No confirmed cases of swine flu in SK
By Daniel Bushman
An outbreak has caused the
world to be on alert and by last
Wednesday, the World Health Organization raised its pandemic
alert to five, the second-highest
level. The scare has also affected
the travel industry, with some
flights being cancelled altogether.
A multi-strain swine flu was
detected in Mexico and has since
made its way to other parts of
the globe including Canada. Last

Keeping it locked
on the dial
By Daniel Bushman
Once the heavy pace of work nears an end and retirement hits,
many people find themselves with nothing to do. Not Watrous resident Don Wilson.
Wilson who is married to wife Audrey can be found tinkering
around his yard, in his garage or in the basement, which has been
transformed into a workshop.
“Once I retired, I had to have something to get up to.” When retirement came Wilson took off the boots once used to climb telephone
poles and grabbed some slightly different equipment.
While Wilson was still working, he had the chance to talk with
someone at the mine who had a locksmith job. He decided that could
be for him once he retired, although the notion of taking a course
through correspondence was not something he was fond of.
However, after retiring from telephones, “I contacted him and
he said it was a good course.” In 1983, Wilson began taking classes
through correspondence and soon became certified as a locksmith.
Since then, “I have had a few calls when someone is locked out of

As for how many locks Wilson has
keyed over the years, “A lot of locks. Yesterday (Apr. 21) I did three, a couple of
days before it was two.”
“Patience is the whole secret. You can
sit there anyplace from five minutes to
half an hour. You can’t hurry it, you just
have to get those pins lined up.”
Along with doing locks, Wilson has also
been busy cutting keys for the post office
boxes in town and Watrous Housing.
“I am going to continue to do it. Every
job is different. It keeps your brain working.”
And that is not all that goes on in Wilson’s basement to keep him busy. Don
used to fiddle around with another hobby.
Although it has been awhile since he last
used his radio equipment, Wilson is more
than happy to show it off.
His radio hobby all started when Wilson who was living in Rouleau - now
known as the home of Corner Gas - found
out someone had one and he would go
watch and listen. After that he got the
bug. “My first radio was a 19 set, an old
tank radio. It was a real good radio, built
Wilson got his first licence and joined
the Saskatchewan Amateur Radio
Leagues in 1952. “To get your first licence,
you had to send and receive 10 words a
minute.” The words were sent and received through international or continental code, a process also used by ships
sailing the oceans.
Wilson then had to write a theory
exam for that licence as well as the next
he applied for. The second licence was a
harder process where Wilson had to send
and receive 30 words a minute. That allowed him to have a phone licence so he
Wilson said, “You used to have to renew
it (licence) every year but now you don’t
have to unless you abuse your privilege.”
Once he had his licence, Wilson then
got his own call letters, VE5 IM. He said
VE stands for Canada and the five is for
Saskatchewan. Each province is assigned
a different number. The IM is the individual call letters, which can be “either two
or three letters.”
Wilson said the proper letters he had
were India Mexico - names distinguishable when annunciated over the airwaves
- but many of the people using amateur
radios had nicknames for their counterparts. “They used to call me itchy monkey,” he said with a chuckle.
Wilson is not the only person with an
amateur radio in the area. Radios in Lanigan, Strasbourg, Jansen and Watrous
resident Dwight Kornelsen’s are also involved. Although people passing by cannot pick up the signal, Wilson said those
with similar systems are able to talk and
listen to each other.
Wilson has had only two radios; his
latest came from a Heathkit. “It comes in

The 10 m band “goes half way around the world, but it

THE WATROUS MANITOU
Editorial and Opinion
Just Layzing Around
It’s not often I find myself
thanking the provincial crown
corporations for much. My
power bills keep going up, and
natural gas rates were highest
when winter was at its most
bitter and only went down now
that the furnace runs half as
much. But I do have to give
SaskTel a small plug.
My gratitude overspilled
its banks when, upon going
through my Monday morning
mail - email, that is - I came
across my weekly quarantine
In the way of a brief explanation to anyone who does not use
SaskTel email, as I understand
it, I have a number of filters
I can set for myself, limiting
access to my inbox from unwanted senders. Over and above that restriction, SaskTel monitors incoming emails and quarantines messages that may be spam or may contain a virus. I have the option of
viewing these emails without delivering them, thus providing me
the opportunity to determine if I actually want the message. I can
deliver that letter or delete it, or I can ignore the whole works and
these quarantined messages will automatically delete after 14 days.
So to get back to last Monday morning, I opened the email
from SaskTel to have a look at the weekly batch of garbage and
proceeded to examine the subject lines of - remember this is ONE
WEEK’S worth of quarantined messages - 179 emails.
Can you imagine if you had to deal with all that on a daily basis
yourself ? There’s no way to know what might have a virus, and
while some of the subject lines are dead giveaways, others would
certainly have me wondering if I should open it. After all, there’s
a world of difference between the email from [email protected]
customermail.usaa.com called “instructions from customer service”, and this sweet missive from [email protected]
com that says “you look like a fat hog, no wonder your wife sleeps
Yes, that is the muck that SaskTel saves me from wading
through. That, and other nearly irresistible treats such as:
• “burn the passion in her eyes” (wow, that would hurt the one
you love, wouldn’t it?);
• “we can help you grow your own beautiful hair” (as opposed to
you growing someone else’s, I guess);
• “irritation disperses your sleep, stop it now” (as if I’m not more
irritated after reading this junk than I was before - now, apparently,
I’ll never sleep);
• “90-30-90 - the ideal women figure is easy to achieve” (wow even life-size Barbie can’t brag about numbers like that!);
• and finally, “you have the right of choice! Do it now!”
Which is exactly what I did when I thanked SaskTel once more
for their useful service, and proceeded to dump the whole load of
garbage where it belonged: cybertrash.

Yo ho - a pirate’s life (is not) for me
It was hard to believe the
headlines reporting pirates holding an American
crew hostage. The cargo
ship, Maersk Alabama, was
raided by pirates off the
shores of Somalia. Apparently this is a long-standing
problem in this area.
One would have thought
the days of adventure on the
high seas to be long forgotten. Just mentioning piracy
conjures up images of oneeyed, one-legged men, gruff
voices and rugged features.
Names like Blackbeard
(Edward Teach), Black Bart,
Henry Morgan, Barbarossa
(which actually means Red
Beard and is the nickname
of Khair ad Din), Captain
Kidd and Grace O’Malley.
Piracy dates back to
13th century B.C. with the
Greeks and Romans. At that
time, pirates would kidnap
boys and girls and sell them
as slaves. Julius Caesar himself was a victim of kidnapping at the hands of pirates
who demanded a ransom
of 20 talents of gold, much
to the chagrin of Caesar
who thought he was worth
at least 50. The ransom was
paid and Julius was freed.
He then launched a fleet
of his own, tracked down,
captured, and executed the
King Henry III also took
a dim view of this practise.
Englishman William Maurice was convicted of piracy
in 1241 and was hung, drawn
however, units of pounds,
shillings and pence were
used for bookkeeping purposes (pirates kept books?!).
Seamen received part of the
plunder taken from ships
but this was at the discretion of the captain and their
share was much smaller.
Life as a pirate has been
depicted as glamourous
and extravagant, when in
reality, many were poor and
died young. Their diet consisted mainly of bananas
and limes. But they did have
a social conscience. A portion of any captured bounty
was placed into a fund that
was used to compensate
injuries sustained in battle.
A loss of a leg would receive
payment of 600 pieces of

and use technology to find the enemy and push them out
of a ring. They entertained the students with three remote controlled Sumo Bots, to give students a taste of
controlling a robot. A magnificent demonstration of a
Battle Bot or Kilobot took place where a club member
controlled a one pound robot with a spinning blade,
making it move around the cage and attacking things
like old cell phones, old robot parts, remote controllers
and an old game system. It made a noise resembling a
“toned down weed wacker”. Students were able to learn
about Battle Bots by looking at examples of ones used
in competitions. Some had titanium shells, saw blades
and other weapons, while many had the rotating “cutting edge” to cut and damage as well as flipping it into
Saturday, Apr. 25, about 20 of the Gr. 8s and Michelle
Swift from Gr. 9 travelled to Bruno for the annual Sagehill YBEX Awards ceremony. YBEX is an annual contest
for students in Gr. 6 to 12, where they create a business
plan that is possible and efficient for a small town com-
munity. The reception for the event started at 2 p.m. and
the awards started around 2:30. There was a break for
a snack of taco in a bag. Awards were presented to students from towns surrounding Bruno, such as Watrous,
Drake, Bruno, Imperial, St. Louis and other towns. The
Gr. 8s and Michelle Swift only had a chance to win in the
individual “dreamer” category. In the Gr. 8 individual
Dreamer category, Colby McGregor won third place and

While this Sunday is
a special day for moms,
many people do not know
how Mother’s Day came to
be. The day is recognized
in several countries across
the globe including Canada
and the United States, but
where and how did Mother’s Day come about?
According to mothersdaycentral.com and other
sites, the day has a few origins.
In the 1600s in Europe,
a decree broadened a celebration called Motherhood, which was a day
where early Christians
would honour the church
in which they were baptized - their mother church.
Once the decree was made,
the day was then expanded
to include real mothers,
earning the name Mothering Day. Mothers were
presented with cakes and
flowers, as well as visits
from their children who
lived far away.
Meanwhile, when the
first English settlers arrived in America they discontinued Mothering Day.
Back in Britain the holiday would continue but the
American Mother’s Day
would be invented centuries later by Julia Ward
Howe had written The
Battle Hymn of the Republic but 12 years after
had become so distraught
by the death and severity
of the Civil War that she
made a plea to mothers to
join and protest what she
saw as sons killing sons of
other mothers. With her
following, she called for
an international Mother’s
Day to celebrate peace and
motherhood. A proclamation was made in 1870 and
by 1873, women’s groups in
18 North American cities
observed the holiday.
However, after funding
became sparse, the celebrations died out and it
was not until a women by
the name of Anna Reeves
and her group began to
celebrate an adaptation of
the holiday that interest
was sparked once again.
After Reeves’ death in
1905, her daughter Anna
M. Jarvis campaigned for
an official Mother’s Day in
remembrance of her mother and in honour of peace.
In 1908, Jarvis petitioned
at her church to the superintendent and her request
was honoured. On May 10,
1908 the first official Mother’s Day celebration took
place and in 1908 a proposal was defeated to make it a
national holiday. However,
by 1909 there were 46 states
that held Mother’s Day services as well as some parts
of Canada and Mexico.
Then in 1912, West Virginia was the first state
to recognize Mother’s
Day officially and by 1914
President Woodrow Wilson signed it to a national
observance, stating the
second Sunday in May as
In Canada, the national
celebration was instituted
Flowers are often associated with Mother’s Day and

the Gr. 9 individual dreamer category. Levi Thoner won
one of the four YBEX Spirit Awards for planning a business that helps out the community. Many students from
WHS won door prizes.
Also Saturday, the Wildcat football team sold burgers
and pop at Mainline Motors. They raised almost $600.
Jarvis’ mother’s favourite flower was the white
carnation. The flower was
chosen to represent the
sweetness, purity and endurance of a mother’s love.
However, since that time
red carnations have been
used as the symbol of a living mother, while a white
one signifies a person’s
mother has passed on.

By Daniel Bushman
Action wrapped up in league play as athletes from
Horizon School Division geared up for badminton predistricts.
In senior southwest league standings, this year’s
championship went to Young. The squad finished with
a total record of 37-14 and a ratio of 0.725. Second spot
went to Nokomis, which notched a 7-4 record, but had a
0.636 ratio. In third was Lanigan at 17-10 and 0.630, followed by Watrous at 11-10 and a ratio of 0.524. Strasbourg
and Imperial rounded out the bottom pairing at 15-38 and
0.283, and 5-16 with a ratio of 0.238 respectively.
In junior action, Young was also tops in the league.
The team finished at 28-22 and a ratio of 0.560, just ahead
of Holdfast who was 28-24 and 0.538. Winston High School
placed third at 14-14 and a 0.500 ratio followed by Imperial at 29-39 and 0.426.
Moving to pre-districts on the senior side, teams ventured to Muenster and Strasbourg Apr. 21 and 22 where
they competed to represent their schools at districts.
In boys singles, Taylor Harding from Watrous placed
fourth in his category. In girls singles, Young’s Jesse Dieno took fourth.
Mixed doubles had Brandon Kirk and Chantel Knuter of Young in second overall, while in girls doubles
the team of Kelsey Teneyke and Meagan Reynolds of
Watrous finished in third.
With the second-place finish, Kirk and Knuter advanced to districts along with Teneyke and Reynolds in
St. Brieux Apr. 25.
Unfortunately the mixed doubles team was unable to
make it to the top two and the girls doubles team placed
third, resulting in neither team moving on to regionals.
Meanwhile, junior pre-districts were held in Watrous
Apr. 28 and Nokomis Apr. 29. Athletes from Drake, Holdfast, Imperial, Nokomis, Strasbourg, Young, and Watrous
made their way to the Winston High School gym for boys
singles, girls singles and mixed doubles.
In boys singles, Riley Hendry of Watrous took first,
Spencer Shouse of Young placed second, Logan Regier
of Imperial was third, and Ryan Turnbull from Strasbourg took fourth.
Girls singles had Holdfast’s Amanda Fahlman in first,
Morgan Lougheed from Young in second, Michelle Joa of
Imperial third and Drake’s Maryna Dakhne in fourth.
For mixed doubles, Tyneal Frohlick and Reid Chypiska and Jessica Luzny and Tyler Fuchs all of Holdfast
placed first and second, Reanne Berry and Curtis Frey
from Young got third and Kassidy Sweet and Brandin
McTavish from Strasbourg were fourth.
The top two winners from each category advanced to
districts, which took place this past Saturday.
The ladies annual golf meeting was held Wednesday,
Apr. 22 with a good attendance.

As time ticked off the

their goalie and with 47

brother Scott, who had a
four-point night, found the
puck and shovelled it into
the net to tie the game and
force it into overtime.
In the extra frame, the

At the world hockey championships, Canada got off
to a good start, although there was not much competition in their first grouping. Their second opponent was
the ultimate underdog. Hungary is competing at the top
level of the world championship for the first time in 70
years. Hungary has never produced an NHL player, although goalie Levente Szuper and forward Janos Vas
were both drafted.
For the first time ever, Canada had three 19-year-olds
(Steven Stamkos, Luke Schenn and Drew Doughty) on
their roster, as well as another NHL rookie, James Neale.
Dwayne Roloson stopped 23 shots for the first win and
became the oldest player ever to represent Canada in the
After John Tortorella was suspended for game six
of the Washington-New York series, he was replaced
by assistant coach Jim Schoenfeld. The irony is that
Schoenfeld is the only other NHL coach to serve a
suspension during the playoffs. I loved Schoenfeld’s
line when he was asked about that particular irony.
With a smug grin, he answered, “I found it more
ironic that people thought I was holding John back
when I was really trying to help him over the glass!”
Randy Sportak says it is now Darryl Sutter’s move.
“One thing is evident on the heels of the Calgary Flames’
latest first-round defeat: It’s time to make changes. With
the coaching staff. With the personnel. With the identity.” Those close to the Flames will point to the injuries,

Sportak feels Dion Phaneuf is among the problems
with the team. “This team has created ‘the monster’ by
allowing him to freelance with too little attention to detail in the defensive zone. It’s better to rein in a thoroughbred than kick a donkey, but in the fourth season of his
NHL career, Phaneuf has to know when too much is a

Province finds success
in the form of growth
By Daniel Bushman
While the nation’s economy found itself in a downward spiral, Saskatchewan
has risen to the top of the barrel.
According to Statistics Canada, Saskatchewan had the fastest growing economy of all Canadian provinces in 2008.
As reported, the province grew by 4.4
per cent, which was tops in the country
and ahead of the national average of 0.5
per cent. In the west the news was not as
good as Alberta found themselves with a
decrease of 0.2 and British Columbia went
down by 0.3 per cent. However, in Manitoba the province saw an increase of 2.4
Enterprise and Innovation Minister
Lyle Stewart said, “Our economy in 2008
outpaced other provinces with strong
activity in the resource sector and in
agriculture. We have made considerable
investment in infrastructure and major
personal tax cuts that will definitely set
Saskatchewan apart from other provinces
in the coming year.”
Only five provinces in Canada found
themselves with economic growth in 2008.
Meanwhile, according to the release,
most major forecasters predict the province will be the only one in the nation to
post economic growth in 2009.
Stewart said, “Saskatchewan is not immune to the economic challenges faced
globally, but we are in a great position to
fend off the major declines experienced
in much of Canada and stay on track over
the coming year.”

friends. Her friend worries
about almost everything,
her children and grandchildren. She believed
that all this worry was a
lack of faith. Her response
was, “You can’t change

- all you can do is pray for
them.” Then she added, “I
often ask in different situations, what would Jesus

By Daniel Bushman/TWM
After waiting patiently during the spring thaw, anglers throughout the province can now head to the lake and cast their lines, provided they have a licence.
This year, Saskatchewan seniors aged 65 years or older can continue to fish for
free, and do not need to obtain an angling licence.
Seniors are only required to have proof of residency and age like a provincial
driver’s licence, which must be displayed to conservation officers or RCMP officers upon request.

The Young School of
Dance hosted its annual recital last Sunday afternoon.
The dance school has been
operating for 30 years so
this year’s theme was appropriately named “Celebrate – 30 Years”. Under the
tutelage of Nikki Pavelich,
the 21 dancers showcased
their talent by performing
jazz, ballet, hip hop, lyrical, pointe, tap and musical
theatre. Eric Adair was
emcee for the afternoon
show with Tyler Cline running lights and sound. During intermission the dance
executive consisting of
Carrie Schaan, Juliet Bjorgan, JoAnn Borsa, Sherry
Shouse, Cindy Frey and
Rikee Rowan drew names
for door prizes and numerous raffle tickets gratefully
donated by many sponsors
in and around Young. The
afternoon ended in a bang!
with colourful confetti falling on the stage followed by
speeches and gerbera daisies handed out to the dancers and a special gift for
the instructor. To wrap up
the afternoon, goodies and
refreshments were served
to all who attended. The
dancers had a successful
competition year as well,
collecting medals in various categories at the Lanigan and Watrous dance
festivals. The executive is
happy to announce Nikki
will be back again next
year and looks forward to
another fun and successful

THE WATROUS MANITOU
Faye Marcoux • 944-2026
The RM of Viscount held its 29th annual spring ratepayers meeting the evening of Apr. 17. About 100 people
attended the event, which started with a wonderful meal
prepared by the Viscount Community Kitchen. Reeve
Russ Deneiko chaired the meeting and special guests
were Jerry Sopatyk, Reeve of the RM of Colonsay, Garth
Burns, vice president of APAS, Nancy Gray, agrologist
and Serge Pelletier, manager of environment and community for BHP Billiton. Fire chief Brian Desmarais addressed the meeting encouraging everyone to be fire safe.
He drew names for a couple of smoke detectors. Mayor
of Viscount Morris Kirzinger gave details of the 100th
anniversary celebration of the RM and village to be held
Aug. 8. Guest speakers Garth Burns, Serge Pelletier and
Nancy Gray delivered some interesting and thought provoking presentations on issues of concern to the ratepayers, and everyone left a little more informed.
There were 23 out for breakfast at the seniors Apr. 25.
With the ground white at sunrise, maybe people were
wary of the slippery roads? Mary Bird won the 50/50.

News from Viscount Central School
Thursday, Apr. 23, the VCS drama club presented
its rendition of Holka Polka. Cindy Frey and Loretta
Polischuk directed this fairytale mystery that had all
sorts of strange, scary and familiar characters. The
characters kept the audience laughing throughout the
play. The costumes, hair and makeup were excellent and
helped the students “get into character”. The evening
was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended.
Mr. Pratte and Mrs. Udell assisted with the lights and
sound and Mrs. Credgeur and Mrs. Yaworski did hair
and makeup. Janelle Kirzinger and Aleicia Yaworski
were the welcoming committee. Everyone’s help was
greatly appreciated! We hope you enjoyed our performance.
The actors were: Jasmine Phillips, Tony Moulton,
Selena Kirzinger, Diana Moen, Kelsie Isaacson, Teresa

Mann, Tyneal Welter, Erica Moen, Katherine Brown,
Colby McClelland, Brady Tetzlaff, Kala Grieve, Jake
Edwards, Christine Koob and Jazmin Evers. James
Friesen, Riley Isaacson and Thomas Vossen were the
sound and light crew and Jesse Stadnyk was the stagehand.
Mrs. Frey and Mrs. Polischuk enjoyed working with
the students who put in so much time and effort into the
production. We really are lucky to have such dedicated
staff, students and community members!
Viscount Central School will hold its annual awards
day on Thursday, May 21.
The senior SRC appreciates the students who sold
Easter chocolates during March and April. The top seller was Jared Dopko who sold three cases of chocolates.
Well done Jared! The SRC would like to acknowledge the
community for purchasing the chocolate bars as well as
the continued support from Plunkett, Meacham and Viscount communities.
The senior SRC is grateful for the Adult Drama Club’s
donation for this year’s yearbook. The SRC appreciates
the contribution of the community to all school activities.
Spring has come in like a lion for the elementary students! The junior SRC has worked hard to plan activities
and events this month. We started April a little foolishly
by having an April Fool’s Fun Day! Students wore their
clothes backwards, inside out and even had their layers on the wrong way! Intramural teams had “foolish”
relays in the gym to start the day. Participants were rewarded with a treat, too. For Easter, the junior SRC held
an Easter egg hunt and a colouring contest. What fun
we had looking in the classrooms for the eggs filled with
candies. Winners for the colouring contest were chosen
for each classroom. All participants received chocolate
treats and Kaul Goodsman, Julia Morelli, Sterling Fox,
and Brookelynn Tetzlaff won the chocolate Easter bunnies. The junior SRC also helped pay for the Gr. 3/4 field
trip to Saskatoon in April. We are looking forward to our
track and field fun day in May, as well as our yearend
trips. We plan on having another spirit day soon! Watch
The junior SRC advisors appreciate the time our SRC
takes to plan and prepare for our elementary activities.

May 10 is Mother’s Day. My mother passed away more
than 15 years ago at the age of 93, but my memory of her
is still very vivid. She had such an eventful life, growing
up on a prosperous farm estate not far from the Black Sea
in the Ukraine, living through the horrors of the revolution and the years of lawlessness, and fleeing at the age
of 19 in the middle of the night with her family from
their home when the rag-tag bandit armies were still
roaming much of the country before the communists established order in the country. Then came the years of
property confiscation under the collectivization policies
of Stalin, and banishment to the ‘gulag’ of so many of
those who had been considered wealthy kulaks hit many
of her male relatives, leaving mothers and children in
limbo. They had to work on the collective farms but with
no rights and often with next to no food reduced many
of them to near or actual starvation. Then in 1924 after
strong negotiating and petitioning by Mennonite organizations in North America and Holland, the communists
agreed to allow some of the unwanted kulaks and their
families to leave Russia if all costs would be assumed by
them. Well, it is too long a story to write here but my parents were among the lucky ones to get a visa and with
the financial loans of the Canadian Pacific Railway they
came to Canada in 1925.
In spite of all the horrors of seeing so much death,
starvation etc., my mother had a tendency to tell only the
stories of her early years, of the nice home, the beautiful
orchards, the gay social life prior to the revolution and
lawlessness. Her first years in Canada were the ‘dirty
Thirties’, drought and grasshopper plagues, and years
of low pay of country teachers after the 1929 crash, making her memories of her youth even more poignant.
When I hear people complaining of all ‘those foreigners’ Canada is allowing into our country I feel strongly
that not so many years ago my family, too, were foreigners and we should be glad to be able to give others a home
in our vast lands. We want them to feel equality under
their feet, and we should be working to share our land
with them and give them a sense of unity, even though
we have our differences.

The Operations and Engineering Division of SaskWater will be treating the
Saskatoon Southeast Water Supply System (S.S.E.W.S.) canal between the
Blackstrap and Zelma Reservoirs to control weeds and algae during the 2009
irrigation season. Treatment dates are May 12, May 26, June 9, June 23, July 7,
July 21, August 5, and August 18, 2009.
The canal between the Zelma and Dellwood Reservoirs will be treated for the same
reasons on May 13, May 27, June 10, June 24, July 8, July 22, August 6 and
August 19, 2009.
The chemical Magnacide “H” with its active ingredient “Acrolein”, will be noticeable
in the water by its offensive odour.
The canal flow rate may be lowered during treatment so that less chemical will be
required. The chemical will remain active in the canal for approximately 24 hours
after each treatment, and will diminish to non-detectable levels prior to treated
water entering the reservoirs. Area residents are warned that chemically treated
water is not to be used for drinking during this 24-hour period. Treated water may
also be harmful to the skin, causing irritation to exposed areas.
Dosages will be maintained at a level where the water can safely be used for
irrigation with no damage to field crops.
People are reminded that swimming in the canal at any time is
STRICTLY PROHIBITED; swimming in treated water may cause skin irritation.
Magnacide “H” can kill fish by suffocation, but it does not accumulate in fish flesh.
Fishing in the canal is not permitted.
This water treatment ensures irrigation intakes are free from clogging and adequate
flows are maintained in this multi-use system.
Since no other feasible alternative exists to control the growth of weeds in canals,
they are best controlled with this short-lived, widely-used, registered chemical.

ISHERWOOD, Lila Bernice
Bernice Isherwood died peacefully in her home Saturday, January 31, 2009.
Funeral service was held Tuesday, February 3 at
Imperial Community Hall. Rev. Richard Meredith officiated. Interment was in Venn Cemetery.
Pallbearers were her grandsons. Honourary pallbearers were her granddaughters. Bonnie Thomas gave
the eulogy. Register attendants were Lynn and Gerald
Merryfield. Ushers were Gail Burkitt and Barb Potts.
Organist was Helen Abrey accompanied by the Imperial
Bernice was born August 30, 1927, the only child of
William and Erma (Fielding) Abrey. She was raised on
their farm just north of Simpson. Bernice went to school
in Simpson, then took nursing at the Grey Nun’s in Regina and became a registered
nurse. Bernice worked for a few years then married George Flostrand on March 26,
1952. They lived southeast of Venn on the Flostrand farm. Bernice quit nursing to
raise her family but her skills came in handy because her oldest daughter Judy had
muscular dystrophy and was in a wheelchair and George had tuberculosis. Bernice
and George exchanged services so that Judy could attend Camp Easter Seal in Watrous. It was hard raising a child that was handicap back then because many things
and places were not handicap friendly. Bernice lost her dad and daughter in 1967. In
1969, with George’s health failing, Bernice took a refresher course in nursing and went
back to work. After George passed away in December 1973, Bernice got a full time
nursing position in Imperial and moved her family there July 1974. The next few years
were busy with work and raising her family alone. In February 1981 Bernice married
Leroy Isherwood. She retired from nursing the next year. Bernice and Leroy loved
to travel to the U.S. during the winter and in the summer they had a place at Emma
Lake where they went fishing and spent time with their children and grandchildren.
In January 1985 Bernice lost her mother to cancer. In April 1999 Leroy passed away
suddenly and in January 2004 her son Dennis passed away from cancer. In July 2008
Bernice saw her last child get married, she was so happy to have almost all her family there. Bernice’s nursing skills always helped her throughout her lifetime. She was
always there for her family. Bernice had many hobbies that she did over the years and
she taught her children many of them. Bernice never missed watching Telemiracle.
She donated every year and had all the teddies hanging in her livingroom.
Bernice was predeceased by her parents Bill and Erma Abrey; two husbands
George Flostrand and Leroy Isherwood; daughter Judy; son Dennis; step grandson
Troy Flostrand; son-in-law James Thomas and stepson Gary Isherwood.
Bernice is survived by her children: Karen (Bill) Burnett, their children Howard
(Joleen)/Danyka, Zander; Neil (Chauna)/Kamryn; Angie (Nathan) Burnett; Bonnie
Thomas, her children Chuck (Andrea)/William, Kendra, Trista; Robert (Chelsea)/
Ari; Neysa; George Thomas; Murray (Shirley) Flostrand, her children Rosemarie,
James, Jessica, Leighann Klenk; Janet (Kelvin) Klenk, their children Kyle, Krystal
(Kale) Klenk; Dennis’ children Bill (Charmaine)/Quinton, Conor, Dalton; Shatner
(Tasha)/Shayna Flostrand; Theela/Samantha, Cody Vogelesang; great grandchild
Eric Flostrand; daughter-in-law Paula Flostrand and numerous nieces, nephews and
cousins. Bernice is also survived by her stepchildren: Sharon Carlson, her family Lisa
(Oscar) Quezadaf (Zachery and Matthew) and Jill (Eric) Hosafros (Isabell and Max);
Jean Isherwood, her family Todd (Jean) Isherwood (Cody and Cooper) and Tara (Doug)
Hayes and Terry (John) Bax and their daughter Stephanie.
Memorial donations to Telemiracle (we wonder how different mom and dad’s life
would have been if this foundation was there for them) and Camp Easter Seal (we saw
first hand how important this camp was to someone handicapped).

CARDS OF THANKS
CARDS OF THANKS
A person doesn’t realize how wonderful it is to live in a small
community until you have a death in the family. Our mother
passed away suddenly in her home on Jan. 31, 2009. The
support from the communities has been truly wonderful.
We would like to send our heartfelt thank you to all for the
food, cards and flowers that were brought to us and also
the generous memorial donations for Camp Easter Seal and
Telemiracle. These two foundations were very dear to mom’s
heart. A special thank you to the ambulance attendants who
came to the house. Thanks to Rev. Richard Meredith for all
his support and comforting words. To the choir and organist,
also the ladies who prepared the lunch, you did a wonderful
job. Fotheringham-McDougall Funeral Service for handling
the funeral arrangements, you will always be remembered
for helping us through a difficult time. Words cannot describe
what a truly strong and courageous woman mom was. We
were blessed to have her in our lives as long as we did. It is
so nice to have such caring people around us at this difficult
time in our lives.
- The families of (Lila) Bernice Isherwood; Karen (Bill) Burnett, Bonnie Thomas, Murray (Shirley) Flostrand, Janet (Kelvin) Klenk and families
The Young Hotel would like
to thank the village of Young
and surrounding communities for celebrating our grand
opening with us. The 50/50
draw generated $174, which
has been donated to the accessible lift fund for the hall
in Young. Your support made
our night a huge success.
We hope to see you again!
- Barney Moore and Gisele
We would like to thank the
fire department for responding to the fire in our yard last
weekend. Also, thank you to
the Hedlins for being there
so quickly. We are sure you
all had better things to be doing with your day! Thankfully,
nothing of value was lost.
- Steve and Monica
BORSHEIM - In loving memory
of Gwen on Mother’s Day:
If I had all the world to give,
I’d give it, yes, and more,
To hear her voice and see her
And greet her at my door.
But all I can do, dear mother,
Is go and tend your grave,
And leave behind tokens of love
To be best mother God ever
I like to think, when life is done,
Wherever heaven may be,
That she’ll be standing at the door up there to welcome me.
- Love the family.
ELLAMS - Jim, Mar. 18 and Lily, Apr. 30. To our dear
Don’t grieve for us, for now we’re free
We’re following the path God laid for us,
We took His hand when we heard Him call;
We turned our backs and left it all.
We could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
We found that peace at the close of day.
If our parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy:
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Oh yes, these things we too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
We wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
Our life’s been full, we savoured much.
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps our time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with us
God wanted us now, He set us free!
- Always missed, your families.
GULLACHER - With fond and loving memories of our dear
grandson Klay, June 9, 1990 - May 5, 1995:
Deep in our hearts your memory is kept
To love, to cherish, and never forget.
Life goes on and years go by.
But precious memories never die.
- Always loved and remembered by Grandpa and Grandma
GULLACHER - In loving
memory of Klay Josia Robert
Roy, June 9, 1990 - May 5,
We little knew that morning
that God was going to call
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls us one by one, the Chain will link again.
This year Klay would have become uncle to four beautiful children and a better uncle, they could not have had,
except the two they already have.
- With love and fondest memories of 4 1/2 good years, dad
and mom, Kristy and Duane and family, Kathy and Jed and
family, Kandi and Darren and family, Korrie and Jeff and
family, Kelly and Sara (and baby to be) and Kent.
MILLMAN - Robert - Feb. 21, 1929 - May 10, 2007:
If we could have one lifetime wish; one dream that could
We’d ask with all our hearts, for yesterday and you.
- Forever missed by Evelyn and family.
MILLMAN - Robert, May 10, 2007:
Silent memories keep you near as time unfolds another
No longer in our lives to share but in our hearts, you’re
- Missing you every day, your family, the Doerksen and Millman families.
REDSTONE - In loving memory of my husband Bert, who
passed away May 3, 2004:
A heart of gold stopped beating
Hardworking hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the very best.
- Sadly missed and always loved by Betsy and family.

The last time the travel industry experienced
something to this scale,
according to Woiden, was
when SARS hit. That affected inbound travel to
the country; now it is the
other way around.
The swine flu that has
been making its presence
known is a respiratory disease of pigs that, in rare
cases, affects humans. Human infection can occur
when people are in close
proximity to pigs, but it
is rarely transmitted between humans. Swine flu
is not transmitted through
in the same manner as
other strains of influenza,
which is person to person
through the air. To take
the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health is encouraging people to wash their
hands frequently, cough
and sneeze into the elbow
rather than hand, and stay
home if sick.
Symptoms of the swine
flu in people are expected
to be somewhat similar to
those of regular human
influenza infection and include fever, lethargy, lack
of appetite and coughing.
The ministry of health
said those who have visited Mexico and have flulike symptoms should not
be alarmed as there are
many seasonal influenza
viruses circulating. However, if you see your health
care provider be sure to
tell them you have recently
A health line is also set
up for those with questions
or concerns: 1-800-877-0002.
Cases of the swine flu
are not common in Canada, but over the past few
years there has been about
one case per year of the
North American strain of
human swine flu in Canada.
