Superstar Jann Arden rocks Weyburn stage
Photo 6931 — Greg Nikkel
Singer Jann Arden sang one of her well-known hits during her concert on Tuesday evening at the Cugnet Centre, before a full crowd of close to 900 people. She was a featured performer for the Weyburn Concert Series, and her Weyburn stop was one of only two in Saskatchewan on her current tour. Arden sang many of her hits as well as songs from her albums and her newest release over two and a half hours.
Bratrud Ag Commodities takes home Golden Sheaf By April Zielke The Weyburn Chamber of Commerce presented Mark and Bobbie Bratrud with the Golden Sheaf award on Tuesday night at the annual Farmer Appreciation Banquet. Since 1994, the Weyburn Chamber has been presenting this award to candidates who best meet the criteria of innovation and entrepreneurship, longevity, professional involvement, community involvement and stewardship. The Bratruds are the fourth generation on their family farm and this year marked their 120th anniversary. The farm couple’s strengths come from using a great deal of innovation on their farm. They have been using variable
rate technology for fertilizer and seed application for the past 10 years. They also use soil characteristics maps and implement GPS technology. This allows them to manage their field inputs in a cost effective and efficient way. The stewardship aspect of farming is a high priority for the couple. For the past 30 years, the farm has been using zero till practices. As well, they effectively use variable rate fertilizer application practices in order to reduce harmful impact to the environment. The couple both mentioned that while they may be the face of the farm, they owe a lot of credit to their family who started up the farm in 1889 and to the friends and family who continually help with their

farm now. “We both grew up on family farms so we’ve both learned lots from the farms that we came from, but we operate the farm right now with my father who has been a good source of information and guidance for us. We make our own decisions and farm how we want to farm, but we get support from lots of people.” Along with farming, the couple is actively involved in the community. This includes the Young Fellows Club, 4-H, the Family Place, Queen Elizabeth School, Weyburn Skating Club and the Weyburn Rotary Music Festival. Mark is also a founding member of Comtrax Logistics Solutions, which is working to “build a 260-plus railcar CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR OCTOBER GIFT CERTIFICATE WINNER!

track system with a loop to allow a grain-handling facility to be built near Weyburn on the CP Rail’s Soo Line.” From 2000-2010, the couple simultaneously worked on and off the farm. Mark worked in the grain industry from working in grain elevators in Alberta to managing facilities, grain buying, merchandising and managing transportation. Bobbie worked as a sales rep and agronomist for numerous companies in both Alberta and Saskatchewan. Their previous business experiences contribute greatly to the successful expansion of their farm. The Bratruds grow canola, durum, hard red spring wheat, red lentils, barley and soybeans on their farm.
Bobbie said harvest this year went better than they first expected it would. “We actually had a pretty good year for harvest weather wise. We were fortunate enough to be done harvest before the weather turned bad. We had average crops which were quite a bit better than what we were looking at early in the year, as it was pretty dry, so we are just thankful for the crops that we did have.” As for the future of farming, Bobbie says that the area has a bright future. “Farming is continuing to get better and we are getting to be more productive each year.” In regards to their own farm however, no big plans Continued on page 5

Remembrance Day is all about Families
Greg Nikkel email@example.com
emembrance Day is about family, when you get right down to it. War is about politics, and the greed of nations and fighting for a nation’s position in the world — but when the armies march off to fight, and the ships and submarines meet on the seas, and fighter planes and bombers fly overhead, it is the sons and the daughters of families at home who do the fighting, and the bleeding and the dying. This truth was brought to the fore by Bengough resident Jerry Coubrough, who read a letter from his uncle John, written about the death of his brother Simon at the battle of Vimy Ridge, to the students at the Weyburn Comprehensive School for their service of Remembrance. This was one of the defining moments of the First World War, and was particularly significant for Canada in terms of the importance of this battle to the eventual outcome of this war. As Jerry introduced the letter, he pointed out that there were relatives, descendants of the Coubrough family, who were in the audience, who were direct relations to the man who wrote the letter from the battlefields of France. This is true of every war, and every battle, as sons and daughters fought and in those rare moments of quiet and reflection, they wrote letters with trembling
hands as their thoughts went to their loved ones at homes, whether they were sweethearts, moms, dads, brothers and sisters, cousins, best friends — in short, those people who meant the most to them. It was for these people that the young men and women, the best and the brightest of their generation, were in the muddy trenches of the First World War, battling on June Beach in the Second World War, or in personnel carriers in Kandahar on patrol. There are thousands of young men and women in danger zones today, putting their lives on the line, to make or preserve peace or to end an armed conflict, just as there were in the battles of a century ago, and in the many conflicts that have occurred since that time. When a Canadian died during one of the world wars, often they were buried where they fell, because they were part of the hundreds and thousands of casualties who bloodied the ground as they battled. Today, they are brought home and are driven along the Highway of Heroes, with people stopping to pay homage to them as the hearses pass. In every case, there are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, wives, husbands and children who mourn the passing of a life lived well. On November 11, as the clock strikes the 11th hour, every person should take a moment to remember the sacrifices made, the blood that was shed, and say thank you for what they did for us.
Pausing to remember By Linda Wegner This month our country commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. I wasn’t around for that but around the world, millions of people who hoped and longed for a war-free world, celebrated. Sadly, it was not to be and just a few years later our soldiers found themselves involved in yet more hostilities. I still have some vague memories of the closing days of that Second World War. I was just two years old then but over the ensuing months and years I would hear conversation centering around rations, sacrifices and soldiers liberating Holland. It was a somber time, a mix of relief, celebration and irreplaceable losses. I have chosen to keep those and subsequent memories as honest and clear as possible for one simple reason: I am thankful beyond description to those men and women who gave their all, in order to provide me and my family with
the gift of freedom. Why would one forget that? In an almost ironic twist of events, I married into a family that not only partially survived but lived in the middle of and through the war. I’ve told this story often but I simply can’t and don’t want to forget. After losing their way of living and too many of their family members they remain incredibly loyal to each other and equally grateful to the congregation of a church in Winnipeg who enabled them to immigrate and stay together as orphaned siblings. How can one ever forget that! And yet, we humans do forget. Though it’s almost old news now, it was just several weeks ago that our hearts were saddened by the Philadelphia massacre of worshipping Jews. “Do not oppress foreigners; you know what it’s like to be a foreigner; remember your own experience….” Exodus 23:9. God, help us never forget!

funding for families with financial obstacles.” During each Goals for KidSport season, KidSport volunteers also host 11 SJHL game nights, where all funds raised stay in the community. “The league is extremely proud to partner with SaskEnergy and its Network Members in raising funds and awareness for KidSport,” said Bill Chow, President of the SJHL. “This is another way our league gives back to the communities where we play.” In an added friendly competitive twist, SJHL teams enthusiastically compete each season for the KidSport Cup, awarded to the team that scores the most home goals. Last year’s KidSport Cup Champion was the 2017-18 Humboldt Broncos, who sat on top of the league with 102 home goals when the 1,000th goal was reached. The team will be forever remembered as champions of KidSport Saskatchewan. “KidSport Saskatchewan would like to thank SaskEnergy for their partnership and commitment to kids,” said Jerry Shoemaker, volunteer chair of KidSport Saskatchewan. “Because of your continued support, we are able to get more kids off of the sidelines and into the game, strengthening our communities and building healthy, active leaders.” Goals for KidSport is dedicated to helping KidSport in achieving its goal – making sure that all kids can play.
Two stars for Red Wings goalie
The fifth season began this week for Goals for KidSport, a collaboration between SaskEnergy, the SaskEnergy Network Members, KidSport Saskatchewan, and the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL). The program raises funds in communities across the province to reduce the financial pressures some families face, so that all kids have the opportunity to participate in sports. For every home goal scored by an SJHL team (up to 1,000) during the regular season, $20 is donated to local KidSport chapters. Created in 2014, Goals for KidSport has raised more than $111,000 for KidSport chapters across the province, helping 560 Saskatchewan kids take part in local sports programs. This continues to build on SaskEnergy’s past support for KidSport through programs such as Catch for KidSport and the Saskatchewan Roughriders Charity Calendar. Over the last 20 years, these programs have collectively raised nearly $1.3 million, helping over 6,500 Saskatchewan kids. “Participation in sports gives kids the opportunity to learn vital life skills such as teamwork and responsibility; it builds the confidence and character kids need for success now and in their future,” said Gene Makowsky, on behalf of Bronwyn Eyre, Minister responsible for SaskEnergy. “This type of grassroots fundraising is the backbone of KidSport

Two home games for Weyburn Red Wings
By April Zielke This past weekend the Weyburn Red Wings played two home games. On Friday they hosted the Kindersley Klippers and on Saturday the Battlefords North Stars came to play. Before the game on Friday, the Wings were on a 10-game losing streak. Between players being injured or suspended, things weren’t adding up for the team. However, Sean Olson, Burke Johnstone and Zac Gladu returned from injuries Friday and the team was finally starting to look like their old selves again. Late in the first period, Gladu took a shot on net, but it rebounded off the Klippers goalie pads. Ben Hiltz was quick on the rebound and chipped it out to Carson Scheschuk, who fired it into the right side of the net. The score remained 1-0 up until the second when Olson handed Justin Plett the puck, who then deked out the goalie and scored. That ended the scoring for the night as the Red Wings ended their slump with a 2-0 victory. “We had a few guys come back from injuries and they played a huge role, but the boys all want-
ed it today. We all worked really hard and it worked out,” said Plett on what this game had that the past 10 were missing. Saturday’s game against the North Stars was a different story though. Early in the first, Gladu scored a miraculous shorthanded unassisted goal, but the North Stars answered back with a shorthanded goal of their own. North Stars scored another one in the second, starting the third period with a score of 2-1 in Battleford’s favour. Just one minute into the third, a passing sequence between Scheschuk and Cade Kowalski allowed Olson to tie up the score. Just when it looked like the game might go into overtime, North Stars scored a seemingly questionable goal to end the match at 3-2 for the North Stars. Red Wings will play back-to-back games against the Notre Dame Hounds this weekend, with Friday being the home game and Saturday will be played in Wilcox. Watch for Friday’s Red Wings Featured Player video that will be posted on the Review’s website and our Facebook page.
SJHL partners with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) announced it has renewed its partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to help find the cause and cure of Type 1 Diabetes. The SJHL is pleased to announce the month of November has been designated as “Diabetes Month”. The Weyburn Red Wings entire team, along with coach Wes Rudy, took part in the annual JDRF walk held on Sunday afternoon in downtown Weyburn. The walk raised $11,000 in total, and team captain Cade Kowalski spoke on behalf of the team. During November, each SJHL player will be wearing a JDRF sticker on their helmet. “This is a great partnership to help youth of all ages as World Diabetes Day is also held in the month of November,” said Bill Chow, President of the SJHL. “Many Saskatchewan residents are unaware of how far-reaching Type 1 Diabetes really is,” said Kaleb Dahlgren, honourary ambassador for JDRF and player with York University. “Not only does diabetes directly impact over 300,000 Saskatchewan residents, it has a profound impact on their families and how they go about their daily lives. We
are dedicated to finding a cure for this disease, and we certainly appreciate the tremendous support of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League to help us reach our goal,” he said. Type 1 Diabetes, the most severe form of diabetes, is a non-preventable autoimmune disease. It can occur at any age but is most commonly diagnosed from infancy to the late 30s. Unlike type 2 diabetes, it cannot be prevented by diet, exercise or medication and living with the disease demands constant blood testing and regulating. A child living with type 1 diabetes requires approximately 1,463 needles a year and 2,190 finger pokes a year to test their blood sugar – it imposes a very structured lifestyle on a family to adequately monitor the disease, and, avoid devastating complications. “ C a n a d i a n s l iv i n g with Type 1 Diabetes are insulin-dependent for life with the constant threat of developing complications such as blindness, end-stage kidney disease, nerve damage, heat attack, stroke, amputation and even death. Insulin allows a person with diabetes to stay alive, but, it does not cure the disease, nor does it prevent its eventual complications.

Townspeople sing about being ‘Thwacked’ in Haig musical
Photo 6656 — Greg Nikkel
The cast of the musical “Thwacked” sang a group number during a rehearsal for the performance by Haig School at the Tommy Douglas Centre. The musical was staged on Thursday for the family and the public, with a full stage of performers singing in a different version of the tale of the sky is falling.
Top Weyburn cadet, Bailey Gaignard, retires from the corps Chief Warrant Officer Bailey Gaignard retired from the Royal Canadian Army Cadet program in Weyburn after spending five years as a cadet. Bailey Gaignard lives in Estevan and commutes to Weyburn each week to attend cadets. CWo. Gaignard has been the regimental sergeant major of 2302 Weyburn Army Cadets for the past three years, and has served with pride and distinction. Gaignard started the cadet program at the age of 13 and quickly rose through the ranks, displaying outstanding leadership and problemsolving skills. A few highlights from his career include being one of 70 cadets from across Canada who was selected to attend an international exchange to the United Kingdom for
six weeks, and he was one of 15 cadets in Canada to attend the National Expedition, where he canoed from Whitehorse, Yukon, to Dawson City, and hiked in the mountains of the Yukon. CWo. Gaignard was awarded the Army Cadet Service Medal, and Bar representing five years of service, and The Lord Strathcona Medal, which is the highest award which can be bestowed upon a cadet in recognition of exemplary performance in physical and military training. Gaignard is planning to join the Canadian Armed Forces, to work in the field of mechanics. Warrant officer Tiesen Dreger, who is 17 years old, will now assume the top position within 2302 RCACC as the regimental sergeant major.

Hunters, fishermen urged to mark Heritage Day The abundant fish and wildlife in this province is primarily due to the joint contributions of licensed hunters, anglers and trappers who are on the ground supporting provincial conservation activities. That is why the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation (SWF) is encouraging everyone to celebrate our heritage with Saskatchewan Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Heritage day on Thursday, November 15. “With over 250,000
Saskatchewan residents participating in hunting, angling and trapping every year,” said Darrell Crabbe, executive director. “These heritage activities not only provide huge quality of life benefits, but also generate over $600 million in economic spinoff annually for this province.” The SWF is inviting individuals and businesses alike to participate in honouring the Saskatchewan men and women impacting conservation and
raise awareness around their contributions to fish, wildlife and habitat conservation by wearing camouflage clothing during their 2018 #CamoDay celebration on Nov. 15. “Hunting, fishing and trapping have always been an important part of our heritage in Saskatchewan,” Environment Minister and Weyburn-Big Muddy MLA Dustin Duncan said. “They are traditions that are passed down over generations, and now we have
DUSTIN DUNCAN, MLA
a new generation of hunters, anglers and trappers serving as stewards of our environment. We’re strong supporters of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation and its efforts on Camo Day to raise awareness of fish, wildlife and habitat conservation.” Anyone can take part, and we especially encourage those in the hunting, angling and trapping community to wear their camo and share their stories with friends and colleagues.

Woman honoured to be chosen as War Mother By Greg Nikkel The first wreath to be laid at Weyburn’s cenotaph on Nov. 11 will be by Susan Mailhiot, chosen to represent War Mothers for the Weyburn Legion at the Remembrance Day ceremonies.
Susan was chosen as her two husbands had both served in the Second World War, along with two brothers-in-law. “I was really privileged to be asked. I never expected it,” said Susan, who feels it is of vital import-
Weyburn Legion’s War Mother Susan Mailhiot was chosen to represent War Mothers by the Weyburn branch of the Royal Canadian Legion at this year’s Remembrance Day service on Nov.11. Both of her late husbands were veterans of the Second World War, as Bob Abel served in the Navy, and Lucien Mailhiot was in the Army, while brother-in-law John Abel was in the Air Force, and Harold Abel Review Photo 1234 — Greg Nikkel served in the Army.
ance that the sacrifices of past generations in wartime continue to be remembered and honoured. “It’s important particularly for the younger people that they remember the sacrifices that their parents and grandparents made,” she said. Noting that Legion members who were veterans are dwindling in numbers, she said, “Hopefully this is something that they will carry on.” Her first husband, Bob Abel, served in the Navy, and after he passed away, she remarried to Lucien Mailhiot, who had served in Army with a motorcycle unit. Bob first served in Regina after he enlisted in the Navy, and was sent to the naval base at Esquimalt, B.C., where he served on board a ship that did patrols for 10 or 20 miles off the coast of Vancouver. “While they were on patrol, that’s where they detected a Japanese submarine, and watched it for two weeks before it disappeared again,” said Susan, noting the ship never fired on or interacted with the sub out of concern that they might get torpedoed. After he was discharged from the Navy, he returned to Weyburn and worked at the Weyburn Mental Hospital, where he took training as a psychiatric nurse. Susan met him there as she was working as a psychiatric nurse at the time, and they were married in 1944. When their son Ron was born in 1945, she left her position to stay
at home with the baby. After Bob passed away, Susan had been a widow for around two decades when she met Lucien on the dance floor at the Weyburn Legion, and they got married in 1991. During the Second World War, Lucien led a platoon of soldiers who did nighttime patrols by motorcycle to get intelligence on the German forces and what they were doing. He was wounded in Sicily and spent some time in hospital recovering before returning to his unit, and he stayed with them until the end of the war, remaining in Europe for a time afterwards. Lucien was originally a farmer in the Alida area, and after his service in the war, he returned to farm-
ing. Two of Bob’s brothers served in the war. John Abel was in the air force stationed at St. Kitts in the Caribbean, and Harold Abel served in the army in Europe. While Susan was still married to Bob, they experienced a fire at their home on Prairie Avenue, and they lost many irreplaceable items, including Bob’s papers from the Navy, photos and many other items, such as a hockey stick that belonged to her son Doug that had been signed by the Montreal Canadiens. One of the results of this fire was that there is no photo of Bob in the Veterans Photo Gallery in the Vimy Room at the Legion, but there is of his two brothers, Harold and
John Abel. As the representative for War Mothers, Susan will be the first person to lay a wreath at the cenotaph on Nov. 11, leading off the wreath-laying ceremonies after the parade at 10:45 a.m. After the wreath-laying, the service will move indoors to the upper hall of the Legion. She will be introduced at the service and will have a place of honour on the stage with the other dignitaries, and following the service, the War Mother’s Luncheon will be hosted downstairs in the Legion Hall, to which all of the public is invited to attend. The War Mother and any family members in attendance will have a place of honour in the Vimy Room during the luncheon.

A letter from war to be shared at Remembrance Day
By Greg Nikkel A letter written about the death of a brother in the First World War, a result of the battle at Vimy Ridge, will be a poignant tribute during the Remembrance Day service on Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Weyburn branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. This year is the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, known at the time as the Great War and the “war to end all wars”, and services all across Canada will be acknowledging this major historical milestone. For the Weyburn service, Bengough resident Jerry Coubrough will be sharing a letter from one of his uncles, written during the First World War, and which was just found recently in a box of letters from his family. The Remembrance Day ceremonies will begin with the parade up Third Street to the cenotaph at 10:45 a.m., followed by two minutes of silence and the laying of the wreaths. The War Mother, Susan Mailhiot, will lay the first wreath, followed by dignitaries, then local organizations, individuals and businesses. The service will then move inside to the upper hall of the Legion, where the ceremonies will begin with the marching on of the Colour Guard, with the call to worship, an opening hymn and introduction of the War Mother. There will be greetings from dignitaries, including MLA Dustin Duncan, Mayor Marcel Roy and a represent-
ative of MP Robert Kitchen, and the community choir, Variations, will perform a couple of songs, led by Colleen Weimer. Rev. Tim MacKinnon of Calvary Baptist Church will give the address, and Coubrough will then share his uncle’s letter from the First World War. The letter concerns two of his father’s brothers, Simon and John, who were very close and enlisted together in the Army at Weyburn, and went on to train and to serve overseas together. The letter was written by John to his older brother back home in Canada about what happened to Simon the day he was shot at the Battle of Vimy Ridge. John marked his 23rd birthday while fighting at Vimy Ridge, and in the letter, he described finding his brother lying wounded, shot in the chest, in a foxhole. John carried him up out of the trench as he felt if he was able to get him help and shipped back to England, he would be all right — but he later found out by letter that Simon had died of his wounds. John also died, closer to the end of the war on Aug. 8, 1918 at a battle in France. Out of Jerry’s father’s family of nine boys and six girls, he had three uncles and his father all in the First World War, and of those, two came home. Up until this letter was found, he said there had always been a sort of mystery
around the two brothers who died in war, but the letter made clearer what happened. “I feel pretty sad about the letter. I feel like that part of my life was taken from me, as I never got to know my uncles,” said Coubrough, noting he feels this more around Remembrance Day. “Another thing I wondered, is how do parents handle that when they had four kids in war, and you know somebody’s probably not going to come home?” said Jerry. “The first time I read this letter, I cried,” he explained, noting how his uncle described the fighting and finding his beloved brother shot in the chest. Coubrough said he wants to share this as a way to remember how his family was impacted by the war that ended a century ago, and noted in this part of Saskatchewan, there are bound to be family and friends of his family around to hear what happened to the two brothers. He will also be sharing this letter at the Remembrance Day service at the Weyburn Comprehensive School today, Nov. 7, where a niece is a student. He is hoping the contents of the letter will bring home to people what happened on those battlefields a century ago, providing a reason why it’s still important that we stop and pay tribute today on Remembrance Day. “If you touch one heart, then you’ve done something, I feel,” he said.
One hundred years of remembrance This year marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that brought the First World War and its four years of armed conflict to an end. On November 11, 1918, representatives of France, Great Britain and Germany met in a railway carriage in France to sign the historic document, paving the way for the peace negotiations that would culminate in the Treaty of Versailles, a document drafted five months later. The anniversary of the Armistice was observed the next year in Great Britain and this tradition quickly spread to the other Allied Nations. The holiday was originally known as Armistice Day, but member states of the Commonwealth of Nations like Canada eventually adopted the name Remembrance Day. We commemorate on this date not only citizens who fought in the First World War but also those who fought in the Second World War and every other war and peacekeeping mission since. Although the Allies won the conflict, Armistice Day wasn’t a day of unabashed celebration. Given the unspeakable horrors and death tolls in World War I, and likewise in World War II, November 11 became a day of solemn commemoration. Hence the two minutes of silence we observe on this date, a tradition that goes back to the very first Armistice Day commemoration, in 1919.

Three ways of understanding Canada’s war contributions Living in a peaceful country like Canada, it’s easy to forget the wars of the 20th century in which our country’s freedom and harmony hung in the ba lance. On Remembrance Day, and throughout the year, we should engage with this past so that we can better appreciate the great sacrifices made by Canadians in these devas tating conflicts. Here are a few good ways to recon nect with this history. 1. Visit a war memorial There are over 6,000 war memorials in Canada, each with a unique story and signi ficance. These affecting and artistic constructions will inspire you to reflect on the soldiers who dedi
cated themselves to va rious war efforts and the histories they represent. 2. Discover the history To wholly appreciate the sacrifices of Canadian sol diers, we need to know who they were and why they were fighting. One way of learning about this is by visiting one of Cana da’s many military and war museums. Another way is by reading about the his tory. Some good places to start your research are the Military Heritage section of the Library and Ar chives Canada website and the History section of the Veteran Affairs Ca nada website.
Veterans are usually happy to tell you about their mili tary experience. By talking with them you’ll gratify their need to share their personal stories and also learn a meaningful bit of history you can keep alive by passing on to others. Additionally, you can sup port veterans in financial need by donating to organi zations like the Royal Ca nadian Legion and VETS Canada. Visit their web sites — legion.ca and vetscanda.org — for more information.
3. Speak with and support Canada’s veterans

Three Indigenous war heroes to salute on Remembrance Day Over 7,000 Indigenous Peoples in Canada served in the First and Second World Wars. Of the many who distinguished themselves during their service, here are three that stand out. 1. Tommy Prince Earning 11 medals in World War II and the Korean War, Tommy Prince of the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation is the most decorated Indigenous Canadian war veteran. He’s renowned for his marksmanship and covert abilities, skills he learned on the reserve from his father who was a hunter and a trapper. Among Prince’s numerous celebrated exploits was locating an enemy camp during a 72hour trek without food or water, an action that led to the capture of more than 1,000 German soldiers. 2. Charles Tompkins Charles Tompkins was one of many Indigenous “code tal-
kers” working for the Allies in World War II. A Métis who spoke fluent Cree, Tompkins was in charge of transmitting vital messages using a Cree code he helped develop. The practice involved one code talker translating a message into Cree and transmitting it by radio to a second code talker who would then translate the message back into English. This allowed the allies to share integral information with each other without exposing it to potential radio eavesdroppers. 3. Edith Anderson Monture A Mohawk from the Six Nations Grand River Reserve, Edith Anderson Monture was one of 14 Canadian nurses who served as part of the United States Army Nurse Corps in World War I. She worked at a hospital in France, treating soldiers injured in trench warfare and gas attacks. After the war, she became the first Indigenous woman to become a registered nurse in Canada.
Where do your poppy dollars go? Wearing a poppy is a good way to not only pay tribute to Canada’s veterans but
also to give back to them. The poppies sold every year in the weeks leading
up to Remembrance Day are provided by the Royal Canadian Legion, who use
the money collected to provide assistance to veterans. Here are some of the excellent uses to which this organization puts donations collected for Remembrance Day. Veteran transition programs For many veterans, returning to civilian life proves to be a challenge. They confront estranged connections with friends and family, feelings of isolation, difficulties adapting to new workplaces and mental illnesses like depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The Royal Canadian Legion helps fund the Veterans Transition Network, a program that assists veterans through the tumultuous period after leaving active duty, providing them with helpful tools and resources as well as a welcoming community.
Financial assistance and housing for veterans Some veterans have an especially difficult time adjusting to civilian life and end up homeless or at risk of homelessness. In addition to providing financial support to such individuals, the Legion supports numerous outreach programs, food banks, drop-in cen tres and meals-onwheels programs.
firm veterans. It also helps pay for accessibility modifications that assist veterans with disabilities.
Medical support The Legion provides funds for medical equipment, medical training and medical treatment focused on caring for injured and in-
Remembrance activities With the help of our donations, the Legion finances activities that shine a light on our past and commemorate our veterans.
Educational bursaries The Legion grants bursaries to children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of veterans who require financ ial assistance to be able to pursue a post-secondary education.

Weyburn Legion to mark 100th anniversary of warâ€™s end Bells in Weyburn will ring 100 times at sunset on Sunday, Nov. 11, to mark the signing of the Armistice that ended the First World War one century ago. The bell-ringing will be part of a nation-wide â€œBells of Peaceâ€? campaign to remember the heavy price paid by Canadians in the war effort, and it will occur in Weyburn at three of the churches. Dale Huff, the sergeant-at-arms for the Weyburn Legionâ€™s Colour Guard, will ring the bell at All Saints Anglican Church, which is the only one of the three with an actual bell to ring. Electronic bells will be run at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church and Knox Presbyterian Church, and they will all ring at 5:18 p.m., which is sunset in Weyburn on that day. The bell-ringing commemorates the ringing of church bells which erupted spontaneously to mark the end of the Great War on Nov. 11, 1918, â€œas an outpouring of relief that four years of war had come to an end,â€? said the BBC News. Canadaâ€™s population was around eight million at the time of the First World War, with around seven per cent of the total population in uniform at some point during the war, along with hundreds of thousands of Canadians working on the home front in support of the war. A total of 619,636 Canadians enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the war, and of those, 424,000 served overseas, with close to 66,000 Canadians killed during the war, and 172,000 wounded. In addition to these numbers, 1,305 residents from the Dominion of Newfoundland were killed during the war and several thousand were injured. Of the wounded who survived, 3,461 men and one woman had a limb amputated, and authorities identified over 9,000 Canadians who suffered from â€œshell shockâ€?. It is estimated that the war affected at least 425,000 families. The last known surviving veteran of the First World War in Canada, John Babcock, died at the age of 109 in February of 2010.

Comp Concert band opens service of Remembrance
Photo 6945 — Greg Nikkel
The Weyburn Comp’s Concert Band was directed by Tanya Cameron as they played O Canada and ‘Fallen Heroes’ for the service of Remembrance at the Weyburn Comprehensive School on Wednesday at the Cugnet Centre. The service included the reading of a letter from the First World War by Jerry Coubrough of Bengough, and a message from Legion padre Marjorie McLeod.
Commemorating the Centennial of the end of the First World War In the week leading up to Remembrance Day, a number of special events will be held in Regina to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. “The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to partner with the Royal United Services Institute of Regina in observing the 100th year since the end of the First World War,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Ken Cheveldayoff said. “Paying tribute to the men, women and families that gave so much to preserve our democracy and freedom is an honour that people across Saskatchewan share.” The annual Service of Remembrance will be held at the Legislative Building on November 7 at 10 a.m. This year’s ceremony will include the introduction of a permanent Wall of Honour to pay homage to 15 Saskatchewan soldiers who were awarded the Victoria Cross, the Commonwealth’s highest honour for valour during wartime.
Ten of those being honoured received the award for their bravery and service during the First World War. The Wall of Honour will be on temporary display in the Cumberland Gallery at the Legislative Building and will be permanently installed in Room 218 on the second floor of the building. On November 7 at 6:30 p.m. the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan will release the final video in its fivepart video series, From the Prairies to the Trenches, about Saskatchewan’s role in the First World War. Entitled “Amiens, Armistice and Aftermath,” the free public showing of the final episode will be held at the MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina. The Royal United Services Institute of Regina will host a Military Open House on November 8 from 1 to 4 p.m. for students and 6 to 9 p.m. for the general public in Banner Hall, Queensbury Convention Centre. This free public

Natural gas rates ‘temporarily’ reduced
Saskatchewan homeowners and businesses will see their natural gas rates reduced right away. However, the savings may be only temporary if the federal carbon tax is imposed on SaskEnergy customers. SaskEnergy’s commodity rate dropped from $3.65/ Gigajoule (GJ) to $2.95/ Gigajoule (GJ) as of Nov.
1, which is the lowest rate offered to customers since 1999. SaskEnergy has applied to the Saskatchewan Rate Review Panel for an even lower rate of $2.65/GJ, which would come into effect on April 1, 2019. The Government of Saskatchewan approved SaskEnergy’s request for an interim November 1 rate
to allow customers to take advantage of lower rates during the winter season. “One of the largest commodity rate reductions in SaskEnergy’s 30-year history could be short-lived, due to the Trudeau government’s plan to impose a fuel levy this spring on every home, farm, and business served by natural gas,” said
Bronwyn Eyre, Minister responsible for SaskEnergy. The total SaskEnergy rate reduction is designed to save customers about $80/ year, while the federal carbon tax will see a $1/GJ increase April 1, 2019. This would increase an average residential natural gas bill by approximately 12 per cent or $100-$120 annually.
By Sheaunid Wiggins, 306-722-3642 Fillmore — Frank and Pearl Fahlman attended an Honour Israel Night on Sept. 25 at the Victoria Inn and Convention Centre in Winnipeg, before taking a trip to Michigan to see their son Brad. The Jewish State’s 70th anniversary of independence was marked on May 14, 2018, and this event in Winnipeg was a celebration of that occasion, complete with birthday cakes. They also took in a three-day proph-
ecy conference on the New Testament’s Matthew 2425, which gave clear and concise correlations to the signs being seen in the world today. Understanding how and why the world is moving in today’s direction was discussed, along with how prophecy lays out the progression of destructive human choices. From this conference, Frank and Pearl travelled to see son Brad and Diyonn in Mt. Pleasant, Mich., and heard he had completed his collaborative research
and teaching contract with Tianjin University in China, requiring him to spend summer months there. Brad presented his parents with the 800-page third edition of his textbook, “Materials Chemistry” and the 700-page ninth edition of “Chemistry in Context” with the American Chemical Society. He’s currently working towards deadlines for the 10th edition as senior author and editor-in-chief. In spite of his involvement on these projects, plus
being a full-time chemistry professor at CMU, he was able to take some downtime and a day trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes along the northern shores of Lake Michigan. Frank and Pearl returned home on Oct. 15 after missing two snow blasts while they were away. Former Fillmore area resident Stanley Procyk of Regina passed away on Oct. 21 at the age of 84. Stan lived with his parents Steve and Anne Procyk about six miles north of Fillmore many years ago.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2018
Thank You Souris River Snowmobile Club would like to recognize its 2017/2018 Sponsors. Due to the late snowfall last season our sponsors received little recognition and as a club we felt it was necessary to recognize the businesses that supported our non-profit organization. Your generous donations enable our volunteer members to promote safe snowmobiling and effectively operate our 167 kilometer trail system which provides access to Weyburn, Griffin, Stoughton, Creelman and Corning.

Don Sealy, founder and longtime manager of the Therapeutic Animal Park, bought playground equipment along with his brother and sister in memory of his late father Frank, for use at the animal park.
Animal Park founder pays tribute to those who helped
The founder and longtime manager of the Therapeutic Animal Park wanted to pass on his thoughts and appreciation for the many people and groups who have helped him with the park over the last 35 years: “The story of the Therapeutic Animal Park started many years ago. It was the dream of a few employees of the old Souris Valley hospital, and they made it happen. I was invited to get on board to help, 35 years
ago, and I was hooked! Upon the death of my father, Frank Sealy, my brother Brian, sister Lesley Lawrence and I decided to purchase playground equipment in his memory. The engraved sign is compliments of York Jewellers, framed by Ian Fladeland. The signage at the park is compliments of Protouch Signs, and the metal carving is compliments of Mike Beaudoin. To thank everyone who has helped or contributed in any way through-
out these years would be a monumental task. The weekly “Hats Off” ad, compliments of the Weyburn Review, was my way of trying to publicly thank all the supporters. Please know that I am truly indebted and appreciative of each and everyone who helped out over the years. I wish the very best to the new board that have stepped into my shoes. I know they will carry on the dream of so long ago.” Sincerely, Don Sealy
