A variety of talent entertains Shellbrook

By Tom Pierson The Shellbrook Elks Theatre was once again put to excellent use March 17th. A variety show entitled The Old and the Young, described the audience, the entertainers and the beneficiaries of the evening. The Golden Host Players organized the show and Spokesperson Pat Grayston said, “Every year our fund goes to a charity.” She added that instead of gifting the Grandmothers for Grandmothers group as originally planned, the Happy Hearts Childcare Centre was chosen because, “they need the money this year to get going.” The performers included Ed LaClaire on his accordion who got the evening off to a great start. He was followed by 92 year-old Don Brunsdon whose flying fingers on the violin were dazzling. Brunsdon switched to playing the electric bass guitar to accompany Irma Brunsdon on Saxophone. Irma had played the bass for the first two acts. Backing up the main acts were Gerald Lanes, Bruce Isbister and Kerri English. Kerri then took centre stage with some of her violin students, who each played a solo piece before getting together on a great piece. Iris Minifie came out in costume and did a special dramatic reading. Jenny Hosie followed with some great vocals. The LPs are well known to Shellbrook audiences, and were warmly welcomed on this night as they performed several inspirational songs. Doug Schmirler transformed into Leonard Cohen on the keyboards for a while, before there was a comedy break. Myron Wall and Wade Reddekopp performed the old classic, “Who’s on First” made famous by Abbott and Costello. In February 1938, Abbott and Costello joined the cast of The Kate Smith Hour radio program, and the sketch was first performed for a national radio audience that March. Continued on page 11

The Learn to Curl program for students between Grades 1 and 5 came to a close for the season March 20th. A windup party with pizza and pop was enjoyed by the whole crew. Coaches Pam Boettcher and Brad Ledding posed for a group photo with all of their charges. Missing are coaches Richard and Tricia Bell. The youngsters curled once a week all year and during the wind-up, Marliese Kasner, who is very well known in curing circles, gave a pep talk to Photo: Tom Pierson the kids.

Wall’s dinner was a platform of success

By Tom Pierson The Saskatchewan Party faithful gathered at the Art Hauser Centre in Prince Albert Mach 21st for the Premier’s Dinner. They were not disappointed as Premier Brad Wall expounded on the many successes his government has achieved under his command. Brad Wall said, “Thanks for all of you coming tonight. It is one of the most important events in the life of our party every year.” The population report came out on Budget Day from Statistics Canada. Wall said, “It turns out, ladies and gentlemen, that Saskatchewan grew by 21,690 people last year. We are now at an all timed high of 1 million and 89,807 people.” Wall said the growth has spurred a great deal of interest in the province. He provided examples of tweets he has received and stated, “We are attracting people from across this country.” He added, “Our province hasn’t grown this fast for 100 years.” Talking about the strong economic climate that exists in Saskatchewan today, Wall said that people are now coming from far away for the opportunities that now exist here. He proudly announced that,” we also tabled our government’s sixth consecutive balanced budget.” More good news, Wall stated, “For the first time in the history of our province, our credit rating has been upgraded to AAA. Wall talked about the importance of balanced budgets and the need for them. With a deficit spending budget, it takes money away from programs because you have to service a bigger debt. You cannot build highways nor can you build infrastructure. Continued on page 6

Spring runoff to flood area

www.shellbrookchronicle.com

March 29, 2013

No injuries in mishap

With the more than 57 inches of snow received in the Shellbrook area, Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff continues to raise concerns about the potential for flooding this spring. Cheveldayoff is concerned about the Shellbrook, Blaine Lake, and Rosthern areas. Earlier this month, Cheveldayoff reported that spring runoff was expected to be higher than normal for much of the province. The two areas for concern at that time were Regina and Moose Jaw. There has been more snow piling up across the province, since then. It is possibly making a bad situation worse. The province is already working with officials in North Dakota to get ready for an above average runoff. Water has been released from the Rafferty and Alameda in the Estevan area to make room for spring runoff.

This car found an unusual parking spot on 2nd Avenue in Shellbrook March 23rd. Shellbrook RCMP reported members of the public spotted the car being driven erratically and driving through two stop signs. Then the vehicle’s speed increased and the car hit a snow bank and came to rest on top of it. The 60 year old male was attended to by local bystanders before being transported to Shellbrook Hospital by EMS. The individual seemed to have serious medical issues. Otherwise, there were no injuries. No charges are pending. Photo: Tom Pierson

Strong season for Pee Wee II Shellbrook Elks

Back Row: (Head Coach)Trevor Miller, Brody Swanson, Connor Klassen, Tanner Wolfe, Sam Miller, Nolan Ferster, Blake Bear, (Assistant Coach)Jay Ferster. Middle Row: Colton Bahnuick, Keldon Bird, Zach Lomsnes, Paxton Tremblay, Sam Lafond, Estyn Hyman. Front Row: (Goalie) Kyle Skavlebo. Missing: Linden Bird. (Assistant Coaches) Jeremy Wolfe & Ken Lomsnes The 2012-13 PeeWee II Shellbrook Elks team consisted of players from the communities of Shellbrook, Big River, Canwood, Ahtahkakoop First Nation and Big River First Nation. Team work from dedicated parents to drive the players to practice and games was as necessary as team work on the ice to develop skills and learn new plays. The coaching staff was strong and diverse, lead by Trevor Miller and assisted by Ken Lomsnes, Jay Ferster, and Jeremy Wolfe and supported with invaluable training from Brian Tremblay. The season kicked off a little shaky as the players got to know each other and the talents they had to offer to the team. Since the PA City Tournament was early, November 2 to 4, the players were not yet cohesive as a team and lost out in the B-final. As the players started

to appreciate each others skills and to work together as a team, success was more apparent. Team play strengthened quickly and continued throughout the season in the PA Minor Hockey League with games against the PA Canadians, PA Rangers, PA Sharks and PA Stars. A friendly rivalry developed between the Elks and the Rangers leading up to an exciting season ending. Late in the season, the Rangers were expected to finish first in league standings with the Elks close behind in second place. But in hockey, there are no guarantees! The Canadians snuck in from third to capture first place with 26 points in 18 games, the Elks finished with 24 points in just 17 games and the Rangers finished with 26 points in 19 games. The Canadians earned a bye in the first round of playoffs, leaving

the Elks facing the Rangers for a two-game totalpoints series to determine which team would head to the A-final. On March 13th, the Elks hosted the Rangers for the first game of the series. The Elks played their strongest game of the season while the Rangers had difficulties coordinating plays ending in an 8-3 victory for the Elks. March 16th was game two at the Kinsmen Arena in PA. The Rangers came out strong and captured a commanding lead while the Elks were in survival mode and unable to put the puck in the net. The Elks lost three players from the bench during regulation time due to a penalty and two injuries. The Elks started to push back with stronger playing in the third period but to no avail as the Rangers scored their fifth goal with just 12 seconds

left on the clock sending the series into overtime. No goals were scored; so, after 10 minutes of 5-on5, the series was pushed in to double overtime. The clock was reset for 5 minutes of 4-on-4. Fans cheered on the teams and the Rangers scored about halfway into the double overtime to win the series by one point! The Rangers headed to the A-final while the disappointed Elks hung up their skates for the season. On the tournament circuit, the Elks had great success! They participated in the 18th Annual Jason Blanchette Memorial PeeWee Tournament in Edam. They defeated the North Battleford team and the Edam 3 Stars in Pool B games to meet up with Lloydminster team in the A-Final. Lloydminster was a little stunned to lose to a smalltown team and the Elks

brought home a beautiful trophy! The Wakaw PeeWee II Invitational Tournament was not without controversy as most of the teams registered were actually tier III or untiered unbeknownst to the Elks until they arrived; so the competition was, unfortunately, not evenly matched during the day. Shellbrook easily defeated two Saskatoon teams in pool play to meet up with Wakaw in the A-Final. The home team was challenged to play up a notch and executed a great team effort but the Elks finished off the day with another victory and another trophy. And Elks goalie Kyle Skavlebo recorded a shut-out tournament! The Hafford Mustangs hosted a round-robin tournament with the Turtleford Tigers, the Battleford Barons and the Shellbrook Elks participating. The Elks won all three games they played

3

and earned another first place tournament trophy! The Saskatoon Bobcat Jets hosted the Vonda Memorial Classic PeeWee II Tournament with four Saskatoon teams, the Pa Canadians and the Shellbrook Elks. In game one of Pool B, Shellbrook struggled to get on their game, losing a close game to the Saskatoon Viper Flyers. For game two, the Elks were back to good teamplaying and defeated the Saskatoon Bobcat Oilers to compete in the B-Final. And who should they meet but the PA Canadians? The Canadians struggled throughout the day and the Elks put in another solid game to win the Bside trophy! Quite an amazing haul of trophies to add to the showcase at the Shellbrook rink! Congratulations to ALL the players, coaches and parents for an enjoyable and successful Elks season.

What to do about the weather

Spring is sprung, the grass is ris. I wonders where the birdies is. They say the birds is on the wing. Ain’t that absurd? I always thought the wing was on the bird. That little gem is known as Spring in the Bronx, author - Anonymous. That little ditty is very appropriate here in Shellbrook as we await spring weather to match up with spring on the calendar. The temperature, as of 3:23 p.m. March 20th is -8, feels like -18 Celsius with blowing snow. The weather network also says winds are from the east at 39 kph. In there 14 day forecast, they call for double digit lows until March 29th, when we will see snow mixed with rain showers. The highs until then are between -9 and warming up to -2. Then we start getting into the pluses during the day. TOM You know what? I will believe it PIERSON when I see it! I would like to talk about Spring ~ stuff, like getting ready for summer, News But unfortunately I have to tell you to make sure you have your snow tires on your car and have you check to see that your furnace is operating efficiently. I know these items are taken from the get ready for winter list, but after a winter of almost five feet of snow that does not want to leave, what can one think? Just so you know, the temperature in Montego Bay, Jamaica was a cool 27 Celsius. In Las Vegas it was 24. In Hawaii the temperature was 25. I thought if I waited a few days to Temperature finish this column, I would have something positive to say about the weather. in Montego Instead, here we are March 26th and I woke up to, “feels like -24.” Bay, Jamaica The daytime temperatures are nice and hovering above zero, but enough was 27 degrees already with the minus double digits and the -20 something’s!!!! on March 21st. The all knowing “They” say everyone complains about the weather but no one ever does anything about it. Either that or there is nothing we can do about it. Well I say “They” are wrong on both counts. There is plenty to be done. You can build your own self-contained biosphere where you do control the weather. The problem with that is it is cost prohibitive. Biosphere 1. Earth’s life system is the only biosphere currently known. Funding for the project came primarily from the joint venture’s financial partner, Ed Bass’ Decisions Investment, and cost $200 million from 1985 to 2007, including land, support research greenhouses, test module and staff facilities. Even winning the lottery wouldn’t help. Another thing that can be done is go on holiday, i.e. change location = change the weather. You can go from -24 here to +27 in Montego Bay. That is doing something about the weather alright, but for a one week stay it will cost you at least $2,000. The only other alternative it to make a permanent move to Dominican Republic, Cuba or some other climate that stays warm throughout the year. Of course you have to put up with extreme poverty in many cases, as well as hurricanes, monsoons, tidal waves, volcano eruptions or other equally unpleasant fact of life. No matter where you live there is good and bad in the weather forecast.

VIEWPOINT

March 29, 2013

Shellbrook Chronicle

Budget not the best or worst for rural Sask. Rural Saskatchewan has certainly seen better budgets. But it has also seen worse. Let us examine today how rural Saskatchewan specifically did in the 2013-14 budget, presented last week by Finance Minister Ken Krawetz. Any such examination should still begin with agriculture, where the Saskatchewan Party government is providing a record $198.3 million for crop insurance. That said, a $52.5-million decrease in the commitment to the AgriStability Fund _ along with $10.2-million less for AgriInvest _ connotes a major shift away from enhanced payouts to deal with disasters in a year when some flooding seems a certainty. In fact, there are no specific dollars aside for flood relief anywhere in the budget _ a potential problem, given its razor-thin surplus. The government is also phasing out its support for ethanol initiatives in this budget. Spending on Saskatchewan highways will be down almost $30 million from last year _ never great news for rural Saskatchewan. Nevertheless, there is the good news of a

$63.8-million commitment to repave 280 kilometres of highway and another $63.8 million for the Regina West bypass, the Estevan bypass, passing lanes on Hwy. 10 and completion of Highway 11 twinning. MURRAY Other highway projects worth noting inMANDRYK clude: upgrading Hwy. ~ 22 from Southey to Earl Grey; upgrading of Hwy. 42 from Tuxford to Eyebrow; grading and paving of the Dalmeny access road, and; continuing work of the St. Louis Bridge. Proceeding with the previously announced new Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford may be the big item in rural health spending. However, rather than capital investments, it may be a further initiative hopefully providing more rural doctors that will emerge as the biggest health positive out of this budget. The Sask. Party government doubled its

Hoback doesn’t walk his talk on farmers Dear editor, MP Randy Hoback likes to say that he and the Conservative Party support our farmers. The facts say otherwise. This month, a new Conservative federal-provincial agricultural agreement goes into effect setting the course for farming in Canada for the next 5 years, marking an unprecedented attack on programs designed to help farmers manage their risk - backstops necessary to farmers in tough times. Among the shocking cuts to the business risk management (BRM) suite are cuts to AgriInvest, which helps cover income declines and provides funds to mitigate risks and invest in the farm, slashing its funding by 33%. More surprisingly, they also take a huge chunk out of AgriStability, which helps cover declines in producers’ average income from previous years, hacking off as much as $411 million a year, for a total cut of more than $2 billion over the 5 year program. With these cuts, the Conservatives are leaving producers more vulnerable when bad times hit – and do-

There will also be an additional $250,000 more for the Rural Family Physician Recruitment Incentive Program to encourage graduating doctors locate to rural Saskatchewan. Further wisely spent health dollars include an additional $350,000 for expansion of the Alzheimer Society’s First Link program to add cites in North Battleford, Swift Current, Estevan and Prince Albert. Also, $70.6 million is being set aside for the government to make good on its commitment to co-owned long-term care facilities in Biggar, Kelvington, Kerrobert, Kipling, Maple Creek and Prince Albert. Meanwhile, there will be $15.9 million to fulfill commitments to regional health authorities to complete facilities in Radville, Redvers, Rosetown, Shellbrook and Tisdale. Additional spending for school and postsecondary education operating budgets may have been one of the bigger disappointments in a budget that needed to cater to a growing province. Nevertheless, Martensville, Leader and Hudson Bay will see previous commitments

YOUR TWO C ENTS ~ ing so despite clearly hearing from farmers how valuable these programs are. Instead of cutting red tape – they cut all the reasonable assistance farmers rely on in times of need. These cuts to BRM come on the heels of short-sighted plans to eliminate the Agroforestry Development Centre in Indian Head and the PFR A’s Community Pasture program—which both provide essential public services for producers that don’t have viable private business models—as well as reckless cuts to food inspection, which leaves the door open to another XL Foods-like crisis. The next time you hear Mr. Hoback boast about his support for farmers, you might want to ask him about that record! Yours sincerely, Frank Valeriote, MP Liberal Party of Canada Agriculture Critic

translate into $18.7 million in funding while Langenburg and Gravelbourg will receive $1.9 million to begin planning new projects. There was also an additional $4 million for continued construction of the Southeast Regional College in Weyburn. Urban municipalities will benefit from the pre-budget announcement of 12 per cent more while rural municipalities will get an 8.5-per cent increase _ all courtesy of the sharing of a percentage point of an increasingly lucrative provincial sales tax. There will be $6.6-million more for RCMP policing and other municipal policing grants will increase by $600,000. And in recognition that a fast-growing province means an increase in family problems, there will be $800,000 more for women’s shelters, including funding for a new shelter in Melfort _ the first such new transition house in the province to be added since 1989. Overall, this austerity budget is offering less to rural Saskatchewan than it is has grown used to seeing at budget time. But rural Saskatchewan _ and the province as a whole _ have seen far worse budgets.

Chaves is calloused and insensitive to say the least. Should one have seen Harper turning cartwheels in the halls of 24 Sussex Dr. it would be no great surprise. Harper’s statement “I hope the people of Venezuela can now build for themselves a better, brighter future based on the principles of freedom, democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights”, barely contains his jubilance on Chavez’s death This from a man, who ignored the law countless times (CWB), prorogued Parliament and appointed lackey Conservative Senators whenever it suited his needs. Chavez was elected by the people of Venezuela, and in his 14 years in power used his country’s lucrative oil wealth on social programs such as state-run food markets, new public housing, free health clinics and education programs. Instead of praising Chavez’s accomplishments, Harper chose to ignore them. On the other hand, just a week previous, Harper had nothing but glowing praise for Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict), who for years harbored, protected, and condoned pedophile Priests who had molested thousands of children in their care.

Report from the Legislature

The theme of the 20132014 provincial budget is “Balanced Growth.” This year’s budget is balanced, controls spending and continues to make investments to ensure a better quality life for all Saskatchewan people. It also delivers on commitments we made in the Plan for Growth. Saskatchewan remains the only province with a balanced budget. This is key to achieving our Growth Plan goal of 1.2 million people by 2020. Through prudent management of the province’s finances, including debt reduction saving hundreds of millions of dollars in interest payments, we lay a solid foundation for the future. In the 2013-14 budget, our government continues to make investments to ensure a better quality of life for Saskatchewan people. Seniors Income Plan benefits increase to $250 a month - a 178 per cent increase since 2007. Benefits

Melfort - and increased funding for women’s shelters across the province. We are committing $70.5 million to the Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative - which will result in 7,000 additional surgeries performed this year as we work toward our goal of no one waiting more than three months for surgery by 2014. We are continuing to invest in the infrastructure a growing economy needs. The 2013-14 budget contains: • $281million for highways including work on the West Regina Bypass, Estevan Bypass, and a series of passing lanes on Highway 10 between Balgonie and Fort Qu’Appelle and $168 million to repair and upgrade existing highways; • $86.5 million for Long Term Care facilities currently under construction; and • $50 million for the new Moose Jaw hospital.

Our “Balanced for Growth” budget also contains measures to support Saskatchewan’s growing economy. For the third straight year, municipalities will receive record revenue sharing. This year’s total is $264.4 million, an increase of 108 per cent since 2007. We lowered education tax mill rates to help offset the recent property assess-

ment. With property values’ increasing by a record amount over the last four years, our government is taking action to ensure the amount collected in education property taxes remains revenue neutral this year. That being said, some property owners who saw their assessment go up more than average may still see their taxes go up. The 2013-14 budget contains $119.6 million to fund 21 ongoing major school capital projects, two new schools and 15 pre-K facilities. With a projected need identified in the Growth Plan for 60,000 more workers by 2020, we are creating more training seats for the trades and taking further action to eliminate the wait list for Adult Basic Education by 2015. Agriculture continues to play an important role in moving Saskatchewan forward. To that end, we have invested in a record $198.3 million for Crop In-

surance in the “Balanced for Growth” budget. Crop Insurance coverage levels are also a record $194 per acre – more than double what was offered in 2007. The budget also contains a record investment in agricultural research of $27.7 million and an increase of $25 million for strategic initiatives like rural water infrastructure, trade and market development and farm business management. All of these investments will help us reach our Growth Plan goals. The 2013-14 budget not only balances the books, it reflects and balances the priorities of Saskatchewan people. Through controlled spending in key areas, we are promoting opportunity and supporting society’s most vulnerable citizens. We are well-positioned to meet the challenges of growth. This budget will keep Saskatchewan moving forward.

Crop Insurance deadline March 31 Saskatchewan producers are reminded the deadline to enrol in Crop Insurance or make changes to their current contract is March 31. “We are providing record funding, record coverage levels and further program improvements to help producers mitigate risk,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said. “I strongly encourage all producers to consider Crop Insurance as part of their management plans this year, particularly with the late spring and snowfall levels throughout the province.” The 2013 Crop Insurance Program includes record funding

Coverage levels are a record $194 per acre on average, up from $174 per acre in 2012 and more than double the coverage offered in 2007.

Producers continue to have the option to supplement the Unseeded Acreage Benefit of $70 per eligible acre by purchasing either $15 or $30 per acre in additional coverage, for up to $100 per eligible acre. With record coverage and continued Crop Insurance enhancements, there will be no ad-hoc AgriRecovery Program for weather-related disasters in 2013. Producers are encouraged to contact their local Crop Insurance office about how program features and options, such as the Unseeded Acreage Buy-Up Option, can help meet their risk management needs.

Wall’s dinner was a platform of success Continued from page 1 Wall quoted Margaret Thatcher, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” End of the sentence Premiere Wall made much of explaining what the real end of their sentences are. For example, “Some people don’t think that growth is a good thing,” and that, “We don’t explain why we are focused on growth.” He answered by saying, “We want to do all these things so there can be more jobs for people. That’s not even the end of the sentence. We want this province to be the most dynamic in Canada We want this province to grow because we want a better quality of life here. We want to leave things better than we found them, for the next generation. That’s the end of that sentence.” After giving several individual examples, Wall talked about why there will not be a

second bridge in Prince Albert. He also spoke about how 44% of the workforce of Cameco consists of First Nation’s people or Metis. Locally, Wall stated, “The population of Prince Albert and surrounding RMs is up almost 5% since 2006.” Where do we go from here? Wall answered, “The go forward from here is growth. The go forward from here is ensuring we have the kind of leadership in place here in the city and in Regina that the growth compared is prevalent in all things that we continue to see. “Resource development in the north so that there is a case for infrastructure investments in the gateway to the north and the city of Prince Albert.” Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Scott Lessmeister. Dr. Stan Oleksinski introduced Premier Wall for his keynote address. Jim Miller provided the official thank you.

Some positives in budget, some things lacking The Saskatchewan Party brought down its 2013 budget last week, and it was one where agriculture saw a major positive, as well as being left to wonder about what was missing. To start, the positive came in continued research funding. The Saskatchewan Party has shown continued interest in investing general taxpayer dollars in public research for the farm sector, and that is a good plan. The Agriculture Development Fund’s (ADF) budget of $27.7 million is an increase of 36 per cent over last year. The dollars are a significant investment from a province of about one million people, and shows the government is aware that a strong agriculture sector is crucial for the overall economic health of the province. Not surprisingly Garth Patterson, Executive Director with the Western Grains Research Foundation saw the increase as a positive. “Producers will benefit from the Saskatchewan Govern-

ment’s increased commitment to research,” he said in a press release. While the WGRF is directly involved in research, Patterson is right producers should benefit from increased dollars invested in the field. So too should the overall economy since farmers spend money when they are doing well in communities across the province. CALVIN But there was also a hope the budget would more clearly address how DANIELS the province plans to deal with com~ munity pasture land. Many see such lands as there for all producers, and that if the province wants to divest itself of the land there needs to be a plan which assures it remains as pasture land for all. There are those who also note the lands are important in

terms of wildlife habitat since it is not disturbed by cultivation, and that the land resource needs to be protected for that reason as well. No plan was in the budget as New Democrat Finance Critic Trent Wotherspoon pointed out in a post budget conference call with media last week. He said the government failed "to recognize the value of these pastures to producers" in the budget. Wotherspoon also noted there was no plan in the budget to address the future of the former PFRA tree nursery in the province, a facility which dates back to before Saskatchewan was a province. Certainly against the major budget costs of health care, education, debt servicing, agriculture is a minor line in terms of finances. Yet its impact as a sector remains a major one in Saskatchewan. The recognition of that through research investment is positive, the lack of leadership in other areas is troubling, leaving this very much a 50/50 budget for agriculture.

Wheat Growers purpose wheat classification model The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association is proposing a new wheat classification model to give prairie farmers greater and faster access to new wheat varieties. The new model would preserve the very best of today’s wheat class system, and yet give seed developers greater opportunity to bring new wheat varieties to market. The model is patterned after the wheat classification system that was implemented in Australia in 2011. “We need to build on the advantages of our present variety registration system and work toward giving prairie farmers even faster access to new genetics,” says Levi Wood, President of the Wheat Growers. “This new classification model will give wheat seed developers a much more transparent and predictable registration process.” Under the proposed model, seed developers would register a new variety and then submit the variety to three years of quality testing, after which a wheat classification panel would determine whether the variety meets the quality parameters of one of western Canada’s existing wheat classes (e.g. CWRS, CPS, etc.). However, the decision on whether to introduce a new variety to the marketplace would rest solely with the seed developer. To enhance speed to market, a seed developer would be permitted to bring a registered variety to market in advance of classification providing the variety is sold as feed, or on a

spec basis. This would ensure farmers and buyers have immediate access to the best new varieties. As part of the new wheat classification model, the Wheat Growers are proposing that merit testing of disease and agronomic traits no longer be a pre-condition for registration. Instead, we are proposing a voluntary industry-led performance trial system be implemented, similar to the system in place for canola. “This new model will attract much-needed investment in

wheat breeding research in Western Canada,” says Wood. “It will give farmers immediate access to new, more profitable wheat varieties, and allow us to make the decision on which varieties are right for our farms.” For further comment, and a copy of the Wheat Grower proposal, please contact: Levi Wood President (306) 535-2997

Province buys 2.3 million tress to renew forests

The Ministry of Environment has signed a contract with a Saskatchewan nursery to grow and store 2.3 million tree seedlings, which will be planted in 2014 to renew the province’s publicly owned forests. PRT Growing Services will grow the pine and spruce seedlings this year and store them for the winter. In the spring of 2014, the trees will be planted in various locations as part of the province of Saskatchewan’s forest renewal program. PRT operates a forest nursery north of Prince Albert. “Since 1997, the province’s renewal program has been proud to plant trees

grown by PRT,” Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said. “By investing in forest renewal, we are investing in the long-term health of Saskatchewan’s forests and the significant industry that they suppor.” Since 1939, the provincial government has planted about 168 million trees to renew provincial forests. In Saskatchewan, forest companies must renew all of the areas they harvest, under current licence agreements. The province’s renewal program addresses harvesting that is outside the areas covered by these agreements or that predates them.

The ministry buys trees from PRT each year under a long-term agree-

By Tom Pierson When the Rosthern Wheat Kings came to Town March 22nd, they came to get the League Championship. After defeating the Elks 4-2, they were presented with the league cup by Irwin Dirks. Dirks, who has been involved with the league for 42 years, presented the Cup on behalf of League President Ray Baumann. Play was lackluster to start the game. There was no sense of urgency on anyone’s part. All the players seemed to be taking it as a nothing game in the middle of the season. Body checking began five minutes in and both teams took turns going on the offensive, logging their fair share of ice time in the other team’s end. The Elks had the advantage in puck time and scoring chances, thanks to two power plays. The period ended in a scoreless tie. The Elks enjoyed a shots on goal lead of 17-11. Rosthern started the second period strong and enjoyed a power play for their efforts, keeping their momentum going. Kelly Guard made some good stops to keep his team in the game. As soon as that power play was over, the Elks reasserted themselves, drawing a penalty by the Wheat Kings. Then the Elks were handed a two man advantage for 50 seconds or less. With only two seconds remaining in the first penalty, the Elks found the twine at 10:27. Josh Peterson scored from Lyndon Leard and Chris Thompson. Things were looking up for the Elks, who were down 2-0 in the series, but up 1-0 in the game. Rosthern’s Brock Harrison erased the Elks lead at 5:45. At the end of a long rush, Harrison cut in front of Kelly Guard and the puck found the back of the net. Michael Epp and Ryan Aebig assisted. Less than a minute later, The Wheat Kings went up 2-0 by way of a power play goal by Aaron Starr. His shot from the slot through a screen completed the scoring in the second period. The goal was unassisted. Shellbrook still held a commanding lead in shots on goal 36-27. Down by a goal to start the third period, the Elks were able to crack Dan Bauer in the Wheat Kings net to tie the game at 16:46. Hugh Hamilton stepped across the blue line and stepped into a wicked slap shot. No chance for Bauer. Shane Callaghan and Chris Thompson assisted on the goal. Again, it only took Rosthern a minute to answer with the game winning goal. Aaron Starr broke into the Elks zone and fired a wrist shot that was stopped by Guard. Unfortunately for him, Starr got his own rebound and buried it. A few moments later, the Wheat Kings scored an insurance goal on the power play. Mick Pawlyshyn scored from Brock Harrison and Brody Zuk. The Elks decided to play desperate hockey in the last eight minutes, coming close several times. But, Bauer was not in the mood to let any more pucks get past him. And that’s how the series sweep ended, with a 4-2 win by Rosthern.

Irma Brunsdon traded her bass guitar for a saxophone, while Don Brunsdon traded his violin for the bass guitar.

Kerri English’s students played a tune before all joined together at the end.

The LPs performed a few very inspiring pieces. The LPs consist of Pat Sonntag, Linda Bater, Lynn Harper, Leslee Whalley.

After the regular list of performances had finished, a jam session broke out.

A variety of talent entertains

Don Brunsdon’s fingers can still fly on his violin at 92. He was a joy to watch and it was a treat to listen to his music.

Doug Schmirler became Leonard Cohen for a little while.

Continued from page 1 Despite the age of the skit, it seemed as fresh as if this were the first time it was performed. Happy Hearts Chairperson Karisa Klaassen had this to say after the performance, “We were thrilled to have them (Golden Host Players) doing all of this work for us. We were kind of floored that they would even consider doing that for us.” Hoping to build in the spring of this year, Klaassen was happy to report that with the variety show, “We raised $1,591! That’s incredible. That includes the $170 from the Mayor’s tie. That was a great idea.” How does the Mayor’s tie fit in to this you may ask. Pastor Dave Whalley thought it would be good fun to raise money by cutting Mayor George Tomporowski’s lively green St. Paddy’s shamrock tie, but only if more than $50 could be collected. With a quick whip round the theatre, they managed to raise $170 for the cause. True to his word amid a big production, snip snip snip and there were now two pieces of tie instead of one! With the official floor plan in hand, it is time to get quotes form contractors and trades people. The cost is estimated at $500,000, and government grants totalling over $130,000 have already been received.

One of the ways of bringing down the cost is the inkind donation of labour and products. The engraved brick campaign is in full swing. You can purchase a 4x8 brick for $75, an 8x8 brick for $150 or an art engraved brick for $250. Fundraisers on the way include a golf tournament and a Ladies Nite Out. Other are

being planned as well. Mayor George Tomporowski, a good sport, said, “A defining trait of a community is the willingness of its volunteers.” After thanking the Golden Host Players and the entertainers, Tomporowski said, “A project like this is so vital.” He was talking about how young families are important to a community, and

encouraged everyone to support Happy Hearts. To find out more about the project and the group, Klaassen said, “We have a FaceBook page that has the latest information about our project as well as information on all of our upcoming events and fundraisers. www.facebook.com/ShellbrookHappyHearts

Not your usual tie clip! Pastor Dave Whalley had a collection at the The Old and the Young Variety Show at the Shellbrook Theatre March 17th. The deal he made with the audience was that if he could raise more than $50 for the Happy Hearts Childcare Centre, he was going to clip Mayor George Tomporowski’s tie. $170 was raised, so as you can see, Pastor Dave went snip, snip on the Photos by Tom Pierson Mayor’s tie.

Be prepared for spring flooding

SaskPower reminds all customers to keep electrical and gas safety in mind as the snow melts. Weather and precipitation forecasts indicate that flooding will likely be a problem in parts of the province this spring. How to prepare before a flood: - Disconnect all outdoor electrical devices that are in danger of being submerged and turn off breakers to outdoor plugs. - Hire a Saskatchewan licensed gas contractor to move gas appliances that might become submerged. - Unplug electrical appliances and turn off breakers in the basement if water is entering your property, but never enter an area if electrical receptacles are under water or stand in water to operate breakers. Call SaskPower at 310-2220. - Shut off the electrical and gas supply to all natural gas and propane appliances. If water is entering your property and

Emergency planning crucial for those with special needs While disasters and emergencies affect everyone, the impact on people with special needs is often compounded by their reliance on electrical power, elevators, and accessible transportation – all of which can be compromised in emergency situations. • Create a personal support network of at least three people that can help you in an emergency situation. Ensure they are aware of your needs, such as prescription medication and how to operate any special needs equipment. • Make an emergency contact list with the names and phone numbers of your personal support network, doctors, neighbours, etc. Keep a copy of this list handy and share it with your support network. • Familiarize yourself with all escape routes and location of emergency doors and exits in your home. • Have a panic button installed in the building where you work or live so that in the event of an emergency you can notify others of your whereabouts and that you need assistance. • Create a basic emergency kit. A list of kit items is available at www.GetPrepared.ca. • Tailor your kit to meet your needs. You may wish to include things such as: special devices like canes, walkers, lightweight manual wheelchairs, hearing aids, breathing apparatus, blood glucose monitoring device, plus food and other important items for your pet or service animal. • List of all medical supplies and equipment related to your age or medical condition.

An investment of a lifetime Owning your own home is an exciting proposition and an achievable goal for most Canadians. The number one reason many become homeowners is pride of homeownership and the stability and security that comes with it. Buying a home can also be a solid investment and provide tax benefits. In Canada, you are not taxed on any investment gains made on the sale of your primary residence. So, for example, if you buy your home for $200,000 and sell it 5 years later for $250,000, you do not have to pay income tax on the $50,000 you earned from the sale. Another advantage is each time you make a mortgage payment, you are putting a portion towards the principal balance of your mortgage, which builds equity in your home. This is a better use of

trocution is the second most common cause of death during floods after drowning. Cutting power to flooded areas Even if your property isn’t flooded, your power may still be turned off for safety reasons. SaskPower must cut power to any area that has experienced flooding to minimize the risk of electrical shock or electrocution. Cutting power to a flooded area ensures our electrical equipment that may be under water is not a safety threat to the public and our employees who arrive on scene. This allows us to restore power safely, and as quickly as possible. Cutting power also protects our electrical equipment from water damage, which would delay our power restoration efforts.

Canadian curling elite has fresh new faces As Canada’s best curlers prepare to decide eight months from now which teams to send to Sochi, Russia in 2014 for the Winter Olympics, a changing of the curling guard might be happening right before our eyes. The 2013 Canadian Scotties was won not by the favourite, Jennifer Jones, or another household name, Kelly Scott, but by 23-year-old Rachel Homan of Ontario. Two weeks later, the Tim Hortons Brier was held in Edmonton and while the precompetition question was Martin, Stoughton, Howard, or maybe Gushue?, the answer turned out to be Brad Jacobs, 27, of Northern Ontario. Homan and Jacobs? This was Wayne Gretzky not winning a scoring title in the 1980s. This was Secretariat showing up as an also-ran in 1973, or Babe Ruth popping out to short in 1927. Brad Jacobs? Rachel Homan? Really? Curling fans were somewhat aware of Jacobs before

he won the Brier by hammering Manitoba’s Stoughton in the final. This year was his fourth consecutive Brier (with one playoff appearance to his credit), but he and his muscular crew of third Ryan Fry, second E.J. Harndon and lead Ryan Harndon (Jacobs’s cousins) were ranked no better than fifth going into the week-long event. One would think winning the Brier would make Jacobs a favourite for the aforementioned Olympic berth, to be decided this December in Winnipeg, but in actuality, the Brier champs have yet to nail down a spot in the eight-team competition. Only three men’s rinks — Martin, Stoughton and Howard, who else? — have qualified so far. Winning the world championship, which starts later this week in Victoria, would go a long way to putting the Jacobs foursome into the Trials, but otherwise, he’ll have to win a couple more bonspiels this spring, or win the single berth available from the Pre-Quali-

Fresh ideas for spring With springtime on the horizon, and old man winter’s scorn fading into the rear view mirror, cleaning and fresh start plans are top of mind. However, sometimes, even with the good intentions, we have trouble getting the best laid plans off the ground. While you may not get your attic entirely cleared, here’s a list of simple and helpful ideas that you can put into place anytime: • Save more paper and have less clutter: Sometimes the smallest steps can go a long way. By moving to electronic bills, like Paperless Billing from Enbridge, you can decrease the amount of paper coming through your mail slot each month and decrease your paperwork and filing tasks at home. • Use energy more efficiently: From heating your home on that cold night to warming the water for your morning shower, natural gas provides great value for your energy dollars. But we’re always looking for ways to take dollars even further, and using energy more efficiently is a great place to start. Try reducing your home’s thermostat by 3oC at night or taking shorter showers. • Keep safety top of mind: The start of spring is a great time to renew your commitment to safety. Set reminders to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms whenever the clocks change and ensure heating elements and appliances are turned off when they’re not in use.

Raymond Bold BOLD - Raymond May 27, 1920 ~ March 5, 2013 Raymond was born and raised on the family farm in the Marcelin area. He attended Crown Hill Public School for eight years and then he was needed to help on the family farm. He served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 4 years and was discharged in March of 1946. For the rest of that year he worked out for different farmers and then started farming on the family farm. He also rented other land and eventually bought a neighboring quarter of land. He farmed until 1980 and then retired from farming and rented out the land. He remained on the farm until 2001. He sold the land and his house and moved into the Town of Blaine Lake and took up residence at the Seniors Lodge. Raymond enjoyed playing horseshoes in tournaments, Kaiser, Crib and Solitaire. He also spent many hours watching sports on TV. Of course he was an avid Rider fan and he won a couple nice prizes from their lottery. Raymond also was a giving man and made donations to many organizations. He enjoyed traveling before his move into town. Some of his travels took him to Florida, Barbados, Hawaii, Mexico and Arizona. He also traveled with his nephew Brian Porter to Europe to explore his family history in 1990 and 1991. He is predeceased by: his parents, Milton and Ellen (Colcuiu) Bold; sisters, Mary (William) Porter, Anne (Steve)Witol , Elizabeth (Alvin ) Briggs, and Catherine (Ted) Kartes; brother, John (Helen) Bold; brothers- in- law, William Porter, Steve Witol, Frank Bobyk , Ted Kartes, and Alvin Briggs; sisters-in-law, Helen (Pampu) Bold and Florence (Warbin) Bold.

PRAISE & WORSHIP ~ Regular services, Sunday school and

Members of two local Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign groups met with staff from the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) who are interviewing for a book documenting the campaign. From left to right, Alma Newman and Monica Bayda (Prince Albert), Graham Coultas (SLF), Pat Grayston, Merle Roberts, Nancy Carswell (Shellbrook), Kellie James (SLF). The SLF is also conducting interviews in Africa.

Grandmothers interviewed for International book The Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) is writing a book to document the evolution, accomplishments, meaning and impact of its phenomenally successful Grandmothers to Grandmothers (G2G) Campaign. Through the G2G, Canadian grandmothers and grandothers have raised awareness of and funds for African grandmothers who are caring for millions of children orphaned by AIDS. Members of the Shellbrook and Prince Albert G2G groups were recently interviewed by an SLF team for the book. SLF team members Graham Coultas’s and Kellie James’s enthusiasm for their work was not reduced by the day’s perilous road conditions. Coultas explained that the goal of the book is to tell the story of the G2G through interviews and photographs documenting a myriad of voices and representations. There were six grandmothers in the interview; Nancy Carswell, Pat Grayston and Merle Roberts from the Shellbrook group, and Monica Bayda and Alma Newman from the Prince Albert group. One of the first interview questions was “Why did you join?” Roberts said she joined, “Because of the grandmothers. I couldn’t imagine dealing with that number of children with so little. How do they do it when they themselves are impoverished to begin with? I really admire their resourcefulness.” Others agreed and added that it was a tragedy that these grandmothers had not only lost their own children but as they are parenting, they had also lost their grandparenthood. Carswell said, “Not that I expect any grandmother to sit in a rocking chair but I think it is unfair that these grandmothers do not have that choice.” Pat Grayston has attended two Grandmother Gatherings, one in Africa and one in Toronto. She was asked what stood out in her mind. She said it was the greeting at the church hall after visiting Tetani, a nursing center funded by the SLF, in Pretoria, “As we walked into the hall we were met with a joyous song of thanks; we were hugged and kissed by 60 plus Praetorian grandmothers whose grandchild’s life and education was thanks to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. We Canadian Grandmothers were a symbol of the

hard work that Canadian grandmothers do to raise funds to support the grassroot projects funded by the Stephen Lewis Foundation. We were told, ‘It is a miracle that grandmothers from a country so far away care so much for our African grandchildren, for children they have never meet or saw in a photograph. You do it from your heart.’” The G2G is now in its sixth year and has raised $16.5 million to support community-based organizations in subSaharan Africa in the grips of the AIDS pandemic. In the interview, members mentioned the trust they had in the SLF transparent selection and support processes of grassroots projects in Africa. They also mentioned concerns that the medical breakthroughs in AIDS research will give Canadians the impression that the AIDS problem is solved. The breakthroughs do not “retire” the grandmothers who feed, clothe, shelter, or educate the children orphaned by the pandemic. Additionally, without the funds to purchase expensive AIDS medications, those children born infected with AIDS are doomed to live with it for life and many will not see their second birthday. Interviews for the book will also be conducted in Africa in order to represent the diversity and dynamism in projects run by and for grandmothers and the children in their care on the continent. The interview follows a sell-out Heart to Heart Tea in February for the Prince Albert group. They are also excited about their annual Arioso Concert on April 20. Tickets are available at Beth’s Yarn 764-6910. “Grand” cookies available at intermission. Proceeds from the Shellbrook Golden Host Players upcoming performances, “Almost the Bride of Dracula” and “The Audition” on April 26 and 27, will be donated to the G2G Campaign. The PA group will be on hand at intermission with fresh “Grand” cookies as most Shellbrook G4G members are onstage or behind the scenes. The Shellbrook Grandmothers for Grandmothers group is ad hoc and welcomes grandmothers and grandothers. Their contact person is Pat Grayston at 306-747-3330.

Protect yourself from Romance Fraud March is Fraud Awareness Month in Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan RCMP Federal Investigations – Economic Crime Section, Saskatchewan Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority and the Saskatoon and Regina Police Services are joining forces to educate the public about the types of frauds investigators are seeing across the province. What is Romance Fraud? A romance fraud is a confidence trick involving feigned romantic intentions towards a victim, gaining her or his affection and then using that goodwill to commit fraud. Fraudulent acts may involve gaining access to the victim’s money, bank accounts, credit cards, passports, or email accounts. It can also include getting the victims to commit financial fraud on behalf of the suspect. Who are the potential victims of a romance fraud? It can be anyone, male or female, young or old. The con men/women are targeting single men and women who are looking for love. These fraudsters are adept at using any weak-

ness they can find to their advantage. They might use poetry or gifts to lure you in or they might promise you marriage and an end to your loneliness. Once they have you under their spell, they will try to reach for your wallet, all the time declaring their “undying love” for you. How to protect yourself against romantic fraud: Acknowledge that you could be a potential target. Who is the most vulnerable? Someone who thinks that it can’t happen to them. If you are honest, open and try to see the best in people, don’t change who you are, but recognize that you could be a con artist’s perfect victim. A con person can be so persuasive that intuition alone may not provide a loud enough alert. Make sure you talk to trusted friends and family about new relationships, introduce your new “friend” to them and ask for their feedback. They may see things that you are blind to because they can be more objective. Recognize your own weak spots, such as a great desire to be in a relationship. If a strong social, sexual or

financial relationship is starting to develop, be cynical. Where do we find these con men/ women? Perpetrators of romance fraud can appear anywhere: at work, on vacation, online or even at your place of worship. Be especially cautious of men and women who have no apparent connections with relatives, friends or colleagues. Ask yourself, “Why are these men/women single? Where are their commitments?” Other red flags to watch out for: The relationship takes off like a rocket. He/she overwhelms you with attention, eye contact, gifts and promises of adventure. He/she keeps you on a short leash with frequent phone calls. He/she meets your relatives/ friends but you never meet his/hers due to many different excuses. He/she becomes evasive or testy when questioned. Your intuition tells you that he’s/ she’s too good to be true. He/she asks for access to your financial informa-

Community Health Nurse Central/Northern Saskatchewan Health Canada is proud to be named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2012!

Health Canada, First Nations and Inuit Health, is hiring

tion or credit cards. He/she asks you to sell your house or other belongings so that you can “buy a new house together” Reporting a fraud If you suspect you’re being conned, end the relationship immediately. Change your locks and don’t confront him/her.

To apply visit: http://jobs-emplois.gc.ca/index-eng.htm

Overcome that reluctance; you owe it to yourself and to anyone else who might become this fraudster’s next victim. Police will not judge you and will do all they can to investigate. Lying about love is not a crime. But, if your con man/ woman defrauds or steals from you

or even if you’re not sure a crime has been committed, contact police. You can also call The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501. To better educate yourself with this scam and others, please visit www. rcmp -grc.gc.ca/ scams or www.antifraudcentre.ca
