Making the Grade

If you’re in the driver’s chair of an M.D. Provost No. 52 grader this is the view (top) you’d get while clearing snow at the airport—or on other rural roads. The model 872 GP 43-164 has eight speeds, uses a six-wheel-drive configuration and has 300 horsepower available. Photo above meanwhile shows a Town of Provost grader after a recent snowfall with Keith Heintz at the controls as seen via a vehicle’s mirror. ©Provost News Photos.

Protected Area a Refuge for
Special Plant, Animal Life
A sign by a graveled road in the Suffern Lake (Sask.) area west of Alberta’s Dilberry Lake and Chauvin, Alta. and south of Marsden, Sask. warns people of an environmentally sensitive region called the Manitou Sand Hills (above) Integrated Resource Management Plan Area. According to a Saskatchewan publication called The Diverse Landscapes of the Manitou Sand Hills presented by the Manitou Sand Hills Standing Committee (April 2014): a major feature of the area is the fine sands formed into stabilized and un-stabilized dunes in the strongly rolling topography. These dunes are up to 18 meters high and 0.8 km long, and lie in east-west rows. Several unusual plants are associated with these active dunes. Meanwhile the south shore of Manitou Lake (not shown) contains some “very unusual stromatolite-like formations”. Stromatolites are layered accretionary structures formed in shallow water by the trapping, binding, and cementation of sedimentary grains by biofilms of microorganisms. “Globally, they provide some of the most ancient records of life on Earth by fossil remains which date back to more than 3.5 billion years. Formations occur widely in the fossil record of the Precambrian, but are rare today.” The Manitou Sand Hills, which comprises 105,000 acres of Crown grazing land near the Alberta border is one of the largest areas of its kind remaining in Saskatchewan. ©Provost News Photo.
