T
he Rivers Edge Recreation Park committee is elated
to announce the completion of the frst phase of the
projectthe walking trail and bike park.
A grand opening, ribbon cutting event will be held
this Saturday at noon and the community is encouraged
to stop in and help celebrate with some fun, prizes, hot
dogs and drinks.
Te Rivers Edge Recreation Park Project is a local
group who has been striving to develop a recreational
area west of Tanners Crossing School, north of the Little
Saskatchewan River. Te group has plans to develop the
area in four phases over the course of fve-to-seven years.
Since the fall of 2013, the park committee and vol-
unteers have been working to gather funds through grant
proposals, fundraising events, and sponsorships.
After receiving a $25,000 grant from Manitoba Com-
munity Places earlier this year, the group has raised over
$85,000, which has enabled them to complete phase one
of the project.
Te Rivers Edge walking trail connects to Minnedo-
sas existing trail system, is six-feet-wide and in the future
may serve to host community events, such as the Terry
Fox Run or possibly a cross country ski trail in the winter
months.
Te construction of the trail was tendered to Salers
Backhoe and Trucking, who would like to note for trail-
goers to be gentle with the trail as the surrounding earth
will need some time to settle.
In the near future, the committee will also be work-
ing to populate the trail with benches and trash cans.
With the f rst phase of the project complete, the com-
mittee has now moved their sights to fundraising eforts
for the projects second phasea dog park. A fall fund-
raiser is currently being planned for November.
Te committee will have sponsorship opportunities
available in the near future and are open to any fundrais-
ing ideas community members may have.
Rivers Edge Completes
Phase One of Park
Taking a drive along 6th Avenue N.W., some may notice a sizable expansion happening at Morris
Industries. Crews have been busy on-site this week erecting the steel frame work of the 8,000-square
foot expansion. Tis addition will allow added space to house the companys new paint line.
Construction began earlier this month and is slated to be complete by November.
Expanding Minnedosas Industrial Park was one of the top priorities identifed at last weeks
Tink Tank Session hosted by the Minnedosa and Area Community Development Corporation.

innedosa Minor Baseball has been chosen as
one of six Manitoba recipients to receive fund-
ing through the Farm Credit Canada (FCC) AgriSpirit
Fund. Of the total $75,000 commitment to Manitoba,
Minnedosa will receive a grant of $15,000 to assist with
removing and replacing the existing Mosquito/Pee Wee
backstop and fence located in the southwest corner of
the MREC site.
Tis announcement comes hot on the heels of the
Minor Baseballs recent grand opening of Century Field,
which was made possible due to a generous $100,000
grant from Richardson Pioneer.
Te FCC AgriSpirit Fund was established to en-
hance rural communities across the country. Organiza-
tions raising money for a capital project in a community
with a population less than 150,000 people are eligible
to apply. Approved grant donations between $5,000 and
$25,000 are a welcome supplement to a groups fund-
raising eforts.

T
he Minnedosa Performing Arts Committee will
be kicking of its Expressions concert series next
week, starting of with a sister duo who ofers up tra-
ditional Irish music with impeccable harmonies.
Te Performing Arts Committee is a nonproft,
volunteer run organization that has been actively
presenting the community with a fall/winter concert
series since 1990.
Opening the 2014-2015 series will be the musi-
cal performance of Ennis at the Minnedosa United
Church.
Maureen and Karen Ennis are sisters who have
been singing together their entire lives. Rooted in
Celtic traditional Newfoundland infuences, the sister
duo has travelled the world performing and earned
some recognition along the way.
Music has always been such a big part of our
lives, said Maureen.As long as were able to main-
tain the passion that we have for playing live, well
continue to produce the kind of music that people ex-
pect from us at our shows.
Fiercely proud of their Newfoundland roots, the
sisters have channelled their Celtic pride to produce
six CDs that have enabled them to take their music
on tour throughout Canada, the U.S., the Middle East,
and Europe.
Ennis is currently on a thirteen-stop concert tour
that began in Kenora on September 25th and will
wrap-up on October 9th in Souris.
Tey have shared the stage with the Nitty Gritty
Dirt Band, the Chieftains, Mary Black and Jann Arden.
Te duo has also earned an impressive collection
of awards including, a Juno Award, a SOCAN award,
multiple ECMA, as well as a gold record and two com-
pilation gold records.
Teir most recent album, Te Fortunate Ones ,
was released in July of 2012 and includes songs by
Ron Hynes and Bob Dylan as well as a song co-written
by actor Russell Crowe and Alan Doyle of Great Big
Sea.
Next up in the series will be David James and Big
River with a Johnny Cash tribute in November.

P
eter McPherson, a
James McGill Profes-
sorof Neurology and Neu-
rosurgery, and Anatomy
and Cell Biology at the
Montreal Neurological In-
stitute, McGill University,
has beennamed a Fellow
of the Royal Society of
Canada (RSC). He is one
offour new RSC Fellows
from McGill University.
Dr. McPherson is being
recognized for his funda-
mental discoveries un-
derlying the cellular and
molecular basis of neu-
rodegenerative diseases,
opening a new research
f eld, the molecular ma-
chineries for membrane
traf cking. Te induction
ceremony will take place
in November at the Fair-
mont Le Chteau Fronte-
nac in Quebec City.
Peter, the youngest
son of June and Barrie
McPherson, was born and
raised in Minnedosa. He
graduated from Minnedo-
sa Collegiate in 1982 and
went on to receive both
his B.Sc. Honours (1986)
and M.Sc. (1988) degrees
from the University of
Manitoba.
He received his Ph.D.
in Neuroscience from the
University of Iowa in 1992
working with Dr. Kevin
Campbell at the Howard
Hughes Medical Institute.
He went on to conduct
post-doctoral training at
Yale University School of
Medicine with Dr. Pietro
de Camilli, also of the
Howard Hughes Medical
Institute. Dr. McPherson
joined the faculty at the
MNI in 1995 as a Fellow
of the prestigious Alfred P.
Sloan Foundation.
At each stage of his
career, Dr. McPherson
has made fundamen-
tal discoveries related to
neuronal function. His
doctoral research solved
a long-standing question
regarding one of the major
mechanisms of cafeine
action in the nervous sys-
tem. His post-doctoral
studies led to two land-
mark papers in Nature
that laid the framework
for studying the molecu-
lar mechanisms involved
in controlling the cellular
process of endocytosis,
the means by which pro-
teins, lipids and other im-
portant molecules enter
the cell.
Work in his own labo-
ratory has transformed
the f eld of membrane
traf cking through the
identif cation and char-
acterization of more than
20 novel proteins critical
for the regulation of this
process. Most recently,
proteins identifed in Dr.
McPhersons laboratory
have been linked to neu-
rological diseases, includ-
ing Huntington Disease,
Parkinson Disease, Amy-
otrophic Lateral Sclero-
sis (ALS), and autosomal
recessive spastic ataxia
of CharlevoixSaguenay
(ARSACS). Defects in
membrane traf cking
pathways are emerging a
central theme of neuro-
degenerative diseases and
Dr. McPherson is a leader
in this new feld.
Established in 1882,
the RSC is the senior
national body of distin-
guished Canadian schol-
ars, artists and scientists.
Te RSC consists of nearly
2,000 Fellows selected by
their peers for outstand-
ing contributions to the
natural and social sci-
ences, arts and humani-
ties. As Canadas national
academy, the RSC not
only recognizes academic
excellence, but it also ad-
vises governments and
organizations, and pro-
motes Canadian culture.

he driver of a passen-
ger vehicle was thank-
ing his lucky stars after a
brief collision with a semi
truck on Tuesday morning.
Minnedosas volun-
teer frefghters, along with
local EMS and RCMP, were
called out just before 9
a.m. on Tuesday, Septem-
ber 23rd.
A small car had been
travelling eastbound along
Highway #16 near Bass-
wood when it crossed over
the centre line, making a
connection with the rear
wheels of a westbound
semi trailer.
Te collision occurred
slightly west of the PR #270
turnof. Te driver of the
passenger car sustained
minor injuries, while the
semi driver was unharmed
but did incur damage to
his rig.
Te driver of the pas-
senger car was very lucky.
It is not too often that we
see someone collide with a
semi and remain relatively
unharmed, commented

innedosa and Area
Community Devel-
opment Corporation host-
ed a Tink Tank Session
to assist the community
in moving forward on the
evening of Wednesday,
September 17th.
In addition to CDC
staf and presenters from
Manitoba Agriculture
Food and Rural Devel-
opment, sixteen people
attended including fve
municipal of cials and
eleven business people.
Government repre-
sentatives presented a Re-
gional Economic Analysis
Process (REAP) report
which included statistics
and data compiled for the
Town of Minnedosa and
R.M.s of Minto and Odan-
ah. Te REAP report indi-
cates that the areas popu-
lation increased 6.8% (253
people) in 2013 from 1991.
Overall, this areas popu-
lation is an older and ag-
ing group of residents. Te
largest group of people
living in the area are those
75 years of age and older.
Te second largest age
group are between 50 and
54 years of age.
In terms of educa-
tion, statistics found that
our region has a higher
percentage of people with
certif cates or diplomas
in apprenticeship and
trades. Tis indicates that
our region should be more
attractive to businesses
seeking workers with
trades assets.
An analysis of in-
dustry and jobs in the
Minnedosa area found
that there were 1,608 jobs
in the Minnedosa region
in 2013. Tis is a decrease
of 258 jobs from 2006. Al-
most 60% of the regions
1,608 jobs fall within five
industry sectors includ-
ing healthcare, retail, ag-
riculture, education and
other services.
The information pre-
sented was compiled as
a resource tool to deter-
mine what focus areas
could be beneficial when
trying to attract new
business opportunities
or residents to the com-
munity. A brainstorming
session was held to iden-
tify Minnedosas assets
and there were many of
them. An exercise was
then held in which par-
ticipants were asked to
think ahead ten years and
indicate what they hope
Minnedosa will look like
in 2024. With those fu-
ture visions listed, the
next step was to deter-
mine which ideas were
most critical to follow up
on, also, how to develop
a plan to move forward
to reach these goals for
the future. From the par-
ticipants in attendance,
it was determined that
some of the most critical
goals for The Town and
CDC to work toward were
building upon assets we
already have, industrial/
job growth, improving
health services, increas-
ing our recreation infra-
structure, housing and in-
creased efforts to tell our
story and better promote
the Minnedosa area.
Anyone who was un-
able to attend the Think
Tank Session but would
like to share their opin-
ions, ideas or suggestions
are welcome to contact

opment Officer, Martijn

Elections here and there
Troughout this weeks edition you will see nu-
merous Notice of Election ads for various municipal
councils and school boards. An election is always wel-
coming as it provides residents an opportunity to se-
lect who they feel has their communitys best interests
in mind. I have always been a frm believer that any-
one who sits back and gripes about what our elected
of cials are doing had better throw his or her name
into the candidates circle when the next election is
called. It is good to see a few new names on the can-
didates lists for the various municipalities and school
boards throughout our province. Its also important
that everyone who can vote gets out and exercises that
right on Election Day. If you dont vote, you have no
right to complain when your elected of cials make a
decision you dont agree with. Watch Te Tribune for
interviews with our Town Council candidates within
the next few weeks. Te Chamber of Commerce is
also planning a Candidates Forum evening to provide
voters an opportunity to ask questions of local candi-
dates.
NOT TRUE...
We learned this week that there is a rumour circu-
lating that Minnedosa Regional Archives is no longer
accepting donations of archival material. Tat state-
ment is completely false. Te Archives is continuing
operations as usual and welcomes donations of items
deemed valuable for archival purposes.
Month Ten
In only a few short days October will be upon us
which means we are getting down to the fnal months
of another year. Recently while in our local pharmacy
I noticed that in addition to Tanksgiving and Hallow-
een related items, the latest in Christmas gift ideas are
already on the shelves here in Minnedosa! While I al-
ways look forward to Christmas, Im not ready to start
thinking about it just yet. Hopefully we will be able to
enjoy some great autumn weather before the winter
winds blow in, I know our farmers would sure appre-
ciate it!
Dear Editor,
O
n entering our local Post Of ce this morning (Mon-
day), I was shocked to see the gross littering of mail
of all kinds: ads, unopened newspapers, catalogues still
in their wrappers, brochures and other material: this lit-
tering no doubt deposited by post of ce box holders. All
of which was in complete disarray on several counters.
I am concerned that so many people have so little con-
science or consideration for others and for the fne build-
ing itself, which we should be proud of.
I understand what these people who litter are say-
ing. Tey are saying to the Post Master that they did not
ask for this or that item and they do not want it and so
they deliberately litter. We all have contracted with the
post of ce to have mail delivered to our individual boxes
and this is what the Post Of ce does. It is up to each of
us to accept all mail in the boxes, and presumably take
it home, where items not wanted can then be recycled
or otherwise disposed of. Tere would be loud hollering
if the Post Of ce, instead of fulflling its duty, decided
indiscriminately who should receive what. Would you
want to not receive a parcel or important letter because
the Post Of ce felt you may prefer not to have it since you
received a similar item last week or the parcel appeared
too big?
I am aware that at one time the Post Of ce placed
bins in which unwanted items could be put, but that
higher authorities elsewhere, decided that doing that
and disposing of items was not within their mandate and
so it was stopped. Tat of course, changed nothing and
the littering goes on. I do believe the present policy in not
providing bins solve nothing and that the higher authori-
ties are merely closing their eyes to the problem in the
hope that it may disappear. But the local Post Of ce staf
must still dispose of unwanted items, which is more un-
tidy in appearance than having bins available. Bins or no
bins, it still amounts to improper littering, whether or not
it may be an ofence under Town By-Law.
Today I tried to gently move part of the huge mess
to determine whether there were any funeral announce-
ments on either of the two shelves. As soon as I touched
the pile, much of it slid to the foor and I had to gather it
all up. I decided to give up attempting to move any more
in order to look for funeral announcements. In any event;
this situation is an insult to the families of any deceased if
there were announcements there.
Please therefore stop viewing the Post Of ce as the
culprit, and take unwanted items home for disposal.

Dear Editor,
W
.C. Fields line Never give a sucker an even break,
or smarten up a chump has never been better ex-
ecuted than by the Conservative government and their
farmer-disenfranchisement policies.
Teir f rst move upon election in 2006 was to tear up
the farmer-railcar agreement. Tis agreement would have
given farmers a place at the grain transportation table, and
while it wouldnt have solved all the marketing problems
from last year it would have at least given farmers a look
behind the curtain.
Tis move was followed by taking away the commu-
nity pasture network that farmers have relied on for de-
cades, destroying the PFRA and the tree nursery, vapor-
izing the support that farmers had through the margin
based Agristability program, and weakening the Canadian
Grain Commission.
In parallel was the defunding and destruction of the
grain varietal development and research capacityand
this at a time when the worlds population has never been
higher and the climate has increasing variability.
Decimation of the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) was
nextfarmers were disenfranchised and not allowed to
vote on the matter according to the existing law, taxpay-
ers were billed an unnecessary $349 million in 2011, and
the $16 billion world leading exporter was reduced from a
business to a political maneuver with a few hundred mil-
lion in assets.
Predictably the destruction of orderly marketing
through the real CWB cost farmers $4 billion in lost in-
come for the 2013 crop (money that ended up in grain
company pockets, lost sales and demurrage charges),
and the government now refuses to publish any fnancial
reports for the Ritz-run CWB since 2012. With fnancial
cover-ups and fast-tracking the give-away of farmer-paid
CWB assets, it looks like the government is trying to bury a
dead skunk as fast as they can.
An Ag. Minister from Ontario or BC could not have ac-
complished this much destruction. No, the Minister had
to be a short-term thinker from the prairies where Conser-
vative votes could be taken for granted. Somewhere W.C
Fields is feeling warm and fuzzy all over again.

T
he front page lead sto-
ry of the Te Tribune
f fty years ago this week
was that of a major fre in
the downtown business
district which, miracu-
lously, did not result in
any loss of life.
About 20 minutes af-
ter midnight on Friday,
September 18th, 1964 a
propane heater exploded
at Minnedosa Bowling
Lanes, just south of the
Patricia Caf. Te site of
Minnedosa Bowling Lanes
is today occupied by
Maushies Restaurant and
the Patricia Caf building
is today occupied by Sun
Sun Chinese Restaurant.
Tere were six peo-
ple (three customers and
three staf ) inside the
caf part of the building
at the time of the explo-
sion. All were fortunate
to escape without injury.
One of the staf members
working that night was my
aunt, Alice Wade, who I
interviewed about the ex-
plosion in 2008. She felt
extremely lucky to have
survived the explosion as
she had just been down
in the basement near the
propane heater only mo-
ments before it exploded.
At the moment of the
explosion, those inside
the building recalled the
foor lifting and dishes and
other items fying through
the air in all directions.
One customer, Benny
Tompson, was quoted in
the next weeks Tribune as
saying Tere was a tre-
mendous boom and both
the table and us were in
the air. Te explosion
blew out the entire back of
the building as well as the
plate glass windows at the
front of the building.
Moments after the ex-
plosion, the Minnedosa
Fire Brigade was called
upon by someone next
door at the Patricia Caf.
Within minutes, frefght-
ers arrived and found
the bowling lanes build-
ing fully engulfed with
f ames, powered by the
propane, shooting 50 feet
in the air. A witness re-
ported that from the south
hill it looked as if the en-
tire downtown area was
ablaze.
For awhile, there
were concerns that the
f re would spread and
destroy the entire block
between the CPR track
and what is today known
as Armitage Avenue. At
one time during the battle
all four buildings within
that block were on fre.
In addition to Minnedosa
Bowling Lanes, fre spread
to the Patricia Caf to the
north and Minnedosa Tire
Shop and Bullard Motors
to the south. Local fre-
f ghters were successful
in containing the worst
of the fre to the bowling
lanes building, which was
completely destroyed. Te
other three buildings were
saved but did sufer smoke
and water damage. Today,
the old Patricia Caf is
the only one of these four
buildings remaining as
the former Bullard Motors
building, most recently
known as the old M and
M Autobody Shop was
demolished a few years
ago. Although the neigh-
bouring building was en-
gulfed in flames, the Pa-
tricia Caf remained open
throughout the battle that
morning serving refresh-
ments and lunch to weary
firemen.
As the sun rose hours
after the explosion, fre-
men were still dowsing the
dying embers of the fre
and a thick black cloud of
smoke hung heavily over
the Minnedosa Valley.
Smoke continued to rise
from the ashes until 4 p.m.
that day.
At the time of the
fire, Minnedosa Bowling
Lanes was owned by Mr.
Stan Johnson. The busi-
ness had just undergone
renovations and plans to
install automatic equip-
ment were in the works
when the destructive ex-
plosion occurred. The
estimate of damage as a
result of this downtown
explosion was reported
at $35,000, a far cry from
what a similar disaster
would be quoted at today,
fifty years later.

H
ello and welcome as
always to the Cops
Corner. Lets have a look
at recent events. Police
responded to 60 calls for
service this reporting pe-
riod. As always, police
dealt with a variety of dif-
ferent things including as-
saults, weapons, impaired
drivers, municipal by
laws, animal calls, threats,
speeders, alcohol, just to
name a few.
A local male, turning
onto Highway #16, blind-
ed by the sun, was clipped
by a semi truck and trailer.
Luckily only minor in-
juries resulted from the
crash, and it could have
been much worse. Tank
goodness it wasnt.
A Winnipeg male was
caught drinking and driv-
ing on his way back to the
Minnedosa Campground.
He was pulled over for
having a busted headlight,
and it resulted in a three
month suspension after
he was found driving over
the legal limit. He will be
appearing in court on
those charges sometime
in the future.
A male from Brandon
received four Highway
Traf c Fines, and a Crimi-
nal Charge when he was
found driving his vehicle
past curfew in Minnedosa
without a license. He was
released to his parents
who came to pick him up,
but not before getting a
speeding ticket on their
way. Not a good night for
the family all around... un-
fortunately.
Speaking of speed-
ers this weeks speeder
of the week comes to you
from the Province of Sas-
katchewan - Land of the
Roughriders. Perhaps he
was on his way back to
watch the game, perhaps
he was listening to them
on the radio excitedly...
who knows. But he was
ripping on Highway #16
at a speed of 132km/hr.
Police slowed him down
enough to pass him a
$469.25 ticket through his
window, and he contin-
ued on his way back home.
Hopefully he slowed
down and didnt get any
more tickets on the rest of
his trip. I am sure he will
think twice next time he
is in Manitoba, that is for
sure. And there you have
it, your illustrious speeder
of the week.
And as Cst. Sample
likes to say, have a good
safe day.

fter having to close
the event early due to
weather complications,
Minnedosas Relay for
Life group concluded its
event this past weekend
with a Fight Back Cer-
emony.
It was a great after-
noon. We had about 37
people come by and we
were able to hold our Fight
Back Ceremony and slide
show that were unfortu-
nately cut short back in
July, commented Tammy
Gowler, event coordinator.
Te Fight Back Cer-
emony was held on the
afternoon of Sunday, Sep-
tember 21st at the Ukrai-
nian Hall. Tis ceremony
is held to symbolize the
emotional commitment
every individual can make
in the fght against cancer.
Te group held the
full Relay for Life event
on Saturday, July 5th at
the Rockin the Fields site
where 13 teams, 128 peo-
ple and 20 cancer survi-
vors came out to partici-
pate and raise funds for
cancer research.
This was the first time
that Relay for Life had
been held in the com-
munity and participants
raised approximately
$24,000.
As the original event
was cut short, we decided
to hold this secondary cer-
emony, which also gave
the community a chance
to preregister for next
years event. We had about
17 people sign up on Sun-
day, continued Gowler.
The Relay For Life
committee will be plan-
ning the Minnedosas
2015 event around July
5th once again.
Anyone interested in

innedosa United
Church will be host-
ing Stage Fright, Te T ril-
lusion Show as a Hallow-
een fundraiser.
Billed as 90 minutes of
spine-tingling Halloween
magic and mystery for the
whole family, Stage Fright
promises to be like nothing
youve ever seen before. A
haunted stage show with
nerve-shattering illusions
guaranteed to give you
goose bumps.
Te show is the brain-
child of master illusionist
John Kaplan, who stars in
the production along with
a cast of dancers and an as-
sortment of spooky spe-
cial guests.
John Kaplan is one of
Canadas premier touring
illusionists. He has been
touring Canada for near-
ly twenty years, and his
family magic shows have
earned hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars for schools
and community groups all
across the country.
Kaplans unique way
of blending magic with
music, theatre and dance
and incorporating classi-
cal magic with grand illu-
sion and original routines
has garnered enthusias-
tic response from across
Canada. By adding mean-
ing to his magic, John has
created a truly one-of-a-
kind magical experience
and developed into one of
Canadas favourite family
entertainers.
Stage Fright marks the
resurrection of the long-
dead Horror Ghost show,
a form of theatre that was
at the peak of its popular-
ity during the mid-thirties
through the late ffties
when vaudeville was king.
Stage Fright has taken
the original concept of the
Horror Ghost Show and
updated it for the nineties,
providing a chilling array
of nightmarish illusion
scenes that will leave you
with many haunting mem-
ories.

are stressed? Do you
eat when you are bored?
You are not alone. Many
people from diferent
backgrounds struggle with
their eating. A program
called Craving Change is
being of ered this fall by
Prairie Mountain Healths
Healthy Living Staf to
help improve peoples re-
lationship with food. Te
program, developed by a
Registered Dietitian and
Psychologist in Canada,
is based on research and
practical techniques that
can be used in a group or
individual setting.
Many individuals who
struggle with their eating
are looking for answers
and want to understand
better why they eat the way
they do. As one Craving
Change course participant
commented, I know what
to eat, but I just cant seem
to do it!
Craving Change is
a unique program that is
designed to address some
of these personal eating
struggles. Te program
provides participants with
information that will in-
crease their awareness
about their eating trig-
gers and gives strategies
to manage their eating be-
haviour better.
Vanessa Hamilton, a
Registered Dietitian for
Health Promotion, Prai-
rie Mountain Health is
licenced to lead Craving
Change. Hamilton says,
We live in a society where
outside factors greatly af-
fect our eating. Tis pro-
gram will give people the
tools and confdence to
gain control over their eat-
ing.
Craving Change will
help you be aware of why
you eat the way you do, to
comfort yourself without
food and to develop ways
to overcome food crav-
ings. Food is a part of our
daily lives. Craving Change
is designed for people
who struggle to maintain
healthy eating habits and
want to feel more in con-
trol of their eating. Tis
program is NOT about di-
eting, Hamilton says. It is
about understanding and
controlling the behaviours
that lead to over eating.
Craving Change is
not advised for those with
a medical condition who
do not understand their
diet needs, such as some-
one with newly diagnosed
type 2 diabetes. Diet coun-
selling and teaching are
not part of the program.
Participants of the pro-
gram can purchase a work-
book for the cost of $6.00
that includes key messages
from each class and activ-
ity worksheets. Te free
course is ofered to adults
18 years and older.

tails, times, dates and loca-
tion.

A
stroll away from the
beach, situated on the
edge of town, the Gulls
Rest Bed and Breakfast
of ers guests the conve-
nience of town amenities
with the serenity of coun-
try stillness.
One of the most recent
additions to the Minnedo-
sa business community,
the Gulls Rest is a newly
opened bed and breakfast
located at 5 Bison Hills
Road, of of Beach Road,
across from the camp-
ground.
I have always wanted
to have a B&B. It has been
something that has always
interested me, comment-
ed Linda Braun.
Garth and Linda
Braun recently moved to
the community with their
three children, Kylie (20),
Jake (18), Alister (17), after
living in the Zhoda, locat-
ed just south of Steinbach,
for the past 17 years.
Tree years ago, after
my uncle had passed away
we drove through here. We
stopped in town for lunch
and I said to my husband
that I really liked this area
and that this could be
somewhere I could see us
living, continued Braun.
Garth then began to
work as a general manager
at the Canadian Centre for
Gene Transfer in Hamiota
with Genesus. And that is
when we began to look at
moving here.
Te Braun family has
since purchased Art Dal-
tons previous residence
and transformed an old of-
fce building on the prop-
erty into a secondary living
space.
Te open concept, pri-
vate suite is separate from
the main home and ofers
one queen and two twin
beds, a kitchenette, en
suite, dining and lounge
areas, as well as numer-
ous HD channels, WiFi
and Netflix.
I love to cook and
will be ofering some eve-
ning meals as well as the
standard B&B breakfast
service. I dont have one
style of cooking but I sup-
pose I am a typical prairie
farm wife. Everything that
I make is from scratch and
made from produce out
of my garden, expressed
Braun.
I will also be of ering
a choice of a hot breakfast
choice or continental and
will be serving guests in
the guest house.
Tis is an amazing
little town and Garth and
I are really looking forward
to getting involved in the
community. I am excited
to join the horticulture so-
ciety next year and we will
see what else we can get
into, added Braun.

W
ith the end of the
season upon us,
the Minnedosa Golf and
Country Club has begun
to prepare the course
for closure and will soon
know the impact of the
seasons rough start
caused by flood waters
and excess moisture.
All-in-all it was a
pretty decent summer
considering the weather
hurdles. We saw traffic
pick up slightly in August
but certainly not as busy
as a regular season, ex-
plained Deb Pritchard,
resident golf pro.
The financial out-
come of the season re-
mains to be seen. We will
have to wait until we close
up the restaurant and
clear out some of the in-
ventory at the pro shop to
have final numbers.
For the first half of the
season, nine holes were
closed due to flood waters
affecting the greens but
course staff worked dili-
gently in order to re-open
the entire 18-hole course
by the last week in July.
The cold fall and wet
summer did affect our
regular round traffic and
as this community is an
agriculture based com-
munity many of our regu-
lar customers businesses
were affected, which in
turn affects the amount of
excess funds they have to
spend on leisure and re-
tail, added Pritchard.
With a few wind-
ups scheduled for the
last weeks in September,
course staff will begin
the process of putting the
course to bed, selling off
items in the pro shop and
preparing the greens for
winter in the first week
of October, unless the fall
sunshine holds out a little
longer.
We would certainly
love to have a few more
weeks of play. We gen-
erally lose a lot of traf-
fic come September as
school is back in, there is
less time in the evening to
play with sunlight and the
cabin areas close, con-
tinued Pritchard.
The course is typical-
ly closed around Thanks-
giving weekend but the
pins will stay until the
weather turns.
The clubhouse will
be open until the end of
September and in Octo-
ber we will be open for
the early shift for break-
fast and lunch and then
close later in the after-
noon.

W
hen it comes to
psychic mediums,
John Edward is one of the
most well-known in the
f eld. Next month, John
will embark on an 11-date
Canadian tour with a stop
scheduled in Winnipeg
before heading to Austra-
lia for a tour in November.
Recently, I sat down with
John for a quick interview
during his Canadian me-
dia tour.
For the past three de-
cades John has been using
his psychic abilities to help
others receive important
messages from loved ones
who have passed away or
crossed over. He dislikes
the word death as he
believes we do not die but
rather transition. I believe
in an after-life, explained
John. I believe when we
leave the physical world
we transition and go to the
spirit world or the other
side or hereafter or Heav-
en, whatever you want to
call it. I would like people
to have no fear when its
coming their time to make
the transition. I would like
them to take the fear out of
it; the fear that there isnt
anything else, because
there is. You will see your
friends, family and pets
in Heaven. Its like going
home for a reunion.
Anyone who has
watched Johns television
series, Crossing Over or
Cross Country knows
that the messages he com-
municates with his audi-
ences are not a simple,
hello from someones
late family member, but a
more detailed scenario or
memory that only the per-
son receiving the message
could know and validate.
Sometimes, they have no
knowledge of the mes-
sage John brings through
to them but after checking
with other family members
fnd it was actually a valid
message from beyond.
So how does he do it?
John describes his connec-
tion with energies as being
similar to daydreaming;
the diference is these are
not his own personal day-
dreams, but someone elses
which at times can be dif-
fcult for him to clarify and
understand. Sometimes,
its like what are they (the
energies) showing me?
I just tell them (the audi-
ence) what Im seeing and
hopefully it makes sense
to them, mentioned John.
He shared a story in which
he was connecting with
a female energy that was
showing him something
that did not make a whole
lot of sense a surgery after
her death. It turned out be-
ing a message for her fami-
ly about her autopsy which
made complete sense to
them. Ive learned over
the years to trust the ener-
gies. I actually trust them
more than the living, said
John. A lot of people will
follow their heart; Im not
one of those people. I pay
attention to the energies
around me and what they
are telling me. Tese en-
ergies have guided John
throughout his life and
have assisted him in mak-
ing his own personal life
choices.
Troughout his jour-
ney as a professional psy-
chic medium, John has
run into a number of skep-
tics accusing him of being
a fake or a fraud. I respect
their opinions and views.
Its good to be skeptical and
ask questions, said John
who admits to being some-
what of a skeptic himself.
While he was excited to
read the book Heaven is
for Real, his personal view
of this book and recent hit
movie was tainted when he
learned the subjects father
is a pastor. John encour-
ages anyone attending one
of his readings to bring
their skepticism but also
an open mind and a lot of
love.
Johns upcoming ap-
pearance in Winnipeg
will mark his third visit to
Manitobas capital city. For
those who have not attend-
ed a psychic reading in the
past, John explains how
his group readings work.
Expect Crossing Over,
the show, except live, said
John. I try to teach people
about the world of energy
initially as well as answer
their questions. Tere is
no guarantee that every
person attending a group
reading will actually re-
ceive a message from the
other side. Its not just
about the readings, con-
tinued John. A reading
is for the people that are
going to get them but the
(educational) events are
for the people who are not.
I feel that Im teaching ev-
erybody.
When its his turn to
leave this world and cross
over, I asked John what he
would like to be remem-
bered for? Remember me
for the passion I have for
making people appreciate,
validate and communicate
with the people who are in
your life here today so no
one has to wonder, said
John. Te next time you
see someone really might
be the last time you see
them here.

T
hi s f al l s weat her
and untimely rains
have seen some produc-
ers struggling to get the
crop off in a timely mat-
ter which has resulted in
some very poor quality
grain. Marketing lower
quality grain can create
unneeded stress and grief
for producers; however
there are ways to cope
with downgraded crops.
The most i mport ant
part of marketing poor
quality grain is being
prepared. Dont panic,
know the quality and find
a buyer who will offer the
best value.
Producers often panic
too quickly when it comes
to downgraded grain, es-
pecially at harvest time.
At this time of year, buy-
ers will obviously prefer
to take good quality over
poor and may indicate
that the poorer quality will
not be marketable. Once
the entire harvest is com-
plete and buyers know
exactly what qualities
exist, opportunities for
marketing poorer quality
grain may occur. Compa-
nies will continue to try
to f nd a market for this
type of grain, especially
if it is in excess, as proft
also depends on quanti-
ties handled. It may take
some extra work, but shop
around to diferent com-
panies. Just because some
buyers arent in the mar-
ket to buy lower quality
grain, doesnt mean oth-
ers are in the same posi-
tion. Explore new mar-
kets, as opportunity from
non-typical buyers could
exist, such as livestock
producers with feed short-
ages. Communication
with buyers is very im-
portant in the event that a
deal becomes available, so
continue to stay in contact
to take advantage of these
opportunities.
A crucial step in mar-
keting grain is taking good
samples. Without thor-
ough samples, it is tough
to know what is actually in
the bin. Since the entire
crop may not be afected,
it may be possible to work
with companies to make a
package deal by blending
some of the poor quality
with good quality to bring
the grade up to a favour-
able average. Ensure large
enough samples are taken
so there is enough to take
to various companies in
competition for the grain.
Consulting with indepen-
dent graders such as the
Canadian Grain Commis-
sion is also benefcial, as it
can provide an unbiased
assessment of the sample
which can help prevent
possible disputes with
buyers.
Many farmers have
likely already contracted
some of this years crop. If
there is not enough good
quality to fll the contract,
communicate with the
buyer to fully understand
the discounts or buy-out
clauses. Sometimes it
could be worth buying out
the contract and taking
that loss to allow a fresh
start with a new market
opportunity that has aris-
en elsewhere. Depending
on the contract and grain
that is available, there may
be an opportunity to get
another producer to take
over and fll the contract.
Companies may be able
to work out an agreement
with producers that re-
sult in a more favourable,
least-cost scenario.
Unless cash f ow is
an issue on the farm, be-
ing patient could be the
best action to take as new
markets may arise for
poor quality grain. As the
harvest comes into the
bin, try not to panic about
quality being lower than
desired. Market the prod-
uct to as many companies
and end users as possible
and make the most desir-
able decision that fnan-
cially benefts the farm.

Smart Autumn Dcor
Ideas Tat You Will Fall
For. Heres a theme that
couldnt be simpler. You
can decorate just by taking
a walk in your own back-
yard.
Create a colourful
design using sunfowers,
cattails, and wheat shafts.
Arrange them in a big vase
in the centre of the dining
room table. Place autumn
leaves on the table around
the base of the vase.
Glue gold velvet leaves
onto a charger platter to
create an interesting dis-
play base for a fall candle
arrangement. Use either
hot glue or a spray adhes-
ive to attach the leaves.
Place a fat orange or
yellow candle in a low
bowl. Fill the bowl around
the base of the candle with
orange and black jellyb-
eans or candy corn. For
a larger display create a
candle garden on a plat-
ter, and fll the base with
candy corn.
To make easy napkin
rings for fall, hot glue some
leaves around 1 wide
rounds of cardboard tub-
ing (from gift wrap rolls).
Glue a strip of coloured
paper or fabric to the in-
side of the ring. Attach
two pieces of raf a on the
bottom with hot glue, and
bring them around to tie a
bow on top. Tis will help
hold the leaves down. A
drop of glue under the bow
will hold it in place.
Hollow out several
mini pumpkins and use
them as votive holders. Re-
member, never leave burn-
ing candles unattended!
An array of gourds
adds an interesting touch
to home exteriors. Al-
though they will only last
a few days, they do add
ambience to your porch.
For the interior, hollow out
the inside of a larger gourd
or small squash, to make
a bowl in which you can
serve soup, dips, relish or
ketchup to guests. In each
case, make sure to use a
uniformly shaped gourd or
squash with a fat bottom.
Make a quirky topi-
ary by placing a sturdy
branch in a box or fower-
pot, weighing it down
with bricks or rocks, cover
with nuts. Cut or drill a
hole through the largest
pumpkin, and place on
the branch. Top with two
smaller pumpkins.
Pumpkin Snowman:
Stack three pumpkins in
graduated sizes, drilling
holes through each and
inserting a large stick to se-
cure. Add stick arms and a
face using a black marker.
Party piata: Combine
one-quarter cup four and
one cup hot water, stir and
add fve cups lightly boil-
ing water. Cool until warm.
Soak newspaper strips in
the solution. Drape over a
form such as a balloon or
a bottle. Dry and add more
layers, using the paste as
glue. You can make pump-
kins, or a centerpiece
turkey! Fill with candy or
leave empty.
Holiday wreath: Buy
an inexpensive grapevine
wreath and glue on fall
items such as: pine cones,
tiny gourds, Indian corn,
acorns, etc.Top it of with
a fall coloured bow.
Pine cone turkeys:
Using a large pinecone,
glue a brown pipe cleaner
to the smaller end and curl
the top of the pipe cleaner
to look like the turkeys
neck. On the opposite end
of the pinecone, glue small
brown feathers. Group
this pinecone turkey with
others for a centerpiece or
leave individually as place
card holders.
Changing your win-
dow treatments from light
summery fabrics and col-
ours to something with a
heavier texture and darker
colour is one quick way to
warm up a room for fall.
Preserving Leaves:
Place foliage between two
pieces of waxed paper
(waxy side against the
leaves and cover the iron-
ing board cover with a
towel). Press the wax paper
with a medium hot iron,
coating the leaves with the
wax. Peel of the wax paper.
Replace the wax paper for
each pressing.
Use an old wagon,
mans boot or bench to
hold your outside autumn
display. Arrange a bale
of hay, corn stalks and
pretty colored leaves. Add
a couple of gourds and a
few pumpkins, a scarecrow
and a straw hat.

20 Te Minnedosa Tribune Friday, September 26, 2014
By DARRYL HOLYK
F
rom Friday, Septem-
ber 12th to Sunday
the 14th, Manitoba Cano-
la Growers Association
hosted its third annual
Canola Connect Camp.
Te purpose of the camp
is to provide an opportu-
nity for consumers, food
writers and professionals
from across Canada to ex-
perience farming in rural
Manitoba frst-hand.
Te camp opens doors
and lines of communica-
tion between consumers
and ag producers to pro-
vide a better understand-
ing of the world of agricul-
ture. Camp participants
learn why those involved
in the agriculture indus-
try do what they do and
how technology and sci-
ence developments have
changed and improved the
industry.
Te nine participants
taking part in this years
camp, themed, Grow-
ing the Farm to Farm
Conversation included
Pay Chen TV and radio
host from Toronto, Dan
Clapson food writer and
columnist from Calgary,
Mary Jane Feeke chef,
business owner and cook-
ing instructor from Selkirk,
Dara Gurau dietitian and
food blogger from Toronto,
Carol Harrison dietitian
and food consultant from
Toronto, Lindsey Ma-
zur dietitian and Home
Economist from Winnipeg,
Jennifer Pinarski To-
days Parent blogger from
Ontario, Dr. Cami Ryan
author, blogger and ag-
riculture advocate from
Saskatchewan and Chrissy
Troy radio co-host from
Winnipeg.
Te groups frst farm
visit was to Dalgarnos
Pen-Dale Farms Ltd. near
Newdale. Here, the partici-
pants enjoyed a gourmet
farm supper, which due to
the weather was served in
a machinery shop adding
to the true farm experi-
ence! After supper, partici-
pants took part in an open
discussion about some hot
topics when it comes to ag-
riculture - biotechnology
and Genetically Modifed
crops. Watch for a feature
article on this discussion
in an upcoming edition of
Te Tribune.
Other stops on
this years Canola Con-
nect Camp included Jay
Derkachs grain elevator in
Russell, Louise Millers Sil-
ver Creek Bison farm, Pat
and Paul Orsaks grain and
oilseed farm. While visit-
ing the Orsaks farm, camp
participants took part in a
harvest tradition lunch
out in the feld. Each par-
ticipant also had an oppor-
tunity to ride in a combine,
something many had nev-
er done before.
During their stop at
Donna and Carmen Jack-
sons High Bluf Stock
Farm, camp participants
took part in a discussion
which dispelled some ru-
mours and concerns about
proper food labelling and
food marketing in Canada.
Te tour group crossed
over the Manitoba-
Saskatchewan border
for a visit to Wendell Es-
tate Honey Farm to learn
about bees and honey
pr oduc t i on be f or e
heading back into Manito-
ba for its fnal tour stop at
Leslie and Dale Luhowys
mixed farm. Here, partici-
pants learned grain, cattle
and Saskatoon farming
and enjoyed delicious
homemade Saskatoon pie
made with the Luhowys
homegrown Blue Moon
Saskatoons.
Camp participants
enjoyed the Canola Con-
nect Camp and hopefully
came away with a clearer
understanding of the vari-
ous farming practices be-
ing used on todays farms
whether its crops, animals,
produce or any one of the
many other farms that fall
under the Canadian Agri-
culture umbrella.
