2013 and there is a high threat that they will spread to other lakes in the province.

By working closely with visitors to keep this destructive invasive species out of park waters, Parks Canada is ensuring both the ecological integrity of our treasured spaces and their enjoyment by present and future generations. · Riding Mountain National Park is working with the four western provinces (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia) to prevent the spread of zebra mussels and with Manitoba CWS on general aquatic invasive species concerns. · Investments in visitor infrastructure will ensure the quality and reliability of visitor facilities and continue to allow Canadians to connect with nature. The Clear Lake Boat Cove recently received several upgrades, including expanded parking, a new accessible canoe/kayak launch and improved traffic flow for launching. Future improvements include new boat launches, silt and sand control for launches, and re-routing of the Clear Lake walking trail. High risk shoreline areas will be re-vegetated to prevent erosion and to keep nutrients from getting into Clear Lake.
