BSD introduces plans for Maryland School Derek Holtom WRITER, WESTMAN JOURNAL

As she stood at the doorway greeting families and interested parties at a recent open house, Brandon School Division Chair Linda Ross could tell there was plenty of support for the planned Maryland School. “Some people were telling me they have been waiting 15 years for this,” said Ross. “Most people are very excited about this new school. They were very upbeat.” The Brandon School Division, as well as representatives from the City of Brandon and architects working on this project, gathered at the Riverview Curling Club on July 4 to host a public information session on the new Maryland School. The newest addition to the Brandon School Division is scheduled to be constructed at 700 Maryland Ave. The new school is expected to have a capacity for 450 students, as well as a child care centre which can accommodate 20 infants and 54 preschool children. It will also have 40 nursery school spaces, and will be able to expand to a capacity of 675 students if needed (via portables). Ross noted the province now mandates all new schools be built with child care areas, adding she feels this will bring much needed

care spaces to the area. “There’s a huge shortage of child care spaces, so anything that can be added is helpful,” she said. “Plus, it can be helpful for children transitioning from day care to school. And it’s easier for the parents if they can get child care in the area.” The new Maryland School will feature many spaces common in just about every school, such as a gymnasium, an art room and science labs. Some, however, are not as common, such as a nutrition and textiles lab, as well as manufacturing and construction areas. There is also a new space dedicated to students who have English as a second language, something Ross feels is a welcome and much-needed area to help educate Brandon’s diversifying student population. “We have a very large number of students who do not have English as their first language, and that’s an issue we have been dealing with over the past several years,” said Ross. “These students are always in regular class rooms, but now there will be additional supports.” There is expected to be interesting and new technology incorporated in the new school. The school will include a STEM lab (Science, Technology, Electronics, and Math), showing the division has plans to address the technology component of the new school.

Motoring through the past

Classic vehicle enthusiasts took in a wide array of vintage cars, trucks and other vehicles at Cruise Night in Downtown Brandon on July 5. The monthly event – which is held May through September – was moved to 9th Street between Princess and Victoria Avenues due to the fire that hit the city’s core in May. The evening includes music, street vendors, charity barbecues and, at times, live entertainment. The next Cruise Night is scheduled to take place Aug. 2. PHOTO/DANNIELLE MORRISSEAU School enrollment in Manitoba is up slightly (1.2 per cent according to statistics from the Province of Manitoba), but not every division is seeing numbers grow. In fact, only 21 of 36 school divisions have enrollment trending upwards. The Brandon School Di-

vision is one of those school divisions on the rise, as they were up 0.8 per cent heading into the 2017-18 school year. Ross said this enrollment increases are “a good problem to have”. “It is a bit unusual in Manitoba, as many are seeing a decrease in enrollment,”

she added. “It’s in large part to population growth – in part – to immigrants to the city. That has led to a really significant rise in new students.” Ross added this school will become a great anchor for an area of the city where there is no school

located nearby. The project is currently in the design phase, with tenders expected to go out this November. If all goes according to plan, shovels will be in the ground next February, with an expected opening date of September, 2020.

Greyhound Canada cancels all prairie bus routes Greyhound closing operations in Man., Sask. and Alta. after seeing an operating deficit for 14 consecutive years Heather Reimer REPORTER, VIRDEN EMPIRE-ADVANCE

Greyhound Canada announced Monday that it is cancelling all bus services across the Prairie provinces, northern Ontario and most of British Columbia as of October 31, ending more than eight decades of operations in Western Canada. The news came out in an email announcement sent to Greyhound’s partner agencies, including depots located in communities within the Westman region. The message read, in part: “We have made the difficult decision to downsize our Canadian business by discontinuing operations in all provinces except Ontario and Quebec, and one route in British Columbia. “We will end all routes… in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. In British Columbia, all routes will discontinue except for Vancouver to Seattle… “In northern Ontario, we will exit the Trans-Canada west of Sudbury.” Greyhound blames a 41 per cent drop in ridership along with a 35 per cent reduction in cargo shipping since 2010 for the decision to end services. The carrier also cites

increasing competition from other transport services, discount couriers, increasing car travel, and the growth of ecommerce as factors. The company went on to say it believes the cuts in service are necessary to save its overall business. Greyhound has been running an operating deficit within the specified regions since 2004. The decision to close the routes will cut about 415 jobs and impact an estimated two million potential consumers. “We envision that these changes will result in a viable, sustainable business on the remaining routes,” the company said. In 2009, Greyhound Canada threatened to pull out of Manitoba if it wasn’t given provincial funding. Then-federal Transport Minister John Baird said it was an attempt to bully the provinces, calling Greyhound’s actions a “shakedown.” Three years ago, Greyhound reduced the number of buses crossing Manitoba on the Trans-Canada from two a day to one as a cost-saving measure. Greyhound has been part of the transportation system in Canada for more than 80 years. The company was originally founded in 1929, operating out of B.C., then moving into Alberta.

Community News

How a World-Famous Car Museum Wound Up in Elkhorn The story of a car-lover named Ike Isaac (Ike) Clarkson was in his glory. His personal museum of restored cars had outgrown his sheds on the farm. Word got out about this farmer east of Elkhorn, Man. who had all these antique cars, and people travelled for miles to see his collection. Many enjoyed riding down the country roads in his cars. In 1961, Ike’s collection of 60 cars could not be maintained on his property, so he offered them to the Village of Elkhorn. A corporation was formed and a structure measuring 18,000 square feet was built to house them. In 1967 the Manitoba Antique Automobile Museum officially opened with Ike as its curator. Ike passed away just four years later at the age of 58. However, a young man’s dreams are still enjoyed by people from all over the world. In the beginning… As a youngster, Ike was in awe of a 1909 Hupmobile Roadster owned by Matthew Black of Two Creeks, Man. Black had purchased it second hand in 1918 or 1919 for $15. Years later, Ike was able to purchase the remains of the same Hupmobile. Ike’s first task was to start clearing the location where the metal shell of a car set. It was in very sad condition. The parts were carefully moved to Ike’s garage and the area was combed for any small bits that remained. Ancient spare parts had to be located.

The parts needed to be doused in penetrating oil to get them loosened up. The metal body-work was all separated into piles of battered, rusted plates. The engine was soaked loose and very carefully stripped down to the last nut and bolt. Now restoration could begin. Every piece of sheet metal had to be hammered back into its original shape, but some parts were impossible to obtain. In those cases, Ike made parts from scratch using very simple hand tools, bits of metal and tons of patience. Every piece of wood was handmade by cutting the pieces and steaming them into the correct shape. Gradually, the Hupmobile Roadster took shape as Ike pieced it together, one bit at a time. Finally, the day came when the little Hupmobile was rolled out from the garage. A quick snap of the crank and it was running like the day it was first made. The Hupp Motorcar Company was organized in 1908 and began production of its first automobile shortly thereafter. The company was able to last through the turbulent years following the First World War and the Great Depression. It produced its last automobile in 1940. Each early Hupmobile had “Guaranteed for Life” stamped right on the car’s nameplate. In 1909, the year the lovely, two-passenger Hupp Roadster was produced, the company’s advertising slogan was:

“The smartest and best little car ever marketed in America at anything like money.” This snappy little car offered good road performance from its four cylinder, 20-horsepower engine, folding windshield, elliptical spring suspension, Pres-To-Lite head lamps, kerosene side and tail lamps, artillery-type wheels, repair kit and tire pump, all for $750. It is very obvious their slogan meant what it said. Submitted by Lillian Jackson, secretary-treasurer of the Elkhorn Museum Restoration Club. The Manitoba Antique Auto Museum in Elkhorn is now open to the public seven days a week until the end of September.

It all began with one car – this 1909 Hupmobile restored by Ike Clarkson. PHOTO/SUBMITTED

The Antique Auto Museum in Elkhorn houses more than 100 vintage vehicles, a restored pioneer home and more.

“Many living with seizures need help” By: Carly McIntosh Time and time again the subject of Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures has been thrown to the dirt and directly recovered once the subject has just a slight reappearance. Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures has been a part of me for close to a decade in time and I believe my purpose in being given this mental illness is to stop the nonsense in hiding a subject that is seriously in need of help. I was three years old when I was struck by my very first epileptic seizure. It came into play that man-made chemicals and strong smells were setting them off. I slowly learned to pull myself away from those dangers. I grew into a cycle that if I saw or smelt a man-made chemical, I would hold my breath and run away from the situation. At the age of eight, I believe I was given a life lesson because that is when I had my very first Tonic-Clonic seizure. Through childhood, I had to live through many situations that a child should never be forced to experience. Abuse was directed at me in many different ways, driven strictly by my father. Living with epileptic seizures was enough for a child, but I also experienced verbal abuse, mental abuse, and physical abuse. Having lived through childhood abuse, I will speak for many of us; you never forget. A child growing up in that type of situation does not know which way to look. They don’t know what is right and wrong. They lose faith in themselves. And, they don’t know if it is truly the beginning or the end. Many live to grow up in pain and that is a feeling they continue hold on to. I got myself out of the situation of living through childhood abuse, but once that chapter was over, I was given more un-wanted news. I was told I had a left temporal lobe brain tumour which was causing the epileptic seizures. I had an idea placed in my head that if the brain tumour was removed, in a way, the epileptic seizures would be removed. At 17, I underwent brain surgery. When I woke, the very first thing I felt was a seizure. I came to the belief that the surgery did not work and I thought that I was still having epilep-

tic seizures, which was false. It came to the point my seizures had now become psychogenic nonepileptic. Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures are an event that resembles an epileptic seizure but are not caused by abnormal brain electrical discharges. Epileptic seizures are brief episodes of signs or symptoms due to abnormally excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. Having gone through everything I did, it took close to a decade to calculate that my psychogenic non-epileptic seizures were being caused by anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). One day in my life, all the realization of what was really happening just clicked. My psychogenic non-epileptic seizures became less frequent. Many years after having been placed on medication, it was never the logical answer. The

answer was accepting myself for who I am and not being afraid of my soul placed within me. Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures are real seizures and can be set off by many things, including stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD and more. One thing I will never understand is why epilepsy and seizures have been a hidden medical issue for so many centuries; what is it about this simple disability? I was bullied and ultimately kicked out of high school, fired from jobs, and judged throughout my life. Yet, I never did anything wrong. Why does the public run from the ones living with the disability of epilepsy and seizures? Carly McIntosh is a Calgary, Alta. resident whose goal is to help others living with epilepsy and seizures.

WRITER, WESTMAN JOURNAL

There so many aspects of summer that I have grown to love. Ever since I was a kid, I enjoyed riding my bike, golfing, fishing, mowing the lawn and the blissful sound of birds chirping while you nap in your lawn chair. I’ve always loved the outdoors, but one thing I never truly understood was how to garden and how to do it correctly. Sure, when I lived with 96.1 BOB FM morning man Mike Lamb, we had a few flower pots on the deck and in the flowerbed, but how they survived I will never know. Earlier this spring, along with moving from town into the country, my fiance (Y’all should know her, she used to write in these pages) de-

cided that we should plant a garden. To best provide the knowledge and expertise I felt we would need, I tried to think back to my childhood and any other relevant experience I had before digging up a plot and throwing seeds in the ground. My dad has worked in agriculture his whole life and my parents had a garden. My grandparents still have a garden just off Highway 10 in Boissevain, and my childhood neighbors in Neepawa had one of the best plots of fruit and veggies I’ve seen to this day. When thinking back to those gardens, I have ZERO idea how they came to be. All I remember was trying not to step in a row while filling my pockets with raspberries and carrots. After fixing up my grandpa’s old garden tiller – and breaking another one (Sorry Bruce!) – alongside battling the weather and an army

of mosquitoes and wood ticks, I finally got my 12-foot-by-10-foot garden tilled and sprayed and ready for seeds. Now when I look across my yard, I see a bountiful crop of potatoes, corn, onions, watermelon, cabbage, peas, dill, and lettuce. But one thing I should mention is that this garden basically appeared out of thin air. No matter how many ways I try to spin it, my baseball games seemed to land on “garden planting” nights for the soon to be wife. I know have a garden to call my own and I’m darn proud of it. However, just like when I was a kid, I’m not sure how it got there, why it’s in the order it is, or what garden tool is used for what weed. I just know where to find the best snacks without leaving footprints.

Family ‘wows’ BACF with million-dollar donation Derek Holtom WRITER, WESTMAN JOURNAL

The Brandon area has been blessed – again – by the generosity of the Peters family. Gord and Diane Peters have donated $1 million in personal shares of their company, Cando Rail Services, to the Brandon Area Community Foundation (BACF) – the second such donation in the last 10 years. The donation is different than most made to community foundations, as it will not become an endowed fund. Instead, the money from the sale of these shares will be spent in the community – in its entirety – during the next seven years. Half of the money will be spent at the direction of the Peters’ family, with the other half being doled out to successful applicants to the BACF. Laura Kempthorne, General Manager of the BACF, wasn’t with the organization when the Peters made their first donation, so having them walk into her office with such a significant gift was a moment she won’t forget. “I wasn’t working with the foundation when they made their first donation of shares back in 2009,” said Kempthorne. “It is absolutely thrilling when someone comes in and wants to give you (a million dol-

lars). I was extremely shocked and grateful. There’s just no words when someone does this. “And it doesn’t even have to be for this dollar value,” she added. “We’ve had many people come in and want to make donations, but this time – yah, that was a ‘wow’ moment for me.” Kempthorne said there have been other significant donations to the BACF in the past, but she describes the donation by the Peters as “unique”; not just in terms of the dollar amount. Most donations flowing into community foundations are held in trust, with only the interest being used for donations. The Peters want the entire donation spent. “What’s nice about this is when they sell the shares, we’ll also get a dividend cheque,” said Kempthorne. “This money will all be spent on community projects, on a yearly basis.” Kempthorne added it’s not common for people to make donations via shares in the company, but says it does happen. Back in 2009, the Peters were actively involved in choosing the causes their money benefitted. Kempthorne said some of those projects included the YMCA, the Keystone Centre, Massey Manor, the provincial building, and the Oak Lake Beach playground, among others. The money from the Peters fam-

ily, along with other donations generated from the interest of their endowments, means the BACF will be able to deliver a notable increase in funds to worthy community projects for several years. “We not only get to donate more money, but we get to make an impact on community projects,” said Kempthorne. “Can we give (worthy projects) enough money to get them going? Or to get over the hump? Or to finish their project? “We’re going to be able to make a big difference in a lot of projects.” Past projects – such as new boards for the Wawanesa rink, or training dolls for the nursing program at Assiniboine Community College – are great examples of the money making an important impact, she said. The BACF is now actively taking applications for 2018 grants, with a deadline set for Sept. 28. You can learn more about the granting process by visiting their website at bacf.ca or by calling Kempthorne at 204-571-0529. Working for the foundation and seeing the generosity of people such as the Peters family has truly opened Kempthorne’s eyes to the good people are capable of, she added. “Thank you doesn’t seem enough,” she said. “It actually makes me think different about giving. I may never be in the same position as the Peters, but it makes me think of how I can give back.”

Bev Cumming (left), chair of the Brandon Area Community Foundation, accepted $1 million of shares in the Cando Rail Services on June 26 from Gord and Diane Peters (right). The Peters previously submitted a donation of the same amount in 2009. The money will be used for various Westman community projects seeking grants through the BACF over the next two decades.

Random Musings: Dear P.M. Trudeau and Pres. Trump

John LoRegio COLUMNIST: RANDOM MUSINGS FROM THE KEYBOARD

Dear guys, First off, I wasn’t sure how to begin this letter without insulting either one of you or starting an international incident, so I made it multiple-choice. I know you both have busy schedules since running a country can take up a large part of your day, leaving little time for selfies, a round of golf, or the occasional encounter with a female. In your private conversations, have you two ever discussed your meetings with the opposite sex? Mr. President, your trysts with alleged Russian prostitutes and Playboy models have been outlined in the “fake” media. Mr. Prime Minister, while championing female causes, you apparently and

allegedly aren’t above having a grope. Have you given each other advice on payment plans (the “fake” news calls it hush money)? But I digress. Although your semi-private lives could be more interesting than your public ones, the guys around the poker table and even some ordinary folks are starting to worry. Some have cancelled their trips to the Excited States after reading stories about American customs agents detaining Canadians who don’t have all of their documentation and are “security risks.” A minivan full of kids and two harried parents could cause an incident at a restaurant or service station as they wait to use the washroom and buy back some of that cheaper Canadian gasoline and beer we send you. I didn’t realize that has been classed as a “security risk.” Mr. President, if we promise not to buy any American shoes, will you let us come into your country worry-free? Not all of us are national security risks. However, one of the poker guys who

lived in Missouri for a few years could be a double agent since he likes American beer. (Should your border security want to detain him until after our next game, we won’t mind since he wins a majority of the time.) Mr. Prime Minister; if you could spare a few minutes from a joint session of cabinet and the legalization of marijuana, we would like you to take on an issue for us. With NAFTA talks stalled as of this writing, we gentlemen of the poker table have a grave concern about tariffs that are being imposed. While our grocery bills go up – as will the cost of just about everything else – we have a concern that touches us very personally. The playing cards we use are genuine, Las Vegas decks recycled, repackaged and resold. Even the poker chips we use are from Vegas and the tariffs could raise the price to the point we may have to use buttons as chips, something that hasn’t been done since we were kids or ever. So, while you talk about steel, aluminum and national security, the average

resident seeking a cheap deck of cards is being hurt in the pocket book; not to mention some of us with jobs reliant on cross-border trade could lose work. So guys, perhaps you could meet somewhere, have a beer, smoke a joint and play a round of golf while resolving your differences. I noticed neither one of you put tariffs on beer – a smart move since

beer sales could spike as more and more residents on either side drown their sorrows. Considering marijuana is still illegal, I doubt criminals would pay a tariff. Justin and Donald, you could make history by becoming the first national leaders to have your pictures hanging in the mancave that hosts our poker game. They would hang

in prominence next to the poker-playing dogs and the Queen (one of our guys is a staunch monarchist and it is his house). How could you not want that as your legacy? Yours Truly or Sincerely, John (on behalf of the guys) Thought for the week: Wouldn’t an ice cream cone be good about now?

If I had to choose, a highlight of the Doors Open Event for me would have to be the guided walking tours,” said Heritage Marketing Coordinator, Shelby Nohr. “We have two walking tours this year; the Brandon Cemetery Walking Tour and the Nature Walk. Both of the tour guides are very knowledgeable and love to interact with community members. That connection with people while learning about Brandon’s heritage is a highlight of the weekend for me.” With a successful event in the books last year, the expectations are that people will enjoy themselves again this year. Nohr says there was lots of great feedback from the event one year ago. “A double documentary showing took place on Friday evening leading into the weekend. These documentaries were both about the history of Brandon” said Nohr.”People really enjoyed this kickoff to the weekend. We had a higher attendance than what was originally expected. People also really enjoyed the self-guided walking tours, the guided walking tours, and the fa-

cility tours. We have all of these features again this year, so I am expecting that people will enjoy themselves throughout the weekend.” In a schedule mirroring last year, there will be two guided walking tours, the facility tours, a Friday night kickoff featuring a double documentary showing and a special music presentation. “There will also be an Indigenous Peoples Site on the Saturday again this year. However, there will be more elements added to this site,” shared Nohr. “This site will feature a Pow Wow demonstration, Knowledge Keepers from Indigenous Nations, crafts table, the Brandon Indian Residential School Mobile Learning Centre, as well as free Bannock and honey. This site will take place on the east side of the A.R McDiarmid Civic Complex located at 638 Princess Avenue.” The primary objective of the weekend is to give people a chance to extend their knowledge of Brandon’s history and the interesting stories and people that make up our cities past. The east door of the A.R. McDiarmid Civic Complex will be open for the Friday night kickoff on July 20th at 5:45 p.m. The evening will include a double documentary showing as well as a special music presentation. The documentaries being featured are, “Before Brandon: The Grand Rapids of the Assiniboine” and “In The Archives: A Prairie Public History Production.” In addition, the event will host the premiere of Brandon musician Brent White’s original song, “Snow Train 1916”. The showing will be located in the Cultural Resource Centre.

The ‘Say What You See’ game: Stopping anxiety in mid-stream INTERIM EDITOR, WESTMAN JOURNAL

I could feel the tension building in my chest; a ball of anxiety I remember experiencing daily while in the depths of my depression just two years ago. I had work deadlines to meet, sound and music equipment to prepare and load for an upcoming band gig, household chores to do, appointments to get to and a plethora of other thoughts swirling around in the blizzard that filled my mind. As I loaded the van with a bass amp, I realized this stress was not only unhelpful, but unnecessary. I was not in any physical danger. I was simply letting my worries overwhelm my consciousness. They buzzed around my head like a swarm of black flies on a hot day in the forest. The worst thing to do at that point was try to out-think my stress. After all, I could only accomplish one task at time.

In his book The Easy Way to Mindfulness (Arcturus Publishing Ltd, 2017), author and addictions clinician Allen Carr says attempting to tackle your anxieties can run counter to relieving yourself from them. “That is like saying the way to untangle a bundle of string is to pull hard on the ends,” he writes. “All you achieve with that approach is tighter knots and a more baffling tangle.” The answer, therefore, is mindfulness; getting into the moment at hand rather than concerning yourself with what you failed to accomplish in the past or what you need to accomplish in the future. Enter what I call, the “Say What You See” game. The human brain has, literally, unimaginable power, however one of its shortfalls is that it cannot focus on two thoughts at once. As one stops to figure out how to dissolve anxiety, you realize that each worry comes at you as succinctly different thoughts, flashes of “I have to do this. I should have done that. I need to

We’re W ee’re hheererefor he fofror you. W ’rreehere

of my to-do list, one by one and stress free. “We worry about things that are mere thoughts. Those fears that keep us awake at night are not reality,” Carr says. “They may be triggered by real events or situations and real threats, but the fears we create are illusions; they are not real. Reality is what is happening to you in the present; the things you can see, hear, smell, taste and touch. By allowing your mind to become obsessed with thoughts of regret (the past), or worry and anxiety (the future), rather than reality (the present), you invite stress to take the upper hand.” I have found that the “Say What You See” game has been an invaluable tool in my arsenal for quelling all kinds of worry, stress, anxiety, depressed states and inappropriate emotions. Should the game not work in just a few minutes, I know it is time to step back and meditate, refocussing myself to the present. As a freelance writer and independent musician, I am reliant on

find those. I can’t forget them.” In mid-stride out of my music studio, I stopped and dropped the load of music equipment, stepped onto the lawn of my backyard, stood tall and took a deep breath. “Hot tub, pine tree, deck chair, fire-pit, green grass, sunshine, sidewalk, white truck, frisbee, firewood,” I said out loud to myself, listing everything I saw as I saw it without thinking. The tension in my chest began to ease, but I continued; “Pine cone, blue van, tin roof, pergola, wooden steps, camper, tulips, ivy, garden shed.” I was literally speaking my anxiety out of existence by telling myself what I saw with my eyes in that moment. I took control of my mind and the stress seemed to drift away into the ether. After about two minutes, I felt settled and calm again. I took another cleansing breath, then told myself all I had to be concern with right now was loading that van. The pressure in my chest subsided and I went on through the rest of my day, checking things off

myself, alone, to find, query, book and complete my work. I do not need a thousand flies — those annoying thoughts that endlessly flash, one to another — buzzing around my head while I’m trying to be productive. And as someone who has suffered from depression, the last thing I want is to waste my focus on the stress of driving those flies away. Using the “Say What You See” practice, I have learned to live with the blizzard of thoughts that can overwhelm anyone at times. It clears and resets my mind onto the task at hand and recharges my batteries in an instant. Breath; say what you see; breath. Try it the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed. Chris L.

Would you like red, white or rosé?

Would you care for red, white or rosé I inquired, but I already knew the answer, or thought I did. His reply of “rosé” left me nothing less than stunned. Had I been sitting I would have fallen off my chair. It was a sign. Rosé has taken hold and the gaining popularity and appreciation of the wine is occurring everywhere and affecting even the most hardened of consumers. I would have referred to this fellow as a red wine “lifer”. He started with big, bold California Cabernet Sauvignon and rarely choose something else, in actual fact, when he consumed a different varietal it really wasn’t much of a choice because he would be drinking somewhere else where the wine selection was not his to make. A short while ago he was introduced to Pinot Noir and came to like it. Also a shock but not as breathtaking as this. If he is drinking pink then there is hope for others, including those that are hardpressed to approach white.

Up until recently rosé or pink wines were consumed mainly by novice wine drinkers who preferred their wines lightbodied and sweet. Either White Zinfandel or its offshoot blush were the sole rosé available on many wine lists, and they still are, although less frequently. More and more wine lists offer a dry rose option. White Zinfandel is, for one thing, not white, but a blush pink whose production began as a “happy accident”. Lucky producer, as this “accident” made the producer significant money and re-known and continues to do do. Who would have thought it possible? They certainly didn’t. Currently medium-sweet rosé sales are dropping which corresponds to increased sales of dry and off-dry wines. The most famous and recognizable and highquality rosé wine hails from France, specifically Provence. The rosés of Lirac and Tavel are also classic rosé. Decades ago quality declined, more recently, since the 90’s, wine quality has risen by leaps and bounds, driven by consumer demand. Rosés from these areas of France are generally higher in price than those found elsewhere. No matter. There is also great value to be found within France and elsewhere. Rosé can be quite easy on the budget and is often great value. Although there are various methods used for rosé production a com-

mon method is saigńee, where wine is bleed from a vat during red wine production therefore increasing the red wines skin to juice ratio which resulted in red wines with a darker colour and more intense flavour. Essentially rosé was a byproduct of red production and the quality of rosé reflected this. Increasingly rosé is produced as rosé and quality has vastly improved as a result. I have been promoting (possibly best described as harping about) rose as a year-round wine for some time as rosé it is not only quite tasty but also equally at home in warm or cool weather and one of the best all-around wine and food pairing partners. Rosé is a fabulous accompaniment to Mediterranean cuisine, ham, turkey, pasta, creamy and garlic-laden pasta and seafood. This versatility is further enhanced by the fact rosé is available in a wide range of sweetness levels. In general, French wines are reliably dry, as are the majority of roses from European or “Old World” countries such as Italy, Spain and Portugal. Perhaps we should celebrate the rise of rose as they do in New York by having a “Pinknic” where the festival rules are to wear pink, drink pink and “have fun”. I think I could manage it. You? The following wines are those I have tasted and personally favor. Many I have reviewed in the past, also past vintag-

es. I purchased a number of newly listed products and those I have not sampled from previous years. I’m am doing my very best to try them and I’m certain I will manage it. Pluma Vinho Verde, Portugal, $10.99. Great value. Fetzer Vineyards Adorada Rosé, USA, $19,99. Newly listed. Belleruche Cotes du Rhone Rosé, France, $16.99

Mare Magnum Crudo Negroamaro Organic Rosé, $16.49. Newly listed. Lovely but not in the same league as Crudo white. Chateau Gassier Sables D’Azur, France, $18.02 Caves d’Esclans Sacha Lichine Whispering Angel, France, $33.91. This wine was brought in last year. A testament to its popularity and, despite the price tag, it is now

more widely available (at three Brandon MLCC locations). Le Poussin Rosé, France, $16.40. Charming with more ripe red fruit flavours than many rosés. Principe de Viana Edicion Rosa, Spain, $18.95. New listing. Marqués de Cáceres, Spain, $14.99. Nice and delicate. Much lighter than previous vintages.

Serve banana coffee cake with a twist Waiting for bananas to ripen for baking can try anyone’s patience. Laurie McNamara, author of “Simply Scratch: 120 Wholesome Homemade Recipes Made Easy” admits she doesn’t have the patience for bananas to brown and that roasting them in the oven speeds up the process. That process is on display in McNamara’s recipe for “Roasted Banana Coffee Cake,” which makes a great addition to breakfast tables and brunches.

Roasted Banana Coffee Cake

Serves 8 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 1 tablespoon at room temperature for the pan 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 2 bananas 3⁄4 cup chopped pecans 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 11⁄2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg 1 cup granulated sugar 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 1⁄4 cup sour cream 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter a 9-inch round cake pan with the 1 tablespoon room temperature butter and dust with the granulated sugar and tip out any excess. Place the bananas on a small-rimmed baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool. In a small bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and nutmeg through a fine-mesh strainer into a medium bowl. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar on low speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, and then add the roasted bananas, sour cream and vanilla. Beat until incorporated. With the mixer running on low speed, spoon in the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle evenly with the pecan topping. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean with a few crumbs attached. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Enjoy a refreshing breakfast Breakfast has long since been dubbed “the most important meal of the day.” While some might dispute that distinction, there’s no disputing that a delicious breakfast can be a great way to begin a day. Freshness can go a long way toward making breakfast something special. For example, fresh peaches make this recipe for “Peach Bruschetta with Blue Cheese” from Christopher Hirsheimer’s “The San Francisco Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market Cookbook” something to savor. The dish also works as an appetizer and can be made with nectarines.

Peach Bruschetta with Blue Cheese

Serves 4 4 slices country bread 2 peaches Extra-virgin olive oil for brushing 1⁄4 pound blue cheese, gorgonzola or Blue Castello cheese

WELCOME ONE AND ALL! Worship Time 10:30 AM with Spirit Kid’s Club

ADVERTISING WORKS! CALL 204-725-0209

Preheat the broiler. Arrange the bread slices on a rimmed baking sheet, slip under the broiler and toast, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. This should take only a few minutes. While the bread is toasting, halve the peaches lengthwise, pit them and then peel each half. Cut each half lengthwise into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices, keeping the shape of each half intact. When the bread is ready, remove from the broiler and brush each slice on both sides with olive oil. Spread one-fourth of the cheese on each slice of warm bread, place a sliced peach half on top, and serve.

Wheaties Join Forces at Avalanche Development Camp Branden Crowe SPORTS WRITER, WESTMAN JOURNAL

Ty Lewis

It’s not out of the ordinary for two hockey teammates from different cities to lace up the skates in the summer against one another in a scrimmage. It is, however, rare to do it while wearing an NHL jersey. For Brandon Wheat King forwards Ty Lewis and Cole Reinhardt, that situation came to fruition last week in Denver, Colorado where both took part in the Colorado Avalanche annual prospects development camp. The five-day camp featured on-ice sessions, medical and physical testing, team building exercises and culminated in a three-on-three tournament in Fort Collins, Colo. While Reinhardt was an undrafted free agent attending his first NHL showcase, Lewis is

slowly becoming a seasoned veteran, skating in his second development camp and third camp overall with the team that signed him to a contract last summer. “Being there last year helps me a lot,” said Lewis. “Everyone in Colorado has been extremely good to me, and I’ve had so much help this past year, I believe it’s helped me grow as a player.” Lewis quickly put his name on the Avalanche radar after going undrafted in Chicago at last year’s NHL Entry Draft. After accepting a camp invite, Lewis quickly earned himself a contract and another invitation to the club’s fall training camp where he got a cup of coffee playing in the NHL Exhibition Season. Meanwhile, Reinhardt is hoping for a similar path. The 18-year-old winger was held off the NHL draft board in Dallas, Tex. at the end of June, but isn’t overly concerned with the snub. “Not getting drafted doesn’t bother me much,” Reinhardt said with a chuckle. “Nothing in my hockey career has ever come easy, so this is another challenge for me. If anything, it lights a fire in you to go out and earn that NHL contract.” Both Reinhardt and Lewis are expected to do some heavy lifting for the Wheat Kings this upcoming season. Reinhardt more than quadrupled his point output from his rookie season, scoring 19

times and adding 15 assists for 34 points. For Lewis, if professional hockey isn’t an option in his overage season, he hopes to continue building on his impressive WHL career numbers. “My main focus right now is to try and play professional hockey this season,” added Lewis. “It’s been my goal since I was a kid and I feel like I’m getting closer. However...I do believe that Brandon will be a very strong team this year and hopefully push for another championship.” While Lewis is hoping that his time in the Mile High City earns him a shot at the next level, Reinhardt views his first professional hockey experience as a real eyeopener. “There is satisfaction in knowing that you’re almost at the NHL level,” said Reinhardt. “You can see that you have the same skills as some of the older guys there. I haven’t achieved anything though, and there is still heaps of work to do to get to that level, but it warms your heart pulling on an NHL jersey.” Reinhardt and Lewis weren’t the only connection to the Wheat Kings at the Avs camp. Brandon’s first import pick from last summer’s CHL Import Draft, Martin Kaut attended camp and signed a three-year, entry-level contract when it ended. He is eligible to play in Brandon full time this season.

Inaugural 100th Meridian Concert set for tonight Chris L. Istace INTERIM EDITOR, WESTMAN JOURNAL

The East End Community Centre at 405 Park Street will host the first-ever City of Brandon 100th Meridian Concert tonight, featuring an indie-alternative band from Winnipeg and a Western Manitoba, husband and wife pop duo. The event, which will take place near the East End Water Tower, is a project put together through the City of Brandonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Development department and the Brandon Pride Committee. The concerts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a second show is scheduled to occur in early August â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are free for all ages and will include complimentary fresh bannock with honey, and a beer gardens for audience members aged over 18. Showtime is 7 p.m. Should the weather not cooperate, the show will move to the Central United Church at 327, 8th Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The City of Brandon has a long-standing history of putting music performances on with events such as Music in the Park on Tuesday nights, where local musicians can build their talent and more established artists have a venue to further develop their skills,â&#x20AC;? said City of Brandon Community Development Coordinator Richard Greer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done something similar to (the 100th Meridian Concerts) the last few years, but it was previously known as the Summer Lights Concerts.

said Greer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These events allow the groups an opportunity to highlight themselves, promote what they do in Brandon and grow.â&#x20AC;? The naming of the series comes from the fact that the 100th meridian runs through the city and is a major theme of a popular song by the iconic Canadian rock band, the Tragically Hip, Greer said. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show will feature Yes We Mystic, a five-piece group from Winnipeg that has melded various genres â&#x20AC;&#x201C; included folk, rock and rhythm and blues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; into an indie-alternative sound. The band toured the country four years ago in support of their first EP, Floods and Fires (Head in the Sand, 2013). In 2015, they released their first, full-length recording, Vestige. The Young Pixels, a garage-pop duo, is opening for Yes We Mystic. Next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th Meridian Concert, which is being hosted by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Development Department in partnership with the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba, is set for Aug. 9 at a downtown location. Manitoba-born Indigenous singer and Juno Award nominee IskwĂŠ will headline the event with singer-songwriter Sonia Eidse opening the show. More details about that show will be released later this month. The concert is being run in conjunction with the launch of the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitobaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billboard art series.

The event, which will take place near the East End Water Tower, is a project put together through the City of Brandonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Development department and the Brandon Pride Committee. The concerts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a second show is scheduled to occur in early August â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are free for all ages and will include complimentary fresh bannock with honey, and a beer gardens for audience members aged over 18. Showtime is 7 p.m. Should the weather not cooperate, the show will move to the Central United Church at 327, 8th Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The City of Brandon has a long-standing history of putting music performances on with events such as Music in the Park on Tuesday nights, where local musicians can build their talent and more established artists have a venue to further develop their skills,â&#x20AC;? said City of Brandon Community Development Coordinator Richard Greer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done something similar to (the 100th Meridian Concerts) the last few years, but it was previously known as the Summer Lights Concerts. We changed the name this season to allow the Summer Lights Festival organization more

said Greer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These events allow the groups an opportunity to highlight themselves, promote what they do in Brandon and grow.â&#x20AC;? The naming of the series comes from the fact that the 100th meridian runs through the city and is a major theme of a popular song by the iconic Canadian rock band, the Tragically Hip, Greer said. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show will feature Yes We Mystic, a five-piece group from Winnipeg that has melded various genres â&#x20AC;&#x201C; included folk, rock and rhythm and blues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; into an indie-alternative sound. The band toured the country four years ago in support of their first EP, Floods and Fires (Head in the Sand, 2013). In 2015, they released their first, full-length recording, Vestige. The Young Pixels, a garage-pop duo, is opening for Yes We Mystic. Next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th Meridian Concert, which is being hosted by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Development Department in partnership with the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba, is set for Aug. 9 at a downtown location. Manitoba-born Indigenous singer and Juno Award nominee IskwĂŠ will headline the event with singer-songwriter Sonia Eidse opening the show. More details about that show will be released later this month. The concert is being run in conjunction with the launch of the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitobaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billboard art series.
