A perch makes it easier for predator species to access the young in the nest. •Location of one’s birdhouse depends on which species one wishes to attract; some prefer a wooded or shady area while others prefer an open grassy area. Be sure to do some research on this topic. •The roof is not flush with the walls so that there is some necessary ventilation

for the birds. Two screws have been supplied to assist in mounting the birdhouse. •Two screws have been supplied for recipients to mount the birdhouse.

Pfliger discussed topics of interest to most area wildlife enthusiasts; trespassing bylaws and two invasive species, zebra

mussels and Prussian carp. He said Prussian carp is one of the newer threats facing wildlife habitat. “It’s an aggressive and prolific breeding species of fish that originates in Northern Europe,” said Pfliger. “It’s in some of our native waters such as Lake Diefenbaker, and is spotted occasionally in the South Saskatchewan River system.

in a body of water called Stockwell Lake, located southwest of Outlook.” He said Prussian carp are somewhat similar to the common goldfish; mainly silver in colour but they can have golden hues. They average about five to six pounds and around a foot in length. “The shocking part is that males are not needed for the reproduction of this species,” explained Pfliger. “The females clone themselves over and over again. This process requires stolen sperm from other species found floating around in rivers and lakes. “This allows Prussian carp to reproduce in large numbers. Our game fish cannot compete with these fish because of how quickly they over-populate the water bodies. “It is believed that the fish may have been released by unwitting pet owners from backyard ponds.” Pfliger encourages anyone who has seen or caught Prussian carp to phone the 1-800-TIPS line or email Sask Environment to report them, and to not release 19043NN0

He said all Prussian carp should be humanely destroyed. Pfliger said zebra mussels, another invasive species, are probably better known to most area wildlife enthusiasts, mainly due to all the damage they can do to water bodies, beaches and power plants. “They are on our doorstep on the Manitoba and U.S. borders. So what can we do about them?” he asked. “We can clean and dry watercraft and remove the drain plug during transportation. Be aware of any water bodies or locations that may have mussels. Stop at all check stations and have your boat inspected.” Pfliger said 2,900 watercraft inspections were done in 2018, 830 needed detailed inspections, 50 went through decontamination and five were found to be contaminated. He brought six monitoring kits with him which he made available to those in attendance. “All you have to do is, after the ice is off the lake, install one of these monitoring systems on a dock,” said Continued on Page 3

New trespass legislation raises questions

Bake sale at Canora’s Ukrainian Catholic Hall the place to be for Easter treats The Easter bake sale and tea at the Ukrainian Catholic Hall was a popular destination for many Canora residents on April 11. A wide variety of items were available on a first-come, first served basis at the event, sponsored by the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League, Canora branch. Among the items on the tables were: pies, donuts, tarts, rice, pickled eggs, snickerdoodles, buns, borsch, bread, horseradish, clam chowder, paska, babas, cabbage rolls, baked perogies, nalysnyky, scuffles and an assortment of baked squares and cookies. Bottom photo, left, Donna Kitzan, left, and Angelina Chupa were two of the early shoppers who got their choice of the items on the tables.

Continued from Page 2 Pfliger. “Check it once a month for signs of mussels, and if you see any, report it to the tip line. All instructions are included along with the phone numbers in the kit. “The idea behind the kits is to install one kit per water body, covering as many lakes as possible.” Pfliger’s final topic of discussion was the new trespass legislation. “I had the opportunity to be at an APAS (Agriculture Producers Association of Saskatchewan) meeting where we had a very in depth discussion of the new act,” he said. “After discussing their concerns, I can understand why they are in support of this legislation. “They brought forth issues such as: rural crime, property and crop damage, biosecurity issues with people crossing their lands on foot, in trucks and on ATVs, spreading seeds of invasive weeds and pathogens such as clubroot. Many of them simply wanted to know who is on their land. “Some of the more pressing points were: people shooting too near farm houses or animals, trucks rutting up their fields by driving when it was too wet and ATVs or snowmobiles

driving across winter wheat fields and damaging the crops.” Pfliger said he is not arguing for or against the legislation, but rather bringing forward questions that need to be asked of the government, landowners, hunters and people who participate in other outdoor activities, including: • Do we have enough RCMP and Conservation Officers to enforce the new trespass legislation and do they have enough time with their limited manpower? • Can we really control/ prevent ATVs and snowmobiles from going across farmland? • Trespassing is a misdemeanor with a maximum $5,000 fine. Will this really stop rural crime? • Is the act going to affect the number of people who hunt and use the outdoors for their enjoyment? • More landowners have cell phones instead of land lines. Many farms are numbered companies or have foreign land owners. How does one contact them? • Are landowners prepared to take more calls at their door or on their phone to grant access? • Is there going to be a landowner registry? Is it going to be mandatory for

landowners to join? How long is it going to take to develop a smooth and efficient operating registry? • What pressure will limited access have on the Northern Forest and Wildlife Lands and what consequences will that have? Pfliger said as a hunter and outdoorsman, he is concerned that the new legislation will cause frustration and possibly reduce the number of hunters and people in the field. “Fewer people in the field means fewer eyes and ears to report wildlife violations and criminal activity,” he said. “Hunting brings in $300 million a year to the

province and if we lose hunters, we lose revenue.” Pfliger said he would like to see the government slow down and take a serious look at all the problems and issues the new legislation presents to all concerned stakeholders; landowners, hunters, outdoors people and Indigenous people, and have an honest, open discussion with the parties involved before implementing the Trespass Act. “What it basically comes down to is all the stakeholders coming together with the government to address their questions and concerns so they can come up with an agreeable conclusion. Then implement the Act,” he concluded.

Moe must offer better alternative New Democrat Opposition leader Ryan Meili should have attended the Rally Against the Carbon Tax protest. If for no other reason, he should have been there for the politically strategic reason of demonstrating that he is willing to listen to the concerns of those who he purports to want to lead. Maybe there weren’t many votes to be gained by the NDP leader at that event, but he surely has lost even more votes in rural Saskatchewan by not going. It is now hugely problematic for Meili to have defined the event as a “yellow vest” rally before it even happened and then to have to admit later that organizer Jason LeBlanc and others did a pretty good job of keeping out the unwanted yellow vest element. Moreover, Meili apologists who insist their NDP leader shouldn’t have went to the rally because it was a thinly veiled political event seem to be missing a couple important points. While the crowd was solidly Sask. Party/Conservative supporters, it would have been helpful for Meili to be there to say he doesn’t support this particular federal carbon tax, either. That Meili chose not to go after suggesting this was a yellow vest event and that yellow vesters are racist and antiimmigrant was problematic enough. To not go and to then allow Premier Scott Moe the political opportunity to tell the crowd why you’re not there is dumb politics. But there is another very different reason why Meili

Murray Mandryk is a political columnist with the Leader-Post

should have been there. Meili, or someone else, needs to challenge Moe on what the Sask. Party government intends to do about reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This is something that many people in this province also would prefer the Premier ignore. There are those who range from downright deniers that the climate is changing to those who suggest that there is change and it is a totally a natural occurrence, to those who suggest that whatever change is happening has little to do human activity and that more carbon dioxide is actually good thing. Those who suggest any of the above are ignoring the best science available, science supported by agencies like NASA that tells us there is a global warming threat, and that threatening aspect is a result of human activity. Interestingly, this is also the position of Prairie Resilience,

the provincial government’s “made-in-Saskatchewan response” to the carbon tax. It commits to “output-based performance standards” that is also a carbon price model to be applied to Saskatchewan’s heaviest emitters. Yet the most Moe would say about the GHG/global warming is the following: “In Saskatchewan, we accept that climate change is happening and we even accept that humans are contributing to that,” Moe told the 1,000 protestors that were part of 700-truck convey. “What we don’t accept is that a carbon tax is in any way an effective way to actually deal with that.” As has been stated in this space before, there is every reason to suspect that this federal carbon tax will not work. But what then, is the alternative that the province is offering? It’s all well and good for Moe to suggest that “farmers are some of the strongest environmentalists in the world” or that we aren’t getting enough credit for carbon sinks and zero tillage, and $1.6 billion invested in SaskPower’s carbon capture and storage. But the facts remain that GHGs are still increasing in Saskatchewan and GHGs are a worldwide problem. We can all say this doesn’t matter because Saskatchewan, and even Canada, represents a small fraction of the world problem when it comes to GHG emissions. But what this province can’t say is that it’s doing its part. And as a leader, Moe has to commit to doing our part.

Father Ted provides plenty of laughs for appreciative Buchanan audience The laughs were coming all night long during the Buchanan Black Box Players (BBBP) dinner theatre stage production of Father Ted , held at the Buchanan Community Centre on April 11 to 13. Based on the British comedy series of the same n a m e , F a t h e r Te d w a s written by Buchanan’s and BBBP’s own Betty Tomilin, with permission from Hat Trick Productions in London, England. Tomilin and Lorna Ratushniak were the directors. The synopsis explains some of the appeal of Father Ted. “The play follows the antics and escapades of Father Ted Crilly (Cal Tomilin), Father Dougal McGuire ( S t e v e n Wy o n z e k ) a n d Father Jack Hackett (Bob Edwards), along with their long suffering but cheerful housekeeper, Mrs. Doyle (Pat Leung.) Early on, the audience learned that the three priests had been exiled to Craggy

Island, a remote location off Ireland’s west coast, for various past incidents and misdeeds. Mrs. Doyle cheerfully went about her duties as housekeeper, including always offering everyone tea, no matter how vigorously they declined. The Craggy Island parish was visited by four monks (Jacob Danyluk, Steve Merriam, Malcolm Broughton and Nick Woloschuk) who “should be quiet,” according to Father Ted. But the monks were only too willing to comment that “this is such a cheerless, depressing place. How do you cope with the desperate sense of hopelessness?” While listening to a local radio show, the priests heard about an air band competition coming up to raise money for a worthy cause. The announcement came from radio personality Donny Desmond (Darryl Goosen), a “no-talent hack” according to Father Ted. The audience then met

A group of monks (from left: Malcolm Broughton, Steve Merriam, Nick Woloschuk and Jacob Danyluk) visited Mrs. Doyle, the housekeeper (Pat Leung), Father Ted (Cal Tomilin) and Father Dougal (Steven Wyonzek, seated) and asked them, “How do you cope with the desperate sense of hopelessness?”

Father Dick Byrne (Andrew Hoffman), Father Patrick (Brody Harrison), Father Jasper (Jacob Danyluk) and Mrs. Finnegan (Val E d w a r d s ) , t h e i r h o u s ekeeper. This trio of priests had been exiled to nearby Rugged Island, and were essentially a mirror image of the members of the Craggy Island parish. Father Patrick and Father Jasper had some time on their hands and expressed a desire to be exotic dancers, dancing in “steamy, exotic places,” until father Dick explained what is really involved in exotic dancing. Of course, Father Ted and Father Dick were bitter rivals, and constantly tried to best each other in any situation. They agreed on a wager for the upcoming air band competition. The one who raised the least amount of money would have to give the much despised Bishop Leonard Brennan (Steve Merriam) a “good kick up the arse.”

The Buchanan Black Box Players dinner theatre stage production of Father Ted was held at the Buchanan Community Centre on April 11 to 13. Those involved in the production, from left, were: (back row) Malcolm Broughton, Marie Kupchinski, Sharon Murray, Joanne Sadler, Erica Leung, Tammy Senholt, Pat Leung, Cal Tomilin, Steve Wyonzek, Bob Edwards, Nick Woloschuk, Steve Merriam and Betty Tomilin, and (front) Lorna Ratushniak, Cole Simon, Graeme Wilgosh, Val Edwards.

From left, Father Ted Crilly, (Cal Tomilin) and Father Dougal McGuire (Steven Wyonzek) found themselves often disturbed at all hours after being exiled, along with Father Frank Hackett (Bob Edwards) to Craggy Island for various past incidents and misdeeds.

As Father Jack Hackett (Bob Edwards) rocked out to Meatloaf’s Paradise by the Dashboard Lights, Bishop Leonard Brennan (Steve Merriam) entered just in time for the lyrics “Stop right there.”

Easter and being born to eternal life “God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost but may have eternal life” (John 3:16.) On Holy Saturday we rejoice, not just because it is the night the heavens are opened to us, but because it is the night we too can die. In baptism we die to the old life of sin and accept the love of Jesus. In Christ’s tomb mankind is transformed and born again into life that is forever. Rejoice and believe the Good News! Let me share a true story about this rebirth into life as related by Annabelle Mosely. “My grandmother taught me many lessons during her life, and one last precious one right as she passed away.” Moseley continued, “I was blessed to be holding her right hand as she passed, from earthly life to eternal life. As I watched her, I thought of the phrase, ‘born to eternal life.’” Mosely explained, “The process of dying is a kind of labour, akin to birthing a new life. Something about the way she breathed that last hour; I can best liken it to being in labour. There are moments you’d swear you were dying; such is the pain the body feels as it assists in giving new life.

by Ken Rolheiser

www.kenrolheiser.com

“A mother must focus her breathing and ride the labour. Each time I’ve given birth, I’ve been astounded at how it feels like a veil between heaven and earth that opens above me, as though God and the entire communion of saints is very near,” Mosley said. Her grandmother always said: “You’re never closer to God than when you’re giving birth. When I held the hand and knelt at the side of this woman who had herself given birth six times, I recognized that she was again very close to God, as her breathing and extreme focus was like that of one in labour while God prepared to birth her into eternal life.”

“As I watched her die, I was privileged not only to witness her faith, but to learn that death is a kind of labour, the kind that assists in bringing forth new life in God. My grandmother realized that she had to enter the labour of death in order to reach that new life,” Mosley concluded, (Aleteia, March 22, 2019.) Father Brendan McGuire shared a moment when he prayed with a dying man: “Go to meet your Maker; go to meet your Lord in the Garden of Paradise; He will greet you, and all the angels and the saints will come out to meet you.” At this moment McGuire usually says, “Just say yes to the Lord.” But on this occasion, he looked at the patient and added, “Ron, will you please say hello to the Lord for me and tell him I need some help here.” “Ron looked at me straight in the face and smirked. It was such a relief because in that moment we broke through. In that moment, he was ministering to me, not I to him. He knew that soon he would be able to meet the Lord.” Spring and signs of re-birth surround us. It is Easter again. This may be the year for us to finally come out of the tomb along with Christ.

Rivalry creates mayhem in Father Ted Continued from Page 5 “we heard there’s been a serious lapse in spiritual judgement.” Mother Superior sat down with Father Ted for what she hoped would be a serious spiritual discussion. But Father Ted had seduction on his mind, to the absolute horror of Mother Superior. He claimed that the “little blue pills” he received from father Dick were to blame, and that “there’s no way I’d ever be attracted to you.” This of course, was not something

Mother Superior enjoyed hearing. Father Ted was finally able to shift his attention to fundraising efforts for the big air band competition. But he discovered that Father McGuire had actually made a donation to his bitter rival, Father Dick, and this contributed to losing the bet. Father Ted knew what he must do, and arranged a face to face meeting with Bishop Brennan. When he told the Bishop that a vision of his face has been seen in the baseboard heater behind the

couch, the Bishop eagerly bent over to take a look. Father Ted quickly took aim and enthusiastically kicked the Bishop “up the arse” to satisfy the conditions of the bet. No doubt due to some of his questionable previous financial dealings, Father Ted received an uncomfortable visit from a gang of bikers: Black Mambo (Malcolm Broughton), Pansy (Tammy Senholt), Petunia (Joanne Sadler), Sweet Pea (Erica Leung) and Large Marge (Sharon Murray.) Father Jack had a fondness for the bottle, and prepared for the big air band completion by rockin’ out to Paradise by the Dashboard Light by Meatloaf with a bottle as his mic. Unfortunately for him, Bishop Brennan walked in just in time for the line, “Stop right there” and looked very displeased.

Father Patrick, (Brody Harrison), left, and Father Jasper (Jacob Danyluk) wanted to be exotic dancers in “steamy, exotic places” until Father Dick Byrne (Andrew Hoffman) explained to them exactly what it means to be an exotic dancer. Similar to the group on Craggy Island, this threesome had been exiled to the nearby Rugged Island Parish for various indiscretions. The air band competition arrived, and the competition continued between Father Ted and Father Dick. The

crew from Rugged Island performed an energetic version of YMCA dressed as the Village People.

But Father Ted, Father McGuire, Father Hackett and Mrs. Leung outdid Continued on Page 7

Mother Superior (Betty Tomilin) dropped by to discuss matters of great spiritual importance, but instead was convinced Father Ted (Cal Tomilin) and the other priests had been engaged in various forms of debauchery.

Including lighting, sound, sets, bartenders and greeters, approximately 50 volunteers were involved in the

our pleasure working with the BBBP; both the cast members and those who worked behind the scenes.”

Bishop Brennan (Steve Merriam) paid an unwanted visit to Father Dougal, (Steven Merriam), left, and Father Ted (Cal Tomilin), who was bitter with the Bishop for banishing him to Craggy Island in the first place.

Invermay School News By Ivan Fidek Your vehicle probably needs a wash, but at least the snow is gone. As the seasons change, we get into another season, badminton. The senior team played in tournaments at Kamsack on April 4 and at Yorkton Regional High School on April 9. Natasha Fey and Anmarjola Juaneza won gold in girls doubles at both tournaments, and Skylar Wallin got a gold medal in boys singles at t h e K a m s a c k t o u r n e y. The Grades 8 and 9 team hosted its home tournament on April 8, where Cole Serron placed second in boys singles, Azalijah Segui won gold in girls singles, and Kayla Dubas and Trinity Fidek placed second in girls doubles. Good Spirit School Division recently announced its featured students on its website, and Azalijah Segui is the featured writer. Her class had an assignment to make up

their own myth or legend, after reading some Norse and Indigenous examples. She went above and beyond, as she often does, and this earned her the feature on the Division’s website. If you can remember

far enough back, some students submitted posters, poems or essays for Remembrance Day. Last week, Carol Sleeve and Pat Thompson from the Canora Legion paid the school a visit to present the winners. Legion

Canora Veselka Ukrainian Dance Club performs 45th annual concert T h e C a n o r a Ve s e l k a Ukrainian Dance Club held its 45th annual concert on April 7 at Canora Composite School. Tyler Craig, president, said the club has 76 dancers this year, ranging in age from three to 18. The club’s instructors are Liana and Serhiy Zabutnyy of Regina. Craig said the dancers performed very well and there was positive feedback from the audience after the concert. The auditorium was only about three quarters full, but he said that can be attributed to the slushy, wet driving conditions. Live music was provided by Orville Drobot, Norman

Werner, Stan Popowich and Garrett Keyowski as concertgoers entered the auditorium. The emcees for the program were Simone Homeniuk and Amanda Monich. Cassandra Danyluk, one of the senior dancers, performed O Canada. The concert opened with the Pryvit, the Ukrainian Welcome Dance. Dancers offered bread, salt and wheat to their guests, which represents a wish of health and prosperity. The program explained the dances performed during the concert, depicting various regions of the Ukraine. The dancers were dressed

stamping, combined with swift vertical wmovements. The Poltava Dance is physically demanding for the boys, while the girls display

The high energy dance for the Bukovynian region is characterized by high stepping, intricate foot stamping combinations. The dance of the Transcarpathian region, also known as Zakarpattia, is known for large, sweeping movements, and is characterized by the males clapping and slapping their boots and bodies. It is rhythmic and bouncy with distinct twisting motions. The Sailor Dance imitates the life of sailors and their duties aboard the ship. Due to the small space that the dance required, and no need

for a partner, the dance was popular on ships. Poland’s extended rule over the Volyn region influenced the dances and costumes from this region. Their dances are similar to the polka, characterized by energetic jumping, high legs, lively arms and twirling steps. The Hopak is a national Ukrainian dance, mostly performed in unison, as the women spin and the men squat repeatedly. The acrobatic aspect of the Hopak has been amped up in recent years and performed by male soloists, executing high leaps, turns, and split jumps during the performance. Continued on Page 10

REILKOFF, Virginia - Virginia V. (nee Kalmakoff) Reilkoff of Veregin, SK, passed away suddenly on April 6, 2019, at the age of 88 years. The second-eldest of four children, Virginia was born on April 16, 1930, in Canora, SK, to John J. and Mabel S. Kalmakoff. She was raised on their farm, five miles northeast of Canora. She was a big help to her parents on the farm, helping them with chores and looking after her siblings. As a young girl, Virginia attended Brenna School, a one-room rural schoolhouse, where she completed her grades 1 through 8. She was very athletic and active in sports in school, especially baseball. She went on to complete grades 9 through 11 in the town of Canora. In 1948, Virginia was united in marriage to Michael J. Reilkoff of Veregin, SK. They began their life in Kamsack, where Mike worked at Lomow’s Garage. By 1950, they moved to a farm nine miles northwest of Veregin, where Virginia took on the role of farmwife. Soon children came, and her days were filled with parenting, homemaking, gardening, cooking, baking, canning, berry-picking, sewing, chores as well as spring and harvest farm help. She also assisted her husband when, in the mid-Fifties, he broke and cleared large parcels of the Key Indian Reserve. In 1958, when their children reached school age, Virginia and Mike moved to the Village of Veregin, where they spent the remainder of their lives. In addition to managing the family home and assisting with farming in summers, in the winters she assisted Mike when, in the mid-Sixties, they purchased and operated the Veregin Poolroom. In 1970, the couple purchased the Tuxedo Club in the Town of Kamsack, which Virginia assisted Mike. After 28 years of marriage, her husband passed in 1976. Soon after, Virginia gained employment as a Special Care Aide at the Canora Gateway Lodge, where she worked until her retirement in 1992. Throughout her retirement, Virginia continued to grow large vegetable and flower gardens. She enjoyed curling with the Veregin ladies, reading, berry-picking and was an avid Toronto Blue Jays baseball fan. She deeply enjoyed spending time with her family and was a devoted grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. She also enjoyed socializing with friends and hosting visitors in her home, and is fondly remembered as a friendly, hospitable and generous host. She will be tremendously missed by all. Virginia was predeceased by her parents: John and Mabel Kalmakoff; husband, Michael J. Reilkoff; brothers, Jacob and Alex Kalmakoff and sister, Annette Shukin. She is lovingly remembered by her sons: Delmar (Terri) Reilkoff and Sidney (Debbie) Reilkoff of Kamsack, SK; and daughters Myra (Larry) Raffard of Kamsack, SK and Shirli (Gord) Collinge of Errington, BC; her nine grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; and three great-greatgrandchildren. The Reilkoff family would like to express their deep gratitude and sincere appreciation to the many friends and families in the community who consoled, loved and laughed with us as we said good-bye to a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, aunt and friend who will always be remembered. A private Funeral Service was held on Thursday, April 11, 2019, from the Chapel of Leson’s Funeral Home, Canora. Interment followed in the Veregin Cemetery. Those wishing to make expressions of sympathy may make donations to the Veregin Senior Centre or to the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation, as tokens of remembrance, in memory of Virginia V. Reilkoff.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is working with the rural municipalities to weight restrict or close the roadways containing these bridges until appropriate improvements or remedial work can be completed. Results of the inspection and assessment will be forwarded to the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan, which regulates professional engineering in the province. In Saskatchewan, professional engineers must follow the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code when designing a bridge. This is no different than the requirement that homebuilders follow the Canadian Building Code when designing a building, according to the release. For more information on weight restrictions and road closures, visit the Highway Hotline at www.hotline.gov. sk.ca, follow us on Twitter and Facebook or call the Highway Hotline at 511.

Municipalities and the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure partnered through the Municipal Roads for the Economy Program to commission an inspection and structural assessment of bridges known to have similar design and construction, according to a release from the ministry of highways and infrastructure. An engineering firm inspected six bridges located throughout Saskatchewan and preliminary findings recommend that five of the six bridges be weight restricted to carry less than secondary weights. These weight restrictions affect a bridge in the RM of Caledonia, the RM of Mervin and the RM of Scott as well as two bridges in the RM of Perdue, said the release. Some of these bridges impact heavy haul routes throughout the province, including one Alternate Truck Route and one Clearing the Path corridor. To ensure public safety,

Wolkowski paid tribute to the officials who worked the games, and was pleased to see that a number of younger officials got started and progressed well throughout the season. The most improved, most dedicated and most sportsmanlike players on each team were recognized by their coaches. IP The IP team was coached by Meridee Kopelchuk and Leona Kitchen. Kitchen congratulated the players for being very coachable and always ready to work when they came to the rink. She said they should be very proud of themselves and their progress during the season, highlighted by “a thrilling sudden death overtime victory to take first place in the B side of a tournament in Yorkton.” The award for the most

dedicated player went to Drew Kitchen. Courtlyn Heshka was judged the most improved player, while Hailey Kraynick was the most sportsmanlike. Novice White D w a y n e Wo l k o w s k i coached the Novice White team, with help from assistant coaches Leona Kitchen and Shane Kraynick. Kim Wolkowski was the team manager. The head coach said the team played a total of 32 games during the season, with a record of 18 wins and 14 losses. “They showed good sportsmanship regardless of the outcome of the games.” Kitchen added that the second year players demonstrated a great deal of maturity in encouraging and helping the first year players.

husband (the team’s coach) who was unable to attend the awards evening. “They were great kids to coach and really supported each other and developed into a true team.

One of the highlights was winning the C side of a tournament in Kelvington.” The award for the most dedicated player went to Ty Northrop. Wade Vangen was judged the most improved player, while Zarin Godhe was the most sportsmanlike. Atom Jeff Sznerch was the coach of the Atom team, aided by assistant coaches Ryan Hauber and Trent Wo l k o w s k i . G e n e v i e v e Shukin was the manager. Sznerch said all but three of the players were in their second year, which contributed to the team’s success. The squad went undefeated through the entire regular season, with 18 straight wins. “They all had fun right from the start of the season to the finish, and were focused on getting better.” The award for the most dedicated player went to Jhett Kelly, while Katherine Hauber captured the most

Wolkowski said the team members “worked hard and gave a great effort all season long, showing significant improvement.” One of the highlights of the season was the Canora Minor Hockey Day game against the visiting Kamsack Flyers. Kamsack jumped out to a 4 to 0 lead near the end of the first period, and things were looking grim for Canora.
