I believe in lifelong learning, therefore, I have taken advantage of many other educational opportunities along the way. I have always been a strong supporter of community and economic development, and have several years of commitment on boards and committees, locally and provincially. My family and I value volunteerism, and are always ready to contribute to the well-being and development of our area. I am looking forward to a second term on Council, We

Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin will be in Nipawin on March 10th and 11th during a roadshow making its way through Saskatchewan. You can bring your gold, silver & coins to the Evergreen Centre between 10am and 6pm each day. No appointment is required. Barry Dick is a precious metals buyer and President of Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin. Ursa Major hails from Richmond, BC but Dick has his roots in WinklerMB. Ursa Major has the unique advantage of dealing direct with a smelter said Dick. That allows us to cut out one or even two middlemen. Ursa Major purchases gold and silver from other gold buyers, pawn shops, jewellers and jewellery makers as well as from the general public. Recent price increases of precious metals have created lots of gold buyers including mail in companies. Many of those buyers offer pennies on the dollar to unsuspecting customers and are limited to what they buy, choosing to ignore silver and coins and only purchase gold. Better Business Bureau complaints about

mail in gold companies are extremely high, but it is hard to regulate. My advice is that you do NOT mail your precious metals to anyone you havent met or spoken with at length says Dick. Ursa Major analyzes your gold, silver and coins while you watch, with the process explained to you in detail. Any coins with numismatic value will be set aside from those with a melt value. Silver items such as jewellery, flatware and serving trays will be analyzed for hallmark identification. Items thought to contain gold will also be analyzed for hallmarks, and then confirmed using precise testing that is done while you watch. Then a cash offer is made and you decide to sell or not. Dick took out his first gold claim when he turned 16 in the 1970s and has been involved with precious metals ever since. An ardent gold panner, he was a regular at the world championship gold panning competition with a personal best of 3rd place in 1984. Now he concentrates on building the wholesale business with jewellers and brokers while taking the road-

show out one or two times a month across Western Canada. People bring in all kinds of interesting items, but for the most part it is a broken or old chain, unloved jewelry, a single earring, and out of fashion items like charm bracelets. We also accept dental gold but it should be clean. These days I see more and more sterling silver flatware sets, but before you bring those in please make sure it says Sterling on the handles. There is a lot of silver plated flatware that we cant buy due to the low silver content says Dick. Another valuable item is coins with silver content. Dimes, Quarters, Half Dollars and Dollars from Canada and America can be sorted and the silver content determined in no time at all. People are encouraged to bring in any and all coins for assessment. Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin will be at the Evergreen Centre in Nipawin on Sunday March 10th and Monday March 11thh from 10am to 6pm. No appointment necessary.

If we work together with our neighboring villages, towns and rural municipalities we will all reap the rewards or each others growth and economic success.

Nipawin home. In 2010 I retired after a 32 year career as a teacher and school principal.

My other community involvement includes: Vice President and Director for the Nipawin Oasis Centre, board member for Nipawin Habitat for Humanity, Nipawin Citizens on Patrol, a member of the Nipawin Historical Society and a Nipawin Hawks fan and volunteer. I found my first term as a Councillor for the Town of Nipawin very challenging and rewarding. I am looking forward to my continued involvement in serving the community for the next four year term.
