Shellbrook Town Council approves budget The Shellbrook Town Council approved the 2013 budget during a meeting on May 13. This year’s budget turned out to be lower than last year’s, which contained a number of specific large expenses. “Our budget was substantially higher last year because of the waste water treatment plant and . . . (because) we were digging a well,” Town Administrator Kelly Hoare said. The absence of these big projects has resulted in the revenue required to meet budgetary needs going from about 3.3 million in 2012 to about 2.9 million in 2013. While none of the new expenses are on the same large scale as those of 2012, there are a still a few projects of note in the works. For one, a new splash park is being constructed at the local pool. The price tag for the project is about $83,000, with half of the funding coming from the federal government. Also, a new Scout building is going up in the park. Council first looked at renovating the old building, but when potential costs started rising into the $15,000 range, they decided instead to demolish the old, unsafe building and to build a new one. The money budgeted for this project is about $25,000. The future purchase of a dump truck also shows up on the budget this year. Council had budgeted $25,000 for the truck in 2012, but after a major water break and a revamped budget, they never got around to purchasing one. They have rolled that expense to this year and increased the budgeted amount to $50,000 for this item. Council has also passed a resolution to enter into a six-month agreement with EPS Management Services Inc., who will be responsible for bylaw enforcement in Shellbrook. Continued on page 12

Government ads fail to inform taxpayers In an article that appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press on May 7, the Canadian Press’s Bruce Cheadle stated that the federal government has now spent over $100 million in advertising costs in order to promote the Economic Action Plan (EAP). According to its slogan, the EAP’s purpose is to provide Canadians with jobs, growth and prosperity. The television ads show Canadians experiencing these three things in an uplifting and positive way. Cheadle states, however, that Treasury Board guidelines dictate that government ads funded by the taxpayers are supposed to inform citizens

about programs and services. These ads do not accomplish this goal, as Prime Minister Stephen Harper admits. Harper claims that the purpose of the ads is instead to highlight the confidence of Canadians and the direction that the country is headed. Cheadle goes on to quote Mathieu Ravignat, the NDP Treasury Board critic. “Government is not a product to be sold. Ads shouldn’t be selling a product, they should be informing Canadians.” Continued on page 6

Saying goodbye to Parkland Terrace

It is hard to believe this will be the last submission from Parkland Terrace as we know it now. We have been home to many wonderful people over the years. Friendships, connections and caring have been cherished; we have loved and experienced many losses. As we prepare to move into a new chapter of care we will remember all the wonderful years we have had together. After many hours of fundraising, planning, and building, we anxiously await the

moving dates into our new home. Many of us and our family members will have had the grand tour and although it seems overwhelming, we are excited! We wish to thank the many people who have made this possible and continue to add to the quality of life of our community. The Shellbrook and District Health Services Project Committee along with the support of many have volunteered countless hours to fundraising.

The Parkland Terrace Foundation Incorporated is a group of individuals who assist in enhancing the quality of life of our residents by allocating funds from gifts “in Memorial’s” or “Donations”. Most recently three new flat screen televisions, one for each house in our new home, were approved. Previously the Foundation has supported our home by funding lifts, slings, specialty chairs, tubs, outdoor fencing, sensory/mental stimulation items, and the list goes on. We are also fortunate to access services from the Health Care Auxiliary for numerous volunteer opportunities like resident excursions and special events. Providing the extras such as flowers, decorations and gifts help to make special memories for celebrations like Mother’s and Father’s Day, Christmas, Halloween, etc. The Auxiliary also operates the tuck shop at the hospital, which is a service open to make purchases from. The group meets every second month, new members are welcome. If you wish to support the Health Care Auxiliary, Parkland Terrace Foundation or Shellbrook and District Health Services Project income tax receipts can be issued. The packing and sorting has begun. Recreation opportunities are on a slowdown in order to assist with the enormous job of preparing. Family members are encouraged to pick up moving information updates which can be found in the family mailboxes at our home. In order to bid farewell to Parkland Terrace we will be hosting a “CLOSING CER-

EMONY” and POT LUCK BBQ, with the meat supplied. Both current and previous family members, staff, and volunteers are welcome to attend Monday, May 27th, 2013 from 3:00-5:30. We ask for you to consider sharing a story, tidbit, music piece, special memory or such. The 10 minute time frame signup sheet is located on the Recreation room door, drop in and add your name! If you are a PAPHR registered volunteer we invite you to help with the transition. We are looking for help with directing people throughout the Parkland Integrated Health Facility (home and hospital). We are recruiting one to one volunteers to assist residents on the day of the move. Please contact Trina at 306-747-4292 if you are available to help on any or all of the following dates: May 29, 30, and 31. Complete descriptions of where help is needed will be provided once a list of volunteers is compiled. Did you know Woodland Bus Association offers special transportation services for members of our community? If you are interested in booking this service or becoming a SGI registered driver please call Trina at 306-747-4292 or Grant Martin at 306-7473648 for more information. We will be in full operation and open to the public June 3rd, 2013. We look forward to settling in and enjoying all our new home has to offer!

Kinsmen donate to park

The local Kinsmen Club recently cashed in on a large collection of recyclable bottles and cans that had been deposited into donation bins around town. Due to the large number of donations, the Kinsmen asked the local Kinettes to help with the sorting of the materials. As a result, the group decided to donate all of the acquired funds to the park upgrade project, which the Kinettes are chairing. The total haul, which came from about six months of collecting, was $1300. Photographed are Robert Chuback, Kinsmen Treasurer; Tasha Cyr, President of the Kinettes; Brad Dupuis, Kinsmen Vice President; and future Kinette Izabelle. The Kinsmen would like to announce that they would prefer it if everyone refrained from depositing milk containers into their bins. There is no money for milk container returns and their presence takes up space and drastically slows down the sorting process. The continued donation of bottles and cans is appreciated. All of the money from these returns goes directly back into the community.

On and off duty members along with detachment staff and auxiliary members all worked together to make the event a success.

You walked to school, uphill both ways!...Do your kids? Saskatchewan in motion is not surprised by the grades in this year’s Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth. The Report Card released earlier today assigned a “D” grade for active transportation, stating that 62% of Canadian youth, aged five to 17, use only inactive modes of transportation to get to and from school. According to data collected from 10 active transportation projects implemented by in motion, Saskatchewan children and youth are on par with national averages. The pilot projects utilized a number of methods to determine student transportation methods and family attitudes toward active transportation. The majority of families lived within 1.5 kilometres of school, however 36% of students were driven to school, 26% rode the bus and 38% walked. “Our pilots found that in comparison to children who are

driven to school, children who walk report feeling happier and excited and also less tired and less rushed,” says Marnie Sinclair, Community Mobilization Manager, Saskatchewan in motion. The top three reasons parents reported driving their kids to school are convenience, weather and distance from home. Less than 15% of Saskatchewan children and youth are getting the more than 60 minutes of daily physical activity they need,” says Cathie Kryzanowski, General Manager, Saskatchewan in motion. “Walking to school is one of the easiest ways to increase activity levels, and the benefits are significant”. Families can learn more about active transportation and other ways to inspire kids to move more by visiting saskatchewaninmotion.ca.

OPINION www.shellbrookchronicle.com

May 24, 2013

One Person’s Trash . . . When something is no longer useful to us, we get rid of it. We take things out to the curb, put them up for sale, hock them or give them away. It only makes sense. Why hold on to something when it no longer serves a purpose? Objects clutter and take up space, so we dispose of them to make room for something new. I think that most of us find, however, that some things are easier to part with than others. I was listening to CBC Radio recently and I learned about a musical group from Iceland called the Apparat Organ Quartet. They play a unique brand of music that involves numerous synthesizers and some percussion, but what’s interesting about the band is their affinity for old, outdated instruments. JON In fact, they have struck a deal SVEC with the sanitation department in their hometown, and if an old ~ musical instrument is ever disReporter carded, they get a phone call and first crack at the merchandise. They then take the instrument, perform the necessary repairs or updates, and often use the device on their next album. Just another example of a seemingly useless object finding a purpose based on a simple change of scenery. Other things seem more likely to find their way into new homes once discarded. Cast-off books, for example, often turn up somewhere else. They end up in libraries or used bookstores or our own personal, dusty shelves. They seem to accumulate life every time they change hands. They fill with inscriptions and notes; corners of pages crease to mark I think that pauses. Clothes seem to change hands often as well. Passed down most of us or sold, they too carry with them traces of former owners. Scents and find spills and stains, they can remind us of relatives who have passed or offer that some questions of lives lived by strangers. Certain things remain ingrained things are in the fibers wash after wash after wash. easier to I used to know someone who buried things. Sometimes it was just part with a small piece of equipment that no longer worked, but he also buried than others. big things, like cars. He would bring in someone with a backhoe, select a spot on his farm, and have a massive hole dug for the car to be buried in. I’m not sure why he did it. Perhaps he couldn’t bear to part with those cars. We have all felt sentimental for such things. We experience significant moments with a certain object present, and that object begins to embody some of the emotions that went with the experience. And to hold on to those cars might have been just as difficult—to watch them sit and rust and deteriorate, things that were once so powerful and exuded such grace. Perhaps he simply couldn’t make up his mind, couldn’t decide whether he should sell the usable parts or put the car out to pasture, and so while he tried to figure it out he would just bury the cars for safekeeping. I’m not exactly sure why he did it, and now I’ll never get the chance to ask him. It’s probably a good thing that we are able to stay so detached from material objects. We all know that these are not the important things, though sometimes we forget it. But sometimes these unimportant objects can cling to something worthwhile, perhaps something that’s gone, and in these objects we can find a sort of comfort that’s hard to throw away.

Shellbrook Chronicle

Wall must do moreon carbon capture There is no question that Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall was where he should have been in the final days of the spring legislative sitting ... even if that place was nowhere near the legislature or even in the country. Wall spent much of last week of the legislative sitting promoting what he called the province’s “game-changing carbon capture technology” at the annual carbon capture and storage (CCS) conference in Pittsburgh. Of course, some will question the validity of such trips ... and not without valid reason. The Premier’s last U.S. trip to Washington earlier in the year to promote the oilsands and sway President Barack Obama’s approval of the Keystone XL pipeline was of questionable value. For starters, Wall should have gone down with Alberta Premier Alison Redford, whose province has the biggest stake in the oilsands. Having two provincial premiers there at the same time would have been a more effective lobby. Second, Wall’s courting of mostly Republican politicians that don’t especially get along with Obama had many inside Ottawa worried he may have been do-

ing more harm than good. However, a U.S. business conference on carbon capture is different. Wall should be there because Saskatchewan should have a leading role. MURRAY SaskPower is hoping by next year to MANDRYK start capturing as ~ much as 90 per cent of the CO2 emissions from the Boundary Dam power station near for enhanced oil recovery in the nearby Bakken Play oilfields. The technology Wall is using is something that can be sold to what Wall described as the “large players” at the Pittsburgh conference. The problem, however, is that Wall must do more that talk the talk to the Americans. He and government have to walk the walk on carbon capture at home. And that hasn’t been happening this year. It’s centrepiece research project _ the University of Regina’s IPAC-CO2 project

Government leaves us flying blind Dear editor, Canadian taxpayers are now paying more for less thanks to MP Randy Hoback and the Conservative Party’s costly changes to our national census. The results are in and their decision to eliminate the mandatory long-form census has produced much lower-quality data that will often not be useable at the local level. In fact, Statistics Canada withheld data on over 1,100 Canadian municipalities, including Beaver Flat, because the numbers were just too unreliable. The government spent an extra $30 million to collect this inaccurate data compared to the traditional, proven census. What a waste! How will a community know where a food bank is needed if we don’t know which neighbourhoods have the most poverty? How will school boards know where adult language training is most needed without knowing where immigrants are settling? We just don’t know. The errors in the data will only get worse over time. At least this time Statistics Canada can use the last full census as an anchor to correct some of the problems.

that was to provide guidelines for safe carbon capture and storage _ was wound down last month. Wall explained that IPAC-CO2 had simply completed its work. In reality, the federal/provincial/private sector project has been plagued with controversy _ mostly, involving over-billing and conf licts of interest involving other companies with close ties to principal players in IPAC-CO2. This is not helpful, given that carbon capture technology is already taking it on the chin from critics as unproven with potentially worrisome consequences. Adding to Wall’s problem selling Saskatchewan CCS to the Americans _ again, a laudable goal because of U.S. concerns about Canada’s “dirty oil _ is the fact that CCS development in Saskatchewan is playing second-fiddle to projects in Alberta and elsewhere. While Alberta has also seen two of its four private-sector CCS projects _ TransAlta Corp.’s Pioneer project and the Swan Hills Synfuels LP synthetic gas plant _ because of economic feasible concerns, the province remains committed to CCS in a big way. Alberta Energy Minister Ken Hughes

YOUR TWO C ENTS ~ Next time, that option won’t do much good. The problem is spreading: governments and the private sector use data from the census to adjust their surveys if a group’s response rate is low. Now all these other statistics will be less reliable. Mr. Hoback and the Conservatives are asking us to start making big, expensive decisions blindly, without the basic data that is essential to good planning. And they’re charging us more to do it. It’s irresponsible and we’re paying the price. Yours sincerely, Geoff Regan, MP Liberal Party of Canada Industry Critic

said earlier this year his province would maintain its $1.3-billion commitment to its two remaining private sector projects, including one touted as the “TransCanada Highway” for carbon dioxide. Because of this, it’s Alberta now getting most of the federal support for CCS. The federal government was clearly unhappy about the mess at IPAC-CO2. And it also balked at Wall’s proposal a couple years ago for a joint MontanaSaskatchewan CCS pilot project. Moreover, Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently announced a $4.7-million CO2 Solutions Inc. for a project pioneering the use of enzymes to scrub CO2 from the exhausts of natural-gas-fired steam boilers used to free the bitumen from the oilsands. The project is based in _ of all places _ Quebec City. In fact, Harper’s recently announced $82 million for 55 clean energy projects _ several of which advanced CCS technology. None were Saskatchewan-based. With oil and coal so critical to the Saskatchewan economy _ especially the rural economy _ Wall needs to be promoting Saskatchewan CCS elsewhere. But more needs to be happening at home.

Report from the Legislature

Our government has a strong record of keeping promises – doing the things we said we would. We did it consistently during our first term, and continue to do so. I am happy to report that during the justcompleted spring session of the Legislature, we honoured several commitments we made in our Growth Plan. We announced our sixth consecutive balanced budget – a budget that controlled spending while making important investments in health, education, infrastructure and support for people with disabilities We remain committed to making Saskatchewan the best place in Canada to live for people with disabilities. During the spring session of the Legislature, we announced the elimination of the 440-person waitlist for people requiring specialized, residential, and/or day programs to meet their needs. In addition to serving all 440 people on the list, another 215 Community Living clients beyond the original waitlist have been served. This was a commit-

ment we made in 2008 and represents the largest investment in Saskatchewan history in support of people with intellectual disabilities. Less than a week later, we announced that the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) program had achieved a significant milestone. SAID is now providing more than 10,000 Saskatchewan people with long-term and enduring disabilities a better quality of life through the provision of an income sup-

plement that allows them to live with a greater measure of dignity and independence. Through initiatives such as these, our government is taking action to use the benefits of growth to improve the quality of life for all Saskatchewan people. Other highlights of the spring session included: • The new Saskatchewan Employment Act, which consolidates 12 previously existing pieces of labour legislation into one act that protects workers, promotes growth and increases accountability; • The announcement of four new private liquor stores – 2 in Saskatoon and 2 in Regina – all of which will open over the next year; • New laws to improve safety in highway construction zones; and • The introduction of the Saskatchewan Advantage Grant for Education Savings (SAGES) to help families save for their children’s post-secondary education. The big story this spring though wasn’t what was

happening in Regina – it was the weather. From brutal spring snowstorms to the potential for significant flooding, Saskatchewan people came together in support of one another. As a government, we’d like to thank all the highways workers for keeping roads safe and community leaders, government officials and volunteers for the long hours they put in to deal with the flooding threat. The true spirit of the people of Saskatchewan shone through yet again. So those were the bright

spots of the spring session. For the lone not-so-bright spot, you only had to look to the other side of the Legislative Assembly. The opposition, under new leader Cam Broten, got off a to a rough start, when the Saskatoon MLA re-affirmed his support for the NDP’s disastrous 2011 election platform, including a concept soundly rejected by Saskatchewan people: a special deal on resource revenue sharing with First Nations. Broten followed that up by flip-flopping on support for the Keystone XL pipeline project. He eventually came down in favour of the project, but only after being reminded it had already received federal approval several years ago. Broten’s support for Keystone XL puts him at odds with not only his federal leader, Thomas Mulcair, but also with his closest leadership rival, Saskatoon Dr. Ryan Meili. Under Broten’s guiding hand, the NDP then started launching political attacks using false information. As the opposition, they have a responsibility to hold the gov-

ernment accountable, but to do so with facts. This was not the case on several occasions during the spring session. It started when Broten claimed overcrowding at a Saskatoon hospital led to 47 patients being treated in the hallway – it turns out there were only five. His Highways critic, Buckley Belanger, then claimed 90 highways workers were fired – also not true. This is a disturbing throwback to the days of Dwain Lingenfelter and his 1100 phony NDP memberships which does not serve the people of Saskatchewan well. In the coming months, MLAs will be doing what they have every summer since the people of Saskatchewan – you - entrusted us with stewardship of this great province six years ago – consulting with constituents to find out what your priorities are. Together, we will work toward achieving the ambitious goals contained in the Growth Plan – a population of 1.2 million people, a strong economy and a better qualify of life.

Government ads fail to inform taxpayers Continued from page 1 Cheadle also cites Liberal MP Scott Brison, who’s research found that it costs taxpayers about $95,000 to air each of its EAP advertisements that

air during CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada. The interesting thing is that at the conclusion of these television advertisements, there are none of the same disclaimers that appear at the end of some of the new

EAP radio spots. Cheadle cites a spokesman for the Privy Council Office, Raymond Rivet, who explains the reasons for this. “The recent radio ads launched by the Department of Finance contained new mea-

sures for consideration by Parliament as part of the March 21, 2013 budget. This is why a disclaimer was included. The recent EAP television advertisements did not contain new measures and aired be-

A glimpsing of an earlier time Some events we attend might best be described as bittersweet affairs. The work horse demonstrations held at Rama, SK. Saturday fit into that category for me. Anytime I am around draft horses I am happy. There is something about the gentle giants I have always felt attracted too. It could be that my father quit school in Grade 8 to stay on the farm and work horses, or maybe it’s because I’ve always appreciated history, and they have been a huge part of the agricultural history of this country. That is one reason I very much appreciated Merlin Ford’s book ‘Horses, Harness and Homesteads: The History of Draft Horses in Saskatchewan’. It is a book which really shows just how diverse the roles were for work horses in the early days of the Prairies. They were more than power on the farm, moving freight and goods in urban settings, doing yeoman work in forestry, and frankly being an integral part of just about every undertaking you might imagine in a time Saskatchewan was moving from Prairie grass to farmland. Ford’s work was also a timely one in as much as most of those who worked with horses on a daily basis are passing.

My dad, not long gone himself, was of that generation when horses were still important to farming, but their days were numbered. Tractors, which many thought would never replace the horse, did, and it was a change which occurred in a relatively short period of time. And that left work horses in a predicament. CALVIN When an animal is bred to work, DANIELS and that work disappears, then there is not much left for them to ~ do. So work horse numbers declined. Today there are still those who hitch work horses and put them to laborious tasks. This spring I visited with Kristina Just who is fulfilling a long held dream by now feeding her cows on the farm not far outside Yorkton with a team. It was a cool spring morning when I visited, but she was smiling as she did her chores with the help of two Belgians who also seemed to relish being put to a task for which they were bred. And that was what Rama was

all about. Teams were hitched to plows, cultivators, discs and harrows to ready a plot for planting. It was like glimpsing an earlier time watching the teamsters put their horses to work. It was particularly poignant having seen several massive four-wheel drive tractors working in the fields on the way to Rama. The contrast in times was quite dramatic. For me it was a great morning. But I was left wondering who will carry on the traditions of working horses in the years to come? The teamsters were all grey-haired, marking the experience of a lifetime harnessing draft horses, hitching them to all manner of equipment and putting them to the task. Who will know how to keep the horse plow and disc operational? Who will have the love of the big horses to keep them working a decade from now? Or two? Or three decades into the future? We live in a time when the knowledge of our work is a keystroke away, yet the practical skills of the recent past may slip away if we are not careful.

Low-maintenance, non-irrigated lawns

Non-irrigated lawns are best suited for large spaces like acreages. By Sara Williams As much as 50% of household water is applied to your lawn.The easiest way to cut your water bill then is simply to stop watering your lawn. But to do that you need to use low maintenance grasses. These are grass species and cultivars that persist with few inputs, require little water, fertilizer or mowing. Instead of being smooth and soft, they tend to be clumpy, lumpy and one does not voluntarily walk barefoot on

them. They are usually mowed at 3–6 in. – somewhat higher than conventional lawn grasses. These grasses work well on farms and acreages where their function is primarily visual. Once established, they require only occasional mowing and almost no irrigation or fertilizer. There are several species of three main genera to choose from: fescue (Festuca), bluegrass (Poa) and wheatgrass (Agropyron). Chewings fescue (Festucarubra var. commu-

tata) has narrow, dark blue green leaves. It can be mixed with creeping red fescue and Kentucky bluegrass in conventional lawns. It spreads by tillering, is shade- and droughttolerant and adapted to infertile, acid soils.Chewings fescue and creeping red fescue make a good blend, similar in height to a conventional lawn but requires less water, fertilizer and m o w i n g . R e c om m e nd e d cultivars include:‘Agram’, ‘Arctared’, ‘Banner’, ‘Victory’, ‘Longfellow II’, and

‘Silhouette.’ Blue-green in colour, sheep fescue (Festucaovina) is strongly clumping with good drought tolerance, and widely adaptive, from dry to moist soils and from basic to acidic. Recommended cultivars include ‘Nakiska’ and ‘Azay.’ Hard fescue (Festucaovina var. duriuscula) has a mature height of 6–10 in., with wider blades and a more greyish-green colour than other fescues. It is slow growing but once established forms a low ground cover that competes well with weeds. Growth slows down during the heat of summer. It is droughtand shade-tolerant. Newer cultivars seem less clumpy and many contain endophytes – naturally builtin biological controls against insects such as sod webworms and chinch bugs. Recommended cultivars include:‘Aurora’, ‘Biljart’, ‘Durar’, ‘Eureko II’,‘Reliant’, ‘Spartan’ and ‘Spartan II.’ Shorter growing (4–12 in.) and coarser than Kentucky bluegrass, Canada bluegrass (Poacompressa) is blue green and adapted to soils from moist to dry

and infertile and from acid to basic. It has a fibrous root system with extensive rhizomes, and a clumpy form. It is tolerant of wear, stress and drought and is disease resistant.‘Reubens’ is less clumpy to nonclumpy than the species. Although very drought tolerant, wheatgrasses show a strong clumping habit and are less dense than other grasses.Crested wheatgrass (Agropyroncristatum) is a clumping bunch grass with excellent drought tolerance. The species seeds readily and may become invasive once established, particularly if planted near or among native grass species.‘Fairway’ crested wheatgrass is one of the best grasses for nonirrigated lawns. Northern wheatgrass (A. dasystachyum), a native species, is relatively low growing at 20 to 30 cm (8–12 in.). With a strong spreading habit and extensive rhizomes, it establishes quickly and is well adapted to slopes, banks and sandy soils. Greyish green in colour, it has a clumpy appearance.‘Elbee’ has excellent drought tolerance.

Streambank wheatgrass (A. riparium) is a dryland species used in pure stands or in mixtures with small amounts of Kentucky bluegrass. It t is a low-growing, sod-forming grass, with narrow leaves and stems 12–30 in. high. It has vigorous rhizomes, is longlived and colonizes both by seed and its spreading root system. It flourishes on welldrained soils, withstands mowing and is highly competitive with weeds under dryland conditions. Long recommended for farm lawns, it establishes quickly with good germination and seedling vigour. The seeding rates for the above in pure stands are 3.5–4.5lb/1000 sq. ft for the fescues, 1–2 lb/1000 sq. ft for the bluegrass, and 3–5 lb/1000 sq. ft for the wheatgrasses.

New system in place for purchase of fishing licenses

Boaters and anglers enjoying the pleasant conditions on Memorial Lake during the long weekend.

Annual Flag Day held in Canwood

On Monday, May 6th at 11:00 a.m. the Canwood Elks and Royal Purple members had their annual flag raising ceremony in front of the R.M. building. The first week in May is Hearing and Speech Awareness Week. Early detection of communicative disorders is everyone’s responsibility. For more information and assistance visit the websites www.elks-canada.org or www.royalpurpleofcanada.org. The students of Mrs. Howat’s Pre-K class were on hand to help celebrate the flag raising event.

It used to be that you could walk down to your local hardware store or gas station, converse with the clerk or other familiar patrons, and with no more than a pen and some official forms of paper, you could walk out with your fishing license in hand. This is no longer the case at many used-tobe license vendor sites, as a new electronic system has been implemented that has caused some proprietors to discontinue the practice. Its name is HAL, and it is the brand new Hunting, Trapping and Angling License System as presented by the Government of Saskatchewan. Through this system potential licensees are able to go online from the comfort of their homes and, through a series of clicks, register themselves in the database and print off their new licenses. All that you need is an internet connection, a credit card, a unique email address and a printer. For those who possess these items, the new system will certainly prove to be convenient. It is only when one lacks one of these articles that problems can arise. In those cases, the other options include registering over the phone or physically seeking out a vendor who has made the switch to the new system. Scott Moe, MLA of Rosthern-Shellbrook, says that along with the convenience that an automated system provides, HAL will also help by providing the Ministry of Environment with real-time feedback that will assist them in their various initiatives. “What this fits into is, first of all, the growth plan for Saskatchewan that the premiere announced last fall, but it also fits into the Ministry of Environment and what they are doing with their results based approach to resource management.” According to the Government of Saskatchewan’s website, prior to the implementation of HAL on April 1, 2013 there were 600 license issuers in the province. Currently there are only 239 who are registered and trained to use the new system, even though everyone who participated in the old system was invited to switch over. Some common complaints are arising from various establishments that are choosing to abstain from HAL. Many feel that to

switch over would be too expensive. For a shop to use the system it must first equip itself with a computer, internet access and a printer that can be used to issue licenses, and for some this means an added expense. They feel that the ability to provide a license would not bring enough added traffic to their store, and the commission they would make on sales, which amounts to $1 per license, is insufficient. In the town of Shellbrook there used to be a number of locations where angling licenses were available for purchase. As of now, there are none. “There has been a reduction in the number of private vendors,” Moe said. “But then there is the option now, which was not there before, to do it either by telephone or by website.” Some vendors who have decided to make the switch are very happy with the new system. One such vendor is the Willow Insurance Corporation located in Shell Lake. Owner Rose Freeman said that for them the transition was very easy. Being an office, the company already had all of the necessary equipment required for changing over to the electronic system. They are up and running with HAL and Freeman said that the response from patrons has been very positive. According to Freeman, when problems do arise, the support has been excellent and they have found that snags can often be worked out. “An individual went to another vendor to purchase one and there was an issue with the transaction, it wouldn’t print properly,” Freeman said. “They came in and there was still an issue with the system so I talked to the Active Network, the ones that monitor the actual software, and they were extremely helpful. I called them and they had it straightened out.” “With any change the roll out is never just perfect,” Moe said. “I know there have been some hurdles with the roll out of the HAL system and the Ministry of Environment is working to address those.” It’s probably too early to decide whether HAL should be kept or thrown back, but for now anyone hoping to get out there and fish will have to adapt to the new system.

All Hands on deck

If this past week is any indication, there’s no doubt that under ideal conditions, the equipment and technology being used in the fields today are allowing us to plant more crop than ever. The most recent U.S.D.A crop progress report showed that over 63 million acres of major crops in the U.S. was planted in just one week. This is equivalent to the same area as about the size of Texas! Up here in Canada, while we didn’t plant nearly as many acres, we definitely held our own proportionally with producers across the Prairies letting us know they’re pushing the limit to get the crop in. With regards to the U.S.D.A. progress report, 43 per cent (or 41.84 million acres) of the corn crop was planted in just 1 week, bringing the total to 71 per cent. Further, 24 per cent of the U.S. soybean crop is now in the ground, an improvement of 18 point week-over-week. Granted these numbers are still well behind the five-year average of 79 per cent and 42 per cent respectively, it is a significant improvement from where we were just a couple of days ago. The planting conditions in Western Canada have been

fairly ideal with rains fairly spotty in all except Manitoba. The wet fields in the eastern-most Prairie province is certainly putting a damper on the hope that more crop can get put in at a pace similar to our American neighbours. That being said, the same weather system is affecting the likes of North Dakota where it’s been estimated that at least 500,000 acres will likely be switched out of corn and into soybeans or a cereal crop. Should the same be expected for Manitoba? It varies by region as some areas were soaked with three inches in less than three days while others only got a few sprinkles. Switching continents, Australia continues to receive some much needed rain in major wheat producing regions. This would help a crop there return to natural form a from a drought-inflicted production shortfall last year. As such, with Aussie wheat supplies getting very short, prices are a little higher than the rest of the global market (as indicated by Indonesia’s recent purchase of 45,000 tonnes of Canadian spring wheat versus a closer purchase from the Land Down Undaa).

At the end of the day, a lot of crop is going into the ground in a short period of time. This in mind, there is some risk on the table should the weather not cooperate during key growth stages (i.e. the expected late June/early July corn pollination phase). Should things go more along the lines of normalcy, then we can expect to see a gradual decline in grain prices as a result of the higher anticipated supply. Ultimately, that’s what happens when you get all hands on deck & everyone contributes a little here & there. To growth, Brennan Turner President, FarmLead.com Brennan Turner is originally from Foam Lake, SK, where his family started farming the land in the 1920s. After completing his degree in economics from Yale University and then playing some pro hockey, Mr. Turner spent some time working in finance before starting FarmLead.com, a risk-free, transparent online grain marketplace. His weekly column is a summary of his free, daily market note, the FarmLead Breakfast Brief.

They will patrol town periodically and also respond to complaints in order to find infractions of the town’s bylaws. This will include things such as unkempt yards, traffic violations and loose animals. They will be present in town for five hours a week, and they will vary these times randomly in order to remain unpredictable. Council passed bylaw 2013-01 at the meeting and submitted it to the Saskatchewan Municipal Board (SMB) for approval. This bylaw pertains to water, sewer and infrastructure rates for the next three years. The bylaw states that there will be a 10% increase in water and sewer rates for the remainder of 2013, and that the infrastructure rates will increase

to $15 per month, with a minimum total bill of $62.90 per month for all three. In 2014 there will be a 10% increase in water and sewer, and an infrastructure rate of $18 per month, with a minimum total monthly bill of $70.70 per month. In 2015 there will be a 10% increase in water and sewer rates, an infrastructure rate of $21 per month, and a minimum total monthly bill of $79 per month. Also, billing will change to a monthly minimum bill, with an actual reading being done every three months. These rates will take effect on the day of approval from SMB or on July 1, 2013, whichever is later. The increases were determined upon the completion of asset management plans on the town’s sanitary sewer

system and water works system, which opened the council’s eyes as to how underfunded the town’s infrastructure has been in the past. The mill rate has been set at 12.1, which is down from the 39 mills last year. The reduction was due to assessment increases. All land for residential and agricultural use will incur a base tax of $100, while the base tax on commercial land will be $250. Also, there will be a minimum tax on residential improvements of $700. The mill rate factor on residential and agricultural will be 100%, and on commercial it will be 300%. In the midst of all these numbers, the bottom line is that some people’s taxes will go up, and some people’s taxes will go down.

Crosby, Toews headed for cup showdown? Which young National Hockey League superstar will be the first to win two Stanley Cups? We could find out in mid-June whether it’s Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks or Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Both are 25 years of age, have one Cup each to their credit and appear headed for a Stanley Cup final showdown. Their teams were the class of their respective conferences during the shortened 48game regular season and neither has shown any signs of slowing down in the post-season. Crosby, generally acclaimed as the best hockey player in the world, won his Cup in 2009, leading the Penguins past Detroit Red Wings in the final. The next year, Toews and his Hawks were crowned champs, downing Philadelphia in the final. Having two teams other than Pittsburgh and Chicago in this year’s final would have to be regarded as a huge surprise. The Penguins were

nine points better than runner-up Montreal in the Eastern Conference, and Chicago’s closest rival in the West, 11 points behind, was Anaheim. Both of those runner-up teams are already on the sidelines, leaving what appears to be a clear path for Pittsburgh and Chicago to zip through to the final. Hockey fans all across North America are rooting hard for Crosby. He missed most of the 201112 season with a concussion. After this year’s lockout ended in January, he got off to a sensational start with the Penguins, leading the scoring race by a mile before he took a slapshot in the jaw, fracturing it, and causing all kinds of tooth damage. He made it back in time for the playoffs and has been playing some of his best hockey. Crosby, who wears the number 87 because he was born Aug. 7 (8-7) in 1987, may be on top of his game because he’s so fresh thanks to all the injury time off. It says

OBITUARIES ~ Herman Thiessen THIESSEN - Herman Thiessen He was a loving, caring husband, father, and grandfather who enjoyed the simple things in life. His first love was always his family, of which he spoke so proudly of and shared so many fond memories with. His grandchildren were very dear to his heart and he always found the time to keep them busy, playing cards or dice, or taking them for tractor, quad or skidoo rides. He had immense respect for nature and admired spending most of his time outdoors, whether it was working in the field, tending to his cattle, trapping, or watching wildlife. He had a great sense of humour, loved to tease and joke, and his smile could always light up a room. Music and dancing was a favourite pastime of his, he never wanted to go home from a function. His character was very influential and touched the lives of many. He was a genuine, kind-hearted, down to earth person with a soft voice and a huge heart. He was stubborn, determined, and strong-willed which enabled him to persevere. The cabin was his haven, a place where he could get away from daily life and relax. His trap line was very important to him, and his hard work and dedication resulted in numerous awards for his furs. He was always up for a visit and a few drinks which seemed to get stronger as the night progressed. He was a one of a kind man, who will always be greatly loved and missed. Herman leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife of 49 years, Vivian; children: Shannon and her daughter Heidi (Ryan) – Tiffany & Kolby; Charma and her children: Jeremy (Desiree), Chelsea (Cyril) & Kimberly (David); Sherlyn (Donald) and her son Shawn; Bradley (Angie) and their children Liam& Kara. He also leaves his mother, Anna; and his siblings, Judd, Margaret, Mary (Richard), Judy (Dale), Martha, Bernice (Wayne); and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. Herman was predeceased by his father, Henry; his brothers, Henry & Abe; his sisters, Helen &Tena and a sonin-law, Denis. Herman passed away with his family by his side on May 15th, 2013 at the Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert, SK. at the age of 70. It is Herman’s wishes to have a private family service, which will be held at a later date.

Local nurse honoured Health care has been prevalent in the minds of many community members these days with the upcoming opening of the new Parkland Integrated Health Centre. In the midst of all of this, it is sometimes easy to forget about the individuals who help these facilities function. One such person was honoured recently with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Pam Archibald, a registered nurse at the Shellbrook Primary Health Care Clinic, was granted this national honour for her efforts at the clinic and in the community. According to the Governor General of Canada’s website, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created in 2012 to mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II taking the Throne as Queen of Canada. The medal was designed as a way for Canadians to honour Her Majesty for her service, while at the same time honouring individual Canadians who have contributed to the country’s success. The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) was invited to award 30 of these medals to deserving RNs across the country. According to the CNA website, Pam was selected for the award because of the attention she gives her patients and the extra work that she does in the community. “When Pam is faced with a new treatment regime, a com-

plex patient or an unusual symptom, she investigates and uses an evidence-based approach to ensure her patients receive the best care possible,” the website states. “Pam’s main priority is her patients. She is compassionate and caring and strives to provide patient and family-focused care. Chronic disease management is only a small part of her day. S he also spends considerable time involved in community engagement activities. Besides having a very busy role in the clinic, Pam recently took on an additional role: presenting a six-week program for individuals and families living with chronic conditions called Live Well with Chronic Conditions. Pam exemplifies the role of the nurse practitioner, showing how this role aligns with the teambased care model.” “I offer the warmest of congratulations and thanks to all of the medal recipients,” CNA president Barb Mildon said at a congratulatory dinner held in Ottawa on March 5. “These medals represent a distinct achievement in each of their exemplary careers. They will also serve as an inspiration to the entire nursing community. No matter what capacity or sector an RN works in, he or she is engaged in and committed to helping Canadians and the health care system reach a higher level of health.”

2013 Big Game draw now open The 2013 Big Game Draw is open until June 17 for Saskatchewan hunters. “Our province is blessed with abundant sporting opportunities,” Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said. “Best of luck to those participating in the 2013 Big Game Draw and I wish all hunters an enjoyable and safe season.” According to an evaluation conducted by the Ministry of Environment in 2005, it was estimated that hunters contribute $107.5 million to the economy annually through their sporting activities - approximately eight per cent of the total amount spent on all tourism activities in Saskatchewan. Much of this expenditure generated economic benefits to rural areas across the province. All hunters on the draw application are reminded they must have their own unique Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence iden-

tification number (HAL ID) and are urged to obtain one before applying for the draw to avoid complications with their application. Hunters can receive a HAL ID: •Online at www.environment.gov.sk.ca/licences/ •Through private issuers, ministry offices and select park offices; or •By phone at 1-855-848-4773 between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. (CST) Starting this year, licences will not be mailed automatically to successful applicants as the HAL ID allows licences to be issued via the automated licensing system. Information on who was successful in the draw will be posted on both the big game draw site and on an individual’s HAL account starting mid July. The 2013 Saskatchewan Resident Big Game Draw Supplement is available at www.environment.gov.sk.ca/hunting/.
