Hospital emergency department closed Nov. 4-6 A lack of physician coverage through the weekend has caused the Shellbrook Hospital Emergency Department to be closed during its regular scheduled hours November 4 to 6. Emergency service will resume Friday, Nov. 11, 2011, for weekend coverage including Remembrance Day at 8 a.m. Following the Remembrance Day weekend service is again open each Friday from 6 p.m. until the following Monday morning at 8 a.m. Ambulance services are available 24-hours per day, and will bypass Shellbrook Hospital from Sundays at midnight to Fridays at 6 p.m. The Region has been operating the Emergency Department on weekends since August 2, 2011. At present inpatient acute care is not provided until a sustainable physician oncall rotation can be maintained. The inpatient beds are currently being utilized for non-acute patients, including individuals who are waiting for placement in long-term care facilities. The Region, in partnership with the Town of Shellbrook, is operating a primary health care clinic with visiting physicians, primarily from Prince Albert, as well as a nurse practitioner. This clinic is located in the current physician clinic location across from the Shellbrook Hospital. The hours of operation at the two medical clinics is 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, excluding statutory holiday. Area residents can call one of the two medical clinics for appointments: â€˘ Shellbrook Medical Clinic, with Dr. Fourie and Dr. Nguegno, at 306.747.2171, or Shellbrook Primary Care Clinic at 306.747.2552. If individuals want information outside of regular clinic hours, they are encouraged to call Saskatchewan HealthLine for medical advice 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. The HealthLine number is 1-877-800-0002. The HealthLine is a toll-free health advice line that is staffed by Registered Nurses. They can provide you with immediate, professional health advice or information, and direct you to the most appropriate source of care. HealthLine will help you decide whether you should treat your own symptoms, go to a clinic, wait to see your doctor, or go to a hospital emergency room.

Big River RCMP investigate Debden break-in and assault
Big River RCMP are investigating a complaint of a Break, Enter and an assault that was first reported to police on October 29th at approximately 5:00 a.m. After receiving the call, police attended immediately to a residence in the 400 block of 4th Avenue West in the community of Debden, SK. The 84 year old female victim lived in the residence by herself. The victim was injured during the attack and was transported by EMS to Shellbrook hospital where she was treated and released after a short time. RCMP believe the suspect(s) responsible are male but, at this point, it is
unclear if one or two are responsible for this incident. Attending to the scene was the RCMP Police Service Dog who identified a track of the suspect(s) but it ended after a short distance. Later that morning, RCMP in Big River received a report of a stolen ATV and are looking at the possibility that these two complaints are related. RCMP have recovered the stolen ATV and the Forensic Identification Unit out of Prince Albert are examining this vehicle. The Prince Albert General Investigation Unit is assisting with this investigation and the Prince Albert Victim Services Unit has also been involved.
RCMP are also looking into the possibility that this incident is related to a similar incident in Loon Lake that occurred on October 26th. If you have information in regards to this or any other crime, please contact the Big River RCMP at 306-4692590 or if you wish to remain anonymous, Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, *8477 on Sask-Tel Mobility, text TIP206 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or online at www. saskcrimestoppers.com where you can also view information on other unsolved crimes.

Riders win final home game of the season It was a hollow victory, but the Saskatchewan Roughriders will take it. In their final home game of the 2011 season, the Riders dominated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 19-3 on a windy, cold day at Mosaic Stadium on Saturday. With the teams’ playoff fates decided, the game meant very little to either side but they definitely went about it in different ways. The Riders will miss the playoffs but played the game with renewed spirit, particularly on special teams and defence as they forced five Ticats turnovers and kept them out of the end zone. Hamilton on the other hand had already clinched a berth and couldn’t move up or down the standings regardless of the game’s outcome. And they played
Rider Insider With the Voice of The Riders, Rod Pedersen like it. Their coaches were shaking their heads at halftime when Hamilton trailed 17-0 but in the back of their minds they had to know more meaningful games are ahead. The paid attendance for the game was 29,073 however estimates suggest about 20,000 fans actually showed up. The most unfortunate thing about that was the fact the club’s consecutive sellout string ended at 19 games. It would have been nice to see the streak carried over to 2012 when better for-
tunes are anticipated. But instead of scorning those who stayed away, we’ll congratulate those braved the elements to show up and give their team a proper send-off. They had the good fortune of seeing 17-year lineman Gene Makowsky lead his team out of the giant inflatable helmet to start the game (a first in his career), in what appeared to be his final home game after a Hall of Fame tour of duty. The fans saw rookie kicker Chris Milo set a team record and tie a CFL
one with an 108-yard punt in the first quarter. And they rose to their feet as starting quarterback Ryan Dinwiddie knelt down to grind out the clock at the game’s conclusion, giving their beloved club one final standing ovation in this head-shaker of a season. The Riders finished the home portion of the schedule at 3-6 and will take a 5-12 record into their final game of the season, Friday at Edmonton. Hollow as it was, the club had reason to smile as a host of fresh faces left it all out on the field and emerged victorious. “Yah I’m happy man,” said rookie Rider tailback Brandon West who had 96 rushing yards in place of veteran Wes Cates. “This was real big. I could tell the look on the mens’ faces that they were ready to go. Coach Ken Miller

offer certain items. There is a possible ‘food drive’ being planned in the future to help with replenishing the food. The food bank is also involved in the school providing needed food. 7. Food Bank rent A suggestion was made for the business places and the churches is to cover the food bank rent. The rent cost $450. It was suggested to bring this idea to the churches to see if everyone would like to participate. 8. Local radio station 92.1 FM is up and running. It is doing well. 9. Pastor Doug mentioned that they are having a special service of ‘healing and wholeness.’ Nov. 13 in the evening @ 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome. 10. The hospital has approached the ministerial about having a service held there for the patients. The ministerial has agreed that this would be a great idea. Pastor Doug will contact those that were missing today to see if they would like to be included on the rotation. 11. Fall Supper- the United Church is having their fall supper on Oct.
30th . The cost is $10 per person. Kids 12 and under are free. 12. Next meeting – is at Shellbrook Pentecostal Assembly Wed. Nov 16 @ 9:30 am. Pastor Baldock closed in prayer.
too. I love that guy.” Indeed it was also the swan song on the sidelines for Miller, who announced Monday that he would be stepping down from the organization. “I tell you what, it feels good,” Miller admitted. “The men in the locker room are really happy. I was particularly happy with the defence. The takeaways are so important. The special teams
were good, Milo tied a CFL record and our offence moved the ball just enough.” It’s anybody’s guess as to what the Rider roster will look like for their final game Friday in Edmonton. However those are the small questions. The big ones will start to be answered one week from now.

Opinions Dave Hyndman News Editor Brad’s column is not available this week, Dave is a guest columnist
By now you’ve probably given all the thought you’re going to regarding the breakup of Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to what’s-is-name, the NBA basketball player who is currently unemployed due to the NBA lockout. Oh yeah, Kris Humphries. Remember that name, because it could be the answer to a trivia question someday. Or forget it, because who really cares about the Kardashian soap opera, anyway. At this time of the year, the first issue of November, we should be dedicating our efforts towards reminding people about “Movember”, the annual event that started in 2004 and has since spread around the world. I refer to the fund-raising event that has thus far raised $176 million for research into finding a cure for prostate cancer, and for informing men of habits and attitudes towards issues of men’s health. Last year, 119,000 Canadians raised $22.3 million. Movember begins on Nov. 1 when men who are participating shave their facial hair, and then let their mustaches grow untouched for the rest of the month. For some, it’s a genuine effort to raise funds and awareness. Those who are genuine can register by visiting http://ca.movember.com and signing up - or just donate to any participant or team, or just a general donation. I could insert a rant at this point about my feelings towards facial hair, but my kids read this newspaper and they have had it up to here with what they call “Dad’s little peeves.” So, we’ll just leave it and move on, and talk about history in the making. Monday is an historic day in Saskatchewan. It is the first time in the electoral history of Canada that a federal or provincial election has been called on a predetermined date. All elections have been held at the whim of the governing party - unless they are defeated in the House, that is - and can take place at any time within five years. It is typical for a government holding a majority to go four years, but it is by no means a requirement that they do so. Governments that go after three come off as cynical, and those that go five are usually desperate. In that sense, it’s not unusual to have the election now, since the government has had a majority, and if they emerge Monday with another majority, we’ll know that the date of the next election will be the first Monday in November, 2015. What remains to be seen is just how many turn out to cast their vote on Monday. I spent 32 years trying to convince my students that their right to vote is important, and sacred, and something that millions of people the world over would give their eye-teeth to have. And for crying out loud, take your driver’s licence with you when you go to vote, or have some other form of acceptable identification with you. The person handing you a ballot or the one checking off your name may be your next door neighbor, but they are bound by law to conduct the election according to the rules, and we know from past experience that these people take their responsibilities very seriously. It doesn’t sound like much, but taking it seriously is one thing that sets our elections apart from virtually every other country in the world. OK, I’m off the soapbox. I’m OK. When Rider coach Ken Miller decided to announce his retirement early because there’s lots going on in November, I’m sure he wasn’t thinking of the Lions Seniors Supper on the 12th and the Lioness Craft sale on the 19th. But just in case your month is filling up, mark those two dates on your calendar and plan to attend. The Lions will also have their lottery tickets for the Cash of the Month draws starting soon. Make sure you get yours. They make great stocking stuffers, too.
The Paul Martin Commentary The debate over potash royalties in the provincial election campaign is the kind of stuff that can glaze the eyes. Is the royalty rate the five-cents-on-a-dollar claimed by Dwain Lingenfelter or is the 21 per cent advanced by Brad Wall. Well, both actually. There was one time when royalties came in at five per cent but it’s more likely to be 20 per cent or even higher. According to the Potash Corp, they’re on track to pay about $700 million in taxes this year. That’s all direct taxes including income and royalty charges. That amounts to something near 30 per cent of their net income. Whether they pay the government for income taxes or royalty, it’s kind of irrelevant to the company. They’re writing a check to the government. The royalty rules also encourage companies to invest in expansion, allowing them to write off the capital cost quicker than usual. Potash Corp’s expansion program will end in a year or two and will lose that benefit so they’ll end up returning to their traditional 40 to 45 per cent in taxes. *** Early retirement. It’s not in the cards anymore. A study of the retirement patterns of working Canadians conducted by Statistics Canada has discovered that retiring at age 55 was in vogue in the 90’s but is a thing of the past right now. Back in the 90s, it was a period of downsizing in both the public and private sectors, something that triggered payouts and early retirement for a lot 50 somethings. But these days the story is completely different. There are plenty of jobs, more of a financial need to stay in the workforce and middle-aged people are healthier so we probably going to spend at least three more years in the
workforce than their older brothers or sisters. Actually there were more 55 year olds working last year back in 1976, the last high water mark for this statistic. Employers in this province in particular have been scrambling to find talent to fill vacant jobs and they’re looking everywhere – including hiring older workers who wouldn’t have gotten a second look ten years ago. *** Consumer confidence in this province appears to be gaining momentum. Saskatchewan citizens turned in the biggest year-over-year increase in retail spending in the country in August, up more than 7.5 per cent, nearly double the national average. The gain from July to August was relatively small – less than a half percentage point – but when added to the big jump we saw in July, Saskatchewan’s retail community is clearly enjoying the benefit of the economic strength driving our economy. What these numbers tell us is that consumers have a positive feeling about their near-term economic prospects. Low unemployment coupled with a labor market that favors workers offer an upbeat outlook that encourages a willingness to increase spending on a wide range of goods and services. Retail sales levels rose across the country through the summer but no province was able to keep up with the pace that we’ve been setting which puts us well ahead of last year’s gains and significantly above 2009 when sales went down for the first time in a decade after the US banking crisis triggered a global recession.

Viewpoint Sask. Party low-bid beats NDP high-hand The leader’s debate boiled down to a one-onone showdown between NDP leader Dwain Lingenfelter and Saskatchewan Party leader Brad Wall. Really, though, the real showdown was a few days earlier when the respective parties released their platform. It came down to two numbers _ the $414 million in extra spending Wall says a Sask. Party government will spend versus the $2.7- to $3.1-billion being offered up by Lingenfelter’s NDP. In an election that seems far more about restraint than spending, most would agree that Wall wins in the battle of the platforms. Typical of a campaign in which a lot has gone wrong for Lingenfelter, they have been caught playing high-card draw in
a low-card game. Of course, the advantage Wall and the Sask. Party has is that they have been winning at a highcard game for four years and now have the advantage of being able to simply change the rules. Massive spending windfalls _ especially in 2008 when the provincial government got an extra billion dollars in oil and natural gas land lease sales alone allowed the Sask. Party to get away with massive spending. Government expenditures have increased by a massive 29 per cent or $2.5 billion-plus in the past four years under the Wall administration. It is one of the reasons the government has been in a deficit situation in two of the last three years (including this fiscal year). This goodtimes spending gives cre-
dence to some sort of Sovereign Wealth Fund similar to what the NDP are now proposing. A t the very
promises. They have a point. It’s a position infuriat-
least, it does put into question exactly how sold the Sask. Party’s fiscal management has really been. But despite the Sask. Party’s high-rolling ways (or perhaps because of them), Wall and company have placed themselves in a tremendously advantageous position of saying that now just isn’t the time for anyone to be making big spending election
ing to NDP supporters who argue that a government that increased spending by $2.5-billion-plus is the last term of office should not be calling its opponents the Spend-D-P. But in the potcalling-the-kettle world of politics, there’s usually a reverse. And the reverse is that it’s been the NDP who have been complaining bitterly over the last four years of the Wall govern-
ment, spending too much, not really balancing the budget, adding to debt and _ get this _ being too reliant on questionable potash revenue projections. If the complaints are that the Sask. Party budget margins have been razorthin, surely the same can be said about the NDP budget plan premised on a potash royalty changes capturing an extra $2.3 billion in the four-year term (including $700 million more by 2015-16). That the NDP also says there will undertake a royal review (which one assumes will take time and whose results aren’t presumably not predetermined) makes it even more suspicious that the province would garner that kind of potash money in that short of time. (One can also safely assume the potash compa-
nies won’t be that eager to fork over the extra money.) It hasn’t been so much that any of the NDP promises are outlandish. But some of them _like the $57-million-a-year subsidy to achieve the lowest bundle of utility costs in Canada _ aren’t that necessary. And others like the 400 megawatts of new wind turbine power or the negotiations of resource sharing with First Nations have no pricetag. The Sask. Party platform is likely too modest and doesn’t touch a lot of critical issues like a fairer price for our potash. But it is costed, targeted to some specific need groups like diabetics and the disabled and _ most significantly _ cheaper. In this game, low bid wins.

Editor: In April of this year, Brad Wall acknowledged that due to the nuclear accident in Japan, there is negative public opinion in Saskatchewan for building a nuclear waste repository here, and in fact that his government was not interested. A few months later, the Sask Party signed an MOU with Hitachi and GE, Cameco’s partners in uranium enrichment technology, to build reactors in our province and to do research on nuclear waste fuel with the University of Saskatchewan. Hitachi is the company that built the Fukushima reactor. Operating a nuclear reactor within our borders would effectively eradicate Saskatchewan’s ability to refuse the building of a repository, since we’d be producing the waste ourselves. This leaves us vulnerable to bringing in thousands of tons of deadly radioactive nuclear waste which, according to the Nuclear Waste Management Organization’s own literature, “remains a potential health risk for many hundreds of thousands of years and must be safely isolated from people and the environment essentially indefinitely” http://www.nwmo.ca/sitingprocess_faqs#b1 . Realistically - can any container be guaranteed to “safely” contain a hazardous product forever? Questions on the nuclear waste repository were submitted to the CBC for the party leaders debate, but not only was that issue NOT raised - the word “uranium” was not even mentioned - this in a province which is the largest producer of uranium in the world. Potash royalties were debated at length. With all due respect, is potash the only natural resource we have? Was the topic of uranium omitted because the NDP has stated they oppose a nuclear waste repository? The Sask Party is following the Uranium Partnership Development’s plan and taking Saskatchewan all the way to the end product of the nuclear fuel cycle, which views nuclear waste as a commodity by reprocessing it into plutonium. (Check out the Cameco mural at the Saskatoon airport, sporting a plaque on reprocessing.) Is barreling ahead with the full nuclear agenda Brad Wall’s idea of respecting the people’s opinion? WAKE UP SASKATCHEWAN - not only would nuclear waste remain a threat to our environment virtually forever, with one nuclear accident potentially irradiating our watershed, but reprocessing plutonium from nuclear waste produces even more deadly byproducts. This is already happening in France, and if Brad Wall has his way, will be only a matter of time before Saskatchewan is
doing it with all of Canada’s nuclear waste. Furthermore, plutonium is instantly weapons-grade upon production (a penny’s size can blow up a city), and would have to be guarded by the military. Voters need to ask themselves - is this the kind of Saskatchewan we want to pass on to our children’s children? All the royalties in the world will not be able to buy back our clean water once it is contaminated. Enjoy your next glass of water while you can. SHAME on the powers at be for this glaring omission from the party leaders’ debate, of a gravely serious issue which affects ALL of Saskatchewan. Debby Morin, Beauval, Saskatchewan
Solutions found in economic equality
Dear Editor, If you were asked by a candidate in the current election to identify your biggest concern what would it be? Health? Safety? Education? Environment? As disparate as these issues appear to be, research reveals that there is a common solution— economic equality. While I have been taught to be sceptical of the “one thing needful”, I believe equality is an exception. Let’s take a look at each issue. How does our status affect our health? Stress from chronic low status inflames our body and mind leading literally to disease. Safety? We feel safer, and hence less stress, in communities where we know and trust others because there are few socioeconomic status divisions. Education? If we are hungry or feel ashamed of our status amongst our peers, we are unable to focus on learning. Environment? Behind environmental problems, we find people determined, in spite of the costs, to improve their quality of life by raising their status through work. Did you notice economics was absent from my list of issues? For decades, we have been told economic growth is the one thing needful; that the invisible hand of the market place will fix all problems. If everything followed the law of the market, this might be true, but health, safety, education, and environment are not markets. Economic growth will not generate greater well being, safer streets, improved learning, or less environmental degradation. Don’t wait for your candidates to ask, let them know that your vote goes to the one thing needful—economic equality. Nancy Carswell, Shellbrook, Saskatchewan

Fall planting of the garden to get a jump on spring By Jackie Bantle If you are one of those vegetable gardeners who is not quite ready to say goodbye to the 2011 growing season, there is one fall project that you may want to try. Several weeks ago, seeding fall garlic was the topic of discussion in this column. Fall seeding other vegetables is not a common practice on the Prairies but one that is worth trying. Not all vegetables can be seeded in the garden before winter but there are a few vegetable crops that can be fall sown with success. Most vegetable gardeners love to get an early start on the growing season. There is no better way to take advantage of moisture from the spring melt and showers than getting those seeds in the ground before the moisture appears. Because fall seeded vegetable crops will emerge early in spring, crops that will be killed or permanently damaged by spring frosts should be avoided. Soil preparation is just as important before fall planting as it is in the spring. To prepare the seed bed, use a mulching
mower to mulch any of this year’s left over disease-free vegetation in the garden patch. If mulching is not an option, remove plant debris and place it in your compost bin. Any diseased plant material should be buried or discarded in the trash. Add well composted manure or compost to your garden; especially to the area that will be fall seeded. Work this compost into your fall garden area with a rototiller or by turning over the soil with a spade. It is a good idea to work up the entire garden area in the fall: this will bring overwintering soil pests to the soil surface where they will hopefully freeze or desiccate over the winter months. Rake the area to be seeded to provide a level surface. As with any seeding operation, it is important to have good soil to seed contact for maximum, uniform germination. Dry soil is preferred for fall seeding since mois-
ture will encourage seed rot and seed germination in fall. Avoid fall seeding any warm season crop crops like corn, beans, cucumbers, pumpkins or squash. Seeds of warm season crops do not tolerate cold soil conditions. In general, cool season crops tolerate cooler temperatures during germination, growth and storage. Despite their propensity to cooler temperatures, not all cool season crops can be successfully fall seeded on the Prairies. Crops that are worth trying to fall seed include; onions, radish, broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, spinach and kale. A general rule of thumb for fall vegetable seeding is to seed deeper and denser than in spring. Increase all depths and densities by 25-50%. Following are some general guidelines: onions, radish, kohlrabi and spinach (1 cm deep, 1cm between seeds), broccoli and cabbage (1cm deep, 15cm b/w), kale (1 cm deep, 1.5 cm b/w). Do

not water your rows after fall seeding. While I wouldn’t plan to seed all my kohlrabi or onions in the fall, it is a good way to get a jump on the growing season in
spring for some early harvested vegetables. Good luck with your fall planting. I’d write more, but for now…. I have some vegetable planting to do before the snow flies!

Agriculture Is heavy handed governance our future? The Yorkton Chamber of Commerce took the lead recently in trying to determine whether the Conservative government plan to end the single-desk selling monopoly of the Canadian Wheat Board was a good move, or whether the CWB is an institution which should be left as it is. Kyle Korneychuk, director with the CWB took the position the Board should be retained, while Geoff Hewson, a director with the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association took the side calling for open marketing. Now as you might imagine Korneychuk and Hewson do not see eyeto-eye on the issue of the Wheat Board, and both made passionate points in support of their view, although as one of the presenters stated after the debate, he doubted any in the Legion Hall in Yorkton had been swayed from whatever view they walked in with. For farmers at least the debate about whether the single-desk selling of Western Canadian wheat, durum, and export barley is the appropriate system or whether farmers should have marketing freedom is not a new one. It has been discussed in town hall
meetings and coffee shops, and farmer votes for years. The numbers have fluctuated over those years, but not dramatically. There is a slim majority of farmers who like the CWB system as it is, and that support has more, or less held through the debates. The biggest question for farmers, and one Korneychuk and Hewson tried their best to answer, is what will the world be like post-CWB, if the federal government manages to proceed with the dismantling of the Board as it has announced. Korneychuk sees a world where farmers will lose money. He sees the saving of the Port of Churchill and producer cars as two examples. Korneychuk said farmers are likely to lose $8$12 million annually when the Port of Churchill falls out of use, adding most of that will be lost in East Central Saskatchewan, the traditional catchment area for the northern port. In addition 90 per cent of producer cars are now grains destined for the CWB, and if those are lost, farmers will lose another $14 million in savings. Hewson suggested the CWB is a stumbling block in terms of value added processing, and once the
The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association has today instructed lawyers to commence legal action against the Canadian Wheat Board and eight of its directors for their misuse of farmers’ money. “We have been contemplating legal action against the CWB for quite some time now,” says Kevin Bender, President of the Wheat Growers. “The CWB’s decision to file a legal action against
the federal Minister of Agriculture was the tipping point. We cannot stand idly by and watch the CWB directors continue to misuse our money.” The Wheat Growers have instructed a reputable law firm to pursue an injunction and all available measures necessary to stop the CWB from misusing farmer funds for political purposes, including the legal action launched yesterday by the CWB. “The CWB and its

Board disappears, and farmers a have marketing choice, there will be more processing on the Prairies. Hewson said he believes the Western Canadian economy will be stimulated in a post-monopoly system by the creation of more value-added processing of wheat, durum and barley on the Prairies. As evidence he pointed to the two canola crushing plants, and oat processing facility here in Yorkton, noting both commodities are marketed freely by producers. “I do believe this change will bring more value-added processing to the Prairies,” he said, adding value-added is what can be realized “when markets operate freely.” Both Korneychuk’s expectation of there being less money for farmers, and Hewson’s opposite vision of better returns to be had are near positions of faith, since until it happens the exact impact of the loss of the CWB is one of sup-

board of directors have a duty to safeguard monies received from the sale of grain,” says Gerrid Gust, Chair of the Wheat Growers. “This is not their personal slush fund. They have no right to use farmers’ funds to advance a political agenda.” Gust continues, “If certain CWB directors wish to take legal action against the federal government they should have to reach into their own pocket. They should not be allowed to reach into mine.” The formal application to the courts is expected to be filed early next week. “The Wheat Growers are looking forward to an open market for wheat and barley,” says Bender. “By taking this action, we hope to prevent the CWB from wasting our money and standing in the way of legislation that will give us the freedom to sell our own grain.”
position. The unknown is always like that, and the likely truth is there will be gains and losses in either scenario. What should be more troublesome to all farmers and all Canadians is the Conservative government’s handling of this issue. Making a change is the prerogative of the government, and with its majority, near inevitable. However, there is an Act governing the CWB, and in that Act previous governments laid out a process for change, and that includes a vote of
farmers. The government is ignoring its own Act. That is scary. Such a heavy-handed approach to change, ignoring its own Act, should not be taken lightly by anyone, especially when the Conservatives have the majority to amend the Act through Parliament, a path open to them, but one they likely fear because it would not be an easy process since Opposition is likely to fight for farmers to have a direct vote on the
issue. If the Conservatives are ready to run rough shod of the Act governing the CWB, what might be the next Act they chose to ignore in the future? That may be the key issue in the current debate, yet it is being lost as both sides battle over their long entrenched views on the CWB, rather than on how the Conservatives are thumbing their noses at the Acts of government, and the Parliamentary system.

No excuse not to vote
By the Canadian Taxpayers Federation The NDP, Saskatchewan Party and Liberals have each released their party’s election platforms and one thing is clear – voters have three very different plans from which to choose. This isn’t one of those elections where someone can sit back and try to excuse not voting by saying “all the parties are the same.” The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) went through each party’s platform and took a look at how much of your money each party wants to spend and calculated stark differences between the platforms (full details available at SpendingTracker.ca.) On top of existing government programs, the NDP have promised to spend another $2.6 billion over the next four years. They want to spend more of your money on health care, education, child care, support for seniors, housing, infrastructure, the environment and seem-
ingly everything else. The NDP apparently thinks every government service needs tons more of your money thrown at it. On top of the $2.6 billion in new spending, the NDP have also promised several tax credits and rebates along with phasing out the small business tax. The latter certainly would be a good move as it would help small businesses stay competitive with Manitoba; which eliminated its small business tax this year. What wasn’t costed in the NDP’s platform was their commitment to share resource revenues with aboriginal reserves or the additional cost to ratepayers for building more wind power rather than natural gas power plants. Both promises certainly aren’t cheap. In fact, according to one report out of the U.S., wind power costs ratepayers about 54 per cent more than natural gas. The NDP plan to pay for some of their commitments by hiking the fees companies pay to extract and sell resources such
as potash. The big problem with that, of course, is that when you set-up a framework that attracts multi-billion dollar investments, and then decide to change it on investors after the fact, it scares the you-know-what out of those looking at making future investments in the province. Who knows what financial damage that would cause? As for the Sask Party, they’ve committed $355 million in new spending over the next four years. More money for hockey rinks, funding for universities and fixing up provincial parks are just a few examples from their platform. The best part of their plan though is the relatively modest total price tag; leaving plenty of financial flexibility to cope with a drop in resource prices, room to weather a possible recession or reduce taxes. The latter is one area where the Sask Party has already delivered great results. The Liberals have proposed to shoot for a whop-
ping $3.4 billion in cuts. That’s right, not additional spending, but reductions in the size and cost of government. You see, in year one, they would push for a 10 per cent reduction in government spending. Once you multiply that savings by four years and subtract their new spending commitments, they’re left with $3.4 billion in savings; which they would use to pay off the debt. Interest cost savings would be used to reduce the PST from 5 per cent to 3 per cent. The Liberals’ zest for finding efficiencies in government is to be commended. However, they’re only running nine candidates so unless the NDP or Sask Party see something they like, you probably won’t see the Liberal platform implemented.So there you have it, each of the three parties clearly aren’t ‘all the same.’ All you have to do is decide the one you like the most.

Firework – all in the name of breast cancer awareness. Below is the link to Victoria Hospital‘s third place winning video http://pinkglovedance. com/competition/entry140 Sponsored by Medline — the creator of the YouTube® sensation Pink Glove Dance and maker of the pink gloves — the national competition included 139 video submissions from hospitals, nursing homes, schools and other organizations from 40 states and Canada. In all, more than 17,000 people were featured in the videos, which are all available for viewing at www. pinkglovedance.com. Victoria Hospital will receive a $2,000 donation from Medline to the hospital‘s breast cancer charity of choice, the Saskatoon Cancer Agency. “We appreciated the opportunity to participate and have been overwhelmed by the support of the video”, said Sharon Griffin, Director of Acute Care, who spearheaded the effort to produce the video. Thank you to all of our staff, physicians, volunteers and community supporters who made the making of this video a fun and
special event. ―In particular, special thank you to Valerie Isbister, a cancer survivor who was the main character in the video, and to Jennifer Maczek, the choreographer who made sure we had so much fun, and to Big Drum Media for their time and expertise in producing an amazing and emotional video that obviously touched many hearts, Griffin said. Victoria Hospital received an amazing 38,053 of the half million-plus votes cast for the 139 videos during the three-week national competition. To date, more than 1.1 million people have viewed all of the videos on YouTube, including more than 76,500 views for Victoria Hospital‘s video. Congratulations to the staff at Victoria Hospital for honoring the hundreds of thousands of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer each year,” said Sue MacInnes, Medline‘s chief marketing officer. The passion and energy the staff at Victoria Hospital displayed is infectious and inspiring. They, along with all of the competitors, are helping to make Medline‘s Pink Glove Dance a ‗movement‘ in every sense of the
word.ǁ Lexington Medical Center in West Columbia, S.C., won first place and Highland Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., won second place. For every case of Medline‘s Generation Pink® gloves purchased, Medline will donate $1.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to fund free mammograms for underserved women. To date, Medline has donated more than $800,000 to the NBCF. One part of Medline‘s national breast cancer awareness program, the original Pink Glove Dance video premiered in November 2009 and featured 200 Portland, Ore. hospital workers wearing pink gloves and dancing in support of breast cancer awareness and prevention. Today, that original video has more than 13 million views on YouTube® and has been the inspiration for hundreds of pink glove dance videos and breast cancer awareness events across the country. A sequel was produced last October featuring 4,000 healthcare workers and breast cancer survivors throughout North America.

NFU say dismantling CWB harmful to young farmers The National Farmers Union (NFU) Youth say that young farmers will bear the brunt of the proposed dismantling of the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) single desk. “The Canadian Wheat Board is a critical piece of the grain marketing infrastructure in Canada. In the short-term, decimated infrastructure will cause major headaches and farms will see losses of income. In the longterm, these losses will be particularly detrimental for young farmers who, being less established, will have fewer resources to weather these kinds of storms,” states Paul Slomp, NFU Youth Vice-President. He
continued: “Since young farmers are, by definition, in this for the long-term, we will be the ones carrying the heaviest burden of a dismantled CWB single desk.” Farmers in the Canadian prairies have benefitted from the existence of the Canadian Wheat Board for 75 years. During that time, grain farmers have seen enormous financial benefits from the existence of the CWB single desk through advantages like grain pooling, capturing price premiums in domestic and international markets, organizing grain transportation logistics, and government financial guarantees, to name a few.
GARBAGE COLLECTION Town of Shellbrook Please note that residential garbage collection will occur on Thursday, November 10th, 2011 due to observance of Remembrance Day on Friday, November 11, 2011. Tara Kerber, Administrator
A number of peer-reviewed economic studies have shown that through the single desk mechanism of the CWB, farmers have earned more than they would have otherwise. Tabled earlier this month, Bill C-18, the Marketing Freedom For Grain Farmers Act, creates a temporary, shadow CWB without the benefits of a single desk—an entity that has until 2016 to either present a plan to privatize, or be dissolved altogether. “The proposed removal of the CWB monopoly extinguishes the already slim prospect of starting a new farming operation. In order for new and young farmers to thrive in their farming businesses, they need a stable operating environment,” says Garrett Stokes, a young grain farmer from Hussar, Alberta. “Without our Wheat Board, we’re at the mercy of huge, multinational grain companies whose only priority will be income for their shareholders. We’re being told that farmers will gain financial stability by selling directly to corporations.
Anyone who believes this is being horribly misled. The existence of the CWB single-desk provides much needed consistency on the business and marketing side of our farms.” “When the CWB was first established, there were no multilateral trade agreements or organizations like NAFTA or the WTO that governed what kind of domestic policies could be put in place in Canada. The Canadian government and grain farmers were free to work together to establish the CWB,” Slomp explains. “In today’s globalized world, we are not as lucky. Canada has signed on to a number of binding multilateral and bilateral trade agreements, which greatly restrict the kinds of domestic policies the Canadian government can put in place. If the single desk of the CWB is dismantled now through Bill C-18, and we find out in a few years that we made a mistake, we will not be able to re-establish it. This is a mistake we cannot undo. More importantly, this is a
mistake that young farmers and the farmers of the future cannot undo. We
must tread with extreme caution.”

The market goes up and down and so does your stress level. Are you uncomfortable with your investments or confident their value will be there when you need it? Investing for the future can be tricky. There are so many things to consider, including how much investment risk - the potential for your portfolio to decline in value over the short term you’re comfortable with. To help you get a solid read on what’s right for you, here are some tips for separating facts from feeling to create a comfortable portfolio that works. Take your time to make the right decisions based on your personal risk level Carefully assess the investments from which your portfolio will be constructed. If you are uncomfortable with risk, focus on capital preservation and income generation in a portfolio comprised mainly of the more stable fixed-
income type investments. As your capacity for risk increases, add equities for a potentially higher rate of return and potentially higher volatility. Determine your personal capacity for investment risk • Ask yourself factbased questions like this: o What is my investment timeframe? If it’s less than four years, don’t invest in higher risk assets. If you have an investment horizon beyond ten years, experts believe that you should invest in a more aggressive portfolio because historical trends show that, over the long term, you will benefit from a higher rate of return with ample time to recover from shortterm volatility. • Ask yourself feeling-based questions like this: o Can I sleep soundly at night? Regardless of your investment horizon, the way you feel in the
short term when the markets go through a severe decline will not change. Feeling-based questions should serve as a tool to prepare you for what you should expect and focus your logic and emotions to identify a consistent pattern of how you perceive investment risk and what you are realistically capable of withstanding. The biggest mistake investors make is to overstate their comfort level with risk because that often leads to abandoning their investment strategy at the first sign of volatility. When you choose the right strategy from the start and stick with it, you will be rewarded over the long term. Of course, you should revisit your portfolio and investment strategy as conditions and your financial and life goals change to keep it in tune with you. With so many different types of investment prod-
Cargill confirms clubroot presence in two North Central Sask crops Cargill confirmed identifying canola plants that have tested positive for the presence of Plasmodiophora brassicae, the soil born pathogen commonly known as clubroot, in two disease observation nurseries in Saskatchewan. While evaluating plants at two locations in
North Central SK, Cargill plant scientists observed nodules on certain canola plants. There were no above ground symptoms, and the nodules were observed only because the plants were pulled from the ground for whole-plant observation. Plant root tissue and soil samples from this site
were sent by Cargill to an independent lab for analysis. An analysis of plant tissue samples, using a DNA test, were positive for the presence of the clubroot pathogen. In accordance with the Saskatchewan Pest Control Act, Cargill has restricted access to the location where the affected

LUNCH AT SCOTIABANK -- Team Scotia pitched in for a good cause October 28 as staff from the Shellbrook Scotiabank hosted a hotdog sale raising $758.67 for the Shellbrook and Area Ministerial Association’s Christmas hampers fund. Pictured here are ScotiaBank staffers Sheri Mortensen, Kelsey Fitch and Branch Manager, Connie Bahnuick.

plants were found. “Upon discovering the presence of clubroot, we notified grain growers and owners of lands around the disease observation nurseries and provided them with the guidance and resources they required to manage the issue in a timely and cautious manner,” said Lorin DeBonte, assistant vice president, Research and Development for Cargill Specialty Canola. In an abundance of caution, Cargill is working with the Ministry of Agriculture, the Canola Council of Canada and the impacted grain growers and landowners to manage the confirmed sites in accordance with the Saskatchewan clubroot management plan. “Cargill strives to ensure the highest safety, health and environmental standards. Our practices include actively developing disease management plans for canola stakeholders,” DeBonte added. Cargill continues to maintain clubroot management protocols in accordance with the Canola Council of Canada clubroot initiatives in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba to continually improve sanitation processes for trialing and equipment.

NELSON - Mrs. Beryl Jean Jan. 9, 1925 – Oct. 21, 2011
It is with great sadness, that the family of Beryl Jean Nelson (Nee Tompkins) announces her passing, on Friday Oct 21, 2011 at the age of 86. She was born in Winnipeg on Jan 9. 1925. Beryl grew up in Erikson B.C. where she worked in a packing shed in her teens, then in Vancouver at Safeway, the Rogers Sugar Refinery and at Boeing helping build war planes that are still today being used for commercial use in Hay River and Yellowknife. In 1944 -1946 Beryl attended the Covenant Bible College in Prince Albert, and was holding Sunday services in
the Silent Call area when she met her future husband Gunnar. They married on Dec 22/1946. They had 2 sons and 2 daughters. They farmed in the Park Valley area until they sold the farm and moved to Canwood. Beryl was predeceased by her husband Gunnar on October 19th of 1983, an infant at birth, her parents John and Annie Tompkins, a sister Ruth Fisher, and brothers Kenneth Tompkins and Charles Carmichael. Beryl is survived by her sons Roger and Clayton (Nancy) and her daughters Karen (Fred Arcand) and Charlotte Nelson (Ron Anderson) as well as a sister Stella Tedford; a brother in law Gordon Gillies, sister’s in law, Marie Tompkins, and Joan Nelson, 17 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren
and numerous nieces and nephews. There was a private family service held at the Concordia Church in the Ordale District. Beryl was laid to rest in the Silent Call Cemetery. Pastor Doug Schmirler was the officiant. Pallbearers were her grandsons: Greg Nelson, Derek Nelson, Stephen Bather, Matthew Bather, Brian Arcand and James Arcand. There were readings by Charlane Balman and Leah Nelson. Special music was performed by Ashley Skavlebo, Kathy Buckingham, Gail Diehl, Sheila Smith & Vivian Taylor. Emailed condolences sent to www.beaulacfuneralhome.com will be forwarded to the family. Beau”Lac” Funeral Home was entrusted with the arrangements.
looking over my shoulder, reminiscing about the days that are passed, passed maybe, but not forgotten. Although there are people who say it does no good to look at the past, I say ‘Why not’.? I believe, and I’m sure not alone in thinking this, that we have to look at the past in order to learn from our experiences and mistakes. Maybe there are people who believe that they have never made mistakes, and if that’s true then the ranks of the saints will be increasing. However we ‘normal’ folks will continue to test the quality of today be comparing it to yesterday. Poverty and homelessness appear to be on the rise according to the media which would indicate that a problem that was viewed yesterday as troubling is today being viewed as serious. The problem of poverty amongst seniors has been with us for a good many years and no amount of promises of great tomorrows has been able to change that. Huge surges in the new home and condo construction markets are in evidence but as yet no big surge in housing for those people on a limited income. The big question is ‘why’?. The social service department must be totally over their budget helping the poor with housing as the rental prices seem to be going sky high. Food banks are constantly asking for more and more help with donations of food for those in need, and a great thank you has to go to every one who does contribute, but they know that it will only get worse if action is not
taken to help those in need. It may all sounds like doom and gloom, what with the Rough Riders out of the playoffs and all. However the simple fact is that both the Rough Riders’ management and the future government of this province are going to have to take a long hard look at what is wrong with their operation and take steps to correct it. We will be celebrating armistice day on the 11th and when we are considering the sacrifices made by all those veterans of W.W.2, Korea, Afghanistan and every other country young men and women of Canada have served in we should not forget that solemn promise made, “We will remember them”. Not just on that one particular day but on every day that passes, continuing to thank them and ensuring that not one veteran, whether healthy or otherwise is forgotten Today we live with the hope that indeed tomorrow is going to be beneficial for every one and not just the ‘haves’. We may do well also to remember that 167,000 seniors, and that number is growing every year, have fewer and fewer tomorrows left, so today would be a good day for any changes to be made. In the mean time seniors will continue to make the best of what they have today, and also help those folk in need around us. It’s what we did yesterday, and what we plan to do tomorrow. Keep active, stay healthy and be kind to each other. Len Fallows. President SSAI.
Saskatchewan Seniors Association newsletter As you read this letter the election will probably be over and all the fuss and rah rah rah will be over for 4 more years. I hope that all the signs that decorated front lawns, streets and highways will be collected and either saved for another year or disposed of in a clean environmental mode. When all the dust has settled and the successful candidates have congratulated each other it will be time to get down to business and start to fulfill all the big promises made. Lots of promises were made and lots of money it seems to be spent, I just hope that some of the money comes the way of the poor, the sick and the needy I had a couple of questions that I would like to have asked Mr. Wall. I f as you say you don’t like rent controls, then how about a rent freeze until such time as the promises you have made to build thousands more housing units for those people on limited income is a fact.?. If any of the housing is for seniors then please remember these three words in association
Buying? Selling? Classifieds Work!
with their housing needs: Affordable, Accessible and Decent. Affordable speaks for itself, accessible is a reminder not to have 80 and 90 year olds walking up and down multi flights of stairs, and decent just means that they deserve accommodations that will enable them to continue to live in a place that they can be pleased and proud of. Another question for you Mr Wall. You have reminded us constantly just how pleased you are that you have taken many thousands of seniors off the tax rolls and I for one commend you for that. However, have you given any consideration to the down side of that particular move?. I wonder do you realize that by doing that you have taken money out of their pockets. For instance, if as seniors we are no longer paying taxes, how do we get back the money we have to spend when on our doctors advise we have to travel long distances to be examined, diagnosed and treated. When we were paying taxes I could at least claim some of the expenses related to travel, parking and meals, but if we are not paying taxes all that expense comes directly out of our own pockets. In order for you to make you and your party popular with seniors you did something that now causes me and thousands like me to spend money that we can ill afford. From paying minimal taxes to paying maximum expenses, this is surely a case of good intentions being overtaken by poor consequences.. As a senior I do admit to spending quite some time

Quick start to NHL season for Kings’ goalie It didn’t take long for the Los Angeles Kings to settle on their No. 1 goalie for the 2011-12 National Hockey League season. In fact, it was Quick. In fact, it is Quick. Jonathan Quick, that is. The Kings’ goalie, part of a Jonathan combo in LaLa Land (Jonathan Bernier is the Kings’ other netminder) has left no doubt as to whom coach Terry Murray considers No. 1 after he zoomed off to a 5-0 start which included three consecutive shutouts and a goalless streak of 188 minutes and 10 seconds. (The shutout streak finally ended in Game 4, after 202 minutes and 11 seconds). Quick’s goals-against-average after six games was 0.81 per game, and his save percentage was an astonishing .974, which was aided, of course, by 84 consecutive stops during his run of three zeroes. A .974 save percentage? As the kids today would say, that’s sick. That’s giving up 26 goals on 1,000 shots, which is closer to what a brick wall might do than a human being wearing leather pads and flashing a quick — Jonathan Quick — glove. The all-time one-season save percentage record is .941, established in 197071 by Jacques Plante of the Canadiens. “You’ve got to give the goaltender a lot of credit,” said Murray. “He’s focused, he’s dialed in to the play and aggressive to the shots.” “I think he’s always been a great goalie,”
defenceman Rob Scuderi told Helene Elliott of the L.A. Times. “What he’s done is no surprise to anyone in here. I think it’s all just clicking for him now.” Quick, who grew up in Connecticut and was thirdstring goalie for the U.S. in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, has a number of goals in mind this year, one of which is obviously to win the first Stanley Cup for his Kings. Goal No. 2, however, might be to keep New York Islanders’ Mike Moulson from scoring. Moulson, a bit of a sniper with backto-back 30-goal seasons, happens to be Quick’s brother-in-law (the two NHLers married sisters). The two teams clash Feb. 11 in Uniondale. No matter who wins the battle that night — and the betting here is on the Kings’ goalie — the trashtalking will start immediately. Quickly, that is. • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe.com: “Ohio State is paying interim football coach Luke Fickell $775,000 this year. That’s almost as much as some past Buckeye players.” • R.J. Currie of sportsdeke.com: “The NY Jets traded disgruntled receiver Derrick Mason to the Texans. In return they’ll get a gruntled draft pick.” • Norman Chad of the Washington Post, on the NBA labour dispute: “Once again, we are faced with a preposterous labour-management divide in an industry that pays out weekly employee salaries with more zeroes
Bruce Penton than a Justin Verlander box score.” • Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle: The Raiders had 12 men on the field one play Sunday, and 10 on another play. Coach HueJax should make his coaches and players watch the “Sesame Street” episode sponsored by the Number 11.” • Comedy writer Jerry Perisho: “The NCAA is considering a plan that would pay student athletes on scholarship $2,000 while in school. It’s to help pay for expenses beyond books, tuition and housing; in other words, it’s bail money.” • R.J. Currie of sportsdeke.com: “A cheerleader performing before a crowd at the Pan Am Games accidentally fell into a swimming pool. On the bright side, she did get the wave started.” • Headline at TheOnion. com: “John Madden agrees to work as consultant for Raiders concession stand.” • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “In another sign of these bad economic times, the Lingerie Football League’s Miami Caliente has ceased operations.

Littlejohn, on the Bears’ Devin Hester getting slapped on the back of the head while standing in a casino line: “It turned out to be Jim Harbaugh offering a handshake.” • Ostler again: “Sam Spear wants the NFL to apply the ‘tuck’ rule to coaches who untuck their
shirts to celebrate a victory, especially if the coach happens to be over the calorie cap.” • One more from Ostler: “A 100-year-old man recently ran a marathon. The man, Fauja Singh, ran his first marathon at age 89. Wonderful, inspiring story. It shows me that I have a few more decades before I need to give up doughnuts and beer and get serious about shaping up.” • Another one from Norman Chad, this time from Twitter, referring to a (yawn) 6-3 final score: “Due to an unusual ‘quality control’ mechanism, my DirecTV NFL
Sunday Ticket package has stopped showing the Seahawks-Browns game.” • Steve Simmons in the Toronto Sun, quoting Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix, who’s 71 years old: “It’s just a number. As long as I have the same energy level and enthusiasm, it doesn’t matter how old you are. It’s football. It’s not brain surgery.” • David Letterman on CBS: “So the guy who shot Gadhafi was wearing a Yankees cap. If he’d had a Boston Red Sox hat on he probably would have missed.” Comment?
