By HILLARY CAMPBELL

rad Kingdon was given a heart-warming surprise at


last weeks Sports Dinner. He was this years winner
of the Volunteer of the Year Award, which was presented
to him by the Minnedosa and District Recreation Board.
Kingdon was nominated by the Minnedosa Minor
Hockey Atom team parents. He was nominated for his
contributions to sport and recreation development, for
his outstanding leadership abilities, for his continued
volunteerism, for being an example to others, and for the
impact that his contributions have had on the community of Minnedosa. Despite all of his wonderful work in the
community, Kingdon told The Tribune that he was not
expecting the award, it took me completely by surprise.
Kingdon played for the Minnedosa Bombers hockey
team, has taken on multiple coach and head coach positions for the towns hockey teams since 2006, he has
coached baseball teams from 2010-2013, and he has
maintained the ice at Skate the Lake for four years. In
addition to this, he also sits on the Minnedosa Minor
Board and also helps the Town of Minnedosa organize
many outdoor events. According to the Minnedosa Minor Atom parents letter of nomination, Kingdon, is well
known to go above and beyond his paid work.

he unveiling of the
new plaque in Tanners Crossing Park was
held on Thursday, October
20th. The plaque shows
the process that was involved in moving Caboose
No. 436781 to the park in
1970, which later changed
its number to 431970,
which signified the date of
the Centennial year. With
the help of the railroaders and non-railroaders,
volunteers and the Town,
the caboose was placed.
Th e Railroad Centennial
Committee was formed

on February 3, 1970, with


the purpose of helping the
Town of Minnedosa celebrate Manitobas 100th
Anniversary. The committee was, according to
Chairman, Ken Harris,
made up of employees
from all trades of the Canadian Pacific Railway including retired railroaders
and the Ladies Auxiliary.
During the Annual
Fun Festival in 1970, a special day was set aside, to
be known as Railroaders
Day. Thirteen years later,
in 1983, a ceremony was
held on Railroaders Day.

presented the Town of
Minnedosa with a new addition to the park display.
Wes Mummery, CMO of
C.P. Rail was the guest
speaker. He was the son of
Russ Mummery, who was
the Locomotive Foreman
at Minnedosa from 1939
to 1956. Unit 4083 was
moved in by C.P.R. engineer Glen Everett, who
blew the whistle on the
unit for the very last time.
At the plaque unveiling ceremony held on October 20th this year, Everetts daughter, Lori Laming
was present and told The

Tribune that her father began his career as a fireman


on the old trains before the
newer diesels came into
existence, and then became an engineer on the
diesels. Another community member recalled that
the Patricia Caf (currently Sun Sun Restaurant)
was open 24 hours a day
to accommodate the odd
hours that the railroaders
worked. Another person
remembered the old confectionary next to the train
station as well.

mentioned that what he


hopes to get out of the trip
is the experience, while Diamond is looking to learn
more background history.
The runner-up in the
contest was the Minnedosa Collegiate band, which

applied so that band students could attend Musicfest 2017 in Niagara


Falls. Also in the top four
were the Minnedosa and
District Farmers Market
and the Minnedosa Beach
Enhancement Committee.
The ultimate goal is
to raise awareness about
the great work that Credit
Unions are doing around
the world and give members the opportunity to get
more involved, explained
Taylor. Credit Unions and
associations throughout
the world celebrate the
day with fundraisers, open
houses, contests, picnics
and parades.
Th is is the second
year that MCU has held
the Land-a-Grand contest.
Taylor noted that, it was
an idea to help the smaller
community groups. MCU
was looking for a way to
give back to their community, and help some of
the organizations that did
not get some of the large
grants that are out there.
She added that, any one
of them would have been
deserving.

Rail Plaque

The plaque, which can be seen right in front of the
engine and caboose in the park, has written that, it was
a huge volunteer undertaking moving a 114 ton locomotive to its present location. Currently, Harris is the only
member remaining of the Committee that was started
in 1970.
Harris, and a number of other community members gathered at the spot to show offthe new plaque and
appreciate the rich history of the railroad in Minnedosa.
The railway station in Minnedosa was built in 1910, and
provided passenger and freight services as well as administrative office for C.P.R. employees.

Awarded At
Big Idea Event

Friday, October 28, 2016

RFM Gives Back Over $29,000

By VERN MAY

our rising entrepreneurs cleaned up at Thursdays


Whats the Big Idea? entrepreneurship event in Neepawa, collectively claiming nearly $7,000 in cash and prizes.
The big winner of the day was Tim Wiebe, of Edens
Avion Harvest production plant. The small pulse marketing outfit, which just opened its doors under the current
ownership in January has seen an incredible debut year,
securing deals for market placement of their product in 23
Co-op stores and recently signed a deal with Save-On Foods
out west for distribution into those major supermarkets in
Alberta and British Columbia. Laying claim to the awards
sponsors by NADCO, the R.M. of Rosedale and the Neepawa Chamber of Commerce, Wiebe emerged from the event
with $4,300 toward the continued growth of their operation.
The name called most at award time, though was
Minnedosas Kim Burgess. Burgess, who has aspirations
to open an Art Therapy practice in Minnedosa, delivered a
powerful and compelling pitch which saw her name called
in four prize categories. She took home $1300 in awards
sponsored by the R.M. of Minto-Odanah, the Minnedosa
Chamber of Commerce anda voucher for digital marketing services courtesy of Trend Lab Marketing. Burgess pitch was also awardedthe RBC Pitch of the Day.
Kelly Spurway, via a concise and punchy pitch
by Lianne Christie, secured a $1,000 award for the
Queens Eatery in Rapid City. The new operator of the
community restaurant will apply the prize money toward upgrades to the commercial kitchen equipment to better serve patrons to the historic dining spot.
The youngest presenter of the day was Neepawas
Kennedy Baker. The enterprising sixteen year old, whose
artistic skills as a creator of hand-painted footwear has
already secured the attention of the Winnipeg Jets NHL
franchise after designing a pair of shoesfeaturingthe
teams logo. While only developed as a prototype, Baker has received a letter to request a meetingwith the
teamsmarketing department about carrying her designs
in the offi cial Jets store as well as an offer to connect
her to other NHL franchises and CFL teams. Baker was
awarded the Minnedosa Credit Union / Beautiful Plains
Credit Union Best Overall Idea award, valued at $300.
In addition to the pitches presented, attendees were
treated to a line up of industry andsmall business speakers which kept the packed house riveted throughout
theday. The event was attended by patrons not only from
Minnedosa and Neepawa, butalso saw guests from as far
away as Kipling, Saskatchewan attending to learn more
about the event and to possibly adopta similar approach
in their own community.

Brad Kingdon Award


Continued from Page 1
The nomination letter
also notes that, Parents
who have had Brad coach
their child(ren) in any
sport have experienced
fair play, team play, honesty and positive encouragement for their child. Brad
encourages and expects
his players to support their
team mates off and on the
playing field. Because of
his respect for the kids and
their families, Kingdon
has in turn earned their
respect, and, is known by
the kids to run his practices with a big smile, fairness, kindness and still a
firm hand, the letter said.
Kingdon has been
volunteering in the com-

munity for about 15 years,


and is known for a positive attitude, and always
saying yes when asked to
help with things. Kingdon
noted that he is usually
running somewhere. If
evened out over the entire
year, the volunteer work
that Kingdon does would
be about four hours each
week. However, he noted
that at certain times of the
year it is very busy, while at
other times things get very
quiet for him.
The letter also stated
that, Brad has reinforced
in many children over
the years the qualities of
hard work, team support
and respect for the people
around you by example.
These are life skills that as

parents we believe (hope)


our children will take into
their future. Kingdon has
been a positive example
for many of Minnedosas

has not gone unnoticed.
When asked how he
felt about winning the
award, Kingdon noted
that, it was very much
an honour because of the
number of good volun-

teers this town has, to be


picked for that award is a
huge honour.
The Town of Minnedosa is very lucky to have
such a dedicated member

anything I know, and I just
try to keep sport going in
Minnedosa, said Kingdon.

Be Safe, Be Seen
This Halloween

Whats On The Horizon?


Living in
Paradise

SUBMITTED

ith witches, goblins, and super-heroes descending


on neighbourhoods across Canada, the Canadian
Red Cross offers parents some safety tips to help prepare
their children for a safe and enjoyable trick-or-treat holiday. Halloween should be filled with surprise and enjoyment, and following some common sense practices can
keep events safer and more fun!
Costumes should be light-coloured and fl ame resistant with reflective strips so that children are more easily
seen at night. (And remember to put reflective tape on
bikes, skateboards, and brooms, too!)
Costumes should be short enough to avoid tripping.
Remind children to keep away from open fi res and
candles. (Costumes can be extremely flammable.)
Use face paint rather than masks or things that will
cover the eyes.
Remind children to walk, slither, and sneak on sidewalks - not in the street.
Explain to children that calls should be made along
one side of the street first and then the other, and that
its best to cross the street only at intersections or crosswalks.
Remind children to look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars, trucks, and low-flying
brooms.
Provide yourself or the children with a fl ashlight to
see better and to be better seen.
Have children plan their route and share it with you
and the family.
Trick or Treaters should travel in groups of four
or fi ve. Young children should be accompanied by an
adult.
Visit homes that have the porch light on.
Make sure children know they should accept treats
at the door and must not get into cars or enter the homes
or apartments of strangers.
Remind children not to eat their treats and goodies
until they are examined by an adult at home. And candy
should not be eaten if the package is already opened.
Small, hard pieces of candy are a choking hazard for
young children.
Make sure you and your children know where the
Block Parent houses are located in the neighbourhood.
Set agreed-to boundaries with your children. Explain the importance of staying within them and arriving
home on time.

hat kind of businesses would do well in


Minnedosa? That is a question that I hear often
from people interested to invest in the community, as
well as those who have developed an emotional connection to our location and want to stay, but have been
unable to lock down a stable financial future for themselves by collecting a paycheque from someone else.
Last week, I had the opportunity to co-present the
second annual Whats the Big Idea? and the picture
of the future of rural Manitoba continues to become
clearer for me with each passing year. In fact, what I
see is that the participation in this event is representative of where our communities are going if they want
to thrive. Let me share my experience with you.
The fi rst thing that I see at events like this is that
there is a lot of passion in people as they pursue opportunities that will keep them connected to Minnedosa
and area. We are blessed to have people here with
a diverse skillset and a passion for helping others
through their talents that could easily secure opportunities in larger markets. Still, they have chosen to
set down their roots here and to pursue their passions
with this as their home base. That is critical at all levels
of business attraction and expansion. From our young
people coming out of high school and exploring entrepreneurship as their opportunity to conquer the world
to those who are juggling the balance of career and
family and trying to keep all responsibilities in hand.
That passion exists and is something that we need to
nurture.
While the emphasis in many rural communities
over the past generation has been primarily focused
on the pursuit of industry, we must recognize that the
real life of the community comes from entrepreneurship and enterprise that is grown from the very soil we

call home. Yes, it is important that we are investmentready and are able to readily accommodate industry
should we find ourselves on their radar, but the local
success stories that we will celebrate for years to come
will emerge from those stories of local people who
identify a gap in the market and create the services
and sell the products to meet the needs of the community creating jobs and stimulating the local economy
along the way.
Perhaps the most important thing for us to acknowledge is that while we spend our time looking
at the town as it is and try to reconcile what we feel
is missing and needed, those arent the types of ideas
that we see coming forward at the Big Idea event. In
fact, some of these proposed ventures even fall outside of what are considered to be the hottest trends
in business start-ups. While we may identify what we
feel is missing, these businesses arent the deal breaker that we might believe that they are for residents in
the community. If they were, then undoubtedly, we
would have seen someone tackle that as their surefire
moneymaker for the next generation.
The message that is conveyed loud and clear from
Whats the Big Idea? is this: Individuals look deep
within themselves and identify what they are passionate about and how they can develop that passion as a
business. But most importantly, a business that they
believe will be successful by setting up shop here. At
the end of the day, isnt that what the root of economic
development is all about setting the stage for businesses of all sizes to identify that this is where they will
achieve the success they envision?
Whats on the horizon for business in Minnedosa
over the next decade? Your guess about the types of
businesses that we will see emerge is as good as mine.
But chances are, we are going to find ourselves excited
about the introduction of a new enterprise that we
didnt realize that we were missing that suddenly we
cant imagine living without.
Manitobas Valley Paradise is created by its people
and we need to talk. You can find me under the Discover Minnedosa banner on Main Street, reach me by email at edo@minnedosa.com, call me at 204-867-3885,

Important Bills Introduced


By New Government
Under The Dome
By

GREG NESBITT
Riding Mountain MLA

ts been a busy two weeks


since the Manitoba Legislature resumed sitting on
Monday, October 3rd.
Several
important
pieces of legislation have
been introduced, including Bill 7, which will ensure democracy in the
workplace and protect the
rights of employees.
The amendments to
Manitobas Labour Relations Act will make workplace union certification
by secret-ballot votes mandatory. This change will restore open and respectful
environments to Manitoba
workplaces after the previous government removed
that fairness and democracy years ago by eliminating
mandatory secret-ballot
voting.
With the reinstatement of mandatory secretballot votes, workers across
Manitoba will be able to
participate in decisions on
union certification without
fear of intimidation by colleagues, unions or employers.
Currently,
without
secret-ballot voting, workers are susceptible to unfair pressures. Fear of reprisals by co-workers and
dismissal by employers is
commonplace, and employees are often influenced in the way they vote.
Returning fair and
democratic secret-ballot

votes to Manitoba will also


give employers more certainty that union certification decisions are legitimate, regardless of their
outcomes.
Surveys have shown
that such secret-ballot voting is supported by most
people in our province.
As well, the provincial
Labour Management Review Committee, which
includes representatives
of business and labour organizations, has been consulted on this change.
These
legislative
amendments will bring
Manitoba in line with most
Canadian provinces that
require secret-ballot votes
for union certification. This
change is also in step with
our new governments belief in collaboration and
partnerships with workers, entrepreneurs and all
Manitobans.
We are proceeding
with this legislative change
in favour of fairness, transparency and democracy
for hard-working people
across Manitoba, as we
continue to fix the provinces finances, repair its
services and rebuild its
economy.
Bill 7, who was opposed by the NDP, passed
second reading on October 14th and will now go to
committee for comments
from labour, employers

and the public.


Other bills currently
up for debate include:
Bill 4 The Elections
Amendment Act. This bill
will require that any byelection be conducted
over a 28-day period, rather than the current 28-35
day window.
Bill 6 The Financial
Administration Amendment Act. This bill will
permit MLAs who are not
members of cabinet to be
appointed to the provincial Treasury Board. Passage of this bill will enable
the appointments of Colleen Mayer, MLA for St.
Vital and Reg Helwer, MLA
for Brandon West, to Treasury Board.
Bill 9 The Election
Financing
Amendment
Act. This bill will repeal the
NDPs Vote Tax which
paid an annual allowance
of $1.75 per vote received
to Manitoba political
parties. The PC Party of
Manitoba has never accepted this allowance and
believes it is wrong for taxpayers to fund the operation of political parties.
Pasture Tour
As the MLA for Riding
Mountain I was pleased to
be able to accompany the
Minister of Sustainable
Development, the Honourable Cathy Cox, and the
Honourable Ralph Eichler,
Minister of Agriculture, on
a tour of the Ellice-Archie
Community Pasture, situ-

ated between McAuley


and St. Lazare, on Wednesday, September 28th.
The Association of
Manitoba
Community
Pastures (AMCP) was
formed in 2014 after the
federal government began
transitioning community
pasture management to
the province, the minister
noted. The AMCP is made
up of patrons who pay fees
to use these pastures. The
pastures provide grazing
and breeding space for
livestock but also protect
natural prairie ecosystems
and protect the land from
impacts due to drought,
development or intensive
cropping.
Community
pastures were established in
the 1930s throughout the
three prairie provinces to
help reclaim badly eroded
soils. There are 23 community pastures in Manitoba covering 400,000
acres and 80 percent are
on provincial Crown land.
It is important to note
that five of the 12 members
of the provincial cabinet
have now visited Riding
Mountain since the new
government was elected.
Besides Ministers Cox and
Eichler, the Honourable
Ron Schuler (Minister for
Crowns), the Honourable
Eileen Clarke (Minister of
Indigenous and Municipal
Relations), and the Honourable Blaine Pedersen
(Minister of Infrastructure)
attended meetings and
toured the constituency.

Central Plains Cancer Services Visits Minnedosa


By HILLARY CAMPBELL

n Friday, October
14th, Sharilyn Knox
visited Minnedosa. Knox
is the new executive director for Central Plains
Cancer Services.
She
started in her new role in
August because, I want
to do something in my
life where Im doing some
good, and I know what
these services are in our
small communities, so I
want to help out.
The organization was
once known as the Central
Plains Cancer Care Services, but the word care
was taken out of the name
so that people would not
confuse it with Cancer
Care Manitoba. This distinction is important because, all the services that
we run, the transportation
services and the money
we raise, all stays within
our region, said Knox.
Before moving into
this role, Knox worked as

a branch manager for a are. She also stressed that

Knox mentioned that
the more a community
gets involved with the
program, the more they
are able to offer the services that they do, we need
support in these communities because all of
our funding comes from
donations, memoriams,
planned giving, and fundraisers.
These services are extremely important for the
people who are affected
by cancer. According to
Knox, I get stories from
people who are in treatment, from survivors from
family members who are
caregivers for cancer patients, about how having a
service like transportation
gave peace of mind for
somebody, that they knew
they could get there and
back with no worry.

McSorley and Meyer chat it up during Thursday nights Sports Dinner.


The evening concluded with a kitchen table
talk with McSorley and
Meyer, in which Meyer
would ask questions to
McSorley. The two would
then chat back and forth
and tell stories. Once this
part of the talk concluded,
the pair opened up to the
audience for any questions that they may wish
to ask.
Th is was McSorleys
fi rst time in Minnedosa,
however, he noted that,
Ive really enjoyed going
into a lot of the communities, you get a sense of
community and a sense

of giving back and a sense


of belonging, its really
fun. He was only in town
for one night, and then
planned to go to Winnipeg for the Heritage Classic game between the
Jets and the Oilers on the
weekend.
McSorley is one of 10
children that were born
into his family in southern
Ontario, and commented
that his passion for hockey came to him at a young
age, from my family, my
six brothers all played,
my grandfather used to
play a lot, my dad was a
big Rocket Richard fan.

With a family that was so


involved in hockey, he recalls bringing nets into a
cleaned-out old chicken
barn on his familys farm,
to create what he referred
to as a real hockey environment, where there was
no running and no hiding.
When asked what
he planned to talk about
during his evening at the
Sports Dinner, McSorley
noted that he has experience in going into different communities and,
they just want a sense of
what my career was like,
where you come from, and

people that had impacts.


Because of this, its better
to just get up, and tell stories. McSorley also added
that he prefers, having
a conversation with the
crowd, rather than talking
at them, I want to talk with
them. This must have
been a good choice for
the evening because the
crowd at the sports dinner was very engaged with
McSorley, and his downto-earth manner.
Minnedosa and District Rec Director, Nicole
Synchychyn, told The Tribune that, it turned out
really well, and Im glad to
see the community come
out to support us, and be
able to put all of the money back to a good cause.
She also had the chance
to speak with McSorley,
and noted that, he cares,
he wanted to know how
much we made in the end,
just because he wants to
make sure that our community does well because
we are doing it for a good
cause, hes really genuine.

New Walls Rising On Main Street

have seen the construction start in the west corner of the Heritage Co-op

General Manager for Heritage Co-op, commented
that, weve outgrown our
existing offices, in fact, we
are probably four or five
times the size of when our
offices were built, so were
just bursting at the seams
and needing some bigger
space.
The new offi ce space,
if all remains on schedule,
should be completed by
the spring of 2017. So far,

the foundation has been


laid. Once the building is
ready, the move into the
space will be a bit of a process. we have some lease
space, that were hoping
to move the MNP office
and the lawyer office that
are there right now, wed
like to move them into our
space, and wed be occupying the balance of the
building, said Zacharias.
Currently, the Coop administrative office
houses 10 employees who
will be making the move
into the new space, however Zacharias mentioned
that they will be looking to fi ll new positions
at that time as well. The
new building will have
more office space for employees, an open general
administration area and
other meeting spaces.

Why We Need A Softwood Lumber Agreement


View From
Parliament Hill
By

ROBERT SOPUCK

rade
negotiations
have become a major
topic in the House of Commons, with Belgium holding up the signing of the
proposed Canada-Europe
Trade Agreement, the Liberals indecisiveness over
the Trans Pacific Partnership, and their inaction on
reaching a Softwood Lumber Agreement with the
United States.
Although agriculture
dominates the south-

ern portion of our large


constituency, forestry is
a major industry in the
northern areas. I had the
opportunity to stand up
in the House of Commons
last week and explain to
the Liberal government
why rural communities
across Canada need them
to negotiate a new agreement immediately, or risk
losing thousands of jobs
across the country.
While many of the

other MPs focussed on the


logistics of trade negotiations during the debate, I
focussed on recognizing
the human aspects of this
large industry. The forestry industry employs over
400,000 workers across
Canada whose livelihoods
depend on continued exports of our products. With
an economy facing sluggish growth and tax increases being imposed by
the Liberals, the lumber
industry needs certainty
and stability more than
ever before.
In rural Canada, a softwood lumber business that
employs 100 to 250 people
can be the centrepiece of a
local communitys economy. Having this major employer in town can mean

that there are youth sports


teams, volunteers for service clubs, churches are
full and there is a thriving
society based around that
major mill. A mill closure
can be devastating. We
are seeing this north of us
right now with the potential closure of Tolko in The
Pas. Th is closure would
have ripple effects on other
businesses and communities across the province,
and potentially lead to further job losses.
Th is Liberal government has had a year to negotiate and reach an agreement with their American
counterparts for a new
Softwood Lumber Agreement. The Prime Minister
promised to have a deal
within 100 days of his trip

to Washington in February and now, eight months


later, we are still waiting.
Th e last time the
United States took action
against Canadian softwood imports, the entire
forestry industry took huge
hits, thousands of jobs
were lost and the industry
had to pay $5.4 billion in
duties. Canadian forestry
communities and workers cannot aff ord to take
that hit again. The lackadaisical attitude towards
reaching a softwood lumber agreement is part of
a much larger trend we
have seen from this Liberal
government towards our
natural resource industry,
and rural communities in
general. The Liberals seem
absolutely indifferent to

the impacts their inaction


has on good, hardworking
people across the country.
It is imperative that
the Liberals finally take
some action and reach a
new Softwood Lumber
Agreement with the United States. As your MP, I will
continue to hold the government to account on this
and any other issue that affects the economy of rural
Manitoba.
If you have any questions or concerns about
what happens at the federal level, please contact
my constituency office by
phone at 204-848-7000 or
1-877-405-8946 or by email

Students Explore Career Options


By TAYLOR GUGIN
MCI Career Prep student

s a part of a given opportunity on Friday,


October 21st, certain questions were answered regarding the MCI career
placements as a part of
student learning among a
career of their choice.
With MCIs career
placements, students have
the opportunity to learn
about careers including
hands-on
experiences.
When a student has a career placement at a hos-

pital, they can have a day


where things may feel average while others can be
quite hectic. At times like
these, they bring a better understanding on the
perspective of the environment they are in and if they
can handle it. Taking these
placements can help determine the type of career
choice that one would like
to go into, whether they
base it on the skills needed
or whatever they feel they
can handle.
I think for some jobs
it helps a student see a dif-

16104gm2

ference between school


life and some of the things
they learn at school and
how they relate to the
world, said Melanie Henry, Career Preparation and
Exploration Co-ordinator
for MCI. You learn how
to write in school but perhaps youre given a book,
it gives you some certain
ideas of writing so you can
make that connection between writing in school
and how you use writing in
a workplace.
With MCI off ering
these career opportunities,
it brings along the transitions of life for this generation of youth. They grow
from the point where they
were known as someones
child and once at a certain
age they start moving onto
the adult road. For some, it
could be exciting whereas
others find themselves
scared and unsure about
what to do because of the
many options. And so, this
is why career placements
are offered to the grade 9 to
11 students. It allows them
to see where they would
possibly like to go in the
future. Th ey can choose
the careers that interest
them for a one or two day
period and if they dont
like the career they have
chosen the fi rst day, they
can change it for the next
day.
I had one student a
number of years ago that

definitely had the marks to


go into university and that
was where she was heading and thats where everybody thought she should
go. She ended up going the
graphic design program
in Red River College and
is currently working as a
graphic designer and loves
it. She gets an opportunity
to express herself in art. It
was a great opportunity for
her to see the different career choices, stated Henry. But Ive had some students that really disliked
their jobs even though they
thought it was a job with
a great fi t for them. They
found it uncomfortable;
they had boring days, and
had moments where they
were very uncomfortable.
But its good to know that
we all dont like the same
things and I think theyre
both valuable whether you
like it or not.
Aside from certain
students having difficulties with careers they think
would be in their line of
interest, its great to know
whether the career is a
real fi t for them or not.
Though some students can
fi nd career placements to
sometimes be stressful its
great to know these opportunities can bring along
benefi ts in the fields of
community connections,
understanding the things
they do and dont enjoy,
and knowing the oppor-

tunities that are out in the
world when they become
an adult. This program
could help some with summer internships or finding the job they would like
to do in the future which
could make it a possible
necessity.
Th e program starts
in grade 9 with Take Your
Kid to Work Day, and
safety presentations. At
Minnedosa Collegiate, the
grade 10 and 11 students
get to go out and explore
careers but theyre also involved in different career
presentations throughout

the grade 10 year and attending the Career Symposium. There is also some
in-class work on resumes
and cover letters and interests in skills, post-secondary consortium and workbased workshops. It goes
from grade 9 to the year
students graduate with the
most intense years being
grade 10 and 11. And thus,
MCIs career program still
goes on to help students
gain the understanding
behind the careers of their
interests helping them figure out their plans for the
future once they graduate.

Dear Reena,
How do you remove a
yellow stain from a mat on
a vinyl floor? Julie

the best way to transport


the pasta so that it doesnt
stick together before the
party? Jeremy

Dear Julie,
Unfortunately the yellow stains may be permanent. With so many vinyl
and linoleum products on
the market, it seems that
what works on one does
not necessarily work for
another. Many people find
pouring 3% hydrogen peroxide onto the floor every
day for three days is helpful. Other people had great
success by combining one
quarter cup OxiClean with
1 gallon hot water and
pouring the solution onto
the area. Another solution
is bleach but most experience that this application
removes the floor fi nish
and shine. Lastly, mineral
spirits is another treatment
that people have told me
worked for them (test everything on an inconspicuous area first).

Dear Jeremy,
After cooking the pasta, soak it in cold water.
Drain the water and coat
with a small amount of oil.
Toss the noodles and place
them into a casserole dish,
sealable bag or slow cooker.

Dear Reena,
Kindly inform me as
to a safe and environmental friendly homemade
cleaner for my stainless
steel fridge door. There is a
streak of something spilled
down the front, which cannot be removed by soap
and water, vinegar or lemon. Barb
Dear Barbara,
For regular stainless steel
cleaning a soft cloth dampened with water is all you
need. Wipe the cloth in
the direction of the grain.
For stubborn stains, wipe
the fridge with olive oil.
Remove excess oil until it
shines.

Dear Reena,
What are some easy
ways to open a stuck jar
lid? Karrie
Dear Karrie,
Here are a few tried
and true methods for loosening a jar lid: Using the
handle of a butter knife,
tap the edge of the lid several times firmly around
the outside of the lid. Or
run the lid under hot water, while wearing gloves
grab the lid and turn. Or
push the tip of a spoon under the lip of the lid push
the spoon down. When
you hear a pop the seal is
broken, you are then able
to turn the lid. Purchase
a Boa Constrictor Strap
Wrench from a home
hardware store; makes the
job simple.

IN MEMORIAM

ELSIE VERNE WEDGEWOOD


(nee MASON)
DECEMBER 21ST, 1923 OCTOBER 21ST, 2016
Our dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed
away peacefully at the Minnedosa Personal Care Home with family
by her side. She is survived by her seven children: Murray (Diane),
Sandra (Mel), Donna (Paul), Harvey (Shannon), Anita (Dave),
Cindy (Bruce), and Robert (Lois), 15 grandchildren, 13 great
grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Elsie was predeceased by her husband of 56 years, Ernest Cecil
Wedgewood in August of 1998, and her brothers William, Clifford
and Leonard, and sister Annie, in the Portage la Prairie area where
she was born. She was the fourth of five children born to William
Lester Mason and Sarah Anne Ellen Wright and grew up on a farm in
Oakland, north of Portage.
After school and a brief time as a nurses aide in Portage, she married
Cecil in June of 1942, six months before he was sent overseas for WWII. In 1946 they started farming at Oakland and 12 years later Cecil started working as a grain buyer, moving around southern
Manitoba from Boissevain, to Oakville, and Elkhorn, arriving in Kenton in 1972.
They built a home in Kenton in 1978 and Elsie kept busy with the UCW at Kenton United
Church, singing in the choir, and assisting with music as well as participating in the barbershop
group, the Kentones. She was known to donate her pies and buns, cookies and cakes for community activities and to friends and neighbours as well. She grew a vigorous garden and lovely
flowers, and in her leisure time enjoyed sewing, reading and embroidery work.
Elsie was happiest when surrounded by family and in July 2006 hosted a reunion in Kenton
where all seven adult children and families attended. In 2012 she moved to Lilac Residence at
the Hamiota Health Care Centre and lived there until April of this year. On December 21st, 2013
family members hosted her 90th birthday celebration in the Kenton Community Hall with many
extended family and friends attending. She enjoyed visiting family in Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia, always welcomed visitors, as well as travelled overseas to visit relatives in England.
Funeral services will be held at Kenton United Church on Thursday, October 27th, at 2:00 p.m.,
with a luncheon following at Kenton Community Hall. The interment will take place in the Hillside Cemetery, Portage la Prairie, MB on Friday, October 28th, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. The family would
like to thank the helpful and caring staff at Minnedosa PCH.
Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to Minnedosa Funeral Service, minnfs@mts.net
In lieu of flowers; donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

two grandchildren Trisha Robinson and Christopher Fedorkie of
Alberta and one great granddaughter Jada Fedorkie of Alberta.

F. JAMES (JIM) INSTANCE
NOVEMBER 26TH, 1949 OCTOBER 12TH, 2016

In Memory of
NICOLE MARIE WALKER
who died 50 years ago
OCTOBER 29TH, 1966
at the age of
6 years and 5 months.
Dear God,
Forgive my silent tears
and constant wish
that she was here.
Others were taken,
yes I know
but she was mine
and I loved her so.
Mom
A note to the
hit and run driver.
It would have been a
comfort in our grief if you
had stopped
to see if you could help her
instead of letting me find my
dying child in a pool of
blood.She lived for two days.
I often wonder, is your life
happy and did you have
children?

It is with profound sadness that our family announces the


peaceful passing at Grace Hospital of Jim Instance, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and nephew. Jim was surrounded
by loved ones at his passing. Left to cherish Jims memory is his
loving wife of 40 years Dana; his beloved daughter Jacqui (Justin);
his precious grand-children, Hunter, Connor and Rowin; his sister
Betty; his uncle Art (Ialeen) and family; and his nephews Ernie
(Wendy), John and Bob (Crystal). Jim was predeceased by his parents, Ern and May; his sister Leonora; and his brother-in law Ralph.
Upon Jims request, no services will be held. In lieu of flowers, contributions to CancerCare Manitoba or The Humane Society would
be appreciated. Condolences may be sent to www.greenacresfuneral
home.com or Green Acres Funeral Home and Cemetery Box 2 Grp. 612
SS-6 Winnipeg, MB R2C 2Z3.
