RCMP bust marijuana grow-op near Big River Nearly five kilograms of marijuana, derivatives and some “magic mushrooms” were discovered as a part of a pair of search warrants executed in the Big River area late last week. Members from the Big River Detachment along with Prince Albert’s Integrated Street Enforcement Team executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) search warrant on a property north of Big River August 8 where an outdoor marijuana grow operation was located. Through the search, 35 marijuana plants were seized weighing just shy of 5 kilograms. A second warrant was executed the following day, August 9, at a residence in the town of Big River where an additional quantity of marijuana and derivatives were located along with Psyliosybin, also known as ‘Magic Mushrooms”. According to Big River RCMP Cpl. Josh Hallett, the initial search warrant was issued as a result of an ongoing investigation which was conducted over the course of a month and a half. The second search warrant was issued as a result of findings from the search of the grow operation. Daniel Daley, 53, and Carmen Daley, 60, of Big River, were charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, production of Marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and unlawful storage of a firearm. Daniel Daley had been out of the area at the time of the searches. He was arrested and subsequently appeared in Big River court August 13. Carmen Daley was released before a Justice of the Peace to appear in court in Big River on October 10, 2012. The Integrated Street Enforcement Team is a specialized unit out of Prince Albert that assists detachments with some policing duties like the execution of search warrants.

Local man drowns in Fish Lake A 59 year old man has died after a his boat capsized in Fish Lake last week. Paul Grimard, of the RM of Canwood drown in the lake north east of Canwood August 8th. At about 6:30 p.m., Shellbrook RCMP responded to a call of a capsized boat on the lake. Members responding learned that other boaters on the lake saw a six year old boy clinging to the hull of the capsized boat while waving for help. The boaters rescued the boy from the capsized boat and in doing so discovered a man submerged in the water beside the boat. With the assistance of members of the Spiritwood Detachment and their boat, the lifeless body of Paul Grimard was located submerged beside the capsized boat and recovered by the

members of the RCMP. The 55 year old female passenger of the boat, Grimard’s wife, who had made it to shore, was found alive and disoriented by a local resident, and reunited with the boy rescued from the boat, then both were transported to hospital in Prince Albert for treatment of exposure and hypothermia. Findings in the RCMP investigation indicated that the group had all gone fishing together in the capsised boat before noon August 8. but it is unclear how long they were in the water as there were no witnesses to the boat capsizing. No lifejackets were observed on any of the victims or in the capsized boat and the investigation is ongoing in conjunction with the Coroner’s Branch.

Sask continues mountain pine beetle fight Saskatchewan will contribute $450,000 to mountain pine beetle control efforts in Alberta as the two provinces work together to aggressively detect and remove infested trees at the leading edge of the infestation in eastern Alberta. The partnership agreement provides a framework for a comprehensive regional strategy to combat the beetle before it gets established in Canada’s jack pine forests and aims to stop or significantly slow the beetle’s spread into Saskatchewan’s north. The mountain pine beetle outbreak has killed approximately 60 per cent of British Columbia’s lodgepole pine forests. Six years ago, the infestation crossed the Rocky Mountains, spreading halfway across Alberta. Research has confirmed that mountain pine beetle can survive in jack pine which means that forests in northern Saskatchewan and across Canada are at risk. “The mountain pine beetle represents a significant threat

to Saskatchewan’s pine forests and to the environmental, social and economic contributions they make to our quality of life,” Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said. “Working with Alberta provides our best chance of preventing this insect from becoming established in our majestic northern forest.” “We appreciate Saskatchewan’s recognition of the interprovincial implications of mountain pine beetle infestations in our boreal forest and how this impacts our environment, our communities and our economies,” Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development Minister Diana McQueen said. “This partnership is a great example of the many ways we work closely with our neighbours to strengthen our region.” The Government of Saskatchewan is contracting with Great Western Forestry Ltd. to survey forests in Saskatchewan’s northwest and in the Cypress Hills for mountain pine

beetle and to mark infested trees for removal. This is the second year the province has contracted with Great Western to a value of $350,000. “Jack pine makes up 40 per cent of Saskatchewan’s softwood volume upon which a significant portion of our forest industry depends,” Cheveldayoff said. “ “The mountain pine beetle program will help protect the long-term sustainability of Saskatchewan’s forest and its industry, which currently accounts for more than 2,600 direct jobs and more than $400 million in annual product sales.” Surveys will begin in September and be completed by November. Last year’s surveys detected no mountain pine beetle in Saskatchewan outside of the known infestation in the Cypress Hills. The information provided by the insect and disease surveys is essential to the development of an effective provincial and regional response.

Personal exemptions when cross-border shopping Don’t spoil a cross-border shopping spree by finding out you have to pay unexpected duty on goods. One way to avoid such a surprise is getting to know the rules for personal exemptions. This will allow you to bring goods of a certain value back home to Canada without paying regular duty and taxes. Here’s a snapshot from the Canada Border Services Agency: • After 24 hours - CAN$200, no alcoholic beverages or tobacco products (if more than $200, full duty and taxes are applicable); • After 48 hours - CAN$800; • After seven days - CAN$800. You can bring one of the following amounts of alcoholic beverages free of duty and taxes as long as you are within the minimum age, as prescribed by provincial or territorial authorities (18 years for the provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec, and 19 years for the remaining provinces and territories): • 1.5 litres of wine; • a total of 1.14 litres of alcoholic beverages; or • up to a maximum of 8.5 litres of beer or ale. If you’re 18 or over, you can bring all of these types of tobacco products free of duty and taxes within your personal exemption: • 200 cigarettes; • 50 cigars; • 200 grams of manufactured tobacco; and • 200 tobacco sticks. Be aware that there are no exemptions for same-day travel — and shoppers are reminded that all purchases are subject to applicable PST, GST and duty. Also, the rule is that you must declare everything you buy, regardless if any of the exemptions apply. There are more tips for travellers at traveltips.

Unrealistic demands in CBA negotiations Few things boggle the mind more than collective bargaining in professional sports. The National Hockey League and its players association, the NHLPA, are at the very beginnings of talks on a new collective agreement. The current agreement expires September 15 and the teams that form the NHL no longer want to work under that framework. While the NHLPA seems to be OK with the current CBA, the NHL owners have indicated that if an agreement isn't signed by the time the current one expires, they will lock out the players before they have the opportunity to strike. The NHL unleashed their proposal which featured a 24 per BRAD cent roll back in salaries caused DUPUIS by a reduction in the players share of league revenue and a five ~ year cap on the length of player News contracts. Maybe they were starting big so any concessions given will look small by comparison. I'm quite glad that sport doesn't translate well into the real world because if my employer asked me to take a 24 per cent wage hit I'd be looking for another job. But then again, these guys earn millions of dollars to play a game. Last go around, the NHL owners won the fight as they were able to establish a hard salary cap with a linkage to league revenues. Every year the league revenues increase, the salary cap comes up with it. This was accomplished at the expense of an entire NHL season. Today, the NHL is looking to maintain that linkage but carve the cash pie in favour of the owners rather than the players. What I don't understand is that teams around the league are still offering big contracts while these negotiations are taking place. Zach Parise and Ryan Suter received identical blockbuster 13 year, $98 million contracts to sign with the Minnesota Wild to start off the summer. In all fairness, the contracts were offered before the NHL made their first proposal but each of the league's 30 teams were part of the process so each of them knew what was coming down the pipe. So basically the team was offering a pair of contracts that they knew were likely going to be unavailable under the new CBA for an amount of money they weren't actually going to pay. Meanwhile, the NHLPA wants to delink the salary cap from revenues and simply set a rate while also increasing revenue sharing to help out some of the league's flounding teams. Last time out, the league seemed to be the voice of reason and the union looked like the five year old throwing a tantrum and threatening to pick up its toys and go home. This time out, the league reminds me of the restaurant customer whose steak gets sent back to the kitchen repeatedly while the NHLPA is the waiter scrambling to salvage their tip. With just a month left to get this deal done I hope that stances relax or we may be watching poker this winter.

YOUR TWO CENTS ~ Harvest opportunity Editor: In about a month, the combines will begin rolling across our constituency as our farmers go about the vital business of feeding Canadians and the world. But this year there’s one historic difference. For the first time in 69 years, Western Canadian farmers will have a new freedom that entrepreneurs in other parts of Canada, both on and off the farm, have long enjoyed: the freedom to sell the fruits of their labours to the buyer of their choice. The doors to marketing freedom opened wide on August 1, 2012, when Prime Minister Harper announced our Government delivered on its long-standing commitment to stand up for the individual rights of farmers. The Prime Minister and our Conservative Caucus was particularly proud to be joined by some of the farmers who were fined or jailed for their belief in the cause of freedom. The Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act officially ends the seven-decade sales monopoly on wheat and barley in Western Canada. With the start of the new crop year on August 1, Prairie farmers can sell their wheat and barley when they want and to whom they want – the same as farmers in Ontario. Western Canadian farmers will have more buyers than ever competing for their grain – including the CWB, which is offering a number of innovative pooling programs for farmers looking to balance their risks. The Harper Government has provided the CWB with the resources needed to be a viable and strong competitor in this new open market. The CWB is open for business, with handling arrangements secured across the West and plans to expand its basket of crops to canola. Marketing freedom will help rejuvenate the Western Canadian wheat industry. Wheat put Canada on the map and marketing freedom will put it back on top. Already, we’re seeing new alliances and synergies spring up throughout the value chain right across North America. Marketing freedom is more than a Western issue. A strong farm economy drives the economic pistons that generate jobs and growth right across Canada. It couldn’t have come at a better time for our farmers. Markets, exports and long-term demand are all on the rise. We celebrate a new crop year and a new era for agriculture. It’s unfortunate that as our Government gives more freedom to Western Canadian farmers, members of the NDP and Liberals are already discussing ways in which they can take these rights away through protest and frivolous lawsuits. Unlike the opposition, we know that marketing freedom will unleash the true economic potential and entrepreneurial energy of the Western Canadian grain sector. An open market will attract investment, encourage innovation, create value-added jobs, and build a stronger economy for all Canadians. MP Randy Hoback Prince Albert

Public perception of animals could have far reaching consequences The view of others to the traditional ways are quickly changing. That is particularly true in the way people see human association with animals. We saw most poignantly with the seal hunt. Once cameras took pictures and they were sent around the world people were appalled. The clubbing of seals is in no way a pretty sight. The question of whether it is inhumane is a different one entirely. The way of killing was not something the world wanted to see, and there was a backlash, but the hunt did have its reasons for existing, and the method of killing was efficient. That industry was shaken to basic extinction by the media coverage, and there have been reports since of a burgeoning seal population impacting fish stocks in the areas of the former seal harvests. Recently a picture on Facebook was circulated of whales forced to shore and harvested on the Faroe Islands as part of a long held tradition dating back to the 10th century. The reaction was again generally negative, although there was no indication the species of whale was endangered, and the harvest is for food. It was just a general attitude that such a harvest was a bad thing. We see that attitude creeping into the general viewpoint of average citizens more and more.

There is growing opposition to many equine sports because there is a feeling they are abusive to horses. We have seen it with chuckwagon races and to a less extent with horse races. Rodeo comes under fire from some as well, and we have actually seen rodeo start to evolve with some groups moving away from the most controversial events such as calf roping and CALVIN steer wrestling. Even though those events are most directly tied to what a DANIELS cowboy might do in certain ranching ~ situations, they are also the ones seen as most controversial. As a result bull riding, the premier rodeo event, has forged its own trail through the popular PBR events, and rough stock rodeos, like the one held recently in Yorkton, featuring only bareback, saddle bronc and bulls are catching on. While these things might not be seen as agriculture, they do relate back to the way people in general see animals and that impacts farmers. The American horse slaughter, or loss of it, being a prime example, as short-sighted as that was. Those arguing for the end of the slaughter have not considered where old horses should end up, understanding death


Many producers graze their cattle on alfalfa in the fall. Alfalfa can cause frothy bloat at any stage of its development. The period of greatest risk is during the vegetative and early flowering stages. Levels of soluble proteins and saponins are highest at this stage of growth. These, in addition to rapid rates of digestion, contribute to the onset of frothy bloat. As alfalfa matures the risk of bloat becomes less than the earlier stages of development. Ideally, wait five to seven days after a killing frost before grazing alfalfa. This will reduce the potential for bloat by allowing the levels of soluble proteins to drop. The risk of bloat becomes lowest when 50 to 70 percent of the top growth has dried after a killing frost. There are several products on the market that can be used to reduce the risk of frothy bloat when cattle are consuming alfalfa. Talk to your veterinarian or feed company representative for additional information on these products. To ensure the maximum winter survival rate, alfalfa should not be cut or grazed for at least four to six weeks prior to the first hard killing frost. In Saskatchewan, that means avoid grazing or cutting alfalfa from mid-August to late September. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;criticalâ&#x20AC;? period allows the plants to produce and store energy to help them survive the harsh winter conditions. The extra energy is also used to produce new plant growth in the spring. Other factors can contribute to winter injury. These include wet fall soil conditions that reduce the plants ability to harden off prior to winter, a lack of snow cover that exposes crowns to extreme cold and low soil fertility. The decision to cut or graze alfalfa during the critical period becomes a question of weighing the risks. Factors such as a the value of hay, the potential yield, the number of grazing days, the age of the stand and the cost of re-establishment due to winter injury must be considered. Grazing alfalfa in late fall can also help reduce infestations of alfalfa weevils. The cattle eat the stems, leaves and other trash where alfalfa weevils normally overwinter. This also reduces the plant material where weevils lay eggs in the spring. On a side note, exercise caution when moving cattle from

grazed out pastures into areas where there is more lush plant growth. There is always potential for the occurrence of atypical interstitial pneumonia (A.I.P.). This condition can develop when there is a sudden change in the diet. A compound is formed in the rumen that affects the lining of the lungs. It may take four to ten days for symptoms of A.I.P. to occur. Producers may find dead cattle without noticing any warning signs. Laboured open-mouthed breathing and restlessness are common symptoms. If affected cattle are stressed by trying to move them out of the pasture, they may suddenly die. It is best not move the animals. Contact your veterinarian for proper diagnosis and treatment. Before moving cattle to any new fall pasture, provide dry feed to ensure the rumen is full. Ideally, graze the new pasture for two or three hours on the first day. Rotate the cattle with dry feed and the new pasture for four or five days until they become accustom to the new grazing area. For more information on this or other feed and forage topics, contact your Regional Office at 306-446-7962 or the Agriculture Knowledge Centre at 1-866-457-2377.

by old age in a field of clover might be a Hollywood ending for a horse, but isn't reasonable in the real world. But in a world where people are doing things such as dressing their dogs in tuxedos and having them walk down the church aisle as part of wedding processions, the view of animals is clearly changing. That changing view is going to change the way we all interact with animals, whether as hunters, or farmers, or pet owners. The changes will be made by politicians well-removed from farming, listening to masses of voters, also well removed from what happens on a farm where their food is produced. That combination will mean rules and regulations which lack both common sense, and understanding of raising livestock. And sadly there may be little farmers can do to prevent it either.

Life on the shady side of the garden -BY ERL SVENDSEN-

All gardens, regardless of where they are, will have shady areas, whether under the canopy of trees or along a solid structure. Even in my south-facing backyard, I have shade along the back fence. And of course my whole front yard is in shade most of the day. For those that like variety in the garden, there are shadeloving choices besides hostas and ostrich ferns. Don’t get me wrong; those two are the workhorses in most shade gardens. Hostas come in many sizes (as small as a couple of inches to as large as 2 ft. tall and wide) and in a variety of leaf colour (shades of blue, green, gold, and striped [various combinations of white, gold, green, blue]). But they all have the same general mound shape. And ostrich ferns, once established, need to be corralled regularly as they like to spread themselves around. My favourite hosta-alternative is elephant ear or ligularia. It is a bold herbaceous perennial with large, dark green, toothy-edged, heart-shaped leaves. Plants can reach over 2 feet tall with flowers overtopping the plant by an additional 12 to 24 inches in mid-July to August. Definitely not for full sun. Nor is this plant drought tolerant, preferring moist feet in rich well-drained soil. There are two similar species grown on the prairies. One is Ligularia dentata (e.g. ‘Othello’) with showy, bright yellow, daisy-like flowers, about 2 – 4 inches across. The other species is L. stenocephala (e.g. ‘The Rocket’) with tall, densely-packed spikes of small yellow flowers.

Another great shade lover is snakeroot (aka black bugbane; Actaea racemosa syn. Cimicifuga racemosa). This perennial makes a statement in the garden, forming a large mound of dramatic, dark green to chocolate-purple, coarse, deeply cut leaves. Expect mature specimens to reach 2 – 3 feet tall and wide with creamy white (pink undertones), fragrant flower spikes that can add another 18 - 36 inches in height in midsummer. Moist soil is a must but unlike ligularia, performs equally well in shade or full sun. A native plant, highbush cranberry (Viburnum trilobum) is one of a number of shade tolerant viburnums. It is typically found as an understory shrub in moist woodlands or in open moist meadows in full sun (clues to where to place it in your garden). Depending on the cultivar, highbush cranberry ranges from 5 to 15 feet tall x 5 to 10 feet wide. The shorter cultivars are compact shrubs; the taller ones tend to be open structured, multi-stemmed tall shrubs that can be trained to a single- or few-stemmed small tree. The large (2 – 4 inches across), dark green, three lobed leaves turn bright red in fall. Large white flower clusters appear in early spring followed by edible fruit ripening from yellow to orange to red. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention red-osier dogwood (Cornus sericea syn. C. stolonifera; similar species - C. alba and C. siberica). It requires evenly moist soil but will otherwise grow anywhere with light levels ranging from full sun to dense (75%) shade. Depending on the cultivar, this shrub can be relative small (2 - 3 feet tall and wide) to moderately large (6 – 8 feet). There are cultivars with variegated leaves (white/green or yellow/green). If growing one of the culti-

vars prized for its brightly coloured late winter/early spring branches (coral red, bright yellow or purple), prune out 1/3 of the oldest branches every year in late fall; these will be the branches with the darkest, roughest bark. These are just a few of the many shade tolerant perennials that can be grown in a prairie garden.

New ways to update health registration info Saskatchewan residents who need to update their health services card registration information can now efficiently complete these requests by using new online printable notification forms. “The ministry is constantly looking for alternate solutions to better serve our customers,” Health Minister Dustin Duncan said. “These newly-developed forms provide a convenient and efficient way for residents across the province to update their information with the Health Registration Branch. This is a good example of how we are putting the patient first.” The ministry also launched an online application for health cards last year. There are six new printable forms available on the Minis-

try of Health website at, including: • Change to Family Unit; • Change of Address or Request Replacement Card; • Change of Information or Legal Change of Name; • Notification of Extended Absence; • Notification of an Updated Immigration Document; and • Notification of Power of Attorney. Individuals can complete the applicable forms and submit them along with supporting documentation to the Health Registration Branch in Regina. The function to directly submit changes to registration information online is currently under development. With the availability of online forms and other alternate

services including call centre, email service and fax, the Health Registration Branch front counter in Regina, which primarily serves customers from Regina and surrounding areas, will close effective September 10, 2012. This change will allow the branch to redirect staffing resources to better meet the needs of residents across the province. People who have questions regarding their health card can email the Health Registration Branch at change@health., or contact its call centre at 1-800-667-7551 (inprovince only), or 306-787-3251 (Regina area or outside Saskatchewan). For more information related to the Saskatchewan health card and health benefits, please visit health-card.

Province receives 3700 submissions on labour law renewal Labour Relations and Workplace Safety received more than 3,700 submissions in response to a public consultation paper proposing a comprehensive review of the current provincial labour legislation. “The consultation paper proposed a series of questions for consideration and stakeholders responded,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said. “The invaluable feedback received will be critical in determining the scope of our efforts to introduce an employment code that more accurately reflects the contemporary work environment while preserving an effective work-life balance.

100th Birthday Party for Floyd Trusty

“Importantly, the considerable number of submissions indicates that the 90 day consultation period allowed stakeholders sufficient time to participate in this process. The consultation period provided the opportunity for the ministry to receive informed advice and counsel.” The labour legislation review is intended to restructure and reorganize the existing legislation, eliminate inconsistencies, clarify legislative applications and modernize legislation to reflect today’s changing work environment. The submissions will be thoroughly reviewed by the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety as well

Southbound lanes on Diefenbaker Bridge closed until August 27 The City of Prince Albert has closed both southbound lanes on the Diefenbaker bridge until the end of August to continue bridge repairs.

Family Fun Circus entertains Shellbrook crowd

Johnny Rocket, the human cannonball, flies through the air. A breathtaking array of stunts were on display Sunday afternoon as the Family Fun Circus Shellbrook. The circus, out of Dallas, Texas, is in the midst of its first tour of Canada which began in Manitoba and will end in British Columbia before heading down south. Ringmaster Jairo Ojeda said that circus performers have to love what they do or they simply wouldn’t do it as it isn’t a simple life. They put countless hours into perfecting what they do and to ensure that the show happens at all. “We get up at 4 o’clock every morning, load up all the an-

Decision announced on proposed Midwest Project A proposed uranium mining and milling project in northern Saskatchewan has cleared another hurdle. Canada’s Environment Minister, Peter Kent, announced this week that the proposed Mining and Milling the Midwest Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects with the implementation of the mitigation measures and follow-up programs described in the comprehensive study report. The Minister has referred the project back to the responsible authorities, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Natural Resources Canada and Transport Canada, for appropriate action. In reaching his decision, the Minister considered the Comprehensive Study

Report and the comments received from the public on that report. A copy of the Minister’s environmental assessment decision statement is available in the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry, reference number 17519. AREVA Resources Canada Inc. is proposing the mining and milling of ore from a uranium deposit located 700 kilometres north of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, near the eastern margin of the Athabasca Basin. The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency administers the federal environmental assessment process, which identifies the environmental effects of proposed projects and measures to address those effects, in support of sustainable development.

imals, drive hundreds of miles, get to the next stop, set it up, (put on the show), tear it all down and drive to the next town,” said Ojeda. “There’s really no day off, so it really is a labour of love,” said Ojeda. The performers and crew have the setup, tear down and get performances down to a science as they put on upwards of 16 shows a week. Their first trip to Canada has not disappointed as the crowds have been loud and appreciative where ever they

have traveled. “They are just so nice to work for. They can appreciate all the hard work that goes into doing the show,” said Ojeda. The show featured a clown, animal acts featuring trained dogs and horses, a pair of aerial acts, juggling, a contortionist and culminated with “the World’s Youngest Human Cannonball. Just a few hours after the circus trailers pulled into town, there was barely a trace of them having been at the sports grounds as they made their way to their next destination.

How to avoid frustration when redeeming travel rewards You’ve spent ages building up enough points to take a long flight, only to find out that your travel rewards provider has a blackout period for the dates you want to vacation. Scenarios like that happen too often for Canadian travelers, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Stephen Menon, Associate Vice President, TD Credit Cards, provides advice on how to choose the right travel rewards credit card for your needs. “When choosing a travel rewards card, many people don’t take time to think about how they will redeem their points,” says Menon. “To avoid being annoyed later on, this shouldn’t be overlooked. Consider a card that allows you to book travel where, when and the way you want so you can have a positive experience when booking your vacation.” Here are some tips to consider when booking rewards travel: • Look for a travel rewards card that allows you to book your trip through the travel agency or provider of your choice – whether online, in person or by phone. Not only does this provide added convenience, but it can also help save you money by allowing you to take advantage of lastminute deals. • Your travel rewards card should allow you to not only redeem points you’ve earned, but also allow you to earn extra points just for using your card to book the trip. For example, when TD Travel Credit Cardholders book trips through Expedia For TD, they can redeem some or all of their points automatically upon booking and they earn

triple points for travel purchases charged to their card. • Avoid the hassle and frustration of saving up rewards that can’t be used when you want. Choose a credit card issuer with a travel rewards program that has no blackout periods. • Your card should also allow you to redeem your points for everything related to your travel, from flights, car rentals and hotel costs to taxes, gratuities and parking. “If you keep these tips in mind, your travel rewards card might make the difference between the trip of your dreams and one you’ll want to forget,” adds Menon.

Fish oil is good for the brain and heart The heat can get the better of you during the summer months making you feel sluggish and forgetful. It looks like mom was right about taking fish oils. An omega-3 essential fatty acid supplement can help with mental acuity and staying focused, especially during the lazy summer months. Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids are crucial for brain, skin, muscle, joint and heart health, and taking a supplement is the best way to get these vital oils, as the body cannot produce them on its own. 1. Arthritis and Inflammatory Conditions The powerful anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3 oils from fish help reduce stiffness in joints and help relieve joint and muscle pain. 2. Attention Deficit Disorder and Memory Recent research reveals that omega-3’s, specifically DHA, help increase focus and memory retention in children and adults. 3. Cholesterol, Blood Pressure and Heart Disease Omega-3 oils promote healthy cholesterol levels in the body by helping to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and raise good cholesterol (HDL) levels. Clinical research also reveals reductions in blood pressure with the intake of omega-3 fatty acids. 4. Depression and Mood Regulation Regular supplementation of omega 3 fatty acids helps to elevate mood and lessen depression and anxiety. High potency fish oil with added vitamin D is very useful in treating


Seasonal Affective Disorder or the “winter blues”. 5. Digestive System Health Regular omega-3 supplementation helps to soothe and lubricate the bowel, ease elimination and support overall digestive health. 6. Healthy Eyes Fish oil supplements reduce the risk of age related vision problems including macular degeneration. The DHA found in fish oil is important for the visual development in infants. 7. Diabetes Fish oil can help to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease. 8. Improved Brain Function in Babies Pregnant women who took a high quality fish oil supplement had babies with higher IQs and fewer learning disorders, and were less likely to develop mental retardation or cognitive delays. 9. Skin Disorders The Journal of Lipid Research announced in 2005 that a few benefits of fish oil regarding skin condition are oil production regulation, increased hydration, reduced acne and fewer wrinkles. 10. Weight Loss - Studies show that fat loss benefits of fish oil combined with diet and exercise were significantly greater than diet and exercise alone.

Will the real Roughriders please stand up?


Voice of The Riders he team from the provpr The ince which bares the phone prefix '306' was the toast of the Canadian Football League after a torrid 3-0 start this summer under rookie

head coach Corey Chamblin. They were the last of the unbeatens. Now, following the Roughriders' 28-20 loss at Edmonton Friday night, they are the CFL club who's gone the longest without collecting a win. The boys in the green hats have lost three games in a row and stand at 3-3. Technically, they are in last-place in the CFL West. What happened? Well Friday night before the largest crowd in the CFL this season (just over 43,000), the Roughrider put on a shameless display of penalty-laden football and lost the turnover battle 3-0. We had JUST learned that 89% of teams

who win the turnover battle go on to win the game. A former Roughrider and Eskimo who's in the Rider Plaza of Honour told me after the contest "if it wasn't for the penalties and turnovers, Saskatchewan would have won the game!" True, but that's like me saying "if I wasn't so ugly, I'd be hot". That's football, and the Roughriders left the stadium smarting even though they put up close to 500 yards offence. "That's not the Saskatchewan Roughriders," fumed Chamblin after the game. "There were a lot of penalties, turnovers and big plays

against our defence. That was a very undisciplined showing by our team." However upon the Riders' return home to the YQR the next day, Chamblin had changed his tune considerably. "When you look at (Rider quarterback) Darian there's always room to improve but Darian's playing fair to good at this point," the coach reasoned. "Darian is not a part of our problem right now. He's going to throw interceptions - every QB in this league will. I'm okay with Darian's play right now." Ah, textbook Coaching 101. When the Riders were 3-0

Chamblin was the first to say his team was a long ways from perfect and they had a ton more to give. Now that they've hit the skids, he's doing his best to lift the spirits and keep it positive. "The guys had the focus there," Chamblin continued at the airport. "We just have to find a way to win. The biggest thing I'm proud of is we've been in all six games. It's not like they've been blowouts. They're a young team which is getting older. I'm pleased with this team right now." Durant followed right in line, which is worth noting. If the Roughriders are go-

ing to turn this thing around pronto, the quarterback and coach need to be on the same page. "We're good," Durant answered when asked about the team's psyche. "We realize what's wrong. It's not like, after the game we're looking for answers or we're getting blownout. The psyche's good, spirits are high, it's early and we all realize that." The trouble is it's getting a little late to still be saying it's early. The biggest test of the season comes Sunday in B.C. (5:00 kickoff) against the Grey Cup champion Lions. Will the Riders stand up for this one?

Fish story: Trout having a whopper of a year This is about the one that didn’t get away. Los Angeles went fishing for a slugging outfielder and landed a kid by the name of Mike Trout, who is almost guaranteed to hook the 2012 American League rookie of the year award. The Angels and their fans, needless to say, are in love with Trout. They have fallen for him big-time — hook, line and sinker. Trout started the 2012 season in the minor leagues. He was 20 years old when he was called up to the Bigs in late April. It was a slow start, 1-for-11, until a fourgame series in early May against Toronto Blue Jays — five hits in 16 at-bats, with 10 runs-batted-in in — got this amazing fish story started. It only got better. Trout, playing like a defensive veteran in centrefield, has simply been the AL’s best hitter this year. His May was great (.324 with five home runs), his June was sensational (.372, three dingers and an on-base percentage of .419) and his July had Cooperstown calling for his hat size (.392, 10 homers in 97 atbats, a .455 on-base percentage and a Ruthian-like .819 slugging percentage). The 10 home runs tied an Angels record for one month. “My confidence has definitely increased because I'm getting more at-bats (and) playing every day and just getting more comfortable,” Trout told “I'm feeling pretty good

out there right now.” Angels’ manager Mike Scioscia said Trout is “on his way to a remarkable career. He's just getting started, and look what he's doing. He's just an unbelievable baseball player.” Despite Trout’s remarkable rookie season and the Angels off-season signing of the generally acknowledged best player in baseball, Albert Pujols, the Angels are still struggling mightily to make the playoffs. They entered mid-August seven games behind West Division-leading Texas, but are in the thick of the wild-card race. With Trout surrounded by so much talent — among others, the lineup includes Pujols, Torii Hunter and second-year slugger Mike Trumbo and a pitching staff that starts with Jered Weaver, free-agent signee C.J. Wilson and recently added superstar Zack Grienke at the trade deadline — it’s hard to believe the Angels aren’t leading the West Division by about 15 games. But they aren’t, so they’ll need another July-like month from Trout in August and September. If his numbers get any better, though, it’ll sound like a real fish story. • Comedy writer Jim Barach: “Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson says he could beat Usain Bolt in a race under the right conditions. Apparently those conditions would include a 50-yard head start

BRUCE PENTON ~ with h Bolt B lt having h i one hand h tied to his leg.” • Barach again: “An Olympic spectator was arrested at a cycling road race for “not smiling.” It’s just a good thing that London police are not in charge of security at Cubs games.” • R.J. Currie of “France's Yannick Agnel won Gold in the men’s 200m freestyle, posting the fastest time since bodysuits were banned.

He yelled ‘cannonball.’ “ • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “Former leftfielder Jose Canseco has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Or as he prefers to call it, an E-7.” • Janice Hough of “The Cowboys have apparently talked to Plaxico Burress’s agent about signing the freeagent wide receiver. Could be a good fit – Dallas has a strong quarterback, a winning tradition, and loose gun laws.” • Hough again: “Almost eight years after the 2004 Olympics, the IOC is apparently going to strip Tyler Hamilton of his cycling gold medal for doping., and give it to Russia’s Ekimov. “Wow, fast investigative work,” said administrators at Penn State. • Comedy writer Alex Schubert, on Terrell Owens moving from the Arena Football League to signing with Seattle Seahawks: “Nothing says NFL ready

Russell Patrick 'Bud' Dicus September 12, 1926 – August 8, 2012 With deepest love we say goodbye to our dear husband, dad, bumpa, and friend, Bud Dicus. Bud passed away on August 8, 2012 just short of his 86th birthday. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his loving wife Flo, children; Merl (Estelle) Dicus, Penny (Raymond) Brad, Trudy (Paul)Watier, Lorne (Twila) Dicus, Scott (Christi) Dicus, 15 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren, brother, Owen (Muriel) Dicus, sister, Grace Kennedy, sister-in-law, Noreen Dicus, along with numerous nieces & nephews and many friends. He is predeceased by: his parents; Oscar and Flora Dicus, brothers; Harvey, Manuel (Irene), Lenard (Pearl) and Willard, sisters; Norma (Sam Howat) and Enza (Maurice) Heard, brother-inlaw; Herman Kennedy. Bud was born in Kilwinning, Kilwinn then moved to Leask at the age of 6. Bud taught himself guitar at an early age, continuing his entire life. Bud told stories about his Uncle Joker picking him up with a team of horses and sleigh to go play for dances at the age of 14. Bud joined the army at the age of 16 and when he returned home, he met his love, Flo. They married in Spiritwood on November 7th, 1952. They lived on a farm 16 miles northwest of Leask. They worked hard and raised 5 children, who gave him more than a few gray hairs, and grandkids over the years. Bud was a devoted husband and protector. Roses are a symbol of love and mom got a lot of love. Bud always had a joke, story or a funny expression for every occasion, people gravitated toward him when he walked into a room. He welcomed people into his world. Throughout his life he was a sports enthusiast; he played hockey and ball in his younger years and in his retirement became an avid golfer and curler. He liked nothing better than to play on a team with his kids. He has inspired more than one person to sing and play guitar and he loved a good jam session. Some songs live on forever and this little verse, written by a couple of Bud’s granddaughters, compiles a few of the ones that Dad sang to his kids, his grandkids and his great grandkids. "Won't You Ride in my Little Red Wagon" and we'll go "Out Behind the Barn" where we can eat some "Bread and Gravy", and maybe have a little sip of "White Lightning", because "I Wouldn't Change a Single Thing about you if I could." And now "We've got Company Coming Up the Road". Bud will be remembered as a great husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather as well musician, curler, golfer and volunteer extraordinaire. Next time you are on the golf course, the curling ice or shooting pool, think of Bud and smile because you know he's watching and smiling back at you. A Celebration of Life was held in Bud's honor on Monday, August 13th, 2012 at 2:00pm in the Lion's Hall, in Shell Lake. Private family interment followed the Service in the Shell Lake Cemetery.“The Happy Wanderers” played and the Honor Guard was the Royal Canadian Legion. Bud’s family would be honored if in lieu of f lowers, donations in his memorybe made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Email condolences to www.beaulacfuneralhome. comwill be forwarded to the family. Ed Beaulac of Beau “Lac” Funeral Home entrusted with arrangements.

Ken was born on August 15, 1941 at home on the farm in the Avebury District, SK. He walked the 2.5 miles to school often with his sister Ruth. The family later moved into Leask and from there Ken graduated from high school in 1959. He worked for the bank in various town from 5 years before returning home to the family farm. Ken married Margie Toth October 24, 1971 and they started their family shortly after. Gatherings with friends and family were common as Ken would welcome them at the door and invite them in for coffee. He had a great sense of humour, always ready with a story to tell and treated everybody with dignity and respect. He took pride in everything he did as Ken enjoyed farming, fishing, auction sites, woodworking, feeding wildlife, playing cards and endless hours of the dice game. Ken will be lovingly remembered and forever cherished by his wife, Margie; children, Adeana and Bryce; grandson, Austin; sister Ruth (Albert) Roode; niece Susan (Doyle) Dean; great nephew, Casey Dean; brother-inlaw, Herb Toth; sister-in-laws, Lauraine Toth, Bev Toth and Laurine Davidson; Aunt Grace Valuck; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Elek and Mary (nee Valuck) Monus; parent-in-laws, Charles and Margaret Toth SR; brother-in-laws, Ed Toth and Raymond Toth. At per Ken’s wishes, he was cremated after being able to donate his eyes as a Gift of Life. His ashes will be laid to rest following a private interment beside his parents in Leask Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to St. Paul’s Hospital – Palliative Care Unit or a charity of the donor’s choice. Arrangements have been entrusted to Hawryluk Funeral Home, Leask, SK.

Re-insulate the attic for energy efficiency Reduce your home's energy loss through the attic by simply topping up the existing insulation. By increasing your insulation R-value in the attic, it will lower your overall energy costs. While your attic is most likely insulated, over time, that insulation can settle or compact, reducing its R-value. A breezy attic may also result in drifts or shifts in your original insulation, leaving gaps where heat can escape. A 'loose stone wool' insulation will fill in any gaps and provide an overall covering, acting like a blanket on top. It is simply applied on top of your existing

attic insulation to increase the R-value and level of energy efficiency, resulting in savings on your utility costs. Retailers tell us that the Roxul RockFill loose insulation will also absorb sound, creating a more quiet and comfortable home. This easy to do upgrade project can be tackled by any level of DIYer as the easy-to-use RockFill loose insulation can be applied by hand instead of by machine like many other types of insulation require. To apply the loose insulation, simply open the bag, aerate the insulation with your hands (loosen it up) and spread over your existing insulation.

Watch out for bacteria at barbecues, picnics We tend to pick up bacteria by being outdoors in the summer, and eating al fresco can pose health hazards as well. Before you know it, you can pickup a food borne illness by eating a burger or potato salad that has been out too long or grazed by a fly. It is estimated that house flies carry around 1,941,000 different kinds of bacteria. If they come into contact with food, it may have an adverse impact on health. Can a probiotic a day can keep the doctor and bad bacteria away? Absolutely, says naturopath Dr. Brenda Watson, who believes that probiotics are the new multivitamin. Dr. Watson advises, “Probiotics are crucial for supporting the immune system, balance intestinal environments and inhibit growth of pathogenic organisms,” she says, pointing out that the digestive tract plays a major role in the strength of the immune system. Probiotics are friendly,

beneficial bacteria, which are normal inhabitants of the large and small intestines. These bacteria help produce digestive enzymes, synthesize vitamins, absorb nutrients, control inflammation in the body, and control overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungus. Contrary to popular belief, yogurt is not the best source of probiotics, says Dr. Watson. It’s true that all yogurt is cultured with probiotics, but not all yogurt contains live cultures in the finished product. This is because yogurt must be pasteurized, or heated, to kill off potentially pathogenic bacteria. Unfortunately, this also kills off the beneficial bacteria the yogurt was cultured with. Typically, probiotic supplements contain between 2 to 6 billion organisms per capsule. On average, less than 5% of good bacteria arrive alive, and are able to populate once inside the intestine. It is important to look

for a probiotic supplement that has a sound delivery system to ensure the probiotics are not destroyed by stomach acid on the way to the intestines. How much probiotics to take depends on each individual and his or her health needs. “Think of a low potency probiotic as your multivitamin” Dr. Brenda Watson continued. “A 2 billion cfu (colony forming unit) dose is what you would need to take everyday to maintain good health. The dosage amount differs from person to person, and more information can be obtained at”, advises Dr. Watson. Recommended Daily Probiotic Usage • 2 billion cfu: Minimum required to maintain good health • 6 billion cfu: Everyday maintenance for people with chronic intestinal complaints such as Chron’s, colitis, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, mild constipation, candida or parasites. It

is also recommended for people who have completed a course of antibiotics. • 50 billion cfu: Very high potency probiotic is recommended for people with chronic active issues linked to constipation, Chron’s, IBS, active yeast infections and for supporting a weakened immune system, or coming off long-term antibiotic use. Four Features to Look for in a Probiotic Supplementing your daily diet with probiotics is the easiest way to build up good bacteria, to keep the immune system strong. Here are some important tips from Dr. Brenda Watson, when choosing a probiotic supplement. 1. High Culture Count: The culture count refers to the total amount of live, friendly bacterial cultures in a single serving. For general health, 2 – 6 billion bacteria per serving is sufficient. If treating a health condition, a higher culture count like 50 bil-

lion bacteria per capsule is ideal. Always check with your doctor first for the ideal amount of bacteria for your health needs. 2. Number of Strains: There are over 1,000 strains of beneficial bacteria in the gut. A good rule of thumb is that a variety of strains more closely resemble the diversity that naturally exists in the gut. Look for the naturally occurring strains that begin with Ls and Bs, like lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. A good way to remember is that the L strains are good for the little (small) intestine. The B strains are good for the big (large) intestine or colon. 3. Delayed Release: Probiotics must travel through the harsh stomach environment and arrive alive in the intestines to be effective. If they never make it through the stomach acid, they won’t do you any good. Delayed-release capsules are engineered to remain intact through the stomach and begin dissolving

in the intestines, where they are needed most. Entericcoatedcapsules or bio-tract tablets protect the probiotics from harsh stomach acid and delivers them directly to the intestines where they are needed and utiltized by the body. 4. Potency at Time of Expiration: Any probiotic is fresh when manufactured, but very few remain at full strength through their expiration date. A probiotic supplement, when delivered to the right place, with the right amount of cultures and strains, can help promote digestive health, bowel regularity and strengthen the body’s natural immune defenses. Be sure to read the label for potency at time of expiration, not manufacture. Dr. Brenda Watson is the founder of Renew Life, a New York Times bestselling author, and the host the PBS health show “The Road to Perfect Health”.

It's hard to believe one year ago The angels took you from us. When we saw you sleeping, So peacefully free from pain We could not wish you back just to suffer again. We think of you in silence, We think of you daily, We speak you name often It's been a year, but we think of you just like yesterday We now have an angel looking over us. Your memory will live on, We will never stop missing you We love you with all our heart Until we meet again. - Brian & Andrea and family.
