and
Bonnie
Mackling moved to
Minnedosa from Winnipeg in the mid 1990’s and
found that they were struggling to find that ‘right’ cup
of coff ee. When thinking
about finding good coffee,
the Macklings’ thought
there must be other people
who felt the same way. So,
in July 2005, they opened
Chipperfield Coff ee Company. Just recently, the
Macklings’ sold their popular specialty coffee business to Nick and Tracy
Boutall.
Chipperfields’,
over
the years, has become the
centre of the community
where people came when
they had company from
other places, patrons who
came in because they
wanted a place to sit and
visit with friends or family
and even people travelling
through town who became
loyal customers who continued to make Chipperfields’ a must stop on their
travels to enjoy the atmosphere and a cup of coffee.
In 2007, Chipperfi
elds’
won the Westman Tourism
Award for customer service
and the Macklings’ along
with their staff were excited and honoured for the
nomination and the win.
“Having a good foundation
in customer service has
helped us in giving young
people of Minnedosa their
fi rst job with a good positive start to their working
careers and we are grateful
for that”, Ross stated. “Seeing our young employees
grow to be young adults
with families and it’s special to have these connections.”
A few years ago, Stuart McLean from the Vinyl
Café was coming to do a

show here in Minnedosa
and when CBC Winnipeg
asked people to call in
and tell Mr. McLean what
he should see while here,
the residents of Minnedosa overwhelmingly said
“Chipperfield’s”, and so he
did. While visiting, he did a
fair amount of writing over
a cup of coff ee. It is nice
to see that so many of our
loyal customers wanted
Stuart to experience our

coffee for himself.
“We are going to miss
our customers that have
become friends, but we
will always stay in contact
with them and not being
here (Chipperfields’) will
not change that,” stated
Ross. Deciding to sell now
was not an easy decision,
but due to being retirement age and wanting to
have time to travel and
do other things and never

knowing how much time
you have, has made the
decision for the Macklings’.
“There were a lot of
nay-sayers and people did
not think that this type of
business was appropriate
for a small town, but we
have satisfaction in knowing the acceptance that
came from the community
and that Minnedosa was
ready for the experience”,
said Mackling. “My big-

gest regret is that there are
people in town that didn’t
come in to fi nd out what
we do here, and I hope that
they will at least come to
visit Nick and Tracey to see
what a great place this is.”
As we say farewell and
Th ank-You to Ross and
Bonnie for all the good, we
welcome Nick and Tracey
Boutall.

Duane Klimack Steps up as Second PC Nominee
SUBMITTED

T

he second candidate
putting his name forward to represent the Riding Mountain constituency following MLA Leanne
Rowat is Duane Klimack
from Russell. Duane joins
Shoal Lake’s Greg Nesbitt as current candidates
in the running for Riding
Mountain’s next provincial
PC representative.
Duane
was
approached by the PC Party
of Manitoba to consider
becoming a nominee last

June and after a great deal
of contemplating the idea
he chose to take on the
challenge. His wife Carol and children, Larissa
(26), Julia (23), Sarah (16),
Laura (14) and Steven (12)
were the first supporters
he enlisted.
“Friendships
with
our current MLA, Leanne
Rowat, and former MLA,
Len Derkach, have instilled in me the idea of
becoming involved with
government and it smouldered in the back of my
mind for quite some time,”

indicated Duane. “I had
some contemplating to do
and the decision first required the support of my
family.”
Klimack was born in
Russell 48 years ago and
continues to reside on the
same yard fi ve miles east
of Russell near Silverton.
Growing up in the area,
Duane has travelled many
of roads in the constituency numerous times. “From
a young age I was involved
in the family mixed farm
and I continued to operate
the farm, diversifying from
grain and cattle to exporting timothy hay. At age 34,
I went back to University,
earning a Bachelor of Arts
and Bachelor of Education
Degree at U of W and an Industrial Arts and Teacher
Education Diploma from
Red River College allowing me to diversify completely out of farming into
a teaching career.” Duane
has spent the past 11 years
teaching Woodworking,
Metalworking, Welding,
Electronics and Power Mechanics to high school students in Park West School

Division.
With his family now
more independent and
his past experiences and
relationships, Duane feels
the timing is right and has
the confi dence to seek a
position in government.
“Recently, I have been
spending time travelling
in the constituency and
meeting people in many
of the towns and communities asking for support
and sharing ideas and opportunities for this riding,”
stated Duane. “I feel that
there is a certain amount of
apathy and general disillusionment with many people regarding government
and I feel that this needs to
change. I am encouraging
all constituents to become
involved and do their part
to ensure that our government is responsible and
represents the best interest
of all Manitobans.”
Key aspects of responsible government, which
Duane feels are important
include open communication between all involved,
as well as honesty and
integrity, and a common

Over the past several months, Duane has
been working with the PC
party attending functions
and meetings and getting
acquainted with current
MLA’s as well as with the
PC leader Brian Pallister.
“Brian is a very passionate
leader with a vision for the

and was part of the “policy

which will help guide the
PC party into the future.

of hand-crafted, rustic interior with re-surfacing of
tables and chairs to make
it inviting to loyal and new
customers. The Boutall’s
are hoping for a max of
one month to be closed

at Rockin’ the Fields and
getting to know the customers.
“We are really excited
to take over a very well established and run business
and hope to keep up to
the already set standards”,
stated Nick. “Stay tuned for
any new announcements
and changes.”

and Tracey, enjoy a coffee
and the atmosphere, you

Louis Riel Day – February 16th
By ASHLEY HANKS

O

n Monday, February
16th, while people in
other Canadian provinces
are celebrating Family
Day, Manitobans will celebrate Louis Riel Day. This
special day was designated
to commemorate his life
and legacy as a politician
who represented the Métis
people’s interests.
Louis Riel was a
founder of the province
of Manitoba and a political and spiritual leader of

the Métis people of the Canadian prairies. He led
two resistance movements
against the Canadian
government and its fi rst
post-Confederation Prime
Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald. Riel sought to preserve Métis rights and culture as their homelands in
the Northwest came progressively under the Canadian sphere of influence.
He is regarded by many
today as a Canadian folk
hero.
Being a leader of the

Métis Nation and the people of the Northwest and in
1896 was elected Secretary
of the Métis National Committee in the Red River Settlement. In February 1870,
he was elected President
of the Provisional Government for Rupertsland
(included all of Manitoba,
most of Saskatchewan,
southern Alberta, southern
Nunavut, northern parts of
Ontario and Quebec, as
well as parts of Minnesota
and North Dakota and very
small parts of Montana

and South Dakota and the
Northwest Territory.
Th e Métis List of
Rights was negotiated with
Canada and as a result, on
May 12th, 1870, the Province of Manitoba entered
into Confederation and in
July 1870, The Manitoba
Act was proclaimed and
the Province of Manitoba
became the fifth province
to enter into the Canadian
Confederation.
Minnedosa itself has
some direct attachment
to the Riel Rebellion, as

it states in history books
and even a member of the
early Minnedosa Tribune
staff was a part of it all. The
Tribune’s second Publisher, Dave Cannon wrote in
the April 10th, 1885 edition
that “the Riel Rebellion requiring the services of one
half of our staff for its suppression, we are, unavoidably, late this week.” The
half staff in question was
Harry Gill Cuttle, who had
also been with The Tribune
since the beginning. In
Cuttle, The Tribune had a

A Yearbook is a Valuable Treasure
By DARRYL HOLYK

Town...

L

ast week’s front page story regarding the MCI
yearbook committee, has left me thinking how
sad it is that we live in a time where digital technology is negatively affecting traditional printed products. This is not just a local problem – there are stories from all over North America about dwindling
interest in school yearbooks and many schools having to discontinue publishing traditional yearbooks.
Currently, social media fads such as Facebook,
Twitter, Instagram are the popular way to view photos and keep in touch with friends. With that kind
of instant accessibility, it’s easy to understand why
many of today’s students simply do not see the need
for a paper copy of a yearbook. All of their friends,
photos, videos and memories are right at the tip of
their finger. This method of sharing may work just
fine for the short term but where are those photos,
videos and high school memories going to be in five,
ten, twenty or more years? There is no guarantee
they will still be accessible through social media. I
know right now it is hard to imagine that facebook
could ever become obsolete but it’s a very real possibility. This is where the true value and importance
of the traditional printed yearbook comes into play.
Although it is apparently being viewed by some as
an old fashioned dinosaur, a printed yearbook is a
permanent record of high school happenings that
will last for decades. I have lost count of the times
I have reached for one of my MCI yearbooks from

Groundhog Predicts...

Well our silly old groundhog, Manitoba Merv, has
predicted that we will experience another six weeks
of winter before spring arrives. What a prediction as
in six weeks we will see the arrival of the offi cial first
day of Spring!

As many of our hockey teams are nearing the fi

the mid 1990’s to look up a school mate or just to
reminisce about my high school days. The pictures
and information have often brought back great
memories of happenings I no longer frequently think
about. The handwritten messages on the inside cover of my yearbooks, from friends and teachers, some
who have passed away and are no longer here with
us, are priceless and irreplaceable. You don’t get that
same kind or nostalgia from a digital post.
Looking back to my grade nine year at MCI, I did
not fully understand the true importance or value a
yearbook held. During my fi rst year of high school I
did not bother to order a yearbook, because I simply
thought, “What for? Who cares?” However, once the
fi nished product arrived and I saw my friend’s yearbook, I was kicking myself for my earlier poor judgement. Fortunately, at the time, you could sign up to be
one of the lucky students to be given the opportunity
of purchasing one of the extra copies of the yearbook.
Today, I thank my lucky stars that I was fortunate
enough to end up with my own copy of the 1994 MCI
yearbook. For the next three years, I made sure to order a yearbook as soon as the ordering process began.
I urge all students to buy your school yearbooks. They are one of the most valuable pieces of
history you will have from your school days. It may
not seem important right at this moment in time but
don’t make a mistake you will come to regret as you
move forward in life and realize that the connections
and friendships you thought would last forever have
changed and scattered.

Don’t Help Thieves Steal Your Vehicle
MPI Release

H

ow do you think most
thieves steal a car? It’s
not by smashing a window
or covertly jimmying the
lock. Th ieves don’t even
need to hotwire the ignition. These days, most vehicles are stolen with their
own keys. 
“For the three-month
period from December 2013
to February 2014, there were
269 thefts involving keys,”
said MaryAnn Kempe, vicepresident, Business Development and Communications and chief product
officer, Manitoba Public
Insurance. “Our analysis
showed that 162 of these
thefts, 60 per cent involved
keys left in the ignition or
somewhere within the vehicle.”
Having your vehicle
stolen is inconvenient and

can be costly. You could
become stranded and lose
any personal items you
had in the vehicle. Plus,
you’ll have to find alternate
transportation and might
have to pay your deductible. That’s the economic
cost. There’s also a human
cost. A stolen vehicle can
be compared to a fourwheeled bullet, there’s no
predicting where it will go
or who it may injure in its
path.
Manitoba roadways
are safer when there are
fewer stolen vehicles on
them.
Since 2007, vehicles
deemed to be ‘most-atrisk’ and either registered
in Winnipeg, used to
commute into Winnipeg,
brought into Manitoba for
the first time or involved in
a theft or attempted theft
have had to be equipped

with an approved vehicle
immobilizer.
Approved
immobilizers are designed
to prevent vehicles from
being operated without
vehicle keys and/or immobilizer key fobs. However,
these devices cannot protect vehicles from being
stolen if the vehicle ignition is left running or the
keys are not secured.
“We see a definite trend
that when the weather turns
cold, people are more likely
to leave their car running
unattended with keys in the
ignition,” noted Kempe.
Not only does this
make your vehicle a target for theft, but excessive
idling is costly in terms of
fuel consumption and is
environmentally unfriendly. Even during extreme
cold temperatures, a vehicle’s engine only needs
a few minutes to warm up.

To reduce warm-up time,
plug in your vehicle when
it’s colder than -18C.
“Auto theft is a crime of
opportunity,” said Kempe.
“By eliminating the opportunity, you eliminate the
crime.”
Keep these tips in
mind to safeguard your vehicle:
Always keep your vehicle locked.
Don’t leave your vehicle running unattended.
Don’t keep your keys
anywhere inside your vehicle.
Be careful with your
keys to avoid losing them
or having them stolen.
Don’t leave any packages, coins or other valuables in plain view. If you
must keep valuables in
your vehicle, lock all items
in the trunk.

Reminising – Evelyn and Tom Delgaty
By DONNA BROWN.

B

ack around 1970,
Edna Pelts and I were
cub leaders for a bunch
of little boys. Near school
end we decided we would
take them camping. So,
I got my Dad’s truck and
we loaded all the camping
gear etc. that we needed.
We decided to camp near
the river down from Evelyn and Tom Delgaty’s
farm. Everything was great
and we were looking forward to having a delicious
breakfast next morning.
During the night a
terrible storm came up.
Lightning, thunder and
heavy rain. We finally decided we had to get out of
there. It was pitch dark.
We loaded all the kids

up and started back up
the hill. Well, the truck
couldn’t get up the hill; it
kept sliding as it was only
a cow path back then.
What to do.
Finally we decided we
would all walk to Evelyn
and Tom’s, call some of
the parents to come and
get the kids. It was a long
walk for all of the kids but
we thought it best to stick
together. When we got to
the Delgaty’s, we asked to
use their phone. No way

We all had to stay with

out of their wet clothes

Ray Piche – Liberal Candidate for Member of Parliament

Photo submitted

By ASHLEY HANKS

T

he Liberal candidate
for Member of Parliament in the Dauphin-Swan
River-Neepawa
Federal
Riding is Mr. Ray Piche. Piche grew up in Montreal,
having French as his first
language, which is a great
asset for him in his upcoming adventure, and always
knew that he wanted to
do something that would
make a difference. The
RCMP or the OP seemed to
be the best choice and he

joined the RCMP at the age
of 21. In 1986, was posted
to Emerson, MB with the
RCMP.
While part of the
RCMP in Emerson, Ray
was elected as a Municipal
Councillor for the Town of
Emerson in 1998. At that
time, there was no policy
stating you could not hold
an elected position while
being an RCMP officer.
In 1999, a policy change
passed and as a result,
Ray was forced to resign in
April of the same year.
Piche was then posted in a few places around
Manitoba
including
Brandon, and did highway patrol for the Riding
Mountain National Park
in the summer of 2000
and Minnedosa area for
the summer of 2002, Pukatawagan and his last
post in Minnedosa in 2005.
Ray retired in 2006 from
Minnedosa after his last
big arrest in the Minnedosa United Church arson.
Piche’s next adventure
was to get into a few busi-

nomics and veterans affairs as just two things that
he is most interested in.
“I don’t want to be a
robotic arm, I want to be
the voice and for them to
come to me”, stated Piche.
“People are looking for
change and to have common ground, I want to be
that change, Canada deserves positive change.”
Piche urges everyone
of every age to get out and
vote, to make the decision

that it is important, and
for those young adults that
have never voted “Voting is
a democratic right, a right
that we should not take
lightly”, Ray said.
Piche was in Minnedosa on January 24th for a
round table discussion
that went very well and
there will be more of these
in the next coming months
with one in Neepawa later
this month.

Cadurcis Church Still Going Strong
By ASHLEY HANKS

A

lovely country church
with colourful walls
adorning scripture, a
wooden cross, a mural
behind the preachers’
podium, small wooden
pews and an older piano
in the corner, this is what
you will fi nd at Cadurcis
Church located west of

Minnedosa at the corner
of PR #270 and PR# 355.
Being one of only
two country churches in
Southwestern Manitoba
that still continue to have
regular Sunday services
every week, Cadurcis is a
family community of people with a congregation
made up of all ages.
The fi rst Sunday of

Cadurcis Churches
Through The Years

The first Cadurcis Church was a log
structure built in 1883 at a cost of $300.
It was deemed unsafe for use after the walls
shifted during a windstorm in 1903.

The second church was built in 1904
and served the district until 1951 when
a fire destroyed the building.

every month is their Community Sunday where
they have a pot-luck lunch
and everyone gathers to
eat and have fellowship
together after the service. The church also has
a number of other events
throughout the year such
as diff erent music services, an old fashioned
Christmas Concert, a fall
and spring supper at Basswood Hall where the gentlemen do all the cooking
for the spring supper, and
in June, a church picnic
before they close for the
summer months.
Even though it is a
small country church, it
still has its modern elements with a laptop and
projector for sermon
notes and readings, microphones for singing and
preaching and a basement
with a small corner kitchen and room to seat many
for fellowship times.
Minister Elgin Hall
believes that no matter the
size of the congregation,
there should always be a
place for a Sunday service.
Being a farming community, there may be other
commitments such as
hockey or calving season,
which prevents some from
attending every week, but
that does not stop that
community feel you get

when entering the doors
of this beautiful church.
Being able to join the
congregation this past
Sunday, I saw firsthand
how interactive and family oriented Cadurcis
Church can be. Minister
Hall welcomed me at the
door making me feel as
though I had belonged
to the church forever.
The service was amazing,
everyone was involved
with singing and speaking as part of the sermon,
and there was a delightful sing-along with one of
the church families, the
Martin’s, with a rendition
of The Beatles “It’s Only
Love”.
After speaking with
some of the congregation
during the brunch, I got
a feeling of family and a
sense of community between everyone. Some
members have come
from bigger churches and
feel that there is a big difference between a big
church and a small country church with the community feel, being more
involved and feeling a part
of the congregation, and
not just another person in
a pew. “The Community
formed around the church
is more than the ministry
in the church”, stated Minister Hall.

Elgin Hall serves as the current
Minister at Cadurcis Church. Hall is pictured
above during last Sunday’s service.

Minnedosa
ended
their season on Sunday,
February 1st with a game
against Neepawa who they
had faced off with for the
fi rst game on their schedule back in October. A very
close game as both goalies
shut out their opponents
for the first two periods despite some good chances
from both sides. One shut
out was denied after more

than 44 minutes of play
as Minnedosa celebrated
the fi rst goal of the game
with just under six minutes left to play. With lots
of time left on the clock
Neepawa pushed hard to
tie the game and when a
late penalty to The Bombers came at the 1:45 mark
they pulled their goalie
giving them a six on four
advantage.
After some
good pressure Minnedosa
was able to find the empty

conditions were not ideal, the trail held up and all in attendance from young to old enjoyed their excursion.
Final numbers have not been fi nalized  but approximately $750 is to be expected and the proceeds will go to Cancer Care Manitoba on behalf of Dave Stratton, a long time club member and cancer patient.

Tips For Removing Odours From Vehicles
dust can’t fl y.

Solutions and
Substitutions
By

REENA NERBAS
Dear Reena,
We moved into a new
home eight years ago
which has a heat pump.
I am not sure if the pump
causes constant dust, but
it is driving me crazy! It
doesn’t seem to matter
how many times I dust,
or what I use, because as
soon as I turn around, it
has landed back on all of
the furniture. Do you have
a solution? Helen
Dear Helen,
If the heat pump is
working to capacity, this
shouldn’t be the culprit
because one of the jobs of
a heat pump is to purify
the air. Sometimes excessive dust is a result of the
location of your home and

completely out of your
control. Other possible
causes: Plugged dryer
vent, check the back of the
dryer as well as the front
lint trap. Is your dryer
vented to the outside? The
attic may not be properly
sealed. Unsealed air leaks,
duct air leaks (pay special
attention to sealing the
return duct). Dust leaking
out of vacuum cleaner bag
or an inefficient vacuum.
Dust caused by wood stove
or wood fireplace. If none
of these factors apply to
you, call a professional air
specialist to analyze your
home. Here is a quick tip
to reduce some of the dust
before you clean, spray
the air with water before
you vacuum, because wet

Hi Reena,
We have a deck made
out of Trex boards, and
while my husband was
barbecuing, some food
landed onto the deck. I
removed the stain, and
now notice that the spot
is a lighter color than the
rest of the boards. What
can I use to repair this? I
was thinking of buying a
small can of deck stain in
an appropriate colour and
blending it in, but I don’t
know if that’s a good idea
or not. Please help! Lori
Dear Lori,
I contacted the manufacturer with your query.
As I am not sure how old
the light stain is; the representative suggested the
lighter spot may take 1216 weeks to blend with the
deck. If the stain remains,
they suggest that you use a
deck brightener that contains Oxalic Acid, in order
to lighten the rest of the
deck so the spot will blend.

This is a better option than
paint or stain which will
increase future deck maintenance.

Re: Butter stored in fridge
too hard; looking for substitutes
Dear Reena,
For many years there
has been a solution “out
there” to the problem of
hard un-spreadable butter. It’s known as “better
butter”. Soften a pound
of butter overnight in a
large bowl. The next day,
blend your butter until it is
creamy. Into a large measuring cup, pour your favourite cooking oil to the
one and a half cup line.
Slowly add the oil into the
butter until you have a
fairly liquid product, you
may want to experiment
to find the consistency you
prefer (you can add a little
additional salt). You will

CARD OF THANKS
I would like to take this
opportunity to thank the
landowners,
community
members and businesses,
club members and their
families for their support
in providing a scenic trail,
equipment, registration site,
snowmobile shacks, prizes,
volunteer work and participation in the recent Valley Snowhawks Derby. Without you
we couldn’t pull it off. Snowmobiling is a fun and family
oriented recreational sport
and the club is happy to provide an annual event for all
to get outdoors, exercise and
raise money to needy causes.
Thanks, Solange LaBelle.

tion of lower pricing and Below are a few sugges-

T

tions that may help reduce
the effects of excess moisture and the incidence and
severity of root rot.
Field Selection and
Early Seeding – Choose a
well drained field that can
be seeded early. Early establishment allows for a
more mature plant which
is better able to tolerate
the heavier rain events that
typically occur in late May
and June. Early seeding
also allows for flowering
during the cooler late June
and early July time period
avoiding the disease and
insect issues associated
with warmer mid summer
temperatures .
Rotation – Field peas
need a minimum four to
fi ve year break between
pea crops and a two to
three year break from a
wheat crop depending on
the severity of fusarium
head blight in the wheat
crop. Th e fusarium species that causes fusarium
head blight in wheat is also
partially responsible for
causing the root rot which

affects fi eld peas. Suitable
stubble for seeding field
peas includes oats, barley,
flax and canola stubble. In
the case of canola stubble
one needs to ensure phosphate levels are more than
adequate since canola is a
high phosphate user and
is a non-mycorrhizal crop.
The success in canola stubble is due to a drier soil
profile which is better able
to tolerate excess moisture.
One also needs to be cognisant of herbicide residues.
Seedling vigor, Seed
treatment and Inoculation – Choose seed with
high germination and vigour and use a seed treatment. Plants are most susceptible to initial fusarium
infection during germination. Dual inoculation
is highly recommended
using both a seed applied
and granular inoculants. A
strong healthy plant will be
your best defense in fighting off mid-summer stresses such as excess moisture.
Early weed control

– Early seeding will allow
for earlier weed control
which will typically avoid
applications during periods of excess moisture. The
combined stress of excess
moisture and weed control
is what in many instances
allows the root rot complex
to overtake the plant.
Consider a fungicide
for control of Mycosphaerella blight which will also
help reduce lodging and
improve harvestability.
Desiccation and Harvest – Desiccation allows
for more timely and uni

form dry down of plants
and facilitates straight cutting. Commence harvest
once moisture drops below 18-20% to reduce splits
and aerate.
Ultimately the key to
a successful pea crop is a
growing season that has
drier bias where root rot
issues are kept to a minimum. Given our surplus
soil moisture reserves from
last fall a dry spring would
be welcome by most planning on including field
peas in their cropping
plans this spring.
