VOL. 101 NO. 31 | PMR #40007604

Sun shines on another successful Parkside Derby More than 20 years after his first attempt, Shellbrook’s Keith Wason is the 2012 Parkside Demolition Derby Champion. Wason frequently entered cars in the event in his younger days before taking a 20 year break from the event. He entered last year for the first time in 20 years and made it into the final but didn’t make it into the top three. This year he was the last man standing and his Roughrider green 1973 Chevy Impala looked like it could have gone a few more rounds. This year Wason found a stronger car that could withstand more damage and the change worked out for him. This year’s event was a return to form with temperatures soaring into the high 20’s after a cool, rainy 2011 event. Though there were thunderstorm warnings throughout the day, the poor weather stayed away until the evening. Parkside Community Club President Randall Johnson was once again happy with the results of the day, with proceeds going toward community projects in Parkside and across the region. In all, approximately 1,500 came through the gate while 300 stuck around for the evening’s dance. “We were happy with the turnout. It was another success,” said Johnson. Once again, community volunteers were key to the event’s operation from getting the grounds ready for Saturday to flipping burgPaul Verbonac lays a big hit on Brad Stewart, rolling his “Ghostbuster” station wagon onto its roof during Saturday’s ers in the canteen.

Blaine Lake celebrating Centennial The Town and RM of Blaine Lake are gearing up for a weekend of Centennial fun August 3-5. The Town will be a buzz with activity with a full slate of events through the weekend as the community celebrates its 100th birthday. Events commence Friday night with registration and a social in the Blaine Lake Composite Gymnasium from 7 to 12 p.m. Some of Saturday’s events include the Centennial parade on Main Street, starting at 10 a.m., a family slo-pitch tournament at the Sports Grounds, from 12 to 6 p.m. and the ribbon cutting on a new town monument at the corner of 4th Avenue and 1st Street West at 1 p.m. The evening caps off with a street dance featuring Dixie Highway and fireworks on

Railway Avenue at dusk. Sunday kicks off with a pancake breakfast at the Sports Grounds from 8 to 10 a.m. followed by a non-denominational church service at 10:30 a.m. in the tent at the sports grounds. The unveiling of a millstone will take place at 2 p.m. at the library while a variety of children’s activities will be available at the Sports Grounds from noon until 5 p.m. Live entertainment will take place Saturday in down town Blaine Lake while local performers will also take the stage at the Sports Grounds Saturday and Sunday afternoon. For a full itinerary of events check out the Town and RM of Blaine Lake’s website at and follow the Centennial link.

Volunteers gearing up for Street Fair Building on the momentum of last year’s inaugural event, the Shellbrook Street Fair is looking to be bigger and better in year two. Volunteers have been meeting for months organizing the August 25 event which is set to bring back some popular attractions while featuring a long list of new things to see. Headlining the afternoon are the Gold Dragon Wrestlers, out of Moose Jaw, who will be performing through the afternoon. According to Street Fair Committee Chair, Noreen Bryson-Mudry, the event is coming together smoothly with new additions coming on all the time. “We’re keeping the same format with just a few changes to keep it a little different,” said Bryson-Mudry. “There is definitely some more interest

over and above last year.” This year’s musical entertainment will be provided by Kerri English, Sweet Williams, Dizzy River and dance headliners Men Without Shame. One change from last year is that a $5 admission will be charged for the street dance to help cover some of the costs of the event. In addition to last year’s very successful beach volleyball tournament, a road hockey tournament has also been organized for the event. Once again Main Street will be blocked off from Third Avenue East to Railway Avenue to accommodate various vendors and exhibits while the tradeshow in the Shellbrook Community Hall will also be back for a second year.

Sun shines on another successful Parkside Derby

Continued from page 1 Wason’s win was nearly overshadowed by what was perhaps the biggest, scariest hit of the event’s history. In the final, a big hit from Jake/Paul Verbonac car to Brad Stewart’s “Ghostbuster” painted station wagon resulted in a roll over. When the dust settled, Verbonac’s car came to rest on top of the overturned Stewart station wagon. After a few tense moments, Stewart emerged from his car and walked away on his own two feet while Verbonac’s car required the assistance of two skid steers to get off of the rolled station wagon. Stewart’s car, which ironically featured the words “This side up” on the roof, was done for the day while the Verbonac car was able to continue but finished short of the top three.

Kelly Larson, of Dalmeny, just didn’t have enough car left to compete with Wason in the final minutes of the race, finishing second just ahead of Jon Tremain, of Shellbrook. This year’s event was one of the shortest in recent memory as each of the three qualifying heats and the two consolation events came to quick finishes. Parkside’s Derek Olson won the first heat while final runners up Kelly Larson and Jon Tremain finished first in the second and third heats, respectively. The Jake and Paul Verbonac car, Jamie Dumais, of Debden, and Brad Stewart advanced to the final by way of the first consolation heat. In the second consolation, it was Parkside’s Devin Waterhouse, Ryan Peake of Annahiem and eventual champ Keith Wason.

Parkside Community Club President Randall Johnson presents the Parkside Demolition Derby trophy to 2012 Champion Keith Wason, of Shellbrook.

Meanwhile, Bruce Campbell, of Saskatoon, took first place in the barrel race with a time of 23.81 seconds. On the ball fields, Saskatoon’s Dream Team knocked off perennial finalists Tippy Canoe in the A side of the event’s SloPitch tournament. The Dream Team came out of the round robin with a 3-1 record to earn a berth in the A side draw. Team Harris avenged their round robin loss to Hughes Heroes with a win in the B side final. Team Harris advanced to the B side after going 1-3 in the round robin. As with every successful derby car, hours and hours of labour went into Wason’s winning ride. With the help of his son Tavis Wason, brother Scott Wason and other pit crew members Todd Skauge, Marlon Stene and Daryl Kennedy.

The Dream Team, out of Saskatoon, edged Tippy Canoe to win the A Championship at the annual Parkside Derby Slo-Pitch Tournament.


Team Harris found their form after the round robin to win the B bracket in Derby Slo-Pitch Tournament.

Volunteers gearing up for Street Fair Continued from page 1 Gene’s Sports will be bringing a BMX bike demonstration to Main Street from 10a.m. to 12 p.m., with performers sticking around afterwards to give pointers to local enthusiasts. Support for the event also keeps growing as last year’s committee of seven or eight has now doubled to sixteen members. Though support has been great, the committee is still looking for some additional volunteer help on the day of the event.

Olympic Games need to change with the times


ilitary men in the United Kingdom were called into action at a variety of event venues as the 2012 London Summer Olympic games kicked off this week. They weren't called in to quell civil unrest or to direct traffic in the vast crowds – they were given tickets so that the London Olympic Organizing Committee could avoid embarrassment of hundreds of empty seats. The yawning emptiness of the Olympic events may be due to high prices of tickets, of a perceived in ability to get them or maybe people have just stopped caring. Maybe people aren't interested in paying an arm and a leg to check out equestrian, table BRAD tennis or rowing. DUPUIS The very idea of the Olympic Games has always impressed me ~ as, for the most part, these athNews letes are amateurs with day job who put it all on the line to be the best at what they do. Training in triathlon, distance running and weight lifting on your days off is pretty hardcore. But with that being said, perhaps the International Olympic Committee has forgotten about the entertainment value in their quest for pure sport. The games are expensive to host and host nations need to fill seats to make their money back. If they are looking to fill seats at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil nothing would do the job better than adding Mixed Martial Arts to their list of events. The sport has seen exponential growth over the past 12 years and is reportedly second in popularity, behind soccer (football), in Brazil. And it wouldn't be like they would be adding something completely foreign to the games. A very primitive version of today's popular sport called Pankration was a part of the Greek Olympic events. The martial art was introduced in 648 BC and at that time blended wrestling and boxing. Today's mixed martial arts features a blend of current Olympic sports like Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Wrestling and Judo, plus many more. If the IOC couldn't quite stomach what professional style mixed martial arts had to offer they could also go with amateur MMA in the next Olympic Games. The amateur form of the sport is a very toned down version of the professional competition taking place in promotions around the world. Thicker gloves are worn along with head gear while elbow strikes and knee strikes to the head are prohibited. As far sports go, few are more difficult to be great at. Fighters train in multiple disciplines and because of that mix, no two fighters are alike. They can't just get by on being a bar brawler or a submission ace – they have to put the whole package together. I'm not saying that the current Olympic Games are broken but if the IOC was looking for an edge to make the next Summer Games a slam dunk, they might want to look at bringing in a sport with this kind of proven popularity.


Perhaps the International Olympic Committee has forgotten about the entertainment value in their quest for pure sport.

YOUR TWO CENTS ~ Canada's Economic Plan in action Dear Editor, Thank you for allowing me to respond to Quebec Liberal MP Marc Garneau’s’ fear mongering on Bill C-38 (Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act). Before I do however, I would like to publicly thank Liberal Senator Grant Mitchell for breaking with Garneau’s Liberal Party and supporting our Government’s responsible resource development policy. Since 2006, our Government has been working to streamline the review process for major economic projects. Our efforts have made a difference without any negative environmental impact, but more needed to be done. Currently, companies undertaking major projects must navigate a complex maze of regulatory requirements and processes, and approval processes are long and unpredictable. This is why our Government committed to implementing Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2012 with our plan for Responsible Resource Development. Key to achieving this goal is our government’s “One Project, One Review” environmental assessment process. Economic Action Plan 2012. It is a prudent, long-term plan to grow Canada’s economy, create jobs, and get back to balanced budgets (more information about Economic Action Plan 2012 is available online at When discussing this Plan, we must consider it in a global context. We all know that, with the help of our Government’s Economic Action Plan, Canada’s economy has performed well relative to other countries in recent years. Job creation in Canada has been the strongest among G-7 countries with over 765,000 net new jobs created since July 2009. Canada’s economic growth leads the G-7 as forecasted by independent organizations such as the IMF and the OECD. Canada also has the lowest debt level ratio in the G-7 – by far. But the global economy remains a different story. In Europe, tremendous economic challenges remain, of which we are reminded all too frequently. In the United States – our largest trading partner – the economy continues to struggle. In these uncertain times, Canada’s economic stability depends on the implementation of a clear plan to safeguard our economy. This situation demands Canada not be complacent. We cannot allow political gridlock and instability to stall vital economic and fiscal reforms – as witnessed in the US and Europe. As the challenges our economy faces are not small or onedimensional, neither is our plan. Economic Action Plan 2012 is comprehensive and ambitious because it must respond to the magnitude of the threats Canada faces in an uncertain period of global economic turbulence and a rapidly changing global marketplace. Economic Action Plan 2012 includes numerous measures to create jobs, strengthen our local economies, and position Canada to compete in the global economy now and over the long-term.

Sask canola capturing national attention It was interesting recently to listen to a brief presentation by Johannes Vervloed, Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. To have someone of Vervloed's stature speaking locally (in Yorkton) was interesting of itself, but the reason for his visit was of greater interest. While in Saskatchewan, and on his way to Yorkton Vervloed toured several companies including Milligan Biotech in Foam Lake, and LDM Foods and Grain Millers at Yorkton. It was not coincidence that Vervloed focused quite a bit of his time looking at canola processing here. Vervloed said he believed there are chances for co-operation, adding they have actively worked on "an inventory of these opportunities." Clearly one of those opportunities revolved around canola. The visit was to begin to confirm those opportunities he said adding "the proof of pudding is always in eating it."


In the case of canola Vervloed explained how the European Union has initiated a phase in to 2020 of a 10 per cent use of biofuel in diesel, a mandate which could be met by the use of canola oil. The idea of canola oil flowing into biodiesel production is hardly revolutionary. It has been one of the driving forces behind higher prices, increased processing, and expanding acres in recent years. While biodiesel has spurred expansion for canola, there has been less actual production than one might have

anticipated. The situation is one where the idea of biodiesel has grown more quickly than implementation of production. The reasons for both are pretty straight forward.


If you see plants in your field that look different or that seem to be growing abnormally, take a closer look as it may be aster yellows. With the combination of a wet spring, recent hot weather, and an abundance of leaf hoppers earlier on, there has been an increase in the incidence and the symptoms of aster yellows in many areas. Aster yellows is a disease caused by a pathenogenic micro-organism called a phytoplasma. The symptoms of the disease depend on the species of plant. The most obvious symptoms are the malformed flowers and pods that give the plant an abnormal appearance (Figure 1). Aster yellows can affect 300 species of plants in 48 plant families including broadleaf crops, vegetables, ornamentals, weeds and, to a lesser extent, cereal crops. In Saskatchewan the crops that we can see symptoms on include canola, camellia, mustard, flax, sunflower, alfalfa, potato, carrot, tomato, pea, wheat and barley. You may also see various weeds infected with aster yellows including redroot pigweed, dandelion, stinkweed, chickweed, quackgrass, wild mustard, lambsquarters, knotweed, and sowthistle. The phytoplasma pathogen lives in the phloem tissue or the sap of infected plants and is transmitted from plant to plant by leafhoppers. Another source of the pathogen is from the United States where it can be carried by infected leafhoppers arriving on wind currents. Leafhoppers acquire the phytoplasma and transmit it to new plants as they feed. They insert their needle-like mouth parts into plant tissue, injecting their saliva, then suck up the sap. It is through their saliva that the aster yellows phytoplasma is transmitted. Leafhoppers do feed on the plant but the feeding itself is not considered an economic threat to the crop, it is the disease transmission that is a concern. After feeding on an infected plant it takes

two to three weeks before the leafhopper become infectious and can pass it on to other plants. The infectious period will last for the remainder of the leafhopper’s adult life (one to three months) in which infected hoppers can move from field to field spreading aster yellows. Luckily, the phytoplasma is not transmitted to the overwintering eggs. However, the pathogen can overwinter in the root tissue of biennial or perennial crops or weeds thereby providing a source of the disease in early spring. Once infected, symptom development depends on the age of the plant. Younger plants show symptoms within several days while with older plants it can take two to four weeks. Because of the delayed expression of the disease in plants, symptoms usually appear later in the season and damage is minimal. In 2007, aster yellow was more prevalent and some Prairie canola fields had up to 15 percent infected plants. Potential yield loss is hard to determine as it depends on the level of infection and how early the plant was infected. However, research results at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Saskatoon have shown that ten percent incidence of infected plants may result in yield losses between three to seven percent. Symptoms on the plant can vary from completely abnormal looking plants to more normal looking plants that have reduced seed set. Some plants can look normal but the pods are empty. Unfortunately, these symptoms do not appear until late in the season and yields can be disappointing. In most years, fields will only show trace amounts of this disease and rarely more than five percent. Usually economic loss from aster yellows in canola is minimal. In canola, the damage usually looks worse than it actually is, because infected plants are usually taller than the rest of the crop canopy with distinctive symptoms and an erect nature. Infected canola plants are often discoloured with flowers replaced by green leaf-like structures ad pods becoming deformed and bladder-like in appearance. Continued on page 8

In terms of interest in biodiesel it fits with an increased public interest in environmental sustainability. It also fits well with political agendas which call for less reliance on import oil stocks. The idea of growing oil looks good against the threat of disrupted import sources. But production of biodiesel has lagged because as canola prices have climbed that has impacted the ability to make a dollar at the production level. Ultimately biodiesel production must be competitive with traditional oil sources to make sense. At present that is not the case. Mandated requirements will help push production, but one might argue it is an artificial market which runs counter to the true philosophy of sustainability. However as the biodiesel sector does develop moving forward, canola should benefit, and connections like those starting to be made between the Saskatchewan canola growing region and the Netherlands are the signs of that.

August essentials for maintaining your garden -BY ERL SVENDSEN

Now’s not the time to let your guard down if you want to continue to enjoy the beauty and bounty that you’ve worked so hard for up to now. So here are a few essential tasks (some would say chores, but that’s such an ugly word) to perform throughout August. The first and foremost

is to ensure all your plants continue to receive adequate water. Thundershowers notwithstanding, August can be very dry and hot. Like people, plants can struggle along with poor nutrition for quite a while, but without water, death can occur within a few days. In addition to ensuring metabolic functions continue nor-

mally, water is essential for photosynthesis, cooling, and nutrient uptake. This latter occurs somewhat passively as water, loaded with dissolved nutrients, is absorbed through the root system. What may appear as nutrient deficiencies (yellow or purple leaves, poor fruit development, stunted growth, etc.) may simply be a lack of adequate water. If your plants have just started to wilt, they will recover if they receive water immediately. Left too long, they may recover only partially, appearing permanently wilted, with flower buds, blossoms and fruit dropping off. Damage to tomatoes can appear long after the plant has recovered: any fruit that established during the stress period can develop a condition called blossom-end-rot. The fruit may appear normal from the top, but the bottom will be brown and mushy. Other plants like peppers can be affected as well. The easiest way to prevent this disorder is to ensure even soil moisture throughout the growing season. In general, give your lawn and garden 1 inch of water

Limited access for Shellbrook Hospital Emergency Department Due to the difficulty in recruiting doctors, there is a temporary reduction in services at the Shellbrook Hospital.

per week, taking into account anything that falls for free from the sky. It is better to irrigate deeply infrequently to encourage deep rooting rather than several short bursts of water. This will help ‘drought-proof’ your plants. Time how long it takes to capture 1 inch of water in a shallow container on the ground when irrigating to gauge how long to run your sprinklers. Don’t forget to keep your compost pile moist to keep it humming along too. And containers need to be watered daily. Do not fall behind on weeding. Weeds are well adapted to poor growing conditions, are extremely competitive, take advantage of open spaces, and are particularly good at reproduction and establishment. If you let them go to seed, you will be fighting a bigger battle next year. Watch out for winter annual weeds. These are weeds that germinate in late summer/early fall (e.g shepherd’s-purse, stinkweed, chickweed, etc.) and overwinter as an evergreen, ready to flower in early spring. Avoid pruning trees and shrubs except to remove diseased or damaged branches. Pruning now may stimulate new, succulent growth at a time when the plants should be starting to prepare for winter with current season growth maturing and ceasing to grow. Wait until midSeptember to do any more maintenance pruning for the year. Continue to deadhead your ornamental plants. This includes summer flowering shrubs like spirea and potentilla; give these a very light shear to just remove the spent flowers. This will do three things. One, it will keep your plants and garden looking tidy. Two, it may encourage more flowering. And three, energy will be directed from producing fruit and seed to sending it the root system to help perennial plants survive our prairie winter. It will also ensure that these plants do not become a weed problem in your garden. The seedheads of some late flowering plants like hydrangea can be left to provide winter interest. Finally, as you begin to harvest your vegetable garden and create open spaces, consider planting another crop of spinach, Swiss chard, beets (for the greens), lettuce or radish.

Canada's Economic Plan in action Continued from page 5 Our Government is supporting job creation by stream-lining the regulatory process for major economic projects and extending the hiring credit for small business, to help local businesses hire more workers. Our Government is eliminating barriers to participation in the work-force by providing new support to Canadians with disabilities who want to be part of the workforce and assisting youth to increase their skill-set and connecting them with available jobs. Our Government is encouraging business innovation by supporting value-added internships and helping local businesses invest in research and development. Our Government will ensure that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans will protect the rivers, lakes and oceans that are home to our fisheries, instead of focusing on our ditches, man-made reservoirs and flood plains. The positive and targeted measures we take today, to help support jobs, growth and long-term prosperity, will shape the Canada we all want for tomorrow. Randy Hoback, MP Prince Albert

Report from the Legislature I am happy to report Saskatchewan’s economy is strong and growing. Recently released wholesale trade numbers for May show an increase of 13.2 per cent this year, the third highest growth rate in Canada. This increase in wholesale trade builds confidence in our business community, provides employment and contributes to the overall success of Saskatchewan. Another encouraging trend is our increase in exports. In May, Saskatchewan’s exports totaled $2.8 billion, up 19.8 per cent from last year. We exceeded the national average according to Statistics Canada, and had the second highest gain among the provinces. On a special note, Saskatchewan’s energy and agricultural products led the exports numbers; they were up 35.1 per cent and 14.1 per cent respectively.

All of this economic growth provides the people of Saskatchewan new employment opportunities. Our latest employment numbers show that 548,900 people are working in Saskatchewan; this is the highest employment number on record for the second straight month. It’s great to see so many people working to build their future here in Sas-

katchewan. Saskatchewan has been blessed with

amazing growth; with this growth comes the responsibility to ensure our natural resources are there for the next generation. One of the most important resources we have is water. To that NADINE end, our government WILSON is working to create a ~ 25 Year Water Security Saskatchewan Plan. This plan will Rivers provide an effective Toll Free: 1-888-763-0615 water management www.nadinewilstrategy, which will deal with the challenges created by growth, while ensuring safe, sustainable supplies

of water now and into the future. This fall, Integrated Water Saskatchewan, will be the new agency responsible for the implementation of the 25 Year Water Security Plan. This agency will bring together water management expertise from the public and private sector. This pooling of expertise will increase our water management capacity and provide strong leadership on water related issues throughout the province. We will see a one window approach for water-related issues that will benefit both individuals and businesses. This consultation document is available on the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority website at, and all citizens are encouraged to provide comments before the end of August.

SaskPower reminds customers of carbon monoxide risks SaskPower reminds customers of ways they can protect themselves from carbon monoxide in their homes and businesses, in light of several recent incidents in

the province involving the deadly gas. “The first thing customers should do is make sure any gas appliances like water heaters or ranges

are serviced and operating properly,” said Douglas Hird, Senior Engineer of Gas Codes and Standards for SaskPower. “In two recent incidents, portable air conditioning units were installed incorrectly, so there was a continuous exhaust of the warm air to the outside without an air pipe to bring in fresh air.” This condition is known as “depressurization” and occurs when inside air is exhausted faster than outside fresh air can come in. Excessive depressurization will cause a natural draft water heater to backdraft, spilling carbon monoxide into the

home. “Natural draft water heaters and furnaces need sufficient fresh air,” said Hird. “Customers need to make sure there is a properly functioning fresh air intake installed. Fresh air intakes can become clogged or they are sometimes blocked by homeowners who are unaware of their important purpose.”

To help alert customers to the presence of carbon monoxide, SaskPower recommends the installation of carbon monoxide detectors. Look for a detector that is listed with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or the Underwriters Laboratory of Canada (ULC). Check the expiry date on detectors as they need to be replaced periodically.

While detectors are a good safety backup, they aren’t a proper substitute for regular maintenance of home heating and cooling equipment. SaskPower has developed a series of safety brochures that contain information about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. This information is available at all SaskPower

Government to review brands Advisory Committee Formed to Look at More Efficient Brand Inspection Services for Producers Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart today appointed an advisory committee, made up of livestock industry representatives, to examine industry-led delivery options for livestock brand inspection services in Saskatchewan. The Brand Inspection Services Advisory Committee will study the current brand inspection models in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, review options for industry-led brand inspection and recommend a preferred option to the Minister of Agriculture. Brand inspection services in Saskatchewan are currently delivered through Min-

istry of Agriculture livestock inspectors. The service is provided to ensure that animals offered for sale are rightfully owned and verified through a brand registry. The role of government in verifying ownership of livestock is unique in Saskatchewan. No other agricultural commodity is purchased or sold in the province with a government service to verify ownership. Stewart said the group will look at all options including an integrated western Canadian approach. Alberta, for example, currently has an industry-led and delivered brand inspection system. The advisory committee will conduct comprehensive analysis and stakeholder consultations and finalize a recommendation by early 2013.

Aster Yellows Continued from page 7 We are starting to see aster yellows showing up in fields in Saskatchewan. This is not surprising given that leafhoppers were reported in high numbers this spring with a higher than average infection rate reported by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. Unfortunately, there is nothing to fix the situation. There are no products registered to control the disease itself and no varieties with resistance. Once the symptoms appear there is nothing that can be done to reverse the infection or kill the organism. Ways to

minimize the potential for aster yellow infection for future years include seed early, control perennial weeds in and around susceptible crops, avoid planting near perennial crops that are known to be infected, and watch for the presence of leaf hoppers. Application of an insecticide registered for use on leafhoppers may be beneficial if populations are high enough early in the season.

Government introduces Comprehensive Care Program As part of the province’s continued efforts to improve access to high-quality patient care, Health Minister Dustin Duncan announced $9.83 million in funding for a new program to encourage and reward family physicians in providing patients with a full range of services. “Physicians are vital partners as we transform our health system to better meet patients’ needs, including improving access to health care,” Duncan said. “As part of our agreement with the Saskatchewan Medical Association, I am pleased to introduce the Family Physician Comprehensive Care Program to recognize family physicians who provide patients with a full range of primary care services, while at the same time encouraging more physicians to expand their practices to full comprehensive care.” Physicians who qualify for the program monitor the overall health of their patients, collaborate with other health care providers

on their care, and manage their patients’ chronic diseases. In addition, qualifying physicians are caring for their patients when they are hospitalized, in a nursing home, or having a baby. “We know from other high-performing health systems that when patients are provided comprehensive primary care services, such as chronic disease management, their health and satisfaction with the service improves - and this approach is consistent with our focus on patient- and family-centred health care,” Duncan said. “This program will improve access to medical services for the people of Saskatchewan,” SMA President Dr. Janet Shannon said. Fifty-eight per cent of Saskatchewan’s family physicians currently provide their patients with a full range of services, as defined by the Family Physician Comprehensive Care Program. This new program is designed to increase the num-

ber of family physicians who provide continuity of care to their patients through comprehensive services, reducing the need for patients to seek uncoordinated, epi-

sodic care. For example, it is hoped more physicians will manage their patients’ chronic diseases according to accepted care guidelines. As well as improving ac-

cess to health services, the program aligns with Saskatchewan’s recently announced initiative to strengthen its primary health care system. The goal

of the initiative is achieving a primary health care model that is sustainable, offers a superior patient experience and ensures better access to services.

Saskatchewan Roughriders full of surprises Well you have to hand it to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. They have surprised us in each and every one of their first five games of the 2012 CFL season. The trouble is it hasn't always been a pleasant surprise. The Green & White played pretty much error-free, airtight football in their opening three games on the way to a 3-0 record. It was unreasonable to expect they would play at such a high level the rest of the way but the way the last two weeks have gone is utterly flabbergasting. The Riders blew a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter in Calgary in Week 4 and lost 41-38 in overtime. Rider coach Corey Chamblin vowed that wouldn't happen again but the very next game, this past Saturday at home, the Riders built up a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter against Hamilton only to eventually lose 3534. WHAT?? This football team is thisclose to being 5-0 and being the toast of Canadian football yet they're mired at 3-2

ROD PEDERSEN ~ With the Voice of The Riders

along with four other teams. "Of course you never like to lose a game in any fashion," Chamblin told us after the game. "There's things we need to reassess and we can't have those second half slides. When turnovers happened, and the long pass to Giguere, field position changed. Those are all part of a game." Yah but they're in first-place going into the bye! Sorry, that's small consolation. A false positive. The biggest concern is they seem to be without the answers for why they can't stop anybody in the fourth quarter. The heat is on quarterback Darian Durant however his offence has put up 38 and 34 points in the past two losses. That's enough to win you games.

Durant is directly responsible for the club's three turnovers the past two weeks yet where are the takeaways? It's a team game and quite frankly while Durant is fine with assuming his share of the blame, there's plenty of blame to go around. What alarms this blogger is that the Riders were unable to follow up Chamblin's promise that a giant lategame collapse wouldn't happen again. That's proof the coach can't control everything but his anger and bewilderment after the game shows he's as frustrated as everyone else. Still, as a good coach does, he's keeping his head up. "The positive is we go into the break a winning team but there are things we have to fix," Chamblin reasoned. "We didn't panic but we have to get guys off these emotional swings. We have to continue to learn how to finish. 42 men need to step up and play hardnosed football." It's all part of a young team growing up together but when you think about what could of been, it keeps you up all night.

Teens dominant in world of women's golf One of the most amazing things about the recent Canadian women’s amateur golf championship in Lethbridge — besides the incredible 14-under-par score over four rounds posted by the champ, Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand — was the utter dominance by teenagers. This was the Canadian women’s amateur, not the junior women’s. Of the top five, the elder stateswoman was a South Dakota player, Kimberley Kaufman, the only one of legal age to enjoy a cool postround beer. She’s 20. Just call her ‘Granny.” Jutanugarn is a 16-year-old phenom well known in the world of women’s golf, where she’s the world’s No. 1-ranked amateur. She’s a year or two away from the LPGA Tour, where she will take on the world’s best alongside her sister, Moriya, who is 17. Moriya finished second at Lethbridge, with a nine-under-par score. Angel Yin of California finished fourth, and she’s 13. We’ll repeat, this is the women’s amateur. Just in case you thought the world of young teenaged phenoms was limited to Thailand and the United States, think again. The top Canadian finisher was Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont. She finished fifth and she’s only 14 years old. Imagine that! Canada’s best women’s amateur golfer is 14! With Canada’s footprint on the LPGA tour about as weak these days as it has ever been — Lori Kane and Alena Sharp stand 76th and 89th respectively in tour

Public input sought on the future of electronic heath records eHealth Saskatchewan is inviting residents of Saskatchewan to visit a website to learn more about electronic health records and participate in a short survey to answer questions about what type of electronic services would be useful to them. “We are emerging into a world of huge possibilities in technology allowing people access and information to empower them to be an active partner and decision maker in care options with their health provider or in managing the care of a loved one,” eHealth Saskatchewan CEO Susan Antosh said. “This survey will help us determine what’s important to Saskatchewan residents and if they even desire things like access to their own medical test results, for example.” “We have made a great effort to ensure we are putting the patient first in our health care system, and that includes their electronic health information,” Health Minister Dustin Duncan said. “It’s important that we know what the patient or caregiver needs and wants in that technology and that will be of the most value to them Eventually every person in Saskatchewan will have an electronic health record (EHR) that is a private, lifetime record of their medical information, which will provide authorized health care professionals with immediate access to test results, past treatments and medication profiles. Currently, some of the infrastructure already in place, or under development, which will feed into the information for the EHR includes a Radiology Information System and Picture Archiving Communication System (RIS/PACS), RIS/PACS is a data system that captures diagnostic images such as x-rays, CTs, ultrasounds, MRIs and Mammography that can be accessed by clinicians from anywhere in the province. The Pharmacy Information Program includes information about prescriptions filled within Saskatchewan community pharmacies, and more recently, the Saskatchewan Lab Results Repository was created to allow health care providers to view lab test results for patients. Information collected through the surveys, combined with feedback being gathered through health sector workshops taking place over the summer, will help shape the future of electronic health records in Saskatchewan. “I encourage people to take the time to do the survey as it will help to ensure priorities for EHR are aligned with patient and family-centred care,” Antosh said. The survey can be found at the eHealth Saskatchewan public engagement website at and will be available until midnight on September 7. eHealth Saskatchewan is the Treasury Board Crown Corporation responsible for planning and building a provincial EHR and supporting and maintaining electronic systems that make up the electronic network for the all health regions and health stakeholders in the province.

Legion #79 and the Catholic Church ladies for the lovely lunch. To everyone who sent cards, donations, flowers, food and in any way helped before and after mom's passing we cannot express our appreciation enough. - The Edith Schlichemeyer Family

MEMORIAMS VAUGHAN - In loving memory of Denny, 1976 - 1994. INDELIBLE Without intending, we came together, unknowing that in a short period our lives would blend to giving part of ourselves to each other.

Now, we leave, no longer able to remove the impact thus experienced. You have become a part of me that I cannot erase, what I carry now is there forever. - Miss you Denny, wish you were here! Love Marcy.

We would like to thank all our family and friends for the support, kindness and thoughtfulness during the sad loss of our mother and grandmother Edith Schlichemeyer. For



the kind care given to mom/grandma during her stay we want to give a special thank you to the staff at Leask Wheatland Lodge and Larry & Jeannette Prefontaine and their staff. Heartfelt thanks to Pastor Chris Dean, Hawryluk Funeral Home, the Leask
